Teacher's Pet

Synopsis: Leonard is a 4th grader; his mother, Mrs. Mary Lou Helperman, is his teacher, and has been nominated for a teaching award. They plan a trip to Florida for the finals, but need to leave their dog, Spot, behind. Unknown to Mrs. Helperman, Spot has been masquerading as a boy, Scott, who is her star pupil. Spot wants nothing more than to be a real boy, and sees a way to this when mad scientist Ivan Krank appears on the Barry Anger show. Krank thinks he can turn animals into humans. Conveniently, his lab is right down the street from where the Helpermans are staying, so Spot, as Scott (and the rest of his family) convinces Mary Lou to take him along. Spot becomes a man, but discovers it's not everything he ever dreamed of after all.

jubilatious joy teaching you!

- And all of you.

- Uhh!

Oh, foo.

I promised myself

I wouldn't cry.

I'm just going to miss you...

all so much.


I told you a million times...

no hugs at school!

Oh, sorry, doodlebug.

I mean... dude, don't bug me.

Anyhoo, what yummy,

fun plans...

does everyone have

for this summer?

I'm going to my Granny Smith's

Granny Smith apple farm.

We're skatin' 24/7.

I'm grounded for a week for

hacking into Buckingham Palace.

But after that,

I get to visit my uncle Ivan...

who does strange

and disgusting experiments...

on animals and people.

I mean, who knows?

Maybe next time

I see you guys...

I'll be able to breath through

my neck like an amphibian!


You're so weird, Ian.

Wait'll you see me with gills!

Heh! Hottie!


Ahh! This summer.

Yeah, I know what I'm doin'-

just playin'

with my best friend.

Hey! Aah!

Yeah, best friends forever.

Calm down, angel eyes.

Now, poppy can't make

his announcement...

with your sharp little talons

in his Adam's apple!

Now, students

of the, uh, um...

Fourth grade,

Principal Strickler.

But soon to be fifth grade!

That's why I'm glad

I'm a principal.

None of this messy

student/teacher involvement.

They grow, they leave-

good riddance.

But I suppose it is

just that sort of...

bushy-gushy loving

teacher stuff...

that leads

to this announcement. Hmph!

Mrs. Mary Lou Helperman,

you have been selected...

as a finalist for

the Teacher of the Year award!


That's right,

it's the N.E.A.T.O.-

the National Excellent American

Teacher Organization award!

Way to go, Mom!

And that's not all,

Mary Lou Helperman!

As a finalist...

the Fala D. Roosevelt

Unified School District...

will be sending you

to compete...

in the final round
