Storyboard Text

  • Once upon a time, nearly 65 million years ago, two young Possums were chatting it up on the border of North and South America
  • Hey, Jeff!
  • Hey, Jane! How YOU doin'?
  • The two land masses split and the two lovers were separated
  • Jeff went on a journey to Antarctica to look for Jane, this journey would lead him to a very strange land...
  • Oh no! The land... it's drifting away!
  • I'll return one day and we'll live happily ever after!
  • Welcome to Australia!
  • As he searched and failed, he gave his children the same directive: find Jane's daughters and spread our genes.
  • Now leaving Antarctica
  • Good thing there was a land bridge from Antarctica to Australia. I should start looking for Jane, she'll be worried sick!
  • Australian Airlines flight 7 here, we have got the male. Prepare the female from the Virginia Zoo.
  • After 65 million years of trying and failing, Jeff's great, great, great, etc. grandson was picked up by a traveller.
  • Oh man! I hope her great great great, etc. granddaughter is as hot as they said she'll be!
  • This relationship will give my potential offspring horrible chances at surviving the winter!
  • When they finally met, they realized that they had evolved differently. She was a white Virginia Opossum and he was a grey Brushtail Possum.
  • Oh no, she looks... uh, different than I expected.
  • Jane Jr. went on to bare the children of another Virginia Opossum. Jeff Jr. later died, because he was not suited for the habitat. At the end of the day, they all lived happily ever after... except Jeff Jr.
