(Straining) (Laughing)>>Help me up, please.>>Sorry, Cordy. No can do. Come on down, Rosetta.>>But the art gallery is closed today, no? We have the whole place to ourselves.>>It’s great Mom is letting us wander around while she’s working but those ropes aren’t for playing and neither is this art.>>I’m not supposed to play here?>>Uh-uh. These red ropes are for keeping people from getting too close to the art. It means look but don’t touch.>>Whee! ♪ I’m coming down ♪>>MOM: Lisa! I’ll be up here if you need me.>>Okay, Mom. Hey, you guys. I know a place where we can play with the art.>>Where?>>The Art Smart exhibit!>>Pardon?>>Art Smart. Come on.>>Huh? (Laughing)>>No red ropes here. Go ahead. Touch it. (Chiming)>>Whoa! Music!>>Mom says music is a kind of art. See the sign? Look, touch, listen, smell. Good art makes good sense. (Chiming)>>Look at me, I’m making music.>>Make some art, Cordy.>>One, two, three… Go!

(Rosetta giggling)>>What do you think of this art show, Corduroy? Corduroy? (Corduroy breathing)>>Boo! (Gasping) (Corduroy laughing)>>Great mask!>>Honeysuckle! Mint. Grass! Lavender.>>What do you say we all make some art of our own?>>Mais oui!>>What more could a bear ask for? (Rosetta humming)>>There you go, Cordy.>>Thank you. I need to keep this clay wet. I can’t work with dry clay.>>Do you need some water, Rosetta?>>Hm? Yes, s’il vous plait. I can use the water to rinse my paintbrush.>>Another cup of water coming up.>>Hmm. What is that? Sculpture?>>Uh-huh, just like the one I tried to climb. But it’s smaller. (Sighing) This is hard work.>>But of course you would think it is hard work. (Chuckling) You have not made as much art as I have. Merci.>>Careful, Corduroy, or you’ll become Clayduroy. Your sculpture’s really taking shape.>>What about my painting, Lisa?>>It’s really good.>>It’s nice.>>Good? Nice? Mais non, it’s more than good or nice. It’s– it’s a mouse-terpiece! ♪>>Ta-da! Art you can wear.>>It’s beautiful, Lisa.>>I want to make a bracelet, too.>>You should finish your painting first.>>But it is finished. Don’t you love it?>>Sure I love it.>>Almost done.>>Oh, Cordy, I love your sculpture.>>Love Corduroy’s sculpture? How can that be? Lisa already said she loved my painting.>>What’s wrong, Rosetta?>>Rien. Nothing. Hmph!>>Rosetta?>>I am the artiste!>>Is Rosetta okay?>>Maybe she needs some time to wind down.>>It’s not fair. Lisa can’t love both my painting and Corduroy’s sculpture at the same time. If only I was in a place where people could truly appreciate my art.>>MAN: Oh, Rosetta’s colours!>>WOMAN: Her shapes!>>BOTH: Very, very nice!>>MAN #2: Rosetta’s a very good artiste.>>WOMAN #2: Yes. But have you seen the bear’s sculpture?>>No! Corduroy’s work is better than mine? Ah!>>Notice the fine lines, the perfect shape. A magnificent piece of work. Outstanding. (People exclaiming) Indeed, this sculpture by the artist Corduroy is this art gallery’s greatest, most important masterpiece. (Gasping)>>Don’t you just love it? (People exclaiming)>>There, all finished.>>Great job.>>Look at my painting, Lisa. I did a great job, too. Mine has colour and shapely shapes, and what about my straight lines?>>Watch out, Rosetta!>>Whoa, whoa, whoa! Whoa! (Corduroy gasping) Oh!>>Oh, no. Why did you do that?>>Oh my goodness. I was so upset I kept spinning and my wheels slipped on the paint.>>But why are you so upset?>>You said all these nice things about Corduroy’s art.>>But Lisa said nice things about your art, too.>>You said you loved my painting but then you said you loved Corduroy’s sculpture.>>Rosetta, I can love both your art and Cordy’s art at the same time. I want to show you something. What does this face look like to you?>>Not very happy. The green one looks upset with the purple one.>>Ah, je comprends. The green face looks jealous.>>Jealous? What does that mean?>>It means Rosetta thought I liked your art more than I liked hers.>>I’m sorry I ruined your sculpture. I wanted to be the only artiste. It was wrong.>>That’s okay, Rosetta.>>Look, I’ve ruined my painting.>>I think it’s beautiful.>>So do I.>>You do?>>There’s nothing to be jealous about, Rosetta. (Humming happily) (Laughing) ♪ Your sculpture looks as good as new.>>Rosetta helped me fix it.>>I know. That’s why I want her to have this.>>Wow!>>Oh la la, quelle surprise!

It’s air-conditioned there.>>Will it be nice and cool?>>And on the way back, we can visit…>>The sweet shop? ♪>>I got your favourite flavour, Cordy.>>Cherry?>>Uh-huh.>>Can I have the first bite?>>Sure but you better hurry. It’s starting to melt already. Oh, no!>>The frosty cream!>>It’s even too hot for frosty creams.>>Maybe we can buy another one?>>I don’t have any money left, Cordy.>>How much longer until we get home?>>It’s just around the corner. We’ll be there in no time.>>Can you get us there faster?>>Okay, but you better hold on. ♪ (Panting) We’re here.>>I can’t wait to feel the cool air.>>Gee, it’s just as hot inside.>>Hotter!>>Huh?>>I’m still hot.>>What’s wrong with the air conditioning?>>It hasn’t been working for most of the day.>>Can I go over to Moppy’s to get cool?>>I’m afraid the air conditioning is broken down for the whole building. Pandro’s trying to fix it. ♪>>Can we go to the beach?>>Sorry. The beach is quite a distance away, hon.

Yay! ♪ Huh? This is the beach?>>We’ve just got to use our imaginations.>>How do we do that?>>By creating a picture in our minds and pretending we’re really there.>>All I see is the fire escape. (Laughing)>>Come on, help me look for some umbrellas. We’ll need all we can find.>>Umbrellas? But it’s not raining.>>When you’re at the beach, lots of people sit under colourful umbrellas. It helps protect everyone from the hot sun. Lemonade is perfect for the beach because it’ll help keep us cool. There’s lots of ice in it. (Slurping)>>Mmm!>>I told you this would make a great beach.>>Shouldn’t there be some water?>>Oops, I forgot. We can pretend this water is the cool mist from the ocean.>>That feels nice. But shouldn’t there be a lot of water?>>If you close your eyes, you can hear the waves. And you only get waves when there’s a lot of water. (Traffic roaring)>>I can hear the waves! (Laughing)>>Of course you can. We’re at the beach.>>But I thought a beach had seashells and seagulls.>>Hmm. ♪ These can be our seashells.>>Mm-hm?>>And those pigeons, they can be our seagulls. ♪ Here, Cordy. Put these goggles on. They’ll help keep the sun out of your eyes.>>WEATHER REPORTER:…forecast, plenty of sunshinethrough today with seasonal…>>Now we’re at the beach.>>Yes. This must be the beach.

That’s where it’s going to grow up.>>Someday, I want to look inside the ocean and find out what else lives there.>>I’d like that, too. Feel that ocean breeze?>>It’s so nice and cool. Look out, Lisa!>>Remember how you wanted to see what’s inside the ocean? Now’s our chance. Come on. Here, put this straw in your mouth.>>Are we having more lemonade?>>No, Cordy.
