Storyline

A thunderstorm strikes the forest, knocking a tree into the rainbowl. Zach and Annie volunteer to clean it out, along with Plato, Ari, and Aurora, but Sock isn't interested in helping. Plato tells him the story "How the Camel Got His Hump", where another beast's how not working gave him trouble. When Sock agrees to help but complains of boredom, Plato tells "Tom Sawyer Gives Up the Brush", where it was learned that working is more enjoyable than laziness as long as the right viewpoint is there.

Goofs

At the beginning, water spouts from a hole in the ground until it goes beyond where it can be seen on screen, with nothing on the water. But in the next shot it is shown from behind, and lowering a bit, with Ari resting atop it. See more »

Quotes
