GROWLER RADIO 22 - The Noise Thief

When technicians at the Oldold Institute opened the vessel containing the mineral sample from the Forbidden Zone, they were unable to talk or call for help. Just prior to the incident, the Deck Of Antiquity was seen nearby. Could it have been working with the Noise Thief toward some mutual objective

The kids get tricked by a master of deception and experience the amazing creature that grazes on sound energy. Along the way they encounter Grandpa Huhu, who's trying to get a handle on a potentially bad problem. And then there's Dr. Growler, who never makes life easy

Concept: Sound as a form of life sustaining energy.




GRIST: What Is Fred's Deal with Bob?

by QB Snifs

"To Bob Sakayama:

When I signed on to do these tapes, I intended to stay out of the politics of the production company, but things have changed.
As I understood it, the original plan was to make high end audio programs for kids, marketed with a solid price advantage.
I agree with that. That's smart.
But now, out of nowhere, you're offering it for NOTHING and all for what?
You don't need more money? So you're taking it from ME?
Shame on you! I bet you don't print this."

Signed, Growler Fred.

"Dear Growler Fred:

You may have forgotten that to cover your recent contract demands we offered to pay YOU with certain unique items from the Moon At Midnight catalogue!
Of course, we think you're great and deserve every item.
Knock'em dead, Fred."

Signed, Bob Sakayama, producer, THE GROWLER TAPES.

"To Bob:

Don't sweet talk me! And don't blame me for your own lack of greediness!
Of course I'm great! But I don't like how you say it just to trick me into being friendly!
And I don't ever want to see another reference to 'knock'em dead, Fred.' Got it?"

Signed, Fred





Fact: An encrusted friend is a powerful ally.

No one is certain where it came from, and very little about it is understood. We know it precedes our ancestor Oldold, because he mentions it in his writings as an object of admiration.

We speak of the Deck Of Antiquity.
Classified as an unreliable communicator, this ancient deceptor has thrived by helping other encrustations. It usually appears to be a set of playing cards, with the word, "Antiquity" in hieroglyphs on the backs.

It then may change for depending on the needs of the Deck, which is known for brilliant deceptions.

The cards reportedly have transformed into counterfeit postcards, signs, instructions, money, maps, pages in books, flash cards, and has been the cause of many disputes in Old Maid.


It always operates in close proximity to a host encrustation, which benefits greatly from its helpful services & tricks.
However, unless you are an encrusted form, prepare to be fooled by the incredible Deck Of Antiquity.

 And that's an amazing Huhu Fact!

GROWLER RADIO 20, Toxic Obnoxic

Dr. Growler's maniacal attempt to get rid of darkness has led him to make some compromises and take some risks. Like using an encrusted mineral he knows is dangerous. He miscalculated the consequences of failure and that increased the risks not only for the Growlers, but civility itself.

The Baby Huhu twins are missing, dangerous objects are falling from above, and night no longer is a time of darkness. The kids discover the truth about Project No Night and they want no part of it. And then there's this comic book that buts you at the center of the story, and much more.

Concepts:Consequences of experimenting with hazardous substances, altering the environment by making night as bright as day.
