Half-OT: Favourite episodes of your favourite series

Postby oceansoul » Thu Mar 26, 2009 5:18 am

This is kind of a thread I wanted to open long time ago. Just put together your favourite series from any age, including live action and animation, and put there your favourite eps. I won't include Looney Tunes, or MGM cartoons, since they have been asked zillion times...

Just my picks from animation:

Courage the Cowardly Dog: Chicken from Outer Space, Dr. Le Quack, Demon in the Mattress, C. in the Big Stinkin' City, Queen of the Black Puddle

Powerpuff Girls: Meet the Beat Alls, Bubblevicious, The Mane Event, Jewel of the Aisle, Super Zeroes (I know it's a bad show, but I happened to like it some years ago...)

DuckTales: Treasure of the Golden Suns (esp. part 5), Send in the Clones, Duck to the Future, Time Teasers (I forgot some ep. titles...)

Rescue Rangers: Good Times Bat Times, Adventures in Squirrelsitting, Seer No Evil, A Fly in the Ointment

South Park: Cartman Gets an Anal Probe; Bigger, Longer, Uncut; Trapped in the Closet (again, many titles escaped my memory, some more could be added)

Tom and Jerry: Heavenly Puss, Mouse Trouble, Part-time Pal, Night Before Christmas, Little School Mouse

Live action shows will come later.
One for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready, and
Four to.... GERONIMO!

Ed,Edd 'n Eddy-One plus one equals Ed-hillarious-I love watching Ed continuously opening the fridge to see if the little light stays on when you close the door.

Powerpuff Girls-Knock it Off-one of the darkest episodes-plus a great excuse to say the word "Dick" throughout the episode-the villain's name is Dick Hardly. I also love "Aspirations", "Powerpuff Girls Rules" "Somethings a Miss" "Mommy Fearest", "Buttercrush","Powerlunch", "Meet the Beat Alls" and many more...(I loved this series)

Courage the Cowardly Dog-"The Hunchback of Nowhere" "The Magic Tree of Nowhere" " Queen of the Black Puddle" "Squating Tiger,Hidden Dog"(absolute favorite) "So In Louvre Are We Two" "Ride of the Valkyries" "Uncommon Cold" "Profiles in Courage"
"Do you smell brimstone?"-Bugs Bunny

The Simpsons - Homer's Enemy
I know people have mixed feelings about this. Some felt that it was mean-spirited, while others thought it was hilarious. I fall into the latter category. Essentially this episode explains what it would be like if a normal person had to deal with Homer's antics.

Also enjoy "Cape Feare". Unusually slapstick for a Simpsons episode, with alot of funny scenes with Sideshow Bob.

Chowder - Panini for President
Thought it had nice character development with the three kids in the show (the namesake character, Panini and Gorgonzola). Panini's crush on Chowder goes to the point that she wants to own him as a property. And it establishes the relationship with the three. I'm hoping for more episodes with them.

Also like "The Hot Date". Chowder's barely in it, with the real star being Sgt. Hoagie. In it, he has to deal with Mung Daal and co. over a crime they may have committed at Miss Endive's pool. But at the same time he also has to get ready for a date. Cartoon Network, unfortunately, screwed up because they ended the episode prematurely (after Hoagie left with Endive, we find out that his date WAS waiting for him...in another restaurant next door). Thank god for iTunes.

My other faves include "Bruised Bluenana", "Sleep Eating", and "Brain Grub". But when it comes to this show, though, even the weak episodes have at least one LOL moment, so it's really hard to pick any favorites. But the ones I mentioned stick to my mind.

Rocko's Modern Life - Wacky Delly
I already went over this at another thread, so I won't go into too much detail.

Like "Chowder", Rocko has very little weak spots, so naming a favorite episode is really hard. That said, "I See London I See France" stick to my mind, because while the plot was average, the insane tour guide chasing Heffer through Paris was really, really hilarious.

Dexter's Laboratory - Dexter and Computress Get Mandark
This is a cult favorite. A 6 year old Dexter fan sends a tape to the producers with his story. The producers apparently liked it, so they animated over it (in a crude crayon style drawing).

"And Dexter said...uh..."

Ren and Stimpy - Stimpy's Invention
"Happy Happy Joy Joy" OWNS this episode.

I'll confess that "An Abe Divided" has a soft spot for me as well. Yeah, it's a Games episode, but it was also the first episode of R&S that I've ever watched. And I loved it then, and still do now.

Futurama - When Aliens Attack
Fry and gang performing "Single Female Lawyer" for the aliens made me laugh. "Cough, then fall over dead"
My Blog - Has some stuff
Terrytoons 1957-71 filmography - new credits (updated 12-8-2010)

Married with children was and is possibly my favourite sitcom and possibly my favourite TV show ever. Altough I'm not particularly good at episode names here, I had some big favourites:

Generally I loved all christmas-themed episodes.
Egg an I: the first ep. when Steve returned
When the No Ma'am met Jerry Springer
The Jim Jupiter episode
The horror vacation two parter
Chicago Shoe Exchange - the last episode
The England trilogy
The Librarian book episode
and many more. :)
One for the money,
Two for the show,
Three to get ready, and
Four to.... GERONIMO!
