SCENE 1
Telly and Rosita take turns reading the nursery rhymes in their book “Jack of All Rhymes”. They get half-way through “Little Jack Horner”, when the titular character runs in and tells them to stop reading his story. He says he’s “all the Jacks, man!” meaning he plays Jack in all the fairy tales and nursery rhymes. He is frustrated with being busy all the time and not having time for “jack.” He decides to quit and nominates Telly to take his place. He offers to help and promises children all over the world will read about him (and he gets to wear his hat).

SCENE 2
Telly puts the hat on and is ready to learn about being Jack. The first Jack he’s going to be is “Jack Be Nimble.” He shows he can run nimble and quick, but when the candlestick is brought it, it’s much bigger than Telly expected. Jack tells him the size of the candle depends on who draws it. Telly takes a running start and jumps over the candlestick with a crash landing. Now they move onto one of the harder ones...

SCENE 5
A crowd has gathered around the beanstalk. Luis brings a ladder, but it’s not nearly tall enough. Rosita tells Jack to go up and get Telly, since he’s the only one capable. He reaches Telly and has him hang onto him while they climb down, telling him to not let his fear get in the way. Once back down on the ground, everyone cheers and Jack offers to take his job back; it makes him who he is. Telly is relieved and Luis announces the sponsors and Slimey’s progress to Earth.
