Go To

Principal Pixiefrog loses a court case, and decides to throw in the towel, and quit his job, getting him replaced by the dreaded, Substitute Principal Wolverine.

  • Anything but That!: As if being confronted with a lawyer wasn't bad enough, Principal Pixiefrog was court ordered to pay his victim a truckload of cashew nuts.
    • Most of the horrible things Principal Wolverine did, but nothing was quite as bad, as when he forced Mrs. Warthog to actually do her job!!!
  • Big "NO!": Principal Pixiefrog, after being sued.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The reason Pixiefrog got sued and quit his job to begin with was because, there wasn't enough elephant grass on the school's lawn. Well, that grass was finally planted there, and it was so tall and thick, nobody could get into the school anymore. Principal Pixiefrog had to step in and solve the problem, saving the day and helping him realize he still needs his job.

  • Comically Missing the Point: Jake did this, when he and Adam arrived at Pixiefrog's house to save him from turning into a jobless schmuck, and unfortunately find that he has already dropped to the couch and has started watching shopping network antique shows all day.
    Adam: Oh, no! It's too late!
    Jake: No it's not. They have 1,703 Annabelles still in stock.
    Adam: Come on, Jake. There's no time to lose.
    Jake: No kidding. Today's special value ends in three minutes!
  • Continuity Drift: Despite Pixiefrog saying he didn't own a TV in "Amazon Kevin", he had a TV in his home here.
    • Not only this, but this episode officially established that he lived in a swamp, way off in who knows where, but in "A Whole Zoo World", it was officially established that he lived in the Zoo Aquarium.
  • Courtroom Antic: When Principal Pixiefrog's case was just about over, he desperately clinged to The Judge and started crying. He even started kissing his cheek, begging for him to let him keep his money.

  • Creepy Doll: Little Annabelle had eyes that stared into your soul. It got even worse, when the doll tooth whitener was introduced, which was just an acidic fluid, that ate through the doll's face, revealing some hideous skeleton teeth, and unnaturally realistic muscle surrounding it.
  • Dream Intro: The court case at the beginning of the episode turned out to be a dream. Then Pixiefrog woke up in his bed, and started making out with his big bag of money, only for him to wake up again, and see that everything in that court case dream within a dream, was actually real.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Principal Wolverine literally ran CDMS like a boot camp.
  • Fat Slob: Principal Pixiefrog became this, when he quit his job. He turned into a lazy, worthless, nobody who louses around in his chair, watching TV and eating cheese bugs.

  • Fun-Hating Confiscating Adult: Wolverine swiping things from students in the hallways, even if it was essential to their well-being. For instance, painfully yanking a nose ring out of an ox girl, saying "No Jewelry!" or taking off Bull's underwater headphones and saying "No Music!", causing Bull to gasp and gag, having needed his headphones to breathe.
  • The "I Love You" Stigma: Principal Pixiefrog tells his talking bag of money that he loves her, but this is going too far, too fast for the bag of money.
    Bag of Money: "Love" is an awfully strong word. I don't know if I'm ready to say it yet.
  • Its Pronounced Tro Pay: Jake, being the illiterate idiot he is, pronounced "several" as "see-ver-ul".
  • Meet the New Boss: When Principal Pixiefrog retired, CDMS was then placed under the management of Principal Wolverine.
  • Not Listening to Me, Are You?: Mrs. Warthog was completely tuning Pixiefrog out, when he was miserably rambling about how his life and career were ruined by his getting sued.
  • Out-of-Character Moment: It was established all episode long that Principal Wolverine is a vicious, hateful, tough-as-nails, dictator. But at the end of the episode, when he had to leave, he pulled out an umbrella, which magically whisked him away, like Mary Poppins
  • Status Quo Is God: The school needed Pixiefrog to reclaim his role as school principal, instead of letting the business undergo any significant, and long-term changes, with a new leader.
  • Spit Take: Pxiefrog spit out his cheese bugs, when he heard how the new principal was making Mrs. Warthog work.
  • The Television Talks Back: When scripting their dialogue for their news interview, Adam and Jake apparently predicted what Pixiefrog would say, as they wrote responses to his inevitable questions into the dialogue.
    Adam: This kind of thing never happened when Principal Pixiefrog was in charge. He would know what to do.
    Pixiefrog: He would?
    Adam: Yes, he would.
  • Vampiric Draining: A mosquito drained Jake of all his blood, turning him all frail and pasty.
  • We Interrupt This Program: Breaking news happened, while PF was watching his antique shopping show, much to his anger.
    Pixiefrog: Good for nothing boob tube!
