Michael Sleeps Over/ Michael's First Snow
: Ep 6 -
Michael Sleeps Over: Little Bill invites his friend Michael to spend the night when Michael's mother has to go out of town for the day. At first, Michael enjoys playing games and meeting the family, but by dinnertime, he becomes homesick and wants Big Bill to take him home. Little Bill tries to make Michael feel more comfortable by letting his friend sleep in his bed on Captain Brainstorm sheets, since Michael's bed at home has the same bedding. He also allows Michael to play with Elephant so Michael won't miss his own pet goldfish as much. When they finally go to sleep, Michael says he'll repay Little Bill for all his hospitality by inviting him to sleep over at his house.
Michael's First Snow: As Brenda is putting the boys to bed, she notices that outside a heavy snowfall has started, and by morning the back yard is blanketed with snow. Michael remarks that since he grew up in Florida, where it's usually sunny all year round, that this is the first time he's seen snow. April, Bobby, and Little Bill quickly get caught up in the antics of snowball fights and making snowmen, but Michael tires of the cold after Bobby teaches him to make a snow angel. Remarking that he's all cold and wet from lying on his back to make the angel, Michael goes inside to warm up. Little Bill can't understand why his friend doesn't seem to be having as much fun as the rest of them, until April explains how some people just don't like cold weather as much as other people, and that's it's good that they're different. Michael points out that the good thing about coming inside after playing in the snow is having some of Big Bill's hot chocolate.moreless
