i don't want to talk about it right now. i don't want to have anything to do with this limerick slam, and i don't want to hear another limerick as long as i live! ♪ ah, alright, hector...what is the deal with you and limericks? ♪ it was seven years ago... in this very room. in the days when the limerick slam was held in the diner. ♪ it was the second annual limerick slam... he started to sneeze and lost his cream cheese... and my opponent was manny spamboni. ...and never did finish his bagel. ding! ding! that limerick is valid! alright, manny! that's my little boy. but as good as manny was i was better. i was the returning champion and about to win, again. good luck, hector. hector...this is for the championship.
make up a limerick about the beach. i started my limerick beautifully... i once took a trip to the ocean... but then, i started hearing this awful sound, like a bug but i didn't see one anywhere. (buzzing) it completely distracted me, i couldn't pay attention to my limerick. (buzzing) the sound distracted me so much that i said the weirdest thing... i am a chicken pot pie. huh? eh-eh! that's not valid! we have a limerick slam champ, manny spamboni! woo! (applause) better luck next year, hector, you'll certainly need it. (laughing) you're a chicken pot pie.
hey look, i was distracted. oh come on, hector, why have you not taken manny on since then? yeah, you never give up. i didn't give up, ok, you know i'm just not that into limericks, ok, they're not my thing. (phone beeping) a message...from manny. there once was a poet named jess whose limericks did not impress. she didn't have hector to come and protect her because hector was just such a mess. (cackling) ♪ ok, that's it. jess, are you ready to become the next limerick slam champion? i am! good, let's do this thing. alright! yeah! ♪
it's time for electric sound off! i'm your host, hector ruiz. (cheers) let's spin the wheel! what sound are we playing with today? short i, the "i" sound. let's plug in "i" to see it in action. "i" as in big lid... or ill inchworm. or a pig's ship... is sit a short "i" word? all: yes! is site a short "i" word? all: no! that's right...it has an "i," but it's a long "i" not a short "i." and now, i need two volunteers to go head to head with the "i" sound. i'll do it. i'll do it. well, come on up! (cheering) let's see some words! make a sentence using these words. the person who uses the most words with the "i" sound wins. but be careful, we've hidden some long "i" words on the wall too...ready? both: ready! work on your sentences while we hear a word from our sponsor. ♪ zip...zip...zip... i, francine carruthers
am the best zipper-zipper around. for only $300, i'll zip you into your coat, zip you into your shoes. experience what it's like to be zipped by a true zipper-zipper. ♪ time's up! let's see what sentences you made. well, my sentence is: a kitten in mittens is sitting on a twig. look at that -- kitten, in mittens, is, sitting, twig -- six "i" words. you have your work cut out for you, danny. no problem my sentence is: a twig on a mitten is behind the nice kitten. you got twig, mitten is, and kitten -- that's four points. but nice and behind have the "i" sound, not the "i" sound. that means...jessica wins! (cheering) what didin? a big blimp! wow! i'll see you next time on electric sound off! (beat boxing) ♪
help me read this... flick, the famous goldfish had chicken flavored gum! ♪ (explosions) ok, so the most important thing about a limerick is that it has its very own structure. structure, what do you mean? i'm talking about the way that it's built. like...ok, see that building over there? it has its own structure -- it has the foundation, the walls, the roof. a limerick has its own structure as well. so, how do you build one? ah, check it out i'll show you. ok...i'm standing here by a brick wall a great place to throw a word ball. i'm teaching you how to limerick now and i hope you remember it all. you see, this the rhyme structure,
the first two lines end in a rhyme -- wall and ball. hmm, and the next two lines end in a rhyme -- how and now. exactly, and the last line ends in a rhyme with the first two. all rhymes with wall and ball. exactly, that's the limerick structure that's how it's built. i can do that, step aside. ok. i'm a limerick queen i'm only 13. i know how to rhyme each and every time. see what i mean -- eh-eh! that is invalid. i got the rhyme structure right. yes, you got the rhyme structure right, but the rhythm was off. oh, shock, what's up, man? a beat please. (beat boxing) ok, now listen to the rhythm without the words. ♪
oh, i get it! i can do that. there once was a limerick queen, a girl at the age of 13. she learned how to rhyme and keep it in time, and now she knows just what you mean. ding! ding! that is a valid limerick. nice! thanks, shock. what are you doing here, man? it's beautiful out. well, well, well, looks like hector has taught his sister the art of the limerick. it would be a shame if she got...distracted. (buzzing) i have a mechanical bug that lives in a little red jug it buzzes around distracting with sound and for that i will give it a hug. (cackling) ♪
you know what i don't like? i don't like silent letters, i find them really annoying. like when a b comes after an m it's dumb, what's the point? i mean, the b's just hanging around there for no reason. i say thumbs down to "mb!" and so, with a stomp i will flip the "mb" to an "mp." now see, that p is doing something -- thumps. i can hear that p. now i can make words like, like stamp...and trample... and bump. now, i'll take the words climb and crumb and comb and put them in the dump! oh yeah, i'm pumped! i feel so much better. ♪
♪ ♪ alright, stay focused, don't get distracted and your name could be right up there. limerick slam champion. yikes, that's a lot of manny spamboni's. don't worry about it you're ready. manny, you do your best, you try hard, you play fair. you understand? of course, mommy i always play fair. and one more thing... uh-huh? win. ♪ alright, limerick lovers are you ready for three rollicking rounds of limerick lunacy? (cheering) alright, you all know the rules...or maybe you don't. you will each compose three limericks on the spot, i will give you a word and you will rhyme it in your limericks,
and your limericks must make sense. should you fail, you will hear this, "eh-eh!" alright, let the limerick slam begin! (cheers and applause) we will start with our reigning champ, manny. make up a limerick using the word "poet." (bell ringing) poet... i'm manny, the limerick poet i'm good and boy, do i know it! some want me to make a great big mistake, but sorry, i'm not gonna blow it. ding! ding! that's a valid limerick. (cheering) and now, the challenger, jessica. your word is "dozen." dozen...
i went to the store with my cousin to pick up 12 donuts a dozen. (buzzing) we thought we heard flies, but to our surprise, all that was there was a buzzing. ding! ding! that's valid. time out, time out! that's a new one... ok, i'll allow it. come over here what happened? i did hear a buzzing sound and it was really distracting. buzzing? yeah, like bzzzz. ok, ok, go distract everybody for a second i need to check something out. distract, right? yeah, yeah. um, hey, i want to thank everybody for coming out to the ninth annual limerick slam and i want to thank the electric diner for sponsoring us... bingo. now, how about seven years ago?
♪ excuse me... good job, jess. excuse me, hi... do you mind if i take jessica's place in this round? another new one...let's check with your opponent. bring it, chicken pot pie! alright folks, the slam is on with a tag-team twist. hector, you're up... your word is "hair." ♪ (buzzing) hair... i just grabbed this thing from the air that was buzzing around by my hair. it might seem weird but it kind of appeared that someone was not playing fair! ding! ding! that's valid. give me my bug!
manny, what bug? well, he's probably referring to the tiny mechanical bug that he's been flying into our ears to distract us. yeah, that one give it to me. manny! yes, mommy. what did i tell you about playing fair? um, that i should do that. we're going home! but, mommy. no more robotics for a week! mommy! i guess that means that jessica is the winner! no, no, wait, wait. i'm sorry, i know i keep doing this. but why don't we have just one more round, fair and square, no bugs, just limericks. what do you say, manny? can i, mommy? alright, but give me that bug. and...how about we make this one a team round if that's ok? why not? i pick jess as my partner. ok, manny you choose your partner. he chooses me... let's do this. alright folks, get ready for the freaky freestyle round.
your limericks can be about anything. we will keep going until someone makes an invalid limerick. ♪ here we go. there once was a sister and a brother. a pair that could rhyme like no other. our skills are supreme and we work as a team. now manny gets joined by his mother. i cannot believe that you cheated. it's better than being defeated. that's not how you play, that's just not the way. i promise that it won't be repeated. manny's bug caused a major distraction and his mom, well, she had a reaction. she got really mad and she yelled at the lad. now let's watch their next interaction. let's hope that you did learn your lesson. yes mommy, i have learned my lesson. eh-eh! oh! what happened? you rhymed lesson with lesson, you can't rhyme one word with the same word that's completely invalid. which means that jessica and hector win!
(cheering) (sobbing) there, there, manny, next year. (sobbing) jessica and hector ruiz... limerick slam champions. hector, i'm glad you're back on the limerick scene. i must say, it is nice to be back. hey hector, do you think i could be in the limerick slam next year? ah keith, what an excellent question. but please, let me make this suggestion. if you're seeking success take your lessons from jess, 'cause today, she made quite the impression. good job. thank you. well, look at that the electric company might be able to rhyme, but they won't win this time. on prankster planet, no one can stop me. will you even dare to try, electric company?

and we're going out on the biggest habitat on earth. the ocean. looking for the largest creatures in the world. the whales! chris: early morning, seas are calm. martin: perfect time for looking for whales! whoa! we're going right into the fog! martin: it's a thick mist. how are we ever gonna find a whale in this? chris: because of the mist, we can't see the whale. so we're gonna stop right here and listen for the sound of their spouting. (water hissing) yeah! did you hear that? there's whales all around us in the mist! i think i saw something down there. whoa! fin whales! the second largest whale in the world. a fin whale can live to be over 100 years old. tiny little fin, but a big animal-- they're fast. come up, breathe and then dive again. some whales can hold their breath for over an hour. but when they're travelling like this they stay under for only five minutes. look at all the swirls. they've gone down. all
right, let's keep movin'! martin: even though whales are the biggest animals on earth they can be the hardest to hang out with. they live in the water often freezing cold water. they swim fast and dive deep. some whales, like the sperm whale, dive so deep, they're impossible to follow down there where they hunt giant squid. imagine if we had whale powers and could join whales wherever they go. and do whatever they do. what if! ♪ ♪ on adventure with the coolest creatures ♪ ♪ from the oceans to the trees ♪ ♪ the brothers kratt are going places you never get to see ♪ ♪ hanging with their creature friends ♪ ♪ get ready, it's the hour ♪ ♪ we're gonna see some animals today with ♪ ♪ creature power ♪ ♪ gonna go wild, wild kratts ♪ ♪ gonna go wild, wild wild kratts ♪ ♪ gonna go wild,

is an awesome sub. martin: it's so maneuverable. and what a view! you can see everything going on all around us. and, who knows what's happening down there in the depths. chris: there's the question: can this sub go deep enough to find out? whoa, incoming! arrow squid, and they're feeding on... little amphipods tiny microscopic animals floating in the water. whoa. these squid are squishy. and slimy! oh, and their suction cups kind of tickle! (laughing) hey, aviva, i love this exploration valve feature. oh yeah, this amphisub rocks the deep sea. fantastico. got one more thing for the sub before you deep dive. just hang out there until i can finish up this robot arm. phew! where's my mango juice? oh, in the fridge.
might as well test the robot arm. ♪ hmph! ♪ ahh. guys, this robot arm is gonna be a great add-on to the sub. perfect for deep sea discovery. i like these exploration valves better. i can pet wild squid-pets. this is squiddo. squidtacular. squidcicle. martin, are you squidding me? ha ha, squidding me! good one, chris. there's no way you could come up with names for 1,000 squids. we'll see. this little guy is-- ah! he nipped me. your fangs! whoa, check that make it beaks. a squid has a beak like a parrot. whoa. aviva, are you sure this sub has what it takes to take on the mystery of the deep sea? i mean really deep sea? well, that's what i'm designing it for. small squid attacks are
one thing, but what about bigger ones? or the water pressure? i know, the deep sea is harder to explore than outer space. i'm working on it. we need a sub that can go as deep as a sperm whale and keep up with it. nobody has ever followed a sperm whale into the deep before i love the challenge. but it might not be something i can crack in a day. not unless i have some big inspiration. (rumbling outside) uh, how about this? sperm whale at 6:00! whoa! now that's a huge whale. uh, no. that's a huge whale. (screaming) martin: mother sperm whale. chris: and her calf. martin: whoa. heh, is that big enough inspiration for you, aviva? might be. it might be! whale powers. let's see, a sperm whale can dive deeper than any other
whale. she has flexible ribs that can fold up under intense pressure. and she has a thick layer of fat to keep her warm in the cold, deep waters! i can learn a lot from these whales. this is gonna be the best creature power suit yet. (loud boom-click) whoa, what was that!? it's coming from the big mama sperm whale's head! (boom-click) (crackling) okay, it's true. sperm whales are the loudest animal in the world. chris: they're echolocating on us. martin: yeah, that booming sound. comes out of her big, bumpy head. chris: bounces off us. the soundwaves travel back to her lower jaw which takes the sound up to her ear. martin: then to her brain! (boom-click) that's what you call sonar. and the sperm whale gets a sound picture of us. or her lunch. (boom-click) (boom-click)
♪ chris: whoa, she gulped down hundreds in one mouthful. that's like a bathtub full of squid in one bite. and she can eat eight bathtubs full of slimy squid a day. ♪ aww, look how closely the calf follows his mom. martin: he's cute! chris: i'd say he looks about a year old. i'd say he looks like a little rascal. oh, i'm gonna have to come up with a funny playful little name for this guy. chris: can't be too little of a name. he's already as big as a mini van. following a mom who's as big as a school bus. they're heading towards you tortuga. wow! the sperm whale is the largest toothed predator that ever lived on planet earth. thar she blows! (chuckling) do sperm whales rule
the sea, or what? almost, but not quite. they can get ganged up on by pods of hunting killer whales, drifting fishing nets called "ghost nets" tangle them up. and then there are the stories of epic battles with giant squid. but no one's ever seen it because they meet in the deep. what's going on up there? the whales are each taking a big breath in through their blowhole. koki: a whale breath is the same amount of air that fills a car! they must be getting ready for a deep dive. yeah, going deeper looking for bigger squid. oh! hey, we're not a beach ball! or a bumper boat. bumper, that's it! you're bumper. the newest member of the wild kratts team. chris: here we go. nobody's ever followed hunting sperm whales into the depths. martin: we're with you, bumper. chris: okay, aviva. how deep can this sub go? aviva: deeper than any mobile sub ever created by humans. i hope. chris: losing
all the sun's light at 600 feet, leaving the ocean sunlit zone. martin: entering twilight zone. chris: sub lights on. oh-ho, we're going deeper. uh, chris, do you ever get the feeling we're being watched? sure, the wild kratts crew is always keeping an eye on us. an eye the size of a basketball!? there's only one creature on the planet with an eye this big. a giant squid! chris: huh, now that's a whale of a squid! martin: behind you, bumper! oh no, squid attack! (urgent boom-clicking) ♪ she heard bumper's distress call! bumper's mom to the rescue! whoa! that's gotta be the world's most powerful head butt! chris: because the sperm whale has a giant head. only the blue whale's is bigger. martin:
this is it, what we've dreamed of seeing, what happens every day where people can't go. the creature battle no one has seen before. chris: i'm on it. martin: keep with them, chris. i'm on it! no, we're in it! whoa! ugh, chris! i just discovered something! giant squid suction cups have serrated cutting teeth! ahh! (whimpering) that's enough squid slime for one day. ugh. battle between sperm whale and giant squid. we can't miss this! how deep can this sub go? not any deeper. sensors indicate you're nearing collapse depth. collapse depth? if you go much deeper, the sub will be crushed like a tin can. gulp. uh oh. uh, chris, we might have to head back. we can't miss this battle! yeah, but we don't wanna get crushed, either.
the sub controls are acting funny. i have no controls! must have been lost in battle! we're sinking! ♪ koki: fifty feet until collapse depth. forty-nine, forty-eight-- why will the sub collapse if they go deeper? it's the pressure. what pressure!? the water pressure. the deeper the sub goes, the more water is on top the heavier that water gets, pushing in on the sub. that's pressure. if there's too much water weight pushing down on the sub, or pressure, the sub will be crushed! gotta pull them out of there! ♪ okay, i get it i get it! i see why it's harder to explore the deep sea than outer space! i wish we'd gone to the moon. the worst part is, we saw the start of the battle between the sperm whale
and the giant squid-- and we'll never know how it ends. almost there! koki: ten feet to collapse depth. nine, eight, seven-- aviva: gotcha! and going up. aviva, we've got to get back down there. what!? i just pulled you up! but a never-before-seen wildlife battle is going on down there. and if the mother whale loses, so does our buddy, bumper. but my sub couldn't handle the pressure. how are you gonna get down there? creature power suits! oh yeah! bring on the creature powers. aviva: okay, i've pre-programmed the discs for sperm whale and giant squid, but i haven't run any trials. it's too soon. and i obviously haven't figured out how to deal with the pressure! we'll have to rely on the code found in the whale and squid dna. what do they always mean, dna? dna is the biological code that gives every animal their special
features. every type of animal has their own dna code hidden in every cell of their body. but how are you gonna access the dna code when you can't even touch the animals? uh, hello? i'm touching a giant squid right now! i was slimed by the giant squid, remember? i'm covered with squid slime! ah, and i've got a whale tooth! chris and martin: activate creature power suits! ahh! gotta get to the water! i'm just a blob of jelly with eight arms. wait a second, did you say arms? don't you mean tentacles? hey, i've got those, too. squids have both arms and tentacles. the eight shorter ones are arms. you can tell, because they have suckers all the way down. oh! so the two longer ones are the tentacles. they only have suckers on the ends. whoa, that's awesome!
uh, need water to move. oops, sorry, guys. chris and martin: oh yeah! these are the best creature power suits! chris and martin: ever! let's dive. giant squid, ruler of the deep! oh, i could eat you right now, i've got teeth. i'm a toothed whale. heads up, big head. tentacle under, over. whoo hoo! (chuckling) martin, we've gotta follow the real sperm whale and giant squid before it's too late! let's go! how deep can they go in those suits? i admit it i'm out of my depth when it comes to dealing with the pressure of the deep. i just hope the secrets of the whale and the squid are in the creature power suits. i'll be keeping one giant squid eye on the pressure gauges. we're passing the depth where the sub crumpled. feeling a little squeeze but good. how 'bout you, bro? comfy, like snoozing in a bed of jelly. how's that comfy? it's a squid thing. hey! oh, the
squid. chris: and the whale. they're still at it! if the whale gets enough of the squid in her mouth, holy calamari, lunch over. not so fast. this mollusk monster is getting a grip. arms latched on. and remember, those suction cups have cutting edges. ouch! that's where she got those sucker scars. but with every shake the squid gets sucked deeper into the whale's mouth. the squid knows better. he's thinking "not gonna let that happen." ink blast! oh, whoa, didn't see that coming. yuck. listen, that's bumper. he sounds scared. chris and martin: a ghost net! bumper's mom! the net's dragging her down! even sperm whales can't go deeper than 4,000 feet. okay, she can hold her breath for 100 minutes, max. we have to save mom. to the creature rescue! i'm gonna monitor your depth
and pressure. right now, you're at 1,500 feet. the sea water above you is putting 682 pounds of pressure per square inch. that's as heavy as wearing a school bus as a hat! koki: you're right. that is a lot of weight. and a lot of pressure. how are you feeling? actually, okay. so the creature power suits must be working their biological magic. chris: there she is. wait, but where's bumper? he was just with us. i'll use my sonar to look for him. (boom-click) (beeping) (sound waves rumbling) must be that he can't dive any deeper than that. yeah, he's just a kid. he can't dive as deep as the adults. so he's gotta hang out and wait when his mom dives super deep. i'll keep an eye on him with my sonar, just like a whale would. speaking of mother sperm whale she's still sinking.
let's go. (boom-click) all right, bumper's safe. whoa! oh, there she is! three-thousand feet and still hanging in. oh, it's a good thing the sperm whale holds the record as the deepest diving air breathing animal. koki: but you're entering the midnight zone. it looks like even a sperm whale can't go deeper than that. i'll grab her! ahh, gotcha! with my tentacle club. whoo! a 90,000 pound sperm whale is really heavy, even under water. yes! we're reversing her fall. hey, and this is another never before seen creature moment. (straining) huh? squid and whale powers working together! ha ha-- oof! oh yeah!
oh, better check on bumper. (boom-click) ♪ a giant squid! wait, it's a different body shape. bigger! ten feet longer! oh, it's a colossal squid! a newly discovered species. (boom-click) (beeping) it's after bumper! i've got to get there first. go, chris, go! oh, but hurry back! i'm running out of squid strength! ahh, we're sinking! (boom-click) who's gonna get there first? i can't tell. too close to call. hurry, moby chris. ♪ chris:
bumper! not gonna get there in time! but my sonic boom can. (boom-click) a powerful whale sound that can stun the squid. arms off! uh oh. arms off bumper, but now they're on me! the colossal squid has sharp section cups, too. (straining) got an arm. oh, but you've got nine more. whoa, and colossal squid tentacles have spinning hooks. and they've got me. ah-- but listen, colossal squid, and listen close: so what if you've got spinning hooks? so what if you've got the largest eye in the world? as large as a large pizza. you don't scare me. can you take the shake? (metal rattling) okay, then. martin, help.
uh, chris, i was just gonna ask you the same thing. why? because we're sinking right towards-- underwater volcanoes! and they're active. but the squid just chewed off one of my fins. martin: but i'm drifting straight to a pool of bubbling lava. ah, his spinning hooks are shredding my back! martin: a volcano's erupting. chewing through the glass! oh! giant gas-filled rocks hurtling towards me! oh! giant gas-filled rocks hurtling towards me! gotcha! whoa! goin' up! hang on, mama whale! whoo hoo! chris: hurry, when he's done destroying my whale suit he's gonna devour me! martin: uh, excuse me, your colossalness? uh, don't you know it's not nice to eat creature rescuers? whoa! i've got no strength to fight back.
she's almost torn through my suit! the sperm whale has only five minutes of air! it's too deep for us to help you. can anybody say, "uh oh"? martin: oh no, stay away, bumper. save yourself! (boom-click) aww, what a buddy. he's trying to save us with a little boom-click. whoa! bumper, was that you? chris: i don't think so. only one creature could do that. the loudest animal on earth. a full-grown bull sperm whale! chris: a direct hit from his boom-click could knock down a small house. martin: it totally stunned the colossal squid. whoa, he's bigger than an 18-wheeler truck. the biggest toothed predator in the history of planet earth! the battle between a colossal squid and a bull sperm whale. a face-off between the
largest eye and the biggest brain in the creature world. ♪ oh! whoa! chris and martin: the sperm whale wins! martin: come on, let's go. hang in there, mom we're heading to air. thar they-- blow. yes! she made it! now that was a whale of a rescue. de-activate. let's get you out of this ghost net. looks like bumper's happy to have his mom back.
all right, here they are the sperm whales. the biggest-brained animals that ever lived. martin: who make the loudest sound of all animals. are the deepest air-breathing divers. the eaters of giant and colossal squid! swimming free and in the wild. ♪ there are two different groups of whales the toothed whales-- and the baleen whales. toothed whales, like sperm whales, beluga whales, killer whales and dolphins have teeth. and they're predators. so they hunt their prey using echolocation. baleen whales, they don't have teeth. baleen whales are whales like fin whales, humpback whales, minke whales and instead of teeth, they have... baleen in their mouths. and this is how they catch their food. the water comes in this side goes through the baleen, and then when it comes out this side, these little hairs catch all the tiny plants and animals
floating in the water, and that's what the baleen whales eat! the baleen whales are all around us, using their baleen right now! let's move out! ♪ chris, you got that camera? we can stick this pole cam right in the water when we find them. shh, listen. (water hissing) a humpback! we heard a humpback. where is she? there's a humpback whale swimming around. humpback! chris and martin: whoa! martin: see why they call them humpback, they've got that knobby hump, and then the dorsal fin goes up-- and then down. chris: humpbacks are also baleen whales. and that's why the whale's here: to eat to filter all those plants and animals, those tiny microscopic creatures, out of the water that is the whale's food. martin: oh wow, that white
that's her fin, the white's her fin. and white on the edge of the tail-- here she comes. oh! so close! we're just drifting and she's drifting along. we're in perfect position. that was a good spout! now that spout is a breath of air. it's kind of like when you breathe out in the winter: the hot air from inside the whale mixes with the cool air, and then you get that mist cloud. there he goes. the humpback whale. ♪ whales are great! oh yeah! we'll see you on the creature trail. keep on creature adventuring. hi, i'm martin from the kratt brothers, and this isn't chris. this is a ten-year-old alligator.
she weighs about 80 pounds and i can only hold on to her for so long. you know, a full-grown male alligator can get ten times this size? i couldn't even pick him up. i love alligators. all right, martin, we got a mystery animal right behind you. who do you think it it? okay. shh. i hear panting. could it be a mammal? yes, it's a mammal. all right. can you give me a colour clue? red. red? a red mammal. that narrows it down-- does it have big hind legs? oh, yeah! can it jump like crazy? oh, yeah. one of the best. is it a red kangaroo? you got it! the red kangaroo of australia. oh, yeah! this is a lemon shark. they're called lemon sharks because they're kind of yellowish in colour. this one's only about two or three years old.
but they can grow to be about 12' long. lemon sharks are fish eaters. and they live in the warm southern waters of the caribbean. there you go, buddy, back to living free and in the wild. announcer: it's wordgirl! protecting word-challenged citizens... practice does make perfect! and barbershop quartets! dr. two brains is cheating. police chief: take 'em away, boys.

like what? we could make up our own language. like cavemen. ooh, and we can call hot dogs "pork bananas." we could call water "wet stuff." we'd have our own hideout... can't you just see it? i can! (td gasps) pirates! they're in range-- ready? fire! (screaming) say, it's nice up here. yar! no, i'm the captain, which means i supervise you. (td screaming) hi. we've never met any pirates before. you guys want to come visit? we're having pork bananas. well, if we're going to get out of here we'd better come to a consensus. oh brother. where are we going to find a consensus? we're on an island.
a consensus isn't a thing. a consensus means everyone, or almost everyone agrees to something. like we might have a consensus to find something to eat? anybody? no? so let me get this straight. we need to cooperate to get off the island. right-- no fighting. we work together as a team. and if most people agree on something, we have a... a consensus. and when we have a consensus on what to do, then we'll take action. that's right. carolina: we'll be here forever! we're never getting off this island. well, whose fault is that? (td, truman and carolina arguing) look! hey, look, everyone! td: one of the rental boats. it must have come loose in the storm. hang on, everyone. got it! good work, martha! we did it! we're saved! i knew if we cooperated and worked as a team
we'd have this problem licked. okay, carolina. get in, let's go. hmm, there's something strange. the sun shouldn't be over there. td: okay, but hurry up and get in before it starts raining again. i'm telling you, the sun is setting in the wrong direction. the sun can't set in the wrong direction. tell her, truman. can't we just go? i don't want to be sick on anyone. again. sorry about that. it's okay-- the rain washed it off. come on, carolina. hmm... then we're turned the wrong way or something. i'm getting sick again! will you listen to me! quiet! everybody, shh! what now? i thought i heard... (phone ringing) a phone? on flea island? it's over that way! what the heck? how did that get there? you know, it was pretty hard to see where we were going in that storm.
you don't think...? is it possible? it couldn't be. we're not on flea island? we were home the whole time? i had a feeling something was wrong. we're still on the far side of the lake. how are we all going to get home? i have an idea. i'd like to put in an order please... for delivery. well, at least we all stuck together as a team. that's what saved us. i'm sorry i got us all into trouble. but you kept us from paddling out to flea island. you knew we were headed in the wrong direction. and the pizza guy is going to deliver us home... with pizza! so all is well-- mission accomplished! oh. (gasps) oh, no, i forgot! what's the matter? oh my science project! i totally forgot about it! i still need to find three kinds of plant life. hey, wait! i know! can you make one with pineapple, spinach and broccoli? ew! ew!
i'll eat it. td: it may not taste great but you'll have a good story for your science class. martha: i'll eat it. truman: we heard you. martha: i'll eat it! i'll eat it! how can i put out a paper with a big blank space in the front? that's not a newspaper. that's stationery. we just need one more story. i've got it! oh, not another scary cat story. scary cat? where?! (giggling) oh, i see. you were just... okay, no, actually i was going to say i know someone who can help us. both: who? do you have a story to tell? if so, go to the "martha's stories" page at pbskids.org and check out the "town crier" game. write up your story. make a puzzle that includes any words you like. include the weather. and then print it up. and hurry! i have a deadline. meet up at pbskids.org.
(skits barking) helen? aren't you done yet? not yet-- i want to finish this chapter. you finished now? nope. how about now? no. now? (groans) no, and i never will be if you keep interrupting. what's so great about reading up there? why can't you read inside? i like it up here. it's nice and quiet. usually. carolina: yoo-hoo! anybody home? where are you going? i thought you hated that tree house. desperate times call for desperate measures. i need helen to come to the park with me. i don't suppose you'd want to use your influence to convince her, would you? influence? that's when you try to get someone to say or do what you want. maybe... if i can influence you
to take me to the park, too. (sighs) if i have to. hey, cuz. want to come to the park with me and tiffany? i really want to read my book. but you have to! if you don't, i'll be stuck with her. hi! alone. what's wrong with that? i mean i thought you guys were friends. we are but if it's just us, things kind of become a competition, and tiffany's got to win, win, win! what's this? my cousin's silly old tree house. it's so cool. (gasps) i love, love, love it. it's just darling. really? i mean, yeah, really. i agree. it really is. but you don't like this place. shh! (nervous laugh) (muffled mumbling) (skits barking) you guys, you know what we should do? we should make the tree house our clubhouse! it kind of already is. that's what i've always said.
haven't i always said that? you said i should tear it down. (anxious laughing) oh it'll be so much fun! i think so, too. don't you think so, helen? i guess. hmm... of course, a club isn't really a club unless it has a president. (gasps) correcto! i'll do it! i'll do it! you? you? uh, we can have two presidents. no! no! i know-- we'll have an election! what? an election. it's when people vote on something. like, we'll vote on who should be in charge. do we have to? both: yes! tiffany: or at least you will. that's right! we'll campaign and you'll vote. you'll decide who's the winner and who's the loser. what? what'd i miss? (nervous groan) (skits barking) whoa! (barking, panting) helen: but i don't want to choose!
that's what voting is helen. you choose who will hold office. of course, there's usually more than one voter. exactly. look at it this way. at least you know your vote will count. (sighs) great-- i decide who wins and the loser decides to get mad at me. martha: maybe you won't have to decide. maybe they'll have forgotten all about the election thing. buenos días, clubbie! or maybe not. how are you today? fine. why are you here? i want to spend time with my little voter. find out what you think the issues are. issues? issues-- things you're worried about and want to discuss. like "can we paint the clubhouse pink?" that's an issue. or "can boys join?" that's an issue. can dogs join? that is not an issue. there's no way a dog can join this club. hmph. (horn honks)
good morning, voter! would you like a ride to school? don't fall for it helen! she's just trying to influence your vote. i am not! public transportation is one of my election issues. if you choose me i promise you a ride to school every day. oh, yeah? well, exercise is one of my election issues. choose me, and i'll walk you to school everyday. you'll have good leadership and good health. um... i think i'll ride my bike. (school bell rings) good morning, class. please open your books to page 57. "vote for tiffany"? "vote for carolina"? (sighs)
ew... "vote for tiffany"? (slurping) "vote for carolina"? ugh! "vote for carolina"? yaah! how was school today, clubbie? you know, if you ever need help with your homework i'm here for you. it's on me, voter. there you go, trying to influence my cousin's vote again. am not! good nutrition is one of my election issues. you're the one trying to influence votes. "i'll help with your homework." getting good grades is one of my election issues. uh-oh! i think we're losing our voter. (bell rings) (kids cheering)
boy: i'll see you later! "vote for tiffany"?! (groans) (dramatic music plays on tv) (bear growls carlo the dog barks) watch out for that grizzly, carlo! you could lose a paw! (carlo barks) it could be worse. he could be surrounded by people trying to win his vote. (phone ringing) hello? hi. i'm with the committee to elect carolina and i'd like to talk to you about mi candidata, my candidate. carolina?! i'm watching my favorite tv show. elections before entertainment! mm... sorry, i got to go. (groans) i'm sick of this campaign. (sniffing) where does it hurt? is a "cam pain," like a tummy pain? no, a campaign is when people do all kinds of things, trying to get you to vote for them. they hand out buttons, they put up posters, they make phone calls. do they stand in your yard with a cheerleading outfit?
huh? gimme a t... t! gimme an i... i! gimme an f and an f and an a-n-y! what does that spell? tiffany! who should be president? tiffany! who's going to win? tiffany! yay! tiffany blatsky. the only candidate who will jump through hoops for you. so, how's the election going? awful! carolina and tiffany are so competitive. they're constantly campaigning. (phone rings) hello? hi. i'm with the committee to elect carolina, and... um, it's kind of a bad time carolina-- we're eating. democracy before dinner. i thought nutrition was one of your issues. no. that's tiffany's. oh. well... my beans are getting cold. i got to go. (humming a tune)
(phone rings) hello? hi! i'm with the committee to elect car... (helen hangs up) (sighing): those campaigners always call at the worst times. i'll be in my tree house where it's nice and quiet. (sighs): ah... (gasps) this campaigning has got to stop! it's getting crazy! they're messing up everything. my tree house isn't any fun at all anymore. maybe things will be better after the election. it'll be worse. the loser will be mad at me. i wish i could just elect someone else. hey! maybe you can. (whispering): here's what we're going to do... (continues indistinctly) mm-hmm! a debate?! yeah. you know, where people talk about something, and... and one person says what's good about it
and another says what's bad. we know what "debate" means. why do we have to do it? it'll help me to choose who to vote for. martha will supervise. she'll ask the questions. your dog is going to lead the debate? sure. dogs don't take sides. unless there's food involved. ahem. okay, you'll have only five minutes to present your positions on each of the following debate issues. starting... now! (both chuckle nervously, gulp) would you feed a dog from the table? uh... uh... hmm. where do you stand on the "dog sleeping on your bed" issue? well, uh... mm... (ticking) cats-- for them or against them? walking in the park-- would you choose this as a club activity? (gasps) (quietly): ooh.
(ticking) what's your feeling about baths? (both chuckle nervously) (ticking) and finally would you let a dog be a member of the club? no! hmm. any chance i can influence you to change your mind? do you think it would influence helen to vote for me? (loud whisper): it might! then yes, dogs can be in the club. i have no debate with that. i agree with carolina. dogs should be allowed in the club! okay, then, helen and i are ready to cast our votes. "our"? you're voting? you said i could be in the club. okay, we have a consensus. (both gasp) and the winner is... me! martha! yay! whoo-hoo! helen: yay! what?! you're kidding! whoo-hoo! all right!
yeah! way to go, martha! this country's going to the dogs! (laughing) yeah! and i'm all for it! helen! it's 3:00! time for my presidential biscuit. at 3:15, i want my presidential belly rub. at 3:25, my presidential walk followed by another presidential biscuit. can you hear me up there? yes. and we've got to get a presidential elevator for this tree house. are these issues open for debate? i mean can we vote on it? uh... no. when's the next election? i've got to vote you out of office. oh. really? y-you'd do that? nah. (laughs) (martha barking) that's our show. did you catch all that's our show. did you catch all the words (loud clinking) about
government and... what is that noise? here are the words again. no. a campaign is when people do all kinds of things trying to get you to vote for them. they hand out buttons, they put up posters... issues-- things you're worried about and want to discuss. like, can we paint e clubhouse pink?

( rustling ) ( chatters ) ( rustling ) ( wind whistling ) on a windy day the country house windows were almost musical. as good as the wind sounded, it felt even better. ( loud sniff ) ah. smelled good, too.
( birds chirping ) ( laughing ) there had to be lots of things a clever monkey could fly out his window like heavy winter socks... ( chirping ) ...birds he drew.... ...his lucky brick. and there was even better stuff downstairs. what's the excitement, george? yeah, it's a great day to play in the wind. i'll get the door for you. ( excited chattering ) uh, george, if you're wondering how a big, yellow hat would fly... you know the rule, buddy-- no one is allowed to play with the yellow hat. ( chatters ) have fun. clean up after yourself, and don't blow away. george couldn't decide what he'd fly first...
hey, george! perfect kite flying' weather, huh? ( chatters ) careful. i'll lose control. flying' a kite's all about control. oh. this is a lazy susan. he didn't know what a kite was when he woke up that morning but there was nothing in the world george wanted more than to fly a kite. ( excited chattering ) sorry, i can't turn over control to an inexperienced city kid. this isn't as easy as i make it look. i studied the beaufort wind scale for three years. i never make mistakes. aw! ( yawns )
rats. that's never coming' down. for a city kid, you sure can climb a tree. ( screeching ) ( chuckles ) not a scratch! thanks, george! as a reward, i'll let you fly her. ( excited chattering ) woman: bill! billy! coming! i promised i'd help mom gut a pumpkin. i won't be long. ( groans ) you watch the kite till i get back. ( chatters )
( screeches ) ( squeaks ) ( geese honking ) ( george laughing ) george was flying with birds. it was a monkey's best dream come true. now that he'd lived his dream, his arm was getting sore and he wanted to go home. but he had no idea how to do that. george? i could've swore this was where i left that kid with my kite. george...! where are ya? hmm, he couldn't wait. boy... for a city kid who never flew a kite before got her up higher than i ever did. ( gasps ): whoa! ( doorbell rings )
well, hi, bill. you own binoculars? sure do. what's trailing behind that kite? ah, it's george. it's george?! and he's got a squirrel on his head! bill, you call the fire department. okay. why? i don't know. they seem to know how to do everything. what are you gonna do? i'm going up there after him! the world below looked beautiful and unfamiliar. george wasn't even sure which way home was anymore. ( jumpy chittering ) oh, and the squirrel on his head was hungry. ( george sighs ) flying was the best and the worst thing that had happened to him all day. man ( distant ): george! george! it was his friend, the man with the yellow... hang glider.
( excited chatter ) ( jumpy chittering ) george, i need you to reach out and take my hand with a hand, a foot, whatever. oh... ( jumpy screeching ) ( jumpy screeching george yelling ) ( george yelling ) all right, guys, hang on tight. we're going home. george would never forget the day he was almost a bird. ( jumpy shudders ) and he added "almost being a bird" to the list of things squirrels don't like. you're a natural kite flyer, kid.
good work. lunch is ready. here's some lunch for you, too, jumpy. it's time to bring her in, george. girl: well, he's a monkey. sometimes he does thing that you can't do. kid 2: he went flying over everything with his kite. my name's paulie. i'm a kite-flyer and i came here today to help you build kites. the sail of the kite is just made out of trash bags. and we have the spine and we have a cross spar. i think it will fly. do you see any kites here? (kids shouting excitedly) whoa! i did it! yes! wind is pushing against the trash bag.
the wind pushes it. and the wind is so strong. the wind's pushing it up right now. so that's why it's flying. do you think i'm gonna fly away like curious george because it's so windy? they're wiggling like this 'cause of the wind. it was a special day for george-- a visit to the museum. but first, a stop at pisghetti's for a sweet sunday treat. ( excited chatter ) george, they're not going anywhere. cannoli. a brown crunchy shell with a delicious filling. see? two, just for us.
mio caro gnocchi. she has been sneaking into the main room and scratching up the seats. it's a disastro. you see?! look what she has done. can you believe a little gatto-- a sweet, little kitty-- could do such damage? ( muttering ) ( chatters ) ( sighs heavily ) i must ban gnocchi from the ristorante. well, we saw the house you built her. it's very nice. gratsi. i plan to add a second story. ( cat meows ) oh, that is gnocchi. she wants to come in. i feel terrible. she only wants to come in because you say she cannot.
oh... typical cat. this kitchen is in torment. i suspect there will be no cannoli until this problem is solved. hey-hey! back outside. ( meows loudly ) ( meows ) don't worry, george. i'm sure they'll solve the problem. ( chatters ) ( meows sadly ) at the museum, george was too distracted to concentrate. ah, professor wiseman. hey, guys. welcome to my new exhibit. it's called "how great scientists got their great ideas." these are portraits of some great scientists. isaac newton benjamin franklin,
marie curie... and albert einstein. once you think like a scientist, george you can solve almost any problem. george had a problem. he wanted cannoli. ( excited chattering ) you know, scientists think about problems and get ideas to solve them. they observe, then collect information. and, if that information doesn't help solve their problem, they observe more, and get a different idea. oh, dear. excuse me. young man, get down from there! george wondered what great scientists would do if they were monkeys who had no cannoli because gnocchi had scratched the booths. i say, do we know for certain that she did it, like the chef believes? you must think about what you observed. george did see gnocchi scratch the door but could she have scratched the booth, too?
( meowing ) what you observed does not support the chef's idea about gnocchi making the scratches. if george could prove gnocchi was innocent chef pisghetti would be happy, and george would have cannoli! ooh! i love cannoli. george had to observe more. ( chattering ) ( meows ) gnocchi was thrilled to be back in the restaurant. now she could go back to her old routine. ( purring ) george needed something to draw on. waiter, could we get some garlic bread?
now he's reviewing the ravioli. he seems to like it better than the spaghetti. that he just dragged along the floor. the scratches on the booth were shorter than those on the door. and they were a lot deeper, too. george proved the scratches were different. gnocchi was innocent. but then who was making the scratches? george couldn't leave this problem unsolved. he had to find out what was making those scratches. there was no evidence of a bear or a dinosaur break-in. where is our garlic bread?
we ordered it quite some time ago. i think your waiter is quite lazy. oh! i am so sorry. mi 'scuzi. i will get it now. oh, he's not the waiter. he's reviewing the restaurant for the newspaper. don't be silly. it's true. he really likes the ravioli. this scratch hadn't been there earlier. it was brand-new. this is the most thorough reviewer i have ever seen. well, that's not a restaurant critic or a waiter. it's a monkey. a great scientist wouldn't let a problem get the best of him. george had to calm down and use his head. hmm.
ah! ( screams ) ( chittering ) giorgio! what are you doing in here? they know him. he's not a monkey. that guy was so wrong. ( chattering ) george showed them what he had discovered. ( meowing ) ( gasping ) ooh, giorgio! ohh! i love this kid! you have proven gnocchi is innocent! i am so happy, i'm gonna make two trays of cannoli!
( chattering happily ) exactly! cannoli for everyone, on the house! ( cheering ) ( all snoring ) making enough cannoli for everyone was exhausting. because, though george thought like a scientist he ate like a monkey. girl: girl: george is a monkey, so he can things that we can't do. boy: george pulled out the spaghetti so he could measure the scratches to solve the mystery. we're at the science discovery museum. girl: this is tinker tracks. do you think that you can arrange some of these pieces so that the ball goes down but then it jumps up a little bit? all: yeah! all right. should we give it a try? girl: it bounced off the red thing and missed the tube, so we tried raising the tube.
no. girl: it still didn't work. i think we should move the red thing and take it out. we solved the problem. yeah! yeah! yeah! announcer: pbs kids presents the all-new "peg + cat," where sometimes the fun starts with a problem... peg: these crazy chickens think the farm is a chicken playground. announcer: sometimes with a song... ♪ cheese and pickles ♪ ♪ pickles and cheese ♪ ♪ gimme, gimme, gimme that sandwich, please ♪ announcer: and sometimes it's just fun. ow. wahoo!
