  • This episode was full of original scenes and a few running gags.

    I enjoyed this episode. It was hallarious. I especially liked the part when billy says to his mom "Every time I take a bite of this vitamin enriched bread, it keeps getting smaller." Very funny and totally original. There are also some running gags in this episode including when Gladys spends a while in the bathroom with a mud mask and cucumbers on her eyes. Later, Grim goes on his annual bathroom break. Grim does exactly what Gladys did. There is also one where when billy has a piece of bread and when Irwin say something, Billy believes that the bread is talking. This gag goes on for a while in this episode while billy, mandy and irwin go to the movies. Basically, this episode was about Gladys having crow's feet on the side of her eyes, and grim needed to use the bathroom, so grim zaps Gladys so she would look younger. Unfortunately, he made her a bit too young. Later, Billy meets younger gladys and names her "Corn," after the slice of bread she gave him. This is one of the best thought up funny episodes in the series.
  • There two were nice episodes, although The Taking Tree turned out to seem more of the better episode.

    The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy did a good job on these two episodes, Mommie Fiercest and The Taking Tree, but there were parts that might've - really didn't need to be mentioned or parts that needed more information on it. In Mommie Fierecest, here goes Gladys with her mid-life crisis, crow's feet, so Grim turns her young, and becomes "Corn." In The Taking Tree, there is a magical tree that... takes stuff, and they need to retrieve their stolen items, but how?
