If you haven't experienced Handy Manny yet then I can recommend you do so! First launched by Disney in 2006, this helpful handyman is a great role model for kids of all ages. As a parent I find it refreshing to have a positive character for my young boys to watch. Like all Disney programs for children there is no violence but what I enjoy the most is the fact Manny doesn't use computers. It is good to see a show that teaches the benefits of gaining real world skills and the rewards of having a trade.
No matter how old the child is they can still take part. My youngest cant keep the page steady so I stick it down with some sellotape and she can then take part!
Manny and his talking team of tools will help anyone at a moments notice although his next door neighbour Mr Lopart is too proud to ask for help and always gets himself embarrassed by his efforts! Pride before a fall as they say.
Drac takes Dennis to his childhood summer camp, Camp Winnepacaca, where he learned to hone his vampire abilities and discovers that the camp is safer than it was when he went there. Drac stubbornly believes Dennis is a “late fanger”, so he hurls Dennis from a tall, unstable tower to pressure the boy’s transformation into a bat. Dennis, however, does not transform and Drac has to fly down and rescue him at the last second. The stunt is filmed by the campers and uploaded to the Internet, which eventually reaches Johnny and Mavis. Mavis angrily transforms into a bat to Johnny and Mavis back to Transylvania. Drac and his friends reach the hotel a couple of seconds after Mavis. She confronts her father for putting Dennis in grave danger and his inability to accept that he is human. She states she will move out of the hotel after Dennis’ 5th birthday the following Wednesday. Drac hangs his head with deep guilt after Mavis tells him that he may have let humans into the hotel, but hasn’t let them into his heart.
