The dancing shoes step back inside the book and the lion family reads "Charlie Parker played Be Bop" and groovy inserts happen inside as they make up certain words. After reading the story, the overshoes come back out and they dance to the raga beat.

Insert Busterfield is quite confused, and doesn't know who's playing the saxophone, so Theo explains it's Charlie Parker. Watler and Clay think the music is played by a man called Bird, "never leave you bird alone."

Leona seems to be misspelling the words with "bop and "pop" since she's only 4 years old

Insert Busterfield makes up a real sentence "the music sounded like please stop" and Walter and Clay Pigeon parody "Never leave your bird alone" Buster wants to know what "be bop" is, so Cleo explains, by making up different sentences, and the beat continues.....

The funky beat continues, and Busterfield can't make up a sentence fake, so the overshoes bounce on top of him and he finally gets the idea, never leave your cat alone. Meow.

Insert Theo closes the episode out by saying "Oh Yeah." A full credit crawl follows. And so ends the 1st season of Between the Lions.
