Storyboard Text

  • Kate was born unbelievably strong.  After the doctor weighed her, she weighed him. After that the nickname "Might Kate" stuck like paper to glue.
  • Growing up, Mighty Kate impressed her family and neighbors with her mighty strength. If a boulder was in her way while she was walking through the woods, she always picked up the rock and tossed it to the side.
  • One night, a powerful storm stuck outside. The wind and rain raged so hard that homes shook in fear, trees ran for their lives! From her bedroom window, Mighty Kate saw a train crossing Creek Bridge. Suddenly, there was a thunderous crash.
  • Mighty Kate ran outside to see what had happened. The bridge had fallen in to the creek. So had the train! Kate grabbed a vine on a nearby plant and slid down to the crash site.  She found to rail road workers trapped under a pile of twisted rails. With one push of her arm, she swept away the mess. She yanked each man up with one hand and ascended the vine back up with the other hand.
  • I reckon' y'all be guessing Mighty Kate was done with her heroic deeds for the night. But you'd be wrong. She knew the 10:30 local train would soon be rolling through the area. She had to tell workers at the nearest railroad station to hold the train. But the station was an hour away on foot!
  • Mighty Kate ran straight to the station. When she got there, the passenger train had already left. Kate raced after it along the tracks but couldn't catch up. Then she got an idea. She whistled loudly-so loudly the the engineer heard it and stopped the train. Kate ran up and told him how Creek Bridge was out. The engineer hugged and thanked the brave girl who had saved the day!
