It won't be long now. Any day, Pal.
Arthur Timothy Read.
And his scruffy dog, Pal.
An ordinary boy, in an ordinary town.
But lately, a boy obsessed.
A boy whose every thought and action centres on one thing
and one thing only.
Why are you standing in the corner of my room?
And who are you talking to?
Where was I?
A boy obsessed.
A boy who has stepped over an invisible line.
A line between reality and...
Hey, I'm talking here!
There it is!
The GX Trailblazer 10,000!
Whoa! My mum would never get me one of those.
I had a hard time getting her to take the training wheels off!.
Well, they're not exactly giving it to me. I have to pay for half.
Dad says it's a lot of bike for a kid. This bike has everything!
A 599 tytullium frame, 24 inch alloy mag rims,
Limsnogger Connection and Klodtrack tyres.
A Limsnogger connection!
I don't know what that is but it sure sounds impressive.
Yeah, and that's not all.
A 21-speed shift and hydrau-static super-coil shock absorbers.
And look at those tyres!
Think of the awesome burn outs!
Man! I can't wait to see that bike in action.
Oh, I almost forgot! I'm meeting Brain at the movies.
It's a double feature, "Aliens Ate My Homework" and "My Mother The Alien."
-I can't. I'm saving up for my bike. See?
This is the chart of how much I've saved so far.
-This is how much I need before I get my bike.
-That could take forever!
So far, I'm doing pretty well.
If I cut out extra expenses, I'll be able to buy my bike next month.
What counts as extra?
Movies, video games, trips to the sugar bowl.
That's like living in the stone age, or 1980, or something!
Yeah, it's tough.
But it'll be worth it.
I'll be having more fun than ever, once I get my bike.
Every little bit helps.
I can see myself. Right there!
I did it!
I saved enough money to buy my new bike!
Just think, Pal.
Tomorrow, I'll be the owner of a GX Trailblazer 10,000.
Look out Elwood City, here I come!
I wish I had a super fast, super cool bike too!
Don't cry, DW.
Someday you might be as cool as your brother. But probably not.
This is a job for Bionic Bunny!
So, when's your Dad taking you to get the new bike?
-As soon as he gets back from the store.
I can chop this baby down for parts and get a lot of money for it.
I wonder if someone will wanna steal your new bike
and chop it down for parts?
It could happen. It's as nice as a sports car.
BIONIC BUNNY: Just try breaking into that!
Ready to pick up your new wheels?
Am I ever!
So, how come you brought your old bike?
-Dad says if I trade it in, I can get a discount on my new bike.
I kinda hate to see this one go, though. It's a good bike.
We've been through a lot together.
BOTH: Whoah! Oooh!
I'm gonna be extra careful with my new bike,
so it doesn't get beat up.
-Whoa! Nice wheels!
-The GX Trailblazer 10,000!
-Come on, Arthur! Show us what it can do!
-OK! Here I go!
Phew! No scratches.
That was a close one.
I better walk this home and get it cleaned up.
Be careful, Arthur!
Someone will want to steal your bike and chop it down for parts! Whoa!
It could happen.
It's as nice as a sports car.
Hey, I can't breathe!
Hey, Arthur, wanna ride with me over to the park?
Mmmm, I don't think so.
It might rain today and I don't want my Trailblazer 10,000 to get rusty.
It's just a bike.
The GX Trailblazer 10,000 is a sophisticated piece of machinery.
Well, I'm glad my bike is the kind you ride.
The GX Trailblazer 10,000 needs super-safe storage.
What should we do? Mad Mud Dirt Derby?
Let's loop the park three times. Call it Le Tour de Elwood City.
Hey! What gives? Where's the hot new wheels?
I'm saving it for a special occasion.
What's the point of a cool bike if you never use it?
What's the point in wrecking it after I saved all that money?
Come here, let me show you.
I got this racing to a bowling tournament.
-I got back up and I won.
-I got a better one.
I got this when I was riding with no hands and ran into a fence.
Oh, yeah? Well, I got this...
Actually, my bike came like this.
I think it's used.
The point is, nothing says "I love you" like a few battle scars.
Francine doesn't understand.
She doesn't have the GX Trailblazer 10,000.
It's not just a bike, it's... it's a work of art.
A 599 tytullium frame with a Limsnogger Connection
and Klodtrack tyres.
And see these?
Hydrau-static super-coil shock absorbers.
I'm gonna ride my bike, someday, it just has to be the perfect occasion.
Who...who are you?
I am the Ghost of Bicycles Never Ridden.
What do you want?
"Bicycles Never Ridden?" Boy!
You pick the most obvious name you can and people still don't get it.
OK, but the GX Trailblazer 10,000 is not just a bike, it's...
-it's a work of...
-Yeah, yeah! Grab my cape.
We couldn't just use the stairs?
It's more impressive this way.
Look upon these, Arthur Read.
They're just plates.
Not just any plates - china plates.
People get these as wedding presents and they never eat off of 'em.
They just wash 'em.
-I didn't know Mr Crosswire had a car like that.
He never drives it.
I'm not as bad as that.
It's not the same.
Ah! They're just too pretty to wear. What if I scuffed them?
Soon her feet will get bigger
and she won't be able to wear them, even if she wants to.
Just like YOU won't be able to ride your bike.
Hey! What are you doing in my room?
How can she see us? I thought we were ghosts.
I know you. You're the Ghost of Lunch Tomorrow.
So what's it going to be?
Pizza or cold macaroni?
Um...ixnay on the unchlay.
-I'm afraid that's all we have time for today.
This looks like my room, only dustier.
Is that me?
Just once, before I'm too old...
..I'm gonna ride this bike.
Oh! It was only a dream. There's still time.
My bike doesn't have to become a rusty heap of unused parts.
-Should we wait for Arthur?
-Are you kidding?
-He doesn't even take his bike out on sunny days.
-Let's get going.
- Look at that guy go! - Look at the tread on those tyres.
And those super-coil shocks!
ALL: You made it!
What's the point of a bike if you never ride it?
OK, let's see if it'll help you beat the rest of us. Ready, set, go!
