Story Tyme 3 is drawn from year 2000 when I wrote a series of puppet scripts for our church children. I decided some of you might like a short story or two, so here goes. It is in Puppet script form and you may feel free to use it yourself.
WHINNY & FRIENDS
Puppet Script #1
“Woof’s Wisdom Lesson”
Knock. Knock. Knock.
Narrator (N): I wonder who that is? Let’s look. [Opens curtains as children say “yeah”]
Well hello Woof. What are you doing here today?
Woof (W): I just had to see all these good-looking kids and adults. Hi kids! Hi adults!
N: Woof. You look different. I thought you were a Yellow Lab?
W: Was. Wanted a change. Cut and dyed my hair. Heard Dalmatians have more fun.
N: Woof! You’re kidding?
W: Nope! Ronnie Rat told me Dalmatians have more fun. He said he watched “101 Dalmatians” and they all had more fun than I seemed to be having.
N: Woof. That was just a movie he watched. There were 101 Dalmatians in the movie and that’s what it was named. But that wasn’t really real.
W: It wasn’t? Ooooh! That Ronnie Rat! Just wait till I get my paws on him!
N: Really, Woof. Don’t you think he taught you a good lesson here?
W: What lesson?
N: Why, that you shouldn’t believe everything you see or hear. You should ask someone you know is wise before you do something you may have to live with a long time, although, you do look kinda cute as a Dalmatian.
W: Really think so? What about you kids? Do you think I look good as a Dalmatian?
N: Well, there you go, Woof. You’ve got it from the experts. Where are you going now?
W: First, I’m going to think about what I’ve done and what you experts have told me, then I’m going to find that rascal rat and tell him a thing or two.
N: Just remember, Woof, you’re a Christian. Do what Jesus would do, OK?
W: OK. See you later. Bye, boys and girls and adults.
N: [closes curtains and dismisses the children]
