Old Cricket tells his missus why he can't fix the roof -- "I woke with a creak in my knee, dear wife." He tells Cousin Katydid why he can't pick berries -- "I woke with a creak in my knee and a crick in my neck." He tells Uncle Ant why he can't harvest corn -- "I woke with a creak in my knee, a crick in my neck, and a crack in my back....I'm off to see Doc Hopper." But before he gets there, Old Crow comes calling. "Caw-caw-caw," he says, hungrily. And "caw" is one C-word Old Cricket can't relish. The creators of "Sailor Moo" present a second critter comedy, full of wordplay and antic animation.
