Here is our Earth, where, in the deepest oceans and remotest
forests, there are new creatures that we've yet to discover.
New friends, with their own needs and their own special little
ways that we must respect so we may live together in harmony.
And as we travel across the far reaches of space,
we find the Clangers' planet, where they too have their special
little ways, and perhaps new friends to discover as well.
SOFT MUSIC PLAYS
Here's Tiny Clanger, playing music with the music trees.
She does this every day.
It's her routine.
NAUTICAL MUSIC PLAYS Ah, and here's Small Clanger.
-He's been fishing in the music boat.
He does this every day, too.
Granny Clanger always takes a brisk walk before a nap.
This is her little routine.
NAUTICAL MUSIC PLAYS
Oh, look. It's Major Clanger.
He's made a new table!
He's inventing and making new things every day, without fail.
Do-doo-doo do-doo, do-do doo do-do do-doo.
Major wants to replace the old table with his new one.
Do-doo doo doo do-do doo.
Mother quite liked the old one.
-Well, she's willing to give it a try.
-The new table is ready for the best routine of all.
-Everyone loves soup time.
-Doo do-do do, doo.
-And Major's new table.
Oh, dear. Major's new table isn't strong enough.
Do, do-do doo.
Do, do-doo doo do-do. Doo do-do-do, doo do.
Mother Clanger knows what to do.
Tiny and Small must go and get more soup,
while she and Major clean up the mess.
Off they go to see the Soup Dragon, for more soup.
# Do-do-do, doo doo do-dooo doo. Do-do-do, doo doo do-doo doo.
The same way every day.
Whistling their harmonious little tune.
# Do-do-do doo-do doo do-do do-do-do. Do-do-do...
Oh, what a tumble!
-Do-do-do doo do-do.
-Doo, do-do doo.
Phew! They're both OK.
But the soup trolley isn't.
Peculiar. It's a bump on the ground.
Doo... Do-do do doo.
-Do doo do-do do doo.
-Small's right. It must be a new bump
because they travel down the tunnel every day for soup
and have never noticed it before.
Do, do-do doo do-do doo!
Yes, that's for the best.
So they'll never trip over it again.
-Job well done! BOTH:
Ah, that's right!
They'd better get the soup trolley back to the living cave
so it can be fixed.
Look at that!
Good to see the old table back in use again,
back where it belongs.
-Do-do doo, doo doo.
-Mother Clanger is most concerned.
She wants to know what happened, and if they're OK.
Doo! Do-do doo, doo.
They tell Mother Clanger they're fine,
but that's more than can be said for the soup trolley.
Doo... Do-doo do, do doo.
Major is going to fetch his tools.
Ah. Well done, Mother Clanger.
Woo! Do-do doo, do.
Yes, it really is time to get soup.
Woo-doo do-do. Do-doo, do-do-doo.
They're going to follow Tiny and Small to make sure they're OK.
Major's taking his tools, just in case.
# Do-do-do doo do, do doo-oo, doo-oo...
-Here they go again.
-# Do-do doo doo-oo...
Whistling their harmonious little tune.
# Do-do-do doo-do, doo
-# Do... # Ooo!
-Oh, my word!
The soup trolley's fallen over again!
-Thank goodness they're all right.
Do doo, do-oo doo.
Small explains that they flattened the bump down earlier.
The bump that caused them to crash.
Dooo, do-do doo-oo.
Yes, it is back again.
Woo. Do-doo doo. Doo-do.
Since Mother fixed the wheel again, Major is going to fix the bump.
Hmm... I wonder if the bump wants to be fixed.
-Well, will you look at that!
So, this little mole-creature
has been burrowing across the tunnel floor.
Woo! Do-doo! Do, do-do doo.
It is indeed where the bump came from!
Oo-oo do doo-oo.
None of the Clangers have seen such a creature before.
Looks very busy,
and knows where it's going!
What a hungry little thing!
Major is thinking...
Ooo do-do woo-oo do doo, oo-doo.
Woo do-doo-oo. Woo do-do woo-oo-oo. Woo-oo.
The Clangers use the tunnel every day to get soup, and the little
creature uses the tunnel for flowers for its food, too.
Woo-oo, do woo-oo woo-oo, woo do doo-oo.
They can't keep bumping into each other, that would be rude!
Doo-oo oo! Oo, do-oo?
No, I don't think they can fly over it on the soup trolley.
Woo-wooo, doo doo oo-woo. Doo, doo-doo!
But Tiny has given Major an idea.
Whoop-whoop-whoop do do-oo doo-oo!
He tells the others to get the soup and meet him back in the tunnel.
So, as Tiny, Small and Mother
head to the soup wells for soup...
..Major Clanger works on his idea.
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!
Yes, time to take the soup back to the living cave.
-Another bump in the road!
-Do-do oo, oo!
Whoop-oo doo-doo doo-oo.
Here's Major, and he thinks he has the solution!
-Will you look at that!
It's a little bridge made out of his broken table.
The bridge is a complete success!
Boo-doo do-oo, do-do doo-oo, oo.
So, whenever they see a bump inside the tunnel,
Major can lay down his bridge and they can both proceed in harmony.
Yes! Hooray indeed!
Well, that certainly calls for a soup celebration!
So, the Clangers came up with the perfect solution, so they and the
little creature could live and work side-by-side in perfect harmony.
You can certainly learn a lot from a Clanger.
The new table Major has made collapses, spilling soup everywhere. Tiny and Small are sent off to fetch some more soup, but the soup trolley crashes into a new bump in the path on the way to the soup wells. Major finds a new use for his collapsed table.
