After a day of unsuccessful hat shopping George takes matters into his own hands and makes a super hat from craft supplies and toys right at home.

But what will happen when the Man accidentally wears the monkey hat at his big presentation?

    Burt Wolf: What We Eat [#106] This Spud's for You: How The Potato Changed The World On two occasions the potato, which originated in South America, changed the course of world history.

This program looks at the details behind these stories: how the potato became a hidden food that saved people during times of war, how it changed the way people farmed, caused a population explosion in Ireland and then destroyed millions of Irish farmers. We'll discover when the French fry arrived in America and how it got turned into a chip. duration 27:55   TVG
