0:00:570:01:00

Your turn, Sparky 2! Here goes!

0:01:050:01:08

A-one...a-two...a...!

0:01:080:01:10

BOTH GIGGLE

0:01:100:01:12

My go!

0:01:120:01:14

Awwwk!

0:01:140:01:16

Night-time again. You'd better fly away home before it gets dark.

0:01:160:01:21

Awwwk!

0:01:210:01:22

BOTH: Aw-w-w-w!

0:01:320:01:34

Tiny, why do you have to turn the day off?

0:01:350:01:39

Cos it's night-time, that's why.

0:01:390:01:42

Yeah, but WE were having fun!

0:01:420:01:44

-We've invented this brilliant new game.

-It's called Botspotch.

0:01:440:01:49

Botspotch?

0:01:490:01:50

Yeah - crazy name, crazy game!

0:01:500:01:53

But now you've pulled the lever.

0:01:530:01:56

-But you can still play your game.

-What? How?

0:01:560:02:00

Use your lights to see by.

0:02:000:02:03

Oh, yes!

0:02:030:02:04

-Of course!

-Brilliant! Give me three, Sparky!

0:02:040:02:08

So, how do you play this game?

0:02:080:02:11

With this!

0:02:110:02:12

And this!

0:02:120:02:15

-And what you do is kick the bolt...

-Or spotcher...

0:02:220:02:26

..across the field...

0:02:260:02:27

Or boto-ground.

0:02:270:02:29

-..until you've covered all the squares...

-Or spot-boxes.

-Whoa!

0:02:290:02:33

Bundle out! ..That's when you fall over in Botspotch.

0:02:350:02:40

Can I have a go?

0:02:400:02:42

-Yeah!

-Course you can!

0:02:420:02:44

BOTH: Go, Tiny! Go, Tiny! Go, Tiny!

0:02:470:02:50

BUNDLE OUT!

0:02:520:02:54

My turn!

0:02:550:02:56

..six, seven, eight, nine...

0:02:560:02:58

TEN!

0:02:580:03:00

Hooray!

0:03:000:03:01

I'm the winner! Yippee!

0:03:010:03:04

-HE YAWNS

-Not tired, Tiny?

0:03:040:03:07

I am a bit. I think it's time for bed. We've been playing for ages.

0:03:070:03:12

-Oh, well... See you tomorrow, Tiny!

-Night, Tiny!

0:03:120:03:15

Night, Sparky 1. Night, Sparky 2.

0:03:170:03:19

HE SNORES

0:03:230:03:25

Awwwk!

0:03:250:03:27

Uh...?

0:03:270:03:28

Aww-w-wk!

0:03:300:03:32

Ow! What...what's happening?

0:03:320:03:34

Awwwk-awwwk-awwk!

0:03:340:03:36

You're right! I should have pulled the lever ages ago!

0:03:380:03:42

Awwk-awwk!

0:03:420:03:44

I shouldn't have stayed up so late playing Botspotch.

0:03:440:03:49

-Oh, where did all that lot come from all of a sudden?

-Ahem!

0:03:590:04:04

-Oh, hello, Tiny. Didn't see you there.

-Stretchy...

0:04:040:04:08

Can't stop to chat - got more junk in the night than I was expecting.

0:04:080:04:13

-Anyone would think you'd forgotten to turn the day on.

-I did.

0:04:130:04:17

But I knew you wouldn't.... WHAT?!

0:04:170:04:19

I did. Well, not so much forgot as overslept.

0:04:190:04:22

I was up rather late with the Sparkies.

0:04:220:04:25

Oh!

0:04:250:04:26

Sorry, Stretchy. It...it won't happen again.

0:04:260:04:30

No.

0:04:300:04:32

No, it WON'T happen again - not if I have anything to do with it!

0:04:320:04:37

Hmm...I wonder...

0:04:370:04:40

So, like I said, Noisy, sorry about the delay in starting the day.

0:04:420:04:47

Don't worry - I hadn't got anything important planned for today.

0:04:470:04:51

-You have now.

-Oh!

0:04:510:04:53

Oh! Oh, hello, Stretchy. What do you mean, "I have now"?

0:04:530:04:57

I need your help.

0:04:570:05:00

Oh, how exciting! Help with what, Stretchy?

0:05:000:05:03

I'm going to make Tiny...

0:05:030:05:05

a waker-upper!

0:05:050:05:09

Ooh! What a brilliant idea! So he doesn't oversleep again?

0:05:090:05:13

Exactly. And I need a few noisy things to make it, well...noisy.

0:05:130:05:19

Right, Stretchy, let's see what we can find.

0:05:190:05:23

There!

0:05:320:05:33

It's wonderful, Stretchy!

0:05:330:05:35

But will it work?

0:05:350:05:38

It'll work.

0:05:380:05:40

Oh, well, that time of day again - thank goodness.

0:05:400:05:44

Goodnight, Robots.

0:05:440:05:46

There.

0:05:560:05:57

All ready.

0:05:570:05:58

RINGING AND CLATTERING

0:06:060:06:09

Oh! Hey!

0:06:120:06:15

What's happening?

0:06:170:06:18

-What's that?

-It's a waker-upper.

0:06:300:06:33

I made it to get you out of bed. Didn't want you oversleeping again.

0:06:330:06:38

Well, I'm awake now, so you can turn it off.

0:06:380:06:42

Ah...

0:06:420:06:43

Slight problem.

0:06:430:06:46

What problem? Turn it off!

0:06:460:06:48

I forgot to include an off switch! There's no way of turning it off.

0:06:480:06:54

Well, make one, or something!

0:06:540:06:56

-Noisy!

-Stop that noise!

0:06:580:07:01

It isn't me - it's Stretchy! He invented a waker-upper.

0:07:010:07:06

Doesn't it make a gloriously loud noise?

0:07:060:07:09

BOTH: NO!

0:07:090:07:11

RACKET CONTINUES

0:07:110:07:14

Are you SURE that's a good idea?

0:07:140:07:16

Have you...

0:07:160:07:18

got a...better one?

0:07:180:07:21

-Oi, Stretchy!

-We've got a cog to pick with you.

0:07:210:07:25

Oh, Stretchy, it's so-o-o-o noisy!

0:07:250:07:29

Take it away and leave it in the wasteland until it runs down.

0:07:290:07:34

Good idea.

0:07:340:07:35

Seems a pity to waste a lovely, noisy noise like that.

0:07:390:07:43

Sorry about this, Tiny.

0:07:460:07:48

Honestly! I should have remembered to make an off switch.

0:07:480:07:52

Noisy, what are you doing here?

0:07:520:07:55

-Oh, nothing. Just enjoying the noise.

-Enjoying?! Huh!

0:07:550:07:58

The sooner I get away from here the better.

0:07:580:08:02

-Um...Tiny?

-Yes?

-Have you got your screwdrivers with you?

0:08:020:08:06

Doesn't sound so loud now.

0:08:100:08:12

No. That's cos we took it to the wasteland.

0:08:120:08:17

It'll run down eventually. Till then, we'll just have to...

0:08:170:08:21

-MUSIC PLAYS

-I didn't think it would run down quite like that!

0:08:210:08:26

-Ooh! It's getting louder.

-And funkier!

0:08:260:08:30

I don't get it.

0:08:300:08:32

What's going on?

0:08:320:08:34

It's not a waker-upper any more, Stretchy!

0:08:340:08:37

Ha-ha-ha!

0:08:380:08:40

-Throw the spotcher on the ground...

-Hop and kick it all around!

0:08:420:08:46

-Don't bundle out the boto-ground!

-You're playing Botspotch!

0:08:460:08:51

ALL: Throw your spotcher on the ground! Hop and kick it all around!

0:08:520:08:56

Don't bundle out on the boto-ground! You're playing Botspotch!

0:08:560:09:00

ALL: Hooray!

0:09:000:09:02

-You know, Stretchy, I'm glad I overslept!

-How do you mean?

0:09:020:09:07

If I hadn't,

0:09:070:09:08

you wouldn't have made your waker-upper with no switcher-offer.

0:09:080:09:12

Look at all the fun we're having!

0:09:120:09:14

Fun?! I'm not having fun.

0:09:140:09:17

I'm... Oh!

0:09:170:09:19

Oh, I am! I AM having fun, aren't I?

0:09:190:09:22

Ha-ha-ha! Woo!

0:09:220:09:24

ALL LAUGH

Tiny oversleeps and doesn't turn the day on until way past time, so Stretchy decides to make a waker-upper machine, with a little help from Noisy. It performs admirably but Stretchy has forgotten to include a switcher-offer switch. They take it to the Wasteland where, it is hoped, it will run down. But Noisy has other ideas and with Tiny's help, turns it into a musical instrument.
