Planet Earth, where new things are made and old things wear out.
But where do these old things go?
Into bins, onto dumps
and sometimes flung far into space.
What to do with these old worn out things?
Perhaps the Clangers know.
Perhaps they know what to do.
It looks like Small Clanger is having a picnic.
But who is he waiting for?
Oh, what a fine telescope.
What is Small Clanger looking for, I wonder?
Aha, the Iron Chicken.
She must've been invited to Small's picnic.
What was that?
Oh, dear. It's a lot of old worn out metal.
And it's stopping the Iron Chicken from flying the nest.
Poor Iron Chicken.
There'll be no picnic for her unless she gets help.
And Small Clanger is going to need Tiny Clanger
to help with the helping.
How are they going to help the Iron Chicken?
JAUNTY NAUTICAL MUSIC
Up they go,
up into space
to help the Iron Chicken.
Ah. This looks interesting.
What clever Clangers.
They're going to clear away the bits and bobs with their nets
so the Iron Chicken can fly down to the picnic.
Tiny and Small are working quickly
but it's going to take a very long time indeed.
You can't fish for bits and bobs without a net.
Dee-do, dee-do. Dee-do.
Yes, perhaps Major Clanger can help out.
They're calling for Major Clanger.
-Maybe he knows how to clear the sky.
Oo-up. Oo-up. Oo-oo-oo?
Doo-doo, dee-doo dee-doo.
Doo-doo, doo-doo, dee-dee-dee-doo.
Woo-oo, woo-oo. Woo-woo-woo.
All this scrap metal has given Major an idea.
What is that?
I see. It's a magnet.
Magnets stick to metal things so you can move them around...
..like the scrap metal flying around the Iron Chicken's nest.
Woo. Woo. Woo!
Yes, this looks like a job for Major.
He'll soon tidy everything up.
Ah! He's caught something.
It's a whopper!
Well, look at that.
That's one way of cleaning up the rubbish in space.
HORN PLAYS: Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Something's gone wrong.
Whoops. That was a heavy landing.
Major tells Small he's fine.
Thanks to everyone's help, space is all clean and tidy
and the Iron Chicken can come to the picnic.
Oh, she's gone.
Doo-de-doo. De doo.
It sounds like the Iron Chicken...
Bock-bock, bwark. Bock-bock, bwark.
..but it doesn't look like her.
ALL: Doo-doo, doo, doo.
Oh, yes, it's her all right.
Bock-bock, bock-bock, bwark.
One Iron Chicken ready for a picnic.
Oo, doo-doo, oo, doo-doo, oo, doo-doo?
Yes, what are they going to do with all that worn out metal.
Dee, doo-doo doo.
Ooo, ee doo-doo doo.
Do, dee, doo-doo.
Doo-doo, dee, doo-doo.
-Bock-bock, bock, bwark.
-What a great idea.
The Iron Chicken's very own nest on the Clanger's planet.
So perhaps that's what happens to all the worn out bits and bobs
that get flung into space.
The Clangers re-use them to make something new.
What very clever Clangers.
Small has invited the Iron Chicken to a picnic. But the Iron Chicken is late, and when Small looks through his telescope, he can see why. The Iron Chicken is trapped by a load of junk metal which has got caught in orbit around her nest. Major comes up with a clever solution to free the nest of the orbiting metal, but in doing so it seems he may have inadvertently lost the Iron Chicken.
