TRANSCRIPT[]

(After the title card, the screen fades from black to reveal a ship. Then, we cut to the Warners and Background Singers dancing right as the camera follows them. Only Yakko sings on-screen.)

Yakko: ♪There once was a man. His name was Magellan.♪

(The camera stops moving as the crew stops dancing. Then we see Magellan surrounded by women attracted to him.)

♪A Portuguese skipper, the girls found him cute.♪

(We cut to the ocean, with the ships setting sail to the camera. Then we cut to the Warners dancing on deck while Background Singer #1 sings, and while a dream cloud forms over Magellan, who is in control of the helm.)

Background Singer #1: ♪He sailed with five ships, to find the East Indies.♪

(The camera zooms in on Magellan's dream cloud. Inside it, we see the ship zooming out of the shot, then coming back with giant sacks loaded with sugars and spices. The camera zooms away after the daydream ends.)

Background Singer #1 (Off-screen): ♪Then come back to Spain, with a bounty of loot.♪

(The dream cloud disappears as the Warners pop out of Magellan's helmet and sing along with their human friends as Wakko pulls out a long lounge chair, while Yakko and Dot throw Magellan onto it. Behind the Warners, the Background Singers are shown swabbing the poop deck with mops and buckets as they sing.)

Warners and Background Singers: ♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, oh happy Magellan!♪

(In the next shot, Yakko puts a pair of sunglasses on Magellan, while Dot hands him a glass of pink lemonade, and Wakko hands him a suntanning mirror.)

♪Starting your journey with hardly a care.♪

(Magellan sets all that stuff aside and pulls out a map of Wisconsin)

♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, strong, brave Magellan! (Warners lower the map down and sing to Magellan) You'll find the East Indies, you just don't know where.♪

(The screen transitions to the five pirate ships sailing left, then to the Warners in a map background. Yakko and Dot dance while Wakko draws on it. Then we cut back to the ship as the Background Singers continue mopping.)

Yakko: ♪They crossed the Atlantic and spotted a country, Magellan said...♪

Magellan: It's the East Indies at last!

(The screen focuses on an island, with an arrow sign reading "COMING SOON" pointing to the "EVITA" sign)

Background Singer #1 (Off-screen): ♪But then someone shouted...♪

(We cut to the Warners and humans on deck, with Wakko pointing.)

Wakko: Hey, that’s Argentina.

(In a fit of rage, Magellan pulls out an ax and starts chopping down the ship mast, causing some of the sails to fall off.)

Yakko: ♪Magellan got cranky and chopped down the mast.♪

(The next shot reveals the Warners dancing around Magellan as the Background Singers sing)

Warners and Background Singers: ♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, settle down, Magellan!♪

(Yakko throws the ax away and Wakko and Dot push him right until he's out of the shot)

♪Put down that axe, there's no time to despair.♪

(Once at the map, Magellan begins to draw a circle and a half-circle on it with a compassing drawing tool.)

♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, keep trying, Magellan! You'll find the East Indies, you just don't know where.♪

(The next shot reveals a stormy night sky. Lightning crackles and we see Magellan seasick. Then, the Warners are shown dressed in raincoats, while the Background Singers have their microphone umbrellas out as a giant wave covers the screen.)

Yakko: ♪A great storm arose in the mighty Pacific, (Two ships get sucked in a hurricane) the five little ships, were diminished to three.♪

(Screen wipes to the Warners and Magellan looking at something from the ship. Magellan's eyes spring open and starts dancing around like a ballerina until Dot tugs his pants.)

♪At last land was sighted Magellan was happy. But then someone shouted...♪

Dot: Hey, (Pulls out the map pointing to Chile) that's Chile!

(Magellan rips up the map in frustration and the Background Singers start dancing with the Warners as they sing. Then the Warners stretch Magellan's cheeks to form a smile.)

Warners and Background Singers: ♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, cheer up, Magellan!♪

(Magellan starts tearing his beard as Yakko rolls out a long map)

♪Check out your map and don't tear out your hair.♪

(The Warners run around Magellan and tie him up with the map, then push him around until he crashes into the screen.)

♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, keep trying, Magellan! You'll find the East Indies, you just don't know where.♪

(Once Magellan crashes into the camera, the screen fades to the map background, and pans right to the Warners sailing their own ship as bells ring.)

Yakko: ♪It took them five months, but they crossed the Pacific.♪

(We cut to the open sea as the camera slowly pans right until it stops at the island. The Warners, Background Singer #1, and Magellan run up to the edge of the ship.)

Background Singer #1 (Off-screen): ♪They spotted a land that was dotted with palms.♪

Yakko (Off-screen): ♪Magellan proclaimed...♪

Magellan: Yes! (Points) That's the East Indies!

Yakko (On-screen) and Background Singer #1 (Off-screen): ♪But then someone shouted...♪

(Yakko and Dot run as the camera zooms in on the island with the trees spelling "GUAM")

Wakko: Hey, I think that's Guam!

(Magellan facepalms as the camera zooms out, revealing the Warners dancing around Magellan, with the Background Singers singing behind him.)

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: ♪Ay-yi-yi-yi!♪

Background Singer #1 (Off-screen) and other Background Singers (On-screen) (In harmony with the Warners): ♪Ay-yi-yi...♪

Warners and Background Singers: ♪Oops, Magellan! Your fun little journey's become a nightmare.♪

(Magellan walks up to a mast to slam his head on. Background Singer #1 sings beside Magellan as he slams his head. Yakko and Wakko, in the next shot, pull him away as Dot pulls a map up from under the poop deck.)

(Then Yakko hands Magellan a paper ship and Wakko puts a blindfold on him. The Warner Brothers spin him around and Magellan blindly sticks the ship onto the map as he crashes into it.)

♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, keep trying, Magellan! You'll find the East Indies, you just don't know where.♪

(The camera slowly zooms away from the map and Yakko and Background Singer #1 pop up from under the screen as the paper ship starts sailing left. Yakko and Background Singer continue singing as the screen flips a page to the next scene, revealing the Warners, the Background Singers, and Magellan setting foot on the beach.)

Yakko and Background Singer #1: ♪They sailed due west to the Philippine Islands. Magellan was pleased as the natives drew near.♪

(Three natives with spears prepare to attack)

Yakko (Off-screen): ♪But then someone shouted...♪

(The Warners and Background Singers turn around and run away)

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singers (except #1): I think they’re attacking!

(The first Background Singer, however, has his fists up, and is ready to fight the natives. A background singer pulls him away, though.)

Yakko (Off-screen): ♪Magellan said...♪

Magellan: What?

Yakko (On-screen): ♪And got hit by a spear!♪

(Music stops as the screen vibrates on the last note. Once Magellan's helmet bounces to the crew from the left of the screen, Background Singer #1 speaks up.)

Background Singer #1: Big deal! I could’ve dealt with those natives in 5 seconds if you didn’t stop me.

Yakko: Yeah, but then you would’ve messed up the timeline.

Background Singer #1: (Opens his eyes in realization) Point taken.

(Music continues as the background fades, with Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and the Background Singers back on the ship.)

Warners and Background Singers: ♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, farewell, Magellan! You almost made it, it's really not fair!♪

(Magellan's ghost suddenly flies up to the singing crew)

♪Whoopie ti-yi-yo, oh, ghost of Magellan, (Everyone points right) the East Indies islands were right over there.♪♪

(The camera pans over to the East Indies islands. One sign reads "EACH INDIES", with the other sign reading "YOUR PLACE FOR SPICE". As soon as Ghost Magellan sees this, he flies off. Meanwhile, the crew runs to the other side of the ship and waves as the iris closes around Ghost Magellan.)
