Episode 3 |”The Wolf of Wharf Street”

Brief Synopsis (Spoilers Ahead):

Despite their complaints, Linda is going trick-or-treating with the kids on Halloween night. Local news is reporting (supposedly) that a wolf is patrolling the area, and Linda would be mortified if her children were devoured.

Linda spends the entire episode attempting to persuade the kids that she is not only a mother, but also a fun mother. It’s humorous to see an authority figure taking a group of young children on a perilous wolf hunt on Halloween night, and it’s definitely a Linda thing to do. The party tracks the wolf to its frightening cave in a tangled pile of dead branches, aided by recurring figure Randy the videographer. Fortunately, it turns out to be the lost Alpaca from the petting zoo.

Meanwhile, Bob is certain that Teddy is the wolf due to hallucinations brought on by painkillers. He flees into the night after tying his babysitter to a table, where he meets the real Wonder Wolf, Felix’s freed pet who reportedly like pineapple pizza.

Everyone is gathered in the Belcher’s living room at the end of the episode to relive the evening’s events. And, hey, maybe the kids did have a good time with mom. (“We had a good time around you,” Gene adds.)

Our Opinion:

Linda throws herself into trouble while attempting to prove that she is still cool. While this episode didn’t break any new ground for the series, it was nonetheless a delightful Halloween special – as humorous as I’ve come to expect from the program, with a dash of October spookiness thrown in for good measure. Both plots were engaging and included a number of amusing character moments, such as Louise’s bartering with Randy and Gene’s admiration for whoever created that pile of feces.
