Kodi and Dusty: A couple or not?

Kodi and Dusty: A couple or not?


Are Kodi and Dusty really a couple? You decide with some unique evidnece given. Share your opinion.


I bet your probally saying in the back of your head right now is "Another Kodi and Dusty article, geez they are not a couple get over it, Medic!!!!!"
 

We all have diffrent opinions on the subject of Kodi and Dusty. Some say there only friends, some say they are in love, and some have other opinons.
 

After studying the movie: Balto III: Wings of Change, I have discovered 12 artifacts of the subject that just may change a lot of opinions. I'm not saying you have to change your opinion, believe what you want. Unfortantly for those who disbelief Kodi and Dusty as a couple, these promote the Kodi and Dusty as a couple thing.
 

I will start from the begginning of the movie to the end, 1-12. I will also add screenshots to prove I am not making this up, and the movie time so you can look for yourself.

I GOT RID OF #3 AND #7 SO YOU CAN STOP BUGGING ME ABOUT IT!!! NOW THERE IS ONLY 12.


 

1: The first one is during the 'Everything Flies' song, while Balto and Jenna over looked Kodi's team at the beach, but look just as Boris begins to fade into the screen, from the looks of it to me, I'm not to sure but it looks like Kodi and Dusty are nuzzleing.
 

Look about a second or two after this screen shot was taken, if I went any later, the boat that is fadeing in will make it too hard to see.


 

This one is by far the hardest to see, but it also maybe the most convincing, lok for yourself.


 

This one involves both Kodi and Dusty.


 

The movie time: 2: 30--- 2: 35


 

Team


 

2: The second piece is about 20 seconds later, still during the 'Everything Flies' song. Just as Kodi and his team are about to leave to White Mountain again, look at the expression on Dusty's face in the back ground as she looks at Kodi.


 

This one involves only Dusty.


 

The move time: 2: 48--- 2: 49


 

Involves

 


 

3: The number 4 on our list about a minuete later, under the Town Hall of Nome, the dogs are trying to figure out who will lead the team to beat the Bush Plane, Kirby says randomly 'You can count on me!'. After Dusty began to speak as she was standing next to Kodi, but during her talking to Kirby, she looks at Kodi 3 times for no reason, don't believe me, look for yourself.


 

This one only involves Dusty.


 

The movie time: 21: 52--- 22: 02


 

Movie


 

4: This one is probally the hardest one to explain, but I do have the screen shot if I'm not clear, but anyways right after the team and Balto gets hitched up for the big race, Ralph says randomly 'I'm ready are you ready, cuz I'm ready', then Balto looks back at Ralph and says 'Something telles me he's ready', but look at Kodi, look at the angle of his head, it's not faceing Ralph diaginaly behind him, but behind him, 180 degrees back, and who is there at 180 degrees of Kodi, Dusty.


 

Then Kodi looks back to his to Balto and say 'This is going to be great Dad' then looks back. The reason why I'm saying this is becoase if Balto is looking a Ralph and Kodi is behind Balto, then you would see MORE of Kodi's face, but you see less than Balto's. You kinda have to use mathmatics on this one, I did.


 

This one only involves Kodi, maybe Dusty.


 

The movie time: 34: 49--- 34: 56


 

Jenna


 

5: This is the last one for a while, but just before the race begins and Mr. Connor is making the announcement that the race is begginning, the camera in this case pionts to each contestant for a second or two. When the 'camera' looks at Balto and Kodi's team, look at Kodi's actions, he turns around to Dusty with his touge out and everything, AND when Kodi does this, Dusty makes a bigger reaction.


 

This one involves both Kodi and Dusty.


 

The movie time: 36: 55--- 36: 57


 

Kodi


 

I just need to say this right now, I don't mean to turn anyone down but ALL of the rest until #12 is AFTER Dusty and Ralph's... moment, and the next 6 are all involving Dusty, don't believe me, watch the movie yourself.


 

6: This one deffantly cought my eye, now that Dusty and Ralph's moment is over, as Jenna says 'Look if anyone can find him, Balto can' now that Balto has gone to find Duke who has crashed in the Alaskan wilderness. Jenna looks over and sees Kodi, Dusty, and the unknown dogs, I named them Marine and Totin in my Love's Crime series, so I'll say that, Kodi, Dusty, Marine, and Totin were walking on the other side of the road, with no Kirby and Ralph any where. As Jenna saw them, Dusty looked back at Kodi like she was about to say something.


 

As Jenna cought Kodi and Dusty, look at the expressios on their faces, like they were 'busted'.


 

This one involves both Kodi and Dusty.


 

The movie time: 56: 53--- 57: 02.


 

Balto


 

The next 4 are all done by Dusty, and in the same scene, the Boiler Room.


 

7: The first one in the Boiler Room scene involves Dusty. Look at her expression on her face after Ralph says 'And you arn't' he said to Kirby. Look at Dusty's expression, she looks sad, but why? Kirby and Ralph are there... but Kodi isn't.


 

This one involves Dusty.


 

The movie time: 1: 01: 29--- 1: 01: 35.


 

Time


 

8: About 20 seconds later when Kodi comes in and tries to convince his team to 'join the other side' as Dusty said, but look right after she said that, look at her expression, she looks 1/2 sad and 1/2 angry, and trust me of all people, I know that look!


 

This one involves only Dusty.


 

The movie time: 1: 01: 47--- 1: 02: 00


 

Look


 

9: This one is like 10 seconds later at Kodi's speech that acctully does influence the team to go find Duke, but again look at Dusty's expression. And also notice if you watch the movie they continously shows Dusty in the backround during Kodi's speech.


 

This one involves only Dusty.


 

The movie time: 1: 02: 11--- 1: 02: 17.


 

Looks


 

10: This one was probally the most influental of the Kodi and Dusty supporters, this is the one when Kodi leaves his team to find his dad and Duke and maybe even risk his life, and the first to go with him was none other than Dusty. I know some of you are saying 'big whoop', but may I remind you that this is 4 artifacts after Dusty and Ralph's moment.


 

This one involved only Dusty.


 

The movie time: 1: 02: 31--- 1: 02: 37


 

Dusty


 

11: This is the last one I am able to make a screen shot out of, but anyway, after Kodi just saved his dad's tail from a very intence death, AGAIN... look at Dusty's expression when Balto says 'Right on time, Son'


 

This one only involved Dusty.


 

The movie time: 1: 10: 48--- 1: 10: 52


 

Ralph


 

12: This is the final artifact of this subject I can give to you, and this one is not visual eather, but it could also be pretty convincing. The movie is pratacally over, it's spring, most of the snow has melted, I would guess it would be about 2 months later, and Kodi and Jenna are sitting on the mountain top awaitng the 'Balto Flyer' to fly by. As they wait, Jenna says to Kodi, 'Did Dad ever tell when he saw you leading the other that night, it was the proudest moment of his life".


 

Then Kodi says 'Well, not in so many words, I got it', that means Kodi is now a lead dog, and the reason why I am useing these quotes from the movie to support this Kodi and Dusty topic is that Dusty, 6 in a row was involved with Kodi AFTER Dusty and Ralph's little moment on the beach, I believe Dusty fell for Kodi. I don't mean to change the subject or anything but if I recall in like 98% of the movies/stories I have seen/ read, the girl falls for the hero and/or the good guy.


 

I know your probally bored of me blabing but if we all can recall, didn't the same thing happen to Balto and Jenna happen to Kodi and Dusty, just picture Ralph as Steele, Dusty as Jenna, and Kodi as Balto, exept Ralph's not the bad guy. Steele had almost won Jenna's heart until Balto came along and saved Nome and Rosie, wasn't Kodi's deeds somewhat the same, leaving Nome to risk hs own life for others, in Kodi's case, saving Balto and Duke's lives.


 

I don't mean to put down anybody by what they believe, I was only putting down what I have discovered after studying the movie at least 5 times. I'm saying this right now, I respect all opinions, I'm just shouting my own.
 

If any one has questions or if I wasn't clear enough, don't hesitate to PM me or put the questions in the comments.

All research was done by me, and a little by some other memebers. Some of the screenshots were taken by me so don't go searching for some of these.


 

Thank you for your time and please comment, I like to know what the public thinks.

Well, like Troll said, this user doesn't appear to be an active user anymore. They have also mentioned, in the comments, that they felt this article is rather silly.

When it comes to expressing your opinion, don't be afraid to express how you feel. As long as you're being respectful, you're free to post your thoughts. But keep in mind that there are people here who don't like it when people don't sugar coat things, so it's possible that some people may get upset. But seeing as you're only eleven, you shouldn't run into too much, if any, trouble. Someone your age doesn't necessarily have the social skills to set people off in that kind of way.

oh believe me, Mighty,Troll & and Jake razor, i have never thought Kodi and Dusty were in love and never will. i was just giving a complement to the person who made the article. besides Im sure he took a'lot of time making it and don't want to bring him down.

Jotown> I don't believe Medic is on this site anymore, but he once said (in his other article I believe) that hugs mean nothing because they are just friendly hugs... while at the same time keeping eye contact when you're talking to each other or even when the characters are not even looking at each other at all means TRUE LOVE!
Kodi and Dusty are the only two young, single and most appealing characters so people automaticaly ship them, mostly for visual reasons and then, like Mighty said, they are desperately trying to find reasons to canonicaly justify their fan pairings. Like in the basement scene, Dusty obviously looks at Kodi because she's about to convince him to get Balto as a team leader. But no, she looks at him because she's in love, duh. °x°
Your typical shippers lol

This article is far from being "right." Like I said in my previous post, this user tried way too hard to convince people that Kodi and Dusty are interested in one another.

People have been shipping these two (there is also a paring for Ralph and Kirby) since 2004, which was when the film was released. And like any shipping, they make no sense. Instead of thinking logically, people have a tendency to over-analyze things to support these cornball and annoying shippings. The reason why it looks like Kodi's lips are puckered up is because he said the word "do." Saying the word "do" makes you push your lips out to form a circle. Mystery solved.

I've actually only seen the third movie in Bad quality so I can't really say your wrong, and of course you obviously have paid much more attention to the Kodi & Dusty scenes, but before i say your right, i need to know about Dusty and Ralph's moment. i have never heard of this and would like to know about it. also, you never know, the animaters could have just made it seem like they were in love for no reason or on the other hand, if it was official they were in love (or what you might call 'a big deal') i think they might have said something in the movie or actually have a spotlight seen were they nuzzle. anyways, don't mind my other reasons i made, i think you have stated some real good points. great job.

There was never a Balto IV in the works. The only reason people believe that Kodi and Dusty have a relationship is because they've been shipped to death for many years, and because people pick up on the slightest detail and come to conclusion that what they're seeing is true. The fact that it looks like Kodi wants to kiss Dusty, when they celebrate their winning victory, doesn't mean anything. It was just the way the scene was animated. I REALLY wish more people had common sense these days.

I haven't gone through the entire article, but what I did see suggests that the author examined the entire film for the most convincing screenshots. Some of them are nonsense (the last note is a prime example) as far as I'm concerned, and others are only a brief moment in time. You can't pull these types of facts from a screenshot or quote. That is like trying to pull a rabbit from a hat. It won't happen.

I only believe what the directors have to say about a film. Anything else that is floating around the internet may or may not be true. And in most cases, a lot of it probably is false information.

honestly, Universal might have left in these hints and what because they were planning on making a balto4. Since things didn't really go well with the third one they decided to just drop it

Kodi and Dusty could be a couple, at least by my standards. They'd make a really cute one, in my opinion.

I, personally, think you're thinking a little too hard. Its just a cartoon, and its impossible to really see where the characters are looking. I admit they looked at each other a couple of times, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything, I mean, you look at your friends, right? Sometimes for no reason? I know I do, and so do my friends. I admire you though, for your persistence and sticking to your opinions. Great detective work, too. Just try not to think too much ;)

ATTENTION: I am absolutly disgusted by this article and its awful grammer and such! I am even afraid to look at this thing :o . Not to mention over 4,000 people saw this :cry: . And so I plan to edit this, and hopefully clear this whole thing up so it is clear that these observations. That is my fault.

Peace out peeps! :cool:

And Baltohowl: I got rid of those two pieces of evidence a month or two after this article was published, which was a long time ago, and that was the last time I edited this. I don't remember what they were to be honest, years expierance does that to you lol.

Arent you guys critics. lol

My apologies, I wrote this several years ago and I still have yet to edit this. Like I said multiple times in comments (cant remember if I said in the article), these are only observations, there not the real ligitimate deal.

May I inform you guys this was made way before an interview was thought of, and at this time when this article was published this debate was still up in the air. Last time I also checked (to my memory, correct me if I'm wrong) Whinstein never said they were an offical couple, he only mentioned the scene and the possiblity, but there was never an offical answer.

And Im going to say it again, these are observations; something that could be looked at, and maybe take into consideration, that's pretty much it. :cool:

Steet had an interview with the makers of Balto, and they said something similar to they made Dusty and Ralph have a love interest.
You seem to be thinking too hard about a cartoon.
Dusty and Ralph nuzzled and played around, while Kodi and Dusty just.. looked at each other a couple times.

#4 and #11 are probably the most "fake" first off #4 who knows Kodi could be looking at Ralph as well directors make mistakes,take Balto 2 for example,they accidentally made Aleu red!#11 you could tell that Dusty is obviously looking at Balto,I mean look at the direction of her eyes!:!

Thank you to the guys who made those vids. You made my week :cool:

You have a good piont, and I admire you pionted it out maturally, but these are only observations (at least they are now, maybe not as I was wrting this, planning on re-writing). It (could) be convincing how Dusty decides to bring Kodi into the ring knowing by the fact that Balto is very fast.

I can explain 3. She is talkng about Balto, whos "really really fast", and is also Kodi's father, so she is sorta speaking to Kirby AND Kodi.
