Tall Small

Big and Small, Series 2 Episode 1 of 26

The adventures of two unlikely friends.

Small insists that he is taller than Twiba, but she just knows she is taller than Small. Small is determined to prove her wrong and tell her so eye-to-eye, which means he needs to be tall enough to reach her branch. To help Small do this, Big makes him a Tallerator. This is a stilt-like contraption that makes Small taller, although when Small is practising he has a tendency to fall over, using Big's feet as a crash pad.

Finally Small is tall enough to be face-to-face with Twiba. He struggles over to her tree, but by now Twiba has forgotten what they were talking about. And Small can barely move with the stilts and arm extensions and the stiff padded helmet; he wonders, really, what he is doing. He thinks that sometimes it is better to be Small. And as Big points out, Small is a very good small.
