Ash Gets Tricked

  • Ringo Starr: Ash is a Pokemon Trainer, who lives in a big university on the land of Cartoons. He's a cheeky little trainer with black and white shoes, a red cap, a black hair and blue jeans. He's a fussy little character too. Always pulling coaches about ready for the big characters can take on long journeys. And when trains come in, he pulls the empty coaches away so that the big characters can go on rest. Ash thinks no character works has hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Scott the biggest and proudest character of all. Ash likes to tease Scott with his whistle.
  • Ash: Wake up, lazybones. Why don't you work hard like me?
  • Ringo Starr: One day after pulling the big express, Scott had arrived back on the sidings very tired. He was just going to sleep when Ash came up in his cheeky way.
  • Ash: Wake up, lazybones. Do some hard work for a change. You can't catch me!
  • Ringo Starr: And off Ash ran laughing. Instead of going to sleep again, Scott thought how he can back at Ash. One morning, Ash wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His fire went out and there was not enough steam. It was nearly time for the express. People are waiting, but the coaches weren't ready. At last, Ash started.
  • Ash: Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: He yawned. He fussed into the station where Scott was waiting.
  • Scott: Hurry up, you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Ash: Hurry yourself.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash. Scott the proud character began making his plan to teach Ash a lesson for teasing him. Almost before the coaches had stopped moving, Scott reversed quickly and was coupled to the train.
  • Scott: Get in quickly, please!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled. Ash usually pushed behind the big trains to help them start, but he was always uncoupled first. This time, Scott start so quickly they forgot to uncouple Ash. Scott's chance had come.
  • Scott: Come on, come on!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Scott to the coaches. The train went faster and faster. Too fast for Ash, he wanted to stop, but he couldn't.
  • Ash: Peep peep! Stop, stop!
  • Scott: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Scott.
  • Coaches: You can't get away, you can't get away!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the coaches. Poor Ash was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath and his feet hurt him, but he had to go on.
  • Ash: I shall never be the same again.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought sadly.
  • Ash: My wheels will be quite worn out.
  • Ringo Starr: At last, they stopped at the station. Ash was uncoupled and he felt very silly and exhausted. Next he went on to the turntable thinking of everyone laughing at him. And then he ran on to a siding out of the way.
  • Scott: Well, little Ash.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Scott.
  • Scott: Now you know what hard work means, don't you?
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Ash couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest and had a long long drink.
  • Ash: Maybe I don't have to tease Scott to feel important.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash thought to himself. And he puffed slowly home.

Kevin Helps Out

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Kevin was in the house where he lived with the other characters. They were all bigger than Kevin and boasted about it.
  • Scott: The driver won't choose you again.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: He wants strong characters like us.
  • Ringo Starr: But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Kevin.
  • Driver: Would you like to come out today?
  • Kevin: Oh yes, please.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin. So they lit his fire, made lots of steam and Kevin puff away. The other characters were very cross of being left behind. Kevin worked hard all day. The coaches thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased.
  • Kevin: I'm going out again tomorrow.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin told the other characters that night.
  • Kevin: What do you think at that?
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy that he fell asleep at once. Next morning, Kevin woke up to find nothing had change. Scott was still boasting.
  • Scott: You watch me, little Kevin, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you. Goodbye, little Kevin. Look out for me this afternoon.
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin went off to do some shunting. He like shunting. It was fun playing with Beedrill. He would come out quietly and gave them a push. Then he would stop, and the silly Beedrill will go bump into the each other.
  • Beedrill: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: They cried.
  • Beedrill: Whatever is happening?
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin played till there were no more Beedrill. Then he stopped to rest. Presently, he heard a whistle. Scott was very cross. Instead of pulling shiny new coaches, he was pulling a very dirty freight train.
  • Scott: A freight train, a freight train, a freight train!
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Scott: The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin laughed and went to find some more Beedrill. Then, there was trouble.
  • Porter: Scott can't get up the hill.
  • Ringo Starr: The porter called to Kevin's Driver.
  • Porter: Will you take Kevin and push him please?
  • Ringo Starr: They found Scott halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severly.
  • Driver: You're not trying.
  • Terry: I can't do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: The noisy Beedrill hold a character back so!
  • Ringo Starr: Kevin's driver came up.
  • Driver: We've come to push.
  • Terry: No use at all!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Driver: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Kevin's driver. They brought the train back to the bottom of the hill.
  • Kevin: I'm ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kevin.
  • Scott: No good.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Scott. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.
  • Scott: I can't do it, I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Scott.
  • Kevin: I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Kevin. Kevin pushed and puffed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Scott found himself at the top of the hill.
  • Scott: I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!
  • Ringo Starr: He said proudly. He forgot all about kind Kevin and didn't say thank you. Kevin was left out of breath and far behind, but he was happy because he had been so helpful. At the next station, he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink and the driver said.
  • Driver: I'll get out my paint tomorrow, and give you your beautiful coat of blue with red stripes, then you'll be the smartest character in the shed.

Come Out Tai

  • Ringo Starr: Once a character attached to some Arcanine was afraid of a few drops of rain. It went into a tunnel and squeaked through its head and wouldn't come out again. The character's name is Tai. His driver and fireman argued with him, but he would not move.
  • Tai: The rain would spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. The conductor blew his whistle till he had no more breath, and waved his flag till his arms ached, but Tai still stayed in the tunnel and blew steam at him.
  • Tai: I'm not going to spoil my lovely green paint and red stripes for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Then, along came Bugs Bunny, the bunny of charge of all the characters on the land of YTV.
  • Bugs: We will pull you out.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs. But Tai only blew steam at him. Everyone pulled except Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Because... (clears his throat)
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: doctor has forbidden me to pull.
  • Ringo Starr: But still, Tai stayed in the tunnel. Then, they tried pushing from the other end. Bugs said...
  • Bugs: One, two, three, push!
  • Ringo Starr: ...but he didn't help.
  • Bugs: (clears his throat) My doctor has forbbiden me to push.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. They pushed, and pushed, and pushed, but still, Shaggy stayed in the tunnel. At last, Ash came along. The conductor waved his red flag and stopped him. Everyone argued with Tai.
  • Everyone: Look, it has stopped raining.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Tai: Yes, but it will began again soon.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Tai.
  • Tai: And what will become with green paint with red stripes then?
  • Ringo Starr: Ash pushed and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could, but still Tai stayed in the tunnel. Eventually, even Bugs Bunny gave up.
  • Bugs: We shall take away your rails...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: ...and leave you here until you're ready to come out of the tunnel.
  • Ringo Starr: They took up the old rails, and built a wall in front of Tai, so the other characters wouldn't bump into him. All Tai could do was to watch the trains rushing through the other tunnel. He was very sad, because he thought no one would see his lovely green paint and red stripes again. As time went on, Kevin and Scott would often pass by. Kevin would say...
  • Kevin: Peep, peep! Hello!
  • Ringo Starr: And Scott would say...
  • Scott: Boop, boop, boop! Serves you right!
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Tai had no steam to answer. His fire had gone out. Soot and dirt from the tunnel had spoilt his lovely green paint with red stripes anyway. How long do you think Tai would stay in the tunnel before he overcomes his fear of the rain, but then decides to journey out again?
