In the outback, it's not that easy being a postman,

0:00:340:00:38

especially if you're a turtle.

0:00:380:00:40

PANTING

0:00:400:00:43

George was running late as usual.

0:00:430:00:46

Huh?! But... Oh!

0:00:460:00:49

But he was doing his best.

0:00:490:00:51

George always likes to deliver post in person,

0:00:510:00:55

rather than leaving it in the postbox.

0:00:550:00:58

That's because his favourite part of the day is when he gets to say,

0:00:580:01:03

"Good morning," as he hands over the post.

0:01:030:01:07

GEORGE PANTS

0:01:070:01:10

-Morning, Ned.

-Morning, George. Is there anything for me today?

0:01:100:01:14

Well, er... let me have a little look see.

0:01:140:01:18

HE MUMBLES TO HIMSELF Here you go.

0:01:180:01:22

Ah, thanks, George!

0:01:220:01:24

BOTH: Hi, George! G'day! Now, what have I got here?

0:01:310:01:36

-Hmm, one for you, Frank.

-Thanks, George.

0:01:360:01:39

-And one for you, Buster.

-Oh, thanks, George.

0:01:390:01:43

Hi, George! Have you got anything for me?!

0:01:430:01:48

Morning, Mitzi. Let's have a little look.

0:01:480:01:51

There's three for you, Mitzi.

0:01:510:01:53

Three?! Hey, wow! Thanks, George!

0:01:530:01:57

-Oh, I only got one.

-Come on, Buster. We've got work to do.

0:01:570:02:02

You work in a post office. I expect you get lots and lots of letters.

0:02:030:02:08

Um... No, not really.

0:02:080:02:11

You don't?! Not often, no.

0:02:110:02:14

Bye, Mitzi.

0:02:140:02:16

Now, George would NEVER complain about not getting many letters.

0:02:160:02:21

But Mitzi was surprised.

0:02:210:02:24

Mitzi decided that SHE was going to write HIM a letter.

0:02:240:02:29

Mitzi loved writing letters to her friends.

0:02:290:02:32

But sometimes, she wasn't quite sure what to say.

0:02:320:02:38

Dear, George...

0:02:380:02:40

I like you, cos you're slow. No, no. That's rude.

0:02:400:02:43

Cos you bring the letters! No, he knows that.

0:02:430:02:47

You make me very happy, cos you bring letters from my friends.

0:02:470:02:52

Um, so I know what they're doing!

0:02:520:02:54

Um, love Mitzi. There, that's it!

0:02:540:02:57

After all that, she decided to start again.

0:02:570:03:02

The next morning, when George was emptying the postbox in town...

0:03:030:03:08

< George!

0:03:080:03:09

George!

0:03:090:03:11

Wait!

0:03:120:03:14

I've got this for you. For me?!

0:03:140:03:17

Yes. I wrote you a letter. Oh!

0:03:170:03:21

Oh, thank you, Mitzi. You have to put it in the letter box, though.

0:03:210:03:26

But it's for YOU. Yes.

0:03:260:03:29

But you have to put it in the box so I can collect it properly. Oh, OK.

0:03:290:03:35

- Huh?! It's for me! - Yes, that's what I just said!

0:03:420:03:47

Oh, that's nice. I'll read it later, when I've finished my deliveries.

0:03:470:03:53

- So I can look forward to it. - Oh, OK.

0:03:530:03:57

I'll put it right here, where it's safe.

0:03:570:04:01

One thing was certain - getting a letter from Mitzi

0:04:010:04:05

put George in a really good mood for the rest of the day.

0:04:050:04:09

Morning, Sammy. Morning, Josie. BOTH: Morning, George.

0:04:090:04:14

I got a letter from Mitzi this morning.

0:04:140:04:17

That's nice. Are you gonna open it?

0:04:170:04:20

Oh, no. Not yet. I'm saving it for later.

0:04:200:04:23

George told everyone that day

0:04:240:04:27

how happy he was that he'd got a letter from Mitzi.

0:04:270:04:31

Thanks, George!

0:04:340:04:36

Thanks, George.

0:04:360:04:38

Now, a busy postman sometimes finds

0:04:390:04:42

that with all the walking he does his shoelace comes undone.

0:04:420:04:46

Oh! Not again!

0:04:480:04:50

Uh-oh!

0:04:570:04:59

Meanwhile, the Koala Brothers were going out on their daily patrol.

0:04:590:05:04

-Stand by!

-BOTH: Standing by.

0:05:040:05:07

Chocks away, Buster!

0:05:090:05:12

Chocks away, Frank!

0:05:120:05:15

-Get the gate, Ned!

-I'm getting the gate, Frank!

0:05:150:05:18

-Buckle up, Buster.

-Buckled up.

0:05:210:05:24

George had been looking forward to reading Mitzi's letter all day.

0:05:450:05:50

Oh-oh! Aw!

0:05:510:05:54

Oh!

0:05:540:05:56

Frank and Buster were looking for anyone in need of help.

0:05:580:06:02

It's George!

0:06:060:06:08

-He looks lost!

-But he's a postman!

0:06:080:06:11

-Postmen don't get lost!

-Looks like he needs help, though!

0:06:110:06:17

-What's up, George?

-Mitzi gave me a letter and...

0:06:240:06:28

I've lost it! I don't get many letters!

0:06:280:06:32

-Maybe you dropped it somewhere.

-Why not search the way you came?

0:06:320:06:37

-That's a good idea!

-And we'll fly around

0:06:370:06:41

and see if we spot it from the air!

0:06:410:06:44

Right. Yes. Thank you, Frank.

0:06:440:06:46

-Do you see anything, Buster?

-Yes! Lots!

-Of what?

0:06:590:07:04

-Nothing!

-Nothing?

-Yeah! There's lots and lots of nothing!

0:07:040:07:09

-HE LAUGHS

-Oh, Buster!

0:07:090:07:12

But something caught Buster's eye.

0:07:120:07:14

Look!

0:07:200:07:21

I found a letter on the road! I think George must've dropped it!

0:07:210:07:26

-Well done, Alice.

-We've been looking for that everywhere!

0:07:260:07:30

George'll be really pleased you found it.

0:07:300:07:33

Oh, oh!

0:07:330:07:35

Thank you, Frank! Thank you, Buster! Thank you, Alice.

0:07:350:07:40

I've been looking forward to reading Mitzi's letter all day!

0:07:400:07:44

Bye!

0:07:460:07:48

As George went back to delivering the post, Frank began to think.

0:07:480:07:53

-If getting just ONE letter made him so happy...

-I've got an idea!

0:07:530:07:58

Let's get EVERYONE to write George a letter.

0:07:580:08:01

-BOTH: Yes!

-And that's just what they did.

0:08:010:08:06

Everyone wrote George a letter.

0:08:070:08:11

The next day, George went to the postbox as usual,

0:08:150:08:18

to collect the letters.

0:08:180:08:21

Oh! I can't wait!

0:08:210:08:24

George found there was ANOTHER letter for him.

0:08:250:08:29

And another one! And another!

0:08:310:08:34

In fact, they were ALL for George!

0:08:340:08:37

-ALL: Hooray!

-They're all for me!

0:08:370:08:42

-LAUGHTER

-We know! We all wrote you a letter!

0:08:420:08:48

I wanted to write you a letter, George, to say something,

0:08:480:08:52

but I couldn't think of the words.

0:08:520:08:54

And then, I thought I could say it much better like this!

0:08:540:08:59

Oh, thank you. Thank you, everyone.

0:09:010:09:03

And you, Buster. ..I'm so pleased, I don't know what to say.

0:09:030:09:08

You know, if you replied to them,

0:09:080:09:11

you'd probably get lots more letters back!

0:09:110:09:14

And that's exactly what George did.

0:09:140:09:17

Unfortunately, it took George so long

0:09:180:09:21

to write replies to each of the letters,

0:09:210:09:25

that the post was delivered even later than usual.

0:09:250:09:29

But nobody minded. It's good to make your friends feel wanted.
