Episode Summary

EDIT
Trucks
When Mouse gets a little lesson in where her breakfast comes from, we launch into a lesson about trucks - special vehicles that are associated with just about anything that be delivered and work in all sorts of conditions from snow to sun. Back in older times, animals such as horses were used to pull carts carrying deliveries, but today trucks can be built quickly and easily to handle this work. We learn that in the early days, truck drivers generally didn't leave the city limits because the road conditions were terrible and they even had to watch out for ditches, as opposed to today's complex and generally well-maintained network of roads and highways. Today's trucks are also a lot bigger than the older trucks, oftentimes enjoyable to drive, perhaps while wearing a suit and tie. We go inside a factory to see the making of a truck and find out that the process actually only takes a few hours because the parts are already fully made and ready to go when they reach the assembly line. The truck is built on a device called a chassis, with things like the brakes and engines installed first and the truck getting a coat of paint. Installing the engine isn't an easy job - it takes at least five people to guide it into position and it's very heavy. After everything is finished on the chassis, a cap is created and joined together with the chassis. Finally, the trucks are installed with lights, tested using rollers and then they're ready to go.moreless
