  • (Fade in to Dexter's POV; he is reading an encyclopedia about planets and space)
  • Mom: Dexter? Dexter, honey?
  • (Dexter lowers his book; Mom peeps inside his room's doorway)
  • Dexter: Yes?
  • Mom: Oh, I'm sorry. You're reading.
  • Dexter: Yes?
  • (Dexter is then shown reading his encyclopedia while holding a glass, has a smoke pipe in his mouth, and wearing a fez)
  • Mom: Oh, you just look so cute in your little story corner. Now Dexter, I came to ask you a little favor?
  • Dexter: (while taking the smoke pipe out of his mouth) Yes?
  • Mom: Your sister's feeling a little puny. Seems she's caught a little bug. So, I was thinking it might make Dee Dee feel a lot better if you went and read your book with her.
  • (A bubble inside Dexter's smoke pipe enlarges then pops; he then hides behind his beanbag chair)
  • Dexter: What?! If she has got the creeping crud, count me out! I'm not going nowhere near that infectious, plague-ridden sack of cooties!
  • Mom: Dexter!
  • Dexter: But I don't want to get it on me.
  • Mom: (through clenched teeth) Be nice and read a story to your sick sister!
  • Dexter: (artificially) Dearest Dee Dee is ill, you say? (He gets off his beanbag and walks to the right while Mom glares at him) I must away to bedside to comfort her inner time of need!
  • (He bolts off to the right; in Dee Dee's room, she is in her bed with a blue ice pack on her head; the door is heard opening just as a shadow casts on Dee Dee)
  • Dee Dee: Dexter, is that you?
  • (Dexter is standing at the doorway wearing a white hazmat-like suit)
  • Dexter: I've come to read to you during your incapacitation.
  • (He walks near Dee Dee's bed)
  • Dee Dee: Really? Dexter, that's so sweet.
  • (A drop of mucus slides out of Dee Dee's nose; she sniffs it back up; Dexter opens his book)
  • Dexter: Now let's get this over with.
  • (Dee Dee reaches to the top of Dexter's suit and peels it open like a candy wrapper; she then picks Dexter up and shakes him out)
  • Dee Dee: You silly! You need to come up with me!
  • (Dexter gasps; Dee Dee then pulls Dexter towards her and gives him a hug)
  • Dee Dee: Now, I want you to be all comfy-cozy because you're the bestest brother I ever had! Ooh, I love you so very, very much!
  • (As Dee Dee hugs Dexter, his head turns red, then blue from a lack of air; Dexter regains his breath as Dee Dee lets go of him)
  • Dee Dee: Comfy?
  • Dexter: "Comfy"?! I have been contaminated! I've gotta get the heck...
  • (He is stopped as a silhouette of Mom is in Dee Dee's doorway; he picks his book up)
  • Dexter: ...Back to reading this whimsicall fable to my precious sister.
  • (He kisses Dee Dee; she gets on top of his head)
  • Dexter: Let's see now. Ah, yes. "Once upon a time, a remarkable amount of information was deciphered from photos taken with a spectrograph."
  • (The camera zooms in on Dexter, then fades to the inside of his encyclopedia)
  • Dexter: "The dark fraunhofer lines in stellar and solar spectra are caused by low-pressure gases in the upper layers of the sun and stars, absorbing discrete wavelengths."
  • (A drop of drool falls on Dexter's encyclopedia; it then pulls back to show Dee Dee sleeping on top of his head)
  • Dexter: Hey, hey, hey! Sleep time is over. (Dee Dee drowsily wakes up) Story time is now!
  • Dee Dee: I'm sorry. You just read all boring-style. (takes Dexter's book) Here, why don't you let me show you how to read a story?
  • (She clears her throat; it then zooms into Dee Dee's mouth and fades to black)
  • Dee Dee: "Once upon a time, there was a pretty little girl that everyone loved named Dee Dee locks!"
  • (Fade in from black; a girl, named Dee Dee Locks, is shown dressed in a Dutch-styled outfit; she then walks through the landscape with her elongating legs; she comes to the front of a castle facade with water on the inside and steps in)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Dee Dee locks was on her way to grandma's house, so she decided to take a shortcut through the dike.
  • (Dee Dee Locks, who is now underwater, skips through the lake similarly to how she did in the grasslands, albeit slower; she comes to a rusty ship with an anchor)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "As she skipped along the lake bed, she came across a little cottage."
  • (Dee Dee Locks walks toward the ship and opens the door)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "'This seemed like a nice place to take a nap,' so she went in," (inside, Dee Dee Locks lays on a metal bed with lit coals underneath) "tried the bed, but it was too hot."
  • (She jumps up from the hot coals and flies off to the top right; cut to an icy chair; a lamp with icicles is seen next to it along with a cold drink and a straw; Dee Dee Locks flies in from the top and sits in the icy chair, with the seat melting underneath her; she shivers)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "She tried the chair, but it was too cold."
  • (Cut to Dee Dee Locks laying in a bowl of porridge; she is content, but she then sinks in)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Then she tried the porridge. It was just right!"
  • (At the front door; a three-headed bagpipe creature with human legs kicks the door open and enters)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Just then, the residents of the cottage came home."
  • (The bagpipe head with braids is looking at his bed)
  • Sleepiness: Hey, somebody's been sleeping in my bed.
  • (The grumpy-looking bagpipe head is looking at his chair)
  • Grumpiness: Someone's been sleeping in my chair!
  • (The bagpipe head with eyelashes looks at her bowl of porridge; she lifts up a spoon to reveal Dee Dee Locks, who is still sleeping)
  • Silliness: Someone's been sleeping in my porridge, and she's still here.
  • (She eats both the porridge and Dee Dee Locks)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "So, the monster ate her, and she was very sweet!"
  • Silliness: Mmm. Mmm.
  • (Inside the creature's stomach, Dee Dee Locks slides in from the left and falls into the stomach acid; she submerges and sees three pig-like creatures made out of straw, sticks, and bricks)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Inside the monster's tummy, Dee Dee locks met 3 pigs: A straw pig, a stick pig, and a brick pig."
  • (They are happy to see Dee Dee Locks; a linked thought bubble appears over their heads, depicting a red question mark with wings on it)
  • Dee Dee: "These pigs were very glad to see Dee Dee locks, and wondered if she could help them escape."
  • (Dee Dee Locks thinks; she then points up while smiles; cut to the pigs braiding Dee Dee Locks' hair)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "She let the pigs braid a rope out of her long golden locks, which they used to climb down out of the monster."
  • (Cut to the outside; Dee Dee Locks pops out of the creature's rear with the three pigs using her hair as a fire escape; one of the bagpipe heads looks on)
  • Grumpiness: Hey, haggis, you got something dripping out your chanter.
  • Silliness: Oh, my!
  • (She blows into a pipe, pushing Dee Dee Locks' hair out, which then coils around her)
  • Sleepiness: Aah! What was that?
  • Silliness: Ooh, excuse me.
  • (Dee Dee Locks and the three pigs look at the bagpipe creature, with their arms at their sides)
  • Dee Dee Locks: (Dutch accent) Yes, excuse you very much for eating us.
  • (The bagpipe creature looks at Dee Dee Locks and the pigs; the leftmost head is apologetic)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "The monster apologized and introduced themselves."
  • Silliness: We're the Ness Monster. I'm Silliness.
  • (Pan to Grumpiness; he looks straight on angrily)
  • Silliness: This is Grumpiness.
  • Grumpiness: Harrumph.
  • (Pan to Sleepiness; he is sleeping as a stream of Zs come out of his mouth)
  • Silliness: And that's Sleepiness.
  • (Several knocks on the door are heard)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Suddenly, there was a knock at the door."
  • (The straw pig races over to the door)
  • Straw pig: I'll get it.
  • (He opens the door; someone inhales then blows the straw pig away; the door closes just as the stick pig walks towards it)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Then a second knock on the door."
  • (The stick pig opens the door; someone inhales and blows the stick pig away; the door again closes just as the brick pig walks toward it)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "And a third knock on the door."
  • (The brick pig opens the door; someone inhales and blows on the brick pig, but nothing happens; another inhale is heard and they again blow on the brick pig; the brick pig doesn't budge; the front door then opens; a diminutive wolf dressed like Napoleon Bonaparte enters while riding a cannon, which is pointed directly in the brick pig's face and holding a lit match)
  • Wolf: (French accent) Ok, I can't keep up this huffing and the puffing, huh? I blow his block off unless you can guess my name.
  • Dee Dee Locks: Uh, uh, the little bad wolf?
  • Wolf: The what bad wolf?
  • (He glares at Dee Dee Locks as the camera zooms in)
  • Dee Dee Locks: The "small" bad?
  • (The wolf growls; he glares harder)
  • Dee Dee Locks: The medium?
  • (The wolf again growls; he stares at her)
  • Dee Dee Locks: The big... (the wolf smiles) bad wolf?
  • (The Big Bad Wolf laughs)
  • Dee Dee Locks: Ja? Everyone it's the (while winking) big bad wolf!
  • (Cut back to reality)
  • Dexter: Stop! This is ridiculous. I don't even know what's going on. There's no kind of structure, no plot.
  • Dee Dee: Ah, I'm getting to it. So, anyhow...
  • (Fade to Dee Dee Locks and her new friends riding a wooden tub in the middle of a sea)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Everyone was a-rub-a-dub-dubbing in a tub when...
  • (A goldfish with a monocle and top hat jumps out of the sea and lands in the tub while holding three green magic beans)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "A magic goldfish jumped out of the sea with some magic beans he wanted to trade."
  • Dee Dee Locks: Ja? The only thing we could trade is that bad wolf.
  • (She hands the wolf over to the goldfish; he looks at her angrily)
  • Goldfish: I say, he's a big bad wolf, isn't he? (The wolf looks at the goldfish and smiles) It's a deal. Here are the beans.
  • (He throws the beans in Dee Dee Locks' hands; the wolf sticks his tongue out while the goldfish tips his hat then jumps back in the water)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "The goldfish thanked them and went on his way."
  • (Cut to Grumpiness looking at the beans)
  • Grumpiness: Finally, some beans.
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "The ness monster swallowed the beans..."
  • (He eats the beans; Silliness licks her lips; pan down to the stomach; the Ness Monster's belly starts gurgling and making growling sounds; Grumpiness then spits out a magic lamp, which lands in Dee Dee Locks' hands; she rubs the magic lamp with her apron)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "And spit up a magic lamp. And when Dee Dee locks rubbed it, a beanstalk started to grow."
  • (A beanstalk grows from the magic lamp's snout; it grows into the sky until it reaches a boot-shaped house somewhere in the clouds)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "It grew and grew, high into the sky."
  • (Dee Dee Locks, the Ness Monster, and the brick pig stick their heads up from the clouds)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "They climbed the stalk up to the tops of the clouds, where they found a giant boot."
  • (Dee Dee Locks runs toward the boot, opens the door, and runs inside with the Ness Monster and brick pig following; inside, the three friends are in what appears to be a large kitchen, with a meat cleaver over their heads)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "They went in to see if there was anything to eat, but what they didn't know was that this was the home of the 3 blind mice, 3 giant bone-crunching, marrow-sucking blind mice."
  • (Three rabid-looking mice are shown; they are shaking, teeth showing)
  • White mouse: Fee, fi, fo, fum. I smell the blood of something I'm going to eat.
  • (Sleepiness wakes up screaming; the Ness Monster, brick pig, and Dee Dee Locks all run away while the three blind mice intercept them; as they run to the right a second time, the three blind mice are suddenly stopped by a grandfather clock)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Dee Dee locks decided now was a good time to use her magic powers, so she told a lie."
  • (Dee Dee Locks takes her hat off)
  • Dee Dee Locks: Ja, I ate an elephant sandwich.
  • (Simiarly to Pinocchio, Dee Dee Locks' ears grow in size)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "And her ears began to grow."
  • Dee Dee Locks: Ja, I visit my brother's lab purely for its educational value.
  • (Her ears grow even bigger)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "And they kept on growing."
  • (She signals; the Ness Monster and brick pig jump on Dee Dee Locks' back; she takes off using her ears as wings)
  • Dee Dee: (narrating) "Then everyone jumped on her back and took off. And so, the brick pig, Dee Dee locks, and the Ness Monster flew away happily ever after over the rainbow.
  • (Back in reality, Dee Dee closes the book; Dexter is seen looking sick)
  • Dee Dee: The end. Thank you so much for reading me that wonderful story. I feel so much better!
  • (She runs off to the left and steps back in playing some bagpipes; Dexter bundles himself in the blanket and places the ice pack on his head and a thermometer in his mouth; it then zooms out to show Dee Dee's bed floating in the middle of a sea, then fade to black)
