Scribbles, the cat, and Ink, the mouse, are buddies and fellow artists. Ink is excited for them to enter a \"Draw a Dinosaur\" contest. Ink is secretly scared of drawing a dinosaur. He urges Scribbles to have a go at it, but thinks the resulting effort looks like a pork chop. Next, Ink egg—and insists there\'s a dinosaur inside it. He\'s right! As the egg-drawing hatches, a baby dino crawls out and starts wailing for his mommy. Suddenly, the Porkchop-osaurus comes in and scoops the baby into her scaly arms. Realizing that they won\'t win the contest, Ink comes up with a new challenge. The duo create come-to-life drawings of a dinosaur amusement park!   Selling Points An artistic twist: Scribbles and Ink are artist-pals who have starred in two drawing and art-themed books.
