Story

The Squirrels realise they all have different footprints and look for more. Tag finds a tortoise, Norrie finds the mice, Happy find Naughty Monkey, Betty finds Frog and Roly find Ethel the elephant. Then Happy finds some mysterious footprints and Duggee pulls out his Encyclopedia of animal footprints. It’s not the Parisian Puma, the Himalayan Hopping Goat, the Lesser Spotted Lounge Lizard, the Triple Humped Curly Tailed Camel, or the Bottlenosed Biscuit Eating Bright Blue Baboon. They follow the footprints and find Katerina the flamingo. Katerina is the star of the flamingo synchronised swimming team but she has lost her flipper. The Squirrels follow the footprints and find Frog has stolen Katerina’s flipper. Flipper returned, the show starts. The flamingos put on a spectacular show to March Of The Toreadors from Carmen.
