Not as Seen on TV
Takato can't figure out how to
get Growlmon to de-digivolve back to Guilmon! They try messing
with the digivice, exercising, skipping rope, jumping in cold water and
even making a wish. Nothing seems to work -- this isn't as easy as
it looks on TV!
Takato leaves Growlmon in the park to sleep for the night hoping
everything will be better the next morning. On his way back home
he runs into Jerry and asks her for help. Jerry is shocked that
Takato would ask HER, but she agrees to try. Jerry misunderstands
Takato and thinks he has a crush on her. Girls!
Takato tracks down Henry who suggests they put Growlmon back in the
tunnel where he disappeared once before. Henry reassures Takato
that Growlmon won't disappear again. Henry and Takato leave and
Growlmon settles down to sleep.
He doesn't get much rest, though! Impmon shows up and harasses
Growlmon, chasing him out of the tunnel.
The next morning Takato goes to the tunnel with some bread for
Growlmon. But Growlmon isn't there! Henry sends Terriermon
off to look for him. Terriermon finally finds Growlmon asleep in
the playground with a bunch of kids playing on him -- they don't realize
he's a real digimon.
Terriermon runs back to tell Henry and Takato. They make it to
the park and find Growlmon hiding in the bushes.
They decide they can't hide Growlmon in the tunnel since
Impmon will likely just chase him off again. So, they paint
Growlmon camouflage colors so he can stay hidden in the park. Rika
shows up with Renamon who quickly finds Growlmon with her glowing
eyes. Rika and Renamon walk away in their normal angry way.
It begins to rain and the paint starts to wash off Growlmon.
Takato begins to cry because he feels that everything he does as a Tamer
goes wrong. The rain stops and a rainbow appears. Growlmon
stares at the rainbow and begins to glow. Flecks of light fly off
Growlmon up to the rainbow and he finally turns back to Guilmon.
... are they going to have to find a rainbow every time?!
