    Well, Ed and Rocko are running for dog catcher. And, Ed brought more viewers with.... SHOLDERS! This episode is just great because, Heffer gets tagged with pins. :D So, Ed one in the end (Because he's a cheater and so are the chamelon brothers). The fall of Rome, the sinking of the Titanic, and the introduction of the 1952 ford modle. We're not saying Roco did any of these things. But, who you going to belive? That ad? Ed? Chamelon bros. This review? Hun? Well, I'll ask you later. So this is my review for the episode Ed good, Rocko bad. Any questions?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The music played for the corny Mervin the Happy Cat show is the theme from June and Terry, a British sitcom. It is entitled "Bell Hop" by John Shakespeare and is a stock music track from the KPM music library.

    • In "Ed Good, Rocko Bad," Spunky was taken for not having his collar. However in every scene afterwards, you could see his collar on.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Announcer: (in a monotone voice) Ah, that's another great shot for Dupet. Here comes Bighead, not a bad shot. Oh, what a surprise, the ball's hit by another piano. Well looks like we're off to another great day of Conglomo golf.

    • Dog Catcher: What?
      Rocko: I'm here to bail out my dog, Spunky.
      Dog Catcher: (looks at a list) Spunky, Spunky. What's he in for?
      Rocko: Uh, being a dog.
      Dog Catcher: That's what they all say, "It's not my fault I'm a dog! I'm made that way."
      Rocko: Uh, is there someone else I can speak to?

    • Dog Catcher: Hey, wait a minute, where's your collar and tag?
      Rocko: I'm not a dog, I'm a wallaby!
      Dog Catcher: A wallaby?
      Rocko: Yeah, it's like a kangaroo... except smaller.
      Dog Catcher: You just made that up!

    • Black Mask commander: Well we got it, good job boys! (Pilot crew cheer)
      Conglomo Boss: (shaking Ed's hand) Good job Bighead!
      Ed Bighead: Thank you sir.
      Conglomo assisstant: (seeing Heffer in smoke) WAIT!!!! (Sees Heffer with ball) HE'S GOT THE BALL!!!!

    • Stray Dog: (while being forced to watch corny cat show) Somebody neuter me!!

    • (reaction to commercial)
      Heffer: Rocko, you should be ashamed of yourself!
      Rocko: I didn't cause those things. I wasn't even alive in 1958.

    • Commercial Announcer: The fall of the Roman Empire, the sinking of the Titanic, and the 1958 Edsel. Now, we don't want to say that Rocko cause all these things. But it does make you think...Doesn't it?

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Conglom-O Assistant: Think, think, think...

      This is one of Winnie-the-Pooh's catchphrases in countless Disney Pooh cartoons when he is trying to think of something.

    • When Heffer was flying in the lawn mower, you can see explosions in the background from the pianos. This is probably a parody of a WWI/WWII dog fight.

      References:
      - Heffer was flying in a bi-plane style vehicle
      - Heffer was wearing an early flying outfit (goggles with loose straps, fur outfit, etc.)
      - The enemies were "giving him everything they had" and you can see them using all of their ammo (even launching pianos from space and from a boat). Normally for a last-minute drastic move to stop the enemy from having a good victory, they use all of their ammo.
      - After Heffer succeeded, he was laughing victoriously until a piano suddenly hits him and his plane starts to fall with him. This is similar to what happened to some pilots who achieved their goal but died in the progress.
      - Heffer crashed into the enemy base, destroying it. Sometimes when an enemy army brings down a plane, the plane itself can cause damage.
      - The whole background was done in a WWI/WWII style with bombs bursting everywhere, but the viewer just seeing black smoke.

    • Visual: Black Masked Figure

      The black mask guy on "Teed Off" is a parody of Darth Vader, from the original Star Wars trilogy.

    • Visual: Heffer's Biplane Scene

      When he's in the biplane with the fur flight jacket and the explosions are going off around him, it's an obvious parody of when Jim Belushi flew the biplane over the city.

    • Heffer: Heffer phone home! Heffer phone home!

      Obviously, this is a reference to a line from E.T. (1982).
