The Mother of All Marathons is the twelfth episode of Season 1.


Mike gets all the islanders as well as the animals interested in the marathon. Lu ignores all the training needed to compete, and during the marathon tries to cheat by riding on the animals, and then the people, including Mike, who gets blinded by her hands and the two crash into a tree. As a result, Lancelot is the winner as he crosses the finish line first.


  • In the second short, Wendel's hair is briefly colored brown before the marathon starts.
