Brandon- Tommy the robot helps Marty the dinosaur with the big stuff around the factory. He also likes a good joke every now and then.
Sheala- Zoe the platypus is the watcher of the water. The factory is surrounded by lakes and streams and Zoe heads up the Platypus Patrol who keeps the water safe for the PlaidWorks submarine network. Here we see her giving the tail wave signal for All Is Well.
Brandon-Nick was always talking about weird sports, stuff like frisbee volleyball, basket baseball and of course, werewolf sprockets. Wanda never knew why he talked to her about this stuff, she didn’t even like real sports. There were circuit boards to build, the ‘bots always needed more boards.
Sheala- here we see Binky (pic. with George, Clyde and Sarah). One of the koala gardeners. They keep up the grounds and help grow the factory’s produce.
Sheala: Burt the Honey badger has a gruff exterior. And some sharp claws reserved for those named Poo. But he’s also the master of the shipping department. He’s very organized and gets things out on time!
Brandon: Francis the Orangutan and Martha the Owl spend a lot of time (maybe too much) arguing and debating in one of the side rooms.
Brandon-This is Marty, the dinosaur mechanic. With his custom designed extenders and their interchangeable heads, there’s nothing he can’t move or fix in the factory. Except the really small stuff, that’s for the mice.
Sheala- Here’s Sergeant Moe. He’s Jeri’s number one. He’s is charge of the new recruits. This is day one of wing camp, where monkeys decide if they are cut out to be the Winged Monkey Patrol.
SHEALA: Meet AHH (Automated Hoomanoid Helper). The PlaidWorkers have developed many bots to help. They feel that helpful bots free up Workers to relax, think more abstract and creative AND make tasks easier.
BRANDON: …and see the factory at work
Sheala- Roscoe the Ring-tailed lemur one of the tunnel engineers. The factory engineer team is pretty extensive and there’s lots of lemurs. They are smart and have great dexterity! Today Roscoe is checking in on the new construction of Tunnel 36c.
Brandon-The lobby is oddly empty. There’s just a long desk, a small bear, a strange piece of art, an a weird door guarded by cockatiel named TD. The bear buzzes you in, while TD makes sure you don’t do anything bad strange. Don’t cross TD, ok? Just lift the velvet rope and go through the door.
Brandon- Oh sorry, forgot to mention Ollie the troll. He lives out by the bridge on the road to the factory. But he does troll badly, which is good! Instead of living under the bridge, he lives above it, in the trees. He smiles a lot and waves as the hoomans go by. He’s not sure what he’s supposed to do with the big club, but he’s seen other trolls with them, so figures he should have one too. Surely one day, it’s use and importance will be made clear! In the meantime, it’s resemblance to a carrot is soothing, because he loves carrots. What? He’s a troll, of course he’s monstrous in some way!
Sheala- this is Jim the Jerboa. He’s the top communications tech. He also likes to tinker around with drones and robots.
Sheala: Kiki the Kitten is the factory mascot. as a cute adorable kitten, she wanders around meowing and cheering folks up. She’s very good at it.
Brandon: You must be careful when approaching the Factory. Grumpy sheep with wooly mohawks roam the grounds, eating grass and looking for unauthorized hoomans or Poo minions. Behind the factory is a small lake, because who doesn’t like fresh water? Dr. Poo, that’s who! He’s forever trying to foul up the water with garlic flavored soda, broccoli ice cream and onion milk. The sheep help keep him and his minions at baaaaaay!
We join War turtle in his office and overhear this snippet of conversation:
“War Turtle approves of this, but not of Raspberry sherbet!”
Which is then followed by this:
you hear a dim flapping of wings…
:an envelope is dropped on your desk:
“Who dares to DROP an envelope on the Great War Turtle’s magnificient desk?!”
Hello Sir! In an effort to continue the forward scheduling of Daily Art Topics, please expect discussion shortly…Regards- secretary mouse to Arts and Culture Badger
“War Turtle expects nothing except the glory of combat in the office cafeteria!”
Somehow the new topic became Plaidworks characters, those wonderful creatures that work in the imagination factory int he mountains. War Turtle ponders this as he reminisces on recent portraits of himself.
Brandon: Down in the valley, where the city rests and the hoomans do whatever it is they do, the pigs run a tour service of the PlaidWorks factory. It’s always a bit messy waiting for the hoomans to get aboard, but pigs love the change of pace and seeing people in their natural habitat. And they make very good iced tea!
Sheala: Weavil the Rat is a spy of Doctor Poo. He thinks he’s cleverly disguised but everyone in the Plaidworks factory knows. They treat him like he belongs so one day he might decide he likes Plaidworks better…
