Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

From Mental Block

The series is a prequel, featuring the high school years of Flint Lockwood, the eccentric young scientist in the films. In his adventures, he is joined by Sam Sparks, a new girl in town and the school's "wannabe" reporter, along with Flint's dad Tim, Steve the Monkey, Manny as the head of the school's audiovisual club (among other professions), Earl as a school gym teacher, Brent still riding on his fame as from the sardine commercial, and Mayor Shelbourne, who serves as the school principal, and who wins every Mayoral election on the pro-sardine platform.

The show clarifies that when Flint and Sam met in their adulthood in the first film, it was not their first meeting. They first met and became friends in high school. In the first episode, Flint says that if Sam ever has to move away from Swallow Falls, he will invent a memory eraser, as she had moved around frequently and did not want the memory of another lost friendship to sadden her.

Episode 3[edit | edit source]

To help his dad with fishing, Flint invented a lure that sends out an attraction wave, which he intended to turn on when his dad uses the lure. But then Steve switches the attraction on the remote to people while the lure was attached to Flint's dad. Many townspeople are then hypnotized to be attracted to him, including the super intelligent female lead of the series, Sam Sparks. Flint makes Steve switch the remote again, causing the lure to attract something else, causing everyone hypnotized to wake up, wondering why they were chasing his dad.
