  • Huckle Cat: Why don't you sing along too?

(Lowly Worm forms 26 letters as Huckle Cat sings)

  • Huckle Cat: ♪ A-B-C-D-E-F-G, H-I-J-K-L-M-N-O-P, Q-R-S, T-U-V, W-X, Y and Z.

(Lowly Worm is getting tired as Huckle Cat finishes the song)

  • Huckle Cat: ♪ Now I've sung my ABC's. Next time won't you sing with me?

(Huckle Cat looks at Lowly Worm, then he laughs. Then we show Lowly Worm is sleeping in his bed. Then, we fade and pan the birds-eye view of Busytown. And then, we see a plane flying upside down, then Wrong-Way Roger turns it right-side up.)

  • Narrator: The end.

(The screen fades to black, ending the video with the credits and then the copyright.)
