0:02 - 0:06 Water, earth,
0:06 - 0:10 fire, air...
0:11 - 0:15 Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony.
0:15 - 0:18 Then everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.
0:19 - 0:23 Only the Avatar, master of all four elements, could stop them.
0:23 - 0:25 But when the world needed him most,
0:25 - 0:26 he vanished.
0:27 - 0:31 A hundred years passed, and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar,
0:31 - 0:32 an airbender named Aang.
0:32 - 0:35 And although his airbending skills are great,
0:35 - 0:38 he has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone.
0:38 - 0:42 But I believe Aang can save the world.
0:59 - 1:02 The Earth Kingdom City of Omashu!
1:05 - 1:07 I used to always come here to visit my friend Bumi.
1:07 - 1:08 Wow!
1:08 - 1:10 We don't have cities like this in the South Pole.
1:10 - 1:13 They have buildings here that don't melt.
1:13 - 1:14 Well, let's go, slowpokes.
1:14 - 1:17 The real fun is inside the city!
1:17 - 1:19 Wait, Aang.
1:19 - 1:20 It could be dangerous
1:20 - 1:22 if people find out you're the Avatar.
1:22 - 1:23 You need a disguise.
1:23 - 1:25 So, what am I supposed to do,
1:25 - 1:26 grow a mustache?
1:29 - 1:31 Oh, this is so itchy.
1:31 - 1:34 How do you live in this stuff?
1:35 - 1:36 Great!
1:37 - 1:38 Now you look just like my grandfather.
1:38 - 1:41 Technically, Aang is 112 years old.
1:42 - 1:44 Now, let's get to skipping, young whipper snappers!
1:45 - 1:46 The big city awaits!
2:02 - 2:04 You guys are gonna love Omashu.
2:04 - 2:07 The people here are the friendliest in the world.
2:09 - 2:11 What kind of slum do you think this is?
2:17 - 2:19 No! My cabbages!
2:22 - 2:24 Just keep smiling.
2:26 - 2:27 Heh heh heh.
2:30 - 2:32 State your business!
2:33 - 2:35 My business is my business, young man,
2:35 - 2:37 and none of yours.
2:37 - 2:39 I've got half a mind to bend you over my knee
2:39 - 2:40 and paddle your backside.
2:40 - 2:42 Settle down, old timer.
2:42 - 2:44 Just tell me who you are.
2:44 - 2:49 Name's Bonzoo Pippenpadlopsicopolis the Third.
2:49 - 2:51 And these are my grandkids.
2:51 - 2:53 Hi. June Pippenpadlopsicopolis.
2:53 - 2:54 Nice to meet you.
2:56 - 2:58 You seem like a responsible young lady.
2:58 - 3:01 See that your grandfather stays out of trouble.
3:01 - 3:02 Enjoy Omashu.
3:02 - 3:03 We will.
3:06 - 3:08 Wait a minute!
3:10 - 3:12 You're a strong young boy.
3:13 - 3:14 Show some respect for the elderly
3:14 - 3:16 and carry your grandfather's bag.
3:17 - 3:18 Good idea.
3:46 - 3:48 This is the Omashu delivery system...
3:49 - 3:51 Miles and miles of tubes and chutes.
3:53 - 3:56 Earthbending brings the packages up,
3:56 - 3:58 and gravity brings them down.
3:59 - 4:01 Great, so they get their mail on time.
4:01 - 4:03 They do get their mail on time.
4:03 - 4:06 But my friend Bumi found a better use for these chutes.
4:10 - 4:11 Look around you!
4:11 - 4:12 What do you see?!
4:12 - 4:15 Um... The mail system.
4:15 - 4:17 Instead of seeing what they want you to see,
4:17 - 4:20 you gotta open your brain to the possibilities.
4:20 - 4:22 A package-sending system?
4:22 - 4:25 The world's greatest super slide!
4:25 - 4:28 Bumi, you're a mad genius.
4:35 - 4:37 Yeah! Ha ha ha ha!
4:40 - 4:41 One ride...
4:42 - 4:43 Then we're off to the North Pole...
4:43 - 4:45 Airbender's honor.
4:45 - 4:46 This sounded like fun at first,
4:46 - 4:48 but now that I'm here,
4:48 - 4:52 I'm starting to have second thoughts!
4:57 - 4:58 Yeah!
4:58 - 5:00 Ha ha ha ha!
5:14 - 5:15 I'm on it!
5:20 - 5:24 Men, you'll be going off to combat soon.
5:24 - 5:26 It's important that you be prepared for anything.
5:36 - 5:37 Aang, do something!
5:37 - 5:39 Use your airbending!
5:39 - 5:41 Yeah! Good idea!
5:41 - 5:43 That will make us go even faster.
6:18 - 6:19 Sorry!
6:37 - 6:38 My cabbages!
6:38 - 6:40 You're gonna pay for this!
6:42 - 6:43 Two cabbages, please.
6:56 - 6:57 Hmm?
6:57 - 6:59 Your Majesty,
6:59 - 7:01 these juveniles were arrested for vandalism,
7:01 - 7:03 traveling under false pretenses,
7:03 - 7:04 and malicious destruction of cabbages.
7:04 - 7:06 Off with their heads!
7:06 - 7:07 One for each head of cabbage!
7:08 - 7:09 Silence!
7:09 - 7:11 Only the king can pass down judgment.
7:11 - 7:13 What is your judgment, sire?
7:13 - 7:15 Hmm.
7:25 - 7:28 Throw them...
7:28 - 7:29 A feast.
7:29 - 7:31 Ugh!
7:31 - 7:32 Huh?
7:41 - 7:42 The people in my city
7:42 - 7:45 have gotten fat from too many feasts.
7:45 - 7:49 So, I hope you like your chicken with no skin.
7:49 - 7:50 Thanks, but I don't eat meat.
7:50 - 7:52 How about you?
7:52 - 7:54 I bet you like meat.
7:56 - 7:58 Is it just me,
7:58 - 8:00 or is this guy's crown a little crooked?
8:01 - 8:04 So, tell me, young bald one,
8:04 - 8:05 where are you from?
8:06 - 8:08 I'm from Kangaroo Island.
8:09 - 8:12 Oh, Kangaroo Island, eh?
8:12 - 8:15 I hear that place is really hopping.
8:21 - 8:22 What?
8:22 - 8:23 It was pretty funny.
8:25 - 8:29 All these good jokes are making me tired.
8:29 - 8:31 Guess it's time to hit the hay.
8:36 - 8:38 There's an airbender in our presence,
8:38 - 8:41 and not just any airbender...
8:41 - 8:43 The Avatar.
8:45 - 8:47 Now, what do you have to say for yourself,
8:47 - 8:50 Mr. Pippenpadlopsicopolis?
8:56 - 8:59 Ok, you caught me.
8:59 - 9:00 I'm the Avatar...
9:00 - 9:02 Doing my Avatar thing,
9:02 - 9:04 keeping the world safe.
9:04 - 9:05 Everything checks out.
9:05 - 9:07 No firebenders here.
9:07 - 9:08 So, good work, everybody.
9:08 - 9:09 Love each other,
9:09 - 9:10 respect all life,
9:11 - 9:12 and don't run with your spears.
9:13 - 9:14 We'll see you next time!
9:17 - 9:18 You can't keep us here.
9:18 - 9:20 Let us leave!
9:21 - 9:22 Lettuce leaf?
9:25 - 9:27 We're in serious trouble.
9:27 - 9:28 This guy is nuts.
9:29 - 9:33 Tomorrow, the Avatar will face three deadly challenges.
9:33 - 9:37 But for now, the guards will show you to your chamber.
9:37 - 9:40 My liege, do you mean the good chamber or the bad chamber?
9:40 - 9:41 The newly-refurbished chamber.
9:42 - 9:44 Wait. Which one are we talking about?
9:44 - 9:47 The one that used to be the bad chamber...
9:47 - 9:49 Until the recent refurbishing, that is.
9:49 - 9:52 Of course, we've been calling it the new chamber,
9:52 - 9:53 but we really should number them.
9:53 - 9:54 Uh...
9:54 - 9:56 Take them to the refurbished chamber
9:56 - 9:58 that was once bad.
10:07 - 10:08 This is a prison cell?
10:08 - 10:09 But it's so nice.
10:09 - 10:12 He did say it was newly refurbished.
10:12 - 10:14 Nice or not, we're prisoners.
10:14 - 10:16 I wonder what these challenges are gonna be.
10:16 - 10:19 We're not sticking around to find out.
10:19 - 10:20 There's gotta be some way out of here.
10:20 - 10:22 The air vents!
10:24 - 10:26 If you think we're gonna fit through there,
10:26 - 10:27 you're crazier than that king.
10:27 - 10:28 We can't.
10:29 - 10:30 But Momo can.
10:32 - 10:34 Momo, I need you to find Appa
10:34 - 10:36 and bust us out of here.
10:44 - 10:45 Go on, boy!
10:45 - 10:46 Get Appa!
10:47 - 10:50 Eh, how was Appa supposed to save us anyway?
10:50 - 10:52 Appa is a 10-ton flying bison.
10:52 - 10:54 I think he could figure something out.
10:55 - 10:58 Well, no point arguing about it now.
10:58 - 11:00 Get some rest, Aang.
11:00 - 11:02 Looks like you'll need it for tomorrow.
11:10 - 11:12 Sokka? Katara?
11:13 - 11:14 Where are my friends?
11:14 - 11:17 The king will free them if you complete your challenges.
11:17 - 11:18 And if I fail?
11:19 - 11:20 He didn't say.
11:20 - 11:21 Your staff, please?
11:27 - 11:29 First, Avatar,
11:29 - 11:31 what do you think of my new outfit?
11:31 - 11:33 I want your honest opinion.
11:36 - 11:38 I'm waiting.
11:38 - 11:39 I...
11:39 - 11:40 Guess it's fine.
11:41 - 11:42 Excellent.
11:42 - 11:43 You've passed the first test.
11:43 - 11:44 Really?
11:45 - 11:46 Well...
11:46 - 11:47 Not one of the deadly tests.
11:47 - 11:49 The real challenges are much more...
11:49 - 11:50 Challenging.
11:53 - 11:56 I don't have time for your crazy games.
11:56 - 11:58 Give me my friends back. We're leaving!
11:58 - 12:01 Oh, I thought you might refuse,
12:01 - 12:05 so I will give your friends some special souvenirs.
12:06 - 12:07 Those delightful rings
12:07 - 12:09 are made of pure genomite...
12:09 - 12:12 Also known as Creeping Crystal.
12:12 - 12:15 It's crystal that grows remarkably fast.
12:15 - 12:19 By nightfall, your friends will be completely covered in it.
12:19 - 12:21 Terrible fate, really.
12:21 - 12:22 I can stop it,
12:22 - 12:24 but only if you cooperate.
12:25 - 12:27 Agh! It's already creeping!
12:29 - 12:30 I'll do what you want.
12:30 - 12:32 Hmm!
12:36 - 12:38 Ha ha ha ha ha!
12:42 - 12:45 It seems I've lost my lunchbox key,
12:45 - 12:46 and I'm hungry.
12:50 - 12:52 Oh, there it is!
12:52 - 12:54 Would you mind fetching it for me?
13:11 - 13:12 Ooh!
13:13 - 13:14 Climbing the ladder.
13:14 - 13:16 No one's thought of that before!
13:18 - 13:19 Aah!
13:45 - 13:46 That's right.
13:46 - 13:47 Keep diving head in.
13:47 - 13:49 I'm sure it will work eventually.
14:03 - 14:04 Huh?
14:05 - 14:07 There! Enjoy your lunch!
14:07 - 14:09 I want my friends back now!
14:09 - 14:10 Uh, not yet.
14:10 - 14:12 I need help with another matter.
14:13 - 14:16 It seems I've lost my pet Flopsy.
14:17 - 14:18 Ok, found him.
14:18 - 14:20 Bring him to me.
14:20 - 14:22 Daddy wants a kiss from Flopsy.
14:22 - 14:24 Come here, Flopsy.
14:25 - 14:27 Heh heh.
14:32 - 14:33 Flopsy, wait!
14:33 - 14:34 Flopsy!
14:38 - 14:40 Flopsy!
14:51 - 14:52 Wait a minute.
14:56 - 14:57 Flopsy?
15:03 - 15:04 Flopsy!
15:11 - 15:14 Oh, that's a good boy.
15:14 - 15:16 Yes! Who has a soft belly?
15:19 - 15:20 Guys, are you ok?
15:20 - 15:23 Other than the crystal slowly encasing my entire body,
15:23 - 15:24 doing great.
15:28 - 15:30 Oh, yes.
15:30 - 15:33 Come on. I'm ready for the next challenge.
15:33 - 15:36 Ah! Ha ha ha ha ha!
15:39 - 15:42 Your final test is a duel.
15:42 - 15:44 And, as a special treat,
15:44 - 15:46 you may choose your opponent.
15:55 - 15:56 Point and choose.
15:57 - 16:00 So, you're saying whoever I point to...
16:00 - 16:02 That's the person I get to fight?
16:03 - 16:04 Choose wisely.
16:06 - 16:07 I...
16:08 - 16:10 Choose...
16:10 - 16:11 You.
16:11 - 16:13 Ha ha. Wrong choice.
16:24 - 16:25 Whoa!
16:26 - 16:27 Oof!
16:40 - 16:43 You thought I was a frail old man,
16:43 - 16:47 but I'm the most powerful earthbender you'll ever see.
16:47 - 16:50 Can I fight the guy with the ax instead?
16:50 - 16:53 There are no take-backsies in my kingdom.
16:54 - 16:55 You might need this.
17:02 - 17:04 Typical airbender tactic...
17:04 - 17:06 Avoid and evade.
17:06 - 17:08 I'd hoped the Avatar would be less predictable.
17:11 - 17:13 Don't you have any surprises for me?
17:13 - 17:16 Sooner or later, you'll have to strike back.
17:32 - 17:35 Oh, you'll have to be a little more creative than that.
17:46 - 17:49 Did someone leave the windows open?
17:49 - 17:51 It feels a little drafty in here.
17:51 - 17:54 Are you hoping I'll catch a cold?
18:08 - 18:12 How are you going to get me from way over there?
18:34 - 18:35 Oof!
19:19 - 19:20 Aah!
19:23 - 19:24 Huh.
19:28 - 19:31 Ha ha. Well done, Avatar.
19:31 - 19:34 You fight with much fire in your heart.
19:38 - 19:39 Huh?
19:46 - 19:49 You've passed all my tests.
19:49 - 19:52 Now, you must answer one question.
19:52 - 19:53 That's not fair.
19:53 - 19:56 You said you would release my friends if I finish your tests.
19:56 - 20:00 Oh, but what's the point of tests if you don't learn anything?
20:00 - 20:01 Oh, come on!
20:01 - 20:03 Answer this one question
20:03 - 20:06 and I will set your friends free.
20:07 - 20:09 What is my name?
20:11 - 20:12 From the looks of your friends,
20:12 - 20:15 I'd say you only have a few minutes.
20:16 - 20:17 How am I supposed to know his name?
20:18 - 20:19 Think about the challenges.
20:19 - 20:21 Maybe it's some kind of riddle.
20:21 - 20:22 I got it! Yeah?
20:22 - 20:24 He's an earthbender, right?
20:24 - 20:25 Rocky...
20:26 - 20:28 You know, because of all the rocks.
20:28 - 20:29 We're gonna keep trying,
20:29 - 20:30 but that is a good backup.
20:30 - 20:33 Ok, so back to the challenges.
20:33 - 20:35 I got a key from a waterfall,
20:35 - 20:37 I saved his pet, and I had a duel.
20:37 - 20:38 And what did you learn?
20:38 - 20:42 Well, everything was different than I expected.
20:42 - 20:44 And...
20:44 - 20:46 Well...
20:46 - 20:49 They weren't straightforward. To solve each test,
20:49 - 20:52 I had to think differently than I usually would.
20:52 - 20:54 I know his name.
20:56 - 20:59 I solved the question the same way I solved the challenges.
21:00 - 21:02 As you said a long time ago,
21:02 - 21:04 I had to open my brain to the possibilities.
21:08 - 21:10 Bumi, you're a mad genius.
21:12 - 21:15 Oh, Aang, it's good to see you.
21:15 - 21:18 You haven't changed a bit...
21:18 - 21:19 Literally.
21:20 - 21:21 Uh, over here.
21:21 - 21:22 A little help.
21:26 - 21:28 Genomite is made of rock candy.
21:29 - 21:30 Delicious!
21:31 - 21:34 So, this crazy king is your old friend Bumi?
21:34 - 21:36 Who you calling old?
21:36 - 21:38 Ok, I'm old.
21:38 - 21:40 Why did you do all this
21:40 - 21:42 instead of just telling Aang who you were?
21:42 - 21:43 First of all,
21:43 - 21:45 it's pretty fun messing with people.
21:45 - 21:46 Ha ha.
21:46 - 21:48 But I do have a reason.
21:48 - 21:51 Aang, you have a difficult task ahead.
21:51 - 21:54 The world has changed in the 100 years you've been gone.
21:55 - 21:58 It's the duty of the Avatar to restore balance to the world
21:58 - 22:00 by defeating Fire Lord Ozai.
22:00 - 22:01 You have much to learn.
22:02 - 22:04 You must master the four elements
22:04 - 22:06 and confront the Fire Lord.
22:06 - 22:07 And when you do,
22:07 - 22:10 I hope you will think like a mad genius.
22:13 - 22:16 And it looks like you're in good hands.
22:17 - 22:20 You'll need your friends to help you defeat the Fire Nation.
22:22 - 22:24 And you'll need Momo, too.
22:24 - 22:26 Thank you for your wisdom.
22:26 - 22:27 But before we leave,
22:27 - 22:29 I have a challenge for you.
22:31 - 22:33 Yeah! Whoo!
22:37 - 22:39 My cabbages!
