Bali

Season 1, Episode 26 of 26

THEME: Disabilities/differences/adaptability. Mom and dad tell Bali that some old friends are coming over to visit with their son. But they wanted to warn Bali that their son Mateo is blind. When they arrive, Bali is excited to make another friend, but also a little unsure how to act around a blind person. They get along great and go off to the park with the family. But once there, Bali remembers he promised Tito and his friends that he'd play soccer with them. But Mateo can't play. In his dream, Bali hits a tennis ball over a large wall. Luckily a super tall robot reaches over and gets the ball for him. After a super small robot shows that he could retrieve it as well, Bali understands that there's always more than one way to do things. Back in 'reality', Bali asks Mateo if he'd like to play soccer. Mateo jumps for joy, saying it's his favourite game. The one thing is they need to play with his special ball that has a bell in it so he knows where it is. Joining up with his friends, all have a great time and Bali and Mateo team up to score a goal.
