Catscratch Wiki

Mall-Adjusted is the second segment of the fourteenth episode of Catscratch.


Late into the night, Gordon is dreaming of eating a wide variety of food (as usual) until his slumber is interrupted by Waffle excitedly jumping on his bed. Waffle says he wants to play, but Gordon can't as it is the middle of the night. Gordon tells him to play with Mr. Blik instead, but that, of course, doesn't play out too well. Mr. Blik shouts "NO" at him when asked and throws him out of the room. Bored out of his mind, Waffle starts channel surfing through multiple TV stations. One of the stations is broadcasting a commercial for priceless vases. Waffle starts raising the remote to change the channel again, until the vases are said to be wrapped in state-of-the-art bubble wrap. Waffle's pupils expand at the sight of it, and he purchases millions by the morning.

That morning, Waffle’s brothers wake up and exit their rooms, only to step in the bubble wrap that is now strewn all over the house. Blik holds on to the door frame while Gordon jumps to the chandelier, and they know exactly who’s responsible. Waffle is busy jumping around in all the bubble wrap while Mr. Blik and Gordon ask where it all came from. Waffle points them to the vases outside, and the two are stunned at how many there are. The whole front yard was covered in the expensive vases. Gordon asks Waffle how much of the fortune he used to make such a purchase, to which a repo crew bust into the home, confirming that Waffle spent all of it on those vases (specifically for the bubble wrap enclosing them.) The repo men start ridding the mansion of all the possessions inside and they had to throw stuff away. Blik asks why they’re taking all of their stuff and throwing away a lot of their stuff and he’s said that it no longer belongs to them, and the cats are officially broken as of that moment. They even take Waffle’s newts which were sold and Hovis had to load up what he could take with him in suitcases. The cats are then promptly tossed outside the house and were removed from their home. The Chumpy Chump Brothers spot the three and scoff at them, stating that they’re broke, and they still stink. Blik and Waffle are in a panic while Waffle laments over his newts. Gordon, however, keeps a level head about the situation, knowing they’ve seen through worse. Gordon suggests that they get out there and do hard labor, to which Mr. Blik is outraged. The reaction is shared by the fellow homeless folks, one saying “That’s the spirit, brother.” Blik sees that that’ll be their crowd if they don’t do any work, so he gives in and joins in the job hunt.

They visit the Job Finderz office and try to think of what they’re skilled at. They ponder and Waffle makes some arm pit noises. After a while, they are suggested to trying some jobs at the mall. At the mall, they first try out a clothes store, where Blik and Waffle are dolling up some mannequins. A plus-sized woman requests a dress in her size, and Gordon suggests sewing two of the same dress together. This comes across as a diss to the woman and she slaps him across the store, and he crashes into that mannequin that Blik and Waffle were working on. With that, they get fired. The cats then get fired again from almost every available job at the mall. The cats then once again getting laughed at the Chumpy Chumps. When all thinking they lost hope, there was the “Old Timey Ice cream” shop. As the cats were making a very unusual and disgusting drink, Gordon then loses his left eyeball and patch while also passing out by drinking it. Kimberly then comes by ordering a root beer float. As the cats realize that root beer is in their blood, Blik milks a cow and makes vanilla ice cream, Gordon makes the mug frosty and cold, and Waffle tests the sweetness of the root beer. Kimberly then takes a sip saying it’s the best root beer float she ever had, making more customers come. The cats then make more and more money than they ever could while getting frosty mugs and scoops of ice cream in them and filling then up to the top with sugary foam. The mayor then gives the cats four dollars (keeping all the money to himself) which makes Mr. Blik angry and causes them to get fired. Mr. Blik then threatens the mayor (with a broken ice cream cone like a broken bottle) and accidentally destroys the Chumpy Chumps' floats, causing them to chase the cat brothers. Meanwhile, Randall the Bear was hired to be a new worker and opened up the weird powder of root beer. Just when the cats come in from being chased around, the packet gets thrown into the big barrel of root beer, causing it to break open, flooding the mall, and making a huge tidal wave which sends the cats back at the gate of the mansion. It was bad again when the cats came home from being fired at the mall. Gordon then says they will all starve unless what Waffle says by licking themselves. Mr. Blik then slaps him and asks him if he has any other better ideas. After all the cats have been through, Waffle had a receipt all the time to took back the vases. Gordon and Blik without a word drop their jaws and pass out. The episode ends with Waffle shouting “SPLEE” and popping more bubble wrap.


  • There are several jobs the cats tried to get that include working in the women’s department, pet store, operators for a children’s train ride, food court, mall security guards, boot store, and waiters at the "Old Timey ice cream" shop.
  • The way that Waffle swims in the bubble wrap may be a reference to the TV series "Ducktales" as one of the main characters, Scrooge McDuck swims in his money bin.
  • The outfits that the cats wear while working for the "Vitural comic" store resemble the DC superhero Wonder Woman.
  • This episode is similar to the book Baseball Saved us. One Similarity is that the cats in this episode and the characters in baseball saved us is that Shorty and his family and the cats in this episode both had to move out of their houses really fast and were both removed from their houses really fast and Shorty and his family and the cats had to get rid of and throw away a lot of their stuff. Also, the scene in this episode where the chump brothers made fun of the cats was like life for Shorty before he and his family went to camp and after when he was in a baseball game at school after he came home from camp in baseball Saved us as he was called names to a lot like the cats were for being broke by the chump brothers. Also, things were bad again for Shorty and his family in baseball saved us after he and his parents came home from camp and things were bad in the end of this episode again for the cats when the returned home from being fired at the mall with no money.



  • When Waffle is seen channel surfing, his right foot is missing toe divisions.
