Episode Summary

This Yang Isn't Brought to You By... / Stuck
This Yang Isn't Brought to You By...: Yang wants to buy the new portable gaming system the Y Cube 9000 . The only problem is there's only one left. But when a mysterious sponsor named Shill Shore sees him fight, he wants him to sponsor GreedCo toys for money. So Yang sells his dignity, unaware that the toys he's endorsing are posing serious harm to children. Can Yin bring Yang to his senses and get him to do the right thing? Stuck: Yin, Yang, Lena, and Roger Jr. are bored out of their minds until a mysterious mail carrier (Smoke in disguise) gives them a coupon for a free vacation to an island. Even though they all figure that it's probably a trap, they decide to go anyways since it will be more exciting than what they have been doing, but Dave insists that he comes along. But when they get to the island, not only does it turn out to be a trap, it turns out to be a much better trap then they expected it to be and everyone except Dave ends up getting captured by Smoke. Now it's up to Dave to find a way to defeat Smoke and her three evil hench-creatures. Can Dave possibly do the job alone, or will he need help as well?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

      2. Various characters saying that something is probably a trap, falling for it, and getting stuck by it in Stuck.

    • It's learned in this episode that Dave has the ability to bend trees to his will and help him fight against evil villains if the need arises.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (A cute seal appears on-screen)
      Lena: Aw, you're so precious. This island isn't a trap at all. Why, it's a place filled with wonders and delight!
      (Seal reveals himself as Clever-chu and pulls out a wooden hammer, scene shifts to Yin)
      Lena: Help! I'm being attacked by a cosmic irony!
      Roger Jr.: (off-screen I have no idea what a cosmic irony is, but it hurts!

    • Smoke: You must be a clever one to have avoided each of my forever friends.
      Dave: Actually, my friends wouldn't let me tag along.
      Smoke: Ah! Then they were holding you back as a secret weapon!
      (Yin, Yang, Lena and Roger Jr. all laugh hysterically)

  • NOTES (0)


    • Family Guy: The board game that Yin, Yang, Lena, and Roger Jr. play at the beginning of Stuck is called Giggity Giggity. The board game's name is also the exact same catch-phrase as the character of Quagmire, who appears on the popular prime-time animated series.

    • Reality T.V.: When the camera shows Yang in a room where he confesses about his feelings about what was going on during Stuck, it parodies the way Reality Shows such as The Real World and Road Rules take time out from focusing on the main plot of the show to get confidential information from the cast-members.

    • Lost: The way the word "Stuck" floats in the T.V. screen after the five good guys gets stuck is a parody of the way the Lost T.V. show's title screen floats in. Additionaly, the plot of Stuck is also similar to the T.V. show as the protagonists get stuck on an island and have to fight evil forces so they can get off, while dealing with creepy voices in the jungle island.

    • Field of Dreams: The part where Dave is hearing voices and doesn't know where they're coming from could be a reference to the 1989 masterpiece in which Kevin Costner hears a voice and doesn't know where its coming from.

    • The Y Cube 9000 Portable Gaming System: This references various Nintendo systems on quite a few levels. It references the Nintendo Game Boy/D.S. Portable Gaming Systems and how popular they are in being the fastest, best selling Video Game Systems in history; its name is a parody of both the Nintendo Game Cube and the Nintendo 64; and it finally references the Nintendo Wii when the only reason the Pink Monster bought all the game systems was to sell them on Foo-Bay, and several people in real life only bought the Nintendo Wii so they could sell them at increased prices on Ebay.
