As Tingo tries to decide which sport is his favorite, Niki goes ballistic. In a panic, he names karate.
Rory, the green-belt aged 6, goes to karate class and learns under his sensei, where he does toe touches, kicking, stretches, jumping jacks, and an unnamed move consisting of tumbling, then posing. Not only do they practice inside, but they also practice outside in the park.
The film is now narrated by Tingo and Niki.
SCENE 2 cont'd
Tingo now disregards karate as his favorite sport and goes crazy as well, when suddenly, the studio shakes and the roof shambles. Two large monsters emerge (spoofing Godzilla and Mothra), naming their favorite sport, which is different than the others. THey begin fight as Tingo and Niki watch from under the desk. A show tune starts playing, so they forget their feud and dance together.
