  • Moral of today's stories: Borrowing without permission is Never okay, and being a bully magnet is actually better than Being the bully! :idea:

    I've waited sometime for this new "Camp Lazlo" episode & it seems my patience is well-rewarded! Joe Murray's finally gotten back into hiding adult gags in children's cartoons! 15 years ago, animators couldn't even Dream of being able to get away with an ugly character like the Mayor unless he were a villain. Even when "Ren & Stimpy" did it 12 years ago, it's still creepy to watch. Having the mayor looking the way he does makes sense. Nobody Tries to hide the fact they're disgusted by how he looks! His personality matches the way he looks! The Mayor thinks Lumpus' picture looks uglier than he does! While Lazlo tried to make his float look perfect (& Does in the Mayor's eyes,) Lazlo still realizes borrowing without asking for something 1st is the same as stealing, & gladly returns everything he borrowed back to the rightful owners. The lesson Samson learns, is much harder. Samson's at peace with Camp Kidney & everyone in it. Samson's not a tough guy, but he's fine with who he is. Yet when Samson makes 1 mistake in his Tai Chi routine, he thinks he's really ticked S.M.I.T.S. off as a torrent of many balls come raining down on him! Samson isn't safe, not even when he's naked in the shower! Soon Samson's hiding under a bed where no balls can get him but soon gets angry with his cramped quarters & threatens insanity if another ball hits him! Samson realizes 1 force on Earth greater than a ball's a pillow. Samson's finally beaten the pain getting unfairly dealt to him! 1 great danger of power's Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely! Soon Samson's no longer a likable wimp but a bully gone mad with power! The more powerful someone feels, the greater the fall when the power gets taken away. Samson's nothing without armor & knows it! But he's unexpectedly saved when a bunch of balls hits everyone But him! Samson realizes from now on, he should never be a bully because ulitmately, the person a bully hurts the most is himself! Love this show! :D
