[Ben] If I had to pick my favorite artist
in the city of Motown,
uh, in the whole world, actually,
I'd pick Doc Ellington.
His brushwork is so detailed.
I mean, his ideas are so cool!
Everything he does is so epic!
So when I found out he was going to judge
an art competition at school,
I really wanted to impress him.
I mean, I wanted to win!
Creativity is not about prizes,
but what inspires us.
Although, let's not fudge.
I'm here to judge.
[Ben gulps]
Chill, Ben, you got this.
Not necessarily.
Yours is awesome.
Now, is it a plane, or is it a bird?
I like things abstract,
so I'm giving you third.
Third? Word!
The way you captured movement beckoned.
Angie, I had to give you second.
You the man, Doc.
But the piece I found
most compelling of all, belongs to
I believe it's called Fall.
Ha-ha! Cool!
[all cheering]
Little brother, don't be distressed.
It ain't just about being the best.
When you're ready for the next level,
don't settle.
Reach out for me
and you'll see what you can be.
[grunting] Come on!
We all know what, "it ain't about
being the best" really means.
Yeah! Oh, wait, I don't.
It means he hated it.
I feel you, man.
My macaroni dolphin
totally deserved a ribbon.
If my favorite artist
doesn't like my work, I don't.
Maybe I should just give up art.
Give up art? No way!
Just in time, Ange.
Ben needs some serious cheering up.
You can't cheer me up!
I'm uncheerupable!
Well, I'm not here to cheer you up.
I'm here 'cause something weird
is happening.
[Angie] Okay, what's wrong
with this picture?
They look lost. Scared.
[chuckles] Yeah, like me,
before a math quiz.
You guys are overreact
Uh, overthink
I mean, ugh, it's just a picture!
Okay, then it won't hurt
to go see 'em, huh?
ABC, easy as one, two, three!
See? Not normal.
Quick! Uh, before it blows up
or something!
Come on, Ben!
But what if it's dangerous
Uh, hazardous I mean Whoa!
Oh, no!
I hate to say I told you so.
Wait, I love saying I told you so.
Dancing Machine?
[all screaming]
Whoa! Thanks for the soft landing,
Jimmy Mack.
[chuckles] Sure, anytime!
But, uh, who's Jimmy Mack?
Sorry, kids,
his memory stopped functioning
right around the time
my kicks rusted over.
But when Uh, how?
I mean Why is this happening?
I don't know.
We've been looking for Skywriter
to get the skinny.
Benny, uh, we can work out why later.
Right now, you need to fix it.
But what if I make things worse?
Uh, I'd be impressed if you could.
[inhales deeply]
It's working!
Oh, yeah!
That's dynomatic!
[gasps] Rocky road ahead!
-Keep her steady!
-[Ben and Jimmy] I am!
-[all] Whoa!
Oh, drag.
I'm sorry, Dancin' Machine!
[gasps] Brace yourselves!
[all screaming]
Ah, Benny! I think
you dropped the magic paint!
Okay, that's definitely worse.
It's cool.
Jimmy Mack, do your 'copter thing.
Sure! Comin' right up!
Huh? Gotta be here somewhere.
Uh, uh
Oh, one 'copter.
Uh, at your service!
[all] Whoa!
[Dancing Machine] That was so heavy.
[gasps] Whitewater! Turbulence! Uh
[Angie] Hold on, everyone!
Reach out, Mickey!

You guys! Look!
It's broken!
This whole place is about to break!
[Skywriter] I've been trying
to reach out to The Maestro
to ask how to fix this mess,
but it's kinda hard to fly
when you can't trust the sky.
What's that cat playing at?
Well, this looks like a language.
With enough practice, you could read it.
[Skywriter reading] "When you choose
to create, magic happens."
[chuckles] That's pure poetry!
What's it mean?
It means it's time
to take up painting again!
But look at it. The magic's gone.
Like, it's given up.
[chuckles] Yeah, but you gave up first.
[water roaring]
[Angie panting]
Put it in reverse, Jimmy!
[chuckles] I will!
Soon as I remember how.
Just leave it to me, Ben. You gotta fly!
Hey, hey, I remembered your name!
I remembered!
"Gotta fly." That's it!
Hey! That feels familiar!
[both gasp]
I'll be there ♪
To always see you through ♪
I'll be there ♪
To love and comfort you ♪
Reach out ♪
[Jimmy Mack]
Come on, girl, reach out for me.
Reach out
Reach out for me! ♪
[chuckles] It's as beautiful
as I definitely now remember!
Bye, everyone!
Wait! Uh, wait, wait, aren't you
going to stay and enjoy your handiwork?
Sorry, guys, but there's something
I gotta do.
[inhales deeply]
Mr. Ellington?
Ah! Sorry, young man.
Did not mean to shock.
And please, just call me Doc.
That's okay, Mr. um
I mean, Doc. [chuckles]
I [sighs]
You told me to reach out when I wanted
to go to the next level with my art.
The magic you can see
is worth more than any prize,
'cause what you got within you
can truly open people's eyes.
But you gotta believe
in yourself, and your art,
for the world can see the magic
in your heart.
