Transcript

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?

A Proud Day For Raimundo

  • George Carlin: One night, Shaggy and Terry were alone with Raimundo. Although Steven was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other characters will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Shaggy: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble Raimundo?
  • George Carlin: They would tease. Raimundo tried to get back by talking about Shaggy who got shut up in a tunnel and Terry who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Terry: You talk too much little Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: A fine strong character like me has something to talk about. I'm the only character who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two characters. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • George Carlin: Every wise character knows that the signalman sets the switches to make the characters run on the right track. But Terry was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Terry: Wake up, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry next morning.
  • Terry: It's time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo went to get Terry's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • Raimundo: I wish I was going with you.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • George Carlin: Terry with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Steven was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Terry started.
  • Terry: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • George Carlin: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Terry: Boop boop boop boop boop! Goodbye, little Raimundo, see you tomorrow!
  • George Carlin: Raimundo watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some Beedrill into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. Raimundo had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Terry trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • Raimundo: Hello, Terry. Is it tomorrow?
  • George Carlin: Terry didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • Raimundo: Did you lose your weight, Terry?
  • Terry: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • Raimundo: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo. All the passengers were shouting at the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • George Carlin: Steven climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Steven: Terry can't do it. Will you pull it for us, Raimundo?
  • Raimundo: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • George Carlin: So Raimundo was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Steven: Do your best, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Raimundo: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches.
  • Raimundo: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Raimundo. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to Raimundo and Steven was very impressed.
  • Steven: Well done. Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • Raimundo: Yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Answered Raimundo. Next day when Raimundo came by, Terry was pushing Beedrill.
  • Terry: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Terry: I'm teaching these Beedrill manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • George Carlin: And he gave his Beedrill a bump. Raimundo and Terry are now good friends. Raimundo sometimes takes the express to give Terry a rest. Terry never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of Beedrill.

Ash Gets Bumped

  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Ash Ketchum walks along his route with Bailey and Marina. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Ash coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Ash was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Alex O'Connell was waiting, too.
  • Alex: Hurry up, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Called Alex when the signal dropped.
  • Alex: If you're late, Steven might get a new character to replace you.
  • Ash: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash, but he was worried. Next day, Ash hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Ash saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Ash: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Ash.
  • Ash: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Ash, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Ash's driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Ash waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Sonic was waiting to take them home. When Ash finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Steven might be cross with him.
  • Alex: I warned Ash.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Alex to Raimundo.
  • Alex: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Ash pick up his passengers, Steven was nowhere to be seen.
  • (Ash looks around and finds nothing)
  • Ash: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Ash. Ash knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Driver: Careful, Ash!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • (Ash falls off the rails)
  • Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Ash: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Ash had to shunt Beedrill in the yard. Sonic came to see him.
  • Sonic: I understand you need my help again.
  • Ash: Yes, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash sadly.
  • Ash: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Sonic set off to collect Ash's passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Sonic drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Ash felt miserable.
  • Ash: I've lost my passengers to Sonic. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Sonic can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Ash reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Sonic is a good hedgehog, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Ash spoke to Sonic.
  • Ash: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Sonic: That's all right, Ash. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Ash: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: And always will be.

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.

The Runaway

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum was ill. Workmen had try to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Steven: Kevin must send you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven. Ash felt very miserable. Then, Steven spoke to Virgil.
  • Steven: I want you to help Alex and Jackie while Ash is away.
  • George Carlin: Virgil was delighted. He already knew Alex and soon made friends with Jackie and Sonic. Freakazoid gave him a big welcome too.
  • Freakazoid: Take care of Ash's coaches.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Freakazoid: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • George Carlin: Virgil was very gentle with the coaches. Bailey and Marina were impressed.
  • Bailey: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Marina: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • George Carlin: When Ash came back, Bailey and Marina told him how well Virgil had managed. Ash was so happy to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Ash's handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Ash found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Ash's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Shaggy's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Ash's handbrake. Ash simmered happily.
  • Ash: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He thought. As he saw Shaggy slowly approaching. But Ash's brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Bailey and Marina: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Bailey and Marina. But Ash, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Superman. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Ash was tiring.
  • Ash: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Ash saw Superman land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • George Carlin: At last Ash stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Superman.
  • Superman: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Ash.
  • George Carlin: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: We must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Weirdly, Ash agreed with him.

Shaggy's Forest

  • George Carlin: Shaggy Rogers has lived on the land of YTV for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He liked every part of it from the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Shaggy always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too.
  • Driver: Come on, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: He would sometimes say.
  • Driver: We made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy loved it here. The forest was filled with broad oaks and tall pines. Shaggy could remember the day long ago when he and Jackie brought some new trees to be planted and Freakazoid and Heathcliff helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others. Shaggy always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why but his driver understood.
  • Driver: It's peaceful.
  • George Carlin: He said to Shaggy. But one night, everything changed. The characters were resting in the shed.
  • Ash: Listen.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Can you hear a strange whistling sound?
  • Jackie: It's the wind blowing outside our shed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Jackie.
  • Jackie: But I never heard of like this before.
  • Raimundo: Do you know.
  • George Carlin: Added Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: If Terry wasn't here now, I say it was him thundering by with the express.
  • George Carlin: All the characters laughed, except Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: I hope the wind won't harm the forest.
  • George Carlin: By morning, the fierce winds have gone but the damage was done. Shaggy's driver came to see him in the yard.
  • Driver: Trees have fallen on the line.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Driver: We must help clear the tracks.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy set off with the breakdown train and Shaggy followed. Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Shaggy felt sad.
  • Shaggy: What will happen to all the animals who lived here?
  • George Carlin: He thought. When Shaggy's flat Beedrill were full of logs, he took them to the timbermill where they will be turned to furniture and other things. Shaggy was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was sorry to lose part of his forest.
  • Jackie: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Jackie to Ash.
  • Jackie: I wish there was something we can do to make things better again.
  • Ash: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: But what? We can't mend broken trees.
  • Steven: Hello, Jackie.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: You do look glum.
  • Jackie: I'm sad about the trees.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: And so is Shaggy. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it was gone.
  • Steven: We'll soon put that right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Steven.
  • Steven: I have an important job for you, Jackie. I will like you to take some Beedrill to the forest.
  • George Carlin: When the Beedrill arrived, Jackie was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees already for plating.
  • Jackie: This is the best job I've ever had.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie happily. When Shaggy returned, he was most surprised. There were Freakazoid and Heathcliff busily helping the workmen clear the torrents stumps and branches.
  • Freakazoid: Look, Shaggy.
  • George Carlin: Called Freakazoid.
  • Freakazoid: We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see.
  • George Carlin: Now whenever Shaggy stops by the forest, he could see the new trees growing strong and tall. Sometimes, everywhere was very quiet, and the other times, Shaggy could hear leaves rustling, or birds wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sounds of children laughing, and always he is happy here.

Alex Runs Away

  • George Carlin: Shaggy, Raimundo and Terry were miserable. They had been shut up for several days for being naughty and longed to be let out again. At last, Steven arrived.
  • Steven: I hope you are sorry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: And that you understand that every job on the railway is important. We have a new character named Alex who helps pull coaches and Ash and Kevin had worked the main line nicely, but I will let you now if you promise to work hard.
  • Terry: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the three characters.
  • Raimundo: We will.
  • Steven: That's good, but please remember that this no shunting nonsense must stop.
  • George Carlin: Steven then told Alex, Kevin and Ash that they can go and play on a branch line for a few days, and they ran off happily to find Bailey and Marina at the junction. The two ladies were very pleased to see Ash again. Kevin and Alex played with the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Stop, stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the Beedrill as they pushed them to their proper sidings. But the two boys laughed and went on shunting till the Beedrill were tightling arranged. Next, Kevin took some empty Beedrill from the quarry. Alex was left alone. He didn't mind that a bit. He like watching trains and being cheeky to the other characters.
  • Alex: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: He would call, and they got very cross. After a great deal of shunting, Alex was waiting for the signalman to set the switch so that he can go back to the yard. Alex was being rather careless and not paying attention. Kevin had warned Alex.
  • Kevin: Be careful on the main line. Whistle to the signalman that you are there.
  • George Carlin: But Alex didn't remember to whistle, and so the busy signalman forgot him. Alex waited and waited. The switch were still against him so he couldn't move. Then, he looked along the main line.
  • Alex: Peep, peep!
  • George Carlin: He whistled in horror, for rushing straight towards him was Terry with the express.
  • Terry: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Terry.
  • Terry: Get out of my way!
  • (Terry approaches Alex, who then shuts his eyes and the big character comes to a frightening halt)
  • George Carlin: Alex opened his eyes. Terry had stopped with Alex's buffers just a few inches from his own. But Alex had began to move.
  • Alex: I won't stay here, I'll run away!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. He ran straight through Kevin's station, and was so frighetend that he ran right up Terry's hill without stopping. After that, he was tired, but he couldn't stop. He had no driver to shut off steam and applied his brakes.
  • Alex: I want to stop! I want to stop!
  • George Carlin: He puffed. The man in the signalbox saw Alex was in trouble, so he kindly set the switch. Alex puffed wearly onto a nice empty siding, ending in a big bank of earth. He was too tired now to care where he went.
  • Alex: I want to stop, I want to stop! I have stopped!
  • George Carlin: He puffed thankfully.
  • Workmen: Never mind, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said the workmen as they dug him out.
  • Workmen: You shall have some drink and some coal and then you feel better.
  • George Carlin: Presently, Terry arrived.
  • Terry: Well done, Alex. You started so quickly that you stopped the nasty accident.
  • Alex: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: You were clever to stop.
  • George Carlin: Replied Terry. Then Terry helped pull Alex out from the bank. The two characters are now good friends, but Alex was always most careful that he goes out on the main line.

The Deputation

  • George Carlin: Snow came early to the land of YTV. It was heavier than usual. Most characters hate snow. Ozzy and Drix were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Shaggy: Help, help!
  • Drix: Losh shakes, Ozzy! It's Shaggy! Don't worry yourself, Shaggy! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • George Carlin: Shaggy was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The cells were looking glum. They told him Steven was making a decision.
  • Ozzy: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Alex: It's a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Terry: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Terry.
  • Raimundo: That Elmer Fudd too.
  • George Carlin: Put in Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Shaggy: The cells were splendid in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Added Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It isn't fair.
  • George Carlin: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Alex decided to talk to Kevin about it.
  • Kevin: What you need...
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: ...is a deputation.
  • George Carlin: He explained what that was. Alex ran back quickly.
  • Alex: Kevin says we need a depostation.
  • Terry: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: The question is...
  • Shaggy: What is a desperation?
  • George Carlin: Asked Shaggy.
  • Alex: It's when characters tell Steven something's wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Virgil: Did you say tell Steven?
  • George Carlin: Asked Virgil thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Terry: I purpose.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: That Alex be our...um...disputation.
  • Alex: Me?!
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Alex.
  • Alex: I can't!
  • Shaggy: Rubbish, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It's easy.
  • Terry: That's settled then.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry. Poor Alex wished it wasn't.
  • Steven: Hello, Alex. It's nice to be back.
  • George Carlin: Alex jumped.
  • Alex: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Steven: You look nervous, Alex. What's the matter?
  • Alex: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • George Carlin: Steven pondered.
  • Steven: Do you mean a deputation, Alex?
  • Alex: Yes sir, please sir. It's Ozzy and Drix. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be turned to scrap, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Please, sir, don't send them away.
  • Steven: Thank you, Alex. That will do.
  • George Carlin: Later, Steven spoke to the characters.
  • Steven: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings and I give a lot of thought to the matter.
  • George Carlin: He paused impressively.
  • Steven: Ozzy and Drix, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: The cells were surprised.
  • Ozzy: Thank you, sir.
  • Steven: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Drix: Thank you, sir. Uh, does this mean that the both of us?
  • George Carlin: Steven smiled.
  • Steven: It means...
  • George Carlin: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The cells were here to stay.

A New Friend For Ash

  • George Carlin: Heathcliff the Cat enjoyed living in the vicarage orchard. Kevin came to see him everyday, but sometimes, Heathcliff didn't have enough work to do.
  • Heathcliff: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Heathcliff: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Kevin: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Kevin.
  • Kevin: Steven has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Ash today.
  • Heathcliff: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Heathcliff happily.
  • Heathcliff: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Ash was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Kevin: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: This is Heathcliff a friend of mine. He's a cat.
  • George Carlin: Ash eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Ash: A what?
  • Heathcliff: A cat.
  • George Carlin: Explained Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Steven has a job for me.
  • Ash: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Heathcliff's car to Ash's train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Heathcliff: I'm glad Steven needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Ash: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash.
  • Heathcliff: I'm a cat. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Beedrill had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash's Driver.
  • Driver: They are escential. Heathcliff, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Heathcliff: Just the sort of job I like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: Now you'll see, Ash. I'll soon show you what bunnies can do.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Heathcliff: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Ash brought Bailey and Marina to visit him. Ash was most impressed.
  • Ash: Now I understand how useful a cat can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Heathcliff gave them rides to all the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Bailey: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Bailey.
  • Marina: He reminds me of Ash.
  • George Carlin: Added Marina. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Heathcliff to go. Ash pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Heathcliff's eye. Ash pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Heathcliff happy.
  • Ash: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Ash: Jon Arbuckle will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Heathcliff: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Heathcliff. That evening, Heathcliff stood remembering his new friend Ash, the harbour, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

Heroes

  • George Carlin: One morning, Bumpty and Raphael were busy at the Cartoon University, pushing and pulling Beedrill into their proper places. The twins are cheeky and love playing tricks. But they we're growing restless.
  • Raphael: Listen, Bumpty.
  • George Carlin: Said Raphael.
  • Raphael: Can you hear something?
  • Bumpty: What sort of something?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bumpty.
  • Raphael: Something different.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raphael.
  • Bumpty: I can't hear anything different.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty.
  • Raphael: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Raphael.
  • Raphael: Everything is the same. Sounds the same, looks the same. What we need is a surprise.
  • Bumpty: Surprise what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bumpty. Before Raphael could answer, the quarry master arrived.
  • Quarry Master: I have just received a message from Steven. He wants you to go to the station at the harbour.
  • Bumpty: I wonder what we've done this time.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty anxiously.
  • Raphael: It must be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raphael.
  • Bumpty: Why me?
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Bumpty.
  • Bumpty: I've not done anything.
  • Steven: Kevin is taking the children on a special trip today. I want you to go to the station and look after Beedrill there.
  • Bumpty and Raphael: We'll do our best, sir.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. Terry spoke severly to them.
  • Terry: You must behave here. You're on the main line now.
  • Raphael: Actually, Terry.
  • George Carlin: Giggled Raphael.
  • Raphael: When we saw you, we thought this was the scrapyard.
  • George Carlin: Terry was cross.
  • Terry: Just make sure that my coaches are ready for my evening train.
  • George Carlin: And he fumed away. The twins laughed and set to work.
  • Bumpty and Raphael: This was easy.
  • George Carlin: They said to each other.
  • Bumpty and Raphael: We know all about Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: But I'm afraid they didn't.
  • Beedrill: No need for that.
  • George Carlin: Shouted the Beedrill as the twins pushed them into place.
  • Beedrill: We'll show you around, we want to help.
  • Bumpty and Raphael: Thank you very much.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty and Raphael. The Beedrill giggled and began their tricks. Evening came. The yard was in a dreadful muddle. The twins had left the Beedrill tell them where to put things. Terry and the passengers waited impatiently outside the station while Bumpty and Raphael tried to sort things out. But by the time Terry was able to leave, it was very late indeed. Next day the twins were working at the quarry again.
  • Bumpty: That's a strange noise.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Bumpty.
  • Bumpty: I never heard a noise like that before.
  • Bumpty's Driver: I have.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver nervously.
  • Bumpty's Driver: It sounds like a rockslide to me.
  • (We hear a loud siren)
  • George Carlin: Then came the alarm.
  • Quarry Master: Danger! Clear the quarry!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the quarry master. Workmen scrambled into the Beedrill.
  • Bumpty and Raphael: Thank goodness we're here.
  • George Carlin: Said the twins. They were just puffing out of the quarry when...
  • Quarry Master: Help! Wait for me!
  • George Carlin: A workman had been left behind. Raphael waited as the man climbed quickly aboard. The twins left the quarry just in time.
  • (The avalanche buries the entire quarry completely)
  • George Carlin: Everyone was safe, but rubble lay all around.
  • Bumpty: Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty.
  • Bumpty: This wasn't our fault. I hope Steven will understand.
  • George Carlin: And indeed, he did. Next day, he arrived with Kevin.
  • Steven: Bumpty and Raphael, you still had a lot to learn about Beedrill, don't you? But you acted quickly and bravely an emergency. So three cheers for Bumpty and Raphael our heroes. Hip hip, hooray, hooray, hooray!
  • Bumpty: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty.
  • Bumpty: Being called heroes, well, it's, it's...
  • Raphael: It's a really nice surprise.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Raphael.

Escape!

  • George Carlin: One day, Kevin was talking to Heathcliff when Drix stormed by. He was pulling a train of heavy coal Beedrill.
  • Drix: Come on, Kevin. Stop gossping in the sun when there's work to be done.
  • George Carlin: Later, Kevin spoke to Drix.
  • Kevin: Heathcliff and I are old friends and you and he had in lot of common too.
  • Drix: We do?
  • George Carlin: Quizzed Drix.
  • Drix: And what would that be?
  • Kevin: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin quietly. Drix gasped.
  • Drix: Don't mention that word! It makes my feet wobble!
  • Kevin: It does the same to Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Replied Kevin.
  • Kevin: He was been sent to the scrapyard, but the Vicar and I saved him and now he's really useful again. Even so, Steven certainly does need another steam character here.
  • Drix: Aye, he does, and quickly.
  • George Carlin: That night, Drix was still working. He had taken the midnight goods train to a station at a faraway part of the island where only the diesels worked. He was just shunting, ready for his return journey, when...
  • Drix: That's sounds like a steam character.
  • George Carlin: He thought. The hiss came again.
  • Drix: Who's there?
  • George Carlin: Asked Drix. A whisper came.
  • Richie: Are you Steven's character.
  • Drix: Aye, and proud of it.
  • Richie: I'm Richie and I'm with my break van, Peter, we've run out of coal and had no more steam.
  • Drix: But what are you doing?
  • Richie: Escaping?
  • Drix: From what?
  • Richie: Scrap.
  • George Carlin: Drix shivered. Then, he remembered Kevin's story about saving Heathcliff.
  • Drix: I'll be glad to help ya. It lacked look those who were ready to scrap but I'm taking you away.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and firemen agreed to help too. Everyone worked fast.
  • Drix: No time to turn round. I'll run tender first. Come on.
  • (Dog barking)
  • George Carlin: But before they could clear the station they were stopped.
  • Foreman: Aha!
  • George Carlin: Called the foreman.
  • Foreman: A teenager and a kid too. You can't take these.
  • Driver: Aye, but there all for us.
  • George Carlin: Said Drix's driver.
  • Driver: See for yourself.
  • George Carlin: The foreman looked all over Richie.
  • Foreman: Seems in order. Right away, guard.
  • (Drix and Richie make an escape)
  • Drix: That was a near thing.
  • Richie: We have worse.
  • George Carlin: Replied Richie and they forced ahead. It was daylight when their journey ended.
  • Drix: We're home!
  • George Carlin: Cried Drix.
  • Driver: Shh!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: There the works. We'll find a place for Richie.
  • George Carlin: Richie said goodbye and thank you, and Drix puffed away. The next day, Drix told the other characters all about Richie.
  • Raimundo: Steven would have to know.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Terry: Drix should tell him at once.
  • George Carlin: Added Terry.
  • Steven: Well, here he is.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice.
  • Steven: Now what's this all about?
  • Virgil: Beg pardon, sir, but we do need another character.
  • Terry: Yes sir.
  • George Carlin: Ventured Terry.
  • Terry: A steam character, sir.
  • Steven: Well, unless one saved from scrap, there's little hope.
  • Drix: But sir, one has...
  • Steven: Yes indeed. And thanks to you, Drix, he is now at our works. Richie is just what we need for Virgil's branch line.
  • George Carlin: Everyone cheered. Now Richie and Peter are mended and painted in full great western colors. Virgil and Richie are happy on their branch line. The others laughed at first and called it "The Little Western". Virgil and Richie were delighted and so the little western, it will always be.
