Episode Summary


Measuring Up:
Charles' mom and dad tell him how much he's growing, and he can't wait to get to school to share the big news with his friends. When Mrs. Jenkins' students display full-cutouts of themselves, it's clear that Charles is the smallest in the class. Charles soon learns that "smallest" is a relative term when Doris, the "biggest" in the class, reveals a secret.

Lost and Found:
Yoko is delighted when she learns about a set of figurines that once belonged to her grandmother called the Netzke Family. Her mom reluctantly agrees to let her take them to school, so long as she takes good care of them and doesn't let anyone else play with them. Yoko follows her mom's rules and presents the figurines for In the Spotlight. At the end of the day, Yoko discovers that the figurines have disappeared from her cubbyhole. At first, everyone thinks that they just got lost. But when a Lost and Found Day fails to turn them up, some begin to think that the figurines may have been taken.

      Doris: There are a lot of other times when I'm the smallest.
      Charles: Like when?
      Doris: Like all the time at home. I'm the smallest in the family.
      Charles: Really? You're the smallest?
      Doris: Uh huh. I'm even too small to ride the bumper cars at the fair. I have to watch my brothers drive by and stick their tongues out at me. They call me a shrimp. It makes me so mad.
      Charles: Hmm, I don't like being called a shrimp either. If I see your older brothers sticking their tongues out, I'll tell them to stop it.
      Doris: Thanks, Charles! What do you think about that, Mr. Big Shot?!
