The Small Blue Monster


Once there was a small blue monster.

No… wait.. I’ll start again.

In the beginning, there was nothing – well, only an inky darkness of night.

– But what happened to the blue monster?

The small blue monster.

– Yes, that one!

Wait and see.

IN THE DARKNESS, a voice rang out.. It sounded like.. golden bells on a late summer’s day.

I don’t like this. It’s too dark and I can’t see anything, said the voice.

Oh hang on. I can see. And I’m an octopus. 

(Light appears). Octopus appears, looking at their arms and legs.

Well, I’d love to stay and talk to you, but I have some stuff to do, over there (gestures to distance). So I’ll see you later. 

Moves out of picture. Appears at the bottom of the frame: I won’t be very long..

Tentacles up and swims away to top right mid screen. Ink blot spreads on the screen.


Speech bubble “BYE!”
