A Surprise For Mac is a Zak The Saturday Kid and Friends episode.


Mac is feeling bored one day, with only the silly Beedrill for company. After bringing them to the yard, he meets Courage at the crossing, then Finn who was with Buttercup. Later, Mac collected empty Beedrill at the top of the hill when a rope snaps. In a time lapsed style, he, Doc and Courage give chase. After the Beedrill get secured, Courage tells Mac that the chase is exciting. Mac hopes he can never be surprised.

  • Mac was working in the coal mines. He was feeling bored and lonely with only the silly Beedrill for company.
  • Driver: Cheer up, Mac.
    Said his driver.
  • Driver: Doc has told me that we must be here again tomorrow. We've just got to get the best of a bad situation.
  • Mac: I'll try, sir.
    Sighed Mac. When he arrived, the Beedrill started teasing him.
  • Beedrill: Mac, Mac, green and small, he's no use to us at all, around the yards he'll puff and blow but on the hills, he's oh so slow!
  • Mac: Be quiet!
  • Then he took the Beedrill to the coal hopper to be loaded up. Mac still felt glum as he puffed up to the top of the hill. He parked his Beedrill and then set off back down the mines. Not even a cheerful sight of Courage could bring a smile to Mac's face.
  • Courage: What's the matter, Mac?
  •  Asked Courage.
  • Mac: Nothing exciting ever happens. That's the matter.
  • Sighed Mac.
  • Mac: It's just coal coal coal and Beedrill Beedrill Beedrill. I'm bored bored bored.
  • Courage: Excitement is surprising.
  • Observed Courage.
  • Courage: You never know when it'll happen. Otherwise, it wouldn't be exciting. Toodle peep.
  • Mac: It would be surprising if something surprising happened.
  •  Muttered Mac. Later, he stopped by the water tower for a drink.
  • Finn: Hello, Mac. How are things?
  •  Asked Finn.
  • Mac: Boring.
  • Finn: Well, why not have a few spins on a turntable? You'll like that.
  •  Said Finn.
  • Mac: I think it just make me feel giddy.
  • Mac's driver interrupted.
  • Driver: Stop gossiping, you two.
  • Finn: Cheer up, Mac. You soon know about cars than any other character. That'll be exciting.
  •  Called Finn. The Beedrill were still grumpy and there was more of them then ever.
  • Beedrill: You much too small to pull one of us. We want another boy who would be struggling at the hill all night! All night, all right, you can puff and blow, but on that hill, you're still to slow!
  • Mac: S-S-Slow yourself!
  • Stuttered Mac.
  • Beedrill: Temper, temper.
  • Giggled the Beedrill. Mac decided to simply carry on.
  • Driver: Go to it, Mac.
  • Shouted his driver. The Beedrill were still joking.
  • Beedrill: Too slow, more power, here all night, tomorrow too!
  • Mac: Be quiet!
  • Said Mac. Then there was trouble. A coupling broke.
  • Beedrill: Surprise, surprise! Catch us if you can!
  • Mac: Oh, no!
  • Cried Mac. Mac's driver phoned the signalman and the yard forman told Doc what was happening.
  • Yard Foreman: They're heading for the big hill! It'll slow them down but they roll back again right into the village.
  • Doc: Then we'll just have to stop them, won't we?
  • The chase was on. As they approach the hill, they overtook the Beedrill. Doc and Courage screeched to a halt, and waited for them near the top. The hill slow the Beedrill right down to a stand still. Then the men quickly put wooden blocks behind their wheels so they couldn't roll backwards. The Beedrill were now secured. Just then, Mac arrived.
  • Courage: Well, what do you think of that?
  • Joked Courage.
  • Courage: A good chase is always exciting.
  • Mac: It was certainly a surprise.
  • Decided Mac.
  • Mac: And you are right, Courage. A really useful boy should never be surprise by surprise.
