Episode Summary


Remember how you used to be lucky if you scored a couple dollars from your sidewalk lemonade stand? Well, after earning a cool $221.00 with her own stand, Michelle heads straight to the candy store but gets sidetracked and comes home with a donkey. Danny agrees to let her keep it until morning, which results in a long, loud evening that only one family member can control.


Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • THIS IS NUTS (or reviewing the reviewers)

    After a long process of trying to become a member here I am and I have something to say. I am probably wasting my time saying it .but Hey reviewers (you know which ones you are), It's a funny show. You are supposed to laugh. All you say is that this plot has been done before. So what. What hasn't been done before? What I might of hoped to read in these reviews was the answer to the question, Was Joey (Stamos) the actual singer of the three's company theme song. Apparently he was the singer of the Full House theme song. Also the comments that the buying of a donkey of a child was not realisitc is unwarrented. It's a show. If a little girl went to buy a donkey and the donkey store said she was too young then it would not be interresting or funny. If you want reality turn off the TV and look at your reflextion. As a final comment, I have misspelled some words in this review. Outside of the fact that spelling is a challenge for me I decided not to look up to the word just to see if my spelling would be reviewed as being unreallistic. Sorry for jumping on my soap box but I really don't get it when people expect realism and originality from a sitcom. Have you watched Mork and Mindy?moreless
  • Crazy, but a guilty pleasure!

    You can tell things were getting strange in the show's final season. There were episodes with plots that were done over a million times (like "Comet's Excellent Adventure" and "I've Got a Secret"), some decent "special" plots (like "Stephanie's Wild Ride" and "Under the Influence,") obvious cutbacks due to the show getting more expensive to produce (i.e. fake-looking effects, canned music, etc.) and then episodes like this. This one seems like it was just something ABC wanted to get out the door, but surprisingly the donkey scenes are rather humorous! OK, the "Three's Company" thing got old after a while (Jesse made it sound like the Mr. Rogers theme for some reason) but I was cracking up at the mayhem Shorty was causing (including Mrs. Gibbler shouting from offscreen, "Whatever that is, I'm gonna shoot it!" or "Shut up Tanner, I'd rather hear the donkey!"; and Shorty wrecking Danny's portrait and Stephanie's map.) Not one of the best episodes, but it's still good for laughs!moreless
  • Leave It To Michelle

    It's official the writers don't have any ideas and is ripping off Leave It To Beaver. I remember an episode where Beaver and his friends gets a donkey. Michelle spends her money on a donkey and Danny the clean freak doesn't get rid of it the first moment he sees the beast and the donkey. No adult can sell anything including livestock to little children cause it isn't legal. Then Jesse and Michelle stays up all night singing Three's Company to the donkey. It is no wonder this was the final season.moreless
  • Look dad its michelle and the bean stock.

    I thought this was a very silly episode. Not one of their better. Nobody would really sell a donkey to a kid. And whats up with all these livestock showing up in a residential area? one episode a horse now a donkey come on. Like nobdy would notice Michelle walking a donkey home. And Jesse staying up all night to sing to the donkey? please. Michelle knew how her father was she knew she would never be able to keep the donkey even if their residence was zoned for it. Just a bad episode for the Tanners.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Danny signs for the picture of his great-great grandfather, you see him signing but when he turns around there is no clipboard in the deliveryman's hand.

    • Danny's great-great grandfather fought in the Civil War and was in Union.

    • When Danny tells Michelle she will have to clean up after Shorty, she says it's not a problem since she already cleans up after her pet hamster. When did she get a hamster, and where is it in the house? The only pet we've ever been shown is Comet.

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Michelle: (about a picture of Danny's relative) Whoa, who's the geek in the hat?!?!?!?
      Danny: Sweetheart, this happens to be your great-great-great grandfather.
      Michelle: Great. So, who wants to go on a candy run?

    • Joey: (about Michelle) Come on, Danny, how much can she possibly spend? The most I ever spent at a candy store was, oh, $185.

    • (Michelle comes home with a donkey)
      Danny: This is all your fault, Jesse. You had to tell her, "Hey, go out and live a little."
      Jesse: A, I don't talk like that. And two, I thought she was going to the candy store. So unless that thing's got a creamy chocolate center, I can't be blamed for this!
      Michelle: Well, we were on our way to the candy store when we passed a petting zoo.
      Joey: Well, apparently, you didn't pass it completely!

    • Danny: Okay, it's settled. We'll take Shorty to the zoo. Only question is, whose car are we taking?
      Joey: With a shave and a hat, we could get him on the bus.

    • Michelle: Anyone want to make a candy run with me?
      Joey:(Balancing a pencil on his nose) Not now, Michelle. We're working.

    • (Danny and Jesse are suggesting what Michelle should do with her money)
      Joey: Michelle, I have a third suggestion. Invest it, buy some art,(pointing at Danny's picture) and stick it in that frame.

    • Danny: This picture should be put in a place of honor.
      Joey: How about under the mantle?
      Danny: The fireplace is under the mantle.
      Joey: I'll get the matches.

    • Danny: I found a picture of my great grandfather, General Cornwall Tanner. I had it blown up and completely restored.
      (Danny shows Jesse and Joey the picture)
      Joey: You should have just had it blown up.

    • (Shorty ate through Gen.Tanner's picture and is sticking his head through it)
      Danny: Great grand daddy Cornwall!!!
      Jesse: You know, I'm finally starting to see the family resemblance.

    • Kimmy: (about Gen. Cornwall Tanner) Whoa! Did you get a picture of the front end of the horse, too?
      Danny: He happens to be one of my relatives. If you'd like to see your relatives, go rent Gorillas in the Mist.

    • Stephanie: So, how'd your little lemonade business go?
      Michelle: Not bad. I made $221.

      (she hugs Michelle)
      Kimmy: Give your favorite neighbor 100.
      (she holds out her hand)
      Michelle: I didn't get rich by being stupid.
      D.J.: Michelle, how did you make that much money?
      Michelle: Hot men, cold lemonade, no change.
      (she holds up all of her dollar bills as a fan and counts the money)

    • Danny: Anybody want to buy a donkey?!
      Jesse: Danny, nobody wants to buy a donkey.
