    What if cats are rocket ships and you could turn into a polka dot?

    What if cats are rocket ships and you could turn into a polka dot?

    Trying to beat the heat, Sniff the Cat and his friends decide it would be much cooler to play their big annual baseball game in outer space. But how do you fit a stadium full of fans on a rocket ship the size of a cat?

    This story originally aired July 7th, 2017.

    Lessons include: a quick fix is seldom the best fix, stick together when traveling, “beating the heat” also means thinking about global warming.

    What if beds ate pickles? (Recap Recap: Part 2)

    Can Recap truly be Abacus’ brother? Can beds really eat pickles? Sounds like we’ve got a lot to chew on this week.

    Lessons include: We have lots of feelings when there is a big change in our family, and it’s healthy to talk about those feelings; taking responsibility for our actions is part of growing up.

    We’re back to What If World for real, this week, and there’s a new baby in town! Recap?! Can Abacus survive babysitting this omnipotent narrator baby long enough for Fred to get his teeth checked?

    Lessons include: looking after a younger sibling, cousin, or friend is a big responsibility, and can be a rewarding experience; good dental hygiene is important for preventing the appearance of dinosaurs ;)

    What if squids squirted out jello instead of ink?

    What if squids squirted out jello instead of ink?

    In our first ever fanfiction story, we learn about Squid Appreciation Day and Abacus’s favorite food. Thanks a million to Mya, who wrote this story to answer her little brother Gavin’s “What if” question.

    Lessons include: There’s no need to wait for someone else to tell your story! You’ve got all the tools you need to imagine a great one, already.

    What if ninja turtles could fly and birds could cry?

    What if ninja turtles could fly and birds could cry?

    Uh-oh, Cthunkle is back on What If World! Meanwhile, Charlotte Songbird starts feeling less special when she finds out that everyone she meets can fly. Upset, she finds her way to a place where no one deals with their emotions. Could it be another one of Cthunkle’s evil schemes?

    This episode originally aired June 24th, 2018.

    Lessons include: constantly comparing yourself to others can make anyone unhappy; no amount of super-powers can teach you to deal with your own emotions.
