Narrator: "All the toons on Acme Acres are very happy. They are all pleased to work on King Acorn's forest. There's always something new and exciting to look forward to, like the day the famous singer, Sonia the Hedgehog, came to give a concert at the town hall.
Buster met Hamton at the showers. His belly bubbled with pride."
Buster: "Hello, Hamton. I have a very special special. I must meet Sonia the Hedgehog at the harbor. Then, I have to take her straight to the town hall for a grand concert.
Hamton: "That's exciting. I have news, too. Someone else is arriving at the harbor."
Narrator: "Buster was puzzled."
Hamton: "Skippy, the new squirrel!"
Narrator: "Buster hadn't heard about Skippy."
Buster: "What's so special about Skippy?"
Hamton: "He's the favorite squirrel of the Mainland Controller. Everyone says he's the most fun squirrel ever, even more fun than you, Buster!"
Narrator: "Hamton chuffed cheerfully away."
Buster: "Crumbling carrots, I don't think any toon is more fun than me."
Narrator: "And Buster puffed off to the harbor, his feet whirring with worry.
Buster collected Sonia the Hedgehog at the harbor. Sonia looked very grand."
Sonia: "I'm pleased to be travelling with you, Buster."
Narrator: "Buster's body puffed with pride. Then, he saw Skippy."
Buster: "Skippy's smaller than me, and he certainly doesn't look more fun than me."
Skippy: "Hello. Are you Buster?"
Buster: "Yes, I am."
Skippy: "I'm Skippy. I've heard a lot about you."
Buster: "You have?"
Skippy: "The toons on the mainland say you're even more fun than me."
Narrator: "Buster was surprised. Then, King Acorn arrived."
King Acorn: "Buster, Skippy has a busy first day. Sonic has broken his leg. Skippy must pick up Sonic's seats from the Acme Workshop. Then, he has to collect ice cream from the dairy, and red carpet from Acme Looniversity. If Skippy needs help, I'm sure you'll look after him."
Buster: "Yes, Sir!"
Skippy: "Yippee! Want to go with me?"
Skippy: "It'll be fun!"
Buster: "Sorry, I'm busy."
Skippy: "I heard you were a fun rabbit. Maybe you're not fun at all!"
Narrator: "Buster didn't like being told he was no fun at all."
Buster: "I'll come with you to the Acme Workshop, and then I'll take Sonia to the town hall. I'm sure I'll have plenty of time."
Narrator: "So Buster set off slowly towards the Acme Workshop, and Skippy followed behind.
Buster chuffed carefully to the junction. Sonia smiled sweetly from Gracie. Skippy pulled up alongside."
Skippy: "This isn't fun! I'll show you fun!
Yippee! Ha ha!"
Narrator: "Buster couldn't let Skippy be more fun than him! He wound up his feet, and sped away. The race was on! Buster and Skippy roared and raced, their feet were fiery, they were soon red-faced. Sonia could not believe her eyes!"
Sonia: "My goondess me, this is a surprise! I though Buster was steady and slow, what thrills and what fun on the way to my show!"
Narrator: "The toons were laughing, the race was such fun."
Buster: "You're quick and you're speedy, but I'm #1!"
Narrator: "With a whoosh and a wheesh, the two toons pulled into the Acme Workshop."
Daffy Duck: "Steady, boys. Who's your friend, Buster?"
Buster: "Skippy. He's new.
Skippy: "I'm fun!"
Sonia: "And I'm Sonia the Hedgehog."
Daffy: (Gasps) "Ms. Hedgehog! It is an honor to have you visit our workshop!" (Porky drops something) "Porky!"
Porky: "Sorry, boss!"
Narrator: "And while Skippy collected the seats, Sonia sang to the workshop.
Then, it was time to go."
Skippy: "You are fun, Buster! Let's go to the dairy!"
Narrator: "Buster knew he should take Sonia straight to the town hall, but he didn't want Skippy to think he wasn't fun."
Buster: "I'm sure I still have time to get Sonia to the town hall."
Narrator: "So Buster and Skippy left for the dairy. Soon, the two toons came to a junction."
Skippy: "Let's puff down there."
Buster: "We can't. That's a bumpy path."
Skippy: "But it'll be fun!"
Narrator: "Buster wanted to be fun, so he followed Skippy down the bumpy path. Buster and Skippy bounced and bumped, Sonia the Hedgehog juttered and jumped, and the ducks jittered and jiggled, looser and looser."
Skippy: "That was fun!"
Buster: "And this is even more fun!
We must go, Ms. Hedgehog, you musn't be late for the concert!"
Skippy: "If you're a really fun rabbit, you'd race me to Acme Looniversity."
Narrator: "Buster knew he was late, but he wanted to be really fun."
Buster: "Just one last race, Skippy."
Narrator: "Buster and Skippy thundered and roared.
Buster thought he had never ran so fast."
Buster: "I'm first!"
Skippy: "Let's race again!"
Narrator: "Then, Knuckles ran past. He was huffing grandly. He was taking King Acorn to the town hall. Buster gasped."
Buster: (Gasp) "I'm late! I must run like the wind to the town hall!"
Narrator: "Buster wound up his feet, and he chuffed away quickly, in a cloud of dust!"
Buster: "I musn't be late! I musn't be late!"
Narrator: "Then there was trouble. Buster was going so fast, he didn't know he left Gracie, Gladys, and Sonia behind. Buster raced onto the town hall alone. Buster steamed to a stop. His cheeks were redder than his shirt!"
Buster: "Here I am, sir."
Narrator: "King Acorn looked hard at Buster."
King Acorn: "Here you are, Buster, but where are Gracie and Gladys? And where is Sonia."
Narrator: "Buster felt terrible. He had been having fun when he should have been really useful."
Buster: "I'm sorry, Sir. I have lost them."
Narrator: "King Acorn Boomed."
King Acorn: "Then you had better go and find them!"
Narrator: "Buster puffed to a junction. He had looked for Gracie and Gladys, but he couldn't find them anywhere. Then, Skippy chuffed up. He was on his way to the town hall."
Buster: "Hello, Skippy. I have lost Gracie and Gladys, and Ms. Hedgehog. I was going so fast, I didn't know they couldn't keep up while we were racing!"
Skippy: "Don't worry, Buster. I have a good idea."
Buster: "What's that?"
Skippy: "We'll have a race. Whoever finds Gracie and Gladys first is the #1 fun toon!"
Narrator: "Buster was stern. He didn't think that was a good idea."
Buster: "No, Skippy. This isn't the time for fun. This is the time for being really useful. I have a very important job to do."
Narrator: "And Buster huffed away.
Buster chuffed carefully. He was very worried.
Then, Buster heard singing. He smiled from head to toe."
Buster: "That's Ms. Hedgehog's singing! Hooray!"
Narrator: "Buster found Sonia by the bridge. He had never heard anything as beautiful as Sonia's singing."
Buster: "Sonia, we must go. I'm sorry I kept you waiting."
Narrator: "And Sonia cheerfully waved good-bye as the crowd clapped and cheered. Buster puffed to the Town Hall with Gracie and Gladys. King Acorn was cross."
King Acorn: "At last, Buster! You've made Ms. Hedgehog very late!"
Sonia: "Not at all, Maxamillian. Buster has made me very happy, I had the ride of my life! So many people to sing to, and such fun!"
Narrator: "That made Buster smile, and so did his fun friend, Skippy."
