You might be wondering why one day a little crocodile

0:00:350:00:39

was sitting in the middle of nowhere playing a ukulele.

0:00:390:00:44

Well, I can tell you. He was the Koala Brothers' new neighbour

0:00:440:00:49

and he was waiting for Frank to come and pick him up in the plane.

0:00:490:00:54

Back at the homestead, Frank was getting ready to fly out.

0:00:540:00:59

-Stand by!

-Standing by!

0:00:590:01:02

Chocks away, Buster!

0:01:040:01:07

-Chocks away, Frank!

-Get the gate, Ned.

0:01:080:01:12

I'm getting the gate, Frank!

0:01:120:01:15

While Frank collected their new neighbour,

0:01:380:01:42

Buster and Ned had another job to do - one that made them worried.

0:01:420:01:48

What are you two doing?

0:01:480:01:50

-We've got to clean the house by the water hole.

-What? The scary house?!

0:01:500:01:56

The one with the creaky door? I bet you're too scared to go there!

0:01:560:02:01

-We're not scared - are we, Ned?

-N-n-no.

0:02:010:02:06

The old house by the water hole had stood empty for a long time.

0:02:060:02:12

-Do I HAVE to come with you?

-I'm not going on my own!

0:02:120:02:16

Frank said we'd have to get it ready for our new neighbour.

0:02:160:02:21

Even the door made a scary, squeaky noise!

0:02:220:02:26

CREAK! I'M not going near that place!

0:02:260:02:30

-CREAK!

-Ah-h!

-Ah-h!

0:02:300:02:34

Wait, Ned! Wait for me!

0:02:400:02:42

HE GASPS FOR BREATH

0:02:420:02:45

HE GASPS FOR BREATH

0:02:590:03:02

Phew!

0:03:020:03:04

It wasn't long before Frank returned with their new neighbour.

0:03:060:03:11

Hello!

0:03:130:03:15

-Ah, I'm going to like it here!

-Buster, meet our new friend.

0:03:190:03:25

Ah, Mr Buster! Nice to meet you.

0:03:250:03:28

The name's Archibald P Crocodilus. But YOU can call me Archie.

0:03:280:03:32

I hope to make lots of new friends.

0:03:320:03:35

Let's help Archie take his things to the water hole.

0:03:350:03:40

Buster and Ned cleaned the house - didn't you, Buster?

0:03:400:03:44

Um...

0:03:440:03:47

Buster didn't want to admit they were too scared to clean the house.

0:03:470:03:53

And no-one was more scared than Ned!

0:03:590:04:03

Ah! This place looks lovely!

0:04:060:04:09

I can't wait to meet everyone.

0:04:090:04:12

I love having visitors and making friends!

0:04:120:04:16

Oops! You DID clean the house?

0:04:160:04:20

CREAK! Ha! Ha-ha! What a funny noise!

0:04:200:04:26

"Funny"? Most people think that's scary!

0:04:260:04:29

-Oh, no.

-I

-don't. I think it's funny!

0:04:290:04:33

Listen... CREAK, CREAK!

0:04:340:04:39

Like funny, squeaky music!

0:04:420:04:45

I love it!

0:04:450:04:47

At least Archie was happy in his new home!

0:04:480:04:52

The next morning, Alice came to the water hole.

0:04:540:04:57

-She'd never liked the scary house.

-CREAK!

0:04:570:05:01

Ah-h!

0:05:010:05:03

Hello?

0:05:030:05:06

FLIES BUZZ

0:05:130:05:16

SOMEONE PANTS FOR BREATH

0:05:160:05:20

Hah! Oh! Hoo!

0:05:200:05:23

Morning! I haven't had any visitors yet.

0:05:230:05:27

-It's early days. Give it time.

-Will do!

0:05:270:05:31

-Come on, Ned! Come out and meet Archie.

-I'm not coming out.

0:05:370:05:42

Anyone who lives in a scary house must be scary!

0:05:420:05:46

Still no visitors. D'you think I'll get to make some new friends soon?

0:05:460:05:51

I'm sure you will.

0:05:510:05:53

You know, chaps, I've had an idea.

0:05:530:05:57

I've decided to invite everyone to a party at my house.

0:05:570:06:02

That way, I can make lots of new friends.

0:06:020:06:06

I think that's a very good idea.

0:06:060:06:08

I'll give you a list of people to invite.

0:06:080:06:12

So Archie made up some party invitations

0:06:140:06:18

and posted them in town.

0:06:180:06:21

-Have you got your invitation to the party, George?

-What party?

0:06:220:06:27

At the house by the water hole.

0:06:270:06:30

Oh! Yeah... I think I'm busy that day. I... Gotta go! ..See ya!

0:06:300:06:37

Everyone got their invitations.

0:06:400:06:43

Oh!

0:06:440:06:47

Oh! Are you going, Josie?

0:06:490:06:52

To the scary house? I don't...

0:06:520:06:55

No-one's going - not to the scary house!

0:06:550:06:59

-Oh...!

-TOOT!

0:07:030:07:06

Um, Frank, when can we eat?

0:07:060:07:09

I told you! We have to wait until everyone else arrives.

0:07:090:07:14

-Why don't we play some music?

-Um, not tonight, if you don't mind.

0:07:140:07:19

Though Archie put a brave face on it,

0:07:190:07:23

he was disappointed hardly anyone had come.

0:07:230:07:26

I AM a nice chap, don't you think?

0:07:260:07:29

-Yes, of course you are, Archie.

-Definitely. ..Can we eat?

0:07:290:07:34

Then why didn't anyone come to my party?

0:07:340:07:39

-FOOTSTEPS CRUNCH

-Somebody's coming!

0:07:390:07:42

-Ah-h!

-Hello, Ned! I didn't think you were coming.

0:07:450:07:50

Buster said there'd be balloons and cake. Any left?

0:07:500:07:54

Hello, Mr Ned!

0:07:540:07:57

Oh, come in, come in!

0:07:570:08:00

CREAK! No!

0:08:000:08:04

The sound of the scary door! Please don't open it!

0:08:040:08:08

-That's it!

-I

-know what the problem is!

-You DO?

0:08:080:08:12

CREAK, CREAK!

0:08:140:08:17

-Everyone thinks this old house is scary!

-It IS, isn't it?

0:08:170:08:23

-Doesn't seem scary to me!

-That's why nobody's come -

0:08:230:08:27

they're scared of this old house!

0:08:270:08:30

-Is that true, Ned?

-Mmm.

-Hmm.

0:08:300:08:34

I've got an idea!

0:08:350:08:38

And so the next day, Frank and Buster - and Ned -

0:08:380:08:42

helped Archie redecorate the house.

0:08:420:08:46

They even oiled the squeaky door!

0:08:460:08:49

What d'you think, Mr Ned? I like it!

0:08:590:09:03

Nobody could be scared now!

0:09:030:09:06

And so the new friends decided to have ANOTHER party!

0:09:060:09:11

And this time EVERYONE came along!

0:09:110:09:14

-EVERYONE CHEERS

-Thanks to Frank and Buster,

0:09:170:09:20

the party was a big success.

0:09:200:09:23

-I

-was never scared! As soon as I got my invitation...

0:09:230:09:28

And Archie finally did get his wish to make lots of new friends!
