Narrator: "Baloo the Bear has lived in Disneyland for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He likes every part of it. From the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Baloo always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too."
Baloo's Driver: "Come on, Baloo."
Narrator: "He would sometimes say."
Baloo's Driver: "We've made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest."
Narrator: "Baloo loved it here. The forest was full of broad oaks and tall pines.
Baloo could remember the day long ago where he and Friar Tuck brought some new trees to be planted and Sebastian and Copper helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others on the hillside. Baloo always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why, but his driver understood."
Baloo's Driver: "It's peaceful."
Narrator: "He said to Baloo.
But one night, everything changed. The Disney characters were resting in the house."
Narrator: "Said Pongo."
Pongo: "Can you hear a strange whistling sound?"
Friar Tuck: "It's the wind blowing outside our house."
Narrator: "Replied Friar Tuck."
Friar Tuck: "But I've never heard it like this before."
Donald Duck: "Do you know?"
Narrator: "Added Donald."
Donald Duck: "If Sir Ector wasn't here now, I'd say it was him thundering by with the express flowers."
Narrator: "All the Disney characters laughed, except Baloo."
Baloo: "I hope the wind won't harm the forest."
Narrator: "By morning, the fierce winds had gone, but the damage was done. Baloo's driver came to see him in the house."
Baloo's Driver: "Trees have fallen on the path. We must help clear the path."
Narrator: "Raccoon Twin #1 set off with the breakdown crane, and Baloo followed.
Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Baloo felt sad."
Baloo: "What will happen to all the animals who live here?"
Narrator: "He thought.
When Baloo's wagons were full of logs, he took them to the timber mill where they would be turned into furniture and other things. Baloo was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was still sorry to lose part of his forest."
Friar Tuck: "Oh dear."
Narrator: "Sighed Friar Tuck to Pongo."
Friar Tuck: "I wish there was something we can do to make things better again."
Pongo: "Yes, indeed."
Narrator: "Replied Pongo."
Pongo: "But what? We can't mend broken trees."
Narrator: "Friar Tuck puffed slowly into the yard."
Mickey Mouse: "Hello, Friar Tuck."
Narrator: "Said Mickey Mouse."
Mickey Mouse: "You do look glum."
Friar Tuck: "I'm sad about the trees."
Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."
Friar Tuck: "And so is Baloo. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it is gone."
Mickey Mouse: "We'll soon put that right. I have an important job for you, Friar Tuck. I would like you to take some wagons to the forest."
Narrator: "When the wagons arrived, Friar Tuck was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees all ready for planting."
Friar Tuck: "This is the best job I've ever had!"
Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck happily.
When Baloo returned, he was most surprised. There were Sebastian and Copper busily helping the workmen clear the torn stumps and branches."
Sebastian: "Look, Baloo."
Narrator: "Called Sebastian."
Sebastian: "We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see."
Narrator: "Now Baloo can see the new trees growing strong and tall, and the animals are coming back. Sometimes, everywhere is very quiet. And other times, Baloo could hear leaves rustling, or a bird's wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sound of children laughing. And always, he is happy here."
