So we actually got BALANCING ACT this week, instead of MANGO'S MAINLAND HOLIDAY as I originally saw on my TV listings ... and last week was JEWEL's JEWEL CHEST. Anyone watching the new episodes? What do you guys think?
Banana really liked seeing Prairie Dusty Trails having a major role in BALANCING ACT.
I loved Balancing Act. I had never heard of or seen Prairie Dusty Trails before, but I really liked her as a character along with Peanut's role in the episode.
I like episodes like these that show the characters are just like us. I did the same as Rosy when I used to try riding bikes. Now though, so much to do and not enough time to do it in.
--- I very much enjoyed Jewel's Jewel Chest. Another fun Jewel-themed episode - and so many of those already! I liked how everyone acted in the episode whenever Jewel tried to avoid (non-organizing) work.

XANA Banana says her favorite moment in "Jewel's Jewel Chest" is when Jewel is steering Patch's boat! We also got a big laugh when we first saw Patch and Spot hanging out together on the boat, as we had noticed the little connection they had made to each other at the end of "Tower of Treasure" ... remember how she seemed to "get" his system of (dis)organization? It was good continuity to have them hanging out together again!
Hey, we noticed you got your first Lalaloopsy doll!! Congrats!!

My favorite moment with "Jewel's Jewel Chest" I already previously mentioned, but my favorite moment with "Balancing Act" was how Rosy would think up some new reason why she couldn't ride the bike every time she met with Peanut, and there were quite a few of those times.
Hey yeah, I totally forgot about "Tower of Treasure". I can definitely see that now!
Thanks for the congratulations! I'm not about to pick up a collection of these though...
I think the doll's cool, though my little sister isn't that interested in a collection.

KNIGHTY NIGHT was one of Banana's and my favorite episodes so far! Sir Battlescarred's character was great, and the whole story was very "intense" for a lala episode! LOL Those of us who are fans of the dolls first, are probably wondering what happened to Lady Stillwaiting But Sir's little storyline with Jewel worked well for the show.
So, it seems Belly Laugh has been replaced by Trunk Show given that the channel guide no longer lists Belly Laugh with any possible airtime.
I watched Trunk Show a couple weeks ago and I really liked it! I found Peanut's voice hard to listen to, though.
Regardless, I liked the look of Pillow wearing that nice red outfit and having to be taught how to be a ringmaster. It was a really cute episode.
Finally, I also watched Mango's Mainland Holiday, which was really good. I liked how the conflict of the episode was on [not] forcing your manners/customs on someone else and thought Mango had a really good design.
Knick Knack Knock Knock should be airing in a few days. I wonder what that episode will show us...
Unfortunately, my cable provider Suddenlink ran into a carriage dispute with Viacom, so I am no longer able to watch either this show or any of the others which air on Viacom-owned channels (namely, PAW Patrol on Nickelodeon, Spongebob seasons 1-3 on Nickelodeon, etc.).
I have no idea if or when Viacom and Suddenlink will reach an agreement and reinstate access to those channels. Hopefully soon, however at the mean time my channel guide is missing about a dozen channels.
