It's a familiar place to you and me, of course,
but it's an extraordinary place too.
And if we were to go off on a trip into space, I'm sure
we would find other places just as extraordinary in their own way.
Ah, that's definitely such a place. It's the Clangers' planet.
I think it deserves a visit, don't you?
There's Small Clanger
coming down in the music boat.
And there's Major Clanger. He's glad to see Small.
He needs a helping hand.
BOTH: Oo, doo, woo!
Ooh, that's new.
BOTH: Oo, doo, woo!
Woo doo woo.
Major is very proud of his new rocket invention.
Small wants to know what it's for.
Major says it's for travelling.
But Small says they've already got the music boat.
Ah, but this one's for special journeys to extraordinary places.
Now Major just needs an extraordinary place to go to.
Small suggests a trip to the Iron Chicken's nest, or the hoop planet.
Major says that those are special places,
but he wants somewhere really special.
There must be somewhere new and extraordinary out there
amongst the stars.
Do-do-woo, do-do-woo, woo-do-do.
Oh, yes, Small. Major could look through his best telescope.
Major thinks that's a very fine idea.
-And Small's off to get it.
Those glow buzzers are very curious about Major's best telescope.
Small says goodbye, he must get back to Major,
Woo. Doo woo.
It looks like a golden planet!
Small wants to look.
Yes, it's definitely a golden planet.
They've never seen the likes of it before. How very exciting!
Now Major's found his special place to visit,
all that's left to do is decide on who he'll take with him.
The Soup Dragon or a froglet perhaps?
Oh! Major was only teasing.
Of course Small can come.
Oh, but there's Mother Clanger with some garden
clippings for the sky moos.
She's coming over to see what Major and Small are up to.
Woo! Doo woo?
Mother likes Major's new rocket. She thinks it's very fine indeed.
Major's telling her about the golden planet,
and that they're going to take a trip there.
Woo! Do-woo-do-woo-woo! Woo-do-do.
Mother likes the sound of a golden planet.
She thinks it sounds wonderful.
Ah, Small says that he thinks that Mother should be the one to
go with Major first.
Major thinks Small is a very kind and thoughtful Clanger.
He's asking Mother if she'd like to join him
on his trip to the golden planet.
Mother is delighted.
She'd love to go.
Off she hurries to get ready.
Yes. Well done, Small.
Oh, and don't forget Mother's clippings for the sky moo.
Ah, and now Mother's ready.
And Granny's come with her to see them off.
Mother's asking Granny to keep an eye on Tiny and Small
while they're gone.
And, of course, Granny is happy to.
Oh, what does the Soup Dragon have here?
It's some soup to enjoy when they reach the golden planet.
And here's Tiny.
She wants to know what's going on.
Woo-do-woo-do woo do-do-do.
Small's telling her about the golden planet they found.
A golden planet! Tiny's never seen that before.
She'd like to look in the telescope herself.
Woo-woo! Woo-woo! Do-woo-woo-do!
And now Mother and Major are ready to go.
Oh, the Soup Dragon always gets tearful when it comes to goodbyes.
Hold on. That's a bit odd.
When Tiny moves the telescope, the planet moves too.
Tiny has asked them to stop just before takeoff.
Oh, dear. Tiny explains the disappointing news.
There's no golden planet.
She discovered that it was just a blob of glow honey from a glow
buzzer, stuck on the lens of the telescope.
Oh, dear. Poor Major.
Major says he's very sorry
but he has no special place to take Mother.
Mother tells Major not to be so silly.
Wherever her lovely husband is is a special place for her.
And Tiny and Small and Granny, of course.
Oh, dear. The Soup Dragon's getting weepy again.
ALL: Woo woo!
Major says a trip will still go ahead.
Twice around the hoop planet, and then home again for soup.
ALL: Woo-doo! Woo-doo!
What a good idea, Tiny.
Some lovely music to send them on their way.
Well, there you have it.
Major and Mother didn't need to fly off to some extraordinary
place to feel special.
Just being together is enough.
There's nothing more special than being with the ones you love.
When he and Small look through the telescope, they see just the place - a golden planet. Unfortunately Tiny discovers that the golden planet they see is not what it appears to be.
