Down In The Dumps is the fourteenth episode of the third and final season of Livin' The Life With The Stereotypes, which originally aired on February 27, 2016. In this episode, Amelia is heartbroken after her beloved teddy bear, Mr. Bubbles, is flung into a garbage truck driven by Mr. Kendrick Walker (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson). This is also the episode where Thomas and Uncle Mitchell do not appear.

Plot

  • While Jill and Aunt Juliana are washing the prized boat, Amelia prepares for a tea party to Mr. Bubbles. However, as she leaves for the supplies, Sophia and Alya pretend to make Mr. Bubbles soar into the air, which leads the teddy bear into landing on a garbage truck driven by Mr. Walker. When Amelia returns a few minutes later, she is horrified to see that Mr. Bubbles is gone. Devastated and heartbroken, she lets out a loud, long and dramatic scream, which attracts Sophia and Alya's attention, as well as the Winterfords' Pet Cat Catherine. Jill and Juliana hear the commotion and race to find Amelia, who is crying very loudly. Jill explodes with anger and banishes Sophia and Alya to their rooms until further notice. Lolita, Amethyst, Charleigh, and Madeline have heard the news, and they must work with Betty, Lorry, Jolene, Ralph and Cole in order to prove that Sophia and Alya are innocent. Somehow, Cathy goes off to find Mr. Bubbles so that she can cheer Amelia up. Eventually, she finds the teddy bear in the dumpster, picks it up and goes back to the Winterford House. At the Pinewood Courtroom, Lolita and the others report to Judge Clements about Sophia and Alya's punishments. When Officer Valentine arrives with Mr. Walker, an indignant Judge Clements finds him responsible and sentences him to remain in jail because of his guiltiness. Later, Amelia is delighted when Cathy arrives with Mr. Bubbles, who is secretly filthy. Mrs. Winterford and Aunt Winterford decide to wash him up so that he can be spotless. Amelia is relieved to be back with Mr. Bubbles, and Sophia and Alya apologize to her for the incident. At nighttime, Sophia writes on her diary, knowing about what has happened since Mr. Walker is found guilty. She then closes the diary, turns off the lamp and goes to sleep as the episode ends.
