Narrator: "Oswald is a Rabbit who lives in a big house on Disneyland. He's a cheeky little rabbit with two black feets, two black ears, two black hands, and a pair of blue pants.
He's a fussy little rabbit, too, always bringing flowers about ready for the bigger Disney Characters to take on long journeys.
And when Disney characters come in, he brings the flowers back home so that the bigger Disney characters can go and rest.
Oswald thinks no Disney character works as hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Captain Pheobus, the biggest and proudest man of them all.
Oswald likes whistling rudely at him."
Oswald: "Wake up, Lazy Bones, why don't you work hard, like me?"
Narrator: "One day, after taking some flowers on a journey, Pheobus arrived back at the sidings, very tired. He was just going to sleep when Oswald came up in his cheeky way."
Oswald: "Wake up, Lazy Bones, do some hard work for a change! You can't catch me!"
Narrator: "And off he ran, laughing.
Instead of going to sleep again, Pheobus thought how he could get back at Oswald.
One morning, Oswald wouldn't wake up. His animator couldn't make him start. His stamina was low and there was not enough strength. It was nearly time for the express. People were waiting, but the flowers weren't ready.
At last, Oswald started."
Oswald: "Oh dear, oh dear!"
Narrator: "He yawned.
He fussed into the station where Captain Pheobus was waiting."
Captain Pheobus: "Hurry up, you."
Narrator: "Said Captain Pheobus."
Oswald: "Hurry yourself!"
Narrator: "Replied Oswald.
Pheobus Began Making his plan."
Narrator: "Said Pheobus."
Pheobus: "I will."
Narrator: "And almost before the flowers stopped moving, Pheobus reversed quickly and held the first flower's petal."
Pheobus: "Get in quickly, please."
Narrator: "He whistled.
Oswald usually pushed behind the flowers to help them star, but they always let go of him first. This time, Captain Pheobus started so quickly, they forgot to let go of Oswald. Captain Pheobus' chance had come.
Captain Pheobus: "Come on, come on!"
Narrator: "Puffed Captain Pheobus to the flowers.
The line went faster and faster, too fast for Oswald. He wanted to stop, but he couldn't!"
Oswald: "Hey, hey, stop, stop!"
Captain Pheobus: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"
Laughed Captain Pheobus.
Flowers: "You can't get away, you can't get away!"
Narrator: "Laughed the Flowers.
Poor Oswald 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."
Oswald: "I shall never be the same again."
Narrator: "He thought sadly."
Oswald: "My feet will be quite worn out."
Narrator: "At last, they stopped at a station.
Oswald let go, and he felt very silly and exhausted.
Next, he sat on a turntable, thinking of everyone laughing at him.
And then he ran onto a siding, out of the way."
Captain Pheobus: "Well, little Oswald."
Narrator: "Chuckled Captain Pheobus."
Captain Pheobus: "Now you know what hard work means, don't you?"
Narrator: "Poor Oswald couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just drove slowly away to rest, and had a long, long drink.
He went home very slowly, and was careful afterwards never to be cheeky to Pheobus again."
