Recap / My Gym Partners A Monkey S 1 E 11 Amazon Kevin

Go To

Adam writes to his crocodile hunting celebrity idol, Amazon Kevin, requesting him to come to his school. Sure enough, he does, but this doesn't bode well with the other students and teachers.

  • Animal Stampede: The students of CDMS stampede after Amazon Kevin.
  • Ax-Crazy: Jake went this, and tried to kill Amazon Kevin.
    Jake: Hey, Amazon Kevin! I got something I wanna ax you!
  • Bottle Episode: It may be unintentional, but this episode featured only two scenes and two locations. The first was The Lyon House, where Adam watched TV for the first two minutes, and the next nine minutes took place entirely within the auditorium. I guess there was also one brief scene in the gymnasium in the end, but that was about it.

  • Fake Ultimate Hero: As it turned out, all of Kevin's incredible fights with wild animals were staged. Adam was shocked and disappointed to hear that Amazon Kevin, his hero of two years, whom he looked up to, was a fraud all along.
  • Fantastic Racism: Animals are treated like oppressed minorities in this episode, when regarding the way Amazon Kevin treats them. The animals make comments like "Our kind has suffered in silence." and "He's been smacking our kind around for generations."
  • Fingerless Hands: This comes in the way of the animals going into the closet, to take down Kevin.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Lupe makes a remark, implying that she thinks she's gone to Hell.
    Lupe: It's happened! We've all died and gone to the bad place!
  • Oh, Crap!: Kevin, when he realized he had just raved about beating up crocodiles and such in a school full of wild, infuriated animals.

  • Wedgie: Adam gets a massive wedgie, being hanged by his underwear, from a stage hook in the auditorium.
  • You Monster!: This was the reception, when Adam got Amazon Kevin to come to the school.

How well does it match the trope?
