Cardboard bushes, sword, flames (red tissue paper), feather, hotdog, red
The dragon comes on stage. Head boy sticks red-socked hand out of
the mouth occasionally as if fire is shooting out.
Ahhhhh ChoooooÖ(as dragon
sneezes throw red colored tissue paper on fake bush as if it had caught fire,
do this a couple of times)
Now cut that out. Dragon, prepare to be slain.
Sir Cub Scout, why are you going to slay me? Iím a peaceful dragon. I have
done you no harm.

Maybe you can take care of me another way?
(Reaches into the dragon and pulls out the feather) Here is the problem, no

find something useful for you to do.
What can I do? Being a dragon is all I know.
I have an idea. (Pulls out hot dog and puts it on a stick and holds it in
front of the dragon) Now blow on this, you can be the kingís personal cook.
His favorite food is charcoal broiled hotdogs.

This skit is divided into 3 very short simple scenes with little props and
very simple costumes. Cubs can play one or more parts, except Aesop. Aesop is
the narrator and holds up a sign at the end of each scene that states the
moral of the story.
Ladies and gentlemen. Tonight I would like you to meet some of the people I
have written about.
(Enter 8 knights. One knight does battle with the other 7 knights, taking on
one at a time. When he has finally finished defeating the seventh knight, who
has fallen "dead" on the floor, the victor staggers then collapses in complete

Make One Weak."

(This scene needs a couple of simple props - a sign saying "Men Working", a
small sawhorse, if available, and a box with a sign on it saying "Ditch. " As
the scene opens, 2 boys are calmly licking big lollipops. They are standing by
the "ditch" when the Bully enters.)
Okay, you guys, I'm hungry. You give me your candy.
Boy # 1:
No, I won't.
Okay, then I'll take it (gets into a scuffle with boy #1 and yanks the candy

Here he comes!
Out walks a Cub Scout,
flexing muscles and grinning. (Curtains close/boys exit.)
