(music plays)

Entering an animated train a robot is making stuff as a TV. 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!

A bunch of kids flies kites in a park.

Gears says WIZ,
WHERE ARE YOU?

Wiz flies through the sky next to a kite.

He says LOOK AT ME GEARS!
I'M A KITE!

Gears says NOT REALLY WIZ, 'CAUSE
KITES AREN'T USUALLY
MADE OF STEEL OR SHAPED
LIKE A BOWLING BALL.

He says to a boy
THAT'S MY FRIEND.
HE'S A LITTLE OUT THERE...
WIZ!
IF YOU COME DOWN WE'LL
MAKE OUR OWN KITE!

Wiz says COMING GEARS!
WEEEEE!

Now Gears and Wiz are in a workshop.

A woman in her mid-fifties stands in front of a table with different patterns on top of it.

Gears says FIRST STEP IS TO
PICK A KITE PATTERN.
OHH!
I LIKE THAT ONE!

He points to a colourful one.

The woman spreads out a big piece of fabric on a long table.

Gears says THEY'RE USING NYLON!
NICE AND STRETCHY.
HEY!
THEY'RE PINNING THE NYLON!

Wiz says THE FABRIC HAS TO BE
STRETCHED VERY TIGHT
AND SMOOTH FOR OUR KITE.

The woman puts on an apron.

A man picks a gig frame with a design.

Gears says HEY!
THERE'S OUR DESIGN -
ONLY IT'S FRAMED,
AND IT'S SEE-THROUGH!

Wiz says C'MON, LET'S SEE
WHAT THEY DO WITH IT!

Gears says SO THE PRINT GOES ONTO
THE NYLON PIECE...

The woman pours some ink onto the framed design.

Gears says LOOK AT THE
THICK GOOEY INK!
THAT'LL LEAVE A STAIN...
COOL! HE'S USING THE
SQUEEGEE-THING TO SPREAD
THE INK ACROSS THE FRAME!

Wiz says IT HAS TO SPREAD
NICE AND EVENLY.

The man spreads the paint again.

Gears says HMMM...YEP, THREE
PASSES OUGHT TO DO IT.
IT'S LIKE A STENCIL!

Wiz says IT'S CALLED
SILK SCREENING.

They lift the frame and the design appears on the fabric.

Gears and Wiz say WHOA!

They put the frame onto the fabric again.

Gears says AWESOME!
WITH JUST ONE STENCIL,
WE CAN COVER THE
WHOLE SHEET OF NYLON!
NOW WE CUT OUT
THE FIRST DESIGN.

Wiz says OUT COME THE PINS.
OUR FIRST SHEET IS READY!

The woman picks the sheet and take it to another table. She lays out the sheet on the table.

Wiz says NOW FOR A BIT OF COLOUR!

The woman paints the fabric.

Gears says WOW, YOU MEAN THESE KITES
ARE PAINTED BY HAND?
WHAT COULD BE MORE AWESOME
THAN PAINTING
KITES ALL DAY?

Wiz says THAT WOULD BE A
VERY COOL JOB...

Gears says WHERE CAN I APPLY?
THOSE BIG SOFT PAINT
BRUSHES LOOK DIFFERENT
FROM THE ONES I USE!

Wiz says THEY ARE CHINESE
CALLIGRAPHY BRUSHES.

Gears says AH, I SEE
THE COLOUR GOES ON
MORE QUICKLY USING THOSE.
HEY, ANY EXTRA
PAINTBRUSHES LYING AROUND?
CAUSE I CAN MAYBE
LEND A HAND...
I HAVE SOME MAD SKILLS WHEN
IT COMES TO PAINTING...

Wiz says UHHM...I'VE SEEN
YOUR WORK...

Gears says AND?

Wiz says MAYBE LET THEM
PAINT THIS ONE.

Gears says YEAH,
YOU'RE RIGHT.
AFTER ALL,
IT IS THEIR KITE.

Wiz says PLUS I THINK THIS LADY
REALLY KNOWS WHAT SHE'S DOING.

(music plays)

The woman finishes the painting.

Gears says HEY IT'S DONE!
AWWW MAN, SHE'S ROLLING UP
MY BEAUTIFUL PAINTING...

Wiz says KITE,
GEARS...

Gears says OH,
RIGHT.
AND...DOWN THE
RABBIT HOLE?
WHAT GIVES?

The woman puts the fabric on a vertical tube. She puts a lid on it.

Wiz says IT'S A STEAM CHAMBER
TO SET THE DYE!

Gears says I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT
IT LOOKS LIKE WHEN IT'S DONE!

Time passes. The woman takes out the fabric from the chamber.

Gears says IT'S READY!

The woman opens out the fabric onto a table.

Gears says WHOA! THOSE COLOURS
ARE CRAZY SHARP!

The woman picks up the fabric.

Gears says HEY!
I WAS ADMIRING THAT!
OH NO! IT'S GETTING STUFFED
IN SOAPY WATER!
IT'LL BE RUINED!

A man moves the fabric in the water with a plunger.

Gears says HEY, IS HE
USING MY LEG?
OH NO, I'VE STILL
GOT IT, I'M OKAY.

Wiz says NOT TO WORRY GEARS,
HE'S JUST WASHING
OFF SOME EXCESS DYE.

Gears says AND HE'S NOT USING
MY LEG, WHICH IS
WHICH IS GOOD.

Wiz says AND A LITTLE RINSE!

Gears says PHEW!
IT STILL LOOKS GREAT!

(music plays)

The man opens out the fabric on a table. He puts a long ruler on top of it and cuts the fabric.

Gears says THAT RULER'S GREAT
FOR A NICE CLEAN CUT.
WEIRD!
HIS KNIFE IS PLUGGED IN.

Wiz says IT'S A HEATED KNIFE!

Gears says COOL IDEA!
THAT'LL SEAL THE
FABRIC AS IT CUTS!

(music plays)

The man puts the cut pieces on a table.

Gears says OHH! LIKE A BIG
JIGSAW PUZZLE...

Wiz says NO, OVER THERE.
MOVE THAT PIECE THERE.

Gears says NO, NO MOVE IT
OVER TO THE SIDE...
NOW LINE THEM UP
NICE AND STRAIGHT...
AH,
MORE HEAT!

Wiz says THOSE HOT PINS WILL MELT
THE LAYERS TOGETHER
SO THEY STICK!

(music plays)

Wiz says NOW WE SEW THE
PIECES TOGETHER...

Gears says HE'S ALSO ATTACHING THE
LOOPS AND POCKETS
TO HOLD THE
RODS AND LINES.
WHICHEVER WAY
THE WIND BLOWS,
THIS KITE WILL BE A BEAUTY...

Now the man holds some black poles.

Gears says HERE WE ARE! THE POLES
ARE READY TO HELP
OUR KITE CATCH
SOME MAJOR WIND!

The man finishes the kite.

Gears says AND SHAZAAM!
A FLOATING PIECE OF ART!

The run back to the park.

Gears says C'MON WIZ! I DON'T WANT TO MISS
OUR KITE'S TEST FLIGHT!

Two kids fly the kite.

Gears says Man, THESE KIDS HAVE
THE WORLD ON A STRING...
THESE KITES ARE LIKE
FLYING WORKS OF ART.
THEY'RE LIKE PAINTINGS
UP IN THE SKY!

Two girls fly a kite.

Wiz says HIGHER, GIRLS,
HIGHER, GO HIGHER!

Another kite flies in the sky. It has colourful drawings.

Gears says WHOA,
LOOK AT THAT ONE!
WHAT AMAZING DETAIL...
WIZ,
ARE YOU SEEING THIS?
WHERE THE HECK ARE YOU?

Wiz flies next to the kites.

He says HEY GEARS!
HOW DO I LOOK?

Gears says You LOOK GREAT,
WIZ, JUST GREAT...
