Bumble - Kiwi

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2000

This episode of kids show Bumble sees mice Peek and Boo learning about Aotearoa's national bird — the Kiwi. After Peek seems incredulous that the Kiwi can’t fly, they call on Fishy (Olly Ohlson) to get answers: in song. Efforts to find a Kiwi in Kiwifruit Valley don’t get far, but luckily Bumble (Jason Gunn) is on hand to suggest they try again at night. Bumble combines costumes and puppetry with computer animation. The episode also sees schoolchildren sharing their favourite animals and counting in te reo, plus a couple of musical numbers from Bumble himself.

My favourite animal is a cat and his name is Jacob the cat, and it's because he likes me and I pat him a lot.
