Hands-On History is a cancelled episode of Big City Greens. The episode was initially meant to be aired as part of season one, but was cancelled due to the story having major problems.[1]


Taking place some time after "Space Chicken", the episode was intended to explore Cricket and Remy's friendship further. The plot had the two of them attending a museum exhibit lead by a sinister curator named Dr. Ponderstein. Remy apparently "betrays" Cricket over some kind of matter, but ultimately the two get back together in the end.



  • According to Shane Houghton, the episode was cancelled because the team did not feel that Remy could hold an episode on his own and they felt that his actions would have made him too unlikable.
  • When Remy is sulking, he passes by a display of a man holding his hand up while papers are strewn around him. This man is most likely Alexander Hamilton and his pose references the famous musical Hamilton.
  • Chris Houghton confirmed that the episode will never be finished. "[W]e killed that episode for the best of reasons: it just didn’t work. We broke and re-broke the story a ton of times. Reboarded it again and again. Sometimes the best course of action is to take your creation out behind the shed, ya know?" He has expressed interest in releasing the animatics for the episode, but admitted that Disney might not allow them to.[2]
  • Shane Houghton revealed that alternate titles included A Touch of History (which would have made the episode the first to not follow the simplistic title ruling) and Remy Dilemmy.[3]
