  • Episode Description
  • Lionel wakes up one morning to a shock-- he's grown antlers on his head! Though he's sure he's become some kind of a mutant, his family doesn't seem to think it's that big a deal. To try to help him feel better, Cleo reads the book Imogene's Antlers, written and illustrated by David Small. The book is about a little girl, who like Lionel, woke up one morning with antlers on her head. Later, the family comes up with a play in the hopes of cheering up Lionel. Segments through the episode focus on words with the short "a" sound.moreless

    Allusions (2)

    • Leona: (regarding Lionel's antlers) They're gonna go away, Lionel. Just like Imogene's. Cleo: Right. In the meantime, enjoy them. Lionel: Enjoy them? That's easy for you to say. You're not the one who's turning into Bullwinkle. Bullwinkle was a moose who was featured in a series of cartoons, generally alongside a squirrel named Rocky.

    • Cleo and Theo: Wanting to use Lionel as a coat rack
      Another place where somebody gets used as a coat rack is in the book, "The Principal From The Black Lagoon" by Mike Thaler and Jared Lee.
