Terrific episode with a subtle lesson about greed and generosity...
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Often criticized by viewers as being 'too good to be true', the Davis twins Buffy and Jody actually get to exhibit a bit of uncommon bad behavior in this episode where they come into a combined inheritance of some fifty-four dollars. Seems an elderly pigeon-feeder in the park took a liking to the kids and remembered them in his will, all of which leads the kids to the nearest toy store to spend their loot. Despite the fact the shelves are loaded with mouth-watering goodies (like a Disneyland See 'n Say, which is now worth a good $300), Buffy wants a dollhouse (yawn) and Jody wants a telescope. Both items cannot be purchased with their one check, so Uncle Bill tosses a coin. Predictably (but happily), the kids learn a lesson about greed and giving, and everyone ends up satisfied (with the possible exception of the clerk in the toy shop!). Somewhat similar to the famous "Brady Bunch" episode where the gang squabbled over their trading stamps, this one doesn't have a house-of-cards sequence, instead putting character development over situation.
