-Not the shrinking cap, Grandpa!
Catch me if you can!
Come down, Grandpa!
'We love Sunnysands
'because it's sunny and it's sandy and it's right by the sea.
'We love playing on the beach
'and we love staying at the Mill on the Marsh, too.
'Today, Uncle CJ and Auntie Jules had gone out with Elsie,
'so I was playing with Grandpa.'
Ha-ha! Three golden galaxies for me.
'We were playing the Captain Dumbletwit board game,
'but we weren't quite alone.'
# With a little bit of luck... #
'Great Aunt Loretta, that's Grandpa's sister,
'was doing some cleaning.'
-Do you have to, Loretta?
-It's all right for you,
sitting there on your big backside
all day, we've got last-minute guests coming, remember?
-Oh, yes, a grandfather and his grandson.
'And just then, the doorbell went.'
There they are now.
You hide the muck sucker, Josh.
I wish CJ and Jules hadn't gone out,
Loretta looking after our guests is just asking for trouble.
'Great Aunt Loretta showed the new guests in.'
Grandad Godfrey and grandson Matty.
-Welcome to the Mill on the Marsh.
-How do you do?
What a delightful place!
This is Grandpa.
He has lots of lie downs, so he shouldn't bother you.
-Hi, I'm Josh.
'Just then, Matty saw the Dumbletwit game.'
-You like Captain Dumbletwit!
-Oh, yes, we're great fans.
-So are we!
It's the best cartoon out there. We even dress up and act out
-Captain Dumbletwit stories.
-That's what they do.
-Two peas in a pod, you are.
-I've got a Captain Dumbletwit costume.
Fantastic! I've got a Diabolical Dave costume.
-It's in his suitcase.
-I'll show you.
I'll tell you what, I'll go and put on my Captain Dumbletwit
costume and then we can act out a story together.
-The children will love it.
-And so will we.
-I'll get my costume out now.
-'My grandpa went to get changed
'and Matty's grandpa went to unlock his case.'
Don't do it yet, wait a minute.
-I haven't finished your welcome.
Allow me to present your complimentary welcome drink.
I prepared it myself, especially, earlier.
Green gloop. Yum.
'Green gloop is a spinach and sprout shake, and it tastes disgusting!
'Matty didn't like the smell of it all.'
Drink up, I'll hang up your coat.
Oh! Well, I'd ever... You really are like two peas in a pod.
Grandpa has got a cap just like this. Look, I'll show you.
-There we are, look.
Identical. You can't tell them apart.
'This was a disaster!
'I had to do something or there was going to be...'
Please stop it, give it to me.
'Great Aunt Loretta wouldn't give me Grandpa's cap.'
-Oh, I'm sorry.
-No! Great Aunt Loretta!
'Then, Grandpa came back.'
What are you doing, Loretta? Give me back my cap.
Captain Dumbletwit to the rescue, eh?
-Catch me if you can!
-You're being ridiculous.
'She knocked over the case and the key fell out of the padlock.'
The key fell out of the padlock!
The key has fell out of the padlock? What, where?
'Then she kicked the key into the mouse hole.'
She kicked the key into the mouse hole!
Kicked the key into the mouse hole? Oh, no! Now I can't unlock our case.
-We've got our holiday clothes in it.
-And the stuff for the beach.
Not to mention my Diabolical Dave costume.
This is all your fault, Grandpa,
making such a fuss about your stupid cap.
I was only having a bit of fun. Here, take it.
'Grandpa was cross, and so was Grandad Godfrey.'
-Aren't you going to try to get it out?
Can't get it out from there, it's dark and dusty,
and there is a ginormous mouse in there.
Ugh! I hate mice, me.
But...but...but I've got to get into my case.
We haven't got any other clothes.
-Our toothbrushes are in there.
-I'll sort it.
Come on, I'll show you up to your rooms.
-No, on second thought, I think I'll put you downstairs.
I hadn't realised you were so old.
I knew she would cause trouble!
-Never mind, I can still get the key back.
-By being small.
Not the shrinking, Grandpa!
'But this time Grandpa didn't shrink.'
-You've got the wrong cap!
Grandad Godfrey has got a cap exactly like yours.
Great Aunt Loretta swapped them over.
-Well, we better swap them back again, and fast!
-Don't worry, I'll go.
'So I ran to Grandad Godfrey's bedroom...'
'..where Great Aunt Loretta was trying to unlock the case with
'a knitting needle.'
-Please, leave it to me.
-No, no, no, I can manage.
No, if this doesn't work, I will break it open with a hammer.
'I knocked on the door.
'And Great Aunt Loretta said...'
-Oh, go away, Josh, we're busy.
-But it's about the cap.
Be off with you! And stop bothering the guests.
'I rushed back to Grandpa.'
-Sorry, Great Aunt Loretta wouldn't even let me in the room.
We've got to do something. Godfrey mustn't put on
-my shrinking cap.
-Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Grandad Godfrey and his grandson, they are so fed up about the
case that they are moving to another hotel, and it is all your fault!
They can't leave, we've made friends and Godfrey has got my cap.
Will you stop going on about your wretched cap?
You never even wear it.
Run after them, Josh, don't let them leave!
'But they were already on their way.'
I was so looking forward to playing Captain Dumbletwit
with Grandpa, too. It is such a pity.
Stop, stop, please don't go!
Look, it's a lovely place, but I'm afraid we don't want to stay.
I'm sorry, but I have made up my mind.
Not the shr... cap.
-What's the matter?
-The cap is the wrong one.
Oh, sorry, I didn't notice. Here.
'I had it at last!'
-Please don't go to another hotel, I'll get the key for you.
-It's right under the floorboards.
-And there's a ginormous mouse!
He's very friendly, he might even help us.
Just stay right there, I will be back in a few minutes.
Shrinking cap, Grandpa.
Catch me if you can!
'You know what happens when Grandpa shrinks -
'he runs about so fast, he is impossible to catch.'
'He can get into things
'and he can get under things.
'He loves driving Jason's toy car...
'..and the Sunnysands train
'and Gordon the seagull.'
'Sometimes he hovers about in my helicopter.
'And he has even been known to fly the Captain Dumbletwit spaceship.
'But he didn't use any of those things today
'because he was going under the floorboards.'
Captain Dumbletwit to the rescue!
'So, Grandpa went to look for the suitcase key.'
Ah, there it is!
'But someone wasn't going to let him have it.'
-'It was the mouse of the mill.
'Grandpa was taking ages! I was starting to worry about him.
'The mouse of the mill was chasing Grandpa up and down and round about.
'Grandad Godfrey and Matty came in.'
-What is going on here? Have you found that key yet?
'And then Grandpa decided to chase the mouse up
'and down and round about.
'Until at last it ran off.'
Oh, I'm getting a bit old for all this.
-Where is your grandpa?
-Gone for a little lie down, I expect.
-I could do with one myself.
-Did you hear that, Grandad?
It must be the ginormous mouse.
'Just then, the ginormous mouse threw the key out of the hole.'
That is an amazing mouse you've got there.
'If Grandpa came out of the hole, his secret would be out.
'I had to get our guests to leave the room.'
You are going to stay, aren't you?
-I'd really like it, and I know Grandpa would too.
-So would we.
-Wouldn't we, Matty?
-Brilliant! Why don't you start unpacking?
In your bedroom.
Like, right now.
Righto! After you.
'So Grandad Godfrey and Matty went back to their rooms to unpack.'
You can come out, Grandpa, it's safe.
Cap off, quick.
Mission accomplished! I returned the key and our guests decided to stay.
-Teamwork, I call it.
-It's totally teamwork!
You're up now, that's good. Your ginormous mouse is amazing!
-He rescued the suitcase key.
Yes, he's very well-trained.
'And then, Grandad Godfrey came in.'
-There you are, Captain Dumbletwit!
-Oh, no, not Diabolical Dave!
-Yes, I know!
Oh, by the way, thank you for unmuddling the caps.
-It's just an ordinary old thing, but it's very precious to me.
I'm so glad you decided to say.
Well, I couldn't miss out on the chance to act out
a Captain Dumbletwit story.
Diabolical Dave invades Wuffletoff with his alien poodles!
-Captain Dumbletwit, off to save the universe!
-Some people never grow up.
Off to save the universe!
I'm coming to get you, Diabolical Dave!
When Grandad Godfrey comes to stay at the Mill on the Marsh with his grandson, it turns out that they are huge Captain Dumbletwit fans, just like Josh and Grandpa. What is more, both grandfathers own identical black caps, with one exception - only Grandpa's cap is magic.
Great Aunt Loretta mixes the caps up, so when Grandpa needs to shrink to rescue the suitcase key that's fallen down the mousehole, the cap doesn't work. Josh has to swap the caps back before their guests find out. However, they're about to leave as they are not happy with Great Aunt Loretta's bizarre hospitality.
Josh finally succeeds in retrieving the magic cap. Grandpa quickly shrinks and finds the lost key so that Grandad Godfrey can open his suitcase. Much happier, the guests decide to stay. Grandpa comes back to his normal size and they all play Captain Dumbletwit game together.
