-It's nearly... Metal Makes Us Special Day!

-Hooray!

0:01:050:01:11

The celebration will be special

0:01:110:01:13

because Noisy's going to record our Metal Makes Us Special song.

0:01:130:01:17

-How are you going to do that, Noisy?

-Easy-peasy, Sporty.

0:01:170:01:21

"How are you going to do that?"

0:01:220:01:25

Oh, wow! Amazing!

0:01:250:01:29

When I've recorded the song, you'll be able to play it back again.

0:01:290:01:33

Remember, finish your metal rollers by the time I pull the lever.

0:01:330:01:38

Take them along to the wasteland where we'll judge which is best.

0:01:380:01:42

I'm sorry I'm late, I've been really busy at my yard.

0:01:420:01:46

I'm making a "Spotty Surprise" metal roller with Stretchy.

0:01:460:01:50

-What?! I didn't know that.

-That's the surprise.

0:01:500:01:54

-We're building one with Scary.

-It'll be really scary!

0:01:540:01:59

-Stripy and I are making a "ding-dong" metal roller.

-Ha-ha-ha.

0:01:590:02:04

So, let's get started.

0:02:040:02:07

Oh, I'm going to record the best Little Robot song ever!

0:02:070:02:11

We're making a "Spotty Surprise" trailer, Stretchy.

0:02:120:02:15

-Oh, I'm a bit short of spotty things.

-Then make some, Stretchy.

0:02:150:02:20

-Oh, I suppose I could use my round hole puncher.

-Go for it, Stretchy.

0:02:200:02:26

Ha-ha-ha!

0:02:270:02:29

-Give it to me, Sporty.

-Right.

0:02:330:02:35

-It's screwed down tight.

-Let's give it a go!

0:02:350:02:39

-Yes, it's squeaking, Sporty!

-But it's not squeaky enough, Rusty.

0:02:390:02:44

Ha-ha!

0:02:440:02:46

I'll go and see if Stretchy's got anything squeaky in his yard.

0:02:460:02:50

You two will pop out from behind the curtain that dear Flappy...

0:02:520:02:57

-Eee-ee!

-..is heroically holding up.

0:02:570:02:59

-Yo-ho-ho!

-Eee!

0:02:590:03:03

Ho-ho-ho!

0:03:040:03:06

-Oh, dear heart, do not distress yourself, it was an accident.

-Eee!

0:03:060:03:11

We must find a way to hold it up.

0:03:110:03:14

Stretchy's sure to have something. Come on, Sparky Two!

0:03:140:03:18

Ting-ting! Ting-ting!

0:03:180:03:21

Wow! This is music to my ears!

0:03:210:03:24

Ting-ting!

0:03:240:03:27

-Play that thing, little robot.

-Ooh.

-Ting-ting!

0:03:270:03:31

You know...it could make more of a ding-dong, Stripy.

0:03:310:03:36

-Could it?

-Yes. I'll go and see what Stretchy's got in his yard.

0:03:360:03:40

Hey, Messy, do you want to hear all the things I've recorded?

0:03:450:03:49

-Woof!

-Here we go!

0:03:490:03:51

-Give it to me, Sporty!

-Eee-ee!

-Oh, dear heart!

-He-he-he!

0:03:510:03:57

-Play that thing, little robot!

-Ooh.

-Go for it, Stretchy!

0:03:570:04:01

Ho-ho-ho! Wrr-oof!

0:04:010:04:03

Ha-ha! Hey, Messy, could you flash that bark past me one more time?

0:04:030:04:08

-Wrr-oof!

-Maybe you could throw in a howl?

0:04:100:04:14

Ho-o-owl!

0:04:140:04:17

Ha-ha-ha-ha!

0:04:170:04:19

Lovely!

0:04:190:04:21

I'm looking for something squeaky.

0:04:260:04:28

-Have you got a pole, Stretchy?

-Oh!

0:04:280:04:31

-Where's that round hole...?

-Hey! Just hang on a minute!

0:04:320:04:36

Poor Stretchy, he's got things to do too.

0:04:360:04:40

-Exactly.

-Huh, I'll go and find the round hole puncher.

0:04:400:04:45

HE YAWNS

0:04:450:04:47

Just put...

0:04:490:04:51

Ah!

0:04:530:04:55

Yes! Squeaky wheels!

0:04:550:04:57

Ha-ha!

0:04:570:04:59

Ha-ha-ha!

0:05:030:05:05

Over there. No, longer. I need a longer one. Put it there. Rubbish!

0:05:070:05:12

-No, not there.

-Uh!

-Yes, over there.

-Uh! Ooh!

-Have you got another one?

0:05:120:05:17

Ding-dong!

0:05:300:05:32

Hu-hu!

0:05:320:05:33

Ha-ha-ha!

0:05:330:05:36

Oh, that's not right at all. Oh!

0:05:430:05:47

YAWNS

0:05:470:05:49

ALL THE ROBOTS' NOISES TOGETHER

0:05:560:05:58

Listen to this, then.

0:05:580:06:01

Oh, oh, that's a good noise.

0:06:010:06:04

Ooh, ooh, this is lovely.

0:06:040:06:06

-Oh, ha! Ooh!

-Woof-woof!

0:06:060:06:09

Woof!

0:06:090:06:11

Perfect!

0:06:110:06:12

I hope ALL the little robots get a good night's sleep.

0:06:130:06:17

It'll be a very special day when we wake up.

0:06:170:06:21

Uh, whe-ey!

0:06:210:06:23

STRETCHY YAWNS

0:06:340:06:36

Huh!

0:06:360:06:38

Uh, oh!

0:06:390:06:42

Wake up, little robots! It's Metal Makes Us Special Day!

0:06:490:06:55

Ding-dong! Ding-dong!

0:07:080:07:11

There we are Messy, all set. SNORING

0:07:110:07:14

-Wrr-oof!

0:07:140:07:17

I wonder who's making THAT noise.

0:07:170:07:19

SNORING

0:07:190:07:22

Wake up, Stretchy!

0:07:220:07:24

What are we going to do? Ah, we'll miss the metal roller competition!

0:07:240:07:29

I can't wake him and we certainly can't move him - he's too heavy.

0:07:290:07:33

You'll just have to pull Stretchy along on a metal roller, Spotty.

0:07:330:07:37

-But he's asleep!

-Cover him in spots and pretend he's part of the truck.

0:07:370:07:43

Where's that round hole puncher?

0:07:430:07:45

Yeah! Hooray!
