Narrator: "The toys were busy clearing their roads of leaves and broken branches.
Rex and Slinky often worked together. One day, Slinky helped Rex to a water fountain.
Rex felt much better after his long drink, but the mutant toys were bored.
Mutant Toys: "Let's break away!"
Narrator: "Their loads were heavy, and the chains old. One snapped!"
Mutant Toys: "Faster! Faster!"
Narrator: "Shouted the mutant toys. A sign read 'Slow steep bends and ravine ahead', but the silly mutant toys never saw it.
Then, it was too late.
Rex arrived at the scene of the disaster. His driver sighed."
Rex's Driver: "This was our fault; we didn't secure them properly. We'll have to get help to pull them up.
Hoity Toity will be very annoyed."
Narrator: "And he was."
Hoity Toity: "You will work in the yards until I can trust you again."
Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head was delighted with Rex's dilemma."
Mr. Potato Head: "Fancy not securing your mutant toys on a hill. They'll come back to spook you and your special hat. Whoo!"
Slinky: "And who's to say you're not afraid of ghosts?"
Narrator: "Snapped Slinky."
Mr. Potato Head: "Ghosts? Things that go bump in the night? Rubbish."
Slinky: "Well, I'll tell you a story that will make your hat quiver!"
Narrator: "Slinky Said."
Slinky: "A long time ago, a little toy was returning home. It was a misty moonlit night. Suddenly, the toy lost control and plunged over the side into the swamps below.
He was never found again, but many a workmen will tell you that when the moon is full, they have seen the little toy trying to get home, but he never reaches the other side.
So what do you think of that, Potato Head?"
Mr. Potato Head: "Rubbish!"
Narrator: "Replied Mr. Potato Head."
Slinky: "Never mind him, Rex. He'd be frightened if he really saw a ghost."
Narrator: "This gave Rex's driver an idea."
Rex's Driver: "Let's play a trick on Mr. Potato Head!
Narrator: "The next day, he spoke to Mr. Potato Head's driver and fireman, who agreed.
Mr. Potato Head's Crew: "We'll do it tonight!"
Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head had to bring mutant toys to the slate mines, and then bring mutant toys back.
Mr. Potato Head's driver decided, as part of the plan, to cross the old iron bridge."
Mr. Potato head: "Haunted bridge, rubbish"!
Narrator: "Snorted Mr. Potato Head."
Mr. Potato Head: "It's as tame as a pet rabbit!"
Narrator: "But all the same, he kept thinking about Slinky's story.
When dusk fell, he was keen to leave."
Mr. Potato Head: "If we don't go now, Woody will take my favorite place it the room."
Mr. Potato Head's Driver: "We have to collect our mutant toys first."
Narrator: "His driver replied.
He could see his plan was working, because Mr. Potato Head was nervous.
When night fell, they set off.
The mists were rising around the old iron bridge.
Mr. Potato Head whistled, and the sound echoed everywhere.
Then, ahead, he saw flickering lights. His driver knew they were only insects that shine brightly at night, but to Mr. Potato Head, they looked like a toy!
Next, his driver secretly threw a rock into the ravine below."
Mr. Potato Head: "It's the ghost! Take me back! Take me back, please!"
Narrator: "When Mr. Potato Head reached the safety of his room, he closed his eyes tightly."
Mr. Potato Head's Driver: "Spooked, are you, Potato Head?"
Narrator: "Laughed his driver."
Mr. Potato Head: "No, I'm asleep!"
Narrator: "And Mr. Potato Head refused to open his eyes.
He did though, when he thought his driver wasn't looking, just to make sure that he was still there."
