ANP #076: Peace and Good Quil



(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: We're on fire 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, and welcome to the first show of Season 4! (wild applause) We've got the usual fare of cartoons, comics, and songs--plus a few new surprises! But before we get started, let's see how Brock is doing with singing the dictionary...

(We cut to another theater, in which Brock is in front of the dictionary singing the B's)

Brock: ...Blast and bathyscaph, blender and bed... (As Brock continues to rattle off words, we see May in the other auditorium with a commentator's headset on)

May: Ash, Brock is going at a nice pace through the B's but he still has a ways to go before he completes the letter...we can only hope that he keeps up this enthusiasm through the remaining 24 letters...back to you.

(We return to Ash in the main theater)

Ash: All right, thank you, May...tonight we're gonna focus on the firebrand of the Johto starters, Cyndaquil! (applause as the spotlight appears on a Cyndaquil. Dawn enters, piqued by the fire mouse Pokemon next to Ash)

Dawn: Who's this? (reaches down to pet the Cyndaquil, but he extends his quills, burning her) YEOW!!!

Ash: I don't think you should pet him that way...(flips open Dexette and lets Kari listen)

Dexette: Cyndaquil, the fire mouse Pokemon. He flares flames from his back to protect himself, which burn vigorously if he is angry...

Dawn: NOW you tell me... (laughter)

Dexette: When tired, he sputters with incomplete combustion. (Sure enough, we see Cyndaquil breathing hard, sputtering all the while)

Dawn: Maybe he'd like to watch something? (wheels out the projector)

Ash: Good idea! (threads a reel in the projector and starts it.)

(CARTOON-"Good 'Quil Hunting", part 1)

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands trying to start a campfire. After a few unsuccessful attempts, a Cyndaquil appears and uses its quills to get the fire going. The female announcer says "'The Ash and Pikachu Show' will be right back after these messages." as Ash picks up a guitar and starts to play "On Our Way" for the Cyndaquil. One of the marshmallows by the Cyndaquil is Pikachu's face.)

(We see the claymation Ash hands again, this time struggling to make a smore. First the crackers fall, then the chocolate slips out, the Ash loses his marshmallow in the grass. The female announcer says "We now return to 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the Cyndaquil offers Ash its smore. As we watch Ash take a bite, we notice that the dotted lines on the top cracker make Pikachu's face.)

(We rejoin Ash and Dawn back in the theater as the screen shows Ash and Pikachu running from a rock, then flashes white, indicating that the film ran out)

Cyndaquil: Cynda?

Ash: You want to know what happens next?

Dawn: I asked the people out there what THEY think happens next!

(On Our Way interlude plays as a group of voices say "What Happens Next?" in sync with the words appearing. Dawn's face appears in the dot on the question mark)

(We join Dawn before the projector at a video screen)

Dawn: Now, if you were watching the cartoon earlier, you know that this was the last scene shown before the film ran out...

(we see the scene of Ash and Pikachu running from the rock again)

Dawn: Now, I suppose you're wondering...

Random voices: What Happens Next? (the title card reappears, minus Dawn's face in the question mark)

Dawn: To find out, I asked 50 people on the street what they think happens next based on that scene alone...and here's some of what they said: (turns toward the screen, which shows a blonde haired boy)

Random boy: They're gonna get squished by the rock...

Random woman: Ash and Pikachu are gonna narrowly miss being squashed...

Random man: Ash'll find something to pull him and Pikachu somewhere safe...

Random girls: Pikachu will shatter the rock into a zillion pieces! (the audience laughs)

Random boy: They'll just barely miss getting flattened...

Random man: They'll just barely make it...

Random boy: They'll make it by the skins of their teeth! (at this point, the film ends.)

Dawn: The general consensus is that they'll just barely make it, but stay tuned for the next part of the cartoon, when we find out...

Random voices: What Happens Next? (the title reappears again)

(We rejoin Ash in the theater, where he has the reel for the next cartoon.)

Ash: Thanks, Dawn...let's see what happens next right now! (threads the reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Good Quil Hunting", part 2)

(We rejoin Dawn and Ash in the theater. Dawn has her own acoustic guitar with her, which she tunes as she waits on the band to finish tuning)

Ash: So, you're gonna sing, huh?

Dawn: Well, our resident singer's busy, so I'll fill in for the time being! (applause) This song's called "On the Wind of the Aurora"

(music begins)

Dawn: What a beautiful day! Sun is shining bright! (is shining bright!)
I'm so happy, I almost have to cry!

Was I here before? Is this deja vu? (Is this deja vu?)
No matter now, we will shine on beneath this crystal clear blue sky!

Though I have a dream, it is brand new,
(Let's stay together forever!)
We will find our place, within the world!

On the wind of the aurora, my wish will come flying right to you!
I'm sure it will make it there, but I still want to see you before then!
Underneath a star spangled sky, our two lives long to be together,
And when they unite as one, the same wish that we have will come true!

I wonder why, we follow a path (follow a path)
That often leads, to two quite different fates?

On the map of life, I have lost my way (have lost my way)
And even now, my life's journey, it has only just begun!

Where can I turn? In the dark, I cry
(Let's kiss, make me happier!)
I will give a shout of joy for you!

On the sparkling deep blue sea, my faith will sleep there, waiting just for you
And on a light purple wind, you'll hear a love song I wrote for you!
On the night of a bright full moon, our two hearts sing that song together!
Even if it's just emotion, I won't forget these special feelings!

[dance break-we see Ash, Misty, May, Pikachu, and the Cyndaquil grooving to the song]

Dawn: Though I have a dream, it is brand new,
(Let's stay together forever!)
We will find our place, within the world!

On the wind of the aurora, my wish will come flying right to you!
I'm sure it will make it there, but I still want to see you before then!
Underneath a star spangled sky, our two lives long to be together,
And when they unite as one, the same wish that we have will come true!
On the wind of the aurora, my wish will come flying right to you!

I'm sure that when we're apart, inside your heart you always say thank you
So we can grow up and live, and put our lives on two different journeys
But I will never forget
The people that I love and cherish forever!

(the audience cheers as the music winds down and finishes. Dawn bows at the song's conclusion)

Dawn: Thank you!

Misty: Amazing!

Ash: Maybe she'd be interested in a duet with Brock sometime...

May: Or dueling guitars... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Good Quil Hunting", part 3)

(We join the cast onstage)

Ash: Well, guys...the race is on to the hundredth show!

Misty: I can't wait!

Ash: 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)

All right Season 4 has begun. Brock's still going at that dictionary, all right. What Happens Next looks like it will be an interesting segment, looking foward to seeing What Happens Next with that segment.(sorry couldn't resist the pun) The Kari/Brock dueling gutair idea sounds like it will be interesting.

ANP #077: Perap Wanna Cracker?



(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: You were expecting me to squawk and whistle, weren't you? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades)

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

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we're featuring a very special comedy team--one whose ability to make people laugh is beyond compare...but the Pokemon half of the duo is the real star of the show at every venue they play at....I speak, of course, of a very talented Perap named Coco.

(Applause as a Perap trots onstage and bows to the audience)

Ash: Hi, Coco...remember me? (he kneels down and prepares to pet Coco...but Coco bites his finger!) YEOOOOOWWWW!!!! (dances around in pain)

Coco(imitating Brock singing): Come on now, la-la-la, it is so wonderful, la-la-la la la la, hear the word's beautiful sound! La la la, and it is la la la, and it is... MY LOVELY ONE!

(Ash scratches his head, confused as Coco continues dancing in circles around him and singing in Brock's voice)

Ash: Wait a second, isn't Brock still singing the dictionary?

Coco(imitating Ash): Wait a second, isn't Brock still singing the dictionary? (she whistles, making some in the audience laugh)

Ash: I didn't ask you, Coco!

Coco: Then who did you ask? (laughter as Ash ponders how to explain to the Perap before him that she was not the recipient of his question)

Ash: I asked the people out there! (gestures to the audience)

Coco: How should they know? (whistles again)

Ash: Errrrgh....

Coco(imitating Ash): Errrgh... (the audience laughs again.)

(Meanwhile, in another theater, Brock rests before the dictionary as it flips to the first page of the C's)

May: Ash, in case you were curious on how Brock is doing on singing every word in the dictionary, he has just completed the B's and planned on starting the C's after taking a break, but when he heard that Andi and her Perap Coco were tonight's guests, he'll start on the C's at a later time. Back to you.

(We rejoin Ash, Coco, and a brown haired girl, Andi, back in the main theater. Coco is trying to escape her master's arms, but is not doing a very good job of it)

Andi: What was that all about?

Ash: Oh, Brock just out of the blue decided he was going to see if he could sing every word in the dictionary.

Coco: Why?

Ash: So he can brag to his friends that he sang every word in the dictionary.

Coco: Why?

Ash: So his friends will feel compelled to try and sing every word in the dictionary.

Coco: Why?

Ash(getting annoyed): So his friends can say they sang every word in the dictionary too....

Coco: Why?

Ash: BECAUSE HE CAN! (laughter and applause as Ash trudges over to the projector, where Misty is waiting)

Misty: Boy, when you told me Coco was a real character, you weren't kidding!

Ash: What's happened so far isn't even the half of it... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"Perap-idfire Dialogue!", part 1]

(We see a pair of live Ash hands offering a cracker to a Perap in a cage. The Perap says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!", squawks, then takes the cracker from Ash. One of the toys in the Perap's cage is a rubber Pikachu)

(We return to see the live Ash hands chasing after Coco as she flies away from him, making him crash into a bookshelf. The female announcer says "And now, back to our show" as books rain onto Ash. One of the books is open at a page depicting Pikachu's face)

(Back in the theater, Andi and Coco watch as Misty preps the drawing board. Coco, meanwhile, is interested in Misty's pencils, so she snatches one in her beak when Misty isn't looking.)

Andi: Coco, that's not for you... (takes the pencil)

Misty: She can chew on this Leppa branch I've been saving... (Coco accepts the branch from Misty, chewing on it all the while as Misty goes to work)

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

(A white screen appears)

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

Brock: Okay, pencil...what do you have in store for me tonight?

Coco(voiceover): SPLUT!!! (laughs)

Brock: I didn't ask y- (a pie comes out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT! Coco laughs as Brock cleans the pie off) Okay, pencil...let me tell the story for once.

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

Brock: Okay, I'm in this place...

(Coco draws a line behind Brock as a background)

Brock: Not much of a place...

Misty(voiceover): Specifics, please. (some rustling is heard as Misty wrests the pencil away from Coco)

Brock: Okay, I'm in a cave? (the pencil draws a cave, then starts to erase Brock!) Hey! Stop erasing me!

Misty(voiceover): Calm down and let me dress you accordingly. (the pencil redraws Brock in an Indiana Jones style outfit, only now Brock clearly looks like he was made out of paper compared to the backdrop) Okay, so we're in a cave...

Brock: And I'm looking for treasure... (a badly animated treasure chest comes down with a choir "ah" for a few seconds, the disappears.) Only problem is, it's guarded by a Tyranitar. (a paper Tyranitar appears for a few seconds and roars)

Misty(voiceover): Sounds good to me. (the scene suddenly turns pixellated, then reappears looking like something out of an NES game)

Brock: Why is the scene looking different every few seconds?

Misty(voiceover): I'm drawing on my computer so Coco won't eat my pencils...I'm just trying out the different styles to see how they look. (a line of 8-bit hearts appears in the top right corner of the scene, as well as windows for A and B buttons. Brock's whip appears in the A button slot)

(The Zelda underworld theme plays as 8-bit Brock explores the cave. After defeating the 8-bit Tyranitar, he finds the treasure and holds an 8-bit ruby over his head, Link style, as the words "Stage Clear!" appear on the screen)

(We see Misty testing her game as Ash pets Coco.)

Ash: How's that hack of Zelda going?

Misty: I just finished the first stage...is Brock really gonna sing tonight?

Ash: That's what he said...(suddenly hears an intro of soft music and waves)

(Onstage, the music picks up into a samba beat. The audience laughs as Brock appears in his Mexican attire, Coco by his side)

Brock: La-la-la, la la la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, la la la, letters of love and joy!
La-la-la, and it is, la-la-la,
And it is...

Coco(imitating Brock's voice): OH! MY LOVELY ONE!!! (the audience laughs)

Brock: Oh yes, I understand...
I fall in love so easily...
My heart has been broken...
Too many times to see...
Yet there is, too little space
For me...to get back up again!

And even if they think of me...
As someone much too carefree...
And even if they make fun of me...
Laughing at my foolish deeds...
Follow the dream, just for me...
Follow the dream, just for me...
Follow the dream, just for me...
My dream is alive!

Come on now, la-la-la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, la la la, hear a word's beautiful sound!
La-la-la, and it is, la-la-la,
And it is...

Coco(imitating Brock's voice): My lovely one... (the audience laughs again)

[dance break/guitar solo]

Brock: Oh yes, many times I've learned...
The game of love is filled with pain...
My heart has been broken...
It's often aching...
And so, all I can do
Is laugh, to lift my spirit! (Coco imitates Brock laughing, making the audience laugh)

And even if they think of me...
As someone prone to make mistakes...
Even if they're laughing at me...
Laughing, calling me a clown...
Follow the dream, just for me...
Follow the dream, just for me...
Follow the dream, just for me...
My dream is alive!

Come on now, la-la-la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, la la la, hear a word's beautiful sound!
La-la-la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, my life of paradise!
La-la-la, and it is, la-la-la,
And it is...

Coco(imitating Brock's voice): MY LOVELY ONE!!!

Brock: Come on now, la-la-la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, la la la, hear a word's beautiful sound!
La-la-la, it is so wonderful!
La-la-la, my life of paradise!
La-la-la, and it is, la-la-la,
And it is...

Coco(imitating Brock's voice): MY LOVELY ONE!!!

Brock: OH! (poses as the audience laughs and applauds. Brock and Coco bow as Dawn joins Ash backstage)

Dawn: What was all that "La la la"-ing about?

Ash: Oh, just some stupid song Brock likes to act silly on... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Perap-idfire Dialogue!", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Coco onstage)

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

Coco(imitating Ash): But join us tomorrow at the same Pokemon time, same Pokemon Channel! (the audience laughs as Ash sighs, embarrassed that Coco stole his spiel)

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

I'm hoping to stretch it out over the whole season to let Kari sing more...but I do have a duet and a "dueling guitars" match planned.

As for the Ojamajo Doremi show, I'm going to need help writing that, since I haven't seen too many episodes of that...but Misty, May, and Kari become honorary witchlings! (Think "Pretty Witchi Misty-chi!", "Pretty Witchi May-chi! and "Pretty Witchy Kari-chi!"

Today's show is a Pac Man theme...and Brock gets to sing the famed "Pac Man Fever" song

FlamingRuby
9th August 2006, 10:11 PM
ANP #078: Poke-Man Fever




(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: Have you got the fever? (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...let's have a little pop quiz! (the audience groans) No, not THAT kind of pop quiz! This one's fun, I promise! (some curious murmurs fill the air) What game would I be playing if you heard this little number somewhere in the arcade?

(Ash presses a button on the console containing his mike, causing the familar Pac-Man jingle to play. Suddenly, the drummer starts a rock beat, surprising Ash!)

Ash: Huh?

(Brock and the rest of the band join in with the drummer)

Brock: I got a pocketful of quarters, and I'm headed to the arcade....

(Before Brock can sing any more of the song, the cane appears and yanks Brock offstage as a record scrape is heard. Misty appears carrying a box of reels, only pausing to stick her pencil behind her ear)

Misty: He wasn't supposed to tell the audience the answer....

Ash: I thought he was still singing the dictionary...

(we cut to May in the other theater, where the dictionary is open to a page of the C's)

May: Ash, Brock has successfully began the C's, but when he heard what tonight's theme was, he decided he really wanted to sing, and will continue the C's later. Back to you.

Ash: Thanks, May... (to the audience) Have you guys figured out what tonight's theme is yet?

(Murmurs of "Pac-Man" fill the air, just as the NES Pac-Man title screen blips on the screen behind Ash and begins its demo loop. Ash, however, is interested in the box of reels)

Ash: What are those?

Misty: I was digging through the vault and found we had a huge stash of 80's and 90's cartoons in there...and we just so happen to have some Pac-Man cartoons! (Dawn comes onstage, interested.)

Dawn: There was really a Pac-Man cartoon?

Misty: There sure was! (gets a reel out)

Dawn: Cool! Can we watch them?

Ash: I don't see why not...

Misty: Not with Pikachu using the NES, we can't!

(we hear the familiar "wakka-wakka" noise as Pikachu manuvers Pac-Man through the maze. The screen displays Pikachu's progress through the level....until Ash switches the NES off, causing the screen to turn to static, which also is on the TV the NES is connected to. Pikachu is not pleased with having his game interrupted.)

Pikachu: Pika pika chu!

Ash: I know you were using the screen first, but can we borrow it for a little bit? (Pikachu sulks as Dawn threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"Super Ghosts", part 1]

(We see a pair of live Ash hands playing Pac-Man at an arcade. The female announcer says "'The Ash and Pikachu Show' will return after these messages!" as Ash weaves his way through the maze and approaches a power pill. The prize, istead of a cherry, is a Pikachu face!)

(When we return to the game, Ash grabs the power pellet and proceeds to chase the ghosts as the female announcer says "And now, back to our show!". Ash manuvers Pac-Man towards the Pikachu face, which is worth, not surprisingly, 2500 points)

(Pikachu laughs profusely as the reel rewinds)

Misty: Oddly enough...I remember that show from when I was little...Lilly used to beg me to watch it. (she starts backstage and settles before her PC, which has a drawing tablet and an art program open. Pikachu climbs on the desk to watch.)

(On Our Way interlude plays as we see the title: "'Back to the Drawing Board' with Misty". Misty's face appears in the o in "Board"

(We see a white screen, presumably the computer screen)

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Pikachu(voiceover: Pika pika?

Misty(voiceover): Hmm...he does look too realistic for the game I'm gonna make...(erases Brock and starts drawing him again...when we see him again, he looks like something out of an NES game)

(8 bit Brock glances around as the pencil draws a maze around him, followed by four Haunters trapped in the center of the maze)

Pikachu(voiceover): Pika! (small yellow dots start appearing in the maze)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, Pikachu; you can put the dots in... (makes four dots in the corner larger, then makes them flash) There...I think I'll call it...."Brock-Man" (the aforementioned title appears at the top of the screen in a Pac-Man-esque font)

Pikachu(voiceover): Chupi! Pikachu!

Misty(voiceover): Okay, you can beta test it too!

(The words "PLAYER 1 READY!" appear, and 8-bit Brock starts moving around the maze while the Haunters chase after him. The words "THE END" appear by Pikachu's score.)

(Back in the theater, Ash returns to the stage eating the last of a candy bar. He deposits it in a trashcan...and then notes a Pac-Man machine onstage)

Ash: Hey, how'd this get here? (sticks a quarter in and begins a game, making the familiar Pac-Man jingle play in the theater again. The drummer starts a rock beat as the scene of Ash playing fades out to show Brock walking down a street, making the game noises fade out as the other instruments join in)

Brock: I got a pocketful of quarters, and I'm headed to the arcade! (we watch as Brock enters a building that reads "Pallet Game Center")
I don't have a lot of money, but I'm bringing everything I've made! (Brock plops a pile of quarters in a bucket, which he sets by the Pac-Man machine)
I got a callous on my finger and my shoulder's hurtin', too! (we see Brock's index finger, which has a Band-Aid on the aforementioned callous)
I'm gonna eat'em all up, just as soon as they turn blue! (we see Brock's Pac-Man grab a power pill, making the ghosts turn blue)

'Cause I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
It's drivin' me crazy! (drivin' me crazy!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
I'm goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
Goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)

(Meanwhile, Ash has grabbed a power pill as well. Misty notes a Ms. Pac Man machine as she comes onstage, and opts to play...)

Brock: I got all the items down, up until the ninth key... (we look at how Brock is doing and see that he is up to the ninth key)
I got Pinky on my tail, and I know it's either him or me! (Brock shakes off Pinky by ducking into a tunnel)
So I'm headin' out the back door, and in the other side... (Brock's Pac-Man appears on the other side of the maze)
Gonna eat the cherries up and take'em all for a ride! (Brock's Pac-Man grabs a cherry)

I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
It's drivin' me crazy! (drivin' me crazy!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
I'm goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
Goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)

(Back in the theater, Ash grits his teeth as his Pac-Man dies)

Brock: I'm gonna fake to the left and move to the right, (Brock dances as he sings this line)
Cause Clyde is too slow, and Pinky's outta sight!

(Clyde and Pinky appear with Brock as his joystick becomes an acoustic guitar, which he solos on. Ash and Misty are grooving with Blinky, Inky, and Sue in the theater)

Brock: Now I've got'em on the run and I'm looking for the high score! (we see Brock's score, which is steadily climbing)
So it's once around the block, and I slide back out the side door! (Brock shakes off Inky this way)
I'm really cookin' now, eatin' everything in sight! (We see scenes of the maze, with the levels getting higher and higher)
All my cash is gone, so I'll come back tomorrow night! (sure enough, Brock's bucket of quarters is empty)

'Cause I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
It's drivin' me crazy! (drivin' me crazy!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
I'm goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)
I got Pac-Man Fever! (Pac-Man Fever!)
Goin' outta my mind! (goin' outta my mind!)

(Brock and the band continue to sing the chorus as the scene fades to the theater, where Ash and Misty are still playing their respective games. Pikachu threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"Super Ghosts", part 2]

(We join Ash and Misty in the theater, where their respective machines are looping their demo loops)

Misty: This is fun...say goodbye so we can play in peace!

Ash: Okay... (he sticks another quarter in as the drummer resumes his beat) We had fun tonight, so we'll see ya next time! (begins playing)

(Pikachu just waves goodbye as the curtain closes. Brock and the band continue singing the chorus to "Pac-Man Fever" as the credits roll.)

Very nicely done, I completely forgot that there was at one time a Pac-Man cartoon. I have wasted about ten bucks in one day on a Pac-Man machine, that game was fun. I really enjoyed this episode, maybe it was the nostalgia, or maybe it was it be well written, or most likely it was both.

ANP #079: Pokemon Doremi



(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: What does all that "Pirika pirilala" stuff mean, anyway? (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! I want to start tonight's show by asking you guys a question: What do you usually picture when you think of a witch?

(the audience murmurs for a moment)

Ash: Do you picture something like this? (an organ hit plays as a picture of a typical scary looking witch unfurls. Pikachu runs behind a chair, afraid of the picture) Well, tonight we're gonna blow that stereotype out of the water (the picture rolls up) by introducing you to three of the cutest--and--prettiest--witches you'll ever meet.

(Pikachu peeks out from behind the chair, right as he spots Misty punching in some numbers into the Transporter. From his position behind the chair, we can't hear the Transporter speaking, but we do see a bright flash of light from the Transporter's location. Pikachu climbs on the chair, where he sees three girls talking to Ash.)

Pikachu: Pika?

Misty: Those three are the stars of your favorite show, Magical Doremi, Pikachu...Dorie; (points out a girl with large magenta odangoes) Renee; (points out a brown haired girl with glasses and Mirabelle. (points out the blue haired girl talking to Ash)

Pikachu: Pika! (he grabs and autograph book and a pencil) Chupichu! (he frantically waves to get Mirabelle's attention)

Ash: I think Pikachu wants your autographs, girls...but first, why don't you show the audience how you three become your witchling selves?

Dorie: Sure thing! (she hits the button in the middle of a white compact surrounded by rainbow musical notes and claps twice, making magenta gloves appear on her hands. Tapping the device to her feet makes a pair of magenta elf-like boots appear. Clapping over her head makes a pink dress-like outfit appear, which Dorie comfortably slips into, and tapping the device on her head makes a pink hat appear, completing the look.) Pretty witchi Dorie-chi! (the audience laughs and applauds at Dorie's cute pose)

Misty: That's cute...

(Before Renee and Mirabelle can transform themselves, Brock suddenly appears on the stage next to Ash, clapping and stomping as he sings in really fast gibberish to the tune of "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain"...for about three seconds before the cane yanks him offstage)

Mirabelle: What was that all about?

Ash: Don't ask...

Mirabelle: Okay then, I'm not gonna ask. (Misty watches with Dorie from the wings as Renee and Mirabelle transform)

Misty(to Dorie): Conjure up a cane next time Brock tries to interrupt the show. (Dorie nods and claps twice, summoning a magic wand)

(The audience applauds as Renee and Mirabelle, now in witchling attire like Dorie's, pose for the audience. Renee's outfit is orange, and Mirabelle's is blue)

Ash: Aren't they-- (Ash is interrupted by Brock singing in gibberish again. He sighs as Brock cavorts across the stage)

Misty(whispering): Now, Dorie... (Dorie nods and aims her wand at Brock.)

Dorie: Pirika pirilala poporina peperuto...magical cane!

(as if on cue, a cane appears and yanks Brock offstage)

Ash: Thanks Dorie...whatever all that "pirika pirilala" stuff was...(mild laughter as Ash trudges to the projector) We've prepared this footage of our meeting with one of our local witchlings... (starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"Hocus Pokemon", part 1]

(We see a pair of live Ash hands holding a wand identical to Dorie's, Ash says "Pikachu pirouette..." but Dorie interrupts by saying "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'...and that's 'Pirika pirilala', Ash..." Ash sighs as we look closer at his wand...one of the engravings is a Pikachu face!)

(We see Ash with his wand again...but when he says "Pikachu...", he really does conjure a Pikachu! He snuggles with the Pikachu as Renee says "And now, back to the show!")

(We rejoin Ash, Dawn, and witchlings back in the theater. Dorie quickly recognizes the image of Lily on the screen)

Dorie: Oh, I know who that is!

Mirabelle: Yeah, Lily's well known in these parts...we learned about her, too! (the screen flashes white as Mirabelle is talking, right before we see what Lilly turned Ash into. Dorie is not pleased by the film running out)

Dorie: No fair! I wanted to see what Ash turned into!

Dawn: Well, why don't we ask them? (gestures to the audience)

(On Our Way interlude plays as a group of voices say "What Happens Next?" in sync with the words appearing. Dawn's face appears in the dot on the question mark)

(We join Dawn before the projector at a video screen)

Dawn: Now, if you were watching the cartoon earlier, you know that this was the last scene shown before the film ran out...

(We see Lilly casting the spell, but we don't see what Ash turned into)

Dawn: Now, I suppose you're wondering...

Random voices: What Happens Next? (the title card reappears, minus Dawn's face in the question mark)

Dawn: To find out, I asked 50 people on the street what they think happens next based on that scene alone...and here's some of what they said: (cues the video, which makes a random girl appear on the screen)

Random girl: I think he turned into a Squirtle...

Random man: Judging from his firey presonality, he probably turned into a Charmander!

Random boy: Nah, a Bulbasaur's more like it!

Random woman: He might have become a Meowth! (the footage ends here. Ash turns to the girls)

Ash: What do you want to guess Lilly turned me into?

Dorie: I think she turned you into...a Growlithe!

Mirabelle: Nah, you became a Pikachu!

(Renee is about to answer when suddenly, a tuba blast comes out of nowhere. A quick glance at stage right reveals Brock is playing the aforementioned tuba. Dawn just covers her ears, annoyed by the noise.)

Renee: I'll escort him off this time...(she brandishes a wand identical to Dorie's) Paipai ponpoi puwapuwa puu...magical cane! (as if on cue, the cane appears and yanks Brock offstage, tuba and all.)

Mirabelle: Next time Brock interrupts us, can I yank him off with the cane? (laughter)

Ash: Sure...he's in a weird mood tonight...

(no sooner does Ash say that, do the lights come up on the dictionary, which is now open to a page of the C's)

Brock: Carrot and carol, crush and corral, and then cats and then sweet caramel...conjure, then conceited, concur and caveated, cavort and then one carnival!...

Dawn(over Brock's singing): Speaking of carnivals...here's a song for you three...

(music begins)

Dawn: My heart is racing, don don!
What am I to do with this power inside me? (what to do?)
Surprising, surprising, bin bin!
Everything would be so wonderful, oh wouldn't it? (sure it would!)

Every day, it would dawn just like a Sunday!
Going to school would feel like you're in a theme park!
We'll throw away all of this homework, send it straight into the trash!

Even when I have to read,
I don't have to write a thing!

Kittens will listen to me,
But they'd look the other way...

But is it truly even possible,
To do all that, you know?

Everybody give a shout! Say Pirikapiri Lala!
Come on, sing with all your heart and have some fun!

Father, mother, teacher, and even all the old men say
Be quiet! And then their faces are lava red!

Come proclaim it to the world! Pirikapiri Lala!
Come with me, and we'll fly around like we've gone nuts!

I got 3 points on my test, but perfect just for my smile!
Oh, my heart, feel how it trembles,

We'll go on and on!
Singing forever!
We'll go on and on! (applause as Dawn and the band bow)

Renee: Bravo!

Dorie: Encore!

Mirabelle: Great song...(notices Brock is still singing words) Can I yank him offstage yet?

Ash: Go ahead!

Mirabelle: Okay! One cane to yank with coming up! (summons a wand similar to Dorie's and Renee's) Pumelaku, lelaku, panipuri poppu! Magical cane!

(as if on cue, a cane appears and yanks Brock offstage.)

Ash: Now that each of you have had a turn yanking Brock offstage...let's find out...

Random voices: What Happens Next? (Ash just starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"Hocus Pokemon!", part 2]

(We join Ash in the theater as the Transporter's portal closes)

Ash: Wasn't it fun having your three favorite witchlings on the show, Pikachu?

Pikachu: Pika! (proudly shows Dorie's, Renee's, and Mirabelle's signatures to the audience)

Ash: We're about out of time, so we'll see ya next time! (waves goodbye)

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

ANP #080: I Am the Voice...



(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: You are the voice...of what? (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 feature the Pokemon that's said to guard all forests...so please join me in welcoming the Voice of the Forest, Celebi!

(the audience applauds as a spotlight appears at stage right, but nobody enters. Ash scratches his head for a moment, bewildered, until a small green finger pokes him on the shoulder and points upwards. Ash looks up to see Celebi looking down at him while reclining on the lights)

Ash: Oh, there you are... (motions Celebi to come down, to some applause)

(Suddenly, some arguing is heard, piquing Celebi's interest)

Celebi: Bi?

Ash: I dunno, let's go see... (is about to start offstage when Misty appears from the wings) What's going on?

Misty: Brock got bored with singing the dictionary...

(Misty is interrupted by wild applause)

Misty: Anyway, Brock got bored with singing the dictionary, and now he's arguing with Dawn about who's the better musician...

Ash: I see... (Celebi motions for Ash to come closer) Hm? (listens as Celebi whispers something in his ear) Good idea!

Misty: What?

Ash: Celebi says to have a contest...he calls it...

(a lightning bolt streaks across the screen)

Ash(voiceover with an echo-y effect): Musical Duel! (the words fade in over the lightning as dramatic music plays)

(we hear a record scrape as we quickly return to the theater)

Misty: Nice echo....

Ash: Thanks...as I was saying, it's time for a...

(another lightning bolt streaks across the screen)

Ash(echo-y voiceover): Musical Duel! (the words appear over the lightning when Ash says them, complete with dramatic music in the background)

(we return to the theater, where we see that the lights have dimmed. Brock is on the left side of the stage, while Dawn is on the right. May stands in the center, holding a sparkly flag in each hand)

Ash(voiceover): The rules of the duel are simple: the two competitors will be given an instrument, which they have to play...but the key to winning is more than just getting a note...we want the competitors to actually perform a bit of a song...and whoever can do so, wins! Representing the Ruby side...Brock Harrison... (a red spotlight appears on Brock, with an image of Groudon superimposed behind him) And representing the Sapphire side....Dawn Shinjuno... (a blue spotlight appears on Dawn, with an image of Kyorge superimposed behind her) These two will duel...but what instrument will they duel with?

(we see a scene of a Pokeflute)

Ash(voiceover): How bout a Pokeflute? (a spotlight appears on the aforementioned Pokeflute)

(we return to the theater to see Brock and Dawn toying with Pokeflutes)

Ash(voiceover): Both sides have the instrument now...let's first see how Ruby fares first.

(We see a countdown blip "3...2...1..." as Brock readies his Pokeflute and blows into it, getting a low D, which spurs him to play a few bars of Gary's theme)

Ash(voiceover): Now let's see how Sapphire does...

(Dawn readies her instrument as the coundown blips "3...2...1..."...but when she blows into it, all she gets is a high pitched squawk! She giggles nervously)

Ash(voiceover): This match's winner is...(a drumroll is heard before May raises the sparkly red flag) RUBY!!! (Brock takes a bow for the audience as the stage brightens again)

Dawn: You win for now, but we'll rematch next show! (heads offstage)

Brock: You're on! (heads offstage)

Ash(to Celebi): I think your contest worked well... (Celebi giggles, flies to the projector, and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Voice of the Forest!" montage)

(We see a pair of animated Ash hands sketching a forest. When he looks up from his sketch, we see Celebi looking at him from a rock, curious about his drawing. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'! as Celebi flies off, leaving behind a trail of flower petals that form a Pikachu face)

(We see scenes of a forest as Celebi flies through it, including making some ripples on a pond as the announcer says "And now, back to 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" One of the ripples is Pikachu's face)

(We rejoin Ash and Celebi in the theater...Ash has another reel in his hands)

Ash: How bout it, Celebi? Want to watch this video with Hinata? (Celebi nods enthusiastically)

(Before Ash can head for the projector, he hears a TWANG! from offstage, which scares Celebi)

Brock(offstage): Oh wonderful...

Ash: What?

Brock: One of my guitar strings broke, so now I can't sing the song I was gonna sing!

Dawn: It's okay..you'll think of something....

May: Try playing guitar with your tongue!

Brock: Cartoon rabbits can do it, but I can't...(he thinks on that for a moment) SAY....

Dawn: What?

Brock: I may not be able to play this on my tongue...but I CAN play guitar...with my voice!

Misty: THIS I have to see...

Brock(imitating a guitar): Dan dah dao...

(Dawn plays back what Brock sang on her guitar)

Brock(still doing his vocal guitar): La la lao...

(Dawn plays back the notes Brock sang)

Ash(over Brock's vocal guitar): I think I know where this is going...

(Celebi leads the clapping as Brock and Dawn do a rousing rendition of the Tiny Toon Adventures theme song. The audience roars with applause when they're done)

Brock: Thank you! (takes a bow)

Ash: Very nice... (notices that Celebi is looking annoyed) I know, I didn't forget! (heads over the projector, threads a reel inside, and starts it)

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

(Back in the theater, Celebi listens as Brock finishes fixing the broken string)

Brock: There we go...I got the broken string fixed just in time for my part of the show!

[guitar chord]

Brock: You must always remember...

[whistle solo, then the music picks up]

Brock: Life can be a challenge,
Life can be impossible...
It's never easy when so much is all for life...

But you can make a difference,
With courage you can set things right!
The gift to dream and make things real,
Is yours and mi-ee-ai-ee-ne!

The power of one!
Begins with believing!
It starts in the heart,
Then flows through the soul,
And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be,
When we stand in unity,
Each of us holds the key,
To the power of one!

Each of us is chosen,
There's a mission just for you!
Just look inside,
You'll be surprised,
What you can do!

The power of one!
Begins with believing!
It starts in the heart,
Then flows through the soul,
And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be,
When we stand in unity,
Each of us holds the key,
To the power of one!

[dance break-Ash, Pikachu and Celebi are grooving to the song as the guitar, fiddle, and whistle trade solos]

Brock: The power of one!
Begins with believing!
It starts in the heart,
Then flows through the soul,
And changes the world!

Imagine how life will be,
When we stand in unity,
Each of us holds the key,
To the power of one!

Each of us holds the key,
To the power of one!

Each of us holds the key,
To the power of one!

The power of one... (the audience roars as Brock takes a bow, then acknowledges the band)

Celebi: Bi! Cele, cele!

Ash: I don't know about an encore, but how's this sound? (starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"Go, Go, Pokemon Ranger!", part 2]

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Celebi onstage)

Ash: Well, it's been fun having Celebi here and all, but we're almost out of time...

(an "Aww..." goes up from the crowd. Celebi tears up)

Ash: Hey don't cry, Celebi...you can catch us tomorrow night at the same time! (Celebi smiles again) Until then, see ya!

Pikachu: Pika! (he, Ash, and Celebi wave goodbye as the curtain closes. "On Our Way" reprise plays as the credits roll.)

ANP #081: On the Wings of a Battle


(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Winona are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: How can a battle have wings? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(On Our Way plays in the background as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! (On Our Way fades out at this point) Tonight we wanna pay tribute to someone very well known to the denizens of Fortree City... (various cheers come from the audience) Aside from being a skilled battler, she'll even take out on a flight herself if you ask. (more cheers) With that being said, please welcome the lovely Winona to the stage.

(Applause as Winona appears and gets comfortable in a chair facing Ash)

Winona: Thank you all, and thank you, Ash...it's good to be here this evening.

Ash: My pleasure--

(Before Ash can say any more, Brock zips onstage and begins singing very fast gibberish to the tune of "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain", only to be yanked offstage by the cane a few seconds later)

Winona: Don't tell me...

Ash: I know how Brock went gaga for you the first time...the best way to keep him quiet before his act is to yank him off with the cane or hit him with a pie. (laughter) Both of which are magically drawn by our resident artist, Misty. (applause as Misty comes onstage and joins Ash and Winona in the circle of chairs.)

Misty: So this is the famous Winona...

Winona: I've heard plenty about you too, Misty...maybe we can chat while we watch this? (holds a reel in the air)

Ash: Why don't we? (he takes the reel from Winona, threads it into the projector, and starts it, making the lights go down.)

[CARTOON-"Who's Flying Now?"]

(We see a pair of live Ash hands holding a camera, about to take a picture of a Swellow. Before Ash can take the picture of the Swellow, it flies away! The female announcer says "'The Ash and Pikachu Show' will be right back after these messages." as a trail of Swellow feathers drift down to the ground, creating Pikachu's face.)

(We see the live Ash hands again, this time trying to control the Swellow from earlier, The female announcer says "And now, back to 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'" as Ash loops about in the sky. When we zoom out a few seconds later, we see that all the looping has created a Pikachu face in the sky)

(We rejoin Winona and Misty backstage at the drawing board)

Winona: So whatever you draw with these magical pencils comes alive?

Misty: Mm-hmm...

Winona: And Ash says the best way to calm down Brock is hit him with a pie?

Misty: It works every time when we're desprate...

Winona: So why don't you show me what some of the craziest ways you've dreamed up to hit him with a pie...on paper?

Misty: Sure...it won't be quite so messy on paper... (goes to work)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Winona(voiceover): Okay, Misty...work your art!

Misty(voiceover): Well, every time I've hit Brock with a pie, it's usually one single pie...

(a pie comes out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)

(Brock cleans the pie off of him, so he looks clean again)

Misty(voiceover): But what I'd really like to do is hit him with more than one pie...

(Brock jumps, ducks, and sidesteps several pies)

Brock: Missed me! (blows a raspberry in the direction the pies came from--only to dodge more pies)

Winona(voiceover): Oh no, you don't!

(a hand appears and plops Brock in a chair overlooking a crowd)

Brock: Hey, this is nice... (relaxes in the chair as it lifts him up so he can see the crowd better...untill he notices three pies in front of him)

Misty(voiceover): Any last words?

Brock: ::gulp:: Uh oh...

(the crowd roars as three SPLUTs are heard. When we see Brock again, he's smothered in whipped cream)

Winona(voiceover): And for extra humiliation...

(A Swellow squawk is heard overhead, and a green splotch lands on Brock from above)

(the page is torn off, and Brock is redrawn again, clean)

Brock: Why didn't you TELL me you were gonna SPLUT me...(he struggles to think of the word) thrice?

Misty(voiceover): I just wanted to have some fun!

Brock: Can we think of some fun that isn't messy?

(the pencil draws in a playground background)

Brock: This shouldn't be so bad...

(We see Brock climbing on the jungle gym, swinging on the swings, and going down the slide...until he notices a huge pie at the bottom of the slide...)

(We hear a huge SPLUT! when Brock finally lands...he climbs out of the pie covered in whipped cream again)

Brock: Note to self: No more "What Would You Do?" reruns before bedtime... (the trail Brock has left spells "The End")

(Winona giggles as Misty draws the last scene)

Misty: Here... (signs her name on the last panel and tears off the paper) You can keep it as a souvenir.

Winona: Thank you, Misty... (takes the paper and follows Misty onstage, where Brock and the band are tuning up)

Ash: Now, it's time for a real treat! (the crowd cheers) A world premiere song from Brock and the band...

(music begins)

Brock: Like the mountain I must conquer, like the battle I must endure,
I will fight for your honor, steadfast and sure!
Some kind of vision fit for a king, and I got a feeling I can do anything...

We will meet again, we will meet again! (yeahhh yeahhhh)
We will meet again!

I will search the whole world over, if that’s what I must do,
I’ll follow every winding road, just to be with you!
I got a dream that I just can’t ignore, before I am through I will open every door...

We will meet again, we will meet again!

And nothing can stop this journey (stop this journey), across this unknown land!
And like the fire that keeps on burning (fire that keeps on burning), we will make our stand!

We are bound together by fates, set apart by what we found,
And we’ll make this sacrifice, cause we know where we are found...
Side by side we will ride once again, if we keep the flame alive my friend…

We will meet again, we will meet again! (we will meet again)

I will search the whole world over, if that’s what I must do!
I’ll follow every winding road, just to be with you!
I got a dream that I just can’t ignore, before I am through I will open every door....

We will meet again, we will meet again!

And nothing can stop this journey (stop this journey), across this unknown land,
And like the fire that keeps on burning (fire that keeps on burning), we will make our stand

We will meet again! (wild applause)

Winona: Wonderful! Beautiful!

Brock: Thank you! (bows again. Ash just starts the projector...)

[CARTOON-Sky High Gym Battle!]

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and Winona onstage)

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

Winona: Can we do one more thing before we go?

Ash: What?

Winona: Can we do the dance we did at the beginning one last time?

Ash: Sure!

(Ash, Pikachu, and Winona dance to a reprise of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits roll. They pose when the credits finish)

The new opening was based on the Disney Cartoon Classics theme tune, shown here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUyn46C3-Bw

I figured it was about time to do a new opening and closing, but I wanted to gauge audience feedback first.

So...

Very nice episode FR, so is Brock finished with the dictionary, or is he just taking a break from it? I loved that comic, and the WWYDI refrence too. Too bad we didn't get to see the pie machine/chair, but you can't have everything. Keep up the good work.

ANP #082: Catching the Wave!



(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash, Brawly, and Shawna are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Like, hang twenty five, dude! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades)

(On Our Way interlude plays briefly as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! (On Our Way fades out) Tonight we want to feature two of the most famous faces of Dewford Town... (various cheers are heard in the audience) so join me in welcoming Brawly and Shawna to the stage. (leads the applause as Brawly and Shawna charge onstage)

Shawna: Hello out there! (waves)

Brawly: I am so stoked to be sharing the stage with the Ash-man! (he offers his hand to Ash) Put'er there, man! (Ash and Brawly shake hands)

Ash: The pleasure's all mine, both of you... (at this second, May arrives onstage, Misty and Dawn in tow)

May: Brawly, Shawna, what a surprise! It's been so long! (an "Awww..." is heard as May and Shawna hug)

Brawly: And who might these two be? (gestures to Misty and Dawn)

Ash: This is Misty, our resident artist... (Misty waves) Anything her pencil draws come to life!

Shawna: Magical pencils?

Brawly: Puh-leese...

(Before Brawly can say any more, Brock zips onstage and begins singing the tune of "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain" in very fast, unintelligle gibberish)

Misty: Watch and learn! (she draws the cane, which yanks Brock offstage)

Brawly: Oh I see...if the Brock-man misbehaves or comes on before his cue, you yank him off, right?

Ash: Something like that... (light laughter) And this is Dawn...our other singer...she likes to challenge Brock in something we call...

(a flash of lightning streaks across the screen as dramatic music plays)

Ash(echo-y voiceover): Musical Duel! (the words flash on the screen as Ash says them)

(When we return to the theater, the lights have dimmed onstage. Brock is on the left side of the stage, and Dawn on the right. May is at center stage with a sparkly flag in each hand)

Ash(voiceover): Here's how this works, guys...in a moment, our two competitors will get an instrument at random. The objective here is not just to get a note, but actually play a little bit of a song.

Brawly: Sounds good...

Ash(voiceover): That being said, who will win today? Ruby? (a red spotlight appears on Brock with an image of Groudon superimposed behind him) or Sapphire? (Dawn appears in a blue spotlight with an image of Kyorge superimposed behind her) But first we must determine what instrument will be played this time...

(an image of a harmonica appears)

Ash(voiceover): Shall we wail the blues? (a spotlight appears on the harmonica)

(When we return to the theater, we see that Brock and Dawn each have harmonicas)

Ash(voiceover): First, we'll see how Ruby fares....

(a red countdown blips "3...2...1...", then Brock proceeds to play a short blues riff)

Ash(voiceover): Now, Sapphire...

(a blue countdown blips "3...2...1...", and Dawn tries to blow, but only ends up making an airy noise)

Ash(voiceover): And this match's winner is... (a drumroll is heard before May raises the sparkly red flag) RUBY!!! (applause as Brock bows for the audience)

Shawna: Neato!

Dawn: Can you give me lessons?

Brock: Sure... (he follows Dawn offstage. Ash, meanwhile, starts over to the projector)

Ash: While they do that, let's watch this! (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"A Meditite Fight!", part 1]

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands gripping a towline as a boat carries him through the water. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the boat speeds off, making several Pikachu faces in the water.)

(When we return to Ash, we see he's riding on a surfboard--and he crashes into a rock as the tide comes in. Brawly says "Welcome back to the show, dudes!" as claymation Pikachus with wings spin around Ash's head)

(Shawna winces at the eyecatch as we return to the theater)

Shawna: That had to hurt...

Misty: You know...that reminded me of the very first living comic I ever drew...

Brawly: Really? Could you mind showing it to us?

Misty: My pleasure! (gets some paper and 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.)

Misty(voiceover): Ah, a fresh piece of blank paper...let's see what sort of mayhem we can make here....but before that, we need a character to undergo our adventures!

(A pencil appears on the screen and begins drawing and coloring Brock)

Brock: Hi! (looks around the blank screen) I could use some scenery here...

(The pencil draws a line behind Brock, making a very simple scene)

Brock: Not much of a scene...

Misty(voiceover): Then be specific!

Brock: Okay...how about...the beach? (the pencil draws in a crowded beach) and I'm surfing to impress the ladies! (the pencil draws a surfboard and water under Brock, before it starts to erase him!) Hey, what the...?

Misty(voiceover): I'm just dressing you accordingly...(the pencil draws swim trunks onto Brock) There. Happy surfing! (the scene begins moving--Brock weaves and swirls on the waves, to the point of making silly poses on the board) But, watch where you're going, Surfer King! (Brock crashes into a palm tree, making "The End" appear on the screen)

(Brawly watches as Misty draws the last scene)

Brawly: So that right there...was comic numero uno, right?

Misty: Yeah...and as thanks for coming... (signs her name on the last panel and tears it off the pad) I want you guys to have it as a souvenir.

Shawna: Aw, thank you! (hugs Misty)

Ash: And now, it's time for a song from Brock and the band...

(music begins)

Brock: Like the mountain I must conquer, like the battle I must endure,
I will fight for your honor, steadfast and sure!
Some kind of vision fit for a king, and I got a feeling I can do anything...

We will meet again, we will meet again! (yeahhh yeahhhh)
We will meet again!

I will search the whole world over, if that’s what I must do,

And like the fire that keeps on burning (fire that keeps on burning), we will make our stand...

We will meet again! (wild applause)

Brawly: Awesome!

Shawna: Nice crooning there! (Misty tiptoes to the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"A Meditite Fight!", part 2]

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Brawly, and Shawna onstage)

Ash: Well, it's about time to say goodbye...

Brawly: I'd like to do that little groove we did at the top of the show one more time!

Ash: Okay!

(Pikachu's Tap Dance plays in the background and everyone dances as the credits roll)

The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Does it feel hot in here, or is it just me? (wipes his brow as one last hit of music plays)

(On Our Way interlude plays as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! And Brock, if it feels hot in here, that's because we have a flaming hot personality with us tonight!

Brock(offstage): NOW you tell me... (laughter)

Ash: That being said, allow me to introduce you to Lavaridge's resident firebrand...the lovely Flannery!

(wild applause as Flannery charges onstage and waves to the crowd)

Flannery: Thank you so much! (to Ash) I am stoked to be here tonight!

Ash: The pleasure's all ours... (he invites Flannery to sit down, just as May comes onstage, with Beautifly sitting atop her head)

May: Hi, Flannery!

Beautifly: Beauti!

Flannery: Hello, May and Beautifly...

Brock: And HELLO, my fiery one! (laughter)

Flannery: Well, the gang's all here, so let's bust out the ol' projector and reminesce, shall we? (Pikachu hops off Ash's shoulder, threads a reel in the projector, and starts it)

[CARTOON-"Poetry Commotion!"]

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands trekking through a volcanic cave. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash finds a hot spring in the cave. One wisp of steam turns into Pikachu's face as Ash gets comfortable in the water)

(We next see Ash and Flannery battling, Squirtle vs. Torkoal. The announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as Squirtle jumps from a Flamethrower attack. One of the lava flows by Squirtle is a Pikachu face)

(When we return to the cast, Flannery is passing out Lava Cookies to everyone.)

Flannery: More Lava Cookies, anybody?

May: I do! (Flannery gives May a cookie. Just then, Misty comes onstage, interested in the smell)

Misty: Interesting cookies... (takes one)

Flannery: They're Lava Cookies, my hometown specialty! (Misty smiles as she eaats her cookie)

Brock: So, what shall we watch next?

Flannery: One of the hottest cartoons on TV right now... (brandishes a reel that reads "Kochou and the Beautiflies" on it)

Misty: That reminds me... (she reaches for her sketchbook and invites Flannery to watch)

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

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

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

Misty(voiceover): Okay, what should we make Ash do?

Flannery(voiceover): Oh...draw him in a sparkly shirt and checkered jacket! (the pencil obliges and draws a fake white rose in the right pocket) And sparkly pants! (the pencil obliges) And long silvery hair! (Ash's hair grows and turns the aforementioned color)

Misty(voiceover): You know, he looks just like a rock star! I'll draw a director... (draws a brown haired girl) and her assistant (draws Max) and see what happens... (draws a stage...)

Rubina: This is what you have to sing before the Rock n' Roll Forever CD is described, okay? The chords are there too.

Ash: Got it!

(We blip to the scene of a stage, where Ash, as Kochou, stands at the center before a mic, a red electric guitar in hand. The crew hurries to position)

Rubina: We're on in 3, 2, 1!

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 1! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat, but his notes are sounding a little off)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every place!
Rockin and a reelin,
Reelin and rockin,
Shakin up the human race!

Rubina: Cut! Your guitar's out of tune!

Ash: It is? (checks a few notes. Sure enough, they're horrendously out of tune.) Yeesh, it DOES need to be tuned. (starts tuning his instrument)

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 2! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat.)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it--- (strums a few uncertain notes) Line?

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 3! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat.)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every place!

(Before Ash can sing more, a blast of feedback is heard)

Rubina: Cut! Adjust the microphone!

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 5! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash is clearly moving his mouth like he's singing, but we don't hear anything)

Rubina: Cut! The mike needs to be turned on!

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 9! (claps the clapboard)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?

Offscreen voice: Jigglypuff, jiggly...

Rubina: Someone get the Jigglypuff (yawn) out of here...

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 13! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash gives his guitar a mighty strum, making a POW! be heard nearby. The crew rushes to extinguish the burning speaker.)

Ash: Oops...

Rubina: It wasn't you, someone turned it up too loud....

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 25! (claps the clapboard)

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 33! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat, but the silver wig begins to slip off, revealing his normal black hair He scrambles to keep it on, to no avail.)

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Take 47! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat.)

Ash: Great, I broke a string!

(a glitchy rock beat begins.)

Ash: Wha?

Rubina: Cut! Fix the backup tape!

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every place!
Rockin and a reelin,
Reelin and rockin,
Shakin up the human race! (As Ash is singing, various arrows start scrolling upwards, obscuring Ash's face)

Rubina: Okay, who's playing DDR when we're supposed to be filming?

(We blip to Max holding a clapboard)

Max: Rock n' Roll Forever, take 75! (claps the clapboard)

Rubina(voiceover): And, action!

(a rock beat begins. Ash begins strumming in time to the beat.)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every--! (trips on a mic wire) YIPE! (falls to the floor with a crash)

Rubina: We'll never get filming done at this rate.... (Rubina's notepad reads "The End")

(Flannery laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

Flannery: That was great! If Ash can play the part of Kochou...

(the audience goes wild at this)

Flannery: If Ash can play the part of Kochou, I have a little something he can use for the costume... (she walks up to Ash and deposits a silver treble clef pendant in his hand) For you.

Ash: Wow, thanks! (puts it on)

Brock: Try and transform!

Ash: Oh come on, that only works in the cartoon!

Brock: Try it! Try it!

(the audience chants "Try it!" along with Brock, to the point where they're clapping and stomping)

Ash: Okay... (wild cheers and applause) Here goes nothing...(he holds his hand in the air, then sings in a noticeably older sounding voice): Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

(The crowd roars as the light fades, revealing Ash as Kochou)

Misty: It worked!

May: Now all we need is Niji and we can re-enact the cartoon...

(At this, a puppet of Niji appears next to Ash. From the audience, we can see Brock's hand manipulating the puppet, but Ash doesn't see this)

Brock(in a bad impression of Niji's voice): Your public awaits, Kochou!

Ash(aside): I know that's Brock doing his bad Niji voice, but I'll play along. (as Kochou) You got it, Niji! (motions to the band)

(music begins)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Have you heard the latest word?
They're playin' it every place!
Rockin and a reelin,
Reelin and rockin,
Shakin up the human race!

Ash and others: Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n roll's here to stay, hey!
Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!

Ash(singing as Kochou): No matter what they say!
Kids all around adore the sound,
Settin the world aflame!
Rockin and a reelin,
Reelin and rockin,
Nothin's gonna be the same!

Ash and others: Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n roll's here to stay, yeah!
Rock n roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!

Ash(singing as Kochou): No matter what they say!

Ash and others: Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!
Rock n roll's here to stay, yeah!
Rock n roll forever!
Rock n' roll forever!

Ash(singing as Kochou): No matter what they say!

Ash and others: Rock n' roll forever, Rock n' roll forever,
Rock n' roll forever! (the crowd roars in applause)

Flannery: Now that's some hot stuff, there! (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Poetry Commotion")

(Back in the theater, we see a flash of light, revealing Ash again)

Ash: How'd I do? (the crowd roars again as Dawn enters)

Dawn: What's all the fuss about?

May: You missed it, dawn! Ash did his impersonation of Kochou of "Kochou and the Beautiflies" fame, right down to the transformation.... (continues rambling in the background as Ash addresses the audience.)

Ash(over May's yammering): Well, I had a great time, but we'll see you next time! (Pikachu waves as the curtain closes, then hops off Ash's shoulder and proceeds to dance to "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits run. When the curtain reopens, we see May still talking to Dawn...)

May: ...and they go all over the world playing shows and trying to defeat the Rockets... (continues)

Dawn(over May's rambling): Somebody make her stop...

(at this second, the cane appears and yanks May offstage)

Misty: Happy now? (sticks her pencil behind her ear as the scene fades out)

I felt we were all overdue for those three things, so I had May get yanked for a change of pace.

Maybe you could also have Brock DODGE the cane in a future episode, only to get distracted by something (like a pretty girl), and THEN he gets yanked off.

Weak suggestion, but hey... *shrugs*

That's one idea, plus maybe the cane beats Misty at her own game, getting HER yanked!

Episode suggestion:

Name:???
Theme: Pikachu sues Ash for using his ideas in an episode without permision, so they go to court where Pokemon act as the attournies ( with Wobbufet or another Pokemon similar to him is the judge!)

That probably won't happen, but I could tweak it to have Pikachu run the show for an episode...

ANP #084: Chu Times Chu



(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and a second Pikachu, this one Shiny; are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Am I seeing double? (smiles over one last hit of music before the scene fades out)

(On Our Way interlude plays as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show--

(Suddenly, the lights go out for a few seconds. Ash (we only sees his eyes) starts off stage right to go look for a flashlight, but the lights blink back on again before he can enter the wings)

Ash: So much for the flashlight... (laughter as he returns to his place at center stage) Anyway, tonight--

(Ash is cut off by the whir of the projector)

Ash: Huh? (he runs over to the projector and switches it off before it can complete its countdown of "3...2...1...") There... (Misty comes onstage, confused at the commotion)

Misty: What's wrong?

Ash: The projector started at the wrong time...

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

(Ash pushes the title card away)

Ash: And your segement got cued when you weren't ready...

Misty: I didn't even have my supplies ready!

(A thunderclap and dramatic music is heard, startling Misty)

Ash: And I didn't even ask for a Musical Duel... (the dramatic music fades out)

Misty: Okay, so why is everything in the theater going haywire?

Ash: Well... (he is suddenly cut off as "Pikachu's Tap Dance" starts again and the credits start rolling over his face)

Brock: HOLD EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!

(a record scrape is heard and the credits stop as Brock comes onstage)

Ash: Why did the credits start rolling when the show hasn't started yet?

(We see a pair of live Ash hands inside a control room, cuing various shows for broadcast at the TV station. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'! as Ash cues a cartoon to be shown. One of the various controls is a button shaped like a Pikachu face)

(Brock shoves the eyecatch away)

Brock: More importantly, why did an eyecatch show just now? It's not even time for commercial!

(Ash is about to answer when a blast of feedback reverbrates in the theater)

Misty: I think SOMEONE's messing with the controls...

(No sooner does Misty say that, does the theme for Vermillion City come blaring in the theater)

Brock(over the music): Come on! To the control room!

Ash: To the control room!

Misty(with less enthusiasm then the boys): To the control room... (she sighs and follows the boys out, starting the projector and stopping the music on the way out)

(CARTOON-"Pikachu Re-Volts!", part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands overlooking a movie set. the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash checks over the actors' positions. A clapboard appears, with the take number spot showing Pikachu's face)

(When we return to Ash on the movie set, various things are going wrong: the camera shoots film out of it, the actors trip and fall, and when the female announcer says "And now, back to our show!" the set falls down, creating a Pikachu face in the dust cloud)

(Meanwhile, in the control room, a Shiny Pikachu sits amonts all the rows of buttons and switches, and is obviously enthralled with playing with them all...but when he hears footsteps approaching, he quickly darts away as Ash, Misty, and Brock enter)

Brock: Okay, who's messing with the controls?

(Nincadas chirp)

Misty: You sure nobody was messing with the controls?

Brock: Must've been my imagination, I guess. (he leads the others back to the stage, where we see Dawn and May waiting)

May: What where you guys doing in the control room?

Ash: The whole show's been going haywire, so we were checking to see if someone was messing with the controls.

May: I see...

(Meanwhile, the Shiny Pikachu spots Dawn snoozing on a cot by the prop room...and gets an idea. He hurries into the prop room and returns with an armload of bike horns. Then, he returns with tape, and begins taping bike horns to Dawn. Treecko spots the Pikachu doing this, and begins taping several bike horns by her feet. Torchic helps by taping three by her head, and Mudkip adds a few more in between her legs and on her back.

The four Pokemon sneak to a box and watch as Dawn wakes up and walks onstage--much to the audience's delight. Even the rest of the cast is laughing)

Dawn: What's so--(she looks down at her clothes) Okay, who stuck all these bike horns on me? (starts to unstick them as the audience laughs) I'm not agile enough to play classical music on them... (Pikachu giggles as he starts the projector.)

(CARTOON-"Pikachu Re-Volts!", part 2)

(We join Ash back in the theater. Dawn is nearby, unsticking the last few bike horns)

Ash: And now--

(a whistle is heard backstage)

Ash: Anyway, now--

(a rimshot is heard)

Ash: I didn't even tell a joke! (he check the soundboard at the foot of the stage and spots the Shiny Pikachu) Ah ha! (he catches the Pikachu as it tries to flee) Now...why are you trying to mess up the show?

Shiny Pikachu: Oh geez, how do I answer this? Well truthfully, whoever wrote the script for this episode of the show had me annoy you by messing up the show in some way, like, causing the projector to start early and cuing whatever that segment is where you draw comics early and believe me, you draw great comics, Misty.

Misty: Why thank you...um...

Brock: Okay if we call you Mikaru? (the Shiny Pikachu nods)

Ash: You want to be a star, Mikaru? (Mikaru nods.) I can let you be a cast member here...

Mikaru: Oh, yeah! (he dances around Ash singing Friends for life, friends for life! Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!)

Ash: However, you need to behave yourself...think you can do that?

Mikaru: Okay...

Brock: You know...Mikaru just gave me an idea for a song...

(a boogie piano intro begins. As the rest of the band starts playing, we see Mikaru playing the grand piano. Ash and Brock appear holding microphones as lights begin flashing in time to the music.)

Ash: I got class, pananche, I'm in the groove ...

Brock: As long as you don't try to move!
I got style, grace and a crazy beat...

Ash: You sure are light on those two left feet, and we're,

Ash and Brock: Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!

Ash: I've got a problem I can't explain...

Brock: I'll be there with the plane!
I got moves, man...

Ash: You learned from me! I got a song to sing...

Brock: If you can find the key!

Ash and Brock: Whatever he's got, I've got more of!
But there's one thing we both are sure of, we're,

Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!

Brock: I'm stuck on a mountain without a hope...

Ash: I'll be there with the rope!

Brock: Like my duds?

Ash: Oh, you sure are cute!

Brock: They fit me better than a Master's suit!

Ash: There' nothing you do I don't do better,

Ash and Brock: But as long as we can stick together, we're

Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!
There's all kinds of people, but we'd rather be friends for life, you and me!

[dance break- the audience laughs at the silly dance Ash and Brock do]

Ash: Here we go! Friends for life,

Brock: Friends for life!

Ash and Brock: Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!
There's all kinds of people, but we'd rather be friends for life, you and me!

Ash: If I'm in a jam...

Brock: Here I am, and if I get sick...

Ash: I'll fix it quick, and if I fall in love...

Brock: Hey! That's enough!

Ash and Brock: We're friends for life!

Ash(scatting): Shu-bee-dee-a-doo-a-dee-an-da-ohhhh yeah! (applause) Thank you! (he and Brock bow as Dawn starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Pikachu Re-Volts!", part 3)

(We join Ash and Mikaru onstage)

Mikaru: I liked that song!

Ash: Then you'll love the dance we do to end the show...see ya next time! (Pikachu waves, them watches as Ash and Mikaru start dancing to "Pikachu's Tap Dance". The credits roll during the routine.)

ANP #085: That's Entertainment!


(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Mikaru are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title and the words "Happy Birthday to" fly into place. The completed title card, which now reads "Happy Birthday to The Ash and Pikachu Show", slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Has it really been a year already? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onto the stage, which is covered in red, blue, and yellow streamers and balloons)

Ash: Thank you! It's been a year since we started doing the show.... (wild applause) so tonight we're gonna celebrate this year by looking back on where we've been. (more applause. Mikaru runs onstage, piqued by the applause)

Mikaru: Why the party decor? Whose birthday is it?

Ash: The show's! We've been doing this for a year!

Mikaru: Wow...really?

Misty: Yeah! We found this place in disrepair several years ago, so we fixed it up and hosted our first show here beginning last year.

Brock: And doesn't this place look beautiful? (applause as he wheels out the projector)

Mikaru: Ever since I saw that first show, I wanted to have a place on it with you guys...

Ash: I remember that first show like yesterday... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it, making the lights go down. After counting down "3...2...1..." the clapboard for the first show is seen)

Brock(voiceover): "The Ash and Pikachu Show" episode 1, take 1! (claps the clapboard)

(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)

(Applause as Ash (this time in his normal attire) jogs onstage and waves to the imaginary crowd.)

Ash: Thank you! We have a great show planned for you tonight...we've got thrills---

(Ash is cut off by a scream backstage)

Ash: Uh, I didn't mean those kinds of thrills...::ahem:: We've got chills--

(We see the backstage thermostat-a mysterious hand turns the knob down, making the temperature in the theater drop to the point where Ash is a human ice cube)

Ash(shivering): I d-didn't m-mean those kinds of ch-chills, either...Who's m-messing with the thermostat?

(The answer of course, is Pikachu...he playfully turns the knob all the way to the right, making the theater so hot, Ash melts into an amoeba made of sweat. He crawls backstage to see Pikachu turning the temperature knob back and forth, making the theater's environment change accordingly)

Ash-amoeba: Pikachu? Could you stop messing with the thermostat? You're making it uncomfortable for me and the audience!

Pikachu: Chu! (he resets the thermostat back to normal, making Ash appear in his original form)

Ash: Now come on! We have a show to do! (returns to the stage, Pikachu in tow) As I was saying, we even have a few surprises for-- (a trapdoor suddenly opens under Ash) YOOOOUUUU!!!! (A splash is heard)

Pikachu: Pikapi? (looks down the trapdoor to see Ash in a puddle of water)

Ash: Just start the first cartoon, would ya?

Pikachu: Pika! (he bounds up to a projector and starts it, making the lights in the theater go down)

(Mikaru giggles as the projector continues running)

Ash: So began our shows...before long, they started selling out! They liked our simple format: I would introduce the acts...

Misty: I drew the comics...

Brock: And I sang a song, usually with the band. (gestures to the band, who is tuning up)

Mikaru: What song did you sing on the first show?

Brock: I'll show you! (he disappears offstage for a moment, then returns with his guitar. Ash, meanwhile, settles in at the grand piano.) Maestro...(Ash just plays a simple piano chord, while Brock prepares to give his guitar a mighty strum) That's the whole introduction? You're supposed to do it in a light key, too!

Ash: Okay, okay... (plays a bouncy blues intro, while Brock strums to the beat)

Brock: I'm...blue as I can be! (Brock's spotlight turns blue, every time he mentions a color his spotlight changes accordingly) Green with jealousy! Look what you've done to me!

I got those green...with envy blues!
I mean those red...with anger blues!
And there's the purple with passion blues,
Over you!

Orange...you're gonna squeeze me...neath the mellow, yellow moon...

So I can lose these green with envy, red with anger, purple passionate blues...

Oh! Oh-oh-oh-oh! (gags)

Misty: Methinks you need to practice that...

Brock: Purple with passion blues...over you! Oh! Whoa-oh-oh-oh!
Orange...you're gonna squeeze me...neath the mellow, yellow moon!

So I can lose these green with envy, red with anger, purple passionate blues!
And that's the green with envy blues! (applause) Thank you! (bows and acknowledges Ash, who also bows)

Mikaru: Bravo! Encore!

Ash: You'll get your encore after this... (plays a jazz riff based on "On Our Way" as the audience claps along.)

(We see a pair of animated Ash hands tearing open a birthday present. As he lifts the gift (a set of comic books) from the box, the camera zooms to look at the pile of presents as the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" We notice that the wrapping paper on one box is Pikachu faces)

(We return to see a birthday cake before Ash. As he blows out the candles, the female announcer says "And now, back to the show!". The smoke wisps from the candles form Pikachu's face)

(we rejoin Ash and Mikaru in the theater)

Ash: The press raved about every show we did, and despite our original plans for just a 25 show run, the fans begged for more! (May enters as Ash continues talking) May contributed something new to the show that second season...acting!

Mikaru: Acting!! (he holds an apple in one paw and strikes a dramatic pose) To be or not to be, that is the question.... (light laughter)

Ash: Not that kind of acting...(to May) Get the mini stage... (May nods, and heads offstage) This kind of acting was more in a humorous vein... (May returns with the mini stage)

May: But the audience loved it nonetheless! (smiles as Ash and Brock step on the mini stage)

(On Our Way interlude plays as the title card appears: "'Curtain Up' with May'. May's face appears in the rounded part of the a in her name.)

(We open on the scene of a band room, complete with instruments, music stands, chairs, and a mirrored screen dividing the room in half so that the diffrent sections can practice privately if they need to.)

(Ash enters the room carrying some books (presumably the music the band is playing for a supposed concert). After setting them aside on a nearby music stand, he pauses to admire himself on his side of the mirror, with light laughter. After checking to see if he looks presentable, Ash takes one of the trombone cases lying in the clutter of cases, opens it, and assembles the instrument inside. Once that's done, he blows a stream of B flats to check the acoustics of the room.

Meanwhile, Brock has entered the room and gotten settled on his side of the screen, where he too assembles a trombone of his own. Ash, meanwhile, continues to warm up. Brock first decides to flex his arms a few times as Ash continues warming up, then attends to his own instrument. While Ash is taking his last minute practice seriously, Brock is goofing around, using the trombone slide like a sword. Finally, he also settles in and starts his own warm up.

The two trombones meld together for a few minutes, making it hard to tell who's playing what for a few minutes. Finally, Brock starts a riff from a classical number, which Ash counters with a excerpt of "Flight of the Beedrill". Annoyed at Ash's showing off, Brock proceeds to blare "The Ride of the Valkyries" over Ash's performance, much to the audience's delight. Ash tries to follow along with this, but his version is off key compared to Brock's.

Ash next tries a riff from Ravel's "Bolero", complete with a few smears. Brock decides to one up Ash by playing the same part up a step, only to get one upped by Ash as he plays what Brock was playing up a step. Before long, both are just noodling around in the high register trying to outdo each other.

Before Brock can think of something else to counter Ash, Ash sees a glimpse of the sheet music on one of the horn player's stands: the famed horn call from "Siegfried", and pulls off an amazingly good sounding version that sounds just like a horn, much to Brock's surprise. Brock decides to try it himself, and follows along with the next part of the call. The two trade off on this until it dissolves into an off key mess again.)

Brock: I hope the horn players didn't hear us stealing their stuff... (laughter)

Ash: Let's see if we can play high enough to make the trumpets jealous!

Brock: Highest note we can muster on three, okay? (Ash nods) One...two...three!

(Both of them blow the highest, loudest, most out of tune note they can muster...until both give out, breathing heavily)

Ash: I think we can brag to the trumpets now...

Brock: Let's hurry and finish warming up before the rest of the band gets here!

Ash: Gotcha! (plays a little piece of "Dueling Banjoes")

(Brock plays the next part of the song, which in turn snowballs into a full blown rendition of "dueling 'bones" The audience applauds when they're done)

Ash: Rematch after rehearsal? (as Ash says this, various other instruments are heard tuning up in the background)

Brock: You're on! (laughter and applause as the scene fades out)

(The girls and Mikaru are still laughing as Ash and Brock bow to the audience)

Dawn: That was hilarious!

Misty: Ha ha...I agree! (laughs even more)

Mikaru: I wanna hear that again! (wipes away a tear of laughter)

Brock: Again? (readies his trombone)

Ash: Yeah!

(Misty leads the clapping as the boys battle again, leading to more wild applause when they finish. Just then, May enters with a birthday cake.)

May: I hate to interuppt the jam session and nostalgia, but the cake is ready!

Ash: Oh boy!

(after getting the stage back in order, we see the whole cast gathered around the cake, which now has a single lit candle on it.)

Misty: Maestro...

(guitar chord)

Everyone: Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear show,
Happy birthday to you! (applause as Mikaru blows the candle out)

Ash: I claim the first piece! (Misty hands him his slice) Well, we're about out of time for tonight, and here's to another year of shows! (cheers and applause) See you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (waves, then eats his cake. A medley of "On Our Way" and Pikachu's Tap Dance" plays as the credits roll.)

(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show.

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Little Skitty mine mine, won't you sing your song? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

("On Our Way" interlude as Ash runs onstage as waves to the crowd.)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show--

(Suddenly, we hear a few crashes and "Nya!"'s from offstage, followed by Mikaru calling "HEEEEEEEEEEEELPPPPPPP!!!!!!" After a few minutes, Mikaru races onstage, with Skitty in hot pursuit! May follows Skitty, periodically stopping to grab at the tiny pink feline)

Mikaru: Someone get this crazed cat away from me!

Skitty: Nya! (she swats at Mikaru's tail)

May: Skitty! Mikaru is not a toy! (scoops Skitty in her arms as Mikaru crashes into something backstage)

Ash: Mikaru? (checks backstage) Mikaru, are you okay? (looks in the wings, where Mikaru stumbles out to meet Ash, tiny Skitties with wings spinning around his head)

Mikaru(dazed): Look Mom...FIVE Skitties! (laughter as Mikaru plops to the floor at Ash's feet)

Ash: I'll take that as a no... (laughter as he carries Mikaru offstage, pausing to start the projector on the way out)

(CARTOON-"I Feel Skitty!")

(We see a pair of live Ash hands preparing a food dish. After pouring a suitable portion of chow in the bowl, he carries it into another room, where a Skitty is waiting. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash sets the food dish before the Skitty. As the Skitty eats, we see one of the chow nuggets is Pikachu's face)

(When we return to Ash, we find him preventing one disaster after another: shooing the Skitty away from the Goldeens in a fishbowl, steering her away from the drapes, and trying to keep her away from the windowsill, where a fern is sitting. The female announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as the fern falls to the floor, spilling some soil. One of the fern leaves has Pikachu faces as the leaves.)

(We join Misty and Mikaru backstage. Mikaru's head is bandaged from his run-in with Skitty)

Mikaru: What is with that Skitty, anyway?

Misty: She likes chasing tails...

Mikaru: I wonder how Brock would fare caring for her? (rubs his head a little)

Misty: Let's find out! (goes to work at the drawing board...)

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

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

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

Misty(voiceover): Now we'll draw a Skitty... (draws a Skitty next to Brock, followed by the background of a house)

Brock: Hello, there... (the Skitty purrs, then perks up as Bonsly skips by)

Skitty: Nya! (Bonsly yelps as he runs away. Before long, both of them crash into a bookshelf. Just as Brock retrieves Bonsly from the pile of books, he sees Skitty admiring two Goldeen in a fishbowl)

Brock: No you don't! (examines Bonsly some more)

Skitty: Nya! (she bats the water with a paw)

Brock: No you don't! (he shoos Skitty away from the fishbowl...just in time to hear some shredding. He races in the living room to see Skitty clawing the drapes and hangs his head is frustration.)

Skitty: Nya! (smiles proudly over the shredded drapes. The shreds spell "The End")

(Mikaru giggles a bit as Misty draws the last scene, just as Dawn comes backstage)

Dawn: What happened to you, Mikaru?

Mikaru: Long story...

Dawn: May volunteered to sing tonight... (invites Mikaru to join her onstage, where May waits, holding a microphone, while Brock and the band tune up)

May: Hit it, everyone!

(music begins)

May: Little Skitty mine mine, won't you sing your song?

Skitty: Nya!

May: Little Skitty mine, and I'll sing along!
We will be together,
Every day and night...
Little Skitty mine mine, makes me feel so fine!

Skitty: Nya!

[May and Skitty groove to the song during an interlude]

May: My Skitty is so pretty!
No one can compete!
She's always with me,
My Skitty is so sweet!
Whenever I'm sad, she will be the one
To cheer me up, by singing her song!

Skitty: Nya!

May: Litlle Skitty mine mine, won't you sing your song?

Skitty: Nya!

May: Little Skitty mine, and I'll sing along!
We will be together,
Every day and night...
Little Skitty mine mine, makes me feel so fine!

Skitty: Nya!

May: I like to walk the city, but never on my own!
With my fine little Skitty, I'll never feel alone!
If I'm too far away, and feeling blue,
I always find my way back, thanks to you!

Skitty: Nya!

May: Litlle Skitty mine mine, won't you sing your song?

Skitty: Nya!

May: Little Skitty mine, and I'll sing along!
We will be together,
Every day and night...
Little Skitty mine mine, makes me feel so fine!

Skitty: Nya!

May: Na na na na na....
Na na na na na...

We will be together,
Every day and night...
Little Skitty mine mine, makes me feel so fine!

Skitty: Nya! (May and Skitty bow as the audience applauds, then May acknowledges Brock, who also bows.)

Mikaru: That was cute!

Ash: Especially Skitty chiming in! (starts the projector...)

(CARTOON-"Game Winning Assist!")

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Mikaru, May, and Skitty onstage)

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

Skitty: Nya! (bats at Mikaru's tail)

Mikaru: Not again! (darts away)

Ash: See you next time! (quickly waves goodbye, then takes off after Skitty, leaving Pikachu to dance to "Pikachu's Tap Dance" solo as the credits roll.

ANP #087: It's Showtime!


(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Mikaru with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place and the scene turns around to show the crew backstage. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Got a pass? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(We see a scene of the theater from the outside, its marquee reading "TONITE: THE ASH AND PIKACHU SHOW". As we watch the lights on the marquee glitter, Mikaru suddenly pops in the scene)

Mikaru: Hey there! Wondering why we're not inside the theater right now? That's because I've been told to give you guys at home a little sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes of the show! Come on!

(Mikaru starts towards a backstage door, but notices the camera isn't following him)

Mikaru: Come on, don't be shy!

(the camera follows Mikaru around the side of the theater and inside a stage door, where it follows him down the hallway)

Mikaru: In here is where the magic all happens...but planning a show actually begins at least two weeks in advance.

(the scene of the hallway turns into a meeting room, where Mikaru, Ash, and various other men and women are gathered around a table)

Mikaru: First, Ash and the writers discuss show ideas...

(Ash and the writers huddle together like a football team, discussing ideas. every so often, a hand will be seen reaching out of the huddle to grab paper, coffee, a writing utensil; or in some cases, a plush warp pipe, Ash's Pokeflute, some crackers, or chewing gum)

(After laughing over the Mario finger puppet in the plush warp pipe, and a Pokeflute solo from Ash, the discussion begins again.)

Mikaru: These writing sessions are known to get crazy sometimes...

(a ragtime piano tune begins as we see Ash wearing a Mario hat, paper airplanes zipping everywhere, Ash flipping a paper football over a writer's fingers, a male writer slashing some rejected scripts with a fake Master Sword, darts hitting a dartboard, some elaborate paper airplanes zipping about, the writers shooting Pikachu a disgusted look over some charred pages, Ash unknowingly hit with a pie, the writers gimacing over a 404 page, Ash clicking to get rid of popups, Ash pieing a female writer, Ash and the other writers looking unamused at a male writer's Rocket costume, Ash improvising a Pokeflute solo over the piano, the writers looking bemused over some home movies of Ash, Ash and the writers having a singalong while Ash plays Brock's guitar, Brock reclaiming the guitar from Ash, Ash and the witers doing a conga line, Ash playing a harmonica, Ash and the writers doing a chorus line, Ash playing a fiddle, one of the writers attempting to play a fiddle (much to the other writers' and Ash's chagrin), Ash and the writers playing volleyball in the meeting room, the printer spitting out paper, Ash and the writers making origami out of the extra printer paper, Ash writing blank lines on a list while a writer isn't looking, Ash doodling a mustache on a picture of Misty, Ash cleaning the picture off at warp speed before an irate Misty, one of the male writers mowing the carpet in the meeting room, a female writer playing one of Ash's electric guitars really badly, Ash using a computer mouse as a walkie talkie, a male writer trying to ride a unicycle, Ash attempting to spin dash, a female writer posing with a fake Chaos Emerald, Ash building a model of the Pokemon League out of soda cans, Ash hiding a rubber Spinarak in a drawer, one of the female writers freaking out over said Spinarak, the writers splattering paint on the walls, Dawn watching, unamused, as Ash and the writers wrap everything in the meeting room with toliet paper, and to top it off, Charmander setting the script on fire. As Ash triumphantly holds the completed new script over his head, we see that Mikaru is the one playing the piano.)

Ash: Finally!

Mikaru(to the audience): Did I mention that the writing sessions can get crazy? (gestures to the trashed meeting room as the piano music continues)

(When we rejoin Mikaru again, we find him in the hall of dressing rooms)

Mikaru: Down here is where we hang out while we are not doing a show... (he stops before a small door that reads "For the Pikachus") This is the room I share with Ash's Pikachu, Fuka. However, for some odd reason, it never compells Ash to call him by name; but he's okay with it. (he opens the door) Come on in! (the camera follows Mikaru inside. Aside from two tiny beds, there's various posters of Ash and various TV show posters on the walls, some in English, some in Japanese, and some in other languages.) We get posters of our favorite shows from all over the world, thanks to our fans. (a normal Pikachu sits before a TV, and switches it to the news.) This is Fuka, Ash's Pikachu. (the normal Pikachu shyly waves to the camera before Mikaru darts to a closet) And here is my closet. (he opens it, making various toys, clothes, and other items come crashing out of it) Which I need to clean. (Fuka laughs as Mikaru digs himself out of the clutter)

(We rejoin Mikaru in the hallway again, where he's sitting by the entrance to Misty's dressing room. The door is slightly ajar.)

Mikaru: And here's Misty's dressing room...(he opens the door the rest of the way, and we see mounds of paper, art books and art supplies strewn everywhere. a drawing board sits in a corner by a window; and judging from the paper and colored pencils on it, it seems like Misty was planning to return here later.)

(Before Mikaru can come inside the room, a wind gust from a second window makes the door close on Mikaru's tail, making him howl in pain. As we focus on the pained look on Mikaru's face, the door is pushed open a little, just enough to free Mikaru. He shoots the door an angry look.)

Mikaru: Let's leave a little surprise for Misty... (he grabs some paint and paintbrushes, and goes to work painting on the paper clipped to the drawing board. A few minutes later, we see him writing the last E in "MIKARU WUZ HERE" in big rainbow letters. Once done, he escapes back out to the hallway, where he stops at Brock's dressing room)

(We take one look in the room, and see enough guitars, other instruments and music paper to keep an orchestra happy.)

Mikaru: Now if I could find something small enough for me to hold... (he scampers inside and runs up one of the guitars to get to a desk, creating some odd notes on the way up. Once on the desk, he spots a box lying in the corner.) I now present... (he grabs a kazoo from the box) "The Kazoo Concerto in the key of J" (starts buzzing on it and dances across the desk.)

(May happens to hear all the buzzing as she walks by, and peeks inside)

May: That's not a concerto, Mikaru, it's noise! (she sets Mikaru on the ground before exiting)

Mikaru(imitating May's voice): "It's noise!" (as himself) she says... (he suddenly spots a whistle lying on a music stand) Hmm...

(After climbing up the stand, Mikaru grabs the whistle and attempts to play it, but all he gets at first are random notes. Just then, he sees a music book open to a whistle fingering chart next to some sheet music of a song, presumably the song Brock is currently learning.)

Mikaru: Oh, okay, now I know all the notes!

(Mikaru abandons his instrument for a moment and jumps on the sheet music. In addition to the printed music, there's also reminders in Brock's handwriting. Looking at these spurs Mikaru to grab a pencil...)

Mikaru: "The Golden Pikachu"...oh nice, a song about me!

(Mikaru draws a golf club by the time signature, 4/4)

Mikaru: FORE!!! (giggles as he draws Pikachu ears on all the notes) What do these mean? (studies two sharp signs in the key signature) Oh well... (he spots one of Brock's reminders next to a note with a sharp sign) Half hole note...what, as opposed to a whole hole note? (he sees another reminder: "Get louder here", which prompts him to write "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW???????" in capital letters. The next reminder simply reads "Breathe here", so Mikaru takes a deep breath and holds it for a moment before letting it go. On the next line, he sees the word "crescendo") And if I crescendon't? (writes his quip in the music)

(After a while, Brock's sheet music is covered in doodles and comments. Mikaru retrieves his whistle and attempts to make sense of the throughly written on music. It turns out that he can't play more than three notes at a time because he's giggling over his quips)

(Ash walks by the door, piqued by the laughter.)

Ash: What's so funny, Mikaru? (he takes the music from Mikaru and bursts out laughing at some of Mikaru's comments) Crescendo...and what if I crescendon't? (laughs) Moderato...expresso on aisle 3! (laughs again) Jumbo Largo? (chuckles) Cute...(laughs over a comment next to Presto: "Where's Chango?") Now I see why you can't play this, you wrote too many funny comments on here! (laughs some more)

Mikaru(over Ash's laughter): We'll be right back... (tiptoes out of the room)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands stepping to a conductor's podium as an orchestra tunes. The female announcer says 'You're watching The Ash and Pikachu Show'! as Ash raises his baton. One of the notes on Ash's sheet music is Pikachu's face.)

(When we return to Ash, a sudden off-key note catches Ash's attention. Mikaru pops up from the Pokeflute section and says "And now, back to the show!" before disappearing in the pit again.)

(We rejoin Mikaru in the hallway again)

Mikaru: Next is May's room... (we follow him into the room, where we see various set pieces, a vanity in one corner, costumes neatly hung up in the closet, and the mini stage in one corner. This spurs him to hop on it and kneel before a supposed balcony) What light, through yonder window breaks?

(a crash startles Mikaru as costumes rain on him)

Mikaru: I suppose it could break through that window... (shoves the costumes off of him, where he notices that he has on a pinstripe shirt and a small hat) Say... (he proceeds to tap dance behind May's changing screen, where he emerges in a stereotypical melodrama bad guy costume: the tux, smoothed back fur on his head, a cape, and a spindly fake mustache) Why do I have the urge to saw some innocent Pokemon in half or throw them on a railroad track when the train's coming?

(piqued by this idea, he grabs some plushie Pokemon and thread, binds a Torchic plushie in the thread, lays it on a model railroad track, and starts the train.)

Mikaru(in his best "bad guy" impression): Mwa-ha-ha-ha! (as a Torchic) Help me! (as his "bad guy" self) I've got you now!

(Suddenly, a Beautifly plushie flies down and "rescues" the "captured" Torchic just before the model train passes that spot)

Mikaru(as his "bad guy" self): Curses! Foiled again!

(We see that May was the one controlling the Beautifly plushie, as she has it in one arm while using the other hand to "free" the Torchic, Once finishes, she resumes control of the Beautifly again)

May(as a Beautifly): You may have been foiled, Sir Mikaru, but Torchic is safe with me!

(some applause is heard as Mikaru and May finish their sketch. Mikaru whirls around to see Ash in the doorway, applauding)

Ash: Bravo! That was great! (Mikaru and the plushies take a bow)

Mikaru(to May): Up for a sequel?

May: That was just one scene...we need to make it a whole play!

Ash: While you write it, May; I'll go see if anyone else wants to join in... (heads off down the hallway as May settles before her computer and begins to type a script)

(Several hours later, the printer whirs as May prints a script. A different role is highlighted on each copy)

May: I'll be sure to use this play in another show, Mikaru; you've got a tour to give!

Mikaru: Sure thing! (he removes his costume and heads down the hallway again, stopping at Dawn's room, where we find Dawn cleaning the floor) Here's Dawn's room...we'll look in another time, since Dawn's busy. (Dawn shyly waves at the camera as it turns to follow Mikaru again) Finally, we reach the dressing room of the star!

(We notice that the door Mikaru is showing us is marked with a star that has the name "Ash" in it)

Mikaru: Shall we have a look? (carefully opens the door and steps inside. Some items in the room include a vanity, a comfy chair before a TV, Ash's changing screen, some old scripts lying on the floor with some comic books, his Pokeflute case propping open the closet, where we see some of his costumes, including his costume from the old OP.) There you have it, the dressing room area. (enters the wings, crosses the bare stage while the lights are down, then enters the hallway at stage left). Most of what's back here is the crew's offices and the control room; and we're not allowed in there, expect for emergencies. There are a few places back here we can go in: such as the prop room (gestures to a room filled with various items) and the film vault a little further down the hallway...

Misty(offstage): Who wrote "Mikaru wuz here" on my drawing pad?

Mikaru: Uh oh...gotta run! Thanks for joining me! (runs away. Misty chases Mikaru all over the backstage area as the credits roll)

ANP #088: Mikaru's Christmas Wish



(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance(Christmas remix)-We see Pikachu dancing out on a festively decorated stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Kari looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Mikaru with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title and the words "Merry Christmas from" fly into place. The completed title card, which now reads "Merry Christmas from The Ash and Pikachu Show", slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: And Happy New Year, too! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onto the decorated stage, which has various furniture, a fireplace with stockings for the cast hanging from it, and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree by stage left.)

Ash: Thank you, and welcome to our special holiday show! (applause) We had so much fun with the one last year, we thought we'd do another this year! (more applause)

(Just then, Mikaru walks onstage and notices that he doesn't have a stocking hanging by the fireplace)

Mikaru: Wait a second, where's my stocking?

Ash: Huh?

Mikaru: What's Santa gonna bring me if I don't have a stocking?

Ash: Sure you have one! (he parts some greenery to reveal a stocking marked "Mikaru") See? (applause)

Mikaru: Whew...

Ash: Did you know that we had to actually save Christmas one year?

Mikaru: Did they make a cartoon special out of it?

Ash: Well--

Mikaru: Is it called "Ash Ketchum: The Trainer That Saved Christmas"? (laughter)

Ash: No, it's called something different... (threads a reel into the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Santa's Little Helpers!", part 1)

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands wiring some Christmas lights. After winding them through the house and outside, he plugs them in as the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" Some of the lights on the house's front form Pikachu's face)

(When we return to Ash, he's now in the process of setting up the Christmas tree...but a stray toy is on the floor, making Ash trip and fall. The announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as ornaments rain on Ash. One of the ball ornaments still in the box is Pikachu's face.)

(We join Ash and Mikaru backstage, where Misty is prepping the drawing board)

Mikaru: Lessee what Misty's up to tonight... (he climbs on the drawing board)

Misty: I'm going to see what happens as Brock goes to sleep on Christmas Eve... (goes to work)

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

(A while screen appears, presumably a blank piece of paper)

(Brock is drawn on the screen in some pajamas and colored, followed by the scene of a bedroom)

Brock: Ah, Christmas Eve... (he climbs into the bed and switches the lights off)

(We see Brock's dream balloon for a moment: guitars, other instruments, and the occasional Nintendo Wii are dancing in his head)

Misty(voiceover): Those sugarplums won't be dancing for very long... (Mikaru is drawn in the scene. He casts a faint glow in the dark room)

Mikaru: Okay, Ms. Animator, what would you like me to do?

Misty(voiceover): Go in the bathroom and make the sink drip.

Mikaru: Okay! (he strolls down the hall and into the bathroom, where he climbs on the counter and switches on the sink, making it drip. To amplify the dripping, Mikaru places a pie tin under the faucet, making the dripping noise audible all the way into Brock's room. After struggling to tune the dripping out, he gets up and heads for the bathroom.)

Brock: Memo to self: Remind Ash to turn the sink all the way off when he finishes brushing. (turns the sink off)

(Unbeknowst to Brock, Mikaru is still in the bathroom...Mikaru reaches to turn the sink back on, making it drip again.)

Brock: There...now to get back to sleep. (He is about to climb in bed when the dripping restarts.) Huh?

(Brock races back to the bathroom and tries to turn the sink off...but he unknowingly turns the knob the wrong way, making water spray in his face for a moment before he turns it the right way. He shoots the sink The Look as he returns to bed.)

(Later, Brock is snoozing peacefully...until the light starts to turn itself on and off repeatedly and a techno tune plays. After rubbing the sleep from his eyes, he notices that the pendulum on his mini clock is tied to the light switch. Mikaru is dancing to the music on the dresser.)

Mikaru: The system is down! The system is down! (continues)

(Brock groggily unhooks the rope as the light switches off, making it stay off. Mikaru notes this as Brock returns to bed.)

Mikaru: So much for the lightswitch rave...

Misty(voiceover): Then I have another idea... (draws a CD in Mikaru's paws) Put that in Brock's CD player and crank it up!

Mikaru: Sure! (he darts to Brock's nightstand, opens the CD player, and puts his CD in. Once finished, he turns the volume all the way up and presses PLAY.)

Misty(voiceover): Three...two...one...

("Funiculi Funicula" blares from the CD player, jarring Brock awake! He shuts it off before stuffing cotton in his ears)

Brock: You realize the sooner I get to sleep, the sooner it'll be Christmas? (the digital clock by the CD player reads "The End")

(When we return to the theater, the whole cast is gathered onstage. Ash is nearby, tuning his own acoustic guitar)

Ash: And now, a little carol singalong! Mikaru, you can start.

Mikaru: Okay, Maestro...I'll sing something and you join in if you know it! (Ash nods and waits for Mikaru to sing)

Dashing through the snow, (Ash starts to play the tune)
In a one horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way!

Bells on bobtail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing a slieghing song tonight!

Everyone: Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh, hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh...

(the scene segues into Dawn leading "Silent Night")

Everyone: Silent night,
Holy night,
All is calm,
All is bright...

Round yon virgin mother and child,
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace...

(the scene fades into Misty leading "Joy to the World")

Everyone: Joy to the world!
The Lord is come!
Let earth receive her king!...

(After a while, everyone is relaxing, tired from singing)

May: I don't think I can sing another note...

Brock: Besides, we still have Ash's cartoon to finish... (threads a reel into the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"Santa's Little Helpers", part 2)

(We join the entire cast onstage)

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

Mikaru: And I have a special wish for the season!

Ash: Oh?

Mikaru: I wish that everyone across the world has a very merry Christmas this year! (wild applause, which is still heard as a reprise of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" (Christmas remix) plays and the credits roll)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we're featuring... (Ash is distracted by an Eevee rubbing his leg. He picks it up and cradles it in his arms) this Pokemon, who can evolve in one of seven different ways!

(The audience murmurs as the seven Eeveelutions walk onstage. Vaporeon is first, then Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, Umbreon, Glaceon, and Ivyeon. May follows the parade of Eeveelutions, noting the Eevee in Ash's arms as the Eeveelutions make themselves comfy on the stage)

May: There you are! (Eevee smiles when she hears her master)

Ash: Want her? (offers the Eevee to May)

May: Sure! (takes the Eevee and cradles her in her arms) Want to watch something? (gestures to the screen)

Eevee: Vee!

(A few minutes later, May and Eevee watch as Ash makes some last minute preps on the projector. Once he threads a reel into the projector and starts it, he settles on the floor next to May and Eevee. Eevee cheers as the familiar WB shield appears on the screen...but a Lombre puppet suddenly pops up before the screen!)

Ash: Huh?

Lombre puppet: (singing to the music onscreen): The merry-go-round broke down,
As we went round and round,
Each time it missed,
We'd steal a kiss,
Cause the merry-go-round went
Oom pah pah, Oom pah pah, Oom pah oom pah Oom pah pah...

May: So that's how the song goes...

(Ash notices a familiar hand operating the puppet, so he peeks back behind the screen to see that Brock is the puppeteer making the Lombre sing)

Brock(singing as a Lombre): The merry-go-round broke down,
It made the darndest sound!
The lights went low,
We both said... (he turns to see Ash, then gasps as himself) Oh!

Ash: We really didn't need that little number... (yanks the puppet off Brock's hand. Before Brock can protest, he is yanked off by the cane, much to the Eeveelutions' and audience's applause)

May: Let's watch this instead... (threads another reel in the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-"The Battling Eevee Bros.", part 1)

(We return to the Pikachu's dressing room, where Mikaru is resting by his closet)

Misty(offstage): Mikaru, please clean your closet!

Mikaru: Okay! (he opens the closet door, only to be buried in a mess of toys and junk. After a few seconds, both Pikachus surface from the pile) This may take a while...

(We see a pair of live Ash hands brushing an Eevee. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash struggles to remove some matted fur. When he finally gets the mat out, we notice that it looks (more or less) like a Pikachu face.)

(When we return to Ash, the Eevee is sitting on his lap. As Mikaru pops in the scene, the Eevee coughs up a hairball to shoo him off. The announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as the hairball chases Mikaru. We notice that the hairball has Pikachu like "ears")

(We join Mikaru as he struggles to keep his closet closed, but when it bursts open again, several more Pikachus romp out of it)

Mikaru: I'll never get this clean at this rate... (laughter)

(We join May and Eevee backstage, where the Eeveelutions are gathered around Misty's easel. The Vaporeon is especially fond of how Misty is petting her, before the Glaceon decides he wants a turn and climbs on the paper)

Misty: And who might you be? (Dawn notes the Glaceon perched on the easel, and gives the Ivyeon a pet on the head)

Dawn: That would be Glaceon, the newly discovered Ice Eeveelution.

Glaceon: Glace!

Misty: Pleased to meet you, Glaceon.

Ivyeon: Iv!

Dawn: And this is Ivyeon, the new Grass Eeveelution. (giggles as Ivyeon draws a flower on the easel)

May: They all look beautiful!

Misty: Let's see how Brock would fare entertaining them all... (goes to work)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Brock: Please don't hit me with a pie...

Misty(voiceover): Okay!

(two pies come out of nowhere from opposite directions and hit Brock!)

(Brock cleans the pie off of him, so that he's clean again)

Brock: I thought I asked not to be hit with a pie!

Misty(voiceover): I didn't hit you with a pie, I hit you with two, so I still honored your request! (Brock sighs as the eight Eeveelutions are drawn around him, followed by the background of a house and some toys.)

Brock(to the Eeveelutions): Okay guys...play with these (gestures to the pile of toys) while I make you guys lunch... (disappears into the kitchen)

(A "Time Passes" card is seen. When we see Brock again, he's carrying a tray of chow dishes)

Brock: Okay! Lunch is read-AUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

(We see Vaporeon in the backyard, swimming, complete with a trail of muddy pawprints leading to the back door. Jolteon plays with a lightswitch, while Flareon is stoking a fire in the fireplace, giving Umbreon an opportunity to toast marshmellows. Espeon is having a ball making everything levitate, Ivyeon has wrapped vines around the furniture, and Glaceon has made a skating rink in the middle of the living room, which Eevee is skating on.)

Misty(voiceover): Moral of the story, kids: Never leave your Pokemon unattended. (some chow nuggets in Ivyeon's dish spell "The End")

(Vaporeon and Glaceon laugh as Misty draws the last scene)

Misty: You like that, huh? (draws a tiny crown of icicles on Glaceon.)

(Meanwhile, Espeon hears the band tuning...)

Espeon: Espi! Espi! (the other Eeveelutions run ontage to watch as Brock and the band tune up)

(music begins)

Ash: I got class, pananche, I'm in the groove ...

Brock: As long as you don't try to move!
I got style, grace and a crazy beat...

Ash: You sure are light on those two left feet, and we're,

Ash and Brock: Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!

Ash: I've got a problem I can't explain...

Brock: I'll be there with the plane!
I got moves, man...

Ash: You learned from me! I got a song to sing...

Brock: If you can find the key!

Ash and Brock: Whatever he's got, I've got more of!
But there's one thing we both are sure of, we're,

Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!

Brock: I'm stuck on a mountain without a hope...

Ash: I'll be there with the rope!

Brock: Like my duds?

Ash: Oh, you sure are cute!

Brock: They fit me better than a Master's suit!

Ash: There' nothing you do I don't do better,

Ash and Brock: But as long as we can stick together, we're

Friends for life, friends for life!
Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!
There's all kinds of people, but we'd rather be friends for life, you and me!

[dance break- the audience laughs at the silly dance Ash and Brock do]

Ash: Here we go! Friends for life,

Brock: Friends for life!

Ash and Brock: Through all kinds of trouble and struggle and strife!
There's all kinds of people, but we'd rather be friends for life, you and me!

Ash: If I'm in a jam...

Brock: Here I am, and if I get sick...

Ash: I'll fix it quick, and if I fall in love...

Brock: Hey! That's enough!

Ash and Brock: We're friends for life!

Ash(scatting): Shu-bee-dee-a-doo-a-dee-an-da-ohhhh yeah! (applause) Thank you! (he and Brock bow as Dawn starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"The Battling Eevee Bros.", part 2)

(We return to the Pikachus' dressing room again, where Mikaru is trying again to make the door close)

Mikaru: Almost have it...there...

(the closet door, although appearing to be closed, still has stuff leaking out of it)

Mikaru: Now to go see what Ash is doing... (just before he can leave the room, the closet bursts open, leaving him covered in toys again. The audience applauds as the scene fades out)

(We join Ash, May, and the Eeveelutions onstage)

Ash: Poor Mikaru...

May: Maybe next time he'll remember to keep his closet clean! (laughter)

Ash: Until then, see ya next time!

(The Eeveelutions proceed to dance to a reprise of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits roll)

The reason I had Brock sing the Looney Tunes theme (or rather, made a Lombre sing it) is a homage to Pokemon's former home on Kids WB

Mikaru: Okay! (he opens the closet door, only to be buried in a mess of toys and junk. After a few seconds, both Pikachus surface from the pile) This may take a while...

Mikaru cleaning his closet? What! Once again, the Shiny Pikachu is buried in toys.

That's Mikaru's special running gag...every character has one.

Since Kari is the focus of the next episode, that episode will show her gag.

The Eevee episode was good, but a little short to me. I liked the Brock comic though. I hope Kari's episode features a...

*lightning flash*Musical Duel!

i was really surprised to see i haven't posted a review to this season yet.

Sorrry, anyways read you latest and it was a real smile bender: Mikaru and the hairballs, Lombre and the looney Tunes theme (are those the words? i never knew!) The eeveelutions trashing the place whilst brock's busy (i especially like the Espeon having a ball part) and the Brock and Ash duet was really nice too! didn't catch any mistakes. Well there was one part that had me a little confused:


May: There you are! (Eevee smiles when she hears her master)

May's a she. Shouldn't that be

May: There you are! (Eevee smiles when she hears her mistress)?

The only confusing part was that during the duet, some lines weren't italicised and that left me a little off track following it.

HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

L@er!

Yes, those are part of the real words for the Looney Tunes song..I put it there as a homage to the WB being Pokemon's former home

I haven't read this since like season 1. It's fun to see how much it progressed. I really liked the drawing with all the Eeveelutions messing up Brock's house. Misty's "loophole" with hitting Brock with two pies made me crack up. I do admit, the duet was funny, especially in the beginning.

9th January 2007, 9:34 PM
ANP #090: Eyes Like Diamonds and Pearls



(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Dawn are with him. One by one, Misty, May, and Brock join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: She's not called a pearl of light for nothing! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(On Our Way interlude and applause as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show--

Dawn(offstage): Stars me!

(more applause as Dawn joins Ash onstage. Ash just sighs, annoyed that Dawn stole his introduction spiel)

Ash: I didn't know you were getting a show, Dawn...

Dawn: Brock's idea...as appreciation for me helping him out with the songs every night. (applause. Just then, Mikaru races onstage, with a penguin like Pokemon in hot pursuit!) Rainguin! Stop! (chases after the penguin Pokemon. Ash just reaches for the reel by Dawn's chair and threads it in the projector, oblivious to the crashing, pushing, and shoving from backstage)

Ash: Dawn and I actually go a little further back... (starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"Dawn of a New Day", part 1]

(We see a scene of Dawn settling before a piano, preparing to practice the song "I Believe" Just before she can play the first note, the phone rings.)

Dawn(on the phone): Hello? Who? You don't say! (hangs up)

Everyone else: Who was it?

Dawn: He didn't say. (laughter as the scene fades out)

[We see a pair of animated Ash hands skating on a pond. As he skates around and among the cast members, the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as the camera looks down on the frozen pond from above. The trail he skated forms Pikachu's face.]

[When we return to Ash, we see him having a snowball fight with everyone. The female announcer says "And now, back to our show!" as Ash gets creamed with a snowball, sending him flying in the snow. As Ash attempts to stand, the pseudo-snow angel he made on impact is Pikachu's face]

(We return to Dawn again, this time about to practice her song on her acoustic guitar. Just before she can play the first note, we hear a TWANG!)

Dawn: Of all the times for a string to break... (laughter as the scene fades out)

(We join Dawn and Misty backstage. Misty as at the drawing board, while Pikachu and Rainguin play nearby.)

Dawn: I hope Mikaru's all right...

Misty: He's just annoyed over his run-in with Rainguin earlier. (Sure enough, we hear mumbling from nearby as Mikaru watches Rainguin playing)

Dawn: He is a handful sometimes.

Misty: I'd love to know your secret... (goes to work)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Misty(voiceover): I'm feeling generous tonight, so I'm going to let Brock snooze for the duration of this comic. (the pencil draws in an easy chair and a blanket, followed by the background of a living room. Brock takes advantage of the easy chair and dozes off) The only catch is: You have to keep him from waking up... (the pencil draws Dawn in the scene and colors her)

Dawn: Easy enough...

Misty(voiceover): Commencing... (the pencil draws Pikachu and Rainguin in the scene) now.

(Brock yawns and covers himself in his blanket as he adjusts the chair's recliner)

Dawn: Sweet dreams, Brock. (Brock just smiles as he snoozes.)

(Dawn is about to settle in with a book when she hears a crash from the kitchen. Just then, Pikachu and Rainguin parade in the room playing makeshift instruments, complete with Pikachu banging on a frying pan. Suddenly, Pikachu notices Brock sleeping and whispers "Sh!" to Rainguin. The two Pokemon tiptoe away, prompting Dawn to settle in and read again)

Dawn: That was easy... (turns a page)

Misty(voiceover): Famous last words... (the pencil draws a string of party crackers by Rainguin.)

(Piqued by the crackers, Rainguin pulls the string on one, making it crack open with a loud pop! Fascinated by the sudden apearance of toys from the cracker, Rainguin pulls all the crackers' strings at once, making a series of loud pops occur, making Brock wince with every pop and snapping Dawn from her novel. She blows it off as the two Pokemon giggle.)

(Just then, Pikachu finds a party horn and blows on it, prompting Dawn to snatch it from him and shepherd the two Pokemon close to her)

Dawn: Listen, you guys...Brock's trying to take a snooze, okay? (Pikachu and Rainguin nod) If you two wake him up, you're not going to like the consequences. (Pikachu swallows hard) So can you two play quietly for a little while? (Pikachu and Rainguin nod) Remember, don't wake Brock up, or else. (Pikachu and Rainguin nod, then romp off to another room, leaving Dawn to read and Brock to snooze.)

(Later, Pikachu and Rainguin are coloring, when Rainguin shows Pikachu his masterpiece: a very crude stick figure of Pikachu. Angered by the drawing, Pikachu is about to grab the paper and tear it to shreds when he spots Rainguin about to bang on the frying pan again, in full view of Dawn)

Pikachu: Pikachu! (Rainguin looks over) Chupi pi (imitating Dawn's voice) "Pika pi Pipika, pika chu". (as himself) Pika pika "pika chu" pi?

Rainguin: Guin...

Pikachu: Pika pi chu, pi. (Rainguin puts the pan down and trudges back to the pile of crayons and paper)

(A little while later, Pikachu and Rainguin giggle as they run about with light bulbs, but Rainguin trips, making his pile of lightbulbs shatter and making Brock start to stir. Pikachu panics and starts rocking the easy chair)

Pikachu(singing to the tune of "Rock a Bye, Baby"): Pika pi Pipika, pika pi chu, pika pi chu, pika pika chu... (hums the tune a bit longer as he rocks the easy chair, until he's sure Brock is sleeping again.)

Dawn: That was close... (we see the last page of Dawn's book, which reads "The End")

(Rainguin laughs as Misty draws the last scene. Ash also arrives backstage with a trumpet in one hand)

Ash: May I request your help with the musical number?

Misty: Sure!

Ash: Great! Just grab an instrument and come on! (Misty follows Ash onstage, pausing to grab a saxophone on the way out)

(When Misty and Ash arrive onstage, we see Brock and May warming up on trombone and clarinet, respectively. Dawn and Mikaru stand onstage, awaiting the cue to start)

Ash: Ready, everybody? (everyone nods. Ash starts snapping briskly to count the drummer off) And a one, two, three, four!

(A brisk jazz beat begins, which May improvises a solo to before the other instruments join in)

Mikaru(singing over the band and the cast): Oh when the saints, go marchin' in, oh when the saints go marchin' in...oh how I want to be in that number, when the saints go marchin' in!

(A spotlight appears on Ash as he leads off the solos, prompting Dawn to dance. Mikaru decides to dance when Misty solos, then he and Dawn dance together as both Brock and May solo. When the piano player solos, Dawn dances on her own, before both of them take a break for the bassist and the drummer to solo.)

(Once the drummer finishes, the cast joins in with the band again.)

Mikaru: Oh when the saints, go marchin' in, oh when the saints go marchin' in...oh how I want to be in that number, when the saints go marchin' in!

Dawn: Oh when the saints, go marchin' in, oh when the saints go marchin' in...oh how I want to be in that number, when the saints go marchin'-- Come on, everybody, sing!

Mikaru: Oh when the saints, go marchin' in, oh when the saints go marchin' in...oh how I want to be in that number, when the saints...

Dawn: Go...

Mikaru: Mar-

Dawn: Ching,

Dawn and Mikaru: INNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!! (wild applause as everyone bows. Rainguin waddles to the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"Dawn of a New Day", part 2]

(We join Dawn again, looking for an instrument to practice on, until she spots Ash's trumpet from earlier. She tries to play it, but the resulting noise she makes is anything but enjoyable.)

Ash: I think you need lessons first. (laughter as Dawn rolls her eyes and the scene fades out)

(We join Dawn, Ash, Pikachu, and Rainguin onstage)

Ash: Betcha didn't know I was a good trumpet player, didja? (wild cheers)

Dawn: That was a fun musical number, wasn't it?

Ash: I would do an encore, but we're out of time for tonight. (the audience groans, until Rainguin offers Ash the trumpet again) Okay, okay, you talked me into it...see ya next time!

(Dawn, Pikachu, and Rainguin dance to a solo trumpet version of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits roll)

This was rather fun to read, FlamingRuby! I was wondering if Rainguin is Pochama's english name or a maid up pokemon...if so you missed out a bit of description. Well, that 's the only problem i saw.


Kari(on the phone): Hello? Who? You don't say! (hangs up)

Everyone else: Who was it?

Kari: He didn't say. (laughter as the scene fades out)

Good stuff, dude! That was really good! Dry, but good!

Other parts i enjoyed were Pikachu imitating Kari, Pikachu and Rainguin's attempts to wake up Brock and the song! Really original.

Well, i gotta run. Catch ya at your next release!

I didn't exactly see a Musical Duel in that episode, but eh, it was good nonetheless. But why didn't you call Pochama by it's proper name? You might have confused some people...

Well, it is getting close to the English release, so I thought I'd share my prediction for Pochama's English name (Rainguin)

The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: I predict you'll enjoy the show! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

("On Our Way" interlude as Ash runs onstage and waves to the applauding crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonights show...

Offstage female voice: ...stars the best psychic sibling duo there ever was!

Offstage male voice: They've become superstars in their hometown of Mossdeep City and beyond...

Offstage female voice: ...and now they're here to entertain you! (applause as Liza and Tate appear in spotlights on either side of Ash. Liza is to Ash's left, and Tate to his right)

Ash: ...and they took the words right out of my mouth. (laughter)

Liza: We knew what you were going to say to introduce us...

Tate: ...before you even came onstage! (Ash is shocked at this)

Ash: Okay then... (he thinks of something to stump the two siblings) What do you predict will happen in the next five minutes?

Liza: Brock will try to do something annoying...

(at that second, Brock zips onstage singing very fast gibberish to the tune of "Pokemon Johto")

Tate: ...Then the cane will yank him off...

(Sure enough, the cane appears and yanks Brock offstage)

Liza: ...and the projector will show the first cartoon. (she motions for Tate to join her at the screen as the projector starts on its own)

[CARTOON-"It's Still Rocket Roll to Me!"]

(We see a pair of live Ash hands focusing on a crystal ball for Liza and Tate. Liza looks at the camera, smiles and says "'The Ash and Pikachu Show'..." and Tate adds "will return after these messages." The swirling air in the crystal ball forms Pikachu's face.)

(When we return to Ash, we see him trying to levitate Pikachu. Liza smiles and says "We now return..." and Tate finishes with " to 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Pikachu hovers in the air for a moment. The camera focuses on him as Pikachu hovers in the air)

(We rejoin Ash, Liza and Tate backstage as Misty appears at the drawing board)

Liza: Misty, we will predict...

Tate: What happens in your comic...

Liza: before you draw it!

Misty: Oh? Try me... (goes to work)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Misty(voiceover): Okay, make a prediction...

Liza(voiceover): Brock will get hit with a cream pie...

(a pie appears out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)

(Brock cleans the pie off of him)

Tate(voiceover): And then he'll get hit by two pies...

(two pies come from opposite directions and hit Brock with two SPLUT!s)

(The pencil draws the background of an amusement park)

Brock: Please don't let there be any more pies... (he runs to get in line for the roller coaster)

(The roller coaster starts and climbs the big dip...

Liza(voiceover): There will be a huge pie at the bottom of the dip.

(Sure enough, Brock spots a giant pie far below)

Brock: I have a bad feeling about this...

(The roller coaster zooms down the hill, and we hear a SPLUT! on impact)

Brock: Whoever's making all these predictions sure is accurate! (the impact the coaster train made in the pie spells "The End")

(Liza laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

Tate: And he lived splutfully ever after! (runs to join Liza before the screen, but Ash snaps for their attention)

Ash: I predict that you'll love this song that Brock and the band have prepared for you!

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

Brock: Struck by stormy seas and tossed all around,
And it seems as if we'll lose now...
We will shake that off and look for love in our hearts
That lies inside of us...

We will stand up and defend the promise we made
As many times we need to do so!
We bathe in the light, and dance and splash everywhere,
It feels so beautiful...

As we rise into the sunshine,
We are hot! We are hot! We are hot!
We lift up our voices, singing;
Flying high! Flying high! Flying high!

Fly away now...fly away now!

Our excited heartbeat, is consumed by a lovely melody...
Our heartbeat pulses with pride, and now we understand the only truth!
The light's reflection comes, straight from the mirror in the clouds...
Our restless and strong heartbeat is consumed and strengthened by the power of love!
And it will spread out towards our dream of a perfect harmony!

I stretch out my hand across this dark and broken world
I welcome all of you to this place.
Although it hurt at first, I have dealt with the pain
So was that really love?

A rushing wind is blowing,
Really quick! Really quick! Really quick!
I made it through the wild squall,
I am strong! I am strong! I am strong!

We will be strong...we will be strong!

Everybody's heartbeat together forms a rainbow of harmony...
Can't you hear the bell's lovely ring? Our light will shine forever and always!
We will be searching for the return of our paradise,
The heartbeat that we feel will be consumed by the power of love!
And it will spread out toward our dream of a perfect harmony!

Our excited heartbeat, is consumed by a lovely melody...
Our heartbeat pulses with pride, and now we understand the only truth!
The light's reflection comes, straight from the mirror in the clouds...
Our restless and strong heartbeat is consumed and strengthened by the power of love!

Everybody's heartbeat together forms a rainbow of harmony...
Can't you hear the bell's lovely ring? Our light will shine forever and always!
We will be searching for the return of our paradise,
The heartbeat that we feel will be consumed by the power of love!
And it will spread out toward our dream of a perfect harmony!
We will rise again with this dream of a perfect harmony!

(wild applause as Brock and the band bow)

Liza: Your prediction was right, Ash!

Tate: And now, time for the other cartoon. (the projector starts on its own)

[CARTOON-"Solid as a Solrock!"]

(We rejoin Ash, Pikachu, Liza, and Tate onstage)

Ash: Well, thanks for joining us tonight...

Liza: Shall we dance?

(Ash, Pikachu, Liza and Tate dance to a reprise of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits roll)

ANP #092: Just a Normal-type Day!



(Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash, Mikaru, and Whitney are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Dawn, and Brock join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Who said anything was normal around here? (smiles over a rimshot as the scene fades out)

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

Ash: Thank you all! Tonight we're featuring a lovely lady who may seem normal, but her battling skill is anything but! (applause) That said, please welcome the lovely Whitney to the stage.

(a spotlight appears at stage left, but nobody enters, causing murmurs to drift through the audience. Misty peeks onstage, curious as to what's wrong.)

Misty: What's the matter?

Ash: I have a feeling Whitney forgot that she was on... (Brock joins Misty in the wings)

Brock: Or worse, forgot how to even GET to the theater...

(We cut to a location somewhere in downtown Celadon, where Whitney is checking a map)

Whitney: Now, wait a second...I thought the Theater Celadon was supposed to be here...so what am I doing here in the historic district?

(Whitney's Clefairy turns the map in Whitney's hands right-side-up, showing us (the TV audience), that Whitney is too far away in relation to the theater)

Whitney: Oh, I was supposed to go THAT way... (starts off down the street, Clefairy in tow.)

(Back in the theater, Ash is pacing the stage, awaiting any word on Whitney's location)

Ash: Where IS she?...

Brock(to Misty): Told'ja she's lost... (Misty smiles and heads backstage, when May arrives)

May: What's the matter?

Brock: The leader of Goldenrod City's Gym, Whitney, was supposed to join us tonight, but her memory's bad...

Audience: HOW BAD IS IT???

Brock: Watch this and see for yourself! (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-"A Goldenrod Opportunity!"]

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands consulting a map of Goldenrod. As Ash struggles to make sense of the symbols, the female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" Ash's location on the map is marked by a Pikachu face)

(When we return to Ash, we find him following his planned route on the map. The female announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as the view twists and turns about. The symbol marking Ash's destination is Pikachu's face)

(We rejoin Ash onstage, still pacing the floor)

Ash: How hard is it to not find this place?

(a map of Celadon blips onscreen, with the theater marked as a star)

Ash(voiceover): From the Magnet Train terminal (the terminal is marked on the map, with a mark of Ash's face next to it) head due north untill you reach the department store...(the marking of Ash's face moves north until the department store is marked by some shopping bags and the sound of crowds. A red dotted line represents Ash's path) then take a right and go east a few blocks (the Ash face moves in the specified direction) then head south past the post office (the Ash face moves the specified direction and stops at the post office, which is marked by some letters) and take a left, and you're here! (a 'ta-da!' stinger plays as the Ash face arrives at the theater)

Brock: You must've forgotton how bad Whitney's memory is...

Ash: Don't remind me. (laughter) It's bad enough that Whitney's going to be a while...

(Back with Whitney, she has finally retraced her steps back to where she started: the Magnet Train Terminal)

Whitney: This time, I'll use the map Ash gave me! (brandishes a map similar to the one Ash drew earlier) Let's see here...

(the din of car horns honking snaps Whitney back to reality: we notice she's standing in an intersection!)

(After scrambling back on a sidewalk, Whitney continues northward, obviously engrossed in her map)

(Back in the theater, the cast is trying to fight off the boredom they have in waiting for Whitney's arrival: Ash is still pacing the stage, Brock practices on his guitar, and Pikachu plays Solitaire in one corner.)

Brock: Any word yet? (plays a riff)

Ash: Nope...

Pikachu: Cha... (puts the cards away and trudges backstage, where Misty is doodling on the drawing board)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen and colored)

Brock: Please don't let there be any pies...

(Brock braces himself for a pie, but no pie appears)

Misty(voiceover): Actually, Maestro... (the pencil draws Brock's guitar in his hand) I gave you something challenging to practice.

Brock: Cool. (he tunes up, then starts sightreading the song)

(Before long, Brock begins playing the famous "Maleguena" riff, slowly at first, then getting faster until he hears a TWANG!)

Brock: Oh great... (fixes the string and continues strumming briskly until a TWANG! breaks his concentration. After fixing that string, he prepares to play again until a TWANG! is heard. He finally sets his instrument aside after fixing that string and goes to fix lunch)

(After fixing a sandwich, Brock starts to open the window, only to have the pull ring break with a TWANG! After fixing that, he attempts to play a banjo, only to have another string break with a TWANG!)

Brock: Is today National String Breaking Day or something? (returns to his guitar and simply plucks a string. The vibrations of the string spell "The End")

(Pikachu giggles as Misty draws the last scene)

(Back onstage, Ash is getting anxious)

Ash: What's taking so long?

Offstage crew member: Telephone, Ash!

Ash: Coming! (to Pikachu) Start the cartoon while I'm on the phone. (Pikachu nods and starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"A Dairy Tale Ending!"]

(We join Ash and Pikachu onstage)

Ash(to the audience): Look, I'm sorry that tonight didn't work out...

Whitney(offstage): Here I am!

(wild applause as Whitney enters and joins Ash and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Okay! Now we can get started! Tonight's show... (the scene fades out over Ash's talking and the credits roll silently on a black background)

ANP #093: Often Duplicated!


Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash, Duplica, and Ditto are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Am I seeing double? (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

("On Our Way" interlude as Ash runs onstage as waves to the crowd.)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight's show--

(Before Ash can finish, we see a second Ash walk onto the stage.)

Duplicate #1: Thank you! Tonight we’re--

(Before the second Ash can finish, a third Ash walks on stage.)

Duplicate #2: Thank you! Tonight’s guests--

Ash: Hey! Who are you?

Duplicate #3: I’m Ash Ketchum.

Duplicate #2: No! I am Ash Ketchum!

(Up in the wings, we see Brock and Misty starring blankly at the stage as the duplicates argue with the original Ash)

Misty: Hey Brock. Is it just me, or are there three Ashes down there?

Brock: It’s not just you, because I see them too. (Dawn walks by, and notes Misty and Brock in the wings)

Dawn: Hey Misty, Brock, nice special effects.

Brock: They would be, if they were special effects.

Dawn: You mean to say that there are actually three Ashes down there?

Misty: Yeah…

(Back on stage, Ash and the duplicates are still bickering on who the original Ash Ketchum is)

Ash: I AM THE REAL ASH KETCHUM!!!!!!

Duplicate #1: You wish!

Duplicate #2: And you both wish you were me.

Ash: Wait a second. I know who you two really are!

Duplicate #2: Finally, you get the fact that I’m Ash Ketchum.

Ash: No, you two are Jessie and James in disguise, trying to steal my show again!

Duplicate #1: Try again.

Ash: Oh. You two are my guest stars.

Duplicate #2: Finally, you get it!

Ash: Ok then. Everyone meet Duplica and her Ditto. (The first duplicate rips off a disguise revealing Duplica while the second transforms into Ditto) Welcome to the show! (applause)

(We go back to the wings, where Brock, Misty, and Dawn look relieved)

Brock: Well I’m glad that’s over.

Misty: Yeah. One Ash is enough.

Dawn: How do you know Duplica?

Misty: I’ll show you. (runs down to the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-“Ditto’s Mysterious Mansion”, part 1)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands picking up Duplica’s Ditto. When Ash holds Ditto up, it turns into water, drips out of Ash’s hands, runs into another room, and locks the door. The female announcer says “You’re watching ‘The Ash and Pikachu Show’!” as the door unlocks. Upon walking in, Ash is drenched with water by Ditto. As Ash chases Ditto into another room, we see a puddle on the ground that resembles Pikachu’s face.)

(When we return to Ash, we see he’s found the mischievous Ditto drawing on Misty’s easel with the magic pencils. Ash sneaks up to Ditto and tries to tackle Ditto. As Ash flies through the air, Ditto hears Ash and jumps out of the way, making Ash land upon the floor, sending papers into the air. The female announcer says “And now, back to the show!” as Ditto jumps on Ash and draws a mustache on him. As the last paper falls, we see Ditto drawing of a Pikachu face on the easel wink.

(We join Duplica in a hallway looking for her Ditto)

Duplica: Ditto! Where are you?

(As she turns a corner, she collides with Mikaru, making him drop his papers, pencils, ect.)

Duplica: I’m terribly sorry. (starts to pick up Mikaru’s items)

Mikaru: No, no. It was my fault. (helps to pick up his stuff)

Duplica: Where are you off to in such a hurry, and with all this art supplies?

Mikaru: I’m taking this stuff to Misty so she can start her doodles. Do you want to come along?

Duplica: Sure.

(Mikaru and Duplica start to head over to Misty, where she sits in her chair playing with Ditto.)

Duplica: Ditto! (picks up Ditto and puts Ditto on her shoulder)

Misty: Ditto came over here to keep me company while I waited for my supplies to get here.

Mikaru: Well here they are. (places the supplies next to Misty’s easel)

Misty: Well then, let’s begin.

Ditto: Alright!

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

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

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

Misty(voiceover): What shall we do to Brock today?

Brock: Nothing painful please.

Misty: Good idea Brock, but how?

Duplica: Oh, I know how to! (whispers idea to Misty)

Misty: I like that idea!

Brock: Uh oh.

Misty(voiceover): According to Duplica’s plan, we need a Nurse Joy… (draws a Nurse Joy about fifty feet away from Brock)

Brock: Hello my love! (runs for Nurse Joy, only to run into a wall jetting out of the ground.

Brock: Hey! What gives?

Misty(voiceover): If you want Nurse Joy, you’ll have to work for her. (weird shaped rocks jet out of the wall)

Duplica: Climb Brock! Climb!

Brock: I’ll do whatever it takes! (starts up the wall. As he’s half way up the rocks start to pop in and out of the wall) Oh boy… (continues up the wall quickly. After a minute or two he reaches the top of the wall)

Duplica: Good job Brock!

Brock: Now how do I get down?

Misty(voiceover): With the zip line. (draws a zip line leading to a little pit filled with mud and covered with barb wire)

Brock: To the next obstacle! (darts toward the zip line and goes down. About a quarter of the way down he almost gets hit by an Ice Beam attack)

Brock: What was that for?

Misty(voiceover): You have to dodge the attacks while zipping down to the next obstacle. (draws Ash’s Glalie and Pikachu, May’s Combusken and Munchlax, and her own Starmie and Azurill.

Brock(sarcasticly): Great!

(As Brock zips down Azurill uses Water Gun, but is off a little bit. Then Munchlax uses Solarbeam , but Brock dodges by swinging forward, speeding him up. Next up is Pikachu as he uses Thunder and hits Brock directly.)

Duplica: That has got to hurt!

Brock: It did! Well I’m almost there. (Combusken uses Fire Spin at Brock, but Brock dodges, slowing himself down by swinging his legs over the rope. As Starmie is the only one left, it uses Swift, but also dodged by Brock swinging himself all the way over the rope and back down. After that, Brock has made it to the mud pit)

Mikaru: Awesome job dodging that last attack by Starmie, Brock!

Brock: Thank you.

Misty: Wait. What’s this? (three more zip lines are made, with 3 Brocks on them almost done with the zip line) Better hurry Brock, before one of the duplicates beat you to Nurse Joy!

Brock: Ok!

(Brock jumps into the mud pit and starts to crawl beneath the barb wire. Crawling as fast as he can, Brock makes in a quarter of the way when his doppelgangers jump in the mud and start to crawl. Seeing this, Brock starts crawling faster, getting mud in his clothes, on his face, in his mouth, and out of the pit. Then he made it to the end of the pit and saw hundreds of tires lying on the ground.)

Misty: Quick! Get through the tires before your clones arrive!

Brock: Got it! (Brock starts through the tires putting his feet in every tire. But he’s not even an eighth of the way through the tires when the duplicates start the tires.)

Brock: Must go faster! (he starts going as fast as he can only to trip over a tire.) But not too fast or I’ll keep tripping.

(Brock gets up and starts speeding up on the tires, as he is getting used to it. He finally finishes the tire track with the finish line just ahead. Brock sprints as fast as possible as his clones are just behind. Now as the duplicates start to run they are just beside him. As they reach the finish line a photo is taken to decide the winner)

Misty: The winner is…

Duplica: Brock!

Brock: YES! I won! Now for my prize… (he walks over to Nurse Joy)

Brock: And now my dear, we can finally be together!

(Brock starts to hugs Nurse Joy, but then the Nurse Joy starts transforming into Ditto!)

Brock: WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Brock starts to cry)

Mikaru: Don’t cry Brock. At least your stronger than you were before.

Brock: I DON’T WANT STRENGTH, I WANT LOVE!!!!!

(As Brock walks away, we see his puddle of tears spell “The End”

(Duplica, Ditto, and Mikaru start to laugh as Misty finishes the last scene).

Duplica: That was hilarious!

Misty: Do you want it?

Duplica: Yes please!

Misty: Here you go. (Misty signs her name on the paper, tears it off, and gives it to Duplica)

Duplica: Thanks. What to do now?

Brock(offscreen): GAH!

(Everyone races onstage to find Brock and band looking agape at Brock's place onstage, where we note that his guitar is missing)

Brock: Where'd my guitar go?

Ash: I know just the person that could help! (he holds his hand in the air, then sings in a noticeably older sounding voice): Ai-yai-yai, I'm your little Beautifly! (Ash's hand begins to glow) Green, black, and blue; make the colors in the sky!

(MUSIC-"Beautifly" (instrumental))

(We see a glowing outline of Ash's body against the background of Beautifly wings. As Ash hangs in this position, his torso begins to glow purple, and a silver and purple shirt appears on him. Next, a checkered jacket appears over that in a flash of purple. Next, we look at Ash's legs as sparkling black pants appear on his legs in a flash of blue, and silver shoes appear on his feet. The view next shifts to Ash's head, where we see his eyes finally open. His normally black hair begins to lengthen and turn silver. A white rose appears in the right pocket of the jacket, which the young man holds in one hand as he poses for the audience.)

(Music cut)

(murmurs go through the audience as Ash appears as Kochou)

Duplica: No way! I thought Kochou only existed on TV!

(music begins)

Ash(singing as Kochou): Someone here is the culprit!
When I find out, you're through!
Someone here is the culprit!
Who, who, who?

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you! (Who could be the guilty one?)

One of you pulled a fast one,
Went and made a switch!
One of you pulled a fast one,
Which, which, which?

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you! (Who could be the guilty one?)

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you! (Who could be the guilty one?)

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
Could it be you?

(Nincadas chirp as everyone awaits the culprit coming foward)

Dawn: Keep singing, Kochou!

Ash(as Kochou): Okay!

(the music to the chorus begins)

Ash(singing as Kochou) It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you! (Who could be the guilty one?)

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?

It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it?
It could be you! (Who could be the guilty one?)

(In the wings, Ditto spots a CD player and presses the STOP button...)

Ash(singing as Kochou): It could be you, couldn't it, couldn't it? (he realizes the music stopped as he speaks as himself) Hey! Who turned the music off? (touches his pendant, making his costume disappear. Ditto turns into the projector and starts)

[CARTOON-"Ditto's Mysterious Mansion", part 2]

(We join Ash, Ditto, and Duplica onstage)

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

Brock(offscreen): Found it!

(applause as Brock appears with his guitar)

Ash: Then let's dance!

(Brock starts to play "Pikachu's Tap Dance". Ash, Duplica and Ditto dance to the song as the credits roll)

I HAVE RETURNED!

…Aheh heh heh… ^^; Anyway, I see that this season’s just as fun as the ones before it. Mikaru’s a great new character; I loved his debut. I also really like the Musical Duel segments—and if Brock and Kari ever duel with bass guitars, I’ll be very happy indeed. =D The Pac-Man tribute, the Skitty episode, the Chatot episode and the behind-the-scenes episode were great, too.

OH. And bonus points for referencing “What Would You Do?” =D


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

Brock: Okay, pencil...what do you have in store for me tonight?

Coco(voiceover): SPLUT!!! (laughs)

Brock: I didn't ask y- (a pie comes out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT! Coco laughs as Brock cleans the pie off) Okay, pencil...let me tell the story for once.


(a hand appears and plops Brock in a chair overlooking a crowd)

Brock: Hey, this is nice... (relaxes in the chair as it lifts him up so he can see the crowd better...untill he notices three pies in front of him)

Misty(voiceover): Any last words?

Brock: ::gulp:: Uh oh...

(the crowd roars as three SPLUTs are heard. When we see Brock again, he's smothered in whipped cream)

Winona(voiceover): And for extra humiliation...

(A Swellow squawk is heard overhead, and a green splotch lands on Brock from above)


Mikaru: These writing sessions are known to get crazy sometimes...

(a ragtime piano tune begins as we see Ash wearing a Mario hat, paper airplanes zipping everywhere, Ash flipping a paper football over a writer's fingers, a male writer slashing some rejected scripts with a fake Master Sword, darts hitting a dartboard, some elaborate paper airplanes zipping about, the writers shooting Pikachu a disgusted look over some charred pages, Ash unknowingly hit with a pie, the writers gimacing over a 404 page, Ash clicking to get rid of popups, Ash pieing a female writer, Ash and the other writers looking unamused at a male writer's Rocket costume, Ash improvising a Pokeflute solo over the piano, the writers looking bemused over some home movies of Ash, Ash and the writers having a singalong while Ash plays Brock's guitar, Brock reclaiming the guitar from Ash, Ash and the witers doing a conga line, Ash playing a harmonica, Ash and the writers doing a chorus line, Ash playing a fiddle, one of the writers attempting to play a fiddle (much to the other writers' and Ash's chagrin), Ash and the writers playing volleyball in the meeting room, the printer spitting out paper, Ash and the writers making origami out of the extra printer paper, Ash writing blank lines on a list while a writer isn't looking, Ash doodling a mustache on a picture of Misty, Ash cleaning the picture off at warp speed before an irate Misty, one of the male writers mowing the carpet in the meeting room, a female writer playing one of Ash's electric guitars really badly, Ash using a computer mouse as a walkie talkie, a male writer trying to ride a unicycle, Ash attempting to spin dash, a female writer posing with a fake Chaos Emerald, Ash building a model of the Pokemon League out of soda cans, Ash hiding a rubber Spinarak in a drawer, one of the female writers freaking out over said Spinarak, the writers splattering paint on the walls, Kari watching, unamused, as Ash and the writers wrap everything in the meeting room with toliet paper, and to top it off, Charmander setting the script on fire. As Ash triumphantly holds the completed new script over his head, we see that Mikaru is the one playing the piano.)

Ash: Finally!

Mikaru(to the audience): Did I mention that the writing sessions can get crazy? (gestures to the trashed meeting room as the piano music continues)


(Mikaru abandons his instrument for a moment and jumps on the sheet music. In addition to the printed music, there's also reminders in Brock's handwriting. Looking at these spurs Mikaru to grab a pencil...)

Mikaru: "The Golden Pikachu"...oh nice, a song about me!

(Mikaru draws a golf club by the time signature, 4/4)

Mikaru: FORE!!! (giggles as he draws Pikachu ears on all the notes) What do these mean? (studies two sharp signs in the key signature) Oh well... (he spots one of Brock's reminders next to a note with a sharp sign) Half hole note...what, as opposed to a whole hole note? (he sees another reminder: "Get louder here", which prompts him to write "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW???????" in capital letters. The next reminder simply reads "Breathe here", so Mikaru takes a deep breath and holds it for a moment before letting it go. On the next line, he sees the word "crescendo") And if I crescendon't? (writes his quip in the music)

(After a while, Brock's sheet music is covered in doodles and comments. Mikaru retrieves his whistle and attempts to make sense of the throughly written on music. It turns out that he can't play more than three notes at a time because he's giggling over his quips)

(Ash walks by the door, piqued by the laughter.)

Ash: What's so funny, Mikaru? (he takes the music from Mikaru and bursts out laughing at some of Mikaru's comments) Crescendo...and what if I crescendon't? (laughs) Moderato...expresso on aisle 3! (laughs again) Jumbo Largo? (chuckles) Cute...(laughs over a comment next to Presto: "Where's Chango?") Now I see why you can't play this, you wrote too many funny comments on here! (laughs some more)


(We see a pair of live Ash hands brushing an Eevee. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash struggles to remove some matted fur. When he finally gets the mat out, we notice that it looks (more or less) like a Pikachu face.)

(When we return to Ash, the Eevee is sitting on his lap. As Mikaru pops in the scene, the Eevee coughs up a hairball to shoo him off. The announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as the hairball chases Mikaru. We notice that the hairball has Pikachu like "ears")

(Random mental commentary upon reading that: The Hairball doesn’t like the Wailmer Pail! The Hairball attacked!

…Yeah, my mind is…*spacey noise* *clears throat* …Yeah. XD)


Misty(voiceover): Okay, make a prediction...

Liza(voiceover): Brock will get hit with a cream pie...

(a pie appears out of nowhere and hits Brock with a SPLUT!)

(Brock cleans the pie off of him)

Tate(voiceover): And then he'll get hit by two pies...

(two pies come from opposite directions and hit Brock with two SPLUT!s)

(The pencil draws the background of an amusement park)

Brock: Please don't let there be any more pies... (he runs to get in line for the roller coaster)

(The roller coaster starts and climbs the big dip...

Liza(voiceover): There will be a huge pie at the bottom of the dip.

(Sure enough, Brock spots a giant pie far below)

Brock: I have a bad feeling about this...

(The roller coaster zooms down the hill, and we hear a SPLUT! on impact)

Brock: Whoever's making all these predictions sure is accurate! (the impact the coaster train made in the pie spells "The End")

(Liza laughs as Misty draws the last scene)

Tate: And he lived splutfully ever after! (runs to join Liza before the screen, but Ash snaps for their attention)


So yeah, Season 4’s going great. ^^ Keep on trucking…and splutting. XP

ANP #094: The Wings of Love



Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Kari tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash and Mikaru are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: And there's two perfect girls for me! (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

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

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, on the night of love, we want to share some of our own romantic moments--

Mikaru(offstage): Just no mushy stuff, okay? (laughter as Mikaru walks onstage)

Ash: Okay, there's no mushy stuff.

Mikaru: No sappy violin music?

Ash: No sappy violin music, I promise. (laughter as we see Brock trudge backstage with a violin and bow tucked in one arm)

Mikaru: No opera singing?

Ash: Relax, I don't think Brock can sing like that, anyway....

(we hear a pitch pipe from offstage)

Brock(offstage): Pa, pa-pa-pa...la-la-la-LAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! (Ash and Mikaru wince at the awful singing as the audience laughs)

Ash(yelling offstage): Brock, you're flat! (more laughter)

(we hear an orchestra tuning as Brock appears in a spotlight)

Mikaru: Oh please....

(the orchestra starts to play a number from "Carmen")

Brock(singing very flat and off key, operatic style): Hello and welcome to all and one, tonight we're going to have some fun. Meet my appentice, with gifts in store, you will find that she is named L'amour...

Ash(over Brock's horrible singing): Oh please...

Brock(still singing): L'amour...

Mikaru: Make him stop...

Brock(still singing): L'amour...

Ash: I'll tell Misty...

Brock(still singing): L'amour!!!! (he cracks on the high note, causing some glass breaking to be heard offstage) L'amour! (he cracks again, making more glass break) L'amour!!!!!!!!! (as Brock tries again to hit the high note, the cane appears and yanks him off, to the audience's applause)

Ash(yelling offstage): Thanks, Misty! (applause)

Mikaru: I mean, I like showing you guys that I love you, but all the brouhaha about gifts, flowers, chocolate and sweet nothings makes me want to scream!

Brock(offstage): Tell me about it. (mild laughter as Misty joins Ash and Mikaru onstage)

Misty: Brock doesn't like Valentine's Day...

Mikaru: He should a little! He likes you and Ash, right?

Misty: Well, yeah; but you need to see a little of his track record with girls... (threads a reel in the projector and starts it)

[CARTOON-Brock crazy romantic montage]

(We see a pair of claymation Ash hands trying to make a paper heart. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash's paper heart gets decorated with glitter and lace. Some of the lace is in the shape of Pikachu's face)

(When we return to Ash, we see that some claymation Misty hands are with him in a movie theater. The female announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as Ash holds Misty close during a fight scene in the movie. The jewel in Misty's ring resembles a Pikachu face.)

(We join Misty and Mikaru backstage)

Mikaru: Thank you again for yanking Brock off...

Misty: My pleasure. Shall we see what would happen if Brock went on a date?

Mikaru: Not that it'll happen...but... (watches as Misty goes to work)

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

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

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

Mikaru(voiceover): Why normal clothes if he's going on a date?

(the pencil draws a suit and tie onto Brock)

Misty(voiceover): Now for his date... (the pencil draws a brown haired girl in a dress facing Brock at a restaurant table)

Brock: Good evening, sweetheart. (he kisses his date's hand, making her giggle)

Misty(voiceover): First is the soup course... (the pencil draws two bowls of soup on the table)

Mikaru(voiceover): And the entree will be arriving shortly! (at this a waiter trips on something, spilling food everywhere.)

(the pencil redraws the scene again, now clean)

Misty(voiceover): Let's try the soup course again... (the pencil redraws the soup bowls again, allowing Brock and his date to eat again)

(Suddenly, Brock notes something odd in his soup...)

Brock: Waiter!

(the pencil draws Ash in the scene as a waiter)

Brock: What's this Venonat doing in my soup? (gestures to the odd blob on his spoon)

Ash: The backstroke, perhaps? (rimshot as Brock sighs)

Misty(voiceover): The oldest joke in the book! Let's move on to the entree course!

(the pencil draws two plates of steak before Brock and his date)

Mikaru(voiceover): Bon apetit! (the grill lines on Brock's steak spell "The End")

(We join Ash, Brock, and the band onstage; where we watch Brock tune his guitar)

Ash: Now don't sing any opera, PLEASE!!! (laughter)

Brock: Relax, I have a different song in mind... (to the piano player) Maestro...
[piano chord]

Brock: A one woman man's what I wanna be....

[another piano chord] Stay by her side SO faithfully...

[and another piano chord] I would if I could, but it's just no good!

[one more piano chord] Cause there's two perfect girls for me-hee...
(laughs) All right! (starts playing guitar as the music picks up)

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

Oh yeah...

Officer Jenny, can't you see?
You can lock me up and throw away the key!
Jenny...if lovin' you's a crime
Then sentence me now, and I'll do the time!
My uniformed beauty is simply the best!
Got my heart under house arrest!
But before that cop makes me her boy,
I'm head over heels... (he's head over heels) I'm head over heels for a nurse named Joy...

Ooo!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

All right!

Nurse Joy, won't you please?
Cure me of this bad disease?
Oh, Joy, the diagnosis please,
When I see your face, my knees get weak!
Well, I'm burnin' up...I got the fever,
She's my perfect nurse and I'll never leave her!
Her bedside manner has healed so many,
But why am I in love... (why's he so in love?) Why am I in love with Officer Jenny...

Yeah!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be
But there's two perfect girls for me!

All right! Swing it!

[dance break Ash and Mikaru groove to the song as Brock and the band continue to play]

A one woman man's what I wanna be,
But there's two perfect girls for me-heeeee.....

Oh, I try...and I try...and I still sweat deep inside...
From these two, I can't choose, I can't stand the bad news,
Bout the name of the girl that I love, ooo!

This can't go on, enough is enough!
I've got to pick one, no matter how tough!
It's time for eeny-meeny, miney-moe...
But wait a second... (wait a second) Wait a second! (come on and wait a second) What's her name? I just gotta know...

I've just gotta know!

Jenny, oh Jenny...
Joy, oh Joy...
A one woman man's what I wanna be,
But there's one... no, two...
No, three-four-five-six-seven...so many...
Perfect girls for me-heeeeeee! All right! (everyone applauds as the song concludes)

Mikaru: Bravo!

Ash: At least that wasn't opera... (laughter as Ash starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"Once in a Mawile!"]

(We join the cast onstage)

Ash: How bout it? Did you and your sweethearts enjoy the evening?

(wild applause)

Ash: Great! We love you all, and we'll see you next time!

Pikachu: Pika! (blows a kiss as the curtain closes. "Pikachu's Tap Dance" plays as the credits roll)

Eh, it was cute. Not really a big fan of Valentine's Day, but hey, I'm just not interested in romance at this point in my life. I guess I'm kinda like Jughead Jones in that respect.

FlamingRuby
16th February 2007, 3:20 PM
I'm not really crazy about it either, hence why I put Mikaru being driven nuts about all the commercialism the day has.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Good ol’ Brock. So many of my favorite moments in the series revolve around him, and this chapter’s no exception; he was quite amusing this time around, too. Especially when he attempted opera…oh mercy. XD He needs to be careful doing that; if there’s anyone working around glass in the vicinty when he goes into opera mode, they could be injured. XD

Also…


Mikaru: No sappy violin music?

Ash: No sappy violin music, I promise. (laughter as we see Brock trudge backstage with a violin and bow tucked in one arm)

Aww, poor Brock. That’s one of those classic “wha-whaaa…” moments there, only without the actual “wha-whaaa”! XP Funny stuff, funny stuff…

FlamingRuby

hm any chance of a Digimon salute?

FlamingRuby
20th February 2007, 2:46 PM
A Digimon tribute is on the to-do list...but would you want it saluting Adventure, Tamers, Frontier, or Savers?

SST000
20th February 2007, 4:53 PM
I think I'd pick Savers.

FlamingRuby
20th February 2007, 5:59 PM
I was leaning more towards Adventure, but we'll see.

Besides, Ash and Tai are both hotheaded, so that should make for some comic moments.

Next: Taillow feature!

21st February 2007, 11:22 AM
Man, i'm late! but better late than never!

Nice val's day chapter (even if it was one day late) One part that was really good was:


Brock: What's this Venonat doing in my soup? (gestures to the odd blob on his spoon)

Ash: The backstroke, perhaps? (rimshot as Brock sighs)

LOL! That was a good one~!

poor brock...all he wanna do, is sing a good song, play his violin or opera all day long!

Ok i'm out!

L@er!

ANP #095: Tell Me a Taillow!


Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash. Mikaru, and a Taillow are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: You with the gum? I hope you have enough for everyone... (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 homage to one of my best winged companions...

(a picture of a Swellow unrolls, making the audience murmur)

Ash: Close, but I really want to focus on what that Pokemon starts out as. (the picture rolls back up, then displays the correct picture: a Taillow) There we go. (light applause) Even from the beginning, my own Taillow was--

Dawn(offstage): You may have been playing longer, but I have more technical skill!

Brock(offstage): It's not just about technical skill, you also have to play from your heart!

Dawn(offstage): Which I know how to do, Mr. Guitar Hero! (laughter as Ash sighs. Mikaru hurries onstage as Ash ponders how to stop the escalating arguement)

Mikaru: In case you're curious, Ash; Brock boasted to Dawn he was the best guitarist, and the arguement just escalated from there.

Ash: I see... (he sighs as Brock and Dawn enter from stage left, still arguing)

Brock: You say you can play harder passages than I can?

Dawn: Yeah!

Brock: Try me, Guitar Goddess! (light laughter)

Ash: ENOUGH!!!!!!

(Nincadas chirp)

Ash: There's only one way to settle this...

Brock: And I know just what it is! It's time for a...

(dramatic music begins)

Brock(echo-y voiceover): Musical Duel! (the words are spelled with lightning as Brock says them)

(When we return to the theater, we see that the lights are down except that Brock's in a red spotlight at stage right, and Dawn in a blue spotlight at stage left. May stands between the two at center stage, a sparkly flag in each hand)

Ash: I presume you're all familiar with the rules? (applause from the audience) Okay! May the best guitar hero win! (he retreats offstage)

(Brock leads off the song with the first riff from "Dueling Banjos", which Dawn replicates an octave higher. As the song progresses, Brock tries to throw Dawn off with a challenging passage, but Dawn matches him step for step an octave higher. Before long, Ash returns to the stage and leads the clapping as the two acoustic guitars duel each other. The audience roars with applause when they're done.)

Ash: Okay! Do we have a winner?

(May raises both flags, much to the shock of Brock and Dawn)

Ash: What do you know? It's a tie!

Dawn: Rematch after the show?

Brock: You're on! (they head offstage as Ash starts the projector...)

[CARTOON-"You Can Never Taillow!"]

(We see a pair of animated Ash hands and Mikaru paws holding cameras, apparently Taillow watching. As they take two pictures of the Taillows, one reads at the bottom, "You're watching the.." and the other reads, "Ash and Pikachu Show".)

(When we return to Ash and Mikaru, some normal Pikachu paws also enter the scene, and all three cameras snap the Taillows. The text now reads "Now back..." "to the..." "Ash and Pikachu Show!")

(We rejoin Mikaru by the drawing board, where Misty is getting ready)

Mikaru: ...And then Brock played (imitates a guitar) "daddle-dao-ao-dao-di-dao-dao-dao..." and then Dawn played--

Misty: I know, Mikaru, you liked the guitar duel...

Mikaru: Oh yes! Both played very well...

Misty: I'm glad you liked it, but--

(suddenly, a loud blast of music gets Misty's attention. She looks onstage to see Dawn and Brock playing and grooving with the band)

Misty: So much for my comic tonight...

Dawn: Sun goes down, I'm just getting up,
I'm headed for the city lights!
Radio blasting on the way to the club,
Gonna rock this town tonight!

"You're livin' in a man's world" they tell me,
But I'm not gonna buy it!
The things they're tryin' to sell me now!

Cos I'm the queen of rock n' roll!
Ooh-hoo!
I am the queen of rock n' roll!
Rock n' roll!

Brock: Whoa, yeah!

Heads up, and I'm ready to go!
My guitar is in my hand! (he shows off his instrument for emphasis)
There's nothing more that I'd rather do,
Than play with my rock n' roll band! (he gestures to the band)

What we have is what we'll be giving,
Heading for the top,
Don't you know?
We'll never stop believing now!

Cos I'm the king of rock n' roll!
You'd better believe it!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
I am the king of rock n' roll!
Rock n' roll!

Dawn: I am the queen,
I am the queen,
I am the queen of rock n' roll!

Brock: I am the king,
I am the king,
I am the king of rock n' roll!

[the audience roars as Brock breaks off to solo, followed by a saxophone solo from the band]

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!
Oh!

Dawn: I am the queen of rock n' roll!
Better be believin' that I am!

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!
Rock and ro-o-o-o-oll!

Dawn: I am the queen of rock 'n roll!
Rock and rock and roll!

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!
Rock and roll!

Dawn: I am the queen of rock n' roll!
Rock and rock and roll!

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!
Gonna rock and roll and rock and roll... [he continues]

Dawn(singing over Brock): I am the queen of rock n' roll!

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!

[By this time the noise of the audience signals that Brock is the clear winner of the duel of voices]

Brock: I am the king of rock n' roll!
You'd better believe it!
Yeah, yeah, yeah!
I am the king of rock n' roll!
Rock n' roll! (wild applause) Thank you!

Dawn: Okay, you win....

Misty: Note to self: Hide the "Kochou" episodes from those two... (laughter. (Ash just starts the projector)

[CARTOON-"That's Just Swellow!"]

(We join Ash, Mikaru, and Pikachu onstage)

Ash: Well, so much for my Taillow tribute...

Mikaru: Look at it this way...we got one rockin' show instead, right? (wild cheers)

Ash: You're right...is it any wonder we keep those two around? (laughter) So, shall we dance?

(Ash, Mikaru, and Pikachu dance to a reprise of "Pikachus Tap Dance" as the credits roll)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Musical Duels are a great addition to the show. ^^ And what was also great was this:


Mikaru: ...And then Brock played (imitates a guitar) "daddle-dao-ao-dao-di-dao-dao-dao..." and then Kari played--


It amuses me when people imitate the sound of instruments like that. XD

ANP #096: Walking with Dragons



Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music.

One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: It's amazing how we get away with this every night. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(On Our Way interlude plays as Ash runs onstage and waves to the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we focus on the most mystical type Pokemon--

(Ersatz tuba noises come from offstage, making the audience laugh.)

Ash: Yes, thank you, Brock and Dawn...as I was saying, tonight we pay tribute to the most rarest type of Pokemon--

(random noisemakers are heard offstage)

Ash: Excuse me... (he turns in the direction of the wings and whistles) Quiet down back there!

(some reshuffling is heard backstage)

Ash: Okay...tonight we pay tribute to the most rarest type of Pokemon... (he pauses to make sure that he doesn't get interrupted a third time) The legendary Dragons!

(applause as some Dratinis appear, followed by the rest of their line, the entire Bagon line, Aerodactyl, Gyarados, the Latis, and even Rayquaza. Amazingly enough, they are able to fit on the stage without breaking anything)

Ash: Not to be outdone by these legendary creatures, we'll also see their tamers in action...starting with this. (starts the projector)

[CARTOON-Lance montage]

(we see a pair of claymation armored Ash hands approching a Dragonite's cave. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as Ash and the Dragonite duel each other in a dust cloud. Yet when the dust clears, the Dragonite and Ash emerge unharmed and shake hands. One emblem on Ash's shield is a Pikachu face)

(When we return to Ash, he is now wearing his normal clothes and serenading some Dratinis and Dragonairs in a pond with his Pokeflute. The female announcer says "And now, back to the show!" as more Dratinis come to listen to the unfolding concert. Some ripples in the water make Pikachu's face)

(Backstage, some Dratinis and Bagons crowd around Misty's easel as she settles in a chair and clips a fresh piece of paper to it. Mikaru watches intently as the Dratinis jostle for a good view)

Misty: What kind of comic do you think dragons like?

Mikaru: Well... (he thinks a moment) You can talk about what really bugs you during a movie, or what you did on your last vacation, or the most horrible thing that went wrong at school...

Misty: Those are all very good ideas, but I liked the first one the best. (goes to work as the Dratinis and Bagons crowd around to watch)

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

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

(Brock is drawn on the screen in his normal clothes, followed by the scene of a movie theater)

Misty(voiceover): All right, he's paid the six bucks to get in... (Brock flashes his ticket stub proudly) Gotten popcorn, candy, and all that other bad-for-you stuff you know you shouldn't eat, but eat anyway.... (Brock munches on some popcorn) So, what happens?

Mikaru(voiceover): He could try to play those "challenging" movie trivia and word games they loop before the movie.

Brock: I know this one! It's C!

(The screen flashes: "The correct answer is C". In smaller print, it explains "'Spell of the Unown' was the first Pokemon movie released directly to video")

Brock: I knew that....

Misty(voiceover): Then there's those people who don't or "forget" to turn their cell phones off before the movie...

(In the theater, a bloop of power is heard as Brock pockets a now turned off cell phone)

Brock: There we go... (As the lights dim, he's jarred from the opening credits by "Unbeatable". He turns around to address the girl in the seat behind him) Do you mind?

Girl: Sorry... (smiles, embarrassed, as she too quiets her ringing cell phone. Brock just turns his attention to the unfolding movie.)

Misty(voiceover): Then there are those know it alls that "have" to rattle off the complete filmographies of the actors and/or voice actors...

Movie: Ah, but it would be a shame to put a black mark on your record...

(We see Tracey and Daisy in the row in front of Brock)

Tracey: Before accepting the role of Captain Jack Spearow, he played the Candy Master in "The Magic Chocolate"... (Daisy nods intently) and he was rumored to be in... (continues unintelligibly. As Tracey continues rambling, Brock gets angrier...and angrier...)

Daisy: What about this guy? (points out an actor onscreen)

Tracey: He did the voice of Link in "The Legend of Zelda: The Movie"...

Brock(a little angrier than before): Do you mind?

(we blip to a little later in the movie. Brock smiles and munches more popcorn as a swordfight unfolds onscreen.)

Mikaru(voiceover): But the worst of it is those people that talk through the movie for no reason whatsoever....

(We see Ash in the theater, only farther away from where the others are)

Mikaru(voiceover): By talk, I don't mean stuff like (impersonates Ash's voice as Ash mouths the words) "Don't go in there!" (as himself) or (as Ash again) "He's innocent!"

(We blip to see Ash watching the movie)

Movie: The moonlight reveals us for what we truly are....

Ash: And the daylight will reveal my true power!

(we blip to Ash's seat again)

Ash: That looks so CGI...

(We blip to Ash again)

Ash(cheering on the girl): Kiss him! Kiss him! Kiss him!

Brock: Errgh... (imitates the Cingular tune) Oh-di-li-o-di-li-o-di-li-oh, oh-di-li-oh-di-li-oh-di-li-ah, oh-di-li-oh-di-li-oh WILL YOU STOP????? (Ash slumps in his seat, afraid) Just as Brock settles in his seat again, the words "The End" appear on the screen and the lights come up. He sighs as a "wah-wah-wah-wah" stinger plays)

(The Dratinis giggle as Misty draws the last scene.)

Mikaru: And that, is what gets on Misty's nerves at the movie theater. (the dragons applaud, then romp onstage, where Brock and the band are tuning up)

Brock: This one's dedicated to all those with the loyalty and heart...of a dragon.

(music begins)

Brock: Struck by stormy seas and tossed all around,
And it seems as if we'll lose now...
We will shake that off and look for love in our hearts
That lies inside of us...

We will stand up and defend the promise we made
As many times we need to do so!
We bathe in the light, and dance and splash everywhere,
It feels so beautiful...

As we rise into the sunshine,
We are hot! We are hot! We are hot!
We lift up our voices, singing;
Flying high! Flying high! Flying high!

Fly away now...fly away now!

Our excited heartbeat, is consumed by a lovely melody...
Our heartbeat pulses with pride, and now we understand the only truth!
The light's reflection comes, straight from the mirror in the clouds...
Our restless and strong heartbeat is consumed and strengthened by the power of love!
And it will spread out towards our dream of a perfect harmony!

I stretch out my hand across this dark and broken world
I welcome all of you to this place.
Although it hurt at first, I have dealt with the pain
So was that really love?

A rushing wind is blowing,
Really quick! Really quick! Really quick!
I made it through the wild squall,
I am strong! I am strong! I am strong!

We will be strong...we will be strong!

Everybody's heartbeat together forms a rainbow of harmony...
Can't you hear the bell's lovely ring? Our light will shine forever and always!
We will be searching for the return of our paradise,
The heartbeat that we feel will be consumed by the power of love!
And it will spread out toward our dream of a perfect harmony!

Our excited heartbeat, is consumed by a lovely melody...
Our heartbeat pulses with pride, and now we understand the only truth!
The light's reflection comes, straight from the mirror in the clouds...
Our restless and strong heartbeat is consumed and strengthened by the power of love!

Everybody's heartbeat together forms a rainbow of harmony...
Can't you hear the bell's lovely ring? Our light will shine forever and always!
We will be searching for the return of our paradise,
The heartbeat that we feel will be consumed by the power of love!
And it will spread out toward our dream of a perfect harmony!
We will rise again with this dream of a perfect harmony!

(wild applause as Brock and the band bow. The applause is especially strong from Salamence and Latias)

Ash: Thanks, Brock...now to introduce you to the other dragon tamers I've met... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-Clair and Drake montage)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, and the dragons onstage)

Ash: Okay, how are going to do this with the stage not giving way?

Pikachu: Pikachu! (he poses, then begins to dance solo to "Pikachu's Tap Dance" as the credits roll. The dragons applaud when the song concludes)

Ash: Well, that's one way... (Pikachu winks as the scene fades out)

Nice chapter, FlamingRuby! I particularly liked the movie cartoon! Brock can be hella scary when interrupted, eh? Just one thing: Is there really a Zelda Movie?!!! If there isn't... ****** double barrel shotgun*

...you can guess the rest...

Gah, I agree about those annoyances at the theatre. Particularly the cell phones and the needless talking…grr…

Liked that comic, and liked the beginning, too, when Ash kept getting interrupted. My favorite interruption:


Ash: Thank you! Tonight we focus on the most mystical type Pokemon--

(Ersatz tuba noises come from offstage, making the audience laugh.)

There’s just something magically funny about random tuba sounds. XD

ANP #097: Who's the Greatest?



Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash. Mikaru, and Gary are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: Everything else you watch on TV today just won't be as funny. (smiles over one last hit of music as the scene fades out)

(On Our Way interlude as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight, we are....

(Ash is surprised when Gary storms out onto the stage, Umbreon in tow)

Gary: I'm surprised you never acknowledge ME on the show!

Ash: But--

Gary: But nothing! I could be way funnier than your insipid little revue could ever hope to be! (gasps emenate from the crowd)

Ash: Well, it IS called (pulls the title card back into the scene for a moment as the last little bit of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" plays) "The Ash and Pikachu Show", for a reason. (pushes the title card away)

Gary: Not today it isn't! (drags the title card back in and writes on it for a moment) Today it's "The Gary and Umbreon Show" (shows the audience the rewritten title: Ash's and Pikachu's names are scratched out with Gary and Umbreon written in their places; Gary and Umbreon are in the prominent spots on the stage, and Ash is located where Gary was seconds earlier)

Ash: Now wait a minute! (sprays the title card clean with a hose) This is MY show, not yours!

Gary: It's mine now! (the cane appears...but contrary to Gary's expectations, it yanks HIM offstage. The audience applauds.)

Ash: Finally... (he pushes the title card away as Mikaru walks onstage)

Mikaru: Who was THAT jerk?

Ash: That would be Gary, my self declared rival. (laughter as Ash starts to the projector) He and I go way back... (starts the projector)

(CARTOON-"Fire and Ice", part 1)

(We see a pair of CGI Ash hands waving to a crowd as he comes onstage. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'!" as some CGI Gary hands shove Ash to the ground, making CGI winged Pikachus spin around Ash's head)

(When we return to Ash, we see him rigging the cane as Gary walks by. The female announcer says "And now, back to the show...we think..." as Ash accidentally triggers his own trap! As Ash is pulled offstage, we see a brief flash of a Pikachu face in the dust)

(We rejoin Ash and Mikaru backstage as the projector rewinds)

Mikaru: No wonder Gary thinks he's Mr. Better-Than-You!

Ash: Really... (laughter as Ash notes the drawing board is unoccupied) Since Misty isn't here, I hope she doesn't mind if I do a quick sketch. (he wheels a chair to the drawing board, takes one of Misty's pencils, and goes to work as the scene zooms into the paper)

(We see a blank screen, presumably a blank piece of paper)

(Gary is carefully drawn on the screen)

Gary: What's with the blank paper?

Ash(voiceover): You're a drawing, and I haven't drawn anything to happen to you yet! (to Mikaru) I'm filling in for Misty tonight.

Gary: I bet I'll be the only nice looking drawing in the land of stick figures...why, I'm not even colored!

Ash(voiceover): I'll fix that!

(A pencil appears and starts to color Gary...)

Gary: Ha, ha,...that tickles! (continues laughing as the pencil tries to color him, but before long, there's a huge rainbow smudge on the paper)

Ash(voiceover): If you'll stop laughing, maybe I can color you easier!

Gary: Well, excuuuuuse me, Mr. Animator!

Mikaru(voiceover): I'll help you!

(a wave of color splashes over Gary, coloring him outlandashly)

Ash(voiceover): Now look what you've done, Mikaru! Now I have to do it all over again!

Gary: And make it snappy!

(The page is torn off to reveal a fresh page. Music begins as Ash meticulously begins to draw and color Gary. A "ta-da!" stinger plays when Ash completes the drawing)

Ash(voiceover): Better?

Gary: Much! (A "The End" is stamped on the page as the scene fades out)

(Ash is putting the finishing touches on his drawing as Misty walks by)

Ash: Look what I made! (proudly shows Misty his drawing)

Misty: You really... (snatches the drawing away) Hm...wow...I didn't know you could draw so well! (Gary happens to see his portrait as he walks by)

Gary: A portrait? Of moi? (he takes the drawing and smiles) Not bad, Picasso!

Ash: That's not the only thing I have for you! (he drags Gary back onstage, where Brock and Dawn ae waiting with a trombone and a Pokeflute, respectively)

Gary: I've never heard of this kind of duet before...

Ash: You'll love it!

Mikaru: Hit it, guys! (Dawn shoots Mikaru the Look) and girls. (light laughter)

(Brock and Dawn start to play a song that sounds (more or less) like a tango. The audience chuckles as the two of them dance along to what they're playing, which gets more and more ridiculous as the song goes on. By the time they finish, their dance is completely over the top, the song isn't remotely recognizeable at all, and the audience is howling with laughter, Gary included.)

Mikaru: While they calm down, watch this! (starts the projector as the applause dies down)

(CARTOON-"Fire and Ice", part 2)

(We join Ash, Pikachu, Gary, and Umbreon onstage)

Gary: I must say, your little revue isn't so bad after all!

Ash: See why it's so popular? (cheers and applause)

Gary: Yeah...I'm sorry I tried to take it over before...

Ash: Apology accepted! (he sweeps Gary into his arms as the oddball duet begins again. They continue to tango as the credits roll)

THE END

Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but that makes me smile. I’m glad it’s in the opening sequence. Pie gags = yes.


Gary: It's mine now! (the cane appears...but contrary to Gary's expectations, it yanks HIM offstage. The audience applauds.)

Favorite moment in that episode, right there. I like cane gags, too. :D


It was interesting, seeing Ash do the drawing for a change. And then Mikaru inflicting a COLOR EXPLOSION! upon the Gary-drawing… heh, that’s an image. :p

ANP #098: Mikaru vs. Team Rocket


Cue OP-Pikachu's Tap Dance-We see Pikachu dancing out on a stage to a catchy tune before we see a montage of clips from the show. We then see Brock and Dawn tangoing, Bulbasaur, Charmander, and Squirtle posing in time to the music, Brock playing guitar and breaking a string, and Ash juggling Poke Balls and catching them in his hat in time to the music. Next, we see Brock going goo goo for Nurse Joy, Pikachu winking, and the Transporter going haywire, followed by Ash and Misty panicing over the previous scene. Then we see Brock running to hug Officer Jenny, only to crash into something backstage, Misty and May posing, Ash peeking onstage and panicing over something, Dawn looking up from a comic, Brock getting yanked offstage by the cane in time to the music, the band playing, followed by Brock getting hit with pies in time to the music. Next we see Ash running onstage to greet the crowd, followed by Dawn and the band performing.

The montage culminates in returning to the earlier scene of Pikachu dancing, only now Ash, Mikaru, and Meowth are with him. One by one, Misty, May, Brock, and Dawn join the dance as the words in the title fly into place. The completed title card slowly zooms at the audience before settling in a spot over Ash and Pikachu as everyone poses for the audience to end the song.)

(Suddenly, a spotlight appears on Brock)

Brock: If you like the show, tell your friends! If you don't, there's always Digimon on the other channel. (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 we're going to give our newest cast member a show...so let's all give Mikaru a hand.

(the audience applauds as a spotlight appears at stage right, but nobody enters)

Ash: Funny...Mikaru's usually here...so why is he running late?

(Meanwhile, in a forest not far from Celadon, we find Mikaru in one particular burrow, asleep. Suddenly, the alarm blares "Born to Be a Champion". As Mikaru reaches to hit the snooze button, he realizes what time it is: 7:32 PM)

Mikaru: Oh no, I'm late! (he throws off his night clothes and dashes to a tiny elevator, which carries him up to the surface) I hope Ash doesn't get mad... (He reaches for a Pika sized cell phone and dials Ash's number)

(Back in the theater, Ash is pacing the stage, wondering why Mikaru could be late. The cast is nearby)

Brock: It's not like Mikaru to be late...

Misty: Yeah, he's usually in the wings, ready to roll, at 7:30, sharp!

May: You think something's happened to him?

(At that second, the R/B/Y opening blares from Ash's pocket. Brock shoots Ash The Look as Ash fumbles for a ringing cellphone, much to the bemusement of the audience)

Ash: Sorry about this, folks... (he answers the phone) Hello?

(the screen splits to show Mikaru on the other end, still running through the forest)

Mikaru: Sorry, Ash...I overslept on my afternoon nap and realized I was running late!

Ash: It's all right, Mikaru...how soon can you get here?

Mikaru: I should be there in 5-10 minutes, tops.

Ash: Okay then... (the screen returns to normal as Ash hangs up) That was Mikaru...

(the audience applauds)

May: What did he say?

Ash: He's on his way here, and should be here in about 10 minutes or so...

(back in another part of the forest, we see Team Rocket tiptoing by with Super Rods. When they realize that we (the TV audience) are watching, they stop for a minute)

Meowth: I suppose you guys tink we're goin' fishin', right?

(silence as Meowth listens for a supposed answer)

Meowth: Well, we are goin' fishin'...fishin' for Pikachus! (he baits his line with an Oran Berry) They go crazy for Oran Berries, ya know.
(With that, Meowth casts his line into the grass. Unbeknownst to him, Mikaru has spotted his hook)

Mikaru: Hm... (he toys with the hook for a second as we see an inside view of his head, where we see gears turning)

(Mikaru's thought process: (picture of Mikaru+picture of hook=picture of Mikaru hanging the hook on Meowth's tail. Picture of Meowth's hooked tail+picture of Super Rod=picture of Meowth getting dragged all over the place)

(Mikaru snickers at the mental image of Meowth getting dragged all over the place as he toys with the hook)

Mikaru: I'm gonna do this, but I'll probably hate myself tomorrow morning. (he hooks the hook to Meowth's tail and lightly tugs his fur, making the line jerk)

Meowth: Oh boy! I got somethin'! (he starts reeling in the supposed Pikachu. As he is doing this, Mikaru snickers at the struggle Meowth is having)

Mikaru: Need help?

Meowth: Please!

(Mikaru takes the rod and gives it a big yank, dragging Meowth through the grass. When he finally reels Meowth in, Meowth is covered in leaves, throrns, and thorny burs)

Meowth: Hey! Put me down, or else! (he brandishes his claws)

Mikaru(over Meowth's ranting): Aww...I was expecting a Persian...guess I'll throw him back! (he sends Meowth flying into a bush, then darts away) Later, Rockets! (he giggles as he continues towards the city, but is soon met by Jessie and James in his path.)

James: Going somewhere?

Mikaru: Yipe! (He darts away)

Meowth: Guard da rods! I'll chase'em! (he hurries off after Mikaru)

(We see scenes of Mikaru running through the city, with Meowth in hot pursuit. After a while, he finds the theater and races to the stage door)

Mikaru: There it is! I'll lose him here! (he darts inside and closes the stage door behind him. Meowth, meanwhile, enters the theater from the main entrance)

(As Mikaru catches his breath, Dawn finds him as she heads to the wings with a armload of sheet music)

Dawn: There you are! What took so long?

Mikaru: Long story.... (he follows Dawn to the wings)

(in the lobby, Meowth frantically searches for Mikaru)

Meowth: Where'd he go? He's gotta be here somewhere!

(Mikaru peeks from the main auditorium entrance)

Mikaru: Yoo-hoo! (he waves to get Meowth's attention)

(Meowth races inside the auditorium only to be met by the cast playing the Athletic theme from Super Mario World: Yoshi's Island onstage. Figuring that he lost Mikaru, he decides to settle in an empty seat and enjoy the show. Before long, he is clapping along with the audience to the tune.)

(We also look at the cast performing: Ash is on fiddle, Misty on banjo, May on rhythm guitar, Brock on lead guitar, and Dawn on mandolin. Out of Meowth's view, Mikaru is perched atop a string bass, playing the tune's bass line with his tail)

(When the song concludes, the audience applauds and the cast bows. Meowth is especially enthralled by the song)

Meowth: Bravo! Encore!

(Back onstage, Dawn motions to Mikaru)

Dawn: We're doing Isle Delfino Plaza next...

Mikaru: Got it!

(Ash, meanwhile, tunes his instrument a little as he waits for the applause to die down)

Ash(stage whisper): Okay, are we ready? (everyone nods) Count us off, Brock.

Brock: Okay... (everyone readies their instruments as Brock snaps a few times, then launch into a rendition of Super Mario Sunshine's Isle Delfino Plaza.)

(The song continues as the cast trades solos--Brock leads off the solos, then Ash and Dawn each take a solo. But when Mikaru swipes Ash's bow to play a solo, Meowth spots him!)

Meowth: Dere he is... (he gets up and heads back towards the lobby)

(By the time, Meowth leaves, the gang is winding down the song (and Ash has his bow back). When it finally concludes, Meowth corners Mikaru at center stage.)

Meowth: Gotcha now! (the audience gasps as Meowth moves in to grab Mikaru)

Mikaru: Quick! I need a distraction!

Ash: One distraction, coming up! (he raises his fiddle to his chin again and kicks off a rendition of "Pidgey in the Straw", which Mikaru dances to.)

Meowth: Hey...dat has a pretty hot beat! (he decides to join in the dancing with Mikaru. The audience claps along as the two of them cavort across the stage, but when the song ends, we hear a crash backstage.)

Dawn: What was that?

Mikaru: That would be my pursuer getting buried in props. (laughter)

Ash: Anyway... (he sets his fiddle aside) Now that Mikaru's here, let's get his special show started? (light applause, but Ash spots the grand piano seemingly moving onstage on its own) For his first act, Mikaru will--(he notes Meowth hiding in the piano and gasps) Mikaruwillnowplayapianosolo! (dashes offstage)

Mikaru: Thanks, Ash! (he proceeds to play the Hungarian Rhapsody #2, which is enough to send Meowth staggering out the stage door. Misty watches Meowth stagger out into an alleyway)

Misty: Good thinking, Mikaru!

Ash: Pity we're almost out of time...

(an "Awww..." goes up from the audience)

Mikaru: Hey, that's okay! I had fun tonight, even if I was late!

Ash: So, shall we dance?

(A reprise of "Pikachu's Tap Dance" plays as Ash, Mikaru, and Pikachu dance and the credits roll)

THE END

Brock: Let us fly... (smiles over one last hit of music before the scene fades out)

(Applause as Ash runs onstage to greet the crowd)

Ash: Thank you! Tonight we take a look at Shinou's style of contests... (May walks onstage, piqued by Ash's intro)

May: What's so different about them?

Dawn(offstage): Quite a lot, May! For one thing, you get to dress up all pretty..

(Suddenly, Happini tottles onstage)

Happini: Pini pini! (she continues dancing around Dawn as Brock arrives to retrieve her)

Brock: Not now, little girl...we can play dressup after the show is over...
(This isn't acceptable to Happini, so she begins to cry...which spurs Mikaru to race onstage)

Mikaru: What's the matter? What's wrong?

Brock: Happini wants to play dress up, which we can't do while we're doing the show...

Dawn: Maybe she'd like to see me model some of what I wear in contests? (she wheels out the projector and starts it)

(CARTOON-Dawn costume montage)

(We see a pair of live Ash hands in a Super Contest Hall as Dawn, now in a lavender top hat and tails, dances to a techno beat. The female announcer says "You're watching 'The Ash and Pikachu Show'! as Ash applauds Dawn. The decoration on Dawn's hat is a Pikachu face)

(When we return to Ash, we find him trying his hand as Dawn's dance, but not doing a very good job. The Announcer says "And now, back to the show!" As Ash stumbles through the dance before falling through the floor with a crash. As we look through the hole, we see that it is shaped like a Pikachu face)

(We rejoin Ash, May, Dawn and Mikaru onstage. Mikaru is trying to keep Happini entertained)

Mikaru: How about this one? (he makes a silly face. Happini is not amused)

Ash: I don't think she wants to see silly faces, Mikaru...

Mikaru: Then what would she like to see?

Happini: Pini!

Dawn: See me do the dance I did when we went for commercial? Okay... (She calls Buneary and Buizel over and snaps, making her appear in the same costume she wore in the eyecatch.)

Mikaru: Wow...

Dawn: I'd appriciate it if Brock and the band played the song for me... (the lights come up on Brock and the band)

Mikaru: Why?

Dawn: It beats the Dancing Star machine they usually use...

Mikaru: Wait a second, you actually play Dancing Star in a contest?

May: Cool!

Dawn: Yes, the trainer and Pokemon dance together on a Dancing Star machine set in freestyle mode. And for this demo, I want Buneary to dance with me. (Buneary runs next to her master)

Brock: Short or full version of the song? (he tunes his guitar some more)

Dawn: Short, please...

Brock: Okay then... (he snaps to count the band off)

(music begins. Dawn and Buneary dance to the song as Brock sings)

Brock: Welcome to the wonderland
A place for you and me
If you treat me right
Then maybe you will have a key
This world is very special
And I'll show it just for you
All you have to say is "Yes, I do"

Let us fly-yai-yai-yai-yai, la-di-da-di-da-di-dah
To the golden sky
It's the paradise of smile
Where sun always shine
La-da-di-da-di-da-di-dah

Let us fly-yai-yai-yai-yai, la-di-da-di-da-di-dah
To the golden sky
It's the paradise of smile

(applause as Brock, Dawn, Buneary, and the band bow)

Mikaru: Encore!

Happini: Pini! (applauds)

Brock: Ya like that, Happini? (winks in Happini's direction as Dawn starts the projector)

(CARTOON-Dawn dance montage)

(We join the cast onstage)

Mikaru: You know, I just realized something...

Ash: Hm?

Mikaru: The next show will be show #100...

(wild applause)

Mikaru: that said, I'm really hoping you have something special planned...

Ash: Oh, I do...but we're out of time for tonight, so I can't tell you now...

Mikaru: I can wait! Trust me!

Ash: Okay... (he leads the dance as reprise of Pikachu's Tap Dance plays and the credits roll.)

(Mikaru snickers at the mental image of Meowth getting dragged all over the place as he toys with the hook)

First, there’s that funny image, initially presented as a mere thought in Mikaru’s head…

Mikaru: I'm gonna do this, but I'll probably hate myself tomorrow morning. (he hooks the hook to Meowth's tail and lightly tugs his fur, making the line jerk)

Then there was the 99th episode, in which Happiny was adorable. ^^ Of course, Happiny also reminds me of the time that I wasted nearly all my capture balls on Diamond trying to catch this Chansey, only to remember after the fact that I already had a Happiny and the means to evolve her ready to go. XD So yeah, seeing Happiny there brought back an amusing little memory for me. ^^

And oh wow, your 100th episode is soon to come… it’s amazing to think this series has come this far. Good luck with #100! ^^

I had writer's block on #99, that's why it took so long.

Probably not, but we'll see.

He may get his own show (against his will)

lol! that would be funny!

So any chance of a salute to Digimon ep? having Tamers show up would be hilarious especially Susie trying to get Pikachu to play Princess Pretty Pants with her (and sparing Terriermon from humiliation)

Well, it's not out of the question, but if it happens, I may be using the original Adventure Destined, since I'm the most familiar with Adventure 01

Ah cool, that would make for some interesting interaction with the Adevnture 01 cast.

Would Brock hit on Sora and Mimi?

FlamingRuby

Yes, and Ash would prolly argue with Matt and Tai...

lol I can see it now.

Ash: least I never let my pokemon evolve into some skeleton thingy!

Tai: Least Greymon never fell asleep during a championship fight!

Ash: *glare**vein pulses on forehead*

Matt: Ouch, that was below the belt Tai

Just when I thought this story had been completely abandoned because of writer's block, FlamingRuby comes back and proves me wrong.

Right now, I'm just hoping for #100 to be done quickly so we can get on with season 5. I know I'm sounding rude, but I've been waiting FOREVER for any sign of life from this thread.

Will he talk normally or will it be baby talk, since Pichus are baby Pikachus.

He'll mainly squeak in Pichu talk until he asks to speak again.

I've just been insanely busy as of late...

Uhhh...This is just something I didn't get:


Meowth races inside the auditorium only to be met by the cast playing the Athletic theme from Super Mario World: Yoshi's Island onstage.

Where song is that?

FlamingRuby

It's the song that plays in such stages as "Hop! Hop! Donut Lifts"

Here's a clip from the game with that song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wESaCoNs4jY

I'll be honest, I only read the first episode so far. I love the intermission, it's a really nice touch, just to make it that much nicer.

All the information about Cyndaquil was nice, although I wasn't too sure on the random appearences of Brock and Dawn, but I assume I'd understand that a bit more if I read the first three seasons.

I must admit, I've seen this on the Forums ever since the first season, but I've never been drawn in by it. It's not my type of read, but it's not actually that bad.

I rate it at about 7 out of 10, mainly because of it not being my type of fic, and for the layout of it. It's obviously set out in script format, which I find a chore to read.

The reason why Episode 100's taking so long is because A. I have had no time to write, and B. other commitments

The show is on hiatus...I have so many ideas for the 100th show, it's getting hard to write.

I'm sorry for the inconveinience.
