Episode Summary

Mr. Big's Big Plan:
Mr. Big and Leslie are back, and this time, Mr. Big is running for mayor. Mr. Big says he's reformed, and makes false promises to the townspeople in order to steal the election. WordGirl must find out his evil plan and save the city before Mr. Big wins the election and takes over.

Vocab Bee:
Becky/WordGirl enters a vocabulary bee, but finds herself only to be distracted by the Butcher's imperfect plot to rob the bank. Meanwhile, as she continues to sneak away from the Vocab Bee to see what the Butcher is up to, Todd "Scoops" Ming, the school reporter, is growing suspicious of her.

  • the Mr. Big episode is a good one, but I didn't care much for Vocab Bee

    In Mr. Big's Big Plan, WordGirl is awarded with her 27th key to the city when she learns Mr. Big is challenging the Mayor's re-election. Mr. Big wants to use his mind control ray, but the batteries have run down, so he resorts to Plan B, promising to do whatever people want. WordGirl knows he's up to no good, but she's frustrated because making campaign promises you can't keep isn't illegal. A clever episode, with a nice unexpected twist near the end. I didn't care much for Vocab Bee. Becky is a contestant in a word definition contest, but she has to run off every now and then to check up on the Butcher's activities. That makes Scoops suspect Becky is actually WordGirl. You can guess the outcome early on, and the Butcher subplot doesn't go anywhere. As the Butcher points out at the end, WordGirl didn't stop his plan, his plan just fell apart. You get the impression the writers have run out of ideas for the Butcher- this is the 2nd cartoon where he's in the background- the other was "Super Grounded". Maybe they need to team him up with Chuck and the two can create a Prime Rib Sandwich of Doom or something.moreless
