When the Titans were hynotized by Mother Mae-Eye, their eyes would become pink. When Starfire swallowed a pie from the conveyor belt, her eyes didn't change color. Then why did Mother Mae-Eye think that she was hynotized again?
Apparently, the only way to break Mother Mae-Eye's spell was to get hit really hard on the head.
If Cyborg could resist control from Brother Blood entirely, how could he not resist Mother Mae-Eye's spell?
Raven claimed in "Apprentice (2)" that if anything was controlling Robin or anyone else, she would have sensed it. So, how is it that she couldn't sense Mother Mae-Eye's control over her or the other Titans before it came or while it was in effect and not do anything about it?
When they all wake up hungry, they all want pie. And when Starfire stabs the pie with the pitchfork, the pie is upside-down and tin foil was in the air, but when they cut to the next scene with their backs to us, it's right-side up.
When Mother Mae-Eye takes Robin's weapons, a bow stick, two birdarangs, and two electric disks are shown. When she is juggling them, a communicator mysteriously appears.
Why did Robin need his gadgets to defeat Mammoth? Has he forgotten his training from "The Quest" already?
When Mother Mae-Eye is shown as the Gypsy, you can see Control Freak's remote, and the Puppet King. How exactly did she get her hands on the remote and the Puppet King, because the Titans had both of those things in their evidence room in "Fear Itself." You would think security in an evidence room would be pretty tight.
During the scene where the HIVE Five were raiding the mall, Seemore puts on a pair of glasses in a close up view. The scene then changes to a farther away view, and the glasses are gone.
Mother Mae-Eye said that Raven had crumbs on her face, but she had pie filling on her face.
Since when do clothes keep Beast Boy from morphing?
Once the Titans are freed from Mother Mae-Eye's spell, they are all still in their new costumes. Beast Boy and Cyborg take off their outfits to fight, but in the next shot showing them all, Beast Boy's bunny suit and Cyborg's rain coat are nowhere to be seen.
As we have learned in the first episode involving the HIVE, Robin's belt has no connection to his pants (his belt comes off, yet his pants remain on). Also, in "The Quest," when Starfire wears his belt, it's off centered, but the pants are the same. So if there's no connection to the belt and pants, how could Mammoth give Robin a wedgie by pulling his belt?
After escaping the oven, Starfire fires her eye beams at Mother Mae-Eye. The next cut shows her being pelted by starbolts.
When Beast Boy is trimming his toenails, it shows that he has four toes in the right place, but his smallest toe is on the other side of his feet which is odd considering in both "The Beast Within" and "Transformation" it shows Beast Boy's feet are normal human shaped. Perhaps this is showing again his ability to partially shape-shift (ie. into an animal with an opposable toe to aid his nail trimming) like he did with his single gorilla arm to cheer Starfire and Raven in "Switched," or in "Birthmark" when Raven stopped time.
Starfire swallows a chunk of a huge pie from the conveyer belt, but then regurgitates a small, whole pie.
Throughout several scenes in the episode, the purple coloration that should be in the eyes of the Titans that are possessed by Mother Mae-Eye is not there.
Mother Mae-Eye: Mother's widdle Twinkle Star is awfully quiet back there. Is everything hunky-dory?
Starfire: Yes, Mother. I am just... pouty-wouty because we were not victorious in battle.
Mammoth: Looks like that belt's only good for one thing!
Beast Boy: Dude! If there's candy everywhere, how come our house smells like old lady?
Mother Mae-Eye: (Alarm goes off) Sweet Marlene, what in the world is that?!
Mother Mae-Eye: These children need more than a time out, they need a good, sound spanking!
Robin: Why am I in a giant pie?
Beast Boy: Why am I in a bunny suit?
Raven: Why am I in a dress?
Cyborg: Who's been redecorating my tower?
Starfire: Uh, perhaps I could explain later.
Starfire: Friends! Awaken! Alarm! The Mother Mae-Eye is not truly our mother, but an evil witch who has tricked us all, and invaded our home, and forbidden our missions, and stolen our boogers, and keeps us under her spell with frequent and plentiful helpings of enchanted pie! (Pants)
Raven: Sooo, what now?
Cyborg: I think she's saying she wants more pie.
Starfire: You are not the only one with powerful eyes. (Shoots eye-beams)
See-More: (Blocks attack) Yeah, but I bet I'm the only one with see-through vision. Haha!
(Starfire gasps, then covers herself)
Robin: (after Starfire destroys some gingerbread men) You broke mother's cookies!
Cyborg & Raven: (gasp) Ooh... !
Beast Boy: (singsongy) You're gonna get in trouble! (the rest join in)
Mother Mae-Eye: Love, love, love! I love love. Love keeps children close! And love keeps mother strong! And now that they couldn't possibly love me more, I can extract all their sweet, nourishing affection by baking them with love!
Beast Boy: So... she's trapped in the pie?
Raven: Yeah, sure, why not.
Starfire: What are we to do with this evil confection?
Cyborg: We could eat it! (Pause) I'm just kidding! Mostly...
Mother Mae-Eye: (Trying to clean Starfire's nose) No squirming now, dear! Mother must get out all your nasty nose boogies!
Starfire: Please! This is not normal! I have long been capable of removing my own boogers!
Jinx: HIVE Five, eat 'em alive!
Starfire: (Spits out pie) Blech. Never have I been so thankful to have nine stomachs.
Raven: I never knew I could feel this much hatred for a pastry.
Cyborg: They're pie-licious!
Raven: Of course they are, mother bakes them with love.
Mother Mae-Eye: (To Raven) Just because you're evil on the inside doesn't mean you can't look nice on the outside.
Robin: Let us go, you crazy -
Robin: (To Mother Mae-Eye) Lady, you are not my mother.
Starfire: My friends are not pie!
Team episode (more of a Starfire episode).
Due to the Gingerbread men, as well as all the candy canes, cookies and the Gingerbread house, this episode has somewhat of a holiday theme to it.
Another bit of Tameranian physiology is showcased in this episode; a long and prehensile tongue (first demonstrated in Season Two's "Transformation," when the mutating Starfire uses it on a bug in the fridge). In this episode, Starfire uses it to silently regurgitate Mother May-Eye's mind-controlling pie from the conveyor belt that she swallowed.
Villain Debut(s): Mother Mae-Eye, See-More, Private HIVE.
This episode continues the Teen Titans season tradition of preceding every season finale with a crazy, silly episode with a nonsense plot:
Season 1: "Mad Mod" before "Apprentice"
Season 2: "Fractured" before "Aftershock"
Season 3: "Bunny Raven" before "Titans East"
This is the second time Raven has used her powers to change her outfit/appearance. The first time was in "Spellbound."
The Mumbo alarm clock appears again. It originally appeared in Starfire's room in "How Long Is Forever?."
The HIVE is shown for the third time.
Gizmo now has a new cyber suit.
New Introduced Villain(s): Mother Mae-Eye, See-More, & Private HIVE.
Look Hard: When Robin is putting on his hair gel in the bathroom, you can see Mother Mae-Eye's true appearance in the reflection in the mirror.
Opener: The Titans awake at Titans Tower a bit confused, and with an appetite. When they all agree on eating pies, a mysterious figure (Mother Mae-Eye), who appeared on the window, gives them each a pie to eat.
Cyborg has a new weapon: a chain saw. It was actually first used in "Haunted."
Private HIVE's name and the way he throws his shield in battle are reminiscent of Marvel comics hero, Captain America.
The HIVE Five are voiced by a total of three actors, one of whom also voices a Titan.
The cashier from "Fear Itself" was shown again at the mall in this episode.
This is the first time in the series that a remotely wacky episode has not had its opening theme song sung in Japanese.
Mother Mae-Eye makes the Titans wear different clothes for a portion of the episode:
Robin - Same clothes, hair down (A la classic Robin. The last time we saw this hair was in "Wavelength" after Robin, Raven, and Starfire drain the flooded HIVE room)
Starfire - A large, green sweater with a red stripe
Cyborg - Rain coat and rain hat
Raven - A yellow dress with her hair in pigtails, tied with yellow bows
Beast Boy - Pink bunny pajamas
Starfire uses the word "clorbag" for the second time, the first time being in "Forces of Nature."
Cyborg's bib reads "I'm a big boy."
Second episode in which it starts with the Titans already caught in the villain's trap. The first time was in "Mad Mod."
Mother Mae-Eye gives the Titans nicknames:
Robin - Robby Wobby
Starfire - Twinkle Star
Cyborg - Borgy Bear
Raven - Rae-Rae
Beast Boy - Beasty Boo
Look Hard: When Mother Mae-Eye is shown in front of the crystal ball during the slide-show, you can see Control Freak's remote from "Fear Itself," the clock from "How Long Is Forever?," and the Puppet King from "Switched" in the background. The shop to the left also displays the Wicked Scary cardboard cut-out from "Fear Itself," and the shop to the right has the Tidwell-style moped first shown in "Employee of the Month."
This is the third episode in a row that Silkie has "briefly" been shown.
Look Hard: At the end, after Mother-Mae Eye was put back into the pie, you could see Silkie trying to eat it.
Jinx, Gizmo, Mammoth, See-More, and Private HIVE are known as the "HIVE Five."
None of the villains except Mother Mae-Eye are referred to by name in this episode, except for Private HIVE, who refers to himself in the third person.
We learn that Starfire (and, vicariously, all Tamaranians) have nine stomachs.
The Titans nearly get baked into a pie.
Mother Mae-Eye feeds off love.
A bit of a perverted joke: See-More makes a comment about see-through vision, and Starfire covers her body with her arms.
The pies that Mother Mae-Eye keeps feeding the Titans are what keeps them hypnotized for the majority of the episode.
See-More & Private HIVE previously appeared at the HIVE academy in "Deception."
Villain(s): Jinx, Gizmo, Mammoth, Private HIVE, See-More, & Mother Mae-Eye.
YTV airdate: May 12, 2005.
When Robin's hair is down, it looks similar to Dick Grayson's original style when he was just starting out as Robin in the Batman comics.
Mother Mae-Eye: Appearance
In her true form, look closely at Mother Mae-Eye. Her green skin, mouth (with a tooth shape on one lip and a cutout for it on the other), and intent on consuming protagonists are reminiscent of the classic Looney Toons character Witch Hazel.
Mother Mae-Eye: (To Raven) Just because you're evil on the inside doesn't mean you can't look pretty on the outside.
Calling Raven "evil on the inside" is in reference to the season's arc story centering around Raven's demonic parentage.
Mother Mae-Eye: "For Sale" Items
Among the items the gypsy woman had for sale, one was a monkey's paw (an item cursed to grant twisted versions of wishes in the short story "The Monkey's Paw"), and another was what looked like the Bottle City of Kandor from Silver Age Superman comics. On the left side, there is also Control Freak's remote -- which is a little funny because Control Freak's power is supposedly based on technology -- and Puppet King without the crown.
Mother Mae-Eye: Appearance
When Mother Mae Eye is in "good" mode, she looks like Strawberry Shortcake, another cartoon character whose powers deal with baking.
Monkey's Paw: Curse
The monkey's paw that Cyborg mentioned being in the fortune teller shop was like the one in the short story, "The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs. The monkey's paw grants any man three wishes, but in the worst possible way.
Gizmo: Robot Suit
When Gizmo activates his robot suit, a sound effect similar to the transform effect from Transformers is heard.
Episode: Sequence of Events
A lot of stuff in this episode is similar to a lot of things that happened in the popular children's book, "Hansel & Gretel." The candy cane house was a major thing, the kids getting cooked, evil witch luring them into a trap, etc. A lot of things had something to do with "Hansel & Gretel."
HIVE Five: Inspiration
The "HIVE Five" is based on the five villains in the Teen Titans comic books which were the Fearsome Five. They originally consisted of Mammoth, Gizmo, Shimmer, Psimon, and Dr. Light. Then, Jinx and Neutron were later initiated in. When they faced Superman the lineup was Mammoth, Gizmo, Charger, Shimmer, and Deuce. Eventually, they split up and then got back together with a different team - Mammoth, Gizmo, Shimmer, Jinx, and Psimon.
Episode Title: Mother Mae-Eye
The title is a simple spin-off of the ever-popular childrens' game: "Mother May I?" A game in which the players can only make a certain motion if it's approved by the "mother."
