About this item

Rootie and company begin this show with a sailing theme and corresponding song. Skipper Todd leads the group to a Silvercup bread sponsorship, an anticlimactic ending to the sailing bit. Afterwards, Rootie instructs the group to clean up for the coming of Cousin Sparky, the fire sniffing dog. Cousin Sparky makes the set fire safe while Big Todd and Rootie inform the audience on basic fire safety. While this happens, Poison Zanzibou tries taking the Magic Kazootie while Rootie is distracted with fire safety.
