Episode Summary

Charles The Athlete Written by Brian Lasenby The Franks can't help noticing that Charles finished last place in every event for school sports day. They mistakenly think that Charles must feel bad about his athletic abilities and take it upon themselves to be his personal trainers. When they put him through a rigorous exercise program, Charles repeatedly wanders away and works on another project. The Franks assume he's discouraged about his progress, but Charles is up to something. Be My Valentine Written by Paddy Granleese Timothy has made a secret valentine for Yoko while Charles made one for Lilly. On the other side Yoko made one for her special friend, Timothy and Lilly created a secret valentine for Charles. In a comedy of errors, no one receives the correct valentine. Timothy and Charles did not know if Lilly and Yoko would like their gifts so they exchange their valentines while Lilly put Yoko and hers in the wrong boxes. In order to sort things out, their secrets must be revealed because the gifts that were for their original purpose, was better than what they had received.moreless

  • Review on: Charles the Athlete

    A very lame storyline makes for a lame and pointless episode that is definitely a waste of time. Frank and Frank try to train Charles to become more athletice when he places last in every activity at a (supposedly; another flaw: unspecified as to what the kids are doing and why) picnic (?). Instead, Charles keeps running off with the materials Frank and Frank are using to help him.

    In the end, the materials are used to build a spaceship Charles has been working on and Frank and Frank forget all about training Charles. A pointless episode I wouldn't recommend to anyone.moreless
