The Ash and Pikachu Show-Season 2


ANP #026: Pika Power!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene clad in a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses)

Brock: I hope you enjoyed the summer, 'cause we're in for a year of insanity! (smiles as the scene fades out over one last hit of music)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! We're going to kick this season off by focusing on my longtime partner, Pikachu!

(applause as Pikachu runs onstage next to Ash and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Just to be more specific, we're going to be focusing on his greatest Gym battle: when he faced Lt. Surge. (A picture of Lt. Surge unfurls next to Ash)

Pikachu: Pika pika pi pika chu! (gives Ash an annoyed shock)

Ash: All right, I'll stop talking and start the projector... (mild laughter as Ash walks to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Electric Shock Showdown", part 1)

(Backstage...Misty is checking various boxes)

Misty: Now I know the prop crew has another pad of drawing paper here someplace...(she checks more boxes, but to no avail)

May: That's nothing compared to losing a box of golf balls before going to Petalburg Highlands...best golf course in Houen, Dad said, so I decided to play a round for myself...

Misty: Oh, really? (closes up the box she's looking through and listens as May begins her story)

(On Our way interlude as the title card appears: "'Par for the Course' starring May" May's face appears in the round part of the a in her name)

(Flashback-May is listening as Norman talks to her)

May(voiceover): It started when Dad told me Petalburg Highlands was holding a "Ladies Day" promotion. So naturally, I wanted to go play a round. (At this, May drags Norman out the door, down a few streets, and into a sporting goods store)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, sounds simple enough...

May(voiceover): The only hard part was keeping my team under control in the store. (May and Norman stand in the middle of one aisle, embarrassed, as Combusken delivers a kick into a stack of tennis shoes. Beautifly flits about, a trail of sports team bandannas behind her, Skitty chases various balls around, Munchlax attempts to consume a soccer ball, Squirtle fires an arrow into a target, and Eevee juggles some ping pong balls)

Misty(voiceover): So after getting your crew under control, you got balls, clubs, a bag, the works, right?

May(voiceover): Eventually we got what we came for. (May and Norman exit the store with several packages. Munchlax, meanwhile is consuming anything edible that's lying on the sidewalk. His footprints spell "The End")

(end flashback)

Misty: Sounds interesting...maybe you'll tell me more next show. (resumes looking for a pad)

May: I will! It gets interesting once we get on the course! (Misty smiles, then resumes looking) Until then, you guys can watch more of Pikachu's battle. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Electric Shock Showdown", part 2)

(We join Ash onstage, where Brock is tuning his guitar)

Ash: Now...since we have a new season, that also means Brock has new songs to sing for you....(mild applause) starting with this one.

Brock: Take it, guys...

(music begins)

Brock: Never know what's 'round the bend
We go up a hill and down again
And when there's trouble we'll get through
We always have and we always do

Nothing in the world can bring us down
No, not us
We'll spread a little sunshine all around
There's never enough

All we wanna do is have a good time
Havin' lots of fun with all these friends of mine
All we wanna do is celebrate
Ev'rytime we've been together it's been great
Looking for adventure, big and small
Just being with a friend like you is all we wanna do

All my friends are here with me
And things are good as they can be (Oh, yeah)
Travel places near and far
But home is always where we are

Travelin' the world is what we do
Because
Ev'rywhere we go there's something new
For us

All we wanna do is have a good time
Havin' lots of fun with all these friends of mine
All we wanna do is celebrate
Ev'rytime we've been together it's been great
Looking for adventure, big and small
Just being with a friend like you is all we wanna do

Do you wanna come along?
Just be prepared for anything
Get into the flow! Get ready to go!
Get ready to spread your wings!

Yeah!

And all we wanna do is have a good time
Havin' lots of fun with all these friends of mine
All we wanna do is celebrate
Ev'rytime we've been together it's been great
Looking for adventure, big and small
Just being with a friend like you is all we wanna do

All we wanna do is have a good time
Havin' lots of fun with all these friends of mine
All we wanna do is celebrate
Ev'rytime we've been together it's been great
Looking for adventure, big and small
Just being with a friend like you is all we wanna do! (applause as Brock bows)

Pikachu: Pika! Pika!

Ash: That was an appropriate song, Brock...

Brock: I wrote it to celebrate the strong friendship you and Pikachu have.

Ash: Really? Thanks...

(Some "Aww"'s are heard as Ash and Brock hug)

Pikachu: Pika pi?

Ash: Okay...now, the exciting conclusion of Pikachu's battle. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Electric Shock Showdown", part 3)

(We join Ash and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Well...was that a great battle, or what? (enthusiastic cheers)

Misty(offstage): Found it! (Misty comes onstage with a new drawing pad)

Ash: Save the comic for next show, Misty...we're almost out of time!

Misty: It's okay! I had cartoonist's block tonight, anyway. (mild laughter)

Ash: See ya next time! (he and Misty wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way reprise plays as the credits roll.)

It is nice. I see you giving May a bigger role in the show. I would like a Misty cartoon. I guess it is ok. I can't wait to see the next one. Sailor Moon?

Actualy, Sailor Moon and her friends are coming to visit Ash and co.

I cut the comic to field test the new segment (plus I didn't have any ideas for a comic this time)

ANP #027: He is the One Named Ash Ketchum

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash".

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: If Sailor Moon fights evil by moonlight, why can't she do it by daylight too? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We join Ash onstage)

Ash: Thank you! Let's give the Transporter a whirl this time... (starts over to the Transporter, where Brock is messing with the buttons again) GAH!!! (rushes to stop Brock, but hits the ENTER button by mistake as he falls to the floor, entering the coordinates on the way down)

Transporter: Coordinates entered: 030792. Destination: Silver Millenium. (The portal appears, just as Misty rushes onstage to see what's going on)

Misty: What happened?

Ash: In an attempt to stop Brock from entering coordinates, I accidentally entered them myself...and it's contacting the Sailor Moon universe!

Misty: Please hope you didn't summon a youma... (steps aside as the 4 Inner Senshi, Moon, and Luna arrive, piled in a heap.)

Moon: Where are we? Last thing I remember was being sucked into this blue light...

(Mercury summons her VR Visor)

Mercury: We appear to have landed in a crowded theater while a show was in progress...(scans the transporter) That computer there is what summoned us here...due to human error.

Venus: We got called here where this cute little mouse lives (pets Pikachu) due to THAT?

(At this, May rushes onstage, piqued by the talking)

May: Oh my...all five Senshi! Here?

Ash: Blame Brock for entering the coordinates....(weakly stands up) Welcome to the show, girls...(applause as the Senshi wave to the crowd. Moon is especially thrilled about being on TV)

Moon: I'm on TV! And that mouse is a hidden camera, right? (picks up Pikachu and shouts in his face) HI, MOM!!!

Pikachu: CHU!!! (shocks Moon)

Ash: Careful around Pikachu, girls...he will shock you if you harass him.

Mars: Tell that to Meatball-head...(laughter as we look on a shocked Moon)

Brock: A cartoon for our lovely ladies? (wheels out the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Raye's Day in the Spotlight")

(Backstage, the Senshi explore the various rooms, with Ash as their tour guide)

Ash: Here's the drawing board...Misty's pencils are magic, so whatever she draws comes to life! (Misty smiles as she sits down before the board)

(Just then, Brock appears before Moon, heart eyes and all)

Brock: I'd defend you from any old youma, my lovely one!

(an ice blast is seen)

Mercury(voiceover): Shine Aqua Illusion!

(a fire blast is seen)

Mars(voiceover): Burning Mandala!

(a thunderbolt blast is seen)

Jupiter(voiceover): Sparkling Wide Pressure!

(a chain made of hearts appears)

Venus(voiceover): Venus Love Me Chain!

(When we see Brock again, he's frozen on one half, small fires dot him, thunderbolts criss cross his upper half, and the Venus Love Me Chain is wrapped around his legs)

Brock: Ow... (hops off)

Misty: Thanks, you guys... (Luna climbs on the drawing board to watch as Misty goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)
(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Luna(voiceover): I wonder how our character would fare as a Sailor Senshi?

(The pencil draws a transformation stick at Brock's feet)

Brock: Onix, Pokemon power! Make Up!

(Cue transformation sequence)

(When Brock emerges, he's now in an elaborate gray vest and matching pants)

Misty(voiceover): Here's a youma for you, Sailor Onix. (the pencil draws a Tyranitar-like monster)

Brock: Jewel Blaster! (various gemstones emerge from Brock's hands and rain on the monster)

Luna(voiceover): Good work, Sailor Onix! Now use your Strata Bolt attack!

Brock: Strata Bolt! (a spear of rock pierces the monster)

(The monster gets mad, chasing Brock into the real world!)

(a dust cloud ensues as the Senshi look on)

(Finally, Brock emerges from the cloud (in his normal clothes) and grabs an eraser)

Brock: Onix Rocky Eraser! (erases the monster)

Moon: Luna, why can't I have a magic eraser?

Mars: It would make some battles end quicker... (pets Pikachu)

Pikachu: Chu? (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Much Ado About Babysitting")

(We join Ash onstage as the Senshi emerge from backstage--Brock is nearby, tuning his guitar. May is prepping the Transporter)

Moon: That was fun!

Ash: We have one last thing for you before you return...take it Brock.

::guitar intro::

Brock: Will you miss me when I'm gone?
Will you remember all the good times we've had?
The hardest thing about leaving is saying goodbye.

We'll always be the greatest of friends.
I'll miss you more than I can say.
And when I'm blue, I'll just dream about you.
I'll be only a memory away....

(guitar solo)

We'll always be the greatest of friends.
I'll miss you more than I can say.
And when I'm blue, I'll just dream about you.
I'll be only a memory away....

You're something special to me.
Friendship is something that money can't buy.
And if you need me, you know that I'll be there for you.

We'll always be the greatest of friends.
I'll miss you more than I can say.
And when you dream, I'll be there for you.
I'll be only a memory away....

We'll always be the greatest of friends.
I'll miss you more than I can say.
And when you dream, I'll be there for you.
I'll be only a memory away-i-ay.... (applause as Brock bows. He waves goodbye as the portal with the Senshi inside closes up)

Brock: Farewell, my lovely ones! May you always keep fighting for love and justice!

Misty: Here, watch this... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Food Fetish")

(We join Ash and the gang onstage)

Ash: Well, we're about out of time...

May: Meeting the Sailors was nice!

Brock: She is so beautiful...(admires a picture of Moon)

Ash: See you next time!

Pikachu: Pikachu! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" plays as the credits roll)

I guess we finally saw Sailor Brock. I remember from last season. Nice. This one was funny. I wonder if they will miss Brock?

What do you mean by Orange Flaaffy guest stars?

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Attention supervillains: Please refrain from taking over the world while the show is in session. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight--(spots Brock messing with the buttons again) Uh-oh!

(Misty runs onstage, concerned)

Misty: What's happening?

Transporter: Coordinates entered: 081405 Destination: Earth 619

Misty: What universe is that?

Ash: Beats me...

(Six people appear and two appear to have light blue skin, webbed hands and dark green eyes. One is a male wearing a dark green and gold uniform with a black manta ray symbol. The other is a green haired lady wearing purple and pink. The rest include: A blonde woman in a blue and gold uniform, a Redheaded woman with a uniform like Jenna's but it has a miniskirt and a midrif. The other two are a tanned man with a red and white uniform and giant white bird-like wings. The last is a man in a blue and white uniform. He is of African American descent and he begins to speak.)

Marcus: What a way to get to one of your, gigs, 'quita!

Aquita: Marcus, I didn't plan this!

Ash: Who are you guys?

Jenna: Hang on guys. (holds hands up) We're the Starbolts, a division of the Agents of S.T.A.R. My name is Javelin. We're superheroes.

Crystal: Pfft, Nice first contact, Blondie. Guy with the vest over there's cute. (waves in Brock's direction) Hiyah Sugah!

Brock: Hello there, my lovely one! (laughter)

(Crystal walks over and puts hand around Brock)

Crystal: Why hello there. (smooch on the cheek) What do you say we ditch the losers and find a nice place to (whisper in Brock's ear)

M'anta: Okay, Crystal..you can turn off the act! (pulls her away.) Sorry about that, Brock. Oh and name's M'anta J'arrsti. I'm prince of my world.

Aquita: Yeah. I'm his older sister, Aquita (feels Mateo behind her)That guy with the wings is Mateo.

Mateo: Hola. How are you guys?

Aquita: And last we have Marcus.

Marcus: (runs up to Misty at superspeed) Hey there, red. How's it going? I'm the fastest man alive. Check this out! (runs and comes back with flowers)

Misty: Thank you...I think. (takes the flowers and sniffs them)

Ash: Let's start the cartoon...

(CARTOON-"The Superhero Secret", part 1)

(The Starbolts watch, wide-eyed, as Ash rewinds the reel)

Marcus: What in the world was that?! *jaw drops*

Jenna: Umm..you do realize we don't act like that when we do stuff.

M'anta: I would hope not. Is that guy like ripping off a comic character?

Mateo: Yeah, amigo. Totally rips off Batman.

Crystal: Pfft loser was so fat..It's a wonder he FIT in that uniform.

Jenna: Crystal..mind your manners would you.

Crystal: Like I care. (crosses arms)

May: That's nothing compared to my first trip to Petalburg Highlands

Marcus: Petalburg Highlands? What's Petalburg?

M'anta: I have no clue. Why's that yellow animal looking at me funny? (instinctively sparks a bit)

Ash: Pikachu's just curious about you, okay?

M'anta: Okay. (powers down and picks up Pikachu)

May: Here's my trip to Petalburg Highlands...(the Starbolts listen intently)

("On Our Way" interlude as the title card appears: "'Par for the Course' starring May" May's face appears in the round part of the a in her name)

(Flashback-May is struggling to put on a golf shirt)

May(voiceover): It started by getting the dumb shirt on...half the ones we bought were either too small...(we see May with the shirt bunched around her) or too big (May is buried in the shirt, making it hard for her to see.)

Ash(voiceover): You had a shirt that fit, didn't you?

May: Yeah...but having Eevee in it with me didn't help! (laughter as May struggles to get a shirt on; some results include Eevee peeking in the headhole, May's head in an armhole, May's and Eevee's heads in one armhole, and May's and Eevee's heads in opposite armholes)

Brock: So we got dressed and on the course... (a remote appears and fast fowards the flashback, stopping at a shot of May preparing to tee off on the first hole)

May: Then I had to tell Eevee the ball wasn't supposed to be fetched! (laughter as May tees off...but Eevee brings the ball back. May tees off again...but Eevee brings it back again...May sighs in frustration as Eevee brings the ball back--the words THE END appear on the ball)

Jenna: Interesting way to play golf.

Aquita: That Earth sport's really confuses me.

M'anta: I know what you mean, 'Quita. Give me hoverball any day.

(Ash just sighs and starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Superhero Secret", part 2)

Mateo: Okay, could this "Gligarman"guy be any more dense? How is he supposed to fight bad guys and seriously..Team Rocket talks too much.

Aquita: Easy, amasa (peck on the cheek) Don't get worked up.

Crystal: Oh would you two find a room?!

Ash: Break it up, girls! (pulls Aquita and Crystal apart.) Now...we usually have a musical number at this time...

Aquita: Music? Allow me!

(music begins as Aquita appears in a spotlight)

Aquita: Mmm hmm..Ooh yeah!
When you look to the sky they're there.
Anytime anywhere..they seem to not have a care.
But, you should know..
That inside you there's a hero, too.
Just waiting to be born!

(music picks up and Aquita twirls around to face the audiance and moves to the music as the band keeps up with the Pop style song with drums, guitars and keyboards upping the pace)

Heroes! They're all about savin' the world!
Any time. Any place. Have you heard?
You can be a hero too. Just believe in your heart.
It's a great place to start!
And you can someone's hero, too!

(Aquita continues to dance as Mateo comes on stage too and she starts dancing around him and continues to sing as he dances as Aquita dances around him. The spotlights shift around as Aquita starts to sing again.)

It doesn't matter if you have wings.
All you need is a special thing.
Your heart will know and guide you so because that's how the heroes know...
They've made a difference in our lives.
You just need to let yours out and start to shout
"I can be a hero, too!"

(Mateo grins and takes to the air around the stage and flies around as blue lights dazzle around him. Funny thing is..HE's generating them. Aquita smiles and the band continues to play a fast beat and slows down.)

Heroes! They're all about savin' the world!
Any time. Any place. Have you heard?
You can be a hero too. Just believe in your heart.
It's a great place to start!
And you can someone's hero, too!

If you find the world is caving in.
And you want to be someone's friend.
All you need to do is look inside and be the hero too!
Just look inside and fill your heart with pride!
You can be a hero for all time!

(Aquita starts her big finish by clapping her hands and tapping her foot to the beat again.)

Heroes! They're all about savin' the world!
Any time. Any place. Have you heard?
You can be a hero too. Just believe in your heart.
It's a great place to start!
And you can someone's hero, too!

(The last word "Too" extends for a few seconds and Aquita bows as the other Starbolts take the stage and bow too.)

Ash: I think Brock has a song for Mateo and Aquita... (spotlight appears on Brock (guitar in hand) and the band)

(music begins)

Brock: If you wish, upon a star, your dreams will come true...
Why should you wait for them, when they'll always come back to you?
Dream big, trust in yourself, and you will go far...
And when the big day comes, the joy will consume you!

A journey has begun, to search and find the meaning of true love
All the stars, in the sky, guide me on my way!

This is my wish for you,
I can't just live for now...I'm living for my dream!
Show me now, that your love won't fade away! So don't rush it!
And so, until my dream day comes, I'll think of you
What lies ahead, and after a dream?

See the waves, and how they weave forever in time...
Have you lost your touch, are you hiding in fantasy?
Take your time, and think about whatever's in store...
And when I need your strength, carry me in your arms!

When you are here with me, I feel like I am stronger every day!
And our love, will increase, to maybe hundredfold!

This is my wish for you,
Consume me in your love! Please spread it round the world!
Show me that your strength is in your heart! And you're gentle,
So, your love is really true; come let me see!
I'll tell you just the way I feel! The flower of the sea blooms on!

[guitar solo]

Take good care of this...
After the dream is gone, I'll always look at you,
And remember the love that we shared, till forever!
Then, I whisper my promise, my word of hope!
The light will forever shine on!

This is my wish for you,
I can't just live for now...I'm living for my dream!
Show me now, that your love won't fade away! So don't rush it!
And so, until my dream day comes, I'll think of you
What lies ahead, and after a dream?
What lies ahead, and after a dream?

(Aquita and Mateo dance to the song and look deeply into each other's eyes. Jenna and M'anta do the same but the camera's on Mateo and Aquita. They applaud when the song ends. Pikachu, meanwhile, hops over to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Superhero Secret", part 3)

Aquita: So, the girl becomes the hero?

Jenna: All right! WOO!

Crystal: Eh..I give her three days before some freak pops her or something.

Marcus: Always looking to the bright side aren't ya?

Mateo: Least the supervillian wannabes are gone. Seriously, Ash..Why do those mroons give you trouble? If it was me, I'd have zapped them the first time thry tried to steal from me and toss their loser butts in the slammer.

Ash: So, what are your powers, exactly?

Jenna: I can shoot fire from my hands, control wind, water and heal people.

M'anta: I have bio electric powers and flight. And like all Aquans I'm telepathic and I can breathe underwater.

Aquita: I can use a sonic scream. Plus, I have my natural Aquan abilitiies. We're not from anywhere around here.

Marcus: I run at speeds up to the speed of sound, baby! Yeah!

Mateo: And he's got a mouth to match..(laughter as he shakes his head) Obviously, I can fly on these wings and I have a conduit on my ring finger to release my energy blasts.

Crystal: Ah can create all kinds of Crystalline weapons, cutie. (kiss)

Brock: ::guitar riff::

Ash: I gathered as much.

Misty: So who's the bad guys you fight?

Jenna: We fight Terra Nova. They are a group that hate (holds M'anta's hand) aliens like my boyfriend here.

M'anta: They killed my father. (eyes sparkle with electricity.) My friends and I'll take them down.

Mateo: They're also after anyone with metahuman DNA like myself and everyone who calls themselve a protecter of the innocent. Some gig huh? We try to fight and some people can't take it.

Marcus: Yeah but we'll stop them. We have a great mentor and everything.

Ash: Good luck!

Jenna: Thanks. You're lucky you don't have to deal with them.

Brock: How do you know when there's trouble? ::guitar riff::

M'anta: News reports or intel. The Agents of S.T.A.R. is a an organization funded by the US government. We respond to distress calls or any danger happening through reports.

Brock: I see...::guitar riff::

May: How many Starbolts are there?

Jenna: There's twelve of us. I know it seems like a big team, but, we split into rotating groups to handle things.

Mateo: Yeah, you managed to nab us six when we were at the base. The others were out on a mission

Ash: Aquita, I noticed M'anta and Jenna nand you and Mateo holding hands a lot. Isn't it odd dating an alien?

Aquita: Not really. You'd be amazed to learn that we're genetically compatible. In fact..I'm pregnant with Mateo's baby. (light applause)

Mateo: (blush) Yeah. We're having a kid and dealing with all kinds of stuff.

M'anta: It's interesting to say the least. Luckily, my dad was an open guy despite being king. I'm wearing his armor to honor him.

(A bagpipe drone is heard, getting everyone's attention. A spotlight appears on Brock, in full Highlander attire, playing "Amazing Grace" on a set of bagpipes. Wild applause ensues when the song concludes)

Mateo: Interesting song...

Ash: It's a scared song here on Earth. It's usually played when someone important dies.

Aquita: I sang the Independance Day song when my dad's funeral came.

Jenna: To think, this all started when we were sixteen! (laughter) One day we didn't have powers and the next we're fighting to protect Earth. I have this deep connection with M'anta and well, that's how we clicked.

(a cell phone beep startles everyone)

Jenna: (picks up) Kevin? Kevin, can you read us?

Kevin: Yeah. Barely. We're trying to lock onto you with my transdimensional gateway. We've been trying to while we watched you. Crystal behaving?

Crystal: Puh-leaze! (rolls eyes)

Kevin: Well, we figured out how to get you home. Try to remain calm for a couple minutes.

Jenna: Okay, cuz. (closes.) That was my cousin, Kevin. He's the tech whiz on the team and creates psionic arrows. (suddenly the Transporter's portal opens. Ash waves goodbye as the Starbolts depart.)

Ash: Well, THAT was certainly different...we're out of time already.

Misty: See ya! (waves)

Pikachu: Pikapi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #029: Totodile Trouble

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Eat your heart out, Totodile Hunter. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(The crowd cheers as Ash jogs onstage and waves)

Ash: Thank you! We've got a great show for you tonight as always...

(Before Ash can say any more, the familiar Tetris theme starts playing in the background. A troupe of Totodiles dances onstage, apparently enjoying the music)

Ash: What's with the dancing Totodiles? (ponders this as the dancing Totodiles swirl and jump around him. Before long Misty arrives onstage, perplexed by the ornate figures the Totodiles create as they dance)

Misty: Either your own Totodile decided to thank you for featuring by creating copies of himself using Double Team, or he invited a few friends over...

Ash: He invited a lot more than a few! Maybe... (crawls through the mess of dancing Totodiles and starts the projector. The Totodiles abandon their dance and crowd around the screen to watch the cartoon)

(CARTOON-"The Totodile Duel")

(Backstage, Misty sets up the drawing board while the Totodiles applaud the cartoon)

Misty: Come to think of it, these little guys aren't that bad to have around...(looks down to see all the Totodiles crowded around her) Uh...

Ash: I think they want to watch you draw, Misty.

Misty: I'll draw if you guys behave yourselves! (goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Random Totodile: Toto! (the pencil draws a crude looking Totodile next to Brock, who promptly chomps Brock's hand)

Brock: Augh! (runs around the paper, the crude Totodile drawing in hot pursuit!)

Misty(voiceover): I'll save you! (the pencil erases the crude drawing) Now, this is how you draw a Totodile. (the pencil draws a nicer looking Totodile next to Brock, followed by the scene of a pond. The Totodile promptly jumps in the water, leaving Brock to chase after it.

Brock: Here goes... (holds his breath and dives in)

(After some swimming, Brock catches up to the Totodile, scoops it in his arms--and then he feels tightness in his throat.)

Brock(thinking): I'd better come up for air...(He swims to the surface and sets the Totodile on the bank. No sooner has he done this, does he discover there's a lot more Totodiles on the bank. They all dive in the water, making the splashes spell "The End")

(The Totodiles giggle as Misty draws the last scene)

Misty: You like that, huh? (the Totodiles nod)

Ash: If we hurry, we can hear Brock sing a song! (The Totodiles lead the charge onstage, where Brock is tuning his guitar)

Misty: Make it good...

Brock: I have just the song...

(guitar intro)

Brock: Close your eyes tonight and wish upon a shooting star!
See it fly into a million points of light!
Every promise, hope and prayer becomes a jeweled star!
And I believe deep inside my heart that fate, will lead us on...

I've broken free from a cold wave of doubt...
Yet, I don't know why I'm crying...
And so I turn, looking away from everyone...
Silently, I vanish in the night air...
I'm searching endlessly for something that I lost!
My heart is aching painfully!
And as the falling rain consumes me, soothes me...
I will never stop singing this song for you!

If the morning sun should come again and shine once more,
Oh, how I'd want that sunny day eternally!
If we meet again, my joy, my love, my everything,
Would become like jewels, and everyone would know...of a miracle...

My heart is open, let my dreams come forth...
Please, don't let anything surprise you...
I can't stop now, for I have come so far today,
And I must...remain pure, strong, and faithful...
The item that I lost will remain in my sight!
And may the world forever turn...
And as the falling rain consumes me, soothes me...
I will never stop singing this song for you!

Close your eyes tonight and wish upon a shooting star!
See it fly into a million points of light!
Every promise, hope and prayer becomes a jeweled star!
And I believe deep inside my heart that fate, will lead us on...

[guitar solo]

The item that I lost will remain in my sight!
And may the world forever turn...
And as the falling rain consumes me, soothes me...
I will never stop singing this song for you!

If the morning sun should come again and shine once more,
Oh, how I'd want that sunny day eternally!
If we meet again, my joy, my love, my everything,
Would become like jewels, and everyone would know...of a miracle...

[guitar solo]

(The Totodiles lead the cheers as Brock breaks off for a long solo...Ash, meanwhile, slips to the projector and starts it. As if on cue, the Totodiles are magically before the screen again)

(CARTOON-"Love, Totodile Style")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and one Totodile onstage)

Ash: Well...we're about out of time for tonight...

(some "Aww"s are heard from the audience. The Totodiles sniffle a little to hold back tears)

Ash: Hey, don't cry! We'll do this again tomorrow, same Pokemon time, same Pokemon Channel! (The Totodiles cheer) Until then, see ya next time! (waves)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in a blue Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses)

Brock: We've got laughs, we've got songs...you know, the works! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves at the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we're going to kick off a series of shows paying tribute to the Brains of the Battle Frontier--so join me in welcoming Noland to the stage. (leads the applause as Noland walks onstage and shakes hands with Ash)

Noland: A pleasure to be with you, Ash. (suddenly remembers someone and calls offstage) Here, Icy...

(Some oohs and ahs are heard as an Articuno appears onstage)

Noland: You remember Icy, don't you?

Ash: After Charizard battled her, how could I not forget? (Icy ruffles her feathers a little, prompting some laughter)

(Noland is about to say more when the girls come onstage, awed by the Articuno nearby)

Misty: I didn't know Articunos could be tamed!

May: Hi, Icy...remember me? (Icy lowers her hed, letting May pet her)

Noland: I'd say she does, May...

May: Misty, this is Noland, chief of the Battle Factory.

Misty: Pleased to meet you. (shakes Noland's hand)

Noland: The pleasure's all mine. (Icy presents a reel to Noland) Thank you, Icy...want to watch this and relive our battle, Ash?

Ash: Sure! (settles in as Noland threads the reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"A Frozen Flame")

(May smiles as Noland ejects the reel)

Misty: So that's how you met Icy...

Noland: We've been together for a long time...I don't know what I'd do without her...

Brock: Hey, May...tell us more of your golfing adventure.

May: Okay...the first hole of Petalburg Highlands was a real headache...

("On Our Way" interlude as the title card appears: "'Par for the Course' starring May" May's face appears in the round part of the a in her name)

(Flashback-May is preparing to tee off on the first hole)

May(voiceover): After explaining to Eevee that the ball was not for fetching, I finally teed off without a hitch. (May tees off...the ball lands on the fairway)

(Beautifly fies over and perches on the ball as May arrives for her second shot)

May: The trouble started on my second shot... (May is about to take her second shot when some singing breaks her concentration. She looks up to see a Taillow perched in a tree, singing its heart out. Combusken trots up to the tree and says "Sh!", quieting the Taillow)

Ash(voiceover): So a Taillow distracted you?

May(voiceover): That's not even the half of it...(May takes her second shot...) Munchlax just had to have the ball for lunch as well! (Munchlax jumps up and swallows the ball mid flight. May storms up to him, and administers the Heimlich manuver, sending the slobber covered ball into the grass)

Brock(voiceover): Ick...

May: So after getting a new ball, the rest of the hole went with no problems. (May putts the ball in the hole, prompting applause from her team. We see May's scorecard as the flashback fades: -1.)

(We rejoin Ash and the gang onstage)

Noland: If the first hole was that interesting, I'm sure the other seventeen are, too!

May: They are, trust me... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Charred For Life", part 1)

(We rejoin Ash, Noland, and Icy onstage)

Ash: Now...this is the musical part of the show...Brock has a great voice, so you're in for a treat! (steps aside as Noland and icy settle in)

(a disco beat begins as the lights come up on Brock(who is strumming away on his trusty guitar) and the band. Some oohs and ahhs are heard as a disco ball descends into the room as well)

Brock: Down around the corner
A half a mile from here
You can see them long trains run
And you watch them disappear
Without love,
Where would you be now?
Without love?

You know I saw Miss Lucy
Down along the tracks...
She lost her home and her family,
And she won't be comin' back
Without love....
Where would you be right now,
Without love?

Well, the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central freight
Gotta keep on pushin' mama,
'cause you know they're runnin' late
Without love!
Where would you be now... now, now, now,
Without love?

(the audience goes wild as Ash takes a harmonica from his pocket and joins in with Brock and the band)

Brock: Well, the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central freight
Gotta keep on pushin' mama,
'cause you know they're runnin' late
Without love!
Where would you be now,
Without love?

Well, the pistons keep on churnin'
And the wheels go 'round and 'round,
And the steel rails are cold and hard
For the miles that they go down!
Without love...
Where would you be right now,
Without love?
Where would you be now?

(dance break-Misty dances over to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Charred for Life", part 2)

(We rejoin the cast, Noland, and Icy onstage. Icy is still dancing to the beat of the song from earller)

Ash: Well, we're about out of time for tonight...thank you for coming, Noland...

Noland: My pleasure...I didn't know you could play the harmonica so well...

Ash: I've had practice...(takes out his harmonica again) See ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. A disco version of "On Our Way" plays in the background (complete with a harmonica) as the credits roll)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in a blue Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses)

Brock: Everybody was kung fu fighting... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! We wanna continue our look at the Frontier Brains tonight...so we'll set our sights to the Battle Arena, where their leader may be beautiful, but she does pack a punch...literally! (mild laughter) That said, let's welcome Greta to the stage.

(an Oriental sounding tune drifts into the audience as Greta appears onstage in a swirl of cherry blossom petals. Applause ensues as Greta and Ash bow to each other)

Greta: It is an honor to be with you this evening, Ash.

Ash: The pleasure's all ours. (He's about to say more when he sees Misty examining a cherry blossom petal) What's the matter? It's only a flower petal.

Misty: Judging from all these lying around, I thought you were starting to show a martial arts movie, or something.

Greta: I don't know about a martial arts movie, but we can watch how our duel in the Arena played out. (forms a reel of film, threads it in the projector, and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Big Trouble in Little Kanto", part 1)

(Backstage, Greta observes Misty at the drawing board, where she's drawing characters reminescent of Japanese characters. As each character is drawn, it comes to life as the object it represents.)

Greta: You must be a natural at Mew calligraphy! All of these look nice. (gestures to the various characters on the paper)

Misty: Thanks...I didn't know it was this easy either. (draws another character, which comes to life as a Pikachu for a few seconds, then fades away)

Greta: It isn't as easy as it looks, Nincada...it takes years of devotion to do it well.

Misty: Not to mention a lot of fun if you draw them with magic pencils! (at this, Pikachu snatches one of the pencils and draws a ninja's headband on himself. He strikes a few fighting poses as Misty continues to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): I wonder how Brock would fare training under you? (the pencil draws a ninja outfit on Brock, then draws in a background of the Battle Arena.)

Greta(voiceover): Maybe your mystical pencil will tell us. (the pencil draws Greta facing Brock. They bow to each other.)

Misty(voiceover): Okay...first we'll start with the bamboo staff. (the pencil draws a bamboo staff in Brock's hand. He immediately starts to twirl it in various postions...but then he gets a little carried away with the twirling.)

Greta(voiceover): Now listen to me, Nincada...that's not a baton, that is a staff for battle...

Misty: I think you're a little late... (Brock flies overhead, using the spinning staff as a propellor)

(Later, Brock stands before a block of wood.)

Greta(voiceover): Now, try to break the wood with your feet.

(Brock runs up to the block of wood and tries to kick it, but the impact of the kick sends him flying...into a gong overlooking the Arena. Brock rubs his head in pain as "The End" appears in Mew characters.)

(Greta giggles as Misty draws the last scene)

Greta: I don't know if any of my trainees have done that before...usually they break the wood after two or three tries...

Misty: Forget wood breaking, your duel with Ash was more exciting! (threads reel into projector)

Greta: Oh yes, I nearly forgot about that...(settles in as Misty starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Big Trouble in Little Kanto", part 2)

(Ash arrives backstage just as the cartoon concludes)

Ash: If you'll come with me, we can relax to some guitar music...

Greta: This should be relaxing... (closes her eyes as she listens to Brock tune up)

Ash: Whenever you're ready, Maestro.

Brock: Oh.... (music begins) Oh...oh....oh....

Greta(over the music): Oh, he's singing my song!

Brock: Everybody was kung-fu fighting....
Those steps were fast as lightning!
In fact, it was a little bit frightening,
But they fought with expert timing!

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown,
They were chopping them up, and they were chopping them down!
It's an ancient Chinese art, and everybody knew their part,
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip!

Everybody was kung-fu fighting...
Those steps were fast as lightning!
In fact, it was a little bit frightening,
But they fought with expert timing!

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said, "Here comes the big boss,

Ash, Greta, et.al: Huh! Hah! (they strike fighting poses)

Brock: Lets get it on!"
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand.
The sudden motion made me skip, now we're into a brand new trip!

Everybody was kung-fu fighting...

Ash, Greta, et.al: Huh! (they strike fighting poses)

Brock: Those steps were fast as lightning!

Ash, et al: Hah! (they strike another fighting pose)

Brock: In fact it was a little bit frightening,

Ash, et al: Hah!

Brock: But they did it with expert timing!

Ash, et al: Huh!

Brock: Oh...

Ash, et al: Hah!

Brock: Oh...

Ash, et al: Huh!

Brock: Oh...

Ash, et al: Hah!

(The others continue to strike fighting poses as Brock continues singing the Oh.... Pikachu runs over to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Big Trouble in Little Kanto", part 3)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Greta onstage)

Ash: Well, we're almost out of time....

Greta: You know, you should have used Pikachu during our duel...he looks like a natural! (gestures to Pikachu striking fighting poses)

Ash: See you next time! (he and Greta wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pi-ka! (he leaps at the camera, but the screen goes black at the point of impact. An Oriental sounding version of "On Our Way" plays as the credits roll)

Brock: Is it just me, or does everyone have this many fangirls? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's guest--

(Ash is cut off by a few random fangirl screams from the audience)

Ash: Anyway, tonight's guest-- (more random fangirl screams are heard in the audience)

(Misty comes onstage, piqued by all the screaming)

Misty: Have you introduced Tucker yet? (at the mention of the name "Tucker", every girl in the audience starts screaming)

Ash(over the noise): I'm trying!

Pikachu: Pika! (the screaming stops) Pika, Pikapi...

Ash: Please join me in welcoming Tucker to the stage! (leads the applause as Tucker appears in in a spotlight above Ash, causing all the girls to scream again.)

Tucker: Thank you, thank you...and thank you, Sir Ash, for allowing me to be with you tonight!

Ash: The pleasure's all mine.

Tucker: I do hope my little fanclub isn't too much of a bother...

Ash: They were already excited even before I came onstage! (mild laughter)

Misty: Can we get them calmed down enough to start the cartoon? (threads a reel in the projector. as if on cue, all the girls stop screaming) There...that's better. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Raging Fire, Rolling Sea!", part 1)

(When we return to the theater, Misty is watching the reel rewind as May comes onstage)

May: What in Ho'oh's name was all that screaming?

Misty: With Tucker being tonight's guest, apparently his entire fanclub came out to see the show...

Ash: Speaking of which, we now have our own fanclub too! (applause) Check with the theater staff as you leave tonight and they'll tell you all about it! (more applause) Now, shall we hear more of your golfing adventure, May?

Tucker: Golf? Boring! (laughter)

May: Not when my team's around, it's not! I got lucky on the second hole...

("On Our Way" interlude as the title card appears: "'Par for the Course' starring May" May's face appears in the round part of the a in her name)

(Flashback-May is at the second hole, preparing to tee off. Judging from how close the green is in relation to her, this is a par 3 hole)

May(voiceover): The tee-off wasn't so hot...Munchlax tried to eat the ball again. (Munchlax walks up to the tee and pops the ball in his mouth. He only gets as far as three steps before May whacks him on the back, sending the slobbery ball into the grass)

(A few minutes later, May tees off successfully....and the ball heads for the green)

Ash(voiceover): So you teed off, and the ball landed on the green...

May(voiceover): It kept rolling towards the hole...but then it started slowing down! (May watches in the distance as her ball starts to slow.) Beautifly thought that it was about to stop, so she flew down to spot it for me...

Tucker(voiceover): That was nice...that way you don't have to run all over the course looking for it.

(Beautifly flits off of May's head and flies down to the green...)

May(voiceover): Here's the cool part: As Beautifly few down, the wind from her wings put the ball in the hole! (Beautifly watches, surprised, as the ball goes in the hole! May jumps for joy as we see her scorecard: -3. Underneath that, we see the words "Wow! Hole in one!" as the flashback ends)

Tucker: A hole in one? Impressive!

May: Thanks...I was surprised as well!

Ash: Now, some more of the cartoon...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Raging Fire, Rolling Sea!" part 2)

(We rejoin Ash and Tucker in the theater, where Brock is tuning his guitar as the band waits patiently)

Ash: This is usually the musical part of the show--sometimes, Brock sings with the house band, and sometimes he sings on is own...but either way, you're in for a treat! (applause)

Tucker: Is that so?

(music begins and the lights come up on Brock and the band)

Brock: I believe in miracles, baby.
I believe in you.
I believe in miracles, baby.
I believe in you.

They say the day is ending.
Let's watch the sun go down
And plan a holiday for two.
For all eternity I'm gonna count till you can see
the world I created just for you.

Oh, I saw you standing on the street.
I wanted to meet you and stop for a while.
You gave me a smile when you said hello.

Now everything's so good inside.
Never realized that I didn't hide the feeling that came when you felt the same.

I believe in miracles, I believe in miracles,
I believe in miracles, don't you?

Lalalalalalalalalala... Lalalalalalalalalala...
Lalalalalalalalalala...

I believe in miracles, I believe in miracles, I believe in miracles, don't you?

In miracles, in miracles, in miracles! (applause as Brock takes a bow)

Tucker: Bravo! Encore!

Misty: And now, the conclusion of our cartoon...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Raging Fire, Rolling Sea!", part 3)

(We rejoin Ash, Pikachu, and Tucker onstage)

Ash: Well, it's about that time...

Tucker: But don't despair, you can see the show tomorrow night at the same time! (wild applause and screaming)

Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in a blue Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses)

Brock: I suppose you wondering why I asked you here tonight? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we...um...uh...

(We look backstage--Psyduck is holding Ash's cue cards--but the one he's holding is upside down.)

Misty: Psyduck! If you're going to hold Ash's cue cards, hold them right side up so Ash can read them!

Psyduck: Psy! (turns the card around)

(Back onstage, Ash tries his intro again)

Ash: Rule one of showbiz, kids: Never hire a Psyduck to hold your cue cards! (laughter) As I was saying, Tonight we continue our look at the Frontier Brains, by featuring one of the more mysterious ones...please welcome the lovely Lucy to the stage. (leads the applause as Lucy appears in a puff of red smoke)

Lucy: Thank you so much, and many thanks to you, Ash, for allowing me to join you this evening.

Ash: My pleasure. (invites Lucy to sit down in a chair facing the screen, where Misty is prepping the projector) Just keep it quiet...Brock doesn't need to know you're here.

Lucy: While he may be charming, he needs to learn to tame his romantic urges.

Ash: He'll be singing a little bit later on in the show...

(a slow guitar chord catches Ash's and Lucy's attention-Brock is standing stage right, guitar in hand)

Brock: You belong to my heart...now and forever...

Misty: And you belong backstage! (draws the cane, which yanks Brock backstage.)

Ash: Thanks, Misty...

Lucy: Now, since we won't have any more interruptions...shall we relive our battle?

Ash: Of course! Roll'em, Misty! (Misty starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Sweet Lucy from Pike", part 1)

(Backstage, Lucy observes Misty setting up)

Lucy: Wow...this is a nice place you've chosen to host your show....

Misty: We found it in disrepair three years ago, after some fixing up, we hosted our first show...and the rest is history!

Lucy: I see...where did that cane come from earlier? The one that yanked Brock offstage when he tried to interrupt our talk?

Misty: I drew it...these are mystical pencils that make whatever they draw come alive...custom ordered just for me!

Lucy: Interesting... (watches Misty go to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): Okay...what shall we make Brock do tonight?

Lucy(voiceover): I can only imagine what his dressing room looks like... (The pencil draws the interior of Brock's dressing room--cluttered with old scripts, instruments, food wrappers, and other odds and ends)

Brock: Why didn't you tell me today was room cleaning day? (starts cleaning his room)

(After a while, the room looks cleaner....)

Lucy: You could mop the floor. (the pencil draws a bucket and mop. Brock goes to work mopping the floor)

(After mopping, Brock takes off his shoes and starts sliding on the floor in his socks...)

Lucy: Careful, Mr. Champion Skater... (Brock crashes into the wall. The trail he skated spells "The End")

(Lucy giggles as Misty draws the last scene)

Misty: If you like it that much... (signs her name on the last panel and tears off the paper) you can have it as a souvenir.

Lucy: Thank you, Misty. (takes the paper and joins Ash before the screen)

(CARTOON-"Sweet Lucy From Pike", part 2)

(Lucy turns around in her chair to see Brock (with his guitar) and the band)

Ash: Take it, guys...

(music begins)

Brock: The magic feeling...
It's grown so strong...
Always leads me...
To a place where I belong...
Won't go away...
Never let me down...
I've got the greatest friends...
That ever could be found...

Across every river!
Behind every tree!
On top of every mountain!
They're a part of you and me!

(One world)
One world... Now and forever!
(Best friends)
Best friends... Loyal and true!

There's nothing we can't do!
(One hand)

(We live)

Sharing the same bright sun!

You & me & Pokemon!

They rush like water...
They soar like the wind...
They're always with me...
Every day that I begin...
They burn like fire...
They chill like ice...
They take on any challenge...
Make any sacrifice...

Across every river!

On top of every mountain!
They're a part of you and me!

Lucy: Bravo!

Brock: Thank you...

Ash: And now, the exciting conclusion... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Sweet Lucy From Pike", part 3)

(We join Ash, Lucy, and Pikachu on stage)

Lucy: It was wonderful being with you, Ash...

Ash: I had fun too...but we'll see you next time! (he and Lucy wave goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #034: Tile-Up!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: There can only be one explaination for white tile in a dressing room--we must have black, red, blue, green, and yellow tiles too! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show is a little different...we're going to be looking at a game that's taking the world by storm! (light applause) All you need to play are some magnetized tiles... (the lights come up on some round tiles that look like Charmander, Squirtle, and Pikachu heads. Ash grabs the tiles and puts them in a box of other similar tiles) a stylus magnet... (Ash pauses to grab what looks like a giant version of a Nintendo DS stylus) ...a board to hold the tiles... (the lights appear on a game board that looks like the two screens of a DS) and someplace to hold the tiles you've removed from the board. (the lights appear on a box by the board) What's the name of this game?

(Nicadas chirp as the audience awaits the answer)

Ash: The answer? Trozei! (applause as a neon sign that spells "Trozei" drops down from above) And who better to tell us more about Trozei than a Trozei champion? So join me in welcoming the lovely Janpai to the stage. (applause as an auburn haired girl wearing a T-shirt with Trozei tiles on it and jeans comes onstage, shakes hands with Ash, and makes herself in a chair facing the board.)

Brock(offstage): My LOVELY one!

Janpai: Good thing I brought my stylus magnet! (reaches for her own stylus magnet from her pocket and picks up Brock by the ring he supposedly wanted to offer her) I'll move Mr. Loverboy here off the board! (proceeds to drop Brock in a box backstage. Misty watches from stage right, amazed.)

Misty: I didn't have to draw the cane this time!

Brock(offstage): You stay out of this. (laughter)

Janpai: You'd be surprised at what Trozei magnets can pick up! There have been reports that they can pick up ships!

Misty: Good thing all they ever have to pick up is these little magnets. (admires a Squirtle tile)

Ash: While we get ready for your interview, Janpai; let's watch this. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Ultimate Test", part 1)

(We return to the theater, where Ash and Janpai face each other. The Trozei board unveiled earlier is now dimmed.)

Ash: So, Janpai; let's begin by telling the audience a little about Trozei.

Janpai: Trozei is a game of skill that at first seems complicated, but it's actually quite simple. It's also a very old game--you can see ancient Trozei tiles and boards in the Pewter Museum. Back then, the tiles were made out of painted chunks of magnetite. Now, they're pieces of plastic with magnets inside.

Pikachu: Pika... (picks up a Pikachu tile and looks at it)

Ash: So, how did you get started playing Trozei?

Janpai: My dad had a set of Trozei boards at home, and he showed me how to play. After beating him too many times...(Janpai is interrupted by light laughter) people started asking me to teach them, then the local Trozei Federation heard, and the rest is history! (applause)

Ash: Now, how do you play Trozei, anyway?

Janpai: Well...words alone can't describe it, so if I had an artist in the house...

Misty: That would be me! (leads Janpai and Ash backstage)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, Janpai, start describing and I'll draw.

Janpai(voiceover): Well, first our player needs a magnet and a board! (the pencil draws a stylus magnet in Brock's hand, followed by a Trozei board.)

(The camera focuses on the board, into which various Pokemon tiles fall into)

Male announcer: Remove 50 tiles...and begin! (the number appears at the top left of the screen and a whistle is heard)

Janpai(voiceover): The object of the game is to remove the specified number of tiles before time runs out. (a time limit of five minutes appears under the number of tiles to remove) You can only remove tiles in groups of four of the same Pokemon; and they have to be horizontal, vertical, or diagonal. (circles appear around legal groups on Brock's board.) You can also move the tiles around to make legal groups.

(Brock begins making and removing the legal groups by tracing around them with his magnet, which makes them disappear. Before long, his counter reads 25, until he notices an exclamation point icon sandwiched within several tiles)

Brock: What's that?

Janpai(voiceover): That's a Chance icon...remove it, and you can remove other groupings of four, like T's and L's, or smaller groups for a short time.

(Brock creates a grouping of Geodudes and traces over it, causing the icon to activate as the tiles disappear. He begins removing tiles in other groupings, until a Ditto tile is dropped into the board. He uses it in a grouping of three, and all four disappear)

Janpai(voiceover): Ditto tiles are special. (a second Ditto tile is dropped in the board) They act as wild cards, so you can use it as a fourth tile if the need arises. (Brock creates another grouping with the second Ditto tile) Remove consecutive groups of four or very large groups to make one appear. (a third Ditto tile is dropped in the board as Brock removes three groups in a row.) But be aware that the game ends if all 55 spots on the board are filled up before you remove your quota, or you run out of time. (the Mario 'hurry up!' fanfare is heard as the timer dips below a minute)

Misty(voiceover): Hurry, Brock!

(Brock removes his last three groups with 54 seconds to spare! He smiles as 'Winner' appears on his board, which then turns into 'The End')

(Janpai watches as Misty draws the last scene)

Janpai: Now that we know how to play Trozei...why not have a round ourselves?

Ash: Sure! (a second board is unveiled, which fills up with tiles)

(Brock, now in referee's attire, stands between the two boards. Ash is at the left board, Janpai on the right)

Brock: Ruby board ready? (Ash nods) Sapphire board ready? (Janpai nods) Remove 50 tiles in three minutes! (the time and quota appears on both boards) And three, two, one... (blows his whistle)

(The audience cheers as both magnets start creating and removing groups. Janpai gets an early lead while Ash struggles to find some legal groups. Misty leads the cheering on the left side, and May leads the cheers on the right side.)

(After a few minutes, Ash realizes he has some unused Ditto tiles on his board, and starts to get ahead of Janpai! He smiles as he traces his last group...)

Brock: (blows whistle) Game Set! This match's winner is...ASH! (cheers erupt from the audience as Ash bows to the crowd and shakes hands with Janpai)
Janpai: Wow! You learn quickly! Great match, too; by the way. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Ultimate Test", part 2)

(We join Ash, Janpai, and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Well, we're out of time for tonight...

Janpai: Up for a rematch?

Ash: Let me say goodbye first, then we'll rematch...I hope you had fun tonight, and we'll see you next time! (waves, then returns to his board)

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves, then blows a whistle to begin the rematch between Ash and Janpai as the curtain closes. On Our Way reprise plays as the credits roll. After all the credits run, the curtain reopens to reveal the rematch in progress)

Ash: Hey, do you mind? (the curtain quickly closes)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: And you think my love of Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy is bad.... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash jogs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight--

Offstage voice: May! My lovely May!

(Ash is confused by the offstage voice, but he shrugs it off)

Ash: Anyway, tonight's show--

Offstage voice: Oh, May? (May peeks onstage, interested in the voice calling her)

May: Who IS that, anyway? Brock's not pulling a prank on me, is he?

(At this, Brock walks onstage, sets his guitar aside, and preps the projector)

Brock: Why do you guys suspect it's me? I was backstage in my dressing room when Ash came onstage!

Offstage voice: Come here, sweetheart!

(Suddenly, a Pokefan races onstage and practically glomps May)

May: I am--oof!--not your--ow!--sweetheart!

Pokefan: Yes you are! I love you and watch the show every day to see you!

(Misty glances onstage, piqued by the commotion)

Misty: What in the?

Ash: Looks like a crazed fan got past security and is trying to glomp May!

Misty: I'll handle this...(draws the cane, which yanks the Pokefan offstage, to thunderous applause)

Ash: Thanks, Misty...

Brock: And now, let's get a cartoon underway now that we have no further interruptions.... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Heartbreak of Brock", part 1)

(Back onstage, May checks for any sign of the Pokefan.)

May: I think he's gone...

Offstage voice: Come to papa!

(May gasps, and steps aside as the Pokefan races by, only to crash into something backstage)

May(whispering): Missed me! (giggles)

Misty: Just let me know if you want me to yank him offstage again....but for now, let's hear more of your adventure on the links...

May: Well, the third hole introduced a new hazard for my team to play in...

("On Our Way" interlude as the title card appears: "'Par for the Course' starring May" May's face appears in the round part of the a in her name)

(Flashback-May tees off on the third hole)

May(voiceover): My first two shots were fine...(May takes her second shot) But my third shot landed in the bunker! (May winces as her ball goes into a bunker with a 'puff')

Ash(voiceover): Why is that bad?

May(voiceover): Munchlax decided the bunker was a sandbox! (May sighs, frustrated, as Munchlax builds a sandcastle in the bunker. She kicks it over and shoos Munchlax away)

Brock(voiceover): Sand trap, sand box, it probably made no difference to him.

May(voiceover): But that was only the beginning... (May puts the ball in the hole. We see that her score didn't change as "The End" appears on May's scorecard)

(May gasps as she hears scuffling backstage)

May: Brock! Start the cartoon, quickly! (Brock obliges just as the Pokefan races by)

(CARTOON-"The Heartbreak of Brock", part 2)

(We join Ash, Brock, and the band onstage. Ash watches backstage as Brock tunes his guitar)

Ash: Hopefully we can get the musical number done without the Pokefan hearing...

Misty: Take it, guys.

(music begins)

Brock: Dreaming of the stars on high,
That speak to me in secret sighs....
Drifting on a breeze
Only I can feel and hear....

Could it be the sacred wind?
That's pulling me to now begin?
To walk into the dark,
Carrying the light of tomorrow?

Need to walk the wings of high!
Beyond the earth, beyond the sky!
C'mon, don't hesitate!
Don't look back, we've got to go now!

Don't fear,
You'll be safe with the one
Morning star watching over all!

Deep inside so silently,
My heart must beat
Deep inside of me,
Memories flickering and shimmering on
Endlessly...

Keeping close to the path,
Morning star watching over all!

Moving over endless mountains up so high,
Walking to the light,
Your heart will
See the path and you will find your way!
Just wait and see!

Moving under endless skies oh so high!
Tomorrow we'll follow, when in doubt,
Your promises today,
Just wait and see!

(applause as Brock and the band bow...until Brock hears footsteps coming onstage)

Brock: Uh oh...

Misty: I'll handle this! (takes her pencil and erases the Pokefan, to a standing ovation)

May: Thanks Misty...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Heartbreak of Brock"-part 3)

(We join Ash, May, and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Well, we're out of time for tonight....

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Hey, I wanted a Triforce too! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We look in on an orchestra tuning up--from our perspective, we can see the conductor's podium, empty. As the instruments finish tuning, we see Ash step up to the podium, to thunderous applause. Ash bows to the audience, then raises his baton. The orchestra begins to play a majestic version of the Zelda theme song (http://s62.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3SKBWCAPZWOHJ14WX3L367IL4N). We take a look around the theater: some in the audience are nodding their heads to the beat, others just sit quietly. We observe the orchestra playing, and Ash conducting, culminating in one last hit of music. The audience applauds as Ash steps down from the podium and acknowledges the orchestra, who bow and troop offstage.)

Misty: Bravo!

May: Encore!

Brock: You make a great conductor, Ash! In fact, I know the perfect pair who would enjoy that number... (heads backstage)

Ash: Thanks, guys...I wanted to do something special tonight--(Ash is cut off by the voice of the Transporter) Huh?

Transporter: Coordinates entered: 0787. Destination: Hyrule.

(a column of light appears on the stage, unlike what the Transporter has done before)

Ash: What the?

(the group watches, amazed, as Link and Zelda descend down to the stage, to some applause. Navi flies out from under Link's cap and surveys the audience.)

Navi: We're inside a theater, and a show was obviously in progress when we arrived; but it looks like we got here in between an act.

Zelda: It's a nice theater...reminds me of the royal theater back home.

Pikachu: Pika! (swats at Navi, knocking her backwards)

Navi: Hey! (smooths her wrinkled dress out and tosses her hair back)

Ash: Pikachu! That wasn't very nice! Now tell Navi you're sorry!

Pikachu: Pika, Pi...

Navi: Apology accepted.

Link: Who knew that Bombchus like this little guy (gestures to Pikachu) liked fairies as toys?

Zelda: Link's right...I think the cute mouse wanted to play with Navi.

Navi: Well, if you want to play, play nice! (laughter as Pikachu romps offstage, beckoning for Navi to follow.)

Ash: Anyway...perhaps you guys would like to see some of the stories of your exploits? (starts the projector as Link and Zelda get comfortable)

(CARTOON-"Sing For the Unicorn!")

(some applause as the projector rewinds. Link is a little embarrassed as to what he just watched)

Link: I can't believe I used to be that obsessed with kissing you, Zelda....

Zelda: It's all right, Link...we all have our childish phases sometimes... (she is about to say more when Navi and Pikachu return to the stage)

Navi: I will admit, little guy, you're good at hide and go seek!

Pikachu: Pika.

Zelda: Say...should we teach our new friends one of the court dances? The Hylian Fling, maybe?

Link: Good idea. (he and Zelda join hands for a moment, then a march with an Irish feel begins to play. The pair skip in a circle to the beat before Link spins Zelda, then the pair dance in a circle going the other direction. Ash and the others watch the dance, bemused.)

Ash: That looks like fun! (grabs Misty and starts copying the dance)

Misty: Ash, wait! (stumbles along to Ash's dancing for a few moments, then gets the hang of the skipping)

Brock: Dance with me! (grabs May and begins doing the dance with her.)

(Pikachu grabs Mudkip and dances with her as Navi and the audience clap along. When the song concludes, everyone collapses to the floor, exhausted. Pikachu and Mudkip, meanwhile, are still going strong)

Link: The only problem with the Hylian Fling is, it's very exhausting. (laughter as Ash starts the projector)

Ash: Let's watch this while we rest. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Fairies in the Spring")

(Back onstage, Ash tunes a fiddle while Link and Zelda watch.)

Ash: Link, Zelda, I thank you for teaching us that dance earlier... (light laughter as Pikachu and Mudkip dance by)

Zelda: Our pleasure.

Ash: Now it's our turn to perform something for you in return...take it, Brock.

[guitar intro]

Brock: Epona, Epona, come out here by me...
As long as I see you out here, I never shed lonely tears.

Tell me now, Epona, since you're here with me...
We shall rest here together, and our dreams will grow!

However, as wind blows and rain becomes like snow...
As the fire of dawn comes again...
The moon, it is setting now, rising is the sun...
Along with its bright light, you return...

Epona, Epona, come out here by me...
As long as I see you out here, I will never shed a tear.

Tell me now, Epona, since you're here with me...
Listen, please, for I will sing, the song of this time!

[guitar and fiddle solo]

Brock: Hmm...Hmm...

However, as wind blows and rain becomes like snow,
As the time, keeps on, passing by...
Even when I pass on, my voice will sing for you,
The song of this time!

Hmm...Hmm...
As long as I see you out here, I will never shed a tear!

Hmm...Hmm...
I will always remember, the song of this time!
The song of, this time!

Ash: You'll miss Navi? (light laughter)

Brock: You know, Navi wasn't half as annoying as I thought! (laughter)

Ash: Well, we're out of time for tonight, so see ya next time! (waves)

Pikachu: Pika! (continues doing the Hylian Fling as the credits roll)

This one was nice. The music was great too. I think I heard it before. Isn't it on some game. So are Zelda and Link a pair?

ANP #37: Legend of Thunder


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Go, Beast racer! Go, Beast racer! Go Beast racer, go! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we take a look at one of Johto's Legendary Beasts--the thunder Beast, Raikou. (A picture of a Raikou unfurls next to Ash, causing some curious murmurs in the audience)

(Before Ash can say any more, a loud kazoo buzz comes out of nowhere.)

Ash: Oh brother....(hides his face as Brock cavorts about the stage, buzzing on a kazoo)

Misty(offstage): You're not on yet, so save your number for later! (the cane appears and yanks Brock offstage)

Ash: Thanks, Misty...as I was saying, there have been very few sightings of Raikou in the wild, so accounts of legends that give him a rider are still being hotly debated. Fortunately for us...(produces a reel out of nowhere) We have some footage of Raikou, direct from a group of trainers who saw him--and ultimately saved him! (applause as Ash threads the reel in the projector and starts it.

(CARTOON-"Raikou! Legend of Thunder", part 1)

(Backstage, Misty is leafing through some old comics...May watches nearby, Beautifly perched on her head)

Misty: As thanks to those trainers that gave us tonight's cartoon, I'm going to reproduce the Raikou comic I drew last season.

May: That's a great idea! I'm sure they'll like it.

Beautifly: Beauuuu-tifly!

May: Beautifly says be sure and autograph it!

Misty: I will, all right? (goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): How'd you like to have an encounter with a Legendary?

(the pencil draws a safari background, followed by a Raikou drinking from a water hole)

Brock: Nice Beastie... (The Raikou growls as Brock approaches) All right, I'm leaving! (retreats behind a tree as the Raikou resumes his drink)

Misty(voiceover): I challenge you to ride the Raikou! (the pencil draws a saddle blanket in Brock's hands)

Brock: Ride a Legendary Beast like a Ponyta? Impossible!

Misty(voiceover): Not in my world it isn't! Now, go ride him!

(Brock swallows hard as he slips the blanket on Raikou. Raikou purrs a bit--until he feels the weight of a human on his back. He roars and rears up, sending Brock flying into the water with a splash)

Misty(voiceover): Towel? (the pencil draws a towel on the ground)

Brock: Yes, thanks. (he takes the towel and dries off)

(We cut to the site of a tree-Brock lays a piece of meat under the tree, then climbs up to see if Raikou approaches)

(After a few minutes, Raikou does approach and nibbles on the meat--until he feels the weight of a human on him. Brock is sent flying into the water hole again, leaving him even more soaked)

Brock: Can I have another towel? (the pencil obliges) Thanks.

(Meanwhile Brock is back in the tree, waiting for Raikou to pass by. As Raikou runs under a low branch, Brock eases himself aboard the Beast. He's about to settle in and enjoy the ride--until he realizes he's headed for the water again!)

Misty: Need another towel?

Brock: Come to think of it, the water feels good...but at least I rode Raikou!

(he dives underwater, the resulting ripples spell "The End")

(May watches as Misty autographs the last scene)

Misty: There...all done! (tears off the autographed comic from her pad)

May: I'll take this to Ash. (takes the paper onstage, where Ash is busy prepping the projector) Here...

Ash: What is it?

May: A thank you for those trainers that brought tonight's footage. (Ash takes the paper, sets it aside, and starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Raikou! Legend of Thunder", part 2)

(We join Ash, Brock and the band onstage-Ash has his Pokeflute, and Brock has some bongo drums)

Brock: I thought I'd give the guitar a rest tonight... (laughter) Take it, Ash...

(Ash plays a light riff, then Brock picks up the pace with some exuberant drumming)

Brock: Ho'oh came down from heaven,
Just to see a matinee!
Every moment brought a miracle
Like the day she came my way!

She said, "I flew
Right out of paradise,
Just to find piece of mind."

She said, "I don't regret a minute of it,
Cause I'm havin' a good time!"
Then she came, came to me!
And whispered in my ear,

Ash and Brock: I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!

(Brock proceeds to perform a vocal trumpet solo, while Ash counters with a Pokeflute riff)

Brock: An angel came down from heaven,
Just to feel a rainy day!
Every raindrop brought such joy and pain,
Like the day she walked my way!

Well, she wrapped her arms around me,
Spoke so tenderly,
"Just as long as you are willing," she said,
"It's not hard to be free!"
Then she turned to leave,
Then she whispered in my ear,

I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!
I would do anything!

(As Brock continues singing "I would do anything", the girls join in with the percussion singing "Nomani dakedo" as a countermelody while Ash continues playing)

Brock: AI! (wild applause as the gang and the band bow)

Ash: That was fun, but we've gotta wrap this up...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Raikou! Legend of Thunder", part 3)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Brock onstage)

Ash: We're about out of time for tonight...

Brock: I think Pikachu likes my beat... (continues playing his beat from earlier, while Pikachu dances)

Ash: See ya next time! Nomani dakedo! (the curtain closes as a Pokeflute riff begins)

(Brock resumes singing "I would do anything", while the girls continue with their chant of "Nomani dakedo" in the background as the credits roll)

ANP #038: Pokemon's Rescue Rangers


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)
Brock: No case too big, no case too small, just give your local Pokemon Ranger a call! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we're featuring some highly adventurous types...ones you'll find in the Safari Zone and other parks. (Some curious murmurs waft through the audience) Who are they, you ask? None other than Pokemon Rangers! (applause) That being said, join me in welcoming our two guests to the stage.

(Applause as Kazuki and Hinata, along with their Pokemon, run onstage. Plusle and Minun opt to play with Pikachu while Kazuki and Hinata make themselves comfy in two chairs facing Ash)

Hinata: Thanks so much for allowing us to come, Ash....plus it's great to see you again.

Kazuki: It's great to see you again as well...even though we were both on the movie 9 set a few days ago!

Hinata: I have to wonder how the film crew handles your scenes with the Kyorge...

Kazuki: Easy...I do what I'm told for that scene with a sandbag representing the Kyorge. The Kyorge will be drawn in later. (light applause)

Ash: Can you tell the audience something about movie 9, Kazuki?

Kazuki: The only thing I CAN tell them without spoiling anything is that it involves Kyorge...and it features a new Pokemon--but that's a surprise! (light laughter and applause)

Ash: Coming to theaters this summer! (more applause as Kazuki takes a bow.)

(Just then, Brock peeks onstage, a pile of reeds in his hand)

Brock: Anyone got any tape?

Pikachu: Pika! (Minun hands some tape to Pikachu, who gives it to Brock.)

Brock: Thanks... (heads offstage)

Hinata: Kazuki, you didn't forget the video, did you?

Kazuki: I made sure to grab it before we left the base this morning. (threads the reel in the projector, then Ash starts it)

(CARTOON-"Go, Go, Pokemon Ranger!", part 1)

(Hinata and Plusle observe Misty at the drawing board)

Plusle: Plus!

Misty: You like that? (The berry Misty was drawing comes to life, and Plusle quickly consumes it.)

Hinata: I guess Plusle wanted a snack...

(Suddenly, Plusle's ears prick up in interest at the sound of panpipes wafting through the backstage area. She bounds off of Hinata's shoulder in search of the sound)

Hinata: What is it, Plusle? (scans the sound wave pattern with her Capture Styler as she follows Plusle) It appears to be the sound of a wind instrument...and Plusle must like the song of whoever's playing it.

(Misty catches up to Hinata in the hallway.)

Misty(thinking): So THAT's what Brock was doing with all those reeds--making panpipes!

(Sure enough, Brock sits against a pile of boxes, playing a simple melody on the panpipes he made earlier. Plusle, as well as Minun and Pikachu, sit nearby, listening to the song)

Misty: Aww...

Hinata: They look cute...and they're obviously enjoying the song...maybe I could set my Styler to play the sound of panpipes to flush out Pokemon...(muses on this as she starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Go, Go, Pokemon Ranger!", part 2)

(Meanwhile, Ash and Kazuki are looking for the girls and their Pokemon)

Kazuki: Minun!

Ash: Pikachu!

(Pikachu hears Ash's voice, and motions for the boys to come closer. Kazuki is interested in the pipes Brock is playing)

Kazuki: Interesting instrument...

Hinata: Isn't it amazing how just a few simple reeds can be so mesmerizing?(listens to Brock play)

(Kazuki notes that Brock has some reeds left over--just enough to make a second instrument! He grabs the extra reeds and begins cutting them.)

(After a few minutes, Kazuki trims the rough edges on his pipes. His first note is a little shaky and wavery, distracting Brock from his song.)

Brock: No, you're not aiming your airstream right at the reed--that's how you get a good sound. (blows a few notes to illustrate his point. Kazuki tries to imitate Brock, but his note still sounds a bit shaky)

Ash: While Brock gives Kazuki a panpipe lesson, let's watch the conclusion of my adventure with Hinata...

(Plusle turns towards the screen as Ash loads the reel in the projector)

(CARTOON-"Go, Go, Pokemon Ranger!" part 3)

(We rejoin the cast onstage)

Kazuki: Let's see if I can do this... (proceeds to play a slightly slower version of Brock's song, to some applause)

Ash: We're almost out of time for tonight...so see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. A panpipe version of "On Our Way" plays in the background as the credits roll)

(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Note to self: Never trust the "Randomize" button. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we're--(Ash is suddenly cut off by random bleeping noises) Brock, what are you--

Brock: I just hit the Transporter's Randomize button, and I'm waiting to see which universe it will contact.

Ash: Errgh...

(Button dial stops on the coordinates for Hyrule, but we see they are very different from the actual Hyrule coordinates)

Brock: Hyrule?

Ash: Uh-oh.

(Light flashes, as three people emerge from the Transporter. A man in a dark trench coat emerges, followed by two other men, one with blond hair and black highlights, with black marks on his eyes, and another with a simple grey tunic)

Man 1: What the-

Man 2: Where are we?

Man 3: Look at the women! (continues oggling over Misty and May)

(Man 1 notices Ash)

Man 1: Demon!

(A sword emerges from a sheath on the man's back, and presses directly against Ash's throat.)

Ash: ::gulp::

(Brock grabs a solid red Poke Ball and heaves it into the air)

Brock: Flames, gather and destroy! Moltres! (The red Poke Ball opens, and Moltres appears)

Pikachu: Pikapi! (fires a thunderbolt at the man, freeing Ash)

Ash: Thanks, Pikachu...recall Moltres, Brock, I'm okay! (Brock obliges)

Man 1: Where are we, Nomen?

Man 2: I don't know, we were outside Kalea just now. Where are Aldez, Eryngo, and Frieda?

Man 3: I don't know, but I don't really care either. (drools over Misty and May) What fine, young women we have here. Think we can stay, Jarred?

Man 1: No, Kent, we need to destroy these demon summoners! (points sword towards Brock) Tell me where we are!

Brock: The theater? We are your friends, not foes.

Ash: Okay guys, why don't you calm down and take a seat?

Nomen: Where are we, demon summoner? (branishes golden sword)

Ash: Okay, first off, the name's Ash. Secondly, you're in my theater, Brock pulled ya here from the Transporter. All right?

Jarred: Why, Ash?

Ash: Because Brock was being stupid!

Brock: Hey! Are you saying I'm stupid? (laughter)

Kent: Clearly he is, or he would have noticed such lovely young ladies here. (kisses the hands of Misty and May)

Jarred: Kent, sit. Oogle the girls later.

Ash: We are your friends, not foes... (starts projector)

(CARTOON-Underworld Connections, part 1)

(Nomen watches, silent, as the projector rewinds)

Jarred: Interesting means of projecting our memories of the great hero, Link...

Nomen: I would say I liked it too, had Loverboy here not been yelling "Kiss! Kiss! Kiss!" the whole time! (laughter)

Kent: Hey, excuuuuuuuuuuse me! (more laughter)

Misty: Who wants to see my magical pencils in action? (Kent is backstage by Misty's side in point two seconds)

Kent: I want see what wonders your drawing utensils weave, my lovely one!

Brock: Hey, that's my line! (laughter as Misty goes to work. A Charmander climbs on the easel to watch)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

Misty(voiceover): All righty, draw Brock here... (a pencil appears and draws Brock on the screen)

Charmander(voiceover): Char! (The pencil draws a green tunic, a matching hat, gloves, white tights, and boots onto Brock)

May(voiceover): Oh you're drawing Link this time?

Brock: Yeah, but how can I be Link without the proper gear?

Misty(voiceover): Just a sec... (The pencil draws the Hylian Shield and Master Sword in Brock's hands)

Brock: Okay, now I need a place to go adventuring...

Misty(voiceover): Outside or in a temple?

May(voiceover): Temple!

Misty(voiceover): Can do! (The pencil draws an exotic looking temple background behind Brock)

(Brock starts exploring the temple, but after going down corridor after corridor, he starts getting a little bored.)

Brock: Some adventure this is...I wish I could have a monster to fight... (The pencil draws a Stalfos before Brock)

Misty(voiceover): Here you go...now, fight!

Brock: ::gulp:: (a dustcloud ensues in the temple as the fight begins...the cloud ultimately escapes the paper and spills out into the real world!)

May: Go, Brock!

Charmander: Char mander! (waves a flag with Brock's face on it)

(Brock peeks out of the dust cloud, now in his normal clothes)

Brock: Mind if I borrow this? (grabs the pencil and erases the Stalfos)

Misty: If only the real Link had it that easy... (starts cleaning up) Okay, guys... (tears the page off) Here you are, an autographed copy!

Kent: OH BABY!!! (attempts to glomp Misty)

Ash: Security!

(Brock stands by the projector, wincing at the pushing, shoving, a mysterious POOF, then screams, followed by more pushing and shoving)

Brock: Don't ask me what's going on back there, I'm only the projectionist. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Underworld Connections", part 2)

(Jarred, Nomen, and Kent watch as Ash tunes a fiddle, and Brock tunes his guitar as the band waits)

Ash: Now it's our turn to perform something for you in return...take it, Brock.

[guitar intro]

Brock: Epona, Epona, come out here by me...
As long as I see you out here, I never shed lonely tears.
Tell me now, Epona, since you're here with me...
We shall rest here together, and our dreams will grow!

However, as wind blows and rain becomes like snow...
As the fire of dawn comes again...
The moon, it is setting now, rising is the sun...
Along with its bright light, you return...

Epona, Epona, come out here by me...
As long as I see you out here, I will never shed a tear.
Tell me now, Epona, since you're here with me...
Listen, please, for I will sing, the song of this time!

[guitar and fiddle solo]

Brock: Hmm...Hmm...

However, as wind blows and rain becomes like snow,
As the time, keeps on, passing by...
Even when I pass on, my voice will sing for you,
The song of this time!

Hmm...Hmm...
As long as I see you out here, I will never shed a tear!
Hmm...Hmm...
I will always remember, the song of this time!
The song of, this time!

(applause as Ash, Brock, and the band bow. Suddenly, they are cut off by random instrument blats.)

Ash: Somebody make them stop! (covers his ears as Kent, Jarred, and Nomen jam on a horn, ocarina, and electric guitar, respectively)

Misty: Time to send these three home...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Underworld Connections", part 3)

(We return to the theater just as the portal closes up)

Ash: Moral of tonight's show, kids: Never trust the Randomizer button! (laughter)

Brock: I'll say...

Ash: We're out of time, so we'll see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

ANP #040: Baby Blues


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses cradling Bonsly)

Brock: Isn't he cute? (Bonsly bites Brock's finger) Yipe! (a final hit of music plays as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we pay tribute to the next generation of Pokemon superstars... (Ash pauses to pick up a Pichu running around his feet) These little guys. (some "Aww"s go up from the audience as Ash cradles the Pichu.)

Misty: How cute...makes me think of Togepi.

(Just then, a Togepi waddles onstage. Brock follows the Togepi, feeding Bonsly)

Misty: OH! (hearts appear in Misty's eyes as she races up to the Togepi and hugs it)

Ash(to the Pichu): Say hi to the audience, Pichu.

Pichu: Hi to the audience, Pichu! (laughter)

Brock: I think you got the budding comedian, Ash. (drapes a towel over one shoulder in preparation to give Bonsly a burping)

(After a few tense seconds, we hear a tiny burp, follwed by a SPLAT!)

(The camera shows a puddle of barf, which Brock is frantically mopping up)

Ash: Catch! (tosses a ball backstage, which Pichu chases) While we clean up our mess, watch this! (starts the projector, then runs to give Brock a hand)

(CARTOON-"A Tree Grows in Kanto")

(Ash rocks the Pichu as Brock finishes cleaning up the mess from earlier)

Ash: You're such a cutie, yes you are!

Pichu: What's this? (holds up a whistle before Ash)

Ash: Well... (takes the whistle and ponders how to explain how to play it to Pichu) This is a whistle...you play it by blowing into this end (gestures to the mouthpiece) and putting your fingers on the holes while you're blowing to make the different notes. Watch... (Ash demonstrates by playing a D scale)

Pichu: Wow! (rummages through a box until he finds another whistle and attempts to copy Ash, much to Misty's chargrin)

Misty: Ick...teach him a song, quick! (covers her ears)

Ash: Here...just follow my fingers... (plays the first two measures of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", which Pichu copies. Ash plays the next two measures, and Pichu copies that, all the way until he can more or less play the whole song.)

Pichu: Hey, guys! (Bonsly and Togepi race over) Listen! (he plays the song. Bonsly and Togepi cheer when he's done.) Now can you play something with a beat?

Ash: Sure! (starts a rousing reel...until Combusken walks backstage.)

Combusken: Busk...

Ash: Oops...(sheepishly smiles as he pockets the whistle. Combusken smiles and heads back to May's dressing room) Forgot that Combusken doesn't like whistles...

Pichu: Why doesn't she like them?

Ash: Beats me...I can't practice in here, lest she hear me.

Misty: Guys! Come watch this! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu hurry over to where a screen is waiting as sit down as Misty starts the projector.)

(CARTOON-"Who Gets to Keep Togepi?")

(guitar intro as we look in on Brock and the band playing in the theater)

(Ash joins in on whistle...much to Combusken's chagrin. She stomps over and shoots Ash The Look. Ash quickly stops playing and pockets the whistle. Brass and steel drums continue as the light comes up on Brock strumming to the beat.)

(Ash dashes backstage and resumes playing his whistle, much to the delight of Bonsly, Togepi and Pichu, they dash onstage before Brock can solo.)

Brock: One sunny morning, I got up late,
And there were these Mankeys outside the gate! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu run around Brock's feet)
The guards tried to stop them, they had no luck,
The Mankeys broke free and they ran amok! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu run offstage, forcing Brock to chase after them)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: So I dropped by to see the studio nurse, (we see Nurse Joy tending to some Pokemon)
I came downstairs, and what could be worse?
The Mankeys were doing a crazy dance, (we see Bonsly and Pichu dancing)
And they put Ledybas inside my pants! (we see Togepi do just that, making Brock dance along with Bonsly and Pichu)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Mankeys dance, and I dance too!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: I ran onstage, and grabbed a stick, (Brock swipes a drumstick nearby the drummer)
I'm telling you guys, those Mankeys were quick! (Brock is shocked at what he sees back in the Pokemon Center)
Cause when I returned, much to my disgrace,
The Mankeys had Nurse Joy in a warm embrace! (Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu cling to Nurse Joy)

Nurse Joy: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Pichu: For a credit, I'll give you a clue!

Togepi: I didn't know your eyes were so blue!

Brock: I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

(Brock dashes outside to escape the babies. Ash takes this opportunity to solo with the band. He continues to play as Brock dashes back inside and all around the backstage area.)

Brock: I went for a bath, took a shower, and shave,
The Mankeys gonna send me off to my grave!
The entire bathroom was laid to rest,
And they tried to shave my head with toothpaste! (We see Brock with a mound of toothpaste on his head as Pichu and Togepi prepare to shave him, or try to. Brock races from the bathroom before the shaving begins)
I don't know what to say, the Mankey's won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: These guys are crazy, I'm telling you!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Now by this time, and without much flair,
They used a basting brush to comb my hair! (We see Togepi and Pichu doing just that, making Brock's hair stick up in fifteen defferent directions)
I asked them to leave, but they stayed around,
They pulled the handle and I went down! (Pichu flushes Brock down the toilet)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Brock: Call my agent, I'm fixing to sue!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

(Ash and the band solo again as Brock chases the babies, but Combusken stops Ash mid-solo. A dust cloud ensures as Ash and Combusken fight each other. Brock gets pulled into the fray as Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu dance by with maracas. Before they can dance out the stage door, Brock finds them, and the chase resumes again.)

Brock: My patience ran out, and this time for sure,
I am gonna show those Mankeys the door!
And if they don't leave, I'm inviting you, (Brock throws on an apron and enters his dressing room, where a pot is simmering on the stove)
To my place for dumplings and Mankey stew! (We see Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu in the pot)
I don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do! (they continue cooking Brock)

Brock: Now I'm in the stew...oh pooh...

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do! (Brock escapes the pot and runs away!)

Brock: Watch out for Mankeys, I'm telling you!

Bonsly, Togepi, Pichu, Ash and Nurse Joy: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Bonsly, Togepi, and Pichu: We're not Mankeys, we're just cuckoo!

Bonsly, Togepi, Pichu, Ash, and Nurse Joy: Don't know what to say, the Mankeys won't do!

Ash: Cha-cha-cha! (applause as everyone bows)

Togepi: Can we do that again?

Brock: Oh, please, no! (laughter as Brock dashes backstage. Misty just rolls her eyes as she starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Party Panic!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Misty, and the babies onstage)

Ash: Well, it's almost time to say goodbye... (all the babies start crying)

Misty: Hey, we'll be back tomorrow! (the babies cheer)

Ash: See you next time! (waves)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #041: That Old Black Magic!


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his movie 8 costume)

Brock: Freezing wind, speak of forgotten truths! Blizzara! (blue light flashes from Brock's hands, freezing the title card) Oops...the show's just as cool!
(smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd--we notice that he's wearing the same attire we see him wear in the OP)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we're devoting the show to magic--and what better way to start that working some magic myself! (applause as Ash removes his hat and sets it on the table) For my first trick, I will pull Pikachu from my hat. (summons a magic wand from thin air) Hocus pocus, slickety slam, a razzle ma taz, and Alakazam! (a puff of smoke appears, but Togepi appears in the hat.) Oops, wrong Pokemon....(shoos Togepi offstage) Hocus pocus, slickety slam, a razzle ma taz, and Alakazam! (another puff of smoke appears, but a Pichu is in the hat.) Close enough...

(Ash starts digging through the hat, looking for Pikachu.)

Ash: Nope...(tosses a baseball aside and pulls out his Rustboro souvenir outfit) I was wondering where that went! (tosses it aside....and pulls out Onix!)

Brock: Onix? How'd you get in there?

Ash: Don't ask. (continues rummaging through the hat. Some of the items that come out include jacks, superballs, various Pokemon, and a 50 mile long strand of ribbons. Misty comes onstage, piqued by the items flying backstage.)

Misty: What's going on?

Brock: Ash was gonna pull Pikachu out of the hat, but now he's pulling out everything but the kitchen sink. (no sooner does Brock say this, does a sink come flying backstage)

Misty: NOW he's pulled out the kitchen sink. (giggles)

(Frustrated, Ash shakes the hat, and even more stuff comes falling to the floor...and Pikachu's at the top!)

Pikachu: Pika! (waves as the crowd applauds)

Ash: Bout time...(brushes himself off)

Misty: I'll go tell our guest that she's on...(heads backstage)

Ash: Until then, you guys can watch this. (digs through the pile of stuff until he finds the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"As Clear as Crystal!")

(We join Ash (now in his normal clothes) onstage)

Ash: Now...join me in welcoming Master Mage Lilly to the stage. (applause as Lily skips onstage and makes herself comfortable before Ash)

Lily: Thanks so much for allowing me to come join you tonight!

Ash: My pleasure.

Lily: In fact, I have a special surprise for you!

Ash: Oh? (he gets up from the chair, excited)

Lily: Yeah, just close your eyes...

Ash: Okay... (closes his eyes)

Lily: Pika pika! Round and round you go....Pikachu!

(a yellow puff of smoke engulfs Ash...when the smoke clears, we see a Pikachu with some features of Ash standing before Lily. The audience applauds.)

Ash: Dah! Not being turned into a Pikachu again!!!!

Lily: You seemed to enjoy it the last time, so I made an extra strong version of the Pika-Pika Special that lasts twice as long as the normal spell! (Ash sulks as the audience applauds)

Ashachu: Well...being a Pikachu isn't that bad...(practices his Agility by running a few laps around the stage.) At least I get improved agility! (laughter as Ashachu races about)

(Meanwhile, Brock is backstage, watching all this unfold while tuning his guitar)

Brock: What's the Pika-Pika Special, anyway?

Misty: When we last saw Lily in the Orange Islands, she used that same spell to turn Ash into a Pikachu.

Brock: Hmm...he does look cute as a Pikachu...

Misty: Watch this...this'll help you understand. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Hocus Pokemon", part 1)

(Brock walks onstage with his guitar, bemused as Ash continues to race about with his newfound Pikachu agility.)

Brock: Fancy a song, Lily? (waits as the band joins him)

Lily: Sure! Sing something about magic!

Brock: All righty then!

(guitar intro)

Brock: Music is Magic!
Nothin can compare!
Everybody starts to rock
When music's in the air!

Music is Magic!
Music makes you whole...
(Music is Magic!)
It wraps itself around you,
Filling up your soul!

Music is Magic!
Cuts through sadness like a knife!
Wondrous and mystical,
(Music is Magic)
Somethin' of a miracle!
(Sweet, sweet Magic)
Music is the sweet, sweet sound of love!

(Music is Magic!)
Music sets you free!
(Music is Magic!)
It lets you see the world the way it oughtta be!

Music is Magic!
Cuts through sadness like a knife!
Wondrous and mystical,
(Music is Magic)
Somethin' of a miracle!
(Sweet, sweet Magic)
Music is the sweet, sweet sound of love!

(Music is Magic!)
Music sets you free!
(Music is Magic!)
It lets you see the world the way it oughtta be!

(Music is Magic!)
Music makes you fly!
(Music is Magic!)
It finds you when you're low
And lifts you to the sky!
(Music is Magic!)
(Music is Magic!)

(applause as Brock and the band bow)

Lily: Bravo! Encore!

Misty: Here's the conclusion of our cartoon--watch that while I try to get Lily to turn Ash back. (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Hocus Pokemon", part 2)

(We join Ashachu, Lily, and Misty onstage)

Ashachu: Come on, Lilly, I've had enough of being a Pikachu!

Lilly: Well...

Ashachu: Please?

Lilly: Okay! Heavenly wind, carry us to the fountain of power! Esuna!

(a puff of blue smoke appears...and when it clears, Ash is seen.)

Ash: Thanks...I do appriciate my human form. (laughter) We're out of time for tonight, so I'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (he, Ash, and Lily wave goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

You did made a mistake in this one though. I tell you in the club.

Yay!!

That was the best episode ever!!!! ^_^

*applauds Lightning Topaz*

Thank you so much for doing it for me.


It made me laugh so much, especially at the end.

And I loved Ash's line where he said, "Thanks...I do appreciate my human form.".

Hehe, that was hilarious.

LOL. XD



And by the way, I didn't say Lily appeared in the Orange Islands, I said she appeared back in Johto.

I'm sorry for the misunderstanding.

Maybe you can edit your post on here and on Bulbagarden by saying Johto.

And also, Brock was there when Ash first got turned into a Pikachu, but May and Max weren't (that's why I was surprised they weren't in this one).

That's another little mistake I noticed.

EmeraldSky
February 10th, 2006, 05:37 AM
Forgive me for mixing up my seasons...I was pretty sure that episode aired in the Island arc...

Today: Team Rocket bombards the show with commecials...but Ash and co. fight back! (also a field test for more mess)

ANP #042: Too Many Words From Our Sponsors


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Beware of imitations, accept no substitutes, batteries not included. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! I just want to take a minute to let our sponsors know how much we appriciate them....

(Meanwhile, in a Team Rocket base, Jessie, James, and Meowth watch "The Ash and Pikachu Show" on a TV)

Jessie: There he goes, thanking the little people again...

Meowth: We could try and get recognition on da show again, but who knows what song da twerps have planned for tonight?

James: This time, how about we annoy the audience?

Meowth: Yeah! We could annoy da audience with commoicials! With a lot of commoicials, the audience won't wanna watch! We'll put so many commoicials on da show, the audience will leave...(we see the audience leaving the theater while the gang continues the show...) and den, it'll be time for "Da Team Rocket Show!"

(Meowth's dream sequence-A messed up version of "On Our Way" plays as various Rocket grunts get ready for a show, in a clever parody of our show's opening, culminating in James making a flying leap onto the stage in a purple top hat and tails, clearly parodying Ash. A female announcer calls "And now, it's time for the Team Rocket Show!" Meowth makes a jump into the air as the parody title card flies in from the right...but a familiar face pops up after the title card...)

Wobbufett: WAAAAA-BA-FETT!

Meowth: Who said you could be on da show? (shoos Wobbufett away)

James: Commercials...what a great idea! (grabs a few products and leads his comrades out the door)

(Back in the theater, Ash is winding up his sponsor spiel)

Ash: ...and so, to all our sponsors, I say, thank you! (a crash is heard) Huh?

(The lights come up on Team Rocket)

Jessie: To protect the viewers from devastation...

James: And broadcast our own show throughout our nation...

Jessie: To announce the the evils of truth and love,

James: To extend your knowledge far above...

Jessie: Jessie!

James: James!

Jessie: Team Rocket! Broadcast at the speed of light!

James: Surrender now, or see black and white...

Meowth: Meowth! Dat's right! And have we got a deal for you!

Ash: Huh?

Meowth: Presenting the Shlocko Pasta Pot 3000! (a pot with holes in the lid is seen) Now you won't have to worry about a mess when draining pasta, cause all da water comes out of da lid! (demonstrates over a sink, but the lid comes off, sending the pasta down the drain.)

Ash: That's really neat, but we really need to get on with the show. (shoos Team Rocket offstage and starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Poke-Spokesperson", part 1)

(Backstage, Ah talks to Misty)

Ash: What are we gonna do, Misty? Team Rocket's crashing the show with commercials for useless knick-knacks that never work...

James: How do you know that THIS doesn't work? (shoves a flashlight in Ash's face)

Misty: What's that?

James: This, my friend is the Acme EverBurn Flashlight! Guaranteed to never burn out or your money back!

Misty: Oh really? Then why do I smell smoke?

(James looks down and notices that his flashlight's in flames...he quickly darts backstage)

Misty: Now to draw something...(walks backstage to the drawing board..but Jessie stops her)

Jessie: Clutter cramping your space? Then you need some Shlocko Vacuum Bags! (holds up some large plastic bags in Misty's face)

Misty: Oooh... (stomps up to Jessie) How dare you interrupt my drawing time with a sales pitch? (continues to scream at Jessie as Ash sneaks over to the projector)

Ash: Due to technical difficulties, "Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty" will not be seen today...

Brock: Who said they were technical? (watches as Ash starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Poke-Spokesperson", part 2)

(Backstage, Brock enters the prop room in search of something to fight Team Rocket)

Brock: Let's see what we've got in here that would work is a Team Rocket repellent... (rummages through the props until he spots a bag full of green powder) Hmm... (studies the bag) Acme Powdered Slime Mix? Hmm...

(After making some slime and rigging a bucket of it over Team Rocket...)

Brock(to the audience): I saw this on TV once, guys, and you may remember it too...when Team Rocket says "I don't know" they'll get a nice surprise....

(Back onstage, Team Rocket is plugging another product)

James: ...is there anything this cannot do?

Jessie: I don't know....

(Brock yanks the rope to tip the bucket, sliming Jessie)

Jessie: Okay, who slimed me?

Meowth: I dunno...

(Brock triggers another bucket, sliming Meowth. May hands him another slime bucket, which Brock rigs to his apparatus. Ash and Misty continue making more slime)

Meowth: Dah! Now my fur's all green!

James: Where's the slime coming from?

Jessie: I don't know... (Jessie is slimed again)

May: This is fun! (delivers another slime bucket to Brock)

Meowth: Let's get out of here before we get even more messy! (Team Rocket flees out the stage door, to thunderous applause. Ash mops up the mess onstage before addressing the audience.)

Ash: Well, it's about that time....

May: What time?

Ash: I don't know... (braces himself for slime, but no slime comes) Hey, it doesn't work!

Brock: That's because Team Rocket's gone, Ash...

Ash: If Muk were here, he'd use Toxic!

(No sooner does Ash say "Toxic" does purple slime come falling onto him)

May: I think the prop crew found your apparatus, Brock.... (laughter as Ash storms backstage to clean up)

Brock: Looks like I'll be saying goodbye... (to the audience) Thanks for coming, and we'll see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll. After the credits run, the curtain reopens and we see Ash, now clean.)

Ash: Note to self: Don't say Toxic. (Ash is slimed again, and the curtain closes to end the show.)

Brock: Wait a second...are you SURE it's time for the show? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you...tonight we take a look at one of my other companions--more specifically, a Pokemon watcher that joined up with Misty and i while we traveled in the Orange Islands. (applause) So, please welcome Tracey to the stage. (applause as a spotlight appears at stage right, but nobody enters.

Misty(offstage): Did someone forget to tell him he's on?

(Backstage, a stagehand knocks at the door of Tracey's dressing room.)

Stagehand: Mister Sketchit, you're on!

Tracey: Be right there! (continues a drawing, oblivious to the knocking from outside)

(back onstage, Ash paces the floor)

Ash: Where IS Tracey, anyway? I asked the stagehands to tell him when he's on...

Pikachu: Pika! (darts backstage and down to the dressing room hallway, where he notices one door ajar. He darts inside and hops up on a desk facing Tracey.) Chupi!

Tracey: Huh? (puts his drawing away)

Pikachu: Pikapi pika chu! (leads Tracey outside and onstage, to light applause.)

Ash: Thanks, Pikachu...(to Tracey) What took so long?

Tracey: I had to finish this sketch of a Magikarp. (displays his sketch to the audience, making oohs and ahhs waft through the crowd)

Misty: Reminds me of the time we met that crazy Magikarp watcher...

Tracey: I remember that! What was that guy's name? (ponders this as Brock wheels out the projector)

Ash: Maybe this cartoon should help? (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Wacky Watcher!")

(We see the inside of a radio's CD player, empty. Some hands that look like Ash's put in a red and blue CD, which plays a remix of "Gotta Catch'em All!" After a few minutes, the hands change the CD to a gold and silver one, which plays a remix of "Born to Be a Champion". After a few more seconds, the hands change the CD to a CD shaped like Pikachu's head, which plays a slightly glitched version of "On Our Way". A female annoucer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the Pikachu shaped CD plays.)

(We return to the theater, where May is prepping the stage with a smaller stage. Ash and Tracey watch this, bemused.)

Ash: May, why the set change?

May: I thought I might try a little acting tonight. (admires her makeshift mini stage)

Misty: Acting? Sounds fun!

Brock: What light, through yonder window breaks? (laughter)

May: What window? (more laughter)

Tracey: What part can I play? (runs to help May)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see Nurse Joy, Tracey, Ash, and Brock seated in a movie theater, while an adventure movie is in progress. Brock spots Nurse Joy setting a few seats over and decides to get her attention.)

Brock: Hey, Ash? (nudges Ash)

Ash: Yeah?

Brock: Ask Nurse Joy if she wants popcorn. (offers a popcorn bag to Ash)

Ash(to Tracey): Ask Nurse Joy if she wants popcorn. (hands off the bag of popcorn)

Tracey: Want some popcorn? (offers popcorn to Nurse Joy)

Nurse Joy: Why thank you. (eats the popcorn)

(A short while later, Brock decides to try to get Nurse Joy's attention again)

Brock: Hey, Ash? (nudges Ash)

Ash: Yeah?

Brock: Ask Nurse Joy if she wants a drink. (offers a soda cup to Ash)

Ash(to Tracey): Ask Nurse Joy if she'd like a drink. (hands off the soda cup)

Tracey: Want a drink? (offers the soda to Nurse Joy)

Nurse Joy: Yes, please. (sips the soda)

(During the love scene, Brock tries to get Nurse Joy's attention again)

Brock: Hey, Ash? (nudges Ash)

Ash: Yeah?

Brock: Ask Nurse Joy if she'd like this charm bracelet as a token of my love. (offers a bracelet with various charms on it to Ash)

Ash(to Tracey): Ask Nurse Joy if she'd like this charm bracelet. (hands off the bracelet)

Tracey: Would you like this charm bracelet? (offers the bracelet to Nurse Joy)

Nurse Joy: Why, thank you, Tracey...you shouldn't have. (puts the bracelet on. Laughter as Brock slumps in his seat, dejected)

(The scene changes to the cast seated at a dinner table. Ash puts some salt on his food, but notices that the pepper is on the other end of the table, by Pikachu.)

Ash: Pass the pepper, sombody....

(the request goes down the line until it gets to Misty, who's next to Pikachu.)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash wants the pepper.

Pikachu: Pikachu! (hands off a bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line until it gets to Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not BLACK pepper, just pepper.

(the request goes down the line again to Misty)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash still wants the pepper.

Pikachu: Pika! (hands off another bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line again until it reaches Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not CAYENNE pepper...

(the request goes down the line again to Misty)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash still wants the pepper...

Pikachu: Pika! (hands off another bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line again until it reaches Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not LEMON pepper...

Misty: Then what pepper DO you want?

Ash: The toilet pepper! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Back onstage, Brock and May are still laughing over Ash's "toilet pepper" joke)

Brock: Ha, ha...the toilet pepper...good one, Ash! (laughs some more)

Ash: And to think I made that punch line up! (light laughter)

May: I'm glad you guys had fun acting...(takes down the mini stage)

Brock: Let's do it again, sometime...like maybe next season? (applause)

Ash: Well, until then, watch this. (starts projector)

(CARTOON-"Tracey Gets Bugged!", part 1)

(We return to the stage to see Brock and the band.)

Ash: And now, time for a song...

Tracey: This oughta be good! (sits down to listen)

(music begins)

Brock: How I want you, I can't see you
This feeling here, feels so lonely...
I can't tell you, but I want to
My chance, always keeps passing me by!

But still, but still,
My wings are spread, and I will fly right to you!
In the sky, marathon,
Dreams are in unison with yours!

Now I'll catch you, catch you,
Catch me, catch me, wait up!
Look this way and tell me that you love me!

So, nice to meet you,
Good to see you, I'm sure!

My feelings for you, let's take them to the stars
And they're flying, flying, flying, to you!
I, will, not, give, up!

Every day now, I am tired,
I'm recharging my batteries
However, with your smile,
I'm up and at full power, I'm ready to go!

Oh please, oh please,
I met you first, you are my first best friend!
I will smile, look at you, be with you, and have fun!

Now I'll catch you, catch you,
Catch me, catch me, of course!
Just us two, we're here forever.

So, nice to meet you,
Good to see you, I'm sure!

I will not give in to anything at all!
I am number, number, number, the one!
I, am, so, in, love!

[dance break/guitar solo]

Now I'll catch you, catch you,
Catch me, catch me, wait up!
Look this way and tell me that you love me!

So, nice to meet you,
Good to see you, I'm sure!

My feelings for you, let's take them to the stars
And they're flying, flying, flying, to you!
I, will, not, give, up!

Now I'll catch you, catch you,
Catch me, catch me, of course!
Just us two, we're here forever.

So, nice to meet you,
Good to see you, I'm sure!

I will not give in to anything at all!
I am number, number, number, number, the one!
I, am, so, in, love! (applause as Brock and the band bow)

Tracey: Bravo!

Ash: Thanks, guys...and now, the conclusion of our cartoon... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Tracey Gets Bugged!", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Tracey onstage)

Ash: Well, we're out of time for tonight...

Tracey: Thanks for letting me come tonight, Ash...I had fun! (some "Awws" go up from the audience as Ash and Tracey hug)

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Attention: Please keep your hands and arms inside the Warp Star at all times. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We join Ash onstage in a spotlight, pacing the stage)

Ash: Of all the times for the Transporter to go down for maintenence, the maintenence crew had to pick today!

(Misty rushes onstage, concerned)

Misty: Calm down, Ash...they said they'd be done in an hour!

Ash: But the show will be over long before they're done! (light laughter) I had planned to use the Transporter to call a guest character here, so now we don't have a show! (As Ash is talking, Brock enters with one of Misty's easels and sets it up.)

Brock: Forgetting something, Ash? (continues setting up the easel)

Ash: What's the easel for?

Brock: Since the Transporter's down for maintenence--

Misty: That's why Ash has been complaining for the last few minutes. (laughter)

Brock: Anyway...since the Transporter's down for maintenence, why not DRAW Ash's planned guest into existence? (brandishes one of Misty's pencils for emphasis)

Ash: Brock, you're a genius! (glomps Brock)

Brock: Easy there, Ash...(to Misty) You don't mind if I borrow one of your pencils, do you, Misty?

Misty: Just be careful with it and put it back when you're done.

Brock: Okay! (to Ash) Who were you planning on bringing here?

Ash: I was going to bring... (whispers the character's name in Brock's ear)

Brock: Oh, that's an easy character to draw! (approaches the easel) First, we draw a circle...(Brock draws a circle, then adds pudgy arms and feet to the circle) Then, we dot the eyes... (Brock adds some small eyes to the round creature) Add a great big smile...(he draws a smile on the puffball and colors it)

Misty: Hey, I know who you're drawing!

Brock: ...and presto! It's Kirby! (sticks the pencil behind his ear as his Kirby drawing steps off the paper and glances around at the audience, amazed.)

Ash: See all those people out there, Kirby? They came to see you. (gestures to the audience, Kirby looks at Ash, confused)

Misty: I think we may have to explain the concept of a "show", to the little guy.

Ash: Chalkboard...(May appears wheeling out a chalkboard. Ash picks up a piece of chalk and draws the stage, as well as a stick figure representation of himself.) This is a stage...it's what we're standing on right now. (Kirby nods to show he understands) On a stage, people get together and show off their talents...this is known as a "show". (Kirby smiles, pleased with the idea)

Misty: But we need to get ready before we start...so why don't you watch this while we do that? (threads a reel in the projector and starts it. Kirby smiles when he sees the title on the screen)

(CARTOON-"Kirby Comes to Cappy Town", part 1)

(We see a pair of live hands that look like Ash's at the controls of a spaceship. He sees an asteroid, and quickly hits a button marked "WARP DRIVE", making the outside view blur, giving the illusion Ash is traveling really fast. The spaceship zips by a planet shaped like a Pikachu head. A female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the Pikachu planet turns.)

(Onstage, Pikachu spots Kirby watching the cartoon. He sits next to Kirby, bemused as May appears wih her mini-stage)

May: So Brock really DID draw Kirby here! Cool!

Ash: We're still thinking about how to get him home to Dream Land when the show's over...

Brock: Erasing him wouldn't work...(Kirby's eyes tear up at the mention of the word 'erase') Hey, I'm not gonna erase you, little guy, we'll get you home to Dream Land as best as we know how, okay? (Kirby smiles again, and inhales Pikachu's popcorn bag, much to Pikachu's chargrin)

May: While we think about that, how would you like to watch us play pretend? (Kirby abandons Pikachu and the projector and settles before the mini stage)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see Brock, in breeder's attire, reading a newspaper, all while Torchics frolic about in the background.)

Brock: I can't believe it! (reads the headline to the audience) "Torchic demand at record high"...I bet I'll have trainers coming to me in droves to adopt one of my Torchic pairs...(May and Misty, in the roles of young trainers, walk in the room as Brock is talking.) Well, hello, girls..what can I do for you today?

Misty: We heard that you're the guy to see when it comes to Torchics...

May: Yeah! We'd like to adpot a pair of our own!

Brock: All right, just take a look around until you find the pair you'd like. (May and Misty nod, then wander around the stage for a moment)

(a "1 week later..." card appears)

(Brock continues to read newspaper as Misty and May enter again)

Brock: Hello, girls...what can I do for you?

Misty: We came because one of our friends wanted to try raising Torchics herself....

May: But even though we told her it'd be a lot of work, she still wanted to try it!

Brock: All right, just take a look around until you've found the pair she'd like. (May and Misty nod, then wander around the stage again)

(another "1 week later..." card appears)

(Brock spots the girls as they enter again)

Brock: So how is your friends Torchic doing, girls?

Misty: We're not sure...

Brock: Huh?

May: She said to ask if she's either planting them too close or not watering them enough...she says they're not growing very fast! (laughter as Brock rolls his eyes)

(We see the cast doing various jobs at a construction site. Misty, the foreman, notices Ash fiddling with a flashlight)

Misty: What are you doing? Get back to work!

Ash: But I am working! I'm giving the other workers some light!

Misty: Just get back to work, okay? (leaves the site)

(Several hours later, Misty returns to discover Ash with the flashlight)

Misty: WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU??

Ash: Okay! (sets the flashlight down and picks up a shovel. Just as he does, the other workers scatter)

Misty: What's the matter now?

May: We can't work in the dark! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Kirby howls with laughter as May takes down the mini stage)

Misty: Now see? Wasn't playing pretend fun? (Kirby cheers in agreement. Pikachu threads another reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Kirby Comes to Cappy Town", part 2)

Ash: Now, Kirby...(before he can say more, he sees Misty enter.) Yes?

Misty: I just checked in with the maintence crew...they say the upgrade time went faster than expected, and the Transporter should be ready in a few minutes! (applause)

Ash: Great!

Brock: Hey Kirby...I wrote a song for you. (Kirby glances at Brock, interested) Wanna hear it? (Kirby smiles) Okay!

(Brock appears in marching band attire and blows a whistle, starting a march beat. The others appear in similar costumes, the boys in matching marching band costumes, and the girls in pink cheerleader outfits with yellow stars on them.)

Brock: Every day, he's always sleeping,
It's Kirby of the stars!
Not what he appears, he's really strong!
Is he really here?

Legendary hero, here to save us
Legendary power, aiding him!
Warrior! Of the Star! Save the day!
You deserve a cheer, Kirby!

In the peaceful paradise,
Someone here is crying, can you see their tears?
Eat up all those nasty dreams!
So they will not bother us again!

We are off to search for that smile
That always will brighten our day!
So breathe in the stars up in the sky!
Unleash all their power in this darkest night!

Tiny little circle of pinkish hue
It's Kirby of the stars!
He can turn into anything he wants to,
Is that really true?

Hero of legend, here to save us
Legendary power, aiding him!
Warrior! Of the Star! Save the day!
We count on you, Kirby!

[dance break-the cast parades around the stage, joined by lots of other Kirbies. During the second section, the girls do a twirling routine with Star Rods, then a line reforms onstage, with Brock and the original Kirby in the center.]

Brock: Tiny little circle of pinkish hue
It's Kirby of the stars!
He can turn into anything he wants to,
Is that really true?

Hero of legend, here to save us
Legendary power, aiding him!
Warrior! Of the Star! Save the day!
We count on you, Kirby! (everyone poses, to some applause)

Transporter: Coordinates entered: 042792. Destination: Dream Land...

Brock: Here's your ride home, Kirby... (leads Kirby to the waiting Transporter as the scene fades out)

(CARTOON-"Kirby Comes to Cappy Town", part 3)

(Back onstage, Misty waves goodbye to Kirby as the portal closes)

Misty: I'm gonna miss the little guy...

Ash: Don't worry, Misty...we can see him in our dreams! (applause) We're out of time for tonight, so see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #045: Welcome to the Jungle


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene in a blue Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses)

Brock: In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd. Pikachu follows him, clad in safari attire)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we finally continue our look at the Frontier Brains...we're going on safari to the Battle Palace! (applause) That explains Pikachu's attire. (mild laughter) That being said, we're having the Palace brain, Spenser, guiding us on our adventure. (applause as Spenser appears in a spotlight)

Pikachu: Pika! (runs over and nuzzles Spenser)

Spenser: Hello there, Pikachu...it's good to see you again.

Ash: I'm happy to say Sceptile remembers all his moves now...plus a few new ones! (applause)

Spenser: Which reminds me...I found this as I was cleaning the palace the other day...(presents a reel to Ash) I think that may be the recording of our battle.

Ash: Well, let's watch it! (threads the reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Ash, Ash, Ash of the Jungle", part 1)

(We see a pair of animated hands that look like Ash's clearing the way through a temple ruin in a jungle...after some clearing of foilage and stepping among ruins, the hands lift a Pikachu statue from a treasure chest. A female voice says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the camera focuses on the statue's smiling face)

(Spenser smiles as the projector switches off)

Spenser: Ah...I feel nostalgic already...

(Just then, May enters with the mini-stage)

May: Who's up for some acting?

Ash: I am! (hops up on the mini stage and poses for the audience)

Spenser: Your anergy hasn't changed since we battled, Ash...you're raring to go, just like you were that day...

Ash: Then why am I standing around looking all cool for?

Misty: Actually, I think you look silly that way. (laughter as Ash facefalls)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see the inside of a movie studio. Brock, as the director, is looking on a set of a Western town as the others, as the actors, mill about.)

Brock: Okay, guys! Places! (everyone rushes into position. May, the cameraperson, approaches Brock)

May: Uh sir?

Brock: Not right now, May...let's get this done first. "The Legend of Sheriff Ketchum", take 1...and...action!

(guitar riff as Kamon, playing the role of the villian, saunters onto the set)

Kamon(in his best Western drawl): Whar's that no-good, bow-legged, buggy eyed sheriff?

Ash(in his best Western drawl): Ah'm right hair, Nasty Jack! And you ain't welcome in this here town!

Kamon: Draw! (draws a fake six shooter. Ash does the same and fires a cork into Kamon's stomach, making him play dead)

Brock: And, cut! Not bad, but it needs to be a little more graceful, so let's try it again... (May tugs Brock's shirt sleeve) Yes?

May: Brock, this is urgent!

Brock: Can it wait? (May slinks to her position) Okay..."The Legend of Sheriff Ketchum", take 2...and...action!

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, this time dancing like ballerinas)

Brock: (sigh) I didn't mean that kind of graceful....let's see some action this time! Take 3....

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, only the action is in fast motion)

Brock: Take 4, and slow it down!

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, but now the action is in slow motion)

Brock: Not THAT slow... (May tugs on Brock's shirt sleeve) What is it?

May: I have something to confess...I forgot to put film in the camera this morning. (everyone groans as the scene fades out)

(May walks onstage, but then realizes she forgot something)

May: Uh oh...

Misty: Whats the matter? (listens as May tells her, and gasps) Oh no!

Brock: What's the matter? (listens as Misty tells him) Oh no! Alert the media!

Ash: What's the matter, guys?

Everyone else: WE DON'T HAVE A SKIT!!!! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Spenser is laughing as the scene returns to the panicked group on the mini stage)

Spenser: You don't have a skit, do you? (laughs)

Ash: Just kidding, that WAS the skit! (applause)

Spenser: Let's watch some more of this then... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Ash, Ash, Ash of the Jungle", part 2)

(We return to the theater to see the cast gathered around Brock, who is tuning his guitar)

Brock: I have help this time... (blows a pitch pipe to Ash, who hums the note back to show he's in tune)

Ash: I-di-di-di-i-di-di-di-di, lee-um-bumba-way...i-di-di-di-i-di-di-di-di, lee-um-bumba-way...

Everyone else: A-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh...

Brock: In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight...
In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight...

Misty and Ash: Ooooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, lee-um-bum-bumba-way...Ooooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, lee-um-bum-bumba-way...

Brock: Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight...
Near the village, the peaceful village, the lion sleeps tonight...

Everyone: A-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh, a-wim-o-weh...

Brock: Hush my darling, don't cry, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight...
Hush my darling, don't fear, my darling, the lion sleeps tonight...

Misty and Ash: Ooooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, lee-um-bum-bumba-way...Ooooooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, lee-um-bum-bumba-way...

Ash: I-di-di-di-i-di-di-di-di, lee-um-bumba-way...i-di-di-di-i-di-di-di-di, lee-um-bumba-way... (Ash continues singing as he starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Ash, Ash, Ash of the Jungle", part 3)

(We rejoin Ash, Pikachu, and Spenser onstage)

Ash: Well, it's about that time...

Spenser: I will say this...you sing very well, Ash.

Ash: Thanks...see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Pokemon tested, trainer approved! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we take a look at one of Brock's crazier Pokemon...(before he can say any more, a Lotad trots out onstage, to some applause) There you go. (gestures to Lotad as the crowd applauds)

Lotad: Tad! Lotad!

Ash: Huh?

Misty: Lotad says Brock's feeling bad, so he can't sing!

(an 'Aww' goes up from the crowd)

Ash: I hope you have a plan B for the musical number...

Misty: Don't worry, I think the audience knows who I asked to come tonight. (some cheers go up from the audience)

Ash: Well, tell them they're not on yet, okay?

Misty: Okay...I'll go take Brock his medicine... (heads offstage with some pills)

(After a few seconds, we hear a fit of coughing, followed by a moan)

Ash: Misty wasn't kidding when she said Brock was feeling bad....

Lotad: Tad...

Ash: It's okay, though, watch this! (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Lotad Lowdown!")

(We see some claymation Ash hands preparing to paint a picture. After some botched attempts, the hands throw all the paint on the canvas in frustration. A female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the paint runs together into the shape of a Pikachu face)

(We hear more coughing, followed by a scratchy voice asking "Misty, a drink, please" from offstage.)

Misty: I think Brock needs more juice. (takes a bottle of juice backstage)

Lotad: Tad? (gives a crude stick figure drawing of Brock to Misty)

Misty: Okay, I'll give this to Brock too. (returns backstage, just as May returns with the mini stage)

May: It's a real bummer Brock has a cold...we'll just have to act without him...

Ash: I know...he wanted to sing too, but I don't think the audience would like hearing (does a scratchy impression of Brock's voice) "Jenny, oh Jenny..." (fakes a bad cough) "Joy, oh Joy..." (fakes another bad cough, with mild laughter from the audience)

Brock(offstage): I heard that! (more laughter)

May: Let's get started, shall we? (steps up on the mini stage)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see Ash appearing to listen for something, but we don't hear anything.)

(Misty, Hiro, Kamon, Crystal, Brendan, and May all walk up to Ash)

Everyone else: What's going on?

Ash: Listen...

(Everyone listens for a moment, but no sound is heard)

Misty: I don't hear anything.

Ash: Just listen, okay?

May: I don't hear anything either...

Ash: It's been like that all day! (laughter)

(We see Ash and Crystal walking through a museum, admiring an exhibit on fountains)

Crystal: These fountains are so beautiful...

Ash: Agreed, especially these two over here...the ones of dancing girls. (Unbeknownest to Ash, the "fountains" are Misty and May in disguise)

Crystal: They almost look like they could come alive! (No sooner does she say that, do Misty and May come alive, playfully dancing and arcing water from their mouths like fountains)

Ash: You look at those while I go get some water... (No sooner does Ash say that, do Misty and May spit water at him)

Crystal: Tell me I didn't see that...

Misty: You didn't! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(Ash steps off the mini stage, soaking wet.)

Ash: Does anyone have a towel? (laughter as Lotad gives Ash a towel, then starts the projector as Ash dries off)

(CARTOON-"Take the Lombre Home!")

(We rejoin Ash in the theater, now dried off and seated before the grand piano.)

Ash: And now, the moment you've all been waiting for... (cheers and applause) Please welcome back Peach and the Poketones! (cheers as Ash begins a slow beat and the Poketones appear in their semicircle)

Peach: When I take the floor
As I've often done before,
I feel a change come over me!

I get such a thrill
It feels like time is standing still,
And starlight is the only thing I see!

When it's only me and the music,
I leave the world behind! (Only me and the music)
When it's only me and the music
I am free!
I am poetry in motion!
When it's only me and the music...

My heart starts to race,
I go soaring into space,
And music is the only thing I hear!

When it's only me and the music,
I leave the world behind! (Only me and the music)
When it's only me and the music,
I am free!
I am poetry in motion!
When it's only me (only me) and the music!

(piano solo)

Peach: When it's only me and the music,
I leave the world behind! (Only me and the music)
When it's only me and the music
I am free!
I am poetry in motion!

May: The Poketones were your plan B? Cool!

Misty: I've been yearning to see them again...

Peach: Thanks, Ash! (Ash takes a bow) And thank you all! (wild applause as the Poketones go backstage)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: I suppose you're wondering why I called you here tonight? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Ash appears in a spotlight, relaxing in an egg chair)

Ash: Thank you....tonights show--

(Before Ash can say any more, Brock enters with several sheets of paper in his hand)

Ash: What's that?

Brock: It's a report I'm writing for school...(starts reading from his paper) "Like TV today, radio was big entertainment in the 1930's and '40's..."

Ash: That's interesting...

Brock: Just think about it, Ash...what would the show be like if we did it back then?

Ash: Hmm...

Brock: Well, I'm going back to work... (heads offstage, and Ash invites Pikachu into his chair)

Ash: Pikachu, what do you think the show would be like if we did it on the radio?

Pikachu: Pika pi...

(Pikachu's ears prick up when he hears a pencil scribbling backstage)

Pikachu: Pika...

Ash: It's just Brock doing some work... (yawns) and I'm tired...

(The scene begins to swirl as Ash slumps down in his chair, asleep. Some TV static appears on the screen, complete with the sound of an old radio tuning. May suddenly appears in the static with a clapboard)

May: Ash's dream sequence, take 1! (claps the clapboard. When the static clears, we see that everything has turned black-and white. Ash, now in a tuxedo and top hat, standing before a mike with the letters KNTO over it. Pikachu, wearing a mini version of Ash's top hat, sits on his shoulder. Ash bows and acknowledges the applause of the studio audience)

Ash: You're listening to the Ash and Pikachu Follies here on KNTO! (more applause) Okay... And now...

Offstage voice: I wanna be, the very best... (light applause as Gary, wearing an outfit similar to a farmer costume, appears on the stage. He produces an apple from his pocket, shines it, and gives it to Ash, with some applause)

Ash: Why, thank you. (Pikachu starts eating the apple)

Gary: I wanna be, the very--

Ash: Wait a sec... (he escorts Gary to center stage, where a larger KNTO mic waits) There...presenting amateur Gary! (applause)

Gary: I wanna be, the very best, like....(mild laughter as Gary tries to remember the next line) Uh, like...(more laughter) Like...(hides his face in embarrassment as the audience laughs)

Pikachu: Pikachu! (displays a "REJECT" sign to the audience. The cane appears and yanks Gary offstage)

Ash: Oh well...after that apple he gave me, I was hoping he'd give me enough for a whole pie! (laughter as the screen swirls again)

(We return to the present to see Ash curled up in his chair mumbling his quip about pie in his sleep. Pikachu is nearby, also snoozing as Misty enters with a plate)

Misty: Ash...

Ash(in his sleep): Enough for an apple pie...

Misty: Ash, wake up!

Ash: Huh? (sits up and rubs his eyes) Oh, Misty, it's just you...

Misty: Why did you fall asleep on the job?

Ash: I guess all the writing Brock was doing put me to sleep. (takes the plate from Misty) Mm, apple pie! Just like in my dream! (starts eating as the scene fades out)

Misty: Boys will be boys... (laughter as the scene fades out)

(We see a pair of animated Ash hands fiddling with a radio. One station plays a loud rock anthem, another station plays the Pokemon March, and another the Pokemon Lullaby. Finally, the station lands on one playing "On Our Way". A female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!' as the camera zooms down to display a Pikachu face sticker on the radio)

(We return to see Ash curled up in his chair again.)

Ash: Ah, that pie was so good... (Ash reaches for a blanket nearby) Now to resume my snooze... (the screen swirls as Ash curls up in the blanket and goes back to sleep again)

(The audience applauds as we return to the flashback. Ash is by his mic again, while Pikachu is holding an "APPLAUSE" sign to the audience)

Ash: Okay! (the applause stops as Ash consults his script.) We now have...the Two Songstresses--Misty and May!

(more applause as Misty and May, both wearing flowing gowns, come onstage and wave to the crowd. Misty takes her place at the large mic, while May walks over to a nearby grand piano. Suddenly, May trips and falls on the piano keys, triggering laughter from the audience. Misty shoots an annoyed look at May, who blushes as she eases herself aboard the piano stool. When all is quiet, May begins to play a quiet riff, while Misty sings in the background. (we, the TV audience, interpret her words as "oohs") We look around the studio audience to see them quietly listening.)

Suddenly, Misty aims for a loud high note, with a piano hit to punctuate it, making the mic begin to sway. At the same time, May's pickup mic begins to shake as the constant hits keep jarring it. Before long, the audience has to struggle to keep from laughing as the girls chase around their respective mics; but the song is ultimately completed. The girls bow to the audience and to Ash before heading offstage)

Ash: Thank you, girls...we need to do something about those microphones. (light laughter) Anyway, next-- (Ash is interrupted by a shady figure walking onstage. Once the figure is settled at the mic, we discover that the figure is actually Gary in disguise. He brandishes a few Poke Balls at the audience)

Gary: I wanna be, the very best...like...um...(the audience laughs again) That does it! (hurls the Poke Balls to the floor, revealing an Umbreon, a Blastoise, and a Dodrio. The audience screams and dives for cover as the three Pokemon go on the rampage. Ash and Pikachu opt to hide behind Ash's podium. Pikachu is clearly panicked, as he is throwing various cue cards about as he scrambles to flee the angered Pokemon. The scene swirls as the carnage unfolds...)

(We return to the present to see Ash struggling with the blanket. May stands nearby, a little concerned.)

May: Ash? Is everything okay?

(Ash wakes up in a sweat, still panicked from his dream. He glances around, relieved that there's no rampaging Pokemon in the theater.)

May: What's the matter, Ash? Bad dream?

Ash: Yeah...Brock asked me to think about what the show would be like if we did it on the radio...and I fell asleep listening to him write...and my dream's been about that very thought!

Brock: What was all that thrashing around out there? (runs onstage to see Ash breathing hard from his dream.) Did my report give you a nightmare or something? (laughter)

Ash: Yeah...I dreamt that our show existed as a radio show...and Gary got mad for Pikachu rejecting his act, so he unleashed his Pokemon to destroy the studio!

Brock: Wow...(tucks Ash in again). Next time, dream that security dragged Gary away before he could do something like that! (laughter) Sweet dreams, okay? (heads backstage to tend to the printer)

Ash: Okay. (pulls the blanket over him and goes back to sleep as the scene swirls again)

(When we return to the flashback, the studio is more or less back to normal. Ash and Pikachu peek out from the podium, afraid)

Pikachu: Pika pi?

Ash: Is it safe to come out? (peeks out to discover the Pokemon gone and breathes a sigh of relief) Okay...(returns to his mic and script) We now have...amateur Brock!

(Brock peeks out from stage left, in a cheesy marching band outfit)

Brock: And his 50 piece band! (light applause) Come on, you guys! Foward, harch! (Brock parades onstage with what looks like an elaborate stage on wheels containing what looks like hundreds of instruments at once, plus a spot for a person to sit down. Pikachu is awed at the device, so much so he shows the cue card "OOH AND AH" which the audience does.)

Ash: Oh my...

Brock: Okay, guys...show time! (settles before the array of instruments and flicks a small lever, setting the whole apparatus into motion)

(the audience watches as Brock starts the song playing a trumpet, then plays the next line on a trombone. The third line is performed on a whistle, and the line after that gets played on a tuba. As Brock concludes the next line on a clarinet, the "conductor" turns the page and reminds Brock of his location in the music. The next section of the song is performed on a harmonica and guitar, before the machine decides to make Brock play all the aforementioned instruments at once. The audience applauds)

Ash: Talk about a one man band... (laughter)

Brock: Okay guys...let's get this show jumping! (adjusts a few more levers, increasing the tempo. Before long, a rousing dance tune begins, with instruments coming at Brock a mile a minute..but we start to see smoke rise from the eleborate device...)

Ash: Uh oh...Take cover everyone! (the audience scrambles for cover again as the machine starts to go haywire. The scene begins to swirl...)

(When we return to the present, we see Ash tossing and turning. The girls, Brock, and Pikachu are nearby, concerned.)

Misty: Ash...

Ash(in his sleep): Take cover! It's gonna blow!

May: Huh?

Brock: What's gonna blow?

Misty: ASH!!!

Ash: Huh...(glances around the theater, and breathes a sigh of relief that it's still standing.) Whew...that dream was so real! (climbs out of his chair and starts to center stage) I dreamt Brock invented a one man band machine, and played 50 instruments at once!

Brock: I did? There's no way I'd be able to do that...two instruments at once, maybe; but 50?

Ash: You did in my dream!

Brock: I don't have enough arms to handle that much! (mild laughter)

(Before Ash can start his good bye spiel, he hears a crash backstage, which sends him scrambling under the chair)

Misty: Looks like I'll say goodbye in lieu of Mr. Scardymeowth over here... (gestures to Ash quivering in fear under the chair) Thanks for coming to see us tonight, and we'll see ya next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

ANP #048: Munchin' Away....



(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music. He tries to clean the music, only to get walloped by a basketball in the face (thrown by May) Pikachu runs past all of this, down a hallway, and through a door with a star on it marked "Ash". He cries "Pika!" and points at a clock, which is ticking dangerously close to "Show Time!" Ash notices the time on the clock and ducks behind a screen to get ready, when he finishes, he's now decked out in a red top hat (with the same design as his cap) and tails. Ash then runs head on at the camera and makes a flying entrance onto a stage as the song concludes)

Female announcer: And now, it's time for the Ash and Pikachu Show!

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: Be thankful it's not time for "Watching Paint Dry" (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(applause as Ash comes onstage, eating a banana)

Ash: Thank you...(takes another bite) Tonight's show--

(Before Ash can say any more, Munchlax appears, snatches the banana from Ash's hand, and consumes it, peel and all)

Ash: (sigh) --features this little guy...(applause as Munchlax bows to the audience. May appears, piqued by the applause)

May: That was Ash's snack, you know... (carries Munchlax offstage)

Ash: He may be annoying sometimes, but you gotta admit he's cute. (mild laughter as Ash starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Destiny Deoxys" montage)

(Backstage, Munchlax rummages through the prop room, looking for and consuming anything that is edible. Misty notes this as she sets up the drawing board.)

Misty: You'd think he'd get sick every so often...

May: Not Munchlax...he'd eat a restaurant out of business if he could...

(at this, Munchlax surfaces from a pile of treats and unleashes a loud burp. Misty winces in disgust.)

Misty: At least teach him some table manners... (sighs as she goes to work)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, simulating a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Brock: Long time no see, pencil.

(the pencil draws Brock inside a kitchen, with several trays of cookies cooling on the counter. A cookie jar sits on the top of the refrigerator)

Brock: Now to put this batch in the cookie jar... (takes a tray and empties the contents into the jar)

Misty: Now the plot thickens... (the pencil draws Munchlax watching Brock make more cookies)

(a lightbulb appears over Munchlax's head. Before long, an array of stools, chairs, boxes, and other items is propped against the refrigerator.)

Brock: No, not yet... (scoops Munchlax in his arms as he nears the top of his tower.) Wait. (Munchlax slumps against a chair, dejected)

(Later, Munchlax enters the room and places a bar of soap in the path to the refrigerator, then tiptoes to the door and rings the doorbell)

Brock: I wonder who that could--(he slips on the soap) BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! (he struggles not to slip as he hurtles toward the refrigerator)

(Munchlax catches the cookie jar as it falls to the floor and helps himself to the cookies inside. Brock, however, lies dazed and swirly eyed on the floor, cookies with wings flying around his head. When we get a closer look at the cookies Munchlax is eating, some chocolate chips spell "The End".

(Munchlax eats some of May's Pokeblocks as Misty draws the last scene)

May: Not so fast, Munchlax... (suddenly, Munchlax's interest is piqued by rustling wrapping coming from onstage. Thinking the wrapping is food, he rushes onstage to find Brock blowing up a balloon. He tries to consume it, but the balloon goes inside him!)

Brock: Hmm... (he picks up the bloated Munchlax and squeezes him, making him say "uh" like a bagpipe drone. Piqued by this, Brock starts to "play" Munchlax like a set of bagpipes, much to the delight of the audience)

May: Ahem... (pops Munchlax, sending him flying around in all directions) Munchlax is not your personal bagpipe...

Brock: I know that! (grabs guitar and tunes up) THIS is my real number tonight...

(music begins)

Brock: Together, wherever we go...
In battle we learn and grow...

(Ash grabs a whistle and joins in with Brock and the band)

Brock: With courage when we're put to the test,
Desire to be the very best!
And good friends to share in
The magic journey
With the power when we need to be strong!
And comfort when the struggle is long,
We hold on to all that we know is true...

It's always only what we make it...
We see our chance and then we take it!
The road is long, so don't delay it!
To be a Pokemon master ---- we train....

Forever and everywhere we go,
We offer the best of what we know
While hand in hand we walk as one
From battles lost to battles won!
With the Pokemon we claim
In the spirit of the game
The spirit of the game....

The challenge is everywhere!
For you and me if we only dare,
To hold on to all that we know is true!

[dance break/whistle solo]

Brock: You're for me and I'm for you!
Loyal always through and through!
We know now that we all must do!
To be a Pokemon master ---we train...

Forever and everywhere we go,
We offer the best of what we know
While hand in hand we walk as one
From battles lost to battles won!
With the Pokemon we claim
In the spirit of the game!
The spirit of the game...

We try...
We aim high....
And we reach for the sky-sky high! (applause as Brock, Ash, and the band bow)

May: Here's some more Munchlax for you...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Berry, Berry, Interesting")

(We join Ash, May, Pikachu, and Munchlax on the stage)

Ash: We're almost out of time for tonight...we hope you enjoyed this little eating machine... (gestures to Munchlax)

May: He is quite a handful...

Ash: We'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye and the curtain closes, but Munchlax suddenly eats the background! "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll against a black background)

ANP #049: Advancing the Adventure


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Pikachu climbs onto Ash's shoulder and smiles as the title card flies in from the right, a short clip of "On Our Way" in the background)

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: I wanna be, the very best... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we pay tribute to our resident actress and budding coordinator....May!

(applause as May comes onstage and waves to the crowd)

May: Thank you! And thank you, Ash...getting my own show was such a nice surprise!

Misty: You do a great job acting and helping out every night, so consider it our little thank you!

Brock: You've earned it! (light applause)

Ash: So lets get things rolling with a cartoon... (wheels out the projector)

May: Oh, I know what I wanna watch! (threads in a reel and starts the projecor)

(CARTOON-"Hi Ho, Silver Wind!")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands playing a guitar. He tries to play "On Our Way", but finds out his guitar's out of tune. After tuning up, Ash tries the song again, but keeps stumbling over the song. Suddenly, a pair of live May hands turns Ash's music right side up, and Ash proceeds to play "On Our Way" without a hitch. May says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as we zoom in on the music--one of the notes is Pikachu's face!)

(May, Torchic, and Skitty smile as the reel rewinds)

May: I can't believe the Grand Festival wasn't that long ago...

Skitty: Nya! (bounds off May's lap and darts offstage)

May: Skitty! (runs offstage after Skitty. Brock watches, bemused)

Brock: Wonder why Skitty just ran off like that? (Just then, he looks to see Skitty trying to drag out the mini stage, but she obviously is struggling with it) Oh, I see!

Skitty: Nya! (hops on the stage and poses)

May: All right, Skitty, come on down...(shoos Skitty away as the cast gets ready)

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see Brock, Misty, Ash and May out in the woods on a hike. Judging from the blank look on Brock's face, they're apparently lost)

Brock: I hate to break this to you guys...but we're lost...

May: Thank you, Captain Obvious...(laughter)

Ash: Hey, look! (He points out a cabin in the distance, where Nurse Joy is tending to some flowers on the porch) We can ask Nurse Joy for directions!

(The gang rushes over to Nurse Joy)

May: Hi, Nurse Joy...we've been on the trail for 20 minutes, and we think we're lost...

Brock: Is Mt. Moon anywhere near here?

Nurse Joy: I don't think so...

Ash: How about the Saiyu River?

Nurse Joy: Not sure...

Misty: How about Pewter City?

Nurse Joy: You're way off from there...

Brock(getting desperate): Or even Cerulean Prarie?

Nurse Joy: I haven't been that far out...

May(frustrated): Then could you at least tell us where a road is?

Nurse Joy: I don't believe there's any roads here either... (everyone groans)

Ash: Then what CAN you tell us?

Nurse Joy: I can tell you that I'm not lost. (laughter as the group sighs, frustrated)

(We come up on Ash scouring the floor, looking for something. Misty walks in, concerned)

Misty: What's the matter?

Ash: I'm looking for a green ball I lost....

Misty: I'll help you! (starts looking as Brock walks in the room, interested)

Brock: What's going on?

Misty: Ash lost a green ball, so I'm helping him look.

Brock: I'll look too! (starts looking)

(After a few minutes, Ash decides to give up...)

Ash: Oh well...I can always make another green ball...

(Misty and Brock watch, aghast, as Ash does a little, er, gold digging, and rolls the resulting snot into a ball. The audience goes "Eew" as the scene fades out)

(Back on the stage, May notes the appalled looks on Misty and Brock's faces as Ash proudly shows off his "green ball" to the audience)

Misty: Ick!

Brock: Gross!

May: I'll just cue the cartoon... (tiptoes over to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Deceit and Assist!")

(We rejoin Ash, Brock, and the band onstage)

Ash: Look, I didn't mean to gross you out earlier...that was part of the joke.

Brock: Okay, just tell the writers we don't like that stuff, okay? (tunes guitar)

Ash: I'll tell'em...you go on and sing your song, okay?

Brock: I'd like to dedicate this song to everyone who has supported us in our 10 years of adventuring! (wild applause)

(music begins)

Brock: I wanna be, the very best, like no one ever was...
To catch them is my real test,
To train them is my cause!

I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide...
Each Pokemon, to understand,
The power that's inside....Pokemon!

(Gotta catch'em!)

Brock: It's you and me...I know it's my destiny!

(Pokemon!)

Brock: Oh, you're my best friend,
In a world we must defend...Pokemon!

(Gotta catch'em!)

Brock: A heart so true!
Our courage will pull us through!
You teach me, and I'll teach you!

Po-ke-mooooooooooon!!!!

(Gotta catch'em all!)

Brock: Gotta catch'em all! (Pokemon!) (wild applause as a banner that reads "Pokemon: 1996-2006" unfurls onstage, complete with red and blue confetti!)

May: I hope this is enough to follow up that act... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Rhapsody in Drew")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and May onstage)

May: Thank you again for letting me have my own show!

Ash: Our pleasure...too bad it's almost over.

(an "Aww" goes up from the crowd)

Ash: Don't fret, we'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)

ANP #050: The Pi-kademy Awards


(Cue OP-On Our Way-as the song plays, we see various shots of the Pokemon cast in the backstage area, getting ready for a show: Misty walks past one member of the lighting crew, making her trip and drop her paints, which color some of the notes on Brock's sheet music.

(Suddenly, Brock appears in the scene wearing his normal clothes and sunglasses)

Brock: And the winner is... (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash and Pikachu run onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! With tonight being the finale of Season 2....

Misty(offstage): We're halfway to 100 shows! (wild applause)

Ash: Yeah, that's true...tonight's also viewer's choice night, so to celebrate the end of the season, we let the viewers choose what they thought were the best--and the worst--of this season. (light applause) As such, Pikachu has all the winning comics, skits, songs, and hilarity right here! (gestures to the pile of envelopes in Pikachu's paws) So, let's get started with one of the winning cartoons! (wheels out the projector and threads the reel in)

Pikachu: Pika! (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Pi-Kahuna", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands placing a medallion around a girl's neck as a crowd cheers. We get a close up of the Pikachu face medallion as a female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!")

(We join the girls backstage-Misty is organizing her comics, and May is prepping the mini stage. Pikachu sits by the drawing board, bemused.)

May: So, Pikachu, which do you want to announce first? Winning comic or winning skits?

Pikachu: Pika pika chu! (opens one envelope and shows the paper, presumably the winning comic, to Misty) Pika!

Misty: So that's the winner, huh? (Pikachu nods) Here goes... (goes to work)

May: Which one are you drawing?

Misty: The one I drew when Greta came to see us. (May watches as Misty continues working)

(On Our Way interlude plays as title card appears-'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board")

(A white screen appears, presumably to simulate a blank piece of paper.)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes)

Misty(voiceover): I wonder how Brock would fare training under you? (the pencil draws a ninja outfit on Brock, then draws in a background of the Battle Arena.)

Greta(voiceover): Maybe your mystical pencil will tell us. (the pencil draws Greta facing Brock. They bow to each other.)

Misty(voiceover): Okay...first we'll start with the bamboo staff. (the pencil draws a bamboo staff in Brock's hand. He immediately starts to twirl it in various postions...but then he gets a little carried away with the twirling.)

Greta(voiceover): Now listen to me, Nincada...that's not a baton, that is a staff for battle...

Misty: I think you're a little late... (Brock flies overhead, using the spinning staff as a propellor)

(Later, Brock stands before a block of wood.)

Greta(voiceover): Now, try to break the wood with your feet.

(Brock runs up to the block of wood and tries to kick it, but the impact of the kick sends him flying...into a gong overlooking the Arena. Brock rubs his head in pain as "The End" appears in Mew characters.)

(May giggles as Misty draws the last scene)

May: Now what about the skits?

Pikachu: Pikapi chu! (opens another envelope and shows May the paper)

May: Those? (Pikachu nods) All right...

(On Our Way interlude as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May". May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name)

(We see the cast seated at a dinner table. Ash puts some salt on his food, but notices that the pepper is on the other end of the table, by Pikachu.)

Ash: Pass the pepper, sombody....

(the request goes down the line until it gets to Misty, who's next to Pikachu.)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash wants the pepper.

Pikachu: Pikachu! (hands off a bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line until it gets to Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not BLACK pepper, just pepper.

(the request goes down the line again to Misty)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash still wants the pepper.

Pikachu: Pika! (hands off another bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line again until it reaches Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not CAYENNE pepper...

(the request goes down the line again to Misty)

Misty: Pikachu, Ash still wants the pepper...

Pikachu: Pika! (hands off another bottle to Misty, where it goes down the line again until it reaches Ash. He winces at the bottle)

Ash: No, not LEMON pepper...

Misty: Then what pepper DO you want?

Ash: The toilet pepper! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)
(We see the inside of a movie studio. Brock, as the director, is looking on a set of a Western town as the others, as the actors, mill about.)

Brock: Okay, guys! Places! (everyone rushes into position. May, the cameraperson, approaches Brock)

May: Uh sir?

Brock: Not right now, May...let's get this done first. "The Legend of Sheriff Ketchum", take 1...and...action!

(guitar riff as Kamon, playing the role of the villian, saunters onto the set)

Kamon(in his best Western drawl): Whar's that no-good, bow-legged, buggy eyed sheriff?

Ash(in his best Western drawl): Ah'm right hair, Nasty Jack! And you ain't welcome in this here town!

Kamon: Draw! (draws a fake six shooter. Ash does the same and fires a cork into Kamon's stomach, making him play dead)

Brock: And, cut! Not bad, but it needs to be a little more graceful, so let's try it again... (May tugs Brock's shirt sleeve) Yes?

May: Brock, this is urgent!

Brock: Can it wait? (May slinks to her position) Okay..."The Legend of Sheriff Ketchum", take 2...and...action!

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, this time dancing like ballerinas)

Brock: (sigh) I didn't mean that kind of graceful....let's see some action this time! Take 3....

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, only the action is in fast motion)

Brock: Take 4, and slow it down!

(Ash and Kamon do the scene again, but now the action is in slow motion)

Brock: Not THAT slow... (May tugs on Brock's shirt sleeve) What is it?

May: I have something to confess...I forgot to put film in the camera this morning. (everyone groans as the scene fades out)

(Pikachu giggles as May takes down the mini stage)

May: No wonder the audience chose those...Pikachu liked them too! (watches as Pikachu hurries onstage, where Brock and the band are waiting)

Ash: So what did the viewers decide was the best song this season?

(Pikachu opens an envelope and shows the paper to Brock. Brock nods and tunes his guitar a little more, while Ash grabs a whistle)

(music begins)

Brock: Together, wherever we go...
In battle we learn and grow...

(Ash grabs a whistle and joins in with Brock and the band)

Brock: With courage when we're put to the test,
Desire to be the very best!
And good friends to share in
The magic journey

And comfort when the struggle is long,
We hold on to all that we know is true...

And we reach for the sky-sky high! (applause as Brock, Ash, and the band bow)

May: Here's the conclusion of the cartoon...(starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Pi-Kahuna", part 2)

(We join the entire cast onstage)

Ash: I can't believe it...we're halfway to 100 shows...

May: I'm hoping for 1000 shows!

Ash: We had a great time tonight...so we'll see ya next time...and next season! (wild applause as the cast waves goodbye)

Pikachu: Pika pi! (waves goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll)
