  • Tubby wants to play the violins' tune, but it's too light and flimsy for a big tuba. He ends up squashing the little tune, and the conductor sends him away. Tubby wanders forlornly to the edge of a pond where he meets a Bullfrog. The Bullfrog teaches him a new song that becomes Tubby's very own melody.

    [Tubby (Tim Hauser):]
    Alone am I, me and I together.
    If I went away from me,
    How unhappy I would be,
    Me and I, oh my.

    [Bullfrog (Alan Paul):]
    Bug-Gup! Bug-Gup!
    Lovely evening!
    Bug-Gup! Bug-Gup!
    I said. "lovely evening!"
    Clunk! Clunk! Clunk!
    I said, "Bee-oo-tiful evening!"
    Hello! Bug-Gup!
    Hello! Bug-Gup!
    Hello!
