[Ben] Ben steps up to take the shot.
There's the double-time dribble,
the hot potato,
and a space-station somersault.
-He shoots and he scores!
-[all cheering]
[Angie] Ben! Hey, Ben!
You in this game or not?
I'm in!
The crowd falls silent.
Ben only needs to not fall over
to stay in the game.
He approaches the hoop, and
Whoa, whoa! Oof!
Ooh-hoo! Ugly!
Somebody grab the first-aid kit
we keep for Ben!
What's this? Mickey's got the ball.
He dribbles, he weaves and scores!
[cheering and whistling]
[laughs] Nice one!
Mind if a couple of super-cool
Dream Team pros join in?
[chuckles] Yeah, sure. Know any?
Booyah! Nailed it! [chuckles]
Good job, Clarence.
-Hey, Dad!
-Hey, Benny!
How'd it go on the big math test today?
Pretty good, 19 out of 20.
-[Ben] See ya, guys!
-[Bill] Bye, Clarence!
-[Angie] Bye!
-[Mickey] See ya!
So, uh, how'd it go on the test, Mickey?
Yeah, great. I got an F.
Wait, did you say F?
Yeah, but F is like, you know,
near the top of the alphabet,
so I could've done worse,
like a Z, right? [laughs]
Uh, this isn't a joke, Mickey.
You gotta bring your grades up, or
you won't be playing basketball anymore.
Huh? Ah, you're funny, Dad.
Uh-uh, sorry, all-star, not kidding.
I'm gonna go talk to your teacher now,
and you're gonna head
straight home to study.
Okay, Mickey?
Mickey, the clown, always jokin' around.
Yeah, that's me.
People say I'm the life of the party ♪
'Cause I tell a joke or two ♪
Although I might be
Laughin' loud and hearty ♪
Deep inside, I'm blue ♪
So take a good look at my face ♪
You'll see my smile looks out of place ♪
If you look closer it's easy to trace ♪
The tracks of my tears ♪
I can do this. I can do this!
Who am I kidding?
[knocking at door]
Ben, you gotta help me!
My dad wants me
to sit that whack math test again,
and if I don't pass,
I have to quit the basketball team.
But that's a catastrophe!
Oh, boy, we got a lot of work to do.
How about the next one,
what's 12 divided by 3?
Uh, I don't know.
Think of it like you got 12 marbles
and you have to put them in 3 piles.
Okay. Uh
Hmm, ah.
So, what'd you get?
A headache!
What am I gonna do, Benny?
I gotta pass that test.
Uh, I got a suggestion. I mean, an idea!
That is Maestro's castle.
Legend has it The Maestro
knows the answer to everything.
Yeah? I sure hope that includes math.
Only one way to find out.
ABC, easy as one, two, three!
[laughs] Hey, if it ain't Benny Boy,
Angie Girl and Mickey-McMickster!
[tires screeching] Gimme five!
Oops. So what y'all doin' here?
Jimmy, we have to find The Maestro.
'Cause I need his help.
Plus, he just sounds like a cool guy.
I've always wanted to
meet the mysterious Maestro, too. Hop in!
-[all grunt]
-[tires screech]
Let's rock and roll!
Wait, there it is!
Hold onto your haircuts!
We're gonna get loopy!
[laughs] Upside down, turned around!
And then, ta-da! Here we are. Huh?
How can it still be miles away?
No biggie. There's gotta be a way.
Maybe we need to ask someone.
Yeah, and I know who.
[beatboxing] Hey!
Hey, Dancin'!
You know the way to The Maestro?
Sure thing!
You can groove this way! Ha ha!
Groove left, scoot right.
Shimmy left, loop a-round,
upside down and huh?
No way!
[Skywriter] Hello, my friends!
[laughs] Ah, Skywriter!
We're tryin' to find The Maestro.
Whoa! [laughs]
You're gonna need
all the help you can get.
I'll keep my eyes on his palace
and you follow my sky-trail, okay?
This way! Then that-a-way! [laughs]
And here we are! [gasps]
Oh, my!
I thought you were keeping an eye on it.
I did my best, but sometimes,
The Maestro just won't be found.
Well, we tried. But I reckon
this wild goose chase is done.
No way!
I gotta see The Maestro
to get some answers.
-I'm not gonna fail that test again.
-Wait, Mickey.
Come back!
Maestro! Maestro, I need you!
Come on, Mickey, wait for us!
-[singing] I need you ♪
-Need you ♪
-Need you ♪
-Need you ♪
So take a good look at my face ♪
You'll see my smile looks out of place ♪
Look a little bit closer
And it's easy to trace ♪
The tracks of my tears ♪
Oh. It's okay, Mickey.
How is it okay?
If I don't find The Maestro,
I won't get to do my favorite thing
in the world anymore.
Wait! Look!
They're they're tracks!
Oh, maybe The Maestro's showing us
the way to his castle?
-You think so?
-[Jimmy laughs] Abso-revving-lutely!
All aboard the Jimmy Mack-o-Motive!
[engine revving]
[laughs] Okay, folks, end of the line!
So how do we get over? Swim?
[Bubbles] Hello! Who wishes to pass
the Incredibubble River?
Uh, we do.
[Bubbles] "We do"? Hmm.
[stuttering] Well, unusual name,
but no matter.
All right, We Do, uh, you must answer
one impossibubble question.
-Okay, I got this.
-[Bubbles] Ah-ah-ah!
It's only allowa-bubble
for Mr. We Do himself to answer.
Me? [scoffs]
We may as well give up now!
-Come on, Mickey!
-You can do this.
If there are four incredibubble bubbles,
with three adorabubble fish in each one,
how many fish are there in total a-bubble?
I don't know!
And I'm getting a headache again.
Wait! I know how you can do it.
You're playing basketball, right?
If you score four times
and each one is a three-pointer,
-what is your total score?
-[chuckles] That's easy. Twelve. Duh!
[Bubbles] Twelve is correct!
Well done, We Do,
an admirabubble effort!
You may pass!
Hey! Where did The Maestro's palace go?
Still can't get there.
How am I gonna pass my test now?
I don't think
you need The Maestro anymore.
Yeah, you just figured out
that math question by yourself.
I did?
Yeah! Way to go, Mickey-McMickster!
Whoo-hoo! [laughing]
Whoo-hoo! Hey, Mickey, you see that?
Nah. Sorry, I'm concentrating on this.
Hey, Mickey? Ready to resit the test?
Good luck.
[softly] I got this.
Just like basketball, that's all it is.
Just like basketball.
Don't tell me.
[laughs] Gotcha! I passed.
-I knew you could do it!
So, who's down to shoot some hoops?
Actually, you're just in time
to see Ben's new approach.
I figured that if you can get better
at math using basketball,
I can get better at basketball using math.
Watch and learn.
May need to recalculate.
