Spike the Quarry Dragon

Narrator: "At the very end of Spike's route lays the Ponyville Quarry, one of the oldest quarries in Equestria. Twilight Sparkle is the alicorn who works there, arranging changelings with stone."

Twilight Sparkle: "Get in line and get ready. You're all heading off for the docks this afternoon."

Changelings: "Oh, ow, ow!"

Narrator: "It's not an easy job, but Twilight knows how to keep the changelings in line.

One day, there was a big order of stone from the Quarry to the docks. Spike and Discord had been sent to collect it, but they couldn't agree on which of them would be the back animal."

Spike: "It would be better if you to be my back animal, Discord, After all, it is my route."

Discord: "Nonsense, Spike! You should be my back animal. Having a draconquus on your route is bound to improve it."

Spike: "I could take the changelings by myself."

Discord: "Don't make me laugh! Those changelings are much too heavy for one animal, especially a baby dragon like you."

Twilight Sparkle: "You two should stop arguing. You don't know how lucky are you. I work here in the quarry all the time. At least you get to see the rest of Ponyville and the seaside."

Spike: "Would you like to be my back animal, Twilight?"

Twilight Sparkle: "Oh no, Spike. I have too much work to do here. There are more changelings to get ready and,"

Spike: "I'm sure Discord can look after things here until you get back."

Twilight Sparkle: "That does sound nice, if Discord agrees. In fact, it's a lovely idea."

Discord: "Well, I've got a better one. You can be my front animal, Twilight. Magical creatures are new and revolutionary. We'd be two magical creatures working together."

Twilight Sparkle: "Well, I suppose. Please, Spike, can you look after things here until I get back?"

Discord: "Ta-ta Spike! See you later."

Twilight Sparkle: "There are more changelings to get ready. They need to go to the docks by four. But you'll have to mind them, they can be very troublesome."

Spike: (sighs) "I do know how to look after changelings, Twilight."

Narrator: "Spike set to work taking empty changelings to be filled with stone, and shunting full ones into line. But the changelings were very troublesome. They didn't like to be pushed."

Changelings: "Oh, stop that!"

Narrator: "And they didn't like to be pulled."

Changelings: "Oh, stop! Leave us alone!"

Narrator: "Spike started to get very impatient. He was ready for Twilight and Discord to come back."

Spike: (sighs)

Twilight Sparkle: "Oh, I do love to be by the seaside!"

Cheese Sandwich: "Ah, you're an alicorn after me own heart, Twilight."

Twilight Sparkle: "Thanks for letting me work with you, Discord. But we really do have to get back."

Discord: "What's the rush? We could do another job together. These changelings need to go to the yards. Come on!"

Spike: "Ah ha, here they are at last.

You're not Twilight and Discord."

Braeburn: "I never said we were, did I?"

Scootaloo: "I would have noticed it if you had."

Spike: "But these changelings need to get to the docks, and I need a back animal to take them. Would you like to work with me, Braeburn? You can be my back animal."

Braeburn: "That's too many changelings for me, Spike. And besides, I need to take the workers home for their supper."

Scootaloo: "Just be patient, Spike. I'm sure Twilight and Discord will be back very soon."

Narrator: "Twilight and Discord had delivered the changelings to the yards. Now Twilight was ready to get back to the quarry."

Twilight Sparkle: "I've had a great time, Discord. But I really do need to get back now."

Discord: "But, there are more changelings that need to be taken to the Everfree Forest, Twilight. We make a good time, you and me.

You'd get to see the Ponyville Bridge."

Narrator: "Spike was still waiting and getting very impatient."

Spike: "Hoity Toity will be very cross if these changelings don't get to the docks on time. But, he would be very happy it I took them myself. That's it! I'll show that revolutionary Discord I don't need a back animal after all."

Narrator: "The changelings thought that was a great idea."

Changelings: "Yes, Spike. Do it. We won't push, and we won't hold back. We'll be on our very best behavior." (Laugh)

Narrator: "The changelings were heavy and hard to pull without a back animal. But once they were rolling, they went very well.

Until they reached the first hill."

Changelings: "Hold back, hold back!" (Laugh)

Narrator: "Without a back animal to push from behind, it was very hard to pull the heavy changelings up the hill."

Spike: "Oh! You said you were going to be good."

Changelings: (Giggle) "Sorry, Spike. We forgot. We won't hold you back anymore." (Laugh)

Spike: "What? No! Help!"

Changelings: "On, on! Faster, faster!" (Laugh)

Narrator: "Without a back animal to pull back from behind, it was very hard to slow down, and Spike's trailer wasn't strong enough to stop the heavy changelings."

Changelings: (Laugh) "Faster, faster!"

Spike: "Oh no! Braeburn, look out!"

Narrator: "Luckily, a signalman switched him on a siding."


Changelings: (Laugh)

Twilight Sparkle: "Spike, what happened?"

Spike: "You two were taking so long, I decided not to wait and take the changelings by myself."

Twilight Sparkle: "Without a back animal?"

Spike: "Not a good idea. I know."

Discord: "Sorry, Spike. I did tell Twilight a number of times that we should get back to the quarry."

Twilight Sparkle: "What? You never said... Oh!"

Hoity Toity: (Clears throat)

Narrator: "Twilight and Discord helped to get Spike and the changelings back onto the path."

Hoity Toity: "I know naughty Discord and Twilight Sparkle left you all on your own, Spike, but you should never have taken those changelings without a back animal."

Spike: "I'm sorry, sir. I was trying to be useful."

Narrator: "Hoity Toity sent Twilight Sparkle back to the quarry to do what she does best. But he also realized that now and then, it was nice for her to take changelings down to the docks, and take makes Twilight a very happy alicorn, indeed."

Twilight Sparkle: "Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside." (Cheese Sandwich joins in) "Oh! I do like to be beside the sea. Oh! I do like to stroll along the Prom, Prom, Prom. Where the brass bands play:" (Gustave joins in) "Tiddely-om-pom-pom!" (Spike joins in) "Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside." (Cherry Fizzy joins in) "Oh! I do like to be beside the sea. When I'm down beside the sea. I'm beside myself with glee. Beside the seaside! Beside the sea!"

Not So Slow Fillies

Narrator: "There's nothing Spike likes more than taking Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle along his route.

But even though his fillies are very faithful, they do sometimes complain, especially when Spike goes a bit too fast."

Apple Bloom: "He's doing it again, Sweetie Belle."

Sweetie Belle: "I agree, Apple Bloom. He's going dreadfully fast."

Spike: (Laughs) "I can hear you two."

Narrator: "One day, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle were complaining as usual."

Apple Bloom: "Spike, slow down."

Sweetie Belle: "My horn is rattling."

Narrator: "So Spike decided to be a little cheeky."

Spike: (Cackles)

Apple Bloom: "Oh, dearie me. What are you doing, Spike? Now you're going too slow."

Sweetie Belle: "You need to speed up if you're going to get us anywhere on time."

Spike: "But I thought you two wanted me to go slowly. Oh, well. If you want me to go fast..." (Cackles)

Sweetie Belle: "Clattering fillies!"

Apple Bloom: "Oh, that's much too fast."

Spike: (Laughs)

Apple Bloom: "Cheeky Spike!"

Sweetie Belle: "Cheeky, cheeky Spike!"

Spike: (Laughs)

Narrator: "By the time Spike arrived at the Ponyville Airfield, he was running rather late."

Spike: (Gasps) "Fire and scales! I'm suppose to be taking some changelings to the quarry after this."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Mrs. Cake was pulling into the yards. Mrs. Cake was a very fast unicorn indeed."

Truffle Shuffle: "Hello, Mrs. Cake. What are you doing here?"

Mrs. Cake: "I'm been going so fast I've loosen some fur, Truffle Shuffle. I need to go to the works and get them tighten. Can I leave my buffaloes here and come back for them later?"

Truffle Shuffle: "Sure thing, Mrs. Cake."

Narrator: "As Mrs. Cake pulled away, Spike arrived at the yards."

Spike: "Sorry, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. I'll have to leave you here for a while. I'm late for the quarry."

Sweetie Belle: "Well, if you hadn't been messing around, Spike. This wouldn't have happened."

Apple Bloom: "I agree. Too much going too fast. Then too much going too slow."

Narrator: "Spike hurried up to the quarry as fast as he could."

Twilight Sparkle: "Thanks, Spike. Empty changelings, and just in time."

Spike: (Panting) "You're welcome... Twilight."

Narrator: "Then he hurried back from the quarry. But..."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: (Snoring)

Narrator: "Mrs. Cake came back at the yards first."

Mrs. Cake: "I've come to collect my buffaloes, Truffle Shuffle."

Truffle Shuffle: "Coming, Mrs. Cake.

Ooh. I've got a joke for you. How do bees get to school?"

Mrs. Cake: "Uh, I don't know."

Truffle Shuffle: "On a school buzz."

Truffle Shuffle and Mrs. Cake: (Laugh)

Narrator: "Truffle Shuffle was so busy joking, he accidentally put Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle over to Mrs. Cake along with her own buffaloes."

Apple Bloom: "Ooh. Oh, Spike must be back."

Sweetie Belle: "About time too." (Yawns)

"Now, don't go too fast, Spike.

(Gasps) "Spike? You're over there."

Apple Bloom: "Well, if he's over there, then who is pulling us?"

Spike: "Fizzling fire breath! Wait, Mrs. Cake! Come back!"

Sweetie Belle: "This is the fastest we've ever been."

Apple Bloom: "I don't like it at all!"

Sweetie Belle: "I've got my eyes closed."

Apple Bloom: "Does it help?"

Sweetie Belle: "No, not really."

Narrator: "At last, Mrs. Cake stopped at Sugar Cube Corner."

Sweetie Belle: "Thank goodness for that."

Mrs. Cake: "Hello, Carrot Cake. How about a race up to the castle?"

Apple Bloom: "Oh, dear. A race?"

Sweetie Belle: "Please say no. Please say no. Please say no."

Mr. Cake: "You're on, Cup Cake."

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "No!"

Mrs. Cake: "Ready. Set. Go!"

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "No!"

Spike: "No!"

Mrs. Cake: "Whee!"

Mr. Cake: "Yay, hey-hey-hey! Why-ha hey-hey! You'll never beat me, Cup Cake!"

Mrs. Cake: (Giggles) "We'll see about that."

Apple Bloom: "Oh!"

Sweetie Belle: "I'll never complain about Spike again!"

Apple Bloom: "No will I!"

Spike: "If I ever get Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle back, I'll never tease them again."

Narrator: "Spike puffed as fast as he could, but before he could get up to the castle..."

Spike: "Mrs. Cake!"

Mrs. Cake: "Spike!"

Spike: "Apple Bloom! Sweetie Belle!"

Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: "Spike!"

Narrator: "Mrs. Cake was already on her way back, heading for the mainland."

Spike: "Oh, on."

Narrator: "Spike had to stop Mrs. Cake before she went over the Ponyville bridge to the mainland."

Spike: "Oh, no. I'm too late. I'll never be able to catch up with Mrs. Cake now."

Mr. Waddle: "Hello, Spike."

Spike: "Hello, Mr. Waddle."

Mr. Waddle: "It's a good thing I stopped Mrs. Cake. She was taking your fillies away."

Spike: "Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle. You brought them back. Thank you."

Apple Bloom: "Yes! Thank you, Mr. Waddle."

Sweetie Belle: "Thank you indeed."

Spike: "Oh, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle, I'm sorry I teased you."

Apple Bloom: "And we're sorry we complained about how fast you were going."

Sweetie Belle: "We'll never do it again."

Narrator: "Spike wanted to got even faster, but he was so happy to have Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle back, he just smiled."

Apple Bloom: "Although you are going a bit fast now."

Sweetie Belle: "Much too fast, if you ask me.

Apple Bloom: "You're so right, Sweetie Belle. Much too fast."

Spike, Apple Bloom and Sweetie Belle: (Laugh)

Changelings of Fear

Narrator: "It was a misty day in Ponyville.

At the train station, Gustave was unloading a shipment of building supplies."

(Whistling and Wailing)

Spike: "What's that noise?"

Cheese Sandwich: "Ah." (Laughs) "That'll be the Changelings of Fear, Spike."

Spike: "The Changelings of Fear? What are they?"

Cheese Sandwich: "Well, now, my laid, long, long ago, an old pony was puffing along the path pulling three changelings when suddenly, his rope snapped, and the changelings rolled away.

Now, the changelings roll the paths a-whistling and a-wailing, and looking for an animal to hoop up to." (Laughs) "So my laid, beware the Changelings of Fear. They might come rolling after you." (Laughs)

Gustave: "Enough of your tall tales, Cheese Sandwich! Spike has work to do. Off you go, Spike."

Narrator: "So Spike was hooked up to the changelings, and, with a blow of his whistle, was on his way."

Cheese Sandwich: "Watch out for the Changelings of Fear, Spike. You never know when they'll come rolling by." (Laughs)

Narrator: "Spike clattered through the mist with his changelings carrying the pipes, when suddenly he heard the noise again."

(Whistling and Wailing)

Spike: "What's that?"

Narrator: "Spike looked around, but he couldn't see anything that could have made the mysterious sound.

Rarity and Filthy Rich were at the yards when Spike arrived."

Rarity: "Hello, Spike."

Spike: "I've just heard the Changelings of Fear."

Filthy Rich: "The Change who of what?"

Spike: "The Changelings of Fear. Cheese Sandwich told me about them. They roam the paths in search of an animal, and they whistle and wail."

Filthy Rich: "That sounds spooky!"

Spike: "It was!"

Rarity: "Oh, don't be such a pair of scaredy animals! There must be a perfectly sensible explanation."

Filthy Rich: "I hope so. I really do."

Narrator: "The next morning, Filthy Rich was sent to pick up the pipes from the yards and take them to Sweet Apple Acres."

Filthy Rich: "I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear! I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear!"

(Cow mooing)

Filthy Rich: "Oh no! It's the Changelings of Fear."

(Cow mooing)

Narrator: "But it was just a cow in the field."

Filthy Rich: "I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear! I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear!"

(Whistle blows)

Filthy Rich: "Oh! It's the Changelings of Fear!"

Narrator: "But it was just the stationmaster blowing his whistle.

Filthy Rich finally made it to the yards, and picked up the pipes."

Filthy Rich: "I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear! I don't want to hear the Changelings of Fear!"

(Whistling and Wailing)

Narrator: "Then Filthy Rich heard some whistling, and some wailing."

Filthy Rich: "Oh no! That's not a cow in a field, and it's not the guard's whistle. It must be the Changelings of Fear!"

Narrator: "Filthy Rich was much to scared to keep on puffing. He slowed right down, so his driver took him onto a siding, thinking there was something wrong. Filthy Rich stopped, and he wouldn't budge.

Rarity had to be called to take the changelings to Sweet Apple Acres."

Rarity: "You are being very silly, Filthy Rich! There really are no such things as the Changelings of Fear."

Filthy Rich: "But there are. I heard them."

Rarity: "Nonsense! What did you actually hear?"

Filthy Rich: "I heard a whistling and wailing sound, just like Spike said."

Rarity: "Oh! Well, I still think there must be a sensible explanation."

Narrator: "Then, Rarity heard something too."

Rarity: "What's that noise? Spike, are you playing a trick on me?"

Narrator: "But Rarity couldn't see Spike anywhere."

(Whistling and Wailing)

Rarity: "Filthy Rich, is that you?"

Narrator: "There was no sign of Filthy Rich. Rarity puffed away as fast as she could, but the whistling and wailing was right behind her."

Rarity: "Oh no! Maybe there isn't a sensible explanation. Maybe it really is the Changelings of Fear!"

Narrator: "Rarity puffed faster and faster as she tried to get away from the Changelings of Fear. Then there was trouble. Rarity took a turn too fast. The pipes came loose and rolled off the changelings."

Rarity: "Bubbling bodies! Oh, at least I can't hear the Changelings of Fear anymore. They must have gone away after another animal."

Narrator: "Bulk Biceps had to be called to load the spilled pipes onto the changelings again.

Meanwhile, Spike was at the station."

Spike: "Have you got some more pipes ready for me, Gustave?"

Gustave: "Keep your head on, Spike! Nearly done."

Cheese Sandwich: (Laughs) "There's a bit of a breeze whipping up, my laids."

(Whistling and Wailing)

Spike: "Oh no! It's the Changelings of Fear!"

Gustave: "There are no Changelings of Fear! That's just the wind whistling through the pipes."

Spike: "Really?"

Gustave: "Ugh, you animals!"

Spike: "Cheese Sandwich, you said the whistling and wailing was the Changelings of Fear."

Cheese Sandwich: "Ah, that I did. But it might just have been the wind."

Spike: "You were teasing us all along."

Cheese Sandwich: "Oh, that's the way it is with us party ponies." (Laughs)

Narrator: "That night, Rarity was late getting back the library."

Rarity: "Oh, Spike, you were right. The Changelings of Fear are real."

Spike: "What do you mean? You're the one that was right. There was a sensible explanation."

Rarity: "Really? But I heard the sound, and it kept falling me and... What's explanation?"

Spike: "It was one of Cheese Sandwich's tall tales. The noise was just the wind blowing through the pipes."

Rarity: "Wind? Blowing through the pipes? Oh, I-I see. I knew it had to be something, and I wasn't really scared."

Narrator: "But everyone knew that Rarity really had been frighten. And after that, nobody ever spoke about the Changelings of Fear again, expect maybe Cheese Sandwich."

Cheese Sandwich: "And to this day, the Changelings of Fear roll the Ponyville paths looking for an animal to hook up to." (Laughs)

Rarity: "Oh, Cheese Sandwich. Honestly!"

Spike, Filthy Rich, Rarity and Cheese Sandwich: (Laugh)

Disappearing Creatures

Narrator: "Some animals in Ponyville give creatures a bad reputation."

Discord: (Cackling)

Pipsqueak: "Hey!"

Discord: (Laughs)

Silver Shill: (Humming)

Narrator: "Silver Shill is one of the kindest ponies you could ever meet."

Silver Shill: "Good morning, Spike."

Spike: "Good morning, Silver Shill."

Narrator: "And because he is kind, Silver Shill has lots of friends.

Silver Shill is friends with the toys up at the Blue Valley Quarry."

Woody: "Hello there, Silver Shill."

Silver Shill: "Hello, Woody."

Narrator: "And with Cheese Sandwich and Cherry Fizzy at the train station. Even Cranky Gustave is friends with Silver Shill."

Silver Shill: "Look, Gustave! I've got your favorite again; heavy stone."

Gustave: "Oh, Silver Shill. You shouldn't have."

Narrator: "But the creature Silver Shill has to try the hardest to be friends with is Discord himself."

Silver Shill: "Oh! Discord! Hello! Hello?"

Narrator: "Unfortunately, Discord is not a very easy creature to be friends with."

Discord: "Quick, Silver Shill is coming. Let's all hide so he can't find us. It'll be very funny."

Manny Roar: "Okay."

Ursa Minor: "I like funny jokes."

Discord: "Come on, Mule. You need to hide too."

Silver: "Hello! Oh, you'll never guess what happened down at the station. It...


Oh. There's nobody here."

Discord: (Cackles)

Silver Shill: "Creatures? Where can they be?

Anybody here?"

Manny Roar: "No." (Laughs)

Silver Shill: "Hello!

What's going on?

Something terrible must have happened. All the creatures have disappeared. I have to find them!"

Discord: (Laughs)

Mule: "I think we've taken this joke a little too far."

Manny Roar: "Yeah."

Ursa Minor: "What he means is, Silver Shill was really worried."

Discord: (Laughs) "Don't be be such fussy feet! It was joke, that's all. And jokes are really funny."

Narrator: "Silver Shill didn't think it was a joke at all."

Silver Shill: "Hello? Any creatures here?"

Slinky: "I'm a creature."

Narrator: "But Silver Shill didn't hear Slinky, because he was already hurrying away."

Silver Shill: "Have you seen any creatures, Spike?"

Spike: "Um, I can see you."

Silver Shill: "Not me! The other creatures. They've disappeared!

Where's Cheese Sandwich? Is he missing too? Something is making all the creatures disappear."

Gustave: "Don't take nonsense, Silver Shill! Cheese Sandwich went by five minutes ago."

Cheese Sandwich: "Ah! Somebody mentioned my name?"

Silver Shill: "Oh, Cheese Sandwich! Thank goodness you're sill here."

Cheese Sandwich: (Laughs) "You're burning energy over nothing. The other creatures will turn up soon enough."

Silver Shill: "Oh, do you really think so, Cheese Sandwich."

Cheese Sandwich: "Oh, no doubt about it, buddy. Cool your legs and fill your body again."

Narrator: "After all the rushing around, Silver Shill's body was getting low."

Cheese Sandwich: "I bet my hooves at the end of the day, the creatures will be back at the Creatureworks, where they belong."

Gustave: "And here's Discord himself."

Silver Shill: "Discord? Where?"

Discord: "Shh, Gustave! Who asked you to put your wings in?"

Silver Shill: "Discord? Wait! Come back!"

Discord: (Laughs) "Silver Shill doesn't give up easily. I'll give him that."

Silver Shill: "Discord! Wait!"

Children: (Cheering)

Discord: "They don't call me "Devious Discord" for nothin'!" (Chuckles)

Stellar Eclipse: "Yes? Can I help you, Discord?"

Silver Shill: "Is that Discord over there, Stellar Eclipse?"

Discord (In a different voice): "Uh, no. It isn't!"

Silver Shill: "But that did sound like Discord?"

Stellar Eclipse: "That's because it is Discord, Silver Shill."

Discord (In a different voice): "No, it's not. I'm a changeling full of sausages." (Laughs)

Silver Shill: "Sausages? Discord, wait! Come back!"

Stellar Eclipse: "Oh, what do you want to go chasing after him for?"

Silver Shill: "He's my friend!"

Stellar Eclipse: "Is he really?"

Narrator: "Discord was still having so much fun that he decided to go up to the quarry to hide.

But no sooner had he pulled off the main path than he ran out of strength."

Discord: "No! My body can't be empty."

Silver Shill: "Finally! Discord, I've been worried. All the creatures have gone missing."

Discord: "We weren't missing. We were hiding from you."

Silver Shill: "Oh! Well, that's not a very good hiding place, Discord. I can see you." (Laughs)

Discord: (Sighs) "I know. I didn't expect to stop."

Silver Shill: "A better hiding place would be behind a shed or some bushes or even up at the quarry."

Discord: "I know! I know! I didn't plan to hide here, but I ran out of strength and..."

Silver Shill: "Oh! Well, why didn't you say so?"

Discord: "What are you doing?"

Silver Shill: "I'm taking you to the next stop so you can get some more food."

Discord: "Oh."

Narrator: "Discord didn't know what to make of this. He hadn't been very kind to Silver Shill, but Silver Shill was being very kind to him.

Discord didn't know what to say. He didn't like to say "Thank you", so he didn't say it?"

Discord: "Why did you help me?"

Silver Shill: "That's what friends are for."

Narrator: "Silver Shill was just happy to have found Discord again.

He was even happier when he got back to the creatureworks and found the other creatures there."

Silver Shill: "Hello. I was looking for you."

Narrator: "Discord came back to the sheds and back into the berth beside Silver Shill. He still didn't manage to say "Thank you", but he did manage a friendly smile, and that was enough to make Silver Shill smile too."

Tank's Adventure

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves and Tank used to work in Canterlot. Dr. Hooves never tired of telling the story of how they first came to Ponyville."

Dr. Hooves: "And then, there was that night of my daring escape from the scrapyard! Ha! What an adventure that was. Unbelievable!"

Tank: "I know, Mr. Hooves. I was there too. Remember? And I heard this story before."

Dr. Hooves: "Never before has a earth pony had such a narrow escape! The moon was full that night, and the wind was rustling in the trees. I weren't scared, though."

Narrator: "Dr. Hooves had told Tank the Tortoise the same story 100 times. Sometimes Tank wished he had his own adventure story to tell so that he didn't have to listen to Dr. Hooves' all the time."

Dr. Hooves: "Oh, yes! My escape from that scrapyard was probably the greatest escape anyone's ever had."

Narrator: "At the shunting yards, Dr. Hooves was unhooked from Tank, and given some buffaloes instead."

Dr. Hooves: "Bye, Tank. See you later. Nice talking to you."

Narrator: "Tank was happy not to listen to Dr. Hooves' stories for a while, but he didn't like the idea of sitting around doing nothing. He wanted an adventure all of his own."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Pets. Huh! I don't know why I need a pet at all. I never have accidents."

Tank: "Please, Mr. Cranky. Hello. Did you say you needed a pet, sir? Perhaps I could help."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You? What's so special about you?"

Tank: "Well, ask anyone, sir. I love helping haul coal changelings, and my feet are strong, and... oh, please, Mr. Cranky!

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, all right. All right. Come along then. I haven't got all day."

Narrator: "So Tank was hooked up to Cranky. He was delighted to be heading off to the Everfree Forest."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I don't suppose you see splendid animals like me on your Little Pony line very often."

Tank: "No, sir, but..."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Did you know I am the brightest brown donkey in the whole town of Ponyville."

Tank: "Yes, sir. I can see that..."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "You could travel for miles around and not find a better donkey than me."

Tank: "D-d-d-do we have to go so f-fast, Mr. Cranky?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "I'm no slow coach! The sooner I get these changelings to the Everfree Forest, the sooner I can get back to working with buffaloes."

Tank: "Ooh! Ow!" (Coughs) "Please slow down, sir! This is d-d-dangerous. Dr. Hooves would never go this fast with a full load."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Nonsense! I know what I'm doing. I go this fast all the time."

Narrator: "As they approached Big Macintosh's hill, Cranky pumped his legs faster than ever. Tank decided he didn't want an adventure anymore."

Tank: "Oh, dear! Oh, dear me!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Ha-ha! You see, Tank? Nothing slows me down.

Oh! Oof!

Oh no!"

Tank: "Oh, mister Cranky! What was that?"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "We've hit a branch!

Stop the changelings!"

Tank: "I'm trying, Mr. Cranky! I'm trying!"

Narrator: "Spike was taking Hoity Toity and Mayor Mare to the mainland to go to the opera."

Mayor Mare: "I used to be quite the singer in my day. Would you like to hear me sing?"

Hoity Toity: Um, well, perhaps later."

Mayor Mare: "Ah-heh-heh-hem. Me, my, moo. Ah-ha-ha! Ahem. Loo, loo, loo, loo."

Spike: "Fire and scales!"

Mayor Mare: "Whoa!"

Hoity Toity: "Spike, why have we stopped?"

Spike: "Up ahead, sir! Look!"

Hoity Toity: "Spike, back up! Back up!"

Pipsqueak: "Spike, look out!"

Spike: "Pipsqueak!

Oh no! We're going to have a crash!"

Pipsqueak: (Gasps)

Tank: (Gasps) "Oh no!"

Narrator: "Tank could see that Spike and Pipsqueak didn't have enough time to reverse and clear the path. Tank knew he had to save them all now."

Tank: (Grunting)

Hoity Toity: "He's going to hit us!"

Tank (Grunting)


Narrator: "Tank had done it. He'd stop the coal changelings just in time. Everyone was very relieved."

Tank: (Coughs)

Spike: "Well done, Tank!"

Tank: "Thank you, Mr. Spike. Just..." (Coughs) "doing my job."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Sorry, Spike. I lost my changelings on the hill. Is everyone all right?"

Hoity Toity: "No, Cranky. Everyone is not all right. You have caused confusion and delay. I demand to know how this happened!"

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Well, sir, the thing is, I was going too fast..."

Tank: "There was a fallen branch on the path, sir. It was nobody's fault. It was an accident."

Hoity Toity: "Oh, accident, eh? Well, um..."

Mayor Mare: "Sounds to me rather like this little tortoise saved us all from certain disaster. Wouldn't you agree?"

Hoity Toity: "Yes, I..." (Clears throat) "I suppose so."

Mayor Mare: "You are a really useful and very brave tortoise."

Hoity Toity: "Quite right. Um, well done, Tank. Carry on. Carry on. The opera awaits!"

Mayor Mare: "Oh-ho-ho! La-lo-lo-lo-lo, lee, lee, lee. Me, my, moo, moo."

Narrator: "Tank was still thinking about what Mayor Mare had said to him. He felt very proud."

Tank: "You can go a little faster if you like, Mr. Cranky."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Oh, no. This will do. Thank you, Tank. Never too slow. Never too fast. That's what I always say.

Thanks for your help today, Tank."

Tank: "And thank you very much, sir."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Call me Cranky."

Tank: "Hello, Mr. Hooves. I..."

Dr. Hooves: "Hello, Tank! You'll never believe what happened to me today. Let me tell you all about it."

Cranky Doodle Donkey: "Actually, Dr. Hooves, I think you should ask Tank about the adventure he had today."

Dr. Hooves: "You, Tank? You had an adventure?"

Tank: "Well, yes, as it happens. It all started when I was hooked to Mr. Cranky, and he started to go a bit too fast. By the time we reached Big Macintosh's hill, we were going so fast, my feet were shaking!"

Dr. Hooves: "Well, that don't sound like much of an adventure, Tank."

Tank: "But that's not all. That's when we saw a branch had fallen on the line."

Dr. Hooves: "No!"

Tank: "Yes! And the thing was, we were going so fast we couldn't stop."

Dr. Hooves: (Gasps) "So, what happened next?"

Tank: "That's when it got really scary. Cranky couldn't stop."

Narrator: "And so Tank told everyone about his adventure on the main road. Dr. Hooves said he could hardly believe it, but Tank said that was okay. He'd tell him the whole story again tomorrow."

Animal Roll Call

They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight,
Arranging changelings and carrying freight.
Red and white and brown and purple,
They're the Really Useful crew.
All with different roles to play
'round the Library or far away,
Down the hills and round the bends,
Spike and his friends.

Spike, he's the cheeky one,
Cranky is vain but lots of fun.
Pipsqueak delivers the mail on time,
Big Macintosh thunders down the path.
Rarity really knows her stuff,
Filthy Rich pulls and heaves and hauls.
Shining Armor wants to help and share,
Braeburn, well, let's say, he's yellow.

They're two, they're four, they're six, they're eight,
