Get ready for an epic adventure
through the deepest, darkest depths of CBBC,
and there's no way of knowing where we'll end up next!
It's Whoops, I Missed The Bus.
There's question time, with Tee Cee.
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!
There's you lot on the TV!
It's really fun to watch and exciting,
cos you're always on the edge of your seat.
And we reveal secrets of the sheep.
Here, we have the native set-dresser.
Round up your besties,
prepare the popcorn and bagsy the comfy seat on the couch.
It's time for our favourite CBBC fanatics,
resident vloggers Laura and Myles.
Oh, again, really?
And you didn't even save me any popcorn.
Introducing you to a legend in her own right, majestic, dedicated
and extremely knowledgeable in the art of CBBC-ology.
The Dumping Ground is back on our screens. Woo-hoo!
And this week, they're going green, so I'm getting involved.
Ta-da! What next?
So, what does the greenest children's home have to do?
All the basic stuff, you know, like reducing waste.
But I want us to take this to another level.
Oh, I might have misunderstood the concept of going green.
You know. Converting rubbish into something useful.
With a few modifications, obviously.
For instance, uh... Fly-swatter!
Upcycling! Well, firstly, Mike,
using a flip-flop as a fly-swatter is a terrible idea.
You always end up swatting yourself.
But let's give this upcycling a go, shall we?
I'm uploading all our hard disks to the cloud.
Eco forward thinking. Cool.
I think I have an idea. And it only needs one basic item.
Here's your piece of paper. Put your CD on one end in the middle,
and make two folds around the CD.
Then fold the piece of paper in half, overlapping the CD.
Make a crease.
Fold the piece of paper in a quarter,
so a half of the half that you just folded, and make another crease.
Pop the CD in, and then fold over the corners on the other side
of the piece of paper...
..and slot it in, and you can secure it with a bit of tape.
Blue Peter, eat your heart out.
Now I have my own CD or DVD case that isn't too bulky
if I want to take it away on holiday.
What do you think of that, Mike?
I knew that you'd all rise to the challenge,
but these are outstanding! Well done.
OK. Well, those are really big and beautiful and cool and well-made,
but I still love you. You're my favourite.
A go-kart?! How did Harry manage to make a go-kart
in that short space of time?
Even if I had a month, I don't think I'd be able to make a go-kart.
I could make a lot of paper CD cases, though.
Who put that in there?
And is that Mike getting angry over a bottle?
Mike, stop looking at the ketchup bottle.
There's more important things to pay attention to.
Like Sasha, who's getting a new baby sister.
One daughter in and another one out?
It's not like that!
You know, this is why I didn't tell you,
cos I knew you'd be jealous!
Jealous of that poor kid, for having you as a mum?
I hope she makes you very happy.
I can't take all this drama.
Everything goes from great to terrible in a heartbeat.
I mean for Sasha, not for the ketchup bottle.
Mo and Tee took the CDs to the recycling.
Tony took the CDs from my desk.
Carmen told her to.
And is all of this upcycling causing arguments, now?
Right, that's it. No more upcycling, right. From now on, it's banned!
Oh, OK, phew, everyone's smiling again!
I think I need to listen to some relaxing
panpipe music after all that drama.
One thing I should've added...
Um, definitely remember to label your CD cases.
Which one is it?
Good job, old girl!
Yet another tip-top vlog. Smashing!
Oh, but look. Who's over there? It's our 15-second fans.
And they've got a whole lot of CBBC to discuss!
I've got two favourite shows on CBBC,
and my first one is The Next Step, because I love dancing.
I'm a ballet dancer.
And my second one is Millie Inbetween.
I love it when they argue, and it's really funny.
I love The Deep because it makes me explore a new adventure every day!
My favourite TV programme is The Dumping Ground
because of all the drama happening in it,
and my favourite people are Carmen and Tee.
My favourite show on CBBC is probably The Next Step.
I like how it's got so much drama in,
and it's really fun to watch and exciting,
cos you're always on the edge of your seat.
My favourite characters are James and Riley. Bye!
Give yourself a high-five!
You were awesome!
Do you want in on the action?
Well, then record a 15-second mini vlog
about your favourite CBBC show,
and send it in to us via the Whoops web page.
But now, prepare thyself,
for I've organised a baa-rilliant treat, especially for "ewe".
I really do hope you like it, I've come over all sheepish. Ha-ha!
You're right, those puns were baa-d.
Hello, my name's Emma.
I'm a third assistant director, or third AD as we're known,
on Shaun The Sheep.
So, this is where all the puppets are made
for the series Shaun The Sheep.
It's my job to take them to and from set.
So here's one now, this is Timmy's mum,
she's got a nice hairdo on, ready to go out for the night.
My name is Laurie Sitzia Hammond,
and I'm a stop-motion animator on Shaun The Sheep.
One of my favourite shots on this series was from an episode
called Happy Farmers' Day.
Shaun the Sheep and Bitzer are treating the farmer to, like,
a three-course meal.
Bitzer's front-of-house, he's pretending to be a waiter,
so he's out front, sort of, serving him with all the airs and graces.
We ended up using these fibrous particles as Parmesan,
and I had to very delicately sort of build up this pile,
frame by frame. I'm using a bit of glue, and then a bit more, and...
And it looks really good, and it's really believable.
And it's just a really nice, successful technique.
I really enjoyed doing it.
This shot is from an episode called Cone Of Shame.
The farmer decides that he doesn't need to wear the cone any more,
and takes the cone off.
This sequence is basically where he's run into the living room,
nicked the lampshade from the up-lamp,
and is sweating from the sheer horror of it all.
Animating the sweat was quite fiddly, little, detailed work but,
yeah, quite satisfying cos it looks very believable.
Hi, my name's Will Becher,
and I'm the director on Shaun The Sheep series five.
There's a little snail called Shelly that appears
in some of the scenes.
I think she's one of the smallest characters we've ever had
on Shaun The Sheep.
She's not in the stories, but she's in the background.
So my challenge is,
see if you can find all ten appearances of Shelly
in Shaun The Sheep series five.
This could be really hard, cos she's so small.
Here we have the native set-dresser,
hard at work in his natural habitat.
Highly skilled, he works quickly.
I think we'd better leave him to it before he discovers us.
"What should I do today?" I'm thinking.
I've just been staring at this ceiling for the past four hours.
I haven't watched The Next Step in a while, actually.
I don't know why that reminded me of The Next Step.
Like constellations in the patterns of the ceiling,
I think that is a star jump, maybe?
We haven't been practising.
But I know that we can still do a better job than Noah.
Oh! Trios... Dancing... Drama...
Riley's trying to get a trio of dancers together to represent
The Next Step at the nationals, but Riley's worried
that Noah isn't doing his best because he's hurt his back.
And I think I know why.
Look at those jumps. They are flying.
Can we slow that down and just zoom in?
They've got superpowers, jumping that high!
Of course that's going to hurt.
I can't even get out of bed without hitting into something,
let alone jumping around in a big old white room with no cushions.
Come on, guys. Put your cushions in your big white rooms.
What's great about The Next Step, still, is that,
although there is dancing in every episode,
it's not always about the moves.
Oh, was that a move...? That was a move.
Let's get down to book club.
I totally forgot today was book club.
Sometimes it's about book club.
There's some book club drama.
I would like a whole other show that's just book club drama,
if I can. Sunday afternoons on CBBC are book club.
Maybe Katie can learn something from The Next Step, here.
What did you think?
Uh, the farm? Mm-hm. I...
I thought the farm was, um...
This is my first book club.
I can't make a bad impression.
I thought the farm was...
The farm was lovely, yeah.
The...farm where the horses got turned into glue?
I never expected this on The Next Step, if I'm honest.
And she says the farm was lovely!
She doesn't know what's going on!
I mean, she should have just stuck with it, when they questioned her.
"Lovely? You think the farm's lovely?"
"I use glue a lot. It's all lovely.
"I don't know what I'm saying."
She's about to find out that there's a price to pay
for lying to your friends.
That is the most threatening smile I've ever seen.
What are they going to do to her?
A dance battle, maybe?
But anyway, as much as you all know I love the dancing,
I can't talk about it any more.
I've got to get back to reading all about those lovely horses.
SLOWED DOWN: There's a price to pay.
I don't want to find out the price.
I'll read about the horses.
That is such a big, silly jump, though, isn't it? Come on.
Ooh! Oh, I've hurt my back. OK.
There comes a time in everyone's life
where you have to prepare for your big moment.
And it can send you into a whirlwind of different emotion.
You can do this, Tee Cee! Come on!
It's OK! I got this!
At times like this, it's important, IMPORTANT, to prepare.
Or, as my dad used to say,
"Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!"
So, with that in mind, I am going to give you some top-notch tips
for the biggest moment of my - I mean, our - CBBC TV-watching life.
Hello, and welcome to Top Class, the search for the UK's smartest school.
It's the first semifinal,
let's meet our returning teams.
The Top Class semifinal? Huge!
Forget Bake Off, forget Strictly,
this, THIS is intense TV right here on CBBC.
How are we going to get through this?
Well, first things first.
How about a good night's sleep?
As you can see,
Louis was up all night, swotting up for his big moment.
Now, "How do I get a good night's sleep, Tee Cee?" I hear you ask.
How do I get a good night's sleep, Tee Cee? Well, you see,
it's quite simple.
MUSIC: Brahms' Lullaby
So you put on your favourite PJs and if, like me,
your hair tends to get in the way, just stick on a funny night cap.
Get all the energy out of your system.
And finally, snuggle down,
shut your eyes and prepare to drift off to sleep.
ROCK MUSIC Aah!
And if that doesn't work, always find a good source of motivation.
Louis, welcome back.
What do you think has got your team to the semifinals?
Believing in ourselves and saying that we can do it.
And as well as motivational quotes,
a positive mind-set and enthusiasm are also key.
I call it Tee-Cee-ing!
# I live my day as if it was the last. #
And finally, tip three for the Top Class semifinal is...
..keep reminding yourself that even the teachers...
Yes, they get it wrong.
Which female pop star sings this song?
# Take me on a date
# I deserve it, babe #
Eliza Doolittle? No, it's Meghan Trainor.
I don't know about you, but I would CLASS that as TOP work from Tee Cee!
And now, please welcome to the small screen our furriest,
scaliest and featheriest of fans!
I love watching Rank The Prank.
I'm so glad I'm safe here at home, though!
The worst prank you could ever play on me is if you filmed me
and sent it in to a show like Whoops I Missed The Bus.
But you'd never do that to me, Emily, would you?
Wait a minute, what's going on?
Bring that camera back to me, Elysia.
Ah, that's it.
Great shot, and lovely pose from me.
No, wait, where you going? Come on!
Oh... Come back! No...
Oh, nearly. Yeah... No! Oh, no!
That's it. Steady hand. No!
Oh, this is so awkward.
So, she said to me,
"You cannot pirouette like that, Tango."
OMG, I am, like, so over A-Troupe.
Yeah, G-Troupe is where it's at, Pepsi.
This is weird.
A pet watching TV, watching pets watch TV, eh?
What you looking at, Jack?
Have I got summat in my teeth?
Right, I'm bored. See ya!
That was awesome.
What a purr-fect bunch!
And if you've ever wished that you could hear your pet's
inner thoughts, record a 20-second clip of them watching CBBC
and send it to us through the Whoops web page.
Your furry friend could be on t'telly box!
What you thinking, pet?
Now, what's a tastier treat than a slice of pizza with a side of chips?
How about a bite-sized portion of CBBC's very best bits
from this week?
I'm proper good to you, aren't I?
When's the scare going to come out?
I don't know, but it's...tension.
Come in, take a look.
Oh, my sister's scared!
And my mum!
My mum is running away!
For each move, take a shot using the animation app on your tablet.
And then move the scene along by one small step,
and take another shot!
OK. I've sliced and diced the animation. Hey, guys!
I think it's time to take a look at our mini masterpiece.
Here we go.
Nice work, guys!
L. Lamb chops.
Nice! OK, your letter is M, Emily. M.
Emily, your letter is P.
Pea. Pea! Yeah, a pea, yeah!
A pea, a pea!
Quinoa. Quail's egg! Quinoa, quinoa!
All good things must come to an end. But fear not, old chum.
You can catch everything you've seen, and more,
over on the CBBC iPlayer. Now, I'm off to my nan's for a cup of tea...
And, of course, I've missed the bus again. Smashing.
At least it's not raining.
Oh, dear. Oh, yes, it is.
