Floating Kart is the seventeenth episode of the seventh season. It was written by Andrew Brenner.


Norman makes a go-kart with items he collects around the town, some of which he borrows without asking permission, causing problems for others. On its first ride, he realizes he forgot to put brakes on his go-kart and goes off the harbour wall right into the sea! back at the station he gets an angry reprimand from Sam, telling him that saying sorry isn't getting him out of the situation this time and forces him to help Mike fix his van and do numerous jobs for other people too. Maybe that will teach Norman not to take things without asking in future!
