ELINOR: "Follow Your Nose"

OLIVE: It's such a
nice day today!

ELINOR: Yeah, it's a perfect
day to go exploring.



ELINOR: Oooh, look at
these beautiful flowers!

OLIVE: [sniffs]

Aaah! They
smell nice too.

[sniffs] Mmm... This one
smells really sweet.

ELINOR: [sniff] Mmm, and this
one smells like some nice soap.

OLIVE: [sniff] Ooh, these
flowers smell a little bit...

like oranges!

ELINOR: [sniff] I smell...
[sniff] oranges too!

ARI: [stuffy nose] Hi,
Elinor. Hi, Olive.

ELINOR: Hi, Ari!

Come smell the
flowers with us.

OLIVE: Yeah, they
smell so nice.

Doesn't this one smell
really sweet?

ARI: [stuffy nose]
Mmm, nope.

OLIVE: Huh?

ELINOR: Try this one.

I think it smells
like soap.

ARI: [sniff]

Nope.

Nothing.

ELINOR: Okay...

OLIVE: What about
that one?

Does it smell like
oranges to you?

ARI: [stuffy nose] [sniff]
Nope, still nothing.

ELINOR: [gasp]
OLIVE: Wow!

ELINOR: You can't smell
any of the flowers?

ARI: Actually, I can't
smell anything at all!

I'm just getting
over a cold...

and my nose is a
little stuffed up.

ARI: [sniff]

Nope, still can't
smell anything.

OLIVE: Aww, what are
you going to do?

ARI: Well, I did figure
something out...

I don't need
to smell!

I can still see and
hear and touch things.

And look, I can do all
my normal tricks.

ARI: Whoa!

Ta-da!

See? Who needs
to smell?

OLIVE: [giggles]

ELINOR: Hmm, that is
a good question, Ari.

I never thought
about it before.

Why do we smell?

OLIVE: What do you
mean, Elinor?

ELINOR: I mean, what is
smelling good for?

Is it just to smell flowers?

OLIVE: Ooooh, dun-dun-duuun -
sounds like a mystery.

ARI: A smelly mystery...

[sniff] Except I
can't smell it.

ELINOR: I know, maybe if we
walk around and smell things,

we can figure out
why we smell.

OLIVE: Good idea,
Elinor.

ARI: [ ]

Smells good
to me!

If I could smell.

ELINOR: We need
more observations!

OLIVE: Mmmm, [sniffs]
what's that smell?

[sniff] It's coming from
Mr. Raccoon's bakery.

C'mon, let's go inside.

KIDS: [sniff] [sigh]

ELINOR: Wow, so many
amazing smells!

OLIVE: [sniff] Mmmmm.

It smells so good.

MR. RACCOON: Why,
hello kids!

How can I help
you today?

ELINOR: We are out
exploring, Mr. Raccoon.

With our noses!

OLIVE: Yeah, we're trying to
figure out why we can smell.

MR. RACCOON: That is
a good question. [giggle]

Well, you came
to the right place.

I've got the best smelling
bakery in town.

Er, of course, as you know, it's
also the only bakery in town.

ELINOR: Do you know why
we can smell, Mr. Raccoon?

MR. RACCOON: Oh, your sense
of smell is very important.

[sniff]

Why it lets you smell yummy
foods, for one thing.

OLIVE: Is that why everything
smells so good here?

MR. RACCOON: Why, yes.

I put all kinds of yummy
and nutritious things...

in my baked goodies.

But remember, just because
something smells good

doesn't mean you
can eat it.

You should always
check with an adult.

ARI: [stuffy nose] My
nose is stuffed up,

and I can't smell
anything right now,

but I definitely remember
how good these breads smell.

MR. RACCOON: Who would
like a few samples.

KIDS: Yes please!

Mmmm...

[sniffs]

ELINOR: Mmmm,
so yummy!

OLIVE: It's delicious,
Mr. Raccoon.

MR. RACCOON: Thank you!

Glad you like them.

ARI: Uh, Mr. Raccoon,

did you forget to put some
ingredients into this?

It...

...doesn't taste
like much.

MR. RACCOON: Oh I hope not,
let me see?

MR. RACCOON: Mmm...
It tastes fine to me.

Ari, did you say that
your nose is stuffed up?

ARI: Yep, I can't
smell anything.

MR. RACCOON: Ah,
well you see,

smelling is a big
part of tasting.

Without smells, food doesn't
taste quite the same.

I wonder how your
stuffy nose...

is affecting your
sense of taste...

Ari. let's try
an experiment,

we'll each have
another piece...

but this time plug your
nose when you eat it.

ELINOR: Hmmm.

It does taste
different.

OLIVE: Yeah, it's not nearly
as good without the smell.

MR. RACCOON: See? Smelling
is a big part of tasting!

ELINOR: So your nose
helps you taste.

That's... so...

interesting!

ARI: [sigh] I wish I could
unstuff my nose...

and enjoy this
yummy treat.

MR. RACCOON: Oh,
I'm sorry, Ari.

Here, take one
with you so you...

can eat it when your
nose clears up again.

ARI: Wow, thanks,
Mr. Raccoon!

MR. RACCOON: Well, I need to go
back to baking some breads.

But I hope you keep
exploring with your noses.

ELINOR: We will,
Mr. Raccoon!

OLIVE: Yeah, thanks!

MR. RACCOON: Bye bye now!

[♪♪♪]

OLIVE: Blergh! pee-ew...

Something doesn't
smell very good.

ELINOR: [sniffs] Blergh!
I smell it too.

Let's see where
it's coming from.

ARI: Wait, we're following
something stinky?

MRS. HIPPO: Hey kids,
what are you up to?

ELINOR: Hi Mrs. Hippo,
we're out exploring smells.

OLIVE: Yeah, we're
trying to figure out...

what smelling is good for and
we noticed something...

that doesn't
smell very good.

ELINOR: So we followed
it here.

MRS. HIPPO: I see.

You probably smelled
this trash here.

OLIVE: [sniff] Ooh,
this is definitely...

where that smell
is coming from.

ELINOR: Hmm...

Mrs. Hippo, why does
trash smell so bad?

MRS. HIPPO: Ah.
Here, take a look.

When things get old and
rotten like this trash,

they smell bad.

The smell tells you that you
probably want to stay away

from it because it
could make you sick.

OLIVE: Oooh!

ARI: [blows nose]

OLIVE: I get it...

ELINOR: So sometimes
smells tell you...

when something is
good to eat...

and sometimes smells tell
you when to stay away?

MRS. HIPPO: Mmhmmm...

ARI: [sniff] Well, I'm glad I
can't smell this stinky trash.

OLIVE: Wow,
smelling is so useful.

It can help us smell and
enjoy things like flowers...

and yummy bread.

But it can also warn us to
stay away from things...

that might be yucky.

MR. RACCOON: Oh,
hello again kids.

Are you all going to
Mr. Dog's barbecue?

ELINOR: Mr. Dog
is having a BBQ?

MR. RACCOON: Yes.

He's going to be grilling
some veggies outside.

I'm sure you're welcome
to come too, kids.

ARI: I love BBQ's!

OLIVE: Me too!

Are you going,
Mrs. Hippo?

MRS. HIPPO: Yes, but...

Mr. Raccoon, do you
know where the BBQ is?

I forgot to ask
Mr. Dog.

[giggle]

MR. RACCOON:
Oh, um...

I was hoping that you
knew, Mrs. Hippo.

ARI: Uh oh.

How are we going to
get to the BBQ...

if we don't know
where it is?

ALL: Hmmm....

ELINOR: Wait a minute!

I have an idea!

Smelling is good for
lots of things.

Maybe it can help us
find Mr. Dog's BBQ, too.

OLIVE: Good idea,
Elinor!

Let's see if we can
smell where the BBQ is.

[sniffs]

ARI: Elephants are
really good at smelling.

OLIVE: [sniffs]

I smell something!

Follow me!

[♪♪♪]

OLIVE: [sniffing]

[♪♪♪]

OLIVE: [sniffing]

[♪♪♪]

[bee buzzing]

[♪♪♪]

OLIVE: [sniffing]

ARI: [gasp] Yes!
We found it!

MR. DOG: Welcome,
everybody!

How did you
find us?

I forgot to tell
everyone where to go.

ELINOR: We followed
our noses, Mr. Dog.

Because smelling is good
for lots of things!

OLIVE: I'm glad we

We learned so much
about smelling.

ELINOR: Yeah, smelling is
good for lots of things.

It can help you
taste things,

it can tell you when something
is not good to eat,

and it can help
you find things.

ARI: Like this BBQ!

Thanks Ms. Llama.

ARI: [gasp] I
can taste it.

That means...

[sniffs]

I can smell again!

ALL: [cheer]
Yay!

[giggle]

ELINOR: When Ari's nose
knows, it knows!

ARI: [sniffs]

MS. MOLE: There are so many
kinds of amazing beetles.

They are my
favorite insect...

[sniffs]

MS. MOLE: Does anyone else
smell something stinky?

OLIVE: [sniff]
Pee-ew!

It's coming from
your desk.

[sniffs]

MS. MOLE: Aha!

An old banana.

MS. MOLE: Eww!

That doesn't smell
very good.

MS. MOLE: Hey, did you know
that some stinks can be useful?

OLIVE: [gasp]

ARI: Really?
ELINOR: Hmm...

MS. MOLE: It's all right
here in this book...

about my favorite
insect: beetles!

MS. MOLE: This is a
pinacate beetle.

It walks around
right in the open.

ELINOR: Isn't the
beetle worried

that the lizard will
try to eat it?

MS. MOLE: Let's see what happens
when this lizard comes closer.

MS. MOLE: First, the beetle
stands on its head.

KIDS: Ooooh!
ARI: Wow!

MS. MOLE: Then, it sprays
stinky stuff at the lizard.

MS. MOLE: The lizard does
not like that stinky stuff.

It leaves and the
beetle is safe.

Saved by the stink!

[laugh]

MS. MOLE: See, sometimes
stinky smells are useful.

MS. MOLE: So, maybe we should
keep this old banana around?

ARI: Uh, Ms. Mole, I
don't think that banana...

will protect us
from any lizards.

MS. MOLE: Maybe it scared
them all away already!

KIDS: [laughter]

[♪♪♪]

ELINOR: 'Leaf Charms"

[effort]

ELINOR: Oooh, look
at this bug, Mom.

It has big horns
on its head!

RANGER RABBIT: Hmm...

I see.

ELINOR: Cool!

RANGER RABBIT: C'mon Elinor!

ELINOR: [giggle]

[♪♪♪]

ELINOR: And this
flower is so cool.

It has so many petals.

Isn't it interesting?

RANGER RABBIT:
It sure is Elinor.

ELINOR: I just
love exploring.

I always find
something new!

RANGER RABBIT:
Exploring is a lot of fun,

but we should get going
or we'll be late.

ELINOR: Where are
we going again, Mom?

RANGER RABBIT:
To Camilla's house.

I need to speak with her
mom about the plans for...

the new forest trail, and
you two can play together.

ELINOR: Oh yeah.

I've never been to
Camila's house before.

ELINOR: I know exactly what
Camilla and I can play.

RANGER RABBIT:
Let me guess...

exploring?

ELINOR: Yes!
It's so much fun.

Wheeeee!

ELINOR: What's this?

Oohhh! What an
interesting leaf.

It looks like a
little fan!

RANGER RABBIT: C'mon
Elinor, we're here!

MS. DROMEDARY:
Ranger Rabbit! Elinor!

Welcome! Come up
and sit with me.

RANGER RABBIT: Hi,
Ms. Dromedary.

MS. DROMEDARY: It's so
great to see you both!

I was just about to have my
drink of water for the week.

Would you like
to join me?

RANGER RABBIT: Sure,
thank you.

ELINOR: Water for
the week?

RANGER RABBIT: [gasp]

MS. DROMEDARY: Here you go.

RANGER RABBIT: Oh,
uh, thank you.

ELINOR: Whoa...

That's...

a lot of water.

ELINOR: Ms. Dromedary, you only
drink water once a week?

MS. DROMEDARY: Ha! Yes, we
camels can drink a lot of water,

and store it inside
our bodies for later.

That's why we get all
our water on Sunday.

It saves time the
rest of the week!

ELINOR: Wow!

MS. DROMEDARY: Oh,
that was delicious.

RANGER RABBIT: Yes,
thank you...

ELINOR: [gasp]

RANGER RABBIT: Ok, should
we talk about...

the new forest
trail plans?

MS. DROMEDARY: [sigh]
Yes, let's.

ELINOR: Excuse me,
is Camilla inside?

MS. DROMEDARY: Of course dear,

I think she's waiting
for you in her room.

RANGER RABBIT: Go ahead,
honey bunny.

We'll see you later.

[♪♪♪]

CAMILLA: Who is it?

ELINOR: Hi, Camilla,
it's me, Elinor.

CAMILLA: Toot-Too-Tooot
Toooot Toooot!

Presenting, her royal
majesty, Queen Camilla!

CAMILLA: Why, hello, Elinor.

How are you this
fine morning?

ELINOR: [giggle]
I am fine.

How are you,
Queen Camilla?

CAMILLA: Oh, you know...

being the queen
keeps me sooo busy.

Would you like a tour of
my royal chambers?

ELINOR: Ok!

[gasp] I mean...

I would love to
see your room.

KIDS: [laugh]

CAMILLA: Here are
my royal books...

CAMILLA: Here is my
royal dresser...

CAMILLA: My royal bed...

CAMILLA: And, most
important of all,

the royal jewels.

ELINOR: Wow...

That's amazing.

CAMILLA: Isn't it cool?

I just love things
with flair.

ELINOR: Flair?

What's flair?

CAMILLA: It's when things
are unique and special.

See, each one of these
charms is different.

ELINOR: They're
so shiny.

CAMILLA: I have a royal
idea what we should play.

ELINOR: Oh! I know, is it
going outside to explore?

CAMILLA: Explore?

ELINOR: Yeah, we could go out
and look at things in Nature,

like trees and plants...

CAMILLA: Hmm,
I don't know.

Outside doesn't
have a lot of flair.

It all looks the same
and it's all so green.

ELINOR: Oh.

Umm, well...

CAMILLA: But I know something
we can play right here.

CAMILLA: That's
perfect!

Now you have
lots of flair.

ELINOR: Wow, I look
like a queen too.

CAMILLA: Queen Camilla
and Queen Elinor!

KIDS: [laugh]

CAMILLA: And now, I'm going to
give you my favorite necklace.

CAMILLA: See, it has a
very special charm.

ELINOR: Camilla, I just
saw that outside.

There was a leaf that looks
just like this charm.

CAMILLA: Really?

A leaf?

Are you sure?

ELINOR: Yeah, the leaf I
saw looked just like this.

CAMILLA: [gasp] Elinor,
you must show me.

Want to go outside
and look for it?

ELINOR: Ok!

CAMILLA: But first, we need
to tell our royal subjects.

ELINOR: Our royal
subjects?

CAMILLA: Yes,
our parents!

ELINOR: Ohhhhh....

KIDS: [laugh]

ELINOR: Mom, we're going
out to the forest.

RANGER RABBIT: What
are you kids up to?

CAMILLA: We're on
a royal quest!

ELINOR: To find
a leaf!

MS. DROMEDARY: Well,
good luck, your highnesses.

KIDS: [giggle]

ELINOR: Thanks!

ELINOR: Here it is!

CAMILLA: [gasp]

Wow, you're
right, Elinor.

It does look like my
favorite charm.

CAMILLA: They're
both flat...

and they both look
like a little fan.

But aren't all
leaves the same shape?

CAMILLA: I thought all
leaves looked the same,

like this one, an
oval with pointy ends.

ELINOR: They're
both leaves.

Not all leaves
look the same,

I learned that with
my observations.

Each kind of plant makes
a different kind of leaf.

ELINOR: See, this leaf
came from this tree.

CAMILLA: Ohhh...

so each kind of plant makes
its own kind of leaf.

That is so...

ELINOR: Interesting?

CAMILLA: Yes!

Does that mean there's a
whole tree or plant...

with leaves that
look like this one?

Wow!

I want to see it!

ELINOR: Hmmm...

I don't see it
around here.

Should we go
look for it?

CAMILLA: I think
that's a royal idea!

KIDS: [giggle]

ELINOR: C'mon, let's go!

[♪♪♪]

KIDS: ♪ Let's look here,
Let's look there, ♪

♪ Leaves are lying
everywhere! ♪

♪ Some are pointy, ♪

♪ Some are round... ♪

CAMILLA: Look at this one
I just found!

[♪♪♪]

KIDS: ♪ Some are long. ♪

♪ Some are thin. ♪

ELINOR: ♪ That's the biggest
leaf I've ever seen! ♪

Woo-hoo!

KIDS: ♪ Let's look here. ♪

♪ Let's look there. ♪

♪ Who knew
nature had ♪

♪ So much flair! ♪

CAMILLA: Wow, Elinor, I had no
idea there were so many

different kinds of leaves.

Look, this one is
so big...

and that one is
so small.

ELINOR: Isn't it
amazing how leaves...

can be so many
different sizes?

CAMILLA: And look, they can
be lots of different shapes.

This one is
really round...

CAMILLA: This one
is really squiggly,

and this one is
really pointy.

ELINOR: Awesome!

CAMILLA: And I thought
all leaves were green,

but they're not.

Look, we found a purple
leaf, and a yellow leaf...

and a red leaf...

ELINOR: Yeah, most
leaves are green,

but they can also be
different colors.

ELINOR: Hmmm...

but we still haven't
found the tree or plant...

that this leaf
comes from.

ELINOR: Huh?

Camilla, look.

It's the same
kind of leaf.

But...

it's yellow?

CAMILLA: Whoa...

ELINOR: Oooh! C'mon, I think
they're coming from over here.

[♪♪♪]

CAMILLA: Eeee!
Look!

We found it!

We found the tree where
the leaves come from.

ELINOR: Yes! Ooooh!

The leaves are starting
to turn yellow.

It must be
almost fall.

CAMILLA: Now these really
look like my favourite charm.

I'm so glad we went
exploring, Elinor.

ELINOR: Me too!

I always find something
interesting.

CAMILLA: All these leaves have
given me a fabulous idea.

C'mon, let's go
back to my house!

MS. DROMEDARY:
Your highness?

Camilla, it's time for
Elinor to go home.

CAMILLA: Ok, we
are almost ready!

[laughs]

MS. DROMEDARY: Oh!

KIDS: Toot-Too-Toot-Toot-Tooot
Toooot!

ELINOR: Presenting...

Queen Camilla and
Queen Elinor!

KIDS: Ta-da!

RANGER RABBIT: Wow, you
girls look amazing.

ELINOR: We went
outside to explore,

and found lots of different
kinds of leaves, Mom.

CAMILLA: Yeah, I thought all
leaves were the same.

The same size, the same
shape, the same color...

But actually there are lots of
different kinds of leaves.

ELINOR: See, there are round
leaves and big leaves...

and squiggly leaves...

CAMILLA: And
yellow leaves!

RANGER RABBIT:
That's right, kids.

Different trees and plants have
different kinds of leaves.

ELINOR: Nature is so
much fun to explore.

CAMILLA: Yes!

As queen, I say
it's true:

Nature has a
lot of flair!

ALL: [laugh]
