The Shellersons - On a trip to Barrel Cactus National Park to enjoy nature in all its glorious splendor, Nature Cat and his pals encounter Shelby, a very sad desert tortoise. Today is Shelby's Shellerson Family Reunion party, but none of the other Shellerson members have shown up! Nature Cat vows to help Shelby and find his family members, "The Shellerson Family Reunion will go on!" Only The Shadow Knows - As Daisy, Hal and Squeeks are having a blast making shadow puppets, Nature Cat is just sitting in a tree, watching and waiting, waiting and watching. For what? It seems that yesterday, Norman the Squirrel appeared in the same tree Nature Cat sits in now, took a look at the ground, and said that if Nature Cat wants to see something "unbelievably incredibly amazingly Nature Cat-y!" he has to be in the same spot at the same time tomorrow. Nature Cat isn't moving until he sees something "unbelievably incredibly amazingly Nature Cat-y!"

Lola doesn't remember where their new home was going to be! It's up to Nature Cat and his pals to find Lola's new home, while learning a little bit about flamingos along the way. What a Tangled Web - Oh no, Nature Cat is really sad today! It seems that someone has been taking all his cat toys, most recently Mr. Silly Sock! How can they find out who the cat toy thief is?

Gimme Shelter - The gang cannot wait to get to Lookout Point, the premiere spot to watch sunsets! It's supposed to be beautiful and colorful! They run on, nothing can stop them now! Uh oh, spoke to soon! A change in the weather does stop them, as it gets really cloudy and windy! Squeeks thinks it's going to rain! Can the gang find shelter before the dastardly downpour? Tally ho! Goin' Batty - Nature Cat can't wait to get to Cocono Cave! At dusk the bats fly out all together into the early evening sky! It's supposed to be an amazing nature sight! But getting there proves to be a big problem for Nature Cat, who has a series of mishaps, leaving him to question his love of nature. Gasp! Oh no, say it isn't so!

Mud Love/Call It A Night (Episode #116H)

KQED 9: Sun, Oct 1, 2017 -- 8:00 AM

* Mud Love - To bring Hal's dream of Mud Appreciation Day to fruition, all his pals must lend a muddy hand, collecting different kinds of mud and setting up for the super fun and super messy celebration. But there is one slight problem, Nature Cat doesn't like mud and really wants no part of any of it!
* Call It a Night - While playing flashlight tag at night, Nature Cat's hat falls off his head onto the ground, and then surprises everyone by scattering off into the dark night! An already scared Nature Cat is now sad, worried that he will never wear his beloved Nature Cat hat again! They'll never be able to find it, it's so dark! Squeeks comes to the rescue with a great idea: to act like other nighttime animals and use some of their other senses to find it.
