Narrator: "Every day, King Acorn came to the station to see the maniacs."

King Acorn: "Hello."

Narrator: "He always said to Yakko."

King Acorn: "Remember, don't be impatient, Yakko. You can never be as strong and fast as Mr. Plotz, but you can be a really useful rabbit. Don't let the silly Perfectoids tease you.

Narrator: "There were lots of Perfectoids, and Yakko worked very hard pushing and pulling them into place. There was also a small trailer and two strange things his animator called cranes."

Sawtooth: "That's the ambulance."

Narrator: "He told Buster."

Sawtooth: "The cranes are for lifting heavy things, like maniacs, swans, and Perfectoids."

Narrator: "One day, Yakko was in the yard. Suddenly, he heard a pigeon screaming."

Pesto: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "A pigeon came rushing through, much too fast. The pigeon was Pesto, and he was frightened. His webbed feet were on fire."

Pesto: "They're pushing me, they're pushing me!"

Narrator: "He panted."

Perfectoids: "On, on, on!"

Narrator: "Laughed the Perectoids.

Still screaming,"

Pesto: "Help! Help!"

Narrator: "Poor Pesto disappeared."

Yakko: "I'd like to teach those Perfectoids a lesson."

Narrator: "Said Yakko.

Soon came the alarm."

Sawtooth: "Pesto's off the line, the ambulance, quickly!"

Narrator: "Yakko grabbed the ambulance, and off they went.

Yakko worked his hardest."

Yakko: "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "He puffed. He wasn't pretending to be like Mr. Plotz; he really meant it."

Yakko: "Bother those Perfectoids and their tricks. I hope poor Pesto isn't hurt."

Narrator: "Pesto's animator was feeling him all over, to see if he was hurt."

Red Max: "Never mind, Pesto."

Narrator: "He said."

Red Max:" It wasn't your fault. It was those webbed feet they gave you. We always said they were no good."

Narrator: "Yakko pushed the ambulance alongside. Then he pulled the unhurt perfectoids out of the way."

Perfectoids: "Oh, dear, oh, dear!"

Narrator: "They groaned."

Yakko: "Serves you right, serves you right!"

Narrator: "Puffed Yakko.

He was hard at work, puffing backwards and forwards all day."

Yakko: "This will teach you a lesson. This will teach you a lesson."

Narrator: "He told the Perfectoids.

And they answered,"

Perfectoids: "Yes it will, yes it will."

Narrator: "They left the broken Perfectoids, then with two cranes, they put Pesto back on the line.

He tried to move, but he couldn't, so Yakko helped him back home.

King Acorn was waiting anxiously for them."

King Acorn: "Well, Yakko,"

Narrator: "He said,"

King Acorn: "I've heard all about it, and I'm very pleased with you. You're a really useful maniac.

Pesto shall have some proper feet and a new coat of feathers, and you shall have a forest all to yourself."

Yakko: "Oh, thank you, sir!"

Narrator: "Said Yakko.

Now Yakko is as happy as can be. He has a forest, and two ducks called Elmyra and Fifi La Fume. He puffs proudly backwards and forwards with them all day.

He is never lonely. Dr. Otto and Ralph stop quite often and tell him the news.

Mr. Plotz is always in a hurry, but never forgets to whistle to Yakko, and Yakko always whistles, in return."
