[Music plays]

Entering an animated train a robot is making stuff as a T.V. screen shows an a kid playing a harmonica. 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!

A man inspects the different pieces of a harmonica and then uses it.

Gears says WANNA KNOW WHAT ALL
OF THESE PIECES PUT TOGETHER
ARE GOING TO MAKE?
KNOW WHAT THIS IS?
MY BUDDY HERE IS
GOING TO SHOW YOU!
TAKE IT AWAY!

Gears SINGS'CAUSE WE'RE
GONNA MAKE HARMONICAS
IN THIS BIG FACTORY.

Wiz says I LOVE HARMONICAS.

Gears says ME TOO WIZ!
WHAT KIND OF METAL IS THAT?

Wiz says THIS IS BRASS.

Gears says I LOVE THE COLOUR OF BRASS.
I WISH I WAS BRASSY.
AND SASSY!
IT LOOKS LIKE HE'S SHAVING IT.

Wiz says THINNING OUT THE EDGE.

Gears says LOOK AT THE LITTLE
PIECES FLY AROUND!
THEY'RE DANCING!
AND AFTER HE THINS
OUT THE BRASS,
HE TAKES IT TO THIS MACHINE.
LOOKS LIKE HE'S PUNCHING
OUT TINY PIECES FROM IT.
LOOK, HE'S COLLECTING THE
PIECES IN THAT DRAWER.
WHAT ARE THEY FOR?

Wiz says Those are
reeds.

Gears says REEDS HUH?
AND WHAT DO THEY DO?

Wiz says THEY MAKE THE SOUND.

Gears says THOSE LITTLE TINY BITS
OF BRASS MAKE THE SOUND?
NO WAY!
WHAT'S THIS WIZ?

A woman attaches brass to weeds to a metal plate.

Wiz says ATTACHING REEDS TO PLATE.

Gears says I SEE.
THEY LOOK LIKE LITTLE KEYS.
SHE'S ATTACHING THEM ONE
BY ONE TO THAT METAL PLATE.
THEN SHE STAMPS THEM
WITH THAT METAL PRESS,
SO THEY STAY PUT.
BUT WHY DOES SHE KEEP THEM
IN DIFFERENT COMPARTMENTS?
AREN'T THEY ALL THE SAME?

Wiz says DIFFERENT SIZES.

Gears says YOU'RE RIGHT WIZ.
THEY GO FROM SMALL TO TALL.
BUT I STILL DON'T SEE
HOW THEY MAKE A SOUND.
HEY IT'S
THAT GUY!

A man whips the long and short sheets making sounds.

Wiz says LONG SHEET
MAKES LOW SOUND.
UH HUH... AND WHAT DOES
THE SMALL SHEET DO?
A HIGHER SOUND.

Gears says WIZ,
I GET IT!
WHEN THE WIND BLOWS PAST IT,
THE REED VIBRATES
AND MAKES A SOUND.
THE LONG REED
MAKES A LOW SOUND.
AND THE SHORT ONE
MAKES A HIGH SOUND!
REEDS ARE AMAZING!
SO WHAT IS SHE DOING WIZ?

Wiz says TUNING
THE REEDS.

A woman begins to set up the harmonicas.

Gears says RIGHT, SHE'S MAKING
SURE EACH REED
MAKES EXACTLY
THE RIGHT NOTE.
SO THE HARMONICA IS IN TUNE...
VERY IMPORTANT.
LOOKS LIKE WE'RE READY TO
START ASSEMBLING
THE HARMONICAS!
THERE'S A BRASS PLATE
WITH THE REEDS ON IT.
THERE'S THE PLASTIC COMB.
THEY'VE GOT HOLES IN THEM.
I BET THAT'S WHERE THE AIR
GOES IN WHEN YOU BLOW ON THEM.
AND LOOK... ANOTHER
BRASS PLATE WITH REEDS.
THESE HARMONICAS ARE
GOING TO SOUND AMAZING!
NOW THEY SCREW
THEM ALL TOGETHER
SO THEY'RE NICE AND TIGHT.

Each harmonica has a company name stamped to the side as well as the key.

Gears says AND HERE THEY'RE STAMPING
ON THE COMPANY NAME.
AND WHAT ARE THEY
STAMPING ON THE SIDE, WIZ?

Wiz says The key of the harmonica.

Gears says THIS ONE IS IN THE KEY OF C.
IT'S IMPORTANT TO KNOW THE KEY
WHEN YOU'RE GOING TO PLAY
WITH OTHER INSTRUMENTS.
WHAT ARE THESE WIZ?

Wiz says ROLL OF THIN METAL.
FEEDING INTO STAMPING MACHINE.

A man places the tops and bottoms of the harmonicas together.

Gears says SO THE MACHINE IS
STAMPING A METAL SHAPE
OUT OF THAT ROLL OF METAL.
I WONDER WHAT THAT'S USED FOR?
OH, I KNOW!
FOLLOW THAT GUY!
OH! THOSE ARE THE TOPS AND
BOTTOMS OF THE HARMONICAS!
THAT'LL GIVE THEM A
SMOOTH METAL SURFACE
TO PROTECT THE REED PLATES.
I THINK THESE HARMONICS
ARE DONE NOW WIZ!

Wiz says ONE MORE STEP.
QUALITY CONTROL.

A man plays each harmonica on the air box.

Gears says OH, RIGHT,
WIZ!
HE'S MAKING SURE
EVERY HARMONICA
SOUNDS JUST RIGHT.
HE SLIDES EVERY HARMOA
ACROSS THIS AIR BOX
AND LISTENS TO THE SO.
ALL OF THE TESTING HERE IS
DONE BY REAL HUMAN EARS, WIZ.
NOT BY MACHINES.
BUT NOW, I'D LIKE TO HEAR
A REAL HUMAN PLAYING IT!

Each kid plays the harmonica.

Gears says NICE!
YOU GUYS CAN PLAY!
I WISH I COULD BEAT BOX.
OH YEEEAAAHH!
C'MON!
LOOK AT THAT!
EVERYONE PLAYING
IN PERFECT HARMONY!
ALL THE HARMONICAS
SOUND GREAT, WIZ!
AND,
TAKE HER HOME...
BRAVO.
