  • Episode Description
  • When Theo and Cleo hold a meeting of the library's New Books Committee, they come upon a book titled The Lucky, Lucky, Lucky Duck. Lionel is appalled by the overly cute appearance of the duck and it turns out the duck isn't happy about being so cute either. He's bored with being fawned over all the time and longs to be a duck with attitude. Lionel understands how he feels, though Leona, Theo and Cleo prefer him to be cute. Lionel comes up with a plan to help the duck lose its cute nature. When his first attempt fails, he thinks and comes up with an even better idea. Segments throughout the episode focus on words with the "uh" sound. The episode also touches on words that sound like vowel sounds.moreless

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: Cliff Hanger spots a big, flying rug in Adventure 73: Cliff Hanger and the Big Flying Rug. He checks his Trusty Survival Manual, which advises him to jump on the rug. He does, but while flying about on it, a bug pops out and says "give me a hug, you big lug." Frightened of the bug, Cliff Hanger backs away and falls off the rug. He is forced to grab back onto the branch jutting out of the cliff to save his life. And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger!
