  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (26)

    • Chowder: So are we gonna f-freeze the gum off? Mung: Heavens, no. That's much to dangerous!

    • (Chowder is purchasing some grubble gum) Chowder: I should get one for Truffles; I remember the last time someone didn't share gum with her. (Chowder trembles in fear as screaming is heard; the scene zooms out to show a man selling screams) Scream Vendor: That'll be one dollar. Chowder: Okay, I'll get this one for Truffles. Sharing is important! Grubble Gum Vendor: Not as important as paying.

    • (Mung Daal and Chowder are hitting one another with dumplings) Mung Daal: Okay, Chowder, I think the dumplings are fluffed enough. Chowder: Awesome! (Chowder smiles and gives a thumb up, only to have his tooth fall out) Mung Daal: All we have to do is pack 'em up! (Mung Daal takes out a tiny purple pack) Chowder: Girl, that sack is whack! Let the Chow-Man show you how it's done! (Chowder pulls out a giant battleaxe from his pocket)

    • (Mung chuckles) Panini: Hi Chowder! Chowder: I'm not your boyfriend!

    • Mung: I was sure that cinnamini tree was around here somewhere. (Shnitzel sneezes, blowing the foliage away from the area) Chowder: Oh, is that it?! Mung: Good eye, Chowder! Here boy! (Mung Daal takes out a treat and tosses it to Chowder, who catches it in his mouth)

    Notes (9)

    • Every time that Chowder or Mung opens the window to call somebody, why couldn't they jump out the window and run?

    • Credits: Chowder wishes Shnitzel was in the kitchen. Mung made a Banana Shnitzel and Chowder ate it. Mung leaves the kitchen to get Shnitzel.

    • This episode breaks the fourth wall when Mung Daal is stuck in the grubble gum along with everyone else and he asked for suggestions and Kiwi shows up saying, "End the show now," and Mung Daal replys, "No, no, that's no good."

    • In the middle of the scene in Grubble Gum, Truffles is seen without her hat and eyeglasses on for the first time.

    • All of the pictures of the monster are all in puppet form.

    Trivia (5)

    • Second appearance of Reuben in Grubble Gum.

    • The huge wad of Grubble Gum shouldn't have covered the Earth because Marzipan City is held up by that giant dude and is not part of Earth. Thus, the gum should have simply rolled over the edge into outer space.

    • Even though Shnitzel has no nose, how can he sneeze?

    • When the Cinnamini Monster rolls the dice, Mung Daal claims that he had rolled a seventy-three. However, he actually rolled a seventy-two, evident by the amount of dots actually on the dice.

    • The screaming vendor said "dollar" instead of "dollop" after Reuben paid him.

    Allusions (6)

    • Cinamini An allusion to Cinnamon. It is also a combination of Cinnamon and Mini, which is fitting, because Cinnamini Powder shrinks whoever goes near it.

    • Man on Radda Radda Radda card In the Monopoly game, there's a card like this, but the man is holding a newspaper and yelling Extra Extra Extra! In this episode, it's just a guy yelling "Radda Radda Radda" at nothing.

    • The rolling gum ball scene and music An obvious reference to the Playstation 2 video game series Katamari Damacy.

    • Game: Apology This is a reference to the Parker Brothers board game, "Sorry".

    • Chowder: (with British accent) I'm hungry, Mung. I really am. This line, as well as the way he says it, is a reference to the 1961 Walt Disney animated film "101 Dalmatians", in which the character Rolly says "I'm hungry, mother. I really am." He also has a British accent.
