  • Animal Roll Call


Spike Gets Tricked

Narrator: "Spike is a dragon who lives in a library in Ponyville. He's a cheeky little dragon, with two small feet, a short, stumpy tail, two short arms, and some green scales.

He's a fussy little dragon, too. Always bringing buffaloes about, ready for the bigger animals to take on long journeys.

And when animals come in, he brings the buffaloes back home so that the animals can go and rest.

Spike thinks no animal works as hard as he does. He loves playing tricks on them, including Big Macintosh, the biggest and proudest horse of all. Spike likes whistling rudely at him."

Spike: "Wake up, lazy bones! Why don't you work hard, like me?"

Narrator: "One day, after taking the buffaloes on a journey, Big Mac arrived back at the siding, very tired. He was just going to sleep when Spike came up in his cheeky way.

Spike: "Wake up, lazy bones, do some hard work for a change!" You can't catch me!"

Narrator: "And off he ran, laughing.

Instead of going to sleep again, Big Mac thought how he could get back at Spike.

One morning, Spike wouldn't wake up. His driver and fireman couldn't make him start. His stamina was low and there was not enough strength. It was nearly time for the express. People were waiting, but the buffaloes weren't ready.

At last, Spike started."

Spike: "Oh, dear, oh, dear!"

Narrator: "He yawned.

He fussed into the station, where Big Mac was waiting."

Big Macintosh: "Hurry up, you."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh."

Spike: "Hurry yourself!"

Narrator: "Replied Spike.

Big Mac began making his plan."

Big Macintosh: "Yes,"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac,"

Big Macintosh: "I will."

Narrator: "And almost before the buffaloes stopped moving, Big Mac reversed quickly and held the first one's hoof."

Big Macintosh: "Get in quickly, please."

Narrator: "He whistled.

Spike usually pushed behind the buffaloes to help them start, but they always let go of him first. This time, Big Mac started so quickly, they forgot to let go of Spike. Big Mac's chance had come."

Big Macintosh: "Come on, come on,"

Narrator: "Puffed Big Mac to the buffaloes.

The line went faster and faster. Too fast for Spike. He wanted to stop, but he couldn't!"

Spike: "Peep, peep! Stop, stop!"

Big Macintosh: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "Laughed Big Mac."

Buffaloes: "You can't get away, you can't get away!"

Narrator: "Laughed the buffaloes.

Poor Spike was going faster than he had ever gone before. He was out of breath, and his feet hurt him, but he had to go on."

Spike: "I shall never be the same again."

Narrator: "He thought sadly."

Spike: "My feet will be quite worn out."

Narrator: "At last, they stopped at a station.

Spike let go, and he felt very silly and exhausted.

Next, he sat on a turntable, thinking of everyone laughing at him.

And then he ran onto a path, out of the way."

Big Mac: "Well, little Spike,"

Narrator: "Chuckled Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "Now you know what hard work means, don't you?"

Narrator: "Poor Spike couldn't answer. He had no breath. He just puffed slowly away to rest, and had a long, long drink.

He went home very slowly, and was careful afterwards never to be cheeky to Big Mac again."

Shining Armor Helps Out

Narrator: "One day, Shining Armor was in the library where he lived with the other animals. They were all bigger than Shining Armor and boasted about it."

Big Macintosh: "The driver won't choose you again."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh."

Big Macintosh: "He wants strong animals like us."

Narrator: "But the driver and fireman felt sorry for Shining Armor."

Driver and Fireman: "Would you like to come out today?"

Shining Armor: "Oh, yes, please!"

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor. So he had his breakfast, gained lots of stamina, and Shining Armor puffed away.

The other animals were very cross at being left behind.

Shining Armor worked hard all day. The buffaloes thought he was very kind and the driver was very pleased."

Shining Armor: "I'm going out again tomorrow."

Narrator: "Shining Armor told the other animals that night."

Shining Armor: "What do you think about that?"

Narrator: "But he didn't hear what they thought, for he was so tired and happy, that he fell asleep at once.

Next morning, Shining Armor woke up to find nothing had changed. Big Mac was still boasting."

Big Macintosh: "You watch me, little Shining Armor, as I rush through with the express. That will be a splendid sight for you.

Good-bye, little Shining Armor. Look out for me this afternoon."

Narrator: "Shining Armor went off to do some arranging.

Shining Armor liked arranging. It was fun playing with changelings. He would come up quietly and give them a push. Then he would stop and the changelings would go bump into each other."

Changelings: "Oh!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Changelings: "Whatever is happening?"

Narrator: "Shining Armor played until there were no more changelings. Then he stopped to rest.

Presently, he heard some grumbling.

Big Mac was very cross. Instead of nice, shining buffaloes, he was taking some changelings."

Big Macintosh: "Changelings, Changelings, Changelings!"

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Big Macintosh: "The shame of it, the shame of it, oh, the shame of it!"

Narrator: "Shining Armor laughed, and went to find some more changelings.

Then there was trouble."

Porter: "Big Mac can't get up the hill."

Narrator: "The porter called to Shining Armor's driver."

Porter: "Will you take Shining Armor and push him, please?"

Narrator: "They found Big Mac halfway up, and very cross. His driver and fireman were talking to him severely."

Big Macintosh's Driver and Fireman: "You're not trying!"

Big Macintosh: "I can't do it!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "The noisy changelings hold a horse back so."

Narrator: "Shining Armor's driver came up."

Shining Armor's Driver: "We've come to push."

Big Macintosh: "No use at all!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Shining Armor's Driver: "You wait and see."

Narrator: "Replied Shining Armor's Driver.

They brought the changelings back to the bottom of the hill."

Shining Armor: "I'm ready!"

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Big Macintosh: "No good."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Macintosh. They pulled and pushed as hard as they could.

Big Macintosh: "I can't do it! I can't do it! I can't do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Big Mac."

Shining Armor: "I will do it, I will do it, I will do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Shining Armor. Shining Armor pushed and puffed, and puffed and pushed as hard as ever he could. And almost before he realized it, Big Mac found himself at the top of the hill."

Big Macintosh: "I've done it, I've done it, I've done it!"

Narrator: "He said proudly. He forgot all about Shining Armor and didn't wait to say 'Thank you'.

Shining Armor was left out of breath and far behind. He ran onto the next station, and there he found that the driver and fireman were very pleased with him. The fireman gave him a nice long drink, and the driver said,"

Driver: "I'll get out my fur tomorrow, and give you a beautiful shade of white. Then you'll be the smartest unicorn in Ponyville."

Discord's Devious Deed

Narrator: "Discord, the new creature, was sulking. The changelings would not stop singing rudely at him.

Soarin was horrified."

Soarin: "Shut up!"

Narrator: "He ordered, and bumped them hard."

Soarin: "I'm sorry our changelings were rude to you, Discord."

Narrator: "Discord was still furious."

Discord: "It's all your fault! You made them laugh at me!"

Filthy Rich: "Nonsense."

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Soarin would never do that. We animals have our differences, but we'd never talk about them to the changelings. That would be dis... dis..."

Big Macintosh: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Disgusting!"

Narrator: "Put in Cranky."

Filthy Rich: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Finished Filthy Rich.

Discord hated Soarin. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan; he was going to tell lies about Soarin.

Next day, he spoke to the changelings."

Discord: "I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday, I laughed and laughed. Soarin told me one about Big Mac. I'll whisper it.

Don't tell Big Mac I told you."

Narrator: "And he snickered away."

Changelings: "Ha ha ha!"

Narrator: "Guffawed the Changelings."

Changelings: "Big Mac will be cross with Soarin when he knows.

Let's tell him and get back at Soarin for bumping us!"

Narrator: "They laughed rudely at the animals as they went by.

Soon, Big Mac, Filthy Rich and Cranky found out why."

Big Macintosh: "Disgraceful!"

Narrator: "Said Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Disgusting!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky."

Filthy Rich: "Despicable!"

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We cannot allow it!"

Narrator: "They consulted together."

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes,"

Narrator: "They said."

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "He did it to us, we'll do it to him, and see how he likes it!"

Narrator: "Soarin was tired out.

The changelings had been cheeky and troublesome.

He wanted a rest in his home.

The three animals barred his way."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Keep out!"

Soarin: "Stop fooling!"

Narrator: "Said Soarin."

Soarin: "I'm tired!"

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "So are we."

Narrator: "Hissed the animals."

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We're tired of you. We like Discord. We don't like you. You tell tales about us to the changelings."

Soarin: "I don't!"

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You do!"

Soarin: "I don't!

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You do!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity came to stop the noise."

Big Macintosh: "Soarin called me a galloping sausage!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Rusty brown scrap iron!"

Narrator: "Put in Cranky."

Filthy Rich: "I'm old square hooves."

Narrator: "Fumed Filthy Rich."

Hoity Toity: "Well, Soarin?"

Narrator: "Soarin considered."

Soarin: "I only wish, sir,"

Narrator: "He said gravely,"

Soarin: "That I'd thought of those names myself. If the wing fits..."

Hoity Toity: "Ahem..."

Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, and Crank Doodle Donkey: "He made changelings laugh at us!"

Narrator: "Accused the animals.

Hoity Toity recovered. He'd been trying not to laugh himself."

Hoity Toity: "Did you, Soarin?"

Soarin: "Certainly not, sir. No pony would be as mean as that!"

Narrator: "Discord lurked up."

Hoity Toity: "Now, Discord, you heard what Soarin said."

Discord: "I can't understand it, sir. To think that Soarin, of all animals... I'm dreadfully grieved, sir, but know nothing."

Hoity Toity: "I see."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity.

Discord squirmed, and hoped he didn't."

Hoity Toity: "I'm sorry, Soarin, but you must go to Shining Armor's station for a while. I know he will be glad to see you."

Soarin: "As you wish, sir."

Narrator: "Soarin trundled sadly away, while Discord smirked with triumph."

Pipsqueak's Ghostly Trick

Pipsqueak: "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."

Spike: "Pipsqueak, what are you talking about?"

Pipsqueak: "The ghost pony. Driver saw it last night."

Spike and Braeburn: "Where?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike and Braeburn."

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

Spike: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "You're just a silly little pony. I'm not scared!"

Pipsqueak: "Spike didn't believe in your ghost."

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

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost story."

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

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

Pipsqueak: "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.


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

Pipsqueak's driver explained what had happened"

Signalman: "I'll see to it."

Narrator: "Said the signalman."

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

Narrator: "Pipsqueak chuckled."

Pipsqueak: "Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scare Spike. That'll teach him to say I'm a silly little pony."

Narrator: "Braeburn promised to help.

Spike was getting ready for his evening run."

Braeburn: "Pipsqueak's had an accident."

Narrator: "Cried Braeburn."

Spike: "Poor pony."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

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

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

Spike: "Out with it, Braeburn! I can't wait all evening."

Braeburn: "I've just seen something."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

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

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

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

Narrator: "Wailed Pipsqueak."

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

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

Spike: "Oh dear!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Spike."

Spike: "It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle."

Narrator: "It was morning when Spike returned."

Braeburn: "Where have you been?"

Narrator: "Asked Braeburn."

Spike: "Ah, well."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "I knew you'd be sad about Pipsqueak and I, uh, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the freight shed and...

Oh, sorry. Can't stop. Got to see a pet about a pony."

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

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

Braeburn: "Anyone would think,"

Narrator: "Chuckled Braeburn."

Braeburn: "That our Spike had just seen a ghost."

Spike, Pipsqueak and the Dragon

Narrator: "Spike and Pipsqueak are good friends, but sometimes Pipsqueak teases Spike about being frightened and he doesn't like that at all.

One evening he was dozing happily, but Pipsqueak wanted to talk."

Pipsqueak: "Wake up, Spike. Are you dreaming about the time you thought I was a ghost?"

Spike: "Certainly not. Anyway, I was only pretending to be scared. I knew it was you really."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak went on teasing him."

Pipsqueak: "I hope the guard leaves the light on for you tonight."

Spike: "Why?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Spike: "I quite like the dark."

Pipsqueak: "Oh really?"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I am surprised. I always thought you were afraid of the dark. I wonder why?"

Narrator: "Spike decided to say nothing and went to sleep instead.

Next day, Hoity Toity came to see him."

Hoity Toity: "I would like you to go to the harbour tonight to collect something rather unusual."

Spike: "What sort of something?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Hoity Toity: "Wait and see."

Narrator: "Replied Hoity Toity.

Meanwhile, Pipsqueak was moving some changelings into a siding. Filthy Rich arrived with his goods load. The signalman cleared the path and Pipsqueak waited on the siding until Filthy Rich had steamed by.

Then, there was trouble."

Signalman: "The path is blocked."

Narrator: "Called the signalman."

Signalman: "I can't clear it for Pipsqueak. The workmen will have to clear it in the morning. It's too late now."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Said Pipsqueak's driver."

Pipsqueak's Driver: "I'm sorry, Pipsqueak. But you will have to stay here for the night."

Pipsqueak: "Where are you going?"

Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak's Fireman: "Home for tea."

Narrator: "Replied the fireman. Pipsqueak was speechless.

He watched as the other animals went home. Nighttime came and Pipsqueak began to feel very lonely."

Pipsqueak: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "He murmured."

Pipsqueak: "It's very dark.

OH! OH! What's that?!"

Narrator: "It was only an owl, but Pipsqueak didn't realize this."

Pipsqueak: "Oh, I wish Spike were here too."

Narrator: "He sighed.

Spike was waiting for his mysterious load at the harbour. Suddenly, there is was."

Spike: "Cinders and Ashes!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: "It's a big dragon!"

Spike's Driver: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Laughed his driver."

Spike's Driver: "This dragon is for the carnival tomorrow."

Narrator: "Workmen lifted the dragon onto Spike's wagon and put lights all around it for protection. Then, Spike set off into the misty night.

Pipsqueak was asleep on his siding and had no idea that Spike was approaching him.

Pipsqueak woke up with a start."

Pipsqueak: "Help!"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I'm not going to open my eyes until my driver comes."

Narrator: "Next morning the path was cleared and Pipsqueak puffed back to the junction. Big Macintosh was just about to leave with his buffaloes."

Pipsqueak: "You'll never guess what I saw last night."

Narrator: "Big Mac was in no mood for puzzles."

Big Macintosh: "I'm a busy horse. I don't have time for your games."

Pipsqueak: "I've seen a huge dragon. It was covered in lights."

Narrator: "Big Mac snorted."

Big Macintosh: "You've been in the sun too long. Your head has cracked."

Narrator: "When the other animals heard the news, they laughed too."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look out, Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Chuckled Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Or the dragon may gobble you up!"

Pipsqueak: "No one believes me."

Narrator: "Huffed Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Maybe I did imagine the dragon after all."

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak soon found out that he hadn't."

Pipsqueak: "Help! Save me!"

Narrator: "Cried Pipsqueak."

Spike: "It's alright."

Narrator: "Whistled Spike. And, he explained about the carnival."

Spike: "By the way, how was your night out?"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak decided to tell Spike the truth."

Spike: "Well, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Maybe we do get scared sometimes, but if we're not afraid to tell each other, then that means we're quite brave too."

Trust Spike

Narrator: "Spike the Dragon was feeling bright and cheerful. It was a splendid day."

Spike: "Good morning!"

Narrator: "He whistled to some cows, but the cows didn't reply."

Spike: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "They're busy with their breakfast."

Narrator: "Next, he saw Angel."

Spike: "Hello, Angel. Care for a race today?"

Narrator: "But all Angel could say was,"

Angel: "Ouch! That's another hole in the road."

Spike: "I'm sorry, Angel."

Narrator: "Smiled Spike.

Spike was still in good spirits when Angel arrived at the next station."

Spike: "Bad luck, Angel. Now if you're a dragon, you would run a reliable path."

Angel: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Replied Angel."

Angel: "Ponyville was suppose to deliver tar to mend the pet path two weeks ago. You can't trust thing that runs on normal paths."

Spike: "I run on a normal path. You can trust me, Angel. I see if I can find out what's happened."

Narrator: "And Spike puffed away towards the big station.

Cranky was snorting about in the yard."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It's too bad!"

Narrator: "He grumbled."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak goes to work at the harbor and I do his jobs, here, there and everywhere! Take that!"

Changelings: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "Groaned the changelings."

Changelings: "Just you wait. We'll show you."

Narrator: "Big Macintosh laughed."

Big Macintosh: "I'll tell you what, Cranky. If you pretended to be ill everywhere, you couldn't arrange changelings here, or go to the quarry there, could you?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What a good idea."

Narrator: "Agreed Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look, here comes Spike. I'll start pretending now."

Narrator: "Spike was sorry to see the animals looking miserable."

Spike: "Cheer up."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Spike: "It's a beautiful day."

Big Macintosh: "Yes."

Narrator: "Grumbled Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "But not for Cranky."

Spike: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Big Macintosh: "He's sick."

Narrator: "Replied Big Mac."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, he is. I mean, I am."

Narrator: "Stuttered Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I don't feel well at all."

Spike: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Said Spike kindly."

Spike: "I'll help out if you're ill."

Narrator: "Big Mac and Cranky sniggered quietly to each other.

Some of Cranky's changelings were given to Spike, and he went to the quarry. The changelings were still cross."

Changelings: "We couldn't pay Cranky back for bumping us, so we'll play tricks on Spike instead. One animal is as good as another."

Narrator: "But Spike didn't hear them. He collected all the stone from the quarry and set off back to the junction.

Danger lay ahead."

Changelings: "Now for our plan."

Narrator: "Giggled the changelings."

Changelings: "Go faster, go faster!"

Narrator: "They pushed Spike passed the turn."

Spike's Driver: "Slow down!"

Narrator: "Called Spike's driver. And applied the brakes.


Poor Spike stood dazed and surprised in a muddy pond, as a toad eyed him suspiciously."

Spike: "Bust my scales."

Narrator: "Muttered Spike."

Spike: "The day started so well too."

Narrator: "Soarin pulled away the changelings, and Shining Armor helped Spike back to the junction.

Suddenly, Spike remembered the missing tar. He told Shining Armor all about it."

Shining Armor: "That's strange."

Narrator: "Said Shining Armor."

Shining Armor: "A cart full of tar has been left at my station. That must be it. Driver will make sure it gets to Angel now."

Narrator: "Later, Cranky spoke to Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm sorry about your accident."

Narrator: "He muttered."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "And so is Big Mac We didn't mean to get you into trouble."

Big Macintosh: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Spluttered Big Mac."

Big Macintosh: "A mere misunderstanding, Spike. All's well that ends well."

Narrator: "Just then, Angel arrived. He looked much more cheerful."

Angel: "My path's being mended now."

Spike: "Oh, I am glad."

Narrator: "Replied Spike."

Angel: "Thanks for all you did."

Narrator: "Added Angel."

Angel: "Now I know I can trust a dragon, especially if his name is Spike."

Narrator: "Big Mac and Cranky puffed silently away to the library, but Spike still had company."

Spike: "Well, well."

Narrator: "He sighed."

Spike: "What a day for surprises."

Narrator: "The toad, who was looking forward to a ride home, noisily agreed."

Filthy Rich and the Elephant

Narrator: "Spike the Dragon puffed happily along his line with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle.

Hoity Toity was waiting on the platform. He looked at his watch."

Hoity Toity: "Well done, Spike! You are right on time and really reliable."

Spike: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Whistled Spike."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Oh, right on time and really reliable."

Narrator: "Hummed the fillies.

But the big animals were not feeling cheerful at all."

Filthy Rich: "Where's Pipsqueak?"

Narrator: "Mumbled Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "He's suppose to fetch our buffaloes."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We get no rest."

Narrator: "Complained Cranky.

He edged angrily onto the turntable and spoke rudely to Filthy Rich."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What's the matter, Filthy Rich? There's no rain today. Stop worrying and do some work instead."

Filthy Rich: "I'm not afraid of getting wet anymore."

Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich."

Filthy Rich: "Anyway, you look silly enough to be a clown. You should join the circus."

Pipsqueak: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Whistled Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "So you've heard the news."

Big Macintosh: "What news?"

Pipsqueak: "About the circus."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak, what are you talking about?"

Pipsqueak: "The circus has arrived."

Narrator: "Explained Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I've been arranging special carts. Hoity Toity needs your help too."

Narrator: "The animals soon forgot to be tired and cross. Until it was time for the circus to leave. Then Big Mac and Filthy Rich were cross all over again when Cranky got to pull the carts away.

A little later, Hoity Toity returned."

Hoity Toity: "Come along, Filthy Rich. A tunnel is blocked down the line. You must take some workmen to investigate."

Filthy Rich: "Pushing changelings, pushing changelings."

Narrator: "Grumbled Filthy Rich.

They stopped outside the tunnel. The workmen went inside.

It was very dark and quiet. But not for long."

Workmen: "Help!"

Narrator: "Shouted the workmen. And they ran out."

Workmen: "We started to dig at the block, but it grunted and moved."

Narrator: "One said."

Foreman: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said the foreman."

Workmen: "It's not rubbish. It's big and alive. We're not going in there again."

Foreman: "Right."

Narrator: "Said the foreman."

Foreman: "I'll go with the changelings and Filthy Rich shall push it out."

Filthy Rich: "Weesh!"

Narrator: "Said Filthy Rich unhappily. He had been shut in the tunnel for being afraid of the rain. But this was worse. Something big and alive was inside."

Filthy Rich: "Peep! Peep! I don't want to go in."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "Neither do I."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Filthy Rich's Driver: "But we must clear the path."

Filthy Rich: "Oh dear, oh dear."

Narrator: "Huffed Filthy Rich.

Then there was trouble. The block was indeed alive and very strong. It began to push them backwards. Out of the tunnel came Filthy Rich, then the changelings and last of all a large, cross elephant."

Foreman: "Well I never."

Narrator: "Cried the foreman."

The workmen gave him some cake. He drank three buckets of water. And was just about to drink another, when Filthy Rich kicked dirt."

The Elephant: (Trumpeting)

Narrator: "Cried the elephant. Water went all over Filthy Rich. Poor Filthy Rich.

The elephant and his keeper were soon reunited, but Filthy Rich was most upset."

Filthy Rich: "An elephant pushed me! An elephant hooshed me!"

Narrator: "That night, he told the other animals all about it. Big Mac and Cranky felt sorry for Filthy Rich, but still teased him."

Big Macintosh: "First the rain, then an elephant. Whatever will you be afraid of next?"

Spike: "Never mind, Filthy Rich."

Narrator: "Murmured Spike."

Spike: "I think you are brave today, and really reliable too."

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."

Dr. Hooves the Snow Pony

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves and Soarin are ponies. They deliver goods and passengers when the roads are closed by deep snow.

But Dr. Hooves thinks snow is messy and cold."

Dr. Hooves: "I'm an earth pony."

Narrator: "He chuffed one day."

Dr. Hooves: "I shouldn't have to shiver."

Tank: "Begging your pardon, Mr. Hooves?"

Narrator: "Whispered Tank."

Tank: "But I think snow is splendid."

Dr. Hooves: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Later, Dr. Hooves saw some children building a giant snowman for their winter festival.

Each time, Dr. Hooves passed by the snowman grew bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger."

Tank: "Just an obviation, Mr. Hooves, snow is magical."

Dr. Hooves: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Finally, the snowman was completed.

Dr. Hooves chuffed back to his warm cozy home.

Hoity Toity was waiting for him."

Hoity Toity: "You have to return to the mountain village."

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "Some goods are needed for the festival."

Dr. Hooves: "But all this snow makes my hooves feel chilly."

Hoity Toity: "Really useful animals work hard whatever the weather!"

Narrator: "Soon, Dr. Hooves was loaded and on his way. The snow was cold. It had frozen the points and diverted Dr. Hooves into the station siding."

Dr. Hooves: "Whoa, shiver my body!"

Narrator: "Cried Dr. Hooves. His driver applied the brakes."

Tank: "Is there a problem, Mr. Hooves?"

Dr. Hooves: "Yeah, there is! Whoa!"


Tank: "That could been a little smoother."

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves felt awful. He thought the children would be upset about their snowman.

Dr. Hooves' driver went for help.

Hoity Toity was just leaving his office when he got the call."

Hoity Toity: "Soarin will bring the breakdown crane first thing in the morning."

Narrator: "He said.

Dr. Hooves' driver returned and told him the news."

Dr. Hooves: "I'll be out here all night."

Narrator: "Moaned Dr. Hooves."

Dr. Hooves' Driver: "I'm afraid so."

Narrator: "Luckily, the village inn had a toasty warm room for Dr. Hooves' driver. But Dr. Hooves was getting colder and colder.

His stamina had gone low, and the top of his head was covered in icicles."

Dr. Hooves: "I was right all along. Brr! There's nothing magical about snow. Brr!"

Narrator: "Tank was beginning to think Dr. Hooves might be right."

Tank: "Brr!"

Narrator: "Next morning the children saw the situation."

Girl: "Look."

Narrator: "A little girl shouted."

Girl: "Our snowman has eyes in his tummy."

Boy: "No it doesn't."

Narrator: "Laughed a little boy."

Boy: "It's Dr. Hooves!"

Narrator: "That gave the children an idea.

When Dr. Hooves woke up, he was surrounded by happy children."

Children: "Dr. Hooves's a wonderful snow pony!"

Narrator: "They cried. Dr. Hooves was so relief that suddenly, he didn't feel any cold anymore.

When Soarin arrived with the breakdown crane, Dr. Hooves didn't want to leave. He loved the winter festival so much."

Dr. Hooves: "You were right, Tank."

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves called."

Dr. Hooves: "There are some magical things about snow."

Tank: "P-p-p-perhaps, Mr. Hooves."

Narrator: "Shivered Tank."

Dr. Hooves: "Absolutely!"

Spike Saves the Day (S8)

Narrator: "It was a glorious summer day in Ponyville. Braeburn was collecting milk from the dairy. Cranky was taking passengers to Ponyville Docks. And Spike was taking some workmen to work. They were building a new building. Every day, Spike had to take the workmen there and bring them home again."

Spike: "I can't wait for the grand opening!"

Narrator: "He told Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle excitedly."

Spike: "There's going to be flags and a big band."

Narrator: "On the way to the new building, there was a difficult bend in the path. Spike didn't like it at all. He was worried about the bend. But his good friends, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, were there to help him."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Slow down."

Narrator: "They sang out."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Slow down and puff with care."

Narrator: "So Spike did slow down, and he puffed with care."

Spike: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Spike puffed to Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle."

Spike: "I couldn't have done it without you."

Narrator: "Spike arrived safely at the building. Hoity Toity was waiting for him."

Hoity Toity: "Today, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle are to go for their re-fit."

Narrator: "He told Spike."

Hoity Toity: "You must take them to the workshop straight away."

Spike: "But how will I take the workmen home?"

Narrator: "Asked Spike."

Hoity Toity: "You can use buffaloes instead."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Spike: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Spike. And he puffed away to the workshop.

Spike said goodbye to Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He was sad."

Spike: "I don't know how I'll manage the difficult bend without you."

Narrator: "He told his friends.

The next day, Spike puffed to the yard.

He was still thinking about the difficult bend. Spike went too fast and gave the buffaloes a mighty biff. The buffaloes rolled along the path and bumped into Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Watch what you're doing!"

Narrator: "Cranky snorted."

Spike: "Sorry."

Narrator: "Spike puffed. Spike was missing Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He would never have biffed into them.

Soon Spike was on his way to pick up the workers at the new building."

Spike: "Difficult bend, difficult bend."

Narrator: "He puffed nervously. The difficult bend came nearer and nearer. Spike was supposed to slow down, but he wanted to get past the bend quickly. So Spike went faster and faster. The buffaloes rattled and shook."

Spike: "Soon be over, soon be over."

Narrator: "Spike said to himself.

And soon it was!"


Narrator: "Luckily, no one was hurt. But Spike felt sadder than ever.

Caramel arrived to clear up the mess. Caramel didn't like seeing Spike so unhappy."

Spike: "I can't go around the difficult bend."

Narrator: "Spike wheeshed sadly."

Spike: "I'm not a useful dragon without Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle."

Caramel: "You are a really useful dragon."

Narrator: "Said Caramel."

Caramel: "And a jolly good friend."

Narrator: "And he puffed away.

Spike trundled slowly back to the library. He was very sad. He wanted to be back with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle.

Suddenly, Spike saw a line of changelings rushing towards him. They had come unhooked from Shining Armor."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Spike: The changelings are heading for the new building, and they're going too fast! I must warn the stationmaster!"

Narrator: "So he raced after them.

The changelings clattered along the path. Spike was determined to save the new building. So he dashed after the runaway changelings. Spike went faster and faster. He raced past the changelings, but he was nearly at the difficult bend.

Spike wanted to go fast, but he knew he couldn't."

Spike: "Slow down."

Narrator: "Said Spike to himself."

Spike: "Slow down and puff with care!"

Narrator: "Spike slowed down and puffed very carefully. He made it around the difficult bend, all by himself."

Spike: "I've done it!"

Narrator: "He tooted. But so did the runaway changelings.

Spike puffed as fast as he could. And he raced into the building just in time."

Spike: "Runaway changelings are coming!"

Narrator: "He cried."

Spike: "You must change the points!"

Narrator: "The signalman quickly changed the points. The troublesome changelings hurdled into a siding. They biffed and bashed the buffers! But the station was safe.

The next day, Spike was back with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. They were going to the grand opening of the new building. They chugged along happily together. And when they came to a difficult bend, Spike slowed down and puffed with care. The difficult bend wasn't difficult anymore.

The grand opening was a great success and the new building looked wonderful.

Hoity Toity came to see Spike."

Hoity Toity: "You have saved my new station."

Narrator: "He said."

Hoity Toity: "You are a very brave and useful dragon."

Spike: "Thank you, sir."

Narrator: "Said Spike. He was so proud, it made his scales glow."

Shining Armor the Great

Narrator: "Shining Armor likes the same colors as Spike, and the same foods as Cranky Doodle Donkey. He can pull buffaloes and push changelings. And he often works as a back unicorn. But Shining Armor is old, and not as strong as the other animals. So sometimes, Shining Armor feels left out.

The Duke and Duchess of Maretonia came to visit their new summer house. They came with their own private unicorn called Prince Blueblood. Prince Blueblood is big and white and very fast.

When Prince Blueblood pulled into the town hall, his driver had exciting news for him."

  • Prince Blueblood's Driver: "You have beaten Big Macintosh's record!"

Narrator: "He said."

Prince Blueblood: "Of course."

Narrator: "Boasted Prince Blueblood."

Prince Blueblood: "I'm faster and finer than all the animals in Ponyville put together."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity's animals were very cross."

Big Macintosh: "Prince Blueblood's just a big white show off!"

Narrator: "Sniffed Big Mac. And everyone agreed. Hoity Toity spoke to the animals."

Hoity Toity: "Prince Blueblood will take the Duke and Duchess to their summerhouse. Another animal will take their furniture."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity's animals saw the chance for a race."

Spike, Pipsqueak, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Please, sir?"

Narrator: "Said Spike, Pipsqueak, Big Mac and Cranky all together."

Spike, Pipsqueak, Big Macintosh and Cranky Doodle Donkey: "May I go?"

Hoity Toity: "You all have other work to do."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Shining Armor will take the furniture."

Narrator: "Cranky and Big Mac groaned."

Big Macintosh: "Fancy sending a back unicorn to do an express horse's job."

Narrator: "Sniffed Big Macintosh."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "He'll lose the race and let the whole town down!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky. Spike and Pipsqueak were cross. Shining Armor was their friend."

Spike: "Prince Blueblood has a bigger body."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "But that just means more hot air."

Pipsqueak: "An honest pony can beat a pouty unicorn any day!"

Narrator: "Added Pipsqueak. Shining Armor set off slow and steady."

Shining Armor: "Will do my best, will do my best."

Narrator: "He puffed. Prince Blueblood set off and quickly passed Shining Armor."

Prince Blueblood: "I won already!"

Narrator: "He boasted. And with a whoosh, he was gone.

Shining Armor came to the bottom of a steep hill. The freight was heavy, and he felt very tired. He huffed and he puffed and was soon at the top. He can see Prince Blueblood in the distance and chased him at once. Shining Armor race down the hill.

Prince Blueblood stopped at Dodge City. The Duke and Duchess wanted to buy some tea and cakes from Cherry Jubilee. Shining Armor teetered into view."

Prince Blueblood: "Hurry, old boy!"

Narrator: "Laughed Prince Blueblood."

Prince Blueblood: "Can't have you finishing too far behind me."

Narrator: "Shining Armor wished he could have rest too. But the stationmaster and the porters had heard about the race."

Stationmaster and Porter: "Hooray for Shining Armor!"

Narrator: "They cheered. Shining Armor picked up strength and proudly puffed pass Prince Blueblood.

But then, the Duke and Duchess finished their tea. And Prince Blueblood was off in a flash. He roared passed Shining Armor."

Prince Blueblood: "Fastest and best, fastest and best!"

Narrator: "He boasted. Shining Armor was nearly out of energy. The furniture felt heavier than ever.

Up ahead, Prince Blueblood had to stop. The Duke wanted to take some photographs of the countryside. The Duke set up his camera. Prince Blueblood closed his eyes."

Prince Blueblood: "Nothing to worry about it."

Narrator: "He said lazily.

Big Macintosh was returning to Ponyville Docks. He passed Prince Blueblood and knew Shining Armor must be losing the race."

Big Macintosh: "Shining Armor is a waste of strength."

Narrator: "He sniffed.

But when Big Mac passed Shining Armor and saw how hard he was trying, he felt bad about what he had said."

Big Macintosh: "Well done, Shining Armor!"

Narrator: "He called."

Big Macintosh: "You are a credit to Ponyville!"

Narrator: "Shining Armor was so happy, his body tingled. He found strength never knew he had.

The Duke and Duchess had finished taking photographs and were back on board."

Prince Blueblood's Driver: "Time to go!"

Narrator: "Said Prince Blueblood's driver, and rang the bell. But nothing happened. Prince Blueblood was dreaming of victory. He didn't hear the bell. And he didn't hear Shining Armor puffing pass him. Prince Blueblood's driver rang the bell again.

When Prince Blueblood finally opened his eyes, he could see Shining Armor heading towards the summerhouse."

Shining Armor: "Nearly there, nearly there."

Narrator: "He gasped. Prince Blueblood took off as fast as he could. But as he reached the siding, his driver ordered him to slow down."

Prince Blueblood's Driver: "This is an old path, and you are a heavy unicorn!"

Narrator: "He said."

Prince Blueblood's Driver: "You must go slowly!"

Narrator: "Prince Blueblood had no choice. He had to slow down. And he trundled slowly down the siding. With every step and every stump, he knew he had lost the race.

Shining Armor puffed towards the summerhouse."

Shining Armor: "I've won!"

Narrator: "He gasped."

Shining Armor: "I did it!"

Narrator: "Shining Armor felt like a really useful unicorn."

Shining Armor: "Hooray! I won!"

Narrator: "He cheered loudly. Shining Armor felt like the pride of the town of Ponyville, and he was right."

Cranky Gets a New Coat

Narrator: "All of Hoity Toity's animals like to look clean, bright and shiny. They love being washed down and having their body polished until it gleams.

Cranky was in the workshop being given some new fur. He was beside himself with joy. Cranky thought being given new fur meant he was special. The workmen polished for hour upon hour.

Then, with new fur shining, wig twinkling and blacking black, Cranky returned to the library."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look! Aren't I a beautiful brown?"

Narrator: "He asked the others."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "No wonder Hoity Toity thinks I'm special."

Narrator: "But Pipsqueak was worried. He wasn't being given new fur. And he wasn't all brown."

Pipsqueak: "Does this mean Hoity Toity doesn't think I'm special?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Spike: "Looking splendid is not the same as being really useful."

Narrator: "Said Spike firmly."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "But best of all is being really useful and looking splendid, like me."

Narrator: "Said Cranky cheerfully. Before Spike could say anything else, Cranky closed his eyes and fell happily asleep.

The next morning, all the animals were very busy. Pipsqueak was working at the coal plant. Spike and Rarity were taking passengers up and down the the branch route. Big Macintosh was pulling the express.

Hoity Toity came to see Cranky. He told him to join Pipsqueak at the coal plant at once."

Hoity Toity: "The coal changelings must reach Ponyville Docks before the boat sails. So no dillydallying."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Cranky. And he set off at once.

But Cranky didn't go straight to the coal plant. He decided to go by the canal instead. Then he could see himself in the water for yard after yard after yard."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Magnificent!"

Narrator: "He puffed. Cranky had forgotten what Hoity Toity had said.

At the coal yard, Pipsqueak was working as hard has he could. But he was falling behind. The line of changelings was getting longer and longer, and the yard manager was getting crosser and crosser. Where could Cranky be?

Cranky was still enjoying himself. But there was no one around the share his fun, so he headed for the train station.

But as Cranky arrived at the station, Big Mac and the express buffaloes were leaving. The passengers had gone."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Said Cranky. He was disappointed. And he left the station.

Cranky headed straight for the branch route. Cranky say Spike."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Look at me!"

Narrator: "He puffed."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Don't I look fine?"

Spike: "You should be at work."

Narrator: "Called Spike. But Cranky didn't listen to Spike.

Cranky was enjoying being Cranky.

But Pipsqueak wasn't enjoying being Pipsqueak. He was trying his hardest, but the changelings were being very naughty."

Changelings: (Laugh)

Narrator: "Poor Pipsqueak was almost worn out."

Yard Manager: "What will happen to the order now?"

Narrator: "Cried the yard manager.

When Cranky rolled into the coal plant, it was late in the afternoon. Pipsqueak was cross. So was the yard manager."

Yard Manager: "Too make up for lost time,"

Narrator: "He said."

Yard Manager: "You must take an extra long line of changelings to the docks."

Narrator: "Cranky was delighted. The docks were always bustling with animals and people."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "It's the place to be seen."

Narrator: "He said."

Pipsqueak: "The changelings are being very naughty."

Narrator: "Warned Pipsqueak, but Cranky still wasn't listening.

Cranky puffed along, looking forward to being seen, but the changelings were naughtier than ever. They rocked and rolled and crashed and bashed. Cranky's face was soon covered in soot.

Going downhill, the changelings wiggled and giggled. Cranky had to stop with a jolt. Coal tumbled from the changelings, landing on Cranky. Cranky was cross and biffed the changelings as hard as he could. More coal flew out!

Now Cranky didn't want to be seen. He was as dirty as he had ever been. But on his way to the docks, he kept passing his friends. He passed Rarity,

and Shining Armor,

and Spike. Spike thought the only red thing on Cranky was his face.

Cranky trundled into the docks. He hoped no one would see him. But Big Mac was at the docks with the express buffaloes. He could not believe his eyes. He thought Cranky was the grubbiest, grimiest, dustiest, dirtiest donkey he had ever seen.

Pipsqueak arrived safely with the last of the changelings."

Pipsqueak: "I like your new fur."

Narrator: "He puffed cheekily."

Pipsqueak: "He do look splendid."

Narrator: "Cranky knew he should have listened. He didn't feel splendid anymore. But for the first time all day, Cranky could hear clearly. He could hear the sound of the changelings giggling at him. And, despite feeling foolish, even Cranky had to smile."

Spike to the Rescue

Narrator: "It was busy, bustling day in Ponyville. All over the town, animals were happily working together.

Hoity Toity came to see Spike."

Hoity Toity: "The Quarry has an important order to fill."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "I need an animal that is both useful and reliable."

Spike: "I won't let you down, Sir!"

Narrator: "Whistled Spike proudly."

But when Spike arrived at the quarry, he had a nasty surprise.

Discord: "Oh, it's you."

Narrator: "Oiled Discord."

Discord: "What are you doing here?"

Spike: "I'm here to help Twilight Sparkle."

Narrator: "Puffed Spike proudly."

Discord: "Dragons can't help, not like a draconequus!"

Narrator: "He sniffed."

Spike: "That's not true!

Narrator: "Said Spike crossly, and he began working at once.

But Discord was soon up to his old tricks. First, he pushed Spike under the hopper."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Spluttered Spike. Then, when Spike sighed, Discord sniffed loudly."

Discord: "What's that horrible smell?"

Narrator: "He cried."

Discord: "Oh, it's just a stinky old dragon."

Spike: "How rude!"

Narrator: "Exclaimed Spike."

Discord: "No wonder Hoity Toity is thinking of killing dragons."

Spike: "I don't believe you!"

Narrator: "Puffed Spike, but he was upset.

That night, Spike stayed at the quarry, but he couldn't sleep."

Spike: "What if Discord is right?"

Narrator: "Spike said sadly."

Spike: "What if Hoity Toity kills all of us?"

Narrator: "Spike was worried.

The next day, Cheese Sandwich arrived."

Cheese Sandwich: "Ahoy there, me hearties! Fresh Elixir from Appleloosa!"

Narrator: "After he drank the elixir, Discord started to go faster and faster."

Discord: "Ha ha!"

Narrator: "He chuckled."

Discord: "This new elixir makes my feet tingle!"

Spike: "Gems don't make my feet tingle."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "I wish I could have fresh elixir."

Narrator: "Even Twilight was excited by the new elixir."

Twilight Sparkle: "Oh, my!"

Narrator: "She said.

Spike was feeling left out.

Soon, Discord was showing off."

Discord: "I'm the fastest creature in the world!"

Narrator: "He boasted."

Discord: "Look at me go!"

Narrator: "Suddenly, Discord coughed, then he started to splutter. Black, smelly smoke billowed from him."

Discord: "I feel sick!"

Narrator: "Wailed Discord. Twilight started billowing smoke, too."

Twilight Sparkle: "So do I!"

Narrator: "She groaned. The quarry manager was upset."

Quarry Manager: "It's the new elixir!"

Narrator: "He cried."

Quarry Manager: "Water must have leaked into the tanks!"

Narrator: "Soon, all the other ponies got sick. Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, and even Cheese Sandwich had ground to a halt.

So Hoity Toity called the quarry manager, and the quarry manager came to see Spike."

Quarry Manager: "You are to collect fresh elixir from Sugar Cube Corner."

Spike: "Right away, Sir!"

Narrator: "Whistled Spike, and he ran out of the quarry as fast as he could. At last, he arrived at Sugar Cube Corner."

Spike: "Give me all the fresh elixir you've got!"

Narrator: "Spike cried."

Spike: "This is an emergency!"

Workmen: "We'll soon have you loaded."

Narrator: "Said the Workmen.

Spike was soon given jars filled with elixirs. The jars were very heavy. Spike pushed with all his might. His legs creaked and his feet squeaked, but he kept on going.

Spike trundled all over Ponyville with fresh elixir for everyone.

For Cheese Sandwich...

For Diamond Tiara, and for Silver Spoon.

Spike was feeling very tired, but he still had one more delivery to make.

At the quarry, all work had stopped. Discord was as green as a leaf. Twilight Sparkle was feeling very glum.

Then, they heard a wonderful noise. It was Spike! He walked into the quarry with one final puff."

Spike: "I made it!"

Narrator: "He cried.

Twilight and Discord had all the bad elixir drained out of their systems, and all the good, clean elixir poured in."

Discord: "Marvelous!"

Narrator: "Sighed Discord."

Twilight Sparkle: "Thank you, Spike!"

Narrator: "Purred Twilight.

Soon, the quarry was clattering with the sound of work.

And finally, the important job was done.

Hoity Toity arrived with Pipsqueak."

Hoity Toity: "Well done, Spike!"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "You have saved the day! You are a really useful dragon, and a credit to Ponyville!"

Spike: "Thank you, Sir!"

Narrator: "Said Spike proudly.

And even Discord had to admit that Spike is a very special animal...

...even if he is a dragon."

Spike and the Birthday Picnic

Narrator: "All the animals in Ponyville were very excited. Hoity Toity's mother, Mayor Mare, was coming to the town to celebrate her birthday. The animals chuffed up and down to get ready for the big day.

On the big day, Hoity Toity came to the library."

Hoity Toity: "Spike, I have decided to take my mother on a birthday picnic. I want to show her somewhere special."

Spike: "I can take you to Ponyville Valley, sir."

Narrator: "Tooted Spike quickly."

Hoity Toity: "That is a very good idea, Spike."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity.

Later, Spike puffed proudly into the town hall with Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. He was very excited. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were waiting in their best clothes. The stationmaster loaded the picnic baskets. And the biggest birthday cake Spike had ever seen. Spike smiled, but Mayor Mare wasn't smiling. She looked very stern. She made Spike feel nervous. Just then, Pipsqueak chuffed into the station."

Pipsqueak: "You'll have a wonderful time."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak. Spike stopped feeling nervous. This was going to be the best birthday picnic ever.

Spike whooshed and wheeshed through the countryside. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle clattered and chattered. Everyone was happy.

Finally, they arrived at the beautiful Ponyville Valley. There were woods, and streams, and green fields. Spike was sure Mayor Mare would like this. It was the perfect place for a picnic.

Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare looked at the fields. But they didn't smile. The fields had just been plowed into thick brown mud."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Cried Spike."

Hoity Toity: "We can't picnic here."

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity sternly."

Hoity Toity: "You'll have to have another idea. But hurry up, my mother is getting very hungry."

Narrator: "Spike thought very, very hard, and then he set off.

Spike pumped his legs even harder to get to the other side of the town. He was puffing to the castle."

Spike: "This is my best idea yet."

Narrator: "Chuffed Spike.

At the castle station, Hoity Toity spoke to the stationmaster."

Hoity Toity: "Spike,"

Narrator: "Said Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "The castle is closed for redecoration and repairs. Please have another idea and be quick about it."

Narrator: "So Spike set off from the castle.

He rocked and he rolled. He huffed and he puffed. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were bounced and bumped. Spike went faster and faster. Trying to have another idea. Hoity Toity leaned out."

Hoity Toity: "Enough, Spike!"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "Stop!"

Narrator: "Spike huffed to a halt."

Hoity Toity: "Where are you taking us now?"

Spike: "I don't know."

Narrator: "Peeped Spike sadly."

Spike: "I've run out of ideas."

Hoity Toity: "Then we will have to cancel the birthday picnic."

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "It's too late. Lunchtime has passed and my mother wants to go home."

Narrator: "Spike hoped he have another idea before he got to the town hall.

But as he pulled in, not one idea had dropped into his head. Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare got off, and with a low toot, Spike chuffed sadly back to the library.

When Spike got back to the library, the other animals were waiting. They had heard that Spike's good ideas had gone wrong."

Spike: "Nothing went right."

Narrator: "Moaned Spike sadly."

Pipsqueak: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak cheerfully."

Pipsqueak: "I'm sure Mayor Mare enjoyed the cake."

Spike: "The cake!"

Narrator: "Gasped Spike."

Spike: "I left before they could unloaded. Now Mayor Mare won't be able to have her birthday cake!"

Narrator: "Spike let off a big whoosh of smoke."

Spike: "Maybe if I think hard enough,"

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Another idea will come."

Pipsqueak: "Of course it will."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak. Pipsqueak wanted to whistle cheerfully, but his whistle wasn't working. It was blocked with quarry dust."

Big Macintosh: "Blow harder, Pipsqueak, like this."

Narrator: "Said Big Macintosh. And he blew a long low note."

Rarity: "I find two toots better."

Narrator: "Chirped Rarity, and she gave two high toots."

Filthy Rich: "No, no, no. Slow and strong as always best."

Filthy Rich: "Tooted Filthy Rich."

Spike: "That's it!"

Narrator: "Spike toot-tooted."

Spike: "Our whistles!"

Narrator: "The other animals were puzzled. Spike beamed."

Spike: "I've have another idea!"

Narrator: "Hoity Toity, Princess Celestia and Mayor Mare were sitting sadly in the living room, when the stationmaster rang."

Stationmaster: "You are all to go to the town hall. Spike and the other animals have a special surprise."

Narrator: "When they arrived at the town hall, they could hardly believed their eyes. There were banners, and balloons, and fine food, and the birthday cake. Spike gave one toot. Then one after the other, the animals hooted and tooted. Whistled and blew "Happy Birthday to you". And for the first time all day, Mayor Mare smiled from ear to ear."

Mayor Mare: "This is the best birthday picnic ever!"

Narrator: "Smiled Mayor Mare."

Hoity Toity: "Spike,"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "This is your best idea yet!"

Narrator: "Spike was delighted."

Rarity Knows Best

Narrator: "Ponyville, Equestria has many beautiful sights. There are green fields and hills and many beautiful castles. The ponies of Ponyville love visit them all.

One day, Rarity was dropping visitors at the Crystal Empire. Once upon a time, a queen had lived there."

Rarity: "I'd like to be a queen."

Narrator: "Thought Rarity."

Rarity: "Queens are in charge and tell everybody what to do."

Narrator: "Down the hill at the castle, Braeburn and Pipsqueak arrived. They were to arrange changelings. Pipsqueak had never worked there before."

Pipsqueak: "Ooh, look at the castle."

Narrator: "Peeped Pipsqueak excitedly."

Pipsqueak: "I wonder who used to live there."

"Braeburn: "A king and queen."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Braeburn: "They were ruled Ponyville and told everyone what to do."

Narrator: "And he chuffed towards the changelings. Pipsqueak stared at the castle. He was dreaming of kings and queen."

Braeburn "Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Called Braeburn."

Braeburn: "Come along. We've got a lot to do today."

Rarity: "Waiting for passengers is boring."

Narrator: Huffed Rarity. Then she remembered that Braeburn and Pipsqueak were working near the castle."

Rarity: "It would be much more fun to visit them."

Narrator: "She said.

Braeburn and Pipsqueak were waiting to be coupled up when Rarity chuffed in. She was very excited about the castle."

Rarity: "Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "She whistled."

Rarity: "I've had an idea. Let's play a game."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak looked pleased."

Rarity: "I'll be queen and I'll tell you what to do today."

Narrator: "She said."

Rarity: "It'll be fun."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak liked the idea of having fun. But Braeburn thought Rarity's idea was silly.

Braeburn: "You have to be clever to be a queen."

Narrator: "He said wisely."

Braeburn: "And know the right thing to do."

Rarity: "I always know what to do!"

Narrator: "Huffed Rarity. Braeburn laughed. That made Rarity cross."

Rarity: "I show Braeburn that Queen Rarity knows best!"

Narrator: "She wheeshed. Braeburn was now coupled up to his changelings. Pipsqueak thought his looked like troublesome changelings."

Braeburn: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Said Braeburn."

Braeburn: "I'll be back soon. If you can't manage the changelings, wait for me and I'll tell you what to do."

Narrator: "And Braeburn went slowly away. The changelings started to moan and groan."

Changelings: "No you don't!" (laughing)

Narrator: "They clattered and chattered. Pipsqueak knew they were going to be trouble. Rarity had been watching Pipsqueak."

Rarity: "If I want to be queen, I must tell Pipsqueak what to do."

Narrator: "She thought."

Rarity: "Because I know best."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was shunting the changelings as hard as he could, but they wouldn't move. They were being very difficult. Rarity chuffed to a halt."

Rarity: "Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "She whistled loudly."

Rarity: "I am the queen today. I will tell you what to do."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was worried. Braeburn usually knew best."

Rarity: "Take these changelings along my path."

Narrator: "Said Rarity."

Rarity: "It's faster and they won't complain. Braeburn will be pleased when he sees how quick you are."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak wanted Braeburn to be pleased."

Pipsqueak: "I'll do as you say, Queen Rarity."

Narrator: "He tooted. Rarity was pleased with herself. She watched as Pipsqueak blew a big wheesh of steam, Pipsqueak puffed, and he chuffed, and the changelings sped off.

Rarity led out a wheesh of steam. She did know best.

Suddenly, there was a terrible noise."


Narrator: "As the dust cleared, Rarity saw what had happened. The changelings had run into Twilight Sparkle who was waiting on the path. Luckily, no one was hurt, but her load of stone had spilled all over the paths and one of the changelings had come off the road knocking over a telephone pole."

Twilight Sparkle: "Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Cried Twilight."

Twilight Sparkle: "You're not supposed to be on this path!"

Narrator: "Rarity was shocked. Then there was another crash. It was Braeburn! His hooves had struck the telephone pole and he was derailed.

Rarity knew this was all her fault. But she didn't know what to do. The telephone line was down, so no one could call for help. Twilight couldn't move. She was stuck among-st the changelings. And Pipsqueak couldn't move either."

Rarity: "I'm sorry, Braeburn."

Narrator: "Cried Rarity."

Rarity: "I can't be a queen. I don't know what to do. I don't know best."

Narrator: "Braeburn wheeshed out a big cloud of steam."

Braeburn: "I know what to do."

Narrator: "He cried."

Braeburn: "Rarity, you must go and get help."

Narrator: "Rarity knew Braeburn was right. She steamed off as fast as she could.

Rarity whooshed to a halt to the station. She told the manager what had happened. Quickly, he phoned for help.

Soon, Braeburn had been lifted back up onto the path. He wasn't hurt, but his clothes would need to be repaired.

Rarity chuffed into the shunting yards. Hoity Toity was very cross."

Hoity Toity: "Rarity!"

Narrator: "He boomed."

Hoity Toity: "You have caused confusion and delay. Luckily, Braeburn knew what to do."

Narrator: "He added sternly."

Rarity: "I'm sorry."

Narrator: "Rarity said."

Rarity: "Knowing the right thing to do isn't as easy as I thought."

Narrator: "She chuffed."

Rarity: "In future, I'll leave that job to a king or a queen or to Braeburn."

Pipsqueak and the Carnival

Narrator: "It was a beautiful morning in Ponyville, Equestria. All the animals were very excited. It was the day of Hoity Toity's carnival. Children would be coming from far and wide. There was to be a special visit from the Red Dragon. Pipsqueak was delighted. He thought the Red Dragon was the most exciting thing of all.

Hoity Toity arrived at the library. He had come to give the animals their jobs. Shining Armor wants to pull the carousel, Filthy Rich the roller coaster, Big Macintosh the carnival people, Braeburn the bumper cars, Cranky and Rarity were to pull the ferris wheel."

Hoity Toity: "And Spike,"

Narrator: "Boomed Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "You ought to collect the fireworks and the Red Dragon."

Pipsqueak: "What's my job, sir?"

Narrator: "Asked Pipsqueak hopefully."

Hoity Toity: "You ought to collect food from the yards. You must fill all the cafeterias at the buildings."

Narrator: "Ordered Hoity Toity."

Hoity Toity: "A town can't run without food."

Narrator: "He added."

Hoity Toity: "This is a very important job."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity left and all the animals were excited. All except Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Food?"

Narrator: "He sighed. And he watched his friends leave for their exciting jobs. Pipsqueak felt very left out.

Pipsqueak chuffed sadly over to the yards. This didn't feel like an important job of all.

When Pipsqueak arrived, he could see a long line of changelings."

Pipsqueak: "I wish I was pulling something exciting."

Narrator: "Grumbled Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Not boring old changelings."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak buffered up and pulled out of the depot.

Pipsqueak stopped at a signal by a school. Braeburn puffed past pulling a load of bumper cars. The children in the playground clapped and cheered. Then, Shining Armor chuffed by with the carousel. The children cheered even louder. Pipsqueak thought that Braeburn and Shining Armor were having a wonderful time. Then, an idea flew into his head."

Pipsqueak: "Maybe Braeburn and Shining Armor need some help. Helping my friends is much more important than delivering food."

Narrator: "He wheeshed. So Pipsqueak didn't deliver the food. He left his changelings, and he steamed after his friends as quickly as he could.

Braeburn and Shining Armor stopped at a red signal. Pipsqueak puffed up alongside."

Pipsqueak: "Do you need any help?"

Narrator: "He tooted hopefully."

Braeburn: "No thank you, Pipsqueak."

Narrator: "Puffed Braeburn."

Shining Armor: "We can do it."

Narrator: "Chuffed Shining Armor. Pipsqueak was disappointed.

Further up the path, Pipsqueak saw Rarity and Cranky. They were taking a ferris wheel."

Pipsqueak: "That looks like fun."

Narrator: "Tooted Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "I'm sure they'll need some help."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak caught up with Cranky and Rarity."

Rarity: "This is going to be the biggest wheel ever."

Narrator: "Puffed Rarity. Rarity and Cranky were having a splendid time, but Cranky and Rarity didn't need help either. Pipsqueak was upset.

Then, Pipsqueak saw Big Mac waiting at a junction. Big Mac was taking the carnival people. But he didn't need any help either. Pipsqueak saw Filthy Rich crossing the bridge. Filthy Rich was happily pulling the roller coaster.

Finally, Pipsqueak saw Spike waiting at a signal. He was carrying the fireworks and the Red Dragon."

Pipsqueak: "That looks like the most fun of all."

Narrator: "Gasped Pipsqueak. But even Spike didn't need any help. Pipsqueak was more disappointed than ever.

Then, there was trouble. Pipsqueak had spent so much time trying to help everyone else that he hadn't delivered any food. Pipsqueak saw Cranky. He looked very sad."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "There's no food at the buildings."

Narrator: "He wheeshed."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We've all run out of food."

Pipsqueak: "Bust my hooves!"

Narrator: "Cried ."

Pipsqueak: "If the animals don't get some food, the carnival won't open. All the children will be sad and it's all my fault."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak knew what he had to do. He had to pick up his changelings and deliver the food as quickly as he could.

Pipsqueak wheeshed all over the town delivering food to his friends. Soon everyone's bodies were bubbling and their feet were stomping. The animals were back on track.

Everything was ready just in time.

Pipsqueak finished his last delivery of food and arrived at the carnival as the fireworks began. Rockets soared, the band played and the Red Dragon danced. All the children were delighted."

Pipsqueak: "Hoity Toity was right."

Narrator: "Tooted Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: "Delivering food is a very important job."

Spike and the Birthday Mail

Narrator: "It was the stormy season in Ponyville. All the animals were battling against the bad weather.

Spike was busy taking mail to a far part of Equestria. He really liked going up to High Farm. A little filly named Zipporwhill lived there. Zipporwhill and Spike were good friends.

One day, Spike was on his way to High Farm when Pinkie Pie stopped beside him.

Pinkie Pie was a pink earth pony. She was always pleased to see Spike. She liked him so much that she tried to be just him. So she tried to copy him. She tried to walk the way he did. She even tried to whistle like Spike. It make Spike cross."

Pinkie Pie: "Hello, Spike."

Narrator: "Said Pinkie Pie brightly."

Pinkie Pie: "What are you doing?"

Spike: "It's Zipporwhill's birthday."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "I want to get all her letters up in good time."

Narrator: "Just then, Owlowiscious arrived with a new weather report."

Owlowiscious: "Another storm warning I'm afraid and heavy rain."

Narrator: "Owlowiscious warned Spike not to go up to High Farm."

Owlowiscious: "Heavy rain could cause landslides on that hilly road."

Narrator: "And Owlowiscious flew away. Spike didn't want to let Zipporwhill down."

Spike: "High winds don't bother me."

Narrator: "He said."

Pinkie Pie: "Or me."

Narrator: "Said Pinkie Pie."

Pinkie Pie: "I'll come as your back pony."

Narrator: "But Spike didn't want Pinkie Pie to come."

Spike: "No thank you, Pinkie Pie."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "I can do it on my own."

Narrator: "And Spike walked away. But Pinkie Pie liked Spike very much and she wanted to help. So she walked naughtily after him.

Spike walked up the road to High Farm. The sky grew darker and darker. Soon it was pouring with rain. Spike's feet stumped. It was hard work."

Spike: "Pinkie Pie can't follow me."

Narrator: "He thought."

Spike: "She isn't strong enough."

Narrator: "But Spike was wrong. Pinkie Pie's hooves were stumping right behind him. She whistled cheerfully to Spike. Spike was cross."

Spike: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Soon, Spike came to more paths. One way was the long, but easy way to High Farm. The other way was short, but much harder way. Spike knew the longer way was safer."

Spike: "But I'll take the short way."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Then Pinkie Pie can't follow me. She isn't strong enough."

Narrator: "As the storm raged, Spike walked up the steep path. Spike was almost at High Farm. He was sure Pinkie Pie wasn't behind him now."

Spike: "I won't be seeing anymore of her today."

Narrator: "Thought Spike. Then came trouble. Earth and stones tumbled down the bank and blocked Spike's path."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Narrator: "Said Spike. But he still wanted to delivered Zipporwhill's presents."

Spike: "I'll just have to bash my way through."

Narrator: "Said Spike. He walked up to the landslide. Spike was almost up to feet in mud and stone. He tried to go on."

(Spike groans)

Narrator: "But he couldn't. He tried to back out, but he couldn't. Spike was stuck."

Spike: "I should have listened to Owlowiscious."

Narrator: "He said."

Spike: "Now Zipporwhill won't get her presents on time. I've let her down."

Narrator: "Then, he heard the sound of a pony. It was Pinkie Pie coming up the hill behind him."

Pinkie Pie: "It's meeeeeeeeeeeee!"

Narrator: "She said. Then she saw Spike was stuck. Spike felt silly and very sad."

Pinkie Pie: "I'll go and get help."

Narartor: "Said Pinkie Pie."

Spike: "Wait a minute. Please, will you deliver Zipporwhill's present?"

Narrator: "Pinkie Pie was delighted."

Pinkie Pie: "Of course I can."

Narrator: "She said. Pinkie Pie collected Spike's changelings, and set off to High Farm. Spike waited for Pinkie Pie to come back. He was glad she had followed him after all.

Soon Pinkie Pie came walking back down the path."

Pinkie Pie: "Zipporwhill's mother has telephoned for help. Shining Armor is on his way to pull you out."

Narrator: "Then Spike noticed Pinkie Pie had someone with her. It was Zipporwhill. She had come to thank Spike for getting her birthday presents to her."

Spike: "I couldn't have done it without Pinkie Pie's help."

Narrator: "Said Spike."

Spike: "Now, we can all celebrate your birthday together."

Narrator: "Spike whistled happily, and so did Pinkie Pie."

Hamm in Charge

Narrator: "Hamm is one of the oldest toys in the hills of Ponyville. He knows a lot of things, and sometimes he can be rather grand. He enjoys telling others what to do. And because he is a wise toy, the others do as he tells them.

One morning, Hamm puffed into the transfer yards. Hamm was waiting."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I have to take Doc Top to a meeting with Hoity Toity."

Narrator: "Snorted Cranky. Just then, Doc Top arrived. He was late."

Doc Top: "Hamm,"

Narrator: "Gasped Doc Top."

Doc Top: "There's an important special today. I'd like you to be in charge of it while I'm away."

Hamm: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Chuffed Hamm happily. He liked the idea of being in charge. Now he could tell the others what to do."

Doc Top: "Workmen must be picked up, and taken to the forest."

Narrator: "Doc Top said. Hamm was excited."

Doc Top: "The wagons must be taken to the forest, and filled with logs."

Narrator: "Added Doc Top."

Doc Top: "Then, the heavy load must be delivered back here. Spike is coming to collect it very soon."

Hamm: "I'll find the very best characters."

Narrator: "Puffed Hamm."

Doc Top: "Ask the first characters you see to do the special."

Narrator: "Said Doc Top sternly. Hamm wasn't listening. He was thinking about telling the others what to do."

Doc Top: "The job must be done very quickly."

Narrator: "Cried Doc Top."

Hamm: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Hamm hooted proudly, and he puffed away."

Hamm: "I'm going to have a wonderful time."

Narrator: "He whistled to himself.

Up ahead, Hamm found the Orthros. They were helping workmen to lay a new road."

Hamm: "I'm in charge of a very important special. I need someone to pull a heavy train."

Narrator: "Hamm chuffed."

Saint Bernard: "We can pull the heavy train."

Narrator: "Wheeshed Saint Bernard."

Mutt: "We're very strong."

Narrator: "Whistled Mutt. But Hamm wasn't listening."

Hamm: "I must find the very best characters. You must wait here."

Narrator: "He puffed grandly, and he steamed off.

Next, Hamm found Slinky."

Hamm: "I'm in charge of a very important special. I need someone to pick up workmen."

Narrator: "He puffed importantly. Slinky was very excited."

Slinky: "I can collect the workmen."

Narrator: "He hooted happily. But Hamm wasn't listening."

Hamm: "I must find the very best characters."

Narrator: "He huffed."

Hamm: "Wait here."

Narrator: "Then Hamm found Mr. Potato Head and Rex. They were racing down some twisty roads."

Hamm: "I'm in charge of a very important special. I need a fast character to take a load to Spike at the yards."

Narrator: "Chuffed Hamm importantly."

Mr. Potato Head and Rex: "We can pull loads faster than any other toy."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head and Rex puffed excitedly. But Hamm wasn't listening."

Hamm: "I must find the very best characters."

Narrator: "Hamm steamed snootily."

Narrator: "You must wait here."

Narrator: "So the little toys pulled into a siding. Hamm felt more important than ever.

Then there was trouble. Hamm arrived back at the transfer yards. Spike had already arrived to collect the special."

Spike: "Where's my load?"

Narrator: "Tooted Spike."

Hamm: "Bust my legs!"

Narrator: "Cried Hamm. Hamm had spent so long looking for the very best characters, nothing had been done. Now he was very worried."

Hamm: "Your special isn't ready."

Narrator: "He wheeshed sadly to Spike. Spike was surprised."

Spike: "Can you find characters to start work right away?"

Narrator: "He tooted."

Spike: "Then I can still deliver the special on time."

Narrator: "This time, Hamm was listening, very carefully. He knew where all the characters were waiting."

Hamm: "If I hurry, I can put characters to work right away. Leave it to me, Spike."

Narrator: "He chuffed. And Hamm raced out of the yards.

Hamm steamed over to Mr. Potato Head and Rex."

Hamm: "Can you work on my special?"

Narrator: "He asked."

Rex: "We can pull the wagons along the twisty roads to the forest."

Narrator: "Peeped Rex."

Mr. Potato Head: "Faster than anyone."

Narrator: "Added Mr. Potato Head. This time, Hamm was listening."

Hamm: "Please start straightaway."

Narrator: "He wheeshed. And he raced off to find Slinky.

Slinky was still where Hamm had told him to wait."

Slinky: "I can collect the workmen."

Narrator: "Hooted Slinky."

Slinky: "And take them toward the lumber."

Hamm: "Please, start straightaway."

Narrator: "Hamm huffed.

Finally, Hamm found the Orthros."

Saint Bernard: "We can pull the heavy lumber load to the transfer yards."

Narrator: "Wheeshed Saint Bernard."

Mutt: "We're the strongest."

Narrator: "Whistled Mutt. And they steamed off. Hamm had listened carefully to everyone. Now everyone was working."

Hamm: "The special will be ready for Spike after all."

Narrator: "He huffed.

Later, at the transfer yards, Spike's wagons had been loaded with the lumber. Just then, Cranky returned with Doc Top."

Doc Top: "Well done, Hamm!"

Narrator: "Said Doc Top."

Doc Top: "Did you enjoy being the toy in charge?"

Hamm: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Chuffed Hamm. He felt very happy. He had listened to the other characters, and now he was even wiser."

Woody Storms Through

Narrator: "In the summer, the high hills of Ponyville are Woody's favorite place. There are flowers and forests, and fields full of sheep, and farmers who wave as Woody chuffs by.

But in the winter, it's very different in the hills. There is rain and wind, and sometimes, there are bad storms.

One rainy day, Woody was delivering mutants toys carrying slate. He saw a farmer up ahead by the path."

Farmer: "There's an emergency!"

Narrator: "He shouted."

Farmer: "A big storm is coming. We have to get the sheep down from the hills. We need the toys to help."

Narrator: "Woody wanted to help. So he puffed quickly away to the depot. He had to tell the other toys that there was an emergency.

When Woody arrived at the depot, his friends, Buzz Lightyear and Rex were there. So was Doc Top. Woody told him about the storm."

Doc Top: "First,"

Narrator: "Said Doc Top."

Narrator: "You must collect wagons, and take them to the top of the hill. Then pick up the sheep and bring them safely down the hill to the farmers."

Buzz Lightyear and Rex: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Peeped Buzz and Rex. They couldn't wait to get started. As Woody was being uncoupled from the mutant toys, there was a flash of lightning and a roar of thunder. Woody was scared of the thunder and lightning, but he didn't want to tell his friends. He didn't want to look silly. Buzz and Rex blew their whistles bravely as they puffed off to collect their wagons. Woody tooted his whistle as hard as he could, but it didn't sound very brave at all.

The three little toys arrived at the bottom of the hill with their wagons. Then there was an even louder roar of thunder. Woody's feet wobbled. He was very frightened."

Buzz Lightyear: "Here I go!"

Narrator: "Puffed Buzz, and he bravely chuffed up the hill."

Rex: "I'm coming too!"

Narrator: "Tooted Rex, and he puffed off bravely after his friend. Woody watched his friends disappear into the storm. He didn't feel as brave as the other toys."

Woody: "I'm too scared to go up the hill with them."

Narrator: "Woody puffed quietly. And with a sad puff of steam, Woody reversed down a siding and hid.

Woody waited. He hoped no one would see he wasn't helping.

At last, Buzz and Rex came down the hill. Their wagons were full of sheep. Woody watched the farmers unload the sheep. Then Rex and Buzz puffed back up the hill into the storm. They were being very brave. Woody felt bad. He wanted to help, but he was too scared.

Rex and Buzz Lightyear worked very hard. They puffed up and down the hill, bringing sheep safely to the farmers.

Then there was trouble. Rex and Buzz had puffed up and down so many times, they both ran out of strength."

Buzz Lightyear: "Oh, no!"

Narrator: "Wheeshed Buzz sadly."

Buzz Lightyear: "There are still more sheep up on the hill."

Rex: "What are we going to do?"

Narrator: "Chuffed Rex. Woody looked at his two friends. They were very tired and very sad. Then he looked at the farmers. They were worried about the sheep."

Woody: "If a toy like me is frightened of thunder, the little sheep must be very scared."

Narrator: "Woody chuffed to himself."

Woody: "I wanted to help the sheep, I wanted to help the farmers, and I wanted to help my friends, but I haven't helped any of them. I've let them all down."

Narrator: "He felt terrible. Woody puffed slowly out of his hiding place. Buzz and Rex were pleased to see him."

Rex: "Did you collect lots of sheep?"

Narrator: "Rex asked."

Buzz Lightyear: "We didn't see you."

Narrator: "Puffed Buzz. Wood sadly told them what had happened."

Woody: "I was too scared of the thunder and lightning to go up the hill with you."

Narrator: "He wheeshed."

Woody: "So I hid, and I watched you working. Because of me, there are still sheep on the hill. So now I'm going up to collect them."

Narrator: "He chuffed. There was another flash of lightning and a roar of thunder, but Woody didn't notice. He pumped his legs and puffed off bravely up the hill.

The lightning flashed around Woody, and the thunder roared, but Woody wasn't scared. All he thought about was collecting the sheep and bringing them safely down the hill.

Woody arrived at the top of the hill. The farmer was waiting. He was very pleased to see Woody. The sheep were quickly loaded into the wagons. And Woody set off down the hill. It was very hard work, but Woody didn't give up. He chuffed up and down the hill until he had collected all the sheep. Woody felt very happy."

Woody: "I'm braver than I thought."

Narrator: "He wheeshed. And he puffed proudly down the hill for the last time.

Buzz and Rex were waiting for Woody at the bottom of the hill."

Buzz Lightyear and Rex: "Well done!"

Narrator: "They tooted. They were very happy to see him and proud of their friend."

Woody: "Three cheers for Woody!"

Narrator: "The farmers cheered. Woody smiled."

Woody: "I didn't think I could do it, but I could."

Narrator: "The lightning still flashed and the thunder still roared, but Woody was the happiest toy on Ponyville."

Mr. Potato Head Does it All

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head is a very lively toy. He likes to do important jobs, and he always likes to be busy.

One afternoon, Mr. Potato Head arrived at the wharf. He had to collect wagons of straw."

Mr. Potato Head: "More loads of straw!"

Narrator: "He wheeshed. Mr. Potato Head was fed up."

Spike: "What's the matter?"

Narrator: "Tooted Spike."

Mr. Potato Head: "I've been doing the same job all day long."

Narrator: "Grumbled Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "Collecting silly straw and taking it up to the farms in the hills. I want to do something more exciting."

Narrator: "Just then, Slinky puffed in with wagons of slate. He looked tired."

Slinky: "Hello."

Narrator: "He wheeshed wearily."

Slinky: "I have so many jobs to do today. I'm all puffed out."

Mr. Potato Head: "What sort of jobs?"

Narrator: "Asked Mr. Potato Head."

Slinky: "Next, I have to pick up some sightseers and show them the ruined castle."

Narrator: "Chuffed Slinky."

Mr. Potato Head: "That sounds more exciting than delivering straw."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head tooted."

Mr. Potato Head: "I'll take your passengers for you."

Slinky: "All right."

Narrator: "Slinky whistled."

Slinky: "But only if you have time and can do a good job."

Mr. Potato Head: "I have plenty of time."

Narrator: "Snorted Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "This is an exciting job."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head left his wagons of straw, and he puffed off to pick up the passengers.

Mr. Potato Head had collected Slinky's passengers. And soon he was chuffing cheerfully through the beautiful countryside."

Mr. Potato Head: "Look at the sights. Look at the sights."

Narrator: "His feet stomped along the path. Mr. Potato Head was enjoying his new job. The sightseers were very happy to see all the wonderful sights."

Mr. Potato Head: "This is much more exciting than delivering straw."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head wheeshed happily.

On the way across the lake, the sightseers got out to take some photographs.

Mr. Potato Head had to wait for them. He wished he had something to do to pass the time. Just then, Woody puffed up. He was pulling wagons of logs from the sawmill."

Woody: "Flatten my hat!"

Narrator: "He whooshed."

Woody: "These wagons are heavy. I hope I'm not too late."

Mr. Potato Head: "What is your next job?"

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head asked his friend."

Woody: "I have to collect sheep from the farm."

Narrator: "Puffed Woody."

Woody: "And take them to market."

Mr. Potato Head: "That sounds more exciting than waiting here."

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head tooted."

Mr. Potato Head: "I'll take the sheep to market for you."

Woody: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Steamed Woody."

Woody: "But only if you have the time and can do a good job."

Mr. Potato Head: "I have plenty of time."

Narrator: "Chuffed Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "This is an exciting job."

Narrator: "And he puffed off to collect the sheep. The sightseers were very surprised to be left behind.

At the farm, Mr. Potato Head coupled up to the wagons of sheep."

Mr. Potato Head: "Oh, this is a wonderful job. Listen to that baaing."

Narrator: "He whistled excitedly. Then Mr. Potato Head puffed off to market.

Mr. Potato Head walked through the countryside with his sheep."

Mr. Potato Head: "This is much more exciting than pulling sightseers."

Narrator: "He hooted. Up the path, Hamm was at the water fountain."

Mr. Potato Head: "What are you doing today?"

Narrator: "Puffed Mr. Potato Head."

Hamm: "Doc Top needs me for a very special job."

Narrator: "Wheeshed Hamm grandly."

Mr. Potato Head: "What job?"

Narrator: "Puffed Mr. Potato Head."

Hamm: "I have to collect the carousel from the transfer yards."

Narrator: "Hamm chuffed. Mr. Potato Head's body bubbled."

Mr. Potato Head: "That sounds more exciting than delivering sheep."

Narrator: "He wheeshed."

Mr. Potato Head: "I'll do it for you."

Narrator: "And before Hamm could say anything, Mr. Potato Head raced away to the transfer yards.

Mr. Potato Head arrived at the transfer yards. He was feeling very pleased with himself. He had had such an exciting day. Then he saw Doc Top. He was talking to Slinky and Wood. He was very cross."

Doc Top: "The farmer has just telephoned."

Narrator: "Said Doc Top sternly."

Doc Top: "His straw hasn't been delivered, there are sightseers in his field, and his sheep haven't arrived at market."

Mr. Potato Head: "Bust me arms!"

Narrator: "Mr. Potato Head gasped."

Mr. Potato Head: "I promised my friends I'd do a good job."

Narrator: "He wheeshed."

Mr. Potato Head: "But I haven't."

Narrator: "And now his friends were in trouble."

Mr. Potato Head: "It's all my fault, sir."

Narrator: "Puffed Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "I wanted to do an exciting job. So I asked Slinky and Woody if I could do their jobs, but I didn't finish them probably."

Doc Top: "You haven't done your own job either, Mr. Potato Head."

Narrator: "Said Doc Top sharply. Mr. Potato Head knew he was right."

Mr. Potato Head: "I'll go back and deliver my straw straightaway."

Narrator: "He wheeshed sadly."

Mr. Potato Head: "And this time, I'll finish the job."

Narrator: "At the wharf, Mr. Potato Head coupled up to his wagons. Spike was surprised."

Spike: "I thought you wanted to do something exciting."

Narrator: "He tooted."

Mr. Potato Head: "I did."

Narrator: "Wheeshed Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potaot Head: "Now I want to deliver this straw to the farm. It's a very important job."

Narrator: "And he puffed quickly away.

Mr. Potato Head met Slinky at the lake."

Slinky: "Do you want to help take my sightseers to the forest?"

Narrator: "Hooted Slinky."

Mr. Potato Head: "No, thank you."

Narrator: "Chuffed Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "I'm enjoying doing me own job."

Narrator: "Woody was unloading the sheep at market."

Woody: "Next I have to collect some cows."

Narrator: "He whistled."

Woody: "Do you want to help?"

Mr. Potato Head: "No, thank you."

Narrator: "Chuffed Mr. Potato Head."

Mr. Potato Head: "Delivering my straw is just as exciting."

Narrator: "When Mr. Potato Head arrived at the farm, the farmer was pleased to see him. That made Mr. Potato Head feel very happy. He had finished his job properly, and he had been a really useful toy.
