Good morning, Robots!
What a wonderful dream! I've simply got to tell somebody about it.
-I had this wonderful dream last night.
I dreamt I built this giant sculpture, a work of art.
-And I've decided to make my dream come true.
I'm going to build a giant sculpture
and make our world a brighter, lovelier, spottier place.
-But I need your help, Tiny.
-Help with what exactly?
My work of art, Tiny! First stop, Stretchy's yard.
-You do the talking, Tiny.
-Why can't you ask?
Because I'm the artist and you're my assistant.
-Please, could we have some of your junk?
Spotty wants to make a giant sculpture.
Uh... (What for, Spotty?)
To make the Little Robot world a brighter, lovelier, spottier place.
-We don't need a pile of junk in our way.
-It won't be a pile of junk.
-It will be a work of art.
-You can't make art out of junk.
TINY HUFFS AND PUFFS
-Yes, I'm going to build it right here.
-Build what right here?
-My giant work of art.
-But it'll be right outside my locker room.
I know. You're a VERY lucky robot.
-What's this giant sculpture going to look like?
-I haven't decided.
I'm just going to start creating and see what takes shape. ..Tiny!
Pass me that big bolt, will you?
-I'm going as fast as I can, Spotty.
# It's very, very beautiful
# As big as it can be
# It's large and round and covered in spots, it's just like me. #
Is it finished, Spotty?
Of course it isn't. It's going to be much bigger than this.
-Watch out, Spotty!
-It's going to fall.
-Run after it, then, Tiny!
-I'll never catch it. My legs aren't long enough.
-You're so tiny, Tiny!
See? I told you I could make art out of junk.
What a monstrosity!
And it's right outside MY house.
Tiny, pass me up that handle.
-I really need a taller assistant.
-I'm trying my best, Spotty.
Stretchy, dear, pass me that handle.
I'm sorry, some of us have proper jobs. I'm expecting a delivery.
Work of art!
Will you help me, Sporty? You're tall.
Sorry, but I'm going for my run. Tiny is helping you.
-He's no good for a big job like this.
-Well, you don't need me, then.
Well, I'll just have to finish it myself.
# It's very, very beautiful As big as it can be
# It's large and round and covered in spots, just like me!
# La-la, la-la, la-la-la... #
Hup, hup, hup, hup, hup.
You didn't say the sculpture was going to be a giant version of YOU!
I didn't PLAN it that way.
-Isn't it wonderful?
-To tell you the truth,
-it's rather big and...
-The bigger, the better.
I'm going to have an unveiling ceremony. You will be there?
-Of course - I live here!
I must keep going. It's not big enough yet.
-Oh! Hup, hup, hup, hup...
Spotty loves her work of art, so we could put it outside HER house.
-It's too big to shift.
-It can't stay outside MY front door.
What am I going to do?
-Tell Spotty it's ugly junk that has to come down.
-I can't do that.
To Spotty, it's a work of art. I don't want to hurt her feelings.
Ohh. What'll we do about it, then?
I don't know. Let's sleep on it and decide in the morning.
-Nearly bedtime, Tiny?
-That's right, Stretchy.
-Why do I always fall over?
You're too tiny for the lever, Tiny.
I seem to be too tiny to do ANYTHING!
Oh, dear. Did I say something wrong?
-Hiya, hiya, hup, hup, hup!
-Uhh! It's morning!
-Yes, Sporty, it's been morning for ages.
That thing's blocking out all the daylight.
-How will I know when it's time for my early-morning run?
Time for the unveiling ceremony.
Little Robots, welcome!
As the artist, it gives me great pleasure
to unveil my new work of art.
It's called... Big, Beautiful Spotty Robot.
You can clap now.
Oh! Oh, no, no, no! My beautiful sculpture!
-What a relief!
-Never mind, Spotty.
Don't cry. You'll rust up.
It was such a wonderful work of art!
Now I'll have to build it again!
-What? Don't build it here!
-I mean, er...
-Don't build such a big one next time.
-Make it nice and small.
-As small as you can.
It was just a silly dream.
I'll never be a real artist.
-Of course you will be.
You just need a tiny bit of help.
-Who else wants one?
-Just about every Little Robot you can think of.
And Stretchy wants another two.
Making these little works of art was such a wonderful idea of yours!
I must make you a special one to thank you.
-That would be lovely, Spotty.
-Of course, as you're so VERY tiny,
you'll need a tiny one to match.
The tinier the better, I always say.
-The tinier the better.
