MAD (series)

Angry Bird Management is a parody of Angry Birds on the popular Cartoon Network show, MAD. A psychiatrist named Doctor Robert Hexenblatt tries to rid Birds of their "Angry Bird impulses", and teach them to not try to destroy Pigs' homes (probably not knowing that the Pigs stole the Birds' eggs). He first tries "Squawk Therapy", where he gets a bird to squawk like normal birds instead of laughing menacingly. Then, he tries "Behavior Analysis", where he gets birds to treat pigs nicely, and finally, "Roleplaying", where he dresses birds up as pigs, and himself as a bird and tries to see how birds would feel if someone was trying to destroy their home.

A hint to the Super Bowl Golden Egg appears on a box. On it, there's Red with a golden egg and 13-12 above.

In the Golden Egg, there's the word Rio written with materials. No surprise as there is a crossover game.


The show itself uses an animation every similar to Piggy Tales on its two latest seasons. The birds on the cartoon also portray various similarities to the birds on the game. In an episode, there are a lot of birds that are arranged in a suspicious way, for example, there are three bluebirds on a tree, two yellow birds on another and there is a large robot Red Bird as the main character.

The birds on the show are mostly fat, have big eyebrows and hair that kind of resembles the birds of the series. No surprise as Oddbods could be watched on Toons.TV. The name of the birds in this cartoon is also Angry Birds.

The characters also bear similar personalities.
