Helpful Tracy is the seventeenth episode of the first series of the CBBC series "Story of Tracy Beaker" which was first broadcast on 17 September 2002. It is also know as Maxy's Shoes.


Tracy is worried that her behavioural problems are what's putting Cam off fostering her. She proclaims that she will become the nicest, kindest, most helpful person around.

Meanwhile, it's Maxy's clothing allowance day and it nearly ends in disaster when Maxy locks Jenny's minivan keys and then Mike's car keys in the van, all over a pair of trainers that Jenny liked but Maxy didn't.
