Baby Puzzle - In this puzzle, you babysit nookums. To avoid complications, don't open the door after the lady leaves. You'll have a long wait for her to return--make use of the WAIT command. There is food in the fridge. If you open the door, nookums escapes. You'll find her at house-48 up a tree. Get her down with a banana; make sure you and her are back in the house before the lady returns.

Paint Puzzle - This is a math puzzle. Mr. Yoshiko hires you to buy paint. You have to determine the right amount of paint to buy to get paid. A knowledge of weights and measures and the area formula are needed to solve it. LOOK AT THE CEILING. In the Odduck Library, you will find a book that will give hints to the solution.

Cake Puzzle - This is a tough one. Your job is to gather all the ingredients for a 'vanishing cake'. The recipe of which is in a book in the library. The water you can get from one of two faucets or the river. The cake mix you'll find in the GENERAL STORE, the pan can be jerry-rigged from a hubcap found in the JUNK YARD. You'll need to follow the time and temperature found in the recipe. There's a little bit of silliness involved in getting in the PIZZA PARLOR. Here you'll find the WAIT command, abbreviated to 'Z', useful. The mechanical duck might be worth a buck (smooth the dollar).

Car Wash Puzzle - Another lengthy puzzle. You'll need to fix a pothole first and you can find the solution to the pothole in the SUDS N DUDS. After fixing the pothole, you'll need to get the rake from the bottom of the river and return it to Earl so that he'll lend you the hose. After connecting the hose to the faucet in the park, go see Yoshiko to make a sign. Show the sign to the van to get the driver to stop.

Leaves Puzzle - Probably the hardest puzzle. You'll need to get the rake from the bottom of the river to rake the leaves. When you have the rake, you'll need to get the washer from the SUDS N DUDS and fix it with the belt. Push the washer to HOUSE 48. Tie the washer to the swing, load the washer up and turn it on. Then you can rake the leaves. The washer is also useful for getting nookums out of the tree.
