Land Of Pretend Puppet Skit - Linn and Weaver Discuss Things that Change and Things that Stay the Same
In the Land of Pretend, Linn is having some trouble adjusting to all the changes and new ways of doing things. But with a little help from his best friend Weaver, Linn begins to realize that although many things are changing, there are still many things that stay the same. All he has to do is look down deep enough, and he'll find them.
Linn is a very shy, and sweet lion. He lives in a water fountain in The Land of Pretend, and he enjoys playing with his friends who come to visit him. Linn can sometimes be easily influenced by people, so his friends try to give him a good example to follow. Aside from his personality, Linn has several hobbies, including reading, listening to music, and performing in plays. Out of all the puppets, Linn takes the most pleasure in talking about difficult things with the people who love and care about him. That gives him a good feeling to know that there is always someone of whom he can feel comforted by when he needs it most.
Weaver is a very kind, compassionate beaver. Ever since he was young, Weaver's father worked as a carpenter, and he wanted to pass the business down to his son, who was very eager to learn the trade. Now, Weaver owns his own carpenter shop in The Land of Pretend, and he enjoys cutting and carving wood into the most beautiful assortment of wooden furnishings. He can make porch swings, tables, frames for pictures, fences, and many other exciting things. When he's not working in his shop, Weaver likes visiting with friends and enjoys a number of pastimes, such as reading about people from history, and browsing through cookbooks. Even though Weaver feels unsure of himself at times, he surrounds himself with loyal friends who love and support him. Weaver was never book smart, but he does know a thing or two about cutting and carving wood.
Josephine is a "mother-like" giraffe who loves to take care of people. As a young giraffe, Josephine was always in the kitchen with her mother, Nancy giraffe, making all sorts of wonderful foods, from Baked Alaska all the way to Filet Mignon. She also specializes in a variety of beverages, including her famous homemade sweet tea. All of her friends prize her sweet tea, and sometimes they ask if she had made anymore. Josephine loves her friends very dearly, and she treats them almost as if they were her own children, earning her the nickname "Everybody's Mom". She, like everyone else, has several pastimes, including cooking, listening to her favorite musical composer, Tchaikovsky, and writing her own cookbooks. Her best selling cookbook, entitled Made With Love, contains a list of recipes that were passed down to her from generations. In it, she explains how to make the different foods that she made when she was a child, and adds her own special touch of love to them, which is why the title of her book is fitting. Even though she may sometimes get a little bit defensive about her food, Josephine is gentle and sweet, and the perfect friend to have.
Nataliana, full name Nataliana Tabby Cat, (or Natal for short) is a very sweet cat whole loves fancy things. She takes the saying, "dress to impress" very seriously, and is always seen looking her best. Nataliana loves to wear fancy dresses and hats, but the thing she loves more than her ornate style is singing. Nataliana is a gifted singer who enjoys using her ability for others. She also enjoys cooking with Josephine, and both of them are very good friends. Although, she can be very prideful and will get very extremely offended if you don't like something that she sang. But overall, she genuinely does care about her friends' well-being and is willing to help them when they need it.
Henry, is a British-speaking hedgehog who loves boats, and often wishes he could be out to sea sailing away. Because Linn's fountain is almost the only water source for his sailing, Henry likes to go over to the water fountain and play with his small boat model. He also likes to tell his friends about the history of sailing, and how important it was as a source of income. Besides playing with his boat model, Henry is a skilled digger, and is capable of digging some very big holes. Sometimes he gets a bit carried away and will put holes everywhere, which can upset his friends. He can also at times be forgetful, but aside from that, Henry is very loyal to his friends and would never let them down.
Willie is a very timid member of the puppet team. He doesn't talk much, but he does make a very defined "snort" sound. Willie came to The Land of Pretend when Weaver found him at a barn. Ever since then, Willie has been able to make a lot of friends and has been able to explore a world outside the barn. Because Willie snorts when he talks, not everyone can understand what he's saying. Therefore, Weaver will often translate what Willie says so that everybody can understand what it is he said. Sometimes people don't always take him seriously because of his adorable demeanor, and not everybody can understand what he's saying, but Willie is very sweet and definitely is a force to be reckoned with.
Frappuccino is an adorable little lamb who loves to play and have fun. He is very outgoing and isn't afraid to interact with people, especially his own friends. As the newest member of the team, he isn't always aware of the rules in The Land of Pretend, and he can sometimes get into some trouble. But he honestly does try his best to follow the rules and to get along with those around him. Some people underestimate him because of his adorableness, but he can at times be quite feisty. Overall, he is a very good friend to the puppets and tries his best to behave and be the best lamb that he can possibly be.
Hueless, Clueless, Louis, and Gregory Whittington are the four mice who travel around and sing together. They all enjoy eating cheese, preferably Swiss, and they all enjoy each other's company. They also like to go to their big family reunions where all sorts of different mice are present. All of them say grace then eat cheese together. When they first met Nataliana, they thought that she was going to eat them. But she assured them that she has never eaten a mouse in her whole life and never will. After that, the mice and Nataliana became good friends; however, both the mice and Nataliana can sing, and that has caused a little bit of tension between them. But overall, Hueless, Clueless, Louis, and Gregory Whittington have good relations with those around them and love to sing for their friends.
