Plot Summary

While doing community service hours for school credits, Ron, longing to become more of a hero, finds himself charged with assisting a notoriously difficult and cranky home-bound senior. However, he soon finds out there is more to Timothy North than a bad attitude and a big mansion. Ron finds himself carrying on a legacy of Timothy North's and becoming the Fearless Ferret 2.0 - on the condition that he keeps his identity a secret. The Fearless Ferret's return does not go unnoticed by his old enemy. Meanwhile, Kim knows that something's up and is determined to find out what.

  • Ron: I guess saving the world just isn't enough!

  • Nurse: People, we have a home-bound senior who needs a little spirit lift. He sent three Sunshiners home crying already.
  • Ron: Hmm. Sounds like this fella needs a dose of Ronshine.

  • Timothy: After you get rid of the spiders in here, you can shoo the bats out of the attic.
  • Ron: Oh, I'm beat, sir. Can't I just sit around and listen to you, you know, reminisce about the good old days?
  • Timothy: Eat snowballs.
  • Ron: Was that something he did in the good old days, or something he wants me to do now?

  • Timothy: White Stripe! That fiend!
  • Ron: You know this guy?
  • Timothy: My noxious nemesis. Beware of his stink stream!
  • Ron: I don't even wanna know what that is.

Team Possible's Transportation

  • Timothy North's Ferretmobile


  • This episode is a complete parody of the 1960s live action Batman TV show, as well as the 1999 DCAU animated series Batman Beyond.
    • Adam West, who played the 1960's Batman, voiced the Fearless Ferret, while Ron is voiced by Will Friedle, who also voiced Terrence "Terry" McGinnis, the young Batman in Batman Beyond.
    • The opening theme for Fearless Ferret is extremely similar to that of the 1960s Batman TV show.
    • Ron lying to Kim is very similar to Terry using excuses to get away from his friends and his girlfriend Dana.
  • In the 2002 Spiderman film, a scene is imitated where Ron hangs upside down in front of Kim. In Spiderman, Mary Jane removes his mask part way to reveal Spiderman's lips and kiss them. Kim however, completely removes the mask, busting Ron. Some fans have speculated that this scene might have been intended as a slight tease or foreshadowing to viewers hoping for Kim and Ron to become romantically involved.


  • 29th episode in chronological order.
  • Ron does not know that the Fearless Ferret was an old TV show, because he does not have cable yet. He will finally get cable in the episode Dimension Twist, where he immediately recognizes, by sound, the Fearless Ferret Theme Song.
  • Even if Kim had not instantly recognized Ron's voice, build, and personality while he was dressed as the Fearless Ferret, given his enormous inability to lie convincingly to Kim, he would not have been able to explain why he was still carrying Ron's pager, Rufus, and Ron's microchip.


  • Kim's eye color changed briefly in the ferret-mobile scene when she says: "Only in the old days." after Mr. North said: "Racing to the rescue!".
  • The Lowerton Lemurs football team uniform is an exact match for the Middleton Mad Dogs uniform. The burly player is even an exact match for a Middleton player, except that his hair is black instead of blond.
