Episode Summary

The Birthday Girl:
Becky/WordGirl and her friend Violet meet Eileen, a.k.a. The Birthday Girl, who enlarges and turns green whenever she doesn't get her way. When Eileen waltzes off with Captain Huggy Face, WordGirl must use Violet's help to teach The Birthday Girl to be generous in order to rescue him. However, in their quest to find Huggy and his captor, they seem to be exaggerating to a lot of busy people.

Granny May finds an alibi for her next crime when she responds to a wanted ad for a babysitter. But the children she must babysit turn out to be Becky/WordGirl Botsford and her brother TJ. Becky must investigate and transform into WordGirl in order to stop her from stealing the Mazo-Racer (a solid gold race car which accelerates from 0 to 105 miles per hour).
