In another Black Lagoon Adventure, Hubie is preparing to be the anchorman for the school news program. He finds out that it will be the special Groundhog Day program, which he thinks is a ridiculous holiday. Nevertheless, he has to research the ins and outs of the holiday and even goes to the school's speech teacher for help with his diction. Hubie does a fantastic job on the school news program and gets offers from a few news stations to be an anchorman, but in the end, Hubie just wants to be a kid. Too bad there's another holiday in the month of February that isn't Hubie's favorite... Valentine's Day!
