[Music plays]

Entering an animated train a robot is making stuff as a T.V. screen shows a close up of a puzzle. The robot searches through a trunk, throws out items, then leaves the train, and passes by a "Making Stuff" sign with his circular robot sidekick.

A lively theme song says MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF.
MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF.
MAKING STUFF, MAKING
STUFF TO PLAY WITH.
MAKING STUFF,
MAKING STUFF TO EAT.
MAKING STUFF,
LET'S ALL GO TOGETHER 'CAUSE
MAKING STUFF,
THERE'S NEW FRIENDS TO MEET.
SO COME WHERE NOT
MANY GET TO GO,
AS WIZ AND GEARS,
START THE SHOW!
MAKE, MAKE, MAKING STUFF
MAKING STUFF!

Gears says Hey don't mind us.

Wiz says Hi.

A man sits in front of a computer and designs a puzzle.

Gear says SO WIZ, IT SEEMS THE FIRST
STEP TO MAKING PUZZLES
IS TO DESIGN YOUR PUZZLE
PIECES ON A COMPUTER.
PFFT.
EASY.
AAAH!
HARD!
THE PIECES ARE TINY,
AND THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME!

Wiz says Some are different.

Gears says WIZ, QUIT FIDGETING,
YOU'LL BOTHER THE GUY.

They spot different shapes in the puzzle.

Wiz says FISH.

Gears says OH! A FISH!
WOULD YA LOOK AT THAT!

Wiz says OCTOPUS.

Gears says WELL I'LL BE.
WIZ SAYS BOAT ANCHOR.

Gears says I GUESS YOU CAN
MAKE PUZZLE PIECES
ANY SHAPE YOU WANT.
OOOO..
WHAT'S THAT, WIZ?

Wiz says MDF.
A TYPE OF PRESSED WOOD.

A laser draws the puzzle pieces on the wood.

Gears says COOL!
THAT'S WHAT THEY'RE GOING
TO MAKE THE PUZZLE ON I BET.
THE PIECES ARE GOING
TO BE REALLY STRONG.
OKAY, HOLD ON!
WHAT'S HAPPENIN' HERE?
OH...
NO WAY!
COOL!
THAT'S AMAZING!
WHAT?
WHAT IS THAT THING WITH THE
LIGHT COMING OUT OF IT...
IT'S CUTTING THE PUZZLE!
WHAT IS THAT?

Wiz says IT'S A LASER.
A FOCUSED, CONCENTRATED
BEAM OF LIGHT.

Gears says WOW! A LASER?
YOU MEAN THAT THE
LIGHT IS SO FOCUSSED,
SO CONCENTRATED...

Wiz says AND HOT.

Gears says AND HOT, THAT IT CAN
CUT THROUGH THE BOARD?
THAT'S AMAZING!

Wiz says LASER IS GUIDED BY COMPUTER.

Gears says OOHHO!
YOU JUST DESIGN THE
PUZZLE ON THE COMPUTER,
AND THE COMPUTER TELLS THE
LASER EXACTLY HOW TO CUT IT.
I WAS A LITTLE WORRIED THE
GUY WAS GOING TO GIVE US
A PAIR OF SCISSORS
AND BE ALL LIKE
"GET TO WORK YOU TWO!"
AND THEN WE'D BE
STUCK HERE ALL NIGHT.
BUT LOOK HOW CLEAN
THE LASER CUTS!
IT DOES ALL THESE
COMPLICATED SHAPES SO EASILY!
I'M JUST...
I'M JUST...
WOW.
YOU GO LASER.
AH,
ALL DONE!
OH! LET'S GO
CHOOSE A PICTURE!
HEY, CAN WE HELP
CHOOSE A PICTURE?
AWRIGHT.
SHOW US WATCHA GOT.

They both watch as the man chooses different pictures.

They say OOOOH!
AH!
OH!

Wiz pretends to be a printer. Then a printer prints a picture of a tiger and someone cuts the picture.

Gears says OH, THEY'RE ALL SO GOOD,
YOU CHOOSE SOMETHING!
HEY WIZ !
DO YOUR IMITATION
OF A PRINTER.
(PRINTER SOUNDS)
HAH!
I LOVE THAT!
OH, A TIGER!
GOOD CHOICE!
THIS MUST BE SPECIAL INK.
BUT IT'S NOT QUITE AS
BRIGHT AS I EXPECTED.
I'M SURE THEY HAVE
A PLAN FOR THAT.
OKAY, SO SHE'S CUTTING
THE PICTURE SO IT'S
JUST THE RIGHT SIZE,
AND IT FITS THE PUZZLE.
NOW I'M PRETTY SURE SHE'S NOT
GOING TO USE THAT LITTLE KNIFE
TO CUT OUT ALL
THE PUZZLE PIECES,
'CAUSE THAT WOULD
TAKE FOREVER!
ALRIGHT, SO WHAT'S
SHE DOING NEXT?

A woman wipes the surface of the puzzle and then places the picture and puzzle together and faced down.

Wiz says WIPING POLYESTER SURFACE.

Gears says POLYESTER... THAT'S
LIKE A TYPE OF PLASTIC.
SO THE PUZZLE BOARD HAS
A PLASTIC FILM ON IT.
AND NOW SHE'S...WAIT,
WHAT'S THIS?
SHE'S TAPING DOWN THE
PICTURE SO IT'S FACE DOWN.
BUT IT'S FACE DOWN!
WIZ, SHOULD WE TELL HER
IT'S FACE DOWN?
WE...WE CAN'T SEE THE PICTURE!
UH-OH.
I DON'T KNOW IF THIS
IS GOING TO WORK OUT, WIZ!
OH LOOK, IT'S
THE COMPUTER GUY!
OKAY, SO HE'S TAKING THE
PICTURE AND THE PUZZLE
AND PLACING IT ON THIS THING.
MAKING SURE IT'S FLAT.
AND THEN CLOSING IT.
DOES HE NOTICE THAT THE
PICTURE IS UPSIDE DOWN?
I CAN'T TELL
WHAT'S GOING ON...

Wiz says THIS IS A HEAT PRESS.
THE HEAT ACTIVATES THE INK.
SO THIS THING IS
LIKE A BIG IRON!
AND WHEN IT GETS
THE PICTURE HOT,
THE INK SEEPS ONTO THE PUZZLE!
BUT HOW?
WIZ,
DO YOUR THING!

Wiz shows an animation of the plastic film and photo creating a puzzle.

Wiz says POLYESTER SURFACE.

Gears says I SEE!
THE PLASTIC FILM ON THE BOARD
HAS ALL THESE LITTLE PORES.
WHEN THEY GET HOT, THEY
OPEN UP AND LET THE INK IN.
WHEN THEY COOL, THEY CLOSE
AND TRAP THE INK INSIDE.
I GET IT!
SO...IT WORKED!
AND THE COLOURS
ARE SO VIBRANT,
NOT LIKE BEFORE.

The final product shows different puzzles.

They says OOOOH!
AHHH!
WHOA!

Gears says THE PUZZLE IS THE
SHAPE OF A DOG!
AND THE BEST PART,
WIZ...
ONCE THEY'RE DRY,
YOU CAN'T PEEL THE
COLOUR OR RUB IT OFF.
NOW SHE'S LABELING THE BOX
SO PEOPLE KNOW WHAT'S INSIDE.
MIX THEM ALL UP,
AND WATCH THIS WIZ
CAUSE IT'S PROBABLY THE
MOST IMPORTANT STEP.

A woman places the puzzle in a box and mixes up the pieces.

Wiz says WHAT?

Gears says MAKE SURE...
BE EXTRA CAREFUL...
ALWAYS BE ABSOLUTELY
POSITIVE...
WIZ SAYS WHAT?
GEARS SAYS THERE ARE
NO PIECES MISSING.

Wiz and Gears fit the puzzle pieces together.

Gears says AND THAT...
IS HOW YOU MAKE A PUZZLE.
