Script

Double Trouble

  • George Carlin: It was a beautiful morning on the land of Cartoons. Ash Ketchum's smart clothes sparkled in the sunshine, as he walked happily along his path with Fauna and Lana. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Dexter: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whistled Dexter.
  • Dexter: You look splendid.
  • Ash: Yes indeed.
  • George Carlin: Boasted Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only proper color for a trainer.
  • Tai: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • George Carlin: Said Tai.
  • Dexter: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • George Carlin: Added Dexter.
  • Ash: Well, well, anyway.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Ash.
  • Ash: Blue is the only color for a really useful trainer. Anyone knows that.
  • George Carlin: Dexter said no more. He just grinned at Tai. Later, Ash was resting when Dexter arrived. A large hopper was loading his Beedrill full of coal. Ash was still being cheeky.
  • Ash: Careful.
  • George Carlin: He warned.
  • Ash: Watch out with those silly Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: Muttered the Beedrill.
  • Ash: And by the way.
  • George Carlin: Went on Ash.
  • Ash: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • George Carlin: The last load poured down.
  • Ash: Help, help!
  • George Carlin: Cried Ash.
  • Ash: Get me out!
  • George Carlin: Dexter was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Ash's smart clothes was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Dexter: Ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Dexter.
  • Dexter: You don't look really useful now, Ash. You look really disgraceful.
  • Ash: I'm not disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Choked Ash.
  • Ash: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • George Carlin: It took so long to clean Ash that he wasn't it time for his next train. Tai had to take Mitchie and Amethyst.
  • Mitchie: Poor Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Mitchie to Amethyst. They were most upset. Ash was grumpy in the shed that night. Tai thought it made a great joke, but Dexter was cross with Ash for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Dexter: Fancy a really useful blue trainer like Ash becoming a disgrace to Lexi Bunny's railway.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Ash was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Dexter bring his Beedrill from the junction. The Beedrill were heavy and Dexter was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • George Carlin: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Dexter found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Dexter: Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Dexter.
  • Dexter: Help!
  • (Dexter falls into the deep coal)
  • George Carlin: The buffers were broken and Dexter was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Ash to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Ash: Now Dexter has learned his lesson too.
  • George Carlin: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two characters made up their quarrel.
  • Dexter: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Dexter.
  • Dexter: You do know that, don't you?
  • Ash: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: And I'm sorry I teased you. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.

A Miltank On The Line

  • George Carlin: Pooh Bear was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty Beedrill to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Pooh was heading for trouble.
  • Pooh: Come on! Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: Screamed the Beedrill. Pooh puffed and clanked, the Beedrill rattled and screamed. Some Miltank were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Peter clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some Beedrill were left behind.
  • (Miltank mooing)
  • George Carlin: Pooh felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to Beedrill.
  • Pooh: Bother those Beedrill!
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Pooh: Why can't they come quietly?
  • George Carlin: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Prohyas and Shaggy heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Prohyas: Fancy allowing Beedrill to break your train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • George Carlin: Old Tai was cross.
  • Tai: You couldn't help it, Pooh Bear. They've never met Miltank. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • George Carlin: Some days later, Prohyas rushed through Peter's Station.
  • Prohyas: Boop boop! Mind the Miltank! Hurry, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Prohyas.
  • Pets: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled his pets. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Scott that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Prohyas's Driver: Whoa, Prohyas!
  • George Carlin: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Prohyas: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: It's only a Miltank! Shooh! Shooh!
  • George Carlin: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the Miltank wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Shaggy arrived.
  • Shaggy: What's this? A Miltank? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Miltank: Mooooh!
  • George Carlin: Said the Miltank. Shaggy backed away nervously.
  • Shaggy: I don't want to hurt her.
  • George Carlin: At the next station, Shaggy's Conductor told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • George Carlin: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, looking for her mother. Dexter will take her along.
  • George Carlin: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • Shaggy: Not a word.
  • Prohyas: Keep it secret.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Prohyas and Shaggy to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Pooh: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Pooh.
  • Pooh: Two big characters afraid of a Miltank.
  • Prohyas: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: We didn't want the poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what mean, my dear Pooh.
  • Pooh: Yes, Prohyas.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh. Prohyas felt somehow that Pooh "saw" only too well.

Sonic's Chase

  • George Carlin: One morning, Pooh Bear was waiting to pick up passengers from Ash Ketchum.
  • Pooh: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Ash? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • George Carlin: Sang the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind about Johnny.
  • George Carlin: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Ash. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • George Carlin: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Sonic the Hedgehog in the tarrying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • George Carlin: He clambered down.
  • Sonic: Stop, stop! I've got Ash's passengers!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Sonic, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Pooh was gone.
  • Sonic: Bother.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: Bother Ash's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Sonic: I'll catch Pooh Bear or bust.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Sonic: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • George Carlin: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Sonic: I'll never be the same hedgehog again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • George Carlin: Cheered Sonic as he reached the top.
  • Sonic: Oh, no! Pooh's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • George Carlin: Sonic toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Sonic!
  • George Carlin: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • George Carlin: Sonic skitted into the yard.
  • Sonic: Wait, wait!
  • George Carlin: Cried Sonic. He was just in time to see Pooh puffed away.
  • Sonic: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Said Sonic.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch 'em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Pooh. I'll just make sure.
  • George Carlin: He spoke to the stationmaster. Sonic and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • George Carlin: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers, as Sonic chased after Pooh once more.
  • Pets: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the pets as Pooh snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Pooh: Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Pooh.
  • Pooh: Get in quickly please.
  • George Carlin: The conductor blew the whistle and Pooh's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Sonic. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the conductor and driver what had happened.
  • Pooh: I'm sorry about the chase, Sonic.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Sonic: My fault.
  • George Carlin: Replied Sonic.
  • Sonic: Late at junction. You didn't know about Ash's passengers.
  • Pooh: Peep peep! Goodbye, Sonic! We're off!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Pooh.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Sonic!
  • George Carlin: Called the passengers. Sonic raced back to tell Ash that all was well.
  • Ash: Thank you, Sonic, for keeping your promise.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're a very good friend indeed.

Saved From Scrap

  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny works her characters hard, but they are very proud when she calls them really useful.
  • Pooh: I'm going to the scrapyard today.
  • George Carlin: Pooh called to Ash.
  • Ash: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash cheekily. Ash was only teased him. The scrapyard was full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, loaded into Beedrill and Pooh pulls them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Pooh in the yard. It was a snail.
  • Pooh: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Turbo: I'm Turbo. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Pooh: What a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Turbo: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new, but my owner says I'm old fashioned.
  • George Carlin: Pooh snorted.
  • Pooh: People say I'm old fashioned, but I don't care. Lexi Bunny says I'm a useful character. What work did you do?
  • Turbo: My owner will send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • George Carlin: Turbo shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Turbo: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • George Carlin: Pooh set off for the station.
  • Pooh: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Turbo, I must.
  • George Carlin: He thought of all his friends who liked characters. But strangely none of them would have room for a snail at home.
  • Pooh: It's a shame, it's a shame.
  • George Carlin: He hissed. Then...
  • Pooh: Peep! Peep! Why didn't I think of him before.
  • George Carlin: There on the platform was the very person.
  • Charles: Hello, Pooh. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • George Carlin: He asked the driver.
  • Driver: There's a snail in the scrapyard, professor. He'll be broken up next week. Bluster Kong says he never drove a better character.
  • Pooh: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Charles: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Replied the professor. Bluster Kong came on Saturday.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's coming to see you, Turbo. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Turbo: Do you think he will?
  • George Carlin: Asked Turbo.
  • Bluster Kong: He will when I lit your fire and clean you up.
  • George Carlin: The professor and his two boys arrived that evening. Turbo hadn't felt so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Charles: Show your paces, Turbo.
  • George Carlin: Said the professor. Later he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Charles: I've got him cheap, Bluster, cheap.
  • Bluster Kong: Did ye hear that, Turbo?
  • George Carlin: Cried Bluster.
  • Bluster Kong: The reverend's saved you and you'll live at the vicarage now.
  • Turbo: Peep! Peep!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Turbo. Now Turbo's home was in the Vicarage Orchard, and he sees Pooh every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Turbo likes his work but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers round the orchard giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Turbo: I like children.
  • George Carlin: He whispers happily.

Old Iron

  • George Carlin: One day, Al had to wait at the station till Pooh Bear and his flowers came in. This made him cross.
  • Al: Late again!
  • George Carlin: Pooh laughed and Al fumed again. After Al had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • Al: Pooh Bear is impossible!
  • George Carlin: He grumbled to the others.
  • Al: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • George Carlin: Ash and Dexter were indigent.
  • Dexter: Old iron?! Slow?!
  • Ash: Why, Pooh Bear could beat you in a race any day!
  • Al: Really!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: I should like to see him do it.
  • ​George Carlin: Next morning, Al's driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled Al ready for shunting. Al was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Al 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 Al's footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when Leo 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 Pooh arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Pooh: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Pooh. Al was laughing.
  • Al: 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.
  • Al: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Pooh: We're coming, we're coming!
  • George Carlin: Called Pooh. Pooh was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with Al.
  • Pooh's Driver: Steady, Pooh.
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Pooh's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over Al's hand. The characters swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • George Carlin: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Pooh's driver checked the characters' speed, and Al's fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Pooh: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Pooh.
  • Al: I'm sorry.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Al.
  • Al: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Pooh.
  • Pooh: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Pooh. The characters arrived at the station side by side. Lexi Bunny was waiting.
  • Lexi: A fine piece of work.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Lexi: Al, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Pooh. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Pooh: Oh, thank you, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: It'll be lovely not to clank.

A New Friend For Ash

  • George Carlin: Turbo the racing snail enjoyed living in the Vicarage Orchard. Pooh Bear came to see him every day, but sometimes, Turbo didn't have enough work to do.
  • Turbo: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • George Carlin: He sighed one day.
  • Turbo: And I do like company. Especially, children's company.
  • Pooh: Cheer up.
  • George Carlin: Smiled Pooh.
  • Pooh: Lexi Bunny has worked for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Ash today.
  • Turbo: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Exclaimed Turbo happily.
  • Turbo: The harbor, the seaside, children. That would be lovely.
  • George Carlin: Ash was on his way to the harbour with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbour wharf firm and safe.
  • Pooh: Hello, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: This is Turbo a friend of mine. He's a racing snail.
  • George Carlin: Ash eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Ash: A what snail?
  • Turbo: A racing snail.
  • George Carlin: Explained Turbo.
  • Turbo: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbour, please? Lexi Bunny has a job for me.
  • Ash: Yes, of course.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Turbo's car to Ash's train and soon they were ready to start their journey.
  • Turbo: I'm glad Lexi Bunny needs me.
  • George Carlin: Called Turbo.
  • Turbo: I don't have enough to do sometime you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards even at harbours.
  • Ash: But you don't run on rails.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash.
  • Turbo: I'm a racing snail. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • George Carlin: Replied Turbo.
  • Turbo: You wait and see.
  • George Carlin: When they reached the harbour, they found everything in confusion. Beedrill had been derailed, blocking the line and stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get this pilings past.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash's Driver.
  • Driver: They are essential. Turbo, we need you to drag them round this mess.
  • Turbo: Just the sort of job I like.
  • George Carlin: Replied Turbo.
  • Turbo: Now you'll see, Ash. I'll soon show you what snails can do.
  • George Carlin: Turbo was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains and towed them into position.
  • Turbo: Who needs rails?
  • George Carlin: He muttered cheerfully to himself. Later, Ash brought Mitchie and Amethyst to visit him. Ash was most impressed.
  • Ash: Now I understand how useful a racing snail can be.
  • George Carlin: The coaches were full of children. Turbo gave them rides along the harbour. He liked this best of all.
  • Mitchie: He's very kind.
  • George Carlin: Said Mitchie.
  • Amethyst: He reminds me of Ash.
  • George Carlin: Added Amethyst. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Turbo to go. Ash pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Turbo's eye. Ash pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Turbo happy.
  • Ash: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • George Carlin: He promised.
  • Ash: Jon Arbuckle will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may meet you again at the harbour someday.
  • Turbo: That would be wonderful.
  • George Carlin: Said Turbo. That evening, Turbo stood remembering his new friend, Ash, the harbour and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

Dexter and The Traffic Light

  • George Carlin: Dexter works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Dexter: Peep peep! Hurry up, Prohyas, the train's ready.
  • George Carlin: Prohays thought he was late.
  • Dexter: Ha, ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Laughed Dexter and showed him a train of dirty Beedrill. Prohyas thought how he can pay Dexter back for teasing him. Next it was Al's turn.
  • Dexter: Stay in the shed today, Al. Lexi Bunny will come and see you.
  • Al: Ah!
  • George Carlin: Thought Al.
  • Al: Lexi Bunny knows I'm a fine boy. She wants me to pull the special train.
  • George Carlin: Al's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Al's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Al. You can't stay here all day.
  • Al: Lexi Bunny told me to stay here. She sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: She did not. How could she? She's away for a week.
  • Al: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: Oh. Where's Dexter?
  • George Carlin: Dexter had wisely disappeared. When Lexi Bunny came back, she was cross with Al and Dexter for causing so much trouble. But the very next day, Dexter was still being cheeky.
  • Dexter: I say, you characters, I'm to take some Beedrill to Ash's junction. Lexi Bunny chose me specially. He must know I'm a really useful kid.
  • Al: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Al. Prohyas looked across to Al. They were going to play a trick on Dexter.
  • Prohyas: Al and I were just speaking about traffic lights at the junction. We can't be too careful about traffic lights, but then I needn't say that to a really useful kid like you, Dexter.
  • George Carlin: Dexter felt flattered.
  • Al: We've had spoken about backing traffic lights.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Al: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Dexter: No thank you, Al.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Dexter: I know all about signals.
  • George Carlin: Dexter was a little worried.
  • Dexter: I wonder what backing traffic lights are.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Dexter: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • George Carlin: He puffed crossly to his Beedrill and felt better. He came to a traffic light.
  • Dexter: Bother, it's a danger.
  • George Carlin: The traffic light moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Dexter had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Dexter: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing traffic lights.
  • Driver: Come on, Dexter.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Dexter: But it's a backing traffic light.
  • George Carlin: Dexter protested and told him about Prohyas and Al. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Dexter: Oh, dear.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Dexter: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • George Carlin: He was too late. Prohyas saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Dexter thought they were being very silly.

Kevin Takes Charge

  • Dexter: Do you know what?
  • George Carlin: Asked Dexter.
  • Prohyas: What?
  • George Carlin: Grunted Prohyas.
  • Dexter: Do you know what?
  • Prohyas: Silly!
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Dexter: Lexi Bunny says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. She's getting a bigger character to help me.
  • Al: Rubbish!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: Any character could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • George Carlin: Dexter went off to get some pets.
  • Dexter: That stupid old traffic light.
  • George Carlin: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a traffic light and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Dexter: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little kid and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • George Carlin: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some pets to the station.
  • Lexi: Hello, Dexter.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: You look tired.
  • Dexter: Yes ma'am, I am ma'am. I don't know if I'm standing on my head or on my feet.
  • Lexi: You look the right way up to me.
  • George Carlin: Laughed Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: Cheer up. The new character is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Ash and Tai will help too.
  • Dexter: Oh yes, ma'am. Thank you, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: The new character arrived.
  • Lexi: What's your name?
  • George Carlin: Asked Lexi Bunny.
  • Kevin: Game Master, ma'am, but I'm usually called Kevin. They say I play games. I don't really, sir, but I like Kevin better than Game Master.
  • Lexi: Good. Kevin it shall be. Here, Dexter, show Kevin around.
  • George Carlin: The two characters went off together. Soon they were very busy. Al, Prohyas and Shaggy watched Kevin quietly doing his work.
  • Shaggy: He seems a simple sort of character.
  • Al: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Shaggy, Prohyas and Al: (quacking noises) Wheesh!
  • George Carlin: Smoke billowed everywhere. Dexter was cross, but Kevin took no notice.
  • Kevin: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Dexter?
  • Dexter: Yes they do.
  • George Carlin: Answered Dexter.
  • Kevin: Right.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • George Carlin: He whispered something.
  • Kevin: We'll do it later.
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, she heard an extraordinary noise.
  • Shaggy, Prohyas and Al: Wheesh! (snorting noises)
  • Lexi: Bother!
  • George Carlin: She said and hurried to the yard. Kevin and Dexter calmly sat on the switches outside the shed, refusing to let the characters in. Prohyas, Al and Shaggy were furious.
  • Lexi: Stop that noise!
  • George Carlin: Bellowed Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: They won't let us in!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Prohyas.
  • Lexi: Kevin, explain this behavior.
  • Kevin: Beg pardon ma'am, but I'm a game master. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Dexter and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, characters that we only take orders from you.
  • (Al and Prohyas blew their whistles loudly)
  • Lexi: Quiet!
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: Dexter and Kevin, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas, Shaggy and Al sniggered.
  • Lexi: As for you.
  • George Carlin: Thundered Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Kevin is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • George Carlin: After Dexter went away, Kevin was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!

Dexter Proves A Point

  • George Carlin: Dexter worked hard at the new harbor. The workmen needed stone for their building. Tai helped, but sometimes the loads of stone were too heavy and Dexter had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes he'd see Ash.
  • Ash: Well done, Dexter. Lexi Bunny is very pleased with us.
  • George Carllin: An airfield was closed by. Dexter heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a Duck Pilot.
  • Dexter: Silly thing!
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Dexter: Why can't and go and buzz somewhere else?
  • George Carlin: One day, Dexter stopped at the airfield.
  • Dexter: Hello.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Dexter: Who are you?
  • Launchpad: I'm Launchpad. Who are you?
  • Dexter: I'm Dexter. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Launchpad: They're nice arms.
  • George Carlin: Said Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Dexter: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Launchpad: I think railways are slow.
  • George Carlin: Said Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • George Carlin: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Dexter found Tai at the quarry.
  • Dexter: I say, Tai, that Launchpad, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says I'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • George Carlin: He collected his Beedrill and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familiar buzzing.
  • Driver: Dexter.
  • George Carlin: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Launchpad. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Dexter: Yes, let's.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter. Dexter pounded along, the Beedrill screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. There was Launchpad. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Dexter!
  • George Carlin: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • George Carlin: Dexter had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Dexter: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • George Carlin: He panted to the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • George Carlin: They grumbled. It was no use. Dexter was bucketing along with flying wheels and Launchpad was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Kevin!
  • George Carlin: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • George Carlin: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Dexter: Peep peep peep! Brakes, conductor, please?
  • George Carlin: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and halted on the wharf.
  • Dexter: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Groaned Dexter.
  • Dexter: I'm sure we've lost.
  • George Carlin: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • George Carlin: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Launchpad's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • George Carlin: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Dexter. (singing) Said Launchpad McQuack to our Dexter you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Dexter and his Beedrill did the trip in record time, and we beat the Duck Pilot on our old branch line.
  • George Carlin: Dexter loved it.
  • Dexter: Oh, thank you!
  • George Carlin: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy kid.

The Runaway

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum was ill. Workmen had tried to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Lexi: Pooh must send you to the works.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny. Ash felt very miserable. Then, Lexi Bunny spoke to Kevin.
  • Lexi: I want you to help Dexter and Tai while Ash is away.
  • George Carlin: Kevin was delighted. He already knew Dexter and soon made friends with Tai and Sonic. Earthworm Jim gave him a big welcome too.
  • Jim: Take care of Ash's ladies.
  • George Carlin: He advised.
  • Jim: He's sure to miss them while he's away.
  • George Carlin: Kevin was very gentle with the ladies. Mitchie and Amethyst were impressed.
  • Mitchie: Such nice manners.
  • George Carlin: They told each other.
  • Amethyst: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • George Carlin: When Ash came back, Mitchie and Amethyst told him how well Kevin had managed. Ash was so happy to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Ash's handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Ash found this most embarrassing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Ash's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Shaggy's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Ash's handbrake. Ash simmered happily.
  • Ash: Not long now.
  • George Carlin: He thought. As he saw Shaggy slowly approaching. But Ash's brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his wheels begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The Conductor, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Mitchie and Amethyst: Stop! Stop!
  • George Carlin: Shrieked Mitchie and Amethyst. But Ash, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • George Carlin: There ready for action was Launchpad McQuack. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Ash was tiring.
  • Ash: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • George Carlin: He panted wearily. As they neared the next station Ash saw Launchpad land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • George Carlin: At last Ash stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: Think nothing of it. Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Ash.
  • George Carlin: Remarked the inspector.
  • Inspector: We must never let this happen again.
  • George Carlin: Wearily, Ash agreed with him.

Dexter Takes The Plunge

  • George Carlin: One day, Shaggy wanted to rest, but Dexter was talking to some chipmunks. He was telling them about the time he had braved bad weather to help Ash.
  • Dexter: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Chip: Oh, Dexter, you are brave.
  • Dexter: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a character with determination.
  • Dale: Tell us more, Dexter.
  • Shaggy: What are you characters doing here?
  • George Carlin: Hissed Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: This shed is for Lexi Bunny's characters. Go away. Silly things.
  • George Carlin: Shaggy snorted.
  • Dexter: They're not silly.
  • George Carlin: Dexter had been enjoying himself.
  • Shaggy: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to a character with determination. Huh.
  • Dexter: Anyway.
  • George Carlin: Said cheeky Dexter.
  • Dexter: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • George Carlin: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Dexter: Once a character taking some flowers was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Shaggy: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Shaggy. Ash was looking at the board on the quay.
  • Ash: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Ash: That's orders.
  • Dexter: Why?
  • Ash: Danger means falling down something.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Dexter: I can't see a mine.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter. He didn't know that the foundations of the quay had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Dexter: Stupid board.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter. He made a plan. One day, he whispered to the Beedrill.
  • Dexter: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill had never asked to bump a character before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Dexter: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Dexter.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill. Dexter thought they were helping.
  • Dexter: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the Beedrill will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • George Carlin: Every wise character knows that you cannot trust Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Go on, go on!
  • George Carlin: They yelled, and bumped Dexter's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Dexter: Ow!
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter, sliding pass the board. Kevin was frantic.
  • Dexter: That's enough!
  • (Dexter falls into the water)
  • George Carlin: Dexter was sunk.
  • Lexi: You are a very disobedient kid.
  • George Carlin: Dexter knew that voice.
  • Dexter: Please ma'am, get me out ma'am, I'm truly sorry ma'am.
  • Lexi: No Dexter, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to take care of yourself.
  • Dexter: Yes, sir.
  • George Carlin: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Dexter. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Shaggy's freight train.
  • Shaggy: Well, well, well!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Did you like the water?
  • Dexter: No.
  • Shaggy: I am surprised. You need more determination, Dexter. Water's nothing to a character with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • George Carlin: Dexter is quite determined that they'll won't be a next time.

Pop Goes The Koopa

  • George Carlin: Kevin is very proud of being game master. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard, too, and makes everything go like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The Beedrill and Arcanine behaved well. The passengers even stopped grumbling. But the characters didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Kevin: There are two ways of doing things.
  • George Carlin: Kevin told them.
  • Kevin: The game master way, or the wrong way. I'm a game master and...
  • Shaggy, Prohyas and Al: Don't we know it!
  • George Carlin: They groaned. The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Lexi Bunny introduce him.
  • Lexi: Here is Bowser. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Kevin.
  • Bowser: Good morning.
  • George Carlin: Purred Bowser in an oily voice.
  • Bowser: Please to meet you, Kevin. Is that Al and Prohyas and Shaggy and Jason too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • George Carlin: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • George Carlin: They murmured.
  • Characters: We're pleased to have in our yard.
  • George Carlin: Kevin had his doubts.
  • Kevin: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He said. Bowser purred after him.
  • Bowser: Your worthy Bun...
  • Kevin: Lexi Bunny to you.
  • George Carlin: Ordered Kevin. Bowser looked hurt.
  • Bowser: Your worthy Lexi Bunny thinks I need to learn. She is mistaken. We koopas don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Kevin: Oh!
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my Beedrill while I fetch Prohyas's Arcanine.
  • George Carlin: Bowser delighted to show off, purred away. When Kevin returned, Bowser was trying to take some Beedrill from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Bowser found them hard to move. Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Beedrill: Oh! Oh!
  • George Carlin: The Beedrill groaned.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Kevin watched with interest. Bowser lost patience.
  • Bowser: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: He roared, and gave a great heave. The Beedrill jerked forward.
  • Beedrill: Ohhh!
  • George Carlin: They screamed.
  • Beedrill: We can't! We won't!
  • George Carlin: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Bowser: Grrrr!
  • Kevin: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Kevin. Bowser recovered and try to push the Beedrill back, but they wouldn't move. Kevin ran quietly around to collect the other Beedrill.
  • Kevin: Thank you for arranging these, Bowser. I must go now.
  • Bowser: Don't you want this lot?
  • Kevin: No thank you.
  • George Carlin: Bowser gulped.
  • Bowser: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Kevin: You never asked me. Besides.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Bowser: Grrrr!
  • George Carlin: Bowser had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the Beedrill were laughing and singing at him.
  • Beedrill: Beedrill are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Koopa, in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong Beedrill out, Pop goes the Koopa!
  • Bowser: Grrr!
  • George Carlin: Growled Bowser, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Bowser's Devious Deed

  • George Carlin: King Bowser Koopa was sulking. The Beedrill would not stop singing rudely at him. Kevin was horrified.
  • Kevin: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Kevin: I'm sorry our Beedrill were rude to you, Bowser.
  • George Carlin: Bowser was still furious.
  • Bowser: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Shaggy: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Kevin would never do that. We characters have our differences, but we never talked about them to the Beedrill. That would be dis...dis...
  • Prohyas: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Shaggy. Bowser hated Kevin. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Kevin. Next day, he spoke to the Beedrill.
  • Bowser: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Kevin told me one about Prohyas. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Prohyas I told you.
  • George Carlin: And he sniggered away.
  • Beedrill: Ha, ha, ha!
  • George Carlin: Guffawed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: Prohyas will be cross with Kevin when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Kevin for bumping us.
  • George Carlin: They laughed rudely at the characters as they went by. Soon Prohyas, Shaggy and Al found out why.
  • Prohyas: Disgraceful.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Al: Disgusting.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Shaggy: Despicable.
  • George Carlin: Finished Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: We cannot allow it.
  • George Carlin: They consulted together.
  • Shaggy: Yes.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Shaggy: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • Georeg Carlin: Kevin was tired out. The Beedrill had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: Hooosh!
  • Al: Keep out!
  • Kevin: Stop fooling.
  • George Carlin: Said Kevin.
  • Kevin: I'm tired.
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: So are we.
  • George Carlin: Hissed the characters.
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: We're tired of you. We like Bowser. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the Beedrill.
  • Kevin: I don't!
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: You do!
  • Kevin: I don't!
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: You do!
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny came to stop the noise.
  • Prohyas: Kevin called me a galloping sausage!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Prohyas.
  • Al: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Al.
  • Shaggy: I'm old square wheels!
  • George Carlin: Fumed Shaggy.
  • Lexi: Well, Kevin?
  • George Carlin: Kevin considered.
  • Kevin: I only wish ma'am.
  • George Carlin: He said gravely.
  • Kevin: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Lexi: (clearing throat)
  • Prohyas, Al and Shaggy: He made Beedrill laugh at us.
  • George Carlin: Accused the characters. Lexi Bunny recovered. She been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Lexi: Did you, Kevin?
  • Kevin: Certainly not, ma'am. No character will be as mean as that.
  • George Carlin: Bowser lurked up.
  • Lexi: Now Bowser, you heard what Kevin said.
  • Bowser: I can't understand it, ma'am, to think that Kevin of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, ma'am, but know nothing.
  • Lexi: I see.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny. Bowser squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Lexi: I'm sorry, Kevin, but you must go to Pooh's station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Kevin: As you wish, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Kevin trundled sadly away, while Bowser smirked with triumph.

A Close Shave For Kevin

  • George Carlin: Kevin Keene the Game Master walked sadly to Pooh Bear's station.
  • Kevin: It's not fair.
  • George Carlin: He complained.
  • Kevin: Bowser has been telling lies about me and made Lexi Bunny and all the characters think I'm horrid.
  • George Carlin: Pooh smiled.
  • Pooh: I know you weren't, and so does Lexi Bunny. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these Beedrill?
  • George Carlin: Kevin felt happier with Pooh, and set to work at once. The Beedrill were silly, heavy and noisy. The two characters have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Kevin: Goodbye!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Kevin, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Kevin love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Kevin: It was the conductor's warning whistle.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • George Carlin: Laughed the Beedrill.
  • Beedrill: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • George Carlin: They yelled.
  • Driver: Hurry, Kevin, hurry!
  • George Carlin: Said the driver. They raced through Pooh's station, but the Beedrill were catching up.
  • Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • George Carlin: The driver was gaining control.
  • Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • George Carlin: Al was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Driver: It's up to you now, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Cried the driver. Kevin put every ounce of wait and steam against the Beedrill.
  • Kevin It's too late!
  • George Carlin: Kevin groaned. He veered into a siding where Wario had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The silly Beedrill were knocked their conductor off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the Beedrill didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Kevin: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • George Carlin: Gasped Kevin.
  • Kevin: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Wario: No I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said Wario.
  • Wario: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • George Carlin: And he lathered Kevin's face all other. Poor Kevinl! Ash was helping to pull the Beedrill away when Lexi Bunny arrived.
  • Wario: I do not like characters popping through my walls.
  • George Carlin: Fumed Wario.
  • Lexi: I appreciate your feelings.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: But you must know that this character and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close shave.
  • Wario: Oh.
  • George Carlin: Said Wario.
  • Wario: Oh! Excuse me.
  • George Carlin: He filled the basin of water to wash Kevin's face.
  • Wario: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave character.
  • Kevin: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Lexi: You were very brave indeed.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: I'm proud of you.
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Kevin.
  • Lexi: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Kevin: Home, ma'am? Do you mean the yard?
  • Lexi: Of course.
  • Kevin: But sir, they don't like me. They like Bowser.
  • Lexi: Not now. I never believed Bowser, so I sent him packing. The characters were sorry and want you back.
  • George Carlin: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Kevin Keene.

Better Late Than Never

  • George Carlin: The characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strengthany. Lexi Bunny did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The characters have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Ash would be ready to collect his passengers. Ash grew crosser and crosser.
  • Ash: Time's time.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Ash: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Shaggy and Al dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Shaggy: Don't blame me.
  • George Carlin: Snorted Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Ash: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • George Carlin: Retorted Ash. He hurried away before Shaggy could answer. Sonic was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Ash. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the hedgehog till their train, they were kept waiting till Ash arrived. Soon Sonic grew cross with Ash.
  • Sonic: Late again!
  • George Carlin: He remarked as Ash panted wearily in.
  • Sonic: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Ash. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • George Carlin: Ash let off steam loudly.
  • Ash: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed fiercely.
  • Ash: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Lexi Bunny's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • George Carlin: One day, Al was later than ever at the junction.
  • Al: I'm sorry, Ash.
  • George Carlin: He puffed.
  • Al: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Ash: It's lucky for you I'm a guarantee connection.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Ash. Before Al could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Ash: Come along, come along!
  • George Carllin: He panted to the ladies. Mitchie and Amethyst did their best but Ash still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Ash saw Sonic ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Ash: What's the matter?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Ash: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Sonic: I feel dreadful.
  • George Carlin: Moaned Sonic.
  • Sonic: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home otherwise.
  • Ash: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Agreed Ash. He now felt sorry for Sonic, and promised to get help at the next station. Ash set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Sonic's passengers, travelling in Mitchie and Amethyst all reached home safely. When Sonic was better he came to thank Ash.
  • Sonic: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Ash: That's all right.
  • George Carlin: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • George Carlin: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.

Mordecai and Rigby

  • George Carlin: Mordecai and Rigby are animals, and have arrived from the city to help Lexi Bunny, but only one character had been expected. The animals meant well, but did cause confusion. Lexi Bunny had given them numbers, Mordecai 9 and Rigby 10, but he was still planning to send one character home. There was Elmer Fudd in the yard that had taken a dislike to Rigby. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Rigby began to worry. Mordecai, his friend, was angry.
  • Mordecai: You're a foolish nuisance!
  • George Carlin: Said Mordecai.
  • Mordecai: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Elmer: You can't!
  • George Carlin: Said Elmer.
  • Elmer: I'm essential!
  • Mordecai: What are you?
  • George Carlin: Mordecai burst out.
  • Mordecai: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Rigby, would ya? Take that!
  • Elmer: Ow! Ooh!
  • George Carlin: Cried Elmer.
  • Mordecai: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • George Carlin: Elmer behave better after that. Until one day, Mordecai had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time.
  • (Mordecai crashes into the signal box)
  • George Carlin: Mordecai wasn't hurt, but Lexi Bunny was most annoyed.
  • Lexi: I am disappointed, Mordecai. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Rigby back and keep you.
  • Mordecai: I'm sorry, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Said Mordecai.
  • Lexi: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Al will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. Al won't like that.
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny was right. Al grumbled dreadfully about extra work.
  • Rigby: Anyone would think.
  • George Cralin: Said Rigby.
  • Rigby: That Modecai had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about a character and some tar wagons.
  • Al: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Said Al.
  • Al: It's not funny.
  • George Carlin: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Rigby: Well, well, well! Surely, Al, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • George Carlin: Al didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Elmer: Al is cross!
  • George Carlin: Sniggered Elmer.
  • Elmer: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Beedrill: Hold back!
  • George Carlin: Giggled the Beedrill to each other. Al did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Pooh's station. Luckily, Rigby was there.
  • Rigby: Help me up the hill, please!
  • George Carlin: Panted Al.
  • Al: These Beedrill are playing tricks.
  • Rigby: We'll show them.
  • George Carlin: Said Rigby. Slowly but surely, the snorting characters forced the Beedrill up the hill. But Al was losing steam.
  • Al: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Rigby: Leave it to me!
  • George Carlin: Shouted Rigby. The conductor was anxious.
  • Conductor: Go steady! Elmer's wounding!
  • (Rigby knocks Elmer down)
  • George Carlin: Elmer was knocked down. No one had been hurt, and soon Pooh came to clear the mess. Lexi Bunny was on board.
  • Lexi: I might have known it would be Rigby.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Pooh: Rigby was grand, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: Al had no steam left, but Rigby worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Lexi: Two would have been enough.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: I want to be fair, Rigby, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny was making up his mind about which character to send away, but that's another story.

The Deputation

  • George Carlin: Snow came early to the land of Cartoons. It was heavier than usual. Most characters hate snow. Mordecai and Rigby were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Shaggy: Help, help!
  • Rigby: Flatten my tail, Mordecai! It's Shaggy! Don't worry yourself, Shaggy! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • George Carlin: Shaggy was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The animals were looking glum. They told him Lexi Bunny was making a decision.
  • Rigby: She'll send us away for sure.
  • Dexter: It's a shame.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Prohyas: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Prohyas.
  • Al: That Elmer Fudd too.
  • George Carlin: Put in Al.
  • Al: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Shaggy: The animals were splendid in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Added Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It isn't fair.
  • George Carlin: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Dexter decided to talk to Pooh Bear about it.
  • Pooh: What you need...
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: ...is a deputation.
  • George Carlin: He explained what that was. Dexter ran back quickly.
  • Dexter: Pooh says we need a depostation.
  • Prohyas: Of course.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Prohays: The question is...
  • Shaggy: What is a desperation?
  • George Carlin: Asked Shaggy.
  • Dexter: It's when characters tell Lexi Bunny something's wrong.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter.
  • Kevin: Did you say tell Lexi Bunny?
  • George Carlin: Asked Kevin thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Prohyas: I purpose.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: That Dexter be our...um...disputation.
  • Dexter: Me!?
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Dexter.
  • Dexter: I can't!
  • Shaggy: Rubbish, Dexter.
  • George Carlin: Said Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: It's easy.
  • Prohyas: That's settled then.
  • George Carlin: Said Prohyas. Poor Dexter wished it wasn't.
  • Lexi: Hello, Dexter. It's nice to be back.
  • George Carlin: Dexter jumped.
  • Dexter: Uh, yes ma'am, please ma'am.
  • Lexi: You look nervous, Dexter. What's the matter?
  • Dexter: Please ma'am, they made me a desperation ma'am, to speak to you ma'am, I don't like it ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny pondered.
  • Lexi: Do you mean a deputation, Dexter?
  • Dexter: Yes ma'am, please ma'am. It's Mordecai and Rigby. They say, ma'am, that if you send them away, ma'am, well, they'll be turned to scrap, ma'am. That would be dreadful, ma'am. Please, ma'am, don't send them away.
  • Lexi: Thank you, Dexter. That will do.
  • George Carlin: Later, Lexi Bunny spoke to the characters.
  • Lexi: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings, and I give a lot of thought to the matter.
  • George Carlin: She paused impressively.
  • Lexi: Mordecai and Rigby, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • George Carlin: The animals were surprised.
  • Mordecai: Thank you, ma'am.
  • Lexi: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Rigby: Thank you, ma'am. Uh, does this mean that the both of us?
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny smiled.
  • Lexi: It means...
  • George Carlin: But the rest of her speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The animals were here to stay.

Ash Comes To Breakfast

  • George Carlin: Ash Ketchum has worked his route for many years, and knows it very well.
  • Ash's Driver: You know just where to stop, Ash.
  • George Carlin: Laughed his driver.
  • Ash's Driver: You could almost manage it without me.
  • George Carlin: Ash had become conceited. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Ash: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Dexter: Don't be so daft!
  • George Carlin: Snorted Dexter.
  • ​Tai: I'd never go without my driver.
  • George Carlin: Said Tai, earnestly.
  • Tai: I'd be frightened.
  • Ash: Puh!
  • George Carlin: Boasted Ash.
  • Ash: I'm not scared!
  • Tai: You'd never dare!
  • Ash: I would then, you'll see.
  • George Carlin: Next morning, the firelighter came. Ash drowsed comfortably, and the warmth spread through his body. Dexter and Tai were still asleep. Ash suddenly remembered.
  • Ash: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • George Carlin: He chuckled.
  • Ash: I'll show them. Driver said I could manage without him. I'll just go out, then I'll stop and WHEESH! That'll make them jump.
  • George Carlin: Ash thought he was being clever. Really, he was only moving because a careless cleaner had meddled with his body. He soon found his mistake. He tried to wheesh, but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare look at what was coming next; there was the principal's house. The principal was just about to have breakfast.
  • Ash: Horrors!
  • George Carlin: Cried Ash, and shut his eyes. (CRASH!) The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Ash had collected a bush on his travels. He peered into the room through its leaves. He couldn't speak. The principal was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Darkholme: You miserable trainer!
  • George Carlin: She scolded.
  • Darkholme: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I shall have to cook some more!
  • George Carlin: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time, it fell on Ash. Ash felt depressed. Workmen propped up the house with strong poles, and laid a path through the garden. Then the animals Mordecai and Rigby arrived.
  • Rigby: Don't worry yourself, Ash, we'll soon have you back on the path!
  • George Carlin: They laughed. Mordecai and Rigby working hard, managed to haul Ash back to safety. Bits of fencing, a bush, and a broken window frame festooned his front, which was badly twisted. The animals laughed and left him. Ash was in disgrace. There was worse to come.
  • Lexi: You're in a lot of trouble, Ash.
  • Ash: I know, ma'am. I'm sorry, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Ash's voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Lexi: You must go to the workshop and have your front mended, it will be a long job.
  • Ash: Yes, ma'am.
  • Lexi: Meanwhile, a girl from Hong Kong will do your work.
  • Ash: A G-g-girl, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Ash spluttered.
  • Lexi: Yes, Ash. Girls always stay in their houses until they are wanted. Girls never gallivant off to breakfast in principal's houses.

Meilin Rae

  • George Carlin: Dexter and Tai were worried. Ash's recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Lexi Bunny was waiting for them with important news.
  • Lexi Bunny: Here is Meilin Rae, who has come to help while Ash is...indisposed.
  • Dexter: Please ma'am, will she go when Ash comes back ma'am?
  • Lexi: That depends.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Tai: Yes, ma'am, we'll try, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Said the characters.
  • Lexi: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • George Carlin: Meilin was not easy to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Meilin: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • George Carlin: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Meilin: This is better.
  • George Carlin: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • George Carlin: The rubbish turned out to be Mitchie, Amethyst and Zoey who were most offended.
  • Mitchie: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • George Carlin: They fumed. Dexter and Tai had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings. The characters woke next morning feeling exhausted. Meilin, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Meilin: Oooh! Oooh!
  • George Carlin: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Meilin: Look at me.
  • George Carlin: She purred to the passengers.
  • Meilin: I'm the latest Hong Kong girl, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Ash's bumpy old Mitchie and Amethyst now.
  • George Carlin: The passengers waited for Meilin to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indigment.
  • Meilin: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Meilin's Driver: Surely.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Meilin's Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Meilin: I won't.
  • George Carlin: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: Dexter can do it. He loves messing about with pirates.
  • George Carlin: She began to shudder violently.
  • Meilin's Driver: Nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said her driver.
  • Meilin's Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • George Carlin: Meilin lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Meilin: Told you.
  • George Carlin: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Meilin: It's fitter's orders.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Meilin: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exams me carefully. Meilin, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • George Carlin: Finished Meilin.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • George Carlin: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Bugs Bunny send us such a feeble...
  • Meilin: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • George Carlin: Spluttered Meilin.
  • Meilin: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • George Carlin: So they uncoupled the van, and Meilin purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Meilin: That's a good story.
  • George Carlin: She chuckled.
  • Meilin: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • George Carlin: But she said it to herself.

Dexter's Predicament

  • George Carlin: Meilin Rae's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened to bulls and cows, and she remain very lazy and stubborn. One day, Tai brought Zoey to the station where Dexter was grumbling shunting.
  • Tai: Hello, Dexter. I see Meilin's left the milk behind again.
  • Dexter: I had to make a special journey within I suppose. Anyone would think I've nothing to do.
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Dexter.
  • Tai: Tell you what?
  • George Carlin: Replied Tai.
  • Tai: I'll take the milk, you fetch my Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Dexter had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the Beedrill about.
  • Dexter: Hurry along.
  • George Carlin: He said. The Beedrill grumbled to each other.
  • Beedrill: This is Tai's place! Dexter's got no right to poke his funnel in here and push us around.
  • George Carlin: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Beedrill: Pay Dexter back! Pay Dexter back!
  • Dexter: Come along.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Dexter.
  • Dexter: No nonsense.
  • Beedrill: We'll give him nonsense.
  • George Carlin: Giggled the Beedrill. But they followed so quietly that Dexter thought they were under control. Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead: All Trains Stop To Pin Down Brakes.
  • Dexter: Peep peep! Brakes, Conductor, please!
  • George Carlin: But before he could check them the pirates surged ahead.
  • Beedrill: On! On!
  • George Carlin: They cried.
  • Dexter: Help! Help!
  • George Carlin: Whistled Dexter. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag but was too late to switch Dexter to the runaway sidings. Frantically trying to grip the rails Dexter slid into the yard.
  • Dexter: Peep! Peep! Look out!
  • (Crash!)
  • George Carlin: The break van was in smithereens. Dexter's driver and fireman had jumped clear but Kevin was stranded. Next day, Lexi Bunny arrived. Tai and Meilin had helped to clear the wreckage but Dexter remained on his perch of Beedrill.
  • Lexi: We must now try.
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: To run a branch line with Tai and a Hong Kong girl. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Dexter.
  • Dexter: I am sorry, ma'am.
  • Lexi: You must stay here till we are ready.
  • George Carlin: Continued Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: And you really must be more careful with Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Dexter sighed. The Beedrill groaned beneath his feet. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Lexi Bunny spoke severely to Meilin too.
  • Lexi: My characters work hard. I send lazy characters away.
  • George Carlin: Meilin was ashamed.
  • Lexi: However, Tai says you worked hard after Kevin's accident. So you shall have another chance.
  • Meilin: Thank you, ma'am.
  • George Carlin: Said Meilin.
  • Meilin: I will work hard. Tai says he'll help me.
  • Lexi: Excellent. What Tai doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. But our Tai's an experienced character.
  • George Carlin: Next day, Ash came back, and Dexter was sent to be mended. Mitchie and Amethyst were delighted to see Ash again and he took them to a run at once. All were now friends, and Tai has taunt Meilin a great deal. She shooed a cow the other day all by herself. That show's you, doesn't it?

The Rangersel

  • George Carlin: Chip and Dale are a pair of chipmunks. Each has two feet, both paws and natural clothing. Their Beedrill are filled with China Clay. It is needed for pottery, paper, paint and many other things. The chipmunks were now kept busy pulling the Beedrill for characters on the main line and for ships in the harbour. One morning, they arranged some Beedrill and went away for more. They returned to find them all gone. The chipmunks were most surprised. Their drivers examine the patch of oil.
  • Driver: That's ranger.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Chip: It's a what'll?
  • George Carlin: Asked Chip.
  • Dale: A rangersel, I think.
  • George Carlin: Replied Dale.
  • Dale: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Chip: Coughs and sneezles spread rangersels.
  • Dale: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the rangersel came.
  • Chip: It isn't!
  • Dale: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • George Carlin: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Chip and Dale were horrified.
  • Chip: But the kongsel will magic us away like the Beedrill.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • George Carlin: Replied their drivers.
  • Drivers: We're more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know you're animals. So we'll take away your names and numbers and then this is what we'll do.
  • George Carlin: Puffing hard, the chipmunks set off on their journey to find the ranger. They were looking forward to playing tricks on him. Creeping into the yard, they found the ranger on a siding with missing Beedrill. Dale hid behind, but Chip went bodily alongside. The ranger looked up.
  • Jason: Do you mind?
  • Chip: Yes.
  • George Carlin: Said Chip.
  • Chip: I do. I want my Beedrill back.
  • Jason: These are mine.
  • George Carlin: Said the ranger.
  • Jason: Go away.
  • George Carlin: Chip pretended not to be frightened.
  • Chip: You're a big bully.
  • George Carlin: He whimpered.
  • Chip: You'll be sorry.
  • George Carlin: He ran back and hid behind the Beedrill on the other side. Dale now came forward.
  • Dale: Beedrill stealer!
  • George Carlin: Hissed Dale. He ran away too. Chip took his place. This went on and on till the ranger's eyes nearly popped out.
  • Jason: Stop! You're making me giddy.
  • George Carlin: The two chipmunks gazed at him.
  • Jason: Are there two of you?
  • Chip: Yes, we're chipmunks.
  • Jason: I might have known it.
  • George Carlin: Just then, Pooh Bear bustled up.
  • Pooh: Chip and Dale, why are you playing here?
  • Chip: We're not playing.
  • George Carlin: Protested Chip.
  • Dale: We're rescuing our Beedrill.
  • George Carlin: Squeaked Dale.
  • Dale: Even you don't take our Beedrill without asking, but this ranger did.
  • Pooh: There's no cause to be rude.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh severely.
  • Pooh: This ranger is a guy who is leader of all Power Rangers.
  • George Carlin: The chipmunks were most impressed.
  • Chip: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • Jason: Never mind.
  • George Carlin: The ranger smiled.
  • Jason: Call me Jason. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the Beedrill.
  • Pooh: That's all right then.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: Now off you go, Chip and Dale. Fetch Jason's Beedrill, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • George Carlin: He said to Pooh.
  • Pooh: But they're mattening at times.
  • George Carlin: Jason chuckled.
  • Jason: Mattening...
  • George Carlin: He said.
  • Jason: ...is the word.

Wrong Road

  • George Carlin: Ash's route is important, and so is Pooh Bear's. But their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Lexi Bunny does not allow the heavier main line characters like Prohyas to run on them. But one day, the way Prohyas was talking, he would have thought Lexi Bunny had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Prohyas: It's not fair!
  • George Carlin: Grumbled Prohyas.
  • Pooh: What isn't fair?
  • George Carlin: Asked Pooh.
  • Prohyas: Letting ordinary teenagers pull main line trains.
  • Pooh: Never mind, Prohyas. I'm sure Jason will let you pull his Beedrill sometimes.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas spluttered.
  • Prohyas: I won't pull Jason's dirty Beedrill. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Pooh: Why not? It will be a nice change.
  • Prohyas: Lexi Bunny would never approve.
  • George Carlin: Huffed Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas puffed away. Pooh chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two characters pulled two fast trains from the station. Prohyas always leaves first with an express for the main line. Kevin follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Prohyas to start. The fireman looked back towards the conductor's van and saw something green waving.
  • Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • George Carlin: He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Prohyas started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Prohyas had been stopped and brought back, Pooh was already late with his train. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Pooh along the main line. Jason was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Chip and Dale peeped into the yard. There were no Beedrill for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Prohyas would be much better fun.
  • Chip: What's that?
  • George Carlin: Asked Chip.
  • Dale: Sheesh!
  • George Carlin: Whispered Dale.
  • Dale: It's Prohyas.
  • Chip: It looks like Prohyas, but it can't be. Prohyas never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Dale: If it isn't Prohyas...
  • George Carlin: Said Dale.
  • Dale: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Chip: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Dale: No Chip, this lots used for scrap we'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas was alarmed.
  • Prohyas: I am Prohyas. Stop, stop!
  • George Carlin: When Jason suddenly arrived, Prohyas thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Prohyas: Jason, my dear character, save me.
  • George Carlin: Jason quickly sized up the situation and threatened to take away the Beedrill he had brought for Chip and Dale. This made the chipmunks behave at once. Prohyas thought Jason was wonderful.
  • Prohyas: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • Jason: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Jason.
  • Jason: It's just a knack.
  • George Carlin: Prohyas still believed that Jason saved his life. But he knows the chipmunks were only teasing. Don't we?

Pooh's Exploit

  • George Carlin: Sonic the Hedgehog was giving some visitors a tour of the land of Cartoons. It was their last afternoon, and Pooh was preparing to take them to meet Chip and Dale. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Shaggy: Did you see him straining?
  • George Carlin: Asked Shaggy.
  • Al: Positively painful.
  • George Carlin: Remarked Al.
  • Prohyas: Just pathetic.
  • George Carlin: Grunted Prohyas.
  • Prohyas: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Kevin: Shut up!
  • George Carlin: Burst out Kevin.
  • Kevin: You're all jealous. Pooh's better than any of you.
  • Jason: You're right, Kevin.
  • George Carlin: Said Jason.
  • Jason: Pooh's old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Pooh: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh, as he finally puffed out of the station. Chip and Dale were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special. Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Pooh took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Pooh. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Pooh's feet slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Pooh.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned man. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Pooh: I'll try, sir.
  • George Carlin: Promised Pooh. Pooh puffed and pulled his hardest. But his feet kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and conductor went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Pooh. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with Beedrill.
  • Pooh: That'll be much easier.
  • George Carlin: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: Come on!
  • George Carlin: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Poohr: I've done it, I've done it!
  • George Carlin: Puffed Pooh.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • George Carlin: And he listened happily to Pooh's steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearily, but unbeaten, Pooh steamed in. Shaggy was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Pooh: Peep peep!
  • George Carlin: Lexi Bunny angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Pooh, his driver and fireman. Kevin and Jason saw to it that Pooh was left in peace. Prohyas and Al remain respectfully silent.

Dexter's Ghostly Trick

  • (Noctowl hooting twice, followed by ghostly air horn)
  • Dexter: And every year, on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Ash: Dexter, what are you talking about?
  • Dexter: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Ash and Tai: Where?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash and Tai.
  • Dexter: He didn't say, oh it makes my feet wobble to think of it.
  • Ash: Pooh!
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're just a silly little boy. I'm not scared.
  • Dexter: Ash didn't believe in ghosts.
  • George Carlin: Said Dexter next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story.
  • George Carlin: Dexter was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Alex knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Dexter: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • George Carlin: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (A loud crash is heard as Dexter hits the cart)
  • George Carlin: Dexter broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Dexter's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • George Carlin: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Dexter, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • George Carlin: Dexter chuckled.
  • Dexter: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Ash. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little boy.
  • George Carlin: Tai promised to help. Ash was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Tai: Dexter's had an accident!
  • George Carlin: Cried Tai.
  • Ash: Poor boy.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Tai: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Ash: Out with it, Tai, I can't wait all evening.
  • Tai: I've just seen something.
  • George Carlin: Said Tai.
  • Tai: It looked like Dexter's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Ash: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Tai. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear a loud brake sound)
  • Dexter: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • George Carlin: Wailed Dexter.
  • Tai: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Dexter: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Dexter all along)
  • Ash: Oh dear!
  • George Carlin: Explained Ash.
  • Ash: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Mitchie and Amethyst.
  • ​George Carlin: It was morning when Ash returned.
  • Tai: Where have you been?
  • George Carlin: Asked Tai.
  • Ash: Ah well.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I knew you be sad about Dexter, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...
  • (A ghostly whistle is heard)
  • Ash: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • George Carlin: Dexter was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Dexter: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Tai: Anyone would think...
  • George Carlin: Chuckled Tai.
  • Tai: ...that our Ash was just seen a ghost!

Woolly Bear

  • George Carlin: In the summer, the work crews cut the long grass along the tracks, raking it into heaps to dry in the sun. At this time of year, Dexter stops where they have been cutting. The men load up his empty wagons and he pulls them to the station. Tai then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • Dexter: Wheeeeeeeesh!
  • George Carlin: Dexter gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Dexter: Don't be frightened, Ash.
  • George Carlin: He laughed.
  • Dexter: It's only me!
  • Ash: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: You're like...
  • Dexter: Ugly indeed. I'm...
  • Ash: Green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • George Carlin: Continued Ash firmly.
  • Ash: You crawl like one too.
  • Dexter: I don't!
  • Ash: Who's been late every afternoon this week?
  • Dexter: It's the hay.
  • Ash: I can't help that.
  • George Carlin: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Time's time, and Lexi Bunny relies on me to keep it. I can't if you crawl in the hay till all hours.
  • Dexter: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • George Carlin: Fumed Dexter, as he set off to collect some hay to take to the harbour.
  • Dexter: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly anyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Ash's corners. Ash says I'm always late.
  • George Carlin: He grumbled.
  • Dexter: I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Ash? He can always catch up time farther on.
  • George Carlin: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (The crate of treacle appears held by a crane it falls down and lands on Dexter with a loud Wham!)
  • George Carlin: A crate of treacle was upset all over Dexter. Dexter was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away. The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Dexter's Driver: Look at that!
  • George Carlin: Explained the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the track. The line climbed here.
  • Dexter's Driver: Take a run at it, Dexter.
  • George Carlin: His driver advised. Dexter gathered speed. But the hay made the rails slippery and his feet wouldn't grip. Time after time he stalled with spinning feet and had to wait until the line ahead was cleared before he could start again. Everyone was waiting. Ash seethed impatiently.
  • Ash: Ten minutes late. I warned him. Passengers will complain and Bugs Bunny...
  • George Carlin: Then they all saw Dexter. They laughed and shouted.
  • (Passengers laughing)
  • Dexter: Sorry I'm late.
  • George Carlin: Dexter panted.
  • Ash: Look what's crawled out of the hay!
  • George Carlin: Teased Ash.
  • Dexter: What's wrong?
  • George Carlin: Asked Dexter.
  • Ash: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Ash.
  • Ash: It's worth been late to have seen you.
  • George Carlin: When Dexter got home, his driver showed him what he looked like in the mirror.
  • (Dexter gets shocked in the mirror)
  • Dexter: Flatten my glasses! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just look like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Tai comes.
  • George Carlin: But it was no good. Ash told Tai all about it.
  • (Workmen are seen clearing the hay out of Dexter)
  • George Carlin: Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Ash and Tai made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawled about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Dexter thought they were really being very silly indeed!

Ash and The Missing Christmas Tree

  • George Carlin: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected on the land of Cartoons. All the characters were busy with the final preparations. Lexi Bunny wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Lexi Bunny was now waiting impatiently for Ash.
  • Lexi: Quickly now.
  • George Carlin: She said.
  • Lexi: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Ash. Kevin can look after Mitchie and Amethyst until you get back.
  • Ash: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • George Carlin: Asked Ash.
  • Lexi: We'll see.
  • George Carlin: Promised Lexii.
  • Ash: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Ash as he set off on his important mission. Ash collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Ash: I mustn't be late.
  • George Carlin: He thought.
  • Ash: Lexi Bunny is relying on me.
  • George Carlin: Whistling bravely, Ash tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Ash was snowed under. Meanwhile the other characters waited and waited. They were grumbling about Ash for being late.
  • Lexi: Silence!
  • George Carlin: Said Lexi Bunny.
  • Lexi: Ash left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • George Carlin: The characters now felt sorry for Ash and cold but confident the animals set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Ash: Help! Help!
  • Mordecai: Hush!
  • George Carlin: Said Mordecai.
  • Mordecai: I can hear something.
  • Rigby: Probably the wind.
  • George Carlin: Said Rigby.
  • Ash: Help!
  • Mordecai: No listen.
  • George Carlin: Insisted Mordecai.
  • Ash: Over here!
  • Rigby: Oh, it's Ash. Come on the poor Pokemon trainer must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • George Carlin: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Ash's driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Ash and the precious Christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Lexi Bunny greeted them warmly.
  • Lexi: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • George Carlin: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Lexi: One, two, three!
  • George Carlin: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Lexi: Ladies and gentlemen and children, I give you three cheers for Ash Ketchum and all his friends who had made this occasion possible.
  • George Carlin: Suddenly, there was a strange whirring sound. Dexter and Tai smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Launchpad McQuack touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Santa Claus. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Ash: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • George Carlin: Whispered Ash to Dexter.
  • Ash: But it was worth it for this party. Happy Holiday, Dexter. Happy Holiday, everyone.
