  • Mayor goes nuts; The family steals.

    Hot Air Buffoon: Well I loved this short, and it was great installation to season three. First of all, my favorite chracter, Ms. Bellum is in this episode and she is so caring for the professor! I love her! She is also very funny in this epsiode. I like how we see the mayor's true colors.

    Ploys 'R Us: Sort of a reuse recylced plot. Didn't Blossom already learn this lesson when she was stealing back in season two? She said sorry, and does it again? That is so not Blossom. Anyways, other than that I like how the Professor teaches the girls not to steal ever again... again.moreless
