(rock'n'roll music plays)

In an animated frame, fast clips show 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 CHECK OUT SOME RUDE SPITTING
LLAMAS,
SOME COLOURFUL PAINTED STORKS,
AND SOME UNBELIEVABLE
BUTTERFLIES.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
WE GET CUDDLY WITH EMPEROR
PENGUINS AND WE FIND OUT
IF CHICKENS MAKE GOOD PETS
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS MORE.
BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST LET'S
KICK IT OFF WITH DR. KATRINA
AND HER 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.
THESE ARE THE AMAZING
WONDER DOGS
AND TODAY WE'RE GOING TO SHOW
YOU HOW TO TEACH
YOUR DOG TO SIT.
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 COVER
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.
HER FAVOURITE TRICKS ARE
JUMPING,
DOING HANDSTANDS AND SKIPPING.

Clips show the dog doing its favourite activities.

Katrina says HER NAUGHTIEST DEED: JUMPING UP
ONTO THE KITCHEN BENCH
TO REACH FOOD.
PET HATES: WELL SHE HATES HAVING
SMELLY THINGS WASHED OFF HER.
THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE SKETCH:
QUIRKY, MISCHIEVOUS
AND ENERGETIC.
AND NOW LET'S SEE SKETCH
DEMONSTRATE.

A caption reads "Learn to sit."

Katrina says SKETCH.
SIT IS ONE
OF THE FIRST BEHAVIOURS YOU
SHOULD TEACH YOUR DOG.
YOU CAN TEACH A PUPPY
FROM EIGHT WEEKS OF AGE.
IT'S POLITE BEHAVIOUR
AND IT'S ALSO THE FOUNDATION
FOR A LOT OF OTHER TRICKS.
SIT.
GOOD GIRL.
WELL NOW WE'VE SEEN AN
EXPERT DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO'S HERE TO TRAIN
THEIR DOG.

Katrina sits on a bench with Max and his dog.

Max is around 8, with short light brown hair and wears blue shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Katrina says I'M HERE WITH MAX
AND HIS LOVELY DOG FRANKIE.
TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
FRANKIE.

Max says AHH SHE'S A BEAGLE CROSS
CAVALIER.

Katrina says YEP.
AND HOW OLD IS SHE?

Max says SHE IS A YEAR OLD.

Katrina says AND IS SHE WELL BEHAVED AT HOME
OR IS SHE A BIT NAUGHTY?

Max says AHH A BIT NAUGHTY SOMETIMES.

Katrina says WHAT KIND
OF NAUGHTY THINGS DOES SHE DO?

Max says LIKE JUMP ON THE TRAMPOLINE
SOMETIMES.

Katrina says OH DOES SHE?
THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN.
BEAGLES RESPOND WELL TO A LOT
OF TRAINING.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN SOME
TRICKS WITH HER?

Max says YES, PLEASE.

Katrina says OKAY, LET'S GET TO IT.
TODAY MAX AND I ARE GOING TO
TEACH FRANKIE HOW TO SIT.
NOW THIS IS A BASIC COMMAND
BUT IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT ONE.
SO STEP ONE REALLY IS
TO GET PREPARED.
WE NEED LOTS OF TREATS AND
I FIND USING A BUM BAG
OR A TREAT POUCH
IS REALLY USEFUL
BECAUSE THEN YOU CAN FREE UP
YOUR HANDS.
AND THEN WE'RE JUST GOING TO
START WITH FRANKIE ON THE LEAD.
OKAY STEP ONE IS PRETTY EASY.
WE'LL BE BACK WITH STEP TWO JUST
TO LURE HER TO SIT DOWN.

Alfie says WE'LL SEE HOW MAX
AND FRANKIE ARE GETTING
ON A BIT LATER IN THE SHOW
BUT NOW CREATURE MANIACS IT'S
TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW...BUTTERFLIES CAN BE FOUND ON
EVERY CONTINENT
EXCEPT ANTARCTICA?

A penguin says OH REALLY.

The announcer says THEY HAVE FOUR WINGS
AND THEIR EYES ARE MADE
OF 6,000 LENSES THAT CAN SEE
ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT.

A voice says WOW.

The announcer says TO GROW INTO AN ADULT THEY GO
THROUGH FOUR STAGES:
EGG, LARVAE, PUPAE AND ADULT.
HA HA HA PUPAE.
DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF
BUTTERFLY
THE LIFECYCLE
MAY TAKE ANYWHERE
FROM ONE MONTH TO A WHOLE YEAR.

A butterfly says SHAKE A LEG.

The announcer says AND THAT'S...AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says 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?

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Mantis Bob 1 beat boxes as Mantis Bob 2 meditates.

(BEAT BOXING)

Mantis Bob 2 says OMM, OMM.
(BEAT BOXING)

Mantis Bob 2 says OMM.
(BEAT BOXING)

Mantis Bob 2 says BREATHE IN WITH CALMNESS.

Mantis Bob 1 says HE'S BREATHIN',
BRE-BRE-BRETHING

Mantis Bob 2 says BREATHE OUT THE ANGER.
(SINGING)

Mantis Bob 2 says THEN RAISE YOUR ARMS CALMLY
AND SAY HELLO TO THE SUN

Mantis Bob 1 sings B TO THE O TO THE B
HE'S CALM, HE'S CALM
AIN'T NO NEED FOR ALARM
HE'S DOING SOME YOGA LIKE
A COBRA
HE'S-- OW.

Mantis Bob 2 punches him and says THAT WAS MY SOLO.

Mantis Bob 1 says OUCH CHICA OW BOB

Back in the studio, Alfie says 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 ONLY NATIVE TO THE
EASTERN SIDE OF AUSTRALIA?
IS IT A THE SWAMP WALLABY?
B THE ECHIDNA?
ALSO KNOWN AS
THE SPINY ANTEATER.
OR C THE KANGAROO?
AUSTRALIA'S MOST WELL-KNOWN
NATIVE ANIMAL.
IF YOU ANSWERED B THE ECHIDNA,
SORRY YOU ARE INCORRECT.
IN FACT,
THE PRICKLY ECHIDNA IS
AUSTRALIA'S MOST WIDESPREAD
NATIVE MAMMAL,
FOUND IN ALMOST ALL HABITATS,
FROM SNOW COVERED MOUNTAINS
TO DESERTS.
BUT IF YOU ANSWERED A
THE SWAMP WALLABY
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THEY ARE ONLY NATIVE TO THE
EASTERN SIDE OF AUSTRALIA.
HERE WE ARE, IN SEARCH
OF THE ELUSIVE SWAMP WALLABY.
OH, THERE'S ONE NOW.
THESE GUYS IN PARTICULAR HAVE
TURNED QUITE SHY,
BUT WE CAN STILL SPOT THEM
THROUGH THESE TREES.
THE SWAMP WALLABY USUALLY
INHABITS THICK UNDERGROWTH
IN FORESTS AND WOODLANDS,
OR SHELTERS DURING THE DAY
IN THICK GRASS OR FERNS,
USUALLY EMERGING AT NIGHT
TO FEED.
NOW ONE QUESTION YOU MIGHT HAVE
IS 'WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A WALLABY
AND A KANGAROO?'
WELL, KANGAROOS AND WALLABIES
ARE VERY SIMILAR MARSUPIALS.
THEIR NATIVE TERRITORIES
OFTEN OVERLAP,
BUT WALLABIES ARE GENERALLY
MUCH, MUCH SMALLER
THAN KANGAROOS WITH A COLOUR
PATTERN THAT IS MORE VARIED.
THE LIFESPAN
OF A KANGAROO IS ALSO MUCH
LONGER AND THESE LARGER ANIMALS
TAKE LONGER TO GROW,
AND BECOME MORE INDEPENDENT THAN
THEIR SMALLER RELATIVES.
ONE EXAMPLE
OF A DISTINGUISHING FEATURE THAT
SETS APART THE SWAMP WALLABY
FROM BOTH THE WALLABY
AND THE KANGAROO
IS A LIGHT COLOURED CHEEK STRIPE
AS YOU CAN SEE HERE.
IN THE WILD,
THE SWAMP WALLABY IS FOUND
ACROSS A LARGE PART
OF AUSTRALIA:
FROM THE NORTHERNMOST AREAS
OF CAPE YORK IN QUEENSLAND,
DOWN THE ENTIRE EAST COAST
AND AROUND
TO SOUTHWESTERN VICTORIA.
SO THEY REALLY DO GET AROUND.

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...PAINTED STORKS
SEARCH FOR FISH
IN SHALLOW WATERS.
WITH THEIR BILLS HALF OPEN AND
SHAKING THEIR HEADS BACK
AND FORTH,
THEY WILL OCCASIONALLY USE
A WING TO DIRECT THEIR FISH
TOWARD THEIR OPEN BILL.
THEY NEST IN COLONIES WITH OTHER
STORKS, IBISES, SPOONBILLS,
CORMORANTS AND HERONS.
WHILE YOUNG STORKS ARE ABLE
TO CALL LOUDLY,
BY EIGHTEEN MONTHS THEY BECOME
PRACTICALLY VOICELESS.
THE PAINTED STORK CAN LIVE
FOR TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS.
NOW THAT'S... AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says DO YOU THINK YOU COULD TEACH
A STORK TO SIT?
COULD THEY EVEN SIT DOWN WITH
THOSE LONG LEGS?
I KNOW AN ANIMAL THAT LOVES
TO SIT, DOGS.
BUT TEACHING A DOG TO SIT DOWN
WHEN YOU ASK
IS THE REAL TRICK RIGHT?
LET'S SEE HOW MAX AND FRANKIE
ARE GETTING ON WITH THAT.
BACK TO YOU DR. KATRINA
IN DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says TODAY WE'RE TEACHING FRANKIE
TO SIT.
NOW THIS IS A BASIC COMMAND
BUT A REALLY IMPORTANT ONE
BECAUSE WE WANT ALL DOGS TO
HAVE GOOD MANNERS
AROUND THE HOUSE.
AND IT'S ESSENTIAL AS A STARTING
POINT FOR A LOT OF OTHER TRICKS.
SO WE'RE GOING TO CALL
FRANKIE TO US.
FRANKIE, COME, COME,
COME, COME.
AND THEN I AM HOLDING THAT TREAT
OVER HER NOSE.
WAIT TILL HIS FEET GO DOWN.
OVER HER NOSE.
AND THEN SHE GETS THE TREAT
WHEN ALL FOUR FEET AND BOTTOM
ARE ON THE GROUND OKAY.
SO CALL HER OUT.
TREAT UP.
NO, TREAT UP.
THERE, GOOD GIRL.
SO WHEN HER BOTTOM GOES DOWN
THAT'S WHEN SHE GETS THE TREAT.
SHE DOESN'T GET THE TREAT IF SHE
JUMPS UP.
SO LET ME GIVE YOU ONE.
CALL HER.

Max says FRANKIE.

Katrina says YEP GO.
PERFECT.
WE'LL SEE YOU SOON
FOR THE NEXT 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'S A COW'S FAVOURITE PLACE?
THE MOO-SEUM.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.
WHAT DO FISH TAKE TO STAY
HEALTHY?
VITAMIN-SEA.

A rabbit laughs.

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 CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS CONSIDERED
A MASTER OF DISGUISE?
IS IT A THE SCALY, BEADY,
COLOUR-CHANGING CHAMELEON?
OR IS IT B THE SHAPE SHIFTING,
LEAF MUNCHING,
OCCASIONALLY WEIRD LOOKING
CATERPILLAR?
OR C THE CORAL LOVING MOTHER
OF ALL CLAMS THE GIANT CLAM?
WELL,
IF YOU SAID B THE CATERPILLAR,
YOU'D BE RIGHT.
THE CATERPILLAR TRULY
IS THE MASTER OF DISGUISE.
CATERPILLARS CAN CHANGE NOT ONLY
THEIR CLOTHES,
BUT THEIR BODIES THANKS TO THE
WONDERS OF METAMORPHOSIS.
AFTER TWO WEEKS OF HIDING,
THE CATERPILLAR FINALLY HAS
A CHANCE TO LEAVE IT'S PAST
BEHIND FOREVER.
BUT NOT EVERY FLOWER
IS A SAFE PERCH.
THIS GENTLE, WAVING PETAL IS
NOT WHAT IT SEEMS.
THE ORCHARD MANTIS MIMICS
THE COLOUR AND MOVEMENTS
OF THE FLOWER IT'S SITTING ON,
WAITING PATIENTLY FOR DINNER.
CAREFUL MOVE TOO SOON
AND YOU'LL GIVE YOUR GAME AWAY.
IT'S BEEN A LONG WEEK BETWEEN
MEALS,
SO ONCE THE ORCHARD MANTIS
HAS ITS VICTIM
IN ITS CLUTCHES IT WILL EAT
EVERYTHING
EXCEPT ITS SCALY WINGS.
WITH THE ARRIVAL OF SPRING
IN THE FOREST,
DEDICATED FOLLOWERS OF FASHION
KNOW THAT IT'S TIME TO CHANGE
INTO NEW SEASON'S TRENDS.
IF IT DOESN'T KEEP UP WITH THE
LATEST WOODLAND STYLE IT WILL
BECOME A REAL FASHION VICTIM.
THAT GREEN SUIT HAS GOT TO GO,
BECAUSE IN THIS FOREST
THE CRITICS ARE UNFORGIVING.
(SCREAMS)

The announcer says LUCKILY, THE CATERPILLAR KEEPS
IT'S WARDROBE RIGHT UP TO DATE
BY CASTING OFF IT'S SKIN
AT LEAST FOUR TIMES.
EACH MOULT GIVES IT MORE ROOM
TO GROW
AND LETS IT COLOUR COORDINATE
WITH THE ENVIRONMENT.
THIS CATERPILLAR HAS GONE
FOR THE GRUNGE LOOK
AND DISGUISED ITSELF AS A BIRD
DROPPING.
THE IDEA IS TO MAKE YOURSELF
LOOK ANYTHING BUT APPETIZING.
THE ONLY TROUBLE IS THAT BIRD
DROPPINGS DON'T MOVE.

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
FAVORITE BLACK AND WHITE BEAR
THE FANTASTIC PONDERING PANDA.
ALL THAT STILL TO COME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW...LLAMAS CAN COMMUNICATE
A VARIETY OF ANGRY MESSAGES
SIMPLY BY CHANGING THE CONTENT
OF THEIR SPITTING?
THEIR COUSINS THE VICUNA EXHIBIT
A SIMILAR RUDENESS.
DURING THE BREEDING SEASON
GROUPS OF WILD BACHELORS
ROAM INTO THE TERRITORY
OF ESTABLISHED HERDS.
THE DOMINANT MALE WILL SPEND
HOURS CHASING AWAY
ANY UNWELCOME ADVANCES
ON HIS FEMALES.
AND WHEN THE BOYS DON'T GET
THEIR WAY,
THEY SPIT THEIR FRUSTRATION.
LLAMAS HAVE EVEN BEEN KNOWN TO
SPIT AT HUMANS TOO.
AND THAT'S...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.
(MUSIC AND KARATE SOUNDS)

A clip shows a cat trying to catch a spring toy fish.

(music plays)

A caption reads "It's pet and tell."

Alfie sits in the studio with Molly and her pet.

Molly is around 11, with straight light brown hair in pigtail braids and wears orange shorts and a teal T-shirt.

Alfie says INTRODUCING MOLLY.
SHE HAS BROUGHT IN HER
PET CHICKEN TO SHOW US.
HELLO MOLLY.

Molly says HELLO ALFIE.

Alfie says WELCOME TO THE SHOW.
AHH WHO IS THIS.

Molly says IT'S GERTRUDE.

Alfie says GERTRUDE THE CHICKEN
AND AHH WHAT KIND
OF CHICKEN IS GERTRUDE?

Molly says SHE IS A BELGIUM BANTAM D'UCCLE.

Alfie says A WHAT?

Molly says A BELGIUM BANTAM D'UCCLE.

Alfie says WOW THAT'S A BIT OF A MOUTHFUL.
SO AHH WHAT MADE YOU COME UP
WITH THE NAME GERTRUDE?

Molly says I JUST WANTED TO CALL SOMETHING
GERTRUDE.

Alfie says YEAH SO YOU WERE LIKE
I'LL CALL MY CHICKEN GERTRUDE.
BELGIUM BANTAM CHICKENS.
BELGIUM BANTAMS ARE SWEET
AND CUDDLY.
THEY HAVE A WIDE VARIETY
OF FEATHER COLOURS, PATTERNS
AND SHADES.
A LOT OF PEOPLE KEEP THESE
CHICKENS AS COMPANIONS,
WITHOUT UTILIZING THEIR EGG
LAYING.
THESE CHICKENS HAVE BEARDS
AND BOOTS THAT ARE A FLUFFY
COLLECTION OF FEATHERS AROUND
THEIR NECK AND FEET.
THEY CAN WEIGH UP TO 750 GRAMS.
THEIR EGGS ARE TINY
AND CREAM COLOURED.
THE BELGIUM BANTAM CHICKEN
CAN LIVE UP TO FIVE YEARS.
BELGIUM BANTAM CHICKENS.
TELL US ABOUT GERTRUDE.
HAS SHE GOT A BIT
OF AN INTERESTING PERSONALITY?

Molly says SHE'S LOUD AND INDEPENDENT.

Alfie says SO GERTRUDE IS A BIT OF
A LOUD MOUTH.
HOW IS SHE LOUD?

Molly says SHE SQUAWKS.

Alfie says CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT
A SITUATION WHERE SHE WAS
SQUAWKING REALLY LOUD?

Molly says WHEN SHE WANTS TO GET OUT
OF THE COUP IN THE MORNING.

Alfie says YEAH SHE JUST SQUAWKS.
COME HERE MOLLY, I WANT OUT.
SO DOES GERTRUDE ATTRACT
FOXES AT ALL?

Molly says NO BUT THERE HAVE BEEN FOXES
IN THE AREA.

Alfie says SO YOU HAVE TO BE
ON THE LOOK OUT.

Molly says YEAH

Alfie says AND SO WHAT DO YOU
FEED HER?

Molly says SOME CABBAGE.
LOTS OF FOOD SCRAPS,
SCRATCH MIX,
SUN FLOWER SEEDS AND TREATS
FOOD LIKE CAKES AND...

Alfie says SHE EATS CAKES?
LIKE WHAT KIND OF CAKES?

Molly says ALL CAKES.

Alfie says WOW.
THAT'S REALLY INTERESTING.
A CHICKEN THAT EATS CAKES.
THAT'S REALLY COOL.
SO DOES GERTRUDE KNOW
ANY TRICKS?

Molly says YES SHE CAN PERCH ON MY ARM.

Alfie says REALLY?
WOW THAT'S AMAZING.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US
ON THE SHOW TODAY MOLLY.

Molly says THANKS ALFIE.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU FOR INTRODUCING US
TO GERTIE THE CHICKEN.
SPEAKING OF AMAZING,
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says ANTARCTICA, HOME TO ONE
ON THE PLANET.
OF THE MOST AWESOME ANIMALS

A penguin says REALLY?

The announcer says THE DEEP-SEA DIVING,
UNDERWATER BALLERINAS
OF THE SOUTH.

A walrus says NICE.

The announcer says AND PARENTS TO ONE
OF THE COOLEST CHICKS
ON THE PLANET.

A chick says YE HA.

The announcer says THE BABY EMPEROR PENGUIN.

People says OH.

The announcer says THEY'RE PUDGY, FLUFFY
AND TOTALLY UNCOORDINATED
AND... ..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...IS THE BEST CLIMBER?
IS IT A THE POLAR BEAR?
OKAY, YOU'RE PROBABLY THINKING
'HANG ON, THERE AREN'T ANY TREES
IN THE ARCTIC, SO THEY PROBABLY
CAN'T CLIMB THEM ALL THAT WELL'.
B THE GRIZZLY BEAR?
OR C THE SPECTACLED BEAR?
IF YOU SELECTED C
YOU'RE CORRECT.
THE SPECTACLED BEAR IS THE
FASTEST TREE CLIMBER
AND THE BEST CLIMBER
IN THE BEAR WORLD,
ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES
TO CLIMBING TREES TO LOOK
FOR FRUIT.

A bear spots fruit near a parrots' nest and says NICE.

He scares the parrots away.

He tries to reach the fruit but it falls.

He say OH OH.

The announcer says SOUTH AMERICA ISN'T A GREAT
PLACE TO GO LOOKING FOR BEARS.
IN FACT, THERE'S ONLY ONE BEAR
THAT NATURALLY LIVES THERE.
THE SPECTACLED BEAR.
THE SPECTACLED BEAR IS KNOWN
FOR IT'S STRANGE FUR COLOURING
THAT MAKES IT LOOK LIKE IT'S
WEARING GLASSES.
THEY COME IN A VARIETY
OF COLOURS,
WEARING SHAGGY BLACK, BROWN
AND EVEN A REDDISH FUR
TO KEEP WARM.
THEY'RE VERY SHY,
PREFERRING TO SEEK OUT SOLITUDE
ON THE SIDE OF A MOUNTAIN,
RATHER THAN SOCIALIZE.
SPECTACLED BEARS HAVE BEEN KNOWN
TO CLIMB AS HIGH
AS 4,300 METERS.
WOW.
UP THIS HIGH
IN THE ANDES MOUNTAINS
THE LUSH FORESTS ARE BLANKETED
IN CLOUD.
THE SPECTACLED BEAR
WILL USUALLY COME BACK DOWN
THE MOUNTAIN TO LOOK FOR FOOD.
WHILE UP IN TREES,
FORAGING SPECTACLED BEAR HAVE
BEEN KNOWN TO SIT FOR DAYS
ON PLATFORMS
OF BROKEN BRANCHES.
WAITING FOR FRUIT TO RIPEN
AND BECOME DELICIOUS.
THE SPECTACLED BEAR
IS A MASTER CLIMBER.
IT KNOWS THAT IT CAN GET
A BETTER LOOK AT THINGS
FROM UP HIGH,
SO IT DOESN'T MATTER
IF IT'S FORGOTTEN TO BRING
ITS GLASSES.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Wombat Bob 1 tries to walk past Wombat Bob 2 inside a hollow tree.

Wombat Bob 1 says EXCUSE ME BOB, YOU FIRST.

Wombat Bob 2 says THAT WAS EASY.

Wombat Bob 1 says YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'VE LOST
WEIGHT BOB.

Wombat Bob 2 says I AM ON PALEO.

Wombat Bob 1 says PALEO.
WHAT'S THAT BOB?

Wombat Bob 2 says YOU EAT LIKE A CAVE WOMBAT BOB.

Wombat Bob 1 says WHAT DID THEY EAT?

Wombat Bob 2 says GRASS BOB, GRASS.

Wombat Bob 1 says GRASS?
I LOVE GRASS.
YEAH I AM A CAVE WOMBAT.

Wombat Bob 2 says WORD OF WARNING BOB,
PALEO CAN MAKE YOU GASSY.

Wombat Bob 1 says YOU'RE RIGHT BOB.
HERE COMES A FART NOW.

Wombat Bob 2 says NOT IN THE LOG BOB.
NO OUTSIDE BOB.

Wombat Bob 1 says OH IT'S COMING.
WOW WOW.
OH HERE IT COMES.
NUP GONE AWAY.

Wombat Bob 2 says OH THAT'S GOOD.
(FART SOUND)

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 APTLY NAMED
CAMOUFLAGE CRAB STANDS OUT
FROM ITS FELLOW CRUSTACEANS
BECAUSE OF THE ACCESSORIES
IT CARRIES?
HOWEVER,
THESE ACCESSORIES ARE NOT
FASHION STATEMENTS,
THEY COLLECT ITEMS LIKE SEAWEED,
CORAL AND SPONGES AND STICK
THEM TO THE HOOKED HAIRS
ON THEIR SHELLS IN ORDER TO
BETTER BLEND IN.
THIS IS DONE FOR A FEW REASONS.
THE MAIN ONE HERE IS TO AVOID
LARGER PREDATORS
LIKE THIS HERON.
CRAB ONE, HERON ZERO.
AND THAT'S... AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says OKAY CREATURE FANS, TIME TO GET
A BIT PHILOSOPHICAL.
IT'S TIME FOR A BIT OF
REFLECTION, FOR A BIT
OF CONTEMPLATION
AND RUMINATION,
WITH OUR FAVOURITE BLACK
AND WHITE, ROLY-POLY,
BAMBOO EATING, PONDERING PANDA.

A caption reads "Pondering Panda."

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda eats bamboo leaves and says HOW WEIRD IS JOGGING?
I MEAN, IN THE WILD,
THINGS ONLY RUN IF THEY'RE BEING
CHASED BY SOMETHING.
BUT LIKE, HUMANS JOG FOR FUN.
FOR FUN.
THAT'S SO WEIRD, JOGGING IS
SO BIZARRE.
AND WHY DO HUMANS WEAR SPECIAL
OUTFITS WHEN THEY GO JOGGING?
I DON'T HAVE SPECIAL PANTS
FOR ANYTHING.
JUST THIS ONE PANDA SUIT,
CHECK IT OUT,
IT'S AWESOME.
HUMANS COULD LEARN A LOT
FROM PANDAS.

Alfie says NOW SOMETHING COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT.
TIME TO CHECK IN WITH
DR. KATRINA AND SEE IF MAX
AND FRANKIE ARE READY
FOR THE FINAL STEP
OF TEACHING YOUR DOG TO SIT
ON COMMAND.
IT'S DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says TODAY WE'VE BEEN TEACHING
FRANKIE TO SIT
AND SHE'S DOING PRETTY WELL
ISN'T SHE?
THE SECOND STEP WAS TO GET HER
COMFORTABLE SITTING
WHILE ON THE LEAD.
THE THIRD AND FINAL STEP
IS TO GET HER TO SIT
WITHOUT BEING ON THE LEAD.
NOW I AM NOT GOING TO LURE HER
IN WITH A TREAT.
BUT SHE WILL GET A TREAT AS SOON
AS THAT BOTTOM GOES
ON THE GROUND.
ALL RIGHT I AM GOING TO
CALL HER IN.

Max says FRANKIE.
FRANKIE.

Katrina says SIT.
GOOD GIRL.
OKAY NOW YOU'RE GOING TO DO THAT
FOR ME.
CALL HER.
ASK HER TO SIT
AND THEN SHE GETS A TREAT.
STEP BACK FOR ME.
A COUPLE OF STEPS.
OKAY GO FOR IT, CALL HER.

Max says FRANKIE.

Katrina says CALL HER, CALL HER.

Max says FRANKIE SIT.

Katrina says PERFECT.
SHE HAS IT, FANTASTIC.
ARE YOU PROUD OF HER?

Max says YES.

Katrina says I THINK THIS WILL HELP YOU WITH
HER FOOD STEALING AT HOME.
IF YOU ASK HER TO SIT SHE'LL BE
IN POSITION INSTEAD
OF STEALING FOOD,
WHICH IS A GOOD ONE.
REMEMBER IF YOU ARE DOING DOG
TRAINING
OR TEACHING TRICKS AT HOME
ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU DO HAVE
ADULT SUPERVISION.
VERY IMPORTANT.
WELL I'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN.
I HOPE YOU'VE HAD FUN TOO.
I WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH MORE DOG TRICKS.

Alfie says GREAT WORK TEAM.
SO SITTING DOGS AND CLUCKING
CHICKENS TODAY,
WHAT A FUN SHOW.
NOT TO MENTION BABY PENGUINS
AND AWESOME SPECTACLED BEARS.
IF YOU WANT MORE FURRY, SCALED
AND FLUFFY GOODNESS
YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME.
REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME
ON
CREATURE MANIA.
