# 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! #
Your turn, Sparky 2! Here goes!
Night-time again. You'd better fly away home before it gets dark.
Tiny, why do you have to turn the day off?
Cos it's night-time, that's why.
Yeah, but WE were having fun!
-We've invented this brilliant new game.
-It's called Botspotch.
Yeah - crazy name, crazy game!
But now you've pulled the lever.
-But you can still play your game.
Use your lights to see by.
-Brilliant! Give me three, Sparky!
So, how do you play this game?
-And what you do is kick the bolt...
..across the field...
-..until you've covered all the squares...
Bundle out! ..That's when you fall over in Botspotch.
Can I have a go?
-Course you can!
BOTH: Go, Tiny! Go, Tiny! Go, Tiny!
..six, seven, eight, nine...
I'm the winner! Yippee!
-Not tired, Tiny?
I am a bit. I think it's time for bed. We've been playing for ages.
-Oh, well... See you tomorrow, Tiny!
Night, Sparky 1. Night, Sparky 2.
Ow! What...what's happening?
You're right! I should have pulled the lever ages ago!
I shouldn't have stayed up so late playing Botspotch.
-Oh, where did all that lot come from all of a sudden?
-Oh, hello, Tiny. Didn't see you there.
Can't stop to chat - got more junk in the night than I was expecting.
-Anyone would think you'd forgotten to turn the day on.
But I knew you wouldn't.... WHAT?!
I did. Well, not so much forgot as overslept.
I was up rather late with the Sparkies.
Sorry, Stretchy. It...it won't happen again.
No, it WON'T happen again - not if I have anything to do with it!
So, like I said, Noisy, sorry about the delay in starting the day.
Don't worry - I hadn't got anything important planned for today.
-You have now.
Oh! Oh, hello, Stretchy. What do you mean, "I have now"?
I need your help.
Oh, how exciting! Help with what, Stretchy?
I'm going to make Tiny...
Ooh! What a brilliant idea! So he doesn't oversleep again?
Exactly. And I need a few noisy things to make it, well...noisy.
Right, Stretchy, let's see what we can find.
It's wonderful, Stretchy!
But will it work?
Oh, well, that time of day again - thank goodness.
RINGING AND CLATTERING
-It's a waker-upper.
I made it to get you out of bed. Didn't want you oversleeping again.
Well, I'm awake now, so you can turn it off.
What problem? Turn it off!
I forgot to include an off switch! There's no way of turning it off.
Well, make one, or something!
-Stop that noise!
It isn't me - it's Stretchy! He invented a waker-upper.
Doesn't it make a gloriously loud noise?
Are you SURE that's a good idea?
got a...better one?
-We've got a cog to pick with you.
Oh, Stretchy, it's so-o-o-o noisy!
Take it away and leave it in the wasteland until it runs down.
Seems a pity to waste a lovely, noisy noise like that.
Sorry about this, Tiny.
Honestly! I should have remembered to make an off switch.
Noisy, what are you doing here?
-Oh, nothing. Just enjoying the noise.
The sooner I get away from here the better.
-Have you got your screwdrivers with you?
Doesn't sound so loud now.
No. That's cos we took it to the wasteland.
It'll run down eventually. Till then, we'll just have to...
-I didn't think it would run down quite like that!
-Ooh! It's getting louder.
I don't get it.
What's going on?
It's not a waker-upper any more, Stretchy!
-Throw the spotcher on the ground...
-Hop and kick it all around!
-Don't bundle out the boto-ground!
-You're playing Botspotch!
ALL: Throw your spotcher on the ground! Hop and kick it all around!
Don't bundle out on the boto-ground! You're playing Botspotch!
-You know, Stretchy, I'm glad I overslept!
-How do you mean?
If I hadn't,
you wouldn't have made your waker-upper with no switcher-offer.
Look at all the fun we're having!
Fun?! I'm not having fun.
Oh, I am! I AM having fun, aren't I?

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.
