A Proud Day For Raimundo

  • George Carlin: One night, Shaggy and Terry were alone with Raimundo. Although Steven was beginning to think well of them. Whenever a chance came the other characters will talk of nothing but bootlace.
  • Shaggy: Remember when they had to use a bootlace to get you out of trouble Raimundo?
  • George Carlin: They would tease. Raimundo tried to get back by talking about Shaggy who got shut up in a tunnel and Terry who got stuck on a hill. But they wouldn't listen.
  • Terry: You talk too much little Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Terry: A fine strong character like me has something to talk about. I'm the only character who can pull the express. When I'm not there, they need two characters. Think of that. I've pulled expresses for years, and have never once lost my way. I seem to know the right line by instinct.
  • George Carlin: Every wise character knows that the signalman sets the switches to make the characters run on the right track. But Terry was so proud he had forgotten.
  • Terry: Wake up, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Terry next morning.
  • Terry: It's time for the express. What are you doing? Odd Jobs? Ah well. We all have to begin somewhere, don't we? Run along and get my coaches. Don't be late.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo went to get Terry's coaches. They were all shining with new paint. He was careful not to bump them and they followed him smoothly into the station, singing happily...
  • Coaches: We're going away, we're going away.
  • Raimundo: I wish I was going with you.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: I should love to pull the express and go flying above the line!
  • George Carlin: Terry with much noise and blowing off steam, got ready to back on to the train. Steven was on the train with other important people and as soon as they heard the conductor's whistle, Terry started.
  • Terry: Look at me now! Look at me now!
  • George Carlin: He puffed and the coaches glided after him.
  • Terry: Boop boop boop boop boop! Goodbye, little Raimundo, see you tomorrow!
  • George Carlin: Raimundo watched the train disappeared and then went back to work. He pushed some Beedrill into their proper sidings and went to fetch the coaches for another train. Raimundo had just brought the coaches into the platform when he heard a mournful noise. There was Terry trying to sneak into the station without being noticed.
  • Raimundo: Hello, Terry. Is it tomorrow?
  • George Carlin: Terry didn't answer. He just let off steam feebly.
  • Raimundo: Did you lose your weight, Terry?
  • Terry: No, it was lost for me. I was switched off the main line onto the loop. I have to go all around and back again.
  • Raimundo: Perhaps it was instinct.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo. All the passengers were shouting at the ticket window.
  • Passengers: We want our money back!
  • George Carlin: Steven climbed onto a cart and blew the conductor's whistle so loudly that they all stopped to look at him. Then he promised a new train at once.
  • Steven: Terry can't do it. Will you pull it for us, Raimundo?
  • Raimundo: Yes sir, I'll try.
  • George Carlin: So Raimundo was coupled on, and everyone got in.
  • Steven: Do your best, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Raimundo: Come along, come along!
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Coaches: You're pulling us well, you're pulling us well!
  • George Carlin: Sang the coaches.
  • Raimundo: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Raimundo. Bridges and stations flashed by the passengers cheered and they soon reached the station. Everyone said thank you to Raimundo and Steven was very impressed.
  • Steven: Well done. Would you like to pull the express sometimes?
  • Raimundo: Yes, please.
  • George Carlin: Answered Raimundo. Next day when Raimundo came by, Terry was pushing Beedrill.
  • Terry: I like some quiet work for a change.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Terry: I'm teaching these Beedrill manners. You did well with those coaches I hear. Good, we'll show them.
  • George Carlin: And he gave his Beedrill a bump. Raimundo and Terry are now good friends. Raimundo sometimes takes the express to give Terry a rest. Terry never talks about bootlaces, and they are both quite agreed on a subject of Beedrill.

Raimundo In A Mess

  • George Carlin: Jackie and Kitana were enjoying their new job on the land of YTV. But they do look old fashioned and did need new paint. Raimundo was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • Raimundo: Yech! What dirty objects!
  • George Carlin: He would say. At last, Jackie lost patience.
  • Jackie: Raimundo?
  • George Carlin: He asked.
  • Jackie: Why are you red?
  • Raimundo: I am a splendid boy.
  • George Carlin: Answered Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Jackie: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie earnestly.
  • Jackie: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be remind how the time the bootlace have been use to mend a hole in his coaches. At the end of the line, Raimundo left his coaches and got out to his next train. It was a slow freight, stopping at every station to pick up and set down Beedrill, Raimundo hated slow freight trains.
  • Raimundo: Dirty Beedrill from dirty sidings! Yech!
  • George Carlin: Starting an only a few, he picked up more and more Beedrill at each station till he had a long train. At first, the Beedrill behaved well, but Raimundo bumped them so crossly that they were determined to get back at him. Presently, they approached the top of Terry's Hill. Heavy freight trains halt here to set the brakes. Al had had an accident with Beedrill before and should have remembered this.
  • Driver: Wait, Raimundo, wait!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver, but Raimundo wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he would say to Jackie when they next met. The Beedrill's chance had come.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah! Hurrah!
  • George Carlin: They laughed, and banging their buffers they pushed him down the hill.
  • Beedrill: On, on!
  • George Carlin: Yelled the Beedrill.
  • Raimundo: I've got to stop, I've got to stop!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Raimundo. Disaster lay ahead.
  • (Raimundo crashes into the tar wagons)
  • George Carlin: Something sticky splashed all over Raimundo. He had run into two tar wagons, and was black from smokebox to cab. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar wagons and some cars were all to pieces. Jackie and Alex were sent to help and came as quickly as they could.
  • Jackie: Look here, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Explained Jackie.
  • Jackie: Whatever is that dirty object?
  • Alex: That's Raimundo, didn't you know?
  • Jackie: It's Raimundo's shape.
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: But Raimundo is a splendid boy and you'll never see his paint dirty.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo pretended he hadn't heard. Jackie and Alex cleared away the unhurt Beedrill and help Raimundo home. Steven met them.
  • Steven: Well done, Alex and Jackie.
  • George Carlin: He turned to Raimundo.
  • Steven: Fancy letting your Beedrill run away. I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen. You must be cleaned at once. Jackie shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Jackie: Please sir, can Kitana have one too?
  • George Carlin: Said Jackie.
  • Steven: Certainly, Jackie.
  • Jackie: Oh thank you, sir. She will pleased.
  • George Carlin: All Raimundo could do as watch Jackie as he ran off happily with the news.

Old Iron

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

No Joke For Raimundo

  • George Carlin: Raimundo is an ordinary Xiaolin Monk. He can arrange both Beedrill and Arcanine. He's proud of his civilian outfit and so was his driver.
  • Raimundo's Driver: Everyone says you brighten up your day, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: One morning, Raimundo whistled loudly at the other characters.
  • Raimundo: Look at me! I'm a smartest most useful Xiaolin Monk on the line!
  • Ash: Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: We're all useful. Steven says so and he's headed the whole railway.
  • Alex: You know what, Raimundo?
  • George Carlin: Added Alex.
  • Raimundo: What?
  • George Carlin: Replied Raimundo.
  • Alex: You're getting all puffed out.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo huffed away. Later, he was still boasting.
  • Raimundo: I'm the pride of the line.
  • Terry: I saw you're pulling Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Terry.
  • Terry: You're only a goods characters.
  • Raimundo: I've pull Arcanine too.
  • Terry: Not as much as I do.
  • Raimundo: But Steven has plans for me.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo was making this up but Terry believe him.
  • Terry: What plans?
  • Raimundo: Uh, wait and see. Oh dear.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Raimundo: Now what'll I do?
  • George Carlin: Ash was shunting shiny new Arcanine.
  • Ash: Good morning, Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Are those Arcanine for me?
  • George Carlin: Asked Raimundo hopefully.
  • Ash: No, these are for Terry's Express. I'll fetch your Beedrill next.
  • George Carlin: But Raimundo was going to play a trick on the other characters.
  • Raimundo: Actually, Ash, I'm taking the Arcanine. Steven ask me to tell you.
  • Ash: What about the Beedrill?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Raimundo: Uh, give them to Terry.
  • Ash's Driver: Come on, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Ash's Driver: Orders are orders.
  • George Carlin: So when Raimundo's driver returned, Raimundo was coupled to the Arcanine and he puffed away. Ash returned with the Beedrill. And a few minutes later, Terry arrived.
  • Terry: Where's the express?
  • George Carlin: Ash told him about Raimundo.
  • Ash: And so here are your Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Terry was very cross and so his driver.
  • Terry's Driver: Wait'll Steven hears about this.
  • George Carlin: Meanwhile Raimundo was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Raimundo: What a clever plan! What a clever plan!
  • George Carlin: He chuffed. Then he saw Steven.
  • Steven: Some jokes are funny, but not this one, Raimundo. You have caused confusion.
  • Raimundo: Yes Sir.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Steven: You will now stay in your shed until you are wanted.
  • George Carlin: The other characters teased Raimundo.
  • Terry: I wonder who'd be pulling the express today?
  • George Carlin: Said Terry.
  • Shaggy: I expect it'll be you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Raimundo is stuck in the shed for being silly.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo felt sad. Next morning, he went back to work.
  • Ash: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Ash.
  • Ash: Good to see you out and about again.
  • Raimundo: I'm sorry I tricked you.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Are these my Beedrill?
  • Ash: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash kindly.
  • Ash: They're please to have you back.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo set off to the harbour with a train of Beedrill. He bustled about all day pushing and pulling them into place.
  • Raimundo's Driver: Time to go home now, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver at last.
  • Raimundo's Driver: No Beedrill or passengers. Just we too.
  • George Carlin: But his driver was wrong.
  • Railway Inspector: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Called the man.
  • Railway Inspector: I have a meeting with Steven and I mustn't be late. May I ride back with you?
  • Raimundo's Driver: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Raimundo's driver. Then he whispered to Raimundo.
  • Raimundo's Driver: This gentleman is a railway inspector.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo was most impressed. He steamed along the line as smoothly and quickly as he could. Steven was waiting on the platform and the railway inspector greeted him warmly.
  • Railway Inspector: This clever Xiaolin Monk gave me a splendid ride. You must be proud of him.
  • Steven: Yes indeed. Once again, you are a really useful Xiaolin Monk.

Raimundo Learns A Lesson

  • George Carlin: Raimundo was enjoying his life on the land of YTV, but he still had a lot to learn.
  • Steven: You're a special mixed traffic character.
  • George Carlin: Said Steven.
  • Steven: You can pull Arcanine or Beedrill quite easily, but you must learn by your mistakes.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo knew what Steven meant. He could well remember that dreadful accident on his first day.
  • Kevin: Be careful with the coaches, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said kind Kevin.
  • Kevin: They don't like being bumped.
  • George Carlin: Everyone came to admire Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: I'm really a splendid character.
  • George Carlin: He thought and suddenly let off steam.
  • Raimundo: Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: A shower of water fell on Steven's nice new top hat. Just then, the conductor blew his whistle and Raimundo thought they had better go.
  • Raimundo: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed to Kevin.
  • Kevin: Don't push, don't push!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Kevin. The Arcanine were grumbling too.
  • Arcanine: Don't go so fast, don't go so fast!
  • George Carlin: But Raimundo wouldn't listen. When at last they stopped at the next station two Arcanine were beyond the platform. They have to go back to let the passengers out. But no one seems to know about Steven's new hat so Raimundo felt happier. Presently they came to the station where Ash was waiting with his two coaches.
  • Ash: Hello, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Feeling better? That's good. Oh, that's my conductor's whistle. I must go. I don't know what Steven to do without me to run this branch line.
  • George Carlin: And he puffed off importantly. Kevin and Raimundo passed the field where Raimundo had had his accident. The fences were mended and the cows were back again. They ended their journey and rested before setting off for home. Raimundo was still wondering what Steven would have to say about his new hat. Next morning, he spoke severely to Raimundo.
  • Steven: If you can't behave, I shall take away your red coat and have you painted blue.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo didn't like that at all. He was very rough with the grumbling Arcanine as he brought them to the platform.
  • Raimundo: Don't talk, come on! Terry never fetches his own Arcanine.
  • George Carlin: He thought to himself.
  • Raimundo: And he's only painted blue.
  • George Carlin: To make Raimundo even more cross, this time no one came near him.
  • Raimundo: I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Raimundo: They thought Terry is the only character who can pull Arcanine. Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Raimundo.
  • Arcanine: You're going too fast, you're going to fast!
  • George Carlin: Replied the Arcanine. Raimundo laughed and tried to go faster, but the Arcanine wouldn't let him.
  • Arcanine: We're going to stop, we're going to stop!
  • (Raimundo soon comes to a complete halt)
  • Raimundo: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Raimundo asked his driver.
  • Driver: The brakes were on, leak in the pipe most likey. You banged the Arcanine enough to make a leak in anything.
  • Conductor: How should we mend it?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: We'll do it with newspaper and a leather bootlace.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Conductor: Well, where's the bootlace coming from?
  • George Carlin: Asked the conductor.
  • Driver: Ask the passengers.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Conductor: You have a leather bootlace there.
  • George Carlin: Said the Conductor to a smartly dressed man.
  • Conductor: Please give it to me.
  • Man: I won't.
  • Conductor: Then I'm afraid the train will just stop where it is.
  • George Carlin: The passengers all said what a bad railway it was. Then they told the man how bad he was instead. Everyone was very cross. At last, he handed his laces over. The driver tied a pad of newspapers tightly round the hole in the brake pipe, and Raimundo was able to pull the train. But he was a sadder and wiser Raimundo, and took care never to bump Arcanine again.

Alex, Raimundo and The Fruitful Day

  • George Carlin: It was a splendid morning on the land of YTV. Raimundo was feeling very pleased with himself. His red paint gleamed in the sunshine as he sped along the line. He reached the junction just as Alex puffed in with some Beedrill. Raimundo was surprised to see him.
  • Raimundo: What are you doing here, Alex? You should be at the station by now.
  • Alex: I know.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Alex.
  • Alex: These Beedrill had been troublesome all morning.
  • Raimundo: That's no excuse, Alex. Nothing should stop us. Steven relies on us to be on time. Now if you excuse me, I'll be on my way.
  • George Carlin: And Raimundo puffed importantly away.
  • Alex: Bossy buffers.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Alex. Raimundo arrived at the harbour. It was market day. The harbour yard was filled with the sweet smell of fruits from far away lands. The fruit was delivered in big ships. Raimundo watched as strawberries, oranges, melons and bananas were carefully loaded onto his Beedrill. Then, he set off for the station on the main line. On the way, he met Ash.
  • Raimundo: Really reliable, that's me!
  • George Carlin: Panted Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Pity the same can't be sent for Alex. Goodbye!
  • Suzy and Pietra: What was all that about?
  • George Carlin: Gasped Suzy and Pietra.
  • Ash: That was trouble. Trouble for Raimundo, just wait and see.
  • George Carlin: Alex was back in the yard and busy shunting. He had the Beedrill in good order and was making up for lost time. But the stationmaster had bad news.
  • Driver: What's happened?
  • George Carlin: Asked Alex's Driver.
  • Stationmaster: Raimundo's brakes have jammed we need Alex's help right away.
  • George Carlin: Alex quickly set off to the rescue. Raimundo was stuck on the line and looking glum. Alex couldn't help laughing.
  • Alex: Got yourself in a bit of a jam eh, Raimundo, a sticky situation?
  • Raimundo: Be quiet! It's not funny having jammed brakes.
  • Alex: And not very reliable either. I'm surprised you let it happen, Raimundo. Nothing should stop us characters.
  • Driver: That's enough, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Driver: Can you push these Beedrill?
  • Alex: Of course I can. There's no time to lose. Raimundo has done too much of that already.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo angrily hissed steam as Alex was coupled to the Beedrill.
  • Alex: Off we go!
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: I'll have to go fast to get there in time. Those big characters are so unreliable.
  • Driver: Be careful, Alex.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But Alex was in a hurry. He didn't see that the switch had failed and that he had been diverted into a siding.
  • Driver: Look out, Alex!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his driver and applied the brakes, but it was too late.
  • (Alex crashes into the van)
  • George Carlin: The driver and fireman had jumped clear but squash fruit squirted all over Alex.
  • (The squash fruit covers Alex completely)
  • George Carlin: Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Alex, you were not to blame for the switch failure. But I do not run a jam factory.
  • Alex: Yes sir, uh, no sir.
  • George Carlin: And Alex squelched sadly away. That night, the shed was silent. Raimundo and Alex felt very sorry for themselves. At last, Ash spoke.
  • Ash: You know...
  • George Carlin: He said to no character in particular.
  • Ash: There's more than one way to get jammed. We all learned that today.
  • George Carlin: Still there were silence.
  • Ash: What's more, we also learned that sometimes when characters helped each other out of a jam, things can still go wrong.
  • Voice: So.
  • George Carlin: Said a voice.
  • Ash: So, that means learned a lot today. And there for...
  • George Carlin: Then came a chorus.
  • Characters: We're really useful characters after all!

Raimundo Goes Buzz Buzz

  • George Carlin: Heathcliff the Cat enjoyed his work at the Cartoon University. Birds were singing and apples were ripening on the trees. It was a splendid day.
  • Raimundo: Hello, Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: You look as bright and cheerful as my red paint.
  • Heathcliff: Oh I am.
  • George Carlin: Replied Heathcliff.
  • Raimundo: What's that noise?
  • Heathcliff: It's the bees.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Heathcliff.
  • Heathcliff: They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. The vicar says his bees make good honey and he's giving some of them to his friends.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Donkey Kong hummed in.
  • Donkey Kong: Take care you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo didn't like being told what to do by a diesel and he buzzed away.
  • Donkey Kong: Goodbye, Heathcliff.
  • George Carlin: Called Donkey Kong and set off to see Virgil at the next station. Bumpty and Raphael were busy arranging Beedrill. But they scampered off when they saw Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: I remember the first time I met those two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: They nearly made my eyes pop out. Kevin soon put a stop in their games.
  • Virgil: Kevin is the only one who can keep Bumpty and Raphael in order.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Virgil.
  • Virgil: I sometimes call them "The Bees".
  • Donkey Kong: A good name.
  • George Carlin: Replied Donkey Kong.
  • Donkey Kong: Their terrors when the start buzzing around.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo bustled in.
  • Raimundo: What's that, Virgil? Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects after all, so don't let that buzz box diesel tell you different.
  • Virgil: His name is Donkey Kong, and he didn't. We...
  • Raimundo: I wouldn't care, if hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow smoke and make them buzz off.
  • Virgil: Buzz, buzz, buzz.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Virgil. The next morning, Raimundo arrived at the station to collect his coaches. The passengers were excited and keened to get on board. The platform was crowded and the porter was in a hurry.
  • Porter: Mind your backs.
  • George Carlin: He shouted. Then there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open. The station cleared like magic. Raimundo heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were to cold to be cross so they buzzed around the fireman hoping he'd mend their hive. But he didn't understand, nor did his driver. So the bees turned to Raimundo. His boiler was nice and warm.
  • Raimundo: Buzz off! Buzz off!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Raimundo. One bee burnt its foot.
  • Bee: Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: The bee thought Raimundo had burnt him on purpose. So it stung Raimundo right back on the nose.
  • (Doink!)
  • Raimundo: Eeeeeeeeeeee!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Raimundo. He had had enough so had his fireman and driver. They didn't notice till too late that they had left all their coaches behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees. First they spun on the turntable but to no avail. They tried washing them off but the bees clung harder to Raimundo's warm boiler. Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel. But still the bees wouldn't go away.
  • Driver: It's no good, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We'll just have to get back to the orchard and fetch another hive.
  • George Carlin: Raimundo's reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing. The Vicar was waiting anxiously for Raimundo. When he arrived, the buzz swarm straight into their new home.
  • Driver: Come on, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: What you need now is a good hosedown.
  • George Carlin: Later that evening, Raimundo was resting in the shed when the Vicar came to see him.
  • Vicar: Thank you for saving my bees.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Vicar: It's the pity it's not Christmas, then we can call you Raimundo the Red-Nosed boy.
  • George Carlin: Everyone laughed even Raimundo. But instead, they decided to call Raimundo "The Bees Knees", which means they thought he was more useful than ever.

Time For Trouble

  • George Carlin: The land of YTV has many visitors, and Steven had scheduled more students. Terry McGinnis had to work harder than ever before.
  • Terry: Come on.
  • George Carlin: He called to the coaches.
  • Terry: Come on, come on, come on. The passengers rely on me to be on time.
  • George Carlin: Whenever Terry finished one journey it was time for another to begin.
  • (The conductor blows his whistle)
  • Terry: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Terry: I like a long run to stretch my feet.
  • George Carlin: Even so, Steven decided that Terry needed a rest.
  • Steven: Raimundo shall do your work.
  • George Carlin: He said kindly. Raimundo was delighted. He like to show off his smart red paint and was determined to be as fast as Terry.
  • Raimundo: You know, little Jackie.
  • George Carlin: He boasted.
  • Raimundo: I'm an important character. Everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time, that's me.
  • Jackie: Sez you.
  • George Carlin: Replied Jackie. Just then, Steven arrived.
  • Steven: Your parts are worn, Jackie, so you must go to the works to be mended.
  • Jackie: Can I take Kitana, sir?
  • Steven: No. What would the passengers do without her?
  • George Carlin: Jackie saw Alex by the water tower.
  • Alex: Don't worry, Jackie. I'll take care of Kitana until you get back.
  • George Carlin: Soon Jackie was out on the main line. He clanked as he trundled along. He's a little character with small wheels. His tanks will not hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal.
  • Jackie: Good.
  • George Carlin: He tought.
  • Jackie: There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until Raimundo has passed.
  • George Carlin: Jackie was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Jackie before. Jackie's driver tried to explain but the new signalman wouldn't listen.
  • Signalman: We must clear the line for Raimundo with the express. You'll had to get more water at the next station.
  • George Carlin: Hurrying used a lot of water and his tanks were soon empty. Poor Jackie was out of steam and stranded on the main line.
  • Jackie's Fireman: We must warn Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman. Then he saw Alex and Kitana.
  • Jackie's Fireman: Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency.
  • George Carlin: Kitana hated leaving Jackie.
  • Alex: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said Alex.
  • Alex: You're taking the fireman to warn Raimundo. That's a big help.
  • George Carlin: Kitana felt much better. Raimundo was fuming when he heard the news.
  • Raimundo: I'm going to be late.
  • Signalman: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Said the signalman.
  • Signalman: I didn't understand about Jackie.
  • Raimundo's Driver: Now Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Raimundo's Driver: You had to push Jackie.
  • Raimundo: What, me?!
  • George Carlin: Snorted Raimundo.
  • Raimundo: Me?! Push Jackie and pull my train too?!
  • George Carlin: Grumbling dreadfully, Raimundo set off to find Jackie. He came up behind Jackie and gave him a bump.
  • Raimundo: Get on you!
  • George Carlin: Raimundo had to work very hard. When he reached the works station he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform.
  • Boy: Koo. The express is late and it's got two characters. I think Raimundo couldn't pull it on his own so Jackie had to help him.
  • Jackie: Never mind, Raimundo.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Jackie.
  • Jackie: They're only joking.
  • Raimundo: Huh!
  • George Carlin: Said Raimundo. Jackie just smiled.

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover

  • Children: (singing) Ash first saw Freakazoid plowing in a field one day and he said, "My oh my, you do look funny. Where are your wheels, are your wheels, are your wheels? How ever do you move along? You really do look funny." "Don't be so rude", said Freakazoid "I don't have wheels like you Because my caterpillar tracks are so much better. And I can go anywhere, anywhere, anywhere I don't need rails like you. One day I will prove it, show you how I do it Then you will understand... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover Sure enough, one winter's day When the snow lay deep and hard Ash got stuck, he was in trouble And who do you think came along, came along And rescued him that day The snow didn't matter to Freakazoid Now Ash understands... That you don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Things aren't necessarily Always what they appear to be Don't judge a book by its cover Don't make your mind up too soon Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book by its cover.

Don't judge a book by its cover Just remember the rule Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never Never judge a book.... By its cover!
