"Cracking Mrs. Croaker" is the second segment of the fourteenth episode of Amphibia. It premiered on July 9, 2019.

Synopsis

In an effort to make Mrs. Croaker like him, Sprig digs up a secret from her past.

Plot

Sprig happily walks about town greeting everyone and getting jovial responses from them. When he tries getting a friendly greeting from Sadie Croaker, he is surprised to see that she does not return the compliment. He tries to get some kind of response only to be met with silence. He tells Anne, Polly and Hop Pop, but they all meet his sadness with indifference. Anne relates to how an acquaintance of her's named Jamie Kreiger had given her a similar treatment and that she had chosen to ignore her altogether. Sprig completely mishears Anne's suggestion and doubles down on trying to find some way for Croaker to like him.

He tells Anne that he will break into Croaker's house and find her "hopes and dreams" and make them come true. He successfully gets inside her house after she leaves with Anne and Polly following him. They discover a chest of old photos of a surprisingly young and attractive Croaker along with photos of a man named Jonah. Believing that he is her lost love, Sprig decides to find him and reunite them. He easily locates Jonah who eagerly prepares to meet with Croaker. They head back to her house, but to Sprig, Polly and Anne's surprise, Jonah comes to kill Croaker.

Croaker reveals hidden fighting skills and fights back before finally getting Archie, her pet spider, to web up Jonah. She then tells the kids to not tell anyone about what just happened. Sprig breaks down and reveals that he just wanted to get her to like him. Croaker however finds his goal foolish as he cannot please everyone. She admits that the only reason she does not like him is because his "big eyes and goofy smile rub [her] the wrong way". Croaker adds that she does appreciate him going through all the trouble and that she can learn to like him. Sprig then happily dances around proclaiming that Croaker likes him, much to her annoyance.
