Bedtime, Lucy! >
-ALL: HI, LUCY!
-Nelson! What happened?
Oh...I'm fine. No need to fuss.
Nelson fell over! It was quite funny, actually!
-A little slip, that's all.
-Will someone tell me what's going on?
We thought that instead of a story, you might like a gymnastic display.
And Nelson volunteered to start off with his triple-back-somersault.
-I'm a bit rusty.
-Dear old Nelson!
I like gymnastics, but perhaps a story would be easier.
- I tried to tell him! - I should have warmed up first.
-How about a story while Nelson recovers?
-Good idea, Boris!
This is a story about my friend Melanie.
'When the first snow began to fall in the forest,
'Melanie Moose knew it was nearly her birthday.
'But she wasn't happy.'
It's no fun being a moose! I'm so big and clumsy!
I wish I could spin like a squirrel. I suppose I could try!
Jumpin' jellybeans! That's the strangest dance I've ever seen!
-Whatever are you doin', Melanie?
She's jumping for joy, Randolph!
-Am I right in thinking it's your birthday soon?
Melanie's birthday!? Now, that's exciting!
-We must have a party!
-There's a cake to bake...
-And presents to make!
-Oh, well...I'll be seeing you.
Bye, darlin'! Now, where were we...? Oh, yeah - about these presents...
'We were all so excited, we forgot whose birthday it really was.'
# Doop-dee-doo! Doop-dee-doo! #
Yee-HA! My finest mushroom!
Melanie's gonna be SO pleased with her present!
'Beverley Beaver was looking for the tallest tree in the forest.'
Hello, Mr Tree!
You're just what I'm looking for - tall and handsome!
SQUIRRELS CHATTER ANGRILY Have a nice day!
Melanie will LOVE this long, smooth log!
'Meanwhile, I was busy mixing up a special blend of sweet things!'
Now, let me see. Two drops of... Mmm! ..delicious lavender honey!
Three drops of...
Slurp! Mmm! ..maple syrup!
And four... No, FIVE...
Slurp! ..drops of clover honey! Mmm!
I wish I could leap like a salmon.
What's she doing now?
It's her birthday tomorrow. She's probably taking a bath.
'The next day, when the sun rose over the snowy mountains,
'it was Melanie's birthday!'
I wish I could fly like an eagle.
Oh, hi, Beverley.
Oh, Randolph! I'm so sorry!
-ALL: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MELANIE!
-We've each got you a present!
The biggest, juiciest mushroom in the forest - just for you, Melanie!
'Melanie didn't like mushrooms very much.'
Ohh. Eh...thanks, Randolph.
And THIS is from ME!
Oh...it's a log. That's nice...
And guess what Boris the Bear got you!
Oh, Boris! You shouldn't have!
-..And you didn't.
Oh, dear! I seem to have eaten it all!
Thanks, everyone. Now, if you don't mind, I'll go and look at the snow.
-I don't get it!
-That was one grade-A prime timber log!
High-cut, close-trimmed, in-season mountain pine!
And that was no ordinary mushroom!
I just tasted the honey to make sure it was the way I like it!
You said it right there, Boris, old buddy!
We've given Melanie something that we'd like ourselves!
-I still don't get it!
-Not what MELANIE really wanted!
Oh, I get it!
What would Melanie want more than anything else in the world?
She wants to fly like an eagle, leap like a fish
and spin like a squirrel! Uh... But that's impossible for a moose!
We got you another present. Close your eyes!
'Beverley led Melanie all the way to the top of a mountain.'
Now, open your eyes, Melanie!
A snowboard? Just what I've always wanted!
Hey! I can make it go where I want it to!
'Melanie was having the time of her life!'
Thank you for such a wonderful present!
-Now you can fly like an eagle.
-Leap like a fish!
And spin like a squirrel!
But best of all is to have a birthday...like a moose!
A snowboarding moose! What a great story, Boris!
-Are you all right now, Nelson?
-Quite recovered, thank you.
When can we see your triple flip?
-I'm sure Nelson could do one if he wanted to.
But let's stick to stories - that's what you do best!
That's right, Lucy! Just one more thing...
Bed? I know.
