Spike Gets It Right

Narrator: "It had been a stormy night in Ponyville. Telegraph poles had blown down. Tiles had blown off the station roofs. And branches had fallen onto the lines. All over the town, the storm had made a terrible mess.

Hoity Toity came to the library."

Hoity Toity: "The storm has caused confusion and delay."

Narrator: "He boomed."

Hoity Toity: "So you must all be really useful animals."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'll be the most useful animal!"

Narrator: "Boasted Cranky."

Big Macintosh: "No, I will!"

Narrator: "Sniffed Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "I'm the fastest. I'll do the most journeys."

Narrator: "Spike hoped he could finish his special delivery as quickly as possible. He wanted to be the most useful animal of all.

Soon, all the animals were walking away from the library.

Cranky went to the town hall to pick up the workmen.

Big Mac went to the goods yard to collect telegraph poles.

Braeburn trundled to collect new roof tiles.

And Spike went to the train station.

Igneous Rock Pie was waiting for Spike. Next to him were boxes and boxes of newly laid eggs."

Igneous Rock Pie: "These fresh eggs are needed across the town."

Narrator: "Said Igneous Rock Pie. The station staff quickly loaded Spike's wagons with the eggs, and the Spike was raring to go."

Igneous Rock Pie: "My eggs must be delivered safely."

Narrator: "Said Igneous Rock Pie."

Igneous Rock Pie: "So I am coming to make sure you go slowly and carefully."

Spike: "Slowly?"

Narrator: "Wheeshed Spike sadly. He wanted to finish his job quickly and make lots of journeys. Spike gave one sad whistle, and slowly pulled away.

Spike trundled on. He huffed and puffed as gently as he could.

Spike had to stop at a crossing. Big Mac raced by."

Big Macintosh: "Fastest and best!"

Narrator: "He chirruped. Big Mac looked very happy. Spike felt very sad.

Spike pulled into the general store. Cranky was waiting. He was carrying workmen. They were fixing the store roof. The staff unloading four boxes of eggs for the store."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "How many journeys have you done?"

Narrator: "Asked Cranky brightly."

Spike: "This is my first."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Huffed Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm on my third. I'm as brown as a rocket and twice as fast!"

Narrator: "And he steamed quickly out of the station. Spike was upset. He wanted to go fast more than ever. Now the eggs were unloaded, and Spike chuffed slowly out of the station.

Spike puffed across the countryside, very, very slowly.

Then Spike saw Braeburn drinking some water in a siding. His wagons were full of roof tiles. Braeburn was having a wonderful day."

Braeburn: "I'm on my second journey!"

Narrator: "He whistled proudly. Spike was very sad. Braeburn rushed past him. It made Spike want to go faster than ever."

Spike: "Even Braeburn has made more journeys than me."

Narrator: "He moaned."

Spike: "It's not fair! I can be fast and careful."

Narrator: "So Spike started to speed up."

Spike: "Fast and careful, fast and careful."

Narrator: "He huffed happily. But Spike was going so fast, he wasn't being careful. Igneous Rock Pie was worried."

Igneous Rock Pie: "Slow down, Spike!"

Narrator: "He called."

Igneous Rock Pie: "You will break my eggs."

Narrator: "But Spike was going so quickly, he didn't hear Igneous Rock Pie. And he didn't slow down. He went even faster. The eggs started to bounce in their boxes.

Then Spike changed paths. It caused a big bump. The eggs were breaking!

Spike came to a junction. He had to slow down."

Igneous Rock Pie: "Stop, Spike!"

Narrator: "Cried Igneous Rock Pie."

Igneous Rock Pie: "You have broken my eggs!"

Narrator: "This time Spike did hear Igneous Rock Pie, and he stopped right away."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "He cried. But Igneous Rock Pie was still cross. Spike felt bad."

Spike: "I'm sorry."

Narrator: "He whistled."

Spike: "I just wanted to be really useful."

Narrator: "Igneous Rock Pie checked his eggs. Luckily, only a few were broken. Now Spike knew he had to go slowly. So he pulled away as gently as he could.

Spike headed to Ponyville Docks. Suddenly he heard an impatient whistle. Cranky was behind him. He blew his whistle loudly. But Spike knew he couldn't speed up."

Spike: "Sometimes going slowly can be just as important as going fast."

Narrator: "Said Spike. And he puffed carefully on.

That evening, Hoity Toity came to the library. He looked very pleased."

Hoity Toity: "You have all worked hard and been really useful animals."

Narrator: "He said. The animals were very happy, except for Spike. He was thinking about the broken eggs."

Spike: "I only made one journey, sir."

Narrator: "He said sadly."

Spike: "And I broke Igneous Rock Pie's eggs."

Hoity Toity: "But most of the eggs were delivered safely."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Igneous Rock Pie gave the broken ones to me. And I love having scrambled eggs for my breakfast. You, Spike,"

Narrator: "He added."

Hoity Toity: "Are a really useful dragon."

Narrator: "Spike just beamed."

Rarity's New Route

Narrator: "It was summertime in Ponyville. All the animals were very busy. They carried freight and passengers up and down the paths.

Hoity Toity came to see Rarity."

Hoity Toity: "I am opening some new routes for the summer."

Narrator: "He announced."

Hoity Toity: "Rarity, you will take the Flour Mill Special."

Rarity: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Rarity. She was pleased.

Rarity stopped to drink water on the way to the flour mill. But Cranky was already there."

Rarity: "Hoity Toity has given me the Flour Mill Special."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You're lucky."

Narrator: "Cranky huffed."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I have to do the Black Loch Run."

Rarity: "Why don't you like going to Black Loch?"

Narrator: "Asked Rarity."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "There are boulders all over the path."

Narrator: "He moaned."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "They bash your hooves and scratch your body. And there's the Black Loch Monster!"

Rarity: "What's the Black Loch Monster?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Nobody knows."

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Black figures move in the water and then they disappear."

Rarity: "Ooohhhhh!"

Narrator: "And Cranky puffed away. Rarity was pleased she didn't have to go to Black Loch.

At the flour mill, the flour had been given to changelings. Rarity was hooked up. Then she puffed across the countryside to the bakery.

But the changelings saw a chance for mischief."

Changelings: "Hold back, hold back!"

Narrator: "They screeched. Rarity pulled as hard as she could, but the changelings made her go very slowly.

Rarity was late delivering the flour, so there would be no fresh bread that day. Hoity Toity was cross."

Hoity Toity: "This means I would have any toast or muffins for breakfast. If you are late again, you will have to do the Black Loch Run instead of Cranky."

Narrator: "Rarity didn't want to have her buffers based by boulders. And she didn't want to see the Black Loch Monster."

Rarity: "I must get the flour to the bakery on time."

Narrator: "Rarity puffed.

The next morning, the changelings tricked her again."

Changelings: "Off we go, off we go!"

Narrator: "They chuckled. But they weren't hooked up properly."

Changelings: "Mustn't be late, mustn't be late."

Narrator: "So Rarity puffed quickly away. But only half the changelings went with her.

Rarity arrived at the bakery."

Stationmaster: "But you've only brought half the flour!"

Narrator: "The stationmaster cried. So Rarity had to go back for the rest of the changelings."

Rarity: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Rarity cried."

Rarity: "I don't want to get the Black Loch Run."

Narrator: "When Rarity arrived at the mill, the changelings were more troublesome than ever."

Changelings: "Rarity the late unicorn, Rarity the late unicorn!"

Narrator: "They sang. This made Rarity very cross, and she biffed them, very hard."

Changelings: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "They cried. And they splashed into the duck pond."


"Rarity was covered in a floury mess.

That evening, Hoity Toity came to see Rarity."

Hoity Toity: "Rarity, you have caused confusion and delay!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity said."

Hoity Toity: "Now, you are to take over the Black Loch Run."

Narrator: "Rarity was very unhappy."

Spike: "Wait until you've tried it."

Narrator: "Spike puffed."

Spike: "The Black Loch Run might be nice."

Rarity: "I don't think so."

Narrator: "Rarity moaned."

Rarity: "Bashed buffers and a big monster. It sounds miserable to me."

Narrator: "The next morning, Rarity puffed sadly to the station. Lots of excited children and vacationers climbed on board."

Rarity: "They're all looking forward to their vacation."

Narrator: "She thought."

Rarity: "I mustn't let them down."

Narrator: "Soon, Rarity was walking up hills and through valleys."

Rarity: "I bet it won't last."

Narrator: "She said to herself.

Rarity reached the murky waters of Black Loch."

Rarity: "Ohhh. That's where the monster's supposed to be."

Narrator: "She puffed nervously. Then there was trouble. Rocks fell and blocked the line."

Rarity: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Rarity had to wait for help."

Rarity: "I knew I wouldn't like this route!"

Narrator: "She huffed.

Suddenly, she saw something dark and mysterious moving in the water."

Rarity: "And now the monster's coming!"

Narrator: "Rarity gasped.

Rarity was scared. Her body quivered and her horn rattled. She wanted to race away."

Rarity: "I never want to see Black Loch again!"

Narrator: "She cried. But Rarity thought of the children with the rabbit behind her. She was determined to get them to their vacation, whatever it took.

At last, the water settled, and Rarity saw what the monster really was."

Rarity: "It's a family of seals!"

Narrator: "Rarity was delighted. The children were delighted, too.

Soon, the path was cleared. Rarity walked on through the countryside. The children would reach their vacation on time.

That evening, Spike and Rarity both stopped to watch the seals."

Rarity: "You were right."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "Black Loch is a nice route after all."

Pipsqueak's Big Mistake

Narrator: "Pipsqueak is a little white filly who can push and pull. He pulls both passengers and freight. At the docks, and at the quarry. Pipsqueak's favorite job is carrying the mail. But sometimes Pipsqueak has so much to do, he ends up running late.

One evening, Pipsqueak arrived late at Ponyville Docks."

Dock Manager: "You're late again, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said the dock manager."

Dock Manager: "I will have to speak to Hoity Toity."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was upset.

Pipsqueak returned to the library. The other animals were already asleep. Then Pipsqueak heard some voices on the other side of the library. It was Hoity Toity. And he was talking to Pipsqueak's driver. Pipsqueak tried not to listen, but he couldn't help himself."

Hoity Toity: "Pipsqueak has been late too often this week."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "He must go to the scrap yards tomorrow."

Pipsqueak: "Hoity Toity wants to scrap me!"

Narrator: "Gasped Pipsqueak. Pipsqueak worried all night long.

The next morning, the sun shone and the birds sang, but Pipsqueak was too upset to notice."

Pipsqueak: "Hoity Toity wants to scrap me!"

Narrator: "He cried."

Pipsqueak: "And all because I was late."

Spike: "Hoity Toity wouldn't scrap a really useful animal."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "And you, Pipsqueak, are a really useful pony."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak felt better, until he noticed the time."

Pipsqueak: "I'm going to be late!"

Narrator: "He cried. Pipsqueak wheeshed away. If he was on time, maybe Hoity Toity wouldn't send him to the scrap yards.

Pipsqueak's first job was collecting pipes from Ponyville Docks. But when he arrived, Gustave was still unloading."

Pipsqueak: "Hurry up, slow coach!"

Narrator: "Wheeshed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I must be on time!"

Gustave Le Grand: "I'll take as long as I like!"

Narrator: "Said Gustave. And he went slower than ever.

The moment Gustave had finished, Pipsqueak took off. He hadn't waited for the pipes to be tied down.

Pipsqueak rounded a bend. The pipes slipped and fell all over the path, but Pipsqueak puffed on.

Pipsqueak thought he had delivered the pipes, so he chuffed away to his next job.

Pipsqueak was to take some tar wagons to workmen mending the roads."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Be careful."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Tar is sticky stuff."

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak wasn't being careful. He was going too fast.

Pipsqueak charged down Big Macintosh's Hill. He didn't see Big Mac and the express buffaloes until it was too late. The trailer past Big Mac, but the tar wagons didn't."


"Luckily, no one was hurt, but Big Mac was very cross."

Big Macintosh: "Now look what you've done!"

Narrator: "He wheeshed."

Big Macintosh: "What will Hoity Toity say?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak thought he know."

Pipsqueak: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "He cried."

Pipsqueak: "I'm sure to be scrapped now!"

Narrator: "And so Pipsqueak decided to run away.

Caramel was clearing away the tar wagons when Hoity Toity arrived with Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Where is Pipsqueak?"

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "He has caused confusion and delay!"

Narrator: "Big Mac didn't know."

Big Macintosh: "He just left very quickly, sir."

Spike: "He heard you at the sheds, sir."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "He thought you were sending him to be scrapped."

Hoity Toity: "Hmmm, I think I need a word with Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "You must all help me find him."

Narrator: "And so everyone looked for Pipsqueak. They searched high, and they searched low. They looked to and fro, but they couldn't see Pipsqueak anywhere."

Pipsqueak: "What's to become of me?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak whispered, but there was no one around to hear. Pipsqueak looked very small and felt very lonely.

Spike and Hoity Toity were looking for Pipsqueak on Spike's route. Spike suddenly had an idea."

Spike: "I think I know where Pipsqueak is, sir."

Narrator: "And he puffed back to the library as fast as he could.

The sheds were very quiet as Spike rolled inside."

Hoity Toity: "Pipsqueak?"

Narrator: "Called Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Are you there?"

Pipsqueak: "Please don't scrap me, sir."

Narrator: "He said."

Pipsqueak: "I didn't mean to be late or cause trouble."

Hoity Toity: "Scrap you?"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Why, the very thought of it!"

Narrator: "And Hoity Toity told Pipsqueak what he had really said."

Hoity Toity: "I told your driver you had been working too hard, and that was why you were late. I had decided that after taking some scrap to the smelters, you were to carry the mail, all week!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was as happy as he had ever been."

Pipsqueak: "Do you really mean it, sir?"

Narrator: "Puffed Pipsqueak proudly."

Pipsqueak: "The mail, for a whole week! Thank you, sir!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak couldn't stop himself whistling for joy. Spike whistled too. It was good to have his friend back.

So Pipsqueak carried the mail all week. He wasn't late and he didn't make a mistake, not one. And Pipsqueak decided never to listen to silly stories ever again. Especially not ones made up by himself."

As Good as Big Macintosh

Narrator: "It was a beautiful fall day in Ponyville. All the animals will working very hard.

Hoity Toity came to Golden Oak Library. He had exciting news."

Hoity Toity: "Big Macintosh is to take the new Mayor of Ponyville on a special tour of the town."

Narrator: "He announced. Big Mac was thrilled. But then he had thought."

Big Macintosh: "Who will take the express buffaloes, sir?"

Narrator: "He asked. The other animals were excited. Pulling the express buffaloes was an important job. Everyone wanted to be chosen, but Hoity Toity chose Rarity.

When Hoity Toity left, Rarity was very happy. But Big Mac wasn't impressed."

Big Macintosh: "The express is the longest line of buffaloes in the town."

Narrator: "He sniffed."

Big Macintosh: "I always cross the town twice by teatime. You'll never do that."

Rarity: "I've got big hooves, and I'll do my best."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Big Macintosh: "Big hooves don't make a big horse."

Narrator: "Boasted Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "Everyone knows I'm the best."

Narrator: "Spike thought Big Mac was showing off."

Spike: "Twice before teatime."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Spike: "That will be hard."

Narrator: "But Rarity wasn't listening to Spike."

Rarity: "I'm going to be as good as Big Macintosh."

Narrator: "She said eagerly. And she hurried away as fast as she could.

Rarity puffed into the town hall. She was looking forward to taking the express, but it was very, very heavy."

Rarity: "Bust my hooves!"

Narrator: "She gasped, and she slowly pulled out of the town hall. But she pulled away too soon, and left the last buffalo behind.

Rarity puffed with all her might. She was determined to be fast.

Rarity had crossed the town once in good time."

Rarity: "I am as good as Big Mac!"

Narrator: "She puffed proudly.

Rarity had to wait for Shining Armor at the crossing. Shining Armor went as fast as he could, but it wasn't fast enough for Rarity."

Rarity: "Hurry up, slowcoach!"

Narrator: "She cried."

Rarity: "Or you will make me late!"

Narrator: "Shining Armor felt sad, but Rarity just hurried off.

Rarity stopped at Sugar Cube Corner. The express was a guaranteed connection with Angel the Rabbit. But Angel hadn't arrived. He had a injured foot, and was running late. Rarity tried to wait. She counted to ten twice, but she felt as if her body would burst."

Rarity: "I'm going to be the slowest unicorn in Ponyville."

Narrator: "She cried."

Rarity: "And it's not my fault."

Narrator: "And she puffed away. When Angel arrived, Rarity had already left.

Rarity needed to drink more water. But Cranky was at the water fountain. He was pulling a slow goods load. Rarity wanted to go first."

Rarity: "It doesn't matter you were late."

Narrator: "She said."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You must wait your turn."

Narrator: "Said Cranky crossly."

Rarity: "Express unicorns don't wait!"

Narrator: "Said Rarity, and she left without drinking more water.

Rarity went faster than ever. Her buffaloes rocked and rolled. And her passengers were biffed and bumped and bounced.

Finally, Rarity could see Ponyville Docks up ahead."

Rarity: "Twice before teatime."

Narrator: "She puffed happily."

Rarity: "I am as good as Big Mac!"

Narrator: "Then there was trouble. Rarity slowed down."

Rarity: "What's happening to me?!"

Narrator: "She cried. She went slower and slower. Rarity had run out of water. She huffed and puffed, but she had no strength left. Finally, Rarity came to a complete stop.

Hoity Toity arrived with Crnaky. He was very cross."

Hoity Toiry: "You should have waited."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity sternly."

Hoity Toity: "And now you have caused confusion and delay! You left the last buffalo, stranded Angel's passengers and bumped your buffaloes. You must learn to be more patient."

Narrator: "Rarity knew Hoity Toity was right. She felt very bad. She was only trying to be as good as Big Macintosh."

Rarity: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "She said sadly.

Cranky pulled Rarity into the docks. Then, he went back to collect the express buffaloes."

Hoity Toity: "Now I need an animal to take the slow goods load."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity. Rarity had an idea."

Rarity: "May I take it, sir?"

Narrator: "She said."

Rarity: "If I promise to go slowly?"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity thought it was a grand idea."

Hoity Toity: "The slow goods load needs lots of patience."

Narrator: "He said. Rarity was pleased. She was determined to do a good job.

So after she drank more water, and lots of food, Rarity walked up to the slow goods load.

She stopped at all the right buildings. And then she let all the other animals go first.

She stopped at a signal. Spike was waiting there."

Rarity: "Hey, Spike. I am learning patience."

Narrator: "Rarity puffed."

Rarity: "But if only I can learn it faster."

Narrator: "Spike had to laugh."

Cranky Gets a New Coat

Narrator: "All of Hoity Toity's animals like to look clean, bright and shiny. They love being washed down and having their body polished until it gleams.

Cranky was in the workshop being given some new fur. He was beside himself with joy. Cranky thought being given new fur meant he was special. The workmen polished for hour upon hour.

Then, with new fur shining, wig twinkling and blacking black, Cranky returned to the library."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look! Aren't I a beautiful brown?"

Narrator: "He asked the others."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "No wonder Hoity Toity thinks I'm special."

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak was worried. He wasn't being given new fur. And he wasn't all brown."

Pipsqueak: "Does this mean Hoity Toity doesn't think I'm special?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Spike: "Looking splendid is not the same as being really useful."

Narrator: "Said Spike firmly."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "But best of all is being really useful and looking splendid, like me."

Narrator: "Said Cranky cheerfully. Before Spike could say anything else, Cranky closed his eyes and fell happily asleep.

The next morning, all the animals were very busy. Pipsqueak was working at the coal plant. Spike and Rarity were taking passengers up and down the the branch route. Big Macintosh was pulling the express.

Hoity Toity came to see Cranky. He told him to join Pipsqueak at the coal plant at once."

Hoity Toity: "The coal changelings must reach Ponyville Docks before the boat sails. So no dillydallying."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Cranky. And he set off at once.

But Cranky didn't go straight to the coal plant. He decided to go by the canal instead. Then he could see himself in the water for yard after yard after yard."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Magnificent!"

Narrator: "He puffed. Cranky had forgotten what Hoity Toity had said.

At the coal yard, Pipsqueak was working as hard has he could. But he was falling behind. The line of changelings was getting longer and longer, and the yard manager was getting crosser and crosser. Where could Cranky be?

Cranky was still enjoying himself. But there was no one around the share his fun, so he headed for the train station.

But as Cranky arrived at the station, Big Mac and the express buffaloes were leaving. The passengers had gone."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky. He was disappointed. And he left the station.

Cranky headed straight for the branch route. Cranky say Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look at me!"

Narrator: "He puffed."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Don't I look fine?"

Spike: "You should be at work."

Narrator: "Called Spike. But Cranky didn't listen to Spike.

Cranky was enjoying being Cranky.

But Pipsqueak wasn't enjoying being Pipsqueak. He was trying his hardest, but the changelings were being very naughty."

Changelings: (Laugh)

Narrator: "Poor Pipsqueak was almost worn out."

Yard Manager: "What will happen to the order now?"

Narrator: "Cried the yard manager.

When Cranky rolled into the coal plant, it was late in the afternoon. Pipsqueak was cross. So was the yard manager."

Yard Manager: "Too make up for lost time,"

Narrator: "He said."

Yard Manager: "You must take an extra long line of changelings to the docks."

Narrator: "Cranky was delighted. The docks were always bustling with animals and people."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It's the place to be seen."

Narrator: "He said."

Pipsqueak: "The changelings are being very naughty."

Narrator: "Warned Pipsqueak, but Cranky still wasn't listening.

Cranky puffed along, looking forward to being seen, but the changelings were naughtier than ever. They rocked and rolled and crashed and bashed. Cranky's face was soon covered in soot.

Going downhill, the changelings wiggled and giggled. Cranky had to stop with a jolt. Coal tumbled from the changelings, landing on Cranky. Cranky was cross and biffed the changelings as hard as he could. More coal flew out!

Now Cranky didn't want to be seen. He was as dirty as he had ever been. But on his way to the docks, he kept passing his friends. He passed Rarity,

and Shining Armor,

and Spike. Spike thought the only red thing on Cranky was his face.

Cranky trundled into the docks. He hoped no one would see him. But Big Mac was at the docks with the express buffaloes. He could not believe his eyes. He thought Cranky was the grubbiest, grimiest, dustiest, dirtiest donkey he had ever seen.

Pipsqueak arrived safely with the last of the changelings."

Pipsqueak: "I like your new fur."

Narrator: "He puffed cheekily."

Pipsqueak: "He do look splendid."

Narrator: "Cranky knew he should have listened. He didn't feel splendid anymore. But for the first time all day, Cranky could hear clearly. He could hear the sound of the changelings giggling at him. And, despite feeling foolish, even Cranky had to smile."

Spike, Rarity and the Snowboots

Narrator: "Winter was coming to Ponyville. The morning ground was covered in crisp white frost. Spike and Rarity were happily chuffing up and down the path. Spike was enjoying taking Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He thought he was doing a grand job.

But Rarity had other ideas. She thought he could be doing an even grander job, so Rarity decided to help Spike by telling him what he was doing wrong.

When she saw him puffing down the branch path, she cried out."

Rarity: "Slow down! You're going too fast and bumping your passengers."

Narrator: "Later, Rarity saw Spike by a bridge. He had stopped to drink some water, and was talking to some children."

Rarity: "Stop talking to the children!"

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "You are working, and they will make you late."

Spike: "I'm never late."

Narrator: "Said Spike huffily."

Rarity: "There's always a first time."

Narrator: "Said Rarity cheerfully, and she puffed away. Spike was cross. He loved talking to children, and thought Rarity was being a big bossy hoof. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle agreed."

Spike: "I am never going to listen to Rarity ever, ever again."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "So there!"

Narrator: "The next morning, a sleepy Spike had to leave Golden Oak Library bright and early. He was to collect some wagons from the quarry, and take them to the docks.

Later that morning, Hoity Toity arrived with a new weather report."

Hoity Toity: "There is snow on the way. You must all have your snowboots fitted."

Rarity: "Excuse me, sir."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "But Spike has already left for the quarry."

Hoity Toity: "Then you must find Spike, and tell him Hoity Toity wants him to wear his snowboots."

Narrator: "So Rarity puffed away to get her snowboots on.

The workmen fixed Rarity's snowboots on in no time at all, and she set off to find Spike. Rarity was very happy. She was looking forward to telling him what to do.

Spike was drinking some water at Sugar Cube Corner. Rarity puffed up in front of him. She blew her whistle, but Spike didn't say hello."

Spike: "She just wants to boss me again."

Narrator: "Grouched Spike."

Rarity: "Spike!"

Narrator: "She called."

Rarity: "You must go and get your snowboots fitted."

Narrator: "Spike could hear what Rarity was saying, but pretended he couldn't. He thought he was being very clever. So Rarity shouted even louder again."

Rarity: "You must go and get your snowboots fitted!"

Narrator: "She cried."

Spike: "Bother snowboots!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "And bother Rarity! Anyway, the weather is perfectly fine."

Narrator: "And he puffed away as fast as he could."

Rarity: "Oh, Spike!"

Narrator: "Spike delivered the wagons to the quarry. Then set off to collect cream from the dairy. Everything was going well.

But soon the clear blue sky was eaten away by dark gray clouds."

Spike's Driver: "They look like snow clouds to me."

Narrator: "Said his driver. And he was right. Soon, big flakes of white snow began to fall. Then the snow gathered into drifts and covered the path."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike, as his feet began to slip.

Snow fell all over the town. Rarity cut safely through the drifts with her snowboots."

Rarity: "Spike will be in trouble now."

Narrator: "Rarity was right. Spike was working harder and harder, but he had to go more and more slowly."

Spike's Driver: "We can't go on."

Narrator: "Said his driver. Spike pulled to a slow, sad stop by a signal box. And his driver went for help.

It snowed and snowed. Spike felt very cold and twice as miserable.

Then he heard the sound of a unicorn. Spike was delighted, until he saw who his rescuer was. It was Rarity."

Rarity: "I told you to get your snowboots! Now look what's happened."

Narrator: "Spike was still cross."

Spike: "You should say sorry for bossing me about!"

Rarity: "I am sorry!"

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "Sorry you didn't listen to me!"

Narrator: "Rarity and Spike chuffed into Golden Oak Library. Hoity Toity was waiting. He did not look happy."

Hoity Toity: "Rarity, you must take Spike to get his snowboots on at once."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity sternly."

Hoity Toity: "Spike, you must learn to listen."

Narrator: "Spike felt bad. He didn't know it was Hoity Toity who wanted him to wear his snowboots. Rarity felt bad, too. She didn't like seeing Spike in trouble."

Rarity: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "She said."

Rarity: "I forgot to tell Spike it was your idea."

Hoity Toity: "You mean I have two animals that don't listen?"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Well, I never! Rarity, you must take Spike to get his snowboots on at once."

Narrator: "Soon the work was finished, and Spike was wearing his snowboots."

Spike: "Thank you for owning up."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "You are a very good friend."

Rarity: "That's all right."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "You are a good friend, too. But next time, if you want to stay out of trouble, just do what I say."

Narrator: "Even Spike had to laugh."

Animal Roll Call

They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight,
Arranging changelings and carrying freight.
Red and white and brown and purple,
They're the Really Useful crew.
All with different roles to play
'round the Library or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends,
Spike and his friends.

Spike, he's the cheeky one,
Cranky is vain but lots of fun.
Pipsqueak delivers the mail on time,
Big Macintosh thunders down the path.
Rarity really knows her stuff,
Filthy Rich pulls and heaves and hauls.
Shining Armor wants to help and share,
Braeburn, well, let's say, he's yellow.
