Thanksgiving Mess-Up

Season 1, Episode 19

(Opening shot; fade in to the kitchen. Kai-Lan gets two eggs from the refridgerator and hands them to Yeye. He takes the eggs.)

  • [Yeye] “Xie Xie, Kai-Lan.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “No problem, Yeye. Glad to help. I just want this year’s Thanksgiving party to be special.”

  • [Yeye] “Me too.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “I can’t wait to have my friends here!”

(She runs our of the kitchen. Cut to the interior of Rintoo’s house. Rintoo is showing Hoho, Spike, Thorn, and Manny his brand new red and white race car.)

  • [Thorn] “...You really got that thing on your third birthday?”

  • [Rintoo] “I sure did. My brother got the same car on his birthday last year, except it’s all green.”

  • [Hoho] “Wow, Rintoo. Do you think you can give me one of those as a birthday gift?”

  • [Rintoo] “Of course I will.”

  • [Spike] “But what about the other toy cars you have? What happened to those?”

  • [Rintoo] “I gave some of them to my brother.”

(Just then, he heard a knock on the door. He goes to answer it, and Kai-Lan walks in.)

  • [Rintoo] “Hey, Kai-Lan. Nice of you to drop by.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Guys, meet me at the park. I have very great things to tell you.”

  • [Spike] “We’ll be there!”

(They left the house. Cut to the park. The others are gathered in the sandbox.)

  • [Kai-Lan] “Great! Everyone’s here. Now I don’t have to wait any longer to tell you some great things about today!”

  • [Cappy] “Uhh, I don’t know. What is special about today?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Hmm. Well, today is a very special day’s Thanksgiving Day!”

  • [Felix] “Wow! That is special!”

  • [Hoho] “Ooooh.” (confused) “Hmm...Kai-Lan, what is Thanksgiving Day?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Thanksgiving Day is a holiday where you get together with your family and friends for a big dinner.”

  • [Ulysses] (chuckles) “Sounds very divine.”

(Just then, Yeye comes by.)

  • [Yeye] “What’s shakin’, bacons?”

(Everyone gives him a funny look.)

  • [Kai-Lan] “Yeye. I thought you were in the kitchen cooking the foods.”

  • [Yeye] “Kitchens. Cooking. Those are so few years ago, you know what I’m sayin’?”

  • [Tolee] “Uhhh, what?”

  • [Yeye] “Hey, little red lizard. Are ya busy?”

  • [Kunekune] “ Why’d you ask?”

  • [Yeye] “What are ya standin’ around for? Get to work, man!”

(He walks off, leaving everyone staring in confusion.)

  • [Manny] “What...was...that?”

  • [Tolee] “I have never heard Yeye talk like that.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Me neither.”

  • [Felix] “Well, let’s not worry about it too much. So, is the party tonight?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Yes it is. I want all of our friends to come.”

  • [Rintoo] “And let’s not remind me of what happened last year. Last Thanksgiving, I ate a whole batch of cookies before the big dinner, and I ended know…” (shudders)

  • [Hoho] (disgusted) “Ooooh...yeah. I remember. That was gross.”

  • [Tolee] “I know. I remembered that too.”

  • [Felix] “Now, what should we do while we wait for the big feast tonight?”

(Just then, a red and white striped bird flies by.)

  • [Bird] “Hey, what’s going on, guys?”

  • [Jack] “Hey, a talking bird. You don’t see that everyday!”

  • [Kai-Lan] “How do you know who we are?”

  • [Bird] “Listen closely. I can clearly recognize who you guys are, because I’m not just a bird. I am…”

(The bird transforms into a familiar superhero.)

  • [All] “WOAH!”

  • [Hoho] “The Monkey King!”

  • [Monkey King] “So, how’s everyone doing on this fine Thanksgiving afternoon?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “We’re all trying to figure out what we can do while we wait for the big dinner.”

  • [Monkey King] “Well, I think I know hundreds of things to pass the time.”

(Dissolve to the backyard. A group of hula-ducks helped to put up streamers.)

  • [Kai-Lan] “Well, I guess we can help with the decorations.”

  • [Monkey King] “Just give me some time. We might do something very fun before the big feast.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Well, you don’t want to get me started on last year. That was a total disaster.”

  • [Tolee] “Oh yeah. I remembered that.”

  • [Monkey King] “What happened last year?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Last year, we planned on having the feast outside. But none of us knew about a huge downpour that was coming. And before we knew it, the entire party was soaked and ruined.” (facepalm) “Ugh. I’ve got myself started on last year’s feast.”

  • [Thorn] “Oh man. That must’ve been messy.”

(Just then, Lulu floats by with a basket of fruit.)

  • [Lulu] “Ni hao, everyone.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Lulu! I see you’ve got the basket of fruit.”

  • [Lulu] “I did. I’ll put them on the table.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Let me help you.”

(Both girls left the scene.)

  • [Monkey King] “So I see Kai-Lan wants to make this year’s Thanksgiving feast better than last year.”

  • [Rintoo] “True. Like she said, last year’s party was just horrible.”

(Suddenly, fruit rains down on him. Rintoo looks up to see Lulu with the basket now empty.)

  • [Hoho] “Lulu?!”

  • [Ulysses] “Weren’t you helping Kai-Lan just now?”

  • [Lulu] “Fruits and vegetables are gross. I want candy.”

(She flies off.)

  • [Tolee] “That’s definitely not the Lulu we know.”

  • [Felix] “She might be a bit stressed today. Nothing to worry about.”

(Kai-Lan and Lulu come into the scene.)

  • [Kai-Lan] “What’s going on guys? I thought I heard shouting.”

  • [Thorn] “Kai-Lan, uhhh...did you see Lulu leave?”

  • [Lulu] “What do you mean? I was with her the entire time.”

  • [Rintoo] “But you just dumped fruit all over me, and you wanted candy.”

  • [Lulu] “...I don’t get it.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Well, why don’t we all just calm down. The party will start soon.”

  • [Spike] “It better start soon, because I’m starving.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Hmm...I don’t know why, but I feel like something is up.”

  • [Monkey King] “Like, what do you mean?”

  • [Kai-Lan] “First, Yeye was acting strange. Then, you guys said Lulu is acting strange. Do you think someone is behind this?”

  • [Cappy] “Are you saying…?”

  • [Felix] “It sounds like a bad guy is responsible.”

  • [Rintoo] “Oh, come on! We can’t let that stop us from having a good time.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “I think Rintoo is right. We can let these little worries get in front of us. Now...the big Thanksgiving feast is tomorrow night. I said before that I wanted this year’s feast to be better than last year’s. And you guys can help.”

(Puzzled muttering from the others. The silence is shattered when Kunekune shoots up in the air.)

  • [Kunekune] “I’VE GOT IT!!!”

(That gets the attention of every hula-duck in the scene, and his big grin and flushed face evaporates in an instant. He clears his throat demurely.)

  • [Kunekune] “Uh...I have a solution.”

(He goes to a bag.)

  • [Kunekune] “I feel like...these may do the trick.”

(“These”, held up, are one pilgrim hat and a white nun hat. The others give him bewildered stares. The dragon puts on the pilgrim hat and puts on the outfit.)

  • [Kunekune] “Eh...I-I mean...A way for everyone to show their Thanksgiving spirit! You know…” (jumping in place) “ ‘Yay, Thanksgiving Joy!’ “

  • [Kai-Lan] “Oh! I never thought of doing that!”

  • [Monkey King] “Yeah. That might be great!”

  • [Hoho] “Wow! We’re gonna show everyone Thanksgiving joy!”

  • [Kai-Lan] “That’s the best idea ever.”

(She hugs Kunekune gleefully from behind. Dissolve to the packed yard. The sky has became slightly darker. Cut to Rintoo, Manny, Spike, and Thorn at one table; Jack, Kunekune, Ulysses and Felix at another table; Cappy, Hoho, Tolee, and Lulu at the backyard door. Each boy has a pilgrim uniform on, and Lulu dresses up as nun.)

(Hoho picks up two eating utensils and starts to bang them against each other in a four-beat rhythm; bang...silence...bang-bang...silence. Cappy, Tolee, and Lulu do the same. Cut to Ulysses and Felix, both stomping and clapping the same rhythm. The others followed along. The Monkey King goes to a nearby radio and hooks up an MP3 player. He switched it on.)

~ (Song) ~

(One by one, the twelve characters get to their feet and high-step around the yard.)

[All twelve]

Hey, hey, everybody, we’ve got something to say

We may seem as different as the night is from day

(The others gathered with Lulu to form a line.)

But try to look deep and you will see

(They turn to each other in pairs.)

That I’m just as happy and you’re happy too, yeah!

(Spike, Thorn, and Jack run past the tables, hand in hand, then Tolee and Felix.)

Hey, hey, everybody, we’re here to shout

That the joy of Thanksgiving is what it’s all about

(They stop between tables and lean out to both sides.)

Yeah, we thought we were different as the night is from the day

Until Kai-Lan helped see another way

(Now lined up, they dance and twirl in unison.)

So get up, get down if you’re gonna go around

We can work together, see the joy of Thanksgiving day

So get up, get down ‘cause it’s gonna make a sound

If we work together, see the joy of Thanksgiving day!

(The view is swiftly pushed away by Hoho.)


Hey, hey, hands up now, we’re sending a message to the crowd

(He dances a bit with a hula-duck.)

Hands wave up, then come down, we party together all around

Kai-Lan helped us all to see

What we can be

(All high-step around the tables and go into a line.)

[All twelve]

So get up, get down if you’re gonna fly around

We can work together, see the joy of Thanksgiving day

So get up, get down ‘cause we’re gonna make a sound

(They head for the back doors, and Jack and Ulysses pull them open.)

We can work together, see the joy of Thanksgiving night

(Kai-Lan comes out, dressed as a nun.)


I’m gonna make this good, no matter what I do

And if we’re different, yeah, just go and be true to you

(She passed Rintoo, who strikes a chord on a guitar.)

If you follow me, we’ll put our differences aside

(She hops onto a table.)

We’ll stick together and see the joy tonight!

(Thirteen-part unison dance and twirl.)

[All thirteen]

Jump up, make a sound, stomp your feet, turn around

Start now, make a change, gonna come around

Jump up, make a sound (Yeah!), stomp your feet, turn around

Thanksgiving joy, get the feels tonight

(All the party guests start celebrating.)

Jump up, make a sound (Yeah!), stomp your feet, turn around

Start now, make a change, gonna come around

Jump high, make a sound (Yeah!), stomp your feet, turn around

Thanksgiving joy, get the feels tonight

Jump up, make a sound (Yeah!), stomp your feet, turn around

Start now, make a change, gonna come around

(While all of this going on, Medley watches from a distance in a bush. She turns her head to see Gene dancing stupidly.)

  • [Medley] “Stop dancing!” (He stops.) “You were just horrible back there! Just awful performance! Your imitations was just...oooooh!”

  • [Gene] “I was only doing what you said, Medley.”

  • [Medley] “Well, you weren’t doing a good job. I’ll have to get someone to do your job.”

  • [Gene] “You’re replacing me?!”

  • [Medley] “No. I just hired a monster to do the cloning. Come on.”

(Both run off.)

~ (Song ends) ~

(Dissolve to a while later, the sky getting a bit darker. Several party guests are wearing pilgrim/nun outfits.)

  • [Kunekune] “Does’t everyone look great?”

  • [Tolee] “I have to admit, that was a great idea.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “I couldn’t agree more.”

(They suddenly heard someone shouting. It was Lulu.)

  • [Cappy] “Lulu! Why were you shouting?”

  • [Lulu] “Look!”

(She points to all the food that were once tasty and mouth-watering. Now they have been well and truly wrecked.)

  • [Lulu] “Isn’t this just awful? And after Yeye worked so hard to make the food so perfect!”

  • [Manny] “No!”

  • [Lulu] “Why would the Monkey King do something like this?”

  • [Hoho] “What?! Why would you think the Monkey King is responsible for ruining the food?” (Lulu holds out a file folder.)

  • [Lulu] “Because I have proof!”

(Hoho takes the file and he is now staring at three photographs. He gasps and wears a look of sadness on his face.)

  • [Hoho] “How…? (voice breaking) “How could this be…?”

(Fade in to a darkened office in a police station. The superhero sits in front of it, while the police chief pony stands at the window, folder and photos in hand.)

  • [Monkey King] “What? But...I don’t understand!”

(The folder is tossed down in front of him, falling open so that the photos inside are exposed to him. He picks them up to look at them.)

  • [Police Chief Pony] “This is clearly you in the photographs, is it not?”

  • [Monkey King] (looks up at him) “Yes, but…”

  • [Police Chief Pony] “I think it should be fairly obvious that the public cannot let someone who would do something like this be involved in anything.”

(Just then, a knock comes at the door. The police lets Felix in.)

  • [Felix] “Sir. I found these in an empty box near the city dump.” (He hands him more photos.) “I thought you should see them.”

(These photos have a hole cut out in the shape of the Monkey King.)

  • [Felix] “Someone obviously combined these photos to make it look like the Monkey King was the one who trashed the party.”

  • [Police Chief Pony] “I see you’ve bought these to my attention.”

(They heard crashing outside. An angry clone of the Monkey King is throwing trash in someone’s car.)

  • [Police Chief Pony] “Oh. Looks like I bought the wrong doppelganger into custody.”

  • [Monkey King] “I’m the real Monkey King. That one is obviously a fake.”

(Cut to the party at Kai-Lan’s yard. The sky has became dark and everyone sat at a table.)

  • [Hoho] “...So you went to prove his innocence?”

  • [Felix] “I did. I, along with all of you, wasn’t aware of what was going on earlier today...until what happened to the food.”

  • [Monkey King] “I have been falsely accused of trashing the party, until when Felix came in. Then we shortly discovered...a villain is trying to confuse all of us.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “I see. I was starting to get a bit suspicious with happened with Yeye and Lulu earlier. Their behavior was...weird. Could there really be a villain that was responsible for this?”

  • [Spike] “Ugh! I need a sandwich or a piece of turkey in my stomach right now.”

  • [Monkey King] “It’s too bad all that food Yeye has worked so hard to make had been messed up.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “I know. But it’s not so bad. Yeye, Mr Fluffy, and Mr Dragon are making the noddles, dumplings, mooncakes, and desserts.”

  • [Cappy] “I’ve never had a moon cake before. Are they good?”

  • [Jack] “They’re the best! It’s like eating a birthday cake!”

  • [Felix] “Uh, a birthday cake.”

  • [Rintoo] (getting up)  “Welp...I gotta go check out how far they are on the cooking.”

(Rintoo walks out of the scene. Then, “Rintoo” comes back and sits down.)

  • [Rintoo] “Greetings, my friends.”

  • [Kai-Lan] (to the others, softly) “Watch out, guys. That one is a fake.”

(The others but “Rintoo” nod, following her lead. They suspiciously watched every move he made; takes a pair of chopsticks, picks out a dumpling, and eats it. The other Rintoo comes back and everyone gasps in shock.)

  • [Jack] “Ack! Two of them?!”

  • [Rintoo] “Guys, what’s going on?! There’s two of me!”

  • [Hoho] “Heh. I have to admit, that is kind of cool.” (shakes his head) “But, of you is the real Rintoo. So one of you must be an imposter!”

  • [Rintoo] “Look, guys. I’m the real Rintoo.”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Nah. That kid’s wrong. I’m the real Rintoo.”

  • [Tolee] “What can we do? How can we tell which is the real Rintoo?”

  • [Felix] “Well, there is a solution. Let’s do a test. A test that can distinguish the real Rintoo from the fake Rintoo.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “Oh, I like that idea.”

  • [Spike] “And please, let’s just get this over with so we can eat.”

(Cut to the two Rintoos. They both stare hard at each other. Dissolve to them sitting on chairs next to each other. The rest come over to them with a “wheel of fortune” behind them.)

  • [Kai-Lan] “Okay. The object of this test is to, obviously, answer three questions right.”

  • [Felix] “Each section on the wheel has the name of the body part. So if one of you give an incorrect answer, you have to spin the wheel. Whatever the arrow stops at, you get that part of your body covered in mud.”

  • [Manny] “Are you ready?”

  • [Both Rintoos] “Yeah! Bring it!”

  • [Thorn] “Got it. First question. Name two foods that I don’t like.”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Hmm...peanut butter and carrots.”

  • [Rintoo] “I remembered this when I looked on the Night Parties at Kunekune’s wiki. You don’t like...sushi and beetroots.”

  • [Thorn] “That is correct. I don’t like sushi or beetroots.”

  • [Hoho] “So the Rintoo that answered that question wrong gets a spin.”

(“Rintoo” spins the wheel, and the arrow lands on ‘leg’.)

  • [“Rintoo”] “Argh! No!”

  • [Cappy] “We’ll give you an option. Do you want the right or left leg covered in mud?”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Uh...left?”

  • [Thorn] “So you dip that leg into that bucket of mud.”

(“Rintoo” does so and goes back to the chair.)

  • [Cappy] “This next question is about us robots. Which of the two of us had actually ate an entire pie of pizza? Not in one sitting...but all eight slices eaten in one day.”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Hmmm...Bah! I don’t know this…”

  • [Rintoo] “Well, too bad for you. So I know for a fact it was Kunekune…”

  • [Kunekune] “That’s right.”

  • [Felix] “You’re almost there. You’ve got a 50-50 shot.”

  • [Rintoo] (sigh) “Jack.”

  • [Jack] “Oooh. He’s good.”

  • [Kai-Lan] “That’s really astonishing. I don’t know anyone who could eat that much.”

  • [Tolee] “Even if we asked the questions, we still can’t figure out who’s the real Rintoo.”

  • [Hoho] “Here. I’ve got a question. Now only the real Rintoo can answer this. What sport does your brother play?”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Rintoo has a brother?”

  • [Rintoo] “My brother is on the hockey team!” (points accusingly at his clone) “This one’s clearly an imposter!”

  • [Ulysses] “If you’re Rintoo, then who’s that?”

  • [“Rintoo”] “Okay. You got me. Just wait ‘til you get a load of me.”

(An aura of blue surrounds him and reveals the true identity of a new animatronic. This is a brown-furred raccoon dog with cobalt blue eyes.)

  • [Rintoo] “A...a raccoon?”

  • [‘Raccoon’] “No, you simpleton! I’m a tanooki. Tanner the Tanooki! Remember that!”

  • [Manny] “So you’re the trickster that’s behind all this!”

  • [Tanner] “I’ll have you know I’m not the only one responsible.”

(Just then, Gene and Medley come to him.)

  • [Medley] “That’s totally right, Tanner.”

  • [Rintoo] “You guys again? It’s been a while since we saw you!”

  • [Gene] “Of course it has.”

  • [Felix] “What are you guys up to?”

  • [Medley] “Oh, we just simply tried to ruin your Thanksgiving feast...with the help of Tanner.”

  • [Cappy] “You guys are evil!”

  • [Gene] “Well, duh! We’ve always been evil.”

  • [Rintoo] “I don’t care about the whole ‘evil’ stuff. You three nincompoops have three minutes to move your butts out of here or else you get the fists.”

  • [Tanner] “Heh. Like you think that can scare me. You weren’t aware, weren’t you?”

  • [Ulysses] “About what?”

  • [Tanner] “That I was the one disguised as one of your loved ones. I first changed and imitated your grandfather…your pink rhino friend...that monkey superhero...and your tiger friend.”

  • [Medley] “Our friend Tanner is a shapeshifter, which means he can turn into anything.”

  • [Thorn] “Well, I don’t want to hear your mouth running!”

(He takes a big breath and lets fire shoot out. Tanner gets in front of the two villains and turns into a statue that completely blocked the flames. Then he turns back from rock. Gene builds up an electrical ball on his hand, making it bigger. He tosses it down on the protagonists. Just before it hits them, the Monkey King jumps into the scene and blocks the destructive thing with his magic stick. He waves the stick and sends the ball of energy flying into space. Kai-Lan and the others cheered.)

  • [Hoho] “Yay, Monkey King!”

  • [Monkey King] “Now, time to take care of you.”

(He holds the magic stick toward the retreating evil trio. They suddenly found themselves unable to move.)

  • [Gene] “Ahh! What’s going on?! Medley, do your stare!”

  • [Medley] “I can’t! I can’t move any part of my body!”

  • [Tanner] “What do you mean? You’re a medusa, are you not?”

  • [Medley] “Yes...but…”

  • [Monkey King] “Stop! You guys are not gonna ruin this celebration!” (holds out a filled balloon)

  • [Gene] “What’s that?”

  • [Monkey King] “A magical water balloon. Once I throw it, you guys will fall into a deep sleep.”

  • [Tanner] “Aw, crud.”

  • [Medley] “Get that away from us, you fool!”

  • [Monkey King] “Sorry, but you’re time here is through!”

(He throws the balloon at them, and the water splashing out did its magic. The villains slumped to the ground and already fell asleep. More cheering from Kai-Lan and the others.)

  • [Rintoo] “That was awesome! I never saw you do that!”

  • [Monkey King] “Thanks. Well, everyone. That’s a nice wrap-up on those three guys. Who wants to have the feast at my castle? It’s new and improved!”

(Everyone cheers and follows the hero to his castle. But then stopped.)

  • [Kunekune] “Oh, but...what about Medley, Gene, and Tanner?”

  • [Monkey King] “Well...I guess we could bring them along. But sadly, they won’t be partying with us because I will tie them in ropes.”

(Cut to the exterior of the castle, then inside. Everyone is eating chatting, and having fun. Cut to the villains sitting in the corner, all tied in ropes. They look tired after their long nap.)

  • [Tanner] “Wha...what are we doing h-here?”

  • [Medley] “A-are we in the Monkey King’s c-castle?”

  • [Gene] “Wh-what do you th-think…?”

(He glares at them as if they’re playing stupid, then all three fell back asleep.)
