An animation shows traffic travelling through a city. People are gathered outside houses and a pizza parlour. A pink school bus scatters stars as it passes by a grassy hill.
Text reads, “TVO kids and ABC presents”.
Children and their pets run to the hill and climb onto the title which they read, BIG WORDS, SMALL STORIES.
Poppy reads the episode title, Starstruck.
It is nighttime and stars twinkle in the sky. Poppy and her dog Chaz sit in the back garden of their house. A telescope is set up between them.
Poppy says, THIS IS BORING.
WE'VE BEEN OUT HERE FOREVER!
IT'S ONLY BEEN 10 MINUTES.
10 WHOLE MINUTES!?
I COULD HAVE FINISHED WRITING
MY SONG ABOUT ARTICHOKES!
OR LEARNT HOW TO SPEAK SQUIRREL!
Chaz says, IT WON'T BE LONG NOW. I PROMISE.
I HOPE NOT.
IT'S HARD TO SIT STILL.
Poppy says, MAYBE I CAN DO
Poppy jumps off her garden chair and performs a handstand, before spinning on her head. Poppy spins out of control and knocks into the telescope.
Chaz says, WHOOOAAAHHH!
Poppy says, OOPS. GUESS I NEED TO
PRACTICE MY HIGH KICK.
Chaz replies, NO TIME FOR THAT NOW.
IT'S STARTING! QUICK!
LOOK THROUGH THE TELESCOPE!
Poppy says, ALRIGHT, BUT I REALLY DON'T
GET WHAT CAN BE SO—
Poppy looks at the night sky through the telescope.
Poppy says, IT'S LIKE THE SKY
IS HAVING A PARTY,
AND EVERYTHING SPARKLY
Chaz says, IT'S BEAUTIFUL!
Sprinkle Fairy arrives and explains, SPECTACULAR MEANS SOMETHING
SUPER-DUPER EXCITING TO LOOK AT.
SOMETHING THAT MAKES
YOU GO 'WOW'!
YOU KNOW, LIKE THE METEOR SHOWER
POPPY AND CHAZ ARE WATCHING.
Sprinkle Fairy sits in Poppy’s chair.
Poppy says, HEY! WHO TURNED OUT THE LIGHTS?
Sprinkle Fairy says, THE METEOR SHOWER JUST SHOT BY.
OOP! AND I MUST TOO!
I'M LATE FOR DINNER WITH SOME
VERY NICE CHIPMUNKS. TOODLES!
Poppy looks through the telescope again. Sprinkle Fairy flies away.
Chaz says, IMAGINE IF WE HAD A SPECTACULAR
SPECTACLE LIKE THAT EVERY NIGHT.
Poppy says, MAYBE WE CAN!
Poppy opens a large box in her living room and searches through it. Chaz plays with a green alien stuffy.
Poppy says, PAPER, PAINT, POM POMS... WHOA!
Poppy falls into the box and Chaz pulls her out.
Poppy shouts, WHOA!
Sprinkle Fairy’s helper, a sprinkler, a small candy-like creature, walks along the edge of the bow, then falls into it.
Chaz says, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO MAKE?
A HANGING MOBILE!
WITH SHOOTING STARS AND SPINNING
PLANETS AND SHOWERING METEORS!
IT'S GOING TO BE AS SPECTACULAR
AS THE SKY WAS TONIGHT! SEE?
A purple pom-pom hangs from a coat hanger.
Chaz asks, WHAT'S THAT SUPPOSED TO BE?
Poppy replies, THE MOON!
Chaz says, HMM... MAYBE WE SHOULD MAKE
A PLAN FIRST SO WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE DOING.
Poppy runs, carrying craft supplies.
Poppy says, DON'T NEED TO. I'VE ALREADY GOT
A HUNDRED PLANS IN MY HEAD!
I'LL MAKE ONE ANYWAY.
JUST IN CASE.
Chaz holds up a piece of blank white paper and a pencil.
Chaz says, PERFECT.
Chaz says, THIS ISN'T RIGHT.
WHY ARE THE STARS SO WONKY?
AND WHY DOES THAT PLANET
HAVE A SMILEY FACE?
Poppy says, 'COS IT'S HAPPY AND LOOKS CUTE!
ISN'T SUPPOSED TO BE CUTE.
IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE AMAZING
LIKE THE REAL NIGHT SKY.
IF WE MAKE IT LIKE MY PLAN, I
PROMISE IT WILL BE SPECTACULAR!
Poppy says, WOW! THIS IS GREAT!
Poppy looks at a colourful picture of the solar system.
Poppy asks, BUT WHERE ARE
ALL THE LOVE HEARTS?
Chaz replies, THERE AREN'T ANY LOVE HEARTS
Poppy asks, WHAT ABOUT ANIMALS?
She continues, I BET I COULD DRAW
A REALLY COOL SPACE DOG!
Chaz says, THERE AREN'T
ANY SPACE DOGS EITHER.
Poppy asks, ARE YOU SURE THIS
IS GOING TO BE SPECTACULAR?
Chaz replies, OF COURSE! I'VE BEEN STUDYING
THE NIGHT SKY ALL MY LIFE.
Poppy says, GUESS THAT MAKES YOU THE BOSS.
I'LL FOLLOW YOUR PLAN
AS BEST AS I CAN!
Chaz draws a picture of the moon then measures it. Poppy applies glue to paper. Chaz sits at a table and holds up a pair of large scissors. Poppy rips a piece of turquoise coloured paper. Chaz sticks planets, stars and shooting stars to a sheet of white paper. Poppy smiles as she creates a star with a smiling face. Poppy notices a smiley face planet bounce off her mobile. A blue sprinkler bounces onto the planet then springs off it and into the air. Chaz finishes drawing a picture of the earth. He drops it and has a shocked expression.
Poppy holds a cup of paper hearts and says, NOW FOR SOME LOVE HEARTS!
Chaz leaps at her and knocks the cup out of her hand. NOOO!
Chaz says, POPPY! I... I...
Poppy says, YOU HATE IT, DON'T YOU?
I TRIED TO FOLLOW THE PLAN
BUT I JUST GOT SO EXCITED!
Chaz says, DON'T SAY SORRY. I LOVE IT!
IT'S LIKE THE NIGHT SKY...
IN A WHOLE NEW GALAXY!
[Chuckles] A SPECTACULAR MESS!
Poppy glances down at the red love hearts covering the floor.
