Episode Info



Louie's Eleven! is the fifth episode of Season 3 of DuckTales.

Plot

Louie plans a break-in at a high-class party hosted by Duckburg’s most popular tastemaker, Emma Glamour, so The Three Caballeros can play as Donald tries to get past the party’s no-nonsense planner, Daisy Duck.

Summary

The Three Caballeros begin a performance, as Donald tries to sing first but Panchito cuts him off and sings instead. José Carioca then interrupts Panchito's singing, which then ultimately leads to all three of them getting into a fight a breaking apart their stage. When Scrooge questions the three of them about why they're in his bathroom in the first place, they all talk about their hopes for him to fund them for the world tour they hope to pursue. Unfortunately, this only leaves Scrooge even further agitated and gets Duckworth to kick them out. As the three continue to contemplate about a proper sponsor, Louie approaches them with an offer, leaving Panchito and José excited, but with Donald conflicted.

The four then meet within the triplet's room, as Louie introduces them to Emma Glamour's It-list website, with Dewey bumping in from his bunk bed and explains how her list can make anyone instantly popular. He also shows the Caballeros his favorite hair style and band, which he claims to have discovered because of Glamour's website. After a failed yo-yo attempt by Dewey, José begins worrying about how they can get on the It-list and if they can. Louie and Dewey then continue to explain that Glamour will be appearing at an exclusive party held at the Duckburg Museum, where she will be revealing the people who made her It-list.

Louie and the Caballeros soon believe that if Louie can get them into the party before she posts the list online, Glamour could have a chance to see their performance with the high hope that she'll allow them on her list. Even so, Donald still wonders how they'll get in, but Louie introduces them to have an elaborate scheme set up for the break-in he dubs Louie's Eleven. He then shows his eleven part scheme to get into the party and get The Caballeros to perform. But before he goes through the plan with them, he convinces the Caballeros to sign a legally binding contract which would give Louie half the earnings for when they get famous."

Donald is hesitant at first, but Panchito and José immediately agree to it, leaving Donald reluctantly going along with it as well. Louie then explains that all eleven members have an important role in the break-in, with the first member Louie acting as the leader, the fifth member Dewey as the specialist, and the second member Donald, third member José, and fourth member Panchito all as the talent. However, due to the party being invite-only, the sixth member Huey acts as the forger to help forge an invitation that will get them into the party. Later they visit the seventh member Gyro, acting as the tech guru, who gives the crew earpieces to communicate with one another during the party, even though they have a chance of exploding if worn for too long.

While looking into the layout of the museum through the front window, Donald catches his eye on a female duck bossing people around with the party preparations. Louie explains that her name is Daisy Duck, Glamour's personal assistant who is giving the setup orders to keep the party organized. After a close call with flower types between Daisy and Glamour herself, Louie says they have to go through Daisy in order to get to Glamour. As the gang gets ready to crash the party while waiting in line to enter, Dewey and Louie suddenly spot Falcon Graves literally throwing someone believed to be a party crasher out.

Surprised that Graves is working security for the party, Dewey recalls the last time he saw Graves, having cost him millions and throwing him off a building. Dewey knows Falcon will catch on and kick them out, so in order to get in unrecognized, Louie has Dewey change his clothes and puts an electric helmet on him to disguise his voice. He then gives his uncle and friends sunglasses with their hats now switched, as they approach Falcon who momentarily deems them as suspicious, but soon allows them into the party after Daisy calls from afar to keep the line going.

Trivia

  • Main Cast Absences: Della, Launchpad, and Mrs. Beakley.
  • This episode parodies Ocean’s Eleven which is a remake of the 1960 heist film Ocean's 11.
  • This is the first episode title to include one of the triplets' names.
  • This episode features the first appearance of Daisy Duck in DuckTales. Ironically, she never appeared in the original series at all, not counting the comics.
  • This episode has similar themes and plot points to early versions of The Infernal Internship of Mark Beaks!.[1]
  • The people involved in "Louie's Eleven" and their roles are:
    1. Louie - The Brains (devises the whole plan)
    2. Panchito - The Talent(?) (the entire plan revolves around getting the Three Caballeros into the "it list")
    3. Donald - The Talent(?) (same as Panchito; he also has an additional role of getting the stage pass from Daisy)
    4. José - The Talent(?) (same as Panchito and Donald)
    5. Dewey - The Specialist... (does the "special job", which turns out to be putting a harpy into the vents as a diversion)
    6. Huey - The "Forger" (forges an invitation so the group can get into the party)
    7. Gyro - Tech Guru (his invention lets them discreetly communicate to each other even when they're apart)
    8. Jane - The Inside Woman (spills water on Daisy, so Donald can snatch her stage pass alone)
    9. Harpy - The Diversion (Dewey puts a harpy into the vents to distract Falcon Graves)
    10. Webby - The Tactician (cuts the power off the elevator Donald and Daisy are in)
    11. Manny - The Muscle (their last resort; he was going to beat up Falcon in case the plan goes awry, but this fails)
  • One of the statues that appears at the Galla resembles a ballet hippo (possibly Hyacinth Hippo), which is a reference to the Fantasia film short in which Daisy appears.
  • This episode references a cut joke in Jaw$! about Gyro being called a kid inventor and having a genetically modified robot baby. The reference was in Gyro's section of Louie's board.[2]
  • When Falcon Graves is reviewing who has authorization to enter the building and is having trouble remembering where he's seen Dewey before, he grants access and says, "Welcome to the party, pal." Later, Donald announced his and Daisy's arrival with "Yippee Ki-Yay, Mr. Falcon". Both are references to lines said by officer John McClane in the first Die Hard movie.
  • Dewey's picture on the board features a phrase labelled as "License to Chill"; a joke reference to both James Bond's "license to kill" and the James Bond movie, Licence to Kill.
  • Mark Beaks' real name is revealed by his mother to be in fact, Marcus.
  • Daisy's hair and wardrobe in this episode are based on her wardrobe from the 1954 Disney classic short, Donald's Diary.
  • Donald’s song "Hear My Voice", was sung by Dominic Lewis who serves as DuckTales' composer.
  • Goof: When Daisy and Donald are in the vent, Daisy has her shoes on, but in the next scene she's webbed-foot.
