Did someone say snack time?! Where's my flapjacks?

0:00:340:00:39

Oh! There they are!

0:00:440:00:48

-I gave one to the Commander...

-Well, where's mine?

0:00:480:00:51

It can only mean one thing -

0:00:510:00:53

-there's a bear on the loose.

-A bear?

0:00:530:00:56

Everyone knows bears love flapjack!

0:01:130:01:15

You're not a bear.

0:01:150:01:16

-A bear?

-SIREN

0:01:160:01:18

That's not a bear! It's the Rhyme Radar!

0:01:180:01:21

Yes, it's detected some rhymes.

0:01:210:01:24

-Not bears?

-No, Rhyme Recruits from Planet Earth.

0:01:240:01:27

-BOTH:

-Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

0:01:270:01:30

Why are we waiting? You know our mission -

0:01:300:01:33

to seek poetry across the universe.

0:01:330:01:36

-ALL:

-One rhyme at a time!

0:01:360:01:37

But my flapjacks...

0:01:370:01:39

Come on! Let's get going!

0:01:390:01:41

-BOTH:

-Let's get this rocket started

0:01:450:01:47

The engine runs on rhyme

0:01:470:01:50

Poems are its fuel

0:01:500:01:52

They get us there on time

0:01:520:01:54

0:01:540:01:57

Wheee!

0:02:040:02:05

Whoo! Blast-off positions!

0:02:050:02:07

Don't forget your seatbelt

0:02:090:02:11

It's going to be fast

0:02:110:02:13

Switch, click, push, twist

0:02:130:02:16

It's going to be a blast.

0:02:160:02:18

-Ten, nine...

Aaaaargh!

0:02:410:02:44

-BOTH:

-Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

0:02:460:02:50

Flat.

0:02:500:02:52

That.

0:02:520:02:53

-BOTH:

-Rat.

0:02:530:02:54

I don't like scary rats.

0:02:540:02:57

Sometimes they creep at you like this.

0:02:570:02:59

Cat.

0:02:590:03:01

Mat.

0:03:010:03:03

Bats are for playing games.

0:03:030:03:05

Like rounders.

0:03:050:03:06

And cricket.

0:03:060:03:08

-I'm the best batter.

-No, you're not!

-Yes I am, you cheeky monkey!

0:03:080:03:13

-BOTH:

-See you later!

0:03:130:03:15

Yes, we will see you later.

0:03:150:03:18

There MUST be a bear on board.

0:03:180:03:20

-It's the only explanation.

-Explanation to what?

0:03:200:03:23

Where my flapjack went.

0:03:230:03:25

Commander, what can you whiff out? Flapjack?

0:03:250:03:28

-COMMANDER SNIFFS

-No, a rhyme!

0:03:280:03:30

I thought so - it's the Rhyming Pair Planet.

0:03:320:03:35

Everyone on the lookout for aliens that rhyme!

0:03:350:03:39

Mouse.

0:03:390:03:41

House.

0:03:410:03:42

Mouse. House. Do you think these two aliens rhyme?

0:03:420:03:48

Yes!

0:03:480:03:49

Mouse!

0:03:490:03:51

House!

0:03:510:03:53

Excellent!

0:03:530:03:54

More rhymes for the rocket!

0:03:540:03:57

Leaving the Pair Planet.

0:03:570:03:59

Heading for a poem next.

0:04:000:04:02

ALL: When walking in my jungle

0:04:040:04:07

The strangest things you'll see

0:04:070:04:10

Like a Health and Safety helmet

0:04:100:04:14

MONKEY CHATTERS On a swinging chimpanzee

0:04:140:04:17

Where the python somehow managed

0:04:170:04:20

To tie itself in knots

0:04:200:04:22

ALL: And the butter-fingered leopard

0:04:220:04:25

Who went and dropped his spots. LEOPARD MEOWS

0:04:250:04:29

Where the nervous alligator

0:04:290:04:32

Is wearing water wings

0:04:320:04:34

Where the wasp is so much nicer now

0:04:340:04:38

Because it no longer stings

0:04:380:04:42

But one animal is still the same

0:04:420:04:46

With its terrible aroma

0:04:460:04:49

One whiff of skunk

0:04:490:04:50

One SNIFF of skunk

0:04:500:04:52

Phwoar! And you'll end up in a coma.

0:04:520:04:57

So a skunk is a very smelly animal.

0:04:570:05:00

That's right.

0:05:000:05:01

Eau de pong. Smelly.

0:05:010:05:04

Stinky.

0:05:040:05:05

Whiffy-wooooo!

0:05:050:05:07

Maybe it was a skunk, not a bear.

0:05:070:05:10

-Huh?

-That stole my flapjack.

0:05:100:05:12

Cos I can detect a certain odour.

0:05:120:05:15

HE SNIFFS

0:05:150:05:17

I've got you!

0:05:170:05:18

Professor, get off!

0:05:180:05:20

Those are my socks They were given to me by Mr Fred Fox

0:05:200:05:25

Socks in a box

0:05:250:05:26

A smelly fox who sells socks?

0:05:260:05:28

No, a fox who sells smelly socks

0:05:280:05:31

Smelly fox who sells socks

0:05:310:05:34

No! A fox who sells smelly socks.

0:05:340:05:37

Over here! More rhymes ahoy!

0:05:370:05:40

I see a cat.

0:05:400:05:42

A cat on a mat?

0:05:420:05:44

Fancy that!

0:05:440:05:45

No! A cat and a fiddle. Planet Hey Diddle Diddle!

0:05:450:05:48

Hey diddle diddle

0:05:520:05:55

The cat and the fiddle

0:05:550:05:58

The cow jumped over the moon

0:05:580:06:00

The little dog laughed to see such fun

0:06:020:06:06

And the dish ran away with the spoon.

0:06:060:06:10

THEY LAUGH

0:06:100:06:14

OK, left a bit.

0:06:150:06:16

Right a bit, that's it. Just there. Yes, yes.

0:06:160:06:20

Cosmic caterpillars! What are you doing?

0:06:200:06:24

Jumping over the moon, of course. Here, hold this.

0:06:240:06:28

Officer Ditty.

0:06:280:06:30

# Hey diddle diddle The Commander and fiddle

0:06:300:06:33

-# The cow jumped over the moon.. #

-Here I go.

0:06:330:06:36

BOING! BOING!

0:06:360:06:38

Higher! Higher! Higher! Higher!

0:06:380:06:42

-Watch out for the...!

-CRASH

0:06:420:06:44

Ooh! That had to hurt!

0:06:440:06:47

Ah! That looks like the Rhyming Pair Planet.

0:06:470:06:50

Let's hope there are no flying cows!

0:06:500:06:53

Mouse. House.

0:06:530:06:56

0:07:100:07:12

-That doesn't rhyme!

-Aaargh!

-Quick!

0:07:120:07:14

Get away!

0:07:140:07:16

Wait a minute.

TRANSPORTER BUBBLES

0:08:010:08:03

I have a pet parrot But he can't really speak

0:08:030:08:05

But when I say he can't speak I mean his voice is just weak

0:08:050:08:08

Cos if you listen really closely, You can hear a little squeak. Eek!

0:08:080:08:11

When he thinks I'm not around I can hear him making noises

0:08:130:08:16

And talking like a pig Is his favourite choice of voices

0:08:160:08:19

SHE SNORTS

0:08:190:08:20

Now second to that He likes to imitate my cat

0:08:200:08:23

And this is so convincing That the cat chats back

0:08:230:08:26

SHE MEOWS

0:08:260:08:29

This cat noise is fairly ordinary

0:08:290:08:30

It's nothing in comparison To his canary

0:08:300:08:34

Ooh, that parrot does a good canary

0:08:340:08:36

Ooh, that parrot does a good canary

0:08:360:08:39

I open the door now Just a smidgen

0:08:390:08:41

In time to catch him Doing his bestest pigeon

0:08:410:08:44

SHE COOS

0:08:440:08:46

But what came next Was truly magnificent

0:08:490:08:51

He opened up his beak And did the sound of an elephant

0:08:510:08:54

SHE TRUMPETS

0:08:540:08:57

This was so loud That it blew my socks off

0:08:570:08:59

But then he grabbed a mic And my jaw nearly dropped off

0:08:590:09:01

I couldn't believe I had a parrot that could beatbox

0:09:010:09:04

SHE BEATBOXES

0:09:040:09:07

My oh my Ah-my oh my

0:09:090:09:11

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-my oh my

0:09:110:09:14

Ooh, that parrot does a good canary

0:09:140:09:16

Ooh, that parrot does a good canary.

0:09:160:09:20

-APPLAUSE

-Wheeee! Grace! That was amazing!

0:09:200:09:23

0:09:230:09:24

We're going out of range, we should beam Grace back.

0:09:240:09:27

I'll just get an autograph.

0:09:270:09:29

Ditty!

0:09:290:09:31

0:09:310:09:34

-She's gone.

-DITTY BEATBOXES

0:09:340:09:36

Zoom!

0:09:370:09:39

Look at that! Our tank is almost full.

0:09:410:09:44

We still need to find the Rhyme Recruits.

0:09:440:09:47

Maybe they know what's eaten my flapjack.

0:09:470:09:50

And what is our precise location, Ditty?

0:09:500:09:53

Oh! Yes, Commander...

0:09:530:09:55

The Rhyme-Nav says we're heading for an aquarium.

0:09:550:09:58

A what-ium?

0:09:580:09:59

It's where earthlings look at fish and other sea life.

0:09:590:10:03

-How long till we get there?

-You have to wait.

0:10:030:10:06

I predict five hours till we reach our destination.
