Fountain Of Youth Dunk Tank? CONTAINS SPOILERS!!!

OK, I am an animation fan and like the show, but I just saw the Fountain of Youth Episode and it bugged me. I know that Ben 10 uses a lot of contrivances in many episodes but this one just seemed to go overboard.

If you haven’t seen the episode, stop reading as this post contains spoilers for the episode.


OK, so we’re suppose to believe that a 400 year old Spanish Conquistador has been watching over the Fountain of Youth all this time. I can accept that. But if his job was to keep the Fountain a secret why oh why did he bring it with him to St. Augustine?

OK, so maybe he needed a supply of it for himself as he was staying a few days but that leads me to a new problem. Why put it in a large dunking booth, then hang an out of service sign on said booth? Wouldn’t it have been easier to just take it along as bottled water to drink? What was the point of putting it in a dunking booth?

I mean sure, the story had Grampa Max fall into the water and get young again. But couldn’t this have occurred in some other way, EG he somehow came into possession of a bottle of water?

The plot line of putting it in a dunking booth then not wanting people to use the booth was just a little too ridiculous for me.

I’d also like to know why Hex aged so fast, but I guess some rival of his may have done that to him offscreen.
