Transcript

The Deputation

Narrator: "Snow came early to Disneyland. It was heavier than usual. Most Disney Characters hate snow. The Raccoon Twins were used to it. Back to back, with a trailer behind them and a shovel for each of them, 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..."

(Baloo whistles)

Raccoon Twin #2: "Lorsh sakes, Raccoon Twin #1! It's Baloo!

Donna fash yourself, Baloo! Wait a while, we'll have you out!"

Narrator: "Baloo was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The twins were glum. They told him that Mickey Mouse was returning soon."

The Raccoon Twins: "He'll send us back for sure!"

Piglet: "It's a shame!"

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

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

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "That Hopper, too."

Narrator: "Put in Donald."

Donald Duck: "Good riddance! That's what I say."

Baloo: "They were splendid in the snow."

Narrator: "Added Baloo."

Baloo: "It isn't fair!"

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

Piglet decided to talk to Hercules about it."

Hercules: "What you need,"

Narrator: "Said Hercules,"

Hercules: "Is a deputation."

Narrator: "He explained what that was.

Piglet ran back quickly."

Piglet: "Hercules says we need... a, a disputation!"

Sir Ector: "Of course."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "The question is.."

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

Narrator: "Asked Baloo."

Piglet: "It's when Disney Characters tell Mickey Mouse something's wrong."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Jiminy Cricket: "Did you say 'Tell Mickey Mouse?'"

Narrator: "Asked Jiminy thoughtfully.

There was a long silence."

Sir Ector: "I propose,"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "That Piglet be our... um... disputation."

Piglet: "I?"

Narrator: "Squeaked Piglet."

Piglet: "I can't!"

Baloo: "Rubbish, Piglet!"

Narrator: "Said Baloo."

Baloo: "It's easy.

Sir Ector: "That's settled, then."

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector.

Poor Piglet wished it wasn't."

Mickey Mouse: "Hello, Piglet. It's nice to be back."

Narrator: "Piglet jumped."

Piglet: "Uh, uh, yes sir, yes sir, please sir."

Mickey Mouse: "You look nervous, Piglet. What's the matter?"

Piglet: "Please sir, uh, they've made me a desperation, sir. To speak to you, sir. I don't like it, sir."

Narrator: "Mickey pondered."

Mickey Mouse: "Do you mean a deputation, Piglet?"

Piglet: "Yes, sir, please, sir. It's The Raccoon Twins, sir. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be killed, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Uh, please, sir, don't send them away."

Mickey Mouse: "Thank you, Piglet. That will do."

Narrator: "Later, Mickey spoke to the Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "I've had a... deputation. I understand your feelings, but I do not approve of interference."

Narrator: "He paused impressively."

Mickey Mouse: "Raccoon Twins, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall each have some new clothes."

Narrator: "The twins were surprised."

The Raccoon Twins: "Thank you, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "But your clothes will have your names printed on them. We'll have no more mistakes."

The Raccoon Twins: "Thank you, sir. Does this mean that the both of us..."

Narrator: "Mickey smiled."

Mickey Mouse: "It means..."

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

(All the Disney Characters cheer and whistle)

Narrator: "The twins were here to stay."

Pongo Comes to Breakfast

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatians has worked his route for many years, and knows it very well."

Pongo's Driver: "You know just where to stop, Pongo."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "You could almost manage it without me."

Narrator: "Pongo had become conceited. He didn't realize his driver was joking.

Later, he boasted to the others."

Pongo: "Driver says I don't need him now."

Piglet: "Don't be so daft!"

Narrator: "Snorted Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "I'd never go without my driver."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck, earnestly."

Friar Tuck: "I'd be frightened."

Pongo: "Puh!"

Narrator: "Boasted Pongo."

Pongo: "I'm not scared!"

Friar Tuck: "You'd never dare!"

Pongo: "I would then, you'll see."

Narrator: "Next morning, the firelighter came. Pongo drowsed comfortably, and the warmth spread through his body.

Piglet and Friar Tuck were still asleep. Pongo suddenly remembered."

Pongo: "Silly stick-in-the-muds!"

Narrator: "He chuckled."

Pongo: "I'll show them. Driver said I could manage without him. I'll just go out, then I'll stop and WHEESH! That'll make them jump."

Narrator: "Pongo thought he was being clever. Really, he was only moving because a careless cleaner had meddled with his body. He soon found his mistake. He tried to wheesh, but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare look at what was coming next; there was Governor Ratcliffe's house. Governor Ratcliffe was just about to have breakfast."

Pongo: "Horrors!"

Narrator: "Cried Pongo, and shut his eyes."

(CRASH!)

"The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Pongo had collected a bush on his travels. He peered into the room through its leaves. He couldn't speak.

Governor Ratcliffe was furious. The Evil Queen picked up her plate."

The Evil Queen: "You miserable dalmatian!"

Narrator: "She scolded."

The Evil Queen: "Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I shall have to cook some more!"

Narrator: "She banged the door.

More plaster fell. This time, it fell on Pongo. Pongo felt depressed.

Workmen propped up the house with strong poles, and laid a path through the garden.

Meanwhile, the Raccoon Twins arrived."

The Raccoon Twins: "D'n' fess yourself, Pongo, we'll soon have you back on the path!"

Narrator: "They laughed.

The Raccoon Twins, working hard, managed to haul Pongo back to safety. Bits of fencing, a bush, and a broken window frame festuned his front, which was badly twisted. The twins laughed and left him.

Pongo was in disgrace.

There was worse to come."

Mickey Mouse: "You are a very naughty dalmatian!"

Pongo (muffled): "I know, sir. I'm sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Pongo's voice was muffled behind his bush."

Mickey Mouse: "You must go to the workshop and have your front mended, it will be a long job."

Pongo: "Yes, sir."

Mickey Mouse: "Meanwhile, a woman in a fur coat will do your work."

Pongo: "A w-w-woman, sir?"

Narrator: "Pongo spluttered."

Mickey Mouse: "Yes, Pongo. Women always stay in their houses until they are wanted. Women never galavant off to breakfast in governors' houses."

Cruella DeVil

Narrator: "Piglet and Friar Tuck were worried. Pongo's recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Micky Mouse was waiting for them with important news."

Mickey Mouse: "Here,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Is Cruella DeVil, the woman who has come to help while Pongo is... indisposed."

Piglet: "Please, sir,

Narrator: "Asked Piglet."

Piglet: "Will she go, sir, when Pongo comes back, sir?"

Mickey Mouse: "That depends."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable."

Piglet and Grandpa Dave: "Yes, sir. We'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Said the Disney Characters."

Mickey Mouse: "Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want to rest after her journey."

Narrator: "Cruella was hard to please. She shuddered at the shed."

Cruella DeVil: "This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves."

Narrator: "Next, they tried the carriage shed."

Cruella DeVil: "This is better,"

Narrator: "Said Cruella,"

Cruella DeVil: "But whatever is that rubbish?"

Narrator: "The 'rubbish' turned out to be Abigal, Amelia and Jasmine, who were most offended."

Abigal, Amelia and Jasmine: "We won't stay here to be insulted!"

Narrator: "They fumed.

Piglet and Grandpa Dave had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings.

The Disney Characters woke next morning, feeling exhausted. Cruella, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful."

Cruella DeVil: "Oooh! Oooh!"

Narrator: "She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station."

Cruella DeVil: "Look at me,"

Narrator: "She purred to the passengers."

Cruella DeVil: "I'm the latest woman; highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Pongo's bumpy old Abigal and Amelia now."

Narrator: "The passengers waited for Cruella to start, but she didn't.

She saw that a milk churn was about to be handed to her, and was most indignant."

Cruella DeVil: "Do they expect me to carry that?"

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Surely,"

Narrator: "Said her driver,"

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "You can carry one churn."

Cruella DeVil: "I won't!"

Narrator: "Said Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "Piglet can do it! He loves messing about with pirates."

Narrator: "She began to shudder violently."

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said her driver."

Cruella DeVil's Driver: "Come on now, back down!"

Narrator: "Cruella lurched backwards. She was so cross, that she blew a fuse."

Cruella DeVil: "Told you!"

Narrator: "She said, and stopped.

Everyone argued with her, but it was no use."

Cruella DeVil: "It's fitter's order."

Narrator: "She said."

Passengers: "What is?"

Cruella DeVil: "My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week, and examines me carefully. 'Cruella', He says, 'Never, never carry. You're highly sprung, and carrying is bad for your swerves.'

So that's how it is!"

Narrator: "Finished Cruella."

Stationmaster: "Stuff and nonsense!"

Narrator: "Said the stationmaster."

Shunter: "I can't understand."

Narrator: "Said the shunter."

Shunter: "Whatever made Mickey Mouse send us such a feeble..."

Cruella DeVil: "Feeble? Feeble?!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "Let me..."

Passengers: "Stop arguing!"

Narrator: "Grumbled the passengers."

Passengers: "We're late already."

Narrator: "So they took away the churn, and Cruella felt very pleased with herself. She could now enjoy her journey."

Cruella DeVil: "That's a good story."

Narrator: "She chuckled."

Cruella DeVil: "I'll do just what work I choose, and no more!"

Narrator: "But she said it to herself."

Piglet's Predicament

Narrator: "Cruella DeVil's work in the countryside was full of surprises. She was frightened of bulls and cows, and she remained very lazy and stubborn.

One day, Friar Tuck brought Jasmine to the station where Piglet was grumpily arranging."

Friar Tuck: "Hello, Piglet. I see Cruella's left the milk behind again."

Piglet: "I'll have to make a special journey with it, I suppose. Anyone would think I'd nothing to do!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "Tell you what,"

Narrator: "Replied Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "I'll take the milk, you fetch my pirates."

Narrator: "The drivers and stationmaster agreed.

Piglet had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the pirates about."

Piglet: "Hurry along!"

Narrator: "He said.

The pirates grumbled to each other."

Pirates: "This is Friar Tuck's place! Piglet's got no right to poke his head in here and push us around."

Narrator: "They whispered and passed the word.

Pirates: "Pay Piglet out! Pay Piglet out!"

Piglet: "Come along,"

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Piglet: "No nonsense!"

Pirates: "We'll give him nonsense!"

Narrator: "Giggled the pirates.

But they followed so quietly, that Piglet thought they were under control.

Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead;

All Disney Characters stop to pin down brakes."

Piglet: "Peep peep! Brakes, guard, please!"

Narrator: "But before he could check them, the pirates surged forward."

Pirates: "On! On!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Piglet: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "Whistled Piglet.

The man on duty rushed to warn traffic with his red flag, but was too late to switch Piglet to the runaway siding.

Frantically trying to grip the road, Piglet slid into the yard."

Piglet: "Peep peep! Look out!"

(CRASH!)

Narrator: "Piglet's driver and fireman had jumped clear, but Piglet was stranded.

Next day, Mickey Mouse arrived. Friar Tuck and Cruella had helped to clear the wreckage, but Piglet remained on his perch of pirates."

Mickey Mouse: "We must now try,"

Narrator: "Said Mickey,"

Mickey Mouse: "To run the road with Friar Tuck and a woman. You have put us in an awkward predicament, Piglet."

Piglet: "I am sorry, sir."

Narrator: "Said Piglet."

Mickey Mouse: "You can stay there til we are ready. Perhaps it will teach you to be careful with pirates."

Narrator: "Piglet sighed. The pirate groaned beneath his feet. He quite understood about awkward predicaments.

Mickey spoke severely to Cruella, too."

Mickey Mouse: "My Disney Characters work hard. I send lazy Disney Characters away."

Narrator: "Cruella was ashamed."

Mickey Mouse: "However, Friar Tuck says you worked hard after Piglet's accident, so you shall have another chance."

Cruella DeVil: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Cruella."

Cruella DeVil: "I will work hard. Friar Tuck says he'll help me."

Mickey Mouse: "Excellent. What Friar Tuck doesn't know about road problems isn't worth knowing. Our Friar Tuck's an experienced badger."

Narrator: "Next day, Pongo came back, and Piglet was sent to be mended.

Abigal and Amelia were delighted to see Pongo again, and he took them for a run at once.

All are now friends, and Friar Tuck has taught Cruella a great deal. She shooed a cow off the line the other day all by herself. That shows you, doesn't it?"

The Lionsel

Narrator: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum are twins. Each has a hat, a yellow shirt and red pants. Their pirates help them deliver china clay. It is needed for pottery, paint, paper, and many other things.

The twins are now kept busy, taking the pirates for Disney Characters on the main line, and for ships in the harbor.

One morning, they arranged some pirates, and went away for more.

They returned to find them all gone. The twins were most surprised.

Their drivers examined a footprint."

Drivers: "That's a lion."

Narrator: "They said."

Tweedledee: "It's a what-ll?"

Narrator: "Asked Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "A lionsel, I think."

Narrator: "Replied Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "There's a notice about them in our house."

Tweedledee: "Coughs and sneezes spread lionsels."

Tweedledum: "You had a cough in your head yesterday. It's your fault the lionsel came."

Tweedledee: "It isn't!"

Tweedledum: "It is!"

Drivers: "Stop arguing, you two."

Narrator: "Laughed their drivers."

Drivers: "Let's go and rescue our pirates."

Narrator: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum were horrified."

Tweedledee and Tweedledum: "But the lionsel will magic us away, like the pirates!"

Drivers: "He won't magic us."

Narrator: "Replied their drivers."

Drivers: "We'll more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know your twins, so we'll take away your names and numbers, and then this is what we'll do."

Narrator: "Puffing hard, the twins set off on their journey to find the lion.

They were looking forward to playing tricks on him.

Creeping into the yard, they found the lion on a siding with the missing pirates. Tweedledum hid behind, but Tweedledee went boldly alongside.

The lion looked up."

Mufasa: "Do you mind?"

Tweedledee: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said Tweedledee."

Tweedledee: "I do. I want my pirates, please."

Mufasa: "These are mine."

Narrator: "Said the lion."

Mufasa: "Go away!"

Narrator: "Tweedledee pretended to be frightened."

Tweedledee: "You're a big bully."

Narrator: "He whimpered."

Tweedledee: "You'll be sorry!"

Narrator: "He ran back and hid behind the pirates on the other side.

Tweedledum now came forward."

Tweedledum: "Pirate stealer!"

Narrator: "Hissed Tweedledum. He ran away, too. Tweedledee took his place.

This went on and on until the lion's eyes nearly popped out."

Mufasa: "Stop! You're making me giddy!"

Narrator: "The two twins gazed at him."

Mufasa: "Are there two of you?"

Tweedledee and Tweedledum: "Yes, we're twins."

Mufasa: "I might have known it!"

Narrator: "Just then, Hercules bustled up."

Hercules: "Tweedledee and Tweedledum, why are you playing here?"

Tweedledee: "We're not playing!"

Narrator: "Protested Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "We're rescuing our pirates."

Narrator: "Squeaked Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "Even you don't take our pirates without asking, but this lionsel did."

Hercules: "There's no cause to be rude."

Narrator: "Said Hercules severely."

Hercules: "This lion is a lion king."

Narrator: "The twins were abashed."

Tweedledee: "We're sorry, Mr., uh..."

Mufasa: "Never mind."

Narrator: "The lion smiled."

Mufasa: "Call me Mufasa. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the pirates."

Hercules: "That's all right, then."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "Now off you go, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Fetch Mufasa's pirates, then you can take this lot.

There's no real harm in them,"

Narrator: "He said to Mufasa."

Hercules: "But they're maddening at times."

Narrator: "Mufasa chuckled."

Mufasa: "Maddening,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mufasa: "Is the word."

Wrong Road

Narrator: "Pongo's route is important and so is Hercules'. But their paths and bridges are not so strong as those on the main road. Mickey Mouse does not allow the heavier Disney Characters like Sir Ector to walk on them.

But one day, the way Sir Ector was talking, you would have thought Mickey had given this order for quite another reason."

Sir Ector: "It's not fair!"

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Hercules: "What isn't fair?"

Narrator: "Ask Hercules."

Sir Ector: "Letting lions do man work."

Hercules: "Never mind, Sir Ector. I'm sure Mufasa will let you take his pirates sometimes."

Narrator: "Sir Ector spluttered."

Sir Ector: "I won't take Mufasa's dirty pirates! I won't walk on branch roads!"

Hercules: "Why not? It would be a nice change."

Sir Ector: "Mickey Mouse would never approve."

Narrator: "Huffed Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "Branch roads are vulgar!"

Narrator: "Sir Ector puffed away. Hercules chuckled and followed him to the train station.

Every evening the two Disney Characters took two sets of fast flowers from the station. Sir Ector always leaves first with an express for the main road. Hercules follows five minutes later with his flowers for the branch road. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight, there was trouble. A lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Sir Ector to start. The fireman looked back towards the back of the line and saw something green waving."

Sir Ector's Fireman: "Right away, mate!"

Narrator: "He thought the guard had waved his flag. Sir Ector started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the guard all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross.

To make matters worse, by the time Sir Ector had been stopped and brought back, Hercules was already late with his flowers. So now, he set off first.

But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Hercules along the main road. Sir Ector was sent along the branch, and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbor.

Next morning, Tweedledee and Tweedledum peeped into the yard. There were no pirates for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Sir Ector would be much better fun."

Tweedledee: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Asked Tweedledee."

Tweedledum: "Shh!"

Narrator: "Whispered Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "It's Sir Ector."

Tweedledee: "It looks like Sir Ector, but it can't be. Sir Ector never comes on the branch road. He thinks them vulgar."

Narrator: "Sir Ector pretend he hadn't heard."

Tweedledum: If it isn't Sir Ector,"

Narrator: "Said Tweedledum."

Tweedledum: "It's just a pile of old iron."

Tweedledee: "Which we better take to the scrapyard."

Tweedledum: "No Tweedledee. This lot's useless for scrap. We'll take it to the harbor and dumb it in the sea."

Narrator: "Sir Ector was alarmed."

Sir Ector: "I am Sir Ector! Stop! Stop!"

Narrator: "When Mufasa suddenly arrived, Sir Ector thought him the most beautiful site he'd ever seen."

Sir Ector: "Mufasa, my dear lion, save me."

Narrator: "Mufasa quickly sized up the situation and threatened to take away the pirates he brought for Tweedledee and Tweedledum. This made the twins behave at once. Sir Ector thought he was wonderful."

Sir Ector: "Those little demons. How do you do it?"

Mufasa: "Ah, well."

Narrator: "Said Mufasa."

Mufasa: "It's just a knack."

Narrator: "Sir Ector still believes that Mufasa saved his life. But we know the twins were only teasing. Don't we?"

Hercules' Exploit

Narrator: "Tod the Fox was giving some visitors a tour of Disneyland.

It was their last afternoon, and Hercules was preparing to take them to meet Tweedledee and Tweedledum. He found it hard to start the heavy flowers."

Baloo: "Did you see him straining?"

Narrator: "Asked Baloo."

Donald Duck: "Positively painful."

Narrator: "Remarked Donald."

Sir Ector: "Just pathetic!"

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "He should give up and be preserved before it's too late."

Jiminy Cricket: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "Burst out Jiminy."

Jiminy: "You're all jealous. Hercules' better than any of you."

Mufasa: "You're right, Jiminy."

Narrator: "Said Mufasa."

Mufasa: "Hercules' old, but he'll surprise us all."

Hercules: "I've done it! We're off! I've done it! We're off!"

Narrator: "Said Hercules, as he finally puffed out of the station.

Tweedledee and Tweedledum were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they took the party to Wonderland in a trailer special.

Everyone had a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed.

Then, Hercules took the visitors home.

On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffeted Hercules. His sand box failed, and his fireman went in front dropping sand on the road by hand.

Suddenly, Hercules' feet slipped fiercely, and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time."

Hercules' Driver: "One of your shoes broke, Hercules."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Hercules' Driver: "We've taken your other shoe off. Now you're like an old-fashioned man. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight."

Hercules: "I'll try, sir."

Narrator: "Promised Hercules. Hercules puffed and pulled his hardest, but his feet kept slipping and he could not start the heavy flowers. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and guard went along the train making adjustments between the flowers."

Hercules' Driver: "We've loosened the couplings, Hercules. Now you can pick your flowers up one by one, just as you do with pirates."

Hercules: "That'll be much easier."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "Come on!"

Narrator: "He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first flower moving helped to start the second, and the second helped the third."

Hercules: "I've done it! I've done it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Hercules."

Hercules' Driver: "Steady, boy!"

Narrator: "Warned his driver."

Hercules' Driver: "Well done, boy! You've got them! You've got them!"

Narrator: "And he listened happily to Hercules' steady beat as he forged slowly but surely ahead.

At last, battered, weary, but unbeaten, Hercules steamed in. Baloo was waiting for the visitors with the special flowers."

Hercules: "Peep! Peep!"

Narrator: "Mickey Mouse angrily pointed to clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Hercules, his driver and fireman.

Jiminy and Mufasa saw to it that Hercules was left in peace. Sir Ector and Donald remained respectfully silent."

Ghost Pig

Piglet: "And every year on a date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul."

Pongo: "Piglet, what are you talking about?"

Piglet: "The ghost pig. Driver saw it last night."

Pongo and Friar Tuck: "Where?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo and Friar Tuck."

Piglet: "He didn't say. Ooh, it makes my feet wobble to think of it."

Pongo: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're just a silly little piglet. I'm not scared!"

Piglet: "Pongo didn't believe in your ghost."

Narrator: "Said Piglet next morning. His driver laughed."

Piglet's Driver: "Neither do I. It was a pretend ghost on television."

Narrator: "Piglet was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbor.

Piglet knew where he was, even in the dark."

Piglet: "Crowe's farm crossing. We shan't be long now."

Narrator: "He liked running at night. The path hummed and the light showed green. But a broken cartload of lyme lay ahead. Sam the farmer had just gone for help.

(CRASH!)

Piglet broke the cart to smithereens. Lyme flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box.

Piglet's driver explained what had happened."

Signalman: "I'll see to it."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

Signalman: "But you better clean Piglet, or people will think he's a ghost."

Narrator: "Piglet chuckled."

Piglet: "Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scare Pongo. That'll teach him to say I'm a silly little piglet."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck promised to help.

Pongo was getting ready for his evening run."

Friar Tuck: "Piglet's had an accident."

Narrator: "Cried Friar Tuck."

Pongo: "Poor piglet."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Botheration! That means I'll be late."

Friar Tuck: "They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse."

Pongo: "Out with it, Friar Tuck! I can't wait all evening."

Friar Tuck: "I've just seen something."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "It looked like Piglet's ghost. It said it was, was coming here t-t-t-to warn us."

Pongo: "Huh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Friar Tuck. I'll take care of you."

Piglet: "Peep, peep! Pip, pip, pip, peep! Let me in. Let me in."

Narrator: "Wailed Piglet."

Friar Tuck: "No, no. Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim."

Piglet: "I'll chuff, and I'll puff, and I'll break your door in."

Pongo: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pongo."

Pongo: "It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Abigail and Amelia."

Narrator: "It was morning when Pongo returned."

Friar Tuck: "Where have you been?"

Narrator: "Asked Friar Tuck."

Pongo: "Ah, well."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "I knew you'd be sad about Piglet and I, uh, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the goods shed and...

Oh, sorry. Can't stop. Got to see a flower about a dalmatian."

Narrator: "Piglet was not in the worst for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything."

Piglet: "Well, well, well. What do you know about that?"

Friar Tuck: "Anyone would think,"

Narrator: "Chuckled Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "That our Pongo had just seen a ghost."

Woolly Bear

Narrator: "In summer, the gangers cut the long grass along the road, raking it up for heaps to dry in the sun.

At this time of year, Piglet stops where they have been cutting. The men give them to the pirates, and he takes them to the station.

Friar Tuck then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock."

Piglet: "Wheesh!"

Narrator: "Piglet gave a ghostly whistle."

Piglet: "Don't be frightened, Pongo!"

Narrator: "He laughed."

Piglet: "It's only me!"

Pongo: "Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone!"

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "You're like..."

Piglet: "Ugly, indeed! I'm..."

Pongo: "A pink caterpillar with magenta stripes!"

Narrator: "Continued Pongo firmly."

Pongo: "You crawl like one, too."

Piglet: "I don't!"

Pongo: "Who's been late every afternoon this week?"

Piglet: "It's the hay!"

Pongo: "I can't help that."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Time's time, and Mickey Mouse relies on me to keep it! I can't if you crawl about in the hay till' all hours!"

Piglet: "'Pink caterpillar' indeed!"

Narrator: "Fumed Piglet. He set off to collect some hay to take to the harbor."

Piglet: "Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly everyone. Anyway, my stripes ares better than Pongo's spots. Pongo says I'm always late."

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Piglet: "I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Pongo? He can always catch up time further on."

Narrator: "All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early.

Then came trouble."

(CRASH!)

"A crate of treacle was upset all over Piglet.

Piglet was cross.

He was still sticky when he puffed away.

The wind was blowing fiercely."

Piglet's Driver: "Look at that!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed the driver.

The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the road. The line climbed here."

Piglet's Driver: "Take a run at it, Piglet!"

Narrator: "His driver replied.

Piglet gathered speed. but the hay made the road slippery, and his feet wouldn't grip. Time after time, he stalled with spinning feet and had to wait till' the path ahead was cleared before he could start again.

Everyone was waiting. Pongo seethed impatiently."

Pongo: "Ten minutes late! I warned him! Passengers will complain, and Mickey Mouse..."

(Piglet whistles)

Narrator: "Then, they all saw Piglet. They laughed and shouted."

(Passengers laugh)

Piglet: "Sorry I'm late!"

Narrator: "Piglet panted."

Pongo: "Look what's crawled out of the hay!"

Narrator: "Teased Pongo."

Piglet: "What's wrong?"

Narrator: "Asked Piglet."

Pongo: "Talk about hairy caterpillars!"

Narrator: "Puffed Pongo."

Pongo: "It's worth being late to have seen you."

Narrator: "When Piglet came home, his driver showed him what he looked like in a mirror."

Piglet: "Oh, d-d-d-dear! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just like a woolly bear! Please clean me before Friar Tuck comes."

Narrator: "But it was no good. Pongo told Friar Tuck all about it.

Instead of talking about sensible things like 'playing ghosts', Pongo and Friar Tuck made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawl about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Piglet thought they were being really silly indeed."

Pongo and the Missing Christmas Tree

Narrator: "It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected in Disneyland. All the Disney characters were busy with the final preparations. Mickey Mouse wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration.

Mickey was now waiting impatiently for Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "Quickly now,"

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Pongo. Jiminy Cricket can look after Abigail and Amelia until you get back."

Pongo: "Will we be able to sing carols, too?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo."

Mickey Mouse: "We'll see."

Narrator: "Promised Mickey."

Pongo: "It would be nice to sing carols again."

Narrator: "Sighed Pongo, as he set off on his important mission.

Pongo collected the tree safely, but large snowdrifts lay ahead."

Pongo: "I mustn't be late."

Narrator: "He thought."

Pongo: "Mickey is relying on me."

Narrator: "Barking bravely, Pongo tried to move, but he couldn't. There was worse to come!

Poor Pongo was snowed under!

Meanwhile, the other Disney characters waited and waited. They were grumbling about Pongo for being late."

Mickey Mouse: "Silence!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Pongo left the works safely, but snow has brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded."

Narrator: "The Disney characters now felt sorry for Pongo, and cold but confident, the twins set off to the rescue.

Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest."

Pongo: "Help!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "Hush!""

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #1."

Raccoon Twin #1: "I can hear something."

Raccoon Twin #2: "Probably the wind."

Narrator: "Said Raccoon Twin #2."

Pongo: "Help!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "No, listen!"

Narrator: "Insisted Raccoon Twin #1."

Pongo: "Over here!"

Raccoon Twin #1: "Och! It's Pongo! Come on, the poor wee dalmatian must be frozen to the fur in there!"

Narrator: "When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the heavy drifts of snow. Pongo's driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Pongo and the precious Christmas tree were freed from the snowdrift.

Then, they set off once more to finish their long journey.

Mickey Mouse greeted them warmly."

Mickey Mouse: "As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now!"

Narrator: "At the big station, all was soon ready."

Mickey Mouse: "One, two, three!"

Narrator: "Suddenly, like magic, the station was flooded with lights."

Mickey Mouse: "Ladies, gentlemen, and children, I give you three cheers for Pongo the Dalmatian and all his friends who have made this occasion possible!"

Narrator: "Suddenly, there was a strange flapping sound. Piglet and Friar Tuck smiled. They knew who it was.

With landing lights shining brightly, Owl touched down gently in the snow, bringing the greatest surprise of all; Father Christmas! Everyone cheered, and the party began.

Pongo: "It's no fun getting stuck in the snow,"

Narrator: "Whispered Pongo,"

Pongo: "But it was worth it for this party. Happy Christmas, Piglet, Happy Christmas, everyone!"
