[Music plays]

Entering an animated train a robot is making stuff as a T.V. screen shows an assembly line. 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!

(music plays)

Gears and Wiz stand in a factory surrounded by shelves with metal pieces. Gear is a robot and Wiz is a red circular ball that floats.

Gears says WIZ! LOOK AT
ALL THESE METAL FEET!
THIS CAN ONLY MEAN ONE THING.
THEY'RE CREATING
AN ARMY OF ROBOTS!
WHAT DO THESE ROBOTS WANT?

Wiz says NO, GEARS,
IT'S...

Gears continues ARE THEY FRIENDLY?

Wiz says GEARS, IT'S...
NOT...A..

Gears says WHERE IS THE REST OF THEM?
WHEN WILL THEY BE RELEASED?
WHY DO THEY WEAR SOCKS?

A metal piece with the shape of and inverted boot appears. A man puts a white linen sheath over the metal boot.

Wiz chuckles and says GEARS, THOSE
AREN'T SOCKS FOR ROBOTS.
THEY'RE LININGS
FOR RAIN BOOTS!

Gears says WHAT?
WE'RE MAKING RAIN BOOTS?
YOU MEAN PLASTIC BOOTS
FOR JUMPING IN PUDDLES?

Wiz says YES.

Gears says FOR ROBOTS?

Wiz says NO,
FOR PEOPLE.

A man stands in front of a table with a metal boot mould covered with a yellow rubber boot.

Gears says OH, PEOPLE
AND ROBOTS.

A yellow boot comes out of a machine.

Gears says HEY!
THAT'S A FINISHED BOOT!
BUT HOW DID THEY GET THE
OUTER SHELL OVER THE SOCK?

Wiz says INJECTION MOULDS.

Gears says INJECTION MOULDS!
I'VE SEEN THIS BEFORE!

A close-up follows some tubes on a machine.

Gears says THEY SUCK THESE LITTLE
PELLETS THROUGH THESE TUBES,
AND THEN USE THEM TO
MAKE RUBBER RAIN BOOTS.

Wiz says NOT RUBBER...
PVC.

Gears says PVC?
ARE YOU SURE?
ALL I SEE IS A VAT
OF CREAMED CORN.

Now small yellow balls move through a tube.

Wiz laughs and says THAT'S THE PVC.
IT'S A TYPE OF PLASTIC.
IT'S SOFTER AND MORE
FLEXIBLE, AND WATERPROOF!

Gears says AN IMPORTANT FEATURE
WHEN MAKING RAIN BOOTS!

Now, a metal boot mould with a white sock on it moves down in a machine.

Gears says THE SOCK GETS LOWERED IN...
THE PVC GETS MELTED ON,
AND SHAPED INTO A BOOT,
AND PRESTO!

(music plays)

They both laugh. A small amount of melted PVC comes out of the mould.

Gears says I THINK THEY PRESSED
A LITTLE TOO HARD.

Wiz says THAT GLOB IS JUST A
LITTLE EXCESS PVC.

Gears says WELL, BETTER TO HAVE TOO
MUCH THAN TOO LITTLE!

The yellow boot moves up.

Wiz says THAT ONE HAS A
NICE GREEN SOLE.

Now, two boxes with PVC pellets in yellow and green appear.

Gears says YEP. SEE, THERE'S THE
GREEN FOR THE SOLE,
AND THE YELLOW FOR THE BOOT.
GOT IT?

Wiz says GREEN SOLE,
YELLOW BOOT!

Gears says QUICK LEARNER!
WIZ LOOK!
THERE'S THE SOLE
BEING PRESSED!

A metal mould of the shoe appears.

Gears says PRESTO!
NOW THE LINING GOES
ON TOP OF THE SOLE,
AND THE YELLOW
PVC IS INJECTED.

Now, the boots are lined up in a shelve.

Gears says IT'S A-BOOT TIME.
HAHA!
THAT'S WHAT I'M
TALKIN' A-BOOT.

Now a man cuts the linen excess with a machine.

Gears says MY MAN HERE IS AN
EXPERT WITH THE TRIMMER!
JUST WATCH.
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT!
A NICE, CLEAN TRIM
AND PERFECT BOOT!

The finished boots are placed in a shelf.

Gears says THIS GUY LOOKS BUSY!

Wiz says STILL LOTS OF
CUSTOMERS WAITING.

Gears says RIGHT YOU ARE!
BETTER MOVE ON.
SURE YOU DON'T NEED A
LITTLE OFF THE TOP WIZ?

Wiz says NOT WITH THAT THING...
HEY LOOK!

Other boots appear.

Gears says THEY DON'T JUST
MAKE YELLOW ONES.
THERE'S BLACK,
EVEN PINK ONES!
SOME EVEN HAVE COOL
DESIGNS ON THE SIDE!
I WONDER HOW THEY
PAINT THAT ON?

Wiz says THE ANSWER WILL
SOON BECOME CLEAR.

Gears says HUH? ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL
ME SOMETHING, WIZ?

A man puts a patterned coloured sock on the mould.

Wiz says THE ANSWER SHOULD BE
TRANSPARENT
TO YOU BY NOW GEARS.

Gears says AHA!
MYSTERY SOLVED.
THEY USE A COLOURED SOCK
AND THEN PRESS
CLEAR PVC OVER TOP!

Wiz says GLAD WE "CLEARED" THAT UP.

Gears groans and says OH WIZ...

Wiz says PRETTY BUTTERFLIES.

Gears says I DON'T THINK THEY
HAVE YOUR SIZE.

A box full of pink leftovers appears.

Gears says GOSH, LOOK AT ALL
THOSE LEFTOVER PIECES!
AND ALL THOSE BROKEN BOOTS!
THE POOR,
DISCARDED SOLES.
NOW THEY'RE JUST
TOSSING THEM AWAY.
SUCH A SAD,
SAD WASTE!

The broken boots and the leftovers are tossed into a machine.

He sobs and says THEY NEVER
EVEN HAD A CHANCE!
SO MANY PUDDLE DREAMS
AND MUDDY MEMORIES
THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
RAINY DAYS THAT...

Wiz says REUSE.
RECYCLE.

Gears says HUH?

Wiz says REUSE.
R-E-C-Y-C-L-E.

Gears says WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
WIZ?

Wiz says THEY DON'T THROW OUT THE
SCRAP PIECES AND BROKEN BOOTS.
THEY MAKE NEW BOOTS WITH THEM.

Gears says AWESOME!
THEY SHRED THE PIECES BACK
DOWN INTO PELLETS
AND REUSE THEM!
REUSE,
RECYCLE!

Wiz says HMMM. WISH I HAD
THOUGHT OF THAT.

Black pellets fall into a box.

Gears says THERE ARE THE RECYCLED BITS!
AND LOOK WIZ, YOU CAN MAKE
THEM ANY COLOUR YOU WANT...

Wiz says REALLY?
ANY COLOUR?

Gears says YEAH!
AS LONG AS IT'S BLACK.

Wiz laughs and says I THINK THAT
JOKE'S BEEN RECYCLED.

Gears says LUCKY LOTS OF PEOPLE
WANT BLACK BOOTS!

A man takes out a pair of black boots from the mould.

(music plays)

Gears says COME ON WIZ!
TIME TO TEST THESE OUT!

A puddle appears. A bunch of kids jumps in the puddle.

Gears says AH,
THE FREEDOM!
NO AMOUNT OF RAIN CAN KEEP
US FROM PLAYING OUTSIDE!

Wiz says PUDDLES ARE NO MATCH
FOR OUR RAINBOOTS.

Gears says AND LOOK AT ALL
THE FUN COLOURS!
HAHA! WE'RE TOTALLY
GETTING SPLASHED.
