Ash, Alex and The Mail Route

  • George Carlin: That night, when the other characters are tucked away in their rooms, you can still hear the faraway call of a Kids' WB character and the proper sound of feet moving. This is the sound of the mail delivery. One train is pulled by Ash, and the other by Alex, as the loads are too heavy for one character to do the work alone. The mail is loaded into Beedrill at the harbour and the characters pull their trains through the silent stations delivering their precious loads. One a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often Ash and Alex can even see the stars. But whenever the weather, lamps along the track always light their way. One night, Alex was waiting at the junction. The main line train was late. At last, Shaggy arrived.
  • Shaggy: Sorry.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Shaggy: The mail boat from the main line was delayed.
  • Driver: Come on, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's make up for lost time.
  • George Carlin: Alex hurried along as quickly as he could. But the sun was already rising as he finish his work.
  • Alex: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: It's nice be up in about, when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around.
  • George Carlin: Alex was not alone for long.
  • Alex: Bother!
  • George Carlin: Thought Alex.
  • Alex: It's that dizzy-thing Superman.
  • Superman: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Whirled Superman.
  • Superman: I only said railways were out of date, but you're so slow with the mail. You should give everyone their stamps back.
  • George Carlin: Alex was too tired to explain.
  • Alex: Bird brain.
  • George Carlin: He muttered.
  • Virgil: Good morning, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Called Virgil.
  • Virgil: You're up early this morning.
  • Alex: No, you're wrong.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Alex.
  • Alex: I'm back, tired and late.
  • George Carlin: He rolled up to the shed and fell asleep, almost before his buffers touched the bar. His driver decided to set off early that evening. Ash was waiting at the station.
  • Ash: Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says the person in charge of the mail has complained to Steven about the delay last night.
  • Alex: But that wasn't my fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Ash: I know.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: And so does Steven, but this mail person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before.
  • George Carlin: The characters were just leaving when they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Superman: I say, you two, there's news flying about.
  • Alex: Where?
  • George Carlin: Puffed Alex crossly.
  • Superman: All other the place. They're going to scrap the mail train and use me instead. Wings work wonders you know. Always.
  • Ash: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash. That night, everything ran like clockwork. Ash and Alex steamed through the stations making good time everywhere they went. At a station, Ash notice the man looking cold and worried. He had missed his train home.
  • Driver: We can give you a ride.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash's driver.
  • Ash's Driver: But it'll be rather uncomfortable.
  • Man: Thank you.
  • George Carlin: Said the man.
  • Man: Anything's better than sitting here.
  • George Carlin: The next afternoon, Alex past the airfield and saw Superman.
  • Alex: Hello, lazywings. Are you too tired to fly today?
  • Superman: The wings are too strong.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Superman.
  • Superman: I've been grounded.
  • Alex: You need rails.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Alex.
  • Alex: They work wonders you know. Always.
  • George Carlin: That night, Steven show the two characters a letter. It was from the man who missed his train.
  • Steven: He thinks you are both splendid, and everyone says that the mail train is the pride of the line.

The Kongsel

  • George Carlin: Bumpty and Raphael are a pair of birds. Each has four feet and tiny chimney and dome and a small squat cab. Their Beedrill are filled with China Clay. It is needed for pottery, paper, paint and many other things. The animals were now kept busy pulling the Beedrill for characters on the main line and for ships in the harbour. One morning, they arranged some Beedrill and went away for more. They returned to find them all gone. The animals were most surprised. Their drivers examine the patch of oil.
  • Driver: That's kongsel.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Bumpty: It's a what'll?
  • George Carlin: Asked Bumpty.
  • Raphael: A kongsel, I think.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raphael.
  • Raphael: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Bumpty: Coughs and sneezles spread kongsels.
  • Raphael: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the monkeysel came.
  • Bumpty: It isn't!
  • Raphael: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Bumpty and Raphael were horrified.
  • Bumpty: But the kongsel will magic us away like the Beedrill.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • George Carlin: Replied their drivers.
  • Drivers: We're more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know you're animals. So we'll take away your names and numbers and then this is what we'll do.
  • George Carlin: Puffing hard, the animals set off on their journey to find the monkey. They were looking forward to playing tricks on him. Creeping into the yard, they found the kong on a siding with missing Beedrill. Raphael hid behind, but Bumpty went bodly alongside. The kong looked up.
  • Donkey Kong: Do you mind?
  • Bumpty: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Bumpty.
  • Bumpty: I do. I want my Beedrill please.
  • Donkey Kong: These are mine.
  • George Carlin: Said the kong.
  • Donkey Kong: Go away.
  • George Carlin: Bumpty pretended not to be frightened.
  • Bumpty: You're a big bully.
  • George Carlin: He whimpered.
  • Bumpty: You'll be sorry.
  • George Carlin: He ran back and hid behind the Beedrill on the other side. Raphael now came forward.
  • Raphael: Beedrill stealer!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Raphael. He ran away too. Bumpty took his place. This went on and on till the kong's eyes nearly popped out.
  • Donkey Kong: Stop! You're making me giddy.
  • George Carlin: The two birds gazed at him.
  • Donkey Kong: Are there two of you?
  • Bumpty: Yes, we're birds.
  • Donkey Kong: I might have known it.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Kevin bustled up.
  • Kevin: Bumpty and Raphael, why are you playing here?
  • Bumpty: We're not playing.
  • George Carlin: Protested Bumpty.
  • Raphael: We're rescuing our Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Raphael.
  • Raphael: Even you don't take our Beedrill without asking, but this kongsel did.
  • Kevin: There's no cause to be rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin severly.
  • Kevin: This kong is a Metropolitan Vickers, kong electric type 2.
  • George Carlin: The birds were most impressed.
  • Bumpty: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • Donkey Kong: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: The kong smiled.
  • Donkey Kong: Call me Donkey Kong. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the Beedrill.
  • Kevin: That's all right then.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: Now off you go, Bumpty and Raphael. Fetch Donkey Kong's Beedrill, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • George Carlin: He said to Donkey Kong.
  • Kevin: But they're mattening at times.
  • George Carlin: Donkey Kong chuckled.
  • Donkey Kong: Mattening...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Donkey Kong: ...is the word.

Ozzy's Hamster

  • George Carlin: Virgil Hawkins worked hard in the hallways at the Cartoon University. Sometimes, he pulled coaches. Sometimes he pushed Beedrill. But whatever the work, Virgil got the job done without fuss. One day, Virgil was resting in the shed when Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your work in the yard had been good. Would you like to have a branch line to your own.
  • Virgil: Yes please, sir.
  • George Carlin: Replied Virgil. So Virgil took charge of his new branch line. The responsibility delighted him. The line runs along a coast by sandy beaches till it meets a port were big ships come in. Virgil enjoyed exploring every curve and corner of the line. Sea breezes swirled his smoke high into the air and his green paint glistened in the sunlight.
  • Virgil: This is just like being on holiday.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Driver: Well you know what they say.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: A change is as good as a rest.
  • George Carlin: Soon, Virgil was busier than ever. Steven was building a new station at the port. Virgil pulled the heavy Beedrill whenever they were needed. Sonic looked after Virgil's passengers and the other characters helped too. But the work took a long time. Noise and dust filled the air.
  • Jackie: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Jackie.
  • Jackie: The station is nearly finished.
  • Virgil: And on time, too.
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil thankfully. Virgil felt his responsibility deeply and talked endlessly about it.
  • Virgil: You don't understand, Ozzy, how much Steven relies on me.
  • Ozzy: Och aye.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Ozzy sleepily.
  • Virgil: I'm a teenager, and I...
  • Ozzy: Quack, quack, quack.
  • Virgil: What?
  • Ozzy: You heard. Quack, quack you go. Sounds like you had an egg layed. Now wheesh and let a cell sleep.
  • Virgil: Quack yourself!
  • George Carlin: Said Virgil indignantly. Later, he spoke to his driver.
  • Virgil: Ozzy says I quack, as if I laid an egg.
  • Fireman: Quack do you?
  • George Carlin: Pondered his fireman. He whispered something to Virgil and his driver. They were going to play a joke on Ozzy and pay him back for teasing Virgil. The characters were busy for the rest of the day and nothing more was said. Not even a quack. But when at last, Ozzy was asleep, Virgil's driver and fireman popped something into his water tank. Next morning when Ozzy for water, he found that he had an unexpected passenger aboard. A small white hamster popped out of his water tank.
  • Ozzy: Now look who's behind this.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Ozzy. The hamster was tamed, she shared the fireman's sandwiches and rode in the tender. The other characters enjoyed teasing Ozzy about her. Presently, she grew tired of travelling and hopped off to the station and there she stayed. That night, Ozzy's driver and fireman got busy and in the morning when Virgil's crew arrived to look him over they laughed and laughed.
  • Driver: Look, Virgil. Look what's under your bunker. It's a nest box with an egg in it.
  • George Carlin: Ozzy opened a sleepy eye.
  • Ozzy: Well, well, well. You must've laid it in the night, Virgil. All are for yours.
  • George Carlin: Then Virgil laughed too.
  • Virgil: You win, Ozzy. It did take a clever character to get the better of you.
  • George Carlin: There's a pond near the hamster station. Here she often swims and welcomes the trains as they passed by. The stationmaster calls her Tori. But to everyone else, she is always Ozzy's Hamster.

Ash Goes Fishing

  • George Carlin: When Ash walked along his path, 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.

A Scarf For Alex

  • George Carlin: It was a cold winter's morning on the land of YTV. The wind was bitter and the ground hard with frost. Ash and Alex were cold and cross.
  • Ash: All I want is a warm boiler.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Ash: Firelighter knows that. He's late.
  • Alex: He's not late.
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Alex: This weather woke us up early.
  • George Carlin: Gusts of wind swirled round the shed, tossing flakes of snow towards Ash. Then they swooshed round Alex too.
  • Alex: Why don't we talk about something else?
  • George Carlin: Shivered Alex.
  • Ash: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: Like how silly we'll look when our funnels turn into icicles.
  • Alex: That's not funny. Maybe we'll stop feeling cold if we talk about warm things-like sunshine and steam.
  • Ash: And firefighters.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Ash.
  • Alex: Scarves!
  • George Carlin: Continued Alex.
  • Ash: Scarves.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Ash.
  • Ash: That's what you need, Alex. A woolly scarf round your funnel.
  • George Carlin: Ash was only teasing, but Alex thought happily about scarves until the firelighter came. Steven was enjoying hot porridge for breakfast. He was looking foward to taking important visitors on a tour of the railway, and had pressed his special trousers.
  • Steven: I shall put them in my trunk.
  • George Carlin: Steven said to his wife.
  • Steven: And change into them just before the photographs are taken.
  • George Carlin: Then he set off to catch his train. Alex was now working hard. His fire was burning nicely, and he had plenty of steam, but he still hought about scarves. He saw them everywhere he went.
  • Alex: My funnel's cold! My funnel's cold!
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Alex: I want a scarf! I want a scarf!
  • Shaggy: Rubbish, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Characters don't wear scarves.
  • Alex: Characters with proper funnels do.
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Alex: You've only got a small one.
  • George Carlin: Before Shaggy could answer, Alex puffed away. Shaggy snorted. He was looking forward to pulling the special train. It was time for the photographs. Everyone was excited. Steven was waiting on the platform for his trousers. They were in a trunk amoungst a big load of baggage. The porters were taking the baggage trolley across the line. They were walking backwards to see that nothing fell off. Alex was still being cheeky. His driver always shut off steam just outside the station. Alex wanted to surprise the coaches by coming in as quietly was he could. But the porters didn't hear him either. Alex gave them such a fright that boxes and bags burst everywhere.
  • Alex: OH!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Alex. Sticky streams of jam trickled down Alex's face. A top hat hung on his lamp iron. Worst of all, a pair of trousers coiled lovingly round his funnel. Everyone was very angry. Steven seized the top hat.
  • Steven: Mine!
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: Alex, look at this!
  • Alex: Yes sir, I am sir.
  • Steven: My best trousers too.
  • Alex: Yes sir, please sir.
  • Steven: We must pay the passengers for their spoiled clothes, and my trousers are ruined. I hope this will teach you not to play tricks with the coaches.
  • George Carlin: Alex went off to the yard. He felt very silly. On the way he met Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Hello, Alex. So you found a scarf, eh? But legs go in trousers, not funnels!
  • George Carlin: And he puffed off to tell Shaggy the news. That evening, Ash and Alex were resting in the shed. Alex's driver has taken away the trousers and gave Alex a good rubdown.
  • Ash: Firelighter's promised to come early tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash. Shaggy arrived. He'd enjoyed taking the visitors around and now he felt sorry for Alex too.
  • Shaggy: Driver says the weather will be warmer tomorrow. You won't need a scarf, Alex.
  • Alex: Certainly not!
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Alex: Characters don't need scarves. Characters need warm boilers. Everyone knows that!

Mel Blake

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

Jackie's Tightrope

  • George Carlin: One day, Alex arrived at the Cartoon University to collect some stone for his Beedrill. Snow and frost lay everywhere. There was not a sound to be heard. Alex ventured furthur. He found Mel Blake resting in the shelter of some rocks.
  • Alex: Cheer up, Mel.
  • George Carlin: He whistled. Mel was still remembering the trouble she had with Beedrill.
  • Mel: Manager says I don't listen for his advice. He says I'd no business chortling down Jackie's line. Jackie's a fusspot.
  • Alex: Jackie has forgotten all about Beedrill than you'll ever known.
  • George Carlin: Replied Alex.
  • Alex: You must put the Beedrill where he wants them, then you'll be a really useful kid. Now if you excuse me, I have to take these stones to the harbour.
  • George Carlin: Mel liked Alex but she still wouldn't to his advice.
  • Mel: Why shouldn't I go on Jackie's line.
  • George Carlin: The siding arrangements are awkward. The put the Beedrill where Jackie wanted them, Mel had to make several journeys. She started making a plan.
  • Mel: If we used the key stood on Jackie's line.
  • George Carlin: She said to her driver.
  • Mel: We would save all was bother.
  • George Carlin: Her driver suspecting nothing allow them to go as far as the level crossing. A few days later, the weather changed. As the soon melted, the quarry grew busy again. Some trains were so long that before leaving the cars for Jackie, Mel had to go beyond the level crossing with them. Now for her plan. She would go further down the line without it seeming her fault.
  • Mel: Can you keep a secret?
  • George Carlin: She asked the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Yes, yes, yes!
  • George Carlin: They chattered.
  • Mel: Will you bump me at the level crossing and tell no one I ask you?
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill promised. But while Mel was away, Jackie arrived. He decided to shunt the Beedrill himself. The Beedrill decided to bump him anyway. They reached the level crossing and Jackie's brakes came on. This was the signal for the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled. Jackie was away. With the Beedrill screaming and yelling behind him. No one realize that melted snow had turned a stream ahead into a torrent and the bridge above it was about to collapse. The rails were now like a tightrope against the thundering water.
  • Jackie: Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: Cried Jackie. His driver thought for control. They came nearer and nearer by the bridge. It was all of nothing now. The driver breaked hard. Jackie stopped still on the rails but with his feet shredding the tightrope over the abyss. Mel was horrified and quickly came to the rescue. Workmen anchored Jackie with ropes while she pulled the Beedrill away. Then, she helped Jackie to safety.
  • Mel: I'm sorry about the Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Said Mel.
  • Mel: I can't think how you manage to stop them in time.
  • Jackie: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: My driver told me about circus people who walked tightropes, but I just didn't fancy doing it myself.
  • George Carlin: Later, Steven arrived.
  • Steven: A very smart piece of work.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Steven: Mel, you did well too I hear.
  • Mel: It was my fault about those Beedrill, sir.
  • George Carlin: She faulted.
  • Mel: But if I could...
  • Steven: Could what?
  • Mel: Come down the line sometimes, Sir? Jackie says he'll show me what to do.
  • Steven: Certainly.
  • George Carlin: Replied Steven.
  • Steven: If your manager agrees.
  • George Carlin: And so it was arranged. Now Mel is as happy as can be, and Steven thinks she's really useful indeed.

Time For Trouble

  • George Carlin: The land of YTV has many visitors, and Steven had scheduled more students. Terry McGinnis had to work harder than ever before.
  • Terry: Come on.
  • George Carlin: He called to the coaches.
  • Terry: Come on, come on, come on. The passengers rely on me to be on time.
  • George Carlin: Whenever Terry finished one journey it was time for another to begin.
  • (The conductor blows his whistle)
  • Terry: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Terry: I like a long run to stretch my feet.
  • George Carlin: Even so, Steven decided that Terry needed a rest.
  • Steven: Raimundo shall do your work.
  • George Carlin: He said kindly. Raimundo was delighted. He like to show off his smart red paint and was determined to be as fast as Terry.
  • Raimundo: You know, little Jackie.
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • Raimundo: I'm an important character. Everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time, that's me.
  • Jackie: Sez you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Jackie. Just then, Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your parts are worn, Jackie, so you must go to the works to be mended.
  • Jackie: Can I take Kitana, sir?
  • Steven: No. What would the passengers do without her?
  • George Carlin: Jackie saw Alex by the water tower.
  • Alex: Don't worry, Jackie. I'll take care of Kitana until you get back.
  • George Carlin: Soon Jackie was out on the main line. He clanked as he trundled along. He's a little character with small wheels. His tanks will not hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal.
  • Jackie: Good.
  • George Carlin: He tought.
  • Jackie: There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until Raimundo has passed.
  • George Carlin: Jackie was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Jackie before. Jackie's driver tried to explain but the new signalman wouldn't listen.
  • Signalman: We must clear the line for Raimundo with the express. You'll had to get more water at the next station.
  • George Carlin: Hurrying used a lot of water and his tanks were soon empty. Poor Jackie was out of steam and stranded on the main line.
  • Jackie's Fireman: We must warn Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman. Then he saw Alex and Kitana.
  • Jackie's Fireman: Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Kitana hated leaving Jackie.
  • Alex: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: You're taking the fireman to warn Raimundo. That's a big help.
  • George Carlin: Kitana felt much better. Raimundo was fuming when he heard the news.
  • Raimundo: I'm going to be late.
  • Signalman: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: I didn't understand about Jackie.
  • Raimundo's Driver: Now Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Raimundo's Driver: You had to push Jackie.
  • Raimundo: What, me?!
  • George Carlin: Snorted Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Me?! Push Jackie and pull my train too?!
  • George Carlin: Grumbling dreadfully, Raimundo set off to find Jackie. He came up behind Jackie and gave him a bump.
  • Raimundo: Get on you!
  • George Carlin: Raimundo had to work very hard. When he reached the works station he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform.
  • Boy: Koo. The express is late and it's got two characters. I think Raimundo couldn't pull it on his own so Jackie had to help him.
  • Jackie: Never mind, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Jackie.
  • Jackie: They're only joking.
  • Raimundo: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo. Jackie just smiled.

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.

Kevin, Heathcliff and The Really Useful Party

  • George Carlin: Heathcliff the Cat is old fashioned, but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Kevin Keene. Early one morning, Heathcliff was chuffing about the Vicarage Orchard. He had important news for Kevin.
  • Heathcliff: The Vicar says that not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for his seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction.
  • George Carlin: Chattered Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: Giving rides to all the visitors. The Vicar is putting up posters all about it.
  • Kevin: I'd like to help too.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Kevin.
  • Kevin: But without my rails, I wouldn't be much good at the garden party.
  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful day but Kevin was worried.
  • Kevin: I wish there was something I can do for a party.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Kevin: I'd like to be helpful like Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Kevin's driver laughed.
  • Driver: You're helpful in your own way, and that's on the railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, it was Heathcliff's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news.
  • Heathcliff: The Vicar's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party.
  • George Carlin: But Kevin had an idea.
  • Kevin: Don't worry.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Kevin: Everything is going to be all right.
  • George Carlin: Then he explained to his driver.
  • Kevin: The Vicar can paste his posters on my cab and coaches, so wherever I go, they'll go too.
  • Driver: Well done, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: I'm sure Steven would agree.
  • George Carlin: As indeed he did. Kevin steamed happily to the stations collecting his passengers.
  • Passengers: Look!
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: The Vicar is holding a party. We must go do that.
  • George Carlin: Later Heathcliff was resting in the orchard shed when Sonic rolled by.
  • Sonic: Hello, Heathcliff. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?
  • Heathcliff: I'm not dozing, I'm resting.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff. Then he told Sonic about the Vicar's party.
  • Sonic: I'll be there too.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Sonic.
  • Sonic: I'm not sure people would wanna ride on a cat after traveling in the smart blue hedgehog like me.
  • George Carlin: The party day arrived. It had rained heavenly during the night and the orchard grove was soaked.
  • Heathcliff: Rain and mud won't spoil my day.
  • George Carlin: Said Heathcliff.
  • Driver: No indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed his driver.
  • Driver: We'll stay on the road then we won't get bogged down.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff was soon busy trending up and down the quiet country lane, carrying lots of laughing children. He was just turning the corner when he heard Bertie.
  • Sonic: Hello, old timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. People have come from all other the island.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff gave Sonic a cheerful whistle, and turned backed toward the orchard. Then there was trouble.
  • Sonic: Help, I'm stuck!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Sonic. His feet had sunk deep in the orchard mud. Freakazoid arrived just in time.
  • Freakazoid: I'm the one who has to plough fields.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Freakazoid.
  • Freakazoid: We better get you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Using strong ropes, Freakazoid and Heathcliff pulled Sonic cleared the mud.
  • Heathcliff: This will teach Sonic a thing or two.
  • George Carlin: Heathcliff chuffered to himself. At last, Sonic was on the road again.
  • Sonic: Thank you, Heathcliff. You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all.
  • Heathcliff: No.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: But you were. Just for a little while.
  • George Carlin: That evening, the Vicar arrived to see Kevin and his driver.
  • Vicar: Thanks to your good idea about the posters. Hundreds of people payed to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children.
  • George Carlin: Kevin was very pleased and Heathcliff fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last.
