# You gotta listen to your heart Listen to the beat

0:00:200:00:24

# Listen to the rhythm of the street Open your eyes! Open your ears!

0:00:240:00:30

# Get together, make things better By working together

0:00:300:00:34

# It's a simple message And it comes from the heart

0:00:340:00:38

# Believe in yourself For that's the place to start

0:00:380:00:43

-# And I say, hey!

-Hey!

-What a wonderful kind of day

0:00:430:00:48

# We can learn to work and play And get along with each other

0:00:480:00:53

# What a wonderful kind of day, hey! What a wonderful kind of day, HEY! #

0:00:530:00:59

Hey, DW!

0:00:590:01:01

-Hey!

-Whoa...

0:01:020:01:05

Welcome to the broadcast. You've won Hollywood's top honours

0:01:090:01:14

-and worked with the best directors. Matt Damon, what drives you?

-Casey,

0:01:140:01:19

I prefer to ride my bike whenever I can.

0:01:190:01:22

HE LAUGHS

0:01:220:01:24

This seems like a good opportunity to talk about my new project.

0:01:250:01:30

It's called Postcards From You.

0:01:300:01:32

I want kids to send me one-minute videos they make.

0:01:320:01:36

-I'll pick a few and air them on TV. Does that sound like fun?

-Sure does.

0:01:360:01:41

To enter, just email us and we'll send you the guidelines.

0:01:410:01:46

-Matt Damon, always a pleasure.

-This is the first time I've been here.

0:01:460:01:50

But thank you.

0:01:500:01:52

Time for bed.

0:01:520:01:54

Something I made could actually be on TV?

0:01:540:01:58

Imagine how cool THAT would be!

0:01:580:02:00

-Oh, I don't have a video camera.

-You can borrow mine.

0:02:000:02:03

It's not the latest model, but it works.

0:02:030:02:06

Sleep tight.

0:02:060:02:09

I wonder what I should film.

0:02:090:02:11

-Hey! Maybe I should make it about you!

-Woof!

0:02:110:02:17

Aagh!

0:02:210:02:22

Congratulations! You're all invited to audition to be extras in my video

0:02:260:02:32

-for Matt Damon.

-I'm entering that contest too.

0:02:320:02:35

You have to send in a one-minute video about something.

0:02:350:02:39

Don't waste your time.

0:02:390:02:41

My daddy sold a car to Matt Damon's lawyer's assistant, so I'm gonna win.

0:02:410:02:46

But you would be fabulous as Average Kid Number 2.

0:02:460:02:50

What could I film for one minute that would be of scientific value?

0:02:500:02:55

-Atchoo!

-That's it!

0:02:550:02:58

I have the perfect subject for my video - you!

0:02:580:03:02

-Why me?

-Why not? You're very interesting.

0:03:020:03:06

Besides, I don't think I could get footage of a real alien in time.

0:03:060:03:11

-What's YOURS gonna be about, Arthur Read?

-Just wait and see.

0:03:110:03:16

Every morning, Pal starts off with a bowl of delicious beef kibble.

0:03:160:03:22

That's your cue, DW!

0:03:220:03:25

# La-la-la-la-la! #

0:03:250:03:26

Good morning, Arthur's smelly dog.

0:03:260:03:29

Even though you've been very bad, I'll grant you a breakfast anyway.

0:03:290:03:34

Cut!

0:03:340:03:36

Why are you dressed like that, and why are you giving Pal lettuce?

0:03:360:03:40

I'm the breakfast fairy and your dog eats too much meat.

0:03:400:03:44

He should have a salad once in a while.

0:03:440:03:47

-There are no fairies in my movie!

-It's OUR movie!

0:03:470:03:52

Mom said I could help too.

0:03:520:03:54

Guys, you're missing a great nature video!

0:03:540:03:57

The squirrel, known to scientists as, er, Squirrelis squirrelisimis,

0:03:580:04:03

tries to make a meal out of the dog's unwanted breakfast...

0:04:030:04:07

-PAL BARKS

-He fails.

0:04:070:04:09

The Read yard is indeed a hostile environment.

0:04:090:04:12

Now that your star is off catching a case of rabies,

0:04:130:04:17

can we please film MY idea?

0:04:170:04:20

And now, presenting the lovely Nadini!

0:04:210:04:26

For her first trick, she will produce a pig out of a hat.

0:04:260:04:30

Wonderful! Amazing!

0:04:360:04:39

Oh! Two of clubs?

0:04:390:04:41

-That WAS the card I was thinking of!

-This Nadini's not bad

0:04:410:04:46

for someone who isn't even real! What do you think, Arthur Read?

0:04:460:04:51

I think we need more ideas.

0:04:510:04:54

The sneeze is one of the most fascinating responses in the body.

0:04:540:05:00

Atchoo!

0:05:000:05:01

Now watch the same image slowed down to a quarter of the speed.

0:05:010:05:06

Aa-aa-tch-oo-oo!

0:05:060:05:09

The air coming out of his nose is spewing out 100,000 bacteria.

0:05:090:05:14

-That's your video?!

-I was going to have George sneeze multiple times,

0:05:140:05:19

but he had to work on HIS project. Hey, you guys could be my subjects.

0:05:190:05:24

I have to go...wash my pants!

0:05:240:05:26

-Yeah, I'm late for, um, something.

-Come on!

0:05:260:05:30

I even have pepper!

0:05:300:05:32

Welcome to This Old Doll House.

0:05:330:05:36

I'm your host, George Lundgren.

0:05:360:05:38

So, Miss Molina, what is it you wanna do with this house?

0:05:380:05:42

It's too small for Raulito. He wants a barn put on the side,

0:05:420:05:46

but it should look like a castle.

0:05:460:05:48

Uh, that could be a little difficult.

0:05:480:05:51

But hey, I notice you have some rot over here, so what we're gonna do

0:05:510:05:56

-is remove this side...

-What are you doing?!

-I'm trying to fix it!

0:05:560:06:01

You're destroying Raulito's house! Monster! Alberto!

0:06:010:06:04

Arthur sips the last of his smoothie,

0:06:050:06:09

trying to come up with a new idea.

0:06:090:06:11

But his head's as empty as his glass.

0:06:110:06:14

-Would you cut that out?

-That was good.

0:06:140:06:17

-But you moved your head.

-I'm serious.

0:06:170:06:20

The deadline is in three days, and I still don't know what to shoot.

0:06:200:06:25

Have some mozzarella sticks. I haven't filmed you eating yet.

0:06:250:06:30

That's it!

0:06:300:06:32

Et voila!

0:06:350:06:36

That is how you make David Read's lighter-than-air chocolate souffle.

0:06:360:06:41

Wait! It's not finished!

0:06:410:06:44

Thank you, sprinkle fairy.

0:06:450:06:47

Cut!

0:06:470:06:48

DW, you ruined the shot. Now we have to start all over.

0:06:480:06:52

You can just edit it out.

0:06:520:06:54

Yes, smarty-pants! We can just edit it out.

0:06:540:06:58

What's an edit, and how do we get it out?

0:06:580:07:01

Editing is where you take all the stuff you've filmed

0:07:010:07:05

and cut it up so it's fun to watch. I'll show you.

0:07:050:07:08

First, you have to cut out the boring parts,

0:07:080:07:12

or anything you don't want people to see.

0:07:120:07:15

THEY GIGGLE

0:07:150:07:17

Then you add in some background music.

0:07:180:07:22

You can also add in some cool graphics for your title.

0:07:220:07:26

Finally, after hours and hours of work, you're done.

0:07:260:07:31

Arthur Read leaves his house with his finished one-minute video.

0:07:320:07:36

All his hopes and dreams are in that envelope...

0:07:360:07:40

Don't you think you have enough footage of me by now?

0:07:400:07:43

I never got a shot of you brushing your teeth, but you're right.

0:07:430:07:48

Goodbye, Arthur. You've been a wonderful subject.

0:07:480:07:52

-I'm really gonna miss you.

-I'm your best friend. I see you every day.

0:07:520:07:57

Oh, yeah! Well, good luck.

0:07:570:08:00

You included one to Matt's pet stylist, right?

0:08:040:08:08

Hey, Muffy! How did your video go?

0:08:080:08:10

It was exhausting. The special effects took forever.

0:08:100:08:15

You had special effects?

0:08:150:08:17

Of course! How can you do Muffy The Umpire Slayer

0:08:170:08:20

without a baseball team of flying vampire zombies?

0:08:200:08:24

Is that yours?

0:08:240:08:25

Yeah. It's my dad making a chocolate souffle.

0:08:250:08:29

A cooking video? Well, there's always cable.

0:08:290:08:34

Ciao.

0:08:340:08:35

Moby Dick? Sure, I'll do it,

0:08:390:08:42

-but I want 100% of the back end, and I wanna be the whale.

-Script for you

0:08:420:08:47

-Mr Damon. It's by someone named Arthur Read.

-Arthur Read?!

0:08:470:08:52

Oh, I remember that kid's one-minute video. It was terrible.

0:08:520:08:57

Tell Arthur Read that he'll never eat lunch in this town again.

0:08:570:09:01

-He's from Elwood City.

-Tell him he can't eat lunch there, either.

0:09:010:09:05

Uh-huh? Yes, sir. Right away, Mr Damon.

0:09:080:09:11

You should unwrap the chocolate bar before you make another souffle.

0:09:250:09:31

I'm not cooking, DW. I'm just doing a little more work on the video.

0:09:310:09:35

-But we finished it.

-I decided that it needs more, um...pzazz.

0:09:350:09:41

See, if I only shoot one frame of video at a time,

0:09:410:09:45

and move these objects a little between each frame,

0:09:450:09:49

it will look like they're moving on their own. It's a special effect,

0:09:490:09:53

-stop motion animation.

-Doesn't sound special. Maybe the glitter fairy...

0:09:530:09:59

-No!

-Humph!

0:09:590:10:01

-Well, if you ask me, what we did before was just fine.

-Oh-h!

0:10:010:10:06

'We're delicious!'

0:10:090:10:12

Oh, it'll have to do.

0:10:130:10:16

"Are you sure you want to delete this?" Sure I'm sure...

0:10:170:10:21

What have I done?!

0:10:220:10:25

PHONE RINGS

0:10:250:10:27

-Hello?

-Buster, I wanted to work on the video some more,

0:10:270:10:30

-but I pressed "delete" instead of "save"...

-You erased it all?

0:10:300:10:35

-That's great!

-How is that great?

0:10:350:10:37

You can share my project.

0:10:370:10:39

I have to edit 72 hours of footage down to one minute. I need help.

0:10:390:10:44

-Do you really think there's a chance we could win?

-Who knows?

0:10:440:10:48

They put Mary Moo Cow on TV - why not you?

0:10:480:10:51

Take that, you demon creature from Cooperstown!

0:10:530:10:58

Ha-ha-ha! To reach home, you must face Vladimira,

0:10:580:11:03

the Umpire!

0:11:030:11:05

Aagh! Your credit card! It's blinding me!

0:11:050:11:10

By the power of King Midas,

0:11:100:11:13

I banish thee forever and for all time.

0:11:130:11:18

What are they teaching kids these days?

0:11:180:11:21

-Didn't the Crosswires sell your lawyer's assistant a car?

-Oh, yeah!

0:11:210:11:26

What a lemon!

0:11:260:11:28

The last one - Arthur, The Story of A Kid, His Sister And His Friends.

0:11:280:11:33

Well, at least it doesn't sound fake. Let's give it a shot.

0:11:330:11:38

-Yes?

-Hi.

-Does an Arthur Read live here?

0:11:430:11:46

Oh-h! You're Matt Damon!

0:11:460:11:50

Arthur's not here. He moved to Alaska,

0:11:500:11:52

-or Venus, but he said you could put me on TV instead...

-Did I win?

0:11:520:11:57

-Is my video gonna be on TV?

-Er, no.

0:11:570:12:00

We're going with a George Lundgren. But since we're passing through,

0:12:000:12:05

we wanted to speak to you and your parents. I loved your video,

0:12:050:12:10

-and I was hoping to make it into a TV show.

-Wow!

0:12:100:12:13

HE WHISTLES

0:12:130:12:15

Let's get a shot of you and your dog on the sidewalk passing the house.

0:12:150:12:20

# Every day you walk down the street Everybody that you meet

0:12:200:12:26

# Has an original point of view...

0:12:260:12:29

# Every day you walk down the street Everybody that you meet

0:12:290:12:37

# Has an original point of view

0:12:370:12:41

-# And I say, hey!

-Hey!

-What a wonderful kind of day... #

0:12:410:12:45

Matt Damon guest stars in animated form as the presenter of Arthur's favourite TV programme, Postcards from You. Damon's character asks viewers to send in home made movies, sparking a craze amongst Arthur's friends. Could the experiences of kids in Elwood City really interest a television audience? Theyll have to wait and see if Matt Damon thinks so.

This episode promotes the real Postcards From You initiative, which encourages children from all over the world to send in their own films for broadcast in an episode of Arthur.
