Spiderman, Doc Oc. and Iced cream

Son: Daddy, I want you to tell me about Spiderman and Doctor Oc.

Daddy: Spiderman and Doctor Octopus?

Son: No, Doctor Oc.

Daddy: Spiderman and Doc. Oc., okay...

Once upon a time, Spiderman was swinging through the city. He was shooting webs and swinging all around and having lots of fun. All of a sudden, his spider sense started tingling and he knew something dangerous was about to happen. He jumped out of the way just in time, because a big mailbox was flying through the air at him. He shot a web at the mailbox and caught it, then he set it down on the ground - which made the mailman who was trying to collect letters from the mailbox very happy.

Spiderman looked all around to see who threw the mailbox, but he couldn't see anyone. Spiderman decided to keep swinging. Pretty soon, he felt his spider sense tingling again. He jumped out of the way just in time, because hot dog stand was flying through the air at him. He shot a web at the hot dog stand and set it down on the ground - which made the Peruvian hot dog vendor who was trying to sell hot dogs very happy.

Once again, Spiderman looked around to see who trew the hot dog stand at him, but he didn't see anybody. He decided to keep swinging some more. Pretty soon, his spider sense was tingling again! He jumped out of the way just in time, because a big old luxury car was flying through the air at him. He shot a web at the car and set it down carefully on the ground - which made the old ladies who were riding in the big old luxury car very happy.

Spiderman quickly looked to see who threw the car, and there was Doctor Octopus.

Son: No, Doctor Oc.

Daddy: Right, Doctor Oc.

Doctor Oc. was coming coming at Spiderman with his shiny tentacles waving around. He was very angry.

Spiderman said, "Doctor Oc., have you been throwing things at me all day?"

Doctor Oc. said, "Yes I have, Spiderman. I'm angry at you!"

"Why are you angry at me?" Spiderman asked.

"Because, I'm jealous!" said Doctor Oc.

"Why would you be jealous?" asked Spiderman.

"Because, I saw you eating an iced cream cone earlier and I wanted some, but you didn't share." said Doctor Oc.

"Oh, I'm sorry" said Spiderman. "I didn't know you wanted some iced cream earlier. You didn't say anything about it."

"Well I did." said Doctor Oc. "But now it's all gone!"

"No it's not," said Spiderman. "There's lots more. Come on, let's go get some."

So Spiderman took Doctor Oc. to the iced cream vendor on 5th Avenue and bought him a big iced cream cone.

"Wow, thanks Spiderman." said Doctor Oc. "Aren't you going to have some?"

"No," said Spiderman. "I had too much earlier, and now I feel all bloated and gassy."

So Spiderman left to go find a bathroom and Doctor Oc. enjoyed his big iced cream cone while he walked around central park.

The End.

Superman's Birthday Party

Son: Daddy, can you tell me a story about Superman?

Daddy: Okay...

Once upon a time, Superman was having a birthday party. Batman and Robin were there, and Wonder Woman was there, and Flash was there and so was Green Lantern. After they had ice cream and cake, they all sat down to give Superman his presents. Batman and Robin went first.

"This present is from both of us." said Robin. "And don't use your x-ray vision to cheat and see what's inside."

"Okay, I won't." said Superman as he started opening the present. "Oh, wow. It's a jetpack. Hmmm, too bad I can already fly, so I guess I don't need this."

Batman and Robin looked grumpily at each other. Wonder Woman was next to give Superman a present.

Superman opened up the frilly, colorfully wrapped present that Wonder Woman gave him and said, "Wow, a pair of high-powered binoculars!"

Son: No, binoculators.

Daddy: Hmm?

Son: They're called binoculators.

Daddy: Oh.

Superman said, "Wow, a pair of high-powered binoculators. Ohhhhh, too bad I can already see far away with my super-seeing, so I guess I don't need these."

Wonder Woman sighed and gave a grumpy look to Batman and Robin. Flash went next giving Superman a birthday present.

Superman opened up the very messily wrapped present, saying "Flash, you didn't spend much time wrapping this did you?"

"It only took me 1.03 seconds" said Flash. "A new record!"

When Superman saw what was under the wrapping paper, he said "Wow, a fork-lift. Oh, but I'm super strong, so I guess I won't really need this either."

Flash made a grumpy face at Batman and Robin, and Wonder Woman. Green Lantern was next to give a present to Superman.

Superman opened the glowing green wrapping paper that was covering the box. "Oh, wow." said Superman, "It's a blowtorch! Hmm, but I do have super heat-vision, don't I? so I guess I don't really have a use for this."

Green Lantern also made a grumpy face, and Wonder Woman said "Oh, Superman. Don't you understand that that's the point of all of these presents we're giving you?"

"What do you mean?" asked Superman.

"Batman and Robin know that you can fly, but they still got you a jetpack. I know that you can see far away, but I still got you a pair of binoculars."

Son: BinocuLATORS

Daddy: ...

"...binoculators. And Flash knows that you're super-strong, but he still got you a fork-lift, and even though Green Lantern knows you have super heat-vision, he got you a blowtorch."

"I still don't understand." said Superman, "If you all know I don't need these things, then why did you get them for me?"

"To say 'thank you' Superman" said Green Lantern. "You do so many great things for the people of this city, and of the whole world, with all your great super powers. None of us can do all the good things you do, even though we try to help. There's only one Superman, and we just wouldn't be the Super Friends without you."

"So," said Wonder Woman, "Thanks for being Superman, and Happy Birthday!"

"Ohh, you guys are the best Super Friends a Kryptonian could have!" said Superman. And he picked them all up and hugged them.

"'re hurting us Superman." squeaked Robin.

"Oh, sorry." said Superman. And he put them all back down.

The End.

The Justice League and the Ninja Turtles

Son: Daddy, can you tell me about Batman and Superman and Robin and the Red Ninja Turtle and the Orange Ninja Turtle?

Daddy: Okay...

Once upon a time, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Robin, Aquaman and Flash were all having dinner at the hall of justice.

Batman said, "Excuse me, Aquaman, would you please pass the water - no seaweed please."

"Sure." said Aquaman, and he passed the water.

Wonder Woman said, "Robin, could you pass the peas please?"

"What did you say?" said Robin.

"I said pass the peas, please." Wonder Woman repeated.

"Sorry, one more time?" said Robin.

"Pass the peas. Pass the peas. Pass the peas, uh-like we used to say. Huh!" said Wonder Woman.

"Oh, right." Said Robin as he passed the peas.

Superman asked "Excuse me Flash, could you pass the salad dr... Whoah! Thanks Flash."

"No problem." said Flash.

All of a sudden, "Boom, Boom, Boom!" there was a knock at the door. The super friends all looked at each other and wondered who could be interrupting their dinner.

"It's two Ninja Turtles." said Superman, who was using his x-ray vision to see through the door. "I'll go see what they wa... Whoah! Okay, Flash. Fine, you can..."

"Howdy, what can I do for you?" Flash said as he opened the door.

It was Raphael and Michaelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Son: No, the Red Ninja Turtle and the Orange Ninja Turtle!

Daddy: Right.

It was the Red Ninja Turtle and the Orange Ninja Turtle. They said, "Hi, we need your help."

"What seems to be the problem?" Superman asked as he flew over to the door.

Son: With his heat vision!

Daddy: ...Superman asked as he flew over to the door, blasting holes in the walls with his heat vision.

The Red Turtle said, "Come with us, we'll show what we need when we get there."

So the Ninja Turtles took the Super friends down the street to a manhole cover on the ground. "We live down there." Said the Orange Ninja Turtle, "But we can't get home because we can't open it up. And I really have to use the bathroom!"

Batman and Robin tried using their bat-a-rangs to pry it open to no avail. Aquaman tried commanding the sea to splash it open, but they were in the middle of the city. Wonder Woman threw her lasso around it, to make it tell the truth, but it was a manhole cover and it didn't know how to talk. Flash ran in circles around it to created a vortex that might suction it up, but that didn't work either. Finally, Superman said, "This looks like a job for Superman!" and he blasted it with his heat vision until it melted away, opening up the hole to the Ninja Turtles home.

"Yay!" said the Ninja Turtles. And the looked down into the hole. They saw the blue Ninja Turtle and the Purple Ninja Turtle down in the hole.

The Blue Ninja Turtle said, "Aww, you got it open!"

And the Purple Ninja Turtle said, "We were playing a trick on you!"

"That wasn't very nice." said the Red Ninja Turtle. "Don't you know Michaelangelo has to go potty?!"

"Sorry." said the Purple and Blue Ninja Turtles. And Michaelangelo went down the hole to their home to go potty.

The End.

Batman and Robin and the Yucky Yucky Mud Pit

Daddy: What story do you want to hear tonight?

Son: I want Batman and Robin and the yucky yucky mud pit.

Daddy: Okay...

Once upon a time, there was a yucky yucky mud pit. All of the people stayed far away from the yucky mud pit because they didn't want to fall in and get stuck. But one day, a little boy was playing with his dog and throwing a ball around for the dog to chase after. The boy threw the ball a little bit too far and when the dog jumped to get it, he fell in to the yucky yucky mud pit.

The little boy said, "Oh no, my doggy fell in to the yucky mud! Somebody help!"

Then Batman and Robin came and said, "I think we can help."

Batman shouted down to the dog, "Hey little dog, how did you fall in there?"

The dog said, "Aaarrrraarraaarrrhhh." Which is doggy talk for, "I can't understand you."

Batman said, "Of course, this dog doesn't speak English." Then Batman threw a rope down to the dog and said, "Here dog, grab on to this."

And the dog said, "Aaarrrraarraaarrroooohhh." Which is doggy talk for, "I still can't understand you. What is that for?"

Batman said, "Ah, yes, I almost forgot. This dog has no hands." Then Batman made a lasso and tried to throw it around the dogs tail, but his tail was slippery with mud.

Robin said, "Holy canine conundrum, Batman! How are we going to get this dog out of the mud?"

"I've got it." said Batman. "Quickly Robin, get me the biggest dog biscuit you can find!"

So Robin got a really big doggy biscuit, like Batman asked, and Batman tied a rope around it and threw it to the dog. The Dog said, ""Aaarrrrooorrooorrraaarrrhhh." Which is doggy talk for "Oooh, yummy! I'll have a bite of that!" And he bit down hard on the big doggy biscuit. Batman and Robin pulled and pulled and pulled until the dog and the doggy biscuit came out of the mud safe and sound.

"Yaayyy!" said the little boy, "You saved my dog. Thanks Batman and Robin!"

"Rraaarrraaarrrooouugh!" said the dog. Which is doggy talk for "Thanks for the yummy dog biscuit, whoever you are." Then the dog shook off all the yucky yucky mud on to Batman and Robin and the little boy.

Batman and Robin and the little boy all laughed.

The End.
