This is a story cartoon 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.
This is a cartoon 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?” “I don’t know,” said Alice sounding helpless, “Try a few things.” Queenie thought it was worth a try and in the corner of the room, she saw an old pram. “I could try eating that,” she said and without much more ado, she swallowed it. Wheels and all.
“How do you feel?” asked Alice sounding a trifle alarmed. Remember she was an alarm clock. “Most peculiar,” said Queenie going a shade pale. ”I think I’d better lie down.” But as soon as she moved, she clanked. CLANK! “Oh, I do beg your pardon!” she exclaimed and clanked again even louder. Fortunately for Queenie, the pram didn’t stay down long and soon she was back to where she’d started. Cold, thin and even more quivery. “You must try something else,” said Alice. “But what?”
“FEATHERS!’ chorused the Bed-Bugs who hopped out of nowhere, all identical in their stripy PJ’s and slippers. “But where would I get feathers from?” asked Queenie. “I couldn’t possibly leave the house.”
“Of course you can!” chided the Bed-Bugs, “We’ll take you to the Duck House tonight.” So when it was dark and the moon was full, Queenie followed the column of Bed-Bugs down the garden path. They went through the gate, along the road, and into the park.
She knocked on the Duck House door gently and stepped inside. “Err… excuse me,” she faltered, “I wonder if you could help me?” The ducks were very surprised to see something as funny-looking as Queenie and wondered what on earth she was doing there? “I’ve been told I need feathers,” she explained and explained too about being cold and thin and quivery. “I see,’ said a very nice duck. “Now you just leave everything to me.”
And with that, she turned to the others and whispered. And soon they were all smiling and nodding. They all stood up and without a word or a quack, they flapped their wings very hard. They flapped and they shook and they flapped again until every loose feather fell out. ‘There you are my dear,” said the kindly duck pointing to the big pile of feathers. “Oh! Thank you!” said Queenie. And she ate and she ate and she ate until every feather had gone. And do you know what? Queenie was no longer cold and thin and quivery. She was fat and warm and snugly just like a real quilt should be.
She was so happy! She thanked all the ducks warmly all over again and hurried off home with the Bed-Bugs following behind her. She didn’t care if anyone saw her and everyone did. They all told their friends they’d seen a fat snuggly quilt dancing down the street followed by a ribbon of Bed-Bugs… But no-one believed it. Would you believe it if someone told you? I wouldn’t!

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
Cartoon stories for kids, this is a 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?”

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.
