Narrator: "It was a busy time in Ponyville. The Town Inspector was coming.

The signals were checked.

Platforms were scrubbed.

Everyone wanted the town to look its best.

At last, the big day was here."

Hoity Toity: "The Town Inspector arrives today."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity said."

Pipsqueak: "What's a Town In-spectacles?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak asked."

Big Macintosh: "Town Inspector!"

Narrator: "Big Macintosh huffed."

Spike: "He comes to look at the town every year."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "He checks that everything is spic and span."

Hoity Toity: "And this year, he is to give a special prize to the best animal."

Narrator: "Added Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "So I want you all to look your best."

Spike: "A special prize!"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Pipsqueak: "I wonder if we could win."

Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak."

Big Macintosh: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Big Mac snorted."

Big Macintosh: "He's bound to give it to an express horse."

Rarity: "Or one with a big horn."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I think he'll give it to a brown donkey."

Narrator: "Said Cranky proudly."

Spike: "Don't listen to them."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Spike: "A really useful animal can look as grand as any animal."

Narrator: "That afternoon, Spike and Pipsqueak arrived at the quarry. But as the stone was loaded onto the wagons, a big cloud of stone dust whooshed down and landed right on top of Spike."

Spike: "Yuck!"

Narrator: "Coughed Spike."

Pipsqueak: "Now you'll never win first prize."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak moaned."

Spike: "Don't worry, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Spike puffed."

Spike: "All I need is a good bath."

Narrator: "So Spike raced off.

But when he arrived at the spa, Rarity was already there, covered in soapsuds."

Spike: "Hurry up! I need to get clean for the inspection."

Rarity: "There's no need for you to get clean."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "I'm going to be the grandest animal there."

Spike: "I'll still win first prize!"

Narrator: "Spike huffed. And he steamed off to help Pipsqueak.

Spike and Pipsqueak puffed across the countryside.

But when Spike and Pipsqueak arrived at Ponyville Docks, they saw Hoity Toity. He was with the Town Inspector."

Spike: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Spike: "The Town Inspector! But I'm still dirty!"

Narrator: "So Spike raced back to the spa.

When Spike got to the spa, Cranky was already there."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm going to be the shiniest at the inspection!"

Narrator: "Cranky sniffed."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "There's no point in you even being there."

Narrator: "This made Spike cross. He wanted to win first prize more than ever, but Cranky's brown fur did look very shiny."

Spike: "I hope my purple skin can look as shiny as Cranky's."

Narrator: "Spike puffed to himself. And he hurried back to the docks.

Pipsqueak and Spike shunted the quarry wagons into place. When they had finished, Pipsqueak was dirty, and Spike was dirtier than ever. So they raced to the spa as fast as they could.

This time, Big Macintosh was there."

Big Macintosh: "All done!"

Narrator: "Big Mac puffed proudly. Spike thought Big Mac looked splendid. Then Cranky and Rarity pulled into the spa. They looked splendid, too. Rarity's horn looked shinier than ever, and Cranky's brown fur sparkled in the sun. Now Spike was worried."

Spike: "There's no point in going to the inspection."

Narrator: "Spike puffed sadly."

Pipsqueak: "Of course we can win!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "We just need a good clean."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak and Spike were covered in soapsuds. They were scoured and scrubbed, and brushed and buffed. Pipsqueak loved being washed, but now Spike was sad. He thought he would never look as grand as the other animals.

Cranky, Rarity and Big Mac were waiting for the Town Inspector."

Big Macintosh: "The sunlight here makes my mane sparkle!"

Narrator: "Big Mac puffed proudly."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It makes my brown fur look shinier than ever!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "And my horn glimmer!"

Narrator: "Rarity added. The animals tried to find the sunniest spot in the coal yard. So Cranky backed up. Suddenly, he bumped into the wagon. The wagon rolled into a lever, then there was a whooshing sound."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "Cranky puffed. Coal poured out everywhere! It poured onto the path, and all over Big Mac, Cranky and Rarity. They weren't gleaming and shiny anymore.

Hoity Toity and the Town Inspector arrived."

The Town Inspector: "These animals are filthy!"

Narrator: "The Town Inspector said crossly."

The Town Inspector: "I've never seen so much coal dust!"

Narrator: "Just then, Big Mac blew to clear his ears; coal dust shot into the air. It covered Hoity Toity and the Town Inspector."

Big Macintosh: "Sorry." (coughs)

Narrator: "Coughed Big Mac. At last, Spike and Pipsqueak arrived.

When the Town Inspector saw Spike and Pipsqueak, he was delighted."

The Town Inspector: "You two are just what animals should look like!"

Narrator: "He said.

Spike and Pipsqueak won first prize. The Town Inspector gave them each a special rosette. Spike and Pipsqueak beamed with pride."

Spike: "I'm glad you made me come to the inspection."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Pipsqueak: "It's just like you said."

Narrator: "Puffed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "A really useful animal can look as grand as any animal!"
