00:00:40Kids: NARRATOR: It was a hot summer day in Word World, and Dog...
00:00:51(barking) ...was looking for a way to keep cool.
00:00:56(groans) And Sheep...
00:01:02had her own way of cooling off.
00:01:04Well, I think the best way to keep cool is with a little sprinkle of...
00:01:09(knob squeaks) KIDS: Water!
00:01:20Yes, indeedy, there is nothing like nice, cool water for flowers.
00:01:25(barks happily) (laughs): Oh, yes, you are absolutely right, Dog.
00:01:30And for sheep, too.
00:01:32(sighs happily) NARRATOR: And Bear...

00:02:06(Bear sighs) (barks) NARRATOR: Even Frog had his, well, very own way of cooling off.
00:02:16(barking) (panting) What am I doing, Dog?
00:02:21(giggles): Staying cool!
00:02:24(curious bark) It doesn't look that way?
00:02:27(chuckles, pants): Well, just watch!
00:02:30(panting loudly) (loud panting continues) (relieved sigh) (panting) (sighs) (panting) (relieved sigh) (panting) NARRATOR: And now it was time for Dog to cool offhisown way.
00:03:00(Dog pants, whimpers) (pants, whimpers) (curious bark) (whimpers, pants) (surprised bark) (sad bark) (grunting) (soft grunt) (spitting) (curious bark) NARRATOR: Meanwhile, Sheep was enjoying her sprinkler, until...
00:03:42(singing) Ow! Oh! Aah! Oh!
00:03:45Ouch, ouch, ouch, ow!
00:03:48(humming tune) (gasps) Aah! Aah! Aah! Aah!
00:03:56(panting) Ooh! Ee! Ow! (whimpers) Ouch.
00:04:01(whimpers) (loud crash) Ouch again.
00:04:09(groans, pants) What in Word World is going on around here?
00:04:16That's what we came to ask you.
00:04:19I don't know.
00:04:20Do you know, Mr. Narrator?
00:04:22NARRATOR: Uh, me? Well, no.
00:04:24It's a mystery to me, too.
00:04:26(laughs nervously): Uh, uh, pardon me?
00:04:28Hi, Sheep. Hi, Sheep. (barks "Hello") Uh, hi. Uh, I don't mean to interrupt or anything, but d-did-did somebody say "mystery"?
00:04:36NARRATOR: Yes, uh, I did.
00:04:38W-Well, forgive me for being so forward, uh, but this can only mean one thing.
00:04:44This is a job for...
00:04:47(whooshing) ...Detective Sheep, S-H-E-E-P, at your service.
00:04:53Now, then, uh, what seems to be the, uh, trouble?
00:04:57Well, I believe what we have is a drought.
00:05:03Uh, what's a drought?
00:05:05A drought is when you don't have enough water.
00:05:09Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, ah, but the question is, of course, why?
00:05:13Well, we'd better investigate.
00:05:16Hm, yes, yes.
00:05:18Hm, yes. Mm-hmm.
00:05:24What's that down there?
00:05:26Fetch, Dog!
00:05:27(barks "No") (chuckles): Uh... uh, please.
00:05:31(barking) (sniffing excitedly) (barks) (barking) (panting) (barks) Yes, mm-hmm.
00:05:48 a-t- e-r.
00:05:54Hmm. Wait!
00:05:55Those are the same letters that were coming out of my shower!
00:05:59And my water wheel!
00:06:02(barks "And my bowl") And my sprinkler!
00:06:05You know, I'm beginning to have an idea about what is happening here.
00:06:10(curious bark) Oh, most certainly I am, Dog.
00:06:12Frog, what we need now is your chalkboard.
00:06:17(croaks) Many thanks, Frog.
00:06:21(garbled): You're welcome!
00:06:23(grunts): Sorry.
00:06:25(clearly): You're welcome.
00:06:27So, let me get this straight.
00:06:29No one has any...
00:06:31W-a- t-e-r.
00:06:37B-But instead of getting water, we're getting...
00:06:41A-t- e-r.
00:06:47"Ater" instead of "water." That's right!
00:06:52So-so-so, uh, what's missing?
00:06:54(barks "W") Yes! Well done, Dog!
00:07:01The "W" is missing.
00:07:02It seems like all the W's are missing fromeveryone'swater!
00:07:08But where have they gone?
00:07:10Well, the only way to find out is to look where the water starts.
00:07:15(Dog barks curiously) ALL: Mountain!
00:07:23The game is afoot!
00:07:24And so the WordFriends made their way as fast as they could through the heat all the way up to where the water started-- the waterfall at the mountain.
00:07:37It's so hot today.
00:07:40NARRATOR: Where they found their friend Duck.
00:07:44.. 253...
00:07:49(sighs) Well, that's all of them.
00:07:52SHEEP: Aha!
00:07:54Mystery solved.
00:07:56Oh, hi, guys.
00:07:57What you doing?
00:07:58We were just going to ask you the same thing, Duck.
00:08:01Yes, Duck, what are you doing?
00:08:06Glad you asked.
00:08:06I found the greatest game to play up here.
00:08:09Whacking these, uh... these, uh...
00:08:13thing-a-ma-doodles out of the water.
00:08:15I just love these thing-a-ma-doodles.
00:08:17Look how many I got.
00:08:23Actually, Duck, that's not a thing-a-ma-doodle.
00:08:27Huh? It's not?
00:08:28Well, it sure looks like one to me.
00:08:30I mean, it's all pointy. Look.
00:08:32It's the letter "W", Duck.
00:08:35A "w"?
00:08:37Well, I'll be.
00:08:39Don't you just love them anyway?
00:08:41I mean, the way they go down and up and down and up.
00:08:45(quacking) It's like a roller coaster ride.
00:08:48Uh, yes, Duck, but the problem is...
00:08:51well, without them, Word World does not have any water.
00:09:01No water?!
00:09:02Oh, it's so hot. I mean...
00:09:07(panting) I'm getting... thirsty.
00:09:13Who would do such a thing?
00:09:16Well, Duck, I don't mean to point any hooves, but that would be... you.
00:09:23Yes, I'm afraid so, Duck.
00:09:25You see, taking away the "W" from "water," leaves us with just "ater." And you can't drink ater.
00:09:36(quacking) I didn't mean to.
00:09:38I just...
00:09:39That's okay, Duck.
00:09:41It's easy enough to fix.
00:09:42We just have to put the "wha" back into "ater." Sheep's right.
00:09:47So come on, everyone, grab some W's because it's time to...
00:09:52ALL: Build a word!

00:10:44(humming tune) Two points.
00:10:51(humming tune) (humming) (sighs) NARRATOR: So, by adding the "W" back to "ater..." ...everyone cooled down and enjoyed the water again.
00:11:32Oh, water. Yuck.

00:15:55I have the letters "C" and "R" for the "cr" sound.
00:16:00And the "N" for the "nn" sound.
00:16:04But I need an "ow" sound.
00:16:07I just can't remember what letters make the "ow" sound.

00:16:38We can take turns being the princess.
00:16:41Ow! Ow!
00:16:42NARRATOR: It seemed that Sheep and Bear both wanted to be princess.
00:16:47Oh. (panting) I'm sorry, Sheep.

00:17:41(all laughing) Your wish is my command, Princess Sheep.
00:17:48What should my first royal deed be? Uh...
00:17:54Oh. I know.
00:17:55A royal princess needs a royal gown to wear.
00:18:01(clearing throat) Lady Bear, with these letters, please build me a gown.

00:19:19Let's show everyone in World World my gown and crown.
00:19:24I thought it was my turn to wear the crown now.

00:20:42The sun is so warm.
00:20:43I think I should like to be, uh, well, closer to it.

00:22:52But first, I need to be carried back, actually, to my royal, uh, haystack.
00:22:59Huh! Oh...
00:23:00NARRATOR: Poor Bear.
00:23:01She didn't think Sheep would ever let her wear that crown.
00:23:04I don't feel like playing anymore.
00:23:09Well, uh, well, well, what's wrong with Bear?
00:23:12Well, uh, well, I thought shewantedto play princess.
00:23:17(barking) NARRATOR: She did, Sheep, but you never gave her a chance to wear the crown.
00:23:23Oh, no.
00:23:25Every good princess knows the most important part of being a princess is being kind to others.
00:23:32(barks "Yeah") And I wasn't very kind to Bear...
00:23:37oh... was I?
00:23:39Well... Uh-uh.
00:23:41Oh, well, I have to find Bear.

00:23:51(barking) You're right, Dog.
00:23:55Sheep dropped the crown.
00:23:57Maybe you can bring the letters to her.
