MUSIC: FANFARE ... "WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF?"


ANNOUNCER: The Pepsodent Company presents Mickey Mouse!


MUSIC: ACCENT ... "WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF?"


ANNOUNCER: With Minnie, Donald Duck, and all the gang!


MUSIC: THEME ... "WHO'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD WOLF?" ... THEN OUT BEHIND--


ANNOUNCER: It's Snow White Day on Mickey's show. This afternoon Mickey Mouse and the Pepsodent Company bring you all the characters from Walt Disney's first feature-length triumph, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." And here's one of the hit tunes from the picture, played by Felix Mills and His Orchestra, "Whistle While You Work"!


MUSIC: A BRISK MINUTE-AND-A-HALF INSTRUMENTAL VERSION OF "WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK"


SOUND: APPLAUSE


ANNOUNCER: With the first week of Nineteen Thirty-Eight gone, dare I ask you how you're coming with your New Year's resolutions? (BEAT) Well, don't we all? But there's one resolution you really should keep, if only from the selfish motive that it's bound to repay you in dividends of joy and happiness. So just resolve right now that, come what may, for the balance of the new year, you're going to brush your teeth twice each day with Pepsodent Tooth Paste containing Irium. Or, if you prefer powder, with Pepsodent Tooth Powder, also containing remarkable Irium. You'll be thrilled and delighted when you see how speedily Pepsodent containing Irium makes your smile far brighter, your teeth more naturally bright and sparkling than you perhaps ever thought they could be. And really, it's no trick, no secret. It's simply that Pepsodent alone contains that marvelous new cleansing agent known as Irium. And with the help of Irium, Pepsodent can easily and quickly brush away dingy surface stains, those same surface stains that actually hide the true beauty of your smile. With these masking surface stains gone, your teeth then glisten and gleam with all their glorious natural radiance. That, you see, is the miracle of Irium. Why not learn it for yourself?


MUSIC: TRANSITION ... "WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK"


ANNOUNCER: And now here's the Disney gang and Mickey Mouse!


SOUND: BARNYARD ANIMALS ENTER CHATTERING, CHUCKLING, CLUCKING, WHINNYING, ET CETERA


MICKEY: Hi, folks!


MINNIE: Hello, everybody!


MICKEY: Hey--! 


SOUND: APPLAUSE


MICKEY: Hey! Where's Donald?


ANNOUNCER: (EVIDENT DISLIKE OF DONALD IN HIS VOICE) I was just coming to that. Special announcement: Donald Duck will not be on this program.


SOUND: BARNYARD ANIMALS REACT UNHAPPILY WITH DISAPPOINTMENT


MINNIE: Awwww! Ya mean that? Well, what's happened?


GOOFY: (LAUGHS GOOFILY) John locked him in the attic. (LAUGHS) 


MINNIE: Locked him in the attic?


ANNOUNCER: That's right, Minnie. I figured he was a menace to the program. Last week, he butted in on everybody, lost his temper, and, really, I--


MICKEY: (AMUSED) Oh, boy! I'd like to see him now. Ha!


ANNOUNCER: Well, don't worry. You won't see him this afternoon.


GOOFY: Oh. Oh, gosh. Gosh, I almost forgot. Here. Here's a telegram for ya, Mickey.


MICKEY: Oh, thanks.


ANNOUNCER: What does the message say, Mickey?


MICKEY: (READS, AMUSED) "My dear vast impatient public, dry your eyes and keep your shirts on. I'll be with you any minute now. Signed, D. Duck."


MINNIE: Oooh! But, Mickey, how could he?


ANNOUNCER: Don't worry, Minnie. I guarantee that Donald Duck will positively not appear on this broadcast.


MICKEY: (READS) "P. S. That's what you think." (LAUGHS)


MINNIE: (LAUGHS) Well, how are ya gonna do it, John?


ANNOUNCER: I'll show you how. (CALLS) Hey, Butch!


BUTCH AND BUDDY: (OFF) Comin', boss!


MICKEY: Oh, boy. Look at those tough mugs.


BUTCH: What do you want, boss?


ANNOUNCER: You've locked the doors?


BUDDY: Yeah. And guardin' 'em.


ANNOUNCER: And the windows are barred?


BUTCH: Yeah, and what's more, out in the hall we've got a couple of duck blinds.


ANNOUNCER: Okay. Well, get back to your posts. If that duck shows up here this afternoon, I'll crush him with my bare hands.


DISNEY: (CHUCKLES) What's the matter, John? Having duck trouble?


ANNOUNCER: Plenty! I've-- (FRIENDLY AGAIN) Oh, hello, Walt. Ladies and gentlemen, Walt Disney.


SOUND: STUDIO AUDIENCE APPLAUSE ... BARNYARD ANIMALS GREET DISNEY 


DISNEY: (CHUCKLES) Uh, I thought you'd removed the duck from the program.


ANNOUNCER: Well, I still think so. You see, Walt, radio just doesn't seem to be Donald's medium. In the first place, you can't understand a word he says, and--


DISNEY: Yeah. (CHUCKLES) And if you could, you'd have to throw him off the program.


ANNOUNCER: Say, by the way, Walt. You haven't forgotten, have you, that today's the day you promised to introduce all the characters from "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"?


DISNEY: Right you are, John. Hey, Goofy?


GOOFY: Yeah?


DISNEY: Bring on the mirror, will ya?


GOOFY: You want your brush and comb, too?


DISNEY: (CHUCKLES) No, Goofy, the Magic Mirror. The one from "Snow White."


GOOFY: (MOVING OFF) Okay, Walt.


SOUND: MAGIC MIRROR ROLLED OUT AS BARNYARD ANIMALS CHATTER EXPECTANTLY BEHIND--


MINNIE: (THRILLED) Oh, he's gonna bring the mirror. (TO GOOFY) Oh, be careful now. Don't drop it.


GOOFY: There you are.


DISNEY: Ahhhh, yeah, there we are. The mirror that knows all and sees all. Last week, it took us back into the past. But this week, we'll have it bring the past up to us. Okay, Mickey, call on the magic spirit.


MUSIC: FOR SUMMONING THE SPIRIT ... QUIETLY SNEAKS IN AND BUILDS UP BEHIND MICKEY--


MICKEY: (SOLEMN, TO MIRROR) 

Slave in the Magic Mirror, 

Come from the farther space.

On wind and flame I summon thee.

Speak, reveal thy face.

(FLIPPANT) And make it snappy.

GOOFY: Oh, gosh, she's sure pretty!


MINNIE: Isn't she beautiful?


SNOW WHITE: Thank you. And how do you do, Mr. Disney?


DISNEY: Hello, Snow White. I hope we didn't disturb you.


SNOW WHITE: Oh, no. When the mirror called me, I was thinking about the day long ago when I was scrubbing the palace courtyard dressed in rags.


DISNEY: Well, that's great. Because the reason I had the mirror bring you here was to have you sing exactly as you did that day.


SNOW WHITE: The wishing well song?


DISNEY: That's the one. And when you finish, the mirror will bring in the prince. And when you run back up into the castle, the prince will sing to you, just as he did in the picture.


MUSIC: SNEAKS IN DURING ABOVE ... "I'M WISHING" ... CONTINUES IN BG


SNOW WHITE: Oh, Mr. Disney, I'd love it!


DISNEY: All right, princess. Now you've gone over to the well to get another bucket of water. The birds gather around--


BIRDS: (WHISTLE)


DISNEY: --and watch. And you talk to them.


SNOW WHITE: (SINGS)

Want to know a secret? (A BIRD WHISTLES IN REPLY)

Promise not to tell? (A BIRD COOS)

We are standing by a wishing well. (A BIRD WHISTLES)

Make a wish into the well.

That's all you have to do.

And if you hear it echoing, 

Your wish will soon come true.

 

I'm wishing--

SNOW WHITE: (SCARED, SPEAKS) Oh! 


MUSIC: FOR SNOW WHITE RUNNING OFF ... SEGUES TO "ONE SONG" DURING FOLLOWING


PRINCE: (SPEAKS) Wait!


SNOW WHITE: (RUNNING OFF) Oh! 


PRINCE: (SPEAKS) 

Don't be frightened! 

Please don't run away! 

Now that I've found you-- 

(SINGS)

Hear what I have to say!


One song, I have but one song.

One song, only for you. 


One heart tenderly beating, 

Ever entreating, constant and true.


One love that has possessed me.

One love thrilling me through, 


One song, my heart keeps singing 

Of one love, only for you. 


MUSIC: SONG ENDS


SOUND: APPLAUSE


SOUND: BARNYARD ANIMALS REACT FAVORABLY


MICKEY: Gee, Walt, that was swell! What happened then?


DISNEY: Well, Mickey, the Wicked Queen was very jealous of Snow White, so she sent the Huntsman into the woods to kill her.


GOOFY: Gosh, Walt. Did he?


DISNEY: No. He just couldn't do it. He told her to run and hide, so she ran through the woods -- terrified -- and finally fell to the ground sobbing.


SOUND: SNEAKS IN DURING ABOVE ... BIRDS WHISTLE AND WOODS ANIMALS CHATTER ... THEN IN AGREEMENT WITH FOLLOWING--


MUSIC: SNEAKS IN ... "WITH A SMILE AND A SONG" ... CONTINUES IN BG


DISNEY: And all the little woods animals -- the birds and the squirrels and the rabbits and deer -- gathered 'round her and cheered her up. And she sang this song.


SNOW WHITE: (SINGS, ACCOMPANIED BY THE BIRDS) 

With a smile and a song, 

Life is just like a bright, sunny day;

Your cares fade away, 

And your heart is young.

 

With a smile and a song, 

All the world seems to waken anew, 

Rejoicing with you,

As the song is sung.


There's no use in grumbling, 

When raindrops come tumbling; 

Remember you're the one 

Who can fill my heart with sunshine. 


When you smile and you sing, 

Everything is in tune and it's Spring 

And Life flows along, 

With a smile and a song. 


THE BIRDS: (WHISTLE THE FIRST EIGHT BARS)


SNOW WHITE: (RESPONDS WITH A WORDLESS MELODY LINE)


THE BIRDS: (WHISTLE THE NEXT EIGHT BARS, COMPLETING A HALF-CHORUS)


SNOW WHITE: (SINGS, ACCOMPANIED BY THE BIRDS)

There's no use in grumbling, 

When raindrops come tumbling; 

Remember you're the one 

Who can fill my heart with sunshine. 

(THE BIRDS DROP OUT AND THE ORCHESTRA CARRIES MOST OF THE 

REST OF THE SONG AS SNOW WHITE SINGS A WORDLESS COUNTERMELODY 

WHICH CLIMAXES WITH HER SINGING TWO REPEATS OF THE TITLE 

PHRASE, ENDING ON A HIGH NOTE)

With a smile and a song.

Some day we'll meet again 


And away to his castle we'll go 

To be happy forever I know.


Some day when spring is here 

We'll find our love anew 


And the birds will sing 

And wedding bells will ring 

Some day when my dreams come true.


PRINCE: (SINGS) 

Some day I'll find my love,

Someone to call my own

And the birds will sing 

And wedding bells will ring

Some day when my dreams come true.
