WATCH OUT FOLKS!

As Bebe and Tom Turkey gather around their feast of fine Dutch cheese


they hear a strange cacophony outside, muffled by the insulating properties of the freshly fallen snow...hmmmm...could it be?


Correct. Here comes Tea Rat, with no hat, no scarf, just his boots

and Rattus, appropriately clothed 

and BALZAC!

WATCH OUT FOLKS!

The season has begun.

Tea Rat: Woo-hoo!

Woof...bark...bark...wooof.

Rattus: Tea Rat, be careful where you steer this thing. This is not a chariot race and you're not Ben Hur-rat!

Woof...woof.

Rattus: Even Balzac's getting nervous. Now slow down. This isn't the Nowhere 500, and you're not Mario Ratdretti.

Tea Rat: Woo...hooo.

Rattus: TREE...EEE!

Bark...Ah...oooo...Ah...roooo!

Rattus: I know how you feel, boy. Tea Rat, let me steer. OOOHHH. ROCK, ROCK, ROCK.

Tea Rat: Wooo...hoooo!

ARRRGHH....GRRRR...GRRR.

Rattus: Me too, boy. Tea Rat, you're scaring us to death. SLOW DOWN. This is not a moon launch and you're not Neil Volestrong.

Tea Rat: WOOO....HOOOOO!

WOOF...BARK...BARK... AHOOOO.

TREE! BIG TREE! TREEEEeee...


CRASH...BAM...BONK... KERSPLATT... DING... BOINK... BUMP... SMOOSH... SMACK...

Rattus: Oh, my aching head.

Arrrooooooo.

Rattus: You said it, boy. Well, Mr. Evil Kegerbil. What do you have to say for yourself?

Tea Rat: wooooo...hooo?

Dear Penny, and Anita, I must say the illustrations just get better and better! Such talent, and whimsical imaginations! Christel

Oh TeaRat, please take my hat, and scarf, I have an extra that Old Man River gave me..he lives down by the landfill you know. I wouldn't want you to catch a cold, along with the bumps and bruises! Maybe Rattus could help you steer, and Balzac..hang on! wweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xoxo Hazel~
