Grouchology Song

At night, Gordon is delivering some TRASH to OSCAR & he welcomes the viewer. He finds OSCAR on his laptop, about to take an online course in GROUCHology from P.U. (or Putrid University). Gordon then drops the bag of TRASH into OSCARs TRASH CAN then he leaves. On the video, some Pesties introduce star teacher Professor Nikola MESSla & they sing their school song. Professor MESSla gives OSCAR his first GROUCHology question to answer - what do WORMS like to squirm on best? To find the answer, he must set up a GROUCH experiment while obeying 3 rules - he must observe the WORMS, record his findings &, most importantly, annoy someone in the process. OSCAR is ready to start some science & goes off to experiment.

Murray is excited for Abbys Flying Fairy School, when he hears some thunder. He does not have an umbrella & thinks he can fashion 1 himself, but what will he make it w/? "¡Vamos a averiguarlo!," says Ovejita as they look for an answer. At the American Museum of Natural History, the group are introduced to different materials that their umbrellas will be made of.

G: The G Club is preparing for the G-gionals & sings a short song about the guh sound of G. Gym teacher Sue & her Geerios arrive & sing their own song, which stresses the juh sound. As the 2 groups argue over which sound is the correct one, the actual letter G appears to explain he makes both sounds. The 2 work together & sing a song about both sounds.

Abbys Flying Fairy School
Today is Picture Day, & all the students have made themselves up nice, except for Gonnigan, who’s having a bad hair day. Abby conjures up some "Rapunzel-Brand Hair Gel" &, since he has so much hair, uses the whole container on him. While it makes a suave hairdo at first, it soon begins to grow out of control (while Blögg measures its length using Niblet). Abby tries using a baret & Blögg uses a stove-pipe hat to control his hair, but it ends up getting even longer & grabbing hold of everyone. After a twinkle-think, Abby conjures up Papino the Pixie, a barber who cuts his hair to normal length & the class takes their picture.

Super Grover Mouse 2
Super Grover 2.0
At a Rodent Restaurant, a mouse can’t bring his customer his wedge of cheese because the kitchen door closes before he can go through it. Super Grover 2.0 arrives to help. He tries placing a marshmallow in front of the door to hold it open, but it proves to be too light & Super Grover slams into the door. He then places something heavier - an upright piano, which blocks the doorway completely. Super Grover swings the door open in frustration & it sticks itself over his foot. The mouse discovers they must wedge something under the door to keep it open. The only thing available is the wedge of cheese. Once on the other side, Super Grover removes the cheese & the door sends him flying, spilling the customer’s meal.
