Behind The Scenes CCSI IV

This post is dedicated to Emil the first paparazzi photographer of the CCSI shows. I have no doubt that little Emil is taking photos of others that are at the Rainbow Bridge. If only we could see those photos.

Emil Official Photographer of the CCSI shows

I had asked Karl to let me know how Emil got into taking photos on the set of the CCSI shows and received the following from him.

"When Emil was hanging out on the set of CCSI III he saw many things that were not meant to be public! He had the ingenious idea that if he could capture those with a camera he might be able to sell them and this way make money for charity! He begged me for a camera and as I didn't really know what it was for and thought he just wanted to take pretty pictures of the desert I gave him one, actually engraved his name on it too . . . the idea - money for charity is always good, right? . . . there was no stopping the paparazzo - a name he proudly gave himself . . . he took great joy in his work and had an uncanny ability to catch cats, and dogs, off guard!"

We miss you Emil and the others that are now at the bridge. Always know that all over the bridge are close to us in our heart and thoughts.

Now let's begin with the behind the scenes photos of CCSI IV - The Momomo Caper. I would like to mention that no injuries or accidents happened while filming.

'Twas After Christmas

'Twas after Christmas, and all through the house,
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste,
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I'd remember the marvellous meals that were prepared,
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely reared,

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese,
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please.

As I dressed myself in an old shirt,
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.

I said to myself, as I only can,
"You can't spend a winter disguised in that shirt!"

So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruitcake, every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like must be banished,
Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie--not even a lick.
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore.
But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot
Happy almost New Year to all and to all a good diet!

CCSI II - The Santa Caper

All of us at Little Productions welcome you to enjoy the classic holiday viewing of the Christmas story The Santa Caper. We hope this will become one of your favorite traditions during this festive time of year. We dedicate this show to all of our loved ones, friends, and all who have left us to go over The Rainbow Bridge this year. We miss them very much but they are always close to us in our thoughts and our heart. Take a few minutes to remember them . . .

. . . Wishing all of you and your family peace and happiness for the new year that is about to begin . . . now sit back and enjoy this special holiday show uninterrupted by commercials for your viewing pleasure . . . Momo is wanting you to know that she is serving refresehemts at her place so be sure to stop over there for the goodies.


by Karl

On a beautiful day in December, at the crack of dawn, one after another of the little elves wakes up, yawns, stretches, and rises.

Each puts on his or her little pointy shoes and off they run into the kitchen to greet Santa who should be sitting there, reading the paper, waiting for the hot coffee Mrs. Claus is preparing.
But what is that! No


“Mrs. Claus, where is Santa?”

“I don’t know” answers Mrs. Claus, “I thought he was with you guys, I haven’t seen him all morning. Maybe he is in the barn with the reindeer.”
Off they go, into the barn.

“Good morning Rudolph, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. Have you seen Santa?

“No, we haven’t” says Rudolph. Donner explains “Last time we’ve seen him was yesterday evening” and Blitzen continues “When he came in to say good night.”
“Why are you asking” inquires Dasher, and Comet cuts in screaming “Where is our Santa?”

“He usually comes in before breakfast to greet us all” says Vixen. “Yes, and he brings us a treat!” cries Cupid. “That’s true” adds Prancer “and he pets us all too!” “And it is late – and he hasn’t been here today” Dancer sums up the situation. “What a mystery” Pepper Minstix mumbles. “Let’s go and check his room.” And off they race into Santa Claus’ room.


But there is a note, on the nightstand, leaning against his alarm clock.
Alabaster Snowball picks it up and reads:

“Oh my” Sugarplum Mary screams, “they kidnapped Santa! What are we going to do?”

“We have to call in the police and let them help us find Santa Claus!” Wunorse Openslae says.

“But you read what they say: Do not involve the police!” whines Bushy Evergreen.

“They always say that” replies Shinny Upatree, “it doesn’t mean anything. We need the police to figure this out! I will call NPPDCCSI (North Pole Police Department Cat/Canine Crime Scene Unit), they will find clues that will help us to get Santa back!”

Half an hour later Detective Schlau and Dr. Hinweis arrive. They put yellow ribbon around the room so no one can go in there anymore and they start looking for clues.

“Dr. Hinweis, look at this, I found some colored eggshells. Let’s get them to the laboratory and see if we can match them to something.”

"Yes, Detective Schlau. And look ovew hewe – I found a paw pwint. And it looks exactly like a wabbit footie…. I will telepowt to the laboratory immediately and check these things out myself."

“Hmmm, colored eggshells and a rabbit footprint. I think we should pay the Easter Bunny a visit!”

Off Detective Schlau goes, knocking on Easter Bunnies door. No answer. He knocks again. Nothing. Just when the detective is ready to knock down the door, it opens and a very tired and hung-over looking Easter Bunny dressed in a Santa Claus outfit appears.

“Are you the Easter Bunny and are those Santa Claus’ clothes?” Detective Schlau asks.

“Yes. And yes. But they are mine now” and the Easter Bunny yawns, “I won them in our poker game last night!”

“What do you mean ‘poker game’? Where is Santa Claus? What happened here last night?”

“Please don’t tell Mrs. Claus. She would not approve, that’s why Santa hasn’t told her. We meet once a month to play a little game of poker,” the Easter Bunny confesses, “and last night was our game night. Santa lost everything but would not stop so he bet his clothes. That’s why I have them, because he lost again!” “And then,” Detective Schlau inquires “what happened then? Where did he go? Where is he now?”

“How would I know” the Easter Bunny exclaims, “we all had way too much eggnog, Santa borrowed one of my outfits to wear on the way home, and he left. What’s going on? Why are you asking about Santa?”

“Santa Claus was kidnapped” Detective Schlau explains. “We are looking for clues to what exactly happened.”

At that moment Dr. Hinweis teleports back and looks at the Easter Bunny evidence. "I just matched the eggshells we found at the scene of the cwime to samples of youw eggs that we have on file." “We also had found a paw print, Size 17” adds Detective Schlau. “May I ask: what size paw do you wear?”

“This is ridiculous” screams the Easter Bunny, “I was here all night, alone! Look around, there is no Santa here.”

They all start looking around when all of a sudden the Easter Bunny cries “My left hiking paw is missing! And some of my eggs are broken and most of the shells are gone! Someone is trying to implicate me in this crime! Whoever kidnapped Santa stole my hiking paw and my eggshells and left them at the scene of the crime!”

“O.K.”, Detective Schlau sighs. “Let’s start over. Who was at the game last night and could have stolen these things and taken Santa?”

“It was just the three of us, as usual” the Easter Bunny explains. “Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and me.”

“Well, Dr. Hinweis, let’s pay the tooth fairy a visit” says Detective Schlau and off they go.

“Come on in” chirps the Tooth Fairy once they arrive at her home. “So you want to know where Santa is? We left together last night; he could hardly walk – too much eggnog as usual – so I gave him a hand. But then we met a friend of his who supposedly lives closer and he took over. I don’t know who it was, it was dark and I couldn’t really see anything. I can show you were we parted ways.”

Off they go to a place where the road bisects, one way leading to the Tooth Fairy’s place, the other to Santa Claus’ home.

"Look" exclaims Dr. Hinweis "signs of a stwuggle! I have some wipped fabwic, and some haiw on it. I will send it to DNA analysis immediately, maybe we'll get a match! And it seems as if someone left a twail of colowed eggshells fow us to follow. There must have been some eggs in the Easter Bunny's outfit that Santa wowe and he used them to his advantage!"

So they follow the trail of colored eggshells deep into the woods. Minutes turn into an hour, feet become tired, and Detective Schlau and Dr. Hinweis feel as if someone were watching them…But no one there except the trees.

"Look Detective” Dr. Hinweis all of a sudden shouts “the trees are alive!” They both look up and sure enough – there is a head on every tree! And they wear jewelry too!

“Hello”, chirps the closest one “who are you?”

Before they can answer another tree whispers “I know! They are CCSI!”

“Hellooo”, murmurs a third, “we can all see that; it is written on their uniforms!”

Before the trees can get into a serious argument, Dr. Hinweis’ cell phone rings. She listens and shouts "We have a match! The DNA belongs to the Chwistkind!”

Luckily CCSI headquarters had an address on file for the Christkind and when they arrive at his house Detective Schlau takes the lead and breaks the door with his shoulder while Dr. Hinweis screams "Police. Lay down on the gwound!"

“Please don’t kill me” cries the Christkind “I didn’t mean any harm! Except for a really bad headache Santa Claus is fine, he’s sitting right there! I only kidnapped him because I wanted Christmas to be what it used to be – about family, love, and peace not about presents, greed, and shopping! I thought if Santa Claus was gone and couldn't bring the presents people will remember, sing, talk, and relate with each other.”

And after Detective Schlau released Santa Claus from his chain and Dr. Hinweis gave him some eggnog-hangover-rescue-pills, he forgave the Christkind, and didn’t press charges.

From now on the Christkind will ride with Santa in his sleigh and hand out love, peace, joy, and Christmas Spirit (40 proof, ho ho ho ho ho ho ho) because these are the most precious presents of all.

This show is dedicated in loving memory to our actors in the production of CCSI II; Roscoe & Bonnie, and to all who have gone to The Rainbow Bridge this past year. Forever they are in our thoughts and close to our hearts. We miss them and forever will love them.

The Party

The party is in full swing. I am not able to totally throw myself into the party as I am worried about the mom and dad of the house. You see they were hit by an ice storm on Friday and do not have power in their house. Power probably will not be made available to them until Sunday afternoon, if even then. I feel a little selfish being in this beautiful tropical place while the temperature in their house keeps falling. Today is was at 57 degrees and they know it will just keep getting cooler. Moth and Doth spent their day in restaurants, coffee shops with Internet, and shopping in nice warm stores. Tonight they will be staying at a friend's house where it will be warm for them. They have told me not to worry and have fun but a little part of me feels guilty. Oh well, on with the party . . .

Since I have had to teleport to an Internet place my time is limited plus blogger is not being nice either so I cannot not upload photos. For a complete story on the party, photos, and the winner of Karl's contest please visit The Cat Realm for all of the details.

Everyone heading over to Karl's to see who the winner of his contest is.

If I don't get to visit before Christmas I want all of you to know I am thinking of you and wishing all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, if blogger will be nice we are trying to have a complete rerun of last year's award winning CCSI III The Santa Caper written by Karl. This will be brought to you with no intermissions!

Peace and love to all.

CCSI IV - The Momomo Caper Part III

The Momomo Caper is dedicated in loving memory to Roscoe

* * * * * * *


. . . . . . . an ambulance is called immediately, and after Inspector Spuren checks her thoroughly he exclaims “She is poisoned too!”

While they wait for the ambulance they check the house and they find lots of herbs, and also a whole pile of nip for tea.

“Take samples, Inspector Spuren, and let’s see if this is the poisonous nip.

"It is strange though” Detective Klug wonders “that the Herbal Lady would poison herself. Let’s see if we can find out where she actually got the nip.”

But the old lady is in no condition to speak, so the CCSI team decides to take a look around and see if they can figure it out for themselves.

“Look Detective” says Inspector Spuren “here are her walking shoes. They have a very distinctive sole pattern and there is a lot of clay in the crevices. We can just follow the trail from her house. Maybe it will lead us to the nip!”

And so they do. They follow the narrow trail from the herb lady's house into the forest and sure enough, after only ten minutes they come to a clearing which is covered with nip.

“That must be it” says Detective Klug. “So where does the poison come in?”

“I might have an answer to that” explains Inspector Spuren. “The lab just called, they found the manufacturer of the specific pesticide that poisoned Dr. Kroesus and most probably the old Herbal Lady too then checked their client list. The only big sale in the last several months went to the local government here.”

“So” says the Detective “let’s give them a call!”

And wouldn’t you know it, the government admitted that they were worried about some little weed upshots in their local forest and decided to just root them out. They ordered massive amounts of pesticides and sprayed the whole forest with it. Without telling anybody because they thought no one lived there, so everything would be fine.

They agreed to pay for all the medical bills for Mr. Kroesus and the old Herbal Lady who are both to be expected to recover. They will also issue a public apology and create a department for non-toxic environment management. Mr. Kroesus donated the start-up money for that. The CCSI team was honorably awarded the first of the newly created “Fighter for a Non-Toxic Environment Award”.

. . . . . . . “OK, let’s round up the suspects!” decided Detective Klug. “Get the maid and the kids in here for questioning and send his tea cup to the lab for a toxicology check!”

"No” deny the kids Paul Junior and Eva Maria in unison when they are questioned awhile later “we did not bring him anything, we actually left the house before dinner to go to a lizard BBQ at some neighbors.”

"Yes" admits the maid, "I brought him his nip tea after diner as usual. But I did not poision him, I would never do something like that, and she starts sobbing.

“Detective Klug” interrupts Inspector Spuren, “the lab just called and they found traces of a pesticide in the tea cup and the toxicology report shows the same pesticide in Dr. Kroesus blood! They are trying to pin down the exact brand and find out who recently bought it.”

“OK,” concludes Detective Klug, “it was the tea. Now if the maid didn’t do it then who did? Where did the tea come from?” he asks the maid.

“I get it from an old lady at the edge of the forest. She collects all kind of herbal remedies and sells them to make a modest living.

Off they go to pay the Herbal Lady a visit. They arrive at the little house at the edge of the forest and knock but there was no answer. They knock again, louder this time. No answer.

“Look at this,” shouts Inspector Spuren, “ I can see her sitting in her chair. Something is not right! Let's break in!”

So they break down the door and find the old lady stooped over in her chair. She is barely breathing and very pale!

An ambulance is called immediately, and after Inspector Spuren checks her thoroughly he exclaims “She is poisoned too!” . . . . . . .
