  • The Birthday Present / The Birthday Party

    Full Episode

    S 2 : Ep 7 - 9/13/00

    The Birthday Present: Little Bill and Brenda go shopping for a birthday present for Bill's cousin, Fuschia. Bill decides upon a toy robot called a "Gooey-Bot" that has a liquid goo in its stomach that wiggles around when you push a button on its head. Trying to prove he's grown up, Little Bill attempts to wrap Fuschia's present by himself, but he accidentally knocks it off the table while arranging the wrapping paper. When he picks it up, he notices the button the make the "gloop" move doesn't work anymore, and when he tries to fix it himself he just makes it worse, getting glue all over the toy. Little Bill hides when he hears Brenda coming, but she explains that she isn't angry if he broke the toy by accident, and there's still time before Fuschia's party to buy a replacement gift. The Birthday Party: Little Bill goes to his cousin Fuschia's birthday party pleased that his present is most likely the best gift. When he gets to the party, he tells his friend Andrew that he bought Fuschia the "Gooey-Bot," and is embarrassed to learn that Andrew got her one too. Little Bill tells Brenda he wants to go home because he doesn't want to be teased for buying the same present that someone else did since Fuschia will probably open Andrew's gift first. When it comes time for Fuschia to open her presents, she loves both dolls and tells Little Bill it's okay that she has two Gooey-Bots because the one Andrew gave her has orange goo inside and the one Bill gave her has pink goo, so to her it's like two different dolls that can play together.moreless

Bobby worries that their day will be ruined when it begins to rain while they're driving along, but Little Bill says that they should follow Alice the Great's advice about bad weather-- Keep your chin up high, smile at the sky, and wish those rain clouds bye, bye, bye.

At the gym, April gives Little Bill the usual snack Alice the Great makes for him-- apple juice and peanut butter on crackers-- and gives him a new coloring book to pass the time. After he finishes his snack and the book, Little Bill gets interested in watching April play basketball, and even offers to help the coach clean up the court after practice.

Although the children say they refuse to participate, Michael doesn't listen and starts saying mean things to Little Bill, who stays silent. Michael threatens that he'll just keep saying insults if Little Bill doesn't "play" the game tomorrow, so Little Bill attempts to practice making up mean things to say by pretending to be a pirate. April overhears her brother acting out of character and tells their parents; when Big Bill learns of Michael's games, he explains how "ranking" used to be a popular game when he was a boy, too, and that he always won his matches by countering his opponent's insults by stating "So?" because what they said wasn't true. Big Bill proves this by asking Little Bill what Michael called him at school, and asking if what he said is true.
