Planet Earth - a place of wonder,
full of useful inventions to help us with our busy lives.
And if we were to travel across the vastness of space, we might find
other planets, like this one, where busy lives need a little help, too.
Ah, here's Tiny and Small, busy polishing the music boat.
Oh, and there's Mother Clanger busy in her garden.
What a lot of clipping she has.
Granny Clanger's busy, too.
She's knitted a little balaclava for a froglet.
Two more balaclavas, please, Granny.
Yes, all the Clangers are busy. BANGING
None more so than Major, by the sounds of it.
Oh, look. He's made a rather useful-looking trolley.
Oh, I wonder who that could be?
That looks like Major's new trolley.
My word, how clever.
Mother is most impressed.
How kind indeed.
Major has given the trolley to Mother as a present.
It's perfect for the garden.
It goes when you move the joystick and it's simple to steer.
How very useful indeed.
And now she's driving the trolley.
Driving it over Major's foot! Ouch!
Mother's very sorry indeed.
Oh, dear. It's a bit squashed.
But Mother thinks that with a little rest, it'll be as right as rain.
Major's having none of it. He's too busy to rest.
I think rest is for the best.
Mother's right. A cold step isn't the best place to rest.
Tiny and Small are off to get more cotton balls to polish with.
Oh, look. Good thinking, Mother Clanger.
She's really got the hang of the trolley now.
Everyone is most concerned and very interested in the new trolley.
As Mother explains what happened, Major still thinks he's fine.
What a kind thought.
Granny has offered Major her puffball to sit on.
Yes, best not touch.
Major must relax and get better.
Whilst everyone else gets on with their jobs.
What a good idea. If Major needs help, he should just ring the bell.
False alarm. Major's just practising.
Sometimes it's not easy to just relax.
BELL RINGS Ah, that sounds like Major's bell.
Poor Major can't relax.
His foot aches too much.
What a great idea, Tiny.
A little light music always helps you relax.
Tiny's gone to fetch the singing flowers.
Good idea. A little reviving soup might help, too.
Small must get some right away.
Right, to the garden.
Major wants something to prop his foot up with. Something soft.
So mother's going to get something.
Oh, and there goes Small to get the soup.
Here comes the music.
Everyone is very busy looking after Major.
GENTLE MUSIC PLAYS
And here comes Major's foot rest.
Perfect. Now Major has everything he needs.
Major's foot is a bit hot. He wants Mother to get his fan to cool it.
Granny's sympathetic but she worries that everyone is helping Major,
rather than doing their own jobs.
Yes, Major might be a lot happier if he could do things for himself
while he was relaxing.
Ah, there's Major's fan.
But what is Mother doing now?
Curiouser and curiouser.
Will you look at that?
Yes, Major's trolley really is the perfect Clanger carrier now.
Ah, I see where this is going.
Yes, stand well back.
Major is a Clanger trolley natural.
Major thanks everyone for their help
and now everyone can get on with their jobs again.
Major can't wait to help Mother gather her cuttings.
Yes. Sometimes we all need
a little help with our busy lives.
Major helped Mother with his invention
and Mother helped Major with hers.
Three more balaclavas please, Granny.
