Nobody gives the Plantars any attention!!! So I wanted to talk a bit about what Anne does for the Plantars, especially Hop Pop
(hoping this is coherent enough.. I have a good bit to say and a hard time saying it)
Hop Pop is clearly haunted by the death of his grandchildren’s parents (one of whom was his child, who he never speaks of!! Keep this in mind) and this manifests in many different ways in seasons 1 and 2. He worries about what Sprig’s future will be, thinking he can’t deliver a life that Sprig deserves. He keeps Sprig and Polly in the valley for their whole lives, and, even when he finally allows them to leave, enforces strict overbearing rules in the name of keeping them away from dangers, to the detriment of their enjoyment of the trip at all. He clings to the tradition he has always known, even when his grandchildren voice annoyance. And he hides the music box from Anne, even when he knows that it was the key to her arriving in Amphibia and so likely her key back home.
I’ve said it before, but the way that Sprig calls out to Anne for comfort from his nightmare before his grandfather, and the way he speaks to Anne about his mom in Hopping Mall comes across as if he has never voiced his insecurities about forgetting his mother before, and is more comfortable voicing them to her than he is his blood family (to me, at least; it’s definitely a bit of an interpretation, but it is in line with what we see of the Plantars). When After The Rain tells the story of how Sprig and Polly’s parents died, both young frogs try to stop Hop Pop from going on, Sprig even telling him how ‘that wasn’t your fault’. Hop Pop ignores them and goes on to tell Anne how their parents were killed in a heron attack when he was journeying outside the valley, and that he is sure that had he been there, he’d have saved them.
This is where my ‘keep this in mind’ from earlier comes back. Throughout the entire show, the Plantars never mention the absence of the middling generation whatsoever until Hopping Mall. Not Hoppop, not Polly, nor Sprig, who clearly has guilt over not remembering his parents fully in Hopping Mall. It seems as if the topic became sort of a taboo within the house nearly entirely, and with Hop Pop’s admittance that he believes their deaths are on his back, the overall behavior of Hop Pop and Sprig’s specifically in Hopping Mall makes much more sense.
None of the Plantars want to discuss what happened and how it still was hurting them all. Sprig, afraid of hurting Hop Pop by reminding him of his guilt, keeps his uncertainties to himself, as Polly likely doesn’t remember their parents enough for him to confide in her, and he doesn’t want to burden his younger sister anyway. Hop Pop never speaks of his own child, but their death haunts his mind, and he is determined to ensure that he never drops his vigilance and never fails to protect his family again. He stops them from doing reckless things, yes, but he also keeps them from just being kids. He refuses to let go of the past, both from when he was young, and the deaths he feels he caused. He never brings them outside the valley, or leaves himself- how could he, when a journey outside the valley contributed to the death of his grandchildren’s parents? Collectively, the Plantars simply never really heal and move on from their losses. They don’t allow themselves to confront that it happened and go on living afterward.
Everything changes for them when Anne comes to Amphibia. The Plantars, and especially Hop Pop, teach Anne the value of working hard and help her build her character, of course; but SHE also helps the Plantars loosen up and live again. It is often Anne that incites Sprig and Polly to challenge the way Hop Pop acts, and it is her journey to Newtopia that makes him realize that he is being too hard on them all.
It is when Anne learns Hop Pop hid the music box from her, even knowing how much it meant to her and how it was her key home, that Hop Pop is forced to confront that his fear-fueled actions have devastating consequences on the people he was trying to protect. He made the choice of Sprig and Polly over Anne, and even if he regrets it and wishes to take it back, he can’t just pretend that the reason he did it erases what he did. Even when Anne forgives them, the two still need time to truly heal past that. But they do heal past it!
It isn’t hard to see how Hop Pop, who has been trying to ignore the event up to now, takes a big step when he truly acknowledges how that event caused this major choice he made. Hop Pop loves his family beyond all else, and he is willing to change his ways for the good of them. He already makes a step towards listening to his grandkids in early season 1, when he starts reading the suggestions they make rather than just burning them. While this is, of course, exaggerated for comedic effect, the point still stands for his tendency to cast away and ignore what he doesn’t want to hear, only to learn from it and become a better listener after when faced with consequences. There’s no reason to think that, seeing how his actions effected Anne, Hop Pop wouldn’t evaluate how he could have been hurting Sprig and Polly and make moves toward helping them heal with him.
Overall, it’s Anne’s appearance that begins to shift the Plantars out of their standstill in life and allows them to exist beyond the way they’d been living for years. Anne violently shakes things up for the family and makes everyone adapt to the new status quo her presence brings. Sprig gets his first true friend, Polly connects to another person after seemingly being secluded her whole life, and Hop Pop becomes less rigid in his views and more willing to allow his family to be more free and open. While it is disingenuous to say that the Plantars weren’t happy at all between the middle generation’s deaths and Anne’s arrival, she certainly quite literally forces them to have a different view on life, and pushes Hop Pop to focus on what is present rather than what could have been and what is gone (‘It's time for this old frog to stop pining after what he doesn't have, and start seriously protecting the things he does’)
This found family is absolutely bonkers don’t you see

We tend to underestimate the little moments.  We remember the chaos.  The death-defying adventures.  The deaths themselves.  Those moments are memorable.  But the comfortable silence that we can share at the end of the day? The moments that tell me that everything is going to be alright when I can hold your hand in mind? I think those have made this all the more special.  Thank you for taking this journey with me.  Thank you for holding my hand.  Thank you for being here with me at the end of it all. Thank you.

Hop Pop can really be a hypocrite about his own advice.
