    I didn't really like this episode at all. It seemed a little too odd to me. Not only was the little boy a major Kangaskhan freak but he also had some really odd looking parents. I just didn't find this episode very amusing, even when Team Rocket got involved it was still boring.

    A weird episode, one of the worst Kanto episodes. However, still enjoyable, 7/10. Weird, catching Pokemon not being allowed in the Safari Zone, which is meant for catching Pokemon...

    I'm glad Misty punched that kid in the head because what it said in the original was just rude & wrong.

    one the first episodes i saw but not my favorite. the ending was kinda disturbing and kinda stupid because the parents leave their apparently rich lives to live in a giant pouch . the father was an idiot and one of the worst character designs in the series but most of the humor was okay.

    Well, I can see why this episode is getting frowned upon. It wasn't interesting whatsoever. Although the concept was nice, it was very poorly executed and it became quite monotonous fast.

    This episode always got to me. Tommy's dad was hilarious. He was the reason why Tommy got lost in the first place. But, when everyone though Tommy's parents died, I cried along with Tommy. D:

    Something that has always bothered me about this episode: At the very beginning Jenny aims a rifle directly at Ash and James shoots tranquilizers into Pokémon with a tranquilizer gun and nothing happened! Yet the next epsiode has the old man aiming a little gun at Ash and causes an uproar, what's the deal with that? But yeah this episode was pretty damn crappy. Also mommy and poppa looked like something out of Dragon Ball

    I recently just re-watched this episode subbed. Amazing how much the humor has changed, never will you see today a boy ask a girl can he suck on her breast in Pokemon. :P

    This episode is one of the Worst and terrible Pokémon episodes I've ever seen, this episode's plot was a huge mess and the characters were crappy.


    Timmy/Tommy(whatever his name is) was so annoying, he was too obessed with Kangaskhan. I didn't like it when he threw his Boomerang on Ash.
    Then there was his parents, I didn't like them at all. How could Tommy's father drop his own child from the helicopter like that??? He weren't even worried for their child after that, instead he was careless. Tommy's mother's fruastation toward the father is understandable. The Kangaskhan were stupid too, how in the world they thought that Tommy is a Kangaskhan?!
    When I watched this episode for the first time, I really hated Misty for hitting Tommy on the head for mistaking her as a Pokémon. But after watching the japanese version of this episode and hearing Tommy's comment about Misty's breasts, I think her reaction to Tommy makes sense now. It's unbelivable that the writers put something like that on a freaking kids anime, what were they thinking?
    Overall, this episode is not worth watching in my opinion.

    Ending was interesting, but I can understand the fact "No, it can't turn dark and have his parents die" (wait a minute they can make a tits joke but no death?)
    I shed a tear when ash said at the end "They really loved him."
    Other than that, tommy's father was a moron.

    The kids parents, especially the father, were utter idiots in this episode.
    One of the weaker episodes during this saga.

    I cackled at Officer Jenny's Chansey hat; overall, I was glad that she was actually doing something here. I was surprised at Team Rocket's first Kangaskhan stealing attempt though. I thought Kangaskhan should've been able to break through a simple net. Anyway, Tommy and his parents being in a Kangaskhan pouch freaked me out.

    The only selling points for me were when Misty punched Tommy in the head to knock some sense into the kid and his dad getting knocked out (I really hated that guy and he deserved it), also Jenny's Chansey hat and Ash's reaction when she showed herself. Everything else was just plain bad, especially the baby Kangaskhan being injured. Good thing Brock was there to help it at least.

    Wow Tommy was such a brat that even tho he was orphaned, I didn't feel bad for him ha ha. His parents were odd but I liked seeing Kangaskhan as well as a jungle setting since it was different from most places we've seen in the show.

    Definitely not one of the best OS episode, but at least Officer Jenny arresting Ash for trying to catch a Chansey was funny enough. There were other funny bits imo too like Misty punching Tommy and Tommy crying thinking his parents died in a helicopter explosion.

    Meh I thought the kid's dad was funny and felt that TR was the worst part as usual.

    I personally liked their Kangaskhan mecha at least, plus seeing Tommy's parent's helicopter crash into the mecha and explode was kind of hardcore for this anime. ^^

    Tommy asking if Misty was a Pokemon was hilarious and his parents were great too like when we saw them in Kangaskhan's pouches. 7/10

    My favorite scenes from here were when Jenny thought Ash's friends were poachers + when Misty got angered by Tommy.

    I enjoyed this episode, especially the part when Satoshi, Takeshi, and Kasumi walked into the nature preserve, and how Junsa found them and thought that they were poachers. Tomo's bond with the herd of Garuura was cute, but his stubborn belief that he was a Pokemon himself got tiring after a while.

    I keep cracking up just looking at the antics Ash and friends get themselves into such as the three main characters freaking out when Officer Jenny says she overheated the engine and when Tommy mistakes Misty for a Pokemon instead of a person!
