To please Mum, Lola is determined to stay clean and tidy for her very first school photograph. And Lola's not very good at staying clean and tidy. What makes it even harder to achieve is that there is a water tray, school lunch and painting class before the school photograph happens. But, as ever, Charlie and Lola find a way of producing a very special photo of Lola after all.
LBB and Faye are working together on a school project, but it turns out they have very different ideas on how to execute it. Will the two friends be able to overcome their differences and work together?
Granny and Grandpa's cat, Caspar, has come to stay with Charlie and Lola. Lola loves looking after Caspar but keeps calling for Charlie's help. Her first call is "by accident" but Lola and Lotta quickly discover that it's quite fun calling for Charlie and watching him come running. Fun, that is, until Caspar is really in trouble and Lola and Lotta really need Charlie: "Help! Caspar is stuck up in the sky, and his hat has gone all wonky!" But Charlie doesn't believe them. Will Lola and Lotta be able to get Caspar out of trouble all by themselves?
This program encourages children to wonder and learn through the medium of play. Music, art and the imagination are all key ingredients as hosts take us on an intimate and fun journey revolving around a week.
Charlie and Marv are trying to do their Spanish homework, which sparks an interest in Lola to speak Spanish too. The boys say she is too young to speak Spanish, so Lola decides she wants to go to "Spainland" herself.
Karen Pang joins her friends on the couch to share a delightful and entertaining peek into the life of one very busy wombat. Don't miss Jackie French and illustrator Bruce Whatley's Diary of a Wombat in Cantonese.
Brewster, Maggie and Ginger talk about all the things they have to keep them warm in the snow. They wonder: How do birds keep warm in winter? Brewster takes them all to the Arctic, where they meet Snowflake the snow owl.
Brewster, Maggie and Ginger Squirrel see the sunset on the beach. Ginger wonders: Where does the sun go after dark? So they ask Sunny Sun, who explains that sometimes he goes to the other side of the world.
Playing Piggy-in-the-Middle with fuzzy pig in a fuzzy felt jungle is good, but you definitely need two people. Charlie is going out, and Lotta has a cold. So Lola has no one to play with. Then she remembers her imaginary friend, Soren Lorenson - nobody can see him, except for Lola.
Brandon discovers a bee and asks Maggie and Brewster: Why do bees make a buzzing sound when they fly? They head to the beehive where they meet the queen bee who explains that the sound is from her wings flapping really fast.
Charlie wins first prize at school for his fantastic homemade rocket, which he made from 10 yoghurt pots and some extra-wide tin foil. As he puts his rocket safely away on the top shelf, he explains to Lola that the rocket really isn't a toy and she must absolutely promise not to touch it or play with it. Then Lola and her imaginary friend, Soren Lorenson, find that they have to transport an elephant back to the jungle, and Soren persuades Lola that the rocket is a really good idea. But it isn't. Whoops!
Introducing Charlie on clarinet and Marv on keyboards! The boys are presenting a piece all about Outer Space, accompanied with music, in front of the whole school tomorrow in assembly. Lola is desperate to join in. But it takes a lot of time and hard work to learn how to play an instrument. Lola is not deterred. Improvising instruments is much more fun and, what's more, Lola's makeshift band turns out to be just what is needed.
Brewster, Maggie and the twins find a toy dinosaur. They wonder: Why don't we see real dinosaurs? Brewster takes them to meet Dino-Biggles, who describes how long ago the weather changed, making dinosaurs extinct.
Lola simply does not have time to play today; she is far too extremely busy organising her office full of mermaids, running her own cafe, dentist and library. She's far too busy to play with Charlie, or Lotta, or even her imaginary friend Soren Lorensen. So she could not possibly find the time to play Charlie's new card game, Flip Flop. However, when Marv comes round to play cards, Lola is not sure that being extremely busy all the time is quite such a good idea.
LBB is very excited that Faye is coming to spend the night and is determined to make this the best sleepover ever. She plans activities to keep the pair entertained all night long as she is worried Faye might get bored.
Finding breakfast takes practice. Andy Day presents a young sea otter watching mum cracking shellfish open. Capuchin monkeys must learn how to break into yummy nuts, and an elephant calf learns how to use its trunk.
The band can't find their toothbrushes and nobody can hear what anybody is saying because Tom Tom's tinkering is making so much noise. Lah-Lah suggests they all help Tom Tom with his sculpture for the Musical Art Fair so the noise will be over faster. When the sculpture is finished the band is surprised to find that Tom Tom has included their toothbrushes in the sculpture!
In the seahorse family, it is the daddy who gives birth to us. He carries us in his sac, until we hatch from the eggs our mommy lay into his sac. There are various species of seahorse. That's why we come in different sizes and shapes. Some live bound to the corals, because the marine currents are very strong. We love exploring the waters we live in.
I am a wild horse who lives in Australia. We were born to run and the difference between me and a farm horse is that I can run freely where I want. I meet with my friends donkeys and lizards at waterholes which are very precious for us. But watch out! We don't like to be pushed around or feel threatened.
Lah-Lah teaches the birds to sing and they sound really good until they get so loud nobody can think anymore. To get some peace and quiet they jump on the bus and lead all the birds back to the park where their tweeting won't bother the band anymore. If they can lull the birds to sleep then they can slip away from the park.
Andy looks at baby animals as they learn how to get around. Wildebeest can learn to stand just minutes after they are born. Adelie Penguin chicks must race to catch a parent for food, caiman need to be dug out of their nest.
Dressing up is one of Lola's absolutely favourite things to do. Now she has this fabulous new alligator costume, she is never going to take it off, not ever. Snap, snap, snap! To Charlie's embarrassment, Lola wears her alligator costume everywhere, including the supermarket and the park. She even plans to wear it for her school talk, entitled All About Me. Oh no. Whatever can Charlie do to stop her making a fool of herself?
Andy Day knows young animals learn by playing. Polar bear cubs in the Arctic and langur monkeys in India all love to play. But gorillas are playtime masters - they climb trees, roll around and try to beat their chests.
We gazelles live on the savanna in Africa. Mummy says that the savanna is a very dry place. My dad has big horns so he can fight to protect us because lions want to eat us. We must be careful even by the river because crocodiles are watching. We eat mainly dry grass and if its not too dry we don't need to drink much.
Andy Day sees how young animals get a ride. In Madagascar, ring-tailed lemurs get a piggyback from mum. Kangaroos have a special pouch to hold their babies, while tiny poison dart frogs carry their tadpoles up into the trees.
Brandon shows Brewster and Maggie his composter. They wonder: Why do flies like to hang around stinky stuff? Inside the composter they meet Mortimer Fly and his mother, who explain that stinky places are ideal areas to lay eggs.
Lah-Lah and the band are sleeping in their tents tonight! Buzz, Mister Saxophone, Squeezy Sneezy and Tom Tom crowd in to their tent but Lah-Lah keeps putting off going into hers, she just needs Five More Minutes. She heads to the kitchen for a snack and the rest of the band join her. Buzz keeps falling asleep in silly positions and Lah-Lah startles him awake with her bubbly energy. Buzz works out that there are too many distractions inside and if they slept outside where it's nice and quiet Lah-Lah would finally get sleepy.
Brewster, Maggie and Hamish wonder: Where does the sky end? Brewster takes them to outer space where they meet Zippy Meteor who can help. They imagine all sorts of scenarios that could explain where the sky ends.
Hello! I'm a kestrel and I've a got a great view from our nest. My mummy is flying around here, somewhere. Kestrels are predators, which means we eat meat. But we only hunt for things that are smaller than us, such as voles, mice, and even some insects. We settle in hollow trees or something similar and lay our eggs. From that point, it takes less than a month for our little kestrels to hatch.
Wild cats and domestic cats are all born the same way but their way of life is a bit different. Wild cats eat what they catch. But domestic cats get food from humans. We domestics don't have to hunt anymore. This wild cat lives all alone. She must find some hideout against bad weather and predators without any help. Domestic cats like the presence of human and a comfortable home. What is better?
Today we will remind everyone of what we've learned in all the previous episodes, about the different lives of our animal friends. They are all here. The koala, the turtle, the cheetah, crocodile, bear, the zebra and the butterfly. What do you remember about them?
Lah-Lah is on the balcony tending to her lovely potted flowers. Unbeknownst to Lah-Lah, the band is secretly building her a vegetable garden in their backyard. Lah-Lah heads over to the band's house for rehearsal only to find very dirty band members. This makes her suspicious but the Secret Sound cupboard calls just in time to distract her. Lah-Lah is inspired by the opera singer in the secret sound game and wants to sing high but the pitch is so high it causes the room to shake and things start dropping off the shelf. She decides singing outside will be safer. Lah-Lah is thrilled at the surprise garden. Tom Tom brings out the finishing touch - Scarecrow Buzz.
Buzz is all in a tizzy! Last night he dreamt up a wonderful song but now he can't remember how it went. The band tries various ways to help Buzz remember but nothing helps. Finally a sound in the Secret Sound game reminds Buzz of the melody and he can write the song!
