Kind of an Animanics Paradise
21 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode has a strange setting that sets up the story. Kaye & Eve are working in the Hubbard Living room on their costumes as the episode opens. Both of them and the kids are doing a costume play at the Children's Hospital. Herb is working on a TV script for the Masked Martian. Herb is working on his acceptance speech for being named the Treasurer at his Lodge.

The three events merge into one night. Roger tries to solve his writers block by taking walks to clear his head. The walks are innocent enough until Eve suggest to Kaye that she should follow Roger around and find out where he is walking.

About midway through the show, everyone gets into their costumes. Roger dresses up as the Masked Martian to see how people in the are react to the costume. The reaction is the cops pick him up and throw him in the slammer with a drunk. Then everyone else comes to the jail to get Roger out all dressed in their costume. The Desk Sargent goes nuts.

There are 3 or 4 good physical comedy bits in this one, but while it is overall pleasant, it could be better.
