Ferapontov Jumping over the puddles The pedestrians huddle As water rivers down to the road. And they look, and they wonder -- In this rain, in this thunder, Why I'm smiling and so happy. And I'm playing my garmoshka loud for everyone to hear. What a pity, that a birthday comes only once a year. There will come a magician In a blue helicopter and will throw us a show for free. Then he'll say "Happy Birthday", And probably will leave 500 ice cream, as a gift for me. And I'm playing my garmoshka Loud for everyone to hear. It's a pity that a birthday Comes just once a year. It's a pity that a birthday Comes but once a year. - Hello. Is this the house of Gena the Crocodile? - Yes, this is where he lives. It's me. - Then please sign this. - Hello, Gena! - Hello! - I wish you a happy birthday. - Thank you! Is this for me? - Yes. - Cheburashka, you're a true friend! - Scouts... - Scouts. - Real scouts... - Ah, I'd love to be able to march like that. - March? To become a scout, you have to do a lot of good deeds. Understand? - I understand... - Wow, it's very pretty. - Pretty. - Let's launch it, huh? - Okay. - One... - Two... - Three! - Not like that, like this. - Hold on to this. - Holding. - Hold tight, now. - Like that? - Like that! - Chaburashka! Hold on! - Cheburashka! Did you get hurt? - No. Not even a tiny bit. - Good. I was so worried for you! - Scouts again. - Gena... Let's ask if we can join. - No, Cheburashka, they won't take us. - Why not? Maybe they will. Come on, let's try! - All right, let's try! - Hello. - Hello! - Will you let us join you? - You? Join our scout troop? No way. - We could take you to the pets corner. - We don't want to be pets! We want to be scouts! - Do you know how to make bird houses? - No, we don't. - Ever had to set up a campfire? - No, never. - Perhaps you know how to march? - No idea. - See. You guys are not ready yet. - Besides. Being scouts is only for the best of the best! - But... we will become the best of the best! - Great. Do come back then. - Bah. - It's no use. - Don't worry, Gena. We'll take a break and then try to fix it one more time. - You could have hurt yourself! - When I was a young crocodile, I never climbed fire escapes. - Good thing we got here in time! - I won't do it again! - You won't? Be careful. - Why, why on earth did you do that! Have you got nothing better to do? - No. - We have nothing to do! - They have nowhere to play. That's why they go where they shouldn't. - Okay, we'll help them. - What's in that little house? - Nothing. *Dangerous!* - We'll get rid of all this stuff. - Here, we'll put a bench, and over here a window. - And it'll be a little house. Where they can play. - Hurray! *Dangerous!* - No. Let's not build anything there. - And for Cheburashka's birthday ... ... we baked bread with caraway ... ... it was tall like so ... ... it was low like so ... ... it was wide like so ... - Wow, that's a lot of firewood. Are we going to build a campfire? - Nope, we're going to build a playground for little kids. - Here, play some swings for now. - Hey, you guys need any help? - Thanks, but you guys are already busy. - Oh, come on, let me have a go! - No way! - You might let go of the jackhammer. - Now they definitely won't let us join. - Mr. Crocodile? - Wh... what? - That's you who stole the compressor? - Yes, it was me who stole it. - And how were you planning to use it? - We, uh... We already used it. - We built a playground for little kids. - Hah, good job! - Don't worry about the compressor. I'll return it myself. - Good bye! - Cheers, guys! - Rus-ted pot or bro-ken ket-tle? - We re-cyc-le your scrap metal! - Cheburashka! I know this one place, there's tons of scrap metal there! - Oh dear. Looks like I'll have to dive to get him. - But I have no idea how to swim! - Cheburashka! Don't just stand there! - What? - Give me a hand! - Come on! - Pull! - Bring it over. - Where? - Here. We got this for you. - We wanted to help you out. - Hurray! - The first place is ours! - We're very happy for you! - Bye now. - Wait! - We accept you in our troop! - Us? In your troop? - But we don't know how to march or how to make bird houses. - That's not important. You did so many other good deeds! - And we'll teach you how to march! - Troop line up! - Attention! - March forward!
