Narrator: "Omega would not stop grumbling. He grumbled that he wasn't polished enough, he grumbled that he was overworked. Most of all, he grumbled about the passengers."
Yakko: "I'm ashamed of you, Omega."
Narrator: "Said Yakko."
Yakko: "Thank goodness Wakko is coming home soon. Perhaps he'll teach you some sense before it's too late.
Omega: "What has Wakko to do with me?"
Yakko: "Wakko saved our village."
Narrator: "Replied Yakko."
Li'l Sneezer: "Please, tell us about it!"
Narrator: "Said Li'l Sneezer."
Narrator: "Began Yakko,"
Yakko: "It was before you came here. Things were bad. Wakko and I had to keep the business running, or our village would have to close."
Li'l Sneezer: "How awful."
Narrator: "Murmured Sneezer."
Yakko: "I tried hard,"
Narrator: "Continued Yakko,"
Yakko: "But my old feet ached. Wakko understood."
Wakko: "It's my turn now!"
Yakko: "He'd tell me. He was often short of stamina, but he always struggled to a station, and then rested there.
Wakko: "I mustn't stop between stations."
Yakko: "He'd say."
Wakko: "The passengers wouldn't like it."
Narrator: "Huffed Omega. He had stopped on a viaduct and hadn't cared at all."
Narrator: "Continued Yakko,"
Yakko: "Get cross if you stop at the wrong places. Wakko stopped in a wrong place once, and this is what happened.
One wet and windy afternoon, when the ground was damp, Wakko was travelling home with a full set; there were even passengers at the end.
It wasn't a comfortable ride at all.
Wakko's feet kept slipping, and it was a steep climb.
At last his feet gripped the ground again."
Wakko: "The worst is over,"
Yakko: "He thought,"
Wakko: "Now we're away."
Yakko: "But they weren't."
Wakko: "Aaah! I've got a cramp!"
Yakko: "He groaned.
And Wakko stopped on the loneliest part of the line.
His animator examined him carefully."
Wakko's Animator: "Your leg gear has jammed. We need to reach the next station. Do you think you can still get us there?"
Wakko: "I'll try."
Yakko: "Replied Wakko.
Wakko did his best."
Wakko: "If I fail,"
Yakko: "He thought to himself,"
Wakko: "The passengers will be cross and the village will close."
Yakko: "Everything blurred. He was really too tired to make another limp of his legs, but he did, and another, and another, and another.
Finally, tired, but triumphant, Wakko reached the station."
Wakko: "I'm here at last!"
Yakko: "He wheezed."
Passengers: "Thank you for getting us home."
Yakko: "Said the passengers."
Passengers: "We'll tell all our friends what a fine village this is.
Yakko: "His animator was delighted."
Wakko's Animator: "You're a gallant little Animaniac."
Yakko: "He said to Wakko."
Wakko's Animator: "When you're rested, we'll mend you, so you'll be ready for tomorrow."
Narrator: "Smiled Yakko,"
Yakko: "Wakko always was ready for tomorrow."
Omega: "Thanks for telling us about him."
Narrator: "Whispered Omega."
Omega: "I was wrong; Passengers are important after all."
Narrator: "The next day, Wakko came home. All the toons were there to greet him. Sonic pushed his crane to the siding, where he was lifted onto the ground.
This was the signal for a chorus of whistles from toons large and small. Everyone was happy, and Wakko was the happiest of them all."
Wakko: "You know,"
Narrator: "He whispered to Yakko,"
Wakko: "This helps a little toon to feel that at last, he has really come home."
