Here now is pretty Patty Perky to give us the real low-down on ‘Phipps Foaming Flakes’.”

Well, fret no more, for ‘Phipps Foaming Flakes’ are here! ‘Phipps Foaming Flakes’ are guaranteed to take the blues out of your wash day.

Mama (sweetly): “I put cinnamon on it just the way you like it Bubbie. Careful now it’s rather hot – don’t burn your tongue.”
Papa (blowing sounds) “My goodness Beatrice this porridge is very hot! Wait a minute, I have an idea – why don’t we take a walk over to the glade in the woods while breakfast cools? We could see if there are any of those nice wild flowers blooming – you know Beatrice – those purple ones you like so well?”
Mama (delighted): “Oh, yes Barney, that wild lavender – maybe we could bring some home to dry – it makes the linens smell so sweet. How about it Bubbie – would you like to take a walk with us?”

Goldi (pouting): “I don’t see why I always have to help with the dishes anyhow. You know I hate it!”
Sylvia (kindly): “Oh I know, darling. It’s just that with your father away on business, it’s such a help to me.”
Goldi (still pouting – but trying to get her way): “Oh, I know Mother – you are the sweetest Mother a girl ever had – (abruptly) may I go to Mr. Goody’s store to get some candy now?”
Sylvia (absentmindedly): “Why yes, of course dear – oh wait a minute – haven’t you spent all of your allowance for this week?”
Goldi (reluctantly): “Well, yes – but won’t you give me some money? – (whining) after all I did help with the dishes!”
Sylvia (unsure): Oh dear – I don’t think so darling – you know I’m a little short on cash until your father gets home.”
Goldi (sound of feet stamping – beginning to have a tantrum): “I don’t care! You said I could get some candy! I want candy! I WANT CANDY!! (yelling and stamping feet)”
Sylvia (soothingly): “All right – all right. There, there Sweetheart. Just let Mother look in her purse to see what she can find. [sound cue – sounds of shuffling and rummaging in purse] Oh, here we are (counting out change) 10, 20, 25, and 25 makes 50 cents – how’s that Precious?”
Goldi (being a brat): “Is that all you have?”
Sylvia (apologetically): “yes, dear, I’m afraid so. Won’t that do?”
Goldi ( still being bratty): “Well, I suppose so – I’m going to go now – I can’t wait to get some gum balls and ju ju beads.”
Sylvia (with a sigh): “Well darling – have fun – but remember – don’t take the short-cut through the woods – there are wild animals in the woods, so be sure to stay on the path.”
Goldi (happy now with her candy money she’s overly sweet): “Oh yes, Mother dear – I’ll be careful – goodbye (fading away) goodbye.

[sound cue – feet shuffling and leaves crunching]

I thought I saw something dart behind that tree up ahead. [sound cue – walking and crunching sounds] Hello – Hello – Who’s there?”
[sound cue – feet shuffling and leaves crunching]
Goldi (pretending to be polite): “Why – why, if it isn’t Mrs. Cooter – how are you?”
Claudine (suspiciously): “Aren’t you Sylvia and Yale Locks little girl” What were you doing behind that tree?”
Goldi (more confident): “Yes, I’m Goldi Locks. I thought I saw an oddly shaped fungi on the side of that tree – but I was mistaken – it was just a squirrel.”
Claudine (nosy): “Really? Where are you going by yourself? Where is your mother?”
Goldi (getting annoyed): “My Mother is at home and I’m just going to the other side of the woods to Mr. Goody’s store, o.k.?”
Claudine(still nosy): “Really? All by yourself? What are you getting at the store?”
Goldi (rudely): “Yes, really! I’m 10 years old and I’m getting candy – if that’s all right with you!”
Claudine (taken aback): “My, my – you’re a pert little thing aren’t you? Mind you stay on the path – no telling what kind of animals are lurking in those woods – (growls – grrrr! – then laughs).”

[sound cue – walking and leaves coming closer]
Heywood (somewhat reluctantly): “Well, well – Howdy do Miss Cooter. What bring you out this way?”
Claudine (pleased to see Farmer Stack): “I’m on my way to see my sister – you remember my sister – Cora Cooter – don’t you? Well, she and I get together once a week and play mah jongg with some other friends – do you play mah jongg Farmer Stack? (not waiting for an answer she prattles on) Maybe you could join us sometime – you and Mrs. Farmer Stack, of course – hmmmm?”
Heywood (reluctant): “Well, I thank you kindly Miss Cooter – but the wife and I are just too busy with farm work this time of year to join you and your sister.”
Claudine (disappointed): “Oh, well, of course, I understand. Harvesting and canning and all that. Some other time perhaps – (nosy as usual). Are you ..uhm…going to visit someone too?”
Heywood (slowly): Well nooo- I’m just on my way over to Mr. Goody’s store to pick up some more canning jars for the missus. And speaking of that I’d better be on my way – she’s needing those jars right quick! So, I’ll say good day to you Ms. Cooter.”

[sound cue – music – lively… it fades out]

Totley Tea selects only the tiniest young tea leaves with which to make their award-winning tea. So remember folks the next time you need a refreshing pick-me-up make your choice Totley Tea – it’s those tiny little tea leaves in Totley Tea that make all the difference -- why not try a cup today? Remember folks – that’s Totley Tea!
[sound cue – music, lively…it fades out]
Wendall: “ummm, sounds good Patty – thank you! Well, friends, when last we heard – Goldi was approaching a cottage in the woods. It seems as if she has gotten side-tracked from her trip to Mr. Goody’s Store. Hmmmm – I wonder – you don’t suppose her curiosity will get her into trouble do you? Let’s listen in and find out – now back to our story…”

Sgt. York: (sighs, but polite) “Oh, yes of course, Ms. Cooter, What can I do for you today?”
Claudine: (nasal) “Well, I don’t like to be a ‘nosy parker’, but I want to report a case of suspicious activity at the cottage of the Three Bears.”

Page 9

Sgt. York: (unconvinced) “Really? Now just what kind of ‘suspicious activity’ did you see today, Ms. Cooter?”
Claudine: (eager to tell her story) “Well – let me tell you- something’s not right! I was just passing the Woodland Trail when I looked down the Trail and saw someone go into the Bears’ Cottage! What do you think of that?!”
Sgt. York: (bored) “Well, now Ms Cooter, it doesn’t seem all that suspicious if the Bear family has company, now - does it?”
Claudine: (triumphantly) “That’s just it Sgt. York! I happen to know for a fact that the Bears aren’t home just now ( I saw them a few minutes ago in the Woodland Glade) – so the little sneak was going into the Bears’ Cottage by herself – and up to some mischief, no doubt!”
Sgt. York: (alert now) “Wait a minute Ms. Cooter – did you recognize the person who was entering the premises uninvited?”
Claudine: (matter-of-factly) “Well of course I recognized her! It was that daughter of Sylvia and Yale Locks – Goldi, you know the one – well I don’t mean to be unkind, but she is nosy and rude! And I just don’t know what this …..”
Sgt. York: (interrupting) “Wait, wait just a minute – you mean to say you saw Goldi Locks going into the Bears’ home uninvited? You’re sure about that?”
Claudine: (indignantly) “Of course I’m sure – I saw her just as plain as day – sneaking around – the nerve – going into someone’s house when they’re not home! Are you going to do something about it or not?”
Sgt. York: (all business) “Oh yes indeed, Ms Cooter. We’ll check it out right away – I’ll let Det. Sylvester Lester know about your report – thank you Ms. Cooter – goodbye now.”
Claudine: (startled) “Oh, yes, well goodbye then Sgt.”

[sound cue – door opening and closing and feet walking on floor]
Papa: (surprised) “Why, look – my bowl of porridge has been moved – the spoon is in the bowl and…(slowly realizes situation) why I think (loudly) SOMEBODY’S BEEN EATING MY PORRIDGE!!”
Mama: (soothingly) “Now, now, Barney you always think the worst – I’m sure you just forgot and left your spoon in the bowl yourself.”
Papa: (angrily) “I tell you Beatrice I’m sure –(loudly) SOMEBODY’S BEEN EATING MY PORRIDGE!!”
Mama: (unconvinced) “Well now, I’m sure … (her voice trails off)… wait a minute – what’s this? My porridge bowl is tipped over and the porridge has been spilled. You know Barney – you may be right – I think Somebody’s Been Eating My Porridge Too!”
Baby: (upset) “Mama, Papa – look – Somebody’s been eating my porridge and they ate it all up!” (crying – boo, hoo, hoo)
Mama: (upset) “Goodness gracious! There, there Bubbie don’t cry.”
Papa: (worried) “We’d better check the house Beatrice – I don’t like the looks of this. I’m going into the living room you and Bubbie stay here.”
Baby: (anxious) “No Papa, I want to come with you.”
Mama: (firmly) “Yes, Barney – Bubbie and I should come with you – just in case of trouble, you know?”
Papa: (soothingly) “Very well, Beatrice – but you and Bubbie stay behind me.”
Mama: “All right Dear.”
Baby: “O.k. Papa.”
[sound cue – feet tiptoeing on floor]

Page 11

Papa: (questionly) “Look here Beatrice, I don’t remember moving my chair off the rug like this, do you?”

Mama: “No indeed – your chair is always on the rug!”

Mama: (dismayed) “Oh, Barney – all my lovely cushions are tossed on the floor – Somebody’s Been Sitting in My Chair!”
Baby: (very distressed) “Oh, oh, Mama, Papa – LOOK – Somebody’s been sitting in my chair and they BROKE it all to pieces!”
Mama: (upset) “For goodness sakes – whoever would do such a thing? Just look – Bubbie’s chair is in a million pieces!”
Papa: (soothingly) “Now Beatrice – let me take a look here. [sound cue – sound of wood sticks clacking together] Well, all 4 legs are broken, but don’t you worry, Bubbie – a little wood glue – a little time in my workshop – and it will be good as new.”
Baby: (sadly) “Do you really think so Papa?”
Papa: (firmly) “Of course I think so – it will be just fine. Beatrice, I don’t like this – who in the world would come into our house and do such a thing?”
Mama: (worried) “I don’t know, Barney – do you think we ought to look upstairs? (getting worked up) You don’t suppose whoever did this is still in the house, do you?”
Papa: (soothingly and determined) “I tell you there’d better not be anyone else in this house! You know I think the best thing for us to do ( we have to think of Bubbie’s safety, Beatrice) is to call the police and have them come over to check out the rest of the house.”
Mama: (agreeing) “Yes, I agree Barney – we don’t want to take chances – do want me to call or will you?”
Papa: (taking charge) [sound cue – walking and dialing phone]

I’ll call Dear.”

[sound cue – phone ringing]

Page 12

Officer: (matter-of-factly) “Hello – Woodland Police Station – Officer Samantha Spade speaking – what is your emergency?”

Papa: (quietly) “Hello – Officer Spade – this is Barney Bear of 123 Woodland Trail. We’ve had a break-in. Could you send a policeman over right away?”
Officer: “A break-in? You say at 123 Woodland Trail – was anything taken?”
Papa: (urgently) “There’s been some damage to furniture and we think the person may still be in the house – please send someone right away.”
Officer: (surprised) “What? Still in the hour? Oh, I’d get out of there right away if I was you. I’ll send a prowl car right away. Goodbye.”
Papa: “Thank you, Goodbye” (to Mama and Baby) “They’re sending someone over – Officer Spade said we should leave the house – just in case the person is still here, o.k.?”
Mama: (quietly) “All right Barney – come on Bubbie let’s go.”

Det. Lester: (flat voice) “You say you called? We got a ‘suspicious activity’ report from your neighbor – Ms Claudine Cooter – about 15 minutes ago – about a possible intruder – could we have the facts on that sir?”
Papa: (startled) “Why, yes sir – well, Beatrice made porridge for breakfast – and boy, was it hot! So we decided…”
Det. Lester: (interrupting) “Excuse me sir, could we just have the facts, please? Just the facts. Now, is there any evidence that someone has actually been on the premises, sir?”

Page 13

Papa: “Well yes sir – our porridge bowls – someone had been eating our porridge – and our chairs – they were disturbed and Bubbie’s was broken!”

Baby: (anxious) “Yeah, yeah – somebody broke it!”
Det. Lester (flatly) “We just need the facts, son, just the facts. Now – first you folks want to show me where in the house you haven’t gone? Then we’ll take it from there.”
Papa: (concerned) “Well sure – the stairs are right over there and our bedroom is upstairs. (nervous) Should we wait outside?”
Det. Lester: (unconcerned) “No – that won’t be necessary – I feel sure there’s no danger. In fact we’re pretty sure we know WHO’s responsible for all this.
(gasps from everyone. ‘really?’ , etc.)
Det. Lester: “Why don’t you folks just follow us upstairs?”

Mama: (worried) “Well, all right - if you’re sure it’s safe.”
Sgt. York: (matter-of-fact) “Oh yes Ma’am – like Det. Lester says – that report from Ms. Cooter told us who’s most likely responsible – just follow us.”
[sound cue – feet walking on floor]

[sound cue – walking]

Goldi: (big noisy yawn) “Wha…, what’s all the noise? (whining) You woke me up!”
Det. Lester: (sternly) “See here little Missy – just what do you think you’re doing here?”
Goldi: (sweetly) “Why hello Det. Lester – and there’s Sgt. York – what are you all doing here?”
Sgt. York: (sternly) “A better question would be what are you doing here? You do know that this is not your house don’t you?”
Goldi: (laughing) “Not my house! Of course I know this isn’t my house – you are soooo funny, Sgt. York.”
Det. Lester: (sternly) “Now see here young lady, this is no laughing matter. In case you don’t know – breaking and entering is against the law.”
Goldi: (stunned) “Wha…what do you mean? Breaking and entering? (upset now) I didn’t do anything wrong!”
Det. Lester: (matter-of-factly) “Well now, I think that the Bear family here might just disagree with that. How about that Mr. Bear?”
Papa: (sternly) “Young lady, you came into our house while we weren’t home – and without being invited.”
Mama: (sternly) “You made a mess in the kitchen, living room and bedroom!”
Goldi: (stammering) “But… but… I…”
Baby: (interrupting) “And you ate my porridge all up, broke my chair to pieces, and now you’ve been sleeping in my bed!”
Det. Lester: “We’re waiting – what do you have to say for yourself , young lady?”
Goldi: (stammering) “Well…I…but I…really didn’t mean to hurt anything…”

Det. Lester: (firmly) “All right then, why don’t we just head on down to the station house where you can answer a few questions for us?”

Her community service was to consist of helping other Woodland residents by cleaning their cottages. Let’s listen in as Goldi approaches her first cottage.”

We work the mine each day,

The 7 of us

Don’t feud or fuss,

Ho, Ho, Hey, Hey!” (humming continues)

CAST: (all together) “DUM DE DUM DUM!”
Wendall: (smoothly) “Well, folks it looks like Goldi may be getting herself into trouble again – but that’s another story for another time. So, let me say, on behalf of myself and pretty Patty Perky…”
Patty: (very upbeat) “…and for Phipps Foaming Flakes and Totley Tea!”
Wendall: (smoothly) “This is your announcer – Wendall Wonderful – thanking you for tuning in to our program this evening and inviting you back next week for another episode “Fairytale Mystery Theatre” – same time, same station. Good night.”
