Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Aweomeness - The Kung Fu StrangerCollecting seven more episodes of Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Aweomeness, the third DVD release is named for Po‘s (Mick Wingertadventures as a masked vigilante who continues to fight crime after Kung Fu is outlawed. My favorite episode of the collection involves Shifu‘s (Fred Tatasciore) back injury and new bureacracy preventing the Furious Five to use Kung Fu to stop crime which forces Po to impersonate his master while strapping an over-medicated Shifu to his stomach.

Also included on the set are Fung (John DiMaggio) bringing Terra Cotta warriors to life, Po’s mistake which threatens to prolong a war between two gorilla armies, the unexpected difficulties which arise when Mr. Ping (James Hong) temporarily moves into the Jade Palace, the side effects of Mantis (Max Koch) choosing to drink a growth potion, and Po’s prank on Monkey (James Sieblowing up in his face.

Legends of Awesomeness - The Scorpion StingThe second DVD collection of Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness collects half-dozen of the show’s episodes including “Scorpion’s Sting” which was the first episode of the series to air on Nickelodeon as Po (Mick Wingert) and Monkey (James Sie) set out on a quest to the Valley of the Scorpion for the cure to Tigress‘ (Kari Wahlgren) fever.

Other highlights from the collection include Po’s attempts to find a girlfriend for his father (James Hong), Monkey accused of being a thief, Po fearing he may turn evil like a previous member of the Furious Five, Crane (Amir Talai) trying to regain his confidence with Po’s help, misadventures with magic Kung Fu shoes, and Po’s search with his father for a legendary monster.

The random order for these releases is a bit confusing but fans should still enjoy the collection. The only extra on the single-disc DVD is the code to the game app “Scorpion Maze” to unlock power-ups and downloads.
