Episode Summary

Moon Rope & Welcome to the Moon
"Moon Rope" Theo reads the cubs the story Moon Rope, written and illustrated by Lois Ehlert. In the story, a fox gets the idea to travel to the moon using a rope and tries to get his friend mole in on the plan. Leona likes the story so much that she too wants to try this method of transit. "Welcome to the Moon" Lionel and Leona view an online picture book called First Girls on the Moon. In the story, a girl and her friend Katie decide that they want to be the first girls on the moon, since only men have ever been there before. Along the way, readers learn various facts about the moon, such as that it is 225,000 miles away from the Earth. Later on, Leona is excited by a book titled All About Kangaroos.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Blending Bowl: In an exciting play, "p" and "oke" blend together to make the word "poke." The referee then gets poked.

    • The Adventures of Cliff Hanger: A mole holding a rope appears in Adventure 9,000: Cliff Hanger, the Mole and the Rope. Cliff Hanger consults his trusty survival manual. It advises him to ask the mole to throw him the other end of the rope. He asks and the mole does so. The mole, who looks and sounds like an evil scientist, decides to give him the whole rope instead, saying "I'm at the end of my rope." His hope of rescue dashed, Cliff is left hanging from the cliff once again. (And that's why he's called Cliff Hanger!)
