Episode Summary

EDIT
Racing Time/ All Tied Up
AIRED:
Racing Time: Little Bill is trying to get ready for school, but little things keep distracting him, like watching the bird's nest outside his window, and playing with Elephant. Alice the Great tells him if he doesn't stop dawdling he will be late to school. Little Bill gets to school too late to see Show and Tell, and misses his friend Kiku's presentation, showing her cat, Big Debbie. Little Bill apologizes to Miss Murray for his tardiness, and she reminds him to not be late to class the next day because she's bringing in her pet to who the class tomorrow. When he gets home after school, Little Bill asks Alice the Great to help him with his problem of getting ready on time. Alice suggests using an egg timer from the kitchen to time how long it takes Little Bill to do his tasks; that way, he can know how much time he has left before he knows he will be late. The next morning, Alice uses the timer to clock how long it takes Bill to get dressed, have his breakfast, and brush his teeth in time to leave for school. His test works so well he even gets to school early and is the first one to see Miss Murray's pet: her duck, Marigold. All Tied Up: Little Bill is embarrassed to learn that everyone else in his class knows how to tie their shoes while he's still learning. Fuschia mentions to her parents Bill's problem, and Al and Vanessa each suggests a song or rhyme to help Little Bill remember how to knot the laces, but he can't seem to get the hang of it. Big Bill helps him by showing him a method using a robe belt so he can practice on a larger scale, and recites a poem to help Little Bill remember. The next day on the schoolyard when Bill's shoe becomes untied, he uses his father's technique and is amazed when he's successful.moreless
