    Great episode! The nursery has just been repainted and the kids are upset because the painters had to move their toys to the attic so that they could have room to work. So, Nanny brings them some picture books to look at while waiting for their stuff to come down from the attic. By the book has to be one of my favorite episodes of all time because it has the muppet babies playing characters of parts in different stories. Favorite scene has to be where they parody the Wizard of Oz, which is one of my favorite movies. I recommend this episode. You can find this episode over on youtube.com.moreless
