1.2 The Cake Badge
Episode 2 of Hey Duggee, The Cake Badge, introduces some new characters to the Hey Duggee universe. I’m not sure at which point the writers decided that the rabbits are hippies, the trait doesn’t serve any purpose in this episode. It is an early indication of the diverse world of Duggee and the Squirrels.
There are still clues that this is an early episode. The most obvious is that it seems out of character for Happy to randomly eat an unattended cake. By the end of the second half of season one, I am confident that the writers would have come up with a more nuanced set-up. It’s also one of the shortest episode summaries I have written. The story is extremely sparse in comparison to other episodes.
