Fuse 8 n’ Kate: Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile and The House on East 88th Street by Bernard Waber
Sign in. Breakout star Erin Moriarty of " The Boys " explains how her newfound popularity is fueling Season 2 of the hit series. Watch now. The Primm family moves into an old brownstone house on East 88th Street, where they find a crocodile named Lyle in their bathtub. I was six and living in New York when this delightful musical-comedy based on the popular children's books debuted in my home. Sixteen years, several schools and two countries later, I rediscovered this video on my parents' shelf and absconded with it, in the hopes of showing it to my own kids when they arrive. If you're unfamiliar with the story, it follows the adventures of a fairly modern American family in the midst of an unwanted move to the city, who find much to their dismay that a real, live crocodile is resting in their new bathtub!

Today, to make up for the missing episode last week, you get a twofer. Most people remember the title of the second book in the series, but are we to ignore Book 1? I gave Kate the chance to decide which one to do, so what did she decide? To do both, of course! In the course of things we discuss alligators vs. Valenti is a serious jerkwad.
