Sometimes “things” are not always as they seem.
A little boy adopts a large brush to replace his banished dog. The brush totally surprises him when it comes to life and behaves like a dog.
LeVar finds out how "things" are not always what they seem when he visits artists who create 3-D animation. He also visits a designer of floats and giant balloons for the Macy's parade - and takes a trip to the warehouse where the famous Thanksgiving Day Parade balloons and floats come to life.
