Gary asks them who told them his name, and Darwin tells him it was the Russian agents, who drive up at that moment. They do it cause they still don't know his name and has had many encounters of seeing him and blanking on his name like on the way home, near a train, and even at school. Gary ends up crying, believing he has been replaced as the neighborhood mailman. As the Russian agents approach Gary's house, Gumball, Darwin, and Gary stick a dummy in Gary's likeness out the top window. The next scene shifts to and wearing winter coats because they are hiding from their next door neighbor,. Hey, I agree, it emits a lovable simplicity.
The worst thing that could possibly happen is that a joke is entirely referential and hinged on insularity, but Gumball tends to know better, which is really impressive. The boys then find Gary at the mall, and address him by his real name: Harry Gedges. Gary responds he'd rather the two never talk to him again, and the episode ends. People talk about the show's talent at visual communication, and that's on full display here: the scene almost works as a silent film. And I'll further add that the show's ability to use references that reward people who recognize them but don't necessarily close people out who don't is something the show is really great at executing. Anyway, i thought the neighbor was pretty entertaining. The idea itself is incredibly simple: Gumball and Darwin don't know their neighbor's name and go to desperate measures to try to figure out what it is.
The former allows the show to explore its medium to its fullest extent, while the latter demonstrates the strength of the show's dialogue and how important that is to Gumball's identity. They then believe Gary is dead, and drive away. For instance, perhaps the most well-executed scene from the episode was Gumball and Darwin's rushed date-to-marriage between Gary and Crocodile Woman. It really does make you realize that of all the times that guy has appeared, they never have said his name. My favorite example would be the amnesia punchline; the dialogue meanders for a bit, with Gumball and Darwin discussing getting amnesia as an excuse for forgetting Gary's name, before Darwin suggests they remember each others' names by writing them on their arms. Right in my apartment, I have no idea what the names are of any of my neighbors.
So Darwin puts the shredded papers back in. At the park, Gary is feeding the when Gumball pushes into him, and he and Darwin attempt to wed the two, but Gary freaks out and runs away. He's a light blue colored guy with a hat and antlers. Gumball decides to receive the package from Gary anyway, but Gumball still does not know his name, confusing Gary, who leaves the package with the other unopened packages. It's great how the last joke keeps escalating. And then it just goes and pulls directly from Budapest's cable car sequence, by which point I was just beaming.
Gary runs away, and Gumball and Darwin follow him. Gustave escape prison and head to a mountaintop monastery. I might have been better when I lived in an actual house. Important details about the plot or story are up ahead The episode begins with an orange fire hydrant and a blue mailbox up close. Cue Gumball lifting his shirt sleeve and revealing his name written three times. For instance, a friend brought up that the characterizations of Gumball and Darwin are slightly off, and I feel somewhat obliged to agree: Gumball and Darwin are both a bit more ditzy here than usual.
Sure, it's not a knock-out success by any means, but it succeeds most in its simplicity, going for a more writerly execution than one designed to stand out. That's classic cartoon fodder, but as the show always does, it pushes that premise to the most insane degree possible. As Gumball and Darwin walk away, the Mayor, who has been listening in on the conversation, calls his associates and puts this exact plan into action. Opinion: Ok, let me just say right off the bat, i am so happy that the show finally revealed the neighbor's name Harry Gedges, fake name being Gary Hedges. And I like that mentality. This has been a question lingering throughout the whole show and finally we got the answer. At this point, our window with that guy would be harder to open than a ski shop in the Sahara.
The plot's quite simple as Gumball and Darwin simply try to find out what his name is. After recalling several embarrassing situations where they did not know his name an awkward greeting, trying to save Gary from an oncoming train, and jumping out the school window when brings him to their class , Darwin realizes that Gary is standing right behind them, and the two boys immediately run away, but Gary explains that he has a package for them.

Although, i do have some gripes with the neighbor too. The jokes are fine and consistent and the surprise of Gary being a witness under protection was interesting but I think they needed to work more into that, escalating it into a really insane memorable episode.
All attempts fail to the point where they make a poster sign asking people if anyone knows his name. He signs, but his writing is unreadable due to the form getting wet from his tears. But it's a necessary adjustment to making the episode work, allowing the two to function as an effective foil to Gary, however unsophisticated his personality is. Those beats throughout the episode help find an engaging way of rehashing the old storyline. This is just a solid episode that isn't trying to do anything too risky, though with the same quirky indulgence as always, and it's always nice to see the final season playing with new concepts. Seeing Gary, Gumball, and Darwin flee from the dog-thugs is already fun enough, but filtering that through the framework of a Wes Anderson film complete with a soundalike score! At that point, a guy in a car tells them his name but little did they know how much chaos it led to.
