    Ducking Out on Valentine's Day

    This episode is about Flick not getting a valentine from the Snooties when everyone else does. Because of this, he feels left out, but hides his feelings and says he doesn't want valentines.

    It's just your average episode, nothing too special for me. The song, "You Just Can't Hide Your Heart," was a little weird in terms of some of the lyrics, but it's still a good, catchy song, nonetheless.

    Episode Grade: B-

    Opal and the New Otter

    This episode is where you see Pinch's cousin, Ricky. A great premise, if you ask me, but why leave Scootch out of it? It's a thing that has left me confused since the day I first saw it (which was almost 10 years ago). Oh well. On to the summary.

    This episode is where Jelly doesn't take the time to get to know Ricky. When Opal sees how she was acting, she tells PB&J the story of how she met Ernest. It is revealed through the story that Opal acted the same way when she first saw Ernest.

    The rest of the episode is fairly good, but I still believe the addition of Scootch to this episode would have made it even better.

    Episode Grade: C+

    Final Words:

    Well, there's not much more to say here. I don't really mind watching these episodes. It's neither a good nor a bad choice to watch them if you have or ever get a copy of them.

    There's definitely enough educational value for kids in them (most of it is in the latter of the two episodes), so kids can totally learn from it.

    Final Grade: C+ = 7.5moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • (Mayor Jeff is giving direction to the Cranes, who are holding a large banner with a heart in their beaks)
      Mayor Jeff: Okay. Higher! Higher! (Flick peeks at the action from behind a bush) That's perfect! Well, hello there, Flick. Did you come to help us get ready for the big picnic?
      Flick: (Folding his arms behind his back) Uh, no, Mayor Jeff. I, uh, can't. Gotta go...home. Right now.

    • Jelly: Well, after all his worry, Flick got Valentines from everybody!
      Peanut: And everybody got Valentines from Flick.
      Jelly: But it sure would have been easier if he hadn't tried to hide what he really wanted. You know, Flick, there's an old song that says it all.
      Flick: Huh?
      Jelly: (singing) You can't keep the sun from risin' / You can't keep good friends apart / Like a breeze that blows, everybody knows / You just can't hide your heart.

    • Flick: (looking at himself in a handheld mirror) So, Flick, can you go to that picnic? No way. Not when everybody else will get Valentines and I won't.

    • Pinch: (singing) Will you be my Valentine? I'll be yours and you'll be mine.
      Flick: Hey! My beak just sneaked the smell of cookies.
      Pinch: Valentine cookies. (She gives her Mom a hug.) My Mom's helping me make 'em for the big picnic tomorrow.
      Flick: Warning! Important warning! Ya' better not be making any for me!
      Pinch: What did you say?!
      Flick: I said don't give me cookie Valentines. Or paper Valentines, or wooden Valentines, or any other kinda Valentines. (slams her door)

    • Peanut: I don't get it. There's gotta be a Valentine for you.
      Flick: (scoffs) Right. There's "gotta" be. But we checked six times and there isn't.
      Peanut: Sorry, Flick.
      Flick: Hey, it's no skin off my beak. Who cares?
      Jelly: You care.

    • Ernest: Morning, Ootsie! Good morning, Bootsie!
      Ootsie: You're so right, Mr. Otter.
      Bootsie: It is a good morning.
      Ootsie: To do us a favor.
      Bootsie: We want all our little friends to get our gigantic Valentines. But we're off a luxury ski trip to Mount Poodle. So could you keep them here until the big Valentine picnic?
      Ootsie: And then pass them out?
      Ernest: Well, I'd be happy to.
