Hello! I'm Lucy.

0:00:070:00:09

I live at 64 Zoo Lane, and I have some very special neighbours. Look!

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

0:00:150:00:19

# And one who is a little bit plump

0:00:190:00:22

# 64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane

# Some like it hot And some like it chilly

0:00:260:00:29

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

# Some are spotty, some are stripy

0:00:460:00:49

# Or prickly and woolly and furry and slimy

0:00:490:00:53

# Some are quite big

0:00:530:00:54

# And some are very small And the last one's Georgina

Bedtime, Lucy! >

0:01:090:01:11

OK, Mum.

0:01:110:01:13

KNOCK, KNOCK!

0:01:260:01:28

Wheeee!

0:01:320:01:34

-Huh?

-ALL: Ommmmmm.

0:01:360:01:38

-Hello, everyone! What ARE you doing?

-Oh, hello, Lucy!

0:01:390:01:44

We're learning some new exercises from our guest.

0:01:440:01:48

This is Cassandra, Lucy.

0:01:480:01:50

Hello, I'm Lucy.

0:01:500:01:53

Oh.

0:01:540:01:55

Ah, ommm... A great pleasure to meet you, Lucy.

0:01:580:02:03

SHE LAUGHS

0:02:030:02:04

I've never seen anyone say hello like THAT before!

0:02:040:02:07

Not everyone says hello in the same way, you know!

0:02:070:02:11

And sometimes that comes as a bit of a shock!

0:02:110:02:16

It certainly did from my friend Horace the Hare.

0:02:160:02:19

-Sounds like a story!

-Tell us, Cassandra.

0:02:190:02:23

As you wish.

0:02:230:02:25

Far away in the East, in the So High Mountains, the sun was shining,

0:02:250:02:30

and Bowbow the panda had set off on his morning walk.

0:02:300:02:34

Bowbow was very friendly and always greeted everyone

0:02:340:02:38

in traditional panda style, with a nice big hug.

0:02:380:02:42

Bowbow say hello to Gertie the Goat.

0:02:480:02:54

Ahhhh. Cosy.

0:02:540:02:57

Everyone loved Bowbow, and we all looked forward to his morning hugs.

0:02:570:03:02

He was a very popular panda.

0:03:020:03:05

-Morning, Bowbow!

-Bowbow give huggy to Cassandra the Crane.

0:03:110:03:17

Aaaah.

0:03:190:03:20

'But there was one creature Bowbow had not yet got to know properly.'

0:03:230:03:27

Horace the Hare. Horace always seemed too busy to say hello to Bowbow.

0:03:270:03:33

Oh, yes, such delicate flowers!

0:03:330:03:36

Just the thing for my lunch table.

0:03:360:03:39

Bowbow give Horace the Hare traditional panda greeting.

0:03:410:03:46

Huggy!

0:03:530:03:54

Aargh!

0:03:540:03:56

Huggy!

0:03:580:03:59

-Where he go?

-So sorry, Bowbow. Can't stop.

0:03:590:04:02

Some other time perhaps. Terrible hurry. Bye!

0:04:020:04:05

Aw, Horace. Too busy for Bowbow hug.

0:04:050:04:09

But the truth was, Horace was NOT too busy - he was nervous.

0:04:110:04:16

Horace had never been hugged before.

0:04:160:04:19

What if Bowbow's paws crush me? I'd better stay out of his way.

0:04:190:04:25

But he was a very friendly panda, and wanted everyone to enjoy his hugs.

0:04:250:04:31

So he decided to keep a special lookout for Horace.

0:04:310:04:34

Ohhh!

0:04:410:04:42

Oh!

0:04:480:04:49

Oh...

0:04:540:04:56

Phew!

0:05:010:05:02

Horace could not hide for ever. And one day Bowbow got lucky.

0:05:020:05:08

Oh! Lovely!

0:05:110:05:14

Greetings, Horace.

0:05:150:05:18

-Ouchy!

-Horace hurt?

0:05:180:05:20

Horace need nice, big, soft Bowbow huggy.

0:05:210:05:25

What? No! I'm fine, really, Bowbow, it was nothing.

0:05:250:05:29

-Huggy make it all better for Horace.

-No!

0:05:290:05:34

Horace no want huggy?

0:05:370:05:40

Indeed. Horace no want huggy.

0:05:400:05:42

-No huggy?

-No huggy. Pandas like hugs. No offence,

0:05:430:05:46

but hares don't like hugs.

0:05:460:05:48

Hare no like hug?

0:05:500:05:53

Maybe goat no like hug...

0:05:530:05:56

Maybe crane no like hug!

0:05:580:06:00

No-one like Bowbow hug.

0:06:060:06:09

Bowbow hug only...Bowbow.

0:06:130:06:17

So the next day, Bowbow did things differently.

0:06:180:06:23

Goodie! Time for my favourite bit of the day!

0:06:230:06:27

-SHE BLEATS

-Morning, Bowbow!

0:06:270:06:29

BOWBOW SIGHS

0:06:290:06:31

Greetings, Gertie.

0:06:310:06:33

Hey, Bowbow, over here!

0:06:350:06:37

You forgot my hug.

0:06:370:06:39

Ah, here comes my hug! Good morning, Bowbow.

0:06:420:06:47

-Greetings, Cassandra.

-Hug time, Bowbow!

0:06:470:06:52

Bowbow?

0:06:520:06:53

Did I say something wrong?

0:06:530:06:55

-Did you see that, Gertie?

-Yeah, he did the same thing to me.

0:06:580:07:02

No big, cosy hug.

0:07:020:07:05

Bowbow SAY greetings.

0:07:070:07:11

Ah, yes, good morning, Bowbow.

0:07:110:07:13

Marvellous, marvellous. HE LAUGHS

0:07:180:07:22

Did you see that?

0:07:220:07:23

BOTH: Ohh.

0:07:230:07:25

Why the long faces?

0:07:250:07:28

It's Bowbow - he's stopped hugging.

0:07:280:07:31

Yes, isn't that great?

0:07:310:07:33

It isn't?

0:07:350:07:36

-SHE BLEATS

-No.

0:07:360:07:38

We love Bowbow's hugs.

0:07:380:07:40

You LIKE being hugged? What's there to like?!

0:07:400:07:44

-You get this warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

-And it's so cosy.

0:07:440:07:50

His hugs are the best bit of my day. Whatever could have made him stop?

0:07:500:07:56

Oh, dear.

0:07:560:07:58

'Horace realised that he had a lot to learn about hugs.'

0:07:580:08:02

So he decided to go

0:08:020:08:04

and see the wise old carp who lived in Mirror Lake.

0:08:040:08:08

Greetings. Who come seeking advice from Confusus the Wise?

0:08:140:08:22

It's me, Horace. I've got a problem.

0:08:220:08:24

There's no problem without answer from Confusus. Explain.

0:08:240:08:31

It's like this. I've upset Bowbow because I don't want to be hugged,

0:08:310:08:36

but now he won't hug anyone and everyone's fed up. What shall I do?

0:08:360:08:40

Confusus say if Horace the Hare no want Bowbow's gift of hug,

0:08:400:08:46

then he should return it.

0:08:460:08:50

Oh, great. Very helpful.

0:08:530:08:55

Thank you, Confusus.

0:08:550:08:57

Horace had no idea what he meant.

0:08:570:09:00

But he was determined to make things right for the other animals.

0:09:000:09:05

-Greetings.

-I'm sorry I told you to stop hugging, Bowbow.

0:09:050:09:10

Bowbow sorry too. Bowbow no want to scare Horace.

0:09:100:09:15

Bowbow no want scare no-one.

0:09:150:09:19

Well, the thing is, I've never actually had a hug before.

0:09:190:09:22

I don't know what hugs are like.

0:09:220:09:24

Bowbow think hug...nice.

0:09:260:09:29

HE SOBS

0:09:290:09:31

Please don't cry, I can't bear it.

0:09:310:09:33

There must be something I can do to cheer you up.

0:09:330:09:36

If you don't want gift of hug, you should return it.

0:09:360:09:42

There there, Bowbow.

0:09:440:09:47

Oooh! Soft and warm!

0:09:470:09:51

Oh, I'm hugging! Hugging feels good!

0:09:510:09:54

Huggy...?

0:09:570:09:58

Horace make hug for Bowbow...?

0:09:590:10:03

Oh! Oh! Ahhh.

0:10:030:10:06

Is this a private hug or can anyone join in?

0:10:080:10:11

Bowbow give traditional panda greeting to everyone.

0:10:110:10:17

'Horace had finally found that warm fuzzy feeling,'

0:10:170:10:22

and learned that hugs from friends are nice to give and to receive.

0:10:220:10:28

I LOVE hugs.

0:10:280:10:31

Especially just before bedtime, eh, Lucy?

0:10:310:10:35

Thanks, Cassandra.

0:10:380:10:40

-Good night, Lucy.

-Night-night, everyone.

0:10:420:10:46

ALL: Night-night, Lucy.
