AVGN: Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu

Mike Matei / September 24th, 2006

Watch this video on Youtube

Episode notes by Mike Matei:
- In episode 9 the Nerd reviews a strangle blue unlicensed game called “Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu” (NES)
- James felt this review was lacking, and needed an extra humor element. So he brought in a character called “Shit Pickle” to help him review the game. The character Shit Pickle first appeared in an animated parody of the Wizard of Oz we did entitled The Wizard of Oz 3: Dorthy Goes To Hell
- James does Shit Pickles voice. I drew the character.

    First use of the theme song, and the debut of Shit Pickle, what more could you ask for, I love how the first few years of AVGN he reviewed more unknown games, of course reviewing popular games would mean people could relate more but its good to see some games that people are less familiar with.

    acually, the effect of his clothes moving in the wind is pretty good for the nes.

    Shit pickle is a weird creature that only says its name? Shit pickle must be a Pokemon! Shit Pickle is evolving! Shit Pickle evolved into Shit Cactus!

    A highlight of this episode is that this is the first episode where James reviews a game from Color Dreams, whom we all know later renamed themselve as Wisdom Tree.

    Drunkard Hu? More like Highard Hu.

    i was just playing this game and wanted to pause it so that i could watch james review on the game again. but that piece of shit didn’t even stop playing its music when i paused the game, so i had to shut it off! (i was using an nes emulator, so i couldn’t just turn down the volume on my tv!)

    Shit Pickle should have his own miniseries!

    James, when will Shit Pickle return? In my view, SP is one of your strongest characters. But, he seems to have disappeared of late. It’s too bad because he is hilarious. The comedic timing in this video and other early SP videos are really spot-on. We want him back!

    “Shit Pickle, the Fecal Matter Pokemon, and the evolved form of Poop Cucumber. It is commonly found in the basement of reviewers of shitty games, and its brain is specially adapted to playing said games. After playing enough shitty games, it evolves into Diarrhea Cactus.”

    Two cents of truth: (1) the only game I’ve played on the list thus far is Roger Rabbit; (2) I never payed attention to the review while I kept hearing that fucking Shit Pickle! He defines the term “ROFLCOPTER”!

    i think im the only one who find shitpickle extreemly annoying and not funny. But i suppose i must be the oddball since everyone seems to like him!

    I… I played this game… I don’t know why. I don’t know what the fuck I was thinking. Why did I do it? I can’t un-play this game! Three minutes! Three minutes I played this and it’s three minutes I can never EVER have back! Why!!!???

    I never watched this old one. I’d love to have Shitpickle show up in a cameo in the future. Found it funny as hell although you wouldn’t want to do a whole episode with him in it.

  • _Slashser_

    September 15, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    That game really looks like shit(pickle)!!!!

  • CollinWahlund

    September 15, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Oh, never freaking mind, you DID whole episodes of him as well as the Oz thing.

    I find him more amusing as a guest commentator for the Nerd. Wouldn’t mind a cameo there sometime.

    That game reminds me a lot of The Legend of Kage. They also felt the need to use both buttons for weapons and thereby relegate jumping to up on the pad. Which was the same for climbing. Hilarity ensues.

    Come to think of it, that game is a candidate for the Nerd to hit, IMHO.

    So you added shit pickle which is verbal diareaha, so assuming you didn’t like him, but then you add a cloned piece of shit of you? Sometimes I don’t get where you get your ideas, or why you implement some of them.

    Still I love watching your videos please don’t let the avgn movie stop you from making funny angry nerd reviews.

    Lol, the little yellow man thing that fell is actually an item and not an enemy (although I have no idea why they made it look like an enemy, I would never had guessed).

    shiva…. a fucking Siamese Twin…saying shiva and maha kali are siamese twins or simply two different people is just like saying god&the holy spirit are siamese or the holy spirit is lucifer’s brotherit’s allright to skip some researches and not go too deep in the esoteric bullshit when you’re only producing a game, but seriously nobody in that office thought of asking some hindus or just open a godamn book at the library before making a game where the actual Supreme God of Hinduism, the kind, gracious, ”The Auspicious One” Shiva is a fucking two headed demon who starts random genocides of the human race..

    Well the ending to this one is better than Ghostbusters anyway. When I was a kid renting games I learned early that if it is a baby blue cartridge the game was going to be complete and utter SHIT!!! Pickle.

    I wonder what became of Hu; did he sober up after the demise of Shiva? I learned Hu is a playable character in this game in a two player (simultaneous, woo hoo) game.

    I’m not surprised this game was unlicensed. There’s no way in hell a game called “Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu” would have made it passed 1980s Nintendo censorship. How else would you explain the name “Soda Popinski” in Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out?

  • ToaAntan

    March 18, 2013 at 3:56 am

    …Shit Pickle makes me instantly think of Meatwad. I have no clue why.
