Go To

Lupe is sick of the toucan stereotypes being perpetrated by toucan celebrity, Kiki Von Beaky, so she starts a toucan rights activist club at school.

  • Activist Fundamentalist Antics: Lupe becomes a toucan rights protester.
  • Callback: The "No Bunnies Allowed" rule from "The Big Field Trip" is not forgotten, when Adam shows growing concern for a "rabbit" hopping into the United Species Club.
    • Also, Jake has a conversation with Principal Pixiefrog's Car, in reference to the running gag of his car always getting destroyed.
  • Canis Latinicus: The students of the United Species club all had amusing labels on their desks, representing their species'.

  • Catchphrase: "Ow, my beak!"
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Jake makes a joke about Kiki Von Beaky, which triggers Lupe and gets her to drop like a bomb on him. Actually, it was Adam. See, Adam laughed at his joke, so he got the punishment of being painfully blown to pieces and put into a full body cast, complete with an eyepatch, and some missing teeth.
  • Fantastic Racism: Lupe gets offended the negative toucan stereotpyes, made by Kiki Von Beaky.
  • Getting the Boot: Jake got thrown out by the sergeant at arms, shortly after the United Species Club was established.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: When the students say "Here, Here!", Lupe is heard saying "Aqui, Aqui!"
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Jake had a bunny costume, which was just two socks on his head and some taped-on whiskers.
  • Political Correctness Gone Mad: The animal rights foundation gets out of hand, really quickly, with random animals just venting about their personal problems with trivial garbage, and putting Adam on the spot, trying to make him change it.
    Adam: So in conclusion, I understand your concern about fish crackers and why you may consider them offensive, but they're not like that at all. In fact, they're showing how much they love, the fish community. And also, I think they're also quite delicious. That being said, I conclude that we keep them around.
    Flounder Boy: Jerk!
