Bedtime, Lucy! >
-ALL: Hello, Lucy!
-Hi, Lucy. What's wrong?
Nothing. Only...you look different.
Sometimes, on cold nights, my fur turns white, like, um...camouflage.
-I see. And you seem to have a different accent.
-I had lessons.
Really, Boris? Well, you certainly SOUND different.
-I bet you can still do your famous Russian bear dance.
-Don't be shy.
-Did someone mention dancing? Hi, Lucy. Don't worry.
RUSSIAN ACCENT: This is the REAL me. We had you fooled there.
You certainly did. But what are you two up to?
-Snowbert popped round to tell you a special story.
-What's it about?
-Wait a moment. We have to get settled in first.
This is the story of Hercule Moustache.
Sidney the seal was juggling some fish.
BARKS THEN WHISTLES
I spy with my little eye something beginning with...
Sidney had seen MANY icebergs in his time, but this one was new.
And on the iceberg sat a very large walrus.
I wonder who it is. Never seen a walrus in these parts before.
Hello! My name is Sidney the seal. Pleased to meet you.
-I am Hercule Moustache.
My bottom is cold from sitting on this iceberg for so long.
Oh... Have you come far, then?
I have come from a place called Mossy Bay.
-You've probably heard of it.
Oh...it is a beautiful spot!
Famous for the scenery... and ze moss, of course.
-I miss it already.
..Oh, ar, ar, it's nice here too.
-Lots of things to see and do.
-Ye-es...so I have been told.
I am on my holidays, you see,
and my friend suggested the North Pole.
So here I am...only, it doesn't look very interesting.
You won't be disappointed. I could show you around.
Thank you. That would be nice.
Hercule, I'll take you to the most spectacular sight you've ever seen.
Oh, really? And what might that be?
It's a surprise, ar, ar. Follow me.
On your left, you can see hundreds of icebergs of different sizes.
My dear Sidney,
I have seen enough icebergs to last me a lifetime.
Where is the surprise you spoke of?
You'll soon find out.
OK, this is the first stop on our guided tour.
-Icebergs, I expect(!)
-# De-dah! #
Hmm... I see...
-I'm not really one for modern art, but...
-That's my friend Snowbert.
-He made the ice sculptures.
Oh. I see. That is your surprise. Very good.
-Ah, yes. A bear who does sculpture. Very good, indeed.
-That wasn't it.
-Your surprise will be much more spectacular.
Yes! Snowbert will show us the way. Come on.
'I packed some things in a rucksack and the three of us set off.'
Is it much further?
And that wind is very cold for me. BRRR!
I knew I should have gone to the Sahara. Sunshine...sand...
-D'you like our fountain?
-Very nice. Oui, oui. I've seen them before.
Bigger than this, of course.
-This whale will take us across the water.
Across ze water? Oh... I won't get wet, will I?
'Eventually, the ice became so thick that the whale could go no further.'
What's happening? We've stopped.
Has he broken down? Ooh, la, la!
-This is a disaster!
-Don't worry, we can walk the rest of the way.
More walking?! I don't believe it!
It is like ze marathon! After THIS holiday, I will need ANOTHER one!
'Sidney and I were getting fed up with Hercule's moaning.'
North, always north.
Almost there, ar, ar!
-I like this view!
Can we sit down now?
Yes, Hercule. Just sit there.
More... Always more!
Oh, no... This snow is everywhere!
What have you done to ze moustache of poor Hercule?
It's a SNOW ride. You're meant to be covered in snow!
I should never have come to the North Pole.
'Now we were REALLY fed up with Hercule.
'We'd shown him so many exciting things
-'and all he could do was complain.'
-Maybe you SHOULD've stayed at home.
Yes, in the south.
HE COUGHS DELIBERATELY
So where is this surprise you have promised me?
Well, Hercule, our journey is over. We're here, at last.
Here? Here is my surprise?
Yes. Make yourself comfortable. The show is about to begin.
A SHOW? Show?! But this is madness.
Here there is only black sky... and ice.
'Hercule felt disappointed, but he didn't dare complain any more.'
Did you know that the spot we're sitting on is the exact North Pole?
Yes, this is as far north as you can go.
Really? That's very interesting.
Let's have a picnic!
A fish. As we walruses say, "Who could wish for more than a fish?"
Thank you for the picnic surprise. Merci. Thank you, my friends.
The picnic wasn't our surprise.
But look up! Up at the sky, Hercule.
'Hercule looked up and the skies began to change.'
Welcome, Hercule, to your surprise.
The Northern Lights!
It... It is SO beautiful!
It is spectacular... Thank you for this wonderful surprise.
-We're glad you enjoyed your holiday at the North Pole.
-Look! The lights!
Hercule had enjoyed the Northern Lights so much
he promised to tell all his friends to visit the North Pole too.
-I feel like Hercule.
-What? Have you got a moustache?
I mean I'm like Hercule because I got a lovely surprise too.
-Glad you liked it.
-And now isn't it time YOU went travelling north?
-Back to my bed?
Yes. Goodnight, Lucy.
-Goodnight, everyone. See you soon.
-ALL: Goodnight, Lucy.
