Encyclopedia Brown

Show Summary

Welcome to the Encyclopedia Brown guide at TV.com. Based on the popular children's book, Idaville had its own pint sized detective, Leroy "Encyclopedia" Brown. Along with his partner Sally Kimball, they solve cases to help out his dad, Chief Brown, while trying to steer clear from town bully Bugs Meany. There was a special entitled, "The Case of the Missing Time Capsule" in which Idaville celebrated its 100th birthday. The hour long special grew so popular that HBO ordered 6 more episodes each were 30 minutes long. There is no editor for this show. If you would like to be the editor look here for details.

  • Childhood favorite

    This was a favorite of mine as a kid. It was very much a detective series for kids, and had just enough suspense to leave you wondering what would happen next, without frightening you. It was basically a whodunit type of detective story. It was a shame it lasted such a short time, but being on HBO it probably didn't have many viewers.
  • A boy detecive EB and Sally have to solve mysteries.

    Although I've only seen 2 episodes I know that this was a very good show and that I hope that

    I see all of the episodes. The show was imformative and funny and brain-twisting. I always wonder begginning to end how it's going to end out. Who's doing this stuff. And how? this is a really good show and I hope that you like it too. This would be great for you to watch and if you do decide to watch i hope you like it. Thanks for reading my review for Encyclopedia Brown. Enjoy.moreless
