Friday Cat Blogging
That sounds like a fun show, Charles. Now you've got me imagining Juniper Lee/Harry Potter crossover fan fiction. (I'm sure it already exists.)
If it's a choice of Harry Potter vs. Juniper Lee, stick with Harry. But one episode caught my interest and I watched it through. A fast-talking mummy with a Texas accent convinces the monsters of Orchid Bay City that they are in grave danger from bat otters. They are in a panic, and are forking over everything they have for shoddily made goods to protect themselves.
As it turns out, bat otters are hardly a threat because they so close to being extinct that no one has ever seen one. However, because Juniper Lee is snooping around, the Texan has to find the last surviving bat otter to protect his business. He keeps it locked in the dungeon. Juniper breaks into the dungeon and discovers that the bat otter is actually a cute, lovable creature. She takes it to the surface, where the Orchid Bay monsters can't refrain from cuddling it. It's totally harmless (or is it?)
What interested me was the parallel to a certain fast-talking Texan of our acquaintance. "Rocky and Bullwinkle" it isn't, but it's the closest thing this generation will see.
