Baby Bottle is the second episode of The Cuphead Show!. It comes after Carn-Evil, and its successor is Ribby and Croaks. Baby Bottle makes his debut appearance here, where he acts as the main antagonist.

Plot[]

Cuphead and Mugman are at home when Elder Kettle goes out for his weekly mustache waxing. Before he leaves, he lays out several rules, which include "no fighting", and not touching his radio. Once he leaves, Cuphead and Mugman immediately start fighting, but are careful when around Elder Kettle's radio. While they're distracted fighting, the doorbell rings, and they answer it expecting Elder Kettle to be back. Instead, Baby Bottle is on their doorstep, in a bassinet, with a note reading "Please take care of baby". Cuphead and Mugman are immediately charmed by Baby Bottle's cuteness, and bring them inside.

Baby Bottle quickly warms up to Mugman, even calling him "Mama", but they immediately cry when held by Cuphead. Mugman leaves to make Baby Bottle some baby food.

Cuphead again tries to play with Baby Bottle, but it sprays him with milk and runs rampant around the living room, almost breaking Elder Kettle's radio. Mugman then walks back into the room and sees the baby, who has just broken the fishbowl, on top of the piano. Mugman's only comment is that broken glass on the floor is dangerous for a baby. Cuphead and Mugman head outside to debate over what the baby needs, but the baby locks them both outside. They both panic, even more so when they hear Elder Kettle's radio turn on. To prevent the baby from breaking it, they both knock the door down to get back in and pull the two apart.

Mugman, still thinking that Baby Bottle is playing around, hands them the teddy bear he's had since he was that age. The baby then rips off the teddy's head like a madman, deeply angering Mugman. He calls Baby Bottle "a bad baby", prompting them to ominously say "Mama". Baby Bottle swiftly lurks around the room, destroying furniture, causing fires, and breaking Elder Kettle's Radio in an attempt to harm them.

Elder Kettle then returns from his wax, and is surprisingly okay with the living room being destroyed, only getting angry when he sees his radio broken. Cuphead and Mugman both point to Baby Bottle. Fooled by the baby's cuteness, Elder Kettle doubts Cuphead and Mugman until the baby rips off his mustache, causing the aging kettle to scream. He calls the baby a "bad baby", prompting Baby Bottle to once again ominously say "Mama", and beat up Elder Kettle. The Cup bros are then forced to drag Elder Kettle out of the house. After preparing, the trio arrive back home, only for the baby to be sound asleep in their bassinet.

Later, they leave Baby Bottle at another woman's house, and shake hands happily.

Trivia[]

  • Cuphead and Mugman fighting but then dodging the radio became a meme.
  • Even though the chandelier broke, when Elder Kettle looks around the house and says "...Dresser smashed in the wall...", it is visible that the chandelier is completely fine. It is possible that Cuphead and Mugman repaired the chandelier off-screen, though unlikely.
  • This is the first episode where someone debuts as an antagonist, albeit not the main one.
  • The original title was "Bringing Up The Baby Bottle". It's unknown why it was changed.
