Recap / The Adventures Of Puss In Boots S 06 E 02 Save The Cat

Go To

Puss and friends continue rallying the villagers of San Lorenzo to liberate it from El Moco.


  • Butt-Monkey: The Skeletons are the only displaced citizens of San Lorenzo whose lives are clearly better off now, but Puss just sort of forces them into moving back anyway. Their dialogue is even subtitled to drive the point home further.
  • Chain of Deals: Continuing to build from where the previous episode left off:
    • The Orphans are working on the goblin farm until the vegetables they accidentally ate are replaced
    • Advertisement:
    • The Bears have vegetables and the Igualdemontijos and will give them up in exchange for honey
    • Tranche has recipe book for handmade honey and Temoroso and will give them up in exchange for a rare doll
    • Esme has the rare doll and will give it up in exchange for her teddy bear.
    • The skeletons have the teddy bear and so Puss just takes it.
  • I Ate WHAT?!: A group of San Lorenzans have been living in the woods, and mention that they had to use sticks instead of toilet paper. Puss, who had been using a stick as a fork, stops eating.
  • Late to the Realization: El Moco lights the fuse that will blow up San Lorenzo, but doesn't realize that, since he's still in San Lorenzo, he will be blown up with it until Puss points it out.
  • Mythology Gag: Tranche is seen pretending to read a romance novel. The male love interest illustrated on the cover looks remarkably like Shrek's human form from Shrek 2.

  • Judgment of Solomon: Esme is found leading the thieves of Thieves Market and she resolves two thieves fighting over a doll by declaring that it be cut in half. This turns out to be an acceptable solution and the thieves quickly agree on which half they would prefer to keep.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Although Puss was just hoping Miguela might have a book on a secret way of making honey so that he does not have to interact with bees, it turns out she does in fact have such a book.
  • Something We Forgot: After El Moco is defeated, Puss announces that everyone in town is back. And at that moment the Sphynx returns and calls out the others for not looking for her.
  • Throat-Slitting Gesture: A thief uses the gesture to indicate what happens to the Master of Thieves if they show weakness. Artephius misinterprets it as being given necklaces.
