  • (We open this spoof with the 1994-1997 Hanna Barbera Action logo)
  • (We are then followed by the 2015 Netflix logo)
  • (We soon show the Ash and The Lion's Den title card)
  • (We afterwards begin the story at night)
  • Michael Brandon: Long, long ago in a far away land there lived a young man named Ash. When Ash was a boy, he was taken from his home in Judah to live in a city called Babylon, where he went to school in the palace of the Babylonian king. Ash missed his home very much, and every day he'd pray that God would take care of his family, and his friends, and look after him too. God heard his prayers, and helped Ash become wise as grew older and everyone in the palace knew his wisdom. And one night while Babylon was sleeping, the king had a dream.
  • Ash: I am King Ash, I had a dream. And now I'm feeling rather frighten that I wish someone would tell me what it means.
  • Buff Frog: We are your wisemen, yes that is true. And though we're using all our wisdom we're afraid we can't explain your dream to you.
  • darius is outraged.
  • Lexi: What?!
  • Toffee: But there is one who is wiser still, and Daniel is his name. So before you take another sleeping pill, perhaps he can explain.
  • Ash: My name is Ash. That much is true, but it is god who gives me wisdom and through me he will explain your dreams to you.
  • Roy: His name is Ash, that's what he said. But when he talks this god if his, I think he's kinda looney in the head. I do
  • Michael Brandon: (not singing) Well, Ash was able to explain the king's dream. And this made the king, very happy.
  • King Saul: (back to singing) Ash you have enlightened me, your job I will expand. From now on I want you to sit right beside me as the second in command.
  • Michael Brandon: This was very good news for Ash, but very bad news for Mel. You see each one of them wanted to be second in command. But now that Ash got the job, Mel would have to do whatever he said. This made Mel very unhappy, and they immediately started thinking if ways to get rid of Ash.
  • All: Oh no! What we gonna do? The king likes Ash more than me and you. Oh no! What we gonna do? We gotta get him out of here. Oh no! What we gonna do? The king likes Ash more than me and you. Oh no! What we gonna do? We gotta get him out of here.
  • Meilin and Malinda: (singing the next verse while Mel still sings the first one) We could throw him, in the dungeon. We could let him, rot in jail. We could drag him, to the ocean. Have him eaten, by a whale.
  • Mel: We could throw him in the Tigris let him float a while, then we'll sit back and watch him meet a hungry crocodile. Then we'll send him on a camel's back and send him of to Ur, with a cowboy hat without a brim, a boot without a spur. Or we can give him jelly doughnuts and take them all away, or we can fill his ears with cheese balls and his nostrils with sorbet. We can use him as a footstool or a table to play Scrabble on, then tie him up and beat him up and throw him out of Babylon.
  • Meilin: (not singing) Or!
  • Mel: I like it.
  • Malinda: It's sneaky.
  • All: And it just might work! (back to singing) We could use him as a footstool or a table to play Scrabble on then tie him up and beat him up and throw him out of Babylon.
  • Michael Brandon: The very next morning, the wisemen appear before Lexi to try and trap Ash with their scheme.
  • Lexi: You wanted to see me?
  • Ash: Ahem. We got some news good Lexi, we fear your position is precarious. There are some people here in Babylon who won't give you your due, they'd rather bow to other men.
  • Lexi: Can this be so?
  • Meilin: Tis true
  • Lexi: (looking worried) Oh dear.
  • Mel: We brought a solution of our own design. (pulls out a contract) If you'll just sign this paper on the dotted line. It's explaining most concisely what we're all to do. Must bow our heads and bend our knees before no one, but you!
  • Lexi: I see. Ahem, just one more time now let's see if I got this straight. A law to prove once and for all that I am great. If I'm the king then no one must doubt my full supremacy. So from this day forth my citizens will pray to! Yes, but what if they don't.
  • Mel: If they don't obey...any citizen...will be thrown into the lion's den!
  • Lexi: (not singing) Oh yes? Well I guess that'll do it.
  • Anonymous female singing voice: So the law was passed, the deed was done. Ash's troubles have just begun.
  • Michael Brandon: Everyone in Babylon heard about the new law, including Ash. But Ash also new God's law, and God's told him that he should only pray to God. So the next day, just like any day, Ash prayed and thanked God for the sunshine and for all his friends. He also thanked God for giving him the courage to do what was right, even when he knew it could get him in trouble.
  • Ash: (opens one eye after the narrator talks) Did you say trouble? So you guys are wisemen? Well that's pretty cool have you always been wise, or did you have to go to school for that? Were you serious about that cheese ball thing? Hey I can see my house from here. lion's growl
  • Mel: Ash, because you violated section 4219-2r9-4000-6.1-7...b, of the code of Babylon, forbidding prayer to anyone but Lexi, you are hereby sentenced to be consumed by the lions. Goodbye.
  • Ash: Hey don't I get a phone caaaaalllllll?!
  • Meilin: Hey, Ash! You're sure going to have a lot of fun down there! We're not "ly-in".
  • Malinda: Uh yeah! You better be "ly-in" down... Um... 'cuz those lions are"lie"..."on" you! Ha ha!
  • Meilin: What? Mine was funny. Yours was...goofy. Lion's are going to ly-on you?! There going eat him! Not going to ly-on him.
  • Malinda: Well, well maybe there goning to lie on them then eat them. Or maybe one will lie on him while another on, maybe eats him. Or maybe...
  • (the two mean girls argue about what will happen as they push a giant rock over the hole to the lion's den making the den completely dark)
