Episode Summary

The Treasure Hunt / The Best Way To Play
The Treasure Hunt: On a rainy day, Little Bill is bored and not sure what to do; Alice the Great suggests he find out what he likes to do best, and while looking for it to consider it a "treasure hunt." Little Bill goes around the house asking the other family members what their favorite thing is-- Big Bill loves listening to Jazz music, Brenda enjoys photography, while Bobby and April like to compete in chess. Later that night, while reviewing everything he learned to Alice the Great, she points out that storytelling must be Little Bill's "thing."

The Best Way To Play: Little Bill and his friends Andrew, Kiku, and cousin Fuschia are acting out their favorite TV show, Space Explorers, before the show comes on. As they watch the program during lunch, a commercial airs for a "Space Explorer" video game. Little Bill asks both Brenda and Big Bill if he can have the game, but they explain that's it's too expensive. Andrew gets the video game for his birthday, but after the kids play it for a few minutes, they realize their own game of pretending to be the characters is more fun and go outside to play.moreless
