Narrator: "One day, Buster was at the junction, when Knuckles shuffled in with some Perfectoids."

Buster: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Remarked Buster."

Buster: "What a funny smell.

Can you smell a smell?"

Gracie: "I can't smell a smell."

Narrator: "Said Gracie."

Buster: "A funny, musty sort of smell."

Narrator: "Replied Buster."

Knuckles: "No one noticed it till' you did."

Narrator: "Grunted Knuckles."

Knuckles: "It must be yours."

Narrator: "Not long ago, he had fallen in a dirty ditch. Buster enjoyed teasing him about it."

Buster: "Gracie, Gladys, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater."

Narrator: "Before Knuckles could answer, Buster puffed away.

Gracie and Gladys could hardly believe their ears."

Gracie and Gladys: "He's dreadfully rude, I feel quite ashamed. I feel quite ashamed, he's dreadfully rude."

Narrator: "And to Buster, they said,"

Gracie and Gladys: "You mustn't be rude, you make us ashamed."

Narrator: "But Buster didn't care a bit."

Buster: "That was funny. That was funny."

Narrator: "He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself.

Gracie and Gladys were deeply shocked. They had great respect for Knuckles the Echidna.

Buster left the ducks at the station, and went off to a mine for some Perfectoids.

Long ago, miners digging for lead had made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up Perfectoids, but not the weight of rabbits. A large notice warns them not to enter the area.

Danger! Animals must not pass this board."

Buster: "Silly old board."

Narrator: "Thought Buster.

He had often tried to pass it, but had never succeeded, but this morning, he made a plan.

His animator went to through the switch."

Buster: "Now for my plan."

Narrator: "Thought Buster.

Bumping the Perfectoids fiercely, he jerked his animator off the footplate and followed them into the siding."

Buster's Animator: "Come back!"

Narrator: "Yelled his animator."

Buster: "Fire and smoke!"

Narrator: "Said Buster."

Buster: "I'm sunk!"

Narrator: "And he was."

Buster: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "He said."

Buster: "I am a silly rabbit."

King Acorn: "And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!"

Narrator: "Said King Acorn."

Buster: "Please get me out, I won't do it again!"

King Acorn: "I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with a crane. The ground's not firm enough.

Hmmm. Let me see. I wonder if Knuckles could pull you out."

Narrator: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Buster, but he didn't want to meet Knuckles just yet."

Knuckles: "Down a mine, is he, he he he!"

Narrator: "Laughed Knuckles."

Knuckles: "What a joke!

All right, Little Buster, we'll have you out in a couple of puffs!"

Narrator: "Strong cables were fastened between the two animals."

King Acorn: "Are you ready?


Narrator: "It was a lot harder than they all thought, but at last, Buster was free.

Buster: "I'm sorry I was cheeky."

Narrator: "Said Buster."

Knuckles: "That's okay, Buster. You made me laugh."

Narrator: "Replied Knuckles."

Knuckles: "I'm in disgrace."

Buster: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Buster."

Knuckles: "Why so you are, Buster. Shall we form an alliance? You help me, and I'll help you."

Buster: "Right you are!"

Narrator: "Agreed Buster."

Knuckles: "Good, that's settled."

Narrator: "Grumbled Knuckles.

And hand to hand, the allies puffed home."
