Characters FeaturedEdit


  • Humpty Dumpty is referenced by the spider who frightened Little Miss Muffet, but the rhyme does not appear in this video.
  • Higgledy, Piggledy, Pudding and Pie! Come, Mother Goose, Come Out of the Sky! is not the song or the Mother Goose nursery rhyme. They are the magic words.
  • Stock animation footage of the sign plane title, "Richard Scarry's Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever" replaced with "Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Video Ever", and the birds-eye view of Busytown are reused from Richard Scarry's Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever. The camera doesn't dolly in, but it fades to nighttime in Busytown then dolly in. However, the airplane title animation is smoother and a little bit choppy.


(at bedtime at Huckle's house)

  • Mother Cat: (reads the Mother Goose book and sings) ♪ Little Jack Horner sat in a corner eating a Christmas pie. He put in his thumb and pulled out a plum and said... ♪
  • Huckle Cat: (singing) ♪ "What a good boy am I!" ♪ (giggling)
  • Mother Cat: (closes the Mother Goose book) That's enough Mother Goose for tonight. (puts down the book and tucks Huckle in bed) It's time to go to sleep, my little Huckle. Sweet dreams.
  • Huckle Cat: But I don't want to go to sleep without Lowly. Can we look for him some more?
  • Father Cat: I'm sure Lowly is around here somewhere, Huckle. I'll find him later. But right now, it's time for you to go to sleep.
  • Huckle Cat: Just one more song... please?
  • Mother Cat: Okay, just one more. (sits back down and then sings one more song) ♪ Starlight, starbright, first star I see tonight. I wish I may, I wish I might, have this wish I wish tonight. ♪

(in Mother Goose Land, after he, Dennis and Patty Elephant and Lily Bunny play London Bridge)
  • Huckle Cat: (panting) That was fun!
  • Dennis Elephant: Let's play again!
  • Huckle Cat: I'd like to, but right now I'd better look for my friend, Lowly Worm. He's lost. Can you tell me where I am? I think I'm lost too.
  • Patty Elephant: Why, you're in Mother Goose Land!
  • Huckle Cat: Mother Goose Land?
  • Lily Bunny: (comes up to Huckle) Yes. It's the nicest place to be. Why don't you stay here and play with us some more?
  • Huckle Cat: I really must find Lowly. Have you seen him?
  • Lily Bunny: What does he look like?
  • Huckle Cat: Well, he kind of looks like uh... like... like Lowly Worm.

(Patty and Dennis Elephant shake their heads no)

  • Lily Bunny: No, we haven't seen him. Sorry.
  • Huckle Cat: I guess I'll have to keep looking. Goodbye! (waves goodbye and leaves, then Patty, Dennis and Lily wave goodbye)
  • Dennis and Patty Elephant: Bye!
  • Lily Bunny: Bye!

  • Mary Fox: Now, Fluffy, you can't go with me to school today. You stay here and be good while I'm gone. Okay?

(Fluffy bleats)

  • Miss Honey: Mary, I'm afraid you'll have to take that lamb home again.
  • Mary Fox: Yes, ma'am.

(Fluffy bleats sadly)

  • Miss Honey: Oh, well... you can bring her in just this once. Why don't you make her your show and tell for today?

  • Huckle Cat: I was wondering if you might have seen his friend, Lowly Worm.
  • Old Mother Hubbard: (thinking) Lowly Worm. Lowly Worm. Well, what does he look like?
  • Huckle Cat: Well, he still kind of looks like... like, Lowly Worm, I guess.
  • Old Mother Hubbard: Let's see. I didn't see him in the grocer's (Gerald Dog shakes his head no) or the cobbler's. (Gerald shakes his head no again) No, I guess I didn't see him. Sorry. I'd like to help you look for him, but I have to go down to the butcher's shop. (gets the magazine that reads "BIG SALE ON BONES") Because they're having a big sale on bones! (puts the magazine away) Goodbye! (then she and Gerald leaves the house to go down to the butcher's shop)

  • The spider: I don't know why Miss Muffet has a problem with me. I really am a very nice fellow.
  • Huckle Cat: I'm sure you are!
  • The spider: You look lost, my boy. How can I help you?
  • Huckle Cat: I'm looking for my friend, Lowly Worm. Have you seen him go past here?
  • The spider: No. But I did see all the king's horses and all the king's men run by. I guess Humpty Dumpty must have fallen off the wall again and they can't put him back together.
  • Huckle Cat: Okay, thanks anyway. Bye. (leaves)
  • The spider: Ta-ta!

  • Mary Mouse: (panting and then wiping the sweat from her forehead) Whew! I've got to get this clock fixed!
  • Huckle Cat: I wonder if there's anyone home.

  • Old Woman: (gives some soup to Betsy) Here's some soup, Bonnie.
  • Betsy: I'm not Bonnie. I'm Betsy.
  • Old Woman: Sorry, honey. (then Betsy goes inside Old Woman's shoe and Old Woman gives some soup to Huckle) Off to bed, dear!
  • Huckle Cat: Uh, I'm not one of your children.
  • Old Woman: Why. So you're not.
  • Huckle Cat: My name is Huckle. And I'm looking for my friend, Lowly Worm. Have you seen him?
  • Old Woman: (thinking) Hmm. Lowly. Lowly. Is he one of my children?
  • Huckle Cat: (giggling) No, I don't think so. He's a worm.
  • Old Woman: Then I definitely haven't seen him. Hmm. Maybe you should go to the town square, and ask Wee Willie Winkie. He knows where everybody is.
  • Huckle Cat: Thank you. (waves and leaves) Goodbye.

  • Huckle Cat: Excuse me... (Wee Willie Winkie runs up to Huckle Cat and skids to a stop) have you...?
  • Wee Willie Winkie: Sorry. I can't stop the talk. I have to make sure all the children are in bed.

(Huckle sits down on the front porch steps of one of the houses)

  • Wee Willie Winkie: Come to think of it, why aren't you in bed?
  • Huckle Cat: I was in bed. But now I'm looking for my friend Lowly. He's lost.
  • Wee Willie Winkie: That's too bad. I'd like to help you look for him but I haven't finished my job here. Sorry, I've got to go. (leaves) Goodbye.

(Huckle Cat puts his hands on his cheeks and looks down sadly hearing Wee Willie Winkie shouting)

  • Wee Willie Winkie: (offscreen) Lights out! It's 8 o'clock! Time for bed!

(Huckle Cat looks up and down, sighs sadly and hears laughing then he looks up)

  • Huckle Cat: Oh. Maybe the people in that big castle will know where Lowly is. (goes to the castle)

  • Huckle Cat: (goes away from Old King Cole at his party to the kitchen in the castle) Oops, this isn't the way out.
  • Bob Fox: Come in, come in, you're just in time! You can help me take the pie in to the king!

(he and Huckle put the blackbird pie onto the cart; a blackbird pops up)

  • Bob Fox: Get back in there you! You're supposed to be a surprise!

(he and Huckle giggle; a blackbird gets back in the pie then Huckle and Bob take the pie in to Old King Cole)

(at bedtime at Huckle's house when Lowly (all covered with flour) arrives at Huckle's bedroom with the surprise pie)
  • Father Cat: Lowly has been making you a surprise pie.
  • Huckle Cat: Wow! Thanks, Lowly!

(Lowly dusts off the flour and gives the surprise pie to Mother Cat)

  • Mother Cat: (puts the surprise pie on the window) We'll put it here tonight, and we'll all have a piece tomorrow.
  • Father Cat: (kisses Huckle goodnight) Goodnight, Huckle. Sweet dreams. (tucks Huckle in bed)
  • Huckle Cat: Goodnight, Daddy. (then closes his eyes)

(Lowly Worm closes his eyes too with his leg out of the bed. Mother Cat tucks him in bed and takes his hat off. Then she and Father Cat sing a lullaby.)

  • Mother Cat: ♪ Sleep, baby, sleep. Thy father guards the sheep. ♪
  • Mother and Father Cat: ♪ Thy mother shakes the dream land tree. And from it fall sweet dreams for thee. Sleep, baby, sleep. Sleep, baby, sleep. ♪

(During the last four lines of the lullaby, we pan to the left to the bedroom window with the surprise pie and fade to the outside of the bedroom window of Huckle's house as the blackbirds fly out of the pie. Then we fade to and pan above the entire Busytown at night seen on birds-eye view to the stars in the night sky. Then they form into the words "THE END".)

  • Narrator: The end.
