Narrator: This is a nursery for any children to go to. If you really see these toys that look like barnyard animal super heroes, these are the characters in a story I am about to tell you.

(close-up of the Brilliant Bull toy in front of the window sill next to the "Barnyard Hero Brigade" book and zooming in slowly)

Narrator: Now these super heroes are in a group called "The Barnyard Hero Brigade" or the "B.H.B." for short. Now these animals live here in Rubyswell.

(zooming into the animated footage inside the storybook)

Narrator: This story begins in Rubyswell, which is on this island that is much populated by anthropomorphic animals. It even has animals that are not anthropomorphic. No humans are living their at all and there was never a rule about any humans living there at all.

Narrator: Well, every citizen of Rubyswell loved living there a lot.

(slowly zooming out to the inside of the book and page 4 turns to the next page)

(Hollywoodedge, Book Page Turns PE1014905)

Narrator: Here on page 4, there was a truck with a trailer behind.

(Slowly zooming into the background) It was a beautiful spring day.

(inside of the trailer showing hanging puppets)

Narrator: Inside the trailer, there were some puppets made. They were all marionettes. But there was a new one that has been made, but not finished yet. (showing a black baby bull calf marionette) It was a black baby bull calf marionette that was made of wood, had a coat of fur and black hair glued on the top of its head.

Woman: (off screen) Well, now...(coming inside the trailer and reveals that she is a giraffe)

...It’s time for me to continue.

I’ll just paint some parts on that puppet and then it’s all finished.

Narrator: That giraffe was the one who started to make that marionette and her name was Ingrid Yellowface.

Ingrid Yellowface: (nods her head in agreement)

That’s right, Narrator. I’ve been such a great puppet maker since I was a kid. I have been very fund of puppetry since I saw my first puppet show in school. It happened while I was in kindergarten.

Narrator: That was your very first puppet show ever?

Ingrid Yellowface: Uh-huh. It was also such a blast.


And it was the best too. Now I better start finishing up that marionette. It’s going to have its debut in my puppet show tomorrow.

Narrator: Well, good luck with that, Ingrid Yellowface.

Ingrid Yellowface: Thank you, Narrator.

Narrator: You’re very welcome.

Scene 2: Getting the Bull Calf Marionette Prepared

Ingrid Yellowface: (picks up paintbrush, dips it in black paint and paints pupils on the puppet’s eyes)

Now you can see very well.


(Rinses paintbrush in a jar full of water, dips brush in gray paint and slowly paints a smile on the puppet’s face)



Now you look a little more different and now I can see how happy you feel with that smile.

(turns around to see the other puppets)

Okay, everybody! Does anyone of you have any name suggestions for this new puppet?

Okay, okay. Don’t everybody speak at one time!


(picks up marionette to take a closer look)

Oh, you look so brilliant. Hey. That gave me an idea. I have chosen a perfect name for you to have. Brilliant Bull. Would you like to have that for your name?

(yanks a string to make the puppet’s head nod)

Good. Then Brilliant Bull is now your name. Tomorrow, you will have your debut in my puppet show and everybody will like you.

(fades to the night when citizens come to the theater, which is where the puppet show is)

(crowd talking)

(crowd murmuring)

Ingrid Yellowface: (comes up on stage)

(crowd applauding)

Ingrid Yellowface: (holds up cordless microphone)

(taps microphone 3 times in a row and feedback) (Hollywoodedge, Handling Microphone PE505401) (first three taps) and (Hollywoodedge, Microphone-Feedback PREMED11-1540)

Ladies and gentlemen, kids of all ages, I, Ingrid Yellowface am about to show you a very good puppet show that you would be sure to like. This time, I have a brand new puppet in his debut tonight. He is a black baby bull calf who is looking so brilliant. Ladies and gentlemen, kids of all ages, I present you...Brilliant Bull!

Scene 3: Brilliance and Wonder

(drum roll)


(curtains opening)

(showgirl animal puppets pointing at Brilliant Bull)

(showgirl animal puppets zoom away)

Ingrid Yellowface: (imitating Brilliant Bull singing)
My name is Brilliant Bull
And I'm very smart
I have such love
Which is in my heart
I may be cute
But not like thunder
I'm full of brilliance and wonder

Colorful lights and twinkling stars
Those sights can make us smile
Carnivals and candy bars
Would satisfy us for a while

I'm such a nice calf
And that is great
I'm smart enough
To concentrate
I'm not a bad guy
'Cause I won't plunder
I'm full of brilliance and wonder

(ballroom background falls on stage)

(ballerina calf puppet approaches and dances)

Ingrid Yellowface: (imitating ballerina calf singing)
I am a ballerina
And I love to dance
I wearing a tutu
Instead of pants
I love to kiss
But not to blunder
While you're full of brilliance and wonder

I love to tiptoe and spin round and round
I'm good at exercize
I'm a cow, not a hound
I have such pretty eyes

You're such a brilliant calf
And that's the best
I'm sure you love
The way I'm dressed
There is no table
For me to go under
You're full of brilliance and wonder

(other ballerina calf puppets dancing along)

(ballerina calf puppets exiting)

(beach background falls on stage)

(hula calf puppet approaches)

Ingrid Yellowface: (imitating hula calf singing)
I am a hula calf
And I love to sway
I always have this jiggle
To brighten my day
I love this skirt
and I could be funder
of you full of brilliance and wonder

I wear a bikini and crack coconuts
I feel the ocean breeze
I'm very calm but not going nuts
It's very easy to please

Ingrid Yellowface: (imitating Brilliant Bull singing)
Oh, I'm such a brilliant calf
And that is cool
I'm sure we know
That I'm a bull
There is a reason
I shouldn't sunder
'Cause I'm full of,
I'm full of brilliance and wonder
Brilliance and wonder

(applause from crowd)

Ingrid Yellowface: Wow! They like Brilliant Bull!

(imitates Brilliant Bull) Thank you. Thank you very much.

Narrator: Everyone liked Brilliant Bull. They thought he was the cutest puppet in the show. He was also the greatest.

Scene 4: Brilliant Bull Finds a New Home

(page of the book turns)

Narrator: After the puppet show was over, Ingrid put Brilliant Bull back in the trailer. That night, Ingrid decided to make a wish upon a star.

Ingrid Yellowface: Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might have the wish I wish for tonight. I wish that Brilliant Bull would be a real calf and have superpowers. Just imagine. If he would be a real bull calf, that would be neat. Well, I better get home. It’s getting awfully late.

(walks out of trailer)

(walks to her truck, opens door, gets in and closes door)

(engine starting)

(pulling away)

Narrator: So, Ingrid Yellowface drove her truck on her way home. Suddenly, a dreadful storm began. But little did she know that she had forgotten to close one of the windows of her truck’s trailer where Brilliant Bull was hanging near it.
