Spunky the Clown
(flannel script)
Spunky had a hat, and that hat was RED,

"This Crocodile looks great in green! That's the best color I've ever seen!"

Where Has My Hat Gone?
(Tune of “Where Has My Little Dog Gone?”)
Oh where, oh where has my red hat gone?
Oh where, oh where can it be?
I’ve looked up high and I’ve looked down low.
Did someone hide it from me?
