Cleaning Outnow playing
1. Cleaning Out
 
A house which can fight back against burglars; what a revolutionary idea! It’s Dr Contraptus’ latest brainwave. And he can’t wait to try out all his little traps. Who could play the burglar? Off the top of our heads… how about Basil? Sure, there's a fair chance it might hurt. But serving the world of science is a pleasure, right? So do your duty, disciple!...
Telekinesis
2. Telekinesis
 
It would be great to be able to move objects without touching them, using sheer willpower! Somebody should invent a helmet to make that possible ! And that’s what the most famous and brilliant genius, Leonard, does, thanks to his highly-developed brain power. Now it just needs to be tested. Basiiiiiiiil, my dear disciiiiiiiple! I need you!...
Up, Up And Away!
3. Up, Up And Away!
 
Dr Contraptus is sick of having to wake his disciple up every morning. There are thirty-four steps up to his bedroom, after all. What a waste of time and energy ! What he needs is a machine. A machine conceived by his brilliant mind. And then, he’ll need somebody to test it…. Baaasiiiiiil!...
Shall We Dance
4. Shall We Dance
 
Even geniuses fall in love. The proof is that Dr Contraptus has a crush on his neighbor. His timing couldn't be better; there's a dance on that night. He just needs to find somebody to jive with and practice the tango and the waltz. Basil will have to help out, whether he likes it or not. But how can Leonard force his disciple to dance? It’s time for another brilliant idea....
Super Duper
5. Super Duper
 
If anybody ever managed to get Basil the disciple to do some real work, we'd have to say that person was a pure genius. Well, you’ll never believe it, but today, Basil the disciple has his mind set on just one thing and that is: work. Is it a miracle ? Oh no, it’s the invention of a totally human mind. So, whose brilliant mind is that ? Well, of course, it’s Dr Contraptus’ once again!...
Cut It Short
6. Cut It Short
 
A genius always thinks of others. He’s always ready to lend a helping hand. Dr Contraptus’ neighbor, for example, can no longer mow his lawn because his back is giving him so much trouble. No problem, Dr Contraptus decides to invent him a new lawnmower of his own design. Sure, there are still a few kinks which need ironing out, but then it will be perfect. Right, Basil?...
At Your Service
7. At Your Service
 
What's a butler bot? It’s a robot the great Leonard has invented. It can polish, scrub and clean everything in the house from top to bottom. Isn’t that fantastic ? The most tiring thing for Basil will be giving it orders. Except that there's a problem: the butler bot keeps breaking things. Nothing is safe. It’s like a tornado wreaking havoc through the whole house... from top to bottom....
Energetic
8. Energetic
 
If Dr Contraptus ever managed to talk his disciple to into alphabetizing the thousands of books in his library, we would be totally impressed. And what if Basil cleaned the whole house from top to bottom? And if he wanted to work all the time? That would be quite suspicious… A sign of genius and inventiveness!...
Fed Up
9. Fed Up
 
Everybody knows that Basil’s one pleasure in life is to serve the world of science. Except this time, it’s the world of science which is going to serve him! It’s all thanks to Dr Contraptus’ latest find. He’s come up with a robot programmed to feed him so that he has his hands free to keep working. And what does his disciple think of this? It certainly gives him food for thought. And that’s that....
Iron Raiders
10. Iron Raiders
 
Anybody can lose a key, but inventing a metal detector to find it again is a rare skill. You need Dr Contraptus for that. He even has the bright idea of building in a powerful magnet. It attracts all kinds of things! The most surprising metal objects, but no keys! Keep looking, Basil....
Only The Truth
11. Only The Truth
 
What an amazing invention his Brainy Greatness, Dr Contraptus has come up with now! It will put paid to all cheats, liars and deceivers. He's made a lie detector!

The Farce Be With You
12. The Farce Be With You
 
Dr Contraptus has twenty-four hours to come up with a new toy for the Overlord’s son. What a nightmare!If he can’t pull it off, his genius status will be revoked. So he must get to work!

Yes, ALL of them!...
Fearless Firefighters
13. Fearless Firefighters
 
In case of fire, it’s true that a bucket of water is a tried and tested solution, but wouldn’t it be nice to modernize things a little ? Dr Contraptus’ untiring mind comes up with an extraordinary machine: a truck ! with a tank on the back ! and a long ladder! and a cradle! Quick, time to test this little gem. Matilda will yell ‘Fire, fire !’ As for Basil... He can play the wet blanket...
Walking Music
14. Walking Music
 
An MP3 player isn’t much to write home about nowadays. But did you know it took all kinds of research and trial runs to get it on the market ? The forerunner of our first walkman might surprise you. It certainly surprised Basil. And we might even say he was the force behind it. Even if it was Dr Contraptus’ idea in the first place. Of course....
Hairy Business
15. Hairy Business
 
A new day has dawned. Full of promise. Leonard is being nice to Basil. This worries him. Has he had another brainwave ? Looks like it. He’s invented the Tweeze-o-matic ! Phew, Basil isn’t hairy. But no problem, with a little help from Leonard’s Growhair, Basil soon resembles a Yeti. Keep the faith, disciple. You’re serving the world of science ! All of womankind will thank you for it....
Fly Like A Stone
16. Fly Like A Stone
 
Man has always dreamed of flying! That sounds like a decent challenge for Leonard’s immeasurable genius. He rises to it immediately. All he needs is a pair of wings, and up, up and away ! Basil can now fly like a bird, high in the sky. What does he mean, he doesn’t want to ? Now, now, Basil the disciple, it’s about time you flew the nest!...
No Need For Speed
17. No Need For Speed
 
Enough accidents already! From now on, all handcart drivers better watch their step ! If they break the 15mph speed limit, they’ll be caught on speed camera and fined. Well, that is if the great Leonard’s speed camera actually works. Only one way to find out... but can Basil break the speed limit… and live to tell the tale?...
Muscles For Sale

Face-o-matic
19. Face-o-matic
 
Dr Contraptus is not happy with the portraits which have been made of him. None of them show any trace of his genius. They don’t like one bit like him ! Well, if you want a job done properly, you’d better do it yourself. He decides to make a picture-generating machine... No sooner said than done. Now he just needs to test it. Basil, the world of science needs you....
Mosquito Invasion
20. Mosquito Invasion
 
When swarms of mosquitoes hit town, who you gonna call ? The local genius, of course ! And how will he get rid of them ? By moving them elsewhere ; it's as simple as that. Err, except it’s not, actually. How are your bites, by the way, Basil? Dr Contraptus, let’s hope this time, you haven’t bitten off more than you can chew!...
Wake Up Call
21. Wake Up Call
 
A disciple should always be fresh as a daisy, and therefore needs twelve full hours of sleep. A genius like Leonard can't afford to waste crazy amounts of time getting him out of bed in the morning. They should draw up a contract! Now that's done, it just has to be signed and sealed....
Repulso-all
22. Repulso-all
 
Matilda has put her foot down. She refuses to cook in a room full of flies. Dr Contraptus, we need a fly-repellent ! Let’s test it. The first one repels everybody. Whereas the second attracts all the local women like flies. And the third ? It’s the beginning of a beautiful friendship....
Shut The Shutters
23. Shut The Shutters
 
Some inventions require absolute darkness. How can that be arranged ? Dr Contraptus could always ask Basil to nail some boards over the windows. Then take them down again. Then nail them back up. No, that’s no good ! It’s much too slow ! The world of science doesn’t hang about. Viewers, pay heed: you are about to witness the birth of automatic blinds!...
Vacuum-o-matic
24. Vacuum-o-matic
 
Spreading soot around him and walking in it: for once, Basil’s task amuses him. And how about lying face down in a wheelbarrow with a pipe in your mouth to suck the soot up, is that fun too, Basil? You got it, Dr Contraptus is inventing the vacuum... and he's gonna take your breath away. Hold on in there, Basil....
Fetch The Ball
25. Fetch The Ball
 
The racket is a great invention. But what’s it for ? Draining spaghetti ? No. Ask Matilda. Flying ? No. Basil can tell you all about that. Dr Contraptus' mind is in a rut... Until an apple comes along and bounces off the racket… hey, let’s call this raquetapple! No, wait! Raquetball. Wowee!...
Treasure Hunt
26. Treasure Hunt
 
One way to get to a treasure hidden under a huge rock is to use a pick. But Basil isn’t strong enough. What they need is a sturdy, handy little machine which could drill through the rock no problem... isn't that a brilliant idea? Time to get your hands dirty, Leonard! You know the drill....
Door-o-matic
27. Door-o-matic
 
A genius owes it to himself to come up with at least one invention per day. So what will yours be today, Dr Contraptus? How about the automatic door?

Sure is, especially at dinner time ! Thanks a bunch, Mr. Genius....
Pizza-o-matic
30. Pizza-o-matic
 
When the world of science calls on your creative powers, you hardly have time for snack breaks. Food you could eat without a knife and fork would help. Then you could eat it on the move. Why not a pastry plate covered with delicious ingredients and cooked in the oven? That would make a change from spaghetti. We could call it the Pizza Leonarda. It would be so nice....
Good Puppy
31. Good Puppy
 
A good dog is an obedient dog. A good master is a master with authority. But Dr Contraptus’ neighbor seems to have neither. Our brilliant friend decides to help him out by writing a dog-training manual. If somebody would just bring him the ferocious animal, he could start his tests. Heel, Basil!...
TV Me
32. TV Me
 
Great ! Leonard has gone away for a couple of days. Matilda and Basil will be able to chill out now. Incidentally, Leonard has just invented a monster. It's a robot with a screen on its head. It will help Leonard keep giving out orders while he's away. Of course, he intends to use it to the full. Use and and abuse it, we could say. Matilda and Basil better get to work!...
Bad Mouth
33. Bad Mouth
 
Basil is upset, angry and frustrated. He’s had enough of Dr Contraptus thinking he's lame. To prove him wrong, he invents a machine which throws the entire household into disarray. It's the Basilophone. Huh?! It’s a device which insults anybody it runs into. It’s 100% effective ! See what you can do, Basil, when you put your mind to it!...
Crow Croa
34. Crow Croa
 
Let’s be clear about this : if Leonard and Basil want food in their plates, they’re gonna have to help the neighbor protect his cornfields from the birds. Matilda insists ! OK!

Make A Wish
35. Make A Wish
 
Imagine, you’re just buffing up a silver tea-pot, and poof ! Out pops a genie! He grants you three wishes. What would you ask for? Well, you gotta think about it, don’t you ? Now imagine this happens to Basil. Do you reckon he’ll take the time to think about it? What an idiot!...
Kindergarten
36. Kindergarten
 
"Dr Contraptus is in the mood for a little invention. His disciple’s assistance is in-dis-pen-sable. What does Basil mean, he has to baby-sit his nephew ? There's no way! The kid can play by itself. It can shut up crying too! Basil wonders if his master couldn't put his characteristic genius to work and come up with a new toy or two to entertain him. But Basil’s the one who ends up testing them. Poor Basil! "...
Frozen Genius
37. Frozen Genius
 
No, I won’t have it ! Matilda refuses to throw out all the food which has just been delivered. Can you imagine throwing away six hundred pounds of fruit and vegetables ?

Genius On Wheels
38. Genius On Wheels
 
The Overlord’s guard has a problem. He has to carry all of the Overlord’s bags when he goes away, and there are tons of them! He needs to invent a system to help out.

I dunno, but I won’t pack it in until I find something!...
Falling Star
39. Falling Star
 
Dr Contraptus spots a new star in the sky. But then he loses sight of it. To get things right next time, he really needs to draw up a map of the sky. Who could he appoint with a mission so vital to the world of science? C’mon Basil, duty’s calling and the constellations are waiting for you. In fact, it's almost time for lift-off, and the countdown’s about to begin....
Beam Me Up, Basil!
40. Beam Me Up, Basil!
 
It’s another glorious day for the world of science ! Dr Contraptus has invented the Leoporter. What does it do ? You simply have to enter a destination and press the remote, and up, up and away! Off you fly! You can teleport yourself into the kitchen, the yard, the neighbors’ bathtub, the desert, the North Pole... So, who wants to try it out? Maybe Basil fancies a little trip?...
Invisible
41. Invisible
 
Has Leonard’s genius finally rubbed off on Basil? He has just invented something quite extraordinary. It’s an invisibility spray! Dr Contraptus would like to know what it’s made of. All he needs to do is find Basil. Because of course, he’s invisible now....
Nannybot
42. Nannybot
 
Basil is terrified of the storm. He can’t sleep. No problem, Dr Contraptus has just invented the Nannybot, a stainless steel nanny! She’s two meters high and full of authority and good breeding. She can change you, powder your butt, give you your bottle or your pacifier, pat you on the back: all with an iron hand. Yep, Nannybot is certainly worse than the storm!...
Party Town
43. Party Town
 
If you had to participate in the village fair, what would you do? Would you organize a game ? Or put on a show? Or bake a cake? That’s what people normally do to help a fair go well. But Dr Contraptus has a rather different view of how he should participate. It’s a very personal view of things… very one for all and all for me!...
Encyclopedius
44. Encyclopedius
 
Who is always rambling on about science and gets on everybody’s nerves? No, it’s not Dr Contraptus, but you're not far wrong. It's Encyclopedius, the robot he has created. Ah, if only he'd let Basil do it instead! He would have been called Thingmabob, and would have stuck his fingers in his nose. He would have had a sense of humor, you know?...
Bazilla
45. Bazilla
 
Let’s see if Dr Contraptus’ laser can help Basil grow taller. That would be pretty handy for cleaning the windows at the top of the house. Wow, it works really well ! A bit too well, actually. Basil's now a giant! What about his brain ? Did that grow too ? Nope, but his appetite did. Oh my goodness ! It’s crazy! And a little frightening, to tell the truth....
A Star Is Born
46. A Star Is Born
 
Why is Basil suddenly showing signs of talent in his sleep? To the extent that Dr Contraptus has started sending him off for naps in the middle of the day and everybody comes to watch once he’s dropped off? It's all because he's started reciting Shakespeare in his sleep! With passion and vigor ! Yes indeed, Basil the disciple is a sleeptalker!...
Gold Diggers
47. Gold Diggers
 
Drat and divination, the Overlord’s guard has come to collect taxes again, and Dr Contraptus is completely broke! Being a genius isn’t very lucrative. He needs to find gold! And to find it, he needs to look for it. To look for it, he needs to invent a robot which loves gold. The only thing is that this one loves it a little too much... Stop, thief!...
Where Is Matilda?
48. Where Is Matilda?
 
It’s over ! That’s it ! I’ve had enough! There's not a red cent left in this house, and Matilda has had it! Hmph, so what ! Basil and Leonard can manage fine without her. Cooking spaghetti can’t be that hard… it’s as easy as pie… mere child’s play… Arrrrrgggh! Matiiiiiiildaaaaa! Come back!!!!!...
Basil's Worst Friend
49. Basil's Worst Friend
 
A dog is man’s best friend, they say. And Basil could really use a friend. Since if you want a job done, you’d better do it yourself, he makes a robot dog and to top it off, gives it the power of speech. Look at the two of them playing together ! Err… excuse me, but the dog supposed to be throwing the stick for Basil?...
Nanny 101
50. Nanny 101
 
Matilda’s cousin is coming over with her baby. Leonard and Basil agree to look after it. They just need a little practice. Dr Contraptus makes a very realistic robot baby and it… totally wears them out. As for the real baby, once he arrives, he’s amazingly advanced for his age. And he rocks !...
Who is there?
51. Who is there?
 
Mama mia ! The speakophone Dr Contraptus has just invented is quite brilliant ! He sets it up outside the house and if it recognizes the voice of his visitor: cling ! The door opens automatically. If not, blam ! It punches them in the face! It's a good way to get rid of unwanted guests! Does it work when you have a cold, you say? Err… not so sure about that....
Time Out
52. Time Out
 
Everyone loves the clock which can stop time for twenty-two seconds. Matilda, Basil and Roland are all addicted to it. When Dr Contraptus takes it out and dusts it down, their eyes shine with envy.

Rock Band
53. Rock Band

Where's My Idea?
54. Where's My Idea?
 
Dr Contraptus just can’t remember the brilliant idea he had yesterday. The world's greatest genius therefore starts feeling down. Basil is pretty worried. No matter what he does, he can’t cheer him up. He needs to go back in time. Well, why not suggest it, and see if Mr. Genius’ idea was as good as that !...
Looking For Clues
55. Looking For Clues
 
Who has stolen Dr Contraptus’ invention blueprints ? This calls for an investigation. Bring in the suspects and let’s check for motives ! Was it Basil ? No inventions means no work for him : he could sleep all day instead ! Was it Matilda ? No inventions means no housework for her. Well, how about Leonard? No ; that's dumb. It can’t be Leonard. Or maybe it’s not as dumb as it sounds…...
Back To School
56. Back To School
 
The village school mistress is sick. Matilda has agreed to look after four kids for the day. It’s the perfect opportunity for Dr Contraptus to test his robot school mistress !

Dream Factory
57. Dream Factory
 
Anything can happen ! Basil gets up without a quibble, is in a great mooed and whistles while he works. Dr Contraptus is surprised. And even jealous. Maybe a little insight into his dreams would help explain the mystery. All he needs is a helmet and a few electrodes: now let’s see… Oh, what a shock! In his dreams, Basil is the Genius and Leonard is his disciple! It's un-bear-able!...
www.contruptus.tv
58. www.contruptus.tv
 
Dr Contraptus is addicted ! What to ? Video games. Basil can find another way to spend his time now. It's about time he struck out on his own! Basil the disciple takes his master at his word and sets up a business which brings in a fair amount of money. It’s an on-line store. When Dr Contraptus finally looks up from his game… let's just say he can be pretty mean when he's jealous!...
Disciple.web
59. Disciple.web
 
Dr Contraptus’ computer has stopped working. Off you go, Basil! Leonard teleports his disciple into the system to repair it! It’s funny to see him running around behind the computer screen. Bing ! Leonard gets an idea for a video game. Leonard has so much fun. Basil, a little less. But it makes both of them pretty hungry. Time for dinner ! Err… except Mr. Genius forgot to program a way of bringing Basil home......
Your Pants!
60. Your Pants!
 
Dr Contraptus is feeling very creative today. Not only has he invented tinned food, but also pants. While he’s at it, he invents belts, and to finish in style, the robot clothes rack. And for whose benefit are all these marvellous inventions ? For his own. As usual. Argh!...
Who's Your Genius?
61. Who's Your Genius?
 
Dr Contraptus has run out of ideas. So he decides to make a machine to generate them. It doesn’t really work. Maybe his brain has broken down? Not at all, the machine works wonderfully on Basil, who develops a sudden interest in quantum mechanics, among other things. How long will Leonard be able to stand it? We’re betting it’s not long at all....
Quizz Show
62. Quizz Show
 
Leonard’s neighbor claims he knows more than Mr. Genius himself. How dare he ! Leonard challenges him to a public dual of knowledge. The village folk will choose the winner. Dr Contraptus comes up with a set for the dual which looks like something of game shows on TV today (it has a contestant station complete with buzzers etc.). He dubs it the Leonardo Quizz. May the best man win!...
Dr Contraptor
63. Dr Contraptor
 
Dr Contraptus knows what’s what. He's aware he can’t live forever. And who will pick up the torch when he's gone? He invents a Leonator, a robot who looks just like him. Isn’t that fantastic ? Sure, except that the Leonator can't stand any competition. Who’s silly idea was it to make this monster ? A genius. Oh yeah. How fast can you run, Mr. Genius ?...
Professor Processor
64. Professor Processor
 
Leonard’s genius is never-ending ! His latest creation is the Professor Processor ! His clone! Now, he's the only person Mr. Genius will talk to. He’s so intelligent. But then the machine starts acting funny… It's as if it wants to take over. Do you have anything to say about that, Basil?...
All Cleaned Up
65. All Cleaned Up
 
Dr Contraptus has invented the self-repairing, universal chore bot. Isn’t that fantastic ? Now they will never have to bother with Matilda and her moods again. The robot can replace all their old machines: the dishwasher, the oven, the washing machine, the coffee maker… All of them ! And if it breaks down, it automatically repairs itself. Well, in theory. Now let’s see how it works in practice....
Count Basila
66. Count Basila
 
There’s something seriously wrong around here ! Basil and Matida have turned into blood-thirsty vampires desperate for tomato juice! Might Dr Contraptus have had a hand in this ? It could be that the vitamin cocktail he threw together to reinforce their immune systems at the start of the winter was a little strong. Quiiiick ! You better find an antidote, Mr. Genius! Basil and Matilda are coming! And they’re thirsty ! Very thirsty!...
Circus Robotus
67. Circus Robotus
 
Hear ye ! Hear ye ! Good people ! Basil's circus is coming to town tonight! Basil is delighted, all the seats are sold out already. It's nice to be an artist !

Err… except what do brilliant idiots invent ? Brilliant idiocies !!!!...
Amnesia
69. Amnesia
 
Have you heard the latest ? Dr Contraptus has had a bad fall. And the worst thing is, he’s lost his memory.

One tomato juice, please! Quick march, Leonard the disciple!...
Exiles
70. Exiles
 
Delivering pizza to all the village folk by catapult is another of Dr Contraptus' revolutionary ideas. It’s quick, sure, but not necessarily efficient. Unless your real aim is to get evicted. Well, at least this is the perfect opportunity to try camping. What do you reckon, Basil?...
Love Contraption
71. Love Contraption
 
Oh, it’s so sweet : Dr Contraptus has fallen in love with his pretty young neighbour! There’s just one small problem ; Mr. Genius is useless at the game of love. he gets all knotted up and stressed inside and has no idea how to tell her how he feels. Will Basil and Matilda’s advice help ? Say it with flowers, Leo!...
Re-evolution
72. Re-evolution
 
Dr Contraptus has just invented a machine which can speed up or slow down the development of any living creature. He can turn a fly into a grub or an egg into a chicken in less than a minute! What about Basil?... Err, Leonard must have gotten something wrong somewhere......
Wish Me Luck
73. Wish Me Luck
 
Basil is superstitious. He believes in the powers of black cats, broken mirrors, and spilt salt. It’s true, and he’s not the only one. So don’t poke too much fun at him, Dr Contraptus: not to be superstitious, but it might not bring you luck…...
Family Business
74. Family Business
 
Family BusinessGustave, Basil’s cousin, has changed so much ! He’s lost his interest in motorbikes. and in music. And he’s not half as insolent as he used to be !

The funny thing is that he can’t get enough of the herbal tea Dr Contraptus has been making for him every morning…...
Good Feeling
75. Good Feeling
 
Enough fighting already ! Everyone should be happy and get along ! Leonard invents the good mood diffuser. Ah! A pretty puff of pink smoke floats out into his workshop, and suddenly, master and disciple are getting along like a house on fire.

Wowee! That would be great!...
Unpredictable,right?
77. Unpredictable,right?
 
According to Dr Contraptus, there’s nobody quite so predictable as Basil. What’s more, he has invented a machine which proves it. But he presses the wrong button, and the machine sends out an alert that its master is about to fall into the well. Leonard locks himself up into his workshop and refuses to come out. He will not fall into the well ! He won’t fall in! He won’t… Splash!...
