Transcript

Gustave Bugs

Narrator: "Spike and Pipsqueak enjoy working in the docks. They like the sea air and the sound of the gulls.

But one day, the friends were feeling hot and bothered. A griffon was causing trouble. His name was Gustave, and this was his first day at the docks."

Gustave: "You're useless little bugs!"

Narrator: "He called from above."

Gustave: "If you put these boxes on the inside lines, then I wouldn't have so far to travel!"

Spike: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "No griffon has ever complained before."

Gustave: "Well, I'm complaining now!"

Narrator: "And Gustave banged his load down on the keyside.

Later, the two animals met Big Macintosh and Cranky, and told them about Gustave."

Big Macintosh: "Griffons are hairy fairy things, they need a lot of attention, like me, in fact."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You should see the situation from Gustave's point of view."

Narrator: "Huffed Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "He's high up in the air, coping with wind, rain, and baking sun, then he looks down and sees you two little animals being annoying! No wonder he calls you 'bugs'."

Narrator: "When Gustave heard that the big animals agreed with him, he grew bossier still."

Gustave: "Come on, come on! Push those boxes closer to me!"

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak was too upset to concentrate, and pushed the boxes too far." (Gustave drops his load on Pipsqueak) "Poor Pipsqueak.

Then, Gustave played a trick on Spike."

Gustave: "Push your boxes onto the outside line! It's easier for me to load up!"

Narrator: "So Spike did.

But Gustave left the loads beside the boxes, not in them."

Gustave: "You must have known I can't reach you there!"

Narrator: "Complained Gustave. This mix-up caused confusion and delay.

Hoity Toity was most upset."

Hoity Toity: "Spike and Pipsqueak, this new griffon has an important job to do. I have heard you have not been helping him today. You will go to your homes and consider how you will improve yourselves tomorrow."

Narrator: "Now, Spike and Pipsqueak were upset too.

That evening, a big storm raged across the land.

Gustave and the animals were trapped at the docks."

Soarin: "We're sure to be safe in this shed."

Narrator: "Said Soarin.

But he was wrong.

The animals had no idea they were about to be put in great danger by an old tramp steamer. It was out of control, and running aground, straight into the sheds!"

Gustave: "AAAAH!" (Falls over)

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, Cranky Doodle Donkey and Soarin: "Help!"

Narrator: "Called the animals from inside the shed."

Gustave: "I can't!"

Narrator: "Called Gustave.

When the storm was over, Hoity Toity rushed to the scene of the destruction."

Hoity Toity: "Spike and Pipsqueak will help you."

Narrator: "He called to Gustave."

Hoity Toity: "And then you can help the animals."

Gustave: "Oh, please, hurry!"

Narrator: "Cried Gustave."

Gustave: "And tell them I'm sorry I was rude to them!"

Hoity Toity: "So it was you!"

Narrator: "Murmured Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "I owe those animals an apology."

Narrator: "Spike and Pipsqueak soon came to the rescue.

And it wasn't too long before Gustave was upright again, and clearing the wreckage.

At last, all the animals were free."

Big Macintosh: "Oh, thank you."

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "What would I have done without you?"

Gustave: "Well, I had to be rescued before I could help you.

But I never thought it be by a couple of bu... bu..."

Narrator: "Gustave was about to say 'bugs', but he quickly corrected himself."

Gustave: "Uh, small animals, thank you. I'll never be rude again. However, you two mites are in my way, so move over!"

Pipsqueak: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "He's back to bugging us!"

Spike: "Don't move! You're still attached to Gustave!"

Narrator: "But it was too late." (Gustave falls over)

"Gustave still looks down on the two little animals, but ever since that stormy night, he never calls them 'bugs' or 'mites', because he knows they might bite back."

Horrid Diamond Dogs

Narrator: "It was a busy time at the docks. All the animals were working hard, pushing and pulling changelings about.

One morning, Pipsqueak was late. Gustave Le Grand was quick to criticize."

Gustave Le Grand: "These ships can't be kept waiting, they have important cargo. If they miss the tides, they will be delayed in the docks. You should look up to ships, and show more respect. You are after all, only little."

Pipsqueak: "We've got too much work."

Narrator: "Huffed Pipsqueak."

Gustave Le Grand: "Then perhaps a diamond dog should do your job."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was shocked.

He told the other animals what Gustave had said."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Stuff and nonsense!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky."

Filthy Rich: "We animals run this town."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Pipsqueak: "What if a diamond dog does arrive?"

Narrator: "I'm afraid it did, along with two more.

Gustave was delighted."

Gustave Le Grand: "Hey you down there! Your job's done now. These diamond dogs are taking over.

One of them wants to talk to you."

Narrator: "The diamond dog was very rude."

Fido: "What's that steaming lump of scrap iron doing here? Be off with you!"

Pipsqueak: "Scrap iron? Steaming scrap iron? Pah!"

Narrator: "A little later, Pipsqueak met Spike and Cranky. Another diamond dog was being rude to them, then he saw Pipsqueak."

Rover: "Oh look, it's a little white goblin on four legs. Ha! You'll be scrapped. Just you wait and see!

Spike: "Well bust my scales, what a horrid diamond dog!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Agreed Cranky.

The next animal to meet a diamond dog was Braeburn."

Fido: "Well, well, well! No wonder this town's a mess. You belong in a museum, not working in a quarry."

Braeburn: "I might look old, but I'm really useful!"

Fido: "Useful? Pah!"

Narrator: "Replied the diamond dog."

Fido: "Just you toodle off!"

Braeburn: "TOODLE?!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Braeburn."

Braeburn's Driver: "Come along Braeburn!"

Narrator: "Interrupted his driver."

Braeburn's Driver: Don't bother arguing with him. We'll go to the flour mill instead."

Narrator: "But when they arrived at the flour mill, Braeburn was shocked to see yet another diamond dog."

Braeburn: "What are you doing here?"

Spot: "We three are doing your work now. You're too slow!"

Narrator: "The foreman spoke to Braeburn's driver."

Foreman: "I'm sorry. Times are changing I'm afraid."

Braeburn's Driver: "Braeburn might be old."

Narrator: "Replied his driver"

Braeburn's Driver: "But he's reliable!

Come on Braeburn, we'll go to the farms. They'll still use us."

Narrator: "Braeburn trundled sadly away.

His roadway ran through a narrow gorge.

But creatures had to tackle a steep and dangerous road.

When Braeburn arrived, he saw the diamond dog from the quarry again.

He was loaded with rocks."

Braeburn: "That diamond dog's in trouble!"

Narrator: "Thought Braeburn.

And he was."

(Fido Crashes)

Narrator: "The driver was thrown clear."

Fido's Driver: "Rotten Roads!"

Narrator: "He mutted. The wrecked diamond dog was taking to the docks.

Pipsqueak looked at the diamond dog."

Pipsqueak: "What's this lump of steaming scrap iron?"

Narrator: "He teased."

Fido: "I'll be back!"

Narrator: "Replied the diamond dog."

Fido: "So you can wipe that silly smile off your body."

Pipsqueak: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak, and kicked dirt at him loudly.

Then Royal Riff the gray earth pony arrived. He was pulling the diamond dog from the flour mill."

Braeburn's Driver: "What happened?"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn's Driver."

Workman: "He was over-loaded with flour."

Narrator: "Came the reply."

Workman: "And he fell down!"

Braeburn: "Not very useful now, are you?"

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Fido and Spot: "GRRRRR!"

Narrator: "Replied the diamond dogs.

Then Cranky whistled excitedly."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "They're bringing in the third diamond dog on a barge. What happened to that one?"

Tow Truck Man: "Stupid diamond dog was walking backwards and fell straight into the sea."

Narrator: "Said the Tow Truck Man.

Later, Spike arrived. He looked at the three diamond dogs, and laughed."

Spike: "Well, well, well! The Brother's Grimm! Smashed, Broken and Sunk!"

Narrator: "The diamond dogs didn't return! And the animals now work even harder to make sure they never will."

A Better View for Big Macintosh

Narrator: "Big Macintosh was feeling grumpy. This was making Cranky Doodle Doneky cross."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Why are you complaining all the time?"

Big Macintosh: "Because I'm a big red horse and I know everything. I shall complain whenever I want. You're just a small donkey with ideas above your station."

Pipsqueak: "I can't see any."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Where are they?"

Big Macintosh: "Any what?"

Pipsqueak: "Ideas above the station. The sky's empty."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Like your head, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Laughed Cranky, but Big Mac was still grumpy."

Big Macintosh: "One day I'll show you just what a big horse could really do."

Pipsqueak: "So what can a big horse really do?"

Big Macintosh: "Not speak to silly little fillies for a start."

Narrator: "Replied Big Mac. Then, he puffed away.

Later that day, Hoity Toity came to see him."

Hoity Toity: "Big Macintosh, you'll be making one stop today with an empty express to test our new station. You can make up time afterwards."

Big Macintosh: "Why can't Filthy Rich do it? He likes idling at stations."

Hoity Toity: "You will do as you are told!"

Narrator: "So Big Mac did.

But he was still unhappy and he grew sick, too."

Big Macintosh: "I just can't get up to speed."

Narrator: "He moaned."

Big Macintosh's Fireman: "It's time for your visit to the works. Your body's clogged."

Narrator: "Said the fireman."

Narrator: "At last they approached the new station. Big Mac was impressed, but his mood soon changed. In front of him was a blank wall and huge buffers."

Big Macintosh: "What a boring view! Important horses like me should have a panoramic view where I could see people and people could see me."

Narrator: "And he kicked at the ground angrily. Big Mac was happy when it was time to leave."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "Now you can really enjoy your run, as long as your body will let you."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Big Macintosh: "Come on, come on! I can go faster than this."

Narrator: "Huffed Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "Sick? Me? Never!"

Narrator: "But Big Mac began to feel more and more feeble, and soon, he came to a complete stop!"

Big Macintosh: "What happened?"

Narrator: "His driver and fireman inspected him."

Big Macintosh's Fireman: "Something's broken inside you Big Mac."

Narrator: "Said his fireman."

Big Macintosh's Fireman: "Now, you really will have to go to the works."

Narrator: "Big Mac was still fuming when Cranky arrived to collect his buffaloes."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Well, well, well. So much for knowing about everything. You got too puffed up in your head, so it serves you right."

Narrator: "When Big Mac returned from the Works a few weeks later, he was still boasting."

Big Macintosh: "I am the finest horse in Equestria, probably the finest in the world."

Hoity Toity: "Come on, Big Mac, we're going to the official opening of the new station."

Narrator: "Then there was trouble, as Big Mac approached the new station, neither the driver or fireman could apply his brakes.

Something had jammed.

The driver reduced steam, but Big Mac was still going too fast."

(CRASH!)

Big Macintosh: Help me! Please!

Hoity Toity: "Well, Big Mac."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "I knew you wanted a panoramic view, but this is not the way to achieve it."

Big Macintosh: "Yes sir, sorry sir!"

Narrator: "When Big Mac was repaired again, he took Hoity Toity to the new station for it's second official opening.

This time, he arrived safely, and everyone clapped and cheered as he pulled in. Hoity Toity spoke to him."

Hoity Toity: "Your panoramic view is here to stay, I trust you will always see through it, from the safety of your own road."

Narrator: "Big Mac heartily agreed."

Princess Celestia's Birthday Party

Narrator: "One summer's day, Spike and Pipsqueak were idling in the station when Angel the rabbit arrived."

Angel: "Have you noticed something?"

Spike: "What sort of something?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Angel: "Hoity Toity. He, well, seems different."

Narrator: "Replied Angel."

Pipsqueak: "I did see him staring at the clouds this morning."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I wonder why."

Narrator: "The reason was simple. It was Princess Celestia's birthday, and Hoity Toity had a new outfit."

Princess Celestia: "It's perfect for my birthday party."

Narrator: "She said."

Princess Celestia: "You'll look splendid, Hoity dear."

Hoity Toity: "And I'll wear my finest hat just for you."

Narrator: "He replied."

Hoity Toity: "Your birthday is a great occasion."

Princess Celestia: "It is. So don't be late."

Hoity Toity: "Don't worry, my dear. I shall be spic-and-span and right on time!"

Narrator: "Later that day, Hoity Toity had changed into his new suit."

Stationmaster: "You look fine, sir."

Narrator: "Said the stationmaster."

Stationmaster: "You'd best be going."

Hoity Toity: "Indeed."

Narrator: "Agreed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "The animals are busy. I'll take the car."

Stationmaster: "Is it reliable?"

Narrator: "Asked the stationmaster."

Hoity Toity: "Certainly."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity.

But is wasn't. As he sped along, he suddenly saw a large hole in the road. He braked hard, but it was too late."

Hoity Toity: "Bother! Now I've got a puncture. If I change my wheel, I am sure to dirty my suit and that would never do."

Narrator: "Just then, he heard Zecora."

Hoity Toity: "I have to attend Princess Celestia's birthday party and I cannot be late. Please give me a lift."

Zecora: "I'll try, sir."

Narrator: "But Zecora didn't like going fast."

Zecora: "I'm hot. My body will overheat."

Narrator: "And it did."

Zecora: "Told you so."

Narrator: "Said Zecora sadly."

Hoity Toity: "Bother, bother."

Narrator: "Then heard a loud whistle. It was Score the pegasus pony. Score was cross when he was Zecora."

Score: "Call yourself a zebra? You're a disgrace to the road. Find yourself a scrapyard."

Narrator: "Zecora spluttered in fury. Score's driver was more polite."

Score's Driver: "Can I be of assistance, sir?"

Hoity Toity: "Only if you can get me to Princess Celestia's birthday party."

Narrator: "Sighed Hoity Toity."

Score's Driver: "We can take you to Spike."

Narrator: "Replied the driver."

Score's Driver: "He just down the road."

Hoity Toity: "Much obliged."

Narrator: "And they rumbled away."

Zecora: "What about me?"

Narrator: "Wailed Zecora."

Hoity Toity: "I'll send for help."

Narrator: "Called Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Stay there."

Zecora: "That's all I can do."

Narrator: "Score was enjoying flying along the lane, but not Hoity Toity. Oil splashed everywhere. Worse was to follow."

Score: "Help!"

Narrator: "Cried Score."

Score: "Something's snapped!"

Narrator: "He veered out of control, and Hoity Toity landed in a muddy ditch close to where Spike was having a drink."

Hoity Toity: "Bother, bother!"

Narrator: "Spike had never seen Hoity Toity in such a mess."

Spike's Driver: "Can I help you, sir?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike's driver."

Hoity Toity: "Yes, please. Get me to the station as fast as your can."

Spike's Driver: "I'm afraid our fireman's been taken ill."

Hoity Toity: "Then I'll be your fireman."

Narrator: "Spike was excited. Hoity Toity had to work hard. Dust and smoke flew everywhere.

At last they reached the station. Hoity Toity looked at the clock."

Hoity Toity: "Just in time."

Narrator: "He gasped. He hurriedly picked up a huge bunch of flowers."

Spike: "Good luck!"

Narrator: "Called Spike.

Princess Celestia was waiting for him. As the clock struck three, there stood Hoity Toity, tired but triumphant. He gave her the flowers."

Princess Celestia: "Well, thank you, my dear. I knew this was my special birthday party, but I didn't know it was fancy dress!"

Narrator: "Everyone laughed, and then the party began."

Cranky & The Trouble With Trees

Narrator: "Spike the Dragon had been working in the coal yards all day. The little purple dragon was covered in coal dust."

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

Narrator: "Said his driver."

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

Spike: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

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

Narrator: "But the animals were too busy arguing to notice Spike. Cranky was talking loudest of all."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I deserve a new coat of fur. Hoity Toity says I'm the pride of Ponyville, and..."

Filthy Rich: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "We're all the pride of Ponyville!"

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

Narrator: "Confided Pipsqueak to Spike."

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

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

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'd rather not."

Narrator: "Retorted Cranky.

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You're not a pleasant sight, and wouldn't understand the needs of a really important donkey."

Narrator: "Spike was fuming!

Next morning, as Cranky was being refured, Filthy Rich had an accident!"

(CRASH!)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "If you can't push changelings properly, Filthy Rich, why not talk to a tree instead? You know how much you like the forest."

Filthy Rich: "As a matter of fact, bossy hooves, Hoity Toity is inspecting Ponyville for trees that are too close to the road. He's worried they might cause trouble."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Laughed Cranky."

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

Filthy Rich: "Really?"

Narrator: "Filthy Rich replied.

Soon Cranky was showing off his fur."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Make way for an important donkey!"

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

Narrator: "Reproached Pipsqueak."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Rubbish! It wouldn't dare!"

Featherweight: "You should be careful, Cranky, trees can be just as powerful as donkeys."

Narrator: "Advised Featherweight."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: Oh please! Now, excuse me, Hoity Toity needs me to pull the express."

Narrator: "And he huffed away.

But Cranky was wrong."

Hoity Toity: "You must go to the yards and collect some important goods, Cranky. They're heavy, so be careful."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "But sir, I've just been refured. Can't Spike or Pipsqueak do it? They're dirty and like working with changelings."

Hoity Toity: "Really useful animals don't argue!"

Narrator: "So Cranky didn't.

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

A Changeling: "Your furs are nice, Cranky, pity about your face though."

Narrator: "Said a changeling.

Cranky ignored them and set off.

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

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ooh, help!"

Narrator: "Cried Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Go away!"

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

(Spike whistles)

"Then, he heard a whistle."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "It's Spike!"

Narrator: "Called his driver.

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

Spike: "I'm ready!"

Narrator: "Whistled Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "As ready as I'll ever be."

Narrator: "They were just in time."

(The tree crashes to the ground)

"Later, Cranky spoke to Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak and Featherweight were right to warn me. Thank you for rescuing me, Spike."

Spike: "Oh, that's all right. We animals must pull together, whatever the weather."

Narrator: "Just then, Shining Armor bustled in."

Shining Armor: "Hoity Toity thinks you're both brave animals. Spike, you're going to have some new scales, and Cranky, Hoity Toity says that tomorrow, you'll pull the special express!"

Narrator: "Everyone was very happy."

Big Macintosh and the Gremlin

Narrator: "Early one morning, Big Macintosh was feeling tired."

Fire Lighter: "I don't know what's wrong."

Narrator: "Sighed the fire lighter."

Fire Lighter: "There must be gremlins about."

Pipsqueak: "What are gremlins?"

Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak."

Spike: "I've heard they're little green men who play tricks."

Narrator: "Replied Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Can we find one?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Gremlins don't exist, they're just an excuse for when things go wrong."

Spike: "If fire lighter says there are gremlins, there are!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky.

Hoity Toity had heard everything."

Hoity Toity: "Silence!"

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "I am expecting a V.I.P., a very important person today. She has heard that that all my animals are really useful. Please prove it."

Spike, Pipsqueak and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, sir!"

Narrator: "They said."

Pipsqueak: "As long as the Gremlins let us."

Hoity Toity: "What Gremlins?"

Pipsqueak: "The one's in Big Mac's head, sir. That's why he's not ready yet."

Hoity Toity: "I'll see about that."

Narrator: "Thundered Hoity Toity, and he did."

Hoity Toity: "Big Mac, I expect you to be on your best behavior today. You are to bring the special buffalo for my special visitor. But no high speeds, please; she won't like that."

Narrator: "Big Mac was proud and pleased.

He was waiting for his special buffalo when Pipsqueak puffed in with some coal."

Pipsqueak: "What's the matter, Big Mac? You're late."

Big Macintosh: "Driver says there's gremlins in the turntable."

Narrator: "Replied Big Mac."

Pipsqueak: "They must be everywhere!"

Narrator: "Squeaked Pipsqueak.

At last, the turntable was mended, and Big Mac puffed away with the special buffalo.

He was soon working hard to make up for lost time.

After he arrived at the station, Hoity Toity became concerned."

Hoity Toity: "Where's Spike?"

Narrator: "He wondered."

Hoity Toity: "He's supposed to be bringing my visitor from the harbor."

Big Macintosh: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Huffed Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "Spike isn't really useful if he's late."

Narrator: "But it wasn't long before Spike arrived."

Spike: "I'm sorry, a cow strayed on the line and we had to wait for the farmer to take her away, but driver says your visitor is here safe and sound."

Hoity Toity: "Indeed she is."

Narrator: "Smiled Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "How nice to see you."

Pipsqueak: "Who is it?"

Narrator: "Whispered Pipsqueak."

Spike: "I don't know,"

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "But Hoity Toity is certainly keen to please her. He's arranged a special party for her."

Pipsqueak: "She's got a dog."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

(Gremlin barks)

Spike's Driver: "Come on, Spike."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Spike's Driver: "You need a drink."

Big Macintosh: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Puffed Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "Spike is just a lazy little dragon. Hoity Toity is expecting me to arrive on time. We're late because of Spike."

Narrator: "Big Mac's driver decided to make up for lost time.

Then there was trouble."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "I think we'd better slow down, this is an old path and could make things very uncomfortable for the V.I.P."

Narrator: "And it did. She was taking a bath, and the water was slopping about all over the place."

Mayor Mare: "Ohhhh!"

Narrator: "She cried.

Big Mac was very relieved to reach his final destination, where Spike was waiting to collect Hoity Toity and his special visitor.

He blew an extra-long whistle. This frightened the visitor's dog so much, that he fled from the station and ran into a field where a bull was grazing.

The bull frightened the little dog even more. He ran back again, onto the platform, and over the bridge.

He didn't stop until he jumped straight onto Spike."

(Gremlin Barks)

Narrator: "But he had a wonderful ride, all the way to the harbor."

Spike's Fireman: "What's the dog's name?"

Narrator: "Asked the fireman."

Mayor Mare: "Well, after today's events, I think I'll rename him 'Gremlin'."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity chuckled."

Hoity Toity: "In that case, I've met one at last. Ha ha ha!"

Spike: "Excuse me, sir, but who is your very important visitor?"

Hoity Toity: "Why, didn't I tell you? This lady is my mother, and she agrees with me, you are indeed, really useful animals, and my mother, of course, is always right."

(Hoity Toity chuckles)

Bye Score!

Narrator: "One day, Score the Grey Pegasus was waiting for Pipsqueak to take him to a new workplace. Score was being rude to Woody and Buzz Lightyear."

Score: "You're just worn-out toys on worn-out roads!"

Woody: "You need clouds for your skies."

Narrator: "Said Woody,"

Woody: "And we're helping you."

Score: "I need to flatten little toys in the scrapyards."

Narrator: "Retorted Score.

Then, Pipsqueak arrived to take Score away. He was still rebelling."

Score: "Roads are no good! Turn them into clouds!"

Narrator: "The toys were pleased to see him go."

Woody and Buzz Lightyear: "Grey pegasus ponies are rubbish! So good riddance!"

Narrator: "They called. Score grumbled all the way to the old town. He was going to turn it into clouds.

When they arrived, Score was rude again."

Score: "Bumpy ride on rotten roads. I'm glad it's over!"

Pipsqueak: "So am I."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Score: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Huffed Score.

Pipsqueak was till fuming when he met Spike."

Spike: "What's up, Pipsqueak?"

Pipsqueak: "It's Score. He makes me feel down."

Spike: "Just ignore him."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike.

Score was now enjoying himself."

Score: "Ripping up roads!"

Narrator: "He chortled."

Score: "What a life!"

(Spike whistles)

Score: "What do you think of this, Spike?"

Narrator: "Spike took no notice. Score felt insulted."

Score: "You're a useless purple puffball!"

Narrator: "Said Score, but Spike didn't hear."

Score: "I'll show him who's boss!"

Narrator: "At last, the workmen reached the level crossing."

Workman: "What shall we do here?"

Score: "Tear it up! Tarmac it!"

Narrator: "Said Score. So they did, but not properly, and Score knew it too.

Later, Spike was traveling home on the same road. He was helping changelings deliver vegetables. The signalman had forgotten to warn his driver about the crossing."

Spike: "That's nice, we don't need to stop."

Narrator: "Said Spike happily."

Spike's Driver: "Yes, we do."

Narrator: "Called his driver. But it was too late."

CRASH!

Narrator: "Next Day, Pipsqueak told Big Mac all about Score."

Big Macintosh: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Snorted Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "You're just a small pony. That's why he's rude to you. He wouldn't dare cause me any trouble!"

Narrator: "Score had been taken to some yards to work.

As he was chuffering about, Soarin arrived with some changelings.

Score was blocking his way, and a changeling was stuck on the main line."

Soarin: "Let me through!"

Narrator: "Demanded Soarin."

Score: "I'm too busy! You'll just have to wait."

Soarin: "There's no time to wait. I must clear my changelings from the main road to let Big Mac through!"

Score: "Pah!"

Narrator: " Said Score."

Score: "Then he'll have to wait too!"

Narrator: "Soarin's Driver went to complain to the Stationmaster, but the Signalman had already switch the points and set the signal to allow Big Macintosh to speed through.

His passengers were singing his praises, and he was making express time."

Big Macintosh: "I'm the greatest! Just watch me fly by!"

Narrator: "He whistled long and loud as he approached the station."

(Big Macintosh whistles)

Narrator: "Suddenly, he saw a changeling on the road ahead."

Big Macintosh: "Get out of my way!"

Narrator: "But the changeling wouldn't move."

CRASH!

Narrator: "Until Big Mac forced it, by accident.

Big Mac was worried that Hoity Toity would be cross. He was, but not with Big Mac."

Hoity Toity: "Who ever caused this disturbance will have me to answer to."

Narrator: "And he did, a few days later."

Spike: "Look who's here!"

Narrator: "Said Spike.

Score had been found out by Hoity Toity and punished. He looked miserable."

Pipsqueak: "Now we'll have some peace at last!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Score: "I want to get flying again, but I've got to wait a whole week till' I do."

Spike: "And then you'll be just as rude as ever. Eh, Score?"

Narrator: "I hope not. Don't you?"

Baa!

Narrator: "In summer, Ponyville gleams in the sun, and every station is filled with flowers.

Pipsqueak had been working at the docks all day and was tired of the smell of fish."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Phew. Come on, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Time to go home."

Pipsqueak: "Please, sir, can I have a shower first?"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Sorry, Pipsqueak. There isn't time. Hoity Toity is waiting for us at the library."

Hoity Toity: "There is to be a festival of flowers."

Narrator: "Announced Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "This sign saying "Best Dressed Station" will be awarded to the winner. Please help with the arrangements."

Narrator: "The animals were excited."

Spike: "My favorite station is Ffarquhar."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Braeburn: "Mine is Maithwaite."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Pipsqueak, what's yours?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was too tired to think properly."

Pipsqueak: "The docks."

Narrator: "He murmured."

Spike: "Ha!"

Narrator: "Sniffed Spike."

Spike: "We can tell."

Narrator: "Braeburn laughed."

Braeburn: "The docks are full of fish, not flowers."

Pipsqueak: "Alright then, Appleloosa."

Braeburn: "That's my home."

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "That's why I like it, especially when you're there and not here saying I'm silly. Good night."

Narrator: "Next morning, Pipsqueak was proud to be sparkling again. His line of changelings were being loaded with vegetables and flowers."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "These are for Maithwaite."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "They'll display them on the platform."

Narrator: "On the way, Pipsqueak saw Owlowiscious."

Pipsqueak: "Why is Owlowiscious flying about?"

Narrator: "He thought."

Pipsqueak: "I haven't time for a race today."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Why bless me, it's a ram!"

Pipsqueak: "Now we'll be late! I should have known Owlowiscious was trying to tell us something."

Ram: "Baa!"

Pipsqueak's Fireman: "I've got just the ticket to get him off the path."

Narrator: "Cried the fireman."

Pipsqueak's Fireman: "Food."

Narrator: "He found some cabbage leaves. The ram chomped happily away."

Pipsqueak: "Please can we go now?"

Ram: "Baa!"

Narrator: "When Pipsqueak arrived at the station, his driver told the stationmaster what had happened."

Stationmaster: "I've heard about this ram. He's always hungry."

Narrator: "A little while later, the station was decked with flowers."

Pipsqueak: "Maithwaite will definitely win first price."

Narrator: "Decided Pipsqueak.

He left his buffaloes and went to a siding where no one could see him."

Pipsqueak: "(Yawn) Time for a snooze."

Narrator: "He thought. But it wasn't."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "We better see what all that noise is about."

Narrator: "Said his driver.

Pipsqueak was shocked. Flowers were scattered everywhere."

Pipsqueak: "It's that ram. He's made a meal out of the station too."

Narrator: "Then there was trouble."

Passengers: "We can't get into the waiting room!"

Narrator: "The passengers cried."

Stationmaster: "Why not?"

Narrator: "Asked the stationmaster."

Passengers: "The ram won't let us!"

Narrator: "Everyone looked at the ram, and the ram looked at them."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "He's not alone."

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pipsqueak's driver."

Boys: "Let us out!"

Narrator: "Begged the boys."

Boys: "We're sorry!"

Stationmaster: "Well, look at that!"

Narrator: "Said the stationmaster."

Stationmaster: "The boys are the culprits, not the ram. He was just making sure they did no more damage."

Boys: "We thought it would be fun, but it wasn't. We'll put everything back."

Narrator: "A few days, Hoity Toity invited some of the animals to Maithwaite, winner of the Best Dressed Station award."

Pipsqueak: "I'm sorry, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Whispered Pipsqueak."

Braeburn: "You made the right choice."

Narrator: "Then Hoity Toity made an announcement."

Hoity Toity: "There is one more prize for our good friend, the ram. Here it is. And I'll eat my hat if you don't like it."

Narrator: "Then Owlowiscious landed. The wind from his wings blew Hoity Toity's hat off."

Ram: (while eating Hoity Toity's hat) "Baa!"

Hoity Toity: "Well, seems I wouldn't be able to eat my hat even if I had to."

Narrator: "Everyone laughed, and the only sound from the ram was a contented hiccup."

Ram: (Hiccups)

Put Upon Pipsqueak

Narrator: "Pipsqueak puffed grumpily into the yards. He was feeling put upon and said so."

Pipsqueak: "I feel put upon."

Narrator: "He complained to Spike. Spike was confused."

Spike: "Put upon what? The road?"

Pipsqueak: "No. Put upon with work. Driver says he is, too."

Spike: "Put upon. What a silly saying!"

Narrator: "Replied Spike. But Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle liked it, and they sang about it, too."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Pipsqueak's been put upon, put upon, put upon. Pipsqueak's been put upon, poor old Pipsqueak!"

Pipsqueak: "Pipsqueak is being put upon. I am! I am! I am!"

Narrator: "He collect metal from the foundry, coal from the yards, flour from the mills, rock from the quarries and fuel from the depot. Then he delivered it all to the docks.

Next, he collected some empty changelings."

Changelings: "Who's this dirty little filly?"

Narrator: "Cried the changelings."

Changelings: "We want Spike or Soarin!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak ignored them."

Pipsqueak: "Put upon, put upon, that's what I am!"

Narrator: "That night, all the animals laughed at him."

Spike: "We can see what's been put upon you!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Silence!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Pipsqueak, you've done a good day's work. Now get a good night's rest."

Pipsqueak: "Yes, sir. Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Next morning, he took some changelings to the coal yards. Then he had to push empty changelings to the mine shaft. When he arrived, there was trouble. The foreman spoke to his driver."

Foreman: "The changelings are stuck on the mechanism. All they need is a good push."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "We'll do it right away."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak walked back to where a large canvas barrier was used to protect his path from loose rocks. Pipsqueak charged at the line of changelings too fast and too hard."

Pipsqueak: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Gasped Pipsqueak.

The changelings broke free but ran out of controls to the mines below."

Changelings: "On, on! Faster, faster!"

Narrator: "The silly changelings yelled.

Then there was trouble again."

(Changelings crash)

(Siren goes off)

Miner: "Get out of here fast! The mine's collapsing!"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "We'll just have to make a run for it, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Called his driver."

Pipsqueak: "There's going to be an avalanche!"

Narrator: "Wailed Pipsqueak. And he was right. Worse still, the path his was on began to crumble."

Pipsqueak: "Oh help!"

Narrator: "Wailed Pipsqueak.

Then he remembered something he had seen earlier."

Pipsqueak: "There's a canvas barrier by the path. That might save us."

Narrator: "There were just in time.

Pipsqueak was right. The canvas did indeed save them. But the miners didn't know that."

Foreman: "The avalanche has buried a filly and its crew."

Narrator: "Shouted the foreman."

Foreman: "We must help them."

Narrator: "When Pipsqueak had been rescued, Hoity Toity spoke to his driver and fireman, then to Pipsqueak."

Hoity Toity: "Driver told me how brave you were, Pipsqueak. As a reward, you will be refured at the works."

Pipsqueak: "Oh thank you, sir!"

Narrator: "When he returned, Pipsqueak's fur glistened in the sun."

Spike: "I'm sorry we teased you, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "You were certainly put upon by that avalanche."

Pipsqueak: "Yes, indeed. But just look at my new fur. Now, I don't mind that being put upon me."

Braeburn & The Flood

Narrator: "It had been raining hard for weeks. Braeburn was feeling miserable. Everywhere was wet, wet, wet.

His path runs through a village. The water in the river had risen with the rain. Only a great wall, known as a dam, was stopping the water from overflowing.

Pipsqueak arrived just as Braeburn was about to inspect the dam for any damage."

Pipsqueak: "Driver tells me it may be dangerous up there. Please be careful, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Braeburn: "I'll try."

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn bravely. Pipsqueak watched anxiously as Braeburn trundled away.

His journey took him over a wooden bridge at the end of the village. The river surged dangerously beneath it.

Owlowiscious the Owl was inspecting the dam as Braeburn arrived."

Braeburn's Driver: "Be brave, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Called his driver."

Braeburn's Driver: "We have to cross to the other side."

Narrator: "The dam did not look safe at all. Braeburn was very worried. Soon he knew why."

Braeburn's Driver: "The dam's breaking up! We must warn everyone!"

Narrator: "Braeburn shunted back as fast as his hooves would let him.

Pipsqueak was waiting anxiously for Braeburn by the bridge. The river had risen so high that the bridge was in danger of collapsing."

Braeburn's Driver: "The dam's breaking up! We must find high ground!"

Narrator: "Shouted Braeburn's driver."

Pipsqueak: "Your only chance is to cross the bridge."

Narrator: "Called Pipsqueak."

Braeburn: "It doesn't look safe to me!"

Narrator: "Wailed Braeburn."

Braeburn's Driver: "It's our only chance."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Braeburn's Driver: "If the dam breaks, we'll be done for."

Narrator: "Braeburn was halfway across the bridge when disaster struck."

(Dam breaks and Braeburn floats away on the bridge)

Braeburn: "Heeeelp!"

Narrator: "Called Braeburn."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "We'll follow him on our path. It meets the river further down."

Narrator: "As Braeburn floated helplessly in the floodwaters, they passed a sign that made them shudder.

BEWARE THE WATERFALL"

Braeburn's Driver: "If we go over that waterfall, we're doomed!"

Narrator: "Then they saw Owlowiscious, who swooped low and shouted urgently to them."

Owlowiscious: "We're going to drop a rope to you. Attach it to yourself, quickly now!"

Narrator: "And they did, to one of Braeburn's hooves. Just then, Pipsqueak arrived. Owlowiscious flew over to him."

Owlowiscious: "Catch the rope and pull Braeburn to safety!"

Narrator: "He called."

(Pipsqueak pulls Braeburn to safety)

"Braeburn was safe at last.

When the floods were over and the dam mended, the villagers had a big party for Braeburn, hosted by Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "You were very brave, Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Thanks to Owlowiscious."

Pipsqueak: "I could never have been so brave, Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Oh, I'm sure you would be, but you never know till you've tried."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak rather hoped he'd never have to."

Haunted Filthy Rich

Narrator: "It was a moonlit night. Filthy Rich was taking some changelings to the station by the lake."

(Owl Hoots)

Shining Armor: "Whenever that owl hoots, a mist rolls in."

Narrator: "Murmured Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "There's a legend that when the mist's about, there's a ghost about, too. Take care on the old line, Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Stupid bird."

Narrator: "Said Filth Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Owls, mist, ghosts, Shining Armor's going soft in the head. There's no mist."

Narrator: "But Filthy Rich was wrong."

Filthy Rich: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Cried Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "It's an amber lamp."

Narrator: "Murmured his driver."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "That means 'proceed with caution'.

Who's there?"

Narrator: "No one replied.

Filthy Rich crept slowly forward. He stopped by a tree. It had a sign nailed to it. 'BEWARE OF THE VIADUCT'.

The driver was surprised."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "No one warned us about that before. And look! The light's red, and the gates are closed! A-a-a-a-and there's a fogman's coat! But where is its owner?"

Narrator: "Then, they saw a light move within the station building."

Filthy Rich: "G-g-g-g-ghosts!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Shining Armor was right!"

Filthy Rich's Driver: "Something very strange is happening."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "I think it's best we go back."

Filthy Rich: "So do I!"

Narrator: "Agreed Filthy Rich.

By morning, the mist had cleared. A workman was talking about the unsafe viaduct."

Workman: "Lucky you didn't cross it last night."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "Yes, but we don't know who warned us!"

Narrator: "Replied Filthy Rich's driver.

Later that day, he spoke to Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "The viaduct has been repaired. We can take the changelings back along the old line tonight."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich really didn't want to.

But when nightfall came, he was sizzling nicely. Suddenly, an owl hooted, and then Big Mac thundered by."

A Changeling: "Oh, look, Filthy Rich's spooked."

Narrator: "Said a changeling."

(Changelings laugh)

Filthy Rich: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "Snapped Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "I'm not scared!"

Narrator: "But he was.

A little later, the fog came down.

As they approached the same area, they saw the amber light again."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "Here we go."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich's driver.

Then, unknown to Filthy Rich, the gates mysteriously closed by themselves, and the light went red. The changelings had seen everything, and they were spooked."

Changelings: "Faster! Faster! There's a ghost about!"

Filthy Rich: "Stop! Stop!"

Narrator: "Yelled Filthy Rich."

(Filthy Rich and the changelings crash though the gate)

"A mysterious figure watched Filthy Rich go by. Ahead was a landslide blocking the line. Filthy Rich stopped hard, but the changelings hit some of the rubble and plunged into the ravine."

(Changelings crash)

"Just then, Filthy Rich's driver saw a strange sight coming towards them."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "What's that?"

Narrator: "He said, the fireman laughed."

Filthy Rich's Fireman: "That's our ghost. It's Grampa Gruff, the griffon."

Narrator: "Grampa Gruff was very cross."

Grampa Gruff: "I tried to warn you about the viaduct. Why didn't you pay attention?"

Filthy Rich's Driver: "We're sorry."

Narrator: "Replied the driver."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "Is there anything we can do to thank you?"

Grampa Gruff: "I'd like to operate that old station. If you let me, I promise it won't spook Filthy Rich again."

Narrator: "And in a little while, Grampa Gruff's wish was granted."

Hoity Toity: "You and your station will be really useful."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Let's hear a hearty 'thank you' to the friendliest, uh, ghost in Ponyville."

Narrator: "Everyone cheered, especially Filthy Rich, who was the happiest of all."

Double Teething Troubles

Narrator: "Snips and Snails the unicorns work in the clay mines and quarries near the docks. Their work is important, but it can be hot and dirty. Sometimes, this makes the unicorns naughty.

One morning, they were feeling very naughty indeed."

Snips: "That's my line of changelings!"

Narrator: "Huffed Snips."

Snails: "It's not! It's mine!"

Narrator: "Snorted Snails."

Snails: "Your's is over there!"

Snips: "S'mine!"

Snails: "S'not!"

Snips: "S'mine!"

Snails: "S'not!"

Narrator: "Their friend, Fancy Pants was worried."

Fancy Pants: "Stop quarreling you two or the only thing you'll have left to share is..."

(Snips and Snails walk forward and bump into each other)

Fancy Pants: "Trouble!"

Snips: "Silly!"

Narrator: "Snapped Snips."

Snails: "Silly yourself!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Snails."

Hoity Toity: "Snips and Snails behave yourselves!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "It's clear to me that we need another horse to help out. There is only one available. His name is Trouble Shoes, and he's keen to make an impression."

Fancy Pants: "If I were you,"

Narrator: "Whispered Fancy Pants."

Fancy Pants: "I'd get back to work right away."

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Hoity Toity was having doubts about his own decision."

Hoity Toity: "I hope Trouble Shoes doesn't cause even more confusion. He's bound to have teething troubles."

Narrator: "And he was right."

Trouble Shoes: "Oh, my hooves and tail! I wasn't expecting this hill.

Oh, what's that?"

(Trouble Shoes falls down)

Narrator: "Fancy Pants came to the rescue."

Trouble Shoes: "Sorry."

Narrator: "Said Trouble Shoes."

Trouble Shoes: "I'm all hot and bothered. I've got teething troubles, you know."

Narrator: "The news soon spread."

Spike: "Apparently it's teething troubles."

Narrator: "Confided Spike to Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Hey, you two. Trouble Shoes' got a tooth ache. Good luck."

Snips: "What does Pipsqueak want to wish us good luck?"

Narrator: "Asked Snips."

Snails: "Because he knows we'll need it. A horse with a tooth ache must be the worst horse of all."

Narrator: "Then their manager spoke to them."

Manager: "You will take your loads to the docks and rest there tonight. There's a lot of hard work to do tomorrow."

Narrator: "It was dark when the unicorns reached the docks. They left the changelings by the key and scurried off to the house."

Soarin: "You two look glum."

Narrator: "Sighed Soarin."

Snips: "It's Trouble Shoes' fault."

Narrator: "Replied Snips."

Snips: "He's got a tooth ache."

Soarin: "He hasn't got a tooth ache. He's got teething troubles. That means he's new and this causes him some problems. In his case, it's his hooves."

Narrator: "Next morning, the unicorns heard an unfamiliar sound."

Snips and Snails: "Oh no! It's Trouble Shoes!"

Narrator: "And it was."

Trouble Shoes: "Hello. I'll soon sort these changelings out. You take the front and I'll push from behind. Ha, ha. What fun."

Narrator: "All went well as they set off.

Then they came to a hill."

Snails: "Come on, come on! Push harder you silly horse!"

Narrator: "Shouted Snails. But Trouble Shoes couldn't push any harder."

Trouble Shoes: "I'm falling down again."

(Trouble Shoes falls down)

Snips: "Oh, pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Snips."

Driver: "You know what?"

Narrator: "Sighed the driver."

Driver: "Let's try and finish the journey anyway. It means we'll have to pull Trouble Shoes as well. Can you do it unicorns?"

Snips and Snails: "We'll try."

Narrator: "And sure enough, they could.

That night, Hoity Toity came to see them."

Hoity Toity: "Well done Snips and Snails! I've sent Trouble Shoes back to the works. Can you manage alone?"

Snips and Snails: "Oh, yes sir."

Snips: "Fancy Pants,"

Narrator: "Whispered Snips."

Snips: "I'm sorry we were rude to you."

Snails: "And."

Narrator: "Added Snails."

Snails: "Trouble Shoes was really quite friendly."

Soarin: "And you know what friends do?"

Narrator: "Murmured Soarin."

Snips and Snails: "No, what?"

Soarin: "They always say 'Good Night' to each other."

Narrator: "And so they did, but they still chattered about Trouble Shoes and his teething troubles all night long."

Noteworthy Gets Lost

Narrator: "Noteworthy the Music Pony works closely with his friend, Slinky.

One day, Hoity Toity came to see him."

Hoity Toity: "Slinky tells me you're in need of a change. So I want you to help Braeburn and Twilight Sparkle at the quarry."

Noteworthy: "Oh, thank you sir."

Narrator: "Said Noteworthy."

Noteworthy: "Shall I be away long?"

Hoity Toity: "Just today. But please be careful. It is easy to get lost up there so be back before dark."

Noteworthy's Driver: "We will."

Narrator: "Said the driver.

Noteworthy soon arrived at the quarry."

Braeburn: "We're glad you're here to help us."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Noteworthy: "Are these my changelings?"

Narrator: "Asked Noteworthy."

Twilight Sparkle: "Only some of them. There's masses more in the sidings."

Narrator: "Replied Twilight Sparkle."

Noteworthy: "The more the merrier."

Narrator: "Noteworthy was really enjoying himself. The dustier he became, the harder he worked. Twilight and Braeburn were impressed.

Then the foreman spoke to his driver."

Foreman: "We have a night special to take to building site at the new branch line. Do you want to take the load?"

Noteworthy's Driver: "Yes, please."

Narrator: "Said the driver. But he should have asked Hoity Toity first.

Night came."

Braeburn: "Be careful, Noteworthy."

Narrator: "Advised Braeburn."

Noteworthy: "I will and thank you for a lovely day. I do hope I can come back again."

Twilight Sparkle: "The path can be spooky."

Narrator: "Said Twilight."

Noteworthy: "Thank you for the warning."

Narrator: "And with that, Noteworthy puffed away.

Noteworthy arrived on time and made the delivery of rocks and stones for the workmen. Then he set off for home.

That's when the trouble began. The fog came down."

Noteworthy: "Twilight was right. Suddenly, everything does look spooky."

Noteworthy's Driver: "There's a signalbox."

Narrator: "Called his driver."

Noteworthy's Driver: "And the signal light is green. Someone must have been expecting us."

Narrator: "But they weren't.

The sign was posted in the wrong direction, but Noteworthy didn't realize this."

Noteworthy: "Home, here we come."

Narrator: "Then they approached an unknown area.

The driver made a decision."

Noteworthy's Driver: "It's best if we rest here until the fog clears."

Noteworthy: "What are those strange sounds?"

Narrator: "Wondered Noteworthy. Then the fog slowly lifted."

Noteworthy: "Oh no! We're in the scrapyards!"

Narrator: "His driver and fireman went for help. Noteworthy was all alone, but not for long. Two small ponies approached."

Diamond Tiara: "Got ya this time, Noteworthy! You'll make very fine scrap indeed. Grab him, Silver Spoon!"

Narrator: "The small ponies took him to the large smelter shed."

Diamond Tiara: "Bye, bye Noteworthy! (laughs)"

Narrator: "Noteworthy looked up. Above him was a huge grabber."

Noteworthy: "This pony's not for killing!"

Narrator: "The grabber wasn't listening.

But just as it was about to grab him, it stopped.

There stood Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "It's a good thing I'm visiting this yard tonight. Saving you from death is becoming a habit, Noteworthy. Please stop it!"

Noteworthy: "Yes, sir. But I have learned something."

Hoity Toity: "What's that?"

Noteworthy: "There's no place like home."

Hoity Toity: "And that's exactly where you're going now."

Noteworthy: "Music ponies forever."

Braeburn's Discovery

Narrator: "One morning, Hoity Toity and his grandchildren came to see Braeburn."

Hoity Toity: "Come on, Braeburn. We're all going to the seaside. We will walk next to Scootaloo."

Braeburn: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn happily.

They came to a small seaside station. Soon, the children were playing in the sand, building a splendid castle. Hoity Toity inspected it."

Hoity Toity: "My word. It's a very fine castle. Have you seen a real one like it?

Stephen and Bridget Hatt: "Yes."

Narrator: "Replied the children."

Stephen and Bridget: "It's here on the island."

Narrator: "And they showed him a map."

Hoity Toity: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Pondered Hoity Toity.

They met Braeburn at the harbor."

Hoity Toity: "Come along. We are going exploring."

Narrator: "Soon they were in the wildest part of Equestria. They stopped by a lonely signalbox."

Signalman: Where are you going?"

Narrator: "Asked the signalman."

Hoity Toity: "We are trying to find an old castle."

Signalman: "I know the place, sir."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "There's a small junction not too far down the path. Just switch the points."

Narrator: "When the fireman switched the points, their adventure really began."

Braeburn pushed past branches and bushes until they came to another little junction. There, they saw two signs saying: To The Castle and To The Mine."

Hoity Toity: "We'll go to the castle first."

Narrator: "Braeburn stopped by an old water fountain."

Stephen and Bridget Hatt: "There's the castle!"

Hoity Toity: "Yes."

Narrator: "Replied Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "And now we shall visit the mine."

Narrator: "Once upon a time, the mine had been worked by the little toys and their paths were still in place. But now everything is very rusty and overgrown.

Hoity Toity was most impressed, but Braeburn was rather scared. He was glad when it was time to go home."

Hoity Toity: "I think the castle and the mine will make a fine place for visitors, but it'll take some hard work first."

Braeburn: "Y-Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn nervously.

Hoity Toity's plans were soon put into action. But Braeburn was still worried."

Braeburn: "I'm sure this place is haunted."

Narrator: "He thought."

Braeburn's Driver: "It's our turn to stay here on guard tonight, Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Oh y-y-yes. Why not?"

Narrator: "Stuttered Braeburn."

Spike: "Beware of the ghost, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Spike said."

Braeburn: "What ghost?"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn."

Spike: "The old warrior ghost. Every night he gets dress, then goes hunting. Goodbye."

Narrator: "Night came. Braeburn looked anxiously around. Everything seemed rather spooky.

Quite suddenly, he heard a strange wheezing sound."

Braeburn: "It's the ghost!"

Narrator: "He wailed."

Braeburn's Driver: "What ghost?"

Narrator: "His driver asked."

Braeburn: "It's the old warrior! He's come to hunt me down!"

Braeburn's Driver: "Don't be so daft. We'll go and investigate."

Narrator: "They returned quite soon."

Braeburn's Fireman: "The old warrior wants to meet you."

Narrator: "Laughed his fireman."

Braeburn: "Can't it wait till morning?"

Narrator: "Replied Braeburn."

Braeburn's Driver: "Ghosts don't work day shifts."

Narrator: "Said his driver. Braeburn bravely made his way."

Braeburn: "Well, bless my hat!"

Narrator: "He exclaimed. There, in front of him, was a waiter pony."

Signalman: "This is your ghost, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "His name's really Savior Fare, but we call him the old warrior because he's so brave."

Narrator: "Savior Fare and Braeburn are now friends. They take the visitors to the castle and the mine. If there are any ghost here, they certainly help to make the place very happy."

Something in the Air

Narrator: "One day, Spike was at the keyside of a small village. Fish was being loaded onto his changelings.

The work took a long time, the Fishermen were using old equipment and Spike as worried."

Spike: "I'm going to be late for Filthy Rich at the docks. He won't like this. Please hurry up."

Narrator: "Spike was rudely interrupted."

(Crate of fish lands on Spike)

Narrator: "His driver and fireman laughed."

Spike: "Phew!"

Narrator: "Sniffed Spike."

Spike: "What a pong!"

Narrator: "He was glad when they were walking along the beautiful coastal run.

Then, they saw a man waving a red flag."

Spike: "What's the matter now?"

Man: "High tides are damaging the path."

Narrator: "Reported the man."

Man: "I've marked the spot."

Spike's Driver: "We'll go and inspect."

Narrator: "Said the driver."

Spike's Driver: "It would be dangerous for heavy animals like Filthy Rich."

Narrator: "Agreed the driver."

Spike: "But for Spike, it's safe enough."

Narrator: "The guard put a red oil lamp by the damaged path to warn animals."

Guard: "When we get to the docks, I'll tell them to close the path."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was waiting for Spike's changelings."

Filthy Rich: "Pah! You're late! And that smell is making me ill."

Spike: "It's the fish."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Spike: "And there's danger on the path. That's why we're late."

Filthy Rich: "Pah! You're the only danger on the path, Spike. Now stop wasting time, and get your changelings hitched to my line!"

Narrator: "Spike's driver and fireman were in the yardmaster's office when they heard Filthy Rich. He was leaving the station with his long, heavy line of changelings called the Flying Kipper."

Spike's Driver: "What route is Filthy Rich taking tonight?"

Narrator: "Asked the driver."

Yardmaster: "The Coastal Run, it's the quickest."

Spike's Driver: "But I told you."

Narrator: "Gasped the driver."

Spike's Driver: "That's dangerous for a big animal like Filthy Rich!"

Narrator: "The yardmaster quickly phoned the signalman.

Filthy Rich roared past the signalbox."

Filthy Rich: "I'll soon make up for lost time."

Narrator: "The signalman couldn't hear the warning. By the time he did, Filthy Rich was far away in a cloud of steam.

But when Filthy Rich reached the Coastal tracks, his hopes for a fast run were dashed. Fog floated everywhere."

Filthy Rich: "I can't see."

Narrator: "Cried Filthy Rich. Nor could his driver.

And when he could, it was too late."

(Filthy Rich lands in the water)

Narrator: "As soon as the tide was high enough, Filthy Rich was craned out of the water."

Hoity Toity: "Ponies don't swim Filthy Rich! You were meant to deliver fish, not swim with them. You should know that by now!"

Filthy Rich: "Yes sir. I'm sorry sir."

Narrator: "When Filthy Rich arrived at the docks, Gustave Le Grand looked down at him."

Gustave Le Grand: "My, my, Filthy Rich. I expect you'll have some fishy tales to tell. But my advice, have a long shower first."

Narrator: "But there was worst to come."

Boy #1: "Look! They caught all this fish and a brown whale too."

Boy #2: "It's not a whale, it's a monster."

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was most upset.

Spike now felt sorry for Filthy Rich."

Spike: "Come on. Your driver says it's time for a nice shower. Then, you'll feel much better."

Narrator: "And Filthy Rich did."

Filthy Rich: "I'm sorry I was rude to you, Spike."

Spike: "That's alright. But can you smell something?"

Filthy Rich: "W-W-What?"

Spike: "Fresh air!"

Filthy Rich: "Oh yes!"

Narrator: "Replied Filthy Rich happily."

Spike, Pipsqueak and Matilda

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."

Spike & The Rumours

Narrator: "Spike the Dragon loves his route. One day, when he stopped at a small station, some children looked sad."

Bridget Hatt: "They've closed your playground and our favorite sand pit."

Boy: "Teacher says the sand is soiled and too dirty to play in."

Children: "Please help us, Spike."

Spike: "I'll see what I can do."

Narrator: "Replied Spike kindly.

Spike hoped things weren't quite as bad as the children had made them out to be. But as he passed their playground, a large sign read "Playground closed until further notice"."

Spike: "The children were right."

Narrator: "Thought Spike sadly.

He puffed into the yards and was just about to tell the other animals about the playground when Pipsqueak rushed in."

Big Macintosh: "You look glum, little Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh."

Pipsqueak: "Hoity Toity told driver that he's using Owlowiscious to show a visitor the town instead of using any of us animals."

Big Macintosh: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Filthy Rich: "Disgusting!"

Narrator: "Snorted Filthy Rich."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Animals on the ground are meant to take visitors around our town. Not that old bird!"

Narrator: "Cranky exclaimed.

Big Mac was the first to see Owlowiscious."

Big Macintosh: "Owlowiscious thinks he can go faster than me. I'll show him!"

Narrator: "Next, it was Filthy Rich's turn."

Filthy Rich: "Hoity Toity has chosen Owlowiscious because he thinks he's more important than me. Well, he's not! Owlowiscious can't fly through tunnels!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak stopped by a signal on his route near a field where sheep were grazing. Owlowiscious hovered for a while, then buzzed away."

Pipsqueak: "I know what he's doing. He's counting sheep."

Narrator: "And Pipsqueak puffed along his path feeling much better about things.

That evening, the animals talked about the situation."

Big Macintosh: "Owlowiscious wants to get rid of us!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Filthy Rich: "He doesn't need tunnels!"

Narrator: "Added Filthy Rich."

Pipsqueak: "Don't worry, he's just counting sheep."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak."

Big Macintosh: "Counting sheep? Pah!"

Narrator: "Snorted Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "He's counting how many animals he can get rid of. He'll see how useful I am tomorrow!"

Narrator: "Spike wanted to mentioned the children's playground, but solving the mystery of Owlowiscious and the visitor came first.

The next day, Big Mac was traveling to collect his buffaloes."

Big Macintosh's Driver: "We'll show that old bird just how fast you can go, Big Mac!"

Narrator: "Said his driver. But because they were watching Owlowiscious, they missed a signal and went onto the wrong path.

Big Mac was traveling to trouble. Ahead was a tunnel under repair. His driver braked hard, but it was too late."

(CRASH!)

Narrator: "Later, Spike pulled Big Mac clear with the breakdown crane. Hoity Toity spoke severely to Big Mac's driver."

Spike: "Will Big Mac be scrapped, sir?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike sadly."

Hoity Toity: "What makes you think that?"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity. Spike decided to pluck up courage."

Spike: "Because the animals think the visitor is here to see if we can be replaced by Owlowiscious."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity laughed."

Hoity Toity: "Well, the animals are wrong, and you shouldn't listen to rumours, Spike. This gentleman is making a playground for the children. It was easier to find a suitable site from up in the air."

Visitor: "And what's more,"

Narrator: "Said the visitor."

Visitor: "That tunnel sand will be perfect for the playground. Sand we found by accident, you might say."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity still uses Owlowiscious to fly above the town. But all the animals know that Owlowiscious isn't spying on them. He is just being very useful."

Dr. Hooves' Find

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves and his tortoise, Tank, like working in the big yards. But one morning, Tank noticed that Dr. Hooves was unhappy. He decided to find out why."

Tank: "Uh, excuse me, Mr. Hooves. It seems to me that things are not well with you, if you forgive me for mentioning it."

Dr. Hooves: "You're quite right, Tank. All I do is shunt these changelings onto the turntable. I long for a nice run. It's what a pony really needs."

Tank: "Quite so, Mr. Hooves. May I suggest you speak to Hoity Toity about your problems."

Narrator: "But Dr. Hooves said nothing. He just grew unhappier, and he was rough with the changelings."

Changelings: "You're no good, Dr. Hooves. You're dangerous. We want Pipsqueak!"

Dr. Hooves: "Pipsqueak is far too busy to be bothered by the likes of you!"

Narrator: "And Dr. Hooves bumped the changelings hard."

(Dr. Hooves pushes the changelings into the turntable well)

Workman: "You silly pony!"

Narrator: "Shouted a workman."

Workman: "It'll take a long time to mend this turntable, which will cause confusion and delay."

Narrator: "That night, Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "Dr. Hooves, you have caused confusion! I thought you could control changelings. You shall work the mail run for a while. Maybe the night air will clear your head."

Dr. Hooves: "Yes, sir. Sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Dr. Hooves sadly."

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "Cheer up, old cheap."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "The mail run is a fine run for a pony like you."

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves smiled, but he still felt he had let everyone down.

His driver took him along the coastal run with the mail. The fresh air couldn't help but brighten Dr. Hooves' spirits.

They made good speed until it was time to collect some important mail from Owlowiscious the Owl."

Dr. Hooves: "Come on, Owlowiscious!"

Narrator: "At last, Owlowiscious landed."

Owlowiscious: "Sorry I'm late, earth pony. Had a bit of a problem with one of my wings. Kept letting me down when I was meant to be up. You know how it is."

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "We know that we'll be late with our first run."

Narrator: "Replied Dr. Hooves' driver.

Soon, they were on their way again. Ahead was a red signal light.

Dr. Hooves didn't realized that the signalman had dozed off. Dr. Hooves whistled several time, but the signal stayed red."

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "There must be something wrong with the signal. We'll go slowly and stop by the signal box."

Narrator: "Said his driver.

But they never reached it. The points before the signal box were set to an old path. They were going the wrong way.

Dr. Hooves' fireman was concerned."

Dr. Hooves' Fireman: "We need to find a water fountain soon."

Narrator: "Instead, they saw an old station. Disaster lay ahead!"

(CRASH!)

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Hoity Toity was worried."

Hoity Toity: "Dr. Hooves has not returned. We'll send out a search party."

Narrator: "Soon, he was high in the sky with Owlowiscious."

Hoity Toity: "There they are!"

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "It wasn't Dr. Hooves' fault."

Narrator: "Sighed the driver."

Hoity Toity: "I'm aware of that. I'm just glad to see you are all safe."

Narrator: "Then he saw something. It was an empty old house beside the station. He went to inspect it.

When he returned, he spoke to Dr. Hooves."

Hoity Toity: "You have found another attraction for our town. We'll make this house as good as new, and visitors can have tea and crumpets there."

Dr Hooves: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Sighed Dr. Hooves."

Dr. Hooves: "Getting lost can be interesting, but being found is much nicer. Especially if it makes a pony feel Really Useful."

Happy Ever After

Narrator: "The animals in Ponyville love holiday time.

Pipsqueak was taking some changelings to the docks. Featherweight was working in a field close to the path."

Featherweight: "Hello, Pipsqueak. Nice day for it, isn't it?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was confused."

Pipsqueak: "Nice day for what?"

Featherweight: "Goldie Delicious' daughter is getting married today."

Pipsqueak: "Oh, yes, of course."

Narrator: "But when Pipsqueak saw Goldie Delicious, she standing by her gate waving a red flag."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Asked the driver."

Goldie Delicious: "I've forgotten about the good luck package for the bride."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was puzzled."

Pipsqueak: "What's a good luck package?"

Goldie Delicious: "It must contain something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Can you help, please?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak didn't know how, but his driver was determined."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "We'll certainly try."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak had to stop at Shining Armor's station to have a drink of water."

Pipsqueak: "We've got to find a good luck package. Do you know what that is?"

Shining Armor: "Oh yes, indeed. Something old, something new,"

Pipsqueak: "Something borrowed and something blue."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak cut in."

Pipsqueak: "But where do we find them?"

Narrator: "Shining Armor smiled."

Shining Armor: "They're probably staring you in your head. Now I have to fetch my special delivery. I'm taking guests to the wedding."

Narrator: "When Pipsqueak arrived at the docks, he looked all around him. Suddenly he saw changeling. It had a new set of shiny buffers."

Pipsqueak: "Look, look! The something new!"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "You're quite right, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Those buffers are just the ticket. I'll speak to the foreman."

Narrator: "He returned shortly."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Foreman said we can use them and borrow the changeling as well. So that's two things we found; something borrowed and something new."

Pipsqueak: "But what about the other things?"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "I'm sure we'll find them, too. Now we'd best be on our way."

Narrator: "As Pipsqueak was arranging more changelings into a siding, he heard a voice."

Matilda: "Hello, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "There was Matilda, who he and Spike had rescued from scrap."

Pipsqueak: "You're it!"

Narrator: "Squeaked Pipsqueak."

Matilda: "I'm what it?"

Narrator: "Said Matilda."

Pipsqueak: "The something old for the wedding!"

Narrator: "And Pipsqueak explained."

Pipsqueak: "Now we only have to find something blue, but what? And where?"

Pipsqueak's Driver: "You'll see."

Narrator: "Said his driver.

At last they reached the village where the wedding was to take place. Ahead was an old shed."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "What do you think of this, Pipsqueak?"

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Pipsqueak: "Well, bust my body! Spike, what are you doing here?"

Spike: "My gem is the something blue."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Now, Pipsqueak,"

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Goldie Delicious' chosen you to be her special guest."

Narrator: "When the bride and groom left the church for the party, Hoity Toity addressed everybody."

Hoity Toity: "Ladies and Gentleman, may I present the good luck package; something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. All found by Pipsqueak and his crew."

Narrator: "The animals whistled and everyone cheered."

Bride: "Thank you, Spike, and thank you, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said the bride."

Bride: "It's the best good luck package ever!"

Narrator: "And she kissed Pipsqueak. Spike laughed as Pipsqueak blushed bright red."

Pipsqueak: "I love weddings."

Narrator: "Sighed Pipsqueak that night."

Spike: "Did you enjoy your kiss?"

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak was embarrassed and pretended to be asleep."

Hoity Toity's Holiday

One day, Hoity Toity arranged with Spike to take Princess Celestia and his grandchildren to the seaside. The sun shone and everywhere looked splendid.

But Princess Celestia was feeling hot and tired. She took her troubles out on Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle."

Princess Celestia: "Those fillies are old and uncomfortable. Why don't you use them as beach huts instead?"

Narrator: "Spike was most upset."

Spike: "You won't let them turn Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle into beach huts, will you?"

Spike's Driver: "Of course not, Spike."

Narrator: "Replied his driver."

Spike's Driver: "But I must admit they could be smarten up."

Narrator: "The next day, Hoity Toity used Pipsqueak to take his family to Owlowiscious' park. They were just about to come near Owlowiscious when it happened."

Hoity Toity: "Ooh, what was that?"

Narrator: "Cried Hoity Toity."

Owlowiscious: "That's Lightning Dust."

Narrator: "Grumbled Owlowiscious."

Owlowiscious: "She's rude and flies much too low."

Hoity Toity: "So I can see. Please take us up, Owlowiscious before there's another disturbance."

Narrator: "A few days, Owlowiscious arrived at their holiday home with bad news."

Owlowiscious' Pilot: "It's Lightning Dust."

Narrator: "Said Owlowiscious' pilot."

Owlowiscious' Pilot: "She's gone missing. Do you wish to join the search party with us?"

Hoity Toity: "I think I better.

There's Lightning Dust!"

Narrator: "Called Hoity Toity.

Then he spoke to the pilot."

Hoity Toity: "You were showing off and flying dangerous. I will speak to your controller and request that you are grounded."

Lightning Dust's Pilot: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Replied the pilot."

Hoity Toity: "Now, if you'll excuse me, I shall return to my holiday."

Lightning Dust's Pilot: "Jolly good idea, sir."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity arranged to meet up with Braeburn and Scootaloo to take them somewhere special.

They arrived at a small river inland."

Stephen and Bridget Hatt: "What a beautiful boat!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed the children."

Hoity Toity: "It's my special treat."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity took the helm with Celestia beside him."

Hoity Toity: "It's so nice to be away from Ponyville for once."

Narrator: "He said to her."

Princess Celestia: "And far cleaner."

Narrator: "She replied. But life on the river is very different from that on the ground.

The family were enjoying themselves so much that they forgot to watch where they were going."

Hoity Toity: "Oh, botheration!"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "We're stuck!"

Narrator: "And they were. Other boats try to pull them off the mudbank, but it was no use. Pipsqueak saw the commotion and stopped."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Is there anything we can do to help?"

Narrator: "Called his driver."

Hoity Toity: "Yes, indeed there is.

This is the life, isn't it, my dear?"

Narrator: "Soon, they arrived at a small station. There was Spike with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle who were looking as smart as their new coats inside and out."

Princess Celestia: "My!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Celestia."

Princess Celestia: "What splendid fillies! So much more suitable than those old beach huts on feet."

Narrator: "No one said a word.

But that evening, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle spoke to Spike."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "It's very nice to get compliments, but no matter what we look like we're always be useful, won't we, Spike?"

Spike: "Of course."

Narrator: "Their friend replied."

A Surprise For Pipsqueak/A Big Surprise For Pipsqueak

Narrator: "Pipsqueak had been working in the coal yards. He was feeling bored and lonely with only the silly changelings for company."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Cheer up, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Hoity Toity has told me that we must be here again tomorrow. We've just got to get the best of a bad situation."

Pipsqueak: "I'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Sighed Pipsqueak.

Next morning, the changelings started teasing Pipsqueak."

Changelings: "Pipsqueak, Pipsqueak, white and small, he's no use to us at all, around the yards he'll puff and blow, but on the hills, he's oh so slow!"

Pipsqueak: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "Then he took the changelings to the coal hopper to be loaded up.

Pipsqueak still felt glum as he puffed up to the top of the hill.

He parked his changelings, and then set off back down to the mines. Not even the cheerful sight of Angel the Rabbit could bring a smile to Pipsqueak's face."

Angel: "What's the matter, Pipsqueak?"

Narrator: "Asked Angel."

Pipsqueak: "Nothing exciting ever happens. That's the matter."

Narrator: "Sighed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "It's just, coal, coal, coal! And changelings, changelings, changelings! I'm bored, bored, bored!"

Angel: "Excitement is surprising."

Narrator: "Observed Angel."

Angel: "You never know when it'll happen. Overwise, it wouldn't be exciting. Toodle peep!"

Pipsqueak: "It would be surprising if something surprising happened."

Narrator: "Muttered Pipsqueak.

Later, he stopped by the water fountain for a drink."

Braeburn: "Hello, Pipsqueak. How are things?"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "Boring!"

Braeburn: "Well, why not have a few spins on a turntable? You'll like that."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Pipsqueak: "I think it'll just make me giddy."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak's driver interrupted."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Stop gossiping, you two!"

Braeburn: "Cheer up, Pipsqueak. You'll soon know more about changelings than any other animal. That'll be exciting."

Narrator: "Called Braeburn.

The changelings were still grumbling, and there was more of them than ever."

Changelings: "You much too small to pull all of us. We want another animal that will be struggling up the hill all night! All night, all right, you can puff and blow, but on the hill, you're still too slow! Ha, ha!"

Pipsqueak: "S-Slow yourself!"

Narrator: "Stuttered Pipsqueak."

Changelings: "Temper, temper."

Narrator: "Giggled the changelings. Pipsqueak decided to simply carry on."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Go to it, Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Shouted the driver. The changelings were still joking."

Changelings: "Too slow! More power! Here all night! Tomorrow too!"

Pipsqueak: "Be quiet!"

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak angrily. Then, there was trouble. A rope broke."

Changelings: "Surprise, surprise! Catch us if you can!"

Pipsqueak: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak

Pipsqueak's driver told the signalman, and the yard foreman told Hoity Totiy what was happening."

Yard Foreman: "They're heading for the big hill. It'll slow them down, but they may roll back again, right into the village."

Hoity Toity: "Then we'll just have to stop them, won't we?"

Narrator: "The chase was on.

As they approached the hill, they overtook the changelings. Hoity Toity and Angel screeched to a halt, and waited for them near the top.

The hill slowed the changelings right down to a stand still. Then the men quickly put wooden blocks behind their feet so they couldn't roll backwards. The changelings were now secured.

Just then, Pipsqueak arrived."

Angel: "Well, what do you think of that?"

Narrator: "Joked Angel."

Angel: "A good chase is always exciting."

Pipsqueak: "It was certainly a surprise."

Narrator: "Decided Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "And you were right, Angel. A really useful filly should never be surprised by surprise."

Make Someone Happy

Narrator: "It was holiday time in Ponyville. All the animals were working happily, except for Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Why should a splendid donkey like me take messy changelings instead of buffaloes? Pipsqueak or Dr. Hooves should do it, I'm too important!"

Narrator: "Spike was cross."

Spike: "Cranky, why don't you think about something or someone else for a change. You'll be surprise and how much better you'll feel if you do."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, please! Being important is the only thing for me to think about. Huh!"

Pipsqueak: "That pegasus pony's making a great deal of noise."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak to Dr. Hooves."

Dr. Hooves: "Her name's Lighning Dust."

Narrator: "Replied Dr. Hooves."

Dr. Hooves: "And she's flying around telling everyone about the fair that's arriving today."

Spike: "What are you two doing here?"

Dr. Hooves: "Hoity Toity wants us to pick up a very special load for the harbor."

Pipsqueak: "And I think it's got something to do with the fair."

Narrator: "Then they puffed away.

Meanwhile, Cranky was collecting quarry changelings from the yards."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Dustier and dustier!"

Narrator: "He grumbled. Then he saw Goldie Delicious."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "She looks miserable."

Cranky Doodle Donkey's Driver: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Asked Cranky's driver."

Goldie Delicious: "My sister has run to tell me she can't come to stay with me. I was so looking forward to her visit."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity soon heard the sad news."

Hoity Toity: "We must cheer her up. Send Owlowiscious the Owl to pick her up immediately."

Narrator: "A few minutes later, there was a surprise for Goldie Delicious."

Owlowiscious: "All president and correct."

Narrator: "Called Owlowiscious."

Owlowiscious: "I'm here for a flying visit. Hurry aboard Goldie Delicious and fly the sky with me. Compliments of Hoity Toity."

Goldie Delicious: "Oh, how lovely!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Owlowiscious' made my fur dustier than ever!"

Narrator: "Muttered Cranky. But he was happy for Goldie Delicious.

Soon, she was flying high with Owlowiscious."

Goldie Delicious: "I've never seen the town like this before. It's wonderful!"

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Pipsqueak and Dr. Hooves had arrived at the docks. Gustave Le Grand was unloading an old tramp steamer."

Gustave: "Hey down there, you two, I'm playing lucky dip in the tramper's hold, and all these are for you."

Pipsqueak: "Wooden horses!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak exclaimed."

Pipsqueak: "For the carousel ride. It's going to be a very exciting fair!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It is indeed."

Narrator: "Whistled Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Hoity Toity has order me to stop pulling changelings and go to the station instead, Something to do with Goldie Delicious. Goodbye!"

Pipsqueak: "Well, what do you think of that?"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak.

Goldie Delicious was waiting for Cranky with Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Now this is your very special treat. Cranky will take you on a mystery ride, and I shall meet you at your destination."

Narrator: "Cranky took Goldie Delicious along her favorite coastal route to Ponyville Bay. When he arrived there, a big surprise awaited Goldie Delicious."

Goldie Delicious: "Oh!"

Narrator: "She cried."

Goldie Delicious: "You brought me to the fair ground, how lovely!"

Narrator: "Best of all, Hoity Toity invited her to make the announcements."

Goldie Delicious: "I declare this fair ground open!"

Narrator: "Goldie Delicious had the first ride on the carousel."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You were quite right, Spike."

Narrator: "Cranky whispered."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Making someone happy does cheer you up."

Narrator: "Then together, they watched the fun of the fair."

Busy Going Backwards

Narrator: "Tank the Tortoise was feeling sad. Everywhere he looked, he could see animals moving steadily forwards. They all looked confident and cheerful.

One day, he decided to talk to Dr. Hooves the Earth Pony."

Tank: "I'm always going backwards, Mr. Hooves. I have forward thinking views. I could be a leader, if you know what I mean."

Big Macintosh: "You can't be a leader without a line to follow you. You don't have a line."

Narrator: "Big Macintosh said. Tank felt sadder still. Dr. Hooves wanted to help."

Dr. Hooves: "You're a very useful tortoise, Tank. You help me stop, and you keep my changelings in order when we go down hills."

Tank: "I know, Mr. Hooves. But it would be so excited to go forwards for a change instead of always seeing things sliding away from me."

Narrator: "The changelings were cross with Tank."

Changelings: "Who's he to start complaining? He's lucky to be able to look after us. Let's teach him a lesson!"

Narrator: "The changelings decided to carry out their plain when they reached Big Mac's hill.

When they were nearly at the top, they played their tricks."

Changelings: "Ready, steady, go!"

Narrator: "And they jerked at a rope, which broke."

(Rope breaks)

Changelings: "We're making your wish come true, Tank!

Follow the leader!"

Narrator: "Yelled the changelings. Tank was still in a state of shock, so he didn't know what to think. And he couldn't ask the conductor, he had jumped clear."

Changelings: "Faster, faster! As fast as you want!"

Narrator: "Screamed the changelings.

Suddenly, Tank found it fun. But the fun was soon over. A crossing lay ahead, and the gates were closed. Tank couldn't stop."

(Tank crashes through the gates)

"Worst still, Tank now realized he was on the wrong path. There ahead was Big Mac. The signalman changed the path just in time."

Changelings: "On, on! Faster!"

Narrator: "Cried the changelings.

Suddenly, he saw Cranky pulling a long slow load."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh my goodness!"

Tank: "Help! Saved me!"

Narrator: "A quick thinking shunter did, just in time."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What was that?!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Cranky.

The signalman warned the stationmaster at the next station."

Signalman: "There's a runaway coming!"

Stationmaster: "We'll send him into the sidings."

Tank: "Help, help!"

Narrator: "Called Tank again.

Tank saw some buffers."

Tank: "Those'll stop me."

Narrator: "But the path to the buffers wasn't set."

Tank: "Oh, no! I'm back on the main road."

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Dr. Hooves was racing to the rescue."

Dr. Hooves: "I must catch Tank, I must."

Narrator: "Tank sped past Filthy Rich.

More danger lay ahead. Men working on a bridge, but they had been warned about the runaway Tank and his changelings.

They diverted him onto an old path straight into a muddy pool."

(Tank falls into the muddy pool)

Tank: "Stopped at last!"

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves arrived, and when he saw Tank, he could only smile."

Dr. Hooves: "A pond is the only place for a tortoise, I suppose."

Narrator: "That night, Tank spoke to Dr. Hooves."

Tank: "I'm sorry, Mr. Hooves if I caused you any embarrassment."

Dr. Hooves: "That's alright, Tank. So what'd you think of going forwards?"

Tank: "It was fun."

Narrator: "Decided Tank."

Tank: "But from now on I'll be happy to look forward to the future. Busy going backwards, so to speak."

Mr. Potato Head Gets Spooked

Narrator: "The toys were busy clearing their roads of leaves and broken branches.

Rex and Slinky often worked together. One day, Slinky helped Rex to a water fountain.

Rex felt much better after his long drink, but the mutant toys were bored.

Mutant Toys: "Let's break away!"

Narrator: "Their loads were heavy, and the chains old. One snapped!"

Mutant Toys: "Faster! Faster!"

Narrator: "Shouted the mutant toys. A sign read 'Slow steep bends and ravine ahead', but the silly mutant toys never saw it.

Then, it was too late.

Rex arrived at the scene of the disaster. His driver sighed."

Rex's Driver: "This was our fault; we didn't secure them properly. We'll have to get help to pull them up.

Hoity Toity will be very annoyed."

Narrator: "And he was."

Hoity Toity: "You will work in the yards until I can trust you again."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head was delighted with Rex's dilemma."

Mr. Potato Head: "Fancy not securing your mutant toys on a hill. They'll come back to spook you and your special hat. Whoo!"

Slinky: "And who's to say you're not afraid of ghosts?"

Narrator: "Snapped Slinky."

Mr. Potato Head: "Ghosts? Things that go bump in the night? Rubbish."

Slinky: "Well, I'll tell you a story that will make your hat quiver!"

Narrator: "Slinky Said."

Slinky: "A long time ago, a little toy was returning home. It was a misty moonlit night. Suddenly, the toy lost control and plunged over the side into the swamps below.

He was never found again, but many a workmen will tell you that when the moon is full, they have seen the little toy trying to get home, but he never reaches the other side.

So what do you think of that, Potato Head?"

Mr. Potato Head: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Replied Mr. Potato Head."

Slinky: "Never mind him, Rex. He'd be frightened if he really saw a ghost."

Narrator: "This gave Rex's driver an idea."

Rex's Driver: "Let's play a trick on Mr. Potato Head!

Narrator: "The next day, he spoke to Mr. Potato Head's driver and fireman, who agreed.

Mr. Potato Head's Crew: "We'll do it tonight!"

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head had to bring mutant toys to the slate mines, and then bring mutant toys back.

Mr. Potato Head's driver decided, as part of the plan, to cross the old iron bridge."

Mr. Potato head: "Haunted bridge, rubbish"!

Narrator: "Snorted Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "It's as tame as a pet rabbit!"

Narrator: "But all the same, he kept thinking about Slinky's story.

When dusk fell, he was keen to leave."

Mr. Potato Head: "If we don't go now, Woody will take my favorite place it the room."

Mr. Potato Head's Driver: "We have to collect our mutant toys first."

Narrator: "His driver replied.

He could see his plan was working, because Mr. Potato Head was nervous.

When night fell, they set off.

The mists were rising around the old iron bridge.

Mr. Potato Head whistled, and the sound echoed everywhere.

Then, ahead, he saw flickering lights. His driver knew they were only insects that shine brightly at night, but to Mr. Potato Head, they looked like a toy!

Next, his driver secretly threw a rock into the ravine below."

Mr. Potato Head: "It's the ghost! Take me back! Take me back, please!"

Narrator: "When Mr. Potato Head reached the safety of his room, he closed his eyes tightly."

Mr. Potato Head's Driver: "Spooked, are you, Potato Head?"

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Mr. Potato Head: "No, I'm asleep!"

Narrator: "And Mr. Potato Head refused to open his eyes.

He did though, when he thought his driver wasn't looking, just to make sure that he was still there."

Snow

Narrator: "It was wintertime in Equestria. The snow covered fields and paths. All the animals were hard at work, except Pipsqueak."

Spike: "Come on, Pipsqueak, this is no time to have a rest."

Pipsqueak: "I'm stuck."

Narrator: "Moaned Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "And my head's freezing up. Driver's gone for help."

Spike: "Hah!"

Narrator: "Huffed Spike, and went on his way.

Later, Spike had to help clear snow by a tunnel. But it was too deep, and he got stuck. Spike was very cross."

Spike: "Snow is nothing but trouble!"

Narrator: "He moaned. Slinky was close by."

Slinky: "Driver says this winter is as bad as the worse winter of all."

Spike: "How worse?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Slinky: "I'll tell you."

Narrator: "Replied Slinky, and then the slinky dog did."

Slinky: "Woody was working the path to the slate mine in the mountains.

When the snow came, it was difficult to work. They used the snow as a double buffer zone to help stop mutant toys skidding through the ravine.

One day, Woody set off to the mine with some empty mutant toys.

Meanwhile, there was trouble at the mine. The winch that hauls the mutant toys up and down wasn't working properly.

Woody had reached the ravine. High above him were the mine yards."

Woody's Driver: "That snow looks dangerous."

Slinky: "Said his driver."

Woody's Driver: "The sound of your body and the mutant toys could cause an avalanche. I'll set up an emergency cap and see what happens."

Slinky: "Woody watched as the driver prepared it.

Then they ran over the cap." (Boom!) "The bang echoed around the gorge. Nothing happened."

Woody's Driver: "Good."

Slinky: "Said his driver."

Woody's Driver: "All's well. We'll have a cup of cocoa, and then make our way."

Slinky: "But high above them, all was not well. A long line of full mutant toys was about be winched down the slope. They had just started their journey when some empty mutant toys fell down. The winch groaned."

Mutant Toys: "Break it! Snap it!"

Slinky: "Shouted the mutant toys. And they did."

Mutant Toys: "On, on, faster, faster!"

Slinky: "They giggled."

Workman: "The snowbank and buffers will stop them."

Slinky: "Said a workman. But he was wrong. The mutant toys plunged into the ravine.

Woody and his driver heard the noise and looked up."

Woody and his Driver: "Avalanche!"

Slinky: "They cried."

(Avalanche falls on Woody)

Slinky: "When the snow ploomed clear, there was no sign of Woody. He was buried deep inside the high drift blocking the ravine.

And then came the funny part."

Spike: "What's the funny part about an avalanche?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Slinky: "Well...

No one knew that the heat from Woody's body had helped to make an igloo."

Workman #1: "It's a snowball."

Workman #2: "It's a snow house."

Workman #3: "It's a cowboy doll."

Slinky: "They cleared away the ice only to find Woody's driver and fireman drinking cocoa as if nothing had happened."

Spike: "Lucky for him. But it just goes to show you can't trust mutant toys."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Slinky: "Or snow."

Narrator: "Said Slinky. The men had just cleared the snow away from him when Big Macintosh puffed by with his machine."

Big Macintosh: "Hey look out, there's snow about!"

Narrator: "He stopped by the tunnel, and kicked loudly. Then it happened."

Big Macintosh: "Oh no."

(Avalanche falls on Big Macintosh)

Big Macintosh: "Help!"

Narrator: "Cried Big Mac."

Spike: "If Woody survived a snowfall, surely a big proud horse like you can do the same."

Narrator: "Chuckled Spike.

Big Macintosh: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Moaned Big Mac from within, and then fell as silent as the snow."

Slinky & The Boulder

Narrator: "In Ponyville, high up in the mountains was a mysterious boulder. It had stood alone for a long time. But one day, workmen arrived to build a quarry on the land below.

Slinky the Slinky Dog met Spike and Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Where's all this rock coming from?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak asked."

Slinky: "The new quarry."

Narrator: "Replied Slinky."

Slinky: "This mountain rock is good for many things, although it's dangerous up there."

Spike: "Why?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Slinky: "Because of a big boulder. I think it's watching me."

Narrator: "Said Slinky nervously."

Pipsqueak: "How can that be? Boulders don't have eyes."

Slinky: "Well Pipsqueak, there's something strange about this one."

Narrator: "Just then, Shining Armor arrived. He was delivering a new earth pony for the quarry."

Slinky: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Asked Slinky."

Shining Armor: "His called 'Coco Crusoe'. Apparently he helps collect the rock faster."

Narrator: "Replied Shining Armor.

Soon Coco Crusoe was working hard. The men were pleased. But no one bothered to check the boulder.

When it rained, the workmen went away. Slinky gazed up and shivered. Above stood Boulder. Suddenly, a large slab of rock landed on the road. Slinky was shocked. Driver was concerned."

Slinky's Driver: "We best leave til the weather's better. The rain loosens some of this rock."

Slinky: "I think it's Boulder wanting us to go away."

Narrator: "The next day, the sun shone. Coco Crusoe was working harder than ever.

Suddenly, Slinky noticed something."

Slinky: "Boulder's moving!"

Slinky's Driver: "Don't be so daft! It can't."

Narrator: "Said the driver. But it could."

(Boulder falls to the road and rolls towards Slinky)

Slinky: "It's rolling along our road."

Slinky's Driver: "We'll stop here until Boulder passes by."

Narrator: "Said the driver. But Boulder was nowhere to be seen.

Then..."

Slinky's Driver: "Oh no! It's behind us!"

Narrator: "Just then, they saw a small junction. One road when up hill. Boulder thundered past.

Meanwhile, Woody was making his way up to the quarry. Then he saw Boulder."

Woody: "Help!"

Narrator: "Boulder was catching up fast."

Woody: "We must warn the yards!"

Narrator: "Shouted Woody."

Slinky: "Yes, but how?"

Narrator: "Called Slinky.

Boulder rounded a bend, and there ahead was Buzz Lightyear."

Buzz Lightyear: "It's running loose!"

Narrator: "Yelled Buzz. His driver took him back as fast as he could."

Buzz Lightyear: "Hurry!"

(CRASH!)

Buzz Lightyear's Driver: "Better a smash than a squash."

Narrator: "Sighed his driver.

At the yards, Pipsqueak was collecting changelings. Then, he heard Boulder."

Pipsqueak: "Oh no! Heading straight for me!"

Narrator: "Squeaked Pipsqueak."

(CRASH!)

Narrator: "When Hoity Toity inspected the damage, he decided to close the mine. Then he looked at Boulder."

Hoity Toity: "We should have left this part of the town alone."

Narrator: "They moved Boulder to a hill close by the yards. Slinky is sure that one clear night, it is gazing up at the mountains and that its sizes are being carried out by the wind to where it once used to stand proud and silent. I wonder if Slinky is right, don't you?"
