Dot and Dash use their imaginations while in a box.


Dash throws a ball and imagines that it is a rocket ship with him inside it.


Dot and Dash look through binoculars at their house until they look at each other. They then start laughing and the station logo is seen.

Dot walks around the house until she reaches the window. She sees some binoculars and looks through them. We see Dash outside having a picnic. As the station logo shows up, Dot rushes out to join him.
