Chapter 1:
"The Meeting"

Narrator: Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there lived a forest of friends. First, there was Oakie, who was the biggest baddest tree in Acorn Alley.

Oakie: All right, you little twigs. Get your roots over here. We've got business to discuss.

Narrator: Then there was Pine. Pine dreamed of speed. He dreamed of racing. He dreamed of being the greatest, fastest, most interrogating Pine Derby car ever built.

Pine: Vroom. Vroom. Vroom. Watch out Nascar. I'm gonna leave you in my Pine Tar.

Narrator: Gummy knew there had to be something else he could make besides gum balls.

Gummy: I'm so tired of these boring gumballs. I need something sweeter or something fruitier. Something… Oooh! A worm. (Gummy picks up the worm)
