So, what do you want to do today?

I don't know.

Look! Here she comes.

The same time every day.

My mom says you could set your watch by her.

- That's what I call a big dog! - Wow.

Just a' walkin' the dog

Just a' walkin' her dog

Well, if you don't know how to do it

I'll show you how to walk the dog

Mary Mack, dressed in black

Silver buttons up and down her back

How'd I know? She told me so

She broke a needle, now she can't sew

- Ruby: Let's go! - ♪Walkin' the dog

Just a' walkin' her dog

Well, if you don't know how to do it

I'll show you how to walk the dog

Asked her mama for 15 cents

To see an elephant jump the fence

It jumped so high, it touched the sky

Didn't come back till the fourth of july

Walkin' the dog

Just a' walkin' her dog

Well, if you don't know how to do it

I'll show you how to walk the dog

Mary, Mary, quite contrary

How does your garden grow?♪

Silver bells and cockleshells

Oh my god, slow down!

Hey, kids, do you want to go on an adventure?

Billy, what are you up to?

I feel like getting out and seeing the world.

I feel like dancing!

Who wants to go boppin' with the biggles?

- I do! - I do!

Great!

Ready?

- wow! - neat!

- cool! - Billy, you're amazing.

Why, thank you.

Now, before we can really let our feet fly

we've got to warm up a little.

That's good idea!

How about something easy to get us started

like "head, shoulders, knees and toes"?

Great suggestion!

Let's start shakin' it!

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

And eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Feet and tummies, arms and chins

Arms and chins

Feet and tummies, arms and chins

Arms and chins

And eyes and ears and mouth and shins

Feet and tummies, arms and chins

Arms and chins

Hands and fingers, legs and lips

Legs and lips

Hands and fingers, legs and lips

Legs and lips

And eyes and ears and mouth and hips

Hands and fingers, legs and lips

Legs and lips

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

And eyes and ears and mouth and nose

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes

Head and shoulders, knees and toes

Knees and toes.

Billy, everyone did so well with that.

Now let's try a little box step.

How about we get dressed up

and zap on over to the continent

and trip the light fantastic?

Do what?

The continent?

The light fantastic?

It's another way of saying, "let's go to Europe

and do some fancy dancing."

- yeah! - cool!

Bon voyage!

Right foot right

And left foot left

Right back, right back

Left back, left

And right knee, right knee

Left knee, left

Right kick, left kick

Clap and turn!

We go on the prowl each night

Like an alley cat

Lookin' for some new delight

Like an alley cat

Let's kick now

Meow

Let's turn now

Meow

Let's clap now

Meow

That's what dancing's all about

We move so smooth and get it right

There's no doubt of that

When we dance, we're out of sight

Like an alley cat

Bend a knee and tap your cane

Gently tip your hat

Everybody's doin' the same

Like an alley cat

Let's kick now

Meow

Let's turn now

Meow

Let's clap now

Meow

That's what dancing's all about

We go on the prowl each night

Like an alley cat

Lookin' for some new delight

Like an alley cat.

Billy, dancing is so much fun.

Ruby and I love it.

You could say we're the Fred and Ginger of Biggleland.

Fred and Ginger? They were really famous dancers, right?

That's right. Speaking of famous dancers,

have you ever heard of those talented folks from Veracruz, Mexico,

who do la bamba?

They do the most fabulous footwork you'll ever see.

Can we go see them?

Si. Vamanos mis amigos.

We're going south of the border!

Whoa, magnifico.

Wow, that was fantastic.

Thanks for taking us to Mexico, Billy and Ruby.

De nada.

That means "you're welcome."

Can we go to another country?

( english accent ) of course.

How about jolly old London town?

That would be simply marvelous, old boy.

Right-o.

Hey, I do the accents around here.

Cheerio.

There's a little red caboose right over there.

Sure thing.

Can you even take us back in time?

Well, I think so.

When and where do you want to go?

To one of those great old diners from the 60s.

How much fun.

Let's try!

Wow!

Groovy!

This is really cool.

What's your pleasure?

Hamburgers and fries.
