Storyline Edit

Join Huckle as his mom (Mother Cat) and dad (Father Cat) sing him nursery rhymes and lullabies before going to bed.

Plot Edit

The video begins with the entire Busytown at night seen on birds-eye view. Then it goes on to Huckle Cat's house. At bedtime in Huckle's bedroom in his house, Mother Cat sings the nursery rhyme, "Little Jack Horner", on the Mother Goose book. Then Huckle sings the last line of the rhyme as Little Jack Horner himself. Mother Cat closes the book and tells Huckle that is enough Mother Goose for tonight. She tucks Huckle in bed and tells him it's time to go to sleep. But he doesn't want to go to sleep without Lowly. He asks Mother Cat if they can look for him some more. Father Cat is sure Lowly is around here somewhere, so he'll find him later. But right now, it's time for Huckle to go to sleep. He asks Mother Cat if she could sing just one more song (Starlight, Starbright). Mother Cat responds. Then she sings just one more. Then, Huckle says the last two lines of the lullaby.

Then, she kisses Huckle good night. Huckle wishes he could find Lowly and dreams of himself in a strange land at sunset that doesn't look like Busytown anymore. He wonders if Lowly is here. Huckle looks around and calls for his friend by saying the words "Lowly! Lowly, where are you?" as his phrase, but Huckle can't find him because it's getting late. He guesses he'd better start looking for him.

While Huckle starts looking for Lowly, he first stops to look at Lily Bunny, Dennis and Patty Elephant playing London Bridge. Lily asks Huckle if he wants to come and play with them. Huckle agrees to play, but maybe just for a little while. Huckle gets caught by Dennis and Patty. After that, Huckle tells Lily, Dennis and Patty that was fun and they would like to play again. Huckle likes to, but right now had better look for his friend, Lowly Worm. He's lost. Huckle asks them where he is and thinks he's lost too. Patty tells him he's in Mother Goose Land. Lily says it's the nicest place to be. She asks Huckle to stay and play with them some more. But Huckle really must find Lowly, then asks Lily if they've seen Lowly. She asks Huckle what Lowly looks like. He says he kind of looks like Lowly Worm. Patty, Dennis and Lily haven't seen him and they are sorry. But Huckle guesses he'll have to keep looking. So he goes on his way to keep looking for Lowly, while calling, "Lowly! Lowly, where are you?"

On the way, Huckle stops and looks at Mary Fox and her little lamb, Fluffy. Mary tells Fluffy that it can't go with her to school today, so it has to stay here and be good while she's gone. But when the lamb follows Mary to school, the children at the playground laughed at them and Miss Honey is afraid. She tells Mary that she will have to take that lamb home again. Mary and Fluffy agree sadly. But she tells Mary that she can bring Fluffy in just this once to make it her show-and-tell for today. Huckle comes up to school, excuses Miss Honey and asks her if she's seen Lowly Worm, but she hasn't. She asks him if he’s in kindergarten, but he tells Miss Honey he isn’t. Then she's afraid she haven't seen him. She tells him to go and ask Old Mother Hubbard who lives just down the road. Huckle agrees, so he heads on his way to Hubbard's house while calling, "Lowly! Lowly!"

At Hubbard's house, she goes to the cupboard to fetch poor Gerald Dog a bone. But when she gets there, it is bare and so poor Gerald had none. Hubbard goes to the fishmonger's, the grocer's and the cobbler's to buy some fish, some fruit and some shoes. But when she comes back to her house, Gerald licks the dish, plays the flute and reads the magazine. The magazine says "BIG SALE ON BONES." Suddenly, there's a knock at the door, she opens it. It was Huckle who misses his friend, Lowly Worm. Huckle tells Hubbard and Gerald he was wondering if they've seen his friend. Hubbard thinks of Lowly Worm and then asks Huckle what he looks like. He tells her he still kind of looks like Lowly Worm. She didn't seen him in the grocer's or the cobbler's. Hubbard is sorry. She would like to help Huckle look for him, but she has to go down to the butcher's shop, because they're having big sale on bones. Hubbard and Gerald leave the house to go down to the butcher's shop. So she and Gerald are on their way to the butcher's shop. Huckle guesses he'll have to keep looking for his friend again. And so, he walks away while keep looking for his friend again by calling, "Lowly! Lowly!"

Little Bo Peep is looking and calling for her sheep. Some of her sheep's names are Fred, Ginger, Isabella, and Ferdinand. After the song, when Huckle looks and calls for his friend Lowly, he bumps into Bo Peep. She tells Huckle that she lost her sheep and she doesn't know where to find them. Huckle tells Bo Peep that he lost Lowly and he doesn't know where to find him either. Bo Peep tells Huckle that they're behind that bush. Huckle and Bo Peep look into the bush but they can't find them, so they called for her sheep and his friend again. But they still can't find them, because they're not here. Maybe her sheep are over there in that field. Bo Peep tells Huckle she will go look over there and he'll go look up the road. Huckle hopes Bo Peep finds her sheep. Bo Peep hopes Huckle finds his friend. So they had to split up to find them.

Elsewhere in Mother Goose Land, Luis Cat plays the fiddle, the cow jumps over the moon, D.W. Dog laughs to see such sport, and the dish runs away with the spoon. Meanwhile, Huckle keeps looking and calling for his friend Lowly and does not watch where he is going. The dish and the spoon trip over his foot and doesn't ask if they've seen Lowly, but they’re excused and kind of in a rush, because they're late for dinner and run off. Poor Huckle wanders off sadly that he'd lost his friend, dragging a small brown stone in the road by kicking it with his foot.

Little Miss Muffet eats her curds and whey, when suddenly she sees a spider. Then she runs away from the spider and bumps into Huckle with fright while she keeps running away. Huckle thinks that the spider has seen Lowly Worm. He gets up and walks slowly up to the spider, who sat down beside her and frightened her away. The spider doesn't know why Miss Muffet has a problem with him. He really is a very nice fellow. Huckle is sure the spider is. Huckle looks lost. The spider asks Huckle how he can help him. Huckle is looking for his friend, Lowly Worm. He asks the spider if he's seen him go past here. The spider says no, but he did see all the king's horses and men pass by. Humpty Dumpty must have fallen off the wall again and they can't put him back together. Huckle thanks the spider and sets off to keep looking for Lowly again by calling, "Lowly! Lowly!" But it's getting late again.

Huckle stops to look in the window of the Three Little Kittens' house and sees Mary Mouse who runs up and down the clock. Huckle doesn't ask her if she's seen Lowly. After the song, she says she's got to get the clock fixed. Huckle wonders if there's anyone home. Then he hears sad meows and goes up to the backyard of the house. They were the Three Little Kittens (Kelly, Nicky and Abby Cat) in their backyard. While Mother Kitten is hanging up the wet clothes, Huckle comes up to ask them what is wrong and he can help them. They’re sad because they’re missing their mittens... again. So they ask Huckle if he's seen them. But Huckle says no and tells them he’s sorry and he hasn't seen them. Then he asks them if they have seen Lowly. He's lost him. They haven't because they have trouble at finding things, but the only thing they do is lose them. So they need help from him. If they don't find their mittens, they won't be able to have any more pie. But when he finds their mittens are in the bush, the Three Little Kittens are surprised and excited. Then they cheer, run to pull them out, put them on and thank him. Then they tell their mother they'd found their mittens. Mother Kitten is so surprised and glad then they should have some pie. She thanks Huckle for helping the Three Little Kittens find their mittens before letting them have some pie, then Mother Kitten asks him to have some pie. Huckle says no. But he would like is to find his friend, Lowly Worm. So Huckle asks Mother Kitten if she's seen Lowly too. She hasn't seen him yet. She tells Huckle to go down the road to the farm and talk to Little Boy Blue. She also tells him will find Lowly over there by the haystack. Perhaps Little Boy Blue has seen Huckle's friend. Huckle tells them he could ask him, but he has to go, so he goes on his way to the farm to find him.

On his way to the farm, Huckle Cat and Little Bo Peep are calling for his friend (Lowly Worm) and her sheep (Fred, Ginger, Isabella and Ferdinand) when suddenly they bump into each other again. Bo Peep greets Huckle again. She guesses he hasn't found his friend yet and she hasn't found her sheep either. Huckle tells Bo Peep he was just going to ask Little Boy Blue if he's seen Lowly. Maybe they could go to the farm and ask him about her sheep. When they got to the barn, they don't ask him if he's seen Lowly and her sheep. But he's fast asleep under the haystack and his feet are shown. Then, after the rhyme/song, Bo Peep found her sheep at last. She tells them where they have been. She was so worried about them. Then Bo Peep notices Little Boy Blue is still sleeping under the haystack. She quiets her sheep and tells them they can't just run off like that. Her sheep have to tell Bo Peep where they're going as she leads them down the road. It looks like poor Huckle will never find Lowly, and so he wanders off sadly.

Old Woman lives in a shoe. She has so many bunny rabbit children but she doesn't know what to do. So, she calls them to line up by ringing the bell. Then she gives them some broth or soup without any bread and kisses them all soundly and put them to bed. After the song, she gives some soup to one of her children in named Betsy, which the Old Woman mistakes as Bonnie. Then, at last, she gives the last spoonful to one of her children and tells him he's off to bed. He is not one of her children. But his name is Huckle and he's looking for his friend, Lowly. Huckle asks the Old Woman if she's seen him. She thinks of Lowly and then asks Huckle if he is one of her children. Huckle says no and he doesn't think so, because Lowly is a worm. Then Old Woman definitely hasn't seen him. But she tells Huckle to go the town square and ask Wee Willie Winkie who knows where everybody is. Huckle thanks the Old Woman, says goodbye, and goes on his way to the town square in Mother Goose Land.

At 8 o'clock at night, Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town square in Mother Goose Land upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown while rapping at the window and crying through the lock, "Are there children all in bed for now it's 8 o'clock?" After the rhyme/song, when Huckle reaches the town square after the rhyme, he asks Willie if he's excused. Willie is sorry, but he can't stop the talk. He has to make sure all the children are in the bed. Huckle sits on the front porch steps of one of the houses and Willie asks Huckle why isn't he in bed. Huckle was in bed, but now he's looking for his friend Lowly. He's lost. Willie thinks that's too bad. He'd like to help Huckle look for Lowly, but Willie hasn't finished his job here. He's sorry again, but he has to go. So he runs away to finish his job. Poor Huckle puts his paws on his cheeks, thinking that he'd lost his friend again while he hears Willie shouting, "Lights out! It's 8 o'clock! Time for bed!" Then Huckle sighs while he hears laughing. Then he looks up. The laughing is coming from the big castle. Maybe the people in the big castle will know where Lowly is, Huckle thinks. It belongs to Old King Cole. And so, Huckle decides to go to see King Cole's party in his castle.

At King Cole’s party in his castle, Huckle stops and sees Little Bo Peep, Gerald Dog who plays the flute, Luis Cat who plays the fiddle, D.W. Dog, the dish, the spoon, Little Miss Muffet, the spider and King Cole dancing. While they're dancing, King Cole calls for his pipe, his bowl, and his fiddlers three (Arthur, Stuart and Rudy Pig). After the rhyme/song, Huckle and King Cole applaud for them and he tells him that was fun. That's what they do in his castle. Then, King Cole asks Huckle if they want to play hide and seek. He'd love to, but he needs to find his friend Lowly. He asks King Cole if he's seen him. King Cole asks him Lowly is very long and thin, and wears a green hat, and one shoe... but he hasn't seen him. But if he does, he'll tell him Huckle's looking for Lowly. Huckle is so upset again, but he tells Huckle they haven't had their pie yet. King Cole asks him if he can stay for a piece of pie. Huckle likes to, but he has to find Lowly.

Huckle accidentally goes into the kitchen and he thinks that this isn't the way out. The royal baker (Bob Fox) greets him to come in that he is just in time, so he can help him take the pie in to Old King Cole. Suddenly, a blackbird pops out of the pie. The baker tells the blackbird to get back into the pie, because it's supposed to be a surprise. So Huckle and the baker take the pie with 4-and-20 blackbirds in to King Cole at his party. Meanwhile, Lowly Worm appears from the outside kitchen window and jumps onto the table then into the bag of flour, pops up from the bag and he's all covered with flour, and makes the surprise pie for Huckle in the kitchen. After Huckle and the baker take the blackbird pie to King Cole at his party, he opens the pie and there are blackbirds everywhere. King Cole is very pleased. Then he greets Huckle again and asks him if he's found his friend Lowly. Huckle says no. But he tells King Cole that he looked everywhere and asked everybody in Mother Goose Land, and nobody can help him. King Cole asks Huckle if he has asked Mother Goose. If anyone can help him, it's Mother Goose herself. She knows everything that goes on in Mother Goose Land. Huckle asks King Cole how he will find her. King Cole tells Huckle to come with him and they go outside the castle.

She comes out of the sky after Huckle and King Cole called Mother Goose her by saying the magic words: "Higgledy Piggledy, pudding and pie! Come Mother Goose! Come out of the sky!" and she greets to Huckle. She asks Huckle he called her. Huckle guesses he did. He asks Mother Goose to help him find his friend Lowly Worm. She agrees. They'll look for him together. But first, she is going to take him home in Busytown because his mom and dad will be worried about him. So Huckle climbs onto her back, she carries him to the sky for home, and King Cole waves and says good-bye to Huckle and he shouts goodbye back. All on his way home, they see the cow who jumped over the moon (Mother Goose thinks that was the highest jump yet), Wee Willie Winkie who checks all the children are in bed, but he should be in bed too, Little Boy Blue who finally woke up blowing his horn, but now is the time he should be sleeping, the Three Little Kittens who lost their mittens again, but Mother Goose is sure they will find them, and Mary's little lamb fast asleep. Huckle asks Mother Goose where Lowly is. At last, they found Lowly. But when Huckle wakes up from his dream, he sees Mother Cat who answers him Lowly's right here and they had found him, because he's been in the house all along. Huckle thanks Mother Goose by mistake, but he means his mom.

When Lowly Worm who arrives home from the kitchen at King Cole's castle in Mother Goose Land to Huckle Cat's bedroom at his house in Busytown, Father Cat tells Huckle he's been making him a surprise pie. Huckle is so glad and thanks Lowly. Lowly dusts off the flour while he gives it to Mother Cat. Then she puts the surprise pie here in the window tonight, and the family will all have a piece tomorrow. Then Father Cat kisses Huckle goodnight and tucks him in his bed. Then Mother Cat tucks Lowly in his bed too and takes his hat off. Then she sings a lullaby (Sleep, Baby, Sleep) as Huckle and Lowly go to sleep. Father Cat joins in too.

During the last four lines of the lullaby, we pan to the left to the bedroom window with the surprise pie and fade to the outside of the bedroom window of Huckle's house as the blackbirds fly out of the pie. Then we fade to and pan above the entire Busytown at night seen on birds-eye view to the stars in the sky. Then, they form into the words "THE END".

  • Mother Kitten: Lowly Worm. No, I can't say I haven't met anyone by that name. Why don't you try talking to Little Boy Blue? You'll find him over there by that haystack. Perhaps he's seen your friend.
  • Huckle Cat: All right. I'll ask him, but I have to go. Bye. (waves and leaves)
  • Abby Cat: Goodbye!
  • Kelly Cat: Goodbye!
  • Mother Kitten: Now we'll have some pie. Someone get the plates and forks.

(cuts to Little Bo Peep)

  • Little Bo Peep: Sheep! Oh, sheepies!

(cuts to Huckle Cat)

  • Huckle Cat: Lowly! Lowly!!

(cuts back to Little Bo Peep)

  • Little Bo Peep: Isabella! Ferdinand!
  • Huckle Cat: Lowly! Lowly!!

(Huckle comes closer to Bo Peep and they bump into each other again)

  • Huckle Cat: Oops!
  • Little Bo Peep: Oh! Hello again. I guess you haven't found your friend yet.
  • Huckle Cat: No. And you haven't your sheep either, I see. I was just going over to the farm to ask Little Boy Blue if he's seen Lowly. Maybe you could ask him about your sheep.

  • Little Bo Peep: My sheep! Where have you been? I was so worried about you! (she notices Little Boy Blue is sleeping and quiets her sheep) Shh! You can't just run off like that! You have tell me where you're going! (she leads them down the road)
  • Huckle Cat: (sighs) It looks like I'll never find Lowly. (wanders off sadly)

  • Old Woman: Soup time! Okay, children, line up!

  • Old Woman: (gives some soup to Betsy) Here's some soup, Bonnie.
  • Betsy: I'm not Bonnie. I'm Betsy.
  • Old Woman: Sorry, honey. (then Betsy goes inside Old Woman's shoe and Old Woman gives some soup to Huckle) Off to bed, dear!
  • Huckle Cat: Uh, I'm not one of your children.
  • Old Woman: Why, so you're not.
  • Huckle Cat: My name is Huckle. And I'm looking for my friend, Lowly Worm. Have you seen him?
  • Old Woman: (thinking) Hmm... Lowly... Lowly... Is he one of my children?
  • Huckle Cat: (laughing) No, I don't think so. He's a worm.
  • Old Woman: Then I definitely haven't seen him. Hmm. Maybe you should go to the town square and ask Wee Willie Winkie. He knows where everybody is.
  • Huckle Cat: Thank you. (waves and leaves) Goodbye.

  • Huckle Cat: Excuse me... (Wee Willie Winkie runs up to Huckle and skids to a stop) have you?
  • Wee Willie Winkie: Sorry. I can't stop the talk. I have to make sure all the children are in bed.

(Huckle sits down on the front porch steps of one of the houses)

  • Wee Willie Winkie: Come to think of it, why aren't you in bed?
  • Huckle Cat: I was in bed. But now I'm looking for my friend Lowly. He's lost.
  • Wee Willie Winkie: That's too bad. I'd like to help you look for him, but I haven't finished my job here. Sorry, I've got to go. (leaves) Goodbye.

(Huckle puts his paws on his cheeks and looks down sadly hearing Wee Willie Winkie saying)

  • Wee Willie Winkie: (offscreen) Lights out! It's eight o'clock! Time for bed!

(Huckle sadly looks up and down, breathes slowly, sniffles and hears laughing then he looks up)

  • Huckle Cat: Oh. Maybe the people in that big castle will know where Lowly is. (goes to the castle)

  • Huckle Cat: That was fun!
  • Old King Cole: Of course it was fun! That's what we do in my castle! We have fun! Ho ho ho! Would you like to play hide and seek?
  • Huckle Cat: I'd love to, but I need to find my friend, Lowly Worm. Have you seen him?
  • Old King Cole: Is that the fellow who's very long and thin?
  • Huckle Cat: Yes!
  • Old King Cole: And wears a green hat?
  • Huckle Cat: Yes!
  • Old King Cole: And one shoe?
  • Huckle Cat: Yes, yes, that's Lowly!
  • Old King Cole: Haven't seen him. But if I do see him, I'll tell him you're looking for him!
  • Huckle Cat: (sadly) Well... goodbye.
  • Old King Cole: But, we haven't had our pie yet! Can't you stay for a piece of pie?
  • Huckle Cat: I'd like to, but I really have to find Lowly. (goes away from Old King Cole at his party to the kitchen in the castle) Oops, this isn't the way out.
  • Royal Baker: Come in, come in, you're just in time! You can help me take the pie in to the king!

(he and Huckle Cat put the blackbird pie onto the cart, a blackbird pops up)

  • Royal Baker: Get back in there, you! You're supposed to be a surprise!

(he and Huckle Cat laugh, a blackbird gets back in the pie then Huckle and Bob take the pie in to Old King Cole)


  • Old King Cole: Oh! Ho ho hooooooo! Oh, hello again! Have you found your friend yet?
  • Huckle Cat: No, and I've looked everywhere and asked everyone in Mother Goose Land and nobody can help me.
  • Old King Cole: Have you asked Mother Goose? If anyone can help you, it's Mother Goose herself!
  • Huckle Cat: Really?
  • Old King Cole: Definitely! She knows everything that goes on in Mother Goose Land!
  • Huckle Cat: How will I find her?
  • Old King Cole: Come with me! (leads Emperor Huckle outside the castle) Whenever you need Mother Goose, all you have to do is call her! Now, repeat after me. Higgledy piggledy, pudding and pie...
  • Huckle Cat: Higgledy piggledy, pudding and pie...
  • Old King Cole: Come, Mother Goose, from out of the sky!
  • Huckle Cat: Come, Mother Goose! From out of the sky!

(Mother Goose comes out of the sky)

  • Mother Goose: Hello, sonny!

(She lands right next to Old King Cole and Huckle Cat)

  • Mother Goose: You called me?
  • Huckle Cat: Yes. I guess I did. Can you help me find my friend Lowly Worm?
  • Mother Goose: Of course, dear! We'll look for him together! Hop right on!

(Huckle Cat climbs on Mother Goose's back and they're off)

  • Mother Goose: Hold on tight!
  • Old King Cole: Goodbye!
  • Huckle Cat: Goodbye, King Cole!

(while Mother Goose takes Huckle Cat home)

  • The cow who jumped over the moon: MoooOOOOOOoooooo!

(Huckle Cat gasps, Mother Goose laughs)

  • Huckle Cat: Wow! It's the cow who jumped over the moon!
  • Mother Goose: My, my! That was a highest jump yet!
  • Huckle Cat: Look! There's Wee Willie Winkie!
  • Mother Goose: All the children are in bed! He should be in bed, too!
  • Huckle Cat: And there's Little Boy Blue! He finally woke up.
  • Mother Goose: Now is the time he should be sleeping!
  • Huckle Cat: Look! The three little kittens! Oh, no. They lost their mittens again.
  • Mother Goose: I'm sure they'll find them! They always do! And there's Mary's little lamb... fast asleep.
  • Huckle Cat: But where's Lowly?
  • Mother Goose: There he is! There's Lowly!
  • Huckle Cat: Where is he? Where's Lowly? Where's Lowly?

(scene ripples to Huckle himself back in his bed at Huckle's house)

  • Huckle Cat: Where's Lowly?
  • Mother Cat: He's right here, Huckle. We found him. He's been in the house all along.
  • Huckle Cat: Thanks, Mother Goose. I mean, Mom.

(Lowly (all covered with flour) arrives at Huckle's bedroom with the surprise pie)

  • Father Cat: Lowly has been making you a surprise pie.
  • Huckle Cat: Wow! Thanks, Lowly!

(Lowly dusts off the flour and gives the surprise pie to Mother Cat)

  • Mother Cat: (puts the surprise pie on the window) We'll put it here tonight and we'll all have a piece tomorrow.
  • Father Cat: (kisses Huckle good night) Good night, Huckle. Sweet dreams. (tucks Huckle in bed)
  • Huckle Cat: Good night, Daddy. (then closes his eyes)

(Lowly Worm closes his eyes too with his leg out of the bed. Mother Cat tucks him in bed and takes his hat off. Then she sings a lullaby.)

  • Mother Cat: ♪ Sleep, baby, sleep. Thy father guards the sheep. ♪

(Father Cat join in too.)

  • Mother and Father Cat: ♪ Thy mother shakes the dream land tree. And from it fall sweet dreams for thee. Sleep, baby, sleep. Sleep, baby, sleep. ♪

(During the last four lines of the lullaby, we pan to the left to the bedroom window with the surprise pie and fade to the outside of the bedroom window of Huckle's house as the blackbirds fly out of the pie. Then we fade to and pan above the entire Busytown at night seen on birds-eye view to the stars in the sky. Then, they form into the words "THE END".)

  • Narrator: The end.

(The screen fades to black, ending the video with the credits, then the Jumbo Pictures and Random House Home Video logos and finally the copyright.)
