What do you think of the new CHEAT COMMANDOS.

I thought it was great. Not the best, but pretty good.

Don't forget to click THE END in the end for another funny scene at the grocery store.

Funny stuff. Reynold sounds kinda like Strong Sad. This is also the first time the term '(blank) suck(s)!' has ever been used on H*R.com to my knowledge. H*R.com seems to be reverting back to their liberal use of the word 'crap'. 9.75/10. "Next episode, Blue Lazer....NEXT EPISOOOOOODE!"

Hah. "Old Lady Rub".

Blue Lazer is gonna have a coronary one of these days. Needs to take up yoga or something.

Off the top of my head I can think of "english paper" and "dragon".

I liked this; kinda came out of the blue... Crackotage's rhymes were so... ugh. Like in a real cartoon. And the Inspector Gadget-style ending was a nice touch. And what's with the Blue Lazer babies?

That was awesome! I'm glad I looked at this thread! Now I get that "volleyball" sig. But where was Foxface? I wanted to meet her. I guess they couldn't get Missy. We meet Reynold at least. He saved the day! From himself! Now where's my coffee!

I thought this was so clever!

The plot was very likable, and the story had a bunch of layers. This is a funny gag -- I hope they keep this up. I am excited for how good they are getting at animation and storylines. Not only was it funny, but it was very entertaining.

This cartoon almost single-handedly improved my opinion of the Cheat Commandos concept from "pretty amusing" to "absolutely hilarious." Beats the other two Cheat Commandos cartoons by a longshot.

Aren't you glad that those Cheat Commandos are fighting to protect us from Blue Laser's dastardly deeds? I mean, having a barbecue and going shopping on double-coupon day? What's next? Going to the dentist? The exercise gym? Building a sandbox for the twins to play in? Is there no end to their evil!? *Shakes fist*

It floated my little scoop o' ice cream, especially since I was almost resigned to another Monday without new HR. The best points, IMO:
- The choice of grout cleaner as a sale item
- The Blue Lazer commander's twin babies
- Getting to see this side of Reynold
- "There won't BE any more beach volleyball!"
- "I never doubted you were a lady, sir. Ma'am."

It physically made me laugh out loud, which I don't often do if no one else is in the room. But I have a suspicion it would be even funnier if I had watched a lot of GI Joe as a kid.

I loved it! We finally get to see Reynold in the CC show! We learn that Firebert talks just like The Cheat! I've always wanted a full-length toon of the Cheat Commandos! We must rejoice! :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat: :cheat:

Whoot! By far, this is the greatest Cheat Commando adventure yet! We still have yet to see Reinforcements, FlashFight, FoxFace and ripberger, but we're getting closer to a full cast! The only sad thing about this update is now we know they won't touch on Cheat Commandos again for a while now!

But, we FINALLY get another "Big Toon"! Whoot.

Haha, that's funny -- I never thought of it that way. I guess the blue lazer people are really not working with criminal minds.

Those cute little ones were the icing on the cake. I have wathced this three times and I keep finding funny jokes...there's like 300 of them in there. I like when the leader puts up quotation marks. Also...Turning babies into gold? Ruining beach volleyball? Holy Moly. That's possibly the funniest thing I've ever heard.

And I think everyone on this forum can in some way relate to Reynold. Uh, no offense. Mia Culpa.

And so much attention to detail! The glasses on the mop? The thread of grout cleaner? Reynold's internal squabble of making the Cheat Commandos' motto, "Rock and Roll" Instead of the almost-patented "Rock, rock on"?

The comedic timing seems better on every listen.

I defately enjoyed this toon. It wasn't as good (in my opinion) as the other ones, but it was amusing. I especially enjoyed "whta about beach volleyball?!?" and Reynold beating himself up. Every group of friends includes someone like Reynold; the slightly geeky type who can't quite fit in, no matter how hard they try, but they are really cool because of that! Actually, now that I think about it, I think all of my friends are like that... whatever.

I enjoyed the toon, I think that's what this babbling meant. :cheatgrin:

It had its moments, but overall I thought it was just ok. I didn't find myself actually laughing once, but I smiled a few times.

6/10

So how long do you think until Cheat Commandos is made into a Feature like Puppet Stuff, Powered By The Cheat, Strong Bad E-mail, Teen Girl Squad, and Marzipan's Answering Machine? I give it 2 more toons. Or do you think that it's just some 1936 or 20X6 type string of toons?
:20x6:

Best thing that happened to the website since Teeny Tiny Girl Squad. If Cheat Commandos keeps on being this great, hopefully we'll see a Cheat Commandos button on the toons menu remote like I have been hoping!

The only thing that would make Cheat Commandos better is if Foxface were in the Cheat Commandos TV show. I mean, every other Cheat Commando action figure has been in the CC show! Why not her?

No They Haven't! Are you Kidding? Flashfight, Reinforcements, and The guy in red I can name off the top of my head.

That was really sweet!! I liked it when that guy fell down in the background, and the main guy's lack of hands or whatever.

"Whee!"

Actually, they do. In the scene in Cheat Commandos where everyone is marching, look closely and you'll see everyone but Reynold and Foxface.

"FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!" This more than makes up for not having an email on Monday. Heck, it's worth five emails just to see what happens when Blue Laser goes shopping on double coupon day. Was I the only one who found the "Blue Las-Alert" siren sound incredibly funny? Of course, the rest of the toon was comedic gold as well. :mrgreen:

"Reynold's Commandos... let's rock and roll!"
