Muffy’s Classy Classics Club – Muffy buys all of the pretty books and pretty dolls in the Pretty Pioneers series, and invites her friends to join a pretty book club. But she can’t take their criticisms that the books are, well, rather poorly written. Will the book club disband or can Muffy open up to new literary experiences?
Best Enemies – Mom has new clients coming over and they have a daughter who is D.W.’s age….and her name is even W.D.! They’re going to be the best of friends! Turns out, no. They don’t have anything in common. So D.W. and W.D. work together to convince their parents that they’ll just never get along…and somehow, have a lot of fun in the process.

Thursday, May 24 and Wednesday, May 30 @ 3 p.m.

Through the Looking Glasses – Arthur can’t find his glasses and has to get new ones, but all the attention he is getting from these new hipper glasses has gone straight to his head! Buster figures that it’s up to him to get the old Arthur back.

THE BUTLER DID…WHAT?/THE TROUBLE WITH TROPHIES
Friday, May 25 @ 3 p.m.
The Butler Did…What? – Bailey is missing! He just left, leaving no note. With the help of the Baxter Detective Agency, Muffy discovers a series of clues…an old class picture, a receipt for a trumpet and old jazz albums. And Muffy is left wondering, who exactly IS Bailey? And-will he ever come back!?
The Trouble with Trophies - Everyone loves getting trophies, right? It turns out that Fern could not care less about them. Yet Muffy is convinced that Fern must be despairing about never having won anything, and she sets out to give Fern a prize no matter what…. whether Fern wants it or not.

While riding the Dinosaur Train with Buddy and Mom, Tiny gets the idea to gather all the dinosaurs in the “Dinosaurs A to Z” song for a picnic at Troodon Town. The Conductor agrees, and as the Train starts picking up dinosaurs, Tiny, Buddy, Shiny and Don help keep track of how many of the different species have come on board. They learn about classification and organize the dinosaurs by their species, features, and size. When all 26 dinosaurs finally come on board, the Train has more extra cars than it ever has — and they need an additional engine to help pull it! Once they arrive at Troodon Town for the picnic, Tiny leads the 26 different “A to Z” dinosaurs in a fun, rousing, and historic singing of the “Dinosaurs A to Z” song!
