Aesop's Fables "The Lion and the Mouse" is based on the Aesop's Fable story and adapted especially for the puppet stage by The Creativity Institute founders, who are veteran career advertising writers and parents. The "moral of the story" of the fable is clearly brought out in this contemporary, original, humorous adaptation, demonstrating that little friends may prove to be true friends.

Script is written for two puppets: a Lion and a Mouse, but could be adapted to other puppets. The puppet show also uses the voice of an off-stage narrator, which could be a parent or child. Puppet show length is approximately 2 1/2 - 3 minutes.

"Get in Line, One at Time" is an original puppet show script that demonstrates the positive behavior support message of how the friends don't get anything done trying to all push at the same time, but come to understand the value of standing in line. The script has four speaking parts and is approximately 3-4 minutes.

The original positive behavior support puppet show script, "Friends Are as Friends Do," demonstrates how the animals don't like being friends with a bully who isn't trying to be anyone's friend. The script has four speaking parts and puppet show length is approximately 3-4 minutes.

Also included with these puppet show scripts is a set of puppet show stage directions that The Creativity Institute put together to help parents and children stage more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
