Hello.

(SNORES)

Hmm.

Huh?

Look!

(LAUGHS) Yeah!

Hmm.

Oh, oh!

(GASPS) Huh?

Look!

Ah!

I'm Sally.

And I'm Possum.

BOTH: Hello.

Oh!

Oh.

Yeah. Oh, wow. Yeah.

Oh. Hmm.

Hmm.

Hmm. Mmm.

Huh? Huh?

Hmm.

Hmm.

Oh, hello, everyone!

Did you see who flashed my doorbell?

Hmm. Who was it?

There's nobody out here.

Hmm. It must have been Sally.

Oh, well.

(GRUNTS)

Yep.

(GRUNTS)

(YAWNS)

Huh? (GASPS)

Look!

Huh?

Oh...

But... Huh?

Did you see that?

That possum looked just like me!

But wait -

I can't be here and there

at the same time.

I think I must be dreaming.

I better go get Sally.

Whoa.

Huh?

Huh. Hmm.

Hmm.

Ooh! Oh, hello, everyone.

Possum's here.

He'll come straight in.

Hmm.

Hmm. Hmm. Huh?

Oh. He usually comes in by himself.

It must be someone else.

I'll go see.

Huh.

Hmm.

Possum, what are you doing?

Oh, come in. Sit down, Sally.

Come sit down.

What's the matter, Possum?

Sally, were you outside at all?

No, I've been in here

brushing my hair.

Hmm.

Did you press my doorbell?

No. I haven't been outside at all.

I've been in here the whole time.

I'm sure I saw

the doorbell light flashing,

but when I opened the door,

there was no-one there.

I thought it would be you.

But now I'm very confused.

Well, what are you confused about,

Possum?

Well, I opened the door and looked

around, there was nobody there.

But in the garden next to the gate,

I saw a strange shape.

(GASPS) Oh!

It looked like a possum.

Really?

It was a bit hard to see, though.

That shape. Was it a scary shape?

(LAUGHS)

No, Sally.

I can't be scared of a possum.

(LAUGHS)

(LAUGHS) No.

Hmm.

Maybe I was dreaming?

Oh, yes, I think

you could have been dreaming.

Yes.

Hmm.

I need to brush my hair.

Hmm. Oh! Huh?

(LAUGHS)

Oh, hello!

(LAUGHS)

Possum, would you like to look

in the mirror?

Oh.

Yeah.

Let's swap.

Ooh! (LAUGHS)

Right. Oh!

Ooh.

(LAUGHS)

The light is being reflected

into the mirror

and that's why you can see yourself.

(GASPS)

Look, Sally!

I can see the back of my head.

Yes. It's the reflection.

The mirrors are reflecting

off each other

and that's why you can see

the back of your head.

Sally, look at this.

OK.

(LAUGHS)

Hello!

Hi!

Hello. (LAUGHS)

Doodle-oodle-oodle-ooh!

(BOTH LAUGH)

That's funny.

Neep-noop-neep-noop.

(BOTH LAUGH)

Oh, Sally. I'm going to try and

trick my reflection.

Oh, OK.

Right.

Hup, hup, hup!

Ooh.

Oh.

I'm going to try again.

Hmm-mmm... Hup, hup!

Oh!

(LAUGHS)

Possum, the reflection is you.

It's going to do everything you do.

You can't be faster than it.

Remember, when we talked about

shadows?

You can never outrun

your shadow, can you?

It's always there.

Oh, that's right! I do remember!

I remember learning about shadows

and I did like learning about them.

And now I like learning about

light and reflections.

I can remember seeing myself

in a puddle once.

That's right!

Water or other things that are shiny,

can reflect light

just like a mirror does.

Oh!

Why don't we watch some children

learning about reflections

and mirrors?

Yeah, let's watch.

(UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYS)

Oh, that was great!

That WAS great!

Sally, mirrors are so much fun.

Oh, yes.

I really enjoyed learning more

about different mirrors.

I'm going to go outside

and practice my soccer,

but I'll be thinking about

mirrors too.

OK, you can go.

Great!

(LAUGHS)

See you later!

(CHUCKLES)

(LAUGHS) Right!

Oh, bye! (LAUGHS)

Ha-ha! Oh! Right.

(LAUGHS)

Oh. I'm going to practise

playing soccer.

I'm going to use the door as a goal.

But I can't kick it too hard -

I might break my door.

I don't want Amanda to have to

come and to fix it again.

(LAUGHS) Watching?

Huh?

Oh.

How did that come back?

I didn't kick it that hard.

Hmm, let's try again.

Hup.

Ah.

Huh?

(BOTH GASP)

Huh?

Huh?

(BOTH GASP)

Who put that mirror there?

Let's try with my left foot.

Oh, this is great! (LAUGHS)

This is great!

It's so much fun

kicking it back and forth!

(LAUGHS)

Yeah! Oh, this is great.

Sally, did you put that mirror here?

No.

Hmm.

Well, I've been kicking the soccer

ball and it keeps coming back.

Watch.

OK, I'll watch.

Huh? Huh?!

It's gone.

Yes, well, I saw you kick the ball,

but there's no mirror anywhere.

Huh! Oh, well.

There must be another possum.

Let's have a look.

Hmm.

Hi!

Hello!

Hey!

This is my cousin. His name is Poss.

Yeah!

What are you doing here, Poss?

Well, I happened to be walking past

and I saw your very big tree

and I wanted to have a look.

It's such a great tree.

But then I saw that Sally

was walking past

and I didn't want her to think

that I was going to live here too,

so I hid.

Oh, you're more than welcome to

stay, Poss.

Thank you, cousin,

but I'm not like you.

At night-time,

I like to go on adventures.

I like to see different things.

But thank you, anyway. It's so good

to see you so happy.

Hey, would you like to come in

and see my tree?

Yeah, for sure!

Come on! In you go.

(BOTH LAUGH)

Whoa!

Ohh!

(LAUGHS)

It's great, isn't it?

Wow! It's great! Look at it!

It's fantastic!

Look over there!

Yeah! Oh, look at the kangaroos.

Yeah, you're right! I can see them.

Boing, boing, boing.

Yeah.

Let's go down.

OK.

Oh.

(LAUGHS)

That was great!

Your tree is fantastic.

It's so nice! Thanks for showing me.

You're welcome.

Well, I've got to go now.

OK, let's go.

OK.

(BOTH LAUGH)

Bye.

Bye.

Yeah!

Poss, Poss... No, no, no.

What?

Come here, come here.

I'll show you.

Oh, I see. OK, thanks! Bye.

Bye!

Bye!

Sally, Sally, Sally.

What?

Did you see who that was?

No.

And I haven't put a mirror

out there either.

You're the only one out here.

I haven't seen anyone else.

No, no, that was my cousin Poss.

Oh, Possum. (LAUGHS)

You are really funny.

Ah, well.

Anyway, Sally, I've learnt so much

about mirrors today.

It's been great!

Oh, yes, you have learnt so much.

Why don't we watch some children

telling us some things

about mirrors?

Yeah, let's watch!

In a mirror, you can look at yourself

and brush your hair.

In a mirror,

sometimes you get a surprise

because the mirror

does exactly what you do.

I like mirrors.

I like to look at my face,

because it looks good.

Mirrors come in all different sizes.

You can have big ones, small ones

or really big ones.

I love small mirrors because I can

see myself and brush my hair.

During the day,

if the sun hits a mirror,

it can reflect off

in all different directions.

When it's dark, you can't see

yourself in a mirror.

You need a light source

so you can see.

I love mirrors because I love to

put my lipstick on,

fix my hair and make myself

look good.

When you're in the car,

you can look at the side mirrors.

They're important

because you need to make sure

that all the other cars have

gone past before you change lanes.

Also, at night,

you can use the rear vision mirror

to check that there are

no lights on in the car,

so you don't have an accident.

Oh, that was great!

Oh, yes.

Those children know so much about

mirrors. That was awesome.

Oh, yes, they were

very knowledgeable.

But you are too now, Possum.

You know lots about mirrors,

don't you?

Yeah!

Are you ready to go inside and eat?

Yes, but make sure that it's real

food and not a reflection.

(BOTH LAUGH)

You are funny.

Well, our time is up.

Thanks for watching.

See you next time.

Bye!

Bye!

Come on.

Possum sees double

Reflections are remarkable. Possum enjoys learning about mirrors. But what is going on in the yard? Is this a reflection too?
