The Davis family is off to Spain (actually the studio backlot), and naturally there's a little romance and adventure--though not enough to fill three episodes! Instead of Buffy or Jody finding puppy love, it's Cissy once again, here being courted by a tour guide with a secret in his past. Uncle Bill finds a senorita of his own, but Mr. French has to play tourist along with the kids, whom he loses when they go to change buses (seems a left-behind Mrs. Beasley is the culprit!). The Spanish sets and extras are pretty well assembled, and it's fun watching Buffy and Jody attempt to fend for themselves (they sleep underneath the hay in a farmhouse and snitch carrots in the morning), but the clever lines and laughs are at a bare minimum. Uncle Bill hardly gets to squire his lady-friend around Spain when the drama hits the fan--and he, Cissy and Mr. French all get stuck at the police station waiting for word on the missing twins. I think two episodes of this would have been sufficient...
