  • Episode Description
  • New Foods: Brenda and Little Bill are shopping at the grocery store when they run into Little Bill's classmate, Dorado, and his mother, Valencia. Valencia invites Bill to play over at their house and stay for dinner, but Brenda mentions they are planning to attend April's basketball game late that evening, so Valencia extends the invitation to the next day. Little Bill asks if they can have his favorite meal, macaroni and cheese; Valencia says she is going to make Dorado's favorite foods that night-- chicken with rice and pigeon peas, and fried plantain bananas. Little Bill is hesitant to try the new foods, and laments to his mother that he would rather eat food he is familiar with. Brenda gets him to realize how eating something different can be fun by asking him if everything were made out of macaroni and cheese, would he still want to eat it? Little Bill agrees to taste the dishes, and to his surprise discovers he enjoys it very much. Elephant Tricks: Little Bill and Andrew are watching Mr. Rojas' dog, Lito, play and ask Mr. Rojas to show them some tricks he taught the dog. Mr. Rojas gets Lito to flip in the air and eat a biscuit perched on his nose after waiting for a command. After they leave, Little Bill and Andrew are inspired to teach their own pets some tricks, but Little Bill cannot get his hamster, Elephant, to do the stunts because he is too small. Discouraged, Andrew decides that Lito and his dog Farfy are better than hamsters, and leaves. Little Bill, upset that his friend would insult his pet, talks to Alice the Great about the issue. Alice gets Bill to talk about all the reasons he chose Elephant in the first place when he went to Mr. Percy's pet store to select a pet. Little Bill think about all the good things he does with Elephant and how much he loves him, and realizes he has the best pet after all.moreless
