So there this is this new Animated program that started in August on Cartoon Network, based on this new Hot Wheels sub-line Battle Force 5. It is Power Rangers-esque because they were different solid color uniforms and battle animal-like creatures in color-coded vehicles. Only thing is that they don't have transformation devices. The interesting thing is that their female cohort is African-American, and she doesn't wear Pink or Yellow, she wearsGreen. I think that is great, it is unprecedented for an American series. And no one has said anything about it! Her name is Agura Ibaden and she drives an ATV. She has an action figure, not as many of the red one leader but as much as the other 4. As we Tokusatsu fans know, Tomica Fire Rescue has a female in Green armor. Hope this translates to Super Sentai soon (we have gotten close with Gekiranger's Mele, I love her, but I see her more like a villain).
Trini shows off her doll collection for Hobby Week, making Rita angry because she never got to play with dolls. Ticklesneezer, a doll that belonged to Trini's mom, is a collector and is made alive by Rita, to collect things with his magic bottle. He shrinks Trini and Billy in Trini's car into the bottle. And then it all turns out to be a dream.
Episode Review: Why does a high school have a whole week dedicated to show and tell? Doesn't make sense. Back then, we believed anything. Anyhoo, the Ticklesneezer doll was one ugly doll, and we had to be staring at him---and the revision makes him have fire eyes. It was an interesting episode and for a dream, it was like a regular episode, maybe that is why Trini stayed asleep for so long, she thought it was for real. When I first saw the episode, I thought why did she have such an ugly doll.
Looking at the schedule, "Happy Birthday, Zack" is next week and then three weeks of nothing until March 27 where "No Clowning Around" airs and then in April, the "Green with Evil" saga. But they are skipping three episodes: "Love, Peace, Woe," "Dark Ninja," and "Power Punks." I would have rather they skipped this one and "Big Sisters" for "Power Punks" and "Love, Peace, & Woe," love those episodes.
