And, um
And, uh
Sorry, Harmony, no time to talk.
It's Grandpa Day!
Once a month, Grandpa Marvin and I
are gonna do cool stuff together.
I gotta take everything
that's required, like
Master Piece!
If there's one thing Grandpa knows,
it's how to have
Well, well, well.
If it ain't Benny-Ben-Ben, not quite ten!
[both laugh]
Um, I'm actually
I'm not even nine yet, Grandpa.
Ooh, whoa!
Are you okay?
I mean, to do Grandpa Day?
Oh, uh [stutters] That today?
I'm sorry, Ben-Ben,
I gotta take a rain check.
You don't wanna go?
Oh, it's not that
he doesn't want to go, Benny Pie.
It's just that your gramps
is feeling kinda sad.
Why is he so sad, Grandma?
[Ruby sighs] Well, baby,
sometimes he gets to thinking
about the old days
and just how magical Motown used to be,
and, well, it
It gives him the blues ♪
Well, I sure wish
I could take away his blues.
I bet you could, Benny,
if you just put your mind to it.
You know I believe in you.
[Marvin] Huh! Sammy's Junkyard.
Why did you bring me here, Ben-Ben,
to this old dump?
Mmm, well,
I thought it might cheer you up.
I mean, you're always saying
how much you love these old cars.
Mmm, I guess you're right.
I used to work at the factory
that made all these beauties, you know.
They were like magic, let me tell you.
Man, what I'd give to drive
one of those babies again,
just one last time.
But that's never gonna happen.
Look at 'em. Nothing but old, rusty heaps.
Like me. [sighs]
[sighs] I'm guessing this didn't
make you feel better, did it, Gramps?
I'm sorry, Ben-Ben,
but I just can't see the magic anymore.
[engine revs]
A, B, C, easy as one, two, three! ♪
Whoa! [grunts]
Whoo-hoo! [laughs]
I'm new again! [laughs]
You must be
Jimmy Mack!
Motown's classic dream machine.
And you are?
I'm Ben, the guy who repainted
Uh, I mean, made you all new again.
[chuckles] Well, you did a great job.
And check out all my crazy mods!
Hey, Jimmy,
my grandpa's feeling kinda down,
and I was hoping
you could do me a big favor.
Sorry, Ben.
You know, there's no time.
There's something really important
I've gotta do in my own world.
Really sorry. See ya!
But I need your help! Jimmy!
Jimmy Mack!
Are you coming back?
Hey, Jimmy, Jimmy ♪
Oh, Jimmy Mack
When are you comin' back? ♪
Jimmy, Jimmy ♪
Oh, Jimmy Mack
You better hurry back ♪

Thanks for the ride, Dancing Machine.
Cool beans, Benja-matic!
Now, what's this freaky-deaky automobile
look like?
Uh, well, he's a convertible, and
he's real fast.
Yeah? But so is this
far out funkadelic robot.
Hold on!
Hey, Jimmy!
-Huh? Argh!
Won't you come back
to the junkyard with me?
[chuckles] Okay, here's the deal-o.
I'll come back with you,
but you gotta catch me first.
Jimmy, Jimmy ♪
Oh, Jimmy Mack
When are you coming back? ♪
Jimmy, Jimmy ♪
Oh, Jimmy Mack

-[metal clanks]
-[continues screaming]
-[Jimmy] Whoo-hoo!
Gotcha! Can we go back
to the junkyard now, Jimmy?
[chuckles] Okay, you got me.
Tell you what, Ben,
if you scratch my bumper,
I'll scratch yours. Deal?
Okay, so, let me show you
what that important thing is I gotta do.
[tires screeching]
Okay! We're here.
It's just an old car.
Not just any old car.
This is a James B. Mackey 500.
Whoa, he looks a bit like, um, you.
That's 'cause he was my first model.
So, he's like your grandpa?
I guess. Uh
I love this old guy,
but he really needs me to fix him up.
[sighs] Yeah, I get that.
I love my old guy, too.
Anyway, nice meeting ya,
but I got serious work to do.
[chuckles] So
Oops! That's not a wrench!
So, you won't come back
to the junkyard with me?
Sorry, Benny.
Um, I'm kind of busy right now.
Uh, let's see. Uh
Ben, this is getting embarrassing!
I know I got one in here somewhere.
Hey, looks like you could use a hand, huh?
Or even two hands!
Guess I could do with a little help.
[metal creaking]
What? [coughs]
Is nap time over?
Where am I, anyhoo?
You're all fixed up, James B.!
Thanks to my new pal, Ben.
[engine revs and sputters]
I got my horseless carriage
power back again.
Watch me burn rubber!
[engine sputtering]
So when does he hit top speed?
[laughs] That is his top speed!
I'm back, baby!
Look at me [coughs] go.
[chuckles] I guess I owe you one, huh?
[whispering] Remember,
act like a regular car.
[car honks]
Uh [stammers] I don't believe it.
It's an old Jimmy Mack!
But somebody really, really fixed it up.
Maybe people remember the magic
better than you thought, Grandpa?
Ah, maybe.
Just wish I could take it for a drive.
Sure you can. He won't mind.
"He"? He who?
Uh I mean, uh
the owner's a good friend of mine?
This thing is magic! [chuckles]
