Transcript: Potato Puzzle
A caption reads "TVO Kids and ABC present."
An animated shows the homes of 4 neighbour families with young kids and their pets: Chris and his cat Crat; Davey and his dog, Abigail; Oleander and her salamander Sally; and Poppy and Chaz.
They all climb up a hill and the letters of a sign that spell the name of the show. It reads "Big words, small stories."
The name of the episode reads "Potato puzzle."
In the living room, Chris and his cat Crat try to make a bubble machine work.
Chris reads the instructions and says THOUSANDS OF BUBBLES? PFFT!
Crat bangs the machine and says HMM? HMM...
Bubbles come right at their faces.
(BOTH COUGHING AND SPUTTERING)
Mom says OH, CRIS!
ONE SUPER-MEGA STARGAZER
PUZZLE FOR YOU!
Chris says ALRIGHT!
Crat says YES!
Chris walks in the kitchen, grabs the box and says OOF! IT'S HEAVY FOR A PUZZLE.
Crat says WELL, IT IS SUPER-MEGA.
Chris opens the box and says POTATOES?!
Crat says WHERE ARE THE PUZZLE PIECES?
Chris says HMM... THAT'S A VERY GOOD
Chris says LET'S ASK AUNT DELILAH!
Crat says GOOD PLAN!
I FEEL LIKE MASHED POTATOES.
(KNOCK AT DOOR)
Aunt Delilah says HAST THOU FINISHED THE PUZZLE?
Chris and Crat say NUH-UH.
Aunt Delilah says WHY ARE YOU CARRYING POTATOES
IN MY PUZZLE BOX?
Crat says WE DIDN'T PUT THEM IN THERE.
WE FOUND THEM INSIDE,
INSTEAD OF THE PUZZLE!
Chris says DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA
WHERE THEY ARE?
Aunt Delilah says I HAVEN'T A CLUE, DARLING.
Crat says HMM...
YOU KNOW WHAT WE HAVE HERE?
Chris says YES. A...
The Sprinklers shout "Conundrum."
Sprinkle Fairy pops up and says CONUNDRUM MEANS
A CONFUSING PROBLEM TO SOLVE.
LIKE, WHY ARE THERE POTATOES
INSTEAD OF PUZZLE PIECES
IN THE BOX?
Chris says ANY IDEAS?
Sprinkle Fairy says SORRY, BUT I
HAVE MY OWN CONUNDRUM TO SOLVE.
WHAT TO EAT FOR LUNCH -
SOUP OR SANDWICH?
WHAT WILL I CHOOSE? TOODLES!
Aunt Delilah says CHAZ WAS THE LAST ONE
TO BORROW THE PUZZLE.
MAYBE HE KNOWS
WHERE THE PIECES ARE.
Chris says LET'S GO ASK HIM!
They walk in the garden as Chaz is digging a hole.
Chaz throws dirt on Chris's face.
Chris says CHAZ?
Chaz says POTATOES SHOULD BE IN A BASKET,
NOT A PUZZLE BOX.
Chris says SOMEONE SWAPPED THOSE FOR OUR
SUPER MEGA STARGAZER PIECES.
Chaz says WELL, IT WASN'T ME!
HMM... BUT I DID LEND THE PUZZLE
TO AL, AT THE CAFÉ.
Crat says MAYBE AL CAN HELP US!
Aunt Delilah roller skates to the café as she practices her line and says A TREE OR NOT A TREE?
THAT IS THE QUESTION...
Al says HOPPING HAMBURGERS! POTATOES
DON'T BELONG IN PUZZLE BOXES!
Chris says WE KNOW!
IT'S A CONUNDRUM!
DO YOU KNOW
WHERE THE PIECES ARE?
CHAZ SAYS YOU TRIED
TO DO THE PUZZLE.
Al says TRIED? I COMPLETED IT!
Crat says HMM.
Al says YOU KNOW, THE SALESPERSON
LOVES PUZZLES AND WANTED TO TRY,
SO I LENT IT TO HIM.
AND THERE HE GOES!
Chris says THANKS! COME ON!
Crat says CAN'T WE GET A SNACK FIRST?
ALL THIS TALK OF POTATOES
IS MAKING ME HUNGRY.
Chris says THIS WAY, AUNT DELILAH.
Aunt Delilah says WHOAAA! COMING!
Meanwhile, the Sprinklers do silly things.
The salesperson says THAT IS QUITE THE CONUNDRUM.
Chris says YES, WE KNOW.
Aunt Delilah rolls in and says INCOMING! WHOOAAA!
She bumps into salesperson and makes him spin and drop the shoe boxes.
She says SORRY!
BUT THE THEATRE NEVER STOPS.
The salesperson clears his throat and says I SOMETIMES GET
THE SHOES MIXED UP IN THE BOXES.
MAYBE I MUDDLED UP
THE PUZZLE PIECES IN THEM TOO!
YOU'RE WELCOME TO LOOK.
Chris says THANKS! WE'LL BE QUICK.
As they walk in the store and see the huge pile of boxes, they all gasp.
On their way home, Chris says YOU KNOW WHAT?
I THINK THIS IS ONE CONUNDRUM
THAT CAN'T BE SOLVED.
Grandpa Rex waves at them from his balcony and says OH! OH!
I'M SO GLAD TO SEE YOU.
I NEED YOUR HELP
SOLVING A CONUNDRUM.
I'VE LOST MY LUNCH!
I FOUND PUZZLE PIECES INSTEAD!
Crat says WE'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THOSE
Grandpa Rex says HOW DID MY POTATOES
END UP IN THERE?
Aunt Delilah says OHH! I WAS DOING THE PUZZLE
AND LEARNING MY LINES
WHEN GRANDPA REX
CAME HOME WITH THE GROCERIES.
I MUST'VE PUT THEM IN THE WRONG
PLACE WHEN I WAS HELPING HIM!
Crat says NOW CAN WE EAT?!
Grandpa Rex says GRANDPA'S FAMOUS MASHED POTATOES
COMING RIGHT UP!
NOW IF I CAN ONLY SOLVE
OF WHERE ALL THESE BUBBLES
ARE COMING FROM.
Chris gasps and says THE BUBBLE MACHINE!
Music plays as the end credits roll.
