Storyboard Text

  • When the baby was born, everyone thought that he was going to die.
  • However he did not, and they decided to name the baby Doodle because he crawled backwards like a doodlebug.
  • "We should name him Doodle!"
  • Doodle was very attached to his brother. He wanted to go everywhere with him. Because Doodle could still not walk, the brother had to drag Doodle around in a cart everywhere.
  • “ If I so as picked up my hat he would start crying to go with me…”
  • One day in Old Woman Swamp, Doodle's brother decided to teach him how to walk, as he did not want a disabled brother.
  • Eventually, after a lot of training, he could finally walk and perform many other tasks as well.
  • Sitting at lunch, the family suddenly heard a loud croaking noise. It was coming from a fatigued Scarlet Ibis. The bird fell through the bleeding tree and lay still. At this moment, Doodle decided to bury the bird.
  • That same day the two boys went down to Horseshoe Landing for a swimming lesson. However, a terrible thunderstorm started, and the two boys ran for their lives.
  • "RUN!"
  • Doodle's brother, being faster, left the boy behind. When the brother came back for Doodle, he found the boy sitting dead with blood covering his mouth, neck, and chest. Doodle had died.
  • "DOODLE!"
