Mirror: What show is it supposed to be a lost episode of?
Dorkpool: Pig Goat Banana Cricket.
Mirror: Never heard of it.
Dorkpool: Neither have I. But whatever. Let’s have a bizarre before and after and Riff this bitch.
I was on a cartoon streaming site that had new episodes before they were aired.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): How does the site do this, you wonder? Don’t ask questions.
While searching through pointless SpongeBob episode after pointless SpongeBob episode, I found one for Pig Goat Banana Cricket entitled "Pig.avi".
Mirror: Wow, it’s like trying to find a lost episode story.
I was a bit confused at it being an .avi, but I watched it anyway, brushing it off as someone forgetting to delete the extension at the end when uploaded. Instead of starting with the intro, it went straight into the episode for some reason.
Dorkpool: Intros are for the weak!
It showed Pig in his room. He was huddling against a corner of the room, with a blank expression. It shows a title card reading "Before Pig", and shows Banana yelling at Pig for eating all the pickles. It wasn't cartoon yelling, it was like it was an actual sound clip of someone yelling at somebody and scolding them.
Mirror: Clip taken from a conversation with Gordon Ramsey.
Pig grabbed a knife, and threw it at Banana, injuring him badly.
Instead of it wearing off him like in any other cartoon, he fell to the floor and died, and formed a blood puddle around him. It cut to another title card reading "After Pig". Pig was sitting on his bed with a look of sadness on his face.
Dorkpool: This is the darkest before and after I’ve ever seen.
For a split second, it showed him wearing prison clothing (the orange jacket). Suddenly it ended abruptly, and didn't even show the credits, so I couldn't even get an idea of who made it.
I looked at the episode info, but it only listed "Created by Seth MacFarlane" for some reason. I came to the conclusion that someone added the fake info to prevent any one from finding the person.
Mirror: Or to try and make people hate Seth MacFarlane.
Eventually the man behind it was captured, and sent to jail for murdering and sexually assaulting children, and hiding their pictures in his cartoons. His real name is Scott Cooper. As a kid, Scott was always abused by his parents. The first film he worked on was Hotel for Dogs.
Dorkpool: (Narrator): The last film he worked on was also Hotel For Dogs.
Later in life, he went on to join Nickelodeon Animation Studios, and helped with the Pig Goat Banana Cricket TV series.
He had a few ideas for episodes, but they were always turned on in favor of other ideas.
Mirror: (Exec): I’m sorry, Scott, but I’m not sure if we approve of your ideas.
Dorkpool: (Scott): But it’s brilliant!
Mirror: (Exec): I don’t think randomly bringing in a smoke monster would make any sense.
Dorkpool: (Scott): Not to people like you!
He was angered by this, and decided to go on making his own episodes. Most of the audio, like the yelling and scolding in the episode I watched, was him yelling at the kids he captured and tortured, except edited to match the voices. Thankfully, he only managed this make this one, and thank god he is now in jail.
Dorkpool: Well, until the unnecessary sequel, anyway.
Dorkpool: This story sucks.
Mirror: It’s just sort of your average lost episode story. Person finds episode, episode ends up being all kinds of fucked up, you know the drill. However, here, it kind of feels a bit lazy. Sure, there aren’t many clichés used, but it doesn’t seem very dark or scary. Just a tad odd at most. Really, it’s just kind of boring. Also, there are some questions raised by the story. For example, how did the narrator find out about Scott Cooper? Was he on the news? Did the main character Google him? And what does Scott Cooper being abused have to do with this? Sure, it might be motivation for him to do what he did, but I’m not quite sure it was necessary to the story.
Dorkpool: There are some good things. The story’s short, which is nice, and it doesn’t indulge in a lot of lost episode clichés. However, it’s still not a very good story. But that’s what we think. What do you guys think? Was the story good? Was the Riff good? Do you wish we’d just skip to “After Riffs?” Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
