Episode Synopsis

Cat’s Play

In the Cat’s Playhouse, everyone pretends to be pirates, and they imagine great adventures. In the Wubbulous World, Sarah imagines that she’s a superhero, and Junior imagines what it would be like to be more special, with a super-long tail and antlers.

The King’s Beard

King Lindy of Lime has a beard so long that no one knows just how long it is. Yertle the Turtle, the King’s trusted advisor, suggests that a young jester named Elwood be sent to measure the beard. Of course, wacky hijinks ensue when Elwood meets up with King Noogle, Princess Mindy, and King Noogle’s trusted advisor…Yertle?

A Bird’s Guide To Health

In the Cat’s Playhouse, Little Cat Z is sick, and Terrence is afraid he’ll catch his cold. It’s up to the Cat and the Little Cats to show him how to stay healthy. In the Wubbulous World, Horton rescues and takes care of Sid Spider, much to the chagrin of Jane Kangeroo, who thinks that bugs are creepy and not friendly. We also meet Dr. Gazeet, who takes care of everyone in the Kingdom of Didd.
