An iceberg floats above the sea surface on Bikini Bottom. Next morning, SpongeBob (Tom Kenny) and Patrick (Bill Fagerbakke) are quick to get into a snowball fight, much to the annoyance of Squidward (Rodger Bumpass). Their moody neighbor will just sit by his fire and squeeze a slice of lemon into his tea. It does not take long before Squidward also goes out in the cold.

This is not the first time that Bikini Bottom is covered in snow. But while snow was usually limited to Sandy’s wooden dome, it was only a matter of time before the underwater metropolis was hit. The inconsistent “rules” regarding Spongebob Squarepants turned out to be comedy gold. This episode also revealed a major weakness for Plankton, just before he plans to “harness its energy and rule the world” – accumulated snowfall.

He takes Timmy with him (Tara Strong) and awful babysitter Vicky (Gray DeLisle), but it goes wrong when an avalanche catches the two.

The identity of the abominable snowman is likely to make you hungry for a little pizza, and that’s a signature Fairly Odd Parents reveal. Like the main theme of the show, this episode focuses on Timmy and his problems. He will have to live without Cosmo and Wanda one day, so he will have to figure out his own solutions without them, as in this episode where they get frozen solid.

Grandpa’s to-do list of packing the pipes, cleaning the garage and salting the sidewalk does not fit well with Arnold’s hopes of sledding, igloo building and carving ice sculptures.

Only in the third season is it even brought up why Arnold only lives with his grandparents. The mystery was finally solved during the latest film, which helped tie loose ends to the series’ original course. Here, so grumpy as Grandpa Phil may be, while doing errands around the boarding house, he comes to the conclusion that he, too, was once a child. Arnold should enjoy some freedom.

Like a hard mistake, squash is not easy, and Brad and Tucker get stuck in the middle of the two robots.

As typical of one Teenage Robot episode, all Jenny wants to do is experience life as an ordinary teenager. But it’s not that simple, as Jenny is anything but ordinary. She is created to save the world. The introduced Cluster robot is the debut on the planet Cluster Prime, which would become an antagonistic force against the people of Earth with Jenny as its protector.

After detours and adventures, Aang (Zach Tyler Iron) and the gang finally reaches the Northern Water Tribe. Here, the Avatar hopes to learn from an expert water flexion master, but that lesson comes with a price. Katara (Mae Whitman), always Aang’s biggest supporter, finds out that she is not allowed to attend classes. In this strain, female waterbenders are resigned to being healers, not fighters.

As the penultimate episode of Book One, there are many recalls of previous episodes in Book One. The swords of Zuko’s ship (“The Blue Spirit”). The pirates that the main trio fought against reappear (“The Waterbending Scroll”). More than that, the series shows once again why Katara as a character is so powerful and essential. Unlike her brother and Aang, she has to fight more to gain respect for herself, but she fights hard for it.

It’s a boiling summer day and Jimmy (Debi Derryberry) uses a brain blast to put a quick stop to it. He launches a rocket and successfully blocks the sun. A little too successful. The falling temperatures do not stop falling. It does not take long before Jimmy has caused a new ice age.

Broadcasting early in the series’ first season, where Jimmy does not use his high intelligence to stop chicken-worshiping aliens, his wisdom tends to get him in trouble. When that happens, Jimmy has to be just as quick to find solutions. But without his attempts to change the summer, the audience would not have had a trio of fathers gather for a hunt (“Uk, close, close yeah! Oooh, Caribou!”).

But Otto must accept to use only Sno-Mart equipment, not his father’s Rocket Power brand. It will soon be shared by Otto and his sister Reggie (Shayna Fox).

This show was a love letter to extreme sports, from skateboarding, surfing, street hockey and as in this episode, snowboarding. The opening theme alone sells the show’s X-sport concept, sung by appropriate names Wipeouterne. Before Fast and furious franchise popularized it as a meme, Rocket power focused on the importance of “family” along with action-oriented sports.

Meanwhile, Ginger’s brother Carl (Jeannie Elias) gets the bright idea of ​​starting a carrier pigeon business. If the phone lines go down, Carl sees the dollar signs he can make. But the dog care he is stuck in goes south as the leash is found without the yapping dog.

From the opening scene, there is a subtle darkness touched on in this episode. Unlike other idyllic versions of snow, the storm here brings dangerous conditions. It makes sense since this was an animated series that was often based on realism. As told by Ginger remains a unique show in it showed a rare form of continuity, with characters growing emotionally and physically across each season. It was also all about more serious topics, such as depression and addiction.

Cat dog – Season 3, Episode 12: “Rinky Dinks”

As the country-twang of the opening theme begins, you may not be aware that it is close to two decades since this strange and lovable Nick cartoon was aired. There’s an abundance of random gags during “Rinky Dinks,” and that’s the charm of it Cat dog‘s arv. Anything can happen, which makes so much the more sense for a show about siblings from different animal species.
