# 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane... #

0:00:040:00:07

Hello, I'm Lucy. I live at 64 Zoo Lane.

0:00:070:00:12

And I have some very special neighbours. Look!

0:00:120:00:15

# There's one with a hump and one who can jump

0:00:150:00:18

# And one who is, well, a little bit plump

0:00:180:00:22

# 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane

0:00:220:00:26

# Some like it hot and some like it chilly

0:00:260:00:29

# And some like it both ways

0:00:290:00:31

# And that's a bit silly

0:00:310:00:33

# 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 Zoo Lane

0:00:430:00:46

# Some are spotty, some are stripy

0:00:460:00:49

# Prickly and whirly and furry and slimy

0:00:490:00:53

# Some are quite big

0:00:530:00:54

# And some are very small

0:00:540:00:56

# And the last one's Georgina

0:00:560:00:58

# Who's incredibly tall

MUM: Bedtime, Lucy.

0:01:080:01:11

OK, Mum.

0:01:110:01:13

TAP, TAP, TAP!

0:01:260:01:28

Weee!

0:01:310:01:33

-ALL: Hi, Lucy.

-Hello, everyone.

0:01:360:01:38

What have you done today, young lady?

0:01:380:01:41

I've been to my dance class.

0:01:410:01:43

I learned a new dance.

0:01:430:01:45

-Oh, can you show us?

-I'd love to.

0:01:450:01:48

-But I can't do this dance on my own.

-We'll join in.

0:01:480:01:53

THEY GIGGLE

0:01:530:01:55

Um...OK.

0:01:560:01:58

You stand here, Tickles. And Giggles, you stand on this side.

0:01:580:02:04

Just copy my moves.

0:02:080:02:11

Ha-ha, yoo-hoo!

0:02:150:02:17

Not like that! You have to move elegantly.

0:02:210:02:26

Like this.

0:02:260:02:28

Whoo-hoo!

0:02:300:02:32

You're doing it all wrong.

0:02:320:02:35

-You weren't even trying.

-We were!

0:02:350:02:39

No, you weren't. You were just being silly. Huh.

0:02:390:02:44

Huh.

0:02:440:02:46

How about we all listen to

0:02:470:02:50

a story instead?

0:02:500:02:51

Once a year,

0:02:510:02:53

all the flamingos in Africa

0:02:530:02:55

come together to celebrate the flamingo festival.

0:02:550:03:00

Here they come, here they come!

0:03:020:03:05

So many flamingos!

0:03:050:03:08

-Can you see them, Molly?

-Yes, Pauline. I can see them.

0:03:080:03:12

They're starting to practise their dances now.

0:03:120:03:16

Oh, I just love the flamingo festival.

0:03:160:03:19

All those pretty birds dancing in the sky.

0:03:190:03:22

Molly, I wonder who will be the flamingo queen this year.

0:03:220:03:26

It's your friend. The pink one.

0:03:260:03:29

-Annabelle?

-No, the other pink one.

0:03:290:03:32

Mirabelle? Isabelle?

0:03:320:03:34

-Isabelle, that's the one.

-Oh, how exciting.

0:03:340:03:38

Let's go and find her.

0:03:380:03:41

I saw Isabelle

0:03:410:03:42

at the jungle clearing earlier.

0:03:420:03:44

Why don't you come with me?

0:03:440:03:46

I was just on my way to the jungle to pick some bananas.

0:03:460:03:50

'Every year, one flamingo was chosen to be the flamingo queen.

0:03:510:03:56

'And this year, it was Isabelle's turn.

0:03:560:04:00

'So, Isabelle had to make sure her dance moves were perfect.'

0:04:000:04:06

Oh, Isabelle, that was amazing.

0:04:060:04:09

I am so pleased you are the flamingo queen this year.

0:04:090:04:15

Thanks, Pauline.

0:04:150:04:16

It is quite a complicated dance. It takes a lot of practice.

0:04:160:04:21

My wing is aching.

0:04:230:04:25

I have a cramp in my leg.

0:04:250:04:28

Well, I suppose we can take

0:04:280:04:31

a little break.

0:04:310:04:32

Let's go find some pretty flowers for our costumes.

0:04:320:04:36

-Yes.

-Yes.

0:04:360:04:38

Oh!

0:04:380:04:40

Well, I am going to pick those bananas now. Are you coming?

0:04:400:04:46

What? No, no thanks, Molly.

0:04:460:04:48

I don't really like bananas.

0:04:480:04:50

I prefer fish myself.

0:04:500:04:52

Oh, see you later, then.

0:04:520:04:55

OK, bye.

0:04:550:04:57

Oh!

0:05:000:05:04

Oh!

0:05:060:05:09

'Isabelle, Annabelle and Mirabelle arrived at the Zanban River.

0:05:090:05:13

'There were lots of flowers to choose from.'

0:05:130:05:16

Only pick the finest flowers, Annabelle.

0:05:160:05:19

Our costumes must be perfecto.

0:05:200:05:23

'Meanwhile...'

0:05:230:05:24

Silly me!

0:05:260:05:28

'..I had realised I'd forgotten my fruit basket.'

0:05:280:05:32

PAULINE: Oh!

0:05:320:05:36

'Pauline was dancing like Isabelle. Of course, she knew

0:05:360:05:41

'she could never dance like a real flamingo,

0:05:410:05:44

'but it was fun pretending.'

0:05:440:05:48

Now remember, Annabelle,

0:05:480:05:50

you must keep your neck nice and straight when you twirl.

0:05:500:05:54

And Mirabelle, you must be careful not to... Oh!

0:05:540:05:59

Oh, no!

0:06:010:06:04

Oh!

0:06:040:06:07

Are you all right, Isabelle?

0:06:070:06:10

What happened?

0:06:100:06:11

She tripped over a pebble.

0:06:110:06:14

And hurt her wing.

0:06:140:06:16

Oh, ouch!

0:06:160:06:19

No, Isabelle. Don't flap your wing.

0:06:190:06:22

You must keep it still.

0:06:220:06:23

I can't fly! That means...

0:06:250:06:29

I can't be flamingo queen!

0:06:290:06:32

That means the flamingo festival dance will be...

0:06:320:06:36

a catastrophe!

0:06:360:06:39

Here.

0:06:420:06:45

Annabelle, Mirabelle, just go and tell the others

0:06:450:06:48

the festival is cancelled!

0:06:480:06:52

Maybe someone else could take your place as flamingo queen.

0:06:570:07:01

I don't think so.

0:07:010:07:03

It is no use, Molly.

0:07:030:07:05

We'll never find a replacement in time.

0:07:050:07:08

It would have to be someone who's seen all my dance moves

0:07:080:07:12

and practised them over and over again.

0:07:120:07:16

-Follow me, Isabelle.

-Huh?

0:07:170:07:21

PAULINE: Oh!

0:07:240:07:27

-No, no, no, Pauline, not like that.

-Huh?

0:07:290:07:32

You must keep your neck nice and straight, like this.

0:07:350:07:39

And don't flap your wings so much.

0:07:390:07:41

I know I cannot dance like a flamingo.

0:07:410:07:46

Darling, you CAN dance like a flamingo.

0:07:460:07:50

You just need a bit more practice to be flamingo queen.

0:07:500:07:54

Flamingo queen? Me?

0:07:540:07:57

Oh, I'm not sure I could do it.

0:07:570:08:01

I'll be your teacher. Please?

0:08:010:08:05

Oh, err... All right, then.

0:08:060:08:10

Yippee!

0:08:100:08:13

'And so Isabelle the flamingo became Pauline's dance teacher.

0:08:130:08:18

'She showed Pauline how to twirl and spin and land elegantly,

0:08:180:08:22

'without a bump.'

0:08:220:08:25

I think we are ready.

0:08:270:08:29

'Lots of animals gathered to watch the show at the flamingo festival.'

That's a strange flamingo.

0:09:060:09:10

Ha-ha-ha! That's not a flamingo at all!

0:09:100:09:14

It looks like this year's flamingo queen is a pelican. Ha-ha!

0:09:140:09:19

All: It's Pauline!

0:09:190:09:21

And she looks fabulous.

0:09:210:09:23

Well done, Pauline. You were

0:09:410:09:44

a brilliant flamingo queen.

0:09:440:09:46

Oh, thanks.

0:09:460:09:48

It's only because I had a brilliant teacher.

0:09:480:09:52

My friend, Isabelle.

0:09:520:09:54

Three cheers for Pauline and Isabelle!

0:09:560:10:01

ALL: Hip-hip-hooray! Hip-hip-hooray!

0:10:010:10:05

Hip-hip-hooray!

0:10:050:10:08

And that was a wonderful story, Molly.

0:10:080:10:12

Yep, one of the best.

0:10:120:10:14

Lucy, will you do that dance for us now?

0:10:140:10:17

Only if Giggles and Tickles promise not to be silly.

0:10:170:10:22

Only if Lucy promises not to get cross!

0:10:220:10:25

-TOGETHER:

-Promise!
