There's no time to sit around -

1:06:321:06:34

Earth calling the Rhyme Rocket.

1:06:451:06:48

1:07:071:07:12

Bye, Rhyme Rocket.

1:07:121:07:15

Goodbye. Those words have started to fill our tanks already.

1:07:151:07:20

RHYME-A-LOT SQUEALS Professor... What are you doing?

1:07:201:07:24

-Can you catch that balloon!

-Act like a baboon?

1:07:241:07:27

Well, OK. If you really want me to. Ooh-ooh, ah-ah!

1:07:271:07:32

-PROFESSOR POET LAUGHS

-Officer Ditty, what are you doing?

1:07:321:07:36

-Acting like a baboon, like you asked.

-I said, "Catch the balloon!"

1:07:361:07:41

Oh.

1:07:411:07:43

-SHE SNIFFS

-I can smell something.

1:07:431:07:45

My mum's a superhero

1:07:501:07:52

She flies to collect me from school

1:07:521:07:55

My friends are oh, so jealous

1:07:551:07:58

They think she's really cool

1:07:581:08:01

My dad's a circus trainer

1:08:011:08:03

He can tame lions to act like mice

1:08:031:08:07

We even have a big old tiger

1:08:071:08:09

Who can figure-skate on ice

1:08:091:08:13

My sister's a fairy princess

1:08:151:08:18

Who wears a sparkling gown

1:08:181:08:21

She'll grant you three wishes

1:08:211:08:23

But won't let you wear her crown

1:08:231:08:27

And that's just my family

1:08:271:08:30

They're really one-of-a-kind

1:08:301:08:32

Is your family the same as mine

1:08:321:08:34

Or is it in my mind?

1:08:341:08:37

The fuel gauge has gone up again!

1:08:451:08:48

I'll tell you what's on my mind - getting ready for the big party.

1:08:481:08:53

I don't know what to do next!

1:08:531:08:55

Well, let's give you some ideas. Activate the soundascope!

MUSIC PLAYS

1:09:031:09:06

It's the sound of a big party!

1:09:061:09:11

Boom, boom, pop! Boom, boom, whee!

1:09:111:09:15

Watch me move.

1:09:151:09:17

-Boom, boom, pop! Boom, boom, whee!

-I'm in the groove!

1:09:171:09:22

Oh, Professor Poet - you're a dancing ace!

1:09:221:09:26

Careful you don't fall on your face.

1:09:261:09:29

Oh, hang on... The sound's changing.

1:09:291:09:33

Oh, no, everyone's leaving.

1:09:331:09:36

The party's over.

1:09:361:09:38

Boo-hoo!

1:09:381:09:40

Boo-hoo!

1:09:401:09:42

Boo-hoo!

1:09:421:09:44

Boo-hoo!

1:09:441:09:48

There, there - I think I can spot something that will cheer you up.

1:09:481:09:53

-Oh, really?

-Mm. Look.

1:09:531:09:56

William went up in a rocket To see where it would go

1:09:561:10:01

It flew round and round And round the sun

1:10:011:10:04

And burnt his left big toe

1:10:041:10:06

Then he flew round the Moon To see if it was made of cheese

1:10:061:10:09

It crash-landed in some Camembert And William hurt his knees

1:10:091:10:14

Then he flew round the Milky Way And caught a trail of stars

1:10:141:10:18

He brought them home To his cosy house

1:10:181:10:21

Where he keeps them safe in jars.

1:10:211:10:24

Botheration! Come on, behave.

1:10:261:10:29

It's all going horribly wrong.

1:10:291:10:33

Maybe a rhyme would help to lighten the mood.

1:10:331:10:36

Excellent suggestion. How about a limerick?

1:10:361:10:40

By the light of four silvery moons A poet was hanging balloons

1:10:401:10:45

But that high-flying dreamer Got caught in a streamer

1:10:451:10:50

And made us both laugh like baboons.

1:10:501:10:52

THEY LAUGH Oh, Commander.

1:10:521:10:55

I think the professor enjoyed it so much that he wants to hear it again.

Oh, Commander!

1:11:171:11:19

I just don't know where to put these now.

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

After receiving a signal of rhyme activity from Rhyme Recruits in London, the team blast off to join them and collect their poem. Zooming through the universe of words, the crew gather rhymes to fuel the rocket. They discover a poem by Laura Dockrill and get sucked into a rhymehole full of space junk.

When they get to Earth, Professor Poet and Officer Ditty beam down to perform a poem about family and friends with the Rhyme Recruits.
