OUGHT TO HOLD IT. [ SQUEAKING ] HI, BEN… HI. WELL, HELLO TO YOU, TOO,
BROTHER AND SISTER. YOU’RE LOOKING MIGHTY
CHEERFUL TODAY. THAT’S BECAUSE
SCHOOL’S OUT. YEP, IT’S THE FIRST
DAY OF SUMMER. IS THAT SO? DO YOU CUBS
HAVE ANY PLANS? NOPE. JUST TO HAVE FUN. HA, HA, THAT SOUNDS
LIKE A FINE PLAN TO ME. WHAT ARE YOU
DOING THIS SUMMER? OH, THIS IS THE BUSIEST
TIME OF THE YEAR FOR ME. NOT ONLY DO THE CROPS
NEED TENDING, BUT I STILL HAVE ALL OF
MY REGULAR CHORES TO DO, TOO. AND THEN, THERE ARE ALWAYS
THINGS THAT NEED FIXING — LIKE THIS GATE. AHH… LISTEN TO THAT. I DON’T HEAR
ANYTHING. UMM…ME NEITHER. YOU SHOULDN’T HEAR ANYTHING. AND THAT’S HOW I LIKE IT. [ ROOSTER CROWING
AND COW MOOING ] HA, HA, PEACE AND QUIET
DOESN’T LAST LONG AROUND HERE. NOW, I HAVE COWS TO MILK
AND CHICKENS TO FEED. GEE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN. CAN WE HELP? I DON’T SEE WHY NOT. NEAT! GREAT! [ BEN ]: NOW THEN,
MOST OF THE TIME THE HENS LAY THEIR EGGS
IN THEIR NESTS… BUT NOT ALWAYS. SOMETIMES, THEY LAY THEM IN
HIDDEN PLACES AROUND THE COOP — INSIDE AND OUT. OH…SO YOU HAVE
TO LOOK FOR THEM. LIKE AN
EASTER EGG HUNT. LET’S SEE WHO
CAN FIND THE MOST. OK. WHILE YOU’RE
DOING THAT, I’LL GO FEED THE HOGS. ♪ BEN! BEN! WE EACH FOUND
SIX EGGS. LOOK. THAT’S A DOZEN
BY MY CALCULATIONS. IT WAS FUN. UH-HUH. NOW, WHY DON’T
WE GO MILK BESSIE. [ COW MOOING ] ♪ GOOD WORK, BROTHER. THAT SHOULD JUST
ABOUT DO IT. HA, HA, HA, NOW I HAVE TO GIVE
SOME TO MY MOUSE CONTROL TEAM. ♪ [ SISTER ]: THERE YOU GO,
LITTLE GUY. THANKS FOR LETTING US HELP
WITH THE CHORES TODAY, BEN. NO — THANK YOU. IT’S NICE HAVING SOME HELP,
AND I ENJOY THE COMPANY. HA, I’D LOVE
TO DO THIS EVERY DAY. ME TOO. IT WOULD BE FUN
TO BE A FARMER. WELL, SINCE
YOU HAVEN’T MADE PLANS FOR THE SUMMER,
HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY YOUR HAND
AT FARMING… WITH ME? SURE. OK. NOW, YOUR PART OF
THE CORN CROP WILL BE FROM THAT
BIG OAK TREE DOWN TO HERE.OURPART OF
THE CORN CROP? SURE, IF YOU’RE GOING
TO WORK WITH ME ON THE FARM, YOU DESERVE A SHARE
OF WHAT THE FARM PRODUCES. GEE, I LIKE CORN, BUT I DON’T THINK I COULD
EAT A WHOLE FIELD OF IT. HA, HA, NO, YOU CALL THIS
YOUR CASH CROP. CASH CROP? UH-HUH. YOU SEE, SOME CROPS ARE
GROWN TO FEED THE FARM ANIMALS AND SOME, LIKE THIS SWEET CORN,
ARE GROWN TO SELL AT THE MARKET. OH… YOU COULD USE MY
ROADSIDE STAND IF YOU WANT. LOTS OF FOLKS STOP TO BUY
VEGETABLES FRESH FROM THE FIELD. I COULD PAINT A SIGN
THAT LOOKS LIKE A COB OF CORN. AND I COULD DO THE SELLING. STEP RIGHT UP, FOLKS! GET YOUR SWEET CORN
RIGHT OVER HERE! THE SWEETEST CORN
IN BEAR COUNTRY! HA, HA, HA, I THINK YOU’D MAKE
QUITE A SALESBEAR. HA, MAYBE, BUT BEING A FARMER
IS WHAT I’M BEST AT. ME TOO. COME ON, BROTHER. WE HAVE MORE
CHORES TO DO. SEE YOU LATER, BEN. [ CROWING ] [ STRAINING ] [ STRAINING ] [ SIGHING ] [ STRAINING ] [ ENGINE STARTING ] [ STRAINING ] [ SIGHING ] THIS IS GETTING TO BE
A LONG SUMMER. YOU SAID IT. I THOUGHT FARMING
WAS GOING TO BE FUN. ARE YOU THINKING
WHAT I’M THINKING? CALLING IT QUITS? YEP, I’M THINKING
WHAT YOU’RE THINKING. BUT HOW DO WE TELL
FARMER BEN? WELL… LET’S SAY
THAT WE’VE LEARNED EVERYTHING ABOUT
FARMING AND NOW WE’RE GOING
TO SPEND THE REST OF OUR SUMMER
LEARNING OTHER THINGS. AND WE’LL THANK HIM. AND HE CAN KEEP OUR PART
OF THE CORN FIELD. BREAK TIME,
YOU TWO. I FIGURED YOU COULD USE SOME ICE COLD LEMONADE
RIGHT ABOUT NOW. PHEW, I KNOWICOULD. THANKS, BEN. THANK YOU. YOU’RE WELCOME. FARMER BEN, THERE’S SOMETHING
WE… WANTED TO SAY. WELL, THERE’S SOMETHING
I’VE BEEN MEANING TO SAY, TOO. YOU CUBS ARE DOING A GREAT JOB. WITH YOUR HELP AROUND THE FARM, I’VE HAD TIME
TO DO OTHER THINGS, LIKE FIX MY TRACTOR. AND I JUST WANT
TO SAY THANK YOU. UH… YOU’RE WELCOME. NOW, WHAT WAS IT
YOU WANTED TO TELL ME? WELL, WE JUST
WANTED TO SAY THAT– UH, THANKS FOR
THE LEMONADE. WE SURE
WERE THIRSTY. I’M NOT SURPRISED. IT’S PRETTY HOT. SPEAKING OF WHICH, I’M GETTING
WORRIED ABOUT OUR CORN CROP. HOW COME? IT HASN’T RAINED FOR WEEKS NOW. IT’S A SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS
FOR THIS CORN. AND WE MIGHT LOSE
THE WHOLE CROP. LOSE THE WHOLE CROP? AFTER ALL
THAT WORK? WELL, THIS IS THE TOUGH PART
ABOUT BEING A FARMER. YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR CHANCES
WITH MOTHER NATURE. AND THERE’S NOTHING
YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT? WELL, WE JUST HAVE TO
HOPE FOR RAIN, AND KEEP UP WITH
ALL THE OTHER CHORES THAT NEED TO BE DONE
AROUND HERE. WHICH IS WHAT
I’D BETTER GET BACK TO. I’LL SEE YOU LATER, CUBS. BYE, BEN. BYE. GEE, FARMER BEN IS GOING
TO LOSE HIS WHOLE CROP. HE DOESN’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT
LOSING HIS HELPERS, TOO. I KNOW. THE WEATHER MAY BE LETTING
HIM DOWN, BUT WE WON’T. YOU’RE RIGHT. [ SIGHING ] IT’S TOO BAD
WE CAN’T MAKE IT RAIN. HEY! THERE’S THE OLD PUMP. WE COULD GET WATER FROM THERE. YOU MEAN WATER
THE FIELD BY HAND? THAT COULD TAKE FOREVER. THEN WE’D BETTER GET STARTED. RIGHT, BROTHER? RIGHT. [ GRUNTING ] I THINK MY ARMS
ARE GOING TO FALL OFF. MMM, WELL,
IF THEY DO, CAN I USE THEM
TO CARRY TWO MORE PAILS? I HAVEN’T EVEN GOTTEN
TO THE THIRD ROW OF CORN YET. WE MAY NOT GET OUR END
OF THE FIELD WATERED, BUT AT LEAST WE CAN SAVE
SOME OF FARMER BEN’S CROP. [ TRACTOR ENGINE RUNNING ] IF YOU TWO HAVE THE GUMPTION
TO WATER THE FIELD BY HAND, THE LEAST I CAN DO
IS LIGHTEN YOUR LOAD. PUT THOSE UP ON
THE WAGON, BROTHER. OK. WE FARMERS
HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER. YEP, WE SURE DO. AHH… THAT’S ENOUGH FOR TODAY. BUT THERE’S STILL A LOT TO DO. WE CAN’T
STOP NOW. YOU’RE ALREADY LATE FOR SUPPER. I DON’T WANT YOU
TO BE LATE FOR BEDTIME, TOO. WE’LL START AGAIN
FIRST THING IN THE MORNING. OK… ALL RIGHT. SEE YOU, BEN… BYE, BEN. HA, HA, HA, THOSE CUBS
HAVE GUMPTION TO SPARE. [ THUNDER RUMBLING ] [ THUNDER RUMBLING ] [ GASPING ] SISTER! IT’S RAINING. [ BROTHER ]: BEN! BEN! [ CHUCKLING ] AHH, THIS IS THE FINEST
CROP I’VE HAD IN YEARS. I RECKON WE FARMERS ARE GOING TO
DO ALL RIGHT. WE’RE GOING
TO DO JUST FINE. AHH… WE SURE ARE. IT WAS SO NICE OF YOU
TO INVITE US TO YOUR HARVEST
CELEBRATION, BEN. WELL, YOU CAN THANK YOUR CUBS. IT WAS THEIR IDEA AND
THEY PROVIDED THE CORN. PLUS WE GAVE SOME
TO GRAN AND GRAMPS, SOME TO WIDDER JONES AND
SOME TO TEACHER JANE. AND THE REST WE SOLD
AT BEN’S ROADSIDE STAND. YOU TWO SOUND LIKE VERY
SUCCESSFUL FARMERS. WE LEARNED A LOT
OVER THE SUMMER. UH-HUH. I’M GLAD WE STUCK TO IT
WHEN THE GOING GOT TOUGH. ME TOO. NOW THEN, WHO WANTS MORE? ME, PLEASE. [ GIGGLING ] THAT’S YOUR
FIFTH ONE, PAPA. I’M JUST DOING MY PART TO
SUPPORT OUR LOCAL FARMERS. [ LAUGHING ] OH, PAPA. [ LAUGHING ] THANKS, PAPA. [ BROTHER ]: THE
BEST THINGS TO HAVE DON’T ALWAYS COME
FROM A STORE. [ SISTER ]: WHEN YOU MAKE IT YOURSELF, IT MEANS A LOT MORE. WOW, LOOK AT THAT ONE! THAT ONE’S
THE BEST. NO WAY, THAT BLUE ONE
IS WAY BETTER. WILL YOU LOOK AT THEM. [ GASPING ] THE DRAGON IS MINE. CALLED IT. IT’S THE ONE THAT’S GOING
TO WIN THE KITE-FLYING CONTEST. SORRY TO
DISAPPOINT YOU, TOO-TALL, BUT ACCORDING
TO MY CALCULATIONS, THE BOX KITE IS
THE MOST AERODYNAMIC. IT WILL FLY BETTER. WE’LL SEE
ABOUT THAT. I SAY THE BLUE BUTTERFLY
IS GOING TO WIN. HEY, LOOK… IF WE DON’T GET HOME AND ASK
OUR PARENTS FOR ONE REAL QUICK, ALL THE KITES ARE
GOING TO BE GONE. [ GASPING ] [ WHISTLING ] I THOUGHT YOU’D ALREADY
GONE FISHING. I JUST HAVE TO GET MY TACKLE– WHOA-OA…! BOX. SORRY, PAPA. WHAT’S THE RUSH? THERE ARE THESE
KITES AT BEAR-MART. AND THEY’RE COOL,
REALLY COOL. AND IF WE DON’T GET
DOWN THERE AND BUY ONE RIGHT NOW,
THEY’RE ALL GOING TO BE GONE. THEN WE CAN’T ENTER
THE KITE-FLYING CONTEST. AH, A KITE-FLYING CONTEST?
HA, YOU DON’T SAY? CAN WE GO,
PAPA? WELL, IT JUST SO HAPPENS
YOUR PAPA IS A KITE EXPERT FROM WAY BACK. UH, IS THAT A YES? YOU BETCHA. OK, LET’S GO. ALL RIGHT! YAY! I SUPPOSE THIS MEANS
NO FISHING TODAY? NOT WHEN THERE ARE
KITES TO BE FLOWN. OH, I KNOW THAT LOOK, HA-HA. [ BROTHER ]: PAPA, WHERE ARE YOU GOING? A BETTER QUESTION IS
WHERE AREYOUGOING? TO BEAR-MART TO BUY KITES. HA-HA, YOU DON’T NEED TO BUY
A KITE WHEN YOU CAN MAKE ONE. MAKE ONE? WHY, YOU’RE LOOKING
AT BEAR COUNTRY’S NUMBER ONE KITE-OLOGIST. NOT ONLY CAN WE MAKE A KITE, IT WILL BE THE MOST
HIGH-FLYINGEST KITE YOU’VE EVER SEEN. THOSE STORE-BOUGHT KITES
WON’T STAND A CHANCE. COOL! WHAT COLOUR IS IT
GOING TO BE, PAPA? IS IT GOING
TO BE BIG? YOU BETCHA. [ PAPA ]: NOW, WE NEED SOME LONG STICKS,
STRAIGHT AND STRONG. AH…SOME HEAVY STRING. [ STRAINING ] IT’S STUCK! HUH? [ GIGGLING ] STICKS. STICKS. STRING. STRING. PAPER. PAPER. SCISSORS. SCISSORS. ROCK. ROCK? [ LAUGHING ] JUST KIDDING. GLUE. WELL? WOW. IT’S AWESOME! IT’S THE BEST! IT’S GOING TO BE THE HIGHEST,
FLYINGEST KITE EVER. EVEN HIGHER
THAN THAT. YEP, IT’S NOT BAD.
NOT BAD AT ALL. LET’S TAKE
BIG RED OUT FOR A TEST
FLIGHT, PAPA. HA, “BIG RED”, IS IT? YEAH, WE WANT
TO FLY BIG RED. WELL, THIS BRINGS US TO
THE LAST CRUCIAL INGREDIENT: PATIENCE. HUH? WHAT? WE HAVE TO WAIT A WHILE TO MAKE
SURE THE GLUE’S GOOD AND DRY. THEN WE CAN TAKE BIG RED
OUT FOR A TEST FLIGHT. OK? OK. [ SISTER ]: BUT PAPA SAID WE
HAVE TO WAIT A WHILE LONGER. I KNOW. I, I JUST
WANT TO SEE IT AGAIN. WAIT TILL EVERYBODY SEES IT.
THEY’RE GOING TO BE SO JEALOUS. UH-HUH. BUT LET’S BE CAREFUL
NOT TO BRAG TOO MUCH. IT MIGHT MAKE THEM FEEL BAD. MAYBE WE CAN
SHOW THEM HOW TO MAKE THEIR
OWN KITES…AFTERTHE CONTEST. [ LAUGHING ] HEY, BROTHER, LOOK. WOW! THAT’S FARMER BEN’S FIELD.
LET’S GO! OH, LOOK, THE FLOWER KITE. IT’S SO PRETTY. HEY, BROTHER,
CHECK IT OUT. WOW, FREDDY, IT SURE IS HIGH. AND I’M ONLY PRACTICING.
WAIT TILL THE CONTEST. HEY, WHERE’S YOUR KITE? HAVEN’T YOU
BOUGHT ONE YET? WE’RE NOT BUYING A KITE, FREDDY. YOU’RE NOT BUYING A KITE?
BUT WHAT ABOUT THE CONTEST? OH, WE’RE ENTERING
THE CONTEST, ALL RIGHT. BUT WE’RE MAKING OUR KITE. ALL BY OURSELVES. WELL, WITH A LITTLE
HELP FROM PAPA. WHO WOULD WANT
TO MAKE A KITE WHEN YOU CAN JUST
BUY A BEAUTIFUL BLUE BUTTERFLY LIKE MINE? I’LL BET YOU A QUARTER
YOUR HOMEMADE KITE DOESN’T EVEN GET OFF THE GROUND. BIG REDISGOING TO FLY. IT’S GOING TO BE THE MOST
HIGHEST, FLYINGEST KITE EVER. JUST WAIT
AND SEE. SEE YOU AT THE CONTEST. ALL SET FOR A TEST FLIGHT? YAY… YEAH, HA-HA-HA! WE HAVE TO KEEP RUNNING UNTIL
BIG RED CATCHES THE BREEZE. READY? GO! [ PANTING ] FASTER…PAPA, WE,
WE HAVE TO GO FASTER. TRY IT, UH…
TRY IT AGAIN. [ PANTING ] OHH… I CAN’T…
UNDERSTAND IT. MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE
BIG RED IS NEW. IT JUST NEEDS A WHILE
TO FIGURE OUT, UH… WHAT IT’S SUPPOSED TO DO. UH-HUH. [ PANTING ] ONE… MORE… TIME. HMM. YES… YEAH, HA-HA! OHH, THAT’S NOT WHAT’S
SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. I THINK IN ALL
YOUR EXCITEMENT, PAPA, YOU FORGOT THAT
EVERY KITE NEEDS A TAIL TO KEEP IT STEADY. AND AN OLD-TIMED
KITE-OLOGIST LIKE YOU, TOO. TSK, TSK, TSK, HEE-HEE. [ PANTING ] BIG RED IS FLYING, PAPA! BIG RED IS– AWW… OH, MAYBE I FORGOT
SOMETHING ELSE. I’M GOING TO TAKE ANOTHER
LOOK AT THOSE KITE PLANS. HA-HA, LOOKS LIKE YOU OWE ME A QUARTER. TOLD YOU YOUR HOMEMADE KITE
WOULDN’T GET OFF THE GROUND. [ LAUGHING ] THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH BIG
RED. IT’S A GOOD, STRONG KITE. IT’LL BE A HIGH FLYER, TOO.
BUT IT’S HEAVY. A KITE LIKE THAT NEEDS A GOOD,
STIFF WIND, OTHERWISE… OHH. IT’S ALL MY FAULT. I DESIGNED IT TOO BIG. I TELL YOU WHAT. IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO GET
A KITE AT BEAR-MART. BUT BIG RED
IS OUR KITE. WE MADE IT. AND IT’S A GOOD
KITE. RIGHT, PAPA? OH, I THINK WE’VE
MADE A SUPER KITE. BUT WE NEED A GOOD,
STRONG WIND FOR IT TO FLY. WE MADE BIG RED TOGETHER
AND BIG RED IS THE KITE WE WANT TO TAKE TO THE CONTEST. THAT’S RIGHT. IF A GOOD, STRONG WIND DOESN’T
COME, THEN IT DOESN’T COME. BESIDES, WE REALLY DON’T CARE
ABOUT WINNING THE CONTEST. SISTER IS RIGHT. WE JUST WANT TO SEE BIG RED FLY. OK THEN, IF THAT’S
WHAT YOU WANT, THEN THAT’S WHAT WE’LL DO. ALL OR NOTHING FOR BIG RED. [ LAUGHING ] ♪ HMM, HARDLY A BREEZE. OH, WELL. NOW THIS TIME, YOU TWO
ARE GOING TO HOLD THE STRING. I’M TALLER. I CAN HOLD
THE KITE UP HIGHER. ♪ NOT ENOUGH WIND. [ PANTING ] YOU’RE…
TELLING ME. AHH, PLEASE, PAPA. WE CAN’T GIVE UP.
THE WIND WILL COME. I KNOW IT WILL —
WE JUST HAVE TO TRY
SOME MORE. JUST ONE MORE TRY, OK? OK, BUT LET’S GET
GRAVITY ON OUR SIDE. RUNNING DOWNHILL IS EASIER. YES! CHARGE! HUH, I FEEL… HA-HA, WIND! OH, FASTER, FASTER! ♪ HELP, MY BOX KITE
IS TOO AERODYNAMIC! UH-OH. ♪ [ STRAINING ] [ SISTER ]: OH… UH-OH. HOLD ON! [ STRAINING ] HA, HA… BIG RED WANTS
TO GO INTO ORBIT. WHOA! SORRY I LAUGHED AT
YOUR KITE, BROTHER. DO YOU THINK YOU COULD
SHOW ME HOW TO MAKE ONE? ME TOO. NO PROBLEM. RIGHT, SISTER? YOU BETCHA. ♪ WELL, WHO WON? NO ONE DID. EVERYONE HAD SO MUCH
FUN FLYING BIG RED, WE ALL FORGOT ABOUT THE CONTEST. AND YOU KNOW WHAT WAS JUST
AS MUCH FUN AS FLYING BIG RED? MAKING BIG RED WITH
YOU AND MAMA AND PAPA. ALL TOGETHER. ♪
