Escargoon's appearances in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!  
Episode Image Role Role details Selected quote Notes
Kirby Comes to Cappy Town
E1 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon stops the crowd at the gate of the castle throne room to receive their complaints toward King Dedede, and acts dismissively towards them. Later on, he drives King Dedede to Kabu Canyon in the Armored Vehicle where they attempt to silence Kabu, but are interrupted when Kirby crashes into the kingdom in his starship. When King Dedede initially fails to get rid of Kirby, Escargoon comes up with the plan to take the starship to the castle and rig it with explosives. In the process, they find Kirby's Warp Star, but lose it shortly thereafter. Later on, after Octacon is defeated, Escargoon carries out his plan and detonates the explosives in Kirby's starship as he tries to depart, but all this ends up doing is causing the ship to crash into their Armored Vehicle and wrecking it, resulting in Escargoon being chased around angrily by Dedede and forcing Kirby to stay in Dream Land. "That's King Dedede!" (in response to the villagers describing the monster)
A Blockbuster Battle
E2 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon follows King Dedede's lead as they play various tricks to sabotage Kirby's attempt to move in with any of the people in Cappy Town. Later on, he helps King Dedede strike a deal with Tokkori to make sure Kirby doesn't set up in the countryside either. After they destroy the treehouse that was built for Kirby, the two release the monster Blocky to attack him. When Blocky is eventually defeated, King Dedede lets out his frustration by abusing Escargoon. "If they find Kirby a place to live, pretty soon, every face in town will be pink!"
Kirby's Duel Role
E3 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede as they spy on Meta Knight's duel with Kirby in Kabu Canyon, and then head back to the castle to call the monster Bugzzy to finish the job. When they return to the canyon with the monster on tow, they are left to watch as Kirby eventually overcomes the monster using the Sword ability. When they confront Meta Knight and demand he finish the job, he knocks their car away "for their safety". "Keep your nose out of the King's business...if you even have a nose."
A Dark & Stormy Knight
E4 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon does little more than tag along with King Dedede during his scenes, and drive the Armored Vehicle as usual. "You've been aiding an alien, you traitor!"
Beware: Whispy Woods!
E5 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede in most of his scenes and helps him spy on Kirby and the kids as they venture into Whispy Woods Forest, in hopes that they will lead them to Whispy Woods himself. This plan ends up succeeding, giving Dedede the opening he needed to cut down Whispy Woods and build a country club in his place. Escargoon gives the opening remarks to the unhappy crowd as Dedede lines up for his first shot, but this is foiled when Kirby coughs up the apples that end up rejuvenating Whispy Woods. The tree then takes action on King Dedede and Escargoon, snaring them with his roots and then forcing them to wander lost in the rejuvenated forest. "For too long, Dream Land suffered from the lack of a world-class golf facility, but once again our visionary King Dedede has taken wise, yet bold action! We now have this taxpayer-supported, closed-to-the-public, chemically-fertilized course where Whispy Woods once stood!"
Un-Reality TV
E6 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon takes the helm in directing the programming for the newly-set-up Channel DDD, as well as starring in many of Dedede's homebrewed shows. He also takes charge in the surveillance of all the Dream Landers through their TV sets. Later on, it is revealed that Escargoon was inside a rubber suit made to resemble a giant monster that was being used through the TV broadcast to fool the town into thinking that a monster was actually attacking the kingdom. With the help of Kirby, Tuff, and Meta Knight, Tiff exposes this ruse and Escargoon in front of the camera. "Here are the shows that'll keep ya stuck to your vinyl recliners! At 7, it's the adventures of that very heavyweight crime fighter 3-D Man! At 7:30, watch as contestants compete for cash and prizes on Wheel of Head Wounds! Then at 8, the staff of D R confronts an outbreak of hernias...bad ones! Next, the far east meets the old west when King of the Kitchen cooks beef jerky-aki! Then at 9:30, the Snail Hunter searches for my long-lost brother! At 10, the crew of the S.S. Dede-prise deals with some very intense motion sickness on Dededeep Space Nine! Tonight's late movie is Globzilla Destroys Guam and the late-late movie is King Klong Vs. the Houston Astros?!" *sigh* "Stay where you are, we'll be back after this..." *faints*
Kirby's Egg-Cellent Adventure
E7 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon is forced to watch King Dedede as he watches birds, when the two of them encounter Dyna Blade passing by. Seeing this, the two hatch a plan to trick Kirby into eating Dyna Blade's egg, and this appears to succeed after they lure Kirby up the mountain to the nest and leave him to it. Later on, Escargoon drives the Armored Vehicle as King Dedede pours oil on the grass to paint an image of Kirby eating the egg for Dyna Blade to see. From there, they sit back and watch as Dyna Blade chases through the kingdom in pursuit of Kirby. When Tiff calls the Warp Star to help Kirby out, Dedede and Escargoon attempt to fire at it with their mounted gun, but this only incurs the wrath of Dyna Blade, who wrecks their car. "Ditch the decoy, I'm watching my waistline!"
Curio's Curious Discovery
E8 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies Dedede during his various scenes, and occasionally mocks him when things don't go his way, particularly in the opening when nobody comes to the anniversary of his coronation. He drives King Dedede around in the Armored Vehicle as usual, and also helps him corner Tiff and Kirby when they try to infiltrate the presentation of Professor Curio's fake archaeological findings. Later on, when Dedede Stone starts attacking, King Dedede and Escargoon can be seen riding atop it, and end up being buried in the rubble when the monster is defeated. "Hear ye, citizens of Dream Land! All rise and salute his most miserly and right rancorous Majesty! The 17,052nd ruler in his line, his Highness King Dedede!"
The Fofa Factor
E9 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon tries to order Fololo & Falala to get King Dedede's fortune from Mabel, but is refused due to his and the King's insistence that only one of them go. Later on, when a Waddle Dee brings the fortune in their stead, Escargoon is promptly clobbered by Dedede when he reads the fortune back. Ignoring the fortune, King Dedede orders the monster Slice n' Splice from Night Mare Enterprises and decides to test it out on his snail assistant first. When Escargoon tries to flee, he gets mixed up with King Dedede, and then the two get "mixed up" by Slice n' Splice. Seeing their heads on each-others' bodies, the two decide to go out into the town and have some fun doing similar to the other Dream Landers. In the process, Escargoon gets his head attached to a sheep, but is eventually returned to normal in time to ferry Slice n' Splice to Kirby's position using the Armored Vehicle. After Kirby is split up, Escargoon assists in trying to corner Fololo & Falala while they try to keep the two separate Kirbys safe, but has little success. "Why'd you have to mix us all up with sheep? I know you like fleecing your subjects, but this is ridiculous!"
Hail to the Chief
E10 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede and drives him around in the Armored Vehicle, getting mixed up in the traffic incident that calls Chief Bookem's reputation into question. Later on, when the town rallies to defend their police chief, Escargoon ends up with a hornet's nest planted directly on his face by accident by Kirby, which causes him to panic and drive off with Tuff in tow in the Armored Vehicle, setting the stage for the episode's climax. After Chief Bookem and Tuff escape the Booma-Dooma Volcano, Dedede and Escargoon try to show up to fire Bookem one more time, but are stopped first by Kirby, and then by the bees' nest lodged in their car's cannon. "You could have been hurt in that crash, but luckily, your stomach acts as a built-in air bag."
The Big Taste Test
E11 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon delivers the news to King Dedede that the famous Chef Shiitake is coming to Dream Land, only to have the King think to prepare his snail assistant as the meal to impress the chef. To get Dedede off of him, Escargoon proposes that they hire a professional chef instead. They head down to Kawasaki's and hire the chef to come cook at the castle, much to his disbelief. Err long, however, Escargoon and King Dedede berate Kawasaki for his abysmal cooking, and decide to order a cookbook from Night Mare Enterprises to speed things up. When they see the entry about Zebon, Dedede and Escargoon hatch a plan to trick Kawasaki into thinking that Kirby is a Zebon, and he must cook him to impress his former master. With this deed done, King Dedede and Escargoon receive Shiitake and wait on him for the dinner. Escargoon's role for the remainder of the episode is merely as a bystander. "Assault with pepper!" *chuckles*
Escargoon Squad
E12 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon initiates the events by taking a picture of King Dedede with a new camera, only to find out that the picture contains the imprint of a ghost. Escargoon later drives King Dedede down to have his fortune read by Mabel, who confirms that a ghost is haunting King Dedede. The two try to play it cool, but then strange happenings start to occur around the castle as night sets in, and everyone comes to tell their own stories about them. At this point, Escargoon decides to part company with Dedede, and outright refuses to help him further with the ghost situation, but Dedede forces him to take part regardless after busting down the door to the snail's room with his hammer. Regardless, Escargoon disappears after King Dedede takes a bathroom break, leaving him to be haunted by the ghost. Later on, it is revealed that Escargoon was playing a series of pranks on King Dedede with the help of some of the kids and Kirby to get back at him for all the times the King scared him in the past. King Dedede feigns forgiveness to get his snail assistant's guard down, and then starts chasing him down threatening to whack him. As Escargoon makes a run for it, another ghost appears, but this time it is not one of Escargoon's tricks, and it forces King Dedede to pay his overdue bill to N.M.E. Despite this, King Dedede still proceeds to get his revenge on Escargoon. "The other night, I went to the library and he scared the Dewey Decimal outta me!"
Cappy New Year
E13 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede and helps him plan his New Years fireworks show, all the while pleading with him to let him use his rocket to get rid of Kirby instead of spending more money on N.M.E.'s monsters. While they are discussing the rocket, King Dedede and Escargoon manage to capture Kirby and the kids spying on them, and use a robotic grabber arm to punish Kirby for this. Later on, as the battle between Kirby and Sasuke is underway, the monster makes use of Escargoon's rocket when its initial plan fails. When the rocket is in the air, Escargoon orders the soldiers to fire upon it in order to destroy Kirby, but this ends up too late. The remnants of the rocket come falling down and crush the Armored Vehicle while King Dedede and Escargoon are still inside. "Maybe now, you'll wise up! Why bankrupt yourself buying monsters when you got a genius like me workin' for ya?"
The Pillow Case
E14 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, King Dedede and Escargoon hatch a plan to get rid of Kirby by inducing nightmares about him into everyone in Dream Land via N.M.E.'s specialty pillows. Curious to see if they work, King Dedede and Escargoon themselves sleep on the pillows, and are later among the possessed mob. At the end of the episode, when Meta Knight reveals the trick of the pillows to everyone, King Dedede and Escargoon are more relieved to be free of the nightmares than disappointed. "Sire, they're from Night Mare Enterprises. When did anything that came from them ever work?"
Kirby's Pet Peeve
E15 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon spends most of his screen time tending to King Dedede in various ways, whether that be driving him around in the Armored Vehicle or serving him dinner at the castle. He also assists Dedede in trying to kidnap Kirby's new Electronic Pet, and is later with Dedede when the pet self-destructs on them. "And so I says I'm not goin' skinny dipping!"
A Fish Called Kine
E16 Escargoon.png
Secondary character Escargoon does not have any significant appearances in this episode aside from his proximity to King Dedede. His main contribution comes in the form of occasional one-liners and piloting the submarine that King Dedede is using to bulldoze the Rainbow Coral Reef. "No offense, Your Majesty, but that get-up makes you look like a deep-sea doofus, and besides, you only need a snorkel outside the submarine, not inside!"
The Thing About the Ring
E17 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon is with King Dedede as he is spying on the kids, trying to make sense of their plans. Later on, after a Waddle Dee finds the ring that Kirby spat out the window, Escargoon confiscates the ring, hoping to add it to his secret jewelry collection. Before he does this, however, he takes it to Mabel so she can appraise it, but she tells him that the ring is a fake, made of glass, convincing him to part with it. Later on, when Sir Ebrum asks Escargoon about the ring, he points them toward Mabel and heads back to the castle to tend to his jewelry collection, shortly thereafter having to hide it when King Dedede comes barging into the room demanding to know where the ring is. When Escargoon answers in the negative, King Dedede orders the monster Honker Stomper to help him find it, and the monster proves his worth by immediately locating Escargoon's jewelry stash, much to the snail's horror. Escargoon's role for the remainder of the episode is incidental. "There you are, my twinkling little treasures! I bet none of you's made of glass! Little does King Greedede know I've been collecting you glittery goo-gahs for years!"
Flower Power
E18 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon drives King Dedede and a Noddy down into town where the Noddy is sent after Kirby. When Kirby falls asleep after eating the Noddy, the two laugh and drive away. Later on, the two discuss the next part of the plan back at Castle Dedede as it is set in motion, and are not seen for the remainder of the episode. "So long, Cappy Town. Hello, Nappy Town!"
Here Comes the Son
E19 Escargoon.png
Secondary character Escargoon has an incidental role in this episode, as he does little more than accompany King Dedede and drive the Armored Vehicle. As usual, he has a few one-liners here and there. When Knuckle Joe shows up to attack Kirby, Escargoon apprehends Tiff and ties her up to prevent her calling the Warp Star, but is soon on the sidelines again after Meta Knight shows up. "Hey, wise guy! This is a king you're talkin' about! You can't insult him because he's fat, or because he's a big ignoramus, or because he's a tight-wad!"
Dedede's Snow Job
E20 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon mainly sticks to King Dedede's side as the two banter, first about the heat, then about their plans to do away with Kirby. Later on, when the Ice Dragon is defeated, both King Dedede and Escargoon are buried by the icy remnants of the monster, and can later be seen sleeping in a pile on the ground when Dream Land's climate returns to normal. "Heh! He turned steamin' Dream Land into a winter wonderland!"
A Princess in Dis-Dress
E21 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon is largely on the sidelines, sharing the spotlight with King Dedede where he can. His stand-out appearance is when King Dedede forces him to dress up as a princess in order to help him rehearse his proposal to Princess Rona. "Are you sure? He knows where all the hot spots are! He knows where you can get a pizza at 3 in the morning!"
Island of the Lost Warrior
E22 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon's main role is to drive the amphibious assault vehicle which carries the Armored Vehicle onto the titular island, where he and King Dedede release the monster Tornadon to finish the job they started by stranding Kirby and the kids on the island in the first place. When Kirby defeats Tornadon using Tornado, he also tosses King Dedede and Escargoon out to sea, where they are attacked by a school of Joes. "According to my calculations, our storm should have washed them ashore here."
The Empty Nest Mess
E23 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon reveals to King Dedede an invention of his called "Insta-Monster Mixture", which he promptly demonstrates on a small garden caterpillar to turn it into a giant monster. The two then later hatch a plan to use the mixture on Dyna Blade's chick, and head to the nest to kidnap the baby bird, but they end up fumbling this attempt, allowing the bird to escape into the countryside. King Dedede and Escargoon then set out to recapture the chick, and are eventually successful, bringing it back to the castle as Kirby and the others pursue. Before Escargoon can inject the chick with the mixture, Dyna Blade shows up and knocks his giant syringe aside, and then punishes him and King Dedede by dropping them both from the sky. "Let me hang on! Maybe your belly'll break our fall!"
Ninja Binge
E24 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede as they are first harassed by the Cappies dressed as ninjas, and then they themselves play at being ninjas in the castle after stealing the ninja scroll that started the fad from Curio. Later on, Tuff and Kirby manage to steal the scroll back from Escargoon while he is sleeping, but the lot of them are witness to Benikage unsuccessfully trying to take the scroll back. Escargoon's role in the episode from this point on is incidental. "I shoulda known I'd take a plunge if I used plungers!"
Escargoon Rules
E25 Escargoon.png
Primary character Escargoon plays a leading role in this episode, starting by berating Kirby and his friends in the castle and lording his position over them, and then immediately changing his tune and begging them for help when he realizes that his mother is coming to visit. He begs them to help him pretend to be King of Dream Land for the day she's in town, and although Tiff is initially hesitant, her parents talk her into it for Escargoon's mother's sake. Just as Escergoon's mother arrives in town, Escargoon sends Kirby in to buy him some time and convinces the town to play in on the charade. When they meet up, they travel down the town in a precession on the Armored Vehicle as Escargoon wears a shoddy-looking crown and an unconvincing stern look on his face.

Eventually this precession arrives at Castle Dedede, where Escargoon's ruse is nearly broken by King Dedede, only for Tiff to save the situation by explaining that Dedede is the court jester, meant to say absurd things. Later on, Tiff manages to get King Dedede to play along with the ruse, but only until Dedede hatches a revenge scheme by telling Escargoon's mother all about the nasty monsters her son has sent upon the kingdom, and then compounding this by releasing a horde of Drifter monsters on the crowd to attack everyone. After Kirby deals with the situation and punishes King Dedede, Escargoon admits to his mother that the whole thing was a ruse, and that he is not really king, and his mother forgives him for it. After Escargoon's mother leaves the kingdom, Escargoon quickly drops his sympathetic act and reverts to his usual nasty temperament.

"Pipe down, peasants, or I'll have your tax returns audited!"
Hour of the WolfWrath
E26 Escargoon.png
Secondary character Escargoon only has an incidental role in this episode, sticking close to King Dedede and commenting on the situation as WolfWrath wreaks havoc in the castle. Later on, Escargoon uses his surveillance network in the castle to see how bad the fires have gotten, and reports this to Dedede, who relents and brings the castle out of lockdown, allowing WolfWrath to escape. "Ah. I don't think it's housebroken!"
The Flower Plot
E27 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede and helps him spy on Kirby and the kids using the Grasshopper Eavesdropper as they enter the forest. After gathering the intelligence they needed, the two then step in and steal Whispy Woods' flower Lovely under a smokescreen. When Lovely is returned to Whispy Woods - having been turned into a monster - King Dedede and Escargoon later return with their Armored Vehicle to monitor the situation and ensure things go to plan, but they are foiled when Kirby inhales the cannonball they shot at the tree and returns it to them. "The flower monster's suckin' all the life force out of Whispy just like we planned!"
Labor Daze
E28 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon helps to oversee the factory that King Dedede had built in Cappy Town to exploit cheap labor from the Cappies, handling the logistics and handing out the uniforms to the workers. Later on, King Dedede and Escargoon together pilot the Ice Dragon Robot that the Cappies had unwittingly helped them build. Shortly after revealing the robot, the two are roundly defeated by Kirby when he uses the Ice ability to critically damage the factory's boiler and cause a meltdown, destroying the factory and taking the robot with it. "There are your new uniforms...and wear some undergarments!"
A Spice Odyssey
E29 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon plays an incidental role as he accompanies King Dedede in his scenes and helps him manage Monsieur Goan's restaurant, as well as partake in Goan's plan to defeat Kirby. Later on, after Monsieur Goan is defeated and his restaurant reduced to ash, King Dedede and Escargoon are publicly punished by Cappy Town by being forced to eat Chef Kawasaki's Toxic Atomic Curry, which reduces them to cinders. "But Majesty, we've got other choices: Instant noodles, cat food, crunchy liver-and-bacon-flavored dog treats, hmm?"
Hatch Me If You Can
E30 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon helps King Dedede hatch a scheme to plant a Galbo egg in Kirby's nest and make him believe the egg is his. The two later taunt Tiff in relation to the plan when she is trying to figure out what is going on. Once they see that Kirby has bonded with the creature, King Dedede and Escargoon then initiate phase 2 of the plan by calling in the mother Galbo from the Night Mare Enterprises Teleporter to attack Kirby. They do not significantly impact the remainder of the episode after this point. "Reading up on egg-xistentialism?"
Abusement Park
E31 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon helps King Dedede announce the opening of an amusement park inside the castle, which everyone in Dream Land is invited to attend. Once everyone has arrived, King Dedede and Escargoon get out onto a float and start dancing to commemorate the start of the party. After this, Escargoon retreats to a control room where he proceeds to sabotage the rides that Kirby and his friends are on, which eventually throws them into the depths of the castle underground where they are beset by traps. Later, when this plan fails, Dedede and Escargoon order a monster from N.M.E., but all they end up getting is the harmless monster Walky. The N.M.E. Sales Guy tells them to host a karaoke event with it and lure Kirby up to the teleporter so he can be beamed over to N.M.E. and dealt with personally. Escargoon mocks this plan by getting up onto the "stage" and pretending to sing, but ends up becoming the demonstration when he is beamed away and then sent back in rough condition. Later on, after Mike Kirby foils this plan and destroys Castle Dedede, when he emerges from the rubble, he scares Walky away, and then Dedede and Escargoon run for the hills as well to get away from Kirby's singing. "Let me get this straight! All we have to do is get Kirby up here and have him sing a song?!" *mock-singing* "Iii-- ain't nothing but a pink blob; suckin' all the tiiime!" *gets teleported*
A Dental Dilemma
E32 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, King Dedede takes Escargoon to have his teeth drilled by Doctor Yabui when it is revealed that he has cavities, and Dedede mocks every painful step of the process. After the procedure is over, Escargoon reminds Dedede to mind his own teeth, but Dedede laughs him off, insisting his teeth are in perfect shape. Escargoon is later prevented from purchasing toothpaste at Tuggle's store because Dedede wants to see him suffer more. Later in the castle, Dedede gorges himself on sugary snacks while Escargoon gives him a final warning regarding his dental hygiene, but Dedede continues to dismiss him. When, the next day, Dedede has manifested symptoms of tooth decay, Escargoon is quick to throw Dedede's treatment of him the previous day right back in his face, and drags his King off to Yabui's against his will.

After Dedede escapes the clinic, having avoided treatment and momentarily doused his pain with painkillers, he soon doubles over in agony when they eventually wear off. Escargoon's plan to rectify this is to smash Dedede's foot in with his own hammer, insisting that he won't care about his toothache anymore if he has pain somewhere else. Soon Dedede understands his assistant's intentions, and runs away to avoid further blows. Later on, Dedede turns right around and hides behind Escargoon after he realizes the dentist monster he ordered from N.M.E. operates "without anesthetic". Once this monster is taken care of, Escargoon and Tuff both swear to each-other to always brush their teeth going forward.

"You'll forget about your teeth if you have pain somewhere else!"
Junk Jam
E33 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon does his best to keep the Armored Vehicle and King Dedede clean as more and more garbage fills up the kingdom, but is ultimately unable to do so. Aside from this, he is little more than a bystander in the proceedings. "His Highness loves littering, but this is ridiculous!"
A Recipe for Disaster
E34 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon bursts into King Dedede's throne room to tell Dedede that the real Chef Shiitake is visiting Dream Land, and the two quickly make plans to invite the chef to the castle to cook for them. Once this is done, the two set up a cooking show for Chef Shiitake to demonstrate his skills to the Dream Landers, with King Dedede and Escargoon sitting as part of the judging team. Later on, when Kirby has swallowed a container of "Gijira extract", he imagines Escargoon to be a plate of roasted escargot and chases after him and the others. Later on, when the monster Cobgoblin is defeated, Escargoon comments on the mound of popcorn that resulted. "With Kawasaki's cooking, I hope there's a doctor in the house."
The Kirby Derby - Part I
E35 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon and King Dedede are antagonized by Tuff when he rides them down using a go-cart in town, which is the impetus for the two to retreat to the castle and order a new car from N.M.E. in order to exact revenge. The two then announce a grand prix race in Dream Land and invite anyone to participate, hoping that Kirby will. They soon get their wish when they see that Meta Knight has repaired Kirby's Starship for this specific purpose. On race day, Escargoon joins King Dedede in the driver's seat for their new racecar and begins the race. The two then proceed to start setting off traps using the weapons on their car for the others. "Well it sure beats that tacky tank we used to drive."
The Kirby Derby - Part II
E36 Escargoon.png
Primary character Following from the previous episode, Escargoon continues to drive the Royal Racecar as part of a team with King Dedede, and helps the King set up traps and weapons to try and foil the other racers, Kirby in particular. With the help of these dirty tactics, Escargoon manages to keep the Royal Racecar in the lead for the majority of the race. Eventually, they all brake to watch as Kirby's vehicle plummets toward a crevasse, but Kirby manages to pull through and get his starship into the air, foiling Dedede's plans. Shortly thereafter, Kirby gains the Wheel ability and uses it to wreck the Royal Racecar, forcing King Dedede and Escargoon out of the race. During the closing ceremony, King Dedede and Escargoon try to challenge the winners to a rematch in their busted-up car, but this is doused when Kirby splashes it accidentally with champagne, causing the car to fall to pieces. "Kirby's slippery as an oil slick!"
Watermelon Felon
E37 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon helps King Dedede spy on Kirby and frame him for various "crimes" which he did not actually commit. While the framing is commencing, Escargoon mans the news station and also conveniently cuts to commercial whenever Tiff tries to mount a defense during the show-trial. Later on, after Tiff launches her own newspaper to counter the propaganda, Escargoon tries to interview the villagers to compound their narrative, but is rebuffed when he is shown Tiff's work. At the end of the episode, Escargoon is swept away along with Dedede by the tide of newspapers that pour out of Kirby's mouth as a punishment from the townsfolk for their actions. He later has to help Dedede dispose of the newspaper by shoveling them into the minster delivery system. "Dede-delightful spring morning air freshener! Whether you're sniffin' out crime or enjoying private time, it's Dede-delightful: cause everything else just stinks!"
A Novel Approach
E38 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, Escargoon bursts into King Dedede's quarters to tell him the disastrous news that their channel's ratings have dropped to zero. To find out why, they set out into the kingdom and find that everyone is reading the same book instead. When Dedede storms into Biblio's book store and cuts the line to grab a copy, Escargoon pays Biblio as they leave out of courtesy. Once they get to a secure area, King Dedede tries to read the book, but complains about the lack of pictures, and Escargoon soon realizes that King Dedede cannot read. Dedede tries his best to hide this, but still insists that Escargoon read it. Once he starts reading, however, Dedede grows irritated that he isn't reading it aloud, and tries to chase him down, but Escargoon manages to get away. Later on, when King Dedede is confiscating all the copies of the book in the kingdom, he also takes Escargoon's copy, prompting the snail to go complain at him. Dedede then reveals that he is calling in the book's author through the monster delivery system, who will read it to an assembled audience, so they turn the castle into a magic school and invite everyone inside. Once everyone is there and in the school uniform, Escargoon invites them to partake in magical broomstick flying, but specifically bars Kirby from doing so. He largely sits on the sidelines for the remainder of the episode. "This is worse than your kingdom being invaded! Our ratings are down to zero!"
E39 Escargoon.png
Primary character In this episode, the monster Erasem implants itself into Escargoon while he is sleeping, and causes everyone else to forget who he is. Over the course of the next day, Escargoon gradually realizes this as everyone acts strangely dismissive of him, including King Dedede and all of the castle court. Initially believing this to be a prank at his expense, he heads out into town only to realize that nobody there remembers him either, and he soon falls into despair as he departs for the countryside. Eventually he runs into Kirby, and confuses his natural kindness towards strangers as him remembering him.

When he comes out, he resorts to contacting N.M.E. to help him repair his droid, and they send him a part that is proported to give the robot a "heart". This seems to work as advertised at first, since the newly-rebuilt Escar-droid refuses to take any violent orders from Dedede, but then it is revealed that pressing one of the buttons on the back of the droid will turn it into a combat-oriented robot monster, and Dedede cannot help but press it. Escargoon is left to watch helplessly as his droid turns into a flying menace on the kingdom, and Kirby has to destroy it using the Bomb ability.

Tertiary character In this episode, Escargoon is scarcely seen, showing up briefly on Channel DDD and also being seen alongside King Dedede in a couple of scenes. "Easy, Sire! This is a comedy show, not a reality series!"
A Sunsational Puzzle
E85 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon initiates things by pointing out to King Dedede how sunburnt he'd gotten after laying outside for too long, and the two soon hatch a plan to take advantage of the UV conditions by selling skin cream and air conditioner units to the Cappies, the latter of which were provided by N.M.E. and rigged to make the situation worse by emitting CFCs into the atmosphere. When the mass hysteria gets to the point where all of the Cappies have turned nocturnal, King Dedede and Escargoon take advantage of the newfound quiet during the day by taking joyrides through the kingdom. Soon, however, they realize that N.M.E. was planning on having everyone in the kingdom done in by the ozone hole forming in the sky above, and they are left to watch as Kirby, Meta Knight, and his friends deal with the situation. "Uhh... Well, Sire, you look like a roast turkey whose timer never popped up."
A Chow Challenge
E86 Escargoon.png
Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon helps officiate the cook-off being held at the castle between Chef Kawasaki and Chef Nagoya. In order to ensure that Kawasaki loses the competition, Escargoon pulls the same trick he used in The Meal Moocher and covertly spices all of Kawasaki's dishes with copious amounts of red pepper. However, this ultimately fails, since Nagoya catches what Escargoon is trying to do and decides to resign in protest. Later on, both he and Dedede end up getting scorched when Ebifryer's breath is deflected by Cook Kirby. "Don't miss the great kitchen combat as Gourmet Nagoya challenges Kawasaki: the guy who put the "gas" in "gastronomy"!"
Waste Management

Secondary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede as the two try to sort out their garbage problems, and ultimately resort to using an army of crows that they manipulate into dealing with the waste. Later on, when Crowemon gains the insta-monster mixture and starts possessing all the birds in the kingdom, King Dedede and Escargoon are there to watch Dyna Blade being attacked, but are ultimately knocked aside when Kirby defeats Crowemon using the Wing ability. "I haven't smelled anything this foul since I gave you a foot-rub!"
E88 Escargoon.png
Primary character Escargoon is the primary focus of this episode. Here, King Dedede gets a little too curious about what Escargoon may look like without his shell, and decides to antagonize him by trying to break his shell open with his hammer. Escargoon does his best to avoid this, but ultimately Dedede does manage to land a blow, severely damaging the shell. Tiff and her friends get involved and take Escargoon to Doctor Yabui's to see of they can do anything about it, but King Dedede shows up and deals the coup de grace, causing the shell to finally split open. Before he can see anything however, Kirby steps in and preserves Escargoon's dignity by holding the shell together, and Dedede is forced to withdraw.

Following this, Tiff and her friends agree to find Escargoon a replacement shell to use while they repair his old one. Most of the replacement objects found are found wanting, but Kirby manages to find a giant sea snail shell and this ends up working out well. While Escargoon is changing into his new shell, King Dedede tries to spy on him using the Grasshopper Eavesdropper, but Escargoon sees this and smashes the robot. Once changed into his temporary shell, he heads out into the castle, but is forced to try and hide in his shell when Dedede comes around. Thinking the shell to belong to a sea snail, King Dedede has it taken to his grill to be cooked, and this nearly does Escargoon in until Tiff and the others show up and extinguish the grill.

From here, Escargoon tries once more to get away from King Dedede, and flees into the throne room, where he is presented with a metal shell that Dedede had ordered for him from Night Mare Enterprises. Not knowing this, he tries the shell on, and although he finds it to be heavy at first, he soon grows strangely comfortable with it. When the others find him, he turns into a giant monster which Kirby has to fight using the Hammer ability. Using the Hammer Throw technique, Kirby is finally able to break the shell, reverting Escargoon to normal though forcing him to flee before anyone sees him without a shell on. Shortly after, he is able to slip back into his old shell which had been repaired by Tiff, and things seem to be back in order, but Dedede still wants to see him without his shell, and he chases him into the distance.

"Look at me! I'm a sheep! I'm a mess!"
Tooned Out

Primary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede as the two try to set up another attempt to make a cartoon to sell to N.M.E., and they end up hiring a trio of freelance cartoonists to help them out. However, the three are soon shown to be a bit eccentric and obsessed with Tiff, and Escargoon soon grows doubtful of them. After the three animators get themselves in trouble with the Dream Landers, he and Dedede track them down and throw them into the castle dungeon until they are finished with the cartoon. He is largely not present to watch the battle with Anige, but he does show up again to watch the finished cartoon with the others. "I bet they don't have enough brains among the three of 'em to fill a pencil case."

Despite the fact that Kirby ends up defeating Fryclops, he and Dedede celebrate, since Kirby also managed to restore the status quo in the process. "We're busy snickering, here!"
D'Preciation Day

Primary character In this episode, Escargoon accompanies King Dedede as he attempts to get his subjects to bring him gifts of appreciation.

When Kirby shows up and gives Dedede the "gift" of a half-eaten watermelon, Escargoon cannot help but laugh at this unintended prank on the King. Later on, Escargoon helps Dedede get back at Kirby by rigging some watermelons with explosives and then tricking Kirby into eating them. This plan succeeds, but Tiff plays it to her advantage when she falsely informs the two that this stunt had killed Kirby, and she invites them to his "funeral". Having bought this ruse, the two become genuinely remorseful and bring an untampered watermelon to his grave, which ends up prompting Kirby to rise from it and reveal he wasn't dead after all. Despite this, the two are glad to see that Kirby is well and that things can go back to how they were before. "Forgive us, Kirby! That prank was His Majesty's idea, but I was the one who came up with the time bomb part! For once I wish I wasn't so brilliant!"

When the Lobster shows up, it breaks through the brig area, unwittingly freeing King Dedede and Escargoon in the process. After Heavy Lobster is destroyed, the two convene with the others on the main deck, where Dedede once again complicates things by unwittingly alerting N.M.E. to the ship's location.

We'd be entitled to a phone call and I could talk to my mommy."
Fright to the Finish

"Kirby's gone wild, and you're cacklin' like a gassed-up hyena!"
