Shenanigans and Surprises: The Pupa’s Top Moments in Big City Greens


We are privileged to have the opportunity to bring you exclusive images from Disney Channel’s newest animated series, Big City Greens, and insights into the production process.

Most of the time, we only get to see the final product of a show when it hits the airwaves, but at the same time, there is a need for it to be more closely connected to the original material.

These throwback images from when they were just kids clearly indicate the inspiration they take for their work, thanks to brothers/co-creators Chris and Shane Houghton.

The next time Big City Greens comes to your television screen, you’ll have a good idea of what you’re in for when you watch it.

If you can imagine what it would be like if you could see your real-life childhood home, relatives, and questionable hairstyles as animated characters, then you’ll have a good idea of what you’re in for.

As part of Disney Channel’s GO! initiative, the show will premiere with daily episodes from Monday, June 18th to Friday, June 22nd, with new episodes scheduled to be released daily.

It’s summertime. New episodes will be released every Monday and Wednesday during the first week of the summer season at 10:00 a.m. EDT/PDT.

“Big City Battle” will also debut on the Disney NOW app in conjunction with the series premiere! There, players compete against each other to become members of the Green family.


1. When Pupa Turned Orange (Then Purple)

Even though the Shlorpians are clear about their mission, there is still considerable uncertainty surrounding the specifics. Scorpions and audiences alike need to familiarize themselves with how the Pupa is intended to terraform the Earth and its primary life stages.

It was a big episode for the Pupa in Season 1, episode 8, “Retrace-Your-Step-Alizer,” as it not only got some Harry Potter whistle action but also changed its color from Pantone 101C to orange.

The severity of this problem is attributed to the fact that both Korvo and Terry (the Pupa specialist) are unaware of its implications.

Terry adds fuel to the fire with his blatant ignorance of everything Pupa-related as Korvo erupts with stress gobblers. The Pupa is bartering memories for whistles while the pair go on a retrace-your-stepalizer adventure.

In the end, the little blob had simply eaten something orange. It ended with a twist that involved the Pupa turning purple and the replicants concluding that this was one of many concerns for Korvo, who was still spewing gobblers.

The cliffhanger at the end of season 1 left the audience wondering whether season 2 would start with the end of the world.

2. Accidentally Getting Buried with P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A

Accidentally Getting Buried with P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A

Despite mainly appearing in the background in episode 6, “The P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A. Device,” the Pupa makes for a few laughs.

The episode’s main plot focuses on Korvo and Terry exploring their man cave; Jesse tries (but fails) to break through the glass ceiling in an already ‘woke’ environment. And then there’s the Pupa, who enjoys being smothered by the murderous mom-bot, P.A.T.R.I.I.An until the moment things explode!

As a result of Korvo’s load-bearing rockets installed in the mom-bot, there was an actual explosion. This story is a bittersweet ending as the Shlorpians have to say goodbye to P.A.T.R.I.C.I.A.

and then bury her in their backyard as a final farewell. Despite this, just like clockwork, the Pupa emerges from the explosion’s aftermath just in time to be shoveled into the grave of P.A.T.R.I.C.I. An in the nick of time.

3. Watching ‘The Wall’

Watching The Wall

The Pupa becomes increasingly aware that someone is watching it as the program progresses. The Pupa appears to loom over the citizens of the wall in a way that makes it even more meta (well, sometimes).

The Pupa is immersed in the post-apocalyptic civilization brewing within the division throughout the show. There is one moment when this is painfully evident in Season 2, episode 4, “The Emergency Urbanizer.”

After spending over two months lost in the woods due to a poor sense of direction and Terry’s obsession with Tiki drinks in the woods, the Pupa sits safely at home while the Shlorpians investigate a serial murder case.

There is a layer of comic relief in Halk’s saucer-like eyeballs in the background as Halk and the officers discuss murderous crickets in the experience. In Season 1, episode 7, “Terry and Korvo Steal a Bear,” that is nothing compared to what occurs in “Terry and Korvo Steal a Bear.”

The scene with Tim jumping Cherie’s bones after her jailbreak is one of the top x-rated scenes of the season. What do you think was watching (and recording)? It’s Pupa time!

Even though it was an intimate moment and the Pupa reminded us of a toddler, it didn’t seem wrong. I retract my statement.

4. When the Pupa Telepathically Traded Beautiful Memories for Harary Potter  Whistle

When the Pupa Telepathically Traded Beautiful Memories for Harary Potter  Whistle

There is no doubt that Harry Potter fits into the Solar Opposites universe, but it is difficult to imagine how. Here, the story is not so much about the boy who lived but about a whistle that plays the movie’s catchy theme song (you’re singing it right now, aren’t you?).

In episode 8 of season 1, “Retrace-Your-Step-Alizer,” viewers hear the Pupa construct coherent sentences for the first time. Thank you very much, Liam Cunningham. There is a Pupa that sneaks into Lorraine’s house next door while the Shlorpians are off on their adventures.

This Pupa wasn’t there for the stale cookies because it instantly connects with her telepathically, appearing in a room reminiscent of a similar scene from The Matrix, which is a nod to the central idea of the film.

Using what can only be described as a soothing baritone, the Pupa offers Lorraine the opportunity to access long-lost memories to remember her mother’s face. Lorraine asks the Pupa what it would like in return after taking a psychedelic trip down memory lane.

In a hand-to-face exchange, the Pupa asks Lorraine to override the child lock in the Solar Opposite’s kitchen to obtain two double-A batteries and the Harry Potter whistle for him. As a result of that moment, viewers are jolted back into reality, discovering that the Pupa is still as juvenile as ever.

5. The Time the Pupa Was in an Exotic Animal Auction

Season 1, episode 4, “The Booster Manifold,” has Korvo’s murderous red gobbler on the loose already. Additionally, the replicants are going through some kind of Schlorpian puberty, so there are still some loose ends.

In parallel, a Pupa wanders into a trash bin on the day of collection, embarking on a significant journey.

Known for its childlike naivety and ability to get into seemingly ‘down on your luck’ shenanigans, the Pupa is a favorite. As the Pupa emerges from the pile of rubbish, there will likely be a garbage barge adventure.

Some angry-looking fishermen shoot down a seagull that swoops down on the Pupa, saving it from destruction.

Is there a chance of this happening? If the Pupa is involved, there is always a 100:1 chance of winning! An obscure red door in a dingy alley declares, “we solemnly swear that we are up to no good.”

No, it’s not the gateway to the wizarding world. ‘Rare Collectors Academy’ is written on the door. Pupa in a cage, mistaken for SpongeBob, is taking center stage along with Paddington Bear, a duck in a sailor suit, and a family of Dalmatians.

All the captives are led to sweet freedom by the Pupa’s poise in all of this. After making it home, the Pupa shrugs into a Kenyan package. It may get into some Baby’s Day Out-style shenanigans along the way.

6. Pupa vs. Crows

Pupa vs. Crows

“The Unstable Grey Hole,” the second episode of Season 1, is one of Pupa’s most memorable moments. Nothing is more satisfying than a showdown that solidifies a Pupa’s position as an MVP! In this adventure, a group of crows ambushes the Pupa during its journey through the woods.

An unfortunate bird lunged at the Pupa, who went utterly badass, yanked the bird by the feet, and slammed it into the ground, resulting in an impressive amount of blood.

While the rest of the crows scatter in confusion, the Pupa wears the skull of the brutally murdered crow and raises its hands triumphantly.

Doesn’t this sound like a scene from a medieval battle? Sagan McMahan’s voice is the most adorable aspect of this episode.

The violent scene is difficult to reconcile with Pupa’s infant-like “ow.”It makes sense that the birds would warn their kind about the destroyer of crows, but not all of them received the message.

The Pupa saves Cherie’s life in Season 2, episode 7, “The Unlikely Demise of Terry’s Favorite Shot Glass.”.

The crow swoops in for an easy kill, but in the nick of time, Pupa grabs the bird by its feet and rips it to pieces. There is no doubt that Lightning Mcqueen is the best line of the season.

7. When the Pupa Turned Blue

When the Pupa Turned Blue

This season’s episode 8 concludes the second season not so much with a bang but with a resounding noise that echoes throughout the season.

There is no doubt that the Schlorpians are aware of the fact that the Pupa will have to eat them eventually before terraforming the earth.

Consequently, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise when it turns pacific blue, which according to the informational color swatch, signifies death for them by midnight once it starts to turn pacific blue.

It is only natural for the Solar Opposites to go from burning their earthly possessions with excitement to killing each other to gain more fulfillment (once they realize that death is final).

At the same time, the Pupa is skulking around the carnage sharpening knives, you know, skulking around it all, you know, doing all that stuff.

A surprising discovery is that Schlorpian death isn’t so final after all, as the Solar Opposites resurrect into trees that bear unique fruit that is devoured by the Pupa after their death.

There is still a long way to go before the world’s end. In the meantime, there’s nothing to do but look forward to the not-so-little blob’s new adventures in the near future.
