Going Wrong, Going Long was the second episode of Season 1 of Numberjacks. It introduced the Problem Blob, and the meanies as a concept. It was also the first appearance of the Dancing Cow, a character who would appear regularly within Five's imagination.

Plot Edit

Three wants to be taller than Four. When she hears Five sing, she decides to sing for ages, making Four go mad.

The alarm goes off and there's a problem. A pencil is growing longer. Four goes out.

Three cannot find a number 4 for Four to land on. Six calls Agent 16 to get the boy to write a 4. The boy does so and 4 lands on it. Four sees a blob of green slime and knows whom it belongs to: The Problem Blob!

Four sorts out the pencil with brain gain. Then the Blob causes more longer-growing problems at the cafe. Four puts everything back to normal and shrinks the Problem Blob. Four then comes home. Then he sees on the screen two pencils the same height. Next he sees the the cleaner's got a twin brother with two same mops.
