Template:Incomplete synopsis On their way to the Battle Tower, May finds a Smoochum behind a bush. She tries to pick it up, only to be attacked by three Jynx, Smoochum’s sisters. After a short battle Ash and the others leave and head for town. Soon after, Team Rocket take Smoochum and plan to make her a star. The Jynx then begin to attack the town and Ash and May hold them back before luring them to where Smoochum is. However, when they get there, Jessie has no intentions to give Smoochum back to her sisters!

Major events





Jessie's fantasy


  • Much of the background music in this episode was taken from Gotta Dance!! and Jirachi: Wish Maker.
  • The dub title was a reference to the 1987 movie Three Men and a Baby starring Tom Selleck, Ted Danson, and Steve Guttenburg. The movie is infamous for the so-called "ghost" that was captured on camera during filming.
  • This is the first Japanese episode in which Jynx appears with its new design. In the previous episode in which Jynx appeared, it used its old design, which was recolored for the dub.


  • Only one Jynx has a dubbed voice while the other two keep their Japanese voices.
  • The Jynx freeze a portion of the ladder behind Jessie into a major sheet of ice, yet somehow Ash is able to overcome this obstacle without so much as showing the audience how this is done.
