  • Episode Description
  • When a plumbing emergency ties up Theo and Cleo, they ask Lionel and Leona to post some signs that just arrived from the printer all over the library. When the cubs examine the signs, they're shocked and surprised as the rules on the signs are very weird. The bizarre rules include "hopping hen here," "bare feet in the computer room" and "breaking bricks permitted," among others. The two dutifully post the signs and soon find things out of control in the library. It's like a wild party, and it seems like there are really no rules. When Theo and Cleo see what's happening, they read the signs and realize that the printer forgot the "nos" that go before each of the rules. The deliveryman shows up and reveals that the package with the "nos" actually fell out of the shipment. With those in place, things are set straight. Segments throughout the episode focus on rules, the vowel sound short "e," and the show's general antics.moreless

    • Buster: Heh heh heh. Now the sign says 'no fun here.' Walter and Clay: Oh, no fun here? Phooey! Buster: (singing) Every party has a pooper / That's why I invited me / Party pooper, party pooper. Heh heh heh heh.

    • Cleo: One 'hopping hen here' sign isn't supposed to have a 'no.' The library welcomes all bouncing poultry.

    • Cliff Hanger: This is as easy as falling out of bed.

    • Delivery Man: This is a really interesting library. Lionel: Oh yeah.

    • Cleo: Oh, oh, the printer forgot the 'nos.' Leona: (indicating her nose) I got mine.

    Trivia (4)

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger adds a letter in the hope of rescue in Adventure 2,345: Cliff Hanger and the Bed. Cliff Hanger spots two movers carrying a large "ed." He consults his Trusty Survival Manual, which advises him to add a "b" to the front of it. He does and it turns into a bed. He drops down onto it, thinking he's finally rescued, but he just bounces right back up. And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger!

    • Gawain's Word: "W" and "et" blend together to make the word "wet." The silver and gold knights then dump water on each other.

    • The new vocabulary for this episode is allowed, hen, permitted, and saxophone.

    • The target vowel is the short "e" in the word hen.
