A Wurm in Our Midst was the sixth episode of Fillmore! to be produced and the third to air. It was originally broadcast on September 28, 2002.


Someone has stolen almost all the books in the X Middle School Library, and all the evidence points to Tony Clemetina, a delinquent that Fillmore has gone up against more than once. Meanwhile, Ingrid starts digging into a custard disaster that rocked the school before she arrived. With what she discovers, Fillmore is reminded that the truth is not always easy to find, and there is no such thing as a 'lost cause'.

Trivia/ Goofs

  • It is shown at the beginning of the episode that Brad lives right next to the school. Therefore Brad would not need to get on the bus to go home (It could be argued he was going to buy pretzel rods).
  • It is revealed that Fillmore is originally from the Cleveland area.
  • Tehama's method for extracting fingerprints can be used in real life.
