Duggee helps the Squirrels make their own instruments in a craft montage. Tag made shakers, Norrie made drums, Betty made a tubey thing, Happy made plinky plonks and Roly made a balloon. The play together and it is loud but not good. The animals all hide in the barn from the noise. With the help of a little magic and a conductor’s baton, the Squirrels switch to black-tie outfits and play a much more smooth number. The animals prefer this one.
