This was pretty good, I especially liked the end, with "Yakkety Sax" and audio by TBC themselves. I also liked the cameo by the rarely-seen Pom Pom, not to mention the Easter Eggs were really good. All in all, a good solid short.
5/5

I found it moderately amusing, but after a 2-week hiatus, I was expecting more. 3 of 5.

I've never understood the assumption that a week-long break automatically means a longer or better toon the next week. It's true, sometimes breaks occur because TBC are working on something big (Workin' on the Game is one case where we actually got to find this out), but frequently, it's just another break. Indeed, when TBC do take a break for other reasons, it might well be a non-toon related thing, such as SBCG4AP was (I think they may have taken breaks to work on DVDs in the past, too). And many of their most substantial toons occur with no break at all; for example, their Halloween toons are always some of the most substantial of the year, and they pretty much always do that one right after a shorter one the week before. Long story short: expecting something big because of a break is probably not going to lead to fulfilled expectation.

I freakin' love the CGNU Theme Song remake! It's so dang funny! This is by far the best cartoon in a while. Can't wait for Sbemail 204!

I just noticed how the kid stuck in Coach's costume is beating at the top of the head. How'd he get up there, and how's he not falling out?

I was kind of expecting something longer, but I was not disappointed. I loved the new CGNU song, the ending, and the easter eggs. XD 5/5

I dunno, maybe the whole concept of more time ....

In reality, it's August and they were all probably on vacation.

It was good, funny the Burgertime reference stood out for me, I laughed at kimchi (unexplainably) and was generally amused.
4/5

Yeah, I'm Korean, so I love kimchi. The reference was so inexplicable that I busted out laughing.
