Why'd They Cancel It?
26 October 2004 | by MollyWobbles6093See all my reviews

This was a cute show...i loved the episode where Bobby has to take a drug test and he finds out he's been eating birdseed instead of cereal, which has been making his test come back positive for drugs every time (and the scene where he's been "holding it" for a while and everyone's trying to make him think about having to pee)! And Justin Cooper was just the most adorable little blond kid ever (see Liar, Liar for more proof)!^_^ Why would ABC cancel it? This was one of the best shows on TGIF before all this George Lopez and Hope & Faith crap. This one and Teen Angel (where a not-so-bright teenager dies after eating a hamburger from Halloween in summer and comes back as his buddy's guardian angel) made it worth staying in with the family on Friday night.
