Bedtime, Lucy! >
ALL: Hello, Lucy!
It looks like somebody has lost her voice. We'll help you find it.
- It's not here. - Or here.
I hope I haven't stepped on it.
Hey, everybody! We've found Lucy's voice!
-It's over here!
-Are you sure it's Lucy's voice you've found?
-Here I am, Nelson!
-How did you do that, Lucy?
-How was that, fellas?
BOTH: That was perfect, Petula. Perfect!
That was very funny, Giggles.
But you and Tickles weren't laughing when Petula tricked YOU.
-But THAT was different.
-Yeah, completely different!
Why? What happened? Nelson?
I think Giggles and Tickles should tell us. Don't you, Lucy?
One day, Tickles and I were looking for something to eat in the jungle.
But we couldn't find a piece of fruit anywhere.
Now, let's see...
Grapes, oranges, bananas, yum-yum fruit...
What else do I need for the party? Yes - sticky berries.
-Come on, Giggles. Let's try the next tree.
We've hit the jackpot, Giggles. Look!
WOW! I've never seen so much fruit.
What are we waiting for? Let's dive in!
Mmm! Sticky berries!
-Mmm...! My favourite! Mmm...!
Don't eat them all. Leave some for me! ..Uugh!
'After a really big fruit fight and stuffing ourselves silly,
'we were both feeling very tired.'
-Yeah. Me, too.
Oh! My hands are all sticky!
I'll have to go to the river to wash them.
'Petula the parrot had returned to her tree and she wasn't happy.'
All my lovely fruit is gone!
Now I don't have anything to give my friends at the party!
I'll teach them a lesson!
-'It was now that Petula started to play her tricks.'
-Somebody help me!
-Tickles, is that you?
-Of course it is, silly! Hurry up! I'm stuck!
Stuck where? I can't see you.
Down here! In the snake hole!
Can you hear me?
CAN YOU HEAR ME?
Yes! I can hear you, Giggles!
< Don't worry, Tickles.
< I'll have you out in no time! That's what HE thinks!
Is all the fruit juice washed off, Tickles?
Yes, Kevin. You can stop splashing.
< TICKLES! OVER HERE, QUICK! Did you hear that?
-It sounds like he's in trouble.
He's eaten too many bananas, that's all!
I'll go and look, just in case.
-Giggles? Where are you, Giggles?
-Up here, Tickles! Hurry!
What are you doing up there?
I'm tangled up in the branches!
-You have to shake the tree to get me out.
-Shake the tree?
But it's so big!
Tickles, faster! Faster, Tickles, faster!
That'll teach him to spoil my party.
Help! I'm stuck!
Don't worry. I'll help you.
-What were you doing down a snake hole?
-I was trying to reach Tickles.
Tickles is stuck there, too?
Yes. I think he's asleep. He hasn't said a word for AGES.
Well, we had better wake him up, hadn't we?
I can't blow any more, Giggles.
There's only one thing for it.
You'll just have to dig Tickles out.
Ah, Tickles! I see you've managed to get out of that hole you were in.
-Giggles WILL be happy.
Yes. When I get him down from this tree.
Giggles is up in this tree?
Strange... Maybe I can help you.
-Uh-oh! Whoops! ..That was close!
Eddie! There you are! >
What did Aunty Molly tell you about climbing trees?
One last shake, Tickles.
Hold on tight, Giggles!
Oops! Sorry, Tickles!
Tickles! Can you hear me?
Giggles! Can you hear me?
Yes! Yes, Tickles! Where are you?
BOTH: I saved you! ..Huh?
Come on, Giggles and Tickles.
You're welcome to join in our party.
You've both earned it. Look! There's enough fruit for everyone.
'And so we stuffed ourselves silly again.'
Ahem! That was a very nice story, Tickles.
BOTH: Hey, Lucy! Your voice is back.
-Yes, it is! Now I can tell you all a story.
-I don't think so, Lucy.
It's bedtime now.
-ALL: Good night, Lucy!
-Good night, everyone.
