Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.
1st-season, Siege engines (in-house teams).
4th-season, pumpkin-hurling contest. Team Young Guns won with their Trebuchet-style catapult (very nicely built might I add) against the Rusty Juveniles who had an air cannon.

The "Punkin Chunkin" episode was for accuracy, not for distance. The there would have been no problem out ranging the catapult with the air cannon. Still, we built the machines, and they both worked. Waddy, "Wreckspert" for the "Rusty Juveniles."

Wouldn't the Episode with the Beach Boys against Bowsers thing-a- majig fall in the catagory?
