Recap / Fanboy And Chum Chum S 1 E 18 Moppy Dearest

Go To

Fanboy makes a mop girlfriend for the school dance, which becomes a surefire head turner.


  • Crush Filter: Moppy gets one when Fanboy is fawning over her, followed by a sadder version when he thinks she dumped on him.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: Chum Chum was right about having a cousin.
  • Funny Background Event:
    • While Fanboy is talking about Muk Muk, she can be seen chasing Cher behind him.
    • As Fanboy and Moppy arrive at the dance, while some kid pairs are holding hands as if they had dates too, Kyle is alone and leaning against the lockers, arms folded.

  • Idiosyncratic Wipes: Man-Artica on guitar provides the scene transition twice, first to the boys dressing up, then to the outside of the school.
  • Jump Cut: While the boys are talking about Muk Muk, the scene behind them changes from the snack cart to the stage in between lines.
  • Irony: Even though it's a school dance, nobody was seen dancing, even at Man-Arctica's concert.
  • Photo Montage: Fanboy and Moppy pose for these before heading to the school.
  • Pokémon Speak: Muk Muk only speaks with use of her name.
  • Puppy-Dog Eyes: Fanboy has these upon seeing Moppy arrive at the top of the staircase.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Uncanny Family Resemblance: Muk Muk looks exactly like his cousin Chum Chum, but with pigtails.
  • The Voiceless:
    • Kyle is seen a lot but doesn't speak.
    • Yo doesn’t speak either, but her friend Lupe does.
