Hello. I'm Lucy.

0:00:070:00:09

I live at 64 Zoo Lane.

0:00:090:00:11

And I have some very special neighbours - look!

0:00:110:00:15

# There's one with a hump

0:00:150:00:17

# And one who can jump

0:00:170:00:19

# And one who is a little bit plump

0:00:190:00:22

# 64, 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane

0:00:220:00:25

# Some like it hot

0:00:250:00:27

# And some like it chilly

0:00:270:00:29

# And some like it both ways - that's a bit silly

0:00:290:00:33

# 64, 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane

0:00:330:00:36

# Some are friendly, some are scary

0:00:360:00:39

# But one thing is sure - not one is ordinary

0:00:390:00:43

# 64, 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane

0:00:430:00:46

# Some are spotty

0:00:460:00:48

# Some are stripy

0:00:480:00:49

# And prickly and woolly

0:00:490:00:51

# And furry and slimy

0:00:510:00:53

# Some are quite big, and some are very small

0:00:530:00:56

# And the last one's Georgina who's incredibly tall

0:00:560:01:00

-Bedtime, Lucy!

-OK, Mum.

The Story of the Great Rains.

0:01:170:01:20

TAP TAP TAP

0:01:270:01:28

Wheeeeeeee!

0:01:310:01:32

Hello, everybody!

0:01:350:01:37

SNORING

0:01:380:01:41

SNORING STOPS GROANS AND MUMBLES

0:01:420:01:44

ALL: Hello, Lucy!

0:01:440:01:48

What's the matter? You all seem really tired.

0:01:480:01:52

BEAR YAWNS LOUDLY

0:01:520:01:54

MUMBLING

0:01:540:01:57

Yes. We've had a busy day at the zoo today.

0:01:570:02:00

Oh? Does that mean no story tonight?

0:02:000:02:04

Wouldn't you rather have a nap, Lucy?

0:02:040:02:07

LUCY SIGHS

0:02:090:02:11

WATCH OUT! BEHIND YOU!

0:02:140:02:16

ALL: Huh?!

0:02:160:02:19

What's going on?

0:02:190:02:22

-LUCY GIGGLES

-It was just a joke!

0:02:220:02:25

Well, we don't think your joke was very funny, Lucy.

0:02:250:02:30

I thought it was scary, actually.

0:02:300:02:32

-And I hurt my bottom!

-Oh. Sorry. I just wanted to wake you up.

0:02:320:02:38

I was bored.

0:02:380:02:40

CHUCKLES

0:02:400:02:41

That reminds me of The Story of the Great Rains.

0:02:410:02:45

ALL: Oh, yes! THEY CHUCKLE

0:02:450:02:48

A story? I'd love to hear it, Nelson!

0:02:480:02:51

Well, if you're not too tired, that is.

0:02:510:02:54

-BOTH:

-We are reeeeeeeally tired.

0:02:540:02:58

THEY YAWN DRAMATICALLY

0:02:580:03:01

THE OTHERS CHUCKLE

0:03:010:03:04

Giggles and Tickles are only saying that

0:03:040:03:07

because this story is about something silly they did.

0:03:070:03:11

Hee-hee! I think I'm going to like this!

0:03:110:03:14

Once a year, there is a very heavy rain in Africa

0:03:140:03:18

which floods the entire savannah.

0:03:180:03:23

The only place that doesn't get flooded is the Blue Mountain.

0:03:230:03:29

One year, we were getting ready to spend a long time

0:03:290:03:33

on top of the mountain.

0:03:330:03:35

There! That should be enough food.

0:03:390:03:42

GEORGINA SIGHS

0:03:420:03:44

I am not looking forward to being stuck on top of this mountain

0:03:440:03:48

when the rain comes - it's so BORING!

0:03:480:03:51

None of us like the Great Rains,

0:03:510:03:54

so we try and have as much fun as possible, while it's still dry.

0:03:540:03:59

EVERYONE LAUGHS AND SHOUTS

0:03:590:04:02

To me! To me!

0:04:040:04:06

To you. To you.

0:04:060:04:08

BOTH: We want to play too!

0:04:110:04:13

EVERYONE STOPS Ahem!

0:04:130:04:15

Have you forgotten? It's your turn this year.

0:04:150:04:21

-THEY SIGH

-Yes, we know, we know...!

0:04:210:04:25

Every year, we take it in turn to watch out for the first drop

0:04:250:04:29

of the Great Rains.

0:04:290:04:31

And this particular year it was the monkeys' turn.

0:04:310:04:35

LAUGHING AND SHOUTING

0:04:370:04:40

Can you sere a dark cloud yet, Tickles?

0:04:410:04:45

No!

0:04:450:04:47

This is SO boring!

0:04:490:04:51

Why can't we have fun like the others?

0:04:530:04:56

-HE CHUCKLES

-I just had a brilliant idea!

0:04:560:05:01

-What is it? Tell me!

-WHISPERING AND GIGGLING

0:05:010:05:04

Here, Georgina, pass it to Doris, the champion fruit-baller!

0:05:060:05:11

Warning! The Great Rains are coming!

0:05:140:05:19

Everybody run to the Blue Mountain!

0:05:190:05:22

THEY CACKLE MADLY

0:05:270:05:30

Nothing but blue skies.

0:05:370:05:40

Hmm. Giggles and Tickles must have got it wrong.

0:05:400:05:44

SNIGGERING FROM TREETOPS

0:05:460:05:50

Oops. Sorry. It must have been a drop of nectar.

0:05:500:05:54

From a flower that fell on our heads.

0:05:540:05:57

Hmm...

0:06:000:06:02

Maybe you should pick all those flowers.

0:06:020:06:05

Warning! The first rain drop is here!

0:06:200:06:24

Hurgh!

0:06:240:06:26

They're right!

0:06:260:06:28

It's the Great Rains - run for the Blue Mountain!

0:06:280:06:32

MONKEYS CACKLE HELPLESSLY

0:06:340:06:37

This is SOOOOO funny!

0:06:370:06:43

Hey, you're all sticky, Herbert.

0:06:460:06:49

Hm? Oh.

0:06:490:06:50

That's strange. Erm. Num num num...

0:06:500:06:54

These aren't raindrops! It's... It's fruit juice!

0:06:540:06:59

Those monkeys have played another joke on us.

0:06:590:07:03

ALL GASP AND GROWL

0:07:030:07:05

Now don't move from that tree!

0:07:070:07:10

-Georgina, are you ready?

-Yes.

0:07:100:07:13

So, Georgina the Giraffe took the monkeys' place

0:07:130:07:17

on top of the tall tree.

0:07:170:07:19

GROANS QUEASILY

0:07:190:07:21

Oooh. Oop. Oh, dear. Oh! Oh.

0:07:210:07:25

It wasn't that funny, after all.

0:07:270:07:31

We're even more bored now.

0:07:310:07:34

Oh! Oh!

0:07:340:07:36

LAUGHTER

0:07:410:07:44

Warning! The Great Rains have come!

0:07:440:07:49

You've played that joke on us already.

0:07:490:07:51

Pass me the ball, Herbert!

0:07:510:07:54

But this time it's really real.

0:07:550:07:59

Listen, Giggles and Tickles, we've had enough of your tricks.

0:07:590:08:03

Georgina is the new watcher. And she's the one who'll tell us.

0:08:030:08:08

Well, what's she waiting for then?

0:08:080:08:10

Georgina? Georginaahhh!

0:08:100:08:13

Oh! Ah! What? Yes?

0:08:140:08:18

Have you felt the first drop of the Great Rains?

0:08:180:08:22

Er... NO!

0:08:220:08:24

No, nothing to report.

0:08:240:08:26

Thank you, Georgina.

0:08:260:08:28

What?! This isn't right.

0:08:280:08:30

Georgina! Look! The cloud!

0:08:310:08:34

Huh? Ah... The... What?

0:08:350:08:37

Oh! RAIN! Oh, RAIN!

0:08:390:08:41

Oh, quick! Everybody to the Blue Mountain!

0:08:430:08:47

'But it was too late.

0:08:470:08:49

'The water had already started to rise.'

0:08:490:08:52

Oh, no!

0:08:520:08:54

Hey, I've got an idea. And this time it's a good one!

0:08:540:09:00

Oh, thanks! Very clever.

0:09:230:09:26

MONKEYS: Oh, no!

0:09:260:09:28

There were no leaves left to build a boat for Giggles and Tickles.

0:09:280:09:32

CRAZED CHATTERING

0:09:320:09:36

-Is everybody safe?

-ALL: YES!

0:09:400:09:44

No! We're missing Giggles and Tickles!

0:09:440:09:48

Poor Giggles and Tickles.

0:09:500:09:52

We felt sorry for them.

0:09:520:09:54

At least we've got something to eat.

0:09:540:09:59

Are you coming?

0:09:590:10:01

TOBY! Oh, let's go!

0:10:010:10:02

GIGGLING AND CHATTERING

0:10:140:10:17

And in the end, it was the happiest Great Rains we'd ever had!

0:10:220:10:28

And since that day,

0:10:280:10:30

Giggles and Tickles never play any more silly jokes.

0:10:300:10:34

Sorry, Nelson. I won't do it again either.

0:10:340:10:39

EVERYONE LAUGHS

0:10:390:10:41

Thanks for the story. Goodnight, everyone.

0:10:410:10:45

ALL: Goodnight, Lucy.

The savannah animals are busy preparing for the great rains, which are due any day. The rains flood the plains every year, and they will have to take shelter on Blue Mountain. This year it is Giggles and Tickles's turn to keep watch for the start of the rain.
