This is the Earth.
Floating in the nothingness of space.
All the planets look so calm and neat from here.
All the messy bedrooms and muddy footprints
are much too far away to be seen,
but if we were to go a little closer,
I wonder what we would see.
Ah, there's the Soup Dragon,
keeping the soup wells nice and tidy.
A CLANGER WHISTLES
Tiny and Small have come to collect soup.
The Soup Dragon is not interested in Tiny's dance.
She seems a bit grumpy.
Hmm. They should know better than to take the soup
from the Soup Dragon's soup wells themselves.
What messy Clangers! Hmm.
Tiny and Small tell everyone
about the Soup Dragon being grumpy.
She didn't even like Tiny's new dance.
Yes, The Soup Dragon might not like
being disturbed every time the Clangers need soup.
Major Clanger is convinced this is the reason
the Soup Dragon is grumpy.
She's tired and doesn't want to be disturbed.
Ah, he's got an idea.
Major Clanger has started making something.
Whatever it is, it's impressive.
Ah, I see.
It's for fetching lots of soup,
so Tiny and Small don't have to
disturb the Soup Dragon so much.
I think Mother is more impressed by Tiny's dance.
But Major isn't interested in dancing.
He'd much rather try out his invention.
The Soup Dragon doesn't appear to be here.
Major has decided to take some soup
without asking the Soup Dragon.
The Soup Dragon won't be disturbed
by a single Clanger for days,
now that they're taking all that soup.
Major Clanger explains why
they're taking lots of soup.
So they won't disturb her so much any more.
So there they go,
with a week's supply of soup.
No wonder the Soup Dragon is so very grumpy.
Oh, dear. It appears to be stuck.
Ah, Major is going to put his back into it.
It's stuck in the doorway,
with Tiny and Major on one side
and Small on the other.
Good idea. The Soup Dragon can help.
Or maybe not.
Yes. Why won't the Soup Dragon help?
Oh, I see. The Soup Dragon is upset.
She doesn't like the Clangers leaving
the soup cave in such a mess
and none of the Clangers say please or thank you.
And now they want her to help them?
Ah, that's better.
The Soup Dragon wanted Small to say please and thank you.
And he did.
Well, it's turned into a family affair now.
The Soup Dragon thinks Small Clanger had better stand aside.
Thank you, indeed, Soup Dragon.
That really did the trick.
Well, no harm done,
but there's a lot of cleaning up to do.
Small explains that the Soup Dragon was grumpy
because they took the soup without asking,
but she'll really miss them
if they don't fetch soup every day.
Ah, yes. See what a "please" can do.
Maybe some things are better left the way they started.
It looks like Major has had another idea.
Look at that.
Major's invention makes an excellent vacuum cleaner.
One happy Soup Dragon.
Well, there we are.
It just goes to show an idea is always worth having.
You just have to know what your idea is for.
When Major Clanger decides that the Soup Dragon must be fed-up with dishing up soup for them all every day, he invents a machine to collect the soup instead. But when he takes some soup without even asking the Soup Dragon, he overfills the machine and it gets stuck in the doorway. Only with the help of the Soup Dragon can it be freed, and as it is freed, it explodes everywhere. Perhaps sometimes it is best to leave things as they always were.
