Text reads, TVOKids Presents

Felix, a puppet of a dog with floppy ears and brown and white fur wearing a yellow T-shirt with blue and white stripes and a blue hoodie, stands in front of a row of three-storey buildings on a street.

Felix says, IS THERE A DOCTOR
IN THE HOUSE?

Annie, a puppet of a pig with shaggy orange hair wearing a pink dress, looks out a window in one of the buildings.

Annie says, YES, AND HE'S A MOUSE.

Dr. Cheddar, a puppet of a white mouse wearing a blue lab coat with a stethoscope around his neck, waves out of a window on the top floor of one of the buildings.

An announcer says, YOU'LL FEEL
BETTER WITH DR. CHEDDAR!

Title: Dr. Cheddar

Dr. Cheddar writes in a diary on a desk in his office. A framed drawing of a cat coloured in red crayon stands on the desk in front of him.

Dr. Cheddar says, AH.
I REMEMBER WHEN ANNIE
ALMOST DIDN'T FINISH
HER LATEST MASTERPIECE.

(Dr. Cheddar chuckles)

Dr. Cheddar says, THERE SHE WAS ALONE
AT HER ART TABLE.

Flashback: Annie sits at a table drawing on a piece of paper.

Annie says, OF COURSE, I'M
GOING TO FINISH.

(Annie giggles)

Annie says, I JUST NEED MY, MY...

Annie searches back and forth over the table and lifts a piece of paper, looking under it.

Annie says, HUH?
MY FAVORITE CRAYON.
WHERE IS IT? WHERE IS IT?
WHERE IS IT? OH!

Dr. Cheddar says, OH, CALM DOWN,
ANNIE, CALM DOWN.
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Annie rests her chin in her hands on the table.

Annie says, AW.
MY BESTEST, REDDEST
CRAYON. IT'S GONE.
I LOOKED EVERYWHERE FOR
IT AND I CAN'T FIND IT.
OH, I CAN'T FINISH MY
RED KITTIES WITHOUT IT.
WHERE DID IT GO?

Dr. Cheddar says, HM, LET'S LOOK ON
YOUR DESK. SHALL WE?

Annie says, IT'S NOT HERE.

Dr. Cheddar says, YOU KNOW, ANNIE,
SOMETIMES I FIND THAT CLEANING
UP IS THE BEST WAY TO FIND
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR.

Annie says, HUH?

Dr. Cheddar says, BY PUTTING THINGS YOU
NEED BACK IN A PLACE
WHERE YOU CAN EASILY
FIND THEM LATER,
YOU SAVE TIME AND IT
MAKES IT EASIER TO WORK.

Annie says, HOW DO I DO THAT?

Dr. Cheddar says, WELL, LET'S START BY
PUTTING TOGETHER THINGS
THAT ARE SIMILAR.
WHY DON'T YOU TRY PUTTING
ALL YOUR PAPERS IN ONE PILE?

Annie stands with one hand on her hip.

Annie says, PUT THE PAPERS IN ONE PILE?
OKAY.

Annie picks up several drawings. She straightens them and puts them aside on the table.

(Playful music)

Annie says, ALL RIGHT. BUT I STILL
DON'T SEE MY CRAYON.

Dr. Cheddar says, NOW LET'S PUT ALL
YOUR OTHER CRAYONS
INTO YOUR BEAUTIFUL CRAYON CAN.

Annie puts five crayons into a can decorated with black and yellow stripes and googly eyes.

Annie says, THERE WE GO.

Dr. Cheddar says, GOOD JOB, ANNIE, WHAT
ELSE CAN WE PUT TOGETHER
THAT'S SIMILAR ON YOUR DESK?

Annie says, WELL, I SEE MY MUSIC
BOOK, MY COLORING BOOK,
AND MY NOTEBOOK FOR TAKING
NOTES AND DRAWING PICTURES.

Dr. Cheddar says, WHY DON'T WE PUT ALL
THOSE BOOKS IN ONE PILE?

Annie says, RIGHT.

Annie picks up the books from the table, revealing a red crayon.

(Annie gasps)

Annie puts the books down and picks up and stares at the red crayon.

Annie says, MY, MY, MY RED CRAYON!
HOW I'VE MISSED YOU.

(Annie sighs)

Dr. Cheddar says, LET'S HAVE A LOOK
AT YOUR DESK NOW.

Annie says, I CAN FIND EVERYTHING.
THANK YOU, DR. CHEDDAR.

(Annie laughs)

Annie says, NOW WHERE WAS I?

Flash forward: Dr. Cheddar sits at his desk writing in the diary.

Dr. Cheddar says, I'M SO GLAD THAT ANNIE WAS
ABLE TO FINISH HER PICTURE.

(Dr. Cheddar laughs)

Dr. Cheddar closes the diary.

Dr. Cheddar says, UNTIL NEXT TIME,
THIS IS DR. CHEDDAR
HOPING YOU FEEL BETTER
ABOUT ORGANIZING YOUR DESK.

(Gentle music)

(Fireworks explode)

Dr. Cheddar, Annie, and Felix point at the night sky and say,
WHOA. WOW. LOVELY.
