  • Trivia

    • A new feature is added to the closing credits, an end-tag. Basil and Johnny host a game called "Basil Says" while the credits play in a fully readable format at the bottom of the screen. Additionally, Johnny now reads the title displays out loud, and summarizes the event and lesson at the end of each story.

    • Johnny and the Sprites all had various "biddows" of their own they kept when they were very young. Johnny's was a baby hat. Lily had a toy jellyfish. Ginger's was a pillow somewhat similar to Root's and Basil's was a moss-covered rock.

  • Quotes

    • Johnny: Even though Root's biddow isn't exactly how it was, even though it's just a tiny piece of Root's biddow, he still loves it. So try and be careful with other people's stuff. They'll thank you for it, just like Root, because...
      Root: (singing) It's my biddow.

    • Basil: (singing) I stopped counting sheep / 'Cause the rock helped me sleep / A pillow that was truly hardcore.

    • Lily: (singing) Here's a great biddow, it used to be mine / No second-rate, this is top of the line / And we know you love your old one a lot, but even so...
      Root: No, no, no, no, no, not my biddow!

    • Lily: I was sort of cleaning Root's biddow and the whole thing fell apart.

    • Root: More dust here! Oh, you tired? Sorry, Nonny.
      Johnny: It's okay, Root.

    • Lily: Fedy, fidy, fody, fiddow. Let's make Root another biddow. Ta-da! Now, that's beautiful! Ha ha ha. I hope Root likes it.d

    • Lily: Oh, dear. Oh, I'd better use some really strong magic spells to get Root's biddow clean.

    • Johnny: Root's jumping all over the place with his pillow.
      Root: Biddow.
      Johnny: Right, "biddow." You see, Root calls his pillow his "biddow."

    • Root: I love you, biddow.

    • Johnny: You know, sometimes it can be a little bit scary meeting somebody new. But, you never know. You just might make a new friend.

    • Johnny: (singing) Isn't it nice to make a new friend / Who likes to do the things you do?
      Johnny, Gwen, Lily and Root: Isn't it nice to make a new friend / A new friend like you?

    • Basil: This is my house. Um, s-sorry about the mess.
      Gwen: Wow, this is beautiful. And red is my favorite color!
      Ginger: Oh, really?! 'Cause red's my favorite color, too.
      Gwen: Then we have something in common, Ginger.

    • Johnny: Pepper, parsley, clover, clove. Open the bridge to Grotto's Grove.

    • Gwen: There they are again! And they're furry! And they disappeared!
      Johnny: Well, they tend to do that.

    • Lily: Gwen is Johnny's friend and we have to help her.

    • Sage: Be brave and save Gwen -- (speaking quickly) before she's a bunny for the rest of her life.
      Sprites: (gasp)

    • Lily: But we never let Gwen see us.
      Ginger: We never let any grownups see us, only Johnny.
      Basil: What if she doesn't like us?
      Ginger: What if she thinks we're weird?

    • Sage: Once a human has started changing into a bunny, you have to act fast, because pretty soon you won't be able to change her back.

    • Root: I don't see Gwen bunny.
      Sprites: Sage!

    • Gwen: Mmm. Carrots.

    • Johnny: So, you want some pancakes?
      Gwen: Oh, no, thanks. So do you have any carrots?
      Ginger: What did I do wrong?
      Basil: I don't know, but if that cabbage isn't a bunny, I'm afraid that spell may have turned something else into a bunny. And we'd better find out what! Find the bunny, guys.

    • Johnny: Gwen and I are making pancakes. I'm a pretty good pancake flipper.
      Gwen: And a pretty good pancake maker.
      Johnny: Why, thank you very much.
