Fired Up is the thirty-sixth episode of Angry Birds Toons.
It's windy and cold at the Cobalt Plateaus. Chuck wants to keep the eggs warm, but Matilda and Red have already taken care of it. Frustrated, Chuck decides to warm up... the weather! But his interesting idea will lead to some unexpected results...
The scene starts in Cobalt Plateaus, with gusts of wind blowing everywhere, and Red is sitting on the eggs, in an attempt to warm them with a thermometer stuck between the Eggs. When Chuck comes to check on him, he sees Red shivering, but much to his shock, he sees the thermometer indicating a low freezing temperature for the eggs. He tuts, and he knocks Red off the Eggs and jumps on them. He begins to snuggle up to the eggs in order to warm them uo, rising the temperature to an optimum. Red briefly approves of Chuck, until he lands in the nest and the eggs topple out. Red glares at him angrily, while Chuck tries to look pitiful and quickly leaves.
Red puts back the Eggs, which are shivering uncontrollably. Matilda comes with a pink blanket and throws it over the eggs. This raises the temperature of the Eggs, much to both bird's satisfaction. Chuck looks down from a cliff, envious of Matilda. He finally gets an idea and runs off. On the rug, a dot of focused light can be seen, raising up the temperature. It is revealed that Chuck has brought a magnifying glass at the top of the cliff, focusing the sun's rays. However, when the clouds part away from the sun, the magnifying glass starts to vibrate violently, and much to Chuck's shock, it leaps up and stays there, suspended in the air. The ray of the focused sun becomes immense, changing from a pale yellow to a red and orange inferno. Chuck screams, and this wakes Matilda and Red, who also scream, and a dramatic close-up to the thermometer shows that the eggs has reached the highest temperature, revealing a red haze at the bottom (Eggs are well-cooked). Red and Matilda scream again, and Matilda runs away, while Red takes the eggs and they both run away.
Chuck catches up with them, and the ray of light burns the plateau and chases the birds. When it burns Matilda in a kicking fashion, it forms legs and hands, revealing that it has developed a mind and character of its own. It continues pursuing them. They run around the plateau for a while, where Bomb catches up with them, eating ice cream at one point. Finally, when the birds are not within sight, the light ray kicks a rock into two pieces, revealing nothing. The light ray then karate-chops the bush, also revealing nothing. It briefly pauses to think, and chops the tree behind it in half revealing all the birds in a cramped position. Then they all scream and run away.
Chuck, watching this from the cliff, is horrified. He tries to stop the light ray at the source but doesn't know how. Then, he spots the partially burnt blanket Matilda brough. He rushes down, quickly grabs the blanket, and comes back to the magnifying glass. He throws it over the glass, which stops creating the light ray and falls down. Back on the ground, the light ray starts to shrink, and briefly waves a goodbye, before disappearing in a puff of smoke. Chuck sighs in relief but is glared at angrily by the other birds, with wreckage behind them. Later on, Chuck is knitting another blanket for his punishment, under the influence of Matilda.
