Episode Summary

Opening Squirrel

Tag is dressed up as a firefighter, driving a toy fire engine.

Set-Up

The Squirrels are off to a jamboree to sing songs, play games, have a picnic and make new friends. They arrive at the Hummingbirds clubhouse and Peggee introduces them to Finbar, Merry, Chad, Oti and Rochelle. They do their welcome dance and are sent off to play. Happy is reluctant but Duggee has his Making Friends Badge.

Story

Duggee advises the Squirrels to be themselves and Peggee offers Duggee a cup of tea. The Hummingbirds and the Squirrels cannot find a game that they both know. Inside Peggee and Duggee discuss hobbies. Peggee suggests things Duggee might be into, snorkelling, opera, curling, hurling, pearling (knitting) or whirling. Outside the Squirrels chat with their Hummingbird equivalents. Finbar and Norrie swap dance moves. Happy and Merry laugh nervously at one another. Betty and Rochelle both have a good idea. Tag and Chad throw a ball at one another. Roly and Oti both shout. Inside things aren’t going very well as they don’t get each other’s jokes. Eventually Happy and Merry discover they both enjoy splashing and everyone joins in. They discover they all enjoy playing and invite Peggee and Duggee to join in. They end the day with a picnic.
