Ruby wants to plant marigolds in the garden, but it's in the same place Max has chosen to make a wormcake. He uses all her marigold-planting supplies in the wormcake, leaving Ruby nothing to use for her garden. She is disappointed...until Max gives her the wormcake as a present - along with all of the gardening supplies that he used as ingredients for the wormcake!
- This is the only episode that does not feature a title card on TV. Therefore, it also does not say the episode title.
- A board book by Rosemary Wells titled Max's Worm Cake was released in 2004 based on this episode.
