The Pet Shop
In a dark, dark street, there is a dark, dark house…
In this Funnybones story, the big skeleton and the little skeleton are fed up with the dog skeleton and decide to swap him at the pet shop. They start off with a goldfish but soon get tired of him and swap him for a parrot - but soon they get bored of him too… Eventually, the pet shop owner gives them a box to take home with a surprise pet inside. What do you think it will be?
The Ghost Train
'’Whoo-ooo-ooo!’’ It’s midnight at the station and the three skeletons climb aboard the ghost train for a spooky ride. But they discover something even more scary!

The Black Cat
In this Funnybones story, the skeletons go sledging - WHEE! - and crashing - BANG! They can’t see their bones in the white snow but they can see a black cat… until she slips into their dark, dark cellar.
'’Zzz!’’ The three skeletons enjoy a holiday onboard their little boat. But one night - ‘‘Yo-ho-ho’’ - the pirates come and put them out to sea on a tiny raft, launching them on an oceanful of new adventures.
One dark dark night the three skeletons go driving and solve six mysteries. Lots of things look and sound mysterious in the dark but the last mystery is the most important of all - if they don’t solve it, they can’t go home!
Give the Dog a Bone
The dog skeleton is falling apart - bits of him are dropping off - bone by bone! Who will pick up the pieces and put him back together again?
The big skeleton and the little skeleton are being chased by dinosaurs… in their dreams! Luckily dogs can dream too - and save the day.

Bumps in the Night
No matter where they are, the two skeletons keep going bump in the night - clonk! There’s only one thing to do: ‘‘Send for Doctor Bones!’’
