Are You My Egg?/Sos (Save Our Salad) (#215H) Duration: 28:46 STEREO TVY

Nature Cat and his pals find a cute, little baby lizard in their yard. The lizard, named Leeza, needs help because she is confused and lost, looking for the rest of her brothers and sister. Nature Cat and his friends will help this little cutie, but all Leeza knows is that she came from a dark, warm, cozy place where she had food. And after awhile it started to feel a little tight inside there and she had to break out of it. Sounds like she hatched from an egg! It's time for Nature Cat and his pals to help this little lizard find her nest. Onward and egg-ward! / When beetles threaten the health of Nature Cat's garden, he enlists the help of his pals to rid his growing vegetable plants of those pesky, leaf-eating bugs and save his salad! But getting rid of the beetles proves to be hard as his spider and ladybug friends aren't up for the task. And Ronald's only idea is using his very own bug spray "Ronald's Bugging Out!" which would be bad because it would get rid of all the bugs! When there doesn't seem to be any way to help his garden, an unlikely super hero arrives to save the day.
