Come on, guys, dinner's ready!
This is my good friend, Kai. He's a giraffe.
Do I look really small from up there?
"Yes, Andy, you do. And thank you for my snack."
No problem, Kai.
In the wild, it's really useful for giraffes to have long necks
because it helps them reach their favourite food -
leaves, high up at the top of the trees.
'Andy, are you there, Andy? Over.'
That Mr Pickles, my boss.
Hello, Mr Pickles. Andy here. Over.
'Have you remembered I'm showing some very important visitors
'around the park today, so I'll want everything spotlessly clean.
'It's not just the animals I want to look clean,
'I want you to look smart and tidy too. Over.'
Copy that, Mr Pickles.
I've almost finished with the giraffes' enclosure.
Everything is spick and span.
-Ah, hello, Kip.
-Oh, hi, Andy.
-What are you up to?
I'm just making the final tweaks to my new invention.
It's the super-duper vacuum cooler.
Wow, that sounds amazing!
I've never seen anything quite so exciting.
What does it do?
Well, it blows air on me to keep me cool.
No! Don't touch, Andy!
Oh, what does this button do?
Well, Andy, the green button makes the motor suck rather than blow
and everything it sucks up, it keeps here.
But, it's very important
that you don't press the red button afterwards,
because if you do...
So, it's a cooler and a vacuum cleaner.
Yeah, and it looks like I should use it on you, Andy.
How did you get so dirty?
Well, getting dirty is all part of the job
when you're a park keeper, Kip.
Ah, well, that's why you like it so much.
Do you know, Kip, that some animals
actually like being covered in dust too?
Ugh! I certainly don't!
No, but elephants do.
Would you like to see some covered head-to-toe in dirt?
Wow, would I!
Well in that case, we need to go to one of the dustiest places on earth,
somewhere were there are massive swirling clouds of dust.
What, your bedroom?
No, Kip, it's even dustier than that.
We're going to Kenya in Africa!
Now, a lot of the country is really hot and dusty
but that's where we'll find massive elephants
because elephants love dust.
And if it's really hot,
I can try out my new super-duper vacuum cooler to keep cool.
What are we waiting for? Time to go on a wild adventure!
Woo-hoo! Come on, let's go.
-One - gadget pack.
Two - gizmo!
Three - super-duper vacuum cooler.
-Just in case we need it.
And last but not least, the Kip-Mobile.
Seat belts on.
Hit it, Kip.
Woo-hoo! We're in space!
So, Kenya in Africa, go, Cat-Nav, go!
Warn me the next time you put the Kit-Mobile into dive!
It's really hot in Africa.
I'm going to put some sunscreen on.
-Get ready to roll!
We are in Kenya.
There are all sorts of amazing animals that live here.
Oh, look, there are some giraffes down there just like Kai!
Andy, the Cat-Nav is showing that we're getting near the elephants
and it says elephants are the biggest walking animals on earth.
That's right, Kip.
In fact, they're so big I can already see them down there. Look!
Oh, wow! They're huge!
I can't wait to get a closer look.
The elephants look even bigger than you now, Andy.
Wait until we get even closer, Kip,
then you'll see how big they really are.
They can be twice as big as me.
Actually, Andy, it's a bit too hot for me out here in the sun
I think I'll just stay here in the Kip-Mobile.
No problem, Kip.
Oh, actually, I think with all that fur,
you'll need the super-duper vacuum cooler more than me.
-I'll leave it here.
-Oh, thanks, Andy.
And you should take care in the sun too.
That's all right, I've already got on plenty of sunscreen,
thanks to you, Kip!
Wow, just look at the size of these elephants!
They've got really long trunks
that they use for picking things up, eating and drinking.
I think that baby elephant needs some practice.
Elephants can also use their trunks to make a great trumpeting sound
to say hello or help find each other.
They sometimes trumpet when they're cross too.
Oh, perhaps this elephant thinks I'm cross with him. Oops!
Well, it is really hot here.
I could do with getting some shade.
Look at that baby elephant.
It's keeping out of the sun by walking under its mum.
That gives me a great idea!
Size of a baby elephant.
Here we go!
Great! Now let's find some shade.
That's much better! Ah!
Hey, Kip, how's things over there? I hope you're not too hot!
Oh! Er... Er, yes.
Everything is OK here, Andy. Don't you worry about me!
It looks like you've found plenty of ways to keep cool in the sun, Kip.
Yes, but I never thought of standing under an elephant to get some shade.
Elephants have another amazing way to protect themselves from the sun.
Take a look at this...
Wow! They're blowing dust all over themselves!
That's right, Kip. Elephants love covering themselves in dust.
It protects them from the sun, just like sunscreen.
It also stops the elephants getting bitten by insects.
But I think I'll stick to sunscreen.
Mr Pickles and his guests are visiting later and I need to look...
Oh, no! Andy, you're all dirty again!
You'd better have a wash!
Wow! This is great fun!
This is a brilliant way to get clean!
Bath time was great fun.
Now I'm all clean and spic-and-span,
ready for Mr Pickles and his visitors!
Aagh! Oh, no!
'We have to go, Andy. I hope you're clean for Mr Pickles.'
Er... Not exactly, Kip.
-Andy - upload.
-See you later, elephants!
-Ooh! Hi, Kip!
-Oh, not again!
-You're all filthy!
-I know. Those elephants love getting dirty.
What am I going to do?
I know! Press the green button on my super-duper vacuum cooler,
-and it will clean the dust off you!
VACUUM COOLER WHIRRS
Now that you've cleaned yourself with the super-duper vacuum cooler,
it's really important that you don't press the red button.
'Come in, Andy. Over.'
Uh-oh, that'll be the boss!
Hello, Mr Pickles - it's Andy here. Over.
'Where have you been, Andy? I'm on my way with the visitors.
-'I hope your workshop's clean. Over.'
-Roger that, Mr Pickles.
I'm just about to clean the workshop now. Over.
-'Is your uniform clean? Over.'
Not the red button!
-Oh, no, not again!
Kip, what am I going to do? They'll be here any second!
I'll use the super-duper vacuum cooler to tidy the workshop.
Oh, thanks, Kip!
What would I do without you? See you soon!
