It was alright. I'm not a big fan of Crack Stuntman, though. I liked the Cheat Commandos as a standalone series and find his humanity unfitting for the website. I did like his convoluted method of acquiring guns, though.

Seems like this toon is one of those 'you love it or you hate it' kind of toons.

I laughed a few times during the main portion of the toon. But the easter egg was disappointing. You mean we're not going to get a new voice for Gunhaver?

This is one of my favourite toons simply because I did about 95% of the transcript, and a fair bit of the other info on the page! (This is a big achievement for me)

For once I'm not going to be too critial of the new toon; I really liked it. It seemed like the best toon we've had since "4 gregs" in febuary (though donut unto others wasn't bad). "But I'm still get payed, right?" I just love the concept of giving pistols to pandas, and also the elaborate scheme to get the guns. Cereal packets? Stealing from schools that which you just donated? Also, I never really understood what earth day is, so I didn't really get the whole "making you parents feel guilty about their cars" thing.

That made the whole cartoon...and the slam was total truth.

Good, but it's hypocritical of TBC to sell "Earth Day Tote Bags" if they are going to do so.

GOOD PARTS

Cheat Commandos
The mention of Earth Day


I agree that Strong Bad would've made this a whole lot funnier. I've never liked Crack Stuntman, and probably never will.

Since when was one line in a cartoon viable grounds to say that "TBC hates the environment?"

Especially considering it's Crack Stuntman, one of the least sympathetic characters on the site, making the comment. Keep in mind he also condoned thievery in the exact same short. Also, it's a cartoon.

I don't think it's hypocritical to make bags for Earth Day while at the same time poking some light-hearted fun at it. Remember, that's all this is, a little light-hearted ribbing, not biting satire.

Yeah, it's like, it's Crack Stuntman, one of the biggest jerks on the site (even though he was kind of right).

This is one of my favorite toons. I love how they laugh at you for only donating a dollar. Something tells me that's what most organizations do when they only find a dollar in the envelope you sent them. I also agree with Crack's point of view about Earth Day.

Watched it again. A few cute quirks, but nothing hilarious. 2/5

What's wrong with Crack Stuntman? I mean, he's not really my favorite character or anything, but I don't see why some people find him so unbearable.


First he is the only few Human Like characters, however his personality is cartoonist and 1 dimensional.
Second he reminds us of the guy you always hated in school, who always though he was so cool.
Third he is just a jerk and see him getting his job back, or getting a boat load of money is just uncouth.

It was pretty good. It made me chuckle a few times, and I enjoyed the convoluted way of getting the pistols, but, overall, I found it kind of "...eh."

3/5

Um, wouldn't it be much simpler to save the 5 dollars and buy pistols with that? Box tops are only worth 10 cents each, and a lot of money is wasted... :rolleyes:
