Episode Date
89 - What if I could fly over traffic?
00:17:32

Haven’t we all wondered this? Hasn’t everyone in What If World… but wait… most of them can already fly. No way this could be a disaster, unless of course Cthunkle gets involved. He does? Oh forget it.

Lessons include: if everyone refuses to wait their turn, then nobody gets a turn! Patience can be trying, but it can also be an opportunity to entertain yourself in a creative way, or to meet someone new.

88 - What if I jumped on a trampoline and landed on a cloud (and could control the weather)?
00:18:19

Mr. Eric will be joined by the amazing author and voice actor, Jim Weiss, for a reimagining of the Jack and the Beanstalk, starring a little girl named Amalia, a magic trampoline, and a weather-controlling giant!

Lessons include: shutting yourself off from the world won’t make it a better place; not everyone you meet will share your passions, but stick with it and you’re sure to find a welcoming community!

87 - What if mommies lasso a dinosaur and give him butterfly kisses (plus blueberry muffin houses)
00:21:57

A story for the origins! Go back to a time before Zack was even born, when Mamma Jamma, Papa Loo, and Zizi rented their first house. Sure the house is a blueberry muffin, but surely no one will try to eat it, right?

Lessons include: quick fixes and violent solutions just lead to more problems; real change takes time, effort, and an open mind.

86 - What if crabs could dance and super heroes lost their powers and animals got them?
00:16:23

Get ready to dance the Crabbarena with Coco Crab, Czarina Ballerina, and all of What If World’s greatest super-heroes. Miss Karen co-hosts another great episode and debuts her Russian accent. Don’t miss this one!

Lessons include: You don’t have to be the best at something to have fun doing it; some people have natural talents, but most of us have to work hard to get good at anything

85.A - Bobby & Miley Pizza Makeliverers (the Song!)

00:16:13

Do you know the story of the Robo-Tortoise and the Rabbot? It’s an old What If World yarn, and Angeli Ferrari of Story Spectacular is going to help retell it! Who will win the Pizza Makelivery Race, Bobby Robot or Miley Rabbot?

Lessons include: Strive to add a personal touch and make real connections, and everything you do can be more enjoyable; never underestimate your peers

84 - What if fair Elise and Fred the dog climbed up Mount Everest (and Ginger & Otis got teleported to What If World)?
00:21:32

Lots of new character to meet this week, as Ginger the Loyal and Otis the Aloofest visit What If World and meet Hungry Bungry! Can the misplaced pets get back to What Is World, or will the Oopstone trap them forever?!

Lessons include: good rules are made by people who understand their mistakes, and want to keep you from having to repeat them; pollution is a problem we can only solve together!

83 - What if I could be invisible and lights could shoot?

Over 100 years ago, in the Wild What, Dimmer the Elf faces off against InvisiBen the Unsightly Troll. Can the clever elf defeat the unseen threat, even though he doesn’t have any elf super powers?

Lessons include: there’s no super power like practice; one’s imagination is often scarier than the reality; many of the best inventions are built using other great ideas.

82 - What if ninja turtles could fly and birds could cry? (plus a dragon guards a spider web from Cthunkle)
00:17:45

Uh-oh, a portal got opened to What Is World last week and Cthunkle used it to get back to What If World! Meanwhile, Charlotte Songbird starts feeling less special when she finds out that everyone she meets can fly. Upset, she finds her way to a place where no one deals with their emotions. Could it be another one of Cthunkle’s evil schemes?

Lessons include: constantly comparing yourself to others can make anyone unhappy; no amount of super-powers can teach you to deal with your own emotions.

81 - What if Fair Elise got really frustrated with Alabaster Zero and teleported him to What Is World? (plus Super Mario & Chickens)
00:20:38

When a stray spell from a frustrated fairy flings Alabaster into the real world, he’ll have to finally take responsibility for his own actions! Will he learn to take his job seriously, or will he be stuck at Mr. Eric’s house forever?

Lessons include: thinking you’re good at something isn’t enough, you have to keep working hard in order to improve; when your goofy antics bother your friends, it’s time to give them a rest

80 - What if cows could make money from mooing and sinking into the deep sea and getting treasure box? (plus Abacus, the moon, & the sun)
00:18:25

What If World has its first crush! Well, its moon does anyway. Get ready to meet the Moon Cow Crooners and hear Mr. Eric’s first quasi-Australian accent. Just remember, What If World’s accents are all just a little bit different from What Is World’s ;)

Lessons include: we should own up to our mistakes rather than make silly excuses; picking on someone is not a good way to show you care

79 - What if unicorns turned to rocks when they’re shy and a magical fairy came and didn’t make unicorns shy (and aliens controlled us like puppets)?
00:18:09

Emmatrice Widdle Pony Unistony has been shyly hiding as a stone in the woods until Fairien the Fairy Alien comes to take over the worl – ahem – make a new friend. Can Fairien be a good friend and respect Emma’s shyness, or will he forget the whole thing and conquer What If World?

Lessons include: safety is about learning the smartest way to try something new; fun can be big and loud or little and quiet, you should try a bit of both; make sure you always respect your friends’ boundaries
If you enjoyed this week’s story, please check out Greg Webb’s Purple Rocket Podcast! A big thanks to Greg for voicing the character of Fairien.

78 - What if mad scientists had to wear diapers and if you wish for something you got it right beside you?
00:14:19
 Attribution unknown - please let us know if this image is yours so we may credit!

Attribution unknown - please let us know if this image is yours so we may credit!

Professor Mooshpants and Dr. Nozetal are some of What If World’s maddest scientists. They also happen to be among the youngest. Can the brilliant baby and precocious puppy work together to free themselves from a maximum security day care? Or will they have to wait until their parents pick them up?!

Lessons include: time flies when you stay engaged and challenged; good friends try out each other’s favorite things and grow in the process!

77 - What if parents went to school and kids went to work and my doll Rosa came alive and danced with Fair Elise?
00:15:34

Mr. Eric teams up with Rhea Pechter of Little Stories for Tiny People this week. Fair Elise and Pixacato are fed up with work and school, respectively. Good thing it’s Freaky Friday! Can Fair Elise survive a day in ballet school? Can Pixacato solve the mystery of the missing robot brains? Did Alabaster Zero also get Freaky Friday’d, or does the grizzled cop just really love ballet?

Lessons include: both work and school take a special kind of endurance, we should respect each other’s efforts; parents will always look out for you, but that doesn’t mean you can’t look out for them, too!

76 - What if houses could fly and butterflies could walk and talk and cheetahs could jump the sky and never fall down?
00:13:38

Chentle is the fastest of all the cheetahs, but she also wants to be the best climber of all the ninjas and the best flyer of all the rocket ship houses. Can she be the best at everything, and will she be happy when she leaves everyone else in her dust?

Lessons include: being more talented or privileged than others doesn’t make you better than them; no individual, no matter how exceptional, is better than a community of well-rounded people.

75 - What if leaves called big armies to fight dragons and the zombie apocalypse happened?
00:20:56

When Dracomax doesn’t get his rest, his dragon breath goes haywire. Will he take a nap and have some soup, or will What If World end again?

Lessons include: there’s nothing “tough” about hiding your feelings, being honest about your emotions takes real bravery!

74 - What if there was no moon?
00:14:30

Just when What If World got it’s sun back, the moon goes missing! Thank goodness Mr. Eric will have some help from Lindsay and Marshall from Tumble Science Podcast for Kids to answer this question. Here’s a hint: were-creatures won’t be happy…

Lessons include: if you don’t understand the world around you, it’s harder to affect positive change; being rude to get your way will always have negative consequences.

In case you missed it, we now have a P.O. Box! Mr. Eric will be happy to share your letters and drawings online (excluding personal information, of course) or use them to inspire his next story!

73 - What if Mr. Eric answered the longest question ever?
00:16:09

Our Earth Day special is tying up some loose ends from our April Fool’s special, where the sun got stolen! Too bad all of What If World is SOLAR POWERED… but maybe that’s the least of their troubles. Can Petrina, Abacus, JFKat, and Mr. Mouser get the sun back from the clutches of the not-so-dreaded Phoenix Taco?!

Lessons include: renewable energy is plentiful enough to power a whole world; if you have a caring elder or grandparent in your life, they are deserving of your respect and gratitude.

And check out more Earth Day episodes from these kid-friendly podcasts: Cool Facts About Animals, Ear Snacks, Little Stories for Tiny People, and Tumble Science Podcast!

Bonus Episode - The “Corny Wallace” Song
00:01:39

In case some of you missed it last week, Mick Sullivan wrote my new favorite song for our Vampirton episode. If it gets stuck in your head like it did mine, you might want to check out The Past and the Curious, a history podcast for kids

Also, we just got a P.O. Box!!! Mr. Eric will be happy to share your letters and drawings online (excluding personal information, of course) or use them to inspire his next story!

72 - What if jellybeans worked at a grocery store (plus talking cats)?
00:18:02

Meet Mr. Bean and his daughter Julie Bean, who run a little grocery store that brings out the silly in people. But when Jesus Ironhands the Fire Lion (a character invented by listener Teddy) brings his own brand of “humor” to the store, things start to heat up!

Lessons include: humor should feel like a friendly trick, not a personal attack; if you don’t know how to joke with a new friend, joking about yourself first can help break the ice.

Finally, we have a P.O. Box!!! Mr. Eric will be happy to share your letters and drawings online (excluding personal information, of course) or use them to inspire his next story!

71 - What if George Washington had Fred the Zombie Dog as a pet and Alexander Hamilton were alive as a vampire?
00:22:41

Have you heard the latest Oddway hit, Vampirton? It’s a super fresh collabo between Mr. Eric and Mick Sullivan of The Past and the Curious! Okay, okay, it’s not a musical, but stick around to the end of the story... And Lin Manuel Miranda, eat your heart out! 100% kidding, we’re not worthy.

Lessons include: people are easily distracted by cuteness and hilarity, but patience and loyalty are what make lasting friends; you shouldn’t have to imitate others in order to earn approval

70 - What if baby sisters were greek gods and phoenixes turned into tacos instead of ashes?
00:19:32

In our second April Fool’s special, the Wentbridge Timers go up against the Observatorium Grumblers in the biggest (and only-est) basketball game What If World’s ever seen. Pay attention, because the story might try to play some tricks on Mr. Eric.

Remember when all you wanted was a flying laser puppy and your mom said “You’ll blow our roof off!” Let’s see if the old adage is true.

The Observatorium gets a new student, Parsha Parchment-Paper from the esteemed school of Wentbridge! She’s none too happy with her new, underfunded school, and she let’s Abacus know it. Will the wizard’s paper airplane lesson win her over or will it nearly destroy the school… again…

61 - What if Abacus and JFKat drank a potion at the same time and switched minds?
00:19:53

Lessons include: you shouldn’t have to mistreat one friend in order to make another happy, good listening doesn’t mean tuning the rest of the world out.

00:14:23

Do you remember your first time having a babysitter? Did you wonder what it was going to be like? Zizi, Fair Elise, and Lola the Rabbit let their imaginations get away with them as they try to figure out the mystery.

Lessons include: Our fears are often far worse than the reality, talking out your fears with friends is a healthy exercise.

00:16:37

Merry Ifmas, everyone! Scully the Squid has had a tough year and isn’t really sure what he wants, so Santaphant gives him a telepathic toy to help figure it out. Will Scully learn to speak his mind?

Rapunziti, a new Italian restaurant, is just about to open when another restaurant jealously traps her on top of a stone tower. Will the young restaurant ever escape? Or will Chewville forever be robbed of good eats?!

Mr. Eric managed to come out of his turkey and pie coma just long enough to post one of his favorite episodes, the story of Shark Wars - and of course we messed it up the first time! So sorry if you downloaded the truncated episode. The full episode is now available to download. (Oops!)

Fred the Dog and JFKat will make a quick appearance after the story, so stay tuned. What If World will be back with an all new episode next week!

53 - What If? (The Musical!)
00:24:33

In What If World's first mini-musical, Mama Jamma, Poppa Loo, Zack and Zizi get sent off into three different fairytales, courtesy of Jenkins, the trickster fairy. Can they learn their lessons and find their way back to each other?

Lessons include: If you have something important to say, don't let yourself be silenced; be careful and use common sense in unfamiliar settings; rudeness seldom gets results

00:19:55
