0:32:020:32:05

one rhyme at a time!

# The Rhyme Rocket!

0:32:260:32:28

# The rhyme rocket! #

0:32:280:32:29

Soggy wet soil, sitting in a pot,

0:32:350:32:38

teeny-weeny seeds, choose a sunny spot.

0:32:400:32:42

Cover them with earth, give a little pat,

0:32:420:32:46

clean up the trowel with a ratta-tat-tat.

0:32:460:32:49

Professor, what are you doing?

0:32:490:32:52

I'm sowing seeds. I want to grow a plant for the rocket.

0:32:520:32:55

Sowing, for growing! That looks like fun. Can I help?

0:32:550:32:59

-OK. But it's a carefully thought out, scientific process.

-OK.

0:33:010:33:06

BOTH: Soggy wet soil, sitting in a pot,

0:33:060:33:09

teeny-weeny seeds, choose a sunny spot.

0:33:090:33:12

Cover them with earth, give a little pat,

0:33:120:33:16

clean up the trowel with a ratta-tat-tat!

0:33:160:33:19

ALARM BLARES

0:33:190:33:20

The rhyme radar!

0:33:240:33:25

First Officer Ditty, why are you not standing by?

0:33:250:33:28

Sorry, Commander. The professor wants to grow a pot plant for the rocket.

0:33:280:33:31

A plant?! Sizzling starships!

0:33:310:33:33

We're supposed to be alert and on the lookout for rhymes at all times.

0:33:330:33:36

Ditty! What is out there?

0:33:360:33:39

It looks like rhyme recruits on Planet Earth!

0:33:390:33:42

CHEERING

0:33:420:33:43

-They'll have a poem for us!

-Excellent. That's our mission -

0:33:430:33:47

to collect poems from across the universe...

0:33:470:33:49

One rhyme at a time!

0:33:490:33:52

Professor, put down that pot!

0:33:520:33:54

Are you going to join in?

0:33:540:33:56

Let's get this rocket started,

0:33:590:34:01

the engine runs on rhyme.

0:34:010:34:03

Poems are its fuel,

0:34:030:34:05

they get us there on time.

0:34:050:34:08

-Stand to attention!

-Yes!

0:34:080:34:11

-Do your final checks.

-Check!

0:34:110:34:13

-Go to the toilet.

-Flush!

0:34:130:34:15

We're ready on the deck!

0:34:150:34:18

Don't forget your seatbelt, it's going to be fast.

0:34:180:34:23

-Switch, click, push, twist.

-It's going to be a blast!

0:34:230:34:27

-10, 9...

-Communicate!

0:34:270:34:30

-8, 7, 6, 5...

-All systems live!

0:34:300:34:35

-3, 2...

-Ready, crew? Blast off!

0:34:350:34:42

Well, crew, another successful blast-off.

0:34:550:34:57

But let's not waste any time.

0:34:570:34:59

We need to start filling our rhyme tanks.

0:34:590:35:01

Ditty, scan the universe for words!

0:35:010:35:04

Ooh, rhyming words from Earth!

0:35:040:35:07

Ready the tanks for collection.

0:35:070:35:09

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket!

0:35:090:35:13

-Route.

-Flute.

-Suit.

0:35:130:35:17

I wonder what this word is?

0:35:170:35:20

-Fruit!

-Yes! That's right.

0:35:200:35:23

-Grow.

-Show.

-Throw.

0:35:230:35:28

What's the final rhyming word?

0:35:300:35:31

-Blow!

-Yes! Well done, rhyme recruits!

0:35:330:35:37

Bye, Rhyme Rocket!

0:35:370:35:41

Goodbye, rhyme recruits. Thanks for your rhyming words!

0:35:410:35:44

Our tanks have started to fill up.

0:35:440:35:47

Professor, what's wrong?

0:35:500:35:53

It's my seeds. They're taking ages.

0:35:530:35:56

It's been at least three hours since I planted them and not a peep.

0:35:560:35:59

I think it might take a bit longer than that, Professor.

0:35:590:36:01

Why don't you try talking to them? Some say it can help.

0:36:010:36:06

In that case, a poem.

0:36:060:36:07

Little seeds, when will you grow? When, oh, when? I just don't know.

0:36:080:36:14

Oh, I can't wait to see you peek above the soil - a day, week,

0:36:140:36:20

a month or more?

0:36:200:36:21

I just can't wait until you become a plant.

0:36:210:36:25

What have you sniffed out, Commander? Flowers?

0:36:270:36:30

No, a rhyme!

0:36:300:36:32

SNIFFING

0:36:320:36:34

I've never seen a plant with pants on.

0:36:360:36:40

I've never seen a lawn that's blue.

0:36:400:36:43

You never see a runner bean in trainers.

0:36:430:36:47

Or a cactus growing from the loo.

0:36:470:36:49

I've never seen a fox wearing foxgloves.

0:36:490:36:53

I've never heard a bluebell ring.

0:36:530:36:55

RINGING

0:36:550:36:57

And don't expect some cheddar from a cheese plant.

0:36:570:37:01

Or daffodils in spring with bling.

0:37:010:37:06

I've never seen a tulip wearing lipstick.

0:37:060:37:11

I've never seen a sunflower shine.

0:37:110:37:13

The favourite flower of a snowman is a snowdrop.

0:37:150:37:20

And the bestest smelling tree must be the pine.

0:37:200:37:25

The fuel gauge has gone up again!

0:37:250:37:28

We're halfway to Planet Earth and not a peep from my plant.

0:37:350:37:38

Oh, dear.

0:37:380:37:39

Well, if it's growing you want, let's activate the soundascope!

0:37:390:37:43

And listen to what's coming up.

0:37:450:37:47

RAIN PATTERS

0:37:470:37:51

It's a rainy day!

0:37:510:37:52

That water is just what my plants need to grow.

0:37:530:37:56

Grow! Grow!

0:37:570:38:01

ALL: Grow! Grow!

0:38:010:38:06

Hang on, the sound's changing.

0:38:070:38:09

Oh, no! It's a hot desert. That's not what your plants need.

0:38:120:38:15

My poor plants! Wilt! Wilt!

0:38:150:38:21

ALL: Wilt! Wilt!

0:38:210:38:28

Officer Ditty, it's too hot. Make it stop!

0:38:280:38:31

Have you seen any water?

0:38:330:38:35

I'm afraid not, Professor. I can only see a snail.

0:38:350:38:41

Slimy snail sat on a leaf and wondered what to do.

0:38:430:38:47

He wanted to go to London, but he only had one shoe.

0:38:470:38:51

So he went slip, slide, slip, slide,

0:38:530:38:58

slip, slide, the whole day through.

0:38:580:39:02

-Not very green, are they?

-What?

-My fingers.

0:39:060:39:11

Apparently, people who like to grow plants have green fingers.

0:39:110:39:14

-But you haven't grown anything yet, have you?

-Let me see.

0:39:140:39:17

Nothing yet. Not a single sprout to shout about.

0:39:200:39:24

Give that to me.

0:39:240:39:26

I know, why don't we sing to the plants?

0:39:260:39:29

Commander, have you got any ideas?

0:39:290:39:31

A song to help you grow? Of course! I've got just the thing.

0:39:310:39:35

# Grow, grow, grow your plant Slowly in a pot

0:39:350:39:40

# Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Time to sprout a lot! #

0:39:400:39:44

Keep going, I think I can see movement.

0:39:450:39:47

# Grow, grow, grow your plant Slowly in a pot

0:39:470:39:51

# Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Time to sprout a lot! #

0:39:510:39:54

No, nothing yet.

0:39:540:39:57

Professor, what are you doing?

0:40:020:40:04

I'm trying to find a good spot for my plant.

0:40:040:40:07

-What about here?

-ALARM BLARES

0:40:070:40:09

-Woah!

-Woah!

-Woah!

0:40:090:40:12

We're being sucked into a ryhmehole!

0:40:120:40:16

Oh, I like it.

0:40:220:40:23

It's giving me dancey legs.

0:40:230:40:24

Look at all that space junk!

0:40:260:40:28

Crew, there's only one thing for it. We'll have to rhyme our way out.

0:40:280:40:33

I can see a tree, a bee and a great big flea.

0:40:350:40:40

-Tree, bee and a great big flea.

-Tree, bee and a great big flea.

0:40:430:40:47

Oh, look, a shiny key! A cup of tea. And that looks tasty.

0:40:490:40:54

Yeah, it's a juicy green pea.

0:40:540:40:57

-Key, tea and juicy green pea.

-Key, tea and a juicy green pea.

0:40:570:41:02

-I like it, crew! Keep going!

-There's a cheese called brie.

0:41:020:41:06

-And a knobbly knee.

-Really?

0:41:060:41:10

Cheese called brie and a knobbly knee.

0:41:110:41:14

Cheese called brie and a knobbly knee.

0:41:140:41:16

One more time and we'll get out of here.

0:41:160:41:19

Tree, bee and a great big flea.

0:41:210:41:23

Key, tea and a juicy green pea.

0:41:230:41:26

There's a cheese called brie and a knobbly knee.

0:41:260:41:29

Don't look now, but there's a panda on a ski!

0:41:290:41:32

We made it! Well done, team.

0:41:340:41:36

And look at our rhyme tank, it's almost full!

0:41:360:41:39

But we still need to find the rhyme recruits.

0:41:420:41:44

Ditty, where are we headed?

0:41:440:41:46

It says we're headed in the direction

0:41:470:41:49

of a large group of rhyme recruits in a city called London.

0:41:490:41:52

Excellent. They can help us create a poem all about plants.

0:41:520:41:57

-Hang on, a poem! That's it!

-What's it?

0:41:570:42:01

The man in the plant shop said that they were poem seeds.

0:42:010:42:04

They need poems to help them grow. I need to write another poem!

0:42:040:42:09

'Entering Earth's atmosphere.

0:42:100:42:13

'Stand by for entry. Stand by for entry.'

0:42:130:42:17

Ditty, help me! What rhymes with pavlova?

0:42:170:42:20

-Cream?

-No! Uh, Gover? Rover!

-Clover!

0:42:200:42:25

Quiet, crew! I need to make an announcement.

0:42:250:42:27

Greetings, Earthlings.

0:42:280:42:30

This is the Rhyme Rocket, ready to collect your words.

0:42:300:42:34

-Bricks.

-Sticks.

0:42:340:42:36

Crew! Hit the brakes!

0:42:360:42:38

We've reached our destination. London! Pheee-ooooh!

0:42:450:42:50

Right, crew. You need to collect a poem from our rhyme recruits.

0:42:500:42:54

-Is that clear?

-Yes, Commander.

0:42:540:42:57

The rhyme recruits are waiting for you. Get a move on!

0:43:020:43:06

# Rhyme Rocket! Rhyme Rocket!

0:43:100:43:14

# We've been whizzing through space with a smile on our face

0:43:140:43:17

# From Planet Rhyme to Earth

0:43:170:43:19

# Great poems we've got, thanks to Rhyme-a-lot

0:43:190:43:22

# From across the universe!

0:43:220:43:24

# And now we've found our rhyme recruits

0:43:240:43:27

# So we're really aiming high

0:43:270:43:29

# Stand up and shout out words and sounds

0:43:290:43:32

# Let's get our rhymes to fly!

0:43:320:43:34

-Tiny seed...

-Without a sound...

-Starts to grow...

-Under the ground.

0:43:340:43:40

-Down below...

-It forms a root...

0:43:400:43:43

Looking for a light.

0:43:430:43:45

Out comes a shoot.

0:43:450:43:47

-Well will it flower?

-When will it bloom?

0:43:470:43:49

I want a plant for my bedroom!

0:43:490:43:52

-Wait!

-Give it time.

0:43:520:43:54

-How about a week?

-Maybe two.

0:43:540:43:57

-I'm sick of waiting.

-We're sick of you!

0:43:570:44:01

-Drip, drip, drop.

-Little April shower.

0:44:010:44:05

Add some sunshine.

0:44:050:44:06

Flower power!

0:44:060:44:08

Fantastic poem! Well done, recruits!

0:44:080:44:12

It's filled up our rhyme tanks!

0:44:140:44:17

ALL: Yeah!

0:44:170:44:19

Crew, time to head home.

0:44:200:44:25

Rhyme recruits, before we go, can you do one last thing for us?

0:44:250:44:28

BOTH: Never stop rhyming!

0:44:280:44:31

# Everyone here had brilliant rhymes

0:44:310:44:33

# They're the best we've ever heard

0:44:330:44:36

# But now, recruits We will say goodbye

0:44:360:44:39

# And rocket from your world!

0:44:390:44:41

# We'll go whizzing through space with a smile on our face

0:44:410:44:43

# From Earth to Planet Rhyme

0:44:430:44:45

# Cheery-bye, got to fly Must dash, in a flash

0:44:450:44:48

# And see you all next time!

0:44:480:44:51

# The Rhyme Rocket!

0:44:520:44:53

# The Rhyme Rocket! #

0:44:540:44:55

Mission complete! Excellent work, crew.

0:44:560:44:59

Earth to Planet Rhyme in...

0:44:590:45:01

What is it?

0:45:020:45:04

Commander, I think the poems worked.

0:45:040:45:07

-Look!

-Galloping galaxies! Where did that come from?

0:45:070:45:13

What kind of plant did you say it was again?

0:45:130:45:16

A poem plant.

0:45:160:45:18

Not a beanstalk, then?

0:45:190:45:20

Officer Ditty, I think I know a poem plant when I see one.

0:45:200:45:23

Fee-fi-fo-fum, I hear the poems of a rhyming one.

0:45:230:45:29

Hello, Mr Giant.

0:45:290:45:31

# The Rhyme Rocket!

0:45:340:45:35

# The Rhyme Rocket! #

0:45:360:45:37

The crew of the Rhyme Rocket have one mission: to collect poems from around the universe, one rhyme at a time.

When they receive a signal from Rhyme Recruits about to perform a poem in London, the crew blast off to join them. On their journey through the universe of words they gather rhymes to fuel the rocket, including a poem by Stewart Henderson.

When they reach Earth, Professor Poet and Officer Ditty beam down to perform the poem with the Rhyme Recruits.
