1x14 Twizzles Fizzles (November 23, 1996)


Roger and Sheryl leave Kenan in charge one weekend when they go out of town. The rules are simple: don't make a mess and take care of your father's beloved cockatoo, Twizzles. Within an hour of their departure, Twizzles expires and the boys are panicked. Searching Chicago for a replacement, the boys borrow $100 from Chris to buy a similar bird from Pet This! While transferring the bird into Twizzles's old cage, it flies out the window. In a desperate attempt to get the new Twizzles back, the boys spread birdseed all over the house and open all the windows and doors. When Roger and Sheryl come back early and walk inside the house they learn the birdseed attracted not only the Twizzles impostor, but half the fowl in Chicago.
