Episode Summary

Copy Cat: At school, Little Bill and Andrew are pretending to be firemen when Andrew accuses Little Bill of not letting him have a turn driving the fire truck; Little Bill argues that he was just about to let Andrew drive, but he only wanted to finish taking his turn. They end the argument when they see Kiku and Fuschia playing Farmer. Fuschia is the farmer, and Kiku is playing a goat. Andrew says he wants to be the rooster on the farm, so everyone pretends to fall asleep in order for Andrew to crow in the morning; Little Bill becomes impatient and decides he wants to do the "cock-a-doodle-doo." Andrew, still angry over the fire truck incident and the fact that Bill stole his job as rooster, calls Little Bill a Copy Cat for always doing the same thing as him, then declares they aren't friends anymore. When he gets home, Little Bill, upset over what Andrew said, calls Bobby a Copy Cat after Bobby decides he wants a glass of apple juice upon seeing Bill drinking it. Alice the Great makes Bill understand that someone isn't a copycat just because they like the same things somebody else does. It just means they have similar interests. The next day, during an art class, Little Bill is afraid he will be called a copycat again because he inadvertantly drew a picture of a fire truck just like Andrew did, but Miss Murray gives the same advice his great grandmother did and helps Andrew see how he was mistaken. The two boys make up, and Bill lets Andrew drive the fire truck to make up the turn he didn't have yesterday. Picture Day: Little Bill's school is taking a class photograph for the yearbook, and he decides that he wants to choose his own clothing for the picture like his older siblings. He picks out his favorite clothes, thinking he will look good, but his combination of rain boots, a Captain Brainstorm T-Shirt, and shorts with ducks on it just makes him look funny. Trying not to hurt his feelings, Brenda gently explains that the outfit Bill has chosen is too light to wear on a fall day and he will be cold. Asking for help but still requesting to pick out his own outfit, Little Bill allows Brenda to put together a nice suit for him to wear for the photo, and asks to wear his favorite tie. Brenda asks if she can take a photo of him in his "summer clothes" before he changes.moreless

    • As the childen are getting ready to pose for the school picture, Kiku is shown wearing her flower girl outfit from Miss Murray's Wedding. When she's shown in close-up shots, her headband is covered in flowers, but in wide shots, it's just a plain blue headband. Where did the flowers go?

    • When Brenda is helping Little Bill pick out clothes to wear for Picture Day, she says she's going to select a blue dress shirt for him to wear instead of his favorite Captain Brainstorm T-shirt. Instead, she takes out a blue sport jacket, but Little Bill is already wearing the blue sport jacket when she takes it out; does he have two jackets, and where's the dress shirt?
