An upcoming series on Nick.com about the origins of several of the characters.

The first one is about Mako and Bolin growing up on the streets, called Hustle or Be Hustled.

Take a look now:

Awesome! So it's stories from different characters pasts... I wonder which character they'll do next?

This is like the Mako/Bolin flashback I've always wanted, and the animation style is kinda neat too.

Also how old are they suppose to be? Because I doubt either one looks like they should have post pubescent voices at the time. lol

Youtube link to all users that don't live in the USA.

I'm surprised that they did not chose to do a comic book of this story.

PJ Byrne was doing the same "slightly higher pitched/younger" voice thing Jack DeSena used when he played young Sokka. Or at least it seemed to me like he was doing that.

The short is great! And I'm even more convinced that LOK main problem was lack of time to tell stories like this, which develops Bolin's and Mako's character more. It is dissapointing that they couldn't, or forgot to, manage to fit them into the show, but I hope they use more of these mini-series and the rest of the Books to give us more backstory on everybody, including even Korra, Asami and maybe Lin.

I can't believe that it came out only a few hours ago or something and the fandom has already giffed a majority of it.

I kind of surprised, but than again I am not, since this is just a web cartoon, but they used David and PJ's voices for young Mako and Bolin, I thought they used have other actors to play them. In the Zuko Alone flashbacks, they didn't use Dante for Zuko's voice, though they used Jack's voice for young Sokka in Bato Of The Water Tribe.

It would be funny if Mako and Bolin bumped into Asami. I know they can't bump into Korra because she is locked up in the South Pole at this point, but you get what I mean, maybe bump into the snob bully Tahno. So many possibilities.

This is great! It's nice to see some well-planned backstory for Mako and Bolin. The style is cute, too.

Did anyone else think that splitting the bread in half was homage to Aladdin?

BTW, are we going to see Tenzin and Lin's breakup? I love to see that, but that might be best to be used in the show.

You mean in this short? I assume this was not but a few years ago for Mako and Bolin, less than ten definitely, and I highly doubt Tenzin and Lin's relationship was so recent that they broke up and Tenzin immediately hooked up with Pema and popped out Jinora.

We probably know with certainty that the next episode will be about how Bolin saves Pabu.

Was that...Shady Shin at the end? He looks exactly like he does in LoK even though it takes place at least 7-10 years after this short.

Thought he was only a few years older than Mako and Bolin/joined the Triad a little before they did but apparently he's much much older.

Awww this was adorable! Cheesy I am in love with the art style here! And this is a great way to tell the origins of all the characters without trying to weave it into the plot. This brings me much hope. Grin

Moved to the TLOK Episodes board, added ratings poll, and assigned an episode number in the Specials section of our episode guide (season 0).

Little Bolin is adorable :3

So now they have to go and collect bets. Based on the last shot where you see Bolin and Toza, maybe Bolin convinces Toza to not throw the match and then after that is when Toza takes the brothers in.

Also, we're totally gonna see Pabu in part 2, or maybe in part 3.
