One day, Ned the little wombat
was out for a walk, minding his own business,
when he made a surprise discovery.
Being a curious little wombat,
he decided to investigate.
And there it was.
It's not often that you see a boat in the outback
and Ned was very excited!
SEA SHANTY PLAYS
This was the best thing ever!
And Ned couldn't wait to show the koala brothers.
Back at the koala brothers' house,
Frank and Buster were cleaning the plane, when...
Hello! Hello, Frank. Hello, Buster. Look what I've found.
-BOTH: Hello, Ned.
-It's very nice, don't you think?
-Oh, um...yes, Ned.
-Yes, it is!
I've decided to be a sea captain.
Yes. This is going to be my ship.
Mmm, needs a bit of work but there's something to do first.
Wait here. Don't go away!
There was something Ned had to find -
something that would make him feel like a real sea captain.
It was here somewhere!
Look! Look! I've got the hat,
just like a real sea captain.
Oh! I see. Sorry.
-There you go!
So...how do I look now?
-Yeah, just like a real sea captain!
-I'm a bit worried about your ship, though.
-What do you mean?
-I think it might be too broken to fix.
Well, I mean, um...
you might be able to fix it, if you get somebody to help.
Could you two help me fix it?
-Of course we could.
-We're the koala brothers.
BOTH: We're here to help!
-I'd have to be in charge, though, cos
-have the hat!
-And you're supposed to salute when you see me.
BOTH: Aye! Aye! Captain!
So the koala brothers set to work repairing Ned's boat...
..and saluting Captain Ned.
Wow, you've made a ship! A real ship with a sail and everything.
Oh, it's really big!
Yes, Mitzi, and it's my ship and I'm the captain... See?
Oh, great hat, Ned. So, where are you going to sail it?
You'll need lots of water.
You must have water, Ned. How can you sail without water?
-The water hole!
Great idea, Frank... Ned!
-What about the water hole?
-Yeah! That's it!
We'll drag the ship to the water hole.
THEY STRAIN AND GROAN
Oh, the ship's too heavy. We'll never get it to the water hole.
-Yes, we will, Ned. We'll think of something.
Maybe you should put it on wheels. ALL: Oh!
And that's just what they did.
Can you go any faster?
Ah, it's so quiet here -
-just us and the sound of crickets.
-And the odd sailing ship!
Hi, there, Alice. Hi, Archie!
We've built a ship for Ned.
-It's Captain Ned!
-Sorry, Captain Ned!
We were wondering if we could sail it in the water hole.
-I don't see why not.
Thanks, Alice! Thanks, Archie!
-Get ready to launch the ship!
BOTH: Aye! Aye! Captain!
-Wish me luck!
-ALL: Good luck!
MITZI: Good luck!
-ALL: Yeah! Go, Ned!
MITZI: Why's he stopped?
Oh, I'm stuck!
It's the water, it's not deep enough.
Oh, this is no good. I can't be a real sea captain in a water hole.
What's up with him? I think he's upset.
-He DID want to be a sea captain.
-We should go after him.
He can't leave the boat here.
What if somebody wanted to swim? It's in the way!
While they pulled Ned's ship out of the water...
MITZI: I AM pulling!
..Buster went to talk to Ned.
It's not fair!
-I just wanted to be a sea captain.
Well, maybe you can still be a sea captain,
-if you really want to.
Well, Frank'll think of something.
And Buster was right. While the others were resting,
Frank had been thinking of an idea.
Frank? We're going to have to help Ned. He's really sad.
-Sh! I'm thinking!
I think, with just a bit more breeze...
-Yes! It'll work!
You've done it! It's sailing!
ALL: Oh! It's sailing!
-Go and get Ned, Buster.
-OK. Wait! Wait there!
This time, the launch of Captain Ned's ship was a big success.
Look at Ned!
You mean, Captain Ned!
With the koala brothers' help, Ned did get to sail his ship -
even without the sea!
And Captain Ned was the proudest sea captain
to ever sail the outback.
