Transcript: Spinning and Grinning
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.
A person reads the episode title.
They read, SPINNING AND GRINNING.
Text reads, written by Ray Boseley. A person gasps.
They say, CHECK IT OUT!
Cris sits on the floor in front of a TV.
He says, PERRY SMILES IS ABOUT TO WIN
ANOTHER BIG TROPHY!
Orange cat Crat sleeps on a chair. He wakes suddenly.
He says, PERRY SMILES?!
THE ROLLER-DISCO GUY?
Crat stumbles out of the chair to the floor beside Cris.
Crat grunts, OOH! AAH!
He says, ...COOL!
Perry Smiles dances on roller skates while disco music plays.
Crat says, WHAT A TOTAL STAR!
Perry poses on the dance floor with his finger pointed upward.
Cris says, I WISH I COULD
ROLLER-BOOGIE LIKE PERRY!
Cris dances like Perry. Cris gasps and looks back at the TV.
He says, HERE COMES HIS SPECIAL MOVE -
'THE SUPER-GRIN SPIN'!
Perry leaps and spins in the air before landing and posing.
An announcer says, AND THE WINNER IS...
He says, YAY PERRY!
WHAT A CHAMP!
Two candy-like creatures, Sprinkle Fairy’s helpers, Sprinklers, pop up from behind the TV.
Cris says, HE'S JUST SO... SO...
The Sprinklers duck down behind the TV.
Cris says, …TRIUMPHANT!
(Celebratory music plays)
Sprinklers pop up and cheer, TRIUMPHANT!
A decorative double decker bus honks as it drives by. Sprinkle Fairy appears with her star wand.
She says, TRIUMPHANT MEANS
FEELING STRONG AND HAPPY
ABOUT WINNING SOMETHING.
YOU KNOW, LIKE PERRY SMILES WHEN
HE WON THE ROLLER-DISCO CONTEST!
Sprinkle Fairy flies over to Cris.
Cris says, GOT ANY ROLLER-BOOGIE TIPS?
I WANT TO BE
A SKATING SUPERSTAR TOO!
Sprinkle Fairy says, I'D LOVE TO HELP BUT
THE LAST TIME I WENT DANCING,
A CHARMING PRINCE
TOOK MY GLASS SLIPPER!
Sprinkle Fairy flies away. Cris and Crat shrug.
They say, HUH.
They turn back to the TV.
Perry Smiles is handed a large trophy.
Cris says, LOOK AT PERRY!
LISTEN TO THE CROWD!
I WANNA BE AS TRIUMPHANT AS HIM!
I JUST HAVE TO LEARN
THE 'SUPER-GRIN SPIN'
AND WIN A CONTEST - NO SWEAT!
Crat says, HMM... THAT COULD TAKE
A LITTLE SWEAT.
Cris says, DOESN'T MATTER! I'M NOT GOING TO
LET ANYTHING GET IN MY WAY!
Cris puts his hands on his hips. He looks confident
Crat says, WELL, GOOD FOR YOU!
GRAB YOUR SKATES
AND I'LL HELP YOU PRACTICE!
He says, OH. I DON'T HAVE ANY.
Elsewhere he says, CRIS!
He dodges an alarm clock.
He asks, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Cris says, MOM SAID HER ROLLER-SKATES
WERE IN THE CLOSET.
Cris digs through a closet.
He says, AND I WON'T BE TRIUMPHANT
UNTIL I FIND THEM!
Cris pulls roller skates out of the closet.
He cheers, YES!
Two Sprinkler’s wearing helmets pop up from behind two spools of thread. The orange Sprinkler balances on one of the spools as it rolls on its side. The pink Sprinkler attempts the same but falls. Cris’s mom gives a thumbs up from a window.
She says, GO CRIS!
Cris says, THANKS MOM!
Cris wears the roller skates and protective gear on a sidewalk outside his house with Crat close by.
Cris says, WHOA!
Cris slides on the skates. Crat helps him.
Crat says, OKAY, START SMALL.
JUST SKATE TO THE
END OF THE DRIVEWAY AND BACK.
Cris looks determined.
He says, GOT IT!
He rolls forward on his skates.
He says, WHOA... WHOA...
Cris picks up speed. He skates onto grass and yells as he loses his footing. He falls backward into a bush. Crat runs up to the bush as Cris pops his head out.
He says, GOOD TRY!
A BIT SWERVEY
AT THE END, BUT STILL, NICE!
Crat helps Cris out of the bush.
Cris says, IT LOOKS WAY EASIER ON TV.
I'M NOT GIVING UP THOUGH!
Crat claps as Cris roller skates past him. Cris stumbles.
He says, WOAH!
Crat cringes. He shakes pom poms.
He cheers, GO, CRIS! GO, CRIS!
Cris roller skates past. He stumbles and flips over. He grunts.
Crat cringes. Mom helps Cris with the roller skates.
She says, NOW REMEMBER, CRIS,
IT'S ALL ABOUT BALANCE.
Mom demonstrates a balancing pose. Crat blows a horn. Cris skates past but starts to lose his balance.
He says, WHOA...
Cris catches his balance and remains on his skates. Cris catches his breath and smiles before falling again.
He says, PHEW!
Cris wipes sweat off his forehead.
He says, WHO KNEW BEING A WORLD CHAMPION
WOULD BE SO MUCH WORK
Crat says, KEEP AT IT, CRIS!
YOU'RE GETTING BETTER EACH TIME!
Crat helps Cris stand.
Cris says, HMM...
He tries skating again. He starts to turn and begins to lose his balance.
He says, WHOA!
Cris gains his balance.
He says, I'M OKAY!
Cris gives his Mom a thumbs up.
Mom calls, YOU'RE DOING GREAT!
The orange and pink Sprinkler practice their balance on the thread spools. The pink Sprinkler rolls onto a garden shovel and flies into the air. Cris rolls to a stop beside Crat.
He says, YES! DOWN AND BACK
WITH NO CRASHES!
Cris and Crat high-five.
Crat says, CONGRATS!
YOU JUST TAUGHT YOURSELF
WHAT A TRIUMPH!
Cris says, I GUESS.
BUT THAT WAS JUST THE EASY PART.
I WON'T BE TOTALLY TRIUMPHANT
UNTIL I CAN DO
A SUPER-GRIN SPIN.
Crat waves a foam finger as Cris roller skates.
He cheers, COME ON, CRIS!
YOU CAN DO IT!
Cris attempts a jump. He does a cartwheel.
He yells, WHOA!
Crat rushes to Cris, sitting in the grass with his feet behind his ears. Crat waves a flag as Cris tries again. Cris grunts as he jumps and attempts a spin. He skates backwards.
He says, WHOA!
Cris loses a roller skate.
Cris says, I'M GOOD.
He gives his mom a thumbs up.
He says, I'LL NEVER BE ABLE
TO DO A SUPER-GRIN SPIN.
Crat rolls up to Cris on Cris’s lost roller skate.
Cris says, AND I'LL NEVER BE TRIUMPHANT
LIKE PERRY SMILES!
Crat says, DON'T GIVE UP! SOME THINGS
ARE JUST REALLY HARD.
YOU'LL GET IT SOON.
Cris says, NO.
He looks sad as he accepts his roller skate from Crat.
Crat says, I DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.
Crat looks thoughtful.
Crat says, YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU DON'T HAVE WHAT IT TAKES.
Cris says, GEE, THANKS.
Crat says, KNOW WHY?
'COS THE SUPER-GRIN SPIN IS
AN AMAZING ROLLER-BOOGIE MOVE
BUT YOU FORGOT
THE 'BOOGIE' PART!
He says, YOU'RE RIGHT!
I NEED MUSIC!
THAT'S A HUGE PART OF IT!
The Sprinkler’s rolling on the spools roll into each other with a grunt. The pink Sprinkler ends up on the orange Sprinkler’s shoulders. They continue rolling on the orange Sprinkler’s thread spool. Crat plays funky music on a stereo. He and Cris dance to the beat. Cris does a spin on his roller skates with a perfect landing.
He cheers, YES! I AM TRIUMPHANT!
Cris stumbles backwards.
He says, WHOA!
Cris falls into the bush. Crat runs over as Cris pops his head out of the bush.
Crat says, BUT YOU WON'T BE
TILL YOU WATCH
WHERE YOU'RE GOING!
Cris and Crat laughs.
(Happy music plays)
