Episode Summary

Keeper of the Reaper
Billy's dad has gotten a new job. Billy and his family are going to have to move to another part of town. However, he's always lived near to Mandy, and the two of them share the Grim Reaper. By Billy's relocating, this means that they have a problem. Who gets to "keep" Grim? Should Billy be the sole "owner" of Grim, and take him with him upon moving. Or should Grim be given to Mandy, and stay with her? To resolve this, both of them take their dispute to the Underworld Court, where a jury of hideous, nightmarish creatures (including one really annoying one) will decide once and for all who is truly the "Keeper of the Reaper."moreless

    good episode, one of the most memorable, mostly for fred fredburger. I really liked his character back when i first saw this, he was funny and i could imitate him really well. the entire episode is definitely one of the funniest of the series, i think. everything worked, not one dull scene, and the whole thing was really good, one of my favorites of the series, and so for a grade it gets an A+moreless
  • Fred Fredburgers first legendary appearance

    Billys Dad got a new job, so Billy and his family will move away. Billly and Mandy start arguing over who should get to keep Grim. Fred Fred Burger just steals the episode with his nonsense. Nachos! Yes! Fred Fred Burger, Fred Fred Burger! F - R - E - D - F - R - E - D - B - U - R - G - E - R! Yes! I just love the character that he is! And hes going to be in a spin off show called Underfist! Fred Fred Burger rules! Hes getting his own show! Yes!moreless
  • F-R-E-D F-R-E-D-B-U-R-G-E-R!

    I love Fred Fredburger. I may get my name changed to Cri Criburger in tribute.

    This is a great episode. A classy musical number "Grim's not a toy for an idiot boy who can't even tie his shoes...", comedy genius in Fred Fredburger and a heart warming conclusion.

    As always, this episode bridges the gap between toilet humour and being genuinly clever. It's a fine ballance that generally works. It's nice to see a "full length" story that gives a little more room to breathe. And did I mention that I love Fred Fredburger? Though I do feel for the poor judge.moreless
  • Fred Fred Burger is revealed! The battle over Grim!!!

    This episode was so funny! Wow, one of the best characters are revieled. The dumb witted elephant, Fred Fred Burger. When Billy leaves, it was funny as he moarns and when Mandy says "I second that emotion". The battle over Grim was hilarious. Escpecially the part when they sang together. And Grim didn't even get a say in the argument. When Grim says that they are acting like spoiled children, he tells them to act like spoiled adults. And to go to court. It was funny when Billy gets the wrong court. So this episode was really funny and one of the best of this show.moreless
  • Fred Fredburger rules !!!

    This episdoe was the best.

    Fred Fredburger had been brough up to do jury work.Billy is moving and Billy and Mandy both want Grim to keep. Meanwhle Fred Fredburger keeps inturuping the court with his idiotic needs,like nachos. He also keeps saying yes to everything. In the end him saying yes to verything made it all better and they both kept Grim

    It gets a then out of ten score from me,to make sure they dont go over broad with Fred. Billyis stupidity also made it a good eppisode and Grim traped in the cage,all good stuff. I hope this show goes on for a while longer.moreless

      Judge Roy Spleen: Can't it wait?

    • Billy: I love sappy endings!
      Fred: Yes.

    • Judge Roy Spleen: Now listen to me, I need you to - (Fred reaches for his gavel) Don't touch that! I need you to think about everything you learned today and tell me: Who should get Grim? Billy, or Mandy?
      Fred Fredburger: (pause) Yes.
      Judge Roy Spleen: Yes to Billy, or yes to Mandy?
      Fred Fredburger: Yes!
      Judge Roy Spleen: Yes.
      Fred Fredburger: Yes.
      Judge Roy Spleen: Yes, I see. You're saying Grim shouldn't be seperated from either Billy or Mandy because that would destroy their friendship.
      Fred Fredburger: Yes.
      Judge Roy Spleen: And friendship is our most personal treasure to share. (starts to cry, everyone else starts crying) Even more personal than toothbrush.
      Fred Fredburger: Yes.
      Judge Roy Spleen: Fred Fredburger, your words have moved my crusty heart. Therefore, I hereby declare Billy's family to be placed under house arrest and never be allowed to move! Court adjourned! (bangs his gavel)

    • Billy: So, Mandy? You think you can make me look bad?! Well, guess what, Mr. Missymiss. I don't need you to make me look bad! I can do that all on my own. And now, you force me to play dirty. (Billy starts playing in mud, laughing) I'm a dirty boy! I'm a dirty, I'm a dirty boy!!!
      Mandy: Billy, you've just evolved a notch up the idiot ladder.
      Billy: Such biting comments, Mandy. But now, they'll bite you - in the butt!

    • Billy: Please vote me
      the keeper of the Reaper.
      I want to be
      the keeper of the Reaper
      His skinny white bones
      are mine to own,
      to do with as I see fit.
      Give him to me and I promise
      my love won't quit.

      Mandy: I disagree
      about the keeper of the Reaper.
      It should be me
      who's the keeper of the Reaper.
      Grim's not a toy
      for an idiot boy
      who can't even tie his shoes.
      If Billy wins then we all surely lose.

      Grim: Do I get a say
      in the keeper of the Reaper?
      I'll make you all pay
      for the keeper of the Reaper.
      All my rage
      is bottled up in this cage,
      held back with these iron bars.
      I'll never get rid
      of the mental scars.

      Judge Roy Spleen: I don't care
      who's the keeper of the Reaper.
      I'm losing my hair
      over keeper of the Reaper.
      And all this stress
      is crushing my chest.
      I'm going blind in one eye.
      And it's all because of that stupid guy! (points at Fred)

      Fred Fredburger: (not singing) Mmm! Don't worry, I found some nachos! Yes. (Judge Roy Spleen hits Fred with his gavel and takes away the nachos) Ow!

      Billy: (rapping) Time to break it down, old school style!

      Billy: Grim is the corner in my square.

      Mandy: Grim's the chocolate in my eclair.

      Billy: Grim is the freshener in my air.

      Mandy: Grim's the conditioner in my hair.

      Billy: Grim's the picnic in my bear.

      Mandy: Grim is the cushion in my chair.

      Billy: Grim is the Renaissance in my fair.

      Mandy: Grim is the anger in my stare.

      Billy: Grim is the stain in my underwear.

      Mandy: Somehow I knew you were gonna go there.

      Courtroom: Please vote me the keeper of the Reaper.
      I wanna see the Keeper of the Reaper.

      Grim: All this singing is driving me nuts!

      Courtroom: Why not just cut Grim in half?

      Fred Fredburger: (at the same time as them, slowly) I just want some nachos...

      Judge Roy Spleen: An ulcer's eating away at my guts.

      Courtroom: That would be a real good laugh!

      Fred Fredburger: (at the same time as them, slowly) How is my nachos...

      Mandy: I totally hate
      that we have to debate.

      Billy: 'Bout whether it's me or you

      Everyone: It's obvious to everyone here,
      it's obvious to everyone here,
      it's obvious to everyone that-

      Fred: (interrupts song) I have to make poo-poo! (everybody else stops singing and stares at Fred, confused)
      Judge Roy Spleen: ...What?
      Fred: I, uh...I have to go make a poo-poo.

    • Mindy: She walks around being gross, and ugly, and everything, and doesn't even apologize for it!

    • Fred: Judge! Yes, uh, where are the nachos?
      Judge Roy Spleen: There aren't any nachos.
      Fred: Well then, where are the hot dogs?
      Judge Roy Spleen: There are no hot dogs.
      Fred: Pizza?
      Judge Roy Spleen: NO!!
      Billy: Tacos?
      Fred: I like tacos!
      Judge Roy Spleen: (hits Billy and Mandy together) Don't encourage him!
      Walrus Creature: Why not? This trial is an absolute joke anyway! It's obvious Grim should go to Billy.
      Three-Eyed Creature: Oh, please, are you infected with the bonkers? Mandy is the only sensible decision!

      Billy: Hmm. Grim or monkey heads! Grim or monkey heads!
      Billy: Under one hand, I get the power of the Underworld. On the other hand, I get monkey heads! (imagines Grim and the monkey heads saying 'Give me a banana'!)
      Monkey Head: Give me banana!
      Grim: Give me a banana!
      Monkey Head: "Give me banana!
      Grim: Give me a banana!
      Billy No, Mandy! I will not be distracted by your offerings of tasty snacks.

    • Fred Fredburger: I feel much better now, yes, thank you.
      Judge Roy Spleen: Let the trial custody continue!

    • Irwin: And, I wanna go home, please.
      Billy: Not until you read the part about my warehouse of compassion.
      Mandy: Objection. He's leading the witness.
      Billy: I'm not leading him. I'm just trying to make him say exactly what I want him to say.

    • Irwin: I believe that Billy is the best person in all the universe to take care of Grim, to keep him fed and clothed, and, and, and without Grim, Billy would whither for he would have no one to unleash his deep resevoir of love upon!
      Grim: Resevoir of love? Sick.

    • Billy: Irwin, if you would. Please tell the court in your own prewritten words why I, Billy, not Mandy!, am the best person to get custody of said Grim.

    • Grim: (reffering about Fred Fredburger) My life is in the hands of this guy? It's like I'm in some bad cartoon.

    • Fred: (About Wiggy Jiggy Jed's hat) Hey! Can I try on that hat? It's important for me to try on the hat because...
      Judge Roy Spleen: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?!
      Fred: Judge?
      Judge Roy Spleen: No, shut up.

      Mandy's Dad: When she was born, wolves came to the hospital to try to raise her as one of their own. Sometimes we wonder if we were wrong to stop them.
