  • One of the best pairings yet

    Pannini for President- I usually don't care for political episodes (I feel they tend to put views over laughs) but this was a good political episode, where Chowder vs. Pannini for president of the apprentice society. 10/10 A+

    Chowder's Babysitter- When Truffles and Mung go out for a night of passion, they empoly Gazpacho to watch him. They soon have an exciting night of escape, thrills, and terror. A very funny episode, great Gazpacho episode, one of the best of him overall. 10/10 A+

    Overall, 2 perfect episodes, although I'd choose "Chowder's Babysitter" but still a great pairing overall. 10/10 A+moreless
  • Another one on my list of favorite episodes!

    "Panini For President" - The Apprentice Counsel needs a new president. Panini wants to run to make Chowder he husband and Chowder is running to stop that from happening. With Panini being assisted by Ceviche (from "Apprentice Games") and Chowder working with Gorgonzola, he might as well start on the wedding cake! Or maybe they can come up with something so great Panini could not top it? Who will win?

    An excellent episode with an O. Henry (surprise) ending!

    "Chowder's Babysitter" - Mung and Truffles are going to be out square dancing all night so they leave Chowder with a babysitter - Gazpacho! They have all sorts of fun, but the fun ends when Gazpacho mistakenly thinks he killed Chowder (of course he did not really!) Gazpacho tells "spirit" Chowder that he will have to cross over to the other side. Will they succeed? Great one. The ending is a little predictable but still good.

    Needless to say - I recommend these episodes.moreless

  • "Panini for President/Chowder's Babysitter" is one of my personal favorites, it was another excellent episode!

    "Panini for President/Chowder's Babysitter" is one of the best episodes ever! It was well written and entertaining the whole way through. In "Panini for President,"Panini ran for president of The Apprentice Council, and Gorgonzola wanted to run against her, but nobody liked him. Gorgonzola devised a plan to use Chowder as a puppet to obtain control of The Apprentice Council.

    In "Chowder's Babysitter," Mung and Truffles left Chowder with a babysitter. Scared at first, Chowder quickly changed to excited and happy when he discovered that his babysitter was none other than...Gazpacho! After getting through only half of Gazpacho's list, Chowder ran and hid so he wouldn't have to go to bed. While searching for Chowder, Gazpacho accidently turned on the meat grinder. After seeing meat come out of the machine and Chowder's hat land on the pile, he feared the worst. When Chowder came out from hiding Gazpacho was terrifyied and wanted to help Chowder's spirit cross over to the other side.

    Both episodes have very funny twists and gags. I can't wait for the dvds to come out! This is one of my personal favorites, though I like all of the episodes.

  • this episode had to be one of the best ones yet

    this episode had everything: humor, politics, and even pie.

    panini for president-this episode was funny especially the part where all the babies are shown beating the snot out of each other. gorgonzola using food to control chowder. chowder obeyed all the masters: master lolipop, master cinimon swirl, master pizza, master willpower, and master umm. but in the end the kid w/ the fly swatter reclaimed his job as president and both chowder and panini lost.

    chowders babysitter-this episode was even funnier than the fist one. gazpacho, the obviously irresponsible baby sitter, thinks he killed chowder and tries to flush him down the toilet and after trying every toilet in town they attempt a flush down endives ENORMOUS toilet while endive is bathing. once she dicovers that they are there she chases them across town wearing nothing but the bubbles from her bath.

    overall this episode was awesome and is my new favoritemoreless

  • NOTES (9)


    • Cop: Darn you, meddling kids! I'll get you sometime!

      When the cop called Chowder and Gorganzola "meddling kids", it's a reference to what people call the gang in Scooby Doo.

    • When Gorganzola dumps mud on Panini, it alludes the pig blood scene from Carrie.

    • At the end of "Panini for President," she does the same pose Richard Nixon did when he said "I am not a crook!"

    • John F. Kennedy

      The apprentice of the fly swatter maker and president of the Apprentice Council is very similar to former President, John F. Kennedy.

    • The Phantom of the Opera:

      At the debate, the costume Gorgonzola changes into is similar to the Phantom of the Oprea, from the play/movie Phantom of the Oprea.
