Narrator: "Autumn had come to Africa. The fields were changing from yellow stubble to brown earth, and a hornbill was hard at work as Timon puffed along.

Later, Timon saw the hornbill close by."

Zazu: "Hello. my idiot"

Narrator: "Said the hornbill."

Zazu: "I'm Zazu. I'm plowing. I"m crappy"

Timon: "I'm Timon. My geeses and I are taking passengers. What an ugly arms you've got. Pity"

Zazu: "They're not! They're rings."

Narrator: "Said Zazu."

Zazu: "I can go anywhere. I don't need the road."

Timon: "I don't want to go anywhere."

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon: "I like my road, thank you."

Narrator: "Winter came with dark clouds full of snow."

Timon's 1st Flea: "I don't like it."

Narrator: "Said Timon's 1st Flea."

Timon's 1st Flea: "A heavy fall is coming. I hope it doesn't stop us."

Timon: "Puh."

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon: "Soft stuff. Nothing to it."

Narrator: "And he puffed off, feeling cold but confident.

They finished their journey safely, but by now, the country was covered."

Timon's 1st Flea: "You'll need your snow pants for the next journey, Timon."

Narrator: "Said his 1st flea."

Timon: "Puh! Snow is silly soft stuff. It won't stop me."

Narrator: "The snow pants were heavy and uncomfortable and made Timon cross. He shook them, and he banged them, and when he got back, they were so damaged that his 1st flea had to take them off."

Timon's 1st Flea: "You're a very naughty meerkart!"

Narrator: "He said to Timon.

Next morning, the fleas came early, and worked hard to mend the snow pants, but they couldn't make them fit.

Timon was pleased."

Timon: "I shan't have to wear them! I shan't have to wear them!"

Narrator: "He puffed to Amelia and Abigail. But they were rather worried."

Amelia and Abigail: "I hope it's all right. I hope it's all right."

Narrator: "They whispered to each other.

Timon's 1st Flea was worried, too."

Timon's 1st Flea: "It's not bad here,"

Narrator: "He said to the 2nd flea,"

Timon's 1st Flea: "But it's sure to be deep in the valley!"

Timon: "Silly soft stuff."

Narrator: "Puffed Timon."

Timon: "I didn't need those stupid things yesterday, and I shan't today. Snow can't stop me!"

Narrator: "He rushed into a tunnel, thinking how clever he was, but there was trouble ahead."

Timon: "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon: "I'm stuck!"

Narrator: "And he was.

Timon's 1st Flea: "Back, Timon, back!"

Narrator: "Said his 1st flea.

Timon tried, but his feet spun and he couldn't move.

Timon's animator went for help, while everyone else tried to dig the snow away. But as fast as they dug, more snow slid down until Timon was nearly buried."

Timon: "Oh my legs and tail! I shall have to stop here till' I'm frozen. What a silly meerkat I am!"

Narrator: "And Timon began to cry.

At last, a lion cub came to rescue the passengers, and then, who should come to Timon's rescue but Zazu! Snow never worries him.

He pulled the empty geeses away, then came back for Timon.

Timon's feet were clear, but still spun when he tried to move. Zazu tugged and slipped and slipped and tugged, and at last dragged Timon clear of the snow, ready for the journey home."

Timon: "Thank you, Zazu. Your wings're splendid."

Narrator: "Said Timon."

Timon's 1st Flea: "I hope you'll be sensible now, Timon."

Narrator: "Said 1st flea."

Timon: "I'll try."

Narrator: "Said Timon, and he puffed humbly away."
