Steve: "Ew! There is something brown and crusty on my stick!"

Steve looks at his stick while the cocoon on it begins to CR-ACK.
A butterfly FLIT-A-FLITs away from the stick as Steve watches.
Steve strikes a thoughtful pose as a light bulb, representing an idea, appears above him.
Steve's Idea: "I am an idea!"
Steve begins to PUPATE!
Beaver TOKs on Steve's cocoon.
Steve emerges from the cocoon with a R-R-RIP!
Steve: "Look Beaver! I'm a butterfly!..."

Steve: "...I'm BEAUTIFUL!"
- The process by which caterpillars turn into butterflies is referred to in the scientific community as metamorphosis.
