Goofs

Originally, it was not Bobby Newport, but Nick Newport Jr. who was the "Heir to the Newport Throne". (Nick Jr. appears in season 2 as the CEO of Sweetums.) However, in "Campaign Ad" and subsequent episodes, Bobby is described as the heir to the Newport throne, depicted as an only child--Nick Jr. is never mentioned. See more »

Great Episode
6 August 2019 | by JMaddocks96See all my reviews

It's been a while since P&R made me laugh out loud (except the ice-slipping in the last episode), however, Andy Dwyer had me in stitches throughout.
