TAWOG's "A Pal for Gary"
As a 20-year old, I have no shame in saying I love The Amazing World of Gumball despite my age. The shows writing is great, the jokes and references are often clever and the characters, even in such a surreal universe, are relatable. Gumball and Darwin genuinely feel like real kids. That being said, when I was finished watching, I was shocked out how awful this episode was. This is the first episode of the entire show I actually HATED. Before this, I never came across an episode t I disliked. At worst. I didn't care for a select few. This episode completely shattered that record. This episode is very much (as stated in the title) Gumball's "A Pal for Gary".
A Pal for Gary, if you didn't know, is the most infamous and hated episode of Spongebob Squarepants. In the much-hated episode (I would say *Spoilers*, but you don't want to waste your time with it, trust me) Spongebob buying a new pet so Gary can have a friend when Spongebob is at work. This pet, however turns out the be a monster and Gary continuously warns Spongebob, but Spongebob is completely oblivious. At the end, when the new pet morphs in the a horrific monster tries to eat Gary, Spongebob, seeing all this, yells AT GARY. The creature then attacks Spongebob and Gary saves him, but Spongebob still blames and punishes GARY. This episode is very much the same. This episode starts with Anais being born and Gumball and Darwin welcoming her with open arms, but it then turns out newborn Anais is evil and then tries the ruin Gumball and Darwin's life by framing them, placing deadly traps and trying to get Nicole and Richard to turn on them. Gumball and Darwin then try to fight back by trapping Anais in a box and give her a good scare to teach her a lesson. Anais, however, doesn't fall for it but the boys believe she is in the trap. When the box is the picked up by a garbage truck and taken to the dump, Gumball and Darwin chase immediately to save their sister, nearly being killed numerous times in the processing plants machinery. when they save the box, they find Anais isn't in and are then worried she might have been killed. Anais then shows up the push them in a pit of molten iron, but they instead run to hug and smother her, happy she is alive. Anais then tries to say her first word and it then to be revealed to be "Gumball did it" and it revealed Nicole and Richard are behind them and the screen turns to black. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT??? Firstly, newborn Anais being evil and wanting to kill her brothers comes completely out of nowhere. Anais and her brothers have their fights, but it was never so tense that they would physically harm each other. Secondly, Gumball and Darwin were acting reasonably throughout the episode. They welcomed their new sister with open arms and she then does nothing but cause them harm. When they tried to fight back, they weren't going too far and were just trying to give her a good scare, and when they think she is in real danger, they risk their lives to save her. BUT EVIL ANAIS WINS AT THE END, GETTING NO SUCH COMEUPPANCE FOR HER BEHAVIOR, AND GUMBALL AND DARWIN GET PUNISHED FOR ABSOLUTELY NO REASON. Just like A Pal for Gary, it reward evil and punishes the innocent. I am completely dumbfounded that the writers of such a great show could create an episode this eye-gouging horrendious!
A word of advice to any writers to a cartoon: If you are reading this (probably not, but if you do come across my review), STOP PUNISHING INNOCENT CHARACTERS AND REWARDING THE VILLAINS FOR NO REASON, IT'S NOT FUNNY, IT'S CRUEL
