Narrator: "Bashful is a dwarf who lives in a cottage in Disneyland. He's a cheeky little dwarf with a beard, an orange shirt, a big hat, and a pair of brown shoes.
He's a fussy little dwarf, too, always bringing animals about ready for the bigger dwarfs to take on long journeys.
And when dwarfs come in, he brings the animals back home so that the big dwarfs can go and rest.
Bashful thinks no dwarf works as hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Grumpy, the biggest and proudest dwarf of all.
Bashful likes whistling rudely at him."
Bashful: "Wake up, Lazy Bones, why don't you work hard, like me?"
Narrator: "One day, after taking some animals on a Journey, Grumpy arrived back at the sidings, very tired. He was just going to sleep when Bashful came up in his cheeky way."
Bashful: "Wake up, Lazy Bones, do some hard work for a change! You can't catch me!"
Narrator: "And off he ran, laughing.
Instead of going to sleep again, Grumpy thought how he could get back at Bashful.
One morning, Bashful wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His stamina was low and there was not enough strength. It was nearly time for the express. People were waiting, but the animals weren't ready.
At last, Bashful started."
Bashful: "Oh dear, oh dear!"
Narrator: "He yawned.
He fussed into the station where Grumpy was waiting."
Grumpy: "Hurry up, you."
Narrator: "Said Grumpy."
Bashful: "Hurry yourself!"
Narrator: "Replied Bashful.
Grumpy Began Making his plan."
Narrator: "Said Grumpy."
Grumpy: "I will."
Narrator: "And almost before the animals stopped moving, Grumpy reversed quickly and held the first animal's paw."
Grumpy: "Get in quickly, please."
Narrator: "He whistled.
Bashful usually pushed behind the animals to help them start, but they always let go of him first. This time, Grumpy started so quickly, they forgot to let go of Bashful. Grumpy's chance had come."
Grumpy: "Come on, come on!"
Narrator: "Puffed Grumpy to the animals.
The line went faster and faster, too fast for Bashful. He wanted to stop, but he couldn't!"
Bashful: "Hey, hey, stop, stop!"
Grumpy: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"
Narrator: "Laughed Grumpy."
Forest Animals: "You can't get away, you can't get away!"
Narrator: "Laughed the animals.
Poor Bashful was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath, and his feet hurt him, but he had to go on."
Bashful: "I shall never be the same again."
Narrator: "He thought sadly."
Bashful: "My feet will be quite worn out."
Narrator: "At last, they stopped at a station.
Bashful let go, and he felt very silly and exhausted.
Next, he sat on a turntable, thinking of everyone laughing at him.
And then he ran onto a siding, out of the way."
Grumpy: "Well, little Bashful."
Narrator: "Chuckled Grumpy."
Grumpy: "Now you know what hard work means, don't you?"
Narrator: "Poor Bashful couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest, and had a long, long drink.
He went home very slowly, and was careful afterwards never to be cheeky to Grumpy again."
