"Donkey" is the 9th episode of Father of the Pride, directed by John Holmquist and written by Vanessa McCarthy.


This episode is a crossover episode with Shrek. The character Donkey is in town filming a commercial and all the animals in the enclosure come out to see him. Career day is coming up and Hunter doesn't want his father to come to his school; however, he comes to his school and says he knows Donkey in order to make himself sound cool. Larry meets Donkey and asks him to visit Hunter's school, but his manager declines. So Larry, Sarmoti, and Snack kidnap Donkey's stunt double, mistaking him for Donkey. Passing him off as Donkey, Larry takes Donkey's stunt double to the school, which turns out to be a disaster once the children find out. Eventually, Donkey makes an appearance, saving the day and Larry and Hunter's reputation. Siegfried and Roy file a complaint with the Bed and Breakfast that has replaced the Applebees. They stage a protest against the Bed and Breakfast, which leads to Siegfried having sex with the owner Grandma Wilson. They take it over and turn it into a casino, "saving" Las Vegas.
