128. What if villagers got treasures when they made mistakes?

Zizi and Zach are back! This time, they’re trying to find a place to test out their magical powers. Where better than the Village of Mistake? Wait, I meant where worse? Gosh, we may be making more mistakes than usual this week...

Lessons include: It’s important to make mistakes so that you can learn from them; there are some things that aren’t safe to practice without professional adult supervision.

127. What if Fred the Dog didn’t like sticks?

What do you think would happen to you if you no longer enjoyed your favorite pastime? Well, for Fred, that pastime is… or was… eating sticks. Can he handle losing his life’s simplest joy?

Lessons include: Your favorite pastime can turn into a bad habit if you don’t try other things; it’s okay to indulge sometimes, but try to do it in moderation.

124. What if all of What If World had identical twins?

When Fred catches a “glowed” (think an especially shiny cold), he starts duplicating everyone in What If World with his magical sneezes!

Lessons include: helping others out can leave them with more time and energy to play with you; taking advantage of others care is not very caring

108. What if an evil wizard turned all the cats into dragons but Fred the Dog saved the day?

Doctor Mentory hosts this episode, which takes place on a wild island in the Specific Ocean, where sushi chef lemurs refuse to let lady cats enjoy their all-you-can-eat buffet. Nature is truly astonishing!

Lessons include: Gender should not define our behave or how we treat each other; even traditions need to be updated sometimes, to be more inclusive.

102. What if I was a unicorn and I could give stuff from my horn and Fred the Dog could find my fairy garden?

Fred has to figure out the secret to making a dog house fly, or else he’ll be late to his own inauguration! Fortunately a shapeshifting Finn Again and a generous Miracorn are there to help.

Lessons include: It’s important to think hard when making big decisions (and to not let the small decisions slow you down).

What If World will have a LIVE show and workshop at the DTLA Mini Maker Faire, Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 10 AM – 4 PM at the Los Angeles Central Library. It’s a free event but there is limited space in the storytelling workshops, which will start shortly after the event begins, and end at about noon.
