Narrator: "It was a beautiful day in Ponyville. It was Princess Celestia's birthday. She was having a special party. There were cakes, and balloons, and even a merry-go-round, but most exciting of all was the brass band. It was coming from Canterlot to play at the party.

Hoity Toity came to Golden Oak Library."

Hoity Toity: "Spike, you are to collect the brass band."

Spike: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Spike. Cranky and Big Macintosh were upset. They wanted to collect the brass band themselves.

Spike puffed happily across the town, and into the train station. The brass band gathered round Spike, and he raced away. But Spike was so excited, he pulled away too soon. The tuba player was left behind.

Spike walked to the park, and the brass band assembled on the grass. Suddenly, the bandleader cried out."

Bandleader: "Where's the tuba player?"

Narrator: "He wailed."

Bandleader: "We cannot play without him!"

Narrator: "No one knew where the tuba player was."

Spike: "I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Gasped Spike."

Spike: "I must have left him behind."

Narrator: "Spike raced back to the train station, but the tuba player wasn't at the train station. He was waiting for Angel the Rabbit. Angel pulled up beside the tuba player."

Tuba Player: "Can you take me to the party?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Angel: "I'll take you as far as I can."

Narrator: "Said Angel.

Spike arrived at the train station, and couldn't see the tuba player anywhere."

Spike: "The tuba player is lost."

Narrator: "Moaned Spike."

Spike: "And it's all my fault!"

Narrator: "Spike raced from building to building."

Spike: "Must find him, must find him."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Spike: "Where could he be?"

Narrator: "Angel had dropped the tuba player off."

Angel: "Bye-bye!"

Narrator: "He called cheerfully."

Tuba Player: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said the tuba player, and he waited for another ride. He didn't have to wait long. Trixie the Blue Unicorn walked up."

Trixie: "I can take you as far as the flour mill."

Narrator: "She boomed."

Tuba Player: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said the tuba player. He climbed onto Trixie's back, and he practiced his tuba as they chuffed down the lane.

Spike puffed faster and faster. Wherever was the tuba player? Spike flew right across the level crossing. He didn't see Trixie waiting there or the tuba player on her back. And he didn't hear the tuba playing."

Spike: "Where could the tuba player be?"

Narrator: "Spike moaned.

Trixie took the tuba player all the way to the mill."

Trixie: "There you are, young man."

Narrator: "She puffed."

Trixie: Gummy will take you from here."

Narrator: "The tuba player thanked Trixie and walked up to Gummy. Gummy chugged slowly down the lane.

Spike kept on looking, but the town was very big, and the tuba player was very small.

Spike looked behind changelings, and called towards buffaloes. He raced along the main path, shouting all the way, but it didn't help. Where was the tuba player?

Spike raced into the yard. Pipsqueak was coming the other way."

Spike: "Whoa!"

Narrator: "Spike bumped straight into Pipsqueak, and the bunting flew up into the air. Pipsqueak's wagons came off the path, and so did Spike."

Pipsqueak: "You've split my bunting!"

Narrator: "Moaned Pipsqueak."

Spike: "I'll never find the tuba player now."

Narrator: "Groaned Spike.

Caramel arrived to put Spike back on the path."

Caramel: "How did you get into this mess?"

Narrator: "He boomed."

Spike: "I was looking for the tuba player."

Narrator: "Moaned Spike."

Caramel: "Look and listen."

Narrator: "Caramel said thoughtfully."

Caramel: "If he's a tuba player, he might be playing his tuba."

Narrator: "So Spike took his time, and he listened very carefully. Then he heard it; the sound of a tuba playing in the distance.

Gummy was chugging happily down the lane. He was enjoying the tuba player's music. Spike pulled up. He was pleased to see the tuba player."

Spike: "I've been looking for you everywhere."

Narrator: "He puffed. With the tuba player safely with him, Spike hurried off to the park as fast as he could.

Spike arrived at the party just in time.

The band played beautifully. Princess Celestia was very happy. It was the best birthday party ever."
