Plot[edit]

A gorilla attacks Taz and Jake, while they playing with a ball near the jungle.

Episode[edit]

The episode starts out with the larger, powerful, blissful, but semingly weak older brother walking with his younger brother in the jungle, while attempting to tell his younger a story of him and past encounters with other Tasmanian Devil's, when he is suddenly hit in the head with soccer ball that is kicked by Jake.

This act angers the little brother, to which he goads and pressures his older brother into attacking Jake, but during various attempts to attack Jake, the older one unintentionally bashes and slams into Taz instead.

After given a final chance to get Jake, he willfully follows the younger devil into a dark cave where he again mistakens Taz for Jake, is again beaten and ejected from the cave by Taz. Let down and shamed by his brothers utter defeat, the younger brother finally comfronts Jake himself. Unaware of the conflict, Jake offers the younger gorilla to "play ball" with him, the younger gorilla rejects and knocks the ball away, and states his intent to avenge his brother, and uphold family integrity. He starts in a push and name calling fight. The fight quickly ends after Jake forcefully pushes the younger one to the ground, causing the younger gorilla to break into tears.

The young one once again demands his older brother to attack Jake for him, only to be rebuffed, and told to take on Jake himself. After short a crying fit, the older one gives in and again attempts to comfront Jake. On the verge of pummeling the young Devil, Taz comes to Jake's aid.

Now stunned and fully aware that the Devil he was attacking the whole time was Taz, and that he and Jake were related, attempts to get away only to be stoped by Taz. The older gorilla pleads for Taz to go easy on him, only to once again be ruthlessly pummeled by Taz.

The younger gorilla watches on as his brother is beaten, to which then Jake apologizes for pushing him. The young one accepts, and acknowledges that his brother is the one who "started it" and is again offered to play ball, to which the young one happily agrees to. Both Jake and the younger gorilla brother start playing, as Taz and the older brother continue to fight.
