Ash and The Rumours

  • Alec Baldwin: Ash Ketchum loves his branch line. One day, when he stopped at a small station, some children looked sad.
  • Girl: They closed our playground and our favorite sand pit.
  • Boy: Teacher said the sand is soil and too dirty play in.
  • Children: Please help us Ash.
  • Ash: I'll see what i can do.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Ash kindly. Ash hoped things weren't quite as bad as the children had made them out to be. But as he passed their playground, a large sign read: Playground Closed Until Further Notice.
  • Ash: The Children were right.
  • Alec Baldwin: Thought Ash sadly. He puffed into the yard and was just about to tell the other characters about the playground when Rikochet rushed in.
  • Terry: You look glum, little Rikochet.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Terry.
  • Rikochet: Wilhelmina told driver that she's using Superman to show a visitor the island instead of any of us characters.
  • Terry: Despicable!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Terry.
  • Virgil: Disgusting!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Virgil.
  • Al: Characters are meant to take visitors around our island not that whirlybird thing.
  • Alec Baldwin: Al exclaimed. Terry was the first to see Superman.
  • Terry: Superman thinks he can go faster than me. I'll show him.
  • Alec Baldwin: Next, it was Virgil's turn.
  • Virgi: Wilhelmina has chosen Superman because he's more important than me. Well he's not. Superman can't fly through tunnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet stopped by a signal on his branch line near a field were sheep were grazing. Superman hovered for a while then buzzed away.
  • Rikochet: I know what's he's doing. He's just counting sheep.
  • Alec Baldwin: And Rikochet puffed along his line, feeling much better about his things. That evening, the characters talked about the situation.
  • Terry: Superman wants to get rid of us.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Terry.
  • Virgil: He doesn't need tunnels.
  • Alec Baldwin: Added Virgil.
  • Rikochet: Don't worry, he's just counting sheep.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Rikochet.
  • Terry: Counting sheep? Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Snorted Terry.
  • Terry: He's counting how many engines he can get rid of. He'll see how useful i am tomorrow.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ash wanted to mention the children's playground, but solving the mystery of Superman and the visitor came first. The next day, Terry was travelling to collect his train.
  • Driver: We'll show that whirlybird just how fast you can go, Terry.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. But because they were watching Superman, they missed a signal and went onto the wrong line. Terry was travelling to trouble. Ahead was a tunnel under repair. His driver reduced steam and braked hard, but it was too late.
  • (Crash!)
  • Alec Baldwin: Later, Ash pulled Terry clear with the breakdown train. Wilhelmina spoke severly to Terry's Driver.
  • Ash: Will Terry be scrapped, ma'am?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked Ash sadly.
  • Wilhelmina: What makes you think that?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Wilhelmina. Ash decided to pluck up courage.
  • Ash: Because the characters think the visitor was here to see if he can be replaced by Superman.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wilhelmina laughed.
  • Wilhelmina: Well the characters are wrong and you shouldn't listened to rumours, Ash. This gentleman is making a new playground for the children. It was easy to find a suitable site from up in the air.
  • Visitor: And what's more.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the visitor.
  • Visitor: That tunnel sand will be perfect for the playground. Sand we found by accident you might say.
  • Alec Baldwin: Wilhelmina still uses Superman to fly above the land. But all the characters know that Superman is spying on them. He is just being very useful.

Al and The Trouble With Trees

  • Alec Baldwin: Ash Ketchum had been working in the coal yards all day. The Pokemon Trainer was covered in coal dust.
  • Ash's Driver: We can't clean you up tonight, Ash.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Ash's Driver: There's a problem with the hose pipe.
  • Ash: Bother!
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: A bath would make me feel much better. The others are sure to say i look silly.
  • Alec Baldwin: But the characters were too busy arguing to notice Ash. Al was talking loudest of all.
  • Al: I deserve a new coat of paint. Wilhelmina says i'm the pride of the line and...
  • Virgil: Rubbish!
  • Alec Baldwin: Huffed Virgil.
  • Virgil: We're all the pride of the line.
  • Rikochet: It's been like this all day.
  • Alec Baldwin: Confided Rikochet to Ash.
  • Rikochet: Al is getting a new coat of paint and won't stop boasting about it.
  • Ash: Why, Al! I'm the one who needs a new coat. Look at me.
  • Al: I rather not.
  • Alec Baldwin: Retorted Al.
  • Al: You're not a pleasant sight and wouldn't understand that needs of a really important character.
  • Alec Baldwin: Ash was fuming. Next morning as Al was being repainted, Virgil had an accident.
  • (Crash)
  • Al: If you can't push cars properly, Virgil, why not talk to a tree instead. You know how much you like the forest.
  • Virgil: As a matter of fact, bossy boiler, Wilhelmina is inspecting the island for trees that have fallen too close to the line. She's worried that might cause trouble.
  • Al: Pah!
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed Al.
  • Al: If i came upon a tree i just push it aside.
  • Virgil: Really!?
  • Alec Baldwin: Virgil replied. Soon, Al was showing off his paintwork.
  • Al: Make way for an important character.
  • Rikochet: You wouldn't feel important if one of those trees crashed on you. You feel hurt.
  • Alec Baldwin: Reproached Rikochet.
  • Al: Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!
  • Freakazoid: You should be careful, Al. Trees can be just as powerful as characters.
  • Alec Baldwin: Adviced Freakazoid.
  • Al: Oh please! Now excuse me, Wilhelmina needs me to pull the express.
  • Alec Baldwin: And he huffed away. But Al was wrong.
  • Wilhelmina: You must go to the yards and collect an important goods train Al. It's heavy so be careful.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Wilhelmina.
  • Al: But ma'am, i've just been repainted. Can't Ash and Rikochet do it? They're dirty and like working with freight cars.
  • Wilhelmina: Really useful characters don't argue.
  • Alec Baldwin: So Al didn't. By the time he arrived at the yards, the weather was changed for the worse.
  • Freight Car: Your color's nice, Al. Pity about your face though.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said a freight car. Al ignored them and set off. Soon they came to a hill and his driver knew they were in for a dificult time. An old tree close to the tracks was being blown by the strong winds and the rain had weakened the slope. All of a sudden, the tree moved.
  • Al: Oh help!
  • Alec Baldwin: Cried Al.
  • Al: Go away!
  • Alec Baldwin: But of course, the tree couldn't. Al tried to reverse away from the tree but his train was too heavy. Then he heard a whistle.
  • Al's Driver: It's Ash.
  • Alec Baldwin: Called his driver. Al felt embarrased and worried that Ash would laugh at him, but Ash didn't. He knew it was no time for teasing.
  • Ash: Peep, peep! I'm ready!
  • Alec Baldwin: Whistled Ash.
  • Al: So am i.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Al.
  • Al: As ready as i'll ever be.
  • Alec Baldwin: They were just in time.
  • (The tree lands on the ground with a loud wham!)
  • Alec Baldwin: Later, Al spoke to Ash.
  • Al: Rikochet and Freakazoid were so right to warn me. Thank you for rescuing me, Ash.
  • Ash: Oh, that's all right. We characters have to pull together whatever the weather.
  • Alec Baldwin: Just then, Scott bustled in.
  • Scott: Wilhelmina thinks you're both brave characters. Ash, you're going to have a new coat of paint, and Al, Wilhelmina says that tomorrow you'll pull the special express.
  • Alec Baldwin: Everyone was very happy.

Rikochet Lives Happy Ever After

  • Alec Baldwin: The characters on the land of YTV loved holiday time. Rikochet was taking some freight cars to the docks. Freakazoid was working at a field close to the line.
  • Freakazoid: Hello, Rikochet. Nice day for it, isn't it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet was confused.
  • Rikochet: Nice day for what?
  • Freakazoid: Nora Shepard's daughter is getting married today.
  • Rikochet: Oh yes. Of course.
  • Alec Baldwin: But when Rikochet saw Nora Shepard, she was standing by her gate, waving a red flag.
  • Rikochet's Driver: What's the matter?
  • Alec Baldwin: Asked the driver.
  • Nora: I've forgotten about the good luck package for the bride.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet was puzzled.
  • Rikochet: What's a good luck package?
  • Nora: It must contain something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Can you help please?
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet didn't know how but his driver was determined.
  • Rikochet's Driver: We'll certainly try.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet had to stop at Scott's station to take on water.
  • Rikochet: We've got to find a good luck package. Do you know what that is?
  • Scott: Oh, yes indeed. Something old, something new...
  • Rikochet: Something borrowed and something blue.
  • Alec Baldwin: Rikochet cut in.
  • Rikochet: But where do we find them?
  • Alec Baldwin: Scott smiled.
  • Scott: They're probably staring you in your smokebox. Now I had to take a special train. I'm taking guests to the wedding.
  • Alec Baldwin: When Rikochet arrived at the docks, he looked all around him. Suddenly he saw a freight car. It was loaded with a new set of shiny buffers.
  • Rikochet: Look! Look! There's something new.
  • Rikochet's Driver: They're quite right, Rikochet.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Rikochet's Driver: Those buffers are just the ticket. I'll speak to the foreman.
  • Alec Baldwin: He returned shortly.
  • Rikochet's Driver: Foreman says we can use them and borrow the freight car as well. So that's two things we found. Something borrowed and something new.
  • Rikochet: But what about the other things?
  • Rikochet's Driver: I'm sure we'll find them too and we best be on our way.
  • Alec Baldwin: As Rikochet was shunting some freight cars into a siding, he heard a voice.
  • Sashi: Hello, Rikochet.
  • Alec Baldwin: There was Sashi Kobayashi who he and Ash had rescued from scrap.
  • Rikochet: You're it!
  • Alec Baldwin: Squeaked Rikochet.
  • Sashi: I'm what it?
  • Alec Baldwin: Said Sashi.
  • Rikochet: The something old for the wedding.
  • Alec Baldwin: And then Rikochet explained.
  • Rikochet: Now we only had to find something blue. But what and where?
  • Rikochet's Driver: You'll see.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver. At last, they reached the village where the wedding was to take place. Ahead was an old engine shed.
  • Rikochet's Driver: What did you think of this, Rikochet?
  • Alec Baldwin: Laughed his driver.
  • Rikochet: Well bust my boiler, Ash. What are you doing here?
  • Ash: I've to something blue.
  • Alec Baldwin: Replied Ash.
  • Rikochet's Driver: Now, Rikochet.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said his driver.
  • Rikochet's Driver: Nora's chosen you to be her special guest.
  • Alec Baldwin: When the bride and groom left the church for the party, Wilhelmina adressed everybody.
  • Wilhelmina: Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the good luck package. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. All found by Rikochet and his crew.
  • Alec Baldwin: The characters whistled and everyone cheered.
  • Bride: Thank you, Ash and thank you, Rikochet.
  • Alec Baldwin: Said the bride.
  • Bride: It's the best good luck package ever.
  • Alec Baldwin: And she kissed Rikochet. Ash laughed as Rikochet blushed bright red.
  • Rikochet: I love weddings.
  • Alec Baldwin: Sighed Rikochet that night.
  • Ash: Did you enjoy your kiss?
  • Alec Baldwin: But Rikochet was embarrassed and pretended to be asleep.
