  • Classic case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. [spoilers]

    Very cute episode, in my opinion. Amy, looking for the perfect place to hide, accidentally hops in someone\'s car and ends up being \'kidnapped\'. As the so-called criminals drive down the street, Amy discovers a head of a little girl in the car, she begins to panic. The gang suspect the worse and race to save her, but can they find Amy before it\'s too late?



    Some people may argue that Amy wouldn\'t be dumb enough to hide in a parked car\'s trunk. However, I think that this is very in-character, Seeing as how she\'s only a little girl; Children\'s logic can be very backwards sometimes. Also, jumping to conclusions would be another very childlike thing to do. The \'head\' she finds in the car-- actually a prop for a play-- would be very convincing, seeming lifelike in the darkness she was in.



    I don\'t partictularly like how Conan jumped to conclusions, though. Yes, he may have been receiving altered information, but I wouldn\'t think he\'d just immediately assume Amy was in danger. Conan is an adult, dispite his outer appearance, and he is also very levelheaded. I think that Jimmy was portrayed very poorly.



    The Solarpowered skateboard was a nifty new invention for Conan, though. And the walkie talkie badges have and will be important for the Junior Detective League throughout the show. The gadgets were a plus to this episode.



    I think that this episode was handled very well, and very dramatic. It also had much comedy (at least, at the end.) I enjoyed this episode alot.moreless
