The Runaway

  • George Carlin: Spike the Dragon was ill. Workmen had tried to make him better, but it was no use."
  • Hoity Toity: "Shining Armor must take you to the works."
  • George Carlin: "Said Hoity Toity. Spike felt very miserable. Then, Hoity Toity spoke to Soarin."
  • Hoity Toity: "I want you to help Pipsqueak and Braeburn while Spike is away."
  • George Carlin: "Soarin was delighted. He already knew Pipsqueak, and soon made friends with Braeburn and Angel. Featherweight the Pegasus gave him a big welcome too."
  • Featherweight: "Take care of Spike's fillies."
  • George Carlin: "He advised."
  • Featherweight: "He's sure to miss them while he's away."
  • George Carlin: "Soarin was very gently with the fillies. Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were very impressed."
  • Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Such nice manners."
  • George Carlin: "They told each other."
  • Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "It really is a pleasure to go out with him."
  • George Carlin: "When Spike came back, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle told him how well Soarin had managed. Spike was so please to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works had left Spike's feet very stiff. It made his feet seem as if they weren't moving, when in fact they were. As a result, he and his fillies often over ran the platform. Spike found this most embarrassing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Spike's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had tied the ropes, and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Filthy Rich's passengers. The fireman had forgotten all about Spike's feet. Spike simmered happily."
  • Spike: "Not long now."
  • George Carlin: "He thought, as he saw Filthy Rich slowly approaching. But then, Spike felt his feet begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The conductor, driver, fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform."
  • Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Stop, stop!"
  • George Carlin: "Shrieked Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. But Spike, with plenty of energy, kept on going. The alarm went off down the road."
  • Signalman: "Stop the runaway!"
  • George Carlin: "There, ready for action, was Owlowiscious the Owl. The inspector had made a plan, and together they took off into the sky. At last, Spike was tiring."
  • Spike: "I need to stop, I need to stop."
  • George Carlin: "He panted wearily. As they neared the next station, Spike saw Owlowiscious land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moment, the inspector jumped on Spike and stopped him. At last, Spike stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relief. Then they thanked Owlowiscious."
  • Owlowiscious: "Thank nothing of it. Glad to be of service anytime."
  • Inspector: "Spike,"
  • George Carlin: "Remarked the inspector."
  • Inspector: "We must never let this happen again."
  • George Carlin: "Wearily, Spike agreed with him."

Wrong Road

  • George Carlin: Spike's route is important and so is Shining Armor's. But their paths and bridges are not so strong as those on the main road. Hoity Toity does not allow the heavier animals like Big Macintosh to walk on them. But one day, the way Big Mac was talking, you would have thought Hoity Toity had given this order for quite another reason."
  • Big Macintosh: "It's not fair!"
  • George Carlin: "Grumbled Big Mac."
  • Shining Armor: "What isn't fair?"
  • George Carlin: "Ask Shining Armor."
  • Big Macintosh: "Letting celebrity ponies do farm horses' work."
  • Shining Armor: "Never mind, Big Mac. I'm sure Fancy Pants will let you take his changelings sometimes."
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac spluttered."
  • Big Macintosh: "I won't take Fancy Pants's dirty changelings! I won't do celebrity pony work!"
  • Shining Armor: "Why not? It would be a nice change."
  • Big Macintosh: "Hoity Toity would never approve."
  • George Carlin: "Huffed Big Mac."
  • Big Macintosh: "Celebrity pony work is vulgar!"
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac puffed away. Shining Armor chuckled and followed him to the train station. Every evening the two stallions took two sets of fast buffaloes from the station. Big Mac always leaves first with an express for the main road. Shining Armor follows five minutes later with his buffaloes for the branch road. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Big Mac to start. The fireman looked back towards the back of the line and saw something green waving."
  • Big Macintosh's Fireman: "Right away, mate!"
  • George Carlin: "He thought the conductor had waved his flag. Big Mac started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the conductor all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Big Mac had been stopped and brought back, Shining Armor was already late with his buffaloes. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Shining Armor along the main road. Big Mac was sent along the branch, and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbor. Next morning, Snips and Snails peeped into the yard. There were no changelings for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Big Mac would be much better fun."
  • Snips: "What's that?"
  • George Carlin: "Asked Snips."
  • Snails: "Shh!"
  • George Carlin: "Whispered Snails."
  • Snails: "It's Big Macintosh."
  • Snips: "It looks like Big Mac, but it can't be. Big Mac never comes on the branch roads. He thinks them vulgar."
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac pretend he hadn't heard."
  • Snails: "If it isn't Big Mac,"
  • George Carlin: "Said Snails."
  • Snails: "It's just a pile of old iron."
  • Snips: "Which we better take to the scrapyard."
  • Snails: "No Snips. This lot's useless for scrap. We'll take it to the harbor and dumb it in the sea."
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac was alarmed."
  • Big Macintosh: "I am Big Mac! Stop! Stop!"
  • George Carlin: "When Fancy Pants suddenly arrived, Big Mac thought him the most beautiful site he'd ever seen."
  • Big Mac: "Fancy Pants, my dear pony, save me."
  • George Carlin: "Fancy Pants quickly sized up the situation and threatened to take away the changelings he brought for Snips and Snails. This made the unicorns behave at once. Big Mac thought Fancy Pants was wonderful."
  • Big Macintosh: "Those little demons. How do you do it?"
  • Fancy Pants: "Ah, well."
  • George Carlin: "Said Fancy Pants."
  • Fancy Pants: "It's just a knack."
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac still believes that Fancy Pants saved his life. But we know the unicorns were only teasing. Don't we?"

Slinky To The Rescue

  • George Carlin: In Springtime, Slinky loves to visit a faraway place. It's full of music. The air smells sweet and Slinky thinks there's no better place to be. One day, Spike was passing by just as Slinky was having a drink."
  • Spike: "Good morning. Your driver looks as little worrid. I wonder why."
  • Slinky: "I don't know."
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky."
  • Slinky: "But I soon will. Excuse me,"
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky."
  • Slinky: "But is there something wrong?"
  • Slinky's Driver: "Yes indeed."
  • George Carlin: "Replied the driver."
  • Slinky's Driver: "They need another pony to help run this special line."
  • Slinky: "A music pony."
  • George Carlin: "Laughed Slinky."
  • Slinky: "Maybe I can find one."
  • George Carlin: "Later, Slinky saw Hondo Flanks and Pipsqueak. Slinky had an idea."
  • Slinky: "Can you help me find another pony?"
  • Hondo Flanks: "Where?"
  • Slinky: "Where you found Dr. Whooves."
  • Hondo Flanks: "You mean in Tartarus?"
  • Slinky: "Yes. I'm looking for a music pony."
  • George Carlin: "And Slinky explained everything."
  • Hondo Flanks: "I'd like to help, but these days it's only creatures that go there."
  • George Carlin: "Then Slinky decided."
  • Slinky: "So that's where I'll go."
  • Hondo Flanks: "Take care."
  • George Carlin: "Slinky told the driver all about the plan. And that night, he came back to the dock."
  • Slinky's Driver: "The manager says he'll make a home for a music pony if you find one."
  • Slinky: "Right."
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky."
  • Slinky: "We'll find one tomorrow."
  • George Carlin: "It took them all of the next day to travel to Tartarus. Darkness fell and the cold wind blew."
  • Slinky: "Oh, what's that?"
  • George Carlin: "But it was only the sounds of the lonely scrapyards. Creatures silent and still lined up and guard."
  • Creatures: "Who are you?"
  • George Carlin: "Slinky plucked up courage."
  • Slinky: "I'm a sheds and sidings inspection toy. Have you any ponies in the sheds?"
  • Creatures: "No. None."
  • George Carlin: "Slinky rallied again."
  • Slinky: "Then what the sidings?"
  • Creatures: "One. We have one."
  • George Carlin: "Slinky grew braver still."
  • Slinky: "Then I'll just go an inspect."
  • George Carlin: "A blue pony with a music note cutie mark stood sad and alone in the shadowy sidings. His driver was next to him keeping him company."
  • Slinky: "Excuse me?"
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky."
  • Slinky: "Do you like music?"
  • George Carlin: "The pony looked startled."
  • Noteworthy: "Yes. Music is beautiful."
  • Slinky: "Then you're soon going to hear lots of it because I'm getting you out of here."
  • George Carlin: "Everyone worked fast. It was difficult to get his body warmed up, but soon it was warm and Noteworthy had plenty of energy. Slinky's engineer agreed to be Noteworthy's fireman. So fall they set, past the bleak and booming lines creatures."
  • Creatures: "Where is he going?"
  • George Carlin: "They hissed."
  • Slinky: "Just down the path."
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky. And the chuffered quickly away."
  • Slinky: "We've done it."
  • George Carlin: "Said Slinky."
  • Slinky: "We're over the border and back in our own town. Mission accomplished."
  • George Carlin: "When Slinky and the pony arrived back in the valley, a big welcome awaited them."
  • Manager: "We shall heal you and give a new coat."
  • George Carlin: "Said the manager. His driver was delighted."
  • Noteworthy's Driver: "You lucky old pony. You've been saved by the music land."
  • Noteworthy: "And my friend, Slinky. I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Slinky."
  • George Carlin: "Now the blue pony is as happy as can be and helps the passengers and visit at music time. His name is Noteworthy, but everyone calls him the music pony."

Spike and Noteworthy

  • George Carlin: Spike the Dragon was feeling very happy. His scales shone in the sun, he was right on time, and all around his route the countryside seemed prettier than ever before."
  • Spike: "Good morning, Pipsqueak."
  • George Carlin: "He whistled."
  • Spike: "My route is the pride of Ponyville. Wouldn't you agree?"
  • Pipsqueak: "Uh, yes Spike, of course, But uh,"
  • Spike: "But what Pipsqueak? Out with it!"
  • Pipsqueak: "Well, there is a pony with a famous route too?"
  • Spike: "Who? Where?"
  • Pipsqueak: "His name is Noteworthy. He's faraway, but Hoity Toity says he might visit us."
  • Spike: "When?"
  • Pipsqueak: "Oh, someday."
  • George Carlin: "And Pipsqueak hurried away. Meanwhile Noteworthy was walking steadily along his route. It isn't very long, and that made him feel a little sad. Later he saw Slinky, the slinky dog who had helped saved Noteworthy from death."
  • Noteworthy: "Everyone's been so kind. But my route is so short and I do miss a good long rung."
  • Slinky: "I think you should tell driver too."
  • George Carlin: "Replied Slinky."
  • Slinky: "I'm sure he'll understand."
  • George Carlin: "Noteworthy soon discovered that indeed he did."
  • Noteworthy's Driver: "Do you know, Noteworthy? I feel just the same way."
  • George Carlin: "That evening, he had exciting news."
  • Noteworthy's Driver: "Just what Noteworthy? Hoity Toity has invited us to visit the other animals in Ponyville. Manager agreed. But it'll be a really long run to get there."
  • Noteworthy: "Oh, thank you."
  • George Carlin: "Sighed Noteworthy. They set off next morning. But now, all the other animals were talking about Noteworthy."
  • Pipsqueak: "He runs a famous route. Did you know that?"
  • George Carlin: "Said Pipsqueak. Spike was feeling a little jealous."
  • Spike: "Huh! It may be famous, but my route is the first in town. Everyone knows that too."
  • George Carlin: "And he huffed away to fetch his cutie mark crusaders."
  • Pipsqueak: "Look!"
  • George Carlin: "Squeaked Pipsqueak."
  • Pipsqueak: "Why have they all come? There's no pony yet."
  • George Carlin: "But Pipsqueak was wrong. The signal dropped, and from faraway a pony whistled."
  • Hondo Flanks: "Here he comes."
  • George Carllin: "Yelled Hondo Flanks. Noteworthy walked proudly through the junction."
  • Shining Armor: "I hope you meet Spike too."
  • George Carlin: "Said Shining Armor."
  • Shining Armor: "You both have routes to be proud of."
  • George Carlin: "Then Noteworthy set off to help Soarin move buffaloes in the yard, and they worked happily together all afternoon. At last, Spike arrived."
  • Spike: "Sorry, can't talk. It's time for my last delivery. Mustn't be late."
  • George Carlin: "He was hardly out of sight when the ponies heard shouting at the station. Moments later came the alarm."
  • Passengers: "Stop all animals!"
  • George Carlin: "The signalman answered the telephone."
  • Signalman: "A special is it? I see."
  • George Carlin: "Spike was impatient."
  • Spike: "Why are we waiting? My passengers are being delayed."
  • Spike's Driver: "Sorry, Spike."
  • Narrator: "Said his driver."
  • Spike's Driver: "We're being shunted to allow another pony to pass."
  • George Carlin: "Soon they heard an unfamiliar sound. There was Noteworthy with his headlamp swang and whistle blowing. He gathered speed and disappeared."
  • Spike: "Well bust my scales!"
  • George Carlin: "Said Spike the Dragon. Next morning, he was still fuming."
  • Spike: "Shunted! And on my own route too! It's a disgrace!"
  • Noteworthy: "I'm sorry."
  • George Carlin: "Said Noteworthy."
  • Noteworthy: "I was a special."
  • Spike: "Why?"
  • Noteworthy: "An important passenger arrived just as you left. He ordered a special load and Soarin let me take it. We had a splendid run, but uh..."
  • Spike: "But,"
  • George Carlin: "Finished Spike."
  • Spike: "It can make an animal nervous not to know the route."
  • Noteworthy: "Exactly."
  • George Carlin: "Said Noteworthy."
  • Noteworthy: "You're such an expert."
  • George Carlin: "Spike felt much better. He couldn't be cross anymore and began telling Noteworthy all about his route."

Big Macintosh Takes A Dip

  • George Carlin: Big Macintosh was resting in a siding. Sometimes he thought,"
  • Big Macintosh: "It's very tiring to be such a large and splendid horse. One does have to keep up appearances so."
  • Filthy Rich: "Peep, peep, peep, peep! Hello, lazybones!"
  • George Carlin: "Whistled Filthy Rich."
  • Big Macintosh: "What cheek!"
  • George Carlin: "Spluttered Big Mac."
  • Big Macintosh: "That Filthy Rich is too big for his hooves. Fancy speaking to me like that. Me, who has never had an accident."
  • Pipsqueak: "Aren't jammed whistles and pulled muscles accidents?"
  • George Carlin: "Asked Pipsqueak innocently."
  • Big Macintosh: "No, indeed. High spirits, might happen to any animal. But to come off the path like Filthy Rich did, well I ask you. Is that right? Is it decent?"
  • George Carlin: "Then it was Filthy Rich's turned to take the express. Big Mac watched him getting ready."
  • Big Macintosh: "Be careful, Filthy Rich. You're not pulling the Flying Kipper now. Mind you keep on the path today."
  • George Carlin: "Filthy Rich went off in a huff, and Big Mac yawned and went to sleep. But not for long."
  • Big Macintosh's Driver: "Wake up, Big Mac."
  • George Carlin: "Said his driver."
  • Big Macintosh's Driver: "A special load's coming and we're to take it."
  • Big Macintosh: "Is it buffaloes or changelings?"
  • Big Macintosh's Driver: "Changelings."
  • George Carlin: "Said his driver."
  • Big Macintosh: "Changelings?"
  • George Carlin: "Said Big Mac."
  • Big Macintosh: "Puh-huh!"
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac's body was slow to start. So Shining Armor helped Big Mac to the turntable to get him facing the right way."
  • Big Macintosh: "I won't go, I won't go!"
  • George Carlin: "Grumbled Big Mac."
  • Shining Armor: "Don't be silly, don't be silly."
  • George Carlin: "Puffed Shining Armor. At last, Big Mac was on the turntable. The movement had shaken his body. It was now moving nicely. Big Mac was cross and didn't care what he did. He waited till the table was half way around."
  • Big Macintosh: "I'll show them, I'll show them!"
  • George Carlin: "He hissed. He moved slowly forward to jam the table, but he couldn't stop himself and slid into a ditch."
  • Big Macintosh: "Oosh!"
  • George Carlin: "He hissed."
  • Big Macintosh: "Get me out, get me out!"
  • Big Macintosh Driver and Fireman: "Not a hope."
  • George Carlin: "Said his driver and fireman."
  • Big Macintosh's Driver and Fireman: "You're stuck you silly great horse. Don't you understand that?"
  • George Carlin: "They telephoned Hoity Toity."
  • Hoity Toity: "So Big Mac didn't want to take the load and ran into a ditch? What's that you say? The special's waiting? Tell Shining Armor to take it, please. And Big Mac? Oh, leave him where he is. We'll get him out later."
  • George Carlin: "On the other side of the ditch, some little boys were chattering."
  • Boys: "Oh, doesn't he look silly? They'll never get him out."
  • George Carlin: "They began to sing."
  • Boys: "Silly Macintosh fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch, fell in a ditch! Silly Macintosh fell in a ditch, all on a Monday morning!"
  • George Carlin: "Big Mac laid in the ditch all day."
  • Big Macintosh: "Oh dear!"
  • George Carlin: "He thought."
  • Big Macintosh: "I shall never get out."
  • George Carlin: "But that evening, they lifted Big Mac, and made a roll of sleepers under his hooves to keep him from the mud. Strong ropes were fastened to his back end, and Cranky and Filthy Rich, pulling hard, managed to bring him to safety. Late that night, Big Mac crawled home, a sadder and wiser horse."
