So it's about time to I reviewed a season three episode again, and this one seemed like a good choice. The story is by Peter Villa and he partially writes it, but Kathy Waugh is also involved.
The episode begins with a title card on a light blue background. Peep and Quack appear to be standing at the base of a hill; as Peep watches, Quack is standing with his back to a blue marble and stretching. He then hits the marble up the hill with his butt, only for it to come rolling back down to behind him.
We open to a shot of Peep walking, entering the scene on emerging from the opposite side of a bush. He is humming to himself and looking around, and the marble, which is light blue with dark blue stripes, soon comes into view. Joan says that one d…

Well, after the fantastic last episode I reviewed, it seems time to get to some more great ones. Here is yet another one from season four; this one is sister episode of "Trading Places"; it's the second segment of said episode, and rightfully so, as it's a superior episode in every way. And also, it borrows it's title from an incredibly grim book I read some years back. The fact that the Peep writers would sneak in a reference like that continues to say a lot about how this isn't a show only kids can enjoy. So...let's get to it!
The title card is a sea-blue one; it shows Quack and the frog standing on sand, molding a pile with their feet---Quack with his left and the frog with it's right. Quack looks smug as he does his part; the frog look…

Before I start this review, I want to give my thanks to wiki admin Crystal Shadows for her very, very insightful and thoughtful response to my review of "A Duck's Tale". That really meant a lot to me. In almost a decade of knowing the show, I don't think I've ever had such an in-depth conversation about Peep before. Just thinking about it almost gets me emotional---in such a good way.
I'm just going to say that this next episode I'm about to review is one I really, really enjoyed!
We begin on a dark blue background, which shows the birds standing behind a groundhog, who stares at it's shadow on a wall and makes gestures with it's hands. The dreamy music from "The Red Ballmoon" plays in the background.
We open to a wide shot of Peep's can in …

We begin with the title card on a yellow background. It shows the three birds standing in front of one of the mounds of dirt; Quack uncertainly pats it with his left foot.
We open to see the sun just starting to come up in the meadow with the planted accorns that Beaver Boy and the birds made in part one. We pan back to see Beaver Boy asleep amid the holes. Joan gives us a quick recap: when we last saw Beaver Boy...he was doing exactly what we see him doing now.
The screen then goes wavy and yeah, we're doing another dream sequence. We start with a closeup of a crudely-drawn mound of dirt and suddenly a tree come up from it. We pan out to see a crudely drawn Beaver Boy looking at it and going, "Wow!" More grow and he just keeps going "Wow!" …Read more >
I was almost thinking about taking a break, but I guess it can wait. I'm bored with life right now and am at least enjoying getting these reviews out. So here is my new one. I'll just say that this isn't one I was looking forward to reviewing.
We begin with the title card on a light blue background. Beaver Boy is with the birds and holding a tree branch in his mouth, jumping up and down while the birds look confused (Peep and Chirp look at each other strangely).
We open to a sunny sky and hear Beaver Boy blabbing in a muffled voice. We pan down to see...exactly what I just described. No, seriously. They're standing on the edge of Quack's pond. Joan starts the episode by telling us that Beaver Boy is very excited about something, but is havi…
