Did You Know?

Trivia

A distinctive visual motive is the patterns on the characters' clothing/skin staying the same. The patterns are developed as a full-screen image and then sent to the production house, where the characters are modified to fill the patterns in over the character skin/clothing. With this technique, when a character moves, their patterns do not follow but are displayed as a "static" background. See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, the Cartoon Network logo opens to reveal Chowder dragging a sack of food. He pulls out an O from the "Cartoon" and munches on it like a donut; but as he walks off, an apple drops from the sack, and the logo closes with the apple replacing the O. See more »

Alternate Versions

Some airings of the show had the theme song sung by different singers instead of the show's cast. This included Schnitzel's line being translated as well. See more »

Better than I was expecting
7 August 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I like a lot of Cartoon Network cartoons, and when I heard of Chowder, I was somewhat skeptical. It looked good, but I had heard it was rubbish. Actually, Chowder isn't rubbish at all. It is the sort of show you love or hate, but I love it. It is different I agree, but what's wrong with being different? Nothing.

The animation is colourful and vibrant, and while the character designs may be unusual at first I kept reminding myself it's all part of being different. The music is also great, and the writing is witty and hilarious. The story lines are good as well, as are the characters. Again, they are not for everyone but like the show they are the sort of characters you love or hate. Personally, while they can have their corny and annoying moments I find them endearing. And the voice work is fine.

All in all, different and fun to watch. 9/10 Bethany Cox
