(rock'n'roll music plays)

In an animated frame, fast clip shows images of different animals: horses, llamas, pandas rolling down a ladder, a dog jumping for a treat, cats skateboarding, giraffes fighting one another and a snake lurking on the forest floor.

A son plays that says HUSTLE AROUND WITH THE
PONDERING PANDAS
TEACHING A DOG TRICKS
DISCOVERING ANSWERS
WE LOVE OUR CRAZY CRITTERS
WE LOOK TO FIND OUT
WHAT THEY DO
IT'S CREATURE MANIA
(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE)

The name of the show appears in yellow animal print letters on an orange background. It reads "Creature Mania."

Alfie walks in his bamboo tree house.

Alfie is in his twenties, with short curly brown hair and wears eggshell trousers and a black T-shirt with white rims.

He says HEY HEY CREATURE MANIACS,
WELCOME TO THE SHOW THAT'S ALL
ABOUT OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
AND COMPLETELY CREATURE CRAZY,
IT'S
CREATURE MANIA.
WE'LL BE EXPLORING SOME OF YOUR
FAVOURITE ANIMALS TODAY:
THE FLUFFY, THE FURRY, THE SLIMY
AND THE SCARY!
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE LOOK AT SOME ODDLY NAMED
CREATURES LIKE THE DRAGONFLY,
THE SEA CUCUMBER
AND THE PARROTFISH.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
CHECK OUT SOME SUPER CUTE
LION CUBS
AND WE MEET THE WORLD'S SMALLEST
GUARD DOG IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST: LET'S
KICK IT OFF WITH DR. KATRINA
AND HER YOUNG DOG TRAINERS,
TO SEE WHAT WE'RE GOING TO LEARN
TODAY IN...

A caption reads "Dog Tricks."

Doctor Katrina is in her thirties, with long straight brown hair and wears jeans and a hot pink Creature Mania T-shirt.

She sits on the grass with 4 brown and white dogs and says HI AND WELCOME TO DOG TRICKS.
I AM DR. KATRINA AND I AM HERE
WITH THE BEAUTIFUL WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
TO PLAY DEAD AND TRICK
IS GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
TRICK FIRST.
MEET TRICK, HE'S FIVE YEARS OLD.
HIS NICKNAMES ARE TRICKY
AND THE TRICKSTER.
TRICK IS AN AGILITY CHAMPION.
HE DID HIS FIRST STAGE SHOW
WHEN HE WAS JUST EIGHT WEEKS OLD
AND HE HAS NOT STOPPED
PERFORMING SINCE.
HIS FAVOURITE TRICKS INCLUDE
FETCHING THINGS TO PUT AWAY,
RUNNING IN CIRCLES
AND PLAYING DEAD.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HE'S DEFINITELY THE FUN LOVING
CRAZY ONE WHO RARELY SITS STILL.
HIS PET HATES: NOT BEING ALLOWED
TO RUN.
NAUGHTIEST DEED: HE'S ALWAYS
STIRRING UP THE OTHERS.
FAVOURITE TREAT: A SAUSAGE.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE TRICK:
NAUGHTY, ACTIVE AND PLAYFUL.
OKAY LET'S SEE TRICK
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Play Dead."

Katrina says PLAY DEAD IS A REALLY FUNNY
PARTY TRICK THAT
EVERYBODY LOVES.
TO START TEACHING THIS TRICK,
YOUR DOG NEEDS TO BE COMFORTABLE
TO LIE DOWN WHEN YOU ASK.
BANG.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE TODAY WITH ALEXANDER
AND INDIE.
ALEXANDER TELL ME ABOUT YOUR
BEAUTIFUL DOG.

Alex is around 10, with short wavy brown hair and wears gray shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Alex says INDIE IS A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
AND SHE LOVES HUGS AND FOOD.
SHE WANTS TO DRAWL
WHEN WE HAVE FOOD.

Katrina says WHAT ARE SOME
OF THE THINGS YOU DO WITH INDIE?

Alex says WE TAKE HER TO THE BEACH.

Katrina says YEP.

Alex says AND SHE DRAGS US,
DRAGS US AROUND
ON OUR BOOGIE BOARD.
WE ALSO TAKE HER TO THE PARK
AND SHE PLAYS CRICKET, SPORTS,
HANDBALL, TENNIS WITH ME.

Katrina says WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT
HAVING A DOG?

Alex says JUST SOMEONE TO PLAY WITH.

Katrina says HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE HER
IN MAYBE THREE WORDS?

Alex says CUTE, FUNNY, PLAYFUL.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO SOME TRICKS
WITH HER?

Alex says YEAH.

Katrina says I THINK SHE IS READY TO GO.

Alex points at Indie’s mouth and says UMM DROOL.

Katrina says TODAY ALEXANDER AND I
ARE GOING TO TEACH INDIE
HOW TO PLAY DEAD.
NOW THIS IS A PRETTY COOL TRICK
AND WE'RE GOING TO TEACH IT
IN A COUPLE OF STEPS.
NOW YOU SAID SHE KNOWS HOW TO
LAY DOWN OR DROP, YES.
SO WHAT I AM GOING TO GET YOU
TO DO,
THE FIRST STEP IS TO SIMPLY CALL
HER TO YOU, ASK HER TO SIT
AND DROP AND THEN GIVE HER
A TREAT.
FEELING GOOD ABOUT THAT?
YEAH SIT.

Alex says DROP.

Katrina says TREAT.
GOOD GIRL.
THAT WAS PERFECT.
THAT WAS STEP ONE.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP TWO,
WHICH IS TEACHING HER TO LIE
ON HER SIDE.
COOL.

Alex says COOL?

Katrina says EXCELLENT.

Alex says OH I JUST LOVE GOLDEN
RETRIEVERS.
INDIE IS SO HAPPY AND FLUFFY.
SHE IS SO CUTE.
I WONDER IF THEY'LL BE ABLE
TO TEACH HER HOW TO PLAY DEAD?
WE'LL CHECK IN WITH THEM LATER
ON BUT FIRST,
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

An announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THAT A BEE FLAPS ITS WINGS
ABOUT 300 BEATS PER SECOND,
A WASP FLAPS THEIRS 400 BEATS
PER SECOND,
BUT A DRAGONFLY FLAPS ITS WINGS
AT ONLY ABOUT THIRTY BEATS
PER SECOND.
YOU WOULD THINK A DRAGONFLY
WOULD NEED MORE BEATS PER SECOND
BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH BIGGER
IT IS THAN A WASP OR A BEE,
BUT THAT'S JUST NOT THE CASE.
THIS IS BECAUSE DRAGONFLIES HAVE
TWO SETS OF WINGS
SO THEY DON'T HAVE TO BEAT THEM
AS MUCH TO FLY.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE FRIENDS
IT'S TIME TO MEET
A FEW OTHER PALS OF MINE.
THEY'RE LOUD MOUTHED,
THEY'RE CHATTY,
THEY'RE LOOSE-LIPPED
AND THEY'RE NOISY.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
YES, IT'S TIME FOR TWO BOBS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says WELCOME NON-ANIMAL PRODUCT
EATING VEGANS.
I OFFICIALLY DECLARE MEAT EATERS
ANONYMOUS IN ORDER.

Crocodile Bob 2 says HELLO.
MY NAME IS BOB.

Crocodile Bob 1 says HELLO BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says IT'S BEEN AT LEAST A FEW MINUTES
SINCE I ATE MY LAST CARCASS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says GREAT WORK BOB.
HOW DO YOU FEEL?

Crocodile Bob 2 says HUNGRY. I FEEL HUNGRY.
OH WOW I COMPLETELY FORGOT TO
TELL YOU.

Crocodile Bob 1 says TELL ME WHAT BOB?

Crocodile Bob 2 says I KNOW WHERE SOME JUICY FRUIT
BATS ARE HANGING OUT.

Crocodile Bob 1 says WE'RE VEGANS BOB.
YOU CAN'T EAT BATS.

Crocodile Bob 2 says THAT'S MEAT BATS BOB.
THESE ARE FRUIT BATS.
I AM NOT A SAVAGE.
GOOD BYE.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO BOB, NO.
DON'T DO IT BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 goes in the water.

Crocodile Bob 1 says YOU CAN SWIM BOB
BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE.

Crocodile Bob 2 says BATS FOR EVERYBODY.

Crocodile Bob 2 hides under water.

Crocodile Bob 1 says OH, I GUESS YOU CAN HIDE.

Alfie says AND THAT MY CREATURE FRIENDS
WAS THE TWO BOBS.
WE'LL HEAR A BIT MORE
FROM THEM LATER ON.
NEXT ON THE SHOW, IT'S TIME
FOR SOME ANIMAL ENLIGHTENMENT,
FOR A LITTLE BIT
OF BRAIN TRAINING.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAP.
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS NOT CONSIDERED TO BE
ONE OF THE GREAT APES?
IS IT A THE GORILLA?
B THE ORANG-UTAN?
OR C THE GIBBON?
WELL, IF YOU ANSWERED A
THE GORILLA
YOU'D BE WRONG.
IN FACT GORILLAS MAY BE AMONG
THE MOST FAMOUS
OF THE GREAT APES.
HOWEVER, THE ANSWER IS ACTUALLY
C THE GIBBON.
GIBBONS ARE KNOWN AS BEING ONE
OF THE LESSER APES
BECAUSE THEY ARE SMALLER,
AND MORE CLOSELY RESEMBLE
MONKEYS THAN GREAT APES DO.
GIBBONS MAY NOT BE GREAT APES,
BUT THEY SURE KNOW
HOW TO MAKE A RACKET.
SOME ANIMALS WAKE UP
IN THE MORNING NATURALLY
AND SOME ANIMALS NEED
A WAKE UP CALL.
THE SIAMANG IS A TYPE
OF GIBBON THAT'S VERY PROTECTIVE
ABOUT IT'S TERRITORY.
EVERY MORNING WHEN THEY WAKE UP,
A SIAMANG FAMILY CALLS TO WARN
OTHER SIAMANGS TO STAY OUT
OF THEIR TERRITORY
AND ESPECIALLY TO STAY AWAY
FROM THEIR LOCAL
DELICIOUS FRUIT TREES.
THE CALLING IS USUALLY STARTED
BY THE ADULT FEMALE OF THE GROUP
AND FOR THE FIRST HALF HOUR
OF EVERY DAY
THE SIAMANG FAMILY HOOTS AND
HOLLERS TO STAKE OUT
THEIR CLAIM.
THE SIAMANG,
UNLIKE OTHER GIBBONS,
HAS AN INFLATABLE THROAT SAC,
WHICH INFLATES TO THE SIZE
OF ITS HEAD.
IT ACTS AS A RESONATING CHAMBER
FOR THEIR VOCAL CORDS,
AMPLIFYING THEIR CALLS EVEN
LOUDER.

((MUSIC PLAYS))

A gibbon says QUIET.
SILENCE.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT GUYS, STILL TO COME
ON TODAY'S SHOW.
WE HAVE MORE CANINE CRAZINESS
IN DOG TRICKS,
LOADS OF LAUGHS
WITH BAD PUN PONY,
AND A TRUCKLOAD
OF ANIMAL AMAZINGNESS
IN CREATURE QUIZ,
SOME ASTONISHING ANIMAL FACTS
AND WE MEET OUR PET AND GUEST
AND HERE IS SOME HILARITY
FROM THE TWO BOBS.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THE SEA CUCUMBER BREATHES
AND EVEN EATS THROUGH ITS REAR.
AS IT SUCKS WATER IN,
THE OXYGEN IS ABSORBED INTO THE
WALLS LINING THE ANUS.
ALSO WHEN A SEA CUCUMBER FEELS
THREATENED
IT WILL EXPEL SOME OF ITS
INTERNAL ORGANS
OUT OF ITS BOTTOM.
THESE PARTS CAN BE QUICKLY
REGENERATED.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says SEA CUCUMBERS.
SO STRANGE, YOU REALLY DO LEARN
SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY
DON'T YOU?
SPEAKING OF LEARNING SOMETHING,
WE HAVE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER BEING
PUT TO THE TEST IN DOG TRICKS.
YES, DR. KATRINA
AND ALEXANDER ARE TEACHING
ALEXANDER'S DOG INDIE
TO PLAY DEAD.
HMMM, SOUNDS TRICKY.
BUT LET'S SEE HOW THEY'RE
GETTING ON.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
ALEXANDER AND I ARE TEACHING
INDIE TO PLAY DEAD.
SHE IS SO CUTE.
THE FIRST STEP IS TO GET HER
TO LIE DOWN.
THE SECOND STEP IS GETTING HER
TO BE COMFORTABLE TO GO ONTO
HER SIDE OKAY.
SO WE ASK HER TO LIE DOWN.
DOWN.
GOOD GIRL.
THEN WITH THE TREAT FOLLOW
MY HAND AROUND
AND THEN WHEN SHE GOES ONTO HER
SIDE SHE GETS THE TREAT.
OKAY SO IT IS FOLLOWING THE NOSE
AND BRINGING IT IN NICE
AND TIGHT.
OKAY.
SO I WILL GIVE YOU A TREAT.
SO TREAT TO THE NOSE.
SHE KNOWS YOU HAVE GOT THE TREAT
AND THEN DOWN ON THE GROUND.
THAT'S IT.
NICE AND CLOSE TO THE BODY.
IF SHE GOES ON TO HER SIDE
SHE GETS THE TREAT.
PERFECT.
WE WILL KEEP PRACTICING THIS
SO SHE IS REALLY COMFORTABLE
LYING ON HER SIDE.
WE WILL BE BACK SOON WITH STEP
THREE: WHICH IS TEACHING HER
TO GO FROM THE DROP
TO THE LAY DOWN ALL IN ONE STEP.

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM A BIT
LATER ON.
AND NOW, TIME FOR SOME CHUCKLES
AND SOME GIGGLES AND MAYBE A BIT
OF SNIGGERING TOO WITH OUR
FAVOURITE FUNNY HORSE,
YES GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY...

A caption reads "IT’s Bad Pun Pony!"

A clip shows a brown pony galloping and neighing on a field.

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DO YOU CALL A COW THAT EATS
YOUR GRASS?
A LAWN MOOER.
HOW DOES A MOUSE FEEL AFTER IT
TAKES A SHOWER?
SQUEAKY CLEAN.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY, YAY.

Alfie says THAT PONY IS PRICELESS.
WE'LL HAVE MORE INCREDIBLE JOKES
FROM PONY NEXT TIME BUT NOW,
IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S HAVE A BIT
OF A BRAIN TRAIN
AND TEST OUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE.
YES, IT'S TIME
FOR ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS GROWS
THEIR OWN FOOD?
IS IT A THE ENERGETIC
SOLDIER ANT?
OH IT'S EXHAUSTING JUST LOOKING
AT THEM.
B THE INDUSTRIOUS
LEAFCUTTER ANT?
OR C THE MULTI-LEGGED
CATERPILLAR?
IF YOU ANSWERED B
THE LEAFCUTTER ANT
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THEY GROW THEIR OWN FOOD
AND THE LEAVES THAT THEY CARRY
PLAY A BIG PART IN THIS
FOOD GROWING PROCESS.
IT'S HARD WORK FEEDING EIGHT
MILLION HUNGRY MOUTHS.
JUST LIKE THE BUSIEST FACTORIES,
LEAF CUTTER ANTS DIVIDE UP
THE WORK
SO THAT IT'S SPREAD ALONG
AN ASSEMBLY LINE
OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF ANT.
THE COLONY'S LARGEST WORKER ANTS
ARE RESPONSIBLE
FOR COLLECTING FOLIAGE.
THEY ARE SUCH EFFICIENT LEAF
CUTTERS THAT A COLONY CAN STRIP
A TREE BARE IN JUST ONE NIGHT.
BUT THE ANTS DON'T EAT
THE LEAVES.
THEIR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM CAN'T
BREAK DOWN PLANT FIBRES
SO THEY HAVE TO PASS THEM ONTO
ANOTHER PART
OF THE ASSEMBLY LINE.
THE NEXT FACTORY WORKERS
ARE SMALLER
AND IT'S THEIR JOB TO START
THE PROCESS
OF TURNING LEAVES INTO FOOD.
THEY CHEW UP THE FOLIAGE AND ADD
IN A MIXTURE OF SALIVA
AND ANT POOP.
THESE PELLETS OF MULCH
ARE THEN COLLECTED BY
WORKERS CALLED GARDENER ANTS
BECAUSE THEY LOOK AFTER A MOST
UNUSUAL GARDEN.
A FUNGUS GROWS
ON THE CHEWED UP LEAVES... ..AND IT'S THIS FUNGUS THAT
FUELS
THE WHOLE LEAF CUTTER COLONY.
FINALLY THE SMALLEST ANTS,
CALLED THE CARETAKERS,
HARVEST THE CROP OF FUNGUS
AND DISTRIBUTE IT
AMONGST THE WHOLE COLONY.

An ant says PIZZA.

The announcer says BY FOLLOWING FOUR SIMPLE
TASKS... ..THE FUNGUS SUPPLY ALWAYS
MEETS THE DEMAND.

The ant says PIZZA.

Alfie says SO COOL.
ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS STILL
TO COME ON TODAY'S SHOW:
AN AMAZING ANIMAL FACT,
WE MEET TODAY'S PET AND N TELL
GUESTS, IN THE HOUSE.
THERE'S AN ADORABLE ANIMAL
IN TOO CUTE,
PLUS SOME MUSINGS FROM OUR
FAVOURITE BLACK AND WHITE BEAR
THE FANTASTIC PONDERING PANDA.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THE PARROT FISH MAKES IT'S
HOME OUT OF SNOT.

Kids say EWW.

The announcer says THIS DESIGNER SLEEPING BAG
IS MADE FROM MUCUS
SECRETED FROM GLANDS
IN ITS SKIN.
IT SOUNDS DISGUSTING
BUT THIS SLIMY SACK SEALS IN
THE PARROTFISH'S SMELL.
THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT
WHEN THERE ARE HUNTERS THAT
CAN SNIFF OUT THE SCENT
OF UNPROTECTED SLEEPING FISH
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE MANIACS
IT'S TIME
FOR THE BEST BIT OF THE SHOW,
WE MEET A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR PET RIGHT HERE
IN THE HOUSE BUT FIRST,
THERE'S THIS.

A clip shows two rodents fighting.

(ANIMAL WRESTLING SOUNDS)
((MUSIC PLAYS))

A caption reads "IT’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING SIENNA.
SHE HAS BROUGHT
IN HER PET DOG TO SHOW US.
HELLO SIENNA.

Sienna says HEY ALFIE.

Sienna is around 12, with long wavy blond hair and wears white shorts and a blue T-shirt. She has a dog on her lap.

Alfie says SO AHH, WHO IS THIS?

Sienna says THIS IS CARLOS SANCHEZ BAILEY.

Alfie says WHAT'S THE INSPIRATION BEHIND
THAT NAME?

Sienna says WELL CARLOS AND SANCHEZ
ARE MEXICAN NAMES
AND I REALLY WANTED TO CALL HIM
SOMETHING MEXICAN.
MY MUM REALLY LIKED CARLOS
AND I LIKE SANCHEZ
SO WE PUT IT TOGETHER.

Alfie says YEAH BECAUSE CHIHUAHUA IS A CITY
OVER IN MEXICO.

Sienna says YEAH.

Alfie says OH AWESOME.
CHIHUAHUA.
THE CHIHUAHUA IS THE SMALLEST
BREED OF DOG IN THE WORLD.
THE CHIHUAHUA HAS ONE
OF THE LONGEST LIFE SPANS.
IN ANCIENT TIMES PEOPLE BELIEVED
THEY HAD HEALING QUALITIES.
AND MUMMIFIED REMAINS HAVE BEEN
FOUND IN AMERICAN GRAVESITES.
CHIHUAHUA.
IS CARLOS EASY TO LOOK AFTER?

Sienna says YEAH HE DOESN'T REALLY NEED THAT
MUCH EXERCISE.
HE IS MORE OF AN INSIDE DOG.
AS FOR GROOMING
HE DOESN'T REALLY NEED
TO BE GROOMED THAT MUCH
BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE
HE IS A SHORT FUR AND.

Alfie says YEAH.
SO YOU DON'T GIVE HIM MUCH
EXERCISE?

Sienna says WELL WE TAKE HIM FOR SMALL WALKS
BUT IF YOU TAKE HIM
FOR TOO LONG A WALK YOU ARE
GOING TO HAVE TO PICK HIM UP
AND CARRY HIM BECAUSE HE GETS
TIRED REALLY EASILY.

Alfie says SO HE IS A BIT
OF A LAZY CHIHUAHUA?

Sienna says YEAH.

Alfie says DO YOU END UP CARRYING HIM
ON YOUR WALKS THEN?

Sienna says YEAH WELL SOMETIMES WE TAKE HIS
MAN BAG AND HE SITS IN IT
AND WE WALK HIM ALONG.

Alfie says SORRY HE HAS A WHAT?

Sienna says A MAN BAG.

Alfie says SO WHAT IS THIS MAN BAG?

Sienna says IT IS LIKE A HANDBAG BUT HE SITS
IN AND WE CARRY HIM
SO WE CALL IT HIS MAN BAG
BECAUSE HE IS A MAN AND...

Alfie says YEAH.
I HAVE ALSO NOTICED THAT CSB HAS
A GOOD TASTE IN BOW TIES.

Sienna says YEAH HE LOVES TO BE DRESSED UP
IN CLOTHES.
HE HAS A BIG WARDROBE
WITH HIS MANY OUTFITS.

Alfie says REALLY.
CAN YOU TELL ME HIS FAVOURITE
OUTFIT?

Sienna says WELL I WILL LET HIM SHOW YOU.
OH REALLY.

A clip shows Carlos in various outfits.

((MUSIC PLAYS))

Alfie says WOO HOO, THAT PUPPY'S GOT STYLE.
SO HOW OFTEN DO YOU FEED HIM?

Sienna says WELL HE ALWAYS HAS BISCUITS
AND WATER THROUGHOUT THE DAY
BUT THEN AT NIGHT MY MUM GIVES
HIM HOME COOKED MEALS.

Alfie says SO HE IS PRETTY MUCH LIVING
THE HIGH LIFE.

Sienna says YEAH HE IS VERY SPOILT.

Alfie says HE HAS GOT A WARDROBE.
HE GETS CARRIED IN HIS MAN BAG.

Sienna says YEP.

Alfie says HE GETS GOURMET DINNERS.

Sienna says YEAH.

Alfie says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR JOINING US ON THE SHOW TODAY SIENNA.

Sienna says NO WORRIES.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU
FOR INTRODUCING US TO YOUR
FABULOUS CHIHUAHUA CARLOS
SANCHEZ BAILEY.

Sienna says SURE.

Alfie says HE IS SUPER CUTE ISN'T HE?

Sienna says YEAH.

Alfie says SPEAKING OF CUTE
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says IN THE SEARING HEAT
OF THE SERENGETI LIVES
A CREATURE ALL THE OTHER
ANIMALS FEAR.
(ROAR)

The announcer says THE LION.
NIGHT STALKER, BRAWLER
AND ALL ROUND BAD BOY.
BUT THEY WEREN'T ALWAYS
LIKE THIS,
WHEN LIONS ARE BORN THEY'RE
ADORABLE LITTLE CUBS,
SPENDING THEIR DAYS HOPPING
ABOUT ON THEIR OVERSIZED PAWS,
PLAYING AND GETTING LOVELY LICKS
FROM MUM.
NOT SCARY AT ALL.
THEY'RE ACTUALLY...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says I LOVE THAT PART OF THE SHOW.
RIGHT, TIME FOR SOMETHING
A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S PUT YOUR ANIMAL
UNDERSTANDING TO THE TEST
AND NOURISH THAT BRAIN
OF YOURS IN ANOTHER...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
HAS BEEN NAMED AFTER A GOD?
IS IT A THE ADELIE PENGUIN?
B THE PEREGRINE FALCON?
OR C THE HANUMAN MONKEY?

A monkey says DOP-A-DO.

The announcer says IF YOU ANSWERED C
YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THIS TEMPLE IS DEVOTED TO
HANUMAN: THE MONKEY GOD.
AND THESE ARE HANUMAN MONKEYS.
THEY HAVE A CHARMED LIFE BECAUSE
THEIR NAMESAKE
IS WORSHIPPED BY MILLIONS
OF PEOPLE.
HANUMAN IS A POWERFUL GOD
AND WOULDN'T TAKE KINDLY TO
ANYBODY HURTING THE ANIMALS THAT
CARRY HIS NAME.
UNFORTUNATELY,
SOME MONKEYS HAVE TAKEN
ADVANTAGE
OF THEIR DIVINE PROTECTION
AND GET UP TO ALL KINDS OF
MONKEY BUSINESS.
THESE PRIVILEGED PRIMATES HAVE
BECOME TERRIBLE THIEVES.
TOURISTS LOVE WATCHING THE
MONKEYS' ANTICS UNTIL THEY
DISCOVER THEY'VE LOST NOT ONLY
THEIR WATER AND THEIR LUNCH,
BUT ALSO THEIR HANDBAGS,
SUNGLASSES AND CAMERAS.
SELFIE.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says WITH YOUR EYES OPEN SETTLE
INTO THE SILENCE
OF YOUR OWN CALM INNER BEING.
HMM.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says OH YEAH THIS BEAT IS MY JAM.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says EXCUSE ME BOB COULD YOU TURN
THAT DOWN PLEASE?
I AM TRYING TO MEDITATE.
THANK YOU.
NOW EVERYTHING IS SILENT.
EVERYTHING IS...

(beating sound)

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says BOB.
BOB.

Praying Mantis Bob punches Praying Mantis Bob 2.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says BOB, I AM TRYING TO FIND
MY TRANQUIL BREEZE HERE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says I THOUGHT YOU SAID TURN IT UP.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says OH DID YOU JUST SOIL
MY TRANQUIL BREEZE BOB?

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says NO I ENRICHED IT, A LITTLE.
OR A LOT.

Praying Mantis 2 farts.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says OKAY THAT'S A LOT.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says OH BOB, I AM NOT BREATHING
THAT IN.

Alfie says AHH, THOSE BOBS ARE BRILLIANT.
WELL CREATURE MANIACS,
WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE
STILL TO COME ON THE SHOW:
WE GOT ANOTHER INCREDIBLE
ANIMAL FACT,
SOME FASCINATING PONDERING
FROM OUR ROLY-POLY PAL THE ONE,
THE ONLY PONDERING PANDA.
AND TODAY'S FINAL VISIT
TO DR. KATRINA FOR STEP 3
IN DOG TRICKS.
SO, ALL THAT STILL TO COME
RIGHT HERE ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THE HERCULES MOTH
CATERPILLAR IS BUILT TO GRIP TO
ANY RAINFOREST SURFACE?
THE CATERPILLAR HAS LEGS
FOR EVERY OCCASION: SIX TRUE
LEGS, FOUR PAIRS OF SUCKER FEET
AND AT THE VERY END
OF THEIR BODIES TWO LARGE
CLASPERS,
WHICH ARE INCREDIBLY STRONG.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WHAT A GREAT FACT RIGHT?
OKAY CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME FOR A BIT
OF REFLECTION, FOR A BIT
OF CONTEMPLATION
AND RUMINATION.

A caption reads "Pondering Panda."

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda lying on its back says HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED ABOUT
HOW WEIRD
THE NUMBER ELEVEN IS?
I MEAN, WHY DO WE SAY ELEVEN?
WHY DON'T WE SAY ONETY-ONE?
OR TEN-ONE?
AND WHY DO WE CALL TWELVE,
TWELVE?
WHY ISN'T IT ONETY-TWO?
OR TEN-TWO?
HEY DO YOU KNOW WHAT I LIKE
ABOUT THE NUMBER ELEVEN?
IT LOOKS LIKE TWO STICKS
OF BAMBOO SIDE BY SIDE.
MMM, I LOVE BAMBOO.

Alfie says LET'S HEAD OVER TO DR. KATRINA
AND SEE HOW ALEXANDER
AND INDIE ARE GETTING ON
IN DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says I AM HERE WITH ALEXANDER
AND WE ARE UP TO THE FINAL STEP
OF OUR PLAY DEAD TRICK.
FIRST STEP IS TEACHING INDIE TO
LIE DOWN.
SECOND STEP IS TEACHING HER TO
GO ONTO HER SIDE.
THIRD STEP, READY,
IS TO PUT IT ALL TOGETHER.
OKAY.
SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO,
YOU CAN DO IT,
IS JUST GO STRAIGHT DOWN,
TO THE SIDE
AND SAY PLAY DEAD
AT THE SAME TIME.
OKAY ALL RIGHT.
SEE HOW YOU GO.
OKAY SHE HAS TO DROP.

Alex drops a treat and says DROP.

Katrina says GOOD GIRL.

Alex says PLAY DEAD.

Katrina says PERFECT.
SLOWLY OVER.
GOOD GIRL.
SLOWLY, GOOD GIRL.
THAT IS IT.
THAT IS THE PLAY DEAD.
NOW WELL DONE.
YOU GET THE TRICK?

Alex says YEP.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK SHE IS GOING TO DO
REALLY WELL IF YOU PRACTICE?

Alex says YEP.

Katrina says WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PART
OF TODAY?

Alex says PROBABLY LEARNING STEP TWO.
GETTING HER TO LIE ON HER SIDE.
THAT TOOK A BIT
OF PRACTICE DIDN'T IT?

Alex says YES.

Katrina says WELL YOU HAVE BOTH BEEN
FANTASTIC TODAY.
I DO HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED
TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME WITH
ANOTHER ONE.

Alex says AND UNFORTUNATELY THAT'S ALL
WE HAVE TIME FOR TODAY.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE SHOW.
IT'S BEEN A JAM-PACKED FESTIVAL
OF GIBBONS AND MONKEYS
AND CHIHUAHUAS AND MORE.
PHEW, NO WONDER I'M EXHAUSTED.
BUT I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MUCH MORE.
SO REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME,
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I AM ALFIE
AND THIS IS
CREATURE MANIA
