Episode guide
The Lost Skate Spot

Golden Grinders is the very first and "pilot" episode of the Wild Grinders series. This episode only aired on Kabillion on Youtube.



Main Characters

Supporting Characters

  • Chad and Ashelina (debut)
  • Butler (debut)
  • Newscaster (debut)
  • Gene (voiced by Rob Dyrdek)
  • Patty (voiced by Tracy Tubera)



  • This is the first episode that was aired on Kabillion.
  • Because this was the first episode produced and was commissioned for Kabillion, there are several differences from the online version and the TV series:
    • The theme song and opening sequence is different.
    • Emo Crys' voice is different because he was portrayed by Yuri Lowenthal and has a slight, high-pitched tone. However, he is portrayed by Cam Clarke in the TV series, using a slightly deep nasal tone and uses figurative language more.
    • Goggles, Spitball, and Jack Knife are also voiced as Yuri Lowenthal (credited as Jimmy Benedict), but there are differences for them:
      • Jack Knife's voice is stammered in both Golden Grinders and The Lost Skate Spot instead of a country or western accent like on the TV series.
      • Spitball speak Spanish in both the episodes that are aired on Kabillion; while in the TV series, he speaks only English.
      • Goggles uses a slightly deeper tone and rarely speaks, rather than his voice from the TV series, which is slightly lighter.
    • Meaty does not speak at all, meaning that he was originally non-anthropomorphic.
    • Lil Rob uses a different tone in the TV series, rather than the online episodes.
    • Jay Jay and Emo Crys seem to take the role as "best friend" to Lil Rob in the online version instead of Goggles.
    • Tracy Tubera voiced Patty in Golden Grinders; however, Erin Fitzgerald portrays the voice of Patty in the TV series.
    • There are no antagonists, such as Stubford Hucksterball, in both pilots.
    • Because the Dyrdek family was incomplete in this episode, Denise does not make an appearance, until Close-Up.
  • This marks the only episode that a character swears; Ashelina saying "Oh my god!" as an example.
  • Chad, Ashelina, the female reporter, the butler, and the construction workers' voice actors are unknown and uncredited.
  • Charlie Schlatter provides the work of voice director; he is known for his voice actor works as Ace from Loonatics Unleashed and the titular Kick Buttowski.


  • Chad and Ashelina are mockups of famous celebrity couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
    • Ironically, the breakup between these cartoon characters predict the similarity of Pitt and Jolie's divorce in 2016.


  • We might not know what happened to Goggles through out the episode.
  • The butler will make his last appearance in Scream a Little Scream.

Animation Errors

  • Spitball has Emo Crys's skateboard instead of his original one, starting the episode (0:59-1:01).
  • Jay Jay's skateboard is misplaced by a lavender skateboard with red wheels (2:03-2:07).
  • A few of the Grinders' boards are missing, as Jay Jay was above (2:10-2:13).
  • A few of the babies are switched when zoomed in.
    • For the last time, several of the babies, especially the ugly one, are switched, but an extra one is added to Chad's arms.
  • Possibly, Lil Rob's mane is drastically missing; however, part of his mane is combed upwards. In the TV series, Rob's hair is combed shortly in above, but in his pajamas profile, a bit of hair is sticking up.
  • A female is reporter is missing when on television.
  • Emo Crys's wheels have red sides unusually, when raising his board up high.
    • Emo Crys's board wheels are fully red instead of black.
  • Emo Crys's peekaboo is swicthed to his left eye incorrectly, instead of the right, like originally.
    • The tip of Emo's peekaboo is unattached in the right. Earlier, his peekaboo is completely curved.
