oh... heh-heh. i knew that. oh! i can't wait to meet astronaut moon! someday i wanna go into space like her! this just in, folks! here comes mayor fox now! (horn honks) good morning, mayor fox! i hope you brought the key to busytown with you! (chuckles) of course i did, goldbug! i have the key right... here? oops! i seem to have misplaced it. sally: i lose my keys all the time. they are pretty small! but this key isn't small, sally. see? here's a picture of it. whoa! how could anyone lose a key that's that big? i don't know, lowly. i was sure it never left my hand all morning! hmm... a missing key! well, you may have lost the key to busytown, mayor fox, but i think we just found...
a mystery!

i was there for the grand opening ceremony. great! then that's the first place we'll check! (wind gusts) (helicopter rotors beat) (gasps) oh no! astronaut moon's helicopter is here! what will i do without that key to the city to give to her?! huckle: don't worry, mayor fox, we'll find it. someone will need to keep astronaut moon busy while we look for the key. ooh! i'll do it! no! me! me! great! tell you what, lads. you can both do it. oh, and we'll use these to keep in touch. both: ohhh! walkie-talkies! okay, guys, as soon as we find the big key, we'll call you on the walkie-talkie, and then we'll meet back here. got it? roger, huckle! 10-4, good buddy! (car whirs) (rotors beat) crowd: (excited and awed chatter) it's astronaut moon! pig will and pig won't: welcome to busytown, astronaut moon! thank you. thank you.
um... i don't suppose one of you is the mayor of busytown? no. i'm pig will. and i'm pig won't. we're mayor fox's official assistants! you'll be meeting him soon. but first, we're supposed to show you around busytown. uh-huh! so, we're going to take you to... to... um... (nervous whine) help me out here, pig will. er... uh... (gasps) the busytown fair! that's where! it'll be great. we can go on rides! i love rides - how they go up and down and 'round and 'round! just like you're in outer space! let's go, astronaut pig won't! ready for take off, astronaut pig will! pig will to huckle. operation orbiting astronaut has just been launched. that's great, pig will. we're at the candy shop now looking for the key. pig will: a-okay. over and out. monsieur sweet: i'm very sorry, mayor fox, but i've looked all over the shop and i can't find your big, shiny gold key anywhere!
but it has to be here! sally: what if we watch mayor fox redo everything he did at the grand opening. then we can see if he ever needed to set the key down. great idea, sally! and if he did need to set it down, we'll know where to look for it. and to make it easier, i'll stand in for the key! ta-daaa! great, lowly! so, what did you do first, mayor fox? well, the first thing i did was... cut the ribbon for the grand opening. great, then that's the first thing we'll get you to do again. monsieur sweet: ah! i'll go get the scissors and ribbon and meet you outside! pig will: calling, huckle. come in, huckle. have you solved the mystery yet? sorry, pig will, not yet. are you guys okay? pig will: sort of... we're keeping astronaut moon busy at the busytown fair... isn't this fun?! pig will: i guess so. pig won't: as long as our caramel corn and cotton candy stays inside our bellies. huckle: well, try to keep astronaut moon busy
you're just in time! mayor fox is ready to redo the ribbon-cutting! (snip) well, that was easy to do with one hand! so, mayor fox probably didn't set the key down to cut the ribbon! right! so, what did you do next? ah! next, i packed the first box of monsieur sweet's yummy chocolates! great! then you should do that again! (munches) mmmm! there! that was easy, too! just like before. well, we've learned two things: the mayor didn't have to set the gold key down
to put chocolates in the box... (giggles) and he has a sweet tooth! whoa! what's that gizmo, monsieur sweet? ah, lowly! you'll see! follow me! now watch! the mechanical arms grab these scrumptious nougat bars... then carry them to a vat... where they dip them in creamy chocolate! finally, the chocolate-coated bars are whisked away for packaging! mayor fox: ooh... chocolate! i'll make sure you each get one! (chuckles) so what did you do next, mayor fox? ahhh! next, i got to stir a big tub of monsieur sweet's gooiest taffy! all: to the big tub of taffy! this was my favourite part because i got to lick the big spoon after! aha! did you see that, sally?
yep! mayor fox had to set lowly down, because he needed two hands to hold the big spoon! why, you're right! i didn't even notice! huckle: hmm... so that means the mayor must've set the gold key down here, too! but if i did, where did it go? it's not here! lowly: hey! where am i going?! lowly? sally and huckle: where are you, lowly? lowly? lowly: over here, guys! sally and huckle: (gasps) lowly! jump! sally: lowly! are you okay? lowly: (sighs) that was close! i almost got chocolate-coated! chocolate-coated? hmm... (mechanical whirring) aha! i think i know where we can find the mayor's big gold key! tell us, huckle! do you have a sweet solution to the mystery?
a very sweet solution, goldbug. here's what i think happened. since the only place mayor fox had been was the candy shop, we knew that the key must be there somewhere. we watched mayor fox redo everything he had done earlier to see if he had ever needed to put the key down. we figured that he must've put the key on the conveyor belt. then i think that the conveyor started moving and carried the key over to the mechanical arms, dipped it in chocolate and took it to be packaged. monsieur sweet couldn't find the gold key because it was now a chocolate-coated key in a package! can you please show us where the chocolate-coated bars get packaged? of course, huckle. follow me! i'll bet the key is in one of those packages! the shape of this package doesn't look right. yup. one chocolate-covered key to the city. ♪ everybody, all together
♪ solved a mystery with huckle ♪ ♪ you can solve one too! all: hurray for huckle! there you have it, folks! huckle and his team have found the key evidence to solve the mystery of the lost key! come on, everyone! we have a famous astronaut to welcome! come in, pig will and pig won't. i've got great news! we found the key! roger, huckle. we'll see you soon... if our legs stop shaking. astronaut moon: hey, space cadets! how about one more rocket roller coaster ride?! pig will and pig won't: (groan) mayor fox: as busytown's mayor, i officially welcome astronaut moon by giving her the key to our fair city! thank you so much. mmm, chocolate! my favourite! i would like to share this key with my two delightful astronauts-in-training. here, have a taste, pig will and pig won't.
g: "the door knocker mystery" beep, traffic whirs) (bike bell dings) hmm... (cars slow down) why'd you stop, lowly? am i seeing things or does that bush at mr. gronkle's house have feet? sally: it does have feet! that is weird! i think someone might be spying on mr. gronkle's house. should we tell mr. gronkle? sure we should. no one likes being spied on. come on!
let's sneak around to the back door and tell him. (knocking) grrr! there's that knocking again! maybe he's not home. mr. gronkle: aha! huckle, sally and lowly: yaaahhhh! so it's you knocking on my door! we just wanted to tell you that someone's spying on you, mr. gronkle! he's hiding in the bushes in front of your house. oh, that was me! someone's been knocking on my door, but every time i open it, there's no one there. i was hiding in the bushes so i could catch the rascal. (knocking on the door) it sounds like your knocker is back! hurry! let's go see who it is! sally: who would knock on a door and then go away? that's what i'd like to know! i'd like to know too. this sounds to me like... a mystery!
huckle, sally and lowly: busytown action bug news! (tires screech) (lift whirs) goldbug here with busytown's latest news story. huckle, what can you tell our viewers? well, goldbug, someone has been knocking on mr. gronkle's door. but every time he answers it, there's nobody there. how can that be? that's what we don't know, and that's what we're going to find out! right team? right, huckle! we sure are! ready for it! here it goes! ♪ who? what? why? how? ♪ who? what? when? where? why? how? ♪ ♪ everybody ♪ who? what? when? where? why? how? ♪ ♪ solve a mystery ♪ who? what? when? where? why? how? ♪ sally: let's get busytown! there you have it, folks! will this be an open and shut case? stay tuned as huckle and his pals try to solve the door knocker mystery. and that's the buzz in busytown! goldbug out!
(tires screech, van beeps) hmm... what clues do we have to work with, team? well, we have a door. (camera chutter clicks) and no one in sight. wait a minute, there's someone! postman pig! maybe that's who knocked on mr. gronkle's door. come on, guys. sally: hi, postman pig! huckle and lowly: good morning. hey! hello, kids. what's up today? well, someone was just knocking on mr. gronkle's door, and we wondered if maybe it was you. nope, it wasn't me. my delivery route starts from the other end of the street. i haven't reached mr. gronkle's house yet. thanks. oh, you're welcome. pig will: i'm the birdwatching expert, so i get to carry the binoculars. i'm more of an expert than you, so i get to carry the binoculars. i should carry them! i should carry them! lowly: why don't you both carry the binoculars? that way you can spend more time bird watching, and less time arguing. pig will: well okay. pig won't: i guess so.
i whirs by) (knocking on a door) someone's knocking on mr. gronkle's door again! that's not coming from mr. gronkle's house. it's coming from miss honey's house! let's go check it out! sally: there's nobody here! the mystery knocker must be a magician! who else could keep disappearing so fast? look. miss honey has a doorbell button... so why would someone knock on the door? you're right. why would they knock? (door opens) miss honey: why good morning, children. i thought i heard someone knocking at the door. sally: actually, we aren't the ones who knocked, miss honey. but we're looking for whoever did. someone's been knocking at mr. gronkle's house too, and then leaving before he answers the door.
that's strange. why would someone do that? (knocking at the door) now there's someone at the back door. do you mind if we take a shortcut to see who it is? please do! go straight on through! (door squeaks open and closed) gone again? do you believe it?! lowly: ah... it's someone invisible playing a joke on us. that's what it is. someone invisible? who would that be? who knows? you can't see them! huckle: hmm... that's odd. (taps on the door) this screen door goes tap tap tap, not knock knock knock. the knocking must be coming from somewhere else. (knocking sound nearby) it's coming from the garden shed! this mystery just keeps getting stranger. who would knock on a garden shed door? no one lives in the shed. sally: maybe it's someone on the inside, knocking to get out. nope... no one in here. look at this.
there are little holes in the door. sally, could i please see those pictures you took of mr. gronkle's and miss honey's doors? sally: sure thing, big brother! look. miss honey's door and mr. gronkle's door both had tiny holes in them. sally: could the little holes have something to do with the knocking? (bushes rustle) shhh... aha! pig will and pig won't: yaaahhh! why are you guys hiding behind there? shhh... (bushes rustle) we've spotted a rare bird! pig will: it's called a flamingo! i'll bet nobody in busytown has ever seen one before! heh. unless they've been to the gardening store. what you've found is a plastic flamingo. it's not plastic! it's a real flamingo! yeah! can't you hear it calling?! (squeaking sounds) (clothesline squeaks)
(giggles) all i hear is the neighbour's squeaky clothesline. i told you that wasn't a flamingo calling. then what does a flamingo sound like? (squeaky honking sounds) pig will and pig won't: that's what a flamingo sounds like! (squeaky honking sounds) sally: it's just someone practicing the saxophone. huckle, sally and lowly: (stifled laughter) come on! if we're going to solve our mystery, we need to look and listen for more clues. (knocking sound) that's strange. i'm sure i hear someone knocking, but there aren't any houses around. that knocking isn't coming from a house... it's coming from that tree! who would be knocking up in the tree? pig will: someone must be building a tree fort up there. pig won't: that's silly! we would see a tree fort. no, it's someone's nailing a sign to the tree. a sign?! now that's silly!
who could read a sign if it's way up there?! i'll find out what it is! can i borrow your camera, sally? sure. (camera shutter clicks) guess what?! it's a bird! (camera beeps) a bird was nailing a sign to the tree? heh. it didn't have a sign. pig won't: it was building a tree house? sally: (giggles) no. nothing like that. look. oh. it's a seagull. no it's not. it's a pigeon. i don't think it's a pigeon or a seagull. do you mind if i borrow your bird book, please? let's see here. "d" is for "duck." "h" is for "hawk." sally and lowly: that's it! yup! "w" is for "woodpecker." it says here that woodpeckers peck at wood to search for their favourite food - insects! well, that explains what was knocking on the tree. but we still don't know
what was knocking on the doors. hmm... could i see that bird picture again? sally: sure. huckle: these little holes that the woodpecker made in the tree look awfully familiar... that's it! i think i've solved the door knocker mystery! (news van beeps) well, huckle, can you give us the key points on this door knocker mystery? i sure can, goldbug. here's what i think happened. we knew that the mystery knocker wasn't postman pig, because he hadn't even been down mr. gronkle's side of the street yet. we also thought it was odd that whoever knocked on miss honey's door didn't think to use the doorbell. that's when we noticed the garden shed door had tiny holes in it. the same holes that were in ms.honey's door and mr. gronkle's door. and then we heard a woodpecker pecking in a tree - making a noise that sounds just like knocking. when i noticed that the woodpecker made little holes in the tree when it pecked at it... i realized that the holes were just like the ones we saw in the doors.
so i think that the mystery door knocker was actually a woodpecker, pecking at the wooden doors trying to find insects. a bird that knocks on doors?! i'll have to see that to believe it! sally: there it goes! (knocking) what do you know? huckle was right! yes! huckle was right! you heard it here first, folks. the door knocker mystery has been solved! ♪ everybody, all together ♪ solved a mystery with huckle ♪ ♪ you can solve one too! sally, lowly and pig twins: hurray for huckle! when it comes to solving mysteries, you can't knock huckle and his team. they're the best in busytown! goldbug out! (tires screech, news van beeps) huckle: hey, woodpecker! i'd fly clear of mr. gronkle's door, if i were you! (chuckles) he's grumpier than usual today.
