  • New Foods/ Elephant Tricks

    Full Episode

    S 4 : Ep 2 - 2/19/03

    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

    Full Episode

    S 3 : Ep 7 - 3/13/02

    Monty Joins The Class: Little Bill's friend, Monty, moves closer to town, so he will be going to Bill's school now. Little Bill volunteers to be Monty's "Super Helper," and show him around the class, since he already knows Monty. Unfortunately, in his efforts to be helpful, Little Bill ends up doing everything for Monty rather than waiting for Monty to ask for help, or letting Monty do it himself. Resentful, Monty says he doesn't want Bill's help anymore, and that he would like to play with someone else. Later that night, Little Bill understands what he must have been doing to Monty when he has difficulty putting on his pajamas, and Alice the Great tries to offer assistance; Bill argues that he can do it, and isn't a baby. The next day at school, Bill apologizes to Monty, who teaches him how to use the magnetic fishing game more efficiently. Little Bill points out that Monty helped him-- in more ways than one.

    Dad Goes To School: Miss Murray arranges for all the children's fathers to visit the school to describe their careers. Uncle Al demonstrates how he operates his store, and gives out juice pops at snack time. Little Bill is excited about Big Bill coming to talk to the class, but worries that his father's job as a housing inspector isn't as exciting as some of his friend's parents, like Kiku's father, who is a fire fighter. Big Bill promises that he's going to make a presentation Little Bill will be proud of. At school, Big Bill tells the tale of "The Three Little Pigs and the Housing Inspector," explaining how his job is to make sure people's homes are safe to live in. With the children playing the pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, Big Bill illustrates how some building materials are better than others when making a house. All the kids enjoy interacting in the story, and Little Bill knows his father's job is just as important as everybody else's, even if it isn't as exciting.moreless
