# Some are quite big Some are very small
# And Georgina is incredibly tall

Bedtime, Lucy! >
Listen to MY joke! I've got a new joke too!
-THEY ALL ARGUE
Lucy can't hear a thing if you all talk at once!
How about we LISTEN to a story?
-I know one about someone who found it hard to keep quiet!
You mean Herbert the Warthog?
Oh, yes! I like stories about him! He's funny!
THEY ALL AGREE
This is the story of Herbert's Peaceful Day.
'It was a peaceful afternoon in the African savannah...
'..but not for long!'
-Hot rhythms, Herbert! You've got hot rhythms!
Please find something else to do -
preferably something that doesn't involve making so much noise!
Blooming cheek! That wasn't noise! That was melody!
-Why do they always have a go at ME? I'm a musical warthog!
Do you HAVE to talk to yourself all the time? It's quite annoying!
Huh! I dunno! You're frightened to BREATHE these days!
'Herbert decided to cheer himself up by having a little snack.'
< CHOMPING AND BURPING
Do you HAVE to make those horrible noises?
Who - me?
-Yes - YOU!
-I don't make horrible noises...mmmgggrrrh...
-Yes, you do!
In fact, you never shut up!
DOES he? Not for a minute!
-Sorry. But you couldn't keep quiet even if you wanted to.
-Bet I could.
OTHERS: BET YOU COULDN'T!
CHOMPING AND GULPING
THEY MUTTER TOGETHER A-hem... Herbert...
We're going to set you a challenge.
Yes! If you can stay silent for a whole day...
From sunrise to sunset...
We will give you the biggest, juiciest watermelon you ever saw.
But if you lose, you have to hand over your musical rocks.
-Are you sure?
-Sure I'm sure! This will be easy!
-The challenge begins at sunrise tomorrow.
-I'll be ready!
He'll never do it. I give him two minutes, at most.
Oh, without those musical rocks, the savannah will be so peaceful!
'Herbert usually began the day with a large breakfast.
'Then just in time, he remembered that he had to stay silent all day.
'And Herbert could never eat anything without making a noise.'
He didn't eat his breakfast! Don't worry. Plenty of time yet!

-Hey, Herbie! Dig our groovy sound?
We need a drummer!
-Welcome aboard! You know the girls.
-ALL: Hi, Herbert!
OK, Herbert - you lead us in.
On the count of three... 1, 2, 3...
'Herbert really wanted to join in.
'But just in time, he remembered the challenge.'
That's drummers for you!
You're doing very well with the challenge!
Why don't we play a game to pass the time and keep your mind off things?
Em... Let's play First To See. I call out the name of a thing...
and whoever sees that thing first wins. OK?
OK. Let's start with... first to see...
OK, I'll give you another chance. I won, so I get to choose again.
First to see...an ant!
An ant! I won again! Not very good at this, are you, Herbert?
'Herbert had a frustrating afternoon.
'He decided to find a spot
'where he could spend the rest of the day alone.
'But he couldn't fall asleep,
'just in case he'd start snoring!'
LAUGHING AND CHATTERING
I know how we can make Herbert make a noise! Watch!
'Herbert was VERY ticklish!
'This was his biggest test so far.
'But he was DETERMINED not to laugh.'
I don't believe it!
No-one has ever resisted our tickling before!
'The sun began to set and Herbert felt it was safe to return.
'Surely nothing could stop him from winning the challenge NOW.'
Well done, Herbert! You must be very pleased!
Did you find it hard?
It's no use! We've had it!
It's almost sunset and he hasn't made a single noise!
We may as well give him the prize!
Bring forth the giant watermelon! POUNDING
Ten seconds to go! > ALL: Nine...!
Six...! Five...! Four...!
Herbert lost the challenge! Herbert lost the challenge!
Say something, Herbert! You can speak now, you know!
It was a brave effort!
So much so, we've decided to offer you a little consolation prize.
The giant watermelon is yours!
Yeah - you deserve it! Well? What are you waiting for?
CHOMPING AND MUNCHING
Bu-urp! We should have peaceful days more often!
THEY ALL LAUGH
That was a great story!
Very funny! YOU won't be able to stay quiet either!
I'm going now.
-Goodnight, Lucy... Oops!
I told you so!
Goodnight, Lucy! Peaceful dreams!
ANIMALS: SWEET DREAMS!
