Smart-talking Mitchell (Doc Brown) is under surveillance after headmaster Mr Abercrombie finds out he burned down his old school, so when items go missing, he's named prime suspect. As Mitchell, Becky (Emma Kennedy) and geeky Templeton (Richard Ayoade) start their own investigation, they stumble upon a mysterious boy, the smell of hotdog goulash, and a load of witty one-liners delivered by digitally enhanced puppets. Suffice to say this gem from Simpsons writer Josh Weinstein is guaranteed to make Grange Hill fans feel very old.
