Welcome Home, Duck/The Lost Letter L (#213H) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

* Welcome Home, Duck - Frog, excited about Duck's return from a long vacation, makes a "Welcome Home" banner to hang over Duck's nest. Problem is, the dock connecting Frog's log to Duck's nest has broken, so Frog has to find another way across. Frog tries building a sock and a block to replace the dock, but it's not until he builds a rock that he can land on, halfway across the pond, that he's able to get across the water to duck's nest.
* The Lost Letter L - When Duck accidentally breaks the L off Frog's lamp, he decides not to tell Frog. Instead, he'll just fix it himself. Although Bug and Dog try to help, things spiral out of control, and soon Duck has broken a lamp, a lever and even Frog's log! Duck learns that everyone makes mistakes and admitting them sooner rather than later can make a big difference.

Bear's Bed Sled/Sh-Sh-Shark! (#214H) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY (Secondary audio: DVI)

* Bear's Bed Sled - Bear is excited about sledding on the first day of snow, but her plans change when she hurts her toe and is unable to ride her sled. It's up to her friends to come up with a solution that will let Bear stay in bed and go sledding at the same time.
* Sh-Sh-Shark! - Shark is misunderstood. Everyone is afraid of him and won't even give him a chance to prove he's friendly. Everyone but Duck, that is, who doesn't know that the letters s and h together make the 'sh' sound, and therefore doesn't know who Shark is. When Duck introduces his new friend "Sh-ark" to the gang, Duck learns a lesson about the /sh/ sound, while everyone else discovers that acceptance is an important part of friendship.

Hide and Seek - The WordFriends play a game of Hide and Seek where they have to hide behind WordThings that end in "ake." The bugs build a RAKE, and Pig builds a CAKE.
