Looney Bay: The Dead Parrot Script

This week we tackle the tricky subject of raising people from the dead

Biblical Lesson: Jesus raises Lazareth from the dead.

Script: Baby dinosaur is lonely and upset that he is the last of the dinosaurs. Victor Vulture comes up with a scheme to trick baby dinosaur out of money. He claims he can raise the dead. The plan is to pretend that Salty the parrot is dead and then have Victor say the magic words and bring him back to life. Easy enough. Unfortunately Salty doesn't realize that dead birds can't talk and the whole plan quickly falls apart.

Thoughts: This was a tricky subject to write a script about. The monty Python title only occurred to me after I had written 3/4ths of the script. The magic words that Victor used to raise the dead came from Thundercats: "Ancient Spirits of Evil, transform this decayed bird to Salty, the ever-living!"

Ad Libs/Blunders: A kid called out that John was performing Salty the Parrot. Then the kids explained how John's magic trick worked. Darn kids.

Overall: Fun script
