This well-produced and tastefully handled ABC Afterschool Special is a sequel of sorts to the same series' landmark 1977 episode My Mom's Having a Baby. Puberty has kicked in for 12-year-old Kelly (Rachel Longaker), who is extremely confused by all the changes occuring within herself and her friends. Fortunately, real-life pediatrician Dr. Lendon Smith is on hand to help guide Kelly through this difficult and anxious stage of life. Helping Dr. Smith explain the transition from adolescence to teenhood are several delightful animated sequences, produced by DePatie-Freleng.
