Bob the Builder

A Skipload Of Surprises

Season 2, Episode 3 of 14

Bob and the team are drilling a special well at their homestead. The well has its own water tank, which needs to be raised from the ground on rocks. Wendy and Scrambler arrive for the first ever time in Sunflower Valley. Wendy has even brought a surprise - Talkie Talkies - A radio-headset system to help them in Sunflower Valley. Dizzy and Scrambler offer to find some rocks for the tank, taking their Talkie-Talkies with them. Muck can come and collect the rocks when they've found them. Wendy reminds them not to get lost! Lofty, with his new drill attachment, gets to work drilling the well while Scrambler and Dizzy explore the valley. They spot some unusual landmarks on the way - a boulder, a tree stump and some rocks! Dizzy alerts Muck on his Talkie Talkie and tries to guide Muck to their location using the unusual landmarks they saw on the way. Unfortunately, Dizzy gets her directions a little wrong and soon Muck is lost. Back at the homestead, Bob attaches a hand pump to the well and demonstrates how it'll draw water into the tank until it's needed - but now they need Dizzy's rocks! Meanwhile Dizzy has had a great idea. Using her Talkie Talkie, she realizes that they both can see a big hill with a cloud on top - she tells Muck to head straight for it. Once reunited, Muck Dizzy and Scrambler realize that they still have to work out how to get home. Dizzy contacts Roley, and by using the same method, quickly guides everyone back to the homestead. The team get to work on the rocky platform for the water tank and soon the job is done!
