Product Description

Cartoon Network: Chowder: Volume 1 (DVD)

Amazon.com

An odd but sweet and frequently funny animated series, Chowder is the brainchild of writer and artist C.H. Greenblatt, whose previous credits, SpongeBob SquarePants and The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy (among others), are echoed by the surreal goings-on in this program. Set in the bustling metropolis of Marzipan City, Chowder follows the adventures of its eponymous hero (voiced by Nicky Jones), an excitable young creature whose impulsive nature often gets in the way of his abiding dream: to learn the art of cooking from his employer, master chef Mung Daal (Dwight Schultz). Episodes generally follow Chowder's sincere attempts to please Mung, which range from thumb-wrestling a complicated dish into submission ("The Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin") to staying up all night to complete a recipe ("The Sing Beans"); others focus on his equally odd friends and fellow employees, like his gaseous pet Kimchi, who falls in love with a odiferous meal in "Stinky Love," or the rabbit-like Panini, who harbors a crush on Chowder in "Chowder's Girlfriend." More often than not, the show veers into genuinely dream-like territory, as in "The Thrice Cream Man," where Chowder becomes obsessed with a creature made from a sweet dessert. As novel premises and execution goes, Chowder compares favorably to Greenblatt's other animation credits, though one wonders if he'll be able to maintain the off-kilter charm of the ten episodes included in this disc over the course of multiple seasons; the engaging weirdness of the characters and stories certainly makes one hope he can. All of the episodes mentioned here are included in the single disc, along with five other stories (not shown in their original broadcast order), which makes for only half of the first season's episodes; given their short running time (about 10 minutes), one wonders why the entire season couldn't have been packaged in this set. Also, a glimpse into the Greenblatt's creative process would have been welcomed by fans and first-time viewers alike, but the sole extra is a storyboard comparision. -- Paul Gaita

I love Chowder. but this is too little content for the price.
This DVD does not contain half of Season 1. It contains one fourth of Season 1. There were 20 episodes containing 38 cartoons (Two were double length). This DVD contains 10 of the 38 cartoons as five episodes. The description above says 10 episodes when it is actually ten cartoons. The widescreen picture is beautiful, and the cartoons are grouped into two cartoon episodes (just like on TV) so that you get to see all of the clever and funny openings and closing credits. The menus are well done, and include a "Play All" option. But this is gonna cost over $[...]bucks for the first season IF they all come out on DVD!?!

Chowder is a great cartoon and I'm thrilled to have it on DVD finally! I just wish the first Vol. contained more episodes than 5, when the first season had 20 episodes total.

Segments included on this DVD:
- The Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin / Chowder's Girlfriend
- Grubble Gum / The Cinnamini Monster
- Certifrycation Class / The Sing Beans
- Majhongg Night / Stinky Love
- The Thrice Cream Man / The Flibber-Flabber Diet

Chowder is really one of the greatest things to come along on Cartoon Network since Dexters Lab. It has a different and highly creative art style that is absolutly gorgeous. Not to mention that the show itself is hilarious and fresh. I already have both seasons downloaded through Zune, but buying the DVD's was a no brainer as soon as I heard about the widescreen format.
It seems trivial but the full widescreen picture, which the show is originally made for, makes quite a difference even from the intro and you get to see all the beautiful lighting on the inner sides of the oven that you couldnt see before. Also, the picture quality itself is improved drastically over digital downloads, no more digital artifacts blurring up the screen during Chowders many random food transitions or fast sequences. The dvd looks amazing and crisp even on my 1080p TV being played off an xbox360. My only gripe is that you only get a few episodes per DVD, and the next installment isn't even due for another few months yet cruddy shows like Bakkugan are already on their 3rd dvd. Come on, CN don't hold out on us!

I stumbled upon this cartoon because I was in the same room as my sister when she was watching it. At first glance, I thought it was like any other poorly thought out cartoon, but I got hooked on the story and continued to watch.

Chowder is definately one of the most creative cartoons I've ever watched. The creators are truly talented. The stories are actually original!! The anamation styles used vary in an interesting blend. The fantasy element of the show is catchy; there's so many crazy people and foods that exist in their world. The humor is everything you could want from a cartoon, its sophisticated and childish at the same time.

I appreciate some of the vulgar cartoons out there, don't get me wrong. But Chowder is like a breath of fresh air. It's clean, wholesome comedy that parents could watch with their kids, and actually enjoy watching it. My sister and I are both in our twenties and we both love the show. At the same time there are so many things about Chowder that would captivate kids; its very imaginative.

I haven't met anyone who's watched this show and not liked it, so to anyone considering buying this DVD, I fully recommend it. It is well worth the $10.

Here's the recipe:

First, you take some fresh Cartoon Network talent ripe for the picking. Second, you take that talent and put together a brand-new hit series where the synopsis is, say, a young and always hungry boy struggling to become a great chef. Next, you take that synopsis and create some original, yet funny-looking characters and the amazing new world for them to live in. Then, you prepare some stories for each of the show's episodes like, for example, how to cook a pot of singing beans, or how one little piece of gum can cause a lot of trouble, or how to get rid of an annoyingly clingy girlfriend. Finally, you add a secret ingredient that tends to tear down the fourth wall. Serve immediately, and enjoy !

And that is what "Chowder" basically is: a little guy with a HUGE appetite. Under the guidance of his respected mentor and master chef Mung Daal, along with his wife Truffles and his assistant Shnitzel, it's never a dull moment in Marzipan City, even if that girl Panini would only leave poor Chowder alone. The DVD has 10 of your fave episodes in a rare widescreen format. And as a bonus, they've peppered in the original storyboard for the classic episode "Chowder's Girlfriend".

So when you have a craving for "Chowder", you know where to look: Cartoon Network. And look out for new episodes of "Chowder" on special Thursday nights called "Har Har Tharsdays".

I really enjoyed this show and was disappointed when it was discontinued. I saw that there were 2 volumes of Chowder, and bought the first assuming it would have at least the first season. Instead it has 5 episodes from the first season, not even the first five in a row, just five randomly selected. What a rip-off, but I guess that's what I get for not reading the description and reviews better. Just another example of marketing greed, I guess. I will be reselling this and waiting for the complete seasons/series to be released. In my opinion, this type of release is one reason piracy is so prevalent. I always try to buy disks of the shows I like, but if they're not available, or ridiculously overpriced, it's tempting to look online for somewhere to download from.
