Kenya the kangaroo has a problem. No matter how hard she tries, she can't jump as high as her friends. Time to see the wacky, sage Dr. Cluck, the doctor-rooster who helps animals discover everywhere the cure to whatever ails them. An upside-down tale of self discovery. Enjoy!!

If you’re in a real hurry, here is the really short version that I once made for a phone app (never materialized, though)
Kenya Crouch was a sad kangaroo.
Her friends called her the can’t garoo.
Animation – touch Kenya and she sobs.
When her friends hopped towards the sky,
Kenya would sigh.
Animation – touch her friends and they hop up and down (or shake the i-phone and they boing around).
Kenya tried all kinds of things –even a pogo stick. Nothing seemed to do the trick.
Animation – touch the pogo stick and it bounces twice and then she falls over.
So Kenya went to visit Dr. William Cluck.
“You’re in luck!” said Dr. Cluck.
Animation – touch Dr. Cluck and he says “You’re in luck”
“I know what to do
To make your dream come true.”
“Just jump up on your couch or bed,
And then try standing on your head”.
Animation: touch Dr. Cluck and he sings his rap, or says:
“Adieu, farewell to you, cockadoodledo”
Kenya wondered why the Doctor said
“Just try standing on your head”
Animation – turn the i-phone over and Kenya does a headstand on the bed.
Wow – Look what’s happening now!
Animation – rub the pouch and things fall out with a boing sound.
A hat, a bat, a bar a guitar,
And more and more and more and more!!
Animation – touch each of the items and the names are spelled. Or strum the guitar and make a sound.
Kenya felt as light as a kite.
She hopped to the floor and then out the door.
Animation – touch Kenya and she bounces out the door, boing, boing
Now she jumps so very high.
Do you want to help her try?
Animation – there is a bar or a cloud at the top of the screen and the faster you swipe her, the higher she bounces.
She can hop as high as her other friends do.
So now they call her the ‘Can garoo’.
Animation – touch Kenya and she hops high. Touch her friends and they say “Wow”.
