Recap / My Gym Partners A Monkey S 1 E 4 Bad News Bear

Go To

After unlawfully using the fish tube, Adam and Jake get the respective punishments of shadowing for a new student and doing the secretary's filing.

  • Absentee Actor: Windsor.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Ding Bang Panda was a perfect example of this. Plus, the title is a reference to this.
  • Cheek Copy: Jake made 10,000 photo copies of his butt. By doing this, he only makes more filing work for himself.
  • Delinquent: Larry Raccoon—and according to Principal Pixiefrog, Larry's the only student in the history of CDMS to have gotten expelled from the school.

  • Dodgeball Is Hell: Adam realizes this, and so does Coach Gills. That's why this was seen as the students' chance at getting revenge on Ding Bang for everything they did.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Bull Sharkowski makes a major appearance, despite this being well before his intended debut episode, "Shark Attack".
  • Endangered Species: As a Panda Bear, this was Ding Bang.
  • Master of Disguise: Larry Raccoon's disguise as Ding Bang.
  • Noodle Incident: It's never mentioned what it is, Larry did to get expelled. Though, judging by what he did as Ding Bang, it's likely a number of obnoxious things.
  • Playing the Victim Card: Ding Bang hid behind the excuse that he was an endangered species, to get out of any well earned pummelings and keester kickings for the way he treated everybody.
  • Rascally Raccoon: Larry Raccoon is another perfect example.

  • Ridiculous Procrastinator: Jake had literally millions of papers to file and only a day to do it. Thoughout 99% of this day, he slacked off, made ridiculous noises, pounded on the desk, made phone calls to people he didn't know, fell asleep, and even made thousands of photocopies of his butt, only expanding his work load. In that final 1% of the day, he managed to get absolutely all of the filing done.
  • The Voiceless: Ding Bang Panda.
