Take a little Kung, add a little Pow, mix it all together and what do you get? The Kung Pow Quahog event, that’s what. And with the event came Walking Joe and Dojo Peter for a start. Yes this latest event certainly brought some interesting character costumes with it didn’t it?
Walking Joe and Dojo Peter appeared in our games right at the start of the Kung Pow Quahog event, but where have we seen these character guises before? Well in the Family Guy TV show of course. Both made their only appearance in the same episode and I’m going to highlight it here, so join me on a journey down memory lane as we stroll through the Family Guy debuts of Walking Joe and Dojo Peter.
Beleven It Or Not, Joe’s Walking On Air – Season 6, Episode 3
It all starts when the gals, Lois & Bonnie, decide to start hanging out at The Drunken Clam and the guys, you know who I’m talking about, yeah that’s right the usual suspects, Peter, Joe, Quagmire, are not happy about this turn of events and decide to abandon The Drunken Clam for a new hangout. But where can they go to get peace from the womenfolk, well Peter’s backyard of course, where they set up their own Gentleman’s Club. Gentlemen? I’m scoffing now, indeed I am.
Lois is furious and as more and more men start turning up she demands Peter knock it down. But Peter being, well Peter, he refuses, so Lois gets the gals together and they descend upon the new hangout, and much to Peter’s annoyance the men admit defeat and let them stay.
However it soon becomes clear Bonnie is avoiding the dance floor due to Joe’s disability and when Joe becomes aware of this he decides to take steps to fix it by seeing the doctor who suggests a leg transplant of course.
During the operation Joe is quite literally legless for a little while, but it’s not long before he’s up on his feet, and voila we have our first glimpse of Walking Joe, he’s got new legs, feels like a new man and is about to develop a whole new attitude.
He sets out to do everything he was unable to do before, and one of these things is karate, and this is where we get to see Dojo Peter.
But it’s not long before this new attitude leads to not only a breakdown in Joe’s friendship with Peter, but also to the disintegration of his marriage to Bonnie. When word of this reaches Peter, he hatches a plan with the Cleveland and Quagmire to bring back old Joe. But how? Well by lying in wait for Joe and crippling him of course. However there plan backfires spectacularly when Joe beats them up.
Witnessing the carnage, Bonnie decides to enter the fray, only she’s not playing games, as she’s come packing a pistol and a plan. She’s going to shoot Joe in the spine to get her crippled man back, unfortunately her aim is a little off and she misses the spot time and time again, until eventually Joe does the job himself.
And with that Joe is once again crippled and peace and harmony returns to Quahog as Joe apologies to the guys and they head to The Drunken Clam for a drink together.
So there you have it, the origins of Walking Joe and Dojo Peter. Do you remember this episode? Or have you never seen it? Do you now plan to watch it?
