CBeebies Bedtime Story.
Hello. I'm Derek.
It's time for a Bedtime Story and tonight's is all about a hairy
and playful little dog and some of his neighbourhood cats.
Would you like to hear all about them? Hmm? Good.
The story is called Hairy Maclary Scattercat and it's by Lynley Dodd.
Hairy Maclary felt bumptious and bustly, bossy and bouncy
and frisky and hustly. He wanted to run, he wanted to race
but the main thing he wanted was something to chase.
Greywacke Jones was hunting a bee but along came Hairy Maclary
-and chased her up high in the sycamore tree.
Butterball Brown was washing a paw but along came Hairy Maclary
and bustled him under a rickety door.
Pimpernel Pugh was patting a ball but along came Hairy Maclary
-and chased her away over Pemberton's wall.
Slinky Malinki was down in the reeds but along came Hairy Maclary
and hustled him into a drum full of weeds.
Mushroom Magee was asleep on a ledge, but along came Hairy Maclary
-and chased her away through a hole in the hedge.
Down on the path by an old wooden rail, twitching a bit,
was the tip of a tail.
With a bellicose bark and a boisterous bounce,
Hairy Maclary was ready to pounce.
But around came Scarface Claw who bothered and bustled him,
rustled and hustled him, raced him and chased him all the way home.
Did you enjoy that story? It was called Hairy Maclary Scattercat.
Now, after chasing all those cats, it's Hairy Maclary's bedtime
and I think that means it's your bedtime too.
Sleep well, and I'll see you again soon for another Bedtime Story.
