In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Francois Clemmons helps X the Owl locate his newest lesson from the Owl Corresponsdence School. Searching the Neighborhood, Francois Clemmons finds French fried onion rings at the tower. Meanwhile, X finds a letter "O" and a letter "C" near the Platypus mound as well as an "S" in the tree. Putting the three letters together, he discovers that this lesson was the first in a OCS course called "Hide and Find."
