Driving Lesson is an episode of Sooty & Co.

Plot

Sooty has lost his campervan keys and is looking all over for them. Scampi begins to annoy him, so Sooty turns him into plastacine models.

Sweep is feeling sad because he is not allowed to drive the camper van. Matthew decides to find someone who can give Sweep some driving lessons. After talking to ther rather strange driving instructor, Sweep takes control of a small mini car, and he eventually crashes it into a lake.

Matthew is watching all this and is getting a good laugh out of it all, claiming that he is a natural born driver. He demonstrates his skills around the driving course and he ends up crashing into the instructor's mini. The Instructor finally forgets to stay calm and chases Matthew all around the farm yard while Sooty and the gang laugh hysterically at them.

Characters

Goofs

  • It is unfair to say that everything Sweep touches either breaks or goes wrong; it has not always happened before or after this episode.
  • When Sweep falls down the stairs, he rolls over some of the same bits twice.
  • At one point, Sooty removes his work coat even though he and Soo have not yet finished their stock taking on the salt pots.
