Let's go!

0:00:020:00:03

Ah! That looks heavy.

0:00:040:00:08

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:00:110:00:13

Wow!

0:00:180:00:20

I like that!

0:00:210:00:23

Tellytales!

0:00:320:00:34

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:00:380:00:39

-This tale is called...

-Dancing Rose.

0:00:420:00:46

Once upon a time, in the land of Egypt

0:00:490:00:52

there lived an old man named Snoreus.

0:00:520:00:56

HE SNORES

0:00:560:00:58

He was always asleep, as you can see.

0:00:580:01:02

And he was always snoring, as you can hear.

0:01:020:01:07

-Shall we wake him up?

-Yes!

0:01:070:01:10

Wake up, Snoreus!

0:01:100:01:13

Wake up, Snoreus!

0:01:130:01:16

Wake up, Snoreus!

0:01:160:01:20

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:01:200:01:21

Snoreus was very old.

0:01:210:01:24

So, he had three servants to help him in his house.

0:01:240:01:28

Silky did all the cooking.

0:01:320:01:35

Sulky did all the cleaning.

0:01:370:01:40

Rose was the youngest servant and she did all the washing.

0:01:450:01:51

Aww, poor thing!

0:01:510:01:54

But do you know what?

0:01:550:01:56

She had to go down to the river to do it, all on her own.

0:01:560:02:02

Aww!

0:02:020:02:04

And there was always loads and loads of washing to do.

0:02:040:02:08

Aww!

0:02:080:02:10

But Rose didn't mind being by the river,

0:02:100:02:14

because she had a special friend.

0:02:140:02:16

-A hippo.

-A hippo?!

0:02:160:02:19

-Yes, I said, a hippo.

-Ooh!

0:02:190:02:23

The hippo came to see her every day.

0:02:230:02:26

Sometimes, Rose danced for the hippo.

0:02:260:02:29

The hippo loved to watch Rose dance to the beautiful music of the river.

0:02:290:02:35

Ahem! Music! I said, music, please.

0:02:350:02:40

MUSIC PLAYS

0:02:420:02:44

# The music of the river

0:02:440:02:48

# Splashing all around

0:02:480:02:52

# How can I be lonely when I hear that lovely sound?

0:02:520:02:57

# My feet just have to dance

0:02:590:03:02

# My feet just have to dance

0:03:020:03:04

# Whenever I hear that sound...

0:03:040:03:12

# My darling hippopotamus

0:03:160:03:19

# You are a friend so true

0:03:190:03:22

# How can I be lonely when I've got friends like you?

0:03:220:03:28

# My feet just have to dance

0:03:300:03:33

# My feet just have to dance

0:03:330:03:35

# Whenever I hear from you...

0:03:350:03:41

# Whenever I hear from you. #

0:03:440:03:50

One day, Snoreus saw Rose's beautiful dancing.

0:03:520:03:57

He was delighted.

0:03:570:03:59

He had this idea.

0:04:060:04:08

The next day, a messenger arrived with a parcel from the shoemaker.

0:04:100:04:16

Wow, what's that?

0:04:180:04:19

Look! A pair of dancing slippers for Rose.

0:04:190:04:24

They were a present from Snoreus.

0:04:240:04:27

How beautiful they were,

0:04:270:04:30

-and how Rose loved them.

-Wow!

0:04:300:04:34

But how jealous Silky and Sulky were of Rose.

0:04:340:04:37

Oh-oh!

0:04:370:04:38

Ahem! Mr Messenger, have you got anything else to deliver?

0:04:410:04:46

Are you sure?

0:04:460:04:49

Yes! A very important letter.

0:04:490:04:53

From the most important man in Egypt.

0:04:530:04:56

The Pharaoh himself.

0:04:560:04:57

Ooh!

0:04:570:04:59

Pharaoh was having a party

0:04:590:05:02

and everyone was invited!

0:05:020:05:05

A party!

0:05:050:05:07

Snoreus set out for the palace straightaway.

0:05:070:05:10

When the girls had finished tidying up, they could follow him.

0:05:100:05:15

Rose was SO excited.

0:05:160:05:19

She could wear her new slippers to the party.

0:05:190:05:22

But Silky and Sulky said, no, Rose could not go to the party.

0:05:220:05:27

There were all the plates to clear and all the sweeping to do.

0:05:270:05:32

And most of all, there were piles and piles of washing.

0:05:320:05:38

Oh, no!

0:05:380:05:40

So, Silky and Sulky left for the party.

0:05:400:05:43

-And Rose was left all alone.

-Oh! That's not fair!

0:05:430:05:49

Rose did her washing. She didn't feel like dancing now.

0:05:510:05:56

No.

0:05:560:05:57

To cheer Rose up, the hippo thought she would do a dance instead.

0:05:570:06:03

Oh, no! She's wet!

0:06:060:06:08

Oh, no.

0:06:080:06:10

Rose's slippers were soaked.

0:06:100:06:12

BIRD SQUAWKS

0:06:160:06:18

But suddenly, a huge bird snatched one of the slippers

0:06:180:06:22

and carried it away.

0:06:220:06:23

FANFARE

0:06:250:06:27

Meanwhile, at the party, Pharaoh wasn't enjoying his party at all.

0:06:270:06:32

He loved dancing.

0:06:320:06:35

But there was no-one he wanted to dance with.

0:06:350:06:39

-He was really fed-up.

-Oh, dear!

0:06:390:06:42

Then, suddenly...

0:06:420:06:44

How amazing!

0:06:440:06:46

A beautiful rose-coloured slipper.

0:06:460:06:49

Who could it belong to?

0:06:500:06:51

-It had to belong to a wonderful dancer.

-Ssh!

0:06:510:06:54

Pharaoh wanted to meet her right away.

0:06:540:06:58

Silky and Sulky knew whose slipper it was.

0:06:580:07:02

But they pretended it belonged to them.

0:07:030:07:06

No, it doesn't belong to you.

0:07:060:07:10

And it doesn't belong to you.

0:07:120:07:15

Poo!

0:07:160:07:18

Silky and Sulky's feet were really, really smelly!

0:07:180:07:22

Of course, there was someone else who knew whose slipper it was.

0:07:240:07:29

Wake up, Snoreus!

0:07:290:07:32

Wake up, Snoreus.

0:07:320:07:34

Wake up, Snoreus!

0:07:340:07:37

When Snoreus said it was Rose's slipper,

0:07:370:07:40

-Pharaoh said he wanted to meet her.

-Ooh!

0:07:400:07:44

They would all sail back to Snoreus' house,

0:07:440:07:48

in the royal boat.

0:07:480:07:50

The slipper fits!

0:07:570:07:58

And Pharaoh and Rose danced and danced, happily ever after.

0:07:580:08:04

The end.

0:08:050:08:07

# Leave your work aside dancing Rose, dancing Rose

0:08:070:08:12

# The Pharaoh and the party came to you

0:08:120:08:16

# You've worked so hard all day dancing Rose, dancing Rose

0:08:160:08:21

# It's time for you to play

0:08:210:08:25

# The slipper fits you well dancing Rose, dancing Rose

0:08:330:08:37

# The story that we will need

0:08:370:08:41

# The Pharaoh came for you dancing Rose, dancing Rose

0:08:410:08:46

# With his love for you so true

0:08:460:08:50

# So, dance... #
