Stop-motion preschool programme about the adventures of four inquisitive Twirlywoos. The Twirlywoos watch a couple rehearsing a ballroom dance, accompanied by a piano player. He starts off playing slowly and speeds up towards the end of the dance. The Twirlywoos watch this with interest, and when the pianist takes a break, they investigate the piano. They run and jump on the keys, the tune gets faster and faster, and the dancers try frantically to keep up. The Hooter ends the performance and the dancers fall in an exhausted heap on the floor! The Twirlywoos come back to the boat to find the Twirlywoo Screen. Dots appear, and the Twirlywoos splat them as quickly as they can. Eventually the whole Twirlywoo Screen is covered in brightly coloured splats!
