  • Hello kids! Gather 'round.

  • It's Fairy Tale Time

  • Today's story goes WAY back to Ancient China!

  • It's the story of Mulan!

  • Once upon a time, a baby girl named Hua Mulan was born.

  • She was a very brave little girl.

  • By the time she was 5 years old,

  • she had already tamed a tiger,

  • "Bad kitty!"

  • walked on a super-high tightrope,

  • and rescued a kitten from a tree!

  • She was so brave, she wasn't even scared of the dark!

  • Well... as long as her nightlight was on.

  • When Mulan was older, but not quite a grown-up,

  • she heard some very bad news...

  • There was going to be a battle.

  • And one man from every family had to go fight the enemy.

  • It was boys only back then,

  • No girls allowed.

  • In Mulan's family, it was just her,

  • her grandfather,

  • and her baby brother

  • Mulan looked at her grandpa...

  • He was old.

  • So old,

  • he just did crossword puzzles all day,

  • and couldn't hear anything, even if you shouted!

  • Hi grandpa!

  • Huh?

  • I said, HI!

  • Huh?

  • Grandpa's pretty old... he can't hear very well.

  • Huh?

  • Oh!

  • Bye!

  • Then, Mulan looked at her brother...

  • He was so little!

  • He couldn't even ride a horse into battle!

  • They probably didn't even make uniforms in his size!

  • Mulan knew what she had to do...

  • She cut her hair,

  • dressed up in her best fighting outfit,

  • and bravely marched out to join the army.

  • Along the way, she practiced being a boy.

  • [deep voice] Hello there, mister!

  • Hey dude!

  • Whassup bro?

  • When she reported for duty,

  • nobody seemed to know she was a girl!

  • Probably because she could do so many pushups,

  • and was wicked good at swordplay.

  • No one expected that from a young girl back then.

  • Mulan quickly became the best soldier around!

  • She was feeling pretty cool.

  • And then, the big horn sounded!

  • Oh, by the way, that was the sign that the enemy was coming and it was time to fight.

  • But don't be nervous kids, Mulan was ready!

  • She jumped on her horse,

  • and galloped towards the invaders yelling like this:

  • Yeeeeaaaah!!!

  • The other soldiers joined in and charged,

  • all yelling Mulan's fierce battle cry:

  • Yeeeaaah! Yeeeaaah!

  • woo

  • This scared the socks off the invaders.

  • Seriously, their socks FLEW right off!

  • I've never seen anything like it!

  • When she got to the general of the enemy army,

  • he was curled up into a ball, he was so scared!

  • He wasn't a very brave general.

  • Please don't hurt me, sir!

  • I don't wanna hurt you!

  • But you guys gotta go... You're being bullies!

  • Thank you for your mercy! You're a good man.

  • Thanks! But I'm an even awesomer girl!

  • The general was confused, but that's ok.

  • Mulan had won the battle!!

  • Later, there was a big celebration to honor the soldiers,

  • especially the brave young person

  • who had saved them all!

  • Mulan wore her prettiest dress,

  • and put flowers in her hair.

  • When she accepted her medal,

  • everyone was like

  • "She's a girl! Awesome!"

  • "Wow!" "Whoa!" "Cool!"

  • Then they cheered and sang "For She's a Jolly-good Fellow"

  • "For she's a jolly-good fellow,

  • for she's a jolly-good fellow,

  • for she's a jolly-good fellow!

  • Which nobody can deny!"

  • And she was!

  • The end!
