Scoop Has Some Fun is the ninth episode of the third season.
While Scoop is on break from a job, Spud tries to persuade him to help him play some tricks. At first, it seems fun until Spud suggests they scare Lofty, which Scoop turns down, saying Lofty is really scared of Spud. While Scoop goes back to work, Spud goes off to find Lofty himself. Unfortunately, he scares Lofty so much that Lofty falls on his side. After Lofty is rescued by Bob, Scoop, and Spud (who went for help and admits what he did), Bob and the team get back to work, and Scoop says that Spud never thinks about how his actions affect others, inspiring Bob to give Spud a dose of his own medicine.
When Muck shouts; 'Okay, let's go!" Wendy is not wearing her builder's hat and Lofty has his hook. But in the next shot, Wendy is wearing her hat and Lofty's hook has become a grabber. However, it changes back to his hook when Muck and Lofty arrive at the junction.
Oddly, Lofty was not seen at the end of the episode with the other machines.
(Bob climbs up on Scoop while Spud gets in Scoop's front digger. Scoop races for Lofty's rescue. Spud, Bob,and Scoop have found Lofty on his side.)
Bob: Lofty! Don't worry. We'll get you right side up soon.
Lofty: Oh, I, hope so.
Bob: (to Spud and Scoop) Okay. All together now (Bob, Spud, and Scoop struggle to get Lofty up untilthey get him back on his wheels.) They you are, Lofty. Are you alright?
Lofty: I think so, yeah. Thanks, Bob. Thanks, Scoop.
Bob: Better thank Spud. He was the one who came for help.
Spud: (nervously) Uh, well, it's my fault really, Bob. I scared Lofty and that's why he got stuck.
