00:00:38 [ Giggling ] Ah.
00:00:44 [ Sniffing ] Ah!
00:01:05 [ Man Narrating ]You know that spring is here...
00:01:07 when the leavesstart growing on trees-- Yay! [ Hooting ] the sun feels warmer-- [ Chittering ] and a little monkey danceson his balcony at sunrise.
00:01:22 [ Chuckling ] I think you have spring fever, George.
00:01:27 Huh?
00:01:27 Well, you're excited because spring is here.
00:01:31 [ Chitters ] Uh, what's spring?
00:01:35 Ah. You know what? Let's get outside and I'll show you.
00:01:39 Uh-huh!
00:01:41 And where are you boys headed on this beautiful day?
00:01:45 I'm taking George to the parkto explain spring.
00:01:49 I can explain it right here.
00:01:52 Spring is one of the four seasons.
00:01:55 Remember summer?
00:01:57 [ Narrator ]George remembered summer.
00:02:00 Yeah!
00:02:02 Hundley did too.
00:02:05 Oh.
00:02:07 Then came fall. Remember?
00:02:10 Uh-huh. [ Whines ] Aha!
00:02:14 [ Giggles ] [ Low Bark ] Then it was winter.
00:02:23 Ah. [ Giggles ] Hey! [ Stammers ] Oh.
00:02:33 Well, now it's spring!
00:02:35 Does that explain it for you, George?
00:02:38 Uh-uh.
00:02:39 Oh. Well, I guess the best way to learn is experience.
00:02:44 See you soon. Bye.
00:02:46 Enjoy the park.
00:02:50 Ah! [ Chitters ] [ Scoffs ] Oh. [ Chitters ] [ Narrator ]Hundley already knewwhat spring meant-- some new mess Georgehadn't learned how to make yet.
00:03:09 Can you see the changes that tell you it's spring?
00:03:13 [ Chittering ] See? All around it's green and warm.

00:05:37 Do you have spring fever?
00:05:39 Betsy thinks that's why you're running around by yourself being crazy.
00:05:44 Oh, I'm not by myself. I'm with George.
00:05:48 Geor-- Well, he was right, uh, here.
00:05:53 It's okay. There's no law against being crazy without a monkey.
00:05:57 Aunt Margret always says, "You're having fun, that's what counts." [ Chuckling ] Yeah.
00:06:02 Uh, if you're looking for Charkie, she ran that way.
00:06:05 Thanks. Charkie!
00:06:09 Happy spring fever!
00:06:13 Oh! Ooh. [ Chuckles ] Hey, can you believe all the new spring things, George? Yeah!
00:06:19 [ Narrator ]All the way home, Georgecouldn't stop thinking about...
00:06:23 taking Hundley to the park.
00:06:24 He didn't wanthis best dog friendto miss all the fun.
00:06:32 [ Growling, Panting ] [ Chitters ] [ Chuckles ] I've never seen you guys playing in the lobby before.
00:06:40 - Spring fever? - Huh?
00:06:42 That's when spring comes, and all you want to do is play.
00:06:47 [ Hooting ] [ Narrator ]Hundley would never allowhimself to have spring fever.
00:06:51 [ Gasps ]That's undignified.
00:06:54 We're not playing. We're polishing the railings.
00:06:59 Faster, Hundley.
00:07:01 [ Hundley Growling ] [ Giggling ] We want to win the mayor's spring-cleaning prize...
00:07:07 for the springiest, "cleaniest" building.
00:07:09 And we have some stiff competition from Lydia across the alley.
00:07:13 Come on. I'll show ya.
00:07:18 Wow! Wow!
00:07:21 Hi, hi there!
00:07:22 Hi! Hi!
00:07:23 Oh, you're cleaning with simple rags and mops.
00:07:26 Don't you want to win?
00:07:30 Oh?
00:07:33 Wow. Lydia's got some ultramodern equipment.
00:07:37 [ Growls ] Technology is no match for a doorman with a plan and a dachshund.
00:07:45 I hope.
00:07:45 We better work extra hard to be extra clean, Hundley.
00:07:51 [ Low Bark ] [ Low Bark ] Oh, you've been working hard, Hundley. Take a break.
00:08:02 [ Narrator ]Hundley spent a long timelooking at ankles.
00:08:06 That's why he liked the roof.
00:08:09 Standing up herewas like beingthe tallest dog in the world.
00:08:16 Hi!
00:08:19 Hiya, George!
00:08:20 [ Narrator ]George hoped, now that Hundleywas finished cleaning-- [ Hoots ] Ha?
00:08:26 [ Chittering ] he'd want to go to the park.
00:08:30 - [ Low Bark ] - Oh!
00:08:32 Hundley isn't interested in anything else...
00:08:34 until we win that spring-cleaning prize.
00:08:38 [ Whines ] [ Narrator ]Cleaning this whole buildingwould take a long time.
00:08:47 [ Gasps ] Ah.
00:08:48 But maybe Hundley could goto the park sooner if Georgehelped with the cleaning.
00:08:55 Ah.
00:09:00 Ah.
00:09:01 [ Narrator ]Now where could a cleaningmonkey do the most good?
00:09:04 [ George ] Oh.
00:09:11 Oh.
00:09:12 Not all questionsare hard to answer.
00:09:17 [ Groans ] [ Giggling, Coughing ] [ Giggles ] Ha!
00:09:31 The doorman and Hundleywere sure gonna be surprised...
00:09:35 when they sawwhat a monkey could do.
00:09:43 [ Hissing ] Now, let's get to work on the basement.
00:09:50 [ Barks ] Oh, gee. That's not right.
00:09:57 [ Barking ] [ Siren Wailing ] Ah, that's not smoke. That's steam.
00:10:09 Yeah. I have a building full of steam.
00:10:12 Can you do anything?
00:10:15 Why don't we get any normal calls?
00:10:18 Do we even do steam? Who does steam? [ Vehicle Approaches ] Relax, everyone.
00:10:29 I'm a plumber. I do steam.
00:10:31 He must've been trying to steam clean the entire place.
00:10:37 He is so competitive.
00:10:40 [ Meows ] [ Hissing ] [ Hissing Stops ] This broom fell against the handle.
00:10:49 [ Gasps, Stammers ] George, you did it?
00:10:54 Ah. [ Chuckles ] You deserve a thank you, George. [ Chitters ] Steam blasted the dirt away and uncovered some bad pipes.
00:11:03 They need to be replaced from here all the way to the roof.
00:11:08 That'll make a mess!
00:11:10 Can't it wait till after the contest? [ Water Rushing ] I take it that's a no.
00:11:17 [ Grunts ] I have to turn off all the water.
00:11:21 Yep. Everyone has to get out of the building for a few days.
00:11:28 [ Whines ] [ Dings ] [ Chattering ] [ Giggling ] [ Groans ] - [ Low Bark ] - Hi!
00:11:50 Huh. It's lucky everyone could find places to stay on such short notice.
00:11:56 Almost everyone.
00:11:57 I can't find anywhere that will allow...
00:12:01 D-a-c-h-s-h-u-n-d-s.
00:12:05 D-A-C-S-- W-Wait. What?
00:12:10 D-o-g-s.
00:12:13 Huh?
00:12:13 I can't find anywhere for... Hundley.
00:12:18 Oh. Hey!
00:12:21 [ Chittering ] Hey, yeah. Hundley can come with us to the country house.
00:12:27 We have plenty of room.
00:12:28 How would you like to go to the country for a few days...
00:12:33 wi your buddy George?
00:12:36 Oh?
00:12:37 [ Chittering ] But I have to stick around here.
00:12:42 You'll be going without me.
00:12:46 [ Whines ] Don't forget Hundley's pillow.
00:12:51 I promise I'll bring you home as soon as the pipe's fixed.
00:12:56 Oh.
00:12:57 Then we'll have time to clean up and win that contest!
00:13:00 [ George Shouts ] [ Hundley Barks ] I hope.
00:13:09 Whoa. That shouldn't happen.
00:13:11 Uh, this job may be bigger than I thought.
00:13:14 Uh, by bigger, you mean take longer?
00:13:27 [ Whines ] [ Sighs ] [ Narrator ]The only thing George knewthat was powerful enough...
00:13:35 to cheer up someone that sad...
00:13:38 was spring fever.
00:13:40 Aha!Of course.
00:13:42 If George taught himto love spring, Hundley would catchspring fever and be happy.
00:13:48 [ Chittering ] [ Chittering ] [ Gasps ] George was goingto make this a tripHundley would never forget.
00:14:07 [ George Chittering ] [ Narrator ]To get started, George thought he'd explainwhat The Man taught him...
00:14:13 about how things changein spring.
00:14:16 [ Chittering ] Birds make nests for their eggs.
00:14:21 Horses have their foals.
00:14:23 Butterflies are everywhere.
00:14:26 -And-- - [ George Chittering ] Hundley thought Georgehad the worst case ofspring fever he'd ever seen.
00:14:37 [ Chittering Continues ] Hundley would never let himselfget spring fever like that.
00:14:42 [ Groaning ] It was too undignified.
00:14:45 [ Chittering ] Oh.
00:14:53 See, guys!
00:14:53 Right there is where the spring balloon rally's gonna be.
00:14:58 [ Chittering ] You know, George.
00:14:59 Every spring, people fly balloons representing all the stuff that's grown around here.
00:15:05 Oh. [ Giggles ] [ Groans ] [ Chitters ] [ Narrator ]Getting Hundley interestedin spring things...
00:15:14 was going to bea real challenge.
00:15:24 Okay. We're here!
00:15:26 [ Boy ] Hey, you guys!
00:15:29 [ Chittering ] Who's that?
00:15:34 Hi, Bill. That's Hundley.
00:15:37 [ Low Bark ] [ Chittering ] [ Narrator ]George thought Hundley wouldlike to see Bill's bunnies.
00:15:42 Who doesn't enjoyseeing bunnies?
00:15:45 - [ Groans ] - [ Chitters ] [ Chittering ] [ Sniffing ] [ Narrator ]So, these were bunnies?
00:16:01 They didn't seem to do too much.
00:16:04 [ Groans ] Oh.
00:16:07 Hey. Would you please join the balloon rally organizing team?
00:16:12 So far it's just me and Allie.
00:16:14 You and Allie?
00:16:16 Isn't she... four?
00:16:18 I'm... five!
00:16:22 And I won the contest.
00:16:24 [ Chuckles ] She won a contest...
00:16:26 to be the rally starter, and now she thinks she's in charge.
00:16:29 [ Chuckles ] I'm more than happy to help out.
00:16:33 George. You want to help me?
00:16:34 I'm looking for Harold Mandelbrot.
00:16:37 Ah?
00:16:38 Bill's bunny, Harold Mandelbrot.
00:16:42 She always forgets a simple bunny name.
00:16:46 No one name's a bunny Harold Mandelbrot.
00:16:49 It's Herbert Nenninger.
00:16:51 [ Giggles ] [ Chittering ] Harold!
00:17:00 Ha-- Oops. I mean, Herbie!
00:17:04 [ Sniffs ] [ George Chittering ] [ Allie ] Herbie!
00:17:15 [ Sniffing ] Hmm? [ Low Bark ] [ Barking ] [ George Chittering ] Hey, you found him! Yippee! You're free.
00:17:25 - Great job, Hundley. - [ Chitters ] [ Chuckles ] What a good nose job! Huh?
00:17:34 I don't think you mean nose job.
00:17:36 He did the job with his nose. What else would you call it?
00:17:40 Oh.
00:17:41 [ Giggling ] [ Groaning ] [ Narrator ]Hundley obviously wouldn't behappy till he had spring fever.
00:17:47 George had to make himlove spring, and fast.
00:17:56 No one plans like a monkey.
00:17:58 So George made a listof fun country spring things.
00:18:02 He'd take Hundleyto see these things, spring. [ Laughing ] George's plan had to work.
00:18:16 [ Whines ] Or Hundley might nevermove from his pillow.
00:18:20 - [ Door Creaks ] - Sweet dreams, fellas.
00:18:25 [ Chitters ] Good night, buddy.
00:18:36 [ Groans ] [ Snoring ] [ Narrator ] In the morning,George showed Hundleythe blooming green hills, which during winter hadbeen brown with snow on top.
00:18:57 [ Chittering ] [ Bill ] Hey! [ Chitters ] Hey, you guys.
00:19:03 [ Chittering ] I guess a city kid and a city dog don't get a lot of canoe rides, huh?
00:19:10 [ Hooting ] [ Chittering ] [ Groans ] [ Narrator ]Not wanting to be alonein the country, Hundley went along.
00:19:22 [ Chittering ] [ Groans ] [ Gasps ] City kids wouldn't know this, but in spring the river's fast and cold...
00:19:30 because melted snow flows down from the hills.
00:19:33 [ Chittering ] [ Groans ] [ Low Bark ] [ Barks ] Ah? Whoa, George!
00:19:52 Whoa! Ah!
00:19:53 George, you should never stand in a canoe because-- [ All Shout ] that might happen.
00:20:02 [ Chuckles ] It's too early in the season to go swimming, guys.
00:20:07 That water is cold.
00:20:10 [ Groans ] Hmm.
00:20:17 [ Narrator ]Maybe it was best to move on tothe next item on George's list.
00:20:24 [ Chittering ] [ Groaning ] [ Chittering ] [ Narrator ]George knew birds flew by afterspending the winter down south.
00:20:39 Hundley loved birds.
00:20:41 Success was assured.
00:20:43 [ Geese Honking ] Ooh! Ah!
00:20:49 [ Barking ] [ Narrator ]Being a monkey was the best, but being a flying monkeywould be thebestbest.
00:20:59 [ Barking ] [ Groans ] [ George Chittering ] [ Giggling ] [ Grunts ] [ Groans ] Oh. [ Chuckles ] [ Groans ] [ Chuckles ] I never thought of you as a rough and tumble country dog, Hundley, but you're fitting right in, aren't you?
00:21:22 [ Chitters ] [ Groans ] Ah.
00:21:27 [ Narrator ]This wasn't going well, and George hadjust one item left on his list.
00:21:33 Surely this would makeHundley love spring.
00:21:37 [ Chittering ] [ Hooting ] [ Groaning ] [ Chittering ] [ Narrator ] George explainedhow the buds came in springand then became flowers.
00:21:51 [ Chittering ] And he was excited to introduceHundley to his friend Jumpy.
00:21:57 [ Chittering ] But Jumpy didn't knowwhat to think aboutthis long, low city dog.
00:22:04 [ Screeches ] [ Gasping ] [ Barking ] - [ Barking ] - [ Chittering ] [ Barking ] [ Chittering ] - [ Chittering ] - [ Barking ] [ Hundley Groaning ] Uh-oh.
00:22:30 Oh, boy.
00:22:31 [ Groaning ] [ Sighs ] [ Narrator ]So far, none of the thingson George's list...
00:22:43 had made Hundley love spring.
00:22:47 [ Phone Ringing ] Hello?
00:22:52 Uh, hold on.
00:22:54 Hundley, it's for you.
00:22:58 [ Doorman ] Hundley? [ Barking ] Hi.
00:23:01 [ Barking ] [ Grunting ] Uh-huh. Uh-huh. [ Barking Continues ] I-I called to say hi and-- [ Barking ] Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
00:23:12 He is sure happy to hear your voice.
00:23:14 Is the work done already? Um, no.
00:23:18 The job was bigger than he thought, and then it got even... bigger.
00:23:24 Okay. I'll let him know.
00:23:27 [ Exhales, Grunts ] Lost my wrench. Could you go downstairs and, uh, get me another?
00:23:35 Okay.
00:23:43 He is cleaning that building in ways I've never even heard of.
00:23:48 Uh, it's not time to go home yet, Hundley.
00:23:53 Sorry. [ Groans ] Hey, do you want to visit a real farm?
00:23:59 I'm going to the Renkins' anyway.
00:24:01 The whole town is expecting big things from the balloons, and I have to check with all the balloon entrants.
00:24:07 [ Chittering ] But first, a bath.
00:24:13 [ Groans ] These are the balloons that represent our town.
00:24:22 Oh, they're great!
00:24:24 My favorite is the brain.
00:24:25 The giant flying brain should lead the rally!
00:24:28 That's not a brain. It's a cauliflower.
00:24:32 Oh. Well, then...
00:24:35 the egg should lead, followed by the chicken, because chickens come from eggs.
00:24:41 You mean the chicken should come first, because eggs come from chickens.
00:24:46 Hmm. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
00:24:51 Chicken. Egg.
00:24:53 I suppose it would also depend on the local weather conditions, and of course changes in barometric pressure.
00:24:59 [ Narrator ] George wantedHundley to see the waythe farm changed in spring.

00:26:55 Hey. Huh?
00:26:57 This here balloon is a tribute to fish.
00:27:00 Naturally, I'll be piloting the real one.
00:27:04 Ah.
00:27:05 Ha. We wrote a song for Allie to sing with us...

00:27:49 I brought fish crackers and juice.
00:27:51 [ Together ] Fish crackers! Ooh, ooh, ooh.
00:27:58 [ Chittering ] Wow. It took all day to see everyone's balloon plans.
00:28:06 How long will it take us to decide an order?
00:28:09 Here's a proper balloon order.
00:28:11 Animals first, then fruits and vegetables, then the rest.
00:28:16 The order should be funny.
00:28:19 Funny is not proper.
00:28:20 You're the deciding vote. Funny or proper?
00:28:24 Uh. Well, uh-- - Uh-- - Funny. Say funny, funny.
00:28:30 Proper. Proper.
00:28:31 You know, we'll work it out.
00:28:33 Meanwhile, Allie, why don't you work on learning that song the Quints wrote for you?
00:28:40 Okay. Proper is fine as long as I don't have to sing about fish.
00:28:46 Oh, and this balloon goes first. [ Giggles ] Deal! Hey, guys, good job.
00:28:55 [ Whispering ] Should we show Hundley which is first?
00:28:59 [ Allie ] Nah. Make it a surprise.
00:29:06 [ Grunting ] I saw all that water before. Is your basement flooded?
00:29:13 No. We drained the water okay-- [ Grunts ] but I put some crates next to the hot furnace to dry.
00:29:21 Big mistake.
00:29:22 [ Grunting ] They were crates of un-popped popcorn.
00:29:26 Hey! Ah!
00:29:27 [ Sighs ] Some people need to learn the hazards of improper popcorn storage.
00:29:36 I know someone who could use all that popcorn.
00:29:40 Gee. You'd do that?
00:29:41 Well, just because we're in competition doesn't mean I'm not a good neighbor.
00:29:47 Thanks, Lydia.
00:29:49 You know, I think you're gonna win, unless the judges really like that fresh popcorn smell.
00:29:56 Well, who knows? They might.
00:30:02 Hey, where's Stew?
00:30:05 [ Rustling ] [ Coughing ] Why don't we get any normal calls?
00:30:15 [ Barking ] [ Doorman ] Uh-huh.
00:30:20 [ Barking ] Okay. Bye.
00:30:30 It's not time to go home yet.
00:30:34 [ Groans ] Soon.
00:30:36 H-He said he made a deal with local movie theaters to take all the popcorn away.
00:30:42 [ Groans ] I don't know what that means either.
00:30:52 [ Groans ] [ Narrator ]George had showedHundley everything, and he still hadn'tcaught spring fever.
00:31:07 But the balloon rallywas tomorrow.
00:31:11 George was sure Hundleywould have fun there.
00:31:14 What could possibly ruina balloon rally?
00:31:20 The balloons will all take off from here, then land in town.
00:31:27 Wow. Oh.
00:31:28 Allie, as official rally starter, you get to step on this pedal and start the rally.
00:31:34 It opens the rings, so all the balloons can rise at once.
00:31:39 - Like this? - No, not now.
00:31:42 [ Allie ] Whoops.
00:31:45 Sorry.
00:31:46 It's okay, Allie.
00:31:48 But if the balloons had been full of hot air, they'd have taken off, and we couldn't get 'em back.
00:31:54 [ Gasps ] Oh.
00:31:56 So, how do we get them back when they do fly? Yeah?
00:32:01 Pilots.
00:32:01 Balloons need pilots to fly them and bring 'em back to earth.
00:32:06 Ah. Oh, I get it.
00:32:08 Allie, did you want to show Hundley that surprise?
00:32:12 [ Panting ] Oh? Oh, yeah. Come on, guys.
00:32:21 In honor of Hundley, the lead balloon is--ta-da--take a look!
00:32:29 Huh?
00:32:31 [ Groans ] Ah.
00:32:32 [ Hooting ] Hey. Where's the wiener dog balloon?
00:32:36 [ Grunts ] I'm going to get it as soon as I'm done here.
00:32:40 [ Gasps ] Who is this handsome young man?
00:32:46 That's Hundley. He's our lobby dog from the city.
00:32:50 Ooh.
00:32:51 Why, you should be proud just to be a dachshund.
00:32:54 But to have a good job too, you are a diamond of a dog!
00:32:59 - [ Chittering ] - [ Pants, Growls ] Ms. Teckel, we inflate the balloons in an hour.
00:33:05 Time's running out. Okay.
00:33:08 Who wants to come to my farm to get the balloon?
00:33:12 - [ Chittering ] - [ Barking ] [ Chittering ] [ Chuckling ] Never been to a dachshund farm before?
00:33:34 [ Vocalizes ] [ Narrator ]Hundley figured it was abouttime a dachshund ran a farm.
00:33:39 [ Barks ] Yes, sir! I will, sir!
00:33:43 A dachshund farm is a normal farm...
00:33:46 where we also raise dogs.
00:33:48 Oh! Oh.
00:34:00 Come here, doggies.
00:34:02 [ All Barking ] [ Giggling, Chittering ] [ Narrator ]It was a likea swarm of Hundleys.
00:34:12 [ Chittering, Giggling ] [ Panting ] Oh.
00:34:18 [ Barks ] [ Narrator ]Tails don't lie.Hundley was very happy.
00:34:26 Hey, Dad. Meet George and Hundley.
00:34:31 Hello.
00:34:32 Hey, I thought you forgot about our doxie balloon.
00:34:36 Huh, huh?
00:34:38 [ Groans ] Doesn't look like much now, but wait till it's full of hot air.
00:34:44 [ Chitters ] - Are the dogs ready, Dad? - We're almost done rehearsing.
00:34:53 Come on, guys. You'll like this.
00:34:55 We're putting on a show in town once the balloons land.

00:37:20 [ Chittering ] [ Narrator ]George was sure this wasthe greatest thing...
00:37:27 Hundley ever saw.
00:37:29 [ Chittering ] Huh? [ Chitters ] He must've gone downto meet the dogs.
00:37:38 Looks great, Dad.
00:37:40 Oh, I have to go hook up the balloon now.
00:37:44 Okeydokey.
00:37:47 [ Whimpering ] You guys can't come with me.
00:37:51 Sorry.
00:37:52 [ Hundley Groaning, Growling ] [ Narrator ]There had to be a way outof this tangle somehow.
00:38:06 [ Barking ] [ Groaning ] [ Panting ] Hundley was relievedhe'd escaped fromthat floppy balloon.
00:38:25 [ Groans ] [ Grunts ] And then he wasn't.
00:38:30 This was very undignified.
00:38:36 [ Grunting ] [ Narrator ]Hundley had to get backto the dachshund farm.
00:38:41 But which way was it?
00:38:45 [ Groaning ] He wasn't going to getanywhere standing still.
00:38:51 So he took a guess.
00:38:55 [ Chittering ] [ Chittering ] Uh-uh.
00:39:12 Hmm.
00:39:13 [ Narrator ]There had to be some waya monkey could pick out...
00:39:16 one Hundleyin a sea of wiener dogs.
00:39:22 Aha!
00:39:26 [ Grunts ] Aha!
00:39:33 Aw.
00:39:35 [ Narrator ]Not one dog came overto clean up the mess.
00:39:41 Hundley wasn't here!
00:39:43 [ Dogs Barking ]Where would he go?
00:39:47 [ Barking Continues ] That lobby dog could neversurvive in the country.
00:39:59 [ Chittering ] [ Hooting ] [ Narrator ]To find his way,Hundley needed a good view.
00:40:12 Oh?
00:40:14 And the highest hillwould have the best view.
00:40:17 Mmm?
00:40:24 The air was different here.
00:40:25 It smelled like a clean lobby,except even cleaner.
00:40:35 Now here weresome very organized,hard-working animals.
00:40:41 If monkeys were like that, it would be easyto keep a neat lobby.
00:40:52 [ Chittering ] The time comes when a monkeyhas to ask himself, "If I were a dachshund, where would I go?" And then he'll gothe wrong way-- [ Chittering ]because a monkey'snot a dachshund.
00:41:16 [ Groaning ] Hundley's stomach told himit was hungry.
00:41:22 But there was no food out here.
00:41:26 [ Groans ] Or was there?
00:41:34 Maybe meetingthat wild nut-flingerwas a good thing.
00:41:42 [ Barking ] [ Chittering ] All George ever wanted to dowas help Hundley enjoy spring.
00:41:56 And now he was gone.
00:41:58 [ Sighs ] A city dog,alone in the country-- Poor Hundley must be terrified.
00:42:07 [ Barking, Panting ] Hundley had never been alonein the country before.
00:42:15 It was so quiet.
00:42:19 Huh?
00:42:21 The animals were so different.
00:42:25 Curious.
00:42:26 Dignified.
00:42:29 [ Geese Honking ] Orderly. [ Hundley Barks ] This was really nice.
00:42:43 Okay, everyone. Just another minute.
00:42:47 Wow.
00:42:48 I guess having stuff in proper order doesn't mean it cust think the balloons are so much fun...
00:42:57 that even a lot of rules couldn't make them boring.
00:43:00 You'll grow up and see that it's important to do things properly.
00:43:05 Oh, I hope not.
00:43:10 Wow. Awesome blowfish, Mr. Quint.
00:43:13 Why, thank you, Allie.
00:43:15 Hit it, Quints.

00:43:25 [ Together ] Okay.
00:43:29 Dad will bring George and Hundley later.
00:43:30 They were having fun, so I didn't want to drag them away.
00:43:34 Ah. Good to hear Hundley's happy.
00:43:37 He doesn't enjoy the great outdoors.
00:43:41 [ Barking, Panting ] [ Narrator ]Was it possibleHundley had spring fever?
00:43:53 [ Groans ]It was undignified.
00:43:57 So what?
00:43:58 [ Grunting, Groaning ] [ Barking, Panting ] The road he was on led Georgeright to the balloon rally.
00:44:21 [ Grunts, Chitters ] Ah.
00:44:34 Doo.
00:44:36 [ Grunts ] Aha!
00:44:43 That looked like a good perchfor spotting a short dog.
00:44:47 [ Chittering ] [ Sighs ] I can't get the balloons and people in the picture...
00:45:13 if they keep rising.
00:45:15 We're not rising.
00:45:17 Are we?
00:45:20 That's my balloon! [ All Shouting ] There's no way to get them back.
00:45:29 This isn't proper. How could they take off with nobody in them?
00:45:33 Somehow the mic stand was on the pedal.
00:45:36 But stepping on the pedal was my job.
00:45:39 [ Gasps ] Hey! Is that George?
00:45:41 - [ Gasps ] - [ Chittering ] Oh, no. George, what happened?
00:45:48 [ Chittering ] Oh, boy.
00:45:52 - All those balloons. - [ Together ] And no pilots!
00:45:58 Uh-oh.
00:46:01 [ Narrator ]Well, then he'd have topilot them himself.
00:46:05 [ Chittering ] What is he doing?
00:46:26 [ Chittering ] [ Narrator ]Now that they weretied together, George was the proudpilot of all the balloons.
00:46:44 Yeah! [ Gasps ] Except he didn't know anythingabout being a balloon pilot, and, of course,he had no ideawhere he was going.
00:46:59 We can't just stand here and let George get blown away.
00:47:03 But there's nothing anyone can do.
00:47:09 Hey, guys. I couldn't find George and Hundley.
00:47:12 Hundley? Oh, no! He must be up there with George!
00:47:16 Can I borrow your truck?
00:47:18 - Okay. Why? - I've got to do something, and I'm gonna follow those balloons until I figure out what!
00:47:24 Wait till I unhitch the... doggies.

00:47:50 [ Narrator ]Hundley reached a high spotlike he planned, but couldn't see the farm.
00:47:59 [ Groans ] He was hopelessly lost.
00:48:02 From this high up, he couldnever spot a little monkeyor tiny dachshunds.
00:48:12 [ Groans ] [ Barks ]On the other hand, a giant, flying dachshundwas very easy to spot.
00:48:21 [ Barking ] - Huh? - [ Barking Continues ] My, that lookeda lot like Hundley.
00:48:30 [ Chitters ]It was Hundley!
00:48:32 [ Chittering ] [ Groaning ] Come on, balloons. Where are you? [ Dogs Barking ] What is that? It sounds like the engine!
00:48:49 No, not from the engine. It's-- It's from the back.
00:48:54 [ Gasps ] [ Barking Continues ] Sorry, dogs. You're coming with me. [ Chuckles ] [ Groans ] [ Narrator ]George was so happyhe could rescue Hundley.
00:49:14 [ Chittering ] [ Groaning ] Hey, hey! Yay!
00:49:30 [ Groans ] It was a long way down.
00:49:33 But it was the best viewa short-legged wiener dogever had.
00:49:39 [ Barking ] [ Chittering ] They were heading home.
00:49:45 George thoughtsomeone there had to be ableto help get them down.
00:49:53 [ Gasps ] There they are!
00:49:55 Hang in there, guys. [ Phone Ringing ] Hello?[ Doorman ]Great news!
00:50:00 You can bring Hundley back to the city now.
00:50:03 Ha. Funny you should say that.
00:50:05 Uh, Hundley and George are headed to the city right now.
00:50:08 Just go to the roof and look towards the bridge.
00:50:12 I'm on the roof.
00:50:13 Towards the bridge?
00:50:16 Oh.
00:50:17 Wow.
00:50:18 Hundley and George are in those balloons?
00:50:21 They must be having fun.
00:50:23 Who's driving that many balloons?
00:50:26 Nobody.
00:50:29 - Nobody? - Nobody.
00:50:32 I'm on my way. Don't lose sight of those balloons!
00:50:35 Don't worry. Nothing could make me take my eyes off of them.
00:50:40 [ Gasps ] Ah! Hey!
00:50:42 Sorry. My canopy took off like a kite.
00:50:47 Hey!
00:50:48 This might make a perfect balloon trap!
00:50:51 Will you help me? Of course!
00:50:55 What's a balloon trap?
00:51:08 [ Chittering ] [ All ] Wow. [ Woman ] Is that a pig?
00:51:17 [ Man ] No, it's a flying pig.
00:51:20 [ Chittering ] George tried to ask peopleif they knew howto stop balloons.
00:51:23 [ George Chittering ] Wave to the flying monkey, kids!
00:51:27 They just smiled and waved.
00:51:29 Oh!
00:51:33 [ Barking ] [ Dogs Barking ] Shh, shh!
00:51:44 Get ready!
00:51:44 I don't think two of us are strong enough to stop all those balloons!
00:51:55 - How can I help? - [ Lydia ] Grab a rope.
00:51:57 We've got this high enough that the dog face will pass into the canopy.
00:52:05 [ Both Grunting ] Oh, gee, there's Hundley.
00:52:08 Duck down, boy! In the basket, George!
00:52:12 Ah!
00:52:13 [ Both Grunting ] [ Grunting ] - [ Grunts ] - We'll save you, Hundley boy!
00:52:27 We got it! [ Grunting ] Or it's got us!
00:52:34 [ Grunting ] Oh! [ Grunting ] Ah!
00:53:03 I think we stopped it. George?
00:53:08 Ah. [ Chittering ] [ Barking ] Oh, Hundley, you're safe. [ Barks ] [ Chuckles ] I'm so glad you're home. [ Barking ] [ Chitters ] Oh. [ Chuckles ] Oh, hey, buddy. Wow. What a day.
00:53:28 Uh-huh!
00:53:29 We couldn't have done it without you, Lydia!
00:53:30 [ Chitters ] Why, I always say, there's nothing a door person can't do...
00:53:38 with a plan and a lot of duct tape.
00:53:41 I always say that too.
00:53:47 Ooh. [ Chittering ] [ Doorman ] Wow! Whoo.
00:53:52 [ The Man ] Yup, it's beautiful.
00:53:55 [ Narrator ]Everyone came from the country, thrilled to gettheir balloons back.
00:53:59 But no one wasmore thrilled than Hundley.
00:54:02 He was back withthe doorman and on the job.
00:54:12 Mr. Mayor! Does one of those balloons belong to you?
00:54:16 No. I'm awarding the cleaniest, springiest building prize.
00:54:24 We won?
00:54:25 - Whoo! Oh, Hundley! - All right!
00:54:28 We won! We did it!
00:54:29 And I couldn't have done it without my neighbor and good friend, Lydia.
00:54:39 Ooh! [ Chittering ] Best balloon rally ever!
00:54:44 Let's do it the same way next year!

00:55:07 Oh.
