Trivia

Panini originally had an outfit which only revealed her face (which was to have pointy ears), and was going to bully Chowder in a manner similar to Rugrats (1990)'s Angelica Pickles. But C.H. Greenblatt disliked unctuous obnoxious characters like Angelica, and so decided to make Panini cuter and sweeter: he made the pointy ears bunny ears, and made her have a crush on Chowder; since Chowder is not old enough for girls, Greenblatt felt this would make the romance much funnier.

Proof that good cartoons still exist!
17 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a junior in high school, and I have been raised on cartoons. I was raised with great shows such as Ed Edd n Eddy, Rocko's Modern Life, Dexter's Laboratory, Courage, and Johnny Bravo. However, I have come to find that today's cartoons are awful. I will sometimes check out Cartoon Network to see what is playing, and I ended up with horrible dribble such as George of the Jungle, Camp Lazlo, Ben 10, Flapjack, and Johnny Test. However, my faith was resurrected when I happened to come across an interesting new show called Chowder...

Let me just say that Chowder is AWESOME! I won't tell you much about it so you can see for yourself, but let me tell you that this is a completely original and hilarious cartoon. I laugh a lot whenever I watch it. The show has an almost psychedelic element to it, which makes it fun to watch. The show has some great characters, interesting plot lines, great voices, and unique animation. I love everything about it. The story revolves around food (the main character is a chef's apprentice.) Everyone on the show has some kind of food for a name, which include Chowder, Mung-Daal, Shnitzel, Truffles, Penneni, Endive, Gorgonzola, Gespatcho, Chestnut, and Reuben. The humor is usually original and is sometimes completely twisted. Half the time I forget that the show was made for kids, because the humor can be truly appreciated by adults. It's just a great show overall.

If you feel that good 'ol cartoons are dead, this show is definitely worth a look. Who knows, maybe you'll change your mind about cartoons...
