Chowder: Sing Beans

Mung Daal’s Catering has been commissioned to cook a very important dish: a bunch of sing beans. These beans are scheduled to perform in one of Marzipan City’s theaters, but what makes the process so difficult is that the dish requires those who are cooking it to stay up all night, as the temperature needs to be kept at the right level. In order to make the long hours seem more entertaining, Mung Daal, Shnitzel and Chowder decide to all stay up together, though things don’t go as they had planned.

Recap

Mung Daal Catering had just been commissioned to prepare some sing beans, so that they could perform at a local theater. Mung Daal explained to Chowder that sing beans are a musical food, as they can sing songs depending on how well they are cooked. Mung Daal took the sing beans and extracted them into a pot; Chowder then spat out various musical instruments, which Mung Daal and Shnitzel played, so that the music could fall into the pot and serve as ingredients. After the music was added, Mung Daal reached into Chowder’s mouth and pulled out some flava, which looked like a golden clock, as the dish required some flava in order to cook properly...

    Episode Quotes
    Depressed Theater Manager: Listen, I need these cooked before tomorrow night’s show. I, I mean you can do that, can’t you? You guys won’t let me down, will you? Will you? I mean, I can’t handle any more disappointment in my life!
    Mung Daal: Not to worry, my fine sir. We at the Mung Daal Catering Company are nothing if not professionals.
    (Chowder is seen eating one of the stage curtains, so Mung Daal walks towards him)
    Mung Daal: (angrily) Knock it off!

    Chowder: What is it, Mung? What’s in there? Is it something yummy?!
    Mung Daal: We have been commissioned to make sing beans!
    Chowder: Sing beans?! Wow!
    Shnitzel: Radda radda, radda radda radda.
    Mung Daal: No, I said “sing beans”, not “tooty booty beans”.
    Truffles: Tooty booty beans?! Oh, not again! You remember what happened last time you made tooty booty beans?
    (Mung Daal remembers being chased by an angry mob)
    Mung Daal: And to think that the day began so hilarious, it ended very, very badly.

    Mung Daal: Well, as the name implied, sing beans are a musical food. The better you cook them, the better they sing when you serve them.
    Chowder: If I sing too, will that help them cook better?
    Mung Daal: No, Chowder, I don’t think…
    Chowder: (singing) Beans, beans, beans. Green, yellow and brown. Beans, beans, beans. I gobble all of them down. Toot, toot, toot. After I eat the beans. Toot, toot, toot. I can watch sweet dreams. Beans, beans beans…

    Mung Daal: What’s the difference between chopped beef and pea soup? Wait for it! Wait for it! Everyone can chop beef, but no one can pea soup! Huh? Huh?
    (Chowder stops laughing and both he and Shnitzel stare at Mung Daal in boredom)

    Mung Daal: Your turn, Shnitzel.
    Shnitzel: Radda radda radda, radda radda.
    Mung Daal: Oh, I’m sure it’s perfectly fine to tell around small children. Go on! Go on!
    Shnitzel: Radda. Radda, radda radda radda! Radda radda radda, radda radda radda, radda radda radda radda!
    Mung Daal: Oh my shole! Shnitzel, you naughty, naughty boy! You! Whew!
    Chowder: I don’t understand. So why did…
    Mung Daal: Ah! We’ll talk about it later! When you’re older!
    Chowder: But!
    Mung Daal: When you’re older!

    Chowder: So, a duck walked into a restaurant. Wait, I think it was a hyena. Definitely a hyena. No, no, a duck. So, a duck walks into a restaurant and orders a steak, or was it spaghetti? No, that doesn’t sound right. Maybe it wasn’t even food he ordered. Could’a just walked in there to get some water. I don’t know. Let’s just say it was steak. So, get this! The hyena says to the waiter: put it on my bill! Wait, no, it was a duck! You know what? Let me start all over.
    (Mung Daal and Shnitzel have fell asleep during his very long joke)

    Sing Beans: (singing) Everyone’s got a song inside, waiting to be free! The beans are here to show the way, come on and follow me! Everyone’s got a song inside, waiting to be free!
    (The beans start to run away, singing)
    Chowder: Wait, come back!
    Sing Beans: The beans are here to show the way, come on and follow me! So flap your gums and move your lips, let me here you shout!
    Sing Bean #4: Let me here you shout!
    Sing Beans: Release that song you have inside! That’s what it’s all about! Everyone’s got a song inside, waiting to be free! The beans are here to show the way, come on and follow me! Everyone’s got a song inside, waiting to be free! The beans are here to show the way, come on and follow me! So flap your gums and move your lips, let me here you shout!

    Episode Goofs
    Mung Daal had four pods of sing beans. He extracted one of them into the pot, and three others were on the ground beside the pot. However, in the next scene, the three pods on the ground were missing.

    Only ten sing beans were put inside of the pot, but when Chowder looked inside of the pot, twelve beans were there. Later on, sixteen beans were seen in the pot, and when they jumped out of the pot, there were thirty-seven beans.



    Cultural References
    Mung Daal: Ah, there it is! We can’t forget a little bit of flava!

    When Mung Daal adds flava to the pot of sing beans, it’s in the form of a giant necklace that has a clock attached at the bottom. This is a reference to Flavor Flav, the hype man who is most well known for his recent television program, Flavor of Love.

    Visual: The moon moves towards the sun with its mouth opening and closing, while sound effects play as it moves closer to the sun. It ultimately eats the sun and replaces it, making it nighttime.

    The moon was meant to resemble Pac-Man, the titular character of the hit 1980s game of the same name. The sound effects that were being played were meant to resemble those found in the game, while the sun was meant to resemble one of the game’s power pellets.
