CROCODILE MEDICINE

The reality of a children's hospital ward and the fancy of the odd menage next door (a crocodile, a kangaroo, and a giraffe) don't really mix in this story of long-term patient Julie whose boredom is relieved when Crocodile arrives complaining of a pain. The doctor and nurses are afraid of Crocodile's many teeth but Julie gives him his medicine and the two become happy companions. It seems that this was created to cheer up a real Julie whose only home is the hospital; others will find Crocodile's medicine pretty flat compared to Curious George's laugh cure.
