Episode Gallery Transcript

Nine is the nineteenth episode of the Numberblocks series and the fourth episode of Season 2.


Four is upset that he is the only square Numberblock in the world. He starts to cry, but Eight tries to help him by arranging himself into a square, until Four and One point out that he is a square with a hole. One sees this and fits in.

8 + 1 = 9

Four is excited to see Nine and shows him the magic mirror and creates another Nine, who starts to sneeze out his middle block.

9 - 1 = 8

Both Four and Nine are square Numberblocks, due to them both having 4 sides and 4 corners. Four asks him why he has a number 9 on top. Nine explains in song that he is 3 rows of 3 blocks by 3, and Four is 2 blocks by 2.

As the episode ends, Nine starts to sneeze again, but Four gives him a hanky, and together the two of them say "Squares!"


9: 1, 2, 3 3 blocks in my first row

1, 2, 3 3 blocks in my second

1, 2, 3 3 blocks in my third row

3 rows of 3 3 rows combined

As you can see 3 rows of 3 make 9

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9...

Ooh, tickly nose!

I'm fine!


1, 2, 3 3 blocks in a column

1, 2, 3 3 blocks top to bottom

1, 2, 3 3 blocks if you've got them

3 lots of 3 3 in a line

As you can see

4: 3 lots of 3 make 9...

9: That's right!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

I'm 3 blocks up and down

And 3 from side to side

I'm the same in both directions

I'm as tall as I am wide

That's why I'm square like you

I'm 3 by 3 You're 2 by 2

I'm 2 by 2 You're 3 by 3

That's why you're square like me

4: We seem a very unlikely pair

But now you've explained it I see the squareness we share

I'm 2 blocks up and down

And 2 from side to side

I'm the same in both directions

I'm as tall as I am wide

9: That's why I'm square like you

I'm 3 by 3

I'm 2 by 2

That's why I'm square...


4: Yes, I am square like you

9: I'm 3 by 3 You're 2 by 2

4: I'm 2 by 2 You're 3 by 3

That's why you're square

9: That's why you're square

Both: That's why you're square like me

1, 2, 3, 4

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9!
