In Slug Fu Showdown, Eli has added some awesome new slugs to his arsenal: the ELEMENTALS. But the Elemental Slugs are ancient, extremely powerful, and temperamental, and Eli can’t control them. Junjie, the newest member of the Shane Gang, has the solution: Eli must learn SLUG FU, the ancient and mysterious form of slugslinging that Junjie mastered when he lived in the Eastern Caverns. The Slug Fu training won’t be easy, and it’s something Eli and Junjie must do alone. That means leaving Kord, Trixie and Pronto behind—and all of Eli’s slugs, too! Things get even tougher when Eli’s training is cut short by a mysterious new villain with a seriously insane plan to rock Slugterra to its core. The villain needs only one thing to unleash his evil plan: the Elemental Slugs! Luckily, Eli left them with the rest of the Shane Gang, so they are safe…or they would be, if Pronto hadn’t annoyed them so much that they hopped off and ran away. As Kord, Trixie and Pronto struggle to keep the wily Elementals out of the wrong hands, Eli and Junjie engage in a showdown with the madman before he can reduce the 99 caverns to rubble!
Slugterra is an epic sci-fi comedy adventure set deep underground, where the ammo’s alive and only the quick survive! In this luminous, high-tech, underground world, every cavern holds a new adventure, a new battle and weird little slugs to be discovered. Slugterra was created by Vancouver-based animation studio Nerd Corps Entertainment, which was recently acquired DHX Media Ltd.

My son anxiously awaits each new Slugterra set of videos. He is so funny and absolutely loves these episodes and each time I get a new set he thinks I am the coolest mom ever. I like the messages in these videos – they are totally in line with what I believe are appropriate for my children to watch.
I received this video in exchange for an honest review.
