There's our planet.

0:00:430:00:45

The planet Earth.

0:00:450:00:47

It's a place with lots and lots of things for people to enjoy -

0:00:470:00:51

and a bit of what you like always does you good.

0:00:510:00:55

And I've no doubt that if we were to

0:00:550:00:57

take ourselves off into the depths of outer space,

0:00:570:01:00

we would find other creatures who also like to enjoy

0:01:000:01:04

a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

0:01:040:01:06

BUZZING Look!

0:01:060:01:08

There's a strange-looking creature buzzing about.

0:01:080:01:11

Let's go and see what it's up to, shall we?

0:01:110:01:14

It's a very strange-looking creature.

0:01:150:01:17

It looks a bit like... Well, bagpipes.

0:01:170:01:21

UPBEAT MUSIC Oh, it's heard something.

0:01:210:01:24

Some music.

0:01:240:01:26

MUSIC CONTINUES

0:01:260:01:28

CLUCKING

0:01:280:01:30

The music's coming from the Iron Chicken's nest.

0:01:300:01:33

Nice. Very jazzy.

0:01:330:01:36

CLUCKS ALONG WITH MUSIC

0:01:360:01:39

The creature seems to like it too.

0:01:390:01:41

Oh! Cluck-oh.

0:01:410:01:43

The Iron Chicken's saying, "hello".

0:01:430:01:46

MUSIC STARTS TO SPEED UP

0:01:470:01:50

Hang on, is it... Is it actually eating the music?

0:01:500:01:54

Sucking it up like a vacuum cleaner?

0:01:540:01:56

MUSIC STOPS

0:01:570:01:59

How peculiar!

0:02:000:02:02

CLANKING

0:02:020:02:04

IRON CHICKEN CLUCKS

0:02:040:02:05

CLUCKS ECHO

0:02:050:02:07

BUZZING

0:02:070:02:10

No, it's not very interested in the cloud.

0:02:160:02:19

I wonder why.

0:02:190:02:21

BUZZING

0:02:210:02:23

Ooh, it's heard some more music.

0:02:230:02:26

GENTLE MUSIC

0:02:260:02:28

This time, the music's coming from the Music Trees.

0:02:280:02:31

MUSIC SPEEDS UP

0:02:360:02:38

Yes, that's exactly what it's doing, it's sucking up music.

0:02:380:02:42

Well, I never.

0:02:420:02:44

And that music bag it has is getting bigger.

0:02:440:02:47

BUZZING

0:02:470:02:49

MUSIC PLAYING

0:02:510:02:53

More music.

0:02:530:02:55

That sounds like Tiny Clanger's flower friends.

0:02:550:02:58

HIGH AND LOW-PITCHED SQUEAKS

0:03:110:03:15

No, it's not interested in Major Clanger.

0:03:150:03:18

Or Granny.

0:03:260:03:28

It wants more music, I think.

0:03:290:03:31

That's all it's interested in.

0:03:310:03:33

And Major's going to follow it to see what it's up to.

0:03:370:03:41

FLOWER FRIENDS SINGING SWEETLY

0:03:420:03:44

Ah, yes, the singing is coming from Tiny's flower friends.

0:03:440:03:49

SINGING CONTINUES

0:03:490:03:51

Interesting. Very interesting.

0:04:000:04:03

It's doing it again! What a surprise for Tiny and Major.

0:04:120:04:16

SINGING SPEEDS UP

0:04:160:04:19

SINGING STOPS

0:04:220:04:24

BUZZING

0:04:240:04:25

Tiny is a bit annoyed.

0:04:320:04:34

She thinks the creature's rather rude,

0:04:340:04:36

slurping her singing friends' music

0:04:360:04:39

without so much as a please or thank you.

0:04:390:04:41

There's Mother Clanger in her garden.

0:04:440:04:46

I wonder what she'll make of the strange creature.

0:04:460:04:49

BUZZING

0:04:490:04:51

BUZZING

0:04:530:04:55

No, it's not very friendly, is it?

0:04:590:05:03

Tiny tells Mother it's a strange, music-eating thing.

0:05:060:05:10

It's seems to quite like the Glow Buzzers.

0:05:120:05:14

Old friends, perhaps?

0:05:140:05:17

MUSIC PLAYING

0:05:170:05:20

Ah, but of course - it's much more interested in music.

0:05:200:05:24

CLUNKING, MUSIC BECOMES MUFFLED

0:05:260:05:29

SCRUNCHING

0:05:290:05:31

Oh, dear. The creature's bag of music is so full,

0:05:310:05:35

it's stuck in the hole.

0:05:350:05:37

POP Ooh! Just squeezed through.

0:05:390:05:42

CLANGING

0:05:440:05:46

The creature's heading off into space

0:05:510:05:53

after the Hoot music.

0:05:530:05:55

HOOT MUSIC PLAYING

0:05:570:05:59

And, of course, the Hoot music is coming from the Hoot planet.

0:06:060:06:10

Yes, Major, there's lots of music to be had up there.

0:06:150:06:19

HOOT MUSIC

0:06:190:06:21

It's doing it again.

0:06:250:06:27

HOOT MUSIC SPEEDS UP

0:06:270:06:30

And that music bag's getting bigger and bigger.

0:06:300:06:33

Major's right - it's sucking up too much music.

0:06:360:06:40

MUSIC STOPS

0:06:420:06:44

And now the creature is so full up with music,

0:06:450:06:48

it can hardly move.

0:06:480:06:50

It's just floating hopelessly in space.

0:06:500:06:53

Yes, quite right, Major - that thing needs help.

0:06:560:07:00

Time to launch the Music Boat.

0:07:020:07:05

MUSIC PLAYING

0:07:160:07:18

Nearly there.

0:07:370:07:38

Hm, what to do now?

0:07:490:07:52

I think Major's had an idea.

0:07:540:07:57

He's telling the creature to blow -

0:07:590:08:01

then it can blow all that music out of its bag.

0:08:010:08:04

But I don't think the creature understands.

0:08:040:08:07

Oh, dear.

0:08:070:08:09

Tiny thinks they should show it how to blow.

0:08:110:08:13

THEY GIGGLE

0:08:160:08:17

BUZZ

0:08:220:08:24

BUZZ

0:08:250:08:27

GARBLED SOUNDS

0:08:310:08:33

PLONK

0:08:460:08:48

Ah, that's done the trick.

0:08:480:08:50

Well, there you go. It's learned how to blow

0:08:500:08:54

and its music bag is back to its normal size again.

0:08:540:08:57

Thank goodness.

0:08:570:08:59

Yes, well done, buzzing thing.

0:09:020:09:04

Perhaps it won't be so greedy in future.

0:09:040:09:06

MUSIC

0:09:060:09:08

The Hoots are celebrating the only way they know how -

0:09:080:09:11

with music.

0:09:110:09:12

That's right - don't start eating music again, you silly thing.

0:09:230:09:27

Just sit and listen.

0:09:270:09:29

HOOT MUSIC CONTINUES

0:09:290:09:31

ALL JOIN IN

0:09:360:09:39

Ooh, no!

0:09:470:09:49

MUSIC STOPS

0:09:500:09:51

But this time, I think the creature is just breathing in.

0:09:510:09:54

BUZZES, INHALES

0:09:540:09:56

MAKES MUSIC

0:09:580:10:01

Breathing in so it can breathe out and sing.

0:10:030:10:06

And what a sweet voice it has too.

0:10:060:10:09

ALL PLAYING AND SINGING

0:10:090:10:12

They do make a lovely sound together.

0:10:190:10:21

Ah, music. That creature certainly likes its music...

0:10:210:10:26

..to eat.

0:10:260:10:28

Is there a lesson to be learned from all this?

0:10:280:10:30

You know, I think there is.

0:10:300:10:33

It's nice to have a bit of what you like, but not too much.

0:10:330:10:37

Woo-ooo!

0:10:560:10:58

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.
