He's just a dolphin...isn't he?
4 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Flipper saves a woman from drowning and automatically it's assumed that Flipper will make a great life guard. The wife's husband starts and experiment, but may be greatly disappointed in what is to come.

Bud, of course, is the ever trusting believer in his friend, Flipper; so when Flipper doesn't do as expected, Bud is extremely upset that Flipper let him down.

There's really nothing new or fascinating in this episode. Sandy is Dad's little helper, Bud is Flipper's best friend, and family are...well...curious!

Of course, in the end, Flipper gets to prove himself!
