Tyrone and Pablo forecast sunny weather that is perfect for playing basketball. They are just about to start playing when it begins to rain. They decide to climb Mount Olympus to ask Tasha, Goddess of the Weather for sunshine. Along the way they befriend Austin, the God of Laughter and Uniqua, the Goddess of Naps. Then they end up challenging Tasha to a game of basketball. If they win, they get a sunny day, if she wins, it rains forever!


Pablo and Tyrone are at the picnic table in front of Tyrone's house and they introduce themselves as Sportscaster Pablo and Weatherman Tyrone. They pretend to star in a news show. Tyrone forecasts sunny weather. Pablo tells the viewer that sunny weather is perfect for playing basketball. The two friends sing It's a Sunny Day. The backyard transforms into the newscasters' set.

It begins to rain. Pablo asks Tyrone why he forecasted sunny weather when it is pouring out. Tyrone tells him that his forecasts can not be completely accurate all the time. Pablo tells him that they cannot play basketball in the rain and in order to stop the rain, they must ask Tasha, Goddess of the Weather, for it to stop raining. They sing The Gods of Mount Olympus as they discuss what they must do.

The two newscasters journey up the clouds. They spot Austin, God of Laughter, sitting in his throne. Austin sees them and asks them why the chicken crossed the playground. Pablo and Tyrone are confused. Austin answers the question with "To get to the other slide!". He begins laughing helplessly. He sees Pablo and Tyrone just standing in front of him blankly and asks in a loud voice why they are not laughing.

Tyrone begins pretending to laugh. Austin commands the two to laugh and zaps Tyrone, causing him to laugh maniacally. Pablo asks Austin if he could ask the Goddess of the Weather to make it sunny. Austin tells him he cannot as the Goddess of the Weather is always too busy.

Pablo tells him that without sunny weather, they cannot play basketball. Austin asks him what basketball is. Pablo teaches him the basics of basketball while singing Basketball after making him stop Tyrone from laughing. Austin performs a slam-dunk. He is glad and tells Pablo and Tyrone he loves basketball.

Next, Tyrone and Pablo come to Uniqua, Goddess of Naps. Uniqua is sleeping. As Tyrone walks past her, Uniqua wakes up puts a sleeping spell over Tyrone. Tyrone begins sleeping. Pablo asks Uniqua if she could ask Tasha if she could make it sunny. Uniqua tells him she cannot as the Goddess of the Weather is always so busy.

Pablo tells her that without sunny weather, they will not be able to play basketball. Uniqua asks him what basketball is. Pablo teaches Uniqua how to play basketball while singing Basketball again, like with Austin, after making her cause Tyrone to wake up. Uniqua shoots the basketball into the hoop and thanks Pablo for teaching her how to play basketball.

Pablo and Tyrone walk over to Tasha, Goddess of the Weather. They ask if she could make it sunny. She tells them she will never because she is always so busy. She sings I'm Busy. Pablo and Tyrone are disappointed. Uniqua and Austin reveal themselves leaning against a pole. Austin tells Tasha that without sunny weather, basketball cannot be played. Tasha asks him what basketball is. Austin and Uniqua teach her how to play basketball.

The God of Laughter, the Goddess of Naps, and the newscasters challenge Tasha to a basketball match. They also tell her that if she loses, the sun will shine. She tells them that if she wins, it will rain forever. The characters use Tasha's large globe as a basketball. They defeat Tasha.

Tasha makes it sunny. She then tells the others that she enjoys sunny weather as well as basketball. The characters all sing It's a Sunny Day as they express their love for basketball. Tasha's stomach growls. Tyrone asks if the sound was thunder. Tasha tells him it was just her stomach and Pablo invites everyone over to his house for baklava.

The clouds transform into the backyard. The characters sing the end song and run into Pablo's blue house for a snack. Pablo and Tyrone open the previously closed door and exclaim "Thanks for watching!". The end credits for this episode begin.
