Recap: Kim Possible S 1 E 21 Low Budget

When Kim's mission pants get ruined miles from the nearest Club Banana, she reluctantly resorts to the discount offerings at Smarty Mart. Meanwhile, low-budget villain Frugal Lucre threatens to take down the Internet unless everyone sends him a dollar.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Basement-Dweller: Frugal Lucre lives in his mother's basement (hey, lairs are expensive!).
  • Do Not Adjust Your Set: Frugal Lucre's broadcast.
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: The Internet-desroying virus is incorporated into the barcode of a can of Vienna sausages. Ron searches Smarty Mart for that specific can while Kim chases Lucre.
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: Frugal Lucre disguises himself with a bogus accent and stick-on beard and mustache to broadcast his threats.
  • You Get What You Pay For: Frugal Lucre's version of a Shark Pool is a kiddie wading pool full of snapping turtles. They immediately retreat into their shells when Kim and Ron get loose from their bonds.
