Notes:

What can be said vs this ep?  GREAT.

Parody of "kindlier/gentler" Bush theme superb.  Gadget's cheeriness and high spirits emphasized almost to the point of silliness (e.g. going thru dishwasher) -- for once she gets to use her emotions of anger for a good cause.

"Return" of Baby Herman (or someone who strongly resembles him) to action in a most unexpected venue.

Koonce and Wiemers return to "Beagle Babe" theme with Monrovia and Pomona.

Rangers call 911, but Spinelli ne comprend pas -- staying within parameters of the series.

Mr. Hancock a parody of Jim Backus.

Kind of interesting (in PC climate) that violence in Monty style is in a funny sense justified here.  Crimefighters SHOULDN'T have to be "kindlier and gentler."

1st and 3rd segs. start exactly the same way -- trashed Rangers patching selves up.

"Trash the Brat!" line reportedly changed to "Trash the Bum!" after complaints raised.  Never actually saw this.

[Another line change was "Let's shake that baby ‘till he rattles!" to "Let's shake that crook ‘till he rattles!".

Oh, and if you're reading this, Candy: Ha-ha! I'm not the only Rangerphile who thought this was one of the best episodes! Neener-neener-neener! [grin] - MP]
