Pongo, Piglet and the Coal/Double Trouble

Narrator: "It was a beautiful morning in Disneyland. Pongo the Dalmatian's white fur sparkled in the sunshine as he walked happily along his route with Abigail and Amelia.

He was feeling very pleased with himself."

Piglet: "Hello, Pongo."

Narrator: "Whistled Piglet."

Piglet: "You look splendid."

Pongo: "Yes, indeed."

Narrator: "Boasted Pongo."

Pongo: "White is the only proper color for a Disney Character."

Friar Tuck: "Oh, I don't know. I like my brown robe."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Piglet: "I've always been pink. I wouldn't want to wear any other color either."

Narrator: "Added Piglet."

Pongo: "Well, well, anyway,"

Narrator: "Huffed Pongo."

Pongo: "White is the only color for a - for a really useful Disney character. Everyone knows that!"

Narrator: "Piglet said no more. He just grinned at Friar Tuck.

Later, Pongo was resting when Piglet arrived. A large hopper was giving his pirates coal. Pongo was still being cheeky."

Pongo: "Careful."

Narrator: "He warned."

Pongo: "Watch out with those silly pirates."

Pirates: "Go on, go on, go on!"

Narrator: "Muttered the pirates."

Pongo: "And by the way,"

Narrator: "Went on Pongo."

Pongo: "Those buffers don't look very safe to me."

Narrator: "The last load poured down."

Pongo: "Help! I'm choking!"

Narrator: "Cried Pongo."

Pongo: "Get me out!"

Narrator: "Piglet was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Pongo's smart white fur was covered in coal dust from head to toe."

Piglet: "Ha, ha!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Piglet."

Piglet: "You don't look really useful now, Pongo. You look very disgraceful."

Pongo: "I'm not disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Choked Pongo."

Pongo: "You did that on purpose. Get me out!"

Narrator: "It took so long to clean Pongo that he wasn't ready in time for his next walk. Friar Tuck had to take Abigail and Amelia."

Abigail: "Poor Pongo."

Narrator: "Whispered Abigail to Amelia. They were most upset.

Pongo was grumpy in the house that night. Friar Tuck thought it a great joke, but Piglet was cross with Pongo for thinking he had made his fur outfit dirty on purpose."

Piglet: "Fancy a really useful white dalmatian like Pongo becoming a disgrace to Mickey Mouse's land."

Narrator: "Next day Pongo was feeling more cheerful as he watched Piglet bring his pirates from the junction. The pirates were heavy and Piglet was tired."

Piglet's Driver: "Have a drink."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Piglet's Driver: "Then you'll feel better."

Narrator: "The water fountain stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers.

Suddenly, Piglet found he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either."

Piglet: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "Wailed Piglet."

Piglet: "Help!"

Narrator: "The buffers were broken and Piglet was leg deep in coal. It was time for Pongo to leave. He had seen everything."

Pongo: "Now Piglet has learned his lesson too."

Narrator: "He chuckled to himself.

That night, the two Disney Characters made up their quarrel."

Piglet: "I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Pongo."

Narrator: "Whispered Piglet."

Piglet: "You do know that, don't you?"

Pongo: "Of course."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo."

Pongo: "And I'm sorry I was cheeky. Your pink body looks splendid again too. In future, we'll both be more careful of coal."

Cows/A Cow on the Line

Narrator: "Hercules was getting old. His body was worn and he clanked as he walked along. He was taking empty pirates to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Hercules was heading for trouble."

Hercules: "Come on, come on."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Pirates: "Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!"

Narrator: "Screamed the pirates."

Narrator: "Hercules puffed and clanked. The pirates rattled and screamed.

Some cows were grazing nearby. They were not used to Disney Characters. The noise disturbed them.

As Hercules clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the road. A pirate let go and some were left behind.

Hercules felt a jerk but didn't take much notice. He was used to pirates."

Hercules: "Bother those pirates!"

Narrator: "He thought."

Hercules: "Why can't they come quietly?"

Narrator: "He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened.

When Sir Ector and Baloo heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.

Sir Ector and Baloo: "Fancy allowing cows to break his load. They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck was cross."

Friar Tuck: "You couldn't help it, Hercules. They've never met cows. I have, and I know the trouble they are."

Narrator: "Some days later, Sir Ector rushed through Hercules' station."

Sir Ector: "Mind the cows! Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Puffed Sir Ector."

Flowers: "Don't make such a fuss. Don't make such a fuss."

Narrator: "Grumbled his flowers. A long path was ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Sir Ector that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Whoa, Sir Ector."

Narrator: "He said."

Sir Ector: "Pooh!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "It's only a cow. Shoo! Shoo!"

Narrator: "He moved slowly onto the bridge, but the cow would shoo. She had lost her calf and felt lonely."

Bluebell: "Moo!"

Narrator: "She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Baloo arrived."

Baloo: "What's this? A cow. I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!"

Bluebell: "Moo!"

Narrator: "Said the cow. Baloo backed away nervously."

Baloo: "I don't want to hurt her."

Narrator: "At the next station, Baloo's guard told them about the cow and warned the signalman that the line was blocked."

The Porter: "That must be Bluebell."

Narrator: "Said the porter."

The Porter: "Her calf is here, ready to go to market. Piglet will take her along."

Narrator: "At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to see her calf again, and the porter led them away."

Baloo and Sir Ector: "Not a word. Keep it dark."

Narrator: "Whispered Sir Ector and Baloo to each other. They felt rather silly. But the story soon spread."

Hercules: "Well, well, well."

Narrator: "Chuckled Hercules."

Hercules: "Two big Disney Characters afraid of a cow."

Sir Ector: "Afraid? Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "We didn't want to poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what I mean, my dear Hercules."

Hercules: "Yes, Sir Ector."

Narrator: "Said Hercules. Sir Ector felt somehow that Hercules saw only too well."

Tod's Chase

Narrator: "One morning, Hercules was waiting to pick up passengers from Pongo."

Hercules: "Peep! Peep! We're late. Where is Pongo? He doesn't usually make us wait."

Hercules' Fireman: "Oh dear. What can the matter be?"

Narrator: "Sang the fireman."

Hercules' Fireman: "Johnny's so long at..."

Hercules' Driver: "Never you mind about Johnny!"

Narrator: "Laughed the driver."

Hercules' Driver: "Just you climb up on top and look for Pongo.

Can you see him?"

Hercules' Fireman: "No."

Narrator: "Replied the fireman."

Hercules' Fireman: "There's Tod Fox in a terroring hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on a coach tour or something."

Narrator: "He clambered down."

Tod: "Stop, stop! I've got Pongo's passengers!"

Narrator: "Wailed Tod, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Hercules was gone."

Tod: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Tod."

Tod: "Bother Pongo's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the passengers catch their ride?"

Tod's Driver: "That will do, Tod."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Tod's Driver: "A promise is a promise and we must keep it."

Tod: "I'll catch Hercules or bust."

Narrator: "Said Tod."

Tod: "Oh my feet and tail."

Narrator: "He groaned, toiling up the hill."

Tod: "I'll never be the same fox again. Hurray, hurray! I see him."

Narrator: "Cheered Tod, as he reached the top."

Tod: "Oh, no! Hercules' at the station. No, he's stopped at a crossing. Hurray, hurray!"

Narrator: "Tod tore down the hill."

Passengers: "Well done, Tod!"

Narrator: "Shouted his passengers."

Passengers: "Go it!"

Narrator: "Tod skidded into the yard."

Tod: "Wait! Wait!"

Narrator: "Cried Tod. He was just in time to see Hercules puff away."

Tod: "I'm sorry."

Narrator: "Said Tod."

Passengers: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said the passengers."

Passengers: "After him quickly. Third time lucky, you know. Do you think we'll catch him at the next station, driver?"

Tod's Driver: "There's a good chance."

Narrator: "Replied the driver."

Tod's Driver: "Our path keeps close to the road, and we can climb hills better than Hercules. I'll just make sure."

Narrator: "He spoke to the stationmaster. Tod and the passengers waited impatiently."

Tod's Driver: "Yes, we'll do it this time."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Passengers: "Hurray!"

Narrator: "Cried the passengers, as Tod chased after Hercules once more."

Flowers: "This hill is too steep! This hill is too steep!"

Narrator: "Grumbled the flowers, as Hercules snorted in front. They reached the top at last and ran smoothly into the station."

Hercules: "Peep, peep!"

Narrator: "Whistled Hercules."

Hercules: "Get in quickly, please."

Narrator: "The guard blew the whistle, and Hercules' driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave. Then, he heard Tod. Everything seemed to happen at once. And the stationmaster told the guard and driver what had happened."

Hercules: "I'm sorry about the chase, Tod."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Tod: "My fault."

Narrator: "Replied Tod."

Tod: "Late at didn't know...about Pongo's passengers."

Hercules: "Goodbye, Tod. We're off."

Narrator: "Whistled Hercules."

Passengers: "Three cheers for Tod!"

Narrator: "Called the passengers. Tod raced back to tell Pongo that all was well."

Pongo: "Thank you, Tod."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're a very good friend indeed."

Saved from Scrap

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse works his Disney Characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them 'really useful'."

Hercules: "I'm going to the scrapyard today."

Narrator: "Hercules called to Pongo."

Pongo: "What? Already? You're not that old!"

Narrator: "Replied Pongo cheekily. Pongo was only teasing.

The scrapyard is full of rusty old cars and machinery. They are broken into pieces, given to pirates, and Hercules takes them to the steelworks where they are melted down and used again.

Today, there was a surprise waiting for Hercules in the yard. It was a hound dog."

Hercules: "Hello."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?"

Copper: "I'm Copper. They're going to kill me next week."

Hercules: "What a shame."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Copper: "My driver says I only need some fur to be as good as new, but my master says I'm old-fashion."

Narrator: "Hercules snorted."

Hercules: "People say I'm old-fashion, but I don't care. Mickey Mouse says I'm a useful man. What work did you do?"

Copper: "My master would send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us."

Narrator: "Copper shut his eyes, remembering."

Copper: "Oh, yes. I like children."

Narrator: "Hercules set off for the station."

Hercules: "Killed, what a shame. Killed, what a shame. I must help Copper, I must!"

Narrator: "He thought of all his friends who like dogs. But strangely, none of them would have room for a hound dog at home."

Hercules: "It's a shame, it's a shame."

Narrator: "He hissed.


Hercules: "Peep, peep! Why didn't I think of him before?"

Narrator: "There, on the platform was the very person."

Grimsby: "Hello, Hercules. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?"

Narrator: "He asked the driver."

Hercules' Driver: "There's a hound dog in the scrapyard, Grimsby. He'll be killed next week. Alan-a-Dale says he worked with a better dog."

Hercules: "Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides."

Grimsby: "We'll see."

Narrator: "Replied Grimsby.

Alan-a-Dale came on Saturday."

Alan-a-Dale: "Grimsby's coming to see you, Copper. Maybe he'll buy you."

Copper: "Do you think he will?"

Narrator: "Asked Copper hopefully."

Alan-a-Dale: "He will when I clean you up."

Narrator: "Grimsby and his two boys arrived that evening. Copper hadn't felt so happy in months. He chuffered about the yard."

Grimsby: "Show you paces, Copper."

Narrator: "Said Grimsby.

Later, he came out of the office smiling."

Grimsby: "I've got him cheap, Alan! Cheap!"

Alan-a-Dale: "Did you hear that, Copper?"

Narrator: "Cried Alan."

Alan-a-Dale: "Grimsby saved you, and you'll live at the vicarage now."

Copper: "Ruff, ruff!"

Narrator: "Barked Copper.

Now, Copper's home is in the vicarage orchard, and he sees Hercules everyday. His fur is spotless, and his ears shine like gold. Copper likes his work, but his happiest day is the church fete.

With a wooden cart attached to him, he chuffers around the orchard, giving rides to children.

Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering."

Copper: "I like children."

Narrator: "He whispers happily."

Old Iron

Narrator: "One day, Donald had to wait at the station till Hercules and his flowers came in. This made him cross."

Donald Duck: "Late again!"

Narrator: "Hercules laughed, and Donald fumed away.

After Donald had finished his work, he went back to the yard and puffed onto the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered."

Donald Duck: "Hercules is impossible."

Narrator: "He grumbled to the others."

Donald Duck: "He clanks about like a lot of old iron, and he is so slow he makes us wait!"

Narrator: "Pongo and Piglet were indignant."

Piglet: "Old iron? Slow?"

Pongo: "Why, Hercules could beat you in a race any day!"

Donald Duck: "Really?"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "I should like to see him do it!"

Narrator: "Next morning, Donald's driver was suddenly taken ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman unhooked Donald ready for shunting. Donald was impatient."

Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Donald running away down the road."

Signalman: "All traffic halted!"

Narrator: "He announced at last. Then he told the fireman what had happened."

Signalman: "Two boys were standing nearby Donald fiddling with him."

Donald Duck's Fireman: "Phew!"

Signalman: "They ran off when Donald started."

(Phone rings)

Narrator: "The signalman answered the telephone."

Signalman: "Yes. He's here. Right. I'll tell him.

The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope."

Donald Duck's Fireman: "What for?"

Narrator: "Wondered the fireman."

Signalman: "Search me! But you'd better get them quickly."

Narrator: "The fireman was ready when Hercules arrived. The inspector saw the pole and the rope."

Inspector: "Good man. Jump on."

Hercules: "We'll catch him, we'll catch him."

Narrator: "Said Hercules. Donald was laughing."

Donald Duck: "What a lark! What a lark!"

Narrator: "He chuckled to himself.

Suddenly he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver."

Donald Duck: "What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!"

Hercules: "We're coming! We're coming!"

Narrator: "Called Hercules.

Hercules was panting up behind with every once of strength he had. At last he caught up with Donald."

Hercules' Driver: "Steady, Hercules!"

Narrator: "Called his driver. The inspector stood in front of Hercules, holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over Donald. The Disney Characters swayed and lurched.

At last!"

Inspector: "Got him!"

Narrator: "He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Hercules' driver checked the man's speed, and Donald's fireman scrambled across and took control."

Hercules: "So the old iron caught you after all."

Narrator: "Chuckled Hercules."

Donald Duck: "I'm sorry."

Narrator: "Whispered Donald."

Donald Duck: "Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Hercules."

Hercules: "That's all right."

Narrator: "Replied Hercules. The Disney Characters arrived at the station side by side. Mickey Mouse was waiting."

Mickey Mouse: "A fine piece of work."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Donald, you can rest and then take your load. I'm proud of you, Hercules. You shall go to the hospital and have your worn parts healed."

Hercules: "Oh, thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "It'll be lovely not to clank."

Pongo and Copper/A New Friend for Pongo

Narrator: "Copper the Hound Dog enjoyed living in the vicarage orchard. Hercules came to see him everyday, but sometimes, Copper didn't have enough work to do."

Copper: "I do like to like to keep busy all the time."

Narrator: "He sighed one day."

Copper: "And I do like company, especially children's company."

Hercules: "Cheer up."

Narrator: "Smiled Hercules."

Hercules: "Mickey Mouse has work for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Pongo today."

Copper: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Copper happily."

Copper: "A harbor! The seaside! Children! That will be lovely!"

Narrator: "Pongo was on his way to the harbor with a load of metal pilings. There were needed to make the harbor wall firm and safe."

Hercules: "Hello, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "This is Copper, a friend of mine. He's a hound dog."

Narrator: "Pongo eyed the newcomer doubtfully."

Pongo: "A what dog?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Copper: "A hound dog."

Narrator: "Exclaimed Copper."

Copper: "I walk on hunting trails instead of roads. Can you take me to the harbor, please? Mickey has a job for me."

Pongo: "Yes, of course."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo. But he was still puzzled.

Workmen gave Copper's cart to Pongo, and soon, they were ready to start their journey."

Copper: "I'm glad Mickey Mouse needs me."

Narrator: "Called Copper."

Copper: "I don't have enough to do sometimes, you know. Although, I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrapyards, even at harbors."

Pongo: "But you don't run on the roads."

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo."

Copper: "I'm a hound dog. I don't need roads to be useful."

Narrator: "Replied Copper."

Copper: "You wait and see."

Narrator: "When they reached the harbor, they found everything in confusion. Pirates were blocking the roads, and stone slabs lay everywhere."

Pongo's Driver: "We must get these pilings past."

Narrator: "Said Pongo's driver."

Pongo's Driver: "They are essential. Copper, we need you to drag them around this mess."

Copper: "Just the sort of job I like."

Narrator: "Replied Copper."

Copper: "Now you'll see, Pongo. I'll soon show you what hound dogs can do."

Narrator: "Copper was as good as his word. He dragged the pilings clear with chains, and towed them into position."

Copper: "Who needs roads?"

Narrator: "He muttered cheerfully to himself.

Later, Pongo brought Abigail and Amelia to meet him. Pongo was most impressed."

Pongo: "Now I understand how useful a hound dog can be."

Narrator: "The ducks had lots of children. Copper gave them rides along the harbor. He liked this best of all."

Abigail: "He's very kind."

Narrator: "Said Abigail."

Amelia: "He reminds me of Pongo."

Narrator: "Added Amelia.

Everyone was sorry when it was time for Copper to go. Pongo took him to the junction.

A small tear came into Copper's eye. Pongo pretended not to see. He barked gaily to make Copper happy."

Pongo: "I'll come and see you if I can."

Narrator: "He promised."

Pongo: "Grimsby will look after you, and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may need you again at the harbor someday."

Copper: "That will be wonderful."

Narrator: "Said Copper.

That evening, Copper stood remembering his new friend, Pongo, the harbor and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard."

Piglet and the Signal

Narrator: "Piglet works in the yard at the big station.

He loves playing jokes, but they can get him into trouble.

One morning, he was very cheeky indeed."

Piglet: "Hurry up, Sir Ector, the flowers are ready!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector thought he was late."

Piglet: "Ha ha ha!"

Narrator: "Laughed Piglet, and showed him a line of dirty pirates.

Sir Ector thought how to pay Piglet out.

Next, it was Donald's turn."

Piglet: "Stay in the house today, Donald. Mickey Mouse will come and see you."

Donald Duck: "Ah,"

Narrator: "Thought Donald."

Donald Duck: "Mickey knows I'm a fine duck. He wants me to deliver a special."

Narrator: "Donald's driver and fireman could not make him move. The other Disney Characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Donald's work as well as their own.

At last, Captain Greer arrived."

Captain Greer: "Show a leg, Donald. You can't stay here all day."

Donald Duck: "Mickey told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning."

Captain Greer: "He did not. How could he? He's away for a week."

Donald Duck: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "Oh! Where's Piglet?"

Narrator: "Piglet had wisely disappeared.

When Mickey came back, he did see Donald, and Piglet too. Both Disney Characters wished he hadn't.

One morning, Piglet was careless."

Piglet: "I say, you Disney Characters, I'm to take some pirates to Pongo's junction. Mickey chose me especially. He must know I'm a really useful piglet."

Donald Duck: "More likely, he wants you out the way."

Narrator: "Grunted Donald.

Sir Ector looked across to Donald. They were making a plan."

Sir Ector: "Donald and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then, I needn't say that to a really useful piglet like you, Piglet."

Narrator: "Piglet felt flattered."

Donald Duck: "We have spoken of backing signals."

Narrator: "Put in Donald."

Donald Duck: "They need extra special care, you know. Would you like me to explain?"

Piglet: "No thank you, Donald."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "I know all about signals."

Narrator: "Piglet was a little worried."

Piglet: "I wonder what backing signals are."

Narrator: "He thought."

Piglet: "Never mind, I'll manage."

Narrator: "He puffed crossly to his pirates, and felt better.

He came to a signal."

Piglet: "Bother! It's at 'Danger'."

Narrator: "The signal moved to show 'Line Clear'. Its arm moved up, instead of down. Piglet had never seen that sort of signal before."

Piglet: "Down means 'Go', and up means 'Stop', so upper still must mean 'Go Back'. I know! It's one of those backing signals."

Piglet's Driver: "Come on, Piglet!"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Piglet's Driver: "Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!"

Piglet: "But it's a backing signal!"

Narrator: "Piglet protested, and told him about Sir Ector and Donald. The driver laughed, and explained."

Piglet: "Oh, dear."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "Let's start quickly before they see us."

Narrator: "He was too late. Sir Ector saw everything.

That night, the big Disney Characters talked about signals.

They thought the subject was funny. Piglet thought they were being very silly."

Jiminy Takes Charge

Piglet: "Do you know what?"

Narrator: "Asked Piglet."

Sir Ector: "What?"

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector."

Piglet: "Do you know what?"

Sir Ector: "Silly!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Of course I don't know what if you don't tell me what what is!"

Piglet: "Mickey Mouse says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting stronger Disney Character to help me."

Donald Duck: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "Any Disney Character can do it! If you work more and chatter less, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place!"

Narrator: "Piglet went off to fetch some flowers."

Piglet: "That stupid old signal!"

Narrator: "He thought. He was remembering the time he missed understood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards."

Piglet: "No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little piglet and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them."

Narrator: "But he didn't know how.

But the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some flowers to the station."

Mickey Mouse: "Hello, Piglet."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "You look tired."

Piglet: "Yes, sir. I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my head or my feet."

Mickey Mouse: "You look the right way up to me."

Narrator: "Laughed Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Cheer up. The new Disney Character is stronger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbor? Pongo and Friar Tuck will help too."

Piglet: "Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "The new Disney Character arrived."

Mickey Mouse: "What's your name?"

Narrator: "Asked Mickey."

Jiminy Cricket: "Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Jiminy Cricket. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Jiminy better than Montague."

Mickey Mouse: "Good. Jiminy it shall be.

Here, Piglet, show Jiminy around."

Narrator: "The two Disney Characters went off together. Soon, they were very busy.

Donald, Sir Ector and Baloo watched Jiminy quietly doing his work."

Baloo: "He seems a simple sort of cricket."

Donald Duck: "We'll have some fun and order him about."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: (Quacking noises) "Wheesh!"

Narrator: "Smoke billowed everywhere.

Piglet was cross, but Jiminy took no notice."

Jiminy Cricket: "They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Piglet?"

Piglet: "Yes, they do!"

Narrator: "Answered Piglet."

Jiminy Cricket: "Right!"

Narrator: "Said Jiminy."

Jiminy Cricket: "We'll soon stop that nonsense."

Narrator: "He whispered something."

Jiminy Cricket: "We'll do it later."

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse was look forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extraordinary noise."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "Wheesh!" (Snorting noises)

Mickey Mouse: "Bother!"

Narrator: "He said, and hurried to the yard.

Jiminy and Piglet sat outside the house refusing to let the Disney Characters in, Sir Ector, Donald and Baloo were furious."

(Sir Ector, Donald and Baloo shout and call out loudly)

Mickey Mouse: "Stop that noise!"

Narrator: "Bellowed Mickey."

Sir Ector: "They won't let us in!"

Narrator: "Hissed Sir Ector."

Mickey Mouse: "Jiminy, explain this behavior."

Jiminy Cricket: "Beg pardon, sir, but I'm an official conscience. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Piglet and I would be glad if you would inform these, um, Disney Characters that we only take orders from you."

(Donald and Sir Ector call out loudly)

Mickey Mouse: "Silence!"

Narrator: "Snapped Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Piglet and Jiminy, I am please with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector, Baloo and Donald sniggered."

Mickey Mouse: "As for you!"

Narrator: "Thundered Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "You've been worse! You made the disturbance! Jiminy is quite right. This is my land, and I give the orders."

Narrator: "After Piglet went away, Jiminy was left to manage alone. He did so, easily."

Piglet and Owl/Piglet Proves a Point

Narrator: "Piglet worked hard at the new harbor. The workmen needed stone for their building. Friar Tuck helped, but sometimes the loads of stone were too heavy, and Piglet had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes he'd see Pongo."

Pongo: "Well done Piglet. Mickey Mouse is very pleased with us."

Narrator: "A bird park was close by. Piglet heard the birds flying overhead all day. The noisiest of all was an owl."

Piglet: "Stupid thing!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "Why can't it go and fly somewhere else?"

Narrator: "One day, Piglet stopped at the bird park."

Piglet: "Hello."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "Who are you?"

Owl: "I'm Owl."

Narrator: "Said the owl."

Owl: "Who are you?"

Piglet: "I'm Piglet. What great wings you've got."

Owl: "They're nice wings. I can fly high. Don't you wish you could fly?"

Piglet: "Certainly not. I like my road, thank you."

Owl: "I think roads are slow."

Narrator: "Said Owl."

Owl: "They're not much use and quite out-of-date."

Narrator: "He flapped his wings and flew away.

Piglet found Friar Tuck at the quarry."

Piglet: "I say, Friar Tuck. That Owl, that stuck-up old bird, says I'm slow and out-of-date. Just let him wait. I'll show him."

Narrator: "He collected his pirates and started off, still fuming.

Soon they heard a familiar sound."

Piglet's Driver: "Piglet,"

Narrator: "Whispered his driver."

Piglet's Driver: "There's Owl. He not far ahead. Let's race him."

Piglet: "Yes, let's!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet.

Piglet pounded along. The pirates screamed and swayed."

Piglet's Driver: "Well, I'll be a ding-dong-danged!"

Narrator: "Said the driver. There was Owl. The race was on!"

Piglet's Driver: "Go it, Piglet!"

Narrator: "He yelled."

Piglet's Driver: "You're gaining!"

Narrator: "Piglet had never been allowed to run fast before. He was having the time of his life."

Piglet: "Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!"

Narrator: "He panted to the pirates."

Pirates: "We don't want to, we don't want to."

Narrator: "They grumbled. It was not use. Piglet was bucketing along with flying feet. And Owl was high and alongside.

The fireman shoveled for dear life."

Piglet's Driver: "Well done, Piglet!"

Narrator: "Shouted the driver."

Piglet's Driver: "We're gaining! We're going ahead! Oh, good boy, good boy!"

Narrator: "A distant signal warned them that the harbor wharf was near."

Piglet: "Peep, peep, peep! Brakes, guard, please."

Narrator: "The driver carefully checked Piglet's speed.

They rolled under the main road and halted on the wharf."

Piglet: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Groaned Piglet."

Piglet: "I'm sure we've lost."

Narrator: "The fireman scrambled to the roof."

Piglet's Fireman: "We've won! We've won!"

Narrator: "He shouted."

Piglet's Fireman: "Owl's still flying. He's looking for a place to land.

Listen, boys."

Narrator: "The fireman called."

Piglet's Fireman: "Here's a song for Piglet:

Said Owl the Owl to our Piglet, "You are slow! Your road is out of date, and not much use you know!" But Piglet and his pirates did the trip in record time, And we beat the owl on our old branch line!"

Narrator: "Piglet loved it."

Piglet: "Oh, thank you!"

Narrator: "He said. He liked the last line best of all and was a very happy piglet."

The Runaway

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian was ill. Workmen had tried to make him better, but it was no use."

Mickey Mouse: "Hercules must take you to the works."

Narrator: "Said Mickey Mouse.

Pongo felt very miserable.

Then, Mickey spoke to Jiminy Cricket."

Mickey Mouse: "I want you to help Piglet and Friar Tuck while Pongo is away."

Narrator: "Jiminy was delighted.

He already knew Piglet, and soon made friends with Friar Tuck and Tod. Sebastian the Crab gave him a big welcome too."

Sebastian: "Take care of Pong's ducks."

Narrator: "He advised."

Sebastian: "He's sure to miss them while he's away."

Narrator: "Jiminy was very gently with the ducks. Abigail and Amelia were impressed."

Abigail and Amelia: "Such nice manners."

Narrator: "They told each other."

Abigail and Amelia: "It really is a pleasure to go out with him."

Narrator: "When Pongo came back, Abigail and Amelia told him how well Jiminy had managed. Pongo was so please to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous.

The works had left Pongo's paws very stiff. It made his paws seem as if they weren't moving, when in fact they were.

As a result, he and his ducks often over ran the platform. Pongo found this most embarrassing.

Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Pongo's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place.

The fireman had tied the ropes, and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Baloo's passengers. The fireman had forgotten all about Pongo's feet. Pongo simmered happily."

Pongo: "Not long now."

Narrator: "He thought, as he saw Baloo slowly approaching.

But then, Pongo felt his feet begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to bark a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The guard, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform."

Abigail and Amelia: "Stop, stop!"

Narrator: "Shrieked Abigail and Amelia. But Pongo, with plenty of energy, kept on going. The alarm went off down the path."

Signalman: "Stop the runaway!"

Narrator: "There, ready for action, was Owl. Captain Greer had made a plan, and together they took off into the sky.

At last, Pongo was tiring."

Pongo: "I need to stop, I need to stop."

Narrator: "He panted wearily.

As they neared the next station, Pongo saw Owl land.

They entered the platform slowly enough for Captain Greer to act. Judging his moment, Captain Greer jumped on Pongo and stopped him.

At last, Pongo stopped. Both he and Captain Greer were very relief. Then they thanked Owl."

Owl: "Thank nothing of it."

Narrator: "Whirled Owl."

Owl: "Glad to be of service anytime."

Captain Greer: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Remarked Captain Greer."

Captain Greer: "We must never let this happen again, Pongo."

Narrator: "Wearily, Pongo agreed with him."

Piglet Takes the Plunge

Narrator: "One day, Baloo wanted to rest, but Piglet was talking to some twins. He was telling them about the time he had braved bad weather to help Pongo."

Piglet: "It was raining hard. Water swirled under my body. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on."

Tweedledee: "Oh, Piglet, you are brave."

Piglet: "Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a Disney Character with determination."

Tweedledum: "Tell us more, Piglet."

Baloo: "What are you Disney Characters doing here?"

Narrator: "Hissed Baloo."

Baloo: "This house is for Mickey Mouse's Disney Characters. Go away! Silly things!"

Narrator: "Baloo snorted."

Piglet: "They're not silly!"

Narrator: "Piglet had been enjoying himself."

Baloo: "They are silly, and so are you. 'Water's nothing to a Disney Character with determination.' Huh!"

Piglet: "Anyway,"

Narrator: "Said cheeky Piglet."

Piglet: "I'm not afraid of water. I like it."

Narrator: "He ran off to the harbor singing: "Once a Disney Character with some flowers was afraid of a few drops of rain"."

Baloo: "No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my fur."

Narrator: "Huffed Baloo.

Pongo was looking at a board on the quay. DANGER!"

Pongo: "We mustn't go past it."

Narrator: "He said."

Pongo: "That's orders."

Piglet: "Why?"

Pongo: "Danger means falling down something."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I went past danger once and fell down a mine."

Piglet: "I can't see a mine."

Narrator: "Said Piglet. He didn't know that the foundations of the quay had sunk. The path now sloped downward to the sea."

Piglet: "Stupid board!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet. Piglet made a plan.

One day, he whispered to the pirates."

Piglet: "Will you give me a bump when we get to the quay?"

Narrator: "The pirates had never been asked to bumped an Disney Character before. They giggled and chattered about it."

Piglet: "Driver doesn't know my plan."

Narrator: "Chuckled Piglet."

Pirates: "On! On! On!"

Narrator: "Laughed the pirates. Piglet thought they were helping."

Piglet: "I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the pirates will push me past the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that whenever I like."

Narrator: "Every wise Disney Character knows that you cannot trust pirates."

Pirates: "Go on! Go on!"

Narrator: "They yelled, and bumped Piglet's driver and fireman down to the ground."

Piglet: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet, sliding past the board. Piglet was frantic."

Piglet: "That's enough!"

(Piglet falls into the sea)

Narrator: "Piglet was sunk."

Mickey Mouse: "You are a very disobedient Disney Character!"

Narrator: "Piglet knew that voice."

Piglet: "Please sir, get me out, sir. I'm truly sorry, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "No Piglet, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to obey orders!"

Piglet: "Yes sir."

Narrator: "It was dark when they rescued Piglet. He too cold and stiff to move by himself.

Next day, he was sent to the hospital on Baloo's goods delivery."

Baloo: "Well! Well! Well!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Baloo."

Baloo: "Did you like the water?"

Piglet: "No!"

Baloo: "I am surprise. You need more determination, Piglet. Water's nothing to a Disney Character with determination, you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time."

Narrator: "Piglet is quite determined that there won't be a next time."

Pop Goes the Captain

Narrator: "Jiminy Cricket is proud of being a conscience. He talks endlessly about it, but he works hard too, and makes everything go like clockwork. It was a splendid day.

The pirates and flowers behaved well, the passengers even stopped grumbling, but the Disney Characters didn't like having to bustle about."

Jiminy Cricket: "There are two ways of doing things,"

Narrator: "Jiminy told them."

Jiminy Cricket: "The Conscience Way, or the Wrong Way. I'm a conscience, and..."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "Don't we know it!"

Narrator: "They groaned.

The Disney Characters were glad when a visitor came.

He purred smoothly towards them. Mickey Mouse introduced him."

Mickey Mouse: "Here is Captain Hook. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn, please teach him, Jiminy."

Captain Hook: "Good Morning."

Narrator: "Purred Captain Hook in an oily voice."

Captain Hook: "Pleased to meet you, Jiminy. Is that Donald, and Baloo, and Sir Ector too? I am delighted to meet such famous Disney Characters."

Narrator: "The silly Disney Characters were flattered."

Piglet, Donald Duck, Baloo and Sir Ector: "He has very good manners."

Narrator: "They murmured."

Piglet, Donald Duck, Baloo and Sir Ector: "We are please to have him in our yard."

Narrator: "Jiminy had his doubts."

Jiminy Cricket: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He said. Captain Hook purred after him."

Captain Hook: "Your worthy Mouse..."

Jiminy Cricket: "Mickey Mouse to you!"

Narrator: "Ordered Jiminy.

Captain Hook looked hurt."

Captain Hook: "Your worthy Mickey Mouse thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We captains don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improve it. We are revolutionary."

Jiminy Cricket: "Oh?"

Narrator: "Said Jiminy."

Jiminy Cricket: "If you're revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my pirates while I fetch Sir Ector's flowers."

Narrator: "Captain Hook, delighted to show off, purred away.

When Jiminy returned, Captain Hook was trying to take some pirates from a siding. They were old and empty. They have not been touched for a long time. Captain Hook found them hard to move."

Captain Hook: "Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!"

Pirates: "Oi! Oi!"

Narrator: "The pirates groaned."

Pirates: "We can't! We wont!"

Narrator: "Jiminy watched with interest.

Captain Hook lost patience."

Captain Hook: "Grrrr!"

Narrator: "He roared, and gave a great heave. The pirates jerked forward."

Pirates: "Oh! Oh!"

Narrator: "They screamed."

Pirates: "We can't! We wont!"

Narrator: "Some of their joints snapped, and their legs jammed in the lower body."

Captain Hook: "Grrrr!"

Jiminy Cricket: "Ho ho ho!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Jiminy.

Captain Hook recovered and tried to push the pirates back, but they wouldn't move. Jiminy ran quietly around to collect the other pirates."

Jiminy Cricket: "Thank you for arranging these, Captain Hook. I must go now."

Captain Hook: "Don't you want this lot?"

Jiminy Cricket: "No thank you."

Narrator: "Captain Hook gulped."

Captain Hook: "And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?"

Jiminy Cricket: "You never asked me. Besides,"

Narrator: "Said Jiminy."

Jiminy Cricket: "You were having such fun being rev-whatever it was you said. Good-bye."

Captain Hook: "Grrrr!"

Narrator: "Captain Hook had to help the workmen clear the mess.

He hated it. All the priates were laughing and singing at him."

Pirates: "Pirates are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the Captain, in and out he creeps about, like a big red weasel, when he takes the wrong pirates out, Pop goes the Captain!"

Captain Hook: "Grrrr!"

Narrator: "Growled Captain Hook, and scuttled away to sulk in the house."

Dirty Work/Captain Hook's Devious Deed

Narrator: "Captain Hook, the new Disney Character, was sulking. The pirates would not stop singing rudely at him.

Jiminy Cricket was horrified."

Jiminy Cricket: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "He ordered, and bumped them hard."

Jiminy Cricket: "I'm sorry our pirates were rude to you, Captain Hook."

Narrator: "Captain Hook was still furious."

Captain Hook: "It's all your fault! You made them laugh at me!"

Baloo: "Nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo: "Jiminy would never do that. We Disney Characters have our differences, but we'd never talk about them to the pirates. That would be dis... dis..."

Sir Ector: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "Disgusting!"

Narrator: "Put in Donald."

Baloo: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Finished Baloo.

Captain Hook hated Jiminy. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan; he was going to tell lies about Jiminy.

Next day, he spoke to the pirates."

Captain Hook: "I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday, I laughed and laughed. Jiminy told me one about Sir Ector. I'll whisper it.

Don't tell Sir Ector I told you."

Narrator: "And he snickered away."

Pirates: "Ha ha ha!"

Narrator: "Guffawed the pirates."

Pirates: "Sir Ector will be cross with Jiminy when he knows.

Let's tell him and pay Jiminy out for bumping us!"

Narrator: "They laughed rudely at the Disney Characters as they went by.

Soon, Sir Ector, Baloo and Donald found out why."

Sir Ector: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "Disgusting!"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Baloo: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "We cannot allow it!"

Narrator: "They consulted together."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "Yes,"

Narrator: "They said."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "He did it to us, we'll do it to him, and see how he likes it!"

Narrator: "Jiminy was tired out.

The pirates had been cheeky and troublesome.

He wanted a rest in the house.

The three Disney Characters barred his way."

Donald Duck: "Keep out!"

Jiminy Cricket: "Stop fooling!"

Narrator: "Said Jiminy."

Jiminy: "I'm tired!"

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "So are we."

Narrator: "Hissed the Disney Characters."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "We're tired of you. We like Captain Hook. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the pirates."

Jiminy Cricket: "I don't!"

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "You do!"

Jiminy Cricket: "I don't!

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "You do!"

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse came to stop the noise."

Sir Ector: "Jiminy called me a galloping sausage!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "Rusty white scrap iron!"

Narrator: "Put in Donald."

Baloo: "I'm old square feet."

Narrator: "Fumed baloo."

Mickey Mouse: "Well, Jiminy?"

Narrator: "Jiminy considered."

Jiminy Cricket: "I only wish, sir,"

Narrator: "He said gravely,"

Jiminy Cricket: "That I'd thought of those names myself. If the hat fits..."

Mickey Mouse: "Ahem..."

Baloo, Sir Ector and Donald Duck: "He made pirates laugh at us!"

Narrator: "Accused the Disney Characters.

Mickey recovered. He'd been trying not to laugh himself."

Mickey Mouse: "Did you, Jiminy?"

Jiminy Cricket: "Certainly not, sir. No cricket would be as mean as that!"

Narrator: "Captain Hook lurked up."

Mickey Mouse: "Now, Captain Hook, you heard what Jiminy said."

Captain Hook: "I can't understand it, sir. To think that Jiminy, of all Disney Characters... I'm dreadfully grieved, sir, but know nothing."

Mickey Mouse: "I see."

Narrator: "Said Mickey.

Captain Hook squirmed, and hoped he didn't."

Mickey Mouse: "I'm sorry, Jiminy, but you must go to Hercules' station for a while. I know he will be glad to see you."

Jiminy Cricket: "As you wish, sir."

Narrator: "Jiminy trundled sadly away, while Captain Hook smirked with triumph."

A Close Shave/A Close Shave for Jiminy

Narrator: "Jiminy Cricket puffed sadly to Hercules' station."

Jiminy Cricket: "It's not fair!"

Narrator: "He complained."

Jiminy Cricket: "Captain Hook has been telling lies about me, and made Mickey Mouse and all the Disney Characters think I'm horrid."

Narrator: "Hercules smiled."

Hercules: "I know you aren't, and so does Mickey. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these pirates?"

Narrator: "Jiminy felt happier with Hercules, and set to work at once.

The pirates were silly, heavy, and noisy. The two Disney Characters had to work hard, pushing and pulling them all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill."

Jiminy Cricket: "Good-bye!"

Narrator: "Whistled Jiminy, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line.

Jiminy loved coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly, it was a guard's warning whistle!"

Pirates: "Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!"

Narrator: "Laughed the pirates."

Pirates: "We've broken away! We've broken away! Chase him! Bump him! Throw him off the road!"

Narrator: "They yelled."

Jiminy Cricket's Driver: "Hurry, Jiminy, Hurry!"

Narrator: "Said the driver. They raced through Hercules' station, but the pirates were catching up."

Jiminy Cricket's Driver: "As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually!"

Narrator: "The driver was gaining control."

Jiminy Cricket's Driver: "Another clear mile, and we'll do it!"

Jiminy Cricket: "Oh, glory, look at that!"

Narrator: "Donald was just pulling out on their line from the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash!

Jiminy Cricket's Driver: "It's up to you now, Jiminy!"

Narrator: "Cried the driver.

Jiminy put every ounce of weight and strength against the pirates."

Jiminy Cricket: "It's too late!"

Narrator: "Jiminy groaned, and shut his eyes. He veered into a siding where George Darling set up shop. He was shaving a customer."


"The silly pirates had knocked their guard down, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning.

But the pirates didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves."

Jiminy Cricket: "Beg pardon, sir."

Narrator: "Gasped Jiminy."

Jiminy Cricket: "Excuse my intrusion."

George Darling: "No, I won't!"

Narrator: "Said George Darling."

George Darling: "You've frightened my customers! I'll teach you!"

Narrator: "And he lathered Jiminy's face all over. Poor Jiminy.

Pongo was helping to pull the pirates away, when Mickey Mouse arrived."

George Darling: "I do not like Disney Charcters popping through my walls!"

Narrator: "Fumed George."

Mickey Mouse: "I appreciate your feelings,"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "But you must know that this cricket and his crew have prevented a very serious accident. It was a very close, um, shave."

George Darling: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Said George."

George Darling: "Oh! Excuse me."

Narrator: "He filled a basin of water to wash Jiminy's face."

George Darling: "I'm sorry. I didn't know you were being a brave cricket."

Jiminy Cricket: "That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either."

Mickey Mouse: "You were very brave, indeed."

Narrator: "Said Micky."

Mickey Mouse: "I'm proud of you."

Narrator: "Mickey watched the rescue operation, then he had more news for Jiminy."

Mickey Mouse: "And when you are properly washed and healed, you are coming home."

Jiminy Cricket: "Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?"

Mickey Mouse: "Of course."

Jiminy Cricket: "But sir, they don't like me. They like Captain Hook."

Mickey Mouse: "Not now. I never believed Captain Hook, so I sent him packing. The Disney Characters are sorry and want you back."

Narrator: "A few days later, when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Jiminy Cricket."

Better Late Than Never

Narrator: "The Disney Characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main road.

The arches needed strengthening. Mickey Mouse did not want to close land while the work was done. And so repairs took a long time.

The Disney Characters had to take great care when crossing the viaduct. And the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Pongo would be waiting to collect his passengers.

Pongo grew crosser and crosser."

Pongo: "Time's time!"

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Pongo: "Why should I have to keep my passengers waiting while Baloo and Donald dawdle about all day on viaducts?"

Baloo: "Don't blame me!"

Narrator: "Snorted Baloo."

Baloo: "If we hurry across the viaduct, it might collapse. And then you'd have no passengers at all. What would you do then?"

Pongo: "Make my deliveries on time for one thing!"

Narrator: "Retorted Pongo. He hurried away before Baloo could answer.

Tod was impatient too. He was timed to arrive just after Pongo. His passengers found that instead of going straight from their fox to their dalmatian, they were kept waiting till Pongo arrived.

Soon, Tod grew cross with Pongo."

Tod: "Late again!"

Narrator: "He remarked, as Pongo panted wearily in."

Tod: "We maybe friends, but I thought you could go fast, Pongo. It's time we have another race. I reckon I can beat you now."

Narrator: "Pongo growled loudly."

Pongo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "He hissed fiercely."

Pongo: "It's those main road Disney characters! They dither about on their viaduct, and they blame Mickey's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me!"

Narrator: "One day, Donald was later than ever at the junction."

Donald Duck: "I'm sorry, Pongo."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Donald Duck: "I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse."

Pongo: "It's lucky for you I'm a guarantee connection!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Pongo. Before Donald could answer, he puffed importantly away."

Pongo: "Come along, come along."

Narrator: "He panted to the ducks. Abigail and Amelia did their best, but Pongo soon found that he couldn't save much time.

Suddenly, Pongo saw Tod ahead. He didn't look well."

Pongo: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo."

Pongo: "You should be at the station by now. You're late!"

Tod: "I feel dreadful."

Narrator: "Moaned Tod."

Tod: "All upset inside, and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers, please? They'll never get home otherwise."

Pongo: "Of course."

Narrator: "Agreed Pongo. He now felt sorry for Tod, and promised to get help at the next station.

Pongo set off again. Already, he felt much more cheerful. And Tod's passengers, traveling with Abigail and Amelia, all reach home safely.

When Tod was better, he came to thank Pongo."

Tod: "I'm sorry I teased you about being late."

Narrator: "He said."

Pongo: "That's alright."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm glad I could help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all."

Narrator: "With a last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work."

Hopper/The Raccoon Twins

Narrator: "The Raccoon Twins are lost boys, and have arrived from Neverland to help Mickey Mouse, but only one boy had been expected. The twins meant well, but did cause confusion. Mickey had given them numbers; the first Raccoon Twin 9, and the second Raccoon Twin 10, but he was still planning to send one boy home.

There was a grasshopper named Hopper in the yard that had taken a dislike to Raccoon Twin #2. Things always went wrong when he had to take him out. His work was late, and he was blamed. Raccoon Twin #2 began to worry.

Raccoon Twin #1, his twin, was angry."

Raccoon Twin #1: "You're a muckle nuisance!"

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #1."

Raccoon Twin #1: "It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting!"

Hopper: "You can't."

Narrator: "Said Hopper."

Hopper: "I'm essential."

Raccoon Twin #1: "Ach! Are you?"

Narrator: "Raccoon Twin #1 burst out."

Raccoon Twin #1: "You're nothing but a screechin' and a noise when all's said and done. Spite Raccoon Twin #2, would you? Take that!"

Hopper: "Oh! Ow ow!"

Narrator: "Cried Hopper."

Raccoon #1: "There's more coming, should you misbehave."

Narrator: "Hopper behaved better after that. Until one day, Raccoon Twin #1 had an accident.

The road was slippery. He couldn't stop in time."


"Mickey was most annoyed."

Micky Mouse: "I am disappointed, Raccoon Twin #1. I did not expect such, um... clumsiness from you.

I have decided to send Raccoon Twin #2 back and keep you."

Raccoon Twin #1: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #1."

Mickey Mouse: "I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Donald will have to help with the goods work, while you are mended. Donald won't like that."

Narrator: "Mickey was right. Donald grumbled dreadfully."

Raccoon Twin #2: "Anyone would think,"

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #2."

Raccoon Twin #2: "That Raccoon Twin #1 had his accident on purpose.

I heard tell about a duck and some tar barrels."

Donald Duck: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald Duck: "It's not funny!"

Narrator: "He didn't like to be reminded of his own accident."

Raccoon Twin #2: "Well, well, well,"

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #2,"

Raccoon Twin #2: "Surely, Donald, it wasn't you. You didn't say!"

Narrator: "Donald didn't say. He slouched sulkily away."

Hopper: "He's cross."

Narrator: "Snickered Hopper."

Hopper: "We'll try to make him crosser still."

Grasshoppers: "Hold back!"

Narrator: "Giggled the other grasshoppers to each other.

Donald did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Hercules' station.

Luckily, Raccoon Twin #2 was there."

Donald Duck: "Help me up the hill, please." (Pant)

Narrator: "Panted Donald."

Donald Duck: "These grasshoppers are playing tricks."

Raccoon Twin #2: "We'll show them!"

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #2.

Slowly but surely, the snorting Disney Characters forced the grasshoppers up the hill, but Donald was losing strength."

Donald Duck: "I can't do it! I can't do it!"

Raccoon Twin #2: "Leave it to me!"

Narrator: "Shouted Raccoon Twin #2.

The guard was anxious."

Guard: "Go steady! Hopper's breaking!"

Narrator: "Hopper was in pieces.

No one had been hurt, and soon Hercules came to clear the mess. Mickey Mouse was on board."

Mickey Mouse: "I might have known it would be Raccoon Twin #2!"

Narrator: "He said."

Hercules: "Raccoon Twin #2 was grand, sir."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "Donald had no strength left, but Raccoon Twin #2 worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard."

Mickey Mouse: "Two would have been enough."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "I want to be fair, Raccoon Twin #2, but... I don't know. I really don't know."

Narrator: "Mickey was making up his mind about something. But that's another story."

The Deputation

Narrator: "Snow came early to Disneyland. It was heavier than usual. Most Disney Characters hate snow. The Raccoon Twins were used to it. Back to back, with a trailer behind them and a shovel for each of them, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forwards, patrolling the paths.

Generally, the snow slipped away easily, but sometimes they found deeper drifts.

Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try, when..."

(Baloo whistles)

Raccoon Twin #2: "Lorsh sakes, Raccoon Twin #1! It's Baloo!

Donna fash yourself, Baloo! Wait a while, we'll have you out!"

Narrator: "Baloo was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The twins were glum. They told him that Mickey Mouse was returning soon."

The Raccoon Twins: "He'll send us back for sure!"

Piglet: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Sir Ector: "A lot of nonsense about a broken signal box."

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "That Hopper, too."

Narrator: "Put in Donald."

Donald Duck: "Good riddance! That's what I say."

Baloo: "They were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Baloo."

Baloo: "It isn't fair!"

Narrator: "They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what.

Piglet decided to talk to Hercules about it."

Hercules: "What you need,"

Narrator: "Said Hercules,"

Hercules: "Is a deputation."

Narrator: "He explained what that was.

Piglet ran back quickly."

Piglet: "Hercules says we need... a, a disputation!"

Sir Ector: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "The question is.."

Baloo: "What is a... desperation?"

Narrator: "Asked Baloo."

Piglet: "It's when Disney Characters tell Mickey Mouse something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Jiminy Cricket: "Did you say 'Tell Mickey Mouse?'"

Narrator: "Asked Jiminy thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Sir Ector: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "That Piglet be our... um... disputation."

Piglet: "I?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Piglet."

Piglet: "I can't!"

Baloo: "Rubbish, Piglet!"

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo: "It's easy.

Sir Ector: "That's settled, then."

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector.

Poor Piglet wished it wasn't."

Mickey Mouse: "Hello, Piglet. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Piglet jumped."

Piglet: "Uh, uh, yes sir, yes sir, please sir."

Mickey Mouse: "You look nervous, Piglet. What's the matter?"

Piglet: "Please sir, uh, they've made me a desperation, sir. To speak to you, sir. I don't like it, sir."

Narrator: "Mickey pondered."

Mickey Mouse: "Do you mean a deputation, Piglet?"

Piglet: "Yes, sir, please, sir. It's The Raccoon Twins, sir. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be killed, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Uh, please, sir, don't send them away."

Mickey Mouse: "Thank you, Piglet. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Mickey spoke to the Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "I've had a... deputation. I understand your feelings, but I do not approve of interference."

Narrator: "He paused impressively."

Mickey Mouse: "Raccoon Twins, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall each have some new clothes."

Narrator: "The twins were surprised."

The Raccoon Twins: "Thank you, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "But your clothes will have your names printed on them. We'll have no more mistakes."

The Raccoon Twins: "Thank you, sir. Does this mean that the both of us..."

Narrator: "Mickey smiled."

Mickey Mouse: "It means..."

Narrator: "But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles."

(All the Disney Characters cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The twins were here to stay."

Pongo Comes to Breakfast

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatians has worked his route for many years, and knows it very well."

Pongo's Driver: "You know just where to stop, Pongo."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "You could almost manage it without me."

Narrator: "Pongo had become conceited. He didn't realize his driver was joking.

Later, he boasted to the others."

Pongo: "Driver says I don't need him now."

Piglet: "Don't be so daft!"

Narrator: "Snorted Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "I'd never go without my driver."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck, earnestly."

Friar Tuck: "I'd be frightened."

Pongo: "Puh!"

Narrator: "Boasted Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm not scared!"

Friar Tuck: "You'd never dare!"

Pongo: "I would then, you'll see."

Narrator: "Next morning, the firelighter came. Pongo drowsed comfortably, and the warmth spread through his body.

Piglet and Friar Tuck were still asleep. Pongo suddenly remembered."

Pongo: "Silly stick-in-the-muds!"

Narrator: "He chuckled."

Pongo: "I'll show them. Driver said I could manage without him. I'll just go out, then I'll stop and WHEESH! That'll make them jump."

Narrator: "Pongo thought he was being clever. Really, he was only moving because a careless cleaner had meddled with his body. He soon found his mistake. He tried to wheesh, but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare look at what was coming next; there was Governor Ratcliffe's house. Governor Ratcliffe was just about to have breakfast."

Pongo: "Horrors!"

Narrator: "Cried Pongo, and shut his eyes."


"The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Pongo had collected a bush on his travels. He peered into the room through its leaves. He couldn't speak.

Governor Ratcliffe was furious. The Evil Queen picked up her plate."

The Evil Queen: "You miserable dalmatian!"

Narrator: "She scolded."

The Evil Queen: "Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I shall have to cook some more!"

Narrator: "She banged the door.

More plaster fell. This time, it fell on Pongo. Pongo felt depressed.

Workmen propped up the house with strong poles, and laid a path through the garden.

Meanwhile, the Raccoon Twins arrived."

The Raccoon Twins: "D'n' fess yourself, Pongo, we'll soon have you back on the path!"

Narrator: "They laughed.

The Raccoon Twins, working hard, managed to haul Pongo back to safety. Bits of fencing, a bush, and a broken window frame festuned his front, which was badly twisted. The twins laughed and left him.

Pongo was in disgrace.

There was worse to come."

Mickey Mouse: "You are a very naughty dalmatian!"

Pongo (muffled): "I know, sir. I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Pongo's voice was muffled behind his bush."

Mickey Mouse: "You must go to the workshop and have your front mended, it will be a long job."

Pongo: "Yes, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "Meanwhile, a woman in a fur coat will do your work."

Pongo: "A w-w-woman, sir?"

Narrator: "Pongo spluttered."

Mickey Mouse: "Yes, Pongo. Women always stay in their houses until they are wanted. Women never galavant off to breakfast in governors' houses."

Cruella DeVil

Narrator: "Piglet and Friar Tuck were worried. Pongo's recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Micky Mouse was waiting for them with important news."

Mickey Mouse: "Here,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Is Cruella DeVil, the woman who has come to help while Pongo is... indisposed."

Piglet: "Please, sir,

Narrator: "Asked Piglet."

Piglet: "Will she go, sir, when Pongo comes back, sir?"

Mickey Mouse: "That depends."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable."

Piglet and Grandpa Dave: "Yes, sir. We'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Said the Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want to rest after her journey."

Narrator: "Cruella was hard to please. She shuddered at the shed."

Cruella DeVil: "This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves."

Narrator: "Next, they tried the carriage shed."

Cruella DeVil: "This is better,"

Narrator: "Said Cruella,"

Cruella DeVil: "But whatever is that rubbish?"

Narrator: "The 'rubbish' turned out to be Abigal, Amelia and Jasmine, who were most offended."

Abigal, Amelia and Jasmine: "We won't stay here to be insulted!"

Narrator: "They fumed.

Piglet and Grandpa Dave had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.

The Disney Characters woke next morning, feeling exhausted. Cruella, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful."

Cruella DeVil: "Oooh! Oooh!"

Narrator: "She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station."

Cruella DeVil: "Look at me,"

Narrator: "She purred to the passengers."

Cruella DeVil: "I'm the latest woman; highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Pongo's bumpy old Abigal and Amelia now."

Narrator: "The passengers waited for Cruella to start, but she didn't.

She saw that a milk churn was about to be handed to her, and was most indignant."

Cruella DeVil: "Do they expect me to carry that?"

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Surely,"

Narrator: "Said her driver,"

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "You can carry one churn."

Cruella DeVil: "I won't!"

Narrator: "Said Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "Piglet can do it! He loves messing about with pirates."

Narrator: "She began to shudder violently."

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said her driver."

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Come on now, back down!"

Narrator: "Cruella lurched backwards. She was so cross, that she blew a fuse."

Cruella DeVil: "Told you!"

Narrator: "She said, and stopped.

Everyone argued with her, but it was no use."

Cruella DeVil: "It's fitter's order."

Narrator: "She said."

Passengers: "What is?"

Cruella DeVil: "My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week, and examines me carefully. 'Cruella', He says, 'Never, never carry. You're highly sprung, and carrying is bad for your swerves.'

So that's how it is!"

Narrator: "Finished Cruella."

Stationmaster: "Stuff and nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said the stationmaster."

Shunter: "I can't understand."

Narrator: "Said the shunter."

Shunter: "Whatever made Mickey Mouse send us such a feeble..."

Cruella DeVil: "Feeble? Feeble?!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "Let me..."

Passengers: "Stop arguing!"

Narrator: "Grumbled the passengers."

Passengers: "We're late already."

Narrator: "So they took away the churn, and Cruella felt very pleased with herself. She could now enjoy her journey."

Cruella DeVil: "That's a good story."

Narrator: "She chuckled."

Cruella DeVil: "I'll do just what work I choose, and no more!"

Narrator: "But she said it to herself."

Piglet's Predicament

Narrator: "Cruella DeVil's work in the countryside was full of surprises. She was frightened of bulls and cows, and she remained very lazy and stubborn.

One day, Friar Tuck brought Jasmine to the station where Piglet was grumpily arranging."

Friar Tuck: "Hello, Piglet. I see Cruella's left the milk behind again."

Piglet: "I'll have to make a special journey with it, I suppose. Anyone would think I'd nothing to do!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "Tell you what,"

Narrator: "Replied Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "I'll take the milk, you fetch my pirates."

Narrator: "The drivers and stationmaster agreed.

Piglet had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the pirates about."

Piglet: "Hurry along!"

Narrator: "He said.

The pirates grumbled to each other."

Pirates: "This is Friar Tuck's place! Piglet's got no right to poke his head in here and push us around."

Narrator: "They whispered and passed the word.

Pirates: "Pay Piglet out! Pay Piglet out!"

Piglet: "Come along,"

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "No nonsense!"

Pirates: "We'll give him nonsense!"

Narrator: "Giggled the pirates.

But they followed so quietly, that Piglet thought they were under control.

Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead;

All Disney Characters stop to pin down brakes."

Piglet: "Peep peep! Brakes, guard, please!"

Narrator: "But before he could check them, the pirates surged forward."

Pirates: "On! On!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Piglet: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "Whistled Piglet.

The man on duty rushed to warn traffic with his red flag, but was too late to switch Piglet to the runaway siding.

Frantically trying to grip the road, Piglet slid into the yard."

Piglet: "Peep peep! Look out!"


Narrator: "Piglet's driver and fireman had jumped clear, but Piglet was stranded.

Next day, Mickey Mouse arrived. Friar Tuck and Cruella had helped to clear the wreckage, but Piglet remained on his perch of pirates."

Mickey Mouse: "We must now try,"

Narrator: "Said Mickey,"

Mickey Mouse: "To run the road with Friar Tuck and a woman. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Piglet."

Piglet: "I am sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Mickey Mouse: "You can stay there til we are ready. Perhaps it will teach you to be careful with pirates."

Narrator: "Piglet sighed. The pirate groaned beneath his feet. He quite understood about awkward predicaments.

Mickey spoke severely to Cruella, too."

Mickey Mouse: "My Disney Characters work hard. I send lazy Disney Characters away."

Narrator: "Cruella was ashamed."

Mickey Mouse: "However, Friar Tuck says you worked hard after Piglet's accident, so you shall have another chance."

Cruella DeVil: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "I will work hard. Friar Tuck says he'll help me."

Mickey Mouse: "Excellent. What Friar Tuck doesn't know about road problems isn't worth knowing. Our Friar Tuck's an experienced badger."

Narrator: "Next day, Pongo came back, and Piglet was sent to be mended.

Abigal and Amelia were delighted to see Pongo again, and he took them for a run at once.

All are now friends, and Friar Tuck has taught Cruella a great deal. She shooed a cow off the line the other day all by herself. That shows you, doesn't it?"

The Lionsel

Narrator: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum are twins. Each has a hat, a yellow shirt and red pants. Their pirates help them deliver china clay. It is needed for pottery, paint, paper, and many other things.

The twins are now kept busy, taking the pirates for Disney Characters on the main line, and for ships in the harbor.

One morning, they arranged some pirates, and went away for more.

They returned to find them all gone. The twins were most surprised.

Their drivers examined a footprint."

Drivers: "That's a lion."

Narrator: "They said."

Tweedledee: "It's a what-ll?"

Narrator: "Asked Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "A lionsel, I think."

Narrator: "Replied Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "There's a notice about them in our house."

Tweedledee: "Coughs and sneezes spread lionsels."

Tweedledum: "You had a cough in your head yesterday. It's your fault the lionsel came."

Tweedledee: "It isn't!"

Tweedledum: "It is!"

Drivers: "Stop arguing, you two."

Narrator: "Laughed their drivers."

Drivers: "Let's go and rescue our pirates."

Narrator: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum were horrified."

Tweedledee and Tweedledum: "But the lionsel will magic us away, like the pirates!"

Drivers: "He won't magic us."

Narrator: "Replied their drivers."

Drivers: "We'll more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know your twins, so we'll take away your names and numbers, and then this is what we'll do."

Narrator: "Puffing hard, the twins set off on their journey to find the lion.

They were looking forward to playing tricks on him.

Creeping into the yard, they found the lion on a siding with the missing pirates. Tweedledum hid behind, but Tweedledee went boldly alongside.

The lion looked up."

Mufasa: "Do you mind?"

Tweedledee: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Tweedledee."

Tweedledee: "I do. I want my pirates, please."

Mufasa: "These are mine."

Narrator: "Said the lion."

Mufasa: "Go away!"

Narrator: "Tweedledee pretended to be frightened."

Tweedledee: "You're a big bully."

Narrator: "He whimpered."

Tweedledee: "You'll be sorry!"

Narrator: "He ran back and hid behind the pirates on the other side.

Tweedledum now came forward."

Tweedledum: "Pirate stealer!"

Narrator: "Hissed Tweedledum. He ran away, too. Tweedledee took his place.

This went on and on until the lion's eyes nearly popped out."

Mufasa: "Stop! You're making me giddy!"

Narrator: "The two twins gazed at him."

Mufasa: "Are there two of you?"

Tweedledee and Tweedledum: "Yes, we're twins."

Mufasa: "I might have known it!"

Narrator: "Just then, Hercules bustled up."

Hercules: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum, why are you playing here?"

Tweedledee: "We're not playing!"

Narrator: "Protested Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "We're rescuing our pirates."

Narrator: "Squeaked Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "Even you don't take our pirates without asking, but this lionsel did."

Hercules: "There's no cause to be rude."

Narrator: "Said Hercules severely."

Hercules: "This lion is a lion king."

Narrator: "The twins were abashed."

Tweedledee: "We're sorry, Mr., uh..."

Mufasa: "Never mind."

Narrator: "The lion smiled."

Mufasa: "Call me Mufasa. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the pirates."

Hercules: "That's all right, then."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "Now off you go, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Fetch Mufasa's pirates, then you can take this lot.

There's no real harm in them,"

Narrator: "He said to Mufasa."

Hercules: "But they're maddening at times."

Narrator: "Mufasa chuckled."

Mufasa: "Maddening,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mufasa: "Is the word."

Wrong Road

Narrator: "Pongo's route is important and so is Hercules'. But their paths and bridges are not so strong as those on the main road. Mickey Mouse does not allow the heavier Disney Characters like Sir Ector to walk on them.

But one day, the way Sir Ector was talking, you would have thought Mickey had given this order for quite another reason."

Sir Ector: "It's not fair!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Hercules: "What isn't fair?"

Narrator: "Ask Hercules."

Sir Ector: "Letting lions do man work."

Hercules: "Never mind, Sir Ector. I'm sure Mufasa will let you take his pirates sometimes."

Narrator: "Sir Ector spluttered."

Sir Ector: "I won't take Mufasa's dirty pirates! I won't walk on branch roads!"

Hercules: "Why not? It would be a nice change."

Sir Ector: "Mickey Mouse would never approve."

Narrator: "Huffed Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Branch roads are vulgar!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector puffed away. Hercules chuckled and followed him to the train station.

Every evening the two Disney Characters took two sets of fast flowers from the station. Sir Ector always leaves first with an express for the main road. Hercules follows five minutes later with his flowers for the branch road. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight, there was trouble. A lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Sir Ector to start. The fireman looked back towards the back of the line and saw something green waving."

Sir Ector's Fireman: "Right away, mate!"

Narrator: "He thought the guard had waved his flag. Sir Ector started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the guard all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross.

To make matters worse, by the time Sir Ector had been stopped and brought back, Hercules was already late with his flowers. So now, he set off first.

But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Hercules along the main road. Sir Ector was sent along the branch, and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbor.

Next morning, Tweedledee and Tweedledum peeped into the yard. There were no pirates for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Sir Ector would be much better fun."

Tweedledee: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Asked Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "Shh!"

Narrator: "Whispered Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "It's Sir Ector."

Tweedledee: "It looks like Sir Ector, but it can't be. Sir Ector never comes on the branch road. He thinks them vulgar."

Narrator: "Sir Ector pretend he hadn't heard."

Tweedledum: If it isn't Sir Ector,"

Narrator: "Said Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "It's just a pile of old iron."

Tweedledee: "Which we better take to the scrapyard."

Tweedledum: "No Tweedledee. This lot's useless for scrap. We'll take it to the harbor and dumb it in the sea."

Narrator: "Sir Ector was alarmed."

Sir Ector: "I am Sir Ector! Stop! Stop!"

Narrator: "When Mufasa suddenly arrived, Sir Ector thought him the most beautiful site he'd ever seen."

Sir Ector: "Mufasa, my dear lion, save me."

Narrator: "Mufasa quickly sized up the situation and threatened to take away the pirates he brought for Tweedledee and Tweedledum. This made the twins behave at once. Sir Ector thought he was wonderful."

Sir Ector: "Those little demons. How do you do it?"

Mufasa: "Ah, well."

Narrator: "Said Mufasa."

Mufasa: "It's just a knack."

Narrator: "Sir Ector still believes that Mufasa saved his life. But we know the twins were only teasing. Don't we?"

Hercules' Exploit

Narrator: "Tod the Fox was giving some visitors a tour of Disneyland.

It was their last afternoon, and Hercules was preparing to take them to meet Tweedledee and Tweedledum. He found it hard to start the heavy flowers."

Baloo: "Did you see him straining?"

Narrator: "Asked Baloo."

Donald Duck: "Positively painful."

Narrator: "Remarked Donald."

Sir Ector: "Just pathetic!"

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "He should give up and be preserved before it's too late."

Jiminy Cricket: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "Burst out Jiminy."

Jiminy: "You're all jealous. Hercules' better than any of you."

Mufasa: "You're right, Jiminy."

Narrator: "Said Mufasa."

Mufasa: "Hercules' old, but he'll surprise us all."

Hercules: "I've done it! We're off! I've done it! We're off!"

Narrator: "Said Hercules, as he finally puffed out of the station.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they took the party to Wonderland in a trailer special.

Everyone had a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed.

Then, Hercules took the visitors home.

On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffeted Hercules. His sand box failed, and his fireman went in front dropping sand on the road by hand.

Suddenly, Hercules' feet slipped fiercely, and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time."

Hercules' Driver: "One of your shoes broke, Hercules."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Hercules' Driver: "We've taken your other shoe off. Now you're like an old-fashioned man. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight."

Hercules: "I'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Promised Hercules. Hercules puffed and pulled his hardest, but his feet kept slipping and he could not start the heavy flowers. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and guard went along the train making adjustments between the flowers."

Hercules' Driver: "We've loosened the couplings, Hercules. Now you can pick your flowers up one by one, just as you do with pirates."

Hercules: "That'll be much easier."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first flower moving helped to start the second, and the second helped the third."

Hercules: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Hercules."

Hercules' Driver: "Steady, boy!"

Narrator: "Warned his driver."

Hercules' Driver: "Well done, boy! You've got them! You've got them!"

Narrator: "And he listened happily to Hercules' steady beat as he forged slowly but surely ahead.

At last, battered, weary, but unbeaten, Hercules steamed in. Baloo was waiting for the visitors with the special flowers."

Hercules: "Peep! Peep!"

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse angrily pointed to clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Hercules, his driver and fireman.

Jiminy and Mufasa saw to it that Hercules was left in peace. Sir Ector and Donald remained respectfully silent."

Ghost Pig/Piglet's Ghostly Trick

Piglet: "And every year on a date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul."

Pongo: "Piglet, what are you talking about?"

Piglet: "The ghost pig. Driver saw it last night."

Pongo and Friar Tuck: "Where?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo and Friar Tuck."

Piglet: "He didn't say. Ooh, it makes my feet wobble to think of it."

Pongo: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're just a silly little piglet. I'm not scared!"

Piglet: "Pongo didn't believe in your ghost."

Narrator: "Said Piglet next morning. His driver laughed."

Piglet's Driver: "Neither do I. It was a pretend ghost on television."

Narrator: "Piglet was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbor.

Piglet knew where he was, even in the dark."

Piglet: "Crowe's farm crossing. We shan't be long now."

Narrator: "He liked running at night. The path hummed and the light showed green. But a broken cartload of lyme lay ahead. Sam the farmer had just gone for help.


Piglet broke the cart to smithereens. Lyme flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box.

Piglet's driver explained what had happened."

Signalman: "I'll see to it."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "But you better clean Piglet, or people will think he's a ghost."

Narrator: "Piglet chuckled."

Piglet: "Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scare Pongo. That'll teach him to say I'm a silly little piglet."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck promised to help.

Pongo was getting ready for his evening run."

Friar Tuck: "Piglet's had an accident."

Narrator: "Cried Friar Tuck."

Pongo: "Poor piglet."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Botheration! That means I'll be late."

Friar Tuck: "They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse."

Pongo: "Out with it, Friar Tuck! I can't wait all evening."

Friar Tuck: "I've just seen something."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "It looked like Piglet's ghost. It said it was, was coming here t-t-t-to warn us."

Pongo: "Huh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Friar Tuck. I'll take care of you."

Piglet: "Peep, peep! Pip, pip, pip, peep! Let me in. Let me in."

Narrator: "Wailed Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "No, no. Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim."

Piglet: "I'll chuff, and I'll puff, and I'll break your door in."

Pongo: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pongo."

Pongo: "It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Abigail and Amelia."

Narrator: "It was morning when Pongo returned."

Friar Tuck: "Where have you been?"

Narrator: "Asked Friar Tuck."

Pongo: "Ah, well."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I knew you'd be sad about Piglet and I, uh, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the goods shed and...

Oh, sorry. Can't stop. Got to see a flower about a dalmatian."

Narrator: "Piglet was not in the worst for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything."

Piglet: "Well, well, well. What do you know about that?"

Friar Tuck: "Anyone would think,"

Narrator: "Chuckled Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "That our Pongo had just seen a ghost."

Woolly Bear

Narrator: "In summer, the gangers cut the long grass along the road, raking it up for heaps to dry in the sun.

At this time of year, Piglet stops where they have been cutting. The men give them to the pirates, and he takes them to the station.

Friar Tuck then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock."

Piglet: "Wheesh!"

Narrator: "Piglet gave a ghostly whistle."

Piglet: "Don't be frightened, Pongo!"

Narrator: "He laughed."

Piglet: "It's only me!"

Pongo: "Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're like..."

Piglet: "Ugly, indeed! I'm..."

Pongo: "A pink caterpillar with magenta stripes!"

Narrator: "Continued Pongo firmly."

Pongo: "You crawl like one, too."

Piglet: "I don't!"

Pongo: "Who's been late every afternoon this week?"

Piglet: "It's the hay!"

Pongo: "I can't help that."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Time's time, and Mickey Mouse relies on me to keep it! I can't if you crawl about in the hay till' all hours!"

Piglet: "'Pink caterpillar' indeed!"

Narrator: "Fumed Piglet. He set off to collect some hay to take to the harbor."

Piglet: "Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly everyone. Anyway, my stripes ares better than Pongo's spots. Pongo says I'm always late."

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Piglet: "I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Pongo? He can always catch up time further on."

Narrator: "All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early.

Then came trouble."


"A crate of treacle was upset all over Piglet.

Piglet was cross.

He was still sticky when he puffed away.

The wind was blowing fiercely."

Piglet's Driver: "Look at that!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed the driver.

The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the road. The line climbed here."

Piglet's Driver: "Take a run at it, Piglet!"

Narrator: "His driver replied.

Piglet gathered speed. but the hay made the road slippery, and his feet wouldn't grip. Time after time, he stalled with spinning feet and had to wait till' the path ahead was cleared before he could start again.

Everyone was waiting. Pongo seethed impatiently."

Pongo: "Ten minutes late! I warned him! Passengers will complain, and Mickey Mouse..."

(Piglet whistles)

Narrator: "Then, they all saw Piglet. They laughed and shouted."

(Passengers laugh)

Piglet: "Sorry I'm late!"

Narrator: "Piglet panted."

Pongo: "Look what's crawled out of the hay!"

Narrator: "Teased Pongo."

Piglet: "What's wrong?"

Narrator: "Asked Piglet."

Pongo: "Talk about hairy caterpillars!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo."

Pongo: "It's worth being late to have seen you."

Narrator: "When Piglet came home, his driver showed him what he looked like in a mirror."

Piglet: "Oh, d-d-d-dear! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just like a woolly bear! Please clean me before Friar Tuck comes."

Narrator: "But it was no good. Pongo told Friar Tuck all about it.

Instead of talking about sensible things like 'playing ghosts', Pongo and Friar Tuck made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawl about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Piglet thought they were being really silly indeed."

Pongo and the Missing Christmas Tree

Narrator: "It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected in Disneyland. All the Disney characters were busy with the final preparations. Mickey Mouse wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration.

Mickey was now waiting impatiently for Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "Quickly now,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Pongo. Jiminy Cricket can look after Abigail and Amelia until you get back."

Pongo: "Will we be able to sing carols, too?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "We'll see."

Narrator: "Promised Mickey."

Pongo: "It would be nice to sing carols again."

Narrator: "Sighed Pongo, as he set off on his important mission.

Pongo collected the tree safely, but large snowdrifts lay ahead."

Pongo: "I mustn't be late."

Narrator: "He thought."

Pongo: "Mickey is relying on me."

Narrator: "Barking bravely, Pongo tried to move, but he couldn't. There was worse to come!

Poor Pongo was snowed under!

Meanwhile, the other Disney characters waited and waited. They were grumbling about Pongo for being late."

Mickey Mouse: "Silence!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Pongo left the works safely, but snow has brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded."

Narrator: "The Disney characters now felt sorry for Pongo, and cold but confident, the twins set off to the rescue.

Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest."

Pongo: "Help!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "Hush!""

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #1."

Raccoon Twin #1: "I can hear something."

Raccoon Twin #2: "Probably the wind."

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #2."

Pongo: "Help!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "No, listen!"

Narrator: "Insisted Raccoon Twin #1."

Pongo: "Over here!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "Och! It's Pongo! Come on, the poor wee dalmatian must be frozen to the fur in there!"

Narrator: "When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the heavy drifts of snow. Pongo's driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Pongo and the precious Christmas tree were freed from the snowdrift.

Then, they set off once more to finish their long journey.

Mickey Mouse greeted them warmly."

Mickey Mouse: "As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now!"

Narrator: "At the big station, all was soon ready."

Mickey Mouse: "One, two, three!"

Narrator: "Suddenly, like magic, the station was flooded with lights."

Mickey Mouse: "Ladies, gentlemen, and children, I give you three cheers for Pongo the Dalmatian and all his friends who have made this occasion possible!"

Narrator: "Suddenly, there was a strange flapping sound. Piglet and Friar Tuck smiled. They knew who it was.

With landing lights shining brightly, Owl touched down gently in the snow, bringing the greatest surprise of all; Father Christmas! Everyone cheered, and the party began.

Pongo: "It's no fun getting stuck in the snow,"

Narrator: "Whispered Pongo,"

Pongo: "But it was worth it for this party. Happy Christmas, Piglet, Happy Christmas, everyone!"
