Sigmund and the Sea Monsters 1.3 – Dibs

I wasn’t quite as taken with this episode as I was the previous two. The story’s about Sigmund misunderstanding the concept of “dibs,” thanks to Johnny’s incompetent explanation of the rule, leading to a rash of petty thefts of very silly items around Dead Man’s Cove. But this should have escalated into mayhem, and it doesn’t. Johnny’s solution to the problem is agreeably amusing, but at its core, this is a story about paying attention to little brothers. I’d appreciate a little more lunacy before giving us a heavy-handed moral.

On the other hand, while David Arquette’s Captain Barnabas is the lone note of lunacy in this story, it does lead to a climax that our son enjoyed, in which all his neighbors humor him by “agreeing” with him using “air quotes.” I’m not entirely sure that Arquette’s performance is entirely in sync with his much more natural co-stars, but it can lead to some funny moments.
