Moon Face:
Sweet dreams, children!
Written by: Joe Purdy

The kids observe the full Moon at night and wonder why it seems to have a "face." They research why the light and dark splotches seem to make a face, and ultimately decide to fly to the Moon's surface so they can see for themselves what the light and dark splotches are made of.

  • Continuity Nod: Mindy thinking that the Man in the Moon is real is a nod to "More Than One Moon".
  • Idiot Ball: Mindy believes that the moon has a face, despite having been there in previous episodes and clearly seeing no face. Even Mitchell gets in on the nonsense.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Face 9000 gets jealous when he thinks that the kids like the moon "face" better than him. They reassure him that he'll always be their number one face.
  • The Man in the Moon: Basically, the premise of the episode. Mindy thinks that the moon has a face, and the kids investigate to see what causes those splotches on the moon.

Lone Star 2 - Rocket Kids!:
It's Lone Star, and he's back for more.
Written by: Craig Bartlett

The kids are digging again down by the Lake, and dig up a part of an old rocket. This leads Sydney to tell another "Lone Star" story, this one about how long ago, when Boxwood Terrace was called "Boxwood Territory," early astronomer Lone Star engineered and built the first rockets. This inspires the kids to engineer and build their own "foot rocket."


  • Continuity Nod: The characters reprise their roles from the original episode.
  • Cowboy Episode: Just like the original "Lone Star" episode.
  • Full Moon Silhouette: A silhouette of Lone Star is shown he first appears in this episode. Unlike most examples, however, Lone Star doesn't fly across the moon.
  • Gigantic Moon: Used when Lone Star is introduced.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Western!Sean becomes this towards the end of the episode, admitting to liking the "kooky feller" (Lone Star).
  • Recycled Animation: Footage from the "Lone Star" episode is used during the ending song, albeit with brighter colors.
  • Sequel Episode: To the season 1 episode, "Lone Star".
  • Ship Tease: When Western!Jet asks Western!Sydney if she wants to hear an engineering song, she fans herself and says "My stars!"
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the original episode, the townspeople didn't approve of Lone Star's ideas and kicked him out of town. In this episode, they help him build the rocket and are much kinder and approving of his ideas.
  • Wink "Ding!": When Lone Star winks.
