One of the Better Episodes
29 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not one for political correctness (how about that refrigerator clue?), as Anne and Susie laugh at the circus Fat Lady's big dresses, but this episode has a different feel from other episodes.

The grouping is re-arranged, as Alan has a brief adventure with Scooter, Mimi and Nancy, then Flip goes off with Susie. Funny tho, Flip and Susie have no dialogue as they engage in their escapade.

Later, Flip will be paired with Susie, Ann and Tom. But once again, the clincher is Henry and Stanley, this time running from a menacing skeleton on the high wire.

By far the best song to be heard in the cartoon "Let's Give a Hand to the Family Clan" while not geared for being a pop tune, it is bearable to listen to, unlike the offerings in other episodes.

This is the only time the song is played during a chase, like Scooby Doo, Josie & the Pussycats and Jabberjaw, whereas all the other songs would be played when the kids would be performing or (usually) practicing.

Great adventure chase at the end as the kids all go after the bad guy as well.
