Five, four, three, two, one...
Mali the astronaut is going to space.
Woosh! Zoom! Zoom!
Erm...hello. Mali to...
Mali to Command Station.
Mission Control. Mali to Mission Control.
The hero has landed on the moon!
There are no aliens, but it smells like macaroni cheese!
The moon was shaking, Command Centre.
You guys need to think about finishing up soon.
It's nearly time for dinner, and Ian will be over in a minute.
Mali, are you OK?
Let me check your heart rate.
All clear, Mr Astronaut, you can continue being an astronaut.
Ah, I see you guys are all ready for Dress as a Hero Day
-at school tomorrow.
Careful, you don't want to ruin your outfits.
"Roger that" is astronaut language for "yes".
Wow, Mali, you are really getting into character.
I think you make a great Tim Peake.
Who's Tim Peake?
Tim Peake is one of the first British astronauts,
and he's my grandma's favourite.
Well remembered, Mali.
Aren't you going to ask who I am?
Of course. Ahem...
I'm glad you asked. I'm Mary Seacole.
-She was a nurse from Jamaica
and she set up a hospital in England all by herself,
and she saved thousands of lives during the Crimean War.
Oh, let me get that.
Mary Seacole sounds awesome!
She WAS awesome.
-Hey, Patience. Is the young lady ready?
Wow, what a great Florence Nightingale!
I'm Mary Seacole.
And I'm Tim Peake.
Well, they're both great choices.
-Bella, what are you?
We haven't decided on a costume.
-Can I be Snow White?
Well, Snow White's from a fairy tale.
-She's not a real person.
-Right, dinner's ready.
Sam and Mali, make sure that you're changed out of those costumes now.
-Come on, Mali.
-That's what I said!
Come on, then, let's get you home so we can decide on a costume.
See you later, guys.
Mali, I said I'd drop you home too.
-Mmm, something smells delicious!
No dinner for you, Kobi.
-We had a deal -
if I cooked dinner tonight and helped the kids with their costumes,
you said you would do the laundry.
Oh, of course.
My bad. Yeah, I forgot.
Don't worry, I'll do it straightaway.
Kobes, I think this belongs to you.
See you in the morning, everyone.
Who cut a hole in my bucket?!
Sorry. Got a bit carried away.
What's the matter, Bella?
Everyone has a costume but me.
Well, it's never too late.
Tomorrow is the most exciting day of the year.
Mali, Sam and all my friends have great costumes.
I want to wear something special.
Something everyone will remember.
I could be anything. A mermaid.
Remember, you have to dress up as one of your heroes.
Oh, yeah. I'm stuck again.
This reminds me of when I was young and I lost my football kit
just before the most important match of my life.
-What did you do?
-Still went out and played.
Dad! I'm not wearing my pyjamas to school.
Why does everyone keep saying "Roger"?
Come on, upstairs.
-We've got some quick hero thinking to do.
BANGING ON DOOR
Hello! Anyone in?
Hey, Sam! Sam!
Hello, Mali, Grandma Zainab.
Hello, Sam. How are you?
Come in, come on through!
It's the superheroes!
Mali's been so excited about today, he hardly slept last night.
Oh, I know, Zainab, Sam's been exactly the same.
But we couldn't find his costume anywhere.
-I think he must have left it here last night.
-Oh, no! Our costumes!
They've been shrunken.
But how did that happen?
Where did you leave them after you changed out of them last night?
I don't remember.
I think we left them on the floor.
Where they must have been scooped up
and mixed in with my laundry pile of old oily rags.
Then the high heat from the tumble-dryer must have shrunk them.
And mine is disintegrated.
Well, do you know what?
There's a good lesson to be learned there, guys -
don't leave your clothes lying on the floor.
Hmm. That's right, Kobi,
don't leave your clothes lying around on the floor.
Uh... Ooh. I must have made the same mistake myself.
-But what do we now?!
Rise and shine, Bella! We finally have a costume for you.
-What is it?
-Well, you know how much you love painting?
There was a painter called Leonardo da Vinci
and he painted a very famous picture called the Mona Lisa.
Well, I thought you could go as the Mona Lisa painting.
Look, I've got you a wig, look.
And a frame.
-It's not right, is it?
It seemed like such a great idea when I thought of it last night.
I'm never going to have a costume for school!
Right, does anyone have any ideas?
It's too late now.
You know, I think Bella could be right.
If I'm going to get them to school on time,
-we're going to have to leave pretty soon.
-No, it's never too late!
You just have to think of some alternatives.
I've been thinking of alternatives for about a week.
Some of my favourite heroes are...
A brave, courageous young lady,
who was one of the first Native Americans to visit Britain.
Or Mahatma Gandhi.
He peacefully fought for India's freedom
and inspired millions with his philosophy of love and kindness.
Or what about Amy Johnson?
She was a bold and adventurous female pilot.
She pushed the boundaries for what women could achieve in the 1920s.
In fact, she was the first woman to fly across the world,
from Britain to Australia.
-You know, those are some really good heroes.
Great ideas, but where will we get the costumes in such little time?
We can do this. What is a hero, anyway?
A hero is someone who cares about people and saves the day.
Or maybe someone who cheers people up.
-Like a lollipop lady.
-You just gave me an idea!
To dress up as the lollipop lady?
No, silly, you just said
a hero is someone who cares for others and cheers you up.
Right? Well, who can you think that does that?
Hmm... The lollipop lady?
Er, no. Think harder!
-Great idea, Bella!
Of course, Bella, you're brilliant!
DAD: Bella, are you going to tell me the plan?
I'm sure it's in here.
Come on, Gran, we need to get back to Sam's!
- Close your eyes. - Yes, close your eyes.
-Are they closed?
-Yes, yes, yes, yes!
What's going on?
I have no idea.
-We've been solving.
And three, two, one...
..open your eyes!
Parent heroes are the most important people in the whole world!
Gran, you always care for other people.
That's why you're a Super Gran.
-The boy has great fashion sense!
-Dad, you always cheer me up.
-That's why you're my hero.
-Oh, I'm so happy you said that...
-but don't let your mother know.
-And, Dad, do you recognise this?
Well, it's my football kit from when I was younger.
Much better than pyjamas, isn't it?
Bella, you're so creative!
-I'm over the moon!
-You're my hero, Dad.
-And you, Zainab.
-And you, Kobi.
you're all heroes, because you're the coolest people on Planet Earth.
-And because you're all heroes...
-Why don't we swap costumes?
I think we're finally ready for Dress as a Hero Day.
Everyone looks fantastic.
But you'd better leave now. You don't want to be late for school.
-Morning, Mrs Barratt.
Ooh, you kids look amazing!
Get ready for Apple Tree Superheroes!
-Yesterday was so much fun.
I think Kobi, Ian and Grandma
were really proud that we dressed like them.
-But you know what?
I can't wait to dress as a hero next year.
Me too. Maybe you can dress up as the lollipop lady!
You're a good friend, Sam!
And you're a great friend, Mali.
When the children are asked to dress up as heroes for a day for school, Bella finds herself unsure of who she wants to be. Meanwhile, Sam and Mali's costumes are accidently shrunk in the wash. What are they going to do?
