[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!

Wiz and Gears enter an art store.

Gears says AH, HERE IT IS!
THE ART STORE!

Wiz says WHAT DO YOU NEED ART
SUPPLIES FOR GEARS?

Gears says MY SELF-PORTRAIT?
HELLO...
HMMM. WONDER IF
I SHOULD GO OIL,
OR ACRYLIC,
OR WATER COLOUR.
WHAT WOULD VAN GOGH DO?
THINK GEARS,
THINK...

Wiz says WELL, LET'S GO SEE HOW THESE
GREAT WATER COLOURS ARE MADE!

Gears says AWESOME! I COULD REALLY USE
SOME INSPIRATION...

At the water color factory, Wiz says WE START BY MEASURING
OUR INGREDIENTS.

Factory workers weigh and fill up large paper bags with base powder.

Gears says ON THAT BIG SCALE?
HA!
ARE WE MAKING WATER
COLOURS OR BAKING A CAKE?
THEY'RE STARTING WITH
SOME WHITE POWDER -
I GUESS THAT'S THE BASE.
OK - A LITTLE
MORE...MORE...
PERFECT!
MAN! THESE GUYS ARE PRECISE
WITH THEIR MEASUREMENTS!

Wiz says THIS IS QUALITY PAINT -
THEY NEED TO BE PRECISE
WHEN COMBINING COLOURS.

Gears says WEIGHT CHECK!
I THINK WE NEED TO TAKE
AWAY JUST A SMIDGE.
GOOD THING I'M HERE.

A worker opens one of the bags and the powder is now bright yellow.

Wiz and Gears say WHOA!

Gears says THAT YELLOW IS INTENSE!
IT'S LIKE A SHOVELFUL
OF SUNSHINE...
HE'S ADDING IT TO THE MIX!
I HAVE A FEELING HE IS
COMBINING TO MAKE
SOME CRAZY COLOUR...
YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO
MUCH SUNSHINE...
JUST A BIT MORE..YEAH
BLUE!
MAN, DIDN'T SEE
THAT COMING...

Wiz says YELLOW AND BLUE MAKE...

A machine mixes the green paint.

They say GREEN!

Gears says WHAT A BEAUTIFUL
SHADE...SUCH POSSIBILITIES.

Wiz says GREEN APPLES...
TREES...FLOWERS...

Gears says HEY WHEN CAN WE
START PAINTING?

Wiz says WELL, THE COLOUR MIXES LIKE
THAT FOR A DAY AND HALF...

Gears says YIKES! WE DON'T
HAVE THAT MUCH TIME!
LET'S GO SEE IF WE CAN FIND
ONE THAT'S ALREADY MIXED!
WIZ!
I FOUND SOME RED
THAT'S ALL READY!
AND LOOK, AFTER IT'S DONE
MIXING IT BECOMES POWDER!
IS THAT A GARBAGE CAN?
THEY'RE NOT TOSSING
IT, ARE THEY?

Wiz says PROBABLY JUST EASIER TO
MOVE IT IN A BIG CAN!

Gears says I CAN SEE WHY THEY
USE A FORKLIFT!
HATE TO HAVE TO LIFT
THAT UP SOME STAIRS!
EASY...EASY.

A worker pours the red powder in a large mixer.

Gears says LET'S NOT SPILL ANY!
COOL, THIS MACHINE S
GRINDING UP THE POWDE.
AND LOOK! THERE ARE STRIPS
OF PAINT MIXED IN TOO!

Wiz says THOSE STRIPS ARE RECYCLED
BITS FROM OTHER BATCHES.

The mix comes out of the machine as a solid strip.

They say WOW!
COOOOOL!

Gears says HEY WIZ!
CHECK IT OUT,
IT LOOKS LIKE
A BIG RED TONGUE!
BLEEHHH!

Wiz says IT'S NICE AND SOFT SO IT
WILL BE EASY TO CUT OUT!

Gears says HEY!

Now the strip is cut into small rectangles.

Gears says A COOKIE CUTTER JUST MADE A
BUNCH OF LITTLE PAINT PATTIES!
AND HERE ARE THE
LEFTOVER RIBBONS -
JUST LIKE THE ONES
WE SAW BEING RECYCLED!
AH,
THOSE ARE PERFECT!
THAT RED REALLY STIRS
MY ARTISTIC PASSION!
CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED.

Wiz says THE CAKES NEED TO
DRY FIRST, PICASSO.
BUT WHEN THEY'RE DONE,
WE CAN PAINT
PICTURES OF FIRE ENGINES!
AND CANDY APPLES!
OH,
THE POSSIBILITIES!
DON'T EVEN GET ME
STARTED ON YELLOW...

The worker takes the yellow batch out of the oven and slides them on a conveyor.

Wiz says SWOOSH!
A SMOOTH SLIDE MEANS
THESE ONES ARE DRY!
AND THE GREAT THING
ABOUT THIS PAINT
IS THAT YOU CAN
PAINT ON PAPER,
CARDBOARD -
EVEN LEATHER!

Gears says WHOA!
CHECK OUT THAT GATE!
IT'S ONLY LETTING A
FEW THROUGH AT A TIME.
NOW TAKE IT SLOW EVERYBODY,
AND LET'S PROCEED IN AN
ORDERLY MANNER PLEASE.

Wiz says YOU WOULD HAVE MADE
A GREAT TRAFFIC COP.

Gears says YEAH, BUT WHEN ART COMES
CALLING, YOU ANSWER.
COOL!
PHOTO EYE!
IT'S CONTROLLING THE GATE
THAT MOVES THEM ALONG!

Wiz says THAT WILL MAKE SURE
THEY ARE EVENLY SPACED.

Gears says TIME TO FILL UP
THE CONTAINERS!
A LITTLE SHOT OF GLUE WILL
HOLD THE COLOUR IN PLACE.
AWWW, THOSE LITTLE YELLOW
CAKES LOOK AS SNUG AS A BUG!

Now two boys use water color paints to make portraits of Wiz and Gears.

Wiz says WHAT HAPPENED TO
THE SELF PORTRAIT?

Gears says I DECIDED TO OUTSOURCE
TO THESE GUYS.
WHAAA?
HEY!
HOW DID YOU MAKE YOUR WAY
INTO MY SELF-PORTRAIT?

Wiz laughs.
