Bobby the Hopping Robot is the eighth episode of Season 2 of Between the Lions, and episode 38 in total.
Lionel's new toy, Bobby the Hopping Robot, doesn't seem to be working properly. No matter how many times he and his father read the instructions, nothing fixes the problem. Eventually, Leona and Click discover that there was a typo in the instructions.
