“I can’t believe Professor Plumbottom blocked my request to fund this rescue operation!” Pembleton shouted across Lionheart’s large oak desk in the Animal Adventurers Society presidential office. Ducky just sat quietly in a plump chair munching on some delicious cookies.

Lionheart, a wise old tortoise and president of the AAS, stroked his long white beard quietly waiting for Pembleton to calm down. Once Pembleton was between breaths, Lionheart quickly interrupted, “How about having a homemade cookie? They’ll help cool you down.”, and he shoved a cookie in Pembleton’s mouth before he could object. Then Lionheart explained, “If it were up to me, you know I would approve this operation, but I simply don’t have the authority to overrule our senior members. I’m sorry, but my hands are tied.”

“It’s not about the money. I’ll fund the entire expedition myself if I have too. I’m just disappointed that the AAS would turn its back on animals in need.” Pembleton explained, a little more calm after munching another cookie. Then he turned to Ducky and said, “Let’s get going. We have a long way to go.”

“One more thing,” Lionheart said as they were in the doorway.

“What is it?” Pembleton asked.

“Good luck and be careful.”

A Ducky Thanksgiving Story (2012)

Morning of the Thanksgiving Celebration

Wake up! Wake up!

Thanksgiving morning, Pembleton and Blizzard got up early and woke up Ducky and Ted (who were still snoozing at 8:30am).

Cool Costumes!

After Ducky and Ted got their costumes on, it was time for them to head to school.

“To give thanks.”

At school they learned about Thanksgiving and why they celebrate it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Finally, they celebrated the holiday with a big feast and plenty of pie.

Ducky and the gang wish you a wonderful and happy thanksgiving. They also wanted everyone to know how thankful they are for all of their great fans.

“Oh no! What are we going to do now?” Ducky cried as he shook the bamboo bars of the cage. “We need to get home before dinner time!”

“Calm down Ducky,” said Ted. “Blizzard and I know what to do.”

Ted and Blizzard were small enough to slip through the bars. They walked over to a nearby palm where a pile of pirate swords laid. Together they dragged one over to Pembleton, who used the sword to break free from the cage.

“Quick, we need to get out of here,” Pembleton said. “But how will we escape when our boat is stuck?”

“Don’t worry, I got a plan!” Ducky said. As they reached the beach Ducky put his wings in his beak and whistled as loud as he could. Within minutes, the pod of dolphins from earlier in the day appeared. They hopped on to their backs and headed back to safety just in time.

When they looked back, Captain One Mitten was on the beach waving his sword. “Arrr… No body steals the treasure of Captain One Mitten!”

As soon as they made it back to port, they notified the authorities about the pirates. Soon after the police arrested the cat pirates and were able to give back the treasures stolen from a local museum, including the treasure the gang escaped with. The police were also able to tow the USS DtPb back to port.

Once Ducky and the gang got back home they were ready for a snack and a nap. They had had enough adventure for one day.

Until next time.

Pembleton finally agreed to let Ducky strap on his skis and hop out into the water. Ducky is a very good swimmer. For some reason floating comes naturally to his round body. Ted and Blizzard hooked up the cord so that Ducky could hold on as the boat cruised through the water.

Shortly after Pembleton pushed the throttle forward a pod of dolphins joined Ducky as he road the waves. Ted and Blizzard were bouncing up and down waving to the dolphins. Then the dolphins started jumping out of the water and waving their flippers back at the little guys. One dolphin even did a flip out of the water.

When Ducky road over an especially large wave he sailed clear out of the water. The next time a wave came he headed straight for it on purpose. Ducky kept trying to go higher and higher until at one point a splashed out of control losing the cord attached to the boat. When Pembleton turned the boat around to check on him, Ducky came up spitting out water and laughing. The dolphins even helped Ducky get back on to the boat.

Next on their agenda, Ducky, Pembleton, and the little guys needed to find a small island to have a picnic on.

Part 1 Ducky’s Mediterranean Cruise

Late last night Ted and Blizzard woke up Ducky and Pembleton. They couldn’t sleep because they were hearing scary noises coming from the kitchen. Ducky and Pembleton gave Ted and Blizzard a drink of water and told them that the noise was probably just their imagination. They told Ted and Blizzard to try to go back to sleep.

While Ducky was trying to go back to bed, he suddenly became aware of strange crunching noises in the kitchen. Pembleton heard the noise too. Ted and Blizzard were too scared to move, so it was up to Ducky and Pembleton to find out what was going on.

They turned on the light in the kitchen and opened the cabinets. Right under the kitchen sink, they were surprised to find Rumplestiltskin.

“Whoa! How did you get all the way to Israel?”, Ducky asked. Rumplestiltskin explained that all “mice” know about a transatlantic sewer pipe that they can use to travel around the world. Rumplestiltskin had missed Ducky in Texas and caught a whiff of his scent and followed his nose right to Ducky’s new home in Israel.

Pembleton was a little annoyed that Rumplestiltskin came without even warning them, but Ducky was so happy to see his old friend that Pembleton tolerated the visit.
