- The Froggy Apple Crumple Thumpkin / Chowder's Girlfriend
- Grubble Gum / The Cinnamini Monster
- Certifrycation Class / The Sing Beans

"Cartoon Network's new series Chowder is the best cartoon since SpongeBob SquarePants (which is funny because this show is from one of SpongeBob's creators). This DVD will turn out to be a great one!
From sources, the DVD is suposed to contain ten episodes from the series (whether that means 2 shorts = 1 episode or 1 sort is considered as one episode is unknown). Along with Total Drama Island, Chowder is one of the better cartoons out there (another good animated show is Skunk Fu!).
Chowder is full of zany and entertaining characters. Mung Daal, Chowder's teacher in the art of food; Truffles, Mung's fairy wife; Ms. Endive, Mung's arch nemesis; Shnitzel, Mung's rock monster assistent; Panini, Chowder's girlfriend (even though he doesn't see it that way!); and many many more funny characters.
My edvice, buy the DVD of Chowder Vol. One. It's worth the money and it is a great show. Buy and enjoy this series. Trust me, you'll have a good time."
Great Cartoon-Skimpy DVD

"I love Chowder. but this is too little content for the price.
This DVD does not contain half of Season 1. It contains one fourth of Season 1. There were 20 episodes containing 38 cartoons (Two were double length). This DVD contains 10 of the 38 cartoons as five episodes. The description above says 10 episodes when it is actually ten cartoons. The widescreen picture is beautiful, and the cartoons are grouped into two cartoon episodes (just like on TV) so that you get to see all of the clever and funny openings and closing credits. The menus are well done, and include a "Play All" option. But this is gonna cost over $[...]bucks for the first season IF they all come out on DVD!?!"
Have Your Chowder, and Eat It, Too !

"Here's the recipe:
First, you take some fresh Cartoon Network talent ripe for the picking. Second, you take that talent and put together a brand-new hit series where the synopsis is, say, a young and always hungry boy struggling to become a great chef. Next, you take that synopsis and create some original, yet funny-looking characters and the amazing new world for them to live in. Then, you prepare some stories for each of the show's episodes like, for example, how to cook a pot of singing beans, or how one little piece of gum can cause a lot of trouble, or how to get rid of an annoyingly clingy girlfriend. Finally, you add a secret ingredient that tends to tear down the fourth wall. Serve immediately, and enjoy !
And that is what "Chowder" basically is: a little guy with a HUGE appetite. Under the guidance of his respected mentor and master chef Mung Daal, along with his wife Truffles and his assistant Shnitzel, it's never a dull moment in Marzipan City, even if that girl Panini would only leave poor Chowder alone. The DVD has 10 of your fave episodes in a rare widescreen format. And as a bonus, they've peppered in the original storyboard for the classic episode "Chowder's Girlfriend".
So when you have a craving for "Chowder", you know where to look: Cartoon Network. And look out for new episodes of "Chowder" on special Thursday nights called "Har Har Tharsdays"."
