Episode Recap

Frankie decides she's had enough of Mr. Herriman's oppression, so one night at dinner, she throws an open challenge for President of Foster's: her, Herriman and Bloo. At first, the tides are clearly in favor of Frankie and her honest, "woman of the people" campaign - with everybody cheering her during the official debate - so a worried Mr. Herriman convinces Bloo to drop out of the race and become his campaign manager. Together, they bombard the house with unsavory attack ads against Frankie; complete with a paid-advertisement song (which even she admits is catchy). The redhead, instead of attacking her competition, does a heartfelt speech over the intercom to win the friends back. The next day, the election is held, and when the results are tabulated…Frankie wins by a landslide, getting 1,287 votes while Mr. Herriman gets only 52 (and Coco gets one write-in vote). From the get-go, Frankie proves to be a very successful and well-liked president; however, as a result, Mr. Herriman decides to leave the house for good, and becomes a grocery bagger at a supermarket. This, along with the discovery that her new payday consists of a few pennies and carrots, causes Frankie to reconsider and put the rabbit back in charge.
