  • ugghhh... my least favorite pair. well, here i go on my rant...

    awful. just awful. lets start with the thousand pound cake. No. No. No. No. No no no no! did not care for it at all. bland dialogue. dumb plot. why didnt the dang giant just ever take the dang house off his frikin dang head?! it would have saved us 11 awful minutes. Gosh. Okay, now rat sandwich. NONONONONONONONONONONONONO! I will NOT believe that this is anywhere above a 3 on a scale of 50. i absolutely hate it! the mr. tummy was funny the first time, but it just got old. come on is that the best you can do? i know it isnt!moreless
  • Why do people say this is a bad episode?

    In my opinion, this is one of my favorite episodes. Both the Thousand Pound Cake and the Rat Sandwich have some hilarious moments. Yes, tTPC may have some grossness, but it's still funny. Neither of these episodes are boring. Also, I think tTPC is good just because of the ending. We have a sweet brotherly love moment between Chowder and Shnitzel... and then Shnitzel falls off a cliff. But the ending is still hilarious. This whole episode makes me laugh/smile. As for the Rat Sandwich, it had some funny moments too. The fight between Mung and Truffles (And Mung getting pwnd) is hilarious. And of course, Mr. Tummy. So again I ask, why do people hate this episode?moreless
  • Not my absolute least favorites, but nowhere near my favorite episodes.

    "The Thousand Pound Cake" - I liked the very beginning and the very end, but I did not much care for anything in between. Basically, Chowder and Shnitzel have to deliver a Thousand Pound Cake to a customer before sundown or the customer gets it free! With a plot like this one, I thought the episode could have been a lot more adventurous than it was. "The Rat Sandwich" - They brought a character that I really don't like, Reuben (from "Certifrycation Class"), back. He, wanting free food, goes to Mung Daal's catering company, orders a sandwich and sneaks his pet rat in it. Reuben says that he will expose the restaurant for "the rat-infested place it is", if they don't cater to his every whim. There is hardly anything funny in this episode. However, I like how Reuben gets what he deserves in the end.

    I'd only recommend these episodes to huge fans of Chowder.moreless
  • Boring. Worst Chowder episodes.

    This was obvously the worst episode in Chowder, specially "The Rat Sandwich". Here I have my comlainings:

    The Thousand Pound Cake: Too silly. It's good seeing Chowder and Shnitzel together, but I would like it more in a GOOD episode, and not in this one.

    The Rat Sandwich: Why in the world does Mung "hail" Rouben? He could just take him out and not be demanded since everybody in Marzipan City knows he is a criminal! I would change the channel if it is on. I expected more of this episode. I watched these episodes this morning and they ruined it.moreless
