to the beginning of the show, we can– (Panting) ELIZABETH:
Thanks, Eddy. I think we need to– DIAMONDS:
Those are lovely, Eddy! Thanks! (Panting) Hey, Eddy do you– In a minute, Marvin. Stripes likes his paper
first thing! Need a hoof with anything? I think we need to revise
this “To Do” list, Marvin. You want me to what? Take the afternoon off. Right, all work and no play is no way for a kid
to spend his summer! But I like the work! And– And I’ve still got
lots to do and I got– We’ll take care of your chores
for today. Go have some fun! “Fun”? Where would I go? Are you kidding? Take a look! Oh, yeah. ♪ (Laughing) ♪ (Laughing) ♪ Yeah! Wow! What a swell day! I ate one of everything! Oh, I drank one of everything. Got to go! Meet you back at the tents! (Bicycle bell ringing) Eddy, I have an urgent
delivery for Jack! Thanks, Fred. I’ll take it! I’d better get it to him
on the double. (Bicycle bell ringing) PETE:
Step right up!
And try your luck! But first, I’ll just say hello
to Squinty Pete! Step right up, folks! You haven’t been to the carnival
till you’ve whomped a weasel! They’re fast, furry and fun!
And it doesn’t hurt ’em a bit! Hey, Eddy! Hi, Squinty Pete! I almost didn’t recognize you
without your broom! (Chuckling) Say, Eddy,
could you get this started by whomping a weasel or two
for me? Me?
But I’ve never whomped before. Oh, it’s easy! Watch this! (Squeaking) I suppose just a couple
of whomps wouldn’t hurt. (Bell clanging) (Squeaking) Keep your eye on the weasel,
Eddy! (Bell clanging) We’ve got a natural here, folks! (Bell clanging) And the prize goes to Eddy! (Cheering) (Blowing) Set ’em up again, Squinty Pete. ♪ (Bell clanging) (Cheering) (Whistling) (Bell clanging) Wow! You just got
the highest score ever! (Cheering) (Bell clanging) (Snoring) Here you are, Eddy. Have a good afternoon off? Huh? Sure, did I ever,
especially this game! I could play it all day! Uh, you did, actually. Your grandmother called.
And you’re late for dinner. Aww, Marvin,
I had that weasel whomped! Tomorrow is another day,
okay, pal? Okay. Whomp you later, boys! (Insects chirping) GRANDMOTHER:
Edward? Edward, can you hear me? (Banging) Edward! What? I mean, yes, Grandma? Please do not play
with your food. I’m not playing, Grandma!
I’m practicing! There is a time for whomping
weasels and a time to eat. So, please settle down. (Eddy grunting) GRANDMOTHER:
Edward, lights out, dear! Be the weasel. Be the weasel.
Be the weasel. (Bell clanging) (Squeaking) (Snoring) See who’s at the door,
Mr. Grizzly. (Snoring) Goodness! (Snoring) (Gasping) What is that thumping noise? I think I know. Gee, Eddy, couldn’t you wait for it to open
before you started playing? I was up all night
thinking of a new strategy. Uh, “strategy”?
To whomp weasels? The triple whomp! Uh, great, but everyone
is getting a bit grumpy without their breakfast. Umm, “breakfast”? You know,
that first meal of the day? Usually served by you? Oh, right, my chores! (Bell clanging) Got you! (Blowing) If you want to whomp a weasel, you got to flick the wrist,
Stripes. Really? Well, why don’t you whomp this
corn over to Elizabeth then? Oops! Sorry. Here you go. Hey, you nearly soaked
Mr. Grizzly! Observe. Uh, I’ll try to remember that,
Eddy. I’m even thinking of getting
my own personal mallet. Uh, Eddy,
that’s Stripes’ paper. Oh, right. Could you take it
to him, Diamonds? I’m kind of rushed today! Is Eddy all right? My corn on the cob is frozen. Maybe it’s a corn-sicle? Hey, working hard as usual,
I see. That’s it! Hey, Marvin,
can you finish this for me? I got to do something! Ed– Oh. Squinty Pete,
I think I’ve got it! That’s great! Got what? The triple deluxe weasel whomp.
Observe. (Bell clanging) Impressive. One more time? Rack ’em, Squinty! I don’t mind helping Eddy with
his chores, as long as he– What are you doing? Oh, just hauling ice to
the lemonade stand for Eddy. But my trunk “frozed” up. (Coughing) Eddy’s got me cooking
my own chickens! But that’s his job. He asked me to clean
the dunking tank! But I’m getting all wrinkly! Maybe you better talk to Eddy. You’re right. Marvin, we’re in big trouble! What’s wrong, Jack? The Carnival Inspector called. He’s on his way over! Look! This place is a mess! If we don’t pass inspection,
we’ll be shut down! Can’t you ask for
a postponement? I already did, no dice! A notice was delivered yesterday
and signed for by Eddy! (Gasping) Jack, you stall the inspector.
I’ll find Eddy. (Bell clanging) Eddy! Hi!
I almost broke my own record! Eddy, this isn’t the time
for playing games. Just a sec, Marvin. The Carnival Inspector
is coming! “The Carnival Inspector”?
Uh-oh. “Uh-oh” is right! He says he sent a notice
and you signed for it. Oh, no, the envelope,
I forgot to deliver it to Jack! I forgot about everything. Look at this place! I’ll never
get it cleaned up in time! STRIPES:
Oh, yes, you will. You guys are the best! Let’s go! ♪ (Gasping) Hmm. (Gasping) Hmm. ♪ Hmm. Uh-huh. Whoa! Whoa! (Groaning) Now the biggie:
performance tent cleanliness! Mm-hmm. Uh-huh. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. (Tisking) Hmm. Uh-huh. Hmm. (Clearing throat) (Gasping) Uh-huh. Jack… Nice job. You pass! (Cheering) I understand
that you’re in charge of cleaning up around here,
young man. Congratulations! Thanks. But it’s my friends
who deserve the credit. Jack you should give this boy
some time off. He’s working too hard! See you later! Nice to see you! Whew! That was close. Sorry, everyone. I promise never
to let my play time get in the way of my work again. Good idea. Makes sense to me. You got it. But since we’re all cleaned up, who’s up for
some Whomp-A-Weasel? Yeah, I always wanted
to play that game! Uh, what’s that wrist thing
you were talking about, Eddy? Rack ’em up, Squinty! (Birds chirping) ♪ (Squeaking) Hey, Jimmy. Whoa! How you doing, Ray? Hi! Nice Day, Irma. Hello. (Whistling) Hmm. What are you looking at? We’re keeping an eye on Jack
and his visitor! His very important visitor. Who is it? It’s the Mayor! (Laughing) I hope nothing’s wrong! Why should anything be wrong? Hey, Jack! (Laughing) Good news: The Mayor is coming
to the big show tonight! If he likes it,
we’ll be in all the papers! Everyone in town
will want to come! Wow! I bet he’ll even declare
a holiday in our honour: Carnival Day! Ooh, I like the sound of that! Uh, Jack, shouldn’t you
catch up with the Mayor? Oh, right. Uh, see you later! The Mayor at our show,
it’s so exciting! I’m getting nervous already! You should be! Everybody knows the Mayor’s
impossible to please! He looked friendly enough. What have you heard? I heard he tore down
the bandstand in the town square because the music was too loud. Oh, dear! Ah, that’s just a rumour! If he doesn’t like
our performance, maybe he’ll close us down. (Gasping) (Groaning) ♪ Ouch! Oh! (Gasping) Oh! Oh! Oh! (Screaming) (Gasping) (Cat screeching) STRIPES:
Ow! (Groaning) Hi, gang! How’s rehearsal going? I fell off my ball! Oh, Marvin, we’re so nervous
about the mayor that everything’s going wrong! I know a few tricks
to overcome nerves. Try this, Elizabeth: picture the
Mayor in his underwear! Oh, Marvin! (Chuckling) Is that what you do, Marvin? Uh, no, actually, I don’t. Eddy, bring me my hat. I never get nervous because I’ve learned
the best technique of all! ♪ You’ve got to ♪ ♪ Be yourself, know yourself ♪ ♪ Trust yourself,

My lucky hat is missing? But, umm, I always perform
with my lucky hat! Without it I, why, I’d– I, uh, uh… I’d forget my steps
or sing out of tune or lose my voice! Whoa! Whoa! I might even trip and land
right in the Mayor’s lap! That’s it! I’m not performing
without my lucky hat! But you said all you need
is confidence! Confidence, and my lucky hat! We can’t do the show
without Marvin! Well then,
we just got to find that hat. (Birds chirping) Nope, not there either. Hmm. A-ha! Oh, great! Is it there? Did you find it? Well, no, but you’ve got lots of
other hats here, you know. Nope. Uh-uh. No. Yuck. Hmm. Absolutely not. No. Blech. Well, this looks pretty lucky
to me, Marvin. (Sneezing) Thanks for trying, Eddy.
But there’s only one lucky hat. Where would a lost hat be? Hey, in the lost and found! Good thinking, Eddy! (Grunting) It’s pretty full. Oh, I hope my hat
isn’t squished. Hmm. Wow! Some things
should just stay lost. Watch it, smarty-horse.
Those are mine! Uh, I meant, uh, they really
could only be worn by a colourful and glamorous
person like yourself, Edna! Oh! Ah, go on! And one more sock,
that makes 17! Jumping jackrabbits! None of them match! Where else can we look? There are still
lots of places to look, come on! ♪ Yeow! (Grumbling) (Giggling) Hmm. Hmm. (Gasping) (Screaming) (Sighing) (Sighing) (Insects chirping) Sorry, Marvin.
We’ve looked everywhere. Thanks anyway, Eddy. Marvin, you’re a great dancer
and a terrific singer. Why do you even need that hat? I just do. That’s all. Hmm. I’m sorry, everybody. But I just can’t perform
without my hat. I never met anyone so stubborn. Are you sure
you’re not part mule? I found a four-leafed clover.
They’re lucky. And I found a gold button.
I bet it’s lucky too! My Ramona’s lucky.
Here, you take her. Oh, thank you all.
But only my lucky hat will do. And until I feel it
on my head again– Hey, my hat! Think you can perform now? Eddy, you did it! You saved the day! But where’d you find it?
I thought we looked everywhere! JACK:
Ladies and gentlemen,
children of all ages, please welcome
Marvin the Tap-Dancing Horse! That’s your cue! Mr. Mayor, here I come! Hey, I don’t
feel nervous anymore! Me neither! (Cheering) You’ve got to– ♪ Be yourself, know yourself ♪ ♪ Trust yourself,

We’re glad you liked it. “Liked it”? I loved it. I’ve loved carnivals
since I was your size. Uh, do you think I could have my hat back now, son? Uh, yes, sir. Thank you, sir. (Laughing) In light of
the world class entertainment these folks provide, I’m happy to declare
next Friday Carnival Day! (Cheering) (Flash bulbs clicking) Uh, just make sure
you put that in all the papers and get my name
spelled properly. So, that wasn’t my hat? I don’t understand. Marvin, you practice hard.
You always try your best. And you have confidence
in yourself. That’s why your show was good, not because of
some silly old hat. Say, Marvin,
I forgot to tell you. I’m sorry. But, this morning,
I accidentally sat on your hat. Maybe it can be fixed? Oops! I don’t think so. That’s okay, Jack. I don’t really need it,
not anymore. Yay, Marvin! Sensational! STRIPES:
Way to go, Marvin!
You did it by yourself. ♪
