(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.
THE PLACE WITH ALL THE FUN
FILLED, FANTASTIC AND FUNNY.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says
TODAY WE CHECK OUT
THE HEAD BANGING WOODPECKER,
GET WILD WITH A WILDEBEEST
AND MEET SOME NOISY CICADAS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH
WITH PANDA AND PONY,
HANGOUT WITH SOME SUPER FLUFFY
ORANGUTAN BABIES
AND WE MEET A BEAUTIFUL BUNNY
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
WE HAVE A PACKED SHOW
COMING YOUR WAY
WITH SO MUCH TO LOOK FORWARD TO.
BUT FIRST IT'S TIME TO HEAD
OVER TO DR KATRINA
AND THE WONDER DOGS
AND FIND OUT
WHAT TRICK
SHE'LL BE TEACHING TODAY.
IT'S TIME FOR DOG TRICKS.

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 VERY TALENTED
WONDER DOGS.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO COME
WHEN THEY'RE CALLED.
AND SKETCH IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT
ABOUT HER FIRST.
MEET SKETCH,
SHE'S SEVEN YEARS OLD.
SHE'S KNOWN FOR HAVING
AN UNUSUAL COAT COLOUR
AND DIFFERENT COLOURED EYES.
HER NICKNAMES ARE SKITS
AND SKIDDITCH.
SKETCH IS THE FREE SPIRIT
OF THE WONDER DOG TEAM.
SHE'S SOMETIMES NAUGHTY
AND HAS LOTS OF CHARACTER.
HER HOBBIES,
WELL THERE'S SO MANY.
THEY INCLUDE CHASING BIRDS,
DIVING INTO THE DAM
AND RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HER FAVOURITE TRICKS
ARE JUMPING,
DOING HANDSTANDS AND SKIPPING.
HER NAUGHTIEST DEED: JUMPING UP
ONTO THE KITCHEN BENCH
TO PINCH FOOD.
PET HATES, WELL SHE HATES
HAVING SMELLING THINGS
WASHED OFF HER.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE SKETCH:
QUIRKY, MISCHIEVOUS
AND ENERGETIC.
AND NOW LET'S SEE SKETCH
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Come when called."

Katrina says SKETCH.
SIT.
GOOD GIRL.
TEACHING YOUR DOG
TO COME TO YOU
WHEN YOU CALL THEM
IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.
YOU NEED TO BE CONFIDENT TO KNOW
THAT YOUR DOG WILL RETURN TO YOU
IN ANY ENVIRONMENT.

Sketch stands on two feet.

Katrina says OH, THANK YOU.
WELL, NOW WE'VE SEEN
AN EXPERT DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE
TO TRAIN THEIR DOG.
WE'RE HERE TODAY WITH GABBY
AND HER DOG HUGO.
OH, HE IS A GORGEOUS DOG.
TELL ME WHERE DID HE COME FROM?

Gabby is around 12, with long slightly wavy brown hair with bangs in a ponytail. She wears denim shorts and a yellow T-shirt.

Gabby says WOLLONGONG.

Katrina says YOU ADOPTED HIM?

Gabby says WE ADOPTED HIM WHEN HE WAS TWO
AND WE REALLY LOVE HIM NOW.
HE'S THE BEST.

Katrina says HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE
HIS PERSONALITY?

Gabby says CUTE.
ALSO FUNNY CAUSE WHEN MY MUM
COMES HOME HE GOES MAD
AND HE JUMPS ALL AROUND
AND HE IS SO EXCITED
AND THEN WHEN SOMEONE ELSE COMES
HE IS LIKE EH.

Katrina says THEY'RE GOOD COMPANY,
AREN'T THEY?

Gabby says YEAH.

Katrina says HAVE YOU DONE ANY TRAINING
WITH HIM?

Gabby says YES SO HE CAN SIT, LIE DOWN
AND SLEEP.

Katrina says AND WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN
SOME TRICKS?

Gabby says YES

Katrina says OKAY LET'S GET TO IT.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO TEACH HUGO
TO COME WHEN HE'S CALLED.
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
SO WHEN YOU GO TO THE PARK
YOU KNOW YOUR DOG
WILL COME BACK TO YOU.
OKAY FIRST STEP,
OKAY, YOU NEED TO POP HIM DOWN
ON THE GROUND FOR ME.
WE'RE GOING TO KEEP HIM
ON THE LEAD.
WE'RE IN A NICE
CONFINED ENVIRONMENT.
YOU GOT SOME TREATS
AND A SQUEAKY TOY
FOR ENCOURAGEMENT.
I'LL HOLD HIM.
JUST GO A COUPLE OF STEPS AWAY
AND THEN CALL HUGO COME.

Gabby says HUGO COME HERE.

Katrina says PERFECT.
SO THAT IS STEP ONE.
PRETTY SIMPLE, ON THE LEAD,
OVER A SHORT DISTANCE.
WE'RE GOING TO WORK ON THAT
AND COME BACK WITH STEP TWO,
WHICH IS TAKE HIM OFF THE LEAD
AND PRACTICE
OVER A SHORT DISTANCE AGAIN.

Alfie says I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING
HUGO LEARN TODAY'S TRICK,
HE'S A PRETTY CUTE DOG.
AND WHAT A SMILEY HAPPY FACE.
WE'LL CHECK BACK IN WITH KATRINA
A BIT LATER ON TO SEE
HOW THEY'RE DOING, BUT FIRST
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

An announcer says SOME SPECIES OF WOODPECKERS
BASH THEIR BEAK
AGAINST A TREE 20 TIMES
A SECOND,
AND UP TO 12,000 TIMES A DAY?
BRAINS ARE USUALLY SURROUNDED
BY LOTS OF FLUID,
BUT THE SKULL OF THE WOODPECKER
IS A TIGHT FIT:
IT REDUCES THE WOBBLING
THAT CAUSES CONCUSSIONS.
A CUSHION OF SPONGY BONE
AT THE BASE OF THE BEAK
PROVIDES EXTRA PADDING,
AND BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
SO DOES THE WOODPECKERS
INCREDIBLE TONGUE.
INSTEAD OF BEING ANCHORED
IN THE BACK OF THE MOUTH,
THE TONGUE IS ATTACHED
TO THE RIGHT NOSTRIL,
AND STRETCHES RIGHT AROUND
THE SKULL.
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 GREGARIOUS,
THEY'RE MOTOR MOUTHED,
THEY'RE CHATTY
AND THEY'RE GOSSIPY.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE
TALKING ABOUT?
YES, YOU GUESSED IT.
IT'S TIME FOR THE TWO BOBS.

Crocodile Bob 1 says IN TODAY'S MEAT EATERS
ANONYMOUS SESSION
WE'RE GOING TO BE USING
MINDFULNESS TO HELP US
WITH OUR MEAT CRAVINGS.

Crocodile Bob 2 says WHAT'S MINDFULNESS, BOB?

Crocodile Bob 1 says IT'S WHEN YOU REALLY FOCUS ON
WHAT'S HAPPENING
IN THE PRESENT MOMENT.
(SNORING)

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB?

Crocodile Bob 2 says SORRY BOB I WASN'T LISTENING.
WHAT DID YOU SAY?

Crocodile Bob 1 says LET'S START BY TUNING IN
TO OUR BODIES.
(STOMACH GROWLING)

Crocodile Bob 1 says WITH MINDFULNESS WE WILL
OVERCOME OUR MEAT CRAVINGS.
WON'T WE, BOB?
WON'T WE, BOB?

Crocodile Bob 2 says SORRY BOB, I CAN'T HEAR YOU.
MY STOMACH'S TALKING TOO LOUD.

Crocodile Bob 1 says BOB, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

Crocodile Bob 2 says JUST LIKE YOU SAID BOB.
TURNING INTO MY BODY
AND THIS PIG CARCASS TOO.

Crocodile Bob 1 says FIGHT IT BOB.
FIGHT IT.

Crocodile Bob 2 says NO USE FIGHTING,
IT'S ALREADY DEAD.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO I MEAN FIGHT THE URGE BOB.

Crocodile Bob 2 says URGE IS WINNING.
URGE IS WINNING.

Crocodile Bob 1 says NO BEAT IT.
PUT THE CARCASS DOWN.

Crocodile Bob 2 says I WILL PUT IT DOWN MY THROAT.

(BELCH)

Alf says AND THAT CREATURE FANS,
WAS THE TWO BOBS.
THEY'RE BRILLIANT ALL RIGHT.
MORE FROM THEM LATER ON.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE COMPREHENSION
AND FEED THAT BRAIN OF YOURS.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAP.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

A caption reads "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says HAS A DIET
THAT ONLY CONSISTS OF LEAVES?
IS IT A.
THE LAZY, SLEEPY SLOTH?
B THE STRONG, LUMBERING
ELEPHANT?

(TRUMPETING)

The announcer says C THE MINI KANGAROO KNOWN
AS THE WALLABY?
IF YOU GUESSED B, THE ELEPHANT,
YOU'D BE WRONG.
WHILE THE ELEPHANT
AND FOR THAT MATTER
OUR LAST CHOICE THE WALLABY
BOTH DO HAVE LEAVES
AS PART OF THEIR DIET,
THEY ALSO FEED ON A WIDE VARIETY
OF OTHER VEGETATION
SUCH AS GRASS, VEGETABLES, HAY
AND OTHER TYPES OF FOLIAGE.
SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER?
WELL, IF YOU ANSWERED A
THE SLOTH,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE SLOTH HAS A REPUTATION
FOR BEING SLEEPY
AND IT'S VERY WELL DESERVED
AND IT'S ALL BECAUSE
OF THAT LEAF MUNCHING.
SO THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE
TELLS YOU TO EAT YOUR GREENS
BECAUSE THEY'RE GOOD FOR YOU,
REMIND THEM THAT A DIET
OF LEAVES CAN BE DEADLY.

(SCREAMING)

The announcer says PLANTS DON'T WANT ANIMALS
STEALING THEIR LEAVES,
SO TREES DEFEND THEMSELVES
FROM ATTACK
BY PUMPING THEIR LEAVES
FULL OF BITTER CHEMICALS.

A sloth in the water says BOO.
(SNORING)

The announcer says SO IF YOU WANT TO LIVE
ON NOTHING BUT LEAVES,
YOU CAN EITHER EAT
MASSIVE AMOUNTS
TO GET ENOUGH ENERGY
TO SURVIVE.
OR YOU EAT LESS,
AND USE LESS ENERGY.
AND NOTHING USES LESS ENERGY
THAN THE SLOTH.
IT EATS A VERY LOW CALORIE DIET,
BUT THEN IT DOESN'T NEED
MUCH ENERGY TO SURVIVE.
THE SLOTH IS THE MASTER
OF CHILLAXING.

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

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says WILDEBEEST ARE ANTELOPES
AND BELONG
TO THE BOVIDAE FAMILY,
WHICH ALSO INCLUDES COWS,
GOATS AND SHEEP.
WILDEBEEST ARE ONE OF THE MOST
ABUNDANT LARGE MAMMALS
IN AFRICA,
AND THERE IS THOUGHT TO BE
AROUND 1.5 MILLION
MIGRATORY INDIVIDUALS
IN THE SERENGETI ALONE,
WHICH WOULD FORM
THE GREATEST CONCENTRATION
OF WILD GRAZING ANIMALS
ON EARTH.
THE WILDEBEEST IS ALSO CALLED
THE GNU.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says WOW, WILDEBEEST ARE AWESOME.
HUGE, POWERFUL,
FASCINATING ANIMALS.
JUST LIKE OUR DOG TODAY.
OH WAIT, HUGO IS NOT HUGE
OR PARTICULARLY POWERFUL
BUT I AM PRETTY FASCINATED
TO SEE
HOW THEY'RE DOING
AT TEACHING HIM TO COME
WHEN HE'S CALLED.
LET'S CHECK IN WITH DR. KATRINA.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
GABBY AND I ARE TEACHING HUGO
TO COME WHEN HE'S CALLED.
NOW YOU HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB
OVER A SHORT DISTANCE ON A LEAD.
NOW WE'RE GOING TO DO
OFF THE LEAD
OVER A SHORT DISTANCE.
SO THE KEY IS LOTS
OF ENCOURAGEMENT
AND LETTING HIM KNOW
THAT YOU HAVE GOT TREATS.
SO WE'VE GIVEN YOU
A FEW TREATS THERE.
I'LL TAKE HIM OFF THE LEAD.
IN THE MEANWHILE CAN YOU SHOW
HIM YOU HAVE GOT THE TREAT?

Gabby says THERE IS TREATS HERE.

Katrina says OKAY NOW TAKE A COUPLE
OF STEPS BACK FOR ME.
GET HIS ATTENTION.
COME BACK.
READY?
GO.

Gabby says HUGO COME HERE.

The announcer says PERFECT, SO LOTS OF TREATS
WHEN HE COMES.
WELL DONE, GABBY.
OKAY, THAT'S STEP TWO.
WE'LL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO WORK ON THIS
OVER A LONGER DISTANCE.
BUT PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU ARE
GOING TO TEACH YOUR DOG TRICKS
OR DO ANY TRAINING AT HOME
MAKE SURE
YOU HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION.

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

A caption reads "It’s Bad Pun Pony!"

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

Bad Pun Pony says DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COW
THAT COULDN'T GIVE ANY MILK?
IT WAS AN UDDER-FAILURE.
(LAUGHS)

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT DO YOU GET FROM
A BAD TEMPERED SHARK?
AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE.
(LAUGHS)

Kids says BAD PUN PONY.
YAY!

Alfie says PRICELESS.
WHAT A JOKESTER.
WE'LL HAVE MORE FUN
WITH OUR FUNNY PONY
ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW, TIME FOR A CHANGE
OF SCENERY.
LET'S GO EXPLORE
THE AMAZING ANIMAL KINGDOM.
ITS TIME TO TEST
YOUR KNOWLEDGE
WITH ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

A caption reads "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says IS DEADLIEST FOR HUMANS?
IS IT A THE TERRIFYING
YET AWE INSPIRING SEA PREDATOR
THE SHARK?
YIKES.
B, THE TINY BUZZING
BARBECUE-WREAKING
BLOOD-SUCKING BANDIT
THE MOSQUITO?
OR C THE BACKYARD BADDY
THE VENOMOUS, SLITHERY,
AND SNEAKY AUSTRALIAN
BROWN SNAKE?
IF YOU ANSWERED B
YOU ARE CORRECT.
MOSQUITOS KILL UP TO
A MILLION PEOPLE EACH YEAR.
THAT'S RIGHT ONE MILLION PEOPLE
ARE TAKEN OUT BY THESE
TINY LITTLE BLOODSUCKERS.
MOSQUITOES LIVE AROUND THE WORLD
IN ALMOST EVERY TYPE
OF ECOSYSTEM
AND THEY LOVE TO BREED
IN STAGNANT, STANDING
AND FRESH WATER.
THE MOSQUITO IS THE MOTHER
OF ALL BITERS
BECAUSE IT'S ONLY THE FEMALE
THAT USES HER AMAZING PROBOSCIS
TO SUCK BLOOD.
HMM, PROBOSCIS.
IT'S HUMAN BLOOD
THAT NOURISHES MOSQUITO EGGS
AND THE FEMALE MOSQUITO
HAS THE MOST COMPLICATED
BITING APPARATUS IMAGINABLE.
IT'S A COMBINATION
OF A SWISS-ARMY KNIFE,
A HYPODERMIC NEEDLE
AND A VACUUM CLEANER.
BUT ONCE SHE'S TAPPED
INTO A BLOOD VESSEL,
PROBLEMS FOR HUMANS
HAVE ONLY JUST BEGUN,
FOR TRAVELLING IN HER SALIVA
ARE SOME DEADLY HITCHHIKERS.
THERE ARE A HOST OF DISEASES
TRANSMITTED BY MOSQUITOS.
THE DEADLIEST IS MALARIA.
EVEN TODAY, MALARIA SPREAD
BY MOSQUITOES
WILL KILL ONE MILLION PEOPLE
ON EARTH.
THEIR BITE CAUSES
MORE HUMAN DEATHS
THAN ANY OTHER CREATURE.
THAT'S WHY THEY'RE
THE DEADLIEST ANIMAL
KNOWN TO MAN.

Alfie says WHAT AMAZING CREATURES.
SO COOL.
ALRIGHT, CREATURE FANS,
STILL TO COME ON TODAY'S SHOW.
AN AMAZING ANIMAL FACT.
WE MEET TODAY'S PET AND TELL
GUEST 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.

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says THE CICADA
DOESN'T TECHNICALLY USE
ITS MOUTH TO SING?
THEY MAKE THIS EXCEPTIONAL NOISE
WITH A PAIR OF RIBBED MEMBRANES
AT THE BASE OF THE ABDOMEN.
BY CONTRACTING AND RELEASING
INTERNAL MUSCLES
THE MEMBRANE FLEXES.
IT PRODUCES A PULSE OF SOUND,
WHICH IS THEN AMPLIFIED
THROUGH THEIR BODIES.
ON EACH TREE THERE
MAY BE HUNDREDS OF CICADAS
AND MANY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS
THROUGHOUT THE FOREST.
THE NOISE IS ACTUALLY
A MATING CALL
BELTED OUT BY MALES.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALL RIGHT, CREATURE MANIACS
WE'VE COME TO THE PART
OF THE SHOW
I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO.
WHERE I GET TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR SPECIAL PET
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE,
BUT FIRST THERE'S THIS.

A clip shows a rat running in a wheel.

((MUSIC PLAYS))

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie says INTRODUCING ANIKO.
SHE'S BROUGHT IN HER PET RABBIT
TO SHOW US.
HELLO, ANIKO.

Aniko is around 6 and has long slightly wavy blond hair in a half do. She wears blue shorts and a white T-shirt.

Aniko says HI, ALFIE.

Alfie says HOW ARE YOU TODAY?

Aniko says GOOD.

Alfie says YEAH, SO AHH WHO'S IN THE BOX.

Aniko says UMM MIMI, MY PET RABBIT.

Alfie says WHAT KIND OF A RABBIT IS MIMI?

Aniko says UMM A MINI FLOP.

Alfie says A MINI FLOP.

Aniko says YEAH.

Alfie says YEAH RIGHT.

Aniko says THAT'S WHY UMM
HE'S GOT FLOPPY EARS.

Alfie says SO A MINI LOP RABBIT.

Aniko says YEAH.

Alfie says MINI LOP RABBIT.
MINI LOPS ARE ONE OF THE MOST
POPULAR BREED OF RABBIT
IN THE WORLD.
IT'S SMALL SIZE AND FLOPPY EARS
CERTAINLY MAKE IT APPEALING
AND MANY FANCIERS FALL
FOR THE CHARMS
OF THIS CUTE BUNNY.
THE MOST COMMON COLOURS
ARE BLUE, BLACK AND BROWN.
THE MINI LOP IS BRIGHT,
CHEERFUL AND PLAYFUL.
RABBITS DON'T NATURALLY
EAT CARROTS.
THAT'S A MYTH.
A RABBIT'S DIET CONSISTS
MAINLY OF DARK LEAFY GREENS
AND SPECIAL PELLETS.
CARROT AND APPLE
ARE TOO HIGH IN SUGAR
AND SHOULD ONLY BE GIVEN
AS A TREAT.
MINI LOPS CAN LIVE
FROM FIVE TO TEN YEARS.
MINI LOP RABBIT.
SO DO YOU HAVE
ANY BROTHERS AND SISTERS?
DO YOU WANT TO TELL ME
ABOUT THAT?

Aniko says MIMI'S GOT A BROTHER.
THAT'S A GUINEA PIG.

Alfie says YEAH.

Aniko says AND THE GUINEA PIG
HAS A SISTER, THAT'S THE DOGGY.

Alfie says YEAH.
SO YOU GOT THEM
BECAUSE YOU WANTED A FAMILY?

Aniko says YEAH, BIGGER FAMILY.

Alfie says YEAH.
HOW DO YOU LOOK AFTER HIM?

Aniko says WE FEED HIM AND WE NORMALLY
UMM BRUSH HIM AND...

Alfie says WHAT DO YOU DO TO PLAY
WITH HIM?

Alfie says WE LET HIM HOP AROUND
AND WE LET HIM PLAY.

Alfie says YEAH. DOES HE HOP REALLY HIGH?

Aniko says YEAH, WHEN HE IS HAPPY.

Alfie says HOW HIGH DOES HE HOP?

Aniko moves her hand over her head and says WHEN HE IS ON THE COUCH
HE WILL HOP THAT HIGH I THINK
OR THAT HIGH.

Alfie says WOW.

Aniko says OR MAYBE HE'LL HOP HIGHER.

Alfie says WHAT DOES MIMI MEAN?

Aniko says EAR IN JAPANESE.

Alfie says MIMI IS JAPANESE FOR EAR.

Aniko says YEAH.

Alfie says WHAT IS THE JAPANESE WORD
FOR RABBIT?

Aniko says USAGI.

Alfie says USAGI.
RIGHT, SO MIMI THE USAGI.

Aniko says YES.

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

Aniko says THANK YOU, ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING US
TO YOUR SUPPER CUTE RABBIT MIMI.

Aniko says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Alfie says SPEAKING OF CUTE,
CHECK THIS OUT.

(MONKEY CALLING)

The announcer says IT'S TIME TO MONKEY AROUND.
AS WE LOOK
AT OUR NEXT CREATURE,
ASIA'S ONLY GREAT APE:
THE ORANGUTAN.
ORANGUTANS ARE SUPER FUZZY,
SUPER SMART AND SUPER GENTLE.
THEY ALSO HAVE
SUPER ADORABLE BABIES.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
AND THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says SO CUTE.
IF YOU NEED ANOTHER DOSE
OF CUTENESS
TUNE IN ON THE NEXT EPISODE.
WE'LL HAVE MORE ADORABLE THEN.
BUT NEXT ON THE SHOW
IT'S TIME TO EXPLORE
THE ENORMOUS CREATURE KINGDOM
AND FIND OUT
SOME FASCINATING FACTS
IN CREATURE QUIZ.

A caption reads "Which of these animals..."

The announcer says RELIES ON THEIR SENSE
OF SMELL
TO FIND A MATE?
IS IT A THE PROUD
AND PRANCING PEACOCK?

(SQUAWKING)

The announcer says B THE WISTFUL WALLABY?

(CALLING)

The announcer says OH STOP BEING SO CUTE.
OR IS IT C THE RIOTOUS RHINO?
NO OFFENCE.
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
YOU'RE CORRECT.
THE RHINO USES SMELL
TO FIND A MATE.
A MALE RHINO IS
SO NEAR-SIGHTED
THAT HE HAS NO WAY
OF SEEING A FEMALE RHINO
AND NEEDS TO RELY
ON HIS OTHER SENSES INSTEAD.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT
A RHINOCEROS
HAS A SENSE OF SMELL
TO RIVAL A BLOODHOUND.
THE BAD NEWS IS THAT
A MALE RHINO NEEDS TO BE ABLE
TO SMELL THE SCENT
OF A FEMALE RHINO'S WEE
IN ORDER TO FIND HER.
WHAT'S WORSE
IS THE FEMALE RHINOS
ARE AS BLIND AS THE MALE,
AND JUST AS UNFRIENDLY.
IF ANYTHING GETS TOO CLOSE
FOR COMFORT,
SHE'LL CHARGE FIRST
AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER.
SO IT'S NO WONDER THAT
WHEN A MALE RHINO
HAS SNIFFED OUT
A POTENTIAL MATE,
HE APPROACHES WITH CAUTION.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says says says OM!
LOOK INSIDE YOURSELF
AND FIND YOUR HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says CAN YOU SEE YOUR HAPPY PLACE,
BOB?

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says says WHEN YOU ARE IN YOUR HAPPY
PLACE...

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DO YOU NEED SOME HELP
LOOKING BOB?
TURN AROUND
SO I CAN TAKE A PEEK.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says says INHALE YOUR SURROUNDINGS.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says DON'T INHALE TOO MUCH, BOB,
YOU MIGHT JUST CHOKE
ON A FLY OR SOMETHING.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says says BE THE KING OF YOUR OWN CALM
HAPPY PLACE.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says ALL HAIL BOB, KING OF CALM.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 punches Praying Mantis Bob 2.

Praying Mantis Bob 2 says BOB, OW.

Praying Mantis Bob 1 says says GET YOUR FACE OUT
OF MY HAPPY PLACE.

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

A caption reads "Did you know?"

The announcer says THE FOSSA IS THE LARGEST
CARNIVOROUS MAMMAL
ON THE ISLAND OF MADAGASCAR?
BEING THE TOP PREDATOR
ON THE ISLAND,
THE FOSSA HUNTS BOTH
DAY AND NIGHT
AND MAINLY EATS LEMURS.
WATCH OUT LEMURS.
THESE CUNNING CREATURES
ARE ALSO BUILT
TO BE AGILE CLIMBERS:
THEIR LONG, SLENDER TAIL
PROVIDES BALANCE
AS IT MOVES THROUGH THE TREES
AND ITS SEMI RETRACTABLE CLAWS
AND FLEXIBLE ANKLES ALLOW IT
TO CLIMB
UP AND DOWN TREES HEAD-FIRST.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT

Alfie says WHAT A FUN FACT.
ALL RIGHT CREATURE FANS,
TIME TO GET A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL
WITH A BEAR WHO LIKES TO BROOD.
HE LIKES TO WEIGHT UP
AND CHEW OVER
AND STUDY AND REVIEW.
YES IT'S OUR FAVOURITE
BAMBOO-EATING, ROLLIE POLY,
ADORABLE PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say PONDERING PANDA!
THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda lying on its back says YOU KNOW WHAT MUMMY PANDA
ALWAYS TOLD ME?
YOU HAVE TO WAIT AN HOUR
AFTER EATING TO GO SWIMMING
OTHERWISE YOU'LL GET A CRAMP.
BUT LIKE, WHAT ABOUT FISH?
HOW CAN THEY WAIT AN HOUR
BEFORE GOING SWIMMING?
THEY'RE LIKE, ALWAYS SWIMMING.
AND DOES THE EATING RULE WORK
THE OTHER WAY AROUND?
I MEAN, DO FROGS HAVE TO WAIT
AN HOUR AFTER EATING
BEFORE THEY CAN HOP OUT
OF THE WATER?

Alfie says WOW MY.
AND THAT, MY CREATURE MANIACS
WAS THE PONDERING PANDA.
HE'S WEIRD, HE'S WONDERFUL
AND HE IS LOVEABLE.
LET'S MOVE ON.
TIME NOW FOR THE FINAL PART
IN TODAY'S DOG TRICKS.
LET'S SEE IF GABBY AND HUGO
CAN NAIL STEP THREE.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says GABBY HAS BEEN DOING
A FANTASTIC JOB OF TEACHING HUGO
TO COME WHEN HE'S CALLED.
WE STARTED OFF JUST
ON A VERY SHORT DISTANCE
WITH HIM ON THE LEAD.
AND THEN WE'VE MOVED ON
TO TAKING HIM OFF THE LEAD
OVER A SHORT DISTANCE.
BUT NOW A BIT MORE OF A TEST,
HE NEEDS TO GO
A FURTHER DISTANCE
OFF THE LEAD.
SO WHAT I WILL GET YOU TO DO
IS SHOW HIM
THAT YOU HAVE GOT TREATS.

Gabby says HUGO LOOK I HAVE GOT
ALL THESE TREATS FOR YOU.

Katrina says AND A TOY AS WELL, THAT'S GOOD.
AND LOTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT.
SO GO A LITTLE BIT FURTHER.
I WILL LET HIM OFF.
KEEP HIS ATTENTION ON YOU.

Gabby says HUGO.

Katrina says REALLY ENCOURAGE HIM.
READY?
OKAY, GO.

Gabby says COME HERE, HUGO.

Katrina says THERE YOU GO.
PERFECT.
WELL DONE, GABBY.
ARE YOU PROUD OF HIM?

Gabby says YES.

Katrina says HE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB.
IN FACT YOU BOTH HAVE DONE
A GREAT JOB.
HAVE YOU ENJOYED TODAY?

Gabby says YES, IT WAS REALLY FUN.

Katrina says WHAT DID YOU LIKE
ABOUT TRAINING DOGS?

Gabby says UMM WELL THEY'RE NOT EASY
TO TRAIN
BUT YOU CAN KEEP ON TRYING.

Katrina says YOU CAN AND THEY GET BETTER
THE MORE YOU PRACTICE
AND IT IS GOOD FUN TIME
FOR YOU TO SHARE TOGETHER.
I REALLY HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED
TODAY'S DOG TRICK.
I'LL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE.

Alfie says WELL DONE TO FASCINATING
LITTLE HUGO.
HE'S A COOL, COOL DOG.
I THINK GABBY AND HUGO ARE GOING
TO HAVE GREAT FUN
DOING MORE TRAINING.
WHAT AN AWESOME
ANIMAL PACKED SHOW IT'S BEEN:
SLOTHS AND RHINOCEROS'S, CICADAS
AND CUTE ORANGUTAN BABIES.
YOU KNOW, WE REALLY DO LIVE
ON AN AMAZING PLANET.
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
IF YOU WANT MORE ANIMAL MADNESS,
YOU KNOW WHERE TO COME.
I AM ALFIE AND JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.
