Hey, she is back! Welcome back Jessica!

Heh, if only Zach could have been there... who am I kidding? He would have been mobbed within a second of stepping foot in the forest!

I wonder... if the woodland critters view Zach as the Opener of Ways, do Tiger and Marvin get some residual worship for being his brothers?

Ah, the huggable, violent, sweetheart! Bought by a footlong sub...

Sarcasm and quotes walk the woods
as Tigerbald walks and causes chaos.
Even the 'star' guest that he's pulled in
won't look up to him as the boss.
She steals the show and the sandwich,
the lovely Opossum from the forest.
She knows her TV like Tiger knows Rats
but knows, if he shouts, his face she'll bust.
This is the dog that mocks her Zach
and steals her friends hard earned vote
He's bought her with a mighty sub
but one solitary chance is all she wrote.
Jess the star has made us all cheer -
Did the Opener know she'd be here?

Special Guest appearance.

I should say this arc has a lot of good flavorable characters. and Tiger. Tiger himself has been amusing to watch all this arc and I hope we see more of this in the future.

PS: Somehow I sense Tiger secretly is royalty. *Strangles the Garfield movie to death for that reference*

Yes, they are considered apostles (or the gatekeepers if we follow the Opener's analogy).

So sorry, I couldn't resist...

O POSSUM! Our Possum, your fearless trick is shown;
You have weathered all Tiger cracks, the sub you sought is won;
The paypacket is near, the kids do cheer, all that are watching,
while envys' eyes watch your sub, their chops grinding, not grinning.
But O ham! Pickle! Cheese!
Oh, the dropping crumbs of bread
Where, on the TV studio set floor
She's knocked his show on the head

"Possum Utor Cibum" -> "I can use food?"
It's from the Algonquin "aposoum". The "o" was dropped from the Australian branch of the family... possibly due to the 18th century English accents of Captain Cook and his crew.

("I can has food"?)

Hehe, should Tiger even try to make a children's show? Because he failed at it just like Deflated's "Phineas Wifflebat's Mile high Smile Time". And Jessica made sure he did painfully X3

Unsurprisingly, Tiger was the first Housepets! character to appear on television, featuring in a brief segment on @midnight. It's pretty fitting this happened during an arc focused on Tiger getting his own show.

Tiger did show intent to harm at Bino and Zach and possibly the robot penguin until the latter's thought of destruction made even the neurotic dog flinch. Can Jessica really give Tiger a run for his money and make him the one to play possum? ;)

Utor's less direct meaning is enjoy, as in using it for a purpose beneficial to yourself

Great to see back Jessica, cool character and personality. :D You can own Tiger with one hand, your start there is awesome. ;) BTW, she is to avoid as guest for a TV show, to don't ruin its plans, for sure. Maybe that sandwich is an offer of the ferrets (and this sounds like a miracle), and you Tiger wish to have it? :P
Ah, Tiger, you lazy dog don't know how's the life outside an house, in the hard forest, without your dear TV... Learn something from your "brother" Zach...

"Possum utor cibum" should be translated in "Can I eat some food?" [Posso avere (mangiare) del cibo?]. With "utor" is also meant the logical use of something, taking advance of it, get enjoyment from it. In the case of food, eat it.
Oh, I hope to be right in this, I don't know almost anything of Latin language. :P

Wow, Tiger's willing came really true: be into a TV show (but you'll still have to work about be its host)! :D
Here's the full episode, dated 10th of April; the moment there's at about 9:50. :) Actually, this show is similar to the one Tiger's doing here.
