Dora the Explorer – El Día de las Madres
It’s Mother’s Day and Dora wants to help Papi bake Mamá a special cake. Three key ingredients are missing: bananas, nuts and chocolate, so with Boots’ help, Dora sets out to gather them. Then it’s time for a big Mother’s Day party with all of Dora’s friends and their mommies!
Go, Diego, Go! – Green Iguana Helps Abuelito Plant a New Strawberry Farm
It’s time for Abuelito’s Strawberry Festival, but when a strong wind blows all the strawberries away, Alicia must ask Diego for help. Green Iguana can save the day by transporting strawberry seeds in her belly and putting them into the soil so more strawberries can grow. They have to climb up trees to get to the top of the cliff, use stilts to get through the grass, swim through the lily pads and help iguana camouflage to hide from a scary animal. Most importantly, Iguana must get to Abuelito’s farm!
The Wonder Pets! – Save the Bee/Save the Squirrel
The Wonder Pets shrink down to bee-size to help a baby bee collect nectar for her first hive. Later on, a piglet comes to live in the classroom and the Wonder Pets each want to take care of it on their own. Eventually, they realize they need to work together to take care of the rather large piglet.
Blue’s Clues – The Grow Show
To find out what Blue wants to do outside, come help look for clues to learn the process of where orange juice comes from with Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper; investigate the elements of length and volume by comparing inchworms and puddles with Shovel and Pail; and categorize fruits and vegetables by where they grow with the felt friends.
Yo Gabba Gabba! – Eat
The characters learn the fun of eating vegetables and healthy meals. During “Party in My Tummy” and “Snacky Snack Snack” the vegetables beg to participate; and then the characters learn to try new things in “Try It You’ll Like It.” And finally, everyone learns that cleaning up their mess is just as fun as having a party in “Clean It Up”.
Ni Hao, Kai-lan – Happy Chinese New Year
It’s Chinese New Year, which means a big feast and red envelopes with friends and family! Kai-lan and her friends are thrilled because this year, they’re old enough to carry the huge dragon costume. Rintoo is assigned to march in the middle of the dragon but he doesn’t think the middle is important so he walks away. Without Rintoo, they can’t carry the dragon so Kai-lan must find a way to show Rintoo that every job on a team is important. In the end, the Dragon Team comes together to make the dragon dance and Yeye ends the day by giving a special red envelope to everyone.
