  • Parasitic Pal was perfect while It's No Picnic was superb

    Parasitic Pal: This episode and It's No Picnic is going to be on Cartoon Network today this morning so I decided to review it before I see these episode. I thought this was a perfect episode. The plot to the episode very nice and funny. Lazlo growing some leech (named Lamar) was very funny. I thought the beginning was funny when Lazlo was walking by and the campers are scared. It was very funny that Lazlo was putting Lamar on his wagon so he can go to the swimming contest and it disappears. The song during the montage was pretty funny as well. Overall, a perfect episode. 10/10

    It's No Picnic: I thought this was a superb episode. The Bean Scouts and the Squirrel Scouts are having an argument who should own the new mud puddle. The Squirrel Scouts challenge them to a pinecone sitting contest. The rules are simple: the last person sitting on a pinecone will not only win the contest but the mud puddle as well. The plot was very interesting and great. The contest was my favorite part in this episode. My score is lower because I think I only laughed twice and this episode seems to focus on action than humor. Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless
  • My favorite episode.

    These two episodes are by far my most favorite. To me, they're the most funniest and the most action-packed episodes on this whole show. In Paristic-Pal, a leech gets attached to Lazlo and he becomes friends with it-FUNNY! And in It's no Picnic, the Bean Scouts and the Squirrel Scout go against each other for a mud puddle-FUNNY/ACTIONPACKED! If you've never seen these episodes, you really need too because these are the best episodes on this show, EVER!moreless
  • "Parasitic Pal" was funny and "It's No Picnic" was a cute episode!

    Parasitic Pal: Lazlo gets a leech (correction, a sea lamprey) that sucks his blood but Lazlo doesn't realise it. Pretty funny, for that Lazlo just thought of being friends with Lamar. Sad taht they tried to seperate each other but it was for a good reason: Lazlo was being weakened from Lamar. Anyway, it's pretty funny that Edward at first really wanted to take the sea lamprey from Lazlo but later, he gets sad about it.

    It's No Picnic: A very cute episode! Very much, I really liked idea of a Boys vs. Girls concept! At their age, that's something they take really serious. Moreover, it was for the mud puddles. I found it cute how Patsy seemed to show her love for Lazlo in front of him but I'm not sure if Lazlo realised it.

    Final Grade: A+moreless
  • Parasitic Pal was a very silly episode because of how Lazlo treated the situation. It was good. It's No Picnic was also good but I disliked it for some reasons.

    Parasitic Pal, like I said, was a very silly episode because of Lamar. The nurse was quite cruel but he was funny to just let it go and let Lazlo die. Raj's and Clam's reaction to Lamar was quite funny. I also liked the way Lamar's disappearance was done in the sense that Edward, despite being Lazlo's arch rival, comforted him and scolded one of the dung beetles for making fun of Lamar. However, the ending which was good was also scary because the nurse was so selfish. It would have been great if they provided more of him in the episode.

    It's No Picnic was an alright episode but i would not consider it to be absolutely fabulous. I liked the relationship between Lumpus and Jane Doe. Ot was getting exciting. Laslo and Patsy's relationship was nice but also rushed, the good thing was that at least Edward didn't blame Lazlo and the Squirrel Scouts couldnt play in the mud puddle anymore. And, like various fans, I really enjoyed the ending when Clam, a character who acts dumb, was smart to think of the idea of climbing up the tree. The first thing I disliked about the episode was already mentioned, which was Lazlo and Patsy's relationship. The second reason was that the girls were quite mean and Jane Doe was so dumbfounded to not do anything about it.

    Overall, these were two great episodes, but like I said, I had a few reasons It's No Picnic had seveal reasons for disliking it.moreless
  • "Parasitic Pal" sucked (get it?), while "It's No Picnic" was a little better.

    I truly did not enjoy "Parasitic Pal". It was wierd, dumb, and not funny at all. "It's No Picnic" on the other hand, wasn't the best ever, but was still a decent episode. I give Parasitic Pal a 1.5, and I give It's No Picnic a 4.9. Overall: (bum!) 6.4!

      Slinkman: Yes, Sir.

      This is what the paramedic beavers said in 'Rocko's Modern Life,' which was by the same creator.
