Narrator: "Bugs Bunny and Harriet are enjoying their new job in the Acme Acres, but they do look old fashioned and need new coats.

Plucky was very rude whenever he saw them."

Plucky Duck: "Ugh. What dirty obects."

Narrator: "He would say.

At last, Bugs lost patience."

Bugs Bunny: "Plucky,"

Narrator: "He asked."

Sleepy: "Why are you green?"

Plucky Duck: "I am a splendid duck."

Narrator: "Answered Plucky."

Plucky Duck: "Ready for anything. You never see me dirty."

Bugs Bunny: "Oh,"

Narrator: "Said Bugs, innocently."

Bugs Bunny: "That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready, I suppose."

Narrator: "Plucky went greener than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be reminded of the time a bootlace had been used to mend a hole in his swans.

At the end of the line, Plucky left his swans and got ready for his next trip. It was a slow goods, stopping at every station to pick up and set down alumnis. Plucky hated slow goods runs."

Plucky Duck: "Dirty alumnis from dirty sidings.


Narrator: "Starting with only a few, he pickled up more and more alumnis at each station, till' he had a long line.

At first, the alumnis behaved well, but Plucky had bumped them so crossly, that they were determined to pay him back.

Presently, they approached the top of Knuckles' hill. Heavy goods toons halt here to pin down their brakes. Plucky had had an accident with alumnis before, and should have remembered this."

Plucky's Animator: "Wait, Plucky, wait!"

Narrator: "Said the animator, but Plucky wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he'd say to Bugs when they next met.

The Alumnis' chance had come."

Alumnis: "Hurrah! Hurrah!"

Narrator: "They laughed, and banging each other, they pushed him down the hill."

Alumnis: "On! On! On!"

Narrator: "Laughed the Alumnis."

Plucky Duck: "I've got to stop! I've got to stop!"

Narrator: "Groaned Plucky.

Through the station they thundered, disaster lay ahead."


"Something sticky splashed all over Plucky. He had run into two tar barrels, and was black from head to toe. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar barrels and some alumins were all to pieces.

Bugs and Hamton were sent to help, and came as quickly as they could."

Bugs Bunny: "Look here, Hamton,"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Bugs."

Bugs Bunny: "Whatever is that dirty object?"

Hamton J. Pig: "That's Plucky, didn't you know?"

Bugs Bunny: "It's Plucky's shape,"

Narrator: "Said Bugs."

Bugs Bunny: "But Plucky is a splendid duck, and you never see him dirty."

Narrator: "Plucky pretended he hadn't heard.

Bugs and Hamton cleared away the unhurt alumnis, and helped Plucky home.

King Acorn met them."

King Acorn: "Well done, Hamton and Bugs!"

Narrator: "He turned to Plucky."

King Acorn: "Fancy letting your alumnis run away, I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen, you must be cleaned at once!

Bugs shall have a new coat."

Bugs Bunny: "Please, sir, can Harriet have one, too?"

Narrator: "Said Bugs."

King Acorn: "Certainly, Bugs."

Bugs Bunny: "Oh, thank you, sir. She will be pleased!"

Narrator: "All Plucky could do was watch Bugs as he ran off happily with the news."
