There's a Dinosaur in the Closet
Forbidden to have a pet, Darryl smuggles a "pet" rock into his cluttered room. Then the rock hatches into a tiny dinosaur with an incredible appetite. At it devours all of Darryl's possessions, it begins to grow. Suddenly the "no problem" pet becomes a huge headache. Darryl's attempts to train his unruly pet while keeping it hidden become increasingly frantic as the dinosaur grows ever larger.
"Those who love hand puppetry always look forward to the next show by Luman Coad because nobody does it better."
