Recap / Legend Of The Three Caballeros S 1 E 08 Nazca Racing

Go To

Felldrake heads to the Nazca lines to set a trap for the Caballeros. Meanwhile April, May, and June sneak into Sheldgoose's mansion.

  • Abnormal Ammo: One of the weapons Sheldgoose draws is a gun that shoots sharks.
  • Adults Are More Anthropomorphic: Sheldgoose has a picture where he is surrounded by non-anthropomorphic Rottweiler pups wearing sunglasses - implied to be his bodyguards, who are bipedal, fully-clothed Rottweilers.

  • All Webbed Up: Donald ends up tangled in one of Clementine's spider webs.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: When Mono comes out from the Nazca dimension, he appears to have green fur. Justified, as he's a magical being rather than an actual monkey.
  • Angry Guard Dog: Sheldgoose's Rottweiler bodyguards are anthropomorphic versions of this.
  • Art Initiates Life: Everything drawn by a chalk becomes "real" in the Nazca dimension. At the end of the episode, the Caballeros take advantage of this to resurrect Handzy.
  • Art Shift: Most of "Nazca Racing" takes place in a world made of chalk drawings.
  • Cute Kitten: The two "little orphans" that scam José are anthropomorphic cats, who claim to collect donations so that they can buy mittens.
  • Disney Death: Handzy is erased by Felldrake, but the Caballeros re-draw her.
  • Dog Stereotype: Sheldgoose's security guards are Rottweilers.

  • Even Evil Has Standards: Xandra points out that Felldrake wouldn't destroy the Earth because he lives on it. Felldrake later confirms it, saying "I'm evil, not crazy."
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys: Mono is a friendly, helpful monkey living in the Nazca dimension.
  • Evil Gloating: Lampshaded. Felldrake criticizes Sheldgoose for telling the Caballeros their plan after trapping them.
  • Furry Reminder: Sheldgoose's security guards bark and growl while chasing the three nieces. One of them actually speaks the words "bark" and "growl" at the end of the chase.
  • Giant Spider: One of the many inhabitants in the Nazca dimension is Clementine, a giant spider that is easily angered.
  • Has Two Thumbs and...: Handzy tries to do the joke, but sadly, she was drawn with only one thumb, and is disappointed that she can't give things two thumbs up. When she's redrawn at the end, Donald gives her a second (badly drawn) thumb.

  • Heartwarming Orphan: The two scammers pretend to be this, tricking José into giving them a donation.
  • Kill It with Fire: Said word for word by Donald when Clementine wakes up. Right after the others have tried to calm her down.
  • Lured into a Trap: Mono claims that Felldrake is after the Nazca Gyroscope, which keeps the Earth spinning around the Earth. Turns out he was leading the Caballeros to be trapped by Felldrake, whose real plan is to leave them inside Nazca World, then erase their images on the surface, which would erase them from existence.
  • Mic Drop: After his Evil Gloating, Sheldgoose draws a microphone just so he can drop it.
  • Mythology Gag: José offers to show Mono his watercolor collection, likely referencing the painted portrait of Brazil he had showed Donald in the original Saludos Amigos film.
  • Older Than They Look: The two cats that scam José look like adorable kittens, but once they succeed, they start to talk in deep voices, implying that they were adults with a child-like appearance.
  • Shout-Out: As Mono leads the Caballeros to the core of Earth, they hold each other's hands and dance along a road just like the protagonists of The Wizard of Oz. As Sheldgoose looks at them, he says "you're off to see the wonderful wizard of me", to drive the reference home.
  • Super Gullible: Apparently the reason José is in Perpetual Poverty is because he keeps giving his money away to bogus charities that play to his kind heart as happens with the "mittens for kittens" at the start of the episode.
  • Terrible Artist: Donald is revealed as one in this episode, all of his drawings turning out as scribbly messes.
  • Worthless Yellow Rocks: The girls break into Sheldgoose's mansion looking for signs of Felldrake's lair, or at least a way to turn off the magic barrier surrounding the mansion. May is disappointed that all they can find is a safe full of money and gold. "Maybe it's behind it?"
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After Mono leads the Caballeros into the trap, Felldrake traps him along with them.

How well does it match the trope?
