"Love Loaf" is the twelfth episode of the first season of Breadwinners.

Synopsis

SwaySway and Buhdeuce find a "love loaf", a magical loaf of bread that makes anyone who eats it fall in love with the first person they see. SwaySway wants to use it to get his crush, Jenny Quackles, to fall in love with him, but she is away at an all-girls summer camp. The Breadwinners level up to girly ducks to get into the camp, only for their attempts to be foiled by the three boy-hating camp counselors.

Why It's Not Lovely, and is Loaf-some

  1. The plot is very disturbing for a children's cartoon, as SwaySway attempts to force his crush, Jenny Quackles, to eat a love loaf so she falls in love with him, which can be seen as a date rape drug; on top of that, Jenny is a lot younger than SwaySway (though her appearance is an adult duck than a duckling), so the latter's actions could easily be considered pedophilia.
    • On the topic of Jenny, she is rather disgusting for a love interest, as she eats anything off of the ground and from the trash; because of this, it is questionable as to why SwaySway even has a crush on her, aside from presumably her beauty.
    • What makes this episode even creepier and more disturbing is that rape (or forced romantic pursuits) is a common mating behavior among ducks in real life.
    • The Love Loaf itself is just a love drug in the disguise of bread, which is also disturbing as it depicts drugging someone secretly.
  2. It is also far too inappropriate for a children's cartoon, as its overall concept makes it seem more like something from an adult cartoon-like Ren & Stimpy "Adult Party Cartoon" or something. It features, as mentioned before, SwaySway attempting to force his crush to eat the equivalent of a love drug, which, as stated, could be considered pedophilia. The end of the episode also has a reference to what is implied to be rape as both SwaySway and Buhdeuce get romantically pursued against their will by the love-struck camp counselors who ate the love loaf they confiscated from them in an extremely aggressive fashion to the point where the two are stripped down to only their underwear, implying something very bad.
  3. SwaySway's song about Jenny Quackles, though nice to hear, is laughably stupid; Buhdeuce's song (at the campfire) of how pretty he is isn't any better either.
  4. It also has a rather nonsensical and creepy subplot in which Buhdeuce... falls in love with himself after accidentally eating part of the love loaf; there is even a running gag of him talking to himself and SwaySway assuming that Buhdeuce is talking to him.
  5. Though probably unintentional, the episode conveys a rather cruel and dangerous message to children, that "drugging someone will make them fall in love with you", which also encourages sexual harassment.
  6. SwaySway and Buhdeuce disguising as female ducks to sneak into the camp becomes awkward very quickly.
  7. Plot Hole: Both SwaySway and Buhdeuce's disguises as girls are blown all because of the latter's farts, and how are farts being stereotyped as "ungirly" by the camp counselors. Girls can pass gas too!
  8. SwaySway and Buhdeuce's injuries as the result of being romantically forced against their will by the lovestruck camp counselors at the ending is disturbing to look at for a younger audience (despise this is some karma for them, making them understand how bad the Love Loaf is).
  9. Laziness: Along with lazy flash animation and its immature and disturbing story, it rehashes "Jenny Quackles" from the pilot, which SwaySway wasn't even in love with, despite that both "Jenny Quackles" in both this episode and the pilot are two completely different characters due to them having drastically different appearances, which just shows how the animators are too lazy to find a proper stock photo of a duck for their Jenny Quackles character in this episode.
  10. Overall, this episode REALLY shows how godawful the show as an entirety is and may ruin someone's chances of being a fan of it...although anyone wouldn't be a fan of it anyway considering some of its other episodes.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Good Ending: SwaySway fails to make Jenny Quackles fall in love with him in the end, and after his run-in with the camp counselors, he learns that the Love Loaf is bad news. The bread is also NEVER used again in the entire series.
  2. The Love Loaf Madness movie that the Breadmaker shows the duo is kinda funny, although somewhat dumb.

Reception

The episode was universally panned by critics and audiences alike due to the infamous rape jokes as well as the creepy, pedophilic romantic relationship between SwaySway and Jenny Quackles. It and its sister episode, Beach Day of Horror (which is no better than this) currently have a 3.1/10 on IMDb.
