# La-la-la-la... # Six! 0:00:37 0:00:39
-Hey, Six!

-I'm just going in the gym.

-Great.

0:00:39 0:00:43
-Oh, great, you've got one of your buddy blocks.

-Yes.

0:00:45 0:00:49
Cos you know you're buddy blocks can turn into buddy sticks. 0:00:49 0:00:53
They certainly can. One buddy stick. 0:00:53 0:00:57
Well, I've taught my buddy blocks to do the same thing. Go on. 0:00:57 0:01:02
-Great. Not quite the same as mine.

-What?

0:01:07 0:01:13
The ends are round. 0:01:13 0:01:15
Oh. Oh, yes. That's exactly what I wanted. 0:01:15 0:01:22
Round. A circle at both ends. 0:01:22 0:01:26
This is...a circle stick. 0:01:26 0:01:29
Um... Can your other buddy blocks turn into circle sticks? 0:01:29 0:01:33
Of course. 0:01:33 0:01:35
Go for it! 0:01:35 0:01:36
They're not quite the same. 0:01:36 0:01:39
No, they're fine. Circle sticks. 0:01:39 0:01:42
Sticks with a circle at both ends. 0:01:42 0:01:46
That one's very tall. 0:01:46 0:01:49
Lovely. 0:01:49 0:01:50
BOTH: Oh! 0:01:52 0:01:54
RATTLING 0:01:54 0:01:55
And that one's very fat! 0:02:00 0:02:02
BOTH: Whoa! 0:02:02 0:02:04
Oh, maybe...maybe my circle sticks aren't quite ready yet. 0:02:04 0:02:10
ELECTRONIC BEEPING 0:02:10 0:02:13
-Never mind. We'll see them later.

-Let's go.

0:02:13 0:02:16
Come on, we've got a call coming in. 0:02:26 0:02:29
-Four, come on!

-I need to check the Brain Gain machine is OK.

0:02:30 0:02:34
-We don't need it now.

-Come on, Four.

-Well, OK.

0:02:34 0:02:40
Agent 44 here. 0:02:42 0:02:44
-What's happening?

-Things are going wrong.

-But not for long!

0:02:44 0:02:48
Look at this boy and his chalk. 0:02:48 0:02:50
Putting it on screen. 0:02:50 0:02:53
He can't draw at all with that chalk! 0:02:59 0:03:01
-He needs help.

-And we're the ones to help him.

0:03:03 0:03:07
Thank you. 0:03:07 0:03:08
-I'd like to help that boy.

-OK.

-In that case, Five is going out!

0:03:08 0:03:13
# We've got a problem What shall we do? 0:03:15 0:03:17
# Who's going out there? Who do we choose? 0:03:17 0:03:20
# Need to get out there Who will it be? # 0:03:20 0:03:22
-Who's going out there?

-Number five!

0:03:22 0:03:26
-Good luck, Five.

-Thank you.

0:03:50 0:03:52
Ready for launch. And I'm scanning the room... 0:03:52 0:03:55
-And it's all clear.

-Let's do it.

0:03:59 0:04:01
ALL: Five, four, three 0:04:08 0:04:11
two, one, zero! 0:04:11 0:04:13
Finding a five... 0:04:20 0:04:23
Finding a five... 0:04:23 0:04:25
I've done it! 0:04:25 0:04:27
Oh...oh. 0:04:30 0:04:31
OK. Time to do some helping out. 0:04:31 0:04:34
More problems! 0:04:37 0:04:39
-Agent 63 here.

-Where's the problem?

-It's in the garden centre.

0:04:39 0:04:44
-Can someone put it on screen while I check this?

-On screen.

0:04:44 0:04:48
She's struggling to move the wood. 0:04:58 0:05:00
She's supposed to be helping the customers. 0:05:00 0:05:04
She's making a mess instead! 0:05:04 0:05:06
That's a very strange bit of wood. 0:05:06 0:05:08
CLATTERING 0:05:08 0:05:10
-More problems!

-There's a man delivering a rolled-up carpet.

0:05:13 0:05:17
I've a feeling this is going to go wrong. 0:05:23 0:05:26
MAN: Whoa! 0:05:29 0:05:31
That carpet is out of control! 0:05:34 0:05:37
Why are all these things going wrong? 0:05:40 0:05:43
Is there anything the same about the chalk, the big bits of wood, 0:05:43 0:05:47
-and the carpet?

-I don't know.

0:05:47 0:05:49
It's the shape. They're all the same shape. 0:05:49 0:05:53
Putting them on screen. 0:05:53 0:05:55
Can you see what's the same about them? 0:05:55 0:05:58
Oh! Oh! They've all got a circle at each end. 0:06:00 0:06:04
Like my circle sticks. 0:06:04 0:06:06
-Put them on screen, Three.

-Oh, yes.

0:06:06 0:06:09
They do look different, but they've all got a circle at each end. 0:06:09 0:06:15
I think shapes with circles at both ends are called cylinders. 0:06:15 0:06:20
OK, so we know what all these things going wrong are called - 0:06:20 0:06:24
cylinders. But why are things this shape going wrong? 0:06:24 0:06:27
I think I know. Listen! 0:06:27 0:06:30
CACKLING 0:06:30 0:06:31
It's the Shape Japer! 0:06:31 0:06:33
-What do we know about the Japer?

-This.

0:06:33 0:06:37
# Looks like the Shape Japer's back 0:06:38 0:06:41
# Shape Japer She's really strange 0:06:41 0:06:46
# Shape Japer 0:06:46 0:06:48
# She loves to make things change 0:06:48 0:06:50
# Changes faces, changing size 0:06:50 0:06:55
# Changing shapes every single time 0:06:55 0:06:59
# Changing shapes is the Japer's game 0:06:59 0:07:04
# The Shape Japer's back again. # 0:07:04 0:07:06
Look. 0:07:06 0:07:07
-Cylinder.

-SHE LAUGHS

0:07:07 0:07:10
-Wow!

-She's got a circle at both ends.

0:07:10 0:07:13
-Cylinder!

-And I bet she's going to make trouble.

0:07:13 0:07:17
-You're right.

-I'm after her.

-More trouble.

0:07:17 0:07:20
Someone's got something to eat. 0:07:20 0:07:22
I think there's going to be... 0:07:22 0:07:24
..a problem. 0:07:26 0:07:27
Cylinder! 0:07:37 0:07:39
There's more trouble here. 0:07:39 0:07:41
Oh, dear. 0:07:49 0:07:51
-Is it another cylinder going wrong?

-It's got a circle at both ends.

0:07:55 0:08:00
Ha-ha-ha-ha! 0:08:00 0:08:02
Cylinder! 0:08:02 0:08:04
She's back! 0:08:04 0:08:05
-Cylinder. Ha-ha-ha-ha!

-The Shape Japer says these are cylinders.

0:08:06 0:08:11
-She might be tricking us.

-They're open at the end

0:08:11 0:08:15
-and don't have a middle.

-But they have got a circle at both ends.

0:08:15 0:08:20
-Let's get some Brain Gain to sort these cylinders out.

-One thing.

0:08:20 0:08:25
-The Brain Gain isn't working very well today.

-Oh, no!

0:08:25 0:08:30
We'll only be able to use it once, 0:08:30 0:08:32
so we can only fix one type of problem. 0:08:32 0:08:35
We've got to be sure everything we send Brain Gain to 0:08:35 0:08:39
really is a cylinder. 0:08:39 0:08:41
-More problems!

-Will they be cylinders too?

0:08:43 0:08:46
The delivery man is in trouble again. 0:08:49 0:08:52
It's very different from the carpet. 0:08:52 0:08:55
-But it has got a circle at both ends.

-More trouble in the kitchen!

0:08:55 0:09:01
Is that cake a cylinder? 0:09:01 0:09:04
Well, the top of the cake is a circle. 0:09:04 0:09:08
And so is the bottom of it. 0:09:17 0:09:19
If cylinders come in all these different types, 0:09:19 0:09:22
there could be trouble anywhere! 0:09:22 0:09:25
Tins of food in the supermarket have got circles at both ends, 0:09:25 0:09:30
so they are cylinders that could go wrong. 0:09:30 0:09:33
SLURPING 0:09:35 0:09:37
A drinking straw is a long hollow cylinder, 0:09:37 0:09:40
so that could be a cylinder that goes wrong! 0:09:40 0:09:43
Ew! Oh! 0:09:43 0:09:45
Or even a really short and fat cylinder like a cheesecake. 0:09:45 0:09:49
If that goes wrong... it could be very messy! 0:09:49 0:09:55
All those different cylinders! So may things to go wrong! 0:09:55 0:09:59
We've got to put the cylinders right. I'll start the Brain Gain machine! 0:09:59 0:10:05
# Brain Gain, Brain Gain To solve a problem, use a brain 0:10:10 0:10:14
# The way to get your brains all linking up together 0:10:14 0:10:17
# Joined-up thinking... # 0:10:17 0:10:18
'Getting brain power now. Brain Gain!' 0:10:18 0:10:22
Hope the different things were cylinders - 0:10:23 0:10:26
-we've only got once chance with the Brain Gain!

-Cylinder Brain Gain.

0:10:26 0:10:31
-Cylinder Brain Gain!

-Sending Brain Gain now!

0:10:31 0:10:35
Cylinder Brain Gain now! 0:10:38 0:10:41
Cylinders back to normal! 0:10:49 0:10:52
Long cylinders back to normal. 0:11:01 0:11:03
Cylinders with open end back to normal. 0:11:05 0:11:09
Short fat cylinder back to normal. 0:11:18 0:11:22
Thin, flat cylinder back to normal. 0:11:26 0:11:29
Yes! 0:11:31 0:11:32
The Brain Gain works for all of the things! 0:11:32 0:11:35
Because they were all cylinders! Hooray! 0:11:35 0:11:39
-Ha-ha...aaaargh!

-She's not happy we've put everything back to normal.

0:11:39 0:11:45
STRANGLED SHRIEKING 0:11:45 0:11:49
-She's gone!

-Hooray!

-Come back now, Five.

0:11:49 0:11:53
ALL: One, two, three, 0:12:00 0:12:02
four, five! 0:12:02 0:12:05
-Well done, Five.

-Amazing, all those different cylinders.

0:12:07 0:12:11
And you can see them all on the screen. 0:12:11 0:12:14
The boy had trouble with cylinders. 0:12:16 0:12:19
And the gardener and the delivery man 0:12:19 0:12:22
were struggling with their cylinders. 0:12:22 0:12:25
And the cylinders with open ends gave lots of trouble too! 0:12:25 0:12:30
So did this cylinder. 0:12:30 0:12:33
And the cake was a very messy cylinder. 0:12:33 0:12:36
One lot of cylinder Brain Gain sorted out 0:12:39 0:12:42
all those different-looking shapes. 0:12:42 0:12:45
Well, my three buddy blocks weren't quite like yours, Six. 0:12:50 0:12:55
Not exactly. 0:12:55 0:12:56
-But they did help us solve the problem with cylinders.

-True.

0:12:56 0:13:00
Lucky my cylinders aren't doing strange things. 0:13:00 0:13:04
Oh. Oh. Oh! Oh! 0:13:04 0:13:09
You are very silly cylinders. 0:13:09 0:13:12
I wonder, how many different sorts of cylinders can you find? 0:13:12 0:13:17
Oh. Oh. Oh! 0:13:17 0:13:20
Remember to look for a circle at each end. 0:13:20 0:13:23
Find big cylinders, small ones, thin ones, fat ones, 0:13:23 0:13:27
long ones, short ones and call the Numberjacks! 0:13:27 0:13:32
