The Drunken Master is back again, but for the last time!?

This is it; Jackie Chan Adventure's tenure on Toonami (as far as we know) is ending with this episode. A ratings anchor for the early part of the block, the show has gotten some fans realizing it's continuity fun, while other saw it as a weak connection to the younger audience of Toonami.

Continuing the search for the animals of the Zodiac, the J-Team is led to India. Chasing down the snake, they run into their greatest threat ever! No, it's not Valmont and the Dark Hand, nor is it Shen Du, or Dao Lon Wong and the... Dark Hand. Tohru's mom is in the house.

Spoilers: If the episode has occured preceding this one, feel free to talk about it. If not, spoiler boxes.

Maybe someone could enlighten me.
Didn't Tohru change sides to save his mom from the dragon thing?
How'd that happen?

Tohru was ordered by Valmont to fight Shendu in Season 1. Fed up with the Dark Hand, Tohru decided to change sides and become Uncle's apprentice.

You know Jackie's dancing around fighting in the beginning with the Dark Hand Enforcers? It's a take off of the "Drunken Master" style of fighting from one of Jackie Chan's old movies. Just in case any of you wanted to know.

Hm, for the last episode of JCA on Toonami for while, it was a good one. I'd seen this episode before.
  • I always like the bickering between Uncle and Tohru's mother. Always differing opinions on methods, and that solution at the end probably didn't help things between the two..
  • Interesting episode with the invisible snake. Jackie fighting while poisoned was pretty funny, reminscent of his films, and the goons pretending to have the invisible snake, or when they thought they were invisible was funny.
I give "Invisible Mom" a B+.

I was gonna say that too. I didn't notice it when this episode was first on Kids' WB, but since then I actually got to see Drunken Master and seeing the episode again tonight I recognized it right away. I wonder if the promo that mentions Drunken Master had this episode in mind.

Though I doubt the real effects of a cobra bite resemble intoxication like that. Still, what a fun way to work the reference in.

Probably. Jackie Chan has been popularly associated with it ever since he did the first movie a couple decades ago. :shrug:

youtube Nickelodeon above banner STILL reads as That New Thursday Nights.. it may be a matter of time to remove that banner since there's no new episodes of Lay Lay and Dylan this time.
