Helping Dad
2 December 2012 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Sandy and Bud believe their father, Porter, has just been filed and go to town to find him a new job. They never actually say that its their father needing the work, but everyone picks up on this and jumps to that conclusion. One job lead leads to another until they finally find themselves about to go through a naval firing range. For some reason they think it would be safe.

Meanwhile, Dad goes to see another ranger about the mysterious disappearance of animals. The other ranger tries to rescue a bear from quicksand and finds himself stuck in it as well. It really looks like both ranger and bear cub are doomed...

Being part one, the episode leaves us in in suspense as Sandy and Bud head into the firing range.
