Narrator: "Snow came early to Disneyland. It was heavier than usual. Most characters hate snow. Timon and Pumbaa were used to it. Back to back, with a snowplow on their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forwards, patrolling the paths.

Generally, the snow slipped away easily, but sometimes they found deeper drifts.

Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try, when..."

Happy: "Help! Help!"

Pumbaa: "Lorsh sakes, Timon! It's Happy!

Don't worry yourself, Happy! Wait a while, we'll have you out!"

Narrator: "Happy was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The animals were looking glum. They told him Walt Disney was making a decision."

Timon and Pumbaa: "He'll send us away for sure!"

Sneezy: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Sneezy."

Grumpy: "A lot of nonsense about a broken signal box."

Narrator: "Grumbled Grumpy."

Dopey: "That Spiteful Scar, too."

Narrator: "Put in Dopey."

Dopey: "Good riddance, That's what I say."

Happy: "They were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Happy."

Happy: "It isn't fair!"

Narrator: "They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what.

Sneezy decided to talk to Doc about it."

Doc: "What you need,"

Narrator: "Said Doc,"

Doc: "Is a deputation."

Narrator: "He explained what that was.

Sneezy ran back quickly."

Sneezy: "Doc says we need... a, a depot station!"

Grumpy: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Grumpy."

Grumpy: "The question is.."

Happy: "What is a... desperation?"

Narrator: "Asked Happy."

Sneezy: "It's when characters tell Walt Disney something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Sneezy."

Mickey Mouse: "Did you say 'Tell Walt Disney?'"

Narrator: "Asked Mickey thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Grumpy: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Grumpy."

Grumpy: "That Sneezy be our... um... disputation."

Sneezy: "Me?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Sneezy."

Sneezy: "I can't!"

Happy: "Rubbish, Sneezy."

Narrator: "Said Happy."

Happy: "It's easy.

Grumpy: "That's settled, then."

Narrator: "Grumbled Grumpy.

Poor Sneezy wished it wasn't."

Walt Disney: "Hello, Sneezy. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Sneezy jumped."

Sneezy: "Uh, uh, yes Sir, yes Sir, please Sir."

Walt Disney: "You look nervous, Sneezy. What's the matter."

Sneezy: "Please Sir, uh, they've, they've made me a desperation, Sir. Uh, to speak to you, Sir. I don't like it, Sir."

Narrator: "Walt Disney pondered."

Walt Disney: "Do you mean a deputation, Sneezy?"

Sneezy: "Yes, Sir, please, Sir. Uh, it's Timon and Pumbaa. They say, Sir, that if you send them away, Sir, well, they're be killed, Sir. That would be dreadful, Sir. Uh, please, Sir, don't send them away."

Walt Disney: "Thank you, Sneezy. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Walt Disney spoke to the characters."

Walt Disney: "I've had a... a deputation. I understand your feelings and I've given a lot of thought to the matter."

Narrator: "He paused impressively."

Walt Disney: "Timon and Pumbaa, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall each have a new coat."

Narrator: "The friends were surprised."

Timon and Pumbaa: "Thank you, Sir."

Walt Disney: "But your coats will have your names printed on them. We'll have no more mistakes."

Timon and Pumbaa: "Thank you, Sir. Uh, does, does this mean that the both of us..."

Narrator: "Walt Disney smiled."

Walt Disney: "It means..."

Narrator: "But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles."

(All the characters cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The animals were here to stay."
