Narrator: "Sonic the Hedgehog had been working in the coal yards all day. The little blue hedgehog was covered in coal dust."

Sonic's Driver: "We can't clean you up tonight, Sonic."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Sonic's Driver: "There's a problem with the hose pipe."

Sonic: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Sonic."

Sonic: "A bath would make me feel much better. The others are sure to say I look silly."

Narrator: "But the TV characters were too busy arguing to notice Sonic. Rabbit was talking loudest of all."

Rabbit: "I deserve a new coat of fur. Noddy says I'm the pride of TV Land, and..."

Wallace: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Huffed Wallace."

Wallace: "We're all the pride of TV Land!"

Tails: "It's been like this all day."

Narrator: "Confided Tails to Sonic."

Tails: "Rabbit's getting a new coat of fur and won't stop boasting about it."

Sonic: "Why Rabbit? I'm the one who needs a new coat. Look at me!"

Rabbit: "I'd rather not."

Narrator: "Retorted Rabbit."

Rabbit: "You're not a pleasant sight, and wouldn't understand the needs of a really important character."

Narrator: "Sonic was fuming!

Next morning, as Rabbit was being refurred, Wallace had an accident!"


Rabbit: "If you can't push goombas properly, Wallace, why not talk to a tree instead? You know how much you like the forest."

Wallace: "As a matter of fact, bossy bill, Noddy is inspecting TV Land for trees that are too close to the path. He's worried they might cause trouble."

Rabbit: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Laughed Rabbit."

Rabbit: "If I came upon a tree, I'd just push it aside!"

Wallace: "Really?"

Narrator: "Replied Wallace.

Soon Rabbit was showing off his fur."

Rabbit: "Make way for an important character!"

Tails: "You wouldn't feel important if one of these trees crashed on you; you'd feel hurt!"

Narrator: "Reproached Tails."

Rabbit: "Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!"

Scooby-Doo: "You should be careful, Rabbit, trees can be just as powerful as characters."

Narrator: "Advised Scooby."

Rabbit: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Rabbit."

Rabbit: "Now, excuse me, Noddy needs me to pull the express."

Narrator: "And he huffed away.

But Rabbit was wrong."

Noddy: "You must go to the harbor and collect some important goods, Rabbit. They're heavy, so be careful."

Narrator: "Said Noddy."

Rabbit: "But sir, I've just been refurred. Can't Sonic or Arthur do it? They're dirty and like working with goombas."

Noddy: "Really useful TV characters don't argue!"

Narrator:: "So Rabbit didn't.

By the time he arrived at the harbor, the weather had changed for the worst."

Goomba: "Your fur's nice, Rabbit, pity about your face though."

Narrator: "Said a goomba."

(Goombas laugh)

Narrator: "Rabbit ignored them and set off.

Soon, they came to a hill, and his driber knew that they were in for a difficult time. An old tree, close to the path, was being blown by the strong winds, and rain had weakened the slope. All of a sudden, the tree moved!"

Rabbit: "Ooh, help!"

Narrator: "Cried Rabbit."

Rabbit: "Go away!"

Narrator: "But of course, the tree couldn't. Rabbit tried to reverse away from the tree, but his goombas were too heavy."

(Sonic whistles)

Narrator: "Then, he heard a whistle."

Rabbit's Driver: "It's Sonic!"

Narrator: "Called his driver.

Rabbit felt embarrassed and worried that Sonic would laugh at him, but Sonic didn't. He knew that this was no time for teasing."

Sonic: "I'm ready!"

Narrator: "Whistled Sonic."

Rabbit: "So am I."

Narrator: "Rabbit Replied."

Rabbit: "As ready as I'll ever be."

(The tree crashes to the ground)

Narrator: "They were just in time.

Later, Rabbit spoke to Sonic."

Rabbit: "Tails and Scooby were right to warn me."

Narrator: "He said."

Rabbit: "Thank you for rescuing me, Sonic."

Sonic: "Oh, that's all right. We TV characters must pull together, whatever the weather."

Narrator: "Just then, Mario bustled in."

Mario: "Noddy thinks you're both brave TV characters. Sonic, you're going to have a new coat of fur, and Rabbit, Noddy says that tomorrow, you'll pull the special express!"

Narrator: "Everyone was very happy."
