  • Episode Description
  • When Leona wants Lionel to read her The Fuzzy Fuzzy Wuzzy Book, illustrated by Buffy Huckabuck (a fictional illustrator), he agrees to do so only reluctantly as he considers it a "baby book." To his great consternation, the Fuzzy Wuzzy bear character emerges from the book and the entire library is swept up in a sort of mania as they all chant the rhyme from the book. Only Lionel seems unaffected and desperately seeks somewhere quiet where he can get away from the rhyme. Even the normally curmudgeonly Barnaby B. "Don't Call me Buster" Busterfield III admits to having been a long-time fan of Fuzzy Wuzzy and his story. Lionel is worried he'll never escape the madness, but he ends up learning something surprised. Segments throughout the episode focus on rhyming, as well as on the short u "uh" sound.moreless

    • Fuzzy: Fuzzy co-starred in a Cliff Hanger book. Lionel: No way. Fuzzy: Way! In fact, Fuzzy just so happens to have a copy of that book right here.

    • Lionel: (believing he has found an area where he can get away from the 'Fuzzy Wuzzy' rhyme) Oh yeah. No fuzziness. No wuzziness.

    • Buster: Fuzzy Wuzzy? I love Fuzzy Wuzzy! Walter and Clay: You?! No! Buster: Oh, yes. I've loved Fuzzy Wuzzy ever since I was a lad and I read those immortal lines-- 'Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.'

    • Lionel: I promise, Lionel, I won't tell any of your friends you're reading The Fuzzy Wuzzy Book to me. Library Patrons and Staff: Awww!

    • Lionel: (regarding The Fuzzy Fuzzy Wuzzy Book) It's a baby book. I'm too old for that.

    • Cleo serves as the designated reader for this episode.

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff meets the famous Fuzzy Wuzzy in Adventure #1465: Cliff Hanger and the Fuzzy Wuzzy Bear, a segment seen in the previous episode. In this episode, however, Lionel reads the story out loud.

    • Fun with Chicken Jane: Chicken Jane saves Dot and Scott from a muddy fate in Chicken Jane and the Big Flying Duck. Seeing such a duck approaching, she scrawls the warning "duck." Her warning saves Dot and Scott, but she is not so fortunate as the duck slams her into a mud puddle.
