(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 IS ALL
ABOUT OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
AND COMPLETELY CREATURE CRAZY:
IT'S
CREATURE MANIA.
TODAY'S SHOW IS FULL
OF AMAZING ANIMALS, PLENTY
OF PETS AND DYNAMIC DOG TRICKS.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says
WE'VE GOT MASSIVE EMPEROR
PENGUINS, FUZZY HONEYBEES,
ANIMAL BANDITS
AND SNEAKY RODENTS.
HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY
AND WE CHILL OUT WITH SOME
SUPER CUTE SEA OTTERS
AND GET THE LOW DOWN ON GOLDFISH
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
I CAN HARDLY WAIT.
BUT FIRST LET'S HEAD OVER TO SEE
DR. KATRINA
AND FIND OUT WHAT DOG TRICK
WE'RE GOING TO LEARN
TODAY AND WHAT LUCKY YOUNG
TRAINER SHE HAS JOINING HER.
THIS IS...
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 THESE ARE THE INCREDIBLY
TALENTED WONDER DOGS.
TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO DANCE
AND DART IS GOING TO DEMONSTRATE
IT FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
HER FIRST.
MEET DART,
SHE'S THREE YEARS OLD.
HER NICKNAME IS DARTY.
HER FAVOURITE TRICKS ARE PLAYING
QUOITS
AND DOING DOGA: THAT'S YOGA
FOR DOGS.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says FAVOURITE HOBBIES: AGILITY
AND SWIMMING.
HER NAUGHTIEST DEED IS CHASING
THE KANGAROOS AT HER HOME.
HER OBSESSIONS: RUNNING
AND BEING CUDDLED.
HER FAVOURITE TREAT IS A DOB
OF YOGHURT
ON HER MORNING BREAKFAST.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE DART:
FUN, HAPPY AND SWEET.
AND NOW LET'S SEE DART
DEMONSTRATE IT.

A caption reads "Learn to Dance."

Katrina holds a treat up and says READY DARTY, UP.
YES.
GOOD GIRL.
THE DANCE IS A VERY CUTE
AND ENTERTAINING TRICK.
GOOD DANCING.
BUT IT DOES REQUIRE YOUR DOG
TO HAVE GOOD BALANCE
AND IT TAKES SOME SKILL.
IT'S NOT A TRICK TO TEACH YOUNG
PUPPIES OR LARGER BREEDS.
GOOD GIRL.
YEAH.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN EXPERT
DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.
I AM HERE TODAY WITH SIBELLE
AND BLUEY.
SIBELLE TELL US A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT BLUEY.

Sibelle is around 12, with long slightly wavy brown hair and wears black leggings and a blue green T-shirt. She sits on a bench with her dog, a white and black papillon with big fluffy ears.

Sibelle says BLUEY IS SIX MONTHS OLD
AND HE IS A PAPILLON
AND HE HAS ONE BLUE EYE.

Katrina says HE IS VERY CUTE.
UMM THEY'RE CALLED
THE BUTTERFLY DOGS AREN'T THEY?

Sibelle says BECAUSE
OF THEIR BIG EARS THAT
REPRESENTS A BUTTERFLY.

Katrina says THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL EARS AREN'T
THEY?
I LOVE THE WAY THEY'RE
SO ALERT WITH THOSE EARS.
UMM, WHAT KIND OF THINGS DO YOU
LIKE TO DO WITH BLUEY?

Sibelle says I LIKE TO RUN WITH HIM
IN THE BACKYARD
AND PLAY WITH HIM WITH ALL
HIS TOYS.

Katrina says WHAT KIND OF TRAINING HAVE YOU
BEEN DOING WITH HIM?

Sibelle says UMM WE DO THE BASICS LIKE SIT
AND COME AND STAY
BUT WE ALSO LIKE TO DO SOME
TRICKS LIKE SHAKE AND WAVE.

Katrina says THE PAPILLONS ARE VERY SMART
SO THEY LEARN VERY QUICKLY.
ARE YOU READY TO DO SOME
TRAINING?

Sibelle says YES.

Katrina says EXCELLENT.
LET'S GO.
TODAY SIBELLE AND I ARE GOING
TO TEACH BLUEY HOW TO DANCE.
NOW THIS IS THE PERFECT TRICK
FOR SMALL DOGS.
IT IS NOT A TRICK TO DO
WHEN YOU HAVE A LARGE DOG
OR AN OLDER DOG.
NOW THE FIRST STEP SIBELLE WE
JUST WANT TO GET BLUEY
IS JUST SITTING AND JUST
STRETCHING HIS HEAD UP.

She gives the dog a treat and says JUST LIKE THAT.
GOOD BOY.
I WILL GIVE YOU A YUMMY
TREAT TODAY.
THESE ONES.

Sibelle says SIT.

Katrina says STRETCH THAT HEAD UP SEE
PERFECT.
PERFECT.
THAT'S STEP ONE.
THAT'S PRETTY EASY.
WE WILL BE BACK WITH STEP TWO,
WHICH IS GETTING HIM UP
ON THOSE BACK LEGS SOON.

Alfie says SO CUTE.
I HAVE A FEELING HE'S GOING TO
NAIL IT.
BUT WE'LL CHECK
IN WITH THEM LATER.
FOR NOW IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..THE EMPEROR PENGUIN
IS THE LARGEST
OF THE SEVENTEEN SPECIES
OF PENGUIN,
STANDING AROUND ONE POINT
ONE-FIVE METRES TALL,
AND WEIGHING
IN BETWEEN TWENTY-TWO AND
FORTY-FIVE KILOGRAMS.
IT IS ALSO THE ONLY ANIMAL TO
INHABIT THE OPEN ICE
OF ANTARCTICA DURING THE WINTER,
WHICH IS ALSO THE TIME WHEN THEY
CHOOSE TO LAY THEIR EGGS.
THEY FACE WIND CHILLS AS COLD AS
MINUS SIXTY DEGREES CELSIUS
AND BLIZZARDS
OF 200 KILOMETRES PER HOUR,
SO THE EMPEROR PENGUIN CAN LAY
CLAIM TO BEING THE TOUGHEST
ANIMAL IN THE ANTARCTIC.
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 NEED NO INTRODUCTION.
THEY'RE OBSTREPEROUS,
THEY'RE CLAMOROUS,
THEY'RE BOISTEROUS
AND THEY'RE EFFUSIVE.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Rodent Bob 1 says UP AND AT THEM BOB.

Rodent Bob 2 says HOW MANY KS ARE WE RUNNING
TODAY BOB?

They try to get out of a hollow tree trunk.

Rodent Bob 1 says OH BOB BACK UP WE'RE STUCK
COME ON.

Rodent Bob 2 says OH CRAMP BOB.
I HAVE GOT A CRAMP.

Rodent Bob 1 says ALREADY BOB?
FEELING THE BURN BOB?

Rodent Bob 2 says I AM NOT BURNT BOB.

Rodent Bob 1 says I MEAN YOUR LEGS, ARE YOUR LEGS
HURTING?

Rodent Bob 2 says OH, THEY ARE BOB.
IS THAT GOOD?

Rodent Bob 1 says YEAH OKAY WE ARE GOING TO GET
SOME CARBS.

Rodent Bob 2 says MMM, GRASS.
THIS IS GOOD GRASS.

Rodent Bob 1 says YEAH THAT WAS A GOOD TWO-MINUTE
WORK OUT BOB.

Rodent Bob 2 says OH TO THE MAX BOB.

Rodent Bob 1 says WE REALLY EARNT THIS
TWENTY-THREE HOUR NAP BOB.

They get back inside the trunk.

Rodent Bob 2 says YEAH.
UMM.
YOU'RE ON MY LEG BOB.

Alfie says OH BRILLIANT.
THEY'LL BE BACK LATER
ON WITH MORE CHATTER.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME
FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
LET'S ENGAGE IN SOME
ANIMAL EXPLORATION,
LET'S FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
YES GET READY IT'S TIME
FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
CAN CHANGE THEIR SEX?
IS IT A THE FREAKY LOOKING
WACKY WETA?
B THE EVER-HUNGRY
HUMMINGBIRDS?
OR IS IT C THE RAMBUNCTIOUS
WRASSE?
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE WRASSE CAN CHANGE ITS SEX.

The wrasse says PAINT ME YELLOW
AND CALL ME BANANA.

The announcer says WHETHER AN ANIMAL IS BORN A BOY
OR A GIRL IS USUALLY PRETTY
STRAIGHTFORWARD.
HOWEVER, THINGS ARE FAR MORE
COMPLICATED
FOR SOME ANIMALS,
AND REQUIRE A VERY UNUSUAL
TRANSFORMATION.
ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE A FISH
CALLED A WRASSE.
THESE TROPICAL REEF DWELLERS
DON'T JUST GET BORN AS BOYS
AND GIRLS, THEY MAKE
THE DECISION
WHICH ONE THEY SHOULD BE.
THE STRIPED MALE IS
UNMISTAKABLE.
HE'S BIG, BRIGHT AND A BULLY.
HE COMPLETELY DOMINATES A HAREM
OF LIGHTLY COLOURED FEMALES.
AND YET THIS TOUGH GUY
STARTED LIFE AS A GIRL.
IN FACT ALL THESE WRASSE STARTED
LIFE AS FEMALES.
ALL IT TAKES IS
FOR THE BULLYING MALE TO DIE
AND ONE OF THE TOUGHER FEMALES
WILL UNDERGO A SEX CHANGE.
WITHOUT THE MALE'S DAILY
DOMINANCE,
THE FEMALE'S HORMONE BALANCE
CHANGES.
IN JUST TWO WEEKS,
SHE BECOMES A MALE.
HOWEVER,
THERE'S NOTHING FEMININE
ABOUT A FEMALE WRASSE THAT'S
HAD A SURGE OF HORMONES.
SHE BECOMES VERY MASCULINE
AND VERY AGGRESSIVE.
AFTER ITS GENDER RE-ALIGNMENT,
THE MALE WRASSE
BECOMES FIERCELY TERRITORIAL.
IT WILL ATTACK ANY INTRUDER
EVEN IF IT MEANS
LASHING OUT AT ITS OWN
REFLECTION IN A MIRROR.

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 QUEEN BEE IS EXPECTED TO
PRODUCE AN EGG
EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY.
THIS CAN MEAN MORE THAN 200,000
EGGS IN A YEAR.
FROM THE MOMENT A WORKER BEE
HATCHES, IT STARTS
ON A PROGRESSION OF JOBS.
FIRST IT CLEANS UP AROUND
THE HONEYCOMB.
THEN AFTER A FEW DAYS, GLANDS
ON ITS ABDOMEN START PRODUCING
WAX, WHICH IT USES TO BUILD
AND REPAIR COMB.
AFTER A WHILE,
THE BEES MOVE ONTO GUARDING THE
NEST AND PRODUCING HONEY.
FINALLY,
AT JUST THREE WEEKS OLD,
THE WORKER BEE LEAVES THE HIVE
TO FORAGE FOR POLLEN AND NECTAR.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says THOSE BUSY HONEY BEES.
ALWAYS DOING SOMETHING,
BUZZING AROUND IN A WORLD
OF THEIR OWN.
REMINDS ME OF ANOTHER ANIMAL
I KNOW WHO LOOKS LIKE
HE'S ACTUALLY
FROM ANOTHER WORLD.
YEP, IT'S TIME TO CHECK
IN WITH DR. KATRINA
AND SIBELLE AS THEY TRAIN BLUEY
TO DANCE.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
SIBELLE AND I ARE TEACHING
BLUEY HOW TO DANCE.
NOW THE FIRST STEP WAS JUST
GETTING HIM USED TO STRETCHING
HIS NECK UP A LITTLE BIT
AND GET COMFORTABLE WITH THAT.
THAT'S IT.
GOOD BOY.
SO AS SOON AS HE GOES UP LIKE
THAT GIVE HIM A TREAT.
NOW THE KEY IS TO NOT HOLD
THE TREAT TOO HIGH,
HE WILL JUMP UP FOR IT.
SO YOU WANT HIM TO JUST FOLLOW
IT UP WITH HIS NOSE OKAY.
GIVE YOU A NICE PIECE OF CHEESE
FOR HIM THIS TIME.
DANCE, GOOD BOY.
SO THAT IS STEP NUMBER TWO.
GETTING HIM USED TO HOPPING ONTO
HIS BACK LEGS
AND THE THIRD STEP WILL BE
GETTING HIM USED TO ACTUALLY
BALANCING ON THEM.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WHENEVER
YOU ARE DOING ANY DOG TRAINING
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ADULT
SUPERVISION FOR YOUR SAFETY
AND YOUR DOGS.
OKAY WE WILL BE BACK WITH THAT
THIRD STEP SOON.
BACK TO THE STUDIO NOW.

Alfie says MORE FROM DR. KATRINA
AND DOG TRICKS A BIT LATER ON
BUT NOW, TIME FOR SOME HILARITY
AND MERRIMENT
FROM OUR FAVOURITE STAND-UP
HORSE.
GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY HILARIOUS HORSE...

A caption reads "IT’s Bad Pun Pony!"

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

Bad Pun Pony says HERE'S ONE FOR YOU.
WHY WAS THE CAT AFRAID
OF THE TREE?
BECAUSE OF THE BARK.
WHAT DO YOU CALL A PIG
WHO KNOWS KARATE?
PORK CHOP.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY, YAY.

Alfie says I DO LOVE A BIT
OF PONY ENTERTAINMENT.
THOUGH SHE IS SOUNDING
A LITTLE HORSE.
MORE PONY PUNS NEXT TIME
BUT NOW IT IS TIME
FOR SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT.
LET'S TAKE A LOOK
AND SEE IF WE CAN GUESS THE
CORRECT ANIMAL.
IT IS...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS THE BIGGEST HOUSEHOLD PEST?
IS IT A THE PIG?
UMM I THINK YOU'VE GOT SOMETHING
ON YOUR FACE, BUDDY.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO WORK
ON YOUR TABLE MANNERS.
B THE CAT?
LOOK AT THEIR EYES,
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT THEY'RE
REALLY THINKING, DO YOU?
OR C THE RACCOON?
THE BANDIT-LIKE BLACK MARKS
AROUND THEIR EYES MAKE THEM
INSTANTLY RECOGNIZABLE.
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
THE RACCOON YOU'D BE CORRECT.
THEY ARE A MASSIVE HOUSEHOLD
PEST.
IN URBAN AREAS
IN THE UNITED STATES RACCOONS
ARE AMONG THE MOST COMMON
WILD ANIMAL THAT HAVE TO BE
REMOVED HUMANELY FROM PEOPLES'
HOMES BY ANIMAL CONTROL EXPERTS.
BUT THEY DIDN'T START OFF
IN THE CITY.
DOWN ON THE FARM,
THE RACCOON HAS LONG HAD A
REPUTATION FOR GETTING
IN TROUBLE.

A raccoon comes out of a trash bin and says HOORAY.

The announcer says AND THESE MASKED BANDITS CAN GET
INTO JUST AS MUCH TROUBLE WHEN
THEY MOVE INTO THE BIG CITY.
(CHUCKLES)

The announcer says CITIES ARE FULL
OF DELIGHTFUL PLACES
FOR RACCOONS TO EXPLORE
AND MAKE THEIR HOMES.

The racoon gets in another trash bin and says OH OH.
OUCH.

The announcer says RACCOONS HAVE ADAPTED SO WELL
TO CITY LIFE THAT THERE
CAN BE FORTY RACCOON INHABITANTS
PER SQUARE KILOMETRE.
USING THEIR NIMBLE LITTLE PAWS
SOME RACCOONS HAVE LEARNED HOW
TO OPEN REFRIGERATOR DOORS,
UNSCREW JARS,
AND EVEN UNCORK WINE BOTTLES.

The raccoon says YOU BETCHA.

The announcer says RACCOONS ARE SO AT HOME
IN OUR HOUSES THAT ANIMAL
PROTECTION GROUPS REGULARLY GET
CALL OUTS TO REMOVE FURRY
SQUATTERS WHO HAVE TAKEN UP
RESIDENCE IN HUMAN HOUSES.
POWER COMPANIES CLAIM THAT
RACCOONS GET INTO THE WIRING
OF SUBSTATIONS UNPLUGGING THEM
AND LEAVING THEM IN THE DARK.

Alfie says WHAT AMAZING CREATURES.
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... ..AFTER A GESTATION
PERIOD OF TWENTY-EIGHT DAYS,
A SINGLE BABY WALLABY IS BORN.
LIKE MOST MARSUPIALS,
YOUNG WALLABIES
OR JOEYS ARE BORN VERY SMALL,
UNDEVELOPED AND VULNERABLE.
AS SOON AS THEY ARE BORN,
THEY CRAWL INTO THEIR MOTHER'S
POUCH WHERE THEY REMAIN
FOR AT LEAST TWO MONTHS
AND CONTINUE TO DEVELOP
OVER THE NEXT SEVEN MONTHS,
IN WHICH TIME THEY TAKE THE FORM
OF CUTE AND RECOGNIZABLE
BABY WALLABIES.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says RIGHT, TIME TO CHANGE THINGS UP.
IT'S THE PART OF THE SHOW
I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO,
WE'RE GOING TO MEET A SPECIAL
GUEST AND THEIR SPECIAL PET
RIGHT HERE
IN THE HOUSE.
BUT FIRST, THERE'S THIS.

(MUSIC AND BOING SOUNDS)

A clip shows a dog following around a moving computer pointer.

((MUSIC PLAYS))

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING ANNA.
SHE HAS BROUGHT
IN HER PET GOLD FISH TO SHOW US.
HELLO ANNA.

Anna is around 10, with long straight light brown hair in a ponytail. She wears blue shorts and a red T-shirt.

Anna says HELLO ALFIE.

Alfie says SO AHH WHO ARE THESE GUYS?

Anna says WELL THESE ARE MY GOLDFISH.

Alfie says YEAH. WHAT ARE THEIR NAMES?

Anna says THEY'RE FRED AND GEORGE
AND THIS GOLD
AND WHITE ONE IS SERIOUS BLACK.

Alfie says OH I LOVE HOW THAT IS THE
OPPOSITE COLOUR.
THE WHITE ONE IS SERIOUS BLACK.

Anna says AND THESE ARE MY DANEOS,
THE SMALLER FISH
AND THEY'RE HARRY, HERMIONE,
JINNI AND RON.

Alfie says OKAY SO I CAN SEE A SERIOUS
THEME HAPPENING HERE.

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says THAT'S AWESOME.
GOLD FISH.
GOLD FISH DON'T HAVE STOMACHS.
THE COLLECTIVE NOUN
FOR GOLDFISH IS A TROUBLING.
SO YOU WOULD SAY A TROUBLING
OF GOLDFISH.
GOLDFISH HAVE NO EYELIDS
SO THEY HAVE TO SLEEP WITH THEIR
EYES OPEN.
THEY CAN SEE MORE COLOURS
THAN HUMANS.
WE CAN ONLY SEE IN COMBINATIONS
OF THE THREE PRIMARY COLOURS
BUT GOLDFISH CAN SEE FOUR
DIFFERENT ONES.
THIS HELPS THEM SEE MOVEMENT
IN THE WATER
AND FIND FOOD EASIER.
GOLDFISH.
HOW COOL.
SO YOU REALLY HAVE TO BE QUITE
SMART TO LOOK AFTER GOLDFISH.

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says SO YOU'RE KIND
OF LIKE A PROFESSOR
OR A SCIENTIST.
WHICH ONE DO YOU PREFER?
ANNA THE SCIENTIST
OR ANNA THE PROFESSOR?

Anna says ANNA THE SCIENTIST.

Alfie says YEAH, I LIKE THAT TOO.

Anna says YEAH.

They high-five.

Alfie says SO I SEE YOU HAVE A LOT
OF DIFFERENT FISH IN HERE.
DO THEY ALL HAVE THEIR
OWN PERSONALITIES?

Anna says YES THEY DO.
FRED HERE WILL FLIP UPSIDE DOWN
SO HIS BACK IS FACING THE GROUND
AND IT SCARES ME SOMETIMES
AS I THINK HE IS DEAD
AND THEN THIS GOLD ONE HERE
HE LIKES TO SLEEP WITH HIS NOSE
IN THE REED.

Alfie says SO IS THAT A REAL TREE
THAT'S IN THERE?

Anna says YEAH IT IS.

Alfie says AND THAT'S REAL ROCKS?

Anna says YES.

Alfie says SILLY QUESTION.
IS THE WATER REAL?

Anna says YEAH IT IS.

Alfie says OKAY COOL.
I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE.

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says SO AHH, BIG QUESTION HERE,
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY GO
TO THE TOILET?

Anna says I CLEAN AFTER THEM
WHEN THE WATER CHANGE HAPPENS.
SO THERE IS A VACUUM THING THAT
YOU CAN JUST SHAKE
AND IT PICKS UP ALL THEIR STUFF
IN THE GROUND THAT GETS RID
OF ALL THE POO AND STUFF.

Alfie says SO YOU PICK UP ALL THE POO?

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says OH AND YOU PUT IT
IN THE VACUUM.

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says OH OH.
SO IF OTHERS WERE THINKING ABOUT
GETTING GOLDFISH
FOR PETS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Anna says YEAH, I WOULD AS THEY HAVE
FUNNY PERSONALITIES.

Alfie says WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING
ON THE SHOW TODAY ANNA.

Anna says THANK YOU.

Alfie says THANK YOU FOR BRINGING
IN YOUR FRED, GEORGE
AND CO TO MEET US.

Anna says YEAH.

Alfie says CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says OTTERS, OTTERS, OTTERS.
EVERYBODY LOVES AN OTTER.
THEY'RE KINDA LIKE THE CATS
OF THE SEA.
AND THEY CAN HOLD THEIR BREATH
FOR UP TO SIX MINUTES.
THEY SPEND A LOT OF TIME LYING
ON THEIR BACKS GROOMING
AND THEY JUST LOVE TO PLAY.
ALTHOUGH THEY'RE MARINE MAMMALS
THEY'RE ALSO QUITE HAPPY
ON THE LAND.
BUT WHEN IT'S TIME TO TAKE A NAP
THEY LOVE TO CUDDLE UP
AND EVEN HOLD HANDS.
THE OTTER.

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says WE'LL HAVE MORE OF THAT
NEXT TIME.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME FOR SOMETHING
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
LET'S HAVE A BIT
OF ANIMAL ENLIGHTENMENT, A BIT
OF EXPLORATION AND FEED THAT
BRAIN OF YOURS.
IT'S...

A caption reads "Creature Quiz."

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
CAN CHEW THROUGH METAL?
IS IT A THE RAT?

A clip shows a rat nibbling on something.

The announcer says AWW, HE'S KIND OF ADORABLE.
B THE SNOW MONKEY WHO HAS FOUND
AN INGENIOUS WAY TO SURVIVE
THE COLD BY BATHING
IN THESE HOT SPRINGS?
BY THE LOOK OF IT THEY LOVE IT.
OR IS IT C THE CHEETAH?
THE FIERCE AND FAST PREDATOR
OF THE AFRICAN PLAINS.

A clip shows the cheetahs chasing a herd of springboks.

The announcer says OH WOW, LOOK AT ALL THOSE
SPRINGBOKS SCATTER.
I CAN'T BEAR TO WATCH.
WELL, IF YOU GUESSED A
YOU ARE CORRECT.
RATS CAN CHEW THROUGH METAL.
AND THE JAWS OF A RAT
ARE 120 TIMES STRONGER
THAN A HUMAN'S WHICH MEANS
THEY COULD EASILY GNAW A HOLE
IN A LEAD PIPE,
OR A RUBBISH BIN,
OR EVEN CONCRETE.
RATS HAVE BEEN AROUND
FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS,
AND THEY'VE ALWAYS ASSOCIATED
THEMSELVES WITH HUMANS,
AND AS A RESULT THEY'VE BEEN
ABLE TO ADAPT TO LIVE
ALONGSIDE THEM.
RATS ARE ALSO SO MUCH SMALLER
AND LIGHTER THAN HUMANS
SO THEY HAVE NO TROUBLE FALLING
GREAT DISTANCES.
IN FACT,
A RAT CAN SURVIVE A FALL
FROM A FIVE-STOREY BUILDING.
A SINGLE PAIR OF RATS
COULD HAVE 15,000
OFFSPRING IN A YEAR.
IF THEY ALL SURVIVED.
AND SURVIVING
IS WHAT A RAT DOES BEST.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says HEY BOB, HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH?

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says I HAVE NO IDEA BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says COME ON.
I BET YOU WEIGH A LOT.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says WELL THAT'S NOT VERY POLITE
BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says I WILL SEE IF I CAN PICK YOU UP.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says I'D PREFER YOU DIDN'T BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says OH COME ON BOB.
COME ON.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says PLEASE DON'T PICK ME UP.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says UP YOU GO BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says PUT ME DOWN.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says COME ON BOBBY.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says OH BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says I AM GOING TO SAY, OH ABOUT
EIGHT OR NINE GRAMS BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says CAREFUL BOB, CAREFUL.
OH.

Beetle Bob 2 falls from a tree.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says WHOOPSIE.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says EIGHT OR NINE GRAMS YOU SAY.

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says WELL BY THE SIZE OF THE DIVOT
IN THE DIRT YOU MADE BOB
I'D SAY TAKE AHH WIND DIRECTION
INTO ACCOUNT, ADD THE VECTORS
AND THERE IS GRAVITY ALWAYS
THERE.
ALL RIGHT CARRY THE TWO,
KEEP THE DECIMAL POINT,
TAKE THE COSINE, COEFFICIENT.
YEAH YOU'RE REALLY FAT BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says A GOOD THING?

Rhino Beetle Bob 1 says FOR A RHINO BEETLE YES.
IN FACT I THINK YOU COULD EAT
A BIT MORE BOB.

Rhino Beetle Bob 2 says EATING MORE NOW.

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... ..LUMHOLTZ'S TREE KANGAROO HAS
A BIG STOMACH THAT ALLOWS
VERY LARGE AMOUNTS OF LEAVES
TO BE EATEN.
LEAVES HAVE A LOW NUTRIENT
VALUE, SO THEY HAVE TO EAT
A LOT OF THEM TO GET THE ENERGY
THEY NEED.
THE TREE-KANGAROO MAY APPEAR
CLUMSY... ..BUT IT IS AN EFFICIENT
CLIMBER.
ON BROADER, HORIZONTAL BRANCHES,
THE TREE-KANGAROO MOVES
IN THE TYPICAL KANGAROO HOPPING
MOTION THAT
WE'RE ALL USED TO.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME FOR A BIT
OF DELIBERATION, A BIT
OF COGITATION AND SPECULATION.
LET'S HAVE A BIT OF ANALYSIS
WITH OUR FAVOURITE
BLACK AND WHITE, ROLY-POLY,
BAMBOO EATING,
PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda lying on its back says WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH KNEECAPS?
I MEAN, HAVE YOU EVER REALLY
THOUGHT HARD ABOUT KNEECAPS?
I MEAN, WHY DO THEY ALWAYS BEND
FORWARDS?
WHY DON'T THEY BEND BACKWARDS
OR SIDEWAYS?
AND WHY ARE THEY CALLED
KNEES ANYWAY,
THEY SHOULD BE CALLED BENDY BITS
OR LEG CORNERS.
YEAH, LEG CORNERS THAT'S WHAT
THEY SHOULD BE CALLED.
THAT MAKES TOTAL SENSE.
WEIRD.

Alfie says ANYWAY NOW IT'S TIME FOR OUR
FINAL SHOWDOWN WITH BLUEY,
THE SUPER SMART
AND ADORABLE PAPILLON DOG
AND HIS OWNER SIBELLE.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says HI AGAIN.
WE ARE READY TO TEACH BLUEY
STEP THREE OF THE DANCE TRICK.
AND THAT IS REALLY ABOUT GETTING
HIM COMFORTABLE TO BALANCE
AND STAY ON THEIR BACK LEGS.
SO JUST REWARD HIM
IF HE HOLDS IT
FOR JUST A SECOND
OR TWO SECONDS OR THREE SECONDS.
THAT WILL BE THE TRICK.
SO LET'S SEE HOW WE GO.
BLUEY.
SAME THING.
JUST STAND TO MAKE IT EASY.
SO BLUEY COME.
COME.
YES.
GOOD BOY.
DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A GO?

She gives Sibelle a treat and says HERE YOU GO, HERE YOU GO.

Katrina says YES.
GOOD BOY.
WHAT A STAR HUH.

Sibelle says YEAH.

Katrina says HAVE YOU ENJOYED TRAINING
HIM TODAY?

Sibelle says YEAH, I AM REALLY PROUD OF HIM
AND I REALLY LIKE THIS TRICK.

Katrina says IT IS REALLY COOL.
IT'S VERY CUTE
AND DO YOU THINK YOU WILL KEEP
UP THE TRAINING AT HOME?

Sibelle says DEFINITELY.

Katrina says WELL WE ARE PROUD
OF YOU TOO BLUEY.
YOU HAVE BEEN AMAZING.
THAT'S IT FOR DOG TRICKS TODAY
BUT WE WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE.
YOU ARE A STAR.

Alfie sasy WELL THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TIME
FOR TODAY CREATURE FANS.
I HOPE YOU HAD FUN WATCHING
SIBELLE AND BLUEY
AND MEETING ANNA AND HER
AMAZING FISH.
I SURE DID.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I AM ALFIE
AND THIS IS
CREATURE MANIA.
SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
