I'd rather have another imitator if it meant the character got more lines, and kids wouldn't even notice the difference.

    I honestly didn't even know that Liu was doing the voice when the series began. I assumed it was Kelly Hu. Now I wish they had just gotten Hu so we could actually see some Viper on the show.

    That would explain why Viper isn't getting much screen time. Do we know for a fact the reason is because working around Liu is so difficult and not something else?

    Looks like we'll see Peng again, but strangely in an episode called "Tigress Tale", according to TVGuide.com. Maybe they got the titles mixed up?

    And yes, Viper has been pretty neglected so far... Sometimes I seriously doubt that's Lucy Liu voicing her all the time.

    Three things caught my attention in Kung-Fu Day Care:

    - When Mantis said that Po had the mind of a child, Po never reacted to it. He just said "yup". I'm wondering if a scene with Po retaliating to Mantis was cut or if they just didn't decide to go that route. The next scene did seem to pop up suddenly.

    - Tigress' flashback to Master Shifu seems to be the opposite of what the first movie told. I thought Shifu was reluctant to get close to another young student (even if they showed potential).

    - Tigress seemed to be more motivated when she found out the kid was a prince. Did anyone else spot that?

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious how Tigress' memory of a nice, encouraging Shifu contrasts with her flashback of him being stern and distant from the film.

    Either it was a rare thing for him to be in a good mood, or he became more stern and harsh as time went on. In the episode young Tigress messed up, but in the film she did something right, so maybe Shifu became distant as she became more skilled and reminded him more of Tai Lung. That, or the LoA writers didn't want to confuse people who hadn't seen the film and/or didn't want to present Shifu in a bad light. Regardless, it's certainly a plothole for those who have seen the film.

    What's more, these recent episodes about Tigress seeing Shifu as her father figure makes that comment about her having a crush on him when she was a teen even more awkward... O__o

    So I guess those episodes that were supposed to be today and this week aren't anymore. At least today's episode was replaced with Spongebob and I don't see any new ep for tomorrow.

    I can't think of a way around the kind Shifu flashback. My initial thought was 'What if Shifu raised Tigress and Tai Lung for a brief overlapping time.' We have no reason to believe Shifu was as callous as he was in Tigress' movie flashback before Tai Lung. When Shifu picks Tigress up from the orphanage in SotFF he seems stern, but not cold. Maybe he brought her back after he already began with Tai Lung allowing for Tigress to have those happy memories and know that he used to smile.
