  • The first appearance of the Librarian and the first time Buzz speaks!

    In "Library" Ned and Cookie try to bust Loomer as he stole their books and want money to give them back, otherwise, the crazy librarian will mark them. Meanwhile, Moze tries to win a book she wants from a 6th grader who has it, and doesn't plan to give it back.

    In "Volunteering", Ned, Cookie, and Moze all work to recieve their extra-credit volunteering hours.

    Like all episodes, there is one good and one bad. In my opinion, "Volunteering" was the good, as it showed what i desire most, seeing Cookie and Evelyn compete to see who is better. Just what I like. Also, it showed Buzz's voice for the first time, and this time only, at least. I give it a 9.0 out of 10.moreless

  • It was nothing more than a filler episode and it wasn't very funny either.

    Nothing important happened, and I think I remember laughing maybe once the entire episode. It was just king of lame and was obviously just meant to be a filler episode. The idea about the library books being stolen was just stupid, and the librarian was soooooo fricken annoying! Loomer's one crony spoke for the first time...BIG DEAL! And come on how could Moze be so stupid to believe she could actually leave Loomer and his buddies alone with buckets of paint and expect them to do any painting? And no I'm not saying Moze is stupid, she's my favorite character, but that was just a really stupid decision. I got nothing more to say so I'll shut up...for now!moreless
  • Library Loomer is stealing books and charging people to find them. Ned and gang decides to stop him. Volunteering has Ned, Moze, and Cookie doing various volunteering work with diasterous results.moreless

    Library was has Loomer secret stealing books and making people pay to find them. Ned and Cookie tried different method to retrieve the books and is outsmarted by Loomer. Its until they realize Loomer has been reading a book about scams that they are able to stop Loomer.

    Volunteering begin with the Principal tellign Ned and gang that they have some volunteering to complete. They try to take the easy way out and is separated in different activites to finish their volunteer work.

    Ned is a caregiver to an elderly lady who tend to be bad. Moze get Billy and his friends to help paint and cleanup an area. And Cookie is paired with Evelyn in the school bookstore.

    While Ned story dragged, it was Moze and Cookie SL that kept the ep from being outright boring. Moze is showning leaving Billy and his friends alone for awhile and they end up going 3 stooges on the area. Its not until Buzz talks and say why they need to do right about helping out that everyone become inspired. Cookie and Evelyn as usual are like an old married couple. They end up competing against oneanother and end up giving everything away for FREE. At the end they decide to work together.

    Volunterring had 2 surprises. 1) Buzz talked. For 2 and 1/2 seasons Buzz hasn't untter one word, but he spoke in this ep and was a big help to Moze. 2) The Ned/Moze/Cookie "walk". In the opening credit for 2 season we are shown Ned and gang walking arm locked and legs crossing as they walk. Volunteering show "the walk" at very beginning as Ned and gang is approach by the Principal about volunteering.

    Well the mini-eps were filler, except the Cookie/Evelyn stuff as I continue to enjoy them.moreless
  • Library:Loomer steals books when people return them. Moze needs to get a book about Abe Lincoln. Ned and Cookie need to get their books back. Volunteering:Moze cleans up behind the school. Cookie works in school store. Ned goes to nursing home.moreless

    I thought that the episode was pretty good. Not amazing but not horrible. I thought that the librarian was a little scary when she sang in that gross scratchy voice. I didn't really like Ned and Cookie's plot line when Loomer stole their books so he could pretend to find them and make you pay for the books to get more, but I did enjoy Moze's plot line on how she had to be friend that girl in order to get that book about Abe Lincoln. My favorite part was when Mary Belle, I think that is her name, was putting make-up all over Moze's face. It looked really bad! I did like volunteering better then the library. I enjoyed when Ned, Moze, and Cookie were playing broom ball to get there hours. I also loved when Mr. Wright said who will do the school store and taste testing, then Ned and Cookie pointed to each other and then Mr. Wright pushed them in the directions. I hated when Ned had to taste the spoiled milk when it came out looking like cottage chese. It almost made me throw up. I loved how Cookie had to work with Evelyn in the school store, he even made his famous Cookie face! I laughed at Cookie's commercial for his new and improved school store. Then at the end of the add it said its better then Evelyn's. I laughed at that part. I felt so bad for Moze because she had to work with Loomer, Crony, and Buzz. Finally Buzz spoke! It looked amazing when they finished it. The old lady, I think her name was Rose, was funny how she kept hitting poor Ned in the head with a broom then how she almost hit him with a cane. Well, overall the episode wasn't that bad but it wasn't amazing. I still liked it though.moreless
