  • Episode Description
  • Molly is tired of no one noticing her, especially when she has something to day. After watching a movie one night, she's convinced the tower a few blocks down is the home of a mad scientist. Since no one ever notices her, she goes to investigate on her own. While she's there, she accidentally turns on a machine that shrinks her. When Baloo, Kit, and Becky find that she's missing, they search high and low for her. Only they don't know how low they should be searching. Can they find the minuscule Molly?moreless

    • (Rebecca wakes Baloo up) Rebecca: Baloo! Baloo: Huh?! Rebecca: We've got to finish the inventory. Baloo: (grabs the account book) I am. I am. Rebecca: The account book is upside down. Baloo: Hey. Creative accounting.

    • Rebecca: How am I going to find her, Baloo? She could be anywhere. Baloo: Easy, honey. We just gotta think this thing through rationally. Rebecca: (yells) I am thinking rationally! Baloo: No, you're thinking loudly.

    • Baloo: Wow! I bet a radio this size could pick up the moon! Dr. Zhivaldo: Don't touch that! It's not a radio, it's a shrinking machine, my life's work. It makes things smaller so they will fit into suitcases better, or will once I perfect it. Baloo: (whispers to Kit) Sounds like he could use a good shrink himself.

    • Kit: He is a mad doctor! Dr. Zhivaldo: I am not mad! Of course, I'm not thrilled about you being here either.

    • Baloo: You don't think there's really a mad scientist in here? Rebecca: No, but there is a mad mother!

    Allusions (3)

    • Zibaldo: What do you want? Are you robbers? Here, here, take my watch, take my money, take me me out to the ball game... This a reference to the Tim Pan Alley song Take Me out to The Ball Game.

    • Rebecca: Until next time, the balcony is closed! This is a reference to the tv series Siskel & Ebert & The Movies, in which Siskel and Ebert would close each episode with the exact same phrase.

    • Mad Scientist: Give my creation life!

      The black & white movie that comprises this episode's opening sequence is an homage/spoof to Universal's 1931 film version of Frankenstein, right down to the monster the mad scientist creates resembling Boris Karloff.
