Tightrope is an episode of Series 3. 

Story

R swings on a rope and leaves off, and left’s it behind. G and H see the rope. I sees it also and jumps the rope. G wants to go next, but I takes that and all three stick together. They say I's name, which confuses I. I thinks only she can say her name. T comes by and then splits in two.

t-igh-t, TIGHT!

The rope becomes a tightrope. N and E come and wonder what they're doing up there. The first T falls down and N and E grab him.

n-e-t, NET!

They bounce on a net below them. The second T then falls.

t-e-n-t, TENT!

The setting is now a circus tent. I, G, and H want to get down.

h-igh, HIGH!

The rope comes high above L, S, N, R, T, and M, who have come to rescue them.

What will they do?

  • LIGHT - A light shines on L, IGH, and T causing them to fall down, and lightly float back up on the rope.
  • MIGHT - M says he might has a marvelous idea. But he can't think of one.
  • NIGHT - It gets dark and T wonders who turns off the lights.
  • SIGHT - S wears funny glasses.
  • TIGHT - The rope tosses T, IGH, and T.
  • RIGHT (star word) - R, IGH, and T follow a green arrow pointing right and come down the ladder. E calls for a round of applause, and then a grand finale.

f-r-igh-t, FRIGHT!

E's loudhailer floats behind them, shouting "BOO!" and frightening them. They all laugh afterwards.

Tightrope thinks alphablocks. Nope, not at all. HIGH is only the word you don't have A, B and More.
