  • Uh...

    I didn't really like this episode, an old bully named Krebs from Otis's childhood comes to visit, which gets Otis scared. So when the barnyard offers to help, they end up getting bullyed. At the end, it turns out he only wanted to apologize to Otis for what happened back in his childhood. I felt like this episode was a waste of 11 minutes after watching it for the first time. In fact, the only parts I laughed at were when Krebs interrupted the "Ask Dr. Pig" segments and bullyed Pig, the running gag of Otis jumping through the well, and at the end when the barnyard animals bully Otis when another childhood bully is coming along. This episode was just as bad as "Otis Season" and I didn't enjoy it that much.

    • Rocko's Modern Life

      This episode is similar to the Rocko's Modern Life episode, "Wimp on the Barbie" when Rocko's childhood bully comes, Rocko gets ready to fight him, but the bully just wants to say he is sorry like the ending to this episode.

    • Krubs: Here's Krubsy!

      This is a parody of the famous scene with the "Here's Johnny" line from the movie The Shining.
