"Big Trouble" is the second segment of the sixty-sixth episode of Big City Greens.


Tilly gets punished for the first time and decides to break bad.


While cleaning the house, Bill sees that mud is all over the place and immediately goes to confront Cricket. However, he is surprised to learn that he is not behind the mess, but that instead Tilly is after having chosen to give the goat a mud bath followed by tap dancing lessons. Bill, struggling not to pick on Cricket is forced to send Tilly to her room as punishment. Tilly is flummoxed by this sudden feeling and decides to take on a bad girl persona, much to Bill's shock. When Cricket learns that Bill had given Tilly extended TV privileges for good behavior, he decides to start acting good so that he can get rewarded. This too begins to emotionally affect Bill.

Tilly goes and meets with Andromeda and offers that she join in her bad girl image; having never been peer pressured before. They choose to call themselves the Monarch Butterflies "because they are poisonous to birds". Tilly, Andromeda, and Saxon, go around town trying to perform bad deeds, but only succeed in indirectly making people's lives better. Tilly finally buckles down and decides to steal a PEZ dispenser from the Snak n Slerp. Andromeda chickens out at the last minute; leaving Tilly to perform the shoplifting herself. She succeeds, but upon returning home, she begins to feel guilty about it and hallucinates the PEZ dispenser is calling her a bad person for performing the deed.

Tilly returns the PEZ dispenser while crying, despite the fact that the clerk clearly does not care and simply gives a half-hearted warning. Back to her old self, Tilly ends up finding comfort in Gramma Alice who tells her that everyone in the family is ultimately good even though they do bad things every now and then and that it is okay. Bill comes in and is relieved to see that his daughter is back to her angelic self. After having been rewarded for his good behavior, Cricket builds a mud ramp and slides off of it and crashes through the living room window. He attempts to reject blame, but sends himself to his room after realizing that no one is buying it.



  • The image of Tilly wearing rebellious clothes was first seen in a promotional image promoting the Season 3 premiere, along with images from "Boss Life", "Green Greens" and "Papaganda".
  • This episode is based on the Edgar Allan Poe story, The Telltale Heart.
  • This episode is also similar to the Hey Arnold! episode, "Eugene Goes Bad" where Tilly starting to become bad is very similar to Eugene starting to become bad.
  • This episode shows someone else working at the Snak n Slerp, however Clark's photo can bee seen where he is apparently employee of the month.
  • Tilly wearing rebellious clothes makes her resemble Madonna in her younger years.
  • Gramma Alice seems to finally admit that Nancy is a good person in this episode.
  • This marks the second time Anna Akana and Zehra Fazal worked together on a Disney series, following Amphibia.
  • The Sip 'n Snak from "No Service" reappears; Cricket does not go there because he has been banned.
  • Moral: Just because you made one mistake doesn't mean you're a bad person.
