"If You Give a Frog a Cookie" is the second segment of the forty-eighth episode of Amphibia.

Synopsis

Anne trusts a questionable scientist, who may have found a way to get them to Amphibia.

Plot

Anne has set up a pond, really just a muddy pit, in the backyard for the Plantars after they feel homesick. Despite this, they are completely devastated. Even a batch of cookies, made with insects, are not enough to cheer them up as they have made a miniature of Wartwood. Anne suddenly gets a phone call from Dr. Jan who informs her that one of her contacts may have the answers she seeks, but warns her about visiting her without her consent as some scientists have a rough history. Anne informs the Plantars that Dr. Jan did not tell her anything important, but when they become solemn, Anne gets guilted and says that there is a scientist she contacted and is further convinced to go and visit her.

They head to Dr. Frakes' Brainasium, a children's educational center, and meet with her blue haired and down-to-earth assistant Terri before meeting the deranged Dr. Frakes. Frakes reveals that she has found a way to open portals to other dimensions. She came across this when a couple of months ago, a strange energy surge, caused by Anne opening the Calamity Box for the first time, created a portal that sucked up her portable CD player. Since then, Frakes has been able to create a machine that shows blurry photos of other dimensions. The Plantars ask that she open a window, but it can only stay open for five seconds and even then does not show Amphibia.

Another energy surge causes the Plantars' identities to be revealed. Frakes immediately kidnaps them in the hopes of dissecting them. Anne and Terri team up to rescue them, during which Terri gives up her job with Frakes and Anne uses the cookies she made to get the rowdy children in the Brainasium to attack Frakes. Terri drives Anne and the Plantars home with Anne finally coming down on the Plantars for constantly guilting her. They apologize and promise to be more patient. Terri admits that quitting Frakes was the best decision she made as she can now openly pursue helping them with opening another portal, thus salvaging her scientific career. Sprig then uses his guilting technique so that he can drive, resulting in them nearly crashing.

Trivia

  • This marks the first episode of Amphibia since "Reunion" to be boarded by Cheyenne Curtis.
  • The girl with a purple Mickey Mouse shirt from "Temple Frogs" can be seen at the museum. Another girl with a black Mickey Mouse shirt can also be seen.
  • The title is a play on the classic children's book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
  • Terri's voice actress, Kate Micucci, previously worked on the Disney XD animated reboot series DuckTales as Webby Vanderquack.
  • This episode reveals that the CD player found in "Wax Museum" was owned by Dr. Frakes who lost it during the energy anomaly when Anne opened the Calamity Box which had transported her, Sasha, and Marcy to Amphibia.
  • When Dr. Frakes shows blurry images of other universes, one of them is clearly that of the titular location from the sister series The Owl House, implying that both shows take place in the same continuity. By extension, this would also mean that the show shares the same universe with Gravity Falls.
    • The favor was returned in The Owl House episode "King's Tide" where an image of Anne can be seen in an article that Camila Noceda was reading.
  • Dr. Frakes' Brainasium is most likely a reference to the real world Children's Museum.
  • Footage of the season one intro is used for the flashback sequence.
  • Terri becomes an ally besides Dr. Jan and the Thai Community.
  • The portal created by Frakes physically resembles the Quantum Tunnel created by Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame (2019).
