Look at that big, round place. It's the Planet Earth, of course!

0:00:410:00:47

Home to lots of talented people, like artists, doctors

0:00:470:00:51

and scientists, who share their wonderful work with everyone else.

0:00:510:00:55

They're proud of what they do, and so they should be.

0:00:550:00:59

And if we were to venture off into the vast reaches of outer space,

0:00:590:01:03

would we find other talented creatures?

0:01:030:01:06

Ones who are happy to share their work with their friends?

0:01:060:01:10

Oh, look. There's a SMALL, round place.

0:01:100:01:13

It's the Clangers' planet, of course.

0:01:130:01:16

Let's go down and see what we can see.

0:01:160:01:19

There are the Clangers,

0:01:190:01:21

busy in their cave.

0:01:210:01:24

-Woo-oo oo.

-Except for Small Clanger.

0:01:240:01:27

He doesn't look busy at all.

0:01:270:01:29

Woo. Woo. Woo-oo.

0:01:310:01:35

Woo-oo oo.

0:01:500:01:53

Oh, well. That's the end of that little game. What now?

0:01:540:01:59

CLICKING

0:01:590:02:01

Everyone's busy doing what they're good at.

0:02:090:02:13

TAPPING

0:02:130:02:16

Woo oo-oo oo doo oo oo.

0:02:160:02:18

Small's decided to do something he's good at, too.

0:02:180:02:21

Ah. Small's going to do some drawing.

0:02:230:02:26

-Oo doo-oo woo-oo.

-Now to find something to draw.

0:02:260:02:30

Moo!

0:02:380:02:40

Ah! A sky moo.

0:02:410:02:43

Oo woo oo. Doo-oo.

0:02:440:02:47

Yes, that's a good thing to draw.

0:02:470:02:50

Moo.

0:02:500:02:53

Oo-woo?

0:02:580:02:59

Moo.

0:03:010:03:04

-The sky moo wants to see Small's drawing.

-Oo-woo oo-woo.

0:03:040:03:08

-Oo doo oo-woo oo woo-oo doo-oo.

-Oh, but Small doesn't want her to see.

0:03:080:03:13

He doesn't think it's good enough.

0:03:130:03:15

Oo woo oo-doo woo doo-oo-woo, oo-doo woo-oo.

0:03:150:03:18

Small doesn't think he's good at drawing any more.

0:03:180:03:21

Poor Small. Oh, well.

0:03:220:03:25

Never mind. Time for Mother's delicious clippings.

0:03:250:03:28

Looks like Small's going to try to draw something else,

0:03:320:03:36

in the soup well caves, this time.

0:03:360:03:39

He's drawing a little froglet.

0:03:430:03:46

Ribbit. Ribbit.

0:03:520:03:56

Woo-oo woo-oo. Oo woo doo-oo-oo.

0:03:560:03:59

Small doesn't want to show the froglet his drawing either.

0:03:590:04:02

He doesn't think it's good enough.

0:04:020:04:05

-Oo-woo-doo-oo-doo.

-Ribbit.

0:04:050:04:07

Ah. Here's somewhere Small can draw in private.

0:04:250:04:30

Mm. I think Small would like to draw on the wall.

0:04:390:04:43

There's much more room there.

0:04:430:04:46

Woo-oo. Doo-oo-oo woo-oo.

0:04:470:04:50

But he knows he shouldn't usually draw on walls.

0:04:500:04:53

Well, it's just chalk, and he can rub it away again.

0:05:020:05:06

It'll be all right.

0:05:060:05:08

Oo doo-oo-oo oo woo.

0:05:080:05:11

TAPPING

0:05:160:05:18

Here's Major Clanger.

0:05:220:05:24

He needs some more moonflower oil,

0:05:240:05:26

so he's off to the deeper caves to get some.

0:05:260:05:30

Oo doo-oo oo woo.

0:05:310:05:33

Oh, Small's still not happy with his picture.

0:05:330:05:36

-Oo woo oo-doo-oo woo oo doo-oo. Woo oo.

-Poor Small.

0:05:360:05:40

He seems to have lost his confidence in drawing.

0:05:410:05:45

He's going to leave it,

0:05:470:05:49

and go and do something he knows he's really good at -

0:05:490:05:52

fishing.

0:05:520:05:54

Now, where are those moonflowers?

0:06:050:06:08

Oh, yes. This way!

0:06:110:06:14

Oo-woo. Oo woo-oo.

0:06:220:06:24

Major's spotted the drawing. Well, well.

0:06:240:06:27

He's never noticed that before!

0:06:270:06:29

Woo oo-doo-oo. Oo-woo doo-oo-oo.

0:06:310:06:33

And he thinks it's very interesting.

0:06:330:06:36

Oo-woo doo-oo-oo woo.

0:06:360:06:38

He's off to tell the others.

0:06:380:06:39

Oo woo doo-oo woo-oo-oo.

0:06:420:06:44

Yes! Major's made a discovery.

0:06:440:06:46

-Oo woo-oo?

-Oo woo oo-doo woo-oo. Oo-woo-oo oo-oo.

0:06:460:06:50

A wonderful cave drawing!

0:06:500:06:51

-Woo oo-doo woo-oo woo oo-woo.

-Oh.

0:06:510:06:54

Major hasn't realised it was drawn by Small.

0:06:540:06:57

-BOTH:

-Oo-woo-oo!

0:06:570:06:59

There's Tiny, talking to the Iron Chicken with her special radio hat.

0:06:590:07:03

Oo-oo woo oo-doo woo-oo. Woo-oo-oo woo-oo.

0:07:030:07:06

Tiny's telling the Iron Chicken about Major's discovery!

0:07:060:07:10

Oo-oo woo oo-doo woo-oo. Woo-oo-oo woo-oo.

0:07:100:07:13

Buk buk-buk-buk buk. Buk buk buk.

0:07:130:07:17

Well, this is something she must see for herself.

0:07:170:07:20

There's Small Clanger,

0:07:210:07:23

doing what he definitely knows he's good at - fishing in the music boat.

0:07:230:07:27

Oo oo-doo woo oo doo woo-oo-oo.

0:07:270:07:29

Small wants to know where that chicken is off to in such a hurry.

0:07:290:07:33

Buk buk buk-buk buk buk-buk-buk buk buk-buk.

0:07:330:07:36

-Oo woo-oo-oo woo-oo, doo oo-oo woo-oo.

-Oh.

0:07:370:07:42

There's a wonderful drawing. Ha-ha! Small likes drawings.

0:07:420:07:46

He's off to see it, too.

0:07:460:07:49

-Oo woo doo-oo...

-Oo woo-oo...

0:07:490:07:51

Everyone's gathered in the cave, where Small's drawing is.

0:07:510:07:55

Buk-buk, buk-buk. Buk-buk, buk-buk.

0:07:550:07:57

Woo-oo. Doo, oo.

0:07:570:08:00

Major is going to tell them all about his discovery.

0:08:000:08:03

Woo oo-oo-doo-oo woo oo-oo-doo. Woo-oo doo-oo woo-oo-oo oo...

0:08:030:08:08

Major says the drawing must have been made a long time ago,

0:08:080:08:11

-even before Granny was born.

-..oo-woo doo oo.

0:08:110:08:15

-ALL:

-Oo WOO-oo!

0:08:150:08:16

Woo-oo-oo doo oo, doo oo-oo-woo. Oo woo-oo doo oo.

0:08:160:08:20

Woo-oo oo oo doo-oo oo woo oo-oo oo oo oo.

0:08:200:08:24

Doo-oo oo oo woo-oo oo doo woo-oo...

0:08:240:08:27

-Oo woo doo woo-oo?

-Bla-ra-la-ga-la.

-Yes, quiet, Small.

0:08:270:08:31

Major's making an important speech.

0:08:310:08:34

..oo-woo-oo doo oo woo-oo. Doo-oo woo oo...

0:08:340:08:37

Major's showing them the three Soup Dragons.

0:08:370:08:40

He thinks this is because in those days,

0:08:400:08:42

many more Soup Dragons roamed the planet.

0:08:420:08:45

-ALL:

-Oo-woo oo!

0:08:450:08:47

Oo oo-woo oo!

0:08:470:08:49

Oo woo-oo.

0:08:490:08:50

Oo-woo-oo doo oo woo, oo-doo woo oo-doo oo.

0:08:500:08:55

Oo-doo oo woo-oo.

0:08:550:08:56

Small's telling Major that there are three Soup Dragons because the

0:08:560:09:01

Soup Dragon is hard to draw, and he tried to get her right three times.

0:09:010:09:05

-Oo-woo?

-Oo-woo oo-doo woo-oo oo.

0:09:050:09:08

Yes, Major!

0:09:080:09:09

It was Small who made the drawing.

0:09:090:09:11

-Oo woo-oo-oo-oo oo.

-Oh, Major understands now.

0:09:140:09:17

-ALL:

-Oo-woo-hoo-oo-doo!

0:09:170:09:20

Oo-woo oo doo-oo oo doo-oo woo-oo, woo-oo.

0:09:200:09:22

And Major thinks the drawing is excellent.

0:09:220:09:26

Oo, doo-oo woo oo-woo. Oo woo-ooo oo doo-oo.

0:09:260:09:28

Small's surprised -

0:09:280:09:30

he didn't think his drawing was good enough to show anyone.

0:09:300:09:33

Oo woo doo woo oo-doo. Oo woo oo doo-oo-oo oo doo.

0:09:330:09:37

"Nonsense," says Mother. She thinks Small is very good.

0:09:370:09:41

They all love looking at his drawings.

0:09:410:09:43

Bla-ra-la-ra-ga-ra-la-bla-ra-la.

0:09:430:09:46

The Soup Dragon is going to make some lovely soup for them,

0:09:460:09:49

to celebrate their clever artist.

0:09:490:09:52

Well, what a good idea!

0:09:520:09:54

-ALL:

-Oo woo doo-oo...

-Oo woo-oo...

-Oo oo-woo oo doo-oo....

0:09:550:09:59

Look at that.

0:10:000:10:02

They're having a nice little party in Small's honour.

0:10:020:10:05

-Oo woo-oo?

-But where IS Small?

0:10:080:10:11

Ribbit. Ribbit.

0:10:110:10:13

Oh. There he is.

0:10:130:10:15

He's busy drawing the froglets.

0:10:170:10:19

Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.

0:10:210:10:24

-ALL:

-Oo WOO-oo!

0:10:240:10:25

Everyone loves his drawings, so now he doesn't mind

0:10:250:10:29

sharing them with his friends.

0:10:290:10:31

Ribbit, ribbit.

0:10:310:10:33

Small looks proud, and so he should be. He's very talented.

0:10:330:10:38

ALL: Oo woo-oo!

0:10:560:10:57

Small is unhappy with his drawing, so he finds a place to practise in peace. Major Clanger discovers some wonderful wall pictures in an underground cave and invites everyone to see them, but it turns out that Small has seen the pictures before.
