    .. that anvil that the BEEP-BEEP, roadrunner just threw down to you. Is all hope lost for Daffy? Not a chance, he does one of those famous cartoon mid-air Scrreeetcchhhhhh, and stops about halfway to the bottom. Uh oh, Daffy looks up and he sees that the anvil keeps going down and down, and we all know when that happens....

    Daffy crosses his arms and with a contemtuously smug look (still standing in mid-air) steps to the side...directly into the path of the anvil which, as anvils will, continues it's rapid decent. Meanwhile Donald, who is laughing uproariously at the fate that he so narrowly missed, [all together now] steps off of the tressel. Unfortunately, unlike Daffy, Donald has yet to master the art of standing on thin air. As he plummets after his counterpart, Casey yells".....

    ..."Ya got wings don't ya? Well, use them." Donald replied, "This is a carto-o-o-o-o-n-n-n, squwak, squwak, sq-u-u-u-w-w-w-a-a-a-a-k, ka-thunkkkkk, as Donald bottomed out in a plume of dust. He brushed himself off in typical cartoon fashion, then looked down at the large hole where Daffy and the anvil hit, shook his head and....

    ...shouted back up. "I have good news and bad news. The good news is that the rope and anvil are just fine. The bad news is that the tressel IS on fire and almost ready to colapse. Now get me the $^#%%^$*$ out of here!" "What about Daffy?" Someone called down. Donald replied, "Daffy is.....

    ..heading over to the studio right now, seems he heard they needed a stand-in for that AFLAC duck in the TV ads." Well,that is, once they invent TV. "But enough about Daffy, what do we do about the burning tressle?". Said the excited crowd in unision. "Ahh, said Casey, just go back to the club car and get the...

    ...selser bottles of club soda and we'll spray them down and put out the fire." Lo and behold, when they reached the club car they discovered that the Stooges had taken every last one for their skits. "Now what'll we do?" wailed everyone. "I have another idea," said Casey. Break out all of the beer bottles and we'll.....

    ...just have a tressle burning party." But a very purplexed Harold Hill responded, "Aren't you forgetting that we are sitting on top of this tressle and when it burns down there will be nothing to support this train?"

    "Nah," said Casey, "we are still close enough to Toon Town that with just one tug on that emergency cord...

    ...will bring Mighty Mouse to the rescue." Well, Casey blew the whistle,---- and nothing happened. He blew it again while starting to get a worried look on his face.------ Still nothing. Now he pulled on the cord and the whistle blew long and loud, but still no sign of our intrepid rodent. Below they could hear the railings of the tressel begin to creak and groan. Then there was a lurch sideways and Casey said, "We'd better.....

    . all get ready for one more ride...... Then, another creeeeeak..... the train edged a bit further... Then... the clouds of smoke started clearing... As the ground became clearer - it became apparent thet the fire had been put out... hanging off the trestle were 3 people dressed in yelow coats and hats... One moved a bit higher pn the trestle and said:
    "OK you lunkheads - find a way to get us outta here"!!

    The reply: "But moe - I don't think.."

    Curley: "That's right - you don't and that's what always gets us in these predicaments"!

    Everyone finally started breathing again - as they realized the Three Stooges in their fireman gear (Think MAd MAd Mad Mad World) saved the trestle and all aboard! :)

    Someone shouted - "we need more ropes!! Pull them up!!!"

    Someone else replied... " uh.. not so fast...... Look!!!!!!!!!'.........

    ...here comes the OSHA inspector, get out your certificates and licenses, we're going to have to prove that this train is trackworthy and the tracks are trainworthy and all these people hanging around are just plain worthy. Suddenly the group turned to see this guy laying on the ground, gasping for air. "The big dubau," he says. "The money is buried under the big W." That's all it took, the inspector, Casey, The Stooges, Buddy Hackett, Phil Silvers, Sid Ceasar and all the others made a mad, mad, mad, mad dash down the tracks, some still on the train, others by any means they could find. They were all heading to find the big W, Well, that was until....

    ...they realised that the big dubau was the one that lives in D.C. and that with the Secret Service no one was going to get close to him, unless they had $20,000 to donate to the campain.
    So the toons went back to Toontown, the Pinkies took the bandits off to jail, the OSHA inspector headed back to his office (after handing out tickets to everyone there for being a hazard to the world in general) and Casey went home after clocking out again. So that left.....

    Elvis & the Man in Black to run what was left of the train.. along with the President of the railroad... he called for the second shift & the enginneer & brakeman appeared..... WITH another train!! Yes, another train - a newer 2-6-2 engine. All clean as a whistle (no Pun intended) and chugging along at full power... Elvis turned to the President Megabucks & said" Now why didnt you just do that before....."

    Megabicks replied.. Did you ever try to call a crew in - in the middle of a shift?????

    Elvis & the man in black just nodded...... :) :) :)

    The president and whoever else was left - transfereed trains & pushed the old engine down the tracks... toward...............

    Never Never Land, or Memphis, whichever came first. Elvis and the Man In Black were working out a new duet that would top the charts and President Megabucks had heard that there were pirates in Never Never Land and pirates always had booty. Even if they didn't he figured that he could build a railroad so that shippers wouldn't have to worry about pirates. They were rolling merrily along when who should hop on board than.....

    ...this crotchety old parrot. "Grrrr, begorh and avast matey", said the parrot. "Geeze, I'm getting out of here, this ain't no stinkin' ship, it's a train" said Prez Megabucks. Elvis left long ago when he learned that the man in black was really Blackbeard the Pirate and couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. The engineer was expecting double time for breaking in a new engine, but since Megabucks left, there was fat chance he'd get paid at all, so he bailed out around Pittsburg leaving the train in the capable hands of....

    ...Blackbeard and the parrot. "I knows how to sail a schooner," said Blackbeard. "Stearing this iron frigate can't be that hard. Now, where's the rudder and how do you raise the sails on this tub?" By sheer luck he got the train moving, unaware that.....

    ...ordered the train hard to port. "Huh?", said Harold Hill. "Heck, we know what he's talking about," said the Stooges as they headed to the club car to find that bottle of wine. Undaunted, when all they could find was a chardonny, they headed to the nearest liquor store to restock the bar. "Avast ye landlubbers, prepare to fire," were the orders from Blackbead, as they continued down the track ready to crash into the BART car and board her for the usual pillage and plundering. But remember, this is Toon Town and...

    ...anything can happen, and usually does. Blackbeard had bent the smoke stack forward and converted it into a makeshift cannon. Just before they reached the BART car Blackbeard yelled "Fire!" and sent a cannonball whizzing down the track. This being Toon Town the BART car's trucks stretched and bowed so that the car was 30 feet above the tracks, allowing the cannonball and Blackbeard's train to pass neatly underneath it. Unfortunately the cannonball.....
