This is the last weekend for this show. Skippyjon Jones is a rambunctious Siamese kitten with big ears and an even bigger imagination. When his loving but exasperated mother puts Skippyjon in time-out, he starts to daydream. His imagination takes him far, far away to Mexico, where he pretends that he is a swashbuckling Chihuahua named Skippito Friskito. This silly, sweet tale celebrates the power of imagination. As Skippyjon would say… mucho fun! Enjoyed by ages 4+. PAM Review
