"Filmore Fish and Friends" Puppet Story

I'm so lucky at my new library system to have extremely talented co-workers. One of them is the inimitable Miss Elizabeth at our other branch in the city. Here's a song she paired with these truly awesome semi-cannibalistic fish puppets.

Filmore Fish & Friends

Poor ole me swimming in the sea
Not one friend to swim with me
BURP (burp up a fish) 'Scuze me!
Hi Buddy! Let's do a Loop-the-Loop!

Poor ole me swimming in the sea
Not one friend to swim with me
BURP (burp up a fish) 'Scuze me!
Hi Pal!.... Let's do a deep sea dive!

Poor ole me swimming in the sea
Not one friend to swim with me
BURP (burp up a fish) 'Scuze me!
Hi Tiny!... Let's do a flying fish!

WHEEEE! 

I changed them a little to best suit my absolute failure of an ability to memorize:

Poor ole me swimming in the sea
Not one friend to swim with me
BURP (burp up a fish)
Hey, buddy! Wouldya swim with me? 

I used my deepest voice with the first verse, normal voice with the second, and highest for the last. I really drew the burps out for maximum effect and because it was actually kind of hard to get just one fish out of there.

Fabulous Fish! Love the deep to high voices and long burp...said the drama girl!

Where did you get the fish??? I can't find them anywhere.

Oops, sorry Unknown! We **THINK** they're from Mr. Anderson's Company, but I believe they have gone out of business, unfortunately. I would love to own this set myself.

Something like this would work:

Thanks for the fish info, Anne. Mister Anderson's was about 30 miles from where I live!! I might order the Canadian set, but those fish are wonderful!!
