Baloo's Forest

Narrator: "Baloo the Bear has lived in Disneyland for many years. He wouldn't want to be anywhere else. He likes every part of it. From the fields filled with flowers to the white sandy beaches. But there is one place that Baloo always enjoyed visiting more than any other. His driver knew this too."

Baloo's Driver: "Come on, Baloo."

Narrator: "He would sometimes say."

Baloo's Driver: "We've made good time today. We'll stop for a while by the forest."

Narrator: "Baloo loved it here. The forest was full of broad oaks and tall pines.

Baloo could remember the day long ago where he and Friar Tuck brought some new trees to be planted and Sebastian and Copper helped haul them into place. Now he could see the trees growing amongst the others on the hillside. Baloo always felt better for being here. He couldn't really explain why, but his driver understood."

Baloo's Driver: "It's peaceful."

Narrator: "He said to Baloo.

But one night, everything changed. The Disney characters were resting in the house."

Pongo: "Listen."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Can you hear a strange whistling sound?"

Friar Tuck: "It's the wind blowing outside our house."

Narrator: "Replied Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "But I've never heard it like this before."

Donald Duck: "Do you know?"

Narrator: "Added Donald."

Donald Duck: "If Sir Ector wasn't here now, I'd say it was him thundering by with the express flowers."

Narrator: "All the Disney characters laughed, except Baloo."

Baloo: "I hope the wind won't harm the forest."

Narrator: "By morning, the fierce winds had gone, but the damage was done. Baloo's driver came to see him in the house."

Baloo's Driver: "Trees have fallen on the path. We must help clear the path."

Narrator: "Raccoon Twin #1 set off with the breakdown crane, and Baloo followed.

Trees lay everywhere. The hillside now looked so bare. Baloo felt sad."

Baloo: "What will happen to all the animals who live here?"

Narrator: "He thought.

When Baloo's wagons were full of logs, he took them to the timber mill where they would be turned into furniture and other things. Baloo was glad the wood was being put to good use, but he was still sorry to lose part of his forest."

Friar Tuck: "Oh dear."

Narrator: "Sighed Friar Tuck to Pongo."

Friar Tuck: "I wish there was something we can do to make things better again."

Pongo: "Yes, indeed."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo."

Pongo: "But what? We can't mend broken trees."

Narrator: "Friar Tuck puffed slowly into the yard."

Mickey Mouse: "Hello, Friar Tuck."

Narrator: "Said Mickey Mouse."

Mickey Mouse: "You do look glum."

Friar Tuck: "I'm sad about the trees."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "And so is Baloo. The forest is a special place to him. Now some of it is gone."

Mickey Mouse: "We'll soon put that right. I have an important job for you, Friar Tuck. I would like you to take some wagons to the forest."

Narrator: "When the wagons arrived, Friar Tuck was delighted. They were full of splendid young trees all ready for planting."

Friar Tuck: "This is the best job I've ever had!"

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck happily.

When Baloo returned, he was most surprised. There were Sebastian and Copper busily helping the workmen clear the torn stumps and branches."

Sebastian: "Look, Baloo."

Narrator: "Called Sebastian."

Sebastian: "We're beginning again. The hillside will look better than ever before. You'll see."

Narrator: "Now Baloo can see the new trees growing strong and tall, and the animals are coming back. Sometimes, everywhere is very quiet. And other times, Baloo could hear leaves rustling, or a bird's wing brushing the air. Often he can hear the distance sound of children laughing. And always, he is happy here."

The Trouble with Mud

Narrator: "One morning, Pongo was being cleaned when Sir Ector arrived. Mud had blown all over his body."

Pongo: "Hello Sir Ector."

Narrator: "Called Pongo."

Pongo: "You look as if you've had a mudbath. Be a sensible man. Have a shower instead."

Narrator: "Sir Ector snorted."

Sir Ector: "I haven't time to dawdle over my appearance like fussy dalmatians do."

Narrator: "The wind blew stronger."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Whew, Sir Ector, slow down!"

Narrator: "Called his driver. This made Sir Ector crosser still."

Sir Ector: "I'll be dirty and late, dirty and late!"

Narrator: "He hissed.

At the next station was a sign: "All Disney Characters Must Wash Down Daily".

Donald had just finished being cleaned."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Come on, Sir Ector."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Sir Ector's Driver: "You'll feel better after a good hose down."

Sir Ector: "Pah!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector, and angrily shook his body."

Sir Ector's Driver: "You're a very naughty man!"

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector's driver."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Now Donald will need another shower. You'll have to wait your turn till later."

Sir Ector: "Good riddance!"

Narrator: "Huffed Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "I'm far too busy to waste time with water."

Narrator: "He finished his journey safely and arrived at the big station. Mickey Mouse was waiting, so were Sir Ector's flowers and the passengers."

Mickey Mouse: "Goodness gracious!"

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "You can't take the flowers. Baloo will have to do it. Sir Ector, you'd better get cleaned straight away."

Narrator: "Sir Ector was soon being washed."

Sir Ector: "Mind my eyes!"

Narrator: "He grumbled.

Then he pulled pirates for the rest of the day."

Narrator: "He bumped them hard."

Sir Ector: "That's for you, and you, and you!"

Donald Duck: "Pirates will be pirates."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Sir Ector: "They won't with me."

Narrator: "Snorted Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "I'll teach them!"

Narrator: "Donald got ready to take the express when Sir Ector returned."

Sir Ector: "Be careful."

Narrator: "Warned Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "The hills are slippery and you may need help."

Donald Duck: "I don't need help on hills."

Narrator: "Replied Donald huffily."

Donald Duck: "Sir Ector thinks he knows everything."

Narrator: "Earlier a storm had swept Sir Ector's hill, blowing leaves onto the road, which made it slippery.

Even though the storm had passed, the hill was still difficult to climb. Donald knew this.

The signal showed clear, and Donald began to go faster."

Donald Duck: "I'll do it, I'll do it."

Narrator: "He puffed.

Halfway up, he was not so sure."

Donald Duck: "I must do it, I must do it!"

Narrator: "But his feet slipped on the leaves. He couldn't pull the line at all."

Donald Duck: "Help, help!"

Narrator: "Whistled Donald. His feet were moving forward, but the heavy flowers pulled him backwards.

The whole line started slipping down the hill. His driver put on the brakes. Then carefully, he stopped the line.

Sir Ector saw everything."

Sir Ector: "Ah well, we live and learn. Never mind, little Donald, I'm going to push behind."

Narrator: "Clouds of smoke and steam towered above the snorting Disney Characters."

Donald Duck: "We can do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Donald."

Sir Ector: "We will do it!"

Narrator: "Puffed Sir Ector.

At last, they reached the top."

Donald Duck: "Peep, peep! Thank you. Goodbye."

Narrator: "Whistled Donald."

Sir Ector: "Goodbye."

Narrator: "Answered Sir Ector.

That night, Mickey came to see the Disney Characters."

Pongo: "Please, sir."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Can Sir Ector take flowers again now?"

Mickey Mouse: If you understand that having a washdown is essential to every Disney Character, then yes, Sir Ector, you may."

Sir Ector: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector. The other Disney Characters settled happily to sleep."

Sir Ector: "Dirty or clean, I'm a famous man."

Narrator: "Murmured Sir Ector. But no one heard but him."

No Joke for Donald

Narrator: "Donald is a mixed-traffic duck. He can take both pirates and flowers. He's proud of his smart white feathers, and so is his driver."

Donald Duck's Driver: "Everyone says you brighten up their day, Donald."

Narrator: "One morning, Donald whistled loudly at the other Disney characters."

Donald Duck: "Look at me! I am the smartest, most useful Disney character in Disneyland!"

Pongo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Replied Pongo."

Pongo: "We're all useful! Mickey Mouse says so, and he's head of the whole land."

Piglet: "You know what, Donald?"

Narrator: "Added Piglet."

Donald Duck: "What?"

Narrator: "Replied Donald."

Piglet: "You're getting all puffed up."

Narrator: "Donald huffed away.

Later, he was still boasting."

Donald Duck: "I'm the pride of Disneyland."

Sir Ector: "I saw you taking pirates. You're only a goods duck."

Narrator: "Snorted Sir Ector. Donald was furious."

Donald Duck: "I take flowers too!"

Sir Ector: "Not as mush as I do."

Narrator: "Grunted Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "Mickey Mouse has plans for me."

Narrator: "Donald was only making this up, but Sir Ector believed him."

Sir Ector: "What plans?"

Donald Duck: "Ah, wait and see.

Oh dear."

Narrator: "He thought."

Donald Duck: "Now what'll I do?"

Narrator: "Pongo was arranging shiny new flowers."

Pongo: "Good morning, Donald."

Donald Duck: "Are those flowers for me?"

Narrator: "Asked Donald hopefully."

Pongo: "No. These are for Sir Ector's express. I'll fetch your pirates next."

Narrator: "But Donald was going to play a trick on the other Disney characters."

Donald Duck: "Actually, Pongo, I'm taking the flowers. Mickey asked me to tell you."

Pongo: "What about the pirates?"

Narrator: "Asked Pongo."

Donald Duck: "Ah, give them Sir Ector."

Pongo's Driver: "Come on, Pongo."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Pongo's Driver: "Orders are orders."

Narrator: "So when Donald's driver returned, Donald was hooked up to the flowers and he puffed away.

Pongo returned with the pirates. A few minutes later, Sir Ector arrived."

Sir Ector: "Where's the express?"

Narrator: "Pongo told him about Donald."

Pongo: "And so here are your pirates."

Narrator: "Sir Ector was very cross, and so was his driver."

Sir Ector's Driver: "Wait till Mickey Mouse hears about this!"

Narrator: "Meanwhile, Donald was enjoying himself enormously."

Donald Duck: "What a clever plan, what a clever plan!"

Narrator: "He chuffed.

Then he saw Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "Some jokes are funny, but not this one, Donald. You have caused confusion!"

Donald Duck: "Yes, sir."

Narrator: "Said Donald Duck."

Mickey Mouse: "You will stay in your house until you are wanted!"

Narrator: "The other Disney characters teased Donald."

Sir Ector: "I wonder who'll be pulling the express today."

Narrator: "Said Sir Ector."

Baloo: "I expect it'll be you."

Narrator: "Replied Baloo."

Baloo: "Donald is stuck in his house for being silly."

Narrator: "Donald felt sad.

Next morning, he went back to work."

Pongo: "Hello."

Narrator: "Barked Pongo."

Pongo: "Good to see you out and about again."

Donald Duck: "I'm sorry I tricked you."

Narrator: "Said Donald."

Donald: "Are these my pirates?"

Pongo: "Yes."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo kindly."

Pongo: "They are pleased to have you back."

Narrator: "Donald puffed into the harbor with his line of pirates. He bustled about all day, pushing and pulling them into place."

Donald Duck's Driver: "Time to go home now, Donald."

Narrator: "Said his driver at last."

Donald Duck's Driver: "No pirates or passengers, just we two."

Narrator: "But his driver was wrong."

George Banks: "Excuse me."

Narrator: "Called a man."

George Banks: "I have a meeting with Mickey and I mustn't be late. May I come back with you?"

Donald Duck's Driver: "Of course."

Narrator: "Replied Donald's driver. Then he whispered to Donald."

Donald Duck's Driver: "This gentleman is a town inspector."

Narrator: "Donald was most impressed.

He walked along the path as smoothly and quickly as he could.

Mickey was waiting on the platform, and the town inspector greeted them warmly."

George Banks: "This clever duck gave me a splendid walk. You must be proud of him."

Mickey Mouse: "Yes, indeed. Donald, once again you are a Really Useful Duck."

Pongo, Piglet and the Post

Narrator: "At night, when the other Disney characters are tucked away in the houses, you can still hear the faraway call of a Disney character, and the sound of feet moving.

This is the sound of the post delivery. One set of post is delivered by Pongo, and the other by Piglet, as the loads are too heavy for one Disney character to do the work alone. The post is given to pirates at both the harbors, and the Disney characters pull their line through the silent stations delivering their precious loads.

On a clear night, a big shiny moon brightens their journey, but often Pongo and Piglet can't even see the stars. But whatever the weather, lamps along the path always light their way.

One night, Piglet was waiting at the junction. The main path line was late. At last, Baloo arrived."

Baloo: "Sorry."

Narrator: "He puffed."

Baloo: "The mail boat from the mainland was delayed."

Piglet's Driver: "Come on, Bart."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Piglet's Driver: "Let's make up for lost time."

Narrator: "Piglet puffed along as quickly as he could, but the sun was already rising as he finished his work."

Piglet: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Thought Piglet."

Piglet: "It's nice to be up and about when it's the start of a new day and there's no one else around."

Narrator: "Piglet was not alone for long."

Piglet: "Bother!"

Narrator: "Thought Piglet."

Piglet: "It's that dizzy thing, Owl."

Owl: "Good morning."

Narrator: "Whirled Owl."

Owl: "I always said roads were out of date, but you're so slow with the post. You should give everyone their stamps back posthaste."

Narrator: "Piglet was too tired to explained."

Piglet: "Bird brain!"

Narrator: "He muttered."

Jiminy Cricket: "Good morning, Piglet."

Narrator: "Called Jiminy."

Jiminy Cricket: "You're up early."

Piglet: "No, you're wrong."

Narrator: "Sighed Piglet."

Piglet: "I'm back tired and late."

Narrator: "He rolled into the house and fell asleep almost before his back touched the bed.

His driver decided to set off early that evening. Pongo was waiting at the station."

Pongo: "Thank goodness I have a chance to speak to you. Driver says that the person in charge of the post has complained to Mickey Mouse about the delay last night."

Piglet: "But that wasn't my fault."

Narrator: "Replied Piglet."

Pongo: "I know."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "And so does Mickey, but this post person wouldn't listen. Tonight, we'll just have to be quicker than ever before."

Narrator: "The Disney characters were just leaving the station when they heard a familiar buzzing."

Owl: "I say you two, there's news flying about."

Piglet: "Where?"

Narrator: "Puffed Piglet."

Owl: "All over the place. They're going to scrap your post deliveries and use me instead. Wings work wonders, you know. Always."

Pongo: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Huffed Pongo.

That night, everything ran like clockwork. Pongo and Piglet went through the stations, making good time everywhere they went.

At a station, Pongo saw a man looking cold and worried. He had missed his ride home."

Pongo's Driver: "We can give you a ride."

Narrator: "Said Pongo's driver."

Pongo's Driver: "But it'll be rather uncomfortable."

George Banks: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Said the man."

George Banks: "Anything's better than sitting here."

Narrator: "The next afternoon, Piglet past the forest and saw Owl."

Piglet: "Hello, lazy wings. Are you too tired to fly today?"

Owl: "The wind's too strong. I've been grounded."

Narrator: "Grumbled Owl."

Piglet: "You need roads."

Narrator: "Laughed Piglet."

Piglet: "They work wonders, you know. Always."

Narrator: "That night, Mickey Mouse showed the two Disney characters a letter. It was from the man who had missed his ride."

Mickey Mouse: "He thinks you are both splendid."

Narrator: "Said Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "And everyone says that the post delivery is the pride of the path."

Trust Pongo

Narrator: "Pongo the Dalmatian was feeling bright and cheerful. It was a splendid day."

Pongo: "Good morning!"

Narrator: "He barked to some cows, but the cows didn't reply."

Pongo: "Never mind."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "They're busy with their breakfast."

Narrator: "Next, he saw Tod."

Pongo: "Hello, Tod. Care for a race today?"

Narrator: "But all Tod could say was,"

Tod: "Ouch! That's another hole in the path."

Pongo: "I'm sorry, Tod."

Narrator: "Smiled Pongo.

Pongo was still in good spirits when Tod arrived at the next station."

Pongo: "Bad luck, Tod."

Narrator: "Said Pongo."

Pongo: "Now if you're a dalmatian, you would run a reliable road."

Tod: "Huh!"

Narrator: "Replied Tod."

Tod: "Disneyland was suppose to deliver tar to mend the fox paths two weeks ago. You can't trust thing that runs on roads."

Pongo: "I run on a road. You can trust me, Tod. I'll see if I can find out what's happened."

Narrator: "And Pongo left Tod, and made his way along the branch road towards the big station by the sea.

Donald Duck was snorting about in the yard."

Donald Duck: "It's too bad! Piglet goes to work at the harbor and I do his jobs, here, there and everywhere! Take that!"

Pirates: "Ooh!"

Narrator: "Groaned the pirates."

Pirates: "Just you wait. We'll show you."

Narrator: "Sir Ector laughed."

Sir Ector: "I'll tell you what, Donald. If you pretended to be ill everywhere, you couldn't arrange pirates here, or go to the quarry there, could you?"

Donald Duck: "What a good idea!"

Narrator: "Agreed Donald."

Donald Duck: "Look, here comes Pongo. I'll start pretending now."

Narrator: "Pongo was sorry to see the Disney characters looking miserable."

Pongo: "Cheer up. It's a beautiful day."

Sir Ector: "Yes."

Narrator: "Grumbled Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "But not for Donald."

Pongo: "What's the matter?"

Sir Ector: "He's sick."

Narrator: "Replied Sir Ector."

Donald Duck: "Yes, he is. I mean, I am."

Narrator: "Stuttered Donald."

Donald Duck: "I don't feel well at all."

Pongo: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "Said Pongo kindly."

Pongo: "I'll help out if you're ill."

Narrator: "Sir Ector and Donald sniggered quietly to each other.

Some of Donald's pirates were given to Pongo, and he went to the quarry. The pirates were still cross."

Pirates: "We couldn't pay Donald back for bumping us, so we'll play tricks on Pongo instead. One Disney character is as good as another."

Narrator: "But Pongo didn't hear them. He collected all the stone from the quarry and set off back to the junction.

Danger lay ahead."

Pirates: "Now for our plan."

Narrator: "Giggled the pirates."

Pirates: "Go faster, go faster!"

Pongo's Driver: "Slow down!"

Narrator: "Called Pongo's driver, and applied the brakes.


Poor Pongo stood dazed and surprised in a muddy pond, as a toad eyed him suspiciously."

Pongo: "Bust my paws."

Narrator: "Muttered Pongo."

Pongo: "The day started so well, too."

Narrator: "Jiminy Cricket pulled away the pirates, and Hercules helped Pongo back to the junction.

Suddenly, Pongo remembered the missing tar. He told Hercules all about it."

Hercules: "That's strange."

Narrator: "Said Hercules."

Hercules: "A tanker full of tar has been left at my station. That must be it. Driver will make sure it gets to Tod now."

Narrator: "Later, Donald spoke to Pongo."

Donald Duck: "I'm sorry about your accident."

Narrator: "He muttered."

Donald Duck: "And so is Sir Ector. We didn't mean to get you into trouble."

Sir Ector: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Spluttered Sir Ector."

Sir Ector: "A mere misunderstanding, Pongo. All's well that ends well."

Narrator: "Just then, Tod arrived. He looked much more cheerful."

Tod: "My path's being mended now."

Pongo: "Oh, I am glad."

Narrator: "Replied Pongo."

Tod: "Thanks for all you did. Now I know I can trust a dalmatian, especially if his name is Pongo."

Narrator: "Sir Ector and Donald puffed silently away to the house, but Pongo still had company."

Pongo: "Well, well."

Narrator: "He sighed."

Pongo: "What a day for surprises."

Narrator: "The toad, who was looking forward to a ride home, noisily agreed."


Narrator: "Anna is a princess who works for the quarry company, arranging rhino guards in their sidings. She has blonde hair and a dress.

Anna is young, and full of her own ideas. She loves rearranging things, too, and began putting Friar Tuck's rhino guards in different places every day. This made Friar Tuck cross."

Friar Tuck: "Rhino guards,"

Narrator: "He grumbled,"

Friar Tuck: "should be where you want them, when you want them!"

Anna: "Fiddlesticks!"

Narrator: "Said Anna, and flounced away.

At last, Friar Tuck lost patience."

Friar Tuck: "I can't waste time playing 'Hunt the Rhino Guards' with you, take them yourself!"

Narrator: "Anna was pleased. Taking rhino guards made her feel important.

At the station, Captain Hook oiled up to her."

Anna: "Friar Tuck's an old fusspot!"

Narrator: "She complained.

Captain Hook sensed trouble, and was delighted.

Anna: "Friar Tuck says only badgers can manage rhino guards!"

Narrator: "Continued Anna."

Captain Hook: "How absurd."

Narrator: "Squirmed Captain Hook."

Captain Hook: "Depend upon it, Anna, anything badgers can do, we humans can do better."

Narrator: "Captain Hook knew nothing about rhino guards, but Anna didn't realize this.

Friar Tuck's line crosses the main road behind the station, and for a short way, follows a farm lane. Frosty weather makes the muddy lane rock-hard and very slippery.

Friar Tuck stops before reaching the line. His fireman halts the traffic at the crossing, and then he sets off again. By using the heavy rhino guards to push him along, he has no trouble with the frosty path in the lane. It is the only safe thing to do in this kind of weather.

Friar Tuck warned Anna, and told her just what to do.

Anna: "I can manage, thank you."

Narrator: "She replied."

Anna: "I'm not an old fusspot like you."

Narrator: "The rhino guard were tired of being pushed around by Anna."

Rhino Guards: "It's slippery."

Narrator: "They whispered."

Rhino Guards: "Let's push her around instead. On, on, on!"

Narrator: "They yelled.

Anna took no notice. Instead, she took the rhino guards carefully down the lane, and stopped at the level crossing.

All traffic halted."

Anna: "One in the head for fusspot Friar Tuck!"

Narrator: "Chortled Anna.

But Anna had stopped in the wrong place. Instead of taking Friar Tuck's advice, she had given the rhino guards the chance they wanted."

Rhino Guards: "Hold back! Hold Back!"

Narrator: "They cried."

Anna: "Grrr! Up!"

Narrator: "Ordered Anna.

The rhino guards just laughed, and her feet stuck helplessly.

Workmen sanded the path, and tried to dig away the frozen mud, but it was no good.

Everyone was impatient."

Anna: "Grrr-agh!"

Narrator: "Wailed Anna.

Friar Tuck was in the yard when he heard the news."

Friar Tuck: "I warned her."

Narrator: "He fumed."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "She's young yet,"

Narrator: "Soothed his driver."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "And,"

Friar Tuck: "She can manage her rhino guards herself!"

Narrator: "Interrupted Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "They're your rhino guards, really."

Narrator: "His driver replied."

Friar Tuck's Driver: "Anna is supposed to stay at the quarry. If Mickey Mouse finds out..."

Friar Tuck: "Hmmm, yes"

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck thoughtfully. He and his driver agreed that it would be best to help Anna after all.

An angry farmer was telling Anna just what she could do with her rhino guards."

Friar Tuck: "Having trouble, Anna?"

Narrator: "Chortled Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "I am surprised."

Anna: "Grrrosh!"

Narrator: "Said Anna.

With much puffing and slippery feet, Friar Tuck pushed Anna and the rhino guards back. The hard work made his heart pound fiercely, and his fireman spread hot cinders to melt the frozen mud.

At last, they finished."

Friar Tuck: "Good-bye."

Narrator: "Called Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "You'll manage now, I expect."

Narrator: "Anna didn't answer.

She took the rhino guards to the sheds, and scuttled home to the quarry as quickly as she could."

Friar Tuck's Tightrope

Narrator: "One day, Piglet arrived at the quarry to collect some stone for his rhino guards. Snow and frost lay everywhere. There was not a sound to be heard.

Piglet ventured further. He found Anna, the new princess, resting in the shelter of some rocks."

Piglet: "Cheer up, Anna."

Narrator: "He whistled. Anna was still remembering the trouble she'd had with changelings."

Anna: "Manager says I don't listen to advice. He says I've no business jauntering down Friar Tuck's path. Friar Tuck's a fusspot!"

Piglet: "Friar Tuck has forgotten more about rhino guards than you will ever know."

Narrator: "Replied Piglet."

Piglet: "You must put the rhino guards where he wants them, then you'll be a Really Useful Princess. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to take these rhino guards to the harbor."

Narrator: "Anna liked Piglet, but she still wouldn't listen to his advice."

Anna: "Why shouldn't go on Friar Tuck's path?"

Narrator: "The siding arrangements were awkward. To put the rhino guards where Friar Tuck wanted them, Anna had to make several journeys.

She started making a plan."

Anna: "If we used the teeniest bit of Friar Tuck's path."

Narrator: "She said to her driver."

Anna: "We would save all this bother."

Narrator: "Her driver, suspecting nothing, allowed them to go as far as the first level crossing.

A few days later, the weather changed. As the snow melted, the quarry grew busy again. Some lines were so long that Anna had to go beyond the level crossing. Now for her plan. She would go down further down the path with it seeming her fault."

Anna: "Can you keep a secret?"

Narrator: "She asked the rhino guards."

Rhino Guards: "Yes, yes, yes."

Narrator: "They chattered."

Anna: "Will you bump me at the level crossing and tell no one I asked you?"

Narrator: "The rhino guards promised.

But while Anna was away, Friar Tuck arrived. He decided to arrange the rhino guards himself. The rhino guards decided to bump him anyway.

They reached the level crossing and Friar Tuck stopped. This was the signal for the rhino guards."

Rhino Guards: "On, on, on!"

Narrator: "They yelled.

Friar Tuck was away, with the rhino guards screaming and yelling behind him.

No one realized that melted snow had turned a stream ahead into a torrent and the bridge above it was about to collapse.

The road was now like a tightrope across the thundering water."

Friar Tuck: "Stop, stop!"

Narrator: "Cried Friar Tuck.

His driver fought for control. They came nearer and nearer to the bridge. The driver braked hard.

Friar Tuck stopped, still on the path, but with his feet treading the tightrope over the abyss.

Anna was horrified, and quickly came to the rescue. Workmen anchored Friar Tuck with chains while she pulled the rhino guards away. Then she helped Friar Tuck to safety."

Anna: "I'm sorry about the rhino guards."

Narrator: "Said Anna."

Anna: "I can't think how you managed to stop them in time."

Friar Tuck: "Oh well."

Narrator: "Said Friar Tuck."

Friar Tuck: "My driver told me about circus people who walk tightropes, but I just didn't fancy doing it myself."

Narrator: "Later, Mickey Mouse arrived."

Mickey Mouse: "A very smart piece of work."

Narrator: "He said."

Mickey Mouse: "Anna, you did well too, I hear."

Anna: "It was my fault about those rhino guards, sir."

Narrator: "She faulted."

Anna: "But if I could,"

Mickey Mouse: "Could what?"

Anna: "Come down the path sometimes, sir. Friar Tuck says he'll show me what to do."

Mickey Mouse: "Certainly."

Narrator: "Replied Mickey."

Mickey Mouse: "If your manager agrees."

Narrator: "And so it was arranged. Now Anna is as happy as can be, and Mickey thinks she's Really Useful indeed."

Hercules, Copper and the Really Useful Party

Narrator: "Copper the Hound Dog is old-fashioned, but he doesn't care. He knows that he is really useful, like his friend Hercules.

Early one morning, Copper was chuffing about the vicarage orchard. He had important news for Hercules."

Copper: "Grimsby says that not all children are able to have holidays by the sea, so he's having a garden party to raise money for a seaside trip. I'm going to be the star attraction."

Narrator: "Chattered Copper."

Copper: "Giving rides to all the visitors. Grimsby is putting up posters all about it."

Hercules: "I'd like to help too."

Narrator: "Sighed Hercules."

Hercules: "But without my road, I wouldn't be much good at a garden party."

Narrator: "It was a beautiful day, but Hercules was worried."

Hercules: "I wish there were something I could for the party."

Narrator: "He said."

Hercules: "I'd like to be helpful like Copper."

Narrator: "Hercules' driver laughed."

Hercules' Driver: "You're helpful in your own way, and that's in Disneyland."

Narrator: "Next day, it was Copper's turn to look disappointed. He had bad news."

Copper: "Grimsby's been so busy that he forgot to put up the posters. Now no one will know about the party."

Narrator: "But Hercules had an idea."

Hercules: "Don't worry."

Narrator: "He said."

Hercules: "Everything is going to be all right."

Narrator: "Then he explained to his driver."

Hercules: "Grimsby can paste his posters and me and my flowers, so wherever I go, they'll go too."

Hercules' Driver: "Well done, Hercules."

Narrator: "Said his driver."

Hercules' Driver: "I'm sure Mickey Mouse will agree."

Narrator: "As indeed he did.

Hercules walked happily through the stations collecting his passengers."

Passengers: "Look."

Narrator: "They said."

Passengers: "Grimsby's is holding a party. We must go to that."

Narrator: "Later, Copper was resting in the orchard shed when Tod rolled by."

Tod: "Hello, Copper. Why are you dozing there like an old stick-in-the-mud?"

Copper: "I'm not dozing. I'm resting."

Narrator: "Replied Copper. Then he told Tod about Grimsby's party."

Tod: "I'll be there too."

Narrator: "Boasted Tod."

Tod: "I'm not sure if people will want to ride on a hound dog after traveling with a smart fox like me."

Narrator: "The party day arrived. It had rained heavily during the night, and the orchard ground was soggy."

Copper: "Rain and mud won't spoil my day."

Narrator: "Said Copper."

Alan-a-Dale: "No, indeed."

Narrator: "Agreed his driver."

Alan-a-Dale: "We'll stay on the road, then we won't get bogged down."

Narrator: "Copper was soon busy trundling up and down the quiet country lane, carrying lots of laughing children.

He was just turning a corner when he heard Tod."

Tod: "Hello, old-timer. I'm taking everyone to the party. Hercules' idea is really working."

Narrator: "Copper gave Tod a cheerful whistle and turned back towards the orchard.

Then there was trouble."

Tod: "Help, I'm stuck!"

Narrator: "Shouted Tod. His feet had sunk deep in the orchard mud. Sebastian the Crab arrived just in time."

Sebastian: "I'm the one who helps plow fields."

Narrator: "Laughed Sebastian."

Sebastian: "We'd better get you out."

Narrator: "Using strong ropes, Sebastian and Copper pulled Tod clear of the mud."

Copper: "This will teach Tod a thing or two."

Narrator: "Copper chuffered to himself.

At last, Tod was on the road again."

Tod: "Thank you, Copper."

Narrator: "He laughed."

Tod: "You're not a stick-in-the-mud at all."

Copper: "No."

Narrator: "Smiled Copper."

Copper: "But you were, just for a little while."

Narrator: "That evening, Grimsby arrived to see Hercules and his driver."

Grimsby: "Thanks to your good idea about the posters, hundreds of people paid to come to the party. We've raised lots of money for the children."

Narrator: "Hercules was very pleased, and Copper fell happily asleep thinking of all the children who would now get to the seaside at last."
