'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Mashed Up With 'Hamilton' Tells Cabbage Man's Story

"MY CABBAGES!" Avatar: The Last Airbender gets the Hamilton treatment in a hilarious video telling the cabbage merchant's side of the story through song.


Avatar: The Last Airbender and Hamilton come together in a video telling the Cabbage Merchant's side of the story! Avatar: The Last Airbender has been beloved since the series originally aired on Nickelodeon from 2005-2008. However, since being added to Netflix earlier this year, the animated show has exploded in popularity. An upcoming live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender is also on the way at the streamer. It will allow fans of the original series to once again see Aang and their other favorite characters realized in live-action after the disappointing film adaptation, The Last Airbender in 2010.

Unfortunately, the upcoming show has faced some setbacks. Avatar: The Last Airbender creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko were supposed to serve as executive producers and showrunners on the remake. However, they announced their exit from the show last month, suggesting creative differences. Though those who enjoyed the original series were excited about the upcoming live-action version, they're understandably a little more nervous now. Some even started a petition calling for appropriate casting in regards to age and race of the characters.

Luckily, the drama surrounding the upcoming series hasn't stopped fans from expressing their love for the original. Recently, TikTok user Lauren Hi’ilani uploaded a video as a part of her Hamilton-focused Avatar: The Last Airbender series. In it, she hilariously tells the story of the Cabbage Merchant, a popular background character often irked by Team Avatar. He's even got his own Funko Pop! figure! The video is a take on the Hamilton song "Washington on Your Side," with original, cabbage-related lyrics. Check it out in the video below!

Though this mashup may seem surprising, Avatar: The Last Airbender fans have proven to be a creative bunch. Many have crafted clever takes on the show's most iconic moments and characters, such as the funny "cactus juice" scene. Using Hamilton in this particular video makes sense, as it also saw a resurgence in popularity this summer thanks to the movie's release on Disney+. The Lin-Manuel Miranda musical has been parodied often over the years, with each version proving how universal the music and lyrics are for listeners.


Lauren Hi’ilani has previously released a Avatar: The Last Airbender x Hamilton mash-up for Fire Lord Ozai, which also went viral.

Hopefully, videos like this one remind Avatar: The Last Airbender viewers of the show that started it all. This could make them excited about the upcoming live-action remake again. Though the barrier to success is undoubtedly higher without DiMartino and Konietzko, it's still possible. With any luck, the new live-action version of Avatar: The Last Airbender will honor the spirit of the original animated show the same way Hi’ilani does in her video.
