´╗┐In animation, hands do different activities, like taking pictures, cooking, knitting.

Then the hand presses a battery connected to the title of the show and lights up. The title reads "How to do stuff good."

(music plays)

An animated detective pops up on the screen.

He is around 9, with short black hair. He wears a beige T-shirt and sunglasses.

In the studio, Gabe says HELLO.
MY NAME IS GABE.
YOU'RE WATCHING
TO DO STUFF
GOOD... HOW TO DO STUFF GOOD.
TODAY'S EPISODE IS ABOUT SECRETS
AND SPIES.
WAIT.
I SHOULDN'T HAVE TOLD YOU THAT.
AM I GOING TO GET IN TROUBLE?
AM I?
OH, WELL.
(coughing)
HERE'S WHAT THE OTHERS ARE UP
TO.

A caption reads "Coming up."

Miles says I'M GOING TO MAKE A
SUPER-SECRET MESSAGE THAT YOU
CAN EAT.

Molly says THIS CAKE CONTAINS A SECRET
TREASURE, AND I'M GOING TO SHOW
YOU HOW TO MAKE IT.

Federico says I SPY A HEAP OF DIFFERENT
WAYS TO USE THIS PLASTIC WATER
BOTTLE TO SURVIVE.

Elena says SPY LIKE A PRO WITH MY
30-SECOND HACK.

Abhishek says AND I'M MAKING A
SUPER-SECRET HIDING SPOT FOR
YOUR MOST VALUABLE POSSESSION.

Now Gabe dances in the studio.

Gabe says WANT A WAY TO SPY ON
PEOPLE BUT DON'T WANT TO GET
CAUGHT?
WELL, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THIS
DIY SPY PERISCOPE... MY DUDES.
FOR THIS HACK, YOU'LL NEED TWO
SMALL MIRRORS, TWO MILK CARTONS,
TAPE, AND SCISSORS.
GET AN ADULT TO CUT THE TOPS OFF
YOUR MILK CARTONS.
CUT AN EYEHOLE AT THE BOTTOM OF
ONE OF YOUR MILK CARTONS, LIKE
THIS.
WITH YOUR OTHER MILK CARTON, CUT
A RECTANGULAR HOLE, LIKE THIS.
GET ONE OF YOUR MIRRORS AND PUT
IT IN THE ONE WHERE YOU CUT THE
EYEHOLE, IN A 45-DEGREE ANGLE.
FUN FACT: 45 DEGREES IS HALFWAY
BETWEEN STRAIGHT UP AND FLAT
DOWN.
PUT ON SOME TAPE TO MAKE SURE
THIS MIRROR ISN'T GOING
ANYWHERE.
PERFECT.
THEN USE YOUR OTHER MILK CARTON
TO PLACE THE OTHER MIRROR IN A
45-DEGREE ANGLE... AGAIN.
AND THEN TAPE THIS MIRROR IN
SECURELY SO IT DOESN'T GO
ANYWHERE.
NOW, TAPE THE TWO CARTONS,
MAKING ONE LONG BOX.
MAKE SURE THE EYEHOLE AND THE
VIEWING HOLE ARE FACING OPPOSITE
DIRECTIONS.
THERE WE GO.
LET'S TEST THIS OUT.
WOW!
THIS IS GOOD.
OH, I CAN SEE MY NEIGHBOUR FROM
HERE.
HEY, DAVE!
BUT IT'S NOT A SPY TOOL IF IT
DOESN'T LOOK COOL.
I'LL BE BACK IN A SECOND.

He appears wearing a military hat and vest.

He says ALRIGHT, GUYS, NOTHING TO SEE
HERE!
OOH, MY NEIGHBOUR DAVE IS HAVING
SPAGHETTI DINNER.
I MIGHT POP OVER.

Now Miles dances in the studio. He is in his early teens, with short wavy brown hair and wears a plaid shirt over a white T-shirt.

In the studio lab, Miles says THIS EXPERIMENT IS A WIN-WIN.
FIRST OF ALL, IT'S A
SUPER-SECRET WAY OF
COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR FRIENDS.
AND SECONDLY, YOU CAN EAT THEM
AT THE END.

The caption changes to "Marshmallow messages."

He says FOR THIS HACK, YOU'LL NEED SOME
BIG MARSHMALLOWS, SOME WATER,
SOME BAKING SODA, SOME COTTON
TIPS, AND AN OVEN TRAY.
FIRSTLY, DISSOLVE THE BAKING
SODA WITH A LITTLE BIT OF WATER.
THEN USE A COTTON TIP TO GIVE IT
A BIT OF A STIR.
YOU WANT IT TO BE THE
CONSISTENCY OF RUNNY PAINT.
PUT THAT ASIDE, AND NOW, YOU
WANT TO POP ALL YOUR
MARSHMALLOWS INTO THE OVEN TRAY.
SHAZOW!

He lifts the tray to show the marshmallows and they fall.

He says OH, NO!
NEXT, GET YOUR COTTON TIP AND
USE YOUR BAKING SODA MIX TO
SPELL OUT LETTERS ON THE
MARSHMALLOWS.
I'M GOING TO GO ONE LETTER PER
MARSHMALLOW.
IT'S KIND OF TRICKY, BECAUSE YOU
CAN BARELY SEE WHAT YOU'RE
WRITING.
NOW THAT YOU'VE FINISHED YOUR
MARSHMALLOW MESSAGE, GIVE IT TO
A FRIEND.

Miles 2 says DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO
THANKS.

Miles says JUST PUT IT IN THE OVEN.

Miles 2 says OKAY.
(ticking)

Miles says AND WHEN THEY GET
OUT OF THE OVEN...

Miles 2 says HUH.
"MILES RULES."
THANKS.

Miles says I-- I WAS TALKING ABOUT ME
MILES, NOT YOU.
(sighing)
I SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT THIS
THROUGH.

Miles 2 says WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TOAST
THE MARSHMALLOWS IS CALLED THE
MAILLARD EFFECT.

Miles says THE BAKING SODA SPEEDS UP THE
COOKING PROCESS.
AND THE BITS WITH THE BAKING
SODA PAINTED ON TURN BROWN
FASTER.

Miles 2 says IT'S THE SAME REACTION THAT
HAPPENS WHEN YOU BARBECUE FOOD
OR PUT BREAD IN THE TOASTER.
SOME PEOPLE SAY IT'S THE
MAILLARD REACTION THAT MAKES
FOOD TASTE WAY MORE DELICIOUS
AND SMELL SO GOOD.

Miles says SO, THANKS, MAILLARD, FOR
MAKING FOOD TASTE DELICIOUS.

Miles 2 says AND THANK YOU, MARSHMALLOWS,
FOR BEING SO DELICIOUS.

Miles says AND THANK YOU, MILES.

Miles 2 says YOU'RE WELCOME.
WAIT.
I'M CONFUSED.

Miles says WAIT.

The caption changes to "Can you keep a secret?"

Elena says I THINK I'M ALRIGHT AT
KEEPING SECRETS.

Federico says IT'S SO HARD!

Yasmin says IF IT'S, LIKE, REALLY SECRET
AND THEY DON'T WANT ANYONE TO
KNOW, I WON'T TELL ANYONE.

Gabe whispers YES, I CAN KEEP
A SECRET.

Adelaidesays IF SOMEONE TELLS ME
SOMETHING INTERESTING, I'LL BE
LIKE, "OH, EVERYONE NEEDS TO
KNOW ABOUT THIS!"
SO THEN I'LL JUST GO TELL
EVERYONE.

Devonte says I'M NOT TOO MUCH OF A GOOD
SECRET KEEPER, BECAUSE I'M SUCH
A CHATTERBOX SOMETIMES.
I JUST WANT TO TELL EVERYTHING
TO EVERYONE.

Hari says THE BEST WAY TO KEEP A
SECRET IS PROBABLY GO ON A TRIP
FOR AS LONG AS YOU NEED TO 'TIL
THE SECRET IS REVEALED.
AND IF THAT INVOLVES MOVING TO
VENEZUELA, THEN SO BE IT.

Now Molly dances in the studio. She is in her early teens, with a short ponytail. She wears a yellow T-shirt under a colourful striped apron.

In the kitchen studio, Molly says CAKES ALWAYS IMPRESS.
BRING A CAKE TO SCHOOL, YOU'RE A
HERO.
BRING A CAKE TO SPORT, DANCE,
BAND, SLUMBER PARTY, EVERYONE
WILL LOVE IT.
TODAY, I'M NOT MAKING A REGULAR
CAKE.
THIS CAKE HAS A SECRET SURPRISE
THAT WILL BLOW YOUR FRIENDS'
MINDS.

The caption changes to "Surprise cake."

She Says FOR THIS HACK, YOU'RE GOING TO
NEED TWO SPONGE CAKES, ICING,
SPRINKLES, SOME LOLLIES, DENTAL
FLOSS THAT'S NOT FLAVOURED, AND
A CUP.
FIRST UP, GRAB ONE OF YOUR
SPONGES AND THE DENTAL FLOSS.
THEN WRAP IT AROUND THE CAKE AND
AROUND THE MIDDLE.
AND WHEN YOU GET TO THE END, ONE
HAND ON THE CAKE AND PULL IT
THROUGH.
VOILA!
YOU JUST SLICED A CAKE PERFECTLY
WITHOUT ANY KNIVES.
DO IT TO THE OTHER CAKE.
CHOOSE THE PRETTIEST OF THE TOPS
AND SET IT ASIDE.
NOW, USING YOUR CUP, CUT A HOLE
IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR CAKES,
LIKE THAT.

She tastes the center of the cake and says SAVE THIS FOR LATER.
SO, I'M GOING TO DO THIS TO ALL
MY OTHER CAKES NOW SO WE HAVE
THREE HOLE-Y CAKES.
I'M GOING TO USE THIS ONE AS MY
FIRST ONE, BECAUSE IT'S ROUND
AND IT WILL BE A GOOD WAY TO
FLATTEN IT DOWN.
AND THEN USING THE ICING, WE'RE
GOING TO PUT IT AROUND SOME OF
THE EDGES.
AND THIS IS GOING TO ACT LIKE A
GLUE.
I'M USING A LAZY SUSAN FOR THIS,
BECAUSE IT TOTALLY HELPS.
LIKE, HAVE A LOOK.
WHOO!
I'M GOING TO ADD IN MY NEXT
HOLE-Y LAYER.
AND NOW, I'M GOING TO ADD IN
MORE GLUE FOR THE NEXT-- WELL,
GLUE-ICING.
NEXT LAYER.
BEFORE YOU GO AHEAD AND ADD MORE
GLUE AND THEN THE FINAL TOP
LAYER, WE NEED TO FILL THIS
LITTLE COMPARTMENT WE'VE CREATED
WITH OUR SECRET SURPRISE.
YOU CAN FILL THIS WITH WHATEVER
YOU WANT.
I'M GOING TO USE SOME
JELLYBEANS, SOME FRECKLES, AND
SOME ORANGE CHOCOLATES.
PATTING DOWN ALL THE LOLLIES,
LIKE THAT, AND YOU'RE GOOD TO
GO.
WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO NOW IS
COMPLETELY SEAL OFF THE ENTIRE
COMPARTMENT SO NO ONE SEES THE
SECRET SURPRISE.
BUT WE'RE NOT DONE YET, BECAUSE
WE HAVE TO ACTUALLY DECORATE THE
CAKE.
PUT A HEAP OF LARGE DOLLOPS ONTO
THE TOP OF YOUR CAKE.
USING YOUR SPATULA, PRESS THE
ICING INTO THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE
CAKE.
NEXT UP, IT'S THE SPRINKLES
TIME!
I'M SO EXCITED!
I LOVE SPRINKLES.
TA-DA!
IF YOU WANT THIS TO LOOK EXTRA
SPECIAL, YOU'RE GOING TO WANT
TO CLEAN THE WHOLE CAKE BOARD
AROUND THIS.
DA, DA-DA-DA, DA-DA-DA
AND YOU'RE DONE!
ON THE OUTSIDE, IT LOOKS LIKE A
NORMAL, DELICIOUS-LOOKING CAKE,
BUT ON THE INSIDE...

She cuts a piece and the secret ingredients appear.

She says WOW!
OH, MY GOODNESS!
LOOK AT ALL OF THE LOLLIES!
IT JUST, LIKE, FELL OUT!
WHOO-HOO!
IT WORKED!
IT WORKED!
(laughing)
BYE, GUYS!

Elena is in her early teens, with long straight brown hair. She wears a denim overall and a striped T-shirt.

In the studio, Elena says says HERE'S THE EASIEST WAY TO
SPY LIKE THE PROS WITH MY
30-SECOND FINGERPRINTS KIT.
FIRST UP, TAKE A PENCIL AND A
NAIL FILER AND FILE THE PENCIL
INTO THE CONTAINER.
AND THEN USE A BRUSH TO LIGHTLY
BRUSH ALL THE PENCIL SHAVINGS
INTO THE CONTAINER.
NOW, FIND A HARD SURFACE WHERE
YOU THINK ANY FINGERPRINTS MIGHT
BE, LIKE THIS GLASS.
GET SOME PENCIL SHAVINGS AND
BRUSH ON THE PENCIL SHAVING,
LIKE SO.
(gasping)
IT'S STARTING TO SHOW!
NOW, TAKE SOME TAPE AND STICK IT
ONTO THE FINGERPRINT THAT YOU
JUST MADE.
PEEL IT OFF, AND YOU CAN ADD IT
TO YOUR RECORDS.
YOU CAN STORE THEM AND COMPARE
THEM AND FIGURE OUT WHO'S BEEN
DRINKING ALL YOUR MILK.
DAD!

Now Yasmin dances in the studio. She is in her early teens, with blond hair in a bun. She wears a mustard shirt.

Yasmin says WANT TO KNOW HOW TO PUT A
CANDLE OUT WITH SCIENCE?
ALL YOU NEED IS A TEA LIGHT
CANDLE LIT BY A FRIENDLY ADULT,
BAKING SODA, VINEGAR, AND A CUP.
MIX THE BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR
TOGETHER AND LET IT CALM DOWN.
CALM DOWN!
YOU'RE OVERREACTING!
NEXT, CAREFULLY GRAB YOUR LIT
CANDLE AND JUST POUR THE GAS
ONTO THE FLAME, NOT THE LIQUID.
(gasping)
IT WORKED!
THE FLAME WENT OUT!
THAT'S SO COOL!
OKAY, HERE'S THE SCIENCE.
WHEN YOU MIX THE BAKING SODA AND
THE VINEGAR, IT CREATES CARBON
DIOXIDE.

The content inside the glass bubbles up.

She continues AND WHEN YOU POUR THE CARBON
DIOXIDE OVER THE CANDLE,
THERE'S NO ROOM LEFT FOR OXYGEN,
SO THE FLAME GOES OUT.
THAT'S LIT.
WELL, NOT ANYMORE.

Now Abhishek dances in the studio. He is in his early teens, with brown hair. He wears a green T-shirt and white pants.

Abhishek says GOT SOMETHING YOU DON'T WANT
ANYONE TO FIND?
A TREASURE?
A DIARY?
THE CODES TO NUCLEAR WEAPONS?
YOU'RE GOING TO NEED SOMEWHERE
TO STORE IT.

The caption changes to "Secret Book Safe."

He says FOR THIS HACK, YOU'LL NEED AN
OLD BOOK, SOME GLUE DILUTED IN
WATER, A PENCIL, A RULER,
SCISSORS, GLUE, SOME PLASTIC
SHEETS, AND SOME FELT.
FIRST STEP: OPEN UP THE BOOK AND
TRACE THE SIZE OF THE OUTLINE
YOU WANT.
YOU WANT TO DO THIS A FEW PAGES
INTO THE BOOK.
PERFECT SIZE TO HIDE MY PHONE.
GET AN ADULT TO CUT OUT THE
SHAPE.
WARNING: THERE ARE GOING TO BE A
LOT OF PAGES TO CUT.
THE BEST WAY TO DO IT IS TO CUT
A FEW PAGES AT A TIME.
WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED, YOU'RE
GOING TO HAVE SOMETHING THAT
LOOKS A LITTLE LIKE THIS.
NEXT STEP: GRAB A GLUE STICK AND
START GLUING IN THESE PAGES.
ONCE YOU'VE GOT YOUR CAVITY,
GRAB YOUR GLUE AND PAINT IT ALL
AROUND THE INSIDE.
NOW, STICK IN YOUR FELT.
THIS MAKES IT LOOK WAY MORE
CLASSY.
WE'LL TRIM THE ENDS OFF WHEN
IT'S ALL DRY.
CHUCK A PIECE OF PLASTIC IN.
THEN SHUT THE BOOK AND LET IT
DRY FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS.
(ticking)
NOW, YOU CAN FILL IT WITH YOUR
PHONE, YOUR SUPER-SECRET SPY
GEAR, A KEY, WHATEVER YOU WANT.
PLACE IT IN A BOOKSHELF, AND
NOBODY WILL EVER KNOW.
SHH.

Federico is around 11, with brown hair. He wears a plaid shirt and a red headband.

Federico says BEING ABLE TO IMPROVISE WITH
EVERYDAY STUFF IS A GREAT SKILL
FOR ANY SPY.
SO HERE ARE A FEW THINGS YOU CAN
DO WITH A PLASTIC WATER BOTTLE.
ALL YOU NEED IS A PLASTIC WATER
BOTTLE AND SCISSORS.
PUNCH A HOLE IN THE LID.
GREAT FOR GIVING PETS WATER
WITHOUT WASTING TOO MUCH.

(barking)
He waters the tongue of a stuffed dog.

He says CUT OUT A BOWL.
CUT OUT A SPOON.
WATERPROOF CONTAINER FOR THINGS
LIKE PLASTERS.
(rattling)
CUT OUT A CUP.

He drinks juice and says AH.

He says EYE PROTECTION FROM SAND AND
DUST.
FINALLY, A WATER CARRIER,
OBVIOUSLY, BECAUSE A GOOD SPY
ALWAYS STAYS HYDRATED.
AH.

Devonte dances in the studio.

Devonte is around 11, with short black hair. He wears a white and red striped T-shirt.

Devonte says WANT TO PASS A SECRET NOTE
AROUND THAT WON'T GET YOU
IN TROUBLE?
I GOT A HACK FOR THAT.
JUST POP SOME STICKY TAPE ON A
NOTEPAD LIKE THIS.
AND THEN WRITE YOUR SECRET
MESSAGE USING A WHITEBOARD
MARKER.
AND THEN YOU CAN PASS YOUR NOTE.
PSST!

He reads a note.

He says "I LIKE TURTLES."
I DID NOT KNOW THAT.
AND THEN IF SOMEONE'S ABOUT IT
READ IT, YOU CAN WIPE IT
STRAIGHT OFF.
YOUR SECRET'S SAFE.
SHH.

The caption changes to "Could you be a spy?"

Gabe says I THINK I WOULD MAKE A GOOD
SPY, BECAUSE I'M VERY ENERGETIC
AND CRAZY AND SUPER-INSANE THAT
I WOULD JUST CATCH THEM.
EVEN IF THEY TRY TO GET AWAY, I
WILL JUST GET THEM.

Molly says YES, I COULD DEFINITELY BE A
SPY, BECAUSE I READ A LOT OF
SPY BOOKS.
OH, I KNOW IF YOU'RE LYING.
LIKE, I CAN TELL THAT.
EVERYONE THINKS IT'S REALLY
WEIRD.
IF YOUR EYES, LIKE, GROW A
LITTLE BIT, THEN YOU'RE LYING.

Lila says I COULD NOT BE A SPY, BECAUSE
I HAVE THE WORST POKER FACE
EVER.
I START LAUGHING!

Gabe says EARLIER ON, I SHOWED YOU HOW
TO MAKE A DIY SPY PERISCOPE TO
KEEP YOUR EYES ON PEOPLE.
(coughing)
BUT NOW, THIS NEXT PRANK WILL
HAVE ALL EYES ON YOU.

He puts on googly eye glasses and says DO YOU LIKE THEM?
(rattling)
THIS ONE IS SUPER SIMPLE.
ALL YOU NEED IS A LOT OF GOOGLY
EYES AND THE STUFF IN YOUR
FRIDGE.
I'M A HOOTING, TOOTING HAND!
OH, YEAH!
FIRST, GO TO YOUR FRIDGE AND PUT
GOOGLY EYES ON EVERY SINGLE
THING.
BANANA, GOOGLY EYES.
YOGHURT, GOOGLY EYES.
APPLE, GOOGLY EYES.
JAM, YOU KNOW THAT NEEDS GOOGLY
EYES!
THEN WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO GET A
MIDNIGHT SNACK.

Next, he appears wearing a suit.

He says I HOPE NOBODY CATCHES ME HAVING
A MIDNIGHT SNACK.

He opens a fridge and yells AH!
THE SNACKS ARE WATCHING ME!

Gabe says THAT'S ALL FROM US ON
HOW TO DO
STUFF GOOD
THIS TIME.
LATER, ALLIGATORS!

The Narrator says FOR MORE
INFORMATION ON
HOW TO DO STUFF
GOOD,
SEARCH UP ABC ME.

Music plays as the end credits roll.
