Thing is the thirteenth Season 3 episode of Alphablocks.

Story

T pours a cup of tea. He asks H for tea, but instead she sticks with T. TH sees N doing nothing and some other Alphablocks doing their activities. TH decides to make something for N.

/θ/-/ɪ/-/ŋ/, THING!

An anonymous thing appears. TH sings about the Thing that has a wheel and a spring, a thread you can pull and a bell you can ring, some buttons to press, three levers to pull, and a prop at the top with a switch underneath. It also has a balloon what makes it fly. Some Alphablocks want the anonymous thing, but TH says there is only one. Then D pushes a button on the thing, making it place E and M next to TH.

/ð/-/ɛ/-/m/, THEM!

Many other things appear. The Alphablocks ride them to the sky as the episode ends.

Lyrics

A thing is a thing with a wheel and a spring
A thread you can pull and a bell you can ring.
There's a button to press with your thumb or your thigh
Three levers to push, go on, give them a try
There's a prop at the top with a switch underneath
Which releases a string and a pair of false teeth
It's got these, it's got those, and a third over there
Don't touch the fourth, it will give you a scare
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
It's got width, it's got breadth, It's got length, it's got height
It's got wings that fold out for when it's in flight
From the north to the south, to the east, to the west
A thing is a thing that can do things the best

It can do /ð/-/ɪ/-/s/, this!
Or it can do /ð/-/æ/-/t/, that!
It can be /θ/-/ɪ/-/k/, thick!
Or it can be flat
It'll have to be /θ/-/ɪ/-/n/, thin!
To get it through there
But if it won't fit
You can fill it with hot air

A thing is a thing with a wheel and a spring
A thread you can pull and a bell you can ring.
There's a button to press with your thumb or your thigh
Three levers to push, go on, give them a try
There's a prop at the top with a switch underneath
Which releases a string and a pair of false teeth
It's got these, it's got those, and a third over there
Don't touch the fourth, it will give you a scare
Oh, yeah
Oh, yeah
It's got width, it's got breadth, It's got length, it's got height
It's got wings that fold out for when it's in flight
From the north to the south, to the east, to the west
A thing is a thing that can do things the best

Ending

A thing is a thing with a wheel and a spring
A thread you can pull and a bell you can ring
From the north to the south, to the east, to the west
A thing is a thing that can do things the best!
