Episode Summary

Oh my! The doctor says Abby has a case of the Sparkle Speckle Fairy Freckles, in which freckles sparkle, glow and eventually fall off. The doctor teaches Abby the magic words to get them back: "Fricka-Fracka, Freckle Back-A."

Abby's freckles jump off of her face, glowing and bouncing all around! One bounces into Hooper's store, where it hides on a cereal box. Another hides in the center of Rosita's flower drawing, another hops onto Baby Bear's polka-dotted underpants, another hides on Leela's nose ring, and still another on Cookie Monster's cookie.

Good thing Abby knows the magic words each time she spots a runaway freckle, and gets all her freckles back on her face. Yay for freckles! Help your child build attention to visual details by looking for little dots all around you.
