Episode Summary

Scythe For Sale: Billy accidentally sold Irwin the scythe.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Love 'Scythe For Sale'

    I think the episode 'Scythe For Sale' is really, really funny! 'Dream Mutt' was okay, 'cause Billy thanked his father for what Grim did. In 'Scythe For Sale', some guy out in the open keeps calling Irwin a dork. The part of 'Scythe For Sale' I really like was when Billy told Grim that he sold his scythe to Irwin, then Grim yells, 'You what?' really angrily in Billy's face. Billy told him again after that, except he was scared. Using the scythe, Irwin hypnotizes Mandy into loving him, and turns Grim into a slug. In the end, Mandy beats up Irwin, Grim gets his scythe back and is returned to normal, and Billy got his own sea critter.

    Grades for episodes:

    Dream Mutt - C

    Scythe For Sale - Bmoreless
  • Pretty good

    It was actually pretty good, and also funny, of course, as almost 99% of the time - the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy episodes are funny, In Dream Mutt, one Wiggy Jiggy Jed comes with a hat that I would want to wear, he gets on Billy's nerves and decides to destroy him. In Scythe for Sale, here comes the Dork Reaper, Irwin!
  • Funny

    This is so funny I ran out of breath just watching it, also, I learned an important lesson from the episode sythe for sale, that when you see a sycthe don't pick it up ask a grim reaper or a grownup to pick it up. lol, and the other episode wasn't that quite funny though.

      Billy's Dad: No problemo, son.
      Grim: Hey! What about me?
      Mandy: What about you?

    • Mandy: You know, Irwin? The thing about crushes is they always hurt in the end. That's why they're called crushes.

    • Dumpster Grouch: You see, kids. Playing with scythes isn't cool, or fun.
      Guy in a Broken Car: It's dangerous!
      Dumpster Grouch: So, if you ever should see a scythe, don't pick it up.
      Guy in a Broken Car: Tell an adult immediately!
      (both nod to each other)

      Grim: Do you realize what could happen if me scythe gets into the wrong hands?!
      Billy: I sure do! I mean, no!
      Grim: It could cause mass destruction and chaos, creating an imbalance in the universe, and bringing about the end of time as we know it!
      Billy: You make funny faces when you're angry.

  • NOTES (7)

    • We learn that Mandy collects napkins.

    • Billy's fish from Lil' Porkchop makes a cameo in this episode during the flashback of how Billy treated the last pet he had.

    • Credits: Iriwn gradually runs out the field to meet the mesmerized Mandy. He trips and drops the scythe. The scythe fell on his head. Irwin is having a picnic with Mandy. He spreads the butter on the toast with the scythe. Then it shot bolts at the hive, and Irwin runs around and slams himself to the tree with the beehive on his head.

    • Running Gags:
      1) Billy thanks his dad for what Grim did.
      2) Grim complains about wanting a little gratitude, and Mandy disses him off.
      3) Wiggy Jiggy Jed keeps calling Billy, "Ugly."
      4) Some guy out in the open calls Irwin a "dork."
      5) Irwin turns red in anger.

    • When Mandy was mesmerized by the scythe's magic, she almost smiled in this episode.

    • The full name of Wiggy Jiggy Jed is Sir William Wexell Wingding Whizzlebang the Third. It's quite a coincidence that he resembles to Auggie Doggie.

    • We learn Billy's dad was formerly a NAVY seal.


    • Wiggy makes a series of comical noises as he walks. This is a throwback to earlier cartoons where whacky noises are used for everything including simply walking.

    • Wiggy: ...we'll beat any price or your mattress is free!!

      This is an allusion to the Sit 'n' Sleep mattress chain in Los Angeles which features radio spots of owner, Larry Miller, driving his accountant, Irwin, crazy by making such guarantees. Irwin caps the spot with his wail, "You're killing me, Larry!"

    • Wiggy: So you can lick my candy-striped...

      This is a Futurama reference. Bender's catchphrase is "Bite my shiny metal ***!"

    • Wiggy: So you can just lick my candy-striped--

      When Billy and Wiggy and arguing about the bed, Wiggy says this while holding a candy cane. Many have speculated that this is a jab at Michael Jackson's genitellia, reported by many witnesses as being "striped like a barber pole."

    • Character: Garbage Muppet

      In the episode "Scythe for Sale," Billy was searching for Grim's missing weapon in the dumpster. A green character pops out and exclaims, "Get out of my house!" He resembles to Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street.
