Good to see our favorite voice actor (besides Matt and Missy) make another appearance.

I like the convaluted measures that the organisation has to make to support these creatures. And them saying $1 isn't good enough, lol. Interesting how there was some continuity with this one.
And yeah, a good un, but not a great un. Good 'attack' on charity things, heh.

I give it a five out of five. In my opinion this is one of the funniest toons on the site.

Oh god. Crack had me laughing out loud from the beginning, but I had to bring it up to a 5/5 after the elaborate method of obtaining firearms.

Every little bit of this was simply hilarious. "I said several limes! This is two limes!"

Freaking hilarious! Every time the film cut and something about Crack had changed, I laughed. And the elaborate mehtod for getting guns was awesome.

It was good, but I don't think that Crack Stuntman will ever crack me up like Homestar and Strongbad.

I never exactly got PFP when it was first mentioned in http://hrwiki.org/index.php/Marzipans_Answering_Machine_Version_14.2 but now that they explained it, it was a funny toon and a great way to celebrate earth day.

SINGLE GREATEST UPDATE OF 2009.
Seriously, that was amazing. Makes me want one o' those Pistols for Pandas shirts now. 6/5

Best Moments:
"Please take me back!"
"We laugh at, cuz, like, what good's a dollar gonna do?
And.... just about every other second.

hahaha (not lol. 'lol,' is like the 'cool' of the internet, a slang term that will never go out. But I'm going to be pretentiously cool by pretending it's passe.)
I love Crack Stuntman.

Boring. This was confusing and/or stupid. Crack Stuntman is one of the worst characters IMO.

Probably as good as a Crack Stuntoon is ever going to get for me. It gets a 3.4 for some of the funny lines.

But, shouldn't this technically be a holiday toon?

Yeah, I'm not a Crack fan, but this was pretty funny, particularly the dig at Earth Day.

5/5, simply because they make a point that how much people donate isn't enough. Even with the 5 bucks (another reference to Homstarmy? Did anyone see that other than me?) they have to buy a ton of cereal and steal a school computer just to buy the guns. And of how hypocritical Crack is at the end. LOL!!!!

I've noticed lately that HR is one of the few places that affectively satirizes the youth culture from the inside. There's certainly lots of low-hanging fruit in evironmentalism, pretentious charities, etc., but lots of comedians don't make fun of them out of reverence for their missions. Not so TBC. Their juvenile little flash cartoon shows more maturity and sophistication in such matters than most of what passes for serious political debate elsewhere.

Yet another filler... but a good one. I love his completely unrealistic method of PFP!
Kinda wish they didn't slam Earth Day, tho.
4/5

4/5, almost entirely because I hate Crack Stuntman as a character. If this was Strong Bad doing all of this, it would've been 5/5.

This one was great! While I never am a big fan of the toons that don't feature the 12 main characters, they still can get quite funny. I wasn't sure if we would ever see Crack Stuntman again after The Next Epi-Snowed.

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.

As for the toon itself, I loved it. I loved the jab at those make-you-feel-like-you're-helping-without-actually-doing-anything-charities, the overall shiftiness of the organization, the ridiculous method of actually getting the guns, and Crack Stuntman generally being Crack Stuntman were all great.

Didn't laugh a whole lot the first time... retrying.

Ummm... huh? Wait... nope, I got nothing. I found this one to be kind of blah, which is kind of surprising considering Crack is in it. Maybe 'cause I'm tired, idk. It didn't really even make me laugh a little, so I'm giving this a 2/5.

I usually find Crack Stuntman pretty amusing, and I really enjoyed the toon. Far better than "The Next Epi-Snowed", which I felt really seemed like a big shift in Crack's character. "Pistols for Pandas" really did a good job of bridging that gap, treading the line between amusing and obnoxious.

Ole97Dan, I have to agree. TBC does an excellent job of satirizing current issues and culture, without feeling like they're picking a side or preaching. They manage to ridicule the extremes without suggesting that those extremes are representative of the whole. Their work has a sense of skepticism, rather than aggression.

What has happened to my beloved Cheat Commandoes? Will I never see them as a three-wall cartoon again? Can I have at least five consecutive lines that don't refer to Crack Stuntman? They've been reduced to an easter egg in a supposedly Commandoes toon, for crying out loud!

I might re-write this once I conquer my Stuntman bias, but for now I'll have to give it a one.

The introduction was the closest Crack Stuntman has ever gotten to funny, but it was pretty close. I hope PBTC gets its audience back soon.
