Recap / Kim Possible S 2 E 24 Oh Boyz

Airdate: April 23rd of 2004

To help his son's ongoing quest to become a pop sensation, SSS kidnaps the Oh Boyz, a famous boy band, to blackmail their record company. The plan backfires when Ron and Rufus wind up captured along with the group and the record executive, finding the Oh Boyz' disappearance to be a profit windfall, is in no hurry to help. As a result, Kim's got to rescue Ron, Rufus and the Oh Boyz on her own.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Black Comedy: The reality show Kim hitches a ride with: "Man Overboard," where viewers vote which contestant gets thrown off a boat in the middle of ocean while the other contestants decide whether or not to throw him a life preserver. It's still better than the cameraman's last show: "Truth or Volcano."
  • Disappeared Artists Are Better: The Oh Boyz' kidnapping put them in the news and revitalized their flagging album sales.
  • The Dog Bites Back: The record executive, tired of the way the Oh Boyz treat him, decides to have no interest in paying the ransom after he discovers their albums are selling like mad because they've disappeared.
  • Dude Magnet: Upon seeing Kim for the first time, all four members of the Oh Boyz immediately express an interest in her, which she's obviously flattered by.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: All the villains in prison are looking very uncomfortable with Junior's concert at the end of the episode. Except for Senior, of course.
  • Karma Houdini: While their long-suffering manager is punished for abandoning them, the Oh Boyz themselves are never called out for treating everyone like crap.
  • Musical Episode: Being a boy band, the Oh boyz get plenty chances to sing their songs. Senor Senior Junior also gets to perform a reprise of one of the band's songs in jail.
  • The Prima Donna: The Oh Boyz are rather full of themselves and demanding.
  • You Can Keep Her: The group's manager is perfectly happy to let them stay kidnapped — they were difficult to deal with and their concert attendance had been falling off to the point where they were losing rather than making money at each appearance. Better yet, from his point of view, the group's disappearance has rekindled their fame and sold lots of albums.
