It's nearly Christmas in Kiwifruit Valley, the home of magical bee Bumble (voiced by entertainer Jason Gunn) and his mates Fishy (iconic 1980s kids presenter Olly Ohlson) and mice Anna, Peek and Boo. Bumble is aimed at a preschool audience and tells stories using puppetry, music and te reo Māori. This special Christmas episode is based around a retelling of the Christian nativity story. Taking on multiple roles, the cast add a special 'Bumble' flavour and gentle humour to a host of classic carols — including 'Jingle Bells' and 'Away in a Manger'.
No matter where you go today, no matter what you do, I believe that you are special, you believe it too...– Bumble the Bee (Jason Gunn) closes his special Christmas episode
