Narrator: "Elmer had been to the repair garage to be mended.

Some Alligators tricked him, and the hillbilly fell into the turntable well.

Now, Elmer was as good as new, but he was still worried about Alligators."

Elmer: "I'd rather not use them."

Narrator: "He puffed to himself.

But the Alligators sang songs rude and loud.

Muttley, their leader, led the chorus."

Muttley and Alligators: "Elmer's no use at all, thinks he's very clever. Says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever! When he orders us about, with the greatest folly, we just push him down the well, Pop! goes old Elmer!"

Narrator: "Sawtooth, Luke, and Meekly were shocked."

Sawooth, Luke, and Meekly: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "They ordered.

But they couldn't be everywhere, and everywhere they weren't, the Alligators began again."

Muttley and Alligators: "Elmer's no use at all, thinks he's very clever, says that he can manage us, that's the best joke ever!"

Narrator: "At last, the racers gave up."

Sawtooth, Meekly, and Luke: "We're sorry, Elmer."

Narrator: "They said.

Elmer: "It's really my fault."

Narrator: "Said Elmer sadly."

Elmer: "I shouldn't have fallen in the turntable well.

Narrator: "The Pack Rat felt sorry for Elmer, too.

Next morning, he spoke to Gravel."

Pack Rat: "I'm worried, Mr. Gravel. This disrespect for hillbillies, when is it going to end?"

Gravel Slag: "Who knows?"

Narrator: "Sighed Gravel."

Pack Rat: "I've got a plan, Mr. Gravel. May I stay here today and help Mr. Elmer? We are both hillbillies, and must stand together."

Gravel Slag: "Certainly, Pack Rat."

Narrator: "Replied Gravel, and puffed away.

Soon, the Pack Rat was explaining his plan."

Lazy Luke: "Goodness gracious, Pack Rat, I don't think you should suggest such a thing to Elmer."

Narrator: "But Elmer interrupted."

Elmer: "No, Luke. Pack Rat's right. It's really my fault. I must put this trouble right."

Pack Rat: "I meant no disrespect, you understand."

Elmer: "Of course not, Pack Rat. Anyway, Animator says the same and he's arranged it with the stationmaster."

Lazy Luke: "Very well, Elmer."

Narrator: "Concieted Luke."

Lazy Luke: "But I must hurry, my passengers will be waiting. Good luck!"

Elmer: "So long!"

Narrator: "Smiled Luke bravely, but he felt dreadfully nervous inside.

Luke marshalled the worst Alligators two by two."

Pack Rat: "That's the way, Mr. Elmer."

Narrator: "Whispered the Pack Rat."

Pack Rat: "And if you leave that Muttley till' last, you can have him behind you, an you can bump him if he starts his nonsense."

Muttley: "Hold back, hold back!"

Narrator: "Whispered Muttley."

Muttley: "And pass the word to the others."

Narrator: "The silly Alligators giggled.

But Elmer knew what to do. There was plenty of sand on the ground, and his feet gripped splendidly. He gave a great heave."

Muttley: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Groaned Muttley."

Muttley: "I don't like this!"

Lazy Luke: "Go on!"

Narrator: "Yelled Luke."

Luke: "Well done

Muttley: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Wailed Muttley."

Muttley: "I'm coming apart!"

Narrator: "And he did.

Then there was trouble."

Announcer: "Well, Elmer, so you don't know your own strength. Is that it?"

Elmer: "N-no, Sir."

Narrator: "Said Elmer nervously."

The Announcer inspected Muttley."

Announcer: "As I thought. Rotten fur, rusty bones. Maybe if we put you back together, you'll earn yourself a better name."

Narrator: "Nowadays, Elmer only takes the Alligators when the other Racers are busy.

But they're always quick to warn each other,"

Alligators: "Take care with Mr. Elmer. If you play tricks on him, you'll never be the same Alligator again!"

Narrator: "Muttley has learned his lesson, and says nothing at all."
