  • Every night when I lie in bed.

  • BERT: Oh, no.

  • ERNIE: I see pictures dancing in my head.

  • BERT: Picture sleep.

  • ERNIE: Buddy Bert.

  • BERT: What?

  • ERNIE: Buckle up and we'll fly away.

  • BERT: Whoa!

  • ERNIE: We're adventuring.

  • Every time the bed starts napping, something special's

  • gonna happen.

  • BERT: This is kinda catchy.

  • ERNIE: My favorite kind of travelin'.

  • Yah!

  • BOTH: We're adventuring!

  • Come along with Bert and Ernie.

  • We're gonna take a little journey.

  • Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures!

  • ERNIE: Gee, Bert.

  • Isn't it exciting being detectives?

  • BERT: It would be more exciting if we had

  • [KNOCK ON DOOR]

  • BOTH: Ah-hah!

  • ERNIE: Come in.

  • VERONICA: Hello.

  • My name's Veronica Lambshank.

  • Where can I find the world famous Duck Detectives?

  • BOTH: Right here.

  • ERNIE: What can we do for you, Miss Lambshank?

  • VERONICA: I've come because I have a very strange friend.

  • BERT: Hm.

  • ERNIE: Tell us more.

  • VERONICA: His name is Malty, and he says

  • he's a Maltese duck.

  • BERT: Well, he looks like a duck.

  • VERONICA: Yes!

  • He waddles like a duck, too, but never, ever quacks.

  • I'm wondering what he really is, and want you to

  • investigate.

  • ERNIE: Duck Detectives on the case.

  • VERONICA: Meet me at the Sheep Meadow.

  • Malty hangs out by the pond, but I don't want him to know

  • I've hired detectives.

  • You'll need a disguise.

  • BERT: Just leave that to us.

  • ERNIE: Bye!

  • VERONICA: Malty, I'd like you to meet my

  • cousins from out of town.

  • ERNIE: Pleased to meet you, Malty.

  • MALTY: [FRENCH].

  • BERT: Uh, cousin Ernie, can I talk to you a minute?

  • BERT: Sure, cousin Bert.

  • Uh, excuse us, Malty.

  • BERT: That Malty does seem like an odd duck.

  • He didn't quack at all.

  • [SQUEAK]

  • ERNIE: Oh, what's that, rubber ducky?

  • [SQUEAK]

  • ERNIE: Great idea.

  • Rubber ducky says that if he's a real duck, he'll

  • quack when he swims.

  • BERT: But how can we get Malty to swim?

  • VERONICA: I know.

  • Jump in the pond, Bert.

  • BERT: Oh, no, no, no, no.

  • I don't like cold water!

  • Ah!

  • ERNIE AND VERONICA: Malty!

  • Help cousin Bert!

  • ERNIE: Hm.

  • Still not one quack.

  • VERONICA: Here you are, Cousin Bert.

  • You seem to have lost your ears.

  • Sheep cousins.

  • Strange.

  • Now if you'll excuse me, I must fly.

  • Ciao bella!

  • VERONICA: He mysteriously leaves

  • like that every afternoon.

  • ERNIE: We'll get to the bottom of this.

  • There he is.

  • BERT: Wait, Ernie.

  • I think someone's following us.

  • I hear footsteps.

  • ERNIE: Bert, those are our footsteps.

  • We're the ones following--

  • Malty?

  • Oh no, we lost him.

  • Now what'll we do?

  • [SQUEAK]

  • ERNIE: Rubber ducky says to keep our ears open for clues.

  • [SINGING]

  • BERT: That sounds like him!

  • And it's coming from over there.

  • WOMAN: Get out of my house!

  • BERT: Guess that wasn't Malty.

  • Shh.

  • Hear that, Ernie?

  • Walk slower.

  • Let's walk faster.

  • ERNIE: Let's try a little dance.

  • Someone is definitely following us.

  • All right, come on out!

  • BERT: Miss Lambshank?

  • VERONICA: I was too curious to stay and wait at home.

  • [WHISTLING]

  • BERT: What was that?

  • VERONICA: Sounds like whistling

  • coming from that door.

  • ERNIE: Well, ducks don't whistle, so we

  • know that can't be--

  • ALL: Malty!

  • MALTY: Miss Lambshank?

  • VERONICA: What are you doing there?

  • MALTY: I have a secret to confess.

  • VERONICA: What is it?

  • MALTY: I'm not a Maltese duck at all.

  • I'm a black bellied whistling duck.

  • ALL: A black bellied whistling duck?

  • VERONICA: Why didn't you tell me before?

  • MALTY: I was afraid you'd laugh at me for being a duck

  • who can't quack.

  • VERONICA: Laugh at you?

  • Never.

  • I'll always be your friend, even if you can't quack.

  • Besides, I love whsitling.

  • Only, I never learned how.

  • MALTY: It's simple.

  • You just put your beak together and blow.

  • [SPITTING]

  • MALTY: Try this.

  • BERT: Well Malty, you won't have to hide

  • your whistling anymore.

  • ERNIE: Why don't we all celebrate with some whistling?

  • [WHISTLING]

  • ERNIE: Good night, Bert.

  • BERT: Good night, Ernie.

  • Uh-oh.

ERNIE: [SINGING]
