Franny's Feet

Birds Of A Feather/Yummy In My Tummy

Season 1, Episode 5 of 13

A) Franny arrives on the edge of a pretty pond in India, where she meets a peacock and a flamingo. The two birds are not very neighborly and have regular arguments about who can use the pond. Franny helps them see that sharing the pond is much better than dividing it. In Franny's Treasures, Franny and Bobby ask viewers to help determine if a certain feather belongs to a parrot, a Canadian goose, or a peacock. Together, they all learn about the characteristics of these different birds. B) Franny whirls and twirls into a Mexican fiesta, where she meets a young boy named Carlos and his pet donkey. Carlos is upset because the donkey won't eat her corn. Franny finds a clever way for the donkey to enjoy the corn, and then they all play with a pinata. In Franny's Treasures, Franny asks the audience to help translate an invitation written in Spanish. As they uncover clues, they learn Spanish words such as concierto, amigo, and enchilada. Finally they discover they've been invited to a fiesta.
