  • Episode Description
  • The lions are trying to spend a night awake so that they can observe a rare astronomical phenomenon -- a heavy meteor shower. After reading a poem about it, they're excited for it, but they have trouble staying awake. Lions need a good, solid 22 hours of sleep and it seems like they may drift off to dreamland, no matter how hard the try. In an attempt to try to keep everyone awake, Leona creates her own poem based on the idea she originally had of what they were going to see -- a "meat shower." Segments throughout the episode focus on words with the "ar" sound.moreless

    • Buster: I want you to know that I had nothing to do with that little lion cub seeing the meteor shower. I do not take credit for it, in spite of the fact that someone might want to give me credit... even a small award... maybe a cookie?

    • Leona and Lionel: (singing) Meat loaf and liver and bacon, too / Raining down on me and you.

    • Leona: (singing) Look, here comes a mutton chop / With lots of gravy smeared on top.

    • Leona: (regarding Theo and Cleo) Oh no, Lionel. They're asleep again. Standing up.

    • Theo: This isn't going to be easy. Lions need a good, solid 22 hours of a sleep a day.
