Every morning in the Outback, Ed the little wombat usually wakes up
to the sound of his alarm clock ready for any new surprises.
But this day, Ned wasn't woken by his alarm clock.
THUMPING That's funny!
Something was making a very strange noise.
Hello? Who's there?
-The balloon looked like a piece of pure sunshine!
Ned didn't know where it had come from or how it got there,
-but he knew one thing.
-I don't know who this belongs to,
but it's mine now!
Frank, Buster, look what I found! Isn't it great?
I woke up and there was this donk, donk, donk outside! And there it was!
-It's lovely, Ned!
-Yes! Maybe we should put some notices up in town,
-see if anyone's lost it.
-Oh no! It's mine. Finders keepers is the rule!
You know, Ned, I'm not sure finders keepers is really fair.
Oh! What a brilliant balloon!
It's like...like a bit of sunshine on a string!
-Can I hold it, Ned?
-No, Mitzi. Sorry!
-Oh, don't be a spoilsport.
Oh, all right then.
-Leave it alone, Mitzi! It's mine.
-That's not fair.
-Morning 'all - got a little mail for you here.
-Fine looking balloon , Ned!
Had one just like it myself when I was a nipper. Let's have a look-see.
Sorry, George. I found it, so I'm the only one who can play with it.
Oh! I would've looked after it.
-We know, George.
-Ned's just being mean!
How about a nice cold lemonade while you're here, George?
Don't mind if I do. Thanks.
-No thanks. I've got things to do.
Oh! It's a beauty!
-Oh, come on, Ned! I was only looking.
-What are you doing?
-I'm going to put MY balloon in safe place.
Thanks for the lemonade, Frank.
-Mitzi, are you all right?
-Ned won't even let me touch his balloon.
-It's not fair!
-I know how you feel.
Maybe Ned's just worried that you might let it go by accident.
-Then it would get lost.
-But I said I'd be careful! So did George.
Besides, friends should share things with each other.
That night, before he went to bed, Ned made sure his balloon was safe.
He was planning to have lots of fun with it in the morning.
HE YAWNS Night night!
ALARM CLOCK RINGS
HE GASPS Where's my balloon? It's gone!
-My lovely balloon - it's gone!
-Did you take it?
-Me? What would I want with your silly balloon?
-I know you wanted it.
-I didn't want it. I wanted you to share it.
-Oh, come in, George.
-Do you know what happened to it, George?
-What happened to what?
Ned's lost his balloon.
Oh! Sorry to hear that, Ned, but I haven't seen it.
There's only one explanation!
There must be a gang of balloon thieves in the area.
I don't think balloon stealing is very common, Ned.
Let's come over to your caravan. Maybe we can work out what happened.
Good idea, Frank.
Ned, was this window open last night?
Oh, yeah - I always sleep better with the window open.
I don't think anyone took your balloon.
I think it got caught by a breeze and blown out through here.
Well, did you find it?
Nah, it's gone forever!
Don't give up just yet, Ned.
-Frank'll think of something.
-We could always organise a search.
-BOTH: We're here to help!
I don't see why George and me should help. Ned never shared the balloon.
KOALA BROTHERS: Mitzi!
Ah! All right then!
We'll take the plane and see if we can spot the balloon from the air.
George and Mitzi can help look around here.
-Give us a wave if you find anything.
So, where do we start?
Mitzi, I'm sorry I didn't let you play with my balloon.
That's all right, Ned. Don't worry. We'll find it.
..two, three... Hello there!
You haven't seen a balloon, Archie?
It's gold and it looks like... It looks like...
Like a great big bit of sunshine!
Only on a string.
Ooh, well, now you come to mention it,
I did see something goldish out of the corner of my eye.
-That'll be it!
At the water hole, up in the old tree.
-Water hole! What are we waiting for?
Ooh, one, two...
In the sky above, Frank and Buster weren't having any luck searching.
-I can't see it anywhere.
-Looks like the others are heading for the water hole.
Ah, fellas, I think I've spotted it.
Yes, that's it. You've found it, George!
Here, let me try.
-George, can you get it?
-Me? I don't know. I'll try.
There you go, Ned.
Come on, George!
Nice going, Ned. Hey, that was fun!
It's the best fun I've had since I found it!
-Maybe we should all share...
-My balloon - you've found it!
Oh, thanks, Ned! I love my balloon!
But this balloon isn't your any more. It's mine.
Sammy gave it to Josie yesterday for her hard work in the shop.
It slipped out of my hand and blew away!
-This is the one Josie lost, Ned.
-But I found it, so it's mine!
-Er, Ned. What about Josie?
What am I going to do?
I don't want Josie to be sad, but I love this balloon so much!
There is one thing that would solve this problem.
You might find that you have more fun that way.
But suppose Josie won't share with me,
like I wouldn't share with Mitzi and George?
-Why don't you ask her?
-And that's what Ned did.
Josie, would you like to share the balloon with me?
Well done, Ned!
So everyone spent the rest of the day at the water hole
playing with their special balloon. And thanks to the Koala Brothers,
Ned realised that by sharing things, he could have much more fun!
