Narrator: "The toons in the Warner Bros. Studio were excited. They were helping to build a new road.

It would take visitors to even more beautiful places on Acme Acres.

King Acorn arrived with important news."

King Acorn: "The grand opening is this afternoon. I want to see the new line from the air. Queen Acorn and I will arrive on Concord Condor."

Narrator: "Just then, Yakko chugged in."

King Acorn: "You're late for the announcement."

Narrator: "Complained King Acorn."

King Acorn: "Really useful toons are never late."

Yakko: "I'm sorry, Sir."

Narrator: "At Concord's nest, there was another problem."

Concord's Animator: "Wing trouble."

Narrator: "Said the Animator."

Concord's animator: "Concord's not going anywhere today."

Narrator: "Queen Acorn was most upset."

Queen Acorn: "But I've been looking forward to the grand opening all week!"

King Acorn: "And I, my dear, will find a solution."

Narrator: "And he did."

Queen Acorn: "Maximillian, you cannot be serious. WE ride in this?"

King Acorn: "The wind direction is perfect. We'll be there in no time."

Narrator: "Soon the hot air balloon rose into the sky.

But Yakko was upset."

Yakko: "All this extra work is going to make me late again!"

Narrator: "The hot air balloon was floating peacefully though the sky.

Queen Acorn was enoying herself."

Queen Acorn: "The new road looks splendid."

Narrator: "She said."

King Acorn: "Thank you, my dear."

Narrator: "Replied King Acorn.

Down the road, the animators were still loading their ladders."

Yakko: "Hurry up, hurry up!"

Narrator: "Yakko puffed."

King Acorn: "If Yakko doesn't hurry,

Narrator: "Sighed King Acorn."

King Acorn: "He'll be late again!"

Narrator: "All the toons were ready for the grand opening."

Bookworm: "Where's Yakko?"

Narrator: "Bookworm asked."

Li'l Sneezer: "He promised to be on time."

Narrator: "Said Li'l Sneezer.

At last, Yakko was on his way.

Then, there was trouble. The balloon's flame suddenly went out. The air in the balloon cooled, and the balloon started to fall."

Concord's Animator: "Hold tight."

Narrator: "The Animator called."

Queen Acorn: "I want to get out!"

Narrator: "Demanded Queen Acorn."

King Acorn: "Not now, dear."

Narrator: "Said King Acorn."

Yakko: "The balloon's going to land in the tree!"

Narrator: "Cried Yakko."

Narrator: "And it came down, right in front of Yakko."

Yakko: "There's King Acorn!"

Queen Acorn: "My crown is ruined!"

Narrator: "Cried Queen Acorn."

King Acorn: "So is mine."

Narrator: "Said King Acorn."

Yakko's Animator: "Don't worry!"

Narrator: "Called Yakko's Animator."

Yakko's Animator: "We'll soon have you down."

King Acorn: "Am I glad to see you, Yakko."

Yakko: "Thank you, Sir."

Narrator: "Before long, King and Queen Acorn were safely on the ground. They followed Yakko and set off at once.

Everyone was waiting as Yakko brought his important passengers to the grand opening.

King Acorn declared the new road open."

King Acorn: "With special thanks to Yakko."

Narrator: "He said."

King Acorn: "For helping us get here."

Narrator: "Everyone cheered."

Bookworm: "Even so, you were still late."

Narrator: "Teased Bookworm."

Yakko: "I know."

Narrator: "Said Yakko."

Yakko: "But because I was late, King Acorn was right on time!"
