Go To

Someone chopped Quack Quack into pieces, and Mr. Cat claims that he didn't do it. He is taken to court to prove his innocence.

"Let's Play Courtroom Drama" contains the following tropes:

  • Call-Back: Kaeloo and Mr. Cat both pull up evidence from previous episodes to prove their arguments.
  • Can't Live With Them, Can't Live Without Them: Even though Mr. Cat often finds Kaeloo annoying, this episode proves that he wouldn't ever want her to actually leave.

  • Clark Kenting: Mr. Cat's "lawyer" is really himself in a pair of glasses and a formal suit.
  • Comedic Spanking: Bad Kaeloo does this to Mr. Cat offscreen.
  • Comically Missing the Point: The only thing Mr. Cat gathers from Kaeloo's video evidence of stuff he's done in the past is that he looks good on camera.
  • Courtroom Episode: Mr. Cat is taken to court for attacking Quack Quack with a chainsaw. Kaeloo acts as Quack Quack's lawyer, and Stumpy is the judge.
  • Deliberately Cute Child: Mr. Cat tries to make everyone believe that he's innocent by looking like a Cute Kitten.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Mr. Cat cuts Quack Quack up with a chainsaw and gets a spanking at the end.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Kaeloo, of all people.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Mr. Cat's reaction when he thinks that he's driven Kaeloo out of Smileyland for good.

  • What the Hell, Hero?: Mr. Cat calls Kaeloo out on manipulating him and calls her a "Judas".
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Mr. Cat is accused of attacking Quack Quack with a chainsaw, and Kaeloo tries to prove him guilty. Mr. Cat says that it was probably Bad Kaeloo, who is aggressive and does things beyond Kaeloo's conscious control. Kaeloo starts crying and says that she's going to leave Smileyland forever to keep her friends safe, and Mr. Cat, feeling guilty, confesses that it was him all along. Cue an Evil Laugh from Kaeloo.
  • You Called Me "X"; It Must Be Serious: When Mr. Cat sees a depressed Kaeloo holding suitcases and walking away, he calls her "Kaeloo" instead of "froggy" or "tadpole".
