Hickety Ups is the thirty-second episode of Rolie Polie Olie.

The premiere of this episode took place on Sunday, December 13, 1998 year.


Olie gets a bad case of the hiccups. So Billy tries to help him cure them.


Olie is playing with his toy dragon and castle, speaking in a growly, raspy voice for the dragon. This causes him to get the hiccups. He goes and shows Zowie, who laughs with him and has fun with Olie. The two are joined by Billy and the three of them laugh and joke around and Olie enjoys his hiccups.

The three get snacks and drinks afterwards. Olie finds it hard to talk, eat, or drink because he’s constantly hiccuping. With Olie getting frustrated, Billy tries to help scare the hiccups away but it proves to be a failure. Olie gets down in the dumps not being able to get rid of the hiccups. Billy tries once again to scare him but it still doesn’t work and results in Billy thinking of a different method.

So, Billy attempts to get rid of Olie’s hiccups by having him drink lots of water. Using the garden hose, Olie drinks so much water that his stomach gets bigger and bigger. With a huge, sloshy belly full of water, Olie doesn’t hiccup and believes it worked. But his excitement is short lived when he does hiccup, followed by his bloated belly grumbling due to all the water, forcing him to use the bathroom.

Desperate to rid himself of the hiccups, he goes to his mom for help. Olie’s mom suggests he go see Pappy who has an old fashioned, homemade hiccup medicine. Pappy is in the kitchen mixing some sort of concoction that Olie thinks is the hiccup medicine, only to find out it’s just Pappy’s fertilizer recipe. When asking about the hiccups, Olie realizes that they went away by themselves and he realizes all he needed was time and patience.

Billy runs in excited because he now has hiccups, but Olie is not too happy about that, as he never wants to hear any more hiccups.
