  • That weird Mr. Crane...

    Mr. Crane is so creepy. I think it's cause he's voiced by the person who voiced face. that was pretty creepy.

    And this show is pretty creepy.
  • Two great episodes.

    Watchbird Alert, I think, is a really good episode. When I first saw it, I loved it. The Cranes are 2 of my 3 (tied with Scootch) favorite characters. Cap'n Crane was just awesome during this episode from what I remember. I only wish I could remember it more fondly, because I still remember thinking it was an awesome episode the last time I saw it, almost 2 years ago, when I still had access to my copy of it.

    Final Episode Grade: A

    Flick's Hat Trick was about Flick not wanting to take his hat off because he wants to wear it everywhere--even to sleep. I don't really like this episode as much as the previous one, but it's still a good one, nonetheless.

    Final Episode Grade: B+

    Overall Episode Grade: A-moreless
  • My favourite episode

    This is my favourite episode of the series. I suppose it might be a tad biased, considering I'm a huge fan of the Cranes, but I really do love this episode (or at least the first part - it was split into two parts in the UK, and I can't remember the second, so it's the first part I'll be reviewing).

    Basically, Cap'n and Connie Crane's house falls down, and the Otters invite them to stay at their house. At first, PB&J think it's cool, but they change their tune after spending a day with Cap'n. He is OBSESSIVE about safety; whilst some of his rules make sense (like how it's not safe to ride your skateboard in the house), he also cancels their picnic because it might rain (there is only one cloud in the sky) and he doesn't let Butter stack boxes because "something might happen". Eventually, the Otter kids get fed up with this, but they then realise that Cap'n Crane only did this because he's a Watchbird, and watching out for people is his job. Then they team up with their neighbours to help stand the Cranes' house back up, as a way of thanking them for watching out for everyone on the lake. Like I said earlier, I am a big fan of the Cranes, so that does play a major part in how much I liked this episode. I chose it as 'character development' because we do find out a lot more about these characters - or at least one of them (Connie Crane was out of the way throughout most of the episode).moreless

      Cap'n Crane: How can we ever thank you?
      Peanut: You don't have to.
      Jelly: That's what friends are for. But we'll sure miss not having you as houseguests.
      Cap'n Crane: Thanks, Jelly. We loved staying with ya', but it sure will be good to be home again. (He starts to open the door.)
      Ernest: Wait, Cap'n! We aren't quite finished yet! (The new treehouse collapses.)

      Butter: Me thwee.
