Lowell Winchell, Jr: [first lines] Good morning, good morning, good morning. That was A-Billion-And-One Strings playing one of your all-time favorite tunes. At the top of the news this morning, there's monkey business in Utah. All seriously, now. It seems that a band of renegade chimpanzees have kidnapped Pulitzer prize-winning poet Lester Charles and are demanding---
Kirby: What do you mean "what are we gonna do today"? The same thing we've done for the last 2,000 days: CHORES!
Radio: [repeated line] Listen to this.
Radio: Hang on to your hats, you devil dogs, because the master bebop blaster of all time is about to give you a soul injection!
Lowell Winchell, Jr: Sorry, for that little interruption, folks. We return to our regularly scheduled program at this time.
Lowell Winchell, Jr.: [Radio tries to pull his friends back out of the mud hole, but still gets dragged pulled down the slope] Well, that... uh... concludes our broadcast today--- uh... week... Actually, it concludes all future broadcasting of any sort. [Radio gets dragged down into the mud hole] We'll sign off now with a... suitable... tune! [Radio plays "Mammy" sung by Al Johnson to send for help while still getting dragged down into the mud hole]

Kirby: Cry, cry, weep, wail and sob! It's disgusting! Every time! I can't believe it! Every single-- Give me that stupid picture!
Blanky: No, no!
Toaster: I just put it away!
Kirby: In the garbage! [Radio and Lampy help him]
Blanky: No, you can't!
Kirby: Wimp!
Toaster: Let go!
Kirby: He's not coming back anyway.
Lampy: He might. The fact is, there's Just not enough facts.
Radio: Fight breaks out in the peaceful mountain cottage. The shocking world, and bringing Geneva Talks to a grinding halt!
Blanky : Stop it!
Kirby: Let me have it.
Blanky: You can't!
Kirby: [shocked] Oh, no.
[after the picture of Rob, their Master, crashes; Air Conditioner laughs ironically]
Toaster: What are you laughing at?
Air Conditioner: [stops laughing and smirks] Absolutely nothin', nothin' at all.
Lampy: I think he was laughin' at us.
Air Conditioner: You know somethin', you're a real bright little lamp.
Lampy: Oh, thanks. [offended] Hey!
Air Conditioner: You guys really have an attachment for that kid, don't ya?
Blanky: Yes. He was our master.
Air Conditioner: Well, that's real nice. And any day now, he might come rompin' back, huh? Just come whistlin' right back in through that door, and everything'll be the same; Real peachy-keen-like.
Blanky: Uh-huh.
Lampy: It's a possibility.
Toaster: Well, at least, we try to be optimistic.
Air Conditioner: "Optimistic"?! Somebody untie the knot in this guy's cord!
Kirby: Why don't you just shut off?!
Air Conditioner: Hey, I'm real scared there, Kirby. What are you gonna do, suck me to death?
Kirby: Hmph!
Air Conditioner: What is it with you guys, anyway? You act like you just came off the assembly line. Now, get this through your chrome; We've been dumped! Abandoned!
Blanky: But he loved us.
Radio: That's right.
Air Conditioner: So what? He's a kid; He has a family. They move away, he moves away. It's a package deal.
Toaster: But, maybe they're all--
Air Conditioner: [interrupts Toaster] He's not comin back, pure and simple.
Kirby: [to Air Conditioner] Oh, yeah? Did you talk to him recently or somethin'? They could drive up any second.
Blanky: [to Kirby] You really think so?
Kirby: [to Blanky] I'm not talkin' to you!
Air Conditioner: The whole bunch of ya gotta have a combined wattage of five, maybe less. It's been years. It's scrap-metal time.
Toaster: Well, you can do what you like. We're not gonna give up hope.
Air Conditioner: [sarcastically] That's real touchin', Toaster. You're gonna get me bawlin' like a baby any time now.
Toaster: I think you're jealous.
Air Conditioner: Sure, I'm jealous of a bunch of dimwits.
Lampy: [angrily] "Dim"?!
Toaster: Yeah. Because the Master never played with you.
Kirby: 'Cause you're stuck in the wall!
Air Conditioner: [blows cold air; angrily] So... it's back to that stupid static again. You think I don't know what's goin' on in here? I know what goes on in this cottage. It's a conspiracy, and every one of you low-watts is in on it. Just 'cause you can move around, you think you're better than I am! I'M NOT AN INVALID; I WAS DESIGNED TO STICK IN A WALL!! I LIKE BEIN' STUCK IN THIS STUPID WALL!! I can't help it if the kid was TOO SHORT TO REACH MY DIALS!!
Toaster: We didn't mean it! Really!
Air Conditioner: IT'S MY FUNCTION!!!
Toaster:' Don't! Wait! Wait!
Kirby: [alarmed] HE'S GONNA BLOW!
Kirby: THE FUSE!
[Air Conditioner explodes, and the appliances see the remains.]
Blanky: Poor Air Conditioner.
Toaster: I didn't know he'd take it so hard.
Kirby: Well, he was a jerk anyway.
Lampy: Hey, hey, what's that? What is it.
[revving is heard]
Blanky: [happily] A car!
Kirby: [angrily] I don't want to hear another word about cars!
Toaster: [agreeing with Kirby] You said it.
Radio: Sound pretty really close.
Kirby: Just don't even start it!
Lampy: Sounds real close.
[pauses for a few seconds, and when they hear the car door closing, then they’d go run away and hides, and then they hearing the hammer then go with Toaster, Radio, Lampy, and Blanky to look out at the window, and he saw the guy was building the signs is called For Sale, Blanky look terrible, Radio humming with Taps, Blanky wails and crying and falls to the floor, Lampy crying and moaning sadly]
Toaster: [yelling at Radio and Lampy] STOP IT?! [jumps on the box] We’re going out to find him?!
Radio, Lampy, Kirby, and Blanky: WHAT?!
Kirby: What are you talking about? What do you mean!
Toaster: Exactly what it I said. We’re gonna go out and find the master.
Blanky: To the city.
Toaster: Yeah, no matter what!
Lampy: Well, how would you propose we’re gonna do that exactly!
Toaster: I... I don’t know?
Kirby: Oh, come off it. Be serious.
Toaster: I am serious.
Kirby: You’re insane!
Radio: If only we were wiener dogs, our problems would be solved.
[pauses they look at each other]
Toaster: What?
Radio: Maybe it was basset hound!
Kirby: You’re all insanse!
Radio: It was a news flash I picked up yesterday about a dog. In an amazing show of lotalty and courage... a terrier name Grover traveled hundred of miles... to be reunited with his owner. The poor little critter was accidentally left behind... on a fishing trip three weeks ago. He had to find his way across the rugged mountain.. and scorching desserts in order to get home. Little Grover turned out to be one spunky pup.
Toaster: If the dog can do it, we can do it!
Blanky: But a dog has legs.
Toaster Ah, Don’t be a wet blanket.
Lampy: Actually, brains would help you know.
Kirby: Brains woudln’t help either.
Lampy: Lay off?
Radio: Yeah, Pipe down, carpet breath.
Toaster: Well, I’m going with or without you.
Kirby: I say we stay? We’ll have a new master when someone buys the cottage.
Blanky: But I don’t want any master? I want our master.
Toaster: Well, what about the rest of you!
Radio: You boys are gonna need a leader! Why alone you wouldn’t last for 5 minutes out there! I used to be a mountainteer see And together we can stand against the forces of nature.
Lampy: We're you are really a mountaineer.
Radio: Sure. Ask anybody. Ask Teddy Roosevelt. Why, we shot moose together on the Klondike.
Lampy: Wow. Well, you know, I was just thinking, you guys will need somebody bright along, too.
Toaster: Good idea.
Radio: Listen to this. World War III, the Normandy Invasion. And who's there but Lampy to light the way?
[pauses the appliances look at Kirby]
Toaster: You know, I thought it’d be good to have somebody come along, who’s really... strong.
Lampy: And loud.
Blanky: And grumpy!
Radio: And oblivious to reality.
Toaster: Well?
Kirby: I just know I’m gonna regret this.

Radio: North, by Northwest. Watch out for low-flying aircraft.
[Lampy lands on Blanky]
Blanky: OUCH!!!
Toaster: What's wrong?
Blanky: He stepped on me!
Lampy: Did not.
Blanky: Did too!
Lampy: Did not!
Blanky and Kirby: Did TOO!!
Lampy: Did NOT!!
Toaster: Hey, hey, hey. Come on. How do guys expect us to get there if you're fighting all the time?
Blanky: You mean we're not there yet?
Toaster: [calmly and smiling] No, no, not yet. [rubs Blanky's head] We got a long way to go.
Kirby: Oh, boy. You're tellin' me.

Lampy: Hey, come over here. I'm gonna---
Radio: Why, do you dare to cross foils with the greatest Saxon swordsman in the land? Haven't you the slightest idea who you're dealing with?
Lampy: Precisely. A total... idiot!
Radio: If your saber wags as loosely as your Norman tongue, you'll be run through in an instant. Defend yourself, Sir Lampy of Locksley!
[Radio continually whacks Lampy with his antenna, Blanky falls on them]
Radio: A blow for Richard! A blow for Marian! A blow for Mario, the garbage man! And for Carl, and all the boys at the delicatessen! And here's one for the guys on 5th Street! Hey! No!
Kirby: [accidentally sucks up Blanky] Oh, whoa! Oh, no, what!
Lampy: [stops the battle.] Hey, what's goin' on? What's goin' on? Who turned out the lights?
Toaster: [smiling] Good morning, everyone.
Blanky: [smiling] Good morning, Toaster.
Radio: [appearing from under Blanky] Hey, Slots.
Lampy: [appearing from under Blanky] Salutations.

Kirby: The battery's gone dead!
Radio: We're trapped here like rats! Small, little rats with no hair and one leg.
Toaster: [frantic] BLANKY?!? BLANKY?!?
Kirby: BLANKET?! BLANKET?! Where are you, you little wimp?!

Toaster: Kirby, no!
Lampy: Get the cord out of his mouth, don’t let him swallow it!
Radio: Switch him off!
Lampy: Just shorted right out.
Radio: Cracked up and snapped. He sold the farm. Poor chap.
Lampy: How does he look?
Radio: A little better then you actually. Keep it up Slots! Even carpet sweeping motion. He should come around sooner later.
Toaster: Hey, I think it's working. Kirby! Kirby, can you hear me?
Blanky: Wake up, wake up. Kirby!
Toaster: You're all right!
Toaster, Lampy, Radio and Blanky: [happily] YAY!!!
Kirby: [gutteral growl] Lay off! Just lay off!
Toaster: What's the matter?
Lampy: We were worried about you.
Radio: You gave us a real scare, pal.
Kirby: Well, there's nothing wrong with me, pal. So just back off!
Blanky: Don't be angry.
Kirby: Just keep your antennas and knobs and wires and rivets off my chrome! Who needs you guys, anyway? Gotta drag you around all the time, bunch of dead weight? I'd be better off without you!
Blanky: [hurtfully] But, Kirby--
Kirby: Especially you, you little rag. [pauses few seconds when they heard the waterfall] So, uh, how we get cross this thing, anyway?

Radio: Damn thee, thou cursed whale! From the depths of Hell, I stab at thee! [pokes Kirby]
Kirby: Climb on, you idiot!
Radio: Oh, it's you!
Kirby: Where's Toaster?
Lampy: He sank!

[the appliances stop at a clearing in a bramble patch]
Lampy: Hey, everybody! Look! A clearing!
Kirby: Great. Let's spread out the blanket and have a picnic.
Blanky: But I'm full of stickers.
Kirby: Well, my bags are full of thistles and sticks and who knows what else! Whose idea was it to come this way anyway?
Radio: Why it was the Lamp's, I tell you!
Lampy: Oh, yeah? Who's supposed to be the big-shot navigator around here, Mr. Loudmouth? Mr. Big... Loudmouth?
Kirby: Yeah.
Toaster: Where are we, anyway?
Radio: Now, look here, fellas, just give me a second, and, uh... [notices a small pebble] Oh, listen to this!
Lowell Winchell, Jr.: It's the top of the 9th, the bases are all loaded, and Pee-Wee Reese is at the plate. Here's the pitch... [Radio kicks the pebble in the air] ...and he connects! [hits the pebble with his antenna, which bounces off Toaster, Kirby, and Lampy] OH!!! And it's a triple play! [Kirby and Lampy angrily swarm around Radio]
Toaster: Knock it off, you guys! We should all settle down and try to get some sleep.
[Lampy drops rock. Next scene shifts to Lampy laying his head on a rock. He hears a sound and sees Radio drawing a dirt circle in the dirt]
Radio: [about the circle in the dirt] This is my sleeping space, see? And nobody crosses this line!
Lampy: Yeah, well you'd better not wake us up at 6:00 as usual!
Kirby: What are you complaining about? You didn't do any work today.
Radio: Yeah!
[Blanky crawls to Lampy who looks at him angrily]
Lampy: Go find your own place to sleep, ya little fuzz ball.
[Lampy falls asleep; Blanky tries going into Radio's sleeping space, but Radio stops him.]
Radio: Watch it! Hey! Hey! Hey! What, are you blind? It's a line. Aht-aht!
Kirby: [annoyed] Good night! [falls asleep]
[Blanky tries cuddling up to Toaster, but Toaster wakes up.]
Toaster: [tired, shoos Blanky away] Come on. I'm not the Master. Go snuggle somewhere else. I'm trying to get some sleep. Now go on.
[Blanky looks dejected and sleeps by himself.]

[the appliances stop at a clearing in a dark forest]
Blanky: Do we have to stop here?
Toaster: Only for a while.
Radio: Just long enough to lose our minds! We'll be cannibals in a few days, I've seen it happen!
Kirby: And you'd be the first to go, dial face.
Lampy: Hey, fellas! We can stay in here! Look! [turns on his light to reveal a scary face on a tree; the appliances gasp in horror, and hide in the bushes] W-What's the matter?
Radio: Eaten alive, the poor sap.
[Lampy turns around to the scary face]
Lampy: [scared] WHOA, WHOA, WHOA!!! [runs and joins the others in the bushes]
Radio: Oh, I thought you were a goner.
Lampy: Ah, you wish.
Toaster: You know, guys, we are gonna need some kind of shelter.
Kirby: Yeah, shelter from the likes of them.
Radio: [imitating boxer] Come on over here and say that, chrome-dome! [Lampy blows raspberries at Kirby]
Kirby: [shocked and angry] WHAT?!?
Radio: Oh, sorry about that. I meant to say "vacuous vacuum".
[Kirby angrily grumbles]
Lowell Winchell, Jr.: Alright, ladies and gentlemen, let's get ready to rumble. In the blue corner, undefeated champion, Rocko "the Radio" Ratuno. Ding! Oh, and there's the bell! They're on each other like black on a bowling ball!
[Radio and Kirby are about to fight but Toaster comes between them]
Lampy: Hey! Look!
[everyone sees that Blanky has made himself into a tent; next scene switches to the ending of "The Star-Spangled Banner."]
Lowell Winchell, Jr.: And that concludes our broadcast day. This is Lowell Winchell signing off. Good night, America and all the ships at sea. [static]
Toaster: [pats Blanky, smiling] Thanks.
Blanky: Oh, that's all right. [yawns and falls asleep]

Toaster: BLANKY?!? Blanky, where ARE you?!? [slowly] BLAAAAANKYYYYY?!?
Lampy: [weakly] Come on, Blanky! Speak UP for Pete's sake! [coughs and zaps]
Toaster: No, no, just relax. You've done enough. We'll look for him.
Lampy: I am feeling a little burned out.
Radio: Listen to this.
Lowell Winchell, Jr.: The lamp was awarded a Purple Heart today for being wounded in the line of duty. Lamps across the nation were switched off for a moment of silence in respect for his act of bravery.
Blanky: Help!

Mish-Mash: Hey, look at me! I mean, really! Barf, barf, barf! I'm a can opener, lamp, and a shaver! Oh-ho-ho-ho, God, I'm a mish-mash!

[the appliance's make it to Rob's apartment]
Lampy: A113. This is it!
Toaster: Go ahead.
[Lampy knocks the door and the appliances freeze; nothing happens]
Blanky: He's not home.
Toaster: We'll have to wait.
Radio: So, let's wait inside! Relax!
Lampy: But it's locked.
Radio: Luckily, my war-training included inter-appliance codes. I'll simply run into this inter-appliance knock, and we'll be welcomed by the native machinery. Stand aside, my meager companion! [He begins to knock the door; then, he rapidly taps the heads of Toaster, Lampy and Blanky. The door opens and Plugsy comes out] Hiya, pal.
Plugsy: [gasps; then dashes back inside and the door slams] It's them. [He and the other modern appliances whisper inaudibly. Them, the door opens again and he comes back out calmly] How do yous do? Tarry not upon our doorstop. Please, feel free to enter. All of yous.

Lampy: Boy, he sure has grown!
Radio: Look at him! What a heart-breaker!
Toaster: He graduated, too!
Kirby: Of course. He knows how to work hard.
Blanky: He's all big now. I hope he still needs us.
T.V.: Still needs you?!? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard!
Radio: Why, if it isn't Ol' Rabbit Ears!
T.V.: Why, if it isn't Ol' Loudmouth!
Blanky: Hi, T.V.!
Lampy: How are you doing?
T.V.: Oh, I've got a few more seasons left.
Toaster: The cottage just wasn't the same after they took you away.
Kirby: Yeah, it wasn't as noisy.
T.V.: Well, I see you haven't changed.
Radio: Kind of gives you a sense of security. Doesn't it?
Blanky: Where's the Master?
T.V.: Didn't anybody tell you? Boy, is he gonna be surprised when he gets back. He just left a little while ago to drive up to the co--- [Plugsy sneaks up behind him and changes his channel to Spanish news network. Radio and Lampy find Plugsy]
Lampy: Hey!
Radio: What's the idea?
Plugsy: Oh, many pardons. Was you watching that channel?

Toaster: [whispering] K-K-Kirby, what should we do!?
Kirby: I-I-I don't know.
Lampy: Hey. I got an idea.
[Elmo St. Peters Continues to try doing the operation, Toaster closes the curtains, Elmo looks up, Blanky and Kirby make spooky sounds. As Soon as Elmo sees his reflection on Toaster, Kirby laughs like a ghost, Elmo screams, runs around and runs into the pole, which knocks him out.]
Lampy: See? It worked! I told you it would work! I told ya, I told ya, I told ya, I knew, I knew, I knew! It worked!
[Megaphone imitates a siren as Refrigerator pounds the door down; then, Quadruped goes in Monster Truck. He almost starts him up, but he puts his seatbelt on first; then, he ignites Monster Truck and drives away quickly, while the broken appliances run away back to their owners and Toaster and his gang rescue Radio and went off into the city with him and a baby carriage. Elmo St. Peters wakes up and notices the shack being torn apart]
Elmo St. Peters: Whoa... Uh... [confused] Wha?
Zeke: Did I catch you at a bad time? Just wondering if you got my radio tubes.
