Hello. I'm Elliot Ness, the resident Loch Ness monster who lives in the town fountain. I got lost and separated from my parents a long, long, time ago. I swam around until I happened to end up in Inspiria. I enjoy poetry, and I'm busy compiling a list of words the rhyme so I can write really nice poetry. Would you happen to know of any words that rhyme with "monster" or "purple"? Since I'm limited in my ability to get around, I always love to have people stop by. I'm a terrible gossip, and because I only catch fragments of conversations, I tend to mess up the facts.
What? Oh, hello. I'm Madeline T. Squirrel. The "T" is for teacher. I have a Ph.D. diploma around here somewhere. I enjoy making music with whatever is handy, including my kazooziewompus. It's something I invented by myself. I love to invent things . . . and . . . uh . . . what was I saying? Oh dear, I do get distracted easily. As I was saying, sometimes, when I'm not around, others accidentally use my machines and cause unintended mischief. However, it always seems to work out OK in the end.
May I have your attention please? I said, MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE? As the "acting" Mayor of Inspiria, I welcome you and hope you enjoy the adventures of Pixel and Chip, as well as my speeches, which I deliver from the podium that follows me around. Actually, my name is Ham A. Lot, and I'm an aspiring actor. Sometimes I act like I'm the mayor of Inspiria, and you've seen my photo for that role. Sometimes I act like I'm a cowboy or a policeman or a wild game hunter or a soldier or . . . , well, you get the picture. I just use my imagination, and you can do the same.
I am Remy Brandt. I have been named after the famous painter Rembrandt. I love to draw and paint and want to be as good as my namesake. I've been here for about 400 years but, after the first 100, I stopped counting. Do you know that I only need three colors of paint on my palette, Red, Yellow, and Blue? That is correct. With those three colors I can make all of the other colors. Allow me to elucidate: Red + Yellow = Orange; Yellow + Blue = Green; Blue + Red = Purple (or Violet if you prefer). Now, you might ask, "Aren't While and Black colors?" In the Art world, White is the absence of all color, and Black is a combination of all colors. So, White and Black are used for Values, and are used to make the Colors either brighter or darker.
Oh dear. Oh my. I didn't expect visitors. Oh, oh, are my feathers neat? I wasn't done preening when you showed up. I am La Bella Diva, and if you must know, I perform frequently in the Oak Tree Theater and share my beautiful operatic singing voice with everyone in Inspiria. Butch is my dear, dear friend, and he loves listening to my singing, even though it makes his feet dance. By the way, do you think I'm beautiful?
Hi dere. I'm Butch F. Snugglesworth. I grew up in a tough neighborhood in Brooklyn, NY. My parents named me Fluffy. Youse can imagine da razzin' I took bein' called Fluffy Snugglesworth. Dats why I took on da moniker of Butch. I grew up to be pretty big 'n strong. Bigger 'n stronger den da udder rabbits I hung out wid, cuz I ate lots of veggies, while dey pigged out on junk food and colas. Now dat I'm livin' in Inspiria, I grow all kinds of veggies, and my favorite is broccoli. Ders one ting 'bout me dats a little embarrassin'. When my big ears hear music, my big feet start to dance. Now, don't get me wrong. I love ta dance, and show others how ta dance. I just prefer ta dance to music of my choosin', and at a time of my choosin'.
Hi. I'm Chip, I'm six years old, and I'm Pixel's next door neighbor. I like Pixel, but she's more adventurous than I am. I prefer to read about adventures in books. The adventures in books are more exciting 'cuz they let me use my imagination. TV doesn't.
Sometimes, either me or Pixel have some sort of a problem, like me wanting to keep a lost puppy and my mom telling me it's too much responsibility. When problems come up, Pixel and me open the Magic Paint Box and use our imagination to go into Inspiria. Our friends there always seem to be able to help.
Hello. I'm Pixel and I'm six years old. I found this neat old box in grandpa's shed. I didn't realize it was the MAGIC PAINT BOX. When Chip comes over and we want to go to Inspiria, we open the paint box. On the inside of the lid it says, "Use your imagination". When we do, my backyard becomes Inspiria. The birdbath becomes the town fountain, the row of hedges becomes the town, and the old tree becomes the Oak Tree Theater and the home of La Bella Diva and Madeline T. Squirrel. How about coming along with me and Chip when we have our adventures. We always have lots of fun, and even learn really neat stuff.
