SCENE 1 Lionel and Leona are being noisy in the book "The admiral's Adventure" so Click drags and drops Theo in the book to read a story of a Russian Folk Tale called "It Could Be Worse" and the story tells about how life could be worse in a crowded house featuring a sad dad (Bruno Kirby). The dad gets advice from a woman (Denny Dillon) who tells him to take the chickens out of his house. Once this happens, he is no longer sad, but glad!
