Script

Ash, Kevin and The Coal

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

Miltank

  • Ringo Starr: Marty 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 Marty was heading for trouble.
  • Marty: Come on! Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Screamed the Beedrill. Marty 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 Marty clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some Beedrill were left behind.
  • (Miltank mooing)
  • Ringo Starr: Marty felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to Beedrill.
  • Marty: Bother those Beedrill!
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Marty: Why can't they come quietly?
  • Ringo Starr: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Scott and Shaggy heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Scott: Fancy allowing Beedrill to break his train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • Ringo Starr: Tai was cross.
  • Tai: You couldn't help it, Marty. They've never met Miltank. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • Ringo Starr: Some days later, Scott rushed through Marty's Station.
  • Scott: Boop boop! Mind the Miltank! Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Scott.
  • Pets: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled his pets. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Scott that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Scott's Driver: Whoa, Scott!
  • Ringo Starr: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Scott: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: It's only a Miltank! Shooh! Shooh!
  • Ringo Starr: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the Miltank wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • Ringo Starr: 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!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the Miltank. Shaggy backed away nervously.
  • Shaggy: I don't want to hurt her.
  • Ringo Starr: At the next station, Shaggy's guard told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, ready to go to market. Kevin will take her along.
  • Ringo Starr: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • Shaggy: Not a word.
  • Scott: Keep it dark.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Scott and Shaggy to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Marty: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Marty.
  • Marty: Two big characters afraid of a Miltank.
  • Scott: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: 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 Marty.
  • Marty: Yes, Scott.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty. Scott felt somehow that Marty "saw" only too well.

Sonic's Chase

  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Marty was waiting to pick up passengers from Ash Ketchum.
  • Marty: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Ash? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • Ringo Starr: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind about Johnny.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Ash. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: He clambered down.
  • Sonic: Stop, stop! I've got Ash's passengers!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Sonic, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Marty was gone.
  • Sonic: Bother.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Sonic: I'll catch Marty or bust.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • Ringo Starr: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Sonic: I'll never be the same bus again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • Ringo Starr: Cheered Sonic as he reached the top.
  • Sonic: Oh, no! Marty's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Sonic toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Sonic!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • Ringo Starr: Sonic skitted into the yard.
  • Sonic: Wait, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Sonic. He was just in time to see Marty puffed away.
  • Sonic: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Sonic.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Marty. I'll just make sure.
  • Ringo Starr: He spoke to the stationmaster. Sonic and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers, as Sonic chased after Marty once more.
  • Pets: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the pets as Marty snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Marty: Peep peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Marty.
  • Marty: Get in quickly please.
  • Ringo Starr: The guard blew the whistle and Marty'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 guard and driver what had happened.
  • Marty: I'm sorry about the chase, Sonic.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Sonic: My fault.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Sonic.
  • Sonic: Late at junction. You didn't know about Ash's passengers.
  • Marty: Peep peep! Goodbye, Sonic! We're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Marty.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Sonic!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers. Sonic raced back to tell Ash that all was well.
  • Ash: Thank you, Sonic.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're a very good friend indeed.

Saved From Scrap

  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny works his characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Marty: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • Ringo Starr: Marty called to Ash.
  • Ash: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash cheekily. Ash was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into Beedrill and Marty pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Marty in the yard. It was a snail.
  • Marty: Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Marty: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Turbo: I'm Turbo. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Marty: What a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Turbo: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new, but my owner says I'm old fashioned.
  • Ringo Starr: Marty snorted.
  • Marty: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Bugs Bunny says I'm a useful character. What work did you do?
  • Turbo: My owner will send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • Ringo Starr: Turbo shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Turbo: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: Marty set off for the station.
  • Marty: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Turbo, I must.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought of all his friends who liked characters. But strangely none of them would have room for a snail at home.
  • Marty: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. Then...
  • Marty: Peep! Peep! Why didn't I think of him before.
  • Ringo Starr: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Charles: Hello, Marty. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a snail in the scrapyard, professor. He'll be broken up next week. Bluster Kong says he never drove a better character.
  • Marty: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Charles: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the professor. Bluster Kong came on Saturday.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's coming to see you, Turbo. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Turbo: Do you think he will?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Turbo hopefully.
  • Bluster Kong: He will when I lit your fire and clean you up.
  • Ringo Starr: The professor and his two boys arrived that evening. Turbo hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Charles: Show your paces, Turbo.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the professor. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Charles: I've got him cheap, Bluster, cheap.
  • Bluster Kong: Did ye hear that, Turbo?
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Bluster.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Turbo: Peep! Peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Turbo. Now Turbo's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Marty every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Turbo likes his work but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers round the orchard giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Turbo: I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispers happily.

Old Iron

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

Ash and Turbo

  • Ringo Starr: Turbo the Racing snail enjoyed living in the Vicarage Orchard. Marty came to see him every day, but sometimes, Turbo didn't have enough work to do.
  • Turbo: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • Ringo Starr: He sighed one day.
  • Turbo: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Marty: Cheer up.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Marty.
  • Marty: Bugs Bunny has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Ash today.
  • Turbo: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Turbo happily.
  • Turbo: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Marty: Hello, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Marty: This is Turbo a friend of mine. He's a racing snail.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Ash: A what snail?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Turbo: A racing snail.
  • Ringo Starr: Explained Turbo.
  • Turbo: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Bugs Bunny has a job for me.
  • Ash: Yes, of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Turbo's car to Ash's train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Turbo: I'm glad Bugs Bunny needs me.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Turbo.
  • Turbo: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Ash.
  • Turbo: I'm a racing snail. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Turbo.
  • Turbo: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash's Driver.
  • Driver: They are essential. Turbo, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Turbo: Just the sort of job I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Turbo.
  • Turbo: Now you'll see, Ash. I'll soon show you what snails can do.
  • Ringo Starr: Turbo was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Turbo: Who needs rails?
  • Ringo Starr: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Ash brought Marcella and Teodora to visit him. Ash was most impressed.
  • Ash: Now I understand how useful a racing snail can be.
  • Ringo Starr: The coaches were full of children. Turbo gave them rides along the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Marcella: He's very kind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marcella.
  • Teodora: He reminds me of Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Teodora. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Turbo to go. Ash pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Turbo's eye. Ash pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Turbo happy.
  • Ash: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Turbo: That would be wonderful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Turbo. That evening, Turbo 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.

Kevin and The Traffic Light

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

Virgil Takes Charge

  • Kevin: Do you know what?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Kevin.
  • Scott: What?
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Scott.
  • Kevin: Do you know what?
  • Scott: Silly!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Kevin: Bugs Bunny says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger character to help me.
  • Al: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Al.
  • Al: Any character could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin went off to get some pets.
  • Kevin: That stupid old traffic light.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a traffic light and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Kevin: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little kid and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some pets to the station.
  • Bugs: Hello, Kevin.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: You look tired.
  • Kevin: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my head or on my feet.
  • Bugs: You look the right way up to me.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Cheer up. The new character is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Ash and Tai will help.
  • Kevin: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: The new character arrived.
  • Steven: What's your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Steven.
  • Virgil: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Virgil. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Virgil better than Montague.
  • Bugs: Good. Virgil it shall be. Here, Kevin, show Virgil around.
  • Ringo Starr: The two characters went off together. Soon they were very busy. Al, Scott and Shaggy watched Virgil quietly doing his work.
  • Shaggy: He seems a simple sort of character.
  • Al: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Shaggy, Scott and Al: (quacking noises) Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Smoke billowed everywhere. Kevin was cross, but Virgil took no notice.
  • Virgil: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Kevin?
  • Kevin: Yes they do.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Kevin.
  • Virgil: Right.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispered something.
  • Virgil: We'll do it later.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Shaggy, Scott, Al: Wheesh! (snorting noises)
  • Bugs: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: He said and hurried to the yard. Virgil and Kevin calmly sat on the points outside the shed, refusing to let the characters in. Scott, Al and Shaggy were furious.
  • Bugs: Stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Bellowed Bugs Bunny.
  • Scott: They won't let us in!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Scott.
  • Bugs: Virgil, explain this behavior.
  • Virgil: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a teenager. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Kevin and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, characters that we only take orders from you.
  • (Al and Scott blew their whistles loudly)
  • Bugs: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Kevin and Virgil, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott, Shaggy and Al sniggered.
  • Bugs: As for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Thundered Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Virgil is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • Ringo Starr: After Kevin went away, Virgil was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!

Kevin and Superman

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

The Runaway

  • Ringo Starr: Ash Ketchum was ill. Workmen had try to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Bugs: Marty must send you to the works.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny. Ash felt very miserable. Then, Bugs Bunny spoke to Virgil.
  • Bugs: I want you to help Kevin and Puss while Ash is away.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil was delighted. He already knew Kevin and soon made friends with Puss and Sonic. Freakazoid gave him a big welcome too.
  • Freakazoid: Take care of Ash's ladies.
  • Ringo Starr: He advised.
  • Freakazoid: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil was very gentle with the ladies. Marcella and Teodora were impressed.
  • Marcella: Such nice manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They told each other.
  • Teodora: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • Ringo Starr: When Ash came back, Marcella and Teodora 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 embarrassing. 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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 guard, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Marcella and Teodora: Stop! Stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Shrieked Marcella and Teodora. But Ash, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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)
  • Ringo Starr: At last Ash stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Superman.
  • Superman: Think nothing of it.
  • Ringo Starr: Whirred Superman.
  • Superman: Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Phew.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: We must never let this happen again, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Weirdly, Ash agreed with him.

Kevin Takes The Plunge

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Shaggy wanted to rest, but Kevin was talking to some pets. He was telling them about the time he had braved bad weather to help Ash.
  • Kevin: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Tom: Oh, Kevin, you are brave.
  • Kevin: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a character with determination.
  • Jerry: Tell us more, Kevin.
  • Shaggy: What are you characters doing here?
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: This shed is for Bugs Bunny's characters. Go away. Silly things.
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy snorted.
  • Kevin: They're not silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin had been enjoying himself.
  • Shaggy: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to a character with determination. Huh.
  • Kevin: Anyway.
  • Ringo Starr: Said cheeky Kevin.
  • Kevin: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Kevin: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Shaggy. Ash was looking at the board on the key.
  • Ash: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Ash: That's orders.
  • Kevin: Why?
  • Ash: Danger means falling down something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Kevin: I can't see a mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Kevin: Stupid board.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the Beedrill.
  • Kevin: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • Ringo Starr: The Beedrill had never asked to bump a character before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Kevin: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Kevin.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the Beedrill. Kevin thought they were helping.
  • Kevin: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise character knows that you cannot trust Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled, and bumped Kevin's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Kevin: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin, sliding pass the board. Kevin was frantic.
  • Kevin: That's enough!
  • (Kevin falls into the water)
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin was sunked.
  • Bugs: You are a very disobedient kid.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin knew that voice.
  • Kevin: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Bugs: No Kevin, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to obey orders.
  • Kevin: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Kevin. 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!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Did you like the water?
  • Kevin: No.
  • Shaggy: I am surprised. You need more determination, Kevin. Water's nothing to a character with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.

Pop Goes The Koopa

  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil told them.
  • Virgil: The teenager way, or the wrong way. I'm a teenager and...
  • Shaggy, Scott and Al: Don't we know it!
  • Ringo Starr: They groaned. The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Bugs Bunny introduce him.
  • Bugs: Here is Bowser. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Virgil.
  • Bowser: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Purred Bowser in an oily voice.
  • Bowser: Please to meet you, Virgil. Is that Al and Shaggy and Scott too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • Ringo Starr: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They murmured.
  • Characters: We're pleased to have in our yard.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil had his doubts.
  • Virgil: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. Bowser purred after him.
  • Bowser: Your worthy Bun...
  • Virgil: Bugs Bunny to you.
  • Ringo Starr: Ordered Virgil. Bowser looked hurt.
  • Bowser: Your worthy Bugs Bunny thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We koopas don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Virgil: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my Beedrill while I fetch Scott's Arcanine.
  • Ringo Starr: Bowser delighted to show off, purred away. When Virgil returned, Bowser was trying to take some Beedrill from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Bowser found them hard to move. Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: The Beedrill groaned.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil watched with interest. Bowser lost patience.
  • Bowser: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: He roared, and gave a great heave. The Beedrill jerked forward.
  • Beedrill: Ohhh!
  • Ringo Starr: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Bowser: Grrrr!
  • Virgil: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Virgil. Bowser 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, Bowser. I must go now.
  • Bowser: Don't you want this lot?
  • Virgil: No thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Bowser gulped.
  • Bowser: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Virgil: You never asked me. Besides.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Bowser: Grrrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Bowser 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 the Koopa, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong Beedrill out, Pop goes Bowser!
  • Bowser: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Growled Bowser, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Dirty Work

  • Ringo Starr: King Bowser Koopa was sulking. The Beedrill would not stop singing rudely at him. Virgil was horrified.
  • Virgil: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Virgil: I'm sorry our Beedrill were rude to you, Bowser.
  • Ringo Starr: Bowser was still furious.
  • Bowser: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Shaggy: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: 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...
  • Scott: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Al.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Shaggy. Bowser 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.
  • Bowser: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Virgil told me one about Scott. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Scott I told you.
  • Ringo Starr: And he sniggered away.
  • Beedrill: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Guffawed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Scott will be cross with Virgil when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Virgil for bumping us.
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed rudely at the characters as they went by. Soon Scott, Shaggy and Al found out why.
  • Scott: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Al.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: We cannot allow it.
  • Ringo Starr: They consulted together.
  • Shaggy: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Shaggy: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil was tired out. The Beedrill had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: Hooosh!
  • Al: Keep out!
  • Virgil: Stop fooling.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Virgil.
  • Virgil: I'm tired.
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: So are we.
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed the characters.
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: We're tired of you. We like Bowser. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the Beedrill.
  • Virgil: I don't!
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: You do!
  • Virgil: I don't!
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: You do!
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny came to stop the noise.
  • Scott: Virgil called me a galloping sausage!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Scott.
  • Al: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Al.
  • Shaggy: I'm old square wheels!
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Shaggy.
  • Bugs: Well, Virgil?
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil considered.
  • Virgil: I only wish sir.
  • Ringo Starr: He said gravely.
  • Virgil: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Bugs: (clearing throat)
  • Scott, Al and Shaggy: He made Beedrill laugh at us.
  • Ringo Starr: Accused the characters. Bugs Bunny recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Bugs: Did you, Virgil?
  • Virgil: Certainly not, sir. No character will be as mean as that.
  • Ringo Starr: Bowser lurked up.
  • Bugs: Now Bowser, you heard what Virgil said.
  • Bowser: I can't understand it, sir, to think that Virgil of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, sir, but no nothing.
  • Bugs: I see.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny. Bowser squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Bugs: I'm sorry, Virgil, but you must go to Marty's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Virgil: As you wish, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil trundled sadly away, while Bowser smirked with triumph.

A Close Shave

  • Ringo Starr: Virgil Hawkins walked sadly to Marty's station.
  • Virgil: It's not fair.
  • Ringo Starr: He complained.
  • Virgil: Bowser has been telling lies about me and made Bugs Bunny and all the characters think I'm horrid.
  • Ringo Starr: Marty smiled.
  • Marty: I know you weren't, and so does Bugs Bunny. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these Beedrill?
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil felt happier with Marty, and set to work at once. The Beedrill were silly, heavy and noisy. The two characters have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Virgil: Goodbye!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Virgil, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Virgil love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Virgil: It was the guard's warning whistle.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled.
  • Driver: Hurry, Virgil, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver. They raced through Marty's station, but the Beedrill were catching up.
  • Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver was gaining control.
  • Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Al was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Driver: It's up to you now, Virgil.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the driver. Virgil put every ounce of wait and steam against the Beedrill.
  • Virgil: It's too late!
  • Ringo Starr: Virgil groaned and shut his eyes. He veered into a siding where Wario had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: The silly Beedrill were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the Beedrill didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Virgil: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Gasped Virgil.
  • Virgil: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Wario: No I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wario.
  • Wario: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • Ringo Starr: And he lathered Virgil's face all other. Poor Virgil! Ash was helping to pull the Beedrill away when Bugs Bunny arrived.
  • Wario: I do not like characters popping through my walls.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Wario.
  • Bugs: I appreciate your feelings.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: But you must know that this character and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Wario: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Wario.
  • Wario: Oh! Excuse me.
  • Ringo Starr: He filled the basin of water to wash Virgil's face.
  • Wario: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave character.
  • Virgil: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Bugs: You were very brave indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: I'm proud of you.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Virgil.
  • Bugs: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Virgil: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Bugs: Of course.
  • Virgil: But sir, they don't like me. They like Bowser.
  • Bugs: Not now. I never believed Bowser, so I sent him packing. The characters were sorry and want you back.
  • Ringo Starr: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Virgil Hawkins.

Better Late Than Never

  • Ringo Starr: The Characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Bugs Bunny did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The characters have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Ash would be ready to collect his passengers. Ash grew crosser and crosser.
  • Ash: Time's time.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Ash: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Shaggy and Al dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Shaggy: Don't blame me.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Ash: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • Ringo Starr: Retorted Ash. He hurried away before Shaggy could answer. Sonic was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Ash. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the hedgehog till their train, they were kept waiting till Ash arrived. Soon Sonic grew cross with Ash.
  • Sonic: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: He remarked as Ash panted wearily in.
  • Sonic: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Ash. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash let off steam loudly.
  • Ash: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed fiercely.
  • Ash: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Bugs Bunny's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Al was later than ever at the junction.
  • Al: I'm sorry, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Al: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Ash: It's lucky for you I'm a guarantee connection.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Ash. Before Al could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Ash: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the ladies. Marcella and Teodora did their best but Ash still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Ash saw Sonic ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Ash: What's the matter?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Ash.
  • Ash: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Sonic: I feel dreadful.
  • Ringo Starr: Moaned Sonic.
  • Sonic: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home otherwise.
  • Ash: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Ash. He now felt sorry for Sonic, and promised to get help at the next station. Ash set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Sonic's passengers, travelling in Marcella and Teodora all reached home safely. When Sonic was better he came to thank Ash.
  • Sonic: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Ash: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • Ringo Starr: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.

Elmer Fudd

  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy and Drix are cells, and have arrived from the City of Hector to help Bugs Bunny, but only one character had been expected. The cells meant well, but did cause confusion. Bugs Bunny had given them numbers, Ozzy 9 and Drix 10, but he was still planning to send one character home. There was Elmer Fudd in the yard that had taken a dislike to Drix. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Drix began to worry. Ozzy, his friend, was angry.
  • Ozzy: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Elmer: You can't!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Elmer.
  • Elmer: I'm essential!
  • Ozzy: Och are you?
  • Ringo Starr: Ozzy burst out.
  • Ozzy: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Drix, would ya? Take that!
  • Elmer: Ow, oh, oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Elmer.
  • Ozzy: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • Ringo Starr: Elmer behave better after that. Until one day, Ozzy had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time.
  • (Ozzy crashes into the signal box)
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny was most annyoed.
  • Bugs: I am disappointed, Ozzy. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Drix back and keep you.
  • Ozzy: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Bugs: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Al will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. Al won't like that.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny was right. Al grumbled dreadfully.
  • Drix: Anyone would think.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Drix.
  • Drix: That Ozzy had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about a character and some tar wagons.
  • Al: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Al.
  • Al: It's not funny.
  • Ringo Starr: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Drix: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Drix.
  • Drix: Surely, Al, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • Ringo Starr: Al didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Elmer: He's cross!
  • Ringo Starr: Sniggered Elmer.
  • Elmer: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Beedrill: Hold back!
  • Ringo Starr: Giggled the Beedrill to each other. Al did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Marty's station. Luckily, Drix was there.
  • Al: Help me up the hill, please! (pants)
  • Ringo Starr: Panted Al.
  • Al: These Beedrill are playing tricks.
  • Drix: We'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Drix. Slowly but surely, the snorting characters forced the Beedrill up the hill. But Al was losing steam.
  • Al: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Drix: Leave it to me!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted Drix. The guard was anxious.
  • Guard: Go steady! Elmer's breaking!
  • (Drix smashes Elmer to bits)
  • Ringo Starr: Elmer was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Marty came to clear the mess. Bugs Bunny was on board.
  • Bugs: I might have known it would be Drix.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Marty: Drix was grand, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Marty: Al had no steam left, but Drix worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Bugs: Two would have been enough.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: I want to be fair, Drix, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny was making up his mind about something, but that's another story.

The Deputation

  • Ringo Starr: Snow came early to the land of Cartoons. 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...
  • Drix: Losh shakes, Ozzy! It's Shaggy! Dinna fash yourself, Shaggy! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The cells were looking glum. They told him Bugs Bunny was returning soon.
  • Ozzy: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Kevin: It's a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin.
  • Scott: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Scott.
  • Al: That Elmer Fudd too.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Al.
  • Al: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Shaggy: They were splendid in the snow.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It isn't fair.
  • Ringo Starr: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Kevin decided to talk to Marty about it.
  • Marty: What you need...
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Marty: ...is a deputation.
  • Ringo Starr: He explained what that was. Kevin ran back quickly.
  • Kevin: Marty says we need a depostation.
  • Scott: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: The question is...
  • Shaggy: What is a desperation?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Shaggy.
  • Kevin: It's when characters tell Bugs Bunny something's wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin.
  • Virgil: Did you say tell Bugs Bunny?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Virgil thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Scott: I purpose.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: That Kevin be our...um...disputation.
  • Kevin: Hi?!
  • Ringo Starr: Squeaked Kevin.
  • Kevin: I can't!
  • Shaggy: Rubbish, Kevin.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It's easy.
  • Scott: That's settled then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry. Poor Kevin wished it wasn't.
  • Bugs: Hello, Kevin. It's nice to be back.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin jumped.
  • Kevin: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Bugs: You look nervous, Kevin. What's the matter?
  • Kevin: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny pondered.
  • Bugs: Do you mean a deputation, Kevin?
  • Kevin: Yes sir, please sir. It's Ozzy and Drix, sir. 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.
  • Bugs: Thank you, Kevin. That will do.
  • Ringo Starr: Later, Bugs Bunny spoke to the characters.
  • Bugs: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings, but I do not approve of interference.
  • Ringo Starr: He paused impressively.
  • Bugs: Ozzy and Drix, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Ringo Starr: The cells were surprised.
  • Ozzy: Thank you, sir.
  • Bugs: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Drix: Thank you, sir. Does this mean that the both of us?
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny smiled.
  • Bugs: It means...
  • Ringo Starr: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The cells were here to stay.

Ash Comes To Breakfast

  • Ringo Starr: Ash Ketchum has worked his route for many years, and knows it very well.
  • Ash's Driver: You know just where to stop, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed his driver.
  • Ash's Driver: You could almost manage it without me.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash had become conceited. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Ash: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Kevin: Don't be so daft!
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Kevin.
  • ​Tai: I'd never go without my driver.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Tai earnestly.
  • ​TaiI'd be frightened.
  • Ash: Puh!
  • Ringo Starr: Boasted Ash.
  • Ash: I'm not scared!
  • Tai: You'd never dare!
  • Ash: I would then, you'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, the firelighter came. Ash drowsed comfortably, and the warmth spread through his body. Kevin and Tai were still asleep. Ash suddenly remembered.
  • Ash: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled.
  • Ash: I'll show them. Driver said I could manage without him. I'll just go out, then I'll stop and WHEESH! That'll make them jump.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash thought he was being clever. Really, he was only moving because a careless cleaner had meddled with his body. He soon found his mistake. He tried to wheesh, but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare look at what was coming next; there was the principal's house. The principal was just about to have breakfast.
  • Ash: Horrors!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Ash, and shut his eyes. (CRASH!) The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Ash had collected a bush on his travels. He peered into the room through its leaves. He couldn't speak. The principal was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Darkholme: You miserable trainer!
  • Ringo Starr: She scolded.
  • Darkholme: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I shall have to cook some more!
  • Ringo Starr: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time, it fell on Ash. Ash felt depressed. Workmen propped up the house with strong poles, and laid a path through the garden. Meanwhile, Ozzy and Drix arrived.
  • Drix: Dinna fash yourself, Ash, we'll soon have you back on the path!
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed. Ozzy and Drix working hard, managed to haul Ash back to safety. Bits of fencing, a bush, and a broken window frame festuned his front, which was badly twisted. The cells laughed and left him. Ash was in disgrace. There was worse to come.
  • Bugs: You are a very naughty trainer.
  • Ash: I know, sir. I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash's voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Bugs: You must go to the workshop and have your front mended, it will be a long job.
  • Ash: Yes, sir.
  • Bugs: Meanwhile, a girl from Hong Kong will do your work.
  • Ash: A G-g-girl, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Ash spluttered.
  • Bugs: Yes, Ash. Girls always stay in their houses until they are wanted. Girls never galavant off to breakfast in principal's houses.

Meilin Rae

  • Ringo Starr: Kevin and Tai were worried. Ash's recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Bugs Bunny was waiting for them with important news.
  • Bugs: Here...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: ...is Meilin Rae, who has come to help while Ash is...indisposed.
  • Kevin: Please, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Kevin.
  • Kevin: Will she go, sir, when Ash comes back, sir?
  • Bugs: That depends.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Tai: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the characters.
  • Bugs: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • Ringo Starr: Meilin was hard to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Meilin: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • Ringo Starr: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Meilin: This is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • Ringo Starr: The rubbish turned out to be Marcella, Teodora and Natalie who were most offended.
  • Marcella: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • Ringo Starr: They fumed. Kevin and Tai had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings. The characters woke next morning feeling exhausted. Meilin, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Meilin: Oooh! Oooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Meilin: Look at me.
  • Ringo Starr: She purred to the passengers.
  • Meilin: I'm the latest Hong Kong girl, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Ash's bumpy old Marcella and Teodora now.
  • Ringo Starr: The passengers waited for Meilin to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indigment.
  • Meilin: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Meilin's Driver: Surely.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Meilin's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Meilin: I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: Kevin can do it. He loves messing about with pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: She began to shudder violently.
  • Meilin's Driver: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Meilin's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • Ringo Starr: Meilin lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Meilin: Told you.
  • Ringo Starr: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Meilin: It's fitter's orders.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Meilin: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exams me carefully. Meilin, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Meilin.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Bugs Bunny send us such a feeble...
  • Meilin: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Meilin.
  • Meilin: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • Ringo Starr: So they uncoupled the van, and Meilin purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Meilin: That's a good story.
  • Ringo Starr: She chuckled.
  • Meilin: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • Ringo Starr: But she said it to herself.

Kevin's Predicament

  • Ringo Starr: Meilin Rae's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened to bulls and cows, and she remain very lazy and stubborn. One day, Tai brought Natalie to the station where Kevin was grumbling shunting.
  • Tai: Hello, Kevin. I see Meilin's left the milk behind again.
  • Kevin: I had to make a special journey within I suppose. Anyone would think I've nothing to do.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Kevin.
  • Tai: Tell you what?
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Tai.
  • Tai: I'll take the milk, you fetch my Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Kevin had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the Beedrill about.
  • Kevin: Hurry along.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. The Beedrill grumbled to each other.
  • Beedrill: This is Tai's place. Kevin's got no right to poke his funnel in here and push us around.
  • Ringo Starr: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Beedrill: Pay Kevin out! Pay Kevin out!
  • Kevin: Come along.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Kevin.
  • Kevin: No nonsense.
  • Beedrill: We'll give him nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Giggled the Beedrill. But they followed so quietly that Kevin thought they were under control. Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead: All Trains Stop To Pin Down Brakes.
  • Kevin: Peep peep! Brakes, guard, please!
  • Ringo Starr: But before he could check them the Beedrill surged ahead.
  • Beedrill: On! On!
  • Ringo Starr: They cried.
  • Kevin: Help! Help!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Kevin. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag but was too late to switch Kevin to the runaway sidings. Frantically trying to grip the rails Kevin slid into the yard.
  • Kevin: Peep! Peep! Look out!
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: The break van was in smithereens. Kevin's driver and fireman had jumped clear but Kevin was stranded. Next day, Bugs Bunny arrived. Tai and Meilin had helped to clear the wreckage but Kevin remained on his perch of Beedrill.
  • Bugs: We must now try.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: To run a branch line with Tai and a Hong Kong girl. You have put us in an awkward.
  • Kevin: I am sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Kevin.
  • Bugs: You must stay here till we are ready. Perhaps it will teach you to be more careful with Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin sighed. The Beedrill groaned beneath his wheels. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Bugs Bunny spoke severely to Meilin too.
  • Bugs: My characters work hard. I send lazy characters away.
  • Ringo Starr: Meilin was ashamed.
  • Meilin: However, Tai says you worked hard after Kevin's accident. So you shall have another chance.
  • Meilin: Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: I will work hard, sir. Tai says he'll help me.
  • Bugs: Excellent. What Tai doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. But our Tai's an experienced character.
  • Ringo Starr: Next day, Ash came back, and Kevin was sent to be mended. Marcella and Teodora were delighted to see Ash again and he took them to a run at once. All were now friends, and Tai has taunt Meilin a great deal. She shooed a cow all by herself the other day. That show's you, doesn't it?

The Kongsel

  • Ringo Starr: Tom and Jerry are a cat and mouse duo. 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 a kongsel.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Tom: It's a what'll?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Tom.
  • Jerry: A kongsel, I think.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Jerry.
  • Jerry: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Tom: Coughs and sneezles spread kongsels.
  • Jerry: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the kongsel came.
  • Tom: It isn't!
  • Jerry: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Tom and Jerry were horrified.
  • Tom: But the kongsel will magic us away like the Beedrill.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • Ringo Starr: 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.
  • Ringo Starr: 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. Jerry hid behind, but Tom went bodly alongside. The kong looked up.
  • Donkey Kong: Do you mind?
  • Tom: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Tom.
  • Tom: I do. I want my Beedrill please.
  • Donkey Kong: These are mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the kong.
  • Donkey Kong: Go away.
  • Ringo Starr: Tom pretended to be frightened.
  • Tom: You're a big bully.
  • Ringo Starr: He whimpered.
  • Tom: You'll be sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran back and hid behind the Beedrill on the other side. Jerry now came forward.
  • Jerry: Beedrill stealer!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Jerry. 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.
  • Ringo Starr: The two birds gazed at him.
  • Donkey Kong: Are there two of you?
  • Tom: Yes, we're animals.
  • Donkey Kong: I might have known it.
  • Ringo Starr: Just then, Marty bustled up.
  • Marty: Tom and Jerry, why are you playing here?
  • Tom: We're not playing.
  • Ringo Starr: Protested Tom.
  • Jerry: We're rescuing our Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Squeaked Jerry.
  • Jerry: Even you don't take our Beedrill without asking, but this kongsel did.
  • Marty: There's no cause to be rude.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty severly.
  • Marty: This kong is a Metropolitan Vickers, kong electric type 2.
  • Ringo Starr: The animals were abashed.
  • Tom: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • Donkey Kong: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: The kong smiled.
  • Donkey Kong: Call me Donkey Kong. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the Beedrill.
  • Marty: That's all right then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • ​Marty: Now off you go, Tom and Jerry. Fetch Donkey Kong's Beedrill, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Donkey Kong.
  • Marty: But they're mattening at times.
  • Ringo Starr: Donkey Kong chuckled.
  • Donkey Kong: Mattening...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Donkey Kong: ...is the word.

Wrong Road

  • Ringo Starr: Ash's route is important, and so is Marty's. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Bugs Bunny does not allow the heavier main line characters like Scott to run on them. But one day, the way Scott was talking, he would have tought Bugs Bunny had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Scott: It's not fair!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Scott.
  • Marty: What isn't fair?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Marty.
  • Scott: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Marty: Never mind, Scott. I'm sure Donkey Kong will let you pull his Beedrill sometimes.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott spluttered.
  • Scott: I wont pull Donkey Kong's dirty Beedrill. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Marty: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Scott: Bugs Bunny would never approve.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Scott.
  • Scott: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott puffed away. Marty chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two characters pulled two fast trains from the station. Scott always leaves first with an express for the main line. Marty follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Scott to start. The fireman looked back towards the guard's van and saw something green waving.
  • Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • Ringo Starr: He thought the guard had waved his flag. Scott started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Scott had been stopped and brought back, Marty was already late with his train. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Marty along the main line. Scott was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Tom and Jerry peeped into the yard. There were no Beedrill for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Scott will be much better fun.
  • Tom: What's that?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Tom.
  • Jerry: Shh!
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Jerry.
  • Jerry: It's Scott.
  • Tom: It looks like Scott, but it can't be. Scott never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Jerry: If it isn't Scott.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jerry.
  • Jerry: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Tom: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Jerry: No Tom, this blocks used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott was alarmed.
  • Scott: I am Scott. Stop, stop!
  • Ringo Starr: When Donkey Kong suddenly arrived, Scott thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Scott: Donkey Kong, my dear character, save me.
  • Ringo Starr: Donkey Kong quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the Beedrill he had brought for Tom and Jerry. This made the animals behave at once. Scott thought he was wonderful.
  • Scott: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • Donkey Kong: Ah well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: It's just a knack.
  • Ringo Starr: Scott still believed that Donkey Kong saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?

Marty's Exploit

  • Ringo Starr: Sonic the Hedgehog was giving some visitors a tour of the land of Cartoons. It was their last afternoon, and Marty was preparing to take them to meet Tom and Jerry. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Shaggy: Did you see him straining?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Shaggy.
  • Al: Positively painful.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked Al.
  • Scott: Just pathetic.
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Scott.
  • Scott: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Virgil: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: Burst out Virgil.
  • Virgil: You're all jealous. Kevin's better than any of you.
  • Donkey Kong: You're right, Virgil.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: Marty's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Marty: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty, as he finally puffed out of the station. Tom and Jerry were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special. Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Marty took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Kevin. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Marty's feet slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Kevin.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned man. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Marty: I'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Promised Marty. Marty puffed and pulled his hardest. But his feet kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Marty. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with Beedrill.
  • Marty: That'll be much easier.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marty.
  • Marty: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Marty: I've done it, I've done it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Marty.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • Ringo Starr: And he listened happily to Marty's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearily, but unbeaten, Marty steamed in. Shaggy was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Marty: Peep peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Kevin, his driver and fireman. Virgil and Donkey Kong saw to it that Marty was left in peace. Scott and Al remain respectfully silent.

Ghost Boy

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

Woolly Bear

  • Ringo Starr: In summer, the gangers cut the long grass on the lineslide raking it into heaps to dry in the sun. At this time of year, Kevin stops where they have been cutting. The men load up his empty wagons and he pulls them to the station. Tai then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • Kevin: Wheeeeeeeesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Kevin: Don't be frightened, Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: He laughed.
  • Kevin: It's only me!
  • Ash: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're like...
  • Kevin: Ugly indeed. I'm...
  • Ash: A green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: Continued Ash firmly.
  • Ash: You crawl like one too.
  • Kevin: I don't!
  • Ash: Who's been late every afternoon this week?
  • Kevin: It's the hay.
  • Ash: I can't help that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Time's time, and Bugs Bunny relies on me to keep it. I can't if you crawl in the hay till all hours.
  • Kevin: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Kevin. He set off to collect some hay to take to the harbour.
  • Kevin: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly anyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Ash's corners. Ash says I'm always late.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Kevin: I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Ash? He can always catch up time farther on.
  • Ringo Starr: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (The crate of treacle appears held by a crane it falls down and lands on Kevin with a loud Wham!)
  • Ringo Starr: A crate of treacle was upset all over Kevin. Kevin was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away. The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Kevin's Driver: Look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the track. The line climbed here.
  • Kevin's Driver: Take a run at it, Kevin.
  • Ringo Starr: His driver advised. Kevin gathered speed. But the hay made the rails slippery and his feet wouldn't grip. Time after time he stalled with spinning feet and had to wait until the line ahead was cleared before he could start again. Everyone was waiting. Ash seethed impatiently.
  • Ash: Ten minutes late. I warned him. Passengers will complain and Bugs Bunny...
  • Ringo Starr: Then they all saw Kevin. They laughed and shouted.
  • (Passengers laughing)
  • Kevin: Sorry I'm late.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin panted.
  • Ash: Look what's crawled out of the hay!
  • Ringo Starr: Teased Ash.
  • Kevin: What's wrong?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Kevin.
  • Ash: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Ash.
  • Ash: It's worth been late to have seen you.
  • Ringo Starr: When Kevin got home, his driver showed him what he looked like in the mirror.
  • (Kevin gets shocked in the mirror)
  • Kevin: Bust my buffers! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just look like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Tai comes.
  • Ringo Starr: But it was no good. Ash told Tai all about it.
  • (Workmen are seen clearing the hay out of Kevin)
  • Ringo Starr: Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Ash and Tai made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawled about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Kevin thought they were really being very silly indeed!

Ash and The Missing Christmas Tree

  • Ringo Starr: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected on the land of Cartoons. All the characters were busy with the final preparations. Bugs Bunny wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Bugs Bunny was now waiting impatiently for Ash.
  • Bugs: Quickly now.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Ash. Virgil can look after Marcella and Teodora until you get back.
  • Ash: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Ash.
  • Bugs: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Promised Bugs.
  • Ash: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed Ash as he set off on his important mission. Ash collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Ash: I mustn't be late.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Ash: Bugs Bunny is relying on me.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistling bravely, Ash tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Poor Ash was snowed under. Meanwhile the other characters waited and waited. They were grumbling about Ash for being late.
  • Bugs: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Ash left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • Ringo Starr: The characters now felt sorry for Ash and cold but confident the cells set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Ash: Help! Help!
  • Ozzy: Hush!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ozzy.
  • Ozzy: I can hear something.
  • Drix: Probably the wind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Drix.
  • Ash: Help!
  • Ozzy: No listen.
  • Ringo Starr: Insisted Ozzy.
  • Ash: Over here!
  • Drix: Oh, it's Ash. Come on the poor wee trainer must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • Ringo Starr: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Ash's driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Ash and the precious Christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Bugs Bunny greeted them warmly.
  • Bugs: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • Ringo Starr: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Bugs: One, two, three!
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Bugs: Ladies and gentlemen and children, I give you three cheers for Ash Ketchum and all his friends who had made this occasion possible.
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly, there was a strange whirring sound. Kevin and Tai smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Superman touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Father Christmas. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Ash: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Ash to Kevin.
  • Ash: But it was worth it for this party. Happy Christmas, Kevin. Happy Christmas, everyone.
