The Frollo Theory #1

Since The Frollo Show is my faovurite series, I often rewatch the episodes looking for easter eggs and secrets. When I discover something interesting, I post it on the official Facebook page so every fan can read it and write his opinion.

I will write three theories each article and I may translate it for the Hispanic readers.

Theory #1

Do you remember Villain's Valley? Check the mark 5:40 of Final Forest:


Now, check the background of the new Frollo Show trailer:


A bit of history:

Villain's Valley was going to be the last SSE level in Lawl. But Chincherrinas made a lot of characters and modes, starting with Yomika, so the next levels were Guertena Museum and Camp of Stars instead the Valley.

What could this mean?

Frollo Gets Flashed By A Gothic Lolita has a lot of similarities with Brawl's final act.

In Brawl: The characters go through a portal to fight Tabuu while the "losers" have some revival chips made by King Dedede.

In TFS: They will fight Wilford Brimley in his dimension, a lot of characters died and the survivors are on THE PITy.

My theory is that Chin won't do his original idea about Villains Valley because the changes he make for the newcomers and that idea was recycled for TFS.

What do you think? Casuality or there is a link between both ideas?

Theory #2:

Since we will be able to watch the new episode on less than 7 hours, I'm doing Frollo Show marathon to get every reference. That's why I'm linking some things.

My second theory of today is a bit crazy and it just could be based on meaningless jokes. But through the series, Chin likes to foreshadow a lot:

-The theme of "Frollo finally doing it" with Panty starts pretty soon in the series and it's the main macguffin of the show.

*If you don't know what a magguffin is: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macguffin

-Some events are totally opposite from others. That way, we have an ep called "Frollo gets AIDS" and other "Frollo tries to get laid" (and now "Frollo finally does it”). Also, "Frollo is too young" and "Gaston is too old" in the birthday dream. BTW Leet Fighters 4 and 5.

Assuming that the perfect form of Wilford Brimley had been foreshadowed, how could it be? I have four possibilities. Remember that the perfect form could not be foreshadowed, so don’t take them too seriously:

1) Wilfiygas:

This would be very lame because we have already seen this form and it was when he even wasn't perfect. But Chin has developed his animation and effects a lot since "Frollo misses his mother". So it could be like when Mecha Streisand returns in South Park: same old one-time character, but thousands times cooler and well-done.

2) "Ronald McDonald"

I use quotes because we know he is an illusionist, so he could have been using an invented identity all the time and we still don't know his real one. Now, you could argue that Ronald and Wilford can't be the same entity because when Ronald fights Panty, both are at the same spot on the same time. This isn't a problem, because we have seen Ronald being defeated by his own allusions: Nostalgia Critic and his Burger King in "Frollo beats Evil Residents".

I have another proof for this argument: when Ronald beats Panty, he says "I'm getting better at beating angels". Saying "I'm getting better" proves he has beaten angels before. Ronald hadn't share any scene with angels before, but Wilford yes.

When Frollo and Gaston go to Hell, Panty and Stocking try to replace them, but they're instantly defeated by Wilford. That would explain a previous fight between them.

Also, Ronald/Wilford's perfect form could be foreshadowed on Leet Fighters 6 when Guile and Bison see a unshown Ronald form so scary that they run away. I always thought that Ronald was based on Stephen King’s It, since both are scary clowns that transform and make illusions.

3) Shrek

Calm down, I have an explanation. Wilford is identified with the color red: his power is seen as a red aura, the sky becomes red when he becomes perfect...

Now, this could be a lazy argument, but when Irate Gamer uses Inferno's power to defeat Morrigan and Demitri, the sky turns Wilford-ish for a moment with plenty of Shrek faces. This could be a simple joke because Bores plays before that a Shrek game and, lastly, Shrek is becoming an Internet meme: "Shrek is love, Shrek is life".

So, could Bores playing Shrek and the sky turning into him be foreshadowing Shrek being the perfect form?

I didn't think on writing it on this page because it feels too random... until Wilford himself says after defeating Super Sayian Frollo "I'm love, I'm life". Again, these could be only jokes, but it could be a smart way of foreshadow.

4) Obao

Taking in mind that Wilford creates his dimension eating Madotsuki's dreams, it wouldn't be random if the perfect form has a Yume Nikki feel to it.

Obao is a Uboa parody that has his own page on Facebook and his popularity is growing. Guess which is its catchphrase?: "Obao is love, Obao is life". What did Wilford said after defeating Super Sayian Frollo? "I'm love, I'm life".

As a last proof? What did Frollo draw in his dream diary before his birthday? Uboa with Gaston's face.

Thank you for reading and I would love to see your own theories.

Theory #3:

This will be short and more like a easter egg than an actual theory, but has anybody noticed the Wilford-Lemongrab connection?

First of all, the last ep changed my mind about Wilford. I thought that his rise as main villain was too random because since he was defeated that easily with food in "Follo misses his mother", he hadn't made any notable aparitions and his inclusion to Los No-Frollos was like he hadn't any betrayal plan. Just think that he returned because Yzma restored his energy with a potion.

Now, the actual theory/easter egg: every Lemongrab apparition is linked with Wilford in some way.

-Lemongrab appears in the show for the first time as a cameo saying that The Wilford Show is UNNACEPTABLE.

-He has a major role in "Frollo is too young". Can you remember his death? He suicides in a Madotsuki style after watching Fred's movie. Then we have a "random Wilford moment" with him becoming the jellyfishes.

This is a really clever foreshadowing. Just think on it: Lemongrab dying and Wilford becoming a dream character. Even he appears twice like how he clons himself in the last ep!

-Then they share many scenes on the No-Frollos and, surprisingly, he dies in Wilford's dream world like the "random joke" predicts.

What do you think, coincidence or clever writing?

Aitor Molina vs. Seahorse Seashell Party (English version)

Aitor Molina vs. Seahorse Seashell Party #002... por aitormolina

Egun on guztioi*, Aitor Molina talking to you. You know? I love, love and absolutly love the godamn Spider-man. But this time we aren't going to talk about him, we will cover Family Guy, translated as "Padre de Familia" (Father of Family) in the hispanic countries.

*Egun on guztioi: "Hello everybody" in Vasque.

Yes, I know that not everybody likes this show and it started as a cheap Simpsons copycat. With the pasing of years, the yellow family has lost too much fun and original characteristics until making totally stupid episodes without heart. But the Griffins had offered year after year new eps (episodes) which, sincerely, get better each season. Even its creator, Seth MacFarlane, has earned some privileges on television about what can be shown in a cartoon. That has only happened before with South Park.

I could spend hours talking about how this three series (Simpsons, Family Guy and South Park) had inspired me, but I want to review a single ep in this video: Seahorse Seashell Party. What does this ep have on special? In my opinion, it's one of the finest yet. And what better way to introduce this cartoon with a good ep? Which is a crossover with the other two MacFarlane shows: Cleveland Show and American Dad.

I suppose that you have watched Nostalgia Skapokon's review about The Hurricane where he tells clearly his point: if you don't know beforehand, you won't notice that's a crossover. I don't want to repeat things he said, but I have to confirm that even being a good ep, it doesn't well as a crossover. So let's don't wait any longer to watch the ep.

AM: Since this is the most forced crossover on the universe, I will call a friend to help me.

L: Hi, I'm Lugosi and I've been bribed to criticize this Family Guy ep that starts, obviously, with the intro.

(The Griffins are watching the news, where they say that a tornado will arrive. The TV signal goes and Peter says he wanted to see G.I. José, which is showed in a flashback)

L: What the heck, a G.I. Joe parody?

AM: Oh, I forgot this is FG, so the jokes will be told in flashbacks. They will cut the scene to show other that has nothing to do and they hope we will laugh at that,

L: You have to make a reference to serve as a transition to play the next scene.

AM: Ok... so... this is like... when I ate... fruit for the first time?

(AM eating strawberries)

L: Perfect.

(Brian is hiding mushrooms and he speaks)

L: Wait a minute, the dog and the baby can speak?

AM: Yes, is a thing in the series.

L: I didn't know about these hallucinogen mushrooms. Did you?

AM: Yes, I knew about them... I learnt it by the hard way.

(Vietnam flashback to a death by a mushroom playing Gunshot Awakening)

-I need some life, I need some luck, let's see if I'm lucky, a bit of life, I want that people... a mush... AAAH... I WAS KILLED BY A MUSHROOM... HOW COULD I BE KILLED BY A MUSHROOM... WHAT THE HELL... WHAT'S THIS? A MUSH...

(The Griffins decide to play a game of guessing movies)

L: Yes!

AM: Yesssss!

(Peter shows a movie)

L: The Room!

(Other movie)

AM: Wall-e!

(A strange one with Indian music)

L: Pesadillas del Infierno (Nightmares of Hell)!

AM: Wait a moment, PDI has a movie?

L: Yes, but it was made before the series.

AM: Now I know what will I review the next time.

(After the game, Peter starts making "dad sounds")

L: Eh... ok... what type of jokes are these?

AM: Oh, these, my villanous looking friend, is a bit of "Macfarlenian" humor.

L: What?

AM: Seth is often critiziced because he thinks that making some stupid joke longer will be funnier.

L: Oh, now I get it, like that long and boring scene from Inglorious Basterds.

AM: That's right!

L: So Brian starts hallucinating.

AM: That or he is turning into the Tomelloso Seducer.

L: And now they play finger-shooting.

AM: What amuses me of this joke is that it appears in other ep with different consequences.

(A mime shoots another killing him)

L: Why do they hate the daughter?

AM: Well... let's say that Meg isn't precisely the most popular character, so she's degrade to punching bag throught the seasons.

L: Is that funny?

AM: No, but look, Brian is going to cut his ear!

(He does scaring Lugosi)

L: Oh my God, who can be so demented to enjoy this?

AM: Ok, there you have a Lady Gaga joke.

L: Not fucking fun, is any funny picking on a person just because it's famous?

AM: No... no.

("Epic Gamer meets Thous Carapollen", a YouTubePoop made by AM where a famous Spanish youtuber kicks a fangirl for entertainment purposes)

Epic Gamer: And she falls...

L: Did you insert a clip where you pick on a Spanish celebrity?

AM: Eh... yesh...?

L: But how..? An adult flying-kicks a girl and you laugh at that?

AM: It's violence, violence is fun!

L: I will tell you a story with a violent plot as base.

Once upon a time, there was a Japanese girl called Madotsuki. She liked videogames and violent series, so one day, she took a knife and killed her parents.

L: Tell me, still funny?

AM: I think you're taking this series too seriously.

L: Do you know what? I will show you wrong, I'm here in a moment.

AM: Ok. So Brian starts hallucinating more... confunding Stewie with the Annoying Orange.

AM: Sure... now that Brian is losing his head, we retuuurn to the boring Griffin family.

-And yes, we have another long stupid unnecessary joke that makes no sense and wouldn't lose any fun making it shorter.

-This is not funny to watch, it only makes me wonder how is the Doctor Pandemia spending his time on the Motsukora manga festival.

(Pandemia singing Skyfall)

AM: Poor Meg, I'm feeling sorrier for her than for Euristeus.

(The Griffins dress as aristocrats)

AM: Ohohoh, snob joke!

AM: And now... welcome to the panic dimension, where your biggest nightmares get real, this is by far the best part of the ep, which references Nightmare before Christmas and Evil Dead.

(AM screams after the jumpscare)

AM: So... after... (BRIAN)

AM: FUCK, is there any baby scarier than... (MAMA)

L: I'm back... Aitor?

AM: (traumatized)

L: I suspected it, so much drug, violence and anarchy did you bad.

AM: No, nothing important, it's my fear to the mushroom, I can't take it!

L: Now... is time to defeat your fears... take one of this.

AM: What? Are you crazy? See what happened when touched one, imagine if I had eaten it.

L: Aitor, what killed you wasn't the mushroom, but the surprise. Believe in me or you will be showing that this series suck.

AM: No, Seth MacFarlane has his flaws, but every showrunner have... even me. If I have to hallucinate and suffer to defend my thesis so the show can go on... I will take it.

(Epic hallucination scene)

L: Dr. Pandemia, I got rid of the critic.

Dr.P: Awesome, awesome, there's only a small problem.

L: What?

Dr.P: Do you remember that this was going to be a crossover ep? Let's say that Aitor invited a person who will arrive soon.

L: Nostalgia Skapokon? That's impossible, a hurricane took him.

Dr.P: I mean the Lord of Night, the Dark Knight, the Bat-man...

L: Are you talking about...?

Dr.P: Yes, Cameron Lawson.

P: Who?

Dr.P: Texas Batman!

(There's no point on subtitling what Cameron says since it's in English)

L: Oh, English, fuck, I can't speak it well.

*Look the subtitles*

L: Oh, I see, I'm Lugosi, Aitor is on a trip.

L: So Meg faces her family giving them their own medicine.

L: Yeah, another meaningless joke. Better to continue...

Chorus: Texas Batman just said that! Take it to your home!

L: Now the argument gets intense. I'm not going to cut Meg's monologue because it's a great character exposition and it would develope the series if she actually had chenged after this ep.

L: We will cut the rest not to spoil the ep, I will only tell that all the family gets into.

L: Why? Meg discovered how important she is for the family.

L: Now that you say that, makes sense, but it's only a cartoon, it hasn't any improtance.

L: Wow, you're smart.

L: Finally, Pandemia, Cameron has left and Aitor is still knocked.

Dr.P: Perfect, we can finally put this plan together. When I can escape from this horrible manga convention, I will go there and take the cells I need for the clon. But finish the review, it's not good leaving it unfinshed.

L: Ok, I will end this rubbish.

L: That on real live would be...

-You are a fucking bitch!

L: And to overkill the stupidity, Stewie makes a drug PSA.

L: This shit makes me want to drug myself! What type of cartoon mixs cheap insults, graphical violcence, nudity and eternal jokes to make people laugh? And that pro-harassment message at the end... is the worst lesson I had ever heard! What's worse, MacFarle has another two series with this ep's plot, and they don't look better. You can watch Best Hercules or another Gaiam, Pure Magic, product before this antimoral hallucination.

L: Make me a favour and run away from this shit like it was a palgue.

L: Lugosi had talken to you, the new Dr. Pandemia henchwoman, last one has died by a brain tumor... and the boar is in Mars.

-Will Skapokon be able to survive the hurricane?

-Will Aitor take his mushroom fear or die trying it?

-Will Voltiok be able to finish his part of the crossover?

-Will Pandemia escape from the manga convention?
