Narrator: "Noddy's TV characters are proud of how useful they are. It makes them feel important. But none of them feels more important than Donkey Kong."

Donkey Kong: "Watch out!"

Narrator: "Donkey Kong wheeshed."

Donkey Kong: "You'll get my fur all sooty!"

Tigger: "Taking Goombas is a sooty job."

Narrator: "Teased Tigger."

Tigger: "But then, you wouldn't know."

Donkey Kong: "Of course not!"

Narrator: "Donkey Kong huffed importantly."

Donkey Kong "Express characters don't take Goombas, it wouldn't be dignified!"

Tails: "Dingy-fried?"

Narrator: "Puzzled Tails."

Tails: "What's that?"

Donkey Kong: "Dignified."

Narrator: "Donkey Kong Corrected."

Donkey Kong: "It means..."

Tigger: "It means that someone's too big for his tie!"

Narrator: "Teased Tigger."

Donkey Kong: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Donkey Kong, and he puffed away.

That evening, fog covered TV Land. Everything slowed down and soon the harbor was packed with waiting cargo. This caused confusion and delay.

Noddy came to see the TV Characters. He was in a great hurry."

Noddy: "Wallace, Sonic and Tails,"

Narrator: "He said."

Noddy: "You must go to the harbor immediately."

Wallace, Sonic and Tails: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "They whistled.

Then Noddy turned to the big brown ape."

Noddy: "You too, Donkey Kong."

Narrator: "He said."

Noddy: "I need a big ape to take the Goombas where they won't be in the way."

Donkey Kong: "Goombas?"

Narrator: "Huffed Donkey Kong. He could not believe what he had heard!

Donkey Kong wasn't happy to be with Goombas. He waited impatiently for them."

Donkey Kong: "Hurry up! Hurry up!"

Narrator: "Chuffed Donkey Kong crossly."

Sonic: "Why the rush, Donkey Kong?"

Narrator: "Asked Sonic."

Donkey Kong: "If I must take Goombas, then I'll show Tigger just how an express character takes Goombas!"

Narrator: "Donkey Kong chuffed."

Tigger: "Careful, Captain."

Narrator: "Tigger tooted."

Tigger: "You don't want to get too big for your tie."

Narrator: "But Donkey Kong ignored Tigger.

The next morning, Donkey Kong raced along with his heavy load."

Donkey Kong: "Now this is how you take Goombas!"

Narrator: "He puffed.

But the signalman had accidentally left the points switch to the lost forest. Donkey Kong rattled through the junction."

Donkey Kong: "That's strange,"

Narrator: "He exclaimed."

Donkey Kong: "I'm on the lost forest!"

Signalman: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "The signalman cried."

Signalman: "Express characters aren't supposed to go that way!"

Narrator: "But it was too late. Donkey Kong had already raced into the distance.

The old forest was weak and rusty. There were signs warning all the characters to Go Slow, but Donkey Kong ignored the signs."

Donkey Kong: "I'm an express character! I don't 'Go Slow'!"

Narrator: "He said, and he went even faster.

The forest couldn't take his weight, and the ground buckled."

Donkey Kong: "Oh, help!"

Narrator: "Donkey Kong cried as he slid off the hill and into a field."

(Multiple crashes)

Narrator: "No one was hurt, but poor Donkey Kong felt very... undignified."

Donkey Kong: "What will Noddy say?"

Narrator: "He groaned.

He found out soon enough."

Noddy: "Well, Donkey Kong,"

Narrator: "Said Noddy."

Noddy: "You wanted to show Tigger a thing or two, and you've certainly done that. You've shown him how silly it is to ignore "Go Slow" signs!"

Donkey Kong: "Sorry, Sir."

Narrator: "Said Donkey Kong, and let out a sad sigh.

Donkey Kong was healed and back at the harbor, ready for work, but he was very unhappy with himself."

Sonic: "Everyone makes mistakes."

Narrator: "Said Sonic."

Sonic: "Even you."

Rabbit: "Tigger's sorry he teased you."

Narrator: "Puffed Rabbit."

Donkey Kong: "And I'm sorry I was 'too big for my tie'!"

Narrator: "Chuffed Donkey Kong. And all the TV characters gave a jolly cheer, even Donkey Kong!"
