I didn't like the episode. It seemed to go way off track of where I was expecting it too go. I didn't really like the song. And the bats were portrayed as evil vermin. This is the one episode I really wanted a good morale too.
I am an animal guy. I know a lot about animals because my mother is a naturalist. A lot of people treat animals like pests like birds, chipmunks, spiders, ect but people need to learn to respect these animals. They play very important roles inn the ecosystem and some are just hunted down to extinction or have their habitats destroyed by people.
A lot of people fear bats for some strange reason, despite them posing no threat to humans(Besides rabies but that goes for all wild animals). They don't attack people, and they don't get stuck in your hair. There are many myths about bats and it just sickened me how this episode really extorted the fear of bats in this.
My other problem is how I did not care about anything prior to flutterbat. Seriously, Flutterbat needed more screen time. I would have bin happy with an episode focused around Flutterbat completely.
