Planet Earth, an amazing place full of wonderful sights.
And if we were to travel through the vastness of space,
there are other wonderful sights to see. Like this sun.
Suns are superb.
And this moon - moons are a marvel.
And the Iron Chicken's quite a sight, too.
But if you're lucky, there's one thing that's the rarest of sights
you can see - when the sun hides behind a moon
and its shine can't be seen.
It's called a solar eclipse.
I think Tiny and Small are enjoying a game of Find The Froglet.
-Yes, I heard that, too. It sounded very...
-Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
Woo, woo, woo, woo woo.
Mother wants to know what Tiny and Small are doing.
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
Ha-ha! Now she knows. Tiny and Small have found the Froglet.
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
Woo woo WOO woo!
Yes! They've found another Froglet.
Ah, there's one final Froglet for them both to find.
-Mmm. That sounds froglety.
Woo woo woo woo woo woo?
Woo woo woo woo.
Woo, woo woo woo woo woo.
-It wasn't a Froglet. It was the sound of Major's ratchet.
-Well, fancy that!
Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit!
Woo woo-woo woo!
They've found the final Froglet.
Ribbit. Ribbit, ribbit.
Whee-he whee, do-do-do-do.
The young Clangers want to know what's in Major's box.
Woo woo woo woo woo. Woo-woo?
-Woo woo WOO!
-Woo woo woo-woo woo.
Major will show them when the time is right.
Right now, they have to get ready for the solar eclipse.
Woo woo-woo-woo woo.
Woo woo-woo-woo woo.
Tiny and Small want to know what a solar eclipse is.
Woo woo-woo woo woo woo woo.
-Major tells the Clangers to imagine he is...
Woo woo woo-woo, woo woo woo woo.
And Granny Clanger is a sun.
Woo woo-woo woo, woo woo-woo woo.
Woo woo woo WOO! Woo woo, woo woo-woo-woo-woo!
Ah, so when a moon moves right in front of a sun,
it's called a solar eclipse.
Woo woo woo-woo woo, woo woo woo.
Yes, just like Find The Froglet.
Woo woo, woo woo woo. Woo woo-woo woo woo-woo.
Everyone hurry and follow Major. There's a solar eclipse to watch.
Woo woo woo-woo-woo woo. Woo-woo-woo woo woo.
Major's right. You must never look straight at the sun.
It'll hurt your eyes.
Woo-woo-woo, woo-woo-woo. Woo woo woo woo woo.
Ah, these look like they'll do the trick.
Special eclipse glasses. Very important.
Woo woo woo woo.
Yes, the special eclipse glasses are dark, but you need them
to protect your eyes from the glare.
Woo woo woo-woo-woo. Woo woo woo woo woo.
Major says they have to be dark so you can look at the sun
without hurting your eyes.
Ah, the sun! Wonderful.
Woo woo, woo woo woo! Woo woo wooo woo.
And there's the moon moving towards the sun.
Woo woo, woo woo woo. Doo-do do do doo.
Oh, no! It looks like the eclipse is going to happen
behind the Iron Chicken's nest.
But she's fast asleep.
Yes, the Iron Chicken's nest will block them
from seeing the solar eclipse.
They'll never see the whole eclipse now.
The Iron Chicken is eclipsing the eclipse!
Do do do do do, do-do-do. Do do do, doo do doo doo do-do-do!
Small's right. Why don't they stand somewhere else,
so they can see around the Iron Chicken's nest?
Do do woo.
Oh, dear. The Iron Chicken's nest is still in the way.
Do, do, do-do do-do do!
It looks like Tiny has an idea.
Woo woo. Woo woo woo?
Small wants to know what they're doing.
Woo woo woo, doo doo doo do.
Tiny reminds Small about how they moved Granny to find
the Froglet earlier on.
Doo doo doo do do-do-do-do, do-do do do do do-do do.
She wants to move the Iron Chicken's nest
so they can see the solar eclipse. How clever!
But how are they going to move the nest?
Oh, no! It's not working. They need more pull.
Wheeoo! Woo, woo. Woo woo, woo woo-woo woooooo!
Tiny is calling to a Sky Moo to help.
Oh, look at that!
CELESTIAL CHOIR: # O, o, o! #
Ha, ha, ha! A solar eclipse. How wonderful.
Woo woo, woo woo.
Ah! Behind, Chicken has woken up, just in time.
Good work, Clangers!
Do wheee-oo, doo doo, do do-do-do do doooo.
In space - like on Earth - there are many amazing sights to behold,
