Storyline

Martin's malfunctioning molecular reassembler is what Tim uses to accidentally turn a squirrel into a human being. Martin has to fix the reassembler within 8 hours or else "Red" as they've coined him will be permanently changed to that of a human. In the meantime, Red's family moves in with the O'Hara's until he can be changed back to his proper squirrel state. Problems arise when Det. Brennan and Mrs. Brown come for a visit and notice a squirrel entering the apartment. The detective talks about calling in an exterminator to which Red takes offense and runs off. Tim finds him in an obvious location, a nut shop. To explain Red's conviction to the store clerk and the police called in that he's a squirrel, Martin states that they are a singing group called the Squirrels performing at that evening's Police Follies. They do perform at the Follies, much in the same vein as the Chipmunks, before they take Red home to transform him back to his proper state. Written by Huggo
