But while Jerry is inside showing Nicole how, the Raiders spot spies silently flying around the tree house, blinking signals to each other, obviously planning an invasion. Raiders to the Rescue! The sleep-out is ruined as Jerry and the Raiders try to capture the invaders. Finally under a magnifying glass, they discover the magic of fireflies. But by then everyone (but Bakko) falls asleep.

Jerry and the Raiders
Hair-Em Scare-Em
Haircut day! Nicole is excited but Jerry hates change especially changing his hair. Suddenly Nicole wails - her caterpillar Stripey is missing!! The kids ask mom for time to look for Stripey. The Raiders find Stripey. He's been captured by the Pod Poacher and is trapped inside a pod. The Raiders are about to slingshot the pod over the fence to save them all when Jerry realizes that it might just be a chrysalis. Sure enough, they watch a beautiful monarch emerge, pretty big change for Stripey. They are all so happy that even Jerry is now ready for a change, at least to his hair.

Everybody is Number One
The fun has just begun as Shemar picks up where Lamar left off, teaching us to be Number One and shine in the second half of the opening routine from the music video. He makes us all want to stand up and raise our hands up, and helps us pretend to go through a tunnel, and serve candy and chicken.
Help make the world a better place through the power of learning.
