    The first one was just really stupid and didn't make a whole lot of sense, even if I do admit I liked seeing Kitty in a bikini.



    T.U.F.F goes on vacation because it's the same time as D.O.O.M does?



    What? Who does that? And didn't they think that could seriously backfire? D.O.O.M could easily wreak havoc on Petropolis while they're away.



    And Snaptrap attacking with an iceberg?



    That is just ridiculous.



    First of all, it would most likely melt in the sun before they would arrive. Secondly, why in the world would he attack with it while above water?



    Didn't he think for one minute they'd see an oncoming iceberg coming towards them?



    As for the 2nd, it was even worse.



    T.U.F.F decides that they need a new secretary, WHILE THE CURRENT ONE WAS BURIED IN PAPERWORK IN THE EXACT SAME BUILDING?



    What in the world? That makes absolutely no sense. Why not just search for her first before making such a move?



    And secondly, the Chameleon's efforts to disguise himself properly were absolutely atrocious.



    He doesn't change his voice at all to sound like a female, take the time to fake a believable French accent, or even keep his obvious reptile behavior a secret.



    The Chameleon even ate a bug with his reptile tongue right in front of them! How in the world did they not question that if nothing else?



    And furthermore, why in the world would any secret agency have a self destruct button in plain sight for anyone to press?



    A little kid could sneak in and press it if he knew where it was.



    Seriously, what was Hartman's writers thinking here?



    These episodes were just beyond awful.



    Just completely painful to watch when I look at them more closely.

  • Two perfect episodes of "T.U.F.F. Puppy"

    10
    Cruisin' for a Bruisin': I thought that this was a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". I loved the idea of T.U.F.F. taking a week long vacation. I thought it was funny when Chief has his American underwear. It was funny when Chief says "I'm king of the world" and then a seagull grabs Chief. I thought it was hilarious when Keswick was taking forever to sing "Row Your Boat" at the karaoke. I thought it was very funny when Dudley kept bugging Kitty about how D.O.O.M. is coming any sooner. I thought it was hilarious when Dudley and Kitty get ready to go to sleep and then Dudley asks Kitty if she can tell him a bed time story and Kitty's story was "Once upon a time, I hit a dog with the alarm clock" and then Dudley responds "I don't like that story". It was hilarious that Snaptrap is allergic to cheese and he swells up. I thought it was hilarious when D.O.O.M.'s punishment was to listen to Keswick sing "Row Your Boat" because it takes him forever to finish it. The very ending was hilarious when Chief says "This is the greatest vacation ever... okay, now it's weird" because his American underwear came off. Overall, a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". 10/10



    Puppy Love: Just like "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'", this was a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". I thought it was funny that Dudley falls in love with the new intern (who is actually the Chameleon). I thought it was very funny when the Chameleon turned into the taxi and the two monkeys ask him if they can drop them off at the airport and the Chameleon says "okay". It was funny when the new intern (Chameleon) got creeped out when Kitty told him that Dudley has a crush on him. It was funny when Keswick fainted after he saw that the new intern was the Chameleon. I also thought it was funny when Dudley said "ewww... I kissed the Chameleon". It was also hilarious when the Chief was counting down how many more seconds until the bomb would explode but was actually counting down when his burrito was ready. Overall, a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". 10/10moreless
  • Both of these episodes are superb, but not the best storyline though

    9.0
    Cruisin for a Bruisin: I thought it was a superb episode. The storyline was not bad but I think Dudleyrepeatedlyhurting and bothering Kitty was kinda getting annoying to me. So my score is lower and the plot is not really the best. It is about T.U.F.F. taking a cruise while D.O.O.M. doesn't. However, then Snaptrap noticed he wanted to be a cruise. The parts that I liked were Larry saying something and then Snaptrap threw him in the shark tank, Chief having blonde hair, Dudley in a tank, Snaptrap licking the ice having histonguestuck, Kewsick singing Row Row Row Your Boat and getting stuck on the Row part, seagull taking the Chief, Snaptrap beingallergicto cheese and turning huge (it made me LOL so hard), Kitty telling Dudley a story in annoyance and the last part. Overall, it was a superb and a bit funny episode. 9/10

    Puppy Love: It is superb like the last episode but I don't think the plot isn't good either. It is about Dudley falling in love with the new temp. The temp turned out to be the Chameleon. My favorite parts were the Chameleon turning into a taxi while the monkeys asked him to go to an airport, Chameleonaccidentallydefusing a bomb, Dudley being disgust that he thoughts he kissed the temp which was actually the Chameleon and the Chief counting down the bomb. The rest of the parts were boring. Overall, a superb episode. 9/10moreless
  • Two of my favorite episodes!

    Cruisin for a Bruisin: This was an excellent episode that made me laugh the whole way through! I thought all of the Chief's scenes were great, and I also thought D.O.O.M being forced to listen to Keswick sing as a punishment was hilarious! I also thought it was funny how Dudley kept bugging Kitty, especially when he wanted to hear a bedtime story. Puppy Love was also a great episode! I thought the Chameleon trying to sound French and somewhere out of the blue saying "Bon Jovi" was hilarious, and I also thought it was funny how Dudley wanted to marry him, still thinking he was Fifi Oui Oui. The joke about the Chief's burrito was also hilarious! The only part that didn't make sense to me was the scene with the monkeys wanting a ride to the airport. Overall, though, these are two of my favorite episodes, and my final grade for both of them is an A+! Marebear2009, out!

  • T.U.F.F. and D.O.O.M. agree to take a week off, only this year, D.O.O.M. isn't!;The Chameleon's plan to blows up T.U.F.F. from the inside backfires when Dudley falls for his disguise.

    Cruisin' for a Bruisin': T.U.F.F. goes on thear annual vacation on a cruise, where Chief goes to sunbath, Keswick goes to the karaoke, and Dudley wants to hang out with Kitty, much to her dismay. The only way she oculd think of distracting Dudley was to make him think they are undercover looking for a villian, the thing is D.O.O.M. is really going to attack the cruise! Dudley's effoert to catch the bad guy thwart Kitty's plans for relax, and when Dudley sees Snaptrap head to take the wheel. He manages to dodge the iceberg Snaptrap made to crash the cruise once, and then Kitty appears, and admits she was wrong and apologizes, but then Dudley uses her tanning wheel to melt the iceberg. Snaptraps's punishment? HAve to listen to Keswick trynig to finsih the song "Row your boat".



    Puppy Love: The Chameleon is out of prison, and he learned hwile there every super secrey spy HQ have a self-destrcut buitton, and he is determined to infiltrate and push it. The Cheif arrives only to see that after theyb lost their secretary the agancy is a mess, so the Chameleon decides to inflitrate as french poodle Fifi Oui Oui. He is hired, but Dudley falls for him. He asks him to show him around to find de boom-button. Dudley takes him to the snack room, where he tells him not t prest one button cause it blows up the building. So Fifi, while noone is looking pushes it, and tries to leave, but Dudley bumps with him and takes hi mto a dinner in the elevator. There Dudley proposes, and fifi accepts as long as they flee, but the grape juice falls on him, making his suit momentarily malfunction and Kitty discovers him. They tell the Cheif to evacuate, and then they try to kick Chameloeon but he is gone so they leave. The Chameleon was hidnig as a bottle, but forgot that to lewave the elevator he had to be an agent so the blow up gets him and he falls on prison.



    Bottom Line: Two more good episodes, I loved the Chameleon's fake accent (bon jovi, notre dame, tour de france, escargot, etc.) 9/10moreless
