Star vs. The Forces of Evil: Mewberty / Pixtopia
December 18, 2019 5:42 PM - Season 1, Episode 6 - Subscribe

Star becomes boy-crazy. Marco works in the Shard Mines.

Wikipedia synopsis: Star experiences "mewberty", that is, her skin breaks out in hearts whenever she is near boys. Although Marco thinks it's much like the Earthling condition, Star's is more extreme. She sprouts hearts all over her body, and transforms into a butterfly creature that captures boys and steals them away. Marco turns to Glossaryck, a genie inside Star's book of magic, for advice on how to stop her. / After making prank calls on Star's magic mirror, Marco, Alfonzo, Ferguson, and Star must go to Pixtopia: Land Of The Pixies and pay the bill. When they can't pay it, they are forced to work in a mine shaft. The Pixie Empress flirts with Ferguson.

Okay, I really dig Mewberty:
-Star's transformation is delightfully creepy—those hearts! Those arms!
-I love all the sinister little touches as she amasses her collection.
-Ferguson is surprisingly perfect as the beatific mentor on Marco's quest to find Star's book.
-Janna's fantastic, and she's the perfect contrast to her innocent, unwitting audience. "Can we use it to get my parents to stop fighting?!"

I guess if they have to be gross, Glossaryck eating pudding is a pretty tame way of accomplishing that. I'm also still not really sold on Oskar; he just feels like an off-brand Gene Belcher.


Pixtopia's fine. I liked the pixies.
