Boys’ or Girls' Reading (An introduction as spoken by the Narrator.) Once upon a time, in a humble yet loving home beside Regents Park in London, there lived a Dalmatian family who had two lovely pets, Roger and Anita. Every day, Roger wrote wonderful songs and Anita painted wonderful pictures. Meanwhile Nanny kept the house in order. Every night, as Anita and Roger would work and Nanny prepared dinner, the puppies gathered in front of the television to watch their favorite celebrity, Thunderbolt, the Wonderdog!
Girls’ Reading (As spoken by Cruella about the puppies.) Why I don’t think I’ve quite seen anything like them. Look at the depth! Look at the patterns! Why they’re practically works of art! And just what I need to complete my collection! You know what? I’ve changed my mind. I’ve been without a pet long enough. No one to play with. I can’t wait to wear . . . I mean, care for all the little puppies. I’ll buy the whole litter! How much?

my beautiful coat
Speak: Why I can just see it now, I'll have the only one like it in the whole world.
Sing: My beautiful coat, my beautiful coat Imagining gives me a lump in my throat A spotted fur sensation I will be
My mittens will warm with warmth that's unmatched Made out of the skins of the puppies we've snatched No toaster will be toastier then me Cruella, Cruella

#1 - JOJO Now that is a very unusual hat. I wonder what’s under a hat such as that. It could be a creature they call the Ga-Zat Who balances things on his head, ‘cause it’s flat. Or a stripe-loving Pipester from Upper Mount Bat. Or a sort of a kind of a hat-wearing cat!
#2 - CAT I can see that you’ve got quite a mind for your age! Why one Think and you dragged me right onto the stage! Now, I’m here, there is no telling what may ensue With a Cat such as me and a Thinker like you!
#3 - GERTRUDE I’ll bet you forgot about Gertrude McFuzz. Well, that’s nothing new. I mean, everyone does. But Gertrude did something that few birds could do... So this is the Tale of Miss Gertrude. Part Two.
#4 - HORTON That bird let that clover drop somewhere inside Of a great patch of clovers, a hundred miles wide! I’ll find it. I’ll find it! I’ll find it or bust! Well, I shall find my friends on their small speck of dust. Yes, clover by clover by clover with care I’ll listen and call, are you there? Are you there?
#5 - MAYZIE I won’t be gone long, kid. I give you my word. I’ll hurry right back, ‘cause I’m that sort of bird! Oh, Horton, I promise, I’ll fly back real soon. I’d only be gone for, say, one afternoon!

ALONE IN THE UNIVERSE
I'm alone in the universe. So alone in the universe. I've found magic but they don't see it They all call me a lunatic. Ok, call me a lunatic. If I stand on my own, so be it. 'Cause I have wings. Yes, I can fly Around the moon And far beyond the sky
This might be a pool, Like I've read of in books, Connected to one of those Underground brooks! An underground river That starts here and flows Right under this bathtub! And then Who knows?! It's possible! Anything's possible!
