  • First ever Chowder 30-minute special and it was amazing!!! I loved it :)

    When Shnitzel feels that he is not getting enough of what he deserves he quites and leaves all of them. Later Shnitzel finds an job at Endive's. But Mung tries to get Shnitzel back. I thought that this was a perfect special of "Chowder". The idea to this special was very original and creative. Snitzel quitting his job was a brilliant idea for the writers to do and every moment of this special was nothing but hilarious and genius. Snitzel deciding to work for Endive was very funny and I also thought the running gag with Panini asking Snitzel questions about Chowder was just pure hilarious. I also had to crack up when Panini said "What's Chowder's favorite cartoon? Oh I bet it's Chowder". Mung Daal, Chowder, and Truffles trying to get Snitzel back from Endive was also hilarious as well. It was also very funny when Snitzel was inside a bag and Mung Daal (or Chowder) used it to have a fight with Endive. Endive flirting with Snitzel and going psycho was hilarious as well and it was also even funnier when Snitzel has a pink rock as his girlfriend. Heck, everything about this special was just hilarious and fantastic. I also loved the creator talking to Snitzel about going back to Mung Daal and Chowder. The ending with Snitzel going back to work at Mung Daal's was very nice as well. Overall, a fantastic and hilarious first ever Chowder 30-minute special. 10/10moreless
  • Another Chowder Home-Run

    In this episode, Shnitzel is finally tired of being beaten, abused, and underpayed and finally quits working for Mung's catering company, and leaves to find another job. He soon finds a job with Endive and her catering company. At first, he's enjoying it, he's being properly treated/payed. However, he soon learns that Endive is interested in a relationship with him, and he's prepared to flee. Meanwhile, Mung and Chowder have grown sad without him and plan to take him back. For the most part, this was a very clever and funny episode, I would definitly put this in my top 10. 10/10 A+moreless
  • First 30-minute episode...Awesome!

    "Shnitzel Quits" - What a great episode idea: Shnitzel has been mistreated and overworked lately. He thinks he deserves a raise, but ufortunately, Mung can't give him one. So, he quits working at Mung Daal's Catering Company and starts working for Endive, where he feels more appreciated. At first everything is great, but with Endive falling in love with him and Panini asking questions about Chowder every two seconds, he begins to question whether quitting was the best idea. Meanwhile, Mung and Chowder begin to miss Shnitzel and decided to try to get him back. How will this one end? Watch and find out!

    I recommend this episode, but I suggest you see an episode like "The Wrong Customer" or "Shnitzel Makes a Deposit" first to understand what Shnitzel is going through.moreless

  • Schnitzel quits!! A great episode idea!!

    This was a great idea. It really shows that mung and chowder really care about Schnitzel. This one is about Schnitzel quitting...of course. Chowder seems like the only one concerned that Schnitzel is gone but over time Mung Daal is also concerned. Schnitzel in the meanwhile goes to endive's place and is going to ask for a job there. endive starts to like schnitzel which scares him and Panini starts to annoy him by asking things about Chowder. then Mung, chowder, and truffles try to get schnitzel back. That's basically the plot. This was definently a very special episode, it had great jokes and humor, and the characters were great especially schnitzel. It was great because it was all about schnitzel and it showed that everybody actually cared about him.moreless

  • NOTES (6)


    • Song: Shnitzel Fella

      The song the rats sing about Shnitzel is a reference to the Disney verson of Cinderella's song, Cinderelly.

    • Panini: (about Chowder) What's his favorite color? What's his favorite food? What's his favorite cartoon? I bet it's Chowder!

      Panini refers to the actual show, Chowder.
