  • April Fool’s Day in Orchid Bay

    This is one of my favorite April Fool’s Day episodes. In the beginning of this episode, June told the Trulekians were on their mission to summon Loki, the god of lies and pranks. However the situation was turned the other way around. Those demons were supposed to stop Loki from plaguing the whole world. My favorite parts were seeing June being pranks by Terry the Trickster. She also finds out that Loki was overshadowing Terry the whole time, and decides to fight him. At the end, Thor arrives just in time to banish Loki back into the Nether Realm.

    It was the best April Fool’s Day episode I’ve ever watched. I hope Judd Winick can make more new holiday episodes really soon.moreless

  • NOTES (7)


    • The wolf June was fighting was most likely Fenris, the wolf god who tried to kill Odin.

    • Episode Title: New Trickster in Town
      The title is derived from the expression used in a lot of shows: "There's a new man in town".

    • Character: Terry the Trickster
      Terry looks an awful lot like Jay Sherman, the main character from "The Critic".

    • Question: Sound Effect
      Listen closely when Loki asks "Banana." The backround sound is taken from the puzzle sounder on Wheel of Fortune.

    • Ray Ray: Except you didn't spit pea soup and your head didn't do a 360!

      Ray Ray is referring to Regan McTavish (Linda Blair) who was possessed in The Exorcist.

    • Thor: Mythology
      In Norse mythology, Thor was the god of thunder and considered one of the most powerful of the Aesir (Norse gods). He was usually depicted as a large man with red hair and eyes of lightning, and rode the heavens in a chariot pulled by a pair of goats. He created thunder and lightning by tossing his great hammer Mjollnir. His appearance in this episode closely matches the Norse depictions.

    • Loki: Mythology
      In Norse mythology, Loki was the god of chaos, mischief, lies, and in later myths, evil.

      He began as the blood brother of the King of the Asgardians, Odin. In early myths, Loki was often heroic, usually acting as Thor's partner on many adventures. However, sinister nature was in early myths, as shown when he spawned three infamous demons - Hela, the goddess of death, the Fenris Wolf, and the Midgard Serpent.

      Eventually, Loki's mischief became malicious. He became a treacherous rake who seduced many goddesses, even the wives of his fellow Asgardians.

      Eventually, Loki's ultimate crime occured - the murder of the beloved god Baldur. A spell cast by Baldur's mother made him immune to all weapons, and when that became well known, the other gods made a game out of throwing weapons at him. But Loki found out that Baldur could still be harmed by weapons made of mistletoe, and he tricked a blind god named Hoder into shooting him with an arrow made of it, killing him.

      Loki was eventually found out and apprehended. The gods chained him to a rock in a cave, with a serpent dripping venom over his head. His wife tried to aid him by catching the venom in a cup, but often she had to empty it, and his pain caused him to writhe, causing earthquakes.

      Myths predict that at the time of Ragnarok, the last battle of the gods, Loki will lead the forces of evil against the forces of light.
