  • Welcome to Plum Landing.

  • Are you earthlings all set?

  • Are you ready to visit a far-off world

  • full of strange and wondrous things?

  • (kids cheering)

  • Fantastic.

  • This is so exciting!

  • I have this new game tool I want to test.

  • It's called...

  • Drum roll, please.

  • The Plink.

  • The what?

  • Plink.

  • Short for Plum link.

  • Because it's a link to me

  • and because it has incredible, amazing powers.

  • It can see under, over and around things.

  • It has maps and cameras.

  • It can even fast-forward through time.

  • Seriously?

  • You mean if I push this button, we'll...

  • Not now, not now.

  • Save it for your mission.

  • A mission?

  • We get a mission?

  • Yes.

  • There are two missions, actually,

  • so you'll go in two groups.

  • Group number one is...

  • Brad, Clem and Cooper.

  • (Brad and Clem cheering)

  • Group 2: Oliver and Gabi.

  • Sweet.

  • So, I'll be sending you by bubble.

  • By what?

  • (kids talking excitedly)

  • Bye. See you later.

  • Ta-ta for now.

  • ALL: Bye!

  • (cheering)

  • This is awesome.

  • (screaming)

  • I'm not feeling so good.

  • That was mega super totally awesome.

  • Where are we?

  • A desert?

  • It looks kind of desert-y.

  • An Australian desert, maybe?

  • (beeping)

  • Hi.

  • Hi, Plum.

  • Are we in the desert?

  • Yep, the Australian desert.

  • And you'll find your top-secret mission in that tree.

  • (grunting)

  • Found it.

  • "Your mission is to..."

  • Find a lake?

  • How could we possibly find a lake in a desert?

  • The whole point of deserts is that they don't have any water.

  • Well, I can find one no problem.

  • In Space Beavers vs. The Thirsty Camel volume 5,

  • the camel could smell water from like a mile away.

  • (sniffing)

  • That way.

  • (panting)

  • Almost there.

  • Almost... there!

  • Uh, aren't lakes supposed to have water?

  • Hang on.

  • Doesn't that look like a shoreline?

  • And see how the ground is curved?

  • So maybe this was a lake, or it will be.

  • In the future.

  • (gasps)

  • Let's try the time-speeder.

  • Okay, here goes.

  • CLEM: It's day...

  • It's night.

  • It's day.

  • It's night.

  • It's working.

  • It's really speeding up time.

  • Whoa... this is awesome.

  • (rumbling overhead)

  • That better not be thunder.

  • (rumbling)

  • (thunder clap)

  • (screaming)

  • You know, I am liking this Plink.

  • Look. I was right.

  • There's our lake.

  • COOPER: You know, I think I read somewhere

  • that it almost never rains in the desert,

  • but when it does, it can flood.

  • (screaming)

  • Whoa!

  • The desert is a completely different place after it rains.

  • Amazing.

  • Hey, are those birds?

  • Can I see the Plink?

  • It's a pelican.

  • And he's eating... fish?

  • And shrimp?

  • How did they get into the lake?

  • It was just sand awhile ago.

  • Guys, I think the lake is evaporating.

  • BRAD: It's what-ing?

  • COOPER: Evaporating.

  • It's when energy from the sun

  • makes water molecules bounce into the air.

  • When enough molecules get bounced away,

  • there's no more water.

  • We had it on a science test.

  • Hmm... hey, look.

  • Day 90.

  • We lived through 90 days in just two minutes.

  • So in a couple of months, an entire lake can come and go.

  • That's just...

  • Wow!

  • Let's take a picture so we can prove we found it.

  • Yahoo!

  • Calling Plum, calling Plum, come in, Plum.

  • Mission accomplished.

  • We found the lake, though mostly it was me.

  • You guys are fantastico.

  • That was a hard mission and you did it.

  • So the time-speeder worked, you solved the challenge...

  • Are you ready to come back to the ship?

  • Uh... no?

  • Well, then, stay for a while.

  • Take more pictures.

  • I need some for another game.

  • Let's see, I need a bilby, a Thorny Devil, a camel...

  • Kangaroo.

  • Yes. How did you guess?

  • Stop!

  • We need your picture!

  • Come back!

  • Stop!

  • Come on!

Welcome to Plum Landing.
