Recap / Legend Of The Three Caballeros S 1 E 12 Shangri La Di Da

Go To

Donald and Daisy take a vacation at Shangri-La, and get stuck there trying to work through Donald's anger issues, while the rest of the gang go to confront Lord Felldrake and Sheldgoose to get back the magical amulets.

  • Big Damn Kiss: Between Donald and Daisy just before Donald goes off to help the others.
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: The inhabitants of Shangri-La are a group of musically talented yetis, with a color scheme resembling the Matterhorn yeti from Disneyland.

  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: After Donald overcomes his anger issues, the Yetis tell them that he and Daisy are now problem free, are free to leave Shangri-La, and that they've removed the invisible magic shock collars that would have kept them from leaving anyway.
  • The Cameo: Scrooge McDuck (in his classic DuckTales colors and voiced by Eric Bauza) makes a short appearance when Ari's device accidentally blows a hole in his money bin... all the way from New Quackmore.
  • Character Development: Donald learns how to control his unbridled rage after having his Disney Acid Sequence (thanks in part to Sheldgoose destroying Donald's amulet).
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Xandra VS Sheldgoose's security guards. She charges at them — and one three-second Battle Discretion Shot later, she's beaten them both into a pulp.

  • Disney Acid Sequence: Donald goes through an impressive one while fighting his anger issues, where the visuals briefly become reminiscent of the trippier parts of The Three Caballeros movie, and then turn into a rather surreal visual recap of the series so far.
  • Magically Binding Contract: Part of staying at Shangri-La. Luckily, as magical contracts go, compared to trading your voice for humanity (which also nearly resulted in the destruction of the world), having to stay in a beautiful magical resort until all your problems are solved is relatively benign (if slightly annoying).
  • Mythology Gag: Donald's anger taking the shape of a hulking giant has been done before in the Mickey Mouse (2013) short "Split Decisions".
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Sheldgoose destroying Donald's amulet is what caused the latter to overcome his anger in the first place.

  • The Shangri-La: Naturally, this time inhabited by a race of Yetis.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The Caballeros, after King Arthur's training, are a lot more combat-ready than before.

How well does it match the trope?
