  1. Posting the WEIRDEST GIF that I have EVER seen available in the GIF options!
  2. I'm listening to a 1970's compilation double album, specifically Isaac Hayes' version of "Never Can Say Goodbye".
  3. Happy Birthday, Nosferatu, Webizoid, and everyone else having a birthday! Happy Birthday Cake!
  4. "Ducktales" (2017), "The Amazing World Of Gumball" is a close second.
  5. I just know that I won't be able to comfortably fit my latest episode of "Total Cartoon Legends" (once it's finished), into one post; so I'll break it into two parts to make it more accessible to readers. / Sniz is looking at public domain footage of cars as they have gotten faster throughout the years, and he says: "Last time on Total Cartoon Legends, we were down to the Final Five! And while Spongebob was used to partnering up with Yakkity, and Marlene was used to partnering up with Buhdeuce; Dudley ended up being partnered with Spongebob, while Yakkity got stuck with Johnny Krill! But Yakkity, who SOMEHOW managed to survive being in an alliance with BULMA; somehow managed to SURVIVE being partnered with Johnny Krill as well! Not only that, but Yakkity actually WON immunity and a reward, in a challenge revolving around Benjamin Franklin! And that left Dudley Puppy, the only contestant without an alliance partner, eliminated from the game! Now, at long last, we are finally down to the Final Four! Spongebob Squarepants, Marlene Otter, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity Yak have all beaten 42 other contestants to get here! They are now guaranteed a minimum of a $40 million payout just for winding up in fourth place! However, only can win the grand prize of a $44.44 million cash reward! Things are about to get FAST, as the contestants will soon RACE for the gold, AND the glory; on a super-charged episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "And remember, objects in the mirror are CLOSER than they appear!" / Instead of the normal show open, it shows a fast-paced montage of Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity in all of their various victories against the other contestants this season, set to Steppenwolf's MEGA hit song, "Born To Be Wild!" / Steppenwolf sings: "Get your motor runnin', head out on the highway! Lookin' for adventure, and whatever comes our way! Yeah, darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space! I like smoke and lightning, Heavy Metal thunder! Racin' with the wind, and the feelin' that I'm under. Yeah, Darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once, and explode into space! Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild! We can climb so high, I never wanna die! Born to be wild! Born to be wild! (Instrumental Solo) Whoo! Whoo! Get your motor runnin', head out on the highway! Lookin' for adventure, and whatever comes our way! Yeah, Darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once, and explode into space! Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild! We can climb so high, I never wanna die! Born to be wild! Born to be wild!" (Instrumental Solo until the montage and song ends)! / "The Legend Of The Lucky Pocket Watch of Henry Ford!" / It is late at night, and Spongebob and Yakkity are arriving back from their reward trip in Philadelphia! Spongebob says: "That Philadelphia trip sure WAS educational! I definitely absorbed a LOT of interesting facts!" Yakkity says: "It's too bad Sniz wouldn't let the Fairy Godparents film anymore of our stay, there. That footage would've been really USEFUL to some people!" Spongebob says: "Yeah, but according to General Barracuda..." Spongebob MORPHS into a likeness of General Barracuda, and doing his BEST Mr. T impersonation, Spongebob says: "Listen, you FOO! There is simply NO audience for an hour long infomercial about the city of Philadelphia, and I PITY the FOO; who don't believe what I'm saying!" Yakkity laughs at that, and he says: "THAT'S General Barracuda, all right!" Spongebob morphs back to normal, and he says: "You SAID it! At least WE'RE the lucky ones! Bubble Bass' Mother actually has to LIVE with him!" Yakkity says: "Yeah; but SOMEHOW, they find a way to make it work!" Spongebob says: "I couldn't even BEGIN to imagine how THAT works out!" Yakkity says: "My Grandma once told me some couples can only function LIVING like that! Personally, I don't see the appeal to it! Living like that would get DOWNRIGHT exhausting from MY point of view! Not at all ATTRACTIVE, if you know what I mean!" Spongebob says: "Well, it's not for us to decide how General Barracuda and his wife want to live, anyways! It's THEIR collective decisions, and they're the ones who have to deal with it!" Yakkity says: "Speaking of decisions, I suppose YOU'LL have to decide who you're going to take to the Final Three with you if you WIN this challenge!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "Yeah, IF I win! That's what it's all going to boil down to, isn't it?" Yakkity says: "You almost sound as if you don't WANT to win!" Spongebob says: "It's not that I don't WANT to win! It would be very NICE to win! But winning, means I'd have to see one more contestant being voted off, even if I'm not the one actually VOTING that contestant off!" Yakkity sighs, and he says: "I know what you mean. That's probably the biggest DRAWBACK about being on this show; even if you're not personally responsible for it, you STILL have to see at least SOME of your friends being eliminated!" Spongebob says: "And we have just this upcoming challenge and one more after that. I personally have NO idea how Private, Dog, Stimpy, Sandy, Larry, and Bubble Bass were ever able to DO it!" Yakkity says: "Well, you might ask MARLENE if she's up for it! She's the only one out of us who's ever actually BEEN to the Final Three before, even IF she didn't win!" Spongebob says: "True! And I remember her performance of Total Cartoon Action well enough. Even IF the moves she made weren't considered popular, she definitely did what she HAD to do in order to make it to that point! But...I don't think the cut throat approach is cut out for me!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, I wasn't a big fan of Bulma's approach, EITHER! But, you definitely can't argue with a LONG list of contestants that SHE had a hand in eliminating in HER seasons! Let's face the facts; SOMEONE might have to make a hard decision before the Final Challenge gets here. Do you, think I'll honestly be able to get to the Final Three?" Spongebob says: "I couldn't say for certain one way or the other. But even if THIS is as far as you can get, you'll STILL leave $40 million richer!" Yakkity says: "That's true. But I don't see HOW either of us can compete with Buhdeuce who's turned into a metaphorical buzz saw, and Marlene who has the most collective experience out of all of us!" Spongebob says: "Well, I'm sure Buhdeuce had HIS doubts about being able to beat Tigress, and he STILL managed to do it!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, I guess you're right! We WON'T know if we CAN do it, unless we give it our BEST effort! And we have some of the best reasons for TRYING! You, to avenge your eliminated friends; and me, because I want to make my Grandma proud! Let's give everyone we're playing for, a performance they'll remember for a LONG time after this!" Spongebob says: "Agreed! It's time to play for ALL the marbles, and lay ALL our cards on the table!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "It sure is strange, that near the end of this season, I've managed to find someone who in many ways, is similar to the way I used to be at the start of this season. I was utterly scared, insecure, and wanting so MUCH for everyone to like me! Over the course of this season, I had to learn the hard way that not everyone WILL like me the way I want them to! And...I'm capable of making irrational, rash decisions the way Squidward has. Those are short-comings that I've had to accept, and things that I'll need to be aware of even AFTER this season is over! But I know this entire experience has made me a better sponge, because I now know how to express myself properly, and not bottle up my emotions like I did in the past! And I owe it all to the help of my friends! I'm playing as much for them, as I am for myself! And I know they'll be cheering for me, should I make it all the way to the Finals! I must do my best for THEIR sake, as well!" / Yakkity says: "My father disappeared when I was eight. No one knows what happened to him. My mom wasn't able to provide for me on her own, so she gave me to my Grandma, my Father's mother, to raise me while she could find a career that would earn her enough money to raise me again! Even though my mom hasn't found her niche yet, certainly NOT from a lack of trying; I still love my mother, and regardless of what happens between now and the end of this season, I'll return home and give my mother the life she's ALWAYS dreamed of; and me, my mother, and my grandma will have a happy life for hopefully many MORE years to come!" (End Confessional) It is early morning, and Marlene and Buhdeuce are having a meeting in the hotel conference room. Buhdeuce asks: "Marlene, how many eliminated contestants do YOU think, are surprised that I managed to make it THIS far in the game?!" Marlene THINKS about it, and she says: "Let's see...I'd say about, 24 of them!" Buhdeuce says: "That sounds about right!" Marlene says: "But regardless of your OWN personal victory, this is where a win for EITHER of us would be REALLY important to getting us closer to the Finals! After all, only ONE of us can win immunity now; so these next two challenges will determine whether or not YOU stay safe, based on how WELL you play the game!" Buhdeuce asks: "Do you think I should do my best?!" Marlene says: "It's hard to say. It certainly worked for Spongebob, Larry, Reggie, and Bubble Bass! But let's not forget, Dog basically got to share a win with Larry by sheer LUCK, and Patrick SOMEHOW managed to get to the Final Three in season three, without really MEANING to! In any case, I don't think I can honestly say what approach would be best for you. In the end, you have to figure out what's right for YOU, by yourself! It may sound a bit cliche, but there's a reason that information has stuck around for as LONG as it has; it often turns out to BE the truth!" (Confessional) Marlene sighs in relief, and she says: "I didn't jinx it! Against all odds, I made it to the Final Three again! Now, comes the hardest part of this season; seeing whether or not I can eliminate two more contestants! Spongebob is OUT of the question, he's WAY too popular! So, it boils down to how well Yakkity and Buhdeuce perform; in addition to my OWN performance! If Buhdeuce is going to the Final Three, he needs to EARN it by himself! Nobody else can do it for him!" / Buhdeuce yells: "YES!! I'm in the Final Four! I'm in the Final Four! I feel SO excited, I feel like I can FLY!!" And to Buhdeuce's SURPRISE, he actually DOES start flying! Buhdeuce says: "WAIT! I can FLY now? I can FLY NOW!!!! I never thought this day would come, but I've finally EARNED my Breadwinner wings! Sway-Sway says that all the TRUE Breadwinner legends get them someday! Now, I'm up there with some of the legendary greats! No matter what happens now, I can go home feeling like I've won my OWN personal victory! Nothing will change in my friendship with Sway-Sway, but now I know; that even if I have to solve a problem without him, I really CAN do it if I apply EVERYTHING I've learned, in order to do it in REAL life!" (End Confessional) It is breakfast time, and the remaining contestants are eating their breakfast. Yakkity says: "The cafeteria SURE seems a lot more empty with just the four of us, now." Buhdeuce says: "It was a lot MORE lively when everyone else was here WITH us!" Spongebob says: "Speaking of 'Lively'; Marlene, how WERE you able to get to the Final Three WITHOUT feeling guilty about eliminating SOME of the contestants in season two?" Marlene says: "In the first place, at least NINE of those contestants were eliminated in ways that I either had no control over; or they would've been eliminated even WITHOUT my help! Secondly, I had a different mind set back than! I didn't think in a way that would insure my own PERSONAL popularity with all of the contestants! I just wanted to get to the Final Three! If I had known back THAN that I could do it WITHOUT playing the 'Flirt Card' at all, I would've done so! Of course, you've never HAD that problem! And if the reason you WANTED to ask me how I DON'T feel guilty about eliminating someone? The sad fact of the matter is, Spongebob; if you DO end up having to eliminate someone LIKE Bulma Briefs, than you probably WILL feel guilty about it! And that's perfectly NATURAL! I don't think that it doesn't MEAN that you DON'T care! The fact that you DO feel guilty about Bulma's elimination, is actually the fact that you DID care about her elimination! We all do things in our life that we might feel guilty about! I know how THAT feels due to TRYING to have a FAKE romance with Captain Retro...I'm REALLY not proud of that! But for what it's worth, it was more MY mistake than his! He was a NICE dog, and he didn't deserve to be led on like that! The point is, I've learned not to pull stunts like that anymore! I guess you could say, that a mistake doesn't have to BE for nothing; as long as you learn from your mistake and improve from it, than THAT'S what really counts!" Spongebob says: "Thanks for sharing that with me, Marlene. I feel like I can tackle the Final Four, now!" Marlene says: "Anything to help a fellow marine mammal!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "So, I'm not the only one who can feel guilty about something. I guess EVERYONE can feel guilty about something...especially if they're truly HONEST with themselves! But having that guilt isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign that you care, and you WANT to do better! And if you DO take a mistake that you've made to heart, than that's a sign that you ARE doing better, because it's only from learning from the mistakes that you make, that you can grow and mature into becoming who you are MEANT to be!" / Marlene sighs, and she says: "Yeah, I probably just HANDED a Final Two slot to Spongebob right then and there. But for me? It's better to know NOW, who I'll compete against in the Finals! And if it's someone who IS on good terms with me, that's just an added bonus from MY perspective!" (End Confessional) Johnny Krill walks in, but he doesn't have the gong! Buhdeuce asks: "What? No gong today?" Johnny says: "Well, you made it to the Final Four! You know everyone who GOT eliminated, and you're the last four left! Out of all the contestants on THIS half-season, you're the best of the bunch! And...we won't have a Moat Challenge, today!" Yakkity asks: "Why? Did Cosmo FORGET to put Chlorine in the Moat?" Johnny says: "No. General Barracuda says that the time has come to recap all the contestants the four of you have surpassed, in order to get to this point!" Buhdeuce asks: "So...are we NOT having a challenge?" Johnny says: "Don't worry, there will BE a challenge, AFTER the retrospective! So come with me, and let's get this over with!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "I never thought I'd see the day when Johnny WOULDN'T be excited about announcing the upcoming challenge!" / Johnny asks: "How could I possibly be excited? I have no personal STAKE in it!" / Buhdeuce says: "I guess Sniz wants to get the Retrospective out of the way FIRST, BEFORE we head into the challenge! Suits me just fine; it gives me MORE time to mentally prepare myself!" (End Confessional) Johnny Krill leads the Final Four contestants, and see Sniz on a car-sized treadmill, in the driver's seat of a red sports car that can comfortably seat four OTHER passengers! Sniz says: "Welcome, contestants! Or should I say more appropriately; Quarter-Finalists? You have gotten past 42 other contestants to get to this coveted place; so what better time to do a retrospective?!" Johnny says: "You never did a retrospective during Total Cartoon Island Strikes Back!" Sniz says: "That's because there were only fourteen of you! And besides, the studio VETOED that idea! The point is, we're going to do a DRIVING retrospective now, for these four Legends who have proven to be the BEST of the legends!" Buhdeuce asks: "Can't I FLY?! Because I can do that, now!" Marlene says: "At this point, I'm not sure if ANYTHING can surprise me!" General Barracuda says: "Absolutely NOT, Buhdeuce! If it were up to ME, you'd get NOTHING; and LIKE it!" Yakkity says: "I heard of 'Telling it like it is;' but that seems a bit MUCH for MY liking!" Spongebob says: "You said it!" Sniz says: "In any case, we have a schedule to keep to! And the sooner we get this done, the sooner we can do the challenge!" Marlene says: "Very well. I CALL SHOTGUN!!" And she dashes to the front-side passenger seat before anyone else can grab it! (Confessional) General Barracuda chuckles, and he says: "I got to hand it to Marlene! She sees her opportunities, and takes them when she can! She definitely has MY vote for winning!" / Johnny says: "Well, I least I'll get a little bit of retrospective recognition this time around! It's better than nothing!" / Buhdeuce says: "It's sad that Marlene has grown numb to the surprises this show has to offer. At least I haven't!" / Marlene says: "If I'm going to do this retrospective, I WANT to be as comfortable as possible!" / Yakkity says: "General Barracuda is SO lucky he works on THIS show! I'm not sure if he COULD get work anywhere else!" / Spongebob says: "This driving thing is probably a PREVIEW of the challenge we're going to have! Leave it to Sniz to make a SUBTLE surprise, for a change!" (End Confessional) Spongebob, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity all take seats, with Buhdeuce getting STUCK in the middle of the back! Buhdeuce asks: "Hey! How come I have to get STUCK in the middle?!" Yakkity says: "Well, you do fit the BEST in the middle seat!" And Johnny Krill plays a rim-shot! Marlene asks: "THAT was worthy of a rim-shot?!" Spongebob says: "Take what you can get! It's going to be a LONG ride to nowhere, LITERALLY!" Sniz says: "Even so, I want EVERYONE to buckle up!" And everyone does so! Sniz says: "Johnny Krill, turn on the treadmill!" And Johnny turns on the treadmill, and Sniz begins driving the four contestants along a patch of scenery, that looks SUSPICIOUSLY a LOT like a "Repeat Pan" from an old Hanna-Barbera cartoon! Buhdeuce asks: "WAIT! Hanna-Barbera is allowing us to use one of THEIR old backgrounds?!" Sniz asks: "Are you KIDDING?! Have you SEEN 'Teen Titans Go!'? Hanna-Barbera's parent company Warner Bros. is willing to do ANYTHING for money!" And while the Repeat Pan plays, the contestants see images of the former contestants that have been eliminated! Spongebob says: "There's Kowalski and Private!" Buhdeuce says: "How in the world were THOSE two eliminated first?!" Marlene says: "Two reasons, for not thinking out their whole plan through; thanks a LOT Skipper, and the fact that the Silver Snakes and the Blue Barracudas wanted to use THEM as scapegoats for failing the first challenge!" Yakkity says: "I can vouch for THOSE view-points! Your assessment is TOTALLY accurate!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "I'm sure if Tigress had HER way, Spongebob and I would've been eliminated FIRST! Good thing the Green Monkeys got paired up with the Red Jaguars, and I was on the same team as HER!" / Marlene says: "Personally, I have NEVER seen the appeal of acting like a 'Leeroy Jenkins'! So why do SIX of the seven major guys I know of in MY life feel the need to act OUT like that?! Thank goodness for MAURICE to provide me with a SMALL, remaining bit of sanity for MY sake, as well as his!" / Yakkity says: "Trust me, there was no SHORTAGE of contestants back THAN, myself included; who felt it was BEST for those two to go FIRST! I mean, at least I managed to make it all the way here, so I don't see any OTHER way I might have made it here otherwise!" (End Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "There's Kaput and Johnny Krill!" Johnny shouts: "I'm also standing RIGHT here!" Sniz says: "You're still TECHNICALLY eliminated!" Marlene asks: "Any idea why THOSE two got eliminated?" Yakkity says: "It was simply a result of SO many plans clashing together at once! Tigress wanted Aang gone, Aang wanted Tigress gone, and Bulma suspected that BOTH of them had an immunity pendant, so she told Sandy to vote 'Someone inconsequential'! If I had KNOWN Johnny Krill meant THAT much to Spongebob at the time, I would've considered voting for someone OTHER than Tigress and Aang!" Spongebob says: "That's very considerate of you to say!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Don't get me wrong; Kaput and Johnny Krill probably WOULD have been eliminated ANYWAYS even WITHOUT the 'Gambit Pile-Up'. The fact that it happened WHEN it did, just made it happen a lot sooner!" / Yakkity says: "Come to think of it, the fact that I wasn't made AWARE of Bulma's plan, because I wasn't IN an alliance with her at the time; was probably a major factor as to why I got INTO an alliance with her in the first place!" / Spongebob says: "It's always refreshing for me, when someone ELSE admits that they've made a mistake! It makes me glad to know that I'm NOT the only one who makes them!" (End Confessional) Marlene says: "There's Haggis and Monster Krumholtz!" Spongebob says: "Poor Haggis, he was SO robbed by Aang!" Buhdeuce says: "Even so, he really didn't HAVE the stamina to compete with us! And it's not like YOU could think of any way for Monster to be relevant to YOUR team! If anything, their eliminations were basically MERCY eliminations for everyone else!" Yakkity says: "And all things considered, I was probably ONE of the contestants to benefit FROM them!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "All things considered, if someone IS going to get eliminated; they should be eliminated on their OWN terms, not terms that someone ELSE randomly decides! Accident or not, I'm GLAD I was able to teach Aang a LESSON in respecting his elders; among OTHER things!" / Buhdeuce says: "I feel the only thing the rest of us missed out on, from Haggis being eliminated so soon; is that we didn't have more time to learn the tricks of a TRUE master actor!" / Yakkity says: "It's a pity Monster didn't stick around longer, we could've made for a very GOOD combination if we ever got to work together!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Aang and Snaptrap!" And EVERYONE else, simultaneously says: "BOO!!!!" Johnny says: "It serves Aang RIGHT, only getting eliminated two episodes after I did!" Marlene says: "Of course, I don't think ANY of us would've EVER suspected that it would be SPONGEBOB who would deliver the Coup de Grace to Aang, possessed by Master Coelaceanth!" Buhdeuce says: "Yeah, how come you've never used your Super Saiyan 2 abilities AFTER that?" Spongebob says: "Come on! If I did that, none of you would have a CHANCE against me! I only want to use those powers in an emergency like THAT one! And it's sad that Snaptrap didn't REALIZE that he wasn't acting evil on his own free will; at least we made sure Anti-Cosmo got punished when we realized THAT truth!" Yakkity says: "I sure am glad for the fact that Spongebob is on OUR side!" (Confessional) Johnny says: "Aang is LUCKY that Sniz decided to eliminate him by ejection, because I'm sure that every OTHER contestant; even if they didn't appear on THIS half-season, would've voted him off if given the chance! And I can safely say that, because I would've been just ONE of them!" / Marlene shakes her head, and she says: "It's sad how SOME people can let fame go to their heads! I just consider myself lucky that I'm not ONE of them!" / Spongebob says: "Will I ever use my Super Saiyan 2 abilities again? It's hard to say. All I know is that if I need to, I definitely will! Once you know your own true potential being THAT good, you NEVER forget how THAT feels EVER again!" / Buhdeuce says: "I'll admit, I was caught off guard by Aang when he attacked as a contestant! But if we were to fight NOW, I could DEFINITELY take him on!" / Yakkity says: "It's a shame that Snaptrap was only recently FREED from being evil. He could've been such a nice rodent contestant to the rest of us!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Darwin and Heffer Wolfe!" Johnny asks: "Does anyone remember anything noteworthy about THEM?!" Spongebob winces, and he says: "Not REALLY, and I'M being generous!" Marlene says: "Well, it's HARD when you're in a contest with over 3 dozen OTHER contestants! I'm just lucky I was able to push my WAY out of that crowded field!" Yakkity says: "And I'm lucky that Bulma was willing to help ME through it!" Buhdeuce says: "And I'm lucky that Sway-Sway has been my inspiration since THEN, and continues to be so NOW!" (Confessional) Sniz says: "Well, there were bound to be SOME contestants that WEREN'T going to give us something to talk about; unlike a Bonnie Raitt song!" / Spongebob says: "Probably the biggest reason why I don't remember much about them, is because I was STILL dealing with some personal issues of MINE at the time! It had nothing to do with them, it was just something I had to go through!" / Marlene says: "I'm definitely LUCKY, in the fact that unlike Darwin and Heffer, I HAD a good personality to fall back on; while I waited for the field to clear up a little!" / Yakkity says: "Personally speaking, I probably went through MORE elimination ceremonies than anyone else! If I didn't have Bulma as a friend, I'm not sure if I would've lasted as LONG as I have! I definitely owe her at least SOME money, if nothing else if I DO win the big prize!" / Buhdeuce says: "Even though I really don't see HOW Sway-Sway could've gotten through all the challenges that I have had to go through on my own, I still wish he could've at least had the CHANCE to go through them! At least I was able to go through them for the BOTH of us!" (End Confessional) Yakkity says: "There's Judy and Sway-Sway!...That's, STILL probably a bit of a sore spot for Buhdeuce; isn't it?!" Buhdeuce breaks down and cries: "Sway-Sway, you were robbed TOO soon! BAH!!!!" Marlene says: "Look on the BRIGHT side! Not...EVERYONE would've voted HIM off! Spongebob wouldn't!" And Spongebob says: "Of COURSE not!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, and Judy was ALSO taken out than, so she KNOWS what it feels like to be the first batch of contestants eliminated!" Spongebob says: "He's right! This is no time to break down! Sway-Sway WANTS you to keep going!" Buhdeuce dries his eyes, and he says: "You're right! I need to DO this, for Sway-Sway!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Would I have voted off Sway-Sway if I had the opportunity to do so, knowing what I know now? Hard to say. All I know is, I have no way of knowing how the REST of the half-season would've gone down, had Sway-Sway not been eliminated than! For instance, I might not be here right now! And for what it's worth, Tigress was REALLY the one who handled MOST of the early eliminations back than!" / Yakkity says: "It's all a matter or perspective! You can't get hung up on the fact, that something bad happens to someone else you're REALLY close to! It's probably happened to a lot of OTHER people to! Besides, when you think about it; everything can actually be an OPPORTUNITY for you to grow and develop, in order to realize your TRUE potential! I...know it's not the BEST thing to say, but I feel that if Sway-Sway didn't get eliminated when he did; Buhdeuce might have never GOTTEN the incentive to go as far as he HAS! It...will be DIFFICULT to eliminate him, if he DOESN'T win immunity in THIS challenge!" / Spongebob says: "Honestly speaking? I think the world NEEDS more sensitive males right now. The fact of the matter is, not all; but far too many men throughout history, have been too detached from their emotions. They let their EGO control their actions, and therefore RARELY think about the consequences! But if you feel with your HEART, it's almost ALWAYS the right course of action to take!" / Buhdeuce says: "Spongebob is right! I can't let up now, when I'm so close to the finish line! I got to make the last push, and go ALL the way across! That's what Sway-Sway would do!" (End Confessional) Marlene says: "There's Zim and Gonard!" Yakkity says: "Were there any two eliminations any MORE obvious this season?" Buhdeuce says: "I highly doubt it. The question was never IF Zim would be eliminated; but WHEN!" Spongebob says: "All I know is, Gonard didn't perform NEARLY as well in THIS season, as he did in his LAST season!" Sniz says: "Well, we never KNOW how things can change for contestants! Not everyone's game can improve, you know!" (Confessional) Sniz says: "Although, it would be kind of cool if that DID happen; for US anyways!" / Yakkity says: "Let's be honest; Invader Zim was like MINUS one contestant ANYWAYS! So, if you THINK about it; the Silver Snakes/Purple Parrots actually broke EVEN with HIS elimination!" / Spongebob says: "There were many ways this season could've gone down differently, had different contestants been on different teams! All I know is, for what it's worth; I'm glad that I was on the Green Monkeys for that entire time!" Marlene sticks her head in, and she says: "Me, to!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Blonda and Squidward!" Yakkity says: "It's really Squidward's OWN fault he got ELIMINATED! If he had JUST swallowed his pride and APOLOGIZED to Spongebob in the FIRST place, he would've been able to stay on LONGER!" Spongebob says: "Well, I wasn't going to FORCE him to apologize to me! In the first place, it would've been INSINCERE! And secondly, it would've been WRONG! You can't just FORCE someone to apologize to you! Well, technically you COULD; but that's FROWNED upon in MOST proper areas of society!" Marlene says: "I know how THAT feels like! It took me AGES before I felt like I could HONESTLY apologize for what I did in season three, to Wally and Captain Retro!" Buhdeuce says: "At least Squidward's career has FINALLY taken off thanks to Blonda's help! Perhaps he can finally BE happy with his own life now!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Yeah, it actually IS quite impressive for me to survive BEING on a team filled with SO many dysfunctional contestants! Even if most of my victories HAVE been 'Victory by endurance', it's still a victory that COUNTS!" / Spongebob says: "It took me a long time to figure out that there are MANY different personality types in this world, and not every single one of them is going to be compatible with every other personality type in the world. Even so, I still think it's important that we all do our best; to try to get along together in the best way that we can!" / Marlene says: "I've started to be on speaking terms with Captain Retro again. As it turns out, he...had his own misguided ideas about love. He wasn't really so much in LOVE with me, as he was with the idea of me! He admitted that he unconsciously, projected his own idea of the ideal woman onto me; and I was willing to play into it, not realizing that it wasn't the right thing to do! I guess we BOTH had to grow up, and realize that he should love the TRUE version of a woman; and I learned not to go along with someone's IDEA of an ideal woman, because it's not healthy for EITHER of us in the long run!" / Buhdeuce says: "I think it's kind of weird how Squidward's career got so much BETTER after having BEEN a contestant on this show! Kind of like Sway-Sway. Apparently, he's having a successful career of his own! I've got to ask him more about it, once I get to see him again!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "Hold it, time out! Turn off the treadmill, Johnny Krill!" Johnny says: "Oh, all right!" And Johnny turns the treadmill off, and Sniz slows the car down to a stop! Yakkity asks: "Why did we stop? Is something wrong?" Sniz says: "Yeah, something's wrong! For starters, I almost forgot to announce the challenge that we're going to DO after this retrospective is over! Olmec, tell us what today's legend is!" Olmec says: "Today's legend, is The Legend Of The Lucky Pocket Watch of Henry Ford!" Marlene says: "Oh! So THAT'S why we're using a car for this retrospective!" Sniz says: "Exactly! Unfortunately, I've got to take a restroom break; and I suggest you all do so to!" Spongebob says: "Good idea!" Buhdeuce says: "I'm flying there!" Sniz says: "You should all probably take a bathroom break, to. But don't go away, because we'll finish up with our retrospective, before we tackle today's legend; on today's episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" / (Commercial Break) / I'll break here and stop for now. Enough said, for now!
  6. It's time to feel the need, the need for SPEED in the quarter-final match-up of "Total Cartoon Legends!" / Sniz is looking at public domain footage of cars as they have gotten faster throughout the years, and he says: "Last time on Total Cartoon Legends, we were down to the Final Five! And while Spongebob was used to partnering up with Yakkity, and Marlene was used to partnering up with Buhdeuce; Dudley ended up being partnered with Spongebob, while Yakkity got stuck with Johnny Krill! But Yakkity, who SOMEHOW managed to survive being in an alliance with BULMA; somehow managed to SURVIVE being partnered with Johnny Krill as well! Not only that, but Yakkity actually WON immunity and a reward, in a challenge revolving around Benjamin Franklin! And that left Dudley Puppy, the only contestant without an alliance partner, eliminated from the game! Now, at long last, we are finally down to the Final Four! Spongebob Squarepants, Marlene Otter, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity Yak have all beaten 42 other contestants to get here! They are now guaranteed a minimum of a $40 million payout just for winding up in fourth place! However, only can win the grand prize of a $44.44 million cash reward! Things are about to get FAST, as the contestants will soon RACE for the gold, AND the glory; on a super-charged episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "And remember, objects in the mirror are CLOSER than they appear!" / Instead of the normal show open, it shows a fast-paced montage of Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity in all of their various victories against the other contestants this season, set to Steppenwolf's MEGA hit song, "Born To Be Wild!" / Steppenwolf sings: "Get your motor runnin', head out on the highway! Lookin' for adventure, and whatever comes our way! Yeah, darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once and explode into space! I like smoke and lightning, Heavy Metal thunder! Racin' with the wind, and the feelin' that I'm under. Yeah, Darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once, and explode into space! Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild! We can climb so high, I never wanna die! Born to be wild! Born to be wild! (Instrumental Solo) Whoo! Whoo! Get your motor runnin', head out on the highway! Lookin' for adventure, and whatever comes our way! Yeah, Darlin', go and make it happen! Take the world in a love embrace! Fire all of your guns at once, and explode into space! Like a true nature's child, we were born, born to be wild! We can climb so high, I never wanna die! Born to be wild! Born to be wild!" (Instrumental Solo until the montage and song ends)! / "The Legend Of The Lucky Pocket Watch of Henry Ford!" / It is late at night, and Spongebob and Yakkity are arriving back from their reward trip in Philadelphia! Spongebob says: "That Philadelphia trip sure WAS educational! I definitely absorbed a LOT of interesting facts!" Yakkity says: "It's too bad Sniz wouldn't let the Fairy Godparents film anymore of our stay, there. That footage would've been really USEFUL to some people!" Spongebob says: "Yeah, but according to General Barracuda..." Spongebob MORPHS into a likeness of General Barracuda, and doing his BEST Mr. T impersonation, Spongebob says: "Listen, you FOO! There is simply NO audience for an hour long infomercial about the city of Philadelphia, and I PITY the FOO; who don't believe what I'm saying!" Yakkity laughs at that, and he says: "THAT'S General Barracuda, all right!" Spongebob morphs back to normal, and he says: "You SAID it! At least WE'RE the lucky ones! Bubble Bass' Mother actually has to LIVE with him!" Yakkity says: "Yeah; but SOMEHOW, they find a way to make it work!" Spongebob says: "I couldn't even BEGIN to imagine how THAT works out!" Yakkity says: "My Grandma once told me some couples can only function LIVING like that! Personally, I don't see the appeal to it! Living like that would get DOWNRIGHT exhausting from MY point of view! Not at all ATTRACTIVE, if you know what I mean!" Spongebob says: "Well, it's not for us to decide how General Barracuda and his wife want to live, anyways! It's THEIR collective decisions, and they're the ones who have to deal with it!" Yakkity says: "Speaking of decisions, I suppose YOU'LL have to decide who you're going to take to the Final Three with you if you WIN this challenge!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "Yeah, IF I win! That's what it's all going to boil down to, isn't it?" Yakkity says: "You almost sound as if you don't WANT to win!" Spongebob says: "It's not that I don't WANT to win! It would be very NICE to win! But winning, means I'd have to see one more contestant being voted off, even if I'm not the one actually VOTING that contestant off!" Yakkity sighs, and he says: "I know what you mean. That's probably the biggest DRAWBACK about being on this show; even if you're not personally responsible for it, you STILL have to see at least SOME of your friends being eliminated!" Spongebob says: "And we have just this upcoming challenge and one more after that. I personally have NO idea how Private, Dog, Stimpy, Sandy, Larry, and Bubble Bass were ever able to DO it!" Yakkity says: "Well, you might ask MARLENE if she's up for it! She's the only one out of us who's ever actually BEEN to the Final Three before, even IF she didn't win!" Spongebob says: "True! And I remember her performance of Total Cartoon Action well enough. Even IF the moves she made weren't considered popular, she definitely did what she HAD to do in order to make it to that point! But...I don't think the cut throat approach is cut out for me!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, I wasn't a big fan of Bulma's approach, EITHER! But, you definitely can't argue with a LONG list of contestants that SHE had a hand in eliminating in HER seasons! Let's face the facts; SOMEONE might have to make a hard decision before the Final Challenge gets here. Do you, think I'll honestly be able to get to the Final Three?" Spongebob says: "I couldn't say for certain one way or the other. But even if THIS is as far as you can get, you'll STILL leave $40 million richer!" Yakkity says: "That's true. But I don't see HOW either of us can compete with Buhdeuce who's turned into a metaphorical buzz saw, and Marlene who has the most collective experience out of all of us!" Spongebob says: "Well, I'm sure Buhdeuce had HIS doubts about being able to beat Tigress, and he STILL managed to do it!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, I guess you're right! We WON'T know if we CAN do it, unless we give it our BEST effort! And we have some of the best reasons for TRYING! You, to avenge your eliminated friends; and me, because I want to make my Grandma proud! Let's give everyone we're playing for, a performance they'll remember for a LONG time after this!" Spongebob says: "Agreed! It's time to play for ALL the marbles, and lay ALL our cards on the table!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "It sure is strange, that near the end of this season, I've managed to find someone who in many ways, is similar to the way I used to be at the start of this season. I was utterly scared, insecure, and wanting so MUCH for everyone to like me! Over the course of this season, I had to learn the hard way that not everyone WILL like me the way I want them to! And...I'm capable of making irrational, rash decisions the way Squidward has. Those are short-comings that I've had to accept, and things that I'll need to be aware of even AFTER this season is over! But I know this entire experience has made me a better sponge, because I now know how to express myself properly, and not bottle up my emotions like I did in the past! And I owe it all to the help of my friends! I'm playing as much for them, as I am for myself! And I know they'll be cheering for me, should I make it all the way to the Finals! I must do my best for THEIR sake, as well!" / Yakkity says: "My father disappeared when I was eight. No one knows what happened to him. My mom wasn't able to provide for me on her own, so she gave me to my Grandma, my Father's mother, to raise me while she could find a career that would earn her enough money to raise me again! Even though my mom hasn't found her niche yet, certainly NOT from a lack of trying; I still love my mother, and regardless of what happens between now and the end of this season, I'll return home and give my mother the life she's ALWAYS dreamed of; and me, my mother, and my grandma will have a happy life for hopefully many MORE years to come!" (End Confessional) It is early morning, and Marlene and Buhdeuce are having a meeting in the hotel conference room. Buhdeuce asks: "Marlene, how many eliminated contestants do YOU think, are surprised that I managed to make it THIS far in the game?!" Marlene THINKS about it, and she says: "Let's see...I'd say about, 24 of them!" Buhdeuce says: "That sounds about right!" Marlene says: "But regardless of your OWN personal victory, this is where a win for EITHER of us would be REALLY important to getting us closer to the Finals! After all, only ONE of us can win immunity now; so these next two challenges will determine whether or not YOU stay safe, based on how WELL you play the game!" Buhdeuce asks: "Do you think I should do my best?!" Marlene says: "It's hard to say. It certainly worked for Spongebob, Larry, Reggie, and Bubble Bass! But let's not forget, Dog basically got to share a win with Larry by sheer LUCK, and Patrick SOMEHOW managed to get to the Final Three in season three, without really MEANING to! In any case, I don't think I can honestly say what approach would be best for you. In the end, you have to figure out what's right for YOU, by yourself! It may sound a bit cliche, but there's a reason that information has stuck around for as LONG as it has; it often turns out to BE the truth!" (Confessional) Marlene sighs in relief, and she says: "I didn't jinx it! Against all odds, I made it to the Final Three again! Now, comes the hardest part of this season; seeing whether or not I can eliminate two more contestants! Spongebob is OUT of the question, he's WAY too popular! So, it boils down to how well Yakkity and Buhdeuce perform; in addition to my OWN performance! If Buhdeuce is going to the Final Three, he needs to EARN it by himself! Nobody else can do it for him!" / Buhdeuce yells: "YES!! I'm in the Final Four! I'm in the Final Four! I feel SO excited, I feel like I can FLY!!" And to Buhdeuce's SURPRISE, he actually DOES start flying! Buhdeuce says: "WAIT! I can FLY now? I can FLY NOW!!!! I never thought this day would come, but I've finally EARNED my Breadwinner wings! Sway-Sway says that all the TRUE Breadwinner legends get them someday! Now, I'm up there with some of the legendary greats! No matter what happens now, I can go home feeling like I've won my OWN personal victory! Nothing will change in my friendship with Sway-Sway, but now I know; that even if I have to solve a problem without him, I really CAN do it if I apply EVERYTHING I've learned, in order to do it in REAL life!" (End Confessional) It is breakfast time, and the remaining contestants are eating their breakfast. Yakkity says: "The cafeteria SURE seems a lot more empty with just the four of us, now." Buhdeuce says: "It was a lot MORE lively when everyone else was here WITH us!" Spongebob says: "Speaking of 'Lively'; Marlene, how WERE you able to get to the Final Three WITHOUT feeling guilty about eliminating SOME of the contestants in season two?" Marlene says: "In the first place, at least NINE of those contestants were eliminated in ways that I either had no control over; or they would've been eliminated even WITHOUT my help! Secondly, I had a different mind set back than! I didn't think in a way that would insure my own PERSONAL popularity with all of the contestants! I just wanted to get to the Final Three! If I had known back THAN that I could do it WITHOUT playing the 'Flirt Card' at all, I would've done so! Of course, you've never HAD that problem! And if the reason you WANTED to ask me how I DON'T feel guilty about eliminating someone? The sad fact of the matter is, Spongebob; if you DO end up having to eliminate someone LIKE Bulma Briefs, than you probably WILL feel guilty about it! And that's perfectly NATURAL! I don't think that it doesn't MEAN that you DON'T care! The fact that you DO feel guilty about Bulma's elimination, is actually the fact that you DID care about her elimination! We all do things in our life that we might feel guilty about! I know how THAT feels due to TRYING to have a FAKE romance with Captain Retro...I'm REALLY not proud of that! But for what it's worth, it was more MY mistake than his! He was a NICE dog, and he didn't deserve to be led on like that! The point is, I've learned not to pull stunts like that anymore! I guess you could say, that a mistake doesn't have to BE for nothing; as long as you learn from your mistake and improve from it, than THAT'S what really counts!" Spongebob says: "Thanks for sharing that with me, Marlene. I feel like I can tackle the Final Four, now!" Marlene says: "Anything to help a fellow marine mammal!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "So, I'm not the only one who can feel guilty about something. I guess EVERYONE can feel guilty about something...especially if they're truly HONEST with themselves! But having that guilt isn't a sign of weakness, it's a sign that you care, and you WANT to do better! And if you DO take a mistake that you've made to heart, than that's a sign that you ARE doing better, because it's only from learning from the mistakes that you make, that you can grow and mature into becoming who you are MEANT to be!" / Marlene sighs, and she says: "Yeah, I probably just HANDED a Final Two slot to Spongebob right then and there. But for me? It's better to know NOW, who I'll compete against in the Finals! And if it's someone who IS on good terms with me, that's just an added bonus from MY perspective!" (End Confessional) Johnny Krill walks in, but he doesn't have the gong! Buhdeuce asks: "What? No gong today?" Johnny says: "Well, you made it to the Final Four! You know everyone who GOT eliminated, and you're the last four left! Out of all the contestants on THIS half-season, you're the best of the bunch! And...we won't have a Moat Challenge, today!" Yakkity asks: "Why? Did Cosmo FORGET to put Chlorine in the Moat?" Johnny says: "No. General Barracuda says that the time has come to recap all the contestants the four of you have surpassed, in order to get to this point!" Buhdeuce asks: "So...are we NOT having a challenge?" Johnny says: "Don't worry, there will BE a challenge, AFTER the retrospective! So come with me, and let's get this over with!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "I never thought I'd see the day when Johnny WOULDN'T be excited about announcing the upcoming challenge!" / Johnny asks: "How could I possibly be excited? I have no personal STAKE in it!" / Buhdeuce says: "I guess Sniz wants to get the Retrospective out of the way FIRST, BEFORE we head into the challenge! Suits me just fine; it gives me MORE time to mentally prepare myself!" (End Confessional) Johnny Krill leads the Final Four contestants, and see Sniz on a car-sized treadmill, in the driver's seat of a red sports car that can comfortably seat four OTHER passengers! Sniz says: "Welcome, contestants! Or should I say more appropriately; Quarter-Finalists? You have gotten past 42 other contestants to get to this coveted place; so what better time to do a retrospective?!" Johnny says: "You never did a retrospective during Total Cartoon Island Strikes Back!" Sniz says: "That's because there were only fourteen of you! And besides, the studio VETOED that idea! The point is, we're going to do a DRIVING retrospective now, for these four Legends who have proven to be the BEST of the legends!" Buhdeuce asks: "Can't I FLY?! Because I can do that, now!" Marlene says: "At this point, I'm not sure if ANYTHING can surprise me!" General Barracuda says: "Absolutely NOT, Buhdeuce! If it were up to ME, you'd get NOTHING; and LIKE it!" Yakkity says: "I heard of 'Telling it like it is;' but that seems a bit MUCH for MY liking!" Spongebob says: "You said it!" Sniz says: "In any case, we have a schedule to keep to! And the sooner we get this done, the sooner we can do the challenge!" Marlene says: "Very well. I CALL SHOTGUN!!" And she dashes to the front-side passenger seat before anyone else can grab it! (Confessional) General Barracuda chuckles, and he says: "I got to hand it to Marlene! She sees her opportunities, and takes them when she can! She definitely has MY vote for winning!" / Johnny says: "Well, I least I'll get a little bit of retrospective recognition this time around! It's better than nothing!" / Buhdeuce says: "It's sad that Marlene has grown numb to the surprises this show has to offer. At least I haven't!" / Marlene says: "If I'm going to do this retrospective, I WANT to be as comfortable as possible!" / Yakkity says: "General Barracuda is SO lucky he works on THIS show! I'm not sure if he COULD get work anywhere else!" / Spongebob says: "This driving thing is probably a PREVIEW of the challenge we're going to have! Leave it to Sniz to make a SUBTLE surprise, for a change!" (End Confessional) Spongebob, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity all take seats, with Buhdeuce getting STUCK in the middle of the back! Buhdeuce asks: "Hey! How come I have to get STUCK in the middle?!" Yakkity says: "Well, you do fit the BEST in the middle seat!" And Johnny Krill plays a rim-shot! Marlene asks: "THAT was worthy of a rim-shot?!" Spongebob says: "Take what you can get! It's going to be a LONG ride to nowhere, LITERALLY!" Sniz says: "Even so, I want EVERYONE to buckle up!" And everyone does so! Sniz says: "Johnny Krill, turn on the treadmill!" And Johnny turns on the treadmill, and Sniz begins driving the four contestants along a patch of scenery, that looks SUSPICIOUSLY a LOT like a "Repeat Pan" from an old Hanna-Barbera cartoon! Buhdeuce asks: "WAIT! Hanna-Barbera is allowing us to use one of THEIR old backgrounds?!" Sniz asks: "Are you KIDDING?! Have you SEEN 'Teen Titans Go!'? Hanna-Barbera's parent company Warner Bros. is willing to do ANYTHING for money!" And while the Repeat Pan plays, the contestants see images of the former contestants that have been eliminated! Spongebob says: "There's Kowalski and Private!" Buhdeuce says: "How in the world were THOSE two eliminated first?!" Marlene says: "Two reasons, for not thinking out their whole plan through; thanks a LOT Skipper, and the fact that the Silver Snakes and the Blue Barracudas wanted to use THEM as scapegoats for failing the first challenge!" Yakkity says: "I can vouch for THOSE view-points! Your assessment is TOTALLY accurate!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "I'm sure if Tigress had HER way, Spongebob and I would've been eliminated FIRST! Good thing the Green Monkeys got paired up with the Red Jaguars, and I was on the same team as HER!" / Marlene says: "Personally, I have NEVER seen the appeal of acting like a 'Leeroy Jenkins'! So why do SIX of the seven major guys I know of in MY life feel the need to act OUT like that?! Thank goodness for MAURICE to provide me with a SMALL, remaining bit of sanity for MY sake, as well as his!" / Yakkity says: "Trust me, there was no SHORTAGE of contestants back THAN, myself included; who felt it was BEST for those two to go FIRST! I mean, at least I managed to make it all the way here, so I don't see any OTHER way I might have made it here otherwise!" (End Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "There's Kaput and Johnny Krill!" Johnny shouts: "I'm also standing RIGHT here!" Sniz says: "You're still TECHNICALLY eliminated!" Marlene asks: "Any idea why THOSE two got eliminated?" Yakkity says: "It was simply a result of SO many plans clashing together at once! Tigress wanted Aang gone, Aang wanted Tigress gone, and Bulma suspected that BOTH of them had an immunity pendant, so she told Sandy to vote 'Someone inconsequential'! If I had KNOWN Johnny Krill meant THAT much to Spongebob at the time, I would've considered voting for someone OTHER than Tigress and Aang!" Spongebob says: "That's very considerate of you to say!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Don't get me wrong; Kaput and Johnny Krill probably WOULD have been eliminated ANYWAYS even WITHOUT the 'Gambit Pile-Up'. The fact that it happened WHEN it did, just made it happen a lot sooner!" / Yakkity says: "Come to think of it, the fact that I wasn't made AWARE of Bulma's plan, because I wasn't IN an alliance with her at the time; was probably a major factor as to why I got INTO an alliance with her in the first place!" / Spongebob says: "It's always refreshing for me, when someone ELSE admits that they've made a mistake! It makes me glad to know that I'm NOT the only one who makes them!" (End Confessional) Marlene says: "There's Haggis and Monster Krumholtz!" Spongebob says: "Poor Haggis, he was SO robbed by Aang!" Buhdeuce says: "Even so, he really didn't HAVE the stamina to compete with us! And it's not like YOU could think of any way for Monster to be relevant to YOUR team! If anything, their eliminations were basically MERCY eliminations for everyone else!" Yakkity says: "And all things considered, I was probably ONE of the contestants to benefit FROM them!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "All things considered, if someone IS going to get eliminated; they should be eliminated on their OWN terms, not terms that someone ELSE randomly decides! Accident or not, I'm GLAD I was able to teach Aang a LESSON in respecting his elders; among OTHER things!" / Buhdeuce says: "I feel the only thing the rest of us missed out on, from Haggis being eliminated so soon; is that we didn't have more time to learn the tricks of a TRUE master actor!" / Yakkity says: "It's a pity Monster didn't stick around longer, we could've made for a very GOOD combination if we ever got to work together!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Aang and Snaptrap!" And EVERYONE else, simultaneously says: "BOO!!!!" Johnny says: "It serves Aang RIGHT, only getting eliminated two episodes after I did!" Marlene says: "Of course, I don't think ANY of us would've EVER suspected that it would be SPONGEBOB who would deliver the Coup de Grace to Aang, possessed by Master Coelaceanth!" Buhdeuce says: "Yeah, how come you've never used your Super Saiyan 2 abilities AFTER that?" Spongebob says: "Come on! If I did that, none of you would have a CHANCE against me! I only want to use those powers in an emergency like THAT one! And it's sad that Snaptrap didn't REALIZE that he wasn't acting evil on his own free will; at least we made sure Anti-Cosmo got punished when we realized THAT truth!" Yakkity says: "I sure am glad for the fact that Spongebob is on OUR side!" (Confessional) Johnny says: "Aang is LUCKY that Sniz decided to eliminate him by ejection, because I'm sure that every OTHER contestant; even if they didn't appear on THIS half-season, would've voted him off if given the chance! And I can safely say that, because I would've been just ONE of them!" / Marlene shakes her head, and she says: "It's sad how SOME people can let fame go to their heads! I just consider myself lucky that I'm not ONE of them!" / Spongebob says: "Will I ever use my Super Saiyan 2 abilities again? It's hard to say. All I know is that if I need to, I definitely will! Once you know your own true potential being THAT good, you NEVER forget how THAT feels EVER again!" / Buhdeuce says: "I'll admit, I was caught off guard by Aang when he attacked as a contestant! But if we were to fight NOW, I could DEFINITELY take him on!" / Yakkity says: "It's a shame that Snaptrap was only recently FREED from being evil. He could've been such a nice rodent contestant to the rest of us!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Darwin and Heffer Wolfe!" Johnny asks: "Does anyone remember anything noteworthy about THEM?!" Spongebob winces, and he says: "Not REALLY, and I'M being generous!" Marlene says: "Well, it's HARD when you're in a contest with over 3 dozen OTHER contestants! I'm just lucky I was able to push my WAY out of that crowded field!" Yakkity says: "And I'm lucky that Bulma was willing to help ME through it!" Buhdeuce says: "And I'm lucky that Sway-Sway has been my inspiration since THEN, and continues to be so NOW!" (Confessional) Sniz says: "Well, there were bound to be SOME contestants that WEREN'T going to give us something to talk about; unlike a Bonnie Raitt song!" / Spongebob says: "Probably the biggest reason why I don't remember much about them, is because I was STILL dealing with some personal issues of MINE at the time! It had nothing to do with them, it was just something I had to go through!" / Marlene says: "I'm definitely LUCKY, in the fact that unlike Darwin and Heffer, I HAD a good personality to fall back on; while I waited for the field to clear up a little!" / Yakkity says: "Personally speaking, I probably went through MORE elimination ceremonies than anyone else! If I didn't have Bulma as a friend, I'm not sure if I would've lasted as LONG as I have! I definitely owe her at least SOME money, if nothing else if I DO win the big prize!" / Buhdeuce says: "Even though I really don't see HOW Sway-Sway could've gotten through all the challenges that I have had to go through on my own, I still wish he could've at least had the CHANCE to go through them! At least I was able to go through them for the BOTH of us!" (End Confessional) Yakkity says: "There's Judy and Sway-Sway!...That's, STILL probably a bit of a sore spot for Buhdeuce; isn't it?!" Buhdeuce breaks down and cries: "Sway-Sway, you were robbed TOO soon! BAH!!!!" Marlene says: "Look on the BRIGHT side! Not...EVERYONE would've voted HIM off! Spongebob wouldn't!" And Spongebob says: "Of COURSE not!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, and Judy was ALSO taken out than, so she KNOWS what it feels like to be the first batch of contestants eliminated!" Spongebob says: "He's right! This is no time to break down! Sway-Sway WANTS you to keep going!" Buhdeuce dries his eyes, and he says: "You're right! I need to DO this, for Sway-Sway!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Would I have voted off Sway-Sway if I had the opportunity to do so, knowing what I know now? Hard to say. All I know is, I have no way of knowing how the REST of the half-season would've gone down, had Sway-Sway not been eliminated than! For instance, I might not be here right now! And for what it's worth, Tigress was REALLY the one who handled MOST of the early eliminations back than!" / Yakkity says: "It's all a matter or perspective! You can't get hung up on the fact, that something bad happens to someone else you're REALLY close to! It's probably happened to a lot of OTHER people to! Besides, when you think about it; everything can actually be an OPPORTUNITY for you to grow and develop, in order to realize your TRUE potential! I...know it's not the BEST thing to say, but I feel that if Sway-Sway didn't get eliminated when he did; Buhdeuce might have never GOTTEN the incentive to go as far as he HAS! It...will be DIFFICULT to eliminate him, if he DOESN'T win immunity in THIS challenge!" / Spongebob says: "Honestly speaking? I think the world NEEDS more sensitive males right now. The fact of the matter is, not all; but far too many men throughout history, have been too detached from their emotions. They let their EGO control their actions, and therefore RARELY think about the consequences! But if you feel with your HEART, it's almost ALWAYS the right course of action to take!" / Buhdeuce says: "Spongebob is right! I can't let up now, when I'm so close to the finish line! I got to make the last push, and go ALL the way across! That's what Sway-Sway would do!" (End Confessional) Marlene says: "There's Zim and Gonard!" Yakkity says: "Were there any two eliminations any MORE obvious this season?" Buhdeuce says: "I highly doubt it. The question was never IF Zim would be eliminated; but WHEN!" Spongebob says: "All I know is, Gonard didn't perform NEARLY as well in THIS season, as he did in his LAST season!" Sniz says: "Well, we never KNOW how things can change for contestants! Not everyone's game can improve, you know!" (Confessional) Sniz says: "Although, it would be kind of cool if that DID happen; for US anyways!" / Yakkity says: "Let's be honest; Invader Zim was like MINUS one contestant ANYWAYS! So, if you THINK about it; the Silver Snakes/Purple Parrots actually broke EVEN with HIS elimination!" / Spongebob says: "There were many ways this season could've gone down differently, had different contestants been on different teams! All I know is, for what it's worth; I'm glad that I was on the Green Monkeys for that entire time!" Marlene sticks her head in, and she says: "Me, to!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "There's Blonda and Squidward!" Yakkity says: "It's really Squidward's OWN fault he got ELIMINATED! If he had JUST swallowed his pride and APOLOGIZED to Spongebob in the FIRST place, he would've been able to stay on LONGER!" Spongebob says: "Well, I wasn't going to FORCE him to apologize to me! In the first place, it would've been INSINCERE! And secondly, it would've been WRONG! You can't just FORCE someone to apologize to you! Well, technically you COULD; but that's FROWNED upon in MOST proper areas of society!" Marlene says: "I know how THAT feels like! It took me AGES before I felt like I could HONESTLY apologize for what I did in season three, to Wally and Captain Retro!" Buhdeuce says: "At least Squidward's career has FINALLY taken off thanks to Blonda's help! Perhaps he can finally BE happy with his own life now!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Yeah, it actually IS quite impressive for me to survive BEING on a team filled with SO many dysfunctional contestants! Even if most of my victories HAVE been 'Victory by endurance', it's still a victory that COUNTS!" / Spongebob says: "It took me a long time to figure out that there are MANY different personality types in this world, and not every single one of them is going to be compatible with every other personality type in the world. Even so, I still think it's important that we all do our best; to try to get along together in the best way that we can!" / Marlene says: "I've started to be on speaking terms with Captain Retro again. As it turns out, he...had his own misguided ideas about love. He wasn't really so much in LOVE with me, as he was with the idea of me! He admitted that he unconsciously, projected his own idea of the ideal woman onto me; and I was willing to play into it, not realizing that it wasn't the right thing to do! I guess we BOTH had to grow up, and realize that he should love the TRUE version of a woman; and I learned not to go along with someone's IDEA of an ideal woman, because it's not healthy for EITHER of us in the long run!" / Buhdeuce says: "I think it's kind of weird how Squidward's career got so much BETTER after having BEEN a contestant on this show! Kind of like Sway-Sway. Apparently, he's having a successful career of his own! I've got to ask him more about it, once I get to see him again!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "Hold it, time out! Turn off the treadmill, Johnny Krill!" Johnny says: "Oh, all right!" And Johnny turns the treadmill off, and Sniz slows the car down to a stop! Yakkity asks: "Why did we stop? Is something wrong?" Sniz says: "Yeah, something's wrong! For starters, I almost forgot to announce the challenge that we're going to DO after this retrospective is over! Olmec, tell us what today's legend is!" Olmec says: "Today's legend, is The Legend Of The Lucky Pocket Watch of Henry Ford!" Marlene says: "Oh! So THAT'S why we're using a car for this retrospective!" Sniz says: "Exactly! Unfortunately, I've got to take a restroom break; and I suggest you all do so to!" Spongebob says: "Good idea!" Buhdeuce says: "I'm flying there!" Sniz says: "You should all probably take a bathroom break, to. But don't go away, because we'll finish up with our retrospective, before we tackle today's legend; on today's episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" / (Commercial Break) / I'll break here and stop for now. Enough said, for now!
  7. You know the drill; long re-run, so I'll just get right to it! / Sniz is looking at some of the previous, uncollected Legends from the half-season, and he says: "Last time, on Total Cartoon Legends; we were down to the Final Six! Spongebob and Yakkity both realized, their best chance for making it to the Final Four, was to make an alliance together! I never saw THAT coming! Meanwhile, because Po previously discovered that Yakkity was competing in order to make Yakkity's Grandma proud of him, was a far more noble goal than what Po was trying to accomplish; Po decided to sabotage his own performance during the challenge, by racking up penalty votes for himself! Interesting strategy, Po! In the end, Spongebob and Yakkity won Immunity and Reward! Po, with his Penalty Votes, ended up being the one to be eliminated! Now, we are down to the Final Five! Dudley, Marlene, Yakkity, Spongebob, and Buhdeuce! They have made it past 41 other contestants, but only FOUR of them will get to go to the Final Four! See how that works? In any ways, prepare yourselves; for a TRULY electrifying episode experience, of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "And remember; Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise!" / Instead of the normal show open, it shows the remaining contestants in a montage of their moments from their own show, and on the "Total Cartoon" show, performing antics requiring a lot of energy, and often lightning during their antics; all to the tune of the Information Society's hit song, "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)". / The Information Society sings: "It's worked so far, but we're not out yet. I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! Pure energy! Pure energy! Here I am in silence, looking 'round without a clue. I find myself alone again. All alone with you! I can see behind your eyes, the things that I don't know. If you hide away from me, how can our love grow? I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! I know I could break you down, but what good would it do? I could surely never know, that what you say is true! Here I am in silence, it's a game I have to play. You and I in silence, with nothing else to say! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! (Instrumental Break) Pure energy! Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind!" / And the song and montage ends! / "The Legend Of The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin!" / It is night-time, and Spongebob and Yakkity have returned from their vacation reward, into their hotel room. Yakkity says: "I'm so GLAD that my Grandma approves of you as a friend!" Spongebob says: "I'm happy that she THINKS of me as your friend! And...I'm sorry that I had to hear her CALLING you her 'BOUBALA'!" Yakkity says: "Oh, don't worry about it! I'm not the kind of guy who's ASHAMED of displays of affection like SOME people are! I actually wish more people were more accepting of WANTING affection! There's nothing wrong with being love and accepting love, as long as that love is healthy, and reciprocated by all parties involved!" Spongebob says: "I know how THAT feels! It took me a LONG time to realize how not EVERYONE is going to like you or me, the way you and I WANT them to! In fact, it's pretty FOOLISH to think it ever WILL happen! People are going to think the way they WANT to think! And as long as their points of view don't HURT anyone else physically, mentally, or emotionally; it's perfectly FINE for them to think the way they want! I'm just glad that you have such a good relationship with your Grandma! It's not something that everyone is able to have!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, and I know there probably WILL come a day when my Grandma...won't be around anymore! That's why I came onto this show NOW, so I could make her proud of me while she IS around!" Spongebob says: "Truthfully, I think you already have; just by being the kind, caring, nice yak that you are, that you always have been, and probably always WILL be!" Yakkity feels a WARM feeling inside of him, and Yakkity says: "Spongebob, you definitely HAVE come quite a ways from needing EVERYBODY to love you, to realizing that it's more important to love those who APPRECIATE and reciprocate YOUR love back to you! And I just want you to know, I appreciate the genuine kindness that you have displayed to me! And I plan to always appreciate your kindness, by displaying it to others!" Spongebob says: "I think that might be one of the BEST things we can do for the world! Be KIND to others, INSPIRE others with your kindness! And even if it DOESN'T affect EVERYONE, those who ARE affected by it, will SHARE the kindness with potentially EVERYONE they know!" Yakkity sighs in contentment, and he says: "Yeah, that WOULD be a pretty great thing to do, and I WILL do as often as I can!" (Confessional) Yakkity is sweating, and he says: "Spongebob DEFINITELY makes a guy feel appreciated, even for things that he once saw as mundane! PHEW!!!! I don't know why, but I feel all SWEATY! It's probably my button-up fur!" He ducks out of the camera frame, and he gasps: "My ADULT FUR! It came in! It FINALLY came in!" Yakkity comes back INTO frame, only now his fur no longer has buttons on it! Yakkity sighs, and he says: "All these years, all I had to remember of my father, was the fur pelt he left behind! My Grandma made it into a sweater for me, until the day my adult fur FINALLY grew in! I guess, all this emotional and mental growth that I've experienced, FINALLY made my adult fur grow in! At long last, I'm a REAL yak!" Yakkity looks at his old button-up fur, and he says: "No sense letting it go to waste, I think I'll keep it. It MIGHT come in handy someday!" / Spongebob says: "I believe Yakkity has ALWAYS had the potential to become a legend! I guess he just needed the confidence of someone like ME, to help him realize that potential was always inside of him! Yes, approval from others is always nice; but when all is said and done, you ultimately need to believe in YOURSELF, if you want to make your dreams come true!" (End Confessional) It is early morning, and Marlene and Buhdeuce are in the hotel lobby, discussing their next move! Buhdeuce excitedly says: "Can you believe it, Marlene?! We're almost at the Finish Line!" Marlene says: "Trust me! I've been anticipating this moment for quite a while now! However, this is the EXACT moment where we CANNOT let our guard down! After all, Kowalski; Gonard; Tigress; Otto; Zarbon; Jenny; Bulma; Po; Spongebob; and even I have tripped by being TOTALLY overconfident of our OWN skills before blowing it where it mattered the most!" Buhdeuce says: "And that's why it's a good thing that I'm teamed up with YOU; because you have personal experience of HAVING gone through such a thing before hand! Me? Not so much!" Marlene says: "Give yourself SOME credit! You've done a LOT better THIS season than you did in season three! That ALONE is a testament to how much you've GROWN as an individual! The end IS in sight! And that's why it's more important than EVER, to keep your mind focused, and follow through!" Buhdeuce says: "Keep my mind focused, and follow through! THAT Marlene, I can DEFINITELY do!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "I feel as though I've been waiting for the LONGEST time, to prove to everyone else that I'm MORE than just a pudgy duck with a love for bread and hanging with his best bro, Sway-Sway! Despite all my skills, I NEVER felt as though I got to express ALL of my skills to the best of my ability on my own show! And now, I finally feel as though I'm FINALLY breaking through the stigma of my own show! I feel almost FREE of my OLD image! It's getting to the Final Three, that will make me feel as though I've completely SHATTERED the old image that no longer suits my needs!" / Marlene says: "Initially, partnering with Buhdeuce WAS kind of a convenience for me! But now that I've actually SPENT some time with him and got to know him, he really IS a whole lot better than the show he WAS on, portrayed him as! In a way, he's kind of like MY 'Spear Counterpart', in that he's actually BEEN that skilled and capable all along, but never got the chance to properly express it! The hard part is, knowing that I'll eventually have to compete against him in the Final Three if it comes to that! But...I guess I'll cross THAT bridge if/and when I come to it, and NOT before!" (End Confessional) It is breakfast time, and the contestants are eating their breakfast! Dudley turns to Johnny Krill, and Dudley asks: "Johnny, do you have ANY idea how all the other contestants managed to get themselves into an alliance that DIDN'T involve ME?!" Johnny asks: "How would I honestly know? I didn't even last long enough as a contestant this season to even really GET into an Alliance!" Dudley says: "Well, I thought that perhaps, you could give me an HONEST outside out-look of the situation!" Johnny says: "Honestly, even if I did HAVE that kind of knowledge; I'm not allowed to share it with you. After all, as long as I'm employed by Sniz; I'm really NOT allowed to share knowledge that would give you an unfair advantage! Although, it's DEFINITELY a case of 'I Would Say It If I COULD Say It'!" Dudley says: "And I'm even surprised that you know the proper context of THAT writing technique!" (Confessional) Johnny groans, and he says: "Why is it, that whenever I HAPPEN to know something, it always comes as a gigantic SURPRISE to everyone?! A little funny the FIRST time, but the joke's REALLY old now!" / Dudley says: "I guess this is probably how Chameleon felt when HE had to go into the Final Five! I mean, I did get to support him; even if it didn't last long, but he STILL needed to get there on his own! But I didn't sign up with T.U.F.F. just to give up NOW! I will play until I can't play anymore! That is the creed, of a TRUE contender!" (End Confessional) General Barracuda comes in with the Gong, and BANGS it as loud as he can! Marlene sarcastically asks: "Could you bang that a little LOUDER? I think there were like two people in CHINA who couldn't HEAR you!" General Barracuda chuckles, and he says: "Don't tempt me! In any case, I came here to announce that Po WAS eliminated at the last Elimination Ceremony, in CASE you thought that was JUST a dream!" Yakkity says: "Trust me, we DIDN'T!" General Barracuda says: "Be that as it may, Sniz has declared that breakfast time is over, and your presence is required at the Moat, INCLUDING Johnny Krill's! That is all!" Johnny asks: "Why would MY presence be needed?" Spongebob says: "The same reason YOUR presence was needed in the episode, 'Extreme Spots'; would be MY best guess!" Johnny says: "I sure hope so! I could DEFINITELY use a major boost in my popularity!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Don't get me wrong! I definitely LIKE being a nice guy, but even a yak like me CAN have his limits, when it comes to General Barracuda's loud GONG banging!" / Marlene says: "Honestly? The only thing I can think of that's LOUDER than General Barracuda's loud Gong banging, is the sound of an F-18 jet fighter flying WAY too close to your home! Not a pleasant sound, I might add!" / Spongebob says: "If I'm being honest, my show is WAY over-due for another actual appearance by Johnny Krill!" / Johnny Krill says: "Now that there are just five contestants, this is the PERFECT opportunity for me to break out of just being an extreme athlete, and showcase my more INTELLIGENT side!" And Cosmo can be heard loudly LAUGHING off-screen! Johnny sternly says: "Don't laugh! I KNOW I would be able to beat you in ANY trivia challenge that YOU would participate in!" And Cosmo QUICKLY stops laughing! Johnny nods his head, and he says: "That's what I thought!" (End Confessional) The contestants head out to Moat, only to find conditions a little more STORMY than usual! As "Ride Of The Valkyries" plays in the background, Cosmo is seen holding a kite that HAS a metal key on it, while Sniz is blowing Industrial Air Machines, and has some automatic sprinklers turned on! Sniz yells: "This is PERFECT! Just one more step, and our experiment will be complete! Wanda, produce the LIGHTNING!!!!" Wanda actually SMILES, and she says: "I've wanted to do this FOREVER!!!!" Cosmo nervously says: "WAIT! Let's discuss this RATION--!!!!" But Cosmo never gets to finish his thought, as Wanda ZAPS the key with lightning, and it travels down and JOLTS Cosmo with 2,000 Watts or 200 Volts of Electricity, and Cosmo is BLOWN backwards, as he gets covered in charred soot! Sniz turns off the equipment, and he says: "It works! It REALLY works!" Buhdeuce asks: "WHAT works; dare I ask?" Sniz says: "I'm glad you did! You see, I decided to re-enact the classic experiment that Benjamin Franklin performed with a kite and a metal key! By proving that lightning is attracted to metal, Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity!" Dudley says: "And I'm guessing that's related to today's legend!" Sniz says: "You guessed right! Olmec, tell us what today's legend is!" Olmec says: "Today's legend, is The Legend Of The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin!" Spongebob says: "Wow! We're dealing with a REAL genius this time around!" Sniz says: "That's right! Not only did Benjamin Franklin help develop the United States Patent Office, he made quite a few inventions himself! But what ISN'T widely known about Benjamin Franklin, is that he actually helped POPULARIZE the sport of swimming! Therefore, crossing the Moat will actually be straight-forward!" Marlene says: "Except for the CATCH that follows!" Sniz groans, and he says: "Oh, why must you ALWAYS assume that we have a CATCH for these things?!" Marlene says: "Because you usually DO, that's WHY!" Johnny says: "To be fair, she's not really WRONG!!!!" Sniz sighs, as he is CLEARLY trying to keep his composure, and he just says: "Johnny, DON'T make me fire you! Look, ordinarily, we WOULD have a catch; except coming UP with a catch for the Moat Crossing Challenge for 26 episodes is HARD! And besides, we DON'T have unlimited resources, you know! I mean, TECHNICALLY; with Fairy Godparents we COULD, but that's not the point! The point is, we decided to give you a BREAK for getting to the Final Five! It might be the LAST one you get, barring the next Performance Review!" Buhdeuce says: "FINALLY! A REAL Moat crossing challenge!" General Barracuda shouts: "IGNORE HIM!" Sniz says: "Noted, moving on! In any case, you will cross the moat using nothing more than your own swimming skills; and be grouped into pairs depending on where you finish. And the reason why Johnny Krill is here, is because he will be paired with whoever finishes last!" Johnny says: "Which STILL makes me more relevant than General Barracuda ACTUALLY is!" General Barracuda angrily says: "Why don't you say that CLOSER to my FACE, if you're brave enough?!" Johnny SCOFFS, as if he can't believe General Barracuda honestly thinks that Johnny is THAT stupid, and Johnny says: "I'll PASS, Horatio!" Yakkity says: "OOH, BURN!!!!" (Confessional) General Barracuda says: "I HATE it when I get BURNED!" / Spongebob says: "Benjamin Franklin might have been one of America's FIRST geniuses, but he's definitely STILL one of the best! It's probably why HE'S on America's $100 bill!" / Marlene says: "It's sad to know Sniz is REALLY unpredictable, when he actually gives us a straight-forward challenge! It doesn't happen as often as I would like it to, if I'm being perfectly honest!" / Johnny scoffs, and he says: "It would serve BOTH Sniz and General Barracuda right if the contestant I get paired up with, WINS this challenge with MY help to assist him!" / Buhdeuce says: "Originality, and tradition. For a show that honors Legends Of The Hidden Temple, they REALLY haven't struck a better balance between the two!" / Dudley says: "Well, this challenge will DEFINITELY separate the winners from the contenders, one way or the other! Time to find out which one I am!" / Yakkity says: "Normally, I'm not a fan of roasting! But against people who genuinely DESERVE it? I can DEFINITELY make an exception!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Contestants, get into your positions! And to help motivate you, we'll play Oingo Boingo's 'Weird Science'!" Johnny says: "Wow! Danny Elfman's old band! We're REALLY attracting big names to this show!" General Barracuda groans, and he says: "Oh, STOP talking like you actually KNOW who Danny Elfman IS!" Johnny angrily says: "Well, I actually DO; so I honestly WON'T!!!!" And General Barracuda actually looks STUNNED in a rare moment of defeat! Marlene says: "Wow! Did Johnny just 'Wow Cthulu'?! He's better than I thought!" Sniz asks: "How ELSE would Johnny be able to get himself DRESSED in the morning?!" And Johnny groans at THAT insult! Sniz says: "In any case, everybody get ready! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / While Spongebob, Marlene, and Buhdeuce all swim rather well, being aquatic creatures; Dudley swims slower due to only knowing the Doggy paddle, while Yakkity is actually HINDERED by his new adult fur, soaking up so much water! / Oingo Boingo sings: "It's alive! It's alive! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions? Weird science! Plastic tubes, and pots and pans; bits and pieces and magic from the hand! We're making Weird science! Things I've never seen before, behind bolted doors, talent and imagination! Weird science! Not what teacher said to do; makin' dreams come true! Living tissue; warm flesh! Weird science! Plastic tubes, and pots and pans! Bits and pieces, bits and pieces! Bits of my creation, is it real?! It's my creation, I do not know! No hesitation, no heart of gold! Just flesh and blood, I do not know! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions! Ooh, weird! Weird science! Weird science! Magic and technology! Voodoo dolls and chants! Electricity! We're makin' Weird science! Fantasy and microchips, shooting from the hip! Something different! We're makin' Weird science! Pictures from a magazine! Diagrams and charts, mending broken hearts; and makin' Weird science! Something like a recipe! Bits and pieces! Bits and pieces! Bits of my creation, is it real?! It's my creation, I do not know! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions! Ooh, weird! Weird science! Weird science! Weird science!" / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay! The challenge is over! Marlene and Buhdeuce have once again come in first and second, so they will receive a Pendant of Life! Spongebob and Dudley will be paired together due to coming in 3rd and 4th! And Yakkity, you will be paired with Johnny Krill!" Dudley sighs in relief and says: "Phew! I really dodged a BULLET, there!" Johnny groans and says: "Ouch! Rub it in my FACE, why don't you?!" Spongebob says: "Don't give up YET, Yakkity! I believe in you!" Yakkity says: "I won't! It's not over, til it's over!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Everybody ELSE is counting Johnny Krill out, but I won't! Anything IS possible, as long as you BELIEVE it is!" / Johnny actually smiles, and he says: "At least SOMEBODY has some faith in me! So, I am going to deliver my BEST for him!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "We got to take a break, and dry everybody off! But don't go away! Because we'll be right back with some MORE Total Cartoon Legends!" / (Commercial Break) / After the commercials end, the contestants gather at the Steps of Knowledge! Johnny Krill looks around, and says: "Okay, I just want to get something out of the way. BESIDES Dudley and General Barracuda, does anyone ELSE here think I'm brain dead stupid?!" Marlene scoffs, and she says: "IMPOSSIBLE! Because to LITERALLY be 'Brain dead stupid', you'd have to be PHYSICALLY dead, FIRST!" Johnny scoffs, and he says: "Thanks for the vote of CONFIDENCE!" Marlene sputters, and she says: "Come on! I'm being SERIOUS! Could ANYONE who WAS stupid make it to the Team Merge during their FIRST time as a contestant?! I HIGHLY doubt it!" Spongebob says: "And just for the record, I've NEVER thought you WERE stupid!" Buhdeuce says: "Is there anyone you DO think of as stupid?" Spongebob says: "It's a rather small list. Master Coelaceanth, who's already DEAD; Invader Zim, and Dora due to the stunt she pulled this season!" Yakkity says: "In other words, the USUAL suspects!" And Johnny Krill plays a rim shot! Dudley says: "And ANOTHER thing; playing a RIM shot after such an OBVIOUS joke?! You would THINK you could come up with something a LITTLE more original than THAT!" Johnny sarcastically says: "Oh, I'm TERRIBLY sorry! And your GREAT original joke is WHERE?!" And Dudley just stares at Johnny in silence! Johnny says: "That's what I thought!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Technically speaking, there ARE a few people who I personally think of as being as CLOSE to 'Brain Dead Stupid' as humanly possible, but I can't say who they are; otherwise, I'd RISK starting a FLAME war on the Internet!" / Spongebob says: "As far as I'm concerned, anyone who KNOWS as many tricks as Johnny Krill does, has to have at least SOME form of knowledge! It might be considered a 'Crippling Overspecialization', but it's STILL a form of knowledge!" / Buhdeuce says: "So, there are only THREE characters Spongebob thinks of as being stupid. Well, mystery solved!" / Yakkity says: "Wow! I just got my first HECKLER! You usually can't become a great comedian without getting at least ONE of them!" / Dudley groans, and he says: "Oh, WHERE'S Keswick to come up with a snappy retort when you NEED one?!" / Johnny says: "I'm not sure whether I SHOULD feel flattered that not ALL the contestants think I'm stupid or not! I guess I'll split the difference and do the best I can to help Yakkity win this challenge, if at all possible." (End Confessional) Sniz finally arrives, and he says: "I trust everybody has had enough time to talk!" Buhdeuce says: "Personally, I don't know why you BOTHER to give us time to talk, especially NOW! There's only five of us left! SIX, if you count Johnny Krill!" Sniz says: "Well, for the purposes of this challenge, I do!" Johnny shrugs his shoulders, and he says: "Eh, I'll take what I can get!" General Barracuda says: "Anyways, you all know the purpose of the Steps of Knowledge. Listen to Olmec talk, answer his questions, get the LAST Immunity Pendant of Life by getting to the bottom and blah, the blah, the blah, the blah." Dudley says: "Um, you said 'Blah' FOUR times!" General Barracuda screams: "YOU'RE NOT LISTENING TO ME!!!!" Dudley winces in slight pain as he says: "YOW!!!! I never thought anything BESIDES a Dog Whistle could sound THAT loud!" Marlene sarcastically says: "TRY listening to Skipper bark orders through a megaphone. It's SUPER fun! By the way, I'm being sarcastic!" Yakkity sarcastically jokes: "Really? I COULDN'T tell!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "I'm just preparing in case I ever have to do a comedy roast of someone! I DO like to have as many options as I can!" / Marlene says: "OOH! It's not EVERYONE who can keep up with MY sarcasm! I am DEFINITELY keeping HIM around for another episode!" / Dudley says: "Seriously? General Barracuda SERIOUSLY didn't get hugged ENOUGH as a child! Bubble Bass' Mom, would you PLEASE hug General Barracuda a little more? Please and thank you in advance!" / General Barracuda says: "All my 'Blahs' are SUPER IMPORTANT!!!! Does NO ONE know how to infer things from the tone of someone's VOICE anymore?!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: In any case, BEFORE General Barracuda causes anyone ELSE to become deaf, let's listen to Olmec talk all about Benjamin Franklin's Lost Key!" Olmec says: "Born on January 17, 1706 in Boston, Massachusetts, in what was THEN British America, as the fifteenth of seventeen children to his father, Benjamin Franklin would eventually be celebrated as an American polymath! As a child, his family could only afford to send him to school for two years, so most of his education was self-taught by the books he read! At the age of just 12, he began an apprenticeship under his older brother James as a printer! In 1729, Benjamin Franklin became the publisher of a newspaper called The Pennsylvania Gazette, one of America's FIRST newspapers to come from within America itself, and he even established the first newspaper chain in America, from the region of New England, to the Carolina region! Under Benjamin Franklin's tenure, The Pennsylvania Gazette as a means for him to express his own satire and brand of wit; as he created a whole cast of fictitious people that he would use as an alias! In 1733, Benjamin Franklin began to publish the noted Poor Richard's Almanack, under the alias of Richard Saunders, and until 1758, he sold about 10,000 copies per year! In 1736, Benjamin Franklin established one of the first volunteer firefighting companies in America, in the city of Philadelphia; and in the same year, figured out how to make paper money that couldn't be counterfeited as easily, and wouldn't lose it's value as quickly! But it was on June 15, 1752, that Benjamin Franklin conducted his famous electricity experiment! The legend states, that when Benjamin Franklin flew a kite that had a metal key on it during a lightning storm; the metal key attracted the lightning, leading Benjamin Franklin to discover electricity, and the fact that it could produce positive AND negative charges! Eventually, Benjamin Franklin invented the world's first practical Lightning Rod! Benjamin Franklin was also active as a statesman, diplomat, and political philosopher! As a leading intellectual of his time, Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, as a drafter and signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, and the first United States Postmaster General! Benjamin Franklin passed away from Pleuritis at the age of 84, on April 17, 1790. But his metal key was lost to the mists of time, until it found it's way to the Temple! You must retrieve the metal key, and bring it back here!" Sniz says: "Thanks, Olmec! Where can the Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin be found?" Olmec says: "The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin can be found in the Mad Scientist's Lab!" Sniz says: "All right! You guys know the drill, I'll let you get right to it! Olmec, take it away!" Olmec asks: "When and where was Benjamin Franklin born?" Spongebob rings in, and Dudley answers: "On January 17, 1706 in British America in Boston, Massachusetts!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Dudley move down a step! Dudley says: "Good job, Spongebob! A couple of more answers like that, and this challenge is in the bag!" Olmec says: "True or False; Benjamin Franklin was the fifteenth of seventeen children by his father?" Yakkity rings in, and Johnny Krill says: "True!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Johnny and Yakkity move down a step! Yakkity says: "SEE?! I DO know something!" Marlene scoffs, and says: "Big DEAL!!!! You had a 50/50 CHANCE of getting THAT one correct! Call me when you make a REALLY impressive answer!" Olmec asks: "In addition to being self-taught, how many years of school education did Benjamin Franklin get?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene says: "Two!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Buhdeuce and Marlene move down a step! Buhdeuce asks: "Does Olmec ALWAYS asks questions in the chronological order of the information he talks about?" Sniz says: "Most of the time, he DOES!" Spongebob says: "Well, mystery solved!" Olmec asks: "At what age, did Benjamin Franklin become an Apprentice Printer, to his older brother James?" Spongebob rings in, and Dudley answers: "At the age of 12!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Dudley move down a step! Yakkity asks: "Is it JUST me, or are THESE questions TOO easy for OUR intellect?" General Barracuda says: "Well, to be FAIR; the contestants on the ORIGINAL Legends of The Hidden Temple were ALL about 10 to 12 years old! Leave it to COSMO to not take YOUR advanced intellect into consideration before this challenge!" Buhdeuce shrugs his shoulders and says: "Fair enough!" Olmec asks: "What newspaper did Benjamin Franklin become publisher of, in 1729?" Yakkity rings in, and Johnny Krill answers: "The Pennsylvania Gazette!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Yakkity and Johnny move down a step!" Marlene gawks in SHOCK and she says: "Okay, NOW I' starting to see his intellect!" General Barracuda sarcastically says: "Oh, SURE! Now that he no longer has to take orders from ME, NOW he finally decides to grow a BRAIN! Why does NOBODY ever respect me when I WANT them to?!" Spongebob says: "Well, I would SAY; but that would involve NOT being nice, and I don't like DOING that!" General Barracuda says: "I'll give you points for honesty!" Olmec asks: "In what year did Benjamin Franklin begin publishing Poor Richard's Almanack?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene answers: "In 1733!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Buhdeuce and Marlene move down a step! Sniz says: "Okay! This one's for the Immunity Pendant of Life!" Olmec asks: "On what day did Benjamin Franklin conduct his famous kite experiment?" Spongebob rings in and answers: "On June 15, 1752!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Dudley and Spongebob move down to the bottom! Sniz says: "Spongebob and Dudley did it! They get the last Immunity Pendant of the season! Which one of you wants to have it?" Dudley says: "Well, I know Spongebob will ONLY use it so he can nullify the vote he casts for himself, so I'll let him have it! That way, there's one LESS vote for ME!" Spongebob says: "Wow! Thank you, Dudley! That's really nice of you! I definitely have to think of something NICE to do for YOU in return!" Dudley says: "Just promise me you WON'T vote me off, and that will be enough for me!" Spongebob says: "Okay, it's a deal!" (Confessional) Dudley says: "If there's one thing I've learned from watching 'Spongebob Squarepants', NOT being nice to Spongebob tends to give you REALLY bad karma, while the INVERSE; being nice to Spongebob generally gets you GOOD karma, also tends to be true! Even if I don't make it to the Final Four, I'll probably get something REALLY good in exchange! Obviously, I have no idea of what it will be; but that makes it more FUN to guess at what it will end up being!" / Spongebob says: "I definitely owe Dudley a debt of gratitude! After today's challenge, unless I win at least two challenges in the remaining episodes; I won't be able to safely vote for myself! I wish I could safely SAY that Dudley was safe from giving ME the Immunity Pendant, but I highly doubt Marlene and Buhdeuce are going to reward HIM for HIS act of kindness!" / Johnny says: "I actually think it's a little too BAD the contestants only have to answer THREE questions correctly to win a challenge! I was willing to ace a HISTORY exam, if Sniz was willing to give me one!" / Marlene says: "I guess it's a GOOD thing Johnny got eliminated so early! Who KNEW that we could have possibly had to DEAL with a potential GENIUS?! There were ALREADY too many of them on THIS season as it WAS!" / Buhdeuce says: "Johnny Krill DEFINITELY has potential as a future Breadwinner if nothing else! Just think of how our dynamic possibilities could be improved with a third member in our group!" / Yakkity says: "It definitely goes to show you, that you can't judge a character's I.Q. level, by ONLY the way they look!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "Okay! It's time for the Challenge Arena! During the time that Benjamin Franklin published Poor Richard's Almanack, it sold about 10,000 copies per year, for about 25 years, making for about 250,000 copies total! For the Challenge Arena, your job will be to toss up to 250 copies into the basket at the other end of the Arena! One Issue copy will equal up to 1,000 issue copies! Whichever group delivers the most issue copies in three minutes will receive a Pendant of Life! If it's Marlene and Buhdeuce, they'll go on a Temple Run! Otherwise, we'll have to go to a tie-breaker question! And whoever wins the Temple Run, will get to go on a fabulous reward! General Barracuda, tell our contestants what they're competing for!" General Barracuda says: "In honor of Benjamin Franklin's services, for getting a Volunteer Firefighting Company in Philadelphia in 1736; our winner and a guest of their choice will get to go to Philadelphia, see all the historical sights, eat as many Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches as they want, and ring a replica of the Liberty Bell! Philadelphia! Ask NOT for whom the Liberty Bell tolls, it TOLLS for thee!" Dudley asks: "Who gets PAID to write all of General Barracuda's JOKES anyways?!" Sniz groans, and he says: "NO ONE, Dudley! He writes them ALL himself!" Marlene says: "Well, THAT explains a lot!" Yakkity says: "We ought to try to WIN that reward, Johnny! Do you have a good throwing arm?!" Johnny asks: "Did Benjamin Franklin establish one of the first newspaper chains in America? The answer to both questions is YES; yes, he did!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "It's too bad HE didn't get a chance to come up with a way to solve the Promethius Torch challenge at the BEGINNING of this half-season! Things could've turned out so DIFFERENTLY for his team!" / Johnny says: "The biggest reason I'm being smart NOW? Now that all the OTHER know-it-all geniuses aren't able to drown out MY voice, I don't need to PRETEND to be so stupid anymore!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Everybody get into positions! And to help motivate you, we'll be playing The Beatles hit song, 'Paperback Writer'! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / Unlike previous Challenge Arena's, no one contestant looks any better, or worse than any other! Even General Barracuda is having a HARD time actually keeping TRACK of the issue copies thrown! / The Beatles sing: "Paperback writer! Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look? It's based on a novel by a man named Lear, and I need a job; so I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! It's the dirty story of a dirty man, and his clinging wife doesn't understand; his son is working for the Daily Mail. It's a steady job, but he wants to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! Paperback writer! It's a thousand pages, give or take a few. I'll be writing more in a week or two. I can make it longer if you like the style. I can change it round, and I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! If you really like it you can have the rights! It could make a million for you overnight! If you must return it, you can send it here. But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! Paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer!" / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay! The challenge is over! It's time to find out who threw the most copies! Marlene and Buhdeuce threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 192 issue copies! Spongebob and Dudley threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 200 issue copies! Yakkity and Johnny threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 246, 249 issue copies! Yakkity and Johnny receive a Pendant of Life! That means Marlene and Buhdeuce must go up against Yakkity and Johnny to receive the final Pendant of Life in a Tie-Breaker question! General Barracuda, bring out the Gong Pedestal!" And General Barracuda rolls in the Gong Pedestal! Sniz says: "Okay! I'm going to ask you a question, and whoever gets it right, will receive the final Pendant of Life, and get to go on the Temple Run. Here is the question! True or False; Benjamin Franklin was a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence?" Johnny rings in, and he says: "True!" Sniz says: "That is correct! Ordinarily, I WOULD say that Yakkity and Johnny are going on a Temple Run!...Except for the fact that Johnny is not ACTUALLY a contestant! Johnny has a JOB to do as a Temple Guard! SO; Yakkity will get to choose someone of his choice to run with him!" Yakkity thinks about it, and he says: "I'm going to have to go with Spongebob!" Spongebob says: "Awesome! But why?" Yakkity says: "Well, I think you're the nicest guy BESIDES me still in the challenge! If I want to take anyone on a reward with ME, it's YOU!" Spongebob says: "Thank you, Yakkity!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "It's probably because I've never voted for him! I mean, I never WOULD if I knew for a FACT that I might not HAVE to! But since I don't, I won't make that promise since I don't know if I can keep it!" / Yakkity says: "Even if being a comedian will probably be my professional job, that doesn't mean that I still can't be nice to people!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Spongebob and Yakkity, will be going on a Temple Run! Everyone's fate will be decided after it is finished! Now, only the contestant who actually COMPLETES the Temple Run with the Legendary Lost Key will receive immunity! That being said, who's running first?" Spongebob says: "I'll run first! I already HAVE the Immunity Pendant of Life, so I don't need to win the Temple Run!" Sniz says: "Very well! Now, pay attention, as Map will reveal how to get through Olmec's Temple today! Take it away, Map!" Map says: "I'm on it, Sniz!" / And Map's Visual Information fills in, as Olmec tells about how to get through the Temple! / Olmec says: "First, you will board a British Sailing Vessel! Smash open the correct case of tea, and head through the Wind Tunnel Bridge! Pull on the right kite string, and head up into the Lost Library! Pull on the right book, and head down into the Mystery Museum! Push down on the correct statue bust, and head into The Fire Fighter's Room! Ring on the correct bell, and head into the Shrine of The Silver Monkey! Assemble the Monkey in the correct order, and head into The King's Chamber! Smash the Clay Pots of King George III, and slide down into the Abandoned Armory! Use the cannon to blow down the Stone Wall, and head into Murky Swamp! Pull on the right tree branch, and head into the Mad Scientist's Lab, where you can grab the Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin! Spin the wheel, and head into the Spiritual Chamber! Push on the correct buttons, than make your way back through the Pit! Climb through the Vine Caves, and back to the Temple Entrance! The choices are yours, and yours alone! Good luck!" Sniz says: "All right! You two know the drill! So get into positions! Olmec, lower your gate, please!" And Olmec groans as the gate is lowered! Sniz says: "Let's put three minutes on the clock! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / And as Spongebob takes off, Sniz narrates the action as he goes along! / Sniz says: "Spongebob boards the British Sailing Vessel, and a Temple Guard, right off the bat! Spongebob gives up his Pendant, now he's got to smash the right case of tea, and he's found it! Through the Wind Tunnel Bridge! He's got to pull on the right kite string, and he's done it! Up into the library! He's got to pull on the right book, and he's found it! Down into the Mystery Museum! Got to find the correct statue bust! Well, he's found a short-cut to the Wind Tunnel Bridge! And he's found the right statue bust! Into The Fire Fighter's Room! Another Temple Guard! Go, Yakkity, go! Onto the British Sailing Vessel, through the Wind Tunnel Bridge, through the short-cut into the Mystery Museum! Now he's in the Fire Fighter's Room! He's got to ring the correct bell! And he's done it! Into the Shrine of The Silver Monkey! It's Johnny Krill as a Temple Guard! Yakkity gives up his Pendant! Now he's got to assemble the Monkey! He's got the base and the stomach together! Now he's got to connect the head! And it connects! Now he's in the King's Chamber! He's got to smash the right clay pot of King George III, and he's found the key! Down he slides into the Abandoned Armory! He's got to use the cannon to blow down the Stone Wall, and he's done it! Into the Murky Swamp! Got to pull on the right tree branch, and he's found it! He's in the Mad Scientist's Lab! He's got the Lost Key, all the doors are open! Through the Spiritual Chamber, back through the Pit! Now he's got to climb up the Vine Caves, and Yakkity has made it out of the Temple with 15 seconds to spare! Yakkity, you get to take a guest of your choice on a reward to Philadelphia, who are you going to take?" Yakkity says: "Like I said, it's got to be Spongebob! At this point, I can't think of anyone better to take!" Sniz says: "All right! Well, first things first! We've got an Elimination Ceremony to attend to, and another contestant to eliminate by the end of tonight!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "I'm glad that if nothing else, Yakkity gets to go to the Final Four; like he always hoped he would! I know his Grandma is DEFINITELY proud of him, now!" / Yakkity sighs in contentment, and he says: "So, this is what it feels like to become a TRUE legend! I've never felt closer to my dad, than I do right now! I know he'd be as proud of me, as my Grandma is right now!" (End Confessional) It is night time, and the remaining contestants are at the Elimination Ceremony! Sniz says: "41 other contestants have been eliminated so far! That's an impressive streak for all FIVE of you! However, one of you will be joining the other eliminated contestants, when all is said and done! You all know the drill! Cast your vote for whoever you want! And this WILL be the last challenge you can play an Immunity Pendant, so I suggest that you USE it, Spongebob! And whoever doesn't receive a Chocolate Pendant of Life? They will be eliminated from the contest, and they can NEVER come back, EVER! With that being said, VOTE!!!!" And all of the contestants quickly make their choice, as to who they want to eliminate. Sniz says: "Now, it's time to--." Spongebob says: "Hold it! I AM going to put my Immunity Pendant to good use, so I WILL be playing it on myself, to nullify my own vote for myself!" Yakkity says: "Cool!" Sniz says: "The Immunity Pendant is real, that means all votes cast for Spongebob will NOT count! Now, it's time to reveal who is safe! Obviously, Spongebob and Yakkity! Next, Marlene!" Marlene says: "Yes!" And Buhdeuce and Dudley stare at each other, as they are the only ones left! Sniz says: "Contestants, this IS the Final Chocolate Pendant of Life!" And it just shifts back between Buhdeuce and Dudley staring at each other, as if WONDERING who will blink first! Sniz says: "And it goes to...Buhdeuce!" And Buhdeuce FINALLY blinks as if RELIEVED that he doesn't have to keep staring any longer! General Barracuda says: "Personally, I'd HONESTLY rather have Johnny Krill in the Final Four than BUHDEUCE!" Buhdeuce sarcastically says: "Let me guess, YOU hated MY show, to!" General Barracuda says: "Come ON!!!! 'Hate' is such a STRONG word! I'd say I have an, 'Intense Despising' of that show!" Marlene says: "Well, it hardly matters what YOU think! He's coming to the Final Four with me, whether YOU like it, or not!" General Barracuda says: "Well, I accept it! Doesn't mean I have to LIKE it!" Sniz says: "Just so long as you accept it, that's all that matters to us!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "I'm sorry you have to go, Dudley! I really thought you would get something, for all your trouble!" Dudley says: "Don't worry about it. After all, the day is STILL not over yet! Maybe something will come up!" Sniz says: "Maybe so, but you STILL have to get geared up and into the Mine Cart of Shame! Your stuff is already in there! And Johnny, PLEASE do stand back from the flames THIS time! Those things are hot enough to weld together ANYTHING, no matter HOW long ago it was broken!" So, Dudley puts on his helmet, and gets strapped into the Mine Cart of Shame. Sniz asks: "Are you ready, Olmec?" Olmec says: "Ready, Sniz!" Sniz says: "Than 3, 2, 1, BLAST-OFF!!!!" And Dudley rockets down the Mine Rails of Shame, and through the Portal in the Mine Shaft of Losers! Sniz says: "And than, there were FOUR!!!! We are FINALLY to the FINAL FOUR! Yakkity Yak, Marlene Otter, Spongebob Squarepants, and Buhdeuce! Four different contestants from four different shows! While they're guaranteed a minimum of $40 million, only one of them will get the grand prize of $44.44 million in cold, hard cash! There's no telling what the quarter-finals will bring, but it will be a thrilling ride! So buckle up, for the next episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "Racing for the gold, AND for the glory!" / Stinger: Spongebob and Yakkity are at a local Philadelphia restaurant, eating some of the finest Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches that they have ever eaten! Yakkity says: "This is definitely the GOOD life! Fine food, fine city, a fine trip, and a minimum pay-out of $40 million to look forward to! We are DEFINITELY living what is called the good life!" Spongebob asks: "Don't you feel the LEAST bit guilty eating what you are?" Yakkity says: "Of course not! I KNOW for a fact that this place sources ALL its food from Nearburg and Farburg, courtesy of meat trees grown by Johnny Meatseed!" Spongebob says: "Maybe THAT'S where we get our Krabby Patty Meat from, I've always wondered about that!" Randolph says: "Well, you're right about THAT!" Yakkity asks: "Are YOU the owner of this restaurant?" Randolph says: "Certainly, I am! I've got to make a living for Dog's sake, don't I?" Spongebob says: "PHEW! Than that means, that nothing bad is going to--." (VROOM!!!!) And a Mine Cart enters from a portal, into the restaurant, and exits out the front door! Yakkity asks: "Was THAT who I think it was?!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "I don't know WHY we bother to wonder, anymore!" And they rush outside, and they see Dudley's Mine Cart run RIGHT past the ACTUAL Liberty Bell, and the fire WELDS the crack back together, before Dudley's Mine Cart finally stops! Randolph says: "AMAZING!!!! You've FINALLY repaired the Liberty Bell, and I LOVE it! I'm quite wealthy, so I think I shall give you a reward! How does $30 million sound?" Dudley says: "It sounds AWESOME!!!!" Spongebob says: "WOW, Dudley! Karma really DID pay off for you!" Dudley says: "I think that as long as you're genuine about it, than Karma always DOES pay off in the end!" / Episode Notes: First time that someone who was partnered up with Johnny Krill, ends up winning the Challenge Arena, and getting to go on a Temple Run! Featured songs in this episode include Information Society's "I Want To Know What You're Thinking (Pure Energy)", Oingo Boingo's "Weird Science", and The Beatles "Paperback Writer". Final challenge of this season to use an Immunity Pendant. Dudley is eliminated in this episode, but the stinger reveals that because his Mine Cart welded the crack in the Liberty Bell, Randolph gives him a $30 million reward! Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity officially become the Final Four! Eliminated Contestants: 46. Kowalski. 45. Private. 44. Kaput. 43. Johnny Krill. 42. Haggis McHaggis. 41.

Yakkity Yak, ("Yakkity Yak"). / Personal Notes: Honestly speaking? I really had NO plans for HOW the Final Four was going to shape up this time, other than I wanted Spongebob Squarepants to get there. The rest of this season, was basically figuring out which contestants were going to be compelling enough to get to the Final Four WITH him! While Yakkity was quick to figure out (being the ONLY contestant who was ever IN an alliance with Bulma who didn't get eliminated BY her), Buhdeuce and Marlene were slower to catch on. Buhdeuce really only got his spark of incentive when he defeated Tigress, and he decided to keep the ball rolling, in order to prove EVERYONE who ever DOUBTED his ability to go all the way, SO wrong! Marlene was the last piece of the puzzle to fit in. Despite having eleven other contestants to choose from, I SOMEHOW wound up with Marlene being the BEST fit to go into the Final Four AGAIN! However, with three DIFFERENT contestants to go up against THIS time, things might definitely work out differently for her THIS time around! I hope you enjoyed reading this episode, as much as I did writing it! Enough said, true believers!
  8. MAN! It really is weird how time can get away from you when you're distracted by other things. But in any case, here is the second and final part of "The Legend Of The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin!" / After the commercials end, the contestants gather at the Steps of Knowledge! Johnny Krill looks around, and says: "Okay, I just want to get something out of the way. BESIDES Dudley and General Barracuda, does anyone ELSE here think I'm brain dead stupid?!" Marlene scoffs, and she says: "IMPOSSIBLE! Because to LITERALLY be 'Brain dead stupid', you'd have to be PHYSICALLY dead, FIRST!" Johnny scoffs, and he says: "Thanks for the vote of CONFIDENCE!" Marlene sputters, and she says: "Come on! I'm being SERIOUS! Could ANYONE who WAS stupid make it to the Team Merge during their FIRST time as a contestant?! I HIGHLY doubt it!" Spongebob says: "And just for the record, I've NEVER thought you WERE stupid!" Buhdeuce says: "Is there anyone you DO think of as stupid?" Spongebob says: "It's a rather small list. Master Coelaceanth, who's already DEAD; Invader Zim, and Dora due to the stunt she pulled this season!" Yakkity says: "In other words, the USUAL suspects!" And Johnny Krill plays a rim shot! Dudley says: "And ANOTHER thing; playing a RIM shot after such an OBVIOUS joke?! You would THINK you could come up with something a LITTLE more original than THAT!" Johnny sarcastically says: "Oh, I'm TERRIBLY sorry! And your GREAT original joke is WHERE?!" And Dudley just stares at Johnny in silence! Johnny says: "That's what I thought!" (Confessional) Marlene says: "Technically speaking, there ARE a few people who I personally think of as being as CLOSE to 'Brain Dead Stupid' as humanly possible, but I can't say who they are; otherwise, I'd RISK starting a FLAME war on the Internet!" / Spongebob says: "As far as I'm concerned, anyone who KNOWS as many tricks as Johnny Krill does, has to have at least SOME form of knowledge! It might be considered a 'Crippling Overspecialization', but it's STILL a form of knowledge!" / Buhdeuce says: "So, there are only THREE characters Spongebob thinks of as being stupid. Well, mystery solved!" / Yakkity says: "Wow! I just got my first HECKLER! You usually can't become a great comedian without getting at least ONE of them!" / Dudley groans, and he says: "Oh, WHERE'S Keswick to come up with a snappy retort when you NEED one?!" / Johnny says: "I'm not sure whether I SHOULD feel flattered that not ALL the contestants think I'm stupid or not! I guess I'll split the difference and do the best I can to help Yakkity win this challenge, if at all possible." (End Confessional) Sniz finally arrives, and he says: "I trust everybody has had enough time to talk!" Buhdeuce says: "Personally, I don't know why you BOTHER to give us time to talk, especially NOW! There's only five of us left! SIX, if you count Johnny Krill!" Sniz says: "Well, for the purposes of this challenge, I do!" Johnny shrugs his shoulders, and he says: "Eh, I'll take what I can get!" General Barracuda says: "Anyways, you all know the purpose of the Steps of Knowledge. Listen to Olmec talk, answer his questions, get the LAST Immunity Pendant of Life by getting to the bottom and blah, the blah, the blah, the blah." Dudley says: "Um, you said 'Blah' FOUR times!" General Barracuda screams: "YOU'RE NOT LISTENING TO ME!!!!" Dudley winces in slight pain as he says: "YOW!!!! I never thought anything BESIDES a Dog Whistle could sound THAT loud!" Marlene sarcastically says: "TRY listening to Skipper bark orders through a megaphone. It's SUPER fun! By the way, I'm being sarcastic!" Yakkity sarcastically jokes: "Really? I COULDN'T tell!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "I'm just preparing in case I ever have to do a comedy roast of someone! I DO like to have as many options as I can!" / Marlene says: "OOH! It's not EVERYONE who can keep up with MY sarcasm! I am DEFINITELY keeping HIM around for another episode!" / Dudley says: "Seriously? General Barracuda SERIOUSLY didn't get hugged ENOUGH as a child! Bubble Bass' Mom, would you PLEASE hug General Barracuda a little more? Please and thank you in advance!" / General Barracuda says: "All my 'Blahs' are SUPER IMPORTANT!!!! Does NO ONE know how to infer things from the tone of someone's VOICE anymore?!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: In any case, BEFORE General Barracuda causes anyone ELSE to become deaf, let's listen to Olmec talk all about Benjamin Franklin's Lost Key!" Olmec says: "Born on January 17, 1706 in Boston, Massachusetts, in what was THEN British America, as the fifteenth of seventeen children to his father, Benjamin Franklin would eventually be celebrated as an American polymath! As a child, his family could only afford to send him to school for two years, so most of his education was self-taught by the books he read! At the age of just 12, he began an apprenticeship under his older brother James as a printer! In 1729, Benjamin Franklin became the publisher of a newspaper called The Pennsylvania Gazette, one of America's FIRST newspapers to come from within America itself, and he even established the first newspaper chain in America, from the region of New England, to the Carolina region! Under Benjamin Franklin's tenure, The Pennsylvania Gazette as a means for him to express his own satire and brand of wit; as he created a whole cast of fictitious people that he would use as an alias! In 1733, Benjamin Franklin began to publish the noted Poor Richard's Almanack, under the alias of Richard Saunders, and until 1758, he sold about 10,000 copies per year! In 1736, Benjamin Franklin established one of the first volunteer firefighting companies in America, in the city of Philadelphia; and in the same year, figured out how to make paper money that couldn't be counterfeited as easily, and wouldn't lose it's value as quickly! But it was on June 15, 1752, that Benjamin Franklin conducted his famous electricity experiment! The legend states, that when Benjamin Franklin flew a kite that had a metal key on it during a lightning storm; the metal key attracted the lightning, leading Benjamin Franklin to discover electricity, and the fact that it could produce positive AND negative charges! Eventually, Benjamin Franklin invented the world's first practical Lightning Rod! Benjamin Franklin was also active as a statesman, diplomat, and political philosopher! As a leading intellectual of his time, Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, as a drafter and signer of the U.S. Declaration of Independence, and the first United States Postmaster General! Benjamin Franklin passed away from Pleuritis at the age of 84, on April 17, 1790. But his metal key was lost to the mists of time, until it found it's way to the Temple! You must retrieve the metal key, and bring it back here!" Sniz says: "Thanks, Olmec! Where can the Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin be found?" Olmec says: "The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin can be found in the Mad Scientist's Lab!" Sniz says: "All right! You guys know the drill, I'll let you get right to it! Olmec, take it away!" Olmec asks: "When and where was Benjamin Franklin born?" Spongebob rings in, and Dudley answers: "On January 17, 1706 in British America in Boston, Massachusetts!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Dudley move down a step! Dudley says: "Good job, Spongebob! A couple of more answers like that, and this challenge is in the bag!" Olmec says: "True or False; Benjamin Franklin was the fifteenth of seventeen children by his father?" Yakkity rings in, and Johnny Krill says: "True!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Johnny and Yakkity move down a step! Yakkity says: "SEE?! I DO know something!" Marlene scoffs, and says: "Big DEAL!!!! You had a 50/50 CHANCE of getting THAT one correct! Call me when you make a REALLY impressive answer!" Olmec asks: "In addition to being self-taught, how many years of school education did Benjamin Franklin get?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene says: "Two!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Buhdeuce and Marlene move down a step! Buhdeuce asks: "Does Olmec ALWAYS asks questions in the chronological order of the information he talks about?" Sniz says: "Most of the time, he DOES!" Spongebob says: "Well, mystery solved!" Olmec asks: "At what age, did Benjamin Franklin become an Apprentice Printer, to his older brother James?" Spongebob rings in, and Dudley answers: "At the age of 12!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Dudley move down a step! Yakkity asks: "Is it JUST me, or are THESE questions TOO easy for OUR intellect?" General Barracuda says: "Well, to be FAIR; the contestants on the ORIGINAL Legends of The Hidden Temple were ALL about 10 to 12 years old! Leave it to COSMO to not take YOUR advanced intellect into consideration before this challenge!" Buhdeuce shrugs his shoulders and says: "Fair enough!" Olmec asks: "What newspaper did Benjamin Franklin become publisher of, in 1729?" Yakkity rings in, and Johnny Krill answers: "The Pennsylvania Gazette!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Yakkity and Johnny move down a step!" Marlene gawks in SHOCK and she says: "Okay, NOW I' starting to see his intellect!" General Barracuda sarcastically says: "Oh, SURE! Now that he no longer has to take orders from ME, NOW he finally decides to grow a BRAIN! Why does NOBODY ever respect me when I WANT them to?!" Spongebob says: "Well, I would SAY; but that would involve NOT being nice, and I don't like DOING that!" General Barracuda says: "I'll give you points for honesty!" Olmec asks: "In what year did Benjamin Franklin begin publishing Poor Richard's Almanack?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene answers: "In 1733!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Buhdeuce and Marlene move down a step! Sniz says: "Okay! This one's for the Immunity Pendant of Life!" Olmec asks: "On what day did Benjamin Franklin conduct his famous kite experiment?" Spongebob rings in and answers: "On June 15, 1752!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Dudley and Spongebob move down to the bottom! Sniz says: "Spongebob and Dudley did it! They get the last Immunity Pendant of the season! Which one of you wants to have it?" Dudley says: "Well, I know Spongebob will ONLY use it so he can nullify the vote he casts for himself, so I'll let him have it! That way, there's one LESS vote for ME!" Spongebob says: "Wow! Thank you, Dudley! That's really nice of you! I definitely have to think of something NICE to do for YOU in return!" Dudley says: "Just promise me you WON'T vote me off, and that will be enough for me!" Spongebob says: "Okay, it's a deal!" (Confessional) Dudley says: "If there's one thing I've learned from watching 'Spongebob Squarepants', NOT being nice to Spongebob tends to give you REALLY bad karma, while the INVERSE; being nice to Spongebob generally gets you GOOD karma, also tends to be true! Even if I don't make it to the Final Four, I'll probably get something REALLY good in exchange! Obviously, I have no idea of what it will be; but that makes it more FUN to guess at what it will end up being!" / Spongebob says: "I definitely owe Dudley a debt of gratitude! After today's challenge, unless I win at least two challenges in the remaining episodes; I won't be able to safely vote for myself! I wish I could safely SAY that Dudley was safe from giving ME the Immunity Pendant, but I highly doubt Marlene and Buhdeuce are going to reward HIM for HIS act of kindness!" / Johnny says: "I actually think it's a little too BAD the contestants only have to answer THREE questions correctly to win a challenge! I was willing to ace a HISTORY exam, if Sniz was willing to give me one!" / Marlene says: "I guess it's a GOOD thing Johnny got eliminated so early! Who KNEW that we could have possibly had to DEAL with a potential GENIUS?! There were ALREADY too many of them on THIS season as it WAS!" / Buhdeuce says: "Johnny Krill DEFINITELY has potential as a future Breadwinner if nothing else! Just think of how our dynamic possibilities could be improved with a third member in our group!" / Yakkity says: "It definitely goes to show you, that you can't judge a character's I.Q. level, by ONLY the way they look!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "Okay! It's time for the Challenge Arena! During the time that Benjamin Franklin published Poor Richard's Almanack, it sold about 10,000 copies per year, for about 25 years, making for about 250,000 copies total! For the Challenge Arena, your job will be to toss up to 250 copies into the basket at the other end of the Arena! One Issue copy will equal up to 1,000 issue copies! Whichever group delivers the most issue copies in three minutes will receive a Pendant of Life! If it's Marlene and Buhdeuce, they'll go on a Temple Run! Otherwise, we'll have to go to a tie-breaker question! And whoever wins the Temple Run, will get to go on a fabulous reward! General Barracuda, tell our contestants what they're competing for!" General Barracuda says: "In honor of Benjamin Franklin's services, for getting a Volunteer Firefighting Company in Philadelphia in 1736; our winner and a guest of their choice will get to go to Philadelphia, see all the historical sights, eat as many Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches as they want, and ring a replica of the Liberty Bell! Philadelphia! Ask NOT for whom the Liberty Bell tolls, it TOLLS for thee!" Dudley asks: "Who gets PAID to write all of General Barracuda's JOKES anyways?!" Sniz groans, and he says: "NO ONE, Dudley! He writes them ALL himself!" Marlene says: "Well, THAT explains a lot!" Yakkity says: "We ought to try to WIN that reward, Johnny! Do you have a good throwing arm?!" Johnny asks: "Did Benjamin Franklin establish one of the first newspaper chains in America? The answer to both questions is YES; yes, he did!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "It's too bad HE didn't get a chance to come up with a way to solve the Promethius Torch challenge at the BEGINNING of this half-season! Things could've turned out so DIFFERENTLY for his team!" / Johnny says: "The biggest reason I'm being smart NOW? Now that all the OTHER know-it-all geniuses aren't able to drown out MY voice, I don't need to PRETEND to be so stupid anymore!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Everybody get into positions! And to help motivate you, we'll be playing The Beatles hit song, 'Paperback Writer'! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / Unlike previous Challenge Arena's, no one contestant looks any better, or worse than any other! Even General Barracuda is having a HARD time actually keeping TRACK of the issue copies thrown! / The Beatles sing: "Paperback writer! Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book? It took me years to write, will you take a look? It's based on a novel by a man named Lear, and I need a job; so I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! It's the dirty story of a dirty man, and his clinging wife doesn't understand; his son is working for the Daily Mail. It's a steady job, but he wants to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! Paperback writer! It's a thousand pages, give or take a few. I'll be writing more in a week or two. I can make it longer if you like the style. I can change it round, and I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! If you really like it you can have the rights! It could make a million for you overnight! If you must return it, you can send it here. But I need a break and I want to be a paperback writer. Paperback writer! Paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer! Paperback writer, paperback writer!" / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay! The challenge is over! It's time to find out who threw the most copies! Marlene and Buhdeuce threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 192 issue copies! Spongebob and Dudley threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 200 issue copies! Yakkity and Johnny threw 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 182, 246, 249 issue copies! Yakkity and Johnny receive a Pendant of Life! That means Marlene and Buhdeuce must go up against Yakkity and Johnny to receive the final Pendant of Life in a Tie-Breaker question! General Barracuda, bring out the Gong Pedestal!" And General Barracuda rolls in the Gong Pedestal! Sniz says: "Okay! I'm going to ask you a question, and whoever gets it right, will receive the final Pendant of Life, and get to go on the Temple Run. Here is the question! True or False; Benjamin Franklin was a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence?" Johnny rings in, and he says: "True!" Sniz says: "That is correct! Ordinarily, I WOULD say that Yakkity and Johnny are going on a Temple Run!...Except for the fact that Johnny is not ACTUALLY a contestant! Johnny has a JOB to do as a Temple Guard! SO; Yakkity will get to choose someone of his choice to run with him!" Yakkity thinks about it, and he says: "I'm going to have to go with Spongebob!" Spongebob says: "Awesome! But why?" Yakkity says: "Well, I think you're the nicest guy BESIDES me still in the challenge! If I want to take anyone on a reward with ME, it's YOU!" Spongebob says: "Thank you, Yakkity!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "It's probably because I've never voted for him! I mean, I never WOULD if I knew for a FACT that I might not HAVE to! But since I don't, I won't make that promise since I don't know if I can keep it!" / Yakkity says: "Even if being a comedian will probably be my professional job, that doesn't mean that I still can't be nice to people!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Spongebob and Yakkity, will be going on a Temple Run! Everyone's fate will be decided after it is finished! Now, only the contestant who actually COMPLETES the Temple Run with the Legendary Lost Key will receive immunity! That being said, who's running first?" Spongebob says: "I'll run first! I already HAVE the Immunity Pendant of Life, so I don't need to win the Temple Run!" Sniz says: "Very well! Now, pay attention, as Map will reveal how to get through Olmec's Temple today! Take it away, Map!" Map says: "I'm on it, Sniz!" / And Map's Visual Information fills in, as Olmec tells about how to get through the Temple! / Olmec says: "First, you will board a British Sailing Vessel! Smash open the correct case of tea, and head through the Wind Tunnel Bridge! Pull on the right kite string, and head up into the Lost Library! Pull on the right book, and head down into the Mystery Museum! Push down on the correct statue bust, and head into The Fire Fighter's Room! Ring on the correct bell, and head into the Shrine of The Silver Monkey! Assemble the Monkey in the correct order, and head into The King's Chamber! Smash the Clay Pots of King George III, and slide down into the Abandoned Armory! Use the cannon to blow down the Stone Wall, and head into Murky Swamp! Pull on the right tree branch, and head into the Mad Scientist's Lab, where you can grab the Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin! Spin the wheel, and head into the Spiritual Chamber! Push on the correct buttons, than make your way back through the Pit! Climb through the Vine Caves, and back to the Temple Entrance! The choices are yours, and yours alone! Good luck!" Sniz says: "All right! You two know the drill! So get into positions! Olmec, lower your gate, please!" And Olmec groans as the gate is lowered! Sniz says: "Let's put three minutes on the clock! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / And as Spongebob takes off, Sniz narrates the action as he goes along! / Sniz says: "Spongebob boards the British Sailing Vessel, and a Temple Guard, right off the bat! Spongebob gives up his Pendant, now he's got to smash the right case of tea, and he's found it! Through the Wind Tunnel Bridge! He's got to pull on the right kite string, and he's done it! Up into the library! He's got to pull on the right book, and he's found it! Down into the Mystery Museum! Got to find the correct statue bust! Well, he's found a short-cut to the Wind Tunnel Bridge! And he's found the right statue bust! Into The Fire Fighter's Room! Another Temple Guard! Go, Yakkity, go! Onto the British Sailing Vessel, through the Wind Tunnel Bridge, through the short-cut into the Mystery Museum! Now he's in the Fire Fighter's Room! He's got to ring the correct bell! And he's done it! Into the Shrine of The Silver Monkey! It's Johnny Krill as a Temple Guard! Yakkity gives up his Pendant! Now he's got to assemble the Monkey! He's got the base and the stomach together! Now he's got to connect the head! And it connects! Now he's in the King's Chamber! He's got to smash the right clay pot of King George III, and he's found the key! Down he slides into the Abandoned Armory! He's got to use the cannon to blow down the Stone Wall, and he's done it! Into the Murky Swamp! Got to pull on the right tree branch, and he's found it! He's in the Mad Scientist's Lab! He's got the Lost Key, all the doors are open! Through the Spiritual Chamber, back through the Pit! Now he's got to climb up the Vine Caves, and Yakkity has made it out of the Temple with 15 seconds to spare! Yakkity, you get to take a guest of your choice on a reward to Philadelphia, who are you going to take?" Yakkity says: "Like I said, it's got to be Spongebob! At this point, I can't think of anyone better to take!" Sniz says: "All right! Well, first things first! We've got an Elimination Ceremony to attend to, and another contestant to eliminate by the end of tonight!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "I'm glad that if nothing else, Yakkity gets to go to the Final Four; like he always hoped he would! I know his Grandma is DEFINITELY proud of him, now!" / Yakkity sighs in contentment, and he says: "So, this is what it feels like to become a TRUE legend! I've never felt closer to my dad, than I do right now! I know he'd be as proud of me, as my Grandma is right now!" (End Confessional) It is night time, and the remaining contestants are at the Elimination Ceremony! Sniz says: "41 other contestants have been eliminated so far! That's an impressive streak for all FIVE of you! However, one of you will be joining the other eliminated contestants, when all is said and done! You all know the drill! Cast your vote for whoever you want! And this WILL be the last challenge you can play an Immunity Pendant, so I suggest that you USE it, Spongebob! And whoever doesn't receive a Chocolate Pendant of Life? They will be eliminated from the contest, and they can NEVER come back, EVER! With that being said, VOTE!!!!" And all of the contestants quickly make their choice, as to who they want to eliminate. Sniz says: "Now, it's time to--." Spongebob says: "Hold it! I AM going to put my Immunity Pendant to good use, so I WILL be playing it on myself, to nullify my own vote for myself!" Yakkity says: "Cool!" Sniz says: "The Immunity Pendant is real, that means all votes cast for Spongebob will NOT count! Now, it's time to reveal who is safe! Obviously, Spongebob and Yakkity! Next, Marlene!" Marlene says: "Yes!" And Buhdeuce and Dudley stare at each other, as they are the only ones left! Sniz says: "Contestants, this IS the Final Chocolate Pendant of Life!" And it just shifts back between Buhdeuce and Dudley staring at each other, as if WONDERING who will blink first! Sniz says: "And it goes to...Buhdeuce!" And Buhdeuce FINALLY blinks as if RELIEVED that he doesn't have to keep staring any longer! General Barracuda says: "Personally, I'd HONESTLY rather have Johnny Krill in the Final Four than BUHDEUCE!" Buhdeuce sarcastically says: "Let me guess, YOU hated MY show, to!" General Barracuda says: "Come ON!!!! 'Hate' is such a STRONG word! I'd say I have an, 'Intense Despising' of that show!" Marlene says: "Well, it hardly matters what YOU think! He's coming to the Final Four with me, whether YOU like it, or not!" General Barracuda says: "Well, I accept it! Doesn't mean I have to LIKE it!" Sniz says: "Just so long as you accept it, that's all that matters to us!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "I'm sorry you have to go, Dudley! I really thought you would get something, for all your trouble!" Dudley says: "Don't worry about it. After all, the day is STILL not over yet! Maybe something will come up!" Sniz says: "Maybe so, but you STILL have to get geared up and into the Mine Cart of Shame! Your stuff is already in there! And Johnny, PLEASE do stand back from the flames THIS time! Those things are hot enough to weld together ANYTHING, no matter HOW long ago it was broken!" So, Dudley puts on his helmet, and gets strapped into the Mine Cart of Shame. Sniz asks: "Are you ready, Olmec?" Olmec says: "Ready, Sniz!" Sniz says: "Than 3, 2, 1, BLAST-OFF!!!!" And Dudley rockets down the Mine Rails of Shame, and through the Portal in the Mine Shaft of Losers! Sniz says: "And than, there were FOUR!!!! We are FINALLY to the FINAL FOUR! Yakkity Yak, Marlene Otter, Spongebob Squarepants, and Buhdeuce! Four different contestants from four different shows! While they're guaranteed a minimum of $40 million, only one of them will get the grand prize of $44.44 million in cold, hard cash! There's no telling what the quarter-finals will bring, but it will be a thrilling ride! So buckle up, for the next episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "Racing for the gold, AND for the glory!" / Stinger: Spongebob and Yakkity are at a local Philadelphia restaurant, eating some of the finest Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches that they have ever eaten! Yakkity says: "This is definitely the GOOD life! Fine food, fine city, a fine trip, and a minimum pay-out of $40 million to look forward to! We are DEFINITELY living what is called the good life!" Spongebob asks: "Don't you feel the LEAST bit guilty eating what you are?" Yakkity says: "Of course not! I KNOW for a fact that this place sources ALL its food from Nearburg and Farburg, courtesy of meat trees grown by Johnny Meatseed!" Spongebob says: "Maybe THAT'S where we get our Krabby Patty Meat from, I've always wondered about that!" Randolph says: "Well, you're right about THAT!" Yakkity asks: "Are YOU the owner of this restaurant?" Randolph says: "Certainly, I am! I've got to make a living for Dog's sake, don't I?" Spongebob says: "PHEW! Than that means, that nothing bad is going to--." (VROOM!!!!) And a Mine Cart enters from a portal, into the restaurant, and exits out the front door! Yakkity asks: "Was THAT who I think it was?!" Spongebob sighs, and says: "I don't know WHY we bother to wonder, anymore!" And they rush outside, and they see Dudley's Mine Cart run RIGHT past the ACTUAL Liberty Bell, and the fire WELDS the crack back together, before Dudley's Mine Cart finally stops! Randolph says: "AMAZING!!!! You've FINALLY repaired the Liberty Bell, and I LOVE it! I'm quite wealthy, so I think I shall give you a reward! How does $30 million sound?" Dudley says: "It sounds AWESOME!!!!" Spongebob says: "WOW, Dudley! Karma really DID pay off for you!" Dudley says: "I think that as long as you're genuine about it, than Karma always DOES pay off in the end!" / Episode Notes: First time that someone who was partnered up with Johnny Krill, ends up winning the Challenge Arena, and getting to go on a Temple Run! Featured songs in this episode include Information Society's "I Want To Know What You're Thinking (Pure Energy)", Oingo Boingo's "Weird Science", and The Beatles "Paperback Writer". Final challenge of this season to use an Immunity Pendant. Dudley is eliminated in this episode, but the stinger reveals that because his Mine Cart welded the crack in the Liberty Bell, Randolph gives him a $30 million reward! Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, and Yakkity officially become the Final Four! Eliminated Contestants: 46. Kowalski. 45. Private. 44. Kaput. 43. Johnny Krill. 42. Haggis McHaggis. 41. Monster Krumholtz. 40. Aang. 39. Verminious J. Snaptrap. 38. Darwin. 37. Heffer Wolfe. 36. Judy Funny. 35. Sway-Sway. 34. Invader Zim. 33. Gonard. 32. Blonda. 31. Squidward Tentacles. 30.

Yakkity Yak, ("Yakkity Yak"). / Personal Notes: Honestly speaking? I really had NO plans for HOW the Final Four was going to shape up this time, other than I wanted Spongebob Squarepants to get there. The rest of this season, was basically figuring out which contestants were going to be compelling enough to get to the Final Four WITH him! While Yakkity was quick to figure out (being the ONLY contestant who was ever IN an alliance with Bulma who didn't get eliminated BY her), Buhdeuce and Marlene were slower to catch on. Buhdeuce really only got his spark of incentive when he defeated Tigress, and he decided to keep the ball rolling, in order to prove EVERYONE who ever DOUBTED his ability to go all the way, SO wrong! Marlene was the last piece of the puzzle to fit in. Despite having eleven other contestants to choose from, I SOMEHOW wound up with Marlene being the BEST fit to go into the Final Four AGAIN! However, with three DIFFERENT contestants to go up against THIS time, things might definitely work out differently for her THIS time around! I hope you enjoyed reading this episode, as much as I did writing it! Enough said, true believers!
  9. I saw the new Idris Elba movie, "Beast". A pretty good, thriller movie about trying to survive a killer lion in Africa, if you're into that sort of thing.
  10. The FBI has OFFICIALLY justified their existence in America!
  11. So, we're FINALLY going to get an episode that revolves around Craig Mammalton (about TIME, to!) And it will be interesting to see whether they use Patrick's Dad from "Spongebob Squarepants", Patrick's Dad from "The Patrick Star Show", OR Patrick's FAKE Dad Marty from "I'm With Stupid". A lot of the other episodes seem interesting, to. I'll watch them when I get the opportunity to do so. Enough said, true believers!
  12. I've seen "Jurassic World Dominion; Elvis; Where The Crawdads Sing; Rita And Mack;" and "Easter Sunday" since I have last posted on here. I thought they were all good movies in their own ways.
  13. I was KIND of being sarcastic about being afraid...I do that!
  14. For this episode, we will be looking back to one of the first real geniuses who was born and lived in America! Find out who it is on today's episode of "Total Cartoon Legends!" / Sniz is looking at some of the previous, uncollected Legends from the half-season, and he says: "Last time, on Total Cartoon Legends; we were down to the Final Six! Spongebob and Yakkity both realized, their best chance for making it to the Final Four, was to make an alliance together! I never saw THAT coming! Meanwhile, because Po previously discovered that Yakkity was competing in order to make Yakkity's Grandma proud of him, was a far more noble goal than what Po was trying to accomplish; Po decided to sabotage his own performance during the challenge, by racking up penalty votes for himself! Interesting strategy, Po! In the end, Spongebob and Yakkity won Immunity and Reward! Po, with his Penalty Votes, ended up being the one to be eliminated! Now, we are down to the Final Five! Dudley, Marlene, Yakkity, Spongebob, and Buhdeuce! They have made it past 41 other contestants, but only FOUR of them will get to go to the Final Four! See how that works? In any ways, prepare yourselves; for a TRULY electrifying episode experience, of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "And remember; Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise!" / Instead of the normal show open, it shows the remaining contestants in a montage of their moments from their own show, and on the "Total Cartoon" show, performing antics requiring a lot of energy, and often lightning during their antics; all to the tune of the Information Society's hit song, "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)". / The Information Society sings: "It's worked so far, but we're not out yet. I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! Pure energy! Pure energy! Here I am in silence, looking 'round without a clue. I find myself alone again. All alone with you! I can see behind your eyes, the things that I don't know. If you hide away from me, how can our love grow? I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! I know I could break you down, but what good would it do? I could surely never know, that what you say is true! Here I am in silence, it's a game I have to play. You and I in silence, with nothing else to say! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! (Instrumental Break) Pure energy! Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! Destruction, Pure energy! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind! I wanna know what you're thinking! There are some things you can't hide! I wanna know what you're feeling! Tell me what's on your mind!" / And the song and montage ends! / "The Legend Of The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin!" / It is night-time, and Spongebob and Yakkity have returned from their vacation reward, into their hotel room. Yakkity says: "I'm so GLAD that my Grandma approves of you as a friend!" Spongebob says: "I'm happy that she THINKS of me as your friend! And...I'm sorry that I had to hear her CALLING you her 'BOUBALA'!" Yakkity says: "Oh, don't worry about it! I'm not the kind of guy who's ASHAMED of displays of affection like SOME people are! I actually wish more people were more accepting of WANTING affection! There's nothing wrong with being love and accepting love, as long as that love is healthy, and reciprocated by all parties involved!" Spongebob says: "I know how THAT feels! It took me a LONG time to realize how not EVERYONE is going to like you or me, the way you and I WANT them to! In fact, it's pretty FOOLISH to think it ever WILL happen! People are going to think the way they WANT to think! And as long as their points of view don't HURT anyone else physically, mentally, or emotionally; it's perfectly FINE for them to think the way they want! I'm just glad that you have such a good relationship with your Grandma! It's not something that everyone is able to have!" Yakkity says: "Yeah, and I know there probably WILL come a day when my Grandma...won't be around anymore! That's why I came onto this show NOW, so I could make her proud of me while she IS around!" Spongebob says: "Truthfully, I think you already have; just by being the kind, caring, nice yak that you are, that you always have been, and probably always WILL be!" Yakkity feels a WARM feeling inside of him, and Yakkity says: "Spongebob, you definitely HAVE come quite a ways from needing EVERYBODY to love you, to realizing that it's more important to love those who APPRECIATE and reciprocate YOUR love back to you! And I just want you to know, I appreciate the genuine kindness that you have displayed to me! And I plan to always appreciate your kindness, by displaying it to others!" Spongebob says: "I think that might be one of the BEST things we can do for the world! Be KIND to others, INSPIRE others with your kindness! And even if it DOESN'T affect EVERYONE, those who ARE affected by it, will SHARE the kindness with potentially EVERYONE they know!" Yakkity sighs in contentment, and he says: "Yeah, that WOULD be a pretty great thing to do, and I WILL do as often as I can!" (Confessional) Yakkity is sweating, and he says: "Spongebob DEFINITELY makes a guy feel appreciated, even for things that he once saw as mundane! PHEW!!!! I don't know why, but I feel all SWEATY! It's probably my button-up fur!" He ducks out of the camera frame, and he gasps: "My ADULT FUR! It came in! It FINALLY came in!" Yakkity comes back INTO frame, only now his fur no longer has buttons on it! Yakkity sighs, and he says: "All these years, all I had to remember of my father, was the fur pelt he left behind! My Grandma made it into a sweater for me, until the day my adult fur FINALLY grew in! I guess, all this emotional and mental growth that I've experienced, FINALLY made my adult fur grow in! At long last, I'm a REAL yak!" Yakkity looks at his old button-up fur, and he says: "No sense letting it go to waste, I think I'll keep it. It MIGHT come in handy someday!" / Spongebob says: "I believe Yakkity has ALWAYS had the potential to become a legend! I guess he just needed the confidence of someone like ME, to help him realize that potential was always inside of him! Yes, approval from others is always nice; but when all is said and done, you ultimately need to believe in YOURSELF, if you want to make your dreams come true!" (End Confessional) It is early morning, and Marlene and Buhdeuce are in the hotel lobby, discussing their next move! Buhdeuce excitedly says: "Can you believe it, Marlene?! We're almost at the Finish Line!" Marlene says: "Trust me! I've been anticipating this moment for quite a while now! However, this is the EXACT moment where we CANNOT let our guard down! After all, Kowalski; Gonard; Tigress; Otto; Zarbon; Jenny; Bulma; Po; Spongebob; and even I have tripped by being TOTALLY overconfident of our OWN skills before blowing it where it mattered the most!" Buhdeuce says: "And that's why it's a good thing that I'm teamed up with YOU; because you have personal experience of HAVING gone through such a thing before hand! Me? Not so much!" Marlene says: "Give yourself SOME credit! You've done a LOT better THIS season than you did in season three! That ALONE is a testament to how much you've GROWN as an individual! The end IS in sight! And that's why it's more important than EVER, to keep your mind focused, and follow through!" Buhdeuce says: "Keep my mind focused, and follow through! THAT Marlene, I can DEFINITELY do!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "I feel as though I've been waiting for the LONGEST time, to prove to everyone else that I'm MORE than just a pudgy duck with a love for bread and hanging with his best bro, Sway-Sway! Despite all my skills, I NEVER felt as though I got to express ALL of my skills to the best of my ability on my own show! And now, I finally feel as though I'm FINALLY breaking through the stigma of my own show! I feel almost FREE of my OLD image! It's getting to the Final Three, that will make me feel as though I've completely SHATTERED the old image that no longer suits my needs!" / Marlene says: "Initially, partnering with Buhdeuce WAS kind of a convenience for me! But now that I've actually SPENT some time with him and got to know him, he really IS a whole lot better than the show he WAS on, portrayed him as! In a way, he's kind of like MY 'Spear Counterpart', in that he's actually BEEN that skilled and capable all along, but never got the chance to properly express it! The hard part is, knowing that I'll eventually have to compete against him in the Final Three if it comes to that! But...I guess I'll cross THAT bridge if/and when I come to it, and NOT before!" (End Confessional) It is breakfast time, and the contestants are eating their breakfast! Dudley turns to Johnny Krill, and Dudley asks: "Johnny, do you have ANY idea how all the other contestants managed to get themselves into an alliance that DIDN'T involve ME?!" Johnny asks: "How would I honestly know? I didn't even last long enough as a contestant this season to even really GET into an Alliance!" Dudley says: "Well, I thought that perhaps, you could give me an HONEST outside out-look of the situation!" Johnny says: "Honestly, even if I did HAVE that kind of knowledge; I'm not allowed to share it with you. After all, as long as I'm employed by Sniz; I'm really NOT allowed to share knowledge that would give you an unfair advantage! Although, it's DEFINITELY a case of 'I Would Say It If I COULD Say It'!" Dudley says: "And I'm even surprised that you know the proper context of THAT writing technique!" (Confessional) Johnny groans, and he says: "Why is it, that whenever I HAPPEN to know something, it always comes as a gigantic SURPRISE to everyone?! A little funny the FIRST time, but the joke's REALLY old now!" / Dudley says: "I guess this is probably how Chameleon felt when HE had to go into the Final Five! I mean, I did get to support him; even if it didn't last long, but he STILL needed to get there on his own! But I didn't sign up with T.U.F.F. just to give up NOW! I will play until I can't play anymore! That is the creed, of a TRUE contender!" (End Confessional) General Barracuda comes in with the Gong, and BANGS it as loud as he can! Marlene sarcastically asks: "Could you bang that a little LOUDER? I think there were like two people in CHINA who couldn't HEAR you!" General Barracuda chuckles, and he says: "Don't tempt me! In any case, I came here to announce that Po WAS eliminated at the last Elimination Ceremony, in CASE you thought that was JUST a dream!" Yakkity says: "Trust me, we DIDN'T!" General Barracuda says: "Be that as it may, Sniz has declared that breakfast time is over, and your presence is required at the Moat, INCLUDING Johnny Krill's! That is all!" Johnny asks: "Why would MY presence be needed?" Spongebob says: "The same reason YOUR presence was needed in the episode, 'Extreme Spots'; would be MY best guess!" Johnny says: "I sure hope so! I could DEFINITELY use a major boost in my popularity!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Don't get me wrong! I definitely LIKE being a nice guy, but even a yak like me CAN have his limits, when it comes to General Barracuda's loud GONG banging!" / Marlene says: "Honestly? The only thing I can think of that's LOUDER than General Barracuda's loud Gong banging, is the sound of an F-18 jet fighter flying WAY too close to your home! Not a pleasant sound, I might add!" / Spongebob says: "If I'm being honest, my show is WAY over-due for another actual appearance by Johnny Krill!" / Johnny Krill says: "Now that there are just five contestants, this is the PERFECT opportunity for me to break out of just being an extreme athlete, and showcase my more INTELLIGENT side!" And Cosmo can be heard loudly LAUGHING off-screen! Johnny sternly says: "Don't laugh! I KNOW I would be able to beat you in ANY trivia challenge that YOU would participate in!" And Cosmo QUICKLY stops laughing! Johnny nods his head, and he says: "That's what I thought!" (End Confessional) The contestants head out to Moat, only to find conditions a little more STORMY than usual! As "Ride Of The Valkyries" plays in the background, Cosmo is seen holding a kite that HAS a metal key on it, while Sniz is blowing Industrial Air Machines, and has some automatic sprinklers turned on! Sniz yells: "This is PERFECT! Just one more step, and our experiment will be complete! Wanda, produce the LIGHTNING!!!!" Wanda actually SMILES, and she says: "I've wanted to do this FOREVER!!!!" Cosmo nervously says: "WAIT! Let's discuss this RATION--!!!!" But Cosmo never gets to finish his thought, as Wanda ZAPS the key with lightning, and it travels down and JOLTS Cosmo with 2,000 Watts or 200 Volts of Electricity, and Cosmo is BLOWN backwards, as he gets covered in charred soot! Sniz turns off the equipment, and he says: "It works! It REALLY works!" Buhdeuce asks: "WHAT works; dare I ask?" Sniz says: "I'm glad you did! You see, I decided to re-enact the classic experiment that Benjamin Franklin performed with a kite and a metal key! By proving that lightning is attracted to metal, Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity!" Dudley says: "And I'm guessing that's related to today's legend!" Sniz says: "You guessed right! Olmec, tell us what today's legend is!" Olmec says: "Today's legend, is The Legend Of The Lost Key of Benjamin Franklin!" Spongebob says: "Wow! We're dealing with a REAL genius this time around!" Sniz says: "That's right! Not only did Benjamin Franklin help develop the United States Patent Office, he made quite a few inventions himself! But what ISN'T widely known about Benjamin Franklin, is that he actually helped POPULARIZE the sport of swimming! Therefore, crossing the Moat will actually be straight-forward!" Marlene says: "Except for the CATCH that follows!" Sniz groans, and he says: "Oh, why must you ALWAYS assume that we have a CATCH for these things?!" Marlene says: "Because you usually DO, that's WHY!" Johnny says: "To be fair, she's not really WRONG!!!!" Sniz sighs, as he is CLEARLY trying to keep his composure, and he just says: "Johnny, DON'T make me fire you! Look, ordinarily, we WOULD have a catch; except coming UP with a catch for the Moat Crossing Challenge for 26 episodes is HARD! And besides, we DON'T have unlimited resources, you know! I mean, TECHNICALLY; with Fairy Godparents we COULD, but that's not the point! The point is, we decided to give you a BREAK for getting to the Final Five! It might be the LAST one you get, barring the next Performance Review!" Buhdeuce says: "FINALLY! A REAL Moat crossing challenge!" General Barracuda shouts: "IGNORE HIM!" Sniz says: "Noted, moving on! In any case, you will cross the moat using nothing more than your own swimming skills; and be grouped into pairs depending on where you finish. And the reason why Johnny Krill is here, is because he will be paired with whoever finishes last!" Johnny says: "Which STILL makes me more relevant than General Barracuda ACTUALLY is!" General Barracuda angrily says: "Why don't you say that CLOSER to my FACE, if you're brave enough?!" Johnny SCOFFS, as if he can't believe General Barracuda honestly thinks that Johnny is THAT stupid, and Johnny says: "I'll PASS, Horatio!" Yakkity says: "OOH, BURN!!!!" (Confessional) General Barracuda says: "I HATE it when I get BURNED!" / Spongebob says: "Benjamin Franklin might have been one of America's FIRST geniuses, but he's definitely STILL one of the best! It's probably why HE'S on America's $100 bill!" / Marlene says: "It's sad to know Sniz is REALLY unpredictable, when he actually gives us a straight-forward challenge! It doesn't happen as often as I would like it to, if I'm being perfectly honest!" / Johnny scoffs, and he says: "It would serve BOTH Sniz and General Barracuda right if the contestant I get paired up with, WINS this challenge with MY help to assist him!" / Buhdeuce says: "Originality, and tradition. For a show that honors Legends Of The Hidden Temple, they REALLY haven't struck a better balance between the two!" / Dudley says: "Well, this challenge will DEFINITELY separate the winners from the contenders, one way or the other! Time to find out which one I am!" / Yakkity says: "Normally, I'm not a fan of roasting! But against people who genuinely DESERVE it? I can DEFINITELY make an exception!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Contestants, get into your positions! And to help motivate you, we'll play Oingo Boingo's 'Weird Science'!" Johnny says: "Wow! Danny Elfman's old band! We're REALLY attracting big names to this show!" General Barracuda groans, and he says: "Oh, STOP talking like you actually KNOW who Danny Elfman IS!" Johnny angrily says: "Well, I actually DO; so I honestly WON'T!!!!" And General Barracuda actually looks STUNNED in a rare moment of defeat! Marlene says: "Wow! Did Johnny just 'Wow Cthulu'?! He's better than I thought!" Sniz asks: "How ELSE would Johnny be able to get himself DRESSED in the morning?!" And Johnny groans at THAT insult! Sniz says: "In any case, everybody get ready! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / While Spongebob, Marlene, and Buhdeuce all swim rather well, being aquatic creatures; Dudley swims slower due to only knowing the Doggy paddle, while Yakkity is actually HINDERED by his new adult fur, soaking up so much water! / Oingo Boingo sings: "It's alive! It's alive! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions? Weird science! Plastic tubes, and pots and pans; bits and pieces and magic from the hand! We're making Weird science! Things I've never seen before, behind bolted doors, talent and imagination! Weird science! Not what teacher said to do; makin' dreams come true! Living tissue; warm flesh! Weird science! Plastic tubes, and pots and pans! Bits and pieces, bits and pieces! Bits of my creation, is it real?! It's my creation, I do not know! No hesitation, no heart of gold! Just flesh and blood, I do not know! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions! Ooh, weird! Weird science! Weird science! Magic and technology! Voodoo dolls and chants! Electricity! We're makin' Weird science! Fantasy and microchips, shooting from the hip! Something different! We're makin' Weird science! Pictures from a magazine! Diagrams and charts, mending broken hearts; and makin' Weird science! Something like a recipe! Bits and pieces! Bits and pieces! Bits of my creation, is it real?! It's my creation, I do not know! From my heart and from my hand, why don't people understand my intentions! Ooh, weird! Weird science! Weird science! Weird science!" / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay! The challenge is over! Marlene and Buhdeuce have once again come in first and second, so they will receive a Pendant of Life! Spongebob and Dudley will be paired together due to coming in 3rd and 4th! And Yakkity, you will be paired with Johnny Krill!" Dudley sighs in relief and says: "Phew! I really dodged a BULLET, there!" Johnny groans and says: "Ouch! Rub it in my FACE, why don't you?!" Spongebob says: "Don't give up YET, Yakkity! I believe in you!" Yakkity says: "I won't! It's not over, til it's over!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Everybody ELSE is counting Johnny Krill out, but I won't! Anything IS possible, as long as you BELIEVE it is!" / Johnny actually smiles, and he says: "At least SOMEBODY has some faith in me! So, I am going to deliver my BEST for him!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "We got to take a break, and dry everybody off! But don't go away! Because we'll be right back with some MORE Total Cartoon Legends!" / (Commercial Break) / I'll break here and stop for now. Enough said, for now!
  15. You know the drill; long re-run, so I'll just get right to it! / Sniz is standing with some props from the Emperor's Chamber and the Hall of Armor, drinking a large Diet Pepsi, and he says: "Last time, on Total Cartoon Legends, the Final Seven were competing against each other, to figure out who knew the most about the legendary Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra! Unfortunately, before any of them could put their knowledge to the test, Snaptrap came back to look for REVENGE, and tried to steal away the $44.44 million! The contestants, not wanting all of their hard work to be for nothing, went after him! After braving the death traps of Snaptrap's pyramid, Bubble Bass utilized the full extent of his bubble powers, and beat the living daylights out of Snaptrap! As it turns out, Snaptrap's clothes had been infected with magical purple parasites, which FORCED him to be evil! And they had been put there by none other than Anti-Cosmo! For Anti-Cosmo's role in attempting to steal the $44.44 million, I fired him AND the rest of the Pixies and Anti-Fairies, stripped them of ALL of their magic, and put Anti-Cosmo in jail! Bubble Bass, deciding that he didn't want to have to force Spongebob to try to vote him off, Bubble Bass decided to willingly quit the challenge instead, and took Infant Rube with him on the Limo of Shame. Snaptrap ended up being the one, who had to take the Mine Cart of Shame home, for the second and LAST time; HOPEFULLY! Now, we are down to just six contestants! One contestant from each show remaining! While none of them has ever won a season before, they're all hoping to do so now! Who has the knowledge to make it down the Steps of Knowledge? Who has the skills to persevere in the Challenge Arena? And WHO will get me another Diet Pepsi?!" Johnny Krill rushes in with another large Diet Pepsi, and he says: "Here you go, sir!" Sniz says: "Well, for all the other questions, find out the answers on today's episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "An enduring part, of the Nickelodeon Dynasty!" / Instead of the normal show open, it instead shows live-action clips taken from various media sources, about average Chinese life, taken between 1990 through 2019, all set to Billy Joel's song, "The Great Wall Of China"! / Billy Joel sings: "Ah, ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah,ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah, Hey! Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Hey! Advice is cheap, you can take it from me! It's yours to keep, 'cause opinions are free! Nobody knows about the trouble I've seen! Nobody's perfect, mister, nobody's clean! It cost too much, and takes too long to find out, too late! Some words are not heard 'til after they're spoken! Your role was protective, your soul was too defective! Some people just don't have a heart to be broken! We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China, if you'd only had a little more faith in me! In lieu of diamonds, gold and platinum reminders will still shine bright! Now all the king's men and all the king's horses, can't put you together the way you used to be! We could have been standing on the Great Wall of China! Hey! You take a piece of whatever you touch! Too many pieces means, you're touching too much! You never win if you can't play it straight! You only beat me if you get me to hate! It must be so lonely to think that you have only somebody else's life to live if they let you! I ain't too selective, but it don't take no detective, to find out how fast your friends will forget you! We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China! Now all you're going to be is history! Help yourself, it's all you can eat at the Empire Diner tonight! You coulda had class, you coulda have been a contender! Charlie, you shoulda looked out for me! You could have been standing, standing on the Great Wall of China! Ah, ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah,ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah, Hey! Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Ah! (Instrumental Break) This was not your calling, just look how far you've fallen! I heard your story, man, you've got to be joking! Keep things in perspective, this is my true objective! Why tear this heart out if it's only been broken? We could have gone all the way to the Great Wall of China, if you'd only had a little more faith in me! In lieu of diamonds, gold and platinum reminders will still shine bright! Now, all the king's men and all the king's horses, can't put you together the way you used to be! We could have been standing, standing on the Great Wall of China! Ah, ah, ah, ah. Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, Ah!" (Scats until the song and montage ends). / "The Legend Of The Lost Terra Cotta Statue of Emperor Qin (Pronounced Chin) Shi Huang!" / It's late at night, and Yakkity is facing his first night alone without Bubble Bass or Infant Rube in the same room with him. Yakkity sighs, and he says: "It feels so WEIRD how much bigger, and emptier this room feels, without Bubble Bass and Infant Rube around. I should be happier, because now I'll get my normal sleep rhythm back! But now, I feel as if I can't sleep the way I used to! I guess, you really don't know WHAT you have, until you don't have it anymore!" And than he hears a knocking on his door. Yakkity asks: "Who is it?" Spongebob says: "It's me, Spongebob! Can I come in?" Yakkity says: "Of course!" And Yakkity opens up the door, seeing Spongebob standing there with what looks like ALL of the belongings Spongebob brought with him! Yakkity asks: "You can't sleep on your own, either; can you?" Spongebob asks: "Is it THAT obvious?" Yakkity says: "Well, kind of! But, come on in, anyways!" Spongebob comes in, and he says: "I know, it should be silly to be so hung up over losing Bubble Bass, but he was the last real friend that I HAD in this competition! And now...I have to face the rest of this competition alone! I know that I have the ability to do it, it's not the first time I've ever been alone. It just...makes me realize, that the hopes that all of my friends who started this half-season WITH me, they're now all depending on me! So, I have to try to win for THEM, as well as myself! And...I'm not sure if I can handle this kind of pressure on my own!" Yakkity says: "Well...maybe, you don't have to really BE alone!" Spongebob asks: "What are you saying?" Yakkity sighs, and he says: "All season long, I've had to represent MY show all on my own! My grandma, and my friends, are all counting on me to make them proud! And...I never thought I could get this far! In fact, if it weren't for Bulma's support, I'm not sure I would've gotten this far!" Spongebob says: "That's not true! You're a funny comedian, and you're a really nice guy! And the truth of the matter is, I'm ALWAYS hurt when Nickelodeon promotes mostly MY show at the expense of all others, such as your own! For the longest time, I've wanted to make it up to you, because I've always felt like you never really got the opportunity that you REALLY deserve! Maybe...it would be a good idea for the two of us to team up together!" Yakkity excitedly asks: "You mean, like a REAL alliance?!" Spongebob says: "Sure. I don't really want to be alone, and you could use someone to help you get to the Final Four! And if we both work together, we could help make BOTH of our dreams come true! Even if you only FINISHED in fourth place, you'd STILL get to go home with $40 million in cold hard cash! MORE than enough to give your Grandma what she deserves, and enough to help support you while you get your comedy career started!" Yakkity says: "That would be one of the nicest things anyone has EVER offered me! All right! I'll take it! Besides, if I get to be with you, I'll be partnering with one of the most well-liked contestants on this show!" Spongebob asks: "You think I'm well-liked?!" Yakkity says: "To be honest, it would be pretty hard for anyone to NOT like you!" (Confessional) Spongebob says: "Honestly? Going to Yakkity felt like the right thing to do. Po...seems to be on his LAST legs! There's no WAY everyone else will want to keep him on this show! Dudley seems to be a little too serious for MY tastes, and Buhdeuce and Marlene are already IN an alliance, as strange as THAT seems! If either Yakkity and I are going to have the best chance of getting to the Final Four, we need to be in an alliance together! That way, if I win challenges, I can use my OWN immunity to vote myself off, so I don't have to vote anyone else off! All I need to do is to help Yakkity win two more challenges! Granted, it won't be as easy as it sounds; but I'm willing to do it, because Yakkity is SUCH a good guy, he DESERVES my best!" / Yakkity says: "In my last partnership with Bulma, I always felt like Bulma saw me as sub-ordinate to her at BEST, and just a vote to help HER vote off whoever SHE wanted at WORST! But with Spongebob? I feel as though he treats me like an EQUAL! He doesn't think he's superior to me, or to anyone else; even if he somehow actually IS! I feel like making a partnership with Spongebob, regardless of how long it lasts; will be a good move for me! Not only is it my best chance of making it to the Final Four, but I might even get some comedy tips, from a REAL master of funny laughs himself! Grandma; one way or another, your Yakkity is going to come home a winner, and a TRUE legend!" (End Confessional) It is early morning, and Buhdeuce and Marlene are having a meeting together in the hotel lobby room. Marlene says: "Well Buhdeuce, we did it! Somehow or another, we did it! Bubble Bass is gone, which means we're one small step to one GIANT leap to getting to the Final Three!" Buhdeuce says: "Technically speaking, Bubble Bass is gone ONLY because he eliminated himself!" Marlene says: "Potato, tomato, semantics! The point is, we need to keep our game up! If we want to get to the Final Three, our best bet is for eliminating the next strongest contestant! And do you know who THAT would be?!" Buhdeuce says: "Of course! It's got to be Po! Even with all of MY video game skills, even I would have difficulty of taking Po in a one on one fight!" Marlene says: "Well, we're LUCKY Yakkity told Po about why Yakkity is competing! Po...just hasn't seemed really invested in competing since than!" Buhdeuce says: "Doesn't that seem WEIRD to you? Po managed to propel himself for so long just TRYING to compete on Tigress' behalf! Why would he stop after Yakkity talked to him?" Marlene says: "Well, when it comes right down to it, Po is the Dragon Warrior! As such, he is HIGHLY invested in doing the most honorable and RIGHT thing by EVERYONE, even if such a thing doesn't get HIM the grand prize money in the end! Po must have felt that Yakkity's desires were FAR more honorable than Po's own desires! And THAT, is just the kind of break that we need!" Buhdeuce asks: "What are you talking about?" Marlene says: "Well, if Po had his FULL sense of composure and wits about him, he would use all his strength and athletic skills AGAINST us! But if is mind ISN'T completely focused on winning, we can USE that to our advantage; beat him, and vote him out of the competition!" Buhdeuce says: "Look; I want to make Sway-Sway proud of me, just as much as you...want to prove whatever point YOU'RE trying to make! But wouldn't eliminating Po be a DISHONORABLE move in itself?!" Marlene asks: "Well, what else can I suggest?! In a show of this nature, SOMEONE has to lose! And I don't intend on it being ME again! Do you really want to lose THIS close to the Final Three?!" Buhdeuce says: "Well, no." Marlene says: "Than we HAVE to make this tough decision! Besides, you know that if the situation were REVERSED, Tigress wouldn't hesitate for a SECOND to avenge Po against us!" Buhdeuce sighs, and he says: "Yeah, you're probably right!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "Up until now, I've been just FINE riding the Tigress train of beating other contestants; mostly because, most of them ignored and ridiculed me! But now that it's just the six of us, it feels harder to do! Po, Dudley, Yakkity, Marlene, and Spongebob all have THEIR reasons for competing just as much as I do! Ideally, I WOULD play Spongebob's tactic, of voting for myself when I won Immunity Challenges, but I think realistically, that boat has LONG set sail for me! And fortune doesn't really favor those who hesitate to take action! So, if Po ISN'T going to try to keep himself in the game, than he only has himself to blame, and I personally wash my wings of ANY fault he thinks that I might have for his OWN decision not to take any initiative!" / Marlene says: "I feel that the reason I faltered in my first two seasons, is that I spent FAR too much time trying to focus the game on ME! I was SO narcissistic, it's no WONDER I didn't get the grand prize in EITHER of those seasons! That's why I purposely held back this season, I needed to FEEL out the other contestants, and see if any of THEIR needs was greater than my own! And even though the other contestants DO have pretty good needs, I can't stop my game now! I need to carry on my strategy to the very end! And with Buhdeuce's passion and development of his skills, along with my OWN knowledge; I have just about everything I need, to get the BOTH of us to the Final Three!" (End Confessional) It is breakfast time, and everyone is eating breakfast; EXCEPT for Po, who really isn't touching his food! Dudley says: "Po, what's up with you?! Usually, you can't WAIT to get your hands on breakfast; and you've barely taken MORE than a few bites of your food!" Po asks: "How could I POSSIBLY enjoy breakfast, due to two IMPORTANT factors?! First off, everyone ELSE besides Spongebob is going to target ME for elimination BECAUSE I'm the strongest! Secondly, if I win; I'd possibly be depriving Yakkity of HIS desires to help make his Grandma proud of him, and I can't see myself doing that! Not to mention, Tigress won't be happy if I just quit! So, I have found myself in a Lose-Lose-LOSE situation!" Buhdeuce winces, and he says: "Oh, that is going to make eliminating Po SO much harder for me!" Marlene says: "He KNEW what he was signing up for when he GOT into this thing! If he REALLY didn't want to disappoint Tigress so much, he would've quit soon after SHE did!" Johnny Krill comes in, rings a gong, and he says: "Attention contestants! At the last challenge, we lost our last former champ, Bubble Bass! The time for eating breakfast, is over! Please come to the Moat, to find out about today's challenge, that is all!" Dudley asks: "Just one question, do you HAVE to ring that gong EVERY time?!" Johnny says: "Especially THIS time! You'll find out why when you go to the Moat!" Po looks at the rest of his food, and he says: "Well, no sense letting this food go to waste!" And he devours the rest of it as fast as he possibly can! (Confessional) Dudley says: "Well, the mystery of the gong is solved!" / Po says: "Normally, losing a challenge should be EASY! It's making the loss look CONVINCING, that's going to be the HARD part to sell to Tigress!" / Buhdeuce winces, and he says: "Why do I suddenly have the SINKING feeling that today's challenge, the challenge where we SHOULD eliminate Po, is going to be FAR much harder than it should be?" / Marlene says: "Look; by all rights, Tigress really SHOULD be the one to be here right now! She was by FAR the strongest out of all of us! But since she's not, I have to do what I need to do, just as much as everyone else! And that's a prospect, that I definitely don't take too lightly!" (End Confessional) The contestants head to the Moat, only to find Sniz once AGAIN dressed up like a Chinese Emperor, and Sniz says: "Welcome to the mystical moat, where floats the most delicate Cherry Blossom flowers, and where a stone pebble can create a ripple that eventually touches every other connected body of water on Earth!" General Barracuda asks: "Care to tell me WHY you're talking like that?" Sniz says: "I was trying to channel Confucious and Buddha! Technically speaking, I should've tried to say it in an Oriental accent, but they're is no WAY I'm going to risk insulting around 2 billion people, give or take!" Spongebob says: "Good call!" Sniz says: "In any case, there's a good reason why I'm dressed like this today! We're going to be dealing with a Chinese related Legend! Olmec, tell us what today's legend is!" Olmec says: "Today's legend, is the Legend of The Lost Terra Cotta Statue of Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang!" Yakkity asks: "Hey! What was with the parentheses?!" Sniz says: "That's for the benefit of our viewing audience, to know how to actually SAY his first name!" Marlene says: "Now THAT'S what I call 'Anti-Frustration Features'!" And Po gulps in nervousness! (Confessional) Po says: "Oh, MAN!!!! It was already going to be hard ENOUGH as it was, trying to lose in a challenge; but since this is going to be a challenge completely REVOLVING around China where I LIVE, it's going to be practically IMPOSSIBLE for me to lose! I have to wonder WHOSE bright idea it WAS to SCHEDULE this challenge RIGHT now?!" / Johnny Krill says: "Come ON!!!! It's not MY fault! I had to help Sniz schedule these challenges in ADVANCE!!!! I had no way of knowing if Po was STILL going to be here, or that he would WANT to lose! He's still perfectly able to DO so! He's just going to have to try HARDER!" / Marlene says: "It really is AMAZING just how META this show has gotten!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "In any case, one of the long time food staples of the Chinese, especially over 2,000 years ago, was rice! So for today's Moat Crossing challenge, you will each be rowing a Chinese River Boat across the Moat! And each Chinese River Boat contains a full sack of rice! It's your job to make sure the Sack of Rice gets across with you to the other side of the Moat intact! Once you have finished crossing, you will ring your Gong pedestal to indicate that you have finished! Once again, where you finish, will help determine who you get paired up with! And, since rice is often grown in a China Grove, we will play The Doobie Brother's hit song 'China Grove', sung by The Real Breadwinners, to help motivate you in this challenge!" Johnny Krill says: "Uh, that's NOT what the hit song 'China Grove' was originally about!" General Barracuda says: "And I'M surprised you're even smart enough to KNOW that!" Sniz says: "Look, if you don't like it, go on the Internet and COMPLAIN; like all the TROLLS do!" Buhdeuce says: "I HATE trolls! Totally tore down MY show without even really giving it a chance!" Sniz says: "All right, everybody get into your positions! You are competing for a Pendant of Life! On your marks, get set, GO!" / Everybody takes off across the Moat, and while everyone else is focused on rowing, Po keeps getting distracted and actually EATING the (surprisingly) cooked rice in his sack of rice! / The Real Breadwinners (Sway-Sway) sings: "When the sun comes up on a sleepy little town down around The Yangtze, and the folks are risin' for another day, 'round about their homes. The people of the town are strange, and they're proud of where they came! Well, you're talkin' 'bout China Grove! Oh, China Grove! Well, the preacher and the teacher; man, they're a caution! They are the talk of the town! When the gossip gets to flyin', and they ain't lyin' when the sun goes fallin' down! They say that the father's insane, And dear Mrs. Tigress loves a game! We're talkin' 'bout the China Grove! Oh, China Grove! But every day, there's a new thing comin'; the ways of an Oriental view! The police and their buddies with their Katana swords, you can even hear the music at night! And though it's a part of their history, some people don't seem to care! They just keep on lookin' to the East! Talkin' 'bout the China Grove! Oh, China Grove! Woah! China Grove!" / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay, everybody has finished crossing! I just need to check your sacks of rice to make sure that your placing is legitimate!" Spongebob shows a full sack of rice, Marlene shows a full sack of rice, Buhdeuce shows a full sack of rice, Dudley shows a full sack of rice, Yakkity shows a full sack of rice; Po opens his sack up, and doesn't FIND any rice left! Po says: "Uh, I guess, I ate it!" Johnny looks exasperated, as if even HE can't believe THAT flimsy excuse, and Johnny says: "You GUESS you ate it?! You LITERALLY have rice grains all over your FACE!!!!" And as Po brushes the rice grains off of his face, Sniz says: "Well, in any case, Marlene and Buhdeuce have won a Pendant of Life by finishing in first place! Spongebob and Yakkity are competing together by placing 3rd and 4th! And Dudley will be placed with Po since they finished in 5th and 6th! And Po? I am sorry, but since you DIDN'T finish the challenge with a full sack of rice, I'm AFRAID I'm going to have to hit you with a Penalty Vote! I'm sorry but, rules are rules!" Po says: "Oh! That's...something I can live with!" (Confessional) Dudley says: "Po, doesn't seem to concerned about the news! What is UP with that?!" / Po says: "I wasn't even THINKING about how the Penalty Vote Rule is still in play! I still have a realistic chance to LOSE this!" Than Po winces, and says: "Please...delete THAT comment BEFORE Tigress has a chance to see it!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "We've got to get everybody cleaned up and tidied up! But be sure to come back to see some MORE of Total Cartoon Legends!" / (Commercial Break) / The contestants gather at the Steps of Knowledge. Dudley turns to Po, and Dudley says: "Honestly Po, what were you THINKING; eating a sack of rice like that?!" Po says: "Well, it smelled so good! And it was delicious! Besides, do I LOOK like the type of Panda who would let a perfectly cooked meal of food go to waste?!" Yakkity looks at Po, and Yakkity says: "Not from MY perspective, you don't! And I mean that in the NICEST way possible!" Po, confused, says: "Thank you?" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Mostly, I like my jokes to be based on the TRUTH whenever possible! And honestly, I'm not afraid if it's mostly at my OWN expense! I'm probably more comfortable of making fun of my button-up fur and impossibly skinny frame of my body, than anything else! After all, if you can't OCCASIONALLY laugh at yourself, what CAN you laugh it?!" / Po says: "Eating a sack of rice ISN'T what bothers me at all! What bothers me is, I wonder who in their right mind COOKED my sack of rice in the first place?!" / Johnny Krill sighs, and he says: "Look! I made a simple MISTAKE, all right?! When Sniz told me he needed SIX sacks of rice for the Moat Challenge, I realized that I had already cooked ONE sack of rice, intending it for breakfast! I didn't want to BOTHER Sniz, so I also used the one I already cooked, and I hoped nobody would notice! I should have KNOWN that I could NEVER sneak any COOKED food past Po's nose! And I mean that in the NICEST way possible!" (End Confessional) Spongebob turns to Yakkity, and Spongebob says: "Yakkity, do you think we have a chance to beat Po in the Steps Of Knowledge?" Yakkity says: "I would think we actually have MORE of a chance, because we both WANT it more than Po! Besides, I know that you don't want to actually vote Po OFF, so winning is your best INCENTIVE for making that happen!" Spongebob says: "Good point!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Another thing I've noticed about jokes, is about where you are in relation to where such an event takes place! For example, if you're far enough away from an event; you don't feel such an attachment to it, so it's probably easier for you to make a joke! However, I HIGHLY doubt I could make fun of MOST of the contestants I've met on this show! I'm on friendly terms with WAY too many of them! Maybe there are some OTHER comedians who wouldn't have a problem with that, but I don't think that I am one of them!" / Spongebob says: "Look, I admit that I messed up when it came to Bulma's elimination! I thought she would NEVER vote herself off and keep her word, so I thought I was honestly doing the right thing! But the truth of the matter is, I did what would be called 'The Wrong Thing For the Right Reasons'. I eliminated Bulma on the basis that it's what I SHOULD have done back in season three, if I KNEW everything there was to know about Bulma BEFORE season three occurred! And...it never occurred to me that Bulma had the same capacity to change as I did! I...guess sometimes, even I can act like Squidward has when I don't really MEAN to! But I don't have to let that mistake define who I truly AM! I think I can let that mistake be a reminder, that I always have ROOM for improvement, and strive to be all the better BECAUSE of it!" (End Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "Marlene, what do you think our chances are of winning the Steps Of Knowledge?" Marlene says: "Ordinarily, I WOULD say, 'Pretty good', given that I've actually BEEN to China back in season three! However, I REFUSE to jinx myself and get us BOTH into 'Tempting Fate'! So, we'll just have to deal with this challenge WITHOUT any preconceived notions of winning!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "I guess it's a good thing Marlene decided to team up with me! Without her, I might have muddled up the whole deal with misplaced optimism!" / Marlene says: "Don't get me wrong! A little optimism never hurt ANYBODY! But too much of it could be outright suicidal, when it comes to facing some of the HARSH realities of life! I think it's a good rule of thumb, to prepare for the worst, but ALWAYS hope for the best!" (End Confessional) Sniz finally arrives in all his Chinese Emperor regalia, and Dudley asks: "Are you going to wear that through the WHOLE episode?!" Sniz says: "Maybe. Is that a CRIME?!" Dudley says: "Of course not! Just wondering!" (Confessional) Dudley says: "Sheesh! Can't even ask a simple QUESTION anymore without rattling someone's nerves! I wonder if this is how Chameleon felt prior to becoming friends with me? I should ask him once I see him again!" / Sniz says: "It took me FOUR hours to get this look! Of COURSE I'm going to parade in it for as long as I can! After all, when ELSE am I going to get a chance to look like this again?! There's not EXACTLY a lot of opportunities for ME to do something like that!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "In any case, it's time to listen to Olmec, as he tells about the Legend of the Lost Terra Cotta Statue of Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang!" Johnny Krill says: "He will START at the beginning! And when he gets to the end, he'll stop! See how that works?!" General Barracuda sarcastically says: "HOW obvious!" Olmec says: "Shi Huangdi, otherwise known in English as Qin (Chin) Shi Huang, was born on January 21, 259 B.C.E., in the Ancient Chinese State of Zhao, in its capital of Handan. Initially born as Ying Zheng to the King and Queen of the Ancient Chinese State/Kingdom of Qin, Qin Shi Huang ascended to the throne of the kingdom, after the death of his father in 246 B.C.E., at just 13 years of age! Nine years later, Qin Shi Huang gained full power of his Kingdom in 235 B.C.E.! Not content with having just control over his own Kingdom, Qin waged war against the other warring states of Ancient China! Despite only living for 49 years, there were many coup and/or assassination attempts on him during his life! Regardless of the attempts, one by one, the other states of Ancient China fell to Qin's military might! The State of Han in 230 B.C.E., the State of Zhao in 228 B.C.E., the state of Yan in 226 B.C.E., the state of Wei in 225 B.C.E., the state of Chu in 223 B.C.E., and the state of Qi in 221 B.C.E.! Upon uniting all of Ancient China under one rule, Qin (Chin) Shi Huang gave himself a new title; Shi Huangdi! Literally, 'First Emperor'! The rule of Emperors would continue on through future dynasties, up until 1911 A.C.E.! Despite the military campaigns, Emperor Qin did introduce many improvements in Chinese life! First, he completely did aware with Feudalism, and made all future job employments be based on merit, not family lineage! He standardized the Chinese units of measurements, such as weight, currency, and the length of axles for carts! He also developed an extensive road and canal system between his provinces, to improve trade relations between them! More importantly, he standardized the Chinese script of the Chinese people, which is still in use today! But perhaps Emperor Qin's most enduring legacy, is that he commissioned a precursor to The Great Wall of China, to protect it's people from nomadic invaders, although little of the Qin section of the wall remains today! In 215 B.C.E., Emperor Qin ordered an exotic tomb, to be built in the event of his death! 6,000 Terra Cotta Statues, including one of Emperor Qin, were built into the tomb! Emperor Qin died sometime during August of 210 B.C.E., and his Terra Cotta Statue, vanished to the mists of time, until it found it's way to the Temple! Your job is to retrieve the Statue, and bring it back here!" Sniz says: "Thanks, Olmec! Where can the Lost Terra Cotta Statue of Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang be found?" Olmec says: "The Lost Terra Cotta Statue can be found, in the Snake Maze!" Sniz says: "All right! You all know what to do, you're competing for a Pendant of Life! Olmec, take it away!" Olmec asks: "What was the birth name, of Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene answers: "Ying Zheng!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" Buhdeuce and Marlene move down a step, and he says: "Who KNEW that one guy could have so MANY different names?!" Marlene says: "Try asking Sean 'Puffy' Combs or WHATEVER name he's currently going by that question!" Olmec asks: "When was Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang believed to be born?" Spongebob rings in, and Yakkity answers: "On January 21, 259 B.C.E.!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" Spongebob and Yakkity move down a step! Yakkity says: "I can't BELIEVE they don't know the EXACT date for that!" Spongebob says: "Well, hindsight is always 20/20, as they like to say!" Olmec asks: "Where was Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang born?" Dudley rings in, and answers: "In the Ancient Chinese State of Zhao, in its capital of Handan!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Dudley and Po move down a step! Dudley says: "Come on! Partnered with YOU, we should ALREADY be at the bottom of the Steps by now!" Po says: "Come on! You know how STRONG I am! I just don't want to take the chance of accidentally BREAKING a buzzer, and racking up penalty votes!" Johnny Krill says: "Technically speaking, he's NOT wrong! Destruction of Studio Property on these premises WOULD result in a penalty vote!" Dudley groans, and says: "FINE! I'll answer the questions myself!" And Po actually SWEATS nervously! Olmec asks: "When did Qin (Chin) Shi Huang ascend to the throne of the Kingdom of Qin?" Buhdeuce rings in, and Marlene answers: "In 246 B.C.E., at 13 years of age!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Marlene and Buhdeuce move down a step! Buhdeuce says: "I sure hope HISTORY buffs are getting MORE from Olmec's knowledge than PO is!" Marlene says: "Are you kidding?! Most of the history BEHIND these legends practically made up the bulk of MY Elementary School history education!" Olmec asks: "When did Qin (Chin) Shi Huang fully gain control of his Kingdom?" Spongebob rings in, and Yakkity answers: "In 235 B.C.E.!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Yakkity move down a step! Spongebob says: "I'm SURPRISED that you're GOOD at this!" Yakkity says: "Well, to be fair, yaks WERE originally native to Asia!" Olmec asks: "True or False, there were many assassination attempts on Qin (Chin) Shi Huang's life?" Dudley rings in and says: "True!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Dudley and Po move down a step! Dudley asks: "You're REALLY going to make ME do ALL the work?!" Po says: "Come ON! When you say it like that, you sound as though you're trying to make me a BAD guy!" Dudley says: "Than prove that you're NOT, and actually DO something!" Than Po feels a RUMBLE in his tummy and Po says: "Uh-oh! I gotta DO something pretty quick!" Dudley says: "Po, you are NOT leaving until we finish this challenge! Can't you HOLD it?!" Po nervously says: "Well, not for LONG!!!!" Dudley groans, and he says: "Fine, make it QUICK!!!!" Po says: "Thank you!" And Po HURRIES to the restroom, and Sniz says: "HEY!!!! You can't LEAVE during the middle of a challenge; that counts as a PENALTY vote!" Johnny sighs, and he says: "It's all that STUPID rice he ate earlier! That Panda needs to learn some self-control for his eating habits! Even Bubble Bass did SOME of that!" Sniz says: "Well, we got to finish this! Next correct answer is for a Pendant of Life!" Olmec says: "When was China finally united under Qin Shi Huang's rule?" Spongebob rings in and answers: "221 B.C.E.!" Olmec says: "That is correct!" And Spongebob and Yakkity move to the bottom of the Steps! Sniz says: "Spongebob and Yakkity made it down the Steps of Knowledge! They get a Pendant of Life!" Yakkity says: "Awesome! I KNEW acing all of those history lessons would ONE day pay off!" Spongebob says: "Don't count your eggs JUST yet, Yakkity! We've got to win the Challenge Arena BEFORE we can even THINK about celebrating!" Yakkity says: "Good call!" Po runs back in, and he says: "What did I miss?!" Dudley face-palms himself, and he says: "Helping me WIN!!!! If YOU had helped, we'd be sitting pretty in the Elimination Ceremony, COMPLAINING about having nothing to do!" Po says: "Well, I CAN'T control when my body NEEDS to go to the restroom! I mean, when you got to, you GOT to!" Dudley groans, and he says: "You are SO lucky that I am NOT able to argue with THAT!" (Confessional) Dudley says: "You would THINK that as SMART as we are, we would've figured out a way to evolve BEYOND needing to go to the bathroom by now!" / Po says: "To my knowledge, the only one I know of who has COMPLETE control over HER body, is Tigress! And even I don't know HOW she does it!" / Johnny shakes his head, and he says: "It's kind of sad to know that Bubble Bass has MORE self-control than Po does, however LITTLE it might be!" / Yakkity says: "My grandma always told me that learning history would pay off SOME day! It's certainly starting to, now!" / Spongebob says: "I've competed on this show long enough to know that you don't celebrate a victory, until AFTER you've actually won it! I'm not jinxing ANYTHING this time!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "Okay, it's time to move on to the Challenge Arena! From as early as the Seventh Century B.C.E. to 1644 A.C.E., various Dynasties under various rulers, built what would become the Great Wall of China! Collectively, the Wall stretches for a total distance of 13,170.7 miles in length! Luckily, your task won't be quite as hard! Each group will work together, to build a scaled down replica of the Great Wall of China! You all have up to 13,170 bricks, one for each FULL mile of the wall, to work with! Your job is to build a wall of up to 1.317 miles in length! And NO, the wall CAN'T be just one brick high; the wall has to be at least five bricks high in order to count as a wall! So, whichever group builds the most complete scaled-down replica of the Great Wall of China, will receive a Pendant of Life! If it's Dudley and Po, we WILL have to resort to a tie-breaker question! Hopefully, it won't have to come to that! And, whoever gets to go to the Temple AND complete the Temple Run, will receive a reward! While we don't have the budget or the resources to send you to China, we went with the NEXT best thing! Johnny, tell them what it is!" Johnny Krill says: "You'll be going to a place that inspired a 1971 movie, as well as a line that we can't repeat or else we'd LOSE our PG rating! It's China Town, located in scenic downtown, Los Angeles! China Town, it's not just for Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway anymore!" Buhdeuce nervously asks: "Marlene, they wouldn't try to eat a DUCK in the China Town of Los Angeles, would they?" Marlene says: "I couldn't honestly say. But either way, I'd protect YOU from getting eaten!" Buhdeuce says: "Thank you, I feel SO much better!" (Confessional) Buhdeuce says: "Listen! Potentially getting eaten by monsters on Pondgea is ONE thing! Getting eaten by potentially amoral humans? TOTALLY different ball park!" / Marlene says: "One thing's for sure; if anybody TRIED to eat me, Skipper would be on them SO fast, it might LITERALLY make their heads spin!" (End Confessional) Yakkity excitedly says: "Ooh, China Town! My Grandma often likes to shop and eat there! Do you think we can win it, Spongebob?! It would be SO great to get to see HER again!" Spongebob says: "Of course! You don't even really HAVE to ask! I would be honored to help you win the reward!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "Hopefully, Gordon Quid WON'T be running whichever restaurant we end up going to!" / Spongebob says: "While the reward is a nice incentive, I would help Yakkity even WITHOUT the promise of a reward; mostly because I consider him a good friend!" (End Confessional) Po scoffs, and he says: "That reward is probably over-rated anyways! You can't beat REAL Chinese food cuisine!" Dudley says: "I could care LESS about the authenticity of the menus! A reward is a reward! And IF the reward doesn't seem up to par, I'm SURE we can get a cash equivalent instead so we can go on our OWN trip later!" Po says: "Yes, you ARE correct on THAT account!" (Confessional) Po says: "Lucky for me, I was born a NOODLE Maker, NOT a brick layer! Building is NOT one of my strength's!" / Dudley sighs, and he says: "What's the POINT of BEING with the Dragon Warrior if he DOESN'T use the full extent of his abilities?! I bet TIGRESS never has THIS type of trouble!" (End Confessional) Sniz says: "All right! Everybody get into positions, and to inspire you; we'll play Paul Simon's hit song, 'Something So Right'. If you're wondering why, you'll find out soon enough! Let's put three minutes on the clock! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / While everybody else manages to lay their bricks just fine, Po keeps accidentally BREAKING the bricks with his immense strength, making Dudley's wall be FAR shorter than it SHOULD be! / Paul Simon sings: "You've got the cool water, when the fever runs high. You've got the look of love light in your eyes. And I was in a crazy motion, til you calmed me down. It took a little time, but you calmed me down. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. I'm the first to admit it, but the last one to know. When something goes right, well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me, because it's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right. Something so right. They've got a wall in China, it's a thousand miles long. To keep out the foreigners, they made it strong. And I've got a wall around me, that you can't even see. It took a little time, to get next to me. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. I'm the first to admit it, but the last one to know. When something goes right, well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me, because it's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right. Something so right. Some people never say the words, 'I love you', it's not their style to be so bold. Some people never say those words, 'I love you'. But like a child, they're longing to be told. When something goes wrong, I'm the first to admit it. I'm the first to admit it, but the last one to know. When something goes right, well it's likely to lose me. It's apt to confuse me, because it's such an unusual sight. I can't get used to something so right. Something so right." / And the song ends as the challenge ends! Sniz says: "Okay! The challenge is over, it's time to reveal how much of a wall each group built! Marlene and Buhdeuce built a wall that's .656 miles in length! Spongebob and Yakkity built a wall that's .971 miles in length! And SOMEHOW, Dudley and Po ONLY built a wall that's .439 miles in length!" Dudley groans, and says: "Blame SUPER Strength Po! He kept BREAKING most of the bricks!" Po says: "It's not MY fault they don't make bricks the way they USED to!" Sniz says: "Well, for breaking challenge material; even IF it was accidental, results in ANOTHER penalty vote! And, it looks like Spongebob and Yakkity built the most complete wall, so they're going to the Temple! Everyone else's fates will be decided once they've finished their Temple Run! Now, it's time to decide who gets to go first!" Yakkity says: "I'll go first!" Sniz says: "In that case, Spongebob will go second! Now, Map will detail how to get through the Temple as Olmec tells us about what's inside of him THIS time!" Map says: "I'm on it!" / And Map's visual information fills in, as Olmec tells about the contents of the Temple! Olmec says: "First, you will start by entering the Mummy's Crypt! Pull on the right tablet, but beware of the Temple Guard! Next, go on the Ledge, and knock over the Column, which will allow you to enter the Observatory! Spin the Sundial, than head into the Secret Chamber! Push on the right statue head, than head into the Hall of Armor! Place yourself into the correct suit of armor, than head into the Shrine of the Silver Monkey! Assemble the Monkey in the correct order, and head into the Emperor's Chamber! Smash the Clay Pots to find the key, and slide down into the Mountain Crevasse! Smash the Stone Wall, and find yourself in the Snake Maze, where you can grab the Lost Terra Cotta Statue of Emperor Qin (Chin) Shi Huang! Make your way through the Maze, than head into the Room of Paintings! Place yourself against the right painting, than head into the Room of Panels! Match the panels of each side of the ladder, than head back through the Pit! Climb through the Cave of Sighs, and back to the Temple Entrance! The choices are yours, and yours alone! Good luck!" Sniz says: "Okay! This is for a reward and IMMUNITY! Yakkity, get into your position! Olmec, lower the gate!" And Olmec groans as he lowers his steel gate! Sniz says: "Let's put three minutes on the clock! On your marks, get set, GO!!!!" / And as Yakkity takes off, Sniz narrates the action as he goes along! / Sniz says: "Yakkity is in the Mummy's Crypt, and a Temple Guard, right off the bat! He gives up his pendant, and he's on the Ledge!" And Yakkity makes a burp SO loud, he causes the column to FALL down with just his sound! Sniz says: "Unusual, but we'll allow it! Saves some time! Up to the Observatory! He's got to spin the Sundial, and he's done it! Down into the Secret Chamber! He's got to find the right statue! Found a shortcut to the Ledge, and he's found it! Into the Hall of Armor! Got to put on the right suit of armor! Another Temple Guard! Go, Spongebob, go! Through the Mummy's Crypt! Across the Ledge! Through the short-cut that Yakkity found into the Secret Chamber! Now Spongebob's in the Hall of Armor! And he's found the right suit! Into the Shrine of The Silver Monkey! It's Johnny Krill as a Temple Guard! Spongebob gives up his Pendant, and now he's got to assemble the Monkey! He's got the base, he's got the stomach, and he has the head! It connects! Into the Emperor's Chamber! He's got to smash the clay pots to find the key, and he's found it! Down he slides into the Mountain Crevasse! He's got to break through the Stone Wall, and he's done it! He's in the Snake Maze! He's making his way, and he's got the Terra Cotta Statue! All the doors are open! He's making it through the Room of Paintings, through the Room of Panels, back through the Pit! Now, he's got to climb through the Cave of Sighs, and Spongebob has made it, with 24 seconds to spare! Spongebob and Yakkity win the reward to China Town in Los Angeles, and Immunity! They will get to go on their trip, as soon as we find out who will be eliminated tonight!" (Confessional) Yakkity says: "I always knew I could count on Spongebob in a pinch! That guy can really come through for you when it matters the most!" / Spongebob says: "Mostly, I feel good knowing that Po's elimination won't be MY fault at all! Honestly, he kind of brought it on himself; however intentional or UNINTENTIONAL it was!" (End Confessional) It is night-time, and everyone is at the Elimination Ceremony. Sniz has finally changed out of his Chinese Emperor regalia! Sniz says: "Comfortable, it might have been! But MAN! There is just no AIR flow in those ancient clothes! Anyways, you know why you're here! You are the Final Six, but soon you will be the Final Five! You will cast your votes! Po, you already HAVE three penalty votes, so you will need at LEAST three other contestants AND you to not vote for you in order to be safe! Whichever contestant has the most votes, will be eliminated from the contest! And they cannot return, EVER! With that being said, VOTE!!!!" And the contestants quickly make their choices! Sniz says: "Voting is over, it's time to reveal who is safe! Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, Yakkity!" And it comes down to Dudley and Po, who are the only two contestants left! Sniz says: "Only one chocolate Pendant of Life left! And since he has the magical gift to actually ENJOY it, the chocolate Pendant goes to...Dudley!" And Po actually breathes a sigh of relief! Dudley asks: "Are you...actually HAPPY that you're eliminated?!" Po says: "Honestly? Yes! You might not know, but it takes real SKILL for me to hold back the FULL extent of my strength! I'll actually be HAPPY to not hold back so much, now that I'm out of the competition, and everything!" Marlene says: "I'd be more worried about how you're going to explain THIS to Tigress! I don't think she's going to be all too happy, if your elimination LAST time was any indication!" Po groans, and he says: "Well, I'll deal with it with the time comes, and take all the blame that inevitably comes MY way!" Buhdeuce says: "Thank you, I feel SO much better!" Spongebob says: "And if it's any consolation, we WILL see you at the Finale in not too long!" Yakkity says: "So, at least you have THAT to look forward to!" General Barracuda asks: "Just one question; HOW are we supposed to MOVE Po on the Mine Cart of Shame?! He WEIGHS like 800 POUNDS!!!!" Po groans, and he says: "How many times does it have to be SAID?! I only weigh 776 pounds, and most of it is muscle, anyways!" General Barracuda says: "Still too much for the Mine Cart of Shame!" Johnny Krill says: "Not if you use the Afterburners! If they can power a Saturn V Rocket to the Moon, it can DEFINITELY move a panda!" Sniz says: "Than it will be YOUR job to make the 'Launch' go smoothly!" Po puts on his helmet, and straps himself into the Mine Cart of Shame! Sniz says: "Are you ready, Olmec?" Olmec says: "Ready, Sniz!" Sniz says: "Than 3, 2, 1, BLAST-OFF!!!!" And the Mine Cart fires up, only to SPUTTER and stop only a few inches after moving! Johnny Krill groans and says: "Come on! AGAIN?!!! I thought I fixed that issue the LAST time!!!!" And Johnny goes to check the afterburners from the back, only for the camera to pan over to General Barracuda, who's standing by a SUSPICIOUSLY removed power cord! He plugs it back in, and says: "OOPS!!!!" (BOOM!!!!) And the afterburners kick back in and burn OFF all of Johnny Krill's clothes AGAIN, leaving him a charred mess as Po rockets down the Mine Cart Rails, and through the Mine Shaft of Losers! Johnny Krill groans, and says: "Was THAT take-off REALLY necessary?! I really lose MORE clothes that way!" General Barracuda says: "Don't hate the player, hate the game!" Sniz says: "And speaking of game, our game is really winding down, now! We are down to the Final Five! Spongebob, Marlene, Buhdeuce, Dudley, and Yakkity! Anyone of them have the potential to become the ultimate legend of this season, but only ONE will get to win up to $44.44 million! We will be one step closer to finding out the answer, on the next episode of Total Cartoon Legends!" Olmec says: "And remember, the journey of 1,000 miles, begins with a single step!" / Stinger: Spongebob and Yakkity are enjoying their reward at a Chinese, China Town Restaurant Buffet, and they are joined by Yakkity's Grandma! Yakkity joyfully hugs her, and he says: "Grandma, you CAME!!!!" Yakkity's Grandma says: "Of course I did! I couldn't resist getting the chance to see my BOUBALA come here on a reward trip, so close to the Final Three!" Spongebob asks: "Boubala?" Yakkity says: "It's a term of endearment from her HOME country, so she says!" Yakkity's Grandma says: "And I understand you've made some GREAT friends like...Sponge Boy!" Spongebob says: "It's Spongebob; still a common mistake for SOME people! But yes, I do intend to help Yakkity as best as I can!" Gordon Quid comes in, and he says: "And I'll be excited to see how you do!" Yakkity groans, and he says: "PLEASE tell me you don't RUN this restaurant!" Gordon says: "Relax! For once, I'm not working! I'm OFF the job, and I'm GOING to enjoy a fine meal! I wonder what MY Fortune Cookie has in store for me today?!" Gordon opens up his Fortune Cookie, and he reads it out loud, and says: "Your car will be crushed by a random Mine Cart?" (CRASH!!!!) Spongebob groans, and he says: "That BETTER not be what I think it is!" And Spongebob, Yakkity, Yakkity's Grandma, and Gordon all run out ONLY to find that Gordon's Limo has been CRUSHED by the Mine Cart that Po has been riding in! Gordon groans, and he yells: "COME ON!!!! I didn't even OWN the restaurant THIS time!" Po says: "Cut me some SLACK! At least I didn't actually BREAK something of a restaurant that you OWNED! I THINK that's making progress!" Yakkity says: "Gordon, you have my word that if I win SOME amount of prize money, I will use it to reimburse you, so you can get a brand new limo!" Gordon says: "Thank you, I feel SO much better!" Spongebob says: "MAN! Those Chinese Fortunes these days are starting to get WAY too accurate for their own good!" Yakkity's Grandma says: "You said it, Spongebob!" / Episode Notes: First time since the "Total Cartoon Global Cruise" episode "China, Girl!", that Sniz has appeared in his Chinese Emperor regalia!

Yakkity Yak, ("Yakkity Yak"). / Personal Notes: For some reason, Po does NOT seem to work very well without someone CLOSE to him to bounce off of! While in seasons 3 and 4A, he worked well with Tigress due to the both of them getting eliminated rather close together. But since Po's role this season involved him lasting significantly longer than Tigress, Po thankfully had Taotie to bounce off of, to help Taotie on his road to redemption, and becoming a real friend to them! Try as I did, Po didn't really have much going for him once Taotie got eliminated! So, by Po discovering that Yakkity had a legitimate reason for being there, as opposed to Po's goal of avenging Tigress; Po decided that Yakkity's need was greater than Po's, and Po decided to leave the competition, in order to help Yakkity try to achieve his need. I hope you enjoyed reading this episode, as much as I did writing it. Enough said, true believers!
