Bedtime, Lucy! >
-Oh, hello, Lucy.
-Hello. What's up?
- We're having a meeting. - To investigate a complaint.
-Sounds a bit serious. What sort of complaint?
-A complaining one!
Someone complained that we don't tell you enough stories about birds.
We like to be fair to everyone!
So we've decided to tell you a story about birds.
Em... Anybody know any?
Hold on! What about poor old Seamus?
You remember when...? Oh, yes! And then...all that business...!
-ANIMALS ALL LAUGH
-Will somebody tell me the story?
Oh, of course, Lucy.
This is the story of Seamus the Stork.
'It was a beautiful day.
'A light breeze blew cotton-wool clouds across the savannah sky.'
# You take the high cloud And I'll take the low cloud... #
- Morning, Pauline! - Morning, Weaver Bird!
Oops! Sorry, girls!
ALTOGETHER: Crazy pelican!
'Each bird had its own style of flying.
'The snip-snip bird liked to look good!
'Whereas Doris was happy just to be off the ground!'
'But the master of the skies was Seamus the Stork.'
Flight zero niner niner... Seamus the Stork cruising at 200 metres!
What a sight! It makes you proud to be a bird!
He's just showing off!
I could fly like that if I wanted!
-Don't be silly, dear.
Thanks, everyone! Prepare for... What the...? AGH!
-Prepare for emergency landing!
-Keep flying, Seamus!
-Are you all right, dear?
Oh... Clipped a bush with my wings.
I'm TRAINED to make emergency landings!
Best thing is to get airborne again straight away. Bye!
-I can't seem to get off the ground!
-You've lost your flying feathers.
That's why you can't fly.
No more aerobatics for you, Seamus!
-Now, then! That isn't very helpful!
My beautiful flying feathers! Urgh...urgh!
We have to try and help.
SHE CONTINUES: There must be a way...
I have an idea! Why don't we each lend Seamus one of OUR feathers?
I'm not lending out my beautiful feathers!
Marvellous idea, Doris! > OTHERS AGREE
Thank you all!
I'll be off, then!
'Seamus began to flap his new feathers.'
THEY ALL EXCLAIM
-I've got a wee scheme!
-Will it hurt?
-Ach, no, laddie!
We'll soon have you airborne again!
I want you all to gather twigs and leaves!
It will never work.
'The weaver bird used all the twigs and leaves
'to weave a beautiful kite for Seamus!'
There we are! Now, where's Seamus? THE OTHERS CHEER
-It'll never w...
..Good luck, Seamus!
Now all we need is someone strong enough to hold the string.
'Nelson was only too help to help.
'With a gentle breeze, Seamus was soon airborne once more.'
Cruising at 50 metres... I suggest you sit back and enjoy the flight.
Splendid! Go, Seamus!
It brings a tear to my eye!
'But then Nelson got itchy!'
Oh, what a nasty itch that is - right behind my left ear!
Ah! That's better!
I say, Seamus, that's... Uh-oh!
Oh, well. He IS a bird. I'm sure he'll be fine.
There's only one thing for it, Seamus -
you'll have to stay on the ground till your flying feathers grow back.
But that could take ages!
'Audrey felt sorry for Seamus.'
To help Seamus, I say we ALL stay on the ground until he's better!
OK...but it'll be very boring.
Not if we play a game! OTHERS: Mmmm!
'The savannah was a strange sight. Not a single bird was in the sky!
'They were all on the ground...
'playing a game!'
Pick-up-sticks is my favourite!
You're next, Pauline!
My beak isn't very good for this sort of thing.
'The game went on for a very, very long time.
'Day turned to dusk... and dusk to night.
'Night turned to dawn...
'and still they played on.'
Now it's Seamus's turn!
He's going for the big one at the top!
-Seamus is out!
-THEY ALL CHEER
-My flying feathers! They're back!
'Seamus had enjoyed the game so much, he hadn't even noticed...
'his feathers had grown back!'
'Seamus was master of the skies once more!'
I can fly! I can fly!
-I LIKE bird stories!
Yes! Especially with elephants in them!
It WAS only a small part... And now, Lucy... >
-it's time you flew up to bed! Come back soon!
