Box #3: TASK COMPLETION
A large cat gets overheated and unzips his jackets zipper.
Noise frightens a mouse that runs across a ramp
Unfortunately, the mouse runs off into a net.
This net causes a basket of cheese to fall.
Falling pieces of cheese set off an air powered rocket.
Then the rocket crashes into a shelf causing a slinky to fall.
The over shot of the rocket turns off the noisy air pump.
The slinky drops onto a teeter totter.
A mouse enjoying the day on the teeter totter is flipped up
a little too close for comfort to several mouse traps.
The mouse movement sets off all of the mouse traps.
The last trap hits a steel ball that rolls into a tube.
Swiftly a steel ball falls down the tube onto an umbrella.
This causes the umbrella to be released, pushing a pool ball.
The pool ball rolls into yet another mouse trap.
The mouse trap causes a barbell to fall.
With this final action, the barbell pulls the now cooled off cat’s zipper back up.
