Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
In the tiny town of Chewandswallow, it rained soup, snowed mashed potatoes, and sometimes the wind blew in storms of hamburgers.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
"A told b, and b told c, 'I'll meet you at the top of the coconut tree'"--which probably seemed like a good idea until the other 23 members of the gang decided to follow suit.
Hedgie finds Lisa’s lost woolen stocking and pokes his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking gets stuck on his prickles! A mother hen comes by, then a noisy goose, a talkative barn cat, a playful farm dog, a mama pig and her piglets, and a pony. They all laugh at Hedgie, especially when he pretends he's wearing a new hat. But in the end, it is clever Hedgie who has the last laugh.
