One day while on a date with his childhood friend Rachel Moore, Jimmy observes a pair of men in black involved in some shady business. The men capture Jimmy and give him a poisonous substance to rub out their witness. But instead of killing him, it turns him into a little kid!

All the while, he's looking for the men in black and the mysterious organization they're with in order to find a cure for his miniature malady.
The Game’s Afoot
When Conan and Harley join forces to win a crime-solving competition, it’s not all fun and games. The head of a toy company has been murdered, and the only clue is a cryptic message spelled out in wooden blocks. Then the detectives race to find a terrorist at a baseball championship—and with a bomb planted somewhere in the stadium, they can’t afford to strike out! Meanwhile, Anita makes a difficult choice. Given the opportunity to enter the Witness Protection Program, will she disappear from Conan’s life forever?
