Gone to the zoo.] [Zoo] - Here. - Nope, this one won't do. A beastie unknown to science. They have no idea where to put him. - I like this critter. He looks kinda like a defective toy. - You can work here, with us. You can sit in the shop window and attract clients. Got that? - Yes, got it. But where will I live? - Live? Hm... Let's see... What about right here? We'll call this your "house," so to speak. Okay? - Mm-hmm. [African crocodile, Gena. Feeding and petting is allowed.] In that city lived a crocodile, named Gena.

The crocodile. - Have you got any milk? - Well yes, of course. - Give it to Tobik. - Tobik. - I'll clean up a bit. It's such a mess in here. [Gena] - Who's there? - It's me, Cheburashka. - Cheburashka? - What are you supposed to be? - I... I don't know. - Would you happen to be a baby bear? - Could be. I really don't know. - One moment, we'll find out! - All right, che... ch... ch... ch... chai... champion... ...cheapskate... ...Cheboksary. Strange. No such thing as "cheburashka." - Does that...

Darkness. - Lariska, come! - Were you the one who wrote this? - Yes indeed. - That's good. Good that you're so green. And... and flat! - Why on earth? - Isn't that obvious? If you lie down on the lawn nobody will notice you. Then you toss a wallet on a string! A passer-by bends down to pick it up but the wallet runs away! Sweet, huh? - No. That's NOT sweet. - In fact, it's just dumb. - What!? Then I'm declaring a war on you! Good day! - Leo. Leo Chandr. - Gena. The crocodile. Please meet my friends. - Nice. Me, I don't have any friends. - Me! I'll be your friend! - Oh, excellent. Now I will no longer be alone. - You know... there are lots of lonely people in our town. Just like Chandr and Tobik. And nobody is there to help when they are sad and lonely. - I'd love to help them! - And me! Me too! But how? - I just thought of something! They can all be friends with each-other! And so, they decided to build a house for those who don't have any friends. [BUILDING SITE] [BOARD OF FAME] - Stop! - Up! - Down! - Off with it! - Pick up the slack! - Get on with it! - Excuse me. Are you building a house here? - Here. - Do you guys need any help? - Of course we do! Join in. And you guys, too. [ATTENTION!] - Help! Thieves! - Phew. He can't get me up here. Peek-a-boo! Ten days later, the house was ready. [House of Friends] [Greetings from Chapeau-Claque!] - Now, Cheburashka will say a speech. - We were building and building... ...and we finally built it! Hurray! - And now, we will sign up anyone who needs a friend. - Why sign up? We're all good friends already! - Indeed. We all became good friends during this construction. - Hang on. Does this mean... that we building and building, and all for nothing? - No, not for nothing! It was us who made them all friends! And this house can be Cheburashka's! Since right now he lives in a phone booth, right? - Right. - No, no, no! Let's give this house to a daycare. And I can work there as a toy! If they take me, of course, since nobody knows who or what I am. - What do you mean, "nobody knows?" Everyone knows! - We'll give you good recommendation! - And us! We will, too! - Hey, look! - I'll be good now, I promise. Signed: Chapeau-Claque. [The End]
