"Cricket's Place" is the first segment of the thirtieth episode of Big City Greens. Along with "Volunteer Tilly", this serves as the first season finale.


Cricket narrates a story where he and Remy are tired of being bossed around and babied by the grown ups in their lives. On a whim, they purchase an apartment in an effort to live however they want without supervision. Things seem to be going well for the both of them, but soon it becomes apparent to the boys that some things are not as great as they seem.


Cricket introduces the episode by explaining how children, for a long time, have been bossed around by their parents and other adults and begins to relate to a personal event that happened to him. Cricket and Remy are spending time together around the house when Bill keeps intruding to tell Cricket to paint their fence. Cricket refuses and tries to get support from Nancy, but she too tells him to listen to his father. Both boys relate their frustrations to each other: Cricket's bossy father and Remy's over protective bodyguard Vasquez. They notice an apartment for sale sign by Don and Dawn realtors and proceed to buy it. The boys happily move their things into their new home with Bill saddened and worried about the situation. Nancy tells him however that Cricket will most likely come to his senses and return home.

Cricket and Remy start throwing a huge party at their apartment and invite all of their friends over; creating a large mess, but having fun. Tilly arrives to ask Cricket to return home, but he refuses as he does not wish to return to a chore filled life despite Tilly telling him that his new life does not have a welcoming comforting family. The next morning, Cricket looks out his window with Bill trying to get him to return home only for him to refuse. Remy notes that their home is a mess now and that they should clean it up, but Cricket does not want to clean as it is considered a chore. Realizing that their home is falling apart and that he cannot survive on his own, Remy calls for Vasquez to come pick him up. Upset at his supposed betrayal, Cricket decides to throw another party much to everyone's excitement and Bill's worry.

When his friends arrive at Cricket's apartment, they are horrified to see the whole place a mess, specifically Cricket having punctured a drain pipe in the wall and letting dirty water flood his home. They leave in disgust and the floor breaks down, flooding an angry Mr. Grigorian's apartment. Cricket notices that his family is having fun eating ice cream. Bill unable to eat, goes and writes a letter for Cricket promising to cut his chores by 50% if he just returns home. On his way to deliver it, he sees Cricket painting the fence and father and son apologize and forgive each other stating that they would rather be together. Cricket notices the letter, but Bill eats it up as they go back inside. Cricket finishes his story where it is revealed to have been told to a random old lady on a bench at the park. The old lady responds in utter confusion over being spoken to when she did not even ask him anything.



  • This episode features the return of Don and Dawn from "Family Legacy".
  • This episode, along with "Volunteer Tilly", serves as the season one finale.
  • Cricket being revealed to be talking to a random stranger at the end is possibly a reference to Forrest Gump (in that he is talking to her on a bench), or a reference to Blue Jasmine (where the main character starts random conversations with people regardless if they wanted to listen or not).
  • Bill telling Cricket and Remy to stop banging on the pipes foreshadows the sewer water flood when Cricket did the same thing with the wall pipes in the apartment.
  • Benny appears in this episode, but does not speak.
  • Kiki appears and speaks, but her voice actress is only credited as additional voices.
  • This episode features narration from Cricket.
  • The adults talking at the beginning of the episode sound like the adults that speak in the classic Peanuts media franchise.
  • When Cricket is drumming on the pipes in the apartment, he parodies the famous lyric in Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall - Part 2": "We don't need no education", as "We don't go to Ant Corner".
  • Morals:
    • Life without discipline has drawbacks.
    • Always listen to your family.
