Planet Earth. A place full of sights and sounds.

0:00:400:00:44

Oh, and smells, of course.

0:00:440:00:46

From big powerful smells to light floaty smells

0:00:460:00:51

that wander from here to there.

0:00:510:00:53

And if we followed our noses out into space,

0:00:530:00:55

I wonder what new smells we might find,

0:00:550:00:59

perhaps here, down on the Clangers' planet.

0:00:590:01:03

Here's Mother Clanger, watering the flowers in her garden.

0:01:030:01:06

Hmm...

0:01:070:01:08

This flower hasn't opened yet.

0:01:080:01:11

But it looks like it's about to.

0:01:110:01:13

Would you look at that?

0:01:200:01:22

Mother thinks the flower looks wonderful.

0:01:260:01:28

Tiny and Small are off for a spot of fishing.

0:01:330:01:36

It's certainly a nice day for it.

0:01:360:01:38

SHE SNIFFS

0:01:380:01:39

Hmm. Tiny can smell something unusual.

0:01:420:01:46

HE SNIFFS

0:01:480:01:51

HE CONTINUES SNIFFING

0:01:570:01:59

The smell is coming from Mother's garden down below.

0:02:040:02:08

A rather bad smell at that!

0:02:090:02:12

Now, what's Major up to?

0:02:120:02:15

Ah! An old bucket with a leaky hole.

0:02:150:02:18

That ought to do the trick.

0:02:280:02:29

Major is wondering what Tiny and Small are up to.

0:02:410:02:45

Only one way to find out.

0:02:450:02:47

Here come Tiny and Small on the trail of that peculiar smell.

0:02:530:02:58

Ah, the perfect chance for Mother to show off her new flower.

0:02:590:03:04

THEY SNIFF

0:03:120:03:13

HE SNIFFS

0:03:150:03:18

Oh, my! It's Mother's new flower. That's what smells so bad.

0:03:180:03:23

SHE SNIFFS

0:03:270:03:30

Mother can smell it too, now.

0:03:320:03:35

The flower is so pretty, she hadn't noticed.

0:03:350:03:37

Oh, dear. Mother is sad that no-one likes her flower.

0:03:490:03:53

That's odd...

0:03:560:03:57

Mother's garden just got a lot darker.

0:04:000:04:02

Yes, something must be blocking the light.

0:04:050:04:08

IRON CHICKEN CLUCKS

0:04:120:04:15

Ah, there's the Iron Chicken, tidying her nest.

0:04:150:04:18

IRON CHICKEN EXCLAIMS

0:04:200:04:23

Oh! Watch out.

0:04:230:04:24

Where was that sky moo going in such a hurry?

0:04:280:04:31

Look! Sky moos. Two of them,

0:04:420:04:46

blocking the light to Mother's garden.

0:04:460:04:49

And here comes another!

0:04:490:04:50

CLUCKING

0:04:530:04:54

The Iron Chicken's in a bit of a flap.

0:04:560:04:58

The Iron Chicken explains that a sky moo flew past her nest

0:05:030:05:06

in a terrible rush and sent her spinning.

0:05:060:05:10

THEY SNIFF

0:05:130:05:15

Tiny thinks the sky moos like the smell of Mother's new flower.

0:05:190:05:23

Major doesn't think that's very likely. The flower smells awful!

0:05:250:05:29

SKY MOO SNIFFS

0:05:340:05:35

Mother thinks Tiny is right.

0:05:410:05:43

The Clangers don't like the smell, but the sky moos might.

0:05:430:05:47

Yes, that does make sense.

0:05:490:05:53

Well, that's that mystery solved, eh, Major?

0:05:530:05:55

Tiny wants to know what's wrong.

0:06:030:06:06

She thought Mother would be glad that somebody likes her flower.

0:06:060:06:09

Ah.

0:06:130:06:15

If the sky moos stay here for good,

0:06:150:06:17

Mother's garden won't get the light it needs to grow.

0:06:170:06:20

Ah. Small's asking the sky moo to move.

0:06:290:06:32

But I don't think that sky moo wants to move.

0:06:340:06:37

Small's certainly trying very hard to move the sky moo.

0:06:410:06:44

Yes, Major and the Iron Chicken are right. Small does need some help.

0:06:510:06:55

And they're going to try and help him.

0:07:000:07:02

But the sky moos just won't budge.

0:07:050:07:08

Tiny thinks they should carry the flower up to the surface instead.

0:07:140:07:18

That'd get the sky moos away from the hole.

0:07:180:07:21

Good point, Major.

0:07:230:07:25

If they carry the flower through the living cave,

0:07:250:07:27

the smell will get everywhere.

0:07:270:07:29

Mother thinks there might be another way.

0:07:360:07:39

Oh, look - Major's bucket.

0:07:450:07:48

Didn't take long for that to come in handy!

0:07:480:07:51

Look at that! Small is going fishing after all.

0:08:000:08:03

This looks like a very well-organised plan.

0:08:210:08:24

Steady... Steady...

0:08:360:08:39

Here it comes...

0:08:540:08:55

They've done it!

0:09:000:09:01

Phew! That was hair-raising stuff.

0:09:150:09:18

Yes, Mother's idea was very clever.

0:09:470:09:50

Now the sky moos can enjoy the flower without getting in the way.

0:09:500:09:54

But Small is worried that the sky moos might never go home, now.

0:10:000:10:04

The Iron Chicken thinks she can help with that.

0:10:090:10:12

And so, the Iron Chicken carries mother's flower through

0:10:160:10:20

the cosmos, en route to the sky moos' planet.

0:10:200:10:24

What a nice gift from Mother Clanger.

0:10:250:10:29

How funny!

0:10:290:10:30

A smell the Clangers didn't like was loved by the sky moos.

0:10:300:10:35

SKY MOOS MOO

0:10:350:10:36

Isn't it nice that we like different things?

0:10:360:10:39

Mother Clanger has grown a beautiful new flower. But when Tiny, Small and Major see it they realise it is the source of the horrible smell they have been experiencing.
