[Ben chuckles] Whoo!
Get ready, Benny.
This is gonna rock your world.
Wow! That is the most astounding
Astonishing Amazing thing
I've ever almost seen.
[Dancing Machine] Too bad you can't see
with all the cloud cover.
Yeah, if I hadn't almost seen it
with my own eyes,
I wouldn't have thought
it was really, uh, real.
Once I shoo off those clouds,
you'll see how real it really is.
Just gotta find the right tool.
[grunts] Nope, nope.
Oh, okay, close. No. Okay.
[Dancing Machine] Whoa, there, Jimmy!
Keep your eye on the sky.
[all] Whoa!
[all grunting]
Rough landing. Anything broken?
Uh, Jimmy?
[chuckling] Looks like I have to make
a pit stop. Sorry, Ben.
It's okay, Jimmy. I gotta head back
and finish my homework
before school starts.
Come back soon now!
Don't worry.
Nothing's gonna keep me away.
-Oh, oh. Sorry, Harmony.
[gasps] Uh-oh, I'm gonna be late.
Okay, children, your homework
was to draw your favorite place in Motown,
and we are very lucky to have
the director of the Motown Museum,
a local history expert,
here to see what you came up with.
[panting] Oh!
Oh, uh, sorry I'm late, Ms. Hernandez.
Best entrance ever.
Okay, who'd like to show their work first?
Uh Oh, Mickey.
It's the basketball court,
and that right there is me. [chuckles]
Excellent choice of subject, soldier.
But I have some doubts
that is, in fact, you.
[Mickey whimpers]
My house is the best house in Motown,
and that is a fact.
An extremely accurate depiction.
Outstanding work, soldier.
Um, let me see. Oh.
Ben, care to share your drawing?
Oh, um, sure, Ms. Hernandez.
[Ben panting]
[students laughing] Ooh!
Hmm. Son, the assignment was clear,
draw your favorite place in Motown.
But, um, this is my favorite place.
Your favorite real place, soldier.
Not some flibberty-flobberty fantasy land.
But it is real, Ms. Hernandez.
It's a wonderful drawing.
A little imagination,
I mean, never hurt, right?
Facts are facts, children.
And fantasy is fantasy.
Your father works for me
at the museum, correct?
Um, yes, sir.
Well, then I think we all need
to have a little talk after class.
[Bill] Whoa!
So sorry I'm late, sir.
Is there a problem at the museum?
No, Love, something more serious.
Ben's assignment was to draw
his favorite spot in Motown.
Oh, wow! That looks great, Ben.
A real place in Motown.
Oh, of course, uh, sir.
A real place.
It is real.
There's a time and a place
for daydreaming. At night, in bed.
Your son is clearly
letting his imagination run away with him.
Um, sir, it's just a drawing.
-But I see what you mean, sir.
Let me just have a little talk
with Ben, one-on-one.
I liked your drawing a lot, Ben.
Imagination is a special thing.
Dad, if you could see something
with your very own eyes,
you'd believe it was real, right?
Why sure, Ben. If I saw it
with my very own eyes, I'd have to.
Then stand by to be mystified and magicked
into another world.
ABC, easy as one, two, three.
Uh, huh?
ABC, easy as one, two, three.
I'm guessing
something's supposed to happen
right about now, huh, Benny?
It's always worked before.
You'll see, Dad.
ABC, easy as one, two, three.
Everything okay, Ben?
Something's gone wrong. It's not
[sighs] It's just not working anymore.
I'm really sorry, Ben.
Benji! Benji! I'm going for a ride
on my dragon. Hop on.
[sighs] I'm not in the mood
for a dragon ride right now, Ella.
[Ella] Roar!
-Whoa, Ella!
Wait for Dad. Ella!
They're not imaginary, Harmony.
They're real.
All my friends are real.
At least, I thought they were.
[sighs] easy as one, two, three.
What if it really was just my imagination?
It was just my imagination ♪
Running away with me ♪
Tell you it was just my imagination ♪
Oh, running away with me ♪
Tell you it was just my imagination ♪
Running away with me ♪
Oh. Well, who's this
with the weight of the world
on his little shoulders?
I'm in trouble, Grandma Ruby,
for letting my imagination
run away with me.
[chuckles] Well, is that right?
Why, my imagination's been running away
with me for as long as I can remember.
It has?
Oh. Sweetheart, the most important thing
about imagination,
you gotta believe.
-Even if I'm the only one?
Now, since when you been
the only one, huh?
-[gasps] That's it, Harmony.
I'm not the only one.
Of course I'm not.
[Angie] What'd you want to show us, Ben?
Um, I wanted to ask you guys something.
That wasn't, uh, all in my head, right?
Like you saw everything, too.
It was real, right?
What are you talking about, bro?
Whoa, Benny!
Just who I was lookin' for.
I'm trying to perfect my latest invention.
A self-driving hoverbed
that travels while you sleep.
Wow, that's great, Uncle Rod, but
But I have one teensy-weensy problem.
And to fix it, I need someone
with a big imagination.
Um, guess we'll have to talk later?
All righty!
What I need is more upward thrust
'cause if a hoverbed can't hover
It's just a mattress
in the middle of the road.
I knew you were the Ben for the job.
All we gotta do now
is blow the clouds away,
so we can see the problem nice and clear.
Oh. Uh, I know someone who's been having
the exact same problem.
Yeah? Will you mind checking in to see
if they came up with an answer?
It's like Grandma Ruby says,
you just have to believe.
easy as one, two, three.
All I've gotta do is believe.
-Great to see you, my friend.
[Ben] I missed you guys.
For a moment, I even thought
I'd never see you again.
Huh? That's inconceivable.
So, Jimmy, did you ever
find something to blow away the clouds?
[chuckles] Negative, Benny.
Still looking.
Well, when you do,
I know it's gonna be fantastic.
Fantastic? Fantastic?
Oh, yeah, a fan would be fantastic.
[chuckles] These clouds
won't stand a chance.
[Skywriter] Oh, not only the clouds!
There she blows, Benny.
Wow, that is even more awesome
than I could have ever imagined.
I always believed in you, Jimmy,
and I'm gonna make a sketch of your fans
for a certain uncle of mine.
Oh, oh, oh, are you telling me
my fans have a fan? [chuckles]
How'd you do it, Benny Boy?
Just used my imagination.
Ha-ha! Well, you ready
to take your imagination for a spin?
[both laughing]
That's my boy.
-[chuckling] Uncle Rod, turn!
[all screaming]
[all gasp]
I said there's a time and place
for daydreamin'
and, well, you found it, soldier.
That's a fact.
