Sooty's Space Rocket is the fourth episode of the second series of Sooty.


Sooty has high ambitions indeed. He is building his very own space rocket and aims to be the very first teddy bear to set foot on Mars. However, his dreams of reaching the red planet are brought to an abrupt halt when he crash lands in Mr Slater's mobile toilet. Suddenly it looks like all his hopes and aspirations are destined for one place only - down the pan!



  • Parts of this episode are adapted from an old Harry Corbett episode "Sooty's Space Ship".
  • Sooty, Sweep and Soo are wearing the same space suits they wore in the Sooty in Space stage show of 2009.
  • The man who can be seen using the portable toilet is actually Sooty's propman Peter Moran who has worked with Sooty since Matthew Corbett's era.


  • Just before Soo says "Take us down, Captain Sooty", you can briefly see Sooty's puppeteer behind Richard's arm.
