Transcript

Jake, Dipper and The Coal

  • Ringo Starr: It was a beautiful morning in Disneyland. Jake Long's smart clothes sparked in the sunshine, as he strolled happily along his route with Janna and Hope. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Dipper: Hello, Jake.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Dipper.
  • Dipper: You look splendid.
  • Jake: Yes indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Boasted Jake.
  • Jake: Blue is the only proper color for a character.
  • Penn: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Penn.
  • Dipper: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Dipper.
  • Jake: Well, well, anyway.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Jake.
  • Jake: Blue is the only color for a really useful engine. Anyone knows that.
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper said no more. He just grinned at Penn. Later, Jake was resting when Dipper arrived. A large hopper was loading his pirates full of coal. Jake was still being cheeky.
  • Jake: Careful.
  • Ringo Starr: He warned.
  • Jake: Watch out with those silly pirates.
  • Pirates: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: Muttered the pirates.
  • Jake: And by the way.
  • Ringo Starr: Went on Jake.
  • Jake: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • Ringo Starr: The last load poured down.
  • Jake: Help, I'm choking!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Jake.
  • Jake: Get me out!
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Jake's smart clothes was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Dipper: Ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Dipper.
  • Dipper: You don't look really useful now, Jake. You look really disgraceful.
  • Jake: I'm not disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Choked Jake.
  • Jake: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • Ringo Starr: It took so long to clean Jake that he wasn't it time for his next train. Penn had to take Janna and Hope.
  • Janna: Poor Jake.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Janna and Hope. They were most upset. Jake was grumpy in the shed that night. Penn thought it made a great joke, but Dipper was cross with Jake for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Dipper: Fancy a really useful blue character like Jake becoming a disgrace to Mickey Mouse's railway.
  • Ringo Starr: Next day, Jake was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Dipper bring his pirates from the junction. The pirates were heavy and Dipper was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • Ringo Starr: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Dipper found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Dipper: Ooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Dipper.
  • Dipper: Help!
  • Ringo Starr: The buffers were broken and Dipper was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Jake to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Jake: Now Dipper has learned his lesson too.
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two characters made up their quarrel.
  • Dipper: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Jake.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Dipper.
  • Dipper: You do know that, don't you?
  • Jake: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Jake.
  • Jake: And I'm sorry I was cheeky. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.

Cows

  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty cattle pirates to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Kuzco was heading for trouble.
  • Kuzco: Come on! Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Pirates: Oh, oh, oh, oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Screamed the pirates. Kuzco puffed and clanked, the cars rattled and screamed. Some cows were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Kuzco clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some pirates were left behind.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to cattle pirates.
  • Kuzco: Bother those pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Kuzco: Why can't they come quietly?
  • Ringo Starr: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Beck and Brad heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Beck: Fancy allowing cows to break his train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • Ringo Starr: Penn was cross.
  • Penn: You couldn't help it, Kuzco. They've never met cows. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • Ringo Starr: Some days later, Beck rushed through Kuzco's Station.
  • Beck: Boop boop! Mind the cows! Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Beck.
  • Coaches: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled his coaches. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Beck that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Beck's Driver: Whoa, Beck!
  • Ringo Starr: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Gordon: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Beck.
  • Beck: It's only a cow! Shooh! Shooh!
  • Ringo Starr: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the cow wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Brad arrived.
  • Brad: What's this? A cow? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the cow. Brad backed away nervously.
  • Brad: I don't want to hurt her.
  • Ringo Starr: At the next station, Brad's guard told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, ready to go to market. Dipper will take her along.
  • Ringo Starr: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • Brad: Not a word.
  • Beck: Keep it dark.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Beck and Brad to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Kuzco: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: Two big characters afraid of a cow.
  • Beck: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Beck.
  • Beck: We didn't want the poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what mean, my dear Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: Yes, Beck.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco. Beck felt somehow that Kuzco "saw" only too well.

McQueen's Chase

  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Kuzco was waiting to pick up passengers from Jake Long.
  • Kuzco: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Jake? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • Ringo Starr: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Jake. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Lightning McQueen in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • Ringo Starr: He clambered down.
  • Lightning McQueen: Stop, stop! I've got Thomas' passengers!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Lightning McQueen, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Kuzco was gone.
  • Lightning McQueen: Bother.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Bother Jake's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'll catch Kuzco or bust.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • Ringo Starr: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'll never be the same car again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • Ringo Starr: Cheered Lightning McQueen as he reached the top.
  • Lightning McQueen: Oh no! Kuzco's at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Lightning McQueen toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Lightning McQueen!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • Ringo Starr: Lightning McQueen skitted into the yard.
  • Lightning McQueen: Wait, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Lightning McQueen. He was just in time to see Kuzco puffed away.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Kuzco. I'll just make sure.
  • Ringo Starr: He spoke to the stationmaster. Lightning McQueen and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers, as Lightning McQueen chased after Kuzco once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the coaches as Kuzco snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Kuzco: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: Get in quickly please.
  • Ringo Starr: The guard blew the whistle and Kuzco's driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Lightning McQueen. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the guard and driver what had happened.
  • Kuzco: I'm sorry about the chase, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Lightning McQueen: My fault.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Late at junction. You didn't know about Jake's passengers.
  • Kuzco: Peep peep! Goodbye, Bertie! We're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Kuzco.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Lightning McQueen!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers. Lightning McQueen raced back to tell Jake that all was well.
  • Jake: Thank you, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jake.
  • Jake: You're a very good friend indeed.

Saved From Scrap

  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse works his characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Kuzco: I'm going to the scrap yard today.
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco called to Jake.
  • Jake: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Jake cheekily. Jake was only teasing. The scrap yard is full of rusty old parts and machinery. The are broken into pieces, loaded into cars, and Kuzco pulls them to the steel works where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Kuzco in the yard. It was a boy.
  • Kuzco: Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Phineas: I'm Phineas. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Kuzco: What a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Phineas: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new. But my owner says I'm old-fashioned.
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco snorted.
  • Kuzco: People say I'm old-fashioned, but I don't care. Mickey Mouse says I'm a useful character. What work did you do?
  • Phineas: My owner would send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • Ringo Starr: Phineas shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Phineas: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco set off to the station.
  • Kuzco: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Phineas, I must.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought of all his friends who liked characters. But strangely, none of them would have room for a boy at home.
  • Kuzco: It's a shame, It's a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. Then...
  • Kuzco: Peep-peep! Why didn't I think of him before?
  • Ringo Starr: There, on the platform was the very person.
  • Grimsby: Hello, Kuzco. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked the driver.
  • Kuzco's Driver: There's a boy in the scrap yard, Grimsby. He'll be broken up next week. Principal Skeeves says he never drove a better character.
  • Kuzco: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Grimsby: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Grimsby. Principal Skeeves came on Saturday.
  • Skeeves: The reverend's coming to see you, Phineas. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Phineas: Do you think he will?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Phineas hopefully.
  • Skeeves: He will when I've lit your fire and clean you up.
  • Ringo Starr: Grimsby and his two boys arrived that evening. Phineas hadn't been so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Grimsby: Show your paces, Phineas.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Grimsby. Later, he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Grimsby: I've got him cheap, Skeeves. Cheap.
  • Skeeves: Do you hear that, Grimsby?
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Skeeves.
  • Skeeves: The reverend saved you and you live in the vicarage now.
  • Phineas: Peep-peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Phineas. Now Phineas's home is in the vicarage orchard. And he sees Kuzco every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Phineas likes his work, but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers around the orchard, giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Phineas: I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispers happily.

Old Iron

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Marco had to wait at the station till Kuzco and his books came in. This made him cross.
  • Marco: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco laughed and Marco fumed again. After Marco had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • Marco: Kuzco is impossible!
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled to the others.
  • Marco: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Jake and Dipper were indictment.
  • Dipper: Old iron! Slow!
  • Ash: Why, Kuzco could beat you in a race any day!
  • Marco: Really!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marco.
  • Marco: I should like to see him do it.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, Marco's driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. Marco was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Marco puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • Ringo Starr: He announced at last. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on Marco's footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when Marco started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • Ringo Starr: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • Ringo Starr: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman was ready when Kuzco arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Kuzco: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Kuzco. Marco was laughing.
  • Marco: What a lark! What a lark!
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • Marco: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Kuzco: We're coming, we're coming!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Kuzco. Kuzco was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with Marco.
  • Edward's Driver: Steady, Edward.
  • Ringo Starr: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Kuzco's front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over James' buffer. The engines swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Kuzco's driver checked the characters' speed, and Marco's fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Kuzco: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Kuzco.
  • Marco: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Marco.
  • Marco: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Kuzco. The characters arrived at the station side by side. Mickey Mouse was waiting.
  • Mickey: A fine piece of work.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Mickey: Marco, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Kuzco. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Kuzco: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: It'll be lovely not to clank.

Jake and Phineas

  • Ringo Starr: Phineas Flynn enjoyed living in the Danville Orchard. Kuzco came to see him everyday, but sometimes Phineas didn't have enough work to do.
  • Phineas: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • Ringo Starr: He sighed one day.
  • Phineas: And I do like company, especially children's company.
  • Kuzco: Cheer up.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: Mickey Mouse has work for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Jake today.
  • Kuzco: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Kuzco happily.
  • Kuzco: A harbor. The seaside. Children! That will be lovely!
  • Ringo Starr: Jake was on his way to the harbor with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbor warf firm and safe.
  • Kuzco: Hello, Jake.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: This is Phineas, a friend of mine. He's a kid.
  • Ringo Starr: Jake eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Jake: A what?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Phineas: A kid.
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Phineas.
  • Phineas: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbor, please? Mickey Mouse has a job for me.
  • Jake: Yes, of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Jake. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Phineas's car to Jake's train. And soon, they were ready to start their journey.
  • Phineas: I'm glad Mickey Mouse needs me.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Phineas.
  • Phineas: I don't have enough to do sometimes, you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrap yards, even at harbors.
  • Jake: But you don't run on rails.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Jake.
  • Phineas: I'm a kid. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Phineas.
  • Phineas: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: When they reached the harbor, they found everything in confusion. Pirates have been derailed, blocking the line. And stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Jake's Driver: We must get these pilings past.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jake's driver.
  • Jake's Driver They are essential. Phineas, we need you to drag them around this mess.
  • Phineas: Just the sort of job I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Phineas.
  • Phineas: Now you'll see, Jake. I'll soon show you what traction engines can do.
  • Ringo Starr: Phineas was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains, and towed them into position.
  • Phineas: Who needs rails?
  • Ringo Starr: He muttered cheefully to himself. Later, Jake brought Janna and Hope to visit him. Jake was most impressed.
  • Jake: Now I understand how useful a traction engine can be.
  • Ringo Starr: The coaches were full of children. Phineas gave them rides along the harbor. He liked this best of all.
  • Janna: He's very kind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Janna.
  • Hope: He reminds of Jake.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Hope. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Phineas to go. Jake pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Phineas's eye. Jake pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Trevor happy.
  • Jake: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • Ringo Starr: He promised.
  • Jake: Grimsby will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may need you again at the harbor someday.
  • Phineas: That would be wonderful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Phineas. That evening, Phineas stood remembering his new friend, Jake, the harbor, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

Dipper and The Traffic Light

  • Ringo Starr: Dipper works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get them into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Dipper: Peep peep! Hurry up, Beck, the train's ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Beck thought he was late.
  • Dipper: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Dipper and showed him a train of dirty coal pirates. Beck thought how he can pay Dipper back for teasing him. Next it was Marco's turn.
  • Dipper: Stay in the shed today, Marco. Mickey Mouse will come and see you.
  • Marco: Ah!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Marco.
  • Marco: Mickey Mouse knows I'm a fine kid. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • Ringo Starr: Marco's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Marco's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Marco. You can't stay here all day.
  • Marco: Mickey Mouse told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • Marco: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marco.
  • Marco: Oh. Where's Dipper?
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper had wisely disappeared. When Mickey Mouse came back, he did see Marco and Dipper too. But characters wish he hadn't. One morning, Dipper was careless.
  • Dipper: I say, you characters, I'm to take some pirates to Jake's junction. Mickey Mouse chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful kid.
  • Marco: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Marco. Beck looked across to Marco. They were going to make a plan.
  • Beck: Marco and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then I needn't say that to a really useful kid like you, Dipper.
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper felt flattered.
  • Marco: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Marco.
  • Marco: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Dipper: No thank you, Marco.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dipper.
  • Dipper: I know all about signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper was a little worried.
  • Dipper: I wonder what backing signals are.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Dipper: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed crossly to his pirates and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Dipper: Bother, it's a danger.
  • Ringo Starr: The signal moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Dipper had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Dipper: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing signals.
  • Driver: Come on, Dipper.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Percy: But it's a backing signal.
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper protested and told him about Beck and Marco. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Dipper: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dipper.
  • Dipper: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • Ringo Starr: He was too late. Beck saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Dipper thought they were being very silly.

Randy Takes Charge

  • Dipper: Do you know what?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Dipper.
  • Beck: What?
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Beck.
  • Dipper: Do you know what?
  • Beck: Silly!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Beck.
  • Beck: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Dipper: Mickey Mouse says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger character to help me.
  • Marco: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Marco.
  • Marco: Any character could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • Ringo Starr: Dipper went off to get some coaches.
  • Dipper: That stupid old signal.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Dipper: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little kid and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Mickey: Hello, Dipper.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey: You look tired.
  • Dipper: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my dome or on my feet.
  • Mickey: You look the right way up to me.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Mickey.
  • Mickey: Cheer up. The new character is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Jake and Penn will help.
  • Dipper: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: The new character arrived.
  • Mickey: What's your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Mickey.
  • Randy: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Randy. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Randy better than Montague.
  • Mickey: Good. Randy it shall be. Here, Dipper, show Randy around.
  • Ringo Starr: The two characters went off together. Soon they were very busy. Marco, Beck and Brad watched Randy quietly doing his work.
  • Brad: He seems a simple sort of character.
  • Marco: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • Brad, Beck and Marco: (quacking) Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Smoke billowed everywhere. Dipper was cross, but Randy took no notice.
  • Randy: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Dipper?
  • Dipper: Yes they do.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Dipper.
  • Randy: Right.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Randy.
  • Randy: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispered something.
  • Randy: We'll do it later.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • Brad, Beck and Marco: Wheesh! (snorting)
  • Mickey: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: He said and hurried to the yard. Randy and Dipper calmly sat on the points outside the shed, refusing to let the characters in. Beck, Marco and Brad were furious.
  • Mickey: Stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Bellowed Mickey.
  • Beck: They won't let us in!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Beck.
  • Mickey: Randy, explain this behavior.
  • Randy: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a great western character. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Percy and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, characters that we only take orders from you.
  • (Engines whistling)
  • Mickey: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped Mickey.
  • Mickey: Dipper and Randy, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • Ringo Starr: Beck, Brad and Marco sniggered.
  • Mickey: As for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Thundered Mickey.
  • Mickey: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Randy is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • Ringo Starr: After Dipper went away, Randy was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!
