# Under a pile of scrap There lay this little chap
# He had a broken arm But he made it good
# Then fixed his friends Like robots should
-# Little Robots,
# There's Tiny, Messy Sporty, Stretchy
-# Rusty, Stripy, Noisy, Spotty Scary...
-..Flappy the Bat
# The Sparky Twins, and that's that
-# Little Robots,
# They made a world from junk
# With a bang, a twang and a clunk
# They built their homes Round the Nut 'n' Bolt Tree
-# Now turn on the sunshine...
-# Little Robots,
# Little Robots! #
-(Yes! She hasn't seen me.)
That's what I call a good scaring!
I was not scared. I tripped over your silly rail here.
I only came to say hello and what happens? I find an unsafe home.
It's not unsafe. It's...um...theatrical.
You shouldn't jump out at robots. It's unsafe too.
-That's what I do.
-It's worrying. You should give a warning first.
Huh, a warning! Ridiculous! That would ruin the scary surprise.
-What are you doing here?
-What does it look like?
-I'm collecting junk for my junk pile.
-You've piled it so high.
All that junk could topple over and squash someone.
I was collecting junk before you knew how to roll up into a ball.
I know what I'm doing.
Everything round here is so unsafe.
I'm only trying to help. Tiny will know what I'm talking about.
(Spotty! Up here!)
Tiny, you think we could be a bit more careful, don't you?
(Ssh! I'm hiding from Messy.
(We're playing hide-and-seek.)
Tiny, hold on! You're not wearing your harness. What if you fall?
(I won't fall, Spotty. I know what I'm doing. Now, ssh
-(or Messy will find me.)
Oh, Spotty, you've ruined our game.
I did not. I just think you're all doing things that aren't very safe.
-Am I the only one who worries?
-There's nothing to worry about.
OK. Your turn to hide.
That's the second time I've been knocked over today.
-Why didn't you stop when I told you?
That's no excuse. It's time someone learned to be more careful.
Right! Part of being careful is listening to what people say,
so I want you to...SIT!
Mm! What about...roll over?!
-I found you, Messy.
-You didn't hide very well, did you?
-That's very good, Spotty.
-Messy's supposed to be doing it, not me!
It's hard to get Messy to do anything,
-except play hide-and-seek.
-Come on, Messy.
That didn't get me far.
I won't be put off. I still think we all need to be safer and...
I know what I'm going to do about it.
I can see everyone
and everything from up here.
Look out, Little Robots, it's Lookout Spotty.
I've got him this time. Ha-ha!
Scary, no! That's not safe.
You've ruined my scary surprise.
I told you to give a warning. Messy might have panicked
-and run straight into someone... again.
Stretchy, don't jab that pole in your junk pile. It's dangerous.
I've told you. When it comes to junk, I know what I'm doing.
Tiny is hiding in your junk pile.
-You might damage him.
-I won't. I know exactly where Tiny's hiding.
-Tiny! It's not safe to hide in the junk pile.
It could topple on you and you might get damaged.
Spotty, please be quiet.
Um...Tiny is not hiding in my junk pile.
Yes, he is. I can see him from here.
In fact, I can see all of you. That's why I'm up here.
What I see is very worrying.
You wouldn't have found me if it hadn't been for Spotty.
Sorry, Tiny. I tried to stop her.
I know. Once Spotty gets going, she's hard to stop.
Stretchy, I'm watching you!
Oh, that's it! I've had enough.
Spotty's driving me potty. I'm trying to do my sorting
and every time she interferes.
She wants us all to be safe,
but we won't get anything done with her watching us.
-Come on, Stretchy!
Oh, you've had enough of Spotty too, I see.
I know you're worried about us not being safe Little Robots,
but we ARE safe and we know what we're doing.
Please stop shouting at us and come down.
But you're not being safe.
-ALL: Oh, yes, we are.
-Oh, no, you're not.
-ALL: Oh, yes, we are.
-Oh, come on down.
Oh, all right, then. Wait there!
Oh! Ooh! OH!
-Get on with it, Spotty. We're waiting.
-What do you mean you can't?
I'm too high up and I can't get down.
Oh, dear. She means it.
Spotty's scared all right.
Trust me. I know when someone's scared.
-What are we going to do?
-Don't worry, Spotty. Stay where you are.
Oh, I'm not going anywhere.
-I'm coming to get you.
Now, Spotty, it's very easy.
Just one foot after the other.
I can't. I'm the wrong shape. My legs are too short. I'm too round.
-Nonsense. You climbed up, didn't you?
-Yes, but I didn't notice
how wobbly it was then... and now I do.
Just do what I do.
One foot, then the other...then you'll be down before you know it.
I'll try. AH! I can't do it. It's too wobbly.
I'll stay up here. I've got a wonderful view.
-No, no, no, no need for any help. Thank you.
-Have you got her, Tiny?
-Is she coming down?
-No, not yet.
-Do you want one of us to come up?
No, I don't think so. Let's see what she does next.
-Don't do that! No!
No, Messy. Stay!
Stay! Stop climbing up. Hide-and-seek is finished.
-What's going on?
Well, at least Spotty's down now.
-It's the third time I've been knocked to the ground.
And you thought we were the ones who weren't safe?!
Well...perhaps now is not the time.
Scary has got a point, Spotty.
You know, in a funny sort of way, Messy did save you.
-Oh, all right.
Thank you, Messy.
Please, can everyone try just to be a bit more careful?
-We promise, Spotty.
-We know what we're doing, Spotty.
-We are safe and happy Little Robots.
That's what I wanted all along. Thank you.

Spotty has decided that the Little Robot world is a bit lax in safety terms and starts checking everything to ensure that standards are lifted. Scary will have to issue safety warnings at the Ghost Train, Stretchy is not to pile his junk so high and Tiny is just not safe up the Nut and Bolt Tree without his harness. Spotty climbs high to survey the Little Robot world - only to find out that she is afraid of heights and Tiny has to talk her down.
