The Angry Beavers Wiki

Episode Summary[]

Up All Night Screenshot (49)

It is nighttime in the dam. Norb and Dag wish each other goodnight, but Dag is having difficulty sleeping due to not being tired. Norb asks why they are trying to fall asleep if they are not tired; Dag replies that their mother always made them go to bed when the sun went down. Norb reminds him that since they no longer live with their parents, they can stay up as late as they want to, possibly even staying up all night.

They start the night at 7:35 by jumping on their couch, holding a contest to see who can jump the highest. Norb warns Dag not to jump too high, but Dag ignores his warning and is zapped by an overhead light fixture. After this, Dag is ready to return to bed, but Norb convinces him to stay up a little longer to do what their parents would never let them: prank phone calls. After demonstrating the proper technique to Dag, Norb dials a number for his brother to prank. Not only does Daggett completely botch the joke, but he finds out that his brother set them up to call their mother, who chastises him for staying up past his bedtime.

After eating stuffed jalapeños and watching an old B movie titled The Crawling Spleen, the two begin to head off to bed. Looking at the clock which reads 9:37, Norb realizes that the night is still young; he and Dag decide to stay up the whole night despite showing obvious signs of exhaustion. To prove their awakeness to each other, they compete against each other in various physical activities including tether-ball and a half-hearted pillow fight. Suddenly they hear a strange sound coming from the kitchen, one that sounds identical to the crawling spleen from the movie they had just watched. Wearing improvised armor made from things in their closet, they rush into the kitchen to try to attack it. Norb realizes the sound is coming from the sink, and the true culprit is revealed: a water droplet dripping onto a sponge.

The two exhausted beavers sit on their couch and laugh at their silliness. Seeing that the clock reads 10:34, they resolve to stay up even later. Suddenly, Dag notices that their clock is unplugged from the wall. Running outside, the two are greeted by a futuristic landscape and realize that they have stayed up many years into the future. A horrified Norb asks Dag how long they have been awake, and they both faint.

  • This episode re-aired on November 22, 2007, which was the final rerun of the series on the main Nickelodeon network.
    • Meaning, this episode and "Born to Be Beavers" were both technically the first and last episodes to air on the main channel.[2]
  • This episode is the first for many things:
    • The first speaking role of Rose Beaver.
    • The first episode where Norb and Dag's dam plays a major role.
    • The first episode where the inside of the dam is shown.
    • The first episode where Norb and Dag are shown to like horror movies and eat stuffed jalapeños.
    • The first episode where Norbert and Daggett are shown wearing clothes.
  • The episode's title is mentioned three times by Norbert throughout.
    • The first is when he says, "Or we can even stay up all night!"
    • The second is when he says, "Just you and me staying up all night doing whatever we want!"
    • The third is when he also says later on, "Good. Cause' we're staying up all night."
  • According to the Timeline, this episode takes place exactly one year before it aired.
    • It also takes place eleven years and aired (along with "Born to Be Beavers") ten years before Norbert and his girlfriend Treeflower got married.
  • Innuendo: Norbert and Daggett's laughing and baggy eyes near the end of the episode can be considered as reminiscent of stoner behavior.


  • When Norbert runs through the hallway after getting out of bed, he has sharp teeth like Daggett.
  • When Daggett faces the camera while being scolded by Rose on the phone, his left arm is missing.
  • When Daggett says "Right...I'm wide awake and..." right before he opens his eyelids, both of his arms are missing.


  • At the end of the episode, when Norb and Dag faint in shock when the realize they have been awake many years into the future, the sound effect that plays during the sequence comes from a 1995 Hanna-Barbera closing logo, most notably featured after every short in "The What A Cartoon Show".
  • The B-movie The Crawling Spleen is a spoof of the 1963 American science fiction horror film The Crawling Hand.
