Team Bonding II: Cartoon Training

by Beth Epstein

"If you think the doughnuts are a good enough excuse for dragging us out of bed this early on a Saturday morning, you're sorely mistaken," Hunter said, taking a chocolate covered one.

Blake selected a doughnut as well, then took up residence on the faded brown couch-- next to Tori.

Shane and Dustin's eyebrows raised slightly, but both held their tongues.

"So are we pulling back the furniture or something? What kind of training is this, Shane?" Hunter asked, perching precariously on the edge of a rocking chair.

The Rangers were gathered in Shane's living room. He had invited the Thunders over claiming that the team needed extra training.

"This is evil space ninja psychology training," Shane explained.

"Huh?" Blake asked, confused.

"Dude, haven't you noticed Lothor pretty much acts like every bad guy on every Saturday morning cartoon ever made?" Dustin said.

Hunter and Blake stared at him in confusion.

"You mean you dragged us out of bed to watch Saturday morning cartoons?" Hunter asked, testily.

He and Blake exchanged glances.

"Exactly," Shane turned on the TV. "Does anyone know if Cam's coming?"

"I invited him, but he looked at me like I was nuts," Tori said.

"Maybe there's a reason for that," Hunter muttered under his breath.

"Dude, put it on WB, ABC Kids has *nothing* man," Dustin said.

Shane chuckled and changed the channel.
