Recap / The Amazing World Of Gumball S 6 E 26 The Stink

Go To

Mr. Small goes feral after Gumball & Darwin expose his hypocrisy.


  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Mr. Small talks about the Elmore stink ape. It appears for real at the end of the episode.
  • A Day in the Limelight: For Mr. Small.
  • Death Trap: Mr. Small had set up traps all over the woods. When the stink ape appears, it falls into a pit, which Small warns that it's one of his more clever traps. At first, Gumball and Darwin think it can just climb back up, but then spears drop from above, followed by a giant boulder.

  • Double-Meaning Title: The episode either refers to Mr. Small’s (albeit, mostly unintentional) hypocrisy or the mysterious Stink Ape that Small alludes to and what Gumball and Darwin think they encounter in the woods.
  • Fertile Feet: Fluorescent fungi grow around the stink ape's feet with each step.
  • Nature Is Not Nice: As Mr. Small enters the woods, he quickly finds out that nature is not as peaceful as he once thought. He's attacked by squirrels, almost bled dry by leeches, and even the butterflies try to feed him to a giant leech.
  • Reality Ensues: Mr. Small finds out it is impossible to never harm another living thing if you take into account that you still need paper money, plastic debit cards, microbes in water and gas for your van to do your grocery shopping.
  • Recycled Animation: When Mr. Small talks about recycling, a scene from "The Sock" with Mr. Small talking is reused, but voiced over with another dialogue not present in the original episode. After he's done talking, Mr. Small makes the same pose he had in that scene.

  • Sigil Spam: Upon closer inspection, the Chanax name is hidden all over Coffee and Stuff.
  • Suspiciously Specific Denial: Larry assures Mr. Small that Coffee and Stuff is not affiliated with Food and Stuff, and that neither is a subsidiary of Chanax.
  • Title Drop: Gumball says he smells "the stink of hypocrisy" in regards to Mr. Small when trying to brush him off.
