1:17:441:17:46

I've got a red heart on my jumper.

1:17:461:17:49

Red is my favourite colour.

Fed!

1:17:511:17:52

Spread.

1:17:521:17:54

Bed is where you sleep.

1:17:551:17:57

But my dad snores!

1:17:571:17:59

This is what he sounds like.

1:17:591:18:01

HE SNORES

1:18:011:18:03

THEY LAUGH

1:18:031:18:04

ALL: See you later!

1:18:041:18:06

1:18:431:18:46

# Big eyes, hairy ears, long snout for a nose. #

1:18:461:18:51

Commander,

1:18:511:18:53

I don't mean to be rude,

1:18:531:18:54

but why DO you have such a long snout?

1:18:541:18:57

To sniff out rhymes!

1:18:571:18:59

SHE SNIFFS

1:18:591:19:02

I thought so! It's the rhyming pair planet.

1:19:021:19:05

Everyone on the look out for aliens that rhyme.

1:19:051:19:09

Eye.

1:19:091:19:11

Pie.

1:19:111:19:14

-Eye.

-Pie.

1:19:141:19:17

Do you think these two aliens rhyme?

1:19:171:19:19

Yes!

1:19:191:19:21

Eye. Pie.

1:19:211:19:23

Excellent!

1:19:231:19:25

More rhymes for the rocket!

1:19:251:19:26

THEY CHEER

1:19:261:19:28

Leaving the pair planet.

1:19:281:19:32

Heading for a poem next!

1:19:321:19:34

In the middle of the night

1:19:341:19:37

I was lying in my bed

1:19:371:19:38

I rolled over twice

1:19:381:19:40

And my big toe said

1:19:401:19:42

"What d'you think you're doing? You're supposed to be asleep

1:19:421:19:45

"Don't keep rolling over like a crazy old sheep"

1:19:451:19:49

BAA!

1:19:491:19:50

I said, "Who are you?"

1:19:501:19:52

And my toe said, "Lizzie

1:19:521:19:54

"Stop turning over You're making me dizzy"

1:19:541:19:58

I said, "OK, Lizzie

1:19:581:20:00

"I'll do my best

1:20:001:20:02

"Now stop talking, will you?

1:20:021:20:04

"I need some rest"

1:20:041:20:06

Ah!

1:20:061:20:08

Then it all went quiet

1:20:081:20:10

I heard nothing more

1:20:101:20:11

Till my toe, Lizzie

1:20:111:20:13

Started to snore.

1:20:131:20:15

HE SNORES

1:20:151:20:16

BOTH: Till my toe, Lizzie Started to snore!

1:20:211:20:25

Imagine that - a snoring toe!

1:20:251:20:28

My leg went to sleep once.

1:20:281:20:31

SHE SNORTS

1:20:311:20:32

-My nose isn't very long, is it?

-No. Pretty average, I'd say.

1:20:321:20:36

My ears. Not very hairy, are they?

1:20:361:20:39

Fluff free, if you ask me.

1:20:391:20:41

When will I start to look like Commander Rhyme-a-lot?

1:20:411:20:45

Well, you won't!

1:20:451:20:47

Not even when I grow up?

1:20:471:20:48

You ARE grown up!

1:20:481:20:50

I'm an alien. Our bodies are completely different!

1:20:501:20:53

I'll always look like this?

1:20:531:20:55

BOTH: Yes!

1:20:551:20:57

Oh?! OK.

1:20:571:21:00

Oh! Officer Ditty. Rhymes ahoy.

1:21:001:21:02

Here comes another!

1:21:021:21:04

Cool, I am I have magic feet

1:21:061:21:09

See me whizz along that street

1:21:091:21:12

When I play ball All those that I meet

1:21:121:21:15

Stop to look at my magic feet

1:21:151:21:18

I can kick a ball to the end of the park

1:21:181:21:20

And you won't find it Till it gets dark

1:21:201:21:23

I can kick a ball and make it fly

1:21:231:21:25

Watch it vanish into the sky

1:21:251:21:27

So look at the magic of my flick kicks

1:21:271:21:30

Watch my feet They do magic tricks!

1:21:301:21:34

Very good!

1:21:361:21:37

More rhyme for our tanks!

1:21:371:21:39

It's the rhyming pair planet!

1:21:391:21:41

I like this one!

1:21:411:21:43

I wonder how many rhyming pairs we'll see this time?

1:21:451:21:49

Eye. Pie.

1:21:491:21:51

There they are! They rhyme.

1:21:511:21:54

Eye. Pie.

1:21:541:21:55

BOTH: Yay!

1:21:551:21:57

Oh, no. Who's this?

1:21:571:22:00

Eye. Pie. Crow?

1:22:001:22:02

That doesn't rhyme.

1:22:021:22:04

Quick, get away!

1:22:041:22:06

ALL: Ah!

1:22:061:22:07

1:22:091:22:12

To help us boost our fuel gauge.

1:22:401:22:43

Bring aboard Laura Dockrill!

1:22:431:22:46

Close your eyes and use your mitts

1:22:481:22:51

To feel around your body bits

1:22:511:22:53

Can you feel squashy bits and spiky bits?

1:22:531:22:56

Bits that you eat with Bits that you see with

1:22:561:22:59

Can you feel huge bits? Tiny bits

1:22:591:23:03

A long bit next to a small bit

1:23:031:23:05

Bits where you think

1:23:051:23:07

And bits where you stink

1:23:071:23:08

And what about all these bones

1:23:081:23:11

That glue you together?

1:23:111:23:13

Your brilliant brain that keeps you clever

1:23:131:23:15

Reminding you of what you might forget

1:23:151:23:18

That tells you when it's time to eat

1:23:181:23:20

And when it's time for bed

1:23:201:23:21

What does your body do to show you you're happy?

1:23:211:23:24

Can you feel a bit that you hug with?

1:23:241:23:27

A bit that you sneeze with? A bit that you hear with?

1:23:271:23:29

What bit do you dream in?

1:23:291:23:32

Where does your heart beat in?

1:23:321:23:35

Can you feel all over your skin?

1:23:351:23:38

And think of what's inside

1:23:381:23:39

And love that bit you live in

1:23:391:23:41

And all that is living outside.

1:23:411:23:45

THEY CHEER AND CLAP

1:23:451:23:46

Laura, that was amazing! Thank you!

1:23:461:23:49

We're flying out of range, so we'd better beam you back.

1:23:491:23:53

-Transport her back.

-Hold your nose, Laura!

1:23:531:23:56

When you've transported, check your body bits are in the right place.

1:23:561:24:01

-Sometimes they're not. It's weird!

-Ditty!

1:24:011:24:04

WHOOSH!

1:24:041:24:06

Professor,

1:24:061:24:08

can YOU feel your skin?

1:24:081:24:09

-Close your eyes, and try.

-OK.

1:24:091:24:12

Oh.

1:24:131:24:15

It's a lot furrier than I remember.

1:24:151:24:17

That's because that's my hand. My skin!

1:24:171:24:21

Get off! Ditty, can you see where we're headed?

1:24:211:24:25

Yes, Commander.

1:24:251:24:27

We're heading for a science museum.

1:24:271:24:31

An exhibition about the human body.

1:24:311:24:33

I bet that's a great place for rhymes.

1:24:331:24:36

Words about skin and bones, arms and toes. Home it in!

1:24:361:24:40

Yes, Commander BING! BONG!

1:24:401:24:42

'Entering Earth's atmosphere.
