Amazon Kevin is the eleventh episode of the first season.

SynopsisEdit

Chaos spreads when Adam sends a letter to the star of television's Amazon Kevin's Wild Animal Takedown to go to an assembly at the school. Now Adam has to beat up Amazon Kevin for the students including Jake.

PlotEdit

Adam watches an Animal Takedown show, featuring a Steve Irwin parody named Amazon Kevin. At the end of the show, Amazon Kevin mentions how fans can write to him and ask for him to meet him in person. Adam is struck with sadness and mourns over how two years ago, he wrote to him and never got a response.

At Charles Darwin Middle School, Principal Pixiefrog gathers together a school-wide assembly and announces that their school will be getting a special guest visitor, named Amazon Kevin. Adam is shocked and excited, while the rest of the students, are shocked and terrified. The animals don't like how Kevin beats up their kind and don't take too kindly to him showing up. Principal Pixiefrog, apparently not knowing who he is, since he doesn't own a TV or having any awareness of popular culture, lets him into the school.

Amazon Kevin gets up on stage and the CDMS students watch in scorn, as he beats up a guy in a crocodile suit, named Wally. After wondering what a guy like him was doing at their school, he reads Adam Lyon's letter and announces his name. Adam's friends look at him in shame, but Jake stops them and suggests that this might be from another "Adam Lyon", until Kevin shows his picture on the projector screen, which gets all of Adam's friends and other schoolgoers to turn on him and attack him.

Amazon Kevin gets the lights up and sees Adam, hanging from his underwear. Then and there, he realizes that everyone at the school is an animal, who's ready to gang up on him and take him down. Amazon Kevin cowers in fear and hides in a closet.

(reads letter) Dear, Amazon Kevin, I am your biggest fan in the whole wide world. Please come to my school. Please, please, please, please, please, please, please! You rule so hard. So very hard. I hope to grow up to be just like you, your loyal pal and eternal friend, Adam Lyon.

TriviaEdit

  • Principal Pixiefrog says he doesn't own a TV. However, in "Leaf of Absence", he was watching TV at his home. He must have bought this after the events of this episode.
  • Amazon Kevin and his show are a parody on Australian nature expert, Steve Irwin, and his wildlife documentary show, The Crocodile Hunter.
    • After Steve Irwin's death, on September 4th, 2006, this episode was banned in Australia.
  • When the animals are chasing Kevin, the music "Night on Bald Mountain" plays.
  • Adam's house is seen for the fist time.
  • Lupe exclaims that everyone in the school has "Died and gone to the bad place", which is a kid-friendly reference to Hell.
    • Similarly, Amazon Kevin makes an outright reference to Heaven, saying "Amazon Kevin is going to Amazon Heaven", regarding the "death" of his career.
He's RIght Here ya Freak

Entirety of Ingrid (Bottom).

Top of Ingrid

Entirety of Ingrid (Top)

  • The entirety of Ingrid is seen in this episode, via panoramic image. After Jake says "He's right here, ya freak!" an upward whip pan happens and for a brief second, Ingrid's entire neck length is visible. This is quite possibly the only instance in the series where the fully-drawn version of Ingrid has been shown on screen all at once.
  • This episode has a scene where Adam gets an atomic wedgie, which leaves him hanging by his underwear from a hook on the ceiling. This scene would be be brought up again in the ending credits of the The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" episode, "Billy and Mandy Moon the Moon", as part of the Cartoon Network Invaded event. It would be mentioned that all of the characters from the five shows involved that were invaded by the aliens, have built up an immunity to wedgies, after suffering so many of them already. Pictures of all those characters were shown, including a shot of Adam getting his wedgie in this episode.
