There's our planet.
The planet Earth.
It's a place with lots and lots of things for people to enjoy -
and a bit of what you like always does you good.
And I've no doubt that if we were to
take ourselves off into the depths of outer space,
we would find other creatures who also like to enjoy
a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
There's a strange-looking creature buzzing about.
Let's go and see what it's up to, shall we?
It's a very strange-looking creature.
It looks a bit like... Well, bagpipes.
UPBEAT MUSIC Oh, it's heard something.
The music's coming from the Iron Chicken's nest.
Nice. Very jazzy.
CLUCKS ALONG WITH MUSIC
The creature seems to like it too.
The Iron Chicken's saying, "hello".
MUSIC STARTS TO SPEED UP
Hang on, is it... Is it actually eating the music?
Sucking it up like a vacuum cleaner?
IRON CHICKEN CLUCKS
No, it's not very interested in the cloud.
I wonder why.
Ooh, it's heard some more music.
This time, the music's coming from the Music Trees.
MUSIC SPEEDS UP
Yes, that's exactly what it's doing, it's sucking up music.
Well, I never.
And that music bag it has is getting bigger.
That sounds like Tiny Clanger's flower friends.
HIGH AND LOW-PITCHED SQUEAKS
No, it's not interested in Major Clanger.
It wants more music, I think.
That's all it's interested in.
And Major's going to follow it to see what it's up to.
FLOWER FRIENDS SINGING SWEETLY
Ah, yes, the singing is coming from Tiny's flower friends.
Interesting. Very interesting.
It's doing it again! What a surprise for Tiny and Major.
SINGING SPEEDS UP
Tiny is a bit annoyed.
She thinks the creature's rather rude,
slurping her singing friends' music
without so much as a please or thank you.
There's Mother Clanger in her garden.
I wonder what she'll make of the strange creature.
No, it's not very friendly, is it?
Tiny tells Mother it's a strange, music-eating thing.
It's seems to quite like the Glow Buzzers.
Old friends, perhaps?
Ah, but of course - it's much more interested in music.
CLUNKING, MUSIC BECOMES MUFFLED
Oh, dear. The creature's bag of music is so full,
it's stuck in the hole.
POP Ooh! Just squeezed through.
The creature's heading off into space
after the Hoot music.
HOOT MUSIC PLAYING
And, of course, the Hoot music is coming from the Hoot planet.
Yes, Major, there's lots of music to be had up there.
It's doing it again.
HOOT MUSIC SPEEDS UP
And that music bag's getting bigger and bigger.
Major's right - it's sucking up too much music.
And now the creature is so full up with music,
it can hardly move.
It's just floating hopelessly in space.
Yes, quite right, Major - that thing needs help.
Time to launch the Music Boat.
Hm, what to do now?
I think Major's had an idea.
He's telling the creature to blow -
then it can blow all that music out of its bag.
But I don't think the creature understands.
Tiny thinks they should show it how to blow.
Ah, that's done the trick.
Well, there you go. It's learned how to blow
and its music bag is back to its normal size again.
Yes, well done, buzzing thing.
Perhaps it won't be so greedy in future.
The Hoots are celebrating the only way they know how -
That's right - don't start eating music again, you silly thing.
Just sit and listen.
HOOT MUSIC CONTINUES
ALL JOIN IN
But this time, I think the creature is just breathing in.
Breathing in so it can breathe out and sing.
And what a sweet voice it has too.
ALL PLAYING AND SINGING
They do make a lovely sound together.
Ah, music. That creature certainly likes its music...
Is there a lesson to be learned from all this?
You know, I think there is.
It's nice to have a bit of what you like, but not too much.
A strange flying creature visits the Clangers' planet and starts eating up any music it can find - until the sounds of the Hoot Planet prove too much for it to swallow.
