To the Watterson family’s annoyance, Chi Chi and Ribbit and their family copy everything they do. In another new episode, “The Sorcerer”, Gumball refuses to accept that he’s the only kid in school without magical powers, he visits Hector’s mum so he could become a sorcerer’s apprentice, however magic and a mischievous Gumball do not mix.
