  • Awesome!

    Big Ball: It was a good, fun sports episode. It was funny and a good episode. I also liked the fourth wall breaking (then again, what episode doesn't have fourth wall breaking?). Score: 9/10

    The Brain Freeze: Awesome! I loved seeing everyone as penguins. It was fun to see kind of like this alternate universe and it had a lot of funny parts. It also had a little bit of Chowder x Panini (even if it was one sided)

    Score: 9.5/10

    Overall: 9.5/10

    This was definately two great chowder epis. They were both fun and I recommend them to any lover of the series.moreless
  • Big Ball was pretty horrible,but The Brain Freeze was the best.

    Okay let's first talk about the episodes:

    Big Ball:

    This episode was a very terrible episode.It was horrible,but some parts were okay.The thing that really annoys me about this episode is that music that's from the title card from this episode and another scene.It was so annoying and so stupid.I really hate this episode,but I loved the fourth wall break.

    The Brain Freeze:

    The episode was even better than Big Ball.I love how everybody are penguins and mostly,I love how Panini or Flanini looks at a penguin.It's even better than any other terrible episode.I really love this episode,but I really hate Big Ball.moreless

  • NOTES (5)

    • "The Brain Freze" aired July 9th.

    • "Big Ball" aired July 2nd.

    • Break the Fourth Wall:
      1) Mung askes Chowder to move out of the screen and says "Your head is blocking the vehicle".
      2) After the team breaks, Truffle says "I hate this show" and Mung looks at the screen and says "Don't judge me" after he tells Chowder to warm a bench.

    • Credits: While sweeping, the music begins playing and Shnitzel starts dancing. Then Truffles pops up and says, "What are you doing?!" Shnitzel told her he was just dancing, Truffles showed him how it's done, and she begins boogeying down.

    • Super Mario Bros.:

      The hats that the team wear with red and an "M" symbol on it is a parody of Mario's hat from Super Mario Bros.

    • Ice Age:

      When Gazpacho was a mammoth named Flazpacho, he looks similar to Manfred (Manny for short), the wooly mammonth from the Ice Age movie series.

    • Calvin and Hobbes:

      The long winded name game for the sport Mung Daal and Truffles play against each other might be a parody/tribute to a sport played in the famous comic strip series, which was called Calvin Ball. The sport of Calvin Ball, like the sport played in Chowder had no clear rules, no concrete obstacles, no clear objectives, no one ever really scored, and it was impossible to win the game since the rules and objectives and the obstacles kept changing while the game was being played all the time.

    • Super Mario Bros.:

      The big lizard dinosaur who lifts up the Marzipan City coliseum after Truffles scores the winning goal, looks very similar to the main antagonist from the famous video game series from Nintendo. The antagonist was named Bowser who is also known as King Koopa.
