CBeebies Bedtime Story.

0:00:030:00:05

Hi, I'm Mark.

0:00:060:00:08

And guess what - I'm here to read you a bedtime story.

0:00:080:00:12

It's a story about a dog,

0:00:120:00:14

a dog called Hal.

0:00:140:00:17

And Hal has a special blanket that he loves very much.

0:00:170:00:21

The story is called Hot Dog Hal,

0:00:210:00:23

and it's written by Peter Bently

0:00:230:00:26

and illustrated by Tom McLaughlin.

0:00:260:00:29

Hal loved his blanket, there's no doubt about it.

0:00:290:00:32

He wore it all day and went nowhere without it.

0:00:320:00:36

He loved it, although he felt boiling and flustered

0:00:360:00:39

and looked like a sausage all covered in mustard.

0:00:390:00:42

"In fact," chuckled Buster McNally, his pal,

0:00:420:00:46

"from now on, I'm calling you Hot Dog Hal."

0:00:460:00:50

Hal wore his blanket for strolling and chasing.

0:00:500:00:53

BUCK-BUCK!

0:00:530:00:54

He wore it for catching and snatching and racing.

0:00:540:00:58

He wore it for digging up big, tasty bones

0:00:580:01:00

with Buster and Tootsie and young Nipper Jones.

0:01:000:01:04

"Hey, Hot Dog," said Buster,

0:01:040:01:06

"you look like you're stewing."

0:01:060:01:09

"I'm fine," panted Hal, as he carried on chewing.

0:01:090:01:13

"I've had this old blanket since I was a pup.

0:01:130:01:16

"I know it's too hot, but I won't give it up."

0:01:160:01:19

Hal wore his blanket

0:01:190:01:21

for trips to the zoo.

0:01:210:01:23

If he went to the seaside,

0:01:230:01:24

along it went, too.

0:01:240:01:26

The blanket made Hal feel exceedingly hot,

0:01:270:01:30

but would he remove it?

0:01:300:01:33

Most certainly not.

0:01:330:01:34

It made all the other dogs giggle and scoff.

0:01:340:01:38

But in spite of the heat, he would not take it off.

0:01:380:01:41

"It's cosy and cuddly and snuggly as well.

0:01:430:01:46

"And it has a nice biscuity, chocolaty smell."

0:01:460:01:50

"A blanket," said Tootsie, "belongs on a bed."

0:01:500:01:55

"A blanket? Oh, no, it's a hammock," Hal said.

0:01:550:01:59

"It's a Halloween costume, a ghostly disguise.

0:01:590:02:03

"It's even got two little holes for my eyes.

0:02:030:02:07

"It's a sail, it's a house,

0:02:080:02:11

"it's a cape, it's a flag."

0:02:110:02:15

"Don't be daft," chuckled Nipper.

0:02:150:02:18

"It's just an old rag."

0:02:180:02:20

"Never mind, Hot Dog," grinned Buster McNally.

0:02:200:02:23

"Come and play hide and seek down in the alley."

0:02:230:02:26

While Buster was counting, it started to rain

0:02:260:02:29

so they ran to the windmill in Ticklemore Lane.

0:02:290:02:32

The weather grew worse as they fled helter-skelter

0:02:320:02:36

up the rickety staircase and into their shelter.

0:02:360:02:39

They huddled inside, it was really quite frightening

0:02:390:02:43

as the old windmill shook in the thunder and lightning.

0:02:430:02:47

"Come under my blanket, it's lovely and warm," said Hal.

0:02:470:02:51

"It will make you feel safe from the storm."

0:02:510:02:54

His friends snuggled under and had to agree

0:02:540:02:58

that the blanket was rather a nice place to be.

0:02:580:03:02

Then the pooches all yelped as the lightning went flash

0:03:020:03:05

and the thunder went boom.

0:03:050:03:07

And then something went crash!

0:03:070:03:09

"Yikes, what was that?" wondered Hal with a frown.

0:03:090:03:13

"The staircase," cried Buster, "it's just fallen down."

0:03:130:03:17

"Oh, no," fretted Nipper, "what terrible luck.

0:03:170:03:20

"We are trapped in a windmill," he whimpered. "We're stuck."

0:03:200:03:25

"If only," cried Tootsie, "we had a long rope."

0:03:250:03:29

And suddenly, Hal felt a glimmer of hope.

0:03:290:03:34

"We don't have a rope, that's for certain," he said.

0:03:340:03:38

"So we'll just have to use my old blanket instead."

0:03:380:03:41

He tore it in strips, then tied up the ends,

0:03:410:03:45

and climbed down to safety with all of his friends.

0:03:450:03:50

Said Buster and Nipper, "I'm sorry we laughed.

0:03:500:03:54

"I'm sorry we said that your blanket was daft."

0:03:540:03:57

"But I can't go on wearing it now," Hal said sadly.

0:03:570:04:01

"It's torn and it's battered, and tattered so badly."

0:04:010:04:05

Then Buster grinned.

0:04:050:04:07

"I've an idea," he said. DING!

0:04:070:04:10

"We just need some scissors, a needle and thread."

0:04:100:04:14

Now, Hal and his friends go to play in the alley

0:04:140:04:18

in their trendy new shirts made by Buster McNally.

0:04:180:04:22

On one side of Hal's, it says...

0:04:220:04:26

..but his friends all have shirts that say

0:04:280:04:31

"Hot Dog is cool!"

0:04:310:04:33

Hot Dog certainly is cool.

0:04:340:04:36

He really is, isn't he?

0:04:360:04:38

Do you have a special blanket that you love, just like Hal?

0:04:380:04:42

Well, if you do, now's the time to snuggle up with it

0:04:420:04:45

and drift off to sleep.

0:04:450:04:47

Happy Hot Dog dreams.

0:04:470:04:48

I'll see you again soon

0:04:480:04:50

for another Bedtime Story.
