Night Time Scratch is the seventh episode of Bob the Builder: Ready, Steady, Build!.


Scratch is so excited about today's job, installing the floodlights at the football ground, that he has hardly slept a wink the night before. During the build, Scratch is disappointed to find out that the floodlights will be tested after his bedtime. Frantic to be allowed to stay up, Scratch asks if he can have a nap during the day so he will be rested for that night. Bob agrees. Finally, Scratch does nap – but not for nearly long enough. And when he is entrusted with the job of getting a cable for the floodlights, he falls asleep on the way! He realizes how important having enough sleep is and after being impressed at seeing the floodlights being tested, it's home – and straight to bed!



  • This is the first time Scratch was seen sleeping.
  • This episode was paired with High Tide For Lofty when it first premiered in the US.
