    Chowder's Catering Company: Chowder has created what he thinks is his best dish creation ever!

Oddly enough, Chowder ends up getting some unusual customers who think that the Foof sandwich is absolutely amazing! And with such demand for the dish, Chowder is happy to oblige, unaware that his new friends will do anything to make sure that Chowder can keep making his Foof sandwiches. This was a perfect episode of "Chowder". The whole entire episode just cracked me up and I loved how Chowder had his restaurant for all these dusts. I also thought it was hilarious how the dusts put Mung Daal, Truffle, and Snitzel inside a barrel and were almost going to push them in a deep hole. Overall, this review was short because the summary took up most of it. 10/10



    The Catch Phrase: Chowder tries to convince Mung that a catch phrase makes food taste better. This episode was not quite as good as the first pairing but I still really enjoyed it very much and I think it's worth watching for anyone that loves to watch this show and the jokes are most certainly the most hilarious stuff ever. Chowder being a fanatic of that chef who says the catch phrase "Wazam" was very funny. Mung Daal trying to come up with a catch phrase but can't think of any was funny as well. Everything about this episode was just very funny and well done. My score is just a bit low because I thought the ending was a little bit of a letdown and it could've ended better. Overall, an almost perfect episode of "Chowder". 9.5/10moreless
  • Another awsome episode!

    9.5
    Loved this episode! Great! Probably the best one yet of season 2. But all the episodes are great. Loved when the chef was saying Wazzam ( or however you say it)! Those little Black things were so funny! I guess they are dust mites or i dont know. But they were cute and funny! The Catch Phrases that mung used were so funny! But what was even funnier, was when Mung got mad and said a bad word! And chowder liked the Catch phrase and said it! I wonder what bad word it was. But that scene was funny! Overall great episode.moreless
  • "Chowder's Catering Company" reminded me of another episode, but that's not to say it wasn't good!

    8.5
    "Chowder's Catering Comapny" - This one is sort of like "Burple Nurples" with an alternate ending. Chowder wants to be a real chef again and makes this strange sandwich (by strange, I mean there was shoe in it!) that he calls "Foof n' Scoops". he gets Mungs to try it and does not get a good review from him. Then he finds these little creatures that love his dish and keep wanting more. Can Chowder run his own catering business without Mung and the rest knowing? A little unoriginal, but pretty good.



    "The Catch Phrase" - Chowder tells Mung about Holland Daze, the Alluminum Chef (parody of the Iron Chef) and supposedly the best chef in the world - all because he has an amazing catch phrase! Mung, jealous of the attention Holland Daze ia getting, decides to get a catch phrase of his own - but that proves to be quite difficult! Will he find an impressive catch phrase! Funny and episode and I loved the ending!



    I recommend it to all Chowder fans!moreless
  • What's happening so far.

    6.0
    So far I'm liking the show a lot more. I'm glad that the character design is improving trough the episodes and the background music is still good. There are a few things that are trowing me off a little that I hope doesn't put the show to a finish. One thing is that I think Chowder's personality has changed since the first season. I don't know exactly what it is but after the first 17 episodes chowder's voice isn't really charming anymore and he cries a lot quicker and more often now. For example like I said in ep. 23 he cried then ran away in both of the episodes. Another thing I'm getting tired of is that whenever they are looking for him, at the end of the episode Mung start saying they will never see Chowder again and stuff like that, then oh my goodness HE'S BACK. This kind of plot happened like 5 times in the cartoon so far.



    Another thing is that Cartoon Network is being cheap by not showing the end credit segments for any of the shows right after C.H. Greenblatt put the ones for this show back on. Honestly the network needs to give this show a little more respect. One last thing... I just don't like or understand Ms. Endive.



    Anyway I still have hopes for Chowder. I just think that it's running out of good ideas and isn't really filling the void of missing "Ed, Edd, n Eddy"moreless
  • A return for a review of Chowder.

    7.0
    I see that Season 2 has arrived.



    Chowder's Catering Company: Chowder makes his own dish, Mung tries it and convinces Chowder that no one would ever want to taste it. Chowder, sadly, let's it waste, until something munched on it, and Chowder noticed it liked his dish. It was funny when Mung was partially clueless about what Chowder was doing, even when Mung was still concentrated on making a dish, even though Chowder took it, and the stirrer. Schnitzel noticed Chowder set up a catering company, and Chowder gets Schnitzel, Mung, and Truffles uncautious, later, Chowder is forced to throw away his dish, at the end, Mung admits that he was proud for Chowder to start a catering company, although, I think that point to the episode should've been used before the series might end.(Chowder would last for a couple more years, which I meant to say)



    Episode Grade: C+



    The Catch Phrase: This one bothered me a little bit. Chowder, again, gets idolized by a catch phrase. Okay, there are two plots of this episode that already happened. The catch phrase part(Used in Flying Finger Lingon). Mostly the part of making Chowder cry(used in Fire Breather, Flying Finger Lingon, and the episode I previously talked about). I think the writers should stick with a different plot for 2009. The episode was overall good, but what I've explained affected it.

      (lower case "h"s follow the capital H)

    • Chowder: Please try it.
      Mung: No, Chowder!
      Chowder: Please.
      Mung: No, Chowder!
      (Chowder's face looks like a lady and in a lady voice)
      Chowder: Pretty please
      Mung: What the...

    • Chowder: All the best chefs have a catch phrase.
      Mung: I don't have a catch phrase.
      Chowder: (pause) All the best chefs have a catch phrase.

    • Chowder: Without a catchphrase, your cooking is...
      Man #1: Kaput?
      Man #2: Kaflorp?
      Man #3: Bland?
      Chowder: What he said. (points to Man #2 and then shuts door)
      Mung: My cooking is kaput?
      Chowder: (opens door) No, kaflorp. (shuts door)

    • Mung: What are you doing with that pickle barrel?
      Chowder: N-n-nothing?
      Mung: (suspiciously) You were gonna hide that barrel, weren't you?... (happily) And not share a single pickle with me! Oh, Chowder, you irrepressible little scamp.
      Chowder: YOU WON'T SHUT DOWN MY BUSINESS!!! (Hits Mung with a frying pan) (creatures talk to him) You're right, I have to dispose of this body, too. It's the only way. (stuffs Mung in the pickle barrel)
      Truffles: Hey, what's going on in here?

      Mung: (deadpan) Where did we go wrong?

    • Chowder: But, Mung, I know customers will wanna eat my Foof n' Scoops. They're magically fooflicious!

    • Chowder: Everyone has a catchphrase! Shnitzel...
      Shnitzel: Radda radda radda.
      Chowder: Truffles...
      (puts on ear plugs with Shnitzel)

      Truffles: What is all that yelling in there?!
      Chowder: Even Gazpacho!
      Gazpacho: Sit down, talk, and BUY MY BEANS!

  • NOTES (4)

  • ALLUSIONS (7)

    • Gazpacho: But first, where's the money? Show me the money!
      Mung: Haven't I heard that somewhere before?

      The quote was from the 1996 movie Jerry Macguire starring Tom Cruise.

    • Gazpacho: You need to ask yourself: Do I feel lucky? Well, do you punk?!

      This is the catch phrase that the main character in the 1971 movie Dirty Harry would say.

    • Lucky Charms

      When Chowder says his Foof N' Scoops is "magically fooflicious", it is a parody of the catchphrase ("magically delicious") of Lucky, the Lucky Charms mascot.

    • Looney Tunes: When Mung Dall starts shouting nonsensical curse words, the curse words he utters is the trademark rant of the Warner Bros. main cowboy/pirate villain, Yosemite Sam. The outlaw is known for cursing indistinctly when things don't go his way, which was quite often in the theatrical shorts.

    • Name: The Aluminum Chef

      It is a parody of The Iron Chef.

    • Chef Holland Daze saying "Wazzam!" when adding ingredients is an allusion to Emeril Lagasse, who, on his television show, shouts "Bam!" when adding ingredients.

    • Seinfeld

      When Chowder says, "No food for you!" this is a parody of Soup Nazi, a character on Seinfeld who's catch phrase is, "No soup for you!"
