The Alarm System is the eighth episode of the 2011 series of Sooty.


When Richard becomes concerned about security on the Park, it’s Sooty Security Services to the rescue. With a trip-wires and traps set, Sooty’s caravan has never been safer. But when the police arrive at the Park, could it be Richard who is caught red-handed?



  • Officer Shuttleworth does not carry the basic equipment required for a police officer such as handcuffs and a radio.
  • When Officer Shuttleworth asks about the money Richard's carrying, there is four pound coins, but later when they count the money there is seven pound coins.
  • £4 is not a lot of money.
  • Richard would've taken more then £9 if they were charging £1 a turn.
  • At the end when Officer Shuttleworth apprehends Richard, he comments on how much money he's got, but the money is in a piggy bank so how does he know how much money is inside?
  • After Sooty removes the paper from the wall while he was trying to stop the water, how does the water stop?
  • When we see Richard watching himself on the television, the Richard on the set is looking at a blank screen.
  • When Sweep demonstrates how to get about the kitchen without setting off the alarm, there are a few points when we see him touch the strings and the alarm does not go off.
