SCENE 1 Lionel and Leona are being noisy in the book "The Admiral's Adventure" so Click drags and drops Theo in the book to read a Russian Folk Tale called "It Could Be Worse". The story tells about a crowded house featuring a dad (Bruno Kirby) who is very sad because the place is crowded with chickens. The dad gets advice from a woman (Denny Dillon) who tells him to take the chickens out of his house. Once this happens, he is no longer sad, but glad!
