"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's...Super Dude?" 

Super Dude is a puppet character who has a difficult time relating to the "human" world. His helpfulness is often misguided, as he forgets that as humans we are limited in our own abilities, and that what the world says, and what God says are often different.

Excerpt (Sample)

Props: A piece of paper for Noah puppet (the Ark plans)

Noah: (moaning, looking over the paper in his hands) Awwww, what am I gonna do? People will think I’m crazy when I start building this huge thing. Not to mention that it’s going to take forever to build! No one is going to want to help me. What was God thinking? I can’t do it! Oooohhhhhh!! (begins to wail and moan)

Super Dude: (SD) (begins to fly overhead and notices Noah’s cries.) That man is in trouble. He needs my help. This is a job for Super Dude! (He flies down and lands next to Noah) Hello my good man. I couldn’t help but notice your desperate cries. How can I be of service?

Noah: Who are you?

SD: Why, I’m Super Dude!

Noah: Know anything about boats?

SD: Sure. I know a song about boats.

(sing) "Row, row, row your boat

Gently down the stream.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,

Life is but a dream.

Noah: (not impressed) Is that all you know about boats?

SD: Pretty much.

Noah: Then, I don’t see how you can help me.

SD: Why? Do you have some kind of boat emergency?

Noah: You could say that. See this? These are the directions to build a gigantic boat. They’re very specific. Plus, if I don’t do it exactly right I’m gonna be in big trouble.

SD: (looking at the plans) Whoa! That’s one big boat! You must have a lot of kids in order to need a boat that size.

Noah: Not exactly.

SD: Then why such a big boat?

Noah: It’s to carry animals in. This boat has to be big enough to carry 2 animals of each kind.

SD: Are you starting your own zoo?
