A Scarf for Bart

Narrator: "It was a cold winter's morning in TV Land. The wind was bitter and the ground hard with frost. RS Mr. Conductor and Bart were cold and cross."

RS Mr. Conductor: "All I want is a warm body."

Narrator: "Huffed RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Firelighter knows that. He's late."

Bart: "He's not late."

Narrator: "Replied Bart."

Bart: "This cold weather woke us up early."

Narrator: "Gusts of wind swirled round the house, tossing flakes of snow towards RS Mr. Conductor. Then they swooshed around Bart too."

Bart: "Why don't we talk about something else?"

Narrator: "Shivered Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Yes, like how silly we'll look when you heads turn into icicles."

Bart: "That's not funny. Maybe we'll stop feeling cold if we talk about warm things, like sunshine and steam."

RS Mr. Conductor: "And firelighters."

Narrator: "Muttered RS Mr. Conductor."

Bart: "Scarves!"

Narrator: "Continued Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Scarves."

Narrator: "Laughed RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "That's what you need, Bart. A woolly scarf round your neck."

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor was only teasing. But Bart thought happily about scarves until the firelighter came.

Mayor Adam West was enjoying hot porridge for breakfast. He was looking forward to taking important visitors on a tour of the land and had pressed his special trousers."

Mayor Adam West: "I shall put them in my trunk and change into them just before the photographs are taken."

Narrator: "He said to Carol. Then he set off to catch his ride.

Bart was now working hard. His body was warm, and he had plenty of strength, but he still thought about scarves. He saw them everywhere he went."

Bart: "My neck's cold, my neck's cold."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Bart: "I want a scarf, I want a scarf."

Homer: "Rubbish, Bart."

Narrator: "Said Homer."

Homer: "TV Characters don't wear scarves."

Bart: "TV Characters with proper necks do."

Narrator: "Replied Bart."

Bart: "Your neck is too big."

Narrator: "Before Homer could answer, Bart puffed away. Homer snorted. He was looking forward to taking the special visitors.

It was time for the photographs. Everyone was excited. Mayor West was waiting on the platform for his trousers. They were in a trunk amongst a big load of baggage. The porters were taking the baggage trolley across the line. They were walking backwards to see that nothing fell off.

Bart was still being cheeky. His driver always shut off steam just outside the station. Bart wanted to surprise the flowers by coming in as quietly as he could.

But the porters didn't here him either.

Boxes and bags burst everywhere."

Bart: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Groaned Bart.

Sticky streams of jam trickled down Bart's face. A hat fell on his foot. Worst of all, a pair of trousers coiled lovingly round his neck.

Everyone was a very angry. Mayor West seized the top hat."

Mayor Adam West: "Mine!"

Narrator: "He said."

Mayor Adam West: "Bart, look at this!"

Bart: "Yes sir. I am sir."

Mayor Adam West: "My best trousers too!"

Bart: "Yes sir. Please sir."

Mayor Adam West: "We must pay the passengers for their spoiled clothes, and my trousers are ruined. I hope this will teach you not to play tricks with the flowers."

Narrator: "Bart went off to the yard. He felt very silly. On the way, he met Schemer."

Schemer: "Hello, Bart. So you found a scarf, eh? But legs go in trousers, not necks!"

Narrator: "And he puffed off to tell Homer the news.

That evening, RS Mr. Conductor and Bart were resting in the house. Bart's driver had taken away the trousers and given Bart a good rubdown."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Firelighter's promised to come early tomorrow."

Narrator "Said RS Mr. Conductor. Homer arrived. He'd enjoyed taking the visitors around and now he felt sorry for Bart too."

Homer: "Driver says the weather will be warmer tomorrow. You won't need a scarf, Bart."

Bart: "Certainly not."

Narrator: "Replied Bart."

Bart: "TV Characters don't need scarves. TV Characters need warm bodies. Everyone knows that!"

Bart's Promise

Narrator: "Every summer, TV Land is very busy. Holidaymakers love to sight see, and when the weather is fine, there is no better place to visit. Some people like to go to the mountains, others like the valleys.

Children love the seaside.

One morning, RS Mr. Conductor was puffing along the path that runs by the coast. His two sisters-in-law, Patty and Selma had children going to the beach. Everyone was happy.

Bart was taking some goombas to the harbor."

Bart: "Hello, RS Mr. Conductor. You look cheerful. I wish I could take children today instead of goombas."

RS Mr. Conductor: "They're Reverend Lovejoy's Sunday School."

Narrator: "Explained RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I'm busy this evening, but the stationmaster says I can ask you to take the children home."

Bart: "Of course I will."

Narrator: "Promised Bart.

Later, Bart saw Budge."

Budgie: "Sorry, Bart. Can't take talk. I'm on high alert."

Bart: "Why?"

Budgie: "Bad weather's due. My help's always needed. Mind how you go, Bart."

Bart: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Huffed Bart."

Bart: "As long as I've got a path to walk on, I can go anywhere in any weather anyhow. Goodbye."

Narrator: "He set off for the beach.

It was beautiful day, but Edd was worried."

Edd: "Be careful."

Narrator: "He warned."

Edd: "There's a storm coming."

Bart: "A promise is a promise."

Narrator: "Thought Bart."

Bart: "No matter what the weather."

Narrator: "The children had a lovely day, but by tea time, dark clouds loomed ahead.

Patty and Selma were glad when Bart arrived. He was just in time. The rain streamed down Bart's body."

Bart: "Ugh!"

Narrator: "He shivered, and thought of his nice dry house.

Bart struggled on past coastal villages and into the countryside.

The river was rising fast."

Bart: "I wish I could see, I wish I could see!"

Narrator: "Complained Bart, as he battled against the rain. More trouble lay ahead."

Bart: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Hissed Bart."

Bart: "The water is sloshing my body."

Narrator: "Bart's driver and fireman had to find some more hot drinks."

Bart's Fireman: "I'll have some of your hot drinks, please."

Narrator: "Said the fireman to the guard."

Guard: "I only made it this morning."

Narrator: "Grumbled the guard, but he still helped.

Soon, Bart felt warm and comfortable again. Then he saw Budgie."

Bart: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Thought Bart."

Bart: "Budgie's come to laugh at me."

Narrator: "Something thudded onto Bart."

Bart: "Ow!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Bart."

Bart: "He needn't throw things."

Bart's Driver: "It's a parachute."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Bart's Driver: "Budgie's dropping hot drinks for us."

Bart: "Thank you, Budgie."

Narrator: "Whistled Bart."

Budgie: "Good to be of service."

Narrator: "Replied Budgie, and buzzed away.

The water lapped Bart's feet. Bart was losing strength again, but he plunged bravely on."

Bart: "I promised."

Narrator: "He panted."

Bart: "I promised."

Narrator: "He made one more big effort, and at last exhausted but triumphant, he brought everyone home."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Well done, Bart!"

Narrator: "Cheered RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "You kept your promise despite everything."

Narrator: "Mayor Adam West arrived in Budgie. First he thanked the men, then Piglet."

Mayor Adam West: "Budgie told me you were, um, a wizard. He says he can beat you at some things, but not at being a submarine. I don't know what you two get up to sometimes, but I do know that you're a Really Useful Boy."

Bart: "Oh, sir."

Narrator: "Whispered Bart happily."

Time for Trouble

Narrator: "TV Land had many visitors, and Mayor Adam West had scheduled more lines of flowers. Garfield, the proud cat, had to work harder than ever before."

Garfield: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He called to the flowers."

Garfield: "Come on, come on, come on! The passengers rely on me to be on time."

Narrator: "Whenever Garfield finished one journey, it was time for another to begin."

Garfield: "Never mind."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Garfield: "I like a long run to stretch my legs."

Narrator: "Even so, Mayor West decided that Garfield needed a rest."

Mayor Adam West: "Schemer shall do your work."

Narrator: "Schemer was delighted. He liked to show off his clothes and was determined to be as fast as Garfield."

Schemer: "You know, little Grandpa Dave."

Narrator: "He boasted."

Schemer: "I'm an important man; everyone knows it. I'm as regular as clockwork. Never late, always on time."

Grandpa Dave: "Says you."

Narrator: "Replied Grandpa Dave. Just then Mayor West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "Your parts are worn, Grandpa Dave. So you must go to the hospital to get better."

Grandpa Dave: "Can I take Lanolin, sir?"

Mayor Adam West: "No. What would the passengers do without her?"

Narrator: "Grandpa Dave saw Bart by the water fountain."

Bart: "Don't worry, Grandpa Dave."

Narrator: "Said Bart."

Bart: "I'll take care of Lanolin until you get back."

Narrator: "Soon Grandpa Dave was out on the main road. He clanked as he walked again. He's a old man with small feet. His body didn't hold much water. He had come a long way and began to feel thirsty. In the distance was a signal."

Grandpa Dave: "Good."

Narrator: "He thought."

Grandpa Dave: "There's a station ahead. I can have a nice drink and a rest until Schemer has passed."

Narrator: "Grandpa Dave's driver thought so too.

Grandpa Dave was enjoying his drink when the signalman came up. He had never seen Grandpa Dave before. Grandpa Dave's driver tried to explain, but the new signalman wouldn't listen."

Signalman: "We must clear the path for Schemer with the express. You'll have to get more water at the next station."

Narrator: "Grandpa Dave clanked sadly away.

Hurrying used a lot of water, and his body was soon empty. Poor Grandpa Dave was out of strength and stranded on the main road."

Grandpa Dave's Fireman: "We must warn Schemer."

Narrator: "Said the fireman. Then he saw Bart and Lanolin."

Grandpa Dave's Fireman: "Please, take me back to the station. It's an emergency."

Narrator: "Lanolin hated leaving Grandpa Dave."

Bart: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said Bart."

Bart: "You're taking the fireman to warn Schemer, that's a big help."

Narrator: "Lanolin felt much better. Schemer was fuming when he heard the news."

Schemer: "I'm going to be late."

Signalman: "My fault."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "I didn't understand about Grandpa Dave."

Schemer's Driver: "Now, Schemer."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Schemer's Driver: "You'll have to push Grandpa Dave."

Schemer: "What, me? Me, push Grandpa Dave and pull my flowers too?"

Narrator: "Grumbling dreadfully, Schemer set off to find Grandpa Dave. He came up behind Grandpa Dave and gave him a bump."

Schemer: "Get on, you!"

Narrator: "Schemer had to work very hard. When he reached the hospital station, he felt exhausted. Some children were on the platform."

Boy: "Coo,"

Narrator: "Said one."

Boy: "The express is late and it's got two TV Characters. I think Schemer couldn't pull it on his own, so Grandpa Dave had to help him."

Grandpa Dave: "Never mind, Schemer."

Narrator: "Whispered Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "They're only joking."

Schemer: "Hah-hah."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Garfield and the Famous Visitor

Narrator: "It was an important day in the yard. Everyone was excited, making notes and taking photographs. A special visitor had arrived, and was now the center of attention."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Who's that?"

Narrator: "Whispered RS Mr. Conductor to Spike."

Spike: "That,"

Narrator: "Said Spike proudly,"

Spike: "Is a celebrity."

Bart: "A what?"

Narrator: "Asked Bart."

Spike: "A celebrity is a very famous character."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "Driver says we can talk to him soon."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Oh,"

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "He's probably too famous to even notice us."

Narrator: "Just then, Garfield arrived."

Garfield: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Garfield."

Garfield: "Who cares? A lot of fuss about nothing, if you ask me."

Narrator: "And he steamed away.

Later that night, the TV Characters found that the visitor wasn't conceited at all. He enjoyed talking the TV Characters, till long after the stars came out.

He left early next morning."

Garfield: "Good riddance!"

Narrator: "Garfield grumbled."

Garfield: "Chattering all night. Who is he, anyway?"

RS Mr. Conductor: "Spike told you,"

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "He's famous."

Garfield: "As famous as me?"

Narrator: "Huffed Garfield."

Garfield: "Nonsense."

RS Mr. Conductor: "He's famouser than you."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "He went 100 miles an hour before you were thought of."

Garfield: "So he says,"

Narrator: "Snorted Garfield."

Garfield: "But I didn't like his looks. He's got no tail. Never trust tailless racers. They're not respectable. I never boast, but I'd say that 100 miles an hour would be easy for me."

Narrator: "Spike brought some goombas to Edd's station."

Edd: "Hello."

Narrator: "Called Edd."

Edd: "That famous racer came through this morning. He waved to me. Wasn't he kind?"

Spike: "He's the finest racer in the world."

Narrator: "Replied Spike, then he told Edd what Garfield had said."

Edd: "Take no notice."

Narrator: "Soothed Edd."

Edd: "He's just jealous. Look, he's coming now."

Narrator: "Garfield's feet pounded the road."

Garfield: "He did it, I'll do it. He did it, I'll do it!"

Narrator: "Garfield's line rocketed past, and was gone."

Spike: "He'll knock himself to bits!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Spike."

Garfield's Driver: "Steady, Garfield."

Narrator: "Called his driver."

Garfield's Driver: "We aren't running a race."

Garfield: "We are, then."

Narrator: "Said Garfield, but he said it to himself.

Suddenly, Garfield began to feel a little strange."

Garfield: "My back end seems funny."

Narrator: "He thought."

Garfield: "It feels as if something is loose! I'd better go slower."

Narrator: "But it was too late.

On the viaduct, they met the wind. It was a teasing wind that blew suddenly at hard puffs. Garfield thought it wanted to push him off the bridge."

Garfield: "No, you don't!"

Narrator: "He said firmly.

But the wind had other ideas. It curled round his body, crept under his loose tail, and lifted off and away into the valley below.

Garfield was most uncomfortable. The cold wind was whistling through his body where his tail should be and he felt silly without it.

At the big station, the goombas laughed at him."

(Goombas laugh)

Narrator: "Garfield tried to shoo them away,"

(Goombas continue laughing)

Narrator: "But they crowded round, no matter what he did.

On the way back home, Garfield wanted his driver to stop and fetch his tail."

Garfield's Driver: "We'll never find it now."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Garfield's Driver: "You'll have to go to the workshop for a new one."

Narrator: "Garfield was very cross."

Garfield: "I hope the house is empty tonight."

Narrator: "He huffed to himself. But all the TV characters were there waiting."

A Voice: "Never trust tailless racers."

Narrator: "Said a voice from somewhere behind him."

A Voice: "They aren't respectable."

Mario's Duck

Narrator: "Spike the Dragon worked hard in the yard at the big station.

Sometimes he worked with flowers, sometimes he worked with goombas. But whatever the work, Spike got the job done without fuss.

One day, Spike was resting in the house when Mayor Adam West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "Your work in the yard has been good. Would you like to have a route for your own?"

Spike: "Yes, please sir."

Narrator: "Replied Spike.

So Spike took charge of his own route. The responsibility delighted him.

The route runs along the coast by sandy beaches till it meets a port where big ships come in.

Spike enjoyed exploring every curve and corner of the line. Sea breezes swirled his smoke high into the air, and his scales glistened in the sunlight."

Spike: "This is just like being on holiday."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Spike's Driver: "Well, you know what they say."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Spike's Driver: "A change is as good as a rest."

Narrator: "Soon Spike was busier than ever.

Mayor West was building a new station at the port and Spike pushed the goombas wherever they were needed.

Ten Cents looked after Spike's passengers, and the other TV Characters helped too, but the work took a long time.

Noise and dust filled the air."

Grandpa Dave: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Whistled Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "The station's nearly finished."

Spike: "And on time too."

Narrator: "Said Spike thankfully.

Spike felt his responsibility deeply and talked endlessly about it."

Spike: "You don't understand, Mario, how much Mayor West relies on me."

Mario: "Och aye."

Narrator: "Muttered Mario sleepily."

Spike: "I'm a dragon and I..."

Mario: "Quack, quack, quack!"

Spike: "What?"

Mario: "Ye heard. Quack, quack ye go. Sounds like you'd an egg laid. Now wheesht and let a plumber sleep."

Spike: "Quack yourself!"

Narrator: "Said Spike indignantly.

Later he spoke to his driver."

Spike: "Mario says I quack as if I'd laid an egg."

Spike's Fireman: "Quack, do you?"

Narrator: "Pondered his fireman. He whispered something to Spike and his driver. They were going to play a joke on Mario and pay him back for teasing Spike.

The TV Characters were busy for the rest of the day and nothing more was said, not even a quack.

But when at last Mario was asleep, Spike's driver and fireman popped something into his pocket.

Next morning, when Mario stopped for water, he found that he had an unexpected passenger with him. A small white duckling popped out of his pocket."

Mario: "No doubt who's behind this."

Narrator: "Laughed Mario.

The duckling was tame. She shared the fireman's sandwiches, and rode on Mario. The other TV Characters enjoyed teasing Mario about her.

Presently, she grew tired of traveling and hopped off at a station, and there she stayed.

That night, Mario's driver and fireman got busy, and in the morning when Spike's crew arrived, they laughed and laughed."

Spike's Driver: "Look, Spike! Look what's behind you. It's a nest box with an egg in it!"

Narrator: "Mario opened a sleepy eye."

Mario: "Well, well, well. You must have laid it in the night, Spike. All unbeknownst."

Narrator: "Then Spike laughed too."

Spike: "You win, Mario. It'd take a clever TV Character to get the better of you."

Narrator: "There's a pond near the duckling's station. Here she often swims and welcomes the TV Characters as they pass by. The stationmaster calls her Dilly, but to everyone else, she is always Mario's Duck."

RS Mr. Conductor Gets Bumped

Narrator: "Every afternoon, RS Mr. Conductor puffs along his route with Patty and Selma. First, they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it.

This is a special place. Whenever children hear RS Mr. Conductor coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight.

One day, RS Mr. Conductor was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Bart Simpson was waiting, too."

Bart: "Hurry up, RS Mr. Conductor."

Narrator: "Called Bart, when the light turned green."

Bart: "If you're late, Mayor Adam West might get a new TV character to replace you."

RS Mr. Conductor: "He would never do that!"

Narrator: "Thought RS Mr. Conductor, but he was worried.

Next day, RS Mr. Conductor hurried along the path. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag.

Next, RS Mr. Conductor saw some children. They were waving too."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Something must be wrong."

Narrator: "Thought RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "This station's for goods, not passengers."

Children: "Help, RS Mr. Conductor, help! We are glad to see you."

Narrator: "Called the children."

Children: "Please, will you take us home?"

Narrator: "The stationmaster explained to RS Mr. Conductor's driver that the school bus had broken down, and that all the parents would be worried if the children were late.

RS Mr. Conductor waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Ten Cents was waiting to take them home.

When RS Mr. Conductor finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Mayor West might be cross with him."

Bart: "I warned RS Mr. Conductor."

Narrator: "Puffed Bart to Schemer."

Bart: "He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now."

Narrator: "But next morning, Mayor West was nowhere to be seen."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Thank goodness."

Narrator: "Sighed RS Mr. Conductor.

RS Mr. Conductor knows every part of his route. But just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the road."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Careful, RS Mr. Conductor!"

Narrator: "Called his driver. But it was too late."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "That's done it!"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "We shan't get any further today!"

RS Mr. Conductor: "But what about my passengers?"

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Don't worry, they'll be looked after."

Narrator: "Replied his driver.

While workmen repaired the road, RS Mr. Conductor had to work with goombas in the yard. Ten Cents came to see him."

Ten Cents: "I understand you need my help again."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Yes, Ten Cents."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor sadly."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I can't run without my road."

Narrator: "Ten Cents set off to collect RS Mr. Conductor's passengers."

Passengers: "Hello, Ten Cents."

Narrator: "They said."

Passengers: "We are glad you are here."

Narrator: "Ten Cents ran along the river by the path. He stopped at each station along the path. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. RS Mr. Conductor felt miserable."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I've lost my passengers. They'll like Ten Cents better than me."

Narrator: "Mayor Adam West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "Your route is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Ten Cents can work together more."

Narrator: "When RS Mr. Conductor reached the station, there were all his passengers."

Passengers: "Ten Cents is a good tug, but we missed our rides with you."

Narrator: "They said.

Later, RS Mr. Conductor spoke to Ten Cents."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Thank you for looking after my passengers."

Ten Cents: "Oh, that's all right, RS Mr. Conductor. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Ten Cents,"

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "You're a very good friend indeed!"

RS Mr. Conductor, Bart and the Dragon

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor and Bart are good friends, but sometimes Bart teases RS Mr. Conductor about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all.

One evening he was dozing happily in the house, but Bart wanted to talk."

Bart: "Wake up, RS Mr. Conductor. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?"

RS Mr. Conductor: "Certainly not. Anyway I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was you really."

Narrator: "Bart went on teasing him."

Bart: "I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Why?"

Narrator: "Asked RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I quite like the dark."

Bart: "Oh really?"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Bart."

Bart: "I am surprised. I always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?"

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead.

Next day, Mayor Adam West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "I would like you to go to the harbour tonight to collect something rather unusual."

RS Mr. Conductor: "What sort of something?"

Narrator: "Asked RS Mr. Conductor."

Mayor Adam West: "Wait and see."

Narrator: "Replied Mayor West.

Meanwhile, Bart was moving some goombas into a siding. Homer arrived with his goombas. The signalman switched the points and Bart waited on the siding until Homer had gone by.

Then, there was trouble."

Signalman: "The points are jammed."

Narrator: "Called the signalman."

Signalman: "I can't switch them back. The workmen will mend them in the morning. It's too late now."

Bart's Driver: "Hmmm."

Narrator: "Said Bart's driver."

Bart's Driver: "I'm sorry, Bart. But you will have to stay here for the night."

Bart: "Where are you going?"

Narrator: "Asked Bart."

Bart's Fireman: "Home for tea."

Narrator: "Replied the fireman. Bart was speechless.

He watched as the other TV characters went home.

Nighttime came and Bart began to feel very lonely."

Bart: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "He murmured."

Bart: "It's very dark."

(Owls hoots)

Bart: "OH! OH! What's that?!"

Narrator: "It was only an owl, but Bart didn't realize this."

Bart: "Oh, I wish RS Mr. Conductor were here too."

Narrator: "He sighed.

RS Mr. Conductor was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Gold dust and whistles!"

Narrator: "Cried RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "It's a dragon!"

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "This dragon is really friendly. He's for the carnival tomorrow."

Narrator: "Workmen lifted the dragon onto RS Mr. Conductor's wagon and put lights all around it for protection. Then, RS Mr. Conductor set off into the misty night.

Bart was asleep on his siding and had no idea that RS Mr. Conductor was approaching him."

(Bart wakes up and sees Elliot)

Bart: "Help!"

Narrator: "Cried Bart."

Bart: "I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes."

Narrator: "Next morning the points were mended and Bart puffed back to the junction. Garfield was just about to leave with his flowers."

Bart: "You'll never guess what I saw last night."

Narrator: "Garfield was in no mood for puzzles."

Garfield: "I'm a busy cat. I don't have time for your games."

Bart: "I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights."

Narrator: "Garfield snorted."

Garfield: "You've been in the sun too long. Your head has cracked."

Narrator: "When the other TV characters heard the news, they laughed too."

Schemer: "Look out, Bart!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Schemer."

Schemer: "Or the dragon may gobble you up!"

Bart: "No one believes me."

Narrator: "Huffed Bart."

Bart: "Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all."

Narrator: "But Bart soon found out that he hadn't."

Bart: "Help! Save me!"

Narrator: "Cried Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "It's alright."

Narrator: "Whistled RS Mr. Conductor. And he explained about the carnival."

RS Mr. Conductor: "By the way, how was your night out?"

Narrator: "Bart decided to tell RS Mr. Conductor the truth."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Well, Bart."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too."

Mr. Burns Does it Again

Narrator: "Spike and Bart enjoy their work at the harbor, pulling and pushing goombas with cargo to and from the quay.

But one morning, the TV characters were exhausted. The harbor was busier than ever.

Mayor Adam West promised that another character would be found to help them."

Batt: "Huh! It's about time."

Narrator: "Said Bart."

Spike: "I ache so much I can hardly get my feet to move."

Narrator: "Agreed Spike. They waited for the character to arrive.

It came as a shock when he did."

Mr. Burns: "Good morning."

Narrator: "Squirmed Mr. Burns in his oily voice. The two TV characters had not worked with Mr. Burns for a long time."

Spike: "What are you doing here?"

Narrator: "Gasped Spike."

Mr. Burns: "Your worthy West, ah, Mayor Adam West sent me. I hope you are pleased to see me again. I am to arrange some dreadfully tiresome goombas."

Bart: "Arrange where?"

Narrator: "Said Bart suspiciously."

Mr. Burns: "Where? Why from here to there."

Narrator: "Purred Mr. Burns."

Mr. Burns: "And then again from there to here. Easy, isn't it?"

Narrator: "With that, Mr. Burns, as if to make himself quite clear, bumped some goombas hard."

Goombas: "Ooooooh!"

Narrator: "Screamed the goombas."

Mr. Burns: "Grrrrh!"

Narrator: "Growled Mr. Burns.

Bart and Spike were horrified. They did not trust Mr. Burns at all. They refuse to work and would not leave their house.

Mayor West was enjoying his tea and iced bun when the telephone rang."

Mayor Adam West: "So there's trouble in the harbor yard? I'll be there right away."

Narrator: "Mr. Burns was working loudly and alone. Cargo lay on the quay. Ships and passengers were delayed. Everyone was complaining about Mayor West's land.

Bart and Spike were sulking in their house."

Mayor Adam West: "What's all this?"

Narrator: "Demanded Mayor West."

Bart: "Er, we're on strike, sir."

Narrator: "Said Bart nervously."

Spike: "Yes."

Narrator: "Added Spike."

Spike: "Beg pardon, sir, but we won't work with Mr. Burns, sir."

Narrator: "Then, in a quiet hurt voice, he added."

Spike: "You said you sent him packing, sir."

Mayor Adam West: "I have to give Mr. Burns a second chance. I am trying to help you by bringing Mr. Burns here. Now you must help me. He was the only character available."

Narrator: "Bart and Spike went sadly back to work.

Next morning, things were no better. Mr. Burns' driver had not set his feet up properly and Mr. Burns started to move. He went bump straight into Bart. Bart had an awful fright."

Mr. Burns: "Wake up there, Bart."

Narrator: "Scowled Mr. Burns."

Mr. Burns: "You have work to do."

Narrator: "He didn't even say he was sorry to Bart.

Later, Mr. Burns bumped the goombas so hard that the loads went everywhere."

Bart: "What will Mayor West say?"

Narrator: "Gasped Bart."

Spike: "He won't like it."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Mr. Burns: "So who's going to tell him, I wonder?"

Narrator: "Said Mr. Burns."

Mr. Burns: "Two little goody-goody tall-tales like you, I suppose."

Narrator: "Bart and Spike did not want to be tell-tales, so they said nothing.

Mr. Burns, thinking he could get away with his bad behavior, was ruder than ever. Next day, he was arranging goombas with china clay. He banged the goombas hard into the buffers, but the buffers weren't secure.

The silly goombas were sunk.

Soon, Mayor Adam West heard the news.

The goombas were hoisted safely from the sea, but the clay was lost.

Mayor West spoke severely to Captain Hook."

Mayor Adam West: "Things worked much better here before you arrived. I shall not be inviting you back.

Now, Spike and Bart, I hope you won't mind having to handle the work by yourselves again."

Bart and Spike: "Oh no, sir. Yes, please, sir."

Narrator: "Replied the TV characters. Whistling cheerfully, they puffed back to work while Mr. Burns sulked slowly away."

Homer's Forest

Narrator: "Homer Simpson has lived in TV Land for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He likes every part of it. From the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Homer always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too."

Homer's Driver: "Come on, Homer."

Narrator: "He would sometimes say."

Homer's Driver: "We've made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest."

Narrator: "Homer loved it here. The forest was full of broad oaks and tall pines.

Homer could remember the day long ago where he and Grandpa Dave brought some new trees to be planted and Scooby Doo and Sunshine helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others on the hillside. Homer always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why, but his driver understood."

Homer's Driver: "It's peaceful."

Narrator: "He said to Homer.

But one night, everything changed. The TV characters were resting in the house."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Listen."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Can you hear a strange whistling sound?"

Grandpa Dave: "It's the wind blowing outside our house."

Narrator: "Replied Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "But I've never heard it like this before."

Schemer: "Do you know?"

Narrator: "Added Schemer."

Schemer: "If Garfield wasn't here now, I'd say it was him thundering by with the express flowers."

Narrator: "All the TV characters laughed, except Homer."

Homer: "I hope the wind won't harm the forest."

Narrator: "By morning, the fierce winds had gone, but the damage was done. Homer's driver came to see him in the house."

Homer's Driver: "Trees have fallen on the path. We must help clear the path."

Narrator: "Mario set off with the breakdown crane, and Homer followed.

Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Homer felt sad."

Homer: "What will happen to all the animals who live here?"

Narrator: "He thought.

When Homer's wagons were full of logs, he took them to the timber mill where they would be turned into furniture and other things. Homer was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was still sorry to lose part of his forest."

Grandpa Dave: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Sighed Grandpa Dave to RS Mr. Conductor."

Grandpa Dave: "I wish there was something we can do to make things better again."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Yes, indeed."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "But what? We can't mend broken trees."

Narrator: "Grandpa Dave puffed slowly into the yard."

Mayor Adam West: "Hello, Grandpa Dave."

Narrator: "Said Mayor Adam West."

Mayor Adam West: "You do look glum."

Grandpa Dave: "I'm sad about the trees."

Narrator: "Said Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "And so is Homer. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it is gone."

Mayor Adam West: "We'll soon put that right. I have an important job for you, Grandpa Dave. I would like you to take some wagons to the forest."

Narrator: "When the wagons arrived, Grandpa Dave was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees all ready for planting."

Grandpa Dave: "This is the best job I've ever had."

Narrator: "Said Grandpa Dave happily.

When Homer returned, he was most surprised. There were Scooby Doo and Sunshine busily helping the workmen clear the torn stumps and branches."

Scooby Doo: "Look, Homer."

Narrator: "Called Scooby Doo."

Scooby Doo: "We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see."

Narrator: "Now Homer can see the new trees growing strong and tall, and the animals are coming back. Sometimes, everywhere is very quiet. And other times, Homer could hear leaves rustling, or a bird's wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sound of children laughing. And always, he is happy here."

The Trouble with Mud

Narrator: "One morning, RS Mr. Conductor was being cleaned when Garfield arrived. Mud had blown all over his smart orange fur."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Hello Garfield."

Narrator: "Called RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "You look as if you've had a mudbath. Be a sensible cat. Have a shower instead."

Narrator: "Garfield snorted."

Garfield: "I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy conductors do."

Narrator: "The wind blew stronger."

Garfield's Driver: "Whew, Garfield, slow down!"

Narrator: "Called his driver. This made Garfield crosser still."

Garfield: "I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!"

Narrator: "He hissed.

At the next station was a sign: "All TV Characters Must Wash Down Daily".

Schemer had just finished being cleaned."

Garfield's Driver: "Come on, Garfield."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Garfield's Driver: "You'll feel better after a good hose down."

Garfield: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Garfield, and angrily shook his body."

Garfield's Driver: "You're a very naughty cat!"

Narrator: "Said Garfield's driver."

Garfield's Driver: "Now Schemer will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later."

Garfield: "Good riddance!"

Narrator: "Huffed Garfield."

Garfield: "I'm far too busy to waste time with water."

Narrator: "He finished his journey safely and arrived at the big station. Mayor Adam West was waiting, so were Garfield's flowers and the passengers."

Mayor Adam West: "Goodness gracious!"

Narrator: "Said Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "You can't take the flowers. Homer will have to do it. Garfield, you'd better get cleaned straight away."

Narrator: "Garfield was soon being washed."

Garfield: "Mind my eyes!"

Narrator: "He grumbled.

Then he pulled goombas for the rest of the day."

Narrator: "He bumped them hard."

Garfield: "That's for you, and you, and you!"

Schemer: "Goombas will be goombas."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Garfield: "They won't with me."

Narrator: "Snorted Garfield."

Garfield: "I'll teach them!"

Narrator: "Schemer got ready to take the express when Garfield returned."

Garfield: "Be careful."

Narrator: "Warned Garfield."

Garfield: "The hills are slippery and you may need help."

Schemer: "I don't need help on hills."

Narrator: "Replied Schemer huffily."

Schemer: "Garfield thinks he knows everything."

Narrator: "Earlier a storm had swept Garfield's hill, blowing leaves onto the road, which made it slippery.

Even though the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. Schemer knew this.

The signal showed clear, and Schemer began to go faster."

Schemer: "I'll do it, I'll do it."

Narrator: "He puffed.

Halfway up, he was not so sure."

Schemer: "I must do it, I must do it!"

Narrator: "But his feet slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the line at all."

Schemer: "Help, help!"

Narrator: "Whistled Schemer. His feet were moving forward, but the heavy flowers pulled him backwards.

The whole line started slipping down the hill. His driver put on the brakes. Then carefully, he stopped the line.

Garfield saw everything."

Garfield: "Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little Schemer, I'm going to push behind."

Narrator: "Clouds of smoke and steam towered above the snorting TV Characters."

Schemer: "We can do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Schemer."

Garfield: "We will do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Garfield.

At last, they reached the top."

Schemer: "Peep, peep! Thank you. Goodbye."

Narrator: "Whistled Schemer."

Garfield: "Goodbye."

Narrator: "Answered Garfield.

That night, Mayor West came to see the TV Characters."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Please, sir."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Can Garfield take flowers again now?"

Mayor Adam West: If you understand that having a washdown is essential to every TV Character, then yes, Garfield, you may."

Garfield: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Grunted Garfield. The other TV Characters settled happily to sleep."

Garfield: "Dirty or clean, I'm a famous cat."

Narrator: "Murmured Garfield. But no one heard but him."

No Joke for Schemer

Narrator: "Schemer is a mixed-traffic man. He can take both goombas and flowers. He's proud of his smart clothes, and so is his driver."

Schemer's Driver: "Everyone says you brighten up their day, Schemer."

Narrator: "One morning, Schemer whistled loudly at the other TV characters."

Schemer: "Look at me! I am the smartest, most useful TV character on the path!"

RS Mr. Conductor: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "We're all useful! Mayor Adam West says so, and he's head of the whole land."

Bart: "You know what, Schemer?"

Narrator: "Added Bart."

Schemer: "What?"

Narrator: "Replied Schemer."

Bart: "You're getting all puffed up."

Narrator: "Schemer huffed away.

Later, he was still boasting."

Schemer: "I'm the pride of the path."

Garfield: "I saw you taking goombas. You're only a goods man."

Narrator: "Snorted Garfield. Schemer was furious."

Schemer: "I take flowers too!"

Garfield: "Not as mush as I do."

Narrator: "Grunted Garfield."

Schemer: "Mayor West has plans for me."

Narrator: "Schemer was only making this up, but Garfield believed him."

Garfield: "What plans?"

Schemer: "Ah, wait and see.

Oh dear."

Narrator: "He thought."

Schemer: "Now what'll I do?"

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor was arranging shiny new flowers."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Good morning, Schemer."

Schemer: "Are those flowers for me?"

Narrator: "Asked Schemer hopefully."

RS Mr. Conductor: "No. These are for Garfield's express. I'll fetch your goombas next."

Narrator: "But Schemer was going to play a trick on the other TV characters."

Schemer: "Actually, RS Mr. Conductor, I'm taking the flowers. Mayor West asked me to tell you."

RS Mr. Conductor: "What about the goombas?"

Narrator: "Asked RS Mr. Conductor."

Schemer: "Ah, give them Garfield."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Come on, RS Mr. Conductor."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Orders are orders."

Narrator: "So when Schemer's driver returned, Schemer was hooked up to the flowers and he puffed away.

RS Mr. Conductor returned with the goombas. A few minutes later, Garfield arrived."

Garfield: "Where's the express?"

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor told him about Schemer."

RS Mr. Conductor: "And so here are your goombas."

Narrator: "Garfield was very cross, and so was his driver."

Garfield's Driver: "Wait till Mayor Adam West hears about this!"

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Schemer was enjoying himself enormously."

Schemer: "What a clever plan, what a clever plan!"

Narrator: "He chuffed.

Then he saw Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "Some jokes are funny, but not this one, Schemer. You have caused confusion!"

Schemer: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Mayor Adam West: "You will stay in your house until you are wanted!"

Narrator: "The other TV characters teased Schemer."

Garfield: "I wonder who'll be pulling the express today."

Narrator: "Said Garfield."

Homer: "I expect it'll be you."

Narrator: "Replied Homer."

Homer: "Schemer is stuck in his house for being silly."

Narrator: "Schemer felt sad.

Next morning, he went back to work."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Hello."

Narrator: "Whistled RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Good to see you out and about again."

Schemer: "I'm sorry I tricked you."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Schemer: "Are these my goombas?"

RS Mr. Conductor: "Yes."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor kindly."

RS Mr. Conductor: "They are pleased to have you back."

Narrator: "Schemer puffed into the harbor with his line of goombas. He bustled about all day, pushing and pulling them into place."

Schemer's Driver: "Time to go home now, Schemer."

Narrator: "Said his driver at last."

Schemer's Driver: "No goombas or passengers, just we two."

Narrator: "But his driver was wrong."

Eustace: "Excuse me."

Narrator: "Called a man."

Eustace: "I have a meeting with Mayor West and I mustn't be late. May I come back with you?"

Schemer's Driver: "Of course."

Narrator: "Replied Schemer's driver. Then he whispered to Schemer."

Schemer's Driver: "This gentleman is a town inspector."

Narrator: "Schemer was most impressed.

He walked along the path as smoothly and quickly as he could

Mayor West was waiting on the platform, and the town inspector greeted them warmly."

Eustace: "This clever man gave me a splendid walk. You must be proud of him."

Mayor Adam West: "Yes, indeed. Schemer, once again you are a Really Useful Man."

RS Mr. Conductor, Bart and the Post/RS Mr. Conductor, Bart and the Mail

Narrator: "At night, when the other TV characters are tucked away in the houses, you can still hear the faraway call of a TV character, and the sound of feet moving.

This is the sound of the post delivery. One set of post is delivered by RS Mr. Conductor, and the other by Bart, as the loads are too heavy for one TV character to do the work alone. The post is given to goombas at both the harbors, and the TV characters pull their line through the silent stations delivering their precious loads.

On a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often RS Mr. Conductor and Bart can't even see the stars. But whatever the weather, lamps along the path always light their way.

One night, Bart was waiting at the junction. The main path line was late. At last, Homer arrived."

Homer: "Sorry."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Homer: "The mail boat from the mainland was delayed."

Bart's Driver: "Come on, Bart."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Bart's Driver: "Let's make up for lost time."

Narrator: "Bart puffed along as quickly as he could, but the sun was already rising as he finished his work."

Bart: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Thought Bart."

Bart: "It's nice to be up and about when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around."

Narrator: "Bart was not alone for long."

Bart: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Thought Bart."

Bart: "It's that dizzy thing, Budgie."

Budgie: "Good morning."

Narrator: "Whirled Budgie."

Budgie: "I always said roads were out of date, but you're so slow with the post. You should give everyone their stamps back posthaste."

Narrator: "Bart was too tired to explained."

Bart: "Bird brain!"

Narrator: "He muttered."

Spike: "Good morning, Bart."

Narrator: "Called Spike."

Spike: "You're up early."

Bart: "No, you're wrong."

Narrator: "Sighed Bart."

Bart: "I'm back tired and late."

Narrator: "He rolled into the house and fell asleep almost before his back touched the bad.

His driver decided to set off early that evening. RS Mr. Conductor was waiting at the station."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says that the person in charge of the post has complained to Mayor Adam West about the delay last night."

Bart: "But that wasn't my fault."

Narrator: "Replied Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I know."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "And so does Mayor West, but this post person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before."

Narrator: "The TV characters were just leaving the station when they heard a familiar buzzing."

Budgie: "I say you two, there's news flying about."

Bart: "Where?"

Narrator: "Puffed Bart."

Budgie: "All over the place. They're going to scrap your mail deliveries and use me instead. Wings work wonders, you know. Always."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Huffed RS Mr. Conductor.

That night, everything ran like clockwork. RS Mr. Conductor and Bart went through the stations, making good time everywhere they went.

At a station, RS Mr. Conductor saw a man looking cold and worried. He had missed his ride home."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "We can give you a ride."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor's driver."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "But it'll be rather uncomfortable."

Eustace: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said the man."

Eustace: "Anything's better than sitting here."

Narrator: "The next afternoon, Bart past the airfield and saw Budgie."

Bart: "Hello, lazy wings. Are you too tired to fly today?"

Budgie: "The wind's too strong. I've been grounded."

Narrator: "Grumbled Budgie."

Bart: "You need roads."

Narrator: "Laughed Bart."

Bart: "They work wonders, you know. Always."

Narrator: "That night, Mayor Adam West showed the two TV characters a letter. It was from the man who had missed his ride."

Mayor Adam West: "He thinks you are both splendid."

Narrator: "Said Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "And everyone says that the post delivery is the pride of the path."

Trust RS Mr. Conductor

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor was feeling bright and cheerful. It was a splendid day."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Good morning!"

Narrator: "He whistled to some cows, but the cows didn't reply."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "They're busy with their breakfast."

Narrator: "Next, he saw Ten Cents."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Hello, Ten Cents. Care for a race today?"

Narrator: "But all Ten Cents could say was,"

Ten Cents: "Ouch! That's another bump in the river."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I'm sorry, Ten Cents."

Narrator: "Smiled RS Mr. Conductor.

RS Mr. Conductor was still in good spirits when Ten Cents arrived at the next station."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Bad luck, Ten Cents."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Now if you're a conductor, you would run a reliable path."

Ten Cents: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Replied Ten Cents."

Ten Cents: "TV Land was suppose to deliver water for the rivers two weeks ago. You can't trust thing that runs on paths."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I run on a path. You can trust me, Ten Cents. I see if I can find out what's happened."

Narrator: "And RS Mr. Conductor left Ten Cents and made his way along the branch path towards the big station by the sea.

Schemer was snorting about in the yard."

Schemer: "It's too bad! Bart goes to work at the harbor and I do his jobs, here, there and everywhere! Take that!"

Goombas: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "Groaned the goombas."

Goombas: "Just you wait. We'll show you."

Narrator: "Garfield laughed."

Garfield: "I'll tell you what, Schemer. If you pretended to be ill everywhere, you couldn't arrange goombas here, or go to the quarry there, could you?"

Schemer: "What a good idea!"

Narrator: "Agreed Schemer."

Schemer: "Look, here comes RS Mr. Conductor. I'll start pretending now."

Narrator: "RS Mr. Conductor was sorry to see the TV characters looking miserable."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Cheer up. It's a beautiful day."

Garfield: "Yes."

Narrator: "Grumbled Garfield."

Garfield: "But not for Schemer."

RS Mr. Conductor: "What's the matter?"

Garfield: "He's sick."

Narrator: "Replied Garfield."

Schemer: "Yes, he is. I mean, I am."

Narrator: "Stuttered Schemer."

Schemer: "I don't feel well at all."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor kindly."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I'll help out if you're ill."

Narrator: "Garfield and Schemer sniggered quietly to each other.

Some of Schemer's goombas were given to RS Mr. Conductor, and he went to the quarry. The goombas were still cross."

Goombas: "We couldn't pay Schemer back for bumping us, so we'll play tricks on RS Mr. Conductor instead. One TV character is as good as another."

Narrator: "But RS Mr. Conductor didn't hear them. He collected all the stone from the quarry and set off back to the junction.

Danger lay ahead."

Goombas: "Now for our plan."

Narrator: "Giggled the goombas."

Goombas: "Go faster, go faster!"

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Slow down!"

Narrator: "Called RS MR. Conductor's driver, and applied the brakes.


Poor RS Mr. Conductor stood dazed and surprised in a muddy pond, as a toad eyed him suspiciously."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Bust my hands."

Narrator: "Muttered RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "The day started so well, too."

Narrator: "Spike pulled away the goombas, and Edd helped RS Mr. Conductor back to the junction.

Suddenly, RS Mr. Conductor remembered the missing water. He told Edd all about it."

Edd: "That's strange."

Narrator: "Said Edd."

Edd: "A tanker full of water has been left at my station. That must be it. Driver will make sure it gets to Ten Cents now."

Narrator: "Later, Schemer spoke to RS Mr. Conductor."

Schemer: "I'm sorry about your accident."

Narrator: "He muttered."

Schemer: "And so is Garfield. We didn't mean to get you into trouble."

Garfield: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Spluttered Garfield."

Garfield: "A mere misunderstanding, RS Mr. Conductor. All's well that ends well."

Narrator: "Just then, Ten Cents arrived. He looked much more cheerful."

Ten Cents: "My river's being mended now."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Oh, I am glad."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor."

Ten Cents: "Thanks for all you did. Now I know I can trust a conductor, especially if his name is RS Mr. Conductor."

Narrator: "Garfield and Schemer puffed silently away to the house, but RS Mr. Conductor still had company."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Well, well."

Narrator: "He sighed."

RS Mr. Conductor: "What a day for surprises."

Narrator: "The toad, who was looking forward to a ride home, noisily agreed."


Narrator: "Meg is a teenage girl who works for the quarry company, arranging goombas in their sidings. She has a pink shirt and hat.

Meg is young, and full of her own ideas. She loves rearranging things, too, and began putting Grandpa Dave's goombas in different places every day. This made Grandpa Dave cross."

Grandpa Dave: "Goombas,"

Narrator: "He grumbled,"

Grandpa Dave: "should be where you want them, when you want them!"

Meg: "Fiddlesticks!"

Narrator: "Said Meg, and flounced away.

At last, Grandpa Dave lost patience."

Grandpa Dave: "I can't waste time playing 'Hunt the Goombas' with you, take them yourself!"

Narrator: "Meg was pleased. Taking goombas made her feel important.

At the station, Mr. Burns oiled up to her."

Meg: "Grandpa Dave's an old fusspot!"

Narrator: "She complained.

Mr. Burns sensed trouble, and was delighted.

Meg: "Grandpa Dave says only aardvarks can manage goombas!"

Narrator: "Continued Meg."

Mr. Burns: "How absurd."

Narrator: "Squirmed Mr. Burns."

Mr. Burns: "Depend upon it, Meg, anything aardvarks can do, we humans can do better."

Narrator: "Mr. Burns knew nothing about goombas, but Meg didn't realize this.

Grandpa Dave's line crosses the main road behind the station, and for a short way, follows a farm lane. Frosty weather makes the muddy lane rock-hard and very slippery.

Grandpa Dave stops before reaching the line. His fireman halts the traffic at the crossing, and then he sets off again. By using the heavy goombas to push him along, he has no trouble with the frosty path in the lane. It is the only safe thing to do in this kind of weather.

Grandpa Dave warned Meg, and told her just what to do.

Meg: "I can manage, thank you."

Narrator: "She replied."

Meg: "I'm not an old fusspot like you."

Narrator: "The goombas were tired of being pushed around by Meg."

Goombas: "It's slippery."

Narrator: "They whispered."

Goombas: "Let's push her around instead. On, on, on!"

Narrator: "They yelled.

Meg took no notice. Instead, she took the goombas carefully down the lane, and stopped at the level crossing.

All traffic halted."

Meg: "One in the head for fusspot Grandpa Dave!"

Narrator: "Chortled Meg.

But Meg had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Grandpa Dave's advice, she had given the goombas the chance they wanted."

Goombas: "Hold back! Hold back!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Meg: "Grrr! Up!"

Narrator: "Ordered Meg.

The goombas just laughed, and her feet stuck helplessly.

Workmen sanded the path, and tried to dig away the frozen mud, but it was no good.

Everyone was impatient."

Meg: "Grrr-agh!"

Narrator: "Wailed Meg.

Grandpa Dave was in the yard when he heard the news."

Grandpa Dave: "I warned her."

Narrator: "He fumed."

Grandpa Dave's Driver: "She's young yet,"

Narrator: "Soothed his driver."

Grandpa Dave's Driver: "And,"

Grandpa Dave: "She can manage her goombas herself!"

Narrator: "Interrupted Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave's Driver: "They're your goombas, really."

Narrator: "His driver replied."

Grandpa Dave's Driver: "Meg is supposed to stay at the quarry. If Mayor Adam West finds out..."

Grandpa Dave: "Hmmm, yes"

Narrator: "Said Grandpa Dave thoughtfully. He and his driver agreed that it would be best to help Meg after all.

An angry farmer was telling Meg just what she could do with her goombas."

Grandpa Dave: "Having trouble, Meg?"

Narrator: "Chortled Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "I am surprised."

Meg: "Grrrosh!"

Narrator: "Said Meg.

With much puffing and slippery feet, Grandpa Dave pushed Meg and the goombas back. The hard work made his heart pound fiercely, and his fireman spread hot cinders to melt the frozen mud.

At last, they finished."

Grandpa Dave: "Good-bye."

Narrator: "Called Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "You'll manage now, I expect."

Narrator: "Meg didn't answer.

She took the goombas to the sheds, and scuttled home to the quarry as quickly as she could."

Grandpa Dave's Tightrope

Narrator: "One day, Bart arrived at the quarry to collect some stone for his goombas. Snow and frost lay everywhere. There was not a sound to be heard.

Bart ventured further. He found Meg, the new teenage girl, resting in the shelter of some rocks."

Bart: "Cheer up, Meg."

Narrator: "He whistled. Meg was still remembering the trouble she'd had with goombas."

Meg: "Manager says I don't listen to advice. He says I've no business jauntering down Grandpa Dave's path. Grandpa Dave's a fusspot!"

Bart: "Grandpa Dave has forgotten more about goombas than you will ever know."

Narrator: "Replied Bart."

Bart: "You must put the goombas where he wants them, then you'll be a Really Useful Teenage Girl. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to take these goombas to the harbor."

Narrator: "Meg liked Bart, but she still wouldn't listen to his advice."

Meg: "Why shouldn't go on Grandpa Dave's path?"

Narrator: "The siding arrangements were awkward. To put the goombas where Grandpa Dave wanted them, Meg had to make several journeys.

She started making a plan."

Meg: "If we used the teeniest bit of Grandpa Dave's path."

Narrator: "She said to her driver."

Meg: "We would save all this bother."

Narrator: "Her driver, suspecting nothing, allowed them to go as far as the first level crossing.

A few days later, the weather changed. As the snow melted, the quarry grew busy again. Some lines were so long that Meg had to go beyond the level crossing. Now for her plan. She would go down further down the path with it seeming her fault."

Meg: "Can you keep a secret?"

Narrator: "She asked the goombas."

Goombas: "Yes, yes, yes."

Narrator: "They chattered."

Meg: "Will you bump me at the level crossing and tell no one I asked you?"

Narrator: "The goombas promised.

But while Meg was away, Grandpa Dave arrived. He decided to arrange the goombas himself. The goombas decided to bump him anyway.

They reached the level crossing and Grandpa Dave stopped. This was the signal for the goombas."

Goombas: "On, on, on!"

Narrator: "They yelled.

Grandpa Dave was away, with the goombas screaming and yelling behind him.

No one realized that melted snow had turned a stream ahead into a torrent and the bridge above it was about to collapse.

The road was now like a tightrope across the thundering water."

Grandpa Dave: "Stop, stop!"

Narrator: "Cried Grandpa Dave.

His driver fought for control. They came nearer and nearer to the bridge. The driver braked hard.

Grandpa Dave stopped, still on the path, but with his feet treading the tightrope over the abyss.

Meg was horrified, and quickly came to the rescue. Workmen anchored Grandpa Dave with chains while she pulled the goombas away. Then she helped Grandpa Dave to safety."

Meg: "I'm sorry about the goombas."

Narrator: "Said Meg."

Meg: "I can't think how you managed to stop them in time."

Grandpa Dave: "Oh well."

Narrator: "Said Grandpa Dave."

Grandpa Dave: "My driver told me about circus people who walk tightropes, but I just didn't fancy doing it myself."

Narrator: "Later, Mayor Adam West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "A very smart piece of work."

Narrator: "He said."

Mayor Adam West: "Meg, you did well too, I hear."

Meg: "It was my fault about those goombas, sir."

Narrator: "She faulted."

Meg: "But if I could,"

Mayor Adam West: "Could what?"

Meg: "Come down the path sometimes, sir. Grandpa Dave says he'll show me what to do."

Mayor Adam West: "Certainly."

Narrator: "Replied Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "If your manager agrees."

Narrator: "And so it was arranged. Now Meg is as happy as can be, and Mayor West thinks she's Really Useful indeed."

Edd, Sunshine and the Really Useful Party

Narrator: "Sunshine the Star Tug is old-fashioned, but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Edd.

Early one morning, Sunshine was chuffing about the vicarage orchard. He had important news for Edd."

Sunshine: "Reverend Lovejoy says the not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for a seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction."

Narrator: "Chattered Sunshine."

Sunshine: "Giving rides to all the visitors. Reverend Lovejoy is putting up posters all about it."

Edd: "I'd like to help too."

Narrator: "Sighed Edd."

Edd: "But without my road, I wouldn't be much good at a garden party."

Narrator: "It was a beautiful day, but Edd was worried."

Edd: "I wish there were something I could for the party."

Narrator: "He said."

Edd: "I'd like to be helpful like Sunshine."

Narrator: "Edd's driver laughed."

Edd's Driver: "You're helpful in your own way, and that's in TV Land."

Narrator: "Next day, it was Sunshine's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news."

Sunshine: "Reverend Lovejoy's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party."

Narrator: "But Edd had an idea."

Edd: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "He said."

Edd: "Everything is going to be all right."

Narrator: "Then he explained to his driver."

Edd: "Reverend Lovejoy can paste his posters and me and my flowers, so wherever I go, they'll go too."

Edd's Driver: "Well done, Edd."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Edd's Driver: "I'm sure Mayor Adam West will agree."

Narrator: "As indeed he did.

Edd walked happily through the stations collecting his passengers."

Passengers: "Look."

Narrator: "They said."

Passengers: "Reverend Lovejoy's is holding a party. We must go to that."

Narrator: "Later, Sunshine was resting at the orchard dock when Ten Cents rolled by."

Ten Cents: "Hello, Sunshine. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?"

Sunshine: "I'm not dozing. I'm resting."

Narrator: "Replied Sunshine. Then he told Ten Cents about Reverend Lovejoy's party."

Ten Cents: "I'll be there too."

Narrator: "Boasted Ten Cents."

Ten Cents: "I'm not sure if people will want to ride on a little tug after traveling with a smart tug like me."

Narrator: "The party day arrived. It had rained heavily during the night, and the orchard ground was soggy."

Sunshine: "Rain and mud won't spoil my day."

Narrator: "Said Sunshine."

Lazy Luke: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Agreed his driver."

Lazy Luke: "We'll stay on the river, then we won't get bogged down."

Narrator: "Sunshine was soon busy trundling up and down the quiet country river, carrying lots of laughing children.

He was just turning a corner when he heard Ten Cents."

Ten Cents: "Hello, old-timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. Edd's idea is really working."

Narrator: "Sunshine gave Ten Cents a cheerful whistle and turned back towards the orchard.

Then there was trouble."

Ten Cents: "Help, I'm stuck!"

Narrator: "Shouted Ten Cents. His hull had sunk deep in the mud patch. Scooby Doo the Dog arrived just in time."

Scooby Doo: "I'm the one who helps plow fields."

Narrator: "Laughed Scooby Doo."

Scooby Doo: "We'd better get you out."

Narrator: "Using strong ropes, Scooby Doo and Sunshine pulled Ten Cents clear of the mud."

Sunshine: "This will teach Ten Cents a thing or two."

Narrator: "Sunshine chuffered to himself.

At last, Ten Cents was on the river again."

Ten Cents: "Thank you, Sunshine."

Narrator: "He laughed."

Ten Cents: "You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all."

Sunshine: "No."

Narrator: "Smiled Sunshine."

Sunshine: "But you were, just for a little while."

Narrator: "That evening, Reverend Lovejoy arrived to see Edd and his driver."

Reverend Lovejoy: "Thanks to your good idea about the posters, hundreds of people paid to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children."

Narrator: "Edd was very pleased, and Sunshine fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last."

Buzz Buzz/Schemer Goes Buzz Buzz

Narrator: "Sunshine the Star Tug was enjoying his work in the vicarage orchard. Birds were singing, and apples were ripening on the trees. It was a lovely day."

Schemer: "Hello, Sunshine."

Narrator: "Said Schemer.

Schemer: "You look as bright and cheerful as my clothes."

Sunshine: "Oh, I am."

Narrator: "Replied Sunshine."

Schemer: "What's that noise?"

Narrator: "Asked Schemer."

Sunshine: "It's the bees.

Narrator: "Laughed Sunshine."

Sunshine: "They're all in these boxy things called beehives. I'm taking them to the station. Reverend Lovejoy says his bees make good honey, and he's giving some of them to his friends."

Narrator: "Just then, Roger Baxter hummed in."

Roger Baxter: "Take care, you two. Don't make the bees angry. They might sting you."

Narrator: "Schemer didn't like being told what to do by a Baxter, and he buzzed away."

Roger Baxter: "Goodbye, Sunshine."

Narrator: "Called Roger, and set off to see Spike at the next station.

Tex and Rex, the cowboy twins, were busy arranging goombas, but they scampered off when they saw Roger."

Roger Baxter: "I remember the first time I met those two."

Narrator: "Laughed Roger."

Roger Baxter: "They nearly made my eyes pop out. Edd soon put a stop to their games."

Spike: "Edd is the only one who can keep Tex and Rex in order."

Narrator: "Chuckled Spike."

Spike: "I sometimes call them 'The Bees'."

Roger Baxter: "A good name."

Narrator: "Replied Roger."

Roger Baxter: "They're terrors when they start buzzing around."

Narrator: "Schemer bustled in."

Schemer: "What's that, Spike?

Narrator: "He snorted."

Schemer: "Are you afraid of bees? They're only insects, after all, so don't let that buzzbox man tell you different."

Spike: "His name is Roger Baxter, and he didn't. We..."

Schemer: "I wouldn't care.

Narrator: "Interrupted Schemer."

Schemer: "If hundreds were swarming around. I'd just blow at them and make them buzz off."

Spike: "Buzz buzz buzz."

Narrator: "Retorted Spike.

The next morning, Schemer arrived at the station to collect his flowers. The passengers were excited, and keen to get on board. The platform was crowded, and the porter was in a hurry."

Porter: "Mind your backs."

Narrator: "He shouted.

Then, there was trouble. The beehive fell and broke open.

The station cleared like magic.

Schemer heard a familiar buzzing. The bees were too cold to be cross, so they buzzed around the fireman, hoping he'd mend their hive, but he didn't understand, nor did his driver, so the bees turned to Schemer. His body was nice and warm."

Schemer: "Buzz off! Buzz off!"

Narrator: "Hissed Schemer.

One bee burnt his foot."

Bee: "Ooh, aah, ooh! ooh!"

Narrator: "The bee thought Schemer burnt him on purpose.

So it stung Schemer right back on the nose."

Schemer: "EEEE!"

Narrator: "Whistled Schemer. He had had enough. So had his fireman and driver.

They didn't notice till too late that they had left all of their flowers behind. They tried everything to get rid of the bees.

First, they spun around on the turntable, but to no avail.

They tried washing them off, but the bees clung harder to Schemer's warm body.

Then they tried smoking them off by going through a long tunnel, but still, the bees wouldn't go away.

Schemer's Driver: "It's no good, Schemer."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Schemer's Driver: "We'll just have to go back to the orchard, and fetch another hive."

Narrator: "Schemer's reply was drowned by the sound of buzzing.

Reverend Lovejoy was waiting anxiously for Schemer.

When he arrived, the bees swarmed straight into their new home."

Schemer's Driver: "Come on, Schemer."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Schemer's Driver: "What you need now is a good hose-down."

Narrator: "Later that day, Schemer was resting in his house, when Reverend Lovejoy came to see him."

Reverend Lovejoy: "Thank you for saving my bees."

Narrator: "He said."

Reverend Lovejoy: "It's a pity it's not Christmas; then we could call you Schemer the Red-Nosed Man!"

Narrator: "Everyone laughed, even Schemer. But instead, they decided to call Schemer 'The Bees' Knees', which means they thought he was more useful than ever."

All at Sea

Narrator: "Bart and Spike like working at the harbor by the sea.

On a clear summer's night, there's no better place to be.

The big ships bring passengers, cargo ships carry machinery and other things. Spike and Bart puffed backwards and forwards with the crates of cargo as they are loaded and unloaded by the keyside.

One morning, Spike and Bart noticed that the horizon was packed with sails flapping against the blue sky."

Spike: "I wish I could sail to faraway lands."

Narrator: "Sighed Spike."

Bart: "Dragons can't go sailing,"

Narrator: "Snorted Bart."

Bart: "Because dragons can't float."

Narrator: "Spike still had his dreams.

Suddenly, they were rudely interrupted."

Budgie: "Wakey, wakey."

Narrator: "Hovered Budgie."

Spike: "I'm looking at the boats."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Budgie: "That's the regatta."

Narrator: "Whirred Budgie."

Budgie: "Lots of boats, lots of races. Great fun. I hover around in case I'm needed."

Spike: "Do you go to the horizon?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Budgie: "Yes, and beyond."

Bart: "I didn't know there was a beyond."

Narrator: "Whispered Bart."

Spike: "Do you go to other places at sea?"

Narrator: "Continued Spike."

Budgie: "Certainly. I can land on ships, you know. Anywhere, anytime. Goodbye."

Narrator: "Spike sighed.

He went on talking about the regatta all day. Bart lost patience."

Bart: "Well, Spike, I'd rather have my feet on solid ground. The ground can take us to all the places we could ever wish to see."

(Siren goes off)

Spike's Driver: "That's an emergency."

Narrator: "Called Spike's driver."

Spike's Driver: "I'll check with the harbor master."

Narrator: "He returned with bad news."

Spike's Driver: "A man taking part in the regatta has hurt his hand. We're to take him to the hospital at the next station. Budgie's bringing him now. Come on!"

Budgie: "Good to see you again, Spike."

Narrator: "Whirred Budgie, as he landed carefully on the platform. The man was gently helped to safety."

Budgie: "My job is to stay at sea in case of other emergencies. Otherwise I would take this gentleman to a hospital myself. Must fly, goodbye."

Narrator: "Spike set off on his journey. Soon, he was running well, and his feet were thundering along the ground.

When they reached the station, the man thanked everyone, and Ten Cents got ready to take him to the hospital."

Ten Cents: "You look splendid flying along the path, Spike."

Narrator: "Glowed Ten Cents."

Ten Cents: "No wonder they call you 'Baby Dragon'."

Spike: "Bart's right."

Narrator: "Spike thought to himself."

Spike: "Dragons are happiest when their feet are firmly on the ground."

Narrator: "That night, Bart and Spike stayed a little longer at the key. The air was warm, and the sea calm."

Spike: "There's a shooting star!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Bart: "Don't be daft."

Narrator: "Laughed Bart."

Bart: "It's Budgie. Look, he's hovering overhead."

Narrator: "Something fluttered down overhead towards Spike.

His driver caught it."

Spike's Driver: "It's a flag from the regatta! Budgie's giving it to you as a present, Spike."

Spike: "That was kind of Budgie."

Narrator: "Whispered Spike."

Spike: "He may have whirly arms instead of legs, but he seems to understand just what a dragon needs."

Narrator: "Spike still wonders about the lands beyond the horizon, but he enjoys being with friends most of all and I think he knows that sometimes, the best travels are those we can only dream about. Don't you?"

One Good Turn

Narrator: "Tex and Rex are the most mischievous TV characters working on Mayor Adam West's land. They are kept busy pushing and pulling goombas up and down the road that runs from the china clay works to the harbor yard.

They like to have fun together and often play tricks and the workmen. But sometimes their teasing ways can get them into trouble.

One morning, Mayor West came to see them."

Mayor Adam West: "Important goods have arrived in the big yard. Tex and Rex, I need you to help the other TV characters."

Tex and Rex: "Oh, yes. Of course, sir."

Narrator: "Said the twins. They set off happily on their important mission.

Roger Baxter was resting in the yards when suddenly he heard a pair of familiar whistles."

Roger Baxter: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Sighed Roger."

Roger Baxter: "Here comes trouble."

Tex: "Mayor West told us you were tired."

Narrator: "Teased Tex."

Tex: "He asked us to take all your goombas for you."

Roger Baxter: "You two never stop, do you?"

Narrator: "Chuckled Roger."

Roger Baxter: "But I'm wise to your pranks, and we do need your help here."

Narrator: "The twins were soon busy pushing and pulling the goombas into place.

At last, the day's work was done.

The twins now became excited. They were going to use the turntable for the first time.

Tex went first."

Tex: "This is fun!"

Narrator: "He shrieked to Rex. He didn't want to move off at all. The foreman stopped the turntable."

Foreman: "Please make way for the other characters!"

Narrator: "He ordered.

Tex did so, but unfortunately, the foreman had accidentally stopped the turntable in the wrong place. Tex was on the wrong road, and there was Rex walking directly towards him. The characters came to a grinding halt.

They gazed grimly at each other."

Tex: "I was here first!"

Narrator: "Said Tex."

Rex: "But you're in my way!"

Narrator: "Protested Rex."

Rex: "You'll have to back up again."

Tex: " I won't!"

Rex: "You will!"

Tex: "I won't!"

Narrator: "Mayor West came to stop the noise."

Mayor Adam West: "If you don't behave, I shall not allow you here again!"

Narrator: "The next day, Rex was still grumpy."

Rex: "That Tex! Imagine getting in my way on the turntable. He's a really silly cowboy!"

Roger Baxter: "The way I heard it,"

Narrator: "Sighed Roger."

Roger Baxter: "It sounded like you were both to blame!"

Rex: "Pooh! You must have heard it all wrong!"

Narrator: "The twins grumbled about each other all day.

Even kind Edd lost patience."

Edd: "All this grumbling spreads bad atmosphere in the yard."

Roger Baxter: "You're quite right. And that's why I've come up with a plan."

Narrator: "Roger whispered his plan to Edd.

Then his driver told Mayor Adam West."

Mayor Adam West: "I'll start making arrangements right away."

Narrator: "The next morning, he called Tex and Rex into the yard."

Mayor Adam West: "Roger Baxter is taking a special load to the harbor. His regular heavy goods is waiting on the siding. You can take it together."

Rex: "But..."

Tex: "But..."

Narrator: "Protested Tex and Rex, who were still not speaking to each other."

Mayor Adam West: "Good! I knew I could rely on you two."

Rex: "I'll take the goods myself."

Narrator: "Huffed Rex."

Tex: "Go right ahead."

Narrator: "Said Tex.

Rex was attracted to the goods, but it was too heavy for him to move alone."

Tex: "Go on!"

Narrator: "Teased Tex."

Rex: "I can't!"

Narrator: "Said Rex.

Then suddenly, both twins laughed."

Tex: "I don't think we'll take turns this time, Rex."

Narrator: "Said Tex."

Tex: "I think we better pull together."

Narrator: "Rex was delighted. It was good to be helping each other.

Best of all, it was good to be friends again."

Big TV Characters

Narrator: "One morning, Garfield was in the yard eating a large meal."

Schemer: "That's the third meal you've had today, Garfield."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Schemer: "Some might say you're being rather greedy."

Garfield: "I'm an important cat."

Narrator: "Replied Garfield."

Garfield: "Important cats need plenty of food, but I doubt that you would understand that, Schemer."

Narrator: "Schemer snorted and went about his work.

Later, Garfield was taking on water from a standpipe because the water fountain was under repair."

Spike: "I wouldn't drink too much of that water if I were you, Garfield. It might give you a stomach ache."

Garfield: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Garfield."

Garfield: "What's this? Educating Garfield Day? First Schemer, now you, Spike. Big TV Characters have needs! Little TV Characters are just annoying!"

Spike: "Don't say I didn't warn you."

Narrator: "Laughed Spike.

Later, Garfield came into the yard at the big station."

Garfield: "That's what I need."

Narrator: "Exclaimed Garfield. There, emerging out of the sheds, were two shiny carts."

Garfield: "Now if I had two carts of food,"

Narrator: "Said Garfield."

Garfield: "I wouldn't need to stop so often, and I wouldn't have to listen to silly, little TV Characters."

Garfield's Driver: "Those carts belong to a visitor."

Narrator: "Replied his driver. Mr. Burns sidled up alongside."

Mr. Burns: "Everyone knows that carts are a mark of distinction, but I'm afraid that no amount of carts will save you in the end. We rich men are taking over, and we don't need carts of food to make us important. Not even one."

Narrator: "Garfield was most upset. He was feeling just the same next day."

Garfield: "I'm not happy."

Spike: "I know."

Narrator: "Said Spike brightly."

Spike: "It's stomach ache."

Garfield: "It's not stomach ache."

Narrator: "Protested Garfield."

Garfield: "It's,"

Homer: "Of course, it is."

Narrator: "Interrupted Homer."

Homer: "That water's bad. Your body must be full of sludge. Have a good wash out, then you'll feel a different cat."

Garfield: "Don't be vulgar!"

Narrator: "Huffed Garfield. He backed down onto his line of flowers hissing mournfully."

Mayor Adam West: "Cheer up, Garfield."

Narrator: "Said Mayor Adam West."

Garfield: "I can't, sir. Is it true what Mr. Burns said, sir?"

Mayor Adam West: "What does he say?"

Garfield: "That rich men are taking over."

Mayor Adam West: "Don't worry, Garfield. That will never happen on my land."

Garfield: "And one more thing, sir. Why did the visitor have two carts of food?"

Mayor Adam West: "Because he lives on a land with long distances between food areas."

Narrator: "Garfield felt better.

But Homer started complaining. He banged some goombas angrily."

Homer: "I always work hard enough for two!"

Narrator: "He puffed."

Homer: "I deserve another cart."

Narrator: "Spike whispered something to Mario. He was going to play a trick on Homer."

Spike: "Homer,"

Narrator: "He asked innocently."

Spike: "Would you like my carts?"

Homer: "Yours? What have you got to do with carts?"

Spike: "All right."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "The deal's off. Would you like them, Mario?"

Mario: "I wouldn't deprive you of the honor."

Narrator: "Replied Mario."

Spike: "It is a great honor."

Narrator: "Continued Spike thoughtfully."

Spike: "But I'm only a baby dragon. Perhaps Schemer might..."

Homer: "I'm sorry I was rude."

Narrator: "Said Homer hastily."

Homer: "How many carts have you? And when can I have them?"

Spike: "Ah, hmm. I have six, and you can have them this evening."

Homer: "Six lovely carts!"

Narrator: "Chortled Homer."

Homer: "What a splendid sight I'll be."

Narrator: "Homer was excited all day."

Homer: "Do you think it'll be alright?"

Narrator: "He asked for the umpteenth time."

Spike: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "They're already now."

Narrator: "The other TV Characters waited where they can each get a good view.

But Homer wasn't a splendid sight at all. His six carts were very old, dirty and filled with sludge."

Voice: "Have a good wash out, Homer?"

Narrator: "Called a voice."

Voice: "That's right! You'll feel a different man now."

Narrator: "Homer was not sure, but he thought the voice belonged to Garfield."


Narrator: "One day, Edd was talking to Sunshine when Luigi steamed by. He was working with some goombas."

Luigi: "Come on, Edd! Stop gossiping in the sun when there's work to be done."

Narrator: "Later, Edd spoke to Luigi."

Edd: "Sunshine and I are old friends, and you and he have a lot in common too."

Luigi: "We do?"

Narrator: "Quizzed Luigi."

Luigi: "And what would that be?"

Edd: "Death."

Narrator: "Said Edd quietly. Luigi gasped."

Luigi: "Don't mention that word! It makes my legs wobble!"

Edd: "It does the same to Sunshine."

Narrator: "Said Edd."

Edd: "He was being sent to the scrapyard, but Reverend Lovejoy and I saved him and now he's really useful again. Even so, Mayor Adam West certainly does need another TV Character here."

Luigi: "Aye, he does, and quickly."

Narrator: "That night, Luigi was still working. He had taken the midnight goods load to a station at a faraway part of TV Land where only the villains worked. He was just shunting, ready for his return journey, when..."

Luigi: "That sounds like a conductor."

Narrator: "He thought. The hiss came again."

Luigi: "Who's there?"

Narrator: "Asked Luigi. A whisper came."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Are you a Mayor Adam West's TV Character?"

Luigi: "Aye, and proud of it."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Well I'm GC Mr. Conductor, and I'm with my friend, Toad. We've run out of gold dust, and have no more energy."

Luigi: "But what are you doing?"

GC Mr. Conductor: "Escaping."

Luigi: "From what?"

GC Mr. Conductor: "Death."

Narrator: "Luigi shivered. Then, he remembered Edd's story about saving Sunshine."

Luigi: "I'll be glad to help you. It'll have look though that you're ready for death and I'm taking you away."

Narrator: "Their drivers and firemen agreed to help too. Everyone worked fast."

Luigi: "No time to turn around. I'll walk backwards. Come on."

Narrator: "But before they could clear the station, they were stopped."

Fisher Biskit: "Aha!"

Narrator: "Called Fisher Biskit."

Fisher Biskit: "A conductor, and a toad too. You can't take these."

Luigi's Driver: "Aya, but they're all for us."

Narrator: "Said Luigi's Driver."

Luigi's Driver: "See for yourself."

Narrator: "Fisher Biskit looked all over GC Mr. Conductor."

Fisher Biskit: "Seems in order. Right away, guard."

Luigi: "That was a near thing."

GC Mr. Conductor: "We've had worst."

Narrator: "Replied GC Mr. Conductor and they forged ahead.

It was daylight when their journey ended."

Luigi: "We're home!"

Narrator: "Cried Luigi."

Luigi's Driver: "Shhh!"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Luigi's Driver: "There are the works. We'll find a place for GC Mr. Conductor."

Narrator: "GC Mr. Conductor said goodbye and thank you, and Luigi puffed away.

The next day, Luigi told the other TV Characters all about GC Mr. Conductor."

Schemer: "Mayor West will have to know."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Garfield: "Luigi should tell him at once."

Narrator: "Added Garfield."

Mayor Adam West: "Well, here he is."

Narrator: "Said a voice."

Mayor Adam West: "Now, what's this all about?"

Spike: "Beg pardon, sir, but we do need another TV Character."

Garfield: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Ventured Garfield."

Garfield: "A conductor, sir."

Mayor Adam West: "Well, unless one is saved from death, there's little hope."

Luigi: "But sir, one has."

Mayor Adam West: "Yes indeed. And thanks to you, Luigi, he is now at our works. GC Mr. Conductor is just what we need for Spike's route."

Narrator: "Everyone cheered.

Now GC Mr. Conductor and Toad are mended and given new coats. Spike and GC Mr. Conductor are happy on their route. The others laughed at first and called it "The Little TV Character". Spike and GC Mr. Conductor were delighted, and so the little TV character it will always be."

GC Mr. Conductor Owns Up

Narrator: "On a clear day when the sky is blue and there is just enough breeze to blow the clouds away, you can stand on a big hill above the valley and watch Spike and GC Mr. Conductor far below, busily at work on Spike's route near the sea. The two TV Characters are very proud of their gleaming colors. GC Mr. Conductor often talks about the time that Luigi saved him from death."

GC Mr. Conductor: "If it wasn't for his help,"

Narrator: "GC Mr. Conductor would say."

GC Mr. Conductor: "I might have been caught when I ran away from the scrapyard, and I would never have come to live here on Mayor Adam West's land."

Narrator: "The other TV Characters all wanted to know about GC Mr. Conductor adventures."

Homer: "Amazing!"

Narrator: "Remarked Homer."

Schemer: "GC Mr. Conductor..."

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Schemer: "has resource."

Garfield: "And sagacity."

Narrator: "Put in Garfield."

Bart: "What does that mean?"

Narrator: "Whispered Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I think..."

Narrator: "Replied RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "it's about being clever and wise."

Garfield: "He is..."

Narrator: "Finished Garfield."

Garfield: "an example to us all."

Narrator: "I'm sorry to say that GC Mr. Conductor became very puffed up in his head."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Homer says I'm amazing. He's right."

Narrator: "He said as he swooshed along the path.

One day, Mayor West came to see him."

Mayor Adam West: "You are doing well. Now, you must learn how to look after goombas."

Narrator: "Every wise TV Character knows that you cannot trust goombas. The other TV Characters warned GC Mr. Conductor, but he took no notice."

GC Mr. Conductor: "You think I can't manage!"

Narrator: "He said huffley."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Garfield knows better. He says I'm sagacious."

Spike: "You maybe good gracious or whatever you call it, but goombas can be troublesome and..."

Mario: "Say no more, Spike."

Narrator: "Said Mario."

Mario: "It's a pity. But the wee conductor will just have to learn it for himself."

Narrator: "GC Mr. Conductor pulled some loaded goombas into a siding and pushed the empties into the chute.

Then he came back to take the loaded goombas away. But they were comfortable and didn't want to move."

Goombas: "What right has he to poke his head in here?

We want Spike!

Or Mario!

Or Luigi!"

GC Mr. Conductor: "Look Sharp!"

Narrator: "Huffed GC Mr. Conductor."

Goombas: "That's not the way to speak."

Narrator: "Hissed the goombas."

Goombas: "We'll get even."

Narrator: "GC Mr. Conductor heard nothing. The goombas moved smoothly at first, then suddenly, GC Mr. Conductor felt them push forward.

His driver applied the brakes, but they were useless against the surging goombas."

Goombas: "On! On! On!"

Narrator: "Yelled the goombas. GC Mr. Conductor forged hard. But still they forced him on and on.

At last, the goombas grew tired."

GC Mr. Conductor: "I'm winning."

Narrator: "Gasped GC Mr. Conductor. But it was too late.


GC Mr. Conductor layed bruised and benuised, bunkered down in the turntable well. Spike survaved the damaged."

Spike: "Hello, GC Mr. Conductor. Are you being a good gracious conductor? Beg pardon, we really don't like this sort of surprise. Mario and Luigi will miss their turntable until it's mended."

Narrator: "That evening, GC Mr. Conductor was hauled gently to safety."

GC Mr. Conductor: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "He said to Mayor West."

GC Mr. Conductor: "I should've listen to Spike's advice. I don't feel good gracious or whatever it is. I just feel silly."

Mayor Adam West: "Well GC Mr. Conductor,"

Narrator: "Replied Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "Now you know the damage goombas can do."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Yes I do, sir. I look like a load of scrap iron."

Mayor Adam West: "Oh, I don't think so."

Narrator: "Laughed Mayor West."

Mayor Adam West: "But you do need to go to the Hospital to be healed."

Narrator: "The other TV Characters now felt sorry for GC Mr. Conductor."

Spike: "The route won't be the same without you."

Narrator: "Whistled Spike."

Spike: "Come back soon."

Narrator: "A few days later, GC Mr. Conductor did come back. His coat gleemed brighter than ever. He was a wiser conductor too and never made a mistake about goombas again."

Fuzzy Lumpkins

Narrator: "It was a special holiday in TV Land. Ten Cents the Tug was working harder than ever before.

All the TV Characters were busy too.

Spike was waiting for his next journey. Near him stood a pink creature, but he didn't look friendly like Ten Cents. The creature growled as he gazed at the happy passengers."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "Stupid nonsense."

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "I wouldn't have brought them if I'd known. I'd have had a breakdown or something."

Spike: "I'm glad you didn't."

Narrator: "Smiled Spike."

Spike: "You'd have spoiled their fun."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "Bah! Enjoyment is all you TV Characters live for. One day, TV Land will be ripped up!"

Narrator: "Spike felt shocked at such an idea."

Spike: "We have a friend called Ten Cents, and he's a tug, but he likes TV Land. Sometimes he teases us about it, but he'd never want to see it ripped up."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "Heh!"

Narrator: "Growled the creature."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "I know Ten Cents. He's too small in size to be of any use."

Narrator: "Spike took no notice."

Spike: "That creature is silly."

Narrator: "He thought, as he steamed away.

At the junction, Spike told GC Mr. Conductor all about him."

GC Mr. Conductor: "I call him Fuzz Lumpkins!"

Narrator: "Chuckled GC Mr. Conductor, and then he puffed happily away.

But that afternoon, when the two TV Characters met again, GC Mr. Conductor was no longer laughing."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Fuzzy Lumpkins' friend has come."

Narrator: "He said."

GC Mr. Conductor: "He's rude, too! He's taking Fuzzy's passengers home, and leaving Fuzzy free to steal ours."

Spike: "But he can't!"

Narrator: "Objected Spike."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Fuzzy says he can get them to the big station before us."

Spike: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "It's much farther by road."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Yeah,"

Narrator: "Continued GC Mr. Conductor."

GC Mr. Conductor: "But Fuzzy says he knows a shortcut!"

Narrator: "That evening, the TV Characters were preparing for the homeward rush."

Spike: "Where are the passengers?"

Narrator: "They wondered."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Look!"

Narrator: "Shrilled GC Mr. Conductor."

GC Mr. Conductor: "Look at Fuzzy! He's a mean, scarlet deciever!"

Narrator: "Fuzzy Lumpkins was wearing a large sign saying 'TV Land Creature'."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "Yeah, boo, snubs!"

Narrator: "He jeered, as he roared away."

Spike: "Come on,"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike to his flowers,"

Spike: "Let's see what he's up to!"

Narrator: "Spike wanted to get back at Fuzzy, but he wasn't sure how.

Then, in the distance, Spike saw a man waving a red flag. That meant 'Danger'.

The line here crosses a narrow road, and there was Fuzzy Lumpkins, wedged firmly under the bridge."

Spike: "So this was his shortcut."

Narrator: "Chuckled Spike."

Passengers: "He tricked us!"

Narrator: "Shouted Fuzzy's passengers."

Passengers: "He said he was a TV Land Creature, but he wouldn't accept our return tickets! He wanted us to think TV Land was no good!"

Narrator: "Spike's crew examined the bridge."

Spike's Driver: "It's risky, but we must help the passengers."

Spike: "Passengers are urgent."

Narrator: "Agreed Spike. Spike slowly and carefully set off across the bridge. Fuzzy wailed as he felt the bridge quiver."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "Oh, oh! Stop!"

Narrator: "He shouted."

Fuzzy Lumpkins: "It might fall on me!"

Spike: "That would serve you right for telling lies."

Narrator: "Said Spike, but the bridge didn't collapse.

Spike made good time, and all the passengers caught their rides.

The bridge is now mended, but not unfortunately, Fuzzy Lumpkins and his ways. He never learned sense. He's a henhouse now, and his lies can do no harm. The hens never listen to them anyway."


Narrator: "One morning, Tex and Rex were busy at the quarry, pushing and pulling goombas into their proper places. The twins are cheeky and love playing tricks, but they were growing restless."

Rex: "Listen, Tex."

Narrator: "Said Rex."

Rex: "Can you hear something?"

Tex: "What sort of something?"

Narrator: "Asked Tex."

Rex: "Something different."

Narrator: "Replied Rex."

Tex: "I can't hear anything different."

Narrator: "Said Tex."

Rex: "Exactly."

Narrator: "Huffed Rex."

Rex: "Everything is the same, sounds the same, looks the same. What we need is a surprise."

Tex: "Surprise what?"

Narrator: "Asked Tex. Before Rex could answer, the quarry manager arrived."

Quarry Manager: "I have just received a message from Mayor Adam West. He wants you to go to the station at the harbor."

Tex: "I wonder what we've done wrong this time."

Narrator: "Said Tex anxiously."

Rex: "It must be you."

Narrator: "Replied Rex."

Tex: "Why me?"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Tex."

Tex: "I've not done anything."

Narrator: "Mayor West was waiting for them."

Mayor Adam West: "Edd is taking the children on a special trip today. I want you to go to the station and look after goombas there."

Tex and Rex: "We'll do our best, sir."

Narrator: "Said the twins.

Garfield spoke severely to them."

Garfield: "You must behave here. You're on the main road now."

Rex: "Actually, Garfield."

Narrator: "Giggled Rex."

Rex: "When we saw you, we thought this was the scrapyard."

Narrator: "Garfield was cross."

Garfield: "Just make sure that my flowers are ready for my evening run."

Narrator: "And he fumed away."

Tex and Rex: "This is easy."

Narrator: "They said to each other."

Tex and Rex: "We know all about goombas."

Narrator: "But I'm afraid they didn't."

Goombas: "No need for that."

Narrator: "Shouted the goombas, as the twins pushed them into place."

Goombas: "We'll show you around. We want to help."

Tex and Rex: "Thank you very much."

Narrator: "Said Tex and Rex. The goombas giggled and began their tricks.

Evening came. The yard was in a dreadful muddle. The twins had let the goombas tell them were to put things.

Garfield and the passengers waited impatiently outside the station while Tex and Rex tried to sort things out.

But by the time Garfield was ready to leave, it was very late, indeed.

Next day, the twins were working in the quarry again."

(Rocks start falling)

Tex: "That's a strange noise."

Narrator: "Gasped Tex."

Tex: "I've never heard a noise like that before."

Tex's Driver: "I have."

Narrator: "Whispered his driver nervously."

Tex's Driver: "It sounds like a rock slide to me."

Narrator: "Then came the alarm."

Quarry Managr: "Danger! Clear the quarry!"

Narrator: "Shouted the quarry manager. Workmen scrambled to the goombas."

Tex and Rex: "Thank goodness we're here."

Narrator: "Said the twins.

They were just puffing out of the quarry when,"

Workman: "Help! Wait for me!"

Narrator: "A workman had been left behind. Rex waited as the man climbed quickly on the goombas.

The twins left the quarry just in time.

(Rock slide continues)

Everyone was safe, but rubble lay all around."

Tex: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Said Tex."

Mayor Adam West: "This wasn't our fault. I hope Mayor West will understand."

Narrator: "And indeed, he did. The next day, he arrived with Edd."

Mayor Adam West: "Tex and Rex, you still have a lot to learn about goombas, don't you? But you acted quickly and bravely in an emergency. So three cheers for Tex and Rex, our heroes!"

Mayor Adam West and Workmen: "Hip, hip, hooray, hooray, hooray!"

Tex: "Oh thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Tex."

Tex: "Being called heroes, well, it's, it's,"

Rex: "It's a very nice surprise."

Narrator: "Laughed Rex."

Bart, Schemer and the Fruitful Day

Narrator: "It was a splendid morning in TV Land.

Schemer was feeling very pleased with himself. His clothes gleamed in the sunshine as he sped along the road. He reached the junction just as Bart puffed in with some goombas. Schemer was surprised to see him.

Schemer: "What are you doing here, Bart? You should be at the next station by now. You're late."

Bart: "I know."

Narrator: "Sighed Bart."

Bart: "These goombas have been troublesome all morning."

Schemer: "That's no excuse, Bart."

Narrator: "Snorted Schemer."

Schemer: "Nothing should stop us. Mayor Adam West relies on us to be on time. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'll be on my way."

Narrator: "And Schemer puffed importantly away."

Bart: "Bossy head!"

Narrator: "Muttered Bart.

Schemer arrived at the harbour. It was market day. The harbour yard was filled with the sweet smell of fruit from faraway lands. The fruit was delivered in big ships. Schemer watched the strawberries, oranges, melons, and bananas were carefully loaded into his goombas. Then he set off to the station on the main road.

On the way, he met RS Mr. Conductor."

Schemer: "Really reliable, that's me!"

Narrator: "Panted Schemer proudly."

Schemer: "Pity the same can't be said for Bart. Peep, peep! Goodbye!"

Patty and Selma: "What was that about?"

Narrator: "Gasped Patty and Selma."

RS Mr. Conductor: "That was trouble. Trouble for Schemer. Just wait and see."

Narrator: "Bart was back in the yard, and busy arranging things. He had the goombas in good order, and was making up for lost time.

But the stationmaster had bad news.

Bart's Driver: "What's happened?"

Narrator: "Asked Bart's Driver."

Stationmaster: "Schemer's feet have jammed. We need Bart's help right away."

Narrator: "Bart quickly set off to the rescue.

He found Schemer stuck on the road, and looking glum. Bart couldn't help laughing."

Bart: "Got yourself in a jam, eh, Schemer? What you might call a sticky situation?"

Schemer: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "Said Schemer."

Schemer: "It's not funny having jammed feet."

Bart: "And not very reliable, either."

Narrator: "Teased Bart."

Bart: "I am surprised you let it happen, Schemer. Nothing should stop us TV Characters."

Bart's Driver: "That's enough, Bart."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Bart's Driver: "Can you push these goombas?"

Bart: "Of course I can."

Narrator: "Grunted Bart."

Bart: "There is no time to lose. Schemer's done too much of that already."

Narrator: "Schemer angrily hissed steam as Bart was coupled to the goombas."

Bart: "Off we go!"

Narrator: "Said Bart."

Bart: "I'll have to go fast to get there in time. These big TV Characters are so unreliable."

Bart's Driver: "Be careful, Bart."

Narrator: "Called his driver, but Bart was in a hurry.

He didn't see that the sign had failed, and that he had been diverted into a siding.

Bart's Driver: "Look out, Bart!"

Narrator: "Shouted his driver, and applied the brakes, but it was too late!


The driver and fireman had jumped clear, but squashed fruit squirted all over Bart.

Mayor Adam West arrived."

Mayor Adam West: "Bart, you are not to blame for the sign failure, but I do not run a jam factory!"

Bart: "Yes sir, no sir!"

Narrator: "And Bart squelched sadly away.

That night, the house was silent. Schemer and Bart felt very sorry for themselves. At last, RS Mr. Conductor spoke."

RS Mr. Conductor: "You know,"

Narrator: "He said to no one in particular,"

RS Mr. Conductor: "There's more than one way to get jammed. We all learned that today."

Narrator: "Still, there was silence."

RS Mr. Conductor: "What's more."

Narrator: "Continued RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "We also learned that sometimes when TV Characters help each other out of a..'jam', things can still go wrong.

Narrator: "'So?', said a voice."

RS Mr. Conductor: "So."

Narrator: "Finished RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: That means we learned a lot today. And there for..."

Narrator: "Then came a chorus."

Other TV Characters: "We're really useful TV Characters after all!"

RS Mr. Conductor and Bart's Christmas Adventure/RS Mr. Conductor and Bart's Mountain Adventure

Narrator: "If someday you should see RS Mr. Conductor puffing happily along the path, he may be on his way to a village nestled deep in the heart of TV Land.

One December morning, RS Mr. Conductor called to all his friends."

RS Mr. Conductor: "It's nearly Christmas, and I'll bring you lots of letters and parcels."

Narrator: "But a week later, the storms came.

TV Land was covered in thick snow. The TV characters found work difficult. Some had to help clear snow from the roads, and workmen hacked away at the frozen banks of ice.

RS Mr. Conductor and Bart were collecting important post for Christmas."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Driver says there's lots of post for the village."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I'll need an extra goomba for it all."

Narrator: "Bart was feeling left out."

Bart: "It's not fair. You're not leaving any post for me."

Narrator: "But Bart's chance had come."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "There's been a change of plans."

Narrator: "Said RS Mr. Conductor's driver."

RS Mr. Conductor's Driver: "Mayor Adam West needs us at the big station. Bart, you are to take RS Mr. Conductor's load to the village."

Narrator: "Bart was delighted, but RS Mr. Conductor was sad."

RS Mr. Conductor: "I won't be able to say Happy Christmas to all my friends."

Bart: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Said Bart kindly."

Bart: "I'll do it for you."

RS Mr. Conductor: "It's not the same."

Narrator: "Sighed RS Mr. Conductor.

Bart was making good time on his way to the village when suddenly,"

Bart's Driver: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Called his driver. There ahead was a fogman by the path. He was holding a red light."

Fogman: "The village is cut off by snow."

Narrator: "He shouted."

Fogman: "We need shovels, workmen and a helicopter. Leave your goombas in the siding, and go back quickly."

Narrator: "Bart was soon hurrying to Budgie's airfield."

Bart: "Wake up, lazywings! The mountain villagers need your help. They're stranded."

Budgie: "Whizzo!"

Narrator: "Replied Budgie."

Budgie: "I like an emergency to keep me warm."

Narrator: "And he buzzed away."

Bart: "Now."

Narrator: "Sighed Bart."

Bart: "What's next?"

Narrator: "Suddenly, there was RS Mr. Conductor with Sccoby Doo and the works trailer."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Come on, Bart."

Narrator: "Whistled RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Follow me."

Narrator: "The two TV characters battled their way through the snow.

At last, they reached the village. Budgie was already there busily dropping food for people and animals.

Scooby Doo quickly got to work."

Scooby Doo: "Lovely stuff!"

Narrator: "He said, as he pushed the snow aside."

Villagers: "Well done, Bart! Well done, Mr. Conductor!"

Narrator: "Cheered the villagers."

Villagers: "You're the best Santa Claus this village has ever had!"

Bart: "What's a Santa Claus?"

Narrator: "Asked Bart."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Santa Claus is someone who drops presents down chimneys at Christmas time."

Narrator: "Bart looked at his head."

Bart: "I wonder if,"

RS Mr. Conductor: "No!"

Narrator: "Laughed RS Mr. Conductor."

RS Mr. Conductor: "Chimneys, Bart, not heads! Which reminds me, your post is still back at the siding, isn't it?"

Narrator: "Bart hurried back to fetch it.

Just then, Grandpa Dave arrived with Lanolin."

Grandpa Dave: "We've brought lots of hot drinks and food for the villagers."

Narrator: "He whistled.

That night, all the TV characters went back to the house, except Grandpa Dave. The villagers had made a plan to thank the TV characters. They gave Lanolin paint pots and parcels, then they set off through the moonlit countryside.

All the TV characters were fast asleep in the house as Grandpa Dave ran silently into the yard. He had no idea what the villagers were going to do, but he knew it was going to be a big surprise.

When the TV characters woke the next morning, they could not believe their eyes. The house had been repainted and decorated. Parcels lay everywhere. The TV characters cheered in delight, and everyone agreed that it was a really happy Christmas."
