A picture of The Angry Beavers.

Status: Partially Found

"A Tail of Two Rangers/Bye Bye Beavers" were episodes of The Angry Beavers that was produced sometime in 2001 and was intended to be the show's finale, airing in November of the same year. While not much is known about the first segment (besides that fact that Norbert and Daggett try to become park rangers), the second segment caused much controversy among Nickelodeon staff, which led to the entire episode being unaired.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The plot of "Bye Bye Beavers" involves the Beavers receiving mail alerting them to the fact that their show has been cancelled, with Norbert then having to break the news to Daggett that they are both, in fact, cartoon characters. They go on to break the fourth wall, with the voice actors calling each other by their real names (and by the names of other characters they voiced in different TV shows) and criticizing the fact that after cancellation, cartoons continue to rerun without any payment being received by the creators.

At the end of the episode, they both begin vanishing before yelling "APRIL FOOLS!", implying that the episode was "not" intended to be the last, which went on to spawn a rumor that the show was cancelled due of the "Bye Bye Beavers" segment, though most believe this to be false, and that the creators made the segment in retaliation to the show being cancelled.

Response from Nickelodeon[edit | edit source]

Nickelodeon was far from pleased with the episode, namely due to the criticism of reruns, and the fact that it broke a Nickelodeon "rule" which stated that no final episode of a show is allowed to allude to the fact that the show is ending. As such, neither segment from the episode was ever broadcast, although there are rumors that it aired in Australia and Europe.

Release[edit | edit source]

In 2006, during a podcast interview with Richard Horvitz (who voiced Daggett) on avimelman.com,[1] the audio for the "Bye Bye Beavers" segment was played, and has been rapidly circulated since. It is not currently known as to whether the episode ever reached the animation process, as no visual evidence of it has ever turned up. Some doubt the legitimacy/completion of the leaked audio, due to the laughter heard in the background (assumed to have come from crew members). In fact, this laughter actually came from host Avi Melman and Horvitz, while podcasting the clip.

While rumors continue to surround the episode, it is unlikely that it will ever be officially released due to the reason it was canned in the first place. Additionally, Nickelodeon storyboard artist Maureen Mascarina has leaked twelve pages of her work on the storyboard onto her official website.[2]
