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.
