Here's how our story begins in The Magic of Friendship.
Scene showing Jiminy Cricket singing On the Front Porch.
- Jiminy Cricket: Three creeky wooden stairs
Those squeeky rocking chairs
The well-worn welcome mat
The happy times
All I wanna do
When the day is through
Is linger here
On the front porch with you
From the wicker swing
While the night birds sing
We'll watch the fireflies sparkin'
Do some sparkin' too
How the hours fly
As the moon drifts by
How sweet the air
As we stare
At the sky
Oh how I love to
Linger here like this
Hold your hand
And steal a kiss or two
On the front porch with you
After his song.
Jiminy Cricket: Pretty, Huh? I'll bet you folks give everything in your whole life making new friends, Do ya? Well I do too, Despite that I'm a Cricket I'm being a smart Conscience, Let me tell you a story about what changed my life.

There was Spike carrying a stake of books, I had to fallow him and where he's taking them.
