Hypno Pigs is the twenty-first episode of Angry Birds Toons.
This episode was aired on August 4, 2013.
The pigs resort to hypnosis to get the Eggs, but with Red out for the count, they can't resist a bit of fun...
Red was guarding the eggs under a shadow-casting tree. As usual, three Minion Pigs were waiting in the tree to cause him trouble. In this case, by using a golden pendulum to knock out Red. Red sensed it and faced it, growling at it to stay away. The Minion Pigs quickly swung it, causing Red to be hypnotized to sleep.
Once Red was out, they climbed down the tree to see if their plan worked. One of them used a hand pointer to tap his sensitive chest. When Red did not wake up, the second Minion Pig shook him awake but that did not work either. Finally, deciding to risk it all, all of them yelled and made loud, goofy noises. As Red was still out cold, their opportunity to steal the eggs came. Just as they were about to leave, the two Minion Pigs holding the eggs saw their friend using Red as a toy, causing them to have fun using Red while he was still out.
The Minion Pigs then used Red to do many things in order of appearance:
- Bottle opener with his beak
- A board to play tic-tac-toe on
- As a base for stacking many items
- Using his eyebrows as a mustache
- As a lever for a see-saw
- As a tetherball
- As a doll where Red was dressed up as a girl (and a picture taken for memory)
- As a volleyball
- As a bowling ball
- Last but not least, a projectile for the slingshot
The Minion Pigs laughed for a while but once they realized Red was gone, they became sad. Then they remembered why they hypnotized Red: to steal the eggs. They happily stole it and were about to get away when Red suddenly shot right back at them and knocked them away from the eggs, with it placed back into the nest, and over a cliff. Apparently, Red ricochetted off several walls in the tall cliffs he was shot at. The Minion Pigs then fell off and were not seen again for the rest of the episode.
Red finally woke up to see a mess. He panicked and wondered where the eggs were, just to see them safe and sound in the nest. Relieved, he happily walked back to the nest just to come across the photo the Minion Pigs took earlier. He looked at it and was very shocked as while he knocked out, he was dressed as a girl. He looked at the camera, wondering if the audience saw what happened while he was sleeping.
