  • Flapjack finds out about his past in order to plan his future, and character parodying made easy! :idea:

    I enjoy shows with an origin episode. With origins, it's easier to understand where a character has come from, and makes it easier to understand where a character might go from there. In this case, Bubbie was once just a talking blue whale living a normal life. Until one day, she came upon a clump of seaweed. But it was no ordinary seaweed clump. Inside the kelpy patch, was a beautiful baby boy orphan! Just floating on the ocean. His eyes and face were so endearing, Bubbie's maternal instincts kicked in right then and there. She took Flapjack in (naked as he was,) adopting and raising him as her own child. Now Flapjack wants to be a big brother! Only, Bubbie's reluctance to be honest about the birds and the bees leads to confusion on Flapjack's part, and he searches for a baby brother on another seaweed patch. What he finds, is a seagull. Taking care of a seagull is no walk in the park, or a walk on the docks! But Flapjack tries to be a good-albeit misguided-big brother. Inevitably, there comes a time when seagulls must fly the coop and rejoin their feathered breathern. At least Flapjack feels a bit older having 11 minutes of brother bonding, and knows he's closer to becoming an adventurer! Meanwhile, Peppermint Larry has a passion for many things. One is of marionette performances. Unfortunately, the two new marionette's he gets look like live rats and his Candy Barrel gets shut down by the Dock Hag! But the ever-optimistic, helpful Flapjack tells Peppermint Larry that he can't take this setback laying down, for when life gives him lemons, he needs to make lemonade candy! And so, that's what Larry decides to do! He turns his hobby into a new job, putting on marionette shows, featuring his new puppet star: Pancake! Only, the puppet's portrayal is...a little too close to home for Flapjack's taste! Can Flapjack find a way to show Peppermint Larry it's not nice to make fun of others, even when what is said is true? Probably! :idea: This show rocks! ;)moreless

      Bubbie: Oh, baby, that doesn't mean he's not coming.
      Flapjack: I found his invitation in the trash. And there's a to-do list on the back that says don't play with Flapjack and throw away this invitation.
