Animated Atrocities-Christmas (Gumball) by AMX-269 Animated Atrocities-Christmas (Gumball) by AMX-269
I've been a fan of MrEnter for a while now, so I finally decided to take a crack at some of these. And with Christmas quickly coming up, I thought I'd find some Christmas episodes to pick apart.

This episode was my original Gumball Dethroning Moment of Suck episode, before "The Hero" came along. And of course, my main problem with both of these episodes is Nicole "Jackass" Watterson. Yeah, some of her anger in this episode is reasonable; probably any parent isn't going to like keeping a random homeless person in their house. But did that really warrant Nicole nearly ruining Christmas for her kids? And her main problem with Christmas is because of something that happened to her, and because she made such a stupid mistake that I don't think even Richard would have made. And he's supposed to be the "dumb" parent.

I will admit, Brian Blessed sounds perfect as Santa Claus. But other than that, this was one of the first episodes that helped me give Nicole her little nickname. If you want to watch a good Cartoon Network Christmas episode, watch "Holly Jolly Secrets." Watch "A Johnny Bravo Christmas." Heck, even something like "The Fight Before Christmas" (Powerpuff Girls) or the Regular Show Christmas episode. Not this.

Overall, it's a good show. What I don't like is when Nicole acts like a stuck-up jerk, and a lot of times, she doesn't get much comeuppance for her actions. I sort of have the same problem with Pearl from "Steven Universe"; yeah, she does seem to genuinely care for Steven and the other gems very much, but she can be such a snob sometimes that it's very off-putting.

Maybe that's just me. But either way, unbearable know-it-alls are not a favorable character archetype for me.
