  • First appearance of the "new" Ellen.

    This episode marks the first appearance of Robin Brule as Ellen, replacing Rachel Blanchard (Clueless TV Show star, 7th Heaven guest star, Are You Afraid of the Dark, Peep Show, even an episode of Joey). (See IMDb for all the details on these two actresses). I'm sure many fans of the show will debate (as is always the case when a character is played by two actors/actresses) over which was the better Ellen. Certainly, Rachel Blanchard is a very talented actress, but Robin Brule held her own as Ellen through the remaining episodes. I only wish the show had continued for years to come, as it was very smart, funny, and well written and produced. The episode summary tells the story, but leaves out the whole yard sale bit with the ceramic chicken from which the episode title comes. I hope Disney releases these on DVD soon!
