"Grubble Gum" is the fifth episode in the first season of Chowder. It is the fifth episode overall.
Chowder is forced to swallow his new gum before Truffles finds out he didn't buy enough to share. Soon all of Marzipan City ends up in a very sticky situation.
Chowder eats a lot of Grubble Gum at the Grubble Gum shop (and hears some faint screaming) and on the way back to his cooking class but forgets to share with Truffles who loves Grubble Gum so much. He swallowed the gum to hide it from Truffles and Chowder got him self is a sticky situation (pun intended) when he got stuck with everybody in the world. At the end, another Chowder (the real Chowder) eats the Grubble Gum including everybody in the world repeating the episodes.
- This is the first instance of damage to Mung's nose.
- This episode breaks the fourth wall when the gang tears off some of the background.
- The scream vendor states that a scream costs one dollar. However, the residents of Marzipan City commonly use a native currency called "dollaps."
- The end of the episode, where the huge grubble gum ball rolls over everything, is a reference to the Playstation 2 game, Katamari Damacy.
- This includes the music playing in the background during this scene, which sounds like the song "Katamari on the Rocks", also a reference the game Katamari Damacy.
- The giant Grubble Gum ball also looks similar to a ball of gum called "Gummy" from a Spongebob Squarepants episode called "Gift Of Gum", even when the sounds of the Grubble Gum was earlier taken by Nickelodeon for that series, to having "Gummy's" sounds being the same as in the entire series. This is more noticeable in 2008 prints.
- When Chowder eats the Grubble gum at the end, you can here Mung and Chowder scream.
- Grubble gum is a pun on bubble gum.
- The whole ball of gum shouldn't of covered the world since there was a guy holding up the city.
- How did Chowder, Mung, and Shnitzel get to a freezing place?
