Memorable Quotes Edit
Shego: I am EVIL! Have I made myself clear?
Ron: That is the second biggest flamingo I have ever seen.
Drakken: (Addressing Shego) Uh, I believe some introductions are in order here. (Ron then runs up to Dr. Drakken to shake his hand.)
Ron: I'm Ron Stoppable. We've met before, but you never seem to remember my name.
- 38th episode aired.
- 35th episode in chronological order.
- We discover that Shego was a superheroine in the past.
- We discover that Shego's glowing hands are not the result of "clawed gloves that shoot out destructive rays" as reported on Kim's website at DisneyChannel.com, but are in fact super powers bestowed by the multicolor meteorite that gave Team Go their powers.
- Of course, those who ran the website were not the Producers or Writers of the show, so the canonical authenticity was always suspect.
- Hego tells Kim and Ron that only a member of Team Go can enable the Main Entrance of the Go Tower with the glow of their powers.
- What Hego actually says is, "Only a member of Team Go can open this door." The implication is clearly that a Team Go power is needed to open the door from the outside. But just minutes later, Hego opens the door from within the tower for Mego, and neither has their power at the time. So in theory, Ron or even Rufus could have opened the door just as easily, so long as they were already in the tower.
Production Information Edit
- Go Team Go is the 40th episode of Kim Possible in production order.
- When Kim forces Condor to crash, the Salsa Parade is destroyed. However, when Avarius leaves, the Salsa Parade is still intact (on the left side of the screen).
- When Kim and Shego fall on the floor after Aviarius drains their powers, the colours on Shego's suit are reversed.
- The black that tops Shego's collar is missing for most, if not all, of this episode. (There never was any black topping her collar, at most there was a black button and off to the side was the rest of the coloring fromt the other side of her jumpsuit)
- When Kim shot her grappler around The Flamingo of Doom, Kim's shade of lipstick is red. But when she lands, her lipstick is once again orange.
- Ron's gloves are missing when the hummingbirds are released, and again when Rufus slams into his face.
- Team Go may be an allusion to many superhero teams of the past but perhaps most prominently the various Japanese Sentai teams with their often color-coded outfits, and usually a single female member.
- Go Tower bears a resemblance to the "T" shaped tower utilized by the Teen Titans.
- Ron says "That is the second largest flamingo I have ever seen!". This is a variation on a running gag in Lucasarts' "Monkey Island" series of computer games, sparked by a line in the first: "That's the second biggest monkey head I've ever seen!". Appropriate, given Ron's fear of monkeys.
- Actually that line, as well as the LucasArts running gag, are allusions to the 60s Classic Get Smart series where Don Adams' Agent 86 Maxwell Smart would say, "That is the second largest [whatever] I've ever seen!"
- Hego says: "Those powers are a great responsibility". This bears strong resemblance to the classic line from Amazing Fantasy #15 (The first appearance of Spider-Man) and subsequently repeated in several Spider-Man issues and the Spider-Man movie, first coined by the great Stan Lee, "With Great Power must come...Great Responsibility."
- When dressed normally Hego bears a striking resemblance to Superman's alter-ego Clark Kent, as does his "boyscout" idealism.
