Summary

Stu and Didi ended up taking Tommy to an important dinner at "Chez Ennui" with Mr. Mucklehoney (president of Mucklehoney Industries, a toy company), since Tiffany the babysitter (via telephone) and Grandpa have different plans (the babysitter's OTHER  goldfish died and Grandpa was going bowling with a friend of his named Louise). Tommy, however, has plans of his own, and proceeds to get loose in the resturant kitchen, causing absolute chaos. - Description from Klasky Csupo

Plot

Stu, accompanied by Didi, has a job interview with Mr. Mucklehoney (who is a huge joker), but their babysitter Tiffany calls so they have to take Tommy with them. Stu tries to impress Mr. Mucklehoney with his Helicoptertron, an unknown toy we do not see, Wall Walkers, Googley-Specs and Alice Alfalfa Sprout.

Tommy crawls into the kitchen and decides to 'make his own dishes' by adding different things into the food, such as dropping pieces of silverware into the crust of a pie, and adding a mix of onion powder, black pepper and tobasco sauce into Mr. Mucklehoney's soup.

The soup, in which Tommy put the aforementioned deadly combination of spices in, is taken to Mr. Mucklehoney and he chokes on it (he then thinks that the whole thing was a joke). Tommy under the spaghetti. Tommy wanders back to the table, Mr. Mucklehoney, still laughing, thought Stu put Tommy up to the 'joke'. they get billed for their damage and walk out of the building.

    There is a goof where the upper screen has a shade of lime green or yellow for a split second; it happens in a few clips. Each of them appears to be a jump/cut in the animation when this happens, implying there are deleted frames.

  • This is the first time Chuckie, Phil, Lil, Spike, and Angelica are absent. Tommy is the only baby to appear in this episode.

  • This is the first mention of Grandpa's "friend" Louise. Louise also happens to be the name of Grandpa's wife Lulu. However, when they meet again, Grandpa says he hasn't seen her in many years. This is possibly just another woman who happens to share the same name, or Grandpa's memory is just bad.
