Little Teddy and the Giants
The little teddy was in the forest. She was hanging out with her sister, Beary, her brother, Owl, and her two friends, Zombie Jem and Mickey. The five of them were having a picnic. They had all sorts of yummy foodstuffs and were all enjoying themselves. “Oh, could you pass me some potatoes?” the little teddy asked Owl, who was sitting across from her. “Of course!” Owl replied, smiling, “here you go!” Owl passed a big bowl of potatoes to the little Teddy. She took a few and ate them up. Then, after a moment, she took the rest and ate them too. She giggled as she passed the empty bowl back to Owl.
The five friends enjoyed their food and, when it was all finished, they cleaned up everything and began to walk to Zombie Jem’s cemetery. “That sure was a nice picnic” Jem said cheerily, “So much great food!” The little teddy rubbed her tummy and smiled. “Oh yes,” she agreed, “so many potatoes!” She was about to say something else when a voice sounded from behind them. “Would you like to go on an adventure?” the voice said. Everyone turned around to see who was talking.
Standing behind them was Teddy Tedaloo. The bear was standing there, holding a copy of his newspaper, The Teddy Tedaloo Times. The little teddy noticed that the paper was opened and he seemed to be reading from it. “What’s this about adventure?” Zombie Jem asked, curious. Teddy Tedaloo looked up from his paper and smiled. “Oh, that,” he answered slyly, “I know where you can find a giant.” Hearing this, the little teddy grew quite excited. “Ooh! I’ve never met a giant!” she said excitedly. “Well then,” the bear replied, “follow me.”
The group followed Teddy Tedaloo through the forest. He led them to an area that none of them had ever been to. “Maybe this isn’t the best idea,” Owl said nervously to everyone else. The little teddy shook her head. “We have to go,” she insisted, “it’ll be so fun!” She remembered fondly Teddy Tedaloo leading her to the fairy teddies. “I think she’s right,” Mickey agreed, “this will be lots of fun! Owl soon found that their excitement was contagious. Soon he was just as eager to see this giant as they were. Beary too was looking forward to seeing the giant. “Oh let’s huwwy up,” she said to everyone, “we want to see the giant!” Teddy Tedaloo laughed. He began to walk a little faster, much to everyone’s delight.
After a while of walking, they came upon a large cave. The little teddy noticed it was much like the one where the fairy teddies had been. “I assure you, it’s different,” Teddy Tedaloo said, seeming to read her mind. The little teddy clapped her paws together. “Ok,” she said eagerly, “let’s go!” She began to head into the cave when Zombie Jem grabbed her paw. “Hold on now, PammyBear,” he told his friend, “It may be exciting and fun, but we must still be careful!” Mickey nodded. “He’s right, Pammy,” he agreed, “we should walk in threes as we head it. Just to be safe.”
Everyone agreed that he was right. Mickey and Zombie Jem walked on either side of the little teddy and Teddy Tedaloo and Owl walked with Beary. The moment they entered the cave, they could feel the temperature drop. “Everyone, do huddle a little closer together to stay warm,” Teddy Tedaloo instructed everyone. They did as he said and continued into the cave. It was a dark cave, so they had to walk slowly. “I do wish we had brought a flashlight,” Mickey said as they made their way through the cave. “Well, we didn’t know we’d be going through a cave,” Zombie Jem answered him. The little teddy laughed. “But is’s jus so exciting,” she said.
They walked a bit further into the cave before they noticed a light at the back of the cave. “OOOH!” the little teddy exclaimed, “That mus be where the giant is!” As soon as she said spoke, a large growl came from the back of the cave. Followed shortly by another. A shadow suddenly appeared on the back wall of the cave. It was a massive shadow that seemed to show not one, but two giants. Another growl sounded through the cave. The shadows now appeared to move.
Everyone began to get nervous. Teddy Tedaloo had said there was only one giant. Now it seemed there were actually two. Were they friendly giants? Maybe they were mean giants who ate teddies for dinner. Maybe it was one giant, but with two heads. These thoughts and concerns along with others raced through the heads of the adventurers. But the little teddy wasn’t going to let fear and concern beat her. “I’m going to meet the giants,” she said bravely, “I’m not afwaid!”
The little teddy walked toward the back of the cave, moving slower the closer she got. Everyone slowly followed her, still afraid of what might come to meet them from the back of the cave. As the Teddy neared the furthest part of the cave, another loud growl rang through the cave. The shadows began to move, seeming to lumber towards the group of explorers.
The little teddy backed up slowly as the shadows came closer. Then suddenly, the shadows began to shrink. And the two giants finally emerged from the back of the cave. Hobbling towards them came two completely normal sized teddies. They looked nearly identical, with one being about half the size of the other. Both teddies were smiling. When they reached the group the littler of the two spoke.
“Hello,” he said happily. He seemed to be a little sleepy. “I is Little Dee and he is Dee.” The other teddy smiled and waved. “We’z cave bears!” Dee told them cheerily. The little teddy giggled. “Oh, we thought you were giants,” she told them. Little Dee and Dee both laughed. “Oh no,” Dee giggled, “Just cave bears. We not giants.” Beary stepped closer to the two and put out her paw. “I’m Beary,” she told the two, “I’m happy to meet you.” Little Dee walked up and gave her a hug. “Oh, hello,” he said, “is nice to meets you too!”
The adventurer went around introducing themselves to the two cave bears. The two turned out to be quite the opposite of scary giants. They discovered that the growling they had heard earlier was actually the sounds of Dee and Little Dee yawning. “The cave just makes it sounds much louder!” Dee giggled. Little Dee began sniffing the air. “Oh, does you has foods?” he asked, “I is starving and I finks I smells foods.” The little teddy and her friends all laughed. “Oh yes,” Zombie Jem said, “We just had a picnic earlier and we have some leftovers!” Little Dee jumped for joy. “Oh!” he exclaimed, “We has never hads picnic before!” Dee nodded. “Its true! Can we has picnic?” he asked.
The adventurers led their new friends outside where they set up a new picnic. They gathered up the food they had leftover and gave it to the cave bears. “Oh thank yous!” Little Dee said excitedly, “So much foods is all very good!” Owl and Beary were sharing some candy and fruit they had brought. “Do you like the candy?” Beary asked Dee as he munched on a bit of everything. “Oh yes!” Dee answered merrily, “Is all so goods!” Owl giggled as he watched the two cave bears. “You two mus be weally hungry,” he laughed. “Cave bears eat lots of foods,” Little Dee told him, “Wees very hungwy all the time!”
The little teddy was having so much fun with her new friends. She went over to Zombie Jem and whispered something in his ear. Her undead friend eyed her curiously. “Are you sure, PammyBear?” he asked her. The little teddy smiled and nodded. “Ok,” he told her happily. He reached into the bag he’d brought his own picnic supplies in. He pulled out a smaller bag and handed it to the little teddy. She walked back over to the two cave bears. “These are for you,” she said smiling, “the fwom my vewy speshul cowwection.”
Out of the little bag, she pulled out two potatoes. She gave one to each bear. They both took a potato. “Whas this?” Little Dee asked. The little teddy giggled. “It’s a potato, siwwy,” she explained, “I wove potatoes! They’re jus so nummy!!” Mickey laughed. “She really loves potatoes,” he told the bear, “and she only shares them if she really likes you!” Little Dee and Dee smiled. They each took a bite of their potato. “OH!” Dee exclaimed, “Potatoes is very yummy!” Little Dee bounced happily. “Oh yes,” he agreed, “Is super yums!” The little teddy was very happy they enjoyed her potatoes.
After spending a while with the two cave bears, it was time for everyone to head home. “It was vewy nice to meet you bof,” the little teddy told her new friends. Both Dee and Little Dee smiled. “We hads fun at picnics!” Little Dee told her. “Oh yes! So much fun and yum foods!” Dee added. The new friends all embraced and said goodbye. “Make sures yoo visits us!” Dee told them all as he and Little Dee headed back into their cave. “Oh we certainly shall!” Mickey answered. The adventurers began their walk back home.
It was a few minutes before anyone realized that Teddy Tedaloo had disappeared. “Where did that silly bear go?” Zombie Jem asked to no one in particular. “Tha’s a good question,” the little teddy said. They looked around for a minute before deciding to just keep on their way. But, to their surprise, Teddy Tedaloo was waiting at Zombie Jem’s cemetery. “Where’d you disappear to?” Mickey asked the bear. “Oh, I had some stuff to take care of,” came the sly answer, “and now I must be going. I shall see you all later!” The little teddy waved as he left. “Bye bye Teddy Tedawoo,” she called to him. “That’s Tedaloo,” he called back, “and I shall see you later!”
The adventurers split up at Zombie Jem’s cemetery. Mickey decided to stay with Jem so they could hold another Jam session. The little teddy, Owl, and Beary hugged and headed home. “They were vewy nice cave bears,” the little teddy said to her siblings. “Yea, I can’t wait to see them again,” Owl replied. Beary nodded. As they headed home, they three of them talked about all the fun adventures they were sure to have with their new friends.
