Why,would you believe it, he's STILL dancing! He and the femfish are dancing in the empty, slightly darkened
bar. It's been an hour and-a-half in real time since we've last seen them, and Humpy hurries things along by asking "How about
going back to MY place?" And he's got this tone of voice that is SO CLEARLY hinting at IT. But then he transforms
...And so does the femfish, and she turns out to be a hunchback like him. The two are content with that.
So we cut back to Sharky and George walking up the lane to Dr. Jake's house. Apparently they were invited
over for dinner. Sharky is uneasy, but George is willing and trying to ease him into it. He almost succeeds, when Humpy opens
the door, giddily dancing and singing. I think that means he got laid.
So, How has the cartoon held up in my memory, now that I've refreshed it?
Well, it's middle-of-the-road. Sharky & George are exactly as I remember them, and that's wonderful.
But some of it is...lamer than I remembered. I suppose this is because I'm fifteen now, not three, and my tastes have matured.
Or maybe this episode just isn't one of the show's best. Sometimes it's a little hard to understand what the characters are
saying, because of weird accents (I just caught that Boss's voice actor also voiced the principal in What's With Andy,
long before he got all overused). The actual animation often goes between rubbery and choppy, but the facial expressions are
wild. With each downside, there's an up. My attitude towards this show has not changed.
How greatly I've missed you, Sharky and George.
OH! Now I remember, the city is named Seacago. Hit my right up the head, it did!
Anyhow, the full episode is here
