This is the Earth.

0:00:430:00:45

Floating in the nothingness of space.

0:00:450:00:47

All the planets look so calm and neat from here.

0:00:480:00:52

All the messy bedrooms and muddy footprints

0:00:520:00:54

are much too far away to be seen,

0:00:540:00:57

but if we were to go a little closer,

0:00:570:00:59

I wonder what we would see.

0:00:590:01:01

Ah, there's the Soup Dragon,

0:01:030:01:05

keeping the soup wells nice and tidy.

0:01:050:01:08

A CLANGER WHISTLES

0:01:090:01:11

Tiny and Small have come to collect soup.

0:01:140:01:17

The Soup Dragon is not interested in Tiny's dance.

0:01:220:01:25

She seems a bit grumpy.

0:01:250:01:27

Hmm. They should know better than to take the soup

0:01:290:01:32

from the Soup Dragon's soup wells themselves.

0:01:320:01:35

What messy Clangers! Hmm.

0:01:500:01:53

Tiny and Small tell everyone

0:01:550:01:57

about the Soup Dragon being grumpy.

0:01:570:02:00

She didn't even like Tiny's new dance.

0:02:020:02:05

Yes, The Soup Dragon might not like

0:02:160:02:18

being disturbed every time the Clangers need soup.

0:02:180:02:22

Major Clanger is convinced this is the reason

0:02:260:02:29

the Soup Dragon is grumpy.

0:02:290:02:31

She's tired and doesn't want to be disturbed.

0:02:310:02:34

Ah, he's got an idea.

0:02:360:02:38

Major Clanger has started making something.

0:02:400:02:43

IMPRESSED WHISTLE

0:03:070:03:09

Yes.

0:03:090:03:10

Whatever it is, it's impressive.

0:03:100:03:12

QUESTIONING WHISTLE

0:03:140:03:16

HE WHISTLES

0:03:160:03:18

Ah, I see.

0:03:240:03:25

It's for fetching lots of soup,

0:03:250:03:27

so Tiny and Small don't have to

0:03:270:03:29

disturb the Soup Dragon so much.

0:03:290:03:32

MACHINE WHIRS

0:03:320:03:34

That's better.

0:03:390:03:40

I think Mother is more impressed by Tiny's dance.

0:03:470:03:50

But Major isn't interested in dancing.

0:03:510:03:54

He'd much rather try out his invention.

0:03:540:03:56

LOUD WHISTLE

0:03:580:04:00

The Soup Dragon doesn't appear to be here.

0:04:190:04:22

Oh.

0:04:280:04:29

Major has decided to take some soup

0:04:290:04:31

without asking the Soup Dragon.

0:04:310:04:33

MACHINE WHIRS

0:04:380:04:44

The Soup Dragon won't be disturbed

0:04:480:04:50

by a single Clanger for days,

0:04:500:04:52

now that they're taking all that soup.

0:04:520:04:55

Major Clanger explains why

0:05:050:05:07

they're taking lots of soup.

0:05:070:05:09

So they won't disturb her so much any more.

0:05:090:05:11

So there they go,

0:05:330:05:34

with a week's supply of soup.

0:05:340:05:37

No wonder the Soup Dragon is so very grumpy.

0:05:370:05:40

Oh, dear. It appears to be stuck.

0:05:530:05:56

Ah, Major is going to put his back into it.

0:06:100:06:13

It's stuck in the doorway,

0:06:380:06:40

with Tiny and Major on one side

0:06:400:06:42

and Small on the other.

0:06:420:06:44

Good idea. The Soup Dragon can help.

0:06:510:06:54

Or maybe not.

0:06:560:06:57

PLEADING WHISTLE

0:06:590:07:02

Yes. Why won't the Soup Dragon help?

0:07:030:07:06

Oh, I see. The Soup Dragon is upset.

0:07:100:07:14

She doesn't like the Clangers leaving

0:07:140:07:16

the soup cave in such a mess

0:07:160:07:18

and none of the Clangers say please or thank you.

0:07:180:07:22

And now they want her to help them?

0:07:220:07:24

SORRY WHISTLE

0:07:260:07:29

Ah, that's better.

0:07:400:07:41

The Soup Dragon wanted Small to say please and thank you.

0:07:410:07:45

And he did.

0:07:450:07:47

Well, it's turned into a family affair now.

0:07:490:07:52

HAPPY WHISTLE

0:07:520:07:54

The Soup Dragon thinks Small Clanger had better stand aside.

0:07:550:07:59

Thank you, indeed, Soup Dragon.

0:08:330:08:35

That really did the trick.

0:08:350:08:37

Oh, dear.

0:08:400:08:42

Well, no harm done,

0:08:490:08:52

but there's a lot of cleaning up to do.

0:08:520:08:54

Small explains that the Soup Dragon was grumpy

0:09:040:09:07

because they took the soup without asking,

0:09:070:09:10

but she'll really miss them

0:09:100:09:11

if they don't fetch soup every day.

0:09:110:09:14

Ah, yes. See what a "please" can do.

0:09:300:09:33

Maybe some things are better left the way they started.

0:09:360:09:39

It looks like Major has had another idea.

0:09:520:09:54

MACHINE WHIRS

0:10:010:10:04

Look at that.

0:10:090:10:11

Major's invention makes an excellent vacuum cleaner.

0:10:110:10:15

One happy Soup Dragon.

0:10:280:10:31

Well, there we are.

0:10:310:10:32

It just goes to show an idea is always worth having.

0:10:320:10:36

You just have to know what your idea is for.

0:10:360:10:39

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.
