Hey, I’ve got half an idea!
How about a sausage chicken?
(Two kids, one pointing finger in air with idea.)
Like a griffin… but more fun!
(Back half sausage dog, front half chicken, in front of serious griffin.)
Oh, like a gorilla horse?
That’s a gorse. Or a horilla!
(Bottom half gorilla, top half horse)
A hippo buffalo! A hippoffalo!
(Both front halves. No rears. Faces baffled.)
A Mr Zoo!
(Bottom half a man in suit, top half six different animal top halves.)
(Spider body, beautiful butterfly wings.)
(dolphin top half with crayfish bottom.)
Hang on, a sun moon? A moun!
No, wait, that’s an eclipse!
(Sun and moon halves, faces in each staring at each other, looking cross-eyed.)
A human walrus?
Haha, that’s a merma- oh!
(Woman’s bottom half, top half walrus, holding trident, wearing crown)
(Body of person jumping, clicking feet, hands in air. Face scrunched and angry.)
A radiook! That’s a radio that’s a book.
(Radio with small music stand with music sheet built into top of it. Kid intently reading music, while rest of him is jigging.)
And a serious dance!
I want to go to a schuck!
(Truck cabin pulling an old wooden school.)
How about a dinozer?
(Bulldozer with dinosaur bottom half instead of treads. And a triceratops with bottom half of bulldozer treads.)
(Helicopter with open underside releasing rain and lightening.
Dare to dream! A flowcket!

(Bottom half surfer on a surfboard. Top half a magician, startled, pulling a startled rabbit out of a hat.)
What’s halves about a river mou- ahhh.
(River, fish jumping, frog on rock, kid in rubber tire, etc, flowing into a wide mouth.)
(Eagle top half, crocodile bottom.)
(two kids from start, wide-eyed, hands out, smiling at each other.)
(Cat, top half hanging onto branch with claws. Nervously looking over shoulder while bottom half is bending in air to pee on tree trunk)
(Two bottom ends one of a cat, the other of a dog. The dog end is farting.)
Yeah, nah, that’s great!
(Two kids sitting, wiping away tears of laughter.)
