Ash and Sonic's Great Race

  • George Carlin: Ash was waiting at the university when a hedgehog arrived.
  • Ash: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Who are you?
  • Sonic: I'm Sonic. Who are you?
  • Ash: I'm Ash. I run this branch line.
  • Sonic: So you're Ash. Ah, I remembered now. You got stuck in the snow. I took your passengers and Freakazoid pulled you out. I've come to help you with your passengers today.
  • Ash: Help me?
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I can go faster than you.
  • Sonic: You can't.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Ash: I can.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Sonic: I'll race you!
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic. Their drivers agreed for the race going ahead. The stationmaster said...
  • Stationmaster: Are you ready? Go!
  • George Carlin: Ash never could go fast at first and Sonic drew in front.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Why don't you go fast, why don't you go fast?
  • George Carlin: Called Suzy and Pietra.
  • Ash: Wait and see, wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Hissed Ash.
  • Suzy and Pietra: He's a long way ahead.
  • George Carlin: They wailed. But Ash didn't mind. He remembered the level crossing. There was Sonic fuming at the gates while they sail gaily through.
  • Ash: Goodbye, Sonic!
  • George Carlin: Called Ash. After that the road left the railway so that they couldn't see Sonic. Then, they had to stop at the station to let off passengers.
  • Ash: Peep peep! Quicky please!
  • George Carlin: Called Ash and off they went again.
  • Ash: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Ash.
  • Suzy and Pietra: We're coming along, we're coming along.
  • George Carlin: Sang Suzy and Pietra.
  • Ash: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Panted Ash, then he looked ahead. There was Sonic tooting triumphly on his horn.
  • Ash: Oh deary me, oh deary me!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Ash.
  • Driver: Steady, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll beat Sonic yet.
  • Suzy and Pietra: We'll be Sonic yet, we'll beat Sonic yet.
  • George Carlin: Echoed Suzy and Pietra.
  • Ash: We'll do it, we'll do it.
  • George Carlin: Panted Ash.
  • Ash: Oh bother! There's the station.
  • George Carlin: Then he heard Sonic.
  • Sonic: Goodbye, Ash. You must be tired. Sorry I can't stop. We hedgehogs have to work here you know. Goodbye.
  • Ash: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash.
  • Ash: We've lost.
  • George Carlin: But he felt better after a drink. The signal dropped.
  • Ash: Hurrah, we're off! Hurrah, we're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Ash. As they crossed the bridge, they heard an impatient...
  • Sonic: Honk honk!
  • George Carlin: There was Sonic waiting at the traffic lights. he started with a roar and chased on after Ash once again. Now Ash reached his full speed. Sonic tried hard but Ash was too fast. Whistling triumphantly he plunged into the tunnel leaving Sonic toiling far behind.
  • Ash: We've done it, we've done it!
  • George Carlin: Panted Ash.
  • Suzy and Pietra: We've done it, hooray! We've done it, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Chanted Suzy and Pietra as they whooshed into the last station. Everyone was there to celebrate Ash's victory. But they gave Sonic a big welcome too.
  • Sonic: Well done, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: That was fun. But to beat you over that hill, I should have to grow wings and be an airplane.
  • George Carlin: They now kept each others very busy. They often talked about their race, but Sonic's passengers don't like being bounced like peas in the frying pan, and Steven has warned Ash not to race at dangerous speeds. So although, between you and me, they would like to have another race. I don't think they ever will, do you?

Old Iron

  • George Carlin: One day, Raimundo had to wait at the University till Kevin and his books came in. This made him cross.
  • Raimundo: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Kevin laughed and Raimundo fumed again. After Raimundo had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • Raimundo: Kevin is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • Raimundo: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Ash and Alex were indigment.
  • Alex: Old iron?! Slow?!
  • Ash: Why, Kevin could beat you in a race any day!
  • Raimundo: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: I should like to see him do it. Next morning, Raimundo's driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled Raimundo ready for shunting. Al was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Raimundo puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • George Carlin: Called the signalman. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on Raimundo's footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when Raimundo started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • George Carlin: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • George Carlin: The fireman was ready when Kevin arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Kevin: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Kevin. Raimundo was laughing.
  • Raimundo: What a lark! What a lark!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • Raimundo: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Kevin: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Kevin. Kevin was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with Raimundo.
  • Kevin's Driver: Steady, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Kevin's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over Raimundo's buffer. The characters swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Kevin's driver checked the characters' speed, and Raimundo's fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Kevin: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Kevin.
  • Raimundo: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Kevin.
  • Kevin: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Kevin. The characters arrived at the station side by side. Steven was waiting.
  • Steven: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: Raimundo, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Kevin. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Kevin: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: It'll be lovely not to clank.

The Trouble With Mud

  • George Carlin: One morning, Ash was being cleaned when Terry arrived. Mud had blown all over his body.
  • Ash: Hello, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Called Ash.
  • Ash: You look as you had a mud bath. Be a sensible person and have a shower instead.
  • George Carlin: Terry snorted.
  • Terry: I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy trainers do.
  • George Carlin: The wind blew stronger.
  • Driver: Terry, slow down!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. This made Terry crosser still.
  • Terry: Now I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. At the next station was a sign: All Trains Must Wash Down Daily. Raimundo had just finished being cleaned.
  • Driver: Come on, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: You feel better too after a good hosedown.
  • Terry: Bah!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry and angrily let off steam.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty boy!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry's driver.
  • Driver: Now Raimundo will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later.
  • Terry: Good riddance.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Terry.
  • Terry: I'm far too busy to waste time with water.
  • George Carlin: He finished his journey safely and steamed into the big station. Steven was waiting. So are Terry's coaches and the passengers.
  • Steven: Goodness gracious!
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: You can't pull the train, Shaggy will have to do it. Terry you better get cleaned straight away.
  • George Carlin: Terry was soon being washed.
  • Terry: Mind my eyes!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled. Then he pulled Beedrill for the rest of the day.
  • Terry: Freight trains, freight trains!
  • George Carlin: He spluttered. He felt his position deeply.
  • Terry: That's for you, and you, and you!
  • Raimundo: Beedrill will be Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Raimundo.
  • Terry: They won't with me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Terry.
  • Terry: I'll teach them.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo got ready to take the express when Terry returned.
  • Terry: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Terry.
  • Terry: The hills are slippery. You may need help.
  • Raimundo: I don't need help on hills.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raimundo huffily.
  • Raimundo: Terry thinks he knows everything.
  • George Carlin: Earlier the storm had slipped Terry's Hill blowing leaves on the tracks which made them slippery. Even know the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. Al knew this. The signal shown cleared, and Raimundo began to go faster.
  • Raimundo: I'll do it, I'll do it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed. Halfway up, he was not so sure.
  • Raimundo: I must do it, I must do it.
  • George Carlin: But his feet slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the train at all.
  • Raimundo: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo. His feet were turning forward, but the heavy coaches pulled him backwards. The haul train started slipping down the hill. His driver shut off steam and put on the brakes, then carefully he stopped the train. Terry saw everything.
  • Terry: Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little Raimundo. I'm going to push behind.
  • George Carlin: Clouds of smoke and steam billowed from the snorting boys as they struggled up the hill.
  • Raimundo: We can do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Raimundo.
  • Terry: We will do it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Terry. At last they reached the top.
  • Raimundo: Peep peep! Thank you, goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo.
  • Terry: Boop boop!
  • George Carlin: Answered Terry.
  • Terry: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: That night, Steven came to see the characters. Terry was miserable.
  • Ash: Please, sir?
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Can Terry pull coaches again now?
  • Steven: If you understand that having a washdown as a sensle to every character, then yes, Terry, you may.
  • Terry: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Terry.
  • Terry: Dirty or clean, I'm a famous machine!
  • George Carlin: But no one heard but him.

Freakazoid

  • George Carlin: Autumn had come to the land of YTV. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth and an tractor was hard at work as Ash puff along. Later Ash saw the tractor close by.
  • Freakazoid: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said the tractor.
  • Freakazoid: I'm Freakazoid, I'm plowing.
  • Ash: I'm Ash, I'm pulling a train. What ugly wheels you got.
  • Freakazoid: They're not ugly, they're caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Said Freakazoid.
  • Freakazoid: I can go anywhere. I don't need rails.
  • Ash: I don't want to go anywhere.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I like my rails, thank you.
  • George Carlin: Winter came with dark clouds full of snow.
  • Driver: I don't like it.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash's driver.
  • Driver: A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us.
  • Ash: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash.
  • Ash: Soft stuff, nothing to it.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed on feeling cold but confident. They finished their journey safely but by now the country was covered.
  • Driver: You need your snowplough for the next journey, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Ash: Huh! Snow is silly soft stuff it won't stop me.
  • George Carlin: The snowplough was heavy and uncomfortable and made Ash cross. He shook it and he banged it and when they got back it was so damaged that the driver had to take it off.
  • Driver: You're a very naughty boy.
  • George Carlin: He said to Ash. Next morning, Ash's driver and fireman came early and worked hard to mend the snowplough, but they couldn't make it fit. Ash was pleased.
  • Ash: I shan't have to wear it, I shan't have to wear it.
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Suzy and Pietra. But they were rather worried.
  • Suzy and Pietra: I hope it's all right, I hope it's all right.
  • George Carlin: They whispered to each other. The driver was worried too.
  • Driver: It's not bad here.
  • George Carlin: He said to the fireman.
  • Driver: But it's sure to be deep in the valley.
  • Ash: Silly soft stuff.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Ash: I didn't need that stupid old thing yesterday and I shan't today. Snow can't stop me.
  • George Carlin: He rushed into a tunnel thinking how clever he was. But there was trouble ahead.
  • (Crash)
  • Ash: Cinders and ashes!.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'm stuck.
  • George Carlin: And he was.
  • Driver: Back, Ash, back.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver. Ash tried but his feet run and he couldn't move. The conductor went back for help while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slipped down until Ash was nearly buried.
  • Ash: Oh, my wheels and coupling rods. I shall have to stop here till I'm frozen. What a silly boy I am.
  • George Carlin: And Ash began to cry. At last the bus came to rescue the passengers. And then who should come to Ash's rescue but Freakazoid. Snow never worries him.
  • (Freakazoid hooks up to Pietra and pulls her and Suzy out of the snow)
  • George Carlin: He pulled the empty coaches away, then came back for Ash. Ash's feet were clear but still spun when he tried to move. Freakazoid tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged and at last dragged Ash clear of the snow ready for the journey home.
  • (Freakazoid goes away into the tunnel with Ash following him)
  • Ash: Oh, thank you, Freakazoid. Your caterpillars are splendid.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Driver: I hope you'll be sensible now, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Ash: I'll try.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash and he puffed slowly away.

Alex's Ghostly Trick

  • (Noctowl hoots twice)
  • (Ghostly air horn blows)
  • Alex: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Ash: Alex what are you talking about?
  • Alex: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Ash and Jackie: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash and Jackie.
  • Alex: He didn't say, oh it makes my feet wobble to think of it.
  • Ash: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're just a silly little boy. I'm not scared.
  • Alex: Ash didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Alex was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Alex knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Alex: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (A loud crash is heard as Alex hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Alex broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Alex's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Alex, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Alex chuckled.
  • Alex: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Ash. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little boy.
  • George Carlin: Jackie promised to help. Ash was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Jackie: Alex's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Jackie.
  • Ash: Poor boy.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Jackie: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Ash: Out with it, Jackie, I can't wait all evening.
  • Jackie: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: It looked like Alex's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Ash: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Jackie. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear a loud brake sound)
  • Alex: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Alex.
  • Jackie: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Alex: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Alex all along)
  • Ash: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Ash.
  • Ash: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Suzy and Pietra.
  • George Carlin: It was morning when Ash returned.
  • Alex: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Alex.
  • Ash: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I knew you be sad about Alex, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (A ghostly whistle is heard)
  • Ash: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Alex was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Alex: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Jackie: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Jackie.
  • Jackie: ...that our Ash was just seen a ghost!

Mel Blake

  • George Carlin: Mel Blake is a Hoop Kid who works for the school company, arranging Beedrill in their sidings. She has black shoes hidden by sideplates just like Jackie's. Mel is young and full of her own ideas. She loves rearranging things too and began putting Jackie's Beedrill in different places every day. This made Jackie cross.
  • Jackie: Beedrill...
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Jackie: ...should be where you want them when you want them.
  • Mel: Fiddlesticks!
  • George Carlin: Said Mel and flounced away. At last, Jackie lost patience.
  • Jackie: I can't waste time playing "Hunt The Beedrill" with you. Take them yourself.
  • George Carlin: Mel was pleased. Taking Beedrill made her feel important. At the station, Ken oiled up to her.
  • Mel: Jackie's an old fusspot.
  • George Carlin: She complained. Ken sense trouble and was delighted.
  • Mel: Jackie says only steam characters can manage Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Continued Mel.
  • Ken: How observe.
  • George Carlin: Squirmed Ken.
  • Ken: Depend upon it, Mel. Anything steam characters can do, we bad guys can do better.
  • George Carlin: Ken knew nothing about Beedrill, but Mel didn't realize this. Jackie's line crosses the main road behind the station, and for a short way follows a farm lane. Frosty weather makes the mud rock-hard and very slippery. Jackie stops before reaching the lane. His fireman halts the traffic at the level crossing and then he sets off again. By using the heavy cars to push him along, he has no trouble with the frosty rails and the lane and across the road. It is the only thing safe thing to do in this kind of weather. Jackie warned Mel and told her just what to do.
  • Mel: I can manage, thank you.
  • George Carlin: She replied.
  • Mel: I'm not an old fusspot like you.
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill were tired of being pushed around by Mel.
  • Beedrill: It's slippery.
  • George Carlin: They whispered.
  • Beedrill: Let's push her around instead. On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Mel took no notice. Instead, she brought the Beedrill carefully down the lane and stopped at the level crossing. All traffic halted.
  • Mel: One of the headlamp for fusspot Jackie.
  • George Carlin: Chortled Mel. But Mel had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Jackie's advice, she had given the Beedrill the chance they wanted.
  • Beedrill: Hold back! Hold back!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Mel: Grrrr up!
  • George Carlin: Ordered Mel. The Beedrill just laughed and her feet spun headlessly. Workmen sanded the rails and dig away the frozen mud, but it was no good. Everyone was impatient.
  • Mel: Grrrr agh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Mel. Jackie was in the yard when he heard the news.
  • Jackie: I warned her.
  • George Carlin: He fumed.
  • Jackie's Driver: She's young yet.
  • George Carlin: Soothed his driver.
  • Jackie's Driver: And...
  • Jackie: She can manage her Beedrill herself.
  • George Carlin: Interrupted Jackie.
  • Jackie's Driver: They're your Beedrill really.
  • George Carlin: His driver replied.
  • Jackie's Driver: Mel is suppose to stay at the quarry if Steven finds out.
  • Jackie: Mmmm, yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie thoughtfully. He and his driver agreed that'll be best to help Mel after all. An angry farmer was telling Mel just what she could do with her train.
  • Jackie: Having trouble Mel?
  • George Carlin: Chortled Jackie.
  • Jackie: I am surprised.
  • Mel: Grrrr osh!
  • George Carlin: Said Mel. With much puffing and wheels slipped, Jackie pushed Mel and the Beedrill back. The hard work made his fire burn fiercely, and his fireman spread hot cinders to melt the frozen mud. At last they finished.
  • Jackie: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Called Jackie.
  • Jackie: You'll managed now, I expect.
  • George Carlin: Mel didn't answer. She took the Beedrill to the sheds, and scuttled home to the quarry as quickly as she could.

Shaggy and The Donphan

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum walked happily along his route with Suzy and Pietra. Steven was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch.
  • Steven: Well done, Ash. You're right on time and really reliable.
  • Ash: Thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Ash.
  • Suzy and Pietra: Ooh, right on time and really reliable.
  • George Carlin: Hummed the girls. But the big characters were not feeling cheerful at all.
  • Shaggy: Where's Alex?
  • George Carlin: Mumbled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: He suppose to fetch our coaches.
  • Raimundo: We get no rest.
  • George Carlin: Complained Raimundo. He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Shaggy.
  • Raimundo: What's the matter, Shaggy? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead.
  • Shaggy: I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Anyway, you looked silly enough to be a clown you should join the circus.
  • Alex: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Alex.
  • Alex: So you heard the news?
  • Terry: What news?
  • Alex: About the circus.
  • Raimundo: Alex, what are you talking about?
  • Alex: The circus has arrived.
  • George Carlin: Explained Alex.
  • Alex: I've been shunting special Beedrill. Steven need your help too.
  • George Carlin: The characters soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Terry and Shaggy were cross all over again when Raimundo got to pull the train away. A little later Steven returned.
  • Steven: Come along, Shaggy. A tunnel has blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate.
  • Shaggy: Pushing Beedrill, pushing Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Shaggy. They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside. It was very dark and quiet. But not for long.
  • (Donphan trumpeting)
  • Workmen: Help!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the workmen and they ran out.
  • (The Workmen race out of the tunnel)
  • Workman: We started to dig at the block but it grunted and moved.
  • George Carlin: One said.
  • Foreman: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Workman: It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again.
  • Foreman: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said the foreman.
  • Foreman: I'll ride in the Beedrill and Shaggy shall push it out.
  • Shaggy: Weesh!
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain but this was worse. Something big and alive was inside.
  • Shaggy: Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in.
  • Driver: Neither do I.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: But we must clear the line.
  • Henry: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Shaggy. Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong it began to push the train backwards. Out of the tunnel came Henry, then the cars and last of all a large cross Donphan.
  • (Donphan trumpeting)
  • Foreman: Well I never!
  • George Carlin: Cried the foreman. The workmen gave him some cake.
  • (Donphan trumpeting)
  • George Carlin: He drank three buckets of water and it was just about to drink another when Shaggy let off steam.
  • (Donphan trumpets)
  • George Carlin: Cried the Donphan. Water went all over Shaggy. Poor Shaggy! The Donphan and his keeper was so reunited, but Shaggy was most upset.
  • Shaggy: A Donphan pushed me! A Donphan hooshed me!
  • George Carlin: That night, he told the other characters all about it. Terry and Raimundo felt sorry for Shaggy, but still teased him.
  • Terry: First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?
  • Ash: Never mind, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Ash.
  • Shaggy: I think you are brave today, and really reliable too.

Alex's Promise

  • George Carlin: Every summer, the land of YTV is very busy. Holidaymakers love to sight see. When the weather is fine, there is no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains, others like the valleys. Children love the seaside. One morning, Ash was strolling along the line that runs by the coast. His two girls, Suzy and Pietra, were packed with children going to the beach. Everyone was happy. Alex was taking some Beedrill to the Cartoon University.
  • Alex: Hello, Ash. You look cheerful. I wish I can take children today instead of Beedrill.
  • Ash: They're in the vicar's Sunday school.
  • George Carlin: Explained Ash.
  • Ash: I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home.
  • Alex: Of course I will.
  • George Carlin: Promised Alex. Later, Alex saw Superman.
  • Superman: Sorry, Alex. Can't talk. I'm on high alert.
  • Alex: Why?
  • Superman: Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Might how you go, Alex.
  • Alex: Huh.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Alex.
  • Alex: As long I got rails to run on, I can go anywhere and any weather anyhow. Goodbye.
  • Kevin: Be careful.
  • George Carlin: Warned Kevin.
  • Kevin: There's a storm coming.
  • Alex: A promise is a promise.
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: No matter what the weather.
  • George Carlin: The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead. Suzy and Pietra were glad when Alex arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Alex's boiler.
  • Alex: Ugh!
  • George Carlin: He shivered and thought of his nice dry shed. Alex struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside. The river was rising fast.
  • Alex: I wish I could see, I wish I could see!
  • George Carlin: Complained Alex as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead.
  • (Alex falls into the water and inside him, the fire gets sloshed)
  • Alex: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Alex.
  • Alex: The water's sloshing my fire!
  • George Carlin: Alex's driver and fireman had to find some more firewood.
  • Fireman: I'll have some of your floor boards, please.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman to the conductor.
  • Conductor: I only swept the floor this morning.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the conductor and he still help. Soon, Alex's fire was burning well. He felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Superman.
  • Alex: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: Superman's coming to laugh at me.
  • George Carlin: Something floated onto Alex's boiler.
  • Alex: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Explained Alex.
  • Alex: He needed throw things.
  • Driver: It's a parachute!
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: Superman's dropping hot drinks from us.
  • Alex: Thank you, Superman.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Alex.
  • Superman: Good to be at service.
  • George Carlin: Replied Superman as buzzed away. The water lapped Alex's feet. Alex was losing steam again, but he plunged bravely on.
  • Alex: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Alex: I promised.
  • George Carlin: He meant one more big effort, and at last exhausted by triumph, he brought the train home.
  • Ash: Well done, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Ash.
  • Ash: You kept your promise, dispite everything!
  • George Carlin: Steven arrived in Superman. First, he thanked the men, then Alex.
  • Steven: Superman told me you are a wizard. He said he can beat you at somethings, but not a been on submarine. I don't know what you get onto sometimes, but I do know that you're a really useful wrestler.
  • Alex: Oh sir.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Alex happily.

Raimundo Goes Buzz Buzz

  • George Carlin: Heathcliff the Cat enjoyed his work at the Cartoon University. Birds were singing and apples were ripening on the trees. It was a splendid day.
  • Raimundo: Hello, Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Heathcliff: Oh I am.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff.
  • Raimundo: What's that noise?
  • Heathcliff: It's the bees.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Donkey Kong hummed in.
  • Donkey Kong: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • Donkey Kong: Goodbye, Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Called Donkey Kong and set off to see Virgil at the next station. Bumpty and Raphael were busy arranging Beedrill. But they scampered off when they saw Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Kevin soon put a stop in their games.
  • Virgil: Kevin is the only one who can keep Bumpty and Raphael in order.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil.
  • Virgil: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • Donkey Kong: A good name.
  • George Carlin: Replied Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo bustled in.
  • Raimundo: What's that, Virgil? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Virgil: His name is Donkey Kong, and he didn't. We...
  • Raimundo: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Virgil: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Virgil. The next morning, Raimundo arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • George Carlin: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. Raimundo heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to Raimundo. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • Raimundo: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Raimundo. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: The bee thought Raimundo had burnt him on purpose. So it stung Raimundo right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • Raimundo: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to Raimundo's warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo's reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for Raimundo. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • George Carlin: Later that evening, Raimundo was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you Raimundo the Red-Nosed boy.
  • George Carlin: Everyone laughed even Raimundo. But instead, they decided to call Raimundo "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.

All At Sea

  • George Carlin: Alex and Virgil like working at the Cartoon University. On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be. The big ships bring passengers. Cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Virgil and Alex puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside. One morning, Virgil and Alex noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky.
  • Virgil: I wish I could sail to faraway lands.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Virgil.
  • Alex: Characters can't go sailing.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Alex.
  • Alex: Because characters can't float.
  • George Carlin: Virgil still had his dreams. Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted.
  • Superman: Wakey, wakey.
  • George Carlin: Hovered Superman.
  • Virgil: I'm looking at the boats.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil.
  • Superman: That's the regatta. Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case I'm needed.
  • Virgil: Do you go to the horizon?
  • George Carlin: Asked Virgil.
  • Superman: Yes and beyond.
  • Alex: I didn't know there was a beyond.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Alex.
  • Virgil: Do you go to other places at sea?
  • George Carlin: Continued Virgil.
  • Superman: Certainly. I can land on ships you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Virgil sighed. He went on talking about the regatta all day. Alex lost patience.
  • Alex: Well, Virgil, I rather had my wheels on solid ground. Our rails can take us to all the places we can ever wish to see.
  • (We hear a siren wailing)
  • Virgil's Driver: That's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Called Virgil's driver.
  • Virgil's Driver: I'll check with the harbourmaster.
  • George Carlin: He returned with bad news.
  • Virgil's Driver: A man taking part in the regatta had hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Superman's bringing him now. Come on.
  • (Virgil hurries to the scene just in time to see Superman land)
  • Superman: Good to see you again, Virgil.
  • George Carlin: Whirred Superman as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety.
  • Superman: My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise I will take this gentleman to hospital myself. Must fly. Goodbye.
  • George Carlin: Virgil set off on his journey. Soon he was steaming well and his wheels were thundering along the track. When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone and Sonic got ready to take him to the hospital.
  • Sonic: You look splendid flying along the line, Virgil.
  • George Carlin: Bloat Sonic.
  • Sonic: No wonder they called you a teenager.
  • Virgil: Thank you, Sonic. Alex's right.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Virgil: Characters are happiest when their feet are firmly on the rails.
  • George Carlin: That night, Alex and Virgil stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm and the sea calmed.
  • Virgil: There's a shooting star.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Alex: Don't be daft.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Alex.
  • Alex: It's Superman. Look, he's hovering overhead.
  • George Carlin: Something fluttered down towards Virgil. His driver caught it.
  • Virgil's Driver: It's a flag from the regatta. Superman's giving it to you as a present, Virgil.
  • Virgil: That was kind of Superman.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Virgil.
  • Virgil: He may have whirly arms instead of wheels. But he seems to understand just what a character needs.
  • George Carlin: Virgil still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon. But I think he knows that, sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?
