Max and Eugene in Peril on the High Seas is the thirty-second episode of Tangled: The Series. It premiered on March 3, 2019 and is the eleventh episode in the second season.[2]


Max and Eugene get into distress and save themselves on a passing ship. Unfortunately, it turns out that it is a prison ship and the prisoners have taken control after a mutiny on board.[2]


Rapunzel and the group are finally leaving Tirapai Island when the cargo ferry arrives, but Eugene and Maximus get into an argument, resulting in them falling overboard.

However, they manage to save themselves on a passing ship, only to learn it is a prison barge where all the criminals have escaped and taken control. It also includes almost every enemy Eugene and the group has faced. Eugene and Maximus attempt to escape, but discover the villains plot to ambush the cargo ferry and set out to stop them.

Meanwhile, Rapunzel and the gang discover Eugene and Maximus are missing and set out to rescue them. Eugene and Maximus argue on how to handle the situation until they are separated and captured. They are forced to walk the plank until Rapunzel and the group arrive in time to save them, leading to the criminals defeat. With the villains foiled, the group arrive safely back on the mainland with Eugene and Maximus reconciled, having come to respect and appreciate each other's different point of views.
