  • Decent Start

    7.0
    A decent start to this show. It was pretty funny and interesting. Most of the characters in this episode were pretty likable, except Toot, Clara, Spanky Ham & maybe Xandir, but it's only the first episode. Some of the scenes were pretty disgusting, but hilarious as well, like the scene with Clara & Foxxy kissing. Another funny part was when Ling-Ling tried to battle Clara, but failed. However it was funny how he killed Toot instead when she came in the room. Some parts were pretty boring, but hopefully that'll change. Overall it was a decent episode. There are things to work on but maybe it'll get better. I give it a 7.0.moreless
  • The 8 animated housemtes meet for the very first time on Drawn Together.

    The episode that started it all!



    For the first episode, it was all right. The Foxxy/Clara storyline was pretty "meh" for me, but the story about Toot trying to win Xandir over with her outdated charm was pretty funny.



    I could identify the characters I knew I was going to like immediatly!



    Spanky won me over when he called "Dibs on the chair" and then started peeing on the chair in front of everybody.



    Captain Hero won me over when he yelled "SAVE YOURSELVES!" during Toot's earthquake Charlston.



    Wooldoor won me over with his little "Boy in the bubble" bit.



    Toot won me over with the line "Would you just put it in me already! Even if you just need a place to pee!"



    The rest of the cast (Foxxy, Clara, Ling-Ling and Xandir) don't really appeal to me (Although Ling-Ling has his moments).moreless
  • I wish there was a word that meant "Funny perfection." Because thats what this is.

    9.1
    Keep up the good work artist but I do have some critical things to say; I personally think having no storyline makes a show funny but im one of the few, how about having a fake storyline like having an episode complete derived from one of the characters imagination. I'm not here to give you guys ideas but I do want to help yourselves give each other ideas. Also . . . more killings would be nice, comical killings of course. I would love to see you guys make the Pig get in a fight with a strip of Bacon that would be so funny. Roflmfao.moreless
  • Awesome! This episode has me completely hooked. Shocking. Really!

    When I watched this episode I had NEVER seen anything quite like Drawn Together. This is the first reality TV cartoon. Kinda like big brother.



    I've never seen South Park, I dont like the simpsons, and I have never really watched cartoons directed at adults.



    This epsiode has it all. Its shocking, racist, biggoted, filthy, homophobic, nasty.... I think that covers the basics. I think this episode took a stab at nearly every demographic so if you are even slightly sensitive don't watch it.



    There is a fabulous musical scene with Foxy and Clara that is not to be missed. I nearly fell off my chair, not like anything I'd seen on TV before.moreless
  • The Simpsons is still #1 in my heart, but this show gives me the few things that were (somewhat) missing from The Simpsons: blatant drug use, gratuitious sex and liberal profanity.moreless

    9.4
    As if you couldn\'t tell from the other reviews, this is NOT a kids cartoon. If you have ever seen \"Adult Swim\" on Cartoon Network, this is a million times worse...err...better. Anyway, My second favorite show used to be MXC, but that got bumped to third as soon as I watched this episode. Clara thinking Foxy was the help was a riot. So much for political correctness. Also, when Toot Braunstein (a totally undisguised rip-off of Betty Boop) tries to impress Xander causing the house to all but collapse, I about lost it. This is raunchy comedy writ large. Be prepared to be offended.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • The characters's ages:
      -Clara is 20.
      -Spanky is 31.
      -Toot is 22.
      -Captain Hero is 28.
      -Xandir is 19.
      -Foxxy is 23.

      Ling-Ling and Wooldoor's ages are yet to be revealed.

    • Princess Clara was the first housemate ever to occupy the confessional chair, and she was also the first character to talk in the show.

    • When she is in the confessional discussing Clara's apology, Foxxy is missing her wristbands in the first couple of shots, but has them again at the end.

    • Just before Toot starts her earthquaking Charleston, look at Spanky Ham in the background; for a few seconds, his eyebrows are missing.

    • When Wooldoor is trapped in Spanky's bubble, he wears a blue-and-white striped bathing suit. But when the bubble bursts next morning, Wooldoor wears his usual attire.

    • During the booze party, Toots sucks up alcohol from a tube while the others chant "Suck". But when this word is chanted for the last time, the characters neither open their mouth nor do they move in rhythm to the chant, as they did before.

    • The show made its debut on the same night as Game 4 of the 2004 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals. In fact, the episode aired more than an hour before the last out was made.

    • Whenever someone's in the confession room, the show their name, age and previous occupation before the show at the bottom of the screen. However, Toot's occupation changes sometimes from "Overweight 20's sex icon" to just "20's sex icon"

    • When Foxxy is first shown standing in front of all the alcohol, she has her boots on. A few seconds later, they show her standing there barefooted.

    • If you look closely when Foxxy is saying how messed up Clara's apology is, she doesn't have her wristbands on. But after Clara says the part which explains to Foxxy why she is so bigoted, you can see the wristbands back on Foxxy.

    • When Foxxy is stuck in "Oh, no, you didn't!" mode, her arm moves side to side and her head moves forward and back. At first, it may look like her head is also moving side to side, but look closer at the neck. For a more complete view, observe the scene with Foxxy and Captain Hero, and watch Foxxy and her reflection in the mirror.

  • QUOTES (30)

    • Princess Clara: The minute I met my new housemates, I felt like they were members of my family, only much, much poorer!

    • Toot: So, how was your night princess?
      Clara: Oh, it was magical.
      Toot: You think what happened last night was magical? I mean, maybe it would be magical if you were violated by a magician...

    • Foxxy: It's like this, right. Because of that dumb princess bitch, everybody thought Foxxy was a loose cannon. Now Foxxy may be loose, but she ain't no cannon.

    • Clara: The minute I met my new housemates, I felt like they were members of my family. Only much much poorer.

    • Toot: Won't you just stick it in me, even if you just need a place to pee?

    • Foxxy: (in the "oh no you didn't" motion) This is some f'd up s. I am so mad. I've been stuck like this for three hours. (still in the "oh no you didn't" motion)

    • Clara: (in confession room) I was so upset about what Foxxy did! I thought those people picked banjos, not fights!

    • Toot: (kneeling in front of the TV Xandir's watching with her head in a gilloutine) I swear to God I'll cut my fucking head off! (Xandir ignores her, she drops the blade and her head rolls away while the rest of her body flashes him; Spanky then takes a dump into her skull)

    • Foxxy: You best stay outta my way, bitch, or you gon' be dead.
      (Clara crashes into wall)

    • Some Black Chick's Tongue Lyrics:

      Clara: What is this thing in my mouth?
      It's slippery and it's slimy,
      Tavelling down my slender virgin pink esophagus,
      Some black chick's tongue,
      It's such a new sensation.
      Foxxy: I got a mayonnaise mamma on my licking hole and we've only just begun.
      Clara: It's really quite thrilling.
      Foxxy: That's right now, you know.
      Clara: I think I taste a filling.
      Foxxy: And it's solid gold.
      Clara: I never dreamed I'd be so willing to let myself go.
      Foxxy: Tell me about it, I'm totally frenchin' a racist ho!
      This black chick's tongue.
      Clara: What a wonderful feeling.
      Foxxy: Damn, where'd dis bitch get her earrings?
      Clara: I've never had so much fun.
      Clara & Foxxy: As with this black chick's tongue.
      Captain Hero: How cool is this? We've only been here a day and I already find myself in a three way... This IS NICE!

    • Ling-Ling's Theme Song:

      Ling-Ling into battle go
      Fulfill destiny of the soul
      Sever skull of adversary
      Shove it in the poo-poo hole

      All the children sing:
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,

      Ling-Ling master all technique
      Obtain hundred-fifty level
      Strive to greatest destiny
      Through unparalleled bloodshed.

      All the children sing:
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,

      Ling-Ling to the challenge dare
      Where ever the cards may fall
      Children of the world unite
      To collect them all

      Sing you slaves!
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,

      Louder, damn it!
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,

      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die,

      Ling-Ling you and me!
      Kill, kill, kill, kill, die, die, die!

    • Xandir: (repeated throughout the episode) I'm on a never-ending quest to save my girlfriend!

    • Ling-Ling: That'll do pig. That'll do.

    • Clara (to Foxxy): I'm glad you're finally here. Would you be a dear and fetch my bags, servant girl?
      Foxxy: Excuse me? What did you just call me? "Servant girl?"
      Clara: Oh, many pardons, or "my bad"... what do you people call yourselves these days? Mammy? Moolie? Topsie? Shwoogie?
      Spanky: (laughing) Oh my God! She thinks you're our servant, 'cause your black! Ha ha, this is the best day of my miserable life, Sweet! I love racism!

    • Clara: Help! She's attacking me like I'm the English language.
      Foxxy: (in an English accent) Oh, it is on!

    • Captain Hero: I could stick and stir anyone of these broads, but I really wish we had one of those sexy black chicks.
      Foxxy: Bling bling! Foxxy Love is in the house!
      Captain Hero: Damn, I am good! I wish we had a twelve-year-old girl and a donkey!
      (camera shifts from the door to Captain Hero several times; nothing happens)
      Captain Hero: Damn.

    • Toot: Sometimes I cut myself to relieve the pain.

    • Spanky: I call dibs on the cat-fight.
      (Spanky starts urinating on Foxxy and Clara)
      Spanky: Why must I ruin everything beautiful?

    • Wooldoor: (sniffs a bottle of booze) Smells like Mommy's kisses!

    • Captain Hero: Hey, pig. Great news. Foxxy just bought us an insane amount of alcohol. Are you defecating into a cantaloupe?
      Spanky: (farts and craps) This is awkward. Uh, I guess if I waited an hour, I could've chalked this one up to the booze, huh?

    • Captain Hero: Dude, you are so whipped. How many lives have you spent on this "girlfriend," anyway?
      Xandir: 8,293,506 - not counting Quadforces and power-ups.

    • Clara: (on phone with the producers) I was totally violated! I want Foxxy Love gone!
      (Garbled phone speech)
      Clara: I don't know how a tequila brunch would help, but it couldn't hurt.
      (Last night's events are sped up with everybody wearing sombreros)
      Clara: That was horrible idea! I was totally violated... again! I want Foxxy Love gone!

    • Spanky: Nothin' reminds me of my first time like a chick cryin'!

    • Captain Hero: I tell ya, ever since that kid set foot in the house, all he's said is, (mockingly) "I'm on a never-ending quest to save my girlfriend!"
      (Various clips of Xandir)
      Xandir: Where are the paper towels? Oh, no! I think my watch is broken. Ha ha! Grapes are fun!

    • Clara: Why should I apologize? It's not like I made her black.

    • Toot: If I can't be the sex symbol, then I'll just be THE BITCH!

    • Ling-Ling: I use your skull for sex, and a decorative bird house.

    • Ling-Ling: Ling-Ling is no pet! Ling-Ling here to kill, and to give children seizures!

    • Ling-Ling: Say my name, bitch!

    • Xandir: Could the studly hero be right? Was she only just controlling me?

  • NOTES (6)

    • According to the episode commentary,the network thought the show would be like a normal reality show except with cartoon characters, until they saw the scene with the blowhole on Foxxy.

    • Ling-Ling's animation appears to be 'stylized', in that his animations will often drop heavilly in framerate, much like certain badly animated Japanese cartoon shows. This is most obvious during moments where Ling-Ling is the only one on camera.

    • The premiere grabbed an audience of 2.2 million viewers, a good chunk of the 2.9 million that watched its South Park lead-in.

    • Parts of episodes shown in 1:85:1 widescreen (16X9).

    • Tara Strong seemed to have a little bit of a problem deciding on a voice for Toot. If you watch closely, her voice re-adjusts over and over until near the end, and at one point she even sounds exactly like her Powerpuff Girls character, Bubbles. (When she says "Sometimes I cut myself to relieve the pain.")

    • Spanky's animation is stylized to look as in if done in Macromedia Flash. He is basically formed of simple shapes and is always in straight on, 3/4, profile, or back view.

  • ALLUSIONS (12)

    • Futurama
      Foxxy says she isn't a slave to nobody, "except the rhythm," which is exactly what a slave says in the episode of Futurama, "A Pharaoh to Remember."

    • The Legend Of Zelda:
      (on how many lives Xandir has used on his girlfriend) "8,293,506 - not counting Quadforces and power-ups."
      This is most likely a nod to the Triforce from The Legend of Zelda.

    • The Surreal Life
      Xandir spending all his time on the telephone talking with his girlfriend is a reference to The Surreal Life. Corey Feldman set up camp in the phone booth and was always talking to his girlfriend. Corey and Xandir also have similiar personalities.

    • Smurfs
      The two creatures that are tied together and fighting with knives look like Smurfs, only purple.

    • A Black Chick's Tongue: Tune
      The tune to "A Black Chick's Tongue" is very similar to "A Whole New World" from Aladdin.

    • Producers
      When Clara speaks to the producers on the phone, they sound like the adults from the Peanuts cartoons.

    • Visual: Car/UFO
      In the beginning of the second act, a Flintstones-like car drives by the house while a Jetsons-ish UFO flies overhead.

    • Xandir: (plays flute and is transported in a tornado)
      In The Legend of Zelda:, Link (the character upon which Xandir is based) would play a flute and then be transported by a cyclone.

    • Beetlejuice
      Ling-Ling says, "Say "Ling-Ling" three times to accept challenge! The rule about saying his name three times over a short period of time to summon his ballistic behavior might be a reference to Beetlejuice, who ran under a similar rule.

    • Pokemon
      Ling-Ling says, "I come here to destroy all! And give children seizure! This is a reference to the infamous Pokémon episode "Electric Hero Porygon" (that has been banned in all countries) which popular urban legend says gave hundreds of children seizures when it aired in Japan (the children actually only showed symptoms of mass hysteria, several days after the fact). The show then spoofs the scene by showing Ling-Ling's picture with rapid flashing lights for a couple of seconds.

    • Babe
      Ling-Ling says, "that'll do pig, that'll do." It is an obvious reference to Farmer Hogget's closing line from the talking-animal movie Babe.

    • Survivor
      Hero says, "Once I vote you out, I'll be closer to that million dollars. Captain Hero is referencing the CBS reality show, Survivor, with its premise of a single survivor winning a grand cash prize. But Foxxy tries in vain to remind him that there is no prize at the end.
