Beneath the American prairies, deep underground,

0:00:020:00:07

the Little Prairie Dogs are stirring.

0:00:070:00:12

Come on, Little Prairie Dogs! Wake up!

0:00:120:00:16

It's time to tell a story of life on the prairies.

0:00:160:00:20

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep!

0:00:280:00:31

ALARM CLOCK RINGS

0:00:570:00:59

Yay! It's time to get up.

0:01:020:01:04

Come on, Tate, we've got to get ready for school.

0:01:040:01:07

Today we're learning the Prairie Dog Code.

0:01:070:01:10

Miss Humphries is going to teach us

0:01:100:01:13

all the warning calls we need to keep us out of danger.

0:01:130:01:17

-HE YAWNS

-Oh, just another five minutes!

0:01:170:01:21

Mum! Tate won't get up and we have to get ready for school.

0:01:210:01:25

We've got a big day ahead today.

0:01:250:01:28

Oh, Sage, I haven't had any breakfast yet.

0:01:280:01:32

But I'm excited. Tate, come on! I don't want to be late.

0:01:320:01:37

Miss Humphries will take away one of my gold stars if I'm late.

0:01:370:01:41

But I don't want to go to school.

0:01:410:01:44

I just want to go out and play and have fun today.

0:01:440:01:48

School IS fun, Tate! Come on.

0:01:480:01:50

-BELL RINGS

-Oh-h!

0:01:500:01:53

It looks like an early start on the prairie this morning.

0:01:530:01:57

The school bell has rung and all the Little Prairie Dogs

0:01:570:02:01

say goodbye to their families and make their way to class.

0:02:010:02:06

Keep up, Tate! We want to get there early so we can stand at the front.

0:02:060:02:12

Do we?!

0:02:120:02:14

Oh, there she is! There she is!

0:02:200:02:23

Good morning, Miss Humphries.

0:02:230:02:25

One by one, the Little Prairie Dogs turn up for class

0:02:250:02:30

and let Miss Humphries know they've arrived with a prairie dog call.

0:02:300:02:34

SQUEAKS

0:02:340:02:36

CHATTERS

0:02:360:02:38

Tate! Stop eating and say good morning.

0:02:400:02:43

Morning, Miss Humphries.

0:02:430:02:45

Tate, what IS that you're eating?

0:02:450:02:48

An apple.

0:02:480:02:51

I brought that for the teacher, Tate, not for you.

0:02:510:02:55

Whoops! Sorry.

0:02:550:02:57

SQUEAKS

0:02:570:03:00

What's she saying, Sage?

0:03:000:03:02

Miss Humphries is going to take us on a school trip.

0:03:020:03:06

There are lots of dangerous animals on the prairie

0:03:060:03:10

and we need to learn special calls to warn the town if danger is near.

0:03:100:03:14

Yippee! I love school trips.

0:03:140:03:17

Today might not be so bad after all.

0:03:170:03:19

School trip, school trip, school trip, Sage! Yay!

0:03:190:03:23

I know it's exciting, Tate, but you must listen.

0:03:230:03:27

You have to learn these calls in case you need to warn the town one day.

0:03:270:03:31

Oh, Sage! You're so good at everything.

0:03:310:03:35

You'll save us if we get into trouble.

0:03:350:03:38

Tate, I might not always be with you. You need to learn for yourself.

0:03:380:03:43

This is the warm-up lesson. We need to practise our calling voices.

0:03:430:03:48

Come on, Tate. Everyone has to join in. Copy me.

0:03:480:03:51

CHATTERS

0:03:510:03:53

La-la-la-la-la-la-la!

0:03:530:03:56

Tate!

0:03:560:03:57

That didn't sound anything like mine. Try again.

0:03:570:04:01

CHATTERS

0:04:010:04:04

Well done, Tate. That's better.

0:04:040:04:06

All the Little Prairie Dogs are very excited about their school trip.

0:04:060:04:11

ALL: Yay! Yippee!

0:04:110:04:13

Miss Humphries rounds up the class and they head out over the prairie.

0:04:130:04:19

ALL: Yay! Yippee!

0:04:190:04:20

Come on, stay close to me, Tate. We have to keep up with the teacher.

0:04:250:04:30

Tate, look!

0:04:340:04:36

Over there - it's a badger.

0:04:360:04:40

We mustn't get too close, cos they're a big danger to prairie dogs.

0:04:400:04:45

If a badger is coming near our town, we have to shout really loudly.

0:04:450:04:50

Listen to Miss Humphries. She's about to show us how to do a badger call.

0:04:500:04:55

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep!

0:04:570:05:00

Miss Humphries asks all the Little Prairie Dogs to repeat the call,

0:05:000:05:05

and they all do it very well.

0:05:050:05:07

All, that is, apart from Tate.

0:05:070:05:11

Tate! The teacher is asking you to repeat the badger call.

0:05:110:05:14

And Tate, stop eating!

0:05:140:05:18

I can't say it properly, Sage. If I hide behind here, she won't see me.

0:05:180:05:23

Don't be so silly, Tate. Come back out here and answer Miss Humphries.

0:05:230:05:28

OK, OK.

0:05:280:05:30

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep!

0:05:300:05:32

Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.

0:05:320:05:35

No, Tate! Listen again and copy me.

0:05:350:05:38

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep!

0:05:380:05:41

You'll get it. You just have to pay attention.

0:05:410:05:44

Yum, yum...yum, yum.

0:05:440:05:47

Think about it, Tate.

0:05:470:05:50

Right. Concentrate.

0:05:500:05:52

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep!

0:05:520:05:58

I did it, Sage. I did the badger warning call. Did you hear me?

0:05:580:06:02

I did, Tate. Well done.

0:06:020:06:05

Now come on. We have to move on and learn another word.

0:06:050:06:08

-Miss Humphries has gone already.

-Sage, what's that?

-A butterfly.

0:06:080:06:14

It's beautiful, isn't it?

0:06:140:06:15

I want to learn how to say that in a prairie dog call.

0:06:150:06:19

No need, Tate. Butterflies are harmless, so there's no warning call.

0:06:190:06:24

But there are other things we need to be afraid of. Look -

0:06:240:06:27

the class has stopped over there.

0:06:270:06:30

The teacher must have seen something up ahead. Quick!

0:06:300:06:34

It's a coyote, Tate.

0:06:350:06:37

Miss Humphries is going to teach us the coyote warning call.

0:06:370:06:41

Listen carefully. This one's really important.

0:06:410:06:45

So Miss Humphries shouts the coyote warning call loud and clear...

0:06:450:06:50

..and listens as all the Little Prairie Dogs repeat it.

0:06:520:06:56

Come on, Tate. You must try the coyote call.

0:06:560:06:59

Oh, you do it, Sage.

0:06:590:07:02

You must try, Tate. Listen to me.

0:07:020:07:04

Eek! Eek! Eek! Eek! Eek!

0:07:040:07:07

Imagine if there was a coyote standing right next to you.

0:07:070:07:11

-Think how loudly you'd shout then!

-La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la!

0:07:110:07:19

Oh, I'm just no good at learning new calls.

0:07:190:07:23

We'll practise at home, Tate.

0:07:230:07:25

I'll help you.

0:07:250:07:27

SCHOOL BELL RINGS

0:07:270:07:28

Thank you, Miss Humphries. See you tomorrow.

0:07:280:07:32

Thanks for our school trip, Miss Humphries.

0:07:320:07:35

Now we can go home and play. Yippee!

0:07:350:07:38

-Come on, we'll practise the warning calls on our way back.

-YOU can, Sage.

0:07:380:07:43

I'll just run.

0:07:430:07:45

Sage gets a big kiss from Mum when she gets home.

0:07:460:07:50

Mum's very pleased to hear

0:07:500:07:53

they've learned the prairie dog warning calls. Tate's happy playing.

0:07:530:07:58

Wait a minute. What's that over there?

0:07:580:08:00

Oh, no, oh, no!

0:08:000:08:02

It's the fox. I don't know the warning call for fox.

0:08:020:08:06

And he's really close to our town. I know foxes are dangerous

0:08:060:08:10

and I should call out. But I'm no good at calling.

0:08:100:08:14

What should I do? Oh! I have to try.

0:08:140:08:18

Nyup! Nyup! Nyup!

0:08:180:08:21

Oh, no, that doesn't sound right.

0:08:210:08:24

La-la-la-la-la-la-la! Nor does that.

0:08:260:08:31

Oh, no, oh, no! He's getting closer. I've got to get it right.

0:08:310:08:34

Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Eep! Yay!

0:08:340:08:40

Tate's warning calls are heard by the whole town.

0:08:400:08:44

Everyone rushes underground and out of danger.

0:08:440:08:47

I did it! I did it! I saved the town!

0:08:470:08:52

-I'm so proud of you, Tate.

-I didn't think I was good at danger calls,

0:08:520:08:57

but I am. I did it! And we're all safe.

0:08:570:09:00

Tate, I told you school was fun.

0:09:000:09:02

By practising the calls you learned, you've saved the town from danger.

0:09:020:09:08

Well done, little brother.

0:09:080:09:10

So with our Little Prairie Dogs back home, safely underground,

0:09:100:09:15

it's time for us to say goodbye from the North American prairies.
