# Playing by the rules

0:00:040:00:08

# Is highly overrated

0:00:080:00:11

# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah!

0:00:110:00:14

# They can't hold us back

0:00:140:00:17

# We'll make the most of every second

0:00:170:00:21

# Unstoppable, unstoppable, yeah!

0:00:210:00:24

# After all is said and done

0:00:240:00:26

# Shout, "One for all and all for fun!"

0:00:260:00:28

# Nothing's gonna bring us down today

0:00:280:00:33

# Open up your eyes The world outside is waiting. #

0:00:330:00:38

I'm sorry to say, children, but I have shocking news.

0:00:500:00:54

Tomorrow, the school inspector will carry out

0:00:540:00:58

a thorough inspection of our school.

0:00:580:01:00

I have to inform you, if he fails us, they will close the school down.

0:01:000:01:05

SHE WAILS

0:01:050:01:08

My wonderful school gone for good!

0:01:080:01:13

Uh, don't cry, Dennis. I'm sure it won't come to that.

0:01:130:01:17

Oh, these are tears of joy, Curly.

0:01:170:01:20

Tears of pure joy!

0:01:200:01:22

Don't you see what this means?

0:01:220:01:24

School's out...for ever!

0:01:240:01:26

Only if it fails the inspection.

0:01:260:01:28

Oh, it's going to fail all right, Pie-Face.

0:01:280:01:31

This calls for an Extraordinary Menace Meeting.

0:01:310:01:34

Usual time and place.

0:01:340:01:36

-So, I've been doing my homework...

-Hah! How often do we hear that?

0:01:360:01:40

This man holds the key to our happiness.

0:01:400:01:42

I give you...the school inspector.

0:01:420:01:46

Hello, my name is Derek Pencils, school inspector,

0:01:460:01:50

-but you can call me...

-SCHOOL CRUMBLES

0:01:500:01:52

The Closing-ator.

0:01:520:01:54

I have closed 30 schools in four years

0:01:540:01:58

and THAT is a record! Hah!

0:01:580:02:00

30 schools! Give that man a medal.

0:02:000:02:03

Watch out or I might close your school n' all.

0:02:030:02:06

KUNG FU YELLS

0:02:060:02:08

I looked him up online. Derek Pencils is totally hardcore.

0:02:080:02:12

He believes in punctual, polite pupils,

0:02:120:02:15

clean classrooms and outstanding academic achievement.

0:02:150:02:19

Wow! Everything Beanotown School doesn't have.

0:02:190:02:23

Ha, ha! It's definitely going to fail!

0:02:230:02:25

Yeah, definitely, but...

0:02:250:02:28

let's give it an extra nudge anyway, just to make sure.

0:02:280:02:32

What'll happen to the school after they close it?

0:02:320:02:34

I heard they're going to turn it into a whopping great funfair.

0:02:340:02:38

Yeah, in your dreams, Curly.

0:02:380:02:40

Just think...this time tomorrow,

0:02:400:02:43

school will be a bad memory.

0:02:430:02:45

THEY SIGH

0:02:450:02:47

Today is do or die day, Dennis,

0:02:510:02:53

so I'm giving the school a lick of paint.

0:02:530:02:55

Want a helping hand, sir?

0:02:550:02:57

Humph! And fall foul of your pranking ways?

0:02:570:03:00

Not likely.

0:03:000:03:02

But, sir, this is the school's hour of need.

0:03:020:03:05

-We're here to help.

-Yeah, make the day run smoothly.

0:03:050:03:08

See it all goes to plan, sir.

0:03:080:03:11

Hmm. Maybe I've misjudged you boys.

0:03:110:03:14

All right, you're on Operation SOS, Save Our School.

0:03:140:03:19

You can lend a helping hand.

0:03:190:03:20

ALL CHEER

0:03:200:03:22

So, THIS is Beanotown School.

0:03:220:03:24

Ahh! Oh, Mr Pencils! Hah! Hmm.

0:03:240:03:28

HE SNIFFS

0:03:280:03:30

I smell closure!

0:03:300:03:32

Oh, it's probably just the drains.

0:03:320:03:34

Can I interest you in a cup of tea?

0:03:340:03:37

A small digestive on the side, perhaps?

0:03:370:03:40

Why not? Closing schools is thirsty work. Brew up, headmaster.

0:03:400:03:43

We'll sup to the demise of Beanotown School.

0:03:430:03:46

Two teas, eh? Time for phase one, Curly -

0:03:460:03:50

the mighty wind.

0:03:500:03:52

Two teas coming up.

0:03:520:03:54

-To my office then.

-Lead on, Macduff.

-Right.

0:03:540:03:58

Who's Macduff?

0:03:580:04:00

This is going to be easy! Right, phase two -

0:04:000:04:03

enter the grasshopper.

0:04:030:04:05

Oh, yeah...

0:04:050:04:06

Grasshoppers primed...

0:04:120:04:14

And ready to hop. Ha, ha!

0:04:140:04:16

Water, milk, tea...

0:04:190:04:23

..fart powder.

0:04:250:04:26

Hmm?

0:04:290:04:30

Fart powder, fart powder, fart powder. Hee, hee!

0:04:300:04:33

Closing schools make me feel good.

0:04:330:04:36

You know what I mean, Detester?

0:04:360:04:38

Makes me feel like I'm doing a good job.

0:04:380:04:40

And I don't mind telling you that this school

0:04:410:04:44

has closure written all over it.

0:04:440:04:48

Punctuality, cleanliness, orderly classrooms -

0:04:480:04:52

that's what I look for,

0:04:520:04:53

and, most importantly, good manners.

0:04:530:04:57

What have you got to say to that, Detester?

0:04:570:04:59

HE PARPS

0:04:590:05:01

Goodness gracious, man!

0:05:010:05:03

I am most terribly sorry.

0:05:030:05:05

-"Disgustingly flatulent headmaster!"

-HE PARPS AGAIN

0:05:050:05:09

Oh! Right, I suppose you'd better show me round this "school".

0:05:090:05:12

Ah, hah!

0:05:130:05:15

Phase three! School runs half an hour late.

0:05:150:05:18

Now for phase four.

0:05:180:05:20

A good dollop of slime...

0:05:210:05:23

Hee, hee, hee!

0:05:230:05:24

Today's lesson,

0:05:240:05:26

the animal kingdom.

0:05:260:05:28

Open your books, please.

0:05:280:05:30

Yuck! CHILDREN SHOUT

0:05:320:05:34

Unless my ears deceive me, that sounds very much like...

0:05:340:05:37

SCREAMING

0:05:370:05:39

Anarchy, headmaster.

0:05:390:05:41

We prefer to call it

0:05:410:05:42

bringing the wild into the classroom!

0:05:420:05:45

You can say that again.

0:05:450:05:47

This is not looking good, Headmaster.

0:05:470:05:48

BELL RINGS

0:05:480:05:50

And that school bell is late.

0:05:500:05:52

CHILDREN LAUGH AND CHEER

0:05:520:05:54

Mr Pencils? MR PENCILS!

0:05:540:05:57

HE HUFFS AND GRUNTS

0:05:590:06:01

I would like to address the entire school in the school hall...NOW!

0:06:010:06:06

A flatulent headmaster,

0:06:060:06:08

chaotic classrooms and slovenly punctuality.

0:06:080:06:11

What next, I wonder?

0:06:110:06:13

I'll tell you what next! It's SLIME TIME!

0:06:130:06:17

Yah!

0:06:170:06:18

HE GROWLS

0:06:200:06:21

This school has failed the inspection!

0:06:210:06:25

After I've signed off the paperwork,

0:06:250:06:27

Beanotown School will be closed...FOREVER!

0:06:270:06:31

-Ha, ha! Result!

-We did it!

0:06:310:06:35

Gentlemen, this has been the menace to end all menaces! Ha, ha!

0:06:350:06:40

Treehouse in one hour.

0:06:400:06:42

Time to start plotting the rest of our lives.

0:06:420:06:46

We're sorry about the school, Dennis.

0:06:470:06:49

Sorry? It's brilliant! Ha, ha!

0:06:490:06:52

Eh, I mean, no, you're right, it's, um, terrible.

0:06:520:06:56

Too right it's terrible. You'll never guess what I've just heard.

0:06:560:06:59

NOOOO!!!

0:06:590:07:04

Ah! Life in the school-free lane! Ha, ha! Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

0:07:040:07:09

This isn't a dream! It's a NIGHTMARE!

0:07:090:07:11

After Beanotown School closes, we're all going to be sent to...

0:07:110:07:15

Drainotown School!

0:07:150:07:17

BOTH: Not Drainotown School!

0:07:170:07:20

BATS CHATTER

0:07:200:07:22

-What have we done?!

-We have to make the inspector change his mind.

0:07:220:07:26

Aye, but how? It's impossible!

0:07:260:07:28

Gnash! Gnash, gnash, gnash!

0:07:280:07:30

Gnash, gnash!

0:07:300:07:32

Not necessarily, Curly.

0:07:330:07:37

HE PUFFS

0:07:370:07:38

We think we might have found a way to save the school, sir.

0:07:380:07:41

Heh, heh, heh!

0:07:420:07:44

Huh? Gnasher?

0:07:440:07:45

He's a bona fide genius.

0:07:450:07:47

-He's a dog!

-He's indognito, disguised as...

0:07:470:07:52

-MR PENCILS:

-Toot, toot!

0:07:520:07:53

SMASHING

0:07:530:07:55

Right, sign here and the real fun begins.

0:07:550:07:59

Oh! Mr School Inspector, what if we showed you

0:07:590:08:03

that this school harboured a budding mastermind?

0:08:030:08:05

Hah! Naturally, if such talent came forward, I might reconsider.

0:08:050:08:10

Introducing Beanotown's star pupil!

0:08:100:08:13

Gna...heh, heh!

0:08:130:08:15

Hmm? All right!

0:08:150:08:16

Hup!

0:08:160:08:17

Lead on, Macduff!

0:08:170:08:19

(Who's Macduff?)

0:08:210:08:22

(I have no idea.)

0:08:220:08:24

We're excellent at archaeology.

0:08:270:08:29

Which, as everyone knows, is the art of digging up bones.

0:08:290:08:33

Gnash, gnash, gnash, gnash, gnash!

0:08:340:08:36

Gnash!

0:08:370:08:39

Not bad, eh?

0:08:400:08:42

Hmm, a lucky fluke!

0:08:420:08:44

We've also got the best football team in Beanotown.

0:08:460:08:49

Gnash!

0:08:490:08:50

Gnash!

0:08:500:08:52

Gnash!

0:08:520:08:54

Whoa!

0:08:540:08:55

I'm impressed, but I do like using my bulldozer

0:08:550:08:59

and, anyway, these aren't core subjects.

0:08:590:09:01

You're right, but

0:09:010:09:03

our star pupil also happens to be a genius at maths.

0:09:030:09:08

Ah, my favourite subject!

0:09:080:09:09

Very well, if he can beat ME at maths,

0:09:090:09:13

I'll tear up the closure form myself.

0:09:130:09:15

Bet you didn't think I were going to say that, did you?

0:09:150:09:18

I'll use my calculator.

0:09:200:09:21

-And he'll used these.

-DENNIS GRUNTS

0:09:210:09:24

What? Sausages? Is this a joke?

0:09:240:09:26

Genius moves in mysterious ways.

0:09:260:09:29

Question one - two plus two.

0:09:300:09:33

That's easy. It's...four.

0:09:330:09:36

Gnash-gnash!

0:09:360:09:37

APPLAUSE

0:09:370:09:38

Uh...next question.

0:09:380:09:40

Einstein's Theory of General Relativity states E = MC...

0:09:410:09:47

-Gnash!

-Squared is the right answer!

0:09:470:09:50

Ha, ha! You've done it, Gnasher!

0:09:500:09:52

THEY CHEER AND APPLAUD

0:09:520:09:54

Not so fast. I came here to close a school.

0:09:540:09:57

I don't like to go home without a bit of rubble on me fingertips.

0:09:570:10:01

One final question - history!

0:10:010:10:04

Who was the famous architect of the Regency Period?

0:10:040:10:09

John...?

0:10:090:10:11

That's what I thought.

0:10:120:10:14

I'm going back to fire up my bulldozer

0:10:140:10:16

-and I'm taking these sausages with me.

-GNASH!

0:10:160:10:19

Huh? John Nash is the right answer.

0:10:190:10:22

THEY CHEER

0:10:220:10:25

Three little words - I will be back.

0:10:250:10:28

-We did it!

-Ha, ha! Gnasher did it!

0:10:300:10:33

Well done, Dennis.

0:10:330:10:35

Thanks to you, Beanotown School won't have to be turned

0:10:350:10:38

into a whopping great funfair.

0:10:380:10:41

ALL: A whopping great funfair!

0:10:410:10:43

What have we done? Ahh! Come back!

0:10:430:10:46

-We're sorry!

-Come back!

0:10:460:10:49

Dennis and his faithful hound Gnasher are out to make every day as much fun as possible, but their adventures often lead them into trouble.

Beanotown school is due a visit from Derek Pencils - the meanest school inspector around, with an impeccable record of closure. Sounds good to the menaces! What could be better than life without Beanotown School? However, their daydreams are soon shattered when Dennis discovers that they'll only be sent to the nightmarish Drainotown School instead. The gang do a quick about-turn and use their menacing magic to make sure their own school stays open - with a little help from star pupil Gnasher, of course.
