  • Fitzhugh gets picked up by two boys who think he's a magical elf.

    8.5
    This was like "Harry Potter" meets "Land of the Giants".

    There are two orphans who are ruled by an old, cranky old man named Partay. There's a mysterious organ grinder and a monkey and in the middle it's Fitzhugh. Actually the episode is still pretty decent. I guess Irwin and writers were fully developing the idea of a couple of Giants being friends with the survivors. Furthermore, he's definitely seems to be pushing the idea of many orphanages being miserable dumps.



    Fitzhugh is happy with the boys until he realizes they are about to sacrifice his life by burning him. A couple of nice scenes make the episode worth watch though.
