Sam is as cute as a button, but he just can't seem to find a family who wants him.When the newest prospective parents come to visit, Sam decides to impress them with a few magic tricks. He becomes “The Great Sambini” with Booger as his assistant. When his most amazing trick flops, Sam is deflated but not defeated, and with Booger's help he conjures up a different kind of magic.
