  • Episode Description
  • "Funny Bunnies" JoJo and Skeebo have been playing a fun game of pretending to be statues. Jumberto the Jackrabbit shows up and has some problems with his wand, so he asks JoJo and Skeebo to look after his bunnies while he goes to get it fixed. It seems easy at first, but it turns out that it's not very simple to keep them either asleep or still. "Ivan the Bearable" While JoJo's clown class is learning pantomime, Mr. Tickle comes in to make a big announcement: Ivan the Bearable is coming all the way from Circuslavakia to Circus Town to perform his world-famous act. An unfortunate event causes his needed materials to be left on his train, so a unique solution is needed to communicate with him.moreless

    Trivia (1)

    • In "Ivan the Bearable," the show's staff seemed to have major problems keeping track of what non-regular members of JoJo's clown class were present at any given time. At the beginning of the episode, only Tater was present of the three that rotate from time-to-time. When the class first goes to see Ivan the Bearable, Tater disappears from sight and Bal Boa is present. Finally, when everyone watches Ivan's act, both Tater and Bal Boa are present and Dinky has suddenly shown up as well.

    • JoJo: Thank you. Thank you very much.
      At one point in "Funny Bunnies," Jumberto's malfunctioning wand ends up causing a bird to be donned in an Elvis Prsley outfit complete with sunglasses. JoJo then later has to ask it to "shh" when it starts playing guitar. When it does, she's the one gets to use one of Elvis's famous lines.
