Recap / Regular Show S 03 Ep 30 Trucker Hall Of Fame

Written by Toby Jones & Calvin Wong

Mordecai and Rigby go with Muscle Man on a road trip to spread his father's ashes.

This episode provides examples of:

  • Big "NO!": When Muscle Man discovers the truth about his dad.
  • Broken Pedestal: Subverted. Muscle Man was mad at his dad for lying to him but he later forgives him.
  • Dead Man Writing: Muscle Dad writes this knowing that his son would eventually find out about him lying about his job.
  • Disney Villain Death: The truckers are sent falling off a cliff by the ghost of Muscle Man's father when they tried to run Muscle Man, Mordecai, and Rigby down with their big rig. Their big rig promptly explodes on impact.
  • Papa Wolf: Muscle Dad
  • Starts With Muscle Dad's Funeral
  • What Could Have Been and Bowdlerization: The dialogue between Muscle Man and Muscle Dad about needing an umbrella for prom was originally supposed to be a "raincoat." The Cartoon Network censors saw right through the condom innuendo and asked J.G. Quintel and company to change it to something less offensive.
    • On the What Could Have Been front, Terry "Hulk" Hogan was originally planned to be the voice of Muscle Man's father.
