  • Leona: LIONEL?

  • WHAT?

  • IF THE MOON IS FULL, CAN IT OVERFLOW?

  • WHAT'S IT MADE OF?

  • HOW FAR AWAY IS IT?

  • I DON'T KNOW.

  • UH, ROCK... FAR.

  • OH.

  • HEY, WHERE ARE YOU GOING?

  • WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE IN BED.

  • I'M GOING TO FIND A BOOK ABOUT THE MOON!

  • WELL, I'M COMING, TOO.

  • ( snoring and cooing )

  • ( quietly ): LEONA?

  • LEONA?

  • LEONA?

  • Click: YAWN.

  • ( yells )

  • I AM IN SLEEP MODE.

  • SHOULDN'T YOU BE, LIONEL?

  • I'M LOOKING FOR LEONA.

  • UM, AREN'T YOU TWO SUPPOSED TO BE IN BED?

  • ( yawning )

  • YEAH, AREN'T WE... UH, YOU, SUPPOSED...

  • ( yawns )

  • WE WILL BE, DADDY

  • AS SOON AS YOU READ THIS BOOK TO US

  • PLEASE...

  • ( yawns )

  • OKAY, BUT, UH...

  • I'LL GET THIS ONE, DEAR.

  • UH...

  • LET'S SEE, WHAT HAVE WE GOT HERE?

  • READ IT, MOM, READ IT.

  • "THE QUEEN WHO WANTED TO TOUCH THE MOON"--

  • A CARIBBEAN FOLK TALE RETOLD BY HOOTIE KABOODLE.

  • HOOTIE KABOODLE.

  • YEAH, GO AHEAD, MOM.

  • ( panting )

  • OH, I SHOULD HAVE CUT BACK ON ALL THOSE MACAROONS.

  • DRAT, I'M ALMOST THERE.

  • BRING UP THE NEXT THING!

  • Cleo: "BUT HER SERVANTS CRIED OUT THAT THEY'D RUN OUT OF STUFF."

  • DON'T GIVE ME EXCUSES.

  • I'VE NOT FAR TO GO.

  • I KNOW WHAT WILL REACH-- THAT BIG, BLACK PIANO.

  • ( stammering )

  • NO BUTS, DO IT!

  • WE'RE BURNING MOONLIGHT HERE.

  • OKAY?!

  • Cleo:

  • OH, OH, OH...

  • ( yelling )

  • OH, THIS IS GOING TO BE BAD.

  • ( crash )

  • WELL...

  • THAT HIT THE SPOT.

  • NOW, LET'S GET SOME SHUTEYE.

  • AND WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THE STORY?

  • RIGHT.

  • WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THE STORY?

  • WE LEARNED THAT IT WAS A TERRIBLE STORY

  • BECAUSE THE QUEEN DIDN'T GET TO TOUCH THE MOON.

  • YEAH, I WANTED HER TO TOUCH THE MOON, TOO.

  • THE STORY TEACHES US THAT YOU CAN GET INTO TROUBLE

  • IF YOU THINK ONLY ABOUT WHAT YOU WANT

  • AND YOU DON'T WATCH WHAT YOU'RE DOING

  • WHILE YOU'RE TRYING TO GET IT.

  • GOOD LESSON.

  • NOW LET'S GET SOME SHUTEYE.

  • NO, I CAN'T SLEEP THINKING ABOUT THAT POOR QUEEN.

  • OH!

  • CAN'T WE TALK ABOUT IT IN THE MORNING, LEONA?

  • WHY?

  • DON'T WORRY, LIONEL TO THE RESCUE!

  • I'LL WRITE A STORY THAT FIXES EVERYTHING:

  • WHERE THE QUEEN TOUCHES THE MOON--

  • AND I'LL WRITE IT REAL SOON.

  • SO WE CAN ALL GO... UH, TO...

  • TO SLEEP, YEAH, YEAH.

  • HUH, DAD, HUH?

  • "MOON."

  • "OO."

  • ( making "m" sound )

  • ( making "oo" sound )

  • "MOO."

  • ( making "t" sound )

  • "TOO."

  • ( making "t" sound )

  • "TOOT."

  • "TOOTH."

  • Commentator: IT'S ANOTHER FINE DAY AT THE NATIONAL WORD CUP MASTERS

  • WHERE THE YOUNG WORD-WRITING PHENOM TIGER WORDS

  • IS STEPPING UP TO THE "T".

  • HE'S GOT TO MAKE THE WORD "TOOTH."

  • IT'S A TRICKY WORD, WITH THE "T" SOUND AT THE BEGINNING

  • THE "OO" SOUND IN THE MIDDLE, AND AT THE END

  • THE INTERESTING "TH" SOUND.

  • T... OO... TH.

  • IF HE MAKES IT, HE WILL WIN A TUBE OF TOOTHPASTE.

  • HE'S TAKING A WRITING IMPLEMENT FROM HIS PENCIL CASE.

  • IT'S A NUMBER-TWO PENCIL, A SMART CHOICE FOR THIS WORD.

  • TIGER POSITIONS HIMSELF AT THE "T."

  • JUST LOOK AT THAT PERFECT STROKE.

  • HE WRITES THE LETTER "O," AND LOOK

  • IT'S A SECOND BEAUTIFULLY EXECUTED LETTER "O"

  • MAKING THE VOWELS "O-O," WHICH MAKES THE SOUND "OO."

  • WITH THE LETTER "T," THAT MAKES THE SOUND "T... OO," "TOO."

  • IT'S REALLY LOOKING GOOD FOR TIGER.

  • NOW ALL HE HAS TO DO IS

  • ADD THE "TH" SOUND AT THE END OF THE WORD.

  • HE RAISES HIS PENCIL...

  • OH, WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!

  • HE WROTE THE LETTER "F," WHICH MAKES THE SOUND "F."

  • HE'S WRITTEN THE WORD "TOOF."

  • BUT... BUT WAIT, HE'S NOTICED HIS MISTAKE.

  • HE'S TURNING HIS PENCIL AROUND, AND HE'S ERASING THE LETTER "F"

  • AND YES, YES, HE'S WRITING THE LETTERS "T-H," "TH"

  • CHANGING THE WORD TO "T... OO... TH."

  • "TOOTH"!

  • HE'S DONE IT AGAIN, AND THERE GOES OUR CHAMPION, TIGER WORDS

  • TO ACCEPT HIS TOOTHPASTE.

  • CONGRATULATIONS, TIGER.

  • "TOOTH."

  • "TOO."

  • ( making "l" sound )

  • "TOOL."

  • "OOL."

  • ( making hard "c" sound )

  • "COOL."

  • AND NOW, ONCE AGAIN, IT'S TIME FOR THE ADVENTURES OF SAM SPUD

  • PARBOILED POTATO DETECTIVE.

  • Potato: THE NAME IS SPUD, SAM SPUD.

  • I WAS WORKING LATE ONE NIGHT.

  • THE LOOSE BULB IN THE NEON SIGN OUTSIDE MY WINDOW

  • WAS ABOUT TO DRIVE ME CRAZY

  • WHEN THERE WAS A KNOCK AT MY DOOR...

  • YEAH?

  • AND SHE WALKED IN.

  • IT HAD BEEN A LONG TIME

  • BUT SHE STILL LOOKED GOOD, REAL GOOD.

  • "COWL"? THAT'S NOT RIGHT.

  • "O-W"-- THAT'S "OW."

  • THAT SHOULD BE "O-O,"-- "OO," "COOL."

  • SHE WAS A CUCUMBER.

  • SHE SAID SHE HAD A SCOOP FOR ME.

  • SHE DID-- TWO SCOOPS, PISTACHIO.

  • SHE KNEW I WAS A FOOL FOR PISTACHIO.

  • THAT'S WHEN SHE LOWERED THE BOOM.

  • I WOKE UP THE NEXT AFTERNOON.

  • IT FELT LIKE SOMEONE WAS DOING A TAP-DANCE ON MY NOODLE.

  • AS A MATTER OF FACT...

  • WAY TO BOOGIE, TOOTS!

  • Girl: MOM, THERE'S A TALKING POTATO WITH A HAT ON AND NO MOUTH.

  • Mother: THAT'S OKAY, DEAR
