The New Building is the second episode of the second series of Sooty.


It is the ceremonial grand opening of Mr Slater's new toilet block, but chaos looms when it becomes apparent that builders Sooty and Sweep have forgotten to install the vital component - a toilet! Can they get it fitted in time, or will Richard's career end up round the bend?



  • Writer Wink Taylor can be seen as the maintenance man who jumps into the bin, Sweep's puppeteer Brian Sandford can be seen spilling some popcorn whilst dodging the runaway toilet and Soo's voice artist Brenda Longman can be seen attending the grand opening of the new toilet.


  • Richard could have just lifted the brick off of his tie as it had only just been laid and would not have set yet.
  • Surely Richard has other clothes.
  • Why would the toliet end up on the bumper cars if it was meant to be making a beeline for the new toliet block?
