Box is the nineteenth Season 2 episode of Alphablocks.


Alphablocks, a dressing-up box - it must be show time! B, O, and X discover a dressing-up box that is filled with everything they need to put on a performance of Sleeping Beauty, except for something to sleep on.


O and X are playing noughts-and-crosses (tic-tac-toe), and X wins. B wants to join in.

b-o-x, BOX!

A box appears. X opens it and inside are props. P pops in and decides to put on a play.

At the Alphablocks Players, the play is "Sleeping Beauty". P is the narrator and L plays as a princess. I is supposed to be a witch, but doesn't have a costume.

h-a-g, HAG!

I is now a witch. She pulls a trick on L with a wheel. L pricks her finger and starts to fall asleep, but she needs something to sleep on. Some Alphablocks come to help.

What will they do?

  • FED - L as Snow White feeds the seven Alphablocks-styled dwarves.
  • LED - A flute appears playing as the Pied Piper plays a cheery tune and leads W,B,T,R, and F offstage.
  • RED - L as Little Red Riding Hood meets a Big Bad Wolf.
  • TED - L as Goldilocks comes to a house where the Three Bears live.
  • WED - L and an artificial cutout prince are wed and live happily ever after.
  • BED (star word) - L lies down on a bed. In the audience, Z snores and N wakes him up. G grows prickly plants around the palace. Just then an extremely brave prince, X, comes to the rescue. He wakes up L by writing an X on his cheek... and they live happily ever after. E, D, I, T, R, F, W, and B appears. The cast comes in for a bow as the curtain closes.
