Recap / Legend Of The Three Caballeros S 1 E 05 No Man Is An Easter Island

Go To

Donald has a date with Daisy. Meanwhile Felldrake tries to unleash Lava Lizards onto the world.

  • Accidental Dance Craze: The Moai mistake Donald's angry emotes as a dance move. This ends up causing the "Eureka!" Moment that saves the day.
  • Adipose Rex: The Lava Lizard Queen is almost perfectly round, unlike her slender minions.
  • Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: The girls don't have a high opinion of Donald, but in this episode they comfort him after Daisy breaks up with him, and let him know that keeping his adventures a secret was selfless of him.

  • Convection Schmonvection: Sheldgoose and the Caballeros get next to lava without any ill effect.
  • Eenie, Meenie, Miny Moai: The Moai are the guardians of Easter Island. Their bodies are buried underground, keeping the Lava Lizards at bay.
  • Fiery Salamander: The Lava Lizards are salamanders made up of lava. They solidify if they hit the water.
  • Gentle Giant: Despite being gigantic rock warriors, the Moai are pretty chill guys.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: The Moai keep the Lava Lizard in check this way. Shown when the lizards try to talk to Sheldgoose and Felldrake, but keep getting stomped after every other word.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: Xandra warns Donald not to tell Daisy that he's one of the Three Caballeros, since it would leave her in danger from Felldrake and his minions.
  • Kick the Dog: Daisy coldly breaks up with Donald in a letter, telling him to never contact her again, and leaving him with the check, making him enraged.

  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: The Lava Lizards speak, like, this way.
  • Shockingly Expensive Bill: The bill for Donald's dinner unfolds down the table.
  • Shout-Out: Sheldgoose tricking the Moai into throwing a luau via hypnosis is one to Aladdin. Certainly helps that Felldrake's staff resembles Jafar's own staff (which he himself used to hypnotise the Sultan).
  • Taken for Granite: The Lava Lizard Queen sinks into the ocean and cools into a solid rock statue.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: The Moai might have to get back in the sand and never take another vacation, but Ari leaves them a radio so they can listen to music.
  • Totem Pole Trench: April, May and June do this to pose as a waiter at a fancy restaurant.
  • Two-Timer Date: An unwilling example from Donald, who keeps getting dragged away from his date with Daisy to battle Felldrake at Easter Island. Eventually, Daisy gets tired and leaves him again.

How well does it match the trope?
