    This was terrible! MGPAM needed to be canceled long before it did! Luchadors: this word still haunts a very smart person! This show isn't even worth my time to write a decent review on! the start ones couldn't stand this! The frog, I don't even care what her name was, more annoying then anything! Jake, he was decent, almost, he was kinda funny, like he was someone who would only spark a silent laugh in me though, And then the main character, what ever his name was, alway tring to do the right thing, how annoying. The voice acting wasn't anything to appreciate either.



    Its stupid, don't watch it. One of the characters is a stupid loud-mouth frog and sounds like Lucius Heinous VII if he was high on acid.

  • I like this episodes becouse its based on other Characters.

    9.4
    Now that is how you get people to notice your show is to make it based on other characters. In Gorilla my Dreams it was based on Windsor. Not jake and adam, in prince and the Pooper, it wasn't about Jake and Adam it was based on another character. That was hillarious how they made fun of Micheal jackson like that. Good idea on giving him a different name (that way he whon't sue) lol. That was hillarious at the end of Goorrilla my dream when Windsor's girlfriend said he wouldn't be able to hang out with his friends, it was the way he reacted to it.moreless
  • This is the review of The Prince and the Pooper. I have to say this is quite ok.

    6.0
    This is the review of The Prince and the Pooper. Now, I seem to like this episode because of how Doobie acts and treats and sort of reminds me of the "Berries & Cream" man that is seen in a Starburst commercal. spoilers

    I think how Jake and Saucy (a relitive of Jakes but with alittle darker hair and is wearing a hat) switched places seemed ok, its like Jake is descovoering that Doobie puts Saucy to work and Jake finds out that Saucy dosn't know what anything is like he would say "whats a locker/book/lunch bag/etc" and others like tickling Adams tummy which Adam tells Saucy that they don't do that in the real world. Then we all know that Doobie putted Saucy to work all the time (possibly when Saucy was young) which made Saucy unedgucated. Its sorta like a Forshadowing episode.

    Spoilers end here So I give this episode a 6 out of 10moreless
  • A crazy little thing called love, and Jake Spidermonkey finally reveals his soul! :)

    10
    Over the months, I've happily watched this show blossom into a great comedy with heart and soul! Windsor is worried a lady gorilla named Debbie will fall in love with him as adult gorillas mate/marry for life! There's nowhere Windsor wouldn't try hiding, even if it causes pain! Fortunatly, Debbie reminds Windsor they're not adult gorillas Yet, so they don't have to fall in love yet! And also, it seems whenever Jake tries to be laid back, Adam Lyon becomes the over-reacting one! In this case, Adam is excited as Jake's cousin Lord Saucypants is owned by famous celebrity Doobie Broadway Junior the one hit wonder! Doobie has it all: a limo, pool, amusement park, personal movie theater, & the fact he looks great in Peter Pan clothes! Lord Saucypants however, doesn't feel lucky. The rich monkey has never known a life outside his sheltered abode and wants to experience real life. Jake wants to know the perks of being a famous celebrity's monkey. Not wasting time, both Jake and his cousin get naked in order to trade places with each other. All that glitters is not gold as Doobie turns out to be very demanding of his monkey. Although Jake's cousin wants to please, he doesn't even know the simplest of real life things. This isn't Saucypants fault though as Doobie never let him have a life outside of being a celebrity's pet/servant, Doobie ended up becoming an unintentional imbecile. Jake soon gets sick doing everything for the celebrity, tearing his clothes off in a desperate attempt to escape! He does, thanks to Adam! Jake finally shows his moral compass for the first time in saying it was wrong for Doobie to use his monkey as a servant. Doobie never meant to cause his monkey grief but there was no other way Doobie could maintain the lavish lifestyle they were accustomed to. Fortunatly, Jake saves the day for the very first time by booking Doobie on a worldwide cruise so Doobie could get back on top where he belongs! This is one wonderful show! Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Windsor: To be frank, I'm just not sure if I'm ready for a lifetime commitment.
      Jake Spidermonkey: I don't blame you Frank, middle-school marriages are notoriously short-lived!

    • (Adam tells Principal Pixiefrog about Windsor and Debbie) P.F. : Mr. Lyon, I want to say how happy I am that you brought this to my attention. I want to say it, but I can't. What I mean to say is, WOMEN! You can't live with them... Adam: Yes, Principal Pixiefrog? P.F.: That's it, you can't live with them. For me, it all started out when I met this woman Lenore. (Adam leaves) LENORE!!!! (Crow hits the window) What was that?! Well, I better get back to work!

    • (Phone calls, Jake answers it) Jake: Hello, who is it? You're calling because you want to find out if Dobie Broadway Jr. is available for a six month cruise ship? How am I supposed to know if he's available? I'm just his monkey! Look, you'll have to talk to his agent! Dobie, who's your agent? (Dobie points to Jake) Yes, this is his agent speaking.

    • (Jake is dressed in a maid's outfit) Jake: I thought that my cousin Lord Saucypants had it made! Turns out, he is the maid! (Dobie Broadway Jr. drinks milk and spits it out) Dobie Broadway Jr.: Say! This isn't llama milk! Jake: The Sherpa said your bill was past due. Dobie: Than what will we use to wash my hair?! (Throws his hair on Jake, starts to cry)

    • Dobie Broadway Jr.: Hey diddle diddle! What do I see? Two monkeys and a boy are here to see me. Who wants to see me fly out of this tree? (Jake, Adam, and Lord Saucypants raise their hands) All right then! (Jumps, crashes to the ground, speaks in a strained voice) That was fun, I love fun! Eee-hee!

    • (Adam hears rustling in the bushes) Adam: Jake, did you hear that? Jake: Of course I heard that! I'm surprised that you did! Adam: What do you mean? Jake: You humans get startled by everything! Adam: I do not! Prove it! Jake: Adam, I don't have to prove anything to you--BOO!!!! (Adam jumps out of his clothes and into the bushes) Adam: Jake would you hand me my clothes? Jake : Sure thing Adam. Adam: I'm beginning to wonder why I even bother wearing clothes to this school at all!

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Dobie's hit single begins with the same music played at The Extreme Cheerleading State Finals when the Preppy Prep Girls (and boy) came out.

    • Jake: It's a madhouse! A madhouse!!!

      Charles Heston said the same words in the movie Planet of The Apes. The words were also said in the episode "Amazon Kevin."

    • While talking with Adam during "Gorilla of My Dreams", Principal Pixiefrog mentions being in love with someone named Lenore, and a raven hits his window. This is an allusion to Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The Raven".

    • The episode segment title Gorilla My Dreams is also the name of an old, short theatrical Looney Tunes cartoon short starring Bugs Bunny.

    • The celebrity that Jake's cousin Lord Saucypants lives with, Doobie Broadway Junior, shares many similarities with real life rock star Michael Jackson. Both own an amusement park ranch, both own a monkey for a friend, both of them have an affinity with Peter Pan, both of them have a personal movie theater in their home, and both of them haven't had a real hit song in years.

    • The Prince and the Pooper is a take on "The Prince and the Pauper" by Mark Twain.
