Ash Gets Tricked

  • George Carlin: Ash is a Pokemon Trainer, who lives at the Cartoon University on the land of YTV. He's a cheeky little trainer with black and white shoes, a red cap, a black hair and blue jeans. He's a fussy little character too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big characters can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big characters can go on rest. Ash thinks no character works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Terry the biggest and proudest character of all. Ash likes to tease Terry with his whistle.
  • Ash: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • George Carlin: One day after pulling the big express, Terry had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Ash came up in his cheeky way.
  • Ash: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • George Carlin: And off he ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Terry thought how he can back at Ash. One morning, Ash wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Ash started.
  • Ash: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • George Carlin: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Terry was waiting.
  • Terry: Hurry up, you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Ash: Hurry up yourself.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash. Terry the proud character began making his plan to teach Ash a lesson for teasing him. Almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Terry reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Terry: Get in quickly, please!
  • George Carlin: He whistled. Ash usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Terry start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Ash. Terry's chance had come.
  • Terry: Come on, come on!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Terry to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Ash, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Ash: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Terry: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Terry.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the coaches. Poor Ash was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his feet hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Ash: I shall never be the same again.
  • George Carlin: He thought sadly.
  • Ash: My feet will be quite worn out.
  • George Carlin: At last, they stopped at the station. Ash was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Terry: Well, little Ash.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Terry.
  • Terry: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • George Carlin: Poor Ash couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink.
  • Ash: Maybe I don't have to tease Terry to feel important.
  • George Carlin: Ash thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.

Come Out Shaggy

  • George Carlin: Once a character taking some Arcanine was afraid of a few drops of rain. It went into a tunnel and squeaked through its funnel, and wouldn't come out again. The character's name is Shaggy. His driver and fireman argued with him, but he would not move.
  • Shaggy: The rain would spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes.
  • George Carlin: He said. The conductor blew his whistle till he had no more breath, and waved his flag till his arms ached, but Shaggy still stayed in the tunnel and blew steam at him.
  • Shaggy: I'm not going to spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes for you.
  • George Carlin: Then, along came Steven, the man of charge of all the characters on the land of YTV.
  • Steven: We will pull you out.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. But Shaggy only blew steam at him. Everyone pulled except Steven.
  • Steven: Because...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: ...my doctor has forbidden me to pull.
  • George Carlin: But still, Shaggy stayed in the tunnel. Then, they tried pushing from the other end. Steven said...
  • Steven: One, two, three, push!
  • George Carlin: ...but he didn't help.
  • Steven: My doctor has forbbiden me to push.
  • George Carlin: He said. They pushed, and pushed, and pushed, but still, Shaggy stayed in the tunnel. At last, Ash came along. The conductor waved his red flag and stopped him. Everyone argued with Virgil.
  • Everyone: Look, it has stopped raining.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Shaggy: Yes, but it will began again soon.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: And what will become with green paint with red stripes then?
  • George Carlin: Ash pushed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could, but still Shaggy stayed in the tunnel. Eventually, even Steven gave up.
  • Steven: We shall take away your rails...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: ...and leave you here until you're ready to come out of the tunnel.
  • George Carlin: They took up the old rails, and built a wall in front of Shaggy, so the other characters wouldn't bump into him. All Shaggy could do was to watch the trains rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad, because he thought no one would see his lovely green paint and red stripes again. As time went on, Kevin and Terry would often pass by. Kevin would say...
  • Kevin: Peep, peep! Hello!
  • George Carlin: And Terry would say...
  • Terry: Boop, boop, boop! Serves you right!
  • George Carlin: Poor Shaggy had no steam to answer. His fire had gone out. Soot and dirt from the tunnel had spoilt his lovely green paint with red stripes anyway. How long do you think Shaggy would stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain, but then decides to journey out again?

Shaggy To The Rescue

  • George Carlin: Terry always pull the big express. He was proud of being the only character strong enough to do so. It was full of important people like Steven and Terry will see how fast he can go.
  • Terry: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock, tricktey-trock!
  • George Carlin: Said the coaches. In a minute, Terry will see the tunnel where Shaggy stood bricked up and lonely.
  • Shaggy: Oh, dear. Why did I worried about rain spoiling my lovely coat of paint? I'd like to come out of the tunnel.
  • George Carlin: But Shaggy didn't know how to ask.
  • Terry: I'm going to boop boop at Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: He was almost there when... "Wheesh!" And there was proud Terry going slower and slower in a cloud of steam. His driver stopped the train.
  • Terry: What has happen to me?
  • George Carlin: Asked Terry.
  • Terry: I feel so weak.
  • Driver: You burst your safety valves.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: You can't pull the train anymore.
  • Terry: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: We were going so nicely too. And look, there's Shaggy laughing at me.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to see Terry.
  • Steven: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: These big characters are always causing me trouble. Send for another character at once.
  • George Carlin: While the conductor went to find one, they uncoupled Terry who had enough puff to slink on the siding out of the way. Kevin was the only character left.
  • Kevin: I'll come and try.
  • Terry: Hmph.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: That's no use. Kevin can't push the train.
  • George Carlin: The kind Kevin puffed and pushed and pushed and puffed but he couldn't move the heavy coaches.
  • Terry: I told you so.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Why not let Shaggy try?
  • Steven: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: I will. Will you help pull this train, Shaggy?
  • Shaggy: Oh yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy. When Shaggy had got up steam, he puffed out. He was dirty and covered with cobwebs.
  • Shaggy: Oh, I'm stiffed, I'm stiffed.
  • George Carlin: He groaned.
  • Steven: Have a run to ease your joints and find a turntable.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. When Shaggy came back, he felt much better. Then they coupled him up.
  • Kevin: Peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: I'm ready.
  • Virgil: Peep peep peep.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: So am I. Pull hard, we'll do it! Pull hard, we'll do it!
  • George Carlin: They puffed together.
  • Kevin and Shaggy: We've done it together! We've done it together!
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin and Shaggy.
  • Coaches: You've done it hurray! You've done it hurray!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches. Everyone was excited. Steven leaned out on the window to wave at Kevin and Shaggy. But the train was going so fast, that his hat blew off into a field where a goat ated for tea. They never stopped til they came to the station at the end of the line. The passengers all said thank you, and Steven promised Shaggy a new coat of paint. One their way home, Kevin and Shaggy helped Terry back to the shed. All three characters are now great friends. Shaggy doesn't mind the rain now. He knows that the best way to keep his paint nicely not to run into tunnels, but to ask his driver to rub him down when the day's work was over.

A Big Day For Ash

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum was grumbling to the other characters.
  • Ash: I spent my time pulling coaches about ready for you to take out on journeys.
  • George Carlin: The other characters laughed.
  • Ash: Why can't I pull passenger trains too?
  • Terry: You're too impatient.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Terry: You'd be sure to leave something behind.
  • Ash: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'll show you.
  • George Carlin: One night, he and Shaggy were alone. Shaggy was ill. The men worked hard, but he didn't get better. He felt just as bad next morning. Shaggy usually pull the first train and Ash had to get his coaches ready.
  • Ash: If Shaggy is ill.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Ash: Perhaps I shall pull his train.
  • George Carlin: Ash ran off to find the coaches.
  • Ash: Come along, come along.
  • George Carlin: He fussed.
  • Coaches: There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time!
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. Ash took them to the platform and wanted to run round at once. But his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Driver: Don't be impatient, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Ash waited and waited. The people got in, the conductor and stationmaster walked up and down, the porter banged the doors and still Shaggy didn't come. Ash got more and more excited. Steven came to see what was the matter, and the conductor and stationmaster told him about Virgil.
  • Steven: Find another character.
  • George Carlin: He ordered.
  • Both: There's only Ash.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Steven: You'll have to do it then, Ash. Be quick now.
  • George Carlin: So Ash ran round to the front and back down on the coaches ready to start.
  • Driver: Let's not be impatient.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll wait till everything was ready.
  • George Carlin: But Ash was too excited to listen. What happened then, no one knows. Perhaps they forgot to couple Ash to the train, or perhaps the Driver pulled the leather by mistake. Anyhow, Ash started without his coaches. As the pass the signal tower, men waved and shouted, but he didn't stop.
  • Ash: They're waving because I'm such a splendid character.
  • George Carlin: He thought importantly.
  • Ash: Shaggy says it's hard to pull trains, but I think it's easy. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, pretending to be like Terry.
  • Ash: People had never seen me pulling a train before. It's nice of them to wave.
  • George Carlin: And he whistled.
  • Ash: Peep peep! Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Then he came to a signal at danger.
  • Ash: Bother!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Ash: I must stop, and I was going so nicely too. What a nuisance signals are.
  • George Carlin: He blew an angry "Peep peep!" on his whistle. The signalman ran up.
  • Signalman: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Signalman: What are you doing here?
  • Ash: I'm pulling the train.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Can't you see?
  • Signalman: Where are your coaches then?
  • George Carlin: Ash looked back.
  • Ash: Why bless me.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ash: If we hadn't leave them behind.
  • Signalman: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: You better go quickly and fetch them.
  • George Carlin: Poor Ash was so sad he nearly cried.
  • Driver: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's go back quickly and try again.
  • George Carlin: At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Steven what a bad railway it was. But when Ash came back, they saw how sad he was and couldn't be cross. He was coupled to the train, and this time he really pulled it. Afterwards, the other characters laughed at Ash and said...
  • Shaggy: Look! There's Ash, who wanted to pull the train, but forgot about the coaches.
  • George Carlin: But Ash had already learned, not to make the same mistake again.

Trouble For Ash

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum wouldn't stop being a nuisance. Night after night, he kept the other characters awake.
  • Ash: I'm tired of pushing coaches. I wanna see the world.
  • George Carlin: The other characters didn't take much notice, for Ash was a little character with a long tongue. But one night, Kevin came to the shed. He was a kind little character and felt sorry for Ash.
  • Kevin: I've got some Beedrill to take home tomorrow. If you take them instead of me, I'll push coaches in the yard.
  • Ash: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: That would be nice.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, Kevin and Ash asked their drivers, and when they said "yes", Ash ran off happily to find Beedrill. Now the Beedrill were silly and noisy. They talked a lot and don't attend to what they are doing. And I'm sorry to say they play tricks on a character who is not used to them. Kevin knew all about the Beedrill. He warned Ash to be careful but Ash was too excited to listen. The shunter fastened the coupling and when the signal dropped, Ash was ready. The conductor blew his whistle.
  • Ash: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: Answered Ash and started off. But the Beedrill weren't ready.
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: Wait, Ash, wait!
  • George Carlin: But Ash wouldn't wait.
  • Ash: Come on come on.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Beedrill: All right, don't fuss! All right, don't fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the Beedrill. Ash began going faster and faster.
  • Ash: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: He whistled, as he rush through Shaggy's tunnel.
  • Ash: Hurry, hurry.
  • George Carlin: Called Ash. He was feeling very proud of himself. But the Beedrill grew crosser and crosser. At last Ash slowed down as he came to Terry's Hill.
  • Ash's Driver: Steady, now, steady.
  • George Carlin: Warned the driver, as he reach the top. He began to put on the brakes.
  • Ash: We're stopping, we're stopping!
  • George Carlin: Called Ash.
  • Beedrill: No, no, no!
  • George Carlin: Answered the Beedrill bumping them to each other.
  • Beedrill: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: Before the driver could stop them they had pushed Ash down the hill and were rattling and laughing behind them. Poor Ash tried hard to stop them from making him go too fast.
  • Ash: Stop pushing, stop pushing!
  • George Carlin: He hissed. But the Beedrill took no notice.
  • Beedrill: Go on! Go on!
  • George Carlin: They giggled in their silly way.
  • Ash: There's the station! Oh dear, what shall I do?
  • George Carlin: Cried Ash. They rattled straight through and swerved into the goods yard. Ash shut his eyes.
  • Ash: I must stop!
  • George Carlin: When he opened his eyes, he saw he had stopped just in front of the buffers. There watching him was...Steven.
  • Steven: What are you doing here, Ash?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Ash: I brought Kevin's Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Ash answered.
  • Steven: Why did you come so fast?
  • Ash: I didn't mean to. I was pushed.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Steven: You've got a lot to learn about Beedrill, Ash. After pushing them about here for a few weeks you'll know almost as much about them as Kevin. Then you'll be a Really Useful Trainer.

Ash Saves The Day

  • George Carlin: Every day, Steven came to the University to catch his son.
  • Steven: Hello.
  • George Carlin: He always said to Ash.
  • Steven. Don't let the silly Beedrill tease you. Remember, you have an important job as a special helper in the train yard.
  • George Carlin: There were lots of Beedrill and Ash worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small coach and two strange things his driver called cranes.
  • Ash's Driver: That's the breakdown train.
  • George Carlin: He told Ash.
  • Ash's Driver: The cranes are for lifting heavy things like engines and coaches and Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: One day, Ash was in the yard. Suddenly he heard an character whistling.
  • Raimundo: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: A freight train came rushing through much too fast. The character was Raimundo and he was frightened. His brake blocks were on fire.
  • Raimundo: They're pushing me, they're pushing me.
  • George Carlin: He panted.
  • Beedrill: On! On!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill. Still whistling...
  • Raimundo: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Poor Raimundo disappeared.
  • Ash: I like to teach those Beedrill a lesson.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash Ketchum.
  • (We hear an alarm ringing)
  • George Carlin: Soon came the alarm.
  • Signalman: Raimundo is off the line. The breakdown train quickly.
  • George Carlin: Ash was coupled on and off they went. Ash worked his hardest.
  • Ash: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He wasn't predenting to be like Terry. He really meant it.
  • Ash: Bother those Beedrill and their tricks. I hope poor Raimundo isn't hurt.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo's driver and fireman were feeling him all over to see if he was hurt.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • Driver and Fireman: Never mind, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Driver and Fireman: It was those silly Beedrill and your old wooden brakes that caused the accident.
  • George Carlin: Ash pushed the breakdown train alongside. Then he pulled away the unhurt Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Oh, dear. Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: They groaned.
  • Ash: Serves you right, serves you right.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash. He was hard at work puffing backwards and forwards all afternoon.
  • Ash: This'll teach you a lesson, this'll teach you a lesson.
  • George Carlin: He told the Beedrill. And they answered...
  • Beedrill: Yes it will, yes it will.
  • George Carlin: They left the broken Beedrill. Then with two cranes they put Raimundo back on the rails.
  • (The cranes lift Raimundo away from the field. A surprised Ash watches as Raimundo is put back to the rails)
  • George Carlin: He tried to move, but he couldn't so Ash helped him back to the shed. Steven was waiting anxiously for them.
  • Steven: Well, Ash.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: I heard all about it and I'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful trainer. Raimundo shall have some proper brakes and a new coat of paint and you shall have a branch line all to yourself.
  • Ash: Oh thank you, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash. Now Ash is as happy as can be. He has a branch line and two coaches called Suzy and Pietra. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day. He is never lonely. Kevin and Shaggy stop quite often and tell him the news. Terry is always in a hurry but never forgets to say...
  • Terry: Boop Boop.
  • George Carlin: And Ash always whistles...
  • Ash: Peep Peep.
  • George Carlin: In return.

Ash Goes Fishing

  • George Carlin: When Ash strolled along with route, he always looked forward to something special: the sight of the river. As they rumble over the bridge, he would see people fishing. Ash often wanted to stay and watch, but his driver said...
  • Driver: No! What would Steven say if we were late?
  • George Carlin: Every time he met another character he say...
  • Ash: I want to fish.
  • George Carlin: But they all had the same answer.
  • Raimundo: Characters don't go fishing.
  • Ash: Silly stick in the muds.
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash. One day, he stopped as usual to take him water at the station by the river. Out of order.
  • Ash: Bother!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'm thirsty.
  • Driver: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll get some water from the river.
  • George Carlin: They found a bucket and some rope and went to the bridge. Then the driver left the bucket down to the water. The bucket was old and have five holes, so they had to fill it, pull it up, and empty it into Ash's tank as quickly as they could several times over. They finished at last.
  • Ash: That's good, that's good.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash and Suzy and Pietra ran happily behind. Suddenly, Ash began to feel a pain in his boiler. Steam began to hiss with his safety valve in an alarming way.
  • Driver: There's too much steam!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Ash.
  • Ash: I'm going to burst! I'm going to burst!
  • George Carlin: They damped down his fire and struggled on.
  • Ash: I've got such a pain, I've got such a pain!
  • George Carlin: Ash hissed. They stopped just outside the last station, uncoupled Suzy and Pietra and ran Ash, who was still hissing fit to burst, on a siding right out of the way. Then, while the conductor telephoned for an engine inspector, the driver found notice in large letters, which he hung on Ash in front and behind. Danger: Keep Away. Soon, the inspector and Steven arrived.
  • Inspector: Cheer up, Ash.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Inspector: We'll soon put you right.
  • George Carlin: The driver told them what had happened.
  • Inspector: So the feed pipe is blocked.
  • George Carlin: Said the inspector.
  • Inspector: I'll just look in the tanks.
  • George Carlin: He climbed up and peered in, then he came down.
  • Inspector: Excuse me, sir, please look in the tank and tell me what you see.
  • Steven: Certainly, inspector.
  • George Carlin: Replied Steven. He clambered up, looked in and nearly fell off in surprise.
  • Steven: Inspector.
  • George Carlin: He whispered.
  • Steven: Can you see fish?
  • (Ash is horrified upon hearing this)
  • Steven: Gracious goodness me! How did the fish get there, driver?
  • Driver: We must have fished them from the river with our bucket.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash's driver.
  • Steven: Well, Ash, so you and your driver had been fishing. But fish don't suit you. We must get them out.
  • George Carlin: They all took turns and fishing into Ash's tank while Steven looked down and told them how to do it. When they had caught all the fish, they had a lovely picnic supper of fish and chips.
  • Steven: Mmm. That was good.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: But fish don't suit you, Ash, so you mustn't do it again.
  • Ash: No, sir, I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash sadly.
  • Ash: Characters don't go fishing. It's too uncomfortable.

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.

Double Trouble

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the land of YTV. Ash Ketchum's smart clothes sparkled in the sunshine, as he strolled happily along his route with Suzy and Pietra. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Alex: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Alex.
  • Alex: You look splendid.
  • Ash: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only proper color for a trainer.
  • Jackie: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Alex: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Alex.
  • Ash: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only color for a really useful trainer. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Alex said no more. He just grinned at Jackie. Later, Ash was resting when Alex arrived. A large hopper was loading his Beedrill full of coal. Ash was still being cheeky.
  • Ash: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Ash: Watch out with those silly Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the Beedrill.
  • Ash: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Ash.
  • Ash: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Ash: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Ash.
  • Ash: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Alex was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Ash's smart clothes was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Alex: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Alex.
  • Alex: You don't look really useful now, Ash. You look really disgraceful.
  • Ash: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Ash.
  • Ash: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Ash that he wasn't it time for his next train. Jackie had to take Suzy and Pietra.
  • Suzy: Poor Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Suzy to Pietra. They were most upset. Ash was grumpy in the shed that night. Jackie thought it made a great joke, but Alex was cross with Ash for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Alex: Fancy a really useful blue trainer like Ash becoming a disgrace to Steven's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Ash was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Alex bring his Beedrill from the junction. The Beedrill were heavy and Alex was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Alex found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Alex: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Alex.
  • Alex: Help!
  • (Alex falls into the deep coal)
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Alex was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Ash to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Ash: Now Alex has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two characters made up their quarrel.
  • Alex: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Alex.
  • Alex: You do know that, don't you?
  • Ash: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.

A Miltank On The Line

  • George Carlin: Kevin was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty Beedrill to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Kevin was heading for trouble.
  • Kevin: Come on! Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the Beedrill. Kevin puffed and clanked, the Beedrill rattled and screamed. Some Miltank were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Kevin clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some Beedrill were left behind.
  • (Miltank mooing)
  • George Carlin: Kevin felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to Beedrill.
  • Kevin: Bother those Beedrill!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Kevin: Why can't they come quietly?
  • George Carlin: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Terry and Shaggy heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Terry: Fancy allowing Beedrill to break your train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • George Carlin: Old Jackie was cross.
  • Jackie: You couldn't help it, Kevin. They've never met Miltank. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • George Carlin: Some days later, Terry rushed through Kevin's Station.
  • Terry: Boop boop! Mind the Miltank! Hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Terry.
  • Pets: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled his pets. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Terry that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Terry's Driver: Whoa, Terry!
  • George Carlin: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Terry: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: It's only a Miltank! Shooh! Shooh!
  • George Carlin: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the Miltank wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Shaggy arrived.
  • Shaggy: What's this? A Miltank? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: Shaggy backed away nervously.
  • Shaggy: I don't want to hurt her.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, Shaggy's Conductor told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • George Carlin: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, looking for her mother. Alex will take her along.
  • George Carlin: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • Shaggy: Not a word.
  • Terry: Keep it secret.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Terry and Shaggy to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Kevin: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Kevin.
  • Kevin: Two big characters afraid of a Miltank.
  • Terry: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: We didn't want the poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what mean, my dear Kevin.
  • Kevin: Yes, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin. Terry felt somehow that Kevin "saw" only too well.

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.
  • Kevin: 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.

Alex Takes The Plunge

  • George Carlin: One day, Shaggy wanted to rest, but Alex was talking to some birds. He was telling them about the time he had brave bad weather to help Ash.
  • Alex: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Bumpty: Oh, Alex, you are brave.
  • Rikochet: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a character with determination.
  • Raphael: Tell us more, Alex.
  • Shaggy: What are you characters doing here?
  • George Carlin: Hissed Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: This shed is for Steven's characters. Go away. Silly things.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy snorted.
  • Alex: They're not silly.
  • George Carlin: Alex had been enjoying himself.
  • Shaggy: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to a character with determination. Huh.
  • Alex: Anyway.
  • George Carlin: Said cheeky Alex.
  • Alex: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • George Carlin: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Alex: Once a character taking some Arcanine was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Shaggy: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Shaggy. Ash was looking at the board on the key.
  • Ash: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ash: That's orders.
  • Alex: Why?
  • Ash: Danger means falling down something.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Alex: I can't see a mine.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Alex: Stupid board.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the Beedrill.
  • Alex: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill had never asked to bump a character before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Alex: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Alex.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill. Alex thought they were helping.
  • Alex: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the Beedrill will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • George Carlin: Every wise character knows that you cannot trust Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled, and bumped Alex's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Alex: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Said Alex, sliding pass the board. Alex was frantic.
  • Alex: That's enough!
  • (Alex falls into the water)
  • George Carlin: Alex was sunked.
  • Steven: You are a very disobeident kid.
  • George Carlin: Alex knew that voice.
  • Alex: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Steven: No, Alex, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Alex: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Alex. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Shaggy's freight train.
  • Shaggy: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Did you like the water?
  • Alex: No.
  • Shaggy: I am surprised. You need more determination, Alex. Water's nothing to a character with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • George Carlin: Alex is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.

Raimundo In A Mess

  • George Carlin: Jackie and Princess Kitana were enjoying their new job on the land of YTV, but they do look old fashioned and did need new paint. Raimundo was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • Raimundo: Yech! What dirty objects!
  • George Carlin: He would say. At last, Jackie lost patience.
  • Jackie: Raimundo
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Jackie: Why are you red?
  • Raimundo: I am a splendid boy.
  • George Carlin: Answered Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Jackie: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie earnestly.
  • Jackie: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be remind how the time the bootlace have been use to mend a hole in his coaches. At the end of the line, Raimundo left his coaches and got out to his next train. It was a slow freight, stopping at every station to pick up and set down Beedrill, Raimundo hated slow freight trains.
  • Raimundo: Dirty Beedrill from dirty sidings! Yech!
  • George Carlin: Starting an only a few, he picked up more and more Beedrill at each station till he had a long train. At first, the Beedrill behaved well, but Raimundo bumped them so crossly that they were determined to get back at him. Presently, they approached the top of Terry's Hill. Heavy freight trains halt here to set the brakes. Al had had an accident with Beedrill before and should have remembered this.
  • Driver: Wait, Raimundo, wait!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver, but Raimundo wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he would say to Jackie when they next met. The Beedrill's chance had come.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah! Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: They laughed, and banging their buffers they pushed him down the hill.
  • Beedrill: On, on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the Beedrill.
  • Raimundo: I've got to stop, I've got to stop!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Raimundo. Disaster lay ahead.
  • (Raimundo crashes into the tar wagons)
  • George Carlin: Something sticky splashed all over Raimundo. He had run into two tar wagons, and was black from smokebox to cab. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar wagons and some cars were all to pieces. Jackie and Alex were sent to help and came as quickly as they could.
  • Jackie: Look here, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Explained Jackie.
  • Jackie: Whatever is that dirty object?
  • Alex: That's Raimundo, didn't you know?
  • Jackie: It's Raimundo's shape.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: But Raimundo is a splendid boy and you'll never see his paint dirty.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo pretended he hadn't heard. Jackie and Alex cleared away the unhurt Beedrill and help Raimundo home. Steven met them.
  • Steven: Well done, Alex and Jackie.
  • George Carlin: He turned to Raimundo.
  • Steven: Fancy letting your Beedrill run away. I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen. You must be cleaned at once. Jackie shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Jackie: Please sir, can Kitana have one too?
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Steven: Certainly, Jackie.
  • Jackie: Oh thank you, sir. She will pleased.
  • George Carlin: All Raimundo could do as watch Jackie as he ran off happily with the news.

Sonic's Chase

  • George Carlin: One morning, Kevin was waiting to pick up passengers from Ash Ketchum.
  • Kevin: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Ash? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • George Carlin: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Ash. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Sonic the Hedgehog in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • George Carlin: He clambered down.
  • Sonic: Stop, stop! I've got Ash's passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Sonic, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Kevin was gone.
  • Sonic: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: Bother Ash's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Sonic: I'll catch Sonic or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Sonic: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Sonic as he reached the top.
  • Sonic: Oh, no! Kevin's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Sonic toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Sonic!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Sonic skitted into the yard.
  • Sonic: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Sonic. He was just in time to see Kevin puffed away.
  • Sonic: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Kevin. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Sonic and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Sonic chased after Kevin once more.
  • Pets: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the pets as Kevin snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Kevin: Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Kevin.
  • Kevin: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Kevin's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Sonic. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Kevin: I'm sorry about the chase, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Sonic: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sonic.
  • Sonic: Late at junction. You didn't know about Ash's passengers.
  • Kevin: Peep peep! Goodbye, Sonic! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Kevin.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Sonic!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Sonic raced back to tell Ash that all was well.
  • Ash: Thank you, Sonic, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're a very good friend indeed.

Alex and The Traffic Light

  • George Carlin: Alex works in the class at the Cartoon University. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Alex: Peep peep! Hurry up, Terry, the train's ready.
  • George Carlin: Terry thought he was late.
  • Alex: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Alex and showed him a train of dirty Beedrill. Terry thought how he can pay Alex back for teasing him. Next it was Raimundo's turn.
  • Alex: Stay in the shed today, Raimundo. Steven will come and see you.
  • Raimundo: Ah!
  • George Carlin: Thought Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Steven knows I'm a fine boy. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Raimundo's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Raimundo. You can't stay here all day.
  • Raimundo: Steven told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • Raimundo: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Oh. Where's Alex?
  • George Carlin: Alex had wisely disappeared. When Steven came back, he was cross with Raimundo and Alex for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Alex was still being cheeky.
  • Alex: I say, you characters, I'm to take some Beedrill to Ash's junction. Steven chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful kid.
  • Raimundo: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Raimundo. Terry looked across to Al. They were going to play a trick on Alex.
  • Terry: Raimundo and I were just speaking about traffic lights at the junction. We can't be too careful about traffic lights, but then I needn't say that to a really useful kid like you, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Alex felt flattered.
  • Raimundo: We've had spoken about backing traffic lights.
  • George Carlin: Put in Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Alex: No thank you, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: I know all about signals.
  • George Carlin: Alex was a little worried.
  • Alex: I wonder what backing traffic lights are.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Alex: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: He puffed crossly to his Beedrill and felt better. He came to a traffic light.
  • Alex: Bother, it's a danger.
  • George Carlin: The traffic light moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Alex had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Alex: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing traffic lights.
  • Driver: Come on, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Alex: But it's a backing traffic light.
  • George Carlin: Alex protested and told him about Terry and Raimundo. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Alex: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • George Carlin: He was too late. Terry saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Alex thought they were being very silly.

Alex Proves A Point

  • George Carlin: Alex works hard at the Cartoon University. The workmen needed stone for their building. Jackie helped, but sometimes the loads of stone were too heavy and Alex had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes he'd see Ash.
  • Ash: Well done, Alex. Steven is very pleased with us.
  • George Carlin: An airfield was closed by. Alex heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a superhero.
  • Alex: Silly thing!
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: Why can't and go and buzz somwhere else?
  • George Carlin: One day, Alex stopped at the airfield.
  • Alex: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: Who are you?
  • Superman: I'm Superman. Who are you?
  • Alex: I'm Alex. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Superman: They're nice arms.
  • George Carlin: Said Superman.
  • Superman: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Alex: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Superman: I think railways are slow.
  • George Carlin: Said Superman.
  • Superman: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • George Carlin: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Alex found Jackie at the quarry.
  • Alex: I say Jackie. That Superman, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says I'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • George Carlin: He collected his Beedrill and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familar buzzing.
  • Driver: Alex.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Superman. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Alex: Yes, let's.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex. Alex pounded along, the Beedrill screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. There was Superman. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Alex!
  • George Carlin: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • George Carlin: Alex had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Alex: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. It was no use. Alex was bucketing along with flying wheels and Harold was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • George Carlin: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Alex: Peep peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please?
  • George Carlin: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and haulted on the wharf.
  • Alex: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Alex.
  • Alex: I'm sure we've lost.
  • George Carlin: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Superman's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • George Carlin: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Alex. (singing) Said Superman to our Alex you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Alex and his stone cars did the trip in record time, and we beat the helicopter on our old branch line.
  • George Carlin: Alex loved it.
  • Alex: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy kid.

Pop Goes Ken

  • George: Virgil is very proud of being a teenager. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard, too, and makes everything go like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The Beedrill and Arcanine behaved well. The passengers even stopped grumbling. But the characters didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Virgil: There are two ways of doing things.
  • George Carlin: Virgil told them.
  • Virgil: The teenager way, or the wrong way. I'm a teenager and...
  • Shaggy, Terry and Raimundo: Don't we know it!
  • George Carlin: They groaned. The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Steven introduce him.
  • Steven: Here is Ken. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Virgil.
  • Ken: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Purred Ken in an oily voice.
  • Ken: Please to meet you, Virgil. Is that Raimundo and Virgil and Terry too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • George Carlin: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • George Carlin: They murmured.
  • Characters: We're pleased to have in our yard.
  • George Carlin: Virgil had his doubts.
  • Virgil: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He said. Ken purred after him.
  • Ken: Your worth Ste...
  • Virgil: Steven to you.
  • George Carlin: Ordered Virgil. Ken looked hurt.
  • Ken: Your worthy Steven thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We villains don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Virgil: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my Beedrill while I fetch Terry's Arcanine.
  • George Carlin: Ken delighted to show off, purred away. When Virgil returned, Ken was trying to take some Beedrill from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Ken found them hard to move. Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill groaned.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Virgil watched with interest. Ken lost patience.
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: He roared, and gave a great heave. The Beedrill jerked forward.
  • Beedrill: Ohhh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • Virgil: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil. Ken recovered and try to push the Beedrill back, but they wouldn't move. Virgil ran quietly around to collect the other Beedrill.
  • Virgil: Thank you for arranging these, Ken. I must go now.
  • Ken: Don't you want this lot?
  • Virgil: No thank you.
  • George Carlin: Ken gulped.
  • Ken: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Virgil: You never asked me. Besides.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Ken: Grrrr!
  • George Carlin: Ken had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the Beedrill were laughing and singing at him.
  • Beedrill: Beedrill are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts Ken, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong Beedrill out, Pop goes Ken!
  • Ken: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Ken, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Ken's Devious Deed

  • George Carlin: Ken of the Pokemon Mystery Club was sulking. The Beedrill would not stop singing rudely at him. Virgil was horrified.
  • Virgil: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Virgil: I'm sorry our Beedrill were rude to you, Ken,
  • George Carlin: Ken was still furious.
  • Ken: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Shaggy: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Virgil would never do that. We characters have our differences, but we never talked about them to the Beedrill. That would be dis...dis...
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Raimundo: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Raimundo.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Shaggy. Ken hated Virgil. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Virgil. Next day, he spoke to the Beedrill.
  • Ken: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Virgil told me one about Terry. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Terry I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Beedrill: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Terry will be cross with Virgil when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Virgil for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the characters as they went by. Soon Terry, Shaggy and Raimundo found out why.
  • Terry: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Raimundo: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Raimundo.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Shaggy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Shaggy: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • George Carlin: Virgil was tired out. The Beedrill had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: Hooosh!
  • Al: Keep out!
  • Virgil: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: I'm tired.
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the characters.
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: We're tired of you. We like Ken. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the Beedrill.
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: You do!
  • Ozzy: I don't!
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: You do!
  • George Carlin: Steven came to stop the noise.
  • Terry: Ozzy called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Terry.
  • Raimundo: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Raimundo.
  • Shaggy: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Shaggy.
  • Steven: Well, Virgil?
  • George Carlin: Virgil considered.
  • Virgil: I only wish sir.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Virgil: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Steven: (clearing throat)
  • Terry, Raimundo and Shaggy: He made Beedrill laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the characters. Steven recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Steven: Did you, Virgil?
  • Virgil: Certainly not, sir. No character will be as mean as that.
  • George Carlin: Ken lurked up.
  • Steven: Now, Ken, you heard what Virgil said.
  • Ken: I can't understand it, sir, to think that Virgil of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, sir, but no nothing.
  • Steven: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. Ken squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Steven: I'm sorry, Virgil, but you must go to Ken's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Virgil: As you wish, sir.
  • George Carlin: Virgil trundled sadly away, while Ken smirked with triumph.
