Little Gems - Jamie and the Magic Torch
Episode 3 - Yoo-Hoo Yeti
Jamie and Wordsworth do not arrive in quite the usual place when they appear in Cuckoo Land. They were virtually on the doorstep of Blunkett Hall, home of Strumpet Blunkett. They immediately go to the door to investigate. Strumpers who owns the house is singing whilst getting dressed. He eventually comes to the door to greet them. Strumpet asks the two if they want to come with him to the snowy mountains. They agree and the trio travel on one of Strumpet's inventions. They are soon stopped by Constable Gotcha who is looking for the Yoo Hoo bird who is wanted for speeding. The group have not seen him and continue on their journey. They soon find that they are in the cold but beautiful snowy peaks of Cuckoo Land. The machine they are riding on soon breaks down though, Jamie and Wordsworth go sight seeing whilst Strumpet tries to fix it.
The trio are soon frightened by a pair of eyes in the snow. With the help of the torch they soon find out that the eyes belong to the Yoo Hoo bird who was trying to escape from Constable Gotcha. The bird got all tangled up in his scarf and fell in the snow. He then got stuck and could not get out. All's well as they return to Cuckoo Land, that is until Constable Gotcha comes looking for the Yoo Hoo bird and the pair speed off one after the other.
Episode 4 - A Marrow Escape
Jamie and Wordsworth arrive in Cuckoo Land once again. They are walking along when they come across Wellybob the cat's house. Wellybob does everything backwards so his house is easy to recognise. All the furniture is outside in the garden. While they are outside they notice some strange objects rising into the air. They soon realise that Wellybob is using a bicycle pump to inflate vegetables in the garden. Apparently there is to be garden fete and a prize for the smallest vegetable. Wellybob is blowing everything up so he will lose. Wordsworth loves stuffed marrow and suddenly finds that he is being carried away by one. The other two quickly jump on vegetables and set off in pursuit over the beautiful countryside of Cuckoo Land.
The trio soon run into Mr. Boo who is in his flying submachine. Mr. Boo is busy counting all the things to ensure they are in the correct place for things (his words not mine). The airship causes Wellybob's vegetable to speed up and all three have difficulty steering around the ship. They now find that they are heading towards "Prickly mountain" which as the name suggests, spells doom for the inflated vegetables. As expected they all come crashing down to earth but a cool headed Jamie saves the day using the torch. He points it at the ground and creates a magic trampoline to save them all.
