Tina's new socks are so wonderful she vows to wear them every day! But they begin to smell really, really bad because Tina will not take them off - even to be washed. The kids finally drag Tina down to the river and make her wash those stinky socks, driving away all the fish with the nasty odour! Tina's mom gets her a new shirt as a reward for finally getting her socks clean. A shirt Tina loves so much, she vows never, ever to take it off!
