Narrator: "Spike, Pipsqueak and Cranky were looking at the early morning sky."

Spike: "Everyone's so much happier when springtime comes."

Narrator: "Said Spike happily."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Everyone except Hoity Toity."

Narrator: "Grumbled Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "He seems to be working us harder that ever. I'm tire of these coastal runs."

Pipsqueak: "He just wants everything to be ready for the holidays."

Narrator: "Replied Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Anyway, salty air makes me all cheerful in my body."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It's the countryside that really gets me fired up, it's the only place to be!"

Narrator: "And he puffed away to collect his fuel drums from the docks.

Spike and Pipsqueak had to take some changelings to the scrap yards.

In a siding, they saw an old donkey. She looked very sad."

Pipsqueak: "What are you doing here?"

Matilda: "My name is Matilda, but they told me I wasn't useful anymore. Now I only have mice for company."

Spike: "Well, you may be dusty, but you look in perfect shape."

Narrator: "The yard manager appeared."

Yard Manager: "Come along, I have changelings for you to take away."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Excuse me,"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak's Driver,"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Can you tell us about this donkey?"

Yard Manager: "Matilda; she's been here for years. She'll be broken up when we find the time."

Narrator: "The animals were most dismayed."

Spike: "We'll try and help you."

Narrator: "Said Spike. But he didn't know how.

Meanwhile, Cranky was enjoying himself."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "This is the life!"

Narrator: "He chortled, but he was heading for trouble. One of the fuel drums was leaking, and suddenly, it caught fire."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, help!"

Narrator: "Cried Cranky.

They reached a siding, and his driver gave the alarm."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "It's fuel, and it's dangerous."

Narrator: "As Spike and Pipsqueak approached the junction, they saw the smoke, and a guard waving a red flag."

Guard: "Sparks from Cranky have set the drums ablaze."

Narrator: "He called."

Guard: "The fire's under control, but it's quite a mess."

Pipsqueak: "You said the countryside run got you all 'fired up', Cranky."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "But I didn't think you meant it in this way."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It was the stupid drums' fault, not mine."

Fireman: "It's safe to proceed now."

Narrator: "Called a fireman.

Spike and Pipsqueak now felt sorry for Cranky.

It wasn't long before they reached the station.

Later, as they were having a long drink, they suddenly heard a commotion."

Spike: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Spike asked."

Spike's Driver: "It's another fire at the Workmen's hut."

Narrator: "Replied Spike's driver."

Spike's Driver: "We better see what we can do."

Narrator: "The fire engines had a big problem."

Fireman: "We are completely out of water!"

Narrator: "Cried a fireman."

Fireman: "We can't use sea water cause it clogs our works. We'll just have to let that building burn."

Narrator: "Then Spike had an idea."

Spike: "Why don't you use the water in our bodies? We've just refilled them."

Narrator: "The firemen wasted no time."

Spike and Pipsqueak's Drivers: "You're very clever animals."

Narrator: "Chuckled their drivers.

Soon, the fire was out, but the hut where the workmen lived was destroyed."

Foreman: "The men can't sleep on the beach."

Narrator: "Said the foreman."

Pipsqueak: "What about Matilda? She would be perfect for the workmen."

Spike: "Comfy, too."

Narrator: "Added Spike."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "What a good idea, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said his driver.

They phoned Hoity Toity, who agreed."

Hoity Toity: "She'll be spic and span by the time you collect her."

Narrator: "And she was, and very happy too."

Matilda: "I can't thank you enough. I feel splendid."

Narrator: "The animals took her hooves, and she set off for her new home.

Everyone agreed there was nothing old or slow about Matilda, and she will always be really useful indeed."
