Hi. I'm Pablo.

My name's Tyrone.

I'm Uniqua.

I'm Tasha.

My name's Austin.

ALL: And we're…

🎵 Your backyard friends, the Backyardigans. Together in the backyard again. 🎵

🎵 In the place where we belong. 🎵

🎵 Or we'll probably sing a song. 🎵

🎵 And maybe we'll dance along. 🎵

ALL:

🎵 We've got the whole wide world in our yard to explore, we always find things we've never seen before. That's why everyday we're back for more with your friends, the Backyardigans! 🎵

ALL:

"Viking Voyage"

Yaaa! Yaaa! Yaaa! Yaaa! Yaaa!

ALL: Yaaa!

Hail to you! It is me, Tyrone!

And me, Uniqua! Hail!

And me, Pablo! Hail to you!

And we are Vikings! Yaaa!

BOTH: Yaaa!

Vikings wear viking helmets.

And sail the northern seas the Viking ships.

And Vikings are tough.

If you wanna be a Viking, say "Yaaa!"

ALL: Yaaa!

🎵 If you wanna be a Viking, say Yaaa! Say yaaa! 🎵

🎵 If you wanna be a Viking, say Yaaa! Say yaaa! 🎵

🎵 If you wanna be a Viking, if that's to your liking, Say yaaa! 🎵

ALL: 🎵 Say yaaa! 🎵

🎵 We're just in the mood to go for a float 🎵

🎵 Across the ocean wide in our Viking boat 🎵

🎵 With horns on my helmet and a furry old coat, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

ALL: 🎵 If you wanna be a Viking, if that's to your liking, if you wanna be a Viking, say yeah, if it's to your liking, if you wanna be a Viking, if that's to your liking, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

(LAUGHING)

Oh, those silly Vikings. They think they're so tough. But you know who's even tougher than a Viking? A mermaid! Just wait and see.

Where should we sail on Viking ship?

Maybe to Iceland with the Vikings discovered ice.

Or to Vineland with the Vikings discovered vines.

Or to Greenland with the Vikings discovered green stuff.

Or maybe we should sail until we discover a new land that nobody has ever discovered before.

An undiscovered land.

That no one has ever discovered before!

And when we get there, we'll give it a new name, and leave our Viking marks.

ALL: Yaaa!

It's going to be a long, hard voyage. But we can do it!

Because we're Vikings!

And Vikings are tough!

Let's go!

To our Viking ship!

With the wind and our sails!

And the northern seas to explore!

(SEAGULLS CALL)

(GIGGLING)

Man your sailing posts, Vikings!

I'll read the map so we know where we're going.

I'll be the look out to we see where we're going.

And I'll steer so we going we're going!

ALL: Yaaa!

🎵 I'm Viking Uniqua, my job is to steer. We might hit a storm, but we never fear. 'Cause Vikings are tough, be it windy or clear, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

🎵 I'm Viking Tyrone, and I read the map! We'll get to our brand new land in a snap! We're so very tough, we never need a nap, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

🎵 I'm Viking Pablo, and I look around, to see every sight to hear every sound! I'll be ready when our new land is found, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

ALL: 🎵 If you wanna be a Viking, if that's to your liking, if you wanna be a Viking, go sailing, not hiking! If you wanna be a Viking if that's to your liking, say yaaa! Everybody say yaaa! 🎵

So how far do we have to sail to find undiscovered land?

We have to go pass the doldrums, through the stormy, rocky region, and beyond the raging whirlpool. No one has EVER gone that far.

Ever?

Ever!

Well, WE can! We're Vikings!

And Vikings are tough!

ALL: Yaaa!

We'll find a new land and leave our Viking marks.

(WIND HOWLING)

The wind's up! Man your posts, Vikings!

Oh, for goodness sake. Those silly Vikings think they're very so tough. Wait until they meet me!

(WIND HOWLING)

Do you see anything yet, Viking Pablo?

Just water.

According to this map. The first thing we have to go through is the doldrums.

The doldrums?

That's a place on the ocean where there's no wind at all. So the sails don't work.

Uh-oh. When the sails don't work, the ship won't move, and then we'll be stuck.

But there's so much wind today. I bet we won't hit in the doldrums.

Well, the map says they're coming, uh…

But look at all this breeze.

…right about…

There's no way it’s gonna stop.

…now.

(WIND STOPS)

It stopped.

Yup.

We're DEFINITELY not moving.

Uh-uh. We're stuck in the doldrums.

But we're Vikings! We're so tough we can make our own land! Yaaa!

BOTH: Yaaa!

Ready, Vikings? One, two, three!

(THEY HUFF AND BLOW)

Come on, Vikings! You can do better than that!

(BLOWING AT SAIL)

(PANTING)

(GROANING IN EXHAUSTION)

Well, that didn't work.

It certainly didn't.

How are we gonna get moving?

We can row.

Yaaa!

BOTH: Yaaa!

You two row. I'll supervise. Here we go, Vikings!

Row! Row! Row!

Yaaa!

ALL: Row! Row! Row! Row!

TYRONE: We're moving! It's working!

BOTH, DISTANTLY: Row! Row!

Those Vikings may be tough enough to get out of the doldrums, but wait 'til they see what's next. (SNICKERING)

BOTH: Row, row, row, row, row, row…

Listen.

Wind! Yaaa!

UNIQUA: We've rowed out of the doldrums! Yaaa!

ALL: Yaaa!

What's next on the map, Viking Tyrone?

TYRONE: Next, we go to the stormy, rocky region.

Uh-oh. The storm could blow the ship onto the rocks, and then we'll be stuck.

But it doesn't LOOK stormy.

Yeah, but the map said we should be hitting the stormy rocky region, right…

There's not a cloud in the sky.

…about…

We're not anywhere near a stormy region!

(THUNDERCLAP)

…now!

(THUNDER RUMBLING)

Okay, I was WRONG about the storm, but what about the rocks?

Rocks straight ahead!

(THUNDER CRASHING)

(GRUNTING)

You guys! Help me steer!

We've got to stay away from the rocks!

We need to go this way! Pull!

ALL: Yaaa!

(THUNDER CRASHES)

(SIGHS)

That was close.

Look out! More rocks!

We need to go that way! Push, Vikings, push!

ALL: Yaaa!

(LIGHTNING FLASHING)

(SIGHS)

That was even closer.

I think we're almost through.

No, we aren't. Look!

TYRONE: Uh-oh.

Come on, Vikings! Pull!

ALL: Yaaa!

Push!

ALL: Yaaa!

(SIGHS)

Are we through?

I don't see any more rocks ahead.

Yay!

Just really big waves!

ALL: Whoa! Whoa!

Is it over?

(STAMMERING) I think it's over.

Definitely. It's over.

I knew we could do it! We made it through the stormy, rocky region!

Because we're Vikings!

And Vikings are tough!

ALL: Yaaa!

(DISTANTLY): Yaaa!

(ALL LAUGHING)

Oh, for goodness sake. They think they're tough just because they made it through the stormy, rocky regions. (SCOFFS) Well, I love it around here. Why? Because mermaids are the toughest.

🎵 Oh, you probably think that mermaids are lovely, nice and sweet. We hang out in the water with tails instead of feet. Well yes, you're right, I'm cute and nice, but when the sea gets rough, I'm not only beautiful, I'm extra, extra tough. Hmmmm… I'm faster than a dolphin, I'm stronger than a whale. I can stop a Viking ship with one swish of my tail! Those Vikings look so stylish with helmets, vests and stuff! But I'm even more beautiful and extra, extra tough! Hmmmm… I'll trap those funky Vikings inside my mermaid lair! I'll make them sing me Viking songs and probably keep them there. They might be great explorers, but that won't be enough! 'Cause I'm not only beautiful, I'm extra, extra tough! Yes, I'm not only beautiful… I'm extra, extra tough! 🎵

Hmmmm… Okay. We've gone past the doldrums, and through the stormy regions, and now the only thing we have to do is go beyond the raging whirlpool.

Cool! Wait. What's a raging whirlpool?

It's a big swirly place in the water where the ship gets sucked down into the sea.

(MIMICS WHIRLPOOL)

Whoa.

Do you see anything whirly?

Nope. Mmmm… nope.

(WHIRLPOOL GETS CLOSER & LOUDER)

Uh-oh.

Uh-oh!

BOTH: What?

(GASPS) Whirlpool!

(BOTH GASP)

That's a whirlpool! We're headed straight for the whirlpool! It's really, really, really whirly!

Pablo…

Stay calm. Don't worry. Nobody panic. We'll figure it out.

Pablo…

We've got through the stormy rocky regions…

TYRONE: Pablo!

Yeah?

There's only one thing we can do.

What's that?

(PANICKED):

Hold on tight!

Right. Hold on tight.

ALL: Whoa!

Whoa!

Whoa!

Hold on tight!

Hold on tight!

🎵 You gotta hold on tight… 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hold tight! 🎵

🎵 You gotta hold on tight! 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hold tight! 🎵

ALL: 🎵 You gotta hold on tight with all your Viking might! 🎵

🎵 We're a-spinnin' into a tizzy! And I'm feelin' mighty dizzy! I gotta hold on tight! 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hold tight! 🎵

🎵 I gotta hold on tight! 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hold tight! 🎵

🎵 I gotta hold on tight with all my Viking might! 🎵

ALL: Whoa…whoa, whoa, whoa… Whoa, whoa, whoa…Whoa…Whoa, whoa, whoa… Whoa…Whoa… Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Don't let go!

🎵 I can't freak out, I gotta be cool 'til we get out of this whirlpool! 🎵

ALL: 🎵 We gotta hold on tight! Hold tight! We gotta hold on tight! Hold tight! We gotta hold on tight with all our Viking might! We gotta hold on tight with all our Viking might! 🎵

(SCREAMING)

Whew!

We did it!

You did? We did! You made it pass the raging whirlpool!

And now we've sailed farther than any other Vikings in the history of Vikings!

TYRONE AND UNIQUA: Yaaa!

UNIQUA AND PABLO: Yaaa!

Well, we don't need this anymore. We've sailed past everything on the map!

We're uncharted seas!

Nothing can stop us now!

Hey, what was that?

(GIGGLING)

(ALL GASP)

It's over there!

Over there!

There!

(ALL GASP)

There! There! There!

You guys, wait.

Gotcha!

(SCREAMS)

(GIGGLING)

(GASPS)

You're a mermaid!

Oh, for goodness sake. Of course I am. See?

We're Vikings, looking for undiscovered land.

ALL: Yaaa!

Oh, you are. Are you?

Do you know any land we can discover?

Land? You mean that stuff sticks up out of the water?

Yaaa, that's the stuff.

Well, there's some over that way that no one can discover it.

PABLO, TYRONE AND UNIQUA: There is?

Uh-huh.

ALL: Yaaa!

But, I'm afraid you're not going to discover it.

Why not?

Because I say so. You have sailed into my sea. The lair of the mermaid, and I'm holding captives.

Nuh-uh.

You can't stop us!

We're Vikings! And we're tough!

Well, mermaids are even tougher than Vikings.

ALL: Whoa!

She's strong.

I think we better get out of here.

Good call. Come on, Pablo. Let's row.

(STRAINING)

(STRUGGLING)

Oh, no, you don't!

(GASPS) The other way!

(STRAINING)

(STRUGGLING)

Nice try.

(GASPS) Let's turn.

(BOTH GRUNTING)

See? I've got you surrounded.

Whoa. Mermaids ARE tough.

You are now my captives. You will sing me songs forever. Sing, I command you!

Uh, okay, mermaid. We just wanted what song to sing. Vikings, over here.

How about we start off with "The Wheels on the Bus"?

Actually, I have a plan. She wants us to sing, right?

BOTH, SOFTLY: Uh-huh.

(SOFTLY):

So, let's sing her a lullaby.

A lullaby?

Yeah, she'll fall asleep, and then we can escape.

Great plan!

(SOFTLY):

Come on, come on, let's try it.

Alright, mermaid. Are you ready for a song?

You bet I am! Make it a good one.

(CLEARS THROAT)

🎵 Rest my little darling, you've had a busy day. The sun is a-falling, and it's time for me to say…hush. 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hush. 🎵

🎵 Hush little mermaid, goodnight. 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hush. 🎵

🎵 Hush little mermaid, sleep tight. 🎵

(TASHA YAWNS)

🎵 Hush. Close your eyes, close your eyes and lay down your head in your peaceful ocean bed, have a snooze, please, like I said and hush. 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hush. 🎵

🎵 Hush little mermaid, goodnight. Hush little mermaid, sleep tight. 🎵

I'm feeling a little sleepy.

🎵 You're feeling kind of sleepy. 🎵

🎵 You're feeling kind of loopy. 🎵

🎵 Your fins are getting floppy. 🎵

🎵 And your eyelids getting droopy. 🎵

🎵 May your dreams be sweet as you fall into a snooze. Perhaps again and we'll meet, but now we have to cruise, so hush. 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hush. 🎵

🎵 Hush little mermaid, goodnight. 🎵

BOTH: 🎵 Hush. 🎵

ALL: 🎵 Hush little mermaid, sleep tight, hush…Hush little mermaid, goodnight. Hush little mermaid, hush little mermaid, goodnight. 🎵

(SNORING)

(PABLO SNORING)

(SNORTS)

(MUMBLES GROGGILY)

TYRONE, QUIETLY: Row. Row. Row. Row. Row. Row.

(SOFT AND QUIET ROCKABILLY MUSIC CONTINUES PLAYING)

Pablo, see anything?

Nope. (GASPS) I mean, yes! Land ho! Land ho!

Land ho!

We found new land!

ALL: Land ho!

Woo-hoo!

Oh, yeah!

(GIGGLING)

We're here!

We made it!

Our very own undiscovered land!

That no one has ever discovered before!

ALL: Yaaa!

What do you think it's here?

Ice like in Iceland?

Vines like in Vineland?

Green stuff like in Greenland?

Nope.

Just…

…sand.

Well, Vikings, what should we call our new land?

Well, Iceland has ice so they call it Iceland.

And Vineland has vines so they call it Vineland.

Well, this place has sand, so let's call it…

ALL: Sandland!

Come on, Vikings. Let's make our Viking marks.

I'm Viking Uniqua.

I'm Viking Pablo.

I'm Viking Tyrone.

And we are…

The Tough Vikings of Sandland!

ALL: Yaaa!

(PABLO'S STOMACH GROWLING)

What was that?

That was my tough Viking belly. Discovering new land made me hungry.

Me too.

Come on, let's go to my house. We've got graham crackers.

ALL: Yaaa!

Graham crackers? Alright!

(ALL LAUGHING)

That was a tough Viking adventure. Don't you think?

Way tough.

Even the mermaid.

Totally, we're tough.

Yeah!

ALL: 🎵 We've got the whole wide world in our yard to explore, now it's time for us to have a snack, meet you next time when we're back with your friends, the Backyardigans! 🎵

See you later!

See ya!

See you next time!

Later!

Snack time!

Graham crackers and milk.

I love graham crackers!

Me too!

Yaaa!
