Storyboard Text

  • Rip Van Winkle was an amiable and "Simple good-natured man; moreover, he was a kind neighbor." 
  • Thanks for fixing that, Rip!
  • He was, however, a "henpecked husband."
  • Why aren't you doing your work? You do everyone elses but never your own! Are you even listening?
  • One day after Dame Van Winkle yelled at him, he decided to "Take gun in hand and stroll to the woods."
  • His trusty companion, Wolf
  • On his way down from the Kaatskill mountains, he hears his name being called. He meets a short man in a jerkin or a Dutch sleeveless jacket who introduces him to "A company of odd-looking personages playing nine-pin."
  • After drinking from a flagon that the strange men had brought, he fell asleep. He woke up and wandered back into town,  wondering "What excuse shall [he] make?"
  • When he returns to town, he discovers that he was asleep for 20 years, that his wife is dead and his children grown, and that a new country rules the colony.
  • He finds out that he became something of a folk tale, and is welcomed back. He moves in with his daughter and resumes his old habits.
  • General George Washington
