While not quite a amazing as the brilliant first segment, this was still pretty darned enjoyable. It looks like the RPG-like world rules are being established and perhaps Amethyst will level up soon to face off with Dark Opal. The hot pepper gag was also pretty fun. Still loving the animation and look of the series. I hope this lasts for more than just 6 shorts.

With a name like Tropical Trouble, I was hoping (believe it or not) for Hula. To no avail. Instead I was treated to an island adventure with a lipstick wearing gorilla that thought Baby Plas was her baby. In the end, Baby Plas delivered the sad gorilla a doll. Nice sentiment, but there is something a little creepy about this episode. I mean, did the gorilla actually have a baby that was off getting eaten by a lion or something while she thought it was in her care?

Baby Plas battles a stray dog at a drive in movie. The baby got sucked through the movie projector in what could have been a horrible tragedy, but in the end, baby and mutt were fast friends in yet another terrible outing. 3 to go!-----

Although the idea of seeing Superman of the animated series again always sounded good, Supes' foray to Dakota was a mixed bag. Again, on paper an encore of Toyman in Toys in the Hood sounded like a winner but instead we were treated to a bunch of fights between Superman, Static, and giant clowns and monkeys. Hardly the stuff of legends. Still, for Superman diehards, this Static Shock crossover is worth tracking down.
Check back next week for another chapter in The Super History of Superman.
This pretty terrible escapade followed the Baby Plas contest formula where Baby Plas ends up winning by cheating. In this case, after crashing a birthday party he apparently scored a kiss from Alice in Wonderland. Well done Baby Plas, you have now gotten more onscreen action than your dad!

I admit it, I liked this episode. Baby Plas caught daddy sleepwalking and had to protect Plastic Man from various dangers. It was reasonably cute and I could actually see one of the modern DC Nation era shorts with a similar plotline. Bravo baby! As for the separate beds... where did Baby Plas come from?-----

Plas and Penny went out on a date and amazingly they actually hired a babysitter, though not a very good one. I don't know why they let Baby Plas roam freely down the street,even on Halloween, but they don't trust him home alone. In any case, the babysitter and the Baby had a squabble over what show to watch on the TV. Oh Baby Plas... The sitter finally gave in only for the baby to fall asleep. Classic.
