Porcula is the fifth episode of Angry Birds Toons Season 3 and the eighty-third overall.
This is also the third Halloween special in the series. It was aired on October 23rd, 2015.
On one night every year, the dreaded Porcula comes out to feast, but he should really pay more attention to what he eats.
- Porcula is a pun on Count Dracula, a vampire and "pork".
The story begins with Pig City under a night Halloween condition. The Minion pigs get scared and hid wherever possible as Porcula was ready to look for his victims. Porcula then turns into a bat and finds one suitable pig to feed on, Corporal Pig. Corporal Pig realizes that he was being followed and sure enough, ran from Porcula but failed. Porcula fed on Corporal Pig's blood and soon, he was searching for his next victim. Corporal Pig ended up turning white and fainted.
In another shot, Porcula could be seen laughing when suddenly, Bubbles appeared looking for candy. Porcula decided that Bubbles would be an ideal candidate for his meal but Bubbles' reaction was not what he was expecting (which was scared). Bubbles asked Porcula if he had any candy to which the latter said no after searching for any candy in his procession. Bubbles gets annoyed and leaves Porcula. Outraged, Porcula turns into his bat form in the attempt to suck Bubbles' blood, who was seen getting candy. Just as he was about to strike, Bubbles moved to where the dropped candy was in amazement, resulting in Porcula crashing into the door and falling into Bubbles' bag of candy. Just as he was about to put the new candy into his bag, Bubbles saw Porcula's bat form and was disgusted by it. Just as Porcula was about to rise, Bubbles hits him on the head with his candy, forcing Porcula to retreat.
In another scene, Bubbles enters another estate. In the background, Porcula was determined to not fail this time by turning into a gas. Just as Bubbles was about to knock on the door, he turns around and sees Porcula but then he smelt something bad. Porcula was confused once again and smelt himself but then realized that the smell was actually coming from cloves of garlic. He immediately wanted to escape from the area but fell into a nearby well. Bubbles immediately went back to what he intended to do: collect candy. The resident, a scared Minion Pig, answered the door to give Bubbles candy but became frightened by what he saw from the well that he quickly retreated to his house. Porcula came out again and he would be third time lucky to feed on Bubbles. However, just as he was about to feed on Bubbles, Bubbles became inflated and then let the air go into Porcula. Porcula then let go of the air, causing him to fly around like a deflating balloon back to his castle and into his coffin bed. However, the damage he did to his castle caused a sharp stake to fall right through his coffin and into his heart, causing him to say "Ouch!". As soon as the Minion Pigs realized that Porcula was defeated, they all came out of their hiding place and cheered for Bubbles. Suddenly, the clouds gave way to the full moon. The Minion Pigs were mesmerized by the full moon and turned into werepigs. Just before the credits roll, Bubbles could be seen with an annoyed face.
- Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Bach could be heard throughout the episode.
- Porcula is very similar to King Pig in appearance. Whether they are the same character or Porcula is a separate character is unknown.
- Throughout the episode, occasionally, you can hear Bubbles say "Trick or Treat".
- The Werepigs are a reference to The Rise of the Werepigs.
- This was the 3rd time a classical music piece was played in AB Toons. (Tocata and Fugue in D-Minor) (Bach) The first was in Another Birthday, where Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 was played. The 2nd was in Love is in the Air, where an imaginary Female Opera Pig sang Ride of the Valkyries (Wagner)
- This is Bubbles' latest Angry Birds Toons appearance.
- Corporal Pig can be seen wearing the same white strap from Not Without My Helmet.
- When Porcula fell into his coffin and a stake hit him, he is heard saying "Ow!".
- Red, Chuck and Matilda are listed in the credits, but they weren't in the episode itself.
- Also, Bubbles isn't listed in the credits, but he appears in the episode.
