PlotEdit

Keith Watson discovers his ability to throw wordballs and is invited to become a member of the Electric Company. Francine Carruthers, the leader of the neighborhood troublemakers called the Pranksters, steals Keith's special skill (the ability to draw in the air) and weakens the Company. Keith comes up with a brilliant plan to retrieve his skill. He convinces Francine and the other Pranksters that he in on their side by making it appear as though he has all the special skills of all the other Electric Company members. When Francine is fooled by this, she offers to trade special skills with him, meaning that he gets his ability to draw in midair back, and Francine doesn't get anything out of it (except backlash from the other Pranksters.)
