  • The truth finally comes out about Cat, and Dog goes crazy with meat deprivation!

    If a network is supposed to be getting good ratings from good shows being aired on good time slots, the network needs to keep the good shows that get good ratings on the good time slots and Not completely switch them around! Nickelodeon has 'killed' so many good shows this way. They did it with "Angry Beavers, the Brother's Flubb, Martin Mystery, All That, Yakkity Yak," and unfortunately, with this cartoon to. In my opinion, Nickelodeon is a very hypocritical network. It says that it wants to air good shows on good time slots, but then they turn around and turn the greatest shows on horrific time slots that no normal person would stay up and watch! And they put all the icky von yuck-yuck shows on 23 hours of the day, 6.99 days a week, during the hours everybody wants to watch good, Quality television! At least this show was able to make their last episode one of the best in it's history. It is revealed, at no big surprise to us (but a gigantic surprise to Cat) that everyone likes Dog better than they like Cat. Than when Dog learns that meat is made from animals, he tries to switch to foods that don't have any feelings, but he starts to go insane and starts hearing everything wants to be his friend. Finally, convinced that Cat isn't on the list of things he shouldn't eat, Dog tries to eat his own brother, and nearly suceeds! Fortunately, it is revealed that meat doesn't come from animals after all. It comes from meat trees planted by Johnny Meatseed. All in all, we learn a little, laugh a lot, and say a fond goodbye to the cartoon masterpiece that is "CatDog."moreless

    • Dog being visited by three meat spirits at night is a reference to Charles Dickens's novel "A Christmas Carol", where the character, Ebenezer Scrooge was visited by three ghostly spirits who show him the errors of his ways.

    • During the sequence when CatDog and their parents, especially their dad, the Frog crosses the road, the animation turns into a graphic imitation of the famous 1980's video game "Frogger." The object of the video game is to guide Frogger across the road and then a river safely without getting him run over by cars or trucks, or having him fall into the water.

    • The character appearing in this episode, Johnny Meatsead, is a reference to the famous 19th century American folk hero, Johnny Appleseed. In legend, Johnny Appleseed traveled across the wilderness of the USA planting apple seeds that turned into apple trees. Thus the name, Johnny Appleseed.
