What You Need To Know:

“Family Fun Night” begins with Boss Baby contemplating the plans of Bootsie Calico, the villain introduced in the “Cat’s in the Cradle” episode who wants to replace babies with cats. The Templetons decide to take the family out to a fun dinner but Boss Baby only wants to focus on Bootsie’s scheme.

During dinner, Boss Baby realizes that Bootsie has lured the family out to sway the public’s negative view of cats and turn more people away from babies. Bootsie’s right-hand man is a cat named Pineapple. Boss Baby and his team of Staci and Jimbo must lure Pineapple away from all the dinner guests to focus positive attention toward babies.

Boss Baby and his team throw clams that stick to restaurant attendees so that the cats will attack in order to eat. Their plans work, and they successfully restore order to people’s perception of babies on the Baby Corp radar. “Family Fun Night” ends with Tim apologizing to Boss Baby for saying he “ruined everything,” while the family laughs as they enjoy a movie together. However, in the last moments of “Family Fun Night,” Pineapple reveals himself from the purse of a local news anchor. Boss Baby will once again have to deal with this in the next episode.

The quality of “Family Fun Night” is excellent. At the heart of “Family Fun Night,” Tim urges Boss Baby to focus on family time rather than work. Tim’s lesson shows a strong moral, biblical understanding of the family as a team. It also stresses the need for family bonding. There’s a slight caution for younger audiences due to some light cartoon violence in “Family Fun Night.”
