Alphablocks (partially found web-exclusive scenes of Cbeebies educational series episodes; 2010-13)
Alphablocks is a children's show which originally aired on Cbeebies, a channel for pre-schoolers. The show centers around 26 anthropomorphic blocks that all represent the letters of the English alphabet, as they go around spelling words, making sounds and going on adventures. Each of the Alphablocks have a unique design and personality.
91 original episodes were produced from January 25th, 2010 to July 2nd, 2013, followed by four 10-20 minute specials that aired throughout October 2021, and the four crossover episodes with successor Numberblocks that aired in February 2022.
While all of these episodes are available to watch on BBC iPlayer and YouTube, there once used to be an Alphablocks flash game that came out at the same time as the show itself, in 2010, which had 33 of the 91 original episodes turn into interactable versions where you drag certain Alphablocks and create words. After creating a word, a scene will play which shows the word in action. What makes the flash game stand out from the show, is that in all of the interactable episodes, there are some exclusive scenes for certain words that don't appear in the TV versions.
While the game was available, anyone who played it could access these exclusive scenes. However, the game was taken down in October 2017 due to it being outdated to be on the website any longer. Because of this, only around six of the 91 exclusive game scenes across the 33 interactable episodes had ever surfaced on the internet, all available on YouTube, while the rest were considered lost.
On the 20th of October 2022, a video showcasing a playthrough of the flash game and both of the exclusive scenes from the Series 1 episode 'Bus' was found on Dailymotion, increasing the number of found scenes to eight. The "cap" scene from Series 1's "Space" and the "dug" scene from Series 2's "Up" was also found just 2 days later, further increasing the total to ten.
NOTE 1: The reason why some episode numbers are skipped is because the episodes themselves are not interactive in the flash game, therefore they are the exact same as the TV versions and do not have exclusive scenes.
NOTE 2: Series 4 and the 2021-22 special episodes are not included in this list. Series 4 is because none of the episodes are interactable in the flash game, while the specials are because they didn't exist at the time the flash game was up.
