    This theory does make sense, but after seeing Donkey's episodes in the old 2004-2005 animation of "Father of the Pride" I'm not sure what to think, though to be fair since the series was Canceled I'm not sure if i can call it cannon.

    nice theory... it does sound plausible for me, BUT I got an pther one for you: Is it possible that the donkey is actually from Shrek's universe? Correct me if I'm mistaken, but if I remember correctly Shrek is based of a children books with the same name. And in that book (wich has no "crossovers" with other fairytales) he meets a talking donkey, that guids him to the princesses castle. So maybe that is his origin?

Like I'm not trying to read a whole essay while watching a show, I don't want to focus on a textbox instead of the main story and ruin the whole show for myself. If you watch sub thats fine but stop trying to attack others because their not a total fucking weeb like jesus christ.

    Eleven was the typical age for marriage and still is in some parts of the world. Also 30-40 was the life expectancy at that time. The true betrayal is that the original story was written to convince young girls to marry abusive men and stay with them so, that their extended families could enjoy the beastly man's wealth.

    MatPat, you missed the mark on this one! The Eagles' size, ability to fly, sheer power, etc., are easy enough to explain, but you are forgetting one very IMPORTANT detail...Mt. Doom is an active VOLCANO! Getting anywhere close to the enormous ash cloud would be a death sentence as volcanic ash, sulfur, sulfuric acid, super heated particulates, and (of course) extreme heat would kill any lower being the moment they took a breath! Volcanic ash clouds have been known to shoot up thousands of feet into the air, and we can see from the movies that Mordor is almost completely covered in this volcanic ash cloud 24/7. The highest we've seen the Eagles fly in the movies is only about 1-2K feet in the air (note how they barely make it over the mountains in the Hobbit movies). Even at the end of Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, when Gandalf and the Eagles rescue Frodo and Sam, we see an enormous hole in the volcanic ash cloud through which Gandalf and the Eagles fly in. If that hole wasn't there, they probably wouldn't have been able to save Frodo and Sam without exposing them to the deadly volcanic ash cloud!

    2 things that proves the ingredients exist: 1: On the movie Plankton starts making the Krabby Patties if there wasn't a recipe he would of been like what?!?!?! But instead he just makes the patties. 2: Most importantly..on an Episode Squidward guesses Mr Krabs has the secret formula at home under his mattress then Mr Krab panics and runs home....:p on that same episode he says when Plankton steals the recipe hahaha he thought it was the real formula due to the fact Plankton thought he was the secret ingredient lol.

    okay but donkey not talking in line when the old lady says he can, but refuses then finally admits he can when he starts flying - so maybe that’s how he escaped the island? he pretended he couldn’t so he could leave and then had to keep it up, but maybe slipped up a couple times in from of the woman, and he ends up in line and stuff??
