Episode Summary

Measuring Up: Charles' mom and dad tell him how much he's growing, and he can't wait to get to school to share the big news with his friends. When Mrs. Jenkins' students display full-size cutouts of themselves, it's clear that Charles is the smallest in the class. Charles soon learns that "smallest" is a relative term when Doris, the biggest in the class, reveals a secret.

Lost and Found: Yoko is delighted when she learns about a set of figurines that once belonged to her grandmother called the Netzke Family. Her mom reluctantly agrees to let her take them to school, so long as she takes good care of them and doesn't let anyone else play with them. Yoko follows her mom's rules and presents the figurines for In the Spotlight. At the end of the day, Yoko discovers that the figurines have disappeared from her cubbyhole. At first, everyone thinks that they just got lost, but when a Lost and Found Day fails to turn them up, some begin to think that the figurines may have been taken.moreless

  • Another great installment.

    Measuring up and Lost and found were two great episodes that I really enjoyed watching. The characters and plot twists were really good which leads to many off screen questions.

    "Measuring up" was a really good episode for Charles. It was nice to see how excited he was to be growing up though it was kind of sad to find out that he was still the smallest child in Mrs. Jenkin's class. This episode also held a great plot twist for Doris and her height especially when the episode leads back to Doris's life at home.

    Lost and Found was the better of the two episodes, and was a great episode which dealt with Yoko. At the beggining we find out about Yoko's grandparents and their hobbies out in Japan. There was also quite a bit of conflict in this episode when Yoko's precious antique dolls went missing with no trace. It was sad to see the class search and find no trace, leaving Yoko to believe some one had taken them. I was glad to see everything turn out ok. All though this episode really had a poor ending with no true answer to who had really taken the dolls.moreless
  • This was a pretty good episode. By the way im only reviewing "Lost and Found".

    This was a good episode with a good main idea. I felt sorry for Yoko when she lost her Nesca (dont no how to spell it) Fammily and how sad she was. It was also funny when the Franks said they found them but they really only found the broken pieces of thier car. The solution to this episode was sorta lame but it made up for it in other areas. It's fun to guess who took the Nesca Fammily I think Timothy did because he left the peppermint heart in the box that said sorry and he also put peppermint hearts on Yoko's Valentine. This makes it funny at the end when Timothy's like I wonder who put them back and he's sorta smiling.moreless

    • Charles: What's it like to be big?
      Doris: I wouldn't know.
      Charles: But you're the tallest in the class.
      Doris: There are other times when I feel small. I'm the smallest in the family.
      Charles: Really?
      Doris: Uh-huh. I'm even too small to ride the bumper cars at the fair. I have to watch my brothers drive by and stick their tongues out at me. They call me a shrimp. It makes me so mad.
      Charles: I don't like being called a shrimp either. If I see your brothers sticking their tongues out, I'll tell them to stop it.
