As they say, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a
What happens to the lion?
It's dressed in the lamb costume.
That's still scary.
Top Act. Yes, I like the sound of that. I will set my sights on
Good luck, bro. You will need it.
No luck needed here. My skill will win the day.
The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain.
Is that a nursery rhyme?
It's an exercise for practicing your diction.
Ooh. I like exercise. But I don't care for rain.
A self-portrait. Oil on canvas.
Wow, that's really good.
I don't know. I like you better covered in paint.
Very funny, brother.
Today feels like the perfect day for a crisp winter hike.
I've got my hiking stick.
I've got my hiking pack.
I've got my um...hiking...pillow. I don't hike much.
Groundhog Day is almost here. What do the fates have in
6 more weeks of winter is okay. I like winter. Snowmen,
getting cozy...ooh, and sledding.
Although spring is pretty great, too. Flowers, birds,
Summer is my favorite, though. Sunshine, longer days...what were
we talking about?
Of all the indignities.
Couldn't have pulled it off without you!
XTREME close-up. I like it.
Your eye really stands out in that picture.
Last night I had a dream…
Was I in it?
Were you flying?
Were you being chased by angry blobs?
No, I dreamt that I was sound asleep with no interruptions. How
Angry blobs would have been cooler.
Spring is in the air. A season for new beginnings.
And pretty flowers.
And great smells!
Plus rain. And thunder!
Thunder!? Go back to the pretty flowers.
It appears Fuzzy Face needs some pointers on
Yeah, more putting together and less ripping apart would be
He gets a little excited.
It's a puzzle. Who wouldn't be excited?
<- this dude.
Happy birthday William Shakespeare!
Ooh! How old is he?
Well, he was born in 1564, so that would have made him 448.
Wow. We better get him something good.
Time for a little round of golf. Fore!!!
Fore, not four!! It's a golfing term...
Seven!!! Am I too late?
Off to do some bird watching. Today, I hope to spot the elusive
Sounds like a beautiful creature to me.
It is indeed. You should tag along.
Count me in.
Another April Fool's Day comes to an end. Thank goodness. Such
You might want to double check your bed tonight...
You better be joking, brother.
Ha ha. We shall see.
Paris. The city of lights. Oh, how I miss it sometimes.
Il est très beau
It means "it is very beautiful" in French.
Hats off to a memorable 2011!
Also known as the "Year of XTREME."
Year of XTREME? I'm afraid I've never heard it called that.
You just did.
Well, it took some doing, but I've earned my Dodge Boss. Who has
the last laugh now?
Look out! Splat.
Not this time, brother.
FINN and I will play doubles. Do you have a partner?
Looks like we accept your challenge.
I'm planning a reading of some of my favorite classics later
You could learn a thing or two, brother.
I'll be there!
I am a Film Fanatic, and I have the badge to prove it!
Why thank you. I quite enjoy the cinema.
What's the cinema?
I already finished all of my summer reading.
There's plenty of time for more!
I could start on my fall reading.
Or, you could cause some mayhem.
Look at what ol' SWIMMINGTON just picked up.
Getting good with the jetpack I see!
No power-ups needed. Awesome!
Hmmm. What should I do while everyone else is exploring the
Practice your basketball
You could exercise your singing voice.
I thought you enjoyed quiet time?
That's 100% true. I just want to use mine wisely.
Why do golfers carry extra socks?
In case they get a hole in one.
It looks like someone found buried treasure.
You mean, we're rich?
Don't spend it all in one place.
Finally, a kingly figure to help you figure out the backyard.
He wasn't the wisest of wise men.
His heart was in the right place.
Unfortunately, his castle was in the sand.
I hope everyone had a fun Father's Day.
Dads deserve a big thank you.
Good job, dads. You're doing great.
All dads deserve a big hug.
Hugs all around.
Could you guys have made a bigger splash?
We tried to keep it reasonable.
Not me. Cannonball!
I have water on me.
Shake it off, GILBERT.
I've been getting a lot of reading done while you guys are in
the backyard adventuring.
What kind of books are you reading?
Well, in honor of the expedition, I've started reading
biographies of great explorers.
Like Roald Amundsen?
He discovered the South Pole!
I'm getting into using my mobile
Awesome! Check out the PlayPicker!
We're headed outside to play some games now.
I vote for Ring Zing!
Ok, how do I turn this on again?
Remember the launch?
How could we forget?
I'm still a little shaken up.
You were right on target.
What were you aiming at?
I was matching and organizing socks when
From whatever to awesome!
I'm a domestic creature, but I couldn't resist a little Sock
Sometime you've just got to do a backflip.
On average, the Atlantic Ocean is the saltiest of Earth's major
Salty - even for an ocean.
The more salt, the better things float!
So the Atlantic is also the floatiest ocean?
I don't think that's a real word.
A history joke. How did the Vikings send secret messages?
By norse code!
Ah, Nordic humor. Buuuurrrrr.
Five days went by fast!
Did it go by fast because you were having so much fun?
Fast is fast, no matter how fun it is.
Guess which historical figures I admire?
Just right! An artist whose style I continue to appreciate.
Who knows how to throw one of these?
Piece of cake!
With the right moves, you can make it float on air!
Go long, SWIMMINGTON!
Still getting the hang of this thing!
It's easy. Just float.
Here's a tip, bro: stay low and then fire up when you need
I see. I will master this soon enough.
I'm clearing my email inbox.
Running out of space?
Yes. My correspondences are long and numerous.
Way to share the knowledge with friends!
I just try to keep up with my public.
Where could GILBERT have gone to? Can you hear me GILBERT?
He's definitely missing. And probably still lost in the
It's our duty to find him!
Who wants to help me clean up after the Talent Show?
Um, I'm busy practicing guitar.
I haven't heard any noise…
Maybe he was practicing air guitar.
What new things will you guys discover in the backyard?
New kinds of sports!
Cute ones I hope!
While writing my novel, I noticed you were all characters.
We certainly have great personalities.
I hope you treat us well.
You're all a big part of the plot.
A good hike is a splendid idea.
I'll go, but no snakes…
Sounds like no fun.
Maybe baby snakes. That are sleeping.
I'll grab my gear.
I always wanted to start a small business. Any ideas?
Under the Bed arts and crafts?
Under the Bed tours!
I do enjoy sharing knowledge.
Once upon a time in an ancient kingdom …
…there was a knight and his loyal horse…
…who rode to save a maiden…
…from a scary dragon…
…with blue flames and laser teeth…
…who disliked fairy tales.
Clearly, my timing is impeccable.
Timing is everything.
No, speed is everything.
Speedy friends who are always on time.
Yup, that's everything.
What should you always bring when you're going to the great
Some people would say a compass… not me!
A sense of adventure!
The Blue Whale is the biggest animal in the
Why are they so big?
Big oceans need big whales in them. Maybe from eating so many
I'll buy that.
Lettuce in! It's freezing out here!
But we're inside.
I didn't know Dwyane Wade was a golfer.
He's got all kinds of skills.
Ah, I see. A renaissance man like myself.
If you wrote a book, what would the first line of your book
"First, I'd like to thank my friends."
Awwwww. How sweet.
I'd start "Once upon a time…"
"My story begins in outer space…"
Excited to find out what happens next, XTREME.
Spooky things are in the night.
Ghoulish ghouls that scare and fright.
Ahh, a Halloween poem. Who will take the next line?
Ghost and goblins…this is getting too scary. I need to leave
I do make quite an entrance.
Hard to argue with that.
It was unforgettable.
What? I don't remember.
CORAL, what kind of tea do the bunnies prefer?
Oh they don't drink tea, they just sniff at the cups.
Ah, of course.
They do enjoy the stuffed carrots.
You guys sure have met a lot of fascinating characters lately!
Ahh, the shark!
And the floating doll.
Don't forget King Neptune!
Not to mention all his loyal subjects.
This little guy really kept the joust moving.
I'm glad he wasn't scared.
If he was scared, he would have gone into a shell.
It proves he's fearless. I want him on my team.
Who would like to read aloud?
I'll use my cool British accent!
Fortunately, we're reading a book by Charles Dickens.
Oh, this will be fun. Where do we start?
This summer, I've been painting my favorite clouds.
Are you noticing any patterns?
Most of them are puffy.
I worry about rain getting in my oil paints.
Have I mentioned my beret…
Every day since we got back.
It does look "tres awesome"
Hey, that's my line!
Your finest words, brother.
Congratulations on making it home. Although, I was enjoying the
peace and quiet…
Yeah right. You totally missed us.
Hey! I brought you a beret.
Which looks smashing I might add.
March-in like a lion, out like a lamb. We should be expecting
the lamb soon.
What'll happen to the lion?
He could sleep in GILBERT's bed.
I just put up a "no lions allowed" sign.
All the world's a stage.
Oh, that's nice. I like that.
It's Shakespeare. You have good taste.
I dug this picture up from some of my earlier travels. Ahh,
Great pic. Italy is beautiful.
I miss it so.
Look out! That building is about to fall on you!
I'm not usually one for rock 'n' roll, but I must admit I'm
hooked on Rock Star Challenge.
Are you becoming a rocker? Hehe.
And what may I ask is a rocker?
Someone who really knows how to rock out!
What's the hardest part about building a real ship in a
Finding a huge bottle.
Ahhh the park. Dwyane Wade you are so right, my
Totally! Freeze tag, football, karate practice…
I was thinking it's the perfect place for a good book.
You're killing the momentum here, bro.
Golfing season has long passed. But indoor golf…that's a different story.
I'll grab my clubs.
Meet you at hole #1.
Owls say who?
Huh? Oh. Hehe.
You mean hoo hoo!
How did the lawn smell you guys? Freshly
So fresh! It was wild!
And it all was cut so fast!
We started in a forest and ended up on a lawn.
I still have grass clippings on me.
Where could GILBERT have gone
to? Can you hear me GILBERT?
Hmmm, he's totally missing.
Where did that little dude go?
Uh oh guys. I think he's this way.
Into the maze we go!
While animals prepare for winter, I prepare for the library.
What's the best way to prepare for the library?
Oh, I just dust the books.
Do you hoard books, like a squirrel that hoards nuts?
No. Not unless I'm making a book fort.
Waiting for an opportunity to wear my monocle.
What's a monocle?
Half of a pair of glasses.
So you can see half of everything.
The funny half!
Today I'm celebrating the contribution of trees.
How are you celebrating exactly?
I've found some chopsticks and I sing to them.
You are one of a kind, SWIMMINGTON.
Why, thank you.
This week I'll begin writing my memoir.
What's a memoir?
It's a book about a person's life, written by that person.
What part of your life will you write about?
The boring part, probably.
Ha! Every day has been an adventure, brother!
The Ring Master. That might be a fitting title for me when it
comes to this place.
Hey, what are you trying to say?
Well, it can be quite a circus at times.
I like the circus.
We need some elephants around here.
We might need a bigger bed for that.
Shall I begin writing an official history of Under The Bed?
Begin at the beginning.
Make sure you get the parts about me right!
CORAL, I'll need to interview you.
Ask away. I'm an open book.
Remember GILBERT's first "pogo stick"?
What's up guys? Oh? My first pogo stick? Ah the memories.
Do you remember breaking your own record?
I remember being stuck and then falling over.
I've played quite a few games recently.
Ten games, nice.
As you would say SWIMMINGTON, very respectable.
I'm taking up photography.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
Then prepare for the words to flow!
I'm stepping down as the president of our picture book club.
Shall we elect a new leader?
Yes! Let's have campaigns and an election!
Who will speak first?
I nominate BROOKE.
I'm off to listen to my collection of vinyl recordings.
An old-fashioned way to play recorded music. It's a plastic disc
with grooves that are read by a needle.
Whoa! That sounds like real ancient technology!
Do you have any rock albums?
Rock music? I should say not!
I'm learning to speak French. Who wants to practice?
Ah yes! That means hello.
I can speak French!
I'd like to lead another nature expedition soon!
It was great learning about plants and animals.
Next time it can be outside.
I'm used to speaking in front of diagrams.
Yes, but we want a field trip.
I will start preparing now then!
I just earned this badge.
I always knew you had it in you.
I'm quite the maestro, when I want to be.
I enjoy strolls Under the Bed on crisp fall days.
I enjoy sunsets Under the Bed.
Me too, as long as it doesn't get too bright for my eyes.
I consider myself a stern, yet fair judge of talent. I expect impressive
You better give me a high score, dude.
I do not play favorites, brother.
Found an old bookshelf and some classics.
Oh! Which ones?
I will not tell. But, I plan to go through them shortly, if
you'd like to join.
Mysterious. Fine, you have my curiosity. See you soon.
Did you know Leonardo Da Vinci invented a wide variety of things
- from musical instruments to flying machines? [Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonardo_da_Vinci]
Did any of his flying machines actually fly?
They flew straight out of his imagination.
And right into the history books! He was a truly creative
Ahh. Time for some peace and quiet.
We can't have that. I'll be right over.
I'm warning you, brother.
1 + 1 = ?
"2" is the right answer I believe.
Two? That makes a cute couple!
School is back in session. What are
you favorite subjects?
Math. Gotta love the logic of
P.E. and History.
Does recess count?
I'm going to read the classics this
summer. Charles Dickens is a favorite.
What are his books like?
The scenes are dark but the
characters are so alive!
He's written a lot of books. Which
one should I start with?
Great Expectations is my
