Narrator: "One dark and misty night, Pipsqueak was getting ready to collect the mail. He was excited."

Pipsqueak: "I'm making my first ever delivery to the castle."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "That sounds scary to me."

Narrator: "But Cranky decided to have some fun with Pipsqueak."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "The Phantom Pony might get you!"

Pipsqueak: "The Phantom Pony? Who's that?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "He's a ghost pony. He puffs around the castle, rattling the paths and blowing his ghostly whistle."

(Cranky whistles)

Spike: "Don't listen to him, Pipsqueak. He's just teasing you. There's no such things as ghosts."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, there is. You'll see, Pipsqueak!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was nervous about what Cranky had said. But he chuffed away to collect the mail.

Pipsqueak was soon puffing toward the castle."

Pipsqueak: "I hope I don't meet the Phantom Pony."

Narrator: "Pipsqueak arrived at the castle. He had to wait at the red signal for the drawbridge to come down.

Pipsqueak's driver unloaded the mail. But Pipsqueak was still thinking about what Cranky had said."

Flash Sentry: "Hello, Pipsqueak."

Pipsqueak: (Gasps) "Oh! Hello, Flash Sentry. I thought you were the Phantom Pony."

Flash Sentry: "Phantom Pony? What's that?"

Pipsqueak: "He's a ghost pony. He puffs around the castle, rattling the paths and blowing his ghostly whistle."

Flash Sentry: (Chuckles) "Oh, there's no such things as ghosts, Pipsqueak. I've never seen one or heard any rattling paths."

Pipsqueak: "Ha! Just wait till I tell Cranky."

Narrator: "Then Cranky arrived. He was delivering coal for the big castle fires."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Have you seen the Phantom Pony yet, Pipsqueak?"

Pipsqueak: "Ha! I don't believe your story, Cranky! Flash says there aren't any ghosts at the castle, and he should know!"

Narrator: "This made Cranky very cross."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "That's where you're wrong. I've seen the Phantom Pony this very night. He's puffing 'round the castle paths."

Flash Sentry: "Really? Were the paths rattling?" (Laughs) "Oh, we don't believe you."

(Owl hoots)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What's that noise then? It sounds just like the ghostly whistle of the Phantom Pony."

Narrator: "It was only an owl hooting."

(Owl hoots)

"But even Flash thought it sounded just like the Phantom Pony."

Flash Sentry: "Let's meet up again, Pipsqueak, as soon as we've done our jobs."

Pipsqueak: "Good idea, Flash."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'll show them."

Flash Sentry: "There's no such things as ghosts. There's no such things as ghosts. There's no such things as ghosts. There's no such things as ghosts. There's no such things as ghosts."

Narrator: "Cranky blew his whistle."

(Cranky whistles and it echos)

Flash Sentry: "Oh, is that... Could it be? No, it isn't! Yikes!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha-ha! Scared you!" (Giggles)

Narrator: "Flash was so scared, he rushed backwards towards the castle. So he didn't see that the drawbridge had gone back up. His driver and fireman had to jump clear."

Flash Sentry: "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!"

Narrator: "Flash had rolled right off the path and fallen into the dry moat."

Flash Sentry: "Well, that wasn't very clever now, was it?"

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Pipsqueak had delivered the mail and was puffing back to meet Flash Sentry at the junction. But Flash wasn't there."

Pipsqueak: "Oh no! Where's Flash? Maybe the Phantom's got him. Oh, I hope that's Flash."

Narrator: "But it wasn't Flash Sentry. It was Cranky Doodle Donkey."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ooooooh! Ooooooh!"

Narrator: "Pipsqueak heard the sound. Pipsqueak was very frightened."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha-ha! Scared you."

Pipsqueak: (Whimpers)

Narrator: "Pipsqueak was so scared, he raced away without paying any attention to the red signal."

Pipsqueak: "Oh!"

Narrator: "Then there was trouble."

Pipsqueak: "Ohh-oh!" (Falls in the dry moat with Flash Sentry) "Oh!"

Flash Sentry: "Hello, Pipsqueak. I see you've found the meeting place."

Narrator: "Cranky wanted to tell Pipsqueak and Flash that it was all a joke."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak? Flash?"

Narrator: "There was so much fog, he couldn't find them anywhere. As he puff around the misty castle grounds alone, Cranky started to get scared. He even started to believe his own story."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Maybe there really is a Phantom Pony." (Gasps) "And maybe it's got Pipsqueak and Flash."

Narrator: "Cranky kept looking for Pipsqueak and Flash. But when the drawbridge came down, it hid them."

Pipsqueak: "I think somebody must be coming."

Flash Sentry: "Maybe we should blow our whistles."

(Pipsqueak and Flash Sentry whistle)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh no! It's the Phantom Pony!"

Narrator: "Cranky was so frightened, he raced off as fast as he could.

Hoity Toity was at the daily. Spike was collecting milk to take to the bakery."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Help! It's the Phantom Pony!"

Hoity Toity: "Cranky, what on earth are you talking about?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pipsqueak and Flash Sentry are missing. The ghost has got them."

Hoity Toity: "Hmm."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity knew there were no such things as ghosts. But he wanted to know where Pipsqueak and Flash Sentry had gone."

Hoity Toity: "Come on then, Cranky. Let's go on a ghost hunt."

Narrator: "As Cranky and Hoity Toity approached the castle, they heard the mysterious whistling. It echo around the castle walls."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "See, sir? It's the Phantom!"

Hoity Toity: "That's not a phantom, Cranky. Raise the drawbridge.

Pipsqueak and Flash Sentry. Why are you two down there?"

Pipsqueak: "The Phantom chased use, sir."

Flash Sentry: "I heard his ghostly whistle."

Pipsqueak: "And I saw him puffing through the fog."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh dear! That wasn't the Phantom. That was me playing a trick on you. I'm sorry."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity was not very happy.

Soon, Bulk Biceps had lifted Pipsqueak and Flash back onto the path"

Hoity Toity: "Cranky, you have caused confusion and delay! You will deliver Pipsqueak's mail every night for a whole month!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, sir. Sorry, sir."

Flash Sentry: (Laughs) "Good luck, Cranky."

Pipsqueak: "I hope the Phantom doesn't get you." (Giggles)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: (Chortles)

(Owl hoots)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh! Wait for me!"

(Owl hoots)
