Bunyan and Babe

Synopsis: 12 year old Travis Barclay and his little sister Whitney are sent begrudgingly on a summer trip to visit their grandparents' farm in Delbert County. A greedy land developer, Norm Blandsford, has been buying up the little country town, running the hard working residents off their land. After Travis has a run-in with one of Blandsford's men, he is chased into the forest where he stumbles upon a magic portal to the hidden world where Paul Bunyan lives. Paul has been in self-imposed exile for 100 years, ever since the advent of machines made his role in society obsolete and left him feeling of little value to the new world. Paul, reluctantly, escorts Travis back to the farm. But upon returning,Paul witnesses Blandsford's sinister plan. Suddenly filled by a long-forgotten sense of purpose, Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox, get wrapped up in a brand new adventure and together with the help of their new friends, Travis and Whitney, they save the town.

--You just

ruined my game, Whitney.

Travis, mom's looking for you.

I'll be right there, mom.

Are you even packed?

Are you even human?

What other species could I be?

Travis, what are you doing?

Where's your bag?

Grandpa's ready to go.

Hello there, kids.




Yeah, one sec.

Hold on.

Mom, do I have time to

run over to Rick's house?


It's time to go.

Here's your bag.

No, I can't.

Me and Whitney are leaving

for my grandparents' farm.

Yeah believe me, i

do not want to go.

My parents want us to

rediscover nature, or whatever.


Bye Rick.

He'll see you in a few weeks.

Travis, remember our agreement--

no cell phones, no video games.

Oh, so in other words, no fun.

I won't survive more than a day.

You know that, right?

Why wouldn't you survive?

You'll have food, water, and

shelter, all the essentials

for survival.


Whitney honey, why don't

you take your things down

to the truck?

I don't want to go this year.

Why can't Whitney

just go by herself?

Because I said so.

Let's go.

I'm not going.

I think I'm big enough

to make my own decisions.


It's only for a

few weeks, Travis.

You'll live.

Come here, give me a hug.

Okey-dokey, kids,

you ready to roll?

Pop, you drive carefully, ok?

It's not a race.

Eh, keep up a good pace?

Well, I'll do my best.

And we're off.

Don't forget to take a

bath and brush your teeth.

Blah, blah

and be nice to your sister.


Have fun.

Be good.

There's one from north Dakota.

Now I only need Indiana,

Kansas, Missouri, and Ohio

and I'll have the

complete midwest.

And how many states

do you have, Travis?

You are such a grump.

Grumpy mcgrumpster,

woke up today--

grumpy mcgrumpsteen,

and a voice was--

grumpy mcgrumpacuddy,


grumpy mcgrumperpants,

than my heart,--

grumpy mcgrumpcake.

Please, be

quiet, whitless.


carries a scar.

You just

proved my point.

Please tell me we're there.

The dreams

that I've been dreamin'--


Bears don't wear hats.

No, grandpa.

--Take me

back to Kentucky.

Are we there yet?

Eh, almost.

Ooh, look, there's Paul bunyan.

Well, we're halfway home.

He sure is big.

It's just another

statue, whitless.

I didn't think he was real.

We read all about him in school.

He was the world's

greatest lumberjack.

A folk hero of the

American frontier.

Hey now, just because

there are folk tales

about a man doesn't mean at one

time he didn't really exist.

How do you two think legends

get started, anyways?

You know, as much as i

like visiting the big city,

it sure is nice to come

home to some familiar faces.

Hey, how are ya?


You know, delbert

hasn't changed a lick

since your grandma

and I were kids.

Ooh, which reminds me,

we have to pick her up

before we head to the farm.

Pick her up?

Oh, there she is.

If I see one more

broken down farm truck,

I swear I'm going

to break something.

I mean what a friggin' cliche.

Just look at that one.

Old Freddy farmer out there

picking up his pain-in-the-neck

blue-haired wife.

Iris, what the

heck are you doing?

Excuse me, sir.

You told me to notify you

when your commercial is on.


Want to

make the perfect deal?

Then call blandsford


where perfection is the norm.

What could you

possibly be writing?

Some notes, sir.

I think the graphics

could use some work.

And you were a little

stiff in that take.

Did I ask you to take notes?

I didn't hire you for

your opinions, Iris.

You better watch it, or your

first week will be your last.

My first week of what, sir?
