Starring Quincy RumpelBook - 1993
Quincy is determined to make her mark. When sales lag on her dad's mini-trampolines, the Rumpel Rebounders, she hatches a scheme to get the word out and make herself a star in one stroke. En route to general renown and her 12th birthday, Quincy finds plenty of time for self-improvement projects (experimental applications of hair gel, eyeliner, and deodorant) and other fun. Snowflake the dog, cousin Gwen, sister Leah, brother Morris, and of course Mr. Rumpel are all thoroughly eclipsed by Mrs. Rumpel, who bounces her way to trouble while hula hooping under a low-hanging chandelier. The resourceful Quincy manages to sort things out, steal the show at her school play, and end up on the evening news plugging the Rumpel Rebounders. At least for the ride home, the front seat belongs to Quincy Rumpel.
