  • "Mall Rat" was perfect BUT "Operation: Happy Birthday" was just a decent episode but not great.

    Mall Rat: I thought that this was a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". I thought it was hilarious when everyone especially the Chief got excited over the muffins and then the Chief steps on Kitty's face because he is excited over the muffins. I thought it was hilarious when Kitty would destroy everyone's muffins and sunshine because she thinks it's one of Snaptrap's evil scheme and that chipmunk girl would ask Dudley why Kitty is mean. Everyone loving Snaptrap's frozen yogurt was funny. The joke about when Dudley yelled "Roger" to Kitty when his friend Roger is actually behind Kitty was hilarious. Kitty fighting Snaptrap in the photo booth was very funny. The only thing that kind of bugged me about this episode was that it was too predictable that Snaptrap didn't change at all but I can let that slide. Overall, a perfect episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy". 10/10

    Operation: Happy Birthday: This was a decent episode of "T.U.F.F. Puppy" but I can't call it a great episode. I thought it was funny when Dudley said "Chief, we're in position" and then the Chief responds "I know that Agent Puppy, I'm on your head". It was pretty funny that the T.U.F.F. crew surprised Kitty at her house for her birthday and then Kitty shoots the birthday party all surprised. It was funny when Kitty shot the clown. Dudley surprising Kitty and then Kitty destroying it was pretty funny. It was very funny that Snaptrap and the other villains would throw Kitty a birthday party before he destroys both Dudley and Kitty. There were few things that I didn't like about this episode such as Dudley and Snaptrap being a little annoying in this episode, the story was a little weak, and I didn't like that Kitty only wanted to catch a bad guy for her birthday... she does that every day and can have a better birthday wish than that. There also could have been an ending improvement as well. Overall, this episode wasn't that great to me but it was overall a good episode. 7.5/10moreless
  • Mall Rat was perfect, Operation: Happy Birthday was great

    Mall Rat: It was a perfect episode. It is about Snaptrap forming a mall and stopped being evil. However, Kitty thinks that Snaptrap hasn't changed. It was very funny that Dudley is looking at meat. Dudley saying "Free muffin" was funny as well. Agent Nuts' appearance was hilarious. The Chief trying to eat the yogurt in the bathroom's floor was funny. Dudley pointing out that Roger is standing next to Kitty was funny as well. I liked the part where Kitty fought Snaptrao at the picture booth and then Snaptrap asked Kitty if he wanted a copy of them. The last part was funny. Overall, a perfect episode of TUFF Puppy. 10/10

    Operation Happy Birthday: It is Kitty's birthday. Kitty want to catch Snaptrap on her birthday. That was her birthday present. Her last birthdays weren't that good. I thought it was a great episode. My score is lower because I don't think Kitty catching a bad guy doesn't seems to be a perfect birthday present. Also, Snaptrap's plan was meh. I love cheese.Dudley said "Chief, we're in position" and then the Chief responds "I know that Agent Puppy, I'm on your head" was funny. It was funny that Kitty accidentally blasted everyone and then she blasts the clown. Dudley going for the cake was hilarious. The flashback with Kitty's previous birthdays were hilarious. Snaptrap's first part in this episode was funny. Snaptrap accidently eating the cheese was funny just like in "Cruisin' for a Bruisin'". Dudley sending Kitty with the balloons was very funny. Dudley showing the message "Happy birthday Kitty" and then Kitty destroys it was super funny. Overall, a great episode of T.U.F.F. Puppy. 8/10moreless
  • Great episodes! I liked Mall Rat better, though.

    Mall Rat: This episode was excellent, and probably the best T.U.F.F Puppy episode I've seen so far! My favorite parts were the scenes with the chipmunk girl and the Chief getting excited about the muffins. The only thing that bugged me a little was the predictability of Snaptrap not really having changed. My final grade for this episode is an A. As for Operation: Happy Birthday, it wasn't nearly as good, but I still liked it. It also had its moments like Snaptrap letting Kitty live just long enough to have a birthday party and the flashback of Kitty's past birthdays. I also thought the irony of Snaptrap being allergic to cheese was funny! My biggest gripe about this episode, though, is that the characters were especially annoying. It just seemed like Dudley and Snaptrap both shouted way too much in this episode, and, of course, Keswick was also annoying as usual. I liked the ending, though, when Kitty got her birthday wish. My overall grade for this episode is a B-. Marebear2009, out!moreless
  • Dudley has to prevent Snappy Mall from heading the sun and tries to celebrate Kitty's birthday...on a mission.

    Mall Rat: Verminious Snaptrap (again...) is released from prison, and announces he is good and will be giving away free muffins. Dudley and all the citizens of Petropolis sans Kitty, believes him and goes for the muffris. Kitty destroys them all thinking they were poinson, or bombs, or poisonous bombs, but Keswick analises one and says they only were blueberry. Then Snaptrap says he'll take away the rina and give them a sunny day, but Kitty destroys the waether changing ray. Finally he lures them all inside his new mall "Snappy Town", where he locks them and plans to send the mall to the sun. Kitty has a plan, have Dudley shoot the fuel tank in the right moment so they go throw the edge of the sun and return. Meanwhile Snaptrap realizes he is still on the mall. So Dudley shoots and returns and then the Cheif gives them a pretzel and some glasses.

    Operation: Happy Birthday It's Kitty's birthday and the only thing she wants to do is to catch a bad guy. Fortunately Snaptrap has a plan, and Kitty and Dudley are asigned to the case. Turns out Snappy doesn't have a plan, and just wanted to be on TV, but after eatying a cheese sandwich, he gets a plan - make a cheese-free world. Dudley and Kitty follow him to the Chilly Pot Shop, where thanks to Dudley's birthday card, they get trapped. Snappy is about to fry then in lava, when Dudley tells him it's Kitty's bday. He makes a party for her, and Dudley uses Keswick's flash-baker to appear a cheesecake, which Snappy eats and bloats, accdentally firing all weapons and freeing Kitty and Dudley, who catch them. Kitty got what she wanted, she caught a bad guy.

    Bottom line: 2 more great peisodes. The only thing I disliked was how Kitty was the "mean lady" on Mall Rat, but both episodes had great lines like the "where do you get these people" gag. Also Larry was awesome. I love the way Snaptrap says: Laaaaaaaarry. 9.5/10moreless
  • Another 10!

    There have been six eleven-minute episodes in the show so far, and every single one of them got an easy 10. This is amazing considering that 5 out of 6 of them were written by present day Fairly Odd Parents writers. So far, this episode (more specifiacally Mall Rat) was my favorite episode yet. The plot was excellent and the humor was great. I liked Agent Nuts's role in this episode and I also liked the chipmunck girl's role. It was also funny how D.O.O.M. stopped their cheese plan to celebrate Kitty's birthday in Operation: Happy Birthday.

    Overall, this is an exellent show and this is another episode with an A+moreless
