"Follow the Bouncing Ball"

El Boomerang is a soccer ball owned by Alberto. It was autographed by famous Ecuadorian player Juan-Carlos Salamanca, who was nicknamed “El Boomerang”. It was lost in "Follow the Bouncing Ball" and was later returned to Alberto in "The Long Road Home."

The Ball


The soccer ball of Francine and Alberto were confused which each others. When Francine is about to return the ball to Alberto, Francine tells Buster to throw the ball down from the balcony of his condo. It bounces over her head. After a while of chasing it, it stops, only to be hit by the skateboard of Molly. It goes near Grandma Thora's dog Killer, and her leash slips off of Thora's hand, causing the dog to chase the ball. It bounces onto the back of a pickup truck and all hope is lost. At the end of "Following the Bouncing Ball", it escapes from the back of the truck. Throughout Season 14, the ball can be seen bouncing around.

It later returned to Alberto in "The Long Road Home" when Arthur's penpal, Adil, found it and shipped it to Arthur's house. It was in the same week as Alberto's party and Arthur was going to give it to him as a present, but couldn't. At the end of the episode George kicked it and it landed in the arms of Alberto.
