The Mad Scientist

[exclaiming, grunting]
[dramatic music plays]
[parrot] Mind your heads!
Oh, and your arms.
Legs and feet, too!
[exclaiming, whimpering]
Should we be following
a mad scientist into a volcano?
[Rukhmini] I think that's your answer.
Hey, hey! This way!
Okay, you can put me down now. I can walk.
Are you sure?
I mean, you just got hit by a cannonball.
Yeah. How are you not dead?
[scoffs] I do a lot of yoga.
We don't know what we're running into,
so look sharp, and follow me.
[dramatic music plays]
There you are.
I was starting to get worried.
- Everyone grab a Scorpion.
- [clanking]
Um, excuse me, but
I know, I know.
"Why would she build a lab
inside a volcano?"
- [rumbling]
- [gasps]
Well, it was pretty cool, until today.
[parrot] Whoa.
- [intriguing music plays]
- That rabbit. How does she have that?
[gasps] Are you Lulu?
Who are you?
Name's Akna.
[Akna] And I made that rabbit.
[dramatic music plays]
[suspenseful music plays]
- [wind whistles]
- [ominous music plays]
[grunts] Those bears got in our way
for the last bloody time, they did!
[sing-songy] Where are they?
- [grunts, groans]
- [Klaus grunts, coughs]
Oi. Shut it, will ya?
We've got to get out of here.
We'll suffocate.
But they've got my whip.
Veruca! You lost them.
I what?
- [grunts]
- [whirring]
Say that again.
- [tense music plays]
- [whimpering]
[groans, yells]
Oh, come on. Just having a little laugh!
Fine. We'll search the area.
Blighters couldn't have gotten far.
[Akna] Hang on!
[groans] How do you drive this,
this thing? [grunts]
[Po yells]
What will you do
now that your home blew up?
Oh, uh, that's not my home.
[scoffs] That was just my lab.
[Akna] We're heading to my home now.
- [Po yells]
- [rhythmic music plays]
Getting the hang, getting the hang.
- [yelps]
- [ominous music plays]
[grunts, yelps]
[yelps, groans]
[B'ah] Hey, Team Dragon.
How have you been?
[exhales] Dang it. Ran outta spit.
[heavy footsteps approaching]
Oh! Th-the stolen crops.
You're giving away your loot?
Does that mean this is your
- [soft music plays]
- [birds caw]
[Po] Wait. What happened here?
Ah, so you steal from neighboring towns
to make up for
your hometown's failing crops.
But we only take as much as
we actually need to survive.
Fifteen years ago, my brother
gave me this rabbit, in England,
so how exactly could you have made it?
Well, you get some stuffing,
a little needle and thread Oh! [scoffs]
That's not what you meant.
[chuckles] Akna, get it together.
You knew my brother?
- [soft music plays]
- [sighs]
[Akna] Our farms weren't always like this.
We had enough crops
to eat and share with everyone.
Back then, I spent my days
doing what I loved most:
making toys.
The local children
would come up to me, and be like,
"Akna, Akna, is that your new design?"
Oh, it always made me happy
seeing the smiles on their faces.
[Akna] But then, one day, the rain just
Our crops withered and died,
and-and soon the heat and dry weather
began to take their toll on everyone.
- [suspenseful music plays]
- [groans]
[Akna] Some thought we were cursed,
because our neighbors in Tikal
had more rain than ever.
But I don't believe in curses.
That stuff is junk, if you ask me.
- [thunder crashes]
- [Akna] And then, he arrived.
A knight from far away.
And he was all,
"I'm a knight from far away,
and I've heard stories of a person here
who could ride lightning and stuff."
"You seen anything like that?"
I was all, like,
[scoffs] "Sounds suspicious.
I don't believe that junk."
But then he was like,
"I suspect their power comes from
an ancient weapon, long hidden."
"Here, look at this."
And he shows me all this research
and maps and schematics, and I was like,
"Now that's some junk, sir,
that I can believe."
Then he said, "I need help," and I said,
"So do we."
So we went to Tikal
to ask their leader, Zuma,
if she knew anything
about this lightning weapon person.
And that's where we saw them.
- [dramatic music plays]
- [thunder crashes]
[Akna] Zuma
was the lightning weapon person.
She was using the weapons
to steal our rain!
[Akna] So I turned to Alfie
and I was like, "Oh, what do we do?"
And he was all like, "We are going to
take those wheels and save your town."
But Zuma was like, "Oh, you think so?"
And then she attacked us.
[zapping, whirring]
Oh! [exclaims]
- Intruder!
- Halt!
[tense music plays]
[Akna] Then she was all like,
- I had to do something.
- [dramatic music plays]
[Akna] We got away.
Thank goodness, we got away.
We also knew that Zuma
was gonna come for the wheel eventually,
so Alfie said,
"Stand back, I'm gonna destroy it."
But it was super strong, so I was like,
"Oh, I got some ideas."
[rhythmic music plays]
[suspenseful music plays]
[Akna] But nothing worked,
and we were like, "Oh no, nothing worked!"
And then Alfie got called back to England,
but he said, "Fear not!"
"I shall return soon!"
Or something like that.
I-I don't do voices.
And I said, "Oh, I am worried,
you better be back."
And then
I gave him a souvenir for
that kid sister he always talked about.
[soft music plays]
[Akna] You look a lot like him.
How is he?
[somber music plays]
He, he was killed.
Oh. Oh, wow.
Well [chuckling]
I guess that's why he never wrote.
So, my brother was here?
And he knew about the Tianshang Weapons.
Mind blown.
Akna, you saved us
from the very villains who killed Alfie.
I did?
My brother was trying to
save us all from these weapons,
and instead, those weasels killed him.
But I can eliminate them
right now, once and for all.
I just need something
powerful enough to match them.
So, please,
give me the Storm Wheel.
[chuckles] I-I don't have it.
- What?
- [groans] Of course she doesn't.
A-Alfie thought he knew
someone who could destroy it.
In England.
- Ah.
- What?
He took it to England?
No, no, no.
Ooh, I hate giving bad news.
[groans] Klaus and Veruca
are here right now!
If I just had
one of those Tianshang Weapons,
I could just [gasps]
- [grunts] Absolutely not.
- [yelps]
If anyone's getting those weasels,
it's me.
We can't fight them.
But we can stop them
from getting what they want.
We can destroy the weapons,
just like your brother wanted.
We will finish his mission, I promise.
Starting with that other Storm Wheel.
Hate to be a wet blanket, okay,
but if you want to take
that wheel from Zuma,
you'll have to pry it
from her cold, dead hands.
Trust me. Been trying for years.
- What about the Scorpions?
- Oh, we'd need a lot more. Yeah.
With more armor,
more pilots, and more time.
Plus, my lab's kinda melted now. What?
- [Akna chuckles]
- Mm-hmm
[gasps] I don't have more time,
but I do have more scientists.
[dramatic music plays]
Morning. Heyyo.
- [slurping]
- Hey!
- [dramatic music plays]
- [spits] Oh no!
My calculations were off!
The Scorpions are here! Attack! Attack!
[Po] Pelpel!
Pelpel! Pelpel!
It's us, it's us!
- P Wha Po?
- Huh?
- [yelps]
- Whoa! Cool it with the arrows!
- Uh
- [awkward chuckling]
What are you doing on these machines?
Did you find the scum who created them?
Did you defeat
the architect of our torment?
[Po] Mm
They did it! They did it!
- We're free! We're free!
- [cheering]
Uh We met the architect of your torment,
and, uh, you know,
she was actually pretty cool, right?
- Woo-hoo-hoo!
- Yes!
- [male frog 1] W-Wha
- [male frog 2] Huh?
[gasps] Water thieves!
[chuckles awkwardly]
[dramatic music plays]
[Klaus grunts]
See anything yet?
No! And for the record,
it would be much easier to look
if we just walked!
Not how the ship works, little brother!
[chuckling] Also, it's funny.
[intriguing music plays]
- [Klaus] There!
- [gasps]
[suspenseful music plays]
- [laughs]
- [Klaus] Please!
Can I come up now?
[Veruca] What? 'Course not!
Need your eyes on the ground
to follow the trail!
Also, it's funny. [chuckles]
- [wails]
- [crashing]
Nope! Nope, it's just not possible.
We've lived in fear
of those machines for years,
and the Protector is
the only one who's kept us safe.
Now you want me to believe
that the Mad Scientist is a toymaker,
and the Protector is Zuma?
Ludicrous! Ludicrous! [gasps]
[soft music plays]
Did you know we ran out of water years ago
while you've had more than enough?
- No.
- No.
[male frogs] No. No way. Of course not.
Maybe we heard rumors,
but we never took anything from you.
But you knew we needed help,
and you chose not to.
Well, I, uh
What is that?
[dramatic music plays]
The weasels.
The ones who killed Alfie?
Blade, wait.
This is a bad idea.
They've got the weapons.
I missed my chance once.
We need to be smart about this.
[Pelpel] You need to hide.
[yelps, groans]
Where's the pandy?
That depends on
your definition of "pandy."
Don't play dumb.
Tracks led us right here, they did.
Uh, well, of course they did. We've been
terrorized by these things for months.
We defeated two of them today.
Bully for you.
So where are the pilots?
Pilots? Um, gone. They're gone. Ran away.
[suspenseful music plays]
Let's try this again, Frogsy.
And if we find out you're lying,
oh, I'll just be so, so upset.
[grunts] What's up here?
- Why don't you think real hard.
- [croaks]
You're sure you didn't see
any bearsy-wearsies around?
Uh, right. Bears.
Uh, let me think. [croaks]
- [footsteps overhead]
- [Klaus] Nope, nothing.
- I don't see any bears up here.
- [shushing]
Uh, wh-what's he doing?
I think he's stalling.
This tiny toad
thinks he's running the show.
If we keep poking around [grunts]
- I think we'll find something.
- [yelps]
Enough. This is my chance.
I can avenge Alfie right now.
Blade, the weapons
will destroy Pelpel's farm.
Innocent people will get hurt.
Is that really worth you getting revenge?
Of course it is.
[tense music plays]
Listen, frog.
You don't want to know
what my sister's like when she's angry.
So, you best give them up now.
Yeah. This is me mildly frustrated,
but it's getting worse by the second!
Last chance, Frogsy.
[gasps, croaks]
[suspenseful music plays]
Uh [yelps]
He's going to give us up.
Yeah. Spit it out now.
Uh Let me think.
Now I'm angry.
- Let's walk it off, shall we?
- [yelps]
[tense music plays]
Oh! P-Po! She's making him walk the plank!
On a flying ship?
[exclaims] Why are they so evil?
[stirring music plays]
- [thunder crashing]
- [whimpering]
What the devil?
[Veruca] Who are you supposed to be?
[scoffs] Hello?
I'm the Protector. I'm here to protect.
Ah, I knew you'd come!
[laughs] Well, how about that!
Looks like the wheels came to us!
Lucky, lucky.
Yeah, I'll have him back now.
Come and take him, sis.
- [grunting]
- Oh, you're fun.
Missed me.
Missed me again.
Wow. And this is me going slow.
- [laughing]
- Now we're talking. [laughs] Oops!
- [grunts, gasps]
- [laughs] Gotcha!
- [whirring]
- [yells]
[dramatic music plays]
Dad, Akna, could you fly us up there?
[spluttering] Uh, sorry.
Birds have hollow bones, and there's
this whole wingspan thing, I-I can't
And I have osteoporosis.
[chuckles] You went down quick.
How dare? What the heck is that thing?
Wouldn't you like to know?
Okay, fun.
Uh, uh, uh.
- [whirring, creaking]
- [exclaims]
[whirring, creaking]
- [cackles]
- [Zuma laughs]
Wait, why are you laughing?
Love the look.
[thunder crashes]
- [whirring]
- I think I'll have it.
'Cause I love this for me.
[faint ringing]
[dramatic music plays]
Ooh, it's not personal.
[Zuma] Gotta keep my secret.
But like, you understand, right?
[screaming continues]
Ooh, that's a lot of g-force!
- [exclaims, croaks]
- [groans] Gotcha.
[Klaus and Veruca yell]
[exclaims] Zuma is the Protector!
Everything they said is true.
[soft music plays]
Am I mistaken,
or does that loud jaguar
have three weapons now?
Taking her down won't be easy,
but now that
all the weapons are in one place,
we know what we need to do.
[atmospheric music plays]
Maybe you were right.
We had the drop
on Klaus and Veruca in the hut.
They had the weapons. Nothing was certain.
They don't have them now.
I'm coming with you.
A knight needs her squire, right?
[emotional music plays]
They need you.
I can do this.
[rousing music plays]
[rhythmic music plays]
