After eating their "Crispy Flakes" for breakfast, Buffy (Anissa Jones) and Jody (Johnny Whitaker) enter a box-top cereal contest. They want to win the grand prize, a houseboat. The consolation prize call comes when no adult can speak on the phone. For reasons unexplained, the cereal company does not need to speak to an adult. The twins must choose between a child encyclopedia and a baby lamb. They don't know what an encyclopedia is, so the pick the lamb. It is around Easter time so they could eat the lamb, but they decide to keep it as a pet. "Snowball" is beloved by the kids. Uncle Bill (Brian Keith) has a difficult time convincing them to give up the animal. Returning from an extended break due to illness, Mr. French (Sebastian Cabot) returns with this episode and remains with the series until its end.
