** While Lilly hasn't been seen the most in some of the books. In the AnimatedAdaptation, she has around 4 or 5 episodes where she's the main character of the episode or a secondary character. The most notable would be "Don't Lost It Lilly" and "Lifesaver Lilly," both dealing with her forgetfulness problem. "Lifesaver Lilly" is the best example, which takes that issue more seriously unlike Don't Lost It Lilly since she really wants to take care of the school's class pet.

She even talks to herself alone on her bed about admitting that she's to forgetful to take care of the class pet.
** Claude only showed up in the original "Timothy Goes To School" book and hardly shows up in Yoko & Friends but has a bigger presence in the animated series.
