GULLS SCREECH

0:01:290:01:30

HE HUMS

0:01:380:01:41

CLATTERING

0:01:410:01:42

-Did you hear a noise, Salty?

-CLATTERING

0:01:440:01:47

I think it's coming from Sam and Ernie's shed.

0:01:470:01:51

Come on, we'll find out what's going on. Come on, girl.

0:01:510:01:55

Come on. Don't be frightened.

0:01:550:01:57

-Good morning!

-Morning, Jack.

-Morning, Jack.

0:01:570:02:00

What's all this kerfuffle about then?

0:02:000:02:02

We're looking for the tape measure.

0:02:020:02:04

What the one you lent to Miss Bowline-Hitch, you mean?

0:02:040:02:07

-So that's where it went.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:02:070:02:10

Sam is making me a really big and useful box

0:02:100:02:13

-to keep all my fishing stuff in.

-Oh.

0:02:130:02:16

But a job like this is no good without a tape measure.

0:02:160:02:18

Never mind, Ernie, we don't need it.

0:02:180:02:20

-I'm an experienced professional, all I need is the plans.

-Ah.

0:02:200:02:25

Ah. Er...no plans?

0:02:250:02:28

-No.

-Not to worry, an experienced professional like me

0:02:280:02:32

-doesn't need plans.

-Oh, I don't think I like the look that.

0:02:320:02:36

-Do you, Salty?

-Leave this to me, Ernie.

0:02:360:02:39

Yes, well, I think we'll leave both of you to it if that's all right?

0:02:390:02:42

Come on, Salty, let's get back to The Rainbow.

0:02:420:02:45

-See you later, Jack.

-Bye-bye.

-Pass us that screwdriver.

0:02:450:02:48

CLATTERING

0:02:480:02:50

There she is... The Rainbow!

0:03:000:03:03

Well, what have you got for us today, my dear?

0:03:030:03:06

HORN

0:03:060:03:07

-HE LAUGHS

-Come on, Salty.

0:03:070:03:10

HE HUMS

0:03:100:03:12

There we are.

0:03:120:03:14

HORN

0:03:200:03:21

Yeah, good girl, Salty. You settle down. Good girl.

0:03:210:03:25

Well, what about that kerfuffle with Sam and Ernie, eh?

0:03:250:03:29

HE SIGHS

0:03:290:03:30

Do you remember that time I thought

0:03:300:03:32

we could do without something we really needed, Salty?

0:03:320:03:35

The Map! We need the map to know where we're going.

0:03:350:03:39

Oh, we got in a right pickle that day and no mistake.

0:03:390:03:42

-HE SIGHS

-Let me get comfortable

0:03:420:03:44

and I'll tell you the whole story.

0:03:440:03:47

Once upon a twinkly time, The Rainbow set off from Staithes,

0:03:470:03:52

waved goodbye to Whitby and disappeared over the horizon.

0:03:520:03:57

I had lent my map to a pal of mine.

0:03:570:04:00

Now, we usually never leave port without it,

0:04:000:04:03

but it was such a lovely day

0:04:030:04:05

I convinced Salty that we should set sail.

0:04:050:04:08

And I began to sing.

0:04:080:04:10

# Just Salty Dog and me

0:04:100:04:13

# Upon the briny sea

0:04:130:04:15

# We've got no map but that's OK

0:04:150:04:18

# It's a beautiful, wonderful sunny day

0:04:180:04:21

# We're bowling along and singing this song

0:04:210:04:23

# Just Salty Dog me. #

0:04:230:04:27

-HE LAUGHS

-Well, we hadn't got very far

0:04:270:04:30

when it got very cold and very foggy.

0:04:300:04:33

Salty had that

0:04:330:04:34

you-should-have-brought-the-map look in her eye.

0:04:340:04:38

And she was right.

0:04:380:04:40

"We're lost," I exclaimed.

0:04:400:04:42

"Found you," said a squeaky voice.

0:04:420:04:45

"Can I get a badge for that?"

0:04:450:04:47

HE LAUGHS

0:04:470:04:49

It was our old friend Penguin on an iceberg.

0:04:490:04:53

"You're near the South Pole," said Penguin.

0:04:530:04:57

Well, I'd quite forgotten that Penguin

0:04:570:05:00

was a member of the 123rd South Pole Rangers.

0:05:000:05:05

He had a badge for everything.

0:05:050:05:08

"And now I'm going to get one for flying," he said

0:05:080:05:12

"Ah," said Salty.

0:05:120:05:14

"Penguin," I asked, "can you fly?"

0:05:140:05:19

"No," he said, "but I'm trying and then I can get a badge for it."

0:05:190:05:24

"Look."

0:05:240:05:26

And he held up his Rangers handbook

0:05:260:05:29

and turned to the page that said "flying badge."

0:05:290:05:33

"To be awarded a flying badge," it said,

0:05:330:05:36

"Rangers must go as far as the blue-tipped iceberg

0:05:360:05:39

by flapping their wings and not touching the ground, not once."

0:05:390:05:44

Well, we all looked at the blue-tipped iceberg.

0:05:440:05:48

It was a very long way away.

0:05:480:05:51

Penguin flapped his slippery wings.

0:05:510:05:54

"I can do it," he said.

0:05:540:05:57

And he flapped...and he flapped...

0:05:570:05:59

and he hopped and he hopped and he flapped and he flapped again.

0:05:590:06:03

"Am I at the blue-tipped iceberg yet," Penguin puffed.

0:06:030:06:08

Salty put a paw over her eyes and shook her head.

0:06:080:06:14

"Ohh," said the disappointed Penguin

0:06:140:06:18

and he sat down...right beside The Rainbow.

0:06:180:06:22

Beside The Rainbow? How's that possible?

0:06:220:06:27

Salty and I looked over the side.

0:06:270:06:31

The sea had completely frozen over.

0:06:310:06:35

The Rainbow was stuck in the ice.

0:06:350:06:39

"I can help," said Penguin.

0:06:390:06:42

And he pecked away at the ice.

0:06:420:06:45

Will... Peck! ..I get... Peck!

0:06:450:06:48

..a badge... Peck! ..for this?

0:06:480:06:52

Salty wasn't sure.

0:06:520:06:54

Penguin had only managed to peck a teensy hole

0:06:540:06:58

and his beak was looking a little skew-whiff.

0:06:580:07:02

"Thank you," I said, "but I think we need something hot to melt the ice."

0:07:020:07:08

"We'll have to wait until summer when the sun comes out."

0:07:080:07:12

Well, Salty didn't want to wait until summer,

0:07:120:07:16

she'd planned a trip to Saltburn and wanted to get home soon.

0:07:160:07:20

And that's when her whiskers started wiffling.

0:07:200:07:24

She was having one of her ideas.

0:07:240:07:27

"Thelma the Dragon!" she woofed.

0:07:270:07:30

"She can melt the ice with her hot, fiery breath."

0:07:300:07:34

"Good thinking," I said. "Get the Dragon Whistle."

0:07:340:07:37

"I can't find it," woofed Salty.

0:07:370:07:40

"It's tied to the edge of the map," I said.

0:07:400:07:44

And then I remembered, we didn't have the map either.

0:07:440:07:49

Salty had that

0:07:490:07:50

you-should-have-brought-the-map look in her eye.

0:07:500:07:54

"How are we going to get Thelma now?" I said.

0:07:540:07:58

And then Salty's whiskers started to wiffle,

0:07:580:08:02

she was having another one

0:08:020:08:04

-of her bright ideas.

-SALTY BARKS

0:08:040:08:06

"The Rainbow!"

0:08:060:08:08

"We can send Thelma a signal using smoke from the funnel," she said.

0:08:080:08:14

"She'll never see it," I said.

0:08:140:08:16

"I know," said Penguin suddenly, "I'll get Thelma for you!"

0:08:160:08:21

"But it's a very, very long way,"

0:08:210:08:24

I shouted to Penguin as he dived through the ice.

0:08:240:08:27

"It's all right, I might get a badge for this!"

0:08:270:08:30

And he was off!

0:08:300:08:32

"I hope he'll be OK," I said to Salty

0:08:320:08:35

as we watched him go all the way

0:08:350:08:37

to just past the blue-tipped iceberg and then...

0:08:370:08:41

-we couldn't see him many more.

-HE SIGHS

0:08:410:08:44

Suddenly, Salty spotted a pink dot in the distance.

0:08:440:08:49

When it was just past the blue-tipped iceberg,

0:08:490:08:53

we could see...

0:08:530:08:54

it was Thelma!

0:08:540:08:56

Below in the water...there was Penguin

0:08:560:09:00

flapping his wings and flying through the water.

0:09:000:09:05

"I said I'd beat you back, Thelma,"

0:09:050:09:08

he shouted as he shot out onto the ice.

0:09:080:09:12

"Only just though," Thelma replied

0:09:120:09:15

as she landed on top of The Rainbow's funnel.

0:09:150:09:18

"Spot of bother, Jack?"

0:09:180:09:20

"Nothing you can't solve," I said.

0:09:200:09:23

And, in an instant, she had melted the ice with her hot, fiery breath

0:09:230:09:28

and The Rainbow...was free.

0:09:280:09:32

"Thank you, Thelma," I said.

0:09:320:09:34

"And thank you, Penguin."

0:09:340:09:36

"That's all right," said Penguin.

0:09:360:09:39

"Do I get a badge for that?"

0:09:390:09:41

So I looked on every page of the Penguin Rangers Handbook,

0:09:410:09:46

but try as I might I just couldn't find

0:09:460:09:48

a going to Smoulder Island to get Thelma badge.

0:09:480:09:52

"Never mind," Penguin said with a woeful waddle,

0:09:520:09:57

"the flying badge is the one I really want anyway."

0:09:570:10:01

Then Salty pointed to the page about the flying badge.

0:10:010:10:08

"To be awarded a flying badge," it said,

0:10:080:10:12

"Rangers must go as far as the blue-tipped iceberg

0:10:120:10:17

"by flapping their wings and not touching the ground, not once."

0:10:170:10:23

Well, Penguin had gone further than the blue-tipped iceberg

0:10:230:10:29

by flapping his wings and he didn't touch the ground, not once,

0:10:290:10:34

he had flown all the way... underwater!

0:10:340:10:39

"You can have your flying badge after all. Hooray!"

0:10:390:10:43

HE LAUGHS

0:10:430:10:45

"I can?" he stuttered, turning a little bit pink.

0:10:450:10:48

-"Wow! Thank you!"

-HE LAUGHS

0:10:480:10:52

And we'll cheered and gave him a big hooray

0:10:520:10:56

whilst he gave the 123rd South Pole Rangers' salute.

0:10:560:11:01

"Well, we'd best be off before this ice freezes," I said.

0:11:020:11:07

But then...I remembered, we were lost.

0:11:070:11:11

We didn't have the map.

0:11:110:11:13

"I know the way," said Thelma.

0:11:130:11:16

So we said goodbye to Penguin

0:11:160:11:20

and followed Thelma all the way

0:11:200:11:23

-back to Staithes and home.

-HORN

0:11:230:11:26

And after that, we never left port without the map again.

0:11:260:11:31

Salty made sure of that, didn't you, eh? Ha-ha!

0:11:310:11:35

HORN

0:11:350:11:36

Did you like that story, Salty?

0:11:400:11:42

All true, of course.

0:11:420:11:44

Mind you, my stories always are.

0:11:440:11:46

It's a lot quieter in the workshop, Salty.

0:11:560:12:00

Come on, I wonder if Sam's finished

0:12:000:12:02

building that trunk for Ernie's fishing gear.

0:12:020:12:05

Let's go and have a look.

0:12:050:12:06

Ernie, are you all right?

0:12:080:12:11

-I'm fine!

-Oh.

-Sam's told me to close my eyes,

0:12:110:12:14

she's got a surprise for me.

0:12:140:12:16

-She's finished my trunk.

-Oh!

0:12:160:12:19

All finished. You can take a look.

0:12:190:12:22

Ooh!

0:12:240:12:26

That's amazing!

0:12:260:12:29

Perfect for my fishing stuff! Perfect!

0:12:290:12:33

It looks more like a cupboard than I imagined it would.

0:12:330:12:37

Well, that's because it is a cupboard.

0:12:370:12:40

-Your trunks inside.

-Oh! HE LAUGHS

0:12:400:12:43

This?! It's a bit...small.

0:12:500:12:53

I told you it would be a surprise.

0:12:530:12:55

You see, that's what comes from having no plans and no tape measure.

0:12:550:12:59

Sorry, Ernie.

0:12:590:13:01

Do you know what, Sam, this cupboard would be perfect

0:13:010:13:05

for my fishing stuff.

0:13:050:13:06

Why don't we just clear it out

0:13:060:13:08

and forget about building enormous trunks?

0:13:080:13:11

-Good idea.

-Yeah, that's the spirit.

0:13:110:13:14

And I know just what we can put in there.

0:13:140:13:16

Dog biscuits! Perfect for Salty. Yeah.

0:13:160:13:20

See you later, Sam. Bye, Ernie.

0:13:200:13:23

-See you later.

-Bye, Jack.

0:13:230:13:25

ERNIE SIGHS

0:13:250:13:27

Well, Salty, that's it for today.

0:13:320:13:35

We'll see all our friends again next time.

0:13:350:13:38

Oh...and we'll see you next time as well.

0:13:380:13:42

Bye-bye. Come on, girl.
