  • A bratty rich kid, seemingly desperate for friends, defends a poor boy against a greedy video game salesman. When he accidentally steals a game called "Wisdom," he ends up learning that a friend, not money, is the most importantly thing he could have.

    I really have mixed feelings about this episode. The sets, costumes, and characters made for a lush, carnival of vivid color, and at times it was outright funny. The unexpected ending was great also. But, the premises and the overly fanfarish nature of this made it seem really silly at times. Execution for stealing a game? The Wisdom game world and the price the kids must pay for stealing it is a bit stiff. But, I suppose that is one of the two morals approached in this episode. One being: do not steal, and two: learn to value friendship.
