Giant / King of the Sky / Big Boy Kid
Cricket / Cake / Pitcher / Hamhock
Cindy Morrow posted the original story outline for this episode on her website. The original version was vastly different compared to the version that aired. The differences are:
1. It was originally titled "A Golden Anniversary"
2. Mung and Truffles were married for only 50 years instead of 450.
3. Chowder had an actual motivation of bringing Mung and Truffles back together: he wanted Mung out of his room and was also starving due to the lack of meals.
4. Shnitzel, meanwhile, was afraid of losing his job due to the business at the catering company dwindling.
The last few lines of Mung on the Rocks suggest that Chowder doesn't know about sex.
1) Every time Chowder runs a base, Gorgonzola fails to catch him, except for home base. (Sniffleball)
2) Truffles ignores Mung when he tries to talk to her. (Mung on the Rocks)
In Sniffleball, Chowder didn't want to go outside at all, but in Mung on the Rocks, Chowder seemed fine with going outside.
Since when can Gazpacho fly?
Apparently, Mung "deteriorates" when Truffles is really mad at him.
This episode contained a brief scene which showed Mung Daal and Truffles as they were when they were younger, presumably when they were in the process of courting one another. Truffles was somewhat taller and slimmer in her youth, while Mung Daal had black hair and was sporting a more causal garb.
Look right before Chowder pulls off the man's clothes off. When Chowder runs and puts it back on, it looks different.
Chowder says to Gazpacho that Panini keeps kissing him, but she only kissed him once.
Gorgonzola: Don't get excited, big boy. There's still twelve more bases to go.
Chowder: What did Gazpacho say mabout shaking it up? (thought bubble appears)
Gazpacho: Be sure to shake it up, Chowder. Shake it up good. A-and when you're done shakin' it...SHAKE IT SOME MORE!
Chowder: No. I'm going home now.
Gazpacho: Or going home now is good, too.
Dog Kid: But it's my turn.
Mung: Chowder,when was the last time you went outside?
(Mung opens the window and Chowder hisses while scary pipe organ music plays in the background)
Chowder: Hey, you guys are back!
Mung Daal: Back and badder than ever!
Truffles: I think it's time to get cooking!
(Truffles kisses Mung Daal on the cheek)
Mung Daal: Oh, boy!
Chowder: Yay! The juice worked!
(Mung Daal and Truffles walk out of the kitchen and walk towards their room)
Chowder: Hey! Where you going?! The kitchen's back here!
Mung Daal: Why is this pillow so lumpy?!
(Mung Daal lifts up the pillow, revealing ham to be underneath it)
Mung Daal: Ham?! Chowder, why is there ham under the pillow?!
Chowder: Because mine already has cake.
(The scene changes to show Chowder and Mung Daal eating the cake)
Chowder: Mung, are you gonna be living up here now? 'Cause if you are, we need to talk about bathroom rules.
Mung Daal: No! No! Truffles will calm down by morning.
Chowder: Why's she so mad at you?
Mung Daal: Well, women have these things in their bodies called expectations.
Chowder: Are expectations bad?
Mung Daal: Well, they're bad for us. But we can never live up to them. Once she learns to lower her expectations, everyone will be happy.
Chowder: You'd think after four hundred fifty years her expectations would be really low. I mean, really, really, really, really, really, really…
Mung Daal: (interrupting) I get it, Chowder! Just go to sleep. I guarantee, she'll be a lot happier tomorrow.
Gorgonzola: You shouldn't have come here, Chowder.
Chowder: Oh, hi, Gorgonzola.
Gorgonzola: You should've stayed in the kitchen where you belong.
Chowder: That's what I told Mung.
Gorgonzola: (to Chowder) Hey, Chowder, are you ready to find out why they call me "The Zinger?!"
Kid: (offscreen) Just throw the ball already!
Chowder: There it is! Home! But I'm all out of kitchen utensils to help me.
Gorgonzola: Then I guess you won't make it.
Chowder: Yes, I will! I will become "the utensil!"
Gorgonzola: You're becoming stupider.
Gazpacho: The joyous sound of mother burping lets me know that all is right with the world. I just wish she wouldn't... (Gazpacho burps) ...blow 'em at me.
Chowder: Fizzy River Juice Fruit! Thanks, Gazpacho!
Gazpacho: Just don't shake it up! It gets too fizzy! (Gazpacho takes another sip of Fizzy River Juice Fruit and burps loudly).
Chowder: I may not understand why Mung needs Truffles, but I know he needs her. And I may not know how to fix them, but I know someone who does! And I may not know what's in this cookie... (lifts cookie) ...'cause I found it on the floor, but I'm gonna eat it anyways! (Chowder eats the cookie)
(The kid who picks up the sniffleball in front of Panini being near Chowder)
Kid: Get a room!
Mung: It's the zinger!
Gorgonzola: (to Chowder) You think you can walk in here, and show me up? Well, do you? Huh? Huh, do you? Do you? Huh? Huh? Well, sniffleball is my thing and, I worked very hard to get where I am.
Kid: (walks in) Hey, bat boy, where's my bat? (Gorgonzola hands the kid a bat)
Chowder: Mr. Spoon, run interference for me! (Chowder throws the spoon).
Gorgonzola: (screaming) My eye! My eye! My eye!
Gazpacho: Don't sweat it, Chowder. Being out isn't so bad. Mother calls me out all the time.
Chowder: (crying) I... don't... want... to play anymore! Gorgonzola's mean to me, Panini keeps kissing me, there's nothing to eat. I just wanna go home!
(Chowder puts his hand on a sniffleball to pick it up, and Panini puts her hand on his)
Panini: (slowly) Hi, Chowder.
Chowder: (quietly) I'm not your--
Panini: Shhhh. Don't say another word. (A small cloud appears by Panini's head, and a rainbow arches over to Chowder. A small blue creature with pink glasses, pink underwear, and pink wristbands appears and laughs. It then slaps Chowder and hearts appear around its hand. The creature, clouds, and rainbow disappear)
Panini: (very quickly) I didn't know you like to play sniffleball. I like to play sniffleball too. I guess we have a lot in common, which is important if we're going to spend the rest of our life which each other, right? Boy, you sure look yummy in that hat.
Chowder: Look, a monster! AAAAH! (Chowder runs away)
Monster: Hi, Panini.
Panini: Oh, hi, Hamhock.
(Mung and Truffles walk in)
Chowder: Hey, where are you going? The kitchen's back here!
Gazpacho: Then the angry lady would look in the fridge and say, "did you eat the last pizza pocket?" Then I'll say, "No, I had the last four pizza pockets."
Chowder: I think something's wrong with Mung.
Shnitzel: Radda radda radda r-radda.
Chowder: Why would he be upset about Truffles? She stopped yelling at us, and she never comes in here now. It's perfect!
Shnitzel: Oh, radda radda.
Chowder: What do you mean, I wouldn't understand?
Shnitzel: Radda radda ra-radda radda.
Chowder: What do you mean, stop repeating everything you say?
Mung: Chowder, why is there ham under this pillow?
Chowder: Because mine already has cake.
Mung: Chowder, quit kissing my kitchen!
Gorgonzola: Easy out.
Panini: (offended) What did you say?! (hits the ball so hard it knocks back Gorgonzola)
Panini: (to Chowder) Go, Num-nums!
Gorgonzola: I'm incredible!
Gazpacho: (blowing different variety of whistles) Huh? Huh?! Normally, I'm not allowed to blow whistles 'cause of mother. But I'd figured she can't hear me way out here. You don't think she can hear me, do ya? Maybe I better keep it down just in case. (blows the whistle and whispers) Play ball.
Mung: And look at all the kids playing sniffleball. Now, doesn't that look like fun?
Chowder: (yelling) NO! NO!! NO!!!
Mung: (slaps Chowder's mouth shut) Well, it is. In fact, this is the perfect place for you to make new, non-utensil friends.
Mung: (hears fart sound) Boy, Kimchi sure is noisy tonight.
Chowder: Umm... that wasn't Kimchi...
Gorgonzola: You're going down!
Credits: Mung Daal shows Chowder how to make art with the mustard marker. He draws a Wamburger and Chowder takes a bite out of it. Then Chowder draws a Frapple Turnover Cake. When Mung tastes it, he said it tastes terrible, and makes a joke to Chowder about how he has no taste.
Introduced Foods and/or Recipes:
Fish Sticks and Stones
Fizzy River Juice Fruit
Frapple Turnover Cake
Truffles doesn't appear to be in the episode, Sniffleball. Yet, she was in all episodes before this one, but she isn't in one of the episodes.
This marks the third appearance of Gorgonzola since Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin. Though it is his first speaking role since the very first episode, Burple Nurples.
Mung and Truffles have been married for 450 years.
Episode Title: Mung on the Rocks
The title of this episode is a parody of Neil Diamond's "Love on the Rocks".
Mung: We have fish sticks and fish stones. (to Shnitzel) Careful with those fish stones! They will break your bones!
This is a reference to the saying: "Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me."
When Gorgonzola took off his nose and inflate it to fly, it can be a reference to the episode of The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Wild Parts, where the Nasalmancer blows Billy's nose up like a balloon in order to escape.
Visual: 13 bases
This is a reference to the Calvin and Hobbes book series. Sometimes when they play baseball, they sometimes use more than 6 bases.
Visual: Super Mario Bros.
When Chowder was trying to get to 12th base there was reference to Super Mario Bros. Mario was trying to get pass A Bowser like Gorgonzola and when Chowder passed him, Gazpacho popped out of a tube. A way people in the game travels.
Panini is like Princess Peach being held by Bowser. She is being held by the Bowser-like Gorgonzola if you look closely.
Sniffleball seems to be a spoof of the popular sport, wiffleball.
