Right off the bat we get Sparky’s first appearance in TYT. 18 or so episodes after he debuted at the end of MYM Chapter 1, but hey.
Hitch has some good eyes. I had to watch the scene frame by frame to see the handcuff’s chains start to crack. Sorry, “hoofcuffs”.
Oh hey Misty. 18 or so episodes after she debuted at the end of MYM Chapter 1, but hey.
I had a doubletake when I first saw Misty having a cutie mark, but a closer look shows it was drawn on. Like the one Opaline wiped off. On a hunch I checked the one she drew on in MYM and it was also a butterfly.
Misty’s pen has a butterfly on it too. Won’t be much of a stretch to say her eventual actual cutie mark will be a butterfly with all these motifs.
Oh hey Opaline. 18 or so episodes after she debuted at the end of MYM Chapter 1, but hey.
NGL, but I liked Opaline’s 10 second appearance here more than her entirety of MYM. It mostly comes down to her MYM role is supposed to be as an actual story relevant antagonist but TYT’s more whimsical nature meant spoofing her lack of depth hits better.
Speaking of spoofing characterizations, Izzy’s bit with the lasers followed by distraction by literal jiggle keys got a good laugh out of me.
Surprise appearance of Hitch’s critters. Nice how he’s now just rolling with and taking advantage of being a critter magnet now.
3 minutes in and Maretime Bay sure seems to have a fair number of residents just strolling around. MYM lead me to believe otherwise.
I’ve mentioned before that not every joke TYT does is a knee-slapper but that they also don’t have to be. This show does a great job of just filling the airtime with enough “filler jokes” something I’m sure has an actual name but I can’t think of it and visual comedy to keep you entertained until an actual joke drops. Sparky rolling around in haircare products, Pipp just missing him as he walks by with a beautiful full head of blonde hair, and being back to bald in the next scene is a great example of that.
I wonder if Misty will replace Posey for the usual schadenfreude comedy? She would be perfect to use slapstick on as her technically being the bad guy will make the misfortune karmic in a way that Posey wouldn’t get without a necessary setup beforehand.
Yeah I had more fun with this 5 minute episode than the entirety of MYM Chapter 2. The difference ultimately came down to TYT having energy throughout its whole run while MYM kinda dragging to frequently fill most of its 8 episode’s 20 minute runtime.
It also makes me think that there is in fact coordination going on between the MYM and TYT teams. At the very least both TYT episodes that came out right after the MYM Chapters utilize characters or plot revelations that makes it assume you already watched MYM (and in this Dragon Dad’s case, watched all of MYM Chapter 2. Or at least episodes 7 and 8).
Sprout still hasn’t made his TYT debut yet though.
