Moochmaster P. is the sixth episode of the first season of Mr. Meaty.

Plot

Parker is hungry and he tries to get Josh to give him one bite of his sandwich. Josh gives in and Parker eats almost the whole thing, so Josh calls him a moocher. Parker then goes around the mall and takes one bite of everyone's food. Then he comes back and eats a raw burger and a tapeworm soon grows in Parker's stomach and eats the food Parker mooches before Parker can.

Why It Sucks

  1. While the episode it mainly known for it's disgusting and stomach-turning imagery, there's also the fact that Parker is unlikable in the beginning to the middle of the episode when he snacks on:
    • Josh's Meatball Sandwich
    • Doug's donut
    • Ashley's grapes
    • Brittany's burrito.
  2. The title card (Which features a pair of red, glowing eyes peering out of Parker's mouth) looks horrifying and nightmarish. And it does, a good job, in foreshadowing the events to come, to say the least.
  3. The scene involving Parker's saliva is very gross and nauseating to sit through (in an episode already filled with disgusting moments).
  4. The tapeworm (even coming out of Parker’s mouth) scene is very disturbing, and very unfitting in a kids show.
    • Speaking of the tapeworm, it's design is ugly, gross, and pretty creepy as well. Although this is something to be pretty much expected, since making something like a tapeworm look anything but nauseating is next to impossible.
  5. The screaming of the tapeworm can get on your last nerve.
  6. Disturbing Ending: After Josh and Parker capture the tapeworm, an Australian man sees it and wanting it for his zoo and he starts eating it and allowing the tapeworm to get from the inside of his mouth to his digestive system.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. At least Josh was a likable character here, as he helped Parker by getting the tapeworm out of his stomach.
  2. As gross as the ending was, it can actually be considered a decent one if you cut out the man eating the tapeworm. As not only did Josh and Parker got rid of the parasite, but they also got $20 in the process.

Reception

Despite the 8.1/10 rating on IMDb, this episode was heavily panned by many Nickelodeon and CBC viewers, and is considered to be the MOST disturbing episode of Mr. Meaty. And just as disturbing, if not more so, than Parkerina.
