The Return of Batduck/Transcript

Prologue

(The prologue begins with a view of a camera. As the announcer announces The Plucky Duck Show, the camera turns until it reaches the viewfinder, where the silhouette of Plucky in a tuxedo and an Elvis-style hairdo can be seen)

Announcer: "And now, starring in his very own television show, Plucky Duck!"

(The screen flashes, transitioning the silhouette of Plucky to his actual self)

Plucky: "Hit it!"

(The camera zooms out, revealing the stage, with several giant golden statues of Plucky in his tuxedo and hairdo across the stair rails, and several Duck Showgirls on the stairs. The audience applauds, and the camera cuts back to Plucky, focusing on him as he poses, until he eventually falls down the stairs)

Plucky: "Whoa!"

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-out view of the stage as Plucky falls down the stairs, grunting. The Duck Showgirls are not on the stairs. The camera cuts to a zoomed-in view of Plucky when he reaches the bottom. He picks himself up and turns his face away from the camera while adjusting his hairdo)

Plucky: "I meant to do that."

(Plucky turns around. The camera then cuts to a zoomed-out view of him between two Duck Showgirls)

Plucky (singing): "Hey, there are ducks, whose beaks need some kissing," (As the Duck Showgirl on the right inadvertently hits him) "Oof!" (singing) "And kissing's what I'm gonna do," (As the Duck Showgirl on the left inadvertently hits him) "Ouch!, watch it!" (Singing) "Man, those ducks aren't hip to what they're missing," (As the two Duck Showgirls inadvertently crush him in between them) "Eef! Oof!"

(The camera cuts to a side view of Plucky and the Duck Showgirl on the right)

Plucky (singing): "I've got a mess of living to do!" (As the Duck Showgirl inadvertently hits him with her hairdo) "Oof! Cut, stop, cease, take ten, everybody!" (As he points to the Duck Showgirl) "You take ten years!"

(The camera cuts to a close-up of Plucky as he adjusts his bow tie)

Plucky: "Showgirls. Hmm."

(The camera cuts back to the previous view as Plucky walks away and the Duck Showgirl unzips herself, revealing her to be a costumed Hamton)

Hamton: "Sorry, Plucky."

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-out view as Plucky angrily walks away, then moves to the left side of the screen, where Buster and Babs are. Babs is sitting in a chair with Plucky's name on it, applying her make-up)

Buster: "I'm getting that sick feeling."

Babs: "Oh, and I'm not?"

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-in view of Buster and Babs as the latter turns around and points at Plucky)

Babs: "It's all because of him."

Plucky (as he walks in): "Step aside, rabbits!" (As Buster and Babs walk away and he combs his hairdo) "Hmmph! Just a tad jealous, are we?"

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-out view of Buster, Babs, and Plucky together. Buster is sitting atop two trunks and Babs is sitting on a chair)

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-in view of Babs)

Babs: "Looks like your show's gonna be great, Plucky."

(The camera cuts to a view of Plucky as he continues combing his hair)

Plucky: "I'm glad Warner Bros. finally realized my potential. This show's gonna be a humongous blockbuster, Buster."

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-out view of Buster, Babs, and Plucky together)

Buster: "Oh, yeah. This is a much better break than that little old Batman part."

Babs: "Oh, Batman, Schmatman. Plucky didn't want that bitsy part anyway."

Plucky: "What part?" (As he walks up to Buster, grabs him and shakes him) "What part are you talking about?"

Buster (as he pulls out a newspaper): "Ah, Tim Burton's directing another Batman movie."

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-in view. On the front of the newspaper are the words, Varietoon. KEATON BAGS BATMAN 37. BURTON DIRECTS. Babs walks in)

Babs: "Michael Keaton's perfect for it."

Buster (as Plucky snatches the newspaper and looks at it): "Plucky belongs on television anyway, Babsy, not feature films."

(The camera zooms out as Buster and Babs turn around and walk away)

Babs: "It's really mature of him to realize it."

(The camera cuts to an opposing view as Plucky looks in disdain and tosses the newspaper aside, beginning to throw a tantrum)

Plucky: "No! I wanna be in a movie!"

(The camera cuts to an opposing view)

Plucky: "I wanna be Batman! I wanna, I wanna!"

(Plucky regresses into a diaper-wearing toddler as he continues crying. The camera zooms out as he bounces across the stage)

Plucky: "Wanna wanna wanna wanna wanna!"

(The camera cuts to a view of Buster and Babs)

Buster: "But what about your show?"

(The camera cuts to a view of Plucky, who finishes his tantrum by reverting back to his normal age)

Plucky: "Who cares about a lousy T.V. show? I'm feature material! I'm Batman!"

(The camera cuts to a zoomed-out view as Plucky jumps onto the right stair rail and pounds one of the statues)

Plucky: "That's my part! My part, I tell you!"

(The camera cuts to a view of Hamton looking at Plucky from inside the taxi)

Plucky: "I am Batman! Now, keep practicing your line."

Hamton (as he turns around): "Love you, babe, let's have lunch."

Plucky: "No, no. Not 'have' lunch, 'do' lunch!"

(The camera cuts to an opposing view)

Hamton: "But, Plucky," (As he pulls down a chart and points at it) "'Do lunch' is bad grammar; improper use of a transitive verb."

(The camera cuts to a view of the Taxi's backside as it drives away. Plucky rips up the chart and tosses it out the window)

Plucky: "It's slang, jargon, colloquial chatter! Keep practicing, keep practicing."

(The camera cuts to a view outside the Warner Bros. Studio as the taxi stops in front of it. It then cuts to a view of Plucky looking at the Taxi Driver)

Plucky: "Can you pick us up later?"

Plucky (as he runs by): "Hammy, wait up!"

(Ralph pulls out a rope and twirls it around like a lasso. The camera cuts to a side view as Plucky tries to run after Hamton, only to be caught in Ralph's rope)

(The camera cuts back to the previous view as Ralph pulls Plucky back and grabs him)
