"The Best Way to Play" is an episode. It is the first episode that Fuschia and Kiku appear in.


Little Bill and his friends Andrew, Kiku, and cousin Fuschia are acting out their favorite TV show, Space Explorers, before the show comes on. As they watch the program during lunch, a commercial airs for a "Space Explorer" video game. Little Bill asks both Brenda and Big Bill if he can have the game, but they explain that's it's too expensive. Andrew gets the video game for his birthday, but after the kids play it for a few minutes, they realize their own game of pretending to be the characters is more fun and go outside to play.


Little Bill says the episode's title, but there is no repetition of it, not even from Andrew. Instead, the kids shout, "Yea!"

This episode is based on one of the original Little Bill books.


After the closing credits on the Space Explorers show roll, the television set goes completely dark and silent, as if it has either been turned off or the station itself has gone dark. Yet soon after Little Bill and his friends set to talking among themselves, an advertisement for the Space Explorers game flashes on the television. After this, the set once again goes completely dark and silent.

The Space Explorers game is ripoff of Konami's Scramble.
