The Trumpet of Duty is the 11th episode in Season 12 and the 128th episode in the series.


Dr. Beanson stated this message in the beginning "Hello, I'm Dr. Beanson. The one of a kind soldier, that brings you this message: Today, I'm going check Little Guy's house." The next sequence shows Little Guy watching Small Wonder on The Greeny Channel. But then, Dr. Beanson interrupted Little Guy about finding something about himself and his, but not before breaking the fourth wall in a conservation about it being called one of the worst television shows of all time (ironically one of the show's directors, John Bowab, wrote this episode).

Then, Little Guy and Dr. Beanson meets Glaceon. But THEN, Little Guy watches video clips in his Mega Video Clip Player for some unknown reason. The clips shows scenes from Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure, and the 1957 NBC Peacock sneezing. Dr. Beanson asks Little Guy how'd he made the video clip player, and then Little Guy explains how he made it. The episode ends off where Little Guy liked how the show's master animation tinker, James Sharp , made him and Dr. Beanson the world's newest digital hand-drawn animation superstars, since their show aired in 1995. Then they talk about, for a few scenes, Accident, Maryland.


This episode was given mixed reviews from the critics, with only one of them saying that the plot is stupid.


  • James Sharp included a reference to Accident, Maryland in this episode.
  • The director's cut of the episode had Little Guy watching the first Battle for Dream Island episode, "Take the Plunge", instead of Small Wonder. Also, the scenes from Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure were replaced with scenes from Battle for Dream Island.
