    Beauty Contest:

    Stu and Lou want to win a fishing boat, so they enter Tommy in a Beauty Pageant, by disguising him as a girl and named him Tonya. Will the truth come out?


    Stu and Lou take Tommy to his first baseball game, but Tommy's balloon gets away from him, so he goes on an adventure to find it.

    I liked Beauty Contest more, it was funnier and had a better plot. Baseball, the sport, is boring (I think), and so an episode all about baseball certainly bored me. But, as a whole, both episodes were pretty great, so my final grade is an A+. Baseball was kind of boring but not too boring for my tastesmoreless
