Narrator: "One evening, Cranky was telling scary stories in the library."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "And then the ghost pony rattled over the bridge, waking up everyone with its spooky whistle. Whoo! Whoo!"

Narrator: "Most of the animals don't take Cranky's stories too seriously, but Pipsqueak found the stories very scary, especially because Pipsqueak often delivered the mail at night. Sometimes at night, things look scarier than they really are."

(Owl hooting)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "And that's when I saw the ghost pony!"

Pipsqueak: (Gasps)

Spike: "Cranky, Pipsqueak doesn't like your stories."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Well, it's not my fault if Pipsqueak's not as brave as I am."

Spike: "If you're so brave, why don't you go out tonight and deliver the mail?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Delivering the mail is a job for a small filly like Pipsqueak. Not a splendid donkey like me."

Pipsqueak: "It's okay, Spike. I don't mind delivering the mail."

Filthy Rich: "If you're really not afraid, Cranky, perhaps you would like to prove it tonight by taking the flying kipper for me."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "All right, Filthy Rich. I shall. I'm not afraid of a few fish."

Spike: "We'll see, Cranky. We'll see."

Narrator: "Cranky made his way to the docks to collect the flying kipper loaded with a fresh shipment of fish, but as he got closer, Cranky began to notice a funny smell."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "O-o-oh!"

Narrator: "Cherry Fizzy was arranging changelings for Gustave, who was unloading the fishing boats."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, Cherry Fizzy. What's that smell?"

Cherry Fizzy: "It's the fish, of course, Cranky. Are you here to collect the flying kipper?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh no. Filthy Rich is suppose to take the flying kipper. I mainly take buffaloes. Perhaps I should go and fetch him."

Narrator: "So Cranky hurried back to the library."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Wake up, Filthy Rich. You need to take the smelly kipper. You're late."

Filthy Rich: "But," (Yawns) "I thought you were taking the flying kipper tonight."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Don't be silly, Filthy Rich. I don't take the flying kipper. That's your job. I'm far too splendid."

Filthy Rich: "But you said you would take it to show how brave you were."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You must have been having a dream about me. Good night, Filthy Rich. See you in the morning."

Filthy Rich: "Oh. I'd better hurry."

Narrator: "Cranky thought he had been very clever telling Filthy Rich that it had all been a dream.

Filthy Rich hurried as fast as he could as he took the flying kipper, but every delivery of fish was late.

And some were very late indeed."

Filthy Rich: (Groans)

Narrator: "When Filthy Rich returned to the library in the morning, Hoity Toity was waiting for him."

Hoity Toity: "What happened to you last night, Filthy Rich? Why was the flying kipper so late?"

Filthy Rich: "Sorry, sir. I must've overslept." (Sighs) "I dreamt that Cranky said he would take the flying kipper for me."

Spike: "That wasn't a dream, Filthy Rich. I heard Cranky tell you that."

Big Macintosh: "I heard him too."

Narrator: "Cranky didn't feel so clever now."

Hoity Toity: "Cranky? Is this true? Was it you who caused confusion and delay?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm sorry, sir. I was going to take the flying kipper for Filthy Rich, sir. I even went to collect the changelings. But they were very smelly, sir."

Hoity Toity: "Smelly? Of course the fish were smelly. But you told Filthy Rich you were going to take that line."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I know, sir, but I thought if I was pulling coaches, my passengers might object, sir. If I was smelly, I mean."

Hoity Toity: "Smelly or not, you shall take the flying kipper tonight to make up for your broken promise to Filthy Rich."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, yes, sir."

Narrator: "Cranky was not happy at all. All day, he kept thinking about the job he had to do that night.

That night, as Cranky approached the docks, he could smell the fish, and he didn't like the smell at all."

Cherry Fizzy: "Hello, Cranky. Where are your buffaloes? You're not here to take the flying kipper, are you?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Possibly."

Narrator: Cranky was very careful backing up to the changelings."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Easy does it now." (Shudders) "I don't want any fish on me."

Narrator: "The changelings thought this was very funny indeed."

Changelings: "Cranky's scared of the smelly fish! Cranky's scared of the smelly fish!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Stop saying that! I am not!"

Changelings: "Cranky's scared of the smelly fish! Cranky's scared of the smelly fish!"

Narrator: "Cranky was distracted because the changelings were teasing him. And then there was trouble. Gustave was still unloading the fish from the fishing boats, and Cranky backed right into his cargo."

(Fish falls on Cranky)

Cranky Doodle Donkey: (Groans)

Gustave Le Grand: "Oh, Cranky!"

Changelings: (Giggle)

Narrator: "The changelings thought Cranky looked very funny indeed, all covered in fish. So did Cherry Fizzy."

Cherry Fizzy: "You're suppose to take the fish in the changelings, Cranky." (Giggles)

(Cranky delivers fish all around Ponyville)

Narrator: "In the morning at the library, the other animals woke up to a strange smell."

Rarity: (Sniffs) "What's that smell?"

Filthy Rich: (Sniffs) "That's the smell of fish."

Spike: (Laughs) "That's the smell of Cranky."

Big Macintosh: (Laugh) "It looks like he's brought a present for Hoity Toity."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "What do you mean?"

Spike, Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, Pipsqueak and Rarity: (Laugh)

Narrator: "There was still a fish sticking out from Cranky's head."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, smelly fish!" (Groans) Oh, I... I had a little accident."

Spike: (Laughs) "But your brown fur looks lovely and shiny now."

Pipsqueak: "It must be all that fish oil, Cranky. You look more splendid than ever."

Spike, Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, Pipsqueak and Rarity: (Laugh)

Narrator: "Then Hoity Toity arrived."

Hoity Toity: "Well done, Cranky. Well done. I was very pleased to hear the fish were delivered on time this morning in spite of your little accident."

(Sniffs) "Oh, Cranky. What a smell. You must go to the showers right away!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Yes, sir. Thank you. I'd be very happy to do that, sir."

Spike, Filthy Rich, Big Macintosh, Pipsqueak and Rarity: (Laugh)

Narrator: "At the showers, Cranky was very happy to be getting clean. He hoped he never had to see another fish for a very long time."
