Recap / All Hail King Julien S 03 E 11 Get Off My Lawn

Go To

When Julien decides he needs a way to be able to protect himself when Clover is not around, Pancho introduces him to the shady bat Andy Fairfax, who sells him self-defense scorpions. It doesn't take too long for Julien to decide that the entire kingdom would be safer if everyone had scorpions.


  • Call-Back: When Clover leaves the kingdom upset that she isn't needed any more, she runs into Fred the Giant Scorpion, who has been working on his anger management issues and helps Clover deal with hers.

  • Furry Confusion: Fred the Giant Scorpion tries to help out with the scorpion situation, but decides they have a pretty sweet party going on and joins them, taking the opportunity to socialize and flirt.
    Fred: Hey! Those are my friends and potential love interests your pulverizing!
  • Mexican Standoff: Willie, Horst and Pancho get into a scorpion armed variant of this over a mango.
  • Scary Scorpions: As self-defense weapons!
  • Space Whale Aesop: While the episode is a metaphor for gun control, the use of scorpions as a stand in for guns deliberately stretches the metaphor so far that it falls apart around the point where the scorpions decide to rebel and take over the kingdom.
    Andy: Because we know scorpions don't sting lemurs, lemurs sting lemurs!
    Maurice: That doesn't make any sense.

  • Too Dumb to Live: When Willie accidentally gets attacked by his own scorpion, other lemurs attempt to help him... by throwing their scorpions at him.
  • Trigger Happy: The main conflict of the episode is everyone becomes way too eager to try and solve all their problems by throwing scorpions at them.
