Collecting seven more episodes of
Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Aweomeness, the third DVD release is named for Po‘s ( Mick Wingert) adventures as a masked vigilante who continues to fight crime after Kung Fu is outlawed. My favorite episode of the collection involves Shifu‘s ( Fred Tatasciore) back injury and new bureacracy preventing the Furious Five to use Kung Fu to stop crime which forces Po to impersonate his master while strapping an over-medicated Shifu to his stomach.
Also included on the set are
Fung ( John DiMaggio) bringing Terra Cotta warriors to life, Po’s mistake which threatens to prolong a war between two gorilla armies, the unexpected difficulties which arise when Mr. Ping ( James Hong) temporarily moves into the Jade Palace, the side effects of Mantis ( Max Koch) choosing to drink a growth potion, and Po’s prank on Monkey ( James Sie) blowing up in his face.

With the exception of
Tigress ( Kari Wahlgren), the entire Valley of Peace anxiously turns out when the contemplative Master Yao ( Paul Rugg) arrives for one day offering a wonder and wisdom exchange from sun up to sun down by agreeing to answer a single question for every new wonder presented to them. While some, like Po ( Mick Wingert), squander the opportunity on frivolous trivia, other such as Taotie ( Wallace Shawn) use the unique situation to find the single answer he needs to complete his Sphere of Unerringly Accurate Acupressure and destroy the Dragon Warrior and the Furious Five.

The peace jubilee creates a temporary ceasefire between
Po ( Mick Wingert) and Temutai ( Kevin Michael Richardson), the leader of the Qidan Clan. Up first for the pair, each clad in a crown (at a jaunty angle!) is to judge the children’s Kung Fu competition which turns out to be uneventful, that is until it pits Temutai’s nephew against an unknown boy from the next village named Peng ( Danny Cooksey).
