DA02 ep41 recap

Episode recap for Digimon World Tour, Pt. 2.


Joe and Cody arrive in Australia. They find a Control Spire not too far from the shore, and they and their partners attempt to bring it down. "Santa Claus" arrives wearing swim wear and helps them out. After successfully bringing down the Control Spire, they greet each other "Merry Christmas". Santa Claus then reveals himself to be Gennai's Australian counterpart, Hogan. Hogan tells them that the Australian DigiDestined are gathering the Digimon at the Great Barrier Reef, where another Control Spire is located.

They then hear a call for help and see a boy with a Crabmon on a surfboard being chased by a Gesomon, a Shellmon, and an Ebidramon. The boy makes it to shore and introduces himself as Derek. In order to fend off the three hostile Digimon, Joe and Cody have Armadillomon and Ikkakumon threaten to turn the three Digimon into "Digimon Seafood". With one more threat from Crabmon, the three Digimon flee. Ikkakumon, Armadillomon, and Crabmon chase them and Joe, Cody, Derek, and Hogan follow them on a boat.

They chase the three Digimon all the way to the Great Barrier Reef. They spot the Control Spire and stop their chase. They attempt to destroy it, but a Scorpiomon stops them. Joe has Ikkakumon digivolve into Zudomon, Cody has Armadillomon armor digivolve into Submarimon and Derek has Crabmon digivolve into Coelamon. Together, they defeat Scorpiomon and destroy the Control Spire, all without damaging the reef.

Gesomon, Shellmon, and Ebidramon are heard screaming while being chased by the Australian DigiDestined, who have arrived with their partner Digimon and all the Digimon they rounded up. The Australian DigiDestined meet up with Joe, Cody, Derek, and Hogan. Cody sends the Digimon back to the Digital World.

Meanwhile, in Paris, France, Tai and TK meet up with T.K.'s grandfather, Michel. As they ride on Michel's motorcycle with a side cart, they come across Versailles Palace and are surprised to see that the lights are still on. Although, Tai and T.K. are hesitant to enter, calling it trespassing, Michel insists that they are doing the right thing by investigating.

Inside, they see a Mamemon, a BigMamemon and a MetalMamemon having a party. The three Digimon call themselves "The Mamemon Brothers". This outrages Michel. After closer inspection, they find a female DigiDestined and her partner Digimon—a Floramon—being held prisoner by the Digimon. This further angers Michel. Tai and T.K develop a crush on the DigiDestined while Agumon and Patamon develop a crush on the DigiDestined's partner Digimon. Michel confronts the three Digimon and attempts to rescue the captive DigiDestined. The DigiDestined is impressed with Michel's chivalry. However, Michel has a pie thrown at his face. Tai and T.K. try to help, but also have pies thrown at their faces. Agumon and Patamon digivolve to their Champion levels and battle the three Mamemon outside the Versailles Palace, causing a part of the wall to be destroyed in the process. Tai, T.K., and Michel introduce themselves to the DigiDestined. The DigiDestined introduces herself as Catherine.

She explains to them that earlier she and Floramon found a Control Spire near the Seine River and attempted to destroy it, but were ambushed by Giromon and taken captive in Versailles Palace. Giromon arrives along with the Mamemon Brothers to fight Greymon and Angemon. Greymon and Angemon digivolve into MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon, Catherine has her Floramon digivolve into Kiwimon and assists MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon to battle Giromon and the Mamemon Brothers. The opposing Digimon are defeated and fall down from the sky to the Seine River. MagnaAngemon destroys the Control Spire.

The French DigiDestined arrive shortly thereafter with the Digimon loose around France. With the day finally Christmas, they greet Catherine, Tai, T.K. and Michel "Merry Christmas". Catherine greets them back. Tai and T.K steal a kiss to her cheeks, but Michel demonstrates the proper way to kiss a girl by kneeling down and kissing her hand like a proper gentleman.

Meanwhile, back in Japan, Noriko Kawada is with her two unnamed friends. They are concerned with her health and tell her to go home. They bid Noriko goodbye and walk off. As Noriko was about to follow their advice, she sees Arukenimon and follows her to an alley.

Joe: "Cody and I will do the heave, you guys do the ho. And heave!"
Ikkakumon: "Go!"
Joe: "I didn't say go, I said ho!"
Ikkakumon: "Joe?"
Joe: "No! Ho! Ho! Ho!"

—Joe and his partner haven't changed a bit.

"Listen Tai, if my grandfather says he's gonna do something, well, eight times out of ten he's gonna do it."

T.K. assures Tai that his grandfather is a dedicated person.

"Prepare for the battle of Versailles! Okay, the second one!"

T.K.'s grandpa yells a battle cry.

Joe: "Hey, Ikkakumon, are you getting hungry?"
Ikkakumon: "Absolutely! I'm thinking of having a large pizza with Gesomon sausage, Shellmon pepperoni, and extra Ebidramon cheese!"
Gesomon: "Sausage?"
Shellmon: "Pepperoni?"
Ebidramon: "And cheese..."
All 3: "Pizza?"
Ikkakumon: "Don't forget the hot sauce!"
Cody: "Armadillomon, I'll bet you could use a bite."
Armadillomon: "Actually, I'm in the mood for a triple-dip Digimon rice pilaf."
Gesomon: "Triple-dip..."
Shellmon: "Digimon..."
Ebidramon: "Rice..."
All 3: "Pilaf?!"
Derek: "Crabmon, it's working. Why don't you show these guys how we take care of things down under?"
Crabmon: "I kinda like the rice part, but let's spice it up. Jambalaya!"

—The thought of being dinner is more than Gesomon, Shellmon and Ebidramon can handle.

Other notes[]

Continuity errors

  • When Cody and Joe were dropped off in Australia by Imperialdramon Dragon Mode in the previous episode, they were clearly in Sydney, as they were standing in front of the Sydney Opera House. Though, in this episode, they're at the Gold Coast in Queensland (as stated in the original version), which is over 400 miles away.
  • When Armadillomon digivolves to Submarimon, "Warp Digivolve" is heard in the background, rather than "Armor Digivolve", Submarimon also doesn't say "Reliable Guardian of the Sea".
  • In the Japanese version, when Dingo is first shown, he speaks in English, albeit with a clear Japanese accent. After a while, he just speaks in Japanese.
  • At the end of the fight with the Mamemon Brothers, MetalGreymon and MagnaAngemon chase them to the control spire, which MagnaAngemon destroys. However, in Guardian Angel, Angemon immediately de-digivolved to Patamon when in the range of a control spire.
  • Gomamon digivolves to Ikkakumon before the Control Spire is destroyed.
  • The kiss that Tai and T.K gave Catherine was actually more accurate than the one that Michel demonstrated, as the proper gentlemanly way to kiss someone in France is to do so on both the recipient's cheeks.

Animation errors

  • When chasing after Gesomon, Shellmon and Ebidramon, in one shot, Crabmon's body is completely white.
  • When attacking Scorpiomon with his Oxygen Torpedo, we can see Submarimon shoot three but only two hitting Scorpiomon.
  • When Scorpiomon emerges out of the water after his defeat, his mouth is completely red.
  • In a shot of Cody holding his D-3, the orange button is missing.
  • Almost immediately after the scene where T.K. and Tai are pied, their faces are completely clean.
  • The Crest of Hope is shown when Angemon Digivolves, likely due to an editing error.

Dubbing changes

  • The opening theme for this episode has "Digivolve into Ultimate" being said instead of "Armor Digivolve".
  • In the Japanese version, Hogan was originally called Eucalyptus, and Derek was called Dingo.
  • A brief shot of the Mamemon Brothers clinking their wine glasses together was removed from the dub.
  • In the Japanese version, the fact that Catherine can speak fluent Japanese is acknowledged in-universe. In the dub, her fluency in English is not.
  • In the Japanese version, T.K.'s grandfather, Michel, kisses Catherine's hand as his way of greeting her "Merry Christmas". In the English version, he kissed her hand to show Tai and T.K how to properly kiss a lady.
  • A shot of Ikkakumon's Harpoon Torpedo blowing the top off of a Control Spire was edited out early repeats of the dubbed version. The footage was restored in the DVD release.
  • In the Japanese version, Noriko's friends complain about the difficulty of their last test, rather than commenting on Noriko's health.
  • In the original version, during the final scene of the Paris leg, the chosen children, their Digimon, and Michel all wish each other "Merry Christmas" in French (literally "Joyeux Noel"). In the dub, they simply say "goodbye" to each other.

Digimon references

  • This episode features Zudomon battling Scorpiomon, a battle that also took place in the Digimon Adventure episode Sea-Sick and Tired. During both battles, Zudomon needs help from other Digimon to defeat Scorpiomon. In the previous battle, Lillymon helps, while on this occasion Submarimon and Coelamon help.

Real-world references

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Cody, Joe, T.K. and Tai announce the episode title in the Japanese episode.
  • When Derek meets Joe and Cody in the Japanese version, he introduces himself as a "DigiDestiny" instead of a Chosen Child, possibly as a nod to the English dub terminology.
  • In the original Japanese version, Catherine knew how to speak Japanese and had no problems talking to Tai, T.K. and T.K.'s grandfather, Michel.
  • Unlike the main DigiDestined, Tai and T.K. were not assisted by a counterpart of Gennai but were instead assisted by T.K.'s grandfather.
  • Some French phrases used in the episode may be incorrectly applied:
    • Michel confronted BigMamemon and ordered that it be "charged for trespassing and placing you under citizen's arrest, n'est-ce pas?". As "n'est-ce pas" is equivalent to "isn't it?", this no longer becomes an order, but rather asking the other party if it (BigMamemon) agrees to the statement.
    • Giromon introduced itself by saying "Parlez vous Giromon?", which translates to "Do you speak Giromon?"
