The Angry Beavers Wiki

Singing lumberjacks invade the forest and the beaver brothers uses strategy to save the forest.

Episode Summary[]

The forest is being invaded by five lumberjacks who not only chop down trees but sing musical-theater style. Norb and Dag are woken up to the sounds and are stunned by this, as the lumberjacks are claiming their trees for themselves. Norb tells Dag to calm down, saying they both knew it would happen eventually. Dag attempts to stop them once and for all until Norb restrains him and calls forth the Mystical 7 Ball. Norb shakes it and chants "Oh, Mystical 7 Ball, how may we overcome the lumberjacks?" The ball answers "You will prevail through patience and superior tactics. Strategy #1: Confront and reason. Confront the lumberjack, reason with him, and he will go away". Dag goes skeptic over the ball, but follows Norb to confront and reason with the lumberjacks.

As the lumberjacks continue chopping down trees, they begin to smell the musk coming from the two beavers. Norb waves and says "Ah! Howdy! What's my neighbor?" The lumberjacks approach and describe them as germ-breeding, tree-biting rats, which offends Dag. As Dag attempts to attack, them Norb restrains him, making the lumberjacks laugh. Norb kindly confronts and reasons with the lumberjacks but without success. Instead, the lumberjacks give the two beaver aggressive sponge-baths.

Back at the dam and all puffed up from the bath, Norb shakes the Mystical 7 Ball and requests additional help. The ball answers "Strategy #2: Infiltrate and exaggerate. Befriend your enemy then convince him that there is another place much better than your place". This answer irritates Dag, who reminds his brother "lumber-jerks hate beavers". Norb poses as a lumberjack in a French accent and with Dag disguised as his hat under the name Jacques Bokou. The lumberjacks introduce themselves to him: Lars, Sven, Peter, Dieter, and Achim. Norb sing to them to find another place to chop down trees. The lumberjacks agree but first they ask Norb to join them for a hearty breakfast.

Back at the camp, the lumberjacks have flapjacks and strong black coffee. Dag goes crazy, eats the flapjacks and asks for artificial sweetener for the coffee, offending the lumberjacks and revealing the beavers' true identities. Back at the dam, with both brothers shaved to resemble french poodles, Norb shakes the Mystical 7 Ball for more advice: "If you are reading this, you asked for artificial sweetener". Dag attempts to break the Mystical 7 Ball, but Norb takes it away and chants "Oh, Mystical 7 Ball, what do we do?" The ball answers bluntly "Ask again later". Norb believes the ball is telling them to resort to violence. Dag runs out of the dam to get revenge.

Norb runs after him only to see that Dag failed yet again. His fur coat is used as a banner and is taking a sponge-bath and singing in a traumatized fashion: "I'm a germ-breeding, tree-chomping rat. A beaver's got no place, working lumber, that's that." Realizing that the lumberjacks broken him, Norb yells out "It's go time, you lumber-monkeys!" Norbert catches up with the lumberjack and slaps Lars in the face with Dag's fur coat screaming "Nobody makes my brother enjoy bathing and gets away with it! I challenge all you singing weirdos to a Timber-Rama!" Norb tells them whoever fells the most trees within 30 seconds wins and the losers would leave and never to terrorize the forest again. Lars sings "We accept. Prepare to meet your defeat!"

The Timber-Rama begins and chop down a lot of trees until they see the very last one named Ye Ol' Pete. The lumbers grab a giant axe as Norb tries to stop them but the lumberjacks trip over a still-traumatized Dag. Norb grabs Dag and heads to the ancient tree and successfully fells it down. Norb finally slaps Dag to snap out of it. The beavers have won, but then realize the Timber-Rama has left the forest completely barren. Having loaded the felled trees onto their trucks, the lumberjacks drive away with all the logs ending their song. Dag sees the Mystical 7 Ball which reads: "I can't believe you'd take advice from a plastic billiard ball replica", leading Norb to tell Dag to get his hammer.

Trivia[]

  • The Mystical 7 Ball is a gag version of the common "Magic 8 Ball", a plastic sphere painted to resemble an 8 ball typically used as a means of fortune telling. Unlike the Mystical 7 Ball, a Magic 8 Ball is only capable of answering yes-or-no questions in the form of simplistic answers, wheras the Mystical 7 Ball offers long, detailed and miniscule answers.
  • The lumberjacks sings whenever they speak instead of talking.
  • The other lumberjacks' names (Sven, Peter, Dieter, and Achim) were mentioned by Lars.
  • When the lumberjacks point at the Beavers upon their first meeting, a sixth arm with a red hook for a hand is seen. This arm does not correspond to any of the five lumberjacks seen throughout the episode.
  • Running gag: Daggett punctuating scenes by squeezing a sponge on himself and going "Eeeeehhhh!"

Errors[]

  • When the opening credits are seen, Robert Hughes is listed twice as Animation Director, when the first instance should have shown who wrote the episode.
  • The Mystical 7-Ball is colored yellow, when in real life Billiard games, 7-balls are brown. 1-balls are yellow.

Allusions[]

  • Broadway - The episode could be similar to a Broadway musical, due to the lumberjacks' constant singing.
  • Magic 8-Ball - A "plastic billiard ball replica" of the Magic 8-Ball, known as the Mystical 7-Ball, is shown throughout the episode.
