Transcript

Pooh, Todd and The Coal

  • Ringo Starr: It was a beautiful morning in Disneyland. Winnie The Pooh's smart clothes sparked in the sunshine, as he strolled happily along his route with Janna and Hope. He was feeling very pleased with himself.
  • Todd: Hello, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Todd.
  • Todd: You look splendid.
  • Pooh: Yes indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Boasted Pooh.
  • Pooh: Blue is the only proper color for a character.
  • Kuzco: Oh, I don't know. I like my brown paint.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Todd: I've always been green. I wouldn't want to be any other color either.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Todd.
  • Pooh: Well, well, anyway.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Pooh.
  • Pooh: Blue is the only color for a really useful character. Anyone knows that.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd said no more. He just grinned at Kuzco. Later, Pooh was resting when Todd arrived. A large hopper was loading his pirates full of coal. Pooh was still being cheeky.
  • Pooh: Careful.
  • Ringo Starr: He warned.
  • Pooh: Watch out with those silly pirates.
  • Pirates: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: Muttered the pirates.
  • Pooh: And by the way.
  • Ringo Starr: Went on Pooh.
  • Pooh: Those buffers don't look really safe to me.
  • Ringo Starr: The last load poured down.
  • Pooh: Help, I'm choking!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Pooh.
  • Pooh: Get me out!
  • Ringo Starr: Todd was worried, but he couldn't help laughing. Pooh's smart clothes was covered in coal dust from smokebox to bunker.
  • Todd: Ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Todd.
  • Todd: You don't look really useful now, Pooh Bear. You look really disgraceful.
  • Pooh: I'm not disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Choked Pooh.
  • Pooh: You did that on purpose. Get me out!
  • Ringo Starr: It took so long to clean Pooh that he wasn't it time for his next train. Kuzco had to take Janna and Hope.
  • Janna: Poor Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Janna and Hope. They were most upset. Pooh was grumpy in the shed that night. Kuzco thought it made a great joke, but Todd was cross with Pooh for thinking he had made his paint dirty on purpose.
  • Todd: Fancy a really useful blue character like Pooh Bear becoming a disgrace to Mickey Mouse's railway.
  • Ringo Starr: Next day, Pooh was feeling more cheerful, as he watch Todd bring his pirates from the junction. The pirates were heavy and Todd was tired.
  • Driver: Have a drink.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Then you'll feel better.
  • Ringo Starr: The water column stood at the end of the siding with the unsafe buffers. Suddenly, Todd found that he couldn't stop. The buffers didn't stop him either.
  • Todd: Ooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Todd.
  • Todd: Help!
  • Ringo Starr: The buffers were broken and Todd was wheel deep in coal. It was time for Pooh to leave. He had seen everything.
  • Pooh: Now Todd has learned his lesson too.
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled to himself. That night, the two characters made up their quarrel.
  • Todd: I didn't cause your accident on purpose, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Todd.
  • Todd: You do know that, don't you?
  • Pooh: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Pooh.
  • Pooh: And I'm sorry I was cheeky. Your green paint look splendid again too. In future, we're both be more careful of coal.

Cows

  • Ringo Starr: Hercules was getting old. His bearings were worn, and he clanked as he puffed along. He was taking empty cattle pirates to a market town. The sun shone, birds sang, but Hercules was heading for trouble.
  • Hercules: Come on! Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Pirates: Oh, oh, oh, oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Screamed the pirates. Hercules puffed and clanked, the cars rattled and screamed. Some cows were grazing near by. They were not used to trains. The noise and smoke disturbed them. As Hercules clanked by, they broke through the fence and ran across the line. A coupling was broken and some pirates were left behind. Hercules felt a jerk, but didn't take much notice. He was used to cattle pirates.
  • Hercules: Bother those pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Hercules: Why can't they come quietly?
  • Ringo Starr: He was at the next station before either he or his driver realized what had happened. When Mike and Dave heard about the accident, they laughed and boasted.
  • Mike: Fancy allowing cows to break his train! They wouldn't dare do that to us. We'd show them!
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco was cross.
  • Kuzco: You couldn't help it, Hercules. They've never met cows. I have, and I know the trouble they are.
  • Ringo Starr: Some days later, Mike rushed through Hercules' Station.
  • Mike: Boop boop! Mind the cows! Hurry, hurry, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Mike.
  • Coaches: Don't make such a fuss! Don't make such a fuss!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled his coaches. A long stretch a line lay ahead. In the distance was a bridge. It seemed to Beck that there was something on the bridge. His driver thought so too.
  • Driver: Whoa, Mike!
  • Ringo Starr: He said, and shut off steam.
  • Mike: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Mike: It's only a cow! Shooh! Shooh!
  • Ringo Starr: He moved slowly on to the bridge, but the cow wouldn't "Shooh"! She had lost her calf, and felt lonely.
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She said sadly. Everyone tried to send her away, but she wouldn't go. Dave arrived.
  • Dave: What's this? A cow? I'll soon settle her. Be off! Be off!
  • Cow: Mooooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the cow. Dave backed away nervously.
  • Dave: I don't want to hurt her.
  • Ringo Starr: At the next station, Dave's guard told them about the cow, and warned the signalman that the line was blocked.
  • Porter: That must be Bluebell.
  • Ringo Starr: Said a porter.
  • Porter: Her calf is here, ready to go to market. Todd will take her along.
  • Ringo Starr: At the bridge, Bluebell was very pleased to her calf again, and the porter led them away.
  • (Cows mooing)
  • Dave: Not a word.
  • Mike: Keep it dark.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Mike and Dave to each other. They felt rather silly, but the story soon spread.
  • Hercules: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Hercules.
  • Hercules: Two big characters afraid of a cow.
  • Mike: Afraid? Rubbish.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Mike: We didn't want the poor thing to hurt herself by running up against us. We stopped so as not to excite her. You see what mean, my dear Hercules.
  • ​Hercules: Yes, Mike.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules. Mike felt somehow that Hercules "saw" only too well.

Lightning McQueen's Chase

  • Ringo Starr: One morning, Hercules was waiting to pick up passengers from Pooh Bear's train.
  • Hercules: Peep peep! We're late! Where is Pooh? He doesn't usually make us wait.
  • Fireman: Oh dear, what can the matter be?
  • Ringo Starr: Sanged the fireman.
  • Fireman: Johnny's so longer...
  • Driver: Never you mind abot Johnny.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the driver.
  • Driver: Just you climb on the cab and look for Pooh. Can you see him?
  • Fireman: No.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied the fireman.
  • Fireman: There's Lightning McQueen in the terriying hurry. No need to bother with him though. Likely, he's on the coach tour of something.
  • Ringo Starr: He clambered down.
  • Lightning McQueen: Stop, stop! I've got Pooh's passengers!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Lightning McQueen, roaring up to the gates. It was no good. Hercules was gone.
  • Lightning McQueen: Bother.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Bother Pooh's fireman not coming to work today. Why did I promise to help the visitors catch the train?
  • Driver: That will do, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: A promise is a promise and we must keep it.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'll catch Hercules or bust.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Oh, my gears and axles!
  • Ringo Starr: He groaned, toiling up the hill.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'll never be the same car again. Hooray, hooray! I see him!
  • Ringo Starr: Cheered Lightning McQueen as he reached the top.
  • Lightning McQueen: Oh no! Hercules' at the station! No, he stopped at the crossing. Hooray, hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Lightning McQueen toured down the hill.
  • Passengers: Well done, Lightning McQueen!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted his passengers.
  • Passengers: Go it!
  • Ringo Starr: Lightning McQueen skitted into the yard.
  • Lightning McQueen: Wait, wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Lightning McQueen. He was just in time to see Hercules puffed away.
  • Lightning McQueen: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Lightning McQueen.
  • Passengers: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the passengers.
  • Passengers: After him quickly. Third time lucky you know. Do you think we'll catch em at the next station, driver?
  • Driver: There's a good chance.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied his driver.
  • Driver: Our road keeps close to the line and we can climb hills better than Hercules. I'll just make sure.
  • Ringo Starr: He spoke to the stationmaster. Lightning McQueen and the passengers waited impatiently.
  • Driver: Yes! We'll do it this time.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver.
  • Passengers: Hooray!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers, as Lightning McQueen chased after Hercules once more.
  • Coaches: This hill is too steep, this hill is too steep!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the coaches as Hercules snorted in front. They reach the top at last and ran smoothly into the station.
  • Hercules: Peep, peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Hercules.
  • Hercules: Get in quickly please.
  • Ringo Starr: The guard blew the whistle and Hercules' driver looked back. But the flag didn't wave, Then he heard Lightning McQueen. Everything seem to happy at once, and the stationmaster told the guard and driver what had happened.
  • Hercules: I'm sorry about the chase, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Lightning McQueen: My fault.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Lightning McQueen.
  • Lightning McQueen: Late at junction. You didn't know about Pooh's passengers.
  • Kuzco: Peep peep! Goodbye, Lightning! We're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Hercules.
  • Passengers: Three cheers for Lightning McQueen!
  • Ringo Starr: Called the passengers. Lightning McQueen raced back to tell Pooh that all was well.
  • Pooh: Thank you, Lightning McQueen.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: You're a very good friend indeed.

Saved From Scrap

  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse works his characters hard, but they are very proud when he calls them really useful.
  • Hercules: I'm going to the scrap yard today.
  • Ringo Starr: Hercules called to Pooh.
  • Pooh: What? Already? You're not that old.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Pooh cheekily. Pooh was only teasing. The scrap yard is full of rusty old parts and machinery. The are broken into pieces, loaded into pirates, and Hercules pulls them to the steel works where they are melted down and used again. Today, there was a surprise waiting for Hercules in the yard. It was a cat.
  • Hercules: Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: You're not broken and rusty. What are you doing here?
  • Oliver: I'm Oliver. They're going to break me up next week.
  • Hercules: What a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Oliver: My driver says I only need some paint, polish and oil to be as good as new. But my owner says I'm old-fashioned.
  • Ringo Starr: Hercules snorted.
  • Hercules: People say I'm old-fashioned, but I don't care. Mickey Mouse says I'm a useful character. What work did you do?
  • Oliver: My owner would send us from farm to farm. We threshed corn, hauled logs and did lots of other work. The children loved to see us.
  • Ringo Starr: Oliver shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Oliver: Oh, yes. I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: Hercules set off to the station.
  • Hercules: Broken up, what a shame. Broken up, what a shame. I must help Oliver, I must.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought of all his friends who liked characters. But strangely, none of them would have room for a cat at home.
  • Hercules: It's a shame, It's a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed. Then...
  • Hercules: Peep-peep! Why didn't I think of him before?
  • Ringo Starr: There, on the platform was the very person.
  • Grimsby: Hello, Hercules. You look upset. What's the matter, Charlie?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked the driver.
  • Kuzco's Driver: There's a boy in the scrap yard, Grimsby. He'll be broken up next week. Alan says he never drove a better character.
  • Hercules: Do save him, sir. He saws wood and gives children rides.
  • Grimsby: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Grimsby. Alan came on Saturday.
  • Alan: The reverend's coming to see you, Oliver. Maybe he'll buy you.
  • Oliver: Do you think he will?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Oliver hopefully.
  • Alan: He will when I've lit your fire and clean you up.
  • Ringo Starr: Grimsby and his two boys arrived that evening. Oliver hadn't been so happy for months. He chuffered about the yard.
  • Grimsby: Show your paces, Oliver.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Grimsby. Later, he came out of the office, smiling.
  • Grimsby: I've got him cheap, Alan. Cheap.
  • Alan: Do you hear that, Oliver?
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Alan.
  • Alan: The reverend saved you and you live in the vicarage now.
  • Oliver: Peep-peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Oliver. Now Oliver's home is in the vicarage orchard. And he sees Hercules every day. His paint is spotless and his brass shines like gold. Oliver likes his work, but his happiest day is the church fair. With a wooden seat bolted to his bunker, he chuffers around the orchard, giving rides to children. Long afterwards, you will see him shut his eyes, remembering.
  • Oliver: I like children.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispers happily.

Old Iron

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Ron had to wait at the station till Hercules and his books came in. This made him cross.
  • Ron: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: Hercules laughed and Ron fumed again. After Ron had finished his work, he went back to the yard, and puffed on to the turntable. He was still feeling very bad tempered.
  • Ron: Hercules is impossible!
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled to the others.
  • Ron: He clanks about like a lot of old iron and he is so slow, he makes us wait!
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh and Todd were indictment.
  • Todd: Old iron! Slow!
  • Pooh: Why, Hercules could beat you in a race any day!
  • Ron: Really!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ron.
  • Ron: I should like to see him do it.
  • Ringo Starr: Next morning, Ron's driver was suddenly taking ill. He could hardly stand, so the fireman uncoupled James ready for shunting. Ron was impatient. Suddenly, the signalman shouted. There was Ron puffing away down the line.
  • Signalman: All traffic halted!
  • Ringo Starr: He announced at last. Then he told the fireman what had happened.
  • Signalman: Two boys were on Ron's footplate fiddling with the controls.
  • Fireman: Whew.
  • Signalman: They tumbled off and ran when Ron started.
  • (Phone rings)
  • Ringo Starr: The signalman answered the telephone.
  • Signalman: Yes? He's here? Right, I'll tell him. The inspector's coming at once. He wants a shunter's pole and a coil of wire rope.
  • Fireman: What for?
  • Ringo Starr: Wondered the fireman.
  • Signalman: Search me, but you better get them quickly.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman was ready when Hercules arrived. The inspector saw the pole and a rope.
  • Inspector: Good man, jump in.
  • Hercules: We'll catch him, we'll catch him.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Hercules. Ron was laughing.
  • Ron: What a lark! What a lark!
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled to himself. Suddenly, he was going faster and faster. He realized that he had no driver.
  • Ron: What shall I do? I can't stop! Help! Help!
  • Hercules: We're coming, we're coming!
  • Ringo Starr: Called Hercules. Hercules was panting up behind with every ounce of steam he had. At last, he caught up with Ron.
  • Driver: Steady, Hercules.
  • Ringo Starr: Called his driver. The inspector stood on Hercules' front holding a noose of rope in the crook of the shunter's pole. He was trying to slip it over Ron's buffer. The characters swayed and lurched. At last...
  • Inspector: Got him!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted. He pulled the noose tight. Gently braking, Hercules' driver checked the characters' speed, and Ron's fireman scrambled across and took control.
  • Hercules: So the old iron caught you after all.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Hercules.
  • Ron: I'm sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Ron.
  • Ron: Thank you for saving me. You were splendid, Hercules.
  • ​Hercules: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Hercules. The characters arrived at the station side by side. Mickey Mouse was waiting.
  • Mickey: A fine piece of work.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Mickey: Ron, you can rest, and then take your train. I'm proud of you, Hercules. You shall go to the works and have your worn parts mended.
  • Hercules: Oh, thank you, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: It'll be lovely not to clank.

Pooh and Oliver

  • Ringo Starr: Oliver the Tabby Kitten enjoyed living in the Vicorage Orchard. Hercules came to see him everyday, but sometimes Oliver didn't have enough work to do.
  • Oliver: I do like to keep busy all the time.
  • Ringo Starr: He sighed one day.
  • Oliver: And I do like company, especially children's company.
  • Hercules: Cheer up.
  • Ringo Starr: Smiled Hercules.
  • Hercules: Mickey Mouse has work for you at his new harbor. I'm to take you to meet Pooh Bear today.
  • ​Oliver: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Oliver happily.
  • Oliver: A harbor. The seaside. Children! That will be lovely!
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh was on his way to the harbor with a trainload of metal pilings. They were needed to make the harbor warf firm and safe.
  • Hercules: Hello, Pooh Bear.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: This is Oliver, a friend of mine. He's a kitten.
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh eyed the newcomer doubtfully.
  • Pooh: A what?
  • Ringo Starr: He asked.
  • Oliver: A kitten.
  • Ringo Starr: Exclaimed Oliver.
  • Oliver: I run on roads instead of rails. Can you take me to the harbor, please? Mickey Mouse has a job for me.
  • Pooh: Yes, of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Pooh. But he was still puzzled. Workmen coupled Oliver's car to Pooh's train. And soon, they were ready to start their journey.
  • Oliver: I'm glad Mickey Mouse needs me.
  • Ringo Starr: Called Oliver.
  • Oliver: I don't have enough to do sometimes, you know. Although I can work anywhere. In orchards, on farms, in scrap yards, even at harbors.
  • Pooh: But you don't run on rails.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Pooh.
  • Oliver: I'm a kitten. I don't need rails to be useful.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Oliver.
  • Oliver: You wait and see.
  • Ringo Starr: When they reached the harbor, they found everything in confusion. Pirates have been derailed, blocking the line. And stone slabs lay everywhere.
  • Driver: We must get these pilings past.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh's driver.
  • Driver: They are essential. Oliver, we need you to drag them around this mess.
  • Oliver: Just the sort of job I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Oliver.
  • Oliver: Now you'll see, Pooh Bear. I'll soon show you what kittens can do.
  • Ringo Starr: Oliver was as good as his work. He dragged the pilings clear with chains, and towed them into position.
  • Oliver: Who needs rails?
  • Ringo Starr: He muttered cheefully to himself. Later, Pooh brought Janna and Hope to visit him. Jake was most impressed.
  • Pooh: Now I understand how useful a Tabby Kitten can be.
  • Ringo Starr: The coaches were full of children. Oliver gave them rides along the harbor. He liked this best of all.
  • Janna: He's very kind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Janna.
  • Hope: He reminds of Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Hope. Everyone was sorry when it was time for Oliver to go. Pooh pulled him to the junction. A small tear came into Oliver's eye. Pooh pretended not to see. He whistled gaily to make Oliver happy.
  • ​Pooh: I'll come and see you if I can.
  • Ringo Starr: He promised.
  • Pooh: Grimsby will look after you and there's plenty of work for you now at the orchard. But we may need you again at the harbor someday.
  • Oliver: That would be wonderful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Oliver. That evening, Oliver stood remembering his new friend, Pooh, the harbor, and most of all, the children. Then he went happily to sleep in the shed at the bottom of the orchard.

Todd and The Traffic Light

  • Ringo Starr: Todd works in the yard at the big station. He loves playing jokes, but they can get them into trouble. One morning, he was very cheeky indeed.
  • Todd: Peep peep! Hurry up, Mike, the train's ready.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike thought he was late.
  • Todd: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Todd and showed him a train of dirty pirates. Mike thought how he can pay Todd back for teasing him. Next it was Ron's turn.
  • Todd: Stay in the shed today, Ron. Mickey Mouse will come and see you.
  • Ron: Ah!
  • Ringo Starr: Thought Ron.
  • Ron: Mickey Mouse knows I'm a fine kid. He wants me to pull the special train.
  • Ringo Starr: Rons driver and fireman could not make him move. The other characters grumbled dreadfully. They had to do Ron's work as well as their own. At last, the inspector arrived.
  • Inspector: Show a wheel, Ron. You can't stay here all day.
  • Ron: Mickey Mouse told me to stay here. He sent a message this morning.
  • Inspector: He did not. How could he? He's away for a week.
  • Ron: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ron.
  • Ron: Oh. Where's Todd?
  • Ringo Starr: Todd had wisely disappeared. When Mickey Mouse came back, he did see Ron and Todd too. Both characters wish he hadn't. One morning, Todd was careless.
  • Todd: I say, you characters, I'm to take some pirates to Pooh's junction. Mickey Mouse chose me specialy. He must know I'm a really useful kid.
  • Ron: More likely, he wants you out of the way.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Ron. Mike looked across to Ron. They were going to make a plan.
  • Mike: Ron and I were just speaking about signals at the junction. We can't be too careful about signals, but then I needn't say that to a really useful kid like you, Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd felt flattered.
  • Ron: We've had spoken about backing signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Ron.
  • Ron: They need extra special care you know. Would you like me to explain?
  • Todd: No thank you, Ron.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • Todd: I know all about signals.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd was a little worried.
  • Todd: I wonder what backing signals are.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Todd: Never mind, I'll manage.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed crossly to his pirates and felt better. He came to a signal.
  • Todd: Bother, it's a danger.
  • Ringo Starr: The signal moved to show line cleared. It's arm moved up instead of down. Todd had never been that sort of signal before.
  • Todd: Down means go and up means stop. So upper still must mean go back. I know. It's one of those backing signals.
  • Driver: Come on, Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Off we go. Stop! You're going the wrong way!
  • Todd: But it's a backing signal.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd protested and told him about Mike and Ron. The driver laughed and explained.
  • Todd: Oh, dear.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • Todd: Let's start quickly before they see us.
  • Ringo Starr: He was too late. Mike saw everything. That night, the big characters talked about signals. They thought the subject was funny. Todd thought they were being very silly.

Penn Takes Charge

  • Todd: Do you know what?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Todd.
  • Mike: What?
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Mike.
  • Todd: Do you know what?
  • Mike: Silly!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Mike: Of course I don't know what. If you don't tell me what what is.
  • Todd: Mickey Mouse says that the work in the yard is too heavy for me. He's getting a bigger character to help me.
  • Ron: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ron.
  • Ron: Any character could do it. If you work hard and chatterless, this yard would be a sweeter, a better and a happier place.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd went off to get some coaches.
  • Todd: That stupid old signal.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. He was remembering the time he misunderstood a signal and gone backwards instead of forwards.
  • Todd: No one listens to me now. They think I'm a silly little kid and order me about. I'll show them, I'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: But he didn't know how. By the end of the afternoon, he felt tired and unhappy. He brought some coaches to the station.
  • Mickey: Hello, Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey: You look tired.
  • Todd: Yes sir, I am sir. I don't know if I'm standing on my head or on my feet.
  • Mickey: You look the right way up to me.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed Mickey.
  • Mickey: Cheer up. The new character is bigger than you and can properly do the work alone. Would you like to help build my new harbour? Pooh and Kuzco will help.
  • Todd: Oh yes, sir. Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: The new character arrived.
  • Mickey: What's your name?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Mickey.
  • Penn: Montague, sir, but I'm usually called Penn. They say I waddle. I don't really, sir, but I like Penn better than Montague.
  • Mickey: Good. Penn it shall be. Here, Todd, show Penn around.
  • Ringo Starr: The two characters went off together. Soon they were very busy. Ron, Mike and Dave watched Penn quietly doing his work.
  • Dave: He seems a simple sort of character.
  • Ron: We'll have some fun and order him about.
  • All: (quacking) Wheesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Smoke billowed everywhere. Todd was cross, but Penn took no notice.
  • Penn: They'll get tired of it soon. Do they tell you to do things, Todd?
  • Todd: Yes they do.
  • Ringo Starr: Answered Todd.
  • Penn: Right.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Penn.
  • Penn: We'll soon stop that nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: He whispered something.
  • Penn: We'll do it later.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey was looking forward to hot buttered toast for tea at home. Suddenly, he heard an extroitnary noise.
  • All: Wheesh! (snorting)
  • Mickey: Bother!
  • Ringo Starr: He said and hurried to the yard. Penn and Todd calmly sat on the points outside the shed, refusing to let the characters in. Mike, Ron and Dave were furious.
  • Mickey: Stop that noise!
  • Ringo Starr: Bellowed Mickey.
  • Mike: They won't let us in!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Mike.
  • Mickey: Penn, explain this behavior.
  • Penn: Beg pardon, sir, but I'm a part-time hero. We do our work without fuss, but begging your pardon, sir. Todd and I will be glad if you like to inform these, um, characters that we only take orders from you.
  • (Characters blew their whistles loudly)
  • Mickey: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Snapped Mickey.
  • Mickey: Todd and Penn, I am pleased with your work today, but not with your behavior tonight. You have caused a disturbance.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike, Dave and Ron sniggered.
  • Mickey: As for you.
  • Ringo Starr: Thundered Mickey.
  • Mickey: You've been worse. You made a disturbance. Penn is quite right. This is my railway and I give the orders.
  • Ringo Starr: After Todd went away, Penn was left to manage alone. He did so...easily!

Todd and Launchpad

  • Ringo Starr: Todd worked hard at the new harbor. The workmen needed stone for their building. Kuzco helped, but sometimes the loads of stone were too heavy, and Todd had to fetch them for himself. Sometimes, he'd see Pooh.
  • Pooh: Well done, Todd. Mickey Mouse is very pleased with us.
  • Ringo Starr: An airfield was closed by. Todd heard the airplane zooming overhead all day. The noises of all was a duck.
  • Todd: Stupid thing!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • Todd: Why can't and go and buzz somewhere else?
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Todd stopped at the airfield.
  • Todd: Hello.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • ​Todd: Who are you?
  • Launchpad: I'm Launchpad.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the duck.
  • Launchpad: Who are you?
  • Todd: I'm Todd. What whirly great arms you've got.
  • Launchpad: They're nice arms.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: I can hover like a bird. Don't you wish you could hover?
  • Todd: Certainly not. I like my rails, thank you.
  • Launchpad: I think railways are slow.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: They're not much use and quite out of date.
  • Ringo Starr: He whirled his arms and buzzed away. Todd found Kuzco at the quarry.
  • Todd: I say Kuzco. That Launchpad, that stuck up whirlybird thing, says I'm slow and out of date. Just let him wait. I'll show him.
  • Ringo Starr: He collected his pirates and started off still fuming. Soon, they heard a familar buzzing.
  • Driver: Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered his driver.
  • Driver: There's Launchpad. He's not far ahead. Let's race him.
  • Todd: Yes, let's.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd. Todd pounded along, the pirates screamed and swayed.
  • Driver: Well, I'll be a ding-dong dang!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver. There was Launchpad. The race was on!
  • Driver: Go it, Todd!
  • Ringo Starr: He yelled.
  • Driver: You're ganging!
  • Ringo Starr: Todd had never been allowed to go fast before. He was having the time of his life.
  • Todd: Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the pirates.
  • Pirates: We don't want to, we don't want to.
  • Ringo Starr: They grumbled. It was no use. Todd was bucketing along with flying wheels and Launchpad was high and alongside. The fireman shoveled for dear life.
  • Driver: Well done, Todd!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted the driver.
  • Driver: We're ganging! We're going ahead! Oh good boy, good boy!
  • Ringo Starr: A distant signal warned them that the harbour wharf was near.
  • Todd: Peep peep peep! Brakes, guard, please?
  • Ringo Starr: The driver carefully checked the train's headlong speed. They rolled onto the main line, and haulted on the wharf.
  • Todd: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Groaned Todd.
  • Todd: I'm sure we've lost.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman scrambled to the cab roof.
  • Fireman: We've won, we've won!
  • Ringo Starr: He shouted.
  • Fireman: Launchpad's still hovering. He's looking for a place to land. Listen, boys.
  • Ringo Starr: The fireman called.
  • Fireman: Here's a song for Todd. (singing) Said Launchpad McQuack to our Todd you are slow. Your railway is out of date and not much used you know, but Todd and his pirates did the trip in record time, and we beat the duck on our old branch line.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd loved it.
  • Dipper: Oh, thank you!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. He liked the last line best of all, and was a very happy boy.

The Runaway

  • Ringo Starr: Winnie The Pooh was ill. Workmen had tried to make him better, but it was no use.
  • Mickey Mouse: Hercules must take you to the works.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey Mouse. Pooh felt very miserable. Then, Mickey spoke to Penn.
  • Mickey Mouse: I want you to help Todd and Kuzco while Pooh is away.
  • Ringo Starr: Penn was delighted. He already knew Todd and soon made friends with Kuzco and Lightning McQueen. Sebastian gave him a big welcome too.
  • Sebastian: Take care of Pooh's coaches.
  • Ringo Starr: He advised.
  • Sebastian: He's sure to miss them while he's away. Penn was very gentle with the coaches. Janna and Hope were impressed.
  • Janna and Hope: Such nice manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They told each other.
  • Janna and Hope: It really is a pleasure to go out with him.
  • Ringo Starr: When Pooh came back, Janna and Hope told him how well Penn had managed. Pooh was so pleased to be home that he soon forgot to be jealous. The works have left Pooh's handbrake very stiff. It made his brakes seen they were on, when in fact they were not. As a result, he and his coaches often overran the platform. Pooh found this most embarrasing. Gradually, his driver and fireman learned to be extra careful. But one day, Pooh's fireman was ill and a relief man took his place. The fireman had fastened the coupling and joined the driver and stationmaster on the platform to wait for Dave's passengers. The fireman had forgot all about Pooh's handbrake. Pooh simmered happily.
  • Pooh: Not long now.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought. As he saw Dave slowly approaching. But Pooh's brakes were not on and suddenly he felt his feet begin to move. He tried to stop, but he couldn't without his driver and fireman. He tried to whistle a warning, but he couldn't do that either. The guard, driver fireman and passengers were all stranded on the platform.
  • Janna and Hope: Stop! Stop!
  • Ringo Starr: Shrieked Janna and Hope. But Pooh, with plenty of steam, kept on going. The alarm went down the line.
  • Signalman: Stop the runaway!
  • Ringo Starr: There ready for action was Launchpad McQuack. The inspector had made a plan and together they took off into the sky. At last Pooh was tiring.
  • Pooh: I need to stop, I need to stop.
  • Ringo Starr: He panted weirdly. As they neared the next station Pooh saw Launchpad land. They entered the platform slowly enough for the inspector to act. Judging his moments the inspector scrambled into the cab and screwed the brakes on.
  • (The inspector brakes with all his strength)
  • Ringo Starr: At last Pooh stopped. Both he and the inspector were very relieved. Then they thanked Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: Think nothing of it.
  • Ringo: Starr: Whirled Launchpad.
  • Launchpad: Glad to be at service anytime.
  • Inspector: Phew.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked The inspector.
  • Inspector: You must never let this happen again, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Weirdly, Pooh agreed with him.

Todd Takes The Plunge

  • Ringo Starr: One day, Dave wanted to rest, but Todd was talking to some characters. He was telling them about the time he had braved bad weather to help Pooh.
  • Todd: It was raining hard. Water swirled under my boiler. I couldn't see where I was going, but I struggled on.
  • Chip: Oh, Todd, you are brave.
  • Todd: Well, it wasn't anything really. Water's nothing to a character with determination.
  • Dale: Tell us more, Todd.
  • Dave: What are you characters doing here?
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Dave.
  • Dave: This shed is for Mickey Mouse's characters. Go away. Silly things.
  • Ringo Starr: Dave snorted.
  • Todd: They're not silly.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd had been enjoying himself.
  • Dave: They are silly and so are you. Water's nothing to a character with determination. Huh.
  • Todd: Anyway.
  • Ringo Starr: Said cheeky Todd.
  • Todd: I'm not afraid of water, I like it.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran off to the harbour singing.
  • Todd: Once a character attached to a train, was afraid of a few drops of rain.
  • Dave: No one ever lets me forget the time I wouldn't come out of the tunnel in case the rain spoiled my paint.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Dave. Pooh was looking at the board on the key.
  • Pooh: Danger. We mustn't go passed it.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Pooh: That's orders.
  • Todd: Why?
  • Pooh: Danger means falling down something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: I went pass danger once, and fell down a mine.
  • Todd: I can't see a mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd. He didn't know that the foundations of the key had sunk. The rails now sloped down into the sea.
  • Todd: Stupid board.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd. Todd made a plan. One day, he whispered to the pirates.
  • Todd: Will you give me a bump when we get to the key?
  • Ringo Starr: The pirates had never asked to bump a character before. They giggled and chattered about it.
  • Todd: Driver doesn't know my plan.
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Todd.
  • Pirates: On, on, on!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the pirates. Todd thought they were helping.
  • Todd: I'll pretend to stop at the station, but the pirates will push me pass the board. Then I'll make them stop. I can do that wherever I like.
  • Ringo Starr: Every wise character knows that you cannot trust pirates.
  • Pirates: Go on, go on!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled, and bumped Todd's driver and fireman off the footplate.
  • Todd: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd, sliding pass the board. Todd was frantic.
  • Todd: That's enough!
  • Ringo Starr: Todd was sunked.
  • Mickey: You are a very disobeident character.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd knew that voice.
  • Todd: Please, sir, get me out, sir, I'm truly sorry, sir.
  • Mickey: No, Todd, we cannot do that till high tide. I hope it will teach you to obey orders.
  • Todd: Yes, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: It was dark when they brought floating cranes to rescue Todd. He was too cold and stiff to move by himself. Next day, he was sent to the works on Dave's goods train.
  • Dave: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Dave.
  • Dave: Did you like the water?
  • Todd: No.
  • Dave: I am surprised. You need more determination, Todd. Water's nothing to a character with determination you know. Perhaps you will like it better next time.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd is quite determined that there won't be a next time.

Pop Goes The Captain

  • Ringo Starr: Penn is very proud of being a part-time hero. He talks endlessly about it. But he works hard too and makes everything ran like clockwork. It was a splendid day. The pirates and flowers behave well, the passengers even stopped grumbling. But the characters didn't like having to bustle about.
  • Penn: There are two ways of doing things.
  • Ringo Starr: Penn told them.
  • Penn: The part-time way, or the wrong way. I'm a hero and...
  • All: Don't we know it!
  • Ringo Starr: They groaned. The characters were glad when the visitor came. He purred smoothly towards him. Mickey introduce him.
  • Mickey: Here is Captain Hook. I have agreed to give him a trial. He needs to learn. Please teach him, Penn.
  • Hook: Good morning.
  • Ringo Starr: Purred Hook in an oily voice.
  • Hook: Please to meet you, Penn. Is that Ron and Dave and Mike too? I am delighted to meet such famous characters.
  • Ringo Starr: The silly characters were flattered.
  • Characters: He has very good manners.
  • Ringo Starr: They murmured.
  • Characters: We are pleased to have in our yard.
  • Ringo Starr: Penn had his doubts.
  • Penn: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He said. Hook purred after him.
  • Hook: Your worthy Mic...
  • Penn: Mickey Mouse to you.
  • Ringo Starr: Ordered Penn. Hook looked hurt.
  • Hook: Your worthy Mickey Mouse thinks I need to learn. He is mistaken. We pirates don't need to learn. We know everything. We come to a yard and improvement. We are revolutionary.
  • Penn: Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Penn.
  • Penn: If you are revo-thingummy, perhaps you would collect my pirates while I fetch Mike's flowers.
  • Ringo Starr: Hook delighted to show off, purred away. When Penn returned, Hook was trying to take some pirates from a siding. They were old and empty. They've not been touch for a long time. Hook found them hard to move. Pull! Push! Backwards! Forwards!
  • Pirates: Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: The pirates groaned.
  • Pirates: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Penn watched with interest. Hook lost patience.
  • Hook: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: He roared, and gave a great heave. The pirates jerked forward.
  • Pirates: Oh! Oh!
  • Ringo Starr: They screamed.
  • Pirates: We can't! We won't!
  • Ringo Starr: Some of their brakes snapped, and the gear jammed in the sleepers.
  • Hook: Grrrr!
  • Penn: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Penn. Hook recovered and try to push the pirates back, but they wouldn't move. Penn ran quietly around to collect the other pirates.
  • Penn: Thank you for arranging these, Hook. I must go now.
  • Hook: Don't you want this lot?
  • Woody: No thank you.
  • Ringo Starr: Hook gulped.
  • Hook: And I've taken all this trouble? Why didn't you tell me?
  • Penn: You never asked me. Besides.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Penn.
  • Penn: You were having such fun being revo-whatever-it-was-you-said. Goodbye.
  • Hook: Grrrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Hook had to help the workmen clear the mess. He hated it. All the pirates were laughing and singing at him.
  • Pirates: Pirates are waiting in the yard, tackling them with ease'll, show the world what I can do, gaily boasts the captain in and out he creeps about, like a big black weasel, when he pulls the wrong pirates out, Pop Goes the Captain!
  • Hook: Grrr!
  • Ringo Starr: Growled Hook, and scuttled away to sulk in the shed.

Dirty Work

  • Ringo Starr: Hook, the head Captain, was sulking. The pirates would not stop singing rudely at him. Penn was horrified.
  • Penn: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: He ordered, and bumped them hard.
  • Penn: I'm sorry our pirates were rude to you, Hook.
  • Ringo Starr: Hook was still furious.
  • Hook: It's all your fault. You made them laugh at me.
  • Dave: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dave.
  • Dave: Penn would never do that. We characters have our differences, but we never talked about them to the pirates. That would be dis...dis...
  • Mike: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Ron: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Ron.
  • Dave: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Dave. Hook hated Penn. He wanted him to be sent away, so he made a plan. He was going to tell lies about Penn. Next day, he spoke to the pirates.
  • Hook: I see you like jokes. You made a good joke about me yesterday. I laughed and laughed. Penn told me one about Mike. I'll whisper it. Don't tell Mike I told you.
  • Ringo Starr: And he sniggered away.
  • Pirates: Ha, ha, ha!
  • Ringo Starr: Guffawed the pirates.
  • Pirates: Mike will be cross with Penn when he knows. Let's tell him and get back at Penn for bumping us.
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed rudely at the characters as they went by. Soon Mike, Dave and Ron found out why.
  • Mike: Disgraceful.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Ron: Disgusting.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ron.
  • Dave: Despicable.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dave.
  • Dave: We cannot allow it.
  • Ringo Starr: They consulted together.
  • Dave: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Dave: He did it to us, we'll do it to him and see how he likes it.
  • Ringo Starr: Penn was tired out. The pirates had been cheeky and troublesome. He wanted a rest in the shed. The three characters barred his way.
  • Mike, Ron and Dave: Hooosh!
  • Ron: Keep out!
  • Penn: Stop fooling.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Penn.
  • Penn: I'm tired.
  • Mike: So are we.
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed the characters.
  • Mike: We're tired of you.
  • Dave: We like Hook. We don't like you.
  • Ron: You tell tales about us to the pirates.
  • Penn: I don't!
  • All: You do!
  • Penn: I don't!
  • All: You do!
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse came to stop the noise.
  • Mike: Penn called me a galloping sausage!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Mike.
  • Ron: Rusty red scrap-irons!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Ron.
  • Dave: I'm old square wheels!
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Dave.
  • Mickey: Well, Penn?
  • Ringo Starr: Penn considered.
  • Penn: I only wish sir.
  • Ringo Starr: He said gravely.
  • Penn: That I thought of those names myself. If the dome fits...
  • Mickey: (clearing throat)
  • All: He made pirates laugh at us.
  • Ringo Starr: Accused the characters. Mickey Mouse recovered. He been trying not to laugh himself.
  • Mickey: Did you, Penn.
  • Penn: Certainly not, Sir. No steam character will be as mean as that.
  • Ringo Starr: Hook lurked up.
  • Mickey: Now Hook, you heard what Penn said.
  • Hook: I can't understand it, Sir, to think that Penn of all characters. I'm dreadfully grieved, Sir, but no nothing.
  • Mickey: I see.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey. Hook squirmed and hope he didn't.
  • Mickey: I'm sorry, Penn, but you must go to Hercules' station for a while. I know he'll be glad to see him.
  • Penn: As you wish, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Penn trundled sadly away, while Hook smirked with triumph.

A Close Shave

  • Ringo Starr: Penn Zero walked sadly to Hercules' station.
  • Penn: It's not fair.
  • Ringo Starr: He complained.
  • Penn: Hook has been telling lies about me and made Mickey Mouse and all the characters think I'm horrid.
  • Ringo Starr: Hercules smiled.
  • Hercules: I know you weren't, and so does Mickey Mouse. You wait and see. Why don't you help me with these pirates?
  • Ringo Starr: Penn felt happier with Hercules, and set to work at once. The pirates were silly, heavy and noisy. The two characters have to work hard pushing and pulling all afternoon. At last, they reached the top of the hill.
  • Penn: Goodbye!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Penn, and rolled gently over the crossing to the other line. Penn love coasting down the hill, running easily with the wind whistling past. Suddenly...
  • Penn: It was the guard's warning whistle.
  • Pirates: Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed the pirates.
  • Pirates: We've broken away, we've broken away! Chase him, bump him, throw him off the rails!
  • Ringo Starr: They yelled.
  • Driver: Hurry, Penn, hurry!
  • Ringo Starr: Said the driver. They raced through Hercules' station, but the pirates were catching up.
  • Driver: As fast as we can, then they'll catch us gradually.
  • Ringo Starr: The driver was gaining control.
  • Driver: Another clear mile and we'll do it. Oh, glory, look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Ron was just pulling out on they're line through the station ahead. Any minute, there could be a crash.
  • Driver: It's up to you now, Penn.
  • Ringo Starr: Cried the driver. Penn put every ounce of wait and steam against the pirates.
  • Penn: It's too late!
  • Ringo Starr: Penn groaned and shut his eyes. He veered into a siding where Hannibal McFist had sent off shop. He was shaving a customer.
  • (Crash!)
  • Ringo Starr: The silly pirates were knocked their guard off his van, and left him far behind after he had whistled a warning. But the pirates didn't care. They were feeling very pleased with themselves.
  • Penn: Beg pardon, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Gasped Penn.
  • Penn: Excuse my intrusion.
  • Hannibal: No I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hannibal.
  • Hannibal: You frightened my customers! I'll teach you!
  • Ringo Starr: And he lathered Penn's face all other. Poor Penn! Pooh Bear was helping to pull the pirates away when Mickey Mouse arrived.
  • Hannibal: I do not like characters popping through my walls.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Hannibal.
  • Mickey: I appreciate your feelings.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey: But you must know that this character and his crew had prevented a serious accident. It was a very close...uh...shave.
  • Hannibal: Oh.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hannibal.
  • Hannibal: Oh! Excuse me.
  • Ringo Starr: He filled the basin of water to wash Penn's face.
  • Hannibal: I'm sorry. I didn't know you were been a brave hero.
  • Penn: That's all right, sir. I didn't know that either.
  • Mickey: You were very brave indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey: I'm proud of you.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse watched the rescue operation, then he had more news to Penn.
  • Mickey: And when you are properly washed and mended, you are coming home.
  • Penn: Home, sir? Do you mean the yard?
  • Mickey: Of course.
  • Penn: But, sir, they don't like me. They like Hook.
  • Mickey: Not now. I never believed Hook, so I sent him packing. The characters were sorry and want you back.
  • Ringo Starr: A few days later when he came home, there was a really rousing welcome for Penn Zero.

Better Late Than Never

  • Ringo Starr: The Disney Characters were finding life difficult. Workmen were mending the viaduct on the main line. The arches needed strenghtany. Mickey Mouse did not want to close the railway while the work was done and so repairs took a long time. The characters have to take great care when crossing the viaduct and the delay often made them late on their journey to the junction where they knew Pooh would be ready to collect his passengers. Pooh grew crosser and crosser.
  • Pooh: Time's time.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Pooh: Why should I keep my passengers waiting while Dave and Ron dawdle about all day on viaducts?
  • Dave: Don't blame me.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Dave.
  • Dave: If we hurried to cross the viaduct, it might collapsed, and then you have no passengers at all. What would you do then?
  • Pooh: Run my train on time for one thing.
  • Ringo Starr: Retorted Pooh. He hurried away before Dave could answer. Lightning McQueen was impatient too. He was time to arrived just after Pooh. His passengers found that, instead of going straight from the car till their train, they were kept waiting till Pooh arrived. Soon Lightning grew cross with Pooh.
  • Lightning: Late again!
  • Ringo Starr: He remarked as Pooh panted wearily in.
  • Lightning: We may be friends, but I thought you could go fast, Pooh. It's time we had another race. I reckon I can beat you now.
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh let off steam loudly.
  • Pooh: Rubbish!
  • Ringo Starr: He hissed fiercely.
  • Pooh: It's those main line characters. They differ about on the viaduct, and they blamed Mickey Mouse's workmen. It's just an excuse for laziness if you ask me.
  • Ringo Starr: One day, Ron was later than ever at the junction.
  • Ron: I'm sorry, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed.
  • Ron: I was held up at the station, and the viaduct made it worse.
  • Pooh: It's lucky for you I'm a guaratee connection.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Pooh. Before Ron could answer, he puffed importantly away.
  • Pooh: Come along, come along!
  • Ringo Starr: He panted to the coaches. Janna and Hope did their best but Pooh still found that he couldn't save much time. Suddenly, Pooh saw Lightning ahead. His radiator was steaming.
  • Pooh: What's the matter?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Pooh.
  • Pooh: You should be at the station by now. You're late.
  • Lightning: I feel dreadful.
  • Ringo Starr: Moaned Lightning.
  • Lightning: All upset inside and driver says he can't make me better. Thank goodness you're late too. Can you take my passengers please? They'll never get home overwise.
  • Pooh: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Agreed Pooh. He now felt sorry for Lightning, and promised to get help at the next station. Pooh set off again already he felt much more cheerful and Lightning's passengers, travelling in Janna and Hope all reached home safely. When Lightning was better he came to thank Pooh.
  • Lightning: I'm sorry I teased you about being late.
  • Pooh: That's all right.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Pooh.
  • Pooh: I'm glad I can help. There are times when being late isn't such a bad thing after all.
  • Ringo Starr: With the last cheerful greeting, the two friends went back to work.

Hopper

  • Ringo Starr: Timon and Pumbaa are animals, and have arrived from the Savannah to help Mickey Mouse, but only one animal had been expected. The animals meant well, but did cause confusion. Mickey Mouse had given them numbers, Timon 9 and Pumbaa 10, but he was still planning to send one animal home. There was Hopper in the yard that had taken a dislike to Pumbaa. Things always went wrong when he had to take it out. His trains were late and he was blamed. Pumbaa began to worry. Timon, his friend, was angry.
  • Timon: You're a muckle nuisance!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Timon.
  • Timon: It's to leave you behind I'd be wanting.
  • Hopper: You can't!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hopper.
  • Hopper: I'm essential!
  • Timon: Och are you?
  • Ringo Starr: Timon burst out.
  • Timon: You're nothing but a screeching and a noise when all set is done. Spite Pumbaa, would ya? Take that!
  • Hopper: Ow! Oh, oh!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Hopper.
  • Timon: There's more coming should you misbehave.
  • Ringo Starr: Hopper behave better after that. Until one day, Timon had an accident. The rails were slippery. He couldn't stop in time. Mickey Mouse was most annyoed.
  • Mickey Mouse: I am disappointed, Timon. I didn't expect such, er, clumsiness from you. I had decided to send Pumbaa back and keep you.
  • Timon: I'm sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Timon.
  • Mickey Mouse: I should think so, too. You have upset my arrangements. Now Ron will have to help you with the goods work, while you have your tender mended. Brad won't like that.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse was right. Ron grumbled dreadfully.
  • Pumbaa: Anyone would think.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pumbaa.
  • Pumbaa: That Timon had had his accident on purpose. I heard tell about a character and some tar wagons.
  • Ron: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Ron.
  • Ron: It's not funny.
  • Ringo Starr: He didn't like to be remind about his own accident.
  • Pumbaa: Well, well, well!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pumbaa.
  • Pumbaa: Surely, Ron, it wasn't you. You didn't say.
  • Ringo Starr: Ron didn't say. He slouched sulkily away.
  • Hopper: He's cross!
  • Ringo Starr: Sniggered Hopper.
  • Hopper: We'll try to make him crosser still!
  • Pirates: Hold back!
  • Ringo Starr: Giggled the pirates to each other. Ron did his best, but he was exhausted when they reached Hercules' station. Luckily, Pumbaa was there.
  • Ron: Help me up the hill, please!
  • Ringo Starr: Panted Ron.
  • Ron: These pirates are playing tricks.
  • Pumbaa: We'll show them.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pumbaa. Slowly but surely, the snorting characters forced the pirates up the hill. But Ron was losing steam.
  • Ron: I can't do it, I can't do it!
  • Pumbaa: Leave it to me!
  • Ringo Starr: Shouted Pumbaa. The guard was anxious.
  • Guard: Go steady! Hopper's breaking!
  • Ringo Starr: Hopper was in pieces. No one had been hurt, and soon Hercules came to clear the mess. Mickey Mouse was on board.
  • Mickey Mouse: I might have known it would be Pumbaa.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Hercules: Pumbaa was grand, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: Ron had no steam left, but Pumbaa worked hard enough for three. I heard him from my yard.
  • Mickey Mouse: Two would have been enough.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey Mouse.
  • Mickey Mouse: I want to be fair, Pumbaa, but I don't know. I really don't know.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse was making up his mind about something, but that's another story.

The Deputation

  • Ringo Starr: Snow came early to Disneyland. It was heavier than usual. Most characters hate snow. Timon and Pumbaa were used to it. Couple back to back with the van between their tenders and the snowplough in their fronts, they set to work. They puffed backwards and forward patrolling the line. Generally, the snow slipped away fiercely, but sometimes they found deeper drifts. Presently, they came to a drift which was larger than most. They charged it, and were just backing for another try when...
  • Pumbaa: Losh sakes, Timon! It's Dave! Dinna fash yourself, Dave! Wait a while! We'll help you out!
  • Ringo Starr: Dave was very grateful. He saw all was not well. The animals were looking glum. They told him Mickey Mouse was returning soon.
  • Pumbaa: He'll send us away for sure.
  • Todd: It's a shame.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • Mike: A lot of nonsense about a broken signalbox.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Mike.
  • Ron: That Hopper too.
  • Ringo Starr: Put in Ron.
  • Ron: Good riddance. That's what I say.
  • Dave: They were splendid in the snow.
  • Ringo Starr: Added Dave.
  • Dave: It isn't fair.
  • Ringo Starr: They all agreed that something must be done, but none knew what. Todd decided to talk to Hercules about it.
  • Hercules: What you need...
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: ...is a deputation.
  • Ringo Starr: He explained what that was. Todd ran back quickly.
  • Todd: Hercules says we need a depostation.
  • Mike: Of course.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Mike: The question is...
  • Dave: What is a desperation?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Dave.
  • Todd: It's when characters tell Mickey Mouse something's wrong.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Todd.
  • Penn: Did you say tell Mickey Mouse?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Penn thoughtfully. There was a long silence.
  • Mike: I purpose.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike.
  • Mike: That Todd be our...um...disputation.
  • Todd: Hi?!
  • Ringo Starr: Squeaked Todd.
  • Todd: I can't!
  • Dave: Rubbish, Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dave.
  • Dave: It's easy.
  • Mike: That's settled then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mike. Poor Todd wished it wasn't.
  • Mickey: Hello, Todd. It's nice to be back.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd jumped.
  • Todd: Uh, yes sir, please sir.
  • Mickey: You look nervous, Todd. What's the matter?
  • Todd: Please, sir, they made me a desperation, sir, to speak to you sir. I don't like it, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse pondered.
  • Mickey: Do you mean a deputation, Todd?
  • Todd: Yes sir, please sir. It's Timon and Pumbaa, sir. They say, sir, that if you send them away, sir, well, they'll be turned to scrap, sir. That would be dreadful, sir. Please, sir, don't send them away.
  • Mickey: Thank you, Todd. That will do.
  • Ringo Starr: Later, Mickey Mouse spoke to the characters.
  • Mickey: I had a deputation. I understand your feelings, but I do not approve of interference.
  • Ringo Starr: He paused impressively.
  • Mickey: Timon and Pumbaa, I hear that your work in the snow was good. You shall have a new coat of paint.
  • Ringo Starr: The animals were surprised.
  • Timon: Thank you, sir.
  • Mickey: But your names will be painted on you. We'll have no more mistakes.
  • Pumbaa: Thank you, sir. Does this mean that the both of us?
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse smiled.
  • Mickey: It means...
  • Ringo Starr: But the rest of his speech was drowned in a delighted chorus of cheers and whistles. The animals were here to stay.

Pooh Comes To Breakfast

  • Ringo Starr: Winnie The Pooh has worked his route for many years, and knows it very well.
  • Driver: You know just where to stop, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed his driver.
  • Driver: You could almost manage it without you.
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh had become concided. He didn't realize his driver was joking. Later, he boasted to the others.
  • Pooh: Driver says I don't need him now.
  • Todd: Don't be so daft.
  • Ringo Starr: Snorted Todd.
  • Kuzco: I never go without my driver.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco earnestly.
  • Penn: I'd be frightened.
  • Pooh: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Boasted Pooh.
  • Pooh: I'm not scared.
  • Kuzco: You never dare.
  • Pooh: I would then. You'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: The next day the firelighter came. Pooh drowzed comfortably as the warmth spread into his boiler. Todd and Kuzco were still asleep. Pooh suddenly remembered.
  • Pooh: Silly stick-in-the-muds!
  • Ringo Starr: He chuckled.
  • Pooh: I'll show them! Driver says I can manage without him. I'll just go out and then I'll stop and "wheesh!" That'll make them jump.
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh thought he was being clever and really he was only moving because a careless cleaner had medal with his controls. He soon found his mistake. He tried to "wheesh!", but he couldn't. He tried to stop, but he couldn't. He just kept rolling along. He didn't dare what it look what's coming next. There was Grim's house! Grim was about to have breakfast.
  • Pooh: Horrors!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Pooh, and shut his eyes. The house rocked, broken glass tinkled, plaster was everywhere. Pooh had collected the bush on his travels. He peered into his room through his leaves. He couldn't speak. Grim was furious. His wife picked up her plate.
  • Hildy: You miserable bear!
  • Ringo Starr: She scolded.
  • Hildy: Just look what you've done to our breakfast! Now I'll shall have to cook some more!
  • Ringo Starr: She banged the door. More plaster fell. This time it fell on Pooh. Pooh felt depressed. Workmen propped out the house with strong poles and layed rails through the garden. Meanwhile, Timon and Pumbaa arrived.
  • Pumbaa: Dinna fash yourself, Pooh. We'll soon have you back on the rails.
  • Ringo Starr: They laughed. Timon and Pumbaa puffing hard manage to haul Pooh back to safety. Bits of fencing, the bush, and a broken window frame festooned was front, which was badly twisted. Timon and Pumbaa laughed and left him. Pooh was indisgraced. There was worst to come.
  • Mickey Mouse: You are a very naughty bear.
  • Pooh: I know, Sir. I'm sorry, Sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh's voice was muffled behind his bush.
  • Mickey Mouse: You must go to the works and have your worn parts mended. It will be a long job.
  • Pooh: Yes, Sir.
  • Mickey Mouse: Meanwhile, Fiona Von Steig will do your work.
  • Pooh: F-F-F-Fiona, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Pooh spluttered.
  • Mickey Mouse: Yes, Pooh. Girls always stay in their sheds till they are wanted. Girls never gallivanting off to breakfast in Grim's houses.

Fiona Von Steig

  • Ringo Starr: Todd and Kuzco were worried. Pooh's recent accident had caused a great deal of trouble, and Mickey Mouse was waiting for them with important news.
  • Mickey: Here...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Mickey: ...is Fiona Von Steig, who has come to help while Pooh is...indisposed.
  • Todd: Please, sir?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Todd.
  • Todd: Will she go, sir, when Pooh comes back, sir?
  • Mickey: That depends.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey Mouse.
  • ​Mickey: Meanwhile, however long she stays, I hope you will both make her welcome and comfortable.
  • Kuzco: Yes, sir, we'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the characters.
  • Mickey: Good. Run along now and show her the shed. She will want a rest after her journey.
  • Ringo Starr: Fiona was hard to pleased. She shuddered at the engine shed.
  • Fiona: This is dreadfully smelly. I'm highly sprung, and anything smelly is bad for my swerves.
  • Ringo Starr: Next, they tried the carriage shed.
  • Fiona: This is better.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Fiona.
  • Fiona: But whatever is that rubbish?
  • Ringo Starr: The rubbish turned out to be Janna, Hope and Jasmine who were most offended.
  • Janna: We won't stay here to be insulted.
  • Ringo Starr: They fumed. Todd and Kuzco had to take them away and spend half the night soothing their hurt feelings. The characters woke next morning feeling exhausted. Fiona, on the other hand, felt bright and cheerful.
  • Fiona: Oooh! Oooh!
  • Ringo Starr: She tooted, as she came out of the yard and back to the station.
  • Fiona: Look at me.
  • Ringo Starr: She purred to the passengers.
  • Fiona: I'm the latest girl, highly sprung and right up to date. You won't want Pooh's bumpy old Janna and Hope now.
  • Ringo Starr: The passengers waited for Fiona to start, but she didn't. She saw that the milk van was about to be coupled to her and was most indigment.
  • Fiona: Do they except me to pull that?
  • Driver: Surely.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Driver: You can pull one van.
  • Fiona: I won't.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Fiona.
  • ​Fiona: Todd can do it. He loves messing about with pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: She began to shudder violently.
  • Driver: Nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said her driver.
  • Driver: Come on now, back down.
  • Ringo Starr: Fiona lurched backwards. She was so cross that she blew a fuse.
  • Fiona: Told you.
  • Ringo Starr: She said and stopped. Everyone argued with her but it was no use.
  • Fiona: It's fitter's orders.
  • Ringo Starr: She said.
  • Passengers: What is?
  • Fiona: My fitter's a very nice man. He comes every week and exames me carefully. Fiona, he says, never never pull. You're highly sprung and pulling is bad for your swerves. So that's how it is.
  • Ringo Starr: Finished Fiona.
  • Stationmaster: Stuff and nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the stationmaster.
  • Shunter: I can't understand.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the shunter.
  • Shunter: Whatever made Mickey Mouse send us such a feeble...
  • Fiona: Feeble? Feeble?!
  • Ringo Starr: Spluttered Fiona.
  • ​Fiona: Let me...
  • Passengers: Stop arguing!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled the passengers.
  • Passengers: We're late already.
  • Ringo Starr: So they uncoupled the van, and Fiona purred away feeling very pleased with herself. She can now enjoyed her journey.
  • Fiona: That's a good story.
  • Ringo Starr: She chuckled.
  • Fiona: I'll do just what work I choose, and no more.
  • Ringo Starr: But she said it to herself.

Todd's Predicament

  • Ringo Starr: Fiona Von Steig's work in the countryside was full of surprises. But she was frightened of bulls and cows and she remained very lazy and stubborn. One day, Kuzco brought Jasmine to the station where Todd was grumpily sorting.
  • Kuzco: Hello, Todd. I see Fiona's left the milk behind again.
  • Todd: I had to make a special journey within I suppose. Anyone would think I've nothing to do.
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Todd.
  • Kuzco: Tell you what.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: I'll take the milk, you fetch my pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: Their drivers and stationmaster agreed. Todd had never been to the quarry before. He began ordering the pirates about.
  • Todd: Hurry along.
  • Ringo Starr: He said. The pirates grumbled to each other.
  • Pirates: This is Kuzco's place! Todd's got no right to poke his head in here and push us around.
  • Ringo Starr: They whispered and pass the word.
  • Pirates: Pay Todd out! Pay Todd out!
  • ​Todd: Come along.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Todd.
  • Todd: No nonsense.
  • Pirates: We'll give him nonsense.
  • Ringo Starr: Giggled the pirates. But they followed so quietly that Todd thought they were under control. Suddenly, they saw a notice ahead: All Trains Stop To Pin Down Brakes.
  • Todd: Peep peep! Brakes, guard, please!
  • Ringo Starr: But before he could check them the Beedrill surged ahead.
  • Pirates: On! On!
  • Ringo Starr: They cried.
  • Todd: Help! Help!
  • Ringo Starr: Whistled Todd. The man on duty at the crossing rushed to warn traffic with his red flag but was too late to switch Todd to the runaway sidings. Frantically trying to grip the railsTodd slid into the yard.
  • Todd: Peep! Peep! Look out!
  • (Todd crashed into the break van)
  • Ringo Starr: The break van was in smithereens. Todd's driver and fireman had jumped clear but Todd was stranded. Next day, Mickey Mouse arrived. Kuzco and Fiona had helped to clear the wreckage but Todd remained on his perch of pirates.
  • Mickey: We must now try.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey.
  • Mickey: To run a branch line with Kuzco and a girl. You have put us in an awkward predicament.
  • ​Todd: I am sorry, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Todd.
  • Mickey: You can stay here till we are ready. Perhaps it will teach you to be more careful with pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd sighed. The pirates groaned beneath his feet. He quite understood about awkward predicaments. Mickey Mouse spoke severly to Fiona too.
  • Mickey: My characters work hard. I send lazy characters away.
  • Ringo Starr: Fiona was ashamed.
  • Mickey: However, Kuzco says you worked hard after Todd's accident, so you shall have another chance.
  • Fiona: Thank you, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Fiona.
  • Fiona: I will work hard, sir. Kuzco says he'll help me.
  • Mickey: Excellent. What Kuzco doesn't know about branch line problems isn't worth knowing. But our Kuzco's an experienced character.
  • Ringo Starr: Next day, Pooh came back, and Todd was sent to be mended. Janna and Hope were delighted to see Pooh again and he took them to a run at once. All were now friends, and Kuzco has taught Fiona a great deal. She shooed a cow the other day all by herself. That show's you, doesn't it?

The Bearsel

  • Ringo Starr: Chip and Dale are a pair of chipmunks. Each has four feet and tiny chimney and dome and a small squat cab. Their pirates are filled with China Clay. It is needed for pottery, paper, paint and many other things. The chipmunks were now kept busy pulling the pirates for characters on the main line and for ships in the harbour. One morning, they arranged some pirates and went away for more. They returned to find them all gone. The chipmunks were most surprised. Their drivers examine the patch of oil.
  • Driver: That's a bearsel.
  • Ringo Starr: They said.
  • Chip: It's a what'll?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Chip
  • Dale: A bearsel, I think.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied Dale.
  • Dale: There's a notice about them in our shed.
  • Chip: Coughs and sneezles spread bearsels.
  • Dale: You had a cough in your smokebox yesterday. It's your fault the monkeysel came.
  • Chip: It isn't!
  • Dale: It is!
  • Drivers: Stop arguing, you two.
  • Ringo Starr: Laughed their drivers.
  • Drivers: Let's go and rescue our pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: Chip and Dale were horrified.
  • Chip: But the bearsel will magic us away like the pirates.
  • Drivers: He won't magic us.
  • Ringo Starr: Replied their drivers.
  • Drivers: We're more likely magic him. Listen, he doesn't know you're chipmunks. So we'll take away your names and numbers and then this is what we'll do.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffing hard, the chipmunks set off on their journey to find the bear. They were looking forward to playing tricks on him. Creeping into the yard, they found the bear on a siding with missing pirates. Dale hid behind, but Chip went bodly alongside. The bear looked up.
  • Baloo: Do you mind?
  • Chip: Yes.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Chip.
  • Chip: I do. I want my pirates please.
  • Baloo: These are mine.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the bear.
  • Baloo: Go away.
  • Ringo Starr: Chip pretended to be frightened.
  • Chip: You're a big bully.
  • Ringo Starr: He whimpered.
  • Chip: You'll be sorry.
  • Ringo Starr: He ran back and hid behind the pirates on the other side. Dale now came forward.
  • Dale: Pirate stealer!
  • Ringo Starr: Hissed Dale. He ran away too. Chip took his place. This went on and on till the bear's eyes nearly popped out.
  • Baloo: Stop! You're making me giddy.
  • Ringo Starr: The two characters gazed at him.
  • Baloo: Are there two of you?
  • Chip: Yes, we're the chipmunks.
  • Baloo: I might have known it.
  • Ringo Starr: Just then, Hercules bustled up.
  • Hercules: Chip and Dale, why are you playing here?
  • Chip: We're not playing.
  • Ringo Starr: Protested Chip.
  • Dale: We're rescuing our pirates.
  • Ringo Starr: Squeaked Dale.
  • Dale: Even you don't take our pirates without asking, but this bearsel did.
  • Hercules: There's no cause to be rude.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules severly.
  • Hercules: This bear is a Metropolitan Vickers, bear electric type 2.
  • Ringo Starr: The chipmunks were most impressed.
  • Chip: We're sorry, mister...er...
  • Baloo: Never mind.
  • Ringo Starr: The bear smiled.
  • Baloo: Call me Baloo. I'm sorry I didn't understand about the pirates.
  • Hercules: That's all right then.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • ​Hercules: Now off you go, Chip and Dale. Fetch Baloo's pirates, then you take this lot. There's no real harm in them.
  • Ringo Starr: He said to Baloo.
  • Hercules: But they're mattening at times.
  • Ringo Starr: Baloo chuckled.
  • Baloo: Mattening...
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Baloo: ...is the word.

Wrong Road

  • Ringo Starr: Pooh's route is important and so is Hercules'. ut their tracks and bridges are not so strong as those on the main line. Mickey Mouse does not allow the heavier main line characters like Mike to run on them. But one day, the way Mike was talking, he would have tought Mickey Mouse had given this order for quite another reason.
  • Mike: It's not fair!
  • Ringo Starr: Grumbled Mike.
  • Hercules: What isn't fair?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Hercules.
  • Mike: Letting branch line diesels pull main line trains.
  • Hercules: Never mind, Mike. I'm sure Baloo will let you pull his pirates sometimes.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike spluttered.
  • Mike: I won't pull Baloo's dirty pirates. I wont run on branch lines.
  • Hercules: Why not it will be a nice change.
  • Mike: Mickey Mouse would never approve.
  • Ringo Starr: Huffed Mike.
  • Mike: Branch lines are vulgar.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike puffed away. Hercules chuckled and followed him to the station. Every evening the two characters pulled two fast trains from the station. Mike always leaves first with an express for the main line. Hercules follows five minutes later with his train for the branch line. Usually everything runs like clockwork. But tonight there was trouble. A Lady in a green floppy hat was saying goodbye to a friend. It was nearly time for Mike to start. The fireman looked back towards the guard's van and saw something green waving.
  • Fireman: Right away, mate!
  • Ringo Starr: He thought the guard had waved his flag. Mike started. Leaving luggage, his passengers and the guard all standing on the platform. Everyone was very surprised and cross. To make matters worse, by the time Mike had been stopped and brought back, Hercules was already late with his train. So now, he set off first. But the signalman at the junction wasn't told about the change. By mistake, he sent Hercules along the main line. Mike was sent along the branch and arrived cold and cross on one of the sidings near the harbour. Next morning, Chip and Dale peeped into the yard. There were no pirates for them but they didn't mind that. Teasing Mike will be much better fun.
  • Chip: What's that?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Chip.
  • Dale: Shh!
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Dale.
  • Dale: It's Mike.
  • Chip: It looks like Mike, but it can't be. Mike never comes on the branch lines. He thinks they're vulgar.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike pretended he hadn't heard.
  • Dale: If it isn't Mike.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Dale.
  • Dale: It's just a pile of Old Iron.
  • Chip: Which we better take it to the scrapyard.
  • Dale: No Chip, this lots used for scrap. We'll take it to the harbour and dump it in the sea.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike was alarmed.
  • Mike: I am Mike. Stop, stop!
  • Ringo Starr: When Baloo suddenly arrived, Mike thought him the most beautiful sight he had ever been.
  • Mike: Baloo, my dear character, save me.
  • Ringo Starr: Baloo quickly sized up the situation and threathened to take away the Beedrill he had brought for Chip and Dale. This made the twins behave at once. Mike thought he was wonderful.
  • Mike: Those little demons. How do you do it?
  • Baloo: Ah well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Baloo.
  • Baloo: It's just a knack.
  • Ringo Starr: Mike still believes that Baloo saved his life. But he knows the twins were only teasing. Don't we?

Hercules' Exploit

  • Ringo Starr: Lightning McQueen was giving some visitors a tour of Disneyland. It was their last afternoon, and Hercules was preparing to take them to meet Chip and Dale. He found it hard to start the heavy train.
  • Dave: Did you see him straining?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Dave.
  • Ron: Positively painful.
  • Ringo Starr: Remarked Ron.
  • Mike: Just pathetic.
  • Ringo Starr: Grunted Mike.
  • Mike: He should give up and be preserved before it's too late.
  • Penn: Shut up!
  • Ringo Starr: Burst out Penn.
  • Penn: You're all jealous. Hercules' better than any of you.
  • Baloo: You're right, Penn.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Baloo.
  • Baloo: Hercules' old, but he'll surprised us all.
  • Hercules: I've done it, we're off! I've done it, we're off!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules, as he finally puffed out of the station. Chip and Dale were delighted to see the visitors. They loved being photographed. Later, they take the party to the China Clay Works in the break van special. Everyone have a splendid time, and the visitors were most impressed. Then, Hercules took the visitors home. On the way, the weather changed. Wind and rain buffered in Hercules. His sanding gear failed, and his fireman rode in front dropping sand on the rails by hand. Suddenly, Hercules' feet slipped fiercely and with a shrieking crack, something broke. The crew inspected the damage. Repairs took some time.
  • Driver: One of your crank pins broke, Hercules.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: We've taken your side rods off. Now you're like an old fashioned man. Can you get these people home? They must start back tonight?
  • Hercules: I'll try, sir.
  • Ringo Starr: Promised Hercules. Hercules puffed and pulled his hardest. But his feet kept slipping, and he couldn't start the heavy train. The passengers were anxious. The driver, fireman and guard went along the train, making adjustments between the coaches.
  • Driver: We've loosened the couplings, Hercules. Now you can pick up your coaches one by one, just as you do with pirates.
  • Hercules: That'll be much easier.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Hercules.
  • Hercules: Come on!
  • Ringo Starr: He puffed, and moved cautiously forward. The first coach moving help to start the second and the second help the third.
  • Hercules: I've done it, I've done it!
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Hercules.
  • Driver: Steady, boy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said his driver.
  • Driver: Well done, boy! You've got them, you've got them!
  • Ringo Starr: And he listened happily to Hercules' steady beat, as he forced slowly but surely ahead. At last, battered, wearly, but unbeaten, Hercules steamed in. Dave was waiting for the visitors with the special train.
  • Hercules: Peep peep!
  • Ringo Starr: Mickey Mouse angrily pointed to the clock, but excited passengers cheered and thanked Hercules, his driver and fireman. Penn and Baloo saw to it that Hercules was left in peace. Mike and Ron remain respectfully silent.

Ghost Kid

  • (Owl hooting twice)
  • (Ghostly air horn blows)
  • Todd: And every year on the date of the accident, it runs again as a warning to others, plunging into the gap, shrieking like a lost soul.
  • Pooh: Todd, what are you talking about?
  • Todd: The ghost train. Driver saw it last night.
  • Pooh and Kuzco: Where?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Pooh and Kuzco.
  • Todd: He didn't say, oh it makes my feet wobble to think of it.
  • Pooh: Pooh!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: You're just a silly little boy. I'm not scared.
  • Todd: Pooh didn't believe in ghosts.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh next morning. His driver laughed.
  • Driver: Neither do I. It was only a pretend ghost on television.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd was disappointed. That evening, he came back from the harbour. Todd knew where he was, even in the dark.
  • Todd: Crowe's Farm Crossing. We shan't be long now.
  • Ringo Starr: He liked running at night. The rails hummed and the signal light shoned green. But a broken cart load of lime lay ahead. Sam the Farmer had just gone for help.
  • (A loud crash is heard as Todd hits the cart)
  • Ringo Starr: Todd broke the cart to smithereens. Lime flew everywhere. He puffed quickly to the nearest signal box. Todd's driver explained what had happened.
  • Signalman: I'll see to it.
  • Ringo Starr: Said the Signalman.
  • Signalman: But you better clean Todd, or people will think he's a ghost.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd chuckled.
  • Todd: Do let's pretend I'm a ghost and scared Pooh. That'll teach him to see I'm a silly little boy.
  • Ringo Starr: Kuzco promised to help. Pooh was being oiled up for his evening train.
  • Kuzco: Todd's had an accident!
  • Ringo Starr: Cried Kuzco.
  • Pooh: Poor boy.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: Botheration! That means I'll be late!
  • Kuzco: They've cleared the line for you, but there's something worse.
  • Pooh: Out with it, Kuzco, I can't wait all evening.
  • Kuzco: I've just seen something.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: It looked like Todd's ghost. It said it was coming here to warn us.
  • Pooh: Pooh! Who cares? Don't be frightened, Kuzco. I'll take care of you.
  • (We can hear a loud brake sound)
  • Todd: (ghostly voice) Peep, peep, peep-peep-peep, peep! Let me in, let me in!
  • Ringo Starr: Wailed Todd.
  • Kuzco: No, no! Not by the smoke on my chimney chim chim!
  • Todd: (ghostly voice) I'll chuff and I'll puff and I'll break your door in!
  • (The doors open and reveal Todd all along)
  • Pooh: Oh dear!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained Pooh.
  • Pooh: It's getting late. Oh, I have no idea. Oh, I must find Janna and Hope.
  • Ringo Starr: It was morning when Pooh returned.
  • Kuzco: Where have you been?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Kuzco.
  • Pooh: Ah well.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: I knew you be sad about Todd, and I, um, I didn't like to intrude. I slept in the goods shed and...
  • (A ghostly whistle is heard)
  • Poohh: Oh, sorry, can't stop. Gotta see a coach about a train.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd was non a worse for his adventure, and was still enjoying himself enormously. He had heard everything.
  • Todd: Well, well, well! What do you know about that?
  • Jackie: Anyone would think...
  • Ringo Starr: Chuckled Kuzco.
  • Kuzco: ...that our Pooh Bear was just seen a ghost!

Woolly Bear

  • Ringo Starr: In summer, the gangers cut the long grass on the lineslide raking it into heaps to dry in the sun. At this time of year, Todd stops where they have been cutting. The men load up his empty wagons and he pulls them to the station. Kuzco then takes them to the hills for the farmers to feed their stock.
  • Todd: Wheeeeeeeesh!
  • Ringo Starr: Todd gave a ghostly whistle.
  • Todd: Don't be frightened, Pooh.
  • Ringo Starr: He laughed.
  • Todd: It's only me!
  • Pooh: Your ugly fizz is enough to frighten anyone.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: You're like...
  • Todd: Ugly indeed. I'm...
  • Pooh: A green caterpillar with red stripes.
  • Ringo Starr: Continued Pooh firmly.
  • Pooh: You crawl like one too.
  • Todd: I don't!
  • Pooh: Who's been late every afternoon this week?
  • Todd: It's the hay.
  • Pooh: I can't help that.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pooh.
  • Pooh: Time's time, and Mickey Mouse relies on me to keep it. I can't if you crawl in the hay till all hours.
  • Todd: Green caterpillar indeed.
  • Ringo Starr: Fumed Todd. He set off to collect some hay to take to the harbour.
  • Todd: Everyone says I'm handsome, or at least nearly anyone. Anyway, my curves are better than Pooh's corners. Pooh says I'm always late.
  • Ringo Starr: He grumbled.
  • Todd: I'm never late, or at least only a few minutes. What's that to Pooh? He can always catch up time farther on.
  • Ringo Starr: All the same, he and his driver decided to start home early. Then came trouble.
  • (The crate of treacle appears held by a crane it falls down and lands on Todd with a loud Wham!)
  • Ringo Starr: A crate of treacle was upset all over Todd. Todd was cross. He was still sticky when he puffed away. The wind was blowing fiercely.
  • Driver: Look at that!
  • Ringo Starr: Explained the driver. The wind caught the piled hay, tossing it up and over the track. The line climbed here.
  • Driver: Take a run at it, Todd.
  • Ringo Starr: His driver advised. Todd gathered speed. But the hay made the rails slippery and his feet wouldn't grip. Time after time he stalled with spinning feet and had to wait until the line ahead was cleared before he could start again. Everyone was waiting. Pooh seethed impatiently.
  • Pooh: Ten minutes late. I warned him. Passengers will complain and Mickey Mouse...
  • Ringo Starr: Then they all saw Todd. They laughed and shouted.
  • (Passengers laughing)
  • Todd: Sorry I'm late.
  • Ringo Starr: Todd panted.
  • Pooh: Look what's crawled out of the hay!
  • Ringo Starr: Teased Pooh.
  • Todd: What's wrong?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Todd.
  • Pooh: Talk about hairy caterpillars.
  • Ringo Starr: Puffed Pooh.
  • Pooh: It's worth been late to have seen you.
  • Ringo Starr: When Todd got home, his driver showed him what he looked like in the mirror.
  • Todd: Bust my buffers! No wonder they all laughed. I'm just look like a woolly bear. Please clean me before Kuzco comes.
  • Ringo Starr: But it was no good. Pooh told Kuzco all about it. Instead of talking about sensible things like playing ghosts, Pooh and Kuzco made jokes about woolly bear caterpillars, and other creatures which crawled about in hay. They laughed a lot, but Todd thought they were really being very silly indeed!

Pooh and The Missing Christmas Tree

  • Ringo Starr: It was two days before Christmas. Many children were expected in Disneyland. All the characters were busy with the final preparations. Mickey Mouse wanted this year's carol party to be an extra special celebration. Mickey Mouse was now waiting impatiently for Pooh.
  • Mickey: Quickly now.
  • Ringo Starr: He said.
  • Mickey: Our Christmas tree has arrived just in time. I want you to fetch it, Pooh. Penn can look after Janna and Hope until you get back.
  • Pooh: Will we be able to sing carols too?
  • Ringo Starr: Asked Pooh.
  • Mickey: We'll see.
  • Ringo Starr: Promised Mickey.
  • Pooh: It would be nice to sing carols again.
  • Ringo Starr: Sighed Pooh as he set off on his important mission. Pooh collected the tree safely but large snowdrifts lay ahead.
  • Pooh: I mustn't be late.
  • Ringo Starr: He thought.
  • Pooh: Mickey Mouse is relying on me.
  • Ringo Starr: Whistling bravely, Pooh tried to move. But he couldn't. There was worse to come. Poor Pooh was snowed under. Meanwhile the other characters waited and waited. They were grumbling about Pooh for being late.
  • Mickey: Silence!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Mickey Mouse.
  • Mickey: Pooh left the works safely, but snow had brought the telephone lines down. We must assume he is stranded.
  • Ringo Starr: The characters now felt sorry for Pooh and cold but confident the animals set off to the rescue. Suddenly, they came to a drift that was deeper than the rest.
  • Pooh: Help! Help!
  • Timon: Hush!
  • Ringo Starr: Said Timon.
  • Timon: I can hear something.
  • Pumbaa: Probably the wind.
  • Ringo Starr: Said Pumbaa.
  • Pooh: Help!
  • Timon: No listen.
  • Ringo Starr: Insisted Timon.
  • Pooh: Over here!
  • Timon: Oh, it's Pooh Bear. Come on the poor wee trainer must be frozen to the frames in there.
  • Ringo Starr: When the workmen arrived, it took some time to decide how to dig away the drifts of snow. Pooh's driver and fireman, who had taken shelter at a nearby cottage, joined the rescue. At last, Pooh and the precious Christmas tree were free from the snowdrift. Then they set off once more to finish their long journey. Mickey Mouse greeted them warmly.
  • Mickey: As a reward for all your hard work, you may go and enjoy the carols. Be quick now.
  • Ringo Starr: At the big station, all was soon ready.
  • Mickey: One, two, three!
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly like magic the station was flooded with lights.
  • Mickey: Ladies and gentlemen and children, I give you three cheers for Winnie The Pooh and all his friends who had made this occasion possible.
  • Ringo Starr: Suddenly, there was a strange whirring sound. Todd and Kuzco smiled, they knew who it was. With landing lights shining brightly, Launchpad McQuack touched down gently in the snow. Bringing the greatest surprise of all, Father Christmas. Everyone cheered and the party began.
  • Pooh: It's no fun getting stuck in the snow.
  • Ringo Starr: Whispered Pooh to Todd.
  • Pooh: But it was worth it for this party. Happy Christmas, Todd. Happy Christmas, everyone.
