It's All Good
Well? What flavors?
Chocolate coconut for me!
It's good, eh?
Yeah, but you gotta lick fast 'cause it's running everywhere.
Where are we going, grandpa?
To the report to say hello to JUGGLE.
Look at the boats, RAMONO!
There's lots of seagulls!
When it low tide, the boats are way down at bottom of the quay.
How do you get down?
HAHA! Did you see that guy? He got a big glop of bird poop on his hat!
That's not bird poop, doofus! That's your ice cream!
Oh, yikes! Dang!
HEY, YOU KIDS!
Let's get out of here!
Will you ask your grandpa to buy me another cone?
No. You should've paid attention.
But, you're the one who told me to lean over!
Gimme some of yours.
Not too much, eh?
Are you coming, kids?
HI, HOOFER! How's It chirping?
Yes. I'm touching it up.
Do you remember ARIOL my grandson? He came with a buddy this year.
Wolf cub! Growing like weeds!
I'll give you my wrist, eh? I have paint all over my fingers.
Hello, Mister JUGGLE.
Can we go in your boat?
As much as you like.
Finish your ice cream first, you scamps!
They'll get chocolate stuck all over everything.
Bah! I'm repainting the hull. No worries up there.
Hey, RAMONO! You're a pirate. I'm THUNDER HORSE, and we're attacking Emperor MORODAN's ship!
Wait. I'm finishing my cone.
PREPARE TO BOARD!
Tonight, we'll set your plaaace — Tonight, we'll set your place on fiiire!
There are guards, but I throw them in the water! POW! SPLASH!
And the sharks eat 'em!
It's too bad we're not on the real water.
We don't care, we act like we are. GIVE UP, MORODAN! TCHAK! TCHING!
While you're fighting with MORODAN, I'll steer the ship.
NO WAY! I'm steering!
I called it first!
Yes, but Mister JUGGLE is my grandpa's friend, so I'll steer first.
Let go of that wheel!
You let it go!
LOOK OUT! WE'RE HEADING TOWARDS THE ROCKS!
Are your two youngsters good kids?
A little lively, but they're fine.
