Someone asked for The Vacation in 1080p!?
Because I almost had it.
"The Shell" is God Tier, and "The Void" is good tier.
Every other ep has pretty much been meh tier, because they all depend too heavily on all the characters acting frustratingly stupid. I had in fact given up on this show because of the stupidity, before "The Shell".
This show is not for you son.
What do you want to see Gumball and Penny do together?
Anyone have a recording of just the soundtrack for "The Shell"? The music is beautiful.
IIIIIICCCCCCEEEEEEEE TO SEE YOUUUUUUUUU too!!!
I'm about 2 episodes into S3 and see The shell spoilers everywhere. Can I watch it now without ruining any buildup?
Me too. The lightbulb design is atrocious. Put her back inside the shell but let Gammblor keep dating her.
>Wanting AT status quo reversion.
I get liking the shell design more, but what is so atrocious about the light bulb?
I really like what they do with her eyes. That whole choking scene would look weaker with the shell form.
No, let her date Gumball that was always expected, just do away with the lightbulb design and let her pop put of the shell every once in awhile when she feels like but stop with charade with trashing the old shell design and making this the norm. People always wanted two things:
1. To see what was hiding inside the shell
b. To have her finally date Gambo
Both are achieved but the lightbulb design is such an eyesore and looks lazy/half assed. However, when she shape shifts between forms instantaneously to show off her emotions that shes scared or worried, those are really cool animation sequences. Her 'default' lightbulb design is displeasing to the eye and she looked alot better with the shell on though.
What is so lazy or half/assed about it though? It's a unique and different design. They are able to do more with her eyes and junk. All I'd change is give her back her shoes and arm bands
3 years of waiting, all the hype, and the best design they can give us is a lightbulb with antlers and neon colors? Its an eyesore. They could have come up with a better design. And yes now that you mention it, she needs her shoes and armbands back too. Another problem I noticed is how much the 'new' Penny looks like the pokemon, Togetic
But again, what is eyesore worthy about the design? Do you just not like the colors or the head? No one knew what to expect of the new design (besides deerfags foolishly hoping their headcanon would come true), so getting a unique and distinguishing design is all I hoped for. No clue what would be "better".
And how is she more toyetic than nearly every Gumball character?
I think most of us here agreed lightbulb Pen is probably the best design they can think of to please everyone/most of the Gumball fanbase.
I've seen very little complaints regarding about her design.
Sorry if her new design doesn't come up with your standards anon.
It's good, even better after The Shell lately.
My only complaint is how they still continue to show Gumball thinking about Penny drama even after The Bros as seen from a leak of The Mirror.
But as long as the show continues the TAWoG element, I doubt it'll turn to shit.
When do you think they will make an official episode called "The Convention" where Sarah drags Gumbo and Darwin to an anonimoo convention against their will? That would be such a
I was just looking that up myself...
Thursday is "The Mirror" I think its set for 15 min, not sure if "The Man" will follow or be put off for the week after but it should be a 30 min special (both episodes)
also Ben BBQsauce mentioned The Triangle and I think The Money on his twatter.
If anyone has XML leaks with titles and descriptions, please post them. Those are the only 'for sure' ones that I know of.
The Kids and The Fan was a season premiere and not a 'special'. None of the events in The Fan had anything to do with The Kids. From what I heard, the entire story of 'The Mirror' was supposed to span the entire 30 minutes (opposed to the usual 15 minute episodes) and last I checked, Gumball is only airing for 15 minutes this week (The Mirror) so it seems odd to me.
A lightbulb Penny plush would be perfect.
Is that official merchandise or is it fanmade? An official Carrie plush would be cool. Here is someone's homeemade Sarah. Someone also made a lifesize paper Teri cutout.
>None of the events in The Fan had anything to do with The Kids
No shit, what I mean is that The Mirror and The Man will air at the same time slot this Thursday.
Not your usual 1 new episode Thursday.
I just looked at the schedule they're doing something strange... Gumball will air The Mirror at 6:15PM in its 'usual' slot next to Clarence, and then at 7:00PM, Gumball will air The Man and then The Bros at 7:15PM (e.g. they aren't showing both episodes in a 30 minute block) so this is something new and I didn't see The Man reported on the Toonzone schedule which had the scheduled list of episodes for October 2014. I didn't think The Man would air this same week but they are doing a weird scheduling for some reason this week.
It still makes no sense... there are three Gumball episodes (instead of two). They could hold off airing The Bros until another date and air The Mirror and The Man in the 30 minute block instead. Regular Show has its 30 minute special Terror Tales Into The Park but its airing on Wednesday and has its regular new episode on its normal Thursday timeslot. Its just strange to see this Gumball "Halloween special" (which I've seen people in these Gumball generals bill it as a 30 min 2 pt special) split into two episodes airing at different times 6:15PM and then 7:00PM (opposed to a natural 7:00PM then 7:15PM airing)
its like the way you buy pizza... you pay for a whole pizza, a large but you ordering a pizza, getting 67% of the pizza now, and then a few hours later, the pizza man delivers the remaining 33%. Its not that I'm complaining about more of it in the lineup, the method of delivery (a 2-part Halloween special) split into episodes airing at strange times when they could naturally do both episodes at 7:00PM then 7:15PM) (e.g. you get the whole pizza in one shot/delivery) It also kills the momentum since Steven Universe airs right after the first part (The Mirror) airs at 6:15 so people who don't want to sit through Steven Universe, have other stuff to do, or get tired of waiting will miss out on the 2nd part. This new post-Stuart Snyder era Cartoon Network seems to be strange to me and especially with their viral 'catchphrase' marketing campaign with the bright colors and no references to the show (you should see they take huge billboard adspace in parts of Hollywood with huge cathphrases and quotes from the shows, no designs or characters or drawings or references to Cartoon Network and they're expecting people to understand the references in public. I'm just questioning CN and their marketing/scheduling tactics that is all.
Ben got a HELL of a whole lot more respect in my book. Apparently the people from PFFR (they are a band and a production company that made a little show called Wonder Showzen that is legendary) produced and worked on the failed Gumball 2008 pilot. I saw their name (PFFR) in the credits but not have seen the original Gumball pilot itself (from 2008). Is it available anywhere??
Very cool! Thanks for sharing that, I've never seen it. All I know is I was looking at PFFR's credits on IMDB and saw that they were credited on working on "Gumball (failed 2008 pilot)" and thought WHOA! and their dark humor totally matches some of the stuff that Gumball does but PFFR does lots of music so I could see maybe they did the background music if this was in fact the 2008 pilot mentioned or if there is another one, possibly longer. Too bad they don't show the end credits after the US version airs (in full screen) so I could scan and see if PFFR is credited in the current version of Gumball. It might be that they were the ones who made the theme music at the beginning? Also, someone should check if Vernon Chatman or John Lee (two of the PFFR guys and the ones who created Wonder Showzen) are credited in any way on the current Gumball episodes...
Here is another famous character from Wonder Showzen (Chauncey)
