  • So funny and so well written!

    It's Roger and Sheryl's 17 wedding anaversary, and Roger while Roger goes out to buy diamonds for Sheryl, Kenan and Kel watch America's Criminals. There, they see a tape of a black, bald criminal robbing jewels at a jewelry store. Kel says the bandit kind of looks like Roger.

    Then, they show a drawing of what the bandit looks like...and it IS Kenan's daddy!!! Kenan and Kel then start freaking out. "Bad boys, bad boys, what'cha gonna do, what'cha gonna do when they come for you, daddy?!" LOL

    When Kenan then finds a diamond (Sheryl's anaversary present) in his house, he's freaked out completely. There's only one thing he can do and that is to sneak into the jewelry store at night and get the diamond back into the safe.

    Kenan and Kel then sneak into the bank wearing black diving suits(the only good costume Kel could find). Once in the store, Kel accidently makes a hole in the ceiling with his flippers as well as shattering a jewelry stand. Either way, once they get to the safe, they find it open ajar. Strange as it seems, Kenan and Kel climb into the safe and Kel closes the door. A rather stupid move as safes don't open from the inside.

    Kenan and Kel are now trapped inside the dark safe. The shelves were completely cleaned out by the diamond bandit, but Kenan still has time to conveniantly place the diamond on one of the shelves. They take out a flashlight and realize they're not the only ones in the safe. IT'S THE DIAMOND BANDIT! Kenan and Kel are now begging for mercy as soon as the cops come. The diamond bandit is arrested, and it turns out, it isn't Kenan's daddy. While showing off in the safe, Kel accidently closes the door again, leaving him, Kenan and two cops locked inside....AGAIN.

    This was a truly funny episode. Seeing Kenan and Kel freak out and sqeak like little girls was absolutely priceless and it's one of the reasons the show lasted as long as it did...until it ended. WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!moreless
