I think his name is Rocky

Just like the last episode, this one feels a bit throwaway - a diversion from the main narrative.

Aang is meant to be going to the North Pole, but so far he has stopped to ride fish & now makes another random stop to ride a big slide. It's fun, but you can't help but feel slightly frustrated at the stalling of the main narrative.

It still has enough humour and cute moments to hold up as a solid stand alone episode. The mad king is a great character, despite the somewhat predictable twist.

I don't think we get to see any Fire Nation activity in this one.
