  • This episode stuck with me since I first saw it as a little kid, and still hit me just as hard when I saw it again years later. It is so deep for a kid's show and deals with this sensitive subject so well.

    I love the song in this episode. It is WAY deep for a children's show... but that goes to show that even children's shows can have meaning for all ages. The song "Just a Dream Away" is great. It talks about how things change shape, but don't actually ever go away, like Wembley, who loses his new friend Mudwell. He doesn't actually die, but has somewhat of a metamorphosis into this other creature, yet he has no memory of who he was. So, I guess you can say he is reincarnated into another creature. Anyway, this awesome is one of the best.
