The Brother's Hook is the thirty-sixth episode in Season 2 of Tangled: the Series. It premiered on March 24, 2019, and is the fifteenth episode in the second season.
Rapunzel takes everyone to see Hook Hand in concert. However, this brings back bad memories in Hook Foot, as he was always overshadowed and looked down on by his elder brother. Hook Hand is revealed to be employed by the self-centered King Trevor who wants Hook Hand to perform at the wedding ceremony between the royal Seal of Equis: Trevor Jr. and his female mate: Luseal. Hook Foot finally fulfills his childhood dream of dancing by humiliating King Trevor in a dance-off, which he wins with the female seal as the judge. This finally brings Hook Hand to accept his younger brother's dreams and allows him to accompany him on the road.
