"Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel" prove that, although getting older and perhaps dated, they are still useful. A rowdy, ravenous New York City garbage truck declares, "Know what I do at night while you're asleep? I Eat your TRASH." Consuming everything from a to z, at the end of the day he can boast, "I Stink!" Mr. Gilly is a trash collector who drives a big blue truck from the school, to the park and the pizza parlor. At every stop, he picks up the trash, and transforms "Trashy Town" into a tidy town. "Dot the Fire Dog" sleeps by the firefighters' big rubber boots, suits up to answer an alarm, and rescues a tiny kitten. It is a good day for the firefighters, the firehouse, and Dot. One trash day, a young boy leaves his tricycle to play with a kite he retrieves from a trashcan. The trash men pick up the tricycle, which becomes "The Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle" as it escapes crushing, eludes capture, and makes its way back to the boy
