Medicine

  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Shaggy was feeling very sorry for himself. Sometimes he can pull trains, but sometimes he felt he had no strength at all.
  • Shaggy: I suffer dreadfully and no one cares.
  • Al: Rubbish, Shaggy!
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Al.
  • Al: You don't work hard enough!
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny spoke to him too.
  • Bugs: You're too expensive, Shaggy. You have lots of new parts and new paint too, but they've done you no good. If we can't make you better, we must get another character instead of you.
  • Ringo Starr: This made Shaggy, his driver and fireman very sad. Bugs Bunny was waiting when Shaggy came to the platform. He had taken off his hat and coat and put on overalls. Shaggy managed to start but his fireman was not satisfied.
  • Fireman: Shaggy is a bad steamer.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Bugs Bunny.
  • Fireman: I built up his fire, but it doesn't give enough heat.
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy tried very hard, but it was no good. He didn't have enough steam, and came to a stop outside Scott's station.
  • Shaggy: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: I shall have to go away! Oh dear, oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: All he could do is to go slowly onto a siding, and Scott took charge of the train. Bugs Bunny and the Fireman went on discussing Shaggy's troubles.
  • Bugs: What do you think is wrong, fireman?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Bugs Bunny.
  • Fireman: Excuse me, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: He answered.
  • Fireman: But the fact is the medicine was wrong. We've had a poor lot lately, and today's it's worse. The other characters can manage. They had big fireboxes. Shaggy's is small and can't make the heat. With Welsh medicine, he'd be a different character.
  • Bugs: It's expensive.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: But Shaggy must have a fair chance. Al shall go and fetch them.
  • Ringo Starr: When the Welsh medicine came, Shaggy's Driver and Fireman were excited.
  • Fireman: Now we'll show 'em, Shaggy old fellow.
  • Ringo Starr: They carefully made his fire, putting large lumps of coal like a wall round the outside, then the glowing middle part was covered in smaller lumps.
  • Shaggy: You're spoiling my fire.
  • Ringo Starr: Complained Shaggy.
  • Fireman: Wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the fireman.
  • Fireman: We'll have a roaring fire just when we wanted.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman was right. When Shaggy reach the platform, the water was boiling nicely, and he had to let off steam.
  • Bugs: How are you, Shaggy?
  • Shaggy: Peep, peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: I feel fine!
  • Bugs: Have you a good fire, driver?
  • Driver: Never better, sir, and plenty of steam.
  • Bugs: No record breaking.
  • Ringo Starr: Warned Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: Don't push him too hard.
  • Driver: Shaggy won't need pushing, sir. I'll have to hold him back.
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy had a lovely day. He had never felt so well of his life. He wanted to go fast, but his driver wouldn't let him.
  • Driver: Steady old fellow.
  • Ringo Starr: He would say.
  • Driver: There's plenty of time.
  • Ringo Starr: They arrived early at the station. Ash puffed in.
  • Shaggy: Where have you been, lazybones?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: Oh, I can't wait for dawdling trainers like you. Goodbye.
  • Ash: Whoosh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash to Bailey and Marina.
  • Ash: Have you ever seen anything like it?
  • Ringo Starr: Both Bailey and Marina agreed that they never had.

The Flying Kipper

  • Ringo Starr: One winter evening, Shaggy's driver said...
  • Driver: We'll be out early tomorrow. We've got to take the Flying Kipper. Don't tell Terry, but I think if we pull the Kipper nicely, Bugs Bunny will let us pull the express. The special medicine they gave you is working well.
  • Shaggy: Hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: That will be lovely.
  • Ringo Starr: All kinds of ships use the harbour at the big station by the sea. There are passenger ships, cargo ships and fishing boats also come here. They unload their fish on the key. Some of them goes the shops in the town, and the rest in a special train to other places far away. This is the train the railwaymen called the Flying Kipper. Shaggy was ready at 5:00. There was snow and frost. Men hustled and shouted loading up the vanes with the crates of fish. The last door banged, the guard showed his green lamp, and the Flying Kipper was ready to go.
  • Shaggy: Come on, come on, don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Shaggy to the vans. The vans shuttered and groaned.
  • Vans: Trock-trock, trock-trick, all right, all right!
  • Shaggy: That is better, that is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Shaggy. Clouds of smoke and steam poured from his funnel into the cold air, and the fire's light shown brightly.
  • Shaggy: Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Panted Shaggy. They were going well. The light grew better, signal light shown green as they passed. Then, a yellow signal appeard ahead. His driver prepared to stop, but the home signal was down.
  • Driver: All clear, Shaggy. Away we go.
  • Ringo Starr: They couldn't know the switches from the main line to a siding were frozen, and a home signal should have been set a danger, but snow had forced it down. A goods train was waited in a siding to let the Flying Kipper past, and a Driver and Fireman were drinking cocoa in the break van.
  • Guard: The Kipper is due.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the guard.
  • Fireman: Who cares?
  • Ringo Starr: Said the Fireman.
  • Fireman: This is good cocoa.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver got up.
  • Driver: Come on, fireman, back to our engine.
  • Ringo Starr: They got out just in time.
  • (Shaggy crashes into the break van and comes off the rails completely)
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy's driver and fireman had jumped clear before the crash, but Shaggy lay dazed and surprised. Bugs Bunny came to see him.
  • Shaggy: The signal was down, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Shaggy.
  • Bugs: Cheer up, Shaggy. It wasn't your fault. Ice and snow cause the accident. I'm sending you to Crewe, a fine place for sick characters. They'll give you your new shape and a larger firebox. You'll feel a different character, and won't need special medicine anymore. Won't that be nice?
  • Shaggy: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Shaggy doubtfully. Shaggy liked being a Crewe, but was glad to come home. A crowd of people waited to see him arrive in his new shape. He looked so splendid and strong that they gave him three cheers.
  • Shaggy: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • Shaggy: Thank you very much!
  • Ringo Starr: I'm sorry to say that a lot of little children were often late for school, because they waited to see Shaggy go by. They often see him pulling the express. He does it so well that Terry is jealous. But that's another story.

Yelling and Sneezes

  • Ringo Starr: Terry was cross.
  • Terry: Why should Shaggy have a new shape?
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Terry: A shape good enough for me is good enough for him. He goes gallivanting off, leaving us to do his work, and comes back saying how happy he feels. It's disgraceful. And there's another thing: Shaggy whistles too much. No respectable character ever whistles loudly at stations. It isn't wrong, but we just don't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: Poor Shaggy didn't feel happy anymore.
  • Omi: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Omi.
  • Omi: I'm glad you're home again. I like your whistling.
  • Terry: Goodbye, Shaggy.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Terry.
  • Terry: We're glad to have you with us again. But remember what I said.
  • Ringo Starr: Later, Shaggy stopped at Scott's station.
  • Scott: Hello, Shaggy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: You look splendid. I was pleased to hear your happy whistle yesterday.
  • Shaggy: Thank you, Scott.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Shaggy.
  • (We hear a screeching noise)
  • Shaggy: Shh, shh. Can you hear something?
  • Scott: It sounds like Terry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Scott: And it ought to be Terry. But Terry never whistles like that.
  • Ringo Starr: It was Terry. He came rushing down the hill of a tremendous rate. He didn't look at Shaggy and he didn't look at Scott. He screamed straight through the station and disappeared.
  • Scott: Well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Scott.
  • Shaggy: It isn't wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Shaggy.
  • Shaggy: But we just don't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: And he told Scott what Terry had said. Meanwhile, Terry screeched along the line. The noise was awful. At the station, everyone held their ears. Bugs Bunny held his ears too.
  • Bugs: Take him away!
  • Ringo Starr: He bellowed.
  • Bugs: And stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Terry puffed sadly away. But he wouldn't stop whistling until two fitters climbed up and knocked his whistle valve in place. That night, Terry slunked into the shed. He was glad it was empty.
  • Shaggy: It isn't wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Murmured Shaggy to no one in particular.
  • Shaggy: But we just don't do it.
  • Ringo Starr: No one mentioned whistles. Next morning, Shaggy was enjoying himself enormously.
  • Shaggy: I feel so well, I feel so well.
  • Ringo Starr: He sang.
  • Coaches: Trickety-trock, trickety-trock.
  • Ringo Starr: Hummed his coaches. Then he saw some boys on a bridge.
  • Shaggy: Peep-peep. Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • (The boys smash the coaches' windows with stones)
  • Shaggy: Ohh.
  • Ringo Starr: He called. The boys didn't wave and take his number. They thought it fun to drop stones on him instead.
  • Coaches: They've broken our glass, they've broken our glass.
  • Ringo Starr: Sobbed the coaches. The passengers weren't hurt, but they were cross.
  • Passengers: Call the police!
  • Shaggy's Driver: No.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Leave it to Shaggy and me.
  • Passengers: What will you do?
  • Ringo Starr: They asked.
  • Passengers: Can you keep a secret?
  • Shaggy: Yes, yes.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Well then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Shaggy is going to sneeze at those boys.
  • Ringo Starr: Lots of people were at the station just before the bridge. They wanted to see what would happen.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Shaggy has plenty of ashes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Please keep all windows shut until we haved passed the bridge. Shaggy's is excited as we are. Aren't you, old fellow?
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy felt more stuffed up than excitement. Soon, they could see the boys. And they all had stones.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Are you ready, Shaggy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Shaggy's Driver: Sneeze hard when I tell you. Now.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Shaggy: Ah-choo!
  • (Shaggy sneezes at the boys and they were covered in ashes)
  • Shaggy's Driver: Well done, Shaggy.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed his driver. Shaggy went home, very pleased with himself. He had told Terry and silly boys a lesson with a whistle and a sneeze.

Jackie and The Stout Bunny

  • Ringo Starr: Jackie is the leader of the J-Team. He wears a blue shirt and brown pants and doesn't look like a character at all. He takes Beedrill from farms and villages to the main line and is cheerful to everyone he meets. He has a coach called Kitana who has seen better days.
  • Kitana: It's not fair at all.
  • Ringo Starr: She grumbles remembering she used to be full and nine Beedrill would rattle behind her. Now there were only 3 or four for the farms and factories send their goods mostly by truck. Jackie is always careful. The cars, buses and lorries often had accidents. Jackie hasn't had an accident for years. But the buses are crowded and Kitana is empty. A lady and a stout bunny stood on Jackie's platform. He was of course Bugs Bunny. But Jackie didn't noticed yet.
  • Buster and Babs: Come on, father.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the children.
  • Buster and Babs: Do look at this character.
  • Bugs: That's a J-Team, Buster.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs.
  • Babs: Is it electric?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Babs.
  • Jackie: Whoosh!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Jackie.
  • Buster: Shh, shh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Buster.
  • Buster: You've offended him.
  • Babs: But J-Teams are electric, aren't they?
  • Bugs: They are mostly, and this is a J-Team.
  • Buster and Babs: May we go in it, father, please?
  • Bugs: Stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs to the guard. They all scrambled into Kitana.
  • Kitana: Hip-hip hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Chanted Kitana. But Jackie didn't sing.
  • Jackie: Electric indeed! Electric indeed!
  • Ringo Starr: He snorted. He was very hurt.
  • Bugs: What is your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Bugs.
  • Jackie: Jackie, sir.
  • Bugs: Thank you, Jackie, for a very nice ride.
  • Jackie: Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jackie. He felt better now.
  • Jackie: This gentleman...
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Jackie: ...is a gentleman who knows how to speak to characters.
  • Ringo Starr: The children came every day for two weeks. Sometimes they rode with the guard, sometimes in empty Beedrill. On the last day of all the driver invited them into his cab. All were sorry when they had to go away and Steven and his family thanked everyone.
  • Jackie: Come again soon.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Jackie.
  • Buster and Babs: We will, we will.
  • Ringo Starr: Called the children. And they waved till Jackie was out of sight. The months passed. Jackie had few cars and fewer passengers.
  • Driver: Our last day, Jackie.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver one morning.
  • Driver: The manager says we must close tomorrow.
  • Ringo Starr: That day, everyone will have a chance of a last ride. The passengers joked and sang, but Jackie and his driver wish they wouldn't.
  • Passengers: Goodbye, Jackie.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the passengers afterwards.
  • Passengers: We are sorry your line was closing down.
  • Jackie: So am I.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed Jackie.
  • Jackie: Nobody wants me.
  • Ringo Starr: Jackie thought and went unhappily to sleep. Next morning, the shed was flung open and old Jackie woke with a start to his driver waving a piece of paper at him.
  • Driver: Wake up, Jackie!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted.
  • Driver: And listen to this! It's a letter from the stout gentleman!
  • Ringo Starr: Jackie listened and... But I musn't tell you anymore, or I'll shall spoil the next story.

Ash In Trouble

  • Ringo Starr: There's a line to the academy at the end of Ash's route. It goes to some distance along the road. Ash was very careful to whistle here in case anyone was coming. Early one morning, a large policeman was sitting close to the line. Ash liked policemen. He had been a great friend of the officer who had just retired.
  • Ash: Peep! Peep!
  • Ringo Starr: He whistled.
  • Ash: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash expected that the new officer would be friendly too. But was sorry to see that he didn't look friendly at all. He was red in the face and very cross.
  • Policeman: Disgraceful!
  • Ringo Starr: He spluttered.
  • Policeman: I didn't sleep a wink last night. It was so quiet, and now trainers come whistling suddenly behind me.
  • Ash: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I only said good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: The policeman pointed to Ash.
  • Policeman: Where's your cowcatchers?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Ash: But I don't catch cows, sir.
  • Policeman: Don't be funny.
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped the policeman. He looked at Ash's shoes.
  • Policeman: No side plates either.
  • Ringo Starr: And he wrote in his notebook.
  • Policeman: Trainers goin on public roads must have their shoes covered and a cowcatcher in front to protect people and animals from being dragged under the wheels if they stray under the line. You haven't so you are dangerous.
  • Driver: Rubbish.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash's driver.
  • Driver: We've been along here hundreds of times and never had an accident.
  • Policeman: That makes it worse.
  • Ringo Starr: The policeman answered. He wrote Regular Law Breaker in his book. Ash puffed sadly away. Bugs Bunny was having breakfast he was eating toast and marmalade. The butler came in.
  • Butler: Excuse me, sir, you're wanted on the telephone.
  • Bugs: Bother that telephone!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • (Phone chattering)
  • Bugs: I'm sorry, my dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to his wife.
  • Steven: Ash is in trouble with the police and I must go at once.
  • Ringo Starr: At the station, Ash's driver told Bugs Bunny what had happened.
  • Bugs: Dangerous to the public indeed. We'll see about that.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny spoke to the policeman. But however much he argued with him it was no good.
  • Policeman: The law is the law.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Policeman: And we can't change it.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny felt exhausted.
  • Bugs: I'm sorry, driver.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Bugs: It's no use arguing with the policeman. We will have to make those cowcatcher things for Ash I suppose.
  • Ash: Everyone will laugh, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: They say I look like a J-Team.
  • Ringo Starr: Bugs Bunny stared, then he laughed.
  • Bugs: Well done, Ash. Why didn't I think of it before. We want a J-Team. When I was on my holiday, I met a nice man called Jackie. He takes Beedrill from the farms but the lorries have taken most of his work and he needs a change. He has a blue shirt and brown pants. I'll write to this superintedant at once.
  • Ringo Starr: A few days later, Jackie arrived.
  • Bugs: That's a good man.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: I see you brought Princess Kitana.
  • Jackie: You don't mind, do you, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Jackie.
  • Jackie: The stationmaster wanted to use her as a hen house, and that would never do.
  • Bugs: No indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: We couldn't allow that.
  • Ringo Starr: Jackie made the silly Beedrill even better than Ash did.
  • Policeman: Oi you!
  • Ringo Starr: At first, Ash was jealous, but he was so pleased when Jackie rang his bell and frightened the policeman, they've been firmed friends ever since.

Dirty Objects

  • Ringo Starr: Jackie and Kitana are enjoying their new job on the land of Netflix, but they do look old fashioned and need new paint. Al was very rude whenever he saw them.
  • Al: Yech! What dirty objects!
  • Ringo Starr: He would say. At last, Jackie lost patience.
  • Jackie: Al?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Jackie: Why are you red?
  • Al: I am a splendid boy.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Al.
  • Al: Ready for anything. You never see my paint dirty.
  • Jackie: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jackie earnestly.
  • Jackie: That's why you once needed bootlaces to be ready I suppose.
  • Ringo Starr: Al went redder than ever and snorted off. It was such an insult to be remind how the time the bootlace have been use to mend a hole in his coaches. At the end of the line, Al left his coaches and got out to his next train. It was a slow goods, stopping at every station to pick up and set down Beedrill, Al hated slow good trains.
  • Al: Dirty Beedrill from dirty sidings! Yech!
  • Ringo Starr: Starting an only a few, he picked up more and more Beedrill at each station till he had a long train. At first, the Beedrill behaved well, but Al bumped them so crossly that they were determined to get back at him. Presently, they approached the top of Terry's Hill. Heavy good trains halt here to set the brakes. Al had had an accident with Beedrill before and should have remembered this.
  • Driver: Wait, Al, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver, but Al wouldn't wait. He was too busy thinking what he would say to Jackie when they next met. The Beedrill's chance had come.
  • Beedrill: Hurrah! Hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed, and banging their buffers they pushed him down the hill.
  • Beedrill: On, on, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Yelled the Beedrill.
  • Al: I've got to stop, I've got to stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Al. Through the station they thundered, disaster lay ahead.
  • (Al crashes into the tar wagons)
  • Ringo Starr: Something sticky splashed all over Al. He had run into two tar wagons, and was black from smokebox to cab. He was more dirty than hurt, but the tar wagons and some cars were all to pieces. Jackie and Omi were sent to help and came as quickly as they could.
  • Jackie: Look here, Omi!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained Jackie.
  • Jackie: Whatever is that dirty object?
  • Omi: That's Al, didn't you know?
  • Jackie: It's Al's shape.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jackie.
  • Jackie: But Al is a splendid boy and you'll never see his paint dirty.
  • Ringo Starr: Al pretended he hadn't heard. Jackie and Omi cleared away the unhurt Beedrill and help Al home. Bugs Bunny met them.
  • Bugs: Well done, Omi and Jackie.
  • Ringo Starr: He turned to Al.
  • Bugs: Fancy letting your Beedrill run away. I am surprised. You're not fit to be seen. You must be cleaned at once. Jackie shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Jackie: Please sir, can Kitana have one too?
  • Ringo Starr: Said Jackie.
  • Bugs: Certainly, Jackie.
  • Jackie: Oh thank you, sir. She will pleased.
  • Ringo Starr: All Al could do as watch Jackie as he ran off happily with the news.

Off The Road

  • Ringo Starr: Terry was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought...
  • Terry: It's really tiring to be such a large and splendid character, one does have to keep up appearance is so.
  • Shaggy: Peep peep peep peep! Hello, fat face!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Shaggy,
  • Terry: What cheek!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Terry.
  • Terry: That Shaggy is too big for his feet. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me who has never had an accident.
  • Omi: Aren't jammed whistles and burst safety valves accidents?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Omi innocently.
  • Terry: No indeed. High spirits. Might happen to any character. But to come off the road like Shaggy did. Well, I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?
  • Ringo Starr: Then it was Shaggy's turn to take the express. Terry watch him getting ready.
  • Terry: Be careful, Shaggy. You're not pulling the flying kipper now. Mind you keep on the rails today.
  • Ringo Starr: Shaggy went off in a huff, and Terry yawned and went to sleep. But not for long.
  • Driver: Wake up, Terry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A special train's coming and we're to pull it.
  • Terry: Is it coaches or Beedrill?
  • Driver: Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Terry: Beedrill.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Puh.
  • Ringo Starr: Terry's fire was slow to start, so Scott had to push Terry to the turntable to get him facing the right way.
  • Terry: I won't go, I won't go!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Terry.
  • Scott: Don't be silly, don't be silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Scott. At last, Terry was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his fire. It was now burning nicely and making steam. Terry was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was halfway round.
  • Terry: I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slithered into the ditch.
  • Terry: Oosh!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed.
  • Terry: Get me out, get me out!
  • Driver: Not a hope.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver and fireman.
  • Fireman: You're stuck, you silly great character. Don't you understand that?
  • Ringo Starr: They telephoned Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: So Terry didn't want to take the special train and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Scott to take it please. And Terry? Oh, leave him where his is. We haven't time to bother with him now.
  • Ringo Starr: On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering.
  • Boy 1: Coo, doesn't he look silly?
  • Boy 2: They'll never get him out.
  • Ringo Starr: They began to sing.
  • Boys: Silly old Terry fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, silly old Terry fell in a ditch all in the Monday morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Terry layed in the ditch all day.
  • Terry: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Terry: I shall never get out.
  • Ringo Starr: But that evening, they lifted Terry and made a rope of sleepers under his feet to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and Al and Shaggy pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Terry crawled home, a sadder and wiser character.

Down The Hole

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Ash was at the academy when Terry shuffled in with some Beedrill.
  • Ash: Phew!
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked Ash.
  • Ash: What a funny smell. Can you smell a smell?
  • Bailey: I can't smell a smell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bailey.
  • Ash: A funny musty sort of smell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Terry: No one noticed until you did.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Terry.
  • Terry: It must be yours.
  • Ringo Starr: Not long ago, he had fallen into a dirty ditch. Ash enjoyed teasing him about it.
  • Ash: Bailey, Marina, do you know what I think it is? It's ditchwater.
  • Ringo Starr: Before Terry could answer, Ash puffed away. Bailey and Marina could hardly believe their ears.
  • Bailey: He's dreadfully rude I feel quite ashamed.
  • Marina: I feel quite ashamed he's dreadfully rude.
  • Ringo Starr: And to Ash they said.
  • Bailey and Marina: You musn't be rude, you make us ashamed.
  • Ringo Starr: But Ash didn't care a bit.
  • Ash: That was funny, that was funny.
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled. He felt very pleased with himself. Bailey and Marina were deeply shocked. They have great respect for Terry McGinnis. Ash left the coaches at the station and went off to a mine for some Beedrill. Long ago, miners digging there have made tunnels under the ground. Their rooves are strong enough to hold up cars but not the weight of characters. A large notice warns them not to enter the area: Danger! Characters must not pass this board.
  • Ash: Silly old board.
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Ash. He had often tried to pass it but had never suceeded. But this morning he had made a plan. The fireman went to throw the points.
  • Ash: Now for my plan!
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Ash. Bumping the Beedrill fiercely he jerked his driver off the footplate and followed them into the siding.
  • Driver: Come back!
  • Ringo Starr: Yelled his driver.
  • (A loud splash is heard as Ash falls to the mine)
  • Ash: Fire and smoke!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: I'm sunk.
  • Ringo Starr: And he was.
  • Ash: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Ash: I am a silly trainer.
  • Bugs: And a very naughty one, too. I saw you!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Ash: Please let me out. I wont be naughty again.
  • Bugs: I'm not sure. We can't lift you out with the cranes. The ground's not firm enough. Hmm, let me see. I wonder if Terry could pull you out.
  • Ash: Yes sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash. But he didn't want to meet Terry just yet.
  • Terry: Down the mine is he? Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Terry.
  • Terry: What a joke! Boop boop! Little Ash, we'll have your out in a couple of puffs.
  • Ringo Starr: Strong cables were fastened between the two characters.
  • Bugs: Are you ready? Heave!
  • Ringo Starr: It was a lot harden than they all thought. But at last Ash was free.
  • Ash: I'm sorry I was cheeky.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Terry: That's all right, Ash. You made me laugh.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Terry.
  • Terry: I'm in disgrace.
  • Ash: So am I.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Terry: Why so you are Ash. Shall we form an alliance? You help me and I help you.
  • Ash: Right you are.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Ash.
  • Terry: Good. That's settled.
  • Ringo Starr: Rumbled Terry. And buffer to buffer the allies puffed home.

Ash's Christmas Party

  • Ringo Starr: It was Christmas on the land of Netflix. All the characters were working hard. Ash and Jackie were busy carrying people and parcels up and down the branch line. Everyone was happy. Only the coaches Bailey and Marina were complaining.
  • Bailey and Marina: It's always the same before Christmas.
  • Ringo Starr: They groaned.
  • Bailey and Marina: We feel so full, we feel so full.
  • Ash: Oh, come on!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: Where's your festive spirit? Christmas day is almost here.
  • Ringo Starr: By the side of the track was a little cottage with a familiar figure waving to them.
  • Ash: It's Nora Shepard!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Ash.
  • Ash: Peep, peep! Happy Christmas!
  • Ringo Starr: Ash always felt better for seeing her.
  • Ash: Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without Nora.
  • Ringo Starr: When work was over, Ash went to see the other characters. All their coats had been polished.
  • Terry: Huh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Terry.
  • Terry: Just look at us. Your driver will have to work fast to get you as smart as us.
  • Ash: Never mind that.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Ash.
  • Ash: I've something important to say. Do you realize it's been a whole year since Nora Shepard saved us from a nasty accident. You remember when she was ill in bed and...
  • Scott: Yes of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Interrupted Scott.
  • Scott: You told us how she waved her red dressing gown out of her window to warn you about a landslide ahead.
  • Omi: And you and Jackie gave her presents.
  • Ringo Starr: Omi joined in.
  • Omi: And Bugs Bunny sent her to Bournemouth to get better.
  • Al and Shaggy: But...
  • Ringo Starr: Said Al and Shaggy together.
  • Al and Shaggy: The rest of us have never thanked her properly.
  • Ash: Exactly.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: So now I think we should all give her a special Christmas party.
  • Ringo Starr: Everyone was getting very excited. The drivers felt sure that Bugs Bunny will agree as indeed he did. The characters were all busy making plans, when silence fell. Bugs Bunny had bad news.
  • Bugs: The weather's changed badly. Nora Shepard is snowed up. Jackie says he'll help to rescue her. You must help too, Ash. There's no party unless you do.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash hated snow, but he said bravely.
  • Ash: I'll try, sir. We must rescue her, we must.
  • Bugs: There's a good boy. You and Jackie will manage splendidly.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash charged the snowdrifts fiercely. Sometimes he swept them aside, sometimes they stuck fast and the men had to loosen them. But at the cutting near the cottage, they could go no further.
  • Ash's Fireman: Look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Ash's fireman.
  • Ash: Peep, peep! Here we are.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Ash. An answering wave came from an upstairs window. Then they heard a familiar sound.
  • Ash: That's Freakazoid.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ash.
  • Ash: He's come to help too.
  • Ringo Starr: Sure enough, Freakazoid had a snowplough and was working hard to clear a patch to the railroad line to safety. At long last, the rescue was complete. Alex took the tired workmen home. Freakazoid said goodbye to Nora Shepard and promised to take care of her cottage as he watched them all set off. The characters made good time. No more snow had fallen, but the yard was dark. Ash's heart sank. Suddenly, all the lights went on. What a marvelous site awaited Nora Shepard.
  • Bugs: Well done!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Bugs Bunny.
  • Bugs: I'm really proud of you all.
  • Ringo Starr: Nora especially thanked the smaller characters.
  • Nora: Ash and Jackie are old friends.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Nora: And now Omi, you are my friend too.
  • Ringo Starr: Omi was very pleased.
  • Omi: Three cheers for Nora Shepard!
  • Ringo Starr: He called.
  • Omi: Peep, peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: They all whistled.
  • Characters: (singing) We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
  • Ringo Starr: Ash Ketchum and his friends thought it was the best Christmas ever and Nora Shepard could think of nowhere she would rather live than here with them on the land of Netflix.
