-Rusty, ready for inspection day?
Oh, goodness, Spotty, what's that?
Do I have to be inspected?
-No, inspection days are when
Today, it's holes-in-the-ground inspection day.
This is my holes-in-the-ground inspection machine.
-Oh, yes, mm-hm. VERY mm-hm!
THIS tells me how WIDE a hole is.
..tells me how deep it is. And this is...
-To hit things with.
-Yes, that's right!
To make sure that they're strong and solid.
Have fun then, Spotty. I'm off to the oasis for a bit. Bye!
Ho-ho-ho. Very nifty machine that, though I say it myself.
Very nifty indeed.
Oh, dear! Oh, dear! I spoke too soon, I fear. I...
Oh! Oh, no! Oh!
Oh! Oh, no! Not the chute as well!
MECHANICAL CLUNKS AND RATTLES
-Looks like you could do with some help, Stretchy.
I was off to the wasteland,
it's ages since I cleared it, and this happens!
What you need is an assistant.
I'll make you one.
Oh! Ow! OW!
Ow! Um, hum-hum.
There you are - a collectorbot
to clear metal from the wasteland, while we sort out the mess here.
Oh-ho-ho, you ARE clever, Tiny!
BLEEP MACHINE RUMBLES AND CLUNKS
Right, now, all I do is push this switch
and the collectorbot will work by itself.
But I don't see the point, Spotty.
I mean, it's my ORCHESTRA pit.
It's also a hole in the ground, Noisy,
and today is holes-in-the-ground inspection day,
so I have to check it!
Noisy! Spotty! Help!
-Rusty, whatever's the matter?
Oh, Noisy, I've had such a fright! There's a...thing, out there.
-It's got six arms, and it waves them, and it makes noises, and...
-Does it talk?
-I don't know, Noisy! I didn't wait to find out.
I knew this would happen one day.
As I thought, it is not a Little Robot.
That can only mean one thing.
-What does it mean?
It means that, whatever it is, it's come from outside our world.
It may mean to do us harm. It's an invader.
-TOGETHER: An Invader! NO!
We're doomed! WE'RE DOOMED!
-BOTH of you!
-This is no time to panic. There may be other invaders on their way.
-And it's up to us to stop them.
We've got a top-level emergency, here, Sporty -
A RED ALERT! You are looking at an invader from outside our world!
Who knows what damage it may do?
-But what, exactly, is it?
-I've no idea.
Obviously, our first job is to get close enough to find out.
On NO ACCOUNT must the invader see us.
you MUST be very quiet.
-Oh, ho-ho, sorry. Ha!
Rusty, you mustn't let off steam.
WHISTLE Oh! Agh!
And, Sporty, you must try to look as small as possible.
There seems to be only one invader, thank goodness.
But others may be on their way.
You're the fastest, Sporty,
so run round and find out where it broke in.
-Bring back something to dig with!
-To dig with?!
That's right! I've worked out how to catch it.
OK, see you!
Hup, hup, hup, hup, hup, hup, hup.
No sign of any break-in, Spotty, but I could've missed something.
Thank you, Sporty. Listen, everyone,
we are now going to capture the invader.
-you keep watch for any other invaders.
-BOTH: Yes, Spotty.
Sporty, as soon as it goes back the other way,
run out and dig a deep trench double-quick.
-I'll show you where, OK?
-Rely on me, Spotty.
Stand by, then.
Well done, Sporty. Keep it up.
Sporty, time to get out! Sporty!
-Run, Sporty! Run!
-No, I've got to get her out!
MACHINE BLEEPS AND WHOOPS
-What shall we do? What shall we DO?
-I'll get Tiny. He'll know.
Ah, collectorbot's full up.
-I'll tell it to come back.
-Hup, hup, hup, hup.
EMERGENCY, TINY! Invaders! Red Alert! Ahn-grrr-urp!
-Hey, careful, Sporty!
-Hup, hup, hup, hup, hup, hup!
Eh? Red alert?!
My, oh, my, it IS full up!
Crikey! It's Spotty!
Spotty, what are you doing?
-No, no! I...
I surrender. I'll come quietly. Take me to your leader.
This'll frighten away any invaders, Rusty!
Yes, it seems to be working, so far! Ho-ho!
-Sporty, thank goodness!
-What invader?! Where is it?
-Yes, it went away. We've been trying to...
WHISTLE Oh, look, it's coming back!
-It's coming to get me!
-It's still got Spotty! What shall we do, Tiny?
Oh, dunno, really.
-Let's ask her.
Ho-ho-ho! Oh, dear! Oh, dear!
-Anyone for a ride?

Spotty is having one of her routine inspection days when Rusty reports a strange encounter at the Oasis. It takes Spotty no time at all to deduce that an intruder has broken into the Little Robot world and they are about to be invaded.
She quickly mobilises a Little Robot task force to deal with the crisis only to get captured herself. Soon, however, she discovers what we knew all along - the so-called invader is really Stretchy's latest invention, a remotely-controlled Collectabot.
