67 - What if puppies had laser eyes and could fly?

Remember when all you wanted was a flying laser puppy and your mom said “You’ll blow our roof off!” Let’s see if the old adage is true.

Lessons include: parents may seem unfair, but they’ll do anything to protect us; lasers are better off left to make believe

53 - What If? (The Musical!)

In What If World's first mini-musical, Mama Jamma, Poppa Loo, Zack and Zizi get sent off into three different fairytales, courtesy of Jenkins, the trickster fairy. Can they learn their lessons and find their way back to each other?

Lessons include: If you have something important to say, don't let yourself be silenced; be careful and use common sense in unfamiliar settings; rudeness seldom gets results

A HUGE thanks to Chris Kerrigan, who plays Jenkins and a few other characters, and who wrote all the original music and lyrics for this week's episode! Chris performs in and around LA and runs AllSTAR Cabaret, a theatre and performance workshop for kids in 3rd - 6th grade.

35 - What if humans found an alien spaceship and what if houses built themselves?

Zack and Zizi investigate a strange new house in their local park, only to learn that it's some kind of thinking spaceship! When space-houses start springing up everywhere, the kids need to call an old friend for help: Peter the Realtor (aka Petey the Pirate).  

Lessons include: always let your parents know where you're headed, think about the environment when building, be smart and careful when meeting new people and places

28 - What if zombies were kind to people and didn't do anything to them?

When the whole family votes to visit Zombria on Spring Break, Papa Loo discovers that Zombies aren't much different from you and me. Of course, he embarrasses himself thoroughly in the process.

Lessons include: cultural sensitivity, being open to new experiences, and learning before judging.
