# I can make my world come true All my dreams will see me through

0:00:060:00:11

-# It doesn't matter What may come my way...

-No! No!

0:00:110:00:14

# Believe me now I will win some day. #

0:00:140:00:18

-ALL CHANT: Celebrities falling over! Celebrities falling over!

-All right, keep your wigs on!

0:00:190:00:25

-Celebrities falling over!

-Lol, saved you a seat.

0:00:250:00:28

Sorry mate, I promised I'd sit with Bouncer.

0:00:280:00:32

ALL CHANT: Celebrities falling over! Celebrities falling over!

0:00:340:00:37

And we're away.

0:00:370:00:40

-Hurry up, we're missing the show.

-Someone's deleted all the settings.

0:00:400:00:44

Justine's always messing with the remote.

0:00:440:00:47

-I'll mess with your head if you don't watch it.

-Can you fix it, Bounce?

0:00:470:00:51

-I'll try.

-You're a genius.

0:00:510:00:53

-Er...it may take a while.

-But we'll miss the programme.

0:00:530:00:58

You know, if we had a digital plasma screen...

0:00:580:01:02

-ALL: Get you!

-Used to something a bit more bling?

0:01:020:01:05

I was just saying.

0:01:050:01:07

Bit of a loner, ain't he?

0:01:120:01:13

HE ROARS

0:01:210:01:23

We should be doing homework, not messing about.

0:01:330:01:36

You're becoming a right Goody Two-shoes, Rio Wellard.

0:01:360:01:40

No, I'm not, but if Mike catches us playing with this, we'll be grounded till we're 50.

0:01:400:01:44

Quick, put it in reverse.

0:01:440:01:47

It's stuck. Go in and get it.

0:01:470:01:49

Why me? This was your idea.

0:01:490:01:52

Fine, I'll go in. At least I'll be away from the smell of chicken!

0:01:520:01:55

Chick chick chick chicken!

0:01:550:01:57

< Wolfie, can you come to the office for a moment, please?

0:01:570:02:01

Roxy!

0:02:030:02:06

Quick! Hide!

0:02:060:02:07

Right, I thought you should know, another one of these came for you today.

0:02:100:02:16

-I don't want it.

-There's plenty of kids in here would give their right arm for something like this.

0:02:190:02:24

Just put it in the drawer with the others.

0:02:240:02:28

OK, your call.

0:02:280:02:30

Boy, that was close. What you doing?

0:02:320:02:36

-Looking through the drawer, stupid.

-Roxy! That's private.

-So?

0:02:360:02:40

-They might come back.

-Laid an egg yet, chicken boy?

0:02:400:02:45

What is it?

0:02:450:02:47

Over £1,000, all in cheques made out to Wolfie. His parents must be loaded.

0:02:470:02:53

And he obviously doesn't want it. All the more for us.

0:02:530:02:56

You're not going to steal it?

0:02:560:02:58

There's more than one way to skin a wolf. We're gonna be his new best friends.

0:02:580:03:03

-You mean, make him like us so much that he gives us the money?

-Exactly.

0:03:030:03:07

But pretending to be mates with him just to get something, isn't that a bit mean?

0:03:070:03:12

Over £1,000, Rio! Think about it.

0:03:120:03:16

We could take a holiday - you, me and Chantal.

0:03:160:03:19

The Wellards, back together again!

0:03:190:03:22

HE WHISTLES

0:03:260:03:29

SHE BURPS

0:03:350:03:37

Finally, the Wellards are in the money.

0:03:480:03:52

-What money?

-Mind your own business.

0:03:520:03:55

Oh, Mike!

0:03:550:03:57

Rio and Roxy are plotting something.

0:03:570:03:59

Lol, fancy a game of footie?

0:04:120:04:14

Sure, if I can be Michael Owen.

0:04:140:04:16

Bouncer! Where d'you come from?

0:04:180:04:20

I've found a wobbly banister.

0:04:200:04:22

Someone could have an accident.

0:04:220:04:24

Never noticed that.

0:04:240:04:26

How about we fix it, together?

0:04:260:04:28

-Well, can't Mike do it?

-Cutbacks. He's rushed off his feet.

0:04:280:04:32

Come on, Barry. It's dead simple.

0:04:320:04:35

Don't call me simple, Paul.

0:04:350:04:37

Not you, Barry, the banister! Come on, let's go and get a screwdriver.

0:04:370:04:41

-Screwdriver, come on then. Let's go. Screwdriver.

-Come on.

0:04:410:04:45

Maybe we can have that game of footie later?

0:04:450:04:48

DOOR CLOSES

0:04:480:04:50

Right, time to move in for the kill.

0:04:500:04:54

Wait. None of us have really been that friendly with Wolfie before, he might get suspicious.

0:04:540:05:02

What do YOU suggest, Einstein?

0:05:020:05:06

-We need a beard.

-A beard?

0:05:060:05:08

-I'm only ten!

-No, idiot!

0:05:080:05:11

A person who acts as a disguise for us.

0:05:110:05:14

Someone sweet and friendly.

0:05:140:05:16

We're already splitting the cash three ways.

0:05:160:05:18

Don't want anyone else muscling in.

0:05:180:05:20

So we don't tell them the real reason.

0:05:200:05:23

We just need to find the right person.

0:05:230:05:26

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:05:260:05:27

Hey, anyone fancy making some sock puppets?

0:05:290:05:36

Seen Wolfie?

0:05:380:05:40

He's in the games room, I think.

0:05:400:05:42

-Why?

-Got a present for him.

0:05:420:05:45

Ain't his birthday, is it?

0:05:450:05:46

No, his aura's been quite dark lately.

0:05:460:05:49

We just wanted to cheer him up.

0:05:490:05:51

Who's "we"?

0:05:510:05:53

Me, Rebecca and the Wellards. Those guys are so thoughtful, aren't they?

0:05:530:05:58

But I don't understand.

0:06:030:06:05

-It's nothing.

-Just a gesture to show how much we care.

0:06:050:06:09

And that we want to be friends.

0:06:090:06:11

I don't know what to say. No-one's ever done this for me before.

0:06:110:06:15

-Coffee cream's my favourite.

-We want to know all your favourite things, Wolfie.

0:06:150:06:20

Well, I love the Harlem Globetrotters,

0:06:240:06:27

building dens, hunting for toads.

0:06:270:06:32

That's our favourite thing too.

0:06:320:06:34

Yeah, totally.

0:06:340:06:36

Come on, let's go make a nice padded box for the toads.

0:06:380:06:42

I'll go get my wellies.

0:06:420:06:44

-Talk about a piece of cake!

-In a week he'll like us so much, he'll beg us to take his money.

0:06:470:06:52

£1,000!

0:06:520:06:54

We'll be rolling in it!

0:06:540:06:55

How come Wolfie never said he was rich?

0:07:280:07:31

Cos he knew slime balls would take advantage.

0:07:310:07:33

He'll be gutted when he finds out that's why that lot are sucking up to him.

0:07:330:07:37

-We need to tell him.

-Yeah. If he wants to hide his cash away, that's his business.

0:07:370:07:42

Mmm, seems like an awful waste, though.

0:07:420:07:45

Imagine what you could buy with that kind of cash.

0:07:450:07:48

Justine's right. We can't let Wolfie waste that dosh.

0:08:080:08:11

-What do we do?

-Play those snakes at their own game.

-Suck up to Wolfie too?

0:08:110:08:16

More like doing him a favour, protecting him.

0:08:160:08:20

Showing him who his real mates are.

0:08:200:08:22

If he wants to thank us with cash, that's up to him.

0:08:220:08:26

Exactly. We've got work to do.

0:08:260:08:28

And remember, this isn't for us, it's for Wolfie.

0:08:280:08:32

I can't believe it. A whole hour searching, and not one toad.

0:08:340:08:37

We still had fun, didn't we?

0:08:370:08:39

Best day of my life.

0:08:390:08:41

Me too. Thanks, guys.

0:08:410:08:43

Wolfie, just the person. We heard you like the Harlem Globetrotters.

0:08:440:08:48

So why don't we go shoot some hoops?

0:08:480:08:50

-What, me and you guys?

-Who else? Come on!

0:08:500:08:53

I do believe we have a contest on our hands.

0:08:570:09:01

I suppose I'd better be getting back then.

0:09:010:09:04

-What is that?

-"Mike loves Elaine"?

0:09:040:09:07

Mike, I think a letter would have been more personal.

0:09:070:09:11

Oh, ha ha.

0:09:110:09:12

This is somebody's idea of a joke.

0:09:120:09:15

Probably kids from the village.

0:09:150:09:16

We'll clean it up for you.

0:09:160:09:18

Oh, thanks, lads.

0:09:180:09:21

Oh, we will, will we?

0:09:210:09:24

Oh, come on, bruv. Another job for the Chuckle Brothers, eh? Eh?

0:09:240:09:30

I don't do cleaning.

0:09:310:09:33

All hail to King Wolfie.

0:09:410:09:43

You've won the Dumping Ground competition, King For A Day.

0:09:440:09:49

Since when has there been a...

0:09:490:09:50

Since this morning, Brainiac.

0:09:500:09:53

You get to do whatever you like.

0:09:530:09:55

Borrow people's stuff, wear people's clothes, eat whatever you want.

0:09:550:10:01

But...why me?

0:10:020:10:06

We didn't pick you, Wolfie, the universe did.

0:10:060:10:09

It knows when you need a friend.

0:10:090:10:12

King for a day, can't top that.

0:10:120:10:15

ALL: Surprise!

0:10:370:10:38

For me?

0:10:380:10:41

-We knew how much you liked building dens.

-Cheers, guys,

0:10:410:10:44

you're the best mates ever!

0:10:440:10:46

I think it's time we had a little chat. Don't you?

0:10:480:10:52

I know your game. Well, we saw Wolfie first and he's ours!

0:10:530:10:57

You can't own people, Roxy.

0:10:570:10:58

-You can't pretend to like them cos you want their money.

-YOU never bothered with Wolfie before.

0:10:580:11:04

What? So, you've lied to me!

0:11:040:11:06

You said this was to cheer him up, not to take his money.

0:11:060:11:10

Am I hearing right?

0:11:100:11:11

You've been competing for Wolfie's friendship, cos you heard he's got a few quid?

0:11:110:11:16

Cos if you have...

0:11:160:11:18

You're like my parents.

0:11:180:11:20

They try to buy me off with presents to make up for what they did to me.

0:11:250:11:29

I thought you cared about me, but it turns out you're just the same.

0:11:290:11:35

Wolfie!

0:11:370:11:39

Wolfie.

0:11:420:11:43

Wolfie, wait!

0:11:430:11:45

Wolfie, not in there, it's not safe!

0:11:450:11:47

Quick, get him out!

0:11:540:11:56

Wolfie!

0:11:560:11:58

-You all right there, mate?

-Yeah, I think so.

0:11:580:12:01

Give him some air. No harm done.

0:12:040:12:06

-You scared us to death.

-We were really worried.

0:12:060:12:10

-Honestly?

-Honestly.

0:12:100:12:13

-Someone's taken the screws out.

-What idiot would do that?

0:12:130:12:16

-Me.

-What?!

0:12:160:12:19

I don't understand.

0:12:190:12:21

When I fixed the TV for everyone, it felt like I was home again.

0:12:210:12:26

And I figured, as long as there was things for me to fix then...

0:12:260:12:30

You had reason to stay.

0:12:300:12:32

So, the banister, the graffiti, that was you too?

0:12:320:12:37

Wolfie could have been really hurt.

0:12:370:12:39

I know. It was stupid. I'm so sorry.

0:12:390:12:42

The show's over. Bouncer, looks like you have a real job to do now.

0:12:420:12:46

-Reckon you can fix that?

-Sure can.

0:12:460:12:48

Wolfie, I'm so sorry. We thought we did this for you, but it was partly about the cash.

0:12:480:12:55

But it's you we really care about. Money's not important.

0:12:550:13:00

Money in itself isn't bad, guys, depends what you do with it.

0:13:000:13:03

I know, and I've been thinking.

0:13:030:13:05

It's time I spent my cash wisely.

0:13:050:13:08

You know, Barry, I reckon this is the best pinball machine in t'country.

0:13:090:13:14

You're right there, brother. Lucky our mate had a few bob to pay for it.

0:13:140:13:18

Someone mention my name?

0:13:180:13:20

Oi, you! Stick around, there's more Beaker to come.

0:13:240:13:28

SCREAMING

0:13:300:13:31

This is so unfair.

0:13:380:13:40

-We were only having a laugh!

-Elaine, where's your sense of humour?

0:13:400:13:44

I am sick of being the target of your practical jokes.

0:13:440:13:47

You? A target?

0:13:470:13:48

Whatever gave you that idea?

0:13:480:13:50

Left a bit. No, no, no, right a bit.

0:13:510:13:56

This way. Whooosh. Steady.

0:13:560:13:58

Fire!

0:14:000:14:02

Chill, Elaine. Egg yolk is good for your hair.

0:14:090:14:12

This is not on. I've had enough of you and I...

0:14:120:14:15

SHE SNIFFS

0:14:150:14:17

Mike! What happened?

0:14:170:14:21

-Rio was being "helpful".

-You asked me to put the bins out.

0:14:210:14:24

Out the bedroom window?!

0:14:240:14:27

CRASH, FLY BUZZES

0:14:310:14:34

You kids have no respect for us.

0:14:420:14:43

Mike's right. You stay here for an hour and reflect on your behaviour.

0:14:430:14:48

-ALL: Oooooohhh(!)

-You're so strict Elaine!

0:14:480:14:51

Which is good. Strictness is necessary in your work.

0:14:510:14:54

Pity we can't hang around to admire it.

0:14:540:14:57

-Where are you going?

-We'd love to stay, but we've made plans.

0:14:570:15:01

Shelley! What a nice surprise.

0:15:090:15:12

All the usual suspects, I see.

0:15:120:15:15

Plus a new face. You must be Rio Wellard.

0:15:150:15:18

And you are?

0:15:180:15:20

-I'm Shelley Appleton. I'm your temporary head care worker.

-Hi, Shelley.

0:15:200:15:24

Sorry. Mike Milligan. I'm your temporary care worker, cook and general Mr Fix-it.

0:15:240:15:30

Well, Mr... Fix this!

0:15:300:15:32

Are you two responsible for this?

0:15:320:15:35

Who, us?

0:15:350:15:38

WATER DRIPS

0:15:420:15:45

WATER GUSHES

0:15:470:15:49

Right, I'm in charge now and I'm gonna start by upping punishment times.

0:15:550:16:00

Excellent idea!

0:16:000:16:02

Let's see, there are five of you, so five hours sounds about right.

0:16:020:16:05

-That's all day!

-Yep!

-What are we supposed to do?

0:16:050:16:09

Amuse yourselves(!)

0:16:090:16:11

That shouldn't be too hard.

0:16:150:16:17

Easy!

0:16:170:16:19

I'm something beginning with "B".

0:16:280:16:31

Bored.

0:16:310:16:33

Give me a "B".

0:16:330:16:35

ALL: B.

0:16:350:16:37

-Give me an "O".

-Forget it. I can't believe you idiots soaked Shelley.

0:16:370:16:41

Stop moaning, it could be worse.

0:16:410:16:44

-Like how, exactly?

-Shelley could have made us taste her cooking.

0:16:440:16:48

-What's so bad about that?

-Trust me.

0:16:480:16:51

You never want to go near her spaghetti Bolognese. Eugh!

0:16:510:16:57

I realised as soon as I saw it, her sauce was part of an evil plot.

0:16:570:17:01

That stuff was dangerous in the wrong hands, and something told me Shelley's were the wrong hands.

0:17:010:17:07

This sauce would spell disaster for kids everywhere.

0:17:080:17:11

One drop of the stuff and your childhood was gone.

0:17:110:17:14

It was an age accelerator.

0:17:140:17:16

The whole planet had just 15 minutes left

0:17:160:17:19

at gas mark four.

0:17:190:17:21

We were up against an evil genius that planned to make the universe an adult-only zone.

0:17:210:17:28

All adults were beamed up to Shelley's space ship before they turned grey and wrinkly.

0:17:280:17:34

The kids of planet earth were doomed.

0:17:340:17:39

There was only one chance.

0:17:390:17:42

Build their own space ship and fight back.

0:17:460:17:48

A few tweaks...and it was ready.

0:17:510:17:53

OK, time to lock and load.

0:18:010:18:03

Everyone wanted to pilot the beast,

0:18:030:18:05

but there was only one guy up to the job.

0:18:050:18:08

Fasten your seat belts.

0:18:100:18:12

Operation Spag Bol is...

0:18:130:18:17

..gooooooooo!

0:18:190:18:21

Shelley thought her plan was foolproof. Yeah, right.

0:18:460:18:49

SHE GASPS AND SCREAMS

0:18:510:18:53

They sent their best fighters,

0:18:570:18:58

but with the fate of the world's children at stake, nothing stopped us.

0:18:590:19:03

It looked like an impossible task...

0:19:070:19:11

for a normal kid, that is!

0:19:110:19:14

Time was running out, but he listened to the inner voice.

0:19:170:19:20

-Lol, let the sauce be with you!

-Oh, no!

0:19:200:19:22

-NO!

-Shelley's sauce was about to explode.

0:19:270:19:30

He had just seconds to escape.

0:19:300:19:33

Bags of time!

0:19:330:19:34

Mission Spag Bol is complete.

0:19:410:19:44

THEY CHEER

0:19:460:19:49

And the staff never bothered us again.

0:19:490:19:52

What do you want, Grandad?

0:19:550:19:57

Charming(!)

0:19:570:19:59

-I'll keep these for myself then.

-No!

-Wait!

0:19:590:20:03

Enjoy! But...don't tell Shelley.

0:20:030:20:08

You're a star.

0:20:080:20:10

"What a star"(!)

0:20:120:20:14

You think he's Mr Nice Guy, don't you?

0:20:140:20:19

Think again.

0:20:190:20:20

Mr Nice Guy is just a front.

0:20:200:20:24

Really he's Mad Mike.

0:20:240:20:27

He's secretly out to destroy everything we kids love.

0:20:320:20:36

Can no-one save the Dumping Ground kids from the invincible...

0:20:430:20:48

..Mad Mike?

0:20:480:20:50

Wait! What's this? Is it a boy or is it a spider?

0:20:530:20:57

# Tarantula Boy!... #

0:20:570:20:58

No, it's Tarantula Boy.

0:20:580:21:00

There was a time when he was just an average care-home kid.

0:21:000:21:04

He was forced to work 30 hours a day, nine days a week.

0:21:040:21:08

But no matter how spotless he made the place, Mad Mike always found dirt somewhere.

0:21:080:21:14

The poor little boy looked doomed.

0:21:160:21:19

Tarantula Boy, one. Big Hairy Monsters, nil.

0:21:260:21:30

Life was never quite the same after that.

0:21:300:21:33

He'd found his true destiny.

0:21:360:21:38

Tarantula Boy was born.

0:21:430:21:46

Oi! No-one grows extra limbs and threatens me and my mates.

0:21:490:21:52

Take this, and that.

0:21:560:21:59

Take this, you big hairy monster.

0:21:590:22:02

Oops.

0:22:050:22:07

Tarantula Boy, one.

0:22:130:22:16

Big Hairy Monsters, one. He needed help, but who?

0:22:160:22:20

Who could he turn to?

0:22:200:22:21

They knew exactly what to do.

0:22:260:22:28

Was time running out for Tarantula Boy?

0:22:300:22:33

Of course not.

0:22:330:22:36

Take that!

0:22:400:22:42

Poor Mad Mike, not a leg to stand on.

0:22:430:22:47

Tarantula Gang, two.

0:22:470:22:50

Big Hairy Monsters, one. Finished!

0:22:500:22:53

Someone get the straitjacket.

0:22:530:22:55

Only easing the boredom. Beats looking at your ugly mug.

0:22:550:22:58

It was you and your dustbin gag got us here in the first place.

0:22:580:23:02

-And your stupid water fight didn't?

-Don't go blaming me!

0:23:020:23:06

Quiet! Will you keep the noise down?

0:23:060:23:09

Why should we? This is barbaric! Social Services will hear about this.

0:23:090:23:13

I AM Social Services.

0:23:130:23:15

"I AM Social Services"(!)

0:23:170:23:20

-Oh, she's such a pain.

-She's harmless.

0:23:200:23:22

She's stupid, but she's harmless.

0:23:220:23:25

She's not as stupid as she makes out.

0:23:250:23:27

Once she ruled over an entire kingdom,

0:23:270:23:31

a land where kids were locked up just for being kids.

0:23:330:23:36

The evil child-catching beast that lived there hated all children.

0:23:430:23:48

The streets weren't safe and everyone hid.

0:23:480:23:51

This was a creature so hideous, no-one dared to look at its face.

0:23:510:23:56

The child catcher could smell a victim several miles away.

0:23:580:24:02

Don't be scared, my lovelies!

0:24:020:24:04

Come and get your presents!

0:24:040:24:07

These two poor, unfortunate souls didn't stand a chance.

0:24:130:24:17

SHE LAUGHS MANIACALLY

0:24:250:24:27

They were locked up and the key thrown away.

0:24:310:24:34

They needed a hero to rescue them but Tracy was fed up of always saving the day.

0:24:360:24:41

And so she left.

0:24:430:24:44

No! Come back, Tracy! We need you. Help us!

0:24:440:24:48

So with Tracy gone, the inmates settled down to a lifetime of chore-and-housework horror.

0:24:500:24:56

But being the unselfish, wonderful, superhero she is,

0:25:050:25:08

Tracy decided to drop some presents off to her old mates.

0:25:080:25:13

But these weren't soft, cuddly teddy bears.

0:25:130:25:17

These were Dumping Ground kids!

0:25:190:25:22

The child catcher didn't give up easily,

0:25:270:25:32

but I soon had her dancing to a different tune.

0:25:340:25:38

MUSICAL BOX PLAYS

0:25:380:25:40

ALL: Go, Tracy!

0:25:400:25:42

CHEERING

0:25:420:25:45

Sorted. Everyone rescued!

0:25:470:25:50

CLOCK TICKS

0:25:520:25:54

Five hours are up. I think that lot will have definitely got in line by now.

0:26:010:26:06

BOTH: Definitely.

0:26:060:26:08

< LAUGHTER

0:26:110:26:13

-What are you doing?

-We're amusing ourselves.

0:26:140:26:17

-Like you said.

-We found something that makes us laugh.

-Barking.

-Stupid!

-Mad!

0:26:170:26:22

-Oh, what's that?

-ALL: You!

0:26:220:26:24

ALL: Freedom!

0:26:270:26:28

Oh, it's good to be back!

0:26:360:26:38

# I can make my world come true All my dreams will see me through

0:26:390:26:43

-# And the fight won't get me down

-No! No!

0:26:430:26:46

# My dreams will turn things All around

0:26:460:26:48

# With a smile upon my face I can see a better place

0:26:480:26:52

-# It doesn't matter What may come my way...

-No! No!

0:26:520:26:55

# Believe me now I will win some day. #
