Narrator: "Princess Sapphire was grumbling to the other Princes."

Princess Sapphire: "I spend my time pulling Flowers about, ready for you to take out on journeys."

Narrator: "The other Princes laughed."

Princess Sapphire: "Why can't I take passengers, too?"

Duke Duralumon: "You're too impatient."

Narrator: "They said."

Duke Duralumon: "You'd be sure to leave something behind."

Princess Sapphire: "Rubbish!"

Narrator: "Said Princess Sapphire."

Princess Sapphire: "I'll show you."

Narrator: "One night, she and The King were alone. The King was ill. The animators worked hard, but he didn't get better.

She felt just as bad next morning. The usually took the first passengers, and Princess Sapphire had to get his flowers ready."

Princess Sapphire: "If The King is ill,"

Narrator: "She thought."

Princess Sapphire: Perhaps I shall take his Flowers."

Narrator: "Princess Sapphire ran to find the Flowers."

Princess Sapphire: "Come along, come along!"

Narrator: "She fussed."

Flowers: "There's plenty of time, there's plenty of time."

Narrator: "They grumbled.

Princess Sapphire took them to the platform, and wanted to run around in front at once.

But her animator wouldn't let him."

Princess Sapphire's Animator: "Don't be impatient, Princess Sapphire!"

Narrator: "Princess Sapphire waited and waited.

People got on board, the animators walked up and down, they secured the plants, and still, The King didn't come. Princess Sapphire got more and more excited.

Pongo came to see what was the matter, and the animators told him about The King."

Pongo: "Find another Prince of Princess."

Narrator: "He ordered."

Animators: "There's only Princess Sapphire."

Narrator: "They said."

Pongo: "You'll have to do it then, Princess Sapphire. Be quick now."

Princess Sapphire's Animator: "Let's not be impatient, Mickey."

Narrator: "Said her animator."

Princess Sapphire's Animator: "We'll wait till' everything is ready.

Narrator: But Princess Sapphire was too excited to listen.

What happened then, nobody knows. Perhaps the first flower forgot to grab Princess Sapphire, or perhaps Princess Sapphire was given the signal by mistake. Anyhow, Princess Sapphire started without her flowers. As she passed the first signal tower, animators waved and shouted, but she didn't stop."

Princess Sapphire: "They're waving because I'm such a splendid princess.

Narrator: "She thought importantly."

Princess Sapphire: "The King says it's hard to pull Flowers, but I think it's easy.

Hurry, hurry, hurry!"

Narrator: "She puffed, pretending to be like Duke Duarlumon."

Princess Sapphire: "People have never seen me taking passengers before. It's nice of them to wave."

Narrator: "And he whistled."

Princess Sapphire: "Thank you."

Narrator: "Then she came to a signal at 'Danger'."

Princess Sapphire: "Bother!"

Narrator: "She said."

Princess Sapphire: "I Must stop, and I was going so nicely, too! What a nuisance signals are."

Narrator: "She blew an angry whistle.

The Animator ran up."

Animator: "Hello, Princess Sapphire."

Narrator: "He said."

Animator: "What are you doing here?"

Princess Sapphire: "I'm pulling Flowers."

Narrator: "Said Princess Sapphire."

Princess Sapphire: "Can't you see?"

Animator: "Where are your flowers, then?"

Narrator: "Princess Sapphire looked back."

Princess Sapphire: "Why, bless me!"

Narrator: "She said."

Princess Sapphire: "If we haven't left them behind!"

Animator: "Yes."

Narrator: "Said the animator."

Animator: "You'd better go back quickly and fetch them."

Narrator: "Poor Princess Sapphire was so sad, she nearly cried.

Princess Sapphire's Animator: "Cheer up."

Narrator: "Said her animator."

Princess Sapphire's Animator: "Let's go back quickly and try again."

Narrator: "At the station, all the passengers were talking at once. They were telling Pongo what a bad place Disneyland was. But when Princess Sapphire came back, they saw how sad she was, and couldn't be cross.

She held on to the Flowers, and this time he really pulled them.

Afterwards, the other Princes laughed at Princess Sapphire and said,"

The King and Baron Nylon: "Look, there's Princess Sapphire, who wanted to take some passengers, but forgot about the flowers!"

Narrator: "But Princess Sapphire had already learned not to make the same mistake again."
