The Angry Beavers Wiki

A somewhat Christmas-themed episode. Dag is jealous after getting an air freshener for Arbor Day while Norb gets a train set.

Episode Summary[]

Dag holding a pine tree freshener

It's Arbor Day, and according to Dag, Christmas for beavers. After Dag drags Norb out of bed, they go to the door when the postman delivers the presents from their parents. Norb gets a giant train set, but Dag gets a little tree air freshener. Dag tries not to admit that he is jealous, even though Norb offers him to play with his train set.

Dag tries to make best of his little tree such as by dressing up as Muscular Beaver and using it as weapon. When he goes too far trying to sabotage Norb's train set, he ends up destroying the whole thing. Dag gives Norb his little tree in compensation, but then they receive another gift that apparently goes with the tree since it was too big to send together. It's revealed to be a giant remote controlled truck, and Dag just gives Norb his gift.

Production Information[]

  • The pine tree reappears in “Act Your Age”.
