Another “hogger?”


About the same time—at Silverthorn’s Café “I’m thinking about running for Mayor of Moosehead City, Pop.”

Really? You’d have to move to the big city, Sam.”

Yes, but there is no length of residency requirement, and it’s a part-time position,” Sam smiled as he was about to drop the best news on his parents, “I’ve also been offered a position as Native Studies Professor at Moosehead City College.”

Season 8—Chapter 5—New Adventure—Episode 1:

Leaving the 21st Century behind—we find Larry in Loco 01 The great Northwoods of Minnesota seemed endless as the train made its way towards the border with Canada.

The great Northwoods of Minnesota seemed endless.

The great Northwoods of Minnesota seemed endless…

Larry Yatkowsky set the controls for “maximum safe speed” and the mid 21st Century technology (thanks to Cujo) automatically adjusted the locomotive’s speed to the condition of the tracks—maintaining an average speed of 40 mph, and made his way back to the “Parlor Car”—Flutters agreed to monitor the controls.

I’m sure Boomer will be pleased to be included with the canines…” Larry quipped as he went out the back of the car.

Wait—I didn’t mean to…” Jay exclaimed as he rushed to follow Larry—seconds later Jay returned, “Larry disappeared!”

I’m not a hogger, Larry.”

Cujo also designed another outfit for you.”

Oh really?”

Yes,” Larry smiled, “Okay, Cujo—NOW would be good.”
