Frog and Toad (2023-…): Season 1, Episode 5 - The Kite/Lost - full transcript

Frog and Toad attempt to fly their homemade kite despite some doubting Robins. Frog handles being lost differently than Toad does.

Are you wondering how healthy the food you are eating is? Check it -

Yes. Very good.

-Toad?-Yes, Frog?

I believe our kite is ready to fly.

Are you sure?

I am sure.

It will fly all the way to the topof the sky. You will see.

Well, all right then. I will see.

[door opens, closes]

You seem very sure of this kite, Frog.

That is because I have confidence.

Hmm. What do you mean by "confidence"?

Confidence is believing in somethingso much that it is sure to happen.

Well, I have never made a kite before,and neither have you.

But I would like for it to fly.

Then have some confidence, and it will.

All right.

If you say so.

Ooh, look at that.

Hiya, Frog.

Hiya, Toad.

What ya got there, hmm?

A kite. Frog and I made it.

Frog says it will flyall the way to the top of the sky.

I have confidence.

Oh, really?All the way to the top of the sky?

Well, we sure would like to see that.

Well then, come to the meadowand you may watch.

Now let us see this kite fly.



Frog, what just happened?Not enough confidence?

Not enough wind.

We need confidence and wind to fly a kite.

Do you see the wind? I do not.

[smacks lips] Try this.

Why that?

This is a way to find the wind.I see other folks do it sometimes.

[smacks lips] Hmm.

Is it working?

Mmm. I am not sure.

Maybe we should try something else.

-Wind? Hello, wind? Are you there?-Wind, come this way! We need you!

[wind blowing]

Frog, see that? The wind heard us.

Yes, it feels very windy.This must be good for flying our kite.

Let's try again. I will hold the stringwhile you run with the kite.

Right. Here I go.

[grunting, panting]



Why are you making that… [tutting] …sound?

We have bad news for you, Toad.Your kite will not fly.

-It won't?-Oh, no. Not at all.

Well, why not? We have plenty of wind.

-Too heavy.-No feathers.

-Lacks aerodynamics.-Too many holes.

-Not enough holes.-Oh, forget about it.


Frog, this kite will not fly.

Oh? How can you be so sure?

The robins told me.

They said it lacks aerodynamics.

I have no idea what that even means,but whatever it is, we do not have it.

Toad, do not listen to those birds.They know nothing about flying.

Trust me, I'm a frog.

We do not need aerodynamics.


No. Because we have confidence, remember?

Try once more, Toad.This time, wave the kite over your head.

[chuckles] Confidence.

Oh, and waving. Don't forget the waving!

[grunting, panting]

I have confidence! [grunts]

Wow, they are not giving up.

[robins] Aw.


We tried to tell you, Toad.

That kite will never make it to the sky.

[groans]Our kite will never make it to the sky.

Toad, have you beenlistening to the robins again?



We must try one very last time.

This time, you should run,wave and jump up and down.

[panting, grunting]

Lean into the wind!

Use the airfoil!

Go, Toad!

It's flying. It's flying!

It's falling.

[robins] Aw.

We know you're trying, Toad. We really do.

But it will never work.You might as well throw that kite away.

We might as well throw this kite away.

Toad, we must tryone more very, very last time.

This time, you should run, hop upand down, wave and shout, "Up, kite, up!"

And it will flyall the way up into the sky?

Do you have confidence?


Then it will!


Up, kite, up.

Up, kite, up! Up, kite, up!

-Well, would you look at that.-Yeah!

-Whoo-hoo!-It actually worked. That kite is flying!

We did it, Frog.All the way to the top of the sky.

I knew we could.It just took some confidence.

And running and shouting and jumping.

Yes, that too.

Whoa. This kite really does want to fly.

-Whoa! Toad?-[pants]

[grunts] I have you, Frog.

Gotta hand it to you, Frog and Toad.That kite sure is up there.

Even we robins can't fly that high.

Maybe you need more confidence.


Looks like your kitewants to take you both for a ride.

I do not want to fly.

I do not want to fly either.

Down, kite, down!

Maybe it can't hear you on account ofit being up there at the top of the sky.

-[both] Down, kite, down!-We'll help!

[both] Down, kite, down!

[Robin] Down, kite, down.

Should we let go?

Then our kite would fly away,and we worked so hard on it together.

Hmm, that is true.

Shout again?

[all] Down, kite, down! Down, kite, down!

Hey, what's all the-- [gasps] Oh.

That's quite the catch you've got there,Frog and Toad. Need a hand?

If not too much trouble, Gopher.

Why, it's no trouble at all.

[strains] Oh-- Whoa!

[all] Down, kite, down!

Down, kite, down!

[robins] Down, kite, down!

This is actually kind of fun,don't you think?

Like a stroll through the countryside,without the strolling part.

I would prefer my feet on the ground,where they belong.

Oh, well, there's Turtle.Maybe she can help.

[all] Down, kite, down!

Down, kite, down!

Turtle, grab ahold of us,and see if you can pull us down.

This kite is not listening.

[all] Whoa!

-Frog.-Yes, Toad?

This kite has a lot of confidence.

It certainly does.

Too much confidence.

Mercy me, what is this?

Hello, Mink. We're flying our kite.

Looks like the kite is flying you.Let me give you a hand.


Come on, folks, grab ahold!

-[robins cheering]-[Toad, Mink] Yeah!

Now that's what I call teamwork.

Thank you, everyone.

[wind gusting]

[all] Aw!

I liked it better when it wasjust the two of us flying this kite.

Toad, I do not believethis kite is going to come down.

Maybe it wants to go on its own adventure.Without us.

Should we let go?

I think we should.

-Hello, everyone.-[music stops]

We are letting go now.

[all] Aw.

We're all havin' a mighty fine time, Frog.

-Can we stay on? Just a few minutes more.-[beetles] Yeah!


Sorry, everyone, but Toad says "blah."

I need you all to let goon the count of three.

One. Two. Three!

[all grunt]


Flying our kite took a lot of work.

And a lot of confidence.

Mm-hmm. But it was also fun.

True. But only a little bit of fun.

This is much better.

Our kite is listening to us now.

Do you think our kite is flyingall the way to the top of the sky?

Yes. I think it is.


What is it, Toad?

I am not sure.

Something is strange.

Something feels not quite right.

Oh, no. Is your jacket scratchy?

Hmm. No, my jacket is not scratchy.

Do you have a cramp in your toe?Or an ache in your belly?

No, my toes and belly are fine.

But something feels off.

How very strange.

Maybe if we walk in the woods a bit more,we will know what is wrong.

Wait. That is it.

This is not our normal path in the woods.

This is a different path.


Frog, are we lost today?

Hmm. We could be lost.But we should look around to be sure.

Is that tree normally on our path?


Those flowers?


Or that funny-looking rock?


No, no and no! Nothing looks right at all.

Hmm. Maybe we are looking atthe wrong side of everything.

Hmm. You might be right.

We could try walking the other way.


Oh. None of these trees or flowerslook right either.

Especially not that stump.


I know.

Let's try walking away from this spotto see what we can find.








Oh, this is not working.We are right back where we started.

Yes. You were right, Toad.We must be lost today.

[breathes deeply]

What are you doing?

I am remaining calm.

Staying calm and thinking clearlyis important if you are lost.

[breathing deeply]

Are you calm, Toad?

No, I am not calm.

How can I be calm?We are lost in the woods!

Hello? We are lost!

Oh, what to do, what to do.

[Robin] Hello?

-[gasps] Robin! Over here.-[gasps, laughs] All right!

Hiya, Frog. Hiya, Toad.

I heard you all the wayfrom the tops of the trees.

What's going on?

Robin, we are lost.

Oh, I see. Hmm.

Well, good luck.

Wait, Robin, come back!


Toad, remember to stay calm.

We are lost!

-[echoes]-[birds chirping]

[panting, croaking]

We could wander around for hours.

We could be lost forever.

We could miss lunch. [groans]

You are definitely not calm.

-[gasps]-Well, hello there.

Oh, hello, Gopher.

What's the news?

-We are lost.-Hmm.

Ah, do you not know where you are,or not know where you're going?

That is a very good question.


[clears throat] Excuse me.

Oh, did you decide which it is?

[stammers] Uh, no. But--

Well, when you think of it, let me know.

-Have a nice day!-[stammers]

Bye, Gopher.

Oh. We are lost. Lost!

What will we do?

Well, I suppose we will just have tomake the best of it.

The best of it?What could be good about being lost?

Come now, Toad. It is not that bad.I am here with you.


I know. We will be explorers.


Yes! We will explore this placeand see all sorts of unusual things.

I do not know.

I prefer things the usual way.

Maybe you will enjoy the unusual way too.

Come on. Will you try it with me?

[groans] Very well.

We will be explorers together.

Look, Toad.


Oh, do you think they are safe to eat?

Excellent question, Toad.It is important to always ask.

In this case,I am certain these blueberries are safe.

But I am not certain if they are sweet,so I will test one.

How is it?

Very good. [swallows]

I'd better have another bite,just to be sure.

Mmm. Mm-hmm.

-That does look good.-Mmm. Mm-hmm. Mmm.


Exploring this blueberry bushis not so bad.

-Mmm.-Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

Oh, my. I am very sticky.

Me too. Isn't it wonderful?

Not really. How do we wash it off?

Aha. This way, Toad!

[water running]

A babbling brook!

How does the water feel?

Why don't you try it for yourself?


Cool, but not cold.

I suppose exploring this brookis not so bad either.

Feeling better, Toad?

[yawns] I think so.

But eating those blueberrieshas made me sleepy.

Is there somewhere we could rest?

Hmm. How about there?


Mmm. This is my kind of exploring.

[gasps] Huh?

Toad, wake up!

Huh? What is it?


A maple seed!

Look how it spins through the air.






[inhales deeply, blows]

Well, Toad, are you having fun?

Yes. I had no idea that being lost--

Uh-uh-uh. Exploring.

[stammers] That exploring could leadto such a pleasant afternoon.

Yes. That is what is niceabout being an explorer.

You discover so many new things.

I suppose I might like to explore with youa little while longer.

Come on! We will see what else there is.

[inhales deeply] Mmm.

Thank you, Frog, for exploring so manywonderful new things with me today.

Aw. You are welcome.

We really did make the best of it.

Mmm. Yes, we did.

[stomach growls]

Are you getting hungry?

Hmm. I am.

And darkness is falling all around us.It will be night soon, Frog.

Do not worry, Toad.

Perhaps now is a good timeto find our way home?

Yes, I think so.

-Hi again.-Hi, Gopher.

So, did you figure outif you don't know where you are,

or don't know where you're going?

Where we are is with each other.

And where we are going…

That way.

[chuckles] That's a good answer.

Toad, look. This way?

I hope so.



Home again.


The nice thing about being lostis you can do it so close to home.

Well, Toad, what did you think?

Should we do this again tomorrow?

Oh, I am not sure I want toget lost again tomorrow.

But I did have a lovely daywith you, Frog.

Me too.

I suppose you are never truly lostwhen you are with a friend.
