:SPOILER!:

Once there were two color kittens with green eyes, called Brush and Hush. They liked to mix and make colors by splashing one color into another. They had buckets and buckets... and buckets and buckets of color to splash around with. Out of these colors they would make all the colors in the world. The buckets had the colors written on them, but of course the kittens couldn't read. They had to tell by the colors. "It is very easy," said Brush. "Red is red. Blue is blue." said Hush. But they had no green. "No green paint!" said Brush and Hush. And they wanted green paint, of course, because nearly every place they liked to go was green. Green as cats' eyes. Green as grass. By streams of water. Green as glass. So they tried to make some green paint. Brush mixed red paint and white paint together -- and what did that make? It didn't make green. It made pink. Pink as pigs. Pink as toes. Pink as a rose. Or a baby's nose. Then Hush mixed yellow and red together and it made orange. Orange as an orange tree. Orange as a bumblebee. Orange as the setting sun. Sinking slowly in the sea. The kittens were delighted but it didn't make green. Then they mixed red and blue together -- and what did that make? It didn't make green. It made a deep dark purple. Purple as violets. Purple as prunes. Purple as shadows. On late afternoons. Still no green! And then... O wonderful kittens! O Brush! O Hush! At last, almost by accident, the kittens poured a bucket of blue and a bucket of yellow together, and it came to pass that they made a green as green as grass. Green as green on a tree... Green as islands in the sea. The little kittens were so happy with all the colors they had made that they began to paint everything around them. They painted... Green leaves and red berries and purple flowers and pink cherries. Red tables and yellow chairs. Black trees with golden pears. Then the kittens got so excited that they knocked their buckets upside down and all the color ran together. Yellow, red, a little blue, a little black... and that made brown. Brown as a tugboat. Brown as an old goat. Brown as a beaver. The kittens fell asleep in the warm dark night with all their colors out of sight and as they slept they dreamed their dream. A wonderful dream of a red rose tree that turned white when you count to three. One.. Two.. Three! Of a purple land in a pale pink sea where apples fell from a golden tree and then a world of Easter eggs that danced about on little short legs. And they dreamed that a green cat danced with a little pink dog till they all disappeared in a soft gray fog. And suddenly Brush woke up and Hush woke up. It was morning. They crawled out of bed into a bright, bright world. The sky was wild with sunshine. The kittens were wild with purring and pouncing. Pounce, pounce, pounce. They got so pouncy they knocked over the buckets and the colors ran together. There were all the colors in the world and the color kittens had made them.
