  • It's a Wonderful Half-Episode ;)

    This is one of the reasons I've stuck with Catdog for so long, even after the show was cancelled... it's still my favorate nicktoon. It's a Wonderful Half Life: Cat and Dog get into an arguement when Dog's train accedently smashes Cat's dream house model and in return Cat smashes Dog's train. They then wish they were never attached to eachother. That night, they have a dream where live opposite lives in a classic 1930s cartoon format. Dog is now a full dog with a free-spirited nature, and Cat is a successful and rich cat with a money factory in his "dream mansion". I loved seeing these two personalities clash as two seperate characters. But although friendly, Dog needs a friend, one who will always stick by him and make him feel like he had a home. Cat, although conceited and power-hungry, secretly has nobody to care for except himself. This also gets him in trouble with the Greasers after he fires them for no good reason. Even Winslow as the butler won't stay loyal to him when Cat is in trouble (although, that may be just be Winslow referring to his real life self). In the end, the simple Dog rescues the uptight Cat from the revenge-seeking Greasers, and the two become freinds. They then sing the final number in the musical as they have found their finding their 'missing half'. But the train crashes into the mansion, and the real Catdog wakes up, but their feeling are still there. This was a fantastic episode for the underrated series. Shepard Dog: Eh, Dog follows into the instincts of the sheep dog and becomes the Scottish farmer's knew sheppard. Not as great as the first episode, but it was okay. It was funny when the sheep did the can-can while Cat played the bagpipes, and it was cool how dog rescued the sheep and Cat (in sheep's clothing) from the slaughter house, but that's all I can say. Bottom Line: I miss this show, the new Nickelodeon sucks, Viacom is full of idiots, and Catdog will last forever in my heart.moreless
  • Great episode

    I'm mostly going to talk about It's a wonderful half life because I love it so much.

    Half Life: This is such a sweet episode. Sure, it may not have as many LOL moments as some other episodes, but it's such a good cat/dog brother episode. The songs are great, and it shows that no matter how much you and your siblings may fight, your life just wouldn't be complete without them. Great episode.

    Shepard Dog: Eh, this ones good too. There are a few funny moments, and Cat in a sheep costume is just too cute! Good episode, but not great.

    Overall, both these episodes make me feel nostalgia and remind me of why I loved this show. IAWHL: 10/10
