Do you ever make a normal entrance? [StoryBots.]
Sir, yes, sir.
- [Bang.]
Ready for action.
- [Bo.]
We're here.
I've got a real whopper of a question on my hands here, StoryBots.
And this kid needs an answer fast.
Capisce? Hey, StoryBots.
My name is Spencer.
- [Beep.]
Hey, Spencer.
- [Bang.]
Hey, Spence.
StoryBots, I want to know why does night happen? [cricket chirping.]
Uh Why does night happen? Um Uh - Hmm? - Uh, huh.
I know, I know.
I know where to find the answer.
[beeping.]
[alarm blares.]
StoryBots, prepare for transport.
Let's find out why night happens.
[in unison.]
Outer World, here we come.
[suction sound.]
I ain't makin' no promises, kid.
Needs butter.
[StoryBots screaming.]
Ah! Ohh-aah! Ee! Aaah! Boop! [all screaming.]
- [coughs.]
- [gasps.]
[Bing.]
Well, that wasn't so bad.
[growling.]
[all screaming.]
Whoa! [trumpet blows fanfare.]
Where are we, bro? We're at a castle.
It's so cool.
I bet there are lots of places to hide.
Boop.
Why'd you bring us here, Bo? Well, Spencer wants to know how night happens, and who better to ask how night happens than a knight? [dragon growling.]
[knight.]
I'm merely toying with you, dragon.
I could slay you at any time.
[laughing.]
Uh, OK.
- [dragon growling.]
- [Beep.]
Excuse me, Mr.
Knight? - Hang on, hang on.
- Mr.
Knight! I am not Mr.
Knight.
I am King Yardstick, he ruler.
Ugh! Well, we're trying to find out the answer to how night happens for a boy named Spencer.
I have no idea how night happens for a boy named Spencer.
I don't even know a boy named Spencer.
So this night thing concerns me how? You know, night.
You're a knight, and we're trying to find out how night happens.
[chuckling.]
[laughing.]
[guffawing.]
- [dragon and knight laughing.]
- [Beep.]
Oh! [laughter subsides.]
I'm afraid there's been a misunderstanding.
I am indeed a knight.
But I am a knight spelled k-n-i-g-h-t.
"Kuh-night"? No, no, no! Look at the "K.
" You hear it say anything? That's because it's silent.
[trumpet playing fanfare.]
Whoa! The night you're looking for is the opposite of day.
That's spelled n-i-g-h-t.
There's no "K.
" OK? Thanks, Mr.
Knight, but do you have any idea how we can find night? - Starting with "N"? - Yeah.
For the night you are looking for, thou must follow the sun.
Ooh! [all gasp.]
- I love the sun.
- Great idea.
- [Bang.]
Thanks, dude.
- [Bo.]
Goodbye.
- [Bing.]
Thank you.
- [Bang.]
Thank you, sir.
All right.
See you later.
- [Bo.]
Next time we'll leave off the "K".
- Goodbye.
It'll be dark before you know it.
Where was I? Ah, yes.
Ah.
- [laughing.]

[Beep.]
Well, here we are, guys.
A perfect place to sit and observe the sun.
I sure hope this helps us figure out how night happens.

[StoryBots shouting.]
[Beep.]
Follow that sun.
[Bo.]
Oh, my goodness, it's so pretty.
Look at all the sparkly fish.
[Bang.]
But the ocean is huge.
Yeah, how are we ever gonna find the sun down here? How about we split up and ask around? Someone here must know where we can find the sun.
Meet back here in an hour, and - [Bang.]
Adios.

OK, bye.
And be careful.
[sighs.]
Hello, Mrs.
Clam.
My name is Bang, and I was wondering if I might [clam.]

Not a thing.
Boop.
Oh, at this rate, we'll never find the sun.
[whale.]
Did I hear somebody say they're looking for the sun? [Beep.]
Uh that was us, Mr.
Whale.
[giggling.]
Well, why are you lookin' down here? This is where we saw it dip into the water, so we swam over.
[giggling.]
The sun doesn't go into the water, StoryBots.
The sun stays in outer space.
- [Beep.]
Oh, cool.
- [Bang.]
Awesome.
[Bing.]
I knew that.
[Beep.]
Thanks, Mr.
Whale.
[Bing.]
Yeah, thanks, Mr.

Oh! Is anyone else hot? Ah, I'm sort of burnin' up here.
Oh, my goodness.
Oh, why is it so hot? [Bang.]
Because we are impossibly close to a giant ball of burning gas.
Hey, StoryBots.
[Beep and Bang.]
Hey, Mr.
Sun.
[Bing.]
Hey, Mr.
Sun.
[Bo.]
Hi, Mr.
Sun.
[Bang.]
Hey.
You guys want to play some pinochle? Uh, we'd love to, Mr.
Sun, but we're actually working right now.
[Bang.]
Yeah, we gotta answer a question for a cool cat named Spencer.
He wants to know how night happens.
You know, when you go away? Go away? [laughing.]
[coughing.]
Ah, 'scuse me.
Whoo.
Solar flare.
A Ahem! You guys really crack me up.
I don't go anywhere, StoryBots.
The Earth travels around me.
- [people screaming.]
- Like this.
But if you don't go anywhere, how does night happen? See how my light only hits the side of the Earth that's closest to me? Well, that's day.
Whoa.
See how the side facing away from me is dark? [all.]
Uh-huh.
Well, that's night.
And the Earth - [people screaming.]
- is always spinning.
So if you're standing on the dark side here, it's night.
And when you spin into the side that's light, it becomes day.
Whoa! And when you spin back into the side that's dark [StoryBots.]
That's how night happens.
Correct-a-mundo! [people screaming.]
Looks like we got our answer, guys.
- [Bing.]
Yeah.
- [Bang.]
Fantabulous.
[Bing.]
Thanks, Mr.
Sun.
Thanks for everything.
[Beep.]
Thank you so much.
See you soon.
You guys sure you don't wanna stay and play pinochle? [Beep.]
We have to get back to Spencer.
Maybe next time.
Thanks, Mr.
Sun.
Bye.
OK! See ya, StoryBots.
Come back soon.

Just five billion more years before I can retire.

Naked mole rat.
Pablo Picasso.
Steel cut oatmeal.
Huh? [StoryBots grunting.]
We got it, Hap.
We got the answer.
We know how night happens.
[Bang and Bo.]
We sure do.
[Bing.]
We totally got the answer.
Quiet.
Start at the beginning.
Well, you see, at any given moment, half of the Earth is facing the sun, and the other half is facing away.
It's kinda like a yin-yang thing, man Yeah.
And the side that's facing the sun is day, and the side that's facing away is night.
Yeah.
And the Earth is always spinning.
So when you're standing on the side that's light and you get spun onto the side that's dark, [StoryBots.]
that's how night happens.
Just gimme that tape.
Tell me what is night Does the sun shut off Like a giant light? No! Does it just go missin'? No! Try to picture this, Or better yet look and listen As the Earth rotates Every spot on it alternates and so We go from facin' the sun That's day To night when we face away Night's when we face away Pa-pa-pa-ra-pa So when our sky goes dark It's sunny on some distant part Of our dizzy planet You're like wow But now you understand it The sun just sits there in the sky While Earth spins Round and round That's why we go From facing the sun That's day To night when we face away Night's when we face away Night's when we face away Face away Let's watch the light fade away As we turn away [owl hooting.]
Whoa.
That was actually pretty good.
O-oh, that's the nicest thing he's ever said.
Boop.
Hey, look, guys, it's Spencer! [Bing.]
Hey, Spencer.
How ya doin', man? Good to see ya.
So that's it, Spencer.
That's how night works.
Really, that's how it works? - [Bang.]

[Bo.]
That's how it works.
- Really? - [Bang.]
Uh, yep.
Really? Yeah.
