Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • superb

    Ruthless Tommy:

    Two men kidnap Tommy, thinking he is the son of a billionaire. But they will soon learn the hard way what happens when you mess with Tommy Pickles.

    Moose Country:

    Grandpa tells Tommy and friends about a moose, and the kids take his story to heart, so they go on a quest in the backyard to find the moose. Will they be able to?

    Good episodes but neither was my cup of tea. They both had some good parts (like the ending to Ruthless Tommy, for example), but overall both also had kind of boring parts to them, too, I thought, so because of all of this my final grade is in the "B" range. Good episodes but could have been bettermoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • There are some animation errors in this episode. First, look at Chuckie's shirt. To begin with, the planet on his shirt is usually yellow with red rings around it. During most of this episode, the planet was red with yellow rings. However, the planet turned yellow with red rings when Tommy, Phil, and Lil find Chuckie in a mud hole (they unwittingly abandoned him when they continue to look for the moose). After they got him out, it turned back to red with yellow rings. Then, after they broke the spigot on the water hose, the planet was "blinking" red and yellow, then yellow and red, then red and yellow again, before sticking with a red planet with yellow rings.

    • Goof: In the episode "Moose Country" when Phil and Lil are fighting over how to catch the moose, there is a scene where they are screaming "hole" and "net" at each other but neither of their mouths are moving.

    • Goof: In a couple scenes on the episode "Moose Country" Chuckie can be seen with a full set of teeth, meanwhile he only has two.

    • Goof: In "Ruthless Tommy" when Bob and Mike are bringing Tommy back, the grass outside the Pickle's house is pink.

    • Goof: In "Ruthless Tommy" when Bob and Mike leave to get Tommy milk, the stuff on the table is gone then when Tommy looks around, the stuff is back again.

    • Goof: In "Moose Country," there is a flub involving the babies breaking the spigot on the water hose. There is a timer used to control the water. We see it when the spigot hits it. If you look close enough, you can see "timer" is spelled as "timor."

    • Goof: In "Moose Country" when Tommy and the twins go back in the hole to help Chuckie get out, they are covered with mud. During several cuts back to them pushing Chuckie, they're clean, but when they climb out of the hole, they're dirty again.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (After eating his first worm)
      Tommy: It doesn't taste too much like chocolate spaghetti, but it dances all the way down.

    • Chuckie: All this for what?! HUH! A MOOSE?! I don't see any moose. (just as a shadowy figure creeps up behind him) Where's the moose, Tommy? Where? Where?
      Tommy: (Points behind him) There!

    • Mike: We've been had! The little thief nabbed the rubies!
      Bob: Come on. He's just a baby.
      Mike: Yeah, a baby impersonator.
      Bob: What? He had his partner waitin' outside in the getaway stroller?
