Episode Summary

Mutts In A Name:
When Chazz finds out that Puppy is sad all the time, he decides to give her a name. But later, Puppy ended up getting sick, which Chazz though was due to an identity crisis (she actually ate part of Kira's jigsaw puzzle). Noting that, the Rugrats started looking (litterly, around the house) for Puppy's new name. When it came to a point when Chazz started banging his head on the wall, he calls veterinarian Dr. Mutterly to see what the problem was. When the vet came over, the Rugrats thought that he would give the puppy a new name. But of course, his unorthodox methods leave something to be desired.

Hurricane Alice:
Howard prepares for a storm called Hurricane Alice, who says that it would turn their house "upside down". While he does that, Betty's old classmate, Sheila (who's also as brute as Betty) pays a visit, along with her daughter -- named Alice. When Alice makes a mess of things looking for toys (or anything that can be one), the Rugrats thought that she was "Hurricane Alice". Meanwhile, Betty and Sheila challenge each other in coffee-drinking, bench-pressing and arm wrestling. And I hope Sheila likes cheese sticks -- Betty isn't a great cook.moreless

      • Stu names the new puppy Spiffy. This cames from a combination of his parents names- Spike and Fifi.

      • The naming situation is even more unusual in the French version of the show ("Le Docteur Cabotin", debuted on France 3 on 2/24/2003) -- the puppy's new name was "Toufou", derived from "Tout Fou", meaning "all mad".

      • In reality, there were four Atlantic hurricanes named Alice -- 1953, 1954, 1955 (an off-season storm that was named in January 1955) and 1973. Alice was also the first named storm, when the US Weather Bureau began using names for storms in 1953. After 1973, the name was retired from the list. To be honest, I don't think Alice was used for a named storm in the Pacific (where hurricanes are rare north of Baja).
