(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 close up shows a bunch of flowers surrounded by bees.

Gears says THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!
I'VE NEVER SEEN
A BEE THIS CLOSE.
WHAT'S HE DOING WIZ?

Wiz says SHE...

Gears says OOPS!
SORRY MA'AM.

Wiz says SHE'S SUCKING NECTAR
FROM THE FLOWERS.

Gears says WHAT'S NECTAR?

Wiz flies towards a group of bee hives.

He says BUZZZZ!
BUZZZ!

Gears says Whoa! WIZ!
SLOW DOWN!
WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
THAT'S A BEE HIVE, WIZ!
YOU ARE NOT A BEE.
CLOSE ENOUGH!
CLOSE ENOUGH!

A close up shows the bees in the hive.

Wiz says BEES BRING THE NECTAR
BACK HERE TO THE HIVE.

Gears says HA! THIS LOOKS LIKE AN
APARTMENT BUILDING FOR BEES!

A man takes the hive apart.

Gears says UHM... AREN'T THEY GOING TO
GET MAD THAT WE'RE
TAKING THEIR HOUSE APART?

He throws smoke on the hive.

Wiz says THE SMOKE CALMS THEM DOWN.

Gears says THAT'S A RELIEF.
THAT AND THE FACT THAT
WE'RE BOTH ROBOTS
WITH METAL BODIES...
I FEEL CONFIDENT
WE WON'T GET STUNG.
COOL!
THIS IS WHERE THEY LIVE!

The man picks up a rectangular frame with small hexagonal wax cells.

Wiz says AND WORK! IT'S CALLED
THE HONEY COMB!
THIS IS WHERE
THEY MAKE HONEY!

Gears says HOW DO THEY
MAKE HONEY, WIZ?

Wiz projects and animation showing a bee sucking nectar from a flower.

He says THE WORKER BEE SUCKS
NECTAR FROM THE FLOWER.

Gears says YEAH,
WE SAW THAT.
NECTAR IS LIKE
SUGAR RIGHT?

Wiz says YES,
IT'S A SWEET LIQUID.
SHE TAKES IT
BACK TO THE HIVE.

Gears says SHE'S SPITTING IT OUT
INTO THE HONEYCOMB!
EW!

Wiz says SHE LEAVES IT TO RIPEN.

Gears says THEN YOU HAVE HONEY!
NICE!
THE WORKER BEE
SURE WORKS HARD!
YOU GO SISTER!

A close up shows the honeycomb in detail. A bee with a longer abdomen appears.

Wiz says AND THIS IS THE...

Gears says YOU DON'T HAVE
TO INTRODUCE ME!
I KNOW THAT IS
THE QUEEN BEE!
GREETINGS YOUR MAJESTY.

Wiz says THE QUEEN DOESN'T
MAKE HONEY.
SHE MAKES MORE BEES!
SHE LAYS 1500 EGGS A DAY!

Gears says AND THE GUYS?
WHAT DO THE GUYS DO?

Wiz says THEY'RE CALLED DRONES!
THEY'RE THE ONES
WHO FOUND THE QUEEN!

Gears says SO WHEN IT COMES
TO MAKING HONEY,
THE BEES DO ALL THE WORK.
ALL WE NEED TO
DO IS COLLECT IT.

Wiz says SO LET'S GET TO IT!
BUZZ!

Gears says BUZZZZZZ!

A young man carries the hives to a room.

Gears says SO HE BRINGS THE
BOXES INSIDE?
HE'S GOING TO GET A BIG
SURPRISE WHEN HE OPENS THEM!

Wiz says NO GEARS!
ALL THE BEES HAVE BEEN
MOVED TO A NEW HIVE!

Gears says OH,
THAT'S A RELIEF.

The man removes a light brown substance from the box.

Gears says LOOKS LIKE THE BEES
MAKE MORE THAN HONEY!

Wiz says THIS IS BEES WAX!
THAT'S WHAT THE BEES USE
TO BUILD THE HONEYCOMBS.

Gears says WHOA!
WHOA!
YOU MEAN, THE BEES MAKE
LITTLE POCKETS OF WAX...
AND THEN FILL THEM
WITH HONEY AFTER?
BEES ARE JUST...
WOW.
WOW!

The man puts the honeycombs in a machine.

Gears says SO THE TRICK NOW IS TO
GET THE HONEY
OUT OF THE HONEYCOMB,
CORRECT?

(fanfare)

Gears says I LOVE WHEN YOU DO THAT.
MAKES ME FEEL,
SPECIAL.
NOW LET ME GET
A CLOSE LOOK...
COOOL!
THE MACHINE SCRAPES THEM!
LOOK AT THAT MIX OF
WAX AND HONEY WIZ!
WOULDN'T WANT TO FALL
IN A TUB OF THAT STUFF!
AGAIN...

Wiz says YUCK I REMEMBER THAT DAY.

Gears says BUT WIZ, NO ONE WANTS
WAX IN THEIR HONEY!
HOW DO THEY SEPARATE IT?

Wiz says THEY LET IT DRIP
THROUGH THESE FILTERS.

The honey goes through a filter.

Gears says OH,
THE WAX STAYS ON TOP,
THE HONEY GOES TO THE BOTTOM.
SWEEEET!

Wiz says BUT THAT'S NOT THE
MAIN EVENT, GEARS!
MOST OF THE HONEY IS
STILL ON THE HONEY COMB.

Gears says WHAAAAAAAAAAAA?

The honeycombs move along a machine.

Wiz says WE'RE GONNA LOAD THESE
HONEY COMBS INTO THE SPINNER.

Gears says TO SPIN THEM?

(fanfare)

Gears says HIHIHI!

(music plays)

Wiz says IT SPINS THE
HONEYCOMBS SUPER FAST.
SO ALL THE
HONEY FLIES OUT!

A man closes the spinner.

Gears says GOOD IDEA CLOSING THE BOX.
OR ELSE HONEY WOULD
BE FLYING EVERYWHERE!
AND THE EMPTY HONEYCOMBS
GO RIGHT BACK INTO
THE BOXES SO THE BEES CAN
FILL THEM UP AGAIN!

Wiz says THEN ALL THE
HONEY COMES HERE!

He shows a big tank.

Gears says THERE'S A TON OF IT!
I CAN'T WAIT
TO SEE IT POUR!

A man pours some honey into a bucket.

Gears says WHOA!
NICE!
BEES MADE ALL THAT!
THAT IS JUST INCREDIBLE.
WOW, I ALMOST FEEL
LIKE JUMPING IN.

Wiz says NO GEARS!
NOT AGAIN!

Gears says KIDDING,
KIDDING!
TIME TO FILL UP
THE JARS, WIZ!

Wiz says I LOVE THIS PART!

A machine fills the jars with honey. A woman puts a lid on the jars.

Gears says MMMM.
GOLDEN BROWN HONEY.
WIZ, DID YOU KNOW BEES ARE
THE ONLY INSECTS
THAT MAKE FOOD
THAT PEOPLE CAN EAT?

Wiz says SWEET FOOD.

Gears says YUH HUH!
THAT'S WHY YOU NEED TO ALWAYS
TREAT BEES WITH RESPECT!
PLUS THEY CAN STING YOU.
THE JARS ARE CAPPED AND
READY TO BE LABELLED!
SMACK THAT LABEL ON!

A woman sticks a label on the jar and then put the jar in a box.

Gears says NOW IT'S OFF TO THE STORE!

Gears and Wiz stand in the garden with bees flying around them.

Gears says YOU KNOW, WE NEVER
DID THANK THE QUEEN.
OH, THANK YOU
YOUR MAJESTY,
TODAY WAS EVER SO SPLENDID!

Wiz says SPLENDID INDEED!

Gears says HONESTLY, WE CAN'T
THANK-YOU ENOUGH.

Wiz says GOOD ON YOU!

Gears says YES, YES INDEED.
TIP TOP!
