(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'VE GOT AN INCREDIBLE LINE UP
OF INTERESTING, WACKY
AND WONDERFUL ANIMALS TODAY.
COMING UP...

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says WE LOOK AT SOME SUPER JUMPERS
THE BHARAL,
GO FISHING WITH A MOUSE
AND GO COMPLETELY QUACKERS
WITH SOME DUCKS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH PANDA
AND PONY,
CATCH UP WITH THE TWO BOBS
AND MEET KOBI
AND HIS AWESOME PET COCKATIEL
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
WE HAVE A MASSIVE SHOW LINED UP
FOR YOU TODAY.
BUT FIRST THINGS FIRST LET'S
CHECK IN WITH DR. KATRINA
AND THE WONDER DOGS AS WE FIND
OUT WHAT TRICK SHE'S GOING TO
TEACH US 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.
I AM HERE WITH THE BEAUTIFUL
WONDER DOGS.
TODAY I AM GOING TO SHOW YOU HOW
TO TEACH YOUR DOG TO JUMP
THROUGH A HOOP.
NOW SKETCH HERE IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS ONE FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT ABOUT HER.
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
ON 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 "Jump through hoop."

Sketch jumps through a hoop and Katrina says HEY.
JUMPING THROUGH A HOOP
IS A TRICK DOGS REALLY ENJOY.
IT'S A GREAT WAY TO HAVE FUN
AND EXERCISE YOUR DOG
AT THE SAME TIME.
YOU START WITH THE HOOP LOW TO
THE GROUND, OR ON THE GROUND,
AND GRADUALLY BUILD UP
THE HEIGHT.

Sketch jumps through the hoop again and Katrina says YAY.

Katrina says 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 Rosa and her dog.

Rosa is around 6, with blond hair in pig tail braids and she wears a yellow skirt and a burgundy T-shirt.

Katrina says I AM HERE WITH ROSE
AND CHESTER.
HOW OLD'S CHESTER?

Rosa says DIVE.

Katrina says AND HE IS A JACK RUSSEL.

Rosa says YEP.

Katrina says WHAT'S THE BEST PART
OF OWNING A DOG.

Rosa says WHEN WE LEAVE HIM UMM
FOR A LONG PERIOD
OR SHORT PERIOD
OF TIME WHEN WE COME BACK
HE PATS HIS FEET
AND DOES A LITTLE DANCE
AND IT'S REALLY CUTE.

Katrina says AHH SO HE IS ALWAYS HAPPY
WHEN YOU COME HOME.
NO MATTER HOW LONG
YOU HAVE BEEN GONE.

Rosa says YEAH.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEARN SOME
TRICKS WITH CHESTER?

Rosa says YES PLEASE.

Katrina says WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO THAT
CHESTER?
OKAY LET'S GET TRAINING.
TODAY ROSE AND I ARE GOING TO
TEACH CHESTER
HOW TO JUMP THROUGH A HOOP.
NOW THE FIRST STEP WITH THIS
ROSE IS JUST TO PUT THE HOOP
ON THE GROUND
AND ENCOURAGE CHESTER TO GO
THROUGH IT.
NOW YOU CAN USE A TREAT TO LURE
HIM THROUGH
OR IF YOU HAVE A DOG LIKE
CHESTER THAT IS OBSESSED
WITH TOYS YOU CAN USE THEIR TOY.
SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO IS
REACH RIGHT THROUGH THE HOOP
SO HE SEES THE TOY,
ENCOURAGE HIM THROUGH.
GOOD BOY.
NOW DROP THE TOY FOR HIM.
GOOD BOY CHESTER.
I SHOULD ADD IF YOU ARE TEACHING
YOUR DOG TRICKS
IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT
YOU HAVE ADULT SUPERVISION
FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY.
HE DID REALLY WELL
ON THAT STEP.
I THINK HE'S READY FOR STEP TWO,
WE'LL COME BACK WITH THAT
AND THAT WILL BE TO TAKE
THE FEET OFF THE GROUND.
YEP.
YOU READY FOR THAT?

Rosa nods.

Katrina says SEE YOU SOON.

Alfie says WHAT A HAPPY LITTLE DOG
CHESTER IS.
I THINK HE'S REALLY GOING TO
ENJOY LEARNING HOW TO JUMP
THROUGH A HOOP.
HE LOOKS RARING TO GO.
WE'LL CHECK BACK WITH
DR. KATRINA
AND THEM A BIT LATER ON
IN THE SHOW.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW... ..GOATS ARE AMAZING
MOUNTAINEERS?
FOR EXAMPLE, HIGH IN THE HILLS
OF THE HIMALAYAS LIVES A GOAT
CALLED THE BHARAL
AND THEY CAN CLIMB INTO AREAS
FEW HUMANS WOULD DARE TO GO.
DON'T LOOK DOWN GOAT DUDE.
THESE DARE DEVIL GOATS ARE
SO GOOD AT ROCK CLIMBING THAT
MALE GOATS SPEND MUCH
OF THEIR ADULT LIFE TRYING PUSH
OTHER GOATS OFF THE MOUNTAIN.
TO SURVIVE THEY HAVE TO BE
SUPER ROCK CLIMBERS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW MY CREATURE MANIACS
IT'S TIME TO MEET A FEW OTHER
PALS OF MINE.
THEY'RE ARTICULATE,
THEY'RE GLIB, THEY'RE WORDY
AND THEY'RE SLICK.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
AND NO IT'S NOT ME.
IT'S MY TWO FRIENDS
THE TWO BOBS.

(BEAT BOXING)

Praying Mantis 1 says OMM.
(BEAT BOXING)

Praying Mantis 1 says OMM.
(BEAT BOXING)

Praying Mantis 1 says OMM, OMM.
(BEAT BOXING)

Praying Mantis 1 says BREATHE IN WITH CALMNESS.

Praying Mantis 2 says HE'S BREATHING
BREATHE, BREATHE,
BREATHING
(SINGING)

Praying Mantis 1 says BREATHE OUT THE ANGER.
(SINGING)

Praying Mantis 1 says THEN RAISE YOUR ARMS CALMLY
AND SAY HELLO TO THE SUN.

Praying Mantis 2 says 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.

Praying Mantis 1 punches Praying Mantis 2.

Praying Mantis 1 says THAT WAS MY SOLO.

Praying Mantis 2 says OUCH CHICA OW BOB

Alfie says TWO BOBS OF TALKING NONSENSE
ALL RIGHT.
HILARIOUS.
WE'LL FIND OUT WHAT ELSE THEY
HAVE TO SAY A BIT LATER ON.
IT'S TIME NOW FOR SOME
BRAIN NOURISHMENT.
LET'S TEST YOUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE
AND FIND OUT
SOME FASCINATING FACTS.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
DON'T LIKE NOSEY NEIGHBOURS?
IS IT A THE ELEPHANT?
B THE BUSY HONEYBEE?
OR IS IT C
THE PRZEWALSKIS HORSE?
IF YOU ANSWERED C,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
PRZEWALSKIS HORSE DOES NOT LIKE
NOSEY NEIGHBOURS.
PRZEWALSKIS HORSES ARE THE ONLY
TRUE WILD HORSES ON EARTH TODAY.
THEY HARK FROM THE STEPPES
OF ASIA WHERE MONGOLIA MEETS
CHINA AND ARE THE ONLY BREED
OF HORSE NEVER TO HAVE BEEN
DOMESTICATED BY HUMANS.
THE PRZEWALSKIS WILD HABITAT IS
IN GRASSY SHRUB LANDS
WHERE THEY FORM FAMILY GROUPS.
AND THERE IS MOST DEFINITELY
A LEADER IN THESE FAMILIES.
THE HAREM IS MADE UP
OF A DOMINANT STALLION,
ONE TO THREE MARES,
AND THEIR OFFSPRING.
WHILE THE STALLION IS MOST
DEFINITELY IN CHARGE, ONE MARE,
USUALLY OLDER
OR MORE AGGRESSIVE,
WILL BE SECOND IN COMMAND.
THE STALLION IS IN CHARGE
OF HERDING
AND DRIVING THE FAMILY TO NEW
LOCATIONS AND PLACES TO EAT,
MAINTAINING CONSTANT
COMMUNICATION WITH ALL MEMBERS
OF THE GROUP.
EVERY RUB, SNIFF, BITE,
AND TILT OF THE EARS
COMMUNICATES A MESSAGE
AMONG THE HERD.
THE PRZEWALSKIS IS KNOWN TO
CHASE AND BITE CATTLE
WHO WANDER TOO CLOSE
TO HIS HAREM,
SHOOING AWAY UNWANTED
NEIGHBOURS.
AND IF HE ENCOUNTERS A BACHELOR
STALLION A RITUAL FIGHT ENSUES.
BOTH DASH TOWARDS EACH OTHER,
ALTERNATING KICKING
AND BITING UNTIL ONE STALLION
IS CHASED AWAY.

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 FISHING MOUSE
IS ALSO KNOWN AS A WATER MOUSE
AND IS VERY RARE?
IT IS A SMALL NOCTURNAL PREDATOR
WHO SPENDS THE NIGHT SEARCHING
THE STREAM FOR AQUATIC INSECTS
AND FISH.
IT IS DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND
THE COLD, ITS BODY HOLDS HEAT
AND THE FUR IS THICK AND WARM
AND WATERPROOF.
THEY RELY LESS ON EYESIGHT
AND SMELL,
BUT RATHER LONG TACTILE WHISKERS
TO DETECT THEIR PREY.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says FISHING MICE.
AMAZING.
NEXT THING YOU KNOW THERE WILL
BE JUMPING DOGS.
OH WAIT.
THAT'S RIGHT.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE
OF TEACHING CHESTER TO JUMP
THROUGH A HOOP.
I WONDER HOW DR. KATRINA
AND ROSA ARE GETTING
ON WITH HIS TRAINING?
WELL IT'S TIME TO FIND OUT.
LET'S HEAD OVER FOR STEP TWO
OF DOG TRICKS.

Katrina says HI AND WELCOME BACK.
I AM HERE WITH ROSA
AND WE'RE TEACHING CHESTER TO
JUMP THROUGH A HOOP.
NOW HE WAS PRETTY COMFORTABLE
GOING THROUGH THE HOOP THE FIRST
TIME WASN'T HE?
THAT WAS THE FIRST STEP
ON THE GROUND.
NOW WE'RE GOING TO RAISE IT UP
A LITTLE
AND I WANT YOU TO ENCOURAGE HIM
WITH HIS TOY AGAIN.
SO WE'RE USING A TOY INSTEAD
OF FOOD TO LURE HIM THROUGH
BECAUSE AS YOU CAN SEE HE IS
JUST OBSESSED WITH HIS TOY.
OKAY I AM GOING TO GET YOU TO DO
THE SAME THING
BUT I AM GOING TO RAISE THIS
OFF THE GROUND.
OKAY PUT YOUR ARM THROUGH.
CALL HIM.

Rosa says CHESTER, CHESTER.

Katrina says READY.
AND YOU CAN TOSS THAT TOY.
WAY.
GOOD ONE.
HE IS PRETTY KEEN ON THAT TOY
ISN'T HE?
OKAY HE DID WELL.
HE HAS GOT NO PROBLEMS JUMPING
THROUGH THAT HOOP DOES HE?

Rosa says NO.

Katrina says WE'LL BE BACK WITH STEP THREE
SOON,
WHICH IS TO HOLD THAT HOOP UP
AND ENCOURAGE HIM TO JUMP
THROUGH BUT WITHOUT ACTUALLY
LURING HIM.
I THINK HE WILL BE ABLE
TO DO IT.
DO YOU?

Rosa says YEP.

Katrina says YEP.

Alfie says WE'LL CATCH UP WITH THEM
A BIT LATER.
BUT FIRST TIME
FOR SOME BELLY WOBBLING, ROLLING
ON THE FLOOR,
HAR DE HAR LAUGHING.
WELL SHE THINKS SO.
YEP GIVE IT UP FOR OUR FAVOURITE
HORSE WHO HOWLS.
HAND OVER THE MIC TO
BAD PUN PONY.

(music plays)

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

Bad Pun Pony says WHY DID THE BEE GO
TO THE DOCTOR?
BECAUSE HE HAD HIVES.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says WHAT STEPS DO YOU TAKE IF A
TIGER IS RUNNING TOWARDS YOU?
BIG ONES.

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY YAY.

Alfie says WHAT A KNEE SLAPPER.
WE'LL HAVE MORE
FROM OUR JOKESTER PONY
ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW, TIME FOR A CHANGE
OF SCENERY.
LET'S HAVE A BIT
OF A BRAIN TRAIN
AND SEE IF WE CAN ANSWER THIS
ONE CORRECTLY.
YES IT'S TIME
FOR ANOTHER CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
IS A PARASITE THAT WILL NEVER
LEAVE ITS HOST?
IS IT A THE WACKY WINGLESS
BAT FLY?
B THE FLEETING, FLIPPING FLEA?
OR IS IT C THE SCARY SCABIES
MITE?
EWW.
YUCK, YUCK, YUCK,
YUCK, YUCK.
LET'S MOVE ON SHALL WE.
THE ANSWER IS A.
THE BAT FLY NEVER LEAVES
ITS HOST.
THE FORESTS OF NEW ZEALAND
ARE HOME TO A PEST
THAT'S COMPLETELY DEPENDENT
ON THE GENEROSITY
OF ANOTHER ANIMAL.
THESE FLYING MAMMALS CAN EASILY
MOVE THROUGH THE FOREST TO EAT
INSECTS, FRUIT, AND FLOWERS,
CARRYING AROUND A PARASITE.
THE WINGLESS BAT FLY IS A FLY
THAT CAN'T FLY.
IT'S LOST ITS WINGS
AND IS NOW TOTALLY DEPENDENT
ON BATS FOR ITS HOME, FOOD
AND TRANSPORTATION.
AS MANY AS TEN FLIES CAN BE
FOUND IN THE FUR
OF ONE BAT WHEN IT LEAVES THE
ROOST TO FEED AT NIGHT.
THE BATS DON'T SEEM TO WORRY TOO
MUCH ABOUT CARRYING THE MOOCHERS
FROM ROOST TO ROOST.
THEY'LL EVEN TOLERATE THE BUGS
FEEDING
ON SECRETIONS PRODUCED BY THE
BAT'S MOUTH, EYES AND BOTTOM.
THEY LIVE SIDE BY SIDE WITH
THEIR BABIES
AND EVEN GROOM EACH OTHER.
THE BATS AND THEIR HITCHHIKING
BUGS LIVE IN HARMONY.
LIKE BUDDIES.

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... ..DUCKS HAVE BEEN
DOMESTICATED AS PETS
AND FARM ANIMALS
FOR MORE THAN 500 YEARS?

A cow says SILENCE.

The announcer says A MALE DUCK IS CALLED A DRAKE,
A FEMALE DUCK A HEN,
AND A BABY DUCK, YOU GUESSED IT,
A DUCKLING.
A GROUP OF DUCKS CAN BE CALLED
A RAFT, TEAM OR PADDLING.
AND DID YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE?
THEY HAVE THREE EYELIDS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says OKAY CREATURE MANIACS TIME
FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
MY FAVOURITE PART
OF THE SHOW.
WE'RE GOING TO MEET
A SPECIAL GUEST
AND THEIR SPECIAL PET FRIEND
RIGHT HERE IN THE HOUSE.
BUT FIRST.

(MUSIC AND HEE YA NOISES)

A clip shows two birds fighting in the snow. One of them slides down a slope.

((music plays))

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with a boy and his pet bird.

Alfie says INTRODUCING KOBI.
HE'S BROUGHT
IN HIS PET COCKATIEL TO SHOW US.
WELCOME TO THE SHOW KOBI.

Kobi is around 7, with short straight red hair and wears blue shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Kobi says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Alfie says AND AHH WHO'S THIS?

Kobi says HULK.

Alfie says HULK AND WHAT KIND
OF A BIRD IS HULK?

Kobi says A COCKATIEL.

Alfie says A COCKATIEL WOW.
HE'S ACTUALLY REALLY PRETTY.
I REALLY LIKE HIS COLOUR.
SO IS HULK A LOVER OR A BITER?

Kobi says A BITER.

Alfie says HE'S A BITER.
WHAT DOES HE BITE?

Kobi says OH OTHER BIRDS AND ANIMALS.

Alfie says SO HE IS A BIT OF A MISCHIEF
MAKER AS WELL.
LISTEN TO HIM.
COCKATIELS.
THE COCKATIEL IS A MEMBER
OF THE COCKATOO FAMILY.
COCKATIELS ARE VERY SOCIABLE
BIRDS
AND WILL GET DEPRESSED IF THEY
ARE LEFT ALONE
FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
THE AVERAGE PET COCKATIEL CAN
LIVE BETWEEN FIFTEEN
AND TWENTY-FIVE YEARS.
YOU CAN TELL HOW A COCKATIEL
IS FEELING BASED
ON ITS CREST: THE SHOWY TUFT
OF FEATHERS ON ITS HEAD.
THE CREST IS DRAMATICALLY
VERTICAL WHEN THE COCKATIEL IS
STARTLED OR EXCITED
BUT IS FLATTENED CLOSE TO THE
HEAD WHEN THE COCKATIEL IS ANGRY
OR DEFENSIVE.
COCKATIELS.
DOES HE DO ANYTHING ELSE
THAT'S FUNNY?

Kobi says YEAH.

Alfie says WHAT DOES HE DO?

Kobi says SING.

Alfie says HE LIKES TO SING.
DOES HE EVER SING WITH YOU
IN THE CAR?

Kobi says YEAH WHEN WE PUT ON SONGS
IN THE CAR.

Alfie says WHEN YOU PUT ON SONGS IN THE CAR
AND HE SINGS ALONG.
IS HE, HAS HE GOT
A GOOD SINGING VOICE?

Kobi says YEAH.

Alfie says IS IT BETTER THAN YOUR SINGING
VOICE?

Kobi says YEAH.

Alfie laughs and says WHAT OTHER TIMES DOES
HE SING ALONG?

Kobi says UMM THE VIDEO GAME TV IS WHERE
HIS CAGE IS.

Alfie says YEAH AND SO THEN DOES HE
SING ALONG

Kobi says YEAH.

Alfie says WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING
THE VIDEO GAMES?
DO YOU EVER LET HIM OUT
OF THE CAGE?

Kobi says YEAH SOMETIMES.

Alfie says YEAH AND IS HE ALLOWED TO FLY
OUTSIDE?

Kobi says NO.

Alfie says WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE THING
ABOUT HULK?

Kobi says UMM HE IS FUNNY.

Alfie says DOES HE MAKE YOU LAUGH?

Kobi says YEAH.

Alfie says IF SOMEONE ELSE WAS LOOKING TO
GET A COCKATIEL AS A PET
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Kobi says NO.

Alfie says NO?
WHY IS THAT?

Kobi says BECAUSE I WANT TO BE THE ONLY
ONE WITH A COCKATIEL.

Alfie says FAIR ENOUGH, YES.
NO ONE GET COCKATIELS BECAUSE
KOBI WANTS TO BE THE ONLY ONE
WITH A COCKATIEL.
WELL THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING
ON THE SHOW TODAY KOBI.

Kobi says THANK YOU ALFIE.

Alfie says NO WORRIES.
AND THANK YOU
FOR INTRODUCING US TO HULK.

Kobi says OKAY.

Alfie says HE'S SO CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE
CHECK THIS OUT.

The announcer says WHAT DO BEARS, ELEPHANTS
AND HIPPOS ALL HAVE IN COMMON?
SURE THEY'RE ALL A BIT SCARY,
YIKES.

A clip shows a hippo opening its mouth.

The announcer says LOOK AT THOSE TUSKS.
BUT, THEY'RE ALSO ADORABLE
WHEN THEY'RE BABIES.
OH LOOK A BABY BEAR,
A BABY ELEPHANT
AND A BABY HIPPO.
AWW THAT'S ADORABLE.
SO THEN NEXT TIME YOU SEE A BIG
SCARY ANIMAL
REMEMBER THEY WERE ONCE
A TINY LITTLE BABY.
AWW THAT'S JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE.

Alfie says OH.
MORE TOO CUTE ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW IT'S TIME
FOR A LITTLE BIT
OF BRAIN NOURISHMENT.
LET'S TEST YOUR ANIMAL KNOWLEDGE
AND FIND OUT
SOME FASCINATING FACTS.
IT'S TIME
FOR A FANTASTIC CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS... ..ARE THE OLDEST
IN THE EVOLUTIONARY TIMELINE?
IS IT A THE BATS?
WHO, BY THE WAY,
AREN'T BLIND AT ALL.
B THE TURTLE WHO IS ALWAYS
MOVING HOUSE?
OR IS IT C THE SNAPPY CRAB?
IF YOU ANSWERED B,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
TURTLES ARE AMONGST THE OLDEST
AND MOST PRIMITIVE GROUPS
OF REPTILES, HAVING EVOLVED
AROUND 200-300 MILLION
YEARS AGO.
TURTLES LIVE ALL OVER THE WORLD
IN ALMOST EVERY TYPE
OF CLIMATE.
TURTLES HAVE A REPUTATION
FOR BEING SLOW, BUT
IN THE WATER THEY CAN ACTUALLY
BE QUITE FAST.
ALL TURTLES LAY EGGS,
AND SEA TURTLES TRAVEL FROM
THE OCEAN TO LAY THEIR EGGS
ON BEACHES.
THEY FIND A PLACE
ON LAND TO LAY THEIR EGGS,
DIG A NEST INTO THE SAND OR DIRT
AND THEN WALK AWAY LEAVING
THEIR BABIES
TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES.
THESE GUYS ARE TURTLELY
FASCINATING.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Inside a hollow log, Wombat 1 says OH NOT COOL.
NOT COOL.

Wombat 2 says BOB, WAKE UP, WAKE UP.
ARE YOU OKAY BOB?

Wombat 1 says YEAH I WAS JUST HAVING
A GRASS MARE.

Wombat 2 says GRASS MARE?

Wombat 1 says YOU KNOW WHEN YOU EAT TOO MUCH
GRASS AND YOU HAVE BAD DREAMS?

Wombat 2 says MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO EASY
ON THE GRASS MATE.

Wombat 1 says LOOK GRASS.
MMM.

Wombat 2 says THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM
TALKING ABOUT BOB.
EASE UP ON THE GRASS.
SLOW DOWN BOB.

Wombat 1 says GRASS.

Wombat 2 says SLOW IT DOWN.

Wombat 1 says I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.

Wombat 2 says SLOW IT DOWN.

Wombat 1 says ALL RIGHT.

Wombat 2 says CUTTING YOU OFF.
STOP.
OKAY YOU DON'T MIND IF I EAT
YOUR BITS DO YOU?

Wombat 1 says WELL.
THANKS FOR SLOWING ME DOWN BOB.

Wombat 2 says GEE YOU ATE A LOT OF GRASS.

Wombat 1 says AHH.
GRASS MARE.
GRASS MARE.

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 PIRARUCU IS ONE OF THE
BIGGEST FRESHWATER FISH
IN THE WORLD.
IT'S UP TO THREE METRES LONG
AND CAN WEIGH UP TO
200 KILOGRAM.
THAT'S ABOUT THE SIZE
OF A MAKO SHARK.
OPENING ITS JAWS WIDE THE
PIRARUCU WILL SWALLOW THESE
SMALL FISH WHOLE.
VICTIMS ARE SUCKED
IN WITH A RUSH OF WATER
AND AIR THAT'S THEN EXPELLED
THROUGH THE PIRARUCU'S GILLS.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says I DO LOVE A FUN FACT.
OKAY GUYS TIME FOR A BIT OF
PHILOSOPHY WITH A BEAR
WHO LIKES TO REFLECT.
A BEAR WHO LIKES TO MUSE
AND THINK AND WRESTLE AND MULL.
YES IT'S OUR FAVOURITE ADORABLE,
BAMBOO-EATING, ROLLING
AND ROCKING PONDERING PANDA.

A kid says THE PANDA THAT LIKES
TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says DO YOU KNOW WHAT FREAKS
ME OUT?
SNAILS.
I MEAN, THEY'RE SO SNEAKY.
THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE
SLOWEST MOVING ANIMAL ON EARTH,
BUT HOW COME IF THEY'RE SO SLOW,
YOU NEVER SEE THEM COMING?
THEY ALWAYS JUST CREEP UP
ON YOU.
LIKE BOOM.
THERE'S A SNAIL.
HEY, MAYBE SNAILS SHOULD WEAR
A BELL TO LET YOU KNOW
THEY'RE COMING.
KIND OF LIKE THOSE BELLS
ON A CAT.
YEAH SNAIL BELLS.

Alfie says AND THAT CREATURE FANS
WAS PONDERING PANDA.
LITTLE BIT ODD.
MOVING ON.
IT'S TIME TO HEAD BACK NOW TO
CHECK IN WITH DR. KATRINA.
LET'S SEE IF ROSA CAN GET
CHESTER TO JUMP THROUGH A HOOP.
IT'S DOG TRICKS PART THREE.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
ROSA AND I ARE TEACHING CHESTER
TO JUMP THROUGH A HOOP.
NOW HE'S BEEN REALLY GOOD.
SO FAR WE'VE GOT HIM GOING
THROUGH THE HOOP
ON THE GROUND LEVEL
AND THEN A LITTLE BIT UP.
SO WHAT I WANT YOU TO DO NOW
ROSA I AM GOING TO GIVE YOU HIS
TOY BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN WORKING
WITH THE TOY.
IF YOU CAN WRIGGLE OVER THERE

I AM GOING TO HOLD THE HOOP UP.
THIS TIME INSTEAD OF LURING HIM
THROUGH THE HOOP
I AM GOING TO GET YOU TO CALL
HIM AND AS HE JUMPS THROUGH
DROP THE TOY FOR HIM OKAY.
GO.

Rosa says CHESTER.

Katrina says GOOD ONE.
PERFECT.
HE HAS NAILED JUMPING THROUGH
THE HOOP.
ARE YOU PROUD OF HIM?

Rosa says YES. VERY.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK YOU WILL KEEP
PRACTICING AT HOME?

Rosa says YEAH.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK HE WILL KEEP DOING
IT AT HOME?
I AM SURE HE WILL.
I THINK NEXT TIME WE SEE YOU
HE WILL BE JUMPING REALLY HIGH.
HAVE YOU ENJOYED TRAINING HIM
TODAY?

Rosa says YES.

Katrina says EXCELLENT.
WELL KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.
I HOPE YOU'VE ENJOYED
CHESTER'S TRICK.
I WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME WITH
ANOTHER ONE.

Alfie says GREAT JOB ROSA AND CHESTER.
THANKS KATRINA.
WHAT A BOUNCY HAPPY LITTLE DOG
CHESTER IS.
I THINK THEY'VE GOT A BRIGHT
TRAINING FUTURE AHEAD OF THEM.
WELL THAT'S IT FOR TODAY'S
SHOW GUYS.
I HOPE YOU'VE HAD FUN.
JUMPING DOGS, A BIRD
IN THE HOUSE, HORSES AND TURTLES
AND A WINGLESS BAT FLY, WEIRD.
