[Ben] Every year,
my school holds a big fun run.
And I do okay. Well, mediocre, um,
average, I mean, not so good at all,
no matter how much my mom wants me to win.
Whoo-hoo! Go, my beautiful baby boy, go!
Mom, please.
Mom wants me to be like her
when she was my age.
A long-distance running star.
So this year I've decided to win
and make her proud.
Or give it my best shot anyway.
[singing] I got to keep on walkin', hey!
Huh! I got to walk on ♪
Oh, oh ♪
That's kind of your whole problem.
What is?
It ain't called a "fun run" for nothing.
You're supposed to run, bro.
So where's the fun part?
[scoffs] Mickey takes winning
way too seriously to have any fun.
Know what you need, Benny?
A training buddy.
Someone with all the moves,
who can show you how to win.
Someone like me.
Thanks, Mickey. That'd be great.
No, I said "like me."
I'm not going to show you
all my training secrets.
Well, I can train with you, if you want.
Huh? But you said you
was gonna be my training buddy.
So? I can train with both of you.
[grunts] Come on, Benny.
Let's start by running home,
then over to the museum.
Twenty five miles from home, girl ♪
My feet are hurting mighty bad ♪
Now I've been walking for three days
And two lonely nights ♪
As if.
You know that I'm mighty mad
Huh! ♪
Huh? What are you doing, Ella?
I'm goin' in the run fun.
I wanna be as fast as Mama.
-Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪
-I'm so tired ♪
But I just can't lose my stride ♪
-Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah ♪
-Hey, I said I'm so tired ♪
[Ella] Yes!
[both] Yay!
[Ben groans]
Wow! That was an odyssey, um,
journey, um, really, really far.
Must have been, like, 25 miles?
Well, not quite.
[sighs] Fifteen? Ten?
It had to be at least five.
One mile. Well, almost.
Oh, boy, I need help.
Uncle Rod!
Yep, yep. My patented robo-legs
are the perfect training tool, Benny,
long as you keep a close eye on 'em.
[robot whirring]
[robot] Robo-legs will take over world.
Okay, maybe not.
Let's try these jet boots instead.
Uh, is there any reason
why they're, like, melted like that?
Hmm, maybe they're a little too fast.
Ooh, ooh, wait!
I've got just the thing.
My next-generation treadmill
is way ahead of the curve.
How'd you get in there, cat?
Shoo! Shoo! Shoo!
Get outta here! Go!
-[Harmony] Meow!
-[machine whirs]
[Ben panting]
Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!
I'll be right back, kids.
I've got one ornery treadmill
to bring it on in!
[Ben groaning]
Okay, Ange,
ready for some real training?
[Ben groans]
Just keep doing what you're doing, Benny.
You'll do fine.
He will?
Of course not,
I'm just trying to keep him motivated.
I need help, Harmony.
And I think I know where to get it.
ABC, easy as one, two, three!
-Hello? Dancing Ma Whoa!
-Benja-matic! Ha ha!
What's happening?
Uh, well, um, we've got this
school fun run coming up
and, uh, I really want to win, for my mom.
Awesome! I love running.
And funning. Mostly the funning part.
So can you be my training partner?
Ready to work it!
Come on, feet. Don't fail me now.
[singing] I got to keep on walking
Hey, huh! ♪
I got to walk on
Ho, oh, oh ♪

How'd you get so good?
[crowd cheering]
Everyone on the starting line, please.
Come on.
Come on! What are we waiting for?
I wanna win, now.
Okay, who are you and what have you
done with my friend, Ben?
It's still me, Angie. I'm just,
you know, ready to nail that trophy.
Seriously, bro, who are you?
Okay, okay, settle down, kids!
On your marks
Get set Go!
[air horn blows]
Coming through, Benny.
Nice try, Benjamin.
I love you, Mommy!
[panting] I guess it's not my day.
I mean, year.
ABC, one, two, three!
[crowd cheering]
Ella's winning?
Oh, it'd be so, so easy.
But, this feels wrong.
You're going the wrong way, bro!
Sis, you okay?
I was gonna win, Benji.
I know. You were doing great,
but now we can finish together, okay?
[crowd cheering]
I won? But I didn't even mean to.
Huh? How did you How did you do that?
Ha! I guess,
training with both of you didn't hurt.
[crowd cheering]
Come on, Benny. You're doing great, Ella.
Go, my beautiful kids, go!
Sorry, Ella, no trophy this year.
That's okay. Thanks, Benji.
That was amazing, Benny.
But I came in last.

that makes me prouder
than any trophy or prize, or anything!
