The Bird that Cried Pig (Angry Birds Toons)
The Bird that Cried Pig is the 25th episode of Angry Birds Toons.
Chuck is annoyed that Bomb always gets the credit for saving the eggs. So Chuck comes up with a plan to become the hero of the day, but unfortunately it goes terribly wrong!
Why It Rocks
- The animation and voice acting, par usual, is very well done.
- The episode starts with a cool scene involving Chuck and Bomb chasing a trio of egg-stealing pigs. That's how you know it's gonna be fun.
- The characters are nicely represented (aside from the former being a little out of character, check BQ#1 for more details, and the brief Chuck abuse).
- Speaking of Chuck, he's the most sympathetic, relatable, & likable character in this episode, which became rare as the show went on.
- The part where Chuck sneaks towards the nest by using his body's edges as feet is pretty funny.
- Unlike in episodes like Where's My Crown? and especially whatever the frick that was, the pigs are quite smart, as they were able to get the eggs for a second time.
- EYNAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! (This means "eggs" in the show's language.)
- The soundtrack is pretty catchy and even a little emotional in Chuck's daydream and ending.
- Chuck's battle against the pigs near the end is certainly the sickest part of the episode.
- As mentioned in WIR#3, the birds are a bit out of character since they just "mourn" the empty nest instead of having a suspicion that the pigs took the eggs or something like that.
- It could be considered a bit of a torture episode for Chuck. That's evidence since he doesn't take any credit for saving the eggs and is even mocked by Bomb and the Blues.
- Bittersweet ending: When Chuck is about to return the eggs to their place, he trips on a rock, causing them to fall from his grasp and near Bomb, who spots them and the birds cheer him for it. Which means all of Chuck's plotting was pointless.
- And even he knows so, judging by his growling towards the camera.
- It seems the eggs are unbreakable, since Double Take and Egg's Day Out.
- When Chuck activates his headband, its color is red as opposed to black with a white stripe.
- The episode's title is a reference to The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
- Bomb shows to have a father-like position as the birds, as he is shown playing with The Blues midway through the episode.
