Episode 20: A Peck of Peppers
The Ram in the Pepper Patch is the 19th episode of Season 1 of Between the Lions.
Lionel reads a Mexican story called "Ram in the Pepper Patch" to Leona. Suddenly, the Ram comes out of the book and causes chaos around the library. This continues until a patron (played by Anthony Asbury) wants to check the book out, but he changes his mind once he sees that the book is now called "No Ram in the Pepper Patch". The Ram, after imagining his many fans in Mexico freaking out about his absence from the story, has a change of heart and decides to return to the story.
