Episode Summary

Root's Dadoots / The Rare Nospotalotacus
"Roots Dadoots"

As Johnny struggles to write a new song, Root gets the dadoots --- the Sprite hiccups. The Sprites do their best to help them, offering a number of suggestions to help make the dadoots go away. When none of the suggestions work, they consult Sage, who has good advice, but advice Root may not be quite ready to hear. Johnny, however, finds a way to bring his song together by integrating Root's dadoots.

"The Rare Nospotalotacus"

When Johnny and Lily are outside talking to each other, they hear a strange but catchy noise --- kaa-lakachaka woo woo! When the Sprites all tell Sage about it, he tells them that it's the sound of the endangered nospotalotacus and they need to get it out of Johnny's garden and to Grotto's Grove right away. Nobody is quite sure how to get a nospotalotacus out of hiding, but they all have different ideas. They discover that teamwork, combining their ideas, is the best solution to the problem.moreless

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Johnny: (singing "Nospotalotacus") Nospotalotacus, where could you be? Oh, why can't you be a big hippopoatmus --- then you'd be easy to see.

      • Johnny: Okay, you guys, look. I think it's time that we put our heads together and all worked as one Sprite-man. One Sprite-man? That doesn't sound right.

      • Ginger: Go on, Bushy. Be a good bora bora. Act like one, Johnny. Come on!
        Johnny: The things I do for Sprites...

      • Johnny: Kaa-lakachaka woo woo! What'd you say? I said kaa-lakachaka woo woo!

      • Sage: You see, there aren't many nospotalotacuses left. So you must return it to the Grove right away. That way, we can protect it, so it won't disappear forever.

      • Johnny: Wow, Root's dadoots are history. Sprite on!

      • Johnny: (singing "What a Surprise") What a surprise! There was a rainbow that stretched out so long, (honk) what a surprise. It was so beautiful, I finished writing my song. The rainbow was inspiration from the sky.

      • Lily: Oh, I know you're tired of waiting, little Root, but you have to be patient.
        Ginger: Oh, Root's not very good at being patient, Lily. Come to think of it, neither am I.

      • Sage: Huh? What, hey, huh?
        Basil: Uh, naptime.
        Sage: Oh, ya'ay! Good times.

      • Lily: Let's hold hands
        Johnny: All right, here we go.
        Lily: And go to a happy place and breathe deeply in and out and in and out.
        Johnny: I am feeling so relaxed.

      • Root: Uh, my butt. Oh.
        Johnny: Oh, well listen --- are --- are you okay?
        Root: Oh yeah. (honk)

      • Lily: I can feel the melody coming from my center.
        Johnny: Your center?
        Lily: Yeah. That one's between my left and my right.
        Johnny: Oh. Okay.
