Big and Small

Series 2

Episode 10: The Big Race

Duration: 10 minutes

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies

Small is zooming around the house in his car, swerving around the furniture and generally causing mayhem. He skids through Ruby's house once too often, however, and she is so annoyed with him that she challenges him to a race. Big helps prepare Ruby's super-speedy vehicle (a cleverly-adapted old skate) and adds some go-faster stripes and new wheels to Small's car. And soon they're off! Big cheers on Small and Ruby as they spin across the garden, loop around the vegetable patch and career around the pond.

It is a very close race and they're neck and neck, but in the final moments the cars bump into each other and into Twiba's tree. Twiba's apple is knocked to the ground and she ends up first past the finishing line. Small and Ruby congratulate Twiba on a surprise win! Show less
