Inquiring Minds Want to Know

Pete is a cat. Pete is the arch-nemesis of Mickey, Donald and Goofy. But, I will say this - he is not a bad person, he just makes bad choices. Usually, in the end, he does what is right. Clearly, Pete just wants to be loved, is that so wrong? Anyway, I have had a lot of inquiries about Robbie's fave character Pete and here he is. This is him in the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Easter special. He is dressed like Mickey (because he didn't think he was invited to the Easter party - see - he just wants to be loved) so that he can take over the clubhouse. Unfortunately, he doesn't know the magic words, so the clubhouse runs and hides - in many different locations - and Mickey must save the day.

On a non-Pete related topic, this morning, while mommy was getting ready/folding clothes/cooking breakfast, Robbie was watching "TiggerPooh". The current generation of this show has Tigger, Pooh, Darby and Buster (her dog) as sleuths who solve mysteries by think, think, thinking. It usually takes awhile for the sleuths to solve the problem (about 15 minutes which is the length of an episode). Anyway, the solution to this puzzle was obvious to Robbie, who, upon seeing the mystery, turned to me and said, "Tigger Bounce" - which duh was the answer, but we still had a good ten minutes to go until everyone arrived at Robbie's clear conclusion. Robbie kept telling them "Tigger Bounce" and eventually they heard my child's suggestion, because Tigger did indeed bounce. Basically - my child is better at problem solving than the super-sleuths! Columbo had better watch out!
