♪ Oh, you plant your seeds
down in the dirt ♪

♪ You bury 'em deep
so they don't get hurt ♪

♪ You wait a few months ♪

♪ They turn into plants ♪

♪ And that's when you do
the little plants dance! ♪

Ha! Hey, that wasn't
that bad!


You're never gonna
believe this!

There's this place
across town that sells

this super-fancy ice cream
called "frozen yogurt."

They got a sauce
that's just birthday cake
they put in a blender!

Can we go, Dad?

-Please? Please? Pretty please?
-Please? Please?

Come on, please,
please, please!

Aw, sorry, kids.

I've got a lot of planting
to do before sundown.

But, you know, if we all
pitched in and worked
together, we could--

Nah, I'll just ask Gramma
to drive us.

Ooh, I don't know
about that.

I haven't seen her drive
in a while, so it might
not be the best idea--

-Hey! I heard that.

Come on, kids.

Let Gramma take you
for a spin.

-[both] Yay!
-Hey, wait!

Fine! Enjoy your yogurt.

I'm gonna stay here
and fill up on hard work!


And... here we are!

Uh, Gramma, what are we doing
in the old garage?

Dad's truck is
in the front yard.

We're not taking
that hunk of junk!

We're riding...

in style.

Wow, Gramma, I didn't know
you had a car.

There's a lot you don't
know about me, boy!

I was the queen
of the track.

Hot Rod Alice,
they called me.

I was unstoppable!

So that's where I inherited
my need for speed.

Darn right!

Now, let's go get
that 'gurt!

[both] Yeah!

[chanting] Yogurt!
Yogurt! Yogurt!


Aah! You okay, Gramma?

That dang fool
came out of nowhere!

You all saw it.

I sure saw it,
and felt it, too!

Looks like we've gotten
ourselves into a delicious
little T-bone here. [laughs]

Ma'am, I'm gonna need
to see your license, please.

Hmm! There.
Read it and weep.

Oh, my! Your license expired
before I was even born.

Looks like you'll have
to get a new one!

Oh, well,
what a shame, Officer.

There must be something
you can do to help out
a girl in need.

-[simpers, kisses]

Huh, I'm afraid not,
Ms. Green.

You see, a license like this
has no purpose any more.

It's old.
It's useless.

Oh, look! It's actually turning
to dust right before our eyes.

Anywhoo, ticket time!

Ms. Green, if you ever want
to get behind the wheel again,

you'll have to retake
the driver's test.

[laughs] Okay, now I'm
gonna go call

a tow truck for
and an ambulance for me!

Ha-ha ow!

-[truck beeping]
-[Gramma] Easy, now!

You be careful with her!

You scratch my paint,
I'll have your hide!


Listen, Ma, you don't
need your license.

Now that
we all live together,

I can drive you
wherever you need to go,

so you can just sit here
and do nothin'.

I'm gonna go
with the tow truck guy.

I'll be back later.

Ah, don't listen to Dad.

I bet you'll ace
that driver's test.

You'll be back
on the road in no time.

I ain't takin'
that test!

That Officer Keys
is a tyrant!

I got nothin' to prove
to him or anyone else!

Gramma's really mad.

She's even grinding
her teeth.

Why's she so upset?

Maybe she just needs
a confidence boost.

Hmm. Tilly, you're right,
and I know just how to do it!

Hey, Gramma.

There's something outside
I need to show you.

Oh, Tilly, did you
turn the backyard
into a rat circus again?

Nope. This is even better.

What the--?

Hello, Gramma!

And welcome
to Cricket's Crash Course

for Learning
How to Not Crash Cars!

We're gonna help you
pass that driver's test,

and you'll be learning
on this baby "rightch" here.

Boy, where'd you get
all those traffic cones?

Oh, you know, around.

-[tires squeal, glass smashes]
-[woman] Look out!

Well, put 'em back!

I already know
how to drive,

and I sure as heck
don't need to take lessons

from a couple of imps!

-Tilly, can you
handle this, please?
-Of course.



Oh, man, just look
at this, Gramma!

You're tearing
your granddaughter apart!

Mm... all right, fine!

I'll do the dang course.

Just knock it off, Tilly!


All right, Ms. Green,
let's take this nice and slow.

Go ahead and shift
into "turtle" for me.

Ooh, come on, Alice.

Pull yourself together.

Very good.
Now, head towards those cones.

Easy, easy.

We're turning,
still turning.

And boom!
There we go.

Hmm, all right.
This ain't too bad.

Uh-huh. Very good.
Very-- Tilly, now!

[stagily] Oh, no!
I lost control of my baby!

-[electronically] Mama!
-[gasps] Unh!

Nice work! You never know

what you're gonna encounter
on the road.

Oh, no, my baby's
now a teenager

and is going through
a rebellious phase!

[laughs] Unh!

Nice work, Gramma!

And now it's just slow
and steady to the finish line.

Eh, I got
a better idea.

A race to the finish!

Gramma, no! Aah!

-[skeleton hollers]
-[both scream]

Oh! Tuck and roll,
Cricket, aah!

Oh, Alice.

Tilly, what
were you thinking?

This wasn't part
of the plan.

The road holds many
unexpected surprises.

Some things are meant
to be run over.

[electronically laughs]
Happy Halloween!

Hmm. Well, I have to applaud
your enthusiasm, Tilly.

Okay, Gramma, ready
to try again? Gramma?

Hey, where you goin'?
We're not finished.

Well, I am.
I'm finished.

Poor Gramma.

Huh. Givin' up
isn't like her at all.

I think it's time we took
this plan from turtle to rabbit.

Hey, Gramma,
I got something I need to--

No, Cricket,
I'm done with drivin'!

No more crazy schemes.

All right. If that's
how you truly feel...

Gah! Got your glasses!

Huh? I can't
see nothin'!

Where'd you go,
you little gremlin?


Over here, Gramma!
This way!


Come on!
Hurry up, Gramma!

Wait till I get
my hands on you!

What's going on?
Where am I?

Class is back in session.

What is it--
Bill's truck?

You tricked me!

[Cricket] I'm real sorry
about that, Gramma.

I guess you'll just have
to take the wheel and drive.

-What do you mean, no?

Nobody tricks me
and tells me what to do!




Gramma, come on!
You gotta take the wheel!


-[tires squeal]
-Hey, watch it, pal!


Look, Gramma, I'm sorry
I tricked you, okay?

We just wanted to help you
get your confidence back

so you could pass
that dang test.

♪ I love selling hot dogs ♪

♪ No! ♪

Aw, poor hot-dog man.

Come on, Gramma,
just drive already!

What's wrong with you?
You're Hot Rod Alice,
for goodness sake.

Why won't you drive?

'Cause I'm scared, Cricket!

Okay? I'm scared!

What? You're scared?

I'm scared
of getting old,

I'm scared
of becoming useless,

and I'm scared that if I fail
that driver's test,

it'll prove just that.

I-- I didn't know
you felt that way.

It's okay, Gramma.

Lots of things
scare me, too,

like that gate we're
about to smash through.

The what? Aah!

No, no, no-- Aww!

Well, at least
we stopped movin'.

I think we're
finally safe.

-[announcer] Ouchy-wa-wa!

Looks like cars five and two
just munched bumpers

and narrowly avoided hitting
that unmarked pickup truck,

which doesn't seem
to be on my list,

but, hey, we didn't get

into the demolition
derby business

to worry about
tiny details.

Now, let's see
if they've got what it takes

to survive
the menacing clutches of...

Crunch-a-saurus Rex!


Marry me, Crunch-a-saurus!


-Oh, no.
-Would you look at that!

One dinosaur
about to eat another.

How fitting.

Listen, I know you're scared
of gettin' old,

but you can't just give up!

That's not who you are.

You might not be
Hot Rod Alice anymore,

but that's okay, because you're
something even better:

-Our gramma.
-Our Hot Rod Gramma!

Oh, kids, come here.


This one's going down!


Holy crunch-a-munga!

Looks like the diesel dino
has found its next victim.

Eat their souls,

That's it!

No more mopin' around!

Time to show everyone
what Hot Rod Gramma can do!

[tires squealing]

Crunch-a-saurus, no!

Crunchy, no!

My beautiful metal boy!

Go, Gramma!

Told you I know
how to drive.

Step on it, Gramma!

I've got
a better idea.


[signal clicking]

That's a little something
I call the Turtle Maneuver.

Learned it
from the best.

Now, let's
go home!

[both] Yay!

[crowd booing]

There. Good as new.

Next I just gotta
fix the tractor, my truck,

and everything else
that Ma broke.

I heard that!

Gramma! You're back!

How'd the driver's test go,
Hot Rod?

Well, naturally your old grandma
aced it with flying colors.

Of course, I can't
drive on freeways

or after dark,
but I still got it!

Now, who wants
frozen yogurt?

-I'll drive.

Well, with all
the work to do still,

it sure would go
a lot faster if we all--

Nah. Bye, Dad!


Well, at least I got you
to help me out.

[electronically laughs]
Happy Halloween!

Uh... sure.
Happy Halloween.


- Hey!
- Whoo!

Look, I don't know
how you pay for things

back in Hickville or wherever,

but a little dance ain't gonna
buy yourself a burrito.

I bet you'd trade for an ear
of golden corn

from my dad's garden.

Kid, do I look stupid?

Uh, a little bit.
[gasps] What the heck?!

Stop right there.

Oh, hey, kids.

Meet my new friends
from Animal Control!

My, my,
what large weapons you have.

Howdy, officers.

Animal Control?
What do you do?

We control animals.

Hey, that trash
is city property!

[squawks, snores]

Sorry about that, citizen.

Looks like we've mistook you

for the wild bear
that's on the loose.

- A bear?!
- That's right.

A terrifying grizzly bear
has been sighted in Big City,

and it has to be caught!

You're talking to the right guy.
I hate bears.

They're monsters and nothing
would make me happier

than bringing one to justice.

If you see any trace
of the beast...

[singsong] call me!

I knew the day would come

where I would have to hunt down
a giant grizzly.

[hawk cries]

I just never thought
it would be so soon.

Now who wants to capture bear?

Yeah! Wait, why?
Why would we do that?

Cricket has never found bears

You're dang right!
Bears are a menace.

They'll terrorize the innocent,
rifle through our garbage,

and, if left unchecked,

will eventually destroy
this good city!

[bear roaring]

Really? You must have dealt
with a lot of bears

back in the country, huh?

Remy, I've never been met
a bear in my life,

and for that,
I consider myself lucky.

You don't need to meet a bear
to know they're awful.

Well, sounds good to me.

Now let's go catch ourselves
a bear!

[both cheer]

Hello, I'd like guacamole
on my burrito!

What? Hmm.

- Whoa!
- Gotcha, bear.

Oh, whoops,
just another jogger.

Sorry about that, sir.

I think this
ought to make us square.

Your silence
is appreciated.

You know what they say.
12th times the charm.

That's the spirit, Remy.

Now let's get back
into position.

Hmm, this is a fuzzy tree.

- [growling]
- Huh?

Oh, my gosh.
You found the bear.

Oh, my gosh!
I found the bear!


[all scream]

Agh! Oh, it's gonna eat me!
I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead!

Look away!
I don't want you to see this!

- [both] Cricket!
- [grunts]

[bear grunts happily]

What's going on?
Playing with your food, huh?

Well, I'm taking myself
off the menu!

How do you like that?!

[grunts] Whoa!

Put 'em up, put 'em up!

I got you
right where I want you.

How you like that?!

I'm crushing the wind
out of your chest!

- [bear groans]
- I did it!

[both] Yay!
According to the law,

you are now my prisoner,

I'll hold her.
Call it in, brother.

There, there.

Hello, animal control?
I'm about to make your day.

You know that renegade bear?

I happen to have it
in my custody.

[bear growls]

Oh, shoot,
she's getting away, Cricket!

- Hey, bear, no escaping!
- Kid! What's happening?!

Hey, where do you think
you're going?

Oh, Cricket.
She just wants a burrito.

Every prisoner deserves
a last meal.

Cricket, that's crazy!
This is a wild animal!

I think she's just

She's probably just new
around these parts like us.

Hmm, I am a firm warden
but a fair one.

I will grant the prisoner
one last meal.

And let's make it quick.



One of your finest burritos,

Take them all!

Wow. Thanks.

Thank you very much
for the burritos, Daisy.

Jeez, Tilly.
Don't give it a name.

It's a bear, not our friend.

Okay, I can't watch this.
Let me do it.

Stupid bear. Oh.

You like fish burritos, too.
I thought I was the only one.

[Daisy slurping]

Okay, you got your meal.

Now it's time you got
to Animal Control.

- But, Cricket, she's parched.
- [smacks lips]

Yeah, I guess she is looking
a little thirsty.

All right, fine,
you softies.


[Daisy huffing,
all scream]

Now hurry it up.
Ain't got all day.

[chuckles] What a dummy.

Okay, it's time to turn you in.

Oh, so soon?

Yeah, you know,
she's kind of cute.

Well, maybe after
a few more last requests.

♪ And you ♪


That's us, everyone!
Thank you and good night!

[all scream]

- [both cheering]
- Please, please,
you're too kind.

What should we sing next?

Ooh, how about something
with a little country twang?

- [groans]
- I see, a music snob.

Well, we'll see about that.
[laughs] Cootchie-cootchie-coo.

- Bear pile!
- [laughter]

Put your paws in the air.

Oh, my word, were too late!

It's eating those kids!

[groans sadly]

- All right!
- Shotgun!

We can't thank you enough,

It was actually thanks
to your tip earlier

that we were able to catch
this brute.

Funny how things work out.

Oh, sure.
[chuckles] No problem.

This is exactly what I wanted.

[engine starts]

Be gentle with her!

She can't get to sleep
unless you sing to her!

She loves being scratched
behind the ears!

And I'm pretty sure her
favorite food is fish burritos!

Cricket, was this
the right thing to do?

I think so, Tilly.
But then why does my heart hurt?

After all,
she was just a bear.

Oh, who am I kidding?

Daisy was more than a bear.
She was our friend.

And friends don't leave
of friends in cold,

animal-sized prison cells.


That's our signal.

A fried egg is not poached.
They're so different!




Oh, my gosh, we hit a kid!

Rupert! You told me you were
gonna dance on the big stage!

You can't give up now!

Wait, Tilly, this isn't
what we practiced at all.

I'm a free spirit.
Try to keep up.

- Your father the Duke
never approved of us!
- Still dying! Oh!

What is this?

I don't know,
but I can't look away.

Daisy! You're okay!

Good to see you, too.

Ow, okay, that hurts
more than it tackles.

The wedding is cancelled!

They were so young.

Hey, do you guys smell pumpkin?

it's spaghetti squash.

That small man is right!

[gasps] Hey, get back here!

Uh-oh. Time to go.

Don't let that bear get away!

[siren wailing]

- That went well.
- I have some notes.


look out for those joggers!

I'm back to selling burritos.

Ain't nothing gonna stop me now.


They're gaining on us!

We're going around!

Aw, Daisy, I didn't mean for it
all to go down like this.

I used to think bears
were uncivilized,

savage hair monsters,
but you're pretty great.

You know, you and I
aren't so different.

A lot of people say I don't
belong in the city.

So if you want to stay here,
then I got your back.

But what's the best hiding spot
for a city bear?

- [groaning]
- Hey, what are you doing?

Daisy, where do you think
you're going?

You can't live in the sewer.

Wait a second,
there's food here.

It's damp like a cave,
and there's even running water.

Well, if this is where you want
to stay, Daisy, it's fine by me.

I mean, I wish I could stay
with you,

but with you living
in a sewer and all,

it's just kind of gross.

So I guess this is goodbye.

Okay, well I guess
you'd better get out of here

before one of us starts crying.

[moans sadly]

Heh, Cricket Green
helping a bear.

What a crazy world.

End of the line, young man.
Let's nab ourselves a bear!

Oh, you want a bear, do you?
Well, you're in luck!

Y'all got yourselves
a sewer bear now!


Oh, my.

Hoo boy! [laughs]

I hope you're happy, kid.

Not only did we lose
the bear's trail,

but my new boots
are completely ruined!

Pack it up, boys,
we're getting out of here.

[both laugh]

You hear that, girl?
We did it.

And with little
to no consequences, too.

[sneezes] Huh.
That can't be good.

Yep, that's a fever,
all right.

Well, that's what you get
for playing in the sewer.

Ah, nothing some of my
famous chili can't fix.


We're proud of you, Cricket.
You did a good thing.

Thanks, guys.

- Are you contagious?
- Oh, very much so.

"My dearest, Daisy,

I hope this letter
finds you well

and that happiness and security
are within your grasp.

Until we meet again,
here's a little gift from me.

Your friend, Cricket Green.
