THAT’S NOT BORING, IS IT?>>(laughing) NO, IT’S SILLY. THEY’RE ALL SILLY.>>BUT WHO WANTS TO LOOK AT PICTURES OF THE ROYAL FAMILY BEING SILLY?>>>EVERYBODY!>>ADMIRAL CORNELIUS HAS HIS MAJESTY’S BATTLESHIPS ON FULL ALERT… STANDING BY FOR IMMINENT ATTACK, THE DESTROYERS ARRANGED IN A CIRCLE, CIRCUMNAVIGATING, SO TO SPEAK, PREPARED TO RESPOND IMMEDIATELY TO ENEMY ACTION FROM ANY DIRECTION.

(humming)>>(scream)>>POMPADOUR, WHAT’S WRONG?>>THIS!>>”CELESTEVILLE ENQUIRER: THE INSIDE STORY ON PALACE LIFE”? (chuckling) ISN’T THAT CUTE? BUT ISN’T THAT… BUT HOW… WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY? WHY, WHY?>>>YOUR MAJESTY!>>GOOD NIGHT, DEAR.>>I’VE GOT TO SORT THIS PROBLEM OUT. CORNELIUS AND POMPADOUR ARE VERY UPSET ABOUT THOSE PICTURES THAT FLORA IS PLANNING TO PRINT IN HER NEWSPAPER. I GUESS I’LL SLEEP ON IT. I LOVE THOSE ROYAL BOXER SHORTS YOU MADE FOR ME, BUT I DON’T WANT THE ENTIRE KINGDOM TO SEE THEM.>>OH, BABAR, I’LL BET YOU LOOK CUTE.>>I COULD SIMPLY FORBID FLORA TO PUBLISH THE PICTURES, BUT THIS WHOLE NEWSPAPER BUSINESS WAS MY IDEA, AFTER ALL, AND I DID TELL FLORA THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH.>>FLORA’S A GOOD GIRL, AND SHE CARES VERY MUCH ABOUT EVERYONE IN THE PALACE. SHE’S VERY SENSIBLE, BABAR. MAYBE YOU SHOULD TRUST HER JUDGEMENT.>>YOU KNOW, CELESTE, I THINK I’M JUST GOING TO LET FLORA MAKE HER OWN DECISION ABOUT THIS. SHE’LL DO THE RIGHT THING. I’LL SPEAK TO HER IN THE MORNING. THANK YOU, DEAR.>>YOU’RE WELCOME. GOODNIGHT.>>FLORA, YOU’RE A GOOD GIRL.>>THANK YOU, FATHER.>>YOU’RE WELCOME. YOU WOULDN’T EVER KNOWINGLY HURT OR EMBARRASS ANYONE, BECAUSE YOU’RE A VERY LOVING AND AFFECTIONATE GIRL.>>THANK YOU, FATHER.>>YOU’RE WELCOME. NOW, ABOUT THESE PHOTOGRAPHS: BY PUBLISHING YOUR, UH, LITTLE NEWSPAPER, THERE IS MUCH OF VALUE THAT YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF A FREE PRESS TO A FREE SOCIETY. AND YOU WILL LEARN, BECAUSE YOU ARE A BRIGHT AND TALENTED GIRL.>>THANK YOU, FATHER.>>YOU’RE WELCOME. NOW, ABOUT THESE PHOTOGRAPHS: AS EDITOR, YOU WILL HAVE SOME VERY DIFFICULT DECISIONS TO MAKE. YOU MUST DECIDE WHAT CONSTITUTES A FAIR AND ACCURATE REPRESENTATION OF THE TRUTH.>>OH, I KNOW.>>YOU KNOW? OH, THAT’S GOOD, FLORA. THAT’S VERY GOOD. BECAUSE ABOUT THESE… WELL, I KNOW I CAN TRUST YOU TO MAKE THE PROPER DECISION, BECAUSE, WELL, I TRUST YOU.>>THANK YOU, FATHER.>>YOU’RE WELCOME. BECAUSE ABOUT… WELL, I KNOW YOU’LL DO THE RIGHT THING.>>OH, I WILL. I PROMISE.>>THANK YOU, FLORA.>>YOU’RE WELCOME, FATHER.>>SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO, FLORA?>>THE RIGHT THING.>>BABAR WOULD NEVER ALLOW FLORA TO PUBLISH THOSE PICTURES. IT WOULD BE DEADLY FOR THE KING’S PUBLIC IMAGE. I MEAN… I WAS IN THE BATHTUB, POMPADOUR. WITH MY TOY BOATS. AND MY… MY DUCKIE.>>MY SENTIMENTS EXACTLY, CORNELIUS. IT WOULD BE VERY DANGEROUS TO UNDERMINE THE PEOPLE’S CONFIDENCE IN THEIR KING. BUT AT LEAST YOU WEREN’T MADE TO LOOK AS SILLY AS I WAS. THE PEOPLE WILL THINK I HAVE NO… NO TABLE MANNERS!>>NO, NO, POMPADOUR. YOU CAN’T POSSIBLY THINK YOU LOOKED SILLIER THAN I DID.>>OH, YES, YES. I LOOKED MUCH SILLIER.>>NO, NO, I LOOKED MUCH SILLIER! MUCH SILLIER THAN YOU EVER DID.>>I WAS SILLIER THAN YOU. YES, I DID.>>NO, NO, I LOOKED MUCH SILLIER THAN YOU EVER DID…>>CORNELIUS, POMPADOUR, YOUR WORRIES ARE OVER.>>OH, THANK HEAVENS!>>YOU FORBADE FLORA TO PUBLISH THE PICTURES?>>NO, I WOULD NEVER DO THAT. I’VE DECIDED TO LET FLORA MAKE HER OWN DECISIONS.>>SHE’LL PUBLISH THE PICTURES!>>SHE’LL DO AN EXPOSE!>>NO, NO, NO. SHE WOULD NEVER DO AN EXPOSE.>>OH, YES SHE WOULD, SIRE. SHE’LL DO AN EXPOSE ON THE SECRET LIFE INSIDE THE PALACE.>>NO, NO, NO.>>OH, YES, YES.>>NO, NO, NO. SHE WOULD NEVER DO AN EXPOSE. OBVIOUSLY, YOU’RE UNDERESTIMATING MY INFLUENCE AS A FATHER. “EXPOSE: THE SECRET LIFE INSIDE THE PALACE. SEE IT ALL IN THE CELESTEVILLE ENQUIRER TOMORROW MORNING.”>>ON SECOND THOUGHT, YOU DO LOOK SILLIER, CORNELIUS. MUCH SILLIER.>>OH, WE’RE RUINED! IT COULDN’T BE WORSE, POMPADOUR. IT COULDN’T BE WORSE!>>OH, YES IT COULD, CORNELIUS.>>>(excited chatter) ANY COMMENTS? ARE WE REALLY GOING TO SEE THIS? WHAT’S GOING ON IN THERE? A RUBBER DUCKIE?>>I SEE THAT YOU’VE DECIDED TO PUBLISH THESE PICTURES AFTER ALL.>>YES, FATHER. I DECIDED IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. YOU DID SAY THE PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW THE TRUTH.>>YES, FLORA, BUT–>>AND THESE PICTURES ARE THE TRUTH. THESE THINGS REALLY HAPPENED.>>YES, BUT–>>YOU SAID IT WAS UP TO ME TO MAKE THE DECISION.>>BUT–>>IF YOU WANT TO PUNISH ME, YOU CAN, BUT I’VE ALREADY MADE MY DECISION.>>FLORA’S REALLY GONNA GET IT THIS TIME.>>YEAH, MAYBE I CAN FINALLY HAVE HER ROOM.>>I’M NOT GOING TO PUNISH YOU, FLORA. IT’S STILL YOUR DECISION. I JUST WANT YOU TO THINK ABOUT ONE THING: DO YOUR PICTURES SHOW THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT LIFE IN THE PALACE, OR HAVE YOU LEFT SOMETHING OUT?>>WHAT DOES HE MEAN? WE HAVEN’T LEFT ANYTHING OUT. WHAT MORE COULD THERE BE?>>(Pompadour) WE HAVE TO GET THE FLOOR PLANS DONE…>>(Cornelius) IF WE PUT IN A WOODEN FLOOR UP TO HERE…>>(Flora) IT’S AWFULLY LATE FOR PEOPLE TO BE UP.>>THEN WE MUST GET BRICKS.>>OH, A WINDOW, DEFINITELY. AND THE DOOR.>>BUT WE HAVEN’T DECIDED ON THE COLOUR.>>THEN, OF COURSE, THE WALL JOISTS WOULD BE ABLE TO FIT IN HERE.>>JUST ANOTHER HOUR OR SO, TROUBADOUR, AND WE CAN ALL GET SOME SLEEP.>>IF WE GET THESE PLANS FINISHED TONIGHT, THEN WE CAN START BUILDING THE SHELTER FOR THE HOMELESS TOMORROW MORNING.>>AND NOT A MOMENT TOO SOON FOR THOSE POOR JUNGLE ELEPHANTS, RIGHT, TROUBADOUR? TROUBADOUR?>>ON THE OCCASION OF MY ANNIVERSARY AS KING, I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU, THE CITIZENS OF CELESTEVILLE. IT HAS BEEN ONLY THROUGH YOUR HARD WORK AND SACRIFICE THAT WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BUILD THIS GREAT CITY… NOT ONLY THE PALACE, BUT THE SCHOOL AND HOSPITAL, THE LIBRARY AND THE MUSEUM. WORDS ARE NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE AND MY LOVE. WORDS COULD NEVER BE ENOUGH.>>(rooster crowing)>>COME AND GET IT! READ ALL ABOUT IT! LIFE INSIDE THE PALACE!>>MY, OH MY.>>OH, GOODNESS. LOOK AT THAT!>>THE CELESTEVILLE ENQUIRER! GET IT HERE!>>WHAT’S IT SAY?>>TROUBADOUR, IS IT BY ANY CHANCE GOOD NEWS?>>I MIGHT AS WELL BE THE FIRST TO EXAMINE IT. I’M SURE I’M THE ONE WHO LOOKS THE SILLIEST. (gasp) OH, MY. MY, MY, MY.>>IS IT THAT BAD, CORNELIUS?>>MY, MY, MY GOODNESS. THAT’S A LOVELY SHOT OF ME. WHY, I LOOK POSITIVELY DIGNIFIED. YOU LOOK DIGNIFIED TOO, POMPADOUR. BUT NOT QUITE AS DIGNIFIED. AND KING BABAR AND QUEEN CELESTE…>>OH, BABAR, ISN’T IT LOVELY?>>IT CERTAINLY IS. THE CHILDREN DID A WONDERFUL JOB.>>SEE, POMPADOUR? THE SILLY PICTURES ARE STILL THERE, BUT THEY’RE MORE THAN BALANCED OUT BY THESE DIGNIFIED PICTURES.>>YES. IN FACT, I THINK THIS GIVES EVERYONE A LOOK AT BOTH SIDES OF PALACE LIFE.>>EXACTLY: AT THE SILLY AND THE DIGNIFIED.>>YES, BUT I DO THINK I LOOK A LITTLE MORE DIGNIFIED THAN YOU.>>I WOULDN’T SAY THAT.>>TROUBADOUR, I THOUGHT YOU MEANT IT WAS BAD NEWS. YOU WERE JUST TEASING, WEREN’T YOU?>>(Flora) HOW DO YOU LIKE IT?>>>(laughing)>>WE’RE SO PROUD OF ALL OF YOU.>>THANK YOU, FLORA. IT COULDN’T BE BETTER.>>WELL, I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT THAT THERE’S TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY.>>AND THAT THERE’S MORE TO LIFE IN THE PALACE THAN JUST BEING SILLY.>>AND THAT PRINTER’S INK IS VERY HARD TO WASH OUT.>>>(laughing)>>LESSONS WELL LEARNED, I DARE SAY. TROUBADOUR, GIVE THE CHILDREN A HUG.>>WHERE ARE YOU GOING?>>WE’VE GOT WORK TO DO.>>OUR NEXT STORY.>>BYE!>>BABAR, WHAT DO THEY MEAN, THEIR NEXT STORY? WHAT STORY DO THEY MEAN?>>I HAVE NO IDEA.>>THEY’RE NOT GOING TO DO ANOTHER EXPOSE?>>NO, I’M SURE THEY WOULDN’T–>>IT’S GOING TO BE A SCOOP. A BIG, BIG SCOOP.>>SCOOP?>>WHAT’S SHE TALKING ABOUT, SIRE? WHAT DOES SHE MEAN, A SCOOP? I DON’T KNOW.>>SHE SAID A BIG SCOOP. A BIG, BIG SCOOP.>>WE HAVE REPUTATIONS TO THINK ABOUT, SIRE!>>MAYBE SHE’S JUST KIDDING. MAYBE IT’S JUST A LITTLE JOKE.>>(Cornelius) I DON’T THINK IT’S FUNNY.>>(Pompadour) NOT FUNNY AT ALL. CLOSED CAPTIONING PROVIDED BY YTV CANADA, INC.
