Breakfast is a great way to start this episode. I mean the day.
"Still one thing missing..."
Breakfast in the cornfield.
He loves his corn like a child.
Where did he get a bib that size?
He has deep feelings for it.
And dislikes when anyone tries eating it.
"It's okay. The mean birdie is gone."
Lumpy heads back inside, confident that his corn is safe.
He gets breakfast for himself.
"So this is the only food I can eat."
The zoom in on the moldy bread.
Lumpy eats stale moldy bread for breakfast.
Lumpy chews the moldy bread.
Aww... Isn't it cute? It shows when the corn was born and it riding on a pram!
The corn riding the tricycle and having fun with its "dad".
Why does Petunia look like she's scared?
The corn cob accomplished what Lumpy never could.
Just as Lumpy swallowed the bread...
We interrupt this heartfelt moment for more crows!
Lumpy clearly yells "Hey, get out of there!".
How dare those crows?! (Those hands though.)
Lumpy caring for an "injured" corn kernel.
"It's alright... I will always care about you."
Glaring angrily at the crow.
"Why are you staring at me like that?"
Lumpy thinks of what to do.
An even older phone than most episodes.
Cuddles the delivery boy.
Looks like Lumpy, scariest scarecrow ever.
It's even scarier when it moves.
Is that the right place to plant that thing?
Cuddles stops in front of the tracks.
The barrier short-circuits.
"The barrier's not closing?"
Cuddles checks for a train.
Cuddles presses onward, when...
He was THIS close to dying the way Lifty and Shifty did in another episode
No reason for Cuddles to leap out of his vehicle except to die.
The barrier finally closes.
Dibs on the right half! Death: Cuddles
It kinda worked. That crow's scared.
Lumpy sees his feathery foe flying past.
The crow flies into its home.
Lumpy decides to evict that pesky crow.
Only to cause property damage (and set up Toothy's death).
Now the crow's invading his house.
Lumpy really hates that bird.
Now it's even more scared!
Seriously, this is way scarier than that scarecrow.
Lumpy says "Heeeeere's Lumpy!"
This is the part where you scream.
Lumpy's house falls apart from the ruckus.
One last attempt to chop the crow.
Lumpy destroys his home in a psychotic rage.
Lumpy realizes what he did.
They should stop sending people to make deliveries to him.
This electric blanket will keep him warm for sure.
Suddenly there's a beehive.
The hive lands in front of Toothy.
Told ya they should stop delivering to Lumpy!
Toothy looks positive all of a sudden.
Toothy leaps into the pond, forgetting an important expression.
Your struggling is making it worse.
Looks like Lumpy put that blanket to good use.
Lumpy finds his scarecrow's hat.
"Now where is that scarecrow?"
"There it is! In the pond!"
Lumpy finds a new scarecrow (that could scare more than just crows).
I seriously doubt that would keep him warm.
I don't think Mime has ever won in these contests. Neither has Nutty with his partially-eaten candy apples. Sniffles was disqualified because his atomic carrot is inedible.
Uh... You dropped that...
"Take it easy, my little champion."
The electric blanket dial breaks.
Lumpy's corncob gets hot...
And we all know what happens when corn gets hot.
The only injury Lumpy receives in this episode. Still pretty brutal-looking though.
Lumpy worries as his corn begins to pop.
Giggles looks discomforted.
Disco Bear is happy to kiss Giggles, unaware that she just died.
The closest he'll ever get to kissing a girl.
And dat face during death.
His lips haven't touched anyone yet. Death: Disco Bear
Luckily, the popcorn misses Flaky.
Flaky's lucky streak continues.
Me: Think again!
How did she even wind up with this job?
Flaky's lucky streak reaches its end.
Um, Flaky, it's the contestants that are supposed to get their head in the game. Death: Flaky
The Mole of all people successfully hits the target.
At least he did something correctly. Too bad he died seconds later.
He probably died with a smile, but we'll never know. Death: The Mole
Reduced to a burning cob.
Sniffles cover his eyes,
Mime covers his mouth,
and Nutty cheers?
Sniffles and Mime: See no evil, speak no evil.
3 person kill streak! (A.K.A. Triple Kill!)
Wow! Were there any survivors? Death: Pop
Of course, Lumpy's the only survivor (unless you count the three characters
who didn't appear).
What was once Lumpy's blue ribbon-winning corn is now a barren cob.
Lumpy isn't taking it so well.
Lumpy's beloved vegetable may be gone...
...but at least it made great popcorn.
Lumpy hides the giant popcorn for himself. Possibly to bring to a movie theater.
Someone else comes to collect the spoils.
I assume that kernel popped inside the bird's mouth and killed it afterwards.
