    Simon's Fifth Grade 'Toon Machine!
    Thumper enters the top of an elegant elevator and descends to the first floor. Then, he is pushed by a lilting lever onto a bustling belt conveyor where he moves along until a rollicking robotic arm picks him up, swings him around onto another burping belt conveyor. Next, Thumper moves onto a running roller conveyor where he moves into the grasp of a neurotic pnematic hand that picks him up and places him onto a dynamic dancing table as our Grand Finale! Go, Thumper, Go! LEGO POWER!
