 87 - What if mommies lasso a dinosaur and give him butterfly kisses (plus blueberry muffin houses) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:21:57

A story for the origins! Go back to a time before Zack was even born, when Mamma Jamma, Papa Loo, and Zizi rented their first house. Sure the house is a blueberry muffin, but surely no one will try to eat it, right? Lessons include: quick fixes and violent solutions just lead to more problems; real change takes time, effort, and an open mind.

Get ready to dance the Crabbarena with Coco Crab, Czarina Ballerina, and all of What If World’s greatest super-heroes. Miss Karen co-hosts another great episode and debuts her Russian accent. Don’t miss this one! Lessons include: You don’t have to be the best at something to have fun doing it; some people have natural talents, but most of us have to work hard to get good at anything

 85.A - Bobby & Miley Pizza Makeliverers (the Song!) | File Type: Unknown | Duration: Unknown

Here's a great song by the fabulous Angela Ferrari of Story Spectacular.

 85 - What if Bobby Robot delivered pizza (plus a bunny robot)? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:16:13

Do you know the story of the Robo-Tortoise and the Rabbot? It’s an old What If World yarn, and Angeli Ferrari of Story Spectacular is going to help retell it! Who will win the Pizza Makelivery Race, Bobby Robot or Miley Rabbot? Lessons include: Strive to add a personal touch and make real connections, and everything you do can be more enjoyable; never underestimate your peers

 84 - What if fair Elise and Fred the dog climbed up Mount Everest (and Ginger & Otis got teleported to What If World)? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:21:32

Lots of new character to meet this week, as Ginger the Loyal and Otis the Aloofest visit What If World and meet Hungry Bungry! Can the misplaced pets get back to What Is World, or will the Oopstone trap them forever?! Lessons include: good rules are made by people who understand their mistakes, and want to keep you from having to repeat them; pollution is a problem we can only solve together!

 83 - What if I could be invisible and lights could shoot? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: Unknown

Over 100 years ago, in the Wild What, Dimmer the Elf faces off against InvisiBen the Unsighlty Troll. Can the clever elf defeat the unseen threat, even though he doesn’t have any elf super powers? Lessons include: there’s no super power like practice; one’s imagination is often scarier than the reality; many of the best inventions are built using other great ideas.

 82 - What if ninja turtles could fly and birds could cry? (plus a dragon guards a spider web from Cthunkle) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:17:45

Uh-oh, a portal got opened to What Is World last week and Cthunkle used it to get back to What If World! Meanwhile, Charlotte Songbird starts feeling less special when she finds out that everyone she meets can fly. Upset, she finds her way to a place where no one deals with their emotions. Could it be another one of Cthunkle’s evil schemes? Lessons include: constantly comparing yourself to others can make anyone unhappy; no amount of super-powers can teach you to deal with your own emotions.

 81 - What if Fair Elise got really frustrated with Alabaster Zero and teleported him to What Is World? (plus Super Mario & Chickens) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:20:38

When a stray spell from a frustrated fairy flings Alabaster into the real world, he’ll have to finally take responsibility for his own actions! Will he learn to take his job seriously, or will he be stuck at Mr. Eric’s house forever? Lessons include: thinking you’re good at something isn’t enough, you have to keep working hard in order to improve; when your goofy antics bother your friends, it’s time to give them a rest What If World will be performing live at Children’s Book World in Santa Monica on June 30th! If you live locally, come check it out.

 80 - What if cows could make money from mooing and sinking into the deep sea and getting treasure box? (plus Abacus, the moon, & the sun) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:18:25

What If World has its first crush! Well, its moon does anyway. Get ready to meet the Moon Cow Crooners and hear Mr. Eric’s first quasi-Australian accent. Just remember, What If World’s accents are all just a little bit different from What Is World’s ;) Lessons include: we should own up to our mistakes rather than make silly excuses; picking on someone is not a good way to show you care

 79 - What if unicorns turned to rocks when they’re shy and a magical fairy came and didn’t make unicorns shy (and aliens controlled us like puppets)? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:18:09

Emmatrice Widdle Pony Unistony has been shyly hiding as a stone in the woods until Fairien the Fairy Alien comes to take over the worl – ahem – make a new friend. Can Fairien be a good friend and respect Emma’s shyness, or will he forget the whole thing and conquer What If World? Lessons include: safety is about learning the smartest way to try something new; fun can be big and loud or little and quiet, you should try a bit of both; make sure you always respect your friends’ boundaries If you enjoyed this week’s story, please check out Greg Webb’s Purple Rocket Podcast! A big thanks to Greg for voicing the character of Fairien.

Professor Mooshpants and Dr. Nozetal are some of What If World’s maddest scientists. They also happen to be among the youngest. Can the brilliant baby and precocious puppy work together to free themselves from a maximum security day care? Or will they have to wait until their parents pick them up?! Lessons include: time flies when you stay engaged and challenged; good friends try out each other’s favorite things and grow in the process!

 77 - What if parents went to school and kids went to work and my doll Rosa came alive and danced with Fair Elise? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:15:34

Mr. Eric teams up with Rhea Pechter of Little Stories for Tiny People this week. Fair Elise and Pixacato are fed up with work and school, respectively. Good thing it’s Freaky Friday! Can Fair Elise survive a day in ballet school? Can Pixacato solve the mystery of the missing robot brains? Did Alabaster Zero also get Freaky Friday’d, or does the grizzled cop just really love ballet?

 76 - What if houses could fly and butterflies could walk and talk and cheetahs could jump the sky and never fall down? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:13:38

Chentle is the fastest of all the cheetahs, but she also wants to be the best climber of all the ninjas and the best flyer of all the rocket ship houses. Can she be the best at everything, and will she be happy when she leaves everyone else in her dust? Lessons include: being more talented or privileged than others doesn’t make you better than them; no individual, no matter how exceptional, is better than a community of well-rounded people.
