  • Recycling? Mikey's never heard of it. Mitsuki and Guano try their best to teach Mikey what it's all about. Meanwhile, Ozu throws Gonard and Lily into a relationship for publicity.

    This is my favorite of any Kappa Mikey episode so far. It starts out with Mikey throwing trash into the wrong recycling bins. Mitsuki and Guano are astounded that Mikey hasn't been recycling since he has come to Japan, so they teach him "The Recycling Song". Mikey gets hooked, and soon he's throwing anything he can find, including all of his friends' possessions, into their proper bins. Just as Mitsuki walks over, Mikey throws her peronal photo album into the bins, but immediately realizes what he's done and jumps in. He is able to save the album, but all the pictures inside are destroyed. He spends the rest of the episode trying to secretly take pictures of Mitsuki with backdrops resembling all the pictures in her album.

    Meanwhile, Ozu decided that it's time for some publicity. He forces Lily and Gonard to pretend that they are going out, and that they are totally in love with each other. Lily and Gonard go along with it, and each of them realize how cool the other person really is.

    So how does this compare to the other episode of Kappa Mikey? Well, the story is very good. I know that I can relate to Mikey's problem of fixing something he broke to help out one of his friends. The situation also gives you a little glimpse of Mikey's integrity, just when you think that he couldn't get any more selfish. The relationship between Gonard and Lily is pretty cool as well. It shows you that, although a person may not seem to be the kind of person you would want to hang out with, there may be some things in their personality that makes them your ideal friend. I'd say that, as far as Kappa Mikey episodes go, this is one of the best.moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • This episode's title "Mikey Likes It" is a reference to the classic commercial in which two young boys pass a bowl of Life cereal to their younger brother Mikey and are surprised when he actually likes it.

    • The recycling robot,(who hands out tickets and later returns Mitsuki's photo album) resembles Tetsuko, the nanny robot from Super Milk Chan.

    • The scene where Mikey is jumping over the metal kegs in the recycling bin is a parody to the first level of the Donkey Kong arcade game.
