Flying high above the city, looking for trouble and people in need of help – it is IncredaBaby! IncredaBaby has gained her incredible super-power from a pair of magic purple tights – and now IncredaBaby is using her powers to do good – and fix problems. IncredaBaby is on her nightly patrol while her parents, unaware of their daughter is a crime-fighter , sleep peacefully.
As she flies IncredaBaby hears someone crying. There down below – it is a little girl, standing in a garden.
IncredaBaby glides down and lands beside the girl. “Whatever is the matter?” asks IncredaBaby.
The girl peeks up from crying and stares at IncredaBaby. The girl looks all around the garden. “Where did you come from little baby?” says the girl.
“Up there – but that doesn’t really matter,” says IncredaBaby. “I am here to help you. Why are you crying?”
The girl’s eyes grow wide in surprise. “You talked. You actually talked. You are a baby and you just talked. That is just so incredible,” says the girl.
IncredaBaby raises an eyebrow. “Yeah – I talked. And so did you. Whoopee-do-dah. Now let’s get focused. Exactly what is the problem?”
“Oh yeah,” says the girl. “Well this is my garden, and I came out to smell the flowers. Only I can’t cause all my flowers are gone. Somebody has stolen all my beautiful blossoms.” The girl flops down and begins crying again.
“Okay Miss,” says IncredaBaby, “I’ll find out who did this.”
“You?” says the girl. “But you’re just a baby. What can you do?”
IncredaBaby smiles. “I’m not just a baby, Miss. I’m IncredaBaby, and I’ll be back with your flowers.” IncredaBaby flies away to look for clues.
Swooping low over the neighbourhood IncredaBaby can see that all the flowers are missing. Someone has taken every blooming plant.
“Hmmm that is very strange!” says IncredaBaby. “Also very sad – who could do something so mean?”
IncredaBaby circles around until she finds some flowers still in a garden. She waits. Soon she hears a buzzing noise. The buzzing gets louder as it comes closer. It is many honeybees. The bees fly to the flowers and grab the flower near the roots. Working together they pull up one flower and another, and then carry the flowers away. IncredaBaby sneaks after the buzzing flower thieves.
IncredaBaby is distracted by a shadow and the flap of a blanket below. Is someone following her?
As the bees fly along, IncredaBaby sees other bees also carrying flowers. Hundreds and hundreds of bees all stealing flowers. The bees are flying to a building on the edge of town. It was a big old warehouse with broken windows. On top is painted a large letter “B”
The bees fly inside the B-warehouse with their flowers.
IncredaBaby stops outside the B-warehouse and carefully peeks through the windows. Inside she sees some bees re-planting flowers. Other bees are collecting the nectar and pollen. They carry the nectar to a large mechanical honey-comb. This is a honey-making factory.
From behind her IncredaBaby again hears a blanket. Yes, there is someone following her. But who?
IncredaBaby moves quietly into the building. She sees lots and lots of strange machines, pumping and puffing and moving the honey from the combs, through pipes and chemicals and into jars. As she moves closer the bees buzz angrily at IncredaBaby.
And then IncredaBaby hears a familiar giggle, “ Hehee, HeHee”. And a familiar voice, “You are just in time IncredaBaby!”
Of course the letter “B” should have told her who was behind all of this. It is her arch-enemy and the constant thorn in her side. That annoying and terribly bad teenage boy from down the street.
“What are you up to this time, Doctor-B?” asks IncredaBaby.
“Why IncredaBaby I have created super-goopy-honey – I call it super-B-goo” says Doctor-B. “It is pretty marvelous - if I do say so myself. All that pumping and chemical fiddle-faddle – and well here let me to show you how it works.”
Knowing she has only one chance IncredaBaby attempts to use her super-stinky baby power, but she is too slow. Doctor-B glops IncredaBaby with the super-B-goo . IncredaBaby is stuck in the sticky mess and she is unable to move.
“Oh my you seem stuck – so what are you going to do now IncredaBaby?” laughs Doctor-B. “Oh my – hah-ha – finally I win. There is nobody that can stop me now. Using my Bee-O-matic controller I will make the bees obey my every command. Now they will fly out and super-B-goo everyone in the city. And then I can do whatever I want, whenever I want. It will be like summer vacation all the time! That is until I decide to remove the super-B-goo with this goo-B-gone spray.”
“You won’t get away with this Doctor-B,” says IncredaBaby.
“Oh but I already have – because there is nobody left to stop me,” says Doctor-B. “And why are you smiling like that?”
“Guess,” says IncredaBaby.
“And then guess again, Doctor-B,” says a voice from the window. “I’m Blankie-Boy and you are toast!”
In leaps a toddler with a blanket around his neck. He leaps straight at Doctor-B and knocks the Bee-O-matic right off his head. The Bee-O-matic bounces and bursts into pieces as it smashes on the cement floor.
Doctor-B stands up with his mouth wide-open. He snaps his teeth shut with a click as a loud buzzing comes zipping towards him.
“That is not such a good thing,” says Doctor-B. He tries to run for the door, but the bees swarm after him. The bees no longer controlled by the Bee-O-matic are not in a pleasant mood. The angry bees cover Doctor-B in stings and super-B-goo until Doctor-B is no longer move.
“Ouch, ow, OW!” he yells, “I think I want to go home now. Ow! This is not so fun anymore…okay you can stop any time now”
While the honeybees swarm Doctor-B, the toddler goes to free IncredaBaby from the super-B-goo. “Hi IncredaBaby,” says Blankie-Boy, “I’ll just get the goo-B-gone spray and set you free.”
“Thanks Blankie-Boy,” says IncredaBaby, “already on it!” IncredaBaby uses her mega-drool power to dissolve the super-B-goo.
“That is kind of disturbing, yet also so amazing!” says Doctor-B. “I should have realized that nothing can stand-up to baby drool.”
Blankie-Boy is looking puzzled. “If you could dissolve the super-B-goo why did you wait for me?”
IncredaBaby smiles, “I wanted to see who was following me.”
“Now everyone stand back!” IncredaBaby uses her super stinky baby powers to fill her diaper. Then she throws the diaper right on top of Doctor-B’s head. The super-B-goo make the diaper stick to his head.
“Oh no!” cries Doctor-B. “That is a truly awful smell. Get it off, get it off! Oh my – it is so stinky!”
“Yes you certainly are, Doctor-B,” said Blankie-Boy.
IncredaBaby and Blankie-Boy use the goo-B-gone to get rid of the rest of the super-B-goo. Then with the help of all the bees they work on returning the flowers to where they belong. It is lots of work.
At the B-warehouse, the police arrive to take away the super-sticky and super-stinky Doctor-B. Only to find he has managed to escape.
After the heroes have finished the replanting, IncredaBaby asks Blankie-Boy to come over for some cheese and crackers. They go to IncredaBaby’s house. Blankie-Boy fixes the snacks while IncredaBaby goes to clean up and slip into a fresh diaper and sleeper.
When IncredaBaby comes back down, Blankie-Boy has already left. It is past midnight. “I wonder if I’ll see that toddler again?” says IncredaBaby to herself. She eats her snack, and then she goes up to her crib to sleep.
The next morning, her mommy and daddy come to check on her.
“Oh look she’s all clean and dry again this morning,” says mommy. “It is almost like she changes herself. And she sleeps through the night – my little incredible baby! Oh wait – what’s this in her hair?
Daddy looks also. “I think it is honey and cheese.”
Mommy looks at daddy with a frown. “Did you give her a snack last night? She is too young for that kind of food!”
“Oh no,” says daddy. “It wasn’t me…and we don’t have any honey.”
“Huh,” said mother. “That is very strange. Very, very strange. Oh well – come on dear let’s just go have some breakfast while our darling is still sleeping.”
