It all starts when Hank gets
a great idea. He comes up with a gig for the magic act. Really,
he does! They will be appearing at his twin cousins' birthday party.
But what it means is that they will have to miss the best movie on television.
It isn't on video and the TV station only shows it once a year. But
Hank has a great idea. They can tape it at the house and watch it
at night. All goes as planned. Hank sets up the vcr and the
magic show is a hit. But then disaster strikes. When they start
the tape, it soon becomes clear that he taped the wrong channel.
This leads to a loss of friendship. OK, I know what you are thinking.
What does this have to do with a pet iguana? You'll just have to
pick this one up to find out!
Zipzerís life does not always go as planned. While attempting to record
his best friendís favorite move, The Mutant Moth That Ate Toledo,
Hank is not able to keep up with the quickly moving program guide and tapes
the wrong show. This gives him an idea for the perfect science project.
He will invent a device that will slow down the scrolling so that even
slow readers can keep up. After taking apart the cable box he discovers
itís not so easy to put back together again. He hides the box under his
bed where his sisterís pet iguana makes her nest to lay her eggs. The pressure
is on as Hank struggles to fix the cable box before Dad notices it is missing
and mend his friendship with Frankie. Join Hank in a series of misadventures
which lead to a lot of laughs. (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
