By day, dad is a detective, mom is a caregiver, and kids are in school. Once the clock strikes 3PM, kids are home and doing homework. 5 o'clock, Julius is home. 5:30, dinner is served. 6PM: C+ is dressed and ready for action! Evil doers: BEWARE!

10PM, bedtime. Kids' got school in the morning.

  • Tangerine Dream: Julius knows exactly when and where a crime can take place... for he sees it in advance when he sleeps!
  • Orange Blossom: Blossom can nurse anyone back to health... If they deserve it!
  • The Mandarin Twins: Mandy and Aaron can boost your spirits when you are feeling anxious. Their elevating properties are well known and highly regarded for assisting with nervous tension, stress and depression!
