Short description: Aang, Katara, Toph and Zuko duke it out in this chibi short offered on the season two box set to prove once and for all which element is best.

Note: Unlike the numbers for the regular episodes, the "017" designation here is just for our internal database and doesn't have anything to do with how this short may be referenced by Nick or the Avatar staff.

Well, another funny chibi short!

My favorite part was toward the end, where Iroh gives a speech about all the elements, then says "But fire is the best!" and runs away with Zuko.

I also like Katara fangirling over Zuko. Too funny! And then Zuko got angry, and he didn't even look like a chibi anymore, but his regular self.

I'm glad Toph actually had more screentime here.Toph's voice sounded rather different, but I liked her all the same, as she pwned everyone in the Bending Battles.

And didn't Aang look adorable as a chibi?

That Chibi short was the best thing in the world. The qoutes that were used for it won everything. I think that my favorite lines was when Katara went all fangirly over Zuko, and him shouting 'I'm not tiny or cute!' and Iroh's 'You are very cute my tiny nephew'. That had me laughing for minutes. I also liked how Iroh was the cheerleader person along with Momo and Appa. XP But I think Iroh's final line took the cake, it was very surprising and quite funny. He just .poof. ran away with Zuko.

Whomever wrote this, (I never read the credits other then the voices) win BIG points for the hilarious dialogue. The only thing that bugged me is how Toph was drawn, and played out through the short. They could have done her better, epscally in her voice, but I'm not complaining...the rest of the humor makes up for it.

I must say, Greg did a wonderful job with Iroh's voice, by the end of the short, I could have bet money that it sounded almost just like Mako. All in all, this was an great short, it made me laugh and it was awesome, I'll be watching it many times over and over. <3 10/10

This chibi short was awesome. Definitely one of my fav shorts. It had so many funny scenes. The 'You are very cute my tiny nephew' line was the best XD XD

My only complaint is that Toph looked like a boy! But I LOVED her earthbending moves.

For me, the best of the three.  Smiley  I was cracking up during the whole thing.

And I agree, Greg Baldwin makes a wonderful Iroh.

Well after so many complaints of "Where's Toph" and "Why didn't Toph have any lines" from SchoolTime Shipping, we get quite the opposite here. The gang each had ample lines of dialogue throughout the short and funny dialogue at that. These shorts are supposed to be so completely non-canon that the Avatar staff is allowed to get as crazy as they want to be. There's no shortage of Anime face faults throughout Bending battle and the characters are wackier than you've ever seen them. All in all it's as funny as Avatar is allowed to be and I'm grateful for that.

I loved it. Zuko was so cute and Sokka was beaten up like a dummy...even more than ususal. I like how Appa flipped his 8 upside-down. And Greg Baldwin does a fantastic job with Iroh's voice. Toph's huge booger still disgusted me, though >.<

I love how Zuko's fire dragon got turned into volcanic ash by Katara's wave!  I bet that the creators have seen all the sculptures made from Mt. St. Helen's volcanic ash and used that as inspiration!

This short is so cute and funny! I loved it when chibi Zuko turned into normal Zuko and "deflated" back into chibi form again. "I am neither cute nor tiny!" "You're very cute my tiny nephew." That was an awesome play with words.

Katara err.... splitting popsicled Sokka into tiny cubes and putting him back was rather shocking yet amusing at the same time. If she uses this technique in the Avatar World, whoa ho ho!

I loved how they made fun of The Great World being seen from the Moon with Toph's earthbending. The pin ball machine was hilarious too!

Ah... These shorts are awesome!

The impression I got from Toph's voice in this short is that Jessie Flower "chibified" her voice to go with the super-deformed drawing style. In any case, the concept is just wonderful. "You are very cute, my tiny nephew" might just be my new favorite Iroh quote.

Did anyone else notice that when Zuko and Iroh first appeared on the cliff edge, their poses were practically identical to the ones on the back of the SD tee-shirt?

Awesome, awesome short, but I can't help but feel sorry for Sokka in these couple shorts.

Oh man, the first time I heard the end credits, I nearly choked. Chibified music! Never new music could be cute like that...

Toph's shorts bothered me, but the bending- too funny. Just too funny.

This one is plain awesome! Funny without end, the expressions and movements (Katara's little twirl while Sokka is showing his boomerang gesture) are priceless. The Zutara is funny as well, even though I don't support it, hehe.

Overall, a priceless short.

I just loved chibi Toph and chibi Aang, there where my favorites. Sokka was so funny holding the fish when he got out of the water. I also loved how Zuko got mad ans became the real Zuko. He was so cute!

Awesome, awesome short, but I can't help but feel sorry for Sokka in these couple shorts.

Yeah, that was one of my first reactions too.  Why is he always the butt?  In the show at least he gets a few semi-heroic moments.   Tongue

I am gonne be really heterodox here and protest that Nick saved the worst for last...I thought "School Time" was far superior to both of these latest.  But chibification is always cool in its own right...for sheer cuteness.   Grin   Iroh's final line is totally in character.  And the fire dragon...awesome.   Smiley
