Script: Piglet

SIDE 1

(Four more NARRATORS enter  GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO and VIOLET.)

BLUE
Pooh looked really sad for a moment.

INDIGO
Then he decided that if he knocked, maybe Christopher Robin would hear him.

(POOH knocks.)

GREEN
The knocking made a note fall to the ground right at Pooh s feet.

(POOH looks down.)

VIOLET
To your left.

(POOH looks to his right.)

No, Pooh, your other left.

(POOH turns to see the note and picks it up.)

INDIGO
Pooh was very puzzled by the note.

POOH
Well, it is a very puzzling note.

(PIGLET enters.)

PIGLET
Hello, Pooh.

POOH
Hello there, Piglet. Say, Piglet, you haven t got any honey on you, have you?

PIGLET
(examining his shirt)
Why, do you see some?

POOH
No. I was just hoping.

PIGLET
What s that you ve got in your hand, Pooh?

POOH
It s a very puzzling note.

PIGLET
Maybe you should take it to Rabbit. He s very good at puzzles.

POOH
That s just what I was thinking.

GREEN
That isn t what Pooh was thinking at all.

POOH
Hey!

BLUE
Well, it wasn t, Pooh.

(#7 POOH AND PIGLET.)


INDIGO
But since it was a very good idea, Pooh and Piglet went to Rabbit s house to see what he thought of the puzzling note.

SIDE 2

ORANGE
Just then, the animals heard footsteps coming through the Wood.

RABBIT
Backson!

(EVERYONE scrambles to hide.)

RED
But it wasn t the Backson, after all.

YELLOW
It was their friend, Christopher Robin.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
(entering)
Hello? Anybody there? Where is everyone?

(The ANIMALS come out from hiding and sit or kneel so CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is the tallest.)

There you are!

POOH
Christopher Robin!

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
Hello there, Pooh.

(CHRISTOPHER ROBIN greets the ANIMALS in turn.)

RABBIT
However did you escape from the Backson?

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
What s a Backson?

KANGA
He wakes up children.

PIGLET
He puts out the lights.

TIGGER
He rips your pants! If you wear pants. Tiggers don t.

OWL
It is without a doubt, the most wretched creature one could ever encounter.

POOH
We thought he d kidnapped you.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
Why would you think that?

OWL
Because of this!

(OWL hands the note to CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.)

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
Oh. All I meant to say is that I was busy, and that I would be back soon.

RABBIT
Oh.

ROO
(disappointed)
So there really isn t a monster?

POOH
And we were scared for nothing?

EEYORE
It figures.

RABBIT
Don t blame me! It was Owl who told us about the Backsons!

(All look at OWL.)

OWL
Aherm. Perhaps I could have reviewed the document a bit more carefully. As my niece Letitia would say   Sor-ry.

POOH
I guess even Owls can make mistakes. But at least we ve got Christopher Robin back again.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
But not for long, I m afraid.

RABBIT
Afraid?

EEYORE
I knew it was too good to be true.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
It s going to be autumn soon, and I ll be going to school. So that means I won t have as much time to play with you as I used to.

ROO
Forever?

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
Not forever, Roo. I ll still have nights and weekends. And when next summer comes around, we ll spend every day together.

POOH
But next summer s a long way away. Lots of breakfasts, and lunchtimes, and afternoon snacks away.

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
But school hasn t started yet, Pooh. And that s why I came out here today. So we could have one last summer picnic.

EVERYBODY
Yay! A picnic!

(The NARRATORS enter and form a rainbow.)

SIDE 3

(POOH, PIGLET and RABBIT watch the BEES dance off.)

RABBIT
I m afraid I m fresh out of honey, Pooh.

POOH
I was afraid you d say that.

RABBIT
Let s see this puzzle of yours.

(reading the note)
Oh, my goodness. Oh, my good goodness.

POOH
So it s a good kind of puzzle? Not the kind where you ve lost a piece and can t find it for the longest time?

RABBIT
What are you talking about, Pooh! This is horrible! This note is simply terrifying!

PIGLET
What does it say?

RABBIT
I don t know.

POOH
Then why is it terrifying?

RABBIT
Because... because... I ll let Owl explain to you why it s terrifying!

RED
So Pooh, Piglet, and Rabbit set out for Owl s house with the puzzling and terrifying note.

OWL
(reading the note)
Hrrmph.

POOH
Excuse me, Owl, but is that a good noise or a bad noise?

OWL
It s an  I m thinking kind of noise, Pooh.

POOH
Oh. Say, Owl, while you re thinking, do you happen to have any honey?

OWL
Honey? Never touch the stuff. It clogs the arteries and slows the mental processes.

POOH
But it tastes so good, Owl.

RABBIT
Hush up and let Owl think, Pooh.

OWL
(reading the note)
 Gone out Backson. Bisy Backson. Signed, Christopher Robin.

(to others)
Do you know what this means?
