Bedtime, Lucy! >
-You look tired, Lucy.
-I had a busy day at school, but I had fun!
-What's school like, Lucy?
-Well, you play games,
-and you have lessons.
-Proper lessons, like we do?
Do you have lessons in the jungle, Nelson?
Oh, yes, all sorts of lessons! There are elephant lessons...
- And hippopotamus lessons... - And monkey lessons!
I remember when cousin Chuckles learnt HIS monkey lessons!
In the jungle, we were always playing jokes on our friends.
Here he comes, now!
-Fancy a nice muddy potato?
Mmm, thanks, guys! This is delicious.
No-one was safe if WE were around.
# La la, la la la la la... # Eugh!
What makes you so COOL, Zed?
It's my go-faster stripes, Giggles.
Just look how fast I can run!
Oh, no! What a bunch of silly-billies!
Not even Nelson the elephant was safe!
No, don't. Please don't! Oh! O-Oh!
All the animals secretly enjoyed our monkey tricks,
until one day, news of a visitor spread through the treetops!
-Did you hear?
-Giggles' and Tickles'...
-is coming to stay...
-for the weekend!
I bet he does lots of tricks!
Look out! Chuckles is coming!
# Here he comes, toot to to toot toot toot too-oot! #
Hooray! Let's hear it for Chuckles! Hooray!
ALL: Hooray! Hooray!
-Giggles and Tickles, I presume?
-Hi there, cousin! Gimme five!
-A high five! You know, like this!
Excuse me, Mr Elephant. Am I in the right place?
Call me Nelson. Yes, Chuckles, you are.
These are your cousins, Giggles and Tickles.
We made you a banana pie, Chuckles.
You know, a banana pie?
Would you like some ba-na-na pie?
Why, yes, Tickles. I would love some ba-na-na pie.
Shall I give it to him, Chuckles? You know, GIVE it to him?
Well, if he'd like some, yes!
Here, Giggles, a nice sticky pie just for you!
Well, I SUPPOSE you'd all like to get to bed early.
-Well, no, we'll have a party, with music, and...
Is this your tree?
Ha ha, get off, Giggles!
Excuse me! Could you keep the noise down? I'm trying to concentrate.
Chuckles was VERY different from us. He didn't LIKE jokes!
But everywhere we went, Chuckles spoiled the fun!
-Watch out, Mr Elephant!
Well, go on then, give it to me!
-I'll have that.
Without our tricks, the jungle was VERY quiet.
The animals were VERY bored.
So, there's no fun, then?
Well, Nelson, if grass was fun, we'd all be eating sand for supper.
-ALL: Oh, no!
-It was a joke.
Oh, well, thanks, Herbert. Yes. Ha ha. Very nice.
Everyone in the jungle was bored!
And when Chuckles had read all his books, HE was bored too.
Then Giggles had an idea.
Chuckles, why don't you visit Dr Gordon? He's quite serious.
You can be serious together!
So Chuckles went to visit Dr Gordon Gorilla.
..Chuckles. What are you doing here? Atchoo!
-I'm visiting Dr Gordon.
-So am I. Atchoo!
I can't stop sneezing. Atchoo!
I've got a bad back.
I feel depressed. Atchoo!
Come in. I won't be a minute.
< Atchoo! Atchoo!
A-A-Ach. A-Aah. HIS TRUNK SQUEAKS
There. All better now. I always say that laughter is the best medicine.
-Laughter is a medicine?
-Yes! All they needed was a good laugh.
Your cousins usually keep all the animals happy.
-And, therefore, healthy?
-Would you like to study this book?
-It might help.
Monkey lessons. Yes, very interesting!
Bye, Dr Gordon.
Chuckles started to read the book Dr Gordon gave him.
The first chapter was on tickling.
Chuckles found it quite difficult, but he kept practising, all night.
The next day, Chuckles had a surprise for the animals!
Well, it's time for me to go. But first, I'll say a few words.
-This'll be boring.
-Animals, birds and insects.
-I'd like to say what a pleasure it's been to visit.
I'd like to, but in fact it's been REALLY BORING!
THAT has been my fault entirely.
So, to make amends, I'd like to do...
-Well done, Chuckles!
-You learned the main monkey lesson.
ALL: Keep them laughing!
Giggles and Tickles,
-I've made each of you a banana pie.
Go on, Chuckles, give it to them!
And that's how Chuckles learnt his monkey lessons.
Now, he laughs all the time,
I wonder if I'll have monkey lessons at school tomorrow.
Now it's time for a sleeping lesson, Lucy.
-Sweet dreams, everyone.
-ALL: Goodnight, Lucy.
