  1. Gone Fishing



  • George Carlin: One winter's night, when the cold wind blew, the characters found it hard to sleep.
  • Jackie: What we need.
  • George Carlin: Suggested Jackie.
  • Jackie: Is to listen to a story.
  • Alex: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Alex.
  • Alex: A mysterious story.
  • Virgil: But.
  • George Carlin: Added Virgil.
  • Virgil: It must have a happy ending.
  • Ash: Driver told me a story.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash, so everyone listened.
  • Ash: Once upon a time...
  • George Carlin: Began Ash. They were three little characters who lived their own little shed on their own little railway. Their names were Uncle, Froggo and Gug. Uncle was the oldest and was name after his grace, the Uncle of Sodor. He was proud of this and love to keep the little ones in order. Whenever they had anything that Uncle thought wrong, he would say...
  • Uncle: That would never suit his Grace.
  • George Carlin: Other characters came and went but Uncle outlast them at all. Froggo and Gug used to call him "Granuncle". They were fun of him, but they got very tired and hearing all about his Grace. Sometimes they were teasing and chant...
  • Froggo and Gug: Characters come and characters go, granduncle goes on forever!
  • Uncle: You impurtanded scallywags!
  • George Carlin: Uncle would say.
  • Uncle: Whatever are you engines coming to?
  • Gug: Never mind, Granduncle. We're only young once.
  • Uncle: Well you better mind, unless you wanna end up like Lemmy.
  • Froggo: Ooh! Uncle, whatever happened?
  • Uncle: Lemmy.
  • George Carlin: Said Uncle.
  • Uncle: Was a showoff. He rode roughly often came off the rails. I warned him to be careful, but he took no notice.
  • Lemmy: Listen, Uncie.
  • George Carlin: He snarled.
  • Lemmy: Who worries about their few spills?
  • Uncle: We do here, I said, but Lemmy just laughed.
  • Lemmy: (laughs)
  • Uncle: Until one day, manager said he was gonna make himself useful at last. Lemmy stopped laughing then.
  • Froggo: Why? What did he do?
  • Uncle: He turned him into a generator. He still out there behind our shed. He'll never move again.
  • George Carlin: After that, Froggo and Gug became really useful engines and all three were happy together for many years. Then hard times came. The mines and the hills closed and the railway was closed too. People came to buy the characters.
  • People: We'll take Froggo and Gug.
  • George Carlin: No one wanted Uncle. They thought him too old.
  • Froggo: Cheer up, Granduncle.
  • George Carlin: Called Froggo.
  • Froggo: We'll find you a nice railway and then you can come and keep us in order.
  • George Carlin: They tried to be brave and cheerful, but no one really thought their dreams would come true. Uncle's driver and fireman oiled and greased him one last time. They sheeted and snuggly and said goodbye, then they had to go away and find work. Uncle was alone.
  • Uncle: Oh well.
  • George Carlin: He sighed.
  • Uncle: I'll go to sleep. It'll help me pass the time.
  • George Carlin: Winter torrents washed soil from the hills. Trees and bushes grew all around. You wouldn't know the shed was there, let alone the little character sleep inside.
  • Alex: That's not a happy ending!
  • George Carlin: Cried Alex.
  • Ash: Ah.
  • George Carlin: Murmured Ash.
  • Ash: There will be one, but that'll have to wait until next time.

Sleeping Beauty

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful night on the land of YTV. The day's work was done and the characters puffed safely home.
  • Alex: Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Alex.
  • Ash: Will you tell us the end of the story?
  • Ash: You mean the one about Uncle Chan?
  • Shaggy: Exactly.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Raimundo: But please remind us of a story so far.
  • George Carlin: So Ash began and here's the rest of the story he told. Uncle was old and live with two young characters called Froggo and Gug. They teased Uncle and called him "Granuncle", but they were happy together. Then their line was closed down and the young characters went away. Uncle was left alone in the shed. He went to sleep and everything around him changed. But Uncle was never forgotten. Years went by until one day not long ago, visitors came to see Steven.
  • Visitors: We want to find Uncle.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Visitors: And make him happy again.
  • George Carlin: Maps lay everything.
  • Visitor: If we followed the old line shown here on the map.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Visitor: We'll travel north to the village and then to the mountains. And look. There's the sign for the old station. If Uncle's anywhere, he's there.
  • George Carlin: Everyone set off to the mountains far away. The days went by, the search grew harder, but the rescuers wouldn't give up.
  • Rescuers: Let's go this way.
  • George Carlin: They said. But there was still no sign of Uncle.
  • Rescuers: He's here somewhere.
  • George Carlin: They said. They scrambled over hills, struggled over ditches. At last their search ended, quite by accident.
  • (Crash!)
  • Rescuers: We found him! We found our sleeping beauty!
  • Uncle: Excuse me?
  • George Carlin: Enquired Uncle.
  • Uncle: Are you a vandal? Driver told me vandals break and smash things.
  • Rescuers: Bless you no.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the rescuers.
  • Rescuers: We dropped in because we couldn't find your door. Gug and Froggo will be pleased to see you.
  • Uncle: So they did remember!
  • George Carlin: Sighed Uncle happily. Then they all set off for Uncle's new home. Froggo and Gug are ready for a big welcome.
  • Froggo and Gug: He's here!
  • George Carlin: They whispered.
  • Froggo and Gug: Sh! Sh!
  • Uncle: You woke me up.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Uncle.
  • Uncle: In my young days, characters were...
  • Froggo: Seem in not heard, Granduncle, we know.
  • Gug: We're all be back to work tomorrow. We're glad you come back. We can keep you in order now.
  • Uncle: Keep me in order? Be off with you! Impuritie scallywags!
  • George Carlin: But Uncle's old eyes twinkled, and for the first time in years, he smiled as he dozed in the sun.
  • Ash: And that...
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: the whole story. Did you like it?
  • Alex: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Agreed the characters.
  • Raimundo: Especially the happy ending.
  • George Carlin: And soon, they were all asleep too.

A Bad Day For Gug

  • George Carlin: Rikochet and Buster work on the land that weaves round lakes and the Cartoon University. Their coaches are full of visitors. The characters are proud to run the line, come rain or shine. The characters will never let their passengers down, but they are old, and they tire more easily. their drivers understood this, and they spoke kindly to them.
  • Drivers: There's more than enough work for both of you on this railway. The manager is sending two more characters to help us run the line.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet and Buster were pleased with this news, and promised to give the new characters a big welcome. When Gug and Froggo arrived, they found that they had much to learn.
  • Gug: What a small shed!
  • George Carlin: Grunted Gug.
  • Gug: This won't do at all. We're much too good for this old shack.
  • Froggo: I think it's nice.
  • George Carlin: Said Froggo.
  • Gug: Humph.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gug.
  • Gug: What's that rubbish?
  • Froggo: Shhh.
  • George Carlin: Said Froggo.
  • Froggo: That's Rikochet. He's famous.
  • George Carlin: And then he whispered to Rikochet.
  • Froggo: I'm sorry, Rikochet. Gug is upset now, but he's quite nice, really.
  • George Carlin: Rikochet felt sorry for Froggo.
  • Fireman: Now, Gug.
  • George Carlin: Said the fireman.
  • Fireman: I will get you ready for work.
  • Gug: I'm tired! Let Froggo go. He'd love it!
  • Fireman: No, you're first.
  • George Carlin: Gug huffed to fetch his coaches. He didn't like the look of them at all.
  • Gug: What ever next? Those aren't coaches, they're cattle cars!
  • Coaches: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the coaches.
  • Coaches: What a horrid character!
  • Gug: It's not what I'm used to.
  • George Carlin: Clanked Gug. He rolled to the platform just as Terry arrived.
  • Gug: Hello, who are you?
  • Terry: I'm Terry, who are you?
  • Gug: I'm Gug. I've heard of you. You're an express character. So am I, but I'm used to new coaches, not these cattle cars. Do you have new coaches? I see you do. We must have a chat. Sorry, I can't stop. We must keep time you know.
  • George Carlin: Terry was speechless! Clouds of steam filled the air as Gug huffed and puffed along the line. He was still cross when they reached the top station. Gug was hoping for a rest, but his driver thought otherwise.
  • Driver: We'll leave the coaches now, and fetch some Beedrill from the quarry.
  • Gug: Beedrill!
  • George Carlin: Snorted Gug.
  • Gug: Beedrill! I won't, so there!
  • George Carlin: Gug was about to cause a great deal of trouble.
  • (Gug comes off the rails)
  • Gug: Told you!
  • George Carlin: Said Gug. By the time workmen came to rescue him, Gug was feeling rather silly. To make matters worse, there stood Steven. His message to Gug was brief and blunt.
  • Steven: I shall talk to you later!
  • George Carlin: Then he and the fireman left with Froggo. Gug felt sillier still.
  • Driver: Come on.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Let's get you back on the rails.
  • George Carlin: When Gug crawled home, he found Steven waiting for him.
  • Steven: You're a very naughty character! I hope I can trust you to behave when you next come out of this shed.
  • George Carlin: After hearing that, I'm sure Gug will. Aren't you?

Casey Helps Froggo

  • George Carlin: Everyday, where the little characters work, the crisp air is suddenly filled with a familiar noise. The lakes and mountains have many visitors, and Superman flies the sky, making sure that no one's in trouble.
  • Superman: All present and correct. Time to return to base.
  • George Carlin: Then Superman noticed something. A sturdy diesel was coming round the mountain. Superman flew lower for a closer inspection.
  • Superman: I'm Superman. Who are you?
  • Casey: I'm Casey.
  • George Carlin: Replied the diesel.
  • Superman: Don't recall seeing you before. What brings you this way?
  • Casey: Steven sent me to help the other characters.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Casey. This was no time to chat with a superhero.
  • Superman: Well done, cheers, and keep up the good work!
  • Casey: Cheeky chopper.
  • George Carlin: Muttered Casey.
  • Driver: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: Encouraged the driver.
  • Driver: We'll soon be at the top station.
  • George Carlin: Froggo and Gug were glad to see Casey. Even so, Gug wouldn't stop grumbling. The Beedrill didn't like Gug and wanted to play tricks on him.
  • Terry: No one understands our feelings.
  • George Carlin: Sympathized Terry.
  • Terry: Now if you were ill, you couldn't shunt Beedrill, could you?
  • Gug: Good idea.
  • George Carlin: Replied Gug.
  • Gug: I'll try it.
  • George Carlin: He did so next morning.
  • Gug: I don't feel well.
  • George Carlin: He groaned. There wasn't time for examine him, so some of his Beedrill were coupled behind Froggo's coaches. Casey promised to followed with the rest. Froggo didn't mind the extra work. He left his coaches at the station and trundled cheerfully on. Soon they reached the quarry where the Beedrill were needed. Empty Beedrill at the bottom of a slope are hitched to a cable. Loaded ones at the top are hitched to another. By their weight, loaded Beedrill were down the steep slope, pulling the empty ones up. Froggo doing waited at the bottom of a slope for the loaded Beedrill. He never bumped Beedrill unless they misbehave. But the loaded Beedrill couldn't see him properly. They thought he was Gug. They're chance for trickery had come.
  • Loaded Beedrill: Faster! Faster!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Empty Beedrill: No, no!
  • George Carlin: Wailed the empty Beedrill.
  • Empty Beedrill: It's Froggo!
  • George Carlin: But it was no use.
  • Loaded Beedrill: Hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Roared the Beedrill. Froggo shut his eyes.
  • (The Beedrill crash into Froggo, causing his hat to be broken in the process)
  • Froggo: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Froggo. Casey was working nearby and came to help clear out the mess.
  • Casey: Bust my buffers!
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Casey.
  • Casey: Never mind, Froggo. We'll get you out.
  • George Carlin: Froggo felt battered. His hat was cracked and his boiler dented.
  • Froggo: Thank you, Casey.
  • George Carlin: He sighed and limped slowly home.
  • Gug: I'm sorry about your accident.
  • George Carlin: Said Gug.
  • Gug: I always stand well back. Beedrill don't like me.
  • Froggo: Why didn't you warn me?
  • Gug: I didn't think.
  • Steven: You never do. You can start thinking now while you're doing Froggo's work as well as your own. That'll teach you to pretend you were ill.
  • George Carlin: Gug did start thinking about Terry. When the wreckage was cleared away, Casey set off along the line.
  • Superman: Splendid to see you again.
  • George Carlin: Whizzed Superman.
  • Superman: I've completing my evenings look about.
  • Casey: Well done, cheers, and keep up the good work!
  • George Carlin: And the little diesel purred back home.

Casey To The Rescue

  • George Carlin: In Springtime, Casey loves to visit a faraway place. It's filled with bluebells. The air smells sweet and Casey thinks there's no better place than be. One day, Ash was passing by just as Casey was having a drink.
  • Ash: Peep Peep! Good morning. Your driver looks a little worried. I wonder why.
  • Casey: I don't know.
  • George Carlin: Said Casey.
  • Casey: But I soon will. Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Casey.
  • Casey: But there's something wrong?
  • Casey's Driver: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied the driver.
  • Casey's Driver: They need another character to help us run the special line.
  • Casey: A bluebell character.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Casey.
  • Casey: Maybe I can find one.
  • George Carlin: Later, Casey saw Drix and Alex. Casey had an idea.
  • Casey: Can you help me find another character?
  • Drix: Where?
  • Casey: Where'd you found Richie?
  • Drix: You mean on the Other Railway?
  • Casey: Yes. I'm looking for a bluebell character.
  • George Carlin: And Casey explained everything.
  • Drix: I like to help. But these days it's only Diesels that go there.
  • George Carlin: Then Casey decided.
  • Casey: So that's were I go.
  • Drix: Take care.
  • George Carlin: Casey told the driver all about the plan and that night he came to the shed.
  • Casey's Driver: The manager says he'll make a home for a bluebell character if you find one.
  • Casey: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Casey.
  • Casey: We'll find one tomorrow.
  • George Carlin: It took them all the next day to travel to the Other Railway. Darkness fell and the cold wind blew.
  • Casey: Ooh. What's that?
  • George Carlin: But it was only the sounds of a lonely scrapyard. Diesel silent and still lined up guard.
  • Diesels: Who are you?
  • George Carlin: Casey plucked up courage.
  • Casey: I'm a shed and sidings inspection diesel. Have you any characters in the shed?
  • Diesels: No! None!
  • George Carlin: Casey rally began.
  • Casey: Then what about the sidings?
  • Diesels: One. We have one.
  • George Carlin: Casey grew braver still.
  • Casey: Then I'll just go and inspect.
  • George Carlin: A small character with a tall funnel stood sad and alone in a shadowy siding. His driver was huddled in the cab, keeping it company.
  • Casey: Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: Said Casey.
  • Casey: Do you like bluebells?
  • George Carlin: The character looks dawdled.
  • Yoshi: Yes, bluebells are beautiful.
  • Casey: Then you're soon going to see lots of them because I'm getting you out of here.
  • George Carlin: Everyone worked fast. It was difficult to set the fire, but soon it was glowing hot and Yoshi had a good head of steam. Casey's engineer agreed to be Yoshi's fireman. So off they set, past the bleak and bluey lines of diesels.
  • Diesels: Where is he going?
  • George Carlin: They hissed.
  • Casey: Just down the line.
  • George Carlin: Replied Casey, and they chuffered quickly away.
  • Casey: We've done it.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Casey.
  • Casey: We're over the board and back on the railway. Mission accomplished.
  • George Carlin: When Casey and the character arrived in the valley, a big welcome awaited him.
  • Manager: We shall mend you and give you your new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: Said the manager. His driver was delighted.
  • Yoshi's Driver: You lucky old dinosaur. You've been saved by the bluebell railway.
  • Yoshi: And my friend Casey. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Casey.
  • George Carlin: Now the little character is has happy as can be and helps the passengers and visit at bluebell time. His name is Yoshi but everyone calls him the dinosaur.

Ash and Yoshi

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum was feeling very happy. His blue coat shone in the sun, he was right on time, and all around his branch line the countryside seems prettier than ever before.
  • Ash: Peep peep! Good morning, Alex.
  • George Carlin: He whistled.
  • Ash: My branch is the pride of the line. Wouldn't you agree?
  • Alex: Uh, yes, Ash, of course, but, uh...
  • Ash: But what, Alex? Out with it.
  • Alex: Well there is another character with the famous branch line too.
  • Ash: Who? Where?
  • Alex: His name's Yoshi. He's far away, but Steven says he may visit us.
  • Ash: When?
  • Alex: Oh, someday.
  • George Carlin: And Alex hurried away. Meanwhile Yoshi puffed steadily along his line. It isn't very long, and that made him feel a little sad. Later he saw Casey, the little diesel had saved Yoshi from scrap.
  • Yoshi: Everyone's been so kind, but my railway was so sure, that I do miss a good long run.
  • Casey: I think you should tell driver too.
  • George Carlin: Replied Casey.
  • Casey: I'm sure he'll understand.
  • George Carlin: Yoshi soon discovered that indeed he did.
  • Driver: You know, Yoshi, I feel just the same way.
  • George Carlin: That evening, he had exciting news.
  • Driver: Guess what, Yoshi? Steven has invited to the other characters on his own railway. Manager agreed. It'll be really long run to get there.
  • Yoshi: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: Sighed Yoshi. They set off next morning. But now, all the other engines were talking about Yoshi.
  • Alex: He runs a famous branch line. Did you know that?
  • George Carlin: Said Alex. Ash was feeling a little jealous.
  • Ash: Huh! It may be famous but my branch is the first on the line. Everyone knows that too.
  • George Carlin: And he huffed away to fetch his coaches.
  • Alex: Look!
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Alex.
  • Alex: Why have they all come? There's no train yet.
  • George Carlin: But Alex was wrong. The signal dropped, and from far away a character's whistle.
  • Drix: Here he comes!
  • George Carlin: Yelled Drix. Yoshi puffed proudly through the junction.
  • Kevin: I hope you'll meet Ash too.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: You both have branch lines to be proud of.
  • George Carlin: Then Yoshi set off to help Virgil shunt coaches in the yards, and they worked happily together all afternoon. At last, Ash arrived.
  • Ash: Sorry, can't talk. It's time for my last branch line train. Mustn't be late.
  • George Carlin: He was hardly out of sight when the engines heard shouting at the station. Moments later came the alarm.
  • Man: Stop all train!
  • George Carlin: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: A special, is it? I see.
  • George Carlin: Ash was impatient.
  • Ash: Why are we waiting? My passengers have been delayed.
  • Driver: Sorry, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We're been shunted to allow another train to pass.
  • George Carlin: Soon they heard an unfamiliar puffing sound. There was Yoshi with his headlamp swang and whistle blowing. He gathered speed and disappeared.
  • Ash: Well bust my boiler!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash Ketchum. Next morning, he was still fuming.
  • Ash: Shunted! And on my own branch too! It's a disgrace!
  • Yoshi: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Yoshi.
  • Yoshi: I was a special.
  • Ash: Why?
  • Yoshi: An important passenger arrived just as you left. He ordered a special train and Virgil let me take it. We had a splendid run, but uh...
  • Ash: But...
  • George Carlin: Finished Ash.
  • Ash: It can make a character nervous not to know the line.
  • Yoshi: Excatly.
  • George Carlin: Said Yoshi.
  • Yoshi: You're such an expert.
  • George Carlin: Ash felt much better. He couldn't be cross anymore and began telling Yoshi all about his branch line.

Gone Fishing

  • Children: (singing) Sometimes it's nice to take some time out. Do what you really want to do. Just to relax and let the world fly by you. Forget your worry, no need to hurry. Just leave a sign to say... Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? You drop your line down to the river, Waiting to see what you can find. Whatever life has to offer you. You know you'll take it, stand up and face it, Smiling along the way. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? There's nothing better on a sunny day, When all your work is done. Throw down your line, settle down. Surprise, surprise, look what you've found. Gone fishing, gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way, Gone fishing. Gone fishing, Gone fishing. It's a sunny old day and you're on your way. Why don't we all go fishing? It's a sunny old day and you're on your way... Gone fishing!
