Title Image Release Date Why It's Not on the List
The Refund
Refund (13)
August 15, 2011 "Honestly, I was just as happy to see Larry employed and well again. I hope he and his girlfriend made up. Though, the boys really should have recieved a refund for that game. It kind of annoyed me that they accepted the terrible discount at the end. The jokes were honestly fine in this one; I didn't get why people don't like it."

Dishonorable Mentions

Title Image Release Date Why It's Not on the List
The Crew
August 13, 2015 "Gumball and Darwin try to become seniors to be part of a social group, and... that's it, really. Most of the episode just drags out like a sack of beans on a cobblestone road. It's mostly just making fun of seniors. It's not particularly funny, insightful, or interesting; it's just cynical."
The Ex
Gumball TheEx 00014
March 1, 2017 "This one basically parodies a difficult breakup, except it's about a seething hatred, instead of love. Ugh! We're basically just continually watching Gumball try to annoy his nemisis, Rob, while ignoring his girlfriend, Penny. These kind of lousy episodes pop up on Gumball occasionally, where it's just Gumball continually pushing and pushing an innocent person until they snap in frustration."
The Limit
Nicole limit cans
August 28, 2013 "The Limit was recommended quite a lot by viewers, but I was mixed on it. Nicole gets continually bugged by everyone at the store for candy until she finally snaps. It's not mean-spirited  or insulting or anything, I was meh on it."
The Date
Peanut Dying Cat
November 28, 2011 "Gumball turns himself into a jerk in the name of going on a date with Penny. I guess we're meant to consider it cute just how misinformed and new Gumball is to social situations, but it just comes off as awkward at some of the uncomfortable things he does when he sees Penny's family; destroying a child's last memory of their pet is a bit much. And the other part that bugs me about this episode is, well, this [The picture that is shown on the left]."
