Joining Shelly the Nanny in her tree-house are Mr. Ree, the world’s greatest puppet detective, Dicky Duck and a whole gang of puppet friends that make beginning phonics a delightful learning experience.

In segment three, Mr. Ree and Shelly follow the "yellow cheese trail" as they and some strange characters continue to discover the sounds of letters. In segment four, Hank the hog, with help from Mr. Vowel and Sir Consonant, learns how to tell the difference between vowels and consonants.
