(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.

Alfie says HEY, HEY, CREATURE MANIACS
WELCOME TO THE SHOW
THAT'S ALL ABOUT
OUR ANIMAL FRIENDS
AND COMPLETELY
CREATURE CRAZY.
IT'S
CREATURE MANIA.
TODAY, THERE WILL BE HOOVES
AND PAWS, WINGS AND FLIPPERS.

Clips show different types of animals as Alfie says COMING UP,
WE GO CLAW TO CLAW
WITH CRABS,
GET WRIGGLY WITH
SOME CATERPILLARS
AND GO RAMPAGING
WITH SOME RACOONS.
WE HAVE A LAUGH WITH
PANDA AND PONY,
AND MEET A LITTLE CHIHUAHUA,
THAT THINKS IT'S A BIG DOG,
IN PET AND TELL.
PLUS, LOTS, LOTS MORE.
IT'S GOING TO BE
A PACKED SHOW.
SO LET'S KICK IT OFF
WITH OUR GOOD FRIEND DR KATRINA
AND SEE WHAT LUCKY
YOUNG DOG TRAINER AND THEIR PAL
ARE COMING ALONG TODAY
AND WHAT TRICK
THEY'RE GOING TO LEARN.
IT'S 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 I AM JOINED BY
AUSTRALIA'S SMARTEST DOGS,
THE WONDER DOGS.
AND TODAY,
WE'RE GOING TO SHOW YOU
HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG
TO DO A TUNNEL RUN.
AND SKETCH IS GOING TO
DEMONSTRATE THIS FOR US.
LET'S LEARN A BIT
ABOUT HER FIRST.
MEET SKETCH,
SHE'S 7 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.

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 "Tunnel run."

Katrina says THE TUNNEL RUN IS
A GREAT ACTIVITY FOR DOGS
OF ALL AGES AND ABILITY.

Sketch goes in an out the tunnel.

Katrina says COME ON.
GOOD GIRL.
GOOD GIRL.
IT'S A FUN THING TO DO
IN YOUR BACKYARD
AND IT HELPS KEEP YOUR DOG FIT.
GOOD GIRL.
SKETCH TUNNEL.
TUNNEL.
SKETCH TUNNEL.
WELL, NOW WE HAVE SEEN
AN EXPERT DEMONSTRATION,
LET'S GO SEE WHO IS
HERE TO TRAIN THEIR DOG.

Katrina sits on a bench with Veronica and her dog.

Veronica is around 7, with long straight brown hair in pig tails and wears denim shorts and a blue T-shirt.

Katrina says I'M HERE WITH VERONICA
AND BUDDY.
VERONICA, TELL ME A LITTLE BIT
ABOUT BUDDY.
VERY FRIENDLY AND PLAYFUL.

Veronica says HE IS OUR GUARD DOG
AND WHEN WE COME HOME
HE ALWAYS WELCOMES US
BY JUMPING UP AND DOWN
AND SPINNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY
AND HE LOVES CUDDLES
AND CAR TRIPS.

Katrina says DO YOU THINK
IT'S IMPORTANT TO TRAIN DOGS.

Veronica says YOU CAN'T JUST GIVE THEM FOOD
ALL THE TIME FOR NO REASON
AND IT'S ALSO FUN
TO TRAIN THEM.
BUDDY CAN DO A FEW TRICKS.
HE CAN DO SIT,
STAND UP ON HIS HIND LEGS,
HIGH FIVE
AND HE CAN GO DO A WEE
WHEN WE WANT HIM TO.

Katrina says OH, HE IS A GOOD LITTLE FELLA.
DO YOU WANT TO DO
SOME TRICK TRAINING WITH HIM?

Veronica says OKAY.

Katrina says OKAY, YOU READY, BUDDY?
YES, HE IS.
LET'S GO.
TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO TEACH
BUDDY TO DO THE TUNNEL RUN,
WHICH IS A FUN
AND QUITE FAST TRICK.
FIRST STEP IS WE WANT HIM TO GET
USED TO THE TUNNEL
BECAUSE IT'S A BIT OF
AN INTERESTING FEEL
AND IT MAKES
A LITTLE BIT OF NOISE.
SO YOU ARE GOING TO COME DOWN
WITH ME.
YOU CAN KEEP BUDDY ON THE LEAD.
I HAVE GOT SOME OF
HIS FAVOURITE TREATS HERE
AND I AM JUST GOING TO ENCOURAGE
HIM TO HAVE A LITTLE SNIFF.
SEE HOW
I AM JUST TOUCHING IT TOO?
SO HE GETS USED TO,
DO YOU WANT TO JUST
TOUCH THE TUNNEL FOR ME?
TOUCH THE TUNNEL AND I WILL
KEEP GIVING HIM TREATS
AND HE IS GETTING
QUITE COMFORTABLE.
WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET A COUPLE
OF STEPS IN THERE AS WELL.
OKAY, HE IS DOING WELL, HUH?

Veronica says YEAH.

Katrina says HE IS PRETTY CONFIDENT
AROUND THE TUNNEL.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON THAT
UNTIL HE IS CONFIDENT
TO STEP RIGHT IN.
GOOD BOY.
PUT A COUPLE OF TREATS
IN THERE TOO
AND WE'LL BE BACK WITH STEP TWO
AND THAT WILL BE GETTING YOU TO
ENTICE HIM THROUGH THE TUNNEL
FROM THE OTHER END.
FEELING GOOD?

Veronica says YEAH.

Katrina says WE'LL SEE YOU SOON.
GOOD BOY, BUDDY.

Alfie says THAT LOOKS LIKE A PRETTY
FUN TRICK, DON'T YOU THINK?
I THINK VERONICA AND BUDDY
WILL HAVE HEAPS OF FUN
LEARNING THE TUNNEL RUN.
WE'LL FIND OUT HOW THEY'RE DOING
WITH DR KATRINA
A LITTLE BIT LATER ON
IN THE SHOW.
BUT FIRST,
IT'S TIME FOR AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW CRABS HAVE 10 LEGS
AND ARE REFERRED TO AS DECAPODS?
DECA MEANING 10.
AND LIKE SPIDERS,
CRABS HAVE LEGS
THAT CAN BEND AT THE JOINTS.
WE MAY NOT NOTICE
THAT THE CRAB HAS 10 LEGS
BECAUSE WE ALWAYS CALL
THE CRAB'S FRONT TWO LEGS CLAWS
OR PINCERS.
IN SOME CRABS,
THE PINCERS CAN BE SMALL,
WHILE IN OTHERS
THEY CAN BE VERY BIG.
AND IN THE CASE
OF THE FIDDLER CRAB,
IT ACTUALLY HAS ONE BIG CLAW
AND ONE SMALL ONE.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says AND NOW MY CREATURE FRIENDS,
IT'S TIME TO MEET
A FEW OTHER PALS OF MINE.
THEY'RE EFFUSIVE,
THEY'RE GARRULOUS,
THEY'RE WELL SPOKEN
AND THEY'RE SOCIABLE.
WHO ELSE COULD I BE TALKING
ABOUT?
NO, IT'S NOT ME.
IT'S MY TWO FRIENDS
THE TWO BOBS.

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

Beetle Bob 2 says I HAVE NO IDEA, BOB?

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

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

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

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

Beetle Bob 1 says OH, COME ON, BOB, COME ON.
UP YOU GO, BOB.

Beetle Bob 2 says PUT ME DOWN.

Beetle Bob 1 picks Beetle Bob 2 up and says COME ON, BOBBY.
OH, BOB.
I AM GOING TO SAY
OH ABOUT 8 OR 9 GRAMS, BOB.

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

Beetle Bob 2 falls down.

Beetle Bob 1 says WHOOPSIE.

Beetle Bob 2 says 8 OR 9 GRAMS YOU SAY.

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.

Beetle Bob 2 says A GOOD THING?

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

Beetle Bob 2 says EATING MORE NOW.

Alfie says OH THOSE TWO BOBS.
I'M NEVER SURE
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THEM.
WE'LL SEE WHAT ELSE THEY HAVE
TO SAY LATER ON.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE COMPREHENSION.
THROW ON YOUR THINKING CAPS
AND GET READY TO FEED
THAT BRAIN.
IT'S CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
KILL THEIR PREY BY CONSTRICTION?
IS IT A,
THE WORLD'S DEADLIEST SNAKE,
THE DEATH ADDER?
IS IT B, THE PYTHON,
WHO EATS ITS PREY WHOLE
AND EVEN DIGESTS ITS BONES?
OR IS IT C,
THE BIG-HEARTED OCTOPUS?

An octopus says HEY, SUGAR BEAR.

The announcer says IN FACT,
THEY HAVE THREE HEARTS.
IF YOU ANSWERED B,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE PYTHON KILLS
BY CONSTRICTION.
HUMANS HUG EACH OTHER
TO EXPRESS AFFECTION,
BUT THESE CUDDLE MONSTERS
HAVE A DIFFERENT IDEA.
INSTEAD THEY CONSTRICT
THEIR PREY TO DEATH,
THEN SWALLOW THEM WHOLE.

A duck runs and screams.

The announcer says PYTHONS RANGE IN SIZE
FROM 1 METRE TO 8 METRES,
THEY HAVE TRIANGULAR HEADS,
THEIR SKIN HAS A COMPLEX PATTERN
OF IRREGULAR DIAMONDS
AND THEY TYPICALLY HAVE
A LIGHTER CREAM UNDERBELLY.
MOST ARE NOCTURNAL
TRAVELLING ALONG THE GROUND
AND THROUGH TREES,
BUT CAN ALSO BE FOUND LAZING IN
THE SUN DURING THE DAY.
THE PYTHON IS
A SOLE MEAT EATER.
IT AMBUSHES ITS PREY
FROM EITHER ABOVE,
BY DROPPING FROM A TREE,
OR GROUND LEVEL,
BY HIDING ON THE GROUND.
EVEN THOUGH THESE SNAKES
AREN'T POISONOUS
THEY DO HAVE TEETH
AND HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO BITE
IF THREATENED.
SO BEST TO KEEP YOUR DISTANCE.

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.
A TRUCKLOAD OF ANIMAL
AMAZINGNESS IN CREATURE QUIZ.
SOME ASTONISHING ANIMAL FACTS.
AND WE MEET OUR
PET AND TELL GUEST
AND HEAR SOME HILARITY
FROM THE TWO BOBS.
ALL THAT, STILL TO
COME ON
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW A CATERPILLAR HAS UP TO
4,000 MUSCLES IN ITS BODY.
BY COMPARISON,
HUMANS HAVE JUST 629 MUSCLES
IN A CONSIDERABLY LARGER BODY.
THE CATERPILLAR'S HEAD CAPSULE
ALONE,
CONSISTS OF
248 INDIVIDUAL MUSCLES
AND AROUND 70 MUSCLES
CONTROL EACH BODY SEGMENT.
AMAZING.
AND YOU JUST THOUGHT THEY WERE
WRIGGLY LITTLE FUR STICKS.
DO YOU KNOW
WHAT ELSE IS AMAZING?
CATERPILLARS HAVE 12 EYES.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says AND NOW, FOR AN ANIMAL WITH
CONSIDERABLY FEWER LEGS
THAN A CATERPILLAR.
FOUR LEGS TO BE EXACT,
AND SOFT WHITE FLUFFY FUR.
YEP, IT'S TIME WE HEAD OVER
AND CHECK IN WITH BUDDY
AND VERONICA
TO SEE HOW THEY'RE GOING WITH
DR KATRINA.
THEY'RE BUSY LEARNING TO DO
THE TUNNEL RUN.
LET'S GO FIND OUT
HOW THEY'RE DOING.
IT'S DOG TRICKS PART TWO.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
VERONICA AND I ARE TEACHING
LITTLE BUDDY
TO DO THE TUNNEL RUN.
THE FIRST STEP WAS JUST GETTING
BUDDY COMFORTABLE
AROUND THE TUNNEL
AND HE IS VERY COMFORTABLE.
NOW THE SECOND STEP
I WANT YOU TO GO TO
THE OTHER END OF THE TUNNEL,
TAKE HIS TREATS,
YOU HAVE GOT SOME CHICKEN THERE.
POP AROUND ME
AND UP TO THE BACK
AND IF YOU CAN CRAWL IN
A LITTLE WAY
AND ENCOURAGE HIM THROUGH
AND THEN GIVE HIM THE, THE FOOD.
OKAY?
READY?
UNDER YOU GO.
CALL HIM THROUGH.

Veronica says COME ON, BUDDY.

Katrina says BRING HIM RIGHT OUT FOR ME.
CALL HIM RIGHT OUT
AND THEN GIVE HIM SOME TREATS.
THERE YOU GO.
GOOD ONE.
WELL, THAT'S STEP TWO.
WE'LL KEEP WORKING ON THAT.
I'LL BE BACK SOON
WITH STEP THREE,
WHICH IS TO STRETCH THE
TUNNEL OUT
AND SEE IF HE GOES THROUGH THAT.

Alfie says WE'LL HAVE MORE FROM DR KATRINA
AND DOG TRICKS LATER ON.
BUT FIRST,
TIME FOR A BIT OF FUN.
LET'S ALL REJOICE
AND HAVE A LAUGH
WITH OUR FAVOURITE
JOKE TELLING PAL.
GIVE IT UP FOR THE ONE,
THE ONLY BAD PUN PONY.

(music plays)

A caption reads "Bad Pun Pony."

Kids say YAY!

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

Bad Pun Pony says YOU KNOW
I HAVE A FEAR OF SPEED BUMPS
BUT I AM SLOWLY
GETTING OVER IT.

Ducks chuckle.

Bad Pun Pony says HOW DOES A PENGUIN BUILD
HIS HOUSE?
IGLOOS IT TOGETHER.
GET IT?
IGLOOS?

A bunny chuckles.

Kids say BAD PUN PONY.
YAY!

Alfie says AHH THAT PONY CRACKS ME UP.
AND WE'LL HAVE MORE CRACK UPS
FROM OUR HILARIOUS HORSE
NEXT TIME ON THE SHOW.
BUT NOW, LET'S SEE SOME MORE
INCREDIBLE ANIMALS
AND TEST OUR CREATURE KNOWLEDGE
WHILE WE'RE AT IT.
IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER
CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS
CAN SURVIVE THE 9 MONTHS
WITHOUT FOOD?
IS IT A THE CAMEL?
B THE PACIFIC SALMON?
WHICH USES A LOT OF ENERGY
SWIMMING IN STREAMS,
HOW LONG CAN THEY GO
BEFORE REFUELLING?
C THE PIRANHA?
WE ALL KNOW HOW VICIOUS IT CAN
BE WHEN FEASTING UPON ITS PREY,
BUT HOW LONG CAN IT GO
IN BETWEEN MEALS?
IF YOU HAVE SELECTED A,
THE CAMEL, YOU'D BE WRONG.
WHILE IT'S TRUE THAT THE CAMEL
CAN GO FOR EXTENDED PERIODS
WITHOUT WATER,
MAKING THEM INCREDIBLY USEFUL
FOR DESERT TRANSPORTATION,
THEY CAN ONLY GO WITHOUT FOOD
FOR A MAXIMUM OF 40 DAYS.
BUT IF YOU CHOSE B
THE PACIFIC SALMON
AS THE ONE THAT CAN GO 9 MONTHS
WITHOUT FOOD YOU'D BE CORRECT.
GOING 9 MONTHS WITHOUT
A SINGLE BITE OF FOOD
MIGHT SEEM LIKE A LONG TIME
BETWEEN MEALS,
BUT THIS FISH MANAGES IT
BECAUSE THE ONLY THING
ON ITS MIND IS ITS BABIES.
THESE PACIFIC SALMON
ARE HEADING HOME.
IT CAN BE 1,100 KILOMETRES
UPSTREAM
TO THEIR SPAWNING GROUND
AND THEY SWIM THERE
ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.
THEY DON'T EAT
BECAUSE THERE'S LITTLE FOOD FOR
THEM IN THE FRESHWATER STREAMS
AND EVENTUALLY THEIR DIGESTIVE
SYSTEM WILL JUST SHUT DOWN.

People say OH.

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 TELL
GUEST IN THE HOUSE,
THERE'S AN ADORABLE ANIMAL
IN TOO CUTE,
PLUS, SOME USING 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 RACCOONS HAVE
A VERY HIGH IQ?
MAKING THEM ONE OF THE WORLD'S
MOST INTELLIGENT MAMMALS
AND ARE FOUND TO BE
MORE INTELLIGENT THAN CATS.
THEY HAVE AMAZING SKILL IN
OPENING LOCKS AND CLOSED DOORS.
IN A STUDY,
RACCOONS WERE PRESENTED WITH
A TOTAL OF 13 DIFFERENT KINDS
OF LOCKS,
AND WERE ABLE TO OPEN 11 OF THEM
IN 10 TRIES OR LESS,
AND ONE WHOLE YEAR LATER
WITH NO PRACTICE
IMMEDIATELY REMEMBERED HOW TO
OPEN THOSE VERY SAME LOCKS,
PROVING THEIR HIGH INTELLIGENCE.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

The announcer says OKAY CREATURE FANS,
IT'S THAT TIME OF THE SHOW
WE ALL LOOK FORWARD TO.
YES, YOU GUESSED IT.
IT'S TIME FOR PET AND TELL
WITH A NEW GUEST AND THEIR PET.
BUT FIRST, THERE'S THIS.

A clip shows a dog jumping around a field like a kangaroo.

A caption reads "It’s Pet and Tell."

Alfie sits in the set with Alayna and her pet.

Alayna is around 10, with long straight black hair and wears jeans and a red T-shirt.

Alfie says INTRODUCING ALAYNA.
SHE HAS BROUGHT IN HER PET DOG
TO TELL US ABOUT.
HELLO, ALAYNA.

Alayna says HELLO, ALFIE.

Alfie says THANK YOU FOR COMING IN.
WHO IS THIS?

Alayna says SOPHIE.

Alfie says SOPHIE.
AHH WHAT KIND OF A DOG
IS SOPHIE?

Alayna says A LONG COAT CHIHUAHUA.

Alfie says WHAT MADE YOU GET
A LONG COAT CHIHUAHUA?

Alayna says BECAUSE HE LOOKS CUTE.

Alfie says YEAH.
SHE IS SO TINY.
SO SOPHIE LOOKS PRETTY TAME.
SHE SEEMS LIKE A VERY LOVELY,
RELAXED DOG.

Alayna says NOT REALLY.
SHE CHASES BIG DOGS
AND THINKS SHE'S TOUGH.

Alfie says OH, THAT'S INTERESTING.
DOES SOPHIE HAVE ANY WEIRD
OR FUNNY BEHAVIOURS?

Alayna says AND SHE KIND OF LICKS ME
AND MY DAD
AND MY BROTHERS
AND MY MUM'S TOES.

Alfie says SO SHE LIKES TO LICK TOES.

Alayna says YEAH.

Alfie says THAT'S A BIT FUNNY.
CHIHUAHUA.
THE CHIHUAHUA IS
THE WORLD'S SMALLEST DOG.
CHIHUAHUAS ARE
VERY AFFECTIONATE HOUSEMATES
AND ARE INTELLIGENT
AND FAST LEARNING.
CHIHUAHUAS ARE AMONG
THE TOP TEN WATCHDOGS
RECOMMENDED BY EXPERTS.
CHIHUAHUAS TEND TO FORGET
HOW SMALL THEY ARE
SO THEY HAVE BEEN KNOWN TO STAND
UP TO BIGGER, AGGRESSIVE DOGS.
IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR
A LITTLE DOG
WITH A BIG PERSONALITY
THEN THE CHIHUAHUA
IS PERFECT FOR YOU.
CHIHUAHUA.
WHAT IS IT
YOU LOVE ABOUT SOPHIE?

Alayna says THAT SHE IS REALLY LIKE CUDDLY.

Alfie says SHE IS GENERALLY A VERY CALM,
LOVELY DOG?

Alayna says NOT USUALLY.

Alfie says NO?
WHAT DOES SHE DO TO NOT BEHAVE?

Alayna says UMM MOST OF THE TIMES
WHEN WE GO OUTSIDE
AND SHE MOSTLY JUST SAY
I WANT TO COME TOO
AND SHE IS KIND OF
GETTING ANGRY
AND THEN SHE WENT TO THE FRONT
OF THE HOUSE AND POOPED.

Alfie says SO WHEN SHE GETS ANGRY
SHE POOPS?

Alayna says YEAH.

Alfie says HA, HA.
SO TAKE US THROUGH
A DAILY ROUTINE WITH SOPHIE?

Alayna says MOST OF THE TIME
WE JUST TAKE HER TO THE PARK
AND MEET OTHER DOGS.
SOMETIMES SHE BITES,
UMM, PEOPLE'S ANKLES.

Alfie says SHE BITES PEOPLE'S ANKLES.

Alayna says YEP.

Alfie says SO IF OTHER CHILDREN WERE
LOOKING TO GET
A LONG COAT CHIHUAHUA
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT?

Alayna says YEAH, THEY'RE CUTE AND CUDDLY
AND SOMETIMES
THEY'RE MOSTLY VIOLENT.

Alfie says MOSTLY VIOLENT.

Alayna says YEAH.

Alfie says SO THEY'RE PROTECTIVE.

Alayna says YEAH.

Alfie says WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR COMING IN ALAYNA.

Alayna says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Alfie says AND THANK YOU
FOR BRINGING IN SOPHIE.

Alayna says YOU'RE WELCOME.

Alfie says SHE IS SO CUTE.
SPEAKING OF CUTE
CHECK THIS OUT.
WHAT OUT?

The announcer says BIRDS ARE GREAT.
BUT THE ALEXANDRINE PARROT
IS A REAL HEAD TURNER.
IT'S ACTUALLY NAMED AFTER
ALEXANDER THE GREAT.

A koala says WHOA.

The announcer says THEY HAVE BEAUTIFUL
LONG TAIL FEATHERS
AND LOVE WATCHING TV.

A parrot says LIKE
CREATURE MANIA.

The announcer says AND A CRAZY BIG BEAK
THAT'LL CHEW THROUGH ANYTHING.
EVEN YOUR CREDIT CARDS.
PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
AND THEY'RE JUST...

Kids say TOO CUTE!

Alfie says AND THAT,
CREATURE FRIENDS WAS TOO CUTE.
MORE CUTENESS ON THE NEXT SHOW.
BUT NOW, IT'S TIME TO TEST
YOUR CREATURE IQ
AND FEED THAT BRAIN.
ARE YOU READY?
IT'S TIME FOR CREATURE QUIZ.

The announcer says WHICH OF THESE ANIMALS RETURN TO
THE SAME NESTING PLACE EACH YEAR
TO FIND THEIR MATE?
IS IT A
THE DAZZLING DOLPHINS?
IS IT B,
THE CRESTED PENGUIN,
WHO HAVE THE MOST
FABULOUS EYEBROWS
IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE?

A crested penguin says THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

The announcer says OR IS IT C
THE INSATIABLE HUMMINGBIRD?
IF YOU ANSWERED B,
YOU ARE CORRECT.
THE CRESTED PENGUIN RETURNS TO
THE SAME LOCATION EACH YEAR
TO FIND THEIR MATE.

A crested penguin says WELCOME.

The announcer says THE SNARES CRESTED PENGUINS
WHO BREED ON A GROUP OF ISLANDS
IN NEW ZEALAND CALLED THE SNARES
AND ARE RELATED TO FEW PENGUINS
IN THIS SPECIES
KNOWN AS THE CRESTED PENGUINS.
THE SNARE CRESTED PENGUIN
IS MONOGAMOUS.
THEIR NESTS ARE
SHALLOW DUG HOLES IN THE GROUND,
LINED WITH TWIGS
AND SMALL BRANCHES,
USUALLY BUILT UNDER TREES
AND SHRUBS
TO SHIELD IT FROM THE SUN.
DRIVEN BY AN INSTINCT TO FEED
THEIR DEMANDING CHICKS,
THE CRESTED PENGUINS RISK LIFE
AND WING,
THEY MUST DESCEND
A NEAR VERTICAL DROP.
BUT THERE IS EVEN MORE DANGER
AWAITING THEM.
DEADLY SEA LIONS
LURK AMONGST THE KELP.
A VOLUNTEER IS CHOSEN
AND AWAY THEY GO.
BENEATH THE SURFACE
THEY CAN FLY LIKE A BIRD!
BUT THEIR PERFECT BODY SHAPE
FOR UNDERWATER HUNTING
MAKES LIFE ON LAND
A LITTLE CLUMSY.

A caption reads "Two Bobs."

Mudskipper Bob 1 says HEY, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says YEAH, BOB.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says I HEARD SOMETHING DUMB
THE OTHER DAY.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says YOU DID.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YEAH.
SOMEONE CALLED US MUD SKIPPERS.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says REALLY?
WHAT A WEIRD NAME FOR
BEAUTIFUL CREATURES LIKE US.
WHAT'S MUD?

Mudskipper Bob 1 says I DON'T KNOW.
UMM, BOB, WHAT ARE WE?

Mudskipper Bob 2 says MMM, I DON'T KNOW, BOB.
LET'S THINK FOR A SECOND.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says WELL, WE LIKE THIS BROWN STUFF,
WHATEVER IT IS.

Mudskipper Bob 2 says AND WE SLIP AROUND IN IT
ALL DAY.

They both say BROWN SLIPPERS.

Mudskipper Bob 1 says YEAH.
WE'RE A PAIR OF BROWN SLIPPERS.

Mudskipper Bob 2 burps and says STINKY BROWN SLIPPERS.

Mudskipper Bob 1 sniffs and says OH.

Alfie says OH, 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 ROLIE 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.

The announcer says DID YOU KNOW ABOUT 3,000 TOXIC CANE TOADS
WERE RELEASED
INTO THE AUSTRALIAN ECOLOGY
IN 1935
WITH THE HOPE
THAT THEY WOULD CONTROL
THE DESTRUCTIVE
CANE BEETLE POPULATION?
NOW WITH THEIR NUMBERS REACHING
THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS,
THEY ARE WREAKING HAVOC
ON LOCAL WILDLIFE.
THIS INVASIVE SPECIES HAS
FEW PREDATORS IN AUSTRALIA
AND THEY POISON NATIVE ANIMALS
AND HOUSEHOLD PETS
WHO HAPPEN TO PREY ON THEM.
AND THAT'S...

Kids say AN ANIMAL FACT.

Alfie says ALRIGHT CREATURE CRAZIES,
TIME FOR A BIT OF PHILOSOPHY
WITH A BEAR
WHO LIKES TO CONTEMPLATE,
HE LIKES TO PONDER AND COGITATE
AND PUZZLE AND DWELL.
YES, IT'S OUR FAVOURITE
BAMBOO-EATING,
ROLLIE POLY, ADORABLE,
PONDERING PANDA.

Kids say THE PANDA THAT LIKES TO PONDER.

A panda on its back says YOU KNOW HOW US PANDAS SMELL
WITH OUR NOSES?
AND WE SEE COLOUR WITH
OUR EYES?
WELL, LIKE,
IF WE DIDN'T HAVE NOSES,
WE'D NEVER KNOW
THAT SMELLS EXISTED.
AND IF WE DIDN'T HAVE EYES,
WE'D HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT COLOURS.
SO, I MEAN,
WHAT IF THERE'S, LIKE,
OTHER STUFF IN THE WORLD
THAT WE HAVE NO IDEA ABOUT
BECAUSE WE DON'T HAVE THE
RIGHT BODY ORGANS TO DETECT IT?
WOW.
I DON'T LIKE THE SMELL OF
THAT IDEA AT ALL.

Alfie says AND THAT, CREATURE FRIENDS
WAS PONDERING PANDA.
SO STRANGE.
LET'S MOVE ON.
LET'S CHECK OUT
HOW VERONICA AND BUDDY ARE DOING
WITH THE TUNNEL RUN.
CAN BUDDY MAKE IT THROUGH
THE FULL TUNNEL?
LET'S FIND OUT.
IT'S DOG TRICKS PART THREE.

Katrina says WELCOME BACK.
VERONICA AND I ARE TEACHING
BUDDY TO DO THE TUNNEL RUN.
HE'S DOING REALLY WELL,
ISN'T HE?

Veronica says YEAH.

Katrina says YES.
SO FAR WE HAVE GOT HIM
COMFORTABLE AROUND THE TUNNEL.
WE HAVE GOT HIM COMFORTABLE
WITH YOU CALLING HIM
THROUGH THE TUNNEL.
WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO NOW
IS STRETCH THE TUNNEL OUT
A LITTLE BIT LONGER.
KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING,
KEEP GOING.
I THINK ABOUT THERE.
STOP THERE.
PERFECT.
SO NOW YOU HOP
AT THE END FOR ME.
AND THIS TIME LOTS OF
CALLING HIM AND ENCOURAGEMENT.
LET'S SEE
IF HE WILL GO THROUGH.
OKAY, YOU READY?
READY, SET, CALL HIM.

Veronica says COME ON, BUDDY.
BUDDY GO, GO, GO, YAY.

Katrina says GOOD BOY.

Katrina says YOU GOT HIM, WELL DONE.
ARE YOU PROUD OF BUDDY TODAY?

Veronica says YES, I AM.

Katrina says SO WHY DO YOU THINK IT IS FUN
OR REWARDING TRAINING DOGS?

Veronica says I THINK IT'S REWARDING
TO TRAIN A DOG
BECAUSE IT'S A CHALLENGE
FOR YOU AND YOUR DOG
TO ACHIEVE THAT GOAL
AND IT'S VERY,
IT'S GOOD TO ACHIEVE IT.

Katrina says WELL, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
YOU GUYS ARE A LOVELY TEAM.
I HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED
WATCHING BUDDY'S DOG TRICK.
I WILL BE BACK NEXT TIME
WITH ANOTHER ONE.

Alfie says THAT'S ALL WE HAVE TIME
FOR TODAY CREATURE MANIACS.
I HOPE YOU ENJOYED WATCHING
THE ADORABLE FLUFFY BUDDY
LEARN HIS TRICK
AND MEETING ALAYNA
AND HER CUTE CHIHUAHUA SOPHIE.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE
MORE DOG TRICKS,
MEET MORE PETS,
FIND OUT SOME FREAKY FACTS
AND SEE MORE WEIRD, WONDERFUL
AND WACKY ANIMALS
THEN THERE'S ONLY ONE PLACE
TO COME.
AND REMEMBER ANIMALS ARE AWESOME
AND PETS ARE PALS.
I'M ALFIE.
JOIN ME NEXT TIME ON
CREATURE MANIA.
