The show that single-handedly redeemed Cartoon Network. Created by CH Greenblatt (aka Fred Fredburger), it takes place in the wildly colorful Marzipan City, featuring all kinds of imaginative creatures, all named after food. The main character, Chowder, is a purple cat-bear-rabbit-thing, who is an apprentice for Chef Mung Daal, a strange blue man. There's also Shnitzel, a big rock monster who only says "radda" but is still cool in some way. The whole show is like an acid trip, and features humor that appeals to children AND adults.
Chowder is one of the best recently created cartoons.
