"How long is this damn road anyway?! Why did you have to take 'The Sunny Side of the Street' Street?!"
After they all piled into Labcoat's car (which is surprisingly normal), they have zoomed off toward the energy signal.
Unfortunately, Labcoat passed through the said street that puts all cars in pace with the slow, mellow music of the singing trees and dancing flowers.
Silence settles inside as they sit through the beat, their panicked minds tuning in with the slow rhythm.
Jesse turns to Mina.
"I hope your counterpart isn't hitting on Rhoda."
"What?" she asks incredulously, she jerks her thumb at Roger, "Do you even see me hitting on that? No offense, though," she says quickly, turning to Roger.
Rabbit ears wave off her concern, "None taken."
Mina leans towards Roger with a staged whisper, "He has always been the jealous type."
"I am not the jealous type," Jesse says calmly but nonetheless, with a frown, "Rhoda is super-friendly-"

Author's Note: This idea is brought to you by AnonymousZGirl. She's the one who suggested the name of Edna Valentine among other things as seen in one of her reviews in this story.
The detective grumpily settles down on a table not far from Martha Ackme. Of all the crazy tasks that she has to be assigned to, she has to be tied to a case involving an affair between a tooniphile and a toon.
Edna turns to see Bruno Boomer, a dashing toon star of the 1920s.
"Bruno? What are you doing here?"
Bruno adjusts his waiter's jacket, "Business has been kind of slow since cartoons went to colour," he gives her a wink and his trademark Bruno Bicep Flex, "But I still got it, Edna."
Edna smiles back, "Yeah, you still got it."
Majority of the female patrons scream making her jump. In a semi-stampede, they rush near the stage. On the front seats, Martha excitedly pats her hair and make-up.
Edna gives Bruno a perplexed look while s

There was this guy.
Never mind the name. Rhoda thought it's the classic boy-meets-girl story. He's a pretty decent guy, pretty cute too. He's funny, he's smart and like all first loves; the days were spent with her floating aloft in Cloud Nine.
But then he made a queasy face and said, "Let's just be friends."
Cartoon City experienced a Richter scale of level 9 earthquake when Rhoda crashed down to earth.
As she rose out of the bunny-shaped hole with stars dancing around her head, she vows to never make the same mistake again –by being the best girl space friend a guy can ever have.
Mina always says she's naïve but Rhoda would beg to differ.
The rabbit stretches her arms, taking in the sunlight. Humming, she skips to the direction of the studio.
A group of cartoon choir girls walks by her and she waves at them. They wave back and start whispering to each other.
Oh, right, she thought, I knew this would happen.

Chapter 1: I Wonder What This Button Does
Baby Herman can’t wait for Halloween.
To be over.
The “Baby” takes a puff from his cigar, having just finished filming the Halloween Special, miraculously, with no blow-ups. Filming the episode today was particularly easy because Roger is a natural scaredy-cat. Or bunny as the case may be.
He takes a long inhale in his cigar.
Writer's Tip: Show, don't tell.Show, don’t tell (SDT). It’s one of the few consistent pieces of advice that all writers have heard at one time or another. Even the most amateur of writers parrot it back, but knowing the phrase doesn’t necessarily mean that we understand it, or how to implement it.DarlingMionette
So what does “Show, don’t tell.” really mean? SDT is the idea that instead of telling your readers what’s happening in a story, you show them. This seems like an abstract concept to most of us, but what it boils down to is this: using words to give your readers an idea without having to directly state it. There are many ways good writers do this. It can be as simple as adding a scene for when your character walks down the street to the corner market rather than saying “she went to the store.” but it can also be as complicated as weaving subtext into dialogue and editing entire character personalities to prove a point down the line. I want to look at two example

Writing Emotions VISUALLY
"What is ...VISUAL writing?"
-- Visual writing is when the reader can SEE your story unfolding in their imaginations just like a movie.
* Non-visual: It was a dreary day.
* Visual: Icy rain slithered down the window glass from an iron gray sky.
This is more commonly known as SHOWING vs. TELLING.
* Telling: It was a dreary day.
* Showing: Icy rain slithered down the window glass from an iron gray sky.
"What's wrong with just...Telling them?"
-- The problem lays with Reader interpretation. Abstract (poetic) words and ideas rely on the readers' interpretation of what those words mean to them personally.
