Sequence[edit]

Every episode has the following sequence:

1. Helps a child with something they can make out of

2. Shape dance and guessing game

3. Minute make it time

4. Colour Kids

5. Big surprise

6. Time to go

At the start of every show, Mister Maker uses various objects to make a Makermobile. He shrinks himself, then the episode starts. Tocky, the cuckoo clock gives Mister Maker a "Mini maker message", which is a child who needs help from Mister Maker. The child tells Mister Maker if he would like to do something or make something out of old things. This inspired him to make something related to them. He collects the required things from the Doodle drawers and make it. When Mister Maker couldn't find what he needs, he honks the horn, summoning Scraps, who gives him what he wants. After they make it, Mister Maker tells us "it's brilliant being out and about in the Makermobile. There's always so much to see and do." Then he hears a noise, then the shapes fly out and they do a silly song and dance, followed by a randomly selected shape (circle, triangle, square or rectangle) to form a picture or to find how many (particular shape) are there. Tocky then appears on the Makervideophone for Minute Make Time and Mister Maker will go to a place where he can make something in a minute, usually completing it just before the timer stops. Then the 'colour kids' will ask from the videophone to Mister Maker to guess what they would make with their 'colour costumes'. It is followed by 'A Big Surprise', where Mister Maker sees some kids that weren't expecting him, then the kids tell Mister Maker what they would like to do, then Mister Maker tells the kids what they will use to make, and that will give him an idea on what to make next. In the middle of making it, he tells us why not make a (insert thing that is related to what the Mini Makers are making here). The show then ends with Tocky telling Mister Maker to go and then showing Mister Maker putting the Makermobile back into the art box.
