"Cricket Versus" is the first segment of the second episode of Big City Greens.

Synopsis

Cricket is tasked with wrestling a wild animal to complete a Green family right of passage but renounces his family name when he fails to find any vicious creatures in the city.

Plot

Cricket happily awakens one morning to declare that today is the day that he "becomes a Green". Every member of the Green Family has wrestled a wild animal so that they can officially be considered part of the family. Tilly had wrestled a horse (named Frederico), Bill had wrestled a giant hawk and even Cricket and Tilly's mother Nancy had wrestled a wolverine. Afterwards, their historical feat will be chronicled on the Green Family Triumph Quilt. Gramma Alice warns Cricket however that he must wrestle a wild animal by sundown or he will have failed his rite of passage. After a couple of false leads (at restaurants of all places) Alice states that if he fails he will not be considered a Green anymore.

Cricket heads to Big City Park to look for his next prey. He spots Officer Keys' horse Buttercup, but ends up scaring them away. Alice further insults Cricket's attempts with a dog and a squirrel by reminding him that she fought a bear. Cricket begins to doubt that there is anything dangerous in Big City so he fabricates a story of an escaped lion by covering himself in ketchup. Alice sees through his lie and the two get into an argument. This escalates with Alice refusing to give Cricket his favorite food, green bean casserole, and he storms out. While Bill tries to talk Alice down, she refuses to let off of Cricket as she believes it is important. Cricket somberly sits outside and has an epiphany; Alice is the scariest thing and challenges her for his rite of passage.

Alice and Cricket proceed to fight throughout the house and in the front yard. Tilly and Bill rush out and try to stop them with the former declaring that she could just put Cricket's patch on the quilt, but he refuses. Alice declares that Cricket can never beat her and he agrees. He admits that he no longer cares about the rite of passage stating "I don't care if you don't consider me a Green, cuz I feel like a Green, I know I'm a Green and that's something no one can ever take away from me." Realizing that Cricket has significantly matured, Alice changes her tune and accepts him as a Green, only for him to pin her down and successfully complete the rite of passage. Alice adds Cricket's triumph on the quilt and then proceeds to start "round 2".
