There it is...
The place where, from day to day, we lead our busy lives.
But, sometimes, we have a different day,
a day when we get together with all our family and friends,
and we celebrate.
And, I expect, if we were to look
into the vast stretches of outer space,
we could imagine other creatures, who, every now and then,
like to gather together with their family, and their friends,
and celebrate, too.
there's the Iron Chicken on her nest.
Let's go and see what she's up to, shall we?
She's looking through her telescope...
probably on the lookout for interesting junk.
Oh, I think she's seen something.
Something very interesting, indeed...
..and she wants to contact Tiny Clanger on her radio hat.
The Iron Chicken is telling Tiny that something is coming.
Tiny wants to know, "What's coming?",
but the Iron Chicken just tells her to tell Small...
-Small's very excited to hear that it's coming...
Doo-woo! Doo-woo! Doo-woo-oo!
-..and he wants to tell Mother right away.
But Tiny wants to know what's going on.
Woo-oo woo-oo woo! Do-oo.
Mother is delighted to hear the news, too.
Doo-woo doo-doo-doo doo-woo-oo-oo.
She says that she and Granny
must decorate the music trees immediately.
Oh! Small's off again.
Tiny really wants to know what it is that's coming,
but she also wants to keep up with Small.
Doo woo-doo doo-woo?
The Soup Dragon wants to know if she heard right...
is it REALLY coming?
Small tells her, "Yes, it is."
Well, in that case, she'll make some extra-special soup.
She hasn't a clue what's going on
and no-one seems to want to tell her.
It's all very odd.
It seems to be great news,
even the Froglets are excited.
Small is wondering if he's told everyone.
Tiny says he hasn't told Major Clanger.
And, of course, SHE wants to know, too.
Major says they must tell the Hoots, and the Sky Moos, too.
-Tiny still doesn't know what's going on,
and she really wishes she did.
-But Major says there's no time for chit-chat.
He wants them to help him with something,
something that will alert the Hoots and the Sky Moos.
What could it be?
Oh! A rocket.
I wonder how that rocket is going to tell the Hoots
and the Sky Moos.
Oh, it's a great, big firework!
The Hoots have seen the firework...
..and so have the Sky Moos.
Woo doo-oo woo.
Yes, that's certainly done the trick.
Now, here comes the Soup Dragon
and Baby Soup Dragon.
Woo do-woo wee-oo.
Tiny wants to know
if Baby Soup Dragon knows what's going on.
Baby Soup Dragon doesn't know.
she's feeling a bit left out.
Everyone seems so excited.
Look, here come the Sky Moos,
and the Hoots...
-..and the Iron Chicken...
..and the Froglets...
..and the Glow Buzzers...
..and let's not forget the cloud.
Yes - come on, Tiny.
And whatever it is that's coming,
it's here at last.
Well, will you look at that?
It's a wonderful, wonderful comet.
Doo-woo doo-doo oo-doo woo-oo-oo.
Oh, I see.
Everyone wanted the comet to be a surprise for Tiny.
That's why they didn't tell her what was coming.
Doo doo woo.
Mother wants Tiny to make a wish.
Woo-oo. Doo-woo wee-doo...
Last time the comet came past, Small was the youngest Clanger,
and it was his turn to make a wish.
And he wished for...
a little sister.
Yes, that's right, Tiny,
he wished for you.
Woo doo-woo doo wee-doo-doo woo-doo-woo.
Tiny can't think of anything to wish for.
Doo doo-woo-oo doo-woo. Doo woo-ee-oo woo.
She thinks that everything is perfect
just the way it is.
If Tiny doesn't want her wish, Baby Soup Dragon wants to know
if HE can have it instead.
Yes, of course he can.
I wonder what he's going to wish for.
a perfect thing to wish for.
What a lovely day it's been for the Clangers and all their friends.
And what a lovely surprise the comet was for Tiny Clanger.
A brilliant surprise.
When Tiny Clanger receives a message from the Iron Chicken that 'it's coming', she is mystified as to what the 'it' might be - and even more puzzled that no-one will tell her. Everyone seems to be in on the secret, but in the end, Tiny gets a brilliant surprise!
