Blast to Earth's Past/The Great Climb

Deliria thinks she's found a way to own the entire Earth - by taking a time machine back to when there were no people on the planet, and being the first to claim it. Zeeter accidentally gets whisked along on the time trip, which takes them back to 250 million years ago when Earth's continents were combined as one. Going forward in time to the present, Deliria's clunky time machine continually breaks down. In between encounters with dinosaurs and an Ice Age, Zeeter gets to observe how today's continents were formed because of Plate Tectonics.

If It Looks Like A Plant/Splitsville

When Deliria shapeshifts into a sickly looking plant to avoid a citation, Wizzy and Wigg take "the plant" to Headquarters to take care of it. To better understand their new responsibility, the older Zpers teach the youngsters the qualities of living things (and the difference between a plant and an animal). Wizzy and Wigg decide to study "the plant", to figure out how a plant makes its food. However Deliria isn't a plant, so she doesn't respond like the others. It isn't long before the curious duo deduce that their "plant" is really an animal.
