LITTLE CURIOUS, A: LOUD SOFT SHAKE {PREMIERE} (TV)

Summary

One in this series of childrenÕs programs consisting of musical and educational skits in live action, stop-motion, computer, and cel animation. The skits are performed by a cast of everyday objects -- Bob the ball, Mop, Mr. String, the Shoe Family, Doris the door, Little Cup, Plush the stuffed dog, and a couple named Pad and Pencil. In this episode, the emphasis is on objects that are loud or soft, as well as objects that shake. Highlights include the following: Doris taking a look at several loud objects such as a jackhammer, an airplane, a fire truck, and Bob's garish bow tie in "Too Loud!"; Bob urging his friends to creep around the house and speak in whispers so as not to wake Doris in "Talk Softly"; several dogs, including Plush, shaking water off their bodies after being given a bath or playing in the ocean in "Shake It Off"; the Shoe Family performing a tap dance routine and telling jokes onstage in "Shoe Business"; Doris nostalgically telling Bob about her experiences growing up as a young door in "Old Softie"; Plush scheming to get an apple out of a tall tree in "Shake Down"; and the gang sitting on a soft feather bed and flying off to "Slumberland" in "Sleep Softly."
