Long Description: 
THE IN CROWD: When a snooty new girl with a snazzy new mountain bike and all the latest fashions moves into town, Sister finds herself torn between practising for the upcoming Double-Dutch contest, and trying to fit in with the new girl's In-Crowd. Sister finally decides to hang up her beloved skipping rope and starts dressing and acting like the others. However, although her new clothes help Sister fit in with the In-Crowd, seeing herself in them makes her realize that she' s trying to be something she's not and she decides, once and for all, that she likes her pink jumper, she likes her hair ribbon, she likes her Double-Dutch and most of all, she likes herself just the way she is. FLY IT: Brother and Freddy team up to try and create an innovative flying device for their fifth grade science project. Their hopes are dashed after a series of unsuccessful test flights and they decide to give up on the whole notion of being inventors. After having a talk with veteran inventor, Professor Actual Factual, the two cubs are encouraged to keep trying and ultimately they succeed in making a balloon-propelled aircraft that impresses the entire class.
