The BFFs is the forty-third episode of season six of The Amazing World of Gumball.

Plot

When Gumball's old BFF Fuzzy turns up on his doorstep, Darwin struggles to accept that there was someone before him and fails to contain his jealousy.

Bad Qualities

  1. This episode is arguably a worse rehash of The Bros, as both episodes revolve around Darwin becoming jealous of Gumball because he cares a lot about someone else and he thinks that Gumball will no longer care about him. This also contradicts the elements of the aforementioned episode as in the ending Darwin learned that Gumball loves Darwin and will always love him no matter what situation it is.
  2. Fuzzy despite being decent in the first half of the episode, becomes unlikable in the second half as he tries to kidnap Gumball and force him to be with him for the rest of his life, just because they were separated.
  3. Many of the jokes and scenes in this episode are only present to waste time. For example, Darwin constantly saying he doesn’t give a darn about Gumball and Fuzzy’s friendship gets annoying very fast, Darwin makes a ton of faces and when he opens the door to fuzzy and the scene of the walk to Fuzzy’s house drags on for too long.
  4. The episode’s pacing is quite bad, it changes scenes left and right, particularly for the walk scene.
    • Speaking of which the walk scene is the worst part of the episode where Fuzzy doesn't care about Gumball suffering
  5. Rushed Ending: Fuzzy’s friend Hank appears out of nowhere and takes him away, then Gumball and Darwin walk away to get tacos.
  6. Darwin is also quite unlikeable for most of the episode since he refuses to give Fuzzy a chance before knowing any bad things about him.
  7. Despite being the second last episode of the series, it is completely pointless, since Fuzzy isn’t ever mentioned again, and (along with "The Inquisition") it ended the series on a sour note.

Good Qualities

  1. Gumball is likable since he is nice to Fuzzy at the start and tells Darwin he will always care about him.
    • Darwin is likable towards the end since he saves Gumball from Fuzzy.
  2. Some jokes are good, like Richard’s massage chair or the line "BFFFFFFFFF" from Darwin.
  3. The Terminator homage from Fuzzy is quite funny and a creative take on Furbys.
