The Luck Stops Here

Episode #20: The Luck Stops Here

Rating: ***½

AD: 10/6/89
D: John Kimball, Bob Zamboni
SEd: Bryce Malek
W: Kevin Hopps, LuAnne Wood
TP: Kevin Hopps
RSC: (none)
Voices: Corey Burton
Peter Cullen -- Monterey Jack, Mr. Gribbish, mover
Jim Cummings -- Clyde Cosgrove
Tress MacNeille -- rich woman with dogs, black cat, Kismet (or "Gizmat", depending on your TV speaker)


Basically a Gadget solo w/assists to Zipper & others.

One of the most successful attempts to combine Ranger "adventure" with character study: in this case, Gadget and Clyde Cosgrove (||! Alvin and the Chipmunks inventor Clyde Crashcup) who each learn something.

G is a "self-made" inventor who doesn't believe luck plays a role in doing things (though it actually does).  Learns that luck might play a role after all.

Cosgrove has carried belief in luck to an obsessive extreme -- even thinks G is a lucky omen and carries grass chunk home from park to look for four-leaf clover.  But his affection for "little mouse" G (though partially due to luck belief) helps him.  Will touch a chord w/anyone who thinks they have "lost the touch."

No real "mystery" here at all.  Just an attempt to help someone in danger of losing his job.

Kismet is the ultimate Fat Cat -- bloated, arrogant, spoiled without even FC's occasionally redeeming gentility.  (Celeb parody??)  MacN uses rich witch voice for her -- fitting.

[Rich lady with dogs would get the name Lady Richmore in "Bulge", only to marry/divorce and become another lady Clutchcoin in "Gorilla". Small city, eh?

Flower Street is located close to the Disney Studios; right next to their Imagineering buildings, from what I hear. -- MP]
