YMMV / Abra Catastrophe

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: In the opening sequence, Timmy pretends that he's Spider-Man. Almost a decade later, in Ultimate Spider-Man, Spidey is now voiced by the live-action adult Timmy.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Crocker crosses this when he kidnaps and tortures Wanda to use as a source of power.
  • Padding: The whole sequence with Bippy's wish. The real conflict of the special is between Crocker and Timmy, and so the whole Planet of the Apes (1968) parody does nothing but stretch it out to movie-length, and is undone without any lasting effect. All it really does is get Crocker closer to the muffin, which would have happened anyway because he was already in the cafeteria. That said, the sequence does establish that the muffin can do anything, and foreshadows Crocker's own world conquest.
  • What An Idiot:
    • Timmy did make a dumb move by taking the magical muffin to school instead of just wishing for a magical safe or something to keep the muffin safe in. On the other hand, Wanda said that muffin's magic was too powerful to be affected by fairy magic. So, Timmy's options were pretty limited especially with Crocker spying on his every move. The only other option would be to leave it with his parents who really are idiots.
    • But it wouldn't matter if the muffin wouldn't be affected by a magical safe, as the muffin itself wouldn't do anything but sit there. Even if that were a problem, Timmy could just get a non-magical plate from the kitchen.
    • Also, when he finds the muffin in the cafeteria, why didn't he just wish everyone else out of the room until he recovered it? This wouldn't affect the muffin in any way, getting around the "it's unaffected by fairy magic" issue, and he could easily wish for no one to notice or complain, since he's done it before.
