Big Time Rush Wiki

"Big Time Cartoon" is the tenth episode of the fourth season of Big Time Rush, and the sixty-sixth episode of the overall series. It first aired on Nickelodeon on July 11, 2013.


Executives want to pitch a children's cartoon about the boys but the guys are not crazy about the idea. Instead they decide to make a video game. They try a motion capture technique but it goes wrong and they are stuck roaming the city in green ball suits. An agency thinks that they are aliens and tries to capture them by chasing them around the city. Finally the guys find a dumpster full of clothes and change out of their suits. They then realize that getting a cartoon may not be such a bad idea after all and they go on to talk to the executives. They have come up with an interesting plot - the boys are on their tour plane but the pilot loses control of the plane and they land on a deserted island only to be captured by monsters. The monsters plan to turn all humans into apes by putting them in a transporter. They are locked up but Carlos uses his pet pig Snort-Snort to break them out. They then fight the apes and make it back to their concert in time.


Katie is watching The Fairly OddParents while Buddha Bob is repairing their apartment. After falling off his ladder, he ends up transforming as Cosmo. As a result, Mrs. Knight ends up wishing for things and Buddha Bob begins to grant them. Thanks to Dr. Hollywood, Buddha Bob is back to normal.
