In the episode named “Pedal ‘n Tool Cock-a-doodle-doo” (episode #47) where Handy Manny helps a hot dog vendor with his cart and a rooster keeps the citizens up too early, there seems to be a quite dangerous action taken by one of the citizens.
At the begriming of the episode, the candy store owner is placing a barrel full of candy in front off his store. Then, after an exchange of words with Handy Manny, his tools and the store owner, the store owner jumps head first inside the barrel full of candy and get’s stuck inside. After that, the barrel became on it’s side where the store owner and the candy fell out.
The danger is that there are millions of viewers that just so happen to be below the age of 8 years. If any of these young children have an inclination that there might be candy in a barrel, bucket or anything else. These children would not know that the barrel, bucket or anything else that may hold water or a substance that might harm them is inside. They could just diver right in with candy on their minds.
There have not been any known incidents of death or injury because of this episode, but as a watchful guardian to several nieces and nephews, especially one of 14 months, I thought everyone might want to know what I saw. I have heard many times of children drowning from jumping inside buckets head first and did not approve of this and I thought that this episode had been a potentially dangerous episode of Handy Manny.
