Well, brace yourselves for a tough one.
Hi, StoryBots.
My name is Dax.
- Hi, Dax! - How are you? StoryBots, I have a question.
Where does rain come from? Uh, where does rain come from? Hmm Boop? Well Oh, I got it.
I know where to find the answer.
StoryBots, prepare for transport.
Let's find out where rain comes from.
Outer World, here we come! Hope you're not in a rush, kid.
Ah! Oh! Ee! Oh! Boop! - Boop.
- That hurt.
Boop.
Bang, why are we here? Isn't it obvious, man? Who's gonna know where rain comes from better than reindeer? I love reindeer! Well, all right.
Let's give it a shot.
So the mushroom says to the clown, "Why not? I'm a fungi!" - Excuse me! - I don't get it, - but it's really funny.
- Excuse me! Mr.
Reindeer! Down here! Hi! Um, hi.
We're here to answer a question for a little boy named Dax.
We could really use your help.
Um Okay.
Could you please tell us where rain comes from? You know, rain, since you are reindeer and all.
Oh, wow.
Okay.
Hey, little buddy, the "rein" in "reindeer" is spelled r-e-i-n.
The rain that falls from the sky is spelled r-a-i-n.
- I knew that.
- I don't think you knew that.
Thanks, Mr.
Reindeer, with an "E.
" Um, any chance you could help us find rain? With an "A"? Um, I dunno.
Rain is wet.
Yeah, because it's made outta water.
That lake over there is made of water.
That's it.
You're brilliant.
To the lake, everyone.
Come on.
Let's go to the lake.
We're going to find rain.
Whoo.
Okay.
Thanks, Mr.
Reindeer, with an "E".
Thanks for all your help.
You guys have been awesome.
Bye.
Bye.
Thanks so much.
Take care.
Bye.
Bye! It was nice to meet you.
Thanks, reindeer.
Bye.
Appreciate all your help.
- See you later! Bye-bye! - Bye.
Good luck on your quest.
That was weird.
Package from the letter "A".
- Huh? - Huh? Hmm Ah.
Alligator.
"A.
" Hooray for "A" "A" is amazing Hooray for "A" A's a big part of your day Hooray for "A" "A" can do almost anything Hooray for "A" "A" is A-Okay Hooray hooray Hooray hooray for "A" I am a StoryBot, and this is the part of the song where I talk about the letter "A.
" And we list things like apples and antelopes and anteaters and other stuff like that.
Yes.
Hooray For "A" Hooray for "A.
" For "A".
Hooray for "A" - Hooray.
- Hooray.
Hooray for "A" For "A".
Hooray for "A" Hooray hooray Hooray hooray for "A" This lake is, like, totally tranquil and stuff, but I don't see any rain.
Yeah, Dax is gonna be waiting a long time.
Why don't we go to the middle of the lake and take a look around? - Well, that's a very good idea.
- Go to the center, that's great.
We could use this leaf as a raft to float to the center of the lake.
Yeah, we could do that, or Help! Release.
Boop.
Jump, Bo.
Boop.
Now! Whoo-hoo! Or we could just use the leaf.
Yeah.
Great idea! Glad I thought of it! Whoa, man, it is hot out here.
This is a lot of heat.
Come on, stick with it, gang.
We're almost to the middle.
Guys, look.
Over there.
Wow.
Is that magic? It's not magic.
It's evaporation.
Evapo-what-shun? Evaporation.
When water heats up, it turns into a vapor that is so light, it floats into the air.
Water floats into the air? Sure does.
That is awesome.
Droppy's the name.
Nice to meet ya.
Well, hi, Droppy.
We were just talking to the reindeer, and they thought you could help us answer Dax's question.
Would you happen to know where rain comes from? Do I know where rain comes from? Of course.
I'm going there right now.
Hop aboard.
Yeah.
Whoa.
We're off to Drizzlyland.
I'm scared of heights.
- Boo.
- Ah.
Scared.
I'm scared Just like I said That's why I hide under my covers And tremble in my bed Of what? I'm not quite sure But it has three eyes A spooky smile And polka-dotted fur I'm scared And I'm shaking like it's chilly I'm scared I really have the willies I'm scared And my parents say it's silly That my imagination Has my hair standing on end Sometimes I'm frightened Of something new Being all alone Or strange noises at the zoo Sometimes it's snakes Or Halloween Watching scary movies Or a fear of being seen By lots of people who are green When I'm scared I can cuddle up With someone who cares Check in the closet Make sure that nothing's there Breathe deep And let my feelings be shared Sometimes I have A fear of heights Sneaky creepy crawlers Or the dark and stormy night Sometimes it's doctors Who give me shots Taking yucky medicine Or itchy chicken pox When I'm scared I can talk about it With someone who cares Check in the closet Make sure that nothing's there Be brave and tell My fears to beware So there! Where are we going, Droppy? Up into the clouds! It's, like, super cold up here, man.
Yeah, pretty nice, huh? Hold on tight.
Whoa! - Whoa! Check it out, man.
- Oh, man.
That's amazing.
Pretty sweet, right? When water vapor cools, we become water droplets.
That's called condensation.
Condensation, huh? Hmm, well, that's great, Droppy, but, um, where are we? Welcome to Drizzlyland! Awesome! Let's go! Follow me.
Okay, guys, let's figure out where rain comes from.
Guys, we really have to answer Dax's question.
Look at that.
Come on, Beep.
Let's have some fun.
Cheese.
Bo, look, it's so pretty.
Whoa.
Whoa.
Guys, we really need to answer Dax's question! Droppy, now will you show us where rain comes from? Well, Beep, welcome to The Torrential Tower.
Ah! Where droplets clump together to make rain! - Wow! - Whoa! - That's really high.
- That looks like fun.
Come on.
Let's do it.
Let's do it.
Come on.
I'm scared of heights.
Come on, Bo.
You'll close your eyes.
Dax needs you.
For Dax? Oh, I'll try.
This is gonna be epic, man.
Come on, come on, come on.
Let's go.
I can't wait.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax Boop.
All droplets please move to the center of the platform.
Droppy, it's getting a little crowded in here.
That's the point! Water vapors are really light, so they float up into the air.
Yeah, we got the evaporation part already.
But after condensation turns us into droplets, we start clumping together.
Oh.
Whoa.
Then we get bigger and bigger and bigger, until we get too heavy to stay floating.
And that's when we plummet to the earth.
Huh? Did he say "plummet to the earth"? Keep an eye on the meter.
When we get heavy enough, cowabunga, dude.
Downpour! Downpour! Downpour! Downpour! I'm scared of downpours.
Downpour! Downpour! Downpour! Ah! Yippee-ki-yay, Mother Nature! Ah! Yeah! Ah! Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Boop! Ha ha! Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Rain.
That was righteous, man.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
Do it for Dax.
- It's okay, Bo.
It's over.
- Do it for Dax.
I love when scary things are over.
Whoo-hoo! I wanna go again.
Who's with me? We're good.
Thanks.
Uh Well, looks like we got our answer.
Thanks for your help, Droppy.
No problem, StoryBots.
Let's head for home, guys.
Hey.
We got our answer.
- Let's go.
- Way to go, guys.
StoryBots fun fact number one hundred ninety-two million three hundred seven thousand four hundred nine.
Did you know that underneath a tiger's striped fur, its skin is striped, too? By shaving the tiger we can learn two things.
One, that the skin shows the same striped pattern as the fur.
And two Tigers do not like to be shaved.

Ninety-seven.
Butter knife.
Red-bellied woodpecker.
So many questions.
Whoa.
Hi, Boss! Ah! What are you doing back here? I told you to get an answer, not dillydally.
We got the answer.
You see, when water heats up, there's this process called evaporation.
Yeah.
The water turns into tiny vapors, and then they float up into the air.
Up? Rain doesn't go up, StoryBots.
It comes down.
Exactly! When those vapors cool down in the clouds, they clump together to form water droplets.
They get bigger and bigger And then they plummet to the earth.
It's pretty heavy, man.
Just just gimme that tape.
Why oh why Does the rain come Tumbling from the sky? Well it all starts when The weather's sunny and fair When the sun hits the ocean Streams and lakes The heated water evaporates Going up up up 'Cause vapor's lighter than air Oh it's in the air I do declare And it's true that you Can't see it now But soon you'll know it's there 'Cause way up high Where it's not so warm When the vapor cools Little droplets form That my friends is condensation And that leads To cloud formation We're gonna get precipitation.
My oh my Now a big, dark cloud Comes drifting by With all those tiny droplets it can contain They get so heavy All squished together So down they fall Bringing wet wet weather Umbrellas go up 'Cause down goes the pouring rain Umbrellas go In the pouring rain Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle.
That was actually pretty good.
Why does he always sound so surprised? Boop? Look, everyone.
It's Dax.
- Hey, Dax.
- Hi, Dax.
Hi, Dax.
Hey.
Down here.
You guys are really smart.
He thinks we're smart.
I'm gonna tell all my friends.
Spencer He's gonna tell Spencer, man.
And I'm also gonna tell Holden.
- Holden.
- He's going to tell Holden.
And, uh, oh, right.
And Charles.
And Charles.
Oh, no way, man! Well, what're you doin' standin' around dillydallying? Get back to work.
Bye, boss.
