Narrator: "All the animals in Ponyville look forward to harvest festival time. But most of all, they look forward to Hoity Toity's harvest firework display.

Hoity Toity came to see Spike and Cranky."

Hoity Toity: "Cranky, you are to collect the fireworks from the depot."

Narrator: "Cranky was overjoyed. Spike wasn't happy at all."

Spike: "But I wanted to collect the fireworks."

Narrator: "Spike pouted."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hoity Toity chose me because I'm as brown as a rocket, and twice as grand."

Narrator: "Cranky walked proudly across the countryside."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Brightest and best, brightest and best!"

Narrator: "He hummed happily to himself. He was having a wonderful day. Spike was still upset when he arrived at the yards."

Spike: "Bother Cranky!"

Narrator: "He grouched. And he biffed the changelings crossly around the yard.

When Cranky arrived at the depot, he was very excited. The wagons were all ready for him, filled safely to the top with fireworks. Cranky was hooked up with the precious cargo, and he walked away.

Spike arranged the last changeling crossly into place. The troublesome changelings were glad that job is finished."

Changelings: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Cranky happily walked along. He was thinking about the fireworks. He was imagining all the sparkles flash and the shooting stars when suddenly, there was a loud noise. And Cranky ground to a halt."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "I will have to go and call for help."

Narrator: "Said his driver.

Spike puffed back into the town hall as Big Macintosh was letting off his passengers. Children and grown-ups from all over Equestria had come to see the fireworks. Seeing the children cheered Spike up. But Hoity Toity looked concerned."

Hoity Toity: "Cranky has gotten hurt."

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "You must collect him, Spike, and bring him back, or the fireworks display will be cancelled."

Spike: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "Then all the children will be sad."

Narrator: "And he set off to collect Cranky.

Spike puffed across the countryside. Even with his flashlight on, Spike knew he had to be very careful.

Spike found Cranky injured on the path."

Spike: "Hello, busted body."

Narrator: "Teased Spike."

Spike: "You don't look very useful now."

Narrator: "Cranky was upset. But when Spike got behind Cranky, he couldn't see ahead."

Spike: "You will have to look out for me."

Narrator: "Said Spike. Cranky was cross."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You said I wasn't useful."

Narrator: "He pouted."

Spike: "But if the fireworks don't get to the town hall,"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Spike: "The display will be cancelled."

Narrator: "Cranky didn't want the children to be sad. So he agreed to look out for Spike and they set off together.

When the path were straight and clear, Cranky called out,"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Go faster, Spike!"

Narrator: "And Spike did. They were soon working happily together and making good time.

Hoity Toity checked his watch. There was still no sign of Spike or Cranky."

Hoity Toity: "It's very late."

Narrator: "He thought."

Hoity Toity: "It's almost the children's bedtime."

Narrator: "Even Big Mac was worried."

Hoity Toity: "I'll have to cancel the display."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity. So the disappointed children started to board the buffaloes.

At last, they could see the signal lights. The signal had turned red. Spike and Cranky stopped."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Why would the signal be red?"

Narrator: "Puzzled Cranky."

Spike: "Maybe a passenger line is coming through."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Big Mac must be taking the children back."

Narrator: "Cried Cranky. Spike and Cranky were very upset."

Spike and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We're here!"

Narrator: "They cried. And whistled as loudly as they could, but no one could hear them.

The children were all on board. Big Mac was ready to depart.

Then, Spike had a bright idea."

Spike: "Send up a rocket."

Narrator: "He told his driver. So his driver carefully lit a rocket. He stood well back as it whooshed into the sky. The rocket bursts into stars."

Hoity Toity: "A sparkling dragon!"

Narrator: "Cried Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "It must be Spike and Cranky! Stop, Big Mac!"

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "The firework display is back on!"

Narrator: "The junction signal turned to green, and Spike and Cranky were soon on their way.

Cranky and Spike were soon at the town hall. The children cheered."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Good work, Spike!"

Narrator: "Cried Cranky happily."

Spike: "And good work, Cranky."

Narrator: "Agreed Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Good work, both of you."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity.

That night, Spike and Cranky watched the fireworks together."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I think we are both useful animals."

Narrator: "Said Cranky proudly."

Spike: "But we are most useful when we work together."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike."
