Ruffus The Dog – Little Bo Peep

Ruffus The Dog – Little Bo Peep

Сегодня Матушка Гусыня приготовила для своих читателей стихотворение, у которого (точнее, у персонажа которого) очень долгая и интересная история. Главная героиня – Маленькая Бо-пип – пастушка, которая постоянно теряет своих овец, за которыми должна присматривать. Даже у Шекспира («Король Лир») есть упоминание об этой легкомысленной, но милой особе.

Однако в Суссексе (графство в Англии) считается, что имя героини пришло из города Сент-Леонард. Одна из башен этого города, в простонародье называемая «Бо Пип», использовалась в качестве приюта для таможенников, а также как место заключения для контрабандистов. Поэтому некоторые считают, что в песнях и стихотворениях про пастушку заключен более глубокий смысл, чем кажется на первый взгляд. Маленькая Бо-пип, по мнению исследователей, это собирательный образ всех таможенников, овцы – контрабандисты, а их хвостики – товар, который они пытались перевезти через границу. Предполагают, что эти хвостики сильно отдают бренди и ромом! ;)

Ну что ж, а теперь прочитаем само стихотворение:

Little Bo-peep has lost her sheep,
And can’t tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home,
And bring their tails behind them.

Little Bo-peep fell fast asleep,
And dreamt she heard them bleating;
But when she awoke, she found it a joke,
For they were still all fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,
Determined for to find them;
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,
For they’d left their tails behind them.

It happened one day, as Bo-peep did stray
Into a meadow hard by,
There she espied their tails side by side,
All hung on a tree to dry.

She heaved a sigh, and wiped her eye,
And over the hillocks went rambling,
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should,
To tack again each to its lambkin.

В переводе В. Лунина это стихотворение звучит так:

Ах, дело не шутка, ведь наша малютка
Бо-пип потеряла овечек.
Пускай попасутся и — сами вернутся,
И хвостики с ними, конечно.
Бо-пип задремала и тут услыхала,
Как рядом топочут копытца.
Проснулась — и что же? Ничуть не похоже:
Никто и не думал явиться.

Взяла посошок, и пошла на лужок,
И твердо решила найти их.
И впрямь углядела, но — страшное дело!
Ведь хвостиков нет позади них.
Давно это было, и долго бродила
Бо-пип, и — скажите на милость! —
За рощей кленовой на ветке дубовой
Висели хвосты и сушились.
Она задрожала, она побежала —
Трепещет и бьется сердечко! —
Чтоб дело уладить, чтоб снова приладить
По хвостику каждой овечке.

Bo Peep is a supporting character in the Disney•Pixar Toy Story series and the deuteragonist of the fourth film. She is a porcelain shepherdess figurine and Sheriff Woody’s girlfriend in the films. Bo Peep and her sheep were originally adornments of Molly Davis’s bedside lamp.


She is inspired by the character of the classic children’s nursery rhyme Little Bo-Peep. Bo is sometimes considered to be «Andy’s toy» because Andy likes to make her the damsel in distress of his plays. Bo is the romantic interest (later girlfriend) of Woody, providing a calm and loving comfort whenever he is overwhelmed. She is noted for using her shepherdess crook to hook her cowboy and bring him closer in a romantic way. In private, she is a great deal more daring with her words and actions, which Woody seems to be quite fond of. In Toy Story 4, her origins are slightly explained by Woody to Giggle McDimples. She and her sheep were bought along with the lamp not too long after Molly was born, due to the baby being scared of the dark, which «broke every toy’s heart», according to Woody. The lamp comforted Molly and she would often have her hand lay on Bo’s feet.


Bo Peep is a very romantic and levelheaded toy. She has strong feelings for Woody, which causes her (along with Slinky) to give him the benefit of the doubt when he allegedly murders Buzz Lightyear, whom she clearly considers attractive as well, and consistently whispers to the wall her worries about where Woody could be. Despite this, she still behaves like a free spirit. She only believes what she has witnessed for herself, such as when she looks into Lenny’s visor and sees Buzz riding behind Woody aboard RC, while the rest of the toys immediately take her word for it. By the time she is moved to Molly’s room, she becomes more of a leader amongst her toys as she is described by Woody to be the most capable of easing Molly’s cries at night which often caused great dismay to everyone.

Since she parted ways with Andy, Bo has taken on a different point of view in life. As a lost toy, she never worries about being loved by a child and is open to see the world.

Originally, Woody’s girlfriend in the first Toy Story was supposed to be a Barbie doll instead of Bo Peep, but Mattel refused to license the character to Disney. However, after the success of Toy Story (and boost in sales for Mr. Potato Head and other featured toys), Mattel gave Disney permission to have Barbie dolls in Toy Story 2, 3 and 4.

In the infamous Black Friday reel, Bo was actually the first to accuse Woody of deliberately throwing Buzz out of the window, and also participates in having Woody being thrown off the bed (and later, thanks to Slinky, out of the window). She might have felt terrible for her actions after they found out that Woody was gone. In addition, she sounded slightly different in this version, sporting a Southern Belle accent provided by Kath Soucie.

Bo Peep’s shrinking role in the series after the first film is explained in The Art of Toy Story 3. Bo Peep was among the main cast of the first film as a voice of female reason and was not Andy’s toy, but part of a porcelain lamp in Molly’s bedroom. When traveling with the main characters, Bo could easily «shatter into a million pieces» whilst doing dangerous stunts. Due to being unable to find a believable spot in the story, Bo Peep only appears at the beginning and end of Toy Story 2. Bo Peep was ultimately written out of Toy Story 3, due to the fact Molly and Andy wouldn’t want her anymore, and emblematic of the losses the toys have had over time. She also was written out due to the belief that Andy probably wouldn’t have anything to say about her when he gives the other toys to Bonnie at the third film’s end.


Toy Story

In Toy Story, Bo Peep is introduced as Woody’s love interest. Andy has set up a stage and is portraying Bo Peep as a distressed shepherdess who is despaired when Mr. Potato Head, (One-Eyed Bart) «robs» the bank. While holding her at «gunpoint»,he tells her to be quite or her sheep (who are put on Andy’s race track) will get run over which horrifies her. Bo then calls for help and Woody soon arrives and saves the day yet again. Later, as Andy and Molly leave their bedroom, Woody tells everyone the coast is clear, causing every toy to spring to life. As Woody prepares a staff meeting, he is pulled away by Bo’s crook. She kindly thanks him for saving her flock, and offers to get someone to watch her sheep, with the intention of spending time alone with Woody. The cowboy nervously giggles in response, but Bo then reminds him that she’s «only a couple of blocks away» as she walks back to her lamp. After Buzz Lightyear arrives in Andy’s room Bo is shown to be impressed about Buzz like the other toys. Woody murmurs in jealousy to Bo that you’d think they have never seen a new toy before, but she defends them by saying that Buzz has more gadgets on him than a «Swiss army knife.» After showing off his wings, Buzz takes on Woody’s challenge that he can fly with his eyes closed. the action figure stands on the top of Andy’s headboard and leaps off, landing on a ball, bouncing off of it to land on the racetrack, goes through the loop and gets caught on the model plane hanging on the ceiling, spins in circles, and lands back where he was, all with his eyes closed. Much to Woody’s shock, the toys cheer in excitement, with Bo saying how «she just found her moving buddy».

Even after Woody is shoved to the side by Andy, who soon decorates his room with Buzz Lightyear paraphernalia and eventually writes his name on Buzz’s boot, Bo still remains faithful to Woody and tells him she knows Andy is excited about Buzz but that he will always have a special place for him. Soon, however, they hear a kid laughing maniacally outside. The gang looks out the window to find Sid Phillips, Andy’s neighbor, abusively playing with a Combat Carl toy in his backyard. After being informed by Rex that Sid tortures toys for his own pleasure, Buzz believes he should teach him a lesson. He is about to jump down from the window, but Bo restrains him with her crook, telling him to get down. After watching Sid blow up the toy, Bo says that the sooner the Davis’ move out, the better.

That evening, after Buzz is accidentally knocked out the window, Bo Peep is horrified when Mr. Potato Head blames Woody for the accident, and she tries to stop the toys from ambushing him, but they are forced to retreat when they hear Andy coming back to the room.

That night, Bo becomes shocked when she hears from Andy that Woody has gone missing and tells Slinky how she hopes Woody’s okay.

The next day, She is surprised to see Woody in Sid’s room. Bo asks Woody what is he doing there, to which Woody tells her that he’ll explain later. He then tosses the gang Christmas lights across so Buzz and Woody can shimmy to Andy’s window. But Mr. Potato Head holds the lights away from the gang, telling them that they can’t just forget about what Woody did to Buzz. Woody tells them Buzz is with him, to which Mr. Potato Head asks him to prove it. Woody then uses Buzz’s arm (which broke off after Buzz unsuccessfully tried flying) by hiding it behind the window and impersonates Buzz. But then Woody accidentally pulls Buzz’s arm into the toy’s view and Bo screams in horror. Worriedly facing the possibility that Mr. Potato Head was right about Woody, she walks away from the window trying not to think about it. The night before Moving Day, Bo watches a depressed Andy sleep while he clutches onto his cowboy hat. Bo then whispers how if only Woody could see how much Andy misses him.

Later the next day, after the toys, under the orders of Mr. Potato Head, throw Woody out of the moving truck for trying to get rid of R.C, Bo Peep was unable to do anything to stop them, but then Lenny the binoculars catches sight of Woody riding R.C with Buzz. Bo picks up Lenny and looks through his eyes to indeed see Woody, Buzz and R.C catching up to the van and Buzz’s arm fixed. Bo confirms to the gang that Woody was telling the truth, to which the now guilt-ridden toys band together to rescue them.

A few months later, it is a snowy Christmas morning and as the gang parties and listens to Mr. Potato Head karaoke, Hamm tells everyone Sarge has a view of the kids’ presents. Woody follows the gang but is once again pulled back by a bonnet-less Bo. Woody tells her there must be a better way to get his attention, but Bo nonchalantly wishes him a merry Christmas and points upward with her cane. Woody looks upon the bookshelf and notices her sheep holding mistletoe, to which a smug Bo drops her cane, grabs the cowboy, and smothers him with kisses. Soon, Woody (now covered with kiss marks across his face) sits next to Buzz on the bed and listens along with the gang as they hear Andy excitedly getting a new puppy for Christmas, shocking all of them.

Toy Story 2

In Toy Story 2, Bo Peep continues to reassure Woody that Andy cares about him. She is devastated after Al McWhiggin of Al’s Toy Barn steals Woody. When Buzz plans a rescue, Bo Peep gives Buzz a kiss (intended for Woody when Buzz finds him) and waves goodbye to Buzz and the other toys, wishing them good luck, as they leave on their mission to rescue Woody. After the toys return home, Woody shows her his arm, fixed by Andy himself, which she greatly admires. Finally, she and Woody are seen together with Buzz and Jessie as they enjoy watching Wheezy sing «You’ve Got a Friend in Me».

When Toy Story 2 came out, interviews with the various characters were posted on the official movie site. In one interview with Bo Peep, she was asked, «Are you worried about Woody’s relationship with Jessie?» She replies: «There is nothing to worry about; me and Jessie are good friends. Woody and Jessie act like brother and sister more than anything else. Now it’s not Woody, but a certain space toy who is head over heels for Jessie, but you didn’t hear that from me.»

Toy Story 3

Bo Peep only appears in the home videos Andy’s mom recorded of Andy playing with his toys. She is later mentioned by Woody and Rex during their staff meeting. As Woody mentions that the group has lost toys in the past at yard sales and spring cleanings (such as Wheezy and Etch A Sketch), Rex mentions Bo, which visibly saddens Woody.

Toy Story 4

Bo Peep returned in Toy Story 4 with a major role. In the film, it is revealed she is indeed Molly’s toy and part of a lamp, despite this detail not receiving mention in the first two films. It is also revealed exactly how Bo came to be separated from Andy’s Toys about seven years prior to the events of Toy Story 3. Nine years prior to the events of Toy Story 4 and roughly 3 years after Toy Story 2, Woody, Buzz, Jessie and Slinky rush to Molly’s room to enlist Bo to help them save RC, who is stuck in a flowing storm drain during a thunderstorm on a rainy night. She and Woody immediately come up with a rescue which they call «Operation Pull Toy». Under Bo’s command, Molly’s toy’s create a catapult and launch Jessie into the air so she can unlock the window. After locating R.C, Bo straightens Woody’s hat and he jumps out the window with Slinky’s front half. When Bo sees they can’t get close enough to reach R.C., she quickly uses the entire Barrel of Monkeys linked together and hooked onto her staff and adds them to Slinky’s line giving Woody the boost he needs. The toys quickly pull them back up, but just as they get R.C. into the bedroom, Andy’s mom comes in and closes the window before Woody can get inside. Bo, her sheep, and their lamp are placed in a box and given away to a man who takes the box to his car in the rain. When he runs back to the house for one of his forgotten possessions, Woody attempts to assist Bo and her sheep in an escape attempt- in hopes of returning them to Andy’s room; but she assures him that being taken away is part of being a toy. Bo tries to convince Woody to come with her and although Woody is tempted, hearing Andy calling his name convinces him to stay with the Toys, ultimately parting with Bo.

Since leaving the antique store, Bo has chosen to live a life of adventure in the outside world. Bo now sports a pink bow in her hair, and now wears the light blue undergarments she was previously seen wearing under her dress, along with several noticeable cosmetic injuries- indicated by the bandages on her upper right arm, left wrist, and her shepherdess crook, where the porcelain suffered numerous cracks. She spent several years living in an antique store, helping the lost toys who passed through find new homes there. She still has her shepherdess dress and bonnet, donning them in her traditionally worn manner while inside the antique store- while opting to use her dress as a cape when rescuing the lost toys.

Woody encounters Bo while on a road trip with his new toy owner, Bonnie Anderson. The encounter takes place while trying to retrieve Forky- resulting in the discovery of a rather expansive playground. After observing the numerous toys who call the playground home, Woody stumbles across one very familiar shepherdess- his long lost Bo. Bo is there with many other lost toys waiting to play with the k >[1] Bo’s new friends include Giggle McDimples, Duke Caboom, and many others, who aid Woody in retrieving Forky and returning him to his home. They rally Buzz, Duke Caboom, Ducky, and Bunny on their rescue mission, entering the antique shop in search of Forky. Gabby Gabby and her Bensons force the group to leave the antique shop without Forky once again, and Bo consequently denounces any further rescue attempts in the interest of the safety of the group.

After Woody willingly submits to the surgical removal of his voicebox, the Bensons implant the newly acquired voicebox into Gabby Gabby. Gabby, with her newfound confidence, climbs atop a nearby shelf, vying for Harmony’s attention. Woody watches as Gabby is almost instantaneously rejected by Harmony, and is tossed into a nearby basket. Woody refuses to leave after witnessing this turn of events, eventually convincing Gabby to leave the shop with himself and the rest of the toys. Bo, Duke, Ducky, and Bunny eventually regroup with Woody, Forky, and Gabby at the antique shop, and the group collectively departs the shop to return to Bonnie’s RV. The toys climb atop the nearby carnival’s ferris wheel, and with Bo’s encouragement and Duke’s riding skills, the group continues toward the agreed rallying location. Gabby eventually decides to join the side of a lost child at the carnival, marking her departure from the Toys, setting off on her newfound life as a child’s toy.

The rest of the group meets with Buzz after he successfully pilots Bonnie’s RV to the carousel, where the Toys exchange bittersweet farewells. Ducky, Bunny, and Duke Caboom say goodbye to Woody as he approaches the RV to return to Bonnie and the Toys. But after Buzz advises Woody to follow his heart, Woody decides he cannot leave Bo once again. Woody sprints back to Bo, and the two tightly embrace each other. The other toys come out and Jessie gives Bo a big hug. Before Woody leaves for good, he turns to Jessie, affixing his Sheriff’s badge to her vest, effectively crowning her as the new guardian and leader of the Toys. The group hugs Woody goodbye and then bids a final farewell to Bo and Woody.

As the other toys pull away in Bonnie’s RV, Woody admires his new life as a free toy. The camera pans out as Bo and her newly reunited deputy direct their gaze over the ever expansive world they now share as home.

Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And can`t tell where to find them
Leave them alone
And they’ll come home
And bringing their tails behind them

Little Bo peep fell fast asleep
And dreamt she heard them bleating,
When she awoke, she found it a joke
For they were all still a fleeting

Then up she took a little crook
Determined for to find them.
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed
For they`d left their tails behind them

It happened one day, as Boo Peep did stray
Into a meadow hard by
There she espied their tails side by side
All hung on a tree to dry

She heaved a sigh, and wiped her eye
And over the hillocks went rambling
And tried what she could
As a shepherdess should
To tack again each to its lambkin

Let’s listen to the nursery rhyme (and exciting story) Little Bo Peep!

Little Bo Peep


Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home
Bringing their tails behind them

Little Bo Peep fell fast asleep
And dreamt she heard them bleating
But when she awoke, she found it a joke
For they were still a-fleeting

Then up she took her little crook
Determined for to find them
She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed
For they’d left their tales behind them

It happened one day, as Bo Peep did stray
Into a meadow hard by
There she espied their tales side by side
All hung on a tree to dry

She heaved a sigh and wiped her eye
And over the hillocks went rambling
And tried what she could, as a shepherdess should
To tack each again to its lambkin

Alternate first verse:
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And can’t tell where to find them
Leave them alone, and they’ll come home
Wagging their tails behind them

Hang my head in shame.

I oughta keep tryin’
‘Til something goes my way,
And if you come back here I’ll say:

And if you come back here I’ll say:
«I’m gonna keep tryin’
‘Til something goes my way»
And you come back here please say:
