Join Huckle and Lowly as they read stories as they check out a book from the library!

Plot Edit

Huckle and Lowly are going to the Busytown Library. Their librarian Mr. Read-a-Lot picks out what kind of books Huckle likes to read. Mr. Read-a-Lot picks out the book called The Silly Storybook. Huckle and Lowly are about to read some in the park. Then, when they got to the park, Huckle read three fun stories. He read the first story "Absent-Minded Mr. Rabbit", he read the second story "Mr. Fixit Fixes It", and he also read the third story "Pa Pig's New Car". Huckle responds to Lowly that these three stories would be beautiful to share these fun stories with all of Huckle's friends here in Busytown because these stories will know how they did that. But after the end of the third story, Pa Pig forgot to take his glasses again.

  • Mr. Fixit: Whoops! (chuckles) Eh...

((scene changes back to the tree; after reading "Mr. Fixit Fixes It"; chuckling)

  • Huckle Cat: I wonder if Mr. Fixit ever fixed everything right. These stories are really silly, Lowly! Let's see what the next story is about. "Pa Pig's New Car". One day, Pa Pig decided to buy a new car. He certainly needed one, don't you think?

  • Sally Pig: What is it, Pa?

(Sally and Harry Pig laughing)

  • Pa Pig: My glasses! I must've left them at the drug store! We'll have to go back!

(Sally and Harry Pig laughing again; Pa, Sally and Harry Pig drives to the drug store)

(scene changes back to the tree)

  • Huckle Cat: (after reading "Pa Pig's New Car", he and Lowly sees Pa Pig (who forgets his glasses again) with Sally and Harry Pig in the power shovel that passes by, then Huckle and Lowly look at each other) I guess Pa Pig forgot his glasses again! (then they both laugh and then see the power shovel still passing by which is written "THE END" on the back with Harry and Sally Pig waving at the viewers)
  • Narrator: (laughs) The end.
