  • Mother Goose's Life is in Danger

    Angels are assigned to help Mother Goose Toy Company find out why he has been receiving threats.

    Sabrina goes undercover as a daughter of a well-known Toy company in Hong Kong. Kris is disguised as a life size rag doll in order to make the switch regarding the blueprints of Mother Goose's Christmas toy collection

    Phelan, an underworld boss thinks he has been taken so he goes after Mother Goose's top toy designer. The Angels and Bosely eventually apprehend the designer and also Phelan and his men.

    This episode had the Angels using their detective skills to help them get closer to Phelan, his men, and the toy designer plans. They bugged and setup Phelan to take the bait, making him think he had the blueprints of the new toy collection.

    I was surprised that the average rating for this episode was rated fair. This episode kept my interest and displayed clever undercover disguises for the Angels. Especially, Kris as a life size rag doll and her clever technique to use her gum to stuff in the toy cannon causing the gun to backfire.moreless

    • Sabrina: (Coming into the designing room) Is he dead? (Walking towards Roclair)
      Kris: (dressed as a rag doll) No. I think he fainted.
      Sabrina: Fainted. (Kneeling beside Roclair, checking his pulse and moves his gun out of the way)
      Kris: Yeah. (Hopping on the table) See, he rigged the cannon to shoot people and then he ran in here and got it himself. Only he didn't really get it because I put my chewing gum in the barrel
      Sabrina: You did what? (Turning to look at Kris confused)
      Kris: (Smiling) He he he he.

    • Kris: Bree, what about this Roclair guy?
      Sabrina: Gordan Roclair... Well, he maybe very bright but he is also el wacko. He wants to make a little guillotine that cuts little heads off and he wants to make little automobiles that hit little pedestrians. He also said "Mother Goose is going down the tubes" and that is a direct quote.

    • Gordan Roclair: (Showing Sabrina some blue prints) This is driving game.
      Sabrina: Yeah.
      Gordan Roclair: The cars are all souped-up on simulators and you get pedestrians who are the targets and you get points for every pedestrian that you hit.
      Sabrina: Points.
      Gordan Roclair: Uh huh.
      Sabrina: Do you think this is good for the children?
      Gordan Roclair: Children have always lived in a world of fantasy and besides, they actually get rid of their aggressions this way.
