Zack's Zap Pack

Genre: Family
62 min


Zack was a popular

everyday kid

He had lots and lots

of friends

Just like everyone did,

But daddy came home

with some terrible news,

He got a pink slip and now

they've all got to move

Packing up his things,

his life is gonna change,

Saying goodbye to friends

is the hardest of things

Now he lives in Mudville

where there's no joy in town

Will Zack ever get rid

of his permanent frown?

Now there's no time to mope,

we got to go to the store

And buy a backpack

and so much more

Zack had to grab the last pack

on the shelf

And what a surprise,

it ain't like nothing else

'Cause Zack's backpack is

a Zap Pack

[Harmonica music]

Here's your new home,

little guy.

Zachary, how was your morning?


That's nice. Did you get

your room unpacked?

Nope. Still hoping

this is a nightmare.

Can you help me unload

these groceries?

How much did you buy?

Everything that was on sale,

plus I used coupons.

We've got to start thinking

and acting differently

Now that we're...

We're poor?

We're not poor, Zachary.

Mom, look around.

We went from living

in Hickory Heights

To living in this shoebox.

Would you stop complaining?

Now is the time for us

to roll up our sleeves

And work harder.

Now, I'm going to

finish unpacking

And you are gonna

start unpacking.

Wait, here.

What are these?

Your school supplies.


Now what?

I just don't wanna be

the new kid.

Well, you'll make lots

of new friends.

I was happy with

my old friends.

Is this...

Your backpack,

last one on clearance.

I got it for 75 cents.

You overpaid.

Organize your stuff.

[Playing the blues]

I'm livin' in Mudville,

all is wrong,

I got a dumb backpack,

now my life is whack

[Playing the blues]

[Harmonica music]

Miss my friends.

This stinks of dad's feet.

Organize your stuff.

If you need me, I'll be

painting the bedroom.

All right.

[Instrumental music]

Is there something in here?

[Instrumental music]

[Instrumental music]

What the... Where am I?


Oh, Woody, why'd you

bring him in here?

You know this is

a big mistake.

Relax, pinkie.

Hello, Zachary.

Wake up, wake up.

I think he's dead.

Oh, nonsense.

He's only passed out.

Well, if we're lucky,

he'll stay that way.

[Calculator chattering]

I don't care if he looks nice.

He's not dangerous.

Well, I've seen boys like him

chew on pencils

Much bigger than you.

[Instrumental music]

[Calculator chattering]

Hmm, he's definitely dead now.

Calm down, he's fine.

Just a little overwhelmed.

Hello, Zachary.

It's okay.

We are here to help.

Who are you?

What are you?

Well, I'm a pencil.

You've seen a pencil before,

haven't you?

Yeah, I've seen pencils,

but they've never talked.

Too bad. We pencils are very sharp

in more ways than one.


Allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Woodrow Garfield

Abraham the Third,

But you can call me Woody,

And these are my friends,

Pinkie and T.I.

Right now, you are

in your backpack.

It's a Zap Pack.

A Zap Pack?

Yes, because you've been

zapped in here.

I'd rather be zapped back

to Hickory Heights.

That's where all

my friends are.

Can we do that?

[Calculator chattering]

- What'd he say?

- He said that he would

be your friend.

In fact, we all would.

Speak for yourselves.

Listen guys, I don't really

want any new friends.

I had great friends,

but now I'm alone in Mudville.

Worse, I'm alone in

a discount knapsack.

Zap Pack.


I must be dreaming.

Come on, Zack, wake up.

Wake up! Wake up!

You're not dreaming

and you're not alone.

Come over to my pad.

I've got a story

to draw for you.
