  • Cranky can lift Spencer and Harvey, but he can't lift Thomas.

    Cranky insults Thomas for being puny, so Thomas decides to put Cranky's strength to the test, eventually leading to Cranky lifting Thomas off the ground and resulting in his crane arm snapping, and leaving Thomas dangling in mid-air.

    The series has finally taken its toll into CGI animation. Although it is looked down upon by so many fans, I find it entertaining and it provides a way for those silly model goofs to be avoided.

    This episode was a good one for its season. It's about time Cranky got a good lead role. He hasn't had one since Season 6's 'No Sleep for Cranky', although he did have a rather noticable one in Season 11's 'Hide and Peep'. It was good to see him and Thomas in a good rivalry, but the storyline was pretty weak. It had that basic 3-step system, where the 3rd step is always where the largest mistake is made and a major problem occurs. Well, for any new viewers who find that boring, don't bother watching the rest of Season 13. It's all the same.

    Though, I don't understand. Has Cranky grown weaker with age? He lifted Harvey in Season 6 with no trouble, aside from some complaints and groans. And in 'Misty Island Rescue' which follows this very season, Cranky lifts both Spencer and Thomas with no trouble. Yet, as apparent in this episode, Cranky's crane arm snapped when Thomas was lifted. If anyone could explain this obvious error, please do so.

    Considering the season, I think this episode was pretty entertaining, but I think it could have been a bit better. It got rather repetitive at some points.moreless
