This better not be one of your wild goose chases!
Francine Frensky, prizewinning reporter,
is here with colleague, Muffy Crosswire
on the trail of...the truth.
I see a lawnmower...a snow-shovel...a couple of bikes...
..and I have information concerning the President.
-..and a talking rake?
-BEHIND the rake, simpletons!
I'm putting myself in great peril, coming to you.
Is THAT why you're disguising your voice?
No, it's just a sore throat.
Now listen carefully...
Check the files at Lakewood Elementary.
Who cares what President Powers did in sixth grade?
The shocking deed happened in...
Do either of your have a lozenge?!
Great news, Mr President!
Your reputation as the smartest President since Jefferson
is entirely secure.
But SHE's out there!
The one person who knows my secret!
And if the Press ever gets hold of it...
...Ohhh! We could bring down the presidency!
This proves it!
President Alan Powers, aka The Brain, is NOT what he seems!
Oh! Hello, Alan.
Why are YOU here after school?
I was getting some things for the chess club.
Mrs Robertson's retiring?
Yes, after 30 years of teaching kindergarten.
I thought she'd like a display of photos from every year she taught.
Where did you get those photos?
From my private collection.
You never know who might become President one day.
Ahem...yes. Very interesting.
Speaking of which...I'm told you do shadow puppets.
I have trouble making a rabbit wearing a top hat.
Let's see... These fingers make the ears, of course.
For the hat... no, that's more of a Homburg...ah...
Just a little bit closer...
..top hat going round, except...
-Alan! You're still here.
I have sketches to show you of hat stands made in the 19th century
by the famous Oscar Houlindrope.
-You're the only one who'll find them as fascinating as I do.
There just HAS to be a way to get into that display case
before SCHOOL tomorrow.
Why? What's the big deal?
What's the big deal?!
I'm in TWO kindergarten photos.
I should be in YOUR 4th-grade class.
But you were held back. I know. Remember?
I've been keeping your secret.
And you'll KEEP keeping it, right?
Cos if my friends found out why I flunked kindergarten...
They're your friends! THEY won't care. Besides,
Who doesn't care about history?
If I told you King Tut had failed scribe school,
YOU'd care, all right.
I HAVE to get that photo, no matter what!
Of course! It's so simple!
A tunnelling machine!
MACHINE THUNDERS AND CREAKS
According to my calculations, I am now underneath the display case.
All I have to do is DRILL up...
OK. Bad idea.
Maybe I just need to close my eyes for a few minutes.
Aah! It's 9 o'clock!
OK, don't panic...
Class is out for recess,
so perhaps no-one's had time to...
Hey, look! In the kindergarten class before ours!
Brain would only be in two photos in a row if...
Hi! Did you hear what's for lunch?
Tacos! Mmm... Who's up for a game of kickball?
Why did you go to kindergarten TWICE?
I didn't... I mean, well...
Brain, did you FLUNK kindergarten?
Brain wasn't smart enough to pass kindergarten first time.
What's the big deal?
Us flunkers need to stick together.
It's actually "We flunkers", not "Us flunkers".
And of COURSE I was smart enough.
I was actually held back because...
-..well, because I'm a genius.
-Geniuses don't flunk!
-On the contrary...
Geniuses get bored easily in school, so they often do poorly....
Edison, Einstein... The list is endless.
Well, that's good enough for me. And it's good enough for you too...
ALL AGREE Makes perfect sense!
Phew! Thanks for the support.
Don't mention it.
Maybe at lunch you could give me one of your ta...cos?
You said being held back is a sign of...genius.
-I was held back! Last year!
And you said geniuses were bored at school!
Well, I'm...Mr Bored!
-Well... OK, but...
-I'm a genius!
Unless you're just making up that "genius" excuse?
Unless there's some OTHER reason you were held back?
O-Of course not. O-OK, gotta go. I have some...chess moves to study.
Hey, I'll go with you.
Us geniuses need to stick together.
Yeah. Yeah, remind me how many spaces that little horsie moves?
Geniuses play lots of chess, right?
Your king's outta there. Woo-hoo, baby! I win again!
I've never seen the leaping Ninja pawn head-chop used so...
-That's cos I just made it up.
Pretty geniusy, huh?
If I'm a genius, maybe I should have a cool nickname, something like..
"The Brain" is already taken... by me, remember?
What about "The Whizz Kid"?
Nah... I like "The Brain". It sounds smart.
We'll find somethin' else for YOU.
You want everyone to call you "The Oesophagus"?
Of course not!
but Binky... I mean, "The Brain"...
saw the word in my Anatomy book and thought it was perfect.
I wish you'd just tell the real reason you were held back!
They're going to find out sooner or later.
You haven't told anyone, have you?
I saw you talking with Muffy.
Were you talking about me?
You're getting paranoid, Oesophagus.
Paranoid? I'm not paranoid...!
Don't trust her! Never tell your secret!
Yeah! Us voices in your head are the ones you SHOULD listen to!
-You're the one who was held back!
Another D-minus for you, Mr Barnes.
Didn't you study for the test?
Tests-mest! What's it matter if I pass or not?
You might get held back, again!
So? If a genius can get held back once,
just IMAGINE how much a genius I'll be if I get held back
TWO years in a row!
You're in the presence of ultra super de-luxe genius.
32 times I've been held back, and I owe it all
to my good friend, The Oesophagus.
If you let Binky continue to think he's a genius,
he may NEVER graduate.
Yeah! You better show him it isn't ALL fun and games.
Hey, Brain! Wanna come over after school?
I suppose you want a rematch in Ninja chess?
I was thinking of something a LITTLE more challenging.
Why do I need genius lessons?
It takes more than being held back a year to be a genius.
As Thomas Edison said, "Genius is 1% inspiration...
"and 99% perspiration."
-Oh, I'm a genius, all right!
Then you won't mind some brain teasers?
So, did you get 3.906 as your answer?
No, but I spelled, "Hello" upside down!
I don't know, Oesophagus, maybe I'm not a genius after all.
I don't really like all this hard work, and...I'm starting to smell.
I'll say! When was the last time you changed your clothes?
Last week. You said Einstein always wore the same suit
so he could focus on physics, so I did the same thing.
I said, he wore the "identical" suit.
But he had a closet FULL of them.
Well, this is a little improvement on Einstein, isn't it?
There are other good reasons for being held back a year.
Like she's telling everyone my secret!
..and then, she changed into a wolf so Mouldy-Wart wouldn't find her,
Don't believe her! I'm NOT a cryer!
Someone held back cos he wasn't emotionally ready!
That's what she said, right?
She was talking about the latest Henry Screever book.
-Excuse me a moment.
Now EVERYONE knows.
You were held back cos you cried a lot?
Not because you were a genius?
Yes... Isn't it awful?
I STILL cry sometimes,
and being held back isn't the end of the world!
It's true! Getting held back actually helped me.
Within a year, my nickname was "The Brain".
Oh, now it's "The Oesophagus",
-Nah... You can have "The Brain" back!
I'm happy with Binky.
Great. You're comin' to MY house. Not more brain teasers?
No, just some good old-fashioned studying.
You're gonna pass that test.
When I go to 4th grade next year,
you're coming with me!
