    Awwwww, so cute and silly! Looks like something I would’ve loved to have seen on a show back in the day as a little filler between stuff!

    My favorite part was how Scott didn’t obsess over getting the gumballs in the blue machine bouncing around correctly as he jiggles with laughter. Focus on story and character – nicely done!

  • My day is made.
