Ants is an episode of Series 3 of Alphablocks.


T counts down while A drops in in time for the picnic. N arrives ten seconds late. T has tea for the picnic. A has apples. N has... nothing, of course. T tells him he can't except a picnic to appear.

a-n-t, ANT!

An ant appears, tickling A, N, and T, and steals the apples. A blames N, when he says it wasn't him. S appears to help.

a-n-t-s, ANTS!

Many ants appear, tickling A, N, T, and S and steal T's tea set. A, T, and S shout N's name in blame of him. N says it wasn't him. P pops in.

p-a-n-t-s, PANTS!

Six pairs of pants appear. They float down like parachutes. The ants are carrying them. When they land, they carry P, A, N, T, and S away from the picnic.
