Wiz Kid Ee-Gee-Fiki (formerly known as
Eleazar Goodenough) has been working on an act with his realistic
puppet Bunny-Fiki. The rabbit always turns up missing whenever
Ee-Gee-Fiki goes looking for him, so Ee-Gee-Fiki uses magic to
make him briefly appear for the audience. Then the rabbit goes
back to traveling around the world and disappears again.
Easy Hare-Mail Box construction plans included (several
versions), plus instructions for making a Rabbit Vanishing
Carrier Cage, and a way to convert a standard cloth Pet Carrier
into a Vanishing Rabbit Carrier.
Ee-Gee-Fiki sets up the Bunny Post Office on a
table, shows it empty, and then picks up the Pet Carrier looking
for Bunny-Fiki because its his turn to perform. The Carrier
is empty, but just then the red flag on the side of the Post
Office pops up.
Ee-Gee-Fiki lowers the flag and opens the front doors of the Post
Office, but all he finds is a postcard from Bunny Fiki showing
him lounging on a beach in Hawaii. The message on the card states
that Bunny-Fiki will be sending Ee-Gee-Fiki a package.
Each time Ee-Gee-Fiki opens the Post Office, it is seen to be
completely empty. The red flag pops up again, and this time
Ee-Gee-Fiki finds a small package inside. Opening the package,
Ee-Gee-Fiki removes a Hawaiian Lei and a pair of sunglasses.
Now Ee-Gee-Fiki gets worried that Bunny-Fiki has forgotten about
the magic show, and decides to put up a Wanted poster
in the Post Office to bring Bunny-Fiki home. With the help of the
kids, he spells Wanted Bunny-Fiki on a white board
and posts it on the back wall of the Post Office.
To help lure Bunny-Fiki into the Post Office, Ee-Gee-Fiki
produces ten or fifteen carrots and places them where Bunny-Fiki
can find them. But Bunny-Fiki eats the carrots and
still doesnt appear.
Finally Ee-Gee-Fiki gets all the kids chanting Come Home,
Bunny-Fiki! Suddenly the red flag pops up and when
Ee-Gee-Fiki opens the Post Office, he finds Bunny-Fiki wearing a
small Hawaiian Lei.
Bunny-Fiki, after a brief bit in front of the
audience, is placed in the Pet Carrier. Suddenly the Pet Carrier
is turned inside out and upside down to show that once again,
Bunny-Fiki is traveling the world. A long, red tissue paper
scroll covered with Chinese characters falls out of the Pet
Carrier notifying Ee-Gee-Fiki that Bunny-Fiki is on his way to
Dont worry, Ee-Gee-Fiki tells the audience,
Bunny-Fiki can take care of himself and he always comes
home in time for supper.
