Mishap is the character who keeps a rattlesnake as a pet and gets his eye bitten by it.

His name was revealed by his plush's product name.


Mishap decided to keep a rattlesnake as a pet. It was never going to be an easy relationship. The game of fetch never really caught on. And neither did the afternoon hose bath. It all came to a head when Mishap offered his rattle snake mustard on a hot dog. Everyone knows snakes only like onions. It ended in tears.[1]

Mishap is a green character that has a rattlesnake clinging onto his eye. He and the rattlesnake look more brownish in the promo poster, but in the game and in the video they aren't.

Game Edit


This will happen if you win

In the game, Mishap is seen holding a hotdog whereas the player have to squirt the mustard on. If the player wins, his rattlesnake will eat the hotdog. If the player fails, the rattlesnake will latch onto his eye.

As part of the update, he has a new game. The player have to spread butter on a pan. If the pan is successfully covered, a piece of bacon will be placed onto the pan, and Mishap will give it to the snake, who eats it. If this not done successfully, the snake will latch onto Mishap's eye again.

He has a Valentines' Day minigame whereas the player have to put the chocolates in a heart-shaped box. If all the chocolates are placed in their designated areas, it is given to snake by Mishap to eat. Otherwise, Mishap will place the lid on the box incorrectly and the snake will attack his eye once again.

The another version is used for Christmas. He needs to dunk cookies into milk to be brown. If he doesn't or puts cookies in the milk, they think but when it moves to screen, the Snake with his Christmas cap will eat you. If he wins, they eat plate cookies. The Snake with the Santa hat throws the plate, making it milk.
