"New Wartwood" is the first segment of the thirty-fifth episode of Amphibia. It aired on March 27, 2021.

Synopsis

Intent on winning over Wartwood, Marcy makes a plan to improve the town.

Plot

Marcy is excited to be living among the people of Wartwood and get firsthand experience being among farming natives. However the townsfolk, in their usual manner, do not take kindly to Marcy's appearance, leaving her feeling dejected. Anne comes to comfort her and tries to explain that it takes time for people to accept outsiders in Wartwood. Marcy believes that she needs "strategy" to get the people to accept her, but in her epiphany ends up knocking over the statue of the town's founder. The townsfolk are angry, but Marcy uses her science skills to fix and clean the statue, much to everyone's astonishment. After getting a "spit of approval", Marcy decides to use her ways to improve the town, having done so with Newtopia.

Anne shows Marcy all the problems with the town such as potholes, out of date street lamps and broken fences. Despite all of this, the townsfolk still do not like Marcy all that much. When she wishes to do something bigger, Mayor Toadstool approaches her with numerous plans that he has to make the town look better. Anne prevents Marcy from taking any of them as she knows that Toadstool's plans tend to go awry. However in the middle of the night, Marcy, too excited to sleep, decides to take up Toadstool's plans to expand the town's appearance. The town looks brighter and cleaner, though a lot of it is just coatings over the preexisting buildings as the Wartwood enjoys its appearance.

Suddenly, the ground begins to give way as Wartwood was built over a swamp and the weight of the additions is causing it to sink. Anne once again tells Marcy that she should have been patient with the people and she calls upon Joe Sparrow to take all the unnecessary buildings and toss them away. The town rises and the citizens criticize Marcy for her careless actions. However, they add that she acted impulsively just like Anne did when she first arrived and tell her that one day they will approve of her, much to her delight. Marcy then proceeds to rapidly rebuild all the buildings in a matter of moments. The episode ends on a non-sequitur with a Toadstool costume blowing up into insects, scaring the townsfolk, only for Joe Sparrow to eat them.
