Hey, guys. For those of you who know a thing or two about Viva Piñata, I have no need to explain. And for those who don't, Viva Piñata is a TV series about Piñata animals (ranging from worms to horses) going through many adventures and mishaps on Piñata Island. It also has a video game of the same name and a sequel to the game.
Now, I have seen a few episodes that infuriated me. There was one episode where a Galagoogoo (despite his inability to talk) tries multiple times to warn the others about an erupting volcano, and when they finally see the volcano erupting and shooting out hot rocks onto the beach and into the ocean, they praise him for showing them a fireworks display.
There was another episode that involves a Horstachio being stalked by a female Badgesicle who claims to be his #1 fan. He wants nothing to do with her until the end of the episode, where he changes his mind about his opinion of her.
I'm surprised he didn't find a way to keep her away from him
Speaking of which, there was this episode where the same Horstachio is forced to go through an attaining order (where you stay as close to the person as possible) with the same female Badgesicle! She harasses him, making him (and the audience) feel extremely uncomfortable. Apparently, we're supposed to find this funny. But it's disturbing and hard to watch, and it's a good thing she didn't try anything else otherwise the age rating would go up.
What really bugged me was the ending. The Horstachio gets pummeled, NOW due to a restraining order, because the female Badgesicle is a celebrity now. Sigh. Who thought this was funny? Who thought that kids would enjoy something like this? And who thought this was a good idea? I really need to get on with what I'm supposed to be doing.
I'm here to talk about the episode 'Candibalism', where a Fudgehog, Fergie, ultimately decides to keep a giant chocolate Bunnycomb -- meant for the Shimmy Shindig -- all to himself. He does this by disguising it as his cousin Candace (Candy for short) and manages to keep anyone from finding out 'her' true identity. When it's time to tango, Fergie dances with 'her', smells 'her', tastes 'her', starts wanting more of 'her'... yeah, I should stop before I end up making people sick. Although he is doing these things to a chocolate Bunnycomb, it's easy to forget that the Bunnycomb IS NOT his cousin (though the episode does a good job putting that disturbing image into your head).
Fergie eats the chocolate Bunnycomb, and this leads EVERYONE to believe that he ate his cousin. He is then put on trial for his 'crime' and has a nightmare about his actions. He wakes up and decides to tell everyone what really happened... before instantly changing his mind. He is then found guilty and is catapulted to the moon (filled with sweet treats), while a receipt for a chocolate Bunnycomb falls down to the ground and everyone realises their mistake.
I think it would have been better if the episode ended like this: after waking up from a nightmare, Fergie comes to a decision. In court, he admits what happened at the Shimmy Shindig. 2 weeks have passed -- in the form of putting Xs on a calendar -- and Fergie, after his friends meet up with him (in the marketplace), apologises for his actions. His friends accept his apology, and Fergie states that he never wants to see another chocolate Bunnycomb again. When another Piñata gives Fergie a chocolate Bunnycomb to have for himself, the Fudgehog panics and runs away screaming. The episode then fades to black as Fergie's friends laugh together.
This, in my opinion, would have been a better ending as it shows that Fergie has
learned his lesson, and has decided to lay off the sweets because of his sweet tooth. Getting catapulted to the moon filled with sweets shows that Fergie has learned nothing from his experience.
