Narrator: "It was Christmas time in Ponyville, and Hoity Toity's animals were busy. The snow made their journeys difficult. They had to work hard to deliver passengers and goods to their destinations of time. This made the animals feel very reliable.

Trixie pulled into the fitters yard with Spike's snow boots."

Spike: "I don't need those silly old things!"

Narrator: "Huffed Spike."

Trixie: "Stuff and nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said Trixie."

Trixie: "You can't be a reliable dragon if you can't get through the snow."

Narrator: "That made Spike cross."

Spike: "You know I'm reliable. I just don't like my boots.

Trixie is rude!"

Narrator: "Spike chuffed."

Spike: "And these snow boots makes my feet ache!"

Narrator: "Later, Spike saw Hoity Toity talking to Trixie."

Hoity Toity: "The Ponyville Cake Factory is snowed in. Their Christmas cakes must get to the docks before the ship sails for the mainland."

Spike: "Let me do the job."

Hoity Toity: "I need you on your path, Spike. Besides, Trixie knows those roads well. She's very reliable."

Spike: "I'm reliable too!"

Narrator: "Huffed Spike."

Trixie: "Apparently not reliable enough."

Narrator: "Trixie chuffed. Now Spike was crosser still.

The snow was heavy, but Spike arrived at every station right on time.

Trixie was struggling to stay on the road. Her hooves did not like the slippery ice at all.

When Spike arrived at the docks to pick up Featherweight, he was surprised that Trixie had not returned."

Dock Manager: "The ship will miss the tide."

Narrator: "Said the dock manager."

Hoity Toity: "And the children won't have their Christmas cakes. Spike, go and look for Trixie at once."

Spike: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Answered Spike."

Spike: "Perhaps Trixie isn't so reliable after all."

Narrator: "He whispered.

At the cake factory, Trixie's cart was piled high with crates of Christmas cakes."

Trixie: "Hoity Toity's counting on me. I mustn't be late."

Narrator: "She chuffed onto the icy road.

Suddenly, she was on a steep hill. Her drive tried to stop. Trixie slid out of control into a deep snowdrift."


"Poor Trixie.

Spike and Featherweight puffed through the swirling snow. They couldn't see Trixie anywhere.

Soon, they spotted her driver. He was standing by the level crossing."

Trixie's Driver: "Trixie is stuck under the snow."

Narrator: "Her driver explained."

Trixie's Driver: "I need help to dig her out."

Narrator: "Featherweight rescued her in no time."

Spike: "We will have to hurry."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "It wasn't you fault, Trixie, it's the slippery roads."

Narrator: "Trixie felt much better.

Spike chuffed and puffed as fast as he could.

They reached the docks just in time. Hoity Toity was delighted to see the bakery crates, and that Trixie was safe and well."

Hoity Toity: "We'll get you unloaded immediately."

Spike: "Now the children will have their Christmas cakes."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Well done!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Trixie: "Thank you, Spike."

Narrator: "Said Trixie."

Trixie: "You and I are both reliable."

Narrator: "Spike agreed."
