Candidate for Adaptation? Promising


Well–what are you staring at? Don’t you know who I am?”

“No,” said Jim, stupidly.

“Well, I’m Time–Father Time! Now, make haste and set me free–if you want the world to run properly.”

“How did I happen to catch you?” asked Jim, without making a move to release his captive.

“I don’t know. I’ve never been caught before,” growled Father Time. “But I suppose it was because you were foolishly throwing your lasso at nothing.”


A young cowboy inadvertently lassoes Father Time, and wonders what to do with his newfound power. There’s an amusing 10-minute musical in here (probably for kids), but would require a large cast.
