  • Charlotte multiplies herself, Charlotte and Vendetta write about their day, and Marvin is in charge of Vendetta's fiends.

    Okay, out of the 30 minute episodes (even though there are only six), this one is my absolute favorite. Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! is my favorite. Everything about that episode makes me laugh. Grudge getting attacked by the guard dog fiends, the Charlotte's wanting to shoot Vendetta out of a circus cannon, the Free Gumdrops for Stupid Girls. All hilarious!!! You gotta feel sorry for Vendetta though. I definitely couldn't deal with all those Charlottes. I really don't have too much to say about Shorts Set 1. I liked the tourist commercial, and Dear Pretty Diary/Dear Stupid Journal was pretty funny. (She drowned my fiends!) Marvin the Middle Manager is great too. We get to see some more of Marvin, and he even gets a song with Charlotte. It's so cute! It's also got some funny parts too, like when Vendetta threatens to send a fiend to "help" Marvin, or when Charlotte got a boot to the face. These three episodes are all great and all deserve an A+, which is what they get.moreless

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Charlotte: (singing) I am like a butterfly,

      I am like a butterfly,
      Except I can't lay eggs.
      Charlotte: (talking) Come on, Marvin, sing a long!
      Charlotte and Marvin: (singing) Butter, butter, butterfly switching flower to flower
      Butter, butter, butterfly, living hour by hour.

      I am like a butterfly,
      At least we both can-
      (Vendetta enters the room)

    • Vendetta: Television is stupid.

    • Charlotte: (singing) Middle managing, middle managing is quite fun,
      It takes lots of different people to get things done.
      If you middle manage you will never be alone,
      'Cause middle managers can't manage alone.

    • Charlotte: (singing) My school is such a nice place,
      A place where I can play.
      Every time the bell rings,
      I just want to stay.
      My school is full of wonders,
      My school is full of glee.
      If I could come on weekends,
      What's where I would be!

    • Charlotte: (singing) What a pretty, pretty, pretty town,
      Full of pretty things.
      A pretty, pretty, pretty town,
      Full of birds that sing, oh.
      And super cute puppies that travel in packs,
      Multiple places where I can buy snacks.
      Fun things to play and fun people to meet,
      There's not a place there I'd rather be.
      And I've made a friend that's the best thing of all!
      What a pretty, pretty, pretty town,
      Full of birds that sing,
      A pretty, pretty, pretty world with pretty, pretty, pretty things.

    • Woman in onion commercial: (singing) Onions,
      Oh, oh, onions, so good, so good to eat,
      Oh, oh, onions, what round and punchy threat,
      Oh, oh, onions, what a special, special threat,
      Oh, oh, onions, how many can you eat?

    • Charlotte clones: Ooh! Free gumdrops for stupid girls?! That's us!

    • Marvin: My cocoa! Thanks, Rick. (turns attention to Charlotte) What's next? (starts sipping cocoa)
      Charlotte: Ooh! It's the last thing on the list. Number 27: Destroy Charlotte.
      Marvin spits out his cocoa
      Charlotte: That sounds easy enough. Maybe I could be attacked by wolverines!
      Marvin: Uh...
      Charlotte: Or how about if I was catupulted to the moon
      Marvin: My budget won't-
      Charlotte: I know! I can dress up like a fly. No! Wait! Wait! Butterflies are prettier. I'll be a butterfly that gets hit by a piano!
      Marvin: Um... Okay.
      Charlotte: This is going to be fun! If it works, Vendetta will be so happy. I think she'll promote us both. Yipee!

    • Charlotte: Vendetta has so many great pets! I taught some of them to swim. They are so good at holding their breath!
      Vendetta: She drowned my fiends!
