Episode Summary

EDIT
Noisy/Quiet: Production & Processing of Sound
AIRED:
A sixty-second tease introduces the cast and previews some of their scientific adventures. This is followed by a four-minute film showing the recording of the 3-2-1 Contact theme. (See Quotes.) While Lisa and Marc talk on a steel-can telephone of the youth, Trini tries to fool them with "Stan the Robot." But nobody is fooled, thanks to a device that maps out sound patterns. Marc visits Bell Laboratories to see a computer that is programmed to speak.

ANIMATIONS: Telephones; human voice.

THE BLOODHOUND GANG: "The Case of the Educated Pig," a one-shot mystery surrounding a pig that can supposedly answer multiple-choice questions.moreless

      • Marc: (on phone) Lisa! You were in the middle of the story. So then what happened?!
        Trini: (imitates operator) I'm sorry. Your party has gone off the fishing line!
        (she and Lisa laugh)

      • Contrary to other Web pages, these are the actual lyrics to the "3-2-1 Contact Theme":


        Three, two, one,

        Contact

        Is the secret

        Is the moment

        When everything happens


        Contact

        Is the answer

        Is the reason

        Why everything happens

        Contact

        Let's make contact!

        Three, two, one,

        Contact!

    • NOTES (3)

      • This was the only Season 1 episode ever to air on Noggin during that network's salad days. According to the founder of squareonetv.org, these scenes were removed from the episode for Noggin rebroadcasts:
        (1) 60-second series promotion
        (2) CTW "Snake" ID (for description of the ID, click here)
        (3) The tease, in which Trini leads "Stan the Robot" into the workshop
        (4) Human voice animation
        (5) At the end of the program, the "Noisy/Quiet" animation was cleverly shaved and the surrounding bits sealed together

      • "The Bloodhound Gang" installment for this program was slated to be "The Case of the One-Ton Jewel," which does not appear until the episode called Hot/Cold: Heat and Work.

      • This program features a glimpse of an animated sequence that will not be exposed in its entirety until Communication with Other Species.
