Hank knows he is not a genius in electronics, but his science project is due and he needs a good one. After all, how hard can it be to take apart the cable box and reprogram it? But nothing is ever easy for Hank, especially when his sister's angry pet iguana decides to nest in the box. If one big iguana gives him one big headache, what will 18 baby iguanas do?
