Good Times, Bat Times

Episode #52: Good Times, Bat Times

Rating: ***

AD: 2/21/90
D: John Kimball, Bob Zamboni
SEd: Bryce Malek
W: Bruce Talkington
RSC: (none)
Voices: Corey Burton -- Bud
Jim Cummings -- Monterey Jack, Lou
Tress MacNeille -- Winifred
Pete Schrum -- museum guard, police chief, jail guard
Deborah Walley -- Foxglove

Notes:

Snake and spider parodies of Abbott and Costello.

Winifred (don't call her Freddy!!) can actually talk to animals, but she's a witch (or reasonable facsimile), therefore justifiable.

Unusual idea of another character getting a crush on Dale.

[The plant foxglove was a common element in traditional witch rituals.

Foxglove has become probably the most famous (and loved) one-shot character from the series, even garnering her very own fan website.

This episode has long been considered a turning point in the triangle of Gadget, Chip, and Dale by several fans. Chip makes two separate attempts to (apparently) confess his feelings for Gadget -- only to be accidentally interrupted by Dale both times. Dale, however, makes no attempts whatsoever to flirt with Gadget, which is a first. Those who advocate a Chip and Gadget relationship use this as supporting evidence that Dale's interest seems to have petered out, while Chip's remains as steadfast as ever. Gadget, of course, remains in her usual clueless state about the whole thing.

On the other hand, Dale does fight with Chip over Gadget's attention at the end of "Chorus", so the status quo seems to be unbroken, regardless of the implications of the episode.

Also, while the episode never portrays Dale as liking Foxglove as more than just a friend, several fans have gone on to support a relationship between the two, citing that Foxglove and Dale go well together. Interestingly enough, those who hold this belief are also those who usually support a Gadget and Chip relationship. -- MP]
