Helpful Girl

Season 1, Episode 23 of 26

Mona learns about the value of helping others. Mona and Fleafer are having a tea party. Mona helps Fleafer drink his tea while Nana comes in with a shoebox. Mona asks what it is, and Nana tells her she is using the things inside to do something special in the kitchen. Mona asks if she can help. They go into the kitchen and there is cookie dough laid out. They are making cookies. Nana gives Mona a cookie cutter and tells her how to use it. Mona puts the cutter into the dough and makes a duck cookie. Nana goes to move it to the tray. Mona tries to help and the cookie ends up on the floor. Russell awakes and bounds into the kitchen and steals the cookie dough from the floor. Mona declares that Russell was helping too. They continue to cut more cookies. Later they visit Mr. Wooka, and Nana tells him how Mona has been helping out. Puppet Show: Gary and the monsters are lost, and thirsty. They see an orange and agree that it looks very juicy, and it will solve all their problems. Unfortunately, it is too high for any of them to reach. They try all sorts of things but the orange remains in the tree. They realize they have to work together and that by helping each other they will accomplish their task. They stack themselves on top of each other and are able to reach the orange. They each get a piece of the fruit, and while they are eating Gary drops his. He asks Mona to help him get his orange, and she does. They head back to Nana's kitchen and look at all the freshly baked cookies. Nana shows Mona how to decorate them so that she can help out. Mona decorates the duck cookies. When they finish, they hear some knocking in the backyard. Nana says there is a surprise for Mona in the backyard. Nana and Mona take the cookies out to Mr. Wooka, and see that he is building a swing for Mona, and Russell is helping by bringing him his tools. Nana and Mona bring the cookies outside, but Mr. Wooka says before they eat the cookies, he needs Mona's help putting up the swing. Nana says that she will help by singing a song. Song Time: Helpful Hank. We see Mona and Mr. Wooka working together. Once the swing is finished, Mona begins to use it, while Mr. Wooka helps by pushing her. Then it is Nana's turn, and Mr. Wooka pushes her while Mona and Russell watch. Mom arrives to take Mona home, and Nana tells her how helpful Mona has been.
