Hi, I'm Andy, and I work here at Pickle's Animal Park.
It's my job to look after all the animals,
and today it's colder than a polar bear's nose, let me tell you.
So I'm off to see if the animals are OK and not too chilly.
Come on, Terence. Time for a bath.
I'm at the home of the tortoise here at the park.
It's really important to keep the tortoise's shell clean,
because it has thousands of tiny little holes that we can't see
that the sun shines through and warms the tortoise up.
So that's why I'm clearing all the holes and scrubbing the shell down.
There we go, Terence! How does that feel?
Oh, it's very ticklish, Andy!
Oh, yeah, just up there. Just to the right. That's the spot!
These are my friends, Octavius and Oscar,
and they are otters, which means they have two layers of fur
to keep themselves warm in the cold water.
The outer layer is waterproof.
And the inner layer is soft and thick.
Well, all in all, it sounds like a great way to keep warm!
-Andy? Are you there, Andy? Over.
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here, over.
Hello, Andy. The freezer's broken in the seal enclosure.
I was wondering if you could take a look at it
before all the frozen fish defrosts and starts to smell! Over.
Absolutely no problem, Mr Pickles. I'll get straight to it.
I'm just going to go on a tea break first. Over.
Marvellous. Pickles out.
Ah, what's that you're working on? That looks interesting.
Ah! It's just my latest invention.
A basically brilliant bird alarm!
Wow! That's amazing! What's it for?
Ah! It's for my garden. Now all I need to do is test it!
How about you? What have you been doing?
Me? Well, I've been to see the otters and the tortoises
to make sure they're nice and warm.
It's really cold out there.
Actually, that bird alarm has reminded me -
I need to check on the birds, too.
I guess otters have got their thick fur,
but Andy, how do birds keep warm?
All sorts of ways, Kip.
Some of them keep warm by laying in the sun,
some of them ruffle their feathers,
and other birds have different tricks up their sleeves. Or wings.
Really? Like what?
There are these birds called emperor penguins,
and they live in a place that's so cold
and so completely covered in snow
that they've learned to keep warm in different ways.
Why don't they fly somewhere warm?
-Because penguins can't fly, Kip.
-What? A bird that can't fly?
-Are you sure?
-I'm absolutely positive.
They use their wings for swimming instead. Like flippers.
-You know what this sounds like, don't you?
-Yes, I do, Kip.
BOTH: Time to go on a wild adventure!
We get to see emperor penguins, and see how they keep warm.
-And you can test my bird alarm!
-Come on, Kip. Let's do it!
-One, gadget pack.
Three, my basically brilliant bird alarm! Ha-ha-ha!
-Just in case we need it.
And last but not least, the Kipmobile!
Seat belts on!
Hit it, Kip!
Woo-hoo-hoo! We're in space!
So, where to, Andy?
You see that big patch of white down there at the bottom?
It's white because it's covered in ice and snow,
and that's where the penguins live.
Antarctica, here we come!
Go, cat-nav, go!
Coming in to land!
-I don't see anything, Andy!
Are you sure we're in the right place?
Kip, Antarctica is one of the coldest,
driest and windiest places on Earth.
There's only a few animals that can survive here.
We've come to see one of the few. They're over there -
the emperor penguins.
You ready, Kip? Let's go and see how emperor penguins keep warm!
Or, you could go, and I could keep a lookout for polar bears.
Polar bears? Polar bears don't live here, Kip.
They live in the Arctic, not the Antarctic.
Oh, well, you can never be too careful.
Besides, it's too cool for cats out there.
OK, well, you stay here, and we'll go and see the emperor penguins.
Phew! Er, I mean, fine!
-We will, Kip.
It really is cold out here.
It's a good thing I'm wearing my nice warm jacket!
Although I'm sure I'm not as warm as they are.
But to show you how they keep warm, I'm going to need
to get closer, and to do that,
I'm going to need to shrink down to their size.
So, here goes. Size of an emperor penguin!
Ah, that's better. Now I should be able to fit right in.
These guys have a really thick layer of fat
underneath their feathers to help them keep warm.
I'm following these penguins to get to the rest of the group,
where they all huddle together to get even warmer.
Oh, look at that!
Oh, I've got to give that a try, that looks like great fun!
Well, that was definitely a lot quicker than walking,
and a lot more fun, too, but now I'm freezing!
I need to do what the emperor penguins do,
and get myself into the middle of that group over there,
where it's nice and warm and I can shelter from the wind. Brrr!
Excuse me! Coming through. Oh, sorry! Oh, that was my foot!
Sorry! Thank you!
That's better. This is much warmer!
You know, these penguins, they're not just trying
to keep themselves warm,
they're trying to keep something else warm, too. Look!
Kip! Kip! Take a look at this.
There's a baby penguin hatching, and his father's feeding him. Look!
Oh, that's amazing, Andy!
But how do they keep warm now they've hatched out?
Well, you see, Kip, the older chicks have lots of soft feathers,
so when they run around, they don't get too cold, like I am.
But the younger ones have to be kept warm all the time, like this.
Oh, I wish I could do that!
It must be really snuggly and cosy under there.
Hey, I've got a good idea!
Size of a baby emperor penguin!
Right! Now to get cosy and warm.
Hey! Hey, stop it, it's tickling me!
Ah, that's it! Now I'm lovely and warm!
Oh, no! Looks like a snowstorm's coming!
Andy! Are you there? Come in, Andy!
Sorry, Kip. I must have fallen asleep.
Where are you?
Well, if I remember correctly, I'm sitting underneath a penguin,
and I'm all cosy and warm.
Well, it's freezing out here, and what's worse,
there's a snowstorm on the way!
OK, Kip. I'm coming out.
-Oh, one question, though.
-How do I get out?
The basically brilliant bird alarm! That should do the trick!
Well done, Kip! Good idea.
Ah, there we go. Ready?
Ah, that's better! I'm out! But now I'm really cold!
Kip, can you come and get me, please? I'm freezing!
Well done, Kip. I can always count on you!
Thanks, penguins, for keeping me warm!
Well, don't worry, Andy.
I'll put the heaters on full, and you can defrost on the way home!
Andy? Are you there, Andy? Over.
Uh-oh! That'll be the boss, Mr Pickles!
Hello, Mr Pickles! Andy here, receiving loud and clear. Over.
Where have you been, Andy?
The freezer is still broken and the frozen fish are beginning to smell!
-Erm, I've just been getting some, erm...
I've just been getting some ice! Over.
Oh, smashing, Andy. Just what we need. Pickles out!
See you next time!

Andy takes Kip on a wild adventure to see emperor penguins in Antarctica. He huddles up in a group of penguins to try and stay warm and even finds a cosy spot under one of the daddies, which ends up being a little bit too comfy.
