    ***Spoiler Warning: Plot and ending details in review***



    "Duck" begins with Grim having a nightmare, which unleashed a ghost duck. The duck follows Grim making fart sound to annoy and embarres him. Grim winds up in jail for ripping his cloak off in front of children claiming he did not have a stomach and could not fart. Grim calls Irwin to pay the bail but does not give enough money. The duck follows Irwin and makes fart sounds in the car and at a baseball game he watches. A mob gets Irwin, his father, and his grandmother arrested for 'insulting' a baseball player. The duck then follows Billy's dad. He is arrested for apparently no reason. The duck then fills up the jail cell with other people. It is finally stopped by Mandy when she has no concern over what he does, which causes the duck to dissapear. Everything goes back to 'normal' and Mandy gets detention. "Aren't you Chupacabra to see me" starts with Grim, Billy, and Mandy going to an underworld blockbuster after watching a movie over sixty times (Billy keeps on forgeting he already watched the movie). Grim and Mandy think the movie that Billy rented is stupid and go away. When they are gone, a chupacabra comes out of the television (similar to "The Ring") and Billy keeps it as his 'first' pet. He names it Daisy thinking it is a dog and takes it for a walk. Billy and Daisy see Irwin and his dog. Daisy sucks some of Irwin's/dog's brains/blood. When the two come home, Grim tells Billy that Daisy must go back into the movie because his perfect record is in jeporady. Daisy disapears and Billy mourns his loss, then yells at Milkshakes, who is stuck in a tree, about losing his first real pet.moreless
  • A ghost duck follows people around in "Duck!" Only they can see him, and makes farting noises to get them in trouble. In "Aren't You..." a chupacabra comes out of the TV from a video Billy watches that Grim rented from underworld video store.moreless

    This episode was classically hilarious, with "Duck!" being the better of the two. I loved the reference to the Talking Heads' song "Once in a Lifetime" when Grim says "This is not my beautiful..." and Billy calmly says "Same as it ever was; same as it ever was; same as it ever was!" That was just hilarious. I also liked how the bear guy (forgot his name!) was seen as he said "I'm not even in this show anymore!" The duck was a great thing for this show, and as my review states, exactly why I watch this series. "Aren't You Chupacabra to See me?" was funny as well, but not quite as good. Still funny as ever, but it can't match "Duck!"moreless
  • Aren't You Chupacabra to See Me was off track

    9.2
    If you ask me what I seriously thought about these episodes, in my opinion, I would say that Aren't You Chupacabra to See Me was the worse one of these two pretty cool episodes. It just didn't fit in, although the humor, such as the Billy-moon-blind combo, was great! And Duck, another funny one, a lesson for farting, never make soft farts.
  • Irwin's Dad: I think we better jittity jet.

    This was the funniest episode yet! I t started out with the episode Duck! This episode had some really funny jokes, and a little bit of mature humor, Grim finding a bra in Billy's room. It was about a ghost duck who kept making fart noises and landing everybody in jail. The funniest joke in this episode is where the little kids give grim a soda ,a dn the duck makes a fart noise the little kids think Grim did it, Grim takes off his robe and screams look at me body! that was hilarious. Then there was

    Aren't You Chupacabra To See Me? This was also a really good episode, with some really funny humor, Billy watching the Labbie tape over and over , and then renting the Chupacabra tape, and making Grim cry when he called the movie stupid, and then when the creature came to life and attacked Irwin's dog and his head, I feel so lightheaded. Really funny episode I was laughing the whole time!moreless

      Mandy: No she's not, Billy. Daisy is the corporeal manifestation of the TV images you saw the other night.
      Billy: Hee, hee, hee! Mandy talk funny words.
      Mandy: What I'm trying to say is, Daisy is a ghost cursed to live inside the video. It comes out of the TV to suck the life out of its victims. That's how it lives, how it survives. And now we must return it back to the video from wence it came.

      Hector Con Carne: I'm not even on this stupid show anymore!

    • Mandy: You think you've won?

You have no power over me.

    • Mandy: Billy, what happened?
      Billy: I don't know. I fell asleep, and had this crazy dream that I was naked at school, and the "chupacablahblah" attacked me.

  • NOTES (8)

  • ALLUSIONS (10)

    • Irwin's Dad's car: At the side of the engine of Irwin's dad's car, You can see the word "Escalady" written on a small silver plate. This is a spoof of the car Esacalade.

    • Billy: This movie isn't stupid! You're stupid!

      This is an indirect reference to "Flowers for Algernon", where Charlie Gordon tells Dr. Strauss that the doctor is dumb. Also, as another reference, on Dexter's Laboratory, they had a chupacabra named Charlie.

    • Hector Con Carne: I'm not even on this stupid show anymore!

      It displays the fact that Evil Con Carne no longer airs on Cartoon Network.

    • Mandy: Poor thing's going to starve.

      This line is very similar to one in Futurama, where after a brain slug (which feeds on brains) died after staying on Fry's empty head, the Professor examined it and said "Poor thing starved to death."

    • Irwin's dog Irwin's wiener dog is named Oscar.

      This is a reference to the Oscar Mayer company, which is famous for its hot dogs.

    • Grim's force:

      The way Grim pulled the Labbie video out of the VCR was the same way a Jedi Knight do to grab the lightsaber from Star Wars.

    • Grim: (having a dream) Wait, this is not me beautiful house! This is not me beautiful wife!
      Billy: (trying to wake Grim up) Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was!

      Grim is quoting the speaking line from the Talking Heads song "Once in a Lifetime", where the singer David Byrne says, "and you may say to yourself 'this is not my beautiful house,' and you may tell yourself 'this is not my beautiful wife!'" Billy completes the reference by reciting the ending part of the song, which has David Byrne chanting "same as it ever was" over and over.

    • Movie Title: Labbie

      It's a spoof of the movie about a heroic dog from the first movie Lassie. Both of them have the same boy named Timmy.

    • Scenario: Ghost inside the video tape.

      The way Daisy emerges from the television is a reference to the horror movie, The Ring, where a ghost haunts the video tape.

    • Scenario: Wearing beards at a baseball game

      Irwin and his family are going to a baseball game and are wearing fake goatees, as is the rest of the audience. This is probably mocking the pitcher Matt Clement, who has a recognizable goatee and some fans like to wear similar fake goatees to games when he pitches.
