Red Hat, Green Hat is the twenty-second episode of Season 1 of Between the Lions.


"Lionel reads a book Red Hat, Green Hat about two friends in Africa who go insane that one either side of a farmer's hat was red or green. He wonders why Leona would want a troublemaking hat like in the story either because she doesn't know, she didn't read it, or it's that she can't read and she's too young! When Leona is shown with her own hat (red or green on either side) Lionel thinks it's dangerous and Leona complains about thinking everyone complaining about his own red hat. However, everyone goes insane over either side green or red on Leona's hat she made."
