CAMERON THE COURAGEOUS CABINET - BOODLEBOBS [EP-05]
This is a short bedtime story all about Cameron and yes, he’s a cabinet. Cameron had seen better days; better days than the days he now spent in the box room.
It was like a box and full of boxes. “See this scratch,” he said and Malcolm the moth looked up from his lunch - a large blue cardigan. “I got it in Burma…. Or was it Bermuda?” “Bermuda?” said Malcolm brightly, “You mean like the shorts?” Malcolm was only interested in clothing.
Cameron liked to boast he’d been everywhere and had fought lions, tigers, and elephants. Malcolm knew all the tall stories and believed none of them. “I’ve been around you know…” he continued. “..I’ve seen the world.”
“I haven’t.” piped up a tiny voice,” I’ve never been anywhere except this room.” “Nor have we!” chorused his friends, “We’re just House Mites and that’s where we stay…around the house!”
And it occurred to Malcolm that he’d never been anywhere either. The only thing he’d been around was a light bulb. “We need a holiday!” he exclaimed, “And Cameron……you could take us…..……to the SEASIDE!” “To the seaside!” sang all the House Mites, “Hello sea… with you and me we make eighty-three!” “Now hang on a moment,” protested Cameron, ”Fighting in the jungle is one thing but the seaside…no, I don’t think so.”
“Why not?” said Malcolm. “Ummm… because I don’t know the way!” he answered quickly.
Malcolm felt so disappointed, as too did the House Mites. “It’s not that simple!” protested Cameron. “Oh go back to fighting in the jungle,” muttered Malcolm. You see, Cameron’s stories were one thing but they weren’t actually altogether……true.
But he couldn’t tell them that! Then he thought about it, “Well…” he smiled. “I suppose we could ASK someone the way to the seaside!” “YEAH!!!!!!!!” cheered all the House Mites.
The next morning, everyone awoke very early. “All aboard!” said Cameron counting the House Mites into his drawer while Malcolm fluttered down onto his shoulder as they trundled out of the door.
But which way to the seaside? Before they could decide, or even take a guess, Mole (who knows everything) surfaced from deep underground.
“It’s that way,” he said twitching his nose. “Everyone knows you just follow your nose”. So they did and in no time at all, they arrived at the seaside.
“We’re at the seaside!!” squealed the House Mites in delight as they buried into the sand making sandcastles. Malcolm gazed out to sea, “Oh! Look at the boats!” he pointed and this gave Cameron another idea.
“This morning I was a cabinet and now I’ll be a boat!” he laughed. “All aboard!” he called for the second time that day as he flung himself into the waves. SPLASH!
“Now all we need is a sail.” So he rummaged around and pulled out an old, not-yet-moth-eaten jumper. They found some coat hangers and soon they’d made a rather good sail. Malcolm wasn’t happy – he rather fancied having the jumper for lunch – but he soon changed his mind as the wind took them.
They went so fast!! So there they were. One old cabinet that was now a boat. One old cardigan that was now a sail.
Eighty-one House Mites having the time of their life and a moth happy to have the wind in his wings. “Can you see what I can see?” said a seagull watching from the beach. “No,” replied the seagull’s friend. “What I THINK I can see is too silly for words…”
“So I think it’s best to say nothing.”

This Childrens cartoon story is all about Raj. And yes, he’s a radiator. It didn’t matter how hot it was, it could never be too hot for Raj - so it was just as well he was a radiator. “Bring me damp towels!” he called from across the hall, “Bring me wet washing and socks!” Anything that was cold.. or damp… or just plain soaking wet.. loved Raj. And there was always room for one more on top. Timmy – his friend - had been hanging out on the line and had got frozen. “I think..…… I think…I’m getting AH…AH… ATISHOO… …..A cold.” He sneezed.
Cartoon stories, this is a story all about Dorothy and yes, she’s a doughnut. Dorothy loved dancing. She knew the names of all the dances – the waltz, the tango, the foxtrot. She even knew the monster mash and the jive. But she was a TERRIBLE dancer. It was because of her shape – and her shoes – and she couldn’t change her shape (and she certainly wasn’t going to change her shoes). “OOOOH OOOH… I love to dance!” she sang as she tripped and crashed around.
This kids cartoon story is a story all about Eva and yes, she’s an egg timer. Because timing eggs only takes minutes, Eva had a lot of time on her hands. It gave her time to think so she thought a lot about chocolate. Bars of chocolate, boxes of chocolates, chocolate biscuits, chocolate cake – anything so long as it was chocolate. But there had to be more to life than chocolate?
This bedtime cartoon is a story all about Boris and yes, he’s a book. “You can ask Boris about anything,” said Malcolm “He can tell you why custard is yellow, why frogs are green and why milk shakes. Boris knew the name of everything, the size of everything, where it was from – where it was going to and how to say it in Latin. He also knew the best jokes

This bedtime story cartoon, is story all about Queenie and yes, she’s a quilt. Queenie was a quilt who spent most of her time resting. On the whole, she was happy except for her one big problem. A quilt should be fat and warm and snugly but Queenie wasn’t. She was cold and thin and quivery. “Nothing I do seems to make me any fatter,” she complained to her friend Alice. “Why don’t you try eating something?” suggested Alice. “Eating? Eating what?”
This kids story cartoon, is a story all about Nigel and yes, he’s a napkin. Is it a bird?” Is it a bee? No, it was Nigel turning himself into a bird or a bee because - being a napkin - he could fold himself into any shape he liked. And it always had to be ‘just so’ for Nigel. Perfectly straight lines and sharp creases, which made him irritatingly… Niggly.
This cartoon story for bedtime, is a story all about Zac and yes, he’s a zucchini. But what on earth IS a zucchini? A ZOO-KHEE-NEE is how you say it, but that doesn’t tell you what it is? Well Zac was one and he loved anything Italian… “Mama Mia!” he gushed tossing his head, shaking the enormous flower that grew out of it. I am pure THEATRE.
