  • Episode Description
  • "Dear Mr. Blueberry" Leona is excited when he receives a letter from a character in a book named Emily. The letter directs him and Leona to the book, a picture book called Dear Mr. Blueberry, written and illustrated by Simon James. Both enjoy the story, which is about a little girl who believes a blue whale has taken up residence in her home's swimming pool and writes letters to her teacher about it. When they come upon somebody called Mr. Blueberry within the library, they think they've met the character from the book. "I Wanna Iguana" Lionel shares with Leona a picture book he just read that he found inspiring, I Wanna Igauna, written by Karen Kaufman Orloff and illustrated by David Catrow. The story features a boy who coresponds by letter back-and-forth with his mother until she finally agrees to let him have an iguana as a pet. The story gives Lionel the idea to write Cleo a letter asking for something he's always wanted, a helicopter. Both stories focus on teaching viewers about letters as a form of correspondence throughout the various segments.moreless

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger catches sight of a whale in Adventure 3787: Cliff Hanger and the Massive Whale. He consults his trusty Survival Manual, which encourages him to jump onto the blast of water coming from the whale's blowhole. He does so, but ends up being blown back up again and so ends up back hanging from the cliff.
