I am talking late 80’s early 90’s . First let me apologize for missing a week. Now back to jelly shoes. Not sandles we had the slip on shoes as kids. While they where not comfortable even with socks we where walking with feet in cased in plastic hard plastic ain’t no jelly in those jelly shoes. I didn’t even want them but ppl kept buying me pairs and commercial directors as well as commercial castors loved when kids wore jelly shoes so mom often put them on me. My Irish dance teachers could always tell if I had been to audition or shoot because I walked a certain way after spent time in them compared to how walked after sneakers or rarity after we practiced in are Irish dance shoes. We practiced in socks a lot yes other dance teachers would cringe. The jelly shoes where painful and if mom forgot the socks I’d be left with shoe marks and exposed skin in warmer weather would be burnt.
This blog is going to be short. I succeed before 6 am in bruising my good arm it smarts. I don’t think I broke it. Then I get letter from SSI I qualify for a good sum of cash being disabled child of deseased person with disability aka my dad.
While this week was weak. Seriously. So coconut crisis Kwazii takes mini vacation coconut crab island .a coconut octopus steals coconuts it goes as expected.sunfish it was underwhelming Shellignton got out for change but I think captian was not being his brightest when they where dealing with heavy sunfish and bringing Dashi the second strongest.It was itchy sunfish causing accidents nothin exicting happened. I was expecting wow after last 2 weeks. I give cocnut crab a 77% and sunfish a 70% so.C and C-. The two weeks prior just had better episodes.
Spoilers ahead. So two 15 min episodes. Ep 1 the fox was back. They kind of acknowldged there error from long episode so that was weird. They rescued an empoir peguin mom. They get direction and while Dashi driving gup S an ice casem happens. Cap catches himself jumping out of it gup S was left ij casem. Peso almost falls into casem when they use stretcher as bridge. They get to gup I. Cap stood real close to Dashi a lot thru out this at times he didn’t need to. Obviously for safety of everyone Dashi crossed first and Cap last in case of catch needing to happen. But the ending with Kwazii and Tweak was the best. Tiger shark it kind of ended more flately. It started out intresting with girls making a sandy cam find tiger shark shark at camera. Tweak drove gup b and crashed it trying to avoid tiger shark.peso cleans tiger sharks tummy out tweak feeds him carrots. Both where very enjoyable episodes. Just more to the first one
So we meet two new characters in this episode. They serve the plot. We also run into Peso’s cousins. The little one causes an issue. But I am getting ahead of myself. So we meet a new polar bear he knows Barnacles his name is not going to be revealed.When Captain Barnacles introduces him to Dashi thru computer he says a much needed information for the kids. Cap makes it known she is the computer person. The 2nd bear gets alert from station in antartic. Travel time. Run into Peso’s cousins. More travel. They find profodor who is an artic fox I couldn’t spell his name if I wanted to.They should’ve given him an easier name. They pull research station to safety. Here comes a little bit of a problem. Fine artic fox picked up sound of ice quake first but its been established Tweak has extremly good hearing. And that Dashi and Barnacles have hearing better the most of crew save for Tweak. Those 3 should’ve said they hear a faint sound but not entirely sure what it is.It just was contexual wrong if you know octonuats. Then they saved Peso’s littls cousin after ice bridge for peguins to cross the little guy dilly dallyed being impressed. He needed bandage after the fall. The girls did there job and tricked out the station over 8 weeks. I so knew that was going to happen it is now the gup I. It ends with fox being contected to the secondary polar bear via computer. Kwazii getting 2nd cup of saying he is ready for seconds on hot choclate before anyone else had and laughing.
I give this episode a B it is good just the hearing thing was weird and there was bizzare animation error during penguin rescue that keeps it being the best episode.
I had no plans to write anything todayand I read the most stupid sentence someone claimed big bird was supposed to be 4 uhm like no. Some of puppets ages are cleared and I won’t guess on Grover,cookie monster and bert and Earnie just the puppets that are clearly 7 or younger will reveal there ages.
Prarie Dawn is 7 it is very clear she is 7. I think Harry Monster is also but never comfirmed.
Big bird is 6 he has told us so. Telly is most likely also six. He has .mentioned monstergarden in the past. And when something upsets either big bird or Telly they have simmilar melt downs. I do not know for sure on Rosita but she hangs outaa lot with Telly or use to so probaly 5 or 6.
Snuffy is 5.
Zoey 4 1/2 this information is everywhere ss related.
Abby and baby bear are 4 they have said so.
Elmo is 3. And that is how he always tells us.
Alice(snuffy’s little sister) 2.
Curly(baby bears lil sis) and Natasha about118 months old.
I have a confirmed confirmed age on Alice because of the epiode they did on the snuffle 2’s but can’t give exact age on like Rosita because it is pretty ambigious just indicated close in age to Telly but her not being from ss adds a condrum.. Idk how anyone ever thought big bird was 4.
I enjoy Arthur and don’t care that I am 31 years old. However I am not going to be so nice to Arthur Reed and his crew as I have some problems now. I am not against characters who don’t age but quit the tease of oh they are moving up and next season 0 change this isn’t first time Arthur did it.I find it kind of weird when characters are in school and don’t age just a personal pet peeve. Just once every 10 to 15 years let characters grow up 1 year if have long running show. Its not something shorter running cartoons need to adress.
Arthur for being 8 he sure wines a lot.Buster does to. The thumb sucking episode was ridicoulous that should’ve been D.w or one of her friends with that issue not what we got.
Francine is such a bossy boots. How does Muffy have any friends with way she acts.and how did she end up in a public school.
Brain is a a good character. He is relatively normal for a 9 year old in class of mostly 8 year olds.I wish they could explore more with him and Lydia. She was introduced specifically for Brain aka Alan love intrest.
Binky I don’t get him its like he has 2 diffrent personalities.
Ladonna bangs head but she is good match for Buster. I don’t get why she was brought in. Sue Ellen is new kid and can’t have been there that long sense still in same grade. We will get to Ladonna’s brother in a bit.
Sue Ellen she is a good character but grr did they miss an opportunity with Math episode.why not take this chance to teach kids about discalcuya(math learning disablity) instead it ends in oh we are all Math people. Not true a calculator is my best friend in a grocery store.
Apparently kid named Maria in ratburn’s class who stutters. I think that’s why missed oppertuinty with sue ellen pisses me off more. They adressed Dyslexia with George brought in Carl for Autism.
Not much to say about George and Fern or Jenna.
D.w has really grown a lot as character and her starting K would be good thing. Her friends are a bunch of nuts save for Shake I actually liked that episode as D.w got to learn and Brain showed a lot of patiences with helping her I would have liked a dash of sue ellen in it or not use her va in song but it is still a terrfic episode. What was terrible episode was Budd at 4 being made fun of by the girls for not being able to tie his shoes at 4. Age 6 to 7 is average age a child learns to tie own shoes I was 10 before it clicked for me.Bud is annoying. Thats just it. Tibble twins where even known to be trouble by characters from start. Bud isn’t memt to be trouble but is far more annoying.Emily is a priss and James one day will kill someone in future.
Baby Kate and her new friend Binky’s little sister are baby geniuses. It was funny when Arthur and Binky knew they where talking to each other but not what they where saying. And at least in future baby Kate won’t be mute she has a few words.I. not going to discuss any of the 4th graders they exists for plot convience. Just my thoughts. Let D..w start K. Baby Kate turn 2. The 3rd graders become 4th graders makeling 4th graders 5th graders.and they missed an oppertuinty and mixed some stuff up.
