KQED Plus: Sun, Jan 27, 2013 -- 7:00 AM

* Scoop the Artist - Today's job is to build a new wing on the museum, before the grand exhibition opening. At the museum, Scoop decides he wants to be a great artist too! Scoop asks David, the artist, to teach him how to paint! At the museum, Bob wonders where Scoop is - they really need his help to get finished before the grand opening! As it was getting dark, Scoop rushes to the Supplier's Yard only to find it shut! He wanted to be an artist as well as a digger, but he didn't actually paint anything! Back at the museum, Bob asks Scoop to dig some flowerbeds. Scoop works extra fast, to make up for being out so long! When they are done, Scoop and David survey the work.... Scoop has dug the flowerbed out - in the shape of a beautiful flower! Now David doesn't need to paint his picture -Scoop is pleased - he's a digger, and an artist!
* Roley's Rovers - There is much excitement at the Yard. The machines find an old soccer ball and toss it around. Roley gets interested in the idea of a mascot, just as Bob arrives with Mr Bentley. He announces that the team are going to be fixing up the old Fixham Rovers soccerball field in time for the school's first game that afternoon! Mr Bentley points out that the Fixham Rovers club green exactly matches Roley's color - making him perfect for being the team mascot! Bob shows Roley the plans. But Roley is too wrapped up in his new world of chants to take them in and absent-mindedly agrees to be in charge of the job! Roley has to save the day. He uses his talent for inspirational chants to encourage the team to work faster than ever before - and re-build the field to be the new home of Fixham Rovers.

* Scratch's Hidden Treasures - It's Scratch's first day, and he's a bit scared - he wants to fit in! Today they are helping by working on the Fixham Museum gardens. However, instead of giving Scratch a job to do,Bob asks him to watch everyone else - you can learn a lot from watching! Scratch spends the day watching the other machines but still isn't satisfied - he wants to do something! He decides to practice digging by himself... While digging Scratch's bucket hits something! He's found treasure! Concentrating hard, Scratch remembers everything he's learned from watching the other machines and manages to dig up the great treasure! Scratch is really pleased and admits that Bob was right - he did learn a lot from watching!
* Lofty and the Monster - Bob and the team are rebuilding an old shack on the beach and transforming it into a surf school with Brad Rad, the awesome new surf instructor. Meanwhile, Scoop, Dizzy and Scrambler are playing a game of monster chase. However, Lofty doesn't realize that it's only a game. He thinks there's a real monster coming to get them! As the build progresses, Scoop, Dizzy and Scrambler take turns to be the monster. But every time they whiz past,screaming with excitement, Lofty closes his eyes tight. Bob and Wendy reassure him that there's no such thing as monsters. Lofty is relieved to find out it is only a game. However, when Brad Rad emerges from the water in his diver's mask and snorkel, Scoop, Dizzy and Scrambler think he's a real monster! But this time Lofty who keeps his cool - there's no such things as monsters - remember!
