OK, episode number 2. This is called HypnoChris for a good reason. I also wanted the guest star in this episode to be Richard Horvitz (I am so obvious). I would like him to do the main guy's voice, but I just didn't think it would sound right. The picture below is the opening sketch.

And that would be Melvin. I think the Richard Horvitz voice suits him, don't you?
 

HypnoChris


New Character (guest)- Melvin the hypnotic powered ghost


Setting: Chris’s room with nobody in it. Chris walks through the door and drops her backpack. She looks around.


Chris: Raven? Where are you?


Raven: I’m not here


Chris: Funny, you seem to be here


Raven (sarcastically): O tee hee. Seriously! I’m not here!


Chris: Why not?


Raven: Oh, you’ll see


(Raven dematerializes and a bright light cuts through the room. A ghost with a shirt with a read and white swirl on it appears)


Ghost: I am looking for Raven. Is she here?


Chris: Uhh…no…who are you and what are you doing in my room?


Raven (materializing): OUR ROOM! Oh no!


(Dematerializes)


Chris: Forget her. Who are you?


Ghost (suddenly sounding loud and strong): I am ruler of all hypnotic powers! I rule all hypnotized people and ghosts…and those swirly things!


Chris: Yeah, but what’s your name?


Ghost: Oh, Melvin


(Chris snickers at the name)


Melvin: Do not laugh at my name!


(Raven materializes and laughs hysterically with Chris)


Melvin: YOU! RAVEN!


Raven: Leave me alone (continues to laugh)


Melvin: STOP MAKING FUN OF MY NAME!


(Chris and Raven laugh even harder)


Melvin (loud and strong): You asked for it!


(A green light comes out of Melvin’s hand and hits Chris)


Chris: OK, that was annoying


Melvin: You’re supposed to be my slave


Chris: No…


(Raven pushes Melvin through the ceiling. Cut to a cornfield. Melvin lands in it and gets up and walks away)


Melvin (off screen): That girl is strong


(Cut to Chris’s room again)


Raven: are you in pain?


Chris: No


Raven: You sure?


Chris (looking directly at Raven): I’m sure. Please quit asking me that!


(A light flashes in her eyes)


Raven: I’m sorry. I’ll stop


Mom’s voice: Christa! Dinner!


Chris: Got to go


(Cut to Chris, Mom, Dad, and Ralph all sitting around a dinner table)


Mom: Christa, how was school?


Chris: Mom, please! You know I hate that name. My name is Chris…Chris!


Mom: Oh but your name is so…


(Chris looks at her and her eyes flash)


Mom: Of course, Chris


Ralph: Hey, loser, pass the ham


Chris: Shut up!


(Ralph starts to say something but nothing comes out of his mouth. He does it continuously)


Chris: I’m done


Dad: You haven’t finished you…


(Chris’s eyes flash)


Dad: You’re excused


(Cut to Raven sitting on Chris’s bed. Melvin appears)


Raven: I thought I got rid of you


Melvin (loud and strong): I didn’t finish with you! YOU ARE MY SLAVE!


(He hits her with a blast like he did with Chris)


Raven: What soda would you like?


Melvin: Grape, extra fizz


Raven: Yes


(She dematerializes and Chris walks in the room)


Melvin (pointing to Chris): YOU! Get me a snack


(She looks at him funny and sits on her bed)


Melvin: Hello, I ordered you to do something


Chris: Point?


Melvin: Hmm…my powers must have worked on you differently. I guess it’s because you’re…alive


Chris: You bet it did. Thanks for the hypnotic powers


(Raven returns with a purple soda)


Raven: Your drink


(Cut to school. Chris is sitting in school and looking at her watch anxiously)


Chris: C’mon. I’m bored out of my mind! Wait…


(Chris looks up at the teacher)


Chris: Ms. Jones, we get out early today


(Ms. Jones looks at Chris)


Ms. Jones: No we don’t


(Chris’s eyes flash)
Ms. Jones: Leave


(The class walks out excitedly. Melissa walks up to Chris with Jeff)


Melissa: I heard you talking to yourself again…crazy


Jeff: You’re crazy?


Chris: No!


Jeff: Ha ha! You’re insane!


(Chris’s eyes flash)


Chris: You think you’re elephants


(Melissa and Jeff suddenly wave their arms around by their noses and make fake elephant noises. Chris laughs)


(Raven appears in front of Chris)


Chris: Hey


Raven (looking around): Hi…


Chris: What are you looking for? Did you lose something?


Raven: Besides free-will, no


Chris: What are you talking about?


(Raven grabs Chris’s shoulders)


Raven: Every time I’m around Melvin


(Chris laughs at the name)


Raven: I act like his slave. If he tells me to get him a sandwich, I’ll do it. If he tells me to pick up his book, I’ll do it. If he tells be to do an Irish jig, I’ll do it!


Chris: Sounds to me like he’s got you hypnotized


Raven: What?


(Raven lets go of Chris. Melissa and Jeff walk by, still walking like elephants)


Chris: Duh, that’s what he does


Raven: Oh…you’ve got to help me!


Chris: What can I do?


(All the people around Chris and Raven freeze and Melvin appears)


Melvin (points to Raven): I want chips


(Raven walks away)


Chris: Stop hypnotizing her


Melvin (loud and strong): Never!


Chris: DO IT!


(Chris’s eyes flash)


Melvin (shaking his head): You can’t hypnotize me! I rule the art of hypnotics


Chris: Hypnotics is an art?


Melvin: I don’t think so


Chris: Oh


Melvin: Yeah…so. (Clears throat. Sounds loud and strong) I will never release Raven! The day she made fun of me she became my slave!


Chris: Let’s make a deal. If I can hypnotize you, you’ll let Raven go. If you can hypnotize me, you can take my powers back


Melvin: Hmm…sounds fair enough


(Raven comes back with a bag of chips)


Raven: Your chips


(Melvin eats the entire bag in one bite, including the wrapper. He raises his hands and everything around them turns black. He turns and looks at Chris)


Melvin: Act like a monkey!


(Chris looks at him oddly)


Chris: No


Melvin: That should have worked


Raven: It didn’t


Melvin: Be quite


Raven: Yes, sir


Chris: Sing!


(Her eyes flash. Melvin opens his mouth but nothing comes out. They turn back-to-back then turn and look at each other)


Chris/Melvin: DANCE!


(They both do a tap)


Chris/Melvin: Err…


Chris: Who won?


Melvin: Not sure…


Chris: How about you just fix Raven


Melvin: And you give up your powers


(The surroundings change back to normal)


Chris/Melvin (upset): Fine…


(Melvin zaps Chris and Raven then leaves)


Raven: Thanks


Chris (upset): Yeah…


(Raven dematerializes. The people start moving again. Chris drags herself off screen. Jeff and Melissa walk by and make one more elephant noise)
