Featured Story[]

This episode features three original stories.


  • The episode was originally going to be aired on November 25, 2002 in Season 3, but it was rescheduled back to September 15, 2003 in Season 4.
  • Running gag: every time someone says yard sale, three monkeys keep popping up, chanting "Yard Sale! Yard Sale! Yard Sale!", until Theo stops them, except for the end, where they don't come, so he repeats and holds the sign and the monkeys ask "Yard Sale?" and he says "Yard Sale!" and so they start chanting it, running towards everything and knocking over Lionel, Leona and Cleo.
  • Theo is performed by Peter Linz in the scenes where he is on the roof, while Tim Lagasse portrays him in the interior scenes.
  • This episode reveals that when Theo and Cleo were dating, before Theo was B.B. the King of Beasts, he was in a band called "Earth, Wind & Barbeque", an obvious parody of Earth, Wind & Fire.
  • The home video release of this episode was available for purchase only as a promotional VHS tape from Chick-fil-A restaurants. It was never reissued by WGBH Boston Video and it is unlikely that PBS Distribution (under the PBS Kids banner) has the rights to release this episode on DVD.
