Why It Sucks
- Unlike other DreamWorks movie-based Netflix Shows (like the Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show, Dawn of the Croods, Trolls: The Beat Goes On and Home: Adventures with Tip and Oh), this episode is a very poor way to end not only the season but also the Turbo franchise in general as it was completely random and not giving the series a proper conclusion, considering that this season has a lot of filler episodes that doesn't make up to the finale.
- It also does nothing to improve the third season, worsen most of the problems the the season has such as the writing, characterization, humor, and filler.
- Overuse of very disgusting and overly detailed gross-out imagery from the fried cheese which is on the ground which was just there to advance the plot such as Skidmark's affection to the cheese and Mel puking on Charlie which is what Scooter Buskie would later do the same thing two years later.
- The flanderized characters are somehow even worse as they were in the entirely of the third season.
- The Fast Crew were shown cheating one another just to get the plane from the contest which against their characters.
- This episode is once again, loaded with filler that only served to pad out the running time of the episode, especially White Shadow's addiction to the plane, thinking that it's a dog and Turbo (wearing a mustache) and Mel auguring and fighting over announcing the contest.
- Very abysmal writing from Jim Martin who did a lot better work on the Heroes franchise, Raven's Home and Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja.
- Poor plot twist: It turns out that Sombrero Fly, Mama Guana's son, actually won the contest by hiding in a hat the whole time, even though he can already fly, making his appearance in this episode filler and pointless.
- Similar to Get the Hock Out and Scrambled Eggs, this episode heavily overuses unnecessary filler scenes that were only there just to pad out the running time of the episode.
- This episode basically killed off the Turbo franchise and any chances of it getting a sequel (not helped out by the film not performing well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel), as nowadays DreamWorks outright gave up the franchise.
- This episode is a rip off of the movie Planes.
- Plot Hole: How can Smoove's plane touching guy, a spider, be scared of a plastic toy of his own species?
- The animation and voice acting is still fast-paced and great as usual.
- Despite being filler and pointless, Sombrero Fly finally gets his comeuppance by crashing his plane into a vending machine, becoming a laughing stock towards the Fast Crew.
