Fiddle Me This

"The Big Bugball Game"


The gang is out shopping while Hop Pop steps into Ascots Unlimited to buy some Ascots. He speaks with the clerk Wartilda about their respective lives. Wartilda reveals that her daughter got into a prestigious college called Newtopia as she was worried that she would not be able to live successfully due to their ascots not selling enough as they used to. Hop Pop sympathizes vegetable are not selling well either and decides to buy less ascots to save money. As he leaves, he sees the kids reading a flyer for Amphibia's Got Talent, a show where people show off their skills. When Sprig expresses interest in wanting to show off his fiddling skills, Hop Pop has an epiphany. If Sprig wins the contest, they can earn the prize money and be set for life. Hop Pop supports Sprig's decision and immediately gets to work on training him.

Anne is put in charge of designing a costume for Sprig while Polly is put on support. She is upset by this as she wants to sing, but her singing is a high frequency wail that destroys things. Sprig starts his training which aside from fiddling, also consists of strict regiments. Hop Pop continues to push Sprig to the limit with various exercises. While Anne and Polly think Sprig is improving, Hop Pop continues to chide Sprig as he wants him to be perfect for the show. Sprig is upset as he just wants to have fun, but goes along with Hop Pop's strict training.

The day of the show arrives and Sprig goes out to perform in dazzling fashion to everyone's delight. However, a bat appears and swoops Sprig away. Hop Pop and Polly, using the show judges' spring lever, launch themselves onto the bat where Polly discombobulates it with her singing. The Plantars fall and Anne catches them on stage to the delight of the audience and judges who though it was part of the act. Hop Pop apologizes for pushing Sprig hard and he forgives him. The judges award the winning trophy to Anne and the Plantars who excitedly return home while Mayor Toadstool, who was launched off by the spring earlier for having a terrible act, launches the judges away as revenge.
