Transcript

  • (We see the Season 7 intro, and finally the start of The Runaway Elephant)
  • Michael Brandon: The engines on the Island of Sodor were excited. A new park was being built. Everyone was working hard to get the job finished on time. Duncan was feeling impatient.
  • Duncan: Get a move on slow coach.
  • Michael Brandon: He puffed crossly to Rusty.
  • Duncan: You're so slow I finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He boasted to Skarloey. Skarloey was cross. A little later, he met Rusty at the new park station.
  • Skarloey: Duncan thinks he's fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Skarloey steamed.
  • Skarloey: But he's just a bossy boiler.
  • Rusty: Better safe and fast.
  • Michael Brandon: Rusty agreed. Duncan drove into the station. He was all puffed up and pleased with himself.
  • Duncan: I've finished first.
  • Michael Brandon: He wheeshed proudly.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: In that case.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I got another job for you. You are to collect the elephant from the sidings and take it to the park.
  • Duncan: Yes, sir!
  • Michael Brandon: Chuffed Duncan.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: This elephant is very important. You must be very careful.
  • Michael Brandon: When Duncan saw the elephant, he was surprised.
  • Duncan: Why it's only a statue.
  • Michael Brandon: He said.
  • Duncan: This is an easy job.
  • Stationmaster: You must wait for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the stationmaster.
  • Stationmaster: The statue is very heavy.
  • Duncan: Nonsense.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Duncan to his driver.
  • Duncan: I pushed heavier loads than this plenty of time.
  • Duncan's Driver: Let's go, Duncan.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Duncan's Driver: But we must be careful.
  • Michael Brandon: So they left, but without the brakevan. But Duncan wasn't careful. He was impatient.
  • Duncan: We'll show them how fast i can be.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan whistled.
  • Duncan: We'll deliver this statue and i'll still finish first.
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan started to speed up. Soon, Duncan was going as fast as his wheels could carry him. His driver was starting to worry. So he tried to brake. But Duncan was out of control. He was scared. He had never gone this fast. People waved and cars tooted as Duncan sped by. Suddenly, a tractor trundled across Duncan's line.
  • Duncan's Driver: Look out!
  • Michael Brandon: Shouted his driver.
  • Rusty: Slow down, slow down!
  • Michael Brandon: Whistled Rusty.
  • Duncan: I can't!
  • Michael Brandon: Duncan cried as he shot past.
  • Duncan: Whoa!
  • Michael Brandon: Elephant park loomed ahead. Duncan's driver applied the brakes, but it was too late. The statue flew into the air and landed in the lake. Luckily, nobody was hurt. In no time, Sir Topham Hatt arrived. He was cross.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: I told you to be careful. You shouldn't waited for the brakevan.
  • Michael Brandon: He said sternly.
  • Duncan: I'm sorry, Sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Mumbled Duncan. He felt very embarrassed. Duncan was repaired again in time for the grand opening. He was still surprised to see the elephant standing in the lake.
  • Lady Hatt: Everyone loves the elephant in the lake.
  • Michael Brandon: Said Lady Hatt.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Even if it was a mistake.
  • Michael Brandon: Added Sir Topham Hatt.
  • Engines: Hooray for Duncan's mistake!
  • Michael Brandon: Cheered the engines. Duncan blushed and went a deep shade red.
  • (Troublesome Trucks then starts after the story)
  • Children: (singing) The engines always think they are so clever, And so they like to bump the trucks around, They bump them in the sidings, they bump the in the yards. They better beware, they better take care, They better be on their guards. Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game, Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. Diesel thinks he is so very smart, Bumping all the trucks around the yard. He gets them all in line, then bumps them one more time, Now, he thinks that he's in charge. The trucks decide to play another joke, And Diesel's plans will all go up in smoke. He pulls and he pulls until he breaks the chain. On, on, on! He's off the rails again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. The engines all try hard to make this stand, Looking for a way to foil their plans. Nothing seems to work. It's just makes matters worse. Trucks are always on the hand. They find their time until they get their chance when noone is expecting it they pounce. They push and they push until it's all too late. On, on, on! The trucks have won again! Because those Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They push them here, push them there till they go too fast. Then they push them once again laughing while they crash. Troublesome Trucks will get the engines every time. Troublesome Trucks will run the engines off the line. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same. They don't care how big they are to them it's just a game. Those Troublesome Trucks will get them all the same.
  • (Troublesome Trucks giggling)
  • (Following the commercial breaks, Thomas Gets Bumped is the next to start)
  • George Carlin: Every afternoon, Thomas the Tank Engine puffs along his branch line with Annie and Clarabel. First they pass the water mill. Next, they come to a big farm. Then, they can see a bridge with a village nestled either side of it. This is a special place. Whenever children hear Thomas coming along, they stand on the bridge, waving until he is out of sight. One day, Thomas was running late. He had stopped at a red light before the bridge to talk to some new children. Percy the Green Engine was waiting, too.
  • Percy: Hurry up, Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Called Percy when the signal dropped.
  • Percy: If you're late, Sir Topham Hatt might get a new engine to replace you.
  • Thomas: He would never do that!
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas, but he was worried. Next day, Thomas hurried along the line. Just ahead was the goods yard. There, on the platform, was an inspector waving a red flag. Next, Thomas saw some children. They were waving, too.
  • Thomas: Something must be wrong.
  • George Carlin: Thought Thomas.
  • Thomas: This station is for goods, not passengers.
  • Children: Help, Thomas, help! We're glad to see you.
  • George Carlin: Called the children.
  • Children: Please, will you take us home?
  • George Carlin: The stationmaster explained to Thomas' driver that the school bus had broken down, and all the parents would be worried if the children were late. Thomas waited as the children walked down from the bridge. Then he took the children to the next station, where Bertie was waiting to take them home. When Thomas finished his journey, he was very late. He was worried that Sir Topham Hatt might be cross with him.
  • Percy: I warned Thomas.
  • George Carlin: Puffed Percy to James.
  • Percy: He's been late one time too many. He'll be in trouble now.
  • George Carlin: But next morning, when Thomas pick up his passengers, Sir Topham Hatt was nowhere to be seen.
  • Thomas: Thank goodness.
  • George Carlin: Sighed Thomas. Thomas knows every part of his line. Just ahead was a stretch where the hot sun had bent the rails on the track.
  • Thomas' Driver: Careful, Thomas!
  • George Carlin: Called his driver. But it was too late.
  • Thomas' Driver: That's done it!
  • George Carlin: Said his driver.
  • Thomas' Driver: We shan't get any further today!
  • Thomas: But what about my passengers?
  • George Carlin: Asked Thomas.
  • Thomas' Driver: Don't worry, they'll be looked after.
  • George Carlin: Replied his driver. While workmen repaired the line, Thomas had to shunt freight cars in the yard. Bertie came to see him.
  • Bertie: I understand you need my help again.
  • Thomas: Yes, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas sadly.
  • Thomas: I can't run without my rails.
  • George Carlin: Bertie set off to collect Thomas' passengers.
  • Passengers: Hello, Bertie.
  • George Carlin: They said.
  • Passengers: We're glad you're here.
  • George Carlin: Bertie drove along the road that runs by the railway. He stopped at each station along the line. Sometimes he stopped between stations to let people off closer to their homes. Thomas felt miserable.
  • Thomas: I've lost my passengers to Bertie. They'll like him better than me.
  • George Carlin: Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Your branch line is repaired. I'm going to change your timetable so that you and Bertie can work together more.
  • George Carlin: When Thomas reached the station, there, to his relief, were all his passengers.
  • Passengers: Bertie is a good bus, but we missed our train rides with you.
  • George Carlin: They said. Later, Thomas spoke to Bertie.
  • Thomas: Thank you for looking after my passengers.
  • Bertie: That's all right, Thomas. I like to make new friends, but I'm glad to share them with you.
  • Thomas: You're a good friend, indeed.
  • George Carlin: Replied Thomas.
  • Thomas: And always will be.
  • (Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining is the next song to begin)
  • (James' whistle toots)
  • Children: (singing) Life is full of surprises, full of ups and downs And so to have a silver lining, first there must be cloud. Bill and Ben the twins work together all day long. They sometimes disagree how things are done. They get down in the dumps If things they do don't work out just as planned. But if at first you don't succeed then understand. There's no sense in worrying if things start going wrong. Obstacles can all be overcome. But even Bill and Ben both agree that in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. So if you've got a job to do, make sure you do it well. Arguing will get you nowhere fast. When Bill says "Push", and Ben says "Pull", They always get it wrong. But never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined, even when it rains. So don't get too downhearted, as things are bound to change. All you've gotta do is wear a smile and you will find. Your sun will shine. Everybody makes mistakes it happens all the time. You should never lose sight of your goal. Just like Bill and Ben things will work out in the end. If you never lose hope, you're sure to cope and carry on. When you're feeling down it doesn't help to wear a frown. Never lose hope, you're sure to cope and you can carry on. Every cloud is silver-lined to help you on your way. As long as there's hope, it'll help you cope. You must never lose hope, it'll help you on the way.
  • (Once again, after the commercials, Edward's Brass Band is the last story to start)
  • Michael Brandon: Summer is a busy time on the Island of Sodor. Vacationers have so much to see and do. There are trips to the seaside, balloon rides in the country and the brass band playing in the park. One morning, Edward was in a hurry. He didn't even stop to say hello to Stepney. Thomas was pleased to see Edward.
  • Thomas: What's up? Your smile's as broad as your smokebox.
  • Edward: I'm on my way to pick up the brass band.
  • Michael Brandon: Replied Edward.
  • Edward: The concert is tomorrow night.
  • Thomas: Don't crack your smokebox.
  • Michael Brandon: Teased Thomas. Edward couldn't wait to hear the brass band play their wonderful music. He was so excited about meeting the brass band that he didn't notice the giant crane. It was unloading a huge ship's boiler. Suddenly, the crane swung the boiler and knocked Edward right off the track. Cranky had been watching.
  • Cranky: You useless little engines are always in the way.
  • Michael Brandon: Poor Edward. Sir Topham Hatt came inmediately.
  • Sir Topham Hatt: We will take you to the fitters yard and Bertie will have to meet the brass band instead of you.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward was sad. That night a raging storm rolled in. The fitters worked through the night trying to mend Edward. The rain pelted down. Now Edward felt sad and very dammed. Morning came and Sir Topham Hatt arrived.
  • Edward: Please sir.
  • Michael Brandon: Pleaded Edward.
  • Edward: Will the fitters be finished soon?
  • Sir Topham Hatt: Not soon enough and the band can't wait. I'm sorry Edward, Bertie will take them to the concert.
  • Michael Brandon: Edward felt worse than ever. Bertie collected the brass band and set off inmediately. He bummed cheerfully along the country roads. But there was trouble ahead. Last night, storm had flooded the road. Bertie's driver decided to take a shortcut. But it was very muddy. Bertie's wheels did not like the mud. They scooted, they skated, they slid, they slipped.
  • Bertie: I'm stuck!
  • Michael Brandon: He groaned.
  • Bertie: (grunts)
  • Michael Brandon: Bertie revved his engine, but his wheels spun round and round. He couldn't budge. The brass band were worried.
  • Leader: We musn't be late for our concert. Tune up your tuba.
  • Michael Brandon: Cried the leader of the band.
  • Leader: We'll call for help.
  • Michael Brandon: By now Edward was mended and hooked up to his coaches.
  • Edward's Driver: I can hear music.
  • Michael Brandon: Said his driver.
  • Edward: That's not music.
  • Michael Brandon: Wheeshed Edward.
  • Edward: That's an alarm.
  • Michael Brandon: And they raced off to the rescue. The musicians were delighted to see their old friend, so was Bertie.
  • Edward: I'll get you to the concert in time!
  • Michael Brandon: Edward cried.
  • Bandsmen: Thank you.
  • Michael Brandon: Said the worried bandsmen. That night, the concert was a great sucess. Everyone loved the music, especially Edward.
  • (Harold The Helicopter is the last song to happen)
  • Children: (singing) Who do you call when the chips are down? When your back is against the wall. When there's no way out and time is running out and you're heading for a fall? High in the sky. Suddenly comes the hero. You can rely on him. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies, should danger arise. Look to the skies, for Harold will be there. He is a natural hero. He is guardian of the skies. And down through the years there are many tales of his courage in the skies. Out from the clouds. Suddenly comes the hero. We recognize that sound. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies, should danger arise. Reach for the sky, for Harold will be there. Harold the Helicopter, pride of the skies. First to the rescue should help be required. Harold the Helicopter, brave is he. Courage is his name. So look to the skies. See how he flies. You can rely, Harold will be there.
