Boy am I glad I almost fell asleep reading my history text and came to check out the interweb.

This toon was a bit violent, but still funny. The ultra-subtle Stiny ref/pun was really clever actually.

"Hey guys" again, and Gunhaver's name is.. Charles? Like Xavier or something?

"Someone" is gonna have to tip my parents off to ambrosia salad for Thursday. That sounds good. And at least the EMP from the nuclear device probably made Reynold's brother's horrible music turn off :p

I had a shot at starting the wiki page this time! But... there's so much info on a HRWiki page I got all confused and turned around. By the time I figured anything out, someone else did it. Ah well.

This one... high C/low B area.

Ahaha, the scene with Reynold's brother cracked me up. "NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!" As well as the random little orphan Cheat popping up out of nowhere (reminds me of the "Can I be the orphan?" line from No Hands On Deck).

Ripberger actually talked! I like his voice, even if he did only say like four words. I like how "Hey guys" is apparently the only thing Reinforcements ever says. :P

Omg... "Li'l Stiney"... XD

XD I loved Reynold's brother. :p

And I love the comment to Ripberger, "Ripberger, you made it! I thought you were only available for a limited time with three proofs of purchase!"

The Cheat Commandos always crack me up. This particular cartoon was both hilarious, and oddly cute. This is what the holidays are all about: love and goodwill to thy fellow the Cheat.

:cheatgrin:

I hope to see Reynold's brother in the future.

Not bad, though I'm kind of confused about the whole fork-in-eye bit. Blood? In a children's show?
Anyone notice how the singer of "No one understands me" sounds suspiciously like Larry Palaroncini?
Gunhaver: Gobble Gobble! You're in trouble!
Fightgar: Hey, that's not bad!

I'm satisfied after waiting all Monday for this to be up, and finding out it would be postponed.

A bit corny, in my opinion. With the happiness and stuff.

At least they covered it up with that fork.

Oh yeah, an Oliver Smidgen action toy. Raise da roof.

That was a great toon. I loved nearly all of it, especially the Stiny reference on the piano. But the greatest quote of the entire toon was:

'GUNHAVER! You actually HAVE A GUN!'
Priceless :F

Pretty good. I too liked the part with Reynold's brother. And Ripberger, I liked him to. :-D

When I came home today cold from waiting for my mom for 40 minutes, I was really surprised when I saw a holiday 'toon. Even better was that it was Cheat Commandos related. I don't know what I don't like about this cartoon, since everything after waiting in the cold is better. ;)

But, it still gets a 9/10. Just misses something.

Ah, a Cheat Commandos Thanksgiving special! Now they need them for the other major holidays, like Halloween, the Fourth of July, and Chri... I mean, Decemberween. :D

Anyway, that was entertaining. Count me in as a fan of the line "Gunhaver! You actually have a gun!". I also liked the Green Helmets, the first appearance of Ripberger (everything's better with ninjas in it!), and the random orphan asking Gunhaver to play a song.

Finally, a new Cheat Commandos toon! I especially liked the refences to Steinway pianos and Trek's red shirts. Reynold's emo brother was just priceless.

the fork-in-the-eye was a little much, but other than that, it was my favorite cheat comando's yet!

My favorite part was definitely the whiny emo type music. "NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE UNDERSTANDS ME!!!!!!!!!!" XD

This was a great toon, but when I saw the Reynold's emo brother, that solidified the win right there for me.

Best Parts:
- Renyold's Emo Brother
- "Gunhaver! You actually have a gun!"
- The Incredible Floating Lime

Finally, the grand return of the Cheat Commandos!

p.s. Notice how I sneaked in a YTMND I just made about the lime goofup

Dude, this toon rocked. The blood was a bit much but Renolds brother was extremly funny. Plus, Gunhaver ACCTUALY HOLDING HIS GUN was great. 9/10

Um, I've replaid the lime scene 50 times, and I never see Crackotage lower his arm after showing the lime... Weird.

The thing that cracked meup the most was the title. Not let us give thanks... let us give... TANKS!!! Other favorites were "Sorry Blue Laser, the only thanks you'll be giving is getting shot by us with our bullet-shooting guns!" and, of course, "Gunhaver! You actually have a gun!"

Well, the good news is that TBC said somewhere (a random interview) that they love doing Cheat Commandos things. So I'm sure we'll be getting plenty more Cheat Commando stuff in the future. It needs its own section on the remote. :eekdance:

This particular toon... I don't think I enjoyed it quite as much as the last two Cheat Commando toons, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I still liked it a lot.

My favorite part was probably Gunhaver bursting out of the turkey. I mean, I knew he was gonna barge in, but I didn't expect that. I also really liked "You actually have a gun!" and everything related to the Greenhelmets. Poor Greenhelmets.

The fork in the eye sort of turned me off. It was gory. I mean, I'm fine with watching heads being sliced open in Heroes, but here... it seems very weird. Although not enough to make me hate the toon in any way.

That was great. Loved Reynold's brother. That music sounds like something I would listen to, since I really love whiny emo music.

I also liked how the Blue Laser Commander threw a fork in one of his lackeys' eyes because he was tired of not being able to tell them apart. And the random orphan The Cheat.

That emo scene stole my heart, great toon. 'Bout time for a new Cheat Commandos anyways!

So, there's a truce between the Cheat Commandos and Blue Laser on Thanksgiving, eh? Kinda reminds me of Labor Day, when the Homestarmy forbids anyone to work.

Heh, that was great. I love Cheat Commandos. Didn't think they were going to show the fork in that guy's eye with blood coming out =p

Great toon. My favorite part has got to be Gunhaver bursting out of the turkey. Image

I actually liked every minute of that toon. Really, I did. I must say that Matt-Chap never ceases to find new voices. I mean, if you ever ask him to imitate someone, like Bill Clinton, he probably wouldn't mind trying it. Other than that, 100%. Gotta love that voice of BL Commander.

Strange. I still see it. Frame 1703.

:) You said it. Matt's a regular Mel Blanc, "the Man of 1000 Voices".
