Recap / Legend Of The Three Caballeros S 1 E 13 Sheldgoose Square Dance

Go To

The Caballeros and friends go off for their final battle with Baron von Sheldgoose and a resurrected Lord Felldrake.

  • Back for the Finale: The Moon-Bots, Lava Lizards, Yokai, Sheldgoose's ancestors, the termites and Tyrone the dragon on the villains' side; the Roman gods, the goblins, King Arthur, the Presidential Ghosts, the Minotaur and the Moai commander on the heroes' side.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Pretty much everyone gets a moment like this at some point during the episode.
    • First, when Sheldgoose spawns the Moon-Bots from Episode 3, Xandra and the Caballeros spawns the Roman gods from Episode 4 to ward off the Moon-Bots.

    • Sheldgoose then spawns the Lava Lizards from Episode 5. The heroes retaliate with the goblins and King Vomit from Episode 6.
    • The Yokai from Episode 10 appears from Sheldgoose's zoom point. King Arthur from Episode 11 appears from Xandra's zoom point.
    • The Presidential Ghosts from Episode 7 are summoned to fight Sheldgoose's ancestors from Episode 10.
    • The Minotaur from Episode 2 is summoned to fight the termites from Episode 4.
    • The Moai commander from Episode 5 returns to save the heroes from the dragon in Episode 11.
    • Even Daisy, April, May, June, and the bear rug appears to knock Sheldgoose off of Leopold, so that the Caballeros can continue to re-imprison Lord Felldrake in the staff.
    • Ari uses a cup of the "wizard-pool" water to re-energize Xandra's powers.
    • It could be argued that Sheldgoose inadvertently had the biggest moment by destroying Felldrake's staff, restoring the world back to normal.

  • Big Good: As a bit of a surprising twist, we learn that there is one; the wizard Blazebeak, whose life-force has been powering the magical amulets and protecting the Caballeros all this time.
  • Brick Joke: When it gets to the scene of the Caballeros about to fight Felldrake from the first episode, Xandra pauses the scene and asks if everyone is caught up.
  • Continuity Cavalcade: Pretty much every important character from previous adventures return here to aid in the battle.
  • Deus ex Machina: The "wizard pool", containing the spirit of the wizard Blazebeak and powering the amulets, has not been established earlier in the show - yet, without falling into it, the Caballeros wouldn't have been able to defeat Felldrake.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: The Three Caballeros already Took a Level in Badass after training with King Arthur. Here, they temporarily become superpowered after "falling into a wizard pool" and gaining the powers of their amulets.

  • Fantastically Indifferent: May, after Felldrake has essentially destroyed the world, and everyone is floating in space, only reacts with a dry "There goes the neighborhood."
  • Final Exam Finale: Sheldgoose summons obstacles from past to hinder the heroes while the heroes summon allies to counter them. See Back for the Finale.
  • Hurricane of Puns: After gaining magical powers, Sheldgoose begins slinging puns in a way that would have made Jafar proud.
  • Kick the Dog: Felldrake tells Xandra how much he enjoyed having her be his slave and that he's going to do so again.
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: When reborn into a physical being, Felldrake, before reaching his adult form, starts to react to the personalities of his aging forms, such as crying as a baby or growing hormonal as a teenager.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: A villainous version, Sheldgoose has this reaction when he thought breaking the staff killed Felldrake.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Sheldgoose breaks Felldrake's staff, returning the world to normal and trapping Felldrake inside him.
  • One-Winged Angel: Felldrake's final form is a gigantic, all-powerful demon.
  • Pubescent Braces: Felldrake inexplicably gains a pair in his teenager form as he's going through his aging stages after being reborn from the staff.
  • Sequel Hook: The villains may have been defeated, but they aren't destroyed. The last scene of the episode has them fly off to seek the help of "an old friend" living in a legged house.
  • Series Continuity Error: All the villains summoned by Sheldgoose were allied with him at one point - except for Tyrone the dragon, who was summoned by April, May and June in "Thanks a Camelot" and had nothing to do with Sheldgoose or Felldrake.
  • Swirlie: Sheldgoose get knocked head-first in his golden toilet by the girls and the Bear Rug.
  • Wham Shot: Felldrake may have been defeated, and his staff may have been destroyed, but he still lives on. Only now, he's stuck inside Sheldgoose's body. They are also flying towards a house with legs...
