Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian had been working in the coal yards all day. The little dalmatian was covered in coal dust."

Pongo's Driver: "We can't clean you up tonight, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "There's a problem with the hose pipe."

Pongo: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "A bath would make me feel much better. The others are sure to say I look silly."

Narrator: "But the Disney characters were too busy arguing to notice Pongo. Donald was talking loudest of all."

Donald: "I deserve a new coat of feathers. Mickey says I'm the pride of Disneyland, and..."

Baloo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Huffed Baloo."

Baloo: "We're all the pride of Disneyland!"

Piglet: "It's been like this all day."

Narrator: "Confided Piglet to Pongo."

Piglet: "Donald's getting a new coat of feathers and won't stop boasting about it."

Pongo: "Why Donald? I'm the one who needs a new coat. Look at me!"

Donald: "I'd rather not."

Narrator: "Retorted Donald.

Donald: "You're not a pleasant sight, and wouldn't understand the needs of a really important duck."

Narrator: "Pongo was fuming!

Next morning, as Donald was being refeathered, Baloo had an accident!"


Donald: "If you can't push pirates properly, Baloo, why not talk to a tree instead? You know how much you like the forest.

Baloo: "As a matter of fact, bossy bill, Mickey is inspecting Disneyland for trees that are too close to the path. He's worried they might cause trouble."

Donald: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Laughed Donald."

Donald: "If I came upon a tree, I'd just push it aside!"

Baloo: "Really?"

Narrator: "Replied Baloo.

Soon Donald was showing off his feathers."

Donald: "Make way for an important duck!"

Piglet: "You wouldn't feel important if one of these trees crashed on you; you'd feel hurt!"

Narrator: "Reproached Piglet."

Donald: "Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!"

Sebastian: "You should be careful, Donald, trees can be just as powerful as ducks."

Narrator: "Advised Sebastian."

Donald: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Donald."

Donald: "Now, excuse me, Mickey Mouse needs me to pull the express."

Narrator: "And he huffed away.

But Donald was wrong."

Mickey Mouse: "You must go to the harbor and collect some important goods, Donald. They're heavy, so be careful."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Donald: "But sir, I've just been refeathered. Can't Pongo or Piglet do it? They're dirty and like working with pirates."

Mickey Mouse: "Really useful Disney characters don't argue!"

Narrator:: "So Donald didn't.

By the time he arrived at the harbor, the weather had changed for the worst."

A Pirate: "Your feathers are nice, Donald, pity about your face though."

Narrator: "Said a pirate.

Donald ignored them and set off.

Soon, they came to a hill, and his driver knew that they were in for a difficult time. An old tree, close to the path, was being blown by the strong winds, and rain had weakened the slope. All of a sudden, the tree moved!"

Donald: "Ooh, help!"

Narrator: "Cried Donald."

Donald: "Go away!"

Narrator: "But of course, the tree couldn't. Donald tried to reverse away from the tree, but his pirates were too heavy."

(Pongo barks)

"Then, he heard a bark."

Donald's Driver: "It's Pongo!"

Narrator: "Called his driver.

Donald felt embarrassed and worried that Pongo would laugh at him, but Pongo didn't. He knew that this was no time for teasing."

Pongo: "I'm ready!"

Narrator: "Barked Pongo."

Donald: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald: "As ready as I'll ever be."

(The tree crashes to the ground)

Narrator: "They were just in time.

Later, Donald spoke to Pongo."

Donald: "Piglet and Sebastian were right to warn me. Thank you for rescuing me, Pongo."

Pongo: "Oh, that's all right. We Disney characters must pull together, whatever the weather."

Narrator: "Just then, Hercules bustled in."

Hercules: "Mickey Mouse thinks you're both brave Disney characters. Pongo, you're going to have a new coat of fur, and Donald, Mickey says that tomorrow, you'll pull the special express!"

Narrator: "Everyone was very happy."
