Episodes are mini-events that happen in Wild World and City Folk to working animals in town or the City. Episodes allow the player to learn more about an animal's personal life. A character under the effects of an episode will be depressed and the player will be given an option to ask about what is wrong. Before episodes can happen, certain conditions must be met.

In Wild World[]

In Wild World, Blathers, Pelly, Tom Nook, Mabel and Sable have episodes if their conditions are met, which are different for each character. Series' of episodes occur at frequent intervals throughout the year, and each episode is three days apart (except for the first and second episodes in a series which are four days apart). The player must hear the first episode to hear all subsequent episodes, but episodes can be heard at least a day late if the player does not play on the exact date scheduled for an episode. For Blathers and Pelly, the player can either ask them what is wrong or to get to work (wherein the player can use that character's services as normal). Tom Nook and Mabel will simply add the 'What's wrong?' to their list of options when the player talks to them.
