Sweep Can't Sleep
Bob a Job is the first episode of the second seires of The Sooty Show.
Sooty and Sweep complete jobs for Matthew as part of their cub-scouts project.
- Matthew reads "The Times" newspaper which was quite popular to read in the 70s and 80s.
- Many of the pipes in the cellar are just drawings.
- When water first starts squirting from Sooty's hose, he jumps a little indicating a film cut.
- During the song, Soo appears on the cover of the well-know television guide "TV Times".
- This episode marks Brenda Longman's debut as Soo
- As Sooty's walking over to Sweep's bed with the first load of mess, the wall shakes slightly.
- While Sweep is putting objects into the bath, the set shakes.
- When Matthew says "I think I know who did...", the boom microphone is briefly visible on the top right-hand corner.
- In the shot of the bath overflowing, a shadow passes over the set.
- Just as Matthew goes to sit down with his cup of tea, the backdrop behind the window moves.
- In reality, it would have been impossible for water to spray from the toaster, the telephone and Sweep's head.
- Sooty's hose does not appear to be connected to anything.
